Most Americans Say Trump Making North Korea Situation Worse

WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea’s nuclear weapons development is spooking most Americans, and two-thirds of them say President Donald Trump’s war of words with the isolated nation’s leader is making the situation worse. Less than 1 in 10 thinks Trump’s comments are making it better.
Those are the findings of a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, as tensions between the adversaries escalate and North Korea comes closer to its goal of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the continental U.S.

(*For the record , I disagree with the concept that most Americans oppose Trump , on this , or torture , or stumping the first amendment during Flag Gate . No matter what he does , he's the outsider , that makes him a victim , and most Americans feel a patriotic duty to stand by Trump , unquestionably , that if they don't , they're somehow unfit to hold their position . this is Fake NEWS! , designed to make Americans look like something their not .)

Trump Looks Set to Start Blowing Up the Iran Deal

Decertification would begin a 60-day congressional review period during which the administration may propose legislation to “strengthen” the agreement and Congress may decide to re-impose sanctions, according to The Washington Post.

If Trump pursues this strategy, he will be going against his own secretary of defense, James Mattis, who told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was in the national security interest of the U.S.

He will also be going against the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, who told the committee in a written statement last month that “The briefings I have received indicate that Iran is adhering to its JCPOA obligations.”>>>

Ron Paul on Horrific New Revelations on CIA Torture

The CIA has been forced to declassify some 270 memos from its secret torture facilities in Afghanistan. The story these memos tell is horrific and jolting. The people tortured were not terrorists. They were suspects. Some may say this is all ancient history, but consider the current president’s view on torture. He said he’s torture in a heartbeat. Are we still “torturing some folks”?

Trump's New Gitmo Policy: Let Hunger Strikers Starve to Death

Disturbing news from Guantánamo, via the human rights organization Reprieve. Yesterday, in a press release, Reprieve explained that the authorities at Guantánamo have stopped force-feeding hunger-striking prisoners, a practice that has existed for ten years, because of a new Trump administration policy.”
Hunger strikers have existed at Guantánamo almost since the prison opened, and in 2013 a prison-wide hunger strike drew worldwide condemnation for President Obama’s inaction in moving towards closing the prison, as he had promised on his second day in office. Inconvenienced by Republican lawmakers, who had raised considerable obstacles to the release of prisoners, Obama had chosen not to challenge the Republicans, and had, instead, done nothing.>>>

Las Vegas gunman sprayed 200 shots at hotel security guard six minutes before opening fire on crowd

Paddock, who had installed three cameras to monitor the approach to his suite, opened fire through the door, spraying 200 shots down the hall and wounding the guard, who alerted other security officials, Lombardo said.

Six minutes later, Paddock began a 10-minute killing spree that killed 58 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, Lombardo said.

"Since he only fired 200 shots so we treated the event as routine" (sarcasm)

Trump's Justice Department moves on Harvey Weinstein and orders FBI to open probe over fears he will 'do a Polanski'

The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned.

DailyMail.com understands the move came at the behest of the Department of Justice, run by Donald Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul.

While it is unknown whether the DOJ order came directly from Sessions, the move is likely to be seen in a political light given Weinstein's friendship with Trump foe Hillary Clinton.

The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein plans to head to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.

Bump Stock Ban Retroactively Criminalizes Possession of Legally Acquired Products

The proposed ban on bump stocks not only applies to a wide, vague range of firearm accessories, as Christian Britschgi noted this morning. It also criminalizes mere possession of those accessories, making owners subject to fines and up to five years in prison, even if they acquired the newly prohibited items before the ban was enacted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Retroactively banning legally obtained accessories violates the ex post facto restriction of the Constitution.

Ex-Pentagon Advisor Reveals How CIA Killed Western Politicians During Cold War

“We assume that that the CIA was involved in Barschel’s death, and that the deat was in fact a murder,” Baab said. The authors’ evidence includes the fact that the doctor who first studied Barschel’s body “had himself turned out to be a CIA double agent. This explains why the first conclusion from the results of the autopsy turned out to be incorrect.” According to the journalist, new toxicological evidence shows that the German politician was in fact murdered.
