North Korean Nuclear Threat “Top Priority” For Donald Trump

by | Jun 25, 2017 | Headline News | 98 comments

Do you LOVE America?



    The imminent nuclear threat from North Korea was addressed by CIA director Mike Pompeo during an interview with MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt which aired Saturday.  Pompeo said that the topic was “at the top” of President Donald Trump’s mind.

    Trump is concerned about North Korea’s nuclear capabilities daily.  The rogue nation has made many threats, and through tightening sanctions, have continued to test ballistic missiles and work toward obtaining a nuclear weapon. But Donald Trump is taking the threat of a nuclear-capable North Korea very seriously.

    Pompeo said he and Trump talk for almost an hour every day, and that “I hardly ever escape a day at the White House without the President asking me about North Korea and how it is that the United States is responding to that threat.”  Pompeo added, “For 20 years, America has whistled past the graveyard, hoping on hope, that North Korea would turn colors and become part of the Western civilization. There’s no evidence that that’s going to take place, absent a very real, very concrete set of policies that put pressure on the North Koreans to denuclearize. I think that’s what you see Secretary Tillerson trying to do around the world.” Pompeo was referring to the State Department’s continued efforts to curb North Korea’s nuclear program.

    “They are ever-closer to having the capacity to hold America at risk with a nuclear weapon,” Pompeo added.  Though the US and China have agreed on the urgency and goal of possible talks with North Korea, the topic of denuclearization remains completely off the table for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Under Kim, North Korea has rewritten its constitution to include nuclear weapons as a guarantor of its safety, and the threat of nuclear North Korea is growing.

    In the meantime, the dictator of North Korea is living in fear that South Korea is working with Donald Trump on a plan to take North Korea’s tyrant down.  And South Korean intelligence services claim that the coordination between the US and South Korean forces have made Kim “extremely nervous,” according to the Korea Herald. Apparently, Kim has been riding in his subordinates’ cars and making fewer public appearances.

    Trump is not the only person in the United States government taking a nuclear North Korea seriously. Although the Pentagon maintains that the US does not train for decapitation strikes of any kind, the threat from North Korea growing hotter every day.  Civilian casualties like Otto Warmbier may also signify that the US is preparing a quick strike option in case of an untenable provocation from the Kim regime.

          • You got plenty of dumb white guys there too…

            • Yep

            • Insider warning?

              Bankers warn (other bankers) that a global crash could arrive ‘with a vengeance’…

              From the annual report of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS)., sometimes known as “the central bank for central banks”.

              “A new financial crisis is brewing in the emerging economies and it could hit “with a vengeance”, an influential group of central bankers has warned.”

          • Interracial breeding, the browns and blacks injecting their DNA into our white women, is what’s destroying American culture as we know it.

            • BM, very sad to see happening, too.
              Definitely one of many American culture destroyers, and, so few see it.
              Ain’t multiculturalism great?

        • North Korea is going to be Trump’s “red line”.

          Only full on war will stop North Korea and Trump won’t do that.

          Because Trump is not willing to do total war, then North Korea will keep provoking and testing the nukes.

          • Kim Jung Un-stable may pull the trigger and Trump will get to enjoy fresh kimchi.

          • N Korea is not any threat to the US in anyway. They can barely get a rocket off a launch pad with it not blowing up. Like they are going to sail one over here? pffttt. Any rocket they did shoot off were like the Iraqi SCUDS type rockets. bad aim and rarely hit any target. They are Not a Nuclear threat. Its all a show, Phony war, to waste tax dollars for the banksters and MICM. Another Boogie Man to use for a punching bag.

            This is a total waste and exercise of Fraud waste and Abuse of Tax Dollars by our Military and Puppets, and energy and time harassing N Korea.

            Pack it up military, come on home and STFU. And polish the brass, and keep your powder dry. Do something positive in your F8cking lives for a change. Nation destroying is not the American Value System. Its hijacked ZIppo Zion Ists parasites agenda.

            • You haven’t paid much attention to the real news lately, have you?

              Among other things, NK was able to put a satellite in orbit back in 2012 and has made significant rocket advances since then, along with significant advancement in nuclear weapons that can be put on them.

              NK isn’t making rockets and nukes for the simple fun of it, they have every intention of using them against us and our allies and state that fact on a regular basis.

          • “Only full on war will stop North Korea and Trump won’t do that.”


