    Tillerson, Mattis rebuff Bannon claim of no 'military solution' for North Korea Published August 17, 2017 Fox News Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Thursday rebuffed White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s claim to a liberal magazine that “there’s no military solution” for North Korea’s nuclear threats. Bannon unloaded in an interview published late Wednesday by The American Prospect. He hammered the importance of what he called the “economic war with China,” dubbing the tensions with Pyongyang a “sideshow” and rejecting the notion there’s a military solution. Asked Thursday about those comments, Tillerson and Mattis...

    South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in says North Korean nuclear-tipped ICBM is a “red line” White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said he was pushing the U.S. administration to take a harder line on China trade and not put complaints against its trade practices in the backseat in hope that Beijing would help restrain leader Kim Jong Un. North Korea would be “crossing a red line” if it put a nuclear warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile, South Korea’s president said on Thursday, but the United States had promised to seek Seoul’s approval before taking any military action. North Korea’s rapid...
  • Paranoid Kim Jong-un executing record numbers of North Koreans who no longer see him as a living GOD

    The heartless crackdown – spearheaded by the paranoid Glorious Leader himself – is leading to imprisonment, torture and even execution by firing squad. The news comes as it’s revealed more and more people are now turning to traditional religions like Buddhism and Christianity – rather than follow the so-called Cult of the Kims. Among those are tens of thousands who have refused to sign up with the army. The report said: “The number of conscientious objectors refusing military service for non religious reasons is also on the rise, according to local NGOs, lawyers, and religious groups.”

    North Korea likely can make missile engines without imports: U.S. Jonathan Landay WASHINGTON (Reuters) - North Korea likely has the ability to produce its own missile engines and intelligence suggests it does not need to rely on imports, U.S. intelligence officials said on Tuesday. The assessment disputes a new study by the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies that said that the engines for a nuclear missile North Korea is developing to hit the United States likely were made in factories in Ukraine or Russia and probably obtained via black market networks. The New York Times cited the study on...

At the press conference, the official refuted the report by The New York Times claiming that the success of...

    With his public alarmed by President Trump’s recent threats to North Korea, President Moon Jae-in of South Korea issued an unusually blunt rebuke to the United States on Tuesday, warning that any unilateral military action against the North over its nuclear weapons program would be intolerable. “No one should be allowed to decide on a military action on the Korean Peninsula without South Korean agreement,” Mr. Moon said in a nationally televised speech. As a candidate for the presidency, Mr. Moon, a liberal who took office in May, said he would “say no to the Americans” if necessary. But he...

    Ukraine denies selling missile technology to North Korea KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine denied on Monday that it had ever supplied defense technology to North Korea, responding to an article in the New York Times that said North Korea may have purchased rocket engines from Ukrainian factory Yuzhmash.

The United States is a key backer of Ukraine.

    UK citizens ‘should be advised to leave Korean peninsula’ The Government should advise British nationals in the Korean peninsula to leave if the tensions over Kim Jong Un’s nuclear programme continue to ratchet up, a former head of the Royal Navy has warned. Admiral Lord West of Spithead said there was a “real risk” the current stand off between North Korea and the United States could escalate into an actual conflict, resulting in an exchange of nuclear weapons, with “catastrophic” consequences for the region. He said advising UK citizens to leave the peninsula and nearby Japan would send a message...

    August 9, 2017 – 8 AM – NYC – This was the first anti-fascist FASCIST speaker of the “No Nuclear War! The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” protest. He droned on and on – while standing in front of their mock DRONE – about impeaching President Trump. “The Resist a Fascist America” FASCISTS gathered the day before the anniversary of Nagasaki, in front of Fox News, to defend the TOTALITARIAN hellhole called North Korea. The enemy (for them) is the United States (it’s not just the Trump/Pence “REGIME”). They never met a totalitarian government they wouldn’t DEFEND. The counter-protest was...

    North Korea’s Missile Success Is Linked to Ukrainian Plant, Investigators Say North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile program, according to an expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies. The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains...

The Korea Gold Exchange, a local trader, said the average daily sales of 100-gram gold bars reached 250 units since Wednesday, rising sharply from 50 units on average. Industry watchers said the demand for smaller gold bars is increasing as they are easier to carry compared to kilo-level products. A 10-gram gold bar is currently trading at around 550,000 won ($480), the trader added....

    With North Korea breathing nuclear threats against America and Japan, China ramping up their nuclear arsenal and navy, Russia's deadly but silent presence ever looming and Iran in the process of possessing nuclear weapons; the world today more than ever is ready for a massive nuclear global holocaust. A popular prophetic question that is always asked is, “Is nuclear war mentioned in the Bible, and if so, when will it take place?” It is our personal opinion that a full nuclear war will NOT take place until AFTER the Rapture of the church - Rev. 6), but as events are...

    It must be weird for the ordinary person around the world to view U.S. politics through the prism of the American MSM lügenpresse.  We’re often left wondering if international observers realize how much deception and fraud exists in media broadcasts of President Trump. However, that said, a few days ago CTH predicted via twitter that Friday would bring a “breaking news” revelation that President Trump’s administration had been in ongoing negotiations with North Korea.  Today, exactly that happened. [...] These back-channel discussions were/are entirely predictable because negotiation is the forté of President Trump’s entire life’s repertoire.  It’s just how he rolls.  Negotiation is what gets Donald Trump’s autonomic...

    North Korea Rebukes Russia’s Denial of Its ICBM Launch Russia called North Korea’s missile fired on July 4 an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) rather than an ICBM By Charlotte Gao August 11, 2017 As The Diplomat asked earlier: why is Russia denying that North Korea successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on July 4, 2017? North Korea is also asking the same question, and is apparently furious about Russia’s denial. On July 4, North Korea successfully flew an ICBM, the Hwasong-14. The ICBM launch was acknowledged around the world including United States, Japan, and South Korea — but not...
