North Korea SEND YOU SAY: "If necessary, we will attack White House without notice
There was no doubt in President Obama's mind when he accused North Korea of hacking into Sony Pictures and releasing some sensitive information. As it turns out, the White House knew for a fact that North Korea was the culprit, because the National Security Agency had already hacked into Pyongyang's…
As of recent not only has the United States been under attack from the White House and law makers over 1st Amendment rights but the outsourcing of that fight has been underway.  North Korea decided the movie titled, "the Interview" was to risque and made cyber threats that if the movie were to be released it would hack major movie makers. The threat was met with extreme caution throughout all of Hollywood. A petition was presented to major stars to support the movies release presented by none other than George Clooney and it wasn't received well at all. Clooney was unable to get a single signature and after a very short stint the petition was dismissed. Later it was learned N. Korea had help in the hacking scheme and was indirectly responsible.       The hack took place even though Sony Pictures pulled it and the U.S. in defiance grew angry over the inability to see the film due to threats from a Dictator like Kim Jong Un. The idea was that of how could any extension of the U.S. bow to demands over C ...
White House's Lisa Monaco and FBI's Joe Demarest in NY telling cyber group that there is certainty North Korea was behind Sony attack.
Don't give up hope. I know things are looking pretty bad right now in our nation. It seems as if over the last few years America has been going through some catastrophic changes. The new political climate in America has this nation so divided that if we as a nation were attempting to row a boat, we would be rowing around in circles. As it stands right now America has lost its luster in many ways. The world outside of us looks at us with disgust and distrust. It seems we have surrendered a position as the leader of the free world and the respect that accompanied it. Old glory flies tattered, torn and faded above the White House and Capital. Russia marches in to conquer its neighbor. China is pushing its boundaries with Japan. Muslim terrorist are murdering raping and killing at will. They are kidnaping women and daughters and making them slaves. They are burying babies alive and beheading their parents. Christians are being crucified in public. Yazidies are being stoned.

HONOLULU - U.S. President Barack Obama authorized additional sanctions against North Korea in what he said was the first U.S. response to the cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment, the White House said on Friday.
North Korea is claiming that there is clear evidence that the U.S. government was behind Sony's movie The Interview. North Korea is threatening to blow up multiple citadels in the U.S., including the White House and the Pentagon. A rant by North Korean authorities was published in a state run news a…
By Charles Hurt I am not — nor ever have been — a member in good standing of the Kim Jong-un Fan Club. In fact, I am pretty sure the teacup child despot inherited his father’s seat in the Axis of Evil. I think it would be really great if everyone in the Axis of Evil were destroyed, though I do not have much faith in American politicians anymore to stick with any such plan long enough to accomplish such a monumental task. Israel, Australia, and even the French will have to take the lead on that. Here in Washington, hawks go limp in the wings with the slightest breeze. And remember when President Obama won the Democratic nomination and then the White House based entirely on his sterling anti-war credentials? And now he is juggling, what, four wars? Including the very same “wrong war” in Iraq that he made his political bones haranguing against. This doesn’t even include all the drone wars he is running in places like Yemen. But his little war fever will soon fade, too. Long before any despots are ...
US Faces Limited Choices on North Korea As President Barack Obama vows a proportionate response to North Korea’s alleged hack of Sony, experts see few measures that could effectively punish the isolated communist dictatorship. The FBI concluded Friday that North Korea was behind the hack of Sony, and the White House is looking at different economic sanctions it could use against the regime, according to the Wall Street Journal. Hawks in Congress have already called on the president to deploy available nonmilitary tools to punish North Korea.

North Korea threatens to blow up the White House
North Korea has moved away from Sony and is now threatening to "blow up" the White House and American cities.
Sony Pictures is a division of the Sony Corporation, which isn’t an American company. It’s a Japanese corporation with world headquarters in Tokyo. And there’s still no clear evidence linking North Korea to the cyberattackers who hacked into Sony Pictures, stealing its intellectual property and emails. Yet the White House says it’s treating the cyberattack on Sony as a "serious National Security matter," and the National Security Council is considering a “proportionate response.” I agree we should guard America against cyberattacks, but why, exactly, is the attack on Sony our concern? Should we be protecting every global company?
I have no idea yet about what exactly we will see over the coming days as a sign from December 21. When I have an official statement I will document it on my blog. But I was wondering about this. Threats came through yesterday from North Korea to blow up the White House. Now I hear that North Korea has hacked into the systems of a Nuclear Plant in South Korea. What if these are are warnings of an impending Nuclear Disaster in the USA, one that will come unexpectedly and without more warning? Is this threat credible from North Korea? If the threat is credible, does this concern you? Is this an escalation in the heightened state of danger in our world today? What if all of a sudden, out of the blue, America gets nuked? Were we warned? Did the sign come and we didn´t understand it? I am not documenting this or grasping at straws. I am talking real life events that are happening now. So many things are happening, from Russia warnings to the USA, Israel under attack, Palestinian statehood vote, Obama and the ...

