1, Exclusive: Trump says ‘major, major’ conflict with North Korea possible, but seeks diplomacy
(This is a perfect example of what happens when you let a problem ferment instead of dealing with it when its minor. The cost of fixing the North Korean threat to the world today may be so large that it will have very lasting effects on history and culture and law. Perhaps some orders of things will change in ways we can’t predict, but won’t like. All because of Obama, and others before him, ludicrous policy of “strategic patience.”)
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday a major conflict with North Korea is possible in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute.
“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely,” Trump told Reuters in an Oval Office interview ahead of his 100th day in office on Saturday.
Nonetheless, Trump said he wanted to peacefully resolve a crisis that has bedeviled multiple U.S. presidents, a path that he and his administration are emphasizing by preparing a variety of new economic sanctions while not taking the military option off the table.
“We’d love to solve things diplomatically but it’s very difficult,” he said.
Trump lavished praise on Chinese President Xi Jinping for Chinese assistance in trying to rein in North Korea. The two leaders met in Florida earlier this month.

5. Shock Report: Migrants Become Less Integrated the Longer They Stay in Europe
A new Norwegian study has found the gap in labour participation rates between citizens born in Norway and third world migrants widens the longer newcomers have been in the country.
Researchers at the Ragnar Frisch Centre for Economic Research uncovered “encouraging signs of labour market integration during an initial period upon migrants’ admission”.But after a period of just five to 10 years, according to the report, “the integration process goes into reverse with widening immigrant-native employment differentials and rising rates of immigrant social insurance dependency”.

8. German ‘gun club’ raided over possible migrant attack
More than 100 officers have swooped on 11 sites in the state of Bavaria belonging to members of an extremist gun club. Investigators believe they may have been planning attacks on minorities.
(So now not being for mass immigration to the point of annihilation of your country, culture, history and people, gets you raided if you belong to a gun club on a suspicion of what you might do. Imagine what they would do to muslims who own cars if they were even handed on that thinking)

Last minute video. Its quite well done. Another university campus in the US as a leftist indoctrination centre.
The problem in Korea can be followed back to when Truman and then Ike refused to face down or take on China and the Soviet Union, we have spent the time since the trying to find a substitute for victory and failing. Now we are faced with removing not only one nuclear armed despot but also removing a nuclear armed theocracy. Just about everyone in the world is concentrating on NORK but NORK is an active partner (with the approval and help of China) with Iran. I don’t know which way China and Russia will jump if/when we are forced to remove NORKs nuclear program although I suspect Putin will set back and watch the fight waiting to see if he can grab part of China. Iran on the other had will see their source of nuclear weapons removed and will start fighting to split the attention of the west and possibly the military resources to make it easier for NORK and China to force a very unsatisfactory semi peace on the US.
Remember this confrontation is not taking place in a vacuum but is part of a massive move by various groups to remove western civilization from the world so the other groups can dominate the world. Communism wasn’t defeated and didn’t fall in 1992, the Soviet Union fell and the communists around the world have been working to reverse this loss. China is still a communist nation, so is Nam and the left in Europe is close to creating a Union of Soviet Socialist Europe.

Richard, do you agree that this was the very root of—what has seemingly emerged to be—”Politically Correct War”? Unlike myself, you are a military veteran and I would much prefer to hear out your ideas rather than proceed unfettered by the genuine experience of our nation’s armed forces’ veterans.
To my thinking, WWII remains as one of the last, historical, global conflicts that was (widely accepted and generally perceived to be) explicitly defined as a struggle between GOOD and EVIL. In my thinking, it’s difficult to find a more sharply defined division between—at that time, or even now—the notion of RIGHT and WRONG.
With that said and put behind us, Islam is promoting the blurring of that “polar division” in a manner that portends serious consequences.
The most devastating of these pending outcomes is an all-or-nothing (regional or global) battle that sharply redefines all concepts of currently accepted notions regarding “GOOD and EVIL”. A most discouraging prospect is that the recent popularity of “secular humanism” will, somehow, manage to—inadvertently or otherwise—diminish popular perception of what constitutes RIGHT and WRONG.
Too often, all of us continue to hear how there is no definite “wrong” and, instead, there is only whatever “fifty shades of gray”. This, despite how despicable acts such as rape will ALWAYS qualify as the very worst form of wrongdoing.
At the very least, Islam’s ardent promotion of rape and sexual slavery—much less its promotion of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation)—makes it into a profound example of the very worst sort of “Politically Incorrect” warfare. Yet, somehow, Western militaries (and its utterly ineffectual, hypocritical Feminists) are supposed to overlook this horrid doctrine and, instead, treat with this enemy as a supposedly “honorable” sort of opponent.
I cannot possibly expect you to explain this insane sort of hypocrisy. That said, I sincerely hope that you will join me in identifying Islam as a central and most deserving target for “Politically Incorrect” warfare that this modern world has ever known. The notion that Islam has gotten away with this hideous masquerade for over ONE THOUSAND YEARS is a source of revulsion that can only be termed as vomit-worthy.
