‘Declaration of War’: North Korea Claims Trump Speech Brought ‘All Options’ to the Table

A North Korean official said President Trump’s comments last week to the United Nations General Assembly amounted to a U.S. “declaration of war” against the Hermit Kingdom — the latest rhetoric in a war of words that comes a day after a propaganda video from Pyongyang featured missiles demolishing a U.S. aircraft and jets.

The 90-second video released on the DPRK Today news site one day after U.S. jets flew over waters east of North Korea, began with images mocking Trump before flashing to a submarine-launched missile striking the USS Carl Vinson, Yonhap News Agency reported. The aircraft carrier is seen exploding and disintegrating into pieces.

Meanwhile, words flash across the screen warning America against considering military action: “Should F-35, B-1B or the Carl Vinson lead the U.S attack, they will head to the grave in that order.” (Read more from “‘Declaration of War’: North Korea Claims Trump Speech Brought ‘All Options’ to the Table” HERE)

Will Trump Open U.S. Doors to Another Country’s Muslims?

By Leo Hohmann. This is pack journalism at its best, a virtual media blitz on a topic few Americans know anything about in a land faraway . . .

So what is it that has CNN, Reuters, PBS, the Associated Press, and Politico all racing to Burma to cover?

They can’t wait to tell the heart-wrenching stories of Burma’s persecuted Rohingya Muslims . . .

The media onslaught, which critics say only tells half the story, has now caught the attention of the Trump administration.

Vice President Mike Pence used a high-level United Nations Security Council meeting Thursday to plead the case for the Rohingya, calling on the world body to do more to help the poor, beleaguered Muslims. (Read more from “Will Trump Open U.S. Doors to Another Country’s Muslims?” HERE)

Rohingya Refugees to Receive $32 Million From U.S.

By John Haltiwanger. The U.S. government will provide $32 million in aid to help the hundreds of thousands Rohingya refugees who’ve fled Myanmar since late August, the State Department said Wednesday.

The aid includes “emergency shelter, food security, nutritional assistance, health assistance, psychosocial support, water, sanitation and hygiene, livelihoods, social inclusion, non-food items, disaster and crisis risk reduction, restoring family links” for more than 400,000 Rohingya who have fled to Bangladesh or been displaced within Myanmar, the State Department said in a statement.

The help from the Trump administration came as a surprise because the president did not refer to the Rohingya in his United Nations remarks on Tuesday, nor in a brief chat with Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday.

15 Year Old Arrested After 6 Injured in Acid Attack

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after six people were injured on Saturday night in what police suspect was a mass acid attack in Stratford, east London.

It came after a “noxious substance” was thrown in several areas – including by the Westfield shopping centre and Olympic Park – during a stand-off between two groups of males, police said.

Witnesses described how innocent victims caught in the crossfire screamed in pain after being hit with fluid, with one shouting: “‘I can’t see, I can’t see.”

They said the attacks came after a brawl erupted inside the Stratford Centre between the youths and the trouble then spilled outside. (Read more from “15 Year Old Arrested After 6 Injured in Acid Attack” HERE)

Muslim Writers Say Irma Is Allah’s Revenge

A number of Arab leaders in the Middle East attacked the United States following Hurricane Irma, claiming the storm was punishment from Allah for the nation’s political policies, but now some fellow Arabs have come to America’s defense, says a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

The storm that ravaged Caribbean islands before hitting Florida left behind a death toll in the state of more than two dozen and billions of dollars in property damage.

Several Arab writers immediately claimed the storm was Allah’s revenge, according to researchers at the Middle East Media Research Center, who monitor, analyze and report on media in the region.

MEMRI many on Arab social media expressed delight in the disaster, “calling Irma divine punishment for the U.S. administration’s policy vis-à-vis the Arab and Muslim countries.”

For example, Lebanese imam Sheikh Mus’ad Najem tweeted: “America, with all its power, its people, its iron, all its institutions, and its capabilities, is helpless before a storm – as if Allah were avenging all those who lost their relatives.” (Read more from “Muslim Writers Say Irma Is Allah’s Revenge” HERE)

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Weighs Using ‘Kinetic Weapon’ on North Korea

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hinted at using a kinetic weapon on Tuesday while discussing tensions with North Korea when he made a Freudian slip.

Mattis was asked whether there was “any military option the US can take with North Korea that would not put Seoul at grave risk,” Mattis responded, “Yes, there are, but I will not go into details.”

Later during the press conference, another reporter questioned Mattis and caught him off-guard:

“Just to clarify, you said that there were possible military options that would not create a grave risk to Seoul,” a reporter asked. “Are we talking kinetic options as well?”

