Joint S. Korea and USA Military Drill Shows Off Firepower in Response to Nork ICBM Threat That Allegedly Puts the U.S. within Range

There has not been an issue concerning whether the North Koreans would continue to test missiles. They are going to keep on keeping on.

The true unknown is what the United States government is going to do about it.

One theory you may run across on the Internet has President Trump going to war with the North with General Mike Kelly, his new Chief of Staff, advising him.

It’s hard to see how a war on the North would not inflict major damage on the South.

There’s a lot that Trump can do short of war, as detailed in this CNN piece.

If we’re not being conned by the (((neocons))) the way we were conned about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, then economic and diplomatic pressure will surely be applied to the Communist regime.

The following story about yesterday’s missile test explains why Trump is concerned, along with others in the region.

Excerpt from the The Globe and Mail

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Saturday the second flight test of an intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated his country can hit the U.S. mainland, hours after the launch left analysts concluding that a wide swath of the United States, including Los Angeles and Chicago, is now in range of North Korean weapons.

The Korean Central News Agency said that Kim expressed “great satisfaction” after the Hwasong-14 missile reached a maximum height of 3,725 kilometres and travelled 998 kilometres before accurately landing in waters off Japan. The agency said that the test was aimed at confirming the maximum range and other technical aspects of the missile it says was capable of delivering a “large-sized, heavy nuclear warhead.”

Analysts had estimated that the North’s first ICBM on July 4 could have reached Alaska, and said that the latest missile appeared to extend that range significantly.

Immediately after the launch, U.S. and South Korean forces conducted live-fire exercises. South Korean Defence Minister Song Young-moo called for the deployment of strategic U.S. military assets — which usually means stealth bombers and aircraft carriers — as well as additional launchers of an advanced U.S. anti-missile system.

Japanese government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said the missile, launched late Friday night, flew for about 45 minutes — about five minutes longer than the first. The missile was launched on very high trajectory, which limited the distance it travelled, and landed west of Japan’s island of Hokkaido.

The KCNA quoted Kim as saying that the launch reaffirmed the reliability of the country’s ICBM system and an ability to fire at “random regions and locations at random times” with the “entire” U.S. mainland now within range. The agency said that the test confirmed important features of the missile system, such as the proper separation of the warhead and controlling its movement and detonation after atmospheric re-entry.

Kim said the launch sent a “serious warning” to the United States, which has been “meaninglessly blowing its trumpet” with threats of war and stronger sanctions, the KCNA said.

The North Korean flight data was similar to assessments by the United States, South Korea and Japan.

David Wright, a physicist and co-director of the global security program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said that if reports of the missile’s maximum altitude and flight time are correct, it would have a theoretical range of at least 10,400 kilometres (about 6,500 miles). That means it could have reached Los Angeles, Denver or Chicago, depending on variables such as the size and weight of the warhead that would be carried atop such a missile in an actual attack.

President Donald Trump issued a statement condemning the missile test as a threat to the world, and rejecting North Korea’s claim that nuclear weapons ensure its security. “In reality, they have the opposite effect,” he said.

Trump said the weapons and tests “further isolate North Korea, weaken its economy, and deprive its people.” He vowed to “take all necessary steps” to ensure the security of the U.S. and its allies.

Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said he told U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a phone call that the second missile test greatly increased the threat from Pyongyang. He said two sides agreed to consider all means necessary to exert the utmost pressure on North Korea. They reiterated calls for new sanctions and to work closely together with South Korea along with efforts by China and Russia.

China, meanwhile, urged its ally North Korea to abide by U.N. Security Council resolutions and halt any moves that could escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Washington and its allies have watched with growing concern as Pyongyang has made significant progress toward its goal of having all of the U.S. within range of its missiles to counter what it labels as U.S. aggression. There are other hurdles, including building nuclear warheads to fit on those missiles and ensuring reliability. But many analysts have been surprised by how quickly leader Kim Jong Un has developed North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs despite several rounds of U.N. Security Council sanctions that have squeezed the impoverished country’s economy.

