Flight of the Hwasong-14

Hwasong-14 & Kim Jong UN


America can no longer afford to hurl ineffective economic sanctions at North Korea, that are too often violated by nations like China, while North Korea and its malevolent dictator, Kim Jong Un, prepare to let nuclear armed missiles fly at their leisure. The United States government and President Donald Trump must give some hard, serious and real consideration on striking at the heart of Pyongyang North Korea, Kim Jong Un’s regime and all North Korean missile launch sites and nuclear facilities, since placing our country’s fate in the hands of a murderous and unstable dictator, who has murdered senior officials and family members on a whim, and a regime capable of reckless behavior would be beyond egregious and a monumental mistake.


On July 4th 2017, North Korea conducted a missile test of the Hwasong-14 that was a success in many ways. There is little reason to question North Korea’s claim that the missile reached an altitude of over 1700 miles and hit a target 580 miles away, in light of the fact that North Korea placed two satellites in space in 2012. This demonstrated that, at a lower altitude and straighter trajectory, Anchorage Alaska, Guam, Hawaii, Japan and even Queensland Australia are within range of Pyongyang’s nuclear missiles, once it perfects the process of miniaturizing the nuclear warheads. Washington was also served a warning.


An intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launched from North Korea would hit Los Angeles within thirty minutes. Riki Ellison, chairman of the nonprofit Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, asserts that North Korea already has miniaturized warheads capable of delivering 20 kilotons of destruction, similar to the bomb detonated over Nagasaki during WWII, and many other experts predict that Kim Jong Un will have the capability to hit America’s West Coast before President Trump completes his first term.


A nuclear armed and unpredictable rogue state, North Korea will not be deterred along similar lines as the former Soviet Union and China have been. They have less to lose than any previous nuclear power, and Pyongyang will most certainly attempt nuclear blackmail at best. In the worst case scenario, Pyongyang will give nukes to our Islamic enemies and third party terrorists, to insert in our harbors and cities.


North Korea has pursued nuclear weapons, since the day it acquired nuclear technology from the Soviet Union in the 1950s. It is too close to success to stop. And besides, Kim Jong Un’s survival depends on a viable nuclear weapons system.


According to Sue Mi Terry, a former CIA analyst, who met with North Koreans and a group of Western experts last month in Sweden, at the Asia Society, “The North Koreans emphasize over and over, denuclearization is completely off the table … they say it’s not negotiable.”


Last month, Michael Auslin, from the Hoover Institute, bluntly told a group of journalists in Washington, “Negotiations won’t work“.


This rogue nation knows no bounds, when it comes to committing acts of evil. Not only did they slowly murder [HERE and HERE] Otto Warmbier, a U.S. citizen and college student, over an eighteen month period, the Kim Family regime has committed numerous flagrant violations of the July 7th 1953 Korean War Armistice. This regime killed thirty-one U.S. Airmen, when it shot them down in South Korean airspace in 1969, and thirty-five North Korean soldiers hacked U.S. Captain Arthur Bonifas and First Lieutenant Mark Barrett to death in 1976, near the Demilitarized Zone. Also, in 1968, this regime captured the USS Pueblo in international waters and held 82 Navy crewmen for eleven months. And North Korea has never met with any meaningful consequences for their acts of war.


North Korea was already blatantly defiant and violently aggressive without nukes and a missile delivery system. Just imagine how far Kim Jong Un will go, once he has a fully operational nuclear arsenal at his fingertips.


Does anyone really believe a nuclear armed North Korea won’t exact a heavy price from the free world?


An April 15th 2017 editorial in the Chinese Communist newspaper, the ‘Global Times, essentially stated that Beijing would not militarily intervene, if Washington conducts a preemptive strike against North Korean nuclear facilities. However, China won’t accept a non-communist regime in North Korea or U.S. troops crossing the 38th Parallel. If the U.S. strikes the Kim regime, China would likely focus on instituting a pro-China regime and possibly seizing North Korea’s missile and nuclear sites, rather than a war with U.S.-South Korea joint military forces.


The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is less than forty miles from Seoul’s 25 million inhabitants and lined with 8,000 pieces of North Korean artillery and rocket launchers. Within the first hour of any renewed conventional war between the two Koreas, North Korea has the ability to unleash the equivalent of 300,000 tons of TNT on Seoul, possibly killing as many as 100,000 people. For this reason, during a May 2017 press conference, Secretary of Defense James Mattis stated, “If this goes to a military solution, it’s going to be tragic on an unbelievable scale”.


Seoul has much to lose, however, any military move against North Korea doesn’t necessarily have to be the tragedy some U.S. officials have suggested it would be. And while America may be bound by treaty to defend South Korea, our leaders and President Trump cannot allow South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s conciliatory policy towards North Korea to place the U.S. in the untenable position of accepting a capable nuclear armed North Korea and any consequences that follow.


On Wednesday, the Fifth of July, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the U.N. Security Council that our “considerable military forces” were an option. Continuing, Nikki Haley stated, “We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to go in that direction”.


A preemptive strike is not a good option, and nobody assumes it would be easy. People will die on both sides, but North Korea’s nuclear threat is one that must be destroyed, before it grows too much stronger, or exponentially more lives will be lost in its wake years hence. America can do it without near the tragic results for Seoul that Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis states, if the U.S. will resolve to drop tactical nukes and MOABs on the nuclear facilities, the launch sites at Sohae and Tonghae [aka Donghae] and the eight thousand pieces of artillery and military units along the Demilitarized Zone simultaneously.


