    SEOUL — The North Korean army said Thursday it had final approval to launch "merciless" military strikes on the United States, involving the possible use of "cutting-edge" nuclear weapons. In a statement published by the official KCNA news agency, the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) said it was formally informing Washington that reckless US threats would be "smashed by... cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear strike means". "The merciless operation of (our) revolutionary armed forces in this regard has been finally examined and ratified," the statement said.

Korea threatens to pull out its workers from Kaesong park SEOUL, April 4 (Yonhap) -- North Korea threatened Thursday to pull out tens of thousands of its workers from the joint inter-Korean industrial complex if South Korea continues to insult Pyongyang's dignity. The latest threat comes as the North has banned the entry of South Koreans workers and vehicles into the complex in the North's western border city of Kaesong for a second straight day, though it is allowing South Koreans there to return home. If South Korea keeps "vociferating about the zone, we will take...

    North Korea greeted the weekend by stating through its KCNA news agency that it is entering a "state of war" with South Korea. This seems like much more serious news than an earlier KCNA story about using nutritious leeks in seasonal dishes, but there's reason to be skeptical that NoKo's latest declaration means anything at all. The statement wasn't accompanied by an actual attack, which would have been the most obvious sign that North Korea was serious about this. Instead, it's just more chest-beating, this time in response to the "provocation" of the U.S. flying stealth bombers over South Korea....

    North Korea put its rocket units on standby on Friday to attack US military bases in South Korea and the Pacific, after the United States flew two nuclear-capable stealth bombers over the Korean peninsula in a rare show of force. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signed off on the order at a midnight meeting of top generals and "judged the time has come to settle accounts with the US imperialists in view of the prevailing situation", the official KCNA news agency said. On Thursday, the United States flew two radar-evading B-2 Spirit bombers on practice runs over South Korea, responding...

"We have to take seriously every provocative, bellicose word and action that this new young leader has taken so far" since coming to power, Hagel told a Pentagon news conference, referring to Kim Jong-un.

The North's official news agency KCNA published the joint statement issued by the government, political parties and other organizations. "From this time on, the North-South relations will be entering a state of war and all issues raised between the North and the South will be handled accordingly," it said.

    Recently, Republican Governors Rick Perry of Texas and Terry Branstad of Iowa appealed to those wanting to flee liberal California. “Move your business to our state,” they implore. “We’ll welcome you with open arms here.” They should be careful what they wish for. When my wife and I used to vacation in Colorado in the 1970s, I started noticing bumper stickers that read “Don’t Californicate Colorado.” The initial movement that spawned that sentiment was a way for Colorado residents to express their disapproval of how Southern California had exploded with seemingly unlimited development. However, since that time, “Californicate” has taken...

Peter Bethune was captain of the hi-tech Ady Gil when its bow was shorn off in a collision with a Japanese whaler it was shadowing in January. It sank two days later, but Mr Bethune now alleges he was ordered to scuttle it by Sea Shepherd head Paul Watson. Mr Watson denies the claim - the latest twist in a bitter row between the two.

With that said, meet Lisa Jackson, EPA administrator: Does Environmental Protection Agency Chief Lisa Jackson view her post as an activist position that can be used to spread America’s wealth? Jackson has given scores of speeches touting “environmental justice” and recently launched an initiative aimed at achieving “environmental justice,” a policy critics warn could be a ruse to spread the country’s wealth.

CNN Headline News debuted its "The Joy Behar Show" on Sept. 29, which included appearances by lefty comedian Jeanane Garofalo, CNN's Jack Cafferty and actress Bette Midler. Garofalo doubled down on her low regard for conservative 9/12 and tea party protesters, labeling them as racists. Cafferty went after President Barack Obama for his disregard of the carbon footprint his lobbying efforts in Copenhagen for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

    The Democrats have a new buzzword: “silly.” The next goal of the Democrats, according a recent Senate campaign fundraising letter, is to “end silly debates about whether tax cuts for the rich trickle down or global warming exists.” Silly debates? So if the Democrats get more Senate seats, there will be no more discussion about tax cuts or global warming. All manner of subjects will be closed. Because to disagree with a Democrat is just plain silly. Well, that certainly clarifies what Obama meant by “post-partisan,” now, doesn’t it? Thus is it demonstrated that the words “liberal” and “liberty” no...