Trump has said he will not allow North Korea to obtain an ICBM that can deliver a nuclear warhead. But this week, the Defence Intelligence Agency reportedly concluded that the North will have a reliable ICBM capable of carrying a nuclear weapon as early as next year, in an assessment that trimmed two years from the agency’s earlier estimate.

Tough New Russian Sanctions Package Passes in U.S. Senate with Limits on Trump

These Senate pukes can vote 97 to 2 to screw over Russia and a chance for detente, but they can’t agree on the Wall, decent healthcare for working class Americans, and so forth.

They suck.

I congratulate the 2 who voted against this abomination that shows the crafty hand of the Jew behind it.

Vox

President Donald Trump campaigned on easing tensions with Russia, arguing that it would be in America’s best interest to try warming relations with Vladimir Putin.

But Congress is looking more and more likely to stand in his way. On Wednesday, the Senate overwhelmingly approved a series of sanctions to punish Russia for meddling in the 2016 US presidential election. The 97-2 vote approved an amendment to add the Russia sanctions to a broader bill originally drafted to pass sanctions against Iran.

That Iran sanctions bill, which now includes the Russia sanctions, is expected to come up for a vote in the Senate next week, according to a spokesperson for Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD). From there, the bill still has to be approved by the House and then by President Trump to be signed into law.

If passed, the new Russia provisions would make it more difficult for Trump to relax sanctions against the country. According to a press release, the sanctions bill would also:

— Impose new sanctions on: corrupt Russian actors; those seeking to evade sanctions; those involved in serious human rights abuses; those supplying weapons to the Assad regime; those conducting malicious cyber activity on behalf of the Russian government; those involved in corrupt privatization of state-owned assets; and those doing business with the Russian intelligence and defense sectors.

— Allow broad new sanctions on key sectors of Russia’s economy, including mining, metals, shipping and railways.

— Authorize robust assistance to strengthen democratic institutions and counter disinformation across Central and Eastern European countries that are vulnerable to Russian aggression and interference.

— Require a study on the flow of illicit finance involving Russia and a formal assessment of U.S. economic exposure to Russian state-owned entities.

It’s important to note that these sanctions haven’t passed, but Senate Democrats are optimistic Trump won’t veto them — in part because the 97-2 vote suggests that the Senate could override his veto.

“I would be very, very surprised if the president vetoes this bill. Now, he’s surprised me on a lot of things,” Cardin, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN. “I find as we get to the finish line on these bills, every administration generally joins us … so I think we’ll have the support of the administration. I’m confident about that.”

Democrats will welcome the news nonetheless. The opposition party has long feared that Trump would respond to Russian interference in the election by turning around and helping Putin. But for now, at least, Senate Republicans appear willing to tie his hands before he can reach out to Russia.

Incompetent Megyn Kelly’s Interview with Vladimir Putin was Falsified by NBC News in Order to Promote War

NBC News (Mark Dice calls it Nothing But Crap) has been caught falsifying Megyn Kelly’s interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin via some sneaky cuts from Putin’s answers.

The goal appears to be to make Putin look bad in order to promote the (((Deep States’))) goal of war with Russia.

Lew Rockwell

Dear NBC News Team,

Congratulations! You have graduated from fake news to falsified news, arriving at a journalistic level that is identical to that in the Soviet Union in its heyday.

A couple of days ago, the political talk show moderated by Vladimir Soloviev on state television channel Rossiya 1 broadcast two versions of a segment from Megyn Kelly’s interview with Vladimir Putin last Friday in the St Petersburg on the sidelines of the International Economic Forum. One was the complete, uncut version that was aired on RT. The other was the cut-to-shreds version that you put on air for the American audience. (Watch here, beginning 4 minutes into the program.)

Unless you understand Russian, the first part of video isn’t going to be of value. At about the three minute mark Megyn appears with Putin and it all turns to English.

