North Korea Nuclear Test Confirmed

September 3, 2017

According to AFP, North Korea has just carried out its sixth nuclear test. The United States Geographical survey recorded a 6.3 magnitude earthquake after the test.

As reported by presstv.com, due to test a second tremor which was felt by China, measured 4.6 magnitude just eight minutes after nuclear test.

DAILY JOURNAL:

South Korea has refuted a news report that there was a second earthquake near North Korea’s nuclear test site.

According to Daily Journal, North Korea’s state broadcaster says an important announcement is coming at 3 p.m. in Pyongyang. That would be 3:30 p.m. in Seoul and Tokyo, and 2:30 a.m. EDT

Defcon reports that North Korea’s recent test was estimated at 100 kilotons.

Looks like the second test was not a test, but a “collapse.”

According to NPR, North Korea is developing a “super explosive” hydrogen bomb that can fit on an intercontinental ballistic missile. 

ASSOCIATED PRESS:


Looks like Kim Jung Un watched as a H Bomb was loaded into an ICBM as reported by KCNA (via XINHUA, China’s Official News Agency).

RT is reporting that the North Korea’s Nuclear Weapons Institute has a “more developed nuke.”

“Our hydrogen fuel, which can be arbitrarily adjusted from tens to hundreds of kilotons depending on the target of the nuclear strike, not only exerts enormous destructive power,” but can also explode at a high altitude, producing a “super powerful EMP [electromagnetic pulse] against a vast region,” KCNA said in the Saturday statement.

Many websites have been warning about an EMP attack for awhile now, which would bring down our electric grid. This isn’t good! We are aware that our electric grid is our largest national vulnerability. I hope we are keeping our eyes on Iran at this time also!

Statement coming shortly as reported by CTBTO.

Announcement most likely coming to us: https://youtu.be/TqWpXnaT4H0, if you speak their language, that is:

Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzō Abe says he “will not tolerate” another nuclear test from Korea. Japan sends up sniffer planes to try to detect radiation, as reported by Anna Fifield who is a Tokyo Bureau Chief for the Washington Post.

As reported by Arirang News, Tokyo will coordinate measures with Seoul, Bejing, Washington, Moscow. North Korea’s “H Bomb” test was in provocation following the Trump/Abe phone conversation. Trump and Abe confirm trilateral cooperation with Seoul. North Korea’s test comes on the heels of the BRICS Summit

Arirang News also reports, UN most likely will call for harsher sanctions, mainly cutting off oil supply to Pyongyang.

As reported by RT, China strongly condemns the North Korean nuclear test, the foreign ministry said in a statement. “The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has once again conducted a nuclear test in spite of widespread opposition from the international community. The Chinese government resolutely opposes and strongly condemns it,” it said.

RT reports, on Friday Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that this type of behavior “could lead to regional conflict:”

“The situation on the Korean Peninsula, where tensions have grown recently, is balancing on the brink of a large-scale conflict. Russia believes that the policy of putting pressure on Pyongyang to stop its nuclear missile program is misguided and futile,” Putin said.

According to ksl.com, Chancellor Angela Merkel commented that North Jorean provocations have “reached a new dimension.” Merkel spoke with President Emmanuel Macron on the phone, both agree that North Korea has “reached a new dimension,” and are condemning the nuclear tests.

As reported by ksl.com, Macron’s office has said that Merkel and the Prime Minister of Italy, Paolo Gentiloni agree that there needs to be strong sanctions from the EU against North Korea. READ MORE >

President Trump is considering stopping trade with any country doing business with North Korea, among other options.

President Trump will be meeting with General Mattis and other military leaders to discuss North Korea.

Not sure what President Trump means when he says North Korea only understands one thing, sounds like he is getting considerably tired of their escalating threatening ways. 

The bomb that they tested was much stronger than the bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki!

Ambassador John Bolton believes North Korea is not quite there yet to be able to hit major cities in the USA. He stated to Fox News that North Korea could sell ballistic missiles and nuclear devices to Iran and terrorist groups around the world, who by the way has a lot of cash due to Obama’s nuclear deal.

It looks like to me that the US maybe considering taking out Kim Jung Un. North Korea has given us no other option, as stated by Ambassador Bolton: 

.@AmbJohnBolton: “The only diplomatic option left is to end the regime in N. Korea by effectively having the South take it over.” 

The President was asked by a Fox News Correspondent just moments ago; “will you attack North Korea?”

Dan Scavino, the President’s Director of Social Media, also Assistant to the President has a message from Secretary James Mattis:

“Any threat to the US or its territories including Guam or our allies will be met with a MASSIVE military response”

Clinton’s Problems Continue, Trump’s Problems Unfounded

Clinton’s Problems Continue, Trump’s Problems Unfounded

June 15, 2017


Seems like the mainstream media is still pushing their “obstruction of justice” claims against the President. This is much to do about nothing! This is all coming from the Clinton allies, in a last ditch effort to save their own hides.