The White House claims North Korea is responsible for the Sony hack; Here's what they're not telling you.
In 1968 the North Koreans seized the naval vessel Pueblo in international waters. The military was told to stand down and not rescue(sound like I heard that before) one sailor was killed and the rest taken prisoner for 11 months. Lyndon Johnson a liberal was the President. North Korea has our number when a liberal is in the White House
The US White House has discussed some kind of proportional response to North Korea's hacking into Sony's systems. The Internet is heavily locked down in North Korea - it is difficult for North Koreans to see anything their government does not want them to see. I think the US should set up communications to make unfiltered Internet access available in North Korea through WiFi. Create WiFi access in North Korea so North Koreans can access an unfiltered Internet.
The FBI says it has determined that North Korea was behind the hacking of Sony Pictures, which the White House is treating as a "National Security threat".
News Hour: The United States has described a cyber attack on Sony Pictures as a matter of "National Security" and vowed to respond appropriately. The attack led the company to cancel the planned release of a film. White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters in Washington on Thursday that the attack on Sony Pictures, which has been blamed on North Korea, amounted to "destructive activity with malicious intent."

Just in case you wanted to see the graphic Kim Jong Un death scene. What do you think of the Kim Jong death scene? Did it go too far? Bear in mind North Korea has created videos of blowing up the White House and burning American leaders.
By Doc Marquis December 15, 2014 NewsWithViews.com Ever since Barack Obama usurped the White House, almost six years ago, so many people have said to me: “What’s going on?” This guy is destroying America.” “None of this makes sense anymore.” Actually, it makes perfect sense if you know the inner workings and plans of the Illuminati. Obama has been following a carefully crafted and well-honed seven part plan that will usher in the Illuminati’s New World Order. \ This plan has been used by other dictators for more than a century and when we carefully examine this plan of the Illuminati you will understand that everything, which has been happening in the Obama Administration, does make sense. What we shall do is first: examine the 7-Part Plan of the Illuminati, compare it to dictatorial governments in the past, and then compare it to the present Administration and see if it all lines up. And I believe the end results will startle you! In 1773, Dr. Adam Weishaupt started an audacious plan, one t ...
I’m embarrassed as an American that some bigoted anti-Semitic imbecile paid by my tax dollars made such a reprehensible statement about the Israeli Prime Minister, calling him what I can’t print or repeat in polite company. I’m even more embarrassed that the White House has not publicly fired whoever made such a disgusting statement. This administration treats Iran and North Korea with greater respect. It’s not just that Israel deserves better, which it does. It’s that Americans deserve better.
There’s some rare happy news out of North Korea. They’ve finally released Ohioan Jeffrey Fowle. He’s been in custody for six months, awaiting trial on a charge of – believe it or not – leaving a Bible in a nightclub. Two other Americans are still being held there, including Kenneth Bae, a missionary who’s reportedly suffering severe health problems while serving a 15-year prison sentence for unspecified “hostile acts.” A White House spokesman said they’ll continue working actively to get them released. By the way, a reminder: Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi has now been held in a foreign prison longer than Jeffrey Fowle. Would it take that much work to pick up the phone and call the President of MEXICO to get him released? (from Gov Mike Huckabee)

How North Korea Could Cripple the U.S. A single nuke exploded above America could cause a national blackout for months. By R. JAMES WOOLSEY And PETER VINCENT PRY Over the past three days, North Korea has launched six short-range guided missiles or projectiles in tests that landed in the Sea of Japan. The launches were of a piece with Pyongyang's springtime custom of muscle-flexing, undertaken to extract concessions from the West in exchange for stopping the provocations. The Obama Administration would do well to ignore these minor fireworks and focus on the much greater threat of a long-range North Korean missile carrying a nuclear warhead. So far President Obama has seemed content to parry North Korea's thrusts, much as his White House predecessor did. The George W. Bush administration did not distinguish itself in recognizing, or acting on, the danger from North Korea. Last month, in a worrying sign of similar detachment, Mr. Obama essentially dismissed the Defense Intelligence Agency conclusion that No ...
It's been a good week on getting the book ready! Some nice people are saying nice things about it: “With stellar reporting and strong writing, Louise Esola has rescued a largely forgotten incident of the Vietnam war: the sinking of the destroyer Frank E. Evans in 1969. “American Boys” traces the sailors from hometowns across America to their service aboard the ill-fated ship, giving the sailors the respect that their country has denied them. “American Boys” could easily become a classic story of men and war.” --Tony Perry, Los Angeles Times “Louise Esola’s finely-wrought account of a Vietnam-era disaster at sea and its unending impact on the drowned sailors’ loved ones will echo in your mind long after you’ve put it down. This beautiful, heart-breaking book should be required reading at the Pentagon and the White House.” --Jack Cheevers, author of “Act of War: Lyndon Johnson, North Korea, and the Capture of the Spy Ship Pueblo.”
IMPORTANT FACTS on INDIAN NUCLEAR PROGRAM :- ** India’s nuclear program had its inception in March 1944 by Dr. Homi Bhabha when he founded the nuclear research center, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai. ** India’s first successful nuclear detonation was called Operation Smiling Buddha that was tested in 1974 with a yield (8 kiloton) equivalent to half of the energy generated by Little Boy (atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima). ** Operation Shakti (Pokhran-II) was India’s first fusion bomb with an estimated yield of 58 kilotons. ** India became sixth country to have tested nuclear bombs. ** One of the testing shafts of the 1998 nuclear tests by India was code named “White House.” ** India’s First Nuclear Reactor was Apsara. It was also the first nuclear reactor in Asia. Apsara went critical at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Trombay on August 4, 1956. ** Tarapur Atomic Power Station (Maharashtra) was the first nuclear power plant in India.

