Trump, Mattis, Mnuchin warn North Korea of ‘overwhelming’ military response, halted trade

September 4, 2017

MattisPresident Trump suggested Sunday, after another underground nuclear test by North Korea, that he’ll halt trade with any country doing business with the rogue nation, as two members of the president’s Cabinet issued tough warnings of their own.

“The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea,” tweeted Trump, in response to the regime of Kim Jong Un claiming to have detonated a hydrogen bomb underground.

Speaking to the media on Sunday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that any threats by North Korea to the U.S. or its allies will be met with an “effective and overwhelming” military response.

“We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so,” Mattis added.

      They are to dumb to understand what is going on , but they know everything about the Hollyqueers .

  • generalJed says:

    We should show the World that we are not afraid to use tactical nukes used in co-ordination to take every major military target and every major city in North Korea, starting with Pyongang. If I were in charge, it would happen as soon as possible. Our enemies would give us a wide berth after that.

  • Bruce Von Sprecken says:

    Most of this caused by the GREED and hate of America by none other than the Clintons!!!!!! The Bushes did nothing and Obama got the ball rolling again with that STUPID CRAZY IDIOTIC Iran deal! Now the threat is really real thanks to The Clintons and Obumbo!!

    Time to blow the little hermit and his ‘kingdom” off the face of the earth before HE does it first. The time for “action” is NOW. “negotiations” with a demented

    mad FAT troll, is NO LONGER an “option”. Just wait until he has all his “hardware” and troops on display (which he LOVES) and drop a few moabs on the whole “proceeding”…. problem solved.

    1. Retired says:

      Some Bunker busters are needed to close down the testing site , before China gets to strong .

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    Let’s see what halting trade with China will do for America with so many giant American corporations residing within its borders and making great use of their cheap labor and big profits going untaxed. How overwhelming will it be for us to lose Seoul and its 25 million South Koreans to any widespread attack, not pinpointed on nuclear and missile research facilities, and lose one ally and tens of millions of allied citizens? Are we prepared for China to nationalize American businesses and industry over there, or to invade the South right along with the North Korean armies just like Korea in the early 1950s? Will that retain friends for America; will it insure civil rights for those who follow America; will it be a paper tiger when we don’t ‘win’ the conflict–again?

    1. chw2000 says:

      You prefer Obama’s approach? You don’t know your a$$ from a hole in the ground. Go play with your numbers.

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        Obama, Bush2, Clinton, Reagan–only during Trump has Kim accelerated his threats, research, testing and production of missiles and bombs. We all know this, but not you??? Trump has drawn more red lines than all combined, and let Kim cross them with only bellicose rhetoric and phony China bashing to counter. Who’s the a$$ here?

        1. Jan says:

          Kim’s threats and rhetoric began escalating under Obama. They negotiated themselves into the ground and nothing has worked. I don’t know what the answer is as nothing seems to have deterred this little monster that controls that country.

          1. Retired says:

            Turning his lights out is the only answer .

          2. Retired says:

            Jan::::: You can not tell a hard rock anything .

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            Like other posters here you underestimate the enemy taking advantage of Trump’s ignorance and hubris, unlike other presidents including Obama. Kim, like many of us onlookers, we know a blowhard, lying, ignorant man when we see him and his past. It’s Trump being tested, not Obama.

          4. chw2000 says:

            “like many………. onlookers, we know a blowhard, lying, ignorant man when we see him”. No one could describe you better. Little Billybullshitte. How about we just sent your sorry ass to NK. You could dazzle them with your self proclaimed intelligence. You’re an over educated dumb ass that has absolutely no concept of reality. Now go phuk yourself shit head!

        2. Retired says:

          Dr . Bull that would be you !!! Clinton screwed up with North Korea , Go back and look at his term and dealings with the north . Kim Boy started his Nuke Ambition right after he took office and had nothing to do with Trump. Instead of reading your Union hate literature and spreading it , read about what is happening in the far East .

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            More generalizations hoping someone will agree. There have been 3 generations of Kims. Since Reagan, not limited to Clinton you favorite punching bag, Bush1 and Bush2 were all in the same boat. You are simply lying to admit no fault with other chief executives. You prove my assertion that conservatives extremists look to bash Democrats and Unions at every turn–unreasonably. BTW I correspond regularly with Chinese and Indians and others in Philippines, etc. You have nothing over me there, buster.

