Uh-oh. The Little Rocket Man has a lot to learn about the Middle East. If he wants to make nice and cozy with the West, rule #1 is to never criticize Israel.
President Trump has nominated Mike Pompeo to be his new Secretary of State. Pompeo’s reputation is that of a warmonger. He is hostile to everything Russian, as documented by The Ron Paul Institute
For once Code Pink may be right:
However, this big news on Tuesday night means that it’s highly likely that Trump and the leader of North Korea will meet.
I hope Little Rocket Man understands the intricacies of the (((Deep State.))) Dictators who fall into the American orbit often end up dead, like Sadam Hussein, or demonized, like Vladimir Putin, who really isn’t a dictator.
CIA Director Mike Pompeo met directly with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, The Washington Post reported Tuesday night. The Post reported the two met over Easter weekend, citing two people with direct knowledge of the trip.
America is now out of the frying pan and into the fire.
Fox News watchers are pleased, judging from the comments at that site.
I expect the alt-right to have a different reaction. GLP members are sounding the alarms.
John Bolton will replace H.R. McMaster as President Donald Trump’s national security advisor, the latest move in an ongoing shakeup of the president’s top advisors.
Iran, Iran, Iran. Tucker asks Bolton some tough questions.
Most of what the public has been hearing from the media for the last year about President Donald Trump’s words toward North Korea has been that Trump is a reckless, insane, mentally ill maniac who was going to get Hawaii nuked.
The critics are still on Trump’s back, but any unbiased observer would be impressed with yesterday’s announcement that Trump and Nork’s Kim will be meeting within the next few weeks.
Trump was right again and the naysayers were wrong. Although the end game is not in sight, Kim’s invite to Trump is one of those surprises that allows Trump to give the giant finger to his critics.
Donald Trump took the biggest gamble of his presidency on Thursday, breaking decades of U.S. diplomatic orthodoxy by accepting an invitation to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The bet is that Trump’s campaign to apply maximum economic pressure on Kim’s regime has forced him to consider what was previously unthinkable: surrendering the illicit nuclear weapons program begun by his father. If the president is right, the U.S. would avert what appeared at times last year to be a steady march toward a second Korean War.
I’m willing to bet that the longtime employee who triggered a false missile attack alert in Hawaii earlier this month is a low IQ, totally incompetent nonwhite affirmative action hire.
After 10 years on the job and multiple screw ups, “employee 1” has now been fired. The state will not reveal any details about the pineapple person who created a panic. If specific info about the loser were released it might wake a few people up to the idea that only white people should be in charge of white technology.
The unnamed state government employee who caused a panic after sending out an alert that missiles were about to strike Hawaii has been fired. Three more staff, including the head of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, have also resigned, but the case of the Missile That Wasn’t There still leaves Americans with plenty of questions.
Hawaii is a fuxated jambalaya of race mixing.
It’s an extreme liberal state that should probably go back to being its own country, ruled by a primitive native king.
Today, somebody, not yet identified, made a big mistake.
It’s what you get with a third world people. They loved their guy, Obama, who let the nuclear missile threat fester and did nothing.
They deserve to live in terror until they admit that Trump is right about Little Rocket Man and everything else.
Excerpt from NBC News
Hawaiians were thrown into a panic Saturday morning after an emergency alert was sent warning of a ballistic missile threat. But emergency officials said minutes later it was a false alarm caused when someone pushed the wrong button, leading to an uproar over how such an error — with potentially dangerous consequences — could occur.
With American President Donald Trump you have a good cop and a bad cop all wrapped up in the same guy.
Some people say that Trump is crazy.
He is. Crazy like a fox.
It’s too bad his DMZ visit had to end with his chopper turning back because of fog. There would have been some good sound bites that we’ll never get to hear now.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Softening his aggressive rhetoric, at least for the moment, President Donald Trump stood on South Korean soil Tuesday and urged North Korea to come to the negotiating table. But plans for a surprise visit by Trump to the heavily fortified Korean demilitarized zone on Wednesday were thwarted by fog.
Trump had been scheduled to make the unannounced morning trip to the DMZ amid heightened tensions between the United States and North Korea over Pyongyang’s nuclear program. His helicopter was forced to turn back to Seoul due to bad weather near the border.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president was disappointed he couldn’t make the trip — and “pretty frustrated.” A White House official had earlier ruled out the trip, claiming Trump didn’t have time on his schedule and that DMZ visits have become “a little bit of a cliché.”
Visiting the border that has separated the North and South for 64 years has become something of a ritual for U.S. presidents trying to demonstrate their resolve against North Korea’s ever-escalating aggression. Every American president since Ronald Reagan, save for George H.W. Bush, has made the trip, peering across the barren north through binoculars, hearing broadcast propaganda, and reaffirming their commitment to standing with the South.
The attempted visit was scheduled for a day after Trump made a striking shift in tone for a president, who for months has issued increasingly dire threats to answer any hostile North Korean action with “fire and fury.” In a recent speech at the United Nations, Trump said he would “totally destroy” the nation, if necessary, and has derided Kim as “little Rocket Man.”
But on Tuesday, his first day on the Korean Peninsula as president, Trump said he’d seen “a lot of progress” in dealing with Pyongyang, though he stopped short of saying whether he wanted direct diplomatic talks.
“It makes sense for North Korea to come to the table and make a deal that is good for the people of North Korea and for the world,” Trump said at a news conference with South Korean president Moon Jae-in. “I do see certain movement.” He also sounded an optimistic note on disagreements with the North, saying confidently, if vaguely: “Ultimately, it’ll all work out.”
Ever the showman, Trump had teased that he had a surprise in store, saying at a Tuesday evening banquet that he had an “exciting day” planned — “for many reasons that people will find out.” He did not elaborate on what turned out to be the aborted trip to the DMZ.
By now, you should know the routine.
Trump is not an Obama or a Bush. Actually, those two were rather similar in their policies and personalities, sometimes referred to as Bushbama.
The reporter who inserted the word “showman” into this story got it right. And with Little Rocket Man also being a showman, there’s every possibility that both Trump and Kim could grab headlines by becoming best pals.
