Kim Jong Un has accused the U.S. and South Korea of carrying out nuclear military drills. In response to the claim,  Un conducted a test Sunday simulating a nuclear counter attack on the U.S. and South Korea.

These aren’t the first accusations made by Un. On Sunday, tensions escalated after Un launched short range ballistic missiles from North Korea as part of ongoing tests, he said. Those missiles traveled approximately 500 miles, according to reports from South Korea and Japan. Un then went one KCNA, the North Korean State media, telling reporters that the threat of a Nuclear attack on the U.S. and South Korea was likely.

Furthermore, Un claims that testing his short range ballistic missile, helped to improve North Korea’s military capability if there was a need for a counter-offensive in a time of war. He stated that he needed to guarantee the country’s readiness for any “immediate and overwhelming nuclear counterattack.”

Un also claimed that countries such as the U.S. and South Korea “are getting ever more pronounced in their moves for aggression against” his country, according to reports from Fox News. Un said that it is of urgent matter that North Korea needs strengthen its nuclear arsenal in the wake of aggression towards his country.

“The nuclear force of the DPRK will strongly deter, control and manage the enemy’s reckless moves and provocations with its high war readiness, and carry out its important mission without hesitation in case of any unwanted situation,” Kim was quoted as saying.

The Associated Press reported that Jeon Ha Gyu, spokesperson of South Korea’s Defense Ministry, said it’s clear North Korea with its ramped-up testing activity is making “considerable progress” in nuclear weapons technology. According to reports Gyu did not detail any findings on North Korea’s  claim about the successful warhead detonation.

Annual exercises have been carried out for week by the U.S. and South Korea which involve, U.S. B-1B strategic bombers. The B-1B bomber is capable of carrying up to 24 nuclear bombs and can travel at a speed of mach 0.9 while dropping bombs from 200ft above the ground. North Korea claims that these exercises are a very real threat to the country and that is is merely a rehearsal for what they believe to be a full on attack of their country.

With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.

Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.

The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.

In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.

“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.

“In partnership with the business community and the General Assembly, two years ago we set out to make Illinois a destination for electric vehicle and clean energy companies from across the globe,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”

Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.

“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
