CAMPAIGN NEWS 2026
NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATE 2026: ACCORDING TO A STATEMENT RELEASED BY THE OFFICE OF SENATOR JEANNE SHAHEEN THE SENATOR WILL BE MAKING AN ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING HER "FUTURE" ON SATURDAY APRIL 12 2025 IN MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE...
First Democratic Senate Retirement of the 2026 Election Cycle? The Office of Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire) released a Statement today announcing that the Senator would be making a Statement about her "FUTURE" on Saturday April 12 2025 in Manchester, New Hampshire sending Granite State Political Operatives on both sides into a frenzy.
A Republican Strategist in the State says "It's more likely than not she announces her Retirement. Senator Shaheen has been in New Hampshire Politics for nearly 30 years now and given her age (Shaheen turns 79 next year) a Retirement seems highly likely"
A Democratic Strategist says "Don't you think Governor Chris Sununu can just waltz into the Senate. New Hampshire Democrats have a deep bench in case Senator Shaheen chooses to retire."

NEBRASKA SENATE 2026: FORMER GOVERNOR PETE RICKETTS HAS SCHEDULED AN ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT HIS POLITICAL FUTURE ON MONDAY APRIL 14 2025 IN NEBRASKA CITY, NEBRASKA
According to Political Sources in the Cornhusker State former Governor Pete Ricketts has scheduled an Announcement about his Political Future on Monday, April 14 2025 in Nebraska City, Nebraska.
Ricketts indicated in February that he was considering a Senate Run to replace former Nebraska Senator and current Education Secretary in the DeSantis' Administration Ben Sasse. Former Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman is currently serving as a "Placeholder".

CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR/CALIFORNIA LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR 2026: REP. YOUNG KIM & REP: MIKE GARCIA TO HOLD JOINT CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF EVENT IN SAN FRANCISCO THIS WEEKEND
According to Statements by their respective Congressional Offices Rep. Young Kim and Rep. Mike Garcia will hold a Joint Campaign Kick-Off Event in San Francisco this weekend where both will talk about the border at length as well as the North Korea Nuclear Threat.
Political Operatives in California on both Sides have now acknowledged that the State's Open Governor Race and other Statewide Offices could be in play next year and they say the reason is "ALL OF THE ABOVE". When asked to clarify they cited "Low Approvals by the Governor, the Border Crisis and the Nuclear Threat and general unrest in Asia." which could all lead to a perfect storm to flip the State next year.
The Democratic Operative pointed out that the State has the largest Asian-Pacific Islander Community in the entire Country and Rep. Young Kim, given her South Korean Heritage has already attracted large swaths of that Group. The APIC has been a reliable Democratic Voting Group in California but quote "I am not sure if that will hold up next year. Also, give Republicans Credit, they already selected the best possible Ticket to run for Governor (Kim) & Lieutenant Governor (Garcia)".
The Republican Operative pointed out "Voters are tired after an unchecked 16-year Democratic Rule in the State".

BREAKING NEWS! REPORTS ARE COMING IN OF A MISSILE ATTACK ON SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA

Hi this is Bret Baier of Fox News, here in Washington, we are learning that Seoul, South Korea  was under fire a few moments ago, it appears that a Missile missed the city, disappearing into the Sea of Japan. We have footage from an amateur video recording, and as you can see the missile flies overhead.

I have with me in our studio, Jennifer Griffin who has been following this story ever since this crisis began and of course, Jack Keane. First of all to you, Jennifer, what's the latest you're hearing?
Griffin : From what I am learning Bret, is that this incident is consistent with what occurred and they have concluded that the North Korea military is not fully in control of their missile systems and gives an indication that this North Korea Jihad has failed to obtain the arming protocols for these missiles. One thing that the Pentagon concludes that this group can launch these missiles, but beyond that, they don't have the necessary know how.
Baier : Jack Keane, your thoughts?
Keane : Apparently if this is North Korea's military, it would be out of character, for this to occur, it's not part of their  playbook and I am given to believe the idea, that if this is the handiwork of this North Korea Jihad, why no claim of responsibility or demands? It must be concluded that their objectives haven't been achieved, so there is likely going  to be no claim of responsibility.
Baier : Jennifer, have the Pentagon given you any updates of any other deployments?
Griffin : No further updates, Bret, and until they are comfortable with their preparedness, we can expect that the Pentagon will not be making any announcements anytime soon.
Baier : Jennifer, as we now know Chinese missiles are likely to have caused a great deal
of damage to North Korea's military facilities, any indication how bad this damage was?
Griffin : All the Pentagon or the CIA can say with a degree of certainty, is North Korea's Missile program sustained damage on a wide scale, but beyond neither will expand on the extent of this damage.
Baier : Thank you Jennifer, if any new developments occur, we will get back to you. General, thank you too Sir.

BREAKING NEWS
NORTH KOREA PRESIDENTIAL PALACE HIT BY 3 CRUISE MISSILES

ABC LIVE NEWS ANCHOR LINSEY DAVIS: We have BREAKING NEWS and very disturbing News out Pyongyang. What are you seeing right now is the Presidential Palace in Pyongyang - a big fire, lots of smoke. Unclear right now if this CHINA (which I think is doubtful) or the North Korea Jihad Group. Reports are the Palace has been hit by 3 Cruise Missiles. It's also unclear if President Kim Jong-un was inside. As you are already know we have been reporting since last weekend that the North Korea Jihad Group is trying to get control of North Korea. It looks very much like things spiraling out of control very quickly in that Country.
We come back to you when we have more Information.

