1/87-In 2016 @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism "woke" me to the massive corruption in our government:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS (#Globalists)

VS

WE THE PEOPLE (Patriots & @POTUS)

#MAGA #QAnon #GreatAwakening #WalkAway
2/87-This is going to be a LONG thread, for those in a hurry... I recommend the "Agenda Explained" series by @RockingMrE:

3/87-I'd like to start by saying I'm NOT an expert on the #NWO. I'm simply a Patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why... as I listened to @realDonaldTrump speak about Globalism, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.

Let's discuss yesterday's polls and begin our discussion on youth entrepreneurship with #GEMChats

This is a thread.
In a summary report of an OECD and the European
Commission seminar in 2014 , two things were key points:

1. #unemployment was at 10.9% in 2013 and double for #youth : 23.4%

2. 45% of youth prefer self-employment to
#employment, whereas 37% of adults prefer self-employment.
In Malaysia, MIDF reports find youth unemployment to be high - hitting a record 10.8% last year, attributed to a skills mismatch.

This is a significant 40.5% of total unemployment in #Malaysia.

So what can be done?

Asylum-seekers in Texas are currently being stopped by border patrol before they can ask for asylum. This policy, as well as the separation of asylum-seeking kids from parents, is a VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW. From @TexasMonthly: texasmonthly.com/politics/immig… (h/t @_karenjgonzalez)
I've had several people ask, so here's an in-depth thread about how this new policy violates international law: In 1948, after World War II, the US and several other countries signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. un.org/en/universal-d…
After WWII, we as a country (including my grandfather, a WWII vet) felt we could never allow human rights to be violated as they had been under Hitler; they were concerned about the thousands of refugees in Europe as well as the millions of people slaughtered in the Holocaust.

I’m seeing a lot of mixed thoughts about the #SyriaStrikes. Most of them are incoherent and not very level-headed. Here is my humble attempt at the opposite.

War and bombs are not part of God’s vision for the Kingdom, but we live in the “already, not yet” /1
so there has to be a place for military might to be used appropriately. I believe that a military intervention in #Syria could bring stability back to the country, ending the killing of innocents and allowing refugees to return home to rebuild. /2
But, of course, real life is always more complicated than that. The struggling factions in Syria (ISIS, Assad, & rebels) have all used civilians as pawns or shields at one time or another. A successful western military intervention that ends the civil war and /3

THREAD: Fact vs. Fiction: 10 things you need to know about the Presidential Determination on Refugee Admissions from @worldrelief Here are the facts. (See this thread for Fiction vs Fact 5 and 6) #RefugeesWelcome #Refugees
FICTION 5: The aim of U.S. refugee policy is for refugees to return home.

FACT 5: Of 22.5 million refugees, less than 1% have access to resettlement. In 2018, 1.2 million face extreme vulnerabilities or family reunification needs for which they are in need of resettlement.
FACT 5 (cont): Fewer than 200,000 resettlement slots are available annually. Refugee resettlement of a few is necessary for the successful local integration or return of the majority of refugees. Refugee resettlement relieves pressure on host communities and brings stability.

Hello @ICEgov @CBPSanDiego @CBP there are 1500+ families, marching towards the border hopefully you are aware they plan on taking over, they think in large numbers they can’t be refused #BuildTheWall
The event is very well planned and funded sounds a bit like #sorosarmy though they have harmlessly named it a caravan #SanctuaryState #Takebackcalifornia
Call it whatever you want this is an invasion and they are headed right towards good old #SanctuaryState of California who is funding them? Do @AGBecerra @MayorOfLA @JerryBrownGov intend on letting all of them enter while our homeless crisis grows? @latimes

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.

: "while the Nkurunziza government has accused regional actors (aka #Rwanda) of meddling to fuel conflict in the country, these allegations have remained largely false."

It is now (very) safe to ignore @issafrica from credible knowledge sources on #Burundi
Let's recall this:
#Burundi has showed 35 pieces of evidence to the @_icglr accusing #Rwanda of fueling #BurundiCrisis,
The @_icglr is the same organ which investigated on #Rwanda's accusations against #Burundi, of hosting Interhamwe (No proof found)
However, #Rwanda conveniently refused to allow @_icglr to investigate #Burundi's claims (which, again, are already backed by 35 pieces of evidences.)
Apparently, this is enough for @priyal_singh & @issafrica to conclude that the claims are false.

The UNHCR are offering shelter to refugees across the world. Most of those crisis are forgotten emergencies. 236,000 Congolese refugees have fled in Uganda so far. With @Refugees I visited a settlement there, got to meet some of them, and they all had stories to tell. #refugee
Sammy : now blind after he has been persecuted and tortured in Congo. Now lives in a small house in Rwamwanja (the refugee settlement) with his wife. Speaks with a soft voice. Told me he likes to take walks at dusk, because there's less stridence.
Ashaka : young, promising dancer. He told me that there's a sense of violent interruption when you have to flee - your life's suddenly shattered, and then all you can do is wait. He often meets with other teenagers at Rwamwanja's Youth Center for music workshops.
