      I posted this on the Microsoft thread.
      I just listened to this 30 Min. video. I really do like her sarcasm as she goes through Pompeo’s speech. His speech upset me too. I bet if we put up to a national vote whether we’d like to keep Snowden and Assange safe here, or Pompeo and his CIA, Snowden and Assange would win hands down. If you need something to listen to while making ham, or deviled eggs give this a try.

      and Curry Worsham replied with: “Uh-oh. Just looked him up. Pompeo is a member of the Distinguished Advisory Committee of the Wisconsin Committee on Foreign Relations, which is a member of the American Committees on Foreign Relations, which was founded by… you guessed it,,, The Council on Foreign Relations.”

      Explains a lot, doesn’t it?

        I sent our president a message about our concerns with Pompeo. I encourage others to do the same. He wants to hear from us. He listens.

        Another Kevin Shipp, former CIA speaks out about the deep state matrix; CIA (their non-disclosure agreements for life they trick companies into signing for government contracts), the military industrial complex, Silicon Valley & the Media (seeding false stories). The secrecy agreements become weaponize threats of prison once signed and in their matrix. His interview is 1 hour special video.

      You don’t actually think he was going to not defend the agency he is in charge of. There are certain trade-offs in politics and I realize how that sounds.

      The only way to reform is from within and trust me when I say this…Assange will publish more info during Trumps administration that can be taken out of context or hurt people..

      The WikiLeaks on Crooked Hillary and Podest were not National Security and such, so fine…but look at the leaks already during Trumps tenure and how they can be twisted by a corrupt media….It’s a fine line…

    I thinks we will have to take out the Nork Subs first. Our fleet will stay in deep water so the Norkies Subs will not be able to hide on the bottom. Once they are terminated the fleet can move in.Their army will be obliterated before they can even get going across the DMZ. It is going to be a massacre.

      I do hope you are right, because that would be epic, bigly epic.

        From what I can tell that is how it will go down. Their subs can be found and eliminated in deep water. Over their depth limit. The Norks are dead men walking now. We have a lot of new toys to trot out. Next….Iran. JMO. Enough was enough.

          And Pakistan knows it’s on the agenda too now that the MOAB was dropped. Nork, Pakistan, Iran. A nuclear rat line. And India’s leader, Modi, is reputable Trumps bff. This whole geopolitical game is so interesting.

          Ya’ll do realize why there was a MOAB drop in Afghanistan right? It was not ONLY taking out the tunnels BUT ALSO to send a little message ot NoK…IF there is any massing of any type of military hardware or troops, the devastating effect of dropping NOT 1 BUT MORE THAN 1, would have a psychological impact on Kim…did ops along side RoKs in Vietnam and they are some REAL nasty Bastards and ANY SHOW OF STRENGTH turns the tables. I truly believe that PDJT has done just that to NoK…Anything else,and it’s just air..And yes, the subs will be taken out first for sure. Have bought more pop corn and Irish Scotch to enjoy the show because we are about to see the Greatest Show on Earth with PDJT…Happy Easter everyone and if what we have been talking here goes down, then God Bless, If it doesn’t then Peace will prevail in this world and the Swamp will be drained for sure…

      The Nork artillery will only get off a few rounds before they are eliminated. If they shoot they are done on the quick.

    Libprogs have been squawking about ‘the cost’ of the MOAB that was used.

    Some have been saying those bombs cost “$314 million”….others are saying “$16 million”.

    I have no idea where they’re getting those figures.
    But they are both wrong!
    Not even close.

    According to the Daily Caller, the cost of a MOAB bomb was $117,000 in 2003 when they were built.
    Today’s cost because of inflation…would be around $227,000.

    I’ve been seeing reports of a revised number for the ISIS casualties in Afghanistan, from the MOAB strike.

    Now saying “82 dead”…instead of the 36 that was previously reported.

    What did they did??? There was a Drudge headline for a few seconds that said they launched something, and it was linked to this:
    “North Korean Missile Seen at Military Parade: Xinhua”

    MsDemeanor posted this comment under the Gateway Pundit article titled Chinese Foreign Minister: Conflict Could Break Out Any Minute Over North Korea Apr 14th, 2017 6:27 pm

    I thought it was interesting. “I rarely watch National News on MSM but I did tonight. There was a segment about a man who escaped NK and has been living in SK for awhile now. He prints out thousands of flyers and attaches them, and a radio, to a large helium filled (what looks like a huge clear plastic garbage bag) and sends them into NK. He, himself, found one of these flyers that someone else sent over years ago…and is why he left for SK. There are many, on both sides, that desire to see Korea united as a single free country.”

    The commenters are having lots of fun with memes too.

      Ironically the South Koreans have wanted a united country as far back as 1953. I was in Seoul at the end of the War and they were constantly parading in the streets carrying signs about Unification, Go North and others. I have pictures of them, as well as many of the bombed out buildings and the Hahn River bridge hanging into the water, in my scrapbook.

      The American Forces had taken most of the Country up to the Yalu River (Chinese border) but then the Chinese entered the war and pushed us back to the original 38th parallel. The Country and families have remained divided since.
