#Congress never voted to send troops to #Syria, but in five minutes we will be voting on a #resolution that disapproves of #Trump removing them. We should have never gone to Syria. We should leave Syria. I’m voting no on this resolution.

Protesters plan to topple #HongKong #government, new #manifesto for provisional government recited, senior government officials to be dimissed

In the development of human #civilisation, it is inevitable for a dysfunctional institution to be abolished and replaced by a better one. This is how progress is made. If a government is not of the people, by the people, for the people, then it is inevitable that the people will establish a government of the people. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has proved itself to be not of the people, by the people, for the people. We hereby declare the establishment of the Provisional Government of Hong Kong.

Twitter executive revealed to be 'psyops' soldier linked to spreading disinformation across social media: "A threat to our democracy"


Gordon MacMillan, who joined Twitter in 2013 and is listed as the company's Head of Editorial for EMEA, also serves with the 77th Brigade—an outfit formed in 2015 to conduct "information warfare" and develop "non-lethal" ways of conducting war.

The report, published in Britain's Middle East Eye, revealed how MacMillan served with the unit for several years.

Blood is already being spilt on a small scale here on the streets of England over this matter, and I can only hope that the violence doesn't escalate.

It's quite simple:- Over 3 years ago we had a referendum as promised years earlier, on whether to leave or remain in the “European Union”.

17.4 Million people, that's 52% of the voters decided to LEAVE, as opposed to 48% who decided to remain. Note :- the largest number of eligible voters for decades actually voted.

As a result the UK government were TOLD by the People to get us OUT of the “EU”.

David Cameron (who voted to remain) was Prime Minister at that time, and because the referendum received the WRONG ANSWER from the People, he was forced to resign.

IN A #DEMOCRACY, #PEOPLE ABIDE BY THE MAJORITY'S DECISION.

Poland : Democracy is at stake. Time for solidarity


By launching the "There is no freedom without solidarity" cause Gazeta Wyborcza and Gazeta Wyborcza Foundation aim at creating a movement of people of solidarity in times difficult both for Poland and its citizens, as well as Gazeta Wyborcza and its journalists.

With this new, international newsletter we are asking you to join our cause and let us inform you, in a weekly manner, about key news from Poland. There is no freedom without solidarity and so it is our obligation to monitor and report government’s attacks on all communities and groups which are scapegoated for political gain and actions that are eroding our democracy.

Please, share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues interested in Polish affairs. Let both - the message "There is no freedom without solidarity" and the truth about the situation of free Poles in their own country - be heard as widely as possible.

Nobody Understands Democracy Anymore – Tablet Magazine


#politics #democracy

*When Mounk peers out at the state of advanced democracies today, he sees a rising tide of both illiberal democracy and undemocratic liberalism—and, perhaps most worryingly, how each trend feeds off and then fortifies the other. This is Mounk’s greatest insight and his fundamental contribution to the conversation on contemporary democracy. *

#Damn! This show is great! #TheUncertainHour is a great #Podcast. If you are a fan of the #Clinton's (specifically Bill & #Hillary), you might not like this content. They point out how many #American's lives were negatively impacted by the #Clintons legislative advances. These are some of the types of people who thought giving #Trump a chance would be a good idea. Hopefully, they changed their minds, but let's all be aware of how policy is often a zero-sum game.
