What are the major takes of #EUelections2019 ? (thread) 1/7

“The 2019 EU elections will come down in history as giving birth to an embryonic form of EU political space" #EUelections2019
“The record-high turn-out across the continent proves that these elections were felt differently. The unfolding of Brexit as well as unprecedented mobilization by both political parties & civil society ahead of the vote contributed to make these elections more salient" 2/7 #EU
“While these #EUelections seemingly remained a largely domestic affair, with national referenda on governing parties, in countries such as France, Italy and Greece, these elections mark the birth of a more political Europe” 3/7 #EUelections2019

Among workers the picture is far starker. Among those who were eligible to vote in 1992, today no less than 87% say that if Maastricht was re-run they would vote "Non".
Here is the link to data in case people would like to explore…

Pakistan welcomes the re-election of India PM Narendra Modi to a second term. He makes Indian history. In this #thread, I explain why Islamabad is pleased to see #Modi win & how a historic opportunity emerges to resolve #Kashmir, make peace./1
Ahmed Quraishi @AQpk #AhmedQuraishi
During the dogfight over #Kashmir skies in Feb 2019, when a #Pakistan-#India nuclear war became a possibility, unprecedented international diplomatic intervention diffused tensions & averted war. But unlike previous crises, many things changed this time. One: world listened to
#Pakistan this time instead of just listening to #India. The 6-times smaller country was always smothered under the attention that India received globally. This time, #NewDelhi overreached, crossed int'l borders to conduct airstrike inside Pak. Strike failed, pilot captured.

In initial interview before reaching ambulance, @MsNazContractor, playing the Muslim councilwoman whom Detective Carisi (@PeterScanavino) has already informed us is famous for anti-Semitic remarks, tells him & Detective Rollins (@KelliGiddish) that "those people" are responsible
for her assault. Thus, she confirms her antisemitism. The councilwoman is an barely concealed stand-in for Ilhan Omar, a representative to the US House of Representatives from Minnesota's 5th District. @nbcsvu @SVUWritersRoom
Min 0458: A reporter asks Chief Dodds (@petergallagher): "Councilwoman Nasar is an on-the-record anti-Semite. Can you comment?" Chief Dodds doesn't contradict the reporter's assertion, thus implicitly confirming it.

Vote for #Farage and get this. This man is Crispin Odey. He bankrolled #VoteLeave and made 220m when leave won by shorting the pound. Farage helped the markets to fluctuate when he 'conceded' the referendum early. You are being used to fill their pockets. #BrexitParty #EUElection
Odey also has links to Rees-Mogg. He helped Jacob set up his hedge fund, and also helped towards his election costs. They are all in this together, they pretend to care about the working-class, but in truth they are exploiting us to make more money.…

@_aLFRe_ @derbeHotline @TajanaGudenus 1. Why do I have a problem?
I'm in Germany.
But would not rule out intelligence services being involved in the #Strache-Video.
@cicero_online mentions #Mossad (Israeli secret service) - I'm not certain.
German #BND - I would not rule out!
@_aLFRe_ @derbeHotline @TajanaGudenus @cicero_online 2. #Boehmermann (GER comedian): Knew about #Strache-Leak in April 2019, but I think this is too big for him.
"Zentrum für Politische Schönheit" (#ZPS from #Ruch, is a far left leaning outfit engaged in "political happenings") may be involved. I also posted names.
@_aLFRe_ @derbeHotline @TajanaGudenus @cicero_online 3. My take: The #Strache-Video
- was planned for a long time
- planning includes befriending & gaining the trust of #Gudenus
- Gudenus introduced the "fake billionaire" to #Strache
- the #villa had to be set up (cameras & more): Ask re owner, who rented it out?

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

1/ In addition to the daring choice of title, this policy paper lacks crucial basic assumptions about the current situation in #Syria and thus suggests that there may be a more reasonable alternative to the #EU's sanctions policy against the regime.…

Dear MAGA friends, QAnons and European Patriots. What is your take on Steve Bannon? I just researched a little bit and find it more than interesting what is unfolding right before our eyes:

Bannon rivals George Soros

(2) From the beginning: In August 2010 Andrew Breitbart told, that he was "committed to the destruction of the old media guard." Former executive chairman: Steve Bannon.

(3) On 28 Feb 2012 Andrew Breitbart tweeted "How much longer until they kill me...?" Which was only two days (!) before his death. Coincidence? Steve Bannon would then become the head of Breitbart News.

