North Korea´s Army Is Full of Jumping,
Leaping, High-Kicking Martial Artists

Atlantic, by Connor Simpson

Amid all of the very real threats of war and stuff from North Korea, you´d think American intelligence officers want as much video footage of the enemy as possible. Well, here is one video featuring North Korean exercises and Kim Jong-Un holding a gun, and we´ll say this: they certainly get points for presentation. Remember the clap-happy report from Dennis Rodman´s diplomatic basketball vacation? This video comes courtesy of the same Youtube channel that gave us that Rodman video. It appears to be the same state news channel.(Snip for video)This latest dispatch from North Korea´s state television

Vaguely reminiscent of that scene in Indiana Jones where he faces the swordsman going though an elaborate series of sword moves, and he shrugs his shoulders and dispatches him with one shot. Same deal here.

The hats on the military brass remind me of barstools.

The routine by the soldiers looks like a bad Busby Berkeley number from the 1930s.

We should have wiped out North Korea back when we had the chance. We will no doubt have to redo Vietnam eventually too. We have become adept at entering into wars, losing lives, then walking away with the same problem we started with.

As a black belt and former martial arts instructor, I can tell you that the average 10 year old American yellow belt student ( advanced beginner level ) can kick as well as the soldiers.

That wonderful music just blows me away!
But I notice the cold-weather gear is all civilian. I wonder what the deal is with that.
Also, during the martial arts drills, some of the guys were screwing up and doing things wrong and sloppily.
During the jump-over-each-other phase, the guys would land obviously hurt and stagger off camera.
The Dear Leader had to give his generals marksmanship instruction.
And finally, the soldiers at the rifle range had the poorest firing stances I have ever seen. I wonder how they hit the hillside, let alone the targets.

#13, that was my favorite scene in the entire movie. Come to find out, Ford had the flu that day and was running a 101 degree temp and just did not feel up to the original scene so he improvised. During the test run of the movie, that scene was very popular.

Remember the Segway scooter fad some years ago? This reminds me of a recent photo of the Chinese practicing for riot control on them. They were also target practicing at the same time. I figure that the Chinese would have no problems because the rioters would be on the ground dying of laughter at the sight. I know I would be.

If their tin horn little commie general/dictator Kim Jughead Ugh decides to pull the nuclear trigger the little high kickers better bring more than bamboo sticks, numchucks, samari swords and karate chops to the fight.

Send Dennis Rodman back for some negotiations with a gift fruit basket, John Wayne videos and an I-pod with Obama teleprompter readings.

The high leg kicks reminded me of the Jane Fonda exercise videos. We shouldn´t discount them because of their small size. Prior to Pearl Harbor the belief was that the Japanese suffered from poor eyesight and couldn´t accurate drop bombs. And with nuclear weapons you don´t have to be that close. ØDumbø should go to North Korea and discuss thing he and UmUmUm have in common such as how to destroy the economy of a country over a heaping plate of dog. And give him a cell phone made by Samsung in South Korea.

#10 and #34 are right.

Do not underestimate the North Koreans. What they lack in fire power, they make up for in brainwashed committment. And if they don´t fully believe that the Americans are the evil power they have been spoonfed to believe, their families and loved ones are held hostage to reinforce their committment.

They are a brutal people, led by a brutal regime and it is absolute folly to underestimate them.

Nevada rancher: “I did not graze

The fairest explainer I’ve found on the Bundy saga is Becket Adams’s post at TheBlaze. If, like me (and Ace), you came to this story after it had already been hyper-polarized and weren’t sure whose facts to trust, try Adams’s Q&A. He plays it straight. In one sense this is complicated — land ownership, grazing rights dating back decades, a court battle, the feds tasing a Bundy family member, even a Harry Reid cameo — but after listening to this Glenn Beck interview with Bundy, it seems surprisingly simple. Bundy stopped paying the BLM in 1993 for grazing rights on

Antiquated law adds billions to fuel costs

An obscure 1920 law is costing Americans billions of dollars a year in higher fuel costs. The Jones Act requires that cargo shipped from one US port to another be carried on a US-registered vessel, built, owned and crewed by Americans. This protectionist law was designed to support a shipbuilding industry that no longer exists — but inertia and labor-union muscle keep it on the books. The law mainly makes the news in time of crisis. It delayed shipment of road salt to New Jersey during a shortage last winter — happily, without incident, as the weather moderated before the Garden State

Ukraine and the Obama doctrine: Our president´s

The continuation of Putin’s push into Ukraine makes it official. The Obama Doctrine is to ignore an international crisis or go to war. There is no in between. And President Obama’s been clear that he isn’t going to start any new wars. The recent bipartisan push by Congress to help Ukraine, however, was the latest signal that the president´s foreign policy is unraveling and his doctrine of ‘war or ignore’ is making America less safe. The bill had a huge majority in Congress (378-84 in the House, 98-2 in the Senate) pushing back against a slow and disinterested White House.

WASHINGTON -- People with old Social Security debts are getting a reprieve - for now. The Social Security Administration had been participating in a program in which thousands of people were having their tax refunds seized to recoup overpayments that happened more than a decade ago. On Monday, Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin said she was suspending the program while the agency conducts a review. Social Security recipients and members of Congress complained that people were being forced to repay overpayments that were sometimes paid to their parents or guardians when they were children.

State GOP gets to vote

To secede or not to secede. That will be the question for Wisconsin Republicans at next month´s convention. Earlier this month, the party´s Resolutions Committee voted in favor of a proposal that says the state party "supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin´s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede." A version of the so-called "state sovereignty" resolution was first OK´d last month by one of the state GOP´s eight regional caucuses as an assertion of the state´s 10th Amendment rights. The measure also calls for ending all mandates that go "beyond the scope of the constitutionally delegated powers of the federal government."

How Being a Doctor Became

Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession, and 300 physicians commit suicide every year. When did it get this bad? By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out. Medical students

Infamous boxing promoter Don King isn’t holding a grudge against the Rev. Al Sharpton in the wake of a blockbuster report detailing how Sharpton snitched on King to the FBI. King on Sunday called the revelations about Sharpton’s 1980s work as a paid undercover informant “old news” and praised Sharpton as a “stand-up person” for secretly recording mobsters with a customized Hartmann briefcase provided by the feds. “Al Sharpton had enough guts to fight, if it is true, to fight for others spending their ways and means to take away opportunity,” King told The Post. “How many people would put

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016?

But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public
