#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.

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

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

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

On the topic of trade, I suspect #China is happier about Trump’s #TradeWar than many suppose. Sure, China will feel some short to mid term pain from these disruptions; however, the United States is leaving behind a very large vacuum in the international community. /1
While America is off attacking everyone coming and going, China is quietly offering to provide leadership on trade. There are many trade deals taking place where America is on the outside looking in; thus, China stands to win big in the long-term application of the trade war. /2
Trump and his supporters misunderstand something paramount about foreign policy. They see lone wolf schoolyard bullying as the ultimate exercise of foreign policy power. /3

Donald Trump has slapped tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods against China's espionage. But how much has the US lost from China's intellectual property theft actually? Conservative estimate put the costs between $225 billion and $600 billion annually. #TradeWar
One of the key reasons behind US China #TradeWar is a race to win $12 trillion technology seen as a backbone to everything from driverless cars to future cities that will set the standards that will define the next generation of mobile internet - #5G. But theres another player.
During #FifaWorldCup18 in Moscow, Russians have set up #5G test zones with speeds of 100 megabits per second. Although City of London has announced plans to switch to 5G as soon as it becomes available, it is Moscow that hopes to become first 5G city by 2020. #TradeWar

ABD'nin ozellikle son donemde S.Arabistan, #Iran uzerinden sert bir dille verdigi tum mesajlarin altinda ki asil hedefi #Çin'dir..

Daha dogrusu petro-dolar ile petro-Yuan arasinda yasanan amansiz savaş..

Bu konuyu tum ayrintilariyla irdeleyerek
🔻#FLOOD'umuza🔻 baslayalim.
1-Çin ile ABD arasında yaşanan ekonomik hegemonya savaşı, 2018 yılının başlarından itibaren yeni ve daha etkili bir evreye girdi. 2000’lerden bu yana dünya hegemonyasında ekonomik üstünlüğü ele geçirmiş olan Çin, bu hegemonyasını pekiştirecek yeni adımlar attı.

#KiminBaşarısı
2-Trump,  Mart ayının ilk günlerinde, “çok aptalca olan ticaret anlaşmaları ve politikaları nedeniyle”, ABD’nin yıllık 800 milyar$ bütçe açığı verdiğini ve buna bir son vereceğini söyledi. Ardından, çelik ithalatına %25, alüminyum ithalatına ise %10 ek gümrük vergisi getirdi..

#THREAD: We’ve said this before but for the life of us we can’t figure out why #Trump won’t give up this #TradeWar. The May jobs report was incredible and the #economy is booming. Now he’s threatening to torpedo all this work to get the economy humming because he’s pissed off
The smart political thing for #Trump and his #GOP allies facing re-election to do would be to run out the clock on this booming #economy all throughout the #Midterms2018 season and campaign hard on his anti-regulation, tax cutting economic policy and spike the football
In a survey conducted last fall, the Chicago Council on Public Affairs found that 72% of Americans thought trade is good for the U.S. economy, 78% thought it benefits consumers like themselves, and 57% thought it helps create jobs in the United States

THREAD: It occurs to me that while Trump retains high approval ratings among R's, his policies are much LESS popular. I think in terms of messaging, it makes sense to focus on policies, not Trump. Let's talk:
#FamilySeparation
#TradeWar
#Medicare
#SocialSecurity
#GOPTaxScam
As long as issues get easily interpreted through party heuristic, trump keeps winning. Take it out of the partisan lens- let's talk about how
#TradeWar will hurt your business/job/home expenses.
#separatingfamilies offends your values
#Medicare helps you/your parents /2
Let's talk about how:
#SocialSecurity is your retirement plan that YOU PAID for
#GOPTaxScam gave money to the rich & at best put less than $20 in your paycheck
Yes- the election is a referendum on trump- but it should be about his POLICIES b/c those are the true horror. /3

The rise of populism is in part a response to stagnating incomes & job loss, owing mostly to New #Technologies & widely attributed to #imports & #immigrants

Basically Big Businesses Greed
Their Idealolgy was Killing our Countries.

#Nationalism is a tool increasingly used by leaders to Show their authority, especially in difficult #Economic & #Political conditions. #GlobalIndustrie have failed to adapt to new #Power balances & technologies.

But the weakening of #Liberal #NewWorldOrder is due, more than anything else, to the changed attitude of #USA Under @POTUS @realDonaldTrump
#US decided against joining #TransPacificPartnership & to withdraw from #ParisClimateAgreement