I thought you'd enjoy this! It's one you want your Children and Grandchildren to read. They won't believe this happened, but it DID. Harry & Bess (This seems unreal.) Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation's history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there. When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an 'allowance' and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year. After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drov ...

What is the present resident in the White House going to do? He has this Putin fellow to deal with and now North Korea just told UN people to mind their own business as issue was raised about North Korean violation of human rights, etc. Quite a dilemma, is it not? But then, maybe he will tread softly on the human rights issue, since our rights are being taken away step by step via a horror known as "Executive Orders" and growing rejection of the U.S. Constitution :-(
Former US President Jimmy Carter has said he hand-writes letters to foreign and US leaders in an effort to evade what he described as pervasive US electronic surveillance. Mr Carter, 89, told the Associated Press he had "no doubt" the US monitored and recorded "almost every telephone call" and email. His humanitarian efforts bring him in contact with a range of foreign and US political leaders. He left the White House in 1981. 'Monitored' "I don't think there's any doubt now that the NSA or other agencies monitor or record almost every telephone call made in the United States, including cell phones, and I presume email as well," Mr Carter told the Associated Press news agency in an interview. "I feel that my telephone calls and my email are being monitored, and there are some things I just don't want anybody to know," he added, describing modern surveillance as a violation of Americans' basic civil rights. Mr Carter said he began writing letters in long hand two to three years ago, before former ex-Nation ...

He has accomplished his number one goal! Destroy our military! March 18, 2014 Recently, as part of the overall White House budget rollout, Defense Department officials publicly released details of the proposed National Security budget for Fiscal 2015. The budget submission comes at a time when numerous events around the world illustrate how potentially challenging the emerging post-war security environment could be for U.S. interests. In Afghanistan, U.S. forces are drawing down with uncertainty lingering over whether a bilateral security agreement might be achieved, which leaves the possibility open for complete withdrawal. In the greater Middle East, tensions are high in Egypt, Syria, and Iran. In the Asia-Pacific, China recently announced a 12% increase in defense spending, and North Korea continues to be as militarily provocative as ever. And recently, Russia has taken over the Crimean peninsula. It's with these events in mind, and in consideration of threats like cyber and anti-area/access denial, .. ...

And now for that one TLDR post on your news feed. I think the UN charges against North Korea aren't going to change a thing, for two main reasons. One is simple enough; China will simply veto the decision, much like how Russia will veto any decision regarding Syria in regards to human rights issues. Thus, we simply sigh and resign ourselves; "what can we do?" The second; back in the 1990s, during the Yugoslav Wars, before Iraq or Afghanistan, people actually cared enough about foreign countries to demand we intervene in the face of brutal human rights abuses; protestors marched on the White House, and the British Parliament, and demanded something be done, and something was done. NATO, and the partition of Bosnia and Kosovo, put an end to the conflict. Today, in the wake of disasters like the war in Afghanistan, and the recently ended one in Iraq, we see billions being spent, thousands of lives lost, and for what? Things seem just as bad before we went in, and people are saying "America should stop interf ...
White House 'disappointed' invitation withdrawn for North Korea visit Monday, Feb 10, 2014-Reuters The White House said it was "deeply disappointed" by North Korea's decision to rescind an invitation to U.S. envoy Robert King to visit Pyongyang to discuss the release of imprisoned U.S. missionary Kenneth Bae.

Obama Delays Start of 2014 by Executive Order Posted: 31 Dec 2013 08:19 AM PST (2013-12-31) — Citing the need to protect Americans from the impact of a sluggish economy, health care disruptions and international crises related to Iran, North Korea, Russia, Syria and elsewhere, the White House announced today that President Obama has delayed the start of 2014 by at least a year. Obama reportedly signed the Executive Order in the presidential limo on his way to a golf course in Hawaii, and likened it to “taking a mulligan for 2013,” according to unnamed White House sources. “Rushing into a new year with the lingering problems from 2013 makes little sense,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. “By delaying the start of 2014, the president will be able to work with Democrats in Congress to bring closure to several high profile challenges, and to help voters avoid poor choices in November.” In an official statement, President Obama said, “My decision to delay the new year until the next ...

American Complicity Kishi secretly negotiated a deal with the White House to permit the U.S. military to store atomic bombs in Okinawa and Atsugi naval air station outside Tokyo. (Marine corporal Lee Harvey Oswald served as a guard inside Atsugi’s underground warhead armory.) In exchange, the U.S. gave the nod for Japan to pursue a “civilian” nuclear program. Secret diplomacy was required due to the overwhelming sentiment of the Japanese public against nuclear power in the wake of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings. Two years ago, a text of the secret agreement was unearthed by Katsuya Okada, foreign minister in the cabinet of the first Democratic Party prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama (who served for nine months from 2009-10). Many key details were missing from this document, which had been locked inside the Foreign Ministry archives. Retired veteran diplomat Kazuhiko Togo disclosed that the more sensitive matters were contained in brief side letters, some of which were kept in a mansion freq ...

