    Rumblings Last week, Kim Jong Un threatened to annihilate parts of the United States in what Pyongyang termed “a super-mighty pre-emptive strike.” Then we got a slew of reports indicating that a U.S. citizen had been detained by the North Korean government. Then, over the weekend, the Norks released a statement indicating they were preparing to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier conducting maneuvers in the region. Now, as tensions rise, everyone is waiting for the United States response. So far, we’ve heard nothing concrete.
  • More Obama Lies About The Iran Nuclear Deal Exposed

    04/24/2017 10:30:36 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | April 24, 2017 | Katie Pavlich
    For good reason, the Iran nuclear agreement has been deeply unpopular and viewed with much skepticism since its signing in 2013. Not only did the Obama administration negotiate the agreement without a guarantee Iran wouldn't eventually build a nuclear bomb, President Obama and his State Department approved a number of secret side deals that have been exposed in the aftermath of negotiations. One of those secret deals included $400 billion in cash sent to Tehran in the middle of the night on an airplane. When caught, the administration initially denied the transaction and then later admitted much of the untraceable cash...

    Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, said on Saturday night that the White House is now dominated by right-wing pro-Israelis. It should be noted that she intended this to be a negative comment on the new administration Ynet, a Hebrew language Israeli news service, reported that Ashrawi bemoaned the right-wing, pro-Israel stance of President Trump’s administration. “We used to say there were settlers in the Israeli coalition borne of the far right that detests Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims. But today we say there are settlers inside the White House,” she said. “The administration has adopted the extreme...

    Last year’s White House Easter egg roll featured a surprise visit from Beyoncé; athletes from the NBA and Washington Redskins; and a performance by actress and singer Idina Menzel, the voice behind that catchy song from the movie “Frozen.” This year, the big act for the Trump administration is the Martin Family Circus, a six-person family band from Nashville that’s driving up to D.C. for the annual event in an RV.
  • Move over, Bieber: An unknown N.J. boy band is headlining Trump's Easter Egg Roll

    04/15/2017 4:24:25 PM PDT · by SMGFan · 10 replies
    Recent news reports have cast doubt on President Donald Trump's staff's ability to execute the high-stakes theater that is the White House Easter Egg Roll. But don't worry: It's all good, bro. The boys from New Jersey have it covered. Bro4, a pop boy-band from Ridgefield Park, will be among the entertainment at Monday's event. The band will play three sets on the South Lawn throughout the festivities, to an audience expected to be more than 20,000 people. Not a bad gig for an unknown act, especially considering that previous Easter Egg Roll performers have included Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae and Fifth Harmony. 
  • Inside the ‘Surprisingly Great’ North Korean Hacker Hotel (luxury pad - in China)

    North Korea is so isolated that rather than bring the Internet to its hackers, it brings them to it—in a swank hotel in China. The luxury hotel that has been called a command post for North Korean hackers would make for a unique holiday getaway and give you lots to talk about back home. “Surprisingly Great Hotel - Clean, Tasteful.... and North Korean!” says a trip advisor review for the Chilbosan Hotel in Shenyang, China. For just $53, you get “a deluxe twin room,” including a North Korean breakfast considerably more substantial than those enjoyed by the vast majority of...

    He has not only inspired folks to open their wallets, he has also helped raise a small army of newbie activists. Folks like English teacher Natalie Rebetsky, who never thought of herself as a political person or partisan activist. Until now. Before Trump, Rebetsky was known as the colorful chair of the English department at Linganore High School in Frederick, Md., whose only involvement with the White House was a mild obsession with the annual White House Easter Egg Roll — the largest annual public event at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., with 35,000 people attending last year. When her kids were...

    The groups — the National Security Archive, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Government (CREW) and the Knight First Amendment Center — are seeking visitor logs for the White House, as well as the names of those meeting with President Trump at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida and his Trump Tower offices in New York City. . . . "We hoped that the Trump administration would follow the precedent of the Obama administration and continue to release visitor logs, but unfortunately they have not," CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said in a statement.

    I thank God every day for President Trump and pray for his continuing success. Had Trump not entered the race, the GOPe would have delivered the nomination to Jeb Bush and then Her Royal Heinous Hillary would be sitting in the White House today. Those who think that doesn't make any difference whatsoever are perfectly free to post somewhere else. God bless President Trump. God bless America.

    would like to express my gratitude to Jared Kushner for reviving interest in my 2006 book, The Price of Admission. I have never met or spoken with him, and it’s rare in this life to find such a selfless benefactor. Of course, I doubt he became Donald Trump’s son-in-law and consigliere merely to boost my lagging sales, but still, I’m thankful. My book exposed a grubby secret of American higher education: that the rich buy their underachieving children’s way into elite universities with massive, tax-deductible donations. It reported that New Jersey real estate developer Charles Kushner had pledged $2.5m to...

    President Trump recently hosted conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for dinner at the White House, according to a new report. Limbaugh and his wife had dinner with the president, Vice President Pence and Pence's wife Karen at the White House on March 23, Politico reported on Wednesday. “I’ve known President Trump for many years and have played golf with him in Florida,” Limbaugh said in a statement to Politico. “He is a magnificent host and spending time with him is immensely enjoyable.” Trump also invited Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine” over for dinner...

    The White House is expected to release the text of a new deal on Tuesday that would give states the power to opt out of certain Obamacare insurance mandates, in a major attempt to revive Obamacare repeal as early as this week. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the Freedom Caucus, told reporters after meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and White House officials that he expects the text of the new compromise on Tuesday. The compromise would allow states to opt out of forcing insurers to cover 10 essential health benefits in plans, including maternity care and hospitalization. The...

    Many of the most iconic photos of Barack Obama’s presidency came from Pete Souza, the official White House photographer. Granted extensive access to Obama, he shot the Osama Bin Laden war room photo, moments the president shared with Michelle Obama, the many famous images of the president interacting with kids, and countless more. These carefully composed photos so defined the public image of Obama that it nearly made Souza a household name. In its visual representation, as in so many other respects, the Trump administration has made a break with the past. Most of what we see of Trump comes...
