Why Does The Mainstream Media Purposely Ignore The Mass Killings Of Christians That Happen All Over The Globe?

 

Last week, when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so.  It was a major news event, and it needed to be reported.  But shouldn’t mass killings of Christians be given the same sort of media coverage?  Sadly, we all know that doesn’t happen.  Whenever there is a mass killing of Christians, it is usually entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening.  Those that control the mainstream media consider Christians to be one of the main obstacles to “progress” in this country, and so any story that would put Christians in a positive or sympathetic light simply does not fit any of the narratives that they are pushing.

As a result of the lack of media coverage, the vast majority of Americans do not know that “4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons” last year.

That number breaks down to an average of 11 per day.

In Nigeria, more than 120 Christians have been gunned down or killed with machetes over the past three weeks, but Breitbart was the only big media outlet to report on it…

As Breitbart News alone reported among major news outlets, Fulani jihadists racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.

The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.

And of course Breitbart is not exactly “mainstream” media.

So why won’t anyone else report on this?

And this isn’t the first time this has happened.  Last June, twelve entire Christian villages in central Nigeria were completely wiped out…

In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.

I’ll bet that most of you had not heard about that until now.

On the other side of the world, 20 innocent people were slaughtered when Muslim radicals bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral in January…

On January 27, Muslim extremists bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral on the Philippine island of Jolo, killing some 20 people and injuring dozens of others.

Once again, this is yet another mass killing that was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media.

Is the anti-Christian bias among the mainstream media so strong that they can’t even bring themselves to report the basic facts to us?

People deserve to know what is happening.  Christian persecution is rising in almost every nation on the planet, and this huge ongoing crisis should be on our front pages on a continual basis.

But instead, we never get to hear any of these stories unless we seek out alternative sources of information.

Over in China, the persecution of Christians has reached a frightening crescendo.  Recently, officials have been going house to house and replacing pictures of Jesus Christ “with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping”…

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to harass and persecute Christians and, in recent months, has taken to removing pictures of Jesus Christ from inside homes and replacing them with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping.

In addition, Communist officials have removed Christian symbols and phrases on the outside of homes and replaced them with phrases praising socialist materialism.

But they aren’t stopping there.  Bibles are being burned, and any churches that do not “cooperate” with Chinese officials are being either shut down or destroyed.  Earlier in 2019, one of the largest megachurches in the entire country was literally blown to pieces with dynamite…

Chinese authorities blew up a well-known Christian megachurch earlier this year, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party.

Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People’s Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shanxi province

We are talking about evil that is on a level that is difficult to comprehend.

So why won’t the mainstream media talk about any of this?

Similar things are happening on the other side of the world too.  In Eritrea, Christians are being imprisoned in “small shipping containers in scorching heat”…

Since 1993, President Afwerki has overseen an authoritarian brutal regime that rests on massive human rights violations. During the 2019 World Watch List reporting period, government security forces conducted many house-to-house raids and imprisoned hundreds of Christians in inhumane conditions, including small shipping containers in scorching heat.

And in North Korea, Christians are “being hung on a cross over a fire, crushed under a steamroller, herded off bridges, and trampled underfoot”…

According to charity Aid to the Church in Need, at least 200,000 Christians have gone missing in North Korea since 1953 — many of those have been summarily executed. As to the specific treatment of those persecuted, the 2014 UN Commission of Inquiry report discovered that the North Korean regime has been guilty of “crimes against humanity.”

According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide, violent incidents against Christians include “being hung on a cross over a fire, crushed under a steamroller, herded off bridges, and trampled underfoot.”

If you were to replace “Christians” with some other favored group in any of the examples that I have just shared, you would instantly have front page news all over the planet.

The mainstream media is definitely not “independent”, and they are not looking out for you.

They have their own agenda, and anything that does not fit that agenda does not get to be part of “the news”.

So far in 2019, there have been 453 Islamic terror attacks in which 1,956 people have been murdered.  But you will never hear those numbers from the mainstream media.

Instead, when the mainstream media talks about Bible-believing Christians it is almost always an attack story.  As a recent Breitbart article aptly observed, having “an anti-Christian bias” has become “the last acceptable prejudice”…

How much mileage can be gained from Muslims murdering Christians, when Christians in America are often seen as an obstacle to the “progress” desired by liberals? The left sees Christians in the United States as part of the problem and seeks to undermine their credibility and influence at every turn rather than emboldening them.

