Did you really think that our Gov’t Overlords were gonna just pass up on more power grabs via CBDCs? Are you that naïve anon?

#bitcoin is so important, for far more reasons than many of you little dopamine-addicted brainlets can conceptualize.
Bring the FAKE Mt Olympus down upon the false gods of #eth #sol and the rest of this parasitic space. #bitcoin or bust.
Not a fan of gov't intervention. This space needs a cleaning...and it's quite clear that the morons and the sheep (often one in the same). If we leave it to #eth and the #altcoin space... the few will siphon the many like the vampires that they are.

China-

"We should be harvesting fruits right now, but it's all gone, dead from the scorching sun."

"It's impossible to work out in the orchard, because the ground temperature is around 60° celsius" [140°F]

"It's too miserable to bear witness to."

Pollution is bad, fining polluters is good. I’m ok w/ a carbon tax. Federal government must commit to helping finance upgraded energy grid focussing on hydroelectric & nuclear power. If auto industry can phase out new internal combustion engines by 2035, great! #cdnpoli #uspoli Image

"Institutional investors...have squeezed residential markets in many parts of the world, can be expected to pick up a purchasing pace that has turned them into the world’s biggest private landlords and transformed rental housing into a go-to global asset class."

"...automated digital platforms have made it easier and cheaper to track, price, acquire and manage large swaths of homes in multiple communities."

You may have seen some recent press on droughts and climate change. Here is a quick summary and context (thread).

First, two recent studies:

1. Europe is in trouble

1/x
#ClimateCrisis #food #water #farming
agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/20…
Key findings:

the 2018-2020 drought was ‘a new benchmark having an unprecedented intensity’ &

“Europe should be prepared for events of comparable intensity ... but with durations longer than any of those experienced in the last 250 years”

2/x
agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/20…
What does this mean for food production?
“Our analysis also shows that these exceptional temperature-enhanced droughts significantly negatively impact commodity crops across Europe.”

Well, it seems that the fascists have found their new marginalized group to blame the world’s ills on - and it’s trans people.

#fascism #trans #cdnpoli #uspoli

Make no mistake, I fully expect this same kind of legislative bullshit to make its way into Canada - the connections between the conservative parties here and the GQP fomenting this crap in the US are far too tight for it not to. /2
Not only is this legislation draconian, it’s extremely dangerous for anyone who is either transgender themselves, or works with transgender people professionally. /3

OK #Covid_19 #COVID19 #Covid #uspoli #canpoli #ukpolitics #EU #worldpoli are you or one of your family members one of the 1/100 predicted to get severely ill from #Omicron the #COVID19 #Covid_19 #Variant despite being 3-4X vaccinated and following public health advice?
A THREAD:
And so it seems world leaders around the globe have finally come together - to declare that 1/100 people with #Omicron experiencing severe disease and/or death is an acceptable number for "a productive economy" - what does that mean if YOU or an at-risk family member is 1/100?
First you must accept the cold hard fact that nobody any longer gives a single solitary flying shit that you or your family member(s) are now after 2 years of "we're all in this together" staring down the very short barrel of a rapidly increased mortality risk from #Omicron.

1/26 🧵#CDNpoli #2Michaels #Elxn44

It's been hard for me to watch #CDNmedia coverage of the 2 Michaels, knowing there's a pointless media blackout that's resulted in widespread #disinformation & exploitation by partisan actors

This #thread is RE Spavor

2/26 🧵#CDNpoli #2Michaels #Elxn44

Canada has become a laughing stock to our global partners due to #CDNmedia suppression of facts about Spavor & Kovrig, that are available to everyone else in the world, including 🇨🇦, if we only bothered to google

archive.is/9IxGI
3/26 🧵#CDNpoli #Elxn44

I've known facts about the #2Michaels for some time & I declined to share earlier so it wouldn't impact Spavor & Kovrig's trials in #China. But that collective ignorance is being weaponized against voters & both sides have been disingenuous in recent news

Given everything that’s been happening in the world, I think it’s time to revisit the subject of #ActiveMeasures.

Not just for Soviets anymore.

A 🧵.

#USpoli #cdnpoli #UKPolitics #EUpolitics #nzpol #auspoI #Brexit
When the Kremlin launched its weaponization of social media prior to 🇺🇸 2016 election, there was great concern that other malignant actors would quickly adopt these techniques.