Hi this is Bret Baier again, as you no doubt know by nowp that 3 cruise missiles targeted the Presidential Palace in Pyongyang, apparently the damage is extensive, but there's uncertainty to the whereabouts to Kim Jong-Un or senior members of the North Korean government is, as of now unknown. These developments, led the White House to announce that the President is scheduled to offer remarks in a short while, so while we wait, we will go to Peter Doocy, Peter what do you have for us?
Doocy : Hi Bret, we just learned a few moments ago that the President is scheduled to make to speak about the events which have so far occurred, we have a one minute warning.

Baier : Thanks Peter, okay we are now going to White House briefing room.
(Announcer: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

'Good evening everyone, I would like to address you tonight on those developments which have occurred in the past few day's and what we are learning and these events will mean.
However before I do, I need to discuss what has occurred in the past few hour's, you now know that the presidential palace in Pyongyang was struck by 3 missiles, and from what we so far know, is that we do not know the whereabouts of Kim Jong-Un or members of his government. What is certain however, is that a group known as North Korea Jihad, is the likely perpetrator of this, as well as the missile attack on Seoul, and Yokota over two weeks ago. So now to what these events will mean, firstly is that we have on standby in the Sea of Japan, two carrier groups, the Nimitz and Reagan and a few minutes ago, I gave authorization for military operations to commence against specific North Korean military targets, these actions are necessitated by the dangers to civilians in an around Seoul, and we now understand that with the existence of nuclear stockpile very much in the balance, the choice is clear, thank you and God bless our men and women in uniform. Thank you.


THURSDAY APRIL 10 2025:

US INFLICT HEAVY DAMAGE IN OVERNIGHT BOMBING RUNS
.
F-18 Hornet aircraft were deployed from the aircraft carrier's Nimitz and Reagan  and inflicted severe damage, destroying one of North Korea's premier air defense facility  at Musadan-ri, Kittaeryöng, Kalgol-dong, Panghyon Airport, Okp' yōng-dong, Pongdong and and Chia-ri.
Two B-2s, based on Diego Garcia, are also believed to participated in the attack.
According to latest intelligence reports, Chinese missiles have already destroyed Sakkonmol Missile Operating Base and Sil-Li.
At a briefing following the raids, the Commander of the Indo-Pacific Command, Admiral Samuel Paparo , referred to the raid, "...as sufficiently successful, that we've rendered the ability of any actors within the North Korean military command structure to cause any more destruction".
Pilots inavolved in the Air assaults, report that air defense activity was neglible to non-existent at best.



 
Footage of explosions caused by aircraft involved in the aerial attack on selected targets in North Korea.

DEFENSE SECRETARY KENNETH BRAITHWAITE,
INDICATES MORE AIR ASSAULTS WILL BE NECESSARY
: In his daily briefing, Kenneth Braithwaite admitted, "....While we did manage to destroy most of the targets, it will be necessary to authorize more air assaults, but so far we are encouraged.."



The Defense Secretary, expanded on this particular point, "...By eliminating the use of those bases, used to attack either Seoul or Yokota, our air assets have greatly diminished North Korea Jihad to create terror, however we need to ensure that this group no longer represents a danger to anyone else..."

INTELLIGENCE SOURCES INDICATE THAT NORTH KOREA HAD STOCKPILES OF WMD...MEANING BOTH BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL WEAPONS : Sources within both the British and U.S. Intelligence community are now confirming that Kim Jong-Un possessed both biological and chemical weapons. "If this is true, then the President has no alternative but to commit ground forces and other assets into North Korea!" Remarked, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) , "He now has no choice...we have to ensure that North Korea Jihad are removed permanently..." Added Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) .

WHITE HOUSE HAS NOW CONFIRMED THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL GIVE A FORMAL ADDRESS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE : With the North Korean crisis eclipsing almost everything else on the President's agenda, White House Communications Director,  Christina Pushaw , has confirmed in a statement, "That the President will now address the American people on the North Korean crisis, from the Oval office of the White House, on Monday  April 14, 2025, to outline the nature of the crisis and to inform the nation on how the crisis will be tackled"

IT IS CRITICAL THAT WE SECURE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER IN LIGHT OF WHAT IS OCCURRING IN KOREA: Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a joint statement on behalf of he and Senator  Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) , "With what we've discovered about how North Korea Jihad were able travel into and basically live in a closed society such as North Korea for so long, we need to guard against such a possibility in our country, that is now another reason why the 2025 Border Security  Act needs to be enacted and enforced, to prevent other terrorist group's having free passage into the United States...". However there was pushback  from Senator Alex Padilla (D-CA), who stated, "It is egregious and political opportunism at its worse, the way that Senator  Rubio , is using the North Korean crisis to score political points, we have an obligation to stand with the President". Senator Daniel Cameron (R-KY) , responded to Padilla's statement, offered a retort, "...Isn't this the same Senator Padilla who voted against the Yokota Joint Congressional Resolution? Yep, it sounds like he did, but to hear Padilla now, you'd swear that the guy was the President's biggest supporter on everything, yet nothing could be further from the truth...wrong on the border, wrong on Yokota and definitely wrong for California..."

DEFENSE SECRETARY, SPELLS OUT "BOOTS ON THE GROUND" IS A LAST RESORT!: Defense Secretary, Kenneth Braithwaite , was questioned by the Press as he departed the Pentagon for the White House, and suggested, "That boots on the ground, is a last resort, if we find that it is necessary to engage North Korea Jihad more directly, then we shall, the President will consider all his options, and while inserting ground forces is not being entertained, it can't be ruled out. If we find it is necessary to do so, we may have to..."

