About fifty percent of the members in a given sample are susceptible to the third-person effectunderestimating their degree of influence.
Writing in The Atlantic, James Fallows said: Those are the choices, though both are possibly true, so that the main question is the proportions … never before have I seen an American president consistently, repeatedly, publicly, and shockingly advance the interests of another country over those of his own government and people.
This is the president of the United States essentially taking the word of the Russian president…over his own intelligence community.
It was astonishing, just astonishing to be in the room with the U. Representative Liz Cheney, the daughter of the former vice president, said on Twitter: Russia poses a grave threat to our national security. The indictments were announced on Friday, three days before the summit, with the clear intention of getting Trump to cancel it.
He ignored cries from the media and Congress to do so. The danger inherent in that thinking is clear. Not by the executive, by the law enforcement. Trump reasonably questioned why the FBI never examined the computer servers of the Democratic National Committee to see whether there was a hack and who may have done it.
Instead a private company, CrowdStrike, hired by the Democratic Party studied the server and within a day blamed Russia on very dubious grounds.
Where is the server? I want to know, where is the server and what is the server saying? At the press conference, Putin offered to allow American investigators from the team of special counsel Robert Mueller, who put the indictment together, to travel to Russia and take part in interviews with the 12 accused Russian agents.
He also offered to set up a joint cyber-security group to examine the evidence and asked that in return Russia be allowed to question persons of interest to Moscow in the United States. Examination of whatever evidence they have to back up the indictment is not what the DOJ is after. As I wrote about the indictments in detail on Friday: Those allegations are routinely reported in U.
Trump emphasised that point in the press conference. If Russia is indeed guilty of remotely hacking the emails it would have had no evident need of assistance from anyone on the Trump team, let alone a public call from Trump on national TV to commence the operation.
Only a desperate person would see it otherwise. But there is a simple explanation why establishment journalists are in unison in their dominant Russian narrative: As Samuel Johnson said as far back as We have 90 percent of nuclear power between the two countries.
I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace than to risk peace in pursuit of politics. We have 90 percent of the nuclear. So Trump was vilified for even trying. In Iraq the U. Sputnik Also on Syria, Trump appeared to endorse what is being reported as a deal between Russia and Israel in which Israel would accept Bashar al-Assad remaining as Syrian president, while Russia would work on Iran to get it to remove its forces away from the northern Golan Heights, which Israel illegally considers its border with Syria.
They would like to do certain things with respect to Syria, having to do with the safety of Israel. In that respect, we absolutely would like to work in order to help Israel.
Israel will be working with us. So both countries would work jointly. They do coordinate in Syria and other places.
Today, I brought up this issue with President Trump.Gang members carry guns and twitter accounts. Media outlets nationally have reported on a new phenomenon of gang affiliates using social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to trade insults or make violence threats that lead homicide or victimization.
Christopher Bollyn is a well-travelled writer and an investigative journalist who has done extensive research into the events of September 11, , the conflict in Middle-East and the health effects caused by exposure to depleted uranium. (Media/ Society, ) Fiske sheds a different light on the reason for the popularity of violence than the common belief that we like to see violence because we, as humans, are naturally aggressive.
