Mike Pence Makes Stunning Move When North Korea Is Welcomed At The Olympics

Vice President Mike Pence finally took a knee — not for the National Anthem, but for the brutal North Korean regime run by dictator and propagandist Kim Jong-Un.

During the welcoming reception at the 23rd Olympic Winter Games in South Korea, in which countries from all over are recognized, North Korean athletes appeared.

And despite applause and acknowledgment from the crowd and the leaders of North and South Korea within an arms length, Vice President Pence and his wife remained seated and simply looked onward.

Here’s a picture of the moment — Mike and Karen Pence are not having it:

They’re not wrong in sitting — the United States has no alliance to North Korea, only hostility propagated by the North and the evil regime run by Kim Jong-Un.

And Pence wasn’t fazed at all by the pressure of Kim Jong-Un’s sister being seated within just feet of him.

Here are more details, according to Time:

North Korea sent some of the highest level officials ever to the south for these games, the result of diplomacy by Seoul that led to an agreement between the two countries — still formally at war — to participate together in the Winter Games. Athletes from the two countries formed a joint women’s hockey team.

However, Pence is not letting up on the tough rhetoric he’s been delivering since arriving in Asia. Speaking to NBC’s “Nightly News” on Thursday, the vice president continued to stress that the US would protect itself from North Korean nuclear threats by taking whatever “action is necessary to defend our homeland.”

Officials traveling with Pence said it would be fair to characterize his failure to interact with the North Koreans as a mutual decision, with neither side making any public overtures.

Pence was in close proximity to the North Korean party both at the VIP reception and later, watching the opening ceremony from South Korean President Moon Jae-in box, which included Kim Yong Nam and leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong.

That said, these officials said that if the North Koreans had approached Pence with pleasantries, he would have responded in kind.

As for sharing Moon’s box with the North Koreans, the officials said they knew in advance who was going to be in Moon’s box to watch the opening ceremony. They said Pence could have opted to sit with the US delegation and avoided the box that included the North Koreans.

Nuclear Missile Test Has Deadly Consequences For North Korean City

North Korea is becoming a daily problem. The rogue nation won’t rest until it drags the world into conflict. It’s dictator, the fat Kim Jong-un, promised to destroy America and our allies. Their aggressive missile testing is hurting more than its enemies.

The people of North Korea suffer. That’s one of the biggest tragedies of the corrupt regime. Kim Jong-un pushes for better weapons. Meanwhile, his people starve. Even soldiers are malnourished and sick. What can be said of the civilians?

Now we are learning that Un’s insane weapons program is hurting his own people. A missile test earlier in 2017 costed significant damage to a North Korea city.

From Fox News:

An intermediate-range missile launched by North Korea last April crashed into a town near Pyongyang, possibly causing an explosion and casualties, The Diplomat reported on Wednesday.

The IRBM was launched April 28, 2017 near Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province and was the third in a series of failed launches that month, the report said.

The missile crashed into the city of Tokchun after one minute of powered flight, the report said. The explosion caused “considerable damage to a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings,” the report said, citing a U.S. government source with knowledge of the program.

The secretive regime makes it nearly impossible to determine the extent of damages. The online magazine theorized that if the missile hit a populated city, the result could have been catastrophic…

North Korea has repeatedly launched missile tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions throughout 2017. When the missiles are launched, they are not accompanied with any formal warning or notice, leaving neighboring countries and the United States left to interpret Pyongyang’s intentions. 

Kim Jong-un is an incompetent, corrupt dictator. He clearly does not care about the welfare of his people. He gets (or stays) fat, while they starve. Whatever resources the country owns get wasted on missile programs. Now we know that vital structures are being damaged.

What will it take to bring North Korea in check? Its citizens are in need. Sanctions meant to punish the government hurt the people as well. Meanwhile, a black market from China ensures that only the wealthy get what they need.

Things will have to change soon. Either Kim Jong-un will attack or the people will revolt. Un will force America and the international community to act. Or his people will revolt, much the way Iran’s people are. The terrible conditions cannot last forever.

Let’s hope things will change soon, for the better.

Report: NK Launches Missile, Accidentally Hits Unintended Target

North Korea’s dictatorship has long been known for brutalizing its own citizens while thumbing its nose at the world with its nuclear missile program.

But a new report shows the Kim Jong Un regime might have gone even further:

It may have brutalized its own citizens with a missile shot that went bad, and struck one of its own cities.

According the international magazine The Diplomat, a medium-range rocket fired from an airfield about 40 miles north of the capital of Pyonyang ended up hitting a building in Tokchon, a city of 200,000, about 50 miles from its launching site.

Citing an unnamed source in the United States government, The Diplomat reported that the missile’s engines failed about one minute into its flight, on April 28, 2017.

If the flight had finished successfully, the missile likely would have landed in the Sea of Japan, The Diplomat reported.

