Report: Kim Jong-Un Killed His Uncle
by Feeding Him to Starving Dogs

Breitbart´s InstaBlog, by Elizabeth Sheld

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/3/2014 9:39:15 AM

According to a detailed report, Kim Jong Un fed his Uncle Jang Song Thaek to a pack of hungry dogs, a deviation from the traditional method of execution by firing squad. "Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called "quan jue", or execution by dogs." The report, appearing in a Chinese controlled newspaper, stated that the "execution" lasted for one hour and was supervised by Kim Jong Un and "300 senior officials."

What...you mean Dennis Rodham wasn´t there with his buddy Kim to witness this barbaric act? I guess Kim saves the Potemkin basketball games just for Dennis. Why are we still providing any food assistance to this barbaric regime? Cut those funds and direct them toward technical training of the unemployed here in the U.S. But I guess King Obama is too busy snorkeling in his Pacific Paradise to care about any of this.

Grandson´s common core paper on Kim Jong-Un article tells about his "rebranding" of the country. Alowing women to wear pants and people to have french fries and pizza! I´ve been showing him all these articles. Teachers are as clueless I think!

#3, that is why Common Core is so dangerous.

Why does a semi-civilized world allow this deranged butcher to stay in power?

Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Mugabe, and others like this dim witted troll in North Korea are indictments of humanity.

But the worst of all is happening right before our eyes--with more than 50 million innocent children murdered in their mothers´ wombs--and celebrated and paid for by American citizens.

God will not judge this country well.

What comes around goes around, The uncle and his aids were deeply involved in the brutal treatment of the N. Korea people for many years, and at the end got what he deserved. Let the brutal leadership kill each other off until someone puts a bullet in Kim or bomb under his train.

No sympathy for the Devil, here. The uncle WAS a devil.

Now should someone revoke Rodman´s Passport while he is in N. Korea.

Circle of life for dictators. Fed to the dogs is a quicker way to put them in that fertilizer heap they reap.

As an aside: Something to remember when you may fight them as an enemy (rules of engagement) and the horrific cruelty that their leaders have inflicted on their own people.

Perhaps this will be their Tipping Point to remove this loathsome regime.
Query: Does South Korea want to reunify and absorb the costs associated with it like Germany did?
Or do the South Koreans want to rely upon our troops and a 60 year armistice?

Kim merely axed his uncle and the aides to "wok some dogs" for him...

In NorKdumb, it´s a sure sign of demotion to be axed to wok the dogs.

Apparently things went haywire with a mistranslation...
someone brought in dozens of "Alpha Dogs" that were really "Alpo Dogs"...
the dogs wanted all meat...
and not a speck of cereal.
Very quickly, as things got out of hand, these dogs turned into...
no-cereal killers...

In a nice touch...
theme music was played during the festivities, er...
during the ceremonies...
it was "Who Let the Dogs Out? Who? Hu?"...
apparently it was a Chinese pirated copy of the smash hit...

Whenever visiting NorKdumb, keep in mind the State Dept´s advisories
to travelers...
Never let a Korean wok your dog...
In NorKdumb, a greyhound race dog is called...
"Fast Food"

Unfortunately, in this particular instance...
the dogs fasted for three days...
then they took a bite out of crime...
the rest, as they say, is l´histoire.

It´s the paws that refreshes.

And it´s... dog eat dog.

One of the dogs limped into a nearby saloon, and axed in Korean...
"I´m looking for the man Hu shot my paw... ?"

Anyway, once the pirated Chinese version of the video appears on YouTube...
or Yhu-Tu-B...
and it goes viral...
with billions of hits...
then you know...
this is true.