          2. Retired says:

            You Old wind bag :::: GW and Billy Boy were at the Bilderberg group meeting the Year before being elected , Hillary was to appear but backed out . Tell us what is going on in India and the Philippines ,smart guy .Want to hear your line of bull ..

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            Notice your list doesn’t include Obama and Trump. Leaders go to large groups, friendly and not, to account for many different trends in the nation and world. Trump went to distinctly unfriendly black groups to speak most recently. It means nothing but input for anybody but you conspiracy theorists. Hillary most assuredly knows what that secret group stands for and opted out as I would.
            What about India and the Philippines? How are they germane to the North Korea problem? Bob and weave; dodge and evade; bait and switch–that’s your tactic along with the extreme right. It’s very clear to those who see and think for themselves; no bull.

      2. Retired says:

        For all we know he could be Obama .

    2. Pete says:

      And your solution is???

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        Don’t we have Seal Team Six–and Five and Four and Nine, etc? They got Osama Bin Laden who made a successful attack on New York and Washington, didn’t they? Kim has yet to attack the USA, so we have the advantage of planning time again.

        1. Retired says:

          Bin Laden was cornered under Clinton and he Chickened out . Once Kim hits one of our Military facilities it will be to late . Instead of spreading hate go read up on what Kim’s ambition is .Like your Sister said you are a old windbag .

        2. Pete says:

          Just as expected, totally devoid of a workable solution to a complex world problem that was 20+years in the making.
          Initially started by a William Jefferson Clinton administration faulty decision to giving nuclear technology to North Korea. A mistake further compounded by decades of appeasement to a succession of North Korean leaders.

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            Where did you ever get the Clinton connection? Pakistan, Russia, China, Iran are more plausible than the ex-president conservatives love to bash at every chance. Source? Proof? With credible source(s)?

          2. Retired says:

            That is because you are in the dark as to what went on under Billy Boy because he kissed your Union A$$ or was it your Union Kissed his A$$ like OboHOmo .

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            Anyone with a brain, a job and a memory knows we had many years of increasing prosperity with Clinton. Your negativity can’t change history.

          4. Retired says:

            Tell that to all the people who lost jobs and benefits under 8 years of Clinton , but then you Gov. leeches never lost under Demo Rats like Obama and Billy boy . The Gov. Unions are the main ones that survived even the auto industry took it in the shorts but not you Tax payer milker’s .

          5. DrBillLemoine says:

            If you will open any American history book, you’ll discover what you don’t show here: knowledge of public schools starting to meet industry requirements for interchangeable trained workers for your fat cats. You are so caught up in propaganda, you can’t think straight or keep to the subject of North Korea. You’re just jealous that unions are the main supporters of Democrats and democratic principles of our nation. You simply want dictatorship with little or no education. Remember it was deregulation and Republicans under Bush2 who tanked the economy into the Great Recession in 2008-9. With strong unions it wouldn’t have happened–auto industry dying, being offshored, nearly eliminated.

          6. Pete says:

            Word for word quote of President Clintons 1994 framework agreement announcement that provided two modern nuclear reactors to North Korea.

            “I am pleased that the United States and North Korea yesterday reached agreement on the text of a framework document on North Korea’s nuclear program.

            This agreement will help to achieve a longstanding and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula.

            This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region.

          7. DrBillLemoine says:

            You MUST learn to read and understand the printed word. Nothing quoted above grants North Korea any nuclear bombs or missiles. If you jump ahead to another Clinton as SecState, recall we stopped Iran’s nuclear bomb development. Doubt Trump can do the same with NKorea. You are so blinded by propaganda you aren’t thinking straight.

          8. Pete says:

            Keep in mind professor I spent over two decades privy to the intelligence behind the public pronouncements. No mater your academic position, you only read what was made public.

