North Korea Claims Nuclear Missiles on Standby

North Korea Claims Nuclear Missiles on Standby | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Provocative rhetoric by North Korea continued with its three-star general claiming the country has a long-range missile armed with nuclear warheads on standby.

 

A leading general in North Korea claims the country has a long-range missile armed with nuclear warheads on standby. Pyongyang repeated its Thursday vow to ditch all nonaggression pacts with South Korea and again threatened a "preemptive nuclear attack" on the United States as well.

The regime also announced early Friday that it plans to cut off phone hotlines between North and South Korea. It was part of a defiant response to tough new sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council.

Colonel General Kang Pyo-yong was quoted in North Korea's party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, as saying his soldiers are already positioned to launch a war of reunification -- taking over South Korea -- whenever the order is given by its leaders. "Our intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and other missiles are on standby position mounted with various nuclear warheads that have been developed lighter and smaller," he announced to tens of thousands gathered Thursday at a mass rally in Pyongyang.

 

In recent days, North Korea has vowed to turn Seoul and Washington into a "sea of fire," has imposed no-sail/no-fly zones along its coasts, and warned that it might end the armistice that halted the Korean War in 1953 without a peace treaty.

The targets of the latest round of sanctions included in the latest round of sanctions include top officials at a company that is the country's primary arms dealer and main exporter of ballistic missile-related equipment, and a national organization responsible for research and development of missiles and probably nuclear weapons.

Venezuela's Opposition Leader Calls Maduro a Liar And A "Boy"

Venezuela's Opposition Leader Calls Maduro a Liar And A "Boy" | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Venezuela's opposition leader said Friday that Vice President Nicolas Maduro had "shamelessly" lied to the country and accused him of using Hugo Chavez's funeral to campaign for the presidency.

 

Henrique Capriles also said in a speech that the opposition had asked to attend Chavez's funeral but was told "better that you don't come."

Capriles spoke condescendingly of Maduro, calling him "boy."

APOpposition leader Henrique Capriles holds up... View Full Caption

Capriles lost the Oct. 7 presidential election to Chavez. He said he decided to speak Friday to object to the ruling earlier in the day by the country's highest court that Maduro had become acting president the moment Chavez died.

The government announced Thursday night that Maduro would be sworn in Friday night. He will be the governing socialists' presidential candidate in the vote to replace Chavez.

Capriles said he had withheld criticism since Chavez's death out of respect, but could no longer hold his tongue at what he saw as a power grab.

"I tell you clearly, Nicolas, I am not going to speak of the times you lied to the country, shamelessly," Capriles said. "The people have not voted for you, boy."

littlebytesnews's insight:

Under the constitution, the head of Congress, Diosdado Cabello, would assume the interim presidency.

However, Mr Maduro is Chavez's self-annointed successor and has been holding the reigns since the president's health took a turn for the worse.

The man Chavez defeated in October's presidential elections, Miranda state Governor Henrique Capriles, is expected to represent the opposition in any new national polls.

Lindsey Graham failed to keep his word to block his vote until we had all the details and the truth about Benghazi.

littlebytesnews's insight:

They are leading the way for the US....just like Greece, Spain and others have already collapsed into economic chaos, how soon will we be where they are at and eventually a third world country like Venezuela?? Hopefully we can stop the destruction in 2014. Sadly we didn't get to vote Obama out in 2012, but I have hope for 2014 now that Obama has been exposed for his corrupt and destructive ways. He is exposing himself more and more whether the mainstream media tries to cover for him or not, it's getting harder and harder to cover the lies and destruction, especially now that he's using the sequester cuts to abuse his power against the people and reducing national security.

Personally I have no use for porn, so would be ok with banning it,but I understand the free speech concept and the slippery slope that can be imposed
Anthony Beaumont's curator insight, October 13, 2013 9:42 AM

Most countries used the crash as an unanticipated opportunity to restructure their economies....Britain did not. The underlying basis of Britain's growth is property fueled and indicates that Britain has not learnt from crisis of the last 15 years. One fears the consequences of a property bubble bursting à la Vince Cable's concerns.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I hate to see him ruin his reputation, especially after all the hard work he's gone through and sacrifices his mom made to get him where he is today. He needs to keep his mom and future in mind before he lets his stress and anger get in the way of his success. He's still young and has a lot of growing to do. I'd hate to see him fail and become another teen success story that goes astray. 

