Spring break in North Korea – What could possibly go wrong?

Besties Kim Jong Un and Dennis Rodman

FOXNEWS: North Korea ‘amazed’ by Spanish beach resort known for drinking binges, plans knock-off

North Korea plans to create a large beach resort in one of the country’s port cities, a knock-off of a Spanish getaway that’s a hotspot for drinking tourists, a report said.
The beach resort, planned to be built in Wonsan, will mimick the Spanish city of Benidorm, The Telegraph reported. The secretive regime became infatuated with Benidorm after 20 North Korean officials took a fact-finding trip to the beach resort and were “amazed by the dimensions” of the towers and holiday parks, a spokesman for the North Korean embassy in Madrid said…

Yup, you read that correctly

The military nightmare that is actively threatening all its neighbors now has plans for a relaxed ocean getaway. Perhaps they see this as a way of persuading their kidnapping victims pay their own airfare into captivity.

Is it possible President Kim Jong Un saw a way to move toward peace when living in Switzerland?

North Korea has a ridiculously luxe ski resort

By Associated Press March 17, 2016 | 10:24am
MASIK PASS, North Korea — To view the humbling limits of round after round of international sanctions against North Korea, come to Masik Pass. It isn’t a secret military facility where Kim Jong Un’s best and brightest are hard at work developing nuclear warheads and long-range missiles.
It’s a ski resort.

So let’s sum this up

North Korea is hoping to get people to book vacations to their country, and to feel encouraged to let loose and party and drink with complete abandon. Will they have Ibiza styled disco parties? Will Jimmy Buffet add North Korea to his yearly Coral Reefer Band tour?
Let’s ask Otto Warmbier what he thinks.
What’s that? Oh… sorry.
Well it seems that Otto is in no condition to comment.

The transformation of Megyn Kelly

It’s never a good thing when a journalist, instead of reporting the news, becomes instead a subject of news.
That’s the case with FoxNews’ Megyn Kelly, because of her continuing combativeness with Donald Trump.
I don’t watch FauxNews [sic] because I, intentionally, don’t have cable TV. So I wasn’t aware of recent changes in Kelly’s physical appearance, until FOTM readers pointed it out. (See “Strange Bedfellows on FoxNews” and “FAUX NEWS secretly supports illegal immigration“.)
So I went looking for pics of Kelly and compiled the “before” and “after” comparison below:
Megyn Kelly in 2012 vs. 2016
Yikes! What happened to her?
It’s more than the short hair and eye makeup. There’s been a spiritual transformation, and it’s not to the good . . . .
Wikipedia says Megyn Kelly, 45, has a law degree (J.D.) from Albany Law School. An Irish-Italian Roman Catholic, she has three children with her second husband. Politically, she identifies as an independent and says she has voted for both Democrats and Republicans.

Update (June 12 2017):

It turns out Megyn Kelly’s transformation is more than her hairstyle or her hard eyes. Long before she became a FoxNews anchor, Kelly had extensive plastic surgery. H/t National Enquirer.

Green Peace co-founder now admits no scientific proof of man-made global warming

FOXNEWS

Greenpeace co-founder: No scientific proof humans are dominant cause of warming climate

A co-founder of Greenpeace told lawmakers there is no evidence man is contributing to climate change, and said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment.

Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist and business consultant who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet.

“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” he said.

Even if the planet is warming up, Moore claimed it would not be calamitous for men, which he described as a “subtropical species.”

Skeptics of manmade climate change say there is no evidence the Earth is warming. A UN report on the scientific data behind global warming released in September indicated that global surface temperatures have not increased for the past 15 years, but scientists who believe climate change due to man is occurring say it has merely paused because of several factors and will soon resume.

The 2,200-page new Technical Report attributes that to a combination of several factors, including natural variability, reduced heating from the sun and the ocean acting like a “heat sink” to suck up extra warmth in the atmosphere.

Moore said he left Greenpeace in the 1980s because he believed it became more interested in politics than science.

“After 15 years in the top committee I had to leave as Greenpeace took a sharp turn to the political left, and began to adopt policies that I could not accept from my scientific perspective,” he said. “Climate change was not an issue when I abandoned Greenpeace, but it certainly is now.”

