    Note to Barack Hussein Obama: This is what smart diplomacy looks like: How could a dangerous idiot like Donald Trump get little Kimmie to drop his guns when the brilliant Barry Obama (with his secret diplomatic weapon, Dennis Rodman) was unable to do so? Could it be PDJT, using Americas strength as a trade partner, got(Gasp!) China to exert force on our behalf? CNN certainly didnt seem to think so earlier this month: (CNN) A surprise visit by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to China may indicate Pyongyang's need for support from its closest ally ahead of upcoming summits...

    Abe pushes Trump's focus to N. Korea missiles, U.S. military presence By Ko Hirano, KYODO NEWS - Apr 20, 2018 - 15:25 | All, World Despite U.S. President Donald Trump's reassurance that Japan and the United States are "very unified" on North Korea, concerns persist that Pyongyang may refuse to rid itself of medium-range missiles and that Washington might agree to wind back its military presence on the Korean Peninsula at the behest of the North's leader Kim Jong Un. During two-day talks through Wednesday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump pledged to continue levying...
  • 95% of plastic polluting world's oceans comes from just 10 rivers

    Up to 95 per cent of plastic polluting the worlds oceans pours in from just ten rivers, according to new research. The top 10 rivers eight of which are in Asia accounted for so much plastic because of the mismanagement of waste. About five trillion pounds is floating in the sea, and targeting the major sources such as the Yangtze and the Ganges could almost halve it, scientists claim. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt flew in coach-class seats on at least two trips home to Oklahoma when taxpayers werent footing the bill, despite claims he...

    North and South Korea are preparing to officially end the war when their two leaders - Dictator Kim Jong-Un and President Moon Jae-in - meet next week. The two Koreas are technically still at war as the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty. South Korean media reports that the two sides had been discussing plans for a permanent end to the war at the North-South summit, citing an unidentified Seoul official.

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo made a top-secret visit to North Korea over Easter weekend as an envoy for President Trump to meet with that countrys leader, Kim Jong Un, according to two people with direct knowledge of the trip. The extraordinary meeting between one of Trumps most trusted emissaries and the authoritarian head of a rogue state was part of an effort to lay the groundwork for direct talks between Trump and Kim about North Koreas nuclear weapons program, according to the two people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the highly classified nature of the talks.
  • Donald Trump Walks Back Eagerness to Rejoin TPP

    President Donald Trump clarified his desire to rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), after telling members of Congress from agricultural states that he would do it. Would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. Obama, Trump wrote on Twitter. Members of Congress and governors from agriculture states met with the president for over an hour at the White House, leaving feeling confident that he wanted to re-enter the trade agreement. He looked right at Larry Kudlow and said, Larry go get it done, Senator Ben Sasse told reporters after the meeting.

    Just watched an interview with President Trump on Bloomberg. He ended with a good talk, to American farmers, about the Chinese targeting them for tariff in the trade dispute. Just wanted to mention, any food (not) ordered by China from America, will be bought by China from somewhere else. DECREASING that country's supply. This means, that country will have less to see around the world. Meaning a bigger market in THAT country, or other countries who used to buy from that country, for American farm goods. It is just a wash.

    President Trump says in a new interview that tariffs targeting China over intellectual property theft could cause some "pain" in the U.S. economy, but promised that America would emerge stronger as a result. "I'm not saying there's not gonna be any pain," Trump said Friday in an interview with "Bernie & Sid in the Morning" on 77 WABC in New York City. He also acknowledged the initial reaction from markets is likely to be negative. They could lose a little bit," he said. Dow Jones industrial average futures plummeted on Thursday after news broke that Trump has asked officials in...

    U.S. stocks were higher in afternoon trading on Wednesday, with the major indexes recovering from earlier losses as investors fears eased over a trade conflict between the United States and China. Beijing hit back against U.S. plans to impose tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods, with proposals for a list of similar duties on key American imports including soybeans, planes, cars, beef and chemicals. However, investor concerns appeared to ease after Trumps top economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the administration was involved in a negotiation with China rather than a trade war. The market also seemed to take comfort...

