It was a long time coming but according to the Department of Homeland Security, the gunman who is said to have murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry had finally been captured. “The suspected shooter in the 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has been arrested…” announced CNN’s Jake Tapper on The Lead Thursday, “38-year-old Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was taken into custody in Mexico Wednesday, it was part of a joint operation between the two countries.” But despite this positive news, all of the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored it.

Early Friday morning, PyongYang radio started broadcasting coded messages ‘for No. 27 expedition agents’.
According to White House chief bureau of VOA News, Steve Herman, this type of Cold War-era coded transmission resumed last June.
Early Friday, Radio Pyongyang broadcast a coded message “for No. 27 expedition agents.”

I signed up for “America First.”
It might not have been a White ethnostate or an independent South, but I thought it would be a step in the right direction. I assumed “America First” meant a sharp break with the status quo. It meant a triumph of nationalism over globalism. We would stop fighting all these stupid foreign wars in places we don’t care about. We would change our trade policy and start rebuilding our industrial base. We would secure our own borders and deport illegal aliens. It was music to my ears.
How much of Trump’s campaign rhetoric was ever real? What happened to Drain The Swamp? Was it all just marketing to get Trump elected president?
“Donald Trump’s true believers are losing the faith.
As Trump struggles to keep his campaign promises and flirts with political moderation, his most steadfast supporters — from veteran advisers to anti-immigration activists to the volunteers who dropped their jobs to help elect him — are increasingly dismayed by the direction of his presidency.
Their complaints range from Trump’s embrace of an interventionist foreign policy to his less hawkish tone on China to, most recently, his marginalization of his nationalist chief strategist, Steve Bannon. But the crux of their disillusionment, interviews with nearly two dozen Trump loyalists reveal, is a belief that Trump the candidate bears little resemblance to Trump the president. He’s failing, in their view, to deliver on his promise of a transformative “America First” agenda driven by hard-edged populism. …”
The 2016 election was about “replacing the failed and corrupt political establishment” If it wasn’t about overthrowing the political establishment, what was the point?
It looks like Mike Cernovich may have been right once again!
US officials want to send troops to Syria
Following Mike Cernovich’s assertions earlier this week that General H. R. McMaster “wants 150,000 ground soldiers in Syria”, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake, who is now notorious for verifying Cernovich’s mainstream-media-derided “conspiracy theories” (see the Susan Rice unmasking story), claims the U.S. is potentially about to send anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 ground troops to Syria. If Mike Cernovich is right, we could be looking at almost double, or triple that amount.
Senior White House and administration officials tell me Trump’s national security adviser, General H.R. McMaster, has been quietly pressing his colleagues to question the underlying assumptions of a draft war plan against the Islamic State that would maintain only a light U.S. ground troop presence in Syria. McMaster’s critics inside the administration say he wants to send tens of thousands of ground troops to the Euphrates River Valley. His supporters insist he is only trying to facilitate a better interagency process to develop Trump’s new strategy to defeat the self-described caliphate that controls territory in Iraq and Syria.
Just to be perfectly clear, the U.S. has had ground troops (mostly special forces) in Syria since 2014 when Obama broke his promise of “no more boots on the ground”.
The stated goal by certain government officials would be to remove the Assad regime entirely and hopefully create a level of instability in the area – this is something that has been echoed by both Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
It looks like the potential threat of a proxy war in Syria continues to escalate.
This is something President Trump said would not happen.
This won’t go over well with his base.

Mike Pompeo kind of reminds me of a Neo-Con sociopath Kevin James lookalike – maybe we can even have him play the role of the CIA Director in a future movie about the nightmare collapse of the Trump Administration.
But honestly, did we praise this weirdo when he was nominated by Trump way back in late November?
I can’t remember for the life of me, although I do recall a story about Congressional cuckolds and Jews trying to hold off his confirmation by using the standard bureaucratic tricks.
But in hindsight, maybe we should have rooted for the Christ-Killers just the one time – it’s strange, but we live in chaotic times indeed.
CIA Director Mike Pompeo called Julian Assange and his associates “demons” and accused WikiLeaks of siding with the world’s dictators and endangering the security of the “free world” with the help of states like Russia.
Speaking at an event organized by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, DC on Thursday, the former Kansas congressman went on the warpath against the whistleblower website, accusing its editor Julian Assange of being on the “wrong side of history” and seeking to harm America, freedom and democracy.
“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is, a non-state hostile intelligence service, often abetted by state actors like Russia,” Pompeo told the audience.
“The Russian propaganda outlet RT actively collaborated with WikiLeaks,” Pompeo added, repeating the unsubstantiated allegation by Hillary Clinton’s campaign from October 2016, when RT reported on the daily disclosures of emails from Clinton’s campaign chair, John Podesta.