The Diplomat did not speculate about casualties on the ground.

“It’s impossible to verify if the incident caused any loss of life and, given the time of day the test occurred and the location of the impact, it may be likely that few, if any, casualties resulted from the incident,” the magazine reported.

However, there was considerable damage to an agricultural complex that was apparently struck by the errant missile.

“An image from Google earth of the complex show ground disturbances in an area that previously contained a building with fencing, also showing that a portion of the seasonal greenhouse had been damaged near the side of the complex where the debris fell,” The Diplomat reported.

Obviously, it’s bad enough that the North Korean government puts its own miserable population in danger with its slipshod approach to safety with deadly missiles.

But as The Diplomat points out, a similar problem with another missile could have much more far-reaching consequences:

“… (S)should a future North Korean missile overflying fail at the wrong moment during its powered flight phases, its trajectory may come to resemble an attack on Japan. Even with a dummy payload, an incident like that could spark a serious crisis in Northeast Asia. North Korea’s missile tests, which violate its obligations under United Nations Security Council resolutions, come with no formal warning or notices to airmen, leaving regional states and the United States to their own devices in interpreting Pyongyang’s intentions once the engines are ignited.”

Interpreting the intentions of dictator Kim Jong Un and his regime is never easy, and it’s easy to envision the military forces of the United States and Japan assuming that a North Korean missile hitting Japan was the start of a military conflict initiated by the Pyongyang regime.

Considering the tensions between the United States and North Korea – despite a recent feeler by the Kim regime to the South Korean government – it’s entirely possible that could lead to an overwhelming attack by the United States and its allies.

And if that happens, Kim Jong Un is going to realize that his mistake wasn’t in having a rocket that failed – it was in challenging the world’s only superpower in the first place.

NO WAY: Nikki Haley Says US Will NEVER ACCEPT Nuclear North Korea

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley doubled-down on the Trump administration’s position that Kim Jong Un must totally abandon his nuclear program, warning the world body that the US is absolutely unwilling to co-exist with a nuclear-equipped North Korea.

According to CNN, Haley was addressing world leaders when she confirmed President Trump’s decision that the communist regime must totally abandon its nuclear and missile programs or face the full-might of America’s military.

“As we hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test — I hope that does not happen, but if it does — we must bring even more measures to bear on the North Korea regime,” said Haley. “The civilized world must remain united and vigilant against the rogue state’s nuclear arsenal. We will never accept a nuclear North Korea.”

The Ambassador was then asked to weigh-on on Kim’s olive branch to South Korea earlier this week, hoping for high-level talks between the communist nation and staunch US ally.

“We won’t take any of the talks seriously if they don’t do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea. We consider this to be a very reckless regime, we don’t think we need a Band-Aid and we don’t think we need to smile and take a picture,” she added. “We think that we need to have them stop nuclear weapons and they need to stop it now.

FURIOUS: Moments After North Korea Fired A Missile, Trump Shot Back With A Vegeance

Earlier today the North Korean madman Kim Jong Un fired off ANOTHER missile towards our allies in Japan despite knowing the consequences of their actions.

While nobody (that we know of) was hurt, their intentions were very clear. Before the missile even exploded, President Trump was meeting with his top military officials (including Mattis) to deal with the ruthless provocations.

The President then arranged a press conference on the topic. Without giving anything away, Trump shot a clear message to North Korea by telling the press, simply:

“We will take care of it. It is a situation that we will handle.”

Nobody knows exactly what President Trump has planned. Then again, that’s the way the president likes to keep things.

Even Secretary of State Rex Tillerson seems to have turned a corner on Kim. Despite Tillerson’s frequent advocating for a peaceful resolution, this last launch changed that promise.

“Diplomatic options remain viable and open, FOR NOW!”

That’s big talk from a guy who tends to be the good cop to Trump’s bad cop. I guess, for now, we just gotta see where it goes.

Tell us in the comments what y’all think Trump should do to handle North Korea.

PHOTOS: Trump’s Convoy Passes Vietnamese Street, Sign In The Crowd Leaves POTUS Speechless

President Donald Trump’s twelve-day trip through Asia has been a historic journey thus far. However, what happened after he landed in Vietnam on Friday took the cake. As Trump’s convoy was traveling down a street in Da Nang, he spotted a sign being held by a Vietnamese man in the crowd, and it left him speechless.

President Trump landed in Vietnam on Friday ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Da Nang, marking the fourth leg of his overseas trip, which began in Japan. There, Trump met with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, an important ally against North Korea’s nuclear-crazed dictator Kim Jong-un.

From Japan, Trump headed to South Korea, where he was treated to a hero’s welcome. It had been speculated that there was some sort of diplomatic tension between the U.S. president and President Moon Jae-in, the leader of South Korea, but those rumors were put to bed when President Moon surprised Trump at Camp Humphreys, a U.S. military base in South Korea.

