Japanese public TV says staffer
sent missile alert in error

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/17/2018 2:28:29 AM

Tokyo - Japanese public broadcaster NHK says its erroneous alert of a North Korean missile fired at Japan was sent by a staff member who meant to file a different news flash. NHK denied any mechanical flaw and said Wednesday it is studying preventive measures. The erroneous news flash Tuesday said North Korea appeared to have fired a missile at Japan and that the government was warning people to take shelter. NHK retracted the mistake within minutes and apologized on air and on other formats. NHK isn't sure how many of its 300,000 social media followers saw the alert or notification and it's unknown if anyone followed the

I wonder if the Japanese have an alert for the next sighting of Godzilla offshore. Bueller?

Imho, the U.S. has brought down fired missiles aimed at Hawaii and Japan without giving any credit to NK for having launched them - this both infuriates and embarrasses NK.

Am I crazy?

I don´t believe for a second the "accidental push of a button" is true concerning the Hawaii situation. I think it was a conscious effort to goad the POTUS into issuing orders to attack NK.

Trump on collision course
with Congress on ZTE
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Niv Elis    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/24/2018 10:36:31     Post Reply
President Trump is on a collision course with Congress on ZTE, the Chinese telecommunications giant sanctioned for doing business with Iran and North Korea. Trump has publicly signaled his desire to ease the restrictions on ZTE as he seeks China´s cooperation on North Korea talks and hammering out a trade deal. But Trump’s pivot on ZTE has received terrible reviews from Republicans in Congress, who have joined with Democrats in passing measures to ensure the restrictions are kept in place.

(Video) - Stunning footage shows much of the US lit up with bright lightning as it spreads across the country. The video – taken by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – comes from a brand new satellite launched to survey weather over the US. It allows scientists and weather experts to see activity above the Western Hemisphere in unprecedented detail. The data shown in the video can be used to plot where lightning is striking. That, in turn, allows them to predict whether intense weather and storms might be forming and then becoming dangerous – potentially allowing experts to spot

Trump Cancels Summit With North Korea
WFOR-TV [Miami, FL], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/24/2018 10:08:25     Post Reply
(Video) Washington - President Donald Trump has canceled his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In a letter to Kim, Trump wrote that it would be “inappropriate” to hold the planned historic summit. “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long planned meeting,” he wrote. The summit was to take place June 12th in Singapore. Trump did leave the door open to a future meeting. “I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters.

North Korea on Thursday demolished what it claims to be its nuclear test site, setting off several explosions over the course of a few hours in the presence of foreign journalists. Sky News reporter Tom Cheshire was invited to the explosion and told the station that he and his colleagues walked up into the mountains to watch the demolition. “There was a huge explosion, you could feel it. Dust came at you, the heat came at you. It was extremely loud,” Cheshire said. The explosions at the supposed nuclear test site deep in the mountains were centered on three tunnels into the underground site and a number of observation towers in the

President Trump on Thursday dismissed the possibility of an immigration bill being signed into law without containing a provision that funds his signature campaign promise for a border wall along the U.S.´ southern border with Mexico. In an interview with "Fox and Friends," the president touted four immigration bills currently being discussed by lawmakers, before warning that none of them would obtain his signature without proper funding for border security.

President Trump said former FBI Director James Comey was one of the "rotten apples" at the FBI, after Comey accused Trump of spreading lies about his former agency. “The FBI is a fantastic institution, but some of the people at the top were rotten apples. James Comey was one of them,” Trump told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday. “I’ve done a great service to this country by getting rid of him, by firing him.” Comey said on Twitter Wednesday that Trump´s attacks on and lies about the FBI will cause “lasting damage” to the country. “Facts matter.

The finding by a Dutch-led team raised the likelihood Kremlin officials would face criminal charges for the downing of the BRUSSELS — A Dutch-led international team of investigators said Thursday that a missile that downed a Malaysian Airlines jetliner over eastern Ukraine in 2014 came from the Russian military, opening the possibility that Dutch prosecutors could sue the Kremlin in connection with the attack that killed all 298 on board. The long-running inquiry already established that a Russian-made Buk antiaircraft missile downed flight MH17, but it had not previously made a direct link to the Russian military.

It may be true that President Trump illegally conspired with Russia and was so good at covering it up he’s managed to outwit our best intel and media minds who´ve searched for irrefutable evidence for two years. (We still await special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.) But there’s a growing appearance of alleged wrongdoing equally as insidious, if not more so, because it implies widespread misuse of America’s intelligence and law enforcement apparatus. Here are eight signs pointing to a counterintelligence operation deployed against Trump for political reasons. Code name: The operation reportedly had at least one code name

(Video) - Hillary Clinton on Wednesday formally backed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the gubernatorial race, as she tried to unite scandal-scarred Democrats at their state convention. The endorsement for Cuomo comes as he fights to ward off a challenge from the left in the form of activist and “Sex and the City” actress Cynthia Nixon. The party is also still reeling from the resignation of Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who stepped down earlier this month amid allegations he assaulted four women he dated. Clinton did not mention Schneiderman during remarks at Hofstra University, but took repeated

It happens every year for just a couple of weeks. Deep in the Congaree National Park, as the sun disappears, the sky will light up as hundreds -- if not thousands -- of male fireflies flash in sync. The phenomenon, which typically occurs for about two weeks in the South Carolina national park in mid-May or early-June, is a mating ritual for male fireflies competing for the attention of females before their short lives come to an end, Jon Manchester, a park ranger at Congaree National Park, told Fox News. As the male fireflies, which remain close to the ground, light up together with their flash patterns, the national park looks like

Wonsan, North Korea - A group of foreign journalists departed by train Wednesday to watch the dismantling of North Korea´s nuclear test site after eight reporters from South Korea received last-minute permission to join them. The remote site deep in the mountains of the North´s sparsely populated northeast interior is expected to have a formal closing ceremony in the next day or two, depending on the weather. The closing was announced by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ahead of his planned summit with U.S. President Donald Trump next month. (Snip) The group includes an Associated Press Television crew.

An Israeli minister has struck back against European criticism surrounding attacks on protesters demonstrating against Israeli violence in Gaza. Israel´s deadly response to recent Palestinian protests against the Israeli and U.S. governments has drawn local and international outrage. Jafar Farah, the head of Haifa-based NGO Massawa, was injured as Israeli security forces responded last week to a protest against Israel´s killing of dozens of up to 111 Palestinians during two months of unrest at the border with Gaza. The European Union has condemned Israel´s use of deadly force in Gaza. In a statement Tuesday, the EU

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year.

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.

In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have

They were spying — a term I don´t particularly like — on what the Russians were doing," Clapper said during an appearance on The View to promote his new book, “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From A Life In Intelligence.” The FBI, Clapper said, was simply trying to answer the question, "Were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence?"