When I read some of the trash articles making accusations that conservatives in general and Bill O’Reilly in particular were responsible for Tiller’s murder, the words which came to mind were “vile malevolence.” Accusations like this are examples of what psychologists call projection: the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people; especially : the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility as a defense against anxiety.

    As citizens' outrage over the torture memos heats up, and the US Congress is barraged with calls to appoint a special prosecutor, Americans may be about to commit an egregious miscarriage of justice. Republicans have now accused Democrats in Congress of having "blood on your hands too" in relation to the escalating calls to investigate. I would go further: not only do Congressional Democrats have blood on their hands – but so do we, the American people. And CIA agents may be about to be sacrificed to assuage their – and our – actual and associative guilt. The suddenly urgent...

Real Clear Politics national poll averages still place him two percentage points above Clinton with 45% to her 43%. Obama’s Rev. Wright controversy surfaced in the media on March 14. A Pew Research poll conducted between Feb 20-24 placed Obama ahead of Clinton 49% to 40%. The next Pew Research poll was conducted March 19-22, after the Wright controversy hit the airwaves.

Only 14 percent of Americans surveyed said they had a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in Congress. That is the lowest confidence level recorded in the history of Gallup polling on that institution, going back to 1973. The previous low was 18 percent in 1991, 1993 and 1994.

    The Democrats won both houses of Congress in November but the Left is still incredibly frustrated. Why? Because it looks like there WON'T be any impeachment of Bush. For one thing, the clock is working against impeachment since the Bush term has only two years to go. More importantly, the Senate doesn't have near the votes to convict. It takes a two thirds vote and even if Senator Johnson ever regains conciousness and every Democrat votes to convict, they still need 16 Republican votes. Of course the biggest impediment to impeachment is that you have to have an impeachable...

    <p>They believe there weren't any planes on 9/11, just missiles wrapped in holograms - and there weren't any London terrorists on 7/7 either. The new-wave conspiracy theorists aren't green-ink types: they're educated; they have secret service connections; they live in Highgate.</p>

    The American Left as "crisis cult" Clinical psychologist Robert Godwin proposes an interesting framework for understanding the increasingly bizarre behavior of the American Left at his very interesting website One Cosmos. Drawing on the work of psychoanalytic anthropologist Weston LaBarre, he posits that the left has become a “crisis cult” such as are found in societies whose bedrock assumptions break down in the face of the superior strength of foreign cultures impinging on their territory. Probably the most famous of the crisis cults are the cargo cults which developed in Melanesia. The Cargo Cults believe that manufactured western goods (‘cargo’)...

     In the very first chapter of her 2002 book, Slander: Liberal Lies About The American Right, Ann Coulter exposed the duplicitous character of those who “demand[ed] campus speech codes, an end to ‘intolerance,’ and ‘hate speech’ laws” while continually bearing-down on a single target when attacking conservative women – their appearance.  Now that Ms. Coulter’s latest book, ‘Godless: The Church of Liberalism, and her defense thereof on numerous television appearances, has put the author, herself, in the cross-hairs of the left, can her personal evisceration be anything less than assured?In her own prescient words, Coulter described the treatment liberals extend...

    Some Democrats, breaking ranks from their leadership, today said the death of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi in Iraq was a stunt to divert attention from an unpopular and hopeless war. "This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer" for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat. "Iraq is still a mess -- get out."

    Markos Moulitsas of The Daily Kos appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this morning to discuss the media and the conservative blogger who resigned from The Washington Post. Moulitsas makes it quite clear that he is a communist because he says there should be the same amount of liberal media that there is conservative media—even though liberal media obviously outweighs conservative media by a lot. Moulitsas blames the problems liberals have on the conservative media. Liberals are so delusional that they think there is a conservatively biased media. Perhaps the problem is that they have no plans, no ideas, and...

    EUROPEAN leaders have condemned statements by the Iranian President calling for Israel to be destroyed. Speaking in the Iranian capital Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Israel should be "wiped off the map", the official IRNA news agency reported. Support for the Palestinian cause is a central pillar of the Islamic Republic which officially refuses to recognise Israel's right to exist. "Israel must be wiped off the map," Ahmadinejad told a conference called "The World without Zionism", attended by some 3,000 conservative students who chanted "Death to Israel" and "Death to America". Under reformist President Mohammad Khatami, whose eight-year tenure ended earlier...
