EARTHQUAKE 6.3 MAGNITUDE AT NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR TEST SITE FOLLOWING HYDROGEN BOMB ANNOUNCEMENT
Sixth Nuclear “Explosion” Detected At North Korea’s Underground Test Site
A large earthquake was detected in North Korea just hours after Pyongyang released photos of an alleged thermonuclear weapon, stating that it was a hydrogen bomb. According to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, the quake came from Punggyeri, home to North Korea’s underground nuclear test site. The United States Geological Survey (USGS), which monitors seismic activity, detected a 6.3 magnitude quake, described as an “explosion,” only 0 kilometers deep. The China Earthquake Administration, which also detected a 6.3 magnitude, similarly labeled the incident a “suspected explosion” at the time of publication. North Korea experts noted that the incident occurred at 12:30 p.m. North Korea time or “at the half-hour mark,” same as the country’s 4thand 5th nuclear tests. Experts also said that the 6.3 magnitude tremor would be consistent with a thermonuclear explosion. China later reported a 2nd earthquake, magnitude 4.6 due to a suspected “cave in” following the explosion. “The institute recently succeeded in making a more developed nuke, true to the strategic intention of the WPK for bringing about a signal turn in nuclear weaponization,” North Korean state media outlet KCNA reported.
PUTIN WARNS N. KOREA SITUATION ON VERGE OF ‘LARGE-SCALE CONFLICT’
Favors Multilateral Negotiations With Pyongyang Over Direct Pressure
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.”
CHINA STRONGLY CONDEMNS NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR TEST
“We Strongly Urge The DPRK (North Korea) To Face The Strong Will Of Denuclearization From The International Community”
China strongly condemned North Korea’s Sunday nuclear test, slamming Pyongyang for ignoring international condemnation of its atomic weapons program. North Korea “has ignored the international community’s widespread opposition, again carrying out another nuclear test. China’s government expresses resolute opposition and strong condemnation toward this,” the foreign ministry said in a statement on its website. “We strongly urge the DPRK (North Korea) to face the strong will of denuclearization from the international community, earnestly abide by the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council, stop taking mistaken actions which worsen the situation and are also not in line with its own interests, and effectively return to the track of solving the problem through dialogue,” it added. The test was North Korea’s 6th and far more powerful than any weapon it has previously detonated.
ONLY IN CALIFORNIA: SACRAMENTO TO PAY GANG BANGERS A CASH STIPEND IF THEY STOP KILLING PEOPLE
Gives Money In Cash To Gang Agitators, To Graduate School And Remain Peaceful

After a violent weekend of suspected gang-related shootings, Tuesday the Sacramento City Council took action to reduce the bloodshed. It approved a controversial program called Advance Peace, which offers cash stipends to gang members who remain peaceful. “Let’s get going on doing everything we can to save innocent lives,” Steinberg said. The program targets key gang agitators, offering them cash "stipends" to graduate school and remain peaceful. The cost of the program, $1.5 million out of the city’s general fund. Take money from peaceful tax paying citizens and redistribute that money to the gang bangers who are killing them. Maybe we should kick this up to the Federal level and see if we can get taxpayer funds to send to the Islamic State and North Korea.
ANTI-TRUMP ‘RESISTANCE’ GROUPS SPREADING NORTH KOREAN PROPAGANDA
Refuse Fascism And Workers World Party - Marxist Organizations - Our Nation’s Most Active Anti-Trump “Resistance” Take Pro-North Korea Stances
Daily Caller- SGL/CMN
Two of the nation’s most active anti-Trump “resistance” organizations have taken decidedly pro-North Korea stances. The United States has an on-going nuclear standoff with the communist country's leader, Kim Jong Un, who has repeatedly threatened to launch a nuclear strike against America. As tension continues to fester leftist groups show their real colors and they are not red, white and blue. One group is Refuse Fascism, a well-funded “resistance” group created for the express purpose of opposing President Trump’s administration. Internal presentations from a Refuse Fascism conference last month said the group intends to make America’s leaders lose “international legitimacy” as a way of ultimately bringing down the Trump presidency. The other group is Workers World Party, a Marxist organization that has played a leading role in anti-Trump demonstrations across the country.
Both groups have consistently echoed North Korean talking points that demonize America while excusing Un’s genocidal regime, and both groups have instructed their followers to distrust American media reporting that reflects negatively on North Korean leaders’ oppression of their own people.
‘UNACCEPTABLE’: CHINA SLAMS TRUMP’S THREAT TO END COMMERCE WITH N. KOREA’S TRADE PARTNERS
China Ramping Up Trade With North Korea - Claims Trump Being Unfair
China has warned that Donald Trump’s threat to cut off trade with countries that deal with Pyongyang would be “unacceptable” and “unfair” to Beijing. It also stressed that Beijing cannot be the sole player in resolving the North Korean crisis. “What is definitely unacceptable to us is that on the one hand we work so hard to peacefully resolve this issue and on the other hand our interests are subject to sanctions and jeopardized,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said during a Monday news briefing, as quoted by AP. “This is unfair.” It comes after Trump warned on Sunday that the United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea." President Trump’s comments came after North Korea conducted its 6th and most powerful nuclear test on Sunday. Pyongyang claimed the test involved a hydrogen bomb which can be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), according to state news agency KCNA. “The H-bomb, the explosive power of which is adjustable from tens kiloton to hundreds kiloton, is a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP [Electromagnetic pulse] attack according to strategic goals,” the agency said. Trump tweeted in July that trade between China and North Korea had grown almost 40% in the first quarter of 2017. So much for China working with us - but we had to give it a try! President Trump expressed frustration with China. His numbers appear to be based on data released by the Chinese government in April which showed that trade between Beijing and Pyongyang had indeed grown 37.4% during the first 3 months of the year, compared with the same period in 2016.
