Seoul - South Korea´s Air Force said Wednesday it has successfully conducted its first live-fire exercise for Taurus, a long-range air-to-surface missile introduced from Germany for precision bombing of key facilities in North Korea. In the exercise, which took place in the air over Taean, South Chungcheong Province, on Tuesday, the Air Force´s F-15K fighter jet fired a Taurus missile, which flew some 400 kilometers and precisely hit an intended target in the coastal waters off Gunsan, North Jeolla Province, the Air Force said. The 500-kilometer-range Taurus is capable of carrying out precision attacks on targets in the

Comments:
The saber rattling foes on as a wall of precision striking missiles are being imported to south Korea. Meanwhile, North Korea may have to make do with what they have as the shipping embargo by the UN is beginning to take effect. That´s still not a comforting thought made to starve by it´s fat little dictator.

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

Kathy Griffin can´t get her "sorry" straight. The comedian who tearfully apologized twice after a photo shoot of her holding a blooded Trump mask in May caused an uproar is not sorry now. "I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody," Griffin told Australia´s "Sunrise." Griffin noted her friends like Debra Messing and Chelsea Cliton didn´t stand by her at the time. "These Trump fans, they´re hardcore," the 56-year-old said blaming President Trump supporters for the fall out. When "Sunrise" co-host Samantha Armytage brought up to Griffin that many of Trump's

Virginia House of Delegates candidate Danica Roem (D) has defeated longtime Del. Robert Marshall (R), becoming Virginia´s first openly transgender elected official and one of just few in the nation, according to The Washington Post. Roem´s win in Virginia´s 13th District marks the first election of an openly transgender person in a state legislature. Before venturing into politics, Roem was a reporter for the Gainesville Times and the Prince William Times. Her win comes alongside Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam´s (D) victory in the governor´s race Tuesday, the first major victory for Democrats since President Trump took

De Blasio Coasts to Re-Election,
as Second-Term Challenges Await

Now comes the hard part. Gliding to victory, Bill de Blasio was re-elected on Tuesday as the mayor of New York City, defeating his Republican challenger, Nicole Malliotakis, and a handful of independent candidates in an affirmation of his progressive agenda. Mr. de Blasio, the first Democratic mayor to be re-elected in a generation, since Edward I. Koch captured his third term in 1985, now has four years to further his goal of reshaping the city in his progressive mold. But his ability to deliver may have far more to do with the winds blowing out of Washington and Albany than with circumstances in the five boroughs.

The Trump administration has given 2,500 Nicaraguans with provisional residency 14 months to leave the United States, announcing Monday that it will not renew the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation that has allowed them to remain in the country for nearly two decades. But Trump officials deferred a decision for the much larger group of 57,000 Hondurans who have been living in the United States with the same designation, (Snip) The two groups were shielded from deportation after Hurricane Mitch hit Central America in 1998, and their TPS protections have been routinely renewed ever since.

Washington - The U.S. Senate Banking Committee unanimously backed new sanctions targeting Chinese banks that do business with North Korea on Tuesday, just before President Donald Trump visits Beijing for the first time since taking office. As well as strengthening existing sanctions and congressional oversight, the measure will target foreign financial institutions - in China and elsewhere - that provide services to those subject to North Korea-related sanctions by the U.S. Congress, a presidential order or U.N. Security Council resolution. All 12 Republicans and 11 Democrats on the panel voted for the

Ralph Northam wins Governor seat in
Virginia; Phil Murphy wins in New Jersey

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 11/7/2017 9:13:13     Post Reply
Voters in Virginia and New Jersey gave Democratic gubernatorial candidates large victories Tuesday and sent a clear message of rebuke to President Donald Trump, according to the Associated Press. In Virginia’s hard-fought contest, Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie. In New Jersey front-running Democrat Phil Murphy overcame Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno to succeed unpopular GOP Gov. Chris Christie. Northam rode to victory in part by tapping into voters’ regret at Trump’s victory in last year’s national election. Murphy had an easier pathway in New Jersey,

(Video) - The Manhattan district attorney is expected to present its case seeking an indictment of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein to a grand jury as early as next week, a senior official familiar with the investigation tells News 4 New York. The development comes after NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told reporters Friday that they were gathering evidence for a possible rape arrest of Weinstein, and that it had presented the case to the district attorney´s office. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance told News 4 Tuesday he could not comment on the ongoing investigation into Weinstein or the report that the case

In the fall of 2016, Harvey Weinstein set out to suppress allegations that he had sexually harassed or assaulted numerous women. He began to hire private security agencies to collect information on the women and the journalists trying to expose the allegations. According to dozens of pages of documents, and seven people directly involved in the effort, the firms that Weinstein hired included Kroll, which is one of the world’s largest corporate-intelligence companies, and Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies. Black Cube, which has branches in Tel Aviv, London, and Paris,