          9. DrBillLemoine says:

            I don’t know your position, so unless you are the Director of National Intelligence, Secretary of State, Defense Secretary, FBI Director or their assistant, or presidential briefer, your knowledge is compartmentalized and incomplete. I doubt you were privy to presidential level information in briefings or complete raw data. Let’s hear how you got your ‘intelligence’ at so high a level. I also back up my assertion against your grandiose claim by reading Michael Hayden’s book and other high level sources of intelligence management, production, processing and reporting. Others like you may swallow your claims but not a thoughtful, well read and reflective writer like me. Coincidentally that’s also Trump’s failing, to discount the intelligence of reporters, writers and even the intelligence operatives you claim to be. He too will be torn asunder like RMNixon for his transgressions.

          10. Retired says:

            One thing is for sure you are no credible source !!! You are nothing but hate like your FAT CATS at the top of your union .

        3. USNavyPatriot says:

          The “osama capture” was staged for political purposes by obama. Remember how no real body was displayed like the execution of saddam in iraq. Bin laden actually died of lung disease in a Pakistani hospital in nov 2001.

          1. Retired says:

            Yes it was quite strange the way it was carried out .

          2. DrBillLemoine says:

            ‘Staged’; ‘political purposes’; ‘lung disease’??? Are you daft? Nobody but partisan you could imagine such nonsense about our #1 (at the time) enemy. Time for you to review all the relevant news including Seal Team Six reports and a book. You are isolated, it’s clear.

        4. Retired says:

          You can Thank Billy Boy for that , Bin Laden was cornered on his watch but would not let them take him down . You sound just like the Idiots in congress that think they know how to win a war by throwing billions of Dollars at countries to keep the market boys happy . Check how much was given to North Korea and other Middle east counties that are invading the USA as so called Refugees , more like cowards to fight for their homeland . Was you one of those DRAFT DODGERS that went to Canada ???? Once Kim Boy Strikes it is to late , COWARD like our politicians . .

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            Is it faulty memory, or just plain story telling? It was Bin Laden’s family that was here, not the man himself, when the tower was bombed. Fool your own kind but nobody else buys your lies.
            Now you are tying congress and war winning to foreign aid? Where do you get this tripe, all wacky. Pakistan cooperated with us from foreign aid and we still got Osama without their permission or knowledge, but no war victory. Humanitarian aid, like the winter parka I donated for some needy North Korean, was warranted but no peace treaty for Korea, no win. We left plenty of materiel in Iraq pulling out, and they gave it away in retreat to ISIL barbarians attacking, again without a win. You should know by now that the president controls war making, not congress, and all since WW2 have not won any wars. It’s more crap from you.
            Nobody is ‘invading’ America as refugee/terrorists. How dumb can you be. Our 18 month vetting has worked well for immigrants despite more crap from you to the contrary. But you believe Trump’s crap?
            So you are now afraid of Kim, Muslims, foreign aid countries, congressmen, spending money, invading immigrants. . . .Did I miss anything O Fearful One?

          2. Retired says:

            If you knew anything at all , it is the Pentagon that did not have the funds to transport the military equipment back home , you forget that we [ Military ] can not transport our stuff for decades now . If Obama had sent Troops in the day ISIS crossed the border our equipment would not have fallen into their hands . No Obama was to busy having a pissing contest with the Iraq leadership. Kim Boy is a threat to world peace and you know it even though you play IGNORANT . The only other Dangerous people are ISIS supporters like you and Obozo .

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            YOU forget that we stood up the Iraqis with our equipment to guard their nation. It’s you bozos who failed at that training, nothing to do with Obama who asked for status of forces agreement and was rejected by Maliki. No agreement, no remainder troops, bozo. It’s for military protection in a foreign land. And how is it you don’t know these things, military bozo.
            Kim and Putin and YOU are the only foreigners suggesting world jeopardy. Kim is a classic bully threatening the strongest kid on the block and you buy his propaganda. Even sadsack Trump know this and retaliates in words, but not deeds. You are not paying attention to the right cues on world affairs–dangerous: me and the ex president, really? You’ve lost your grip.

          4. NM Leon says:

            You are such an idiot, Bullschitte Billy.

            Our military recommended that we keep 15-20,000 troops in place. After the Grand Ayatollah al Sistani publicly said that he agreed with keeping Iraq together as one country, but that it would only work if the US stayed, it was a done deal.

