RUMORS OF WAR: Time is running out! US prepared to destroy North Korea

RUMORS OF WAR: Time is running out! US prepared to destroy North Korea
Top officials in the Trump administration are warning North Korea: time is running out. The threat of a North Korean nuclear attack is growing after the regime launched another missile Friday, so now the U.S. is getting ready to play hardball. In other words, the United States may be forced to launch a strike against the North’s nuclear program, to defend the U.S. and its allies with military action.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told CNN this weekend she’s comfortable handing over the situation to Defense Secretary James Mattis and the Pentagon. “We have pretty much exhausted all the things we could do at the Security Council,” she said. “I’m perfectly happy kicking this over to General Mattis because he has plenty of military options.

Over 3,000 new US troops being sent to Afghanistan
US Defense Secretary James Mattis confirmed that over 3,000 new US troops will be headed to Afghanistan as part of President Donald Trump’s new strategy to win the war that has dragged on for almost 16 years. “It is exactly over 3,000 somewhat and frankly I haven’t signed the last of the orders right now as we look at specific, small elements that are going,” Mattis told reporters on Monday
afternoon. Earlier in the day, Senator David Perdue (R-Georgia) referred to “3,500 more troops” in an article published by Defense One. “For too long, America’s strategy in Afghanistan was driven by politics, leading to arbitrary troop caps and unreasonable timetables for troop withdrawal,” Perdue wrote, noting that enemies interpreted that as a lack of resolve. “Finally, the gloves are off.”

DEVELOPING: Reports of South Korean Plan to take out Kim Jong-Un
North Korea has made sudden progress in its nuclear and missile technology in recent months, and that has experts wondering, how are they doing this? Meanwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un vows he’s going to comple his nuclear weapons program despite sanctions and objections by world leaders.
CBN News has been working to explore what’s behind the rogue regime’s spike in missile launches and nuclear tests, and uncovering details about a new effort to potentially cut off the head of the snake.Investigators at MI5 in the United Kingdom believe Iran could be the driver behind North Korea’s advances in its nuclear weapons program.

‘A US trade war with China will end US monopoly on global financial system’
If the Trump administration puts sanctions on China, this would hurt America more because it just forces China and Russia and other countries to cooperate, says investor and financial commentator Jim Rogers. US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned on Tuesday that the US could impose economic sanctions on China if it does not implement the new sanctions regime against North Korea, saying that
the restrictions could involve cutting off Beijing’s access to the US financial system. “If China doesn’t follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the US and international dollar system, and that’s quite meaningful,” Mnuchin said at the Delivering Alpha Conference in New York City.

Russia Unveils Massive Military Force

Russia Unveils Massive Military Force
Russia has begun its biggest war game in years on land, in the air, and on the sea bordering NATO’s smallest and weakest member states. No fewer than 12,000 troops, 70 warplanes, 250 tanks, and 10 warships are officially scheduled to wage mock warfare from Sept. 14 to Sept. 20 in Belarus and Russia and on the Baltic and Barents Seas. The “Zapad 2017” training exercise, a joint effort between the
Russian and Belarusian militaries involves some of the latest Russian-made weaponry. But the war game is equally notable for the weapons that aren’t involved. Despite a resurgence under President Vladimir Putin, Moscow’s armed forces still can’t deploy stealth fighters or the latest tank models. And Russia’s sole aircraft carrier, the aged Admiral Kuznetsov, is also unavailable for training.

What would happen if Trump ordered the US military to Nuke North Korea?

What would happen if Trump ordered the US military to Nuke North Korea?
North Korea has continued to test America’s patience – sparking fears of World War 3. But what would happen if Donald Trump actually ordered the US military to nuke North Korea? North Korea fired a second ballistic missile over Japan on Friday, creating a new tension between Pyongyang and the West after a series of weapons tests by the rogue state.
The hermit nation sparked World War 3 fears when its leaders declared they had carried out a successful nuclear bomb test, claiming their weapon could be mounted to an intercontinental ballistic missile. Donald Trump is likely to react in a “strong” manner to the latest North Korean missile test after Pyongyang wasn’t deterred by a series of international sanctions designed to bring a halt to their missile program.

Fears of World War 3 Increasing as North Korea Continues Defiance
The outbreak of military conflict on the Korean Peninsula would be destabilizing and could possibly result in a global war, according to Citi’s top global political analyst. While it was impossible to put a number on the scale of the North Korea risk, war games carried out through history have simulated what could happen as a result, said Tina Fordham, managing director and chief global analyst at Citi. “A
conflict on the Korean Peninsula would not only be very disruptive in the region, but could potentially lead to World War III because of the U.S. security guarantee, so it would be internationalized overnight,” Fordham told CNBC’s “Street Signs” on the sidelines of the Milken Institute Asia Summit in Singapore.

WAR DRUMS: North Korea fires missile over Japan
North Korea fired an unidentified missile over Japan early Friday, the rogue nation’s first missile launch since its massive nuclear test more than a week ago, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News. The missile was launched eastward early Friday from Sunan, which is the site of Pyongyang’s international airport,
flying over northern Japan before it landed in the Pacific Ocean, according to U.S. Pacific Command. An initial U.S. assessment of the launch indicated it was an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM). In response to the test, South Korea launched a ballistic missile of its own to show it can reach North Korea’s launch site.

Russia kicks off largest War Games since Cold War
Russia kicked off what Western powers expect to be the country’s largest military exercise since the Cold War on Thursday, a massive mobilization of forces that has triggered unease among U.S. officials and their allies in Eastern Europe. Land, sea and air units will be taking part in war games across a huge area encompassing western Russia, Belarus, the Baltic Sea and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad. Moscow
says fewer than 13,000 troops are participating, meaning they don’t have to invite international observers. But NATO members and Western military experts believe as many as 100,000 troops may be involved in the drills. Dubbed Zapad, which means “west” in Russian, the exercise has its roots in vast Soviet drills dating to the 1980s.

US and Japan stage war drills amid fears North Korea could launch new nuke test
American and Japanese warplanes flew side by side as they conducted military drills – just hours before Kim Jong-un is expected to order another nuke test. The fighters jets flew from the US military base in Guam in a show of force to war-mongering Kim. North Korea’s dictator is believed to be preparing a

missile test for as early as today – the 69th anniversary of his nation’s creation. Past missile tests have often coincided with significant national anniversaries. International pressure on Kim’s regime is now at boiling point after it fired a rocket over Japan before testing a hydrogen bomb last week. Now he is feared to be readying another rocket launch.

BOMBSHELL: Secret Message Ties Top Dem To Pakistani Spy Ring

Post  Admin on Sun 10 Sep 2017, 4:28 pm

BOMBSHELL: Secret Message Ties Top Dem To Pakistani Spy Ring
September 8, 2017 Mark Prvulovic
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/top-dem-to-pakistani-spy-ring/?utm_medium=push&utm_source=AP&utm_campaign=onesignal
Another development has emerged regarding the infamous Democrat IT scandal. A few months ago, it was reported that top IT staffers for the Democrat Party had been funneling millions of dollars to Pakistan through a series of bizarre and fraudulent schemes. However, a new revelation has come out that proves the connection between the two.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), is one Democrat with the closest connections to the staffers. Ever since a laptop was seized by the FBI, she has been claiming that it wasn’t hers. However, she has remained suspiciously desperate to get it back, even going so far as to threaten a police chief. Now we know why. With information that could implicate her and prove that she obstructed justice – it’s obvious now that she didn’t just hire a bad employee, The Gateway Pundit reports.

The Awan brothers, working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Democrat Party at large, built up an IT ring which they not only used to funnel away millions of dollars, but also had access to sensitive emails and computer data.

They were eventually fired once suspicions began to arise concerning the fact they accessed particular computer networks without permission. In other words, they hacked them. However, Schultz continued to pay Awan months after he was fired. It turned out that the IT staffer still had some sensitive information on her that could implicate the Democrat.

Now it appears that Awan might have sold Schultz out. Capitol Police have just confirmed that Schultz’s laptop was found in a phone booth at 3 am. Interestingly, there was a note to the US attorney attached from Awan himself.

Besides the laptop, there was a Pakistani ID card, copies of Awan’s driver’s license and congressional ID badge, as well as a letter to the US attorney. Despite the fact that the Florida Democrat denied owning the computer, saying that it was Awan’s and not hers, the laptop had the username “RepDWS.” So, in reality, the laptop is most likely hers.

For those who might have forgotten, Schultz was so desperate to prevent any of her computers from falling into the hands of the police that she was willing to threaten a police chief if he didn’t give it back to her.

This is quickly shaping up to be the biggest real news story of 2017. With one famous conservative voice going so far as to describe this affair as, “everything that the Democrats and media spent months..trying to prove [with] the Russia investigation.”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s relationship with her Pakistani IT person is increasingly troubling. Is it time to launch an investigation?

Should the DOJ open an investigation into Wasserman-Schultz and her Pakistan connection?

Yes
No
Next
“We have computer interference…a powerful political figure attempting to interfere with a federal investigation. We have actual criminal elements; this guy was arrested trying to flee the country. We have interference from foreign politicians, given $100,000 by a prominent Iraqi politician,” said Mark Steyn in an interview.

He concluded by saying, “In other words, everything that they have been looking for in the Russia investigation and failed to find is actually staring them in the face.”

As this affair is shaping up, there’s no way for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to escape this predicament. With this laptop containing incriminating data, it’s over for this corrupt politician.

NEWSTrump Orders Military to Shoot Down North Korean Missiles
http://conservativefighters.com/news/trump-orders-military-shoot-north-korean-missiles/
President Donald Trump has given military orders for U.S. forces to shoot down and destroy any missile launched from North Korea and moving toward the continental United States, Hawaii, and Guam.

Sources close to the president’s national security team tell Newsmax the order was given to Pentagon brass in the wake of last month’s threat by North Korea to fire a ballistic missile aimed at Guam, a U.S. territory.

“The threat provoked the president,” one source familiar with the decision told Newsmax.

Last Sunday, North Korea detonated a thermonuclear weapon. The communist regime claims they can fit the new device on advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles, known as ICBMs.


This week, South Korean intelligence sources said the North was moving an ICBM in an apparent preparation for another test launch over the northern Pacific and possibly Japan.

The president also is said to be considering a new “shoot down” order for any North Korean missile launched and moving toward Japan or South Korea, another national security source told Newsmax.

“This is a clear exercise of self-defense, and there’s no question we should do it,” former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Newsmax.

Bolton said U.S. allies South Korea and Japan “are in jeopardy” and said the United States must take steps to protect them under treaty obligations.

The presidential order came after a flurry of recent provocations from Pyongyang.

In August, President Trump ominously warned the North Koreans that continued threats “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

Soon after, North Korea answered Trump’s warning by threatening a ballistic missile strike off the territory of Guam.

The president quickly responded, saying any attack against the U.S. would be met with a fierce response.

“Things will happen to them like they never thought possible,” the president said, adding U.S. forces were “locked and loaded.”

The situation appeared to be de-escalating when North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un announced he had met with his military commanders and they would not fire the missile at Guam.

In a threatening move Aug. 29, North Korea launched from their capital Pyongyang what they said was an “ultramodern rocket system” — an intermediate range missile. The missile flew over Japanese territory and landed in the Pacific.

“There is general consensus in the White House and the Pentagon that North Korea is quite close to the ‘red zone’ and that the U.S. must act soon or lose the upper hand,” one official told Newsmax.

Bolton, who has advised the president informally on security matters, said the U.S. is being “driven in the direction of a preemptive strike because North Korea won’t back down.”

“We are close to the finish line,” Bolton said, referring to Pyongyang’s recent missile and nuclear developments. “It highlights how little time we have here.”

Just days after North Korea’s nuclear test detonation, Han Tae Song, the North Korean ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, told a disarmament conference the U.S. could expect more “more gift packages.”

If the U.S. military does act on President Trump’s orders to shoot down a missile, this would be achieved through different U.S. anti-ballistic programs under the aegis of the Missile Defense Agency.

Among these programs are the 26-year-old Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, (THAAD), whose “hit to kill” interceptors are designed to shoot down an incoming missile through kinetic energy that explodes the missile on impact.

“It’s called stopping a bullet with a bullet,” one veteran intelligence expert told Newsmax.

The technology appears to be working.

In late August, a day after the North Korea missile flew over Japan, the U.S. Missile Agency conducted a test that successfully struck down a ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii.

The White House press office and the Pentagon declined to comment on this report.

At Thursday’s White House press conference held with the Emir of Kuwait, the president said while “military action would certainly be an option” in dealing with North Korea, he added “nothing’s inevitable.”

“I would prefer not going the route of the military,” he said.

ALERT: Trump Issues Massive N. Korea Order to Military
September 8, 2017 Ben Baker
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/trump-issues-n-korea-order-to-military/?utm_medium=push&utm_source=AP&utm_campaign=onesignal
With North Korea firing missiles over Japan, testing a hydrogen bomb and retracting threats to fire a missile at Guam, it’s apparent things are beyond tense.

After Kim Jong-un threatened to fire a missile at Guam, President Trump issued a clear order, according to Newsmax. Trump has ordered the US military to shoot down any missile launched by North Korea that is heading toward the US or its territories.

After North Korea fired its missile over Japan, President Trump was said to be considering extending the order to shoot any missile launched from North Korea, though no decision has been reported yet.

John Bolton, the former US Ambassador to the UN, says the order to shoot down all incoming missiles is a no brainer. “This is a clear exercise of self-defense, and there’s no question we should do it.”

Some have wondered why Japan didn’t issue a similar order to its military after North Korea fired a missile over Japanese territory. According to The Independent, there are actually a number of benefits, albeit risky ones, for a country to allow the missiles to be fired around them.

One potential downfall to shooting a missile out of the sky is that the defense systems might miss, according to Douglas H. Pal, former National Security Council member to President Bush and current Vice President of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace.

This would, no doubt, boost North Korea’s confidence to launch additional missiles or even attack. “We’ve been working on this technology for 30 years, and it’s still not ironclad. If we shoot and miss, it would hand Kim Jong-un an incalculable propaganda victory,” Pal said.

Another benefit, Pal pointed out, is the data collected from both the launch, flight, and the wreckage of the missile. “These tests are for North Korea to experiment with their capabilities but, less obviously, they help us learn about those capabilities,” Pal said. “From telemetry data to the wreckage we can recover, there’s a huge amount of information in every launch- not least the clues to their strategy that can be discerned from their decisions.”

The final reason would be that shooting down a test missile may be perceived as an act of war by Kim Jong-un, who may use the act as a justification to actually fire his missiles with the intent of striking at his enemies.

Despite these benefits, however, President Trump’s standing order to shoot down any missile approaching the US is still a wise one. According to The Atlantic, a serious threat from test missiles is that they can fail, causing massive damage.

Michael Auslin, a Williams-Griffis Fellow in Contemporary Asia at the Hoover Institution, argues this point: “If North Korea is reckless enough to launch these over populated areas, and then the missile breaks up, what happens of course if it falls on a populated area and causes casualties? At some point, there could be an accident or a mistake, and you’re plunged into a crisis.”

This is a legitimate concern considering the number of failed missile tests by North Korea that have failed to hit their designated targets or explode too soon.

There’s also the obvious risk that the launch may not be a test. Precious time that could be used to destroy the missile might be wasted determining if the trajectory of the incoming missile is an attack, test, or miscalculation on North Korea’s part.

A missile test launch towards the US could very easily spark the powder keg of war and our military could attack North Korea preemptively. According to Bolton, North Korea’s refusal to back down to sanctions and threats is causing the US to seriously consider a preemptive strike already.

Referencing the hydrogen bomb test and Japan launch Bolton said, “We are close to the finish line. It highlights how little time we have here.”

Though shooting down an incoming test missile may be what starts a war, having a standing order to shoot down any missiles that may pose a threat avoids any accidents or miscalculations from occurring that could result in loss of life. It’s also important to remember that if a war occurs because of the US shooting down a test launch, it started because the US was acting in self-defense against a nation growing increasingly hostile and trying to provoke a response.

US deploys hundreds of troops amid fears of Kim missile test tomorrow
North Korea’s threats to launch yet another missile has been met with the deployment of hundreds of American troops to East Asia. North Korea is feared to be plotting a provocative missile launch or even another nuclear test tomorrow as the country marks the anniversary of its founding with a huge celebration. Experts believe despot Kim Jong-un could be preparing to celebrate the national holiday in
explosive style, setting alarm bells ringing in Seoul, Washington and Tokyo. Now 600 Alaska-based troops have been flown to Japan to take part in drills and boost the number of US soldiers in the region in case the nuclear tension erupts into all-out war. They will carry out Orient Shield military drills with Japanese troops, with Black Hawk helicopters also making the trip for the exercises.

US deploys hundreds of troops amid fears of Kim missile test tomorrow
North Korea’s threats to launch yet another missile has been met with the deployment of hundreds of American troops to East Asia. North Korea is feared to be plotting a provocative missile launch or even another nuclear test tomorrow as the country marks the anniversary of its founding with a huge celebration. Experts believe despot Kim Jong-un could be preparing to celebrate the national holiday in

explosive style, setting alarm bells ringing in Seoul, Washington and Tokyo. Now 600 Alaska-based troops have been flown to Japan to take part in drills and boost the number of US soldiers in the region in case the nuclear tension erupts into all-out war. They will carry out Orient Shield military drills with Japanese troops, with Black Hawk helicopters also making the trip for the exercises.

North Korea Pursuing EMP Bomb
Sep 7, 2017 | 1 |
North Korea Pursuing EMP Bomb
North Korea for the first time this week revealed plans for using its nuclear arms for space-based electronics-disrupting EMP attacks, in addition to direct warhead ground blasts. The official communist party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, published a report Monday on “the EMP might of nuclear weapons,” outlining an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack produced by detonating a nuclear warhead in space.
“In general, the strong electromagnetic pulse generated from nuclear bomb explosions between 30 kilometers and 100 kilometers [18.6 miles and 62 miles] above the ground can severely impair electronic devices, electric machines, and electromagnetic grids, or destroy electric cables and safety devices,” said the article authored by Kim Songwon, dean of Kim Chaek University of Technology in Pyongyang.

Nuke-sniffer, ballistic recon aircraft deploy to Okinawa amid rising tensions with N. Korea
Air Force aircraft that detect radioactive fallout and track ballistic missiles are operating on Okinawa in the wake of North Korea’s sixth nuclear test and ahead of an anticipated intercontinental ballistic missile launch. A WC-135 Constant Phoenix — commonly referred to as a nuke-sniffer — arrived at Kadena Air Base Sept. 5, said Satoru Kuba, an Okinawan who monitors military aircraft. The Constant Phoenix,
which specializes in identifying radioactive debris after the detonation of a nuclear device, departed the next day with a tanker aircraft, Kuba said, and has been parked at Kadena ever since returning. North Korea tested its sixth and most powerful nuclear weapon on Sept. 3. The test was conducted on the heels of two groundbreaking ICBM launches in July that pushed the country closer to its stated goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the U.S. mainland.

Chinese military practices for ‘surprise attack’ over sea near Korea
China’s air force has carried out exercises near the Korean peninsula, practicing to defend against a “surprise attack” coming over the sea, Chinese state media reported. An anti-aircraft defense battalion carried out the exercises early on Tuesday, near the Bohai Sea, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea that
separates China from the peninsula, an official military website www.81.cn reported. Troops traveled to the site from central China before immediately beginning drills to fend off the “surprise attack” simulating real battle, it said. “The troops rapid response capabilities and actual combat levels have effectively been tested,” it said.

Mattis Warns “US will launch massive military response to North Korea threats”
The United States will launch a “massive military response” to threats from North Korea, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Sunday. He spoke after President Donald Trump met with his national security advisers following a test of what Pyongyang said was a hydrogen bomb able to fit atop a missile. “Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive
military response, a response both effective and overwhelming,” Mattis said. He added: “Kim Jong-Un should take heed of the United Nations Security Council’s unified voice. All members unanimously agreed on the threat North Korea poses and remain unanimous in their commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Donald Trump REFUSES to rule out attack on North Korea as Kim Jong-un warns US it ‘would not escape from the greatest disaster’ following nuke test
Donald Trump has refused to rule out an attack on North Korea as Kim Jong-un warned the US “would not escape from the greatest disaster” after the rogue nation detonated its sixth nuclear bomb. The test triggered a 6.3-magnitude artificial quake – ten times larger than any of North Korea’s previous attempts. The test was seen as a direct challenge to Trump, who has vowed to stop North Korea developing nuclear
weapons that could threaten the United States. State media has now issued a “severe warning” to America. The Korean Central News Agency said: “If the US imperialists awkwardly provoke the DPRK, they would not be able to escape from the greatest disaster.” When questioned if he would attack North Korea, Trump said: “We’ll see”.

ALERT: Trump Sends Massive “War” Message
September 5, 2017 Ben Baker
The US and its allies aren’t pulling any punches after North Korea’s recent test of an alleged hydrogen bomb.

In addition to beefing up US self-defense measures and preparing military action, Trump has also been enhancing South Korea’s defensive capabilities. Yesterday, Trump agreed to sell “many billions of dollars worth of military weapons and equipment” to South Korea, according to Newsmax.

On Sunday, North Korea claimed it successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that would be suitable for use with long range missiles. The move caused immediate concern, leading the US and its allies to begin making preparations for the worst.

As part of the military side of preparations, the US has agreed to sell a massive number of weapons and equipment to South Korea and Japan, according to Trump’s tweet early this morning. “I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States.
In addition to weapons and equipment, South Korea will also be permitted to lift their weight restriction on warheads. Lifting the weight restriction on warheads would allow South Korea to fit their missiles with larger, heavier warheads that could do greater damage when launched. The US and South Korea hope this alone will be an effective deterrent to an attack from North Korea.
There have also been talks between South Korea and the US about deploying aircraft carriers and strategic bombers near the Korean peninsula in an effort to ward off any missiles launched by North Korea.
In addition to military preparations, the US has also sought to utilize economic warfare as a means of hindering North Korea’s abilities, according to NBC News. In a tweet sent out Sunday following the hydrogen bomb test, Trump threatened to cut trade with North Korean allies, stating that, “The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.”
South Korean President Moon Jae-In believes restricting North Korean’s income generators is key to limiting its military potential. In a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he stated the UN needs to “seriously consider to fundamentally block North Korea’s foreign currency sources by cutting off crude oil supplies and banning its overseas labor.”

President Jae-In has also lifted previous restrictions on the deployment of THAAD batteries in the country. These US missile defense systems would enable South Korea to target and destroy missiles from North Korea in mid-air, all without detonating their nuclear payloads.

President Trump agrees to sell “many billions of dollars worth of military weapons and equipment” to South Korea.Do you approve of this move?

Do you approve of Trump's plan to sell more weapons to South Korea?

Yes
No
Next
Though many of these preparations and measures look promising, some feel it simply won’t be enough — North Korea has ignored similar threats in the past.

Hans Kristensen, Director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists believes military and economic pressures just aren’t enough to stop North Korea. “Right now, everything North Korea does appears to have to be bigger and scarier. The signal they’re sending is the same as always: we don’t care what you say, we can do this and will continue to do so until you stop threatening us. And they seem to have the resources needed to do so despite sanctions,” he said.
Hopefully, the steps we’re taking will mitigate the North Korean threat, and can prevent potential attacks from their hostile dictator.

Emanuel’s Plan To Make Chicago A “Trump-Free Zone” Fails Immediately
Mayor Rahm Emanuel also known as Obama’s first confidante, attacked Trump again, but this time it was hilarious. He is well known for his inability to accomplish anything. And now he made a promise to his people that will never be able to keep, he promised to make Chicago a “Trump-free Zone.”

When Trump announced he will end DACA, Democrats almost immediately started attacking him and causing chaos over the media especially the left politicians. One of them was Rahm Emanuel who gathered students at Southwest Side high school Tuesday and started telling them not to be scared that Trump had no place in Chicago.

“To all the Dreamers that are here in this room, and in the city of Chicago, you are welcomed in the city of Chicago,” Emanuel said. “This is your home and you have nothing to worry about.”

Then he addressed President Trump directly: “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about.”


Solorio Academy High School is a school where more than half of the students are illegals, and having that in mind Emanuel thought he was playing his cards right, but things backfired quickly.

Many conservatives were quick to point out how ridiculous was his attempt to refuse cooperation with the federal government. They took it on Twitter with saying, “Another liberal making false promises he has no authority to keep?” and “Emanuel declares Chicago is now a Trump free zone but illegal aliens, illegal guns, murders and illegal drugs welcome,”

It’s surprising that a mayor of such big city will make that promise since there is no law allowing him to do so. Liberals and illegals shouldn’t start celebrating right now since Emanuel gave them an empty promise. President Trump can visit Chicago whenever he wants for how long he wants. Emanuel just proved that he is full of empty promises as always.

If these uninformed illegal voters and many liberals continue to vote for idiots like Emanuel, Republicans will win every single time.

North Korea claims to have hydrogen bomb for long-range missile

North Korea claims to have hydrogen bomb for long-range missile
North Korea claimed Sunday that it had developed a hydrogen bomb to use with a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The claim by North Korea’s state media arm was first reported by South Korea’s Yonhap News. The Korean Central News Agency said that that dictator Kim Jong-un inspected “an H-bomb to be loaded into [a] new
ICBM” during a visit to the North’s Nuclear Weapons Institute. Photos accompanied the statement showed the purported hydrogen bomb being developed in a lab. There was no immediate comment from the Pentagon or other U.S. officials. However, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told Congress in March that North Korea had developed the ability to put a nuclear warhead on a missile.

RUMORS OF WAR: Putin warns North Korea situation on verge of ‘large-scale conflict’…
Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday that the tense standoff between North Korea and the United States was on the verge of large-scale conflict and said it was a mistake to try to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear missile program. Putin, who is due to attend a summit of the BRICS nations in China next week, wrote in an article published
on the Kremlin’s web site ahead of his trip that he favoured negotiations with North Korea instead. “It is essential to resolve the region’s problems through direct dialogue involving all sides without advancing any preconditions (for such talks),” Putin wrote. “Provocations, pressure, and bellicose and offensive rhetoric is the road to nowhere.”

Putin warns N. Korea situation on verge of 'large-scale conflict'
by Reuters
Friday, 1 September 2017 07:58 GMT
MOSCOW, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday that the tense standoff between North Korea and the United States was on the verge of large-scale conflict and said it was a mistake to try to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear missile programme.

Putin, who is due to attend a summit of the BRICS nations in China next week, wrote in an article published on the Kremlin's web site ahead of his trip that he favoured negotiations with North Korea instead.

"It is essential to resolve the region's problems through direct dialogue involving all sides without advancing any preconditions (for such talks)," Putin wrote.

"Provocations, pressure, and bellicose and offensive rhetoric is the road to nowhere."

The situation on the Korean Peninsula had deteriorated so much that it was now "balanced on the verge of a large-scale conflict," said the Russian leader.

North Korea has been working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States and has recently threatened to land missiles near the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

On Monday, Pyongyang, which sees joint war games between the United States and South Korea as preparations for invasion, raised the stakes in its stand-off with the United States and its allies by firing an intermediate-range missile over Japan.

"In Russia's opinion the calculation that it is possible to halt North Korea's nuclear missile programmes exclusively by putting pressure on Pyongyang is erroneous and futile," Putin wrote.

A road map formulated by Moscow and Beijing, which would involve North Korea stopping work on its missile programme in exchange for the United States and South Korea halting large-scale war games, was a way to gradually reduce tensions, wrote Putin.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea vows to ‘sharpen its nuclear sword’ in WW3 threat to America
AUGUST 27, 2017
North Korea has sparked fears of all-out war with the USA after threatening to “sharpen its nuclear sword” as tensions continue to escalate. North Korea has issued yet another saber-rattling statement to its Western enemies, warning the US it would show “no mercy” in any conflict. The statement, issued by a Pyongyang-based news agency which acts as a
mouthpiece for despot Kim Jong-un, said the hermit state did not fear to start World War 3. It comes amid ever-rising tensions on the Korean peninsula as Kim and US president Donald Trump both become increasingly determined not to blink first. The propaganda agency even went so far as to say Kim was accelerating the country’s nuclear missile program in order to reduce the threat of nuclear war.

Venice Mayor Warns ‘We Will Shoot’ Anyone Who Shouts ‘Allahu Akbar,’
AUGUST 26, 2017
Cops in Venice have been told to shoot potential terrorists on sight. The Italian city’s mayor has ordered them to target anyone shouting “Allahu Akbar”, Arabic for God is Greater. Luigi Brugnaro, mayor of the tourist hot spot of Venice, revealed the order at a summer think tank and was applauded by delegates. He said: “Anyone who shouts Allahu Akbar in
St Mark’s Square can expect to be gunned down by snipers within four paces. “We need to increase our security when it cto terrorism. We had four would be terrorists arrested in Venice a few months ago who wanted to blow up the Rialto bridge. “They said they wanted to go and meet Allah so we will send them straight to Allah without having to throw them off the bridge, we will just shoot them.”

North Korea fires three ballistic missiles into East Sea
AUGUST 26, 2017
North Korea launched at least three ballistic missiles into the East Sea on Saturday morning, according to South Korean and U.s. militaries. The North fired “several unidentified projectiles” from the vicinity Gitdaeryong in Gangwon Province starting at around 6:49 a.m., said the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). Some of those flew more than 250 kilometers in the northeastern direction, it added. The U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) also said, “Initial assessment indicates three short-
range ballistic missile launches.” “The first and third missiles at 11:49 a.m. (Hawaii time) and 12:19 p.m. failed in flight,” the PACOM’s spokesman Cdr. David Benham said in an emailed statement. “The second missile launch at 12:07 p.m. appears to have blown up almost immediately.” The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the three ballistic missile launches from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America, he added.

North Korea is Now Using School Teachers, Children to Hunt Christians
AUGUST 22, 2017
It’s no secret that North Korea is a horrific place for Christians, with the reclusive government in Pyongyang routinely persecuting and murdering Bible-believers. But despite the intense restrictions and risks, Fox News recently reported that an estimated 9 million North Koreans — 36 percent of the population — still practice Christianity.And that’s pretty telling, considering that Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, a group that monitors persecution, told the outlet
that Christians caught practicing their faith “are arrested, horrendously tortured, imprisoned and [sometimes] immediately put to death.” Being a Christian in North Korea is certainly dangerous, with the regime going to great lengths to encourage — and even trick — people into telling on their fellow citizens if and when they learn that someone is practicing the Christian faith.

North Korea’s latest propaganda depicts Trump in cemetery
AUGUST 22, 2017
President Trump is pictured looking out over a Guam graveyard cluttered with crosses in a photoshopped image from the newest propaganda film — and grim warning — from North Korea. The regime followed the video with a statement posted through its KCNA news agency, saying Trump “spouted rubbish” and frequently tweeted about “weird articles of his ego-
driven thoughts” and attacking South Korea’s “puppy-like” Defense Minister Song Young-moo for “pinning hope on that
mad guy.” But the picture of a graveyard believed to be in Guam may be the most rattling in the video, given dictator Kim Jong Un’s repeated threats to strike the U.S. territory with a missile. The video also features Vice President Pence engulfed in flames. “Trump spouted rubbish that if a war breaks out, it would be on the Korean Peninsula, and if thousands of people die, they would be only Koreans and Americans may sleep a sound sleep,” the KCNA statement said.

War Games Begin as U.S., South Korea Brace for North’s Fury
AUGUST 21, 2017
A new cycle of escalation on the Korean Peninsula looks set to begin this week when the U.S. and South Korea kick off annual military exercises that have a history of enraging Pyongyang. The long-planned drills follow weeks of belligerent rhetoric between the U.S. and North Korea that stoked fears of a catastrophic outcome. In what many saw as a slight easing of tensions last week, dictator Kim Jong Un said he would hold off for now before deciding whether to carry out a
threat, announced days earlier, to fire missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. The 10-day drills, known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian, will test whether North Korea’s apparent easing of its immediate threat to Guam proves durable—or if the de-escalation was really a backdown at all. U.S. officials have long said the exercises are intended to ensure readiness for a possible North Korean attack. Pyongyang, though, has characterized them as preparation for an invasion.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea warns of ‘merciless strike’ ahead of US-S.Korea drills…
AUGUST 20, 2017
North Korea warned Sunday that the upcoming US-South Korea military exercises are “reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war.” Pyongyang also declared that its army can target the United States anytime, and neither Guam, Hawaii nor the US mainland can “dodge the merciless strike.” The messages in Rodong
Sinmun, the official government newspaper, come a day before the US starts the Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercises with South Korea. Tensions between the US and North Korea have grown in recent weeks. Just last week, Pyongyang said it had finalized a plan to fire four missiles toward the US territory of Guam. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un would assess the US’ next move before giving launch orders.

US and S.Korea War Games Begin on Day of Eclipse as Pyongyang warns of ‘Catastrophe’…
AUGUST 18, 2017
Are tensions cooling in the Korean Peninsula? The United States and South Korea will find out Monday, when the two allies are scheduled to start joint military exercises that are known to anger North Korea, sometimes triggering a show of force. This year’s war games come at a particularly delicate moment. There have been exchanges of war rhetoric between
President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has further complicated the situation, by stating in an interview there’s “no military option” in North Korea while floating a possible deal with Pyongyang that would leave Seoul hanging. Amid all this back and forth, the U.S. and South Korean military will simulate warfare with North Korea from Aug. 21 to 31, well aware that North Korea could respond with another missile test.

Pentagon Sources Confirm North Korea Nearly Has an H-Bomb
AUGUST 17, 2017
Rumors of war with North Korea are subsiding for now, but another serious threat is still growing. CBN News has learned North Korea could be close to developing an even more powerful weapon than the nukes it has already built. For now, dictator Kim Jong Un has taken a step back from the brink of war, after vowing revenge against the United States over
U.N. sanctions against his country. But the rogue regime may just be buying more time. Pentagon sources confirm North Korea is anywhere from six to 18 months away from developing a hydrogen bomb. “It isn’t ludicrous to think that the North Koreans, even though their economy is one-third the size of Ethiopia, can do this,” said Harry Kazianis who heads up the defense studies at The Center for National Interest.