They must have some nice blackmail on Pompeo if he’s gone full Podesta with this gibberish.
Kind of makes you wonder, considering the fact that Trump praised WikiLeaks to the ends of the earth during the final months of the campaign.
But that still doesn’t matter, for we now have #NewTrump, and his job will be to nuke the offices of RT in the name of freedom and equality.
Assange “knows nothing about America and our ideals,” Pompeo declared, adding that had he lived in the 1930s he would have been on the “wrong side of history,” as he “and his ilk make common cause with dictators today.”
“Their currency is clickbait, their moral compass nonexistent,” Pompeo added, accusing Assange of being a “narcissist… a fraud, a coward hiding behind a screen.”
Does this count as an example of Godwin’s Law, or is it too vague?
Either way, the White Wizard is actually a pretty fair guy, all things considered, as he has stated in the past that he would release information on Trump if and when it became available.
What we really need are #KushnerEmails, for that may tell us quite a little bit about what we’re exactly dealing with.
My money is on blackmail, or potentially some sort of Satanic Jew witchcraft that may or may not involve the blood of Gentile children.
The CIA director rejected Assange’s reasoning that WikiLeaks had the right to publish documents that WikiLeaks obtained, arguing that the right to free speech does not apply to non-Americans.
“Julian Assange has no First Amendment freedoms,” Pompeo said. “He’s sitting in an embassy in London. He’s not a US citizen.”
So by that logic, why aren’t you using the CIA to arrest and prosecute illegal filth like Jose Antonio Vargas for his flaunting of American laws, Mikey?
I mean, Vargas isn’t an American citizen, so why does our Constitution protect him and not Assange?
“These are not reporters doing good work, to try and keep the American government honest, but people actively recruiting agents to steal American secrets with the sole intent of destroying the American way of life,” he added. “No one has the right to actively engage in the theft of secrets from America with the intent to do harm to it.”
If he’s referring to the information gathered by WikiLeaks during the campaign, then I guess weird emails containing pedophilia innuendos and conspiracies against political candidates (Uncle Jew Bernie) are part of the American way of life.
How dare those Russian monsters attack such sacred bastions of Democracy?
Pompeo confirmed that it was his agency that concluded that the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical weapons attack in Khan Shaykhun, which persuaded Trump to fire 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase last week.
“We were good, and fast,” he said, “and we got it right.”
He dismissed the statements from the Russian government questioning the US narrative about the attack, saying Russia is “on their 6th or 7th story, none of which have an ounce of truth to them.”
“This is the man for whom veracity does not translate into English,” Pompeo said of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“We have to preserve the American democracy from this threat of misinformation and propaganda that poses a real risk to our democratic values,” Pompeo said, when asked about alleged Russian “active measures.”
Right now, I’m going to need a night to process what I’ve just read and highlighted – I’m that disgusted and enraged.
We’ve now officially entered a new realm of insanity, and it is now clear that #MAGA is deader than a heroin junkie rotting in a Skid Row alley.
The (((Swamp))) has emerged victorious, and we now have to worry about Julian Assange getting Seal Team Sixed, or having a MOAB dumping on top of his embassy home.
May he and WikiLeaks fight long and hard against these terrorists, and may they help us to emerge from the shadows of a new Age of Darkness.
Charles Krauthammer described on FOX News this afternoon how Trump has done a complete 180 from the foreign policy he articulated in the campaign and in his Inaugural Address:
Note: We traveled to DC to see that speech at the Inaugural. What is the point of having elections though if our elections never change our policies?
On Monday, a federal judge struck down the state of Texas’ voter ID law with claims that the law was specifically designed to target minorities. Seemingly just hearing about it on Thursday, CBS Evening News touted the development. “A federal judge has again struck down Texas' voter ID law, ruling that it is actually meant to keep minorities from voting. The state is expected to appeal,” announced Anchor Scott Pelley at the start of the segment.
On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that he welcomes President Trump’s recent foreign policy moves, particularly the Syria strike, because “I’m not an America Firster. I thought it was a mistake to enunciate a doctrine in the Inaugural Address which is, we’re coming home.” Krauthammer said, “[T]he strike on Syria was not something that is a tweak or a slight deviation from what he ran on. … And the reason it is a radical departure is because, in the Inaugural Address he defines national interests very narrowly, and here, what we are back to is the traditional American understanding of national interests as a broad definition, going all the way back to Harry Truman, in which we define our interest as worldwide, otherwise, what is Syria to us?” He added, “I welcome this. I’m not an America Firster. I thought it was a mistake to enunciate a doctrine in the Inaugural Address which is, we’re coming home. It scared the bee-jeebies out of our allies in NATO, when he talked about it being obsolete. It scared — in the Middle East, the Gulf Arabs were scared to death. I think this is
“The most hated woman in the South,” she’s been called.
