Watch: This North Korean Cheerleader Video Will Be The Creepiest Thing You Watch This Week

Leftists are absolutely fawning over the North Korean ‘cheerleaders’. But what they find entertaining — we find downright terrifying. Check it out…

The Media (D) has been filled with moral grandstanding journalists praising the despotic North Korean regime because they made a half-hearted attempt at diplomacy with South Korea conveniently timed near the Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Nevermind that North Korea could be doing this for several reasons:

  • Visible propaganda on the world stage
  • Cashing in on the anti-Trump sentiment
  • The sanctions imposed at the insistence of President Trump are finally hurting them
  • President Trump’s tough language (and his tweets) to Little Rocket Man have terrified and humiliated the continually posturing regime

But do you think they’re going to report on that? Nah.

It’s much more important to focus on the cutesy ‘cheerleaders’ with their synchronized dance moves.

They’re the early breakout hit of the Winter Olympics, a singing, clapping — and perfectly matching — troupe of red-clad North Korean cheerleaders who march to their own kind of drummer.

Watch them in action, and it’s hard to turn away for reasons that are somewhat hard to explain. See them steal the show like they did in the unified Korean hockey game Saturday night and it’s easy to understand why they outnumber North Korean athletes 10-1 at these games.

More than 200 of them sang and smiled all night long, carrying the show long after the game was decided. Then, for good measure, they kept on going for 15 minutes after it was over before finally marching off in two perfectly formed long lines.

Nope, that’s not creepy. Just watch them as they file out:

Ok, so those are Stormtroopers, but it’s probably not far off.

Campy, yes. For many observers from outside North Korea, it’s kind of creepy, too.

The fact remains that behind the smiles they represent a totalitarian state that is trying to produce nuclear weapons as well as it produces synchronized spectacles. Their routines are for the glory of dictator Kim Jong Un or one of his predecessors, even if some of their songs have been modified so to not offend at the Olympics.

Watch:

Ummm…. I don’t know about you, but that freaky choreographed display makes me think of this scene from Shrek:

Many on Twitter also criticized the troupe as pure propaganda for a dictator, and wondered if they were coerced into performing.

Kim runs a ruthless regime, but the women who make up the cheerleading squad — Kim’s wife is herself a former member — are reportedly mostly the daughters of the elite upper class who are often college students selected for their looks, musical skills and family standing. They sometimes give full musical performances with clarinets and other instruments, and often use props in their choreographed cheers.

“Women with family members missing or living abroad do not qualify, as they could pose potential flight risks,” the Korea Herald reported.

The women cheered for 2 hours with smiles pasted on their faces. Sounds like they were having a blast! (Oh, that’s probably not the best phrase to use in connection with North Korea.)

This journalist did note that it was hard to tell if the cheerleaders were actually having fun.

It was all in good fun, at least on the part of the spectators. Whether the cheerleaders were having any fun was hard to figure out since their smiles seemed frozen on their faces and their expressions never changed.

In dictatorships like North Korea, the girl with the least authentic smile is shot first — or sent to work in the horrific forced-labor camp. But the Media (D) must have forgotten about that.

CNN Praises North Korea’s Despotic 1st Family – The Internet Takes CNN To Truth City

Their brother – the one little rocket man murdered with nerve gas — was not available for comment. If Stalin were alive today, our guess is that CNN would pick his side over Trump. They’re not even TRYING to hide it anymore.

Before we go further, we may want to remember just who we are talking about. This isn’t some Mugabe-level tinpot dictator. North Korea is a whole other level.

His country is the world’s largest prison camp, which an Auschwitz survior (and judge on the International Court of Justice) has described as ‘WORSE’ than Nazi Germany.

Not only did Kim Jong Un kill his brother with Nerve Gas in an Airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but he killed his Uncle, too. He’s also been known to shoot those who displease him with anti-aircraft guns.

