Just days after Putin met with Donald Trump Russia starts testing new nuclear weaponry.

Russia’s military is testing an array of new nuclear and other weapons, from a high-powered laser weapon system to a nuclear-powered cruise missile with “unlimited” range.

The Defense Ministry made a string of announcements about progress on the weapons, unveiled in a speech by President Vladimir Putin in March.

The ministry said it has tested the Burevestnik cruise missile on the ground and is now readying flight tests. Military officials said they are practicing use of the Peresvet high-powered laser weapon system, and launching trials of the Poseidon underwater nuclear drone.

Putin has sought to flex Russia’s muscle amid tensions with the West. But Thursday’s announcements came as Putin stressed the need for talks with Washington on nuclear arms control treaties, after his summit this week with President Donald Trump.


Now keep in mind that one of the things that the Russian media is reporting about that meeting between Trump and Putin was an agreement on an arms treaty. 

If such an agreement was actually discussed it is clear that Putin has no intention of reducing the Russian nuclear capabilities. 

Of course, it is important to remember that Putin is in the driver’s seat in all “negotiations” with Trump, so he could very well have convinced the leader of our country to reduce the number of America’s nuclear weapons while he works to increase his own, thereby causing a shift in nuclear dominance.  

Which if you think about it is rather silly, since it really does not matter how many more times one country can destroy the planet than another country, all that matters is that nobody should have the power to destroy the planet.

    The Selling of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

    Meet the shadowy PR firm working to confirm Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

    The 10 days since President Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to join the Supreme Court have seen a coordinated campaign to cast the judge as distinguished, impartial and moderate. That has included glowing op-eds from left and right in The New York Times and The Washington Post, and quotes from his former clerks about his love of football and how he ”will never, ever go wobbly.” Kavanaugh even appeared at a photo-op feeding the homeless.

    This is, of course, no coincidence. Shortly after Trump announced Kavanaugh’s nomination, political reporters received an email from CRC Public Relations. “Would you be interested in speaking with any of Judge Kavanaugh’s former clerks or any legal experts that can help with your stories?” it began, and included a link to a list of quotes describing Kavanaugh as “wonderful,” “brilliant” and “incredible.”

    CRC Public Relations is a staple of the conservative public affairs ecosystem. The firm, originally called Creative Response Concepts, was founded in 1989 but first achieved prominence in 2004, when it coordinated the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign, a nationwide PR and advertising campaign to cast doubt on Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry’s war record.

    Since then, CRC has been behind the curtain for nearly every conservative cause, including the National Organization for Marriage, the Family Research Council and the Republican Party itself. During the development of the Affordable Care Act, current Florida Gov. Rick Scott tapped CRC to help roll out ads describing the horrors of socialized medicine in Canada and the United Kingdom. In 2009, as America debated the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, CRC reportedly sent more than 60 emails to a Washington Post reporter offering editorials, quotes describing the justice as an extremist and “a Web posting accusing Obama of race-baiting in selecting her.”

    Though few are publicized on its website, CRC’s links to the conservative movement are numerous. Its current president, Greg Mueller, was communications director for conservative Pat Buchanan during his 1992 and 1996 Republican presidential campaigns. Eugene B. Meyer, the president of The Federalist Society, a conservative legal group that developed a list of judicial nominees for Trump, told The New York Times in 2005 that he received media training from CRC. Last year, Republican strategist and Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway sold her polling company to the firm.

    CRC’s role in the campaign to confirm Kavanaugh, too, appears to go beyond pitch emails.

      Sunk judicial pick spills over into Supreme Court fight

      Democrats are seizing on the failed nomination of Ryan Bounds, President Trump’s unsuccessful circuit court pick, as they look for leverage in a fight over confirming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

      Democrats say Bounds’s nomination, which was foiled by questions about controversial, decades-old writings, bolsters their demand for documents tied to Kavanaugh’s time in the Bush White House and as a political operative.

      “If Republicans agreed that Bounds is not qualified because of what he wrote in college, how could they possibly argue that material from Brett Kavanaugh’s time in the White House and as a political operative aren’t relevant?” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) asked after a vote on Bounds’s nomination was cancelled.

      She added in a tweet on Friday that Democrats are “asking to review all of the records from Kavanaugh’s career to fulfill the Senate’s ‘advice and consent’ responsibility. Reviewing the entirety of a nominee’s record is what the Judiciary Committee has always done.”

      Demands For Kavanaugh Paper Trail Becomes Flashpoint Of Dem Fight

      Democrats are demanding to see the conservative appellate court judge’s lengthy paper trail before they even start meeting with him, let alone casting their votes on a lifetime appointment that could shift the court rightward.

      The documents extend far beyond the 53-year-old’s nearly 300 rulings as a judge on the circuit court of appeals.

