North Korea's Missiles Will Take Only 20 Minutes To Reach Alaska

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,
The state of Alaska is preparing for a potential war with North Korea. 
The Alaskans are being urged not to evacuate, though should Kim Jong-Un launch a missile toward Alaska, it would only take 20 minutes to get there.
Emergency planners in Alaska have warned it will not attempt evacuations if a warhead is fired because time would not be on their side. Jeremy Zidek, from the state’s disaster planning team, will urge locals to find shelter rather than risk being caught in the open. He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios, and medical supplies including the anti-radiation pill Prussian Blue – medication that lessens the radiological impacts on your body.
Tensions have escalated lately on the Korean peninsula after a series of missile tests in the hermit kingdom and propagandized media threats were made sentencing president Donald Trump to death. Tyrant Kim Jong-un has since threatened a “nuclear holocaust” and there are fears the regime will soon have a missile capable of reaching the US mainland.
Zidek admitted that the state’s defensive facilities could be picked for an attack.
Alaska is home to Fort Greely, where the US has interceptor rockets designed to destroy incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The state also has missile defenses at the Pacific Spaceport Complex as well as radar warning systems at Clear Air Force Station.
“We have the missile defense system here. We have missiles and radars in a number of different locations,” Zidek said.

“Perhaps there would be some type of attack on those military facilities to try to hinder our ability to react to any missile launches.”
But Zidek’s warnings for Alaska get even more terrifying.
He also warned that Alaska no longer has any bomb shelters and there would be no new measures to deal specifically with a North Korean nuclear threat.
“There could be evacuation notices put in place but are we going to be able to get that amount of lead time to instruct people to actually evacuate an area?” he said.
Remember, once a missile is launched toward Alaska, it would take less than 20 minutes to make an impact.
“Really the recommendation for people during a nuclear attack is to shelter in place and find some type of secure location that will protect them from that blast,” said Zidek.

“So with a mass evacuation – if people leave their homes, schools, and businesses to try to get out of the area, we may be putting more people at risk.”
Emergency planners in Hawaii have already confirmed that their state is within 20 minutes of Kim Jong-un’s missiles – and Alaska is even closer. Guam is closer still, and Kim has already threatened that island territory too.
Zidek said Alaska had reviewed its radiological threat plans and prepared social media warnings to be published at short notice. Otherwise, he said Alaska would respond to a nuclear attack using the same plans already devised for disasters like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
“The thing with disasters is – while disasters may vary a great deal – the consequences of the disasters don’t really change very much. With something like a nuclear attack, of course you’re going to have mass casualties, a hazmat event, and you’re gonna have the need to transport a large number of people,” said Zidek.

“When we look at these problems, the consequences of the attack, they may be the same as if we had another large earthquake or we have a massive chemical spill. On a state level, when we look at our all-hazards plan, we say to ourselves ‘we are preparing for the consequences of any type of disaster’.  And that’s exactly what we want our residents here in Alaska to do. Prepare for the consequences of any type of disaster.”

Canadian Evangelicals Denied Adoption Due to Faith

An evangelical Christian couple, identified in court documents only by their initials, have charged the Alberta provincial government with religious discrimination based on their religious beliefs regarding human sexuality that resulted in their application for adoption being rejected.

The couple, who live in Edmonton, allege the Ministry of Children’s Services told them their religious beliefs related to gender and sexuality were “contrary to the official position of the Alberta government.” They completed a Safe Home Study Report—a document that asks a series of questions about prospective adoptive parents’ income, lifestyle, and home routines—in February.

According to the Edmonton Journal, they indicated they hoped to adopt a child, or up to three siblings, between the ages of 7 and 17, through the Catholic Social Services program. CSS social workers quickly recommended them for adoption approval, but noted that a “homosexual child” should not be placed with them.

The reason given: “though they said would unconditionally love a child questioning or exploring their sexuality, they would not support the ‘lifestyle,’ which could mean a child may not feel accepted.” In mid-March, they were contacted again and told Child and Family Services had additional questions about their views on sexuality.

According to several emails, which were admitted as evidence, the worker and couple discussed the issue. There were several additional meetings with CSS and CFS officials, during which the couple said they would seek counseling and support if a child in their care began questioning his or her sexuality, but noted they could not encourage a lifestyle they knew “caused a higher proportion of anxiety, depression, and suicide attempts than other lifestyles.”

Their application to adopt was formally rejected May 3.

In their complaint before the Court of Queen’s Bench in Edmonton, filed earlier this month, the wife stated:

"If we did not change our religious beliefs regarding sexuality, to conform to the beliefs of Child and Family Services, we would not be approved for adoption."

The couple is asking the court to rule that their religious freedoms were violated and the CFS be ordered to approve their adoption application. In response to questions about the application rejection from the Journal, a Ministry of Children’s Services spokesman said the government believes “every adoptive child deserves a safe, healthy, loving and inclusive home.”

Why America's Retail Apocalypse Could Accelerate Even More In 2018

Is the retail apocalypse in the United States about to go to a whole new level?  
That is a frightening thing to consider, because the truth is that things are already quite bad.  We have already shattered the all-time record for store closings in a single year and we still have the rest of November and December to go. 
Unfortunately, it truly does appear that things will get even worse in 2018, because a tremendous amount of high-yield retail debt is coming due next year. 
In fact, Bloomberg is reporting that the amount of high-yield retail debt that will mature next year is approximately 19 times larger than the amount that matured this year…
Just $100 million of high-yield retail borrowings were set to mature this year, but that will increase to $1.9 billion in 2018, according to Fitch Ratings Inc. And from 2019 to 2025, it will balloon to an annual average of almost $5 billion. The amount of retail debt considered risky is also rising. Over the past year, high-yield bonds outstanding gained 20 percent, to $35 billion, and the industry’s leveraged loans are up 15 percent, to $152 billion, according to Bloomberg data.

Even worse, this will hit as a record $1 trillion in high-yield debt for all industries comes due over the next five years, according to Moody’s.
Can you say “debt bomb”?
For those of you that are not familiar with these concepts, high-yield debt is considered to be the riskiest form of debt.  Retailers all over the nation went on a tremendous debt binge for years, and many of those loans never should have been made.  Now that debt is going to start to come due, and many of these retailers simply will not be able to pay.
So how does that concern the rest of us?
Well, just like with the subprime mortgage meltdown, the “spillover” could potentially be enormous.  Here is more from Bloomberg
The debt coming due, along with America’s over-stored suburbs and the continued gains of online shopping, has all the makings of a disaster. The spillover will likely flow far and wide across the U.S. economy. There will be displaced low-income workers, shrinking local tax bases and investor losses on stocks, bonds and real estate. If today is considered a retail apocalypse, then what’s coming next could truly be scary.
I have written extensively about Sears and other troubled retailers that definitely appear to be headed for zero.  But one major retailer that is flying below the radar a little bit that you should keep an eye on is Target.  For over a year, conservatives have been boycotting the retailer, and this boycott is really starting to take a toll
Target has been desperately grasping at ideas to recover lost business, including remodeling existing stores and opening smaller stores, lowering prices, hiring more holiday staff and introducing a new home line from Chip and Joanna Gaines. But Target stock remains relatively stagnant, opening at 61.50 today—certainly nowhere near the mid-80s of April 2016, when the AFA boycott began.
