North Korea Taunts USA with New Weapons Test

North Korea has a history of diplomatic ebbs and flows, but this is the sort of bait-and-switch insult that could have Trump ready to wallop Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong Un

Perhaps it was always too good to be true.

Donald Trump, a President who was widely lambasted by the liberal left on account of his political inexperience, became an unprecedented hero in an unlikely situation with North Korea early into his presidency.

For reasons perhaps still unknown, Trump’s opening of a dialogue with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suddenly seemed to bring the DPRK back into the global community.  Part of this resurgence included, as it must, a promise of denuclearization by the hermit kingdom.

Somewhere along the way, things have fallen off the rails, likely at the behest of Kim himself.

Now, ever more astonishingly, the dainty despot is pushing the envelope even further with claims of a new weapons test.

North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon,” its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations.

The test, which didn’t appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness.

And that’s not all:  The DPRK is also now taking pot shots at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Separately, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance of comments by leader Kim Jong Un, who said last week that Washington has until the end of the year to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy. Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to North Korea’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations.

Was this all a ruse by North Korea, orchestrated to temporarily lighten sanctions placed on them by the Trump administration, or is something more nefarious in the works?

Given what we already know about the maniacal Kim Jong Un, it may be foolish to take any options off the table.

Justice Department Watchdog Claims To Have Evidence Comey Secretly Investigated Trump

Comey’s a total snake.

Published

on

When it comes to the investigation into possible Russia collusion concerning President Trump’s 2016 campaign, there’s a lot of unanswered questions, especially when it comes to the folks who were deadset on pushing this narrative in the media and tarnishing the president’s reputation. One of those questions has to do with why former FBI Director James Comey was privately telling Trump that he was not the subject of an ongoing probe, while also refusing to say that same thing out in public. That refusal is what sparked Comey’s termination from the FBI, the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and the whole charge that the president obstructed justice. Well, it seems there might be an answer emerging from the shadows, thanks to a Justice Department watchdog. via Real Clear Investigations: Now an answer is emerging. Sources tell RealClearInvestigations that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will soon file a report with evidence indicating that Comey was misleading the president. Even as he repeatedly assured Trump that he was not a target, the former director was secretly trying to build a conspiracy case against the president, while at times acting as an investigative agent. Two U.S. officials briefed on the inspector general’s investigation of possible FBI misconduct said Comey was essentially “running a covert operation against” the president, starting with a private “defensive briefing” he gave Trump just weeks before his inauguration. They said Horowitz has examined high-level FBI text messages and other communications indicating Comey was actually conducting a “counterintelligence assessment” of Trump during that January 2017 meeting in New York. Along with the addition of notes of his meetings and the phone calls he conducted with Trump to the official FBI case file, Comey also had an agent at the White House that reported to FBI headquarters with information…

OH…MY…GOOD…NESS!!

Then-GOP nominee Donald Trump was giving a speech. Rashida Tlaib was in attendance at the event in 2016, two years before she won her seat in Congress. She. Went. Bananas. Bonkers. Wild. Crazy. Nutso. SEE IT: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1152711615877398528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152711615877398528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Funhinged-video-emerges-of-screaming-rashida-tlaib-escorted-out-of-trump-rally-watch%2F Yeah. That’s a woman with a temperament to be in Congress, huh? Another angle: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1153086533894672384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1153086533894672384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Funcovered-video-shows-a-rabid-rashida-tlaib-being-tossed-out-of-trump-rally%2F Tlaib keeps getting so much attention because she keeps saying silly things. If she’s not wearing the Palestinian flag or meeting with anti-Israel activists she’s introducing articles of impeachment against Trump. If she’s not caught on video saying “impeach that motherf*****” Trump, she’s claiming all members of her party are racist. It’s kind of never-ending with this one. Now, Tlaib is saying she’ll go on a hunger strike in order to get ICE to “shut down.” Oh, and she wants her fans to follow her lead. From Free Beacon: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress. Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border. Tlaib noted, “It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress.” She added, “I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.” Concluding, “I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these…