            TRUMP will do that. He doesn’t want to do that, but eventually you can only kick the can down the road so far, whether you are talking about N Korea or the economy. After he has exhausted all possible alternatives, he will order a very well coordinated, Massive First Strike.

            You can take that to the bankers. 🙂

            • If USA finally pulls the trigger on NK, Trump will get blamed for the millions of South Koreans who die. It won’t really be his fault. NK should have been dealt with decades ago, and SK should have never allowed their capital and industrial hub to flourish so close to the DMZ. Seoul has been within artillery range of NK pretty much since hostilities ended in 1953.
              SK thought reunification would have happened on their terms a long time ago. Oops.

              • AS tragic and horrendous as the possible death of millions in S Korea AND Japan, it is highly likely that this would happen at a later date anyway if Kim remains in power; and the number of dead would be much, much higher as his capacity for war increases.

                A massive well coordinated First Strike by the USA soon, would mitigate those casualties. The time to nip Kim’s burgeoning capacity for war in the bud, is now. 🙂

            • Unless of course, Russia decides to destroy us first… the US is pushing, pushing, pushing Putin. You can only push someone so far and then the bully gets his nose busted. The US is asking for it!!

        • The youth are being radicalized towards National Socialism.

          This is not what I wanted.

          A door is being opened that cannot be shut.

          This is the end of America one way or the other.

          It will be chaos, confusion, and civil war.

          • Lets not forget the war on men BY 3RD GENERATION FEMINIST.

            Here is a word for you women it is call MGTOW.

            You bitches asked for it.

            • Yep, third generation war by the females!! Let it rip, women! Nope, we women didn’t ask for it– and you will pay, bastards!

          • That door was opened under Clinton, opened wider under Bush and Obama finally made it unclosable.

            The divisions in our country are irreconcilable, this will not end well and certainly not peaceably.

      2. Preppers often ask how they will survive the looting and marauding and I am thinking more like how are the looters and marauders going to survive trespassing on prepper’s property?

        • Gandhi, any scum who approach me, I already KNOW what will happen to them. As long as they avoid me, they’ll be fine.

          • DB, make sure that when it gets up close and personal, that you’ll without hesitation, draw your blade and feed it to them until they buckle. Just so you know I got faith in you.

            • Then you can throw them out on the railroad track with a rope around them the be snatched up like a mail bag.

            • Which Henckels Knife should I buy to bleed’em real quiet?

            • I’m certain with all the push for investigation of out elections that Trump has more to worry about is own skin than NK’s little fat fuck.

            • Po’d Patriot, my blade will be a weapon of LAST resort. As long as I still have guns and ammo, it’s BULLETS first.

        • I’ll have to loot a back-hoe to dig all the holes i will need for the looters.

          • Yep, then you will be in the hole with the rest of the looters. Catch 22?

        • It seems like the threads on this site quickly become a blow hard, chest pumping, red neck response to an article that actually has a real world topic. WTF does your response professing to protect your property have to do with the topic of this article? Nothing. You think North Koreans are going to come get you?

          “Looks like the Patriots are going to get to the Super Bowl this year.”…

          “Yeah well I’ll blow their damn heads off if they come in my yard.”

          Get a life.

          • Chest-pounders don’t seem to get that they probably won’t see frontal assaults on their “homestead”, but are more likely to be taken out by an assailant they never see.
            Could easily be some teenager with a .22, who pops them and then checks to see if Facebook came back up yet.

            • Yes, they will need Facebook to brag about the murder

          • LCB, if you would read the entire thread, you would’ve already noticed I made a few posts directly related to the subject matter. Pay better attention.

      3. Let’s face it, “Kim Jung Un-stable” has no interest in acting normal.

        • A “show of force” obviously doesn’t impress KJU.

      4. The NORKs and there headlong drive to acquire ICBMs should be the most important issue for this presidency. They are a clear and present danger!

        • Laeagle, if the neocons launch a pre-emptive strike on NK, it’s all over. The US will be seen as the aggressor. If porky makes the first move, then of course we should respond in an appropriate manner. there has to be another way to resolve this.

        • The democrats will never let Trump turn his attention to North Korea.

          Do you think America could come together for a major war like they did in WWII?

          absolutely not, the democrats will be the new 5th column.

