Good evening, I’m still reporting on
Jill Stein Would Choose Donald Trump Over Crooked Hillary Clinton
Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on Jill Stein.
Green Party Presidential candidate, Jill Stein says that she would support Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Stein told a CNBC call-in show last week that Clinton is much more likely to ignite a war with Russia that could turn into a nuclear exchange. However, Trump proposes to have a legitimate reset and normalization in relations between the U.S. and Russia.
Stein makes some really good – and surprising – points in this 2-minute clip.
First she points out something that was news to me – that Obama has actually exploded air pollution during his two terms.
However, Stein then wanders into an area where she does not know the facts – the capabilities of our nuclear ICBM strike force.
Wrong! Our ballistic missiles are NOT on a hair-trigger alert. In fact, the entire system is designed from the ground up to NOT to have what’s called “launch-on-warning” capability, despite what some have said in the media.
Launch-on-warning means that as soon as the North American Air Defense Command spots a ballistic missile attack, they would have approximately 15 minutes to launch a nuclear counterstrike before the first incoming missiles – no-doubt aimed at our ICBMs – would strike the first blow.
Our ballistic nuclear capability is designed to be able to withstand a nuclear first-strike, and still have enough survive to be able to deliver a fatal retaliatory blow to any aggressor. US nuclear-tipped missiles are not easy to launch. The system is designed that way to prevent the worst-case scenario of some idiot president accidentally triggering an all-out nuclear war.
And the President does not carry around the so-called nuclear codes in his pocket. The President always has a military officer nearby carrying the so-called “football”. It’s called the football because the president’s role is just one link in a command chain. He or she cannot give a launch command by him or herself.
So, they are not on a hair trigger, and saying so promotes an unnecessary fear in the populace that we are just inches from doomsday at any given time.
This may serve your political purposes, but it is not correct and you should stop using it.
[insert: “Mikhail Gorbachev said…”]
This is wrong also, despite what Mikhail Gorbachev may have said. You were only 12 when the Cuban Missile Crisis hit, and so perhaps you were sheltered from the pivotal danger which culminated on Oct. 22, 1962, when President Kennedy addressed the nation on television.
Thereafter, a significant fraction of the U.S. population became so fearful of nuclear war that they dug fallout shelters in their back yards.
But now, the most interesting part of Stein’s segment:
