State Department Heather Nauert Press Briefing – North Korea Dominates Agenda…

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert delivers the press briefing for August 9th, 2017.  The insufferable media gnats remain fixated on President Trump’s remarks about North Korea – remarks, combined with months of created leverage, that are actually delivering results.

After ignoring all of the action President Trump, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mnuchin, and Secretary Ross have taken to shape the geography; and without even seeing the leverage Trump has positioned on China, Russia and North Korea; the pool reporters are floating questions from a parallel universe called ‘bizarro world’.

Seriously, questions about possibly needing a new “diplomatic direction” are ridiculous against the backdrop of the greatest international diplomatic win in years happening only a few days ago with the 15-0 UNSC unanimous vote on North Korea sanctions.

U.S. journalists are embarrassing.

    Of course, we are perpetually disappointed by our press corps.
    The sanctions, drafted by USA, fit perfectly with what Sundance discussed earlier.
    It’s all about the economics.
    We’ve never seen a US President combine military and economic power like Trump does. It’s glorious to watch.

      • Same here Poker! I clicked on the youtube thingy here on CTH not knowing who she is, and of course I default to “she does not look like a leftist- what’s up here?”. As she spoke I realized she’s a poised, elegant lady. What a refreshing thing to see!

        As for the questions she had to endure (gracefully I might add) what a bunch of morons! These people make me cringe with their ignorance/transparent trap BS. Wow! Outcome based education has made it’s mark on journalists.

    What journalists? They would only be embarrassing if there was a standard for honesty in their trade. As political operatives they are not the brightest bulb in the room.

      It’s deliberate and planned. The head honchos come up with the narrative line and then all the so-called journalist worker bees punch it out 24/7. That’s evident because they all say the same thing every day.

      In his interview with Laura, Stephen Miller said they aren’t main stream media (MSM) and that what they really are is extreme media. He’s right. The narratives the honchos tell them to punch out is extreme and we should use every opportunity to label them that way.

      It seems that this group of reporters is less hostile and combative as the ones at Sarah’s press conferences.

    The press will be even more outraged when the Trump administration demands strict compliance with the UN resolution and enforces the sanctions by economic and military means if necessary. The huge US naval presence in the region is there to make sure the export restrictions are carried out. I have a hunch China and other countries may not like that at all, but they’re not going to be able to get around living up to the commitments they made at the UN.

    Cut back on the pressers and issue statements explaining the accomplishments and the policy. Somebody has to save the media from themselves. I’m embarrassed as a citizen to have such an ignorant press corps on the world stage.

      Great catch! Would have loved Heather saying that might have been the case under the previous administration and told them to listen to John Kerry’s interview from September that the NYSlime posted. They would have ran out of the room faster than you could blink!

    Let’s go back to the Clinton administration when NK was turning all of its limited resources to producing fissionable materials. The US whined and wrung its hands about the millions of starving
    NKs and NK’s allocating resources to building a bonb. NK ‘shuttered’ its plant and accepted tons of US food, and then when the meal was over it reopened the plant. Some would argue that it never stopped its fissionable materials program for one minute it’s moot as they chugged right along.

    Ditto its missile development programs. The NK programs using data sharing are known andcrecorded in open source and classified files, testiments of our feckless diplomacy. The other actors are known, the equipment suppliers are known and we’ve done……what? First we swore they’d never get fissionable msterials…then we ranted that they’d never get a delivery system…then we swore they’d never get a deliverable warhead…seeing a pattern here.

    Speaking of patterns…noticing a pattern with Iran and NK getting nukes, to include Russian assistance from each country’s git-go nuke program? Press hell, they’re just a reflection of the failure of American diplomacy.

    sickening, I had to turn it off.
    I imagine they were hoping for impotent verbal candy kisses like they were fed by obama….and the pallets of cash and gold to offered to placate the NOKO lunatic, like obama gave Iran.
    The current situations with Iran and N Korea are the poisonous fruits of that poisonous tree,

    As much as we laugh at the press, a lot of people still take it for gospel. On the sports website I run, someone started a discussion today on #FakeNews… half the people on the thread think anyone who thinks the news is “fake” are conspiracy theory nuts and/or stupid.

    Both sides have their own echo chambers. It’s a scary situation.

    OK – I am disturbed that Heather Nauert didn’t walk out, but after she finished the reporters all swarmed at her and she stayed behind to talk to them….’unofficially?’

    Doesn’t look right to me.

    Lastly, Andrea Mitchell in particular is an absolute disgrace.

      Yes, but the scary part is that her looks are disarming. She hides a LOT of capability behind the cheerleader charm. Very easy to see why they wanted her. She is a really good speaker and a quick thinker.

      Sometimes her “resting cool face” shows. Don’t mess with that stuff!!! 😎

    Heather is fantastic! She called out two reporters. The man from I think Israel about whining when he is not called on and our friend from India for making false statements after a press briefing. Both men were embarrassed. She also knew that one female reporter had been sick and welcomed her back. She also said that the room had doubled in size from what it normally is because the Whores were out in full force.

    They realize that our President means business and that the ways of previous Administrations will never be used by him. Diane Feinstein was basically begging him to negotiate with Fat Man. They were blindsided by the UN vote. There was no way that Russia or China were going to vote yes on Saturday. Especially Russia after John McCain and the other Uniparty members forced our President to sign into law a bill sanctioning Russia.

    General Mattis is an incredible man for backing our President with his comments today! It nuked their entire storyline. The other thing that scares them to death is that our President is singlehandedly getting this done and there is nothing they can do to interfere!

    The really sad thing is that the State Department journos are usually the most non-partisan, reasonable and intelligent of the entire bunch in DC.

    If that doesn’t give you more sympathy for Sarah Sanders, nothing will.

    “questions about possibly needing a new “diplomatic direction” are ridiculous”

    Not really, when one considers the Mass-sterical Media’s intent of the question.

    HR Clinton, the Never-Trumpers, et al, would have had us involved in a massive war by now. The media’s intent is to keep pushing Our POTUS until she/they get their war. They will say and do anything to get the U.S. population screaming and demanding a war.

    D’ya spose the rest of the world pities us poor U.S. citizens, being saddled with such obvious id10ts for a supposed “leadership” and press?
    One imagines years under Roger Ailes’ mentorship has ably prepared Heather Nauert and, by extension, Rex Tillerson, for handling these malcontents so well. Another shoulder-sitting angel.

    I agree.

    What an incredible individual!

    She is organized, succinct, informed, charming, witty and she has a great sense of humor.

    PDJT and our country need a dozen more, hundreds more like her at the levers of power right now.

    Whomever her husband is I hate the guy.

    What a woman.

    Who was the moron in the press who suggested just because Iran says this Administration is working with ISIS (in any capacity whatsoever), it must be true.

    In lieu of what ISIS is for that person to suggest such a thing is absolutely disgusting. Heather Nauert handled that moron with such class.

    Is it just me or do others here feel many in that press gathering could be well served taking some diction lessons. And, I’m not referring to the foreign contingent.
