2 protests to the Jan 6 hearings and potential Trump prosecution: 1. “It’s a Dem smokescreen for inflation & crime!” (Petty “deflection”) 2. “Prosecution will lead to civil war!”(Baseless and I doubt it, but we can’t avoid what’s right, see: ending slavery led to civil war.)
Simple Clear Sad What people (or national leaders) do you know who habitually blame others, make excuses constantly, scapegoat entire organizations or groups… yet never take any responsibility? =Gauranteed life of misery & … apparently a strategy for a one term Presidency twitter.com/williams_paige…
Can we “pre-bunk” Putin’s lies? Moscow will seek to blame the coming famine on the US. Unfortunately, the “Global South” will largely continue to believe his lies. Will US factions? How Vladimir Putin Is Plotting to Weasel His Way Into American Hearts thedailybeast.com/how-vladimir-p…

True, “no sitting or former president has ever been put on trial.” But so what? Not even Nixon matched Trump’s crimes, and Nixon would’ve been put on trial but for the pardon he got from Ford. Failing to try Trump for his crimes would mean anything goes. nytimes.com/2022/06/11/us/…

No reasonable person can claim the big lie was anything but a lie. A very powerful case can be made is that he is nuts. Stark raving nuts.

Trump's former Attorney General Bill Barr told the House Jan. 6 committee that Trump's claims of election fraud were "crazy stuff" and "complete nonsense.” After an Oval Office meeting with Trump, Barr said, "he has become detached from reality if he really believes this stuff"

They sent Trump money to fight ‘fraud’ and he stole it. He told them he would walk to the Capitol with them, then slinked away. When they were arrested, he didn’t pardon them. He hasn’t contributed a penny to their families or legal defense. And they love him more. Cult.

🧵As a retired Army officer, tomorrow, the 6th of June, has deep meaning for me on many levels as the anniversary of the D-Day Invasion when nearly 160,000 Allied troops—the Greatest Generation—stormed the beaches of Normandy.1/ [🚨Non-Cyber Thread�Edx

COVID-19 won’t be our last pandemic, but I am deeply concerned that many decision makers are looking at the COVID situation and saying “that was bad, good thing we don’t have to go through that again for another hundred years”. 15/

#OnThisDay in 1948, Israel declared itself an independent and Jewish state. Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria responded by attacking the new nation. Roughly 17,000 people died during what became known as the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Israel emerged victorious.

Once again, it's not NATO expanding itself but the free people of democratic countries choosing to join. NATO is not threatening anybody but an alliance for defence. If you feel intimidated by people's freedom to choose, don't blame us. Look into the mirror. #FinlandNATO

When you see his atrocities and wonder “what is Putin thinking?” Remember: Russia, China, much of the “Global South” (erroneously) blame the US, NATO or Ukraine for the invasion. They also see the US as a predatory force. Pope Says NATO Started War (sic) thedailybeast.com/pope-francis-s…

Consent of the governed & ability to make the sausage of democracy is being murdered The #SocialMediaEmergency destroys shared truths and makes us truly fear & hate “the other” It turns America’s multiple diversities from strength to fault line targeted by enemies and profiteers

Isn’t it hard to believe what has become hard to believe?
The Russian Army seemed hellbent on demonstrating they were the most inept fighting force around. Then the Russian Navy said: Hold my vodka. If Russian leadership were upset over having their super yachts seized - how are they going to feel about losing a guided-missile cruiser?
