RT – Facebook & Atlantic Council unite: Now social media giant serves NATO’s agenda

Facebook has engaged a think tank funded by weapons manufacturers, branches of the US military and Middle-Eastern monarchies to safeguard the democratic process. It’s akin to hiring arsonists to run the fire brigade.

If Facebook truly wanted to “protect democracy and elections worldwide,” it would build a broad coalition of experts and activists from a wide and disparate range of the countries it serves. Instead, the American social media giant has outsourced the task to NATO’s propaganda wing.

For the uninitiated, the Atlantic Council serves as the American-led alliance’s chief advocacy group. And its methods are rather simple: it grants stipends and faux academic titles to various activists that align with NATO’s agenda. Thus, lobbyists become “fellows” and “experts,”while the enterprise constructs a neutral sheen, which is rarely (if ever) challenged by Western media outlets – often reliant on its employees for easy comment and free op-eds.

While that has always been ethically questionable, Facebook’s latest move, given its effective monopoly position, is far more sinister. Because it is now tied to a “think tank” which has proposed terrorist attacks in Russia and has demanded Russian-funded news outlets be forced to register as “foreign agents” in the United States.

Make no mistake: this is a dream scenario for NATO and those who depend on it for their livelihoods and status. Because the Atlantic Council is now perfectly positioned to be the tail wagging the Facebook dog in the information space.

RT – Origin of the moon called into question by groundbreaking new study
he prevailing theory of how our moon came into being is that a giant collision billions of years ago created the craggy rock. However, a new theory has called into question our basic understanding of lunar origin.
A study led by UC Davis planetary scientist Sarah Stewart and Harvard University’s Simon Lock, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, presents a new hypothesis for the formation of our satellite. The paper also explains some inconsistencies in the predominating ‘impact theory’.

They are a reliable and indispensable addition to any trans-Arctic ocean voyage.

RT – ‘Narco-state’ Netherlands? Police union sends warning on overstretched resources

The Netherlands has started to resemble “a narco-state,” with criminals running a parallel economy, and law enforcement is struggling with resource shortages and poor facilities, the Dutch police union has warned.

In the eyes of many Dutch investigators, “the country already has a lot of features of a narco-state,” according to the national police association’s report, which was published on Tuesday. “In the last 25 years, I’ve seen small dealers grow into large entrepreneurs with good contacts in politics and into so-called respected investors,” said one of 400 detectives quoted in the report on condition of anonymity.

Based on accounts gathered over the past year and a half, the NPB report reveals some disturbing facts. According to police officers, only 20 percent of all cases receive attention due to severe shortages in detectives. As officers have to focus more on cases of brutal robberies or murders; small crimes, including a majority of those targeted against the elderly or vulnerable, often remain unpunished.

“With current people and resources, only one-in-nine criminal groups are being dealt with in the fight against organized crime,” the report says.

RT – Humanity is doomed now that robots can open doors (VIDEO)
The latest SpotMini ‘doggie droid’ – originally programmed to help clean dishes – could be a formidable opponent should robots ever rise up against humanity. The extremely dexterous machine has mastered the art of opening doors.
Another sound creation by the team at Boston Dynamics, the SpotMini has been around before, with a version of the nimble robot filmed marauding around an office space and even stacking a dishwasher.
