KCNA: "We will never pardon anyone who dare provoke the supreme leadership of the DPRK but will certainly make them pay for it. Biden had better think back the reason for his past two failures in presidential elections."
KCNA: Biden "is self-praising himself as being the most popular presidential candidate. This is enough to make a cat laughSuch a guy had the temerity to insult the supreme leadership of the DPRK, an intolerable and serious politically-motivated provocation against the DPRK."
KCNA: "It is by no means accidental that there is nonstop comment over his bid for candidacy that he is not worth pinning hope on, backed by the jeer that he is a fool of low IQ. Even the American media derided him as a man with 'manic-obsessive running of the mouth'."
KCNA: "In April 2011 when the then President Obama was in the middle of making a speech, he was fast asleep in the auditorium to become a laughing-stock of the media. Once he called his political rivals Republicans 'shrieking pigs' to startle the public."
KCNA: "It is well known to the world that he received a grade of F during university days for plagiarizing other's article in his paper and could not but give up running for presidency in 1988 for plagiarizing a speech of a British politician that led to a public furor."
KCNA: "What he uttered is just sophism of an imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being, let alone a politician. He has been accused even within the Democratic Party, to say nothing of the American society, for his vulgar acts and words about women."
KCNA: "Former U.S. Vice-President Biden has gone reckless and senseless, seized by ambition for power. The presidential candidate from the Democratic Party during his recent election campaigning reeled off rhetoric slandering the supreme leadership of the DPRK."

KCNA: Kim "personally selected a site for large-scale vegetable greenhouse farm, saying that such greenhouse area would be enough to meet the needs of provincial inhabitants for vegetables. And he added that he is very pleased when he does worthwhile things for the people."
KCNA: "All thinking and practical activities of Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, are run through with devoted service for the good of the people. He has always felt his joy in the people's happiness."

KCNA: "If the food problem is solved, the people will be provided with a stable life and their revolutionary zeal and creativity will be fully displayed to powerfully step up the socialist construction."
KCNA: "The hostile forces who don't want us to bewell-off are seeking to make our people undergo shortage of food, bring to collapse their faith in socialism and thus subdue us. We should do rice transplanting in a proper wayand thus deal a telling blow to the hostile forces"
KCNA: "Since the international concern is growing more than ever overthe heinous act of the United States, the Secretary General of the United Nations is requested to take urgent measures as a way ofproving the impartiality of the UN."
KCNA: "Recently, the United States committed an unlawful and outrageous act of taking the DPRK's cargo ship to Samoathis act of dispossession has clearly indicated that the United States is indeed a gangster country that does not care at all about international laws."