      5. I don’t know whether or not Korea is a threat, but I damn sure know that Isreal is.


        • Give it a rest, very few buy your bs

          • Nailbanger:

            Isreal was behind the World Trade Center Attacks, Isreal attacked America’s Navy and Isreal is engaged in spying on America and Americans. Furthermore Isreal has hundreds of Nuclear bombs and when President Kennedy insisted that Isreal allow inspections of their Nuclear Facilities he gave Isreal further justification for eliminating him. So think what you want, the Israelies are no Angels.


            • By the way, 911 was an inside job not done by Jews.

              • 911 was an inside job, administered by the NEO CONS and executed by the Mossad; who recruited the terrorists, and arranged both the purchase, insurance, and the pre wiring for the demolition of these buildings.

                The evidence is available if you do the research. BTW the Mossad made a cool $900 billion for the job. 🙁

                • Then why did so many Feds play the stock market to make money off of collapsed airline stocks?

                  • Because the FEDS are part of the Deep State and the Deep State is populated by the Tribe. The Tribe is well connected to the NEO CONS, Bankers, and the Mossad.

                    It’s a vicious circle of elitism passing inside info to make a buck: or $900 million, before the profits from stock trading is tallied. 🙁

            • B from CA I understand why you are afraid of the Jews: you are afraid of smarter people.

              • Solid burn….

            • B of CA is 100% Correct. Some here are to f8cking blind to see it right in their faces. Too much wool pulled over their eyes looks like. For they not know, nor do their care,. go watch some cartoons and eat capt crunch. The scum suckers are behind the Gun Grab Scam. Bloomberg, Polosi, Schumer, they are all the same cloth. Their hatred for American Culture is disgusting. You don’t like America scumbags, then get the F8ck out Jackasses. And fly your Confederate Flags Proudly.

            • Some experience, i think it depends on variety and how badly damaged,,,? They may be fine if you pot them in a sterile mix to get them going again, use a bunch of superthrive and B12

        • Obammy is that you? – where you been? – damn Trump is letting the Jews run amok ….

          • good one

        • Keep it up B from CA, the truth hurts the traitor suckups.

      6. While the death of Otto Warmbier is tragic, we can’t let the death of one US civilian drive us into WW3. Even South Korea would agree on that. It’s THEIR country that is the most vulnerable in this whole situation. Cooler heads need to prevail on this. Let China deal with porky. They have their own reasons to see a more pro-China regime running NK. They still need that ‘buffer zone’ between them and the US/ROK. Eliminate NK’s nuclear and missile programs. That would be one less potential flashpoint for WW3.

        • Funny how NOBODY realized that Otto’s father was wearing an American Flag tie that was upside down.

          The stupid Daily Mail news site even commented that the father was “being patriotic” with the tie.

          Little do they know. I was surprised to see this because the Trump Administration went through great efforts to get the kid home.

      7. I’d bet everything that 99% of our nuclear bombs have been converted to neutron bombs. They don’t blow anything up they just fry the unprotected people’s brains . The iner cities would be targeted first. But they need the massive flash point to get started. Where’s that going to happen?

        • I saw that movie, Maxwell Smart is recalled to duty to help fight a villian who threatens to detonate a weapon that destroys clothing.

          IT was called “the nude bomb.”

          • Maxwell Smart is a weapon to destroy brain cells by using TV light flickering.

        • Hopefully Hollywood and LA.

      8. As an American that served, I owe nothing to any foreign nation that we protect for the interests of the worldwide-megacorporations, they owe us. Look, the USA can’t even take care of it’s own 330 million people, got 105 million depending upon monthly welfare from the remaining working taxpayers. USA should become isolationists, recall the military and solve our problems locally. USA should allow the people of other foreign nations to solve their own problems, let the citizens of these foreign nations spill their own blood fighting for their rights and freedoms. Instead, we allow their cowards asylum into the USA and full entitlements and our boys fight and die in foreign lands as USA blows trillions of dollars. USA HAS FAILED at being the playground cop, it’s failure has cost the lives of 1 million Americans since 1946 and several trillion dollars. Paleoconservatively Yours.

        • The Deep State decides when and where the flag goes up. Educate the patriots and their
          kids that they send off unknowingly to serve the selfish interests of the Deep State.

        • Bert

          “fighting for their rights and freedoms”

          “Freedom”, “Democracy”, “War On Terrorism” are all ostensible excuses for the use of US military forces. As USMC Major General and two time recipient of the Metal Of Honor Smedley Butler said, “I was a racketeer for capitalism, a bully boy for Wall Street”.