North Korea Video Portrays US Capitol Building being obliterated by red missiles
AUGUST 17, 2017
North Korea’s latest propaganda posters show the country bombing the United States as their ‘answer’ to the latest UN sanctions against the country. The illustrations see Pyongyang warheads destroying the Capitol Building in Washington DC, and dozens of bombs falling over a burning map of the U.S. Proclaiming that the ‘entire region of the state [U.S.] is now within range of our missiles!’, the posters is the latest escalation in threats of nuclear war by North Korea. The three
drawings were released by Pyongyang mouthpiece Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Thursday. One shows warheads underneath a North Korean flag, all pointed at the Capitol, and captioned: ‘Our answer!’. Another has a cartoon tank with a bomb mounted on top, which reads: ‘No one can stop our way!’ The third claims that the U.S. is now within range of the country’s nuclear missiles, with dozens of bombs being launched at the United States on fire on a map.

the grave, it is the Americans’ demand to visit our military centers,” lieutenant commander of the IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, according to a report by the Iranian Fars news agency.

There’s no “imminent” threat of a nuclear war between the US and North Korea, according to CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who explained that Donald Trump’s threats against Pyongyang describe only a possible response for “certain actions.” “There’s nothing imminent today,” Pompeo told Fox News on Sunday. “But make no mistake about it, the continuation,
the increased chance that there will be a nuclear missile in Denver is a very serious threat and the investigation is going to treat it as such.” “What I’m talking about is I’ve heard folks talking about being on the cusp of a nuclear war,” he added. “No intelligence that would indicate that we’re in that place today.” Rather than an escalation to a nuclear war, Pompeo argued that Trump’s heated rhetoric towards Pyongyang was to send a message that its continued pursuit of a nuclear arsenal and
ballistic missile technology would not be tolerated.

Iran ‘to deploy navy for electronic Warfare drills’ amid rising tensions with the US
AUGUST 16, 2017
Iran plans to deploy naval forces as the country stages a massive series of battle games focusing on electronic warfare, a military chief declared. Iranian Naval Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced the plans as the Islamic Republic revealed it may abandon its nuclear agreement with world powers “within hours” if more new sanctions are imposed amid escalating tensions with the US. The commander added a specialized warfare drill would be held in the
southeast of the country in the next few days. A United Nations resolution calls for Iran not to undertake activity related to ballistic missiles designed to have a nuclear warhead. Electronic warfare, also known as EW, represents the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum—signals such as radio, infrared or radar to sense, protect, and communicate. At the same time, it can be used to deny adversaries the ability to either disrupt or use these signals.

Solar Eclipse on Eve of Elul Signals Downfall of North Korea, Says Century-Old Jewish Prophecy
AUGUST 16, 2017
An esoteric prophecy written over a century ago described the solar eclipse that will traverse the entire United States next week and predicted, in shocking detail, what the astronomical event portends for the outcome of the current North Korean-US conflict. The total solar eclipse’s timing is meaningful according to the Jewish calendar. Incredibly, it comes precisely at the beginning of a Hebrew month – Elul – singled out in a Jewish source as having significance for the specific political situation the US is facing today with Eastern aggressors.
“The prophecy states that when a solar eclipse occurs exactly as it will next week, in the beginning of the month of Elul, kings of the East will suffer great loss,” Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, revealed of the century-old text Yalkut Moshe (“Collection of Moses”). Just a few hours after the path of darkness departs the coast of South Carolina and the sun sets, the Hebrew month of Elul begins, ushering in a 40-day period of repentance corresponding to the period Moses spent on Mount Sinai repenting for the Jewish People.

Al Qaeda Publishes Blueprint for Attacks on Key U.S. Transportation Systems…
AUGUST 15, 2017
The al Qaeda terror group’s chief bomb maker has published a blueprint for new attacks on U.S. transportation systems, including planes, trains, and boats, which the terror group views as “prime targets,” according to a copy of a lengthy manifesto that provides a guide for would-be terrorists to launch attacks. Ibrahim al-Asiri, a top al Qaeda leader known as the terror group’s chief bomb maker, detailed the extremist organization’s plans to target U.S. passenger and shipping
transportation services, which the terror organization views as weak links ripe for attack. While al Qaeda’s operations have been weakened by years of U.S. attacks on its key locations and apparatus, it has increasingly relied on promulgating its radical ideology to so-called “lone wolfs” who are not officially affiliated with the group but who are capable of carrying out terror attacks without detection by American authorities.

Kim Jong Un will watch ‘stupid American behavior for a bit longer’
AUGUST 15, 2017
North Korea’s Kim Jong Un was briefed by one of his generals on the country’s plan to launch missiles toward Guam, according to South Korea’s largest news agency, but the combative leader appeared to put the heated rhetoric on pause, saying he would watch “stupid American behavior for a bit longer.” KCNA, the state news agency of North Korea, said in a
statement, “Dear supreme leader has spent a long time to review the plan to attack Guam by surrounding it and conferred with the leaders present,” according to a translation by the South Korean news agency Yonhap. On Monday Kim reportedly met with his Gen. Kim Rak Gyom, warning soldiers to stand ready to strike “at all times,” according to the Yonhap report.

RUMORS OF WAR: US Defense Sec Warns “If North Korea Fires Missiles at US, It’s Game On”!
AUGUST 15, 2017
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Monday that if North Korea follows through on its threats to fire a missile at the United States, “it’s game on.” Speaking to reporters, Mattis added that the U.S. military would “take out” any North Korean missile it detects is heading for American soil, including Guam, a U.S. territory. Mattis said the U.S. would detect a missile of that nature heading towards Guam “within moments.” Mattis added that if North Korea fires at the U.S., “it could
escalate into war very quickly… yes, that’s called war, if they shoot at us.”North Korea has warned it was considering a plan to launch four ballistic missiles to land in the sea just outside Guam. Asked how the U.S. would respond, Mattis initially declined to say. When pressed, he said that if U.S. radars and other detection and tracking systems determine that a missile was going to fall into the sea, short of Guam.