The segment was Megyn Kelly’s aggressive question to Putin, asking his response to what she said was Americans’ understanding of his government, namely one that murders journalists, suppresses political opposition, is rife with corruption, etc., etc. In the NBC version, Putin’s answer has been cut to one empty introductory statement that “Russia is on its way to becoming a democracy” bracketed by an equally empty closing sentence. In the full, uncut version , Putin responds to Kelly’s allegations point by point and then turns the question around asking what right the USA and the West have to question Russia’s record when they have been actively doing much worse than what was in Kelly’s charges. He asks where is Occupy Wall Street today, why US and European police use billy clubs and tear gas to break up demonstrations, when Russian police do nothing of the sort, and so on.

In a word, you intentionally made Putin sound like an empty authoritarian, when he is in fact a very sophisticated debater who outranked your Megyn at every turn during the open panel discussion in the Forum, to the point she was the laughing stock of the day.

Who wins from these games? You are only preconditioning the American public for the war that is coming, whether by intention or by accident. And there will be no one left to have the last laugh after the first day of that war. So you can forget about your stock options and retirement schemes, ladies and gentlemen of the News Team.

have a nice day

Putin Hints JFK Was Murdered By The “Deep State” Which Is Now After Trump And Russia

Zionist moron Megyn Kelly somehow got an interview with one of the most serious men in the world.

Kelly is destroyed by Putin. The 7 minute video is embedded at the bottom of this post. Watch him insult the most hated reporter on the planet. The JFK material comes near the end of the story.

Like Trump, Putin plays 8D chess.

Zerohedge

In Megyn Kelly’s much anticipated interview with Vladimir Putin for her debut episode of NBC’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly”, the Russian President said he never met Donald Trump during his business trips to Russia (including Trump’s 2013 visit to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant), stated that he was unaware of any proposal from Jared Kushner to set up an alleged “secret line” of communications between the Trump administration and the Russian government, and that it’s “nonsense” to say Russia has collected compromising material about Trump among many other topics covered in the 7 minute interview (see below).

“I am not aware of such a proposal,” Putin said referring to Kushner’s alleged proposal. “No such proposal ever reached me.” Putin said many CEOs of major U.S. companies visit Russia and then asked rhetorically, “do you think we’re gathering dirt on all of them right now or something?” Putin asked, before saying: “Have you all lost your mind?”

Drudge Dredges Up 2014 Story About Obama’s Secret Outreach to Russia to Help Embattled Trump

“NOT EXACTLY CHUMMY” READS THE CAPTION AT BLOOMBERG.

By now, you know the script. You could probably write some of fake news that the MSM writes.

Whenever President Donald Trump does what his predecessors have done during the normal course of business, just write a slanted article that demonizes the “orange cheeto.” Ever notice the liberal’s anti-white racism in drawing attention to Trump’s color? The MSM never gave Obama insulting nicknames related to black: black spade, black mack daddy, black cloud, etc.

(((Matt Drudge))) does what he can to balance out the unrelenting negative media coverage of Trump. The linked excerpt from Bloomberg is the big headline on Drudge tonight: JARED WHO?
INSIDE OBAMA’S SECRET OUTREACH TO RUSSIA

Bloomberg December 31, 2014

President Barack Obama’s administration has been working behind the scenes for months to forge a new working relationship with Russia, despite the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin has shown little interest in repairing relations with Washington or halting his aggression in neighboring Ukraine.

This month, Obama’s National Security Council finished an extensive and comprehensive review of U.S policy toward Russia that included dozens of meetings and input from the State Department, Defense Department and several other agencies, according to three senior administration officials. At the end of the sometimes-contentious process, Obama made a decision to continue to look for ways to work with Russia on a host of bilateral and international issues while also offering Putin a way out of the stalemate over the crisis in Ukraine.

“I don’t think that anybody at this point is under the impression that a wholesale reset of our relationship is possible at this time, but we might as well test out what they are actually willing to do,” a senior administration official told me. “Our theory of this all along has been, let’s see what’s there. Regardless of the likelihood of success.”

You can read the rest of the article by clicking on the link.

The point is that the MSM proves over and over that it’s nothing but the propaganda arm of the Deep State. No one accused Obama or Hillary Clinton or John Kerry of being a Russian agent for Obama’s outreach. The mainstream press is made up of liars, garbage people.

