So how's that war with North Korea coming along?

Go ahead make a move, I dare you.
Courtesy of ABC News:  

North Korea's deputy U.N. ambassador accused the United States on Monday of turning the Korean Peninsula into "the world's biggest hotspot" and creating "a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment." 

Kim In Ryong told a news conference that "if the U.S. dares opt for a military action," North Korea "is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the U.S." 

He said the Trump administration's deployment of the Carl Vinson nuclear carrier task group to waters off the Korean Peninsula again "proves the U.S. reckless moves for invading the DPRK have reached a serious phase of its scenario." 

Kim stressed that U.S.-South Korean military exercises being staged now are the largest-ever "aggressive war drill" aimed at his country, formally the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. 

"The prevailing grave situation proves once again that the DPRK was entirely just when it increased in every way its military capabilities for self-defense and pre-emptive attack with a nuclear force as a pivot," he said.

Yep rising paranoia, highly agitated saber rattling, and the overwhelming fear of losing face in front of one's people, the very recipe for a disaster.

So has Trump's careless posturing had any positive impact in curbing North Korea's missile testing?

Courtesy of the BBC: 

North Korea will continue to test missiles, a senior official has told the BBC in Pyongyang, despite international condemnation and growing military tensions with the US. 

"We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis," Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol told the BBC's John Sudworth. 

He said that an "all-out war" would result if the US took military action.

So that would be a "No" then.

And how are the Chinese and Russians handling all of this?

Courtesy of the Salt Lake Tribune:

China and Russia have dispatched intelligence-gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is heading toward waters near the Korean Peninsula, multiple sources of the Japanese government revealed to The Yomiuri Shimbun. 

It appears that both countries aim to probe the movements of the United States, which is showing a stance of not excluding military action against North Korea. The Self-Defense Forces are strengthening warning and surveillance activities in the waters and airspace around the area, according to the sources. 

Yes but surely the American people are feeling safer having such an aggressive commander-in-chief in charge of our security, right?

Courtesy of Fox News: 

As tensions with North Korea mount, Hawaii lawmakers anxiously are dusting off the state’s emergency plans in preparation for the possibility – however remote – of an attack on the islands. 

The plans were last revisited in the 1980s. But the Hawaii House Public Safety Committee on Thursday formally called for the state’s defense agency to repair their hundreds of Cold War-era fallout shelters and restock them with medical supplies, food and water. 

"They haven't been updated since 1985," Rep. Matt LoPresti, a Democrat who serves as vice chair of that committee, told Hawaii News Now. “I was 11 years old when they were last updated. Many of the buildings that are on the fallout shelter list don't exist anymore.”

So the North Koreans are agitated, the Chinese and Russians are on high alert, and the American citizens of Hawaii are in fear for their very lives.

Yep, we're fucked.

      Neil Gorsuch crashes and burns in first day of Supreme Court hearings

      Neil Gorsuch spent his confirmation hearings refusing to answer questions about nearly any aspect of case law, arguing that it would have been presumptive for him to do so. After his startlingly humiliating performance during his first day on the bench yesterday, it’s possible his earlier reticence to answer the Senators’ questions was because he didn’t understand them. As it turns out, Gorsuch is a simpleton with almost childlike understanding of the law – and the existing Justices on both sides of the spectrum already seem to have concluded he’s an idiot.

      Even as the other Supreme Court Justices were trying to decipher a series of complex and interlocking statutes that were in conflict with each other, NPR reports that Neil Gorsuch kept merely saying things like it would be “a lot easier if we just follow the text of the statute” (link). Even the arguably most conservative existing Justice, Samuel Alito, pushed back against Gorsuch by pointing out that “This is unbelievably complicated.” Justice Sonia Sotomayor, an outspoken liberal, agreed.

      But Gorsuch kept suggesting they simply follow the “plain language” and didn’t seem to understand that there was no way to do so, because the court had to decide which of the conflicting statutes overruled the other. This is a remarkable turn of events. The late Antonin Scalia was such a conservative extremist that no one with a soul could understand the moral basis for his positions. But he had the intellect to make sophisticated arguments in support of his amoral stances. And now he’s been replaced by Neil Gorsuch who, despite being roughly as conservative, appears to have only a small fraction of the intellect or depth.

