More Threats From North Korea, Sen. Lindsey Graham Threatens Trump, Trannie Ban, Hillary Clinton ‘What Happened’: Your Thursday Briefing
Here’s what you need to know:
1. North Korean Threatens to Annihilate the US With ‘Merciless’ Missile Strike
A North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson said, “Should the U.S. dare to show even the slightest sign of an attempt to remove our supreme leader, we will strike a merciless blow at the heart of the U.S. with our powerful nuclear hammer. Via AOL: North Korea threatens to annihilate the US with ‘merciless’ missile strike.
+ Like his father and grandfather before him, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un insists that nuclear weapons and ICBMs are necessary to safeguard the country from foreign invasion, but pro-West countries such as Australia see them as damaging to national security. The range of North Korea’s Hwasong-14 ICBM has been estimated at between 7,000 and 8,000 kilometers, potentially putting most of Australia within the range of the new missile.
+ Here’s some excellent reporting from Mac Slavo over at SHTF Plan about the North Korean threat. With tensions rising and the North Korean regime unwilling to cease missile tests, the leader of the rogue nation is now officially threatening the United States with World War 3 he reports.
+ And from The New York Times – Hawaii Wants to Be Prepared for a Nuclear Attack by North Korea. Meanwhile… U.S. Vows Tougher Action on North Korea After Missile Test. But really what can the U.S. do about North Korea? According to the latest reports from the New York Times, not much – What Can Trump Do About North Korea? His Options Are Few and Risky.
+ And here is another piece of interesting reading – What if Trump Ordered a Nuclear Strike on China? I’d Comply, Says Admiral. That would be a bad day for everyone and a day that will most likely come at some point in the future.
2. Sen. Lindsey Graham, Says That “There Will be Holy Hell to Pay”
Graham’s words were the sternest yet among Senate Republican warnings to Trump about the potential consequences of firing either the attorney general or the special counsel. Stating that doing so could be “the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency.” Reported by The La Times: Senator warns Trump there will be “holy hell to pay” if he fires Sessions.
3. US Joint Chiefs Blindsided by Trump’s Trannie Ban
For now, Dunford has informed service members that there will be “no modifications to the current policy until the President’s direction has been received by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary has issued implementation guidelines.” From CNN (Clinton News Network): US Joint Chiefs blindsided by Trump’s transgender ban.
+ I reported here yesterday that according to Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry transgenderism is a mental disorder. And he isn’t alone The WHO in 2016 agreed that being transgender is a mental illness – however after bowing to political correctness the WHO has now declassified transgenderism as a mental disorder.
+ And more from the Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: ‘Transgendered Men Don’t Become Women,’ They Become ‘Feminized Men,’ ‘Impersonators’.
+ Sex reassignment surgery, even today with all of its advances, cannot, in fact, change anyone’s sex, okay. You can define yourself as a trans man, or a trans woman, as one of these new gradations along the scale. But ultimately, every single cell in the human body, the DNA in that cell, remains coded for your biological birth. From CNS News: ‘Transgender Mania’ is a Symptom of West’s Cultural Collapse.
+ Former Transgender: Trump ‘Made Right Decision,’ ‘Military Is a Fighting Force, Not a Gender Clinic’. (And I agree 100% – how about you?)
+ And to top it all off – Justice Dept. Says Rights Law Doesn’t Protect Gays.
4. Hillary Clinton ‘What Happened’
Hillary Clinton is calling her new book “What Happened” and promising unprecedented candor as she remembers her stunning defeat last year to Donald Trump.

(From reading the article it looks like she is still whining about “the Russians” and pointing fingers at everyone but herself. News flash you old skank – people were sick of Obamas far left liberal policies that he and you had shoved down the throat of the American people for the past eight years and knew that if elected you would continue his “legacy” so they said NO more! And you’re still wondering what happened.. well there it is and I didn’t need to write a book explaining it. )
By the way, if for some reason you want to read more of her whining and finger-pointing then you can buy her book at Amazon.com.
5. Boy Scout Leader Takes a Shot at The Donald
Boy Scouts of America leader apologized Thursday for a speech that President Trump gave to thousands of teenage Scouts earlier this week “I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent,” Michael Surbaugh, whose title is chief Scout executive, wrote in a message posted online.

As reported by Politico: Senate Republicans Hope Their own Obamacare Repeal Won’t Become Law.
7. Ancient DNA Counters Biblical Account of the Mysterious Canaanites
One of those sources is the Bible’s Old Testament, which documents a grisly end for the Canaanites: After the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt, they swept into Canaan and annihilated its people. But did that really happen? Archaeological data suggest that Canaanite cities were never destroyed or abandoned. Now, ancient DNA recovered from five Canaanite skeletons suggests that these people survived to contribute their genes to millions of people living today. Via Science Mag: Ancient DNA Counters Biblical Account of the Mysterious Canaanites.
+ An Ancient Manuscript Of The Bible Has Been Discovered – The vast majority of Christians who use the King James Bible today believe that it is the divine word of God, and yet this discovery proves that the Bible is really a product of the whims of the translators, the editors and the political figures who lived long after the death of Christ.

As reported by CNN: Researchers question whether you should really finish your antibiotics.
9. Close Call – A Plane-Size Asteroid Buzzes by Earth Undetected
Astronomers first spotted an asteroid about as long as a 737 passenger jet on Sunday and analyzed its path to determine it had made a close pass by our planet three days earlier. In other words, the big space rock slipped right by us without being detected and was only seen in our cosmic rear-view mirror. By Eric Mack at CNET: A Plane-Size Asteroid Buzzes by Earth Undetected.
