Is there more to the denuclearization of North Korea story than meets the eye?

Could North Korea’s nice guy act be a ploy?

Published

The sudden reversal of attitude by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has been heralded throughout the world as one of the miraculous achievements of Donald Trump’s young presidency, but is there more to that story than meets the eye?

Over the course of the last few decades, North Korea has been viewed as one of the world’s strangest and least desirable nations to reside in.  The totality of the DPRK’s isolationism has had an incredibly detrimental effect on many industries within the tiny nation, most notably the medical fields and the food production industry.  As recently as the mid-1990’s, millions of North Koreans were perishing simply due to famine – a scourge that is nearly impossible to maintain in this modern age of connectivity.

As the nation poured millions into their nuclear program, their citizens were being arrested for harvesting grass from public parks to feed their families.

Trending: Trump Posts Ominous Message to Twitter with Saturday Deadline

This had raised many concerns over the true scope of North Korea’s nuclear program, and just how safe the entire debacle could be.  When you throw more than a few failed missile tests on top of this, you come away with the impression of a bumbling, poverty-stricken country whose entire output is being commandeered in order to nuke their way into the headlines.

Now, after a previously reported collapse at their main nuclear testing facility, new data seems to indicate that North Korea may be dealing with a much larger issue than a simple structural loss.  The DPRK could very well be in the midst of a full-blown, secret nuclear disaster.

An underground North Korean nuclear test in September last year exploded with 10 times the energy of the atomic bomb that exploded over Nagasaki in 1945.

It also caused parts of the overlying mountain peak to sink by half a metre and shift about 3.5 metres south.

Key points:

  • North Korea detonated a nuclear bomb under Mt Mantap on September 3, 2017
  • Using satellite measurements and seismic data, geophysicists calculated the strength of the test and its location — the first time satellite radar has been used this way
  • The blast was big enough to cause an earthquake and deform the mountain above

These are conclusions drawn by geophysicists, who used satellite radar and instruments that pick up waves travelling through the earth, to calculate the explosion’s depth and strength.

Now, some are growing concerned that this destructive incident could be far more detrimental than the tiny nation is letting on.

Some users on Reddit have even suggested that, given the sudden change of heart of Kim Jong Un, along with his bizarre haste to reunify the Korean Peninsula, that the dictator either scared himself straight with an accidentally “too powerful” explosion at the test site, or that perhaps Kim has grown paranoid that the U.S. may have interfered at the site, either by cyber warfare or more conventional means.

In either case, Kim could simply require the help of advanced nations in the cleanup of this mess, given North Korea’s severe lack of technological prowess.  Now, to save his nation, Kim is tucking his tail and running into the awaiting arms of President Trump and his South Korea counterparts.

WATCH: Reporters Disrespect America, Do the Unthinkable During National Anthem

Did they think we wouldn’t notice??

John Salvatore

Published

Before telling America he would compromise with Democrats to end the partial government shutdown, President Trump participated in a naturalization ceremony in the Oval Office.

No doubt a special moment for the new Americans.

No doubt a special moment for Trump, as well.

LOOK:

The pledge of allegaince was quickly followed by the national anthem.

What were a couple reporters caught doing?

Focus on the left side of the screen…

WATCH (around 1:09:45 mark):

Did you catch it?

You can clearly see at least two reporters typing away on their phones.

Talk about disrespect!

Facepalm.

Compromise means something to most people. To Democrats, it literally means nothing.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s perfect tweet drives that point home.

LOOK:

Spot on!

Rubio on the border:

President Trump is adamant that he wins in all scenarios, especially when it involves a promise he made to the people who put him in office.

As far as the border wall goes, it appears Democrats are beginning to show signs of giving in to the president’s wishes.

From Free Beacon:

Some Democratic lawmakers are beginning to crack on their opposition to the wall.

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR): “Some fencing has uses. Some barriers are useful.

Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL): “If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY): “There are areas along the border where there are currently fences that are put up or barriers that are put up that need to be enhanced.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD): “Certainly you need barriers and we support barriers.

Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD): “Certain physical barriers can make sense along the border, and a lot of places you already have that.

Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA): “I think there are parts of the border that would benefit from repairing fencing and other barricades that already exist there.

WATCH:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) put on a creepy performance after Trump addressed the nation on Tuesday night.

Twitter noticed.

