Dramatic Video Shows North Korean Soldier Escape

THE DEFECTOR WAS SHOT FIVE TIMES BY NORK SOLDIERS.

The press has been reporting that the unidentified North Korean defector’s medical progress has been slow because he’s eaten up by worms.

If we are to believe what we read in the press, the family of the defector has probably been executed by the North Koreans.

A North Korean soldier has been filmed racing for the border in a vehicle and then on foot before his former comrades shoot him at least five times as he limps into South Korea.

The defection, subsequent surgeries and slow recovery of the soldier have riveted South Korea, but it will be a huge embarrassment for the North, which claims all defections are the result of rival Seoul kidnapping or enticing North Koreans to defect. Pyongyang has said nothing about the defection so far.

North Korea’s actions during the defector’s November 13 escape at Panmunjom violated the armistice agreement ending the 1950-53 Korean War because North Korean soldiers fired across and physically crossed the border in pursuit of the soldier, US Colonel Chad G Carroll, a spokesman for the UN command, told reporters in a live TV briefing.

The video, released by the US-led UN command, shows the soldier speeding down a tree-lined road, headlights on, past dun-coloured fields and shocked North Korean soldiers who begin to run after him.

About 30,000 North Koreans have fled to South Korea, mostly via China, since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. A North Korean soldier defected via Panmunjom in 1998 and another in 2007 but neither of those events involved gunfire between the rivals.

Trump Tells Tillerson to Stop Wasting His Time Trying to Negotiate with Little Rocket Man

Donald Trump sent a message to Little Rocket Man, not really aimed at his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

That message has liberals riled up, as usual.

Being nice to dictators is the liberal way, not the Trump way.

Excerpt from CNN

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Sunday again mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should not bother trying to negotiate with him in an effort to stop the country’s development of nuclear weapons.

“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man…” Trump said on Twitter.

He continued, “…Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!”

CNN refers to Trump’s Tweets as “undermining” Tillerson. That’s a ridiculous characterization of the Tweets. Trump and Tillerson have been playing good cop/bad cop since Tillerson took office.

Trump’s tweets undermining his secretary of state follow his attacks Saturday on San Juan’s mayor over the Puerto Rico hurricane crisis and come a day after Tillerson said the US had direct lines of communication with North Korea and that he was trying to “calm things down” following months of escalating rhetoric over Pyongyang’s continued nuclear weapons and ballistic missile tests.

Tillerson, speaking at a press conference in Beijing, said the US made it clear through its direct channels to North Korea that it was seeking peace through talks.

“We’ve made it clear that we hope to resolve this through talks,” Tillerson said.

“I think the most immediate action that we need is to calm things down,” Tillerson added. “They’re a little overheated right now, and I think we need to calm them down first.”

Asked about Trump’s own rhetoric, Tillerson said the entire situation was “overheated.”

Trump’s tweets on Sunday seem to directly counter Tillerson’s stated goal to use direct communication to lower tension between the two hostile nations. The US and North Korea have ramped up their rhetoric about one another as Pyongyang continues to develop its nuclear weapons program.

Asked if the President’s tweets indicate he has decided to abandon the diplomatic track on North Korea, a senior administration official told CNN: “We are still committed to a diplomatic approach.”

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert tweeted about the US channels to the North Korean government shortly after Trump’s tweets Sunday.

“#DPRK will not obtain a nuclear capability,” Nauert tweeted. “Whether through diplomacy or force is up to the regime @StateDept.”

The most significant thing that Trump Tweeted is that Clinton, Bush, and Obama failed. Trump may fail too, if the goal is to disarm Rocket Man. Unless Trump has a surprise up his sleeve and not just Tweets.

Trump Praises China For Ordering Banks To Halt Business With North Korea

If you believe as I do that the North Korean threat is a psy op, engineered by the (((Deep State))) to add to the American military budget and to add to Israel’s aspirations, then you might not be impressed with the news about added sanctions on Kim’s regime. If you are inclined to believe the little fat boy is a real threat, then enjoy the good news that President Trump reported today at the UN.

Real Clear Politics

Sitting alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, President Trump praised the Chinese government for reportedly banning any of its banks from doing business with North Korea.

