Obama-era diplomat calls North Korea´s

´vague´ as commentators warn Trump´s*

President Donald Trump labeled North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un a ´worthy negotiator´ and a ´very smart negotiator´ after their historic meeting – and many Korea experts believe Kim got the better end of the bargain. Many experts parsing over the joint statement released by the two men following their meeting in Singapore have found the paper they inked lacking in specifics – and lacking explicit language that might lead to verifiable compliance by a regime that has flaunted similar agreements in the past. Mintaro Oba, a Korea expert who served in the State Department under President Obama, dismissed the joint statement as

Comments:
*big summit could add up to nothing

Mintaro Oba - is part of the problem as most of these guys are. Trump, although he may fail, he is trying to be part of the solution. We need more Trumps than we need more Oba´s.

It’s finny because this kind of goals setting is now typical for businesses (see AGILE business process) identify simple, defineable and achievable goals in the initial process. Then continue design meetings fleshing out the details for the goals into concrete terms. Then work out the details and plans you’ll need to achieve those concrete terms.

This is stage one.

It’s odd that a “learned” diplomat doesn’t understand the concept.

I am so damn sick of the Left. They had president that did absolutely nothing for America...Except what he could pay bribes for... Trump is called stupid and incompetent and incompetent... yet he created a billion dollar company on his own... Yes he borrowed a little from his father, that he paid back in full, how many os the left can do that? I agree soros did it, but I means how many politicians and talk heads did that? How "stupid" can he be? Here is a non-politician who had experience conversing with important people around the world due to his work with building.. He is MORE experience than the loser Obama ever wanted to be. Trump is amazingly competent! How many of you know anyone like him? How many pf you know a billionaire? I have known multi- millionaires but a billion dollars is o much more! I jaut say that he is much more amazing than I ever knew.. I like him in the 80´s due to some of his books. i thought he was smart, but my goodness He is gifted. I hope he follows the Lord... He says he does but I would like to hear his testimony before knowing... I don´t hold his past against him... David did some things that were very wrong, and so have others. Trump has really helped this country and I pray he continues to do keep doing it. And he will!

Korea experts? They have not been able to gain an inch of progress since the Korean war ended in an embarrassing standoff. Trump is now the Korea expert, get used to it, democrats, journalists, pseudo intellectuals and all other Never-Trumpers. He´s making you all look like the fools you are.

Why must we always hear from the people that always get it wrong? Why should we listen to their advice?
They were wrong before. They´re out of the loop, and wrong now. And if their record is any indication, they will be wrong in the future too.
Good gosh, they should have to pay to pontificate, not the other way around. They should have to have skin in the game.
We´d have a lot fewer blowhard ´experts´.
And, we´d have to pay for and endure a lot fewer of them and their associated failures.
Also, no one associated with, Soros, Bezos, Carlos-Slim, Buffet, Gates, Obama, Clinton, etc. gets to play either. They´ve all done more than enough already.

Before the election in 2016, the Demon-RATs were screaming that Trump would get us into a nuclear war with North Korea if he was elected.

Instead, for the first time in history, we have a reasonable chance that the Korean peninsula will be nuclear-free and at peace!!!!!

Of course, Ovomit couldn´t do any of that in 8 years of trying. And THAT just kills Ovomit´s syncopates!!!!

And, in my book, that is a very GOOD thing!!!!!!

Well, it´s different this time, because we haven´t already PAID HIM OFF with food aid, nitwit.

The 0bama era diplomacy can be defined as "Pay to Play", where the US pays, and the other side plays.

Roughly the same comments were made by Nancy Pelosi. Guess they are the lefty talking points. It will bed a cold day before they give Trump any credit. Doubt there will be any sudden changes in US/NK relations, but at least a different direction has been laid out. If that´s not enough for the left, that´s their problem. Time will tell how things change with NK.

Obama and Clinton gave them money and technology. The Norks cheated on the deal. You can´t get the money or technology back.

Trump gave them a promise to not hold war games. If the Norks cheat then the war games can immediately be started right back.

Much better deal.

The New York Post, America’s finest daily newspaper, finds itself at odds, like the rest of the country, over the hottest issue of the moment – immigration. Even saying that is not so simple. Because we’re really talking about ILLEGAL immigration (50,000 each month) and unaccompanied alien children showing up by the thousands in search of asylum. The argument takes a nasty turn over the wisdom of separating kids from their parents. Some say this is cruel. The government says it’s the law. The Post says – “Stop breaking up families.” Faulting Trump, so runs its lead editorial to start the week. (Separating families,

Michelle Obama traded workout clothes for a chic suit as she went out to lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former first lady looked perfectly chic for her business lunch as she dined at the Gjelina restaurant in Venice. Michelle swapped out her usual jewel tones with a softer palate of pastels for the meeting. She opted for light green wide-leg trousers and a suit jacket done in matching green and black stripes, topping the look off with a simple white shirt and sandals. The former first lady also shielded her face with an oversized pair of pastel pink sunglasses

Steve Levitan announced he would no longer be renewing a tenth season of Modern Family with 20th Century Fox after Laura Ingraham´s controversial comment Monday about immigration detention centers.

Ingraham said during her segment on The Ingraham Angle: ´As more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents. ´And temporarily housed at what are, essentially, summer camps.´

Richard Branson’s healthcare firm has pocketed £2million of public money by suing the NHS. Virgin Care took High Court action after losing out on an £82million contract to provide children’s medical services in Surrey. The work was handed to a rival group of in-house NHS providers and a social enterprise firm last year. Virgin Care claimed there were ‘serious flaws in the procurement process’ and secured an out-of-court settlement in November. Newly-released accounts show that six clinical commissioning groups and NHS England paid Virgin Care £1.565million. Surrey County Council handed over another

Donald Trump will lose another senior aide in just two weeks, as Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations Joe Hagin leaves the administration. Hagin, the president´s point-man on last week´s nuclear summit with North Korea´s dictator, made headlines for keeping Trump in the dark about key details negotiated in advance – so he couldn´t tweet them. He was left with egg on his face weeks earlier in Singapore, when the North Korean delegation scheduled to attend pre-summit meetings stood the American team up. But his final mark on Washington could be his link to key backers of an alleged cult known as NXIVM

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,
