#US #Iraq war veteran Vince Emanuele: "Moral injury is the real reason why #US veterans are committing suicide, as they realize all the horrors of war & innocent people killed were for nothing but #US corporate interests"

rt.com/usa/431777-us-…
#US veterans marched in #NewOrleans on July 1, to raise awareness for the high rates of veteran suicides across #America. They were wearing ‘dead masks’ to represent the high cost of war.
US Department of Veterans Affairs report: Average number of veterans suicide is 20 per day
US #Iraq war veteran Emanuele: In fact-the #US government, especially under @realDonaldTrump is exacerbating the problem by continuing militaristic operations all over the world-If US government was interested in preventing veteran suicides-it would stop creating so many veterans

A Surprising Thread of Tweets: To discover who are the attendees of the #US Embassy celebration in #Jerusalem

#US Embassy celebrations: A who's who of the Israeli arms trade

972mag.com/u-s-embassy-op… via @972mag
Only 30 countries took part in the #Israeli Foreign Ministry’s gala celebrating the new #US embassy in #Jerusalem last week. Not coincidentally, Israel’s ties with most of them are based on arms sales used to carry out gross human rights violations
Following 1967 War, #Israel began a diplomatic campaign to convince countries to oppose resolutions demanding it to unilaterally withdraw from the occupied territories. Israel attempted to buy votes of "murderous dictatorships" & military juntas in exchange for weapons & training

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...

My Mother’s Last #Feminist Battle facebook.com/GregPalastInve…
The #SanDiego papers reported that mom joined the Coast Guard "Reserve." In fact, she was full-time uniformed military. ALL women who enlisted at the start of WWII were classified as "auxiliary reservists"—even those sent overseas, a slight later corrected by an Act of Congress.
Because my mom was only "reserve," the military was going to deny her a color guard and bury her only as a 'military spouse." My mother would have been furious — so I raised hell. sandiegouniontribune.com/obituaries/sd-…

Real interference in election:
#Lebanon, 1950s: CIA provided funds to support the campaigns of Camille Chamoun & selected parliamentary candidates; other funds were targeted against candidates who had shown less than total enchantment with US interference. williamblum.org/aer/read/156
Real interference in election campaigns:
#Indonesia, 1955:
A million dollars were dispensed by the CIA to a centrist coalition’s electoral campaign in a bid to cut into the support for President #Sukarno’s party and the Indonesian #Communist_Party. williamblum.org/aer/read/156
#Vietnam, 1955:
The US was instrumental in South Vietnam canceling the elections scheduled to unify North and South because of the certainty that the North Vietnamese communist leader, Ho Chi Minh, would easily win. williamblum.org/aer/read/156

This is why I want to #MAGA. #Family.

1. My mom and dad, married 61 years. Both raised in the coalfields of #WV. My dad is LTC-USA (RET), served in #Vietnam, and is 100% VA disabled. My mom raised 3 daughters pretty much by herself!

Where is the #America they loved?
2. My son, pictured here with his father. He served in the #USArmy, and due to his service, is 100% VA disabled. (He suffers from #PTSD and thus, #depression, and, sadly, #addiction.)

Will the #VA be there for him when he's old?
3. My daughter, here with me at her bridal shower. She's an elementary school #teacher, and works 12-hour days, making sure her students get the very best education possible.

Will she be forced to tell her students they can't say Merry Christmas?

#AUS #QAnon

With over $75 million 'donated' by both sides of politics, AUS appears to be the biggest single foreign-government source of #ClintonFoundation funds

Add #ClintonClimateInitiative and we go up to 100s of millions a YEAR.

#Auspol
get on this NOW lazy #Ausmedia
It was money Well SPENT
In 2009, the so-called charity #ClintonGlobalInitiative bought actress Natalie Portman a first-class ticket for herself and her Yorkshire terrier to attend its conference at Texas University, Austin
#ClintonFoundation spent $US12 million on air travel in 2011 alone, with @BillClinton personally racking up a million dollars of that sum. If used for normal travel, the $US12 million could have financed 33 trips a day that year. Travel costs for the decade to 2013 came to $US50m
