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.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
