North Korean Regime Murders Tourist For Swiping Propaganda Poster

Last year the totalitarian cult regime of North Korea once again showed its extreme hostility to people foolish enough to visit the demented nation. American tourist Otto Warmbier was arrested for trying to take a propaganda poster as a souvenir. Convicted of "subversion," he received a sentence of 15 years of hard labor. (U.S. court typically mete out much longer sentences for "seditious conspiracy.")

But Otto didn't have to serve his sentence. A few weeks ago the North Koreans dumped him off on the U.S. in a coma, which they absurdly claimed was caused by botulism and a medication. (American doctors found no evidence of botulism.) Otto's brain was missing large amounts of tissue in all areas.

Otto just died. He was 22.

I don't understand why people keep going to North Korea. This is a pattern of theirs, seizing foreigners and using them as bargaining chips, or just taking out their political psychosis on them. In addition to frequent arrests, there was the murder of a South Korean woman tourist by a North Korean border guard a few years ago.

Actually the North Koreans aren't way off base to assume that American visitors are spies. Why else would anyone in their right mind want to go there? Other than that freak Dennis Rodman, Americans have not been welcome there. (If the CIA or other U.S. "intelligence agencies" sent spies, they'd probably not send their own personnel. Too risky. They'd get some journalist or whoever to report back to them. But no spy would be able to access much in the way of secrets there.)

I suspect the North Koreans savagely beat Otto, then waited for the external wounds to heal before shipping his comatose body back to his family. Nice. Or maybe a bad reaction to an experimental brainwashing drug? Whatever, true to form, the North Koreans refuse to explain but do their usual thing of shoving preposterous lies in the world's face that insult our intelligence. This soon after the cult dictator Kim Jong-un ordered the murder of his half brother in a Malaysian airport, which they followed up with more absurd lies and bellicose demands aimed at Malaysia for daring to do a proper investigation and arresting the perpetrators.

Someday, someone's gonna have to take care of these bastards.

Otto Warmbier in the grip of North Korean goons.

 Otto had good reason for feeling bad. But it would turn out much worse for him than he knew...

 So long, Otto.

U.S. Sailors May Have Had to Sacrifice Shipmates to Prevent Sinking

The U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a Filipine cargo ship off the coast of Japan.. Seven sailors were killed. Their bodies were found inside the ship.

It was reported that the ship could have sank. The crew prevented it. One thing they must have done was seal off the compartments open to the sea by locking the watertight doors.

The sailors killed were in their bunks- which would have been on a lower level in the ship.

Which makes me wonder if they weren't drowned when the compartment doors were sealed.

By the way, that ship, a mere destroyer, cost a pretty penny. $1.5 billion, or 1,500 millions of dollars. The ship has very advanced navigation and warning equipment, so it's a mystery so far as to how the accident could have happened.

Guided Missile Destroyer USS Fitzgerald. Sail on, O Mighty Navy!

Islamofascist Terrorists Murder 31 People In Mogadishu, Somalia Restaurant

Al-Shabab bragged they did it. They set off a car bomb, then 5 terrorists methodically went through the restaurant, murdering people.

It has been common for the Somali Islamofascist group al-Shabab to target restaurants, hotels, and other such "soft targets."

Al-Shabab has also launched terrorist attacks into neighboring Kenya, in a bid to force Kenya to withdraw its troops from Somalia, where they help prop up the government against al-Shabab. These terror raids included one on a major shopping, mall, an on a university, during which many students were murdered. The consequences have included Kenyan government pressure on Somalis living in Kenya, who are now all considered suspect.

For some odd reason, people like Jeremy Scahill think everything would have been fine if the U.S. had allowed the Islamofascists to take over Somalia in the first place. Very strange.

Someday, leftists like George Galloway and various "peace activists" are going to have to face the reality of Islamofascist terrorism, and come up with serious proposals for dealing with it. Until then, other than appealing to war weariness, they have no ideological or political leverage to convince the public there is an alternative policy. There is an obvious political and moral gap in their worldview about this that needs to be filled.

Slow-Motion Coup Against Trump Takes The Obvious Next Step

Well, who couldn't have seen this one coming?

"Special Counsel" Robert Mueller, who was head of the dreaded secret police agency, the FBI, for 12 years, has expanded his criminal investigation to include obstruction of justice charges against the president of the U.S., Donald Trump. Ostensibly he was appointed to "investigate" possible collusion between Russian "meddling in Our Election" and the Trump campaign. In short order, the "investigation" has been "expanded" and the true target has been made manifest.  [1]

We learned this not through any official announcement, but by the usual method, the surreptitious planting of "news" in complicit media organs.

