North Korea Conducts Largest Nuclear Test Ever, Possibly Hydrogen, Trump & Mattis Address The Nation & Warn Fat Boy

It’s bad, folks.

Published

on

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake was detected in North Korea and authorities have determined that it was caused by a nuclear test. The magnitude of the earthquake caused by the explosion is greater than from any of the previous tests, leading officials to believe it may have been a hydrogen bomb test.

Kim Jong-un was recently shown inspecting a warhead that North Korean state run news depicted as being a hydrogen bomb.

This is the 6th nuclear test the regime has conducted.

Via Daily Caller:

Seismic activity in North Korea suggests the country just conducted its sixth nuclear test.

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake, according to both the U.S. Geological Survey and the China Earthquake Administration, was detected in North Korea Sunday, just hours after the North revealed what it claimed is a thermonuclear device, specifically a hydrogen bomb.

USGS confirmed that this was a surface-level event, and the South Korean military has determined that this was an artificial earthquake, indicating a nuclear test. The Japanese foreign ministry has confirmed that North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test at around noon on Sunday, September 3.

The fifth nuclear test, which the North Koreans conducted in September of last year, produced seismic data resembling a 5.3 magnitude earthquake. The nuclear device tested at that time had an alarming explosive yield of roughly 10 to 30 kilotons. Assuming North Korea just conducted another nuclear test, the explosive yield is almost certainly much higher than the last.

To generate seismic data resembling a 6.3 magnitude earthquake, North Korea would need to test a substantial staged thermonuclear bomb, according to renowned arms expert Jeffrey Lewis.

The testing of a thermonuclear device would be a significant step forward for North Korea, which is in the process of developing an effective nuclear deterrent against the U.S. and its allies. The North has already developed an intercontinental ballistic missile that can range the vast majority of the continental U.S., and it is clear that North Korea has a nuclear warhead for this missile and the others in its arsenal.

If North Korea tested the device revealed earlier, the North Korean nuclear crisis is about to get significantly more complicated.

And via BBC:

A large earth tremor detected in North Korea was the country’s sixth nuclear test, Japan’s foreign minister says.

“The government confirms that North Korea conducted a nuclear test after examining information from the weather agency and other information,” Taro Kono told reporters.

US seismologists had said the 6.3 magnitude quake in the north-east of the country was a “possible explosion.”

It was in the area where the North has conducted previous nuclear tests.

The tremor came hours after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was pictured with what state media said was a new type of hydrogen bomb.

State media said the device could be loaded on to a ballistic missile. Neither claim could be independently verified.

South Korea officials said the quake took place in Kilju County, where the North’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site is situated.

Soon after, South Korean President Moon Jae-in convened an emergency meeting of his national security council.

China’s Earthquake Administration described the tremor as a “suspected explosion”. It said it had detected a second tremor just after the first, of 4.6 magnitude, which it termed “a collapse.”

Initial reports from the US Geological Survey put the tremor at 5.6 magnitude with a depth of 10km (six miles) but this was later upgraded to 6.3 magnitude at 0km. This would make it the North’s most powerful nuclear test to date.

North Korea carried out its last nuclear test in September 2016. It has defied UN sanctions and international pressure to develop nuclear weapons and to test missiles which could potentially reach the mainland US.

Bruce Bennett, a defence analyst at public policy group the Rand Corporation told the BBC that the size of the tremor was significant.

“If it really does prove out to be 6.3, that’s a very big weapon, much bigger,” he said.

“It’s still not a true hydrogen bomb but it’s certainly much closer to that than anything they have ever done before.”

He said China would also be concerned about the size of the suspected blast.

“Those Chinese people across the border from that area, they were undoubtedly shaken terribly,” he said.

‘Great destructive power’

A series of recent missile tests has caused growing international unease.

In a report on Sunday, the North’s state news agency KCNA said Kim Jong-un had visited scientists at the nuclear weapons institute and “guided the work for nuclear weaponisation.”

