While the White House remains tight-lipped, the Assistant Attorney General John Demers informed the American people that the United States has seized a North Korean cargo ship for attempting to break US sanctions by exporting high grade coal out of the Hermit Kingdom.

While the American media is busy playing Where’s Melania and the POTUS has them chasing their tails over strategically timed tweets, the Establishment Media has given very little coverage to quite the seismic shift that’s just taken place in North Korea.
As jointly reported by John Walcott and Josh Smith of the London-based Reuters news service, published via Business Live of Johannesburg, South Africa, Dear Respected Comrade has dumped three of his most senior generals;
North Korea’s top three military officials have been removed from their posts, a senior US official said on Sunday.
Kim Jong-un is preparing for a high-stakes summit with US President Donald Trump in Singapore on June 12, the first such meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting US president.
The US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was commenting on a report by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency that all three of the North’s top military officials were believed to have been replaced.
While the names of those both canned and installed are unfamiliar with most Americans, the positions they held are self-evident in their importance;
Citing an unidentified intelligence official, Yonhap said No Kwang-chol, first vice-minister of the Ministry of People’s Armed Forces, had replaced Pak Yong-sik as defence chief, while Ri Myong-su was replaced by his deputy, Ri Yong-gil.
North Korean state media previously confirmed that Army General Kim Su-gil had replaced Kim Jong-gak as director of the KPA’s (Korean People’s Army) General Political Bureau.
Walcott and Smith note that Kim’s removal and replacement of his top Flag Officers may have more to do with economics other than a much reported possibility of a military overthrow;
The move could support efforts by the North’s young leader to jump-start economic development and engage with the world, analysts said.
There’s been speculation a-plenty that Lil’ Kim is sweating-out a military takeover when he meets with President Trump in Singapore;
Kim is apparently concerned that the trip to Singapore may leave his government vulnerable to a military coup or that other hostile actors might try to depose him, sources told The [Washington] Post. The Kim dynasty has ruled North Korea since the country’s inception following the armistice in 1953.
Rumors of a simmering military revolt in North Korea are precisely the kind of thing that emboldened Kim to keep a tight grip on power over the years, according to some experts.
Rachel Maddow is living proof that liberalism makes you ugly, as seen in the above photo.
And as it turns out, liberalism also makes one dumber than hell.
In a mind-boggling example of the Trump Derangement Syndrome incarnate, PMSNBC anchor-thing Maddow is finding fault with President Trump accepting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s whimper of an “invitation” (Read: “Surrender”) in regards to de-nuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.
Only in the fevered, sick minds of liberals could President Trump be demonized in trying to find peace.
You simply won’t believe the patently stupid things Maddow has to say.
As just about the entire world already knows, President Donald Trump has accomplished something that Clinton, Dubya and Obama consistently failed at. Namely, breaking the Kim Dynasty and their grip on nuclear weapons.
But before I go any further, allow me to say… hey liberals, suck it.
With that out of the way, can you imagine just how pissed-off Democrats are?
Not only has The Donald bigly punked-out Lil’ Kim coming to the negotiations table, the North Korean despot will “refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests” according to Chung Eui-yong, South Korea’s national security director as reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
As the South Korean spy chief also noted, he delivered a signed letter personally signed by Kim. Shockingly enough, Kim admitted he “understood that the U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises that are scheduled for this spring ‘must continue.’”
Golly gee, ever get the feeling President Trump has his heel firmly clamped-down directly on Kim’s throat?
Yeah, he does. Yet again, I feel compelled to say, hey liberals, suck it.
In light of Trump’s steadfastness regarding the NoKo nuclear threat, the white-hot heat that burns deep in the hearts of members of the Jackass Party is something that just makes me so very, very happy.
And just to rub Democrat noses even harder in it, allow me to cite some of the text of Barack Obama’s citation 2009 Nobel Peace Prize; (emphasis mine)
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.
Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.
Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.
