North Korea represents the most imminent
threat to US national security

Fox News, by John Yoo

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/13/2017 4:42:42 AM

North Korea represents the most imminent threat to U.S. national security. Pyongyang’s test this month of a fusion bomb and its launch last month of an ICBM have demonstrated its ability to launch nuclear attacks on U.S. soil. Kim Jong Un’s regime may not be fully deterred by a retaliatory strike – it already enslaves most of its population. Even if North Korea never fires upon the continental U.S., it might attack South Korea and Japan or share its technology with other American enemies, such as Iran or even terrorist groups. Nevertheless, we will likely witness yet another cycle of fruitless

I think the most dangerous threat to our national security is a lot closer to home. It´s called the Democratic Party!

Okay, Mr. Yoo...if you say so. Let´s nuke ´em and get it over with. Attacking Japan and SoKor seems to be more their problem than ours. Maybe Japan can deploy its "defense forces".

Anthony Weiner gets hard time
New York Post, by Kaja Whitehouse    Original Article

It’s hard time for Anthony Weiner. The disgraced ex-congressman broke down crying as he was sentenced to 21 months in prison Monday for convincing a high school student to undress and touch herself via Skype in 2016. “This was a serious crime. It’s a serious crime that deserves serious punishment,” Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote said as the convicted sext fiend dropped his head into his hand and wept. After the courtroom cleared, Weiner sat crying in his chair with his lawyers patting him on the back. His mom also sat crying on the bench behind him, sitting next to Weiner’s brother Jason

Alejandro Villanueva, the lone football player on the Pittsburgh Steelers who stood during the national anthem Sunday while the rest of his team remained in the locker room, has become more popular than ever as sales of his jersey have skyrocketed. Sales of the former Army Ranger’s jersey on Fanatics.com shot up to the highest-seller among Pittsburgh Steelers jersey as of just 10 PM Eastern time. Additionally, Villanueva’s jersey sales rocketed into the top sellers in the entire league as of 7:45 PM EST behind only Marshawn Lynch, Derek Carr, Carson Wentz, Brown, and Aaron Rodgers, 247 Sports reported.

Hillary Clinton, during a recent interview promoting her new book, stated that she would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the November 2016 election. One day later, she reversed herself saying, “I think no one, including me, is saying we will contest the election.” While Clinton did walk back the statement, to assert something so provocative, get national publicity, and pull it back just a day later hardly excuses a serious error. Given this unprecedented suggestion, judgment needs to be cast on the former secretary of State for how she has conducted herself, what she has said,

The Ridiculous Expulsion Of Uber From London

In its ongoing battle against the establishment, unions, lobbyists and government cronyism, ride hailing service Uber has faced innumerable challenges, legal battles and attacks. The latest comes to us from across the pond and most of the usual list of suspects are once again involved. In London, the government transport regulator announced that Uber’s license to operate a taxi service was up at the end of the month and would not be renewed. London’s new mayor, the extremely liberal Sadiq Khan, has been taking the side of the taxi companies for some time, so when you hear that the announcement

As more than 100 NFL players protested during the singing of America’s national anthem across the country Sunday, what had been a small protest of the way police treat African-Americans turned into a much larger protest directed at President Trump. The flare-up started on Friday with the president’s blistering attack against the NFL, the NBA and several players, telling a political rally in Alabama: “Wouldn´t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ´Get that son of a b---- off the field right now.´ " President Trump continued his barrage over the

President Donald Trump amped up the energy at the United Nations 72nd General Assembly. At his maiden speech before General Assembly Tuesday, Trump called North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man.” He threatened “to totally destroy” the hermit kingdom. He told reporters, “I have decided” whether to certify the international nuclear pact with Iran — but he would not reveal what that decision might be, not even to British Prime Minister Theresa May. Kim showed himself game for a verbal food fight. “A frightened dog barks louder,” he wrote in a first-person statement. It ended, the New York Times reports,

The Unlearned Lessons of 2016
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/24/2017 5:26:51     Post Reply
We’re eight months into the Trump presidency, and we can now draw one frustrating conclusion: Very few of the voices opposed to the president want to learn anything from their experience in 2016. The media will not slow down and make sure they get the story right as well as getting it first. Does it feel as if the country’s largest news organizations attempted any serious self-reflection about how they covered the 2016 election? Are they attempting to be more fair-minded, more dedicated to accuracy, resisting groupthink and the temptation to become an echo chamber? Hardly. At Politico, journalism professor

Several dozen tradition-minded Roman Catholic theologians, priests and academics have formally accused Pope Francis of spreading heresy with his 2016 opening to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics. In a 25-page letter delivered to Francis last month and provided Saturday to The Associated Press, the 62 signatories issued a "filial correction" to the pope — a measure they said hadn´t been employed since the 14th century. The letter accused Francis of propagating seven heretical positions concerning marriage, moral life and the sacraments with his 2016 document "The Joy of Love" and subsequent "acts, words and omissions." The initiative follows another formal act by four

Oakland A´s catcher becomes first MLB

Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first Major League Baseball player to kneel during the national anthem Saturday, after President Trump criticized athletes for the form of protest. Photos from the game show Maxwell kneeling with his hand on his heart and facing the American flag during the national anthem. Teammate Mark Canh was seen placing his hand on Maxwell´s shoulder. Maxwell is the son of a U.S. soldier and was born on a military base in Germany. His decision to kneel follows comments from Trump during a Friday rally in Alabama in which he called on NFL owners to fire

Ed Koch, the late mayor of New York, delighted in offering salty opinions on sundry matters. He was often rebuked on the ground that he should be more dignified and stick to his knitting. Koch’s response was that he didn’t lose his First Amendment rights when he became mayor. He was right, just as Donald Trump retains his free speech rights even though he lives in the White House. Naturally, the president is being called “divisive” for his attack on the relative handful of NFL players who kneel rather than stand for the National Anthem. Commissioner Roger Goodell demanded “respect” for the

John McCain has once again shown he has no loyalty to his party, his friends, or to his voters. In likely torpedoing what may prove Republicans’ last effort to rid the country of ObamaCare, McCain evinced the nostalgia of an old man for better times. He wants the Senate to operate as it once did, with bipartisan comity and regular order. Yes, and I’d like to return to the days when kids were addicted to twilight stickball rather than video games. Those gentler times are long gone. What we have now is a bitterly divided Congress, and country. Democrat leaders Chuck

There really ought to be a statute of limitations on how long John McCain can play the tortured war hero card. His war hero status was exhausted with me a decade ago over a single instance. Brad Smith, who as chairman of the Federal Election Commission and law professor dared to criticize the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on constitutional grounds (later vindicated in several Supreme Court cases culminating in the glorious Citizens United decision), came before a Senate committee one day to testify about campaign finance laws. He had recently had surgery, and had to appear in a wheelchair. Smith wheeled himself

Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W.

While the rest of his teammates remained in the locker room, Villanueva stood in the tunnel holding his helmet in his left hand and holding his right hand over his heart as the anthem played.

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

In June 1979, the Bee Gees were on top of the world. Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year. The year before, it spent 24 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. And now the band was playing 60,000-seat arenas across America. Disco was king, and the Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, clad in white suits and flashing gold chains — were its ambassadors. At the start of the tour, Maurice got hold of a T-shirt that made everyone