Biden on delicate mission to defuse tensions in East Asia WASHINGTON, Dec 1 (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden will try to strike a delicate balance of calming military tensions with China while supporting ally Japan against Beijing on a trip to Asia this week that is being overshadowed by a territorial dispute in the East China Sea. Aiming to counter criticism that the United States is neglecting Asia because it is distracted by domestic politics and the Middle East, the White House has long been planning a visit by Biden to Japan, China and South Korea. Those countries are at the heart of a quarrel over two tiny islands claimed by both Tokyo and Beijing that descended into military brinkmanship after China in late November declared an "air defense identification zone" that includes the islands. In Tokyo on Tuesday, Biden will likely assure Japan that a military alliance with the United States dating back to the 1950s remains valid as the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wrangles with China ...

Portrait of the NSA: No detail to small to watch by Ewen MacAskill, The Guardian Barack Obama hailed United Nations secretary General Ban Ki-moon as a “good friend” after the two had sat down in the White House in April to discuss the issues of the day: Syria and alleged chemical weapons attacks, North Korea, Israel-Palestine, and climate change. But long before Ban’s limousine had even passed through the White House gates for the meeting, the US government knew what the secretary general was going to talk about, courtesy of the world’s biggest eavesdropping organization, the National Security Agency. One NSA document – leaked to the Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden just a month after the meeting and reported in partnership with the New York Times – boasts how the spy agency had gained “access to UN secretary general talking points prior to meeting with Potus” (president of the United States). The White House declined to comment on whether Obama had read the talking points in advan ...

The conference was hosted by the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm that manages billions of dollars, including, at the time, some bin Laden family wealth. It also employs Messrs Bush and Baker.

"Olympus Has Fallen" review Coincidentally timely in it’s arrival, Olympus Has Fallen may actually raise some concerns about ideas North Korea may gather from an American movie, since our current relationship with them is not exactly on first-rate terms. It portrays a totally unthinkable scenario much similar to the president’s plane being hijacked in 1997’s Air Force One. Our one advantage maybe that North Korean President Kim Jong-Un’s trouble making gives him no time to watch anything-including American movies.

On this date: 1850, California became the 31st state of the union. 1893, Frances Cleveland, wife of President Grover Cleveland, gave birth to a daughter, Esther, in the White House; it was the first time a president's child was born in the executive mansion. 1919, some 1,100 members of Boston's 1,500-man police force went on strike, plunging the city into chaos. (The strike was broken by Massachusetts Gov. Calvin Coolidge, who brought in replacement officers.) 1926, the National Broadcasting Co.

Eisenhower signed into law the first civil ri ...

But today at a special time of Noon ET, Ed Schultz fights back with Asean Johnson, the extraordinary 9-year-old who stood up to the Mayor of Chicago over the closure of his school.   Also, the White House delays the mandate requiring employers with more than 50 workers to provide health care benefits, stunning a lot of Democrats in Congress who have been fighting for health care for four years.

North Korea, nuclear weapons; North Korea’s Defiant Proposal for Denuclearization Talks Only one week after proposing and then pulling the plug on inter-Korean dialogue over protocol differences, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)’s National Defense Commission on June 16 issued a surprise proposal for “high-level” U.S.-DPRK talks on easing of military tensions, establishment of a peace regime, and “various other issues both parties want to address, including the building of a nuclear-free world proposed by the United States.” A White House statement in response to the offer emphasized the necessity of North Korea taking actions to show its commitment to denuclearization before the United States would accept talks. It stated that such actions would involve North Korea “living up to its obligations to the world, including compliance with the U.N. Security Council resolutions, and ultimately result in denuclearization.” In other words, without accompanying actions that ...
Watched a wee bit of Gerard Butler's new flick 'Olympus Has Fallen' and had to stop watching. Gerard needs to vet his scripts a bit better. If ever there was a film to raise hatred and fear against North Korea, this is it. I got as far as Gerard fighting through the Korean terrorists on the White House lawn, while Korean suicide bombers ran amok and Korean suicide pilots took out tiny targets on the ground eventually crashing through the Washington Monument causing it to collapse twin-tower style on the pedestrians bellow. The symbolism was not subtle and the script and action was worthy of a b-rated Jason Stratham film. Strathams new film "Redemption," by contrast is a compelling critique of modern Britain and the brutality of war. Stratham plays an alcoholic homeless soldier on the streets of London who through fate finds a chance of salvation. Hope to see more of this from Stratham and Gerard needs to have a wee think...
Olympus Has Fallen, had a great plot, great action, but filled with cheesy American propaganda and flag sucking sequences. The acting was so forced and subpar for all the amazing actors in it. But again, cool concept and loved the story line. "North Korea, I'ma let you finish, but the British had the best destruction of the White House of all time..."
After seeing the Olympus Has Fallen movie, I suggested a message (in mind) to North Korean is: " pls kindly stop trying to collapse the White House again". U will never be a father of United American! Lol. Laor mer ha, BlueRay 1080p on 56inh TV by HDMI cable!
In obama's January inaugural address sketching out the promise of a second presidential term, here are some things Barack Obama did not mention: Surveillance. Drones. Syria. Chechnya. North Korea. Benghazi. Guantanamo. And yet from roughly March 6, the day Rand Paul staged his 13-hour Senate filibuster to protest Obama’s drone policies, the White House has been whiplashed from one Foreign Policy and National Security crisis to another. Facing a near constant state of emergency, Obama has been hard-pressed to promote his message on issues like gun control, immigration, health care and the economy. This week is a case in point. Today Obama will unveil a new set of bold executive actions designed to limit greenhouse gas emissions thought to fuel climate change. Yesterday, the Senate easily approved an amendment to its immigration bill that suggests the law will pass that chamber. And as of yesterday, the implementation of Obamacare is less than 100 days away.
we rented a movie last night in our hotel room.Olympus Has Fallen...It is about the White House that was overtaken by North Korea...it was so intense I bit my nails and sat up in the middle of the bed...couldn't even relax on a pillow.David and I are still talking about it today.this really could happen...hope our National Security can learn from the movie.nobody is safe.

