Gangneung, South Korea — They´re the early breakout hit of the Winter Olympics, a singing, clapping — and perfectly matching — troupe of red-clad North Korean cheerleaders who march to their own kind of drummer. Watch them in action, and it´s hard to turn away for reasons that are somewhat hard to explain. (snip) Many on Twitter also criticized the troupe as pure propaganda for a dictator, and wondered if they were coerced into performing. Kim runs a ruthless regime, but the women who make up the cheerleading squad — Kim´s wife is herself a former member — are reportedly

The North Korean cheerleaders were set up by Kim´s grandfather. His father continued the practice. These women were usually hand selected by the ruler and USED for personal use. (if you know what I mean) They are paid well. It´s nothing but a private harem. These news outlets that are so into to #metoo and wearing black, should take a closer look. They have been owned again.

by the way, they were saying after a 2006 event that 21 cheerleaders were sent to prison camps for talking out of turn, and one married the dear leader. can´t help wondering who told on the 21 who went to jail.

These are programmed human robots. Terribly abused women who are clearly in fear for their lives. They look like battered women when the cop arrives to ask, stupidly, in front of the brutish husband, "Is everything alright, Ma´am?" It always is, of course!

Preliminary findings on U.S. diplomats’

Miami Herald (FL), by Mimi Whitefield    Original Article

Two University of Pennsylvania researchers who examined diplomatic personnel from the U.S. Embassy in Havana confirm they suffered brain injuries, but said the cases weren’t accompanied by head trauma as would have been expected. There are still no indications of what may have caused the diplomats’ mysterious symptoms. The report, published Wednesday in The Journal of American Medical Association, said the unique circumstances of the patients “raise concern about a new mechanism for possible acquired brain injury from an exposure of unknown origin.” In an editorial, JAMA said an explanation “remains elusive” and “many potential causes for the symptoms.... remain possibilities.

A military analyst has criticised EU leaders for failing to accept that “the Western world is at war” and warned that Europe will see worse terror attacks committed by Islamic extremists. “Most politicians do not want to admit that the Western world is at war and should act accordingly… Policy responses are, in most cases, inadequate,” Lukáš Visingr told Czech news channel CT24. Mr. Visginr added that the recent period of calm – following the spate of Islamic extremist-inspired terror attacks that included the London Bridge, Manchester, Champs Elysees, Paris, and Barcelona attacks during the summer of 2017 – should not be

A KIM JONG-UN impersonator says he was dragged out of the Winter Olympics by "North Korean heavies" after turning up in character and dancing in front of regime cheerleaders. Photos taken today show the lookalike - who is notorious for appearing at public events dressed as the despot - waving to the country´s cheerleader team at a united Korea hockey game against Japan. Impersonator Howard today exclusively told The Sun: "I was actually late to the game.

Venezuela oil production is plummeting

Venezuela´s main source of cash is dwindling at a breathtaking pace. The country´s oil output in January fell to its lowest level in nearly 30 years, not including a brief oil strike in 2003, according to S&P Global Platts. A monthly OPEC report published Monday revealed Venezuela pumped 1.6 million barrels of oil per day last month. Production in January was down 20% from a year ago. The staggering decline is another sign of Venezuela´s economic and political crisis. The country is heading toward a presidential election in April that international critics are already labeling fraudulent. Venezuela has more crude oil than any other

The picture should start to come clear any day now. The London Express, which often reports things that nobody else has heard of, not even on the internet where there are no editors and anything goes, reports that the Illuminati is real and is secretly running the world from behind the scenes. It’s a relief to learn that someone is running it, and the Illuminati is a group of 6,000 members — all world leaders, of course — led by a ruling council of five Americans, five Western Europeans, a Russian and an Indian.

Legendary Hollywood actor and comedian Bill Murray praised the GOP tax cuts law, slammed identity politics, and applauded the reckoning against sexual abusers in Hollywood in a CNBC interview. “How can Kristen Wiig make everyone laugh?” Murray asked of the Saturday Night Live star, denouncing an identity politics he said makes being a comedian “harder and harder.” “She’s not thinking about being political, she’s thinking about what resonates and what is common to all of us, and I think that’s harder and harder to do because people are trying to win their point of view as opposed to saying ‘What if I

London - A London court will rule on Tuesday whether it would be in the interests of justice to pursue action against WikiLeaks´ founder Julian Assange for failing to surrender to bail back in 2012. If the judge rules in his favour, then Assange, 46, would be free to leave the Ecuadorean Embassy in London where he has been holed up for more than five years. However, he might still elect to remain in the embassy, where he has been granted political asylum, because he fears Britain would arrest him under a U.S. extradition warrant, the existence of which has neither been

There is a saying ´one good turn deserves another´ - and in Pastor John Greenaway´s case, it has proved to be true. He and his family gave shelter to a homeless man in 2016, after a chance meeting in a faith mission book shop. Belfast man Melvin Boyd had fallen on hard times, but said once he met Pastor Greenaway´s family and began living with them, his life changed. In turn, Mr Boyd changed a life when he offered the pastor, who needed an organ transplant, one of his kidneys. (snip) In their first broadcast interview, Mr Boyd said living on the streets was

Washington - Tea party Republicans arrived in Washington seven years ago with a clear, loud message from angry voters: Slash spending. But once again, spending is going way up. “Part of our job right now (is) that we keep pounding that Republicans still stand for fiscal responsibility,” said Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., who chairs the House Republican Study Committee, a coalition of conservatives. But he was on the losing side as the House early Friday cleared a massive two-year spending package that President Donald Trump quickly signed into law. Sixty-seven Republicans voted against the two-year budget plan that became law Friday, but 167

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”

Former President Barack Obama demanded unspecified “common-sense gun safety laws” after the Florida school shooting on Wednesday that left 17 people dead. “We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change,” Obama wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. (Snip) Obama did not specify what exact actions he is calling for, or whether they would have prevented Wednesday’s tragedy.

Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah.

Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

The Prince of Wales appears to have made a dig at US president Donald Trump while speaking about the need to protect the world´s coral reefs from climate change. Trump once declared global warming as a ´hoax´ and withdrew the United States from the Paris climate change agreement almost as soon as he entered office. Speaking at an event held this morning in London, Prince Charles spoke about the urgent and pressing need to unite in order to protect the world´s coral reefs against the combined threats of climate change, pollution, plastic and over fishing.

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

Washington - There is "ample evidence" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, but only special counsel Robert Mueller can decide if it´s enough to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday. "There is already, in my view, ample evidence in the public domain on the issue of collusion if you're willing to see it," Rep.

"The No. 1 job in America ... is someone who doesn´t understand the people, and really don´t give a f**k about the people,” James said in a video recorded last month with ESPN’s Cari Champion and fellow NBA player Kevin Durant.

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons. The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. Administrators considered him enough of a potential threat that one teacher said a warning

President Trump’s legal team is citing a three-pillar argument to convince investigators, and the public, that President Trump shouldn’t sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •
