Secret US nuclear-powered cruise missile program may have just been revealed by Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday may have revealed to Russia and the world the existence of a secret, US nuclear-powered cruise missile program.

The revelation occurred as President Donald Trump was spending his afternoon on a Twitter spree while vacationing at his Bedminster golf club.

“The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia. We have similar, though more advanced, technology,” Trump admitted. “The Russian ‘Skyfall’ explosion has people worried about the air around the facility, and far beyond. Not good!”

Phil Elliott, a Time magazine reporter, noted it sounded like disclosure of a secret weapons program.

“Did the President just confirm the existence of a missile system with mini-nuclear reactors aboard, eliminating distance limitations, and that can fly low and weave around anti-missile shields?” he asked.

Russia announced seven people were killed in the explosion, Vice News reported.

“The only Russian weapon currently in testing that uses a liquid propulsion system involving nuclear power would be the 9M730 Burevestnik, also known as the SSC-X-9 Skyfall,” Vice explained. “Russian President Vladimir Putin revealed this weapon to the world in a notorious March 2018 presentation that showed a computer visualization of nukes hitting Florida near the Mar-a-Lago. Skyfall has been billed as a nuclear-powered cruise missile that, according to Putin, flies with ‘unlimited range and unpredictable trajectory.’”

“Skyfall is designed to circumvent Western defense systems, which can intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) before they hit their targets by calculating their trajectories. It’s possible that another weapon or test caused the explosion, though Skyfall is currently suspected as a likely culprit,” Vice added.

Trump White House shamelessly uses Fiona Hill’s testimony to paint Democrats as Russian puppets

Published

on

Even though former Trump National Security Council official Fiona Hill angrily denounced President Donald Trump and his allies for spreading Russian conspiracy theories during her impeachment inquiry testimony, the Trump White House is trying to turn her statements against House Democrats.

During her testimony, Hill said that Russia's actions during the 2016 presidential election are still being felt to this day, and they've all been negative for the United States.

"Our nation is being torn apart," she said. "Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined... The Russian government's goal is to weaken our country -- to diminish America's global role and to neutralize a perceived U.S. threat to Russian interests."

GOP ignoring Sondland because they already know Trump is guilty and ‘just don’t care’: conservative columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Bulwark, the founder and editor of the conservative website took at hard slap at both Donald Trump's most avid defenders in Congress and their fellow Republicans who have remained silent after E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified in no uncertain terms that the president was engaged in bribery in his dealings with Ukraine's government.

According to Charlie Sykes, "Yes, there was a quid pro quo. The president demanded it. Everybody knew about it. There was no secret. But we knew all that didn’t we?"

Published

on

A New York Times expose revealed that Fox News paid writers in Macedonia to create click-bait that prompt Americans to fight more about issues.

According to the piece, both the left and right websites created by an international content farm to inflame people enough to click and share content. Conservative Edition News and Liberal Edition News intentionally writes stories with the purpose to infuriate each side for the purpose of generating hate-clicks, response articles and more. Headlines like "Austin sex-ed curriculum teaches kids how to obtain an abortion" and "HuffPost writer considers Christianity 'dangerous'" give right-wing audiences fodder for anger to lash out at their counterparts.
