Trump Rejects Diplomacy to Rein in North Korea, Says “only one thing will work”

When presidents seek to improve their standing in the polls, they go to war. All of them do it. Now, unless he’s bluffing in a high stakes game of poker where the loser is annihilated, President Trump has hinted that he’s going to war.

Trump ran for office on a peace platform. He should try harder to live up to the promises he made to the voters.

WASHINGTON (AFP) –
US President Donald Trump said Saturday that diplomatic efforts with North Korea have consistently failed, adding that “only one thing will work.”

Trump has engaged in an escalating war of words with North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un, trading insults amid rising tensions between the two nuclear-armed rivals.

“Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid,” Trump tweeted.

It “hasn’t worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!”

The US has not ruled out the use of force to compel Pyongyang to halt missile and nuclear tests, and Trump has threatened to “totally destroy” the country.

The mercurial American president also told journalists at a recent gathering with military leaders to discuss Iran, North Korea, and the Islamic State group that this “could be the calm before the storm,” declining to clarify his remarks.

Last week, as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson flew home from meeting with top Chinese officials, Trump tweeted that his envoy was “wasting his time” in trying to probe North Korea’s willingness to talk.

The message came after Tillerson had revealed there were backchannels between US and North Korean officials.

Ron Paul concisely describes how to end the “crisis”:

Here’s how to solve the seven-decade old crisis: pull all US troops out of South Korea; end all military exercises on the North Korean border; encourage direct talks between the North and South and offer to host or observe them with an international delegation including the Russians and Chinese, which are after all Korea’s neighbors.

The schoolyard insults back and forth between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un are not funny. They are in fact an insult to all of the rest of us!

Twitter is responding to the escalating crisis.

The Damn Chinese are Making Donkeys Go Extinct by Eating Them

DONKEY HIDE PUDDING IS A CHINESE DELICACY.

Here’s another problem that the Chinese are creating for animals. Is there any animal these hungry bastards won’t eat?

Excerpt from the BBC

The world’s donkeys are facing a population crisis because of the huge demand for their skins in China, where they are used to make health foods and traditional medicine.

Donkey meat is also a popular food, but a huge drop in the number of Chinese donkeys and the fact they are slow to reproduce, has forced suppliers to look elsewhere.

Africa has been badly hit because the animals are such an important part of life for transport and farming – particularly in poorer communities.

In many places the price of a donkey has doubled in the past few years, and as thieves cash in, families are left unable to afford a new animal.

‘I woke up and my donkey was gone’

Water deliveryman Anthony Maupe Wanyama, 29, from Kenya had his donkey Carlos for four years and was doing well.

“I bought land up-country, bought a house, paid school fees and looked after my family,” said the father of two.

He and his donkey were such a part of life in Ongata Rongai, just outside Nairobi, that Anthony’s nickname is “Carlos”.

“I woke up one morning and Carlos was missing. I looked around the area, and then found him dead, his skin had been removed,” said Anthony, tears rolling down his cheeks as he talked about his much-loved animal.

He now rents another donkey to pull a cart-load of blue plastic jerry cans he uses to deliver water, but has to give the owner half of the three or four dollars he makes on a good day.

ANTHONY AND HIS RENTED DONKEY.

Speaking for myself I feel sorry for Anthony. My grandfather loved his mules the way that Anthony loved Carlos. It broke his heart when he had to sell the mules after his big heart attack.

“Now I don’t have enough money. I haven’t paid my rent, I haven’t paid school fees, and I have people who depend on me,” Anthony said.
He can’t afford to buy a new Carlos.

Suffering
The surge in price and demand in Kenya has been encouraged by three donkey abattoirs, which have opened across the country.

They can each slaughter around 150 animals a day, packing and freezing the meat and salting the skins for export.

At the Star Brilliant Donkey Export Abattoir in Naivasha, the latest arrivals are being dragged onto flat metal scales – they are sold by “live weight”.

They are shot in the head with a bolt gun before their meat and skins are processed.

Chief executive John Kariuki says he was the first in Kenya, and in Africa, to get official permits to open a donkey slaughterhouse.

“Before, there was no market for the donkeys. People used to sell their cows, people used to sell their goats to pay their school fees for the children,” he said.

“But now I find that people in the market are selling donkeys more than cows.

