Yesterday President Trump called Xi Jinping; CTH noted the pattern. The reason – today President Trump would be messaging toward Beijing. [There is a difference between talking to Xi Jinping, and talking to Beijing.] Well, did anyone notice President Trump referencing the post WWII “Marshall Plan” today during his U.N. Speech? And…. (tweet)Sept. 19 (UPI) — China’s foreign ministry is urging other countries to return to the “spirit” of the six-party talks and seeking more diplomatic cooperation on North Korea. Beijing’s diplomatic spokesman Lu Kang said Tuesday that China places value on the Sept. 19 joint statement of the six-party talks, South
Leftists/Liberals and GOPe-ers "talking" with psychotic liars over the last 30 years got us Nork nukes and Iran´s not-yet-but-soon nukes, all to be used against our cities.
The time for talking is done.
The time for squeezing reallllly hard anyone who does business with Nork or Iran is here. Anyone. We still have more power than all the other great-powers combined; and several of them are on our side anyway.
The time for taking out Rocket Boy is approaching fast.
Some war now, or total war soon.
This is not a choice. It is reality. It is a necessity if we want to protect our American children.
U.S. Border Patrol agents recently made two separate arrests of juvenile recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for attempting to smuggle illegal aliens across the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, on Thursday published a press release detailing the arrests of two so-called "Dreamers," illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors who receive legal protections under DACA, who are nationals from Guatemala and Mexico. On October 4, 2017, Border Patrol agents arrested a juvenile attempting to smuggle two illegal aliens. Agents at the Border Patrol Checkpoint
SANTA ROSA, Calif. — With towering flames bearing down, one victim delayed escape in hopes of saving his new truck — but he could not find the keys. An elderly couple slept as danger erupted, not waking until it was too late to flee down their one-lane road. Another couple, who barely missed their chance to drive away, huddled in a pool, surrounded by fire and choking smoke; he survived, but she did not. As widely varied stories emerged of how people died in the wind-driven fires that have ravaged Northern California, the element common to each tragedy — and to
A penguin colony in Antarctica has suffered a massive breeding failure, with only two chicks surviving the disaster. Terre Adélie (Adélie Land) is home to more than 18,000 pairs of Adélie penguins, but this year almost all the seabirds´ babies starved to death,(Snip) The World Wildlife Fund said unseasonably extensive amounts of sea ice around the colony in East Antarctica had forced the adult penguins to travel further than normal to forage for food. "This devastating event contrasts with the image that many people might have of penguins," said Rod Downie, Head of Polar Programmes at WWF. "It´s more like ´Tarantino does Happy
It is with great reluctance that I must take issue with my very esteemed friend Andy McCarthy, in this case with his treatment of the Steele Dossier, which makes a lot of sensational allegations against President Trump of compromising past relations with Russia and its leaders. The dossier is named after retired British MI-6 Russian specialist Christopher Steele, was compiled initially at the request of the shady political-interference and espionage operation Fusion GPS, was paid for by anti-Trump Republicans, and then, after Trump had secured the Republican nomination, was financed by the Clinton campaign. Andy has suddenly determined that this
President Trump’s decision not to certify that Iran is complying with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal simply acknowledges reality. And if this causes the agreement to collapse, it will be a testament to the political weakness of its principal author. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal was erected on a foundation of sand. Former president Barack Obama had a weak hand with Congress and could not muster the domestic political capital to conclude a durable formal treaty with Iran. So, he cut corners. His team cobbled together an arcane system whereby the White House must issue
Forty-five victims are still hospitalized as a result of injuries sustained in the Las Vegas massacre on October 1, Las Vegas Metropolitan Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a news conference Friday. In total, Lombardo said, there were 546 reported injuries from the incident. Of those, 501 people have been discharged from medical facilities. (Snip)Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd at a music festival just 40 seconds after shooting a Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino security guard -- not six minutes later, the resort´s owner said Thursday, disputing a police timeline.

Jan Pascoe and her husband, John, were trapped. The world was on fire, and Jan was hyperventilating from fear. Then they remembered their neighbors’ pool. “You’ve got to calm down, Jan,” she told herself. “You can’t go underwater and hyperventilate.” At 12:40 a.m. Monday, Jan called 911. She reached a dispatcher. “We are going to get into the neighbors’ pool, should we do this?’ The dispatcher said, “Get anywhere safe.” “Please. We will be in the pool,” Jan replied. “This is where we are.” “In my naivete, all night long,” she would tell me later, “I thought someone would come to get us.” Jan, 65, and her
In the days since The New York Times broke the story of allegations of decades of harassment and assault by Harvey Weinstein, torrents of heart-wrenching stories have poured forth from at least 30 women who say they were victimized by Mr. Weinstein. So have unstinting condemnations from many who worked with Mr. Weinstein or benefited from their relationship with him, both in film and in Democratic political circles. “Behavior like this is appalling and unacceptable,” said Anna Wintour, the artistic director of Condé Nast, breaking her silence on the issue.(Snip) Ms. Wintour has put stars of Mr. Weinstein’s films on more than
While Establishment Republicans in the Senate will attempt to publicly dismiss it as grassroots silliness, behind closed doors they are far more worried. The same populist movement that put Donald Trump into the White House is now coming for them and first on that list is current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Via Breitbart: Conservative Leaders Urge Mitch McConnell to Resign The Tea Party Patriots, FreedomWorks, and the Senate Conservatives Fund called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the rest of Senate leadership to resign over their inability to pass President Donald Trump’s agenda, which includes repealing and
At 5:00am on Friday the media will be allowed to discuss the White House Iran Policy Fact Sheet (below). At approximately 11:30am U.S. media will begin reporting on a previously on-the-record, off camera (no audio), briefing on Iran policy with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Advisor McMaster . At 12:45pm President Trump will deliver public remarks outlining the Iran Policy. PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMPS NEW STRATEGY ON IRAN “It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction.” ~ President Donald J. Trump” President Donald J. Trump, in