            Bush foolishly left the new SOFA to his successor Obozo. Obozo, for the 1st time in SOFA history required that the agreement be voted on by the host country (Iraq) parliament. Maliki told Obozo he could only get it through the Iraqi parliament if we left at least 10,000 troops in country. Obozo came back with 3,500 deliberately queering the deal. Obozo then pulled out our troops.

            After we left, Maliki turned to Iran as a replacement for the support he lost when we left. He then at their behest purged the military we had built and trained of all Sunnis and put untrained cronies in command positions. When ISIS infiltrated Iraq, those inexperienced and untrained commanders fled leaving the remaining troops to follow.

            “No agreement, no remainder troops, bozo. It’s for military protection in a foreign land. And how is it you don’t know these things, military bozo.”

            Uh, earth to Bullschitte Billy, no agreement and we have 6-7,000 troops there NOW.

    3. Webb says:

      You offer the worse happenings…
      So what is your solution…More sanctions and talks which have not worked at all…China hasn’t stepped up to council N. Korea on its actions. The Un is to meet…That’s a waste.
      What’s Next…A missile on our West Coast.
      Then We Act??

    4. Retired says:

      Dr.Bullshitsky strikes again :::: It would serve those companies and the market boys well for sticking it to the Workers of the USA decades ago . You are so worried about Trump and Russia ties while China walks in the Back door . You are a Lot late to worry now.

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        Once more with clarity. Today’s Trump supporters are the ones you say got it stuck to them years ago, so are you backing corporations or workers? I’m concerned about American independence from Russian mafia and Putin ruling our presidency. Trump is their ‘useful fool’ for getting many feet inside top government levels, something they’ve tried since WW2 with middling success. Now Trump fawns all over those criminals and killers. China is another matter. As the top economy in the Far East we have little leverage over them without shooting ourselves in the foot now. I have no worries knowing both individuals and corporate Chinese.

        1. Pete says:

          Russia, Russia, Russia, with only accusations, & hearsay with no concrete evidence to back any of it up.

        2. Retired says:

          You shot yourself in the Foot by supporting China with your Union instead of teaching the true facts of their Communism is worse than Russia .Our Education system dumbed down what the Communist are really like . It was your type of thinking that allowed the Iron Curtain for over 50 Years .

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            Do you enjoy dying in quicksand? The more you write, the deeper you sink into stupid. Unions don’t support offshoring jobs to China. That’s for your fat cats, and mindless follower you.
            Do you know any Chinese to see what’s going on?
            It was Bush2 ‘No Child Left Behind’ that sank recent education, setting impossible goals and funding very little. No course in any school negates China’s emergence as Economy #2 today. What nonsense are you thinking now? Have you been to China to see, know any China natives?
            Actually Ike and the London-DC axis permitted the Iron Curtain though Churchill railed against it to FDR. Are you equating me with Churchill and FDR? Wow!

          2. Retired says:

            Your Fat cats at Union headquarters took your monthly dues and got rich , better retirement and health plan than what you have and you paid for it , your benefits come from the TAX Payers you milked over the years . The Education system has gone down hill after the Unions took control of you . You would not have made a good pimple on his fanny .

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            No teacher ‘milks’ anybody with principals having tight control, supervisors monitoring progress and school boards setting policy–it’s more nonsense by one who simply doesn’t know anything about teacher unions.
            Anything teachers, trained graduate school professionals, get is well earned and not what they are worth–not like doctors and lawyers with equal training.
            You realize unions have been around for 100 years and nothing has gone down except under Bush2 as noted and now DeVos who also has no experience in education but consumer. Most parents support their public schools, just not you whiny malcontents at the low end of the education spectrum.
            Now explain to us how your side-trip and deflections contribute to the topic of North Korea? You can’t focus long enough to carry on a decent argument on any topic.

          4. Retired says:

            You are so full of it . If Educators are so smart why do they need a Union to lead them by the nose ??? I am well up to date on the Educators Union and the crybabies that support them .They are home more than any other profession .Dr. and Nurses are far more trained and educated , plus they save lives , what do you cry babies do???? Most parents that scream the loudest are the ones who do not own homes . North Korea is something you can NOT comprehend .