          • Yep, he was and so are every other USA vet. Hahaha suckers.

        • Amerika is bought by foreign corporations, thanks for serving them.

        • Amen!

      9. After a Jericho attack . How many truckers would take their load of food home? And how many foolish virgins would be trying to hijack loads? The police and sheriffs and government employees and Hospital employees and supermarket staff and all their family members are first in line to what gets through? Then the Federal government employees and the State law enforcement will go to war for their share? And they will stockpile for their future needs. Then the military comes to town to take anything they need . And they want to stockpile too. And what’s the only thing they would trade for? Paper money? Silver and gold ? Brass and lead? If your lucky?

        • Thievery, currently generally systemic in the financial sector will become the norm across all of society in time of crisis / shortage. It will follow the modified principal that those with the most power will steal the most. Nothing shows power better than operating under the color of law.

          • Yep, but the rich can afford to pay off politicians and make their scams legal.

          • “Nothing shows power better than operating under the colow of law.” Kevin2, I couldn’t have said that any better. More like the ‘false pretense’ of law.

      10. Top priority, huh? We’ll see how good the “planning” was when it kicks off.

        • Nameless, you mean the OTHER SIDE’S planning, don’t you? My top priority will be to protect my supplies from such people. I won’t have mercy on whoever tries to take anything from me. I don’t care who they are.

          • Talking about the governments war preparations my friend, not personal preps.

      11. Off topic but very important. what’s everyone’s take on the
        Alexapure pro water system? I carry a Sawyer in my bag.
        Been studying and it rates higher than Berkely and a lot cheaper.

        • Mmmm, never heard of them. Just review the reviews of them and others and make up your own mind. I’ve got sawyers and life straws and a (Royal Berkey for the home front). Redundancy certainly cannot be a bad thing for something you need to exist (clean potable water).

        • How was that important. Just stick your head in a stagnant pond, swish the pond scum away and drink like a man.

        • Citizen, I’ve never heard of alexapure but I do know about Sawyers. I’ve got 2 of their Water Filter Bottles with filters that can be maintained and never need replacing and also have the All-In-One. Can’t go wrong with a Sawyer.

          • D. B.
            With you on the Sawyer. I know how much you like your M1 Carbine.

            Just picked up about a month ago another M1 Carbine. 1St generation Universal, all military parts. Shoots like a champ. Only one ammo it doesn’t like a lot of Wolf Ammo. You have to clean it good after 50 round and I mean GOOD!.

            • I stay away from steel cased ammo now.

              I am an M-1 Carbine fan, but sadly, I had to advance with the times and get a few ar-15s.

              Neither the M-1 or ar-15 would handle the steel cased ammo.

              In the Ar-15 the steel cased ammo would lock in the chamber after about 30 rounds and the ejector pin would rip off the back of the casing.

              I think it is the lacquer on the casing that is causing the problem. After the gun heats up the lacquer would attach to the chamber wall.

            • Sarge, I’m with you on the wolf ammo. on my last trip to the BOL I shot up half-box of wolf ammo I had and also had problems. I had to give my M1 a GOOD cleaning after only 25 rounds. No more wolf ammo of any caliber for Braveheart ever again. Another brand of ammo you want to avoid is Winchester Super X, especially in .22LR. I’ve had feeding issues in my .22s with that brand. For .22LR I go with CCI and Aguilla when I can find it, but my favorite is CCI. Never had any trouble with either of those brands.

        • check out the Aqua Rain, probably have to go to their site.
          Read some reviews on amazon on the Berkey, then buy the Aqua Rain. Have had one for about 4 years now and if I recall, the 4 filters were good for about 60,000 gallons.

      12. Speaking of surviving nuclear war; the other day there was a discussion on the “Ruger 10-22 Takedown” rifle in stainless. Well afterward I shopped on line and found some goodies not available when I was tuning mine. So now the wife is annoyed, she’s like how much are you going to put into a $300 rifle? Heh!

        I talked about some upgrades anyone could do to make a 10-22 more accurate, reliable and last longer. While looking on EBay I found a kit that does pretty much everything I described, its “Raven Eye Custom” Ruger 10-22 T1″ tune up kit. Just search on that name. There’s a T1, T2 & T3 for stainless, titanium or blued steel parts respectively. The T1 does what I wanted, to make my rifle as immune to rust and corrosion as possible. My other goal with my upgrades was to make the rifle as reliable as possible, immune from misfeeds and stovepipe failures to feed.

