Right-wing Greek government kills refugees

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 2 March 2020 video from the British (Conservative) Daily Telegraph says about itself:

Greek coast guard officers allegedly fired shots towards a boat full of refugees crossing the Aegean as tensions with Turkey soared over the migration crisis on Monday.

Video footage showed a Greek coast guard officer, dressed in black, fire two shots from an automatic rifle into the water, close to an inflatable dinghy packed with asylum seekers.

The footage, reportedly taken at sea off the Turkish resort town of Bodrum, showed other officers apparently threatening the migrants and refugees with poles as they screamed and yelled in protest.

Intelligence Community Warns Voters “Foreign Actors Attempting to Influence Sentiment and Voter Perceptions”…

MyLegalHelpUSA

A comprehensively corrupt U.S. intelligence apparatus warns voters that foreign influences are attempting to support any candidate adverse to the interests of a corrupt Intelligence Community. Americans “must remain aware that foreign actors continue to try to influence public sentiment and shape voter perceptions.”

What a Deep State message.  According to the interests who transmit the warning…

It’s not the demonstrably proven history of corrupt political activity by officials running U.S. intelligence agencies that has eroded public trust in these institutions.   Why no, it’s foreign actors who amplify the sunlight upon proven corrupt political activity by officials running the intelligence agencies….. We swear, it’s their fault – Trust us.

A hospital for injured turtles

Sharing

At the turtle hospital in Marathon, Florida, vets are currently taking care of 42 sea turtles. “But five are coming,” adds Bette Zirkelbach.
The next day, he reports that five others are doing CT scans at a normal hospital – “the human hospital”.

The Turtle Hospital is a veterinary rehabilitation center that, since opening in 1986, has treated and released thousands of sea turtles.
The facility hosts around 100 turtles each year, but this number can vary considerably. They hosted 81 turtles in 2016 and 175 in 2015. Of all these sea turtles, about half had a disease called fibropapilloma, or FP for short.
FP is a herpes-like virus that causes benign tumors. In themselves, tumors are not lethal, but they can eventually kill turtles by compromising their ability to breathe or swim. Recently, the hospital has tested a cutting-edge electrochemotherapy technique to remove tumors. Through a technique called electroporation…

Battle Hymn of the Republic & efforts to end the slave trade

NarrowPathMinistries

By Bill Federer

Five dollars was all she was paid by the Atlantic Monthly Magazine for her poem, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” published FEBRUARY 1, 1862.

It became Lincoln’s favorite song and the Union’s theme song.

Her name was Julia Ward Howe, the daughter of a Wall Street banker and the wife of Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, director of a school for the blind in Boston, which grew into the famous Perkins Institute.

Julia and her husband entertained John Brown in their home and published the anti-slavery journal Commonwealth.

In 1861, Julia traveled to Washington, D.C., and saw the city teeming with military, horses galloping all around and innumerable campfires burning.

Julia Ward Howe wrote:

“I went to bed that night as usual, and slept, according to my wont, quite soundly. I awoke in the gray of the morning twilight;

and as I lay…

Billionaire Republican buys major Twitter stake, may oust CEO amid GOP concerns of bias, reports say

By Gregg Re | Fox News

A billionaire Republican megadonor has purchased a “sizable” stake in Twitter and “plans to push” to oust CEO Jack Dorsey among other changes, according to new reports, raising the prospect of a shocking election-year shakeup of the social media platform that conservatives have long accused of overt left-wing political bias.

Paul Singer’s Elliott Management Corp. has already nominated four directors to Twitter’s board, a development first reported by Bloomberg News, citing several sources familiar with the arrangement. The outlet noted that unlike other prominent tech CEOs, Dorsey didn’t have voting control over Twitter because the company had just one class of stock; and he has long been a target for removal given Twitter’s struggling user growth numbers and stock performance.

Singer, who opposed President Trump’s campaign in 2016, has since changed his tune, raising the prospect that some of the changes to Twitter could make the platform a friendlier place for pro-Trump users. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Singer donated $24 million to Republican and right-leaning groups in the 2016 election.

“As you know, Paul was very much involved with the anti-Trump or as they say ‘Never Trump,” and Paul just left [the White House] and he’s given us his total support and it’s all about unification,” Trump said in 2017. “So, I want to thank Paul Singer for being here and coming up to the office. He was a very strong opponent and now he’s a very strong ally and I appreciate that.”

Twitter has long rankled not only conservatives but also independent-minded commentators and left-of-center activists. In 2018, feminist Meghan Murphy slammed Twitter for the “dangerous” banning and silencing of users who didn’t follow the platform’s guidelines. Murphy was banned after writing that “men aren’t women,” in defiance of Twitter’s stated views on gender.

“I don’t want to draw a line that ends up silencing people who have political ideas, or who are talking about ideologies, or who are challenging popular discourse that has been deemed offensive,” Murphy told The Hill.

HOWARD KURTZ: IS TWITTER CORRUPTING JOURNALISM, OR EXPOSING ITS UTTER UNFAIRNESS?

Twitter did not immediately reply to a request for comment. “We prohibit targeting individuals with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanize, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category. This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals,” Twitter’s website read.

Meanwhile, Jordan Peterson, the Canadian professor who famously protested legislation that would punish professors for refusing to use students’ custom pronouns, began development recently on a “free speech” alternative to Twitter called Thinkspot.

And, California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes last year filed a major lawsuit seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages against Twitter and a handful of its users, accusing the social media site of “shadow-banning conservatives” to secretly hide their posts, systematically censoring opposing viewpoints, and totally “ignoring” lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.

“Twitter is a machine,” Nunes’ personal attorney, Steven S. Biss, told Fox News. “It is a modern-day Tammany Hall. Congressman Nunes intends to hold Twitter fully accountable for its abusive behavior and misconduct.”
