Kim Jong Un’s sister arrives in South Korea
Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/9/2018 1:16:57 AM

Seoul, South Korea - The plane carrying a high-level North Korean government delegation including leader Kim Jong Un’s sister has arrived in South Korea to attend the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Kim Yo Jong will be the first member of North Korea’s ruling family to set foot in the South since the 1950-53 Korean War. The North Korean officials during their three-day visit beginning Friday will meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who’s trying to use the Olympics as an opportunity to pull North Korea into meaningful talks over its nuclear program.

Comments:
When negotiations fail, Kim Jong-un sends his sister. Translated: Stay in your hidden bunker for the foreseeable future. This, while you threaten the West by moving forward with a delivery system for your nukes.

What is happening between the Koreas is a result of the existence of President Trump.
(He won´t get credit for it, but...)
If NK sees no way to hustle the U.S., the way they did with Jimmy Carter, Dollar Bill Clinton, and Barack Obola, and China is less likely to save them, NK has to move in the direction of their southern brothers.
Thank you, DJT.

Indeed, I wonder how many defectors there will be among the North Koreans going to the Olympics.

Of Crowns and Rings: Images
of Royal Weddings Over a Century
New York Times, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/19/2018 4:46:12     Post Reply
The images of royal weddings are some of the most glamorous in our history books. But the events also have a real sticking power, be it in the memories of those who watched a day unfold or as an opulent footnote to an otherwise dreary history lesson. (Snip) There is one unifying factor: In each case, excited crowds watch two people whose personalities have been deliberately obscured, hidden behind a veil of pomp and propriety. What is it about these fairy tale occasions, filled with pageantry and splendor, that so captures the modern imagination? Perhaps it’s those very ingredients. Here are some images of royal weddings

Tehran - Iran could resume its 20 percent uranium enrichment if the European signatories of the 2015 nuclear deal failed to keep it alive following Washington´s withdrawal, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said on Saturday. "If the other side keeps itself committed to its promises we also will be keeping ourselves to our promises... Our policy is wait and see now ... for just the few weeks time ... There are all kind of possibilities, we can ... start the 20 enrichment," Ali Akbar Salehi told reporters.

Shanghai - China’s air force has landed bombers on islands and reefs in the South China Sea as part of a training exercise in the disputed region, it said in a statement. (Snip) It said the pilot of the H-6K bomber conducted assault training on a designated sea target and then carried out take-offs and landings at an airport in the area, describing the exercise as preparation for “the West Pacific and the battle for the South China Sea”. The notice, published on the PLAAF’s Weibo microblogging account, did not provide the precise location of the exercise. The United States has dispatched warships to disputed areas of the

Are octopuses aliens from outer space

Independent [UK], by Josh Gabbatiss    Original Article

Octopuses are aliens. That’s the claim being made by a team of 33 researchers published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. They are not referring to aliens in a metaphorical sense, but literal aliens from outer space. Since the paper was released on Sunday, a trickle of news coverage has turned into a torrent, with increasingly alarming headlines about octopuses and their extra-terrestrial origins. It will not come as a surprise to many to learn that these claims have been roundly mocked by the scientific community, who have branded the paper – published in Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology – as ridiculous and unscientific.

House fails to pass farm
bill over immigration fight
New York Post, by Bob Fredericks    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/18/2018 1:43:15     Post Reply
House conservatives killed a farm subsidy bill that would have imposed work requirements on food stamp recipients because they didn’t get their way on tough immigration reform. The House Freedom Caucus’ fit of pique was a huge embarrassment to House Speaker Paul Ryan and a bitter pill for other GOP lawmakers who hail from agricultural states. The 213-198 vote killed the work and job training requirements, which were popular with President Trump’s base. But it also delayed farm subsidies, pork barrel cash that Republican lawmakers crave. Ryan took steps to call for a revote in the future but it’s not clear when the measure

Ahead of a scheduled summit with President Donald Trump, North Korean officials have apparently been reading a book he´d probably rather they skip over. Christiane Amanpour, CNN´s chief international correspondent, tweeted on Thursday: "Interesting: North Korea officials are reading ´Fire and Fury´ and ´The Art of the Deal´ to understand President Trump, says Jonathan Powell, who traveled there recently. ´They were very keen to study Donald Trump when I was there in December [and the beginning of this year].´" Powell served for years as chief of staff for former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Stastny says they are about 8 weeks old.

Windsor, England - Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at the royal wedding — stepping in after the father of the bride fell ill just days before the ceremony. Kensington Palace said Friday that Markle´s future father-in-law, the heir to the British throne, would walk the American actress down the aisle at St. George´s Chapel in Windsor for her wedding to Prince Harry. The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way."

Doctors say former Russian spy Sergei Skripal has been discharged from a hospital, more than two months after he was poisoned with a nerve agent. Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in the English city of Salisbury on March 4, and spent weeks in critical condition. Yulia recovered more quickly than her father and was discharged last month. Salisbury District Hospital said Friday that both patients had now been released. They have been taken to an undisclosed location for their safety. Britain says the pair was poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent and that Russia was behind the attack. Moscow denies it,

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

A recently engaged couple from Florida were kidnapped at gunpoint, robbed and severely beaten on a trip to Mexico when they were supposed to be looking at wedding venues. Frank and Jennifer Massabki said they were lucky to survive and are still reeling from the terrifying ordeal in Mexico City in May last year. Jennifer, who was almost raped by one of their attackers, suffered a broken nose in the ordeal and had to undergo emergency surgery in a US hospital days later. Horrifying photos show them sitting at a police station in their blood-soaked clothes soon after they managed to escape.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

Attorney Joe diGenova predicted that both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions´ days are numbered at the Department of Justice during a telephone interview with Newsmax´s Howie Carr Wednesday. DiGenova´s claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation". The report has been interpreted by many as an attempt by sources within the "Deep State" to cushion the blow of the imminent DOJ inspector general report, which is expected to be explosive.

A family-of-five say they have never been happier after selling their five-bedroom house and everything in it - in order to move into a 180sq ft trailer. Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

Starbucks´ day of racial-bias training for its baristas can´t come soon enough. With less than two weeks to go before the coffee chain closes stores nationwide to educate its nearly 175,000 workers on how not to discriminate against others, Starbucks (SBUX) this week found itself apologizing for doing just that. (Tweet) The apology on social media came after a customer at a Starbucks in La Cañada Flintridge, California, found the word "Beaner" -- a derogatory term for Mexicans -- printed on his coffee drink instead of "Pedro," his name. A friend of Pedro's who translated for him told CBS Los Angeles that his "friend was also sad"