Despite all the tough rhetoric, #Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, tells top political & military officials in a religious-type meeting an hour ago in #Tehran that #Iran does not want a war with #America.

Nothing surprising here. The ayatollahs long abandoned the slogan Great Satan for the #US and actively sought strong ties with #Washington under #Obama WH. In #Afghanistan & #Iraq, the #IRGC & Gen. Soleimani quietly cooperated with US military & intelligence, until recently.
In return, again under #Obama WH, the #US turned a blind eye as #Iran/#IRGC/#Hezbollah expanded influence from #Nigeria to #Malaysia, thru #Yemen/#Gulf, and hosted elements of #Taliban+#AlQaeda as guests inside Iran, but without allowing them to be operational.

Some analysts seem to think, that #USDJPY must decline when/if #SP500 is to decline or crash. That is not the case! Observe yellow markings #HZupdates
#USDJPY and #Gold have strong inverse relationship. Both have formed triangles since 2015. Now - main direction will continue. USDJPY towards ~154 - and Gold towards ~800 USD #HZupdates
#Gold did bottom in 2015 - but only for a bounce! A "ZigZag-pattern" is defined by A-B-C waves. A from 2011-15 = 5 waves. B from 2015-19 = Triangle (abcde). Now 5 waves down in wave C. Decline may be very strong! #HZupdates

#EUval2019 mötet #sibiu #svpol

Mycket bekant med staden, bör ta lärdom av #Sverige

Varför möttes de inte i Ungern? 🤔 Inga liberala EU vänner där? 🤔

Stackare i #aktuellt förväntar sig en förbättring, ingen uppgradering att göras #hemIös som #toppexpert i IT #setech #sthlmtech
Jag menar, de har liberala EU vänner i öst-EU som får nyskapat kapital i förväntning att de skall ta emot flyktingar

Och de förväntar sig bli som väst, USA YESS 😂

Men du görs hemlös med flyktingar medan de uppvisar den fina "liberalismen" #svpol

För att gå till djupet

De flesta är redan #konservativa, var ute nu i #malmö, folk klär sig fint, pratar fint, ingen ansträngning alls för oss

Med #EU kapital vill de förändra denna #natur som från #traditionella #sibiu #svpol där vi #toppexperter hamnar under #EUval2019 #sibiu

#China backtracked on nearly all aspects of #US trade deal - All of us that follow & know China knew that this was never going to fly. You can't negotiate with a rogue, predatory state like China. This is for the better.…
The diplomatic cable from Beijing arrived in Washington late on Friday night, with systematic edits to a nearly 150-page draft trade agreement that would blow up months of negotiations. The document was riddled with reversals by China that undermined core US demands, sources said
In each of the 7 chapters of the draft trade deal, China deleted its commitments to change laws to resolve core complaints that caused the US to launch a trade war: theft of US IP & trade secrets; forced tech transfers; competition policy; access to financial services, etc, etc.

Short #Brexit thread: There's an absurd notion snowballing in hysterical columns and pseudo-reporting about Britain becoming somehow less liberal, less open, more authoritarian and less friendly to immigrants compared to #EU nations because of #Brexit.
But in fact anyone who's ever lived on the continent knows that Britain is and remains a beacon of liberalism, integration and tolerance. Leading pundits/reporters covering #Brexit are actual EU foreigners based in Britain - imagine that ever happening in Germany or France?
I've sat on high-profile #Brexit panels/discussions in London where majority of speakers, yours truly included, spoke English with a thick accent. Imagine that in Germany, Italy? In fact continental colleagues are often mystified about foreigners working in senior UK media jobs

1. Am I the only one infuriated with the view that if @theresa_may and @jeremycorbyn agree a #brexit #customsunion then all is fine. This ignores the fact that it is leaving the #singlemarket that is the killer for business making, importing or exporting products. Why? A thread..
2/ Much of the commercial debate around #Brexit has focused on whether we stay in the #CustomsUnion or not. That is because this is the current battle between #Conservatives and #Labour. If Labour prevailed, and the UK remains in a Customs Union, then the tariff issue dies
3/ However, the much bigger problem relates to the #SingleMarket. Neither main party wants to stay in the Single Market because you can’t have free movement of goods, services and capital without accepting the same for people. But abandoning the single market means...
