    According to the report, this is reportedly the first death that occurred due to bee venom apitherapy following anaphylaxis. As per the report of the year 2015, a 65-year-old lady lost her life after getting bee venom therapy from an unlicensed apitherapist in South Korea. Had the ambulance arrived more quickly and had the apitherapist administered adrenaline immediately after her symptoms got noticed then things for the woman could have been different. The doctors stated that the live bee venom treatments are not advisable as they are unsafe.

    Well, well, well. So Mister Trump is going to meet with the leader of North Korea. Stunning. For someone who's universally castigated as being a clueless, all thumbs palooka of a leader, this fellow sure gets a lot of things done. Very significant things. One might even say world transforming. You can hate him, berate him, and try very hard to minimize any of his accomplishments, but President Trump is starting to tip the arguments his way. The previous President of the United States was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for…what again? Still no one knows. Where I live in...
  • Meet the Press Panel Freaks: Incompetent Trump Handing NoKo a Victory

    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...
  • Trump’s North Korean Talks Linked To Threatened Steel Tariffs?

    03/11/2018 7:47:50 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | March 11, 2018 | Dennis Savery
    Why has North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un suddenly invited President Trump to talks that include Korean denuclearization?! A Korean nuclear breakthrough may have been achieved— a few days after Trump threatened tariffs on Chinese steel exports. Is there a linkage between Chinese steel and North Korea’s nukes? It's too early to even guess whether U.S.–Korean talks will resolve anything. However, they will bring the United States’ and North Koreas top leaders into direct talks for the first time since the end of Korean War hostilities in 1953. Before Trump even met with China’s President Xi last November, he had...

    Billionaire donor to the Democratic Party George Soros is apoplectic over the announcement that President Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un within the next two months to discuss nuclear disarmament of his country. "This never should have happened," Soros complained. "I paid $30 million to defeat Trump in the 2016 election. I've funded street protests and riots to try to undermine his administration. I've been working tirelessly with the FBI and media to generate a scandal that will drive him from office. That this Korean twit would wreck my efforts by yielding to Trump's pressures...

    ............. Truth breaks its leg when it lands in Korea. My main Facebook account was recently blocked for 30 days due to this innocuous comment. The comfort women is a great scam and information campaign. Unfortunately South Koreans do not realize they are the primary targets. They thought Japan and USA were the only targets. (Especially Japan for now). But now Chong Dae Hyup has started poisoning Vietnam-ROK relations, as they have with Japan-ROK relations. See the pattern? ROK is a Chong Dae Hyup target.

    So, it worked. President Donald Trump's inflammatory and bellicose 'Little Rocket Man' taunting at North Korea's Kim Jong Un has, astonishingly, brought the pint-sized dictator to the negotiating table. Trump's 'my nuclear button's bigger than yours' shock tactics scared the life out of almost everyone else, including me.

    The statement tonight by South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong is so jaw-dropping in significance it has left the professional diplomatic apparatus stunned. A year of targeted and strategic geopolitical policy execution by President Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has resulted in North Korean leader Kim Jong-un accepting denuclearization and requesting a meeting with President Trump to achieve terms therein. The possibility of a willingly denuclearized Korean peninsular is such an astounding policy victory; it is difficult to conceptualize. Here’s the statement from South Korea’s Chung Eui-yong: “Good evening, today I had the...

    South Korean President Moon Jae-in urged Tokyo on Thursday to act on the basis of remorse and reconciliation when managing bilateral ties and acknowledge the historical truth about women forced to provide sex for Japanese troops before and during World War II. Amid tension between Seoul and Tokyo over the future of a 2015 bilateral agreement on the “comfort women” issue, Moon described the women’s treatment as an inhumane crime and said that Japan, “the perpetrator, must not declare (that the issue) is over.” Moon made the remarks in a speech at an annual ceremony commemorating a movement for Korean...

    Members of the North Korean national cheerleading squad — who have been featured gleefully rooting at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics — are systematically forced to have sex with high-ranking members of Kim Jong Un’s twisted regime, according to a disturbing report. Behind the scenes, the troupe — dubbed the “Pleasure Squad” by insiders — are forced to perform sex acts on party leaders during their trip to the Olympics, a defector with knowledge of the sexual slavery told Bloomberg News.

    Days after South Korea’s chief proponent of regulating cryptocurrency, Jung Ki-joon, was found mysteriously dead in his home, South Korea apparently has decided not to crack down further on trading in bitcoin and other cybercurrencies. On Tuesday, Choe Heung-ski, chief of South Korea’s Finance Supervisory Service, told reporters that the government would support cryptocurrency trading rather than heavily regulating it or banning it completely.
