NoKo says strike on US is 'inevitable' as we fly bombers off coast

North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, (aka 'Young Ho') under threat of being anti aircraft-gunned by the rogue nation's leader, called U.S. President Trump "a mentally deranged person full of megalomania." Ironically, Ho has no background in psychology, other than an evening adult ed class, so it's quite possible that his diagnosis of President Trump is wrong, especially given the fact that he never interviewed him diagnostically or otherwise.

As his daughter, Heidi, sat in the audience, Ho promised that  a strike on the U.S. mainland was "inevitable" in the speech he made at the UN General Assembly.

The Ho address began as the Pentagon announced that it had flown some badass bombers and fighter jet escorts to the farthest point north of the Korean DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), going farther than any such U.S. aircraft this century.

Defense Department spokesman, Dana White, said in a statement "This mission is a demonstration of U.S. resolve and a clear message that the president has many military options to defeat any threat."

White added, "North Korea's weapons program is a grave threat to the Asia-Pacific region and the entire international community. We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the U.S. homeland and our allies."

According to the Pentagon, B-1B bombers from Guam, and F-15C Eagle fighter escorts from Okinawa, Japan, flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday.

Unlike other "show of force" missions, our birds were not accompanied by South Korean or Japanese planes. We simply wanted to show North Korea just how big our gonads are.

"While conducted unilaterally, this mission was coordinated with regional allies--namely the Republic of Korea [aka South Korea] and Japan--and was a strong testament to our ironclad alliance," U.S. Pacific Command spokesman Cmdr. Dave Benham told Fox News.

On Friday, Trump went on the rhetorical offensive against Adipose Kim.

"Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before," Trump tweeted. He had previously announced increased economic sanctions against NoKo on Thursday. The sanctions will target any countries that do business with North Korea, but this is really aimed at China, who does almost 90 percent of the North's trade.

Due to the fact that President Trump spoke about North Korea, the liberal mainstream media and Democrats tried to put words in his mouth, accusing him of threatening NoKo preemptively.

Trump's words:
"North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile development is a grave threat to peace and security in our world and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal, rogue regime."
Kim (aka 'Rocket Man') went ballistic hours later saying Trump was "deranged."

It's like the pot calling the kettle 'stoned'.

On a positive note, it looks like Trump has gotten China and Russia on board with the sanction program and it's possible that China could severely impede NoKo's ability to fund its missile and nuclear program.

And while fat Kim is saying Trump would "pay dearly" for threatening to "totally destroy" his hell-hole of a country if the U.S. had to defend ourselves or our allies against a North Korea attack, hopefully the sanctions will put an end to the bluster.

Aides warn Trump to go light vs. 'Rocket Man'

Top aides to President Trump have been warning him over and over not to continue with his personal attacks against North Korean leader 'Fat Face' Kim Jong Un. They specifically told him to cool his jets before the UN speech this week, but Trump's jets were hotter than the core of an H-bomb.

The aides told him that insulting Kim in such a global venue could escalate tensions and end any chance for negotiations to diffuse the nuclear crisis.

Evidently, Trump pretended to go along with this good advice but when it came to the UN speech, he derisively described Kim as "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission" and he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea--which was not in the speech draft but were ad libbed by Trump.

Even Trump's anti-Israel  national security adviser H.R. McMaster argued for several months against attacking Kim Jong Un on a personal level warning it could backfire.

It would be like "War of the World's Egos."

However, asking Trump to play nice and not belittle his enemies and rivals with crude nicknames was too hard to suppress. He felt compelled to go after the chubby chump.

Now some advisors worry that Trump's escalating war of words has pushed the standoff with North Korea into a new and dangerous phase that will negate the hard work of sanctions on their economy.

But at least Trump feels satisfied he 'out punked' Kim in spite of the North Korean leader's CIA psychological profile that says he has a massive ego and reacts harshly and often lethally to insults and perceived slights.

Of course, Kim took Trump's insults personally and was especially pissed that Trump dissed him in front of 200 world leaders and diplomats at the UN.

The insulting went back and forth:
Trump: Hey Kim, if you can't laugh at yourself, I'd be glad to do it for you.
Kim: If I gave you a penny for your thoughts, I'd get change.
Trump: Oh yeah? The last time I saw a face like yours, I fed it a banana.
Kim: Donald Trump, I not offended by what you say, you dotard. I'm just happy you're now stringing words into sentences.
Trump: If I throw a stick, will you go away?
And so on.

This has got to stop before both leaders believe they cannot 'lose face' and respond with fire and fury. In fact, this kind of clashing can undermine Trump's other efforts at the General Assembly meetings.

John Park, a specialist on Northeast Asia at Harvard's Kennedy School, said the back and forth insults have created a "new reality" and probably shut off any chance of starting new talks to curb NoKo's nuclear arms program.

"If the belief centers around sanctions being the last hope to averting war and getting North Korea back to the negotiating table, it's too late," Park said.

Former President Obama warmed Trump before his inauguration that North Korea would be his most pressing international concern. But Trump realizing Obama was the idiot who told Romney that Russia was no big deal, probably didn't give the socialist much credence, but he was 'amazed' how close Kim was to developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could deliver a nuclear warhead to U.S. soil.

However, when he first entered the White House, Trump rarely derided Kim and in May, he said he'd be "honored" to meet Kim under the right circumstances.

He also said he'd built a wall and Mexico will pay for it.

He also said he'd end DACA.

McCain's integrity circles the bowl

BFFs for life
Senator John McCain told the media that he cannot support the Graham-Cassidy proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare--a main issue he ran on for his reelection to the Senate.

The reason for McCain's turnaround on his promise is simple: he's a lying RINO in bed with the Democrats and hates President Trump to the point where his hatred takes precedence over his integrity.

CNBC reported:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Friday said he "cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham Cassidy proposal.
McCain is one of four Republican senators who have been undecided on the GOP healthcare overhaul, and his opposition dealt the bill's chances a significant blow.
Also on Friday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said she is leaning toward voting NO on Graham Cassidy. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has already expressed his opposition to the bill, which he said didn't fully repeal the Affordable Care Act.
If all three of these votes are nay votes, the bill would not pass. Republicans have until Sept. 30 to pass a health care bill with only 50 votes. After that, they will need 60 votes, a nearly impossible threshold to meet. 
So it's obvious that hating a Trump success, at least in McCain's case, outweighs a campaign promise. 

And they wonder why the approval rate of congress is in the toilet.

Israeli warplanes hit Hezbollah weapons depot hard

Israeli warplanes struck a Hezbollah weapons cache outside Damascus early Friday morning, reported The Times of Israel.

Three sorties were carried out near Damascus International Airport, a stronghold of Iranian-backed terrorist organization.

"Israeli warplanes targeted with rocket fire a weapons depot belonging to Hezbollah near the airport," said the director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman. 

Images of the alleged Israeli strike are now on social media for your freudenschade enjoyment. Smoke can be seen billowing in an area near the airport. 

Israel, Syria or Hezbollah neither confirm nor denies any of the reports.

Little Israel has for years carried out airstrikes in Syrian territories to destroy or at least contain the military infrastructure of its many enemies, including Russian-built anti-aircraft missiles and Iranian-made missiles. It also enjoys and occasional explosion at Hezbollah outposts and outhouses.

Two weeks ago, an Israeli air raid on a Syrian regime depot hit a motherlode of chemical weapons that were being transferred to Hezbollah.

Just this week, a Hezbollah drone was shot down by an Israeli Air Force Patriot missile, after it entered the demilitarized zone on the Israeli-Syria border.

Although this latest strike wasn't confirmed by military officials or Israeli civilians, Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz, unable to keep a secret, kind of hinted that Israel was behind the attack.

With a twinkle in Katz's eye, he told Army Radio that he could "confirm that the incident in Syria completely conforms to Israel's policy" of preventing Iran from smuggling weapons to Hezbollah's fightin' scumquats.

Hamassholes prosecute journalist for her honesty

A Palestinian journalist was prosecuted Monday by Hamas after she exposed corruption in the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian affairs correspondent Khaled Abu Toameh.

In June of last year, Hajer Harb reported that Hamas and the PA (Palestinian Authority, not Parents Association) extorted Palestinians who sought medical care in Israel, Europe and other countries in the Arab World.

The Hamassholes and PA, along with doctors who went along with the extortion, demanded bribes from Palestinian patients seeking permits for better medical treatment because the camel urine tasted horrible and wasn't curing anything--Mohammad was wrong about that, like he was wrong about the wings of flies. (He said one wing of a fly causes disease and the other wing cures it. Mohammad was clearly no physician.)

Anyway, Harb's report charged that those who didn't pay the bribes were "left to die in understaffed and under-equipped Palestinian hospitals.

Which calls to mind the notion that Israeli hospitals treat Muslim Palestinians, even from the other side of the wall. But Palestinian Muslims don't treat Israeli Jews and believe it's their religious duty to kill them wherever they find them.

So who are the barbarians?

The PA and Hamasshole leaders were terribly pissed with the investigative report exposing what some Palestinians called the "mafia of destruction," and those in the Italian mafia are pissed at having their name ripped off.

After Harb's piece was published, an official Hamasshole called her for an interrogation whereby she refused to reveal her sources without a court order.