“The institute recently succeeded in making a more developed nuke,” the report said, adding: “He (Kim Jong-un) watched an H-bomb to be loaded into a new ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile).”

The report carried pictures of the leader inspecting the device. It described the weapon as “a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes.”

International experts say the North has made advances in its nuclear weapons capabilities but it is unclear if it has successfully miniaturised a nuclear weapon it can load on to a missile.

China’s Global Television Network announced that North Korea has claimed that the test was indeed a hydrogen bomb.

China’s official Xinhua News is also reporting that it was, in fact, a test of a hydrogen bomb, and that it will be carried by an “intercontinental ballistic missile.”

The United States DefCon warning system sent out the following messages on Twitter:

Anna Fifield, WAPO’s Tokyo bureau chief Tweeted:

“Japan’s PM says he “will not tolerate” another nuclear test from North Korea, Japan sends up sniffer planes to try to detect radiation.”

On August 11th, President Trump stated that “military solutions” are in place for the rogue regime.

It’s standard for a president to be woken in the middle of the night to be informed of major news involving national security.

Update: Trump issued a series of statements via Twitter regarding the situation.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis issued a stern warning to Kim Jong-un that the US could annihilate his country.

“Any threat to the United States or its territories including Guam or our allies will be met with a massive military response.

Kim Jong Un should take heed the United Nations Security Council’s unified voice. All members unanimously agreed on the threat North Korea poses. And they remain unanimous in their commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Because we are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely, North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.”

Watch.

If North Korea did indeed test a hydrogen bomb, and not just a nuclear one, it means we’re entering a whole new, and very dangerous world.

Share this if you want Trump to take care of fat-boy Kim once & for all!

BREAKING NEWS!!! Here It Is!! Congress MEMO RELEASE! THEY’RE GOING TO PRISON!!

Published

on

#ReleaseTheMemo has the rallying cry for Conservatives, Republicans, and those on the Right for the FBI/FISA/Russia memo.  We have been shouting it from the rooftops publically lobbying Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes for the release of the memo for the last few days and it seems we are finally being heard.  Many members of Congress themselves taking to social media themselves to lobby for the public release of the memo.  Men like Rep. Dave Joyce of the 14th District of Ohio who tweeted –

“Great news! Our efforts to ReleaseTheMemo have been effective and the HPSIC plans to begin the process to release the FBI/FISA/Russia memo. This may take up to 19+ Congressional work days but Americans deserve to know the truth.”

Zero Hedge reported all hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. and rightfully so after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives Thursday. It demonstrates that the government views our fourth amendment as simply words on paper and the contents of the memo are so explosive it could and most definitely SHOULD lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

As a result of this revelation, many House Republicans approached Speaker Paul Ryan about incorporating a vote to make public this explosive new FISA abuse memo as part of government shutdown negotiations. The four-page document, circulated to the full House details the egregious abuses of surveillance by the FBI, DOJ, and Obama administration against the Trump campaign during and after the 2016 US presidential election.

The revelations contained within this Republican majority authored report is astounding, to say the least.  Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) describes it as “jaw-dropping and demands full transparency” while the top-ranking Democrat on the House Intel Committee, Adam Schiff (D-CA) attempts to dismiss the memo as little more than “profoundly misleading” talking points drafted by Republican staffers.

Schiff calls it “rife with factual inaccuracies and referencing highly classified materials that most Republican Intelligence Committee members were forced to acknowledge they had never read, this is meant only to give Republican House members a distorted view of the FBI. This may help carry White House water, but it is a deep disservice to our law enforcement professionals.”

As reported by Bloomberg –

Gaetz said the effort was led by Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows of North Carolina and caucus co-founder Jim Jordan of Ohio.

Jordan confirmed that some conservatives had “highlighted” in continuing resolution talks that it was “extremely important” that the memo go public. He said it was not something they were requiring of the Republican leadership in return for votes. “But it was something we definitely talked about — that needs to happen,” Jordan added.

