North Korea made it to the
World Cup final! Wait, what?!

Toronto Sun, (CAN), by Kurtis Larson

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/12/2014 6:05:44 PM

Despite not qualifying for 2014 World Cup, North Korea has reached the final, according to state media. Make sense? While the rest of the world is sitting tight in anticipation of Sunday´s Germany-Argentina tilt here in Rio, North Koreans have reportedly been told their country´s soccer team has been dominant at this summer´s event. A video posted to YouTube channel Korea News Backup, which features reports from North Korea´s state-run media, appears to show a newscaster reporting on North Korea´s fictitious success at the World Cup. The sequence shows "highlights" of North Korea´s 7-0 win over Japan, 4-0 win over

Comments:
When the government controls the media you can get the masses to believe anything:

0bamacare is working
The economy is better than it has ever has been
There´s not a smidgin of corruption in my administration
Bush lied about WMD
Al Qaeda is on the ropes
We are in the World Cup finals.....

You get the idea...

North Korea is in a closed world - a bit like public schools in the United States:
Thus - in our public schools:
1. There is no God;
2. Jesus was a Myth;
3. Sex between adolescent students is OK;
4. Homosexuality is normal.

The NORK sports pages must be a hoot. Two man baseball teams that beat the Yankees 50 to 0. One woman volleyball team beats UCLA varsity without giving up a single point. Same with tennis, basketball, 5000 meter races, and of course golf. (no North Korean has had to hit the ball twice to a single hole for over 15 years)

Government corruption on the rampage
Washington Times, by Richard Rahn    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 7/21/2014 9:29:09 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is arguably the most corrupt administration in U.S. history. Corruption destroys civil society and economic growth by undermining the rule of law and protection of private property. Corruption takes many forms, from the simple payment to a government official for a favor, to the failure of government employees to do what they are paid to do, to gross abuse of power. The president and his senior officials swear to uphold the Constitution and the law — which means following the law as written, and not as they wish it were written. The failure to apply equal justice to

Obama: No ‘authentic’ way to be black
The Hill (Washington, D.C.), by Justin Sink    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 7/21/2014 2:14:43 PM     Post Reply
The notion that black men need to act, dress or speak in a certain way to be “authentic” is something that "has to go," President Obama said Monday at an event promoting his initiative to aid young men of color. "The notion that there’s some authentic way of being black, that if you’re going to be black you have to act a certain way and wear a certain kind of clothes, … that has to go, because there are a whole bunch of different ways for African-American men to be authentic," Obama said.

Warner dodges question about how

Sen. Mark R. Warner’s biggest challenge in his re-election bid may not be his Republican opponent Ed Gillespie, but President Barack Obama’s plummeting approval ratings. Consequently, the Democrat has not made any joint appearances with the president of late. For example, when Obama made a trip across the Potomac River into Virginia on Tuesday, pushing his plan to fix the Federal Highway Trust Fund in McLean, Warner was a no-show. His spokesman said he was tending to Senate business. And in a recent interview in Richmond, Warner dodged a question about whether he would welcome Obama to join him on

Revealed: Hamas Wore IDF Uniforms
in Latest Infiltration Attempt
Arutz Sheva (Israel), by Koby Finkler and Tova Dvorin    Original Article

The IDF´s initial investigation regarding Hamas´s latest infiltration attempt from Gaza proved shocking Monday, after it revealed that Hamas has been blending into the Israeli side of the border - by replacing their clothing with replicas of IDF uniforms. The terrorists who attempted to infiltrate an Israeli kibbutz earlier Monday changed their headgear for IDF helmets, according to the report, as well as other similar-looking gear. As a result, it said, forces on the ground did not recognize for several minutes that the "unit" within sight was actually a terror cell. The revelation was only uncovered after a commanding officer

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, often described as the second-highest court in the land, could rule on Halbig v. Burwell as early as tomorrow. Halbig is one of four lawsuits challenging the legality of the health-insurance subsidies the IRS is dispensing in the 36 states that did not establish a health-insurance Exchange under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or “ObamaCare,” and thus have Exchanges established by the federal government. Though the PPACA repeatedly states those subsidies are available only “through an Exchange established by the State,” and there are indications IRS officials knew they