Sen. Kaine: Let military, not

Washington Times (D.C), by Ben Wolfgang    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/6/2014 3:58:02 PM     Post Reply
Last week’s deadly shooting at Fort Hood has spurred renewed calls to allow military personnel to carry weapons on bases, but Sen. Tim Kaine argues politicians ought to stay out of the issue. “I trust the military leadership on this. I don’t live on a military base, and I don’t serve in the military,” the Virginia Democrat said on “Fox News Sunday.” “For those of us in Congress to say ‘here’s what they should do,’ I worry that it would be a little political rather than really about safety or security.” In the aftermath of last Wednesday’s shooting — which

Lawmakers on Sunday quickly rejected a Republican proposal that would allow military personnel to carry concealed weapons on bases — raised just days after the horrific Fort Hood base shooting that left four soldiers dead. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Mike McCaul raised the controversial idea on “Fox News Sunday,” explaining that soldiers shouldn’t be defenseless on their own bases. “We should be looking at the idea of senior leadership at these bases, give them the ability to carry a weapon,” the Texas Republican said. “They defend us overseas and defend our freedom abroad, so the idea that

Several sheriff’s deputies were injured and about 100 people were arrested Saturday night when a spring-break party in Isla Vista in Santa Barbara County turned violent, authorities said. About 15,000 people attended Deltopia, a party near UC Santa Barbara, when a disturbance broke out about 9:30 p.m. in the 6700 block of Del Playa Drive, according to a statement from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department. The incident began when a UCSB police officer was struck in the head with a backpack containing bottles of alcohol, according to the statement. When an arrest was made, the crowd became unruly.

President Obama is imposing his policies directly on federal contractors. This week, he will sign an executive order that would prohibit federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay with each other. The prohibition on the wage "gag rules" is similar to language in a Senate bill aimed at closing a pay gap between men and women. That legislation is scheduled for a vote this week, though it is not likely to pass. In addition, Obama on Tuesday will direct the Labor Department to adopt regulations requiring federal contractors to provide compensation data based on sex and race.

WASHINGTON - At the prodding of business organizations, House Republicans quietly secured a recent change in President Barack Obama´s health law to expand coverage choices, a striking, one-of-a-kind departure from dozens of high-decibel attempts to repeal or dismember it. Democrats describe the change involving small-business coverage options as a straightforward improvement of the type they are eager to make, and Obama signed it into law. Republicans are loath to agree, given the strong sentiment among the rank and file that the only fix the law deserves is a burial. "Maybe you say it helps (Obamacare), but it really helps

EVANSTON, Ill.— Northwestern football coach Pat Fitzgerald sided with his university against the formation of a players union in his first public comments Saturday, repeating what he already told his team: "I believe it´s in their best interests to vote no." Fitzgerald addressed the issue for the first time with his squad Wednesday, a week after Peter Ohr, regional director for the National Labor Relations Board, ruled that Northwestern´s scholarship football players were "employees." That decision entitled players to conduct a secret-ballot vote on forming a union to pursue collective bargaining with the school, a move that could significantly alter

The British historian Lord Acton reminds us that “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” That quote from a letter he wrote in 1887 was as true then as it does today. In light of Benghazi, Fast and Furious, or IRS probes of conservative groups in the midst of a presidential reelection, one might conclude that I’m referring to the corruption of government officials. Perhaps. The real and absolute corruption I refer to is the power of the mainstream media to decide what it believes to be news while further exercising their power to ignore stories that don’t

More than 3,000 gun rights activists rallied on the lawn of the Connecticut state Capitol Saturday to protest the one-year anniversary of the state´s stringent gun control laws, passed in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. Organized by the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, the rally lasted from noon to 2 p.m. and featured political candidates, 2nd Amendment rights supporters and attorneys as speakers.

The helicopter kicked up a cloud of freshly fallen snow that partly obscured the ground below, but despite the poor visibility, it gently touched down in a landing that was unremarkable except for the fact no one was at the controls. The helicopter, filmed during testing by the Naval Research Laboratory, was piloted by a 100-pound (45-kg) sensor and software package that officials said can turn any rotary-winged aircraft into a virtually autonomous drone able to fly with minimal input from the Marine Corps troops it was designed to serve.

By drawing public attention to layoffs by subsidiaries of Koch Industries across the country — a chemical plant in North Carolina, an oil refinery in Alaska, a lumber operation in Arkansas — Democrats are seeking to make villains of the reclusive billionaires, whose political organizations have spent more

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets
