The title says it all. There really isn't anything more to add to this story except for the fact that this is a hilarious way to go about "regime change." This also serves as testimony to the fact that some with boots on the ground understanding of the brutality in North Korea don't think enough is being done.

We are at a crossroads with this; a crossroads that will define the direction of the country. If these indictments do not focus on the systemic corruption in the Federal government today, then a two-tier justice system will be cemented forever and the Republic is, for all practical purposes, lost. If they do focus on true corruption, the first volley in the effort to taking back the government from the oligarchs is upon us.

This predicament is one that feeds into the border security issue. With this realization it becomes wholly irresponsible to oppose any elevated vetting and advanced border protection measures. Should Democrats, liberals and Progressives continue their opposition to enhanced vetting and border security measures, the blood of the next 9/11 is on their hands.
The American people -- and the people of the free world -- dodged a bullet in the last General Election when Hillary Clinton lost. Would she have won it's clear we would be looking at an explosion of nuclear weapons capability across the Middle East.
Clinton, in only the way an American-hating globalist can, has somehow twisted the negation of the hideously inequitable Iran nuclear deal made under the Obama administration with United States credibility around the world.
"That is bad not just on the merits for this particular situation, but it sends a message across the globe that America's word is not good," said Clinton. "This particular president is, I think, upending the kind of trust and credibility of the United States' position and negotiation that is imperative to maintain."
So, the Obama-Clinton team negotiates a deal that literally facilitates Iran's continued development of nuclear weapons and that somehow validates our nation's "credibility" on the world stage. But the negation of that piss-poor agreement -- a negation that very much makes the world a safer place -- damages our national credibility? Seriously?
It is abundantly clear that the Progressive-Left, anchored by Alinsky-ites like Obama and Clinton, not only came very close to permanently destroying the ability of the United States to be a major player in defending freedom, but that they are -- regardless of being out of power to a certain extent -- willing to defend the endangerment of the world at their hand.
Why Hillary Clinton is still relevant is a quandary. She has proven herself to be a horrible leader, a self-serving politician, a corrupt individual, and pathetically sore loser. She is everything that is wrong with the modern "Selfish Age," and for the good of the country we need to put that age out to pasture.
Have you heard the name Linda Sarsour? If you have a grimace probably just came over your face. Sarsour is one of the most disingenuous political parasites of modern times. Now, this opportunistic fraud is diverting funds from the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Sarsour was one of the minor players in organizing the vagina-hat march against Donald Trump in the early days of his presidency. This was the march with Madonna saying she often thinks about blowing up the White House (interesting since the eight years before Trump saw the White House occupied by Barack Obama) and Ashley Judd spewing rhetoric that should have mandated her a trip to a psychiatrist. Sarsour glommed on to the event as is she had given birth to it. She did not.
Sarsour is vehemently anti-Israel and foaming-at-the-mouth pro-Palestinian. She is a proponent of advancing Sharia Law into the West. She injected Muslim activism into the Ferguson issue and rebuked then-President Obama who reluctantly called on the Muslim community to denounce those who executed the attacks in San Bernardino, California; attacks perpetrated by Islamofascists. She has, since her showboating at the vagina-hat march, attached her self, opportunistically, to the Black Lives Matter movement, the immigration issue, the Confederate statue issue, you name it, if it's a Progressive anti-American cause, this charlatan is there.
Now, Legal Insurrection reports that in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, this fraud is misdirecting people on social media who want to help the flood victims. In a tweet, Sansour directs potential donors to political action groups (PACs) with which she is affiliated. These are community organizing PACs dedicated to Progressive social justice initiatives. They have absolutely nothing to do with providing much needed financial aid to victims of Hurricane Harvey; people who need - in the immediate - food, clothing, water, emergency shelter, etc.
This is why the overwhelming majority of thinking Americans despise the Progressive-Left. They are an ideological gaggle of deceivers who prey on people's emotions even as they defraud those they have manipulated, both intellectually and monetarily.
Sarsour, a typical Progressive-Left activist, is beneath contempt for her dishonesty. Even in Allah's afterlife, this woman is going to burn.
North Korea's child tyrant is claiming that he has miniaturized a nuclear warhead to fit on top of his "balsa wood" ICBM missiles. President Trump has, necessarily, responded with his war face. And while many are talking about the possibility of a confrontation between the US and North Korea, there are options that would change the game.
Part of executing a potent and respected foreign policy is to not only be steadfast in your alliances, but to be unpredictable to you foes. In this instance, regarding North Korea, being unpredictable is the way to go.
Conventional thinking embraces the thought that the United States should leverage its relationship with China to quell the aspiration of Kim Jong-un. But short of a Chinese invasion of that despotic nation, there really is little the Chinese can do. Kim doesn't think twice about letting his people starve to death in deference to the elites and the military.
What President Trump should do is exercise a move from an outside the box thought process.
Why not enter into a strategic military alliance with Japan giving them what they have sought for years: military autonomy? Let Japan lead the way, figuratively and strategically, against North Korea. Japan has as much if not more to lose as the United States if North Korea lights the nuclear candle.
An aggressive Japan would strike a great deal of fear into the hearts of the entire Asian continent, with memories of their totalitarian conquest circa World War II still fresh in many minds.
A strategic military relationship with Japan leading the way would both strengthen our relationship with Japan and send a clear and potent message to North Korea, as well as China and Russia.