        There are also kits from Volquartsen that are supposed to be the Cadillac of upgrades, though mine is a Takedown version and super accuracy is just not going to happen in a two part gun, so that’s just money down a rat hole. Mine is a prepper rifle, and for plinking fun at the range on a budget (it’s 22LR). For improved feeding reliability consider polishing the inside sliding surfaces of the receiver and the sliding surfaces of the bolt, this costs virtually nothing but a little elbow grease and some ultra fine sandpaper, polishing compound and a fine wet-stone.

        For those with standard 10-22’s, I saw one YouTube video that tested and the found the single most significant accuracy variable is how hard you torque the screw that holds the stock to the rifle! Check that out if you want tighter groups. A well tuned Ruger 10-22 is capable of firing a group with all hits literally touching at 50 yards on a calm day.

        In your prep ammo stock don’t forget to buy some 22LR pepper shot. It’s a great round for killing rats and squirrel.

        So anyway when the wife said something about buying a few tune up parts for my Ruger, I of course blamed it entirely on you folks ? Later!

        • The problem with long barreled 22s is you need subsonic ammo when you duct tape a plastic bottle. A short barreled 22 target pistol with a red dot the short barrel makes all 22 ammo Subsonic? You can’t make noise. You can give away your location. If they find out you have bullets and your location they will wait and try to ambush you. For road blocks and defensive positions fine . But when your sneaking out to get water at night . You need to be sneaky.

          • I’ve got a brick or two of Aguila 60 grain subsonic 22LR. The muzzle energy is pretty much the same as 22 LR mini mags, but the bullet mass is more like a .223. One criticism of Aguila ammo is the powder they use has a foul odor.

            It’s a nice quit round for plinking, but also has a great ballistic punch. I use for finding unusual ammo or good prices.

        • Your wife is right, stop wasting money. I have a Ruger takedown and it shoots fine as long as you use the iron sights mounted on the barrel assembly. But if you put a scope mounted on the receiver you will need to make sure the barrel is tight and do a minor re-zero anytime you reassemble.

        • yeah I was interested in the take down and posted about it a couple of days ago. I bought the standard stainless Mannlicher model and took off the wood stock and placed a folder on it. Would love to pick up the take down in stainless with the threaded barrel and will shortly.

          • Many thanks for the links, PTPO.

            • OK I bought just one maybe two more parts for my 10-22, I told the wife this is the absolute last one, but PO’d Patriot made me do it…….. I bought a Volquartsen extractor and extended magazine release. Turns out the factory Ruger extractor is a steel stamping and not hardened, they wear out and cause feed failures. The one coming is hardened tool steel, the old one will become a spare. And the extended magazine release just looks cool!

              I love fighting with the wife, because afterward comes the making up…… I dare her some days to spill milk! The end of the world is so much fun. These are great days to be alive.

      13. Well so far the NORK’s haven’t done anything to anyone in the world’s stage. The little fat boy talks trash but so do athletes in this country and others.
        We would be remiss to take the first step. Watch them, of course, and stop any BS if launched.
        We should do HALO drops full of pamphlets telling the people to join the rest of world, eat good food, drink a decent drink, either adult or just a good old Coke, get on the internet and see what the rest of the world is doing and how they currently fit in. Can we put a satellite above them with internet access?
        The best way to take them out is do the same thing the Deep State is doing here,,, open some eyes, create a feeling,, let them revolt internally.
        Of course what we drop in information would need to be monitored.

      14. Today, Sunday June 25 around 1:45 pm VAFB launched a rocket. Wondering if it’s another test to intercept an ICBM.

        Anyhow, FYI.

      15. The NK nuclear threat is a “top priority” for our Potus? I’ll believe it when I see it. Just like our citizens who are/were being held illegally in NK are a priority for our government – NOT!

        I can’t even get my Congressional inquiry to help me get the late signup penalty for Medicare Parts B & D removed…..can’t get the White House to respond, even though, with my poor health, it’s literally a matter of life and death?

        Are you freaking kidding me?

        Didn’t the U.S. just remove our assets from the Korean Peninsula?

        Didn’t the U.S. just issue a strongly worded statement – that’s IT – re. the murder of Otto Warmbier?

        Isn’t the era of strategic patience, which was supposed to end when Obama left DC – still ongoing?