Since I am a South Carolinian, Ms. Randhawa has been on my radar for many years. She rode into office on the Tea Party wave, after securing what was, at the time, the highly coveted Sarah Palin endorsement.
After the Charleston murders by Dylann Roof in 2015, people across the nation seemingly turned on the citizens of SC as a whole, as though we were all guilty for the actions of the killer. Somehow the focal point quickly became the Confederate flag on our statehouse grounds. The flag had been moved from the capital dome to the statehouse grounds years before after a long-fought compromise that was meant to be permanent. There was no real connection from the memorial on the statehouse grounds to the murders, other than an old photo of Roof with a Confederate flag. The outcry about the memorial flag was a reflexive hate reaction for those who vilify Southerners as a group.
A gifted states-person who cared about the people of South Carolina could have used the opportunity to both unify the people of SC and defend us to the nation. Haley had no interest in doing either. She used the event as an opportunity to please her GOPe superiors and get flattering media coverage in the eyes of the larger (South-hating) nation. The GOPe, still pretending to be conservative by imitating whatever the Democrats did 20 years ago, were thrilled to have a photogenic, brown, female face to parade around to demonstrate how diverse and progressive the party had become. Haley was rewarded with magazine covers and plum speaking spots.
Shortly after the massacre, Ann Coulter wrote a post about the good people of South Carolina “…whose families carved this country out of the wilderness, who have family Bibles going back ten generations…who fought in every war since the revolution…the nicest, hardest working, most sincere and down to earth people in the world…”
That heartfelt defense was written by a Yankee pundit. Our own governor, by contrast, chose the path of “healing” through facilitating the cultural genocide of her constituents. It is difficult to overstate how treacherous one must be to betray the trust of her fellow citizens in such a way.
Haley has also been dogged by more rumors of extra-marital affairs than any female politician of which I am aware, both before and during her term as governor. One may begin to surmise that loyalty is not her “thing.” (However, it does seem fitting that one of the most prominent females in the Cuckservative party is someone who has *literally* cuckolded her husband.)
She also lacks gravitas. Haley’s social media posts regularly featured hokey inspirational memes, song lyrics, Netflix recommendations, and other things that would be fine if it they were being posted by your Aunt Betty rather than the state’s highest office holder.
It was surprising, after her vocal criticism of Trump, that he appointed her to be the UN Ambassador. It might have been because her successor, Henry McMaster, endorsed Trump ahead of the first-in-the-South Republican primary. We will probably never know for sure. Whatever the reason, she is there now. I know I speak for many of my fellow South Carolinians when I say, “New York can have her.”
However, I will caution her fans to remember this. You knew she was a snake before you let her in.
During an interview broadcast Thursday’s “Special Report,” on the Fox News Channel, Pinal County, AZ Sheriff Mark Lamb (R) stated, “illegal immigration goes hand-in-hand, almost always, with drug trafficking and with human trafficking.” Lamb said, “People need to understand that illegal immigration goes hand-in-hand, almost always, with drug trafficking and with human trafficking.” He added that the 287(g) program “allows me to make sure that I’m not putting criminals back in our communities.” During the same segment, ICE’s LA Field Director David Marin said, “[T]hose sheriffs and law enforcement agencies realize that by turning over these criminal aliens to us, that, they’re not going to be able to go out and commit additional crimes.” Marin added that with sanctuary cities “Instead of taking these criminal aliens in a secure environment of a jail, our officers have to go out on the street. And that not only endangers our officers, but the community at large, as well.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
U.S. Ready to Retaliate if North Korea Tests Device – 2 Navy Destroyers Capable of Shooting Tomahawk Missiles in Position
The U.S. is ready to retaliate if North Korea tests a nuclear device in the near future. 2 Navy Destroyers are in position to send Tomahawk missiles in the region of the nuclear test site.
NBC News is reporting that the U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike…
The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
However, other sources such as the White House chief bureau, Steve Herman is saying that the U.S. is ready to retaliate in a preventive strike if North Korea were to test a nuclear weapon rather than a preemptive strike…

Napolitano claimed President Obama went outside of American chain-of-command, to British intelligence, to spy on Trump!
Judge Andrew Napolitano: “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA. He didn’t use the CIA. He didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use Department of Justice. He used GCHQ. What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database. So by simply having two people go to them saying, ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump, conversations involving president-elect Trump,’ he’s able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this.”
