N.K. agrees with Russia
to expand labor exports

Yonhap News Agency [Seoul, Korea], by Staff

Original Article

Seoul - North Korea has recently concluded an agreement with Russia to expand the shipment of its workers to the Eurasian country despite the escalating U.N. sanctions on the North´s nuclear and missile provocations, a U.S. broadcaster reported Tuesday. "The two countries intensively discussed an issue involving the North´s labor exports during a meeting of their joint working group in Pyongyang Friday," Radio Free Asia said, citing a Facebook account of the Russian Embassy in the North Korean capital. The (North) Korean Central News Agency also made the same report Friday. (Snip) One of the major agenda items was a

Comments:
If you think that China will be the only obstacle to our dealing with the Norks, look at this bilateral agreement with Russia, even now. What is also interesting is that the article says that Russia requires these workers must learn to speak Russian and pass a history test. HA!

My guess: North Korean workers will be exploited. Russian government will pay North Korean government, and the North Korean government will pay the workers and/or their families a small part of the money paid by the Russian government. The rest of the money will go to the North Korean elite--- for example, keeping Kim Fatty III in his favorite Swiss cheese.

Katy Perry receives backlash
for Barack Obama joke
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/1/2017 9:53:24     Post Reply
Katy Perry came under fire this past weekend after she joked that dying her black hair blonde was like former President Barack Obama being replaced by Donald Trump. Us Weekly reported that the incident occurred during an Instagram Live session on Saturday where the 32-year-old pop star read a series of fan questions. “Oh, someone says, ‘I miss your old black hair,’” she said. “Oh, really? Do you miss Barack Obama as well? Oh, OK. Times change. Bye! See you guys later.” (Tweet) The “Bon Appétit” singer then started laughing and turned around to look at her friends, seemingly searching for their approval on what she viewed as a

Trump comment on N. Korea prompts more

In 2007, presidential candidate Barack Obama said he’d meet with the leaders of North Korea or Iran without preconditions, and the media largely gave him a pass or even defended him. On Monday, President Trump said he’d meet with North Korea’s leader “under the right circumstances,” prompting a widespread tone of alarm in the press. “If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Mr. Trump said of Kim Jong un Monday in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.”

President Donald Trump said he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un amid heightened tensions over his country’s nuclear weapons program if the circumstances were right. “If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump said Monday in an interview with Bloomberg News. “If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.” North Korea has become the most urgent national security threat and foreign policy issue facing Trump as his first 100 days in office passed. Kim’s regime has continued development of its nuclear and

Seoul, South Korea - The C.I.A. director, Mike Pompeo, visited the South Korean capital on Monday amid heightened tensions with North Korea, and about a week before South Koreans vote for a new president, an embassy spokesman said on Monday. Mr. Pompeo, traveling with his wife, was in Seoul to meet with American diplomats and military officials, said the embassy spokesman, Daniel Turnbull. The C.I.A. chief had no meetings scheduled with officials from the South Korean president’s office, Mr. Turnbull said, or with any of the candidates vying to succeed Park Geun-hye, who was impeached for corruption in December

Civilian casualties are rising in the Afghanistan war and Islamist insurgents are keeping up the pressure on the U.S.-backed government in Kabul, a government watchdog reported Monday. After 16 years of fighting and more than $117 billion spent by U.S. taxpayers, Afghanistan “remains in the grip of a deadly war,” said John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction. His quarterly report lays out in stark detail the challenge facing President Trump and his national-security team in Afghanistan, where the U.S. has about 9,000 troops serving as advisers to Afghan security forces and conducting

Hamas, in New Document, Seeks
to Show a More Moderate Face
New York Times, by Ian Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/1/2017 11:44:16     Post Reply
Jerusalem - Hamas, the militant group that has long engaged in violent resistance against Israel, sought on Monday to present a more moderate public face as it struggles for control among Palestinians with its main rival, the Palestinian Authority. A new document of principles — released by Hamas just days before the Palestinian Authority’s leader, Mahmoud Abbas, was scheduled to meet President Trump — calls for closer ties to Egypt, waters down the anti-Semitic language that is prominent in its charter and accepts at least a provisional Palestinian state. Fragments of the document have been leaking out for weeks,

