The CIA orchestrated the overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya by arming extremist militias. With Gaddafi dead, many militia members traveled to Syria/Iraq to join existing CIA-backed al Qaeda affiliats, thereby creating ISIS.
To rearm their mercenary militias, the CIA started a gun running op out of an annex near the US Embassy in #Benghazi. The weapons left the port, went to a CIA base in Turkey, then down into the hands of ISIS in Syria & Iraq.
The CIA annex in #Benghazi included contractors from Blackwater (aka US Mercenaries). Islamist militias thought the guns were at the Embassy, so they attacked it to get the weapons. Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed, as well as 3 CIA mercenaries in the process.
#Benghazi was a nightmare debacle for the CIA & their partners in the US State Department that were trying to hide the gun running operation to Islamist militants in #Syria. As Sec. State, Hillary Clinton helped to try and cover up what really happened.
Donald Trump supports the CIA and their regime change ops all over the world. He is so deep with the CIA that he made the CIA director his own Sec. State. So when Trumpers try to make #Benghazi all about Hillary, I'm stunned by their ignorance. Trump is just as bad as her.

WHAT THE HELL IS ANTIFA, ANYWAY? This thread will help answer some questions for you. Enjoy & retweet.
2. Antifa is not a single group. It is a loose network of groups & individuals who coordinate their activities. Think of the word "Antifa" like you do "feminist". Feminist doesn't mean a single, organized group, but a lot of groups/individuals with overlapping beliefs. #Antifa
3. The #Antifa movement began in Europe in the 1960s. It had a small following in the US near the end of the 70s. But Antifa in the USA grew exponentially following the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

Biden: "I condemn violence of every kind by any one, whether on the left or the right." This isn't good enough.He needs to completely leave Trump out of it & speak directly to the factions that he has some influence over, even if Trump doesn't follow suit.…
Biden needs to be the bigger man. Trump will not call out his own supporters, nor will Trump supporters listen to Biden. But, Biden can influence the leftist factions if he speaks directly to them and asks them to go home. Even if only a few listen to him, it would be worth it. ImageImage
Biden likely has very little influence over the leftist mobs. But he does have influence over the Democrat party which consists of millions of people. If he sets the example by calling out the violence, then the friends family & associates of the rioters may emulate his example.

#Kenosha Facts: BLM/Antifa arsonists were burning down private properties. A local teen with firearms training stood with others to try to protect the businesses from the criminals, with the consent of the police. He killed an arsonist who attacked him with a Molotov Cocktail...
... Rioters began hitting him as he ran toward police vehicles to report the shooting. In self-defense, he shot a man who pulled a gun on him. He shot another man who attacked him w/ a skateboard. When he got to the cops, they recognized him from earlier interactions with him...
This teen is not a white supremacist or a "boogaloo". He was one of many nearby residents who took a stand against violent arsonists. He is on camera before the shootings trying to help rioters get medical attention for injuries from incidents with the police. #Kenosha

It's time for us to head to the hospital. The babies are on their way! I'll post birth updates as time allows.
I'm pretty sure that Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg just checked in ahead of us at the hospital. 👩‍⚖️ ImageImage
The anesthesiologist just came in. Turns out we know her very well. My wife taught piano to her children for several years. She just moved back from half a year of work in Rwanda. She also told us that all 6 in another family my wife taught (who moved to TX) all have Covid! 🤒 Image

We can reduce the chance of having a bad case of #Covid19 by boosting our immune systems:

- Stop smoking
- Eat more fruits/veggies
- Exercise
- Reduce Stress
- Get Enough Sleep

Add your immune system-boosting tips to this thread. Image
Eat More Garlic! Allicin, a compound in garlic, is well-known for its ability to boost the immune system. The most benefit comes from eating one-half of a raw garlic clove daily. If you can’t stomach raw garlic, the next best thing is to roast it. ImageImageImage
PRO-Biotics! Probiotics are live microorganisms that have health benefits when consumed. They can be found in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, tempeh, sauerkraut, kombucha, kimchi, sour dough, etc. Studies suggest they reduce the severity of #Covid19. ImageImageImageImage

People blasted Obama in '16 for sending federal goons against citizens who took over the Malheur Refuge in OR. But in 2020 they are cheering Trump for doing the same thing. Likewise, those who railed against the Bundy takeover are now in OR's streets themselves. #Partisanship ImageImage
The way that our egos identify with political parties or figures has a big impact on how we interpret events. Patriots who saw nothing wrong with the militia takeover of Malheur and who decried federal agents intervening are the same folks cheering for federal agents today.
And the leftists who saw the Bundy militia group as domestic terrorists and demanded federal intervention are now the ones in Oregon streets getting tear gased to protect vandals and protesters from federal intervention.
