  • In a Second Cuban Missile Crisis, Catastrophe Was Averted… For Now

    While most of the US press was totally fixated on attaching the labels of racist, bigot, and white supremacist to the President, it totally missed one of the biggest stories in a generation—a nuclear war with North Korea was averted.The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred during the 13 days from October 16th to the 28th of 1962. President Kennedy had recently gained solid evidence that the Soviet Union had placed both nuclear-armed bombers as well as nuclear-armed ballistic missiles in Cuba. And even though the US had deployed many more nuclear missiles in Italy and Turkey, capable of annihilating Moscow and...
  • North Korea: How Christians survive in the world's most anti-Christian nation

    For 16 years, North Korea has been ranked the “most oppressive place in the world for Christians,” and this week the U.S. State Department re-asserted it as one of the world’s worst religious persecutors – torturing and executing those even suspected of worshipping God. But that still hasn’t stopped an estimated 36 percent of the population – around 9 million – from practicing Christianity. “Life is extremely difficult for all North Koreans, but Christians face an even tougher road,” Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern told Fox News. “Christians are accused of being imperialists seeking to overthrow the government...
  • U.S. Military Will Conduct‘A Major Military Exercise’ On Korean Peninsula (Trunc)

    FULL TITLE: The U.S. Military Will Be Conducting ‘A Major Military Exercise’ On The Korean Peninsula During The Solar Eclipse On August 21st, approximately 25,000 U.S. troops will join “tens of thousands” from the South Korean military to conduct a “major military exercise” that is already triggering threats from North Korea. Considering the fact that any sort of provocation could cause a nuclear war to erupt on the Korean peninsula, is this really a wise thing to do? The more research that I do on this upcoming solar eclipse, the stranger things become. When I first started hearing about this...

    President Donald Trump’s decision to part ways with Steve Bannon can be understood as an effort to save his presidency after Charlottesville. It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger. ... Bannon was not just Trump’s master strategist, the man who turned a failing campaign around in August 2016 and led one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in political history. He was also the conservative spine of the administration. His infamous whiteboard in the West Wing listed the promises Trump had made to the voters,...

    Looks like the country's top diplomat and her headline-grabbing hubby have reached a détente while on a romantic Bermuda vacation yesterday. The laid-back Clintons looked like any other happily married couple outside the Cambridge Beaches resort, where they are staying for a brief vacation. The getaway comes less than two weeks after a feisty Secretary of State Hillary, during a visit to the Congo, lashed out at a university student who she thought had asked her Bill's opinion on an international issue. And on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows when she skipped a meeting between President Obama and Bill Clinton...

    Conservative talk radio host Dennis Prager received a standing ovation from a near-capacity crowd the moment he walked on the stage Wednesday evening to conduct the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra at Walt Disney Concert Hall. The audience was not only applauding the music, but the principle of freedom of expression, after several left-wing members of the orchestra had attempted to organize a boycott of the event by the musicians and by the public. A letter circulated by the boycotters exhorted: “Please urge your friends to not attend this concert, which helps normalize bigotry in our community.” One boycotter, violinist and...

    One of the activists who toppled a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., on Monday night is a member of an extreme leftist group that supports the totalitarian regime in North Korea and wants to abolish capitalism. Taqiyah Thompson, a student at North Carolina Central University, was arrested Tuesday following a press conference in which she defended the actions of the demonstrators and equated police officers to Confederate soldiers and Ku Klux Klan members. “I did the right thing,” she said. “Everyone who was there — the people did the right thing. The people will continue to keep making the right...

But then again according to these Alt-Left AntiFa stenographers what isn’t? To be effective all current events must happen in a vacuum. That way the spinmeisters can work their editorial magic and make everything fit their narrative.

    The Workers World Party is taking to New York City for a two-day conference to show how to spread socialism around the nation and world, and to explain why the time is ripe for such expansion. The event, titled “Putting Socialist Revolution on the Table,” kicks off Saturday at the Shabazz Center, and includes panel discussions on Black Lives Matter, with an emphasis on women and LGBT leadership; how to be a revolutionary; and on dispelling myths about China’s socialism. It also includes the discussion topic “fighting imperialism means building internationalism,” according to an advertisement sent out by the...

    With things heating up in the Pacific northeast, people are wondering what a potential war with North Korea means’ in the prophetic picture. Let me be upfront and state that I believe a war with North Korea will transpire, and that they are about to experience fundamental regime change. Let me be clear in saying that the North Korean regime under Kim Jong Un (KJU) will collapse through divine action. Now God may use the military, diplomatic, or economic means, but it will happen because He allows it. As a result, the Gospel will go into North Korea even if...

