    Wonder why we see the RINO defectors to Biden get so much print - while the thousands of former Democrats who are now on the Trump Train get zero coverage in the MSM. Why is that?

    A group of Chinese virologists released a strange new paper on Monday that claims the new coronavirus was engineered in a Chinese lab. One of the virologists, Li-Meng Yan, told the Fox News host Tucker Carlson it was a "man-made virus" that the Chinese government released "intentionally." Yan and her coauthors work for groups cofounded by the former Trump strategist Steve Bannon. He directed the groups before his arrest in August. Some members of the Trump administration have pushed a fringe theory that the virus accidentally leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, but there's no evidence of this.

    Kim Geum-Hyuk, who now lives in Seoul, South Korea, apears in an interview with the YouTube channel DIMPLE A North Korean defector said he was “shocked” by the kindness he encountered when he first visited the United States because his home country portrays U.S. citizens as “people who torture and kill.” “[The U.S.] is not just ‘bad,’” Kim Geum-Hyuk, who now lives in Seoul, South Korea, said in an interview with the YouTube channel DIMPLE. “America is a complete enemy for [North Korea].

    Breaking news from 100 years ago: Russia wants to meddle in our affairs. After a century of Soviet efforts to infiltrate our government agencies, our nuclear and technology programs and institutions in our country from cultural to political, Robert Mueller’s assertion that Russian operatives posted Facebook ads to taint the 2016 elections is pretty pathetic. Mueller alleges, "The nationals had a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election." Well, the entire Russian hierarchy has been thus engaged since its inception. It’s ironic that the Democrats have finally latched onto something they can demonize...

    The Hamas terrorist organization was stung by the recent high-profile defection of one of its top operatives, Suheib Yousef. Yousef is the son of Hamas co-founder, Sheikh Hassan Yousef. He is also the brother of Mosab Hassan Yousef, who defected from Hamas in the late 1990s. Mosab provided Israel’s Shin Bet counter-terrorist security service with information on Hamas and ultimately converted to Christianity. He also authored the book, “Son of Hamas,” exposing the group’s corruption, duplicity and brutality.

    Germany's intelligence service BND had in the 1990s obtained from a Russian informer a sample of the poison used against ex-double agent Sergei Skripal, German media reported Thursday, drawing a link to Moscow as the origin of the toxin.

But German newspapers Sueddeutsche Zeitung and Die Zeit as well as regional public broadcasters NDR and WDR said their...

The president described Ji Seong Ho’s suffering in excruciating detail, painting the North Korean government as an enemy of humanity — and of Christianity. “He woke up as a train ran over his limbs.