Kim Jong-un had 11 musicians executed with anti-aircraft guns and orders aides to pick out sex slaves from North Korea’s schools, a defector has claimed.
…They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.
“And then after that military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay.”

THAT is who we are dealing with. And the Media(D) STILL loathe Trump (and in this case, his proxy, Pence) so bitterly that they cannot help but praise his sister… who may have run things briefly while he was ill some years ago.

Here’s what they said about his sister:

If “diplomatic dance” were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold.

With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.

Riiiiight. And ‘maybe Mousellini had a great sense of humor — when you really got to know him’.

Nope. We’re not buying what you’re shoveling.

And neither were ‘the interwebz’.

He wasn’t done calling out the media in their fawning over dictators.

Brit Hume’s reaction was a lot like ours:

And rounding out the Stalin and Moussilini references…

Ouch.

Good thing they’re the ‘most trusted name in news’ or people might start to suspect there’s something a little bit ‘Pravda-ish’ about these guys.

Invasion: Sweden Unable to Process Migrant Rape Cases Because of Backlog


By Benjamin Arie | January 29, 2018 at 5:44pm

“Diversity is our strength,” or so the left constantly claims. That bumper-sticker view of the world is used to justify endless immigration from decidedly non-Western cultures… but now reality is starting to set in.

Sweden’s experiment with mass Islamic immigration is definitely bringing “diversity,” but it’s much more violent than liberals want to admit.

The left-leaning European country “has been experiencing an unprecedented surge of gang shootings, bombings and sexual assaults,” reported the  U.K. Times.

“In Malmö, where a fifth of the 340,000 inhabitants are under 18, children as young as 14 roam the streets with Kalashnikov assault rifles and bulletproof vests,” the newspaper reported. “The average age of gang members is 22, the vast majority of them hailing from migrant families.”

The situation is becoming so bad that Swedish officials are now admitting that they don’t have the resources to investigate rapes immediately, because violent gang crimes are so prevalent.

“We are forced to choose between two evils,” police told the Times.

Government officials and the media may try to dance around the issue, but the simple fact is that much of the rising crime is linked to groups of immigrants, many from Muslim nations.

“For a long time the Swedish establishment played down the decay of immigrant-dominated suburbs, but it can no longer ignore the explosion of violence,” reported The Times.

“Statistics published last week revealed the percentage of women who reported being victims of sex crimes rose from 1.4% in 2012 to 4.1% in 2016. In 2014 a study on the geography of outdoor rape in Stockholm found two-thirds of the suspects were non-Swedish citizens,” the paper elaborated.

In many ways, what is happening in Sweden is a microcosm of trends here in the United States.

Liberals who claim to stand for feminism also promote the mass importation of cultures that have appalling track records on women’s rights — and the same leftists who let them in are then “shocked” at the results.

“Our government declared itself the world’s first feminist government, yet they have quietly abandoned women,” stated Paulina Neuding, a Swedish author who is speaking out about the impact of mass immigration.

“There is mounting evidence that large-scale migration of men from extremely patriarchal cultures is limiting women’s freedom,” she continued. Let’s be honest:

It really isn’t that hard to understand. Despite the posturing of liberals, not all cultures are the same, and not every group of people has the same values. Some are closely compatible with Western values and do well in countries like Sweden.

Many others, however, have no desire to assimilate but see the West as a target to exploit and dominate. It’s the right of every country to carefully decide whom to let in, and whom to politely — or forcefully — turn away.

This may not look nice on a bumper sticker, but it is reality.

Trump says Palestinian aid is ‘on the table’. “That money is not going to them, unless they sit down and negotiate peace.”

Trump and Netanyahu

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Thursday, President Trump called out the Palestinian leadership for their entitled attitude about receiving U.S. aid, along with their refusal to meet with Vice President Mike Pence.

President Trump made the comments as he was meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the major conference. The two world leaders expressed gratitude for the repaired U.S.-Israel alliance.

