Do you LOVE America?


    New satellite images show North Korea apparently dismantling their main missile engine test site. An American research group hypothesized Monday that this is a sign that Pyongyang is fulfilling the promises North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made to President Donald Trump.

    At the summit in Singapore last month, Kim Jong-un vowed to president Trump that he would denuclearize sending the left-leaning mainstream media into a frenzy, well, those who chose to report on the promise anyway. It now appears that Kim has taken some big steps toward making good on his promise to Trump, according to a report by Fox News.

    According to an analysis of satellite imagery of the location by the North Korea-focused 38 North website, between July 20 and 22, the North Korean government appeared to be dismantling the Sohae launch site. Most notably, these deconstructions include the rail-mounted processing building where space launch vehicles are prepared before moving them to the launch pad, and the nearby rocket engine test stand which is used to develop liquid-fuel engines for ballistic missiles and space launch vehicles.

    This comes not long after there were reports that North Korea was enhancing and upgrading parts of their nuclear test facility. According to the newest satellite imagery, however, some facilities on the site were either razed or taken apart completely.

    Commercial satellite imagery of the launch pad from July 20 shows that the rail-mounted processing/transfer structure has been moved to the middle of the pad, exposing the underground rail transfer point—one of the few times it has been seen in this location. The roof and supporting structure have been partially removed and numerous vehicles are present—including a large construction crane. An image from two days later shows the continued presence of the crane and vehicles. Considerable progress has been made in dismantling the rail-mounted processing/transfer structure. One corner has been completely dismantled and the parts can be seen lying on the ground. In both images the two fuel/oxidizer bunkers, main processing building and gantry tower remain untouched. –38 North

    “Since these facilities are believed to have played an important role in the development of technologies for the North’s intercontinental ballistic missile program, these efforts represent a significant confidence-building measure on the part of North Korea,” analyst Joseph Bermudez wrote in the 38 North report. Bermudez said the satellite images indicate that Pyongyang took “an important first step toward fulfilling a commitment made by Kim Jong-un.”

      1. I have spent a considerable amount of time, over the last 5 years, studying Global Warming and the disaster coming. I have most likely watched 1,000+ YouTUbe videos from every angle you can imagine (3-4 per day, for 5 years X 365 days = 5,475+ lectures).

        What was most SHOCKING and scary as hell, was when I found this really weird old man, named John Casey, who had a real BS, uneducated, unproven, crazy idea that the world was NOT Warming, but, get this, Cooling?

        The fool wrote a few books: Cold Sun, Dark Winter, and Upheaval….all comic book, doom and gloom, end of the world fluff………….maybe…………what if?…………

        So, since I was drunk that night and sitting naked eating Cheetos, I decided to watch the Old White Man (therefore he must also be a Racist)…………………………………………………………………………………..Now I know why North Korea is so desperate to make up with the US. They are about to starve in the next year, or two. Same with China. The coming Grand Solar Minimum, with increase Cosmic Ray flux is going to devastate their growing regions and throw 1+ Billion Asians into hideous Starvation.

        Along with the ionization of the atmospheric particulates, by these Cosmic Rays, this will result in more cloud coverage, lower atmospheric temperature, increased rain (flooding worldwide) and extreme episodes of Hail, world wide……….sound familiar?

        AND the magma absorption of neutrinos and such, which results in expansion of magma, will result in VEI-5+ eruptions (Krakatoa, etc.) as have occurred during ALL past Solar Minimums…thus cooling the Earth even more…and an increase in Earthquakes due to the same inner Earth reactions. This happened in 535 AD, 1235 AD, 1812, 1883………

        Canada will lose the ability to grow wheat. There is only going to be ONE Nation that can supply the wheat, corn, soy, pigs, etc to China & North Korea….and that is AMERICA.

        OH, it seems one of the FIRST things North and South Korea are working on is their rail systems. WHY? North Korea seems to be in a very big hurry to fix their railroad disaster and it has TOP priority. Now why would that be?

        • Centurion, very interesting thesis. If Korea and China’s growing regions are to be devastated by increased cosmic ray flux, why would America’s growing region (same latitude, roughly)be exempt from the same phenomenon?

          • Good question.

            Each “area” of the world is not just dependent on Latitude and Longitude. They differ, sometimes greatly, by every other “weather” variable you can think of.

            We have a huge land mass with variable arable land, North and South. So, while a 1-2 degree drop in “world” temp will obliterate Canadian Wheat, we can move our crop lines South.

            Also, just a few weeks ago, I drove extensively through South Alabama and Georgia and showed my kids the HUGE amount of land that can be put into production. Unbelievable unfarmed land.

            China doesn’t have available land, and has 3 times our population.

            North Korea is sitting in a awful place, according to the projections of those who study this. According to what THEY say (not me) China’s wheat area will go “off line”, and so will N. Korea. China does not want 22 million starving people crossing their borders.

