  3. Russia Says It Has Developed A New Weapon That Can Fly 27 Times The Speed Of Sound Putin described the Avangard hypersonic glide vehicle as a technological breakthrough comparable to the 1957 Soviet launch of the first satellite. ......It carries a nuclear weapon of up to 2 megatons. Putin has said Russia had to develop the Avangard and other prospective weapons systems because of U.S. efforts to develop a missile defense system that he claimed could erode Russia’s nuclear deterrent. Moscow has scoffed at U.S. claims that its missile shield isn’t intended to counter Russia’s massive missile arsenals. Earlier this week, Putin emphasized that Russia is the only country armed with hypersonic weapons. He noted that for the first time Russia is leading the world in developing an entire new class of weapons, unlike in the past when it was catching up with the U.S......... https://www.huffpost.com/entry/russia-new-weapon-27-times-speed-of-sound_n_5e078c4dc5b6b5a713aed993?ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000067

  5. Anguish and Anger From the Navy SEALs Who Turned In Edward Gallagher Video interviews and group texts obtained by The Times show men describing their platoon leader in grim terms. ......“This stuff is frustrating to read and makes it seem like Eddie will possibly get away with murder (literally),” Special Operator First Class Dylan Dille texted the group. “Let’s not forget there are 7-12 of us in here who had the balls to tell the truth about what Eddie has done.” He said he thought the case against Chief Gallagher was strong despite the procedural setbacks. “I am also convinced that we are gonna answer to a higher power someday, and everything happens for a reason,” wrote Special Operator Dille, who has since left the Navy. “Not compromising our integrity and keeping right on our side is all we can do.”........ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/27/us/navy-seals-edward-gallagher-video.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage

