North Korea is still making nukes, and
the Trump admin is taking a harder line
NBC News, by Courtney Kube, Carol E. Lee    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/11/2018 12:23:55 AM     Post Reply
Washington - As President Donald Trump issues a steady stream of praise for Kim Jong Un in interviews and on Twitter, a steady stream of evidence that North Korea is still making nuclear weapons has pushed his administration to take a much more aggressive stance toward Pyongyang. (Snip) During the three months since the historic Singapore summit and Trump´s proclamation that North Korea intends to denuclearize, North Korea has built structures to obscure the entrance to at least one warhead storage facility, according to the officials. The U.S. has also observed North Korean workers moving warheads out of the facility,

AUBURN, Wash. -- Human decency took a back seat in Auburn Saturday when a man and two teens left a clerk suffering a heart attack to die, but not before helping themselves to the cash in the till and several other items in the store, police said. "It just blows my mind. It breaks our hearts," said store manager Angela Sharapova. "We can’t believe that this happened." It was just after 5:30 p.m. when a man and two teen boys went into a Shell station on Auburn Way South. One of the teens grabbed a pepperoni stick and began to eat it,

Pope Francis should not resign over allegations he mishandled a sexual abuse scandal, said Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump´s former political strategist who is close to prominent Catholic conservatives. However, Bannon told Reuters he was working on setting up an independent, non-partisan tribunal to investigate decades of scandals within the U.S. Church, warning that dioceses across the country faced financial ruin because of the wrongdoing.



Why these 9/11 monsters
still haven’t faced a trial
New York Post, by Max Jaeger    Original Article

They say the wheels of justice turn slowly — but now they’ve ground to a virtual halt. Seventeen years after they helped murder 2,977 innocents in the worst terrorist attack on US soil, five 9/11 suspects — including self-avowed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — have not faced trial. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for all five men and have attempted for years to try the case, but a constantly shifting venue, questions over coerced evidence and the limitations of holding trials at Guantanamo Bay have slowed the case to a crawl. Victims’ families say the legal limbo puts them through hell.

FBI Leak Strategy to Damage
Trump after Election

Newly released documents obtained by Congress reveal an “apparent systemic culture of media leaking” among high-level FBI and Justice Department officials, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) charged in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Monday. In the letter, Meadows said a review of the new documents raised "grave concerns" that the officials were leaking unverified material related to ongoing investigations to the press in an effort to damage President Trump early in his presidency. Two text messages, in particular, exchanged in April 2017 between now-fired FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page, raised alarm bells, according

Dr. Leslie Norins is willing to hand over $1 million of his own money to anyone who can clarify something: Is Alzheimer´s disease, the most common form of dementia worldwide, caused by a germ? By "germ" he means microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. In other words, Norins, a physician turned publisher, wants to know if Alzheimer´s is infectious. It´s an idea that just a few years ago would´ve seemed to many an easy way to drain your research budget on bunk science.

As Hurricane Florence barreled toward the Southeast as a Category 4 storm, governors in the Carolinas and Virginia issued mandatory evacuation orders on Monday — affecting hundreds of thousands of people. The most sweeping order came in South Carolina, where Gov. Henry McMaster gave the entire coastline until noon on Tuesday to leave — a mandate potentially impacting as many as a million people. "We know that this evacuation order is going to be inconvenient for some people," Gov. Henry McMaster said at a news conference on Monday afternoon, "but we do not want to risk one South Carolinian’s life."



The White House staff snake pit

Call it the "Omarosa Effect.” If you work in the White House, you now have to leave your phone in your office if you are going to a meeting in the Situation Room. That new policy comes on the heels of Manigault Newman releasing more secretly recorded audiotapes of conversations she had during the year she spent in the White House. It also comes amid an ongoing witch hunt -- to borrow a term -- over who wrote an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times that was scathingly critical of the President.

Hurricane Florence has rapidly intensified into a Category 4 major hurricane south-southeast of Bermuda and is likely to lash the U.S. East Coast later this week with life-threatening storm surge, destructive winds and massive inland rainfall flooding in one of the strongest strikes on record for this part of the East Coast. If you´re in the East Coast threat zone, now is the time to develop or firm up your hurricane preparedness plan and be ready to implement it if necessary. Residents in coastal areas should follow evacuation orders from local officials because of the potential for life-threatening storm-surge flooding.

Grassley moves to set up committee

Grassley´s office on Monday sent out an agenda for a business meeting the committee will have on Thursday. Kavanaugh´s nomination is included as one of roughly two dozen judicial nominations that could get a vote. The move means Kavanaugh´s nomination could get a vote as soon as this week. But Democrats are expected to delay the vote until next week, meaning Kavanaugh´s nomination will likely be taken up by the committee on Sept. 20. Under committee rules, any one senator can delay a nomination by a week when it´s on the agenda for the first time, as Kavanaugh´s nomination

Jordan Spieth shot a 3-over 73 in the final round of the 2018 BMW Championship and finished No. 31 in the FedEx Cup points race. Only the top 30 in the FedEx Cup rankings move on to the Tour Championship at East Lake in two weeks. This is significant because it´s the first time Spieth has missed the Tour Championship as a professional, but it´s also significant because Spieth will end the season with only 24 tournaments played. (Snip) The PGA Tour has a rule called the "strength of field regulation," which requires golfers to either