            Watch every video with the name “JOHN CASEY” in it, as a start. (Some have awful audio, some don’t).

            • Centurion, so you were watching this weird old man and his uneducated, unproven, and crazy idea of what amounts to global cooling. But you were drunk, sitting naked and eating Cheetos?
              There’s some things that really need not be shared. Are you john casey? You must lead a very lonely life

              • Good God, can’t some of you see a “joke” when it is RIGHT IN YOUR FACE.

                Good Grief.

        • will be VERY interesting to see if this comes to fruition.

          just in case, prep your souls

          whether it happens or not, prep your souls

      2. Kim like a baby stomping his feet for attention popping off a few bottle rockets before becoming a respected in his mind only world leader. Whew, a potential nuclear confrontation avoided. When is his Nobel Peace Prize going to be awarded?

        • Oh it’s a long way from being over.

      3. I’ll believe it WHEN it happens. Verify!

        • Those images seem to verify it is happening now.

      4. After completing successful launches and his warheads developed a nominal power rating, of course they disassemble they’re testing facilities. Now they can build a thousand more out of sight – just like we did. It’s not a far reach to consider that to avoid being hit by an error prone system, the Chinese probably assisted them to develop a control system. Right now Kim is as safe to the world as Iran.

      5. Ok what if Kim has recieved help by the Chinese. And now has the rocket and bomb needed to set off a EMP in the atmosphere? If you have the working product you no longer need the test facilities. And The old adage a armed society is polite society. Something happened to make Trump start being nice to Kim? Bullys only pick on weak folks. The notion od the climate cooling and entire nations starving is absurd. Folks only starve because they are lazy and lack Know How & Self Reliance. Venezuelia is a prime example. Great growing climate. Good land. Plenty of oil. And they are starving? And the eskimo in the frozen north where the growing season is short are fat.

        • I once thought like you until I set out to prove somebody else wrong. Prove me wrong about “climate” change.

          AND, TRUMP is not a nice man. Was/is he nice to IRAN?

          He insulted and kicked that fat little man in Korea right in the political face…..but that fat little man got “nice” and wanted to talk to TRUMP. TRUMP got respect for America by punching that little snot in the face.

          TRUMP is NOT nice, thank God. I am sick of nice leaders. They are weak, stupid, silly, and give our country away… that last wimp we called “President”.

      6. The unofficial word was that the goofy North Korean scientists and engineers did inadequate accessment of the terrain upon which their atomic testing was relying upon. These notonly grew fragile but collapsed due to the forces generated AND THEN testing caused fallout clouds that drifted over China and their masters were seriously upset.

        The long term plan the Chinese have is to replace the NK moron as the entire family has been a series of dolts an outright crazies, and then simultaneously get enough reunification agitators in South Korea going, that if a stable Chinese puppet can be found, then reunfication can exist and China will control both North and South Korea.

        Therefore it is the Chinese best interest to hamper Kim’s nuclear ambitions and ultimately replace him. As NK has a huge potential rare earth metals supply, the Chinese win big but seriously threaten Japan and Okinawa and upset the geopolitical hegenomy for all of Asia.

      7. Kim has one EMP satelite platform and two others which are potentially EMP platforms, but supposedly only one has a track over the continental USA as they have some issues retasking the other two. Then again, three NK satelites passing over the USA mainland would likely cause consternation and not in China’s best interests.

        • I myself would much rather have a EMP take down the electric grid than continue the cold war on the citizens of the USA. With a grid down it very soon becomes a survival of the fittest and those who prepped for the very worst. Everyone is on a equal footing without the enabling of the government or outside influence. Real fast everyone receives just dessert’s. everyone would get what they deserve and deserve what they get. Me and mine will wait it out in our cave. And it would be a unlucky person or persons who happen to discover us.

          • I hope it’s not just a bluff shelter because those are well known. If it is, I would seriously camoflage the entrance after entering.

            A trick the Japanese holdouts used after WW2 was to pass the chimney smoke over a series of damp screens or mats and this made the smoke nearly undetectable. Otherwise you get into an issue of them smelling your cooking fires.

            See Hiroo Onada and other holdouts as they have described this process.

            • One of the features in a rocket mass heater, which is a large combustion chamber evolution of rocket mass stoves, is that there are very low levels of particulates in the exhaust and it is mostly steam. Therefore a rocket mass heater is ideal for a prepper who wants high BTUs, a fraction of firewood use, hot water generation, and low emissions to avoid detection.

              Coupled with heat transducer to electric technology, you even get small amounts of electricity. This is called thermoelectric generation via the Seebeck effect.

      8. Liquid fuel not solid fuel factory they are tearing down. You want solid fuel rockets. Not liquid fuel rockets.
