China Moves To Cut Off 
North Korea Access By Land And Air
{rickwells.us} ~ Either nuclear power North Korea hasn’t solved the ancient mystery of the highway construction pilot vehicle... or there’s more to the story than they’re telling us about the closure of a major bridge and highway link between China and North Korea. The Chinese  reportedly closed the Sino-Korean Friendship Bridge, crossing the Yalu River at the Chinese city of Dandong due to road repairs being conducted on the North Korean approach road. The announcement made on Friday characterized it as a temporary closure. Even if Kim Jong-un is crazy, he’s not stupid and the neither is the rest of the world. There’s no legitimate reason for him to force China to cut off access to his country merely to permit road repairs to be conducted... https://rickwells.us/china-cut-korea-land-air/

Palestinians vs. Trump: The Battle Begins
by Bassam Tawil
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ Over the past year, the Palestinians have managed to keep under wraps their true feelings about US President Donald Trump and his Middle East envoys and advisors... In all likelihood, they were hoping that the new US administration would endorse their vision for "peace" with Israel. Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas ensured that his spokesmen and senior officials spoke with circumspection about Trump and his Middle East advisors and envoys. The top brass of the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah felt it was worth giving Trump time to see if he was indeed gullible enough to be persuaded to throw Israel under the bus and fork over their demands. Well, that bus has long passed...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11431/palestinians-trump-rejection

Goodbye Net Neutrality; Hello Competition
Jeffrey A. Tucker
 by  Jeffrey A. Tucker
{fee.org} ~ At long last, with the end of “net neutrality,” competition could soon come to the industry that delivers Internet services to you... You might be able to pick among a range of packages, some minimalist and some maximalist, depending on how you use the service. Or you could choose a package that charges based only on what you consume, rather than sharing fees with everyone else. Internet socialism is dead; long live market forces. With market-based pricing finally permitted, we could see new entrants to the industry because it might make economic sense for the first time to innovate. The growing competition will lead, over the long run, to innovation and falling prices. Consumers will find themselves in the driver’s seat rather than crawling and begging for service and paying whatever the provider demands...  https://fee.org/articles/goodbye-net-neutrality-hello-competition/u...

GOP Getting Killed by Distribution Tables
by CHRIS EDWARDS
{cato.org} ~ Republicans are letting themselves get cornered by slanted tables appearing to show the rich gaining the most from tax reform... The official distribution tables are not presenting GOP tax changes in a fair manner, as I discuss here. But Fox News also? On Sunday, Fox displayed this image, and host Eric Shawn asked Rep. Jim Renacci, “…if you make more than a million, if you’re a richie, you save $21,000 … Do you think that’s fair and appropriate?” Renacci did not do a good job of pushing back...  https://www.cato.org/blog/gop-getting-killed-distribution-tables?mk...

RINO-McCain Had A Ridiculous
Explanation For Orthopedic Boot On Wrong Foot
{rickwells.us} ~ We’ve been told by RINO-John McCain and those around him that the walking boot he’s been sporting lately is due to a recent injury to his Achilles tendon on his right foot... Or is it his left foot? Who can keep track of the lies coming out of RINOville these days? On Wednesday RINO-McCain tweeted a photo of himself wearing his boot while sitting next to his wife on a bench, complete with his dog at his feet. It didn’t take long for folks to realize that the boot was on his left foot instead of the right that has been the location of his torn tendon in past reports and where he’s been wearing it. While the first inclination is that the photo was possibly reversed a quick check of the buttons on his jacket proved the pictures were in their correct and genuine orientation, and that the boot was in fact on the opposite foot...  https://rickwells.us/mccain-boot-wrong-foot/

ROY MOORE & ME
by Burt Prelutsky

Since I keep coming back to the public lynching of Roy Moore, I should probably establish a couple of facts. One, I despise pedophiles. I would make it a capital crfime. But even when I was much younger, back in the 50s and 60s, I did not consider teenage girls as innocents who were being preyed upon. Today, that is even less the case, thanks to society’s acceptance that pre-adolescents must be immersed in sex education classes and that teens and pre-teens must have easy access to birth-control pills and devices.

There is even a large segment of the population that has campaigned for the right of young girls to have abortions, even without the knowledge or consent of their parents.

When I was in high school, the girls I knew preferred dating guys in college. When I was in college, many of them had their eyes on professors and assistant professors. Both sexes prey, but in different ways. And if the Bible is to be believed, it has been ever thus.