Why we don’t watch FoxNews so much anymore

What follows is not a rejection.
Think of it as a disagreement among friends. ~ TD 

Yes, I’m talking about FoxNews, the flagship of conservatism in media.

I do not want to wear anyone out, or overly malign FoxNews. My wife and I are turning the TV to other channels these days for a few reasons. Here are some of them.

stock-footage-psalm-bible-verse-written-with-light-on-sunrise-with-clouds-landscape

Reason #1. We need some good news.

Everyday will have enough battles, and we have decided to start our days seeking spiritual strength first. 

newshype_01

#2. News hype and fear mongering

As with the picture above, the reporting of some things is idiotic. It’s winter, and snowstorms happen even on the Gulf Coast. It’s not catastrophic. It’s typical.

s-FAIR-BALANCED-largebalanced_04balanced_03balanced_02

#3. Fair & Balanced

What that slogan has come to mean is putting up with a parade of political operatives who lie without a tick of conscience.

bill-o-reilly-national-geographic-continue-relationship-with-killing-jesus

#4. Bill O’Reilley

Listening to lecture after lecture by this buffoon, with all the Catholic commitment of Nancy Pelosi, is more than we can stand.

A little fairness & balance to my statement

We are glad FoxNews is out there. We recognize they are far better than ABC and its alphabet cousins. We certainly appreciate people like Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Steve Doocy, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, and Greg Gutfeld. We applaud all of these people and more.

It’s mostly that we are also subjected to Fair and Balanced ad nauseum, and would like to see some of the nation’s problems actually solved.

Yes, and did I mention that I can’t stand O’Reilley? And we could stand to see a little bit less of Geraldo Rivera, too.

Barnhardt: Why conservative media avoid Obama ineligibility

We “get it” as to why the Liberal Establishment Media simply refuse to investigate or even pay attention to the mounting evidence on Obama’s dubious birth eligibility to be POTUS. But we are baffled why supposedly Conservative media such as FoxNews and Hot Air, pundits such as Ann Coulter, and talk show hosts like Sean Hannity also shy away from it. Worse still, Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly not just avoid it, they go out of their way to mock the “birthers”.

The fearless and outspoken Ann Barnhardt has an idea as to why. Here’s a hint:

“Follow the money!”

