The conditions have been right. As many ppl have recognized, there is absolutely NOTHING Trump has done that is inconsistent with the USSR’s longtime goals. From the very first day when he called the CIA nazis. He has cast doubt on every one of our 3/

Romania takes over the EU Presidency at a critical time, when several legislative negotiations need to be concluded ahead of European elections. Read my thoughts in this thread 👇
First, I wish them the best of luck. At the same time, the Romanian government must deliver on their commitments with regard to the #ruleoflaw.
The reforms of the judiciary, of the criminal code and also the NGO law must fully reflect the recommendations of the Venice Commission, and be re-assessed by this expert body before enactment.

Vehicle registration fee increase: Under SB 1, California’s controversial gas tax and car registration increase, drivers will pay escalated fees of up to $175 more for vehicle registration at the Department of Motor Vehicles, based on the vehicle’s value.
SB 54, called the “California Values Act,” already restricts the ability of state and local police in California to cooperate with U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents.

Addressing the annual conference of @NigBarAssoc in Aug, @MBuhari claimed #HumanRights were subject to his own notion of national security. As #Nigerians in different walks pay wth their lives for growing insecurity, it's impt to address #TheBuhariDoctrine

Supporters of #TheBuhariDoctrine of national security easily cite the side comment (dictum) of a Justice of #Nigeria's Supreme Court in the case of Mujahid Asari Dokubo v. Federal Republic of #Nigeria decided when OBJ was President on 8 June 2006.

In July 2009, during, under OBJ's successor, #UMYA, Yusuf Mohammed, the founder of #BokoHaram was executed extra-judicially by @PoliceNG. His killing became the proximate cause of an insurgency that has triggered multiple forms of lethal violence in #Nigeria

1/ @MaltaGov doesn’t really have a choice

2/ @VeniceComm was asked by @coe for opinion to assess whether #Malta should be added to the “bad boy” list (hence #1)

3/ perspective- left to its own devices @MaltaGov thinks a shrine to a murdered journalist is a threat to #ruleoflaw

(1) The Prime Ministership of the UK.

Tonight in London, the ruling Conservative party voted on whether to keep Theresa May as PM. The outcome will be publicly known within minutes.

Below is info about how the British system works & what might happen next.
(2) Live updates on the Theresa May vote here:

news.sky.com/story/live-may…
(3) The UK uses the Westminster system of government, which is more or less the same system used in Canada, Australia, NZ and many other countries.

Unlike the US, the head of govt can be selected by the legislature at any time, and does not necessarily trigger an election.

The #RuleofLaw is at stake; we cannot allow this to be a partisan issue. Good to see some notable conservatives speaking up. “Conservative lawyers are not doing enough to protect constitutional principles that are being undermined by . . this president.” nytimes.com/2018/11/14/us/…
“We believe in the rule of law, the power of truth, the independence of the criminal justice system, the imperative of individual rights and the necessity of civil discourse.” Amen. We need people speaking up on all points, including #ProtectMuellerNOW.
“The president has attacked the Justice Department for indictments of Republican congressmen . . and he’s urged that the Justice Department investigate his political opponents,” Peter Keisler said. “That’s a fundamentally wrong and very dangerous [and should be condemned]."

We’re witnessing a slow-motion #Holocaust in Occupied #EastTurkistan. MILLIONS of Muslims, including the elderly, have been disappeared into Communist #China’s system of #ConcentrationCamps. Meanwhile, #Beijing is murdering CEO’s & even abducted the head of @INTERPOL. Crisis.
… it’s vital that #PacificRim nations coalesce around our shared values: #HumanRights, #PressFreedoms, & #RuleOfLaw. The time to push back on Communist #China is NOW. #America 🇺🇸, #Japan 🇯🇵, #Australia 🇦🇺, #India 🇮🇳, #Taiwan 🇹🇼, & others… join together to stop these atrocities!
… the free world — I hope you still cherish it — has never faced a more daunting & urgent threat that the one posed by Communist #China’s totalitarian regime. Nazi Germany’s population was 90 million. Soviet Russia’s was 293 million. Communist China? 1.386 BILLION. Must act NOW.

