    We already know that the Obama administration engaged in some verbal gymnastics to try and sell the Iranian nuclear deal to the American people in 2015. The New York Timesreported last yearthatDeputyNational Security AdvisorBen Rhodes helped push a "narrative" that Iran had adopted moderate policies so that the White House could gain support for the agreement. In reality, Iran was still in engaging in nefarious activity. The House Oversight Committee, led by Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), is digging deeper to try and discover justhow the Obama White House manipulated the deal. The committee isreacting in direct responseto a Politicoreport...

    President Trump's tough talk on North Korea has apparently emboldened Americans into supporting a preemptive U.S. attack on the communist nation's nuclear weapons. A new Zogby Analytics poll provided to Secrets found that 52 percent back a U.S. first strike. "A majority (52 percent) of voters agree that the U.S. must deal with North Korea's nuclear threat and are willing to even support a preemptive strike, as opposed to 36 percent of voters who disagree," said the survey.

    Congress is expected to level fresh economic sanctions on North Korea this week as the threat of the hermit nation's capability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear missile continues to escalate, according to conversations with members of the congressional leadership who told the Washington Free Bacon that the Kim Jong Un regime could have a nuclear weapon capable of striking the United States in "only a few years." House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) confirmed that he has scheduled a vote in the House on new sanctions that will target North Korea's slave labor trade and its shipping...

    North Korea's state media published a rare criticism of China on Wednesday, saying Chinese state media commentaries calling for tougher sanctions over Pyongyang's nuclear program were undermining relations with Beijing and worsening tensions. A commentary carried by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) referred to recent commentaries in China's People's Daily and Global Times newspapers, which it said were "widely known as media speaking for the official stand of the Chinese party and government." "A string of absurd and reckless remarks are now heard from China every day only to render the present bad situation tenser," it said. "China...

    Old article from last year. "North Korea’s boast that it just detonated its first hydrogen bomb met instant doubts from the White House and arms experts. If they’re right, Pyongyang “only” has plain-old atomic bombs. What a . . . relief? But, as one Chinese expert told The Wall Street Journal, the H-bomb claim still shows that tyrant Kim Jong-un is “marching in that direction.” For all this, thank Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. North Korea couldn’t have done it without their gullibility. Back in 1994, President Clinton prepared to confront North Korea over CIA reports it had built nuclear warheads and...

    The Iranian regimes nuclear weapons program, born in secrecy and kept hidden for years, has never skipped a beat and today continues on course in underground and military facilities to which inspectors have no access. On 21 April 2017, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the oldest, largest, and best organized democratic Iranian opposition group presented startling new evidence that the jihadist regime in Tehran is violating the terms of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) agreement reached in July 2015 among the P-5 +1 (Permanent Five Members of the UN Security Council plus Germany), the IAEA...

    The National Council of Resistance in Iran, a group that wants to replace the current regime with a secular-democracy, publicly released detailed information about alleged covert nuclear activities in Iran. The accusation immediately followed the Trump Administrations determination that Iran is complying with the nuclear deal. NCRI says that the newly-identified site is in the Parchin military base, the place that Iran has been most resistant to granting outside access to. It is known that Iran working on the high explosives necessary for a nuclear weapons trigger at Parchin. NCRI says that the effort was simply moved from one location...

    Obama's Iran deal was a boost for its weapons program. So why should any of his dirty deals with the Islamic terror state not be a vital part of the same treasonous agenda. When President Barack Obama announced the one-time gesture of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehrans pledge to free five Americans.

    Secretary of Homeland Security Gen. John Kelly said Sunday that he believes President Trump will be dealing with a nuclear North Korea, able to strike America, by the end of his first term. Kelly's statement came during an interview in which CNN's Dana Bash asked Kelly about a recent Los Angeles Times article which said that, in spite of $40 billion in spending by the Pentagon, missile defense systems meant to defend against a nuclear strike by North Korea or Iran failed six times out of nine in simulated attacks tested since 2004. "Is the U.S., at this point, capable...

    NORTH Korea has threatened to hit Australia with a nuclear strike if it continues to follow the United States. The stern warning comes after Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said on Thursday that the rogue nuclear-armed nation would be hit with further Australian sanctions as a clear message that its behaviour will not be tolerated. Ms Bishop also called on China to do more to pressure North Korea into stamping out its hostile and aggressive ways and dumping its nuclear warheads and ballistic missile program. In response to the comments, North Koreas state-run KCNA news agency on Saturday quoted a foreign...

    Iran is cheating on its historical deal with the U.S. by secretly conducting research into nuclear weapons components such as bomb triggers and enriched uranium, the main Iranian opposition group said Friday. The regime is doing engineering and weaponization testing at a walled military complex south of Tehran, a location which Iran has declared off-limits to inspectors, said the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its main operational arm, the Peoples Mujaheddin of Iran (MEK).

While the concert took over an hour to finish, San Francisco was wiped out in about 15 seconds.

    President Trump might pull the United States out of Iran nuclear deal over the rogue regime's support for terrorism, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told Congress. Tillerson certified that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal negotiated by former President Barack Obama's team in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan that was released late Tuesday night. But he hastened to add that Iran's role as "a leading state sponsor of terror through many platforms and methods" has the Trump team debating whether to stick with the agreement. "President Donald J. Trump has directed a National Security Council-led interagency...

    A North Korean missile blew up almost immediately on its test launch on Sunday, the U.S. Pacific Command said, hours before U.S. Vice President Mike Pence was due in South Korea for talks on the Norths increasingly defiant arms program. The failed launch from North Koreas east coast, ignoring admonitions from major ally China, came a day after North Korea held a military parade in its capital, marking the birth anniversary of the state founder, in which what appeared to be new long-range ballistic missiles were on display. South Korea said the combined show of force threatened the whole world....

    With everyone putting down new and/or revised "red lines", be it on Syria or North Korea, it was now China's turn to reveal its "red" or rather "bottom line", and in a harshly worded editorial titled "The United States Must Not Choose a Wrong Direction to Break the DPRK Nuclear Deadlock on Wednesday" Beijing warned it would attack North Korea's facilities producing nuclear bombs, effectively engaging in an act of war, if North Korea crosses China's "bottom line."The editorial in the military-focused Global Times tabloid, owned and operated by the Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper, said that North Koreas...

    The JCPOA grants the Iranian regime two historic achievements the status of a nuclear state and immunity against a Western attack due to its nuclear development. This is effectively a Western guarantee of the Islamic Republic regime's survival. These achievements cannot be cancelled unless the agreement itself is declared invalid. Iranian spokesmen have stressed that even if President Trump's administration cancels the agreement, the agreement cannot be cancelled because Iran, in its prescience, involved the EU and the UN in backing the agreement. Even if the U.S. alone were to cancel the agreement, it would still remain in...