North Korea today offered high-level talks with the United States to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula, but the White House said that any talks must involve Pyongyang taking action to show it is moving toward scrapping its nuclear weapons. 6.

Just watched "Olympus Has Fallen" with Morgan Freeman. It was nothing more than a war propaganda film advocating war with North Korea. Of course there was the token comment how the Middle East was celebrating the fall if the White House. The war machine knows that people are tired of all our children, Money, and resources going to war. So they get Hollywood to produce this crap to make people fearful of attack. Shame on Hollywood, the actors, and any movie goer that left with the feeling of needing to protect the USA through war. Wake up people, before its too late!

Japan approves National Security Council bills amid China tensions Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government on Friday approved legislation to set up a National Security Council, moving to strengthen the premier's grip on Foreign Policy in the face of North Korean missile threats and a territorial dispute with China. The hawkish Abe has pursued the formation of Japan's version of the White House's National Security Council to centralize information gathering and speed up decision-making, a move welcomed by U.S. security experts. "We have put in place a structure that allows Japan to comprehensively monitor the country's security," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters at a news conference. The bills are now to be submitted to the current session of parliament, which ends on June 26, for possible enactment in an extraordinary diet session in the fall. The need for a centralized National Security body has been highlighted by North Korea's recent saber-rattling and a deadly January raid by jihad ...
"Mr. Speaker, the presidents Justice Department sold weapons to narco terrorists south of our border who killed one of our finest. The presidents State Department lied about Benghazi with false information provided by the White House. The presidents Attorney General authorized spying on a Fox News journalist and his family for reporting on a North Korea nuclear test. The presidents Justice Dept confiscated phone records of the Associate Press because they reported on a thwarted terrorist attack. The presidents Treasury Department uses the IRS to target political opposition. The presidents Health and Human Services Secretary pressures the insurance companies she is supposed to regulate to promote Obamacare, which is the same law she uses to force citizens to pay for abortion inducing drugs against their religious liberties. Mr Speaker, the presidents dishonesty, incompetence, vengefulness and lack of moral compass lead many to suggest that he is not fit to lead. The only problem is that his Vice President ...
Attorney General Eric Holder Must Go - A Legal Analysis Most people in the country (as evidenced by polls and "man on the street" interviews I have seen on MANY programs) have no idea who our Attorney General is, much less what he has done. In an attempt to investigate the alleged espionage (the government's choice of wording - NOT Republicans') regarding North Korea back in 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ - the head of which is Eric Holder - the U.S. Attorney General) sought a warrant to invade the privacy of James Rosen, a reporter for Fox News. The warrant sought (and was approved by a federal judge) and obtained Rosen's private phone records, his work records, his work and private email accounts, HIS PARENT'S PHONE RECORDS, and other information regarding Rosen. With no help coming from the White House or the DOJ, Congress called Holder to testify before a House committee on May 15, 2013. In response to a question about the DOJ's prosecution of suspected leakers and the journalists to whom . ...
Lucius Sulla If we should ever find out the totality of what happened in Benghazi - from the White House down - the truth would be utterly devastating. There have been questions asked about the reasons Ambassador Stevens went of an after-hour meeting away from the Embassy and who he was meeting with. What was so important that the Ambassador himself felt the need away from his office at night and meet with folks that did not hold consular rank? I have spoken a number of times about the movement of nukes to Syria, Egypt, Libya and Iran. These nukes were moved from Russia via North Korea into Iran for distribution to the nations that intend to invade Israel. China is also complicit in this as well. China seeks to become a super power. It was no coincidence that China showed up in the midst of the North Korean situation - complete with a brand new super carrier built from U.S. technology. It was their job to oversee the transition of the weapons from North Korea to the Middle East. Since this original writin ...

