Four Minutes to Destiny

While doing research for today’s screeds, I came across a tidbit that said in the event that little pig in North Korea launched a missile, the president would have approximately four minutes to decide whether it was a nuclear device and what to do about it. We all know what Obama would have done… go on vacation somewhere. Trump has largely been a disappointment, allowing one adviser after another lead him in different directions. His vacillating on a promise to deport illegals of all ages may be due to Javanka having his ear. In any case, I think he’s smart enough to leave the military decisions to the professionals, something that Barry never would have done, seeing how he’s the smartest man who ever lived and all.

The United Nations wants to do what they always do in a crisis… blame Israel and grab US taxpayer money. The resolutions they churn out are as useless as tits on a boar hog, as my grandfather used to say. W wasted 14 long months getting resolution after resolution from the UN, just to try to satisfy the democrats, which is always a fool’s errand. Saddam must have thought we were a bunch of fools as he hid his chemical weapons and military ordnance in Syria before we finally took decisive action.

My fear is that Kim Jong Un cares nothing about the consequences of an attack on Guam, Japan, or mainland USA. He’s like a modern day Caligula, having absolute power of life and death over an entire country. He allows people to starve while he hoards a massive food supply for himself and the army that keeps him in power. He has built a system of hardened shelters deep underground and could survive for a very long time if he had to. This clown is famous for killing his own family, what does he care about millions of innocent people?

Emergency Security Council Meeting Called

The latest test, which nuclear weapon experts estimated was seven times more powerful than the bomb the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima, Japan in 1945, was condemned by Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who called the act a “serious breach” of the country’s international obligations.

North Korea Nuclear Progress Puts Iran on Renewed Pathway to Bomb

Sources told the Washington Free Beacon that Pyongyang continues to stockpile illicit nuclear material on Iran’s behalf in order to help the Islamic Republic skirt restrictions implemented under the landmark nuclear deal

North Korea’s latest nuclear test of a hydrogen bomb has roiled Trump administration officials and led President Donald Trump to consider multiple options for war. However, it also has renewed fears among U.S. officials and foreign policy insiders about Pyongyang’s long-standing relationship with Iran, which centers on providing the Islamic Republic with nuclear technology and know-how.

On Tuesday North Korea was observed moving an intercontinental ballistic missile towards its west coast. The North Korean officials moved the missile at night to avoid detection.

    Clinton blasts Bernie Sanders for inspiring ‘Crooked Hillary’ attacks

    According to excerpts that have surfaced online, Clinton accused Sanders of resorting to “innuendo and impugning my character” during the contentious primary because the Democratic socialist “couldn’t make” a policy argument against her.

    “Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign,” Clinton wrote.

    Politico: Donald Trump’s ‘Hire American’ Policies Helped Americans Get Jobs

    President Donald Trump’s “Hire American” policy forced companies to raise wages and recruit sidelined Americans for lower-skilled jobs during the summer season, says an article in Politico.
    Trump’s success was highlighted by the H-2B program, which allows companies to import low-wage workers for seasonal jobs in the United States, and which also helps cut wages for full-time American workers. The annual inflow is formally limited to 66,000, and the resident population is roughly 115,000, but House Speaker Paul Ryan pushed loophole laws in December 2015 and in May 2017 to sharply raise the limit.

    Appeals court, 2-1, gives Texas OK to use new voter ID law

    A divided federal appeals court has stayed a lower judge’s ruling barring Texas from implementing a revised version of its voter identification law.

    A panel of the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals voted, 2-1, to allow Texas to use the revised voter ID measure known as SB 5 for this November’s elections.

    “The State has made a strong showing that it is likely to succeed on the merits. SB 5 allows voters without qualifying photo ID to cast regular ballots by executing a declaration that they face a reasonable impediment to obtaining qualifying photo ID. This declaration is made under the penalty of perjury,” Judges Jerry Smith and Jennifer Elrod wrote in a joint order Tuesday. “The State has made a strong showing that this reasonable-impediment procedure remedies plaintiffs’ alleged harm and thus forecloses plaintiffs’ injunctive relief.”

