What is transpiring now in the House of Representatives in the setting of the House Intelligence Committee is truly astounding. The Pontificatorium that is now “examining” “Russian Active Interference with the 2016 presidential election” has raised irony to the power of ten. FBI Director James Comey cautioned the members of the committee that he would be unable to comment on the details of any ongoing investigations that may involve classified material. And yet he has no problem with overstepping his self-limited description as a law enforcement official by offering astute foreign policy opinions such as “Putin hated Hillary Clinton so much.” The Intelligence Committee proceedings have descended into political theater, shamelessly top billed by Democrat Adam Schiff in his opening remarks replete with innuendo, unsubstantiated conspiracy theories and “possibilities” of “coincidences” all designed to indict the Trump administration as a coconspirator with Putin’s Russia in defeating Hillary Clinton.

The point of bringing this article to light is not that Judge Napolitano was sanctioned (although that’s bad enough) by Fox News for stating fact, but that Fox News is the other side of the same coin. Along with CNN, MSNBC, NBC, BBC, etc… Fox News has the same mission of propaganda but panders to the right. It panders to the right, but over the years has made a slow movement of reining in right-wingers and slowly shifting them to the left. That’s the issue, and in the Napolitano incident, Faux News took away an information supplying source that gives the political right a foundation to stand on.
Fox News anchor Bret Baier likes to end his Special Report broadcast with the claim that Fox News is “fair, balanced and unafraid.” Well, Fox News seems not to be fair when it throws contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano under the bus for linking surveillance of Team Trump to Team Obama’s links with British intelligence.

Now would be a great time for the U.S. intelligence community (IC) to assess whether or not the two North Korean ‘weather satellites’ hanging over the American mainland aren’t nukes or EMP devices ready to drop on command.
North Korea is somewhat akin to a loudmouth who always makes threats, but is always downplayed and laughed at because people only see the weakling on the surface, yet one day might deliver a crippling blow with a hidden weapon. President Trump has so far shown that he is one to take every threat seriously.
NORTH Korea has pledged to launch a nuclear strike on the US if a “single bullet is fired” as US forces flood the Korean Peninsula.
Kim Jong-un’s rogue state issued the stunning warning as Washington and South Korea carry out war games in the region.
Pyongyang blames the rest of the world for rising nuclear tensions as the DPRK continues its quest for nuclear missiles capable of striking the US mainland. Continue reading
The military will deploy its own system before Seoul sets up the American one, Wang Hongguang says
China knew it might not be able to stop Seoul deploying a US anti-missile system and was prepared to counter with its own anti-radar equipment, a retired PLA general said on Monday.
The comments by Wang Hongguang came as a South Korean court’s decision to uphold the impeachment of Park Geun-hye, the country’s former president, fanned hopes Seoul might put plans for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence system on hold. Continue reading
The annual Foal Eagle military drills between the US and South Korea will include some heavy hitters this year — the Navy SEAL team that took out Osama bin Laden, Army Special Forces, and F-35s, South Korea’s Joon Gang Daily reports.
The SEALs, who will join the exercise for the first time, will simulate a decapitation attack, or a strike to remove North Korea’s leadership. Continue reading
Straight from the CCP mouthpiece, Global Times: A warning of a Chinese first nuclear strike against the United States of America.
They’re playing the victim card again after making many provocations, taking over the South China Sea and refusing to reign in their proxy against America, North Korea. They’re quite good at it, however, since people do believe they are the victim.
They’re using the THAAD deployment as an excuse and America is the scapegoat for their long wished-for ambitions of military superiority.
Some equipment for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system, including launch vehicles, has been delivered to South Korea for deployment. Beijing has also started to impose sanctions on Seoul. However, the US is the initiator and the major promoter for the THAAD installation. How China should react to US strategic provocations is more crucial.
Economic sanctions against the US are unlikely. THAAD producer Lockheed Martin is the world’s most powerful weapons manufacturers, and is beyond China’s grasp. Given the US’ economic scale, economic sanctions against it will be strategically unfavorable to China. Continue reading
THAAD deployed to South Korea
China on Tuesday reacted harshly to the U.S. military’s deployment of an advanced missile defense system to South Korea—one day after North Korea fired a salvo of 600-mile range missiles toward Japan.
The first battery of the Army’s Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, a long-range mobile missile defense system, arrived in South Korea on Tuesday for deployment to a location in the southeastern part of the country. Continue reading
China has broken its silence and has advised North Korea to suspend its nuclear missile program to avoid calamity with the US
(WASHINGTON, DC) Beijing has called on North Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities to avoid a “head-on collision” with the US and South Korea. In exchange, Washington and Seoul should halt drills, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said. Continue reading
VX nerve agent, a chemical on a U.N. list of weapons of mass destruction, was used to kill the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in last week’s murder in a busy Kuala Lumpur airport, Malaysian police said on Friday. The two women who assaulted him wiped the deadly chemical on his face as he prepared to board a plan for the Chinese territory of Macau. Continue reading
Anti-Trump demonstrations painted by the major media as “spontaneous” are, in fact, “100 percent contrived, phony exhibitions of street theater” orchestrated in advance by pro-communist organizations, a report said.
One such group is the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism).
Established in 2001 by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, ANSWER is staffed in large part by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party, according to Frontpage Mag. Continue reading

