No Collusion! (Just Good Old-Fashioned Surrender)

Last year, when Trump’s supporters, Trump’s skeptics, and many of Trump’s alleged Democratic opponents were chanting or at least conceding that a Nobel Peace Prize might be in the offing in light of his “new approach” to the North Korean threat, I was almost a lone voice calling the whole thing a typical Trump flim-flam show, and highlighting the essential surrender to communists...

Yes, he is that weak

Lest anyone imagine that Trump’s boasting this week about his ability to bankrupt a nation even faster than he can bankrupt a business is limited to matters of mere economic survival, the Orange God himself has taken pains to remind Americans that he is just as brave and unprecedented in promoting moral bankruptcy.   As Dana over at Patterico’s site observes: It speaks...

Okay, now you can say you’ve seen everything

Here is the latest foreign policy statement from U.S. President Donald J. Trump: After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)! —...

America: Global Tyranny’s Best Friend

North Korea is executing men because Donald Trump said no to a deal that should never have been on the table in the first place; meanwhile, Trump fluffs his feathers and squawks about his great friendship with the beloved murderer, whom he trusts, Kim Jong Un. Trump has thus occasioned executions merely for his vanity, for his cowardice, for his foolish and failed...

Tyranny Unhinged (Updated)

Donald Trump, progressive demagogue extraordinaire, continues to follow through on his three-year-long effort to prove, to himself and to the world, that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue without losing a single supporter. Today, I see that Trump has not only reiterated his oft-stated buffoonish “confidence” that Kim Jong Un will “keep his promise” to Trump — though neither Trump nor...

You Know You’re a Failed Yes-man When…

Kim Jong Un, a fat baby who is cleverly playing up to the Infant President Donald Trump to string America along in his play for international legitimacy and permanent protection, has temporarily revived his tough guy negotiating position — probably a smart choice, given that this was the stance that scared Trump into making a million unrequited concessions to him in the first...

Nobel Prize, Here We Come!

Steve Wood at Newsblender asks, with regard to the upcoming Trump-Kim Clown Show II, why anyone should put any stock in these “negotiations,” or trust that North Korea’s intentions this time around are any different than in previous moments of false hope, such as during the Clinton administration. Here, yet again, and for what it’s worth, are three main differences between this time...

Fat Cat Foreign Policy Hypocrisy

Can someone please explain to me why the Trump administration is taking a hardline, seemingly principled stand against Maduro’s crumbling socialist regime in Venezuela, while petting and praising Kim Jong-un’s far more deadly, far longer-lasting communist catastrophe in North Korea? Venezuela is of relatively little strategic interest to the United States, while North Korea is situated at the heart of a major point...

Red New Deal, Green New Deal

Donald Trump stood in front of his nation and the world during his State of the Union Address and, for the umpteenth time, boasted of his excellent relationship with the talented and wonderful communist punk Kim Jung Un. Meanwhile, the new vanguard of the Democratic Party, in defiance of their party’s establishment enforcer, Nancy Pelosi, has boldly released Mao’s Cultural Revolution manifesto as...

Understanding the North Korean Dynamic

North Korea has just issued a “surprisingly blunt” warning to the world that they will not denuclearize until the U.S. has fully removed its “nuclear threat.” Here’s the key concept from the North’s statement: “The United States must now recognize the accurate meaning of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and especially, must study geography,” the statement said. “When we talk about the...