Meadows earlier referred to “subplots” of promises the Freedom Caucus was able to extract from the leadership before he agreed to support the continuing resolution.

Mr. Meadows and Mr. Jordan and many conservatives want to include in this negotiation a requirement that the House make public intelligence documents that highlight the unfair treatment of the president” by the FBI and the Justice Department, Gaetz said.

Gaetz said he couldn’t describe the contents of the entire memo put together by the House Intelligence Committee “because to do so would reveal classified information, in the absence of a vote to do so,” he said. “Just 218 votes and the American people can read this intelligence information that goes to the fundamentals of our democracy.”

“Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much,” said Meadows.

Other Republican Congressmen have weighed in with their opinions as well expressing their disgusted most notably Rep. Steve King (R-IA) stating – I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was neverTrump & alwaysHillary. #releasethememo

Calls for the memo’s release have dominated social media since its existence was made known, with many suggesting it be leaked in a similar fashion to Dianne Feinstein’s publication of transcripts of a closed-door testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by opposition research firm Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson.

Representative Jody Hice of Georgia’s 10th District joined the call for transparency to #ReleaseTheMemo stating by way of social media – “Earlier this morning, I examined the classified, four-page memo from @HouseIntelComm regarding the FBI, DOJ, and the so-called #RussianCollusion. To put it simply, “WOW.” I joined the call to #ReleaseTheMemo. Americans deserve truth and transparency.”

Rep. Ron DeSantis states of the memo and the necessity to release it to the American people – “While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth.”

BREAKING!!! McCain’s Wife Just Called TRUMP – It’s Really Bad!

HE DIDN’T EXPECT IT!

Published

on

In an official White House statement we now know President Donald Trump on Friday made a call the wife of Republican Arizona Senator John McCain, Cindy McCain, after getting news that he had been hospitalized this week as he battles one of the deadliest forms of cancers known to man.

McCain who is 81 years old was diagnosed with a highly lethal form of brain cancer in July and on Wednesday his office said he had been admitted to the hospital with complications.

The statement read that Senator McCain was currently receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for what is considered normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy. But that he remains in high spirits and eternally grateful to his physicians for their excellent care they have provided for him since his treatment has begun. In the statement, he also thanked his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes and states that the senator looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible.

McCain’s Republican colleagues expressed high optimism that he will be able to make the vote on the tax overhaul next week since senators must be physically present on the Senate floor to cast votes. Considering this time he will vote with the GOP lets all hope and pray this is true.

MSN Reports:

President Trump: U.S. Economy to ‘Rock’ as GOP Races to Tax Vote

GOP lawmakers posted their sweeping, 503-page bill — with permanent tax cut for U.S. corporations and temporary benefits for individuals — on Friday evening after gaining key votes from two Republican senators who’d threatened to oppose it. Now, with votes planned in the House and Senate by the middle of next week, Trump is closing in on his first major legislative victory.

The bill — hammered out behind closed doors by Republican leaders — would slash the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, the lowest that rate has been since 1939. It would provide across-the-board tax cuts for most individuals, but then wipe them off the books by 2026. Whether to extend them would be up to a future Congress.

Trump’s White House applauded Friday’s developments, which Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called a major step toward achieving the president’s promises of faster economic growth and “much needed financial relief to all Americans.”

“It’ll be fantastic for the middle-income people and for jobs, most of all,” Trump said on Saturday at the White House before boarding Marine One for Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland. He predicted U.S. economic growth “could go to 4, 5 or even 6 percent, ultimately.”

“We are really going to start to rock,” Trump told reporters.

House leaders plan to hold their vote Tuesday. Timing for the Senate vote was less clear, though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the chamber would “get this bill done” next week.