The dumpster fire that is the Harvey Weinstein scandal will continue to burn awhile longer, as victims and outraged industry members weigh in with statements of outrage over the sickening allegations of sexual harassment and rape. Yet, already the industry has turned to the discussion of the dire future prospects of The Weinstein Company, even after it gets a new name and Harvey Weinstein is scrubbed from the credits of films and TV projects.Late last week, the town seemed willing to hang in with the production company if Weinstein was fired, giving co-chairman Bob Weinstein and COO David Glasser the
NEW YORK—Wherever you stand on the Wetback Issue, you’re no longer allowed to say the following sentence: “Mexicans only take the dirty jobs that Americans won’t do.” I’ve been hearing this for thirty years. Enough. It’s not only untrue, it’s so easily disproven that you don’t need Keynesian economics or Milton Friedman economics or even the economics they taught in that glossy college freshman textbook that had the hokey supply-and-demand graphs in it. You can basically blow this out of the water with Pre-Kindergarten Economics. Principle Numero Uno: If there aren’t any Mexicans to pick the lettuce, that doesn’t mean the owner of
The truth can no longer be ignored: Donald Trump is dangerously unfit to be president and could lead the nation to unthinkable disaster. So what are we going to do about it? The White House “has become an adult day care center,” where the president’s senior aides spend “every single day .?.?. trying to contain him.” That terrifying bit of information was disclosed Sunday by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), whose decision not to run for reelection has freed him to point out that the emperor is indeed naked. “Look, except for a few people, the vast
The National Football League announced on Friday that it wants to use its platform to raise awareness for social justice issues and that it does not plan to mandate that players stand for the U.S. national anthem. Commissioner Roger Goodell and the head of the NFL Players Association are expected to meet with team owners this next week in New York, where they will discuss possible solutions on how to end the national anthem protests, Reuters reported. “(Goodell) has a plan that he is going to present to owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and
President Trump will halt subsidy payments to insurers who sell coverage under Obamacare — a move that would deal a critical blow to the program, the White House confirmed Thursday night. “Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare,” the White House said in a statement. Trump has decided to end the payments — which cost about $7 billion this year — after the GOP failed numerous efforts to repeal Obamacare on Capitol Hill. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
A National Football League (NFL) player says he would rather lose his job than be forced to stand during the national anthem. “No, I will be done playing football,” Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday when asked about the issue, according to ESPN. ESPN reported that WSMV producer Matt Parker asked Matthews whether he would stay in the locker room for the song if the NFL created a rule mandating they stand or face punishment. Matthews tweeted out a response before quickly deleting it and hitting the field for the Titans’ Thursday afternoon practice. The player – who is the team’s leading receiver –
Tennessee Titans player Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday that he’ll quit the NFL if the league implements a rule forcing players to stand during the anthem. “No I will be done playing football,” Matthews tweeted and ultimately deleted when asked if he would be willing to face punishment for not standing if a new rule is implemented. (Snip) This is a very dumb tweet, for multiple reasons. Matthews is forcing himself into a corner. What will he do if a new rule is passed, and the Titans call his bluff? He’s going to be out of a job that pays millions simply
Hillary Clinton today falsely called Donald Trump an ´admitted sex assaulter´ and compared him to disgraced alleged sex abuser Harvey Weinstein. The failed Democratic presidential candidate, who received thousands in campaign funding from Weinstein, told the BBC´s Andrew Marr ´we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.´ (Snip) ´After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office. ´There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic.´ And asked about allegations of sexual misconduct levelled at her husband
NBC late-night host Seth Meyers on Wednesday night burned bridges with any remaining viewers of his who still support President Trump, telling them to go away and flipping them off. Inspired by Eminem´s anti-Trump freestyle rap at the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night, Meyers told Trump supporters to "get off the fence" and pick a side between the president and his show -- which he noted "constantly mocks and denigrates everything about [Trump]." "I know it´s a tough call," the smarmy host continued. "But the time has come to make a decision." He then rapped, "My name is Seth and I´m
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in talks with Columbia University to take on a formal role at the school. Multiple sources on Thursday told the New York Daily News that Clinton, a two-time failed presidential candidate, is also talking with Columbia about housing her archives at the Ivy League institution, the New York Daily News reported. The former law professor may take on the role of "University Professor," which would allow Clinton to lecture in multiple schools and departments without the requirement of a strict course load, a source told the Daily News. With this vague title, Clinton could potentially
No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because
Former President Barack Obama’s foundation mission is “to inspire and empower people to change their world.” So who better to fire up his audience for democratic change than a man whose family has headed the British state by divine right for the better part of 1,000 years? Royal heartthrob Prince Harry — fifth in line to the British throne, behind his niece, nephew, brother and father — is coming to Chicago on Oct. 31 to “empower participants with tools to create positive change in their communities,” according to the Obama Foundation, which will host Harry at its inaugural summit. While it’s true that
Despite Chicago’s alarming, if select, murder statistics and routine singling out by President Donald Trump for gun violence, this lakeside metropolis was just ranked one of the safest cities in the world. The Economist Intelligence Unit, a London-based research firm affiliated with the Economist magazine, named Chicago to its 2017 Safe Cities Index, issued Thursday — one of only three US cities to crack the top 20 — largely based on advances in digital security. The annual ranking assesses 60 global cities using four factors: personal safety, health security, digital security and the safety of infrastructure. Chicago, at 19th-safest, narrowly trailed the other
Porn King Larry Flynt and Hustler Magazine is offering $10 million for information leading to the impeachment of Donald J. Trump as president.