BIPARTISANSHIP IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY: In separate statements, released by all 5 former President's from Bill Clinton, to Barack Obama and Joe Biden , joined George W. Bush and Donald Trump, basically pledged their support to the current occupant of the Oval office, stating that "The President has our full and unwavering support". As for the President's opponent in the last election, Kamala Harris , was silent on the matter,  apart from the words, "Of course I support the president at this time",  but she criticized Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) , "..for inserting border security politics in the middle of an international crisis, as there really is urgency to secure the border".

NORTH KOREA MEDIA: SENIOR GOVTM STAFF KILLED IN ATTACK YESTERDAY; PRESIDENT KIM JONG-UN ALIVE BUT IN VERY CRITICAL CONDITION AND HAS BEEN FLOWN INTO A MEDICAL CENTER NEAR BEIJING, CHINA AT THE REQUEST OF PRESIDENT XI
Disturbing News out of North Korea this Morning have confirmed World Leaders worst fears. Senior Staff of the North Korean Government has been killed in the attack yesterday on the Presidential Palace. President Kim Jong-Un is still alive but in very critical conditions and has been flown to a Medical Center near Beijing, China at the request of China President Xi Jingping.

NORTH KOREA JIHAD CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR PRESIDENTIAL PALACE ATTACK
A Spokesperson of the North Korea Jihad Group claimed Responsibility for the attack on the North Korea Presidential Palace Attack. "We gave President Kim an Ultimatum to leave the Country which he did not met". Our objectives are being met the Spokesperson said despite heavy bombardements.

CHINA INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS: WE BELIEVE NORTH KOREA JIHAD HAS GAINED ACCESS TO ABOUT 85 % OF THE COUNTRIES MILLITARY ARSENAL
According to a Report by the Xinhua News Agency China Intelligence Officials believe that the North Korea Jihad Group has Access to about 85 % of the Countries Millitary arsenal. We wished that Western World Leaders had done something earlier. The Response came a little bit too late.
Intelligence Officals also say that there have been massive Sabotage Acts within the North Korean Millitary with many supporting the Jihad Group in exchange for Financial Beneficies. We believe Jihad has been financed out of the Arab World. It's still puzzling that they managed to go undetected for 15 years.

MEANWHILE IN THE UNITED STATES...
A Bipartisan Group of House & Senate Members have urged President DeSantis to put TROOPS ON THE GROUD. This is becoming unavoidable one Member of Congress, who doesn't want to be named said.
We can't just eradict North Korea Jihad with Air Strikes. That has become improbable another Lawmaker said.

DURING THE DAILY WHITE HOUSE PRESS BRIEFING...
White House Press Secretary KAYLEIGH MCENANY said President DeSantis Visit to Mexico to speak with Mexican President Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo will likely be pushed into May given the ongoing North Korea Crisis.

FRIDAY APRIL 11 2025

OVERNIGHT BOMBING CAMPAIGN YIELDS MORE SUCCESS FOR U.S.
There was more overnight aerial bombardment of more North Korean missile sites, the most severe damage inflicted, according to Intelligence sources, were at the following locations of Pukchang, Panghyon,  Kusong and Changang - where there's a vast majority of weapons factories and nuclear weapon facilities. Most of the air assaults were conducted by F/A-18E/F_Super_Hornets and F-35 Lightning II aircrafts.

U.S. INTELLIGENCE SOURCES INDICATE, NORTH KOREA POSSESSES WMD: Besides Nuclear weapon capacity, U.S. Intelligence now indicate that other WMD weapons possessed by North Korea, include both Biologiccal and Chemical weapons, "One thing for certain, is we don't want North Korea Jihad obtaining such weapons, so we have to put them beyond their reach", stated Chris Stewart , Director of National Intelligence, who appeared before the Senate Select Committee On Intelligence, "Haven't we been down this road before? I mean didn't a previous administration make similar claims, in the lead up to the Iraq War?" queried Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) , "...Yes we have Senator, but I can safely say that we always had an idea that Kim Jong-Un was in fact funding and authorizing the development of such weapons, he however was a known actor, however, we don't want this group, North Korea Jihad being in the position to use them, they are the unknown factor and that, we can all agree is a nightmare". scenario". Following the testimony of Director Stewart , speaking before the press, Wyden , "I will say this, inasmuch that I do have fundamental disagreements with the President on a wide range of issues, however, what I heard today, scares me and many others as well, and what I'm saying now,  is we need in fact to escalate militarily and eliminate North Korea Jihad"

KIM JONG-UN IN COMA , the North Korean leader, is reported to be now is in a coma in a Beijing, Hospital.

Friday April 11 2025
US HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY GIMENEZ: THE COUNTRY WILL BE PUT ON SECURITY ALERT LEVEL 3 FOR THE NEXT FOUR TO SIX WEEKS
After meeting with State Department & Intelligence Officials Homeland Security Secretary CARLOS GIMENEZ announced that the United States of America will be put on Security Alert Level 3 for the next four to six weeks which means increased surveillance on Airports, Ports and Border Checkpoints.
This follows a similar procedure what happened after the 9/11 Attacks in September 2001.