Anti-Christian bias has been rightly called “the last acceptable prejudice,” one that few bother condemning.

It is time to turn off the mainstream news for good.

They quit reporting “the news” a long time ago, and now it is all about promoting one left-wing narrative after another.

Today, trust in the media is at an all-time low, and it is easy to understand why so many Americans are absolutely sick and tired of being lied to by the big media companies. (Click to Source)

Report: “11 Christians Killed Every Day for Their Faith”

by Raymond Ibrahim

  • One of the most noteworthy trends concerns the “shocking reality of persecution against women…. In many places, they experience a ‘double persecution’ — one for being a Christian and one for being a woman.”
  • Another trend that should send an alarm is that, “For the first time since the start of the World Watch List, India has entered the top 10” — meaning Christians there are now experiencing “extreme persecution.”

Last year, Christians were persecuted more than ever before in the modern era — and this year is expected to be worse: “4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons,” according to Open Doors USA in its recently published World Watch List 2019 (WWL) of the top 50 nations where Christians are persecuted. “On average, that’s 11 Christians killed every day for their faith.” Additionally, “2,625 Christians were detained without trial, arrested, sentenced and imprisoned” in 2018, and “1,266 churches or Christian buildings were attacked.”

Whereas 215 million Christians faced persecution in 2018, 245 million will suffer in 2019, according to Open Doors — a 14% increase, that represents 30 million more people abused for their faith. This means that “1 in 9 Christians experience high levels of persecution worldwide” (note: all quotations in this article are from the WWL 2019).

One of the most noteworthy trends concerns the “shocking reality of persecution against women.”

“In many places, they experience a ‘double persecution’ — one for being a Christian and one for being a woman. Even in the most restricted circumstances, gender-specific persecution is a key means of destroying the minority Christian community.”

Last year’s WWL provided more specific numbers: “At least six women every day are raped, sexually harassed or forced into marriage to a Muslim man under the threat of death for their Christian faith…”

Another trend, one that should send an alarm, is that, “For the first time since the start of the World Watch List, India has entered the top 10” — meaning Christians there are now experiencing “extreme persecution”:

“Christians have been targeted by Hindu nationalist extremists more each year. Since the current ruling party took power in 2014, attacks have increased, and Hindu radicals believe they can attack Christians with no consequences. The view of the nationalists is that to be Indian is to be Hindu, so any other faith — including Christianity — is viewed as non-Indian. Additionally, in some regions of the country, converts to Christianity from Hinduism experience extreme persecution, discrimination and violence.”

The most obvious trend remains unchanged:

“Islamic oppression continues to impact millions of Christians. In seven out of the top 10 World Watch List countries, the primary cause of persecution is Islamic oppression. This means, for millions of Christians — particularly those who grew up Muslim or were born into Muslim families — openly following Jesus can have painful consequences. They can be treated as second-class citizens, discriminated against for jobs or even violently attacked.”

Not only is that responsible for the persecution Christians face in seven of the ten worst nations; 38 of the 50 nations making the list are Muslim-majority.

Among the worst persecutors are those that rule according to Sharia. In Afghanistan (ranked #2), “Christianity is not permitted to exist” because it “is an Islamic state by constitution, which means government officials, ethnic group leaders, religious officials and citizens are hostile toward adherents of any other religion.” Similarly, in Somalia, (#3), “The Christian community is small and under constant threat of attack. Sharia law and Islam are enshrined in the country’s constitution, and the persecution of Christians almost always involves violence.” In Iran (#9), “society is governed by Islamic law, which means the rights and professional possibilities for Christians are heavily restricted.”

While the forms persecution and actors behind them vary, many seem connected to Islam. For example, “Under Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy laws, Christians continue to live in daily fear they will be accused of blasphemy — which can carry a penalty of death.” In Libya (#4), Yemen (#8), Syria (#11), Iraq (#13) war has given rise to Islamic militancy and general lawlessness, both of which prey on Christian minorities.

In Muslim nations where Christians make up a minority, a significant quantity of churches might be needed to meet their numbers — the visibility of which may offend Muslim sensibilities. Thus in Egypt (#16), where Christians number at least 10% of the population (possibly even double that):

“Severe restrictions on building or securing places for worship prevent Christians from congregating, in addition to hostility and violence toward believers who do gather. In recent years, Islamic extremist groups have targeted Christians and churches in numerous violent and deadly acts of persecution.”