It seems that the smiling tyrant of the Iranian revolution, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is going to face some of his own style of punishment. It appears the leisure suit wearing Islamofascist is starring at sentences on seven convictions of misusing billions of dollars in government funds while in office.
While the penalties for these convictions are not immediately known, we are talking about the justice of the Iranian mullahs. That said, the punishment could be anything from a lengthy (maybe life) prison sentence in a location such as the notorious Evin prison, where political prisoners are many times literally tortured to death, or, more mercifully, death.
Interesting is how the Iranian darlings of the moment are so easily brought to corruption and then delivered to the status of criminal pariah. Once one of the most powerful despots in the world, now relegated to chains, incarceration and possibly death.
Thus is the Islamofascist culture. Do you still believe that culture is equal in stature with the West?
It can be argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should not have recused himself from the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 General Election. Meeting with a Russian ambassador in a social capacity as a sitting US Senator is not improper. That said, Mr. Sessions' foot-dragging on all things Clinton is eyebrow-raising.
While some would spin it that Sessions should refrain from going after the Clintons and the DNC in an effort to avoid an onslaught of Democrat and Progressive charges of political persecution, it is clear to even the deaf, dumb and blind that the Clintons and the DNC have done things worthy of investigation.
Chief among the acts that should be investigated are the many instances of foreign governments -- and entities acting on behalf of foreign government -- donating to The Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton's time as US Secretary of State. The "coincidences" of favorable determinations by the State Dept. that occurred in proximity to "donations" to The Clinton Foundation are more than worthy of investigation.
Almost as important -- and perhaps even more so -- is the issue of Hillary Clinton having housed, received and transmitted classified information on an unauthorized private email server. Since we now know that the DNC and Clinton Campaign email servers were hacked (via Wikileaks disclosures), we simply must assume that Clintons unsecured, unauthorized, private email server was also compromised. This is -- and always was -- a very big deal. That's why the country gasped in horror when James Comey let Clinton off the hook.
Another item worthy of investigation are the meetings between the Clinton Campaign and the embassy staff from Ukraine; meetings confirmed to have been about colluding to influence the 2016 General Election.
There are so many questionable actions that have been executed by the Clintons over the years one would have trouble tallying them up. So, many of us commiserate with President Trump on this issue. When, Mr. Sessions, will we see serious and honest -- non-political -- investigations into these most serious of questionable acts at the hands of the Clintons?
Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice will take the hot seat before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Tuesday to discuss the unmasking of US citizens in in intelligence gathering related to the 2016 election. If anyone thinks any damning evidence will come out of this they really should stop chewing gum when they walk.
While the questions will be relevant during her grilling (at least from Republicans -- Democrats will execute the obligatory interference and deflection routine), can anyone expect a serial liar to answer any of the questions truthfully?
Because everyone on the planet -- including Rice, herself -- knows that the answer to the above question is "no," why are we wasting taxpayer money on this hearing at all? Why not just let the Justice Department initiate an official investigation and acquire evidence in a chain that can be used in a prosecution should that be the logical next step?
This is the problem with politicians. In order to get "face time" with the media so that their constituents believe they actually do something, they have to have these useless "investigative" committees that showboat with witnesses that can only be categorized as hostile and partisan.
To better serve the people -- and so that they stop wasting taxpayer dollars -- how about they conduct cursory investigations using staff investigators and if they believe their are nefarious acts taking place the committee recommends/requests to the DoJ that a format criminal investigation be executed.
This streamlines the process and retards -- or at least reduces -- the never-ending flow of caustic partisan bullsh*t showboating that politicians have become so want to do.
To listen to Democrats and their mainstream media puppets explain it, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin met in the "cone of silence" to systemically corrupt and gerrymander the 2016 General Election to Trump's advantage. The narrative is bullsh*t, but that's what they would have you believe.
Why do I know it's BS? Because after months of investigations -- both governmental and not, as well as a full-blown effort by the media to uncover anything that could serve as evidence of illegal activity, well, as they would say in Godfellas, "they got nothin'."
This is why Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, had to very subtlety manipulate the very basis of the complaint Democrats have been making.
“I don't want to see us continue to lower the bar here and say the only question is whether this is illegal. This was unethical," Schiff said Tuesday. "It was, I think, a violation of the oaths of citizenship to willingly solicit, receive, encourage foreign intervention in our elections.”
Did you catch that? He doesn't want to "lower the bar" by making the issue exclusively about illegality. This is after Democrats, like Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, and the usual caustically partisan Progressives, have insisted that illegal collusion took place. They claim that Donald Trump committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" in his "collusion" to the point of warranting impeachment!
But suddenly, because no evidence could be unearthed to prove otherwise, this matter isn't about the subject of illegality. Now, as Schiff points out, it is about "ethics."
I didn't know that a violation of ethics was the criteria for impeachment or imprisonment. If "ethics" was the litmus test then Barack Obama should have been impeached ten-fold, and Hillary Clinton would have to be secured like Hannibal Lecter to keep her away from all things government.
This serves as a perfect example of one important thing. It shows how Progressives redefine things in order to support their narratives, no matter how far the stretch and no matter how beyond the lines of legitimacy it needs to go.
Democrats are going to try to ride the Russian collusion story into the mid-term elections. Schiff's overt shift in language proves this out. It's pathetic, but it's what politically partisan Democrats and Progressives do when..."they got nothin'."