 

For those who don't know ...a little background on Justin Bieber:

His mom raised him as a single mother and refused to get an abortion, for that I admire him and his mother for all they have overcome. I wish him nothing but the best and hope he will take a vacation to get away from some of the strees he's under, especially after he fainted during a concert last night.

Court to DHS: Hand over ‘stealth amnesty’ docs after DHS violates FOIA request

Court to DHS: Hand over ‘stealth amnesty’ docs after DHS violates FOIA request | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

A federal court ruled the Obama administration must turn over records related to its policy of suspending some deportations of illegal aliens, which critics have called “stealth amnesty.”

The Department of Homeland Security violated the Freedom of Information Act by failing to hand over relevant records to the D.C. watchdog group Judicial Watch, ruled Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Feb. 28.

 

Judicial Watch said documents it previously uncovered show DHS officials misled Congress and the public about the scope of changes in its immigration enforcement policy.

The new policy gave wide latitude to local immigration officials to dismiss illegal alien deportation cases, including the dismissal of charges against illegals convicted of violent crimes.

“This ruling shows the Obama administration is willing to go to any extent – including gaming the courts – to continue stonewalling the full story of its lawless release of illegal aliens,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“Now, with the prison floodgates being thrown open to illegal aliens under the phony pretense of abiding by sequester cuts, it is more important than ever that Obama’s hand be revealed,” he said.

The policy, implemented by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, led to a reduction of the deportation docket in Houston, Texas, by dismissing pending enforcement proceedings against illegal aliens DHS claimed did not have serious criminal records.

Judicial Watch subsequently uncovered records showing that deportation cases were dismissed against illegal aliens who had committed serious felonies.

The litigation has become more significant, Judicial Watch pointed out, with the Obama administration’s large-scale suspension of deportations and the release of thousands of criminal illegal aliens due to alleged sequester budget cuts.

Since mid-February, the Obama administration has released from jail more than 2,000 illegal aliens facing deportation, the Associated Press reported. The administration reportedly plans to release 3,000 more this month.

Judicial Watch filed its original FOIA request with DHS in August 2010 and a subsequent lawsuit in March 2011 after the department refused to release the requested records.

Hopefully after the 2014 election we take back the Senate and can start making some real changes in the right direction, starting with the impeachment of Obama, Holder, Incompetano and others responsible for failures in our national security and foreign policy starting with Fast and Furious to Benghazi and this illegal amnesty and release of criminal immigrants!

White House statement on sequester's impact on first lady budget | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The following statement was issued by a White House official, when asked whether the sequester would affect the first lady's office budget. 

 

"The First Lady's office is part of the Executive Office of the President. To comply with the sequester, White House components will cut back on all but the most urgent supply and equipment purchases.  Personnel costs will be reduced by implementing a hiring slow-down or freeze, furloughing employees or reducing salaries.  The reduced staffing levels will necessarily affect the critical, day-to-day official functions of the White House - but they also have an impact on routine public functions like responding to public correspondence, updating the White House website and facilitating White House tours of both the residence and the West Wing."

Video on msnbc.com: The economy is improving, but why isn’t Obama getting any of the credit? The Grio’s Joy Reid and Time’s Michael Crowley discuss.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Obama hasn't improved anything and the economy is stagnate despite what today's fixed unempoyment numbers say. They never account for the number of people who stopped looking for work and no longer qualify for unemployment and the real unemployment rate which is closer to 15%. Obama has done nothing to improve the economy so what makes them think he has improved it? He hasn't passed a balanced budget, the DEM Senate wouldn't even vote on his budget because it is so bad. They'd rather let the sequester cuts go through so they can try and blame the GOP while Obama makes wreckless cuts to defense, national security and next social security.

 

He doesn't want to make any real cuts to spending;won't cut his golf vacations but would rather stop White House tours to make the people feel 'the pain'. His intention is to create anger in people and make them blame the GOP for not going along with increasing taxes again, despite them going up in January after the payroll tax break expired, they increased the debt ceiling and Obama raised taxes on the wealthy. Now he wants to raise taxes again. But, since he didn't get his way, he'd rather let the sequester cuts go into effect but rather than make sensible cuts he's making cuts in areas that are vital and necessary to kep the country safe and functioning. Anyone who doesn't see this is beyond hope and help.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Good move...though I would still prefer trained and armed security such as former law enforcement, military or off duty police providing the first line of security. While teachers may get adequate weapons training and learn how to deal with an active shooter, I think those who have worked in the field would be more likely to respond quickly and appropriately in this situation. But, I would rather the teachers have a way to protect and defend themselves and their students before having to wait for security to reach the classroom during an emergency situation.