Everything You Need to Know About the GOP Tax-Overhaul Plan

Trump and congressional Republicans have repeatedly pitched the tax measure as a boon for the middle class, despite independent analyses of earlier versions that said most of the benefit would go to higher earners. The final bill would provide a larger tax cut for the highest earners by shaving the top individual tax rate to 37 percent from 39.6 percent, a lower level than was proposed in either the House or Senate versions.

“This April 15 filing season — that is the last time you will file under this monstrous, broken tax code,” House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady said Friday evening. Brady kicked off a remarkably rapid law-making effort on Nov. 2, when he released an initial bill. The final version reflects significant changes — many of them aimed at shoring up GOP votes.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who had announced his opposition to an earlier version of the legislation, switched to “yes” after tax writers changed the bill to broaden the child tax credit’s benefits for working families. Rubio said in a Twitter message that the change “is a solid step toward broader reforms which are both pro-growth and pro-worker.”

‘Major Wins’
Senator Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who hasn’t committed to supporting the final legislation, issued a news release saying she’d secured “major wins” in it, including provisions that would temporarily broaden an individual deduction for medical expenses and broaden the types of state and local taxes that can be deducted below a $10,000 cap.

Collins also seeks approval of separate legislation that would shore up individual health insurance markets — where experts say premiums could rise because the tax bill would repeal the Obamacare individual mandate. The Congressional Budget Office has previously estimated that the change would lead to as many as 13 million fewer Americans having health coverage over a decade.

But the most surprising announcement came from Bob Corker of Tennessee — the only Republican senator who voted against an earlier Senate version of the legislation — when he said that he’d reversed course and would vote “yes.”

Corker’s concern — that the legislation would increase federal deficits — was not addressed in the GOP’s final product. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office estimated on Friday that the legislation would increase deficits by $1.455 trillion over 10 years, an amount that’s slightly higher than the projection for the version Corker opposed earlier this month.

‘Disappointing’ on Deficit
“This is a bad day to be a deficit hawk,” said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense. “While Senator Corker’s decision is disappointing, the entire Republican conference should be against this deficit-financed tax cut,” Ellis said.

McConnell himself had cited deficit concerns earlier this year in discussing tax legislation. “It will have to be revenue-neutral,” he said in an interview with Bloomberg News. “We have a $21 trillion debt.”

By changing his position, Corker, who’s exchanged bitter remarks with Trump over the president’s personal style, cleared the way for the president’s first real policy victory on Capitol Hill.

Whether it will constitute a political victory remains to be seen. Public opinion polls have shown that earlier versions of the bill were unpopular, but Trump administration officials and GOP leaders predict the tax cuts, once finalized, will gain favor in 2018, ahead of congressional elections.

Democrats — all of whom voted against earlier versions of the legislation in both chambers — have decried the rapid, largely secretive process that produced the bill.

“This monstrosity is a bill that only Donald Trump and Republicans, who have accomplished next to nothing in this Congress, could love,” said Representative Lloyd Doggett, a Texas Democrat who serves on the tax-writing Ways and Means panel. “It will not grow our economy, it only burdens us with an immense amount of debt.”

On Wednesday, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen offered only a lukewarm endorsement of the legislation’s effect on the national economy. “It’s not a gigantic increase in growth,” Yellen said during a news conference.

I am very aware most people on the right don’t agree nor hold Senator McCain in very high regards, in fact, neither do I. But he is still a human being that’s suffering and he deserves our prayers and well wishes at a time that’s so tragic for him and his family. Let’s also hope and pray there comes a day we will never have to see another soul lost to Cancer and its ravishing treatment.

Please share in support of Senator John McCain….

BREAKING: Military On HIGH ALERT After Who Was Spotted Off On Florida’s Coast! It’s WAR!

THEY DIDN’T LISTEN!

Published

on

After months of threats of America entering into World War III following repeat tests and provocations of war by North Korea’s despot dictator, Kim Jong-un, a horrifying discovery was just found right off Florida’s coast. For the second time this year, we’re seeing something that hasn’t happened since the Cold War, the first being Hawaii preparing for an attack, and now things have definitely gotten worse.