Netanyahu thanked Trump for standing up for Israel against the United Nations’ “house of slander.” Trump praised Israel for standing with the U.S. He expressed concern over potential waste in hundreds of millions in aid money to the Palestinians, after they “disrespected us” by refusing to meet with the vice president.

The president then issued an ultimatum to the Palestinians:

“That money is on the table, and that money is not going to them, unless they sit down and negotiate peace. Because I can tell you that Israel does want to make peace, and they’re going to have to want to make peace, too.”

At the same time, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley arrived at U.N. headquarters Thursday with a message to the Palestinians: The White House’s patience with their leadership is running thin. Haley argued that the “single most important element” for Israeli-Palestinian peace is “leaders who have the will to do what’s needed to achieve peace.”

Haley took Abbas to task for his “outrageous” anti-Israel, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, saying they do not represent a person “with the courage and the will to seek peace.

‘Outrageous’: Nikki Haley Just Sent Palestinian President a Brutal Message

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday for indulging in “outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories” regarding Israel.Image result for nikki haley us ambassador

Delivering her remarks at a U.N. Security Council meeting, Haley slammed Abbas for a speech he gave earlier this month, in which the Palestinian leader strongly criticized both Israel and the United States.

In that speech, Abbas said he did not want the U.S. to lead peace talks between Israel and Palestine. He also called the peace plan that the Trump administration is currently working on a “slap in the face,” Fox News reported.

But Abbas wasn’t done. In his two-hour-long address, he referenced events from centuries ago in an attempt to indicate that the Jewish state is nothing more than a “colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness.”

“The Jews were used as a tool under the concept of the promised land — call if whatever you want. Everything has been made up,” he added, according to The New York Times.

Haley was having none of it. Responding to Abbas’ “outrageous and discredited” ideas, she suggested that he does not have “courage” or “will” to seek a lasting peace.

“He rejected any American role in peace talks. He insulted the American president. He called for suspending recognition of Israel,” Haley said. 

“He invoked an ugly and fictional past, reaching back to the 17th century to paint Israel as a colonialist project engineered by European powers.” 

A speech that indulges in outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories is not the speech of a person with the courage and will to seek real peace.”

Haley also contrasted Abbas to former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, who traveled to Israel in 1977 — a visit that eventually helped facilitate peace between Egypt and Israel. The U.N. ambassador referred to Sadat as someone who was “willing to step forward, acknowledge hard truths and make compromises.”

“Where is the Palestinian Anwar Sadat?” she asked.

While emphasizing that the U.S. is “eager” for a peace deal to be reached between Israel and Palestine, she warned that America “will not chase after a Palestinian leadership that lacks what’s needed to achieve peace.” 

Haley’s remarks on Israel came the same day President Donald Trump said the U.S. might withhold aid for Palestine unless they “sit down and negotiate peace.”

“When they disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see them and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support — tremendous numbers, numbers that nobody understands — that money is on the table,” Trump said from Davos, Switzerland, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side.

“And that money’s not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace.

Interactive Nuke Map: Would You Survive a Direct Hit to Your City?


Reported By Martin Walsh | January 24, 2018 at 11:53am

While North Korea has frequently threatened to launch nuclear missiles at the United States, the U.S. has vowed to defend itself at all costs. As such, many may not be aware of how powerful and deadly a nuclear attack would be if it ever occurred, especially on our own shores.

The website NuclearSecrecy.com features an interactive nuclear map that allows viewers to visually see the effects certain nuclear attacks would have on an area.

On the website, there’s an interactive map of the United States. A column on the right side of the page allows users to fill in certain information to visualize how deadly and powerful a nuclear attack would be. Users can fill in a location and select a certain type of nuclear bomb, as well as other effects associated with the aftermath of a hypothetical attack. After imputing the information in the three sections, the user clicks the “detonate” button. Then, a visualization tool will show the full effects of the explosion.

