In today's world replete with islamic terrorists and a North Korean man-child gone mad, we need Putin's Russia as an ally NOT as an enemy.

Nikki Haley on North Korea: 'The Time for Talk is Over'
In the wake of North Korea's latest ICBM launch, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Sunday the US is not seeking a Security Council emergency session to discuss the matter.

Seeing that the North Korean regime repeatedly violates existing Security Council resolutions, there is no point in having another session and producing another resolution, according to a statement Haley released Sunday.

It states, in part:
“There is no point in having an emergency session if it produces nothing of consequence. North Korea is already subject to numerous Security Council resolutions that they violate with impunity and that are not complied with by all UN Member States.
“An additional security council resolution that does not significantly increase the international pressure on North Korea is of no value. In fact, it is worse than nothing, because it sends the message to the North Korean dictator that the international community is unwilling to seriously challenge him.
“China must decide whether it is finally willing to take this vital step. The time for talk is over. The danger the North Korean regime poses to international peace is now clear to all.”
Vice President Mike Pence echoed her sentiments, calling on China to act and saying "the era of strategic patience is over."

Collins: Trump's Threats Won't Sway My Healthcare Vote
By Solange Reyner / NEWSMAX 

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine on Sunday told CNN host Jake Tapper she wouldn't be swayed by President Donald Trump's threat to cut off funding for Obamacare payments.

"It really would be detrimental to some of the most vulnerable citizens if those payments were cut off," said Collins on "State of the Union."

"The people they benefit are the people who make 100 percent to 250 percent of the poverty rate, so we're talking about low income Americans who would be devastated if those payments were cut off," she said. "The threats to cut off those payments has contributed to the instability in the insurance market, but the first bill we should consider is how to stabilize the market and that is a key component to ensure that those payments continue to be made to benefit low-income Americans."
Trump on Saturday tweeted, "if a new healthcare bill is not approved quickly, bailouts for insurance companies and bailouts for members of Congress will end very soon!"

He was referring to cost-sharing reduction payments, which lower the amount individuals have to pay for deductibles, copayment and insurance.

Break out the champagne: State Department officials quitting over “complete and utter disdain for our expertise”

By Robert Spencer / Jihad Watch

We can only hope that with the departure of these failed State Department officials, their failed policies will be swept out along with them. Chief among these is the almost universally held idea that poverty causes terrorism. The United States has wasted uncounted (literally, because a great deal of it was in untraceable bags full […]

U.S. Muslim Leaders Promote Nationwide Protests Despite Israeli Concessions


This reveals to anyone who might not have known already what the one of the primary objectives of these Muslim groups in America really is: undermining and ultimately destroying Israel. No concessions will ever be sufficient. For these Muslim groups, they are all just stepping stones to the total destruction of Israel. That’s why Netanyahu should have held firm: his concession will only encourage more violence.

“U.S. Islamists Promote Nationwide Protests Despite Israeli Concessions,” IPT News, July 28, 2017:

In solidarity with Palestinian factions and terrorist groups, pro-Palestinian Islamist organizations in the United States are gearing up for more anti-Israel protests today, even though the original cause for their anger has been rescinded.

Israel removed metal detectors Tuesday which were installed near an entrance to Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque in response to a deadly July 14th terrorist attack. Terrorists managed to smuggle their guns into the mosque the morning of the attack. Yet Israel’s acquiescence has not silenced its main detractors.

Still, rallies planned throughout the country are being pushed by American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and Jewish Voice for Peace. Similar gatherings last week featured harsh anti-Israel rhetoric.
