But Putin also admitted the joke's wearing thin as he attacked "political schizophrenia" gripping Washington and rejected US media reports that Trump disclosed confidential intelligence to Lavrov. The turmoil in Washington "made us laugh" at first, "today it's not just sad, it's a matter of concern," he said.

Not really. Musk is fucking out with pretty much all his KPI's when it comes to fulfilling contractual obligations for NASA. This is one reason why NASA are re-focusing on space transport, particularly to near-earth orbit, themselves. They publicly called Space-X out on this on social media a while back.

Musk is a massive egotistical piece of shit, on a highway to nowhere. His engineer turnover is apparently horrendous, allegedly worse than Steve Jobs.

But de-funding NASA's earth science missions is stupid. Really, really, stupid.
I think it's lint.

The letter suggests that if Trump does not un-block his critics, he will find himself embroiled in yet another lawsuit over another of his violations of the Constitution. When a person is blocked on Twitter, this makes it impossible for them to speak directly to the person who blocked them or even view their account, and vice versa. Therefore, people that are blocked from Trump’s Twitter account are barred from participating in threads and conversations that are open to the rest of the country. This, free speech advocates argue, violates a person’s right to engage in political dialogue and discriminates on the basis of viewpoint.

Elspeth Reeve is weird, she's totally flirting with this neo-Nazi...


...and in a past life she was married to the soldier she was supposed to be fact-checking for the magazine she was working for. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Thomas_Beauchamp_controversy

to be honest she looked more like she was on the nod, but rather than assume shes a victim of the opium epidemic, i think it was just that the sun was in her eyes.

ive never heard richard spencer speak before, just seen some of his more reprehensible quotes after he was punched, but holy fuck is he a douchebag.
