Trump Doesn’t Have the Authority to Attack North Korea Without Congress | The Atlantic

“[The North Korean] regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior,” President Donald Trump said Tuesday morning. “All options are on the table.”

One option that should not be on the table is a “preventive” American military strike against North Korea without United Nations approval, public debate, and a congressional authorization.

[Ed.: As a resident of a city on the West Coast of North America, a pre-emptive strike to disable North Korea’s nuclear capabilities before he nukes LA, San Francisco or Seattle may be absolutely necessary to prevent this. It’s clear that Kim Jong-un is mentally ill and could (once they have reliable rocket technology) decide to prove that he has a functional nuclear arsenal by taking out a city on the United States west coast.

The Atlantic is a liberal, elitist organization that would probably change their tune if they lived on the Left Coast and could be nuked into oblivion by a mad man with a bad ‘do. They probably think I refer to the President of the United States but it’s just because they hate Trump so much. It’s sad that they abhor an overtly patriotic president who believes in the superiority of the USA. Oh do they miss our former Supreme Leader Obama. Makes me chuckle down deep inside.

The one thing you can’t say about Trump is that he doesn’t care about the United States – in fact, he may indeed get us into war with North Korea, but it’d be because he cares too much; even about states that didn’t vote for him.]

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen discovered a long-lost World War II warship | The Verge

On July 30th, 1945, a Japanese submarine launched a pair of torpedoes at the USS Indianapolis, sinking it in minutes and resulting in the greatest loss of life in the history of the US Navy. Since then, the final resting place of the ship has been a mystery, until Friday. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen announced that a team onboard his research vessel Petrel located the ship over 18,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

State AG disappointed as Sea-Tac prepares to enforce travel ban | MyNorthwest.com

Sea-Tac Airport will begin enforcing part of the Trump administration’s travel ban beginning Thursday. The ban affects people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. If people from those countries don’t have a bona fide connection to someone in the United States they’ll likely be turned away.

[Ed.: Ah, poor little Sideshow Bob Ferguson has to be really butt-hurt now after this spanking at the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court and we don’t expect it to get any better for the AG (AKA “Aspiring Governor”) when they makes their final ruling later in the year. The law is so stunningly clear that even liberal activists on the U.S. Supreme Court couldn’t side with this blinding display of juris-ignorance from our activist A.G. Oh, and this picture looks like a pouty Frank Burns from M*A*S*H… “Ferret Face”, totally!]

[Ed.: So, what happened to equal protection under the law? This is why “Sanctuary Cities or States” are complete folly. The guy is a drug dealer and an illegal immigrant. We should not be giving him a special pass just because he’s broken immigration law? If this was a US Citizen with a felony federal warrant, he/she would be given no special dispensation. How is that fair?]
