Kim Jong Un The Party Animal – S Koreans 
Say He Loves His Humor And Booze 
{ rickwells.us } ~ There’s little debate over whether or not Kim Jong Un is a ruthless and brutal tyrant... but it does seem he’s one with a some normal aspects to his personality. We’re learning that when he met with the South Korean contingent for dinner, there was a lot of alcohol flowing and he actually joked about himself. Taken in addition to the surprising messaging of the N. Korean Olympic delegation, which included his sister and the “geisha cheerleaders,” we perhaps are seeing a different Kim than the squatty little dictator we’ve believed he was. Kim received two years of his education at Liebefeld-Steinhölzli Schule, a Swiss state school. He received failing grades in science, but was more adept in music and math. His dictator dad gave him an external perspective as part of his grooming process. He interacted with other foreign kids, the children of diplomats, which was also a valuable learning experience. Some of those foundational skills may now be coming into play... https://rickwells.us/kim-party-humor-booze/

Russian Spy Ship Off Georgia Coast 
by Bill Gertz
{ freebeacon.com } ~ A Russian spy ship is currently conducting surveillance operations in waters near a U.S. ballistic missile submarine base in Georgia... according to Navy officials. "We are tracking the Viktor Leonov's presence off the East Coast, much like we are aware of all vessels approaching the United States," said Navy Cmdr. Bill Speaks, a Navy spokesman. "We respect the right and freedoms of all nations to operate in international waters in accordance with international law," he added.  A military official said the Leonov, a ship known for conducting annual forays near sensitive U.S. military facilities off the East Coast, is currently operating off the Georgia coast near Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, home to U.S. nuclear missile submarines...  http://freebeacon.com/national-security/russian-spy-ship-off-georgi...

Pro-Abortion Justice Anthony Kennedy 
Will Reportedly Retire This Summer,
Replacement Could Overturn Roe 
by STEVEN ERTELT 
{ lifenews.com } ~ Christmas may have come early for the pro-life movement. Since 1973, pro-life people have been yearning for the day that a majority pro-life Supreme Court would overturn Roe v Wade... Although the high court has been closely divided over the years it has always stayed at least one vote on the pro-abortion side. Justice Anthony Kennedy is one of those votes in favor of keeping Roe vs Wade in place and its allowance for virtually unlimited abortions nationwide. But the latest news today indicates he may possibly be retiring this summer — opening the door for another justice who respects the value of human life or at least the rule of law without using the Supreme Court to invent a fictitious right to abortion... http://www.lifenews.com/2018/03/09/pro-abortion-justice-anthony-ken...

Karma For Iran As London Embassy 
Is Taken Over by Jihadists 
{ rickwells.us } ~ It’s been thirty-eight years since a mob of Iranian “students” seized the US embassy in Tehran and took the Americans inside captive... holding them for 444 days. Karma sometimes takes a while to make its way back around but today it paid the Iranians a well-deserved visit, coming to their own embassy in London. Four men have forced their way onto the Iranian embassy with only baseball bats and machetes as weapons. London police have been deployed to the site. Slogans chanted by the attackers indicate they are radical Islamists of the Sadeq Shirazi Shiite sect. The Iranian Fars News service reports that that group is supported by London, whose Mayor Khan is also a jihadi. The Iranian Ambassador to Britain, Hamid Baeedinejad, confirmed the attack. He tweeted, “A few followers of Shirazi have attacked the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Embassy in London and broke the flag mast.” He noted that they were “chanting slogans against Iranian officials.” It seems that the regime’s “death to America” tactic can be modified for use in other situations...  https://rickwells.us/karma-iran-london-embassy/

Man of Steel Tariffs 

by Nate Jackson:  President Donald Trump announced his 25% steel and 10% aluminum tariffs Thursday, a week after floating the idea. They’ll take effect in two weeks. Perhaps most importantly on the actual policy, Trump carved out exemptions for Canada and Mexico while NAFTA negotiations continue — just as we speculated he would. Trump also indicated there would be possible exemptions for other nations if reciprocal trade concessions are made.

