Today’s threat to the truth also comes from a social media whose algorithms prefer virality to veracity, where lies spread faster than facts. It comes from ideologues happy to dismiss overwhelming scientific evidence, whether on climate change or the safety of vaccination, as breezily as those who once insisted that the Earth was flat. It comes from a technology now so advanced that it can create false evidence, in the form of deepfake video, audio and text.
The country’s treatment of Kavanaugh and Sandmann reveal the conclusion of that calculus. We have seen it before, we will see it again. Familiarity doesn’t dilute the poison.
If Russia does not cease its alleged violations of the INF Treaty within 60 days, Washington will withdraw from the treaty. Credible evidence for those alleged violations is as absent today, as sound proof of the alleged Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. The western debate is still ignoring solid Russian evidence that the USA is violating the INF Treaty with the installation of NATO’s missile defense systems in Romania and Poland.

Berlin seeks to avoid the installation of US medium-range missiles in Europe, because they would restrict the EU’s planned military autonomy. Government advisors are suggesting other armament measures against Russia.

Other leaders expected it, they were prepared to back it, but it never came.”
no other nation can come close to the United States in space. Moreover, because of the long lead times baked into aerospace development, almost every “accomplishment” that demonstrates American leadership in space during the next 3.5 years will have started long before President Trump took office. That said, here’s a rundown of how America already leads in space.
“As soon as the cops pulled up the leaders of the event grabbed the permits,” he said. “They [the police] forced us to stop playing and grabbed our drummer by the shirt and dragged him through the crowd.”“We had the proper permits,” The Cast Owner Chuck Gaurino told Bowerie Boogie. “Taped to all the amps like we always do. In the years past, the cops would roll up to check to see if we have our permits, we show them, they say ok keep it cool, and they go on their way. It was an insane act of excessive force to say the least.”