"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN On GPS this Sunday: A GPS panel on Syria, Russia, the White House and the Republican Party. Weighing in will be Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Remnick, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, former Mitt Romney Foreign Policy advisor Dan Senor and American Enterprise Institute scholar Danielle Pletka. “I think that many Democrats, as well, are deeply troubled that the president's [Syria] strategy has been a moral failure and practically has, you know, we've certainly seen the violence spread into Lebanon, creating real risks to Jordan, as well, and to Iraq,” Kristof says. “Now, it's not clear that any other strategy would be any better. He may well say that. But I think there's a lot of real discomfort that the administration has been essentially paralyzed and that this isn't working very well.” Then, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman on some of the bright spots in the U.S. economy. And later, inside the Hermit Kin ...
From the director of Training Day, "Olympus Has Fallen" is an interesting take on the "what if" this happened. Ask yourself, what would happen if the White House was compromised. First off, I couldn't help but think about "Air Force One" starring Harrison Ford as the President, which for its time was a pretty bold concept to think of...(Terrorists hijack Air Force One). In Olympus, basically it's the same concept under different circumstances, with a heck of a lot more intensified action and suspense. Gerald Butler plays a secrete service agent that is thrusted into the mist of a catastrophic event involving a situation derived from tensions between the US and North Korea. Very real scenario considering what's going on in the world today. Not too much is made of how exactly things come into play...they just kind of happen, as you're seeing the White House being taken over in strategic, spectacular, gripping mayhem. Aaron Eckhart plays the President, though not as believable as Harrison Ford was, still, he ...
On the Friday before Memorial day, the IRS was closed due to sequestration while the rest of Washington just plain didn't work. Eric Holder stunned the town by showing up at his desk after HuffPost called for his head yesterday. And President Obama forgot to salute the Marine guarding his helicopter but made up for it by giving him a White House umbrella. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Friday, May 24th, 2013: WHITE HOUSE WANTED TO KEEP ROSEN SUBPOENAS UNDER WRAPS - New Yorker: "The Obama Administration fought to keep a search warrant for James Rosen's private e-mail account secret, arguing to a federal judge that the government might need to monitor the account for a lengthy period of time. The new details are revealed in a court filing detailing a back and forth between the Justice Department and the federal judges who oversaw the request to search a Gmail account belonging to Rosen, a reporter for Fox News. A 2009 article Rosen had written about North Korea sparked an investigation; Ronald C. Machen, Jr., th ...
On Tuesday, President Obama met with President Park Geun-hye of South Korea at the White House, which the Yonhap News agency and every pretty much every news outlet on Earth reported. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Yonhap — South Korea's worldwide leader in news — had any photos. So, you know,…

Latest News »On Line Obama to meet S. Korean president According to Al Jazeera, Barack Obama will host South Korea’s president at the White House next month. The meeting, slated for May 7, is of great importance amid recent tensions raised by North Korea.
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's spokesman says the White House is concerned by war threats coming from North Korea. North Korean state media said Monday that Pyongyang was cancelling the 60-year-old armistice that ended the Korean War.
U.S. military must find ways to meet global threats - and budget demands WASHINGTON -- Pirates prowl the high seas. Terrorists flex their muscles in Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. China gets stronger. Russia grows increasingly inscrutable, and Iran and North Korea remain unpredictable. Trying to find footing in this shifting landscape of international power plays and intrigues is the American military, which right now appears more focused on how to adjust to mandatory budget cuts because the White House and Congress were unable to reach a deal to stop them. Perhaps lost in the debate is the bigger question: What role... ~magmaw
Well this is so reassuring. Are you paying attention? Are you praying for our leaders and world leaders? I complain about them but must be reminded to pray as that is our only hope. Listen carefully to the comments of current leaders such as Vice President Biden, Secretary Kerry, and the Commander of CENTCOM -- as well as to icon of U.S. National Security policy such as Henry Kissinger -- and to former senior White House advisors such as Dennis Ross and Elliot Abrams, and this is what you will hear: The nuclear crisis with Iran is coming to a head. Diplomacy and sanctions have not succeeded and may have run their course. The Iranians are not making concessions. Instead, Tehran is accelerating its nuclear efforts and is dangerously close to building nuclear warheads. North Korea just tested a nuclear warhead with Iranian nuclear officials present, and the two countries may be working hand in glove to get Iran ready to build and deploy The Bomb. President Obama still does not want the U.S. to take the l ...
According to the Huffington Post, on Monday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney commented on the headlines surrounding the Dennis Rodman trip to North Korea
White House doesn't approve of South Oak Cliff grad Dennis Rodman's visit to North Korea WASHINGTON -- The White House says North Korea's government should be focused on the well-being of its citizens, not on "celebrity sporting events" to entertain the country's elite. White House spokesman Jay Carney made the comments in response to a question about ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman's recent visit to North Korea. Rodman watched a basketball game with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Upon his return to the U.S., Rodman said Kim wants President Barack Obama to call him. Carney says the U.S. already has direct channels of communication to North Korea's government and those are the channels it will continue to use. "He loves basketball. ... I said Obama loves basketball. Let's start... ~SportsMan
Obama and Shinzo Abe affirm US-Japan security alliance 22 February 2013 At the White House, they said the two powers would co-operate to promote regional stability and economic growth. Mr Abe, elected in December for his second stint as Japanese leader, said Japan would proceed in a "calm manner" in a territorial dispute with China. He said "the trust and the bond" in the US- Japan alliance was restored. In remarks to the press after the Oval Office talks, Mr Obama said the alliance between the US and Japan was the "central foundation for our regional security and so much of what we do in the Pacific region". Mr Abe said both countries had to take a tough stance on North Korea, which recently conducted a third nuclear test. "We agreed that we would co-operate with each other in dealing resolutely with North Korea," Mr Abe said. Mr Abe is serving as Japan's top leader for a second time, after a brief period in power in 2006-7. He is the fifth Japanese prime minister that Mr Obama has met in office. 'Streng ...
Washington Week - Focus Turns to US-Pacific Ties WASHINGTON — U.S.-Pacific ties take center stage in Washington this week, as Japan’s prime minister visits the White House on Friday. North Korea’s latest nuclear test will be a prime topic of discussion between President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. "The actions taken by North Korea cannot be permitted or condoned by the international community, and I believe it is essential that Japan and the United States work together to adopt a new U.N. Security Council resolution that includes additional sanction measures," Abe said. Last week, the Security Council condemned the nuclear test and began work on what was termed "appropriate measures" in response. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon conferred with Secretary of State John Kerry, who said North Korea must face consequences. "This week's test was an enormously provocative act that warrants a strong, a swift, and a credible response from the global community," Kerry said. While sh ...
North Korea: more comments on North Korea's third nuclear test A Cold War response to North Korea's latest challenge London (CNN) -- As the dust settles from a third -- more effective and yet miniaturized -- North Korean nuclear test, the question rings out: What do they want? What are the intentions of Kim Jong Un, the newest, and youngest incarnation of the Dear Leader? The timing is of course, everything. Setting the test for the day of President Barack Obama's State of the Union address is not random luck. It puts pressure exactly where pressure is wanted: in Washington. As the White House doubtless received the news in the early hours of the morning, they would have been scrambling to find out what they do know. They will also have been fending off calls from the media along with more than a few concerned senators and congressmen. The message from the latter will no doubt have sounded something like the following, "What are you doing about this?" The call will be to act, but how, what, and where? Dou ...
Thursday, 14 February 2013 Republicans Halt Hagel Pentagon vote Chuck Hagel is seen by members of his own party as something of a renegade Republican senators have delayed a vote to confirm President Obama's nominee for US secretary of defense. They say questions remain about Senator Chuck Hagel but have agreed to an up-or-down vote on 26 February. Mr Hagel's backers say the US military needs a leader in place while troops remain in Afghanistan and North Korea has just tested a nuclear device. Outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta is to remain in his post until Mr Hagel is confirmed. 'Not without consequence' White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denounced the delay, saying Senate Republicans had put political posturing ahead of America's National Security. "A clear majority in the US Senate supports Senator Hagel's confirmation, so today's action runs against both the majority will of the Senate and our nation's interest," he said in a statement. "This waste of time is not without consequence. For ...

