North Korea: Can make “pre-emptive strike” on US

North Korea has sent a defiant message to Washington warning it has the power to conduct a “pre-emptive strike” on the US. Pyongyang made the comment in response to joint US-South Korea military drills.

North Korea’s foreign minister Ri Su Yong (pictured above) told the UN in Geneva that Pyongyang had the power to carry out a “pre-emptive strike” on the US.

Ri made the comment ahead of the UN Disarmament Conference held in the Swiss city on Tuesday.

He said joint US-South Korea military exercises, which started on Monday, were “unprecedentedly provocative in nature” and could spark a war.

“The DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) cannot but bolster its nuclear deterrent capability to cope with the ever-increasing nuclear threat of the US,” Ri told the Geneva delegation. “Now the DPRK has the power of deterring the US and conducting a pre-emptive strike as well if necessary.”

His rare speech sparked a swift rebuke from the US ambassador Robert Wood who urged Pyongyang to stop making threats and “rid itself of nuclear weapons.”

“We call on the DPRK to immediately cease all threats, reduce tensions and take the necessary steps towards denuclearisation needed to resume credible negotiations,” Wood said, referring to six-party talks that collapsed in 2008.

The US envoy also said the exercises with South Korea, which have been held for almost 40 years, were “transparent and defence-oriented” and in full compliance with the armistice ending the 1950-1953 Korean War.

The annual joint exercises had triggered military tensions in recent years between the Koreas.

Rhetorical threat amid further missile testing: North Korea fired two short-range Scud missiles into the sea off its east coast on Monday, according to South Korean officials….

Feds Threaten D.C. Officials with Prison If They Legalize Pot

Washington, D.C. – In a letter to D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser, two Republican congressmen Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chair of the appropriations subcommittee that handles D.C.’s budget, ominously warned not to move forward with legalization in the District, claiming that to do so would be a violation of federal law.

D.C. officials and federal lawmakers have sparred over whether Initiative 71, a ballot measure approved by 70 percent of voters in November, can legally take effect.

The letter arrived the same day that the voter-approved legalization measure is scheduled to become law, at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday. It sets the stage for a showdown between the will of the D.C. voters and their city and the federal government, attempting to enforce its will over that of the District’s constituents….

In an interview with the Washington Post, Rep. Chaffetz went further, saying that if Bowser and city officials are “under any illusion that this would be legal, they are wrong. And there are very severe consequences for violating this provision. You can go to prison for this. We’re not playing a little game here.”

The Costly Asylum Racket

We’ve had a lot of media comment about the bad effects of Obama’s executive orders admitting millions (yes, millions) of illegal immigrants and giving them welfare, Social Security, driver’s licenses, and a path to citizenship. Like many Americans, I realized the importance of this when thousands of unfamiliar people from a foreign country, without any advance notice, appeared in my community.

Then I attended an education conference where the asylum racket to admit millions of foreigners (long ignored by the media) was described by a knowledgeable speaker, Ann Corcoran. She started by asking questions of her audience.

Did you hear about the El Cajon, California Iraqi man who was found guilty of murdering his wife after writing a phony note from supposed Islamophobes telling the family to leave the U.S.? Did you know that the Tsarnaev Boston Bombers came to our country with false claims of persecution and then cashed in to receive $100,000 in U.S. welfare handouts?

Did you hear about the Oregon Somali Christmas tree bomber? Did you hear about the Somali youths who left Minneapolis to join Al-Shabaab and ISIS?

Did you know that a Burmese Muslim, within a month of his arrival in Utah, murdered a little Christian Burmese girl and was sent to prison for life? Did you hear that Alaska has received so many Muslim refugees that they have built a mosque in Anchorage?

If you didn’t hear those facts, put it down to the secrecy of the refugee racket, which does its best to operate under the radar. We heard about these asylum events from Ann Corcoran, who has made it her mission to ferret out the facts and publish them on her blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch.

The asylum immigrants are brought into our country and settled in 180 U.S. cities by nine contractors (pretending to be “religious charities”) and 350 subcontractors. These lucky immigrants are mostly selected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Iraq tops the list of refugee immigrants with 20,000 arriving each year, of whom 76 percent are Muslims. At least 10,000 are Somalis, and our State Department has announced that we will be admitting 10,000 Syrians this year, mostly Muslims.

