China and North Korea aren’t the Only Ones with Big Scary Missiles

from Zero Hedge:

US Military Tests ICBM Hours After Beijing Parades Missiles Through Tiananmen Square

Mere hours after the latest missile test by North Korea and Beijing’s parading of its ICBM arsenal through Tiananmen Square during the 70th anniversary celebration of Communist Party rule, the US military decided to carry out a missile test of its own on Wednesday, testing an unarmed Minuteman III ICBM.

The Minuteman was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:13 am Pacific Time. The missile, which was equipped with a ‘reentry vehicle’, traveled 6,750 kilometers across the Pacific Ocean before touching down on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command.

A photo of the test shows the missile in a brilliant purple hue.

Adoption Shouldn’t be this Difficult

But it can be, thanks to our federal government.

The Stasi Family

Of all the federal government departments and agencies, one of the most useless, save for maybe the first 30 or years of its existence, is the Department of State. The State Department is supposed to be the foreign policy adviser to the President, and employs over 15,000 people. Around 8,000 or so are “diplomats,” most of whom couldn’t negotiate themselves out of a wet paper bag. And it seems anyone can be Secretary of State – eg.: Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Madeline Albright.

They are also in charge of issuing visas, and as we’ve witnessed by the amount of terrorists and other ne’er-do-wells they’ve allowed in, they’ve done a real bang up job.

It seems the only time they adhere to strict visa policy, is when law-abiding American citizens attempt to adopt foreign children, because we know what a security risk a five year old from Nigeria will likely be.

U.S. Forces Parents Away From Adopted Children For As Long As Two Years

Luke and Brittney Stasi appear to have been victims of an unannounced policy change at the U.S. State Department keeping parents from bringing their adopted children home. Will Congress act?

Luke Stasi hasn’t seen his family since January. As his wife, Brittney, has been managing five children and a small business alone in South Carolina, Luke has spent the past seven months stuck in Africa with their sixth child, Victor. read more

WND Exclusive – VENEZUELA: REPLACING 1 SOCIALIST WITH ANOTHER

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What should we make of the situation in Venezuela? Is this really something the United States should be involved in, or is it just another in a string of American buttinskies, injecting ourselves into a nation’s internal struggle?

While many on the right are cheering the most recent coup attempt to overthrow the current Thug-in-Chief, Nicholas Maduro, by Juan Guaidó, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s just another case of replacing the devil we know with the devil we don’t. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Rejects UN Arms Treaty

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

So President Trump gave his fifth consecutive speech at the annual NRA convention. And he, as he always does, got a warm welcome and raucous applause.

At one point he opened a binder, took out a pen, and signed, in front of the crowd, his rejection of the United Nations “Arms Trading Treaty.” Or ATT

Yay for him!

The treaty is just another way to under our Constitution and the Second Amendment.

Regretfully, the weather did not permit me to discuss Mayor de Blasio’s New Green Deal for NYC. read more

No More Regime Change

Juan Guaido

I don’t often disagree with President Trump or Vice President Pence on policy, but what we’re hearing regarding the whole Venezuela situation bothers me.

Everyone in their right minds would agree that Nicolás Maduro Moros, current president of Venezuela is a bad guy. And by bad guy, I mean like spawn of Satan bad guy. As bad as was Hugo Chávez, Maduro is worse.

Conditions in Venezuela are already terrible and getting worse all the time. Food is scarce and clean water, almost nonexistent. People are being forced to drink and cook what little food they have in the same foul water in which they wash their clothes (by hand) and children bath in. It’s a miracle that diseases haven’t yet run rampant.

Yet Maduro is unfazed, blaming the plight of “his” people on outside forces aligning against him and his regime. Sounds a lot like Kim Jong Un. read more

Damn the Torpedoes – Cut Foreign Aid

During a time of increased illegal immigration at the Southern border in the summer of 2014, democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein encouraged President Barack Obama to use his “very broad power” to limit immigration as he saw fit.

In a letter sent to Obama, Feinstein noted that she spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about how to address the immigration “crisis.”

“There is also an argument that there is sufficient flexibility in current law for the government to respond to the current crisis and that further legislation is not needed,” Feinstein said.

She was referring to Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to limit immigration that is “detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

Feinstein continued to argue that “no legislation is necessary to give your administration the tools it needs to respond to this crisis, and that any needed temporary measures can be implemented through presidential action.”

My how the democrats are singing a different tune less than five years later. Crisis then – no crisis now. I’m sure it can’t have anything to do with the fact that Donald Trump is now president. Or maybe it’s that Obama was just so darn successful at curtailing illegal crossings that the crisis simply is no more. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it. read more

The Trump Administration is racing to field a new nuclear weapon designed to counter Russia and enhance nuclear deterrence.

The W-76-2 warhead will be delivered to the U.S. Navy for deployment on ballistic missile submarines in late 2019. Proponents claim the new warhead will enable the U.S. to respond to Russian nuclear weapons proportionately, but critics claim the W-76-2 is just another nuclear weapon and similarly dangerous. read more

Venezuela, Cuba may be Designated as Terror States

from the Washington Free Beacon:

GOP Senators to Venezuelan Generals: ‘You Have a Decision to Make’

Key Republicans on Capitol Hill are warning the Maduro government in Venezuela, as well as Cuba, that they could be officially designated as state sponsors of terrorism, a status that carries the harshest of U.S. sanctions.

The Trump administration—at the same lawmakers’ urging—is also weighing new sanctions on Cuban generals and other officials, as well an even harsher action: ending a waiver, known as Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which has been in effect since 1996, according to several government officials. read more

Is Socialism Coming to an End in Venezuela?

from NewsBusters:

Maduro Must Go

Decades from now, historians will note with irony that socialism was rehabilitated in the United States just as its full depravity

Nicolás Maduro / Juan Guaidò

came into view in Venezuela. That beleaguered South American country took its first steps on the road to serfdom in 1999, when Hugo Chávez was elected to the first of four presidential terms. The former military officer used Venezuela’s plentiful oil reserves to spread the wealth as he consolidated power, harassed dissenters, and joined forces with Castro. Chávez was more than a typical Latin American populist. His regime was the rallying place for the international, anti-American left. His name became an ideology—Chávismo—based on revolutionary politics and centralized control. He was detestable. read more
