Russia again makes Russia. With rockets

Vladimir Putin drew my attention this morning: Russian President warned that Moscow was targeting the United States with new missiles if the Trump administration canceled the arms control deal by deploying new mid-range missiles in Europe. The United States announced this month that it will withdraw from the deal, arguing that Russia has violated the Cold War pact. So what kind of missiles are we talking about here? While addressing the state, Putin praised the development of the new Russian Zircon missile, which he argued that he could fly at a distance of six hundred and fifty times faster than sound. Russia is ready for talks with the US on disarmament, "Putin said," but we will not be knocking on the closed door anymore.

Hate groups have reached a record high

Increased extremism, the number of hate groups operating in the United States rose to the highest level last year. According to the new South Poverty Law Center, active hate groups climbed to 1020 last year, compared with 784 just four years earlier. Groups range from white rule to black nationalists and from neo-Nazis to neo-confederates. The calculation, however, is controversial: it gives the same sign of hatred to the conservative Republicans of Texas, called anti-gay, as it is done with outfits like the Ku Klux clan. (The Ku Klux clan seems to be falling, reports the report.)

The real fast

The Supreme Court: Taming excessive fines

The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that States can not impose excessive fees, fines and seizures of criminal sanctions A unanimous decision makes it clear that the prohibition of the eighth amendment on "excessive fines" applies to states and localities, as well as to the federal government. Why is this important: state and local authorities are increasingly using funds collected in the event of payment of their services. A court order may reduce this. Law Attorney Ruth Bader Ginzburg, this week from cancer surgery, wrote the opinion of the majority.

Teachers of West Virginia go out. Once again

A year ago, teachers from West Virginia began to strike and evoke a national movement. What did they get out of it? The historic blow struck trade union leaders and inspired exit from Oklahoma to Arizona to Los Angeles, but this did not achieve significant results. This month, re-elected West Virginia Republicans tried to restrict teachers' unions and encourage teachers to open their first state-run schools. So, teachers returned to where they were at this time last year – on strike.