Montreat, NC - A private North Carolina Christian college is insisting that its faculty and staff sign a document that opposes same-sex marriage and abortion. One faculty member says she and eight of her colleagues have refused to sign it and are leaving the school. News media outlets report that part of Montreat College´s "Community Life Covenant" expects those who work there to affirm "the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman" and the "worth of every human being from conception to death." Covenant opponents blame the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which contributed $100,000 to the college´s

If this Silicon Valley food-tech startup has its way, its lab-grown meat—which includes chicken, duck and beef—will be on a supermarket shelf near you within the next five years. (Snip) In March, the company announced that it created the “world’s first chicken strip from animal cells,” following their animal-free meatball debut in 2016. Lab-grown beef was previously developed in 2012 by a group of Dutch scientists. “Essentially, we are taking a number of animal cells, giving them clean and nutritious food and then we watch them grow into a muscle. We harvest that muscle and then cook it,” Valeti says.

Science says parents of successful

Any good parent wants their kids to stay out of trouble, do well in school, and go on to do awesome things as adults. And while there isn´t a set recipe for raising successful children, psychology research has pointed to a handful of factors that predict success. Unsurprisingly, much of it comes down to the parents. Here´s what parents of successful kids have in common: 1. They make their kids do chores. "If kids aren´t doing the dishes, it means someone else is doing that for them," (Snip) "And so they're absolved of not only the work, but of learning that work has to be done and that each one of us must contribute for the

Tokyo - A Japanese warship accompanied a United States Navy supply ship on Monday on its way to join an American aircraft carrier and three other warships in a strike force that entered the Sea of Japan over the weekend. The group is meant to send a powerful deterrent signal to North Korea at a time of mounting tensions on the Korean Peninsula over the North’s advancing nuclear program. Japan’s action is a sign of its expanding military presence in the region. It is particularly significant because it represents the first time a warship is being used to aid an allied force since the country’s Parliament passed legislation

US top court rejects ´gay
conversion´ therapy ban challenge
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/1/2017 9:55:35     Post Reply
The US Supreme Court on Monday left intact California´s ban on "gay conversion" therapy aimed at turning youths under age 18 away from homosexuality, rejecting a Christian minister´s challenge to the law asserting it violates religious rights. The justices, turning away a challenge to the 2012 law for the second time in three years, let stand a lower court´s ruling that it was constitutional and neither impinged upon free exercise of religion nor impacted the activities of clergy members. The law prohibits state-licensed mental health counselors, including psychologists and social workers, from offering therapy to change

Congressional negotiators reached an agreement late Sunday on a broad spending package to fund the government through the end of September, alleviating fears of a government shutdown later this week, several congressional aides said. Congress is expected to vote on the roughly $1 trillion package early this week. The bipartisan agreement includes policy victories for Democrats, whose votes will be necessary to pass the measure in the Senate, as well as $12.5 billion in new military spending and $1.5 billion more for border security requested by Republican leaders in Congress. The agreement follows weeks of tense

Hillary Clinton had to ‘suppress the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ when she conceded the presidential election to Donald Trump on the night of November 8, according to an excerpt from a new book about her ill-fated campaign. The extraordinary account was relayed by the authors of Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Election Campaign. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes describe the behind-the-scenes goings on during that fateful night – particularly when the realization sets in that Clinton would fail to win crucial swing states like Florida, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump should release his tax returns. Host Jake Tapper asked, “Given that President Trump is proposing changes that could benefit him personally by tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of dollars, do you think that the American people have a right to see his tax returns so that they can know how this plan would affect his bottom line?” McCain answered, “I think I’ve said all along I thought every candidate for president should disclose their tax returns. I haven’t changed.”