      The Democrats are demanding access to paperwork from Kavanaugh’s tenure as staff secretary in the George W. Bush White House, on the 2000 election presidential recount and on Special Counsel Kenneth Starr’s probe of Bill Clinton. The tally could stretch at least 1 million pages. The paper chase has become a game of high-stakes political strategy.

    White supremacists’ disturbing outreach to ‘Russian friends’ shows why Trump’s fondness for Putin is even darker than it seems

    …The apparent alliance between Russian nationalists and American white supremacists suggests a foreign policy agenda that Trump seems to be pursuing. It would involve closer ties to largely white, authoritarian states like Russia while distancing the U.S. from liberal multicultural democracies, like Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany.

    That Trump might be intentionally undermining the structure of global alliances and attempting to replace it with a much more sinister framework is an idea that hasn’t been widely discussed — but it is urgent that we begin taking it seriously.

    Homophobia, misogyny and Islamophobia: How the right’s new darling is tossing red meat hatred to Trump’s base

    Everyone on the right — from Fox News to the NRA — has fallen in love with a pro-gun rant from unhinged conspiracy theorist Mark Robinson.

    his Saturday, pro-gun control MAGA hordes will gather at the Orange County Second Amendment (OC2A) rally in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Among the speakers will be the newest darling of the right—recently granted fawning coverage by outlets such as Breitbart, Twitchy, Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller and Glenn Beck’s The Blaze—Mark Keith Robinson. The right’s latest attack dog epitomizes the current Republican brand, as a “birther pundit who says gay people are ‘devil-worshipping child molesters,’ black Democrats are ‘slaves,’ the student survivors of the Parkland shooting are ‘silly little immature media prosti-tots,’ and Michelle Obama is a man.”

    As Shareblue Media notes, Robinson became a favorite among alt-right and right-wing media back in April after delivering a pro-gun speech at a town council meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina. But he’s also incredibly vocal on social media. In a Facebook post dated February 7, Robinson wrote that homosexuality has been “pushed…over the top” and hysterically concludes “PEDOPHILLA is next, which will be closely followed by the END of civilization as we know it.”

    There is nothing more beloved by the GOP than a token visible minority who’s eager to promote the party’s racist views.

    Watch: Rachel Maddow exposes evidence showing Trump’s team was behind Cohen tape leak

    …Then Maddow pivoted into explaining how this is “really important now to understanding why we have all learned about this today

    “So that means the only people who would have had access are [Trump and] Michael Cohen’s lawyers,” she said. “His lawyers apparently didn’t leak this thing… it means by process of elimination that president Trump’s lawyers did.”

    Maddow said that Trump’s lawyers leaking the tapes mean that they serve his own interests.

    “Don’t get your chain yanked on this one,” she said. “President Trump’s lawyers found out this tape existed. For obvious reasons they realized it may be a pretty ugly thing. So today the president’s lawyers themselves appear today have leaked the existence of this tape to get out ahead of this story… You should know the reason we got those headlines is because the president’s legal team decided you should see this story today. They did it themselves.”

    Watch below.

    Experts explain why Trump loyalists refuse to accept that their idol is compromised

      ” refuse to accept that President Trump is a senile, braying, compromised authoritarian.”
      ” Methodologically sound statistics, well-documented reports, scientific research and historical information are objective and reliable and thus should be taken seriously, to be sure, but because they are still inherently intangible — matters to be processed by the mind rather than observed with the senses “>”If you see that and then insist that Trump didn’t betray America to Russia — never mind whether you believe that betrayal technically constitutes treason, a point which is legitimately arguable — you are either (a) more loyal to Russia than America, a scenario that may apply to Trump himself but almost certainly does not apply to the vast majority of the people supporting him right now or (b) rendering yourself willfully insane in the literal definition of that word — that is, adopting a state of mind that prevents you from perceiving the reality that is right in front of you.” “The disconfirmation bias is the one where we try to ignore information that doesn’t fit the way that we think the world is supposed to be.””

      “Mason explained. “And essentially the more of it that you have — which right now means the more you are exposed to media arguments that help you justify what you’ve seen — the easier it is for you to say, ‘Well, I can explain it because “Fox & Friends” this morning just showed me how to explain it.’ Or, ‘because I’m reading Breitbart and that told me what exactly is happening here and it told me how to get my brain around it in a way that makes it okay.'”
      “So it’s not exactly ‘I’m seeing something, I know that it’s false and I’m trying to deal with it.’ It’s ‘I’m seeing something, I want it to be true, and I’m going to contort myself mentally using tools that have been given to me by my trusted media sources to make it okay.'” OK?!

        Brain wash the masses. Until they figure out they have been used.
        Oh shit. Good luck with that.