Harb recalled:
The prosecution told me that I was facing the following charges: impersonation of another person (they claim I did not reveal my real identity during the investigative report); slandering the Ministry of Health, publishing inaccurate and incorrect information and working with 'foreign parties' (by preparing a report for a London-based television station under the pretext that the media organization is not registered with the Press Office in the Gaza Strip).
Harb herself required a permit to seek medical treatment for cancer in Jordan, but human rights groups intervened on her behalf and she didn't need to bribe anyone for a permit, said Toameh.

While abroad, she was sentenced by a Hamas "court" to six months in prison and fined 1,000 shekels ($250). If she returns to Gaza, she will be arrested and incarcerated.

Some critics have condemned Hamassholes for trying to silence a journalist, but Antifa isn't one of them.

The Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms (MADA) denounced Harb's verdict and called it a "very serious precedent against media freedoms." They wrote: "MADA, wishing a speedy recovery for our colleague [Harb], strongly condemns this decision, which lacks fair trial procedures."

Gee, big surprise--a Palestinian decision that's unfair.

Palestinian political analyst Jihad Harb (no relation) said the verdict was an effort to both silence journalists and protect the corrupt practices of Hamas government in Gaza. He noted that Hamas targets those who expose corruption, not those involved in perpetrating it.

Abu Toameh wrote: 
"The court verdict passed on Hajer Harb, and the ongoing punitive measures against Palestinian journalists in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, serve as yet another reminder that Hamas and the Palestinian Authority have no respect for freedom of expression and media freedoms. Hamas and the PA may be at war with each other, but they both agree that the media is an enemy that needs to be defeated, to prevent the world from learning about corruption and repression."
Human Rights Watch (HRW), a nonprofit organization, condemned the treatment of journalists by Hamas and the PA. They said their tactics led to a "chilling effect" on freedom of expression in the Palestinian territories.

"Both Palestinian governments, operating independently, have apparently arrived at similar methods of harassment, intimidation and physical abuse of anyone who dares criticize them," said Sari Bashi, HRW's Israel/Palestinian director.

So next time you hear anti-Zionist, Palestinian news, take it with a grain of Kosher salt.

A raving madwoman calls Dr. Carson an 'educated fool'

Repulsive Maxine Waters (Dummy--Calif.) calling Dr. Ben Carson a "fool" is like Blind Lemon Jefferson telling Sebastian Vettel that he's a bad driver. But that's exactly what "Aunty Maxine" did, she called Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Dr. Ben Carson an "educated fool."

The low-class insult came during a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation gathering, a place where black Democrats pretend if you are black and not a Democrat, then you're not really black. On the other hand, if you're a white Democrat and identify as black, a là Rachel Dolezal, then you're okay.

"Look at Ben Carson. My God. My grandmother would call him an educated fool," Waters said invoking her dead retarded grandmother, Doh.

"Here's a man who has a reputation of being a highly competent surgeon, but when he talks about poor people, he says they're the cause of their poverty. He doesn't understand why you didn't do what he did and why you didn't make it like he made it. And he doesn't know the difference between slavery and immigration," the former 'Miss Empty Dumpty" said.

Dr. Carson is set to testify before the House Committee on Financial Services, which, incredibly, Waters chairs.

I say 'incredibly' because Waters' reputation regarding finances is extremely sordid  as the Washington Examiner article shows.

She has no business even being on that committee, much less chairing it.

"He's coming before my committee," she said. "If you think I took [Steve] Mnuchin on, you watch what I'm going to do to Ben Carson."

Last July, Waters said that Carson "doesn't care about people in public housing," warning she would "take his ass apart" when he testified before the committee. Clearly, she wasn't referring to proctological surgery at the committee.

She's a disgusting person and is in no position to judge others.

Trump tough tweets after Kim threatens hydrogen bomb test

North Korea this time is threatening to detonate a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean, potentially killing innumerable fishes (which is the proper use of the plural for 'fish' of more than one species) and President Trump tweeted in kind. 

Trump said that Kim would be "tested like never before," and the rogue regime's leader said, "Trump is a dotard." So Trump said, "Oh yeah? Kim is a retard."

Then Kim said Trump is "deranged."

And so on.

In a speech at the United Nations General Assembly this week, Trump warned NoKo that the U.S. would "totally destroy" North Korea if Pyongyang continued its provocative actions. This caused the leftist mainstream media to have a conniption fit saying that Trump wants to kill millions of North Koreans and perpetrate a war crime.

He basically said the same thing former President Obama said about the rogue state, that if North Korea provoked us, we would respond. But Obama is allowed to say it and Trump isn't.

Then North Korea went even further revealing that Pyongyang could conduct the H-bomb test, and tweeted about "The Russian hoax."

Be it far from Trump to let an insult go unanswered; he tweeted back:
"Kim Jong Un of North Korea, [are there any others?] who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!"
Ah, the signature exclamation point!