This latest step in the campaign to neutralize/remove Trump follows the pattern of so many of the previous steps. Elements of the Deep State illicitly "leak" (plant) a story with cooperative media of choice, this time the Washington Post, the hometown newspaper of the power elite of the capital city of the U.S. empire,  with damaging information aimed at Trump. (The other favorite receptacle of the secret police for their excretions is the New York Times. The media pack of running dogs then take the stories from those papers and run with them.)  Next, the Trump camp, often Trump himself, futilely issues an ineffectual verbal counterattack, which is always brushed off by the media.  In this case, Trump's lawyer shrieked his outrage about the leak. (Many of the leaks have been criminal acts under U.S. law, namely the providing of classified information to people not authorized to receive it- namely "journalists. The criminals are either secret policemen of the FBI, CIA, or NSA, or polticians with security clearances.)

So now, for the first time, Trump is a target of a criminal probe. This shortly after Trump finally got public acknowledgement that he hadn't been under investigation all along, before now. (He could never get the FBI boss he recently fired, James Comey, to public state that Trump wasn't under investigation, even though he wasn't. Comey speciously justified keeping a black cloud like this over the head of the president of the U.S., in his recent orchestrated testimony before the Senate "Intelligence" Committee.)

While Mueller, the designated hatchetman du jour, violates ethical an legal standards by sneakily planting a story in the complicit press, we are simultaneously subjected to a propaganda campaign extolling the same Mueller as a paragon of virtue and uprightness, a man of sterling integrity. J. Edgar Hoover himself didn't have a more fawning press.

The upshot of the campaign to get rid of Trump is that the secret police are made ever more supreme in the hierarchy of U.S. power. This is latest contribution of the Democratic Party to constructing the U.S. police state. Starting with Woodrow Wilson, the man who initiated the modern U.S. police state, imprisoned anyone who dared voice oppostion to World War I or the draft and gave us the hated Espionage Act, through FDR, then Truman, who created the CIA and NSA, then LBJ, who unleashed every element of the secret police state on the anti-war and black power movements, to Obama, who perfected NSA total domestic electronic surveillance and used the Espionage Act bequeathed to him by Wilson to terrorize and persecute whistleblowers, the Democratic Party, far from being "liberal," has proven itself a politically repressive menace.

But it must be noted in passing that Donald Trump is one of the most monumental assholes that has ever existed.

1]  The list of crimes against human rights committed by Mueller when he was boss of the FBI is way too extensive and detailed to adequately summarize here. There was a systematic campaign of entrapment operations to create fake "terror plots" which the FBI then "smashed." Books and articles have been written exposing this fraudulent political theater. And the FBI of course continued  the practices it has throughout its existence, of warrantless burglaries, planting of spy devices, harassment, sabotage, theft, and overall persecution of all manner of political dissidents of a progressive persuasion and people the FBI just doesn't like. The use of illegal NSA intercepts to bring criminal cases became institutionalized under Mueller. See "Robert Mueller Arrogated To Himself Sweeping Power To Ignore U.S. Constitution."

Anti-Muslim Bigot & Demagogue U.S. President Trump Slimes London Mayor After Terrorist Attack

The city of London just experienced a rampage by three Islamofascists who murderously drove a van into people, then attacked bar-goers just enjoying life, with long knives, killing seven people and wounding 48, 18 grievously enough to be listed in critical condition.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq  Khan, a Muslim, naturally spoke to reassure the citizenry and to vow that terrorism wouldn't intimidate the people of London. One thing he said was this:

“You will see an increased police presence today, including armed officers and uniformed officers,” Khan said on Sunday, June 4th. “There is no reason to be alarmed by this.”

The U.S. president, rather than showing solidarity and support, instead attacked Khan in a thoroughly dishonest fashion.

Trump deliberately distorted what Mayor Khan said by pretending he was telling people not to be alarmed by terror attacks (which actually would have been fine if he had said that):

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” Trump verbally ejaculated.

The mayor’s office responded to Trump's gratuitous attack that  Khan “has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police — including armed officers — on the streets.”

Thus the mayor took the high road, saying he had more pressing matters to attend to than to respond to Trump's slur. He's right- getting into a pissing match with a dishonest skunk like Trump is a bad idea. (Witness the fate of the other Republicans who ran for president against Trump. Trump's entire strategy was to personally insult them in juvenile terms. And it worked. Then he did it to Clinton, who won, but lost, because under the rules of the World's Greatest Democracy, sometimes the person with fewer votes wins.)

But Trump wasn't through. He launched another attack on Khan in reaction to the statement from the Mayor's office that responded to Trump's initial assault:

“Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!” Trump tweeted in his usual dignified fashion, perhaps sitting on the toilet at the time.

Trump has been holding a grudge against Khan since 2016, when Khan declared Trump "ignorant" about Islam (a factually true statement) and was quoted in  Time magazine saying, “I’m confident that Donald Trump’s approach to politics won’t win in America.”

So Trump went on British television to issue an ominous threat: "I think they're very rude statements and frankly, tell him, I will remember those statements,” Trump growled.  “They're very nasty statements.”

I'll tell you who makes nasty statements... well I don't have to, do I?

FUCK Common Decency!