Ever since President Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria almost a year ago, tensions have been on the rise between the United States, North Korea, and Russia. Now one of these countries appears to be planning an attack on our soil after a national security alert was sparked. The Daily Mail reports that military personnel are now on high alert after multiple spy ships were spotted off Florida’s coast. Top officials are extremely concerned that this foreign vessel belongs to the Russians.

Fox News reports:

The Russian spy ship first spotted near American waters last year is making its way back in the direction of the U.S., Fox News confirmed on Thursday.

The Victor Leonov is still in the Caribbean, according to officials, but heading north off the coast of Florida, home to a U.S. Navy base located in North Florida, east of Jacksonville.

The ship could be off the Florida coast by Friday if the ship maintains present course and speed, according to officials.

There is also a ballistic missile submarine base located in southern Georgia known as Kings Bay, which is another likely destination for the spy ship to loiter and watch U.S. “boomers” — as the ballistic missile subs are called — enter and leave port.

The Washington Free Beacon was the first to report on this story.

Fox News previously reported that last year, during a White House press conference, President Donald Trump weighed in on the story first reported by Fox News.

“Hey, the greatest thing I could do is shoot that ship that’s 30 miles offshore right out of the water,” Trump said. “Everyone in this country is going to say, ‘Oh, it’s so great.’ That’s not great. That’s not great. I would love to be able to get along with Russia.”

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said in a tweet the day before Trump’s comments in February 2017 that Russia was trying to “expand influence.”

“Russia is acting like it has a permission slip to expand influence, test limits of reach.,” Murphy wrote. “Questions are obvious: does it, and if so, why?”

The Russian spy ship Viktor Leonov in 2014.

Putin has been taunting the idea of threatening world peace instead of helping it, as the tensions rise with North Korea and he competes for power and negative attention with Kim Jong-un. This moves also comes on the heels of major action being taken again uncooperative nations at the United Nations.

President Donald Trump has given one of the best Christmas gifts the American People have ever gotten, and once again kept another one of his many promises. On Christmas Eve, the US ambassador to the United Nations, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley announced that President Trump has given the order to cut its 2018 contribution to the United Nations by $285 million, that’s a cut of nearly 25 percent and a great start in the plan to fully defund the Anti-Semitic and Anti-American United Nations.

The Washington Free Beacon explains why this is of specific concern to our military:

Norfolk is the location of the Navy’s major East Coast naval base and New London is also a major submarine base near Groton.

A second official said the AGI ship, for auxiliary, general intelligence, is being tracked by the Navy and appears similar to previous Russian operations in this region.

“What makes it noteworthy is the increase of Russian naval activity worldwide,” this official said. “It makes us pay close attention, not to the tactics, but to how this fits into overall Russian naval behavior.”

The Leonov deployment also is another example of Russia’s increase maritime competition with the United States, “this time in our backyard,” the second officials said.

“Most assume competition will be seen and felt far from home,” he said. “This is another reminder that we are an island nation subject to naval competition right off our shores.”

Putin seems intent on causing turmoil and has been taunting our president with these calculated moves since April when he did something similar in response to Trump bombing Syria after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad decided to gas his people.

In April, Putin tried to block America from attacking by positioning his military in front of ours and attempting to grandstand the U.S., saying we have to go through them to get to Syria. In a strange coincidence, yesterday’s airstrike was exactly 100 years to the day of U.S. entering into World War I. After Putin’s latest move, this day could also bring about the third World War depending on what strategy is employed next.

As Russia moves their warships into place and promises to create an air defense system for Syria, they have forgotten one key item. There is a new sheriff in town, and the snowflakes have gone home. Russia’s archaic military is no match for General Mattis’s current military muscle. Our ships and war plans are light years beyond the Russian counterpart. So rattle your saber, Putin, the real world superpower just returned.
