   Duma in the first reading adopted bills on punishment for fake news and insults of government on the Internet

For naming things with their own names (about the second law), you can be fined with 1–5 thousand rubles or "drive away" for up to 15 days (well, and the post will be blocked)

What?  You appreciate what language you are you are (ab)using and how that came to be?  You couldn't be more wrong unless you were speaking Latin, or perhaps Mongolian.

To be fair, the UK Tories (in conjunction with your US Democrats) do seem to be dead set on starting something with Russia that they presumably expect the US to finish.....Suffice it to say that I don't identify with any part of that, nor in my experience do a good portion of the British public, despite what our media would have you believe.

Possibly the most ridiculously selective (& utterly self defeating) survey that I've ever seen:

When asked about their general views of the United States, almost half of the Arab public surveyed expressed positive views (48%).

 

Well, the ones who haven't recently been bombed by the US, at any rate.....I'm guessing including polling figures from Iraq, Syria & Libya might skew those numbers a bit.  :rolleyes:

 

PS - If you believe that shit, I've got some seafront property in Birmingham that would make a perfect vacation home for you.  :)

   Sabha is under the control of the forces of the government of national unity, which is based in Tripoli.

It looks like they have tracked down "Patient Zero" for the measles outbreak in Washington State.

 

https://komonews.com/news/local/patient-zero-identified-in-measles-outbreak?fbclid=IwAR3al2VnhEPI3F2OYuztjSQRDnH7WaUOcxpU4-_1pDW_2X9saOo491Fce_Y

 

State health officials say the first person to contract measles in the latest outbreak was someone from outside the country.

That person, according to State Epidemiologist Dr. Scott Lindquist, came into contact with a large group of un-vaccinated children.

"All those kids that were un-immunized went to public places like Ikea, Costco and a Portland Trailblazers game," he said.

 

...

 

Editorializing here, but generally the sort of people who are gung-ho about not vaccinating their kids are also the ones totally OK with opening the borders to whoever wants to come across. Given the voting habits of Clark County, I feel my hypothesis is fairly accurate.

   The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation proposes that the American side, in the period prior to the expiration of the INF Treaty, take the necessary measures to return to strict compliance with the Treaty by destroying:

1. Deployed onshore universal launchers Mk-41, designed to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles;

2. Practice targets missile, similar in their characteristics to medium-and short-range ground-based ballistic missiles;

3. Destruction of unmanned aerial vehicles, which fall under their characteristics under the definition of the term “ground-based cruise missile” provided for in the Treaty.

In the wake of sanctions from the US and Europe, it looks like Venezuela is trying to hawk its oil to India who seems happy to continue doing business with the Maduro regime.