President Moon’s move to meet Trump at the base broke with protocol and was not previously scheduled, thus, it was taken as a gesture of extreme respect and gratitude towards the American president which did not go unnoticed.

There is a typical protocol when diplomats from different countries meet each other, but President Moon Jae-in shocked President Donald Trump when he met him personally after Trump had landed at Camp Humphreys, a military base located in South Korea. Moon Jae-in was patiently waiting for Trump as he deplaned at the military base. This is a break in the typical protocol and is officially an honor that no other US President has experienced before.

After his successful stop in South Korea, Trump moved on to China. Instead of forcing the president to exit from the “ass” of Air Force One when he landed, which was done to Obama, the Chinese rolled out the red carpet for Trump, treating him to a full military orchestra and children who were waving American and Chinese flags.

The accolades followed Trump to Vietnam on Friday, where the president was met by throngs of foreign supporters who flocked to the roadside just to get a glimpse at his presidential motorcade. In the midst of the crowd, one man stood out. He was holding a homemade sign which read, “Welcome The President (Angel) of America Donald Trump To Da Nang, Vietnam.”

Oddly enough, this story has not been reported by the media at all. Literally. Try searching the words on the man’s sign. You’ll come up dry.

Indeed, these photos were buried in the bowels of the internet, and we just so happened to come across them today in the midst of our coverage of Trump’s visit to Vietnam. Coincidence? I think not.

If it had been Barack Obama who was hailed as the “angel” sent from God to save America and the world from the depths of destruction, you can bet that every news channel under the sun would be covering this story. The photos of the man’s sign would have instantly gone viral; they’d have been passed around social media so much at this point that everyone would have already heard this story.

But, have you seen these pictures of the sign a Vietnamese man made for Trump anywhere else? Nope. Not at the time this report was written, anyway.

This is Donald Trump we are talking about, not Barack Obama, so the story has been completely buried. Please share this news about the warm welcome President Trump received in Vietnam because the media is trying to make him out to be some kind of bumbling buffoon on his overseas trip, when, in reality, he is beloved around the world.

President Trump Scraps ‘Surprise’ Visit to North Korea Military Border ‘When Seconds Away’

Donald Trump payed a surprise visit to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) near the border with North Korea.

The surprise visit however didn’t happen because of “poor weather.”

However the visit could have been historic.

Trump’s presence near the demarcation line that passes through the center of the 2.5-mile wide, 155-mile-long strip of land would have carried particular significance at a time when regional tensions are high over Pyongyang’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programmes.

Many South Korean politicians and observers expressed relief at initial reports Trump would be skipping a trip to the area.

Donald Trump has scrapped a surprise visit to the demilitarised zone (DMZ) near the North Korea border, it has been revealed.

President Trump was minutes from landing in a helicopter near the heavily fortified area but the plan had to be scrapped due to “poor weather”, according to the White House.

The visit would have marked a historic step closer by Trump to Kim Jong-un with whom the Republican has been engaged in an escalating war of words since he took office earlier this year.

The move comes amid fears North Korea could launch a deadly nuclear weapon during Trump’s South Korea visit.

Air Force One landed in South Korea yesterday as part of his 12-day Asia tour with his wife Melania.

Just after 7am (22:00 GMT Tuesday) the motorcade left Trump’s hotel in downtown Seoul, arriving 10 minutes later at Yongsan Garrison, a US military base.

Helicopters carrying Trump and his entourage took off from a sports field on the base, camouflage-clad men seated at the back of the aircraft.

Weaving through the dense fog that shrouded Seoul’s skyscrapers, the helicopters were only minutes away from landing at the DMZ when they turned back to the base.

“There wasn’t enough visibility to land,” Sanders said. “It would have been really dangerous, and our guys pulled back.”

What do you think would have happened if President Trump landed at the DMZ?
Would he met up with Kim Jong-un?

BREAKING NEWS ABOUT NORTH KOREA – HYDROGEN BOMB KILLS HUNDREDS

 

 

Just like it’s a bad idea to give a child explosives, it’s a bad idea to give the North Koreans nuclear weapons.

The rogue regime has been testing nuclear weapons now for years, but the latest subterranean experiment went horribly wrong. According to Yahoo! News, Kim Jung Un’s military was testing its sixth and largest nuclear weapon back on September 3 when the tunnel being used collapsed.

At the time, around 100 people were buried in the radioactive rubble, but rescue efforts were still undertaken to try to save anyone who may have survived. But things took a turn for the worse during the rescue operation and the tunnel collapsed further, entrapping and killing another 100 people.

Yahoo! reported:

More than 200 people are feared to have died when a tunnel caved in at North Korea’s nuclear test site after its latest detonation, a Japanese news report said Tuesday.