“You heard about China – what China was doing today, in terms of the banking system. That was a tremendous move,” the president said.

“I’m very proud to tell you that as you may have just heard moments ago, China, their central bank has told their other banks –that’s a massive banking system– to immediately stop doing business with North Korea,” Trump reportedly said off camera at the same meeting.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: It’s wonderful to have prime minister Shinzo Abe doing a great job for the people of Japan. He’s doing a wonderful job for the great people of Japan. We had discussions already today and this is a formalization of the discussions. We made a lot of progress both on trade and obviously, very importantly, we have discussed in great detail North Korea, with also South Korea, as you just saw.

So we will continue that dialogue — the relationship that has never been closer with Japan and the United States.

It will continue on with that way. I look forward to discussing some things that the group is here specifically to discuss, and we will be reporting back to you later.

Thank you all very much. You heard about China – what China was doing today, in terms of the banking system. That was a tremendous move and we have great respect and also would like to thank President Xi of China. It was a great thing he did today. Thank you very much. Thank you very much for being here.

If the whole North Korean situation is real, then Trump is doing better than Obama. That bar was set pretty low, however.

As they say, “It ain’t over til the fat lady sings.” This isn’t over yet.

I’m out of fat ladies. William Shatner will have to do. Trump’s inspiration–Rocket Man.

Styx: Trump Should Destroy North Korea

I’m surprised that peacemonger Styx is now on board with Trump’s threat to destroy North Korea.

He makes the best case that I’ve heard that the U.S. should take military action against the North.

Throughout the video, Styx points out the UN as a TOTAL WASTE. He also notes that Rocket Man has biological weapons that would spread and kill hundreds of millions in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Japan, India, and so forth.

Sample comments:

Best speech I’ve seen in years by anyone. He told the entire world American has it’s balls back. Obama’s years in a dress are gone. Trump is the big dog in the world and they all know it and it showed on their faces as he spoke. Rocket man…love it!

I love this! Trump is awesome!!,

“Rocket Man” is great persuasion just like “low energy” and “little Marco.” Next time he shoots off a missile people will laugh an say “There goes Rocket Man again. What a jerk”

Sorry Styx….666, I love your analysis normally, but I think you don’t realise the risks of an attack. Just stop those military exercises, and bring your boys back to the U.S. Let these people solve their problems.

Trump saying Rocket Man is on a suicide mission in the UN Speech had me dying in laughter!! It is fucking amazing and glorious to finally have a US president with a good sense of humor and mastered the art of making memes as opposed to Obummer.

Jimmy Carter: “I know what North Korea wants.”

Former American president Jimmy Carter doesn’t have a particularly stellar record in conducting foreign policy. He seems to be unable to break out of his Christian mindset long enough to recognize that there’s evil in the world that has to be dealt with harshly.

Since he’s offering advice about what to do with North Korea, let me briefly summarize my theory. Kim Jong Un is a CIA agent, constantly stirring up trouble in order to justify the huge American military presence in the Far East. I like to think of Kim as an actor playing a role in a Bond movie. If Kim did not exist, we’d have to create him. He’s great for the military-industrial complex budget.

Getting back to Carter, he claims the U.S. is an oligarchy, which there’s plenty of evidence to believe is true. However, Carter won’t name the (((oligarchs.))) As a Christian, he must believe they are God’s chosen people and that lightening would strike him dead if he said something bad about the tribe.

Zerohedge

Former US President Jimmy Carter repeated his assertion that the US works more like an “oligarchy than a democracy,” while also lambasting Trump’s “hopeless” approach to the increasing tensions with North Korea.

[4]

The former president was speaking at a ‘Conversation with the Carters’ event at his Carter Center in Atlanta on Tuesday. AP reports that he said money in politics is what makes the US more like an oligarchy – run by a small group of rich people – rather than a democracy, repeating an allegation he has vociferously uttered for a few years [5].

“[Money in politics] violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system.

Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for President or being elected President. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. Senators and congress members.

So, now we’ve just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over.”

Carter was referring to the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling to allow corporations to give unlimited campaign donations to political candidates, which he has previously said [6] was “the most stupid decision” the court had made.