“We are happy with the Chinese, because before there was nothing coming from donkeys, but so many people are benefitting from the donkey now today.”

Chinese buyers monitor the process – making sure everything is properly packed and prepared.

When the skins are boiled, they produce a brown gelatine, which is the essential ingredient in Chinese “ejiao” products – popular health foods and traditional medicines.

BBC News goes on to give the facts behind the Chinese donkey extinction.

1.8m skins are traded every year – according to estimates from UK-based charity The Donkey Sanctuary – but the demand is as high as 10m

China’s donkey population dropped from 11m in 1990 to 3m today, based on government data

Ejiao, the gelatine produced by boiling donkey skins, can sell for up to $388 (£300) per kilo

Uganda, Tanzania, Botswana, Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Senegal have banned donkey exports to China

Paul Craig Roberts Explains How Israel Benefits from the Trump-Inspired NFL Kerfuffle

THE DONALD AND BIBI.

Those who believe that American President Donald Trump is a Jew stooge have been posting here and there for the last week a simple criticism of the NFL spectacle that has played out since last Friday.

There is a case that Trump is inflaming American patriotism as part of a larger ZOG scheme to take America to war. While I enjoy watching the NFL and its overpaid Simian-Americans self-destruct, I also understand that the end game is likely war, which we the people elected Trump to end.

I inserted the bold type in this excerpt.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell

Before a few dimwits send me emails demanding explanation why I stand for anti-American minorities against “the greatest country in the world,” let us all first consider where this is going. The answer is: nowhere good. The hyper-patriotism that is being whipped up is so irrational that it is against the self-interests of the counter-protesters, who are hurting the visibility of their merchandising brand and costing the shareholders profits, burning their clothing and expensive football tickets, and denying themselves their favorite entertainment.

The military/security complex, the hegemonic neoconservatives, and the Israel Lobby are sitting there, licking their chops. They know what to do with this display of ignorant patriotism. They will turn it against Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia. Their profits will flow even higher, neocon ambitions will be realized, and Israel will have the US eliminate another country — Iran — in the way of its expansion. Or so they think.

Russia cannot afford a vassal of Washington in Iran or the type of chaos in Iran that now engulfs Iraq and Libya. It is a short distance from Iran through Azerbaijan or Turkmenistan into Muslim areas of Russia and former Muslim provinces of the Soviet Union. If Iran falls, Russia is the next to be destabilized. Additionally, Iran in Washington’s hands extends to the East Washington’s surrounding of Russia. The Russian government would be confronted with US missile bases on its borders ranging from the Baltics through eastern and southern Europe, Ukraine, Georgia and Iran. Moreover, US missiles in Iran could reach China in a few minutes as can the US missile bases being constructed on China’s Pacific border under the guise of countering “the North Korean threat.”

China depends on Iran for 20 percent of its oil supply. China was forced out of its Libyan oil supply by Washington’s overthrow of Gaddafi. Losing Iran would be a blow. At some point these two powerful countries will have to realize that their national existence is at stake. China has been too busy making money to pay attention, and Russia has been in thrall to its centuries-old desire to be part of the West.

The Russian government’s policy of replying to Washington’s aggression with diplomacy has failed totally. This policy has been extremely expensive to Russia and today is a direct threat to Russia’s national survival. Whether Russia is too controlled by Washington and Israeli-installed billionaires to attend to its national interests remains to be seen.

China’s lust for riches is a non-substitute for national survival.

Washington is counting on these singular weaknesses of the only two countries capable of serving as a check on Washington’s unilateralism.

However, there are countervailing powers in Russia and China. The Operation Command of the Russian High Command has publicly given its opinion that Washington is preparing a surprise nuclear attack on Russia. It would be derelict beyond comprehension for President Putin to ignore this conclusion. Inside China, historic pride is a rival influence to the lust for riches. The Chinese are determined never again to be a mere playground for foreign powers.

Sooner or later even the hubris-overstuffed Zionist Lobby will realize that the American war against Iran that Israel is demanding is a fuse for a Third World War and that the Jews will be destroyed along with everyone else. From the “Nile to the Euphrates” will be a wasteland.

On this website on September 27, 2017, I addressed what can be done from the Western side to reduce the tensions that are leading to nuclear armageddon. On the Russian and Chinese side what can be done is a tri-party mutual defense pact between Russia, Iran, and China that is made public. This would tell the psychopaths in Washington and Israel that an attack on Iran means World War III.

