If Fat Boy is dead, then progressives celebrating Kim Yo Jong as a positive step forward for women in leadership is about as sick as you can get. This is how the left have completely ruined and distorted the feminist movement.
This doesn’t help anybody. But these idiots are like are like animals driven by instinct, not reason. No, I take that back; animals do not deserve to be maligned like that. These punks most resemble their father, Satan.
What many don’t know is that DC is half slum.
Lord help us to Make America Great Again!
If we could just get the US media to do the same, that’d be great.
From NY Post: Nix the nuclear warheads, cue the doves. The North Korean government is erasing much of its anti-U.S. propaganda following dictator Kim Jong-un’s forays onto the world stage.
Gone are the posters depicting the U.S. as a “rotten, diseased, pirate nation” and promising “merciless revenge” on American forces for an imagined attack on the totalitarian country.
In their place are cheery messages touting praising the prospects for Korean reunification and the declaration Kim signed in April with South Korean President Moon Jae-in promising “lasting peace,” according to reports.
Still the most isolated country in the world, very few North Koreans have access to news and information from the outside world. So state propaganda plays a huge role in shaping their views.
Murals, banners and posters displayed throughout the capital, Pyongyang, have for decades depicted the U.S. as a brutal, imperialist aggressor hell-bent on destroying the North Korean regime. South Korea and Japan were also frequently targeted as willing allies of the U.S.
But things started to take an Orwellian turn in the run-up to Kim’s June 12 summit with President Donald Trump, with the old posters vanishing since then.
“All the anti-American posters I usually see around Kim Il-sung Square and at shops, they’ve all just gone,” Rowan Beard, a tour manager at Young Pioneer Tours, told Reuters. “In five years working in North Korea, I’ve never seen them completely disappear before.”
Infamous posters and postcards showing North Korean missiles on their way to Washington are a thing of the past. Also removed are the anti-American trinkets that used to be sold to tourists as souvenirs. In their place are items showing themes of Korean reunification.
The change extends to the country’s government-controlled media. News reports that once depicted the U.S. as hostile, and its involvement in places like Syria as proof of imperialism, are no longer critical. The Financial Times said the main newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, hasn’t featured a direct attack on Trump since March, when he agreed to meet with Kim.
The paper was filled with pictures of the two together at the summit, and is no longer reporting anti-U.S. news. Other international events, like Kim’s visit last week to China, are being reported right away, rather than after a waiting period, and in more neutral language.
“This is fascinating,” Peter Ward, North Korea expert and writer for NKNews, told the BBC. “Generally speaking, neutral or positive coverage is normally reserved for countries that Pyongyang has friendly relations with.”
In one sign that relations are improving, the U.S. military said it positioned at least 100 wooden coffins at the border of North and South Korea on Saturday to prepare for the return of the remains of U.S. service members missing since the Korean War.
While the preparation suggests that the repatriation could happen soon, details about timing and location remain unclear. Kim agreed to return the remains during the June 12 summit.
The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency says 7,697 Americans are unaccounted for from the 1950-1953 war. About 5,300 of those are believed to be in North Korean territory. Roughly 400 remains have been recovered from North Korea since 1990.
North Korea plans to create a large beach resort in one of the country’s port cities, a knock-off of a Spanish getaway that’s a hotspot for drinking tourists, a report said.
The beach resort, planned to be built in Wonsan, will mimick the Spanish city of Benidorm, The Telegraph reported. The secretive regime became infatuated with Benidorm after 20 North Korean officials took a fact-finding trip to the beach resort and were “amazed by the dimensions” of the towers and holiday parks, a spokesman for the North Korean embassy in Madrid said…
The military nightmare that is actively threatening all its neighbors now has plans for a relaxed ocean getaway. Perhaps they see this as a way of persuading their kidnapping victims pay their own airfare into captivity.

MASIK PASS, North Korea — To view the humbling limits of round after round of international sanctions against North Korea, come to Masik Pass. It isn’t a secret military facility where Kim Jong Un’s best and brightest are hard at work developing nuclear warheads and long-range missiles.
