    President Trump on Sunday suggested that it was Congressional Democrats and their questioning of Michael Cohen that may have led to the outcome of last weeks summit meeting with North Korea. In a tweet Trump said: For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the walk. Never done when a president is overseas. Shame! The summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was abruptly cut short Thursday after...

    A former ranking North Korean official who defected to the West praised President Donald Trumps decision to walk away from his second summit with Chairman Kim Jong-un during talks in Hanoi, Vietnam, last week, saying it would have been wrong to lift billions of dollars worth of sanctions in exchange for Pyongyang shutting down just one nuclear facility. Thae Yong Ho said in an interview with Fox News that the president was absolutely right that he cannot give up these sanctions unless Kim Jong-un promises even further denuclearization offers." Thae, from his new home in South Korea, added that POTUS...

    I think that this administration does an excellent, a great job. This is not an assumption, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Fox News Americas Newsroom. I have a feeling that this U.S. administration clearly understands the possible danger of Putin. Poroshenko spoke out against Putins hostilities toward his country and said Putins only goal was to re-establish the glory of the Russian Empire.He wants to renew, to restore the Russian empire, the Soviet Union and he does not have any red line for reaching these results, Poroshenko told co-host Bill Hemmer.Wednesday marked five years since a popular uprising that...

    CNN)Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren introduced legislation Wednesday seeking to stop the US from launching a first-strike nuclear weapons attack on another country. Warren, of Massachusetts, and Rep. Adam Smith of Washington -- both of whom are Democrats -- introduced separate, but identical, bills in their individual chambers Wednesday. "By making clear that deterrence is the sole purpose of our arsenal, this bill would reduce the chances of a nuclear miscalculation and help us maintain our moral and diplomatic leadership in the world," they wrote in a joint statement.

    Iran on Saturday launched a ballistic missile that can deliver nukes and the near-complete silence of the press aside, its a big deal. The latest test disclosed, once more, the flaws in the Iranian nuclear deal and the confusion of our European allies, who are alarmed by the mullahs behavior but fear losing the deal that enables it. The Iranian regime has just test-fired a medium range ballistic missile thats capable of carrying multiple warheads, Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted Sunday, adding: This test violates UNSCR 2231 the United Nations Security Council resolution that made the nuclear deal...

    New satellite images obtained exclusively by CNN reveal North Korea has significantly expanded a key long-range missile base located in the mountainous interior of the country, offering yet another reminder that diplomatic talks with the US have done little to prevent Kim Jong Un from pursuing his promise to mass produce and deploy the existing types of nuclear warheads in his arsenal. The satellite imagery offers evidence that the Yeongjeo-dong missile base and a nearby, previously unreported site remain active and have been continuously upgraded, underscoring the reality of just how far apart Washington and Pyongyang are on the issue...

    ...When his candidate for governor, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, fell to Gov. Rick Perry, he switched his support to Democrat Bill White. Madden is one of a number of former Hutchison supporters who have crossed parties to support the former Houston mayor, including Houstonians Matt Simmons, CEO of Simmons & Co. International, and James Flores, CEO of Plains Exploration & Production Co. In a Republican-red state like Texas, White has to lure crossover voters, big-ticket and otherwise, if he is to have any chance at all of defeating the longest-serving governor in Texas history, although wooing Republicans and independents...

    Important note: this terror plot to murder thousands of American holiday shoppers was planned  by essentially the same Stalinist terror-sponsors who rule Cuba today and who receive an estimated $4 billion annually from the U.S.-- thanks mostly to Obama’s executive orders that loopholed the “Cuban embargo” half to death. For his transition team, President-elect Trump has just appointed a former Treasury Dept. official who probably ranks as the most knowledgeable American on how horribly the letter of U.S. law [the Cuban embargo] has been violated by Obama in his “opening” to the terror-sponsoring Castro regime. Consequently, nobody is better...

    WASHINGTON North Korea is moving ahead with its ballistic missile program at 16 hidden bases that have been identified in new commercial satellite images, a network long known to American intelligence agencies but left undiscussed as President Trump claims to have neutralized the Norths nuclear threat. The satellite images suggest that the North has been engaged in a great deception: It has offered to dismantle a major launching site a step it began, then halted while continuing to make improvements at more than a dozen others that would bolster launches of conventional and nuclear warheads. The existence...

    Vice President Pence on Tuesday declined to rule out the idea of deploying nuclear weapons in space, saying that the current ban on their use is in the interest of every nation but that the issue should be decided on the principle that peace comes through strength. The new positioning comes as the Trump administration moves to potentially exit a major nuclear weapons pact with Russia and possibly bolster U.S. military operations in the heavens by forming a Space Force. Pence argued that the Space Force is critical for U.S. national security as China and Russia expand their presence in...

    OSLO - The leader of a daring World War Two raid to thwart Nazi Germany's nuclear ambitions has died aged 99, Norwegian government officials said on Sunday. Joachim Roenneberg, serving behind enemy lines in his native Norway during the German occupation, in 1943 blew up a plant producing heavy water, or D2O, a hydrogen-rich substance that was key to the later development of atomic bombs. Picked by Britain's war-time Special Operations Executive to lead the raid when he was only 23 years old, Roenneberg was the youngest member of Operation Gunnerside, which penetrated and destroyed key parts of the heavily...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Russia was ready to "annihilate" any attacker who would use nuclear weapons against it, but would never strike first. "An aggressor should know that vengeance is inevitable, that he will be annihilated, and we would be the victims of the aggression. We will go to heaven as martyrs, and they will just drop dead. They will not even have time to repent for this," he said. In March this year Putin unveiled an array of new nuclear weapons in one of his most bellicose speeches in years, saying they could hit almost...

    North Korea warned the US in a recent letter that talks are "again at stake and may fall apart," adding that it may resume "nuclear and missile activities" if its demands are not met. President Donald Trump unexpectedly canceled what was expected to be Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's fourth trip to Pyongyang last Friday due to insufficient progress on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The decision was preceded by a "belligerent" letter that criticized his administration for failing "to meet (North Korean) expectations in terms of taking a step forward to sign a peace treaty," CNN reported Tuesday,...
