Defiant North Korean Gov’t Facing Drought of The Decade, Possible Famine

To put food on the dinner table, Kim Jong Un may need to come back to the negotiating table.

When you make the choice to be an isolationist nation, you do so at your own peril.

This precisely the sort of lesson that Kim Jong Un of North Korea is learning during his time atop of figurative throne in the Asian dictatorship.  Like his father, and his father before him, Kim is keeping his foot squarely on the neck of the North Korean people, but doing so under harsh international sanctions.

Of course, these sanctions could and likely would have been eased had the dainty despot negotiated a deal with US President Donald Trump just weeks ago.

Exacerbating all of the issues that the figuratively imprisoned North Korean people face is a drought – the worst in decades – that has again brought a fear of famine to the hermit kingdom.

North Korea disclosed on Wednesday it is suffering its worst drought in nearly four decades, amid growing concerns the country is dangerously short on food.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency said that only 2.1 inches of rain fell throughout the country in the first five months of this year, the lowest amount since the same period in 1982 when 2 inches of rain on average fell.

The current conditions, described by KCNA as “extreme drought“, are expected to continue at least until the end of May.

North Korean authorities have asked private citizens to seek out previously unknown sources of water – a desperate measure that belies the complete and utter ineptitude of the DPRK’s ruling class.

To put food on the dinner table, Kim Jong Un may need to come back to the negotiating table.

Dog in Thailand with Three Legs Hailed as Hero After Saving Abandoned Newborn

And he did it all with only three legs.

We don’t deserve dogs. Sure, that has been said thousands of times over throughout the course of modern history, but the logic is still difficult to argue with even with all of that preparation. These creatures, after tens of thousands of years as our only true companion animal, have evolved into not only being fairly well dependent on us, but also to love us unconditionally, and in ways that we could only dream about. New research even suggests that owning dogs has altered the human genetic code, and that being a “dog person” is something that a DNA test can reveal. Furthermore, dogs are kind and caring in ways that we may never be able to replicate as a more sentient animal. Take the case of a peculiar pup in Thailand who this week saved a newborn baby from an unfathomable fate at the hands of its mother. A dog in northern Thailand has rescued a newborn baby after it was buried alive, allegedly by its teenage mother. The baby boy is said to have been abandoned by his mother, 15, to hide her pregnancy from her parents. Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village. Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth. Locals rushed the baby to hospital where doctors cleaned him up and declared he was healthy. Ping Pong, despite having lost a leg in a car accident, has always been a good boy. Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car. He told Khaosod Newspaper: “I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle.…

HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Well, this isn’t good. The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached. The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased. Check it out… From Politico: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings. His tweets: Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831615952236546 I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831618712100864 In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831619869728771 Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831620838662145 Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates…