Via FOX and Friends:
Judge Napolitano was suspended from FOX News for making the comments.
Today we found out — 30 days after Judge Napolitano broke the story — that he was right.
British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials and other Russian individuals during the campaign and passed on those communications to their US counterparts, US congressional and law enforcement and US and European intelligence sources tell CNN.
The communications were captured during routine surveillance of Russian officials and other Russians known to western intelligence. British and European intelligence agencies, including GCHQ, the British intelligence agency responsible for communications surveillance, were not proactively targeting members of the Trump team but rather picked up these communications during what’s known as “incidental collection,” these sources tell CNN.
The European intelligence agencies detected multiple communications over several months between the Trump associates and Russian individuals — and passed on that intelligence to the US. The US and Britain are part of the so-called “Five Eyes” agreement (along with Canada, Australia and New Zealand), which calls for open sharing among member nations of a broad range of intelligence.

Things will work out fine between the U.S.A. and Russia. At the right time everyone will come to their senses & there will be lasting peace!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 13, 2017
Apparently responding to the outrage of his base, Trump has appeared to backtrack on his previous push for war against Russia.
Or maybe this is just more chess?
Maybe he’s now playing chess against us?
Honestly I’m so pissed off, I don’t even care anymore.
Despite tensions between the global superpowers, US President Donald Trump has promised that “things will work out fine” between the USA and Russia.
On Wednesday, the president said US relations with Russia may be at “an all-time low.” Trump’s comments came following a meeting between US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“There is a low level of trust between our countries,” Tillerson said to the media after the two-hour long meeting where the men discussed US-Russia relations in the wake of last week’s US airstrike on a Syrian airbase.
On Thursday, however, the US president expressed a far more positive outlook. “Things will work out fine between the U.S.A. and Russia. At the right time everyone will come to their senses & there will be lasting peace!” he said on Twitter.
Trump promised to improve his country’s relationship with Russia during the election campaign, as well as regularly expressing contempt for NATO. His stance, however, has changed since taking office. On Wednesday he described the military alliance as a “bulwark of international peace and security.”
This is all so unbelievable that I still can’t hardly believe it’s happening.
I mean, selling us out is one thing.
But selling out absolutely everything he stood for within a week’s time is too much.
He has clearly been infiltrated, but you would think the infiltrators would understand how insane this appears.
This is the craziest thing I’ve ever witnessed.
WAR DRUMS: South Korea Commander Orders Troops To Be Ready To “Mercilessly Retaliate” Against North Korea
South Korea is preparing to hit North Korea where it hurts, if the Hermit Kingdom strikes the first blow.
The new commander of South Korea’s Marine Corps took office on Thursday calling on his 30,000 troops to be ready to “mercilessly retaliate” against North Korea’s provocations.
In a change-of-commander ceremony, Lt. Gen. Jun Jin-goo pointed out that the elite forces have played a key role in the front-line defense of the country.
“The Marine Corps has protected places most difficult to defend but should be done so at all costs” from Baengnyeong Island near the western sea border with North Korea to Pohang, Ullleung Island and Jeju Island, he said in his speech at the event held the headquarters of the Marine Corps in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province.
He urged his unit to maintain full readiness on the basis of combat-oriented spirit to “mercilessly retaliate” against an enemy’s provocation.
Dignitaries who attended the ceremony included some lawmakers, provincial government officials, former Marine Corps leaders and Lt. Gen. Lawrence D. Nicholson who commands the III Marine Expeditionary Force of the United States.
Having served as the head of the Marine Corps’ 2nd Division, Jun is known for leading a successful crackdown on Chinese ships illegally fishing in the West Sea.
The Korean Times reports, Lt. Gen. Jun Jin-goo is one of South Korea’s finest military men:
Maj. Gen. Jun Jin-goo, currently deputy commander of the Corps, will be promoted to lieutenant general and assume command later this week, as his predecessor, Lt. Gen. Lee Sang-hoon will end his two-year tenure and retire from military service, according to the Ministry of National Defense.
A change of command ceremony will take place Thursday as no confirmation hearing is required.
“Jun has gained expertise and capabilities in combined and joint operations,” the ministry said in a release. “He also has enjoyed strong respect in senior-junior relations.”
The Ministry noted that acting President and Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn pushed for making such an appointment, considering that a vacuum in the position would pose a serious national security concern. The government, which usually carries out the reshuffling of top military officers in April, will delay other appointments until after the May 9 presidential election, the ministry added.