    New York Daily News Sold For $1 To Owner Of LA Times

    New York Daily News, New York City’s “working class” tabloid, once boasted a circulation of two million readers a day in the 1940s. Readership has now been reduced to the low hundred thousands. Recent layoffs to reduce the newspaper’s staff along with real estate moves were implemented to offset plateauing digital growth and low print circulation.
    Although financial terms were not disclosed, The New York Times reported that Tronc bought the almost century old newspaper for $1 (yes, one dollar) and the assumption of over $30 million in liabilities.

    What Tronc gets in return is 49.9 percent ownership of the New York Daily News’ 25-acre property in Jersey City, N.J., where their printing plant is located.
    Mortimer B. Zuckerman, New York Daily News previous owner, bought the paper in 1993 for $36 million.
    Trump Killed the New York Daily News

    The Daily News was a tabloid. Tabloids play to the working class. But as the Dems became a leftist elite, they no longer spoke the same language. And the Daily News was out to sea.

    Now, many News staffers and alumni feel like the air has been sucked out of the room, and they are perhaps coming to terms with the notion that Trump is more popular with segments of their readership than they thought, even in deep blue New York.

    The Daily News had no base left. Its hate covers were popular with progs who didn’t buy or read the paper. And so here we are. And the decline of the left-wing dead tree media rolls on.

      I’m scratching my head over the left-wing LA Times buying this paper.


    • freedom1781

      I work for tronc. (New job, same media group owned by tronc, the same dumbass company I worked for before.) My ultra-liberal co-workers and I were scratching our heads over this news. I didn’t know tronc purchased The Daily News for $1! Then again, since Tribune Co. changed its name to tronc last year, the lack of communication has increased tremendously. Things change weekly and the higher-ups never tell us peons anything.

    Rahm Emanuel creates ‘Trump-free zone’ for students at Chicago schools

    “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel said. “And I want you to know this, and I want your families to know this. And rest assured, I want you to come to school … and pursue your dreams.”

    Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool said the school system is a “sanctuary” for undocumented students.

    “We do not allow federal agents on these grounds and in this building,” he said, the Sun-Times reported. “You are safe and secure here to learn, to grow and to pursue your dreams and we hope that you do so.”

    Steve Harvey Teams with Ben Carson on HUD Project Despite ‘Vicious’ Anti-Trump Backlash

    TV star Steve Harvey is apparently pressing ahead with his commitment to help the Trump administration on its Housing and Urban Development initiatives despite the fierce backlash he received for meeting with then-President-elect Trump in January
    Steve Harvey Admits He Regrets Not Listening to His Wife About Skipping His Meeting With Trump

    “It was so vicious that it really threw me. I was being called names that I’ve never been called: Uncle Tom. A coon. A sellout. Because I went to see this man?! Which only happened because my business partner got a call from the Obama transition team, who said that the Trump transition team would like to set up a meeting,” Harvey told THR.

      The Left trashed anyone who refused to meet with Obama and now they trash anyone who agrees to meet with Trump. There’s no substance to them, just knee jerk.

    You Just Can’t Make This Up: Planned Parenthood CEO Says We Believe Every Person Has a Right to Live

    Cecile Richards says Planned Parenthood believes every person has the right to live.

    This was an odd statement considering in 2015–16 the group carried out more than 328,000 abortions.


    • chrissythehyphenated

      The key point to understand here is that Richards doesn’t believe unborn babies deserve to be called “persons.” Science says they are alive and human, but they are classified under the law as PROPERTY.

      Legal abortion is the ONLY so-called civil rights issue where a group of living, human Americans moved from being defined and protected as PERSONS under the law to being defined and disposable as PROPERTY under the law.

      Slaves and women went the other way. Those were true civil rights advances. Legal abortion is not.

    Mika: Hard to tell if people talking about Kim Jong Un or Trump
    Trump “hungry for war” and “hungry to make unhinged decisions”
    “When you talk about the rationality of the leaders . . . I honestly did not know which leader you were talking about, whether it was Trump or the North Korean leader? And that’s the sort of elephant in the room . . . So there’s this part here that is unspoken.”

    Dear Lord, Please STOP Hurricane Irma!

    Hurricane Irma has winds of 185 m.p.h. and the Caribbean storm is now larger than the size of the entire state of Ohio, noted Cleveland meteorologist J.D. Rudd. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has suspended all tolls on Florida roadways to “keep traffic flowing” as Hurricane Irma continues on a path towards the Sunshine State.
