Kim Won’t Quit: Defiant Despot Driving Trump Mad with Missile Mayhem

Is ‘Rocketman’ looking for attention or annihilation?

North Korea

The North Korean playbook has been a simple one during the last six decades’ worth of isolationist nonsense.

The DPRK alternately “plays nice” and then antagonizes whomever on the world stage is currently controlling their purse strings, all in order to renegotiate their ever revolving carousel of international sanctions.

Their latest target has been the United States, with President Donald Trump openly willing to engage with the dainty dictator Kim Jong Un.

The two were allegedly working on a plan to denuclearize the hermit kingdom when Trump was forced to walk away – a move that has been seen by many as a negotiating tactic.

Kim Jong Un has been less than enthused with this move, and has been launching missiles for attention ever since.

NORTH KOREA ON THURSDAY launched two short-range missiles, marking the second weapons test in less than a week and further straining U.S.-led efforts toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

The South Korean joint chiefs of staff announced the launch in a statement, saying the missiles were fired from the northwest city of Kusong and traveled roughly 260 miles to the east. American negotiators are currently in South Korea for discussions on how to break the impasse following two high-level summits between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that failed to secure any lasting changes.

The launch comes less than a week after North Korea fired several short-range missiles on Saturday, the first such weapons test since November 2017. Trump has previously cited North Korea’s lull in missile and nuclear tests as evidence that his outreach to the Hermit Kingdom was proving successful.

North Korea is believe to have approximately sixty nuclear warheads in their arsenal, but doubts about the nation’s ability to successfully launch and detonate one are prevalent.

Kim’s attention grab comes as the United States finds itself similarly embroiled in an Iranian nuclear standoff as well.

GAME ON: Trump Gives Bill Barr Complete Authority to Declassify Origins of Russia Probe

HERE WE GO…

President Trump dropped a whopper on Thursday night. Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716323485073409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716323485073409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.” @PressSec https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716324751826949?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716324751826949&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F From Fox News: Trump claims his campaign was the victim of “spying,” though the intelligence community has insisted it acted lawfully in following leads in the Russia investigation. The president had told Fox News earlier in May that he would allow declassification “soon.” He elaborated, “I didn’t want to do it originally because I wanted to wait, because I know what they — you know I’ve seen the way they play. They play very dirty.” Last month, Barr ran into a buzz saw of criticism from Democratic lawmakers and media figures for testifying that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign in 2016. But despite the backlash, Barr appeared to be referring to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani weighed in: The President @realDonaldTrump made a wise decision to let AG Barr on the docunents. I don’t know for sure but I seriously doubt there’s any…

BOMBSHELL: Obama Admin’s Surveillance Of Reporters Is MUCH Worse Than Anyone Imagined

Kind of a big deal…

The Obama administration was supposed to be the most transparent in American history. Due to inept leadership, the entire country knows that that is not true. Now, it is being reported that the previous administration’s surveillance of reporters is way, way worse than anybody imagined. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: On Thursday, the Columbia Journalism Review reported on the results of a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the Obama Justice Department’s attempts to crack down on leaks to reporters which reveal that the Obama administration’s actions against the press “were broader than previously known.” […] “In 2013, the Justice Department launched a brazen attack on press freedom, issuing sweeping subpoenas for the phone records of the Associated Press and several of its reporters and editors as part of a leak investigation,” the authors report. While those subpoenas have long been understood as “a massive intrusion into newsgathering operations,” they note, the recently unearthed 2014 report reveals that the subpoenas targeting AP “told only part of the story.” The Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on the Obama Justice Department’s subpoenas of AP phone records reveals that “the DOJ’s actions against the AP were broader than previously known, and that the DOJ considered subpoenaing the phone records of other news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, and ABC News,” the authors explain. The report also reveals “how narrowly the DOJ interprets the Media Guidelines, the agency’s internal rules for obtaining reporters’ data.” Former Attorney General Eric Holder is still the only cabinet-level member in American history to be held in contempt of Congress. He might actually run for president in 2020. But first, Eric wants to do away with the “undemocratic” electoral college. Classic. He tweeted: A good reform measure to support. Change the…
