It seems as if North Korea has expanded it's nuclear missile base. The sight was under construction in 2017 and has since been expanded, according to CNN.
National Security Adviser John Bolton says President Trump wants to hold another summit with Kim Jung Un because he has failed to live up to his part of the deal .
"They have not lived up to the commitments so far," Bolton said toThe Wall Street Journal.
"That's why I think the President thinks that another summit is likely to be productive."
CNN REPORTS -
"Satellite images show that the base remains active. Moreover, in the past year North Korea has significantly expanded a nearby facility that appears to be another missile base,"
"Whatever Kim says about his desire for denuclearization, North Korea continues to produce and deploy nuclear armed missiles." - Jeffrey Lewis of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.
I swear I feel like I am in the twighlight zone sometimes. Conservatives are so damn patriotic when there is a liberal in the White House but as soon as a Republican gets in the office, all that patriotism goes out of the window. Recently, Trump pretty much dismissed the fact that a Washington Post Journalist was murdered in a Saudi Embassy. He pretty much said who cares?
His excuse, Saudi is keeping the oil price down for Americans.
Okay, if this the game you are playing, than fine, no problem, play the oil game!
I'm just trying to find the outrage coming from the right-wingers.
Where is the patriotism?
If Obama had said he's not worried about a Washington Post Journalist that was murdered by the Saudi Government, I swear Republicans would be calling him a traitor and a Muslim sympathizer.
I can see them trying to make a connection to Obama and Saudi. Hell they may have even said he was born in Saudi. They are stupid enough to believe that.
Funny , Trump has been helped out twice by a ultra wealthy Saudi Prince when his businesses were struggling. This information comes via The New Yorker in a 2016 article after Trump got into a heated battle with Fox News affiliate Megyn Kelly.
Trump would tweet out a fake photo of Kelly and Saudi Prince Al-Waleed.
Prince Al-Waleed would fire back at Trump with his own message.
“Trump:You base your statements on photo-shopped pics? I bailed you out twice;a 3rd time,maybe?” Prince Al-Waleed
You would think people would naturally call this Orange faced clown out for potentially being under extortion. Nope, not a word and never mentioned by the right-winged, flag hugging, patriots that wanted to see Obama's birth certificate and accused him of being a secret agent of the Muslim terrorist regime.
A federal judge ruled in favor of CNN and reporter Jim Acosta in a dispute with President Trump. The judge ordered the White House to temporarily restore the press credentials that the Trump administration had taken away from Jim Acosta last week.
The heated exchange between Acosta and Trump made headlines, bringing into question the media’s ability to question the President of the United States.
On Tuesday, CNN sued President Trump and other White House officials for revoking his press credentials.
On Friday, November 16, Judge Timothy J Kelly, granted CNN’s motion for a temporary restraining order that will prevent the administration from keeping Acosta off White House grounds.
The ruling that Judge Kelly handed down, gives Acosta the ability to enter White House grounds immediately with a possible trial to come in the future.
Last week Jim Acosta had his White credentials revoked. A rumored doctored video was released by Sarah Sander, who tweeted out a different version of the incident that took place between Jim Acosta and the White Staff member that rushed over to snatch the microphone out of his hand after Acosta asked Trump a question that Trump did not like.
Of course, Republicans tried to make it seem as if Acosta assaulted the female White House employee.
As of today, CNN has filed a suit against Trump for wrongfully taking away Acosta’s credentials. It seems like CNN has a good case against Trump because even a Fox News adviser has stated that Trump will like lose this suit in court.
The only justifiable way Trump can take away Acosta’s White House pass is if Acosta attacked someone or put someone in danger. Jim Acosta did not harm anyone nor did he put any White House staff members in danger.
Trump has a real problem with handling people who are not in favor of him and ask him tough questions. However, tough questions do not qualify as a reason to revoke someone’s press pass.
So it seems as if he Trump administration is so focused on illegal immigrants coming by way of caravan that they are not seeing the nor do they care they care to see, the cyber threat that Russian hackers are pose to the entire country.
A report from www.thehill.com details how a Russian enterprise called Project Lakhta is the real invasion that the U.S should be worried about. DOJ prosecutors are conducting a special investigation into the Russian enterprise.
The complaint, filed against a Russian woman named Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, reveals documents that tie her to Project Lakhta.
Khusyaynova is alleged to be the chief accountant in Project Lakhta’s finance department.
Project Lakhta has no doubt been able to influence and exploit American issues that cause division such as the NFL kneeling controversy for an example.
Project Lakhta uses racism as weapon to divide the country.
Racism isn’t the only thing Project Lakhta uses, gun control another hot-button topic in the U.S with a number of random shootings and conservatives paranoia of Liberals coming to confiscate their guns, the only Amendment that matters to conservatives these days is the 2nd Amendment. Lakhta has successfully helped fan the flames of the fires that cause division in America. You can only imagine what other enterprises are out there with their bots on twitter, facebook, youtube etc.
