Can we have a bit of honesty about the UK joining the #CPTPP please.

1) Government's own forecasts say it will contribute to 0.8% GDP growth, compared to the 4% loss from leaving the EU single market. 1/
2) In joining we become committed to a common set of trade laws and regulations, much as we were under the single market. So the much hailed #sovereignty we won from #Brexit is being given up with not so much as a whisper. 2/ @RishiSunak
3) Some of the laws we will be bound under will require us to lower our standards in areas of food and the environment.

4) We are likely to agree to remove tariffs on palm oil as a condition of joining, which will have a direct consequence of increased Amazon deforestation 3/

1/20 Sovereign Africa Ratings @saratings is a most important development to pay attention to in Africa NOW. Africa is fast becoming the most important continent. And South African President Ramaphosa is mum on this vital African investment development.
Crude oil and copper prices have gone separate ways in recent months. Copper has risen 36% since last July while oil has fallen 22%. The divergence between the two markets is very rare in history. Image

“ archetypal forces within the unus mundus expressed as fields of inherent patterns “

~ @AuroraLou3

our job is to unplug from all inorganic ., falsely constructed morphogenetic fields & regain our #sovereignty
“Its easy to be distracted from truth when specific lies are widespread and widely accepted. Yes, it's all connected. Yes, we're all one. No, blind acceptance based on popular opinion because we aren't willing to imagine so many would be fooled doesn't constitute discernment

As an Indigenous attorney from the global South, I choose to wake up in the “iron cold” of Federal Indian Law and fight for basic human rights to apply to Indigenous Peoples. Even so, it’s crushing to hear #Brackeen as #GibsonDunn attempts to erode #ICWA and #TribalSovereignty.🧵
I’ve litigated #ICWA cases with @BenRundallEsq in AZ, and even in a state with 22 federally recognized Tribes, it was abundantly clear that courts aren’t competent to respect protections meant to remedy the historical wrongs of taking Indigenous children away from their families.
Competency, while an ethical requirement in the law, clearly it isn’t the same for #SCOTUS. Constitutional law forms the body of Federal Indian Law, yet it’s astounding the Court cannot grasp that “Indian” is a political designation. They miss the point of #ICWA extraordinarily.

1/ As suggested by @PopovaProf, I'd like to comment on the recent remarks by the #Brazilian president-elect, @LulaOficial, on the #Russian war of aggression in #Ukraine. Needless to say, many were struck by the ignorance and brutishness of these utterances. A 🧵...
2/ But what lies behind this? Many European/US observers seem dumbfounded by the fact that a leader who is widely (and correctly) believed to have bravely stood against dictatorship in his own country would support a genocidal warmonger such as #Putin on the international stage.
3/ The sources of Lula's (and #LatinAmerica's more widely) attitudes towards the war are many, and differ widely between countries, contexts, and social strata. The probably most often mentioned one is anti-Americanism, stemming from a variety of sources, but often relevant...

New 🧵re: striking @BLHarbert construction workers building the new @usembassyhn. Remember knife threat gringo from my previous 🧵? The embassy whisked him out of the country hours later to avoid Honduran jail. Great job modeling #RuleOfLaw, @StateDept!
Since last week, @BLHarbert & @usembassyhn have doubled down on their illegal practices & harassment in an effort to wear down striking workers—who like most Hondurans are poor & have gone a month w/o pay—so they'll accept unsafe, immoral & unlawful working conditions. Image of future Honduran em...
For example, the attorneys workers had hired, Obed Alejandro Rivera Lopez & Emerson Eduardo Oreilly Lagos, suddenly turned on them & insisted they accept the original illegal contract they'd hired them to challenge, which workers cite as clear evidence @BLHarbert bought them off. Image

New thread re: Honduran workers building new @usembassyhn protesting atrocious labor conditions by @StateDept contractor @BLHarbert. This one is going to be a doozy, so stay tuned throughout the day. Here: workers starting this AM poignantly, w/national anthem. #Sovereignty
@usembassyhn @StateDept @BLHarbert What are these workers protesting? The list of abuses by contractor @BLHarbert is long. One of the complaints is dangerous working conditions. Apparently @StateDept thinks saving money on building its new fortress is worth quite a few unremunerated Honduran fingers.

