The Chinese armed forces now have more intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launchers than the US does, the US military warned recently. But it noted that the US still has a nuclear edge over its great power rival.
Gen. Anthony Cotton, commander of the US Strategic Command, sent memos to both the Senate and House Armed Services Committees in late January detailing the status of China's ICBM activities as of October 2022.
"The number of land-based fixed and mobile ICBM launchers in China exceeds the number of ICBM launchers in the United States," Cotton wrote in letters sent to the respective committees on January 26, letters obtained by Insider. US Strategic Command — or STRATCOM — is responsible for nuclear operations, command, control, and communications.
Cotton added that the number of ICBMs in China's active inventory "has not exceeded the number of ICBM in the active inventory of the United States." He also said that the "number of nuclear warheads equipped on such missiles of China has not exceeded the number of nuclear warheads equipped on such missiles of the United States."
The second hearing for the Oversight Committee in the 118th Congress on Tuesday zeroed-in on handling of migration at the southern border – it was the second hearing focusing on the migration crisis, coming just one week after the Judiciary hearing on the same topic.
Chairman James Comer of Kentucky defended the hearing, noting that the powerful Oversight Committee's job is to make sure Congress is addressing issues properly, and that the hearing Tuesday is the first time the panel is hearing from government workers responsible for securing the border.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is demanding increased “surveillance” powers to track the public and monitor “the health of people, animals, and ecosystems.”
The unelected United Nations health agency argues that it needs new powers to track the public to handle “disease control” so governments can prepare in the event of another pandemic.
The WHO calls for new tracking powers in the latest zero draft of its international pandemic treaty.
As Slay News has previously reported, the treaty will award the WHO with sweeping global powers if passed.
Elsewhere in the treaty is WHO’s new plan to censor so-called “misinformation” and “disinformation” online.
Just 39 percent of Americans adults believe the state of the union is strong before President Joe Biden likely declares it so during Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
According to Monmouth polling from Monday, less than four in ten Americans say the state of the union is strong, while fifty-eight percent say it is not strong.
Among those who doubt the union’s strength, 32 percent say the union is not too strong and 26 percent deem it not at all strong.
Just seven percent claim it is very strong. Thirty-two percent allege it is somewhat strong.
The world just witnessed a top-performing NFL athlete drop on live television, but not one news outlet is questioning if it was linked to the COVID gene therapy shot, and they won’t. They won’t because they’re afraid of the repercussions of the Deep State.
The same people that infiltrated all the social media companies and the same people who deplatformed people who questioned the COVID narrative are now blaming a surge of heart attack deaths on those who stayed in their homes and didn’t get their medicines. They’re saying it’s the people’s fault for not getting their heart medicine when they were locked down in their homes.
Their blame game loses ground because they say the surge of deaths increased in the Spring of 2022, right in the midst of millions getting jabbed or boosted. They’re being boosted right into the grave.
You can shoot up street heroin and go about your day without a problem in most instances, but if you consume an egg you may find that your brain hemorrhages, your heart suddenly stops beating, or your face becomes paralyzed, according to a stunning warning issued by scientists working on behalf of the global elite.
Scientists are now warning the public that consuming eggs could cause blood clots, strokes and heart attacks.
In what appears to be another example of the global elite attempting to distract the public from the real cause of the surge in heart problems since the jab rollout, scientists now want us to believe that a nutrient found in eggs increases the risk of blood clotting.
The idea that eggs, which are a highly nutritious protein source and a staple in people’s diets around the world, could be the source of the spike in sudden cardiac arrests and strokes is ridiculous enough to be dismissed without prejudice. But when you dig a little deeper into what the scientists wants us to believe, it gets even more ridiculous.
The study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic, suggested that choline makes the blood more prone to clotting and you should stop eating eggs immediately. There is just one problem. Eggs have been consumed by almost every culture for thousands of years and nobody has noticed this before. Actually, there is another problem. Choline is sold in over-the-counter dietary supplements and is deemed an essential nutrient that is widely recommended for optimal health.