But then the former President went to town on Trump and North Korea…

Carter said,

“The first thing I would do is treat the North Koreans with respect.”

“I know what the North Koreans want,” he said.

“What they want is a firm treaty guaranteeing North Korea that the US will not attack them or hurt them in any way, unless they attack one of their neighbors.” Carter said,

“But the United States has refused to do that.”

Carter said he would send his top person to Pyongyang immediately, adding:

“If I didn’t go myself.” The former president visited North Korea three times between 1994 and 2011.

“Until we’re willing to talk to them and treat them with respect as human beings, which they are, then I don’t think we’ll make any progress,” he said.

This North Korean girl band video was posted in a Zerohedge comment. It doesn’t fit the propaganda we’ve been fed about the Norks.

Theory: Nork Leader Kim Jong Un is a CIA Asset

HEADLINE PHOTO ON DRUDGE REPORT TODAY.

The rogue state of North Korea is at the top of today’s news since exploding a hydrogen bomb yesterday. I count 10 stories, linked in red print, on the Drudge Report about the test explosion.

The American press is giddy with talk of war.

Americans view the little gook dictator as both a joke and a threat. Many are gung-ho for killing the ridiculous little man.

Could Kim be a CIA plant tasked with driving South Korea and Japan into the arms of the USA? If he is our guy, we wouldn’t kill him as long as he was still useful to us.

Excerpt from Journal-Neo

What is Kim Jong Un?

Who or better said, what is Kim Jong Un? Since the death of his father in 2011 Kim Jong Un has consolidated power as absolute dictator. In December 2011 Kim became Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army. His earlier history has been carefully hidden. It has been verified that he attended school in Europe at Liebefeld Steinhölzli school in Köniz near Bern. Accounts say he lived in Switzerland, under a false name, from 1991 until 2000. There he reportedly developed a prodigious taste for French Bordeaux wines, Yves St Laurent cigarettes, Swiss Emmenthaler cheese and luxury Mercedes autos according to Kim Jong-il’s former personal chef, Kenji Fujimoto.

While Kim’s extensive stay in Europe might or might not have been the opportunity for US intelligence to nurture some kind of contact, Kim’s deeds since taking control have been a godsend to the US role in disrupting Chinese as well as Russian relations with both North Korea and with South Korea as well as with Japan.

One of Kim Jong Un’s earliest indications of a major shift in foreign policy away from Beijing came when he ordered the arrest of his uncle for treason in December, 2013. Jang Sung-taek had been vice-chairman of the National Defence Commission, second only to that of the Supreme Leader and was “key policy adviser” to the politically inexperienced Kim Jong-un on the death of Kim’s father. More importantly, Jang was well-known as China’s best friend in Pyongyang.

As Washington moved to implement its new Asia Pivot military encirclement policies against China, removal of Beijing’s most influential friend in North Korea would be very convenient, to put it mildly.

Kim Jong Un not only had Jang executed, Jang’s wife, Kim Kyong-hui, the only daughter of former North Korean supreme leader Kim Il-sung, the only sister of former North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-il and the aunt of Kim Jong-un, a General in the army and Politburo member, was reportedly poisoned on orders of Kim, though no confirmation has been possible. What is known is that Kim ordered the systematic execution of all other members of Jang’s family including children and grandchildren of all close relatives. Those reportedly killed in Kim’s purge include Jang’s sister Jang Kye-sun, her husband and ambassador to Cuba, Jon Yong-jin, and Jang’s nephew and ambassador to Malaysia, Jang Yong-chol as well as the nephew’s two sons. At the time of Jang’s removal, the Kim regime announced, “the discovery and purge of the Jang group…made our party and revolutionary ranks purer …”

Clearly, Kim Jong Un was just the kind of dictator Washington’s warhawks could “do business with.”

Kim’s War Threats

The timing and effect of Kim Jong Un’s bizarre threats to wage war against South Korea and other states of the region, including Japan, as well verbal threats to strike cities on the US West Coast since 2013, fit too neatly into the geopolitical agenda of Washington, but not against North Korea. The agenda of Washington was aimed rather against China and the Russian Far East.

