WaPo: American Military Not Preparing for War in Spite of Trump’s Harsh Words

Like I’ve been saying, Trump is playing good cop, bad cop, with him as the tough talking bad cop, and Nikki Haley and Rex Tillerson playing as the nice cops.

What’s new here is that the little fat boy from Nork is also portrayed by WaPo as a game player.

This analysis is better than most for the simple reason that the nutjob left is portraying Kim as being more rational and responsible than Trump. This is the same Kim that threatened to turn the USA into ashes just a couple of days ago.

To repeat my own theory briefly, I believe this whole thing is a big act, orchestrated by the (((Deep State))) to get the war machine going and stave off an impending economic collapse in America. But for purposes of trying to fit the pieces of the puzzle together, stories like this one are valuable.

The U.S. military does not appear to be moving toward a wartime footing with North Korea despite President Trump’s repeated threats this week of military action against Pyongyang, with few if any additional military forces moving into the region and the Pentagon chief emphasizing diplomacy over bloodshed.

The military posture has effectively remained the same even as Trump said Friday that he hopes North Korean officials “fully understand the gravity of what I said” and that “those words are very, very easy to understand.”

But it appears that Trump is still waging a rhetorical war rather preparing to launch a new one.

Among the signals that a major U.S. operation is not imminent is a trip just underway by Marine Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a small cadre of his staff. He arrived Friday in Hawaii with plans to visit Japan, South Korea and China, all of which would be in peril if a war between North Korea and the United States explodes.

The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and its accompanying flotilla of destroyers and guided-missile cruisers also returned to port Wednesday in Yokosuka, Japan, the Navy announced. The ships and the thousands of U.S. service members aboard spent three months patrolling the region and could have stayed at sea off the coast of the Korean Peninsula if the Pentagon was preparing for near-term conflict.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also have repeatedly sought to reduce tensions. Mattis, asked Thursday about Trump’s comments and what the death toll could look like in a nuclear confrontation, said that it was his job “to have military options should they be needed” but that he thought a diplomatic effort led by Tillerson and Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was gaining traction and should remain at the center of U.S. policy.

“I want to stay right there right now,” said Mattis, who commanded troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Marine general before retiring. “The tragedy of war is well enough known. It doesn’t need another characterization beyond the fact that it would be catastrophic.”

Despite North Korea’s colorful and threatening rhetorical broadsides, there also are few signs that the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, is spoiling for a fight that could lead to his ouster, and there has been no evacuation of American citizens from South Korea announced, said Michael C. Horowitz, a political-science professor and author at the University of Pennsylvania who studies military conflict.

“The U.S. is pre-positioned to respond to North Korean aggression on the peninsula all the time,” Horowitz said. “But what we are not seeing yet are true naval movements, family movements and troop movements that would suggest that the military is preparing for imminent conflict.”

The Pentagon has nearly 30,000 troops in South Korea to assist the government there in beating back any North Korean attack and has kept at least 28,500 deployed there each year since an armistice agreement put a halt to fighting in the Korean War in 1953. They would almost certainly be the first into the fight if North Korea decided to launch an attack, and there is no indication that their operations have significantly changed.

Patrick Cronin, the senior director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the Center for a New American Security, said that despite Trump’s rhetoric, he doesn’t see a major shift in U.S. policy toward North Korea. The plan still appears to be to pressure Pyongyang to stop its nuclear weapons development and be prepared to respond overwhelmingly if they strike, Cronin said.

If the intel is to be believed, the North has been working on nukes and missiles for decades. There’s no good reason to expect the country to stop unless there was a regime change, which China clearly does not want.

Candidate Trump talked a lot about winning during the campaign. In this case, the world may have to accept a draw.

NKorea Says Seriously Considering Plan to Strike Guam

You threaten us, then we threaten you. Repeat over and over.

In response to President Trump’s promise of “fire and fury” aimed at North Korea, the Norks have promised to strike the American territory of Guam.

Newsmax

North Korea said on Wednesday it is “carefully examining” a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with “fire and fury”.

A spokesman for the Korean People’s Army, in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency, said the strike plan will be “put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment” once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision.

In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the United States showed signs of provocation.

Trump warns North Korea will see ‘fire and fury’ if nuclear threats continue

There’s a fine line between going down in history as an appeaser like Neville Chamberlain (who probably got a bad rap from historians) and a warmonger like Winston Churchill or the evil John McCain.

President Donald Trump’s blustery style so far has not been marked by any major military action. His “fire and fury” words are making headlines around the globe, but his less inflamatory rhetoric suggests he’s willing to take a peaceful, cooperative approach with China and Russia as partners in reining in the little fat boy dictator of the North.

