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.
President Donald J. Trump’s supporters are immensely loyal to the president, backing the commander-in-chief not just with their words, but their wallets as well. In fact, donations to the Republican National Committee have skyrocketed so much under President Trump, even the liberal Washington Post has taken notice. The Washington Post published a story on Friday highlighting the millions of dollars that Trump supporters have given to the RNC in the form of low-dollar donations – donations of $200 or less. In 2017, more than $40 million worth of donations to the RNC have come from low-dollar donations. That’s 60% of
The Justice Department fulfilled President Donald Trump’s promise to provide clear guidance on the administration’s commitment to restore robust protection of religious freedom across all federal agencies and executive departments Friday. This fix was sorely needed in the wake of President Barack Obama’s administration actions that harmed Americans’ religious liberty. The May 4 executive order that Trump signed in the Rose Garden and Friday’s guidance from the Justice Department clarified what should have been clear all along: that as Americans, we have the right not only to worship according to our consciences, but to publicly live out our beliefs. This
A US official says investigators believe the Las Vegas shooter may have hired a prostitute in the days before the shooting, and they are interviewing other call girls as they look for clues into his motive. The official said on Friday that prostitutes are among the hundreds of leads they are pursuing as part of their investigation into Stephen Paddock. The official, who was briefed by federal law enforcement officials, wasn´t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. They also revealed that Paddock and his girlfriend Marilou Danley visited the Middle
Just two or three generations ago, most Americans understood that George Orwell’s classics Animal Farm and 1984 were written to explain how freedom is lost to totalitarianism and the intolerance that accompanies it. “Big Brother,” a term still casually used to describe an all-knowing governing authority, comes right out of 1984. In the state that Orwell describes, all subjects are continually reminded that “Big Brother is watching you,” by way of constant surveillance through the pervasive use of “telescreens” by the ruling class. Orwell’s warnings about totalitarianism written in novel form in Animal Farm and 1984 came shortly after Freidrich
The United States Catholic bishops praised the Trump administration’s expansion of conscience exemptions for the HHS contraception mandate, calling the move a “return to common sense.” In a joint statement, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, President of the Bishops’ conference (USCCB), and Archbishop William E. Lori, Chairman of the Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, said that the decision to provide a broad religious and moral exemption to the HHS mandate “corrects an anomalous failure by federal regulators that should never have occurred and should never be repeated.” The story that has dominated religious liberty debates in the U.S. since 2011
President Trump lashed out at late-night comedians and the media on Twitter Saturday morning, suggesting that Republicans aren’t given “equal time” to Democrats on television. “Late Night host[s] are dealing with the Democrats for their very ´unfunny´ & repetitive material, always anti-Trump!” Trump tweeted. “Should we get Equal Time?” “More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?” he added. (Tweets) Trump’s tweets came about an hour after Fox News’s “Fox and Friends” aired a segment accusing late-night comedians like Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel
Over just one month of player, coach, and owner protests of the flag and National Anthem, the National Football League has gone from America´s sport to the least liked of top professional and college sports, according to a new poll. From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport, according to the Winston Group survey provided exclusively to Secrets. Worse for football, which was already seeing lower TV ratings and
President Donald Trump punched back hard against the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who accused him of insufficient concern about her island. In doing so, Trump shows that he learned from President George W. Bush´s mistakes. Bush 43 seemed to expect a certain level of fairness and civility from the media. When, for example, Sen. Ted Kennedy, about the prewar Iraq intelligence, said, "Before the war, week after week after week after week, we were told lie after lie after lie after lie," the Bush White House did not aggressively push back against that venomous assertion. When critics made
At a film workshop for students from across the country in 2013, then-first lady Michelle Obama praised Harvey Weinstein as a “wonderful human being.” Weinstein has come under fire after The New York Times reported the Miramax head has been paying women to keep quiet about sexual assault allegations against him for decades. The film mogul has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats for years. CNN reports that Weinstein has made more than 185 donations to Democratic candidates and liberal organizations totaling more than $350,000. (Graph) Four years ago, Michelle Obama praised Weinstein at a White House event.
On Wednesday, country singer Eric Church put on an emotional tribute for the victims of the Las Vegas massacre while performing at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Church was the Friday headliner at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, which was targeted by a gunman Sunday night, resulting in 58 killed and nearly 500 others injured. Shaken up from the attack on his fans, the musical talent told his audience that he initially didn´t want to show up on Wednesday, but changed his mind when he saw Las Vegas massacre survivor Heather Melton appear on CNN wearing an Eric Church
Harvard University Professor Jonathan L. Walton called the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization” during a speech at the campus’s Memorial Church. (Video) “We have to have the courage to call the NRA exactly what it has become — a domestic terrorist organization that places profit above the lives of the American people,” Dr. Jonathan Walton said at the Memorial Church of Harvard University. Walton’s remarks were made available as a blog post on Harvard’s website. Walton, a Professor of Christian Morals and a minister at the Memorial Church at Harvard University, argued that America is “sick.” “This nation is sick.
