If you wonder whether we have political prosecutions & imprisonment(s) in Britain, you'll want to read this account of the recent Just Stop Oil 'conspiracy' trial.

If the Labour Party wants to return us to the Rule of Law, then they need to but a very swift stop to actions like this!

Presented without social or political context (mainly because I have no idea what is going on):

If pressed, I would guess that the principle in question here is that #fascists get along great as long as they are on opposite sides of the globe

Almost a Renaissance painting... of Renaissance era political feeling!

Absolute truth: Trump spoke at the Heritage Foundation as they kicked off Project 2025, and there’s video

Here, this is important; if anyone believes Trump’s lies about not knowing anything about Heritage Foundation / Project 2025 / Mandate for Leadership, here he is speaking to the Heritage Foundation in 2022 as they’re kicking off the project to build the “detailed plans for exactly what our movement will do.”

This is as firm a proof that he’s knowingly lying as could ever be had. It’s direct proof that he was lying, from his own mouth, in his own words, on audio and video. Use it.

Did you know 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations are not allowed to engage in political activities, but Heritage Foundation (organization behind Trump's Project 2025) does and knows they shouldn't?

Dear Reporters: when you get to ask a question, it shouldn’t have five sentences of pre-context and a second follow up question at the end.

One question and stfu.

"Behind the expansive playbook [ #Project2025 ] is its advisory board, made up of dozens of think tanks and advocacy groups, including three that are designated #hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center...

And despite Trump’s recent attempts to distance himself from the plan, these group’s fingerprints were all over his last administration and will likely be all over his next one."

Democrats can be honest, I argue, or they can spend the next four months looking voters in the face and falsely claiming Joe Biden is fit to serve until January 2029. https://www.salon.com/2024/07/10/dishonest-biden-defenders-sound-like-maga-surrogates-as-they-privately-admit-he-cant-win/ #news #politics


I woke at 10, turned on MSNBC. 40min. later, they're STILL talking only, only, only about everyone who thinks Biden should step aside. Oh look!--now they're interviewing ANOTHER guy who says he should. Ignore the 200 or so who say he shouldn't or haven't said. Gotta focus on the few who want him to! Nothing about his decent NATO speech. Nothing about Project 2025. Nothing about Trump endorsing Dean Phillips. Nothing about the GOP blocking that abortion bill. Nope. Let's interview someone else who wants Biden to drop out. Breathless reporting!--Nancy Pelosi DODGED the chance to endorse Biden...by saying she would support anything Biden decides to do. OMG! Surely that means...?? Didn't one of the defecting Dems also endorse Dean Phillips...who Trump just endorsed? Oh! Better not report that...let's find another naysayer so we can keep ignoring asking ACTUAL VOTERS who they're voting for...Biden! Etc. etc. etc.... 🤮 #politics

The media is going out of their way to normalize Trump and demonize Biden. One thing I think we can do is remind people of this when they seem to follow the media down the “Biden is horrific” rabbit hole. Remind them of the big picture- we only have 2 options. Option one is for a banana republic with presidential power that is nearly unlimited, and option two is someone who is AGAINST that. That is what matters right now, not rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. #politics #uspolitics

* It abolishes the Dept. Of Education.

What is the appeal of #populism in #uspol ? #OrenCass has an article in the #NYTimes , and a thread on Twitter:

"My long-but-worthwhile-read @nytimes is about the American political class's self-righteous detachment from the economic and social conditions of its nation. This is the root cause of present instability and poses the most serious long-term threat to the Republic. 🧵"

The scale of the challenges that NATO faces today at its 75th birthday, both within and without the organization, dwarfs what it confronted as it commemorated its 50th anniversary in 1999 (the last time Washington hosted the summit).

About 500 years ago, Machiavelli offered some #leadership lessons for would-be dictators.

But based on his studies of the fall of the Roman Empire and Renaissance Florence, he also offered advice for people who wished to avoid a Machiavellian dictatorship – and any Americans reading it should take notes.

A political science professor from Tufts University breaks down a few things to take into consideration from Machiavelli:

I refuse to click on any of these stories so I screenshotted the headlines instead of posting the articles to make my point. This is beyond ridiculous.

This #FourthofJuly weekend, stop using #nationalism and #patriotism as synonyms.
🇺🇸Patriotism encompasses devotion to the country as a whole – including all the people who live within it.
🇺🇸Nationalism refers to devotion to only one group or people over others.

Adam Bienkov, on the 'great noticing'....

'Across whole areas of public life, from our crumbling schools, to our failing hospitals, large parts of the press that have spent the past 14 years in an extended period of slumber, will suddenly be getting their tickets for the great festival of noticing to come'!

Yup, what was un-noticed by the Right-rabble press, will now suddenly be noticed & we'll be asked why Labour is doing nothing about it?
