Trump Again Threatens North Korea With Nuclear War

The New York Times reports:

President Trump again raised the prospect of nuclear war with North Korea on Tuesday night, boasting that he commands a “much bigger” and “more powerful” arsenal of devastating weapons than the outlier government in Asia.

Mr. Trump’s combative response to a statement made in recent days by Mr. Kim raised the temperature in the brewing confrontation between the United States and North Korea even as American allies in South Korea were moving to open talks with Pyongyang. The contrast between Mr. Trump’s language and the peace overture by South Korea highlighted the growing rift between two longtime allies.

The president’s saber-rattling tweet shifted the tenor of his response to the South Korean initiative just hours after a milder initial statement. Mr. Trump, who has scorned the prospects of negotiating with North Korea, earlier in the day said the possible talks between the two governments on the peninsula resulted from sanctions imposed by the United States and the international community. “Perhaps that is good news, perhaps not – we will see!” he wrote Tuesday morning.

            The alt left kill heather heyer too?

            lol. nothing lazy about it. everyone too lazy or too righteous to vote for hillary in the face of Trump’s existential threat is responsible for this cataclysm.

            well known that US voter participation is low. and that third term elections are hard to win unless the economy is booming. not the time for vicious attacks from the far-left. 2000. 2016.

            why the far-left ideological purity tests are dangerous. they’ve set back progress for a generation.

            even far-left icon chomsky says they made a very bad mistake.

          • killreligion

            It’s a crime to live in our great country with freedom most of the world would give a child up for and not vote

            I also think we enable it by constantly crowing about voter access, giving the lazy cover to claim it’s too hard. Yes, quietly work to remove barriers but loudly proclaim the immorality of not voting

            Maybe we should take things away or give things for voting like access to services that are above a humane minimum.

            Oh, you want johnny to play sports? Let’s see if the whole family is voting.

            My town has weeks of early voting. Just walk in anytime. Register if you need to. City buses take you there. No excuses.

          • andrew

            I think that the people on the far left in the USA are far fewer in number than the legions of folks on the far right.

          • Todd20036

            They’re fewer, which is the only reason they are less dangerous.

          • killreligion

            It’s worse than that. The stupid policies. Free Starbucks for everyone! 90% tax rate over 250! 100% inheritance tax! Everyone should get a stipend, no other income!

            I’m exaggerating obviously but the crap Bernie spewed and the low information followers that wanted all that free stuff created a delusional wing that would never vote for that corporatist woman who doesn’t even have a penis.

          • vorpal

            <—- fairly far left, proudly voted for Hillary, and encouraged all the other expats here that I know to do so as well.

        • Do Something Nice

          Yes, the ‘far-left’ who brought you almost every one of the LGBT rights you enjoy, advances in AIDS treatment and prevention, women’s rights, just about every anti-war effort and everything else is ‘dangerous.’

          Fuck off.

          • killreligion

            Wrong. Centrists like me saved marriage after the nutty christers (not necessarily far right) tried to use the legislature to take it away here in mass. My centrist catholic dem rep flipped to a no on the recall after talking to me

          • Do Something Nice

            Good for you. But most centrists like you are/were too closeted to accomplish anything.

            Look, we all contribute, but to deny that the ‘far left’ saved lives during the AIDS crisis, fought hard and won many rights for LGBTs is fucking delusional.

            We all should be giving thanks to the far left and talk about delusional – the far left didn’t sink Clinton. Comey, sexism and Robby Mook did that.

          • killreligion

            Ok, you’re right. I was just talking about marriage in mass which is a strange place with our centrist Dems and republican running everything

            But on closeted? I know many non closeted centrists

            I won’t deny the contributions you cite and appreciate your redirecting. But I do have an issue with the far-anything. Moderation means you consider and decide for yourself. It’s not being moderate on each issue, it’s more of an average. I can’t be far right for obvious things like bigotry and I can’t be far left for things like competitiveness

            But on many issues I take the left or right position. I don’t take the position of my “side” as that negates needing a brain.

          • joe ho

        • Todd20036

          They can redraw the constitution that basically legislates freedom only to white, christian, male, straight

            There’s tons of those.

      • It’s been so depressing to listen to NPR regularly do a station break feature of “voices” of those who have been interviewed over the past 65 years. One they frequently quote is Gordon Kiyoshi Hirabayashi, famed for his experience in the Japanese American Internment Camps–when asked if he believed it could happen again, he responded he had no doubt.

