.@aircanada quick recap of my day trying to ✈️ you MTL(YUL)->NYC:
-Get to airport 6A for 825A flight - cancelled
-Put on 350P flight (killing work day) — cancelled hrs early
-Told no other options to NY today - closest = Hartford, CT...landing hours later at 850P
-In interim... -...friends on one of your supposedly overbooked NY flights (when I inquired as to options), btwn 825A & 350P, send pics of open seats on their flight, which gets home fine — along w/ at least one other flight in the window
-Given how late landing in Hartford w/ customs, etc...

You're not alone @ByronYork. To dare to disrupt the Trump-Russia collusion narrative (regardless of intent - to investigate critical stories irrespective of how they are parsed for political purposes) is becoming a thought crime. See this re Feinstein spy What’s going on right now is the equivalent of Left — and really the pol establishment broadly — saying “Nice little write-up of our activities there (re anything that might divert from Trump-Russia narrative/expose their abuses). Shame if you got thrown off Twitter bc of it.”

Utterly amazing to read this 1997 report on Sen Feinstein’s family’s political and business ties to #China in context of revelations about a Chinese spy working for her as a driver for 20 years, quietly let go seemingly rather than being brought to justice… More on Feinstein’s decades-long #China-philia, coinciding w her family’s profiting bigly there. Shades of T Kennedy dancing w Soviets. Makes you wonder why Chinese spy of 20 yrs in her employ was merely let go. Who else penetrated her office? To what end?…

A recent Pew poll indicates a staggering divergence in views on #Israel vs the Arabs of Palestine between Republicans and Democrats in America. Increasingly, Israel is becoming a one-party, Republican, issue. How and why did this happen? THREAD… The largely Democratic American Jewish political establishment argues the Trump admin through its #Jerusalem capital recognition/embassy move decisions and beyond are cynically acting as staunchly pro-#Israel, "politicizing" the issue. Pew says otherwise…

Trump DOJ wants to reinstate a basic question on citizenship in the census. In their immigration intransigence, Left is revolting. THREAD on the emerging controversy over a potential change affecting $bns of tax dollars and every leg district in America… ...And also I might add a thread on the Left's attack on a citizenship question that perfectly justifies the reinstatement of the question -- because transparency on this issue is so critically important to American citizens and the Dems want to hide it.…

Trump's NatSec Strategy #NSS challenges the myths of the NatSec/foreign policy establishment's Wilsonian progressives -- myths based on flawed premises generating failed policies. Its Kirkpatrickian core would make the US stronger and more secure. THREAD👇… The pol establishment is aghast over Trump's brash style, lack of conventionality and political incorrectness -- with its over-the-top revulsion serving as a form of virtue-signaling. On NatSec/foreign policy, the difference is truly substantive.…

There's arguably a far bigger Obama admin scandal relating to #IranDeal appeasement than shutting down the #ProjectCassandra investgiation into the #Hezbollah financing cars-for-cocaine, one involving upwards of $100bn flowing into the mullahs' coffers… As @FDD's @JSchanzer detailed in a must-read @TheAtlantic piece "The Biggest Sanctions-Evasion Scheme in Recent History" (…) #Turkey-#Iran concocted a "gas-for-gold" trade yielding $bns as part of an effort to wage "economic jihad"…

EU lobbying for #IranDeal is premised on two falsehoods:
1) Claim that deal is keeping a lid on the nuke program, yet we can't inspect the military sites where the program likely exists
2) Claim that econ benefits are going to Iranians, yet #IranProtests… Reality: Pathetic moral equivalence in EU leader comments re #IranProtests casting theocratic regime and civilians as comparable, reminiscent of Obama "both sides must show restraint" gobbledygook shows just how afraid Europe is to upset #Iran's mullocracy…