Kim Jong Un disappearance sparks concerns missile launch could be imminent
AUGUST 14, 2017
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has vanished from the public eye for two weeks, South Korean media reported, prompting fears that he may be preparing to mark Tuesday’s public holiday by firing a new rocket. The last time Kim went days without being seen was prior to the ICBM launch in late July, when he remained incognito for two weeks before making his grandiose public appearance. His public withdrawal comes as nuclear tensions mount between Washington
and Pyongyang, and on the heels of the leader’s threat to attack the U.S. island territory of Guam. On Tuesday, North Korea is set to commemorate the Korean Peninsula’s liberation from Japan at the end of World War II. Adding to the speculation of an imminent rocket-fire test, last week U.S.-based North Korea watchdog site 38 North released satellite imagery of a submarine base in the hermit country,

RUMORS OF WAR: DEFCON threat level increased over North Korea missile test fears
AUGUST 14, 2017
America’s nuclear warning system DEFCON has been upgraded as tensions between the US and North Korea reach a critical boiling point. Last week US President Donald Trump threatened the hermit state with “fire and fury” should it continue to test missiles and issue threats to the West. Now, the Defcon warning system, which has monitored and
assessed nuclear threats against the US for more than 33 years, has been upped from its lowest level to level four. A report said while there does not appear to be an “imminent nuclear threat”, there are events which are beginning to require close attention. The statement said: “Tensions between North Korea and the United States are reaching almost a fever pitch, with new threats coming out every day.

RUMORS OF WAR: US ready to use ‘full range of military capabilities’ against North Korea
AUGUST 15, 2017
The United States is ready to use the “full range” of its capabilities if provoked by North Korea, the country’s top military officer said, noting that Washington is still hoping for a “peaceful resolution” to the crisis. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made clear on Monday that Washington is ready “to use the full range of military capabilities to defend our allies and the US homeland,” according to US military spokesman Capt. Darryn James,
as cited by AP. Dunford previously stressed to reporters, however, that the US is “seeking a peaceful resolution to the crisis,” local media reported. The comments were made during Dunford’s visit to South Korea, where he is meeting with the country’s military and political officials, as well as local media. Dunford, who is also visiting Japan and China during his trip, earlier told reporters traveling with him that he is aiming to “sense what the temperature is in the region.”

Russia unveils new fleet of ‘invisible’ supersonic fighter jets
AUGUST 14, 2017
Russia has unveiled its new fleet of ‘invisible’ supersonic fighter jets, boasting that they are already the envy of air forces around the world. The £120million Sukhoi-57, which will have a top speed of 1,615 mph, is said to rival America’s F-22 and China’s Chengdu J-20, Kremlin officials say the fifth-generation stealth jet has been ‘christened like a baby after its
birth’ as Su-57 and will undergo another year of testing before it enters military service in 2019. The country’s air force chief Viktor Bondarev described the aircraft as a ‘wonderful machine’ and last month said: ‘Every country probably wants planes such as this, and we have them.’The plane was called ‘PAK FA’ and ‘T-50’ during its developmental stage. Russia says the Su-57 will use state-of-the-art stealth technology to make it hard to track on enemy radars.

Iran Begins Sending Warships To Atlantic…
AUGUST 14, 2017
Iran is preparing to send a flotilla of warships to the Atlantic Ocean following the announcement of a massive $500 million investment in war spending, according to Iranian leaders, who say the military moves are in response to recent efforts by the United States to impose a package of new economic sanctions on Tehran. The military investment and build up comes following weeks of tense interactions between Iran and the United States in regional waters, where Iranian
military ships have carried out a series of dangerous maneuvers near U.S. vessels. The interactions have roiled U.S. military leaders and prompted tough talk from the Trump administration, which is currently examining potential ways to leave the landmark nuclear deal. Iran’s increasingly hostile behavior also follows a little-noticed United Nations report disclosing that Iran has repeatedly violated international accords banning ballistic missile work.

US and South Korea to stage huge military exercise despite North Korea crisis
AUGUST 14, 2017
US and South Korean militaries will go ahead with massive sea, land and air exercises later this month, despite a spiraling situation in which North Korea has threatened to fire missiles towards a US Pacific territory. The annual joint exercises, named Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, have long been planned for 21-31 August, but now come at a time when both
Washington and Pyongyang are on heightened alert, raising the spectre of a mishap or overreaction. The timing is doubly concerning as it is within a timeframe in which Pyongyang says it will be ready to fire four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles toward the US-run island of Guam, an unusually specific threat against the US.

North Korea Backs Off Guam Missile-Attack Threat
AUGUST 15, 2017
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.” The report, published early Tuesday, could help dial back tensions that had spiraled last week
following an exchange of threats between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump.Mr. Trump warned Pyongyang last week that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded” and could engulf the North in “fire and fury,” while North Korea, through its state media, had threatened to fire four missiles in a bid to surround the U.S. territory of Guam in “enveloping fire.”

DEVELOPING: Satellite photos suggest North Korea preparing submarine missile test
AUGUST 13, 2017
Recent satellite photos suggest North Korea could be preparing for fresh submarine-based ballistic missile tests, an expert on its military said Friday. Joseph Bermudez, a specialist in North Korean defense and intelligence affairs, posted photographs on the authoritative 38 North blog of the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University which he said could show preparations for a test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM). “Recent commercial satellite imagery
reveals several developments suggesting that North Korea may be accelerating the development of the sea-based leg of its nuclear forces,” he said. Activity on a SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile submarine at the Mayang-do navy shipyard and submarine base, he said, suggests “that the North may be preparing for a new series of ‘at sea’ test launches, has undertaken modifications or upgrades to the submarine’s launch systems
