Sure looks like the outgoing Administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration (@NNSANews ) retweeted, then deleted, a lot of questionable tweets about the election. A short thread.
What follows are many deleted retweets from @LGordonHagerty, which is apparently personal account of outgoing @LGHNNSA -- courtesy of the @internetarchive. These were things others said rhat she retweeted, then deleted.
You have to click through to see the original tweets -- which, again, she was retweeting. You tell me if you want this person overseeing the nation's nuclear stockpile.
It all started innocently enough on election day. She retweeted something by Ivanka Trump. But then again, it always starts so innocently, doesn't it?
The she retweeted some complaints about vandalized Trump signs in Maine. People shouldn't vandalize signs.
Things got weirder on November 4. She retweeted some joy that Susan Collins won reelection in Maine, which ... ok.
But she also retweeted a "joke" about a "Miracle: Ballot Counter Turns 5 Biden Votes Into 5,000."
And then she went off the rails. She retweeted a guy who says about the election: "It is theft. They are stealing it."
This guy is a real piece of work. Just to give you a sense of her media diet -- the person responsible for the nation's nuclear stockpile -- she's retweeeting stuff from a guy also tweets stuff like this. I would describe him as QAnon-adjacent.
And last, but certainly not least, she retweeted some stuff about fighting with Trump to the bitter end, which is only embarrassing because the account is @catturd2. I don't know about "Cat Turd 1" and, frankly, I don't want to.
Anyway, she's now resigned -- although reportedly for other reasons. Still, these retweets are not the sign of someone with a firm grasp on reality. It will be good to have someone else overseeing the nation's nuclear stockpile.
I think these are all of them, but I may have missed a few. Will update if necessary. /END

North Korea's new ICBM is much larger than the Hwasong-15 ICBM (~2 m in diameter). Here are two stills from the parade that help illustrate the difference.
The truck ("transporter-erector-launcher" or TEL) is new. In December, @kyodo_english reported that Kim "ordered the mass production of vehicles used for transporting and launching missiles including [ICBMs]" using imported parts. Looks like it worked.…
@DaveSchmerler and I previously documented the expansion of the March 16 Factory for producing these vehicles.…

I see the @THEHermanCain account is being upbeat about Trump's health. The tweets this account issued about Herman Cain's illness are a useful reference point, both describing one person's course of treatment, as well as public messaging about it. Thread.
Cain tested positive on June 29, and was hospitalized a few days later on July 1. He was reported to be resting comfortably and was not on a respirator.
The account continued to be very upbeat about Cain's condition, stating that he was "making progress" on July 5.

He's made ten appearances in the last thirty days, most recently on August 19. A list of Kim Jong Un's act...
As best I can tell, Chang Song-min, who claimed Kim was in a coma in April, is doubling down on that claim.…

For completeness: Russia's statement rejecting the novel US idea that is still a JCPOA participant even though it terminated its participation.

When you terminate your participation in an agreement only to later realize that you wanted to retain one of your rights as a participant. ImageImage
It’s so simple! The US is a “participating state that terminated its participation.”
Bolton was absolutely clear when the US terminated its participation that the the US was forswearing the use of snapback in UNSCR 2231 because it was "out of the deal." Image

Just a little context on these two images. This is a bit of trolling, which is pretty normal for Billingslea who doesn't have much else to do these days. At least he's wearing a mask.
The object is a Mk 41 vertical launch system (VLS) rigged up like the one used for the ground-launched Tomahawk missile test flight to >500 km in August 2019. There is a placard with images of that test just to make sure you get the message.
This is probably Lockheed Martin's plant in Middle River, MD, which makes the Mk 41 VLS. Here's a picture of the ribbon-cutting in 2016.… Image