Like every head-to-head competition, Trump has proven that capitalists are the do-ers, while socialists like Obama may deliver snappy (and previously written) speeches, they rarely actually do anything.
Hey liberals, suck it.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! *Gasp* BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Snort* BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Cough* BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Wheeze* BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
I remember once hearing in passing, “As long as we have Britain, Australia, and Canada on our side, the rest of the world can go to hell.”
In light of the nuclear threat aimed directly at the United States and our allies in East Asia and the Western Pacific, we should add Japan and South Korea to that list.
But other than us, the Japanese and the South Koreans, no other nation has, at least publicly, openly declared military cooperation with the Washington-Tokyo-Seoul alliance.
That is, until now.
In recent reports by the Daily Mail and The Telegraph, the Brits are drawing up war plans against North Korea, to include the distinct possibility of deploying the recently commissioned HMS Queen Elizabeth to the Far East.
As the Daily Mail noted;
The Armed Forces are preparing for a potential war with North Korea, sources have revealed.
Officials have been instructed to draw up plans for how Britain would respond if war broke out with Pyongyang amid heightening tensions between the West and dictator Kim Jong-Un.
One option involves deploying Britain’s new aircraft carrier – due to be handed over to the Navy later this year – to the region before she has undergone flight trials.
Details of the secret operation plan have emerged after Donald Trump warned that ‘only one thing will work’ when it comes to dealing with North Korea, which has continued nuclear and rocket tests despite widespread condemnation.
The Telegraph also cited;
Among the plans disclosed by the Daily Mail is the deployment of the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, before it has undergone flight trials.
“We have plenty of ships to send… the Type-45 destroyers, the Type-23 frigates. Britain’s new aircraft carrier could be pressed into service early if things turn south,” a senior Whitehall source told the newspaper.
HMS Queen Elizabeth, which arrived at its home in Portsmouth in August after extensive sea trials, is not due to enter service until 2020.
The possible move to deploy it ahead of schedule drew comparisons with the start of the Falklands War.
“In the Falklands we had to react to an event and HMS Illustrious was accelerated to respond,” a Navy source told the Mail.
“This was a reaction to protect British territory, however. In this case [North Korea], the UK would be part of a united global coalition. We would see what support we could give.”
At first blush, Rep. Don Bacon comes off as a very loose cannon in the House of Representatives. To be honest, my first thought was that he was some big mouthed congressman from East Toilet Seat in desperate need of media attention.
As quoted by Karla James of the Nebraska Radio Network, Rep. Bacon stated “North Korea’s ICBM could hit anywhere other than Florida.” Continue reading “Man in the know: NoKo ICBMs can hit entire nation ‘other than Florida’”
When North Korea’s Kim Jong-un executes someone, it’s usually with the élan and flair reserved only for the especially psychotic. A prime example would be his latest rounds of executing those who’ve fallen from his favor.
With such grandiose titles such as “Great Successor to the Revolutionary Cause of Juche (self-reliance)”, “Outstanding Leader of the Party, Army and People” and “Respected Comrade who is Identical to Supreme Commander Kim Jong-il”, the rather pudgy dictator obviously wants nothing to do with rather mundane and anti-climactic forms of execution such as lethal injections.
While never serving in the North Korean People’s Army himself, Kim has quite the fondness for dispatching his enemies by way of military hardware.
Examples include ex-Vice Minister of the Army Kim Chol who was turned into hamburger via mortar barrage. Kim Chol was found guilty of “drinking and carousing during the official mourning period after Kim Jong-il’s death.”
Former Deputy Minister of Public Security O Sang-hon was roasted alive by a flame thrower. His crime? Being friends with Kim Jong-un’s uncle, Gen. Jang Song-thaek, who supposedly plotted to overthrow his nephew. Reportedly, Uncle Song-thaek and his entire family were executed.
But in Lil’ Kim’s latest, The Daily Caller reports;
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un executed another batch of senior officials, South Korea’s spy agency revealed Monday.