Alt-news reporter Jack Pesobiac makes the point in his latest Tweet.

Nork Launches Another Missile: US DOD Says War a “disaster”

MOCK NORTH KOREAN SCUD-B MISSILE, CENTER LEFT.

Well, it’s bigger than a bottle rocket, but not much bigger than the little dictator Kim Jung Un himself.

I’m talking about the North Korean Scud missile launched yesterday.

It landed in the Sea of Japan, short of Japan, but endangering shipping and air traffic.

RT

North Korea has launched a short-range ballistic missile which flew around 450 kilometers before landing in the Sea of Japan, some 300 km off the Japanese islands. Tokyo and Seoul strongly condemned Pyongyang’s move, the latest in a series of recent missile tests.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said Pyongyang launched at least one projectile in the eastern direction from Wonsan, Gangwon Province at dawn.

“It is estimated to be a Scud type [missile],” the JCS said, adding, that the projectile flew about 450 kilometers. “The president was immediately notified of the situation, and the president ordered the NSC Standing Committee at 7:30 am.”

“So far, the assessment is there was at least one missile but we are analyzing the number of missiles,” JCS spokesman Roh Jae-cheon said, adding, the missile reached an altitude of 120 km (75 miles).

US President Donald Trump has also been briefed about the launch, according to a White House official. The missile was tracked by the US military for six minutes, Pacific Command said, confirming that the projectile landed in the Sea of Japan. The US military said it did not pose a threat to North America.

Sputnik News reports that U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis has responded to the news by stating a grim reality.

US Defense Secretary James Mattis said on Sunday that possible war with North Korea would be a disaster affecting all the nearby countries in the region, including China and Russia. He stressed that the fact that Pyongyang possesses “hundreds of artillery cannons and rocket launchers” within range of South Korean capital of Seoul would make the potential conflict particularly dangerous.

Obviously, if your rule were threatened by the world’s greatest military might you would at least think about sabre rattling to keep the enemy at bay.

King Jong Un, as I’ve said before, is probably just a figurehead. The reality is that a group of generals actually rule North Korea. Kim is just a face that serves a useful purpose for the true rulers.

WHEEEE! THAT WAS FUN! LET’S SET OFF ANOTHER BOTTLE ROCKET.

You have to guess that the West is paying off some traitors inside North Korea to try to effect some regime change in order to install an new ruler who will do exactly as the U.S. wants. That must be some real cat and mouse game that’s being played out, never to be seen by the public.

Breaking! Evil Globalist Leader Zbigniew Brzezinski Finally Dead at 89

Zbig is often characterized as being against Jews. Interesting, considering that his foreign policy positions benefited Jews.

It’s an easy call to label Zbig an evil warmonger because that’s what he was.

New York Daily News

Zbigniew Brzezinski, a longtime political scholar who served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, died Friday. He was 89.

His daughter, Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” confirmed his death in an Instagram post Friday night.

As one of Carter’s top aides from 1977 to 1981, Brzezinski played a role in major events including the Camp David Accords, the Iran hostage crisis and the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan.

Brzezinski was a well-known foreign policy expert both before and after working in the Carter administration. He was often called in by later Presidents to weigh in on global issues.

Here’s four minutes of truth about Zbig.

Trump’s troubling security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn
Until his death, Brzezinski was a professor at Johns Hopkins University and worked at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.

A native of Poland, he was staunchly against the Soviet Union.

He was a driving force behind helping to arm Islamic troops fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan after its 1979 invasion.

Brzezinski was also influential in Carter’s efforts to normalize relations with China — even supporting their aid to Cambodian warlord Pol Pot to counter against the Soviet-backed Vietnam.

But the hawkish Democrat often clashed with Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Sr. Their quarrels led to Vance’s departure in April 1980. The top diplomat deemed his colleague “evil,” the New York Times reported in 2002.

Brzezinski was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1928, the son of a diplomat. His family fled to Canada in the buildup to World War II.

The video above provoked a few comments that Zbig was an Israeli shill, criticizing Israel to remain believable.
