President Donald Trump has given military orders for U.S. forces to shoot down and destroy any missile launched from North Korea and moving toward the continental United States, Hawaii, and Guam.
Sources close to the president’s national security team tell Newsmax the order was given to Pentagon brass in the wake of last month’s threat by North Korea to fire a ballistic missile aimed at Guam, a U.S. territory.
“The threat provoked the president,” one source familiar with the decision told Newsmax.
Last Sunday, North Korea detonated a thermonuclear weapon. The communist regime claims they can fit the new device on advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles, known as ICBMs…. read more
It is possible that Kim Jong Un is God’s rod of judgment against America. This is as serious as it gets. The latest news is that North Korea is preparing to explode another nuclear weapon.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Hebrews 11:9-10 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Congressional Expert: North Korea Prepping EMP Catastrophe Aimed At U.S. Homefront 05/08/17
“While the international community and news media focus on North Korean missile tests and the country’s nuclear program, one expert warned on Sunday that North Korea may be secretly assembling the capability to take out significant parts of the U.S. homeland via an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack.
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and is the chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission.
He warned: “They are positioning themselves as sort of a nuclear missile age, cyberage version of the battleship diplomacy in my view. So that they can always have one of them (satellites) very close to being over the United States or over the United States…. read more
Is an American computer virus responsible for the many failed North Korean missile tests? In March, the New York Times reported, “Three years ago, President Barack Obama ordered Pentagon officials to step up their cyber and electronic strikes against North Korea’s missile program in hopes of sabotaging test launches in their opening seconds.”
North Korea’s missile program started with a surprising level of success. But in the last three years, whether caused by U.S. computer sabotage or not, they have had a stunning number of test launch failures.
The experts say that North Korean scientists learn from every failure. While that’s usually true, it may not be in this case. The scientists may already know the problem. It could be that their impetuous young “Supreme Leader,” Kim Jung-un, is pressing too hard, not giving them the time needed to do the job. If that’s the case, the question is not whether the scientists are learning the lesson, but is he?… read more
After years of inaction under Obama, the new president delivered the overdue message: There will be a price to be paid for massacres, for terror attacks, for the use of chemical weapons.
It would be wrong to get too carried away by the overnight US missile strike on the Syrian airbase, north of Damascus, from which it is believed the Assad regime launched Tuesday’s despicable chemical weapons attack. This was, after all, just a single retaliatory strike on an air base, and not a 180-degree change in US military policy. We don’t know what the Trump administration’s ongoing policy will be, should President Bashar Assad carry out further chemical weapons attacks, and we certainly have no sense that President Donald Trump will now be seeking to oust the Assad regime.
Nonetheless, the overnight US raid was dramatic and remarkable, especially when compared to the policy of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, which might best be summed up in the single word “inaction.”… read more
The United States should expect a “strong slap in the face” if it underestimates Iran’s defensive capabilities, a commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday, as Tehran concluded war games.
Since taking office last month, US President Donald Trump has pledged to get tough with Iran, warning the Islamic Republic after its ballistic missile test on Jan. 29 that it was playing with fire and all US options were on the table.
“The enemy should not be mistaken in its assessments, and it will receive a strong slap in the face if it does make such a mistake,” said General Mohammad Pakpour, head of the Guards’ ground forces, quoted by the Guards’ website Sepahnews…. [read more]
Reports claim the terrorist organization may have as many as 8 anti-ship missiles; Reports come following Nasrallah’s threat on nuclear reactor
Hezbollah has reportedly obtained several Yakhont missiles, reports claiming as many as eight.
Reports released Sunday cited Western intelligence sources claiming that the terrorist organization was able to smuggle the missiles into Lebanon, the timing of the smuggling unknown.
The Yakhont, or P-800 Onyx missile, is Russian anti-cruise missile. It is capable of reaching over 300 kilometers and can carry warheads weighing over 200 kilograms. The missile is most dangerous as it can travel just meters above water and is difficult to detect or intercept…. [read more]
First a spy ship off the US East Coast, now a banned missile.
According to the NYT, Russia has (not so) “secretly” deployed a new ground-launched intermediate-range cruise missile in violation of a 1987 treaty with the US which helped end the Cold War, despite complaints from American officials.
Reportedly, the move presents a “major challenge for President Trump, who has vowed to improve relations with President Vladimir Putin” and comes at a very sensitive time for Trump, currently reeling to stabilize the fallout from Flynn’s departure over his communication with Russia. The new Russian missile deployment also comes as the Trump administration is struggling to fill key policy positions at the State Department and the Pentagon — and to settle on a permanent replacement for Michael Flynn….

Third attack in a week from territory held by Iran-backed Houthi rebels draws US closer to ongoing civil war in Yemen
WASHINGTON – Multiple missiles were fired Saturday at three US warships in the Red Sea, though none was hit and there were no casualties, the US military said, amid rising tensions with Yemen’s Houthi rebels.
A US defense official said the altercation took place starting around 1930 GMT. It was unclear how many of the surface-to-surface missiles were fired at the USS Mason, USS Nitze and USS Ponce.
The USS Mason destroyer, which was sailing in international waters off Yemen’s coast earlier this week, used unspecified countermeasures against the incoming missiles, the official said.
“We are aware of the reports and we are assessing the situation. All of our ships and crews are safe and unharmed,” another US defense official said….. [read more]
