American Intelligence Shocked at Recent Chinese Rocket Test

This is more than a little worrisome.

Published

on

While America has certainly boasted a military force that is unmatched in the world, there are now growing fears that some of our nation’s most worrisome foes are catching up…and perhaps even developing weapons that we can’t stop.

For years now, Russia has been boasting about the invincibility of their hypersonic missile technology, and the fact that they can strap a nuclear warhead to the end of one of these doomsday machines.  These hypersonic rockets are likely too fast for any known defense tech to intercept, making them essentially unstoppable.

And while Vladimir Putin having access to such a weapon is worrisome enough, it now appears as though the CCP has now gotten their hands on some as well – a fact that has simply shocked US intelligence assets. 

China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in a move that caught U.S. intelligenceby surprise, according to a new report.

The missile launched in August and circled the globe before speeding towards its target, which it missed by about two-dozen miles according to three individuals briefed on the intelligence. Two of those individuals said the test showed how far China has progressed on hypersonic weaponry – farther that U.S. officials realized.

“We have now idea how they did this,” one individual told The Financial Times.

And while the Pentagon refused to comment on this individual test itself, the DoD did drop a statement this week that appears to belie the trouble with China’s sudden evolution.

“We have made clear our concerns about the military capabilities China continues to pursue, capabilities that only increase tensions in the region and beyond,” John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesperson, told Fox News. “That is one reason why we hold China as our number one pacing challenge.”

China has been behaving belligerently on the world’s stage in recent years, with a troubling escalation in places like Taiwan over the course of the last few weeks.  Should Beijing truly possess such unstoppable weaponry, the US, (along with the rest of the world), will likely stand up and take notice.

Chris Cuomo Preparing Massive Lawsuit Aimed at Former Employer

But CNN INSTANTLY put the kibosh on it!

Published

on

Things over at CNN have been rough in recent days, and they certainly aren’t smoothing out anytime soon.

The infotainment network is facing an onslaught of trouble of late, thanks largely to the actions of Chris Cuomo – formerly the top draw at the station – thanks to his inappropriate actions in regard to his brother’s sexual assault scandal during his time as the Governor of New York.

Cuomo has since been fired, and a war of words has erupted between he and his former employer.  Just yesterday it was reported that CNN was rebuking Cuomo’s claims that they were aware of the poor behavior of their primetime star.

Today, Cuomo is setting himself up to sue CNN.

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday.

Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

The network was not entertained by the idea.

But CNN has “no intention of paying [Chris] Cuomo a penny,” an insider said.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source added.

Cuomo has also left his SiriusXM radio program this week, leaving the longtime anchor with no audience to complain to.

CNN SHAME: Don Lemon Now Accused of Feeding Information to Jussie Smollett

How long until Lemon is fired?

Published

on

CNN has spent a great deal of time and resources attempting to convince the nation that they are a real news station, but to no avail.

The infotainment corporation has been in a near-constant state of editorial retching, spewing forth a vast number of strange angles and concocted soundbites that sound far more hard-hitting in print than they do when they are over-acted by one of their on-air talking heads.

But worse still is the fact that CNN anchors are now inserting themselves directly into the news, lampooning any claim of credibility that they may have had left.

Chris Cuomo’s attempts to use his media resources to help his brother escape his sex assault scandals cost him his job.

Nowhere are concerns that Don Lemon may soon face similar admonishment on account of how he became a part of Jussie Smollett’s bizarre case.

Jussie Smollett, on trial for allegedly staging a hate crime against himself, testified Monday that he had correspondence with CNN’s Don Lemon during the early parts of the Chicago Police Department’s (CPD) investigation into the incident.

Smollett, 39, testified that he received a text from Lemon, supposedly relaying information that the CPD didn’t believe Smollett’s account of what happened, Fox News’ Matt Finn reported from the Windy City courthouse.

As of this writing, there has been no official word from CNN on the matter.

Lemon is also facing charges of sexually assaulting a man in a bar, in which the television personality is alleged to have shoved his fingers down his pants and then forced the victim to smell them, while making incredibly offensive statements about the man’s sexuality.