If this is not a deterrent, then Washington and Israel are lost to evil, and life on earth is ended.

Paul Craig Roberts rather gingerly names the Jew as the instigator of World War III. Apparently, the (((Deep State))) is too powerful for one man (Trump) to overcome. With Bannon and Flynn gone and Ivanka whispering in his ear, Trump is veering off the course we had hoped he would follow.

Trump Praises China For Ordering Banks To Halt Business With North Korea

If you believe as I do that the North Korean threat is a psy op, engineered by the (((Deep State))) to add to the American military budget and to add to Israel’s aspirations, then you might not be impressed with the news about added sanctions on Kim’s regime. If you are inclined to believe the little fat boy is a real threat, then enjoy the good news that President Trump reported today at the UN.

Real Clear Politics

Sitting alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, President Trump praised the Chinese government for reportedly banning any of its banks from doing business with North Korea.

“You heard about China – what China was doing today, in terms of the banking system. That was a tremendous move,” the president said.

“I’m very proud to tell you that as you may have just heard moments ago, China, their central bank has told their other banks –that’s a massive banking system– to immediately stop doing business with North Korea,” Trump reportedly said off camera at the same meeting.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: It’s wonderful to have prime minister Shinzo Abe doing a great job for the people of Japan. He’s doing a wonderful job for the great people of Japan. We had discussions already today and this is a formalization of the discussions. We made a lot of progress both on trade and obviously, very importantly, we have discussed in great detail North Korea, with also South Korea, as you just saw.

So we will continue that dialogue — the relationship that has never been closer with Japan and the United States.

It will continue on with that way. I look forward to discussing some things that the group is here specifically to discuss, and we will be reporting back to you later.

Thank you all very much. You heard about China – what China was doing today, in terms of the banking system. That was a tremendous move and we have great respect and also would like to thank President Xi of China. It was a great thing he did today. Thank you very much. Thank you very much for being here.

If the whole North Korean situation is real, then Trump is doing better than Obama. That bar was set pretty low, however.

As they say, “It ain’t over til the fat lady sings.” This isn’t over yet.

I’m out of fat ladies. William Shatner will have to do. Trump’s inspiration–Rocket Man.

Beijing Offers Sex Dolls for Rent

The girls look almost real. And almost underage. In fact, can you get an truly underage doll on the black market?

And how about boy models for our sodomite pedophile friends?

If the Chinese expect to enter the American market with these beauties, they’d also better get politically correct and bring on the models for pedophiles and sodomites.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

It’s official: China’s sharing economy has reached its peak.

After shared workout pods, stools [4] luxury cars [5], and, of course, bicycles [6], Shanghaist reports that a Beijing-based startup now has come up with a “mesmerizingly grotesque” idea: what if people could rent sex dolls through an app and return them after a period of time so that other silicone slammers could take advantage of the very same product?

And no, sadly this is not a joke.

The Chinese app, which is called Ta Qu, or “Touch” in English, was launched in 2015 as a platform for discussing issues about sex and sexuality. Over the past two years, it has pivoted or “(d)evolved” into a sex doll sharing app [7], which is now being tested in Beijing. The Global Times reports [8] that daily rentals cost 298 yuan, or less than $50, while users of the app can rent dolls for a week for the price of 1,298 yuan, after making an 8,000 yuan deposit.

The dolls then get delivered right to the user’s doorstep.

According to the Chinese outlet, there are currently five models to choose from: “Greek bikini model,” “US Wonder Woman,” “Korean housewife,” “Russian teenager” and “Hong Kong car race cheerleader.” Users can customize the dolls to their liking by picking out hair and eye color, as well as their outfits.

Here is what $50 per day rents you:

For those asking the obvious question, the company states that it also has hygiene on its mind, as explained by their official policy.

“The dolls’ lower parts are changed for every customer,” reads the app. “Please remove the lower parts before returning. After the lower parts are cleaned, the doll can be used repeatedly.”

Some interesting comments followed the story at Zerohedge. Here are a few of them.

In my travels there I would say no gender imbalance. The problem is the cost of living is so high relative to income and families won’t let their daughters get involved with a guy that can’t support her as they dream fitting. So the guys are kind of cut off from women and have developed a whole subculture of entertaining themselves without women: heavy drinking, gambling, karoke, video games, porn, etc.

