  • The Kim Family Business: After Singapore, What’s Next?

    The regime’s actions over decades show that conquering South Korea has been its No. 1 goal. Let’s hope that has changed. President Trump should be given credit for his ambitious goal for North Korea, whether or not the goal is achieved. Sadly, I expect the administration to fall short of the finish line. Conventional wisdom has it that Kim Jong-un’s objective is the survival of his regime. That’s not so. Since the post–World War II creation of the Democratic Republic of Korea, the Kim family regime has sought one objective: conquest of South Korea by any means to unify the...

    The four-minute movie trailer was created to show Chairman Kim the power and glory that could be his if he lays down his nukes. President Trump pitched paradise to Kim Jong Un in a four-minute movie trailer made especially for the summit in Singapore last week, complete with cautionary tale, dramatic musical score and a lot left for the imagination. It features the two men and images of glory and strength: the perfect tease for the chubby millennial ruling North Korea known for killing off family members and playing video games. Kim is like Trump. They love screens and they...

    In decrying the Singapore summit and Trump’s freeze on U.S. military exercises, liberal pundits are ignoring popular opinion and years of peace activism in South Korea, says Christine Ahn of Women Cross DMZ Story Transcript AARON MATE: It’s The Real News. I’m Aaron Mate. The peace efforts underway on the Korean Peninsula are widely popular on the Korean Peninsula. In South Korea, polls show overwhelming support for this week’s summit between President Trump and Kim Jong un. That sentiment was reinforced when just after the summit the party of South Korean leader Moon Jae-in scored a massive victory in local...

    Thousands of brave lives and billions of pounds have been lost since prime minister Tony Blair, president George W Bush and their followers thought the best way to make the world a better place was to get rid of tyrants by military force. To everyone’s cost we now know that was wrong. Instead, in an off-the-cuff remark, US President Donald Trump said this week that North Korea could swap its missile launch bases for beachside condominiums – what we’d call luxury apartments. It revealed one of the strongest motives behind the North Korean tyrant’s U-turn on nuclear weaponry. Looking across...

    It is happening now. President Trump and Kim Jong Un entered the beautiful Singapore resort separately, but soon after joined in a handshake that will be felt around the world. History in the making – this very moment – positive history for the entire world. While President Trump was at the G7 Summit, he represented the United States in a manner which should have made the American people proud. However, the news media did nothing but downgrade him. By Legacy Research Now President Trump is sitting down in the beautiful Singapore resort talking and smiling with Kim Jong Un –...
  • Our Reaction to the North Korea Summit Depends on Our Predisposition About Trump

    Townhall ^ | 06/15/2018 | David Limbaugh
    It goes without saying that Democrats would view President Trump's North Korean negotiations quite differently than Republicans, but I was honestly surprised by the strong negative reaction of Trump critics on the right.    Don't get me wrong, some Trump critics on the right reflexively oppose everything he does or says, but my gut reaction when first learning of the summit was that even they would grudgingly acknowledge this as a positive development. But their reaction was viscerally negative, harsh, cynical, pessimistic and absolute. Either I overestimated their capacity for some fairness concerning Trump or I am radically wrong in how...

    GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) blasted the Trump administration's decision to halt military exercises with South Korea as part of the ongoing negotiations with North Korea. "Suspending U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises is a mistake. Making unnecessary and unreciprocated concessions is not in our interests—and it is a bad negotiating tactic," McCain said in a statement on Thursday. Trump announced after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that the United States will stop “war games” with South Korea “unless and until” negotiations with the North go poorly. Agence France-Presse reported on Thursday that the Pentagon had “suspended...

    Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have communicated several times over the past few months and are seeking to schedule a meeting between the two later this year, a new report says. One option on the table is for Abe to travel to Pyongyang in August, but another possibility is for Abe and Kim to meet during the Eastern Economic Forum in September if Kim decided to attend, according to the Yomiuri newspaper. The report comes after a Tuesday summit between the U.S. and North Korea, where President Trump and Kim signed a joint...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is defending the agreement signed by President Trump and Kim Jong Un at the Singapore summit, insisting it “encompasses” ‘verifiable’ and ‘irreversible’ denuclearization, even though the document does not explicitly use those terms. The document calls only for “complete denuclearization,” sparking criticism the agreement was not specific enough to allow oversight of the denuclearization process. “Let me assure you that ‘complete’ encompasses ‘verifiable’ in the minds of everyone concerned,” Pompeo told reporters in Seoul Wednesday. “One can’t completely denuclearize without validating, authenticating – you pick the word. The President is committed to that.” When a...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday criticized a joint diplomatic statement released a few hours before from President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un as lacking detail and giving Kim too much room to back out. Schumer said by meeting with Kim, Trump has given “a brutal and repressive dictatorship the international legitimacy it has long craved.” “It is best not to dive in head first and hope for the best but rather to work slowly, transparently and verifiably to build trust and lock in concessions,” Schumer warned. Schumer argued the agreement lacks detail on achieving...

    North Korean state media claimed in a glowing announcement Tuesday that President Trump and dictator Kim Jong Un invited one another to their respective countries during their landmark summit in Singapore. There was no immediate response from the White House. A report on the meeting by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said, "Kim Jong Un invited Trump to visit Pyongyang at a convenient time and Trump invited Kim Jong Un to visit the U.S." It went on: "The two top leaders gladly accepted each other's invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved [North Korea]-U.S....

    The George W. Bush Presidential Center is tweeting out coverage and analysis of human rights abuses in North Korea, just one day after President Trump’s historic summit with the country’s leader on Tuesday. The center has shared older posts on the human rights violations as well as pieces arguing for human rights to be included in future talks with North Korea. Asked about the posts, a spokesperson for the Bush Center told The Hill that it was “simply sharing content that we work on every day within our Human Freedom Initiative.” The spokesperson did not directly respond to an emailed...

    Fox News host Shep Smith on Tuesday slammed President Donald Trump for how he conducted himself at a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, accusing him of giving Kim everything he wanted while receiving virtually nothing in return. “America demanded complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization. … There’s no guarantee of that, not even words to that effect,” Smith said of the agreement signed between Trump and Kim, which says North Korea will work toward denuclearization but doesn’t offer specific details on how this will occur. The Fox News host decried Trump for offering his signature to an agreement...

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday he believes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will move immediately on steps toward denuclearization and that the process is moving rapidly, according to an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. "I just think that we are now going to start the process of denuclearization of North Korea. I believe that he's going back and will start it virtually immediately," Trump said in excerpts of the interview broadcast on Fox after the U.S.-North Korea summit in Singapore. "And he's already indicated that." "It's a process and it's really moving rapidly," he added.
