The nuclear war tweet
heard ´round the world

CNN, by Stephen Collinson

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2018 9:18:24 AM

(Video) - The world´s most powerful man ignited a stunning new showdown with North Korea late Tuesday, as Donald Trump boasted to volatile leader Kim Jong Un that he had a "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear weapon. Trump´s flippant comments about his nuclear prowess -- akin to "mine is bigger than yours" schoolyard taunts -- raise new questions about whether the President has thought deeply about the awesome destructive power at his command. (Snip) "Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful

Disclaimer: I abhor now posting any article from CNN, especially, like NBC News, they will be named tonight as part of the "Fake News Media" that President Trump will announce at 5 PM today. I listened to Nikki Haley´s short presser at the UN yesterday. 1. We will NOT allow a nuclear North Korea. 2. We support the protests in Iran. 3. Pakistan aid to be withheld because of their support in hiding terrorist. (Remember Bin Laden raid?) 4. Withholding $100M+ annual "aid" to Palestinian Authority till they make nice with Israel. No wasted words.

It is so refreshing to have a president that simply tells it like it is. The author is obviously someone who prescribes to the notion that weakness and mincing are a good thing.

Agree. Obama would have been hiding under his bed after Kim´s initial tweet. Finally we have a President who stands up for America but who is also unpredictable to our enemies and thus dangerous to them as well. I am loving this.

Trump is saying EXACTLY what true Americans want our President to say to our enemies.

The era of weak and apologizing quasi-Americans like Obama is over. It’s back to Patton and McAuliffe at the Bastogne now.

As much as it pains me to say this - I voted for Trump and have been happy with the results - this response of his really bothers me because it´s too over-the-top to suggest that you´re playing chicken with nuclear arsenals. It sounded juvenile and it´s the first time one of Trump´s tweets actually troubled me. I pray that I don´t feel this way again.

CNN doesn´t understand the tweet. It was directed to Little Rocket Man´s underlings, the ones who carry out his orders. He´s telling them they have it bad now, and it´s going to be a lot worse if they execute any orders to launch.

I´ve noticed that Presdient Trump´s tweets are getting better all the time, especially since the word limit was raised. There was a lot to this one, and I´m sure North Korea´s generals understood it better than CNN.

“…as Donald Trump boasted.” Why is a response to rocket man a boast? A simple reminder, in words they understand, that what they have is just an invasion to have their country totally destroyed if their mad man leader goes too far. But top the MSM it is a boast.

Nothing that President Trump said in his tweet was news as everyone with a head on their shoulders knows that the USA is a nuclear superpower that could blow North Korea into glass if the USA really wanted to start a war, which Kim knows it does not.

#6- Some childrearing experts recommend that when a child needs to be disciplined, there are times when a parent needs to bend or kneel down to come face-to-face with a child’s eyes and warn that child in clear, serious, non-threatening words what to expect if the child continues bad behavior. While President Trump’s tweet may appear flippant, it is not—it conveys a very clear message to Kim Jong Un and his underlings that they better not take any military action or they will all pay an enormous price for such reckless behavior.

Aboard USS Carl Vinson, Philippines - U.S. forces are undeterred by China´s military buildup on man-made islands in the South China Sea and will continue patrolling the strategic, disputed waters wherever "international law allows us," said a Navy officer aboard a mammoth U.S. aircraft carrier brimming with F-18 fighter jets. Lt. Cmdr. Tim Hawkins told The Associated Press on board the USS Carl Vinson that the Navy has carried out routine patrols at sea and in the air in the region for 70 years to promote security and guarantee the unimpeded flow of trade that´s crucial for Asian and U.S. economies.

Troops from South Korea joined their Thai and U.S counterparts on Saturday in an amphibious vehicle landing drill as part of Southeast Asia´s largest multinational military exercise. The 300 soldiers from South Korea who joined 2,000 U.S. Marines and Thai soldiers in eastern Thailand marked the highest numbers participating from the East Asian country since it joined the Cobra Gold exercise in 2010, and comes at a time when tensions are particularly high on the Korean Peninsula. Tensions in the Koreas primarily involve concerns over North Korea´s nuclear capability, which has led to saber-rattling declarations

Two weeks ago we had the TV financial follies, screaming about the sell-off and how the Trump rally was over — despite 13 consecutive months of gains, a record. The bats came out for commentators’ favorite piñata, the president. Then stocks had their best week since 2011, rallying straight back up about 1,700 quick points. On Tuesday, the intellectually lightweight “analysts and economists” were nibbling their nails in worry over the “CPI inflation” number, which showed real price increases for the first time in quite a while. And it’s true that bond yields (which move in the opposite direction of bond prices) backed up to

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

The FBI — already facing congressional investigations over its handling of the Russia probe and other political matters — was hit this week with a new batch of inquiries from lawmakers about its failure to act on tips that might have prevented the massacre at a high school in Parkland, Fla. On Friday, the chairs of three powerful congressional committees that oversee the bureau sent letters demanding briefings on the FBI’s misstep, and others lambasted the bureau for its apparent failure. The bureau acknowledged that it received a warning on Jan. 5 that Nikolas Cruz had a desire to kill and might attack a school,

Tulare County, CA - Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said, "it´s a good day," because school officials and law enforcement intervened early enough to prevent another tragedy. According to the Tulare County Sheriff´s Department, a 13-year-old student at Pixley Middle School was making threats to "shoot up the school." The student was then transported and booked at the Tulare County Juvenile Detention Facility on charges of criminal threats. Sheriff Boudreaux says school officials were alerted to the threat through an online homework site and contacted the Sheriff´s Office.

White House Chief of Staff John F.

In a five-page memo, Mr. Kelly acknowledged mistakes and put the responsibility on the FBI and Justice Department to hand-deliver updates on background investigations. “The American people deserve a White House staff that meets the highest standards and that has been carefully vetted — especially those who work closely with the president or handle sensitive national

Ankara, Turkey - About the only thing the top diplomats from the United States and Turkey could agree upon on Friday was that their countries’ relations had reached a crisis point, as the two sides delayed negotiations until next month on issues that at times have brought the two NATO allies close to confrontation on the battlefield.

A South Carolina high school student was arrested Thursday after allegedly posting "Florida Round 2" on Snapchat-- an obvious reference to Wednesday´s school schooting--but insisted that the post was simply a "joke." Officials said the post, which was sent via Snapchat, showed a teen wearing a partial mask and holding what looked like an assault rifle. Beneath the photo was the caption, “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow.” Officials at Broome High School received an anonymous tip from a student about a possible threat, Spartanburg School District Three spokeswoman Sherri Horton said.

U.S. regulators on Thursday killed the politically sensitive sale of the Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX) to a group led by China-based investors, saying a lack of information on the would-be buyers threatened the ability to properly monitor the exchange after the deal. The move by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ends a two-year battle to gain approval for the sale and underscores the more hostile environment facing Chinese buyers under the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. Trump brought the CHX deal up twice during the election campaign as an example of how jobs and wealth were leaving the

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago. Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening.

President Trump said Tuesday he has asked the Justice Department to regulate "bump stocks," the firearms accessory that can be used to make semi-automatic weapons fire at a rate similar to automatic weapons. Trump´s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several weeks after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to killed dozens of people. "Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said.