The ISIS deadline for Christians to leave Mosul ended at the weekend, and thousands of people who follow the religion have left the city. And as the last group of Christians made their way out, the militants torched the 1,800-year-old Assyrian Christian church. According to Al Arabiya, the church was burned down on Saturday, after the remaining Christians fled. It noted that the burning of the church was the latest event in the destruction of Christian property in Mosul.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is calling for international investigators to have "immediate and full access" to the site in eastern Ukraine where a passenger jet was shot down last week. Obama accused pro-Russian separatists in the area of removing evidence and bodies from the crash site. He says that raising the question of "what exactly are they trying to hide?"

GREENVILLE, Ill. -- From the very start, Scott Walker refused to believe he would die in prison. Arrested and jailed at 25, then sent to prison more than two years later, Walker couldn´t imagine spending his life behind bars for dealing drugs. He told himself this wasn´t the end, that someday he´d be released. But the years passed, his appeals failed and nothing changed. Now, after 17 1/2 years as an inmate, Walker may have his best shot at freedom. The Obama administration - responding to mounting concerns about decades of harsh penalties and overcrowded prisons - recently announced it

“What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?“ That was national radio talk show superhost Rush Limbaugh commenting on a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.” “The concept, as it is properly understood, is to change the enforcement paradigm in order to allow the Department of Housing and Urban Development to essentially decide what every neighborhood in America should look like,” Limbaugh explained.

North Korea has asked China to stop the spread of a video clip lampooning leader Kim Jong-un. According to a source in China on Tuesday, the North feels the clip, which shows Kim dancing and Kung-Fu fighting, "seriously compromises Kim´s dignity and authority." (snip)The viral video is a Chinese-language techno track that features various dance and fight scenes in which Kim´s head has been magicked on the body of a participant. In one scene, the eternally smiling Kim is knocked out by U.S. President Barack Obama, while in another he has a bucket upturned on his head and is pushed into

President Obama is golfing on Sunday at Fort Belvoir, Va., according to a White House pool report. The president flew to the base on Sunday afternoon from Camp David, where he spent Friday evening and Saturday. An official said the president is playing with staffers Mike Brush, Joe Paulsen and Marvin Nicholson. The White House said in a statement that Obama spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday morning to discuss Israel’s ongoing military operation in Gaza. “The President discussed Israel’s ongoing military operation, reiterated the United States’ condemnation of attacks by Hamas against Israel, and reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself,”

What we learned from
liberals at Netroots Nation
Politico, by Katie Glueck    Original Article

DETROIT — At a high-profile gathering of progressives this week, Hillary Clinton was tolerated, Barack Obama was pitied, and Elizabeth Warren was treated like a hero. The annual liberal confab known as Netroots Nation brought together around 3,000 activists converged for several days of campaign training, a protest or two, and speeches from Warren, Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrat. And while the 2014 election is just months away, many in this crowd were far more focused on the 2016 race for president, a contest they hope will allow for a showdown between the pro-business and populist strains of the Democratic Party.

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

Vice President Biden told Vladimir Putin that he did not believe the Russian leader had “a soul” during a visit to the Kremlin in 2011, the vice president said in a New Yorker magazine interview published Monday. Biden said the incident occurred while he was touring Putin’s office in the Kremlin. “I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it? A magnificent office!’ And he laughed. As I turned, I was this close to him,” Biden said, signaling that the two leaders were standing just inches apart. “I

At around noon on March 20 last year, Air Force One landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport for Barack Obama’s first presidential visit to Israel. The three-day trip had been billed as an Israeli reset—the newly reelected president’s bid for a clean slate with the Jewish state after four years of icy relations. Obama would lay a wreath at the tomb of Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism. He would visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. He would address an auditorium packed with Israeli students. And, of course, he would meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Before heading
