Danger Ahead! The Runaway Tractor Trailer Rig – Trump’s Presidency

by Richard Cameron Trump’s Runaway Presidency The standard metaphor for anything that is going “south”, that is to say, badly wrong, is a speeding train hopping the rails – an impending train wreck. Since it is so overworked and such a cliché, perhaps we should opt for another analogy to the Donald Trump presidency – the runaway semi-tractor trailer. In this one, the president is the owner-operator of the bigly rig and the rig is the Office of the Presidency and the contents of the trailer is the stability and…

Trump Has Trapped Himself In A Corner Over North Korea

by Tony Wyman When President Trump told the world that any further threatening acts by North Korea would be met by “fire and fury like the world has never seen,” he backed himself into a corner from which he has no escape without either losing credibility or engaging in a war that the American people don’t want to fight. The North Koreans, recognizing President Trump’s blunder, immediately responded with detailed plans to launch four missiles over Japan to strike American military bases in Guam, a U.S. territory. “As already clarified,…

by Oletta Branstiter Schoolyard Bullies The U.S. President and the North Korean President are engaging in a playground competition to compare the size of their respective “missiles”, endangering the entire globe.

North Korea’s ICBM Launch – Our Reaction, Risks And Russia’s Alternate Facts

by Richard Cameron The North Korean regime of Kim Jong Un sent a message on Independence Day to the United States and our allies in the North Pacific Ocean, that the doomsday clock  is ticking at a much faster clip. The North Koreans have been engineering missiles of both short and intermediate ranges and we’ve seen them tested, with some successes and failures over the past three decades. But up until the 4th of July, no one had seen even a test launch of a Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) coming…

by Richard Cameron Recently, I wrote a report on how Kim Jong-un’s missile tests have been thwarted by the Pentagon and the NSA’s (National Security Agency) coordinating and deploying “left of launch” tactics from the United States Cyber Command (USCyberCom). Absent any other plausible explanation, it appears that our cyber warfare warriors have landed another punch against Kim’s missile program after a North Korean missile test in South Pyeongan province, north of Pyongyang on Friday was unsuccessful. It disintegrated after only reaching an altitude of 44 miles (71km), not even…