The following are excerpts from her blog of May 17, 2012, “Yes, I saw the Breitbart Obama Bio Thing” – referring to the revelation that, as recently as 2007, Obama’s literary agency Acton & Dystel in its book promotional brochures described Obama as having been “born in Kenya”:
Two points:
1. This proves that Obama is a stone-cold liar and con-man. Checkmate. Either he lied when he said he was born in Kenya, or he lied when he said he was born in Hawaii. The fact that he commissioned and released an OBVIOUSLY FORGED Hawaiian birth certificate certainly causes the Obama garbage scow to list to the side of the lie being that he was born in Hawaii.
Barack Obama IS A LIAR. He is a man of degenerate morality, and is a psychopath. Is anyone going to do anything about the fact that a con-artist psychopath is the Chief Executive of the largest economy in the world and the history of the world? Is anyone going to do anything about the fact that a con-artist psychopath is the Commander-in-Chief of the largest military force in the world and the history of the world? Is anyone going to do anything about the fact that the entire intelligence, law enforcement and bureaucracy of the United States government is either so incompetent that they couldn’t even vet ONE MAN or that they are complicit in Obama’s con?
Which segues into my second point . . .
2. The Breitbart group AND the HotAir fools (Ed Morrisey and Allahpundit), ONCE AGAIN are pissing all over people who dare point out that Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of the Presidency is seriously, seriously in question. They are doing this in the same breath WHILE REPORTING THIS VERY STORY, which proves beyond any doubt whatsoever that Obama is a liar and con-artist.
WHY? Why do these “conservatives” refuse to engage reality on this point?
I know the answer, and I warn you, it is very depressing.
These folks have made a BOATLOAD of money off of the Obama usurpation. Bottom line: Obama is good for business if you are a “conservative” blogger looking to advance your career and either move into a high-paying gig in the “mainstream media” OR attempting to establish a new-model business like Glenn Beck. It was reported (I think in Forbes) that Beck made a cool $80 million last year. Don’t think for a second that Morrisey, Allahpundit and the Breitbart Team aren’t salivating at the thought of seven-to-eight figure annual hauls.
I actually believe that most of these folks are rooting for Obama to “win”, for whatever that means in a lawless electoral environment, in November because Obama is very, very good for their businesses. Think about yourself. Do you read more or less news now than you did four years ago? Oh, I’d be willing to bet that you read MULTIPLES of what you read four years ago. I do. No doubt.
In order to get those page views, and thus that ad revenue, these folks want as much upheaval and fear among their readers as possible. Obama provides upheaval, fear and outrage in massive quantities. Thus more page views. Thus more income. If Romney is “elected”, many folks would stand down and traffic to sites like HotAir, Breitbart and Beck would curtail precipitously.
Before you accuse me of hypocrisy, please remember that there are no ads on this site. I have been told that I could easily generate several thousand dollars per month by putting ads up here. I refuse. I refuse to profiteer off of the end of the world. I also fully realize that if I started advertising here that I would notice and CARE about traffic, and would thus censor or otherwise shade what I write in order to maximize revenues and retain readers. Okay, at that point I would not be serving God, I would be serving mammon (money). Nope. I don’t give a crap if I have ten million readers or zero. It’s all exactly the same to me, and it is going to stay that way. In other words, HONEST.
Doing this “blogging thing” has done nothing but cost me money, and now that Barnhardt Capital Management is no longer in business (thanks to Obama crony and oligarch Jon Corzine, who stole $1.6 billion and totally destroyed the entire financial market paradigm) I am burning through reserves with each passing month. I have enough material to publish at least TWO books of essays – I even have a self-publishing deal ready to go – but I can’t bring myself to do it because I don’t want to go to hell for profiteering off of the death of my country and civilization.
So yeah, I am uniquely qualified to call out these money-hungry bloggers and pundits (Malkin, Coulter, Limbaugh) who refuse to report on the fact that Obama is illegitimate, and who may even be rooting for his reign to continue.
Sins of omission are every bit as grave as sins of commission, and protecting income or assets is not a valid excuse for concealing the truth. Michelle, Ann C. and Rush may be able to buy their way out of the country when the poop hits the prop, but they won’t be able to buy their way out of their Particular Judgments.
+++
Like Barnhardt’s blog, Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) also does not make any money for its owner (Dr. Eowyn) or our hardworking team of writers. FOTM does not solicit ads, nor do we have ads on this site. But FOTM’s host, WordPress, does occasionally insert an ad into one of our posts — which FOTM writers don’t see but you, dear reader, do. FOTM has no control over it, nor do we derive even a penny from those WordPress-inserted ads.
Like Barnhardt, I’ve also been told if FOTM were to go the commercial route, with total “hits” or views of over 4,373,000 in a mere 2 years and 5 months, we’d probably make thousands of dollars a month in ad revenue. But I had made a decision at FOTM’s inception on December 23, 2009, that this blog will remain non-commercial for the same reason as Barnhardt’s: I want our writers to speak the truth, unimpeded by fears of offending ad sponsors.
And that is why I laugh whenever some drive-by troll or an outraged reader goes into a hissy fit and threatens that he or she will no longer read FOTM. That threat is an empty one because it makes no difference to us: FOTM doesn’t live or die by how many hits we get. So if someone goes into a snit and threatens to forever leave FOTM, it’s not our loss. The loss is wholly yours!

At Last, Keith Olbermann Fired

 

A BKeyser design


MSNBC has fired Keith Olbermann — that rabidly leftwing, overpaid “newsman” who doesn’t even feign a pretense at objectivity. Just two years ago, the cable network had signed him to a 4-year contract, reportedly for $30 million.
Paul Farhi of the Washington Post reports today (Jan 22, 2011):

Keith Olbermann, the combative left-leaning anchor of MSNBC’s most popular program, “Countdown,” surprised viewers Friday night by announcing that the show would be his last. Olbermann said he had been told by MSNBC that the cable network was ending his contract.