You can delete it, but I hope you won't. -- I just saw a bit on the television station with an interview with Larry Kudlow. I think it was perfect. Very good. Keep Kudlow out front on this. He is a good front person. Trump and Kudlow are a good combination.

    If the U.S. goes through with an additional $100 billion in tariffs, China will not hesitate to fight back and is already prepared to, the Ministry of Commerce said. "We will immediately fight back with a major response," the representative said during a Chinese-language briefing with reporters Friday in Beijing. "We have no other choice." "We feel America is very arrogant. They have taken a wrong action. The result is that they will hurt themselves. If they release the list of $100 billion tariffs, China is prepared. And will not hesitate," he added. U.S. President Donald Trump said late Thursday...

    The U.S. and China indicated theyre willing to negotiate on escalating frictions, helping to ease fears among investors that a tit-for-tat trade dispute could derail the strongest global expansion in years. The White Houses National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow spent much of the day Wednesday trying to calm markets after the two countries announced tariffs, and said they still have time work out their differences. Remember, none of the tariffs have been put in place yet. These are all proposals, he said in a brief interview, without specifying if talks are planned or how theyd take place. Were putting...

    A think tank commissioned by the South Korean Navy to study possible options for a nuclear-powered attack submarine procurement has pointed to Frances 5,300 ton Barracuda-class submarine as a model candidate. Manufactured by French industrial group DCNS (Direction des Constructions Navales), the Barracuda-class is a modern class of nuclear attack submarine, notable for its extremely low noise signature, enhancing the submarines survivability. According to Defense News, a South Korean Navy spokesperson noted that they are reviewing the report, which was produced by the Korea Defense Network over five months. After thorough review, well report it to the defense minister and...

    Once again, Donald Trump has exposed the fecklessness of his predecessors and the foreign policy establishment, this time with his courageous strategy to denuclearize North Korea. The visit to Beijing by Kim Jong-un – held secret at first, but acknowledged and publicized by Beijing after it became clear that it was successful – reveals that so far, Trump’s strategy is working beautifully. The official New China News Agency says Kim told Chinese leader Xi Jinping: "If South Korea and the United States respond with goodwill to our efforts, and create an atmosphere of peace and stability, and take phased, synchronized measures...

    The Winter Olympics' closing ceremonies also concluded North Korea's propaganda effort to divert attention from its nuclear-weapons and ballistic-missile programs. And although President Trump announced more economic sanctions against Pyongyang last week, he also bluntly presaged "Phase Two" of U.S. action against the Kim regime, which "may be a very rough thing." CIA Director Mike Pompeo said in January that Pyongyang was within "a handful of months" of being able to deliver nuclear warheads to the U.S. How long must America wait before it acts to eliminate that threat? Pre-emption opponents argue that action is not justified because Pyongyang does...

    Aleksandr Khaldey, a Russian analyst, says that Vladivostok is a possible site for a meeting of Putin, Trump, and Kim Jong-Un now that the US president has declared that he wants to meet with both the Russian and North Korean leaders. On the one hand, this may be no more than an attempt to attract attention to the fact that Trump telephoned Putin to congratulate the Russian leader on his re-election, expressed concern about the new Russian weapons the Kremlin leader talked about on March 1, and said he would like to meet. But on the other, it may reflect...

    President Trump ordered Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to eat a salad served to U.S. diplomats during a trip to China last year, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. The Chinese leaders had reportedly included Caesar salad on the menu for a dinner with Trump, Tillerson and other top U.S. officials in November. The event was held in China's Great Hall of the People during Trump's tour of Asia. Trump grew worried that the Chinese officials might be offended if the U.S. leaders didn't eat the salad, the Journal reported. "Rex, eat the salad," Trump told his top diplomat, according...