This also leads to older western guys having a strong in with young gorgeous asian women.

Maybe this is the end of times.

I think someone could make money selling Pelosi and Waters dolls at a gun range.

Am I the only one who noticed the dolls all have round eyes?

Apparently chinese men prefer the look of white women. This should make real chinese women behave as better wives and GFs. Of if you like hookers their price should come way down.

So, when do you think they’ll be coming out with a Hillary Clinton doll?

Those Chinks. I’ll bet they did this in response to Trump’s threats of trade wars and such.

Paul Craig Roberts: Behold a Pale Horse, and its Rider is Death

We the people elected Donald Trump over warmonger Hillary Clinton in order to destroy ISIS and then pursue peace around the world.

Trump has apparently been co-opted by the (((Deep State))) into doing Israel’s bidding. Or, if you read yesterday’s post, he’s being drugged by forces within the White House.

There’s a very real danger that the Jewish neocons in charge of American foreign policy will deliberately lead us into a nuclear World War III that will destroy the world.

It’s puzzling that both China and Russia are kowtowing to America. Dr. Roberts wonders whether that’s out of fear or whether the two superpowers are planning something big while lulling America to sleep while apparently cooperating with Washington.

Condensed from Paul Craig Roberts

Two of America’s most populous states, Texas and Florida, are in hurricane ruins, and Washington is fomenting more wars.

The US national debt is now over $20 trillion, and Washington is fomenting more wars.

The entire world is helping Washington foment wars—including two targeted countries themselves—Russia and China—both of which are helping Washington foment more wars. Believe it or not, both Russia and China voted with Washington on the UN Security Council to impose more and harsher sanctions on North Korea, a country guilty of nothing but a desire to have the means to protect itself from the US and not become yet another Washington victim like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Serbia, and Ukraine overthrown in a US coup and now poverty-stricken.

I once thought that Russia and China were checks on Washington’s unilateralism, but apparently not. Both governments have been knuckled under by Washington and both voted to punish North Korea for striving to be sufficiently armed to protect its sovereignty from Washington.

Russia knows that it is surrounded by US nuclear and military bases. So does China. The question is: have Russia and China capitulated out of fear? Or is their cooperation with Washington a ruse while they prepare their own strike on Washington, or are the two misguided governments trying to cooperate with Washington a la sanctions so as to avoid having to confront a US military attack on North Korea?

It requires much competence to confront evil, and there is probably more evil in Washington than there is competence in Russia and China, two countries interested in being rich to an extent that it might cost them their sovereignty and existence.

When you see such potentially powerful countries as Russia and China collapse under Washington’s pressure in the UN Security Council, it makes you wonder if the various analyses of Washington’s many weaknesses are real, and if they are real, if Russia and China are aware of them.

How does one go about explaining why two countries, whose sovereignty is in the way of Washington’s world hegemony, help their known enemy bully yet another small country, especially one in their orbit of influence? How can Russia complain of sanctions against Russia based on nothing but Washington’s propaganda when Russia supports sanctions against North Korea based on Washington’s propaganda?

Russia and China are working hand-in-hand with Washington toward their own demise.

It is becoming biblical. Washington the anti-Christ is subverting all good on earth.

Behold, a Pale Horse, and its Rider is Washington.

During his campaign, Trump promised friendship with Russia and peace with the world. We have to hold his feet to the fire to see to it that the Generals he so admires (McMaster and Kelly) aren’t the only voices he hears.

Theory: Nork Leader Kim Jong Un is a CIA Asset

HEADLINE PHOTO ON DRUDGE REPORT TODAY.

The rogue state of North Korea is at the top of today’s news since exploding a hydrogen bomb yesterday. I count 10 stories, linked in red print, on the Drudge Report about the test explosion.

The American press is giddy with talk of war.

Americans view the little gook dictator as both a joke and a threat. Many are gung-ho for killing the ridiculous little man.

Could Kim be a CIA plant tasked with driving South Korea and Japan into the arms of the USA? If he is our guy, we wouldn’t kill him as long as he was still useful to us.

Excerpt from Journal-Neo

What is Kim Jong Un?

