    Communist dictator of North Korea Kim Jong-un declared through state media on Wednesday that the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was necessary to “clearly show what action the DPRK [North Korea] has been prepared and what option the DPRK would take when Washington makes a wrong decision against it.”

    ONCE AGAIN, the rioters are looting and pillaging Ferguson, Missouri. Ferguson However, we don’t believe the protests and riots that ensued were ever about Michael Brown. The entire movement represents a threat to our Republic. Yes, you read that correctly… Those supporting, funding, supplying and organizing the recent race riots are a clear and present danger to the Republic of the United States. If you were watching the news broadcasts about the protests in New York City, you undoubtedly saw many people carrying signs reflecting their beliefs. But wait. The people holding those signs don’t look even barely capable of...

    North Koreans are fighting starvation as the Hermit Kingdom continues its isolation from the rest of the world. Three residents of the totalitarian state secretly communicated with the BBC for months, detailing the horrors of watching their neighbors starve to death as they struggle to survive what may prove to be an even worse hunger crisis than North Korea’s famine in the 1990s, which killed three million people. “At first, I was afraid of dying from Covid,” one construction worker told the broadcaster, “but then I began to worry about starving to death.” Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic...

    Japan put its ballistic missile defences on alert on Monday and vowed to shoot down any projectile that threatens its territory, after North Korea notified it of a planned satellite launch between May 31 and June 11. The nuclear-armed North says it has completed its first military spy satellite and leader Kim Jong Un has approved final preparations for the launch. It would be the North's latest step in a series of missile launches and weapons tests in recent months, including one of a new, solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile. Tokyo expects North Korea to fire the rocket carrying its satellite...

    On the 27th, Vice Minister of the Workers' Party of Korea, Kim Yeo-jeong, announced a strong condemnation of the US support for tanks in Ukraine. In a talk that day, Vice Minister Kim argued, “The United States has made its stand against Russia (Russia) more clear by officially announcing that they will even provide tanks.” “We express serious concern over the actions of the United States, which is escalating the war situation in a cascading fashion by pushing combat equipment for ground attack into Ukraine, and strongly condemn it,” he stressed. Vice Minister Kim said, "I have no doubt that...

    While U.S. intelligence has been unable in two years to determine for sure if COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab, Congress has decided it no longer wants to take the risk of funding medical research at labs controlled by Beijing or other American adversaries.With little fanfare and in bipartisan fashion, House appropriators quietly amended the 2023 federal budget for health and science agencies on Thursday to ban any funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which U.S. intelligence fears may have been the origin point for the coronavirus pandemic, and other labs like it."None of the funds made available by...

    North Korea is preparing for its first nuclear bomb test in nearly five years, government sources in South Korea have told local media. Kim Jong Un's secretive regime appears to be hastily constructing a 'shortcut' to a tunnel at its nuclear test site in Punggye-ri in preparations for a seventh underground nuclear detonation, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported on Sunday. Warnings of the nuclear test, which would be the first since September 17, come just days after the North test-fired its massive Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile, which could deliver a warhead anywhere in the United States.

The world is only starting to understand the resulting geoeconomic and geopolitical consequences, but it is safe to say that they are and will be substantial and that North Korea is likely to benefit in economic, political and military ways. The most significant and tangible gains for North Korea will be economic. It is worth remembering that the severe economic crisis of the mid-1990s resulted from a sudden drop...

    Galloping through forest atop a white horse, Kim Jong Un stars in a new North Korean propaganda video that touts his economic leadership but ignores a recent spate of sanctions-busting missile launches. Pyongyang started the year by conducting a record seven weapons tests, including firing its most powerful missile since 2017, raising fears Kim could restart long-range or nuclear testing. But the government-produced documentary released this week highlights Kim's struggle to right the country's battered economy, which is reeling from a years-long blockade due to the coronavirus and international sanctions. "The overriding theme of the documentary is Kim's devotion to...
  • Treasury Targets Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Individuals Supporting Weapons of Mass Destruction and Ballistic Missile Programs

    Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated five Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) individuals responsible for procuring goods for the DPRK’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and ballistic missile-related programs. These actions are in line with U.S. efforts to prevent the advancement of the DPRK’s WMD and ballistic missile programs and impede attempts by Pyongyang to proliferate related technologies. They also follow the DPRK’s six ballistic missile launches since September 2021, each of which violated multiple United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs). “Today’s actions, part of the United States’ ongoing efforts to...