“The spread of radical Islam across sub-Saharan Africa” is another growing and troubling trend. For example,

“Nigeria’s score for violence [99.9%] has stayed as high as possible, primarily due to the increased attacks on Christian communities by militant Fulani herdsmen. These attacks claimed the lives of hundreds of believers during the reporting period, and villages and churches burned to the ground. Additionally, in parts of northern Nigeria, Christians are treated as second-class citizens.”

Some WWL’s findings are surprising. Although Orthodox Christians are the majority of its population, the Russian Federation is #41, and the “source of persecution” is, again, “Islamic oppression”: “Christians in parts of Russia dominated by Islam report the highest level of persecution.”

Despite the role of religion, North Korea (#1) remains the worst nation, where “never-ending pressure and violence” is directed against Christians:

“The primary driver of persecution in North Korea is the state. For three generations, everything in the country has focused on idolizing the Kim family. Christians are seen as hostiles to be eradicated.”

As difficult as it is for Christians identified by the Kim regime, there may be some eventual relief for them and those in other communist nations (such as China, #27): cults of personalities might last so long, but in the Arab and Muslim world, where, sadly, there seems to be little or no education to respect religious differences, the weight of the dominant religion continues to permeate all of society.

Trump Will Meet With Kim Jong-Un, Anthony Kennedy May Retire

8-trump-kim-w1200-h630

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly requested a direct, face-to-face meeting with President Trump to talk about complete denuclearization.  In a shocking announcement, the President has agreed to a meeting “by May”—presumably to occur shortly before Israel’s 70th anniversary on May 14th.

In the meantime, North Korea has agreed to suspend all missile and nuclear tests while conceding that U.S.-South Korean military exercises will continue.  The sudden, concessionary tone from Kim Jong-un has startled geopolitical analysts, showing that Reagan-esque “peace through strength” is the only effective method of international diplomacy, but time will tell.  One thing is for sure—the last 30 years of Democrat and Neocon policies have done absolutely nothing to dissuade the North Korean leadership.  All the while hundreds of thousands—including untold numbers of Christians—continue to languish in labor camps.

– – –

In other news, rumor is continuing to boil that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy may retire this summer, which would be a vacancy that could fundamentally transform SCOTUS from socially liberal to socially conservative (Kennedy was the deciding vote on gay marriage and numerous other issues).  For the nation’s sake I pray he does.  I also pray that he stands up for religious liberty in the upcoming, monumentally important case involving a Christian baker in Colorado who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding.  If he sides with the court’s four liberals, Christian liberty will be stifled like never before.

Please pray with me.

 

– – –

I also want to bring attention to another rapidly developing story that is being largely ignored—the situation for the minority white population in South Africa has suddenly deteriorated and some reports are suggesting they may be in imminent danger.  Please, please pray for this situation immediately.  We have readers in South Africa.  They and their families need your prayers.

Last week the Parliament of South Africa voted to allow the bureaucratic seizure of land owned by white farmers without compensation.  To further inflame tensions, the leader of the racist EFF party has called for violence against whites in the country, setting off alarm bells about a Rwanda-repeat.

I want to hear from our South African friends if you have any news about this.

– – –

Lastly, speculation is building about the significance of March 20th, the presumed start of the next biblical year.  I would be remiss not to mention this.  There is an incredible plethora of numbers, patterns, and day counts pointing to this day, and it’s a day that signals not only the end of the year in which the Revelation 12Sign occurred, but also the beginning of the year in which Israel will celebrate its 70th anniversary.  That is significant in and of itself.

That being said, I think we can make a mistake by suggesting numbers, patterns, and day counts can only find their significance in the rapture.  To the contrary, every day is significant and controlled by God, and some days more significant than others, but sometimes it takes time to realize what that significance is.  For example, the Super Blood Moon in September 2015 didn’t signal the rapture, but the entrance of large numbers of Russian and Iranian troops into the biblical boundaries of Northern Israel.  Likewise, the blood moon in April 2014 did not pinpoint the rapture, but marked a significant number of geopolitical developments and armed conflicts, including the rise of the Islamic State’s caliphate and the civil war in Ukraine.

