    The country’s women ice hockey team launched an attack on the government following its decision to raise the team’s roster from 23 to more than 30 to include athletes from the hermit kingdom. "Taking roster spots from South Korean athletes who have put so much effort for the Olympics - a dream stage for all South Korean athletes - for the North Koreans is not fair at all." "We are utterly speechless that the government just picked us out of blue and asked us to play with total strangers at the Olympics.” A survey released by the office of the...
  • Shattuck: Picture of deal takes shape in art of ‘button’ tweeting

    It’s becoming clear that there really is an art of the deal, and President Trump is using it to get results on the Korean Peninsula. Let’s work in reverse. By now you know that yesterday, when a reporter asked the president if he’d talk on the phone with Kim Jong Un, he answered, “I always believe in talking.” Clearly, that depends on what happens this week, when Kim’s regime will hold high-level talks inside the DMZ with South Korea — thanks to Trump. Those talks are in part a result of the U.S. and Republic of Korea pushing back the...
  • Morning Joe Goes Crazy Over Trump ‘Bigger Button’ Tweet: “Demented, Deranged, Narcissistic Disorder”

    New Year’s Eve fireworks are over, but things were still exploding on the Morning Joe set today. Namely, the collective heads of the panel members. An episode of mass hysteria broke out over President Trump’s tweet that warned Kim Jong Un, in response to his threat, that Trump has a “much bigger and more powerful” button than Kim’s, and that “my button works.” First up was Mike Barnicle, who fretted over Trump’s “stability.” Next was John Heilemann, describing Trump as “demented and deranged.” Not to be outdone, Jon Meacham diagnosed Trump with a “narcissistic disorder,” while calling for an “intervention“—a...

    New Years is a time for fresh starts, optimistic attitudes and positive thinking, so what say we kick off the year with some good news out of North Korea? Naw… I’m just kidding. Things are still a mess over there. But during his annual address to welcome in 2018 (given from some undisclosed, bunker location), Kim Jong-un began striking a new tone. And while it’s not precisely conciliatory in nature, he at least sounds like he’s pretending to be interested in normalizing relations with the international community. In fact, he’s even talking about sending a delegation to the Olympic Games,...

    Kim Jong-un says he has a ‘nuclear launch button’ on his desk in threat to America KIM Jong-un has brought in the new year with an alarming escalation in his threats against the rest of the world. During a televised New Year’s Day speech, the dictator said the US would never be able to start a war with the rogue nation after it had developed the ability to hit all of the American mainland with its nuclear weapons. “The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk. This is...

    The tensions between the US and North Korea are good for business for the Australian impersonator, and he recently starred as a love-struck Kim in Russian group Little Big’s LollyBomb videoIn a world ever-ready to see the funny side of North Korea’s grim regime, Hong Kong’s most famous Kim Jong-un lookalike is watching his star rise. The resemblance is uncanny: with his distinctive shaved haircut and round chin, the Hong-Kong born Australian known only as “Howard” is a dead ringer for the hermit kingdom’s Dear Leader. This week, he starred in a music video for the Russian rave-pop group Little...

    North Korea is beginning tests on mounting anthrax onto intercontinental ballistic missiles that would strike the U.S., a report said on Wednesday just two days after the White House’s U.S. National Security Strategy stated Kim Jong Un is pursuing chemical and biological weapons. The Hermit Kingdom is beginning experiments to test out if anthrax can endure immense heat and pressure it will have to endure when loaded into an ICBM and launched toward the earth’s atmosphere, Japan’s Asahi newspaper reported, citing an unidentified person connected to South Korea’s intelligence services. “North Korea has started experiments such as heat and pressure...

    Wednesday on “The Late Show,” NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman opened up about his visits with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, saying the dictator has “changed” and does not want war. “He said, ‘I don’t want war,'” Rodman recalled from one of his recent visits with Kim Jong-un. “He sounds like he’s more of a kid than anything,” he added. “I think he really wants to change his culture, but I think he’s forced to be in this position because every time I go over there he’s changed so much for the people. And people don’t see that.”

Rodman, who has met with Kim on multiple occasions and appeared on Trump"s "Celebrity Apprentice" show, Rodman told Agence France-Presse while in China that the two leaders exhibit similarities in how "they love control." The former athlete also said that the two are engaging in harmless "entertainment" when threatening nuclear warfare and "ain't nobody got no finger on the button."

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    North Koreans who defected but once lived near a nuclear testing site in the rogue nation now believe they are experiencing the dangerous effects of exposure to harmful radiation — and it's triggered severe health problems, according to a report published Sunday. "So many people died we began calling it 'ghost disease,'" Lee Jeong Hwa, who in 2010 escaped her home in Kilju County where the nuclear testing site Punggye-ri is located, told NBC News. "We thought we were dying because we were poor and we ate badly. Now we know it was the radiation." Lee isn’t the only defector...

    Today as tensions between North Korea and the U.S. reach heights not seen since the 1950s, it is easy to forget that northern Korea used to be one of the Asian strongholds of Protestant Christianity. As Atlas Obscura recently explained, the city of Pyongyang became known to missionaries as the “Jerusalem of the East.” The city had great institutional strength for Protestantism, including Union Christian Hospital, Union Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and Union Christian College, the first four-year college anywhere in Korea. One hundred ten years ago, Pyongyang saw the outbreak of a massive revival, the high point of the season...

The visit came after a public rally and fireworks in Pyongyang to celebrate the launch of the Hwasong-15 ICBM, in violation of international sanctions. At the Amnokgang...

    Kim Jong-Un fired off another rocket last night. It got close to Japan, supposedly. Friends, neighbors, and even political rivals have called me, terrified about where this military build-up is headed. Trump has mobilized a greater show of force in the Pacific rim. Hawaii is under red alert, prepared for a nuclear attack at any moment. But as for me, guess what? I don’t care. I may live on the Western rim, but I have survived along the San Andreas Fault all my life, and despite earthquakes, terrors, wars, rumors of wars (and even the LA riots), I am not...

Citizens have been banned from participating in “any gatherings related to drinking, singing and other entertainment,” Yonhap News Agency reported Monday. The North Korean regime is also “strengthening control of outside information.”

    Like many of her fellow citizens, the leader of South Korea’s ruling party was unhappy with President Trump’s threats to destroy nuclear-armed North Korea. But she now says Mr. Trump’s visit this month appears to have made him appreciate more fully the need to peacefully resolve the crisis. In an interview, the leader, Choo Mi-ae, the chairwoman of the liberal Democratic Party of South Korea and the most prominent woman in the National Assembly, said Mr. Trump’s visit had “actually led to an improvement in our bilateral relations.” Mr. Trump, she said, had now seen for himself that 25 million...

    KIM JONG UN MAY HAVE CAUSED A PARASITIC WORM EPIDEMIC IN NORTH KOREA BY MAKING FARMERS SPREAD HUMAN FAECES ON THEIR CROPS The prevalence of parasitic worms causing health problems in North Korea may be the result of a personal intervention by Kim Jong Un, who urged farmers to spread human excrement on their fields to fertilize crops. The hermit nation’s leader issued an instruction to farmers in 2014 telling them to use human faeces with animal waste and organic compost on their fields. With a lack of livestock to provide animal fertilizer, agriculturists poured the human excrement, also known...
