President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
Who rationally wants war? And what do we do if we are continually menaced and threatened by somevloading up on weapons of war? Draw a clear line is a ratinal response. Reports...go hug your depends all you want...mad worked for 70´years among the other nuclear nations.
Absolutely delicious, delectable and divine to watch the media melt like the Wicked Witch of the West - weeping and moaning and decrying... against what exactly? A firm stand against a violent megalomaniacal dictator. They´ve picked their side.
Panties in such a tight knot that they (L. O´Donnell, in article) couldn´t hear, or couldn´t comprehend with their intellect (supposing they´ve got one) instead of emotions (which we know they´ve got lots of) what POTUS was saying.
Do these sillies understand context? I suspect someone was excerpting those lines which were planned to shock the audiences into consciousness their consciences.
MSM are mostly devoid of intellect and conscience.
POTUS was/is calling on the UN to implement measures which will finally bring NoRks to their senses and stop the development of nuclear arms. Maybe Iran would get the message, too... We hope, but must prepare for the worst.
According to the Coast Guard motto, "Semper paratus". Always prepared.
Alas, after years and years of neglect, indecision, trepidation by world leaders, and naive populations and media whining about world peace, two tumors have grossly metastasized.
And now "reporters are shaken by Trump´s tough talk"? heh
It´s kind of curious. Where are all the anti-nuclear weapons ´activists´? You know, the ones who for 45 years have agitated for a nuclear free world? Or in truth, do they only agitate for a nuclear free United States?
For the left, every problem in the world is America´s fault which explains O´Donnell´s remarks. The left thinks the United States should just give in to every tyrant in the world rather than defend itself.
Europe buried their head in the sand after WW1. Made lots of noise while hitler was building his military power. Let him get away with it. As the old saying goes the rest is history. The O´Donnell´s of the world make lots of noise but are ignorant of history and lack brain power. I certainly don´t want war. But better to stop North Korea now before rocket man gets to believe he´s also superman.
The clownish false news media do serve one useful purpose... unintentionally ... their absurd comments and commentary serve to bring Trump´s position to the general public´s attention while at the same time demonstrating the irrationality of the leftist media.
I claim no special knowledge of military tactics and strategy, but NK has huge artillery batteries along the DMZ, and those would have to be taken out simultaneously to protect South Koreans and U.S. troops. Doing that would require tactical nuclear weapons. I trust the president to do the right thing, especially after watching Viet Nam on public tv last night, when JFK acted like a slimeball about viet nam. One of the surviving family members of the 58,000 dead Americans lost in that war should urinate on JFK´s eternal flame.
A moment of truth. JFK had no intention of expanding U.S. intervention in Vietnam more than the "advisors" he put in place. He had traveled there as a senator, and had seen first-hand the quagmire the French had to experience.
As for O´Donnell he forgets one basic truth, the winners write the history books.
So much for diplomacy by selfie.Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, and her family had to flee their homeland after receiving death threats over a photo she posted online last month. Why? Because Idan posed with Miss Israel, Adar Gandelsman, at a Miss Universe International Beauty Pageant, the Times of Israel reported. Idan came under fire for posting the photo to Instagram, captioned, “Peace and Love from Miss Iraq and Miss Israel,” in addition to modeling a bikini.“The two of those things together caused a mess for her back home where people made threats against her and her family that if she
Female actresses attending this year’s Golden Globes ceremony are reportedly planning to wear only black in protest of the widening sexual abuse scandal that has engulfed Hollywood this year.According to E! News, the plan originally started with just a small group of women but gradually grew as other women wished to express solidarity. “So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” said ceremony host Jackie Oshry on The Morning Breath radio show. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices
On Friday, President Trump signaled that he could consider pardoning former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who has pled guilty to lying to the FBI and who is currently cooperating with the agency in their investigation into Russian election interference. Trump, who was headed to an FBI graduation ceremony, was stopped by the press on his way out. Here’s what he said: (Video) This sent the Left into paroxysms of outrage. How could Trump say such a thing in the midst of an ongoing investigation? Isn’t this evidence that Trump wants to engage in a cover-up before all the evidence
What does Rep. Trey Gowdy know that the American people don’t? All of us know full well Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe cannot be trusted as an impartial investigator when it comes to either Hillary Clinton or President Trump.(Photo) During an appearance on Fox News, the South Carolina Republican ‘predicted,’ that McCabe will be fired by the time he is scheduled to appear in front of the House next week.“I’ll be a little bit surprised if he is still an employee of the FBI this time next week,” Gowdy told Fox News when asked his thoughts on McCabe’s upcoming hearing.Credit:
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will marry on May 19 at Windsor Castle and have gone against royal tradition by choosing a Saturday to wed. The couple have chosen FA Cup Final day to walk down the aisle even though Harry´s best man will be Prince William, who is also the FA´s President and usually presents its famous trophy to the winners. But crucially May 19 ensures that their wedding will not overshadow the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge´s third child in April and allow her the time to recover.Harry and his fiancee have also chosen not
Democrats seem to be reading George Orwell’s 1984 as an instruction manual, taking to heart the injunction “Ignorance is bliss.” They are very, very unhappy that the privacy of adulterous lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page has been violated with the release of about 3 and half percent of their ten thousand text messages sent on government-owned smart phones, and therefore the property of the American people.Why, people might start to think that Mueller investigation was biased or something, and we can’t have that! Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller collects some of the outrage that the veil has been
