  • North Korea Has a Meth Problem, an Unstable Leader—and Nukes

    Financial Times ^ | 8/28/15 | Rob Garver
    Reports in South Korean media, however, relying largely on the stories of defectors, tell a very different story. In a country where food is often scarce, crystal meth has in recent years become so abundant that a serious addiction problem has taken hold. The crackdown is a recent phenomenon, but the production of crystal meth in North Korea has been known, if not widely discussed, for years. Last year, Vice News highlighted the country’s struggle with the problem, which apparently emerged from the government’s attempt to find new ways of raising funds in the wake of the collapse of the...
  • LEGENDARY ISLANDERS COACH AL ARBOUR, WHO WON 4 STANLEY CUPS, DIES AT 82

    ABC7 NYC ^ | 8/28/15
    UNIONDALE -- Al Arbour, who coached the New York Islanders to four consecutive Stanley Cup championships and ranks as the NHL's second-most winningest coach, has died, team officials announced Friday. He was 82. The cause of death is unclear, though Arbour was battling Parkinson's Disease and dementia. He had been living in Florida. Arbour transitioned from a successful 14-season NHL playing career as a defenseman to become one of the league's all-time best coaches. Beginning in 1973-74, Arbour led the Isles to 15 playoff appearances and won 119 playoff games - an NHL record with one team - over 19...

    Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) (also known as sexual orientation anti-discrimination policies) are the most devious tactic of the LGBT movement for stripping Christians of First Amendment protections and setting the stage for the “gay” takeover of any social, political or cultural entity. These SORs are the seed that contains the entire tree of the homosexual agenda with all of its poisonous fruit. Once implanted, the entire agenda emerges like the trunk and branches of a Manchineel tree, producing what looks deceptively like wholesome fruit but in fact is known in the island paradise in which it grows as the manzanita...

    Would Univision try Blackmailing Donald Trump? By Humberto Fontova 8/28/2015 A long time ago in a place far, far away the same Univision who boasts Jorge Ramos as their “Walter Cronkite” tried blackmailing Senator Marco Rubio into an interview. Seems strange, no? Well, during that long ago era (2011) and in that far-away place, Senator Rubio’s position regarding illegal immigrants was widely perceived as pretty close to Trump’s today. Hence the long ago and far away description—and hence the blackmail attempt by America’s top media proponent of illegal immigration. Univision is the biggest Spanish-language network in the U.S., reaching thirteen...

Business executive Robert “Hunter” Biden, reportedly an adviser to his father’s political career, told Breitbart News Monday that he suspected his enemies of creating a fake Ashley Madison account for him in order to discredit him. The email address provided for “Robert Biden’s” account matched a personal email address once used by Biden, the vice president’s son confirmed.

    President Obama distanced himself Friday from his administration’s allies calling opponents of the Iran nuclear deal “warmongers.” “At no time have I suggested that somebody is a warmonger, meaning they want war,” Mr. Obama said in a webcast with U.S. Jewish groups. But he said if Congress votes to kill the agreement next month, military action will be likely against Tehran. “At that point we really don’t have options,” the president said. “We’re kind of flying blind. The logical conclusion is that for any president, me or my successor, to make sure that Iran’s not getting a nuclear weapon, I’m...

    TAMPA — David Allison knew better than most his chances of surviving pancreatic cancer. His brother and sister had died from the disease. "I figured it was the beginning of the end," said the 75-year-old retired milk truck driver, who spends his winters in Oldsmar. Allison tried fighting the cancer with conventional chemotherapy and radiation in April. But the treatment made him weak. His appetite disappeared. He lost nearly 30 pounds. He had resigned to let the disease run its notoriously deadly course — until a doctor told him about something that sounded promising: a novel approach to chemotherapy that...

    I host a regional radio talk show. Every single show for the last six weeks, Monday through Friday, I've received calls, emails and Facebook comments during my broadcast from audience members starving for a new-and-improved nation. It's apparent from my vantage point behind the microphone that if you're even remotely glossy-eyed by presidential coverage in the media, you'd better buy some eye drops. The panorama of candidate content, communications and messaging is barely on the horizon, and soon to be in full view as the Iowa caucus and primaries in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and Nevada come into focus....

    So, more thoughts on Donald Trump’s candidacy, because I can’t stop being fascinated. You know the latest numbers. Quinnipiac University’s poll this week has Mr. Trump at a hefty 28% nationally, up from 20% in July. Public Policy Polling has Mr. Trump leading all Republicans in New Hampshire with 35%. A Monmouth University poll has him at 30% in South Carolina, followed 15 points later by Ben Carson. Here are some things I think are happening. One is the deepening estrangement between the elites and the non-elites in America. This is the area in which Trumpism flourishes. We’ll talk about...

    Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment, build advanced centrifuges, buy ballistic missiles, fund terrorism and have a near zero breakout time to a nuclear bomb. There was no surprise there. Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran Lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign. After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the...

    TORONTO - The Ontario government has been working on plans for high occupancy toll lanes on three Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area highways since 2013, but has kept most of the details secret. When the NDP filed a Freedom of Information request in early 2014 for detailed information on the work, which includes traffic models, most of the documents were to be blacked out or not released at all, according to a report obtained by the Toronto Sun. Ministry of Transportation staff prepared the note to give senior bureaucrats and the minister’s office a heads-up about the NDP’s “contentious” request....

    WASHINGTON, D.C., August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- When Planned Parenthood announced on Thursday that a new report cast doubt on a series of embarrassing undercover videos about trafficking in human organs, the mainstream media reported it uncritically. A few outlets even referred to the firm that conducted the analysis, Fusion GPS, as an "independent research firm" - although Planned Parenthood paid the organization an undisclosed sum of money for its findings. However, Fusion GPS is a Democratic-leaning political opposition research firm whose founder was once the registered lobbyist of a Middle Eastern sheikh known for burning the American flag during...

    A federal judge Friday ordered the IRS to turn over the records of any requests from the White House seeking taxpayers’ private information from the tax agency, delivering a victory to a group that for two years has been trying to pry the data loose. It’s not clear that there were any such requests — but Judge Amy Berman Jackson said the IRS cannot just refuse to say so by citing taxpayer confidentiality laws, known as section 6103 of the tax code. “This court questions whether section 6103 should or would shield records that indicate confidential taxpayer information was misused,...

    When he hasn’t been diving to the depths of the Black Sea in another demonstration of his he-man virility, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been busy overseeing an unusual import-substitution program. The plan – like his numerous manly man stunts – is intended to demonstrate no one can push around a proud Mother Russia. In a steady stream of declarations, Moscow has been closing its borders to goods imported from afar. It’s unusual because it appears to hurt Russians far more than it does the intended targets, and comes at a time Russia’s economy is in dire shape from the...

    Donald Trump is finally showing us more of his economic plan beyond the "Make America Great Again" slogan on his red hat. America has now learned: -- He wants to tax the rich more and the middle class less. -- He wants to lower corporate taxes. -- He wants to cut government spending and stop raising the debt ceiling. "The hedge fund people make a lot of money and they pay very little tax," Trump said in an interview Wednesday with Bloomberg. "I want to lower taxes for the middle class." In short, Trump is willing to raise taxes on...

    Amman, Jordan — Hacker-activists across the world have launched an online war against the so-called Islamic State, targeting the web-savvy jihadists’ vast Internet network of supporters and suspected sleeper cells. But bureaucracy at a wary FBI and stringent US laws against hacking are slowing these efforts to take down the IS web forums and social media accounts, experts and analysts say. As a result, they say, the jihadists are opting to base their web operations on US-hosted sites in order to take advantage of US legal protections. Various groups of anonymous citizen hackers are taking on the jihadists, including Ghost...

According to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, referred to familiarly as the “Corker-Cardin Bill” (after its two drafters, Senators Bob Corker and Ben Cardin), Congress had 30 days to review any agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 powers, and then vote on whether to approve it. That time frame was extended to 60 days when the international parties were unable to conclude a deal...

    Let’s imagine for a moment the kind of country that Donald Trump, the leading Republican presidential hopeful, wants America to become if he’s elected. “Trumpland” would feature a 1,954-mile-long wall along the United States’ border with Mexico, to be constructed after the deportation of more than 11 million undocumented immigrants. Of course, Trump would ensure that the U.S.-born children of these immigrants lose their right to American citizenship, so they’d be deported as well. As Trump sees it, with the border wall up and the immigrants out, the U.S. could be a great nation again

    In the years since the recession, the dream of a steady paycheck and a home in a nice neighborhood have become more elusive for many working-class Americans. While some may say that the lack of homeownership reflects changing values, owning a home remains an important tool for wealth building for most families. Yet it is particularly unattainable for low-income and minority households. The homeownership rate for households that fall below median income was less than 50 percent in 2014, for those who made above the median it was nearly 80 percent. And the gap in homeownership between whites, and blacks...

