<< NEW MEGA THREAD THIS MAY TAKE SOME TIME SO PLEASE BE PATIENT>> In November 2016 when it became apparent that @realdonaldtrump had won the US Presidential Election the famous quote by Sir Edward Grey came to mind… "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see...
...them lit again in our life-time.” That was my feeling about the United States. That is still my feeling almost 18 months later. I believe every person though deserves a chance to prove themselves. On their actions, on their decisions that has an impact not just within the...
the United States but on the wider world. That is why I am deeply involved in the #resistance and why I will continue to do so. So review @realdonaldtrump and his flawed, kakocracy, mendacious, self serving disastrous Presidency so far… I would need to write a book to........
A THREAD ON #ISRAEL'S AIRSTRIKES IN #SYRIA. A relative of mine, who will remain nameless, is a source inside the Syrian Army. I recently spoke to him regarding the Israeli strikes. I told him that I did not believe #Russia would greenlight an Israeli strike of such magnitude...
I was told that #Putin, who many are saying gave #Netanyahu a "greenlight", did nothing of the sort. The Israelis were not given a greenlight by Putin, nor do they possess some magical airforce/bombs...rather, what they did was simplistic...and very stupid...
Russia and the U.S. have an understanding regarding the flight-paths of their fighter jets - they each have each other's unique transponder signals - the Israelis decided to fly into Syria, via Jordan, while transmitting a U.S. transponder signal.
COMEY MEMOS: (THREAD) Working my way through the 15 pages of #ComeyMemos. Here are the most important and/or shocking revelations: 1/
During #Comey's 1/6/17 at Trump Tower, @Comey told Trump that the Russians allegedly had tapes involving Trump & prostitutes at a Moscow hotel in 2013. Could these be the infamous #PeeTapes? #ComeyMemos 2/
In May of 1997, @VP Mike Pence had a radio show where he suggested that adultery should be a crime in the US. Trump is accused of adultery & #SexualAssault while venal hypocrite Pence stands by. #StormyDaniels
Eric Greitens is a protégé of @VP Mike Pence. Before he was elected Missouri's governor, married Republican Eric Greitens raped a woman, struck her in the face & called her a "whore," the woman told a Missouri House committee.
Trump wants a dictatorship and Pence wants a Theocracy. They meet in the middle with #Putin. #ImpeachPence
#Syria UPDATE: 1. So, it appears #Russia, #US working on de-escalation options now via a number of "middle men". RUS military stated earlier it's been in touch w/ American Joint Chief of Staff over the issue & there're Rus-#NATO communication/talks via #Turkey military.
2.#Putin spoke on the phone w/ #Netanyahu earlier today. #Russia Prez said #Syria sovereignty should be respected, urged to refrain from actions that "could further destabilize the situayion in the country." #Israel's PM stood the ground on #Iran's prwsence in SYR as unacceptable
3. In #Moscow rumors have it #Netanyahu playing important intermediary role b/n #Putin & #Trump now, (an option #Russia has long been favoring) but no details on how big his role is. Anyways, some kind of deal to deconflict is being attempted
In few moments will share some information about the forthcoming war in #Syria.
1+/ The US/EU war on Syria is expected in the next 10 hours according to sources in #Syria close to decision makers.
All Syrian troops were ordered to empty their barracks and keep 5% presence only.
2+/ #USA and #EU may target - as expected - the Syrian Air Force (many dislocated and other spread but not flying), the central for command and control, all radars and known anti-air missiles, Ministry of Defence, Presidential Palace and other sensitive Syrian bases.
BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.
2. Three years later in 1984, David #Bogatin bought an apartment in #TrumpTower on Fifth Avenue, paying $6 million to buy five luxury condos. #Trump personally attended the closing, along with #Bogatin.
1.Len #Blavatnik owns a company called Al-Altep Holdings and Access Industries, and has contributed vast amounts of money to the #GOP and #Senate Leadership Fund and #Trump, inclusive of 1 Million to the Inauguration of #Trump.
UNCONFIRMED reports about #Russia and #US moves in #Syria over 24 hours:
1.Rus media (mostly conservative/"patriotic") report Russia, America have been amassing militaries in & around Syria
2.#Russia delivered additional S400 systems,dozens of Su-30СМ & Su-35 mil aircrafts, ships, submarines, paratroopers, spetsnaz forces
3.#Russia also increased its naval group up to two dozens warships, including up to six subs-unprecedented concentration of RUS navy on a terrain. Frigates "Admiral Grigorovitch", "Admiral Essen" already entered Mediterranean; so did LLS "Orsk" & "Minsk"; escort «Pytlivyj».
Seems clear where Trump's now headed. He hired diGenova to FoxNewsify his defense. It may work on those already awash in toxic Fox propaganda. But it won't work on Mueller. He'll have to be fired+/Trumpists will manufacture some crisis to end Russia probe. WHERE RU GOP CONGRESS??
UGH John Bolton was seen at the WH today. Is another Fox News blowhard propagandist about to get hired by Trump…to replace McMaster as National Security Adviser?? @ColinKahl is right. We're all gonna die.
What is GOP Congress waiting for? Are they complicit w/ Russia too??
Senator @MarcoRubio: "Russia's election is a farce. I will stand with the Russian people in your fight for freedom." Watch first ever #PutinCon live stream here: putincon.com (Beware the nose)
.@Kasparov63#PutinCon: We thought about opening our conference with a moment of silence for the many victims of Putin. But they were not silent. We could spend the whole day saying 'We told you so.' But the world wasn't ready to listen. Putin was welcomed as a democratic leader
.@Kasparov63: When Putin saw he was not challenged by West, he didn't have to pretend to be a democratic leader. He cracked down, destroyed the opposition & entered the final stage of dictatorship. He no longer needed friends; he needed enemies–"invaders from outside." #PutinCon