The MSM still won’t tell you that Hillary Clinton is still under investigation, they throw you off with fake news about President Trump. The Hillary Clinton investigations are warranted, says Senator Dianne Feinstein. These new revelations came out in James Comey’s testimony on June 8, 2017.

These revelations are not actually new, as most Americans believed that both the FBI and DOJ were protecting Clinton. Now, Democrats are listening to calls from ranking Senators like Feinstein and Grassley.

Feinstein believes their just might of been downplaying of the investigation into Clinton during the 2016 election. Comey testified that AG Loretta Lynch told him to say it was a “matter,” instead of a criminal investigation into Clinton. Comey testified that Lynch’s request made him feel queasy. Now, Feinstein is getting queasy to learn what Lynch asked Comey to state, enough to ask the Judiciary Committee for an investigation as she stated on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think we need to know more about that, and there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”

Feinstein also said she didn’t know whether Trump’s statements to Comey on the Russia probe, as relayed by the former FBI director, constitute obstruction of justice.

Senator Chuck Grassley is asking the State Departments, Rex Tillerson to investigate Hillary Clinton’s alleged misuse of power during her tenure as Secretary Of State. He reiterated back in 2015 that it had nothing to do with politics, but it was a matter of national security, this has never changed! He’s right, it is a national security issue!

The “obstruction of justice,” claim for the President will definitely not stick, as it was not an order by the President, as such it absolutely could not be misconstrued as an order. Flynn was still under investigation after Trumps talk with Comey, as he is to this very day. What must be emphasized here, which the MSM refuses to say, Trump is not under investigation for Russian ties. 

Further evidence for unprovable obstruction of justice claims for the President, the letters that were released by AG Sessions, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proved Comey  was removed due to not upholding the rule of law, which could amount to obstruction of justice being drawn up against Comey. It is the President’s constitutional duty to make sure the rule of law is upheld and faithfully executed. 

As far as I am concerned a motive beyond faithfully executing the law which is not obstruction of justice, would be to hard to prove with evidence such as the letters. Another point to make since Comey’s firing, guess what? The Flynn investigation is still ongoing! There’s no obstruction of justice.

Hillary Clinton was obstructing justice by destroying cell phones, using bleachbit on emails…..This is clearly a double standard, one in which she finally will be brought to justice since Comey is no longer the Director of the FBI. 

By insiders or outsiders unknown at this time, leaking information that Mueller is investigating the President for obstruction of justice or the supposed Russian ties that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner had, it has been warned by Rosenstein that the leaks coordinated anonymously should be received with skepticism. In other words, don’t take it as fact. The Washington Post and CNN are known quite well for reporting, using anonymous sources. In my opinion this tactic to get a rumor started to thwart/hinder progression within the administrations duties to the American people. 

The firing of James Comey was because of the handling of the Clinton investigations. Feinstein and Grassley are the ones who are smart enough to figure it out after the Sessions and Comey testimonies.

This post comes from democraticunderground.com, posted by riversedge, 12 hours ago:

“Grassley is going after Hillary Clinton also in his probe to investigate Comey firing…….”

“Damn. I was happy when I found out Grassley committee was going to look into the Comey firing but did not know that part of the deal was to look AGAIN at the Hillary’s email witch hunt. Damn!!”

Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate Comey firing, Clinton email probe 

By Seung Min Kim 

06/14/2017 06:08 PM EDT 

“The Judiciary Committee has an obligation to fully investigate any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations,” Grassley wrote to his Democratic counterpart, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. “It is my view that fully investigating the facts, circumstances, and rationale for Mr. Comey’s removal will provide us the opportunity to do that on a cooperative, bipartisan basis.”

In the letter, Grassley also stressed that the committee is obligated to look into the Justice Department’s handling last year of the probe surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail use, citing Comey’s testimony last week that he was concerned DOJ “could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”

“There should be no improper interference with FBI investigations to favor any elected official or candidate of either party,” Grassley wrote to Feinstein. “The Committee has an obligation to pursue all evidence of such misconduct.” 
Grassley and Feinstein met late Tuesday to discuss the Russia matter following testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to a Grassley spokesman. The Judiciary Committee has oversight of the Justice Department and the FBI.

Grassley stressed that the committee is obligated to look into the Justice Department’s handling last year of the probe surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail use.

After this investigation is completed, we will finally have an end to the Trump allegations of any obstruction of justice. But, Hillary will still be under investigation, the truth will come out.
