U.S. Military Intelligence Steps Up Accusation Against Russia over Nuclear Testing



The DIA’s original accusations in late May came after the Wall Street Journal reported that a new U.S. intelligence assessment found Russia “likely” has tested nuclear weapons with very low yields at Novaya Zemlya, a collection of islands in the Arctic Circle.

In addition to provoking a rebuke from Russia, the U.S. government’s accusations about Russian low-yield testing have prompted skepticism among some disarmament advocates.

The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, Calif., said its regular open-source monitoring of Novaya Zemlya hadn’t detected any alarming activity.

In a statement late last month, the center’s Eurasia program director, Sarah Bidgood, said that absent new evidence that Russia is conducting low-yield tests, it appears that U.S. officials are rehashing past allegations about Russian test violations “in order to support the narrative that Russia is an unreliable partner in arms control, with whom verification does not work.”

Bidgood said the accusations could be an effort by U.S. officials to lay the groundwork for a decision not pursue an extension of the 2010 New START accord with Russia, which expires in early 2021.


Not the cleanest excerpt, sorry.

GEO Group Donated to the Trump-Tied Turning Point USA, Then Got Rave Review

GEO Group Donated to the Trump-Tied Turning Point USA, Then Got Rave Review

TPUSA’s communications director visited a GEO Group detention facility and called it nicer than public schools she’d attended.

Right-wing student organization Turning Point USA (TPUSA) accepted $50,000 from the foundation of the nation’s largest private prison company in 2017, a Sludge investigation of tax documents has found. The GEO Group Foundation gave two donations of $25,000 on March 24 and October 23, each listed as “part of [its] annual contribution.”

GEO Group rakes in hundreds of millions of dollars each year in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contracts, which have increased sharply under President Donald Trump’s harsh immigration policies. TPUSA, which openly supports Trump and regularly has Trump administration officials and family members, such as Mike Pence and Donald Trump Jr., speak at its events, frequently sides with ICE, the division of the Department of Homeland Security that detains undocumented immigrants and contracts with private prison giants including GEO Group and CoreCivic. TPUSA Pres. Charlie Kirk often tweets in favor of ICE.

TPUSA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by Charlie Kirk in 2012 to “identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.” The group bills itself as a “grassroots activist network,” yet it receives funding from Republican politicians and GOP megadonors, including Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.), Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, former Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, and shipping supplies magnate Richard Uihlein.

Following the GEO Group Foundation donations, multiple TPUSA leaders created social media content praising ICE and GEO Group.