One should note that prior to the signing of the Armistice in 1953 and the cease-fire that followed, President Dwight D. Eisenhower considered using nukes against North Korea to end the war. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles agreed that the United States should not shrink from using nuclear weapons, especially if their use prevented a greater loss of life over time, but he did favor limited use.


Kim Jong Un arrogantly fired Hwasong-14 on America’s Independence Day, in utter contempt of any objections from either China or the Free World. America answered with U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers and South Korean and Japanese jet fighters joint flights over the Korean Peninsula on July 7th 2017, the sixty-fourth anniversary of the signing of the Korean War Armistice.


Is it not apparent to the world that America is one of the last nations standing between tyrants and freedom?


War should never be a first, second or even third choice. The Land of the Free, America cannot and must not tolerate a nation that enslaves and murders its own people and citizens from other nations. The Home of the Brave, America cannot and must not lapse into a fool-hardy and cowardly repose in the face of a fat boy tyrant, who called the Hwasong-14 test a “gift to the American bastards”. America must not find Herself firing off more sanctions on the day Kim Jong Un detonates a bright glowing nuke over one of our cities. Stopping North Korea requires war.

Time is Running Out to Stop Obama’s Bad Deal with Iran!

Obama, Rouhani & Iran Nukes


President Obama has announced that his 6 month plan to ease sanctions and give cash to Iran will commence January 20th!! Although this deal was revealed by Secretary of State John Kerry at the end of last year, this is the first time Obama has officially stated when this deal would take effect.

Obama’s plan will give over $7 BILLION TO IRAN in cash and repeal years of sanctions. The administration claims that in exchange Iran will promise to halt their nuclear weapons program but it’s unclear when or how that will happen or how this will be verified.

Many Senators aren’t buying into Obama’s scheme, even ones in his own party! A bipartisan coalition of 59 Senators (Republicans AND Democrats) have signed up to co-sponsor legislation to put new sanctions on Iran and hold their feet to the fire!

SIGN our petition in SUPPORT of these important sanctions on Iran! We have precious little time left to stop Obama’s BAD DEAL before he starts handing billions of dollars in cash to one of the most dangerous rogue states in history!

SIGN OUR PETITION and tell your Senators to co-sponsor this bill and encourage them to keep up the fight and to bring this important bill to a vote!

Please sign the petition and use our online system to electronically send letters your state’s Senators urging them to join this effort! It’s completely free, takes just minutes, and helps the cause!

Just as importantly, forward this email to others NOW.

Excerpt from the Petition


President Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry are trying to rush America into a new deal cut with the Iranian radicals.

Iran has consistently lied to the international community for over a decade and hid their nuclear program from UN inspectors! Their promises to stop enriching weapons grade uranium cannot be trusted because it cannot be verified. For years, one after another attempt to assess the Iranian nuclear program have failed due to Iran’s lack of cooperation.

In return for a promise of future talks and future negotiation, Kerry gave up $7 billion in US dollars, easing sanctions, and giving Iran a pass to continue enriching uranium until a long term deal can be hammered out. It’s a BAD DEAL which gets America nothing and essentially gives Iran a path to develop nukes.

We do not trust them to keep their word!

ACTION ALERT! Protect America from the Iranian Threat!

From ACT for America


There is no issue more vital to America’s national security today than the threat posed by Iran:

• Iran has a nuclear weapons program in which it is enriching uranium in defiance of United Nations resolutions and in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

• Iran has long been acknowledged by the US State Department as the world’s most active terrorist-sponsoring nation, providing support, training, financing and arms to multiple Jihadist organizations, including Hezbollah, HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, and even Al Qaeda.

• Iran was implicated in providing arms to insurgents in Iraq who were battling American troops and has also been identified by US military intelligence as providing arms and assistance to the Taliban forces fighting against US troops in Afghanistan today.

Unfortunately, recent moves by the Obama administration have gone in the direction of easing the economic pressure on Iran by reducing sanctions.

This is a major mistake that will only serve to enrich the terrorist-sponsoring Ayatollahs in Tehran.

The Iranian regime has a long history of dishonesty. Why should America trust the ayatollahs now?

Further, why should we embolden a nation that has clearly articulated its desire to destroy Israel, our closest democratic ally in the Middle East? We should stand by Israel at all times, and the idea of any relaxed sanctions against the Iranian regime, be they temporary or permanent, should be considered an “historic mistake,” as Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu has described them.

Delaying, relaxing, or removing strong sanctions against the Iranian regime will continue the growing perception that the U.S. has become a paper tiger and, further, it will place our most important ally in the Middle East, Israel, in grave danger.

That is exactly where you, ACT! for America’s 270,000-strong members and supporters come in! You have the power to let our elected officials know that national security is important to taxpayers.

Elected officials on the state and federal level commonly tell us that they frequently hear from constituents on “pocketbook” issues but seldom hear from them on security issues, such as the threat of terrorism and nuclear proliferation.

Now is the time to tell your elected representatives in Congress that you want them to remain vigilant to the Iranian threat. Iran must not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons, and Iran must continue to pay a price for their sponsorship of Jihadist terrorism.

Will you help us today on this issue by taking the important actions noted below?

** Two Important Action Items **

Please contact your U.S. legislators TODAY to express support for the two pieces of legislation noted below. Further, please pass this request on to everyone you know.


1.  H. Res. 445, by Rep. Peter Roskam, R-IL/6th (NOTE: This is different from H.R. 445)