The other thing I should confess is that I am not a fan of Roy Moore. If I lived in Alabama, I would have voted for Luther Strange, Moore’s opponent in the Republican primary. I would have voted for Strange because he was a loyal ally of Trump’s and my only concern with Senate Republicans is that they support the President’s agenda.

I have never been impressed with Moore. For one thing, although I tend to favor the religiously-inclined, I have never liked people who came across as holier-than-thou. To me, it appears that Moore has made a career of it. I wouldn’t even like a pastor who came across as if he had God’s personal good housekeeping seal of approval, let alone a judge or a politician.

I just wanted to make my position perfectly clear before stating I would vote for Moore even if I believed he had been tad too sexually-aggressive four decades ago. I want a senator who will support the things I wanted to see done when I voted for Donald Trump last year. If Alabama elects a Democrat, the GOP margin in the Senate will be cut in half and so will my hopes.

As I have written in earlier articles, I don’t believe that sexual predators suddenly get over their compulsion, and yet even in the current witch-hunt, nobody has come forward to accuse Moore of improper behavior in his 40s, 50s or 60s. That certainly has not been the case with the likes of liar-Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK, Kevin Spacey or even George H.W. Bush.

If Moore has actually lived a sexually blameless life since the late 1960s, shouldn’t religious Alabamans who believe in redemption and second chances be moved to vote for him?

For me, the worst part of the scandal is the hypocrisy. You can cut it with a spoon.

RINO-Mitch McConnell, who has gone through life looking like he’s constantly sucking on a sour pickle and looking to chase some kid off his front lawn, has suggested that if elected, Roy Moore should not be allowed to take his place in such an august body as the U.S. Senate.

Pardon me, RINO-Mitch, but are we talking about the same U.S. Senate that allowed Barack liar-nObama to be seated after he illegally disclosed sealed divorce documents in order to defeat his Republican opponent? The same Senate that lionized Robert Byrd, a former Grand Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan, and Ted Kennedy, who left his young girlfriend to drown while he ran home to get the Kennedy machine up and running to preserve his political future?

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado said: “If Moore refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate.” Not since Abbott and Costello introduced their “Who’s on First” act on the vaudeville stage has anyone delivered a line that funny with a straight face.

● A reader, taking advantage of my offer to answer any and all questions, wanted to know why Democrats always circle the wagons when one of their own is attacked, whereas Republicans inevitably form a circular firing squad.

I replied: “The Democrats are united in their agenda. They all want guns confiscated. They all want open borders and a red carpet rolled out for Muslims.  They all play identity politics. They all want higher taxes so they can bribe their base with our money, and then calling the bribes ‘entitlements.’

“Republicans, on the other hand, are all over the place. A Republican congressman in Texas, Utah or Oklahoma, has more in common with a Martian than a Republican in California, Illinois, Maine or New York. Some want liar-nObamaCare repealed, others don’t; some want Trump’s wall built, others don’t; some will vote for the tax bill, a great many won’t.

“Heck, does any Republican think that Rudy Giuliani, Trey Gowdy or Jeanine Pirro, would be the same sort of namby-pamby attorney general as Jeff Sessions?” 

● Strictly as a cost-saving move, I would suggest that all the Democrats in the House and Senate hand over their proxies to Nancy Pulosi and Chuck clown-Schumer. Then they could go home, spend more time with their families and possibly take on second careers as school crossing guards or department store mannequins.

Inasmuch as they all vote as a unit, there’s really no reason for the American taxpayer, including Democarts, to be responsible for picking up the tab for their staffs, guards and travel expenses.

● Just in case you were wondering how demented America has become, Glamour magazine, which in years gone by stuck to stuff like fashion and cosmetics, recently decided that one of their Women of the Year was Linda Sersour. She wasn’t honored in spite of promoting Sharia law and mocking women who advocate against female mutilation, but because of it.

GQ, which is years gone by stuck to stuff like fashion, cosmetics and promoting purses for men, decided to end the suspense by naming as its Citizen of the Year … Colin Kaepernick.

I suppose they wanted to get the jump on Time magazine just in case the left-wing rag decided to name the kneeler their Man of the Year.

