NORTH KOREA SAYS IT TESTED A NEW WEAPON BUT WON’T SAY WHAT IT WAS

North Korea is flexing its muscles. On Thursday, the nation announced that it had test-launched a new “tactical guided weapon” — but kept the details vague.

The weapon is unlikely to be a long-range ballistic missile that could jeopardize peace talks, according to the Associated Press. Rather, given the fact that the announcement came with new demands for ongoing negotiations with the U.S., the tests were likely intended as a display of military strength.

Guessing Game
South Korean experts suspect that the new weapon was some sort of cruise missile, per the AP‘s attempt to learn more. Had the weapon been a longer-range missile that could pose a threat to the U.S. or other nations, then North Korea may have put at risk its ongoing effort to lift sanctions that other countries have imposed on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What will be key and critical here, is how President Trump understands what has been done, and where this may be going, in terms of denuclearization dialogue with Kim Jun Ung.

But there is one thing on which he and I most likely agree, and appreciate, and that is how "Wreck-it Mike Pompeo" is behaving right now.'

This is the result you get when you appoint a Dominonist as your Secretary of State.

These folks have a core belief that the more wars countries create, the sooner Jesus will make his Second Coming.

Rapture Christians Plan to Trigger an Apocalypse

The article goes on to state:

"A new ideology in the White House".

In the Trump White House, a weekly bible study group calls its brand of faith “historical evangelicalism.” Biblical scholars say the group shares the “end of times” message of “Rapture” theologians in its statement of faith and founder Ralph Drollinger’s own published lessons.

The bible study group is run by Capitol Ministries, an organization with the stated mission “to teach God’s Word and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with state legislators, judges, and constitutional officers.” Capitol Ministries supporters include ten members of Trump’s cabinet, including in addition to Pompeo, labor secretary Alex Acosta and housing secretary Ben Carson according to the Capitol Ministries website. Drollinger, a UCLA basketball player-turned politician-turned-preacher, has also been holding weekly bible study groups with dozens of Congress members since 2010."

Folks, I do not know how you feel about having a Secretary of State, whose religious eshatology commends him to "grease the skids" for the worst global catastrophe ever, because it will be the event which will foreshadow the 2nd coming of Christ, but color me very nervous about this.

In looking at Pompeo's foreign policy, one can see how, in his mind, creating wars against Biblical enemies, and others, like Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Yemen, makes perfect sense to him; after all, it's hastening the second coming of Jesus, right?!?

And I have to wonder; what will happen to these Dominionists, if the wars destroy all life on earth, but there is no second coming of Jesus?!?

America gets its ‘ass handed to it’ in WW3 simulations

The US may not stand a chance against Russia and China should World War III break out, advanced warfare analysts have warned.

Nonprofit global policy think tank RAND has been performing simulated war scenarios, often sponsored by the Pentagon, to test how American forces would fare against the world’s other leading military superpowers.

Last week, RAND analysts revealed that in scenario after scenario, the US has suffered severe losses despite spending nearly $1trillion annually on the military, exceeding the spending of any other country by more than double.

‘In our games, when we fight Russia and China, “blue” gets its ass handed to it,’ researcher David Ochmanek explained at the Center for a New American Security on Thursday, Breaking Defense first reported. American forces are generally color-coded in blue in the simulations.

These are the five areas where the Air Force wants to see an explosion of technology

The Air Force has a new science and technology strategy, and it’s built around the idea that the service needs to generate leap-ahead capabilities like the 1950s-era Century Series that spawned six new fighter jets in five years.

To do that, the service wants to restructure about 20 percent of its S&T efforts into “vanguard programs” that will tie together different developmental efforts across the Air Force’s research institutions and experiment with them to see whether it shows promise.

“If you’re playing hockey, you shouldn’t be shooting where the goalie is. You should be shooting where the goalie isn’t,” Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said Wednesday. “So the idea with part of this strategy is to assess where our adversaries can’t easily go and get there first and fastest. That’s a winning strategy.”

Megalith tombs reveal secrets of European stone age

An international research team have discovered kin relationships among stone-age individuals buried in megalithic tombs in Ireland and Sweden, according to a recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America scientific journal.

The kin relations can be traced for more than 10 generations and suggest that megaliths were graves for kindred groups in stone age north-western Europe.