Kim pulled out the anti-aircraft gun for the execution of five senior officials, charged with submitting false government reports, according to South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS).
North Korea fired state security chief Kim Won-hong last month for corruption, abuse, and torture. The five officials reportedly killed by the regime worked in Kim’s office and were executed for providing inaccurate reports.
The false data provided by the officials is said to have “enraged” the young despot Kim Jong-un.
The NIS did not reveal how it obtained information regarding the most recent executions. As inside information about the internal affairs of the reclusive North Korean state is hard to come by, the accuracy of such reports is, to a certain extent, questionable.
Kim Jong-un reportedly has an affinity for killing people with anti-aircraft guns, the bullets for which would rip a human being apart.
For his part, reigning in a nation where upwards of a third of the population is starving, Kim has gone from rather chubby to criminally obese.
With his height has been estimated as somewhere between 5’7″ to 5’9″, Britain’s The Guardian notes that upon assuming power, Kim was weighed in at a plump 90 kg (198 lbs). But after four years of binging on food and booze “to cope with his constant fear of being assassinated,” he’s swollen to a hefty 130 kg (287 lbs).
The tubby tyrant has reportedly gained so much weight, that his skeletal frame has buckled under the strain. The Telegraph cites “Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, has become so fat while in office that his ankles have fractured under his own weight.”
The latest in North Korea’s Kim-family dynasty to cultivate their own self-deification would be the same one derisively referred to as “Lil Kim” by those who see though his often comical faux-aggrandizement. As reported by The Telegraph (of London, United Kingdom) on April 10, 2015, the super-human feats of the 300 pound tyrant who rules over a nation best known for nuclear weapons and millions of peasants starving to death were made public.
“Communist Party officials have reportedly been confiscating what little food there is…”
Instances of cannibalism in two of North Korea‘s famine-struck provinces are on the rise, as reported by London’s Daily Mail. What has been tagged as a “hidden famine,” the drought-plagued farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae have been hit so hard it’s been reported that up to 10,000 people have died of starvation.
Reports Of Cannibalism Slowly Surface…
One hunger-maddened Korean peasant reportedly killed both of his children for food. Undercover reporters from Asia Press told The Sunday Times (of London) that one man dug up his grandchild’s corpse and ate it.
The Sunday Times also quoted an official of the ruling Korean Worker’s [Communist] party as saying, ” In a village in Chongdan county, a man who went mad with hunger boiled his own child, ate his flesh and was later arrested.”
During the spring of 2012, the South Korean government reported that “one man was executed after eating part of a colleague and then trying to sell the remains as mutton.” With information from the North rare, at least one man killed and ate a girl and an additional report of cannibalism was recorded from 2011.
Another man was executed last Spring after murdering 11 people and selling the bodies as pork. There were also reports of cannibalism in the country’s vast network of notoriously barbaric prison camps.
To add to the misery, Communist Party officials have reportedly been confiscating what little food there is in the two starving provinces. According to demographics professor Thomas Spoorenberg and economics professor Daniel Schwekendiek, as many as 3,500,000 North Koreans have died of starvation from 1993 – 2008.
In a related story, due to growth in Korean children in the North being stunted by decades worth of starvation, the Pyongyang government recently lowered the height requirement to be conscripted into the Communist Army from 4′ 9″ to 4′ 7″ tall (145 to 142 centimeters).
That is the same height as the average American child at the age of 10 years, 3 months old, or that of the average South Korean 4th Grader. Most of the teenage boys [from N. Korea] stood less than 5 feet tall and weighed less than 100 pounds. In contrast, the average 17-year-old South Korean boy is 5-feet-8, slightly shorter than an American boy of the same age.
For an accurate contrast, an M-1 Garand rifle with fixed bayonet is 53.5 inches long. Whereas the minimum height for the North Korean People’s Army is 55 inches (4′ 7″).