Today: Defense Budget, North Korea, Betting On Sports, Oscar Docs: 'How To Survive A Plague' Defense Budget Without a deal by March first, automatic, across-the-board spending cuts, known as sequestration, kick in and some fear the effects of deep cuts on military spending. The defense budget accounts for roughly twenty percent of federal spending. In a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Michele Flournoy, former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, says deep cuts should be the "last resort, not the default course of action." She suggests a "restructuring" of the Pentagon, which would help reign-in spending but still allow for "readiness to deter adversaries or respond effectively in crises." Host Neal Conan speaks with Flournoy and NPR Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman about the looming sequestration and how it will affect the military. North Korea North Korea's latest nuclear test prompted calls from the White House for swift consequences and lead the United Nations Security Council to call an em ...

US arms sales to Asia set to boom Washington, Dec 2 (bdnews24.com/Reuters)— US sales of warplanes, anti-missile systems and other costly weapons to China's and North Korea's neighbors appear set for significant growth amid regional security jitters. Strengthening treaty allies and other security partners is central to the White House's "pivot" toward a Pacific region jolted by maritime territorial disputes in China's case, and missile and nuclear programs, in North Korea's. The pivot "will result in growing opportunities for our industry to help equip our friends," said Fred Downey, Vice President for National Security at the Aerospace Industries Association, a trade group that includes top US arms makers. Demand for big-ticket US weapons is expected to stay strong for at least the next few years, the trade group said in a 2012 year-end review and forecast released in December. Fears resulting from China's growing military spending should lead to enough US sales in South and East Asia to more than offse ...
Barack Obama hosted a performance by a musician who sang about murdering American soldiers and their families. This comes just two years after he hosted a performance by a Chinese piano player who played a song at the White House praising North Korea for killing American soldiers in the Korean War. Viewers of Fox News will recall that he also once hosted a musician who sang in support of someone who murdered a police officer.
Obama's destruction of the Bill of Rights... On the human rights front, the United States of America has now plummeted to a level approaching that of North Korea. Thanks to President Obama, who increasingly appears to be a devout communist bent on destroying America culture and economy, the White House now creates secret kill lists of American citizens to be assassinated by government agents. This is not denied in Washington. It is, in fact, celebrated as an "important tool" for the completely fabricated "war on terror." With his signing of the NDAA in late 2011, Obama also nullified due process and the right to a fair trial. Now, American citizens who are merely "named" by the White House as being possibly involved in anything they call "terrorism" can be kidnapped and taken away to secret government interrogation centers where they can be held indefinitely, without charge, without a trial and without any civil rights or human rights. This was all put in place by a president re-elected by over 50% of the ...
Myanmar moving from N Korea Myanmar has taken "positive steps" to reduce its military relationship with North Korea, the White House said ahead of a historic visit by President Barack Obama to Yangon. Myanmar, also known as Burma, was suspected of pursuing military and nuclear cooperation with Pyongyang during long years of junta rule which ended last year. "We've had a dialogue with the Burmese government about the need to reduce their relationship with North Korea," Ben Rhodes, a US deputy National Security advisor said on Air Force One as Obama flew to Asia. "We've seen them take some positive steps in that direction. And what we'd like to see, again, is an end to the relationship that has existed between Burma and North Korea." Rhodes noted that Washington had also begun the early stages of a military-to-military engagement with Myanmar, and hinted that over time, the country could expect to join annual US military exercises with Thailand. Reports of military cooperation between Myanmar and North Kore ...
Let's look at the big picture: This debate was on Foreign Policy. Obama's record: 1. US Ambassador killed, first time in over 30 years. 2. 3 Navy Seals killed in Libya at the same time. 3. A helicopter of Navy Seals killed overseas in Afghanistan. 4. Radical Muslim Brotherhood takes over Egypt, a former Ally. 5. Venezuelan Hugo Chavez thumbs his nose at the US and endorses Obama for 2012. 6. White House leaks that are so severe that even long term Demoncratic Senator Dianne Feinstein was shocked. She is on the Senate Intelligence committee. 7. Israel has to embarrass Obama in a news conference pleading not to go back to 1967 borders. 8. Israelis don't believe Obama has their backs if they need to attack Iran's nuclear facility, creating great confusion with our main Middle East Ally. 9. Syria in deadly civil war, 33,000 people killed. 10. Middle East in flames and riots and Anti American sentiment at an extremely low state. 11. Iran 4 years closer to a nuclear bomb. 12. North Korea continuing to threaten ...