The monkeypox virus has been diagnosed in the UK for the first time, according to Public Health England (PHE). The disease, which is usually found in central and west Africa, is similar to smallpox, and can be deadly. One individual is confirmed to have monkeypox. They were staying in a naval base in Cornwall, before being transferred to the expert infectious disease unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London. The most common symptom of monkey pox is the “eruption” of skin rashes all over the body, that appear as fluid-filled blisters. The patient is a resident of Nigeria

The distraught son of a late California scientist is suing a cryogenics firm and claims the lab wrongly cremated his father´s body and preserved only his head. Kurt Pilgeram claims in a new lawsuit against the Scottsdale, Arizona-based Alcor Life Extension Foundation that he received a package containing Dr. Laurence Pilgeram´s cremated body - which was allegedly against the family´s agreement. Legal documents obtained by The Telegraph state that Kurt opened the package that ´purportedly contained his father´s cremated remains, except allegedly for his father´s head.´ Laurence was 90 when he died from an apparent cardiac

Chairman of the Council Of Economic Advisers, Kevin Hassert, participated in the White House press briefing to counter left-wing claims the current economy is simply a continuation of trends. Kevin Hasset described former President Obama’s notion “laughable” and presented a series of intuitive trend charts showing how Obama’s economic trend was downward. The election of President Trump resulted in a “statistically significant” upward deviation and inflection in the graphic trends charts. Mr. Hassett cogently goes through ISM Purchasing Managers’ index, durable goods, capital spending, employment and other statistics before and after Trump’s election date to display how ‘America First’ MAGAnomic

WASHINGTON — Control of Congress and the future of Donald Trump’s presidency are on the line as the primary season closes this week, jump-starting a two-month sprint to Election Day that will test Democrats’ ability to harness opposition to Trump and determine whether the Republican president can get his supporters to the polls. For both parties, the stakes are exceedingly high. After crushing defeats in 2016, Democrats open the fall campaign brimming with confidence about their prospects for retaking the House, which would give them power to open a wide swath of investigations into Trump or even launch impeachment

(Video) - Former independent counsel Ken Starr writes in his new memoir that he considered -- but ultimately abandoned -- the idea of perjury charges against then-first lady Hillary Clinton after her “preposterous” deposition with investigators in 1995. “I was upset over Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was even considering bringing the matter before the Washington grand jury for possible indictment on perjury,” Starr writes in “Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation,” which hits bookshelves Tuesday. Fox News obtained an advance copy of the book. In it, Starr recounts a Jan. 22, 1995, deposition with both

Sen. Kamala Harris of California is being condemned for leading an attempt to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh – this time with a deceptively edited video of a portion of his Senate confirmation hearings. The California Democrat tweeted an edited video of Kavanaugh’s response to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s questions about the judge’s 2015 dissent from denial of hearing en banc in the case of Priests for Life v. HHS: Kavanaugh chooses his words very carefully, and this is a dog whistle for going after birth control. He was nominated for the purpose of taking

Donald Trump´s press secretary Sarah Sanders said the US president had received a "very warm, very positive letter" from Kim. She told reporters that a military parade in Pyongyang on Sunday was a sign of progress in talks on denuclearisation because it did not feature any long-range nuclear missiles. The White House is now preparing for a possible second crunch summit between the two leaders. The pair met in June this year, the first such meeting between serving US and North Korean leaders.

The US State Department has announced it is ordering the closure of the Washington mission of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), a move that has drawn strong reaction from Palestinians. "We have permitted the PLO office to conduct operations that support the objective of achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Monday. "However, the PLO has not taken steps to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel,” she stated.

A famed Broadway actress is joining Hollywood’s crusade against President Trump – by asking for president-assassinator John Wilkes Booth. On Sunday, TMZ asked 94-year-old television and Broadway actress Carole Cook (Sixteen Candles, 42nd Street) about President Trump and a recent performance of Frozen. During the musical’s curtain call, one actor grabbed and threw away a “Trump 2020” banner from an audience member. While Cook hadn’t heard of the incident, she responded, “Where is John Wilkes Booth when you need him?” Her husband, Tom Troupe, explained who Booth was: “He killed presidents,” or, more particularly, he shot President Abraham Lincoln in

Fresh off his headline-grabbing -- and controversial -- turn in last week´s hearings on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, U.S. Sen. Cory Booker visited New Jersey on Monday to continue railing against President Donald Trump´s pick. Booker and the state´s other Democrat senator, Robert Menendez, stood together in a New Brunswick church to question Kavanaugh´s record -- or at least what´s known of it. The senators accused Republicans, who control Congress, of rushing through Kavanaugh´s nomination even though the National Archives have cleared a small portion of documents related to the judge´s record on the bench or

Gov. Cuomo wanted to make one thing perfectly clear Sunday: The new bridge named after his dad is not in any danger from a collapse of the neighboring Tappan Zee Bridge it replaced.

Tony Bennet’s famous song about those cable cars that climb half-way to the stars leaves out the fact that once you hop off one of those rickety tourist traps you have to tip-toe through a minefield of used soup kitchen free lunches laid down by the city’s army of ubiquitous vagrants. But maybe you’ll get lucky and step on a discarded needle instead of a former baloney sandwich. Enter the search term “San Francisco feces map” into Google and it comes back with 1,040,000 results.

Just in time to remind America why voters elected Donald Trump president two years ago, ex-President Barack Obama emerged from political exile last week. Pompous, insufferable, self-enthralled, cliched and uninspiring, he picked up right where he left off. Reliving his eight-year campaign that cost over 1,000 Democrat politicians their seats, Mr. Obama put on his psychiatrist cap and declared our current politics mentally unwell. This November, he lectured, is “a chance to restore some sanity in our politics.”
