Kim Jong Un Orders All Defectors Shot

Kim Jong Un Orders All Defectors Shot
UPI
Kim Jong Un ordered that defectors attempting to flee the country be shot.

Kim Jong Un, who seized power in North Korea following the death of his father Kim Jong Il, recently demonstrated that the regime will not be softening under his rule.

This week, sources reported Kim Jong Un ordered that defectors attempting to flee the country be shot.

A Japanese paper called Sankei Shimbun reported last week that Kim Jong Un issued an order not to let a single defector get away around Dec. 19, when the North announced the death of Kim Jong Il, citing a source supposedly knowledgeable about the North Korea-China border areas.

“Kim Jong-un has ordered intensified control in border areas in recent years since he emerged as successor to his father Kim Jong-il,” a defector-turned-reporter at Open Radio for North Korea, a Seoul-based media organization specializing in the North, told the Korean JoongAng Daily. “And now Kim Jong-un is ordering immediate executions when people are caught trying to cross the borders [without permission].”

Kim Jong Un has reportedly also ordered that three generations of relatives of any defectors are also to be killed — an act that is said to have never been carried out under his father.

The number of North Korean defectors has increased sharply over the past several years as people in the country have suffered food shortages and learned more about other parts of the world.

Sudan’s president has offered Libya his help in disarming former rebels. Omar al-Bashir was in Tripoli to thank its new leaders for getting rid of Muammar Gaddafi, who was known to have backed Sudanese militants. Bashir is wanted by The Hague for genocide in his own country. Human rights groups condemned his visit, and questioned the priorities of Libya’s new leaders. But analysts say they are just following the West’s example.

The Faux Conservatism Of Rick Santorum

The Faux Conservatism Of Rick Santorum
UPI
Rick Santorum trailed Mitt Romney by eight votes in the Iowa Caucus.

Fresh off his stunning (a possible ill-gotten) second-place finish in Iowa, former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is trying to claim the mantle of the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney.

Such a claim would spark belly laughs and derisive hoots and catcalls in a sane world. But in our present-day non-reality of doublespeak it’s simply sad because so many deluded Republicans are glomming on to this lie.

I wrote a complete profile on Santorum last fall that can be read here. But here’s a little reminder to refresh your memory on just who Santorum really is:

  • In 2004, he joined George W. Bush to help re-elect Senator Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey. Santorum says no one is more pro-life than he, yet he backed pro-choice Specter over pro-life — and later to become 2010 Tea Party favorite — Toomey in a Republican primary. And by the way, the very liberal Specter later defected to the Democratic Party, giving Obama the filibuster-proof majority he needed to pass Obamacare.
  • Santorum championed No Child Left Behind.  
  • Santorum helped Bush push through a new and wildly expensive entitlement, the Medicare prescription drug bill.
  • He voted for the USA Patriot Act, then voted to renew it four years later.
  • Santorum voted in favor of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, which established the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Santorum voted for the 2005 highway bill that included thousands of wasteful earmarks, including the Bridge to Nowhere; and he supported every Pennsylvania pork-laden bill that came up.
  • Santorum believes it’s the government’s job to legislate morality and has no concept of what the 10th Amendment means.
  • Santorum is no friend of the 2nd Amendment either. In the 1990s, he voted for the Lautenberg Gun Ban, which stripped for life the rights of people to own guns if they spanked their children or grabbed their spouse’s wrist. In 1999, he voted for a bill that required Federal background checks at gun shows. In 2005, he voted to mandate locks on handguns. He has campaigned for anti-gun zealots like Specter and New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman. He has refused to return his Gun Rights Presidential Survey to the National Association for Gun Rights and his Gun Owners of America Presidential Survey.
  • He backed the Iraq war and has advocated bombing Iran.
  • Santorum is the ultimate Washington insider. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington named him among the three most corrupt Senators in 2005 and 2006 for using his office to financially benefit those who had contributed to his campaign.
  • Within weeks of leaving Congress, Santorum had a job on K-Street as a lobbyist and his 2010 income of more than $1 million included payments from a lobbying firm, an energy company engaged in controversial “hydrofracking” and a hospital conglomerate that was sued for allegedly defrauding the Federal government.

Santorum is the type of RINO that Tea Partiers would have worked to defeat in 2010. Yet now some of those same Tea Partiers and war-loving neocons are supporting him as the anti-Romney, falsely believing Santorum would stand a chance in an election against President Barack Obama.

They’re forgetting that Santorum is no longer in the Senate because, despite (or because of) 12 years of incumbency, he couldn’t even carry his own State in 2006, losing to Bob Casey Jr. 58.6 percent to 41.3 percent.