            A Democratic congress can vote to expand all courts when a Democratic president takes office.

            I’ve always thought we should have a justice for every circuit court.

    OT, repost in case anybody knows anything on the overnight crew: I went to the ENT today and the Latera failed. As we knew. Basically, it feels like there’s always something stuck or touching in my right-hand nostil, up high where the nasal cuff is (and has collapsed).

    So he’s recommending septoplasty, turbinate reduction (if necessary), and nasal spreader grafts. While it’ll very slightly change the way my nose looks–to be a bit wider up top to accommodate the expanded spreader graft–it’s minor.

    And fortunately, I won’t need a cut (or scar) on the front of the nose; the first quarter inch of my nasal septum is just fine. The rest of it is a tortured S-curve.

    I’m chewing on this, but has anybody else ever had cuff collapse?

    I maintain that there’s no real chance of a nuclear exchange. Kim knows that firing a nuclear missile at the U.S. (which is extremely unlikely to make landfall) means destruction, and if Trump is goaded into a first strike, a conventional strike would suffice. This is not to downplay the seriousness of the situation: if North Korea is hit, Kim has nothing to lose, and he will send his troops across the DMZ and throw whatever remaining weaponry he has at South Korea and Japan, the vindictive last gasp of a dying tyranny. The death toll of Koreans and Japanese, not to mention Americans and other foreign nationals in the area, will be catastrophic.

          But I agree, it’s unlikely. Covert regime annialation is likely being planned

    • JohnJay

      I think Trump already has planned a conventional “shock and awe” type attack (his generals won’t go for nuclear… which probably PO’d Trump). As such, think timing to be around 3 days before through 3 days after any month’s New Moon phase. For example, this month, that would be Jan 28-Feb 3rd. Cruise missiles are slow and low, and if seen, can be shot down. They need a dark night for best success.

    This is NOT Presidential per Twitter’s new code of behavior that was adapted to accommodate Trump. This is bullying, fear mongering and it is affecting the lives of millions by causing undo stress and untold mental anguish.

    Millions of people in America and worldwide should not have to read and therefore live in constant fear of his actions.

    If he is so passionate then he (the President) can release a press statement or hold a press conference.

    This is LAZY governing of people.

    • gaycuckhubby

      There are plenty of checks and balances for our President… Congress, Courts, Dept of Justice, FBI, CIA, Media, and ultimately the Voters.
      Lets not blame this on Twitter. If he gets kicked off of Twitter do we need to boycott any news channel that he speaks on? Or C-SPAN? Do we boycott newspapers that print his press releases?

      • BlackGayVeganAtheist

        No, because that is the cycle on which a President can and should speak…social media is NOT it is too knee and full of JERK…

      • BlackGayVeganAtheist

        HELL YES, I do “blame” Twitter when they have specifically adapted their rules to accommodate Drumpf (they did not change one THING for when Obama was President…hmm, I wonder WHY that is) and therefore by osmosis increase membership and put more money in their pockets via ad revenue.

        That would be NO different if someone said, I will allow Harvey Weinstein to continue to run his company because he has been proven to make us money therefore he is given a free pass on all allegations against him.

    The recklessness of that tweet is beyond comprehension. It seems like there is a disconnect, in his mind, between the utter destruction that nuclear weapons cause and his adolescent need to play chicken with another strutting adolescent baffoon.

    • MBear

      Well, apparently he is the best and the brightest that the american system can offer

    • another_steve

      The Adam Blickstein tweet Joe posted above – “I think Trump’s new strategy is to drag the world into nuclear war before Mueller can indict him so, even though life on earth will be over, he will forever be innocent” – probably says it all.

      Trump knows his presidency will be over if he does what he really wants to do – which is to order Mueller fired.

      The only other option for him – to get the media and the public off Russiagate – is to get us involved in nuclear war.

      • andrew

        I don’t think that Trump can “drag the world into nuclear war,” but it is certainly possible that he might start a war with NK so that he can escape the consequences of the Mueller investigation. That war could cost the lives of millions.

  • Cuberly Deux

    So the supposed bombshell that was supposed to be on Lumpy’s TV show was basically Lumpy having a tantrum about deep state and how Hillz is the real criminal.

    Why hasn’t Twitter banned Donald Trump?

    Let’s all get over the fantasy that Twitter is anything other than a money-hungry commercial scumbag corporation that would give Dead Adolf Hitler a voice if it would increase their ad revenues.

    Twitter is largely responsible for Donald Trump.