The death toll from a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and multiple aftershocks in Turkey and Syria rose to more than 5,000 on Tuesday as more bodies were pulled from the rubble of collapsed buildings.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the total number of deaths in Turkey had risen to 3,549 people. Turkey’s Vice President Fuat Oktay had said earlier that 20,534 people were injured.
That brought the number of people killed to 5,151, with another 1,602 people confirmed dead on the Syrian side of the border.
The death toll across Turkey and Syria has surpassed 3,000 people and could spark a humanitarian crisis in that area of the world, according to NYTimes.
About 10,000 rescuers had been dispersed across southeast Turkey by late Monday. The Turkish health minister said as many as 3,000 buildings have collapsed.
CNN reported the total number injured in Turkey and Syria has climbed to 13,600. That number will likely rise.
NYT detailed on a map where all the large quakes struck earlier.
ChatGPT debuted in November 2022, garnering worldwide attention almost instantaneously. The artificial intelligence is capable of answering questions on anything from historical facts to generating computer code, and has dazzled the world, sparking a wave of AI investment. Now users have found a way to tap into its dark side, using coercive methods to force the AI to violate its own rules and provide users the content — whatever content — they want.
CBS has deleted its Grammy Awards tweet proclaiming “we are ready to worship” pop star Sam Smith’s Satan-themed performance after the post provoked widespread ridicule and accusations that the left-wing network engages in Satan worship.
On Sunday afternoon, Sam Smith tweeted rehearsal photos for what was eventually revealed to be a fire-and-brimstone-themed performance of his single “Unholy,” a collaboration with male-to-female transgender singer-songwriter Kim Petras.
“This is going to be SPECIAL,” Smith tweeted.
CBS replied: “…you can say that again. We are ready to worship!”

It remains unclear when CBS deleted the tweet but the post was gone by Monday.
The transgenic “food” industry in the United States faces a major blow as Mexico readies to enact a new law banning all United States imports of genetically modified (GMO) corn.
Since most U.S. corn is genetically engineered, the American farmers who grow it will no longer have Mexico as a customer – which could decimate their businesses, in some cases.
Describing the situation as “the most catastrophic thing to happen to corn farmers,” Fox Business ran a segment on the move, which could force American corn farmers to switch to non-GMO or organic corn crops instead – which would be good for everyone.
Up until now, Mexico was the largest buyer of American corn. Our neighbors to the south have purchased more than $10 billion worth of corn, nearly all of which is patented and owned by biotechnology companies.
As the border crisis continues to spiral out of control, southern state lawmakers keep ripping the federal government for offering no assistance.
Critics claim the crisis is not only a massive humanitarian issue, but it’s also a bona fide national security risk. On top of that, there’s the financial impact, which is felt especially by border states.
That’s why Texas Republicans are now demanding “reparations” from D.C.
Several GOP members in the Lone Star State introduced two bills this week, which would allow border communities to recoup some of the money they’ve spent defending the border on their own terms.
These lawmakers say the towns in question are spending billions to keep their people safe, while the Biden administration simply ignores the entire situation.
Democrats were fine with ignoring the exploding border crisis until Florida Gov. Don DeSantis got involved. The Republican shook up the liberal establishment when he few fifty illegals to Martha’s Vineyard.
The elite liberals who lived on the rich island exposed their hypocrisy when they quickly bused the migrants off the island.
Biden and his Democrats had to scramble to cover their tracks after that. But the damage was done. More Americans are demanding answers to Biden’s open border as millions of illegals flood the country.
And Democrats should be getting even more worried… because DeSantis is just getting started.
Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration stripped the liquor license of an Orlando venue on Friday for hosting a grotesquely sexual drag queen show with children in attendance.
The six-count complaint filed by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) accuses the Orlando Philharmonic Plaza Foundation of violating state law by exposing minors to sexual acts and “lewd and lascivious exhibitions.”
The DBPR charged the company with knowingly allowing performers to simulate sex acts, expose prosthetic genitalia and breasts, and display obscene videos in front of children at the December 28 show, called “A Drag Queen Christmas.”
Drag queens reportedly simulated masturbation, oral sex, and abortion and performed vulgar renditions of children’s Christmas songs, including “Screwdolph the Red-Nippled Reindeer.”
