A #thread on the rising encroachment of the #ChristoIslam Indian Judiciary on Hindu traditions in the name of #reform.

I'll be examining the judgement given by the Tripura High Court on animal sacrifice for Maa Tripurasundari, shared by @LiveLawIndia livelaw.in/top-stories/tr…
@LiveLawIndia Let's examine who were defending the religious practice.

Lo! IAS officers, or government officials! Not a single priest/Shakta practitioner was called in to defend.

This was rigged from the start.
#SaveOurTripurasundari #FreeOurTemples
@LiveLawIndia @ReclaimTemples @lobonkha @Aabhas24 @Swamijitweets Please read the part said "As a corollary...."

It says, "..not being an essential part of religion.."
Only when the #ChristoIslam Indian Judiciary confuses an umbrella religion consisting of thousands of practices with monotheistic ones, you'll see this. #SaveOurTripurasundari

More Old Bailey Sophistry from Codpiece Cox admitting that in order that today's vote is NOT an attempt to repeat #MV2 (to comply with Speaker Bercow's re-iteration of 1604 convention) it is also NOT a #MV in sense of #EUWA18 Section 13.1.b

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Attempt by Codpiece Cox to scare House into voting in a #MeaninglessVote for #WA (only) solely to secure the offered (actually only technical) extension of #BrexitDay from Apr 12 to May 22 sans guarantee of any other extension. Sophistry.

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Of course, if the House falls for Codpiece Cox's scare tactics, none of this will figure in future utterances by #TheresaMay's #Brexihadis - the headlines will scream 'Parliament approves #Brexit arrangements' (sans qualification or caveat).

LONG THREAD: With today's announcement of substantial investment in data-driven pretrial criminal legal system reform, we are long-overdue for a broad conversation on addressing community needs, the role of philanthropy, & the ethics of certain models of social science research.
We hope this will be a starting point, though it appears the train has already left the station:

Good quality research. Evidence-based. Data-driven.

These buzzwords are quite popular in #cjreform circles, among nonprofits, researchers, foundations, & elected officials.
Yet no one required such rigorous investigation to incarcerate millions of people, including hundreds of thousands pretrial, which has caused generations of harm.

Research did not create our present criminal punishment system.

Racism & fear did.

1. #Brexit sec: EU may not agree to #ExtendA50

ME: True...so to prevent this #BrexitShambles protect Rights & stop the haemorrhage of wealth & jobs we need to #RevokeA50 #StopBrexit & #Remain in Control in the EU with our current Best Possible Deal. #FBPE theguardian.com/politics/2019/…
2. And B4 you spout the usual #Brexit BS. It was not the largest vote in History if you consider the proportion of the Electorate.
Either way the opinion of 51.8% Voting still =
37% Voters
26.5% of the Ppl
Compound that with
Lies
Illegalities
Lost Mandates
NOTHING LEFT TO RESPECT
3. #Brexit is a Far Right Tory CON the tragedy is that too many Labour MPs are making themselves COMPLICIT.
Any version of #BrexitShambles
REMOVES RIGHTS W/O CONSENT &
LEAVES US POORER
#Lexit doesn't exist..
The ECJ protects US from THEM

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

My client walked out of Rikers Island today after a jury acquitted him of all charges. He waited in jail for his trial for 3 years. He lost his job and missed his son’s first 3 birthdays simply because he couldn’t afford bail. He’s not unique - THIS IS OUR SYSTEM. #reform
I’d be remiss not to take this opportunity to direct people to the critically important bail funds out there: @bailproject @BKBailFund @BronxFreedom. Until we succeed in eliminating the abomination that is cash bail, it’s one great way to help. #endcashbail
Public defenders across the country are pouring their hearts out to help people caught in this mess we call the criminal justice system. To check out and support our work in the Bronx, stop by @BronxDefenders.

