Not Everyone Believes In Putin-Gate... And Many People Never Believed In Watergate Either

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 59 minutes ago
On Thursday, John Schildler, writing for *The Observer* compared Putin-Gate and Watergate, noting that the former Is Really Just Watergate for Morons—With Russians. And Schindler, like many of us, really is obsessed by how incredibly stupid Trump and his team really are. So... not just the most corrupt president in history, but, probably, the stupidest and least capable as well. Recipe for disaster. Trump, he wrote, "is viewed with undisguised contempt for his venality and stupidity, even by his hand-picked top staff. Trump’s own National Security Council chair observed that, duri... more »

Armenia's Parliament Will Not Nominate A Candidate From The Ruling Party For Prime minister

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 hour ago
*BBC:* *Armenia crisis: Ruling party quits PM race* Armenia's ruling party has said it will not put up a candidate in Tuesday's parliamentary vote for a new prime minister in a bid to ease tensions. It means the new prime minister will not come from the dominant Republican Party, for the first time since 1999. The party said it would back another candidate on the day of the vote. Opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan, who has led mass protests that forced the last prime minister to resign, says he should be the country's new leader. Serzh Sargsyan resigned on 23 April. He had been ac... more »

BBC Radio 4 marks a year out from Brexit - a review

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 1 hour ago
So how did BBC Radio 4's much-anticipated Brexit day - *Britain at the Crossroads* - on 29 March pan out? This, you may recall, was the BBC's way of marking one year before the date when we leave the EU, and it was evidently meant to showcase the BBC's range, depth and impartiality. I've not have the time to write about it so far, frustratingly, but I have (at last) finally heard it all. In lieu of a full-scale review (to come, no doubt, from the good folk at News-watch), I'll give my own impressions at, hopefully, not *too* great length (as John Milton might have said before p... more »

"The constellation of Orion is much more than three stars in a row. It is a direction in space that is rich with impressive nebulas.

Why Is China Testing A Laser At Their Military Base In Djibouti?

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 2 hours ago
*C4ISRNet*: *Who’s testing a laser in Djibouti?* Laser war is already here, and it might be so annoying it turns fatal. I am speaking not about directed energy weapons, the high-powered beams of light that most closely resemble the blasters and lasguns of science fiction. No, this is a simpler menace, one less about melting holes in objects and more on the side of blinding cameras and, occasionally, pilots. The news in this particular case is a Notice to Airmen from the U.S. military, sent out April 14th and in effect until at least June 14th, warning pilots of a laser in use nea... more »

Okinawa: U.S. strategy to circumvent protests

Bruce K. Gagnon at Organizing Notes - 3 hours ago
- Yesterday, due to the swell of the crowd at the construction gate at Camp Schwab, the government cancelled the usual convoy of dump trucks delivering huge rocks that are placed in Oura Bay. So about 50 people, including our VFP delegation, were taken to a Nago City port where the government has been loading rocks onto a ship that then takes them directly to Oura Bay in order to circumvent the gate blockades. Our job yesterday at the port was to stand in front of dump trucks as they drove up to unload their rock cargo which was then scooped up and placed... more »

North Korea Wants To Meet President Trump In Beijing Or Shanghai. The U.S. Wants To Meet Kim Jong-Un In Singapore Or Mongolia

*SCMP:* *Why Kim Jong-un may not want to meet Donald Trump in Singapore* While the Lion City may be Washington’s preferred choice for the groundbreaking meeting, the North Korean leader is believed to want to stay closer to home Kim Jong-un may be reluctant to travel to Singapore for his proposed summit meeting with Donald Trump, analysts said, citing a range of factors including North Korea’s distant relations with the city state and Kim’s reluctance to travel by air.

Is UK Gov. Using “Hate Speech” Laws to Try to Cover Up Murder of Alfie Evans?