      • houstonray

        This!!! I hear people say they want him to stop tweeting or twitter to block him. On the contrary, as scary as they may be, we must have the tweets continue. It’s one of our only insights into the mind or a madman…

      • Rambie

        Can one get the data out of the Twitter servers after the nuclear winter is over?

        We have enough on the permanent record, I’d rather see him shut down.

        • peacfulseas inWA

          Evidently we don’t have enough on the permanent record. The fool is still in office.

          • Rambie

            That’s not about the amount of data, it’s that the GOP in Congress are complicit and won’t do anything to remove him.

          • peacfulseas inWA

            And that is news to you? There is good news in the number of R’s abandoning ship to distance themselves from the bait and switch con man’s administration.They will remain complicit until the end and then then turn on him if the dems can get their act together in 2018.

          • Rambie

            No it’s not news to me, but you were using it as a reason to keep Trump’s Twitter feed open.

          • peacfulseas inWA

            I still believe it should not ban the bait and switch con man because the world is watching, listening not just the USA. They will understand and rejoice in his downfall as much as we do. Similar to the fall of Iraq but without a statue to topple.

          • Rambie

            I’m for letting him keep tweeting too, as long as he doesn’t stumble us into a war. Not only for “the record” or sense of history but more that it’s like a pacifier for him. The baby needs his binky and naps.

          • Rambie

            Though, I too like he’s on Twitter revealing to all how crazy and stupid is he on a daily basis. As long as it doesn’t stumble us into a war.

          Both parents have to apply for the child’s passport here. It makes it a real pain when they are divorced and living in different states. I don’t know what sort of controls there are for taking a child out of the country. US Immigration does not check passports when people leave.

      unfortunately, unlike conservatives who will eat their own vomit to get and hold on to power and keep the dems out, the far-left will either withdraw or sabotage if their feelings are hurt or if the candidate isn’t pure enough. they are why we can’t have nice things in this country.

      I live in Issa’s district. I’m really tired of Dem nobodies suddenly deciding they need a hobby and that it’s going to be running for congress.

      Sara Jacobs, I’m looking at you!

      • SoCalGal20

        I think it’s going to be Mike Levin as the Dem candidate when all is said and done. It would be totally hilarious if Issa got shut out in the jungle primary, though.

        • TimCA

          Levin or Applegate. Either one is acceptable to me. I wish Jacobs and Kerr would find something else to do with their time.

          • SoCalGal20

  • What concerns me is this. There is no way that Trump is going to be removed from office visa-vi the impeachment route anytime soon. At best, if the Democrats take the House in November, we can talk about impeachment and removal via Senate trial then — which can only succeed if enough Republicans in the Senate decide to go along with it (yada yada yada). Yet, impeachment is the sole thing many on the left seem to care about. And, as many are pointing out, primarying sitting Democrats from the left is a recipe for disaster. Discipline and pragmatism is something that progressives seem to have in very short supply these days — and fueled by the nuttiness and conspiracy theories of social media and clever trolls (such as those which appear here) we will rip ourselves apart.

    • Lazycrockett

      We cant let the left run rampant with their fucking purity bs in 2020. We have to unite and get that foul evil POS out of office.

      • We have to take the House at all costs. Then we have subpoena power and control committee investigations and budgets. Once the Democrats control the House then the game changes. Until then it is one party government—

        • DaddyRay

          This election is also important because we have the 2020 Census approaching

          • The Dems are in good shape to take Governorships and state houses. Yes.

    I’m sorry, but this message, irresponsible as it is, is only to titillate the base. The New York Times would be better off saying the president delivered an unseemly and juvenile taunt via Twitter today without quoting and analyzing it.

      The New York Times is involved in “The Great Normalizing.” The normalizing of the degradation of the U.S. presidency that is Donald Trump.

      The entire American press is. I and others here have asked this question:

      Why do reporters and journalists associated with the legitimate press (as opposed to, say, Fox News or Breitbart) attend the press conferences conducted by that propagandist shill, Sarah Huckabee Sanders?

  • Moebym of the Returners

    So my dad wants to form a business with me. I’m not keen on it, but there’s no way I can back out of this arrangement now…at least, not without some lasting strain on our relationship.

    With our personalities, we’ll constantly be at each other’s throats. I’m a more cautious, methodical, dot-i’s-cross-t’s type person; he’s a Type-A on steroids who wants everything done YESTERDAY, no matter how. We both happen to be stubborn and proud people who don’t easily admit to being wrong. It just seems like a recipe for disaster.

