North Korea to target U.S.
with nuclear, rocket tests

Reuters, by Ju-min Park & Choonsik Yoo

Seoul - North Korea said on Thursday it would carry out further rocket launches and a nuclear test that would target the United States, dramatically stepping up its threats against a country it called its "sworn enemy". (Snip) North Korea is not believed to have the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting the continental United States, although its December launch showed it had the capacity to deliver a rocket that could travel 10,000 km (6,200 miles), potentially putting San Francisco in range, according to an intelligence assessment by South Korea. "We are not disguising the fact

Well, this should help you sleep better tonight, especially with Kerry soon to be Secretary of Defense./S

Next, it´ll be their buddy Iran in the Middle East. AND, are you paying attention to the nukes that may be up for grabs at any time from Pakistan by the Al Qaeda when we leave? Psst. Get Hawaii and mess with 0bama´s posh future vacation plans.

Maybe Vincent van Gogh was right in how he saw " Starry Night."

Note: It is in the constitution that the federal govt provide for the common defence and the Obama administration does everything else but. . .

Progressives are only prepared to deal with imaginary problems like global warming, sea change,snail darters etc.

They much prefer to create problems.

While I would regret the loss of millions of lives in a nuclear attack.....it would almost be worth it just to see what the unicorn riders do about it besides raise taxes and blame republicans.

Their missle will reach San Francisco? That means Hawaii is, ´well within range´. Hmmmmm

I don´t see the down side...

Liberals should outlaw nuclear weapons, and declare Hawaii and San Fran ´Nuke Free Zones´ - that should solve the problem /s - morons all

The North Korean´s don´t need to target a specific city. It is my understanding the types of nuclear devices they are developing are EMP weapons. One or two of these detonated over the US could knock out every electronic device on the ground. They could shut down the country for a long time. Read "one second after."

No leader in his right mind would try to take on Russia and Great Britain at the same time. The first six words of that sentence is why we believe North Korea would never try something so stupid.

Bill Maher, comedian or bigot?
Washington Times, by Armstrong Williams    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 5:22:02 PM     Post Reply
Comedy has many subjects: leaders, governments, things we don’t understand. Regarding that last topic, I suppose it is understandable that comedians pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows them to do so. What is generally not condoned, however, are continuous and sweeping insults aimed at those with differing points of view. The worst forms of prejudice and racism are bred out of this type of one-sided banter. Blacks in this country never were given the chance to defend themselves against claims of being less intelligent than whites during the time of slavery. Jews and non-Aryans never were given a chance to defend

   

 



 
Syria´s Bashar Assad visits recaptured
Christian village on Easter
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 5:16:23 PM     Post Reply
BEIRUT - Syria´s embattled president marked Easter with a tour Sunday of an ancient Christian village recently recaptured by his forces, an important symbolic prize for his government ahead of coming presidential elections he appears poised to contest. President Bashar Assad´s visit to Maaloula, some 40 miles northeast of Damascus, serves a propaganda victory for his government in its quest to be seen as protector of religious minorities as its civil war grinds on. (Snip) Rebels, including fighters from the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, seized Maaloula several times late last year, most recently in December.

Kuwait papers closed
for violating ´plot´ blackout

A Kuwaiti judge has ordered the temporary closure of two newspapers for breaking a news blackout about an alleged coup plot. The independent newspapers, Al Watan and Alam Al Yawm, published details of a videotape said to show former senior officials planning the overthrow of the Gulf state´s leadership. Both papers have been ordered to stop printing for two weeks. The editor of Al Watan said it would appeal against the suspension. He told Reuters news agency: "I do not think we talked about the tape more than any other newspaper." The videotape purportedly contains allegations of a plot to topple the government

Ted Cruz and Rand Paul:
Opposite directions
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 4:33:33 PM     Post Reply
In 2013, freshmen senators Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) seemed like two peas in a pod. Both railed at the NSA, backed the government shutdown, opposed intervention in Syria and championed the tea party faithful. But 2014 has been a different story. Cruz has become a serious, vocal proponent of a tough foreign policy and harsh critic of President Obama’s approach to Iran and Russia. He gave serious speeches on the importance of standing up to Vladimir Putin and on the folly of expecting Iran to give away its nuclear weapons program without stringent sanctions and/or the threat of force.

Tabby named Puddy Cat and its owner
defrauded of $450,000, prosecutors say

A once fat cat is now almost broke, literally. Not the Wall Street-type, but the four-legged, furry variety. A 7-year-old tabby called Puddy Cat is at the center of an extensive embezzlement case out of Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Puddy Cat once stood to inherit part of a trust fund worth at least $450,000, until its owner fell victim to a couple of swindling neighbors, prosecutors said. Puddy Cat belongs to a 74-year-old Brighton woman who is suffering from progressive dementia and living in a nursing home. The woman created the "Puddy Cat Trust" in her will and specified that, upon her death, the tabby was to be cared for

The fracking divide: Mexico’s oil frontier

Batial-1 Well, Mexico - The geological marvel known to Texas oilmen as the Eagle Ford Shale Play is buried deep underground, but at night you can see its outline from space in a twinkling arc that sweeps south of San Antonio toward the Rio Grande. The light radiates from thousands of surface-level gas flares and drilling rigs. It is the glow of one of the most extravagant oil bonanzas in American history, the result of the drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. (Snip) This is a reflection of politics, not geology. The Eagle Ford shale formation is believed to continue hundreds of miles into Mexico,

New York Times columnist David Brooks said Sunday that he believes President Obama’s foreign policy isn’t “tough enough” and that he has a “manhood problem” when it comes to dealing with leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad. Mr. Brooks expanded on Sen. Bob Corker’s earlier comments on “Fox News Sunday” that Mr. Obama is “creating an air of permissiveness” with regards to Russia. (Snip) “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East,” he continued.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