      And yet the Republicans in the Senate essentially cheated just to ram Neil Gorsuch through confirmation hearings – and they were only able to get away with it because the major media outlets treated the shallow, vapid, and poorly spoken Gorsuch as if he were a reasonable choice. Donald Trump may have set the bar so low with his consistently incompetent and often deranged behavior that his choice of Gorsuch came across as reasonable by comparison, simply because Gorsuch wasn’t visibly deranged himself.

      But his confirmation hearings proved him to be wholly unqualified for the Supreme Court, and probably unqualified for the lower judge position that he already held. Because the Republicans have a majority in the Senate, and because the media failed to do its job, the Supreme Court will spend the next thirty years saddled with a new Justice who’s such a waste of a seat that it’s taken him all of one day to earn equally outspoken scorn from far smarter Justices on the left and right of the spectrum.

      *And to think we could have had Merrick Garland instead.*

      Trump Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch Gets HUMILIATED On First Day By Elena Kagan

      Welcome to the big leagues, kid.

      Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Justice only made it through Senate confirmation because Republicans changed the rules so they could complete their robbery of the seat from President Obama pick Merrick Garland.

      Neil Gorsuch now sits on the high court and his first day was Monday. And of course, just like Trump, he embarrassed himself from the get-go.

      ...But Justice Elena Kagan was quick to put Gorsuch in his place and humiliated him in the process.

      “This would be kind of a revolution,” she began. “I mean, to the extent you can have a revolution in this kind of case.”

      The room laughed as everyone recognized a good Supreme Court burn.

      So just like Donald Trump, Gorsuch is an embarrassment.

      Frankly, not only should Trump be impeached, Gorsuch should be impeached as well. He doesn’t belong in the position he currently holds. It’s clear he has no respect for Supreme Court decorum and that he will make partisan decisions regardless of precedent and the law. And Republicans are the ones to blame for this.

    13. Yes. GorSUCKS.

      He might be able to fool the GOP with is gosh and golly home spun shucks but he can't fool the other 8 justices. You better believe they have his number now.

      John Roberts is the Chief Justice and GorSUCKS is his problem now. SUCKS is going to be schooled every day for the rest of his life.

      The incompetence of SUCKS reflects on the competency of the clown who nominated him and the self-serving party that broke every rule to put him on the bench. Not that we didn't know Trump was an idiot and McConnell was an asshole.

      SUCKS will be crucified by the media every time he opens his mouth and removes all doubt. The only thing he's going to learn is to shut up like Thomas. I can't believe they found a justice even more stupid than Thomas, but Trump's right wing fascist nutjobs did.

      If this is any indication, Palin may still have a shot at a position in the Trump administration.

      Plus, tax payers are having to cover the security coverage for him and his 'entire' family which is ridiculous. They are wealthy enough to pay for their own protection. I could care less what happens to any of them to tell you the truth! "ALL" of them are not my responsibility as to paying for their secret service protection and I object!

    Donald Trump thinks North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has been in power since the nineties

    Donald Trump has parked a fleet of U.S. warships off the coast of North Korea and he’s threatening military action if the rogue nation continues its efforts toward nuclear proliferation. But it’s become fairly evident that Trump doesn’t know the name of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, instead referring to him as “this gentleman.” Worse, Trump believes that Kim and his late father are the same person.

    Intel source: in Russia scandal, Rudy Giuliani has now flipped on Donald Trump after all

    ...There are two possible scenarios at play here. One is that, after the FBI initially rebuffed Rudy Giuliani, it’s now circled back and given him a deal after all. This tactic is sometimes used to try motivate a suspect to be more cooperative once they’re finally given the deal they’re asking for. The other possible scenario is that after the FBI rejected Giuliani’s request for a deal, the New York State Attorney General may have instead given him a deal. The source hasn’t stated whether Giuliani’s deal was with state or federal law enforcement.

    The second scenario is given credibility by the fact that Rudy Giuliani’s most well-documented legal troubles stem from his attempt at interfering with a case that the New York State Attorney General’s office is bringing against a Turkish businessman named Reza Zarrab (source: NBC News). So it makes sense that he would be seeking leniency from the State of New York, and willing to give up Trump in the process. This serves to further demonstrate how far along both the state and federal Trump-Russia investigations are progressing behind the scenes.

    San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego will be prime targets of North Korea. Next will be Seattle. They'll need to nuke all of the major ports and harbors so that the U.S. Navy will have to go through the Panama Canal. Another juicy target.

    We don't know the range of North Korea's missiles. Just because that one blew up doesn't mean they are incapable of delivering a bomb on target.
