Top Story: North Korean women “required to submit to rape”

In probably one of the most bizarre stories we’ve ever seen, uh,  a damning profile of North Korean women is out this week.  In the story, see here, 62 defectors have come forward to reveal how North Korean women are “often subjected to extreme and or intense cases of rape” at the most senior and highest levels of men. In fact, it,  is widely considered so common — most North Korean women apparently don’t blink twice.  Weirdly enough, North Korea actually has laws against rape and sexual assault.  However, if the acts are committed by government officials, they often go ignored. Because we are not permitted to discuss rape or sexual assault in this newspaper we are obligated to direct readers in this direction — See here.

Kim Jong Un claims North Korea has a hydro Bomb

PYONGYANG -- If there's one thing North Korea is good at, perhaps, that would be stirring up trouble and drama on an international scale. According to  state run news reports, Kim Jong Un has now added another claim to his rhetorical profile. Un claims that during a visit to a museum dedicated to his grand father and father, that, he was finally able to "confirm" that North Korea indeed is in possession of a Hydro Bomb. Kim's Grandfather Kim II Sung "turned [North Korea] into a powerful nuclear weapons state ready to detonate a self-reliant A-bomb and H-bomb to reliably defend its sovereignty and the dignity of the nation," said Kim. Critics are skeptical right now, but some, are worried that it could be true.

Donald Trump sent an unusual gift to Kim Jong Un

And by unusual, uh,     a gift that might actually be considered a little offensive to the North Korean leader. According to reports, ehum,  Sec state Mike Pompeo is headed for the hermit kingdom (again),  where,  he will provide Kim with a gift from the US President. So what's on it? Per the Guardian,   Trump, apparently sent a CD with Pompeo containing the song "Rocket Man" by none other than Sir Elton John himself.     The Rocket Man reference came during the earlier months of Trump 's presidency when  North Korea and America were on the brink of civil war.

Trump announces summit location; date with Kim Jong Un

U.S President Donald Trump, ehum, has officially set a date with  Kim Jong Un. According to the White House, and Trump himself,   the  much-talked-about summit will take place in Singapore on 12 June.   The news comes after several mishaps regarding the whole ordeal, mostly, because nobody was quite sure how Kim would have gotten to the discussion in Singapore. The summit will discuss everything from nuclear weapons; to a potential peace treaty, and    a conjoined Korean partnership rather than two countries torn apart.

In that visit, he reportedly met Kim Jong un secretly in Presidential quarters to discuss the hotly-anticipated meeting between the United States and North Korea. The first of its kind since 2000, when,  Mrs Albright  visited Pyongyang in 2000, also then, as Secretary of State. In other news,  Kim Jong Un may not actually have the necessary airline capacity to actually make it to his meeting with the American president.

South Korea claims the North is ready to give up its nuclear weapons

Looks like those apparent top-secret talks between North and South Korea, may, have turned up something after all. According to the government of South Korea, North Korea, is , "readily prepared to give up its nuclear weapons". "North Korea has clearly expressed its intention for denuclearization on the Korean peninsula, and if there is no military threat, and North Korea’s regime security is promised, they have clarified that there is no reason to hold nuclear weapons," said a statement from the office of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, per Bloomberg. The North apparently wants guarantee that in exchange for following demands from world powers, that,  the nation will remain safe and the U.S will pretty much butt out of its life.    "They want guarantee that they will be safe as ...

Trump sentenced to die in North Korea over his own Twitter account

In an unusually angry op-ed that appeared on the front pages of state run media in the hermit kingdom. According to The Guardian,    Trump has now "become a part of North Korea's twisted criminal justice system has suggested he be put to death over his disruption of Korean society'. The state run paper suggested that his "complete disregard for North Korean society" is in itself grounds  to "die".   This is the first time a foreign leader of any capacity has ever suggested that a United States President either be sentenced to death or to simply die. Trump 's hopes of actually befriending  Kim Jong Un are seemingly more and more unlikely every day.

China says they won’t help North Korea if they dare hit America

Coming from the aforementioned semiofficial Chinese mouthpiece (the country's state run news agency).  According to the Global Times,  Chinese officials apparently have been discussing North Korea's much-talked about anticipated strike on U.S soil.  The Times claims that Chinese officials and its military have said that if the North tries to strike America first, the Chinese, will not assist when America retaliates. Interestingly, they then reversed sentiments and said if America strikes and tries to overthrow the regime of Kim Jong Un --   perhaps only then the Chinese would actually turn against America and defend Kim Jong Un.    Meanwhile, new photos of apparent missiles from North Korea have surfaced online. Chinese sources tell The Daily News that "This is indeed accurate.  Lead...

Donald Trump talks Kim Jong Un; North Korea, and more in high-stakes interview

The leader of the free world is a man of many words, or, uh, words that we just can't seem to grapple that is. In interviews with  Face the Nation, the President sat down with the show to talk about everything from his alleged nemesis Kim Jong un to how he thinks his first 100 days actually went. His response on Kim Jong Un: "Is he sane?" I have no idea. ... He was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father. He's dealing with obviously very tough people, in particular the generals and others. And at a very young age, he was able to assume power. A lot of people, I'm sure, tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else. So obviously, he's a pretty smart cookie." Partnering with China to discuss N. Korea : "And if I can use trade as a metho...

Report: S. Korea plans to assassinate North Korea’s Kim Jong Un

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA -- According to a new policy briefing released by South Korea's defense minister the country reportedly plans to put together a "brigade' capable of taking out N. Korean bigwigs including Kim Jong Un.  Although the two countries haven't gone to literal war (yet) as of late, they've technically still been at war since at least 1953. South Korea claims that the brigade would have the ultimate ability to take out much of N. Korea putting an end to the northern Korea's reign of terror on the world.  Although, nobody's quite sure how plausible this is considering nobody actually knows what's going on inside of North Korea.
