    Here is a very interesting article from Last Year, March 2016.
    It showed a “atomic bomb” in small form (miniaturized). It indicated that North Korea was a nuclear power over a year ago. (If the “facts” in this article are truthful, it seems that we are being gamed with this crisis.)

    The article has comments by leading experts, so it was not just a pile of fake news.
    Strange that this was not part of the most recent info.

      Yes, just in the last hour or so it has been popping up everywhere that the info in the WaPo article about the miniaturized nuke has been known since I think 2013, but that BO refused to believe/acknowledge/act on it. It didn’t fit his narrative.

      I suppose this is another of those leaks saved for just the right moment to spring on us.


      • Sherlock says:

        There were articles about it back then, opinions mostly. Doesn’t mean we’re being gamed now. Bottom line, Trump has said since 1999 that NK would have to be dealt with, and that we couldn’t wait for them to get a nuke to do it. So, whether they had ’em two years ago, or are some months off (I believe this) it changes nothing. This has been an issue of Trump’s for a long time.


        • Sherlock says:

          BTW, as I pointed out two nights ago, the WaPo article does not say they just miniaturized. If you read it carefully it says the REPORT just came out, and within the report it says they have miniaturized. Big difference.


        • Sylvia Avery says:

          Well, for me what it changes is Obama lied to us. Again. About something pretty darned important. And even worse than lying to us he ignored it. You’d hardly think I would have the energy to feel one more ounce of outrage, yet I do.

      The WaPo lied by omission. If you can, re-read the WaPo article very carefully. They said the new report just came out, and within the report was information that the NKs had miniaturized. They did not say whether that info was new, only that the report containing it was new. So, they implied the miniaturization was also news. They tried to mislead. Surprise, surprise.


  8. MK Wood says:

    On the bright side this Nork thing may allow Trump tp declare martial law and then he can drain the swamp without any interference.

    Another day and another day without a WH press briefing. John Kelly showing his hand and lowering the media induced drama narrative through starvation, after all, the press never asked more than one question, Russia??? What a waste.

    Meanwhile the positive Trump message is being rolled out. Answer media hate of Trump and America with love America and morale boosting positivity.

    Here’s a snippet from Ann Coulter’s column today, which happens to be something I’ve been yelling about, so I’m glad she said it:
    “Entire tribes of immigrants are able to bully their way in and, as legal immigrants, are immediately eligible for a whole panoply of government benefits. Suddenly, there’s no money left in the Social Security Trust Fund, and Speaker Paul Ryan is telling Americans they’re going to have to cut back.”
    Ann is pleased with our president today.

    • I’ve been screaming about this for more years than I can remember.
      There is always money for other people but never any money for those that live in America.

      Never understood why people who come from places like Pakistan get free insurance, 500k to start a business and free school.
      It’s been a running joke by me for years. A guy brings his family here and now owns a gas station. He has 5 years to pay off the 500k. When they come looking for him, his nephew now works at the gas station and says his uncle is gone. But he has bills and can’t run it anymore. They then give him money. You guessed it, gone before he pays it back.

      But more to the point. There is no money for SS but we keep paying health care, housing and who knows what else for people illegally here.
      Refugees get 60k a year in benefits and a free ride. So where is mine? No one gave me money to start a business. No one paid for my school or my kids school.

      Lets reduce the whole government machine in one single home. First you pay the bills, the food and the mortgage. And you figure out all the medical costs. Then and only then do you decide if you have any money left over to give away.

      NOT the Government. They are bringing in extra people and giving them what many Americans will never have.
      Then they look at Americans and tell them they have to cut what little they were going to get.

        I’m such an idiot, I didn’t even realize until recently that it is a real live THING that they come here and we give them money to start a business. SMH. I can think of any number of people already here who would like that opportunity.

        • I may not be on the side of popular opinion, but when it comes to the money Americans come first.

          The trillion dollar stimulus would have been more effective and made more sense if you gave the money to people 21 and older. Someone told me that worked out to 100k each.
          Seniors shouldn’t have to make choices between his meds or hers or medicine or food.
          There should never be 1 million kids not eating 3 meals a day or living in poverty on the west coast.
          Someone shouldn’t lose their home because of bills even with insurance because one person has cancer.

