    I woke up abruptly. Overzealous JROTC Cadets ran and yelled on the high school track across the street. I rolled over and grabbed my reading glasses. Time to return to the book which I’d fallen asleep reading. It’s Leo Strauss and the Politics of Exile by Eugene Sheppard. Thirty minutes later, I faced a tough choice. Should I go down and check on my children? Or watch an old Lomachenko fight on Youtube? Then my wife called up, “Babe, it’s garbage day. Take out the trash!” So I rushed downstairs. My typical Saturday ritual. As I dragged the trash out...

    Rush repeated today what we everyone has been saying, what we are being told does not add up. To add to the strangeness, we just learned that the Clinton's were in Hawaii to meet with their senators. Coincidence? What is your theory?
  • Vanity - Glimpse of Future USA through Democrat Party Hawaii political control.

    Well. Mr. & Mrs. America, you got a grand taste & good hard glimpse of Democrat Party incompetent, dangerous and lack of civil control leadership in the great state of Hawaii a few days back. The panic caused by "Democrat Party" poor management, and inept public servants is the hallmark seal of "all" Democrat Party political and governing actions. The entire political leadership in Hawaii is guilty of causing an unforgivable sin of terrorizing both, all the citizens and tourists living or vacationing on the Hawaiian Island Paradise. None of them, from A-Z, has any idea of what they are...

    Residents and visitors in the Hawaiian Islands Saturday received a missile warning alert in error, but not before creating a panic on social media. The alert read in all capital letters: “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.” The alert was sent sometime after 8 a.m. local time, and many people took to Twitter to share screenshots of their phones. A second emergency alert went out about 40 minutes later clarifying that the first alert was a false alarm, CNN associate producer Amanda Golden tweeted. “Repeat. False Alarm” the second alert read.

    The Washington Times ^ | January 2, 2018 | Bill Gertz - Washington Free Beacon
    China’s Communist Party adopted a secret plan in September to bolster the North Korean government with increased aid and military support, including new missiles, if Pyongyang halts further nuclear tests, according to an internal party document. The document, labeled “top secret” and dated Sept. 15 — just 12 days after North Korea’s latest underground nuclear blast — outlines China’s plan for dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue. It states China will allow North Korea to keep its current arsenal of nuclear weapons, contrary to Beijing’s public stance that it seeks a denuclearized Korean Peninsula. Chinese leaders also agreed to...

    North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, moved Monday to ease his country’s isolation by offering to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea next month, even as he claimed to have accomplished the ability to launch a nuclear missile at the mainland United States. Mixing the nuclear threat with an overture for easing tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula, Mr. Kim proposed immediate dialogue with South Korea to discuss the North’s participation in the Olympics. If such talks were held, they would mark the first time the two Koreas have had an official dialogue since the South’s new...

    The crew of a Hong Kong-flagged ship that allegedly violated U.N. sanctions by transferring oil to a North Korean vessel in October is being held in South Korea until a full inspection is sent to the Security Council, officials announced Friday. The Lighthouse Winmore is believed to have transferred about 600 tons of refined petroleum products to the North Korean ship, the Sam Jong 2, in international waters in the East China Sea on Oct. 19, after leaving the South Korean port of Yeosu, a South Korean Foreign Ministry official told the Associated Press. The announcement came on the same...

    A pair of rogue regimes with a longing for nuclear weapons promise to dominate Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s second year atop Foggy Bottom. Tillerson, in following President Trump’s distaste for former President Barack Obama’s decision-making, declared in 2017 an end to the era of “strategic patience” with Iran and North Korea. As the nation’s top diplomat, he has to try to rally international support for Trump’s more aggressive posture. Diplomacy doesn’t stop at home, though. Tillerson has to persuade Congress to support his vision for reorganizing the State Department, while maintaining his position in the administration, which has seemed...

    After Chinese vessels were “caught red handed” – in the words of President Trump – by US spy satellites, illegally selling oil to North Korea, and following this morning’s news that a Hong Kong ship was seized after transferring oil to North Korea, Reuters is reporting ‘two senior Western European security sources’ confirm Russian tankers have supplied fuel to North Korea on at least three occasions in recent months by transferring cargoes at sea. As Reuters reports, the transfers in October and November indicate that smuggling from Russia to North Korea has evolved to loading cargoes at sea since Reuters...

    The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse — Pestilence, War, Famine and Death — gallop through the Book of Revelation, and they’ve put in plenty of grim appearances elsewhere. Lately they’ve stabled their mounts in North Korea, where, having starved millions, a grisly dynasty preaches war, while developing not only nukes but diseases as weapons. North Korea isn’t a country, it’s a death cult. A recent defector from Kim Jong-un’s nightmare regime had anthrax antibodies in his system. It’s further evidence that, along with nuclear-weapons development and the use of chemical weapons (even on family members), Pyongyang’s less-discussed biological-weapons program —...

    Exclusive: Russian tankers fuelled North Korea via transfers at sea - sources LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian tankers have supplied fuel to North Korea on at least three occasions in recent months by transferring cargoes at sea, according to two senior Western European security sources, providing an economic lifeline to the secretive Communist state. The sales of oil or oil products from Russia, the world’s second biggest oil exporter and a veto-wielding member of the United Nations Security Council, breach U.N. sanctions, the security sources said. The transfers in October and November indicate that smuggling from Russia to North Korea has...

    (2nd LD) S. Korea seizes HK vessel over ship-to-ship oil transfer to N. Korea SEOUL, Dec. 29 (Yonhap) -- A Hong Kong-flagged vessel has been seized and inspected by South Korean authorities after secretly transferring oil to a North Korean vessel in international waters in a ship-to-ship transfer prohibited by the United Nations Security Council, government officials said Friday. South Korean customs authorities took and searched the vessel, Lighthouse Winmore, when it entered the country's Yeosu Port on Nov. 24 after transferring 600 tons of refined petroleum to a North Korean vessel on Oct. 19, the officials said.

    China did not export any oil products to North Korea in November as U.S. sanctions against the isolated country continue take effect, according to a report Tuesday from Reuters. The move comes as North Korea ratchets up ongoing nuclear and missile programs despite years of U.N. resolutions prohibiting the actions. U.N. Security Council imposed a new batch of limits of oil products earlier this month to the communist country. China did not export any gasoline, jet fuel, diesel or fuel oil, or any other petroleum products to North Korea last month, according to the report, that relied on General Administration...

    WASHINGTON — America’s top diplomat stepped back Friday from his offer of unconditional talks with North Korea, telling world powers the nuclear-armed nation must earn the right to negotiate with the United States. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s declaration before the U.N. Security Council marked a stunning reversal after he proposed discussions with Pyongyang without preconditions earlier this week. That overture was almost immediately rebutted by White House officials.