If peace is maintained, it will show that Trump is his own best propagandist.

By The Washington Post
President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a stern warning to North Korea, saying that if its threats to the United States continue, the outcast nation will be “met with the fire and the fury like the world has never seen.”

Trump’s comments came as North Korea spurned a new round of sanctions approved by the United Nations Security Council and pledged to continue to press forward with development of nuclear weapons that could reach the U.S. mainland.

Appearing at an event at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, where Trump is on a 17-day “working vacation,” he said that “North Korea best not make any more threats of the United States.”

“They will be met with the fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” Trump said.

The Washington Post on Tuesday reported that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, according to a confidential assessment by U.S. intelligence officials.

Trump’s warning on Tuesday further raises the stakes for the U.S. president and other world leaders, who face limited options in dealing with North Korea’s aggression.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump suggested on Twitter progress is being made with the cooperation of China and Russia, both of which supported the Security Council resolution offered by the United States over the weekend.

“After many years of failure, countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea,” Trump said. “We must be tough & decisive!”

Trump also used Twitter to amplify a Fox News report, based on anonymous sources, that U.S. spy satellites had detected North Korea loading two cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country’s coast in recent days.

Without adding any comment of his own, Trump, who regularly decries leaks to the media, retweeted to his more than 35 million followers a link to the day-old story, which was featured Tuesday morning on “Fox & Friends,” a program on the Fox News network.

A White House spokesman did not respond to a question about whether Trump’s retweet amounted to a confirmation of Fox’s story, which was attributed to unnamed “U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region.”

Trump’s decision to disseminate the report came amid a larger push by the White House to call attention to the president’s efforts to contain North Korea’s military ambitions, including an unanimous vote by the United Nations Security Council over the weekend on a U.S.-sponsored resolution imposing tougher sanctions.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, according a confidential assessment by U.S. intelligence officials.

The report by Fox highlighted a far less significant threat than those posed than the long-range missiles, known as ICBMS, that have been central to escalating tensions in the region.

One intelligence official said that the report itself was insignificant and not a sign that North Korea was preparing to test a missile or make any other provocation. However, the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, was chagrined that Trump would retweet a report about “something unimportant” that nonetheless “reveals something about our surveillance capabilities.”

Trump, who receives daily intelligence briefings, including while on his current 17-day “working vacation” in Bedminster, would presumably be in a position to know whether U.S. intelligence officials have reason to believe Kim Jong Un’s regime in fact did load cruise missiles onto a patrol boat recently.

Asked about the report Tuesday morning on Fox, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said she couldn’t comment.

“I can’t talk about anything that’s classified, and if it’s in the newspaper, that’s a shame,” Haley said. “It’s incredibly dangerous when things go out to the press like that.”

There’s so much background that fake news leaves out of the story that Twitter and other alt sources are needed to put the story in its proper perspective.

Over 80 Percent of Sweden’s Child Refugees Tested to be Over 18

SOME OF SWEDEN’S CHILD MIGRANTS.

The Local Sweden

The latest results of tests on asylum seekers in Sweden subjected to a new method of medically assessing their age show that over 80 percent tested were judged to be older than 18, but not everyone has faith in their accuracy.

Sweden’s national Forensic Medicine Agency (Rättsmedicinalverket) started carrying out the tests earlier year. They are designed to make age assessment during the asylum process more accurate after the Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) was criticized for failings in assessing the correct age of some refugees claiming to be underage.

To date Migrationsverket has sent 6,880 cases to be tested, and the Forensic Medicine Agency has now released the results of a total of 2,481 tests from the period between mid March until July 31st, 2017.

Eighty percent (2002) were judged to be 18 or over, while in a further 25 cases the Forensic Medicine Agency judged that the subject was “possibly 18 or over”.

In 432 cases the conclusion was that the person is “possibly under 18”. The tests are only carried out in cases where the person’s age is in question.

According to Johan Göransson from the Forensic Medicine Agency, the results are consistent with previous months.

“We see no big difference in the statistics from previous months, the numbers are quite consistent,” he told The Local.

The high proportion of cases judged to be over 18 does not necessarily mean that the asylum seeker lied about their age. In May, the agency released the results of 581 tests and said that there were 442 instances that “suggest the person examined is 18 years or older”.

When newspaper Svenska Dagbladet investigated the 581 results released however it found that in 243 of the cases the person had openly stated that they turn 18 this year.

