...#POTUS and do all kinds of deals with #Putin? Do YOU remember @HillaryClinton’s response? OH MY, #DJT would rather do deals with Putin than our own fake president. Putin’s translator at the #SingaporeSummit said here the ball is now in your court. As in all the traitorous...
PRESIDENT =110
T+T= 40
FOURTY =105
DJT said on 10-5-17 “Maybe what your looking at is the CALM BEFORE THE STORM“.
Did @realDonaldTrump pick 10-5 by accident when, GOD’S WORD =105
How about
105 = AMERICAN DREAM
105 = SAVIOUR, the Biblical version with a U in it. Tiffany Blue=...
...105
CALM BEFORE THE STORM was Chapter 7 of #JFK’s book he wrote before coming 110 (President)
CALM BEFORE THE STORM =198 & that’s how many days were left in the year on 6-16-15, when #DJT announced he was running 4 @POTUS
As he came down the escalato, HERE COMES YOUR MAN=...

With Christmas coming up I wanted to share this BRILLIANT #calcio book I found in Italy last month...

It’s a #comicbook style biography of Roberto #Baggio. A brilliant concept, superbly executed

A short thread of page shots with details of the illustrator & where to buy it
1/5
It covers all parts of #Baggio’s career with accompanying comic book narrative - easy enough to follow even for a non-Italian speaker!

As you might expect, quite heavy coverage of the 94 #WorldCup

Trying to understand the #Magabomber 's 2 twitter accounts @hardrock2016 & @hardrockintlent. They just seem plain bizzarre. I mean i suppose u have to be quite off in the head to think these actions were somehow reasonable and sane. There is alot to unpack in this archived data.
#Magabomber guy used 3 different hashtags in total for both accnts & very infrequently. Both @robreiner & @RealRonHoward show up in his Twitter archives so I would assume they have been contacted. Looks like the Meme was his mode of communication

Watching last night's recap of the Trump-Putin summit on Russia's most popular TV talk show. The episode begins with talk of "aggressive" American journalists "who were all about the past," and praising Russian journalists, "who were all about the future."
The host, Vladimir Soloviev, says Melania Trump "was absolutely ecstatic to get the ball from the #WorldCup, which was a very subtle move by President Putin."
And here's @anniekarni in the frame of Kremlin TV.

Who do you want to win? #WorldCup
I'm all in for Croatia, though France is a much better team IMO.
First time since 1962 that a small nation or one without a rich footballing history makes it to the #WorldCup final. Since then it's always been the usual suspects.

Why Croatia winning the World Cup would mark the most glorious banter era in football history. (Thread) #cro
Let's start on a high note. Croatia travel to Wembley with nothing to play for while England need just a draw to qualify for Euro 2008. A Scott Carson howler later and Croatia win 3-2 and knock England out anyway.
After an excellent display at Wembley, Luka Modric joins Tottenham and transfers a percentage of the transfer fee to a Dinamo Zagreb director called Zdravko Mamic. Everything that happens next started here.

⚽️ Who are you supporting in the #WorldCup final?
It’s a tough call. France are our neighbours and Croatia are the underdogs.

A quiet day on the Brexit front, so let's think about the coming days:

1/
Today, assuming no resignations, it's about May getting some +ve support from EU leaders at #NATOSummit

2/
(I assume no resignations, as #WorldCup will drown any other story for next 24hrs, plus we seem to have moved from Cabinet to P'y posts)

#FRABEL thoughts: This #WorldCup is a gift that keeps on giving. This semi-final matchup lived up to its potential, with 22 stars producing excellence all over the pitch. Watching Mbappe play this well on the biggest stage is inspiring and he's younger than me...
Just about every player showed up today for both teams. Do not fault Lukaku, he has been great all tournament, and arguably the best striker during this world cup. Deschamps drew up a game plan to cancel out Lukaku's presence with two world class centerbacks, Varane and Umtiti.
Not to mention, Kante & Pogba were phenomenal in the midfield, blocking & intercepting key entry passes from De Bruyne/others through the middle for Lukaku. Very tough task for Romelu, give full credit to the french partnership of Varane & Umtiti rather than quickly bashing him.

With increased interest in #Croatia due to #WorldCup success, here's a short history lesson about the place:

A Slavic tribe named Croatians came to the area of modern-day Croatia in the 7th century, then promply began having sex with everything that moved for the next 200 years.
Some scientists suggest the word 'Croatian' means 'friend', which, with all the Netflix & chill going on, sounds just about right. Anyway, after 200 years of bow chicka wow wow with anything with a pulse, a modern-day nation of Croatia was born.
Croatia wasn't huge on offensive wars, and if you ever went to the place, you'd know why. Advisers to the king were like, yo, dude, we have one of the most powerful countries in Medieval Europe, and there are bunch of little ones around us to invade. How 'bout Duklja?

NEW on coming #Putin @realDonaldTrump summit: (2nd THREAD)
1. In recent days #Moscow passed a two-page document to #Washington that should serve as a basis/draft for a bilateral communique the two Presidents should present after the #Helsinki talks.
2. According to #Rus sources #US accepted the paper but insisted an issue of "#Russia/n interference into American elections in 2016" is mentioned with due guarantees that this doesn't happen again.

This is going to be a long thread. With the successful qualification for the #WorldCup semifinal it seems that now everyone is interested in & an expert on #Cro politics, nationalism and football. Since I've been studying that nexus for years, let me point out a few things /1
Nationalist gestures by players & fans, the president in a full-on checkered outfit celebrating with players, a public debate over #Subasic’s “ethnic background", a divisive media discourse & all of that while the #Cro “Golden Generation” has been playing some decent football /2
That has been the #World Cup for #Cro thus far. If you want to know more about why football is so political and so fiercely debated in Croatia (& on social media), here are a couple of thoughts, reading suggestions and potential #ff for you. /3
