Trump Asks All 100 U.S. Senators To Attend Rare White House Briefing On North Korea

By Mac Slavo

With a U.S. Naval Fleet set to fully arrive off the North Korean coast this week and the rogue state’s leader Kim Jong-un reportedly continuing to expand his nuclear program and missile testing, President Donald Trump told United Nations Security Council ambassadors that the status quo must change.  The President has asked that new sanctions be placed on North Korea, something his predecessors attempted to implement with little success.

But unlike his predecessors, Trump’s latest moves suggest he is prepared to commit U.S. forces to North Korea should the state fail to comply with demands to stifle their nuclear program, and according to a new report from Reuters, the President is doubling down on his efforts, hinting that he is indeed preparing military action.

Top Trump administration officials will hold a rare briefing on Wednesday at the White House for the entire U.S. Senate on the situation in North Korea.

All 100 senators have been asked to the White House for the briefing by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Monday.

While administration officials routinely travel to Capitol Hill to address members of Congress on foreign policy matters, it is unusual for the entire Senate to go to the White House, and for all four of those officials to be involved.

Wednesday’s briefing was originally scheduled for a secure room at the Capitol, but President Donald Trump suggested a shift to the White House, congressional aides said.

Washington has expressed mounting concern over North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests, and its threats to attack the United States and its Asian allies.

Having all 100 U.S. Senators attend what is essentially an intelligence briefing about a country that has repeatedly threatened the United States with nuclear attack suggests that the President is looking to convince Congressional members that we may need to declare war on North Korea if they refuse to comply with new and existing sanctions.

Given that the United States now has a Naval strike group in the region, China has massed 150,000 troops on the border and Russia is quickly following suit, it appears that it is only a matter of time before a North Korea invasion becomes a reality. As we’ve witnessed in recent weeks, Kim Jong-un appears to be stepping up his rhetoric, as well as his military aspirations.

While the state has been allowed to run freely for the last decade by ignoring sanctions, President Trump has made clear that he is ready and willing to take military action as evidenced by his missile strike on Syria and most recently, the dropping of the Mother of All Bombs on an Islamic State cave complex in Afghanistan.

North Korea is a different animal altogether. They are reportedly nuclear capable, so there is a real possibility that they could launch a devastating attack on South Korea, Japan or even the West Coast of the United States, leading to hundreds of thousands of casualties and widespread geo-political and economic chaos. Thus, any attack initiated by President Trump will likely result in a response from North Korea, which could ultimately lead to a much wider conflict as we really don’t know which side Russia and China are on.

President Trump likely understands the seriousness of the situation, which would explain why he has invited 100 Senators to the White House for an intelligence briefing. Per the Constitution, only Congress can declare war, and it appears this is exactly the direction we’re headed.

  1. Oh Yaay another war, just what we needed.

  2. “Per the Constitution, only Congress can declare war, and it appears this is exactly the direction we’re headed.”

    I for one hope against prospects of war, any war, this one especially though. Seriousness is not nearly strong enough to describe such a prospect, in my humble view, thinking grave might be more apropos. Engaging in this theater will only serve for sending our soldiers back to us in ditty bags, think of scraping them up with spatulas and then do not even imagine the horrors what will be visited on our shores, save yourself the nightmares.

  3. Strange Trump is going this route as the script has already be made on how to invade and attack another country. Look what is happening in Syria. The US finally sent the US troops and bombed Syria. I guess that he doesn’t want to wait very long. He wants to attack now. Why not follow Bush’s example and claim they have WMD? The truth may lie in the fact that N. Korea remains one of the last countries that do not have a Rothschild central bank and this is the reason for attacking N. Korea.

    • Because he got such great reviews from the media when he dropped bombs on Syria & Afganistan is why he craves it now. Any war where we make the first move is aggression, regime change, & illegal; which he criticized & promised not to do.

    • What a turn around from trying to make friends to now flat out making enemies where he drop some bombs. If he attacks Korea I cant see it working out well for all the babies that he loves so much. And maybe one of them could be his grandchild.

  4. Looks like another event for the purpose of collecting false flag footage for the people of NK. They’ve seen some launches from home, and they will see our government agency drills and be told it’s the US reacting to Kim’s attack.

    Then our Minute Man ICBM test is publicly announced for today, and Kim’s regime will blow up some part of NK or it will look like a failed attack. And now we have a highly publicized, rare meeting between the president and the entire senate. More dramatic optics to be presented as a panicked US declaring war.

    This would be a very convincing way to set Kim up to save face with the NK people and end his missile shenanigans. And it might be material for China and Russia to show to Kim to scare him into standing down.

    The Senate is useless and pointless since the States no longer control their senators. Donald would be better served working with the nat assoc of governors.

  6. activist post is revealed to be another state dept.shill voice. NK was bombed to the stone age in the 50’s killing 1/3 of the people, bio and chemical atrocities. US has amassed enough weaponry in SK to melt the peninsula, and NK is “prohibited” to respond. All this is for the MIC/banking mafia.

  7. It’s cheaper to go to Florida than Israel – that’s why !

  8. Bush 2 did just about the same thing, he got a memo from congress that told him to invade the middle east.

  9. Activist post is no longer alternative media but a pro war mouthpiece.