The method of medical age assessment, which consists of taking X-rays of wisdom teeth and MRI scans of knee joints, then having dentists and radiologists analyse them, has also been criticised in some quarters.

One sceptic is Karolinska Institute endocrinologist Claude Marcus, whose work includes assessing the biological maturity of people to see if they went through puberty earlier or later than usual.

“I’ve had reason to think about this, and I don’t think the type of measurement being used should be. Judging biological age in this way is very uncertain. If we can’t say it for sure we shouldn’t pretend that we can,” he told newspaper Metro.

The Forensic Medicine Agency’s Göransson defended the accuracy of the tests however:

“In general you can say that the risk of inaccurately judging a child to be an adult is small. The biggest risk is if the person is just under 18, in which case it’s around 10 percent”.

Study Finds Huge Drop in Sperm Count Among Western Men, Sparking Fears of Human Extinction

A public health study out of Israel has gotten widespread media attention over the last 24 hours.

The sperm count of “Western” men, which I think it’s reasonable to interpret as meaning white men with European ancestors, has been plunging. The decrease in sperm counts is so bad that the Jewish scientists warn that humans could go extinct.

The sperm counts of nonwhite men have not been dropping, so it’s hard to see how humans will go extinct. Unless you believe that only whites are human.

Excerpt from the Daily Mail

Humans could face extinction if sperm counts continue to drop as fast as they have done in the last four decades in Western countries, a study warns.

Researchers claim the Western lifestyle has more than halved the sperm count of men in the US, Europe and Australia since the 1970s in a new study published by Human Reproduction Update.

Sperm count is the best measure of male fertility, and lead author Dr Hagai Levine said the findings are an ‘urgent wake-up call’ to investigate lifestyle factors, chemicals and environment that could cause the human species to go extinct.

‘If we do not make a drastic change to how we live and the chemicals we are exposed to I am worried about the future,’ he told Daily Mail Online.

‘I think the data serves as a wake up call, because I am personally worried about that [human extinction] if we do not address current environmental issues.’

Researchers at Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai looked at 185 studies collected between 1973 and 2011 regarding sperm count and concentration in men from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

They found 59.3 percent average decline in total sperm count and a 52.4 percent average decline in sperm concentration among these men.
The men researched in those studies were not chosen for the studies based on their fertility status.

In contrast, there was no significant decline in South America, Asia and Africa, though far fewer studies have been conducted in those areas.

The research team then restricted the studies with a sample collection between 1996 and 2011, and found the slope to be equally steep and significant, indicating that the rate of decline is not decreasing.

This study did not examine causes of the decline, but it has previously been linked to environmental and lifestyle factors, such as exposure to chemicals and increased rates of obesity in Western countries.

‘Given the importance of sperm counts for male fertility and human health, this study is an urgent wake-up call for researchers and health authorities around the world to investigate the causes of the sharp ongoing drop in sperm count, with the goal of prevention,’ said Dr Levine.

Dr Levine also said the findings have public health implications because it demonstrates the proportion of men who are infertile are increasing.

Additionally, recent studies have found that reduced sperm count is related to increased morbidity and mortality, meaning the ongoing decline points to serious risks to male fertility and male health.

This vague attribution of smaller sperm counts to environmental factors is surely not a satisfying explanation. Specifically, let’s go into tinfoil hat territory and ask if there is any group that has promised to reduce the white population?

It turns out that there is such a (((group,))) which regular readers know all about.

White genocide is real. The means to accomplish white genocide via a reduction in sperm might include through food additives, chemtrails, and vaccines.

Now that we know for sure that there’s a problem affecting white men, the next step is to engage in academic studies that can identify the source.

If I were cleverly trying to kill off the white race I might invent something called fast food and load it up with harmful chemicals. I’m not sure, but I might also hook men on porn and have them masturbate their way to infertility.

Since white women are being exposed to the same things as white men, we should ask if white women are also becoming infertile.

Finally, I wonder if the Indians know how to fix the problem.

Elite Women Only Sex Club Springs Up Catering to Jaded Straight Women Seeking Sexual Adventures

INSIDE THE SKIRT CLUB.

Woman writer Wednesday Martin seems a bit confused, both approving and disapproving at the same time of sex parties that exclude men.

She attended a New York party and a more casual Los Angeles party. This excerpt describes the New York party.

The key concept created by the (((intellectuals))) to justify the hedonism represented by the Skirt Club is “sexual fluidity,” which I take to mean that women can change their sexual attraction on a dime, desiring sex with a male in one instant and with a woman in the next instant.