The Yonhap news agency of South Korea reported Thursday on the H-bomb threat from North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho (his friends call him 'Ri the Young Ho') said the possibility of new nuclear testing is a response to Trump's U.N. speech filled with tremendous bluster and very, very provocative language that may have had an incredible impact of global proportions on corpulent Kim.

"This could probably mean the strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean. Regarding which measures to take, I don't really know since it is what Kim Jong Un does," Ri said cryptically in Korean.

If the test takes place, it would be considered a major provocation by the U.S., South Korea and Japan. Ri is scheduled to address the UNGA on Saturday--a day later than originally scheduled.

Ri's comments came after Kim lashed out at Trump, calling the TV star and U.S. President "deranged" and vowed that Trump [as opposed to the U.S.] would "pay dearly" for his threat to destroy North Korea.

Cheers went up all over CNN and MSNBC.

Kim must have been very upset with Trump. After Trump's U.N. speech, Kim said our president was "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country."

It's obvious Kim has no idea what democracy is--nobody holds a 'supreme command' of the United States, although Obama tried.

'The Kimster' also said Trump is "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire."

Kim calling Trump a "gangster" is like Antifa calling itself 'Anti-fascist.'

Some analysts and Jimmy Kimmel believe Kim's statement is a clear indication that the North plans to ramp up its already fast-paced weapons testing. These weapons include missiles designed to target U.S. forces in Asia and the U.S. mainland.

Trump has made fun of Kim, calling him "rocket man" on a "suicide mission" and added that if "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea."

Kim said Trump's statements "have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last."

The chubby cherub said he was "thinking hard" about his response and that Trump "will face results beyond his expectations."

Yes, if it comes to war and he destroys North Korea, Trump will have a pang of guilt the likes of which he may have never before experienced. But Kim will be toast with lots of butter.

Military analyst at Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies Kim Dong-yub said he believes Kim's statement shows that NoKo would respond to Trump with its most aggressive missile test thus far. It might include firing a Hwasong-14 ICBM over Japan to a range of about 4,349 miles to show its ability to reach Hawaii or Alaska.

Rep. Maxine Waters (Duh-Calif.) said that this would have never come to this point if President Trump would just resign "and get his ugly face outta here."

Samantha Power uses her power to unmask hundreds of Trumpers

Okay, here's what we know so far: Samantha Power is not a man nor does she "identify" as a man; she's a woman and is a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. 

She also is known to have 'unmasked' over 260 Americans last year--about one a working day--and even sought information in the days leading to President Trump's inauguration.

Two anonymous sources and my source who goes by the moniker Vinny Boombots, revealed this startling number and it leaves people scratching their heads as to what a UN ambassador needs with such information--unless she's also an undercover CIA operative [not of the "honey pot" kind] in addition to being an ambassador.

Power is to appear next month on Capitol Hill as she and other questionable leftists are to be scrutinized for their role in seeking the identities of Trump associates in intelligence reports. However, the interest in Power's actions is very high due to an apparent absence of a "need to know" status and the fact that she's probably a Commie sympathizer like her husband.

In a letter written July 27th to the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said the committee discovered "that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration."

The "official" in question is widely believed to be 'Sam' Power. 

At a public congressional hearing this year, Trey Gowdy (R-SC) asked former CIA director and Hajj visitor John Brennan about unmasking, without mentioning Power by name or reputation.

Gowdy: Do you recall any U.S. ambassadors asking that names be unmasked?

Brennan: I don't know. Maybe it's ringing a vague bell but I'm not--I could not answer with any confidence.

Gowdy: On either January 19 or up till noon on January 20, did you make any unmasking requests?

Brennan: I do not believe I did.

Gowdy: So you did not make any requests on the last day that you were employed?

Brennan: No, I was not in the agency on the last day I was employed.

But realizing there might be a 'sign-in log' or video evidence of his having been there, he corrected the record, confirming he was at CIA headquarters on January 20.

Brennan: I went there to collect some final personal materials as well as to pay my last respects to a memorial wall. But I was there for a brief period of time and just to take care of some final--final things that were important to me.

Power's spokesperson had no comment on the number or timing of her requests. Her lawyer David Pressman stated previously that "While serving as our Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Power was also a member of the National Security Council responsible for advising the President on the full-range of threats confronting the United States. Any insinuation that Ambassador Power was involved in leaking classified information is absolutely false."

Yeah, sure. That's what they all say and he even gets paid to say it.

And what the hell is Power doing on the National Security Council concurrent to her ambassador position.

The sad truth is, however, nobody at the top is going to prison. Nobody. Not Hillary; not Power; not Rice; not Clapper. It's the way the system works for the elite, for those who make the laws they break, or the policies that don't actually effect them, like Obamacare.

What you see in the media is fluff.