It’s a ski resort.

North Korea is hoping to get people to book vacations to their country, and to feel encouraged to let loose and party and drink with complete abandon. Will they have Ibiza styled disco parties? Will Jimmy Buffet add North Korea to his yearly Coral Reefer Band tour?
Let’s ask Otto Warmbier what he thinks.
What’s that? Oh… sorry.
Well it seems that Otto is in no condition to comment.
Kim Jong-nam was the eldest son of the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, who died in 2011 and who himself had succeeded his father Kim Il-sung in the bizarre hereditary dynasty of communist North Korea.
Jong-nam had been the heir apparent to his father until he fell out of favor in 2001 after a failed attempt to visit Tokyo Disneyland by entering Japan with a false passport. Jong-nam was exiled from North Korea in 2003, becoming an occasional critic of his family’s regime and an advocate for reform, while he lived a life of comfort and gambling on the island of Macao as his countrymen died from starvation. Jong-nam’s younger paternal half-brother, the ruthless Kim Jong-un, was named heir apparent and became leader after Jong-il’s death in 2011.
On February 13, 2017, Kim Jong-nam was assassinated via poison by two women at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia.
Japan’s Fuji TV obtained and aired the chilling closed-circuit security footage of the assassination.
The footage begins with Kim — carrying a black backpack over his right shoulder and dressed in light-blue jeans, a sport coat and a cap — arriving alone at the airport’s crowded departures hall shortly before 9 a.m. on Feb. 13. Police said he had been in Malaysia for about a week, and had intended to take a 10:50 a.m. AirAsia flight back to his home in Macau.
He stops to look up at the flight schedules, then walks to a nearby self-check-in kiosk.
The next scene is blurry, showing two women approaching Kim. One woman, identified by police to be Siti Aisyah, 25, an Indonesian masseuse at a spa in Kuala Lumpur, approaches Kim on the left and catches his attention. The second woman, in white top, identified by police to be a Vietnamese named Doan Thi Huong, 28, attacks Kim from behind, wrapping both arms around his head and holding a cloth over his face.
Huong’s contact with Kim lasted 2.33 seconds, according a timer added to the video compilation. The two women quickly walk away in opposite directions. Kim’s backpack slips off from his shoulder and he stumbles backward. He stands motionless for several seconds.
Kuala Lumpur police told The Wall Street Journal that the video of the assault is blurry because a camera closer to the scene wasn’t working. How convenient. /sarc
A subsequent clip, of better quality from a different camera, shows Kim walking quickly to the nearby customer-service desk. There he tells an airport employee that two women had just wiped a wet cloth on his face, and that he feels dizzy. The airport worker escorts him out to the hallway where Kim speaks animatedly with the police and repeatedly motions toward his face. A police officer and an airport employee escort Kim, now moving less steadily, to a small, glass-fronted airport medical clinic.
An unspecified amount of time passes. The next clip shows Kim on a stretcher at the clinic, being moved. Police said he had a seizure. Kim died en route to Putrajaya Hospital.
Here’s a video with a CGI reenactment of the assassination:
According to Zerohedge, Malaysia’s police said they believe Kim was poisoned during the assault, but are awaiting confirmation from autopsy results. Police arrested the two assailants, Aisyah and Huong, and detained them for a week. Neither however has been charged. Police also arrested a North Korean man and a Malaysian man suspected of being involved in the assault, and say they are searching for others, including several North Korean men.
South Korea Defense Ministry spokesman Jeong Joon-hee said Pyongyang is behind the death: “The government assumes that North Korea’s regime is behind the incident.”
Sony Pictures Entertainment has reversed its prior decision to pull the movie The Interview, an action comedy about two American journalists (played by Seth Rogen and James Franco) who wrangled an interview with North Korea’s ruthless savage dictator Kim Jong Un, then assassinated Kim.