Selwyn Duke at rss - 4 hours ago
[image: is-uk-gov-using-hate-speech-laws-to-try-to-cover-up-murder-of-alfie-evans] It’s bad enough that the British government played medical judge and jury before the death of little Alfie Evans, denying his parents the opportunity to take him to Italy for care. They also, say critics, have used the hate-speech principle to cover up their own complicity.

Foreign Policy Failure: America Has Not Learned from Its Wars

Daniel L. Davis at The National Interest - 4 hours ago
*Daniel L. Davis* *Security, Middle East* America must take a hard, critical, and unemotional look at its foreign policy in the post–9/11 era. It’s time for the Washington foreign-policy establishment to consider the seemingly unthinkable: perpetual foreign-military operations and occupations do not enhance American national security and economic prosperity. Overwhelming evidence—currently on painful display in Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen —reveals the stark reality that these operations drain our nation of critical resources, produces a slow-bleed of U.S. troops, and deteriora... more »

*Samuel Rines* *Economics, North America* [image: A worker paints a section of the inaugural platform in front of the Capitol in Washington] When dynamism decelerates, wage gains are likely to falter. Sometimes, the grass is greener. Economists, perplexed by the lack of wage pressures generated by the current economy, were looking in the wrong places. The quitters are the ones being paid. Former Fed Chair Janet Yellen once stated that quits, as measured by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, were one of her favorite indicators.

5 Best .22 Caliber Guns on the Planet (Ruger Made the Cut, Twice)

*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, North America* The best of the best at .22. The .22 Long Rifle (also known as 5.7×17mmR) cartridge is the oldest firearm cartridge still in common use. The “.22 LR” is so old that the cartridge’s date of invention is nearer to the Declaration of Independence than the present day. Despite the diminutive bullet’s age, it is still the most popular sub-.223 round in America by a wide margin, and the fifth most popular caliber overall, with more than a hundred thousand .22 LR rifles and pistols chambered sold every year.

The Army Wants to Destroy a Tank (without Destroying a City)

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 4 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, Europe* A good idea, but will it pan out? The U.S. Army has a problem. If its dismounted soldiers encounter enemy armored vehicles during a fight in a city, those vehicles will need to be neutralized. The problem is that any explosive powerful enough to destroy an enemy tank—for example, a Russian T-14 Armata tank—will likely devastate the surrounding buildings and their civilian inhabitants. Therefore, the Army wants a soft-kill weapon that can knock out a tank without obliterating a city block. As the Army research solicitation puts it with understate... more »

5 Worst Russian Rifles of All Time

Did Donald Trump Save the F-15 and F/A-18 (and Boeing)?

Dave Majumdar at The National Interest - 4 hours ago
*Dave Majumdar* *Security, North America* Perhaps. The Trump Administration’s rise to power has proven to be a boon for Boeing’s fighter programs. In previous years, both the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and F-15 Eagle production lines were expected to shut down as Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter looked set to dominate the fighter market both domestically and internationally. However, with domestic defense funding boosted and new overseas sales, the future looks brighter for both jets. “I think after several years of having to endure the damage of sequestration and a cha... more »

There was an astonishing interview on the Today Programme just after the eight o’clock news. In the studio with John Humphrys were Michael Gove and Diane Abbott. If you didn’t hear it, you should listen here. Go on. The topic was immigration and in particular those contentious targets. You know, the targets that led to a small fleet of innovative “go-home” buses intended to generate a hostile atmosphere for illegal immigrants, who would obviously take one look and immediately flock to the airport in droves or drive to the airport in flocks.

Imagine that, when the sun, the source of almost 100% of all energy warming our globe, goes quiet, the temperature of the earth falls. Who would have thunk it?

 The British colonization of Australia began in 1788. Historian Bill Gammage, a white fella, spent ten years studying the writings of early observers, as well as paintings, drawings, and maps from the era. The landscape in 1788 looked radically different from today. Much of what is now dense forest or scrub used to be grasslands. Early eyewitnesses frequently commented that large regions looked like parks. In those days, all English parks were the private estates of the super-rich. Oddly, the Aborigines who inhabited the park-like Australian countryside were penniless bare ... more »