In the absence of full text of ruling for time being (as far as I can see) a quick thread based on the (comprehensive) ECJ press release

#RuleofLaw #Poland
1/ Two most important features of ECJ VP order: its *immediate* suspensive effect re rules on forced retirement of SCt judges & its *retroactive* effect re SCt judges already dismissed on basis of these rules
2/ On the + side (that is if you believe in the #ruleoflaw): all previously “purged” SCt judges must be reinstated + current First President of SCt must remain in place (as per the Polish Constitution one may add)

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread ✔
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

2/
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

The discussion in the EU about how to address the problem of the rule of law in PL has mainly focused on deploying punitive measures. This inspired me to write a paper for @Carnegie_Europe within its #Europeandemocracy project which calls on a more comprehensive strategy. #Thread
1.Don't get me wrong. The EU cannot turn a blind eye on democratic backsliding in its own members. EU treaties provide EC with legal instruments 2 address the problem&EC has been doing its job vis-à-vis. But it will fail to restore #ruleoflaw if it only sticks 2 punitive measures
2.The EC needs to ensure that the Polish public understands the EU’s motives for intervening. Poles are pro-European but they are vulnerable to the PiS narrative that Brussels has no right to tell Warsaw what to do ( I refer to some polling in the piece)

Kavanaugh Foes Fill Senate Gallery With Sounds of the Insane pjmedia.com/jchristianadam… #RuleofLaw via @pjmedia_com
I was in the Senate gallery this afternoon when Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed. You would have thought I was at an exorcism in an insane asylum.
If there was any doubt that the opposition to Kavanaugh was unhinged, uncivil, disruptive, rude, and borderline nuts, my experience in the gallery made it clear.

On February 27, 1933 the German Parliament building burned, Adolf #Hitler rejoiced, and the #Nazi era began.
1/
#Hitler, who had just been named head of a #government that was legally formed after the democratic #elections of the previous November, seized the opportunity to change the system. “There will be no mercy now,” he exulted. “Anyone standing in our way will be cut down.”
2/
The next day, at Hitler’s advice and urging, the #German #president issued a decree “for the protection of the people and the state.”

(1) Live tweeting the Senate tonight. @SenateMajLdr has to file cloture by a deadline tonight in order to hold the #ConfirmKavanaugh vote Saturday.

Watch the livestream and videos here:

c-span.org/congress/?cham…
(2) Cloture in the Senate is a procedural step that you can learn more about at the link below. The senate.gov website is the best resource for learning about Senate procedure and a lot more. Same for house.gov.

senate.gov/reference/glos…
(3) Watching live Senate floor proceedings is boring as hell, as they pass bills for naming Post Offices, & so on. But every now & then, they confirm a SCOTUS judge. And this time, they will affirm our great #BillOfRights #DueProcess & the hard-won #RuleOfLaw. Seriously. 🇺🇸🦅

Anyone who supports #JudgeKavanaugh should not be concerned w/a one week investigation as long as:
- #POTUS has control over the rogue #FBI.
- #RuleofLaw is restored.

(1) Here's a multimedia thread about the Kavanaugh hearing on 9/27/18. The body language of our opponents is so obvious it takes no professional skill to read it.

Photos and videos that support my opinion follow.

#ConfirmKavanaugh #ProsecuteFeinstein #RuleOfLaw #BillOfRights
(2) After preparing the photos I will add to this thread, I noticed this video that was published today. "Bombard" is an outstanding body language analyst & has done several videos re the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

A must watch:

bombardsbodylanguage.com/2018/09/30/bod…
(3) This is also a must watch. I had already formed the same view of Ford's testimony before I saw this video. Ford is a faker and tried to use a "little girl" voice & body language to MANIPULATE us all.

I DO NOT tolerate manipulators. Female, or male.