Ann Corcoran doesn’t criticize the policy of admitting genuine refugees from persecution, but she does criticize the high numbers, the secrecy of the program, the lack of community involvement in the decision-making of where the immigrants will be located, and the large-scale admission of ethnic groups that have no intention of assimilating in America. This process is the result of the Refugee Act of 1980, the brainchild of Ted Kennedy, aggressively supported by Joe Biden, and signed into law by Jimmy Carter.

The contractors who bring in these immigrants are paid by the head with U.S. taxpayers’ money. The contractors have offices and plenty of staff to finance the resettlement of the aliens and are well organized to protect their foothold and their salaries.

They immediately expand the numbers of foreigners they are handling by bringing in the refugees’ family members. The first arrivals are labeled the “seed community.”

The big difference between these asylum refugees and other immigrants is that the refugees are entitled to all forms of government-paid welfare the minute they set foot in America, whereas our laws require ordinary legal immigrants to show that they have the means to support themselves and will not become a “public charge.” The feds even give the asylum immigrants start-up money for 3 to 6 months, which gives their contractor time to sign them up for subsidized housing, healthcare, food stamps, job counseling and training.

One of the biggest problems with this program is that the immigrant kids are quickly enrolled in public schools. We can blame this piece of mischief on supremacist judges, who ruled in 1982 that immigrant kids are entitled to attend U.S. public schools….

ISIS To All Christians: ‘You Will Soon See An Ocean Of Blood For All The Nation Of The Cross’

ISIS sent out a “Coming Soon” documentary titled “Warning: Message Signed In Blood Coming Soon To ‘Nation Of The Cross’”. It will be as ISIS promised, showing a wave of Christian blood which it has spilt. It is quite horrifying.

This morning I noticed some western speculation as to what ISIS had in mind for this sinister surprise which makes it obvious that from the beach wave mixed in blood as to another slaughter of Christians.

Some social media in the west speculated that this has something to do with Denmark, for example:

“Speculation as to ‘nation of the cross’ spans from Denmark (flag with cross) to ‘community of Christendom’. This announcement came after the Denmark attacks yesterday, so is not a reference to yesterday’s attacks.” (Weasel Zippers)

Westerners care more about Charlie Hebdo, a liberal who mocked Christ portraying the Virgin Mary giving birth to a pig. But all throughout the Middle East, the speculation is quite different, the beach and the waves shaped red, a reference to the blood was a clear message to the Copts in Egypt, a people who are rarely cared for and to Egypt it is about the slaughter of the 21 Christian Copts who were dragged to a beach front in Libya dressed in orange jump suits. [And beheaded.] The picture shows from ISIS magazine Dabiq, a group of Copts bowing on a beach, which can be linked to the image of the new promotional video issued by ISIS.

….We all know that Zechariah 14 is about rescuing the Jews and converting them to Him, but Isaiah 19 should shock some folks and get us to ask, who and why is Christ coming for in Egypt:

“And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of Hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.” (Isaiah 19:20)

Here we have the “Mighty One” is the Messiah who fights on the day of the Lord to fight the oppressors. Here, see for yourself your brothers and sisters in Egypt suffering from the oppressors and calling for Jesus to come down and save them:

And where do we see such faith like this? Where do we see multitudes of Christians taking to the streets when there are 90% Muslims and in the face of such a massive threat the Copt stands for Christ, yet here, we fear a handful of bickering Muslims….

THE GREATEST DANGER AMERICA FACES

What is the greatest danger America faces? The list of dangers faced by our beleaguered republic is long and varied. Amongst the most obvious are the over twenty terrorist training camps strategically ensconced throughout America. The funny thing is that the only reason the terrorist camps pose any danger is that the federal government refuses to go after them and shut them down. I truly wish that federal government officials, would recognize and follow constitutional guidelines to protect our nation from enemies, both foreign and domestic. If they did, perhaps we would not be facing the huge possibility of yet another major terrorist attack within our extremely porous borders.

To put it as plainly as I possibly can, it is without a doubt, that the federal government has gone rogue. Many elected officials in both the Senate and the House are along with president Obama, more loyal to the United Nations and Agenda 21 than the United States and the Constitution. Why else would a sitting president and his Department of Justice leader threaten to take action against the governor of Arizona for seeking to protect the citizenry from murderous illegal immigrants?

….Also, amongst the greatest dangers threatening our republic turned mob rule democracy, is the bull headed determination of President Obama to spend and tax America into oblivion. His proposed record breaking four trillion-plus dollar budget along with desired tax increases could permanently flat line our economy and chances for opportunities. But then again, that is the written goal, among others to bring America down to her knees and under the control of certain international elements.