According to the paper, agriculture spread through migrants from the Fertile Crescent into Europe around 9,000 BCE, reaching north-western Europe by 4,000 BC. Starting around 4,500 BC, a new phenomenon of constructing megalithic monuments, particularly for funerary practices, emerged along the Atlantic façade.

These constructions have been enigmatic to the scientific community and the origin and social structure of the groups that erected them has remained largely unknown.

WAPO Editorial column admits Fox News was right all along, compares the anti Trump fake news bias in media is worthy of investigation.

Throughout most of southern Ohio, residents who watch cable news are predominantly glued to one channel: Fox News.

People there don’t watch Fox News to know what to think; they already know what they think, and they avoid news channels that insult their intelligence and core beliefs. Yes, Fox News is an echo chamber for the right, but no more than CNN and MSNBC are for the left, as far as conservatives are concerned. To be fair, when a Democrat is in the White House, the networks switch places, with Fox News criticizing every move, and MSNBC and CNN defending the Oval Office fortress.

German Nazi camp guard, 92, charged as accessory to thousands of murders

German prosecutors have charged a 92-year-old former concentration camp guard with being an accessory to murder, in what will be one of the last ever cases against Nazi-era war crimes.

Hamburg prosecutors accused the man, identified only as Bruno D., of aiding and abetting 5,230 cases of murder during the almost nine months he spent on duty at a concentration camp watch-tower at the end of World War Two.

According to Die Welt newspaper, which first reported the charges, the man admitted to prosecutors during a voluntary interrogation last year that he had seen people being taken to gas chambers to be murdered.

NXIVM SEX CULT’S ALLEGED ILLEGAL POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS REPORTEDLY WENT TO HILLARY CLINTON

The NXIVM sex cult is facing allegations that it illegally bundled campaign donations to gain political favor with an unnamed US presidential election candidate and reports suggest that the politician is Hillary Clinton.
United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Richard Donoghue asked a federal judge to introduce evidence showing that the defendants in the sex cult case had an “illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign.”

The court documents claim that witness testimony and documentary evidence will show that at least 14 NXIVM members, including five defendants, made the maximum campaign donation to a candidate, with the “understanding that they would be reimbursed by [Claire] Bronfman or Nancy Salzman,” who were involved in the cult. Salzman is the co-founder along with Keith Raniere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Grab the popcorn, folks; if this case ever gets to trial, this is going to, potentially, have a "domino effect" on both the Clintons, and the Democratic party as well.

SEARS SUES LAMPERT, CLAIMING HE LOOTED COMPANY AND DROVE IT INTO BANKRUPTCY

Sears Holdings Corp sued longtime Chairman Eddie Lampert, his hedge fund ESL Investments, and former directors including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, accusing them of allowing the retailer to be looted of billions of dollars before its October 2018 bankruptcy.

The lawsuit, made public on Thursday, was filed by the restructuring team winding down what remains of the pre-bankruptcy Sears following Lampert’s $5.2 billion purchase in February of most of its assets.

Sears accused Lampert of ordering the creation of bogus financial plans showing the retailer would turn itself around even as it racked up huge losses, enabling the transfer of five major assets including Land’s End and Sears Hometown Outlet for his benefit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not going to go away"; so I would suggest that he "lawyer up", and fast, because what may be brought up during the Discovery portion of the trial, may be significantly damning to both Lampert personally, and to his professional reputation.

The participants at the Forum of Russian-Arab Cooperation agreed to continue developing efforts to contribute to the normalization in Libya, declared the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Sergey Lavrov, at the closing of negotiations held with the Secretary General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

“We have agreed to continue working on the normalization of Libya,” said Lavrov.

The Russian foreign minister said that those gathered expressed their support for the efforts of the UN special representative, Ghassan Salame, on the implementation of the Road Map, prepared by him, to contribute to the normalization in Libya.

“The common task of the interested parties is to help the Libyans overcome the existing discord and reach agreements that lead to national reconciliation,” said Lavrov.

Julian Assange and the Sins of the World

There’s only been one person – so far – who suffered for the sins of the world and either saved us a lot of trouble or else caused us a lot of unnecessary grief. All I know is that a lot of people are hoping for His return – and for a better outcome.

As for myself, I fully expect a repeat of the previous scenario: the message, the betrayal, the persecution, and a torturous death.

