So Germany won't send arms to Ukraine but does to Egypt. The US, on the other hand, sends arms to Ukraine but won't to Egypt because of human rights violations. 🤷‍♂️

This guy voted to give his Rich Donor Buddies $2 TRILLION and blew up the debt by $7.5 TRILLION under Trump. Don't believe a word he says when he whines about debt

Lavrov’s letter to OSCE members is getting much more attention in Finland than Estonia. A palpable worry about narrowing room for maneuvre in Finland - which Estonia as a NATO member does not share. Foundations of Finnish - and Swedish - security policy are under heavy pressure.

Weird how people who put their faith in God to protect them from a deadly virus feel the need to be armed to the teeth to go grocery shopping

The treaty established Estonia’s eastern border, and Soviet Russia recognised the independence of the Republic of Estonia in perpetuity. Perpetuity lasted 20 years. To think of it, Budapest Memorandum was signed in 1994 and 20 years later Russia invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea

How did the UK become the world's capital of money laundering? For anyone opining on this, @OliverBullough 's explainer is the *sine qua non* primer on how it came to pass. (Trigger warning: this is depressing as hell)

"54% of American adults between the ages of 16-74 read below a 6th grade level. So that means we have an epidemic of illiteracy," professor Brittney Cooper reacts to book banning. "If you make people ignorant, then it becomes much easier to control them."

ICYMI @PressSec used the perfect metaphor for #Russia ’s propaganda claiming it fears aggression from #Ukraine : “When the Fox is screaming from the top of the henhouse that he's scared of the chickens… that should not be reported as a statement of fact.”