    DURHAM, N.C. — A North Carolina Central University student was arrested Tuesday in connection with a Monday night protest in which a Confederate statue in front of Durham County's former courthouse was pulled down. Takiyah Fatima Thompson, 22, was charged with participation in a riot ... Thompson was given $10,000 unsecured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning. Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews said Tuesday that his deputies were working to identify others involved in the incident and plan to pursue felony charges against them. Some protest organizers defended their actions Tuesday, calling the monument a symbol...

    DW, Germany ^ | Rodion Ebbighausen | 14.08.2017
    The German cruise missile Taurus KEPD-350 has a lot of demand in South Korea. The nearly 1,000-kilogram high-tech weapon made by an eponymous German firm, Taurus Systems, has a range of almost 500 kilometers. It has been specifically designed to penetrate highly capable air defense systems in low-altitude flight. The weapon is capable of both hitting deep underground bunkers as well as destroying large surface areas. South Korea's significance for Taurus, based in Germany's Bavaria state, is seen by the fact that the company set up a representative office in Seoul in 2014. In October 2016, 177 cruise missiles were...

    "Kim Jong-un blinked and backed off some of his threats. So is it possible that some of the President’s amped up rhetoric worked?" That was John Berman today at CNN's Newsroom blurting out that perhaps President Donald Trump should get credit for North Korea backing down on its threat to hit Guam with a missile. Unfortunately for Berman, he broke an important taboo among the left that Trump should never be given credit for any positive achievements.So how to explain that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un apparently blinked? Well, Vox has come up with a highly creative, if laughable, solution. The...

    ATLANTA - Former United States President Jimmy Carter released a statement Thursday after the recent comments made back and forth between United States officials and North Korea. Here is the statement: ======================================================= "The harsh rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang during recent months has exacerbated an already confrontational relationship between our countries, and has probably eliminated any chance of good faith peace talks between the United States and North Korea. In addition to restraining the warlike rhetoric, our leaders need to encourage talks between North Korea and other countries, especially China and Russia. The recent UN Security Council unanimous vote for...

    An esoteric prophecy written over a century ago described the solar eclipse that will traverse the entire United States next week and predicted, in shocking detail, what the astronomical event portends for the outcome of the current North Korean-US conflict. The total solar eclipse’s timing is meaningful according to the Jewish calendar. Incredibly, it comes precisely at the beginning of a Hebrew month – Elul – singled out in a Jewish source as having significance for the specific political situation the US is facing today with Eastern aggressors. image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/yalkut-moshe.png The “Yalkut Moshe”, written by Rabbi Moshe ben Yisrael Benyamin...

    North Korea has backed off Guam and said that after reviewing plans with top Generals that it will not be going though with its “escalation.” It seems that for now, a combination of US Diplomacy and Chinese Sanctions has won through. But how close were we to actual war, and is this more evidence that President Trump is actually a canny international operator? The similarities between the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Guam situation are many (although clearly not exact parallels). An isolated country (perhaps with backing from a larger, more powerful nation) threatened the territories of the US and...

    Let’s hope that President Donald Trump’s“fire and fury” works out a little better than President George Bush’s “shock and awe.” Because if Kim Jong Un, the unhinged 33year-old leader of North Korea remains unchecked, we have a problem. This dude is so weird he makes Saddam Hussein look like Winston Churchill. You remember Saddam. He was the monster that ruled Iraq until we invaded and eventually found him hiding in a ditch. He was hanged in 2006. But before that, in March 2003, then-President George W. Bush launched his pre-invasion of Iraq with a “shock and awe” bombing campaign of...

    Remember all the recent caterwauling about President Donald Trump's policy towards North Korea in the mainstream media in general and at CNN in particular? Folks like the reliably ridiculous Chris Cillizza slammed a Trump tweet about "locked and loaded" as inflamatory because many people supposedly would not read the rest of the tweet which puts that term in context. Other usual CNN suspects such as Fareed Zakaria denounced Trump for supposedly mishandling the North Korea situation. Therefore it was quite surprising to see that the co-host of CNN's Newsroom, John Berman, appears to have given Trump credit for the fact that...

    With his public alarmed by President Trump’s recent threats to North Korea, President Moon Jae-in of South Korea issued an unusually blunt rebuke to the United States on Tuesday, warning that any unilateral military action against the North over its nuclear weapons program would be intolerable. “No one should be allowed to decide on a military action on the Korean Peninsula without South Korean agreement,” Mr. Moon said in a nationally televised speech. As a candidate for the presidency, Mr. Moon, a liberal who took office in May, said he would “say no to the Americans” if necessary. But he...