    • Treant

      One word: Don’t.

      Even if you have to strain the relationship, going through with this will strain it more. Much more.

      Your description equates to, “Run. Run fast. Don’t stop running until you’re in another country altogether.”

      • Moebym of the Returners

        I wish I could run from this whole deal, but I’m pretty much trapped, mentally (and to an extent, physically).

        • Treant

          That’s not a problem. The word “no” still works even in close proximity.

        • Bambino

          If you can’t back out at least get a competent lawyer to dot the i’s and cross the t’s. If you can’t salvage the relationship at least you don’t lose the shirt off your back when the partnership doesn’t work out.

    • AJ Drew

        It’s disaster waiting to be happen. Seen it and experience it many times over.

    • DaddyRay

      It will be a bigger strain on your relationship with your dad if you do go into business together than if you just say no now

      • coram nobis

        Concur.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Strain now is better than utter destruction later. He’s liable to blame everybody else including you if/when the business fails despite the fact that you warned him from the beginning. Money loss makes any fighting worse. Point out to him what you’ve told us. Tell him that if it’s such a great idea, he can find outside investors/workers.

      Also, what kind of business is it and how much money on both sides is being invested in it? There is the problem of limitless liability unless you set up as a corporation or some kind of limited partnership. Refuse to put in any of your money.

      One business I strongly recommend against is a restaurant. They have an insanely high failure rate and after see dozens of Gordon Ramsey clips, so many people think they can cook swill and think they can charge $50 & up.

      • Moebym of the Returners

        I still firmly believe the theory that the DNC and RNC both got hacked.

        The DNC hacked material was used out of context to embarrass and divide the Dems.

        The RNC hacked material was uses as blackmail to block any Russian probe or impeachment.

    If I ever meet a Twitler supporter (or Stein or Never Hillary supporter) in person, it will be difficult to restrain myself from asking if watching their children die from radiation poisoning or slowly starving to death in a nuclear winter was really worth the mental orgasm of “sticking it to the man” by “punishing” us “politically correct snowflakes” for talking about diversity or not caring enough about some emails that were sent at some point several years ago.

            My best ever Cat Nemo bit me once as a kitten, with tiny needle sharp teeth. He must have hit something good because it squirted!

            I thought that as the Giver Of Kibble I could grab him. Nope!

          • Gianni

            Lesson learned? 🙂 I can’t explain why, but that is part of my cat’s nature that I like. We have a lot of interaction, petting, carrying him around. If I’m home, he wants me to hold the dry food in my palm while he eats it and he lets me know when he’s hungry and when I stand up to obey him, he won’t let be walk away from him to go to the kitchen – I have to carry him with me so he can eat. BUT, if, for whatever reason, he gets irritated with my petting him, he won’t hesitate to bite the hand that quite literally feeds him. He’s never drawn blood, but those teeth hurt. When I yell at him, he runs away and comes back in a few minutes and we’re friends again. But when he purrs as I pet him, I can’t help but love him all the more.

          • greenmanTN

            The littlest kittens are still somewhat feral. They are due to get “fixed” soon, like any day now. (Haven’t made the appointment yet, my bad.) They let me pet them but I have to approach them the right way, slowly. I grabbed and the back claws got me good. My fault. It was stupid to post anything about it, but I was bleeding like a stuck pig at first.

          • Bomer

            My newly adopted cat (she adopted me) is going down next week (hopefully) to get fixed. She’s already gone in to heat once and I can’t live through the yowling again.

          • greenmanTN

            I am hoping to head that off. As bad as female cat yowling is, male cat spraying is worse. It’s not quite as bad as skunk, but it’s in the same family.

          • Bomer

            No lie. Thankfully my three boys were all fixed before that became a problem.

          • greenmanTN

            Strange but true, all the male cats love me. Well, except for that whole “you just scratched the shit out of me!” thing. Girlene is the exception.

          • Bomer

            Usually most animals like me (I’m a bit iffy with birds). I literally can’t go any where in my apartment without a furry escort. I can’t even take a bath by myself with out 1-4 cats watching me to make sure I don’t drown.

            Back in August when I took my car in to have the oil changed and the tires realigned the shop had a little dog running around. He blew past the other customers (stepping on one guys foot) to come over and jump all over me. The guy that was stepped on said “I’m actually offended; I’ve never been so thoroughly ignored before.” So far the only dog that I’ve met that doesn’t like me belongs to a friend of mine. The reason for that seems to be that the dog is afraid of cats and that’s what I smell like.