Neither the network nor Olbermann publicly cited a reason for his abrupt departure, but that hasn’t stopped Washington Post’s reporter, the fawning Farhi, from engaging in some fanciful speculation — that it was because Olbermann made campaign contributions to three political candidates, in violation of an NBC News policy that prohibits political contributions by its employees without prior approval. Olbermann was suspended for two days, then returned to the air publicly unapologetic about his behavior, expressing his disdain for MSNBC’s decision.
Then Farhi further speculated that Olbermann’s dismissal may have something to do with the pending takeover of MSNBC’s parent company, NBC Universal, by Comcast, the cable and Internet giant.
Blah, blah, blah….
What the fawning Farhi omits to inform Washington Post readers is this: Olbermann pulls in fewer viewers than any of the news personalities on FoxNews. Here’s Drudge Report on the cable news stats for Thursday, January 20, 2011:

Notice to Boehner: We Birthers Will Never Give Up

 

We Obama truth-seekers, whom the MSM deride as “birthers,” are patriots who love and respect the Constitution because it is not just our founding document but the highest law of the land. We fully know how thin and fragile the veneer of civilization is which alone separates us from the maw of chaos and the abyss. It is the rule of law — not of man — that holds civil order and civilization itself together.
To that end, we Obama truth-seekers hold sacred the Constitution’s stipulation of the necessary qualifications for the office of the presidency. Article II, Section 1 says: 

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

But the person variously named Barack Barry Hussein Steven Dunham Soetoro Obama has not produced the necessary documentation certifying he is a Natural Born Citizen (NBC). Even leaving aside the matter of his birth place, the very fact that when Obama was born in 1961, his biological father, Barack Obama Sr., was not a U.S. citizen but a British citizen (Kenya being a British colony at the time), would disqualify him. For there is a clear, concise definition of the term “Natural Born Citizen” in Vattel’s Law of Nations which was the principal legal reference book used by the Founding Fathers in writing the Constitution (h/t fellow Free Speech!):

“The natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens…it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

From the beginning — the 2008 presidential year — World Net Daily has waged a tireless battle to inform us about the eligibility issue and sponsoring public campaigns of awareness, including billboards. In that battle, World Net Daily was almost all alone. The liberal MSM ignored, suppressed and mocked us. Even more reprehensible are the news media that are supposed to be “on our side” — FoxNews and its talking heads Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck (who called birthers “dumb”) — who also ignored and dismissed us.
Finally, the eligibility question is getting steam despite the concerted media mockery and suppression. Recently, Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times said that people around the White House, Democratic circles, and the liberal media – including senior top editors — all know there’s something there about Obama’s birth eligibility but are afraid to pursue the matter. Yesterday, a very brave woman single-handedly brought the eligibility question to the attention of the American people when she interrupted the House reading of the Constitution by yelling “Except Obama!” at precisely the point when Rep. Frank Perone was reading Article II, Section I that presidents must be naturally born U.S. citizens in order to be eligible for that office.
The woman, Theresa Cao, 48, was removed from the House by Capitol police, arrested and charged with unlawful conduct and disrupting Congress. She is now released from police custody.
Thank you, Theresa! Chroniclers of our time will record your courage and the name Theresa Cao will forever be remembered.
What a contrast this brave woman is from the spineless newly elected House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). The Hill reports that in an interview on NBC Nightly News yesterday after “the incident,” Boehner reacted to the outburst and said he believed Obama is a U.S. citizen:

“The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there. That’s good enough for me.”

Boehner is covering his and his fellow political class’s asses. None other than the Congressional Research Office has admitted that Congress failed to vett Obama’s presidential candidacy because no law requires them to do so, conveniently forgetting that the Constitution itself is the highest law of the land. (See also “Obama Eligibility Is Now a Conspiracy“)
Shame on you, Congressman Boehner! It may be “good enough” for you, but it sure ain’t “good enough” for us, the American people!
You keep up your pusillanimous spinelessness and We the People will get rid of you, too.
Count on it.
