Kim Visits China to Report on How He Snookered the Orange Idiot

Kim Jong-un, fresh off his complete submission before the strategic, economic, and military might of…Xi Jinping, has arrived in China to “brief” Xi’s Communist Party inner circle about how he successfully manipulated the United States government into granting all of China’s wishes while somehow persuading themselves that this was a Make-America-Great-Again kind of victory. As Reuters reports: China has been particularly pleased by...

Trump Sells Out Friends for Personal Vanity

As part of his complete capitulation to the demands of a tin pot communist dictator — which he and his cultists are trying to frame as an act of negotiating genius — it turns out that Donald the Wonder Idiot also promised Kim Jong-un that he will summarily cancel U.S. participation in the longstanding annual joint military exercises, or “war games,” in which...

Moon Jae-in: Progressive Diplomacy Without Shame

Look at the following images, from Moon Jae-in’s latest surprise get-together with Kim Jong Un, on May 25th: And here are some images from the two leaders’ similar meeting a month ago: And here are the two men and their wives clinking champagne glasses and pretending to enjoy some kitsch-for-peace performances: All smiles, all unity, all friendship across borders, all “reconciliation.” What could...

Feminists on the Injustice of Pregnancy

Korea’s recently-elected progressive government has announced plans to begin “research” on the country’s restrictive abortion laws, which, of course, is another way of saying they are going to get the ball rolling on legalizing abortion. This initiative is merely an effort to bring the letter of the law into sync with the spirit of national decay, since many thousands of illegal abortions are...

The World Before Racial Hypersensitivity

Imagine a world in which one can actually describe the human species concretely, as one finds it, without measuring every utterance against the ever-changing barometer of political correctness. Imagine a language that actually communicates positively, naturally, rather than forever masking itself in unnecessary, propagandized euphemism in order to avoid the ultimate progressive sin of “offending” someone’s indoctrinated sensitivity and delicateness. Imagine the freedom...

Happy (Korean) Thanksgiving

Wednesday, October 4th is Chuseok, the Korean harvest festival, a major national holiday scheduled according to the lunar calendar. The event has no strictly religious significance or affiliation, but is rather an ancient tradition of families gathering to welcome autumn by enjoying nature’s bounty, typical of any society that remains at least sentimentally attached to its agrarian, agricultural heritage. For a North American...

Some morning like this…

As an indefatigable, some might say incorrigible, walker, one of my peripatetic missions is to try to see the predawn sky each day. For me, the relative loneliness of this time, before normal life commences, is an excellent opportunity for fresh reflection on old ideas, or old reflection on fresh ones. These days, here in Korea, my early morning thoughts frequently settle for...

Tired of John Bolton Yet?

Yes. John Bolton, like a lot of his neoconservative allies, is a very smart and well-spoken man who never met a war he didn’t like — unless someone was asking him to fight it. So naturally he is on Fox News these days drooling with excitement over the possibility of a preemptive strike on North Korea. .@AmbJohnBolton: Every American citizen, has to ask...

South Korea Lurching Blindly Left

On Tuesday, May 9, the Republic of Korea will elect a new president. All signs indicate that the next president will be a socialist, after a decade of governance by the country’s relatively conservative party — a party which, in a desperate attempt to save itself from being tarred with President Park Geun-hye’s recent impeachment, has tellingly rebranded itself as Liberal Korea. Given...

South Korean President Arrested — Imagine That!

South Korea’s ex-President Park Geun-hye was recently impeached and removed from office after a long investigation and widespread public outcry over allegations of extorting corporate donations in exchange for political favors, particularly involving financial benefits to a long-time friend and advisor. In the process, major business leaders, including top Samsung Group executive Lee Jae-yong, have been arrested on charges of bribery. Now, ex-President...
