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...

Peace (At Any Price) on the Korean Peninsula

North Korea has ceremonially detonated a bunch of lookout points near the Demilitarized Zone, in a show of good faith toward the peace process on the Korean peninsula. As one might expect, this has U.S. Republicans, i.e., Trump supporters, resuming their chants of “Nobel Prize! Nobel Prize!” Not to rain on anyone’s parade…well, yes, to rain on everyone’s parade, here’s an alternative view...

North Korea Dismantling Nukes!!! (in a language in which “dismantling nukes” translates as “Trump cultists are morons”)

Two days ago, there were reports that North Korea has begun dismantling a rocket testing site they had pledged to destroy during Kim Jong-un’s International Respectability Coming Out Party Guest Starring Donald “Big Button” Trump. Rational observers, who do not live for evidence that Trump is the Second Coming — or rather that Jesus Christ was the placeholder for Trump — know that...

North Korea Actually Expects Trump to Do What He Promised — Imagine That!

The U.S. is boasting that Secretary of State Pompeo’s recent meeting with Kim Jong-un’s tyranny was a great success, with much happy-go-lucky progress being made toward denuclearization. The Kim regime, meanwhile, is singing a very different tune, expressing dismay and frustration that the U.S. seems to be trying to push the Norks into “unilateral denuclearization,” which is not what they signed on for. ...

Peace In Our Time: North Korea Edition

Here’s a new headline from the Washington Post: “North Korea working to conceal key aspects of its nuclear program, U.S. officials say.” Can you believe it? Frankly, I can’t. I mean, Super-Genius promised Americans that the North Korean threat was over, and that they could sleep well, secure in the knowledge that Kim Jong-un was a great guy after all.  But seriously, the...

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...