The abortion provider paid Fusion GPS, a D.C.-based opposition research firm headed by Glenn Simpson, to analyze both the shorter and the hours-long full videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.

According to the suit, filed in Los Angeles Federal Court on behalf of keyless car drivers Wednesday, there have been at least 13 deaths -- and a number of close calls -- from carbon monoxide poisoning after consumers failed to manually shut off their engines. The suit claims, “Reasonable drivers mistakenly believe that removing the Keyless...

Boehner made the comments at a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, according to the Daily Caller. "I think it's just wrong," Walker said. "Even though I don't know Sen. Cruz as well as I know some of the governors, I've grown to know him and like him and admire him...

    Semis and school buses. What could go wrong? I don’t even really know what to say about this. Is it insane? Yes. Is it further evidence that this country isn’t really interested in dealing with the threat of homegrown radical Islam? Yes. Is it a painfully obvious recipe for disaster? You bet. However, according to FOX 9 Minneapolis, it’s also the truth. A man whose name appears on the no-fly list thanks to his efforts to radicalize young people has been given a Class-A commercial driver’s license. That allows him to drive large semi-trucks that he can fill with whatever...

    A tale of two countries, one spurred to greatness by manifest destiny, the other crumbling under the weight of liberal anarchism The Kurds are surging in Iraq again. Kurdish fighters are successfully attacking both the Islamic state and other terrorist factions in Syria and Iraq; as we saw with the Kurdish capture of many Iraqi villages two days ago. The recent Kurdish push in Iraq occurs in spite of Turkey’s President Erdogan and his counterproductive air campaign against Kurdish fighters. To make matters worse Kurdish hopes for autonomy rights in Iranian held areas will more or less cease to be...

    Immigration is THE issue for 2016 Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern California—whose membership is in the tens of thousands—is illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...

    We noted early this month that Donald Trump's lead in the polling emerged quickly and ferociously — but that it was hardly unprecedented. In the 2012 cycle, both Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich saw similar surges into the lead, only to watch those leads recede just as rapidly a few weeks later. When we looked at this a few weeks ago, the comparison looked like this: Trump, like Perry and Gingrich, topped out at a bit above a 10-percentage-point lead. But then that lead held. Here's what that graph looks like now: We've increased the scale, because we wanted to...

    A well-intentioned article by Noah Rothman in Commentary Magazine offers that Donald Trump’s supporters are the right wing’s version of Obama’s vacuous “Hope and Change” acolytes. Says Rothman: “Trump is the right’s Obama, insofar as his policy preferences are ill-defined, pliable, and reflective of whatever the audience immediately before him wants them to be.” Such comparisons short-change Trump’s supporters.

    A New York Magazine writer and author of the 2014 book about Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, "The Loudest Voice in the Room," said in a recent televised interview the cable station's biggest star, Megyn Kelly, may not be re-engaging in public disputes with presidential hopeful Donald Trump because she doesn't want to hurt her chances to move to a more mainstream network, like CNN. Kelly, on the heels of widespread criticism of her debate night questioning of Trump – after which the billionaire businessman called her a "bimbo" in a tweet – went on what she and Fox officials...

    GREENVILLE, S.C.—As Donald Trump studied the crosstabs of a recent poll, his favorite hobby since he started leading in all of them, he was pleased, he said, to see that GOP primary voters perceive him as better equipped than his rivals to handle the economy, national security and even social issues. But one nugget in the survey nagged at the New York billionaire. “The only thing I did badly on was: Is he a nice person? I was last in terms of niceness,” he said. Campaigning deep in the Bible Belt yesterday, the businessman spun this as an asset, not...

    Hillary Clinton is taking aim at the Republican presidential front-runner, proclaiming Friday that “the party of Lincoln has become the party of Trump.” In a fiery speech to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) annual summer meeting in Minneapolis, Clinton told a cheering audience that the rest of the GOP presidential field is Donald Trump "without the pizzazz or the hair." Coming a day after a Trump speech where he had audience member pull his hair to prove it's his own, Clinton said, "A lot of people have said a lot of things about my hair over the years. So I...

    SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – After 43 years in prison, parole officials again say it is safe to free Charles Manson follower Bruce Davis. Parole commissioners recommended Thursday that Davis be paroled in the 1969 slayings of musician Gary Hinman and stuntman Donald "Shorty" Shea. It's the fourth time for such a recommendation, but the 72-year-old Davis remains imprisoned at California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo.
