BIG: @nytimes obtained previously classified surveillance video of the botched drone strike in Kabul: nytimes.com/2022/01/19/us/po… The military *rarely* releases strike footage from civilian casualty incidents. Until now, we had only the military's own descriptions of the video...

I truly wonder how much longer America can hold out before it just collapses. Jobs are paying $30k, houses are $300k+, food is getting more expensive, student debt is killing us, gentrification is making people homeless, rent is sky high. Like how much longer can this last?

lmao Bernie's reward for being the strongest advocate of Biden's agenda is to be so far as I've seen the one guy shit-talked by name at this press conference
President Biden says he's not trying to pull the country to the left: "I'm not Bernie Sanders. I'm not a socialist. I'm a mainstream Democrat...If you notice, 48 of the 50 Democrats supported me in the Senate on virtually everything I've asked." cbsn.ws/3AeCBBw

He’s daring 44 million borrowers not to vote for him.
A reporter wrapped up Biden's press conference with what she said was a "very simple question." "You campaigned on canceling $10k in student loans," the reporter said. "Do you still plan to do so and when?" Biden "had nothing to say about that promise." businessinsider.com/biden-ig…

.@POTUS and @SecBlinken, when will you end US support for this horror? Concern is not enough. The US government is complicit.
At 4 in the morning, after violently assaulting the Salahiya family and forcibly removing them from inside, Israeli forces destroyed the Palestinian family’s home.

Today’s installment of bot wresting is a wild ride! #disinformation
1/ 🧵Hope you're ready for an epic thread! It begins with a canal project in Afghanistan and a cafe worker called Sophia, but ends by explaining how 91% of likes on UAE Crown Prince @MohamedBinZayed's tweets are created by at least 11,000 bots/fake accounts #disinformation #UAE

This would have massive humanitarian consequences. The Biden admin lifted the designation last year - in spite of Houthi attacks - to spare Yemenis from even higher food, fuel, and healthcare prices. Also, it didn't create any useful leverage. None of this has changed.
During this presser, Biden said his administration is considering re-designating the Houthi rebels in Yemen as a terrorist organization. Taking them off the list was one of his first actions in office.

At 3.30am this morning Israeli regime forces crept into the home of the Salahiya family in Sheikh Jarrah & expelled them from their home beating up children in the process. The bulldozers were then brought in to destroy their home of 60 + years. This is Zionism in practice.

Biden just said in a news conference that he’s a “capitalist” - as if we didn’t know - but what does it say that he says he is a capitalist instead of a public servant? 🌹

Biden completely ignored the question about his promise to eliminate $10,000 of student loans per borrower. He completely ignored it. Didn’t say a word.
Replying to @StrikeDebt
“You campaigned on canceling $10,000 in student loans. Do you still plan to do so? And when?” @POTUS takes the reporter’s second question. The he ends the entire press conference.

Don't forget the Naqab where Palestinians are continuing to resist the theft of their land.
Israel’s arrest rampage in the Naqab is ongoing. Now they are entering al-Sau’a village. This is a long standing Israeli strategy to crush resistance & intimidate Palestinians into submission. It never worked & it won’t now. At least 45 arrests this morning. #انقذوا_النقب

In an apparent genuflection to the illegal U.S. embargo against the island, Dutch multinational bank ING has blocked all donations supporting the vaccination help brigade, the group said Tuesday.
It is hard to overstate the inhumanity of the US government. As David Adler of @ProgIntl states: "A European bank, established in the Netherlands, has decided to put the interests of the U.S. government above the lives of millions of people." commondreams.org/news/2022/0… #covid19
