Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com A 75-foot-tall wave was recorded last month about 20 miles off the coast of California while the region was being hit with the "bomb cyclone." On average, waves near the Cape Mendocino buoy usually average about 10 feet, SFGate.com reported. But on Nov. 26, the average height was about 43 feet tall. The largest wave—which occurred in the evening hours—was 75 feet. James Behrens, the manager for Scripp's Coastal Data Information Program, told the website that a wave of that size to occur so close to land is extremely rare. "The only other station in the network that measured a wave this large is deployed 800 miles off the coast of Washington,” he said. The "bomb cyclone" hit northern California and southern Oregon during one of the busiest travel times of the year.

WASHINGTON - Q: “Voice of America reaches all over the world, including directly into Venezuela and the surrounding countries. A lot of chaos going on there. What’s the message that you want to get to the people of Venezuela. What do they need to know about American policy?”National Security Advisor John Bolton: “Well that we are entirely behind their justifiable desire to be able to control their own government to get rid of this authoritarian military regime that’s basically ruined the economy of the country over the last twenty years. The nations of the Western Hemisphere are almost unanimously behind their desire to see a peaceful transfer of power. Fifty six governments have recognized Juan Guaido as the legitimate interim president, that’s the first time that there’s ever been that kind of rejection of the Maduro regime. So times are hard in Venezuela now, that’s because of twenty years of mismanagement of the economy. But … [Read more...] about VOA Interview: John Bolton’s Take on World’s Hotspots
SEOUL - U.S. President Donald Trump appears to be calling North Korea’s bluff on its end-of-year deadline for nuclear negotiations, prompting some analysts to wonder whether the U.S. president should be taking Pyongyang’s threats more seriously. “Kim Jong Un is too smart and has far too much to lose, everything actually, if he acts in a hostile way. He signed a strong Denuclearization Agreement with me in Singapore. He does not want to void his special relationship with the President of the United States or interfere with the U.S. Presidential Election in November,” Trump tweeted on Dec. 9. “North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, has tremendous economic potential, but it must denuclearize as promised.” That same day, a top North Korean official released a threatening statement that addressed the U.S. president directly through the country’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). “It seems that Trump is very anxious … [Read more...] about Experts: Trump Should Take N.

Contrary to a lot of heated rhetoric from Democrats, most Republicans understand that Russia was responsible for the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s server in 2016 and other efforts to sow mischief in the electoral process. They’ll even admit it when pressed.The problem is they want everyone to believe that Ukraine did the same thing. It didn’t. To make the case, the Ukraine conspiracy theorists take a handful of anecdotes about individual Ukrainians and insinuate or insist this thin gruel amounts to something as sinister as the Russian effort. While the effort is a propaganda gift for Russian President Vladimir Putin, they’re pushing this piffle to show they’ve got the president’s back amid the impeachment drama. They’re trying to legitimize Trump’s pressure campaign on Ukraine, but it takes some huge leaps of faith.The president subscribes to a fever swamp illusion that goes by the shorthand “CrowdStike.” This … [Read more...] about Opinion: Republicans acknowledge Russian election interference. So why are they so irrational about Ukraine?
PENTAGON - The Pentagon has denied intentionally misleading the public about the 18-year war in Afghanistan, after The Washington Post published a trove of government documents revealing that officials made overly optimistic pronouncements they knew to be false and hid evidence that the conflict had become un-winnable. "There has been no intent by DoD to mislead Congress or the public," Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Campbell wrote to VOA on Monday. "The information contained in the interviews was provided to SIGAR (Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction) for the express purpose of inclusion in SIGAR's public reports," he added. The Post said the documents contain more than 400 interviews with senior military and government insiders who offered unrestrained criticism of what went wrong in Afghanistan and how the United States became mired in nearly two decades of war. According to the Post, U.S. officials, most of whom spoke on the assumption … [Read more...] about Pentagon Denies Intentionally Misleading Public on Afghan War