They isolated Julian in the days before they hauled him out for the public display of his martyrdom. No crucifix this time. No crown of thorns. Just a penumbra of the deepest silence, which grips the very air: yet still he remains unbowed, his head held high.

New York Times Reportedly Mistakes Cologne Cathedral With Notre Dame

The mix-up was reportedly spotted by many keen-eyed viewers, with one of them joking about how "for us Americans every cathedral looks the same".

As news of the terrible tragedy which befell the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris spread across the world, The New York Times newspaper apparently ended up making a blunder related to the building’s appearance, according to German radio station Deutschlandfunk.

According to the media outlet, the opening sequence of a video released by the newspaper clearly shows the Cologne Cathedral instead of the Notre-Dame de Paris, with many keen-eyed viewers – especially residents of Cologne – quickly noticing the gaffe, with one of them jokingly remarking that "for us Americans every cathedral looks the same".

Ocasio-Cortez Lists Tax Cuts and the Census as Reasons to Impeach Trump

The phrase ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ must be too many syllables for her to understand.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked during an interview on Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast this past weekend if she supports impeaching President Trump.

As with most thoughts, the Democrat socialist struggled to convey any rational reasons for supporting such a bold and significant move.

“I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this president,” she claimed. “I support impeaching this president.”

So many things …

That’s when the interviewers asked her to cite three specific ‘things.’

Electrical short-circuit is believed to have started Notre Dame blaze, investigators believe

Investigators believe an 'electrical short circuit' was responsible for starting the blaze which devastated Notre Dame cathedral this week.

A French judicial police official said investigators brought in to work out the cause of the inferno made the claims - despite them not having been given access to the church yet for safety reasons.

The official, who spoke anonymously about the ongoing investigation, said the monument is still being consolidated with wooden planks to support some fragile parts of the walls.

Only after it is fully made safe will investigators will be allowed a closer look in order to accurately determine the cause of the fire.

Arsenic in Some Bottled Water Brands at Unsafe Levels, Consumer Reports Says

"It naturally flows out of the ground," chief operating officer A.C. Gallo said about the company’s spring in Council, Idaho, according to a published transcript on its website. "We built, actually, a spring house over it so we can let the water go down to the bottling plant. It’s amazingly pristine water."

What would happen if you got sucked into a black hole?

IMAGINE you are floating along in space. It is quiet and cold, serene but slightly terrifying. Suddenly, you feel a tug, faint at first, but getting ever stronger as it pulls you towards an empty region of the sky. Before you know it, you have entered a black hole. “That’s when the universe starts to go bizarre on you,” says Priyamvada Natarajan at Yale University.

With the publication of the first ever picture of a black hole this week, any residual doubt that these monsters of space-time exist is banished. But as to what happens inside one – well, there physicists are still mightily in dispute. So what are your possible fates, should you ever be so unlucky as to have a close encounter of the black hole kind?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You would be shredded by tidal forces.

A nail in the coffin of the Russian hacking narrative will be coming from none other than the ones who leaked the DNC info, WikiLeaks and Julian Assange

This week, in a stunning turn of events, U.S. congressman Dana Rohrabacher became the first congressman to meet with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

During the private three-hour meeting Assange told Rohrabacher that he will prove that leaked DNC documents, published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential election, did not come from Russia. Then on Thursday, Rohrabacher made a promise to pardon him.

On Thursday, Rohrabacher gave an interview with the Daily Caller in which he noted that Assange couldn’t come to Washington given his current status as a wanted criminal. So, he brought up the notion of pardoning the political prisoner.

Rohrabacher told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview Thursday that Assange is hoping to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he is currently in asylum, and that during the meeting they explored "what might be necessary to get him out."

A new air-breathing rocket engine is ready for a major round of testing in the next 18 months after having passed a preliminary design review by the European Space Agency (ESA).

The Synergistic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine (SABRE), which is being developed by the U.K. company Reaction Engines, can switch between two modes. In aircraft-engine mode, it uses oxygen from the atmosphere, and in rocket-engine mode, it burns an oxidizer carried onboard together with the fuel liquid hydrogen.

Pro-ISIS channel issues guide to buying weapons on dark web, using them against Westerners

A pro-ISIS Telegram channel has posted a step-by-step guide on how to procure weapons anonymously on the dark web and use them in revenge attacks against the West.

The message, which was written in English and directed at militant Muslims, starts off with a Q&A display on how radicals who want to avenge the death of an Islamic State (ISIS) member can do so by buying untraceable weapons.