In South Korea, President Obama may have been a little too honest with another world leader. CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante reports.
Despite the seemingly endless articles citing Iran as an existential threat to both Israel and the United States, our national debt and Washington's profligate spending is actually more threatening than an ostensible Iranian nuclear weapons program. When Clinton gave nuclear secrets to China, they shared that knowledge with Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea. With help from Russia, Iran now has nuclear knowledge, and you can't bomb knowledge. Any war with Iran will be ridiculous and have NOTHING to do with their nuclear capability. Obama says the US is at war with Al Qaeda, but our Real Enemy, those Attacking the US Constitution and our way of life, occupy the White House, the halls of Congress, and the Senate floor. Al Qaeda maybe thousands strong, and Islam has millions who resent America for our failed Foreign Policies. Again, policies which violate our own Constitution. Someone is pulling the strings on our National Security and Foreign Policy. It's NOT Obama and won't be Romney. He who controls the mone ...
Has anyone seen the news story today from Reuters? Here it is.WASHINGTON/JERUSALEM, Sept 11 (Reuters) - In a highly unusual rebuff to a close ally, the White House said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama would not meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a U.S. visit later this month, as tensions escalated over how to deal with Iran's nuclear program. The apparent snub, coupled with Netanyahu's sharpened demands for a tougher U.S. line against Iran, threatened to plunge U.S.-Israeli relations into crisis and add pressure on Obama in the final stretch of a tight presidential election campaign. WHY WOULD OBAMA DO THIS AT THIS POINT? Who knows. Maybe he doesn't want his foreign friends seeing the United States wanting to have relations with Israel! OF COURSE THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS! I sometimes go to youtube and watch the videos of Obama mocking the Bible, and then I think about how he made the statement that the U. S. is no longer a Christian nation, then I saw how he has supported thing ...
Campaign rhetoric, all BS!!, Back when Barry Goldwater , a Republican, ran against Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, Goldwater said we sohuld go bomb the *** out on North Korea and end the war. Johnson called him a WAR MONGER and defeated Goldwater, and when Johnson got in the White House, he bombed the *** out of North Korea and ended the war. All of this bull from both parties is BULL.!!
Why don't we just go ahead and give the keys to the Oval Office...for that matter...the whole *** White House...to the Chineese, Russians, Burmeese, Iranians, or Lil Kim of North Korea? And let's see if they do any better, and how we all fare under their power...I bet ol boy from Chik-fil-a wouldn't say nothing then.AND NEITHER WOULD YOU!.just sayin...
This is what is on a friend's mind on my Tagged site... TonyZ!!! You go Tonyz "I am a Democrat, and I know that Obama is the very best man for the job right now. The Republicans say that if they win over the White House, they would immediately cut Medicaid, Medicare, Food Stamps, Student Loans, The Social Security Agency will be destroyed, The Post Office, Amtrak Rail Service, All Public Schools would be closed, Affirmative Action and FEMA would be destroyed, No Abortions even in the cases of rape, sickness or incest will be allowed, and this country would be returned to the same backwards thinking of 40 and 50 years ago. They would have already attacked Iran, Syria and North Korea; Russia and China would get involved, and we would be in a major war right now. We've come too far to let these greedy rich people take all of our rights away. Wake up and smell the coffee! Why can't the Republicans ever tell the truth about Mr.Obama. 90 percent of all you hear on the news about President Obama from the Mitt Ro ...
2012/06/13 03:46 KST No problem with S. Korea's longer-range missiles, if defensive: Sen. Levin (ATTN: UPDATES with State Department's position in last 8 paras WASHINGTON, June 12 (Yonhap) -- Sen. Carl Levin, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Tuesday that he would not take issue with South Korea's development of longer-range missiles if they are deployed in a "defense and non-threatening" way. "If they want to do it in a non-threatening way, totally defensive way at its own expense, I don't have any problem going on," he said at the National Press Club. South Korea's missile capability is a sensitive diplomatic issue with its top ally, the U.S., and also a politically charged topic at home. Seoul can't possess ballistic missiles with the range of more than 300 km (186 miles) and a payload heavier than 500 kg (1,102 pounds) under a 2001 agreement with Washington. South Korea's conservatives have been calling for the extension of the range to cover all of North Korea. The Lee Myung-b ...

John Edwards eldest daughter to take the stand: the White House in 2008.Cate Edwards fled the courtroom in tears...
"North Korea is only further isolating itself by engaging in provocative acts, and is wasting its money on weapons and propaganda displays while the North Korean people go hungry," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