„We don't want to take any chances. A lot of stuff is still unknown when it comes to the North Korea Jihad Group. They have been living in North Korea undetected for fifteen years. We have no guarantee that some of them may or may not have made their way into the US and could be hiding here. Remember before 9/11 when the vast Majority of the Hijackers were living in the US for over six months.“

KARL ROVE, DANA PERINO ON FOX NEWS: SITUATION IN NORTH KOREA WAY MORE COMPLICATED COMPARED TO AFGHANISTAN 2001 OR IRAQ 2003 GIVEN THAT NORTH KOREA POSSESSES NUCLEAR MATERIAL
Speaking on FOX NEWS „AMERICA REPORTS“ with Sandra Smith & John Roberts former White House Deputy Chief of Staff under President George W. Bush Karl Rove and former WH Press Secretary under the Bush Presidency Dana Perino said the Situation is North Korea is „Not comparable to 2001 Afghanistan or 2003 Iraq given that NK has nuclear material & biological weapons“. Rove quipped „if some of that stuff gets out we could face a humanitarian nuclear crisis three or four times worse than Chernobyl. Remember Sandra when we all talked about Russia/Ukraine in 2022 fighting over a nuclear power plant with shelling and other artillery and the world said sort of STOP FIGHTING over that. This could be much worse if someting blows up in NK“. Dana Perino quizzed „I can understand the Presidents caution. Maybe the Chinese will help us out“.

SINEMA, CRENSHAW HIT BACK AT HARRIS, DEFEND RUBIO'S REMARKS
Senators Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona) and Dan Cranshaw (R-Texas) have hit back at former VP Harris for criticizing Senator Rubios Border Remarks. The two Senators released a Joint Statement:

„Senator Rubio sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Cmte and has genuine concerns for our Nations Security. Former VP Harris has no right to criticize the Florida Senator when she made that laughable remark at the DMZ in South Korea in 2022 and said that North Korea is our ally“.

DEMOCRATS AREN'T SINGING FROM SAME HYMN SHEET!, Onetime strategist for former President Bill Clinton, slammed former Vice President Kamala Harris , over her comments in which she criticized Senator Marco Rubio , over concerns he had on Border security, James Carville ,  known as the 'Ragin Cajun' spoke in very colorful terms, referring to the former Vice President, "...I have a suggestion for Kamala Harris , she needs to butt out! Period! Her criticism especially with the Korean problem bubbling away, tells me enough about this woman, she's completely tone deaf politically and personally just plum clueless...she lost to Ron DeSantis , for a pretty darn good reason...because she's a lousy politician and is a complete phony!"

INTELLIGENCE SOURCES NOW CONFIRM THAT REGULAR NORTH KOREAN PEOPLE'S ARMY UNITS ENGAGED IN COMBAT WITH NORTH KOREA JIHAD MILITIA, PYONGYANG HAS DESCENDED INTO URBAN WARZONE: South Korea and U.S. intelligence Sources are reporting that regular North Korea People's Army units are now engaged in ferocious combat against the North Korea Jihad militia.

Meanwhile, will be interesting to see what kind of international response in regards to South Korea has emerged, particularly from the purview of peace. I can imagine all kinds of social media filters in the mold of #PrayForKorea and #PeaceForKorea, hope of a unified Korea, etc. emerging as both the radicals in North Korea as well as the U.S. and China are coming together to fight a radical jihadist sect. Will also be interesting to see how DeSantis broaches this matter in regards to the Muslim vote, particularly given the radical shift of the Muslim vote after 9/11, having gone from 60 percent for George W. Bush in 2000 to overwhelmingly in favor of John Kerry in 2004.

As for Harris, wow...The Democrats will have to ditch their woke wing if they have any chance of making gains in 2026 and 2028. If Congress did in fact authorize military strikes in response to Yokota and a credible terror cell is lurking in North Korea, then Harris deserves to be expelled to the fringes of the political sphere. Americans don't want endless wars, but even Reagan and Trump had short-term military excursions in the name of national security. The ultra-Code Pink mentality, a la Jeannette Rankin, certainly doesn't bode well in this matter, and it wouldn't surprise me if Harris merely came of age politically because of the rabid opposition to the War in Iraq and War on Terror on the left that vaulted Obama into the White House nearly two decades ago. (Many on the right eventually came to oppose it as well, but I don't think becoming radical peaceniks that oppose any kind of foreign intervention or treaties was the M.O. they sought all along.)

Lastly, what does Donald Trump think of this move, and what does Tucker Carlson have to say as well given their opposition to endless wars? Certainly the GOP has to walk a fine line between advocating for a strong national defense and not backpedaling into the sort of neoconservative "war at all costs" mentality that repulsed many Americans in the long run.

@SaintStan86, I think if Trump raises his head above the parapet, with regards to North Korea's descent into anarchy, I think even he can't be so wrapped up in the fiction, in which his outreach to Kim Jong-Un yielded only marginal results and not all of them good. Trump's precious summit photo  ops won't have aged well in light of what has so far occurred, even he surely understands inaction would be disastrous. As for Tucker Carlson, he must recognize in light of what is now occurring, DeSantis simply has no choice. I don't think beyond the moment of clarity over Yokota and the chaos to which North Korea has descended into, Democrats have changed, its politically expedient to support DeSantis, and only as long as political convenience allows; see how quickly Padilla, Warren and the squad were thrown under the bus. As for Harris, her Anti-Border security stance, is not a good position to embrace, if she's trying to regain political relevance. I now think because Border security is either off the table or deemed less important, Harris will get this idea in her head, that since North Korea Jihad is the new bright shiny object, she can now look at the Governorship of California as a better prospect. However considering how Harris's political touch is questionable at the best of times, I see her getting screwed the way Pat Brown screwed Nixon in 1962. I am thinking what an exquisite way to end one's political future prospects. I think DeSantis overall objective is to ensure that North Korea Jihad doesn't have nuclear weapons capability or that the WMD are no longer of concern and that Jihad doesn't have access to them. Beyond that, North Korea doesn't concern him.

