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.
The press has been reporting that the unidentified North Korean defector’s medical progress has been slow because he’s eaten up by worms.
If we are to believe what we read in the press, the family of the defector has probably been executed by the North Koreans.
A North Korean soldier has been filmed racing for the border in a vehicle and then on foot before his former comrades shoot him at least five times as he limps into South Korea.
The defection, subsequent surgeries and slow recovery of the soldier have riveted South Korea, but it will be a huge embarrassment for the North, which claims all defections are the result of rival Seoul kidnapping or enticing North Koreans to defect. Pyongyang has said nothing about the defection so far.
North Korea’s actions during the defector’s November 13 escape at Panmunjom violated the armistice agreement ending the 1950-53 Korean War because North Korean soldiers fired across and physically crossed the border in pursuit of the soldier, US Colonel Chad G Carroll, a spokesman for the UN command, told reporters in a live TV briefing.
The video, released by the US-led UN command, shows the soldier speeding down a tree-lined road, headlights on, past dun-coloured fields and shocked North Korean soldiers who begin to run after him.
About 30,000 North Koreans have fled to South Korea, mostly via China, since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. A North Korean soldier defected via Panmunjom in 1998 and another in 2007 but neither of those events involved gunfire between the rivals.
