2. Good gawd... This will mean nothing to Trump, of course.

Two monsters--one just slightly more open about his murderous tactics (Trump kills his hidden away in "detention camps" wrested from their mothers, it seems).

We need to keep this in the public eye.

9. Reuters also reports NK announced the execution

North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said in a commentary on Thursday that “Acting like one is revering the Leader in front (of others) but dreaming of something else when one turns around, is an anti-Party, anti-revolutionary act that has thrown away the moral fidelity toward the Leader, and such people will not avoid the stern judgment of the revolution.”

“There are traitors and turncoats who only memorize words of loyalty toward the Leader and even change according to the trend of the time,” the commentary said.

It is the first time since the December 2013 execution of Jang Song Thaek, Kim Jong Un’s uncle, that expressions hinting at purging such as “anti-party, anti-revolutionary” and “stern judgment” appeared in Rodong Sinmun, Chosun Ilbo said.

12. I don't see it in their (Rodong Shinmun) English website

I'll check their Korean whe I get a chance

This is the link for their English site. It's kind of amusing

http://www.rodong.rep.kp/en/

I also checked kcna watch and didn't find it in the first articles on North Korea. I could have missed it though
KCNA covers both the English and Korean reports. I didn't see it in the Korean reports.

https://kcnawatch.org/

But, it gives me something to look for
Reuters appears to be taking its story from Chosun as well

That's why he's been questioning why he's only limited to two terms.

22. or...

They simply don't have a choice. in a country gripped by famine and economic collapse, where even a negative comment can get you jailed or worse, ans where there are spies everywhere - including your own house, what choice do they have?

Allso, it's entirely possible these diplomats were outed by trump himself, or one of the brats. Our intel service probably picked up the comments during the meetings and put them in a briefing. Off to kim they went. They probably got branding rights to some stretch of beach or a city somewhere.

26. Absolutely. And I have no doubt that both the

Kushner demon and the trump demons outed someone as a favor to at least one dictator. I'm hoping our IC is keeping these things in mind as they report to them. I suspect our allies are withholding details within information to protect sources and state secrets.

24. And the fucking moron in the White House admires Kim Jong Un.

When in the fuck are the Rs in the Senate going to wake the fuck up about the danger this fucking insane tiny penis represents to our national as well as the world's welfare?!

This is on all of them -- McTurtle and all of the corrupt and compromised foreign agents, fascists and Repugnant supremacists in the Senate. I frankly wish them all great harm.

Sorry for the language and frankness, but this situation is dangerously unacceptable and potentially catastrophic for us all in my estimation.

US checking reports North Korea executed envoy, says Pompeo

South Korean paper claims Kim Hyok-chol has been killed and a negotiator put in forced labour

Justin McCurry in Tokyo and agencies

Mike Pompeo has said the US is attempting to check reports that a senior North Korean official involved in Pyongyang’s nuclear negotiations with Washington had been executed.

“We’ve seen the reporting to which you are referring,” the US secretary of state told a news conference in Berlin in answer to a question. “We’re doing our best to check it out. I don’t have anything else to add to that today.”

Earlier on Friday, a South Korean newspaper reported that Kim Hyok-chol, the North’s special envoy to the US, had been executed over the failure of the recent summit between the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, and Donald Trump.

South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper claimed Kim and foreign ministry officials who conducted working-level preparations for February’s doomed Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi were killed in March.