Who or better said, what is Kim Jong Un? Since the death of his father in 2011 Kim Jong Un has consolidated power as absolute dictator. In December 2011 Kim became Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army. His earlier history has been carefully hidden. It has been verified that he attended school in Europe at Liebefeld Steinhölzli school in Köniz near Bern. Accounts say he lived in Switzerland, under a false name, from 1991 until 2000. There he reportedly developed a prodigious taste for French Bordeaux wines, Yves St Laurent cigarettes, Swiss Emmenthaler cheese and luxury Mercedes autos according to Kim Jong-il’s former personal chef, Kenji Fujimoto.

While Kim’s extensive stay in Europe might or might not have been the opportunity for US intelligence to nurture some kind of contact, Kim’s deeds since taking control have been a godsend to the US role in disrupting Chinese as well as Russian relations with both North Korea and with South Korea as well as with Japan.

One of Kim Jong Un’s earliest indications of a major shift in foreign policy away from Beijing came when he ordered the arrest of his uncle for treason in December, 2013. Jang Sung-taek had been vice-chairman of the National Defence Commission, second only to that of the Supreme Leader and was “key policy adviser” to the politically inexperienced Kim Jong-un on the death of Kim’s father. More importantly, Jang was well-known as China’s best friend in Pyongyang.

As Washington moved to implement its new Asia Pivot military encirclement policies against China, removal of Beijing’s most influential friend in North Korea would be very convenient, to put it mildly.

Kim Jong Un not only had Jang executed, Jang’s wife, Kim Kyong-hui, the only daughter of former North Korean supreme leader Kim Il-sung, the only sister of former North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-il and the aunt of Kim Jong-un, a General in the army and Politburo member, was reportedly poisoned on orders of Kim, though no confirmation has been possible. What is known is that Kim ordered the systematic execution of all other members of Jang’s family including children and grandchildren of all close relatives. Those reportedly killed in Kim’s purge include Jang’s sister Jang Kye-sun, her husband and ambassador to Cuba, Jon Yong-jin, and Jang’s nephew and ambassador to Malaysia, Jang Yong-chol as well as the nephew’s two sons. At the time of Jang’s removal, the Kim regime announced, “the discovery and purge of the Jang group…made our party and revolutionary ranks purer …”

Clearly, Kim Jong Un was just the kind of dictator Washington’s warhawks could “do business with.”

Kim’s War Threats

The timing and effect of Kim Jong Un’s bizarre threats to wage war against South Korea and other states of the region, including Japan, as well verbal threats to strike cities on the US West Coast since 2013, fit too neatly into the geopolitical agenda of Washington, but not against North Korea. The agenda of Washington was aimed rather against China and the Russian Far East.

In March 2013, North Korea’s Kim, absurdly enough, threatened the United States with a “pre-emptive nuclear attack”, and Kim Jong-un issued a detailed threat to “wipe out” Baengnyeong Island, under United Nations Command and South Korean control since the Korean War and scene of previous naval clashes. Under Kim Jong Un, North Korea has boasted of plans for conducting nuclear strikes on US cities, including Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Military experts suggest the threats were pure macho bravado and that Kim’s nuclear capabilities are bluff at least at this stage. It had the effect of painting Washington as a major enemy of Pyongyang, a useful cover for Washington however and creating the backdrop for Washington to promote its Asian military expansion, in fact aimed at both China and Russia, not Pyongyang.

It’s commonly believed that since the 1950’s Korean War, communist North Korea has been a Beijing puppet regime. It’s true that China is North Korea’s biggest trading partner, and main source of food, arms, and energy. It has also helped sustain Kim Jong-un’s regime, and has historically opposed harsh international sanctions on North Korea. However, the relationship is anything but congenial for Beijing. Their main concern is to keep their North Korea neighbor from exploding in chaos.

While China does maintain certain influence and while China sees North Korea as a buffer between it and the US-allied South Korea, Beijing’s ability to influence the erratic Kim Jong Un seems to be extremely limited, if at all, a significant change from earlier Kim dynasty dictators. The one power to gain from Kim Jong Un’s bellicose actions is the United States as geopolitical hegemon desiring to turn Japan and especially South Korea against China.

If this theory is correct, and it makes a hell of a lot of sense except for leaving out how Israel benefits, then Kim is just an actor, reading a script laid out for him by the American (((Deep State.)))