“Yes, I don’t want to go into that,” Mattis responded.

Previously, Mattis stated that a war with North Korea would “involve the massive shelling of an ally’s capital, (South Korea) which is one of the most densely packed cities on earth.”

U.S. President Donald Trump in a speech to the United Nations on Tuesday threatened to “totally destroy North Korea” if Pyongyang didn’t quit its nuclear testing and threats.

This also comes after the U.S. and South Korea wrapped up its annual military drill harassing of North Korea, reminding the dictatorship of its military presence at its southern border.

In 2015, the U.S. Air Force confirmed that military contractor Boeing has an electromagnetic pulse weapon, which is capable of targeting and destroying electrical systems without the collateral damage of killing people. It’s essentially an EMP that takes out the power grid of a given area.

The project is known as the “CHAMP,” or Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project, and it already has been operational since 2015, according to Air Force Research Laboratory commander Major General Tom Masiello.

In January, Trump’s Air Force chief of staff revealed to USA TODAY that the U.S. President could use “space weapons against ISIS.”

“If we want to be more agile than the reality is we are going to have to push decision authority down to some lower levels in certain areas the big question that we’ve got to wrestle with … is the authorities to operate in cyber and space,” General David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, told USA TODAY.

However, the U.S. also has other kinetic weapons in its arsenal that would allow Trump to “totally destroy North Korea” — one of weapons system is the “Rods from God.”

What is the Rods from God? The “Rods from God” is a part of the directed energy weapon family; it’s a kinetic energy weapon.

The rods are directed munitions, the higher you are (the greater your distance from the planet), the greater the kinetic energy you have.

In 2004, published in Popular Science, Eric Adams writes:

A pair of satellites orbiting several hundred miles above the Earth would serve as a weapons system. One functions as the targeting and communications platform while the other carries numerous tungsten rods–up to 20 feet in length and a foot in diameter–that it can drop on targets with less than 15 minutes’ notice. When instructed from the ground, the targeting satellite commands its partner to drop one of its darts. The guided rods enter the atmosphere, protected by a thermal coating, traveling at 36,000 feet per second–comparable to the speed of a meteor. The result: complete devastation of the target, even if it’s buried deep underground. The two-platform configuration permits the weapon to be “reloaded” by just launching a new set of rods, rather than replacing the entire system.

The concept of developing kinetic energy weapons has been around since the 1950s when the RAND Corporation proposed placing rods on tips of ICBMs, although the Pentagon won’t say how far along the research is, or even confirm that any efforts exist, citing those details as classified. The “U.S. Air Force Transformation Flight Plan,” published by the Air Force in November 2003, references “hypervelocity rod bundles” in its outline of future space-based weapons; and, in 2002, another report from RAND, “Space Weapons, Earth Wars,” talks about the effectiveness of such a weapon.

A space weapons agreement was proposed by Rep Dennis Kucinich called the “Space Preservation Treaty” in 2005 which states that countries won’t seek to weaponize space. However, that bill never made it past the introduction stage. Another House of Representatives bill known as the H.R.2977 “Space Preservation Act” was proposed in 2001 to ban the use of “exotic weapons” listing the following:

(B) Such terms include exotic weapons systems such as —  (i) electronic, psychotronic, or information weapons; (ii) chemtrails; (iii) high altitude ultra low frequency weapons systems; (iv) plasma, electromagnetic, sonic, or ultrasonic weapons; (v) laser weapons systems; (vi) strategic, theater, tactical, or extraterrestrial weapons; and (vii) chemical, biological, environmental, climate, or tectonic weapons.

Obama violated this agreement under the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act before leaving office, and no one noticed that the legislation he signed is essentially the Star Wars Defense Initiative II that his predecessor, Ronald Reagan, signed calling for a space-based missile system.

‘JUSTICE-PRICING’: Filmmaker Charges White Males $5 More for Tickets

Super-woke Canadian filmmaker Shiraz Higgins has implemented his own so-called “justice-pricing” policy, where he charges white males an extra $5 to view his movie.

The 27-year-old filmmaker (yes, he’s a millennial, can you believe it?) is charging white males $15 a ticket and all others $10, apparently as a way to level-out all that white male privilege.

Higgins told The Canadian Press that the “justice-pricing” is “not a publicity stunt” but “based on the purchasing power of individual groups and ‘price discrimination.'”

“This is not a publicity stunt,” he said. Organizers are “pushing forward because we believe it is an important piece of overall conversation that is happening in society right now,” added Higgins. (Read more from “‘JUSTICE-PRICING’: Filmmaker Charges White Males $5 More for Tickets” HERE)

Palestinian Leader Abbas Brings Unapologetic Jihad to the UN

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas received thunderous applause merely making his way to the podium in front of the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday. His reception was business as usual for the U.N., where the Palestinian cause is celebrated and Israel is obsessively demonized as an apartheid state.