In no way do I support The Proud Boys but damn, freedom of speech is under attack in America. I would never take away a person’s right to freedom of speech. Facebook has is making it their personal business to take away the freedom of speech. They already put a ban on the right-wing nutjob, “Alex Jones”. Now they are moving to ban The Proud Boys and this will likely continue to give the right the impression they are the only ones being attacked by mainstream media and social media.
This organization has ties to white supremacist groups and has recently been involved in a fight against liberals in Manhattan, NY.
The Proud Boys, founded by provocateur and Vice founder Gavin McInnes, mainly relies on Facebook as its primary recruitment tool.
“Our team continues to study trends in organized hate and hate speech and works with partners to better understand hate organizations as they evolve. We ban these organizations and individuals from our platforms and also remove all praise and support when we become aware of it. We will continue to review content, Pages, and people that violate our policies, take action against hate speech and hate organizations to help keep our community safe.”
Per CNBC- A Russian woman who works for an oligarch close to Russian President Vladamir Putin has been charged with attempting to meddle in the 2018 midterm election.
The charges, filed Friday in the Eastern District of Virginia, accuse Elena A. Khusyaynova of St. Petersburg
of trying to - “create and amplify divisive social media and political content.”
Khusyaynova used social media to create thousands of fake accounts and emails to attack certain politicians such as:
John McCain, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, and former President Barack Obama. Notice that these names are not exactly on President Trump’s friend’s list. This information is coming just a day after former VP. Biden told the Democrats not to impeach Trump and to allow the full report to come out.
This is just the latest in the Russian meddling scandal that was fueled by now President Trump, who asked Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton’s email account and leak the 30,000 deleted emails to the public.
So finally we may get to see what all of the fuss about. Mueller is set to release key findings in the Russia probe.
Bloomberg News reported early Wednesday that Mueller has been under pressure to either bring more indictments or wrap it up.
This is great in so many ways. Most importantly, we can find out if this was all for naught. We can move on and Im sure there is something in this investigation that will make headlines.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is hoping that Democrats don’t attempt to impeach President Trump, at least not until after the midterms and more information comes out.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Biden told host Norah O’Donnell that he doesn’t think “there’s a basis for doing that right now,” saying he hopes Democrats don’t initiate impeachment proceedings. Biden called on Democrats to wait until Special Counsel Mueller concludes his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying, “I think we should wait until the report comes out.”
This is smart advice being dished out about by former VP Biden to the Democratic party. Attempting to impeach Trump is not as easy as some would love to think. The information that is about to come out should help the Democrats build a case for impeachment.
If they shoot their shot too soon, they might as well prepare for the backlash.
Oh, Kanye met with Trump again. He didnt sound crazy this time around.
This spells trouble for Democrats.
Kanye is causing Black people to take a second look at the Republican party and even worse for Liberals, he is causing Black people to take a second look at the Democratic party.
I read several online comments with mixed reactions.
The one thing I noticed is that more and more Black people are siding with Kanye.
Of course, the liberal media is trying to downplay this but I predicted this a long time ago in an old Morrow World Post blog that was written. I asked the question, can Kanye win over Blacks for Trump? I called it the Kanye Effect.
Now I’m getting the answer to the question and the answer is "yes he can.”
So the Black community is tripping over Kanye going to meet Trump.
I don't agree with a lot of the things Trump says and I question his policies all the time but I cant help wonder why are people such as TI and Ebro so mad at Kanye. Online, I see people calling him Koonye. I dont think all of that is necessary.
Kanye went to the White House to talk about issues that concern him and should be a concern to all of us. I'm not a Trump supporter but how can I get mad at someone for going to talk to the man that can have a direct impact on a community, especially when it involves a city like Chicago.
A lot of people criticized the way Kanye spoke at the White House and said he sounds like a madman or somebody who is mentally ill. Just because we don't like the messenger, it doesn't mean we should kill the message.
It's funny that we forget that recently Kim Kardashian asked for a pardon for a Grandmother with a dam near life sentence. That pardon was granted.
Meeting with Trump is not going to solve everything but it can have an impact that can bridge the gap and get the ball rolling in the right direction.
The U.S has a major opioid epidemic on it's hands. The years of dumping drugs in the Black neighborhoods was just a precursor to what we see today. It has been proven the U.S Government has poured drugs into poor Black communities. Now the drugs are really hitting the White communities hard. Not crack cocaine but heroin. Over the counter drugs, opioids have become the new drug of choice in America.
Except there is nothing new about it.
So what has changed ?
Answer: The news coverage.
Why is the media all of a sudden so fixed talking about the opioid epidemic which has been in existance in the US for at least 30 years ?
Yep, believe it or not the U.S is blaming the opioid and heroin epidemic on Mexico.
Several reports from multiple sources and news blogs have reported that the Mexican cartels are responsible and that the drugs are being funneled into the U.S by the Mexican cartels.
Here's the truth, in 2015 the Tennessee government closed 308 pain clinics in one day. This is according to www.kevinmd.com.
