Detention Center (c) Rob Goldstein 2018

Rob’s Weekly News Wrap-Up 12/14-12/21

Compare the words and actions of Trump and the House and Senate

It is chilling to see how it all fits together and more chilling to realize
Putin achieved a primary strategic goal:

incapacitate as much of the state as possible before it is aware of the conflict. From the NATO Handbook of Russian Information Warfare.

Most Americans still don’t know we’re under attack.

Russia strategically uses powerful nonprofits like the NRA to discredit government agencies and erode the credibility of law enforcement. From the NATO Handbook of Russian Information Warfare.

Russia pollutes the pool of information and thus creates a ‘permissive’ media environment that treats Russia’s lies as credible. (are there really two sides to the idea that it’s wrong for the Trump Administration to hold toddlers in detention centers?)

Context, what can it mean when the U.S. President unilaterally makes decisions that everyone says will only benefit a foreign adversary?
