Japan deploys missile defence over
N. Korea threat to Guam: reports

Agence France-Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/12/2017 12:03:36 AM

Tokyo - Japan was on Saturday deploying its Patriot missile defence system after North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles over the country towards the US Pacific territory of Guam, reports said. Regional tensions are mounting as Washington and Pyongyang ratchet up their war of words, with President Donald Trump warning Pyongyang would "truly regret" any hostile action against the US. The defence ministry started deploying the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system in Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi in western Japan, which Pyongyang warned could be along its missiles´ flight path, public broadcaster NHK

Comments:
First mention (for me) that Japan had our Patriot Missile Defense System, at least three of them). Good news, but means that they are taking the threats from North Korea seriously.

Its about dang time. I´ve been saying that both SKorea and Japan need missle defense systems, since this whole thing started. They have needed them yesterday! This is very good news and it will help us to convince China of the need to help ´tamp down´ the little pig dictator.

Kim Jong-un’ wife, Ri Sol-ju, makes
rare public appearance at gala
banquet to celebrate nuclear tests
Telegraph [UK], by Nicola Smith, Mike Wright    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/10/2017 10:39:22     Post Reply
Kim Jong-un’s wife has made a rare public appearance alongside the North Korean leader at a celebration of the pariah state’s advancing nuclear capabilities. Ri Sol-ju was photographed at a gala banquet for the engineers who conducted country’s most powerful nuclear test to date last Sunday. The dictator’s wife has barely been seen in public in recent years, prompting speculation she may have given birth to the couple’s third child recently. In 2016 she didn´t make a public appearance for more than seven months, initially raising fears she may have fallen from favour. She emerged again in December to accompany her husband at

Shin Bet head says hundreds of

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) has thwarted some 200 terrorist attacks since the beginning of the year, 70 of them in the last two months alone, Shin Bet head Nadav Argaman said at Netanyahu´s cabinet meeting on Sunday. Among those thwarted were suicide attacks, kidnappings and shooting incidents, he said. According to Argaman, despite the relative calm, the security situation in the West bank is “fragile” and is characterized by heightened sensitivity over religious issues, such as the al-Aksa mosque. Argaman said that there is a high level of threat posed both by established terrorist organizations, as well as by

After successfully testing two intercontinental ballistic missiles and a bomb with far more destructive power than those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the North Korean nuclear threat has never been more credible. When asked on Wednesday about possible military action, President Donald Trump said, “We’ll see what happens.” That did little to reassure those still shaken by his remarks last month that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded” and that further threats from Pyongyang would be met with “fire and fury.” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, for his part, is still pushing for a diplomatic solution and hoping to calm fears

President Trump´s job approval rating in the RealClearPolitics average of polls is 39.9 percent. That´s actually up a bit from Trump´s (so far) low of 37.4 percent, reached on August 14. (Snip) The Cook Political Report puts three currently Democratic Senate seats in the toss-up category: Joe Manchin in West Virginia, Claire McCaskill in Missouri, and Joe Donnelly in Indiana. Trump´s job approval in those states is 58 percent, 50 percent, and 47 percent, respectively. In addition, in one seat which Cook puts in the "Lean Democratic" category, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Trump´s approval rating is 52 percent.

Vatican City - Pope Francis, who has used his absolute authority in the Vatican to decentralize power from Rome, made a widespread change Saturday to the ways, and words, in which Roman Catholics worship by amending Vatican law to give national bishop conferences greater authority in translating liturgical language. “It’s hugely important,” said Rita Ferrone, a specialist in Catholic liturgy who writes for Commonweal, a liberal Catholic magazine. She said that by loosening Rome’s grip on the language of prayers, Francis had restored the intention of the reforms of the Second Vatican Council and erased some of the

Trump signs $15 billion Harvey
relief, debt ceiling package
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/8/2017 7:58:49     Post Reply
President Trump on Friday signed a $15 billion Hurricane Harvey relief bill that includes a short-term suspension of the debt ceiling and funding to keep the government running for the next three months. Earlier Friday, the package passed in the House of Repreentatives by a 316-90 vote, with all opposing votes coming from Republicans. Congress moved with uncharacteristic speed on the bill to avert several looming crises – the prospect of not only triggering a government shutdown, but hitting the debt limit as the federal government burns through cash it needs to respond to both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma which is

In deal with Trump, Democrats
see opportunity — and peril
Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan, Anne Gearan    Original Article

Democratic leaders have been running victory laps in the days since they struck a deal with President Trump, over Republican objections, to extend the nation’s borrowing limit and keep government open for three months. But new divisions among Democrats show that peril may yet lie ahead for Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), whose newfound connection with the president has put them in a similar spot as many Republicans this year: working with an unreliable and unpopular partner to attain legislation that may never come.

Hillary Clinton takes yet another dig at Donald Trump in new new memoir, saying the ´flagrantly sexist´ candidate won the 2016 election. Clinton´s memoir settles scores with a range of competitors and opponents, while providing unsparing language for Trump, who Clinton complains stalked her on a debate stage to the point where it made her ´skin crawl´ and she wanted to say ´back up, you creep.´ In another excerpt reported by the New York Times, Clinton says sexism ´played a role´ in the election where she suffered a historic defeat. ´This has to be said,´ Clinton writes.