@SaintStan86,
DeSantis has no choice then to eradict North Korea Jihad once and for all. It's going to be a long few months.
With the NK Govtm almost non-existent Jihad is probably likely going to get control over Pongyang for a short term until US, Chinese and South Korean Troops arrive.
President DeSantis & President Xi will realize "Heck, we actually need each other in this crisis" to solve this.
Once this is over there will likely be a Historic Peace Deal between South Korea, North Korea and China with other Asian Countries pledging to rebuilt NK and the Country having a Democratic Government.
The Pacific Treaty Organization will be established which is why I installed Morgan Ortagus as State Department Spokesperson given her & former Secretary of State Pompeos Record when it came to the Abraham Accords etc.

As far as Political Ramifications: It already cost Democrats FL-28 as the Crisis has put it beyond reach. It will have an impact in VA and NJ which I will outline in polling coming up this weekend on NBC. It will have an impact in 2026 and 2028 in certain areas.

@2016, all I can say is ditto, you pretty much said it all. I think especially with the ramifications for NK having a negative impact on the Democratic brand in the near term (Ciatarelli in New Jersey and Sears in Virginia will most certainly capitalize on NK, by painting their Democratic as personally culpable for being weak on Border security and secretly aligned with North Korea Jihad. As for the midterms 12 months later, you can bet immigration reform will be the big ticket item and the RNC , will likely use immigration as a wedge issue and link it to Border security. As for North Korea, China will insist that it  becomes a non aligned as Finland and Austria were. Especially if it becomes Democratic, other than that, I agree China and US will have to work together, however the Taiwan will have to be resolved and China may have to relinquish its claims on Island.

U.S. & SOUTH KOREAN INTELLIGENCE SOURCES ARE CONFIRMING HEAVY DAMAGE TO NORTH KOREA'S MISSILE MANUFACTURING INFRASTRUCTURE It was confirmed by sources in both the  CIA and South Korea's own Central  Intelligence Agency that F-18 and B-2 Bombers, participated in more overnight aerial assaults on North Korea's Missile manufacturing and launch infrastructures, with Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific research Center in North Yongbyon province, Namchon Chemical Complex in Pyongsan and Yongbyon Nuclear Fuel Rod Fabrication Plant which according to South Korean Intelligence, was estimated to have approximately 4,000 centrifuges, all sustaining the heaviest damage.  A Pentagon spokesman, in remarks during the latest briefing, "....Our aerial assaults, have yielded an outcome which ensures that North Korea's capacity to engage in any further offensive targeting of population center's, we intend to render Borth Korea Jihad with zero capacity to create terror!".



Meanwhile as the aerial assaults continue, North Korea's army continue to battle armed elements of North Korea Jihad, most of the fighting was concentrated within Pyongyang's city limits.

GEORGIA ON OUR MIND, SENATOR JON OSSOFF WILL LIKELY FACE LT. GOVERNOR GEOFF DUNCAN: Another contest that has national implications for the Democrats as incumbent Senator Jon Ossoff faces reelection next year, and with the state's current Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan , preparing to launch a campaign to challenge Ossoff , it's hardly a surprise, considering how Duncan has been campaigning around Georgia in recent weeks. It was generally assumed that Duncan might seek the Governorship instead, as current Governor Brian Kemp is term-limited; however  Duncan hasn't specifically given any indication as of yet, on what office he might seek next year

Manchester, New Hampshire, Saturday April 12 2025
After a 30-year Career in Politics Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen announced her Retirement this Morning in Manchester, New Hampshire. Shaheen was elected as Governor of New Hampshire in 1996 and was briefly considered as a potential Vice Presidential Running Mate for then Vice President Al Gore after winning Re-Election as Governor in 1998. Shaheen lost to Congressman John E. Sununu in 2002 in the aftermath of the 9/11 Attacks, where Republicans made gains in the House & Senate.
Shaheen then beat Senator Sununu in the 2008 Obama landslide and got subsequently reelected in 2014 and 2020.
Shaheens Retirement marks the first Official Senate Retirement of the 2026 Election Cycle.
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu is widely expected to enter the Race giving Republicans a Prime Pick Up Opportunity in the Upper Chamber.
As for the Democrats one name that is being floated is the Senators' Daughter Stefany Shaheen. Other Democrats who might be looking at the Race are former Congressman Chris Pappas, former Congresswoman Ann Kuster, 2018' Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee Molly Kelly & 2016 Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee Colin van Ostern.

San Francisco, California, Saturday April 12 2025
Congresswoman Young Oak Kim and Congressman Mike Garcia, having been endorsed by President DeSantis at the Annual Republican Governors Association General Meeting last month held a Campaign Kick-Off Event in San Francisco, California vowing to restore Opportunity and Sanity to the Golden State.

Kim remarked:
„It's not an accident that Mike & myself holding our Campaign Kickoff here in the City of San Francisco. Too many Democratic Politicians came out of here and instead of working for all the people of this great worked for some tiny elites. I call it the San Francisco Democratic Cartel. When I am Governor I will work for all the people of California.
I also want to mention the situation in North Korea and the Korean Peninsula in general. It's horrific. I am proud of my South Korean Heritage and I am here to tell all the Korean People living in this State and the Asian Pacific Islander Community that we all will get through this. Please keep the Korean People in your Prayers.“


Garcia meanwhile sharply criticized former Vice President Kamala Harris for her remarks attacking Senator Marco Rubio and her Border Catastrophe.

Thus far only Xavier Becerra, the former Health & Human Services Secretary under former President Biden has entered the Race for California Governor on the Democratic Side.