        • Bomer

          Tried to pick up a skittish kitten once and it bit through my thumb nail.

            Nicolle has been a surprise as she is a Republican but I think she is motivated because she was aligned with the Bush camp and probably has an axe to grind over the treatment of Jeb

          • Lazycrockett

            I just think she a real conservative republican who is calling out the GOP for their bullshit. Got to give to her though, she bout as hard as Lawrence when it comes to calling out Drumpf.

            I just worry that she will in the end defend or normalize Republicans

          • JCF

            Again, I honestly don’t think so. She has gone SO far beyond Pence’s homophobia (partly due, I think, to her buddy Steve Schmidt, w/ his lesbian sister. They could not STAND that about Palin!)

          • Lazycrockett

            I liked her on the view, cause for the most part she founded her conservative beliefs in small government and fiscal responsibility, which I don’t have a problem with if you are logical bout your beliefs. She also doesn’t seem to be social conservative which is a big bonus. I actually usually nap for a bit at her time slot but have moved it forward to Chucks show.

          • JCF

            She seems to have *genuinely* turned. [If I met her, I’d certainly have some choice questions re the “Federal Marriage Amendment”.

    Off-topic, but completely nuts.
    In Minnesota a 14 year old girl took a naked picture of herself and send it to a classmate over Snapchat. The classmate took a screenshot and shared it with other people in the school without her permission.
    SHE is now being charged with  “felony sex offense of knowingly disseminating pornographic work involving a minor to another person.” 
    If convicted in juvenile court she will be forced to be added to the Sex Offender Registry.
    Washington State Supreme Court held up a similar conviction of a 17 year old boy recently.

      Sounds like the laws revolving around what constitutes a sex offender are a bit heavy handed.

      What a shame that the people cant elect responsible lawmakers.

        Fear rules the day!

      That’s fucking insane, but not surprising. I know a woman who is on the sex offender registry. What was her awful, horrible, “crime?” One night, sitting in the car with her husband at the beach, after a night out of dinner and drinking, she gave him a blow-job in the front-seat of the car. You know, doing an innocent thing humans have been doing forever and is probably happening right now about a million times over.

      The sex offender registry has gone from identifying pedophiles to identifying every human being that has ever had consensual sex. Our legal system is no longer about right and wrong. It’s about packing our for profit prison industry facilities with bodies.

    OT: Backwards cap, dreads below his shoulders, clearly born decades after her death and still has a framed photo of Marilyn Monroe.

      [Pssst! It may have come w/ the frame!]

      • Reality.Bites

        Why would anyone go to the trouble of hanging a frame containing a picture they didn’t choose?

        Of course it’s not necessarily their room. It’s quite plausible they’re staying at a gay-owned B&B which in my experience are quite often owned by people who enjoy hanging photos of Marilyn.

        • customartist

          Stagers regularly utilize pre-framed generic stock photos.
          Just sayin’.

      • Dayglo

        Among the things that work my gay nerves are bad “art” choices and terrible framing/matting. Oh, and straight people who’ll frame huge color photo portraits of their big-headed bratty kids.

    I threaten to punch someone and I’d get banned from Twitter, this idiot threatens the world and he’s still active. When does Twitter take some responsibility for enabling him? People should start boycotting the platform, hit them where it hurts, when Twitter starts losing advertisers and users maybe they’ll take notice. Glad I stay far away from social media.

    • Gretchen

      That’s the exact reason I stopped using Twitter.

    • good morning, darling. lol.

      i often have thoughts about what i want to do. among other things, i’m a priestess of an ancient religion, higher grade. spells aren’t helping right now, but there’s stuff one can do with plants… heh, i said “plants.”

    • Bj Lincoln

      Sure feels like this. I would be glad to change the channel to the one where Hillary becomes President and the world is safe from nutjobs like Drumpf.

    • JCF

      Sigh. If only. It’d be OVER in a half hour!

  • lymis

    Trump ran (ostensibly) on running the country like a business.

    Is there ANY major (or hell, minor) company in the country that wouldn’t remove a CEO who was behaving this way?

    • boatboy_srq

      Blackwater, Custer Battles, BP, Exxon.

      Outside them, though….

  • customartist

    The Republican controlled House and Senate protect this clearly insane man while he rants at the entire world. WHO is voting for Trump and the Republican Party?

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    The entire GOP is culpable for allowing the unthinkable to be even possible.

    Arrest them all stat !