        Lil’ Kim wants to nuke us. His missiles can reach Alaska and Hawaii. And don’t forget his satellitles and EMP weapons ON TOP OF his chemical and biological weapons stockpiles.

        So forgive me when I’m very skeptical when I read/hear claims that this threat is a priority.

        After all I’ve personally been through, and after all I witnessed in the world around us –

        I will believe it when I see it!

        • Yup, “never let a crisis go to waste”

        • Don’t know what your medical problems are, but massive doses of Vitamin C may help. Search You Tube for vitamin c you will not believe what you will find. 🙂

        • Diana,
          I agree, the national critical issues appear to be just distractions. We are now into 8 months of nothing but Russians hacked the election, but didn’t actually effect any votes or the election, but Trumps connected, and at fault, news coverage ……

          Sounds like you are caught in the crosshairs of the planned collapse of ObamaCare, while congress just obstructs the fixes. It’s got to suck, huge. There’s squat Trump can do to make congress act responsibly.

          Most days I think all my effort should be toward my children. Above all else their survival is more important than mine.

          A few years ago I had a mysterious health problem that nearly killed me. I can’t imagine facing a similar scenario with congress in a pissing match with a president they love to hate, fighting over healthcare like it was a poker chip, and being deathly ill.

          Will keep you in my prayers.

      16. I’ll believe the great Orange One has a priority greater than the stroking of his own ego when I see him make Ivanka and her hubbie Jared enlist in the Army. Folks, we’re being played. I feel so sorry for all us – including myself at times – when I think that for a moment we thought voting for “The Donald” was to herald in something better. Sure North Korea is a big big problem. As is a nuclear Iran or the Russians about having ‘enough’ of our b.s. in Eastern Europe and especially Crimea. Trump surrounds himself with the same banking cartels as all of his predecessors and any of you think things are going to change for the better? C’mon. Show an I.Q. more’n Pelosi or Maxine Waters on crack. This nuclear option gets to rolling and about the only thing that’ll get us all through is the ability to recognize truth from fiction. Including the thump-the-chest “ain’t nobody goin’ ta take ma stuff” crap I’ve read here. What is this? Some sort of ‘Gorillas in the Mist’? Ya’ll going to hold off all those bad-guys all on your lonesomes? Yeah, right. Let me know how that all works out for you when those same MS-13 boys and girls are dining on your limbs while you’re still alive. Time to get real. Form your alliances now. Numbers my friends. Strategy and planning. And last, hope for God’s sake that no nuclear exchange EVER occurs. For no one wins a nuclear war.

      17. Why are we even there? Let S. Korea take care of the problems in their own back yard. They have twice the population of NK, their economy is 35 times as large, and they are at least a generation ahead in technology. They have every advantage except one, they don’ t have the grit NK has, they don’t have the stomach for a fight, even if it is an unavoidable. For the most part the youth of SK have been inculcated to be passive. A lot of people don’t know that vast numbers of men in SK tried to evade or did evade fighting in the past Korean War, they would have no doubt been taken over without American and UN/NATO troops fighting there.
        A second disadvantage of SK is they will likely never attack first, it would be a defensive war on their part. Therefore the damage in SK would be indescribable; they know that and could acquiesce to avoid it. What is closer to the truth is that SK is basically counting on the US to do a lot of the dirty work and dying. That’s okay since TPTB see American men as disposable, there would be no qualms squandering them in a meat grinder.
        I despise communism and dictatorships, but I also hate being involved in every hotspot in the world. The number one priority by far is not a foreign problem, it is that we have at least a 20 trillion dollar federal deficit, state and local gov’t debt which is hundreds of billions in not trillions more. Throw in the trillions of under-funded pension plans across the country. Don’t forget the trillion plus dollar student loan debt, trillion plus dollar car loan debt, and trillion plus dollar credit card debt. Add the more than 100 + trillion dollar future unfounded liabilities like Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. As a nation we are bankrupt, we are insolvent, we no longer even have the ability or resources to pay on the debts let alone get involved in bullshit around the world. We all know these things, but what we must also realize is things are the way they are because there are individuals and groups that benefit from it. The will of the people is of no consequence.

      18. Bill Buffert retired career Army officer was absolutely correct when he said, “The only just war is one fought on your soil to defend your own soil.”

        Parents, think of the following when you hear anyone flippantly talking of nuking this country or nuking that country. Google ‘images victims Hiroshima’. Then act accordingly.