While I believe the rapture is imminent (probably this year), I’m not sure exactly how this will all play out. (Click to Source)

North Korea preparing for seventh nuclear test days after Kim visit in China

Pyongyang getting ready for seventh nuclear test despite thaw: Japan’s Taro Kono

rocket-launch-693215__480-1

Foreign Minister Taro Kono on Saturday suggested there are signs North Korea is preparing to hold another nuclear test even as tensions on the Korean Peninsula ease ahead of a rare summit between the two Koreas.

The North appears to be “working hard to get ready for the next nuclear test,” Kono said in a lecture in Kochi, referring to the removal of soil from a tunnel at a site where past tests were conducted.

His remarks might be based on satellite imagery provided by the United States.

As for the possibility of summit talks taking place between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kono expressed caution about reacting hastily to Pyongyang’s charm offensive.

“There’s absolutely no need to rush things,” the top diplomat said, adding that North Korea may take advantage of countries accepting invitations to send their leaders to Pyongyang for talks.

There are signs of a thaw on the divided peninsula, with global attention fixed on two closely related events — an inter-Korean leaders’ summit scheduled for April 27, and an unprecedented U.S.-North Korea summit that is expected to be held by the end of May.

North Korea’s most recent nuclear test, its sixth and most powerful, was conducted in September 2017. (Click to Source)

The New Winter Olympics: praising gays and glamorizing murderous regimes while bashing America

Yahweh’s-God’s Righteous Judgement will come upon the US for allowing this perversion to take over this country!

gus_810_500_55_s_c1

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea, February 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Ripping a page from the NFL playbook, the Winter Olympics have gotten off to a rocky start as organizers, participants, and the media have used the games to bash Americans who love both their country and sports more than they want to celebrate LGBT diversity or idolize leaders of North Korea’s barbaric regime.

Like the NFL, the Winter Olympics have become politicized, used to promote progressive political ideology.

It should come as no surprise that television viewership has taken a bad hit compared to recent Winter Olympics: Day 1 coverage was down 15% over 2014 and a whopping 20% over 2010; and Day 2 coverage was down 6% over 2014 and 11% over 2010.

This is despite the fact that the Olympics had almost no competition on other networks on Sunday, according to entertainment trade publication Hollywood Deadline.

Gay Olympians: “Eat your heart out, Pence”  

Two gay U.S. Olympic athletes have used the games to pick a very public fight with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who is at the Games leading the U.S. delegation.

“Mike Pence doesn’t really stand for anything that I believe in,” said figure skater Adam Rippon.  The skater said he would turn down an invitation to the White House because he thinks he wouldn’t be “welcome” because he is gay.

Freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy said that Vice President Pence is a “strange choice” to lead the U.S. delegation to the Olympics.

“To have somebody leading the delegation that’s directly attacked the LGBTQ community, and a Cabinet in general that just sort of stands against us and has tried to do things to set us back, it just seems like a bad fit,” Kenworthy told Ellen Degeneres.

“I feel like the Olympics is all about inclusion and people coming together,” continued Kenworthy, adding that Vice President’s presence is “not really doing that.”

The lesbian talk show host piled on, saying, “I agree with you.  I think it’s a weird choice.”

Yet Pence has never taken a stand against gays.  As Governor of Indiana, Pence fought to protect religious liberty in the Hoosier State––an act incorrectly interpreted by the LGBT world as “anti-LGBT.”

In a taunting instagram posting accompanying a photo of the two gay men embracing each other, Kenworthy said on Friday: “The Opening Ceremony is a wrap and the 2018 Winter Olympic Gaymes are officially under way!  I feel incredibly honored to be here in Korea competing for the US and I’m so proud to be representing the LGBTQ community alongside this amazing guy! Eat your heart out, Pence.”

LGBT-sports news outlet Outsports reports that this year there are a “record 14 ‘out’ LGBT athletes” participating in the Winter Olympics.  Of the fourteen cited, 10 are females and four are gay males, including skier Kenworthy and three male figure skaters.

American media infatuated with murderous North Korean dictator’s sister   

North Korea’s Kim Yo Jung, Kim Jong-un’s younger sister, grabbed the spotlight in Pyeongchang for the first three days of the Olympics.

“Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics,” blared a CNN headline, while The New York Times trumpeted, “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight.”

The Washington Post and others called her “North Korea’s Ivanka Trump.”

The backlash against the left-leaning media giants was fast and furious.

