MUST WATCH: Russians Intercept American Plane in CLOSE Call

You have to see this to believe it!

Tensions between the United States and Russia have been high in recent months, thanks to some parting shots taken at Vladimir Putin in the waning days of the Obama administration.

Obama, who ascribes to the theory that the Russian government may have played a role in the 2016 election of President Donald Trump, blasted the Kremlin in his final days in office, sending a number of Russian diplomats packing from the United States.  This may very well have been the tip-off of a New Cold War, as evidenced by the bizarrely aggressive behavior of Russian military forces in the aftermath of the decision.

Just this week, one such harrowing encounter was caught on film.

A US Navy reconnaissance aircraft flying in international airspace over the Black Sea was intercepted by a Russian fighter jet Monday in an unsafe and unprofessional manner, according to three US defense officials and a statement from the Navy.

During an encounter that lasted a total of 25 minutes, the Russian SU-27 jet passed directly in front of the US EP-3 aircraft at a high speed, the officials said. The US crew reported turbulence following that initial interaction in which the direct pass occurred.

The SU-27 then made a second pass of the US plane and applied its afterburner while conducting a banking maneuver, which is believed to have caused a vibration that was experienced by the American crew.

“This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-27 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft, which put our pilots and crew at risk. The intercepting SU-27 made an additional pass, closing with the EP-3 and applying its afterburner while conducting a banking turn away. The crew of the EP-3 reported turbulence following the first interaction, and vibrations from the second,” according to a statement from the US Navy.

The close call was even more frightening on tape.

There has been no word yet of what retaliation awaits the Russians, but the US is sure to respond accordingly.

Dr. Fauci Refuses to Rule Out Lockdowns as Omicron Spreads

But have Americans begun to see Fauci as the “boy who cried wolf”?

Published

Just in time for the Christmas holiday, Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning that Americans should be ready, willing, and able to lock themselves down once more.

Fauci, who seems to get less popular with Americans by the week, has begun to sound the alarm after the latest “omicron” variant of COVID-19 has begun to mutate and spread out of South Africa.

From a recent appearance on ABC:

Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “Should we expect to be seeing more lockdowns again, new lockdowns, more mandates?”

Fauci said, “I don’t know, George, it’s really too early to say. We just really need to, as I said so often, prepare for the worst. It may not be we’ll have to go the route people are saying. We don’t know a lot about this virus. So we want to prepare as best we can, but it may turn out this preparation, although important, may not necessarily push us to the next level.”

And then…

He continued, “People talking about lockdowns, people talking about that, let’s see what the information we’re getting in real time tells us. We’ll make decisions based on the science and the evidence the way we always do. But you want to be prepared to do anything and everything. That’s the reason why we’re paying such close attention to this and why we’re all over it.”

Fauci has earned himself the nickname “Dr. Doom” over the course of the least several years, as his predictions for the pandemic continue to err on the side of abject horror and viral catastrophe.

This latest prediction certainly falls into this category, but many Americans have begun to write Fauci off, citing the “boy who cried wolf” principle.

Vladimir Putin Begins Mass Production of Unstoppable Nuclear Rockets

These missiles are little more than overcompensation, similar to when men with little confidence by a sports car to show off.

Published

In a move that reeks of overcompensation in the same way that a loud exhaust on a 4-cylinder car does, Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin is now ramping up production on a bit of nuclear overkill meant to have the rest of the world shaking in their boots.

Putin, after being caught red-handed attempting, (and failing), to influence American politics via some sort of army of cyber-trolls, is now pouring Russian resources into amassing a cadre of “unstoppable” hypersonic missiles.

MASS production of Russia’s terrifying Zircon hypersonic missile has begun, as tensions with the West mount.

The Kremlin boasts that the 6670mph weapon – which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead – is “unstoppable”.

The go-ahead for full-scale production of Zircon at a top-secret plant near Moscow follows recent successful tests of the missile.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November. A month earlier the Zircon was fired from a submarine for the first time. Vladimir Putin has ordered the Zircon missile to be deployed next year by the Russian Navy boasting that it is “truly unparalleled … in the world”. And while this all may sound very frightening, the move is likely just another bit of puffery from Putin. The US and Russia have long had a policy of “mutually assured destruction”, in which the two nations would reciprocate any nuclear strike against them with a full emptying of their entire nuclear arsenal.  Even if Putin managed to get one of these “unstoppable” devices airborne in the direction of the United States, it would be a death sentence for everyone from Moscow to Mongolia.