          A family that has owned a farm for 100 years should lose to because the father dies and the kids can’t afford to pay the bills and the inheritance taxes.
          A kid shouldn’t have to lose a college education because his family makes more than they should and do not qualify for help.

          Maybe in the real world all these things will happen. But they should never happen in a country that pays to import people. That gives all those benefits to people illegally in the country. And who spend literally Billions in foreign aid to countries. That makes no sense to me.

          BTW, censorship is alive and well on Twitter. They recently shadowboxed her tweets and removed half of her followers.

    An interesting question has arisen in regard to the Awan Brothers. How did they get here? Did they have H1B visas? What was their immigration status? Michelle Malkin wrote a piece on this. She asked several of the Representatives who employed the Awans, but shockingly has received no response from any of them.

    Her piece was published in Townhall and NR. I posted the link on the Open Thread. I know everyone hates her and I totally understand that, but I thought this was an interesting and valid question.

    A little long winded but makes the point that once Kim of NK deploys his strategy of putting nukes on electric subs parked outside of DC, NYC, LA, Kim can invade Korea and the US will be stuck with a no win situation. So it is bad now or really bad later. It is the game of chicken that the US has predictably given in on. Trump is going to end the Nuclear program of NK. I believe it.

    This article is archived and it’s from 2005…The Awan brother makes an appearance in it and it shows what power he had as democrats in Congress were switching to the BlackBerry..The date 2005 is important and also the video capability Awan is doing for her kids homework…They have been completely compromised for a LONG time…

    Technology travels to House
    August 27, 2005|By Alex L. Goldfayn

    “Her calendar is sent directly to her BlackBerry, regardless of where she is,” said Imran Awan, the
    information technology director for eight Democratic members of Congress. “We also send her PDF documents [to brief her].”

    The kids have to enter a security code to log into the computer network on Capitol Hill.
    “Then the machine is authorized to talk to our machine,” said Awan, Bean’s IT manager.

    “Everybody wants to hack into government institutions, so you have to secure yourself.”
    Overall, for Bean, effective technology use can lead to greater transparency between government and its constituents.

  22. I had forgotten about this video of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

    IMO both President Trump & President Putin are leaders who intend to preserve their nation’s culture & perhaps that’s near the core of why the progressive Leftists (globalists/NWO) are so desperate to drive a wedge between President Trump & President Putin.
    Imagine the monkey wrench that Trump & Putin could wield were they able to work together slowing the islamic invasion of Europe & North America.

    I’m kinda wondering if that’s a good chunk of the motivation behind muh Russia bull #$%@.

      Sebastian Gorka is a gift that keeps on giving. He’s worth way more than whatever he’s getting paid.

      I can imagine millions of viewers (including some journalists who should know better)running to look up the meaning of Potemkin village as it is used in a political context.


  23. Sherlock says:

    Breitbart still going full on “get McMaster out.” They must be worried that they are losing, and that their attack has caused Bannon’s stock to go down. This is their lead story:

    I think it may well turn out as Sundance suggested–if they keep pushing too hard on this, they will invariably cast this as McMaster vs. Bannon. That’s what Breitbart seems be doing tonight. If McMaster wins, Bannon loses. Kind of like “This town ain’t big enough for both of us.” Would hate to see Bannon go. Would be a tragic loss, especially since most of the organized heat is coming from non-economic nationalist types primarily interested in Israel policy. The irony is that the organized resistance to McMaster is not Bannon-friendly at all.


    • Sherlock says:

      And as predicted by this site days ago, here comes the “Bannon v. McMaster” narrative, this one aimed at getting Bannon out.

      “Mr. Trump may worry about the damage Mr. Bannon and his allies could do to his Administration if he is no longer part of the White House team. But if his minions continue to vilify his colleagues inside the White House, how can anyone tell the difference?”

      I wonder why Mercer does not stop the BB hysteria. Is he behind it? Does it generate more clicks? Why are they doing this? Why don’t they direct their rage at the RINO in Congress? What exactly do they want re: Israel policy?

      I occasionally go there and it looks like the articles are poorly written garbage, and fewer people post comments now, and the boards are overrun by the leftist trolls. Operation Sharia Blue is under way. It’s never been that bad even during the primaries when Cruzin’ was stil in vogue. Most Trump supporters left. BB is circling the drain. So sad.