California Gov. Jerry Brown took the anti-Trump resistance to the Vatican over the weekend, declaring that the world is in need of a so-called “brainwashing” on climate change. In an appearance Saturday at an event organized by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Mr. Brown assured leaders that the “Trump factor” on climate change is minimal compared to the efforts taking place worldwide, but that it’s not the only problem fueling delusions on the climate threat, The Sacramento Bee reported. “The Trump factor is very small, very small indeed,” the Democratic governor, who has been a vocal opponent of the president’s actions

The New York Times, already

The mourning for the Texas church victims is not yet over — heck, it’s barely begun — and already, The New York Times, in all its left-leaning editorial board wisdom, is calling for gun control. The title says it all: “It’s Not Too Soon to Debate Gun Control.” Does the left ever stop? The New York Times‘ piece included a ticking timer to show how many hours, minutes and seconds since the Sutherland Springs, Texas, shooting and the death of 26. It also included similar counts of hours, minutes and seconds since other shootings, like the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the shooting in Dallas, the shooting in Las Vegas, and others. Why?

Sunday on MSNBC, former Gov. Howard Dean (D-VT), also the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, predicted Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, will be indicted for money laundering. Host Keir Simmons pondered if Democrats would be able to capitalize politically on the controversy surrounding the White House, an aspect Dean seemed to dismiss. “[W]e believe we may well have a criminal in the White House,” Dean said. “Certainly, he has a special interest in the Trump family and their investments. And we think there is substantial likelihood that he has laundered money.

President Donald Trump told a gathering of business leaders in Tokyo that Japan has an unfair advantage on trade and that he intends to fix that imbalance by making it easier to do business in the U.S. "For the last many decades, Japan has been winning. You do know that," he said Monday. "Right now our trade with Japan is not fair and it isn’t open." Trump laid out his complaints about how Japan treats the U.S. unfairly in his eyes, noting that few American cars are sold in Japan and making a plea for Japanese automakers to build more in the U.S. “Try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over.

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home. A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following. They all have head shots from UCLA (snip) If the Chinese wish to use this incident for bargaining leverage (and why wouldn’t they?), they could exchange lenient treatment of the matter, as an “administration violation,” which sounds non-criminal.

Former CBS journalist Dan Rather appeared on NBC "Today" on Tuesday where he lamented on the American people´s lack of trust in the media. "There’s a recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories," host Savannah Guthrie noted. "The media itself is under fire." "What do you think the media needs to do better to enhance its own credibility?" she asked. "We need to do a better job, we need to do our job.

If standard practices are applied, the three UCLA basketball players – including LiAngelo Ball – arrested Tuesday in mainland China under suspicion of shoplifting face between three and 10 years in prison if convicted, according to Chinese lawyers who briefed Yahoo Sports on the applicable laws. The sentencing guidelines could shift depending on the amount that the Chinese could prove was allegedly stolen. Authorities believe the players shoplifted from a Louis Vuitton store near the UCLA team hotel outside of Shanghai. The Bruins are in China to play Georgia Tech on Saturday in the season opener.

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

The Democratic party was “leeched it of its vitality” by Former President Barack Obama and others in the lead-up to the 2016 election campaign, according to Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee. “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by [Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz] that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected,” Brazile writes in her new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in

Joe Biden writes in his new book that President Barack Obama once told him he would have appointed him president if he could and told him he´d "be the best president." The former vice president´s memoir Promise Me, Dad, delves into the death of his son Beau from brain cancer in 2015 and his ultimate decision to not seek the Democratic presidential nomination. In an interview with the New York Times, Biden said the subject of his son´s illness weighed on him and the president, whom he confided in as it became clear Beau would likely not survive.

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with

Former President Bill Clinton believes Trump voters were particularly vulnerable to false claims, or fake news, because they felt economically trapped in their rural communities. “In the last election, in the counties that Hillary carried, you find 64 percent of America’s GDP. In the more numerous, rural counties carried by President Trump, you find 36 percent of the GDP, even though the median income of a Trump voter was higher. What does that tell you?” Clinton told a crowd gathered at Georgetown University Monday afternoon. “Even poor people are more hopeful if they’re in a dynamic place,” Clinton said. “Being trapped with

Miko Grimes made an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” where she emphatically claimed the star quarterback’s views on the anthem protests led to his offensive line allowing him to get crushed. She even went further and said his views led to locker room fights. “A lot of people don’t know, but the reason Derek Carr got injured was because the Raiders offensive line allowed him to get injured,” Miko

The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s

A juror taking part in the bribery trial of Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., interrupted deliberations Tuesday to ask the presiding judge: "What is a senator?" U.S. District Judge William Walls refused to answer the juror´s question and similarly denied their request for a transcript of the closing argument from Menendez’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, per Bloomberg. Instead, the federal judge instructed the jurors to rely on their individual and collective memories to define the role of a senator and remember important points from Lowell´s final address. Jury deliberations began in Newark on Monday to determine whether Menendez is guilty of federal
