September 22nd Juche 108 (2019) marks the 70th death anniversary of Comrade Kim Jong Suk, peerless anti-Japanese war heroine, mother of socialist Korea, and comrade-wife of President Kim Il Sung.

Comrade Kim Jong Suk was born into a humble working family in Hoeryong (North Hamgyong Province) but from an early age joined the revolutionary anti-imperialist struggle against the Japanese empire.

As part of the Anti-Japanese People’s Guerrilla Army, commanded by General Kim Il Sung, she achieved renown for her ardent dedication to the liberation of Korea from Japanese occupation, distinguishing herself as a great partisan and skilled markswoman.

She would later be assigned as General Kim Il Sung’s bodyguard.

After the liberation of Korea, Comrade Kim Jong Suk guided the revolutionary and progressive women of Korea against feudalism, opportunism, and factionalism through building the Democratic Women’s Union of Korea. She worked tirelessly to improve women’s lives and to free them from the shackles of feudalism. Comrade Kim Jong Suk also took an active role in developing the people’s armed forces of Juche Korea.

In the 8th volume of “With the Century (Kim Il Sung’s autobiography) he stated,

It may be said that Kim Jong Suk devoted all her life to me. Even after marrying me, she considered me as Commander, Premier and as the foremost leader. The relationship between her and me was that between the leader and the led, between comrades. She always said she was a soldier of the leader. She never addressed  me in familiar terms; she only said “General” or “Comrade Premier”.

“I still frequently recollect her. She wore chima (the traditional Korean skirt) and jogori (the traditional Korean jacket for women) for several years.For some reason, however, it is more often in military uniform than civilian attire that she appears in my mind’s eye, mostly shivering from cold, as she did when she came to me with my clothes she had dried in her bosom.


It is still heartrending for me to remember how she looked.

[September 5 Juche 108 (2019) KCNA]

Some time ago, Ted Cruz, senator of the U.S., dared to slander the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.


His mud-slinging is a politically-motivated provocation to the DPRK as
it represented the perspective of the conservative lawmakers on the
DPRK, not just his own personal view.


His remarks made at an acute time when the DPRK-U.S. dialogue is in a
stalemate and nobody is sure whether the situation will keep going on
the path of detente or go back to the origin of confrontation are,
indeed, very dangerous ones just like adding fuel to the flames.


As a descendent of a renegade who fled his motherland Cuba, Cruz took
the lead in branding the former U.S. administration’s plan to recover
the relations with Cuba as a “tragic mistake”. When a resolution
demanding the lift of the U.S. blockade against Cuba passed the UN
General Assembly session by an overwhelming majority in October 2016,
the human scum asserted that the policy on sanctions on Cuba must remain
a must policy and law of the U.S.


When he was competing for the presidency on the Republican ticket in
2016, he spouted the rhetoric that the nuclear pact with Iran
dramatically damages the interests of the U.S. and that if he becomes
president, he would immediately mount a military attack on Iran, only to
be called a war maniac.


When there occurred a terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium in March
2016, he called for immediately stopping the plan of receiving evacuees
from Syria, while treating Muslims as “criminals” and also called for
tightening patrol and guard in the Islamic settlements, only to be
branded as a radical racist in the U.S. political circle.

On July 25th 1950 after several months of border skirmishes between the Korean People’s Army and anti-communist guerrillas backed by u.$. puppet Syngman Rhee
the conflict escalated into an all-out war when the Republic of Korea’s Army invaded and seized a disputed border village – a few days later the KPA would mount a counter-attack and push south to liberate Korea from u.$. imperialism and the brutal tyrannical regime of
u.$

puppet
Syngman Rhee.

Once the war broke out, imprisoned activists painted as “Northern collaborators” were massacred, leaving 150,000 dead.

