WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Trump’s jet was nearly hit by what appeared to be a small drone as it approached an airbase near Washington on Sunday night, according to several people aboard Air Force One, The Independent reported. The device, which was yellow and black and shaped like a cross, was off the right side of the plane. It was seen by several passengers on the jet, shortly before it touched down at 5:54 p.m. at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

TEXAS: Beirut Anti-Disinfo

Published 2020-08-18 12:38:43 by Russell Bentley in Beirut, Headline-News, Lebanon, Mena

In these days of gaslighting, misinformation, disinformation and downright bullshit, the fevered postulations of some self-styled “pundits” about a secret weapon or mini-nuke being used in the Beirut blast are as irritating as they are inaccurate and improbable. That the US and or Israel are responsible for the detonation is indeed, highly likely, but yet to be proven, and not the point in question.