TRUMP WILL BE ‘DEPOSED IMMEDIATELY’ IF HE BLOCKS TRADE WITH CHINA OVER N. KOREA –SAYS JULIAN ASSANGE CO-FOUNDER OF WIKILEAKS
“90% Of North Korea’s Trade Is With China. If Trump blocks $650B of US Trade With China He’ll Be Deposed Immediately,” Assange tweeted
If Donald Trump blocks trade with China for being a North Korean trade partner, then he’ll be immediately overthrown, says WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, responding to Trump’s tweet threatening to ban trade with states that do business with Pyongyang. “90% of North Korea’s trade is with China. If Trump blocks $650 Billion of US trade with China he’ll be deposed immediately,” Assange tweeted. North Korean state TV said that Pyongyang had successfully tested a hydrogen explosive device which can be mounted on an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). The test followed Pyongyang’s claims that it developed a new, more advanced hydrogen nuke that is small enough to be fitted on an ICBM. Also on Sunday, President Trump took to social media to say that Washington “is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.” Trump’s “other options” include a “full range” of capabilities, including nuclear ones, that the US is ready to use to defend its “homeland, territories, and allies” against North Korea. In a series of tweets Sunday, Trump branded North Korea a “rogue nation and a threat.” The latest developments in Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities are “very hostile and dangerous to the United States,” he said. U.S. goods and services trade with China totaled some $648.2 billion back in 2016, according to data from the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR). This makes China the “largest goods trading partner” of the US, and the 3rd largest US goods export market. The international community immediately condemned the test, supporting the idea of imposing new sanctions against the North. The Russian Foreign Ministry also condemned the North Korean test, adding that in a situation like this, it is essential “to keep composure and to refrain from any acts which may lead to further escalation of tensions.” The test is “another example of Pyongyang’s outright disregard” of UN Security Council resolutions and international law, the ministry said in a statement. Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga suggested include restrictions on oil trade with North Korea into the list of new sanctions. In the meantime, China’s Global Times newspaper warned against cutting off the North’s oil supply. The newspaper warned that a potential conflict between Beijing and Pyongyang would “transcend any conflict between the US and North Korea, and take center stage on the Korean Peninsula.”
NORTH KOREA COULD ‘WIPE OUT’ US ECONOMY BY FIRING EMP INTO ATMOSPHERE
‘The whole world would suffer if there was a major breakdown of the United States’
North Korea is poised to deliver a devastating blow to the United States economy with a series of high-tech electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks, which would plunge the world into chaos, claims the BBC’s foreign affairs editor. North Korea has long boasted about its ability to bring down the United State’s financial systems and transport networks with a series of EMP attacks. Politicians in the US are said to be alarmed by the growing threat of a high-altitude nuclear blast and the resulting electromagnetic pulse. An EMP attack would fry the circuitry of mobile phones and wipe out online banking, food resources and the USA’s financial systems, resulting in a global financial crash, claimed Simpson.
'TEEN VOGUE' MAGAZINE TARGETS 12 TO 18 YEAR OLDS - PROMOTES TEEN PROMISCUITY
Article Teaches Teens How To Carry Their Sex Toys And Lubricants As Back-To-School “Necessities”
Elizabeth Johnston, more popularly known as the Activist Mommy who has become well known of late for her pro-family activist work is calling on people to join a campaign against Teen Vogue. Teen Vogue is a popular magazine that targets 12 to 18 year-olds. The Magazine came under scrutiny last month due to an article that not only tried to persuade teens to commit an abhorrent act, but instructed them on how to do it. The article on what should be provided for teens as back-to-school “necessities”, has sparked outrage. Mrs Johnston said concerning those "necessities", "How about some paper and some pencils, right? ... No.” Mrs Johnson lamented, “They are teaching our kids how to carry their sex toys and lubricants for all the casual sex that they'll be having as high schoolers.” Parents are warned that the article in no way represents traditional values – nor any type of Christian thinking, for that matter. When Johnston was asked whether or not there is any trace of biblical or conservative values present in the Teen Vogue piece, she provided a consummate answer. “Absolutely not,” she impressed. “If there's anyone within the sound of my voice who is allowing their kids to read Teen Vogue or have a subscription to Teen Vogue, please cancel that immediately. Get to your local schools and gas stations and libraries, and tell them what kind of outrage and pandering of obscenity to minors is taking place.” Mrs Johnston points out that if the author of the article on the abhorrent act had texted the contents to a 12-year-old, they would be fired or arrested. The activist Mommy produced and posted a video on the subject – which now has more than 11 million views – and she is now launching the “Pull Teen Vogue” project to get the controversial magazine off of the shelves and encourage advertisers to take their ads somewhere else. Twitter suspended Mrs Johnston's account with them.
