  • Wife of Washington Post Columnist Who Spent Almost a Decade Calling Trump a Foreign Agent Gets Indicted for Being an Unregistered Foreign Agent

    Federal authorities have indicted the wife of Max Boot, a deranged leftist who works for the Washington Post, for operating as an unregistered foreign agent for South Korea. Which is honestly kind of hilarious given how Boot is one of those TDS morons who accused Trump of being a foreign agent without any evidence. He’s also one of those Zelensky simps who begs the American government to send even more countless billions to Ukraine, which isn’t a surprise given how his unregistered foreign agent wife used to work for the CIA.

The allegations state that from Oct. 2013, Terry engaged in activities that compromised her role as an independent foreign policy...

    Seoul City councillor Kim Ki-duck argued women’s increased participation in the workforce over the years had made it harder for men to get jobs and to find women who wanted to marry them. He said the country had recently “begun to change into a female-dominant society” and that this might "partly be responsible for an increase in male suicide attempts”. South Korea has one of the highest suicide rates among the world’s rich countries. The report, published on the city council’s official website, showed that the number of suicide attempts along the river had risen from 430 in 2018 to...

    South Korea is reconsidering its policy on providing lethal weapons to Ukraine in response to a recent defense pact between Russia and North Korea. This shift comes after South Korea condemned the agreement between Russia and North Korea, which pledged mutual defense assistance in the event of war. Previously, South Korea had only provided non-lethal aid to Ukraine, but the new development could see South Korea supplying artillery shells and possibly other lethal weapons to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia.

    Major weapons exporter South Korea will "reconsider" a longstanding policy that bars it from supplying arms directly to Ukraine, a presidential official said Thursday, after North Korea and Russia signed a defense deal. Russia's President Vladimir Putin was in Pyongyang Wednesday for a high-profile state visit that underscored his growing ties with leader Kim Jong Un, as the two signed a "breakthrough" agreement that included a pledge to come to each other's aid if attacked. Hours later, Seoul said it was "planning to reconsider the issue of providing weapons support to Ukraine," a presidential official told reporters. Seoul has a...