Workers tell me ~6 workers have been summarily fired after their fingers were amputated. No severance pay, no healthcare. This is Adam Lance Weiss, onsite Health & Safety Manager w/@BLHarbert, in one shot w/the Washington monument, super appropriate imperialist symbolism. ImageImage

Honduran construction workers⁩ building the new ⁦@usembassyhn⁩ are outside the current embassy right now asking ⁦@USAmbHonduras⁩ Laura Dogu to come out and address their grievances re:labor abuses by ⁦@StateDept⁩ ⁦contractor ⁦@BLHarbert⁩.
There’s some Honduran media there- this is a reporter with @HCHTelevDigital. I’ll link to articles as they come out. ImageImage
@HCHTelevDigital Sign held by protesting @BLHarbert worker reminds @USAmbHonduras/@Trabajohn "Art.79 of the [Honduran] constitution stipulates: All persons have the right to public assembly & peaceful demonstration relating to their common interests of any kind w/o special permit or notification" Image

What makes #Bitcoin unique from all previous forms of money is that it alone enables financial #sovereignty
That means, among other things:

* Nobody can change my #Bitcoin without my express consent

* I require no authority or intermediary to move my funds. They move to whom I say, when I say, with no intermediary who can gatekeep.
#bitcoin is not majoritarian. We have majoritarian money already. It's called "fiat."

Appalling bit of subediting(?) but the article itself lays out both the history and US context of #RoeVsWade and the consequences of overturning it with rather more nuance:… The Times view on US abortion law and overturning Roe v Wade
The "right approach" the writer appears to support 👇 is the codification of the #RightToChoose into federal #law - which should have happened decades ago. The major issue being the parlous state of US politics... What it should also do is push the issue to the top of the p
For the avoidance of doubt, I absolutely support women's #RightToChoose - it is not for ANY authority to tell people what they can or can't do with their bodies. Anger is justified, but not enough; this is an issue around which people must #mobilise and begin taking back #agency.

When the government spends, it must either collect #taxes or take on #debt – so the widespread assumption. A growing economy does not pose a problem, as long as g > r the debt-to-GDP ratio declines over time, particularly if loans have low interest rates and long maturities 2/
However,if the economy stops growing or if it even declines, the debt ratio rises and tax revenue declines. If one assumes that the economy should not grow endlessly for socioecological reasons #degrowth @timparrique @MGSchmelzer, how can government spending then be financed? 3/

🧵Encouraged that the #SCOTUS orders today continue to affirm our treaty rights & honor judicial precedent. The Court today DENIED 31 👀 petitions from Oklahoma seeking to overturn #McGirt – the ruling that affirmed our reservation & #sovereignty #PrecedentNotPolitics 🧵
Oklahoma – not winning w/ petitions to overturn #McGirt at U.S. Supreme Court

It’s clear that now is the time for implementation not litigation.

#TribalSovereignty #ImplementationNOTLitigation #Collaboration
Tough to celebrate U.S. Supreme Court’s DENIAL today of 31 👀 petitions to overturn #McGirt when MILLIONS $$ state taxpayer wasted on losing litigation. How many millions spent from $10 million fund, @GovStitt?

Time for Okla to start spending on implementation not litigation.

#MMT #Thread on floating #FX
Flexible exchange rate policy is something a country grows into as it builds higher degrees of #resilience to external shocks via food/energy #sovereignty, high value-added industries & other institutional measures to fight #speculation #corruption..
and price gouging... So a higher degree of monetary sovereignty is something a country earns via strategic investments/regulations; it's not something you announce, float the currency, and hope for a miracle. All MMTers understand this.
I know this because I had this specific conversation with each one of the leading figures in the field. The fact that they don't emphasize this particular point in every argument they present is a matter of nuance/communication...