Have you noticed how in a majority of cases where government intervention occurs, the quality of whatever the government has intruded upon either gradually or quickly deteriorates? Yet the cost goes way up? The medical industry is the most recent major example. Almost everywhere, whether the medical industry, housing, energy production, etc. the danger here is that eventually, if left unchecked, government intervention will kill off the incentive for superior private sector investment and involvement altogether. But of course that is the goal of the progressives. If you think I am exaggerating, just simply ask the increasing number of Americans who can no longer receive needed treatments for numerous chronic ailments. That is all courtesy to the government intervention of Obamacare….

For generations, government school educators have been indoctrinating students against everything that is good. They have been so masterful, so now for the first time ever, graduating students prefer communism over the blessings of free market economics. Next on the trilogy of danger to America is the government’s refusal to secure our borders so that illegal immigrants can be used as a voter base for the democrat party. Or even worse, the Muslim terrorists they are letting in can blow something up. Last but not least, is the very dangerous societal turning away from God, who was recognized by the Founding Fathers as the source of our national blessings and strength. If this unwise trend is not soon reversed, America could end up as Ronald Reagan predicted decades ago as simply, one nation under.

Out of control cops point guns at 6-year-old

When is too much too much?

Is it really necessary for cops to point loaded guns at a 6-year-old?

….Shockingly Ridgeland Police threatened a couple’s 6-year-old ‘special needs’ child with loaded guns during a search Friday after showing up in an unmarked car looking for Carneigio M. Gray, 23, who was wanted on a failure to appear charge from 2012.

“My son was telling the police officers to stop, to not to do that. Please don’t hurt his uncle and that’s when the guns were drawn on him and my mother was telling them hey please don’t point your gun at my grand-baby. Please don’t do that.”, Said the boy’s mother, Angela Thompson Roby….

Weinstein Called Out For Anti-Christian Remarks

Michael Weinstein, founder of the controversial Military Religious Freedom Foundation, was questioned about recent anti-Christian remarks he made.

At a House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Military Personnel on Wednesday, Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) confronted one witness with derogatory remarks he made about Christians, which the lawmaker said exemplifies the threat to religious liberty in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Forbes used his five minutes to ask Michael Weinstein, founder of the controversial Military Religious Freedom Foundation, about remarks he made about Christians.

“In a Washington Post article on July 16, 2006 they attributed a quote to you that said: ‘We’ve created this foundation to be a weapon. We going to lie down a withering field of fire and leave sucking chest wounds,” Forbes said. “Was that an accurate quote?”

Weinstein did not answer the yes or no question but instead tried to defend his stance.

“I want to make it very clear that we realize what we’re facing is a tsunami of fundamental Christian…” Weinstein said.

“Did you make that quote or not?” Forbes asked.

Weinstein went on saying, “We are facing a tsunami of fundamental Christian exceptionalism and supremacy…”

“Yes, of course I said those words. I’m proud of them,” Weinstein added.

Forbes then repeated another quote attributed to Weinstein.

“A second one on June 16, 2013, you said, ‘Today we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s Armed Forces.’ Did you make that quote?” Forbes asked.

“I did,” Weinstein said.

Forbes then told the panel of witnesses that anti-Christian remarks like Weinstein’s – not religious expression – represent “the definition of coercion.”

Man Shoots Down Drone, Lawyers Scratch Their Heads

By Kelsey D. Atherton – PopSci.com –

Shooting down a small drone is hard. But determining whether people should be allowed to do so may prove more difficult still. A man in New Jersey fired a shotgun at his neighbor’s drone, and as the quadcopter crashed to the ground, the incident raised new legal challenges about when and if it’s okay to shoot a robot.

Police arrested the New Jersey man, charging him with “Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose and Criminal Mischief”. In this case, courts might find that, by firing the shotgun at the drone, the man is guilty of destruction of property. The use of force is often only legally permissible to prevent a physical threat, and a wandering drone, like a trespassing cow, is inconvenient but not an imminent danger.

Courts might rule that a trespass by drone is unlike a trespass by a pet. Drones can carry cameras, so a drone flying into a backyard isn’t just trespassing, it’s a threat to privacy…

Gov’t Lists “Hot Spots” For Terrorist Attacks

From Before It’s News

With ISIS on the loose and our borders wide open I thought it would be a good idea to study the topic of terrorist hot spots in America. If terrorist were to strike the US which counties would be the most prone to attack? Rather shocking I discovered through a tipster, that such research does exist and low and behold 65 counties, of a total 3,143 counties, made it on the list.

Is your county a hot bed for terrorist activity? Find out…