SUNDAY APRIL 13 2025


"Good morning, if it's Meet The Press, it's Sunday, I have with me today, Senator's  Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) , they are the Co-Authors of what could be the most consequential piece of legislation to emerge from the Senate in a generation and it deals with Border Security, Senator's welcome to Meet The  Press, Senator Sinema , I'll start with you, a few days ago, you responded to remark made by Former Vice President, Kamala Harris , in which she criticized Senator Rubio on thr border,
(Clip)
Todd : You obviously have a problem the Vice President's statement, and her position on the border, share with us, your thoughts.
Sinema : I would ordinarily agree with Vice  President Harris , but on the border, there are fundamental differences that exist, especially over how she has consistently dismissed or belittled the importance of the problems, and the systemic indifference during her time as Vice President, when she declared that there was no problems down there, I think Chuck, 8.5 million people crossing our southern border illegally can hardly be called as "not a  problem".
Todd : Senator Rubio ?
Rubio : Chuck, the issue of a border that we share with another country for nearly 2,000 miles were we have institutional failure is beyond the pale, the same standards at all our recognized ports of entry, are not and have not been met at the southern border, so much so, it is a national joke, and when Kyrsten says 8.5 million migrants are crossing our southern border, she is being too kind.
Todd : A follow up question Senator, a fellow  Floridian, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Carlos Gimenez , last week ordered a tightening of security levels at all airports and other points of entry, it must be presumed that the urgency you cite for ramping up security along the Southern border to be commensurate with those reasons made by Secretary  Gimenez .
Rubio : It is Chuck, unless anyone has been living in a cave, what has occurred in North Korea over the last couple of day's, plus the emergence of North Korea Jihad, to be an actor that could use terrorist methods, especially in our country on a par  with or worse than 9/11, that is why we need to fast track security at our southern border, I recommend that the President use executive action, that reflects the key points of our bill, and I urge anyone who shares our concerns to go to the Border Security website and anyone can see how our recommendations are common sense.
Todd : Senator Sinema ,, the differences between you and many of your party colleagues, is as clear as night and day. Is Border Security the only area of difference?
Sinema : Chuck let's just stay focused on Border security, its something that both Senator's Bennet , as well as Hickenlooper , Kelly and Lujan , know about first hand and if we are able to secure our southern border and address the appalling inequities within our Immigration system, and stop using these two national concerns as political cudgels.
Todd : Senator's thank you for sharing your Subday. We will be right back with our panel for discussion and analysis.
(Break)
Todd : Welcome back to Meet The Press, and with me is our panel, former Speechwriter, Peggy Noonan, Political analyst Scott Jennings,   Amy Walter Editor-in-chief Cook Political Report,  Author and political editor for the New York Times, Maggie Haberman.
Welcome all, Peggy I'd like to start with the President's upcoming speech, he's about to identify our involvement in what is fast becoming a messy military conflict, what does he need to do?
Noonan : I think the president will do what he has done so far done, and communicated his thoughts in his unique way, Ronald Reagan had his own way of communicating to the American people, as did George W. Bush and of course  Barack Obama , and since he has come into office, President DeSantis , has demonstrated a similar ability.
Todd : Amy Walter, the data download illustrates the Democratic problem especially in New Jersey and Virginia, are these problems an aberration or something more serious?
Walter : When I look at those numbers, it tells me that their brand is being hurt by perceptions and unfortunately for Democrats , perception becomes the reality, also as often as Kamala Harris , keeps putting her head above the parapet, it's a reminder and a political unhealthy one at that.
Todd : Scott Jennings you're nodding there, your thoughts.
Jennings : The old saying that you don't get a second chance to create a first impression still applies and that polling data, if I'm a Democrat , I'm worried, at every step the president has simply out maneuvered them and even by supporting the President over North Korea and the Yokota Resolution, hurts them, as their own base is turned off and now this.
Todd : Maggie Haberman, you covered  Donald Trump and now Ronald Dion DeSantis , differences and similarities?
Haberman : Trump , represented a whole different standard, and I think Ron DeSantis has skills honed from over a decade in the political arena, plus that he has forged a coalition, which combines the MAGA, Republican , Independents and disaffected Democrats,  plus his discipline in pushing his agenda, shows a single mindedness that Trump never seemed to develop or harness, in other words, he can channel Trump , without having to being Trump (Laughter).
Todd : That's all we  have for today, but terrific pane through out the  show, thank you for watching, we'll  be back  next week,  because if it's Sunday, It's Meet The Press.

WHITE HOUSE HAS ANNOUNCED THAT PRESIDENT WILL VISIT EUROPE IN LATE MAY , The White House has announced that President DeSantis will travel to Europe following his visit to Mexico, where he will meet President Claudia Scheinbaum Pardo. The President then will visit Spain, Poland, Lithuania (For the NATO summit) and Turkey and then will visit Canada (for the annual G7 summit).

Sunday April 13 2025
ON THE OTHER SUNDAY SHOWS...
FOX NEWS SUNDAY WITH SHANNON BREAM beyond having Secretary of Defense Kenneth Braithwaite also had a Panel of Marie Harf, former Spokesperson of the State Department under President Obama, Kimberly Strassel, Editor of the Wall Street Journal, Josh Kraushaar and Guy Benson on the Show where President DeSantis Oval Office Address to the Nation was previewed.