“‘She’s North Korea’s Ivanka Trump!’ if Ivanka Trump oversaw prison labor camps, tortured & starved citizens & ordered a few hundred executions, totally,” tweeted  Stephen Miller.

“She’s literally the deputy director of the ‘Propaganda and Agitation Department’ for one of the world’s most repressive regimes,” said Jesse Lehrich in a tweet.

Frank Luntz noted, “CNN has had harsher coverage of Trump than they have of Kim Jong-Un.”

Kim Yo Jung is North Korea’s director of the Department of Propaganda and Agitation, occupying a powerful political position in her brother’s murderous regime.

Within its fawning coverage, CNN admits that it allows Kim to serve as “a foil to the perception of North Korea as antiquated and militaristic.”

“But as North Korea’s brutal dictator,” continues the CNN report, “Kim’s brother has ruled with an iron fist since coming to power, operating Nazi-style prison camps, repressing political opposition and even executing senior officers and his own family members in an effort to consolidate power.”

A ‘rainbow of political correctness’

When Fox News Executive Vice President John Moody penned a now-deleted opinion piece titled, In Olympics, let’s focus on the winner of the race – not the race of the winner, he may or may not have been prepared for the swift backlash which followed.

Moody said, “Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger.’  It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to ‘Darker, Gayer, Different.’”

“If your goal is to win medals,” he added, “that won’t work.”

“If someone is denied a slot on a team because of prejudice, that’s one thing,” he continued.  “Complaining that every team isn’t a rainbow of political correctness defeats the purpose of sports, which is competition.”

Moody’s assertion that the Olympic games are about sports competition and not diversity horrified the LGBT world and progressives who issued a stream of hyperbolic statements.

National Center for Lesbian Rights deputy director Catherine Sakimura told The Hollywood Reporter that Moody’s commentary is “racist and homophobic sentiment demeans our U.S. Olympic athletes.”

Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, told the Reporter Moody’s comments represented “vicious anti-LGBTQ and biased rhetoric.”

“FOX News: How can we prove we’re racist and homophobic in the quickest way possible?  John Moody: Hold my beer,” said deadpool in a tweet.

Actress Mia Farrow, who played the mother of Satan’s offspring in Rosemary’s Baby,  chimed in, saying “This Fox News executive, John Moody, is DISGRACEFUL.”

Progressive messages sominate, obscuring real news out of Pyeongchang

As progressives continue to use the Winter Olympics to advance pet causes, far more pressing issues are being dealt with, invisible to politically correct social justice warriors.

While gay American athletes might think that attacking the Vice President is the most important story coming out of South Korea, Mike Pence has had to bravely face down the North Korean regime.  Somehow, as a news story, the Vice President having to contend with a couple gays with hurt feelings pales in comparison.

Before leaving South Korea, Pence said, “We’ll continue to seize every opportunity to ensure that North Korea does not use the powerful imagery and backdrop of the Olympics to paper over an appalling record of human rights and a pattern of developing weapons and conducting the kind of missile launches that are threatening our nation and threatening neighbors across the region.”

In response to the fawning coverage of Kim Jong Un’s sister, Salena Zito, a Washington Examiner reporter who has her finger on the pulse of heartland America like no other reporter, said, “I am deeply saddened by how my profession has normalized and glamorized this murderous regime. And then we wonder why no one trusts us.”  (Click to Source)

‘US mainland in our nuclear strike range’, Kim Jong-un warns in New Year’s speech

nuclear-2136244__480-1

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has declared his county a nuclear power in possession of technology capable of striking the US mainland should there be a need.

“The US mainland is in our nuclear strike zone,” Kim said in his New Year’s message which was broadcast on Chosun Central TV. “The United States will never start a war with me and our country,” and Pyongyang has “completed the creation of North Korea’s nuclear forces,” he added.

Tensions between Washington and Pyongyang reached unprecedented levels last year, as the North continued to pursue its missile and nuclear programs. Washington said all options, including a military solution, are on the table to tame North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. While the US is still on course to find a diplomatic solution to the crisis, Pyongyang has so far refused to negotiate its nuclear status.

In 2018, Kim promised to focus his country’s efforts on the “operational deployment” of nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles. At the same time, the North Korean leader said Washington“will never” be able to start a war of aggression against Pyongyang as long as the North remains a nuclear power.

Pyongyang had a busy time developing its nuclear and ballistic programs over the course of 2017, having staged 16 missile tests and conducting its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3.