In March 2013, North Korea’s Kim, absurdly enough, threatened the United States with a “pre-emptive nuclear attack”, and Kim Jong-un issued a detailed threat to “wipe out” Baengnyeong Island, under United Nations Command and South Korean control since the Korean War and scene of previous naval clashes. Under Kim Jong Un, North Korea has boasted of plans for conducting nuclear strikes on US cities, including Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Military experts suggest the threats were pure macho bravado and that Kim’s nuclear capabilities are bluff at least at this stage. It had the effect of painting Washington as a major enemy of Pyongyang, a useful cover for Washington however and creating the backdrop for Washington to promote its Asian military expansion, in fact aimed at both China and Russia, not Pyongyang.

It’s commonly believed that since the 1950’s Korean War, communist North Korea has been a Beijing puppet regime. It’s true that China is North Korea’s biggest trading partner, and main source of food, arms, and energy. It has also helped sustain Kim Jong-un’s regime, and has historically opposed harsh international sanctions on North Korea. However, the relationship is anything but congenial for Beijing. Their main concern is to keep their North Korea neighbor from exploding in chaos.

While China does maintain certain influence and while China sees North Korea as a buffer between it and the US-allied South Korea, Beijing’s ability to influence the erratic Kim Jong Un seems to be extremely limited, if at all, a significant change from earlier Kim dynasty dictators. The one power to gain from Kim Jong Un’s bellicose actions is the United States as geopolitical hegemon desiring to turn Japan and especially South Korea against China.

If this theory is correct, and it makes a hell of a lot of sense except for leaving out how Israel benefits, then Kim is just an actor, reading a script laid out for him by the American (((Deep State.)))

Traitor Obama KNEW That Nork had Nuclear Missiles Aimed at US and Ignored the Intel

I strongly suspect like many of you that the North Korean missile crisis is a (((Deep State))) psy op designed to draw the United States into war with North Korea, and possibly China and Russia.

When American intel says that Kim Jong Un has nuclear missiles that can hit targets as far away as New York City, why should we believe them?

Skepticism about what we are being told by the Deep State’s propaganda arm, the press, is a good habit to inculcate. After all, these are the people who told us that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

In the following piece, the mainstream press criticizes President Obama for ignoring the Korean threat. This criticism inflates man of action President Trump in the eyes of the people, thus building support for any military action he might decide to take.

Trump, by the way, may be as much a victim of the psy op as the rest of us. He seems to put a lot of trust in his generals, who cannot be counted on to tell the truth. Generals thrive on war, even if they sometimes claim to hate it.

All of this said, Obama would be a traitor in the moral sense if not the legal sense, if what you’re about to read is true.

PJ Media

You can chalk this up as another example of President Obama employing his signature strategy for dealing with sticky national security issues: Ignore, discredit or downplay. If the foreign policy crisis was too big to ignore, he would was give a speech — and kick the can down the road for another president to deal with.

In 2013, Obama not only downplayed the Defense Intelligence Agency’s intelligence report about Korea’s mini nukes — He attempted to discredit it. The White House media echo-chamber was — as always — happy to go along with the ruse.

Via Fred Fleitz, senior vice president for policy and programs with the Center for Security Policy at Fox News:

Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.

During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.

The Director of National Intelligence and Obama officials subsequently tried to dismiss Lamborn’s disclosure by claiming the DIA assessment was an outlier that did not reflect the views of the rest of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

All 16 remaining intel agencies, I’m sure.

The media could easily have turned this leak into a major front page story — like it is today — but after the Obama White house signaled to the echo chamber that the president didn’t want to deal with it — the story went away.

It was clear what Obama officials were doing in 2013. The DIA report represented inconvenient facts that threatened President Obama’s North Korea “strategic patience” policy — a policy to do nothing about North Korea and kick this problem down the road to the next president. Obama officials tried to downplay the DIA assessment to prevent it from being used to force the president to employ a more assertive North Korea policy.

Fleitz notes that it is significant that the Trump White House has not condemned the Washington Post story as a leak — probably because it was “an authorized disclosure of classified information to advance President Trump’s North Korea strategy.”

Obama concealed the intelligence so he could avoid taking any action against North Korea. The Trump administration, on the other hand, publicized the intelligence so American citizens could see seriousness of the threat and why decisive action is in order.

This short Nork video is impressive.
