The Holocaust would be considered as a Sunday's walking in the Park.

At this stage in our written history given the divisiveness and bitterness of the so-called Political Landscape currently led by #Criminals and #Prostititutes in Washington DC.
If the Democrat-Socialists somehow take back the three U.S Government branches, there would be the nasty and bloody Civil War ever seen before by mankind on the face of planet Earth, because the American People are #WARRIORS who refuses themselves to sell out their
Country to fundamentally transform the United States into an #Islamic Sanctimonious #Prostitute, while governed by the #United Communist #Nations, and as well as the #European Islamic #Union.

Frank Hammer: There was nothing ever "given" to us--our #union fought for everything we got on the job. #1u

Frank Hammer: When GM went global, it was time for the union movement to become international and grow. #1u

Frank Hammer: We now have a multiple tier wage and benefit structure--four echelons of workers but they're all getting different things for doing the same job. The workers are fractured, divided from each other.

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

Outtakes from the #DNC Executive Meeting in #PuertoRico (thread)

Chair promises a 2020 process that is fair. Will release a protocol on debates soon; expect debates in summer 2019 . Will decide by March 2019 the Host City for 2020 Convention: Houston, Miami Beach, or Milwaukee.
We have worked hard to rebuild trust on our presidential process. Rules and Bylaws Cttee working with early states on rules. A key rule change ends superdelegates voting 1st round absent consensus candidate BUT elected officials can still be PLEOs & not run against constituents.
The PLEO Party Leader Elected Official designation is for pledged delegates who are Members of Congress Governors etc who want a first round #DNC convention vote but don’t want to run against activist to get there.

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

The Suffocation of Democracy

By: Christopher R. Browning

THREAD✔
1/
As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

THREAD: My somewhat nuanced take on #SCOTUS #Union decision. Obviously- it's bad for unions & thus working ppl. If you like your 5 day works week, 8hr day, min wage,& worker safety- thank a union. Unions are good for the country. That having been said..../1
I get why some ppl had a problem w/paying union dues. Writ large, unions do great things. But there ARE problems at many unions. I worked at a public college as an adjunct for several yrs. Unions dues were deducted from my meager paycheck. At first, I didn't mind. /2
But I eventually grew to resent the hell out of it. You see, the union didn't actually represent MY interests. It represented full time/tenure track faculty. The faculty actively undermined the working conditions of adjuncts. They voted against offering benefits & raises. /3
