    SEOUL, Oct. 22 (Korea Bizwire) — The Korea Tourism Organization announced yesterday that it had developed three travel packages that allow tourists to visit the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The first package, the “Hwacheon DMZ Mt. Seorak Train Tour” had a total of 80 people leaving Busan and Miryang by train to make stops at the Observation Deck in Hwacheon, the Peace Dam, Bimok Park and other attractions. On the last day of the tour, visitors enjoyed the autumn foliage at the Jujeongol at Mangyeongdae Pavilion in Seoraksan National Park. The second program had 40 retired shipbuilding workers from the...

    In recent months Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and many other prominent Democrats have advocated for violence. They threw open Pandora’s box labeled MOB, and their calls to action are bearing fruit. They happily unleashed the whirlwind, yet refuse to accept responsibility for the destruction they are causing. Ricin laced letters are sent to Senators homes. Shrieking mobs attack innocent drivers and passersby in Portland and elsewhere. GOP candidates and staffers have been physically attacked, leaving one with a concussion. Shrieking mob harpies turned the Senate building into a zone of insanity with their chants, screams, and...

    Panthers safety Eric Reid’s visible beef with Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins in today’s game was indeed for the expected reasons. After Philly collapsed and Carolina took the 21-17 victory, Reid was at first hesitant to explain why he exchanged words with Jenkins during the pregame coin toss, but then he kind of explained it anyway.

  • German Far-Right Politician Resigns after being Photographed on 'Hitler Pilgrimage' of Nazi sites

    RT ^ | 20 Oct 2018
    An Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician got himself in hot water over photos of his “pilgrimage” to Hitler-related sites. The politician was reportedly pictured with a candle in front of Hitler’s birthplace in the Austrian town of Brannau am Inn. He was also pictured near the Berchtesgaden Alpine retreat of the Fuhrer, as well as posing near swastikas and SS rune-bearing banners. While the scandalous pictures have not been released, the AfD acknowledged their existence. “The person concerned was clearly reminded by the state board that such incidents are unacceptable and incompatible with AfD membership,” Torben Braga, a party spokesman,...

    President Donald Trump's administration is considering a policy that would eliminate transgender recognition by requiring individuals to be defined as male or female based on their genitalia at birth, according to a government memo obtained by the New York Times. The report has caused an uproar on social media Sunday (Oct. 21). The Department of Health and Human Services is aiming to establish a uniform definition of gender, determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable," the report says. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable...

    Since Donald Trump won the presidency, he has presided over both one the most tumultuous political times in recent memory, as well as the best economy the country has seen since well before the financial crisis. Consumer and small business confidence is up — but so are both the national debt and budget deficit. The chart below, using mostly data compiled by Goldman Sachs, quantifies just how much things changed from the days just before the election in November 2016 through September 2018. Of course, the stock market has weakened in October, which has been its historically most volatile month....

    “I just started to think about all the privilege I’ve benefited from in this industry, specifically — being a Jew is a bonus, being a girl as comedian when I was coming up. I had every advantage. Every door opened for me,” she said of the inspiration for the project. “When I started to look around at people that don’t have as successful of a career or are working twice as hard to achieve the same things, I started to feel very gross about myself. On a very fundamental level, I wanted to explore it further … [starting] with my...

    Reps. Peter King and Adam Schiff join ABC's 'This Week' to discuss the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Schiff suggested that Congress "ought to determine whether financial motives are motiving the president and the first family" when it comes to U.S.-Saudi policy. "This is the very problem with the president not releasing his tax returns," Schiff said.

    Few artists can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter James Damiano. Twenty-two years ago James Damiano began an odyssey that led him into a legal maelstrom with Bob Dylan that, to this day, fascinates the greatest of intellectual minds. As the curtain rises on the stage of deceit we learn that CBS used songs and lyrics for international recording artist, Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan's name is credited to the songs. One of those songs is nominated for a Grammy as best rock song of the year. Ironically the title of that song is Dignity....

    After huffing about Trump thanking Mexico for stopping the caravan of 3,000 - 4,000 “migrants”, White House correspondent Tara Palmeri asserted Trump was blaming Democrats with no evidence. “Weeks away from the midterms, Trump in Elko, Nevada rallying for Republicans in tight races and sharpening his attacks; blaming the Democrats without any proof for the crisis on the border,” she said.

    <p>This week Democratic candidate for the Texas US Senate Beto O'Rourke got a major boost when former Mexican President Vicente Fox endorsed him over his GOP rival Sen. Ted Cruz. Fox pleaded with Texas voters to back O'Rourke, saying "it's the only way to ensure that the f*cking wall is never built. The path must remain open for Mexicans to enter Texas and reverse the land-grab perpetrated in 1836."</p>

    October 21 is Trafalgar Day, the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and the death of England's greatest naval hero, Admiral Horatio Nelson, on 21 October 1805. Fought off the southwest coast of Spain, Trafalgar was the greatest naval victory of the Napoleonic wars and essentially destroyed the sea power of France in a single engagement. Nelson and the British fleet had been blockading the French and Spanish fleet under Villeneuve in Cadiz after pursuing it to the Caribbean and back. When Villeneuve finally emerged to give battle, Nelson, depending on the superior seamanship and fighting skill of his "band...

    No American should be confused or undecided this November. If America falls, the world will fall with it With all that is going on today in our social and political culture, especially the audacious unmasking of what liberals and the Democrat Party are now demanding, it would not be difficult to imagine an America ruled by the Left, the modern liberal, the modern Democrat Party. I say modern liberal because it is a far cry from the classic liberal of the forgotten past. The classic liberal would advocate Constitutional Republicanism, a limited government with basic inalienable rights entrusted upon its...

    Hate is the only real message the Democrats want to convey Over the next several weeks, Americans will be going to the polls in the most eagerly anticipated and consequential midterm election in our nation’s history. Voters will decide whether to continue the President’s agenda which includes cutting regulations and taxes, boosting our military, renegotiating our trade deals, and focusing on border security. This agenda has produced incredible economic results in less than two years. This week, the World Economic Forum rated the United States as the most competitive economy among the 140 countries ranked. This is the first time...

    Affirmative action, quotas, and other forms of government-approved and academia-sanctioned racial discrimination do not make everyone “equal” or “diverse,” it just suppresses everyone A social media post captured my attention. A millennial was boasting about a recent home purchase. Nothing out of the ordinary, home ownership is a good thing and people take pride in owning their own place, private property is the bedrock of capitalism and freedom. This millennial was buying in one of the country’s most expensive real estate markets. While boasting about a “privileged” status of people who could afford to buy homes because they had inherited...

    With mainstream and social media as their cheerleaders and with Facebook and Twitter followers as phony as the Fake News they propagate, they are now dictating that you are not allowed to be seen in public as a Republican/Conservative It’s late in the day and a loud and ugly mob mentality is utterly dominating midterm elections.

    It was inevitable. First, “CNN's Cuomo: Trump Looked Like He Was Thinking Racist Thoughts While Talking To Kanye West” and then “NBC’s John Harwood says that President Donald Tump has added to his secret lexicon of racist dog whistles – the new addition is ‘mob.’” Or as Ed Driscoll says, if you can hear the dog whistle, you’re the dog.Anyway, as a result of the recent spate of “wokeness” concerning dog-whistle racist behavior the anti-racist statue removal program has been resumed. We simply must destroy all old white guy symbols of rational thought, as it has been deemed not only...