1. Every day I awaken hoping MPs would just once challenge the validity of a #Brexit that Robs us of Rights & makes us Poorer based on a non-Binding result the votes of only 25.6% of the Ppl, 37% voters & 51.8% of those voting..many of whom now regret it.
But no it's the same old
2. Autocrats of Right & Left more interested in imposing their wills on the Ppl than the current Will of the Ppl, deny us a #PeoplesVote & a #FinalSay with a #Remain option, on the basis it would undermine democracy, disillusion voters & fuel the Far Right. So #Brexit must happen
3. I repeat...the result was non-Binding & backed by only 26.5% of the Ppl 37% voters. But also these 'Democrats' don't just deny a #PeoplesVote ..they choose to ignore the flawed & probably illegal basis upon which the Ref was based. Cambridge Analytica, Foreign interference etc

1. Labour Schism: the threat's real if there's not a major shift in #Brexit policy at Conference.
A #BrexitShambles harms UK
A #PeoplesVote is Democratic
A #FinalSay Confirms the Will
#Remain + Current Deal is Best Deal
Prob is the Leadership Stance

1a Big diffs between 1980s & today's #Brexit emergency which play to a new Centrist Grouping not being SDP2..
1. Politicised Remainers
2. Party loyalty less strong
2. Far Right infiltration of Tories
3. Macron
4. LibDems a Catalist with a base
5. Big Funders
A new party is Viable
1b IMHO #Brexit must be stopped before a Gen Elect...time's too short for that & a Ref & this #BrexitShambles can't be sorted in a multi issue GE unless Labour stands full square behind

1. Yes @UKLabour it is nearly beyond time..back your members...back your voters...back the Maj of the Ppl & actively Oppose not Appease.
Your 1st priority is to the Country. #Brexit in any form harms it.
@Labour4EU know it...Unions know it..Momentum too. theguardian.com/business/2018/…
2. Don't let the Govt stall or the @EU_Commission give them more time. Any #Brexit will become a Tory one..it hands the UK to the Far Right & ERG.
The Ref validity is long gone...past its Use By date.
Lies, Illegalities & Rights to be Removed w/o CONSENT.

#PeoplesVote #FinalSay
3. PS Extensions, Renegotiations, Re-entry, Transitions & a Blind #Brexit are Tory #Brexiter & Labour #Lexiter #RedKipper CONS...
All lead to a Tory #BrexitShambles which Removes Rights & Impoverishes the UK...

#PeoplesVote for a #FinalSay with a #Remain #Reform option

#reform is all the rage these days. I have some thoughts on two popular subjects of reform: Prison and Healthcare.

Most of the discussions are way off the mark IMO. These are my thought on each topic.

1. All of this was predicted by some 2yrs ago & #Brexit lost when May backed by Corbyn invoked A50 w/o a clue what they were doing.
Gross negligence & a lack of due diligence. The deceitful party political game play since then is a travesty of Democracy. ft.com/content/0df20c…

1. Sick to the back teeth of hearing the PM stating vaccous nonsense in Parl incl that she is implementing what the BritishPeople voted for.

No politician can now say what the People want..she has no right to subvert a false Will of the Ppl to her own Party political interest
2. She states 80% of ppl voted for parties backing #Brexit. This is arrogant rubbish as proven by any research undertaken. Many votes were tactical & a multi issue GE can't be taken as backing a given version or indeed any version. She lost her mandate Labour didn't win one!
3. There's only 1 way to determine the present majority Will of the Ppl & that's to give us a #FinalSay via a #PeoplesVote.
It must be BINDING
It must be a SIMPLE MAJORITY
It must be BINARY
Accept #Brexit Deal/No Deal OR
#Reject #Revoke #Remain #Reform
Nothing else can be valid

In honor of Thomas Friedman’s latest love letter to Saudi here is 70 years of the NY Times describing #Saudi royals in the language of #reform.
This piece from 1953 describes King Saud as “more progressive and international-minded than his autocratic father”
This piece from 1957 doesn’t refer to Saudi Arabia specifically but it’s an epic headline nevertheless.