Hackers who call themselves “Guardians of the Peace,” determined by federal investigators to be associated with the North Korea government, had hacked into Sony’s computers and leaked a trove of embarrassing emails. Then the hackers threatened to to carry out terrorist attacks against cinemas that screen The Interview, which originally was scheduled for release on December 25.
On Dec. 17, Sony buckled under pressure and took the unprecedented step of canceling the Dec. 25 release of the The Interview.
Obama and the F.B.I. accused North Korea of targeting Sony and pledged a “proportional response” just hours before North Korea’s Internet went dark without explanation.
But now Sony has reversed its decision.
The movie is being screened today in independent theaters across the United States. Beginning yesterday at 10 a.m. PT, the movie can also be downloaded from from Google Play, YouTube Movies, Xbox Video and the website SeetheInterview.com for $5.99, or $14.99 for an HD version.
Here’s a preview:
Sony’s reversal has led InfoWars to wonder if the whole thing is a marketing scam — “a cynical PR campaign from the start.”
Indeed, the New York Times reports:
A number of private security researchers are increasingly voicing doubts that the hack of Sony‘s computer systems was the work of North Korea…with some even likening the government’s claims to those of the Bush administration in the build-up to the Iraq war.
Fueling their suspicions is the fact that the [Obama] government based its findings, in large part, on evidence that it will not release, citing the ‘need to protect sensitive sources and methods.’ […]
“Essentially, we are being left in a position where we are expected to just take agency promises at face value,” Marc Rogers, a security researcher at CloudFlare, the mobile security company, wrote in a post Wednesday. “In the current climate, that is a big ask.”
Mr. Rogers, who doubles as the director of security operations for DefCon, an annual hacker convention, and others like Bruce Schneier, a prominent cryptographer and blogger, have been mining the meager evidence that has been publicly circulated, and argue that it is hardly conclusive.
For one, skeptics note that the few malware samples they have studied indicate the hackers routed their attack through computers all over the world. One of those computers, in Bolivia, had been used by the same group to hack targets in South Korea. But that computer, as well as others in Poland, Italy, Thailand, Singapore, Cyprus and the United States, were all freely available to anyone to use, which opens the list of suspects to anyone with an Internet connection and basic hacking skills.
For another, Sony’s attackers constructed their malware on computers configured with Korean language settings, but skeptics note that those settings could have been reset to deflect blame. They also note the attackers used commercial software wiping tools that could have been purchased by anyone.
They also point out that whoever attacked Sony had a keen understanding of its computer systems — the names of company servers and passwords were all hard-coded into the malware — suggesting the hackers were inside Sony before they launched their attack. Or it could even have been an inside job. […]
On Wednesday, one alternate theory emerged. Computational linguists at Taia Global, a cybersecurity consultancy, performed a linguistic analysis of the hackers’ online messages — which were all written in imperfect English — and concluded that based on translation errors and phrasing, the attackers are more likely to be Russian speakers than Korean speakers.
Such linguistic analysis is hardly foolproof. But the practice, known as stylometry, has been used to contest the authors behind some of history’s most disputed documents, from Shakespearean sonnets to the Federalist Papers.
[…] other private security researchers say their own research backs up the government’s claims. CrowdStrike, a California security firm that has been tracking the same group that attacked Sony since 2006, believes they are located in North Korea and have been hacking targets in South Korea for years.
But without more proof, skeptics are unlikely to simply demur to F.B.I. claims. “In the post-Watergate post-Snowden world, the USG can no longer simply say ‘trust us’,” Paul Rosenzweig, theDepartment of Homeland Security’s former deputy assistant secretary for policy, wrote on the Lawfare blog Wednesday. “Not with the U.S. public and not with other countries. Though the skepticism may not be warranted, it is real.”
In real life, Kim Jong Un, the obese grandson and son of North Korea’s previous dictators, Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, lives a life of luxury and gluttony while his subjects starve to death. Kim the 3rd reportedly had his own uncle killed and fed to dogs.
Evidence is mounting that this Sony “hack” is another Obama admin. false flag.

2. The movie is panned by critics: The Interview received only an average 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
