Ukraine Says Its Rocket Engines Not Behind North Korea’s Missile Success

KYIV, Ukraine—In 2011, Denys Antipov, who was then a Korean language student at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, received an unusual request from the Security Service of Ukraine—the country’s successor agency to the KGB. The Security Service of Ukraine, or SBU, needed Antipov’s help in a delicate counterintelligence operation. In an undercover sting, the security agency had nabbed two North Korean spies trying to steal rocket technology from Ukrainian engineers at the KB Yuzhnoye Design Office in the city of Dnipro, called Dnipropetrovsk at that time. “We believe that this anti-Ukrainian campaign was provoked by the Russian special services,” Oleksandr Turchynov of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council says. Ukrainian counterintelligence officials needed a Korean interpreter for the interrogation and trial of the captured North Koreans. Suddenly, Antipov—who is today 28 years … Read entire article »

‘Hillary-Lite Administration’? Conservatives Worry About Bannon Ouster

The exit of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon doesn’t bode well for conservatives or those who just wanted to see President Donald Trump stick to the economic and foreign policy message that he ran on, some on the right fear. “There is no question that Steve Bannon was one of the only people who could keep Trump true to Trumpism,” Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Daily Signal. “Without Bannon, you have mostly bankers, generals, and liberal Democrats in the White House. It could be a Hillary-lite administration.” Trump was in line with some of the policies promoted by the Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that backs enforcement of immigration laws. However, it’s not just immigration where Krikorian fears President Trump could waiver … Read entire article »

Why Patricia Heaton Is a Problem for Feminists

Every week, The Daily Signal’s Facebook show, “Problematic Women,” highlights strong conservative women, current events, and the hypocrisy of the “feminist” left. On this week’s episode, the mainstream media can’t stop talking about President Donald Trump’s response to Charlottesville and Iceland is eliminating Down syndrome—not through medicine, but through abortion.

What 1 Charity Organization Is Doing to Save 1 Million Unborn Babies

An international Catholic charitable organization has announced a goal of saving 1 million unborn babies by expanding its ultrasound program. “We know from experience that a woman who sees an ultrasound image of her child is highly likely to keep her baby,” Carl Anderson, CEO of the Knights of Columbus, said at the organization’s 135th international convention in St. Louis on Aug. 1-3. In 2009, the Knights of Columbus began working with the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council in New Haven, Connecticut, to pay for 829 ultrasound machines for pregnancy centers or in mobile medical units. Since 2009, Anderson says the program has saved hundreds of thousands of lives. When the ultrasound program gets to its 10th anniversary in 2019, Anderson hopes to have 1,000 machines in service. “If each machine … Read entire article »

Hollywood Wants to Force This Profanity-Filtering Service Out of Business, and May Succeed

The ideological and philosophical divide between Republicans and Democrats has seldom, if ever, been broader and deeper, and the divide between partisans in the degree of their aversion to swearing in feature films is just the latest manifestation of that. A new Harris poll—commissioned by the makers of a forthcoming faith-based film, “Generational Sins,” that itself reportedly contains 32 profanities—found that Republicans are offended by swearing more than Democrats are, by a margin of nearly 2-to-1. Nearly half (45 percent) of Republicans surveyed, compared with just 1 in 4 (25 percent) Democrats, find the “F-bomb” objectionable, for example, the poll found. Among all respondents, however, the poll found the use of “Jesus Christ” as a profanity and “G.D.” both narrowly edged out the four-letter F-word as vulgar dialogue that would keep them from … Read entire article »

Trump Justice Department Ends Operation Choke Point

Republican House members announced Friday that the Justice Department has ended the controversial Obama-era program targeting payday lenders, gun shops, and other legal businesses, in response to several House Republicans who requested Operation Choke Point be shut down. “This is no way for law enforcement to operate,” House Republicans say. “We share your view that law-abiding businesses should not be targeted simply for operating in an industry that a particular administration might disfavor,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote the GOP lawmakers in a letter dated Aug. 16. The letter continued, saying the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation “subsequently rescinded its list of purportedly ‘high risk’ merchants. The Department of Justice (Department) strongly agrees with that withdrawal. All of the Department’s bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Choke Point are now over, the … Read entire article »

Planned Parenthood Loses Legal Battle Over Medicaid Funding in Arkansas

This week, a federal appeals court upheld Arkansas’ decision to cancel its Medicaid provider agreement with Planned Parenthood, which allowed Medicaid recipients to receive non-abortion services at Planned Parenthood clinics. This is good news for other states that decide to stop allowing taxpayers’ money to flow to Planned Parenthood. Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced in August 2015 that the state would terminate its contract following the release of videos that raised disturbing allegations of Planned Parenthood profiting from the sale of organs from aborted babies’ body parts. The state Department of Human Services informed Planned Parenthood it would cancel its contract within 30 days and that Planned Parenthood had a right to an administrative appeal under state law. Instead, Planned Parenthood rounded up a group of patients (known as the “Jane Does”) to file … Read entire article »

Of course: DNC condemns ‘Trump’s empty promises on border wall’

**Written by Doug Powers DNC out: “Donald Trump’s border wall is a massive waste of taxpayer money that will not make us safer. Like many of the president’s policies, this initiative is rooted in nothing more than prejudice and fearmongering.” DNC in: He isn’t building the border fence like he promised! The Democratic National Committee on Tuesday morning sent an email with the subject “Trump’s Empty Promises on Border Wall.” “Trump has failed to deliver on his signature promise to build a border wall and have Mexico pay for it. Trump even admitted in a private conversation with Mexico that his border wall promise was the ‘least important thing,’” said the email, first noticed by Business Insider reporter Allan Smith. Angelo Carusone, president of the liberal group Media Matters for America, slammed the email as … Read entire article »

**Written by Doug Powers …He apparently won’t be worthy of this level of recognition: So far Clarence Thomas has not been deemed worthy of inclusion in the museum: Artifacts from former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests will reportedly soon be on display at the Black Lives Matter collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History. “The National Museum of African American History and Culture has nearly 40,000 items in our collection,” said Damion … Read entire article »