Washington- Political analyst David Gergen delivered a harsh critique of President Trump´s campaign-style rally Saturday night in an appearance on CNN´s "Newsroom." "To bring your campaign speech into the presidency is something presidents rarely do," said Gergen, who has been a White House adviser to four presidents. "This was the most divisive speech I´ve ever heard from a sitting American president." Trump´s delivered a rousing address to a crowd of supporters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania instead of attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner in Washington.

Trump’s Degradation of the Language

One of the more pernicious and insidious effects of the Donald Trump regime may well be the damage he does to language itself. Trumpian language is a thing unto itself: some manner of sophistry peppered with superlatives. It is a way of speech that defies the Reed-Kellogg sentence diagram. It is a jumble of incomplete thoughts stitched together with arrogance and ignorance. America is suffering under the tyranny of gibberish spouted by the lord of his faithful 46 percent. As researchers at Carnegie Mellon pointed out last spring, presidential candidates in general use “words and grammar typical of students in grades 6-8, though

Ohio Gov. John Kasich returned to the national spotlight this week with criticism for the GOP and President Trump, raising questions about the former Republican presidential candidate´s political future. It´s clear that the governor wants to distinguish his brand of conservatism from Trump´s, a point the governor made repeatedly during a presidential bid that saw him become the last option in the primary for "#NeverTrump" Republicans. But what´s less clear now is what comes next for the governor, whose term expires in early 2019. While Trump may embody the opposite of Kasich´s school of conservative politics, Kasich´s options are limited as long as Trump sits in the Oval Office. "Kasich is kind of in

HOUSTON — They say everything is bigger in Texas. And certainly, the saying holds true for the state’s feral hog population. At 2.5 million it’s the nation’s largest, and is growing exponentially as the sows birth litters of five to six piglets twice a year and those piglets can start reproducing before they are even a year old. Brought to Texas by Spanish explorers in 1542, wild pigs here cause an estimated $52 million a year in damage as the bristly backed hooligans smash through fences, decimate crops, eat baby livestock, dig up internet and water lines, ruin golf courses

Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators are expected to take to the streets Monday in massive May Day events across the USA mostly protesting the policies of President Trump. May Day — also known as International Worker’s Day — has spawned protests around the globe in past years highlighting workers’ rights. But on Monday, the impetus for the U.S. marches span from immigrants´ rights to LGBT awareness to police misconduct. “There’s a real galvanization of all the groups this year,” said Fernanda Durand of CASA in Action, which will lead a march of about 10,000 people for immigrants´ rights through downtown

Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s foreign policy, President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice said it has been “unsteady and rocky” like the “crazy aunt in the attic that nobody knows what is going to do next.” When asked to characterize Trump’s foreign policy, Rice said, “I think obviously, Fareed, it’s only been just about 100 days, so it’s early days, but I would say that in many respects it’s been unsteady and rocky.

Joe Biden has been saying yes to nearly all the political invitations coming his way, with new ones arriving almost daily. Privately, the former vice president and his staff have started talking about how to begin planning a strategy with a roughly 18-month timeline so that if he decides on another presidential run, he’ll be best positioned to get it off the ground. Biden will be 77 by the time of the next Iowa caucuses, but Biden 2020 just might happen. He will be in Manchester Sunday night for a speech at the New Hampshire Democratic Party dinner. After that

In December 2014, Hillary Clinton made up her mind to run for president. But even as her team geared up in early 2015 for the formal announcement in April, the campaign was beset by problems: press leaks, the burgeoning e-mail-server scandal, competing speechwriters, divided staffers, leaderless advisers and a meddling Bill Clinton. Yet the most alarming issue of all, authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes reveal in this exclusive excerpt from their new book, “Shattered,” was the candidate’s inability to convey a clear vision or message.

Some of you may remember a man named John Kasich. He’s the Republican governor of Ohio who hosted last year’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland but declined to attend because, Donald Trump. He was also the last of 16 other competitors to give up their quest to win the GOP presidential nomination because, Donald Trump. Now, 163 weeks before his party’s next convention, Kasich has written another book.