They did.
Now, not only state-actor operations, but for-hire malign influence operations are reaching epidemic proportions as well, in countries around the world. (nytimes.com/2021/07/25/wor…) #disinformation #propaganda #ActiveMeasures

1/24 This is the second #thread in a controlled #leak of my #CAF/#DND investigation. The reason I've chosen to release these details early is to neutralize #disinformation in #CDNmedia during the pre-writ phase

This one is RE Conservative Party Leader Erin O'Toole #CDNpoli
2/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

As my first #thread about Deputy Minister Jody Thomas identified, there's an issue with "torqued" #CDNmedia at Global News (Mercedes Stephenson) + Globe & Mail (Robert Fife) surrounding the Canadian Armed Forces

For reference:
3/24 #CAF #DND #CDNpoli

Most readers are unaware of Mercedes Stephenson's (Global News) undisclosed conflict of interest pertaining to her husband, Dan Mader. Widely described as an on-again/off-again union, Canadian Forces & #CDNmedia were invited to the wedding in 2015

2/9 For the record, to accept @JoeBiden's recent 'revelation', you'd have to believe the US State Dept is staffed by entirely new people since Trump & that they obtained new info Trump never had by magically going back in time to locate a smoking gun @WHO & #USpoli never found
3/9 Moreover, #CDNmedia is forgetting (or neglecting to verify anything whatsoever) that both #CDNpoli & #USpoli govt scientists were working in China as official partners to set up the Wuhan lab, that everything done there was under our watchful eye, management & safety controls

#Breaking: Biden, Trudeau discussed incarceration of Michael Korvig and Michael Spavor in China during virtual meeting torstar.co/Dg4U50DIcO0
FULL STORY from @thekeenanwire: What Joe Biden’s first meeting with Justin Trudeau lacked in specifics, it made up for with good vibes /2 thestar.com/news/world/202…
Good vibes: “The United States has no closer and no more important friend than Canada,” U.S. President @JoeBiden said to Trudeau. He also emphasized his commitment to global engagement. /3 thestar.com/news/world/202…

1/19 I regret that my Epoch Times investigation isn't finished yet & I'm going fast as I can

With that said, this #thread is another teaser & I'm giving it early release because of its implication to the #UighurGenocide vote in #CDNpoli today & how MPs have been sorely misled
2/19 #CDNpoli #Uyghur #UighurGenocide

First off, the Conservative party pressure to force a vote in Canada is due to a campaign concocted by Steve Bannon, to squeak through his agenda (continuing Trump's agenda) to force a war with #China before Prez Biden can get up to speed
3/19 #UighurGenocide

They're capitalizing on right-wing ownership of most #CDNmedia to disinform #CDNpoli about the #Uyghur issue, without the threat of being fact checked

Our dystopian news climate is being used to manipulate @JustinTrudeau into painting @POTUS into a corner

Dear, @HouseGOP: You're worried about impeaching Trump being "divisive"? About how the "Dems are unified in hatred", etc? #USPoli #AttemptedCoup /1

What could be more divisive than a sitting President exhorting his followers to "march on the Capitol" on the day that the legislators are reviewing the results of the Electoral College vote? /2

Even if Trump was otherwise uninvolved in planning this debacle (which seems unlikely), his speech and his actions following it, are anything but benign. /3

Rogues Gallery of Folk Who are Culpable in Destroying Our World With No Substantive Action on Abrupt Climate Change:

Makes you feel like you are on the Titanic!!



#ClimateAction #ClimateEmergency #ClimateChange #climate #cdnpoli #USA #uspoli #Weather
The title says it all, really. World leaders have impotently addressed our climate crisis with never ending verbal diarrhea and useless treaties with next to no action on addressing our climate crisis. Now we are in a full blown climate emergency.
Now we are in a full blown climate emergency with very little chance for doing anything about. Arctic sea ice almost hit a new record low (2012 still lowest) but as we near Nov. there is exceptionally low ice regrowth...

Dear 650000+ #USA citizens currently living in #Canada,
I don't know what brought you here (welcome to #WeTheNorth land)
But I can't understand why only 30500 of you voted in #2016USElxn. That's downright pitiful by any #voter turnout standard...
#USPoli #Toronto #Vancouver
..The results of the upcoming (66 days) #2020Election will have profound repercussions to not only #USA, but to #Canada . As a Canadian, I'm not eligible to vote. What's your excuse if you're a #USAexpat?

Has it occurred to anyone that the 1% consider democracy as a means to keep regular people thinking they have some sort of power over their lives while, in fact, often power lies somewhere else entirely? #cdnpoli #uspoli #AbLeg 1/5
Has anyone considered that, perhaps, the conservatives always go after education because they know that educated people are less likely to vote conservative? 2/5
Has anyone wondered if, maybe, conservatives defund health care because privitised health care is a money-maker for their corporate donors AND people who are sick, and broke, and desperate seldom have the energy to protest draconian legislation? 3/5