Abbas is the personification of the rotten institution that is the United Nations, which has entire agencies and international holidays dedicated to the Palestinian national movement.

On the eve of the Jewish new year of Rosh Hashanah, Abbas spent most of his speech slamming the Jewish state, making sure to cloak his anti-Semitic fervor as mere “anti-Zionism.” The PA leader decried Israel’s “occupation” of his homeland: the “State of Palestine,” which has never actually existed in history.

“While we call to end the occupation, Israel incites and pretends there’s no Palestinian partner for peace,” Abbas claimed. But as Arutz Sheva reports, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly offered direct talks with the Palestinians, only to continually have his offers rejected.

He also defiantly challenged the Trump administration’s call for the Palestinian government to stop funding terrorism. For decades, the Palestinian Authority has been shelling out hundreds of millions of dollars in stipends and salaries (much of it coming from U.S. foreign aid) to the terrorists and their families. By some estimates, Abbas’ government devotes about 10 percent of its annual budget to the “martyrs fund.”

Instead of making even the smallest of concessions to achieve peace, Abbas used his global stage to “salute” jihadists who have been convicted of murdering innocent men, women, and children.

“I salute our glorious martyrs and courageous prisoners in Israeli jails, and I tell them all that freedom is coming and that the occupation shall come to an end,” Abbas said before the General Assembly.

After mocking America’s efforts to rein in his terrorist payment program, Abbas borrowed President Trump’s campaign rhetoric — perhaps in an effort to cozy up to him. The PA chairman said “draining the swamp of colonial occupation of our land” is imperative to combat terrorism.

After his defiant acts against the U.S. and Israel, President Trump shockingly lauded Abbas as someone “working very hard” for peace.

“It’s a great honor to have President Abbas from the Palestinian Authority with us and his representatives, who have been working very hard with everybody involved toward peace,” Trump stated after his one-on-one meeting with Abbas.

But as the administration will soon find out, Abbas is not, and will never be, the peacemaker that President Trump is looking for. Abbas and his Fatah party have promoted, armed, and financed Islamic extremists since the birth of the Palestine Liberation Organization.

If America wants Israel to find a partner for peace, the terrorist-promoting Mahmoud Abbas is not that man. (For more from the author of “Palestinian Leader Abbas Brings Unapologetic Jihad to the UN” please click HERE)

North Korea Could Test Hydrogen Bomb in Pacific, Top Diplomat Says

North Korea’s foreign minister has said the Communist nation may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean after dictator Kim Jong Un vowed he would take the “highest-level” action against the United States, South Korean media reported Thursday.

The Yonhap news agency reported on comments made to reporters by Ri Yong Ho on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

“We have no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong Un,” Ri was quoted as saying by Yonhap.

Such a test would be considered a major provocation by the U.S., South Korea and Japan. Ri was scheduled to address the U.N. General Assembly on Saturday, a day later than previously scheduled. (Read more from “North Korea Could Test Hydrogen Bomb in Pacific, Top Diplomat Says” HERE)

North Korea Says Trump Speech Is ‘a Dog’s Bark’

North Korea’s top diplomat has called US President Donald Trump’s speech to the UN “the sound of a barking dog”.

Speaking to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, Mr Trump said he would “totally destroy” North Korea if it posed a threat to the US or its allies.

Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho’s comments were North Korea’s first official response to the speech.

The North has continued to develop its nuclear and weapons programmes, in defiance of a UN ban.

Mr Ri told reporters near the UN headquarters in New York: “There is a saying that goes: ‘Even when dogs bark, the parade goes on’.” (Read more from “North Korea Says Trump Speech Is ‘a Dog’s Bark'” HERE)

Hurricane Maria Leaves ‘Total Devastation’ in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico’s energy grid took such a severe blow from deadly Hurricane Maria that restoring power to everyone may take months, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CNN on Wednesday night.

The entire system is down, the governor said. No one on the island has power from utilities.

Puerto Rico, which has been through a long recession and is deeply in debt, has a power grid that is “a little bit old, mishandled and weak,” Rosselló told “Anderson Cooper 360˚.”

“It depends on the damage to the infrastructure,” he said. “I’m afraid it’s probably going to be severe. If it is … we’re looking at months as opposed to weeks or days.” (Read more from “Hurricane Maria Leaves ‘Total Devastation’ in Puerto Rico” HERE)
