NH #432: Nuclear Launch Codes + Impeachment Inquiry = ??? Garrett Graff, author, Raven Rock, on Govt’s Secret Plan to Survive while the Rest Of Us Die

Nuclear Launch Codes, referred to as the Nuclear Football, follow the president everywhere, carried by a military attache and stashed in a briefcase (pictured) making it possible for him to launch a nuclear strike at any country at any time. Yes, even now. Is there any recourse to this insanity, should Trump decide to go rogue?

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Nuclear Launch Codes are in the hands of the president, under his sole authority to launch a nuclear bomb strike anywhere in the world. Is there any recourse? Garrett Graff, author of RAVEN ROCK: The Story of the US Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself while the Rest of Us Die, explains the workings of the so-called “nuclear football” which contains the nuclear bomb launch codes, plus the survival plan for our “leaders” that lets them (maybe) survive while the rest of the world dies. Quite a pertinent discussion to have in this era of impeachment inquiry, don’t you think?

You don’t need a fireball to commit nuclear war; just releasing vast quantities of “depleted” uranium (which is still plenty lethal) will destroy your enemies over generations.
