    North Korea has expressed regret at US attitude in high level talks (AFP)

    Watch the market drop like a rock on Monday.

    Watch the Defecrats ho into their happy dance.

    Watch gutless Republicans in jump ship, turn on the resident and join the enemies of liberty and prosperity.

    Watch hope for a better future sink beneath the waves.

  3. I don't see how this headline is at all shocking or leads to any of the rest. We need to keep a boot on NK and on Iran as long as it takes. Me thinks Li'l Rocket boy may sink beneath the waves of another approaching tweet storm.

    1. I think the impication in the article above was not so much about N. Korea's "Rocket Man" as it was about the way the media never fails to portray anything the president does in the most unfavorable light possible. I believe the intention behind the article is to deflate confidence in the president 's agenda and in Mike Pompeo, the man President Trump chose to represent our interests in these international exchanges.

      At least that's the way it looks to me. I could be wrong, of course.

    How the United Kingdom Became a Police State

    Mises Institute, by Neema Parvini

    This article will demonstrate how the United Kingdom has steadily become a police state over the past twenty years, weaponizing its institutions against the people and employing Orwellian techniques to stop the public from seeing the truth. It will demonstrate, contrary to official narratives, that both overall levels of crime and violent crime have been increasing, not decreasing, as the size of the state in the UK has gotten bigger. It will also expose how the Labour government under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown from 1997 to 2010, deliberately obscured real crime data with estimated crime rates based on

    No TIES to EU! Brexit rebels Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and David Davis get down to business in open-necked shirts amid suited cabinet colle

    Daily Mail [UK], by Stewart Paterson

    The gloves - or rather the ties - were off yesterday as Brexit rebels united in a display of bolshie informality by wearing open-necked shirts during crunch talks with the Prime Minister In stark contrast to their suited colleagues, Brexiteers Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and David Davis dressed down for the meeting at Chequers. MPs met as Theresa May insisted she united warring factions in her team during the high stales showdown. But if the Brexit hardliners´ clothing was anything to go by, the politicians appeared anything but united. It came after the Prime Minister threatened to sack Foreign Secretary Mr Johnson.

    1. This is probably worth a good long look, because it could happen here any day now:

      It's already happened. The groundwork has been laid under the guise of the 'war' on drugs and the 'war' on terrorism. The horse has left the barn.

      Civil Libertarians have sounded the alarm on the security/surveillance State, for decades. The only part of the stratagem that remains, is for the State to to drop the facade.

    2. To drop the facade we'd have to drop a lot of platitudes about the function and efficacy of the police and military.

      Ain't going to happen while Trumpistas see them as the last line of defense against scary people of color.

  6. How do you guys feel about the stink the leftist press and their masters are now trying to raise about Representative Jim Jordan's supposedly "dubious association" with a long dead pedophile coach?

    M. Jordan, of course, is probably the most prominent and most dynamic member of the GOP Congressional Freedom Caucus, which of course makes him a prime target for the enemies of American sovereignty, liberty, economic prosperity, individual self-determunation, American ascendency, and conservatism in general.

  9. So what;s up with NK? Has President Tweety actually made progress or is he being played?
    The remains have not been returned.
    NK is upgrading its uranium facilities.
    Today L'il Kim called U.S. negotiating tactics "gangster like" (the irony).

    Is there any reason to have faith in this crowd?

    Katie Arrington thanks God, friend for saving her life after car crash

    Washington Examiner, by Naomi Lim

    Republican South Carolina state Rep. Katie Arrington credited God and her friend for saving her life during her first official public appearance since she was in a car crash just weeks after after beating Rep. Mark Sanford in the Republican primary for South Carolina´s 1st Congressional District. "When we braced for impact, we both braced to hold onto each other," Arrington told reporters, referring to Jacqueline Goff, who was driving the car they were traveling in when it was struck by another vehicle heading in the wrong direction down U.S. Highway 17. "God and Jackie were my saviors," she continued.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    I sure hope Katie will be able to campaign enough to win the election in the fall. Looks like the Democrats are getting smart enoough to use Muslim-style methods like partisans so fanatical they'll commit suicide just to take out a promising conservative candidate.

    Don't laugh. It really could be.

    1. So, you expect Democrats to employ suicide bombing against GOP candidates? Sounds just as legit as GOP operatives staging suicide bombings as false-flag operations.

      Don't laugh. It really could be.

    2. I think "Tariq" was being facetious. Putting on an act. How could anyone say a thng like that and mean it, unless they really were a jihadist?

    3. Much as the Right has proffered the existence of a 'Trump derangement syndrome'[the Left losing all sense of reality in the face of the current Administration], the same sickness exists on the Right [see the previous Administration].

      What 'Tariq' wrote isn't out of the norm for right-wing fanatics.

  12. I think we ought to pray for the lives and safety of those poor kids and their leader who've been trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand for 17 days. We need to pray especually hard for those brave divers who are tryng to rescue them one of whom has already died in the attempt.
