A backer of Donald Trump has revealed that Iran has secretly invested billions of pounds in North Korea in exchange forkey nuclear weapon intelligence“.

Jesse Jane Duff, a retired US Marine Gunnery Sergeant, said that Iran was circumventing its nuclear agreement with the West by going to North Korea for nuclear intelligence.

This comes as Iran successfully tested a new ballistic missile this morning with a range of 2,000 km (1,200 miles) after it was displayed at a military parade on Friday.

US President Donald Trump announced new sanctions against North Korea this week and Chinese banks have declared that they will stop banking activity with North Korea.

But despite this pressure tactics, key backers of Trump fear that an alliance with Iran could sustain the two powers.

Iran maintains an embassy in Pyongyang and the two countries are said to have close ties.

Speaking to Fox News Business, Mrs Duff said: “Iran has adhered to the specifics of the deal, but they don’t need to do nuclear research themselves since the North Koreans are doing it for them.

North Korea is getting £2bn a year from Iran. They have merchandised their warfare, their chemical weapons and nuclear weapons.

“They are very aggressive with their nuclear technology, and that trade shows how the Iran deal is not working.”

Carl Higbie, a former Navy Seal and a Trump 2020 campaign board member, added: “There is clearly an axis between North Korea and Iran, they are helping each other.”

“They are an extremely dangerous duo and we need to resolve this.”

“But Kim Jong-Un and the Iranians have never seen anyone talk back to them in these terms. We will not accept appeasement of these tyrants.”

Mr Higbie warned President Trump’s first move would be to “shoot down a North Korean missile”.

Earlier this week, former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton said: “I think anything North Korea has Iran can buy, and anything Iran has it can give to North Korea.”

History Warns New York Is The Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

If the past is any indication, New York can be hit by an earthquake, claims John Armbruster, a seismologist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

If the past is any indication, New York can be hit by an earthquake, claims John Armbruster, a seismologist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.Based on historical precedent, Armbruster says the New York City metro area is susceptible to an earthquake of at least a magnitude of 5.0 once a century.

According to the New York Daily News, Lynn Skyes, lead author of a recent study by seismologists at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory adds that a magnitude-6 quake hits the area about every 670 years, and magnitude-7 every 3,400 years.

A 5.2-magnitude quake shook New York City in 1737 and another of the same severity hit in 1884.

Tremors were felt from Maine to Virginia.

There are several fault lines in the metro area, including one along Manhattan’s 125th St. – which may have generated two small tremors in 1981 and may have been the source of the major 1737 earthquake, says Armbruster.

There’s another fault line on Dyckman St and one in Dobbs Ferry in nearby Westchester County.

“The problem here comes from many subtle faults,” explained Skyes after the study was published.

He adds: “We now see there is earthquake activity on them. Each one is small, but when you add them up, they are probably more dangerous than we thought.”

“Considering population density and the condition of the region’s infrastructure and building stock, it is clear that even a moderate earthquake would have considerable consequences in terms of public safety and economic impact,” says the New York City Area Consortium for Earthquake Loss Mitigation on its website.

Armbruster says a 5.0-magnitude earthquake today likely would result in casualties and hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.

“I would expect some people to be killed,” he notes.

The scope and scale of damage would multiply exponentially with each additional tick on the Richter scale.