● But there’s another issue that has arisen from the sex brouhaha. Although I can see where a young child who has been molested could be coerced into silence by threats to her or one of her loved ones, I have no compassion for teenagers or adult women who remain silent, thereby enabling their predators to prey on others. Even if those attacking Weinstein or Moore are all now telling the truth, they should not be praised for their courage; they should be condemned for their years of selfishness and cowardice.

Also, there is the matter of a double-standard. Not just between the way that Democrats and Republicans react to the outing of their political heroes, but to the way society looks upon female predators. Although school teachers who take up with teenage boys will be arrested, the boys, who are inevitably consenting partners, are regarded as victims only by their parents, or at least their mothers; their status among their peers verges on the heroic.

And what about all the female celebrities who take up with guys half their age?  How long has it been since Cher, Demi Moore, Madonna or Jennifer Lopez, had sex with anyone over 30?  They even have a cute name for these women.  They’re called cougars.   Men who carry on in similar fashion are labeled predators or ridiculed as old goats.

● Recently, Bret Baier initiated a segment called “Whatever Happened To…?” in which Fox News conducts a follow-up to a story that captured America’s attention at some point in the past.

Although I have never received a response to a comment or question I sent to Fox, hope springs eternal. Last week, I wrote to ask whatever happened to Elian Gonzalez.  When last seen, the little boy was cowering in a closet while one of Attorney General Janet Reno’s thugs held a gun to his face.

Reno, with liar-Bill Clinton’s blessing, then deported the kid back to Fidel Castro’s Cuba.

It was, when you think about it, the last time a Democrat ever wanted to see a Latino returned to his nation of origin.

I have always wondered what became of him. And considering my luck with Fox, perhaps one of you will succeed where I failed.

● Finally, it occurred to me that it keeps getting harder and harder to find large bands of patriots. On occasion, I have joined some local GOP group, but the honeymoon inevitably fades when I discover that they are little more than fiefdoms controlled by someone who, like a typical Communist tyrant, gets to be president-for life, even if the members all claim to support term limits for other politicians.

It now seems that if you want to see a sizeable numer of patriots in one place, you should go to a rodeo, a NASCAR event or a baseball game. 

If, however, you’re curious to see what a patriot-free zone looks like, I’d advise you to go to a college campus, an NFL or NBA locker-room or a liar-Hillary Clinton book-signing.

ALERT ALERT

‘WikiLeaks Can’t Protect Their Sources’
Is The CIA About To Reveal Names Of DNC Leakers

The saga surrounding who leaked sensitive DNC documents to WikiLeaks may take an interesting turn, hints former CIA officer Fred Rustmann.

WND reports:

The Central Intelligence Agency knows the identities of the people who leaked DNC emails to the whistleblower organization WikiLeaks during the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, a former CIA officer contends.

Fred Rustmann, who served as an operations officer in the CIA’s National Clandestine Service for 24 years and was a member of the agency’s elite Senior Intelligence Service, said in an interview with WND that WikiLeaks’ ongoing release of classified information is “disgusting.” 

“WikiLeaks says they want to protect their sources – Julian Assange said that he wouldn’t reveal his sources, but he would say that it wasn’t the Russians,” Rustmann said. “But the agency knows a lot of the information. I suspect they may have a pretty good idea of who provided that information to WikiLeaks.”

Rustmann’s comments raise questions about potential plans for the CIA to reveal the names of those who allegedly leaked DNC documents to WikiLeaks.

Recently, the CIA made a veiled threat to WikiLeaks in respect to protecting their sources.

“WikiLeaks may think they are protecting those who provide them with classified information & other secrets, but they should not be certain of that,” the CIA statement said. 

In a statement to WND, Robert L. Deitz, a former advisor to CIA head Michael Hayden, called the threat “unprecedented.”

“It’s pretty unusual for the CIA to make a threat to WikiLeaks so publicly. It’s pretty unprecedented; one ought to be skeptical about this. That is not the way that CIA officials should operate,” Deitz said.

“This is the kind of thing, if somebody were to make this kind of threat it would come out of a different organization, DOD, State or maybe the White House. Traditionally it would certainly not come out of the CIA,” Deitz added.

WikiLeaks is in the news after both CNN and CBS falsely reported the group granted Donald Trump Jr. access to future leaks.

However, WikiLeaks had tweeted a link to the information days before the email reached Trump Jr.’s inbox. The fake news media claim this was stone cold proof of collusion, as WikiLeaks has long been smeared as a Kremlin puppet.
