Trump Responds To Claims He Suggested Using Nukes To Stop Hurricanes

More mainstream media nonsense.

Published

The news media just loves to take anything and everything President Trump says and turn it into some sort of ridiculous, nonsensical statement designed to make him look insane and incompetent.

The latest such ploy has to do with the MSM saying Trump suggested using nuclear weapons as a means of thwarting hurricanes from making landfall in the United States.

Trump has fired back, stating this, like so much else from the mainstream media, is fake news.

Axios reported Sunday, citing anonymous sources, that Trump has proposed multiple times to senior national security officials that they explore the possibility of using nuclear weapons to prevent hurricanes from making landfall over U.S. soil.

“They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?” one source, paraphrasing the president, claimed Trump said during a hurricane briefing at the White House.

A second example being used by the media is from a recording allegedly made in 2017 during the National Security Council memorandum, where the president allegedly floated the idea of using bombs against hurricanes, though he didn’t specifically mention nukes.

The thing to keep in mind here is that the whole concept of using nuclear weapons against hurricanes is not something that Trump cooked up all by himself. The idea itself first popped on the scene in the mid-20th century, coined by a government scientist.

The idea has gained a lot of popularity over the years, prompting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association to come out and issue explanations for why it’s a horrible idea to use this particular strategy.

So how did Trump respond?

Still, White House officials who spoke with Axios said that Trump did, in fact, make the suggestion — but it should not be cause for concern.

“His objective is not bad,” one official said. “His goal — to keep a catastrophic hurricane from hitting the mainland — is not bad.”

“For me, alarm bells weren’t going off when I heard about it, but I did think somebody is going to use this to feed into ‘the president is crazy’ narrative,” another official told Axios.

Let’s just say that, for the most part, using nuclear weapons for anything is pretty much a bad idea and thus to be avoided if possible.

That should go without saying, but in today’s world, it’s better to cover all your bases.

Save conservative media!

Biden At Final Debate: Nobody Lost Their Private Health Insurance Under Obamacare

Fact check: yeah, he lied.

We all know that Barack Obama promised health insurance would drop by $2500. He lied. He knew he was lying, as did Congressional Democrats and the MSM. They just didn’t care. All that mattered was keeping power. Period. At Thursday’s final debate between President Trump and Joe Biden, the former VP repeated the lie. He must’ve thought people wouldn’t notice. From Breitbart: During the presidential debate, Biden said he supports Americans’ access to private health insurance, asserting his public option plan would and Obamacare never forced Americans to lose their health insurance. Biden said, “I support private insurance; that’s why not one single person with private insurance would lose their insurance under my plan, nor did they under Obamacare. They did not lose their insurance unless they chose they wanted to go to something else.” In 2019, Biden said illegal aliens deserve to be taken care of by the American taxpayer. This is what he believes is a winning strategy, huh? From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said during a campaign stop in California on Wednesday that the United States has an “obligation” to give healthcare to illegal aliens. Biden noted, “I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for. That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.” Biden dismissed the notion that many illegal aliens come into the United States illegally through the southern border despite the fact that immigration arrests along the border are at a 12-year high.

Hmm. Doesn’t sound right.

Kamala Harris is clearly spending too much time around Joe Biden. The two of them in charge of the Executive Branch would make America a laughingstock. Sound off in the comment section: how many Trump/Pence flags and signs do you see on a daily basis compared to Biden/Harris? Kamala’s latest video proves what a disaster she’d be as VP. WATCH: https://twitter.com/Ami_Magazine/status/1319241785374351361 Forget all the gaffes, brain freezes and racist quotes over the decades – at least for a minute. The worst thing Joe has ever done was choose radically Harris to be his running mate. Debatable or what? Check this out, via Daily Caller: MINNEAPOLIS — A bail fund promoted by Sen. Kamala Harris helped a man accused of sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl get out of jail in July, according to court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) also helped post bail in August for a man accused of assaulting a 71-year-old woman as he burglarized her home, court documents show. One week after his release the man was found to be in violation of his bail. The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office told the DCNF on Wednesday there is still an active felony warrant out for that man’s arrest. Kamala’s tweet from June… https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1267555018128965643 MORE: Minnesota prosecutors provided graphic details of [Timothy Wayne] Columbus’s alleged sexual assault of the eight-year-old girl in her mother’s home, records reviewed by the DCNF show. “Victim stated ‘Tim’ laid her on the couch and held her down as he unbuckled his pants and pulled down her pants. Victim stated he then ‘put his thing inside me,’” the statement of probable cause read. Considering Biden isn’t exactly all there upstairs, there’s a decent chance Kamala could play a bigger role than most VP’s – if they’re elected…