In light of recent success in his nuclear endeavor, Kim called for the “mass-production” of nukes and missiles to be used as a deterrent against the US and its allies.

However, despite maintaining a belligerent posture towards the US, Kim said that the North is open to talks with S. Korea. North Korea, he said, is also willing to take part in Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics scheduled to begin in February 2018. (Click to Source)

U.S. officials increasingly taking North Korean EMP threat seriously, knowing MILLIONS of Americans could die

icbm

(Natural News) For decades, North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs were the butt of jokes inside the Pentagon and throughout the Western defense structure, known more for their duds and misses than for their successes.

But nobody in the U.S. Department of Defense or throughout NATO is laughing anymore, following a series of successful nuclear and mworld, and the United States in particular.

It was a feat that many once believed would be impossible, but not anymore.

As noted by Zero Hedge, American defense officials are not only taking the North Korean nuclear threat seriously, but they are dusting off Cold War-era plans for dealing with and surviving an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack missile tests throughout 2017 that showed increasingly sophisticated capability for North Korea to pose a serious threat to the  that Pyongyang now appears capable of launching.

The tactic is simple: If a nuclear device is exploded at just the right distance and location above the U.S., the theory is that the explosion could devastate the American power grid or, at least, enough of it that millions — and perhaps even tens of millions — would be killed outright or die in the ensuing weeks and months.

Indications that the Pentagon, U.S. power companies, and the government are taking the North Korean EMP threat seriously include:

— Very recently Congress boosted funding for the Commission to Assess the Threat to the U.S. from Electromagnetic Pulse as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). As far back as 2004, Congress voiced concerns about the potential for North Korea to become part of the ‘nuclear club’ of adversarial nations that could eventually threaten the United States with an EMP attack. “Clearly, China and Russia have this capability, and perhaps a rogue nation like North Korea,” then-U.S. Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., said at the time.

— In November, a collection of federal agencies and utility company executives started an exercise called GridEx IV, a biennial event where officials involved in the maintenance and protection of hundreds of local utilities practice dealing with various scenarios in which the North American power grid could fail. As the North Korean threat looms large, the most recent exercise took on new urgency.

As reported by Bloomberg:

This year, the event took on an added urgency given growing concern with a weapon straight out of the Cold War: an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, emanating from a nuclear blast—specifically, one delivered by a North Korean missile or satellite detonated miles above the Earth. Though GridEx IV didn’t pose this exact scenario, industry experts concede there’s no clear plan to deal with it.

That last part should really be an eye-opener because what it really says is that industry experts are not at all confident that America’s missile defenses are good enough to stop a North Korean ICBM or EMP attack.

And missile defense is the only way you deal with such attacks.

In October, Business Insider reported, experts warned in a report to Congress that a successful EMP attack could wipe out 90 percent of the American people over the course of a year. Even a single detonation would jam the entire U.S. power grid while destroying the Internet and telephone infrastructure that drive the economic and financial engines of the U.S. (and the world).

In addition, a more immediate effect would include airliners falling out of the sky “killing many of the 500,000 people flying over North America at any given moment,” Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, a former CIA analyst and report co-author, said.

Earlier this year, North Korea warned of an EMP attack. American military and infrastructure officials, experts and planners are taking Pyongyang seriously.

So should you. (Click to Source)

Another North Korean soldier defects to South Korea across the DMZ; both sides exchange gunfire

The South Korean military has released that a North Korean soldier has defected to South Korea via the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

Following the defection both North and South Koreans fired gunshots.

Yonhap, the South Korean news agency reported that the “low ranking” soldier appeared in front of a guard post around 8:00am local time during thick fog.

The “low-ranking” soldier appeared in front of a guard post on the mid-western front at around 8:04 a.m. amid thick fog, according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

After the defection, the North’s border guards approached the military demarcation line (MDL) apparently in search of the defector, a JCS official told reporters.

In response, the South’s troops fired some 20 warning shots at around 9:30 a.m., he said.

Roughly 40 minutes later, there was the sound of several gunshots from the North, but no bullets were found to have crossed the border, he added.

The soldier ran from his guard post in the DMZ where both sides face each other from across the line that divides the North from the South.

More than 30,000 North Koreans have defected to the South, but it’s unusual for soldiers to flee across the so-called DMZ, a 2.5-mile wide, 150-mile-long buffer zone lined with barbed wire and dotted with landmines.