Somewhere out there are the (((destroyers of the family))) enjoying the sales job that this high-glamour psyop provides. Ironically, if you scroll down the home page by five or six posts from this one, there’s Stefan Molyneaux and Dennis Prager discussing the “morality crisis” on youtube. Their position is that there can be no morality without God. I think God is nowhere to be found at the Skirt Club.

For $180 admission, from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m, women who have been vetted drink champagne, hear from a sex positive speaker or performer and go at it. No men allowed.

At the New York party, held May 20 in a downtown duplex with a massive fireplace, a fabulous skyline view, and a terrace featuring a huge hot tub, the homeowner-hostess, a buff dirty blonde with butterfly temporary tattoos on her bottom, wore nothing but a harness that exposed her nipples and a G-string. A practitioner of the ancient Japanese art of bondage called shibari gave a demonstration as women who had traveled from Palm Beach, Florida, New Jersey, Brooklyn, and the Upper East and Upper West sides got their cocktail on and listened attentively. Attendees were a fit, diverse crowd of 50 women in law, finance, journalism, medicine, social work and sex therapy. There was some standard getting-to-know-you awkwardness. But as a fashion designer in leather leggings explained: “There’s none of the stress about what might happen. Everyone is here because she wants to have sex.” New Yorkers do love to save time. (Although I did hear later that these events can sometimes lead to more: One woman met her girlfriend here, another invited a fellow attendee to a dinner party at her house.)

SKIRT CLUB MEMBERS POSE FOR A LESBIAN LAY.

After a game of body shots (no food at these shindigs!), the crowd thinned. Research revealed that in one bedroom, eight bodies writhed in every congress imaginable. There was grinding, going-down-on, spanking, hair pulling and ecstasy, with more of the same to be found in the other bedroom. I had never seen human females go at it like this — uninhibited, unapologetic and uncensored — and it made me want to get to my husband quickly. As I gathered my things and headed to the door, a too-young-for-me blonde told me she found me captivating. It was like a prom dreamed up by Djuna Barnes and Candida Royalle, and I fled.

Our intrepid writer was ready to run home to hubby? Well, that’s a good sign I guess. The problem may lie in the old adage “What has been seen cannot be unseen.”

Hedonism sings a sweet siren song, luring the mind back to what the lizard brain perceives as satisfying. After all, if you recognize the Skirt Club as a psyop, the game ends not just with a lesbian lay with the breakup of a family throughout an American society made up of practicing hedonists.

SKIRT CLUB FOUNDER GENEVIEVE LEJEUNE.

There is something askew about wanting to watch other people have sex.

In the video below the founder explains how glamorous and empowering anonymous lesbian lsex is. As P.T. Barnum noted, there’s a sucker born every minute.

Over 80,000 evacuated from German ‘Rock am Ring’ festival over ‘terrorist threat’

Germany must now live in constant fear because of one woman and her hare-brained, evil idea that a multicultural Germany can exist.

It can’t. Germany will have to face the fact that it’s becoming a nonwhite, third world, Muslim ruled hell hole.

RT

Up to 87,000 festivalgoers have evacuated from Rock am Ring music festival held near Nürburg, Germany, after police received information of a “concrete” terrorist threat.
Together with a police officer, festival organizer Marek Lieberberg took to the main stage at around 9pm to ask fans to make their way towards the exit. In a statement on Facebook, the festival’s organizers urged all those attending to leave the site in a “calm and controlled manner” after being warned of a “terrorist threat.”

“We hope that the festival will continue tomorrow. Thank you for your cooperation,” the statement added.

n a separate statement, local police said that “investigations are currently under way” regarding “concrete indications, which cannot exclude a possible terrorist threat.” In the wake of a recent attack at a music concert in Manchester, all precautions are being taken for the event, with 1,200 police officers already deployed at the scene.

The Rock am Ring festival, which was due to run until Sunday, is an annual event held at the Nürburgring arena near the historic city of Nürburg focused mainly on rock and metal music. This year’s line-up was to feature 85 different bands over four stages, including Rammstein and System Of A Down.

In the past the biggest danger to fan’s health and lives was the weather – over 70 people were injured and 42 sent to hospital after the event was hit by lightening strikes last year. None of the injuries, however, were life-threatening. Last year Germany experienced its first major Islamist terrorist attack, when Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist Anis Amri deliberately drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 civilians.

I’m sure that Frau Merkel views the evacuation as a mere inconvenience and a small price to pay for Islamic cultural enrichment. She has bigger things to worry about anyway now that President Trump has quashed American participation in the Paris Climate Agreement.

Go Merkel! Save the planet while Germany explodes.