The Department of Homeland Security´s Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency rebuked Gov. Jerry Brown, D-Calif., on Friday for enacting a statewide sanctuary law for illegal immigrants, and said the decision will prompt a higher number of raids that target that population. "Governor Jerry Brown´s decision to sign SB54 and make California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens – including those who have committed crimes – will undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing its federally mandated mission. The governor is simply wrong when he claims otherwise," acting ICE Director Tom Homan said in a statement. "ICE will have no
In a television interview broadcast on Ireland’s ‘’Late Late Show’’, former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, opened up on the unfolding of events on election night 2016. (Snip) Whilst discussing the inauguration of President Trump, asked if she wanted to scream, Clinton told RTÉ, “Oh, I did. But that was a common occurrence in those days. You know, scream into the pillow when I saw what was happening.” “I would have been disappointed and really unhappy if I had lost to a normal Republican. But to lose to someone who I believed profoundly was not ready for
NFL ticket prices have plummeted in the wake of the uproar over the national anthem protests, dropping for the first time this year below the 2016 season’s prices. An analysis released Friday by CNBC found that ticket prices during the first three games of the 2017 season enjoyed a 20-40 percent increase over last year, but then skidded in Week 4 and actually dropped by 2 percent in Week 5. The timing coincides with the uproar following President Trump’s criticism of the protests on Sept. 22, which prompted nearly 200 players to sit or take a knee during the national
NBC executives not involved in her hiring are furious over Megyn Kelly´s ´obscene´ $23 million salary for her tanking morning show and think it´s a slap in the face to other established stars at the network, DailyMailTV has exclusively revealed. Although it was rumored the former Fox News anchor was only being paid $17 million for her new role at NBC, Kelly will actually line her pockets with a total of $69 million over the course of three years for swapping politics for talk show antics. Her hefty salary has drawn the scorn of senior NBC and Comcast executives who believe the
Deadly vehicle crashes spiked in the USA for a second straight year in 2016, hitting a nine-year high despite the adoption of new safety features and investments in partially self-driving cars. Key reasons: speeding, not wearing seat belts and a rise in motorcycle deaths. Car accidents killed 37,461 people in 2016, up 5.6% from 2015, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data released Friday. The disastrous upward trend marks a reversal after fatalities fell in six of the seven years from 2007 to 2014.
WILKES-BARRE — The Mother Nature Vegan Cuisine food truck is no more and its owner finds herself in the middle of a firestorm for insensitive comments about the people killed in the Las Vegas massacre. Delinda Jensen, 60, has received death threats after posting this Facebook comment: “Yes I am jaded. Fifty nine meat eaters dead. How many animals will live because of this?” She then made a comment under the post that said: “I don’t give a (expletive) about carnists anymore.” Jensen, a former adjunct history professor at Marywood University, said Thursday she is living in fear since her post set off
A Christian pro-life group that was recently ejected from a Seattle coffee shop over its local activism is attracting hundreds of thousands of Facebook views after footage of the encounter was posted online. Members of Abolish Human Abortion recently decided to order drinks in Seattle’s Bedlam coffee shop after posting and distributing pro-life pamphlets in the local community. Activists who joined Caleb Head and Caytie Davis on Oct. 1 were soon berated and told the leave when they were identified. “I’m gay. You have to leave,” owner Ben Borgman said in the video. “Are you denying us service?” Mr. Davis asked.
INDIANAPOLIS – The T-shirts were only the beginning. In an effort related to the NFL’s recent anthem protests, the Indianapolis Colts on Friday announced the creation of a fund intended to support charities “working to promote equality, improve relationships between law enforcement and the community and provide opportunities for minorities,” according to a team press release. Team owner Jim Irsay contributed the first $100,000, the team announced The fund’s creation comes less than a week after the team made a silent statement with T-shirts it wore during warmups for last Sunday’s nationally-televised game against the Seattle Seahawks. On the shirts
California, with a stroke of Gov. Jerry Brown’s pen, just became an entire sanctuary state for illegals. The state should secede. And if it won’t? The remaining 49 should push it into the ocean. Well, not really. But the remaining 49, under the helm of the feds, should stop sending any type of tax dollar California’s way. Perhaps a wall’s in order. Perhaps we’re building in the wrong spot. (Snip) Senate Bill 54, the “California Values Act,” will take effect in January. It prevents local law enforcement officials from asking immigrants about their status, and bans police from complying with detainers requested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs
Well, we have another instance of someone thinking that people who were shot at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas deserved it. That would be Greg Morelli of Max’s Deli in Highland Park, Illinois. The Chicago-area deli became the focus of controversy when Morelli tweeted, “Soon as I heard it was country music, I felt relief. White people shooting white people isn’t [sic] terror…it’s community outreach.” That tweet has since been deleted. It spurred a backlash, which prompted Morelli to issue an apology, which wasn’t well received. This isn’t his first he’s caused a firestorm with this
Long Branch — The statue stands in a small park near a strip of businesses owned primarily by blacks and Latinos. The 6-foot tall monument to Christopher Columbus was erected in Long Branch´s Slocum Park in 1961, when the city was predominantly white. More than half a century later, the city has seen an influx of Latino immigrants, and at least one Hispanic group would like to see the statue moved to a different location. "The man is not a national hero, and the statue is displayed in the center of a black and Hispanic neighborhood as if he did something really
Even before its feud over the national anthem with President Trump, the NFL Players Association wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist advocacy groups. Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society. A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open
When a scandal forces liberals to criticize both Hollywood and the Obamas, you know it’s bad. Hollywood and Washington are both freaked out over a New York Times report about mega-producer Harvey Weinstein and allegations of sexual harassment over nearly three decades. Several liberals raised a key point: wasn’t this the same producer that gave Malia Obama an internship at the Weinstein company? The Daily Beast also asked: If Hollywood knew about Weinstein’s supposed harassment, why didn’t they speak out against him? Former New York Times writer Frank Rich, now executive producer for Veep, tweeted on October 6, “Biggest mystery