While the u.$. claims no responsibility for having started the war, six days before the outbreak
u.$. President Truman’s envoy John Foster Dulles visited the front-lines.
in the early hours of the June 25th, 650 amerikan women and children were evacuated from south Korea. In fact the Korean War had been ordered by u.$ national security council nº68 issued on April 1950, two months before the Korean War began.

Losing the war, u.$. puppet
Syngman Rhee

turned to u.$. imperialists who came to Korea to wage a war of genocide. At least 1.2 million people in the DPRK were murdered, victims of mass bombing campaigns involving both biological and chemical warfare. Cities were completely destroyed, civilians endured massacre after massacre, rape, looting, and weaponised diseases such as the plague.

65th anniversary of the Korean People’s Victory in the Fatherland Liberation War against u.$. imperialism 

On July 27th 1953, the u.$. imperialist aggressors knelt down and signed the Korean Armistice Agreement which signified the victory of the Korean people in the Fatherland Liberation War.

u.$. General Mark Clark who signed the agreement for the u.$. could only conclude “I gained the unenviable distinction of being the first United States Army Commander in history to sign an armistice without a victory.”

The u.$.’s own narrow and curtailed statistics for its losses in the war showed it lost nearly the same number in 3 years in Korea than it did in 10 years in Vietnam .

Overall the u.$. imperialists lost over : 1,567,128 men including 405,498 US soldiers, 1,130,965 south Korean puppet troops, and 30,665 soldiers of their satellite states were killed, wounded or captured; 12,224 airplanes including “air fortress B-29” were downed, damaged or captured, 7,695 guns, 3,255 233 tanks and armoured cars were lost; and 564 warships and vessels including the heavy cruiser Baltimore and the flagship of the Seventh Fleet Missouri were sunk or damaged. The loss suffered by the u.$. imperialists was nearly 2.3 times greater than what they had suffered in the four years of the Pacific War during World War II. It was an appalling loss and a serious military defeat unprecedented in the u.$. history of war.

The Fatherland Liberation War was a just national liberation war against u.$. imperialism, a victory that couldn’t have happened without the revolutionary leadership and guidance of Generalissimo Kim Ilsung and the ironwilled perseverance of the Korean People’s Army.

Glory to Juche Korea!

We’ve done it, we’ve synthesized makeup feminism with imperialist propaganda

Again another DPRK defector is exploited to perpetuate an imperialist orientalist fantasy so as to justify and maintain a state of hostility from imperialist countries towards the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The refinery29 article quickly exposes its scripted nature when – as an example – it says
there are no exact names for the products in North Korea. Lipsticks are called ‘the thing to paint on lips.

Lipstick in the DPRK is called “ibsul yeonji” (입술연지 — literally lips-red or
lips-rouge). This can easily be found on the packages for lipstick:

Everything else featured on the article is just recycled anti-DPRK propaganda from fashion police to mandatory haircuts, they even cite the LINK organisation which was co-founded by Adrian Hong Chang, an u.$. backed agent who committed an act of terrorism against the DPRK’s embassy in Madrid.

[May 5 Juche 108 (2019) KCNA]

A spokesperson for the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave
the following answer to a question put by KCNA on May 5 as regards the
coup d’état attempt by anti-government forces in Venezuela:


An abnormal incident broke out recently in Venezuela, where internal
anti-government forces attempted a coup d’état to remove the
legitimately elected president.


The latest coup d’état attempt is an extremely dangerous act of violence
that pushes the Venezuelan situation to an utmost instability, having a
highly negative impact on the overall situation in the region.


The situation in Venezuela is being aggravated day by day, because the
internal anti-government forces are launching, with the support of the
outside forces, a campaign against the president from January and the
hostile forces are making undisguised attempt to deprive Venezuela of
its representation in the United Nations.


At the same time, the United States, acting like a “single superpower”,
is making such reckless remarks that a military action is possible with
regard to the Venezuelan situation and the U.S. will carry out that
action if so necessary. These remarks are evoking great concern of the
international community.