            The economics of his tariffs, as we argued last week, are a mixed bag. While obviously the steel and aluminum industries will benefit — indeed, companies are already announcing expansion and jobs — industries dependent on steel and aluminum will suffer, jobs will be lost and many products will become more expensive.
            But those aren’t Trump’s only considerations. During his televised signing ceremony, he declared, “Today I’m defending America’s national security by placing tariffs on foreign imports of steel and aluminum.” Aside from any real national security concerns, there are two reasons for his focus. First, in order to act without Congress, he must justify it on national security grounds. Were the tariffs only for economic reasons, he’d be stuck waiting. Second, the same justification avoids World Trade Organization sanctions.
            From a strategic perspective, Trump’s tariffs are 90% “art of the deal” and 10% bluster — a shot over the bow of NAFTA nations as well as China (see North Korea for why that’s true). Trump is a dealmaker first and foremost, and he arguably knows more about business than any previous president in history — and most definitely more than many of the talkingheads churning the news-cycle rant loop about tariffs. He’s using that knowledge for the purposes of foreign policy.
            As for all the Republican blowback, it’s largely about necessary political cover in an election year. The targeted tariffs play well with Trump’s America First blue-collar base across the nation (formerly the Democrats’ base), and particularly in a few hard-hit industrial states.
            Unfortunately, as we noted Wednesday, EU officials have shrewdly targeted Harley Davidson, based in House Speaker Paul Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin, bourbon made in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky, and orange juice from Florida, the perennial swing state. That punishes Trump’s allies and voters.
            At the same time, the U.S. economy is an enormous chunk of the world economy and most of our trade partner beneficiaries will tread carefully in terms of retaliation. On balance, we’d say tariffs are a net drag on the economy, as the vehement opposition signifies, but Trump has an uncanny way of turning this kind of chaos to his advantage.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

 Kavanaugh Accuser Donated   To Hillary Clinton  10 Times,  60+ Liberal Groups 

Reportedly attempted to conceal political activity by scrubbing social media accounts

Over the weekend, a name and face were added to the previously anonymous sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is now threatening to derail his nomination. Those looking to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation certainly saved their best for last, as the prior attempts included pathetic stunts such as:

– Claiming to file perjury charges against Kavanaugh, which only Jeff Sessions would have the ability to file.

– Packing the hearings with hysterical protesters, resulting in hundreds of arrests.

– Threatening female Republicans with extortion.

– Cory Booker comparing himself to Spartacus, the escaped slave who led a revolt against the Romans.

The identity of the accuser was revealed as Christine Blasey Ford, who has agreed testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford reportedly made the allegations back in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Feinstein waited until it was close to the vote to confirm Kavanaugh before making the accusations public.

There’s a record of Ford making the accusation in a 2012 therapy session, though Kavanaugh isn’t named in the session notes that Ford gave to the press. Ford alleges that in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh entered a room drunk, pinned her to a bed, and groped her over her clothing. Kavanaugh “categorically denied” the allegations.View image on Twitter

Fin Gomez @finnygo   NEW: Statement from Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

There is a slight discrepancy in the account Ford provided in her letter to Feinstein and in her therapist’s notes, but that could simply be due to an error on her therapists part.

There are however some other questions that need to be answered which call into question Ford’s motives.

As Grabien reported, they include:

1. Why Ford deleted her public social media accounts before revealing herself.

Ford deleted all of her public social media before she came forward, making it difficult to see the advocacy and partisanship she was engaged in the time leading up to her making her allegation public. Of course, Ford may simply value her privacy, but the act of deleting her public postings will inevitably make some wonder what she didn’t want seen.

2. That Ford may have an unrelated grudge against Kavanaugh, as his mother, once a circuit court judge, ruled against Ford’s parents.

In August 1996, Christine Blasey Ford’s parents, Paula and Ralph Blasey, were foreclosed upon. Kavanaugh’s mom, Martha, was then serving as a judge on the Montgomery Country Circuit Court, and she ruled against Christine Ford’s parents.

3. That Ford is a Democrat who donates to left-wing causes, attended the anti-Trump March for Science, and previously signed an open letter challenging Trump’s border policy.

Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue.

Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “pussy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development.

There’s no statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland, where she claims that the assault happened. Rather than go to the police, Ford went to Dianne Feinstein. If her accusations are true, she should immediately file a police report against Kavanaugh and take him to trial. If she doesn’t, perhaps that’s because she knows the consequences of filing a false police report.
