As the creeping tumult of the 2020 election nears, many Americans are finding themselves riddled with anxiety and worry.

Our nation is hotly divided in this day and age, all thanks to the incendiary rhetoric and purposeful anger of the mainstream media.  We must always remember that television “news” outlets have one job and one job only; to make sure you are invested emotionally in what they are showing you, for the sake of making sure you stick around through the commercial break.  That way, Geico and other advertisers can see a decent return on their advertising buys.

If we don’t find ourselves incensed, outraged, or despondent over the “news”, the entertainment value drops off and guys like Geico start pulling their ads.

In summary; it’s the mainstream media’s job to divide us, and they’ve unfortunately perfected the routine.

But, in fairness, the MSM’s rush to rile us up does get them into trouble from time to time, and it may cost them beaucoup bucks to clean up their mess…thanks to Don Blankenship.

Failed Republican Senate candidate Don Blankenship filed a massive defamation lawsuit on Thursday against dozens of news outlets and media personalities for referring to him as a “felon” during his 2018 run in the West Virginia primary.

While Blankenship, the former CEO of Massey Energy, spent a year in federal prison after a misdemeanor conviction for conspiring to violate safety regulations prior to a deadly mining disaster in 2010, he was acquitted of all felony charges.

Blankenship was going for broke during his campaign, and he has only ratcheted up the intensity through his lawsuit.

Blankenship — whose campaign rose to national prominence after he ran an ad dubbing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “Cocaine Mitch” and called Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao‘s father a “wealthy Chinaperson” — is seeking over $12 billion in damages in the lawsuit filed in Mingo County, West Virginia Circuit Court.

Blankenship’s lawyer laid it out straight for the world as well.

“Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and the other defendants in this case, when they represent themselves as a news outlet or news source, the public’s reasonable expectation is that they are indeed a ‘credible’ news outlet,” Blankenship’s attorney Eric Early, a failed GOP candidate for California attorney general, said in a statement to Mediaite. “It’s beyond wrong when they lie about facts that are easily ‘google-ible.’ These news outlets are going to have to decide at some point whether they are actual news or entertainment channels.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