The DMZ is one of the most heavily guarded pieces of land in the world due to the extreme tensions created by the volatile and aggressive North Korean government.

On November 13th, a North Korean soldier was shot by his comrades as he defected to the South in an extremely rare crossing via the truce village in the Demilitarized Zone.

The November defection came less than a week after President Donald Trump traveled to South Korea to pledge solidarity with the longtime U.S. ally amid soaring tensions over the growing nuclear and missile threat from the North.

The soldier fled from his guard post in the jointly controlled area where the two sides face each other across the line that divides the peninsula, according to South Korea’s military.

Other North Korean forces opened fire, wounding the soldier as he advanced toward the South Korean side’s reception building known as the Freedom House, an official said, reading a statement from the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

It’s rarer for them to leave their posts in the Joint Security Area, which is controlled on the southern side by the U.S.-led United Nations Command. South Korea’s Unification Ministry, which oversees defectors, said the last time it happened was in 2007.

The North Korean soldier, who was shot in the shoulder and elbow, was airlifted to a hospital by a United Nations Command helicopter, another military official said, speaking on condition of anonymity in exchange for providing the details. (Click to Source)

Intelligence insider says WAR with North Korea likely within weeks: This could be your final prepper warning

(Natural News) If you’ve been putting off buying solar-powered gear, storable foods, survival equipment and extra water, now might be a good time to begin stocking up.

That’s because an intelligence insider says he’s been told by no less than CIA Director Mike Pompeo himself that war with North Korea is very likely within the first three months of 2018.

Insider James Rickards, who has worked with the U.S. intelligence community for decades, is an expert in escalation scenarios and end games. Writing in The Daily Reckoning, he said that the geopolitical situation with North Korea will soon come to a head.

Rather than the stock market, bitcoin, gold and Federal Reserve interest rate decisions, Rickards said that the most pressing global concern for the U.S. and other great powers is the escalating situation on the Korean peninsula.

“The most important financial or geopolitical issue in the world today is a coming war between the U.S. and North Korea, probably in the next twelve weeks,” he wrote.

“How can I be so sure about the timing? The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency told me,” he continued.

Rickards said that Pompeo was speaking to a private gathering in Washington, D.C., Oct. 20, when he told a small think tank group that it would not be prudent to assume that North Korea needs more than “five months” to build and deploy a reliable arsenal of nuclear-tipped ICBMs, which could be used to strike a number of American cities and kill millions of people.

“Five months from October 20, 2017 is March 20, 2018,” Rickards wrote. “That’s an outside date but the war will likely begin before then.”

The time frame creates “an element of surprise” that Pyongyang could not anticipate while avoiding a quicker-than-expected deployment of North Korea’s nuclear weapons by leader Kim Jong-un.

And while the U.S., Russia and, to a far lesser extent China and India, lived through the Cold War under the MAD (mutually assured destruction) principle, that doesn’t apply with North Korea. Rickards said that President Trump’s national security advisor, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, who was at the same conclave, said that the White House finds the concept of North Korea having nuclear capability “unacceptable.”

So, the goal is and always has been to stop Pyongyang from developing a viable nuclear threat in the first place, instead of learning to live with it and relying on a mutual-destruction threat that Kim may not be as concerned about.

“The reasons for this are many,” Rickards wrote. “None of the other nuclear-armed powers ever threatened to attack the United States unless attacked first.

“North Korea has threatened to attack and destroy the U.S. many times,” he continued. “The best approach for dealing with threats from dictators is to take them at their word.”

There is additional evidence that Rickards may be right.

As The National Sentinel reported last week, the Marine Corps’ top commander, Gen. Robert Neller, warned a small group of Marines in Norway that a “big-ass fight” is on the horizon.

“I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming … ,” Neller said. “You’re in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence.”

He was thought to be referring to Russia, given that the personnel he was addressing were conducting military exercises in a European country. But they could also be construed to mean a war anywhere in the world.

In fact, he referenced “the Pacific region,” an area of the globe that could be a reference to China — North Korea — or both.

His comments were followed by others from Defense Secretary James Mattis, who said late last week that “storm clouds are gathering” over the Korean peninsula.

Added Rickards, “When Kim Jong Un says he will attack the United States with nuclear weapons, it is reckless to believe otherwise.”

North Korea has threatened an EMP attack in the past as well, which would devastate the U.S. power grid. (Click to Source)