Closing the clinics left 120,000 patients without treatment, or proper opioids thus creating the need for those patients to go to the black market.
This is just an example of how this so-called "New" epidemic really took off.
But leave it up to the U.S to blame Mexico.
WISCONSIN POLITICIAN RACIALLY PROFILED
So, this not new but it is news. Sheila Stubbs, a Wisconsin politician, tried to knock on doors in a majority White neighborhood. Big mistake. We all know what happened next right? Yep, you guessed it, a nosey woman called the police and said that Stubbs looked suspicious.
Oh but it gets better. She said that she thought that her 71 year mother and 8 year daughter looked like they were looking to purchase drugs. I’m not lying, this really happened.
President Trump had a few choice words for Jeff Sessions in what was a major twitter rant. He accused Sessions of hurting the Republicans midterm election chances of victory.
“Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department,” Trump tweeted. “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.....” - President Trump
According to FOX News Trump is referring to the investigations into GOP Reps , Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of New York. Hunter was indicted for illegally converting campaign money for personal expenses and Collins was indictedfor insider-trading.
It has been a long time coming but now even the conservatives see the end of the Trump administration. Roger Stone, a long time Trump supporter, has recently stated that Donald Trump Jr is will be indicted because he lied to the FBI.
One of my favorite talk show hosts David Pakman of the "David Pakman Show" gave a very well thought out break down of why Roger Stone made such a bold statement about Trump Jr.
Is this Roger Stone's way of trying to get Trump to get rid of Robert Mueller now so he can save his own ass ?

Trump Tariffs against China hurt some his most loyal supporters. the American farmers.
Now he has a solution to fix the problem. The Trump administration announced Tuesday that it will provide $12 Billion dollars in emergency relief. This money is to ease the pain a little while Trump continues his not so popular trade war. This not going well with all farmers. Some are asking that he does more than just give a quick fix or a pay out. They want him to fix the market for long term results.
The Trump administration stated that this is a temporary term.
" This is a short term solution that will give President Trump and his administration time to work on long term trade deals," said Agriculture Department Secretary Sonny Perdue.
This could have a dramatic effect on the 2020 election. It is no secret that in 2016, Trump gained most of his support from the South and the mid west. Farmers are more likely to be found in those regions.
Now that he has sort of disappointed them, it will be interesting to see if they stand behind them in 2020.
It's funny, the irony of it all is just too much.
The fact that Trump won the 2016 election because of certain people wanted to get rid of illegal immigrants, who were supposedly stealing Americans jobs. Now there is a cry for help from the farmers of America, that at one point used undocumented workers for cheap labor. Yes, these idiots forgot that the same people that they want out of their country, are the same people that they pay less than minimum wage to work on their farms. Oh, this is just getting weird. So now that Trump has shown he is actually gonna get tough on illegal immigrants and that he is breaking up families, a lot of undocumented workers are running scared. They are quitting their farm jobs and leaving. That means the farmers have fewer workers. Hmmm, that would also mean they will have to pay more for new
workers. I guess you can say, they are reaping what they sowed.
Baltimore- Two Baltimore detectives have been sentenced to seven years in prison. Detectives Hendrix and Ward were apart of the GUN TRACE TASK FORCE, where they joined other officers who were committing robberies for a number of years.
Hendrix and Ward apologized for the actions on Friday.
"I know my actions," said Ward, pausing to wipe away tears, "made the trust issues with the citizens even further than they were before."
"We would target large groups of males," Hendrix testified earlier this year, speaking about the task force's street tactics. "The understanding was the more people, you know, the more likely you are to run into someone who actually has something illegal on their person."
It looks as if they have been giving a shorter sentencing than what the guidelines called for. Instead of receiving 11 to 14 years, the two were given 7 years in prison which is much different than what Thomas Allers and Sgt. Jenkins received which was 15 years.
The reason for the difference in the sentencing is due to the fact that Allers and Jenkins were supervisors, so the government sought and obtained much more prison time for them. Another key factor in the different sentencing is that the Ward and Hendrix were not involved in any robberies before joining the Task Force with Sgt. Jenkins and being seen as two officers that were in a complicated situation in which they had succumbed to peer pressure.
This is gonna sound crazy. Just think about the way Trump just set free this woman who was supposed to be serving life behind bars. For all of the crazy things that Trump says, he has demonstrated that he has some good qualities as well. If he continues to make moves like this, Trump just may win over more Black people than anybody expected by the next election, just in time to win again.
If he can stay off of twitter and stop harassing NFL players that are protesting the injustices that are happening in America, he would really be able to turn the page on Democrats and put them in an awkward position. It is already being said that Trump has gained 12 points from the Black community due to his friendship with Kanye West.
I'm not saying he will win over all of Black America, that would be literally impossible. What I am saying is this, in politics, you have to learn to play the numbers game. If Trump won the 2016 election with no support from the Black and Latino communities than we can imagine what would happen if won over 12 percent more than before. As crazy as it sounds, it just may happen.
