Washington Times, by Carlo Muñoz Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Mon, 31 47 2017 10:47:14 GMT North Korea’s recent tests of long-range, nuclear-capable missiles, which could potentially hit targets as far away as the continental United States, continues to be Washington’s best argument for maintaining a series of controversial anti-missile systems in neighboring South Korea.

Designer Babies Are Here, by Rush Limbaugh Posted By: Harlowe- Mon, 31 18 2017 11:18:01 GMT RUSH: I have this story I had late last week. I didn’t get a chance to get into it. But this story goes back, on this program, to the early nineties.

It’s our souls. And I don’t care what they’re able to identify in DNA, they are never gonna be able to get to that. Because that is the essence of creation. And there isn’t a gene

PJ Media, by Tom Knighton Posted By: Hazymac- Mon, 31 28 2017 11:28:52 GMT I get it. Donald Trump isn´t everyone´s cup of tea.