  8. Disturbing new video, details in Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher's case Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher was acquitted of shooting civilians and killing a captive ISIS fighter earlier this year. But newly-obtained interviews with the SEAL team members who originally accused Gallagher, done by The New York Times' The Weekly, put the case in a disturbing light. NBC senior national correspondent Kate Snow reports. Retired United States Navy admiral James Stavridis offers his analysis with MSNBC's Ali Velshi. https://www.msnbc.com/ali-velshi/watch/disturbing-new-video-details-in-navy-seal-eddie-gallagher-s-case-75762245738?cid=sm_npd_ms_tw_ma
  9. Trump outed the whistleblower — and the internet wants Twitter to ban his account: ‘Truly deplorable’ .......There were calls for it be a new article of impeachment and for Twitter to ban the commander-in-chief’s account. Here’s some of what people were saying: https://www.rawstory.com/2019/12/trump-outed-the-whistleblower-and-the-internet-wants-twitter-to-ban-his-account-truly-deplorable/
  10. Soledad O'Brien @soledadobrien · 6h Also mainstream media outlets frequently book guests who lie, intentionally, on their air. CNN is one such outlet. Instead of shunning those guests they are booked again and again and again. When CNN’s media reporter pretends his own news org isn’t part of this BS, it’s a problem
  11. Brian Stelter @brianstelter "We have this alternative media ecosystem that is driving a lot of disinformation. It is not understood by journalists or anyone really beyond a very small group of people who are really engaged with it," @EliotHiggins says https://firstdraftnews.org/latest/year-in-review-the-biggest-threat-is-failing-to-address-the-reality-of-online-alternative-media-ecosystems/
  12. Seth Abramson @SethAbramson BREAKING NEWS: Trump Attempts to Out CIA Whistleblower By Retweeting Washington Examiner Article with Alleged Name of Whistleblower in Its Headline; the Move, a Violation of Trump's Oath of Office, Threatens National Security By Seeking to Intimidate Whistleblowers into Silence 4:52 PM · Dec 27, 2019
  13. "....... “The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.” ....... To the core Trump constituency — and an audience primed for this over years of acrid ‘liberal media’ critique — two things were said. “We’re going to rough these people up.” (Because we know how long you have waited for that.) But also, and in return, you have to accept our “alternative facts” even if your own eyes tell you otherwise. This too is a stark message. The epistemological “price” for being a solider in Trump’s army is high. You have to swallow, repeat and defend things that simply don’t check out. ...... the central problem of covering the Trump movement since 2015. (I wrote about it here.) A simple example is fact-checking. One of its premises is that candidates and office-holders can be shamed into staying roughly within factual bounds. A president who has no sense of shame “breaks” the practice by busting the premise ......... on the right there is an incentive structure that compels Republican office holders to use their time on Meet the Press for the spread of disinformation. ...... http://pressthink.org/2019/12/the-christmas-eve-confessions-of-chuck-todd/ -GOP, Trump, Fox Playbook since 2015 = destroying faith in MSM “The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.”
  14. George Conway @gtconway3d · Dec 26, 2019 Or how about Republicans’ circus-like occupation of a closed hearing room, on the pretext that they were being shut out, when in fact every Republican member of three separate committees was entitled to attend? The *whole Republican strategy* was not to address the evidence, which they can’t do, but to try to turn the impeachment proceedings into a partisan circus —and then complain that the proceedings were a partisan circus. https://twitter.com/teri_kanefield/status/1210013357350084608 …
  15. The Christmas Eve Confessions of Chuck Todd That disinformation was going to overtake Republican politics was discoverable years before he says he discovered it. "....... Chuck Todd has essentially said that on the right there is an incentive structure that compels Republican office holders to use their time on Meet the Press for the spread of disinformation. So do you keep inviting them on air to do just that? If so, then you break faith with the audience and create a massive problem in real time fact-checking. If not, then you just broke the show in half. There is simply nothing in the playbook at Meet the Press that tells the producers what to do in this situation. As I have tried to show, they didn’t arrive here through acts of naiveté, but by willful blindness, malpractice among the experts in charge, an insider’s mentality, a listening breakdown, a failure of imagination, and sheer disbelief that the world could have changed so much upon people paid so well to understand it." http://pressthink.org/2019/12/the-christmas-eve-confessions-of-chuck-todd/ ========================================================================= -poor Chuck........too 'naive' for today's political reality?? “The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.”
  16. Fri., 12-27 for Underground......... 2:00 AM (ET) B/W - 86 m TV-MA Satanis, the Devil's Mass (1970) Synopsis: Shot in 1969, the documentary is most memorable for showing Anton LaVey conducting black masses in a horned-devil outfit, but also aims to be an even debate on modern Satanism with members of the church and opponents being interviewed about the pros and cons. Dir: Ray Laurent Cast: Anton Szandor LaVey , "......... the new Church of Satan in the late '60s and found itself captured on film in Satanis: The Devil's Mass, the legacy of LaVey and his initiates remains a fascinating and still unique one in the history of American religious practices and the often hysterical response by the public." see: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/563656/Satanis-the-Devil-s-Mass/articles.html
  17. Trump claims Nancy Pelosi and impeachment offends all Americans of faith. He's wrong. As Christians celebrate Christmas this week, many of us remember that rulers who are willing to use religion to cling to power by any means necessary. "...............By cultivating the myth of a Christian America in decline, this network built a movement that was primed for the promise of “Make America Great Again.” They are more than happy to pray for Trump; not because they believe he is perfect, but because they see him as the kind of fighter their decades-long culture war needs. Trump is right: Christian nationalists are offended by Nancy Pelosi’s prayers. They are offended by the prayers of all people of faith who refuse to believe that the GOP is “God’s Own Party.”.......... new Democratic majority elected a speaker whose faith compels her both to pray for the president and to challenge his abuse of power. She is not alone. Many Americans of faith have said prayers of thanksgiving that Trump was finally held accountable for his defiance of democratic norms. As Christians celebrate Christmas this week, we remember that rulers who are willing to use religion to cling to power by any means necessary have always been part of our story........ While it is still not clear what impeachment will mean for those who hope for justice, the debate about faith in public life has helped to clarify that Christian nationalists are not the only people of faith in America. We who pray for truth and justice must do everything in our power to reduce the influence of Christian nationalism in 2020.

  19. Pope Francis denounces 'inhumane detention camps' for migrants in Christmas message ......he also said that “the light of Christ is greater” than darkness “in human hearts," The Associated Press reported. The “Urbi et Orbi,” which translates to, “to the city and to the world,” is a now traditional moment for popes to address suffering around the world and call for change, according to the AP. Pope Francis discussed migrants who are forced “to emigrate in the hope of a secure life” and their difficult journeys, referring to the dangers they face along the way and “inhumane detention camps″ around the world. As migrants reach “places where they might have hoped for a dignified life,” the pope said, they “instead find themselves before walls of indifference.”........... "May Emmanuel bring light to all the suffering members of our human family.May He soften our often stony and self-centred hearts,and make them channels of His love. On this joyful day,may He bring His tenderness to all and brighten the darkness of this world." .......... https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/475902-pope-francis-calls-for-hope-peace-for-migrants-in-christmas