The post also provides a tutorial that "details steps and measures to anonymously access the Deep Web through the TOR browser, anonymous email service and Bitcoins," according to a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

The dark web is a part of the Internet that is hidden and lies beyond the reach of conventional search engines. Users are mostly anonymous and, untraceable, and they pay for services or goods with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Tor was designed as an encrypted browser that uses special coding to keep browsing histories secret.

Preposterous! Pompeo ‘setting the stage for war with Iran,’ says Bush-era official

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is “setting the stage for a war with Iran,” says a Bush-era official, claiming he sees the same pattern that developed ahead of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Lawrence Wilkerson, who once served as chief of staff for former US Secretary of State Colin Powell, made the comments in an interview with nonprofit news organization The Real News Network.

“I’m looking at the same kind of trail, as it were, that happened just prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the same characters with a few new additions actually laying that trail down,” he said.

Pompeo was recently warned about going to war with Iran by Republican Senator Rand Paul, reminding him that he has no “permission” to do so without Congress approval.

Even after Trump won the presidency, Jared Kushner was embarrassed by his father-in-law, according to Vicky Ward’s terrific new book, Kushner, Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
In a speech to hundreds of New York bankers and businessmen on Dec. 16, 2016, Jared admitted that Trump was “easy to hate from afar.” But not to worry, he said, Trump wouldn’t be keeping his campaign promises — especially on immigration.

One banker who heard the speech was appalled, shocked by Jared’s arrogance in thinking he could “control” the president.

Joke’s on him. Turns out Jared was right. He does control Trump.

Donald Trump Calls Pope Francis to Offer Reconstruction Support for Notre Dame

President Donald Trump spoke with Pope Francis on Wednesday to offer condolences after the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.
“Just had a wonderful conversation with Pope Francis offering condolences from the People of the United States for the horrible and destructive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Restoration of the famous Catholic cathedral will take several years and billions of dollars after the destructive fire on Monday.

Trump offered assistance for the process from the United States.

“I offered the help of our great experts on renovation and construction as I did in my conversation yesterday with President Emmanuel Macron of France,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The fire occurred during Holy Week, just prior to Easter Sunday, which prompted the president to recognize the season.

“I also wished both Pope Francis and President Macron a very Happy Easter!” Trump said.

Robert Mueller Named One of the ‘Top 10 World’s Greatest Leaders’ by FORTUNE Magazine

FORTUNE magazine named special counsel Robert Mueller number three on its list of the “Top 10 World’s Greatest Leaders” Thursday.

“Few people on either side of the partisan divide seem satisfied with the outcome of Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections,” FORTUNE wrote in its profile of Mueller. “But that very dissatisfaction speaks to the nobly impartial example the former FBI director set as he led an arduous, sensitive investigation.”

“He and his team didn’t uncover the smoking guns that President Trump’s critics craved, nor did they grant the President the exoneration he demanded. Instead, sticking to the evidence and tuning out the hype, they exposed serious wrongdoing and shed light on systemic flaws that the nation is now more likely to address,” the profile continued.

Illegal Migrants Walk Right Past Group of Congressmen as They Cross the Border

A group of congressmen touring the Arizona-Mexico border completely missed the four illegal migrants nearby who were able to cross the border undetected.

Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs led a border tour on Tuesday alongside four other GOP congressmen, according to a Washington Examiner reporter who was on the scene. The five lawmakers were there to inspect smuggling activity taking place in the area.

However, they did not catch the three women and one child who passed by, remaining covered as they walked through brush and overgrown water plants on the border near Yuma, Arizona.

The group of migrants, however, were not necessarily hiding from anyone. After crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, they approached a nearby house and asked for water. After giving them something to drink, the homeowner, Dennis, pointed them in the direction to find the Border Patrol.

ISIS-Related Group Threatens to Destroy What’s Left of Notre Dame

Fans of fanatical terrorist group ISIS were happy that a fire partially damaged Notre Dame Cathedral and have made threats on the internet to take down the surviving bell towers.

Al-Muntasir, an ISIS-linked group, posted a photoshopped image of the towers burning with the words “Wait for the next.” When the nearly nine century old church went up in flames, the group posted a picture of the blaze with the caption: “Have a good day.”

Despite this, officials determined the fire was accidental and was not arson or part of a terrorist attack.
