Is Ivanka Trump The New Face Of Privilege And Global Suffering, In Places Like The U.S. And India?

"This is not the first time Ivanka Trump has used “cheap stunts” to improve her image and brand. ..

Remove the names of slave owners, traitors, separatists, & domestic terrorists from the military bases. #america #blm
#veteran

The Senate overwhelmingly passed a massive defense bill Thursday afternoon that includes the removal of Confederate names amp.usatoday.com/amp/5495545002
from army bases and creates a possible showdown between Congress and President Donald Trump, who opposes renaming the bases.

The bill passed by a lopsided count of 86 to 14, well over the number required to override a presidential veto.
The bill, which authorizes $736.9 billion in military spending, includes a provision to form a commission on the names of military bases and rename bases over the next three years.

The @CityofCleveland Mental Health Response Advisory Committee met hours before @cory_shaffer's story was published about how @CLEpolice officers were disciplined in the Tanisha Anderson case. Nobody from the @cle_monitorteam or @USAttyHerdman's office told us about this.
The City of Cleveland Mental Health Response Advisory Committee (MHRAC) was created in 2015 as a mandate of the consent decree between @TheJusticeDept & @CityofCleveland. Nothing #MHRAC does remotely resembles oversight. We have not had a single discussion about Tanisha Anderson.
I have brought up Tanisha Anderson's death numerous times in an effort to prevent future tragedies. But the subject is off-limits. You have to ask why the #Cleveland #police department doesn't want to prevent a potential future in-custody death. #SayHerName #TanishaAnderson

The untold story of why I left active duty Army service:
In 2013 I came back from Afghanistan. I spent time in in-patient care to recover from trauma shortly after. My leadership read me my Article 15 demoting me, stripping me of my sergeant stripes, while I was in the psych ward
I was in no position to stand up for myself. I didn't. One person stood up for me. He's the only reason my punishment wasn't worse. I promised myself I would never work for toxic leadership again. It almost killed me for a power trip & someone's promotion. That's not why I served
I had planned on serving for 20 years. I was good at being a soldier. I loved leading and helping others grow. But I spoke out against the wrong person in a position of power, and an already stressful deployment, became torturous. I couldn't breathe. I became hopeless. Helpless.

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

1/ THREAD: Memorial Day in a Pandemic

I often struggle with #MemorialDay. With the calls for celebration and happiness on this day. For BBQs and summer fun.

Because nothing about this day is happy.

This day is about #grief. About tragedy. About #death and loss.

🇺🇸 😔 😢
2/ Above all, it is a day of RESPECT. Because Americans gave their lives in service to protect the citizens and country of the United States.

The lives they previously dreamt of were cut short. And that selfless gift of life is one of the highest honors to serve your country. Image
3/ But their husbands and wives will never kiss their spouses again. Their children will never hug their mothers or fathers again. It doesn’t change the visceral grief of parents losing their children to #prematuredeath. #memorialdayweekend2020 Image

1/4. Thread. I am a #Veteran and a retired USAF officer. My CODEL in #Nebraska claims to be "pro-military." Yet when @realDonaldTrump pardoned Eddie Gallagher and Clint Lorance, they said nothing.
2/4. Thread. When @SECNAV relieved CAPT Crozier of command, they said nothing. Crozier, by the way, sent a message to Navy leadership, telling them COVID-19 was a danger to his crew. That is something a commander should do.
3/4. Thread. Are these things connected? Only to the extent that @realDonaldTrump is too thin skinned to accept the mild criticism of a Navy officer reporting truth. And the supporters of Lorance and Gallager knew praising Trump would get action.

1/4. Thread. As a #Veteran, I care about this. Here's a link to important numbers on #Veterans in the 116th Congress. 30 Dems, 66 Reps; 19 Senate, 77 House; 18% of Congress are veterans, compared with 8% of U.S. adult population. militarytimes.com/news/pentagon-…
2/4. Thread. Given that, one would think that more Senators and Congress-members would comment on @realDonaldTrump openly stating he would violate U.S. Law and the Geneva Conventions by bombing cultural sites and by using "disproportionate" force (his words).
3/4. Thread. Yet, we have heard little. In my state of #Nebraska, we have one veteran in our CODEL, @RepDonBacon. Mr Bacon regularly reminds us that he is the "highest ranking military retiree" in Congress. Yet on this subject, he is silent as a church mouse.

Let's get 2020 started. I'll be posting Campaign Resolutions like #NewYearsResolution but how I'll Represent #NC13 in D.C.
1 - I am not accepting Corporate PAC donations like my Republican opponent. My vote is not for sale.
secure.actblue.com/donate/scott20…
2 - I will work to engage citizens to hold our Government accountable to the people. I'm not running to be a politician. I am elected to be a Public Servant. I work for the district not for the #donorclass. Our #workingclass families need representation in D.C.
3 - We live in #TwoAmericas. The #ExtremeRich & everybody else. Everybody else is having to work 2 or 3 jobs. We need to focus on improving #workingclass wages. I will support a $15 min raise. My Republican opponent voted NO on HR 582 - Raise the Wage Act

To all the #Military & #Vets, #ThanQ for your sacrifice. We the people owe you! 🎖

I have had Military & Vets thank me for my service. It is the most humbling feeling.

Even though I know how big this fight is, I don't feel like I deserve that much credit

I'm proud of what I ☟
Am doing. Not for credit, but because I know it has to be done.

I'm not just fighting for the children, I'm fighting for all the soldiers that died for us. For the Patriots like JFK & Seth Rich that lost their lives trying to fight for us, the people.

It's not just on our ☟
Military to protect our country, it's on us also, we the people (2A).

It is all of our duty to protect freedom. Even God told us this day would come.

I'm not trying to steal valor, or act like my sacrifice is as much as a soldiers. It's not. I know that. 💯

I'm just an Anon ☟