The Trump Justice Department has once again cleared former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner of criminal liability stemming from the tea party targeting. In a letter to top Republicans, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd said they re-reviewed the case and concluded there isn’t enough evidence to charge Ms. Lerner, who was at the center of the targeting. Mr. Boyd said the new review included lawyers who only recently joined the department and weren’t part of the Obama administration’s earlier decision. “After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be

Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina announced Friday she will not run for U.S. Senate in Virginia next year. “I’ve decided that I can be of more valuable outside the system than a single voice among 100 inside the system,” Ms. Fiorina said on “The John Fredericks Show.” “So I’m going to continue the work I’ve been doing for many years enlisting up leaders and problems solvers all across the country and have made the decision to seek the U.S. Senate seat here in the Commonwealth.” Ms. Fiorina’s announcement was coupled with the news that former Gov.

Professors from Harvard University and other Boston-area colleges were arrested Thursday while protesting against President Trump’s plan to rescind an Obama-era program shielding young illegal immigrants from deportation. Thirty-one people, including professors from Harvard, Babson, and Boston College, were arrested after forming a human chain and blocking traffic along Massachusetts Avenue, The Harvard Crimson reported. Cambridge Police Department spokesman Jeremy Warnick said the protesters refused police orders to move. “They were given multiple opportunities to continue their free speech,

The Environmental Protection Agency’s gravy train just ain’t what she used to be. Green groups are awestruck, agog and maybe even aghast at the news that the Trump administration has put a political operative to work vetting applications for EPA grants worth hundreds of millions of dollars. John Konkus, who was Donald Trump’s campaign chairman in Leon County, Florida, last year, now, according to The Washington Post, “reviews every award [the EPA] gives out, along with every grant solicitation before it goes out.” Green groups are discovering that Donald Trump is not the same president as Barack Obama, whose EPA

It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020. The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party. Two of the leading prospective presidential candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have begun national fundraising operations. Former Vice President Joe Biden has been busy building a national email list to communicate directly with his supporters, and Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) has already announced his presidential candidacy. The Democratic Party does not just need a new leader, but a new

The network has cut loose Eric Bolling, who was suspended on Aug. 5, and has also canceled his daily program “Fox News Specialists.” The law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, investigated allegations that Bolling used his cellphone to send unsolicited photos of male genitalia to current and former female colleagues at the network.

On the same day that Fox News announced that it had “agreed to part ways amicably” with suspended conservative host Eric Bolling, Bolling’s son Eric, Jr. was found dead in Boulder, Colorado. (snip) A strange anomaly in this story is that Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer who wrote the August 4 article alleging that Eric Bolling was guilty of inappropriate behavior years earlier, claims to have been the first one to break the news of Chase Bolling’s death.

Hillary Clinton was so confident of victory last year that she bought a second house next to her residence in Chappaqua, New York, to accommodate White House staff during presidential retreats there. "I thought I was going to win," she said. The New York Post reported last year on the Clintons paying $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, ranch-style home next to their house in Chappaqua. The newspaper´s source said at the time it was thought to be a weekend retreat for their daughter Chelsea´s family. In an interview from her home on the CBS program "Sunday Morning" delving into her

Keep these numbers in mind: 316 to 90 and 80 to 17. They were the lopsided votes in the House and Senate in support of the deal President Trump made with Democratic leaders on storm aid, the debt limit and government funding. Remarkably, all the no voters were Republicans. The numbers shout that we are witnessing a potential turning point in the Trump presidency, one that could further shake up Washington and rattle the calcified political parties. Frustrated by the failure of GOP majorities in both chambers to pass his agenda, Trump followed through on threats to work with Democrats. Signs suggest it was

Jane Pauley asked Clinton on "CBS Sunday Morning." "Yes," Clinton responded. "As an active politician, it´s over. "I am done with being a candidate," she added. "But I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country´s future is at stake."

The news that President Trump abandoned Republicans to strike a deal with congressional Democrats on a three-month extension of the debt limit yielded a predictable response from his predictable cheerleaders: It was brilliant and typically shrewd for the author of “The Art of the Deal” to take the very first offer the Democrats made and ask for nothing in return. Less obsequious observers on the right claimed this was the long-prophesied moment. The seventh seal had been broken. Donald Trump was “pivoting” at last. “The pivot is real and it’s spectacular!” proclaimed Ben Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist. In the lexicon

Washington - Hillary Clinton on Sunday called Donald Trump’s inaugural speech as president “a cry from the white nationalist gut”. Clinton was speaking in her first televised interview since her stunning defeat in the election in November, two days ahead of the publication of What Happened, her book about her defeat. (Snip) During the campaign, in a moment widely criticized and weaponised by the Trump campaign, Clinton memorably referred to half of Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables”. She expressed regret at the time. On Sunday, Clinton was unapologetic for the context of her remarks and said Trump’s base

Who would ever dream of handing political leadership to someone whose crowning career achievement was a high-paying no-show job? As its next presidential candidate, is Michelle Obama the best the Democrats can come up with? That´s the view of pollster Douglas Schoen, who thinks they don´t stand a chance otherwise. In a piece for The Hill, he writes: As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020. This alternative plan requires a new, united