A tunnel collapsed at Punggye-ri in early September, days after North Korea conducted its sixth and largest underground nuclear test on September 3, TV Asahi said, quoting unnamed North Korean sources.

Some 100 workers were involved in an initial collapse. Another cave-in occurred during rescue operations, leaving at least 200 people feared dead in total, the Japanese broadcaster said.

The accident was triggered by the test, TV Asahi added.

Experts have warned that the underground tests could cause the mountain to collapse and leak radiation into the atmosphere near China’s border.

The latest test — the sixth at the site since 2006 — triggered landslides in the detonation area and beyond, according to satellite pictures taken the day after.

As Yahoo! noted, it’s extremely rare for the North Korean regime to acknowledge accidents in their country, let alone accidents involving its nuclear program, which is why we’re only learning about it now.

“We are aware of the report but do not know anything about it,” Lee Eugene, a spokeswoman at South Korea’s unification ministry, said.

The devastating report comes as President Trump plans to visit the region next week and show solidarity with North Korea’s southern neighbors. However, it’s unclear if it will have any effect on the President’s plans.

According to the Telegraph, the test that triggered the collapse was the North’s first hydrogen bomb, which are for more powerful than conventional nuclear weapons. Analysts estimate the yield of the weapon at roughly 280 kilotons, or about 16 times more powerful than the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The blast caused a 6.3-magnitude earthquake immediately after detonation, with another 4.1-magnitude quake following shortly after.

Experts warn that if the rogue regime continues to carry out nuclear tests in Mount Matap, that radioactive fallout could pollute much of the world.

“Based on our analysis of satellite imagery, we judge that there is a hollow space, which measures about 60 metres by 100 metres beneath Mount Matap”, Nam Jae-chol, the head of South Korea’s Meteorological Administration, warned. “Should another nuclear test take place, there is a possibility [of a collapse]”.

That collapse, Chinese scientists say, could contaminate the entire nation of China.

North Korea Just Spelled WAR With This UNPRECEDENTED Move

North Korea has reportedly been conducting evacuation drills in “secondary and tertiary cities and towns” all throughout the last week, according to Daily Mail.

The drills are likely a preparation tactic in anticipation of war, sources say.

Check it out:

‘I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS TYPE OF TRAINING EXERCISES BEFORE IN NORTH KOREA, BUT AM NOT SURPRISED,’ CHUN IN-BUM, A FORMER SOUTH KOREAN MILITARY OFFICER, SAID.

‘THEY MUST REALIZE HOW SERIOUS THE SITUATION IS.’

Sources say drills of this nature haven’t occurred since air raid drills were carried out in 2003.

The reports were revealed not long after Defense Secretary James Mattis spoke in Seoul, the capitol of South Korea, over the weekend.

‘MAKE NO MISTAKE – ANY ATTACK ON THE UNITED STATES OR OUR ALLIES WILL BE DEFEATED, AND ANY USE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS BY THE NORTH WILL BE MET WITH A MASSIVE MILITARY RESPONSE THAT IS EFFECTIVE AND OVERWHELMING,’ HE SAID.

Mattis went on to say that Kim Jong Un is at fault for knowingly breaking international laws and facilitating unneeded missile and nuclear weapons programs.

“I cannot imagine a condition under which the United States would accept North Korea as a nuclear power,” Mattis said during the conference.

Time will tell what comes of this conflict.

Kim Jong Un has continuously pushed the envelope with missile tests and other triggering military actions in the North, but no official moves of war have been made yet by either side.

Scores of people blame President Trump for escalating the situation in various ways, such as calling the hostile dictator “Rocket Man” on Twitter, for example, but reality is also that Kim has always been a threat and has used the possibility of nuclear capabilities as leverage with the United States for years.

NO MORE NICE TRUMP: Trump Just Released What Obama And Clinton Did To Help North Korea

President Trump claimed today that the US has been paying “extortion money” to North Korea for the past 25 years via the Hill. Obama and Bill Clinton and George W. Bush are all complicit in this massive failure.

“The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years,” Trump tweeted.

“Talking is not the answer!”

Trump’s tweet comes right after the Pentagon confirmed that North Korea fired a missile that flew over Japan’s airspace. The missile flew over Japanese airspace. The missile launch was a definite signal to the Trump administration that North Korea will not back down.

Trump is not going to back down against North Korea and further warned that threats would be met with “fire and fury.”

North Korea in response threatened to launch a missile into Guam earlier in the month. According to North Korea media, it’s most recent missile launch over Japan is a “prelude” to a military strike at Guam.

Bill Clinton didn’t deal with the problem well either? 

Trump is right. Our previous presidents have been paying extortion money to the North Korean government. This needs to stop.

Share this everywhere if you stand with Trump against the bullies in North Korea. We will not back down ever.