ABC „THIS WEEK“ WITH GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS & CHRIS CHRISTIE
also had Defense Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite on the Show where the Secretary explained that the UNITED STATES & CHINA are working on a collaboration of a Millitary Ground Operation that would also allow the United States to place two of his Aircraft Carrier Groups, the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT GROUP & the USS GERALD R. FORD GROUP into the Yellow Sea, potentially in Chinese Waters, which has never happened in History but shows the United States & China's Committment to eradict North Korea Jihad. The Roosevelt Group is expected to arrive next week. When Stephanopoulos pressed Braithwaite about the Jihad likely getting control of Pyongyang Braithwaite said „This is likely going to happen as the NK Army is overmatched as many of the Southern Generals in NK switched sides and we or China at the moment do not have Groud Forces in North Korea. I am telling you this though it will only be temporary until China & the United States commence their Millitary Operations which will be one of the biggest you'll ever see. Unlike in the Iraq Wars & Afghanistan it will mainly be an Operation conducted by two Countries who where advisaries not that long ago, United States and China. President XI has realized how big of a Thread NK Jihad is“

CBS „FACE THE NATION“ WITH MARGARET BRENNAN had the Presidents National Security Advisor Dina Powell on the Show where Powell explained that her Job goes well beyond advising the President on International National Security Matters but „My Job is also to protect the Country, our Homeland Margaret so I am working closely together with Secretary Gimenez, the Director of National Intelligence Mr Stewart, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Mr. Ratcliffe and Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Mr Glass and we all made recommodations to Secretary Gimenez to tighten the Entry into the United States with increased surveillance on Airports, Ports and Border Entry Checkpoints given the current Situation we're in.“

CNN „STATE OF THE UNION“ WITH JAKE TAPPER had Secretary of State Robert O'Brien on the Show where he explained the Negotiations with various Partners in Asia when it comes to airspace, shipping lanes, etc. and that the State Department kind of acts as a Link between the Presidents National Security Team and the Department of Defense.
O'Brien thanked his Team at the State Department and his Chinese Counterparts for coming together. He said President DeSantis will outline more specifics about the United States/China Millitary Operation in his Address to the Nation tomorrow Night.

MONDAY APRIL 14 2025 :

TWO FORMER SECRETARIES OF STATE, CITE FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCES ON PRESIDENT'S UPCOMING SPEECH TONIGHT

Former Secretary of State, Condi Rice, suggested that President DeSantis , "...could frame his speech to shape a foreign policy doctrine". However another former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo , had a different view, "The President is merely attempting to intervene in a crisis and once it's addressed, it's done...it's not a means to announce a foreign policy shift or calling this intervention as the DeSantis Doctrine.

DEPLOYMENT OF GROUND FORCES ALREADY UNDERWAY,  AS USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT CARRIER GROUP MOVES INTO YELLOW SEA.
Defense Secretary, Kenneth Braithwaite , during his daily briefing at the Pentagon was asked about the speed of the deployment of ground forces, and how it was planned?", the Defense Secretary responded, "When we plan and prepare for any military operation, it is necessary to plan for any and all contingencies out of an abundance of caution, the President, when he receives a range of options, that's exactly what he gets!"

Monday April 14 2025
ON CNN: BOTH, FOMER SECRETARY OF STATE UNDER PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH CONDOLEEZA RICE & FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE UNDER PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP MIKE POMPEO SHARPLY CRITICIZED FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI FOR LIMITING PRESIDENTIAL POWERS AFTER THE SOLEIMANI ATTACK IN 2020
On CNN's „THE LEAD“ with Jake Tapper former Secretary of State under George W. Bush Condoleeza Rice and former Secretary of State under Donald J. Trump Mike Pompeo sharply criticized former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in revoking Presidential Emergency Powers in the aftermath of the QASEM SOLEIMANI attack in 2020. „It looked like this wasn't a big Deal but in hindsight Jake that was a massive mistake by the House Democrats back then. Our Response to this North Korea Crisis could have been much more quicker if President DeSantis still had those Emergency Powers which came from the PATRIOT ACT we passed after 9/11“.
Pompeo added „I agree with Secretary Rice. I never quite understood what Democrats did back then because it only weakened our National Security“.

Rice calls on the PATRIOT ACT to be revisited as both praise President DeSantis & Vice President Haleys Leadership.

CNN Congressional Correspondent Jessica Dean during the CNN AFTERNOON NEWSROOM made known to the the Network that House Speaker Steve Scalise is considering holding a vote to repeal the War Power Resolution passed by the then Democratic-controlled House on January 9th 2020 in the aftermath of the Qasem Soleimani Attack amid the current North Korea Crisis.

ON FOX NEWS: REP. MICHELLE STEEL "I'M GLAD RON DESANTIS IS PRESIDENT AND NOT KAMALA HARRIS"
During the 2nd Hour of „AMERICA REPORTS“ with Sandra Smith California Congresswoman Michelle Park Steel, who considered her own Run for California Governor, before Young Kim jumped into the Race and has a Korean Heritage as well offered a rebuke to former Vice President Harris defending former House Speaker Pelosi:

„That is just Politics at his finest Sandra. One Member of the San Francisco Cartel defending the other. Let me tell you and your audience here: What the former Speaker of the House did wasn't done on an abundance of caution. It was done out of animosity towards the former President and to hurt him in his 2020 Re-Election Bid. I am glad Ron DeSantis is our President and Nikki Haley our Vice President and not Kamala Harris and Gary Peters. The fact is the former Vice President wouldn't even know how to manage this kind of crisis we are now having in North Korea“.

DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKER WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE NAMED...
„I wish former Vice President Harris would just keep quiet and not comment on everything that is happening at the moment. She is hurting our brand“.

