  • 70% of North Korea’s Submarines have Left their Bases, Can’t be Located

    08/24/2015 5:22:09 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 45 replies
    North Korea couldn’t be crazy enough to actually start something with America or South Korea, could they? If so, they would be the ant under our magnifying glass, and would perish before they knew what hit them. Donald Trump said the other day that Kim Jong-un is either “mad” or a “genius,” because whenever he makes a threat the U.S. is forced to respond in defense of other countries, and this move alone might just clarify one of those adjectives. Apparently, dozens of the North’s subs have left their bases, and nobody can track their whereabouts. I’m leaning towards “mad.”

    Congressman Charlie Rangel who is quick to slander the tea party with charges of racism, was a guest on Monday's "The Ed Show" on MSNBC, where he made a statement that appeared to be startingly racist: "I was in combat, and I’m telling you, I saw more dead people, but I never was moved until I saw dead people that looked like me in my uniform." Rangel was on the show to discuss the police who turned their backs on Mayor De Blasio during Sunday’s funeral for slain New York Police Department officer Wenjian Liu. When asked to comment, Rangel...

    Sheriff with a heart of gold treats boy, nine, to the hunting trip of a lifetime - after the boy mistakenly sent an adorable letter to the wrong state A 9-year-old Pennsylvania got the hunting trip of a lifetime after mistakenly writing to writing to a sheriff 600 miles away in South Carolina. Alex Collins' mother saw a Facebook post by Chester County Sheriff Alex Underwood's program to take small children hunting and fishing and little Alex wrote the sheriff a heartfelt letter. He explained that he desperately wanted to learn to hunt, but he didn't have anybody to teach...

    KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - President Obama apologized to a military couple in Hawaii after his golf outing forced them to move their wedding ceremony at the last minute. Natalie Heimel and her now-husband Edward Mallue, Jr. are Army captains who met at West Point. They got engaged nearly a year and a half ago. The couple had planned to tie the knot on the 16th green at the Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course. On their way to the rehearsal dinner the night before Sunday's wedding, however, the Schofield Barracks soldiers received an urgent phone call. "You can't have your wedding on...

    If the left can’t get around the First Amendment one way, it will find another way around it. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley made national news last year when he fought to pass and signed a tax bill that levied a tax on Marylanders, businesses and churches for the amount of “impervious surface” they have on their property.Though the O’Malley administration calls it a “fee,” it is commonly called the “rain tax” throughout the state. It is wildly unpopular and the promise to fight to repeal the tax was a large factor in Maryland electing Republican Larry Hogan governor this...

    Earlier this week, Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman wrote about the ongoing saga in Seattle in the wake of the Percy Harvin trade. Specifically, some Seahawks players think third-year quarterback Russell Wilson is too close to the front office, and doesn't always take blame for his mistakes. Then there's this: "There is also an element of race that needs to be discussed," Freeman wrote. "My feeling on this -- and it's backed up by several interviews with Seahawks players -- is that some of the black players think Wilson isn't black enough." We talked about Wilson's blackness on the Eye on...

    Barely a week after being diagnosed with Ebola, Texas nurse Amber Vinson is free of the deadly virus, her family said on Wednesday night. “We are overjoyed to announce that, as of [Tuesday] evening, officials at Emory University Hospital and the Centers for Disease Control are no longer able to detect virus in her body,” read a statement from a family spokesperson. Jason McDonald, a CDC spokesperson, told Yahoo News late Wednesday that he was not aware of Vinson's recovery. “Healthcare provider will determine by diagnostic whether a patient is free of Ebola virus,” McDonald said in an email. “We...

    Hillary, don’t ever change. Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told a Las Vegas crowd Monday night that more needs to be done to assure young people can achieve their dreams and free students from onerous college debt “that can feel like an anchor tied to their feet dragging them down.”“I think our young people deserve a fair shot,” she told about 900 people gathered in a Bellagio resort ballroom for the annual UNLV Foundation dinner benefiting the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Maybe Hillary should listen to some of those students. Hillary Clinton is appearing at the...

