Pentagon chief: War with North Korea would be ‘catastrophic’ | TheHill

War with North Korea would be ‘catastrophic’: Mattis Autoplay: On | Off Defense Secretary James Mattis warned on Sunday that a war with North Korea would be “catastrophic,” and would place United States allies in the region at extreme risk. “The North Korean regime has hundreds of artillery cannons and rocket launchers within range of one of the most densely populated cities on earth, which is the capital of South Korea,” Mattis said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “This regime is a threat to the region, to Japan, to South Korea. And in the event of war, they would bring danger to China and to Russia as well,” he added. “But the bottom line is it would be a catastrophic war if this turns into a combat if we’re not able to resolve this situation through diplomatic means.”

Trump reportedly mulling major overhaul to White House staff | Fox News

President Trump is reportedly considering a major shakeup to his White House staff and bringing back top campaign strategists over his frustrations by what he sees as his team’s inability to contain the crisis involving alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Lawyers and public relations experts are being recruited, the Associated Press reported Sunday, as new revelations surface about Moscow’s interference and possible improper dealings with the Trump campaign and associates. The disclosures dogged Trump during his first trip abroad since taking office and threaten to overwhelm and stall the agenda for his young presidency.

Political Violence: GOP Blamed for Media Lies That Kill

It’s hard to know if it’s more delusion or deception, but the media are again blaming President Trump for violence, this time after a Republican congressional candidate got physical with a reporter. Of course, the media’s accusation is much like Planned Parenthood or the MS-13 gang blaming George Zimmerman for our nation’s diminishing respect for life. Fake-news outlet the Washington Post is a case in point, currently running an article titled “The GOP inherits what Trump has wrought.” The paper opines, “The angry forces that propelled President Trump’s rise are beginning to frame and define the rest of the Republican Party.” “When GOP House candidate Greg Gianforte assaulted a reporter who had attempted to ask him a question Wednesday night in Montana,” the Post continues, “many saw not an isolated outburst by an individual, but the obvious, violent result of Trump’s charge that journalists are ‘the enemy of the people.’ Nonetheless, Gianforte won Thursday’s special election to fill a safe Republican seat.”

Why Democrats want you to forget the Confederacy

Have you noticed the movement to remove statues, memorials, flags and markers that commemorate the historical reality of the Confederacy in America? Earlier this month, we saw another vivid example of this when New Orleans removed the last of three statues of Confederate heroes – Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and P.T. Beauregard. It’s happening in dozens of states – not just Southern. Some of these monuments have been around for nearly 150 years. What’s this new war on the Confederacy all about? I have a theory. I don’t think it explains the phenomenon in its entirety. But I definitely think it’s part of the explanation for the scorched-earth policy against American history, the attempt to erase any historical vestige of the most costly war in our history. First, you will notice that Democrats are nearly always at the forefront of this kind of activity. Why would that be? Could it be because they are

Top Five Media-Generated Non-Stories from Trump’s Foreign Trip – Breitbart

The media latched on to a few absurdly overblown stories to keep the bad vibes flowing during President Trump’s first overseas journey. Editorial judgment is apparently easy to suspend when the opportunity to hype an odd photo or curious video clip presents itself. The Orb: By far the most entertaining non-story was the photo of President Trump, King Salman of Saudi Arabia, and President Sisi of Egypt posing with their hands atop a mysterious glowing white sphere.
