    THE US and South Korea have carried out a series of chilling military drills in a devastating response to Kim Jong-un’s missiles tests. The allies undertook a military exercise, codenamed Max Thunder, in a bid to “sharpen tactical skills” and “test aerial combat capability”. Around 1,000 US airmen and fighter jets have teamed up with the South Korean Air Force in a joint combat training to ensure they are ready to combat the North’s provocations, the Pacific Command (PACOM) announced today. On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Our military is building and is rapidly becoming stronger than ever before. Frankly,...

    TWO NEW PIPELINES Before the civil war, two competing pipelines put forward by Qatar and Iran aimed to transport gas to Europe through Syria. Qatar’s plans were first put forward in 2009 and involved building a pipeline from the Persian Gulf via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. The gas field located 3000 metres below the floor of the Persian Gulf is the largest natural gas field in the world. Qatar owns about two-thirds of the resource but can’t capitalise on it fully because it relies on tankers to deliver it to other countries and this makes its gas more...

    Seattle, Wash., Feb 16, 2017 / 03:35 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A Washington state florist must pay fines and legal costs for conscientiously objecting to serving a same-sex wedding, as the state’s supreme court upheld a lower court’s decision on Thursday. “It’s wrong for the state to force any citizen to support a particular view about marriage or anything else against their will. Freedom of speech and religion aren’t subject to the whim of a majority; they are constitutional guarantees,” Kristin Waggoner, senior counsel with the group Alliance Defending Freedom who argued the case before the Washington Supreme Court, stated Feb....

    Former President Barack Obama spoke out through a spokesman praising protesters opposed to President Donald Trump's executive order barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US. Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis released a statement saying that the former president was "heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country." "Citizens exercising their Constitutional rights to assemble, organize, and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake," Lewis said. Though the statement avoided criticizing Trump directly, Lewis said that the president "fundamentally disagrees...

    The Secret Service has reportedly said it will open an investigation into Madonna after the singer told the Women's March on Washington that she had thought about 'blowing up the White House'. Donning a black p***yhat, the music icon caused controversy by dropping the F-bomb four times, sparking a slew of apologies from broadcasters airing the protest live. She went on to speak of her rage at the election result, telling the crowd she had thought a lot about 'blowing up the White House' but knew that it 'wouldn't change anything'. According to the Gateway Pundit, a spokesman for the...

    A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia There are now more than 40 House Democrats — 42, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference...

    "The essential difference between the two lies in this: the civil disobedient does, while the revolutionary does not, accept the general legitimacy of the authorities," What Civil Disobedience Is Not, Chapter 2, pg-44-45. Asked whether he would try to forge a relationship with the president-elect, Lewis said that he believes in forgiveness, but added, "it's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president." This type of language and talk is not about civil disobedience or anything of the sort. It is Revolutionary speech against the legitimate authority. Lewis is very dangerous and while he...

    On January 2, 2013 President Barack Obama signed and enacted into “law” HR 4310, also known as Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, which was part of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). A large majority of concerned Americans were focused on the indefinite detention of US Citizens without trial clause contained in the NDAA, and missed HR 4310 which received little to no attention. The US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948, more commonly known as the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, was first introduced as the Bloom Bill in December 1945 in the 79th Congress and subsequently passed...

    ...America—a country defined by the promise that whoever you are, you have the same chance as anyone else to rise, with pluck, industry, and talent. But they imagine wrong. The U.S. today lags behind many of its First World rivals in terms of mobility. A class society has inserted itself within the folds of what was once a classless country, and a dominant New Class—as social critic Christopher Lasch called it—has pulled up the ladder of social advancement behind it.... ...A complacent Republican establishment denies this change has occurred. If they don’t get it, however, American voters do. For the...

    CLEVELAND-- FirstEnergy is offering a $5,000 in hopes of tracking down the person who stole overhead wire and other electrical equipment in the Cleveland area. The suspects may be dressed as utility workers with hard hats and reflective vests, the company said in a news release on Monday. They even go door to door to tell residents about a power outage to stop customers from reporting problems to the Illuminating Company. That gives the thieves more time to the steal the wire. "The individuals are creating a safety and service reliability issue by cutting energized wires and letting them drop...

    Although the idea of the electors trying to reverse the vote is occasionally discussed — such as after the incredibly close 2000 election in which George Bush narrowly beat Al Gore — going “faithless” is exceedingly rare. More than 99 percent of electors throughout American history have voted as pledged, according to an analysis done by the New York Times. The last faithless elector reared his roguish head back in 2004, when a lone anonymous voter in Minnesota declined to vote for Democrat John Kerry and instead voted for Kerry’s running mate, John Edwards. The rogue’s vote was purely ceremonial,...

    As Russia continues to contend with sanctions from the United States and European Union after annexing Crimea in 2014, it has cast its eye on a new ally: China. The two countries are already aligning themselves for security purposes, a prime example being their position against the U.S. missile shield deployment plans in South Korea. Both China and Russia have stated that the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system situated in South Korea to contain North Korea harms their relations with the U.S. Combine this with China’s potentially shaky relations with America (depending on the results of the...

    Dear Freeper Friends, This whole election cycle has been one of the weirdest in our lifetimes. Maybe even historically haunting in the depths of corruption, scandal, and murders. As I read the many comments regarding the reopening or new investigation of Hillary Clinton and your excitement at the prospect of denying her the Presidency and possible jail time, I send out a word of conspiratorial caution. The truly minor details truly don't matter at this point. Connecting the major dots over the past year and a few historical checkpoints along the way, it becomes clear this latest 'leaked' letter and...

    Hillary Clinton will meet with Black Lives Matter activists in Cleveland on Friday, including DeRay Mckesson and Brittany Packnett. An aide told The Associated Press that Clinton and the activists will discuss how to "advance equity and opportunity in the African-American community." Clinton sat with Black Lives Matter protesters around this same time last year for a conversation that Mckesson described as "tough," but "in the end I felt heard." Clinton has been met with suspicion by critics of former President Bill Clinton's 1994 crime bill, which contributed to high incarceration rates of black people for nonviolent crimes. —Jeva Lange
