(Tea Party 247) – Here’s a story that sounds like it’s straight out of a Hollywood action movie. It has been revealed that Kim Jong-un has deliberately faked his own death for the express purpose of discovering who the traitors were in his inner circle. Apparently, the only way to find out who would take advantage of his death by seizing power was to fake his death. You just can’t make this stuff up.
Over the past few weeks, rumors had been spreading like wildfire that the authoritarian dictator was gravely ill or that he had died following complications with heart surgery. These rumors were put to bed after Kim Jong was seen at a ribbon cutting event last weekend.
The Daily Express reports:
It is now possible that the leader will use the responses from his long period of absence to begin “purging” those he believes colluded to take over.
Mr Morrow [Sky Outsiders host] said: “What has probably gone on here that the rumours of his demise were greatly exaggerated.
“He decided to do this, lay low, and see how things broke power-wise, and see who tried to take power in the event of his actual demise.
“I suspect we will see some purges in North Korea pretty soon.”
The leader’s reappearance into the spotlight has ruined the credibility of high profile defectors who had suggested Kim Jong was suffering from a life-threatening illness or had died.
North Korea’s deputy ambassador to Britain, Thae Yong-ho, was one of the defectors who had escaped North Korea in 2016.
Thae is now living in South Korea after he had managed secret funds for the despot in England.
He said in a statement: “I am aware that one of the reasons why many of you voted for me as a lawmaker is with the expectations of an accurate analysis and projections on North Korean issues.
“I feel the blame and heavy responsibility.
“Whatever the reasons [for his disappearance], I apologise to everyone.”
Another defector Ji Seong-ho said in a media interview that he was certain Kim had died after surgery and an announcement was pending.
“I have pondered on myself for the past few days and felt the weight of the position that I’m in.
“As a public figure, I will behave carefully going forward,” Ji added.
The pair have faced criticism from the ruling Democratic Party in South Korea for causing damage with their statements.
Ji’s party has acknowledged that he has made “rash, careless” comments, but said that the Democratic Party is trying to stir up hatred toward them.
Kim Jong-un may be a lot of things but apparently he’s no fool. A few days off the media radar caused rumors of his death to swirl about. Perhaps he simply capitalized on the rumors and wanted to see what would happen if the world did believe him to be dead. Or, he is a manipulative mastermind who plotted out the entire fake death from start to finish in order to oust those among his inner circle he deems as traitors or untrustworthy.
We’ll never truly know what his motives were or how involved the planning of this rouse was but one thing is for sure, Kim Jong-un is very much alive and well.