For example, plugging in New York City, New York, “North Korean Weapon tested in 2013 (10 kt),” and “casualties,” the interactive map indicates that an estimated 181,770 fatalities and 504,940 injuries could occur from the bomb. It will also display the scope of the bomb in terms of how far it will expand, which provides a chilling inside look at how powerful nuclear weapons can be.

While the interactive map is for fun and allows users to plug in a variety of information to see how forceful certain nuclear attacks would be, it provides a very interesting perspective on the importance of preventing the use of such devastating devices.

If a nuclear bomb North Korea tested in 2013 can kill nearly 200,000 people, imagine what they may be capable of launching today. This underscores why President Donald Trump has taken a tough approach with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, who has advanced the rogue regime’s nuclear capabilities for years.

Trump has made it clear that while the U.S. wants to avoid a conflict, we are determined to remain the most powerful nation in the world.

Our president has promised to rain down “fire and fury” against North Korea and has vowed to protect the U.S. at all costs. This has come as North Korea has issued several threats to attack the U.S. and our Pacific territory of Guam.

After months of North Korean missile launches and Kim Jong Un’s promises to destroy the United States, Trump has made it clear to North Korea that he will protect the U.S. and its allies.

Hopefully the interactive nuclear map will inform people just how devestating a nuclear attack would be if it were to ever hit the United States, and liberals will finally understand why Trump is doing everything he can to put “Rocket Man” in his place and ensure the U.S. will always be protected.

Soviet Leader Abandoned Communism After Walking Into a US Grocery Store


Reported By V Saxena | January 13, 2018 at 12:46pm

Very few people know this, but one of the most famous Soviet officials in Russian history originally learned of the many advantages of capitalism at a regular ol’ Randalls grocery store nearly three decades ago.

In 1989, then-Communist Party of the Soviet Union member Boris Yeltsin traveled to the United States to visit the Johnson Space Center in Texas, according to the Houston Chronicle.

While in Houston for the visit, he also stopped by a Randalls grocery store, where he “roamed the aisles of Randall’s nodding his head in amazement,” according to an account of the visit written by then-Chronicle reporter Stefanie Asin. He further told his fellow comrades who followed him to America for the visit that if the lines of starving men, women and children in Russia were to see the conditions of America’s supermarkets, “there would be a revolution.”

In photos of the visit reportedly taken by the Chronicle, Yeltsin could be seen “marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.”

“Even the Politburo doesn’t have this choice. Not even Mr. Gorbachev,” he himself reportedly said, referring to the then-president of the Soviet Union.

Even after Yeltsin left Houston, he still remained transfixed by the luxuries we as Americans have always considered normal.

“For a long time, on the plane to Miami, he sat motionless, his head in his hands,” wrote biography Leon Aron in his 2000 book, “Yeltsin, A Revolutionary Life,”  basing his account on quotes from Yeltsin’s associates, according to The New York Times.

“‘What have they done to our poor people?’ he said after a long silence. On his return to Moscow, Yeltsin would confess the pain he had felt after the Houston excursion: the ‘pain for all of us, for our country so rich, so talented and so exhausted by incessant experiments.’”

Experiments in communism, to be precise.

Yeltsin reportedly admitted to these thoughts in his own autobiography, writing, “When I saw those shelves crammed with hundreds, thousands of cans, cartons and goods of every possible sort, for the first time I felt quite frankly sick with despair for the Soviet people.”

“That such a potentially super-rich country as ours has been brought to a state of such poverty! It is terrible to think of it.”

Two years later, he reportedly left the Communist Party and “began making reforms to turn the economic tide in Russia,” according to the Chronicle.

That’s putting it lightly.

Here’s how the Times describes Yeltsin’s accomplishments: “He broke up the Soviet Union. He laid the Communist Party low, removing the bottom brick from the one-party Soviet system. He upended the centralized Soviet economy that had impoverished his country, and he crushed the putsch that threatened to return the country to the old system.” He paved the way for Russia to become a capitalist/democratic society devoid of the food shortages and scarcity of the past. And all this because of a typical, everyday American grocery store. Go figure!