FORMER TRUMP NSC ADVISOR LEVELS HARSH CRITICISM AT FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI :  John Bolton Former NSC advisor to Trump and Ambassador to the United Nations, under George W.  Bush , leveled criticism at Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi , for the legislation she helped enact on the heels of the orders issued  by former President Trump's , to eliminate Soleimani in January, 2020. Bolton in his remarks on Fox & Friends, stated, "She (Pelosi had what was known as Trump Derangement Syndrome, and her actions regarding the legislation she sponsored to remove the authority that the president needs in his arsenal to ensure the safety and security of our nation was nothing but irresponsible and extremely dangerous,  I urge Speaker Scalise to rescind this legislative abomination. It was enacted purely out of spite, one more effort to delegitimize a President"

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT, DEFENDS PELOSI ACTIONS : Former Vice President, Kamala Harris , was quick to respond to John Bolton's criticism of former House Speaker Pelosi,  "...What the Speaker did in 2020, was done out of an abundance of caution, and considering how he (Trump held up foreign aid to Ukraine, in a political stunt to hurt a potential opponent (Biden), there was a good reason that he (Trump), ordering the assassination of a member of a foreign government (Iran for political purposes, so Speaker Pelosi , did what she was required to do, Trump couldn't be trusted on anything! I'm disappointed in how Mr. Bolton , is willing to defend Trump over reckless actions, maybe he's running for office or something!"

Hi this is Bret Baier here in Washington, we are a few moments away from the President's address to the nation on the North Korean crisis, a crisis that has evolved from what appeared to be an isolated missile attack on Yokota in Japan, nearly a month ago, since then there has been a deepening of this crisis and with the emergence of a militant Muslim group known as North Korea Jihad. The president's speech tonight, which is due to be delivered from the Oval office in a few moments. I have Pete Doocy standing by,  at the White  House, Peter what can we expect tonight.
Doocy : Hi Bret, well from my vantage point, the Oval office is ground zero at this moment, the President from what I have so far heard, has been making changes and revision to the speech we will hear tonight. Bret, I am getting a two minute warning as we approach the nine o'clock hour, back to you Bret.
Baier : Thank you Peter, I have with me, this evening, Presidential historian Michael Beschloss, Political analyst Britt Hume, Editor-in-chief of the Cook Political Report, Amy Walter and Karl Rove, everyone welcome, we are a minute a way, so rejoin us on the other side, after the speech.

Good evening my fellow Americans.
This is the first time for me to address you from this room, to do so, indicates this is a moment of high importance and a time for reflection.

As you will already know, that little over three weeks ago, North Korea perpetrated the unthinkable, by launching a Pukguksong-3 missile which made landfall near the city of Yokota in Japan.
The result was untold death and destruction.
As Developments now reveal, the command authority within that country has now been compromised or worse removed by a group identified as North Korea Jihad.
Since the missile attacks on Yokota and subsequently on Seoul, in South Korea, It is now unclear who directs the affairs of North Korea.
What is clear, is this terrorist group targeted the Presidential palace using 3 cruise missiles to essentially destroy that building, the result was either serious injury or death.
We now know that North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-Un was amongst the many injured,  and. currently he is being hospitalized in Beijing, China.
It is recognized historically that North Korea has sought to secure nuclear readiness, and it's ongoing testing program, demonstrated this fact.
It has become abundanty clear, that because this country still possesses not only Weapons of mass destruction, but the potential to deploy nuclear weapons as well, and therefore, the United States cannot permit this state of affairs to continue unresolved.
Due to the facts, I have already outlined, we in conjunction with China will execute a plan to eliminate these weapons, once and for all, as they and the group named North Korean Jihad, are a clear and present danger to the international community.
As you already know, that under the powers granted to me as commander in chief, as well as the provisions of the Yokota Joint Congressional Resolution, I have already authorized air operations against North Korea.
However as events have so far revealed, it will now be necessary to escalate our combat operations in this troubled region and therefore the commitment of ground forces is now required.
The resolution of the North Korean crisis will have three stages.
The first stage will be the quarantine and occupation of North Korea.
The second state will be the decapitation of North Korean Jihad.
The third and final stage will be the seizure of all testing and manufacturing facilties. The objective will be the elimination of all biological, chemical and nuclear material.
Let me make this clear to all who are watching tonight, the deployment of our ground forces, will be for the sole purpose of eliminating North Korea Jihad and ensuring that any offensive biological, chemical and nuclear weapon stockpiles are permanently neutralized and ultimately destroyed.
All combat operations will be in coordination with Chinese military personnel, and will continue until the situation in North Korea has stabilized.
While these actions are necessary, they are what is represented as a last resort and the North Korean regime, as it is now configured, has to understand that the security and safety of the United States as well as our Asian friends and allies is above all paramount in the final analysis.
We do not seek conflict with the people of North Korea, but rather that they can find peace, prosperity and ultimately security.
In closing, what occurred in Japan three weeks was totally unacceptable and a wake up call for all of us, and one which can never be repeated, thank you and God bless the United States.

Hi this is Bret Baier, well what we just heard, was the President making it clear that until all Biological, chemical or Nuclear weapons are not only removed, but destroyed, that North Korea will not only be quarantined, but essentially under occupation and only when North Korea Jihad is not just decapitated, but eliminated, shall North Korea be once again in control of their affairs. Michael Beschloss, your thoughts?
Beschloss : As President's go, this is one, who doesn't hesitate in using very direct, but forceful in his communication style. I noted how he made clear that the United States has no quarrel with the North Korean people, he was showing a conciliatory tone towards North Korea, but firmly stating the goal of the United States was to eliminate all weapons that North Korea has in its arsenal, but also making clear that North Korea Jihad will not be allowed to function or exist.
