‘I don’t see people dying’: Fox’s Geraldo Rivera scoffs in the face of San Juan mayor

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera grilled San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz on Sunday after President Donald Trump attacked her on Twitter for complaining about his government’s response to Hurricane Maria. Trump lashed out at Cruz in a series of tweets over the weekend after she pleaded in an interview for him to “save us from dying.” “Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan,” he tweeted angrily. On Sunday, Rivera seemed to take Trump’s side during an interview with the mayor. “There are all people at all municipalities literally starving, dehydrating,” the mayor told Rivera. “We have had our hospital try to go back to speed but then the electricity goes off and we have to do all the bacteria testing, which takes three to four days.” “But are people dying?” Rivera interrupted. “I’ve been traveling around, I don’t see people dying. I spoke to the doctors, they say they saw 53 patients and they had a person who was septic, but nobody dying.” “Dying is a continuum,” Cruz was forced to explain. “If you don’t get fed for seven, eight days and you’re a child, you are dying. If you have 11 people — like we took out of a nursing home — severely dehydrated, you are dying.”

Trump hits back at ‘Crooked Hillary,’ blames her for North Korea’s nuclear progress

Trump hits back at ‘Crooked Hillary,’ blames her for North Korea’s nuclear progress President Trump on Wednesday hit back at Hillary Clinton for criticizing him over his tough talk at the United Nations aimed at stopping North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear arsenal. In an early morning tweet, Trump seemed to put the blame on Clinton for the current standoff with Pyongyang. “After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State (Bill C also), Crooked Hillary now criticizes,” Trump tweeted. The president was responding to remarks Tuesday night by Clinton on CBS’s “The Late Show” about his speech earlier in the day before the U.N. General Assembly. “I thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering,” said Clinton, secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 before running as the Democratic presidential nominee last year. Trump on Tuesday threatened to “totally destroy North Korea” and called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man.” “What I hoped the president would have said,” Clinton continued, “was something along the lines of, you know, we view this as dangerous to our allies, to the region, and even to our country. We call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat posed by Kim Jong Un. “And not call him ‘Rocket Man,’ the old Elton John song, but to say, clearly, we will not tolerate any attacks on our […]

Japanese kidnapped by North Koreans return home in tears

Japanese kidnapped by North Koreans return home in tears By Colin Joyce in Tokyo12:01AM BST 16 Oct 2002 Five Japanese made an emotional return to their homeland yesterday nearly a quarter of a century after being abducted to North Korea. The five, all in their forties, arrived by charter plane from Pyongyang to be greeted by relatives at Haneda airport, Tokyo. Fukie Hamamoto was first off the plane with her husband and fellow kidnap victim, Yasushi Chimura. She smiled and waved but wept seconds later as she embraced her brothers and sisters. Ms Hamamoto’s brother Yuko said: “We were the liveliest group because there are seven siblings. We were laughing and talking noisily about things that happened when we were children. I was glad to see her smiling face as before.” The relatives waved Japanese flags and held a sign saying: “Welcome home.” Four of the five victims wept as they hugged and held hands with relatives. Only Kaoru Hasuike remained composed as he greeted the family he last saw 24 years ago. The five were kidnapped from remote places on the Japanese coast by North Korean agents in three separate incidents in 1978. Four later married. All have now lived longer in the secretive Stalinist nation than in their homeland. For the families the visit marks the high point of their long campaign to be reunited with their loved ones. For many years few people believed the rumours that North Korean spies were kidnapping ordinary young Japanese. When Tokyo […]

Boris Johnson warns the world faces ‘catastrophe

Boris Johnson warns the world faces ‘catastrophe it hasn’t seen before’ if North Korea perfects nuclear missile The world faces a “catastrophe that it hasn’t seen before” if Kim Jong Un realises his nuclear ambitions, Boris Johnson warned today. The Foreign Secretary warned the situation in North Korea, – a “rogue nation” was “very, very serious.” In a Facebook video, Johnson referenced Donald Trump mocking the North Korean leader as “rocket man,” yesterday. The President told the UN “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime” and added that if the US was “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea”. Johnson joked: “Elton John is getting a place in Donald Trump’s speeches.” But he added: “Of course it’s very, very serious. The world faces a catastrophe that it hasn’t seen before, that is a rogue nation being able to use an ICBM (Inter-continental Ballistic Missile) equipped with a thermonuclear hydrogen warhead. “That is very, very dangerous, something we have got to stop. “The key to it, we think, is to work together with all our friends and partners here in the UN, get the Chinese to put more economic pressure on Pyongyang.” At the summit, Mr Johnson met Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi and urged him to keep up the pressure on North Korea. The Foreign Secretary told the Guardian: “No one in their right minds wants to see the US driven to use its […]

Shinzo Abe: Solidarity Against the North Korean Threat

TOKYO — The whole world confronts an unprecedented, grave and imminent threat from North Korea. On Sept. 3, the regime carried out a reprehensible nuclear test. Late last week, it launched a ballistic missile over my country, Japan, only two weeks after a similar missile launch. By repeatedly testing missiles — in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions — Pyongyang has shown its reach now extends to the United States and Europe. North Korea’s actions are an outright challenge to the international community. On Sept. 11, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on a new round of strict sanctions that restrict member states from selling oil to the North, ban North Korean textile exports and ban member states from authorizing North Koreans to work abroad. They are an important step, but the leadership in Pyongyang has consistently ignored previous resolutions. The international community must stay united and enforce the sanctions. Here in northeast Asia, the North Korean threat has been real for more than a quarter-century. We face the threat of missiles — short and medium range — together with the possibility of chemical weapons attacks. North Korea has targeted Japan in particular by abducting many innocent Japanese citizens, including a 13-year-old girl who was abducted in 1977. Most of them have been held in North Korea since the 1970s and 1980s. Everyone aspires to a peaceful solution to these challenges. And global solidarity is of utmost importance. Still, prioritizing diplomacy and emphasizing the importance of […]

North Korea warns US of ‘horrible nuclear strike’ which will bring about its ‘final ruin’

NORTH KOREA boasts that it is now a “world military giant” and has threatened a “nuclear strike” on the US. The hermit state says it is ready to launch a devastating attack which will see its enemies meet a “miserable and final ruin”. The message comes amid rising fears of World War 3 breaking out on the Korean peninsula. The mounting crisis in North Korea has left frightened citizens around the world fearing the outbreak of a global military conflict. As Kim Jong-un continues to test Donald Trump’s patience with a series of missile launches, time is beginning to wear thin on the President’s promise to fight the hermit state with “fire and fury”. Last week, the communist state warned that “nuclear war may break out” at any moment in a direct message to the US and Trump.