The Sudden German Nuke Flirtation (The Carnigie Endowment Foundation for International Peace)
For years talking about nuclear weapons was taboo in Germany. Today it’s necessary.
Germany doesn’t want America’s old nuclear weapons—it wants to build its own. In 2009, Germany’s ruling coalition stated one of its goals was to remove American-owned nuclear weapons from German soil. Now the debate has moved on, and some want Germany to build its own nukes.
While the public is skeptical, influential news outlets on both sides of the political spectrum have published editorials promoting a rethinking of Germany’s nuclear policy.
In November 2016, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, a conservative-leaning newspaper with Germany’s largest foreign circulation, published an opinion piece titled “The Utterly Unimaginable.” In it, the newspaper’s co-editor Berthold Kohler said the “simple ‘same as before’” route couldn’t continue. The retreat of the United States and the advance of Russia and China meant the Continent was changing: Germany could no longer rely on building “peace without weapons.” Continue reading
President Donald Trump will “rebuild” America’s vast military, boost its anti-missile capabilities and prioritize defeating the Islamic State group, according to the first policy statements published on the White House website Friday.
Published moments after Trump was inaugurated president, the statements say he will end limits on Pentagon spending agreed by Congress and the Obama administration, and will soon release a new budget proposal outlining his vision for the military. Continue reading
TENSIONS of global conflict have escalated after Russia and China agreed to team up to blast Trump’s lethal missile system in South Korea if he launches an attack, according to reports.
According to the Chinese state-controlled news agency Xinhua, Chinese and Russian officials agreed to safeguard their security interests by preparing a series of “countermeasures” against the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in South Korea which was originally launched to counter Kim Jong-un’s growing nuclear arsenal.
After the security meeting between Chinese and Russian officials in China, Xinhua published a statement which said the countermeasures will be prepared to achieve “strategic balance in the region.” Continue reading
Washington Free Beacon senior editor Bill Gertz said that the United States is “extremely vulnerable” to cyber attacks during a radio interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday evening. Gertz appeared on Hannity’s radio show to discuss his newly released book, iWar: War and Peace in the Information Age.
To begin the interview, Hannity asked Gertz what he thought of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s assertion that he did not receive hacked emails of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign from Russian sources.
“We’re going to have to wait to see what the [Obama] administration’s investigation of the Russian influence operation is,” Gertz responded. Continue reading
China may continue to ratchet up its retaliation against South Korea over Seoul’s decision to allow the deployment of a U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery here, analysts said Monday.
In what was likely a retaliatory maneuver last week, Beijing abruptly banned South Korean airlines from operating chartered flights between the two countries beginning this month. Chinese airlines also withdrew their plan to run chartered flights to Korea. Continue reading