Thursday on WABC’s “The Rita Cosby Show,” conservative commentator Pat Buchanan said today’s “mother of all bombs” (MOAB) attack on an ISIS tunnel complex in Afghanistan was also meant to send a “message” to North Korea. Buchanan said, “First, I think it is obviously a sign that Donald Trump is listening to his generals and is getting much tougher and is accepting their advice. This is meant to go into these tunnels and kill al-Qaida or ISIS right where they live. But let me say, Rita, this is a second message that’s being sent – and it’s to the North Koreans. The North Koreans, they have their tests, their atom bombs deep in tunnels, and I think what it is, is a message to them that we can get down in there and kill your people underground as well as above-ground – and so I would think that’s a message to North Korea as well.” (h/t Newsmax) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
Bill Clinton, Barrack Obama, and all of their Democratic policies and positioning in with North Korea and their nuclear aspirations have been total failures . . . President Donald Trump is here to fix that.
On July 8th, 1994, Kim il-Sung died and power was ceded to his son Kim over a three year period in an effort to consolidate his power. Later in 1994, then-President Bill Clinton’s set forth a deal with Pyongyang that was known shorthand as the “Agreed Framework”. The deal was formulated to replace to North Korea’s nuclear power plant program with light water reactor power plants, which are more resistant to nuclear proliferation; on top of this, Clinton hoped to normalize the relationship with the DPRK. Via Lifezette
[…]On Oct. 18, 1994, Clinton approved a plan to arrange more than $4 billion in energy aid to North Korea over the course of a decade, in return for a commitment from the country’s Communist leadership to freeze and gradually dismantle its nuclear weapons development program, according to The New York Times.
With this deal Clinton hoped to “draw-in” North Korea to global community – this, of course, never happened. After all, what misbehaving child would start behaving better if you INCREASED their allowance? The hermit country became more hermetic, and after they pocketed our tax-payer funded financial aid, America’s relationship with North Korea swiftly deteriorated. Every time we attempt to accommodate North Korea (which historically tends to only happen under Democratic leadership in the U.S.), we end up losing mass sums of money and while we allow them to expand their tyrannical familial “leadership”.
Just like Barrack Obama’s botched deal with Iran, cutting deals with rogue or hostile nations can only lead to the empowerment of evil. North Korea is a prime example of that.
As far back as February 2, 1999, CIA Director George Tenet was warning the Senate Armed Services Committee that with a little bit more elbow grease and time North Korea would be capable of utilizing their Taepo Dong-1 to hit parts of Alaska and Hawaii.
Bill Clinton’s immense failures in regards to North Korea helped pave the way to the pussyfoot strategy of the Obama administration, which they claimed was based on “strategic patience”. Obama foolishly held tight to the idea that North Korea’s regime would collapse and in turn prevented any real discourse or intervention that would be necessary to thwart North Korea’s growing instability and threat. It is hard to say how this would have happened given China’s continued support of the dictatorship.
Democrats fail consistently at understanding the arrogance of the DPRK. Whenever we say to “unclench your first” they take it as the U.S. asking them to reach out and grovel, which obviously comes across as an insult and is an easy way to ensure relations grow more hostile. Via Arms Control:
Early in Obama’s term of office, North Korea displayed a uranium-enrichment program to complement its plutonium production. For ways to deliver nuclear weapons, it successfully tested submarine-launched systems; intermediate-range, road-mobile Musudan missiles; and satellite-launch rockets that employ technologies useful for intercontinental-range missiles. Nuclear armament became etched in the country’s constitution and posture. Pyongyang now insists it will never give up its nuclear-armed status. The six-party talks that once showed promise of a path to dismantling the nuclear program are dead, the parties not having met since before Obama took office.
Obama, just like Clinton before him, completely and utterly failed at making any reasonable progress when it came to North Korea. Finally, we have a new sheriff in town who is quickly realizing that the failure of previous Democratic presidencies has led to an escalation in terms of the threat North Korea poses.
President Trump is now flexing on the hermit kingdom. He bombed Syria – an ally of the DPRK – and followed through on his promise to “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS by issuing a MOAB on ISIS controlled territory in Afghanistan as The Gateway Pundit has previously reported. In addition, our powerful armada is currently en route to the Korean peninsula which puts China (as well as the rest of the world) on notice that we will take care of Pyongyang ourselves if we must.
After decades of lackluster leadership that has given rise to international terror and expanding dictatorships that could have disastrous consequences for us here at home, it is a much-needed change of foreign policy pace to see a president finally take charge of these international threats both forcefully but pragmatically.

One week in, the new ESPN policy move toward “balance" in political reporting is failing badly. This is based on two actions immediately following the so-called policy changes by the biggest name in left-stream sports media. Both are indicators that ESPN is actually doubling down on its hard Left mooring.