Mark Penn, a pollster and former chief strategist for the Clintons, said Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI are facing a "crisis in public confidence." On "The Story" Thursday night, Penn pointed to a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris poll that found 63 percent of voters believe that the FBI has been resisting providing information to Congress on the Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump investigations. 54 percent said Mueller has conflicts of interest that prevent him from doing an unbiased job. Penn noted that those numbers do not reflect recent revelations about Mueller´s Russia probe, including that a top FBI official,
The trailer for Clint Eastwood´s new film about the 2015 French train attack has been released - starring the real American heroes who helped thwart the attack. The 15:17 to Paris is based on a book the three Americans - Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone - wrote about the attack, with the help of writer Jeffrey E. Stern.When Eastwood originally took on the project, he was looking to hire actors to play the threesome - but at the last minute it was decided that the men would play themselves. (Video/Photos) None of three have acting experience, but it doesn´t
Some of Hollywood’s biggest left-wing stars, including Academy Award winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Jane Fonda, and HBO host Bill Maher have donated to a political committee called Flip the 49th! Neighbors in Action — a campaign to unseat Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) in next year’s election. According to a list of donors obtained by The San Diego Union-Tribune, Fonda gave the group $100,000. Maher contributed $15,000. DiCaprio dished out $2,500 and Cheers alum Ted Danson dolled out $1,500. The list also includes a $2,500 donation from the JDM Foundation, an organization the Union-Tribune notes is funded mostly by its founder,
Kimberly Guilfoyle said new revelations about James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe show that the former FBI director "overstepped his bounds." Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, released copies Thursday of the edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized July 2016 statement. The document shows line-by-line edits, including "grossly negligent" being downgraded to "extremely careless." It also shows a change from saying it is “reasonably likely” to merely "possible" that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Clinton’s private email account. "What it looks like is they actually tried to tip the
Two men were killed and six other people were wounded in shootings Wednesday across Chicago.At 9:02 p.m., a man was found shot to death in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side. Officers responding to a call of a person shot in the 700 block of North Trumbull found the 30-year-old with gunshot wounds to his abdomen and back, according to Chicago Police. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released information on the fatality. Earlier Wednesday afternoon, 31-year-old Anthony Johnson was shot and killed
WASHINGTON— Senate Republicans rushed toward votes next week on their sweeping $1.5 trillion tax package, hopeful ailing Sens. John McCain and Thad Cochran will be back and well enough to cast their votes.The 81-year-old McCain is at a local military hospital being treated for the side effects of brain cancer treatment. The 80-year-old Cochran had a non-melanoma lesion removed from his nose earlier this week.Both men missed all Senate votes this week, but their presence will be crucial early next week as the GOP tries to pass the tax bill in the Senate with a razor-thin Republican majority of 52-48
A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill
Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder threatened Republicans in Congress against removing Special Counsel Robert Mueller the day after GOP congressmen grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over Mueller stacking his team of Trump investigators with Hillary Clinton donors and lawyers. Holder issued his threat in a tweet Wednesday morning. Eric Holder, image via screengrab. “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party”
Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly
Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders trolled April Ryan with a homemade pecan pie on Wednesday evening and it was glorious. (Photos) The Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, April Ryan, White House reporter for American Urban Radio networks and CNN analyst, demanded President Donald Trump’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders provide proof she baked a pie she tweeted a photo of on Thanksgiving Day. April Ryan demanded, “Show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it.” So that’s exactly what fearless warrior Sarah Sanders did Wednesday evening! Sarah Sanders
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) is proposing a new motto for the city that takes aim at President Trump. Emanuel, who served as chief of staff under former President Barack Obama, told Stephen Colbert that he has declared Chicago a “Trump-free zone” and joked that its new motto is “A city he’ll never sleep in.” “We don’t want him,” Emanuel said on “The Late Show” Wednesday night. Emanuel told Colbert that multiple Chicago initiatives, such as public scholarships available to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program and environmental regulations, do not line up with the
Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton. In one
Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man of
First, as the week began, came news of an attempted Islamic terrorist attack at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal…and next came everything we needed to know about the Mainstream News Media, which has once again, or finally become a punch line and a laughingstock. We need to exclude Fox News from that leftist cabal. Only Fox News still gives it mostly straight up, mostly fair and balanced. That same evening, visiting family when the Network News just came on, my son said, “Dad, which do you want first, the anti-cop story, the anti-Israel story, or the anti-Trump story?” That was ABC,
Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,
The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as
Senator John McCain’s health appears to be taking a turn for the worst, say sources close to the Arizona lawmaker. In July, McCain was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.“The American Cancer Society puts the five-year survival rate for patients over 55 at about 4 percent,” reports Tucson.com. (Photo) CNN reports: Sources in the Senate tell CNN they have been worried about Sen.