From Fox News:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday night that President Trump used his prime-time Oval Office address to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his Administration.”

In a response delivered jointly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Schumer called on Trump to approve legislation ending the partial government shutdown “while allowing debate over border security to continue.”

“We can re-open the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy,” Schumer said. “We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall. And, we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security. The symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a thirty-foot wall.”

Pelosi only likes facts her party creates.

She hates actual facts.

Classic lefty, huh?

From Daily Wire:

In a tense meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about the U.S.-Mexico border — in which Nielsen was spieling out a slew of facts (the non-fungible kind) — Pelosi interrupted to declare: “I reject your facts.”

“The clash between the top House Democrat and a key member of President Trump’s Cabinet occurred during a Wednesday meeting in the White House amid the impasse over the government shutdown, with Trump standing firm and demanding $5 billion for the border wall,” Fox News reported.

Just a few years ago, Schumer spoke the same way President Trump speaks now about illegal immigration.

Just goes to show how political the border wall has become.

Did you know America has three coasts?

Pelosi has apparently clued the rest of us in on a monumental secret.

The next Speaker of the House struggled with U.S. geography on Thursday as she once again announced her opposition to a wall along the border with Mexico.

We, most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive, and the President said – he promised – he also promised Mexico would pay for it.

So even if they did, it’s immoral still, and then they’re not going to pay for it. So that isn’t how I would interpret a congressional – a continuing resolution.

[…]

We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts–North, South and West–and that’s the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.

Ocasio-Cortez Admits On Camera She Supports Anti-Semitic Women’s March (Video)

It’s unreal. Alexandria gets away with EVERYTHING!

John Salvatore

Published

on

The Democrat Party has a huge problem with anti-Semitism.

People who are honest with themselves will come to that conclusion.

Freshman Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) are two of the absolute worst offenders.

But they are hardly the only ones.

Fellow Freshman socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is now openly embracing the Women’s March, despite its leaders’ blatantly anti-Semitic remarks.

On Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) embraced the anti-Semitic Women’s March, just days after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other left-wing organizations cut ties with the movement over blatant anti-Semitism.

[…]

Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory recently defended calling Louis Farrakhan the “greatest of all time,” and refused to affirm Israel’s right to exist in two separate interviews.

Anti-Semitism within the Women’s March is so blatant that the DNC and far-left Emily’s List cut ties with the organization last week.

Ocasio-Cortez wouldn’t answer when asked the question: “Why are you standing with people who openly support Hamas, a terrorist organization that kills Jewish people?

WATCH:

AOC then very ignorantly blamed the Trump administration for being anti-Semitic.

Yeah, for real.

WATCH:

Five, six, seven, eight! America was never great!

Another clip:

Women’s Marches were canceled all over the country, including Chicago and California.

As far as the Golden State is concerned, the march was canned because too many white people signed up.

How funny.

From WJLA:

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”

How is it that so many millions of people can turn a blind eye to the harsh realities of the Democrat Party?

Ignorance? Willful ignorance?

Linda Sarsour, a far-left Women’s Marcher, has made some pretty anti-Semitic statements in the past.

For example, she said people should stop humanizing Jews.

For real. No joke. See below.

So then how does the national co-director of Code Pink say Sarsour is the greatest ally to the Jewish people with a straight face?

From Daily Wire:

Last night on Fox’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Code Pink’s national co-director, Ariel Gold, defended Linda Sarsour, claiming that the Jewish community has “no greater ally” than she.

Ingraham: “You say that Linda Sarsour is an ally of the Jewish people, then why would Jewish Americans like Jonathan Greenblatt— he is the head of the Anti-Defamation League— have a real problem with her statements?

Gold responded by calling it “disgraceful” that Greenblatt is “spending his time going after people who are our real allies. After the attack on Jewish cemeteries, Linda Sarsour raised over $100,000 after the Pittsburgh massacre, she raised over $200,000.”

Gold: “We have no greater ally in the Jewish community in this time where anti-Semitism is dangerously on the rise than Linda Sarsour.

WATCH:

Sarsour was arrested for civil disobedience during the Senate confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

A Muslim, Sarsour is a strong supporter of Palestine and has been known to take radical positions.

She got some very bad news recently.

The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.

“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

Will the top dogs in the Democrat Party, such as Sen. Chuck Schumer, himself a Jew, call out Sarsour?