    Our nation is supposed to be a republic governed by laws- not men. Our elected officials are supposed to create and enforce the laws, not serve as the laws themselves. However, at a time when the mainstream media focuses on the pending corruption charges against Texas Governor Rick Perry for exercising his right to veto, they are deafeningly silent on the heinous and inexcusable corruption going on in Colorado as Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper threatens to commute the sentence of a convicted multi-murderer if he does not get re-elected. You may recognize the name as the name of the Democrat...

    Next to the immediate threats posed by Ebola and global jihad, climate change pales by comparison Speaking at the Wind Technology Testing Center in Boston Massachusetts on October 9th, the windsurfer and windbag-in-chief himself, Secretary of State John Kerry, pronounced that climate change, if left unaddressed, will result in the end of times: “Life as you know it on Earth ends,” Kerry said. Last February, Kerry claimed that climate change was the world’s “most fearsome” weapon of mass destruction. Not nuclear arms in the hands of the terrorist sponsoring regime of Iran or in the hands of ISIS or al...

    You may have read of the shocking allegations made by Rep. Duncan Hunter on Tuesday when he claimed that 10 Islamic State terrorists had been apprehended at the southern border. “There’s nobody talking about it,” Rep. Hunter told Fox. “If you really want to protect Americans from ISIS, you secure the southern border. It’s that simple…They caught them at the border, therefore we know that ISIS is coming across the border. If they catch five or ten of them then you know there’s going to be dozens more that did not get caught by the border patrol.” Not so, says...

    Warren Buffett is predicting that Hillary Clinton will not only run for president in 2016, but that she will also win the election. 'Hillary is going to run,' said the billionaire investor while speaking at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit in Laguna Niguel, California, earlier today. He then went one step further, telling the audience, 'Hillary's going to win.' uffett famously supported both President Barack Obama and Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary, going to great lengths to let people know how capable and talented he believed both candidates were in a 2007 interview with The New York Times.

    The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.

    This will certainly go down as one of the last minute, whistle beating acts of the Supreme Court. Very nearly on the eve of the recently extended – and highly contentious – early voting period in Ohio, the Supreme Court has delivered a 5-4 decision overturning a lower court’s ruling and forcing the state to file a new petition if they want the case heard. SCOTUSblog has the details. With just sixteen hours before polling stations were to open in Ohio, the Supreme Court on Monday afternoon blocked voters from beginning tomorrow to cast their ballots in this year’s general...

    Yes, let’s all be filthy and disgusting so as not to offend Muslims. Finger lickin’ submission. A customer at a Leicester branch of KFC has said he was “shocked” when he was refused a hand-wipe as it might offend other restaurant-goers. Graham Noakes, 41, said he was astonished when staff at the fast food chain’s outlet in St George’s retail park refused to give him a hand-wipe because it was against its Halal policy. (more here) Staff said this was because the wipes are soaked in an alcohol-infused liquid. Alcohol is forbidden in the Muslim Holy book, the Quran. This...
  • Actor James Woods calls for attorney general to investigate Memphis Kroger mob attack as hate crime

    09/11/2014 5:20:57 PM PDT · by Altura Ct. · 21 replies
    To some who watched a grainy cellphone video of Saturday’s brutal mob attack outside an East Memphis grocery store, the math is simple: Black assailants plus white victim equals hate crime. As further proof, these critics point to the inelegant remark made by a black woman who watched and videotaped the crowd of black teens pouring across a Kroger parking lot. As several teens kicked a white Kroger worker who curled into a fetal position to protect himself, the woman can be heard on the video laughing and saying, “They got a white dude.” But the insistence that the federal...

    Francois Hollande's former partner says that France's socialist president hates the poor, in her potentially explosive memoirs she penned after the collapse of their relationship earlier this year. In Merci Pour Ce Moment ('Thank You For This Moment') Valérie Trierweiler claims that, in private, the leftist leader refers to the less wealthy with scorn, calling them "the toothless". "He portrays himself as a man who does not like the rich. In reality, the president does not like the poor," Trierweiler wrote. "He, the man of the left, calls them 'the toothless', very proud of his humour." In another passage leaked...