We condemn all of the attempts for removing the legitimately elected
president of Venezuela and interfering in its internal affairs as a
challenge to international justice and a flagrant violation of
international law.


We call for a peaceful solution to the Venezuelan issue in accordance
with the independent will and decision of the government and people of
that country and extend invariable support and solidarity to the
Venezuelan people in their struggle for defending sovereignty.

I am wondering if you could explain the Juche Idea to me in a little more depth than what available on the internet. Or perhaps a really good website or video? I know the basics of it, the self reliance to avoid dependence on other countries and to become a strong, self sufficient state, but it sounds better than I thought it would, as a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who subscribes to individuality. Thanks in advance comrade!

Although the first documented mention of Juche is from 1955, the idea itself began taking its roots around 1930 at a meeting of leading personnel of the Young Communist League and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League held in Kalun. President Kim Il Sung – a prominent figure in the revolutionary struggle against the Japanese occupation of Korea – began drafting a series of starting points based on his experience and the lessons learned from the meeting:

  • The master of revolution is the popular masses and revolution can only emerge victorious when they are educated, organised, and mobilised.
  • A revolution should be carried out according to one’s faith and on one’s own responsibility, not with someone’s approval or directive.

  • All problems that arise in the revolution must be handled in an independent, and creative way.

Chairman Kim Jong Il would later develop these into what is known today as the Juche idea. In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea the Juche idea is an ideological extension (or continuation) to Marxism-Leninism that is primarily concerned with the laws of social movement, and the development of socialist ideology under a socialist socio-economic system.

It would be wrong to argue that the Juche idea is the application of Marxism-Leninism to the social and material conditions of the DPRK – rather this was an ideological and philosophical development that was born out of the trials and errors in implementing Marxism-Leninism in the DPRK. With the socialist camp being split apart due to factionalism, great power chauvinism, dogmatism, and revisionism coming from the U.S.S.R., Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il interpreted these as shortcomings (limitations) of Marxism-Leninism in addressing socio-ideological problems that arise in a society under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

The Juche idea can be divided into four principles:

Trump approved payment of $2 million bill for North Korea care of Warmbier: report:

The Post said an invoice was handed to State Department envoy Joseph
Yun hours before Warmbier, 22, was flown out of Pyongyang in a coma on
June 13, 2017. Warmbier died six days later.  

Yun, when asked for comment, said in an email “I cannot comment/confirm on diplomatic exchanges”.

The
U.S. envoy, who was sent to retrieve Warmbier, signed an agreement to
pay the medical bill on instructions passed down from Trump, the Post
reported, citing two unidentified people familiar with the situation.  

“We
do not comment on hostage negotiations, which is why they have been so
successful during this administration,” White House spokeswoman Sarah
Sanders told Reuters.

The bill was sent to the Treasury
Department and remained unpaid through 2017, the Post reported. It was
not known if the administration later paid the bill.

U.S. arrests former Marine connected to North Korea embassy raid in Spain:

juchechat:

Christopher Ahn was arrested on Thursday and appeared on Friday in
federal court in Los Angeles, according to a law enforcement official
and a source close to the group.

In a related development, armed
U.S. federal agents on Thursday raided the apartment of Adrian Hong,
leader of Cheolima Civil Defense, a group seeking the overthrow of North
Korean leader Kim Jong Un that is blamed for the Feb. 22 embassy raid, a
person close to the group said without providing more details. Hong was
not present at his residence when the raid occurred, the source said.

The U.S. Justice Department declined to comment.  

A
group of at least 10 people stormed into the embassy, restrained and
physically beat some personnel and held them hostage for hours before
fleeing, according to a Spanish court.

Spanish investigators have
said the intruders removed computers and hard drives from the embassy
before fleeing to the United States, where they handed over the material
to the FBI.  

A
Spanish judicial source said this week the material had been returned
by Spanish authorities to Pyongyang’s mission after being returned two
weeks previously by the FBI to the Spanish court investigating the raid.
