How Trump gained the upper hand
in North Korea talks

CNBC, by Daniel L. Davis, LTC, US Army, Ret.

Original Article

Posted By:Pete Stone, 4/26/2018 4:10:17 PM

President Donald Trump recently confirmed that Secretary of State-designate Mike Pompeo secretly met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un over Easter weekend, increasing the chances that Trump and Kim may have substantive talks when they meet. If the administration stays on track, it is possible the talks may significantly reduce the threat of war on the Korean peninsula, strengthen America´s overall national security, and achieve a diplomatic feat that none of the previous 12 presidents were able to realize. There is justification for cautious optimism: For the first time ever, the leaders of North and South Korea will meet

Kim Chi is holding several Americans, Japanese (and surely other nationalities) hostage.

President Trump should not meet with him until they´re all released. Period.

MAGA Or else.

NK´s nuclear missile launch and testing site has collapsed. Chinese satellite photo of the mountain for underground missile launch and testing is caved in, flattened due to geological stress. Chinese experts are saying the facility cannot be rebuilt, it´s totaled and has a potential for radiation leaks that could affect China and SK.

Time is on America’s side only as long as President Trump is in office. The return of a socialist in the Oval Office will produce disaster!

IMO, all UniParty Presidents were negotiating with the Kims under a tacit assumption that their regime and power was unquestioned. It was South Korea´s independence and America´s presence that was being debated. Trump seems to have turned that on its head. Making the Rocket Man an offer he couldn´t refuse
.The carrot will be the face saver. Kim is negotiating far above his pay grade.

Bitcoin is crashing. Here’s what

Bitcoin is now nearly a third of its record high of nearly $20,000 reached last December. To investors worried bitcoin´s bursting bubble could spill over into equities, one market watcher says the crisis is contained. "There are things to be concerned about in terms of the stock market here with emerging markets and other issues, but I don´t think bitcoin is going to be one of them," Matt Maley, equity strategist at Miller Tabak, told CNBC´s "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. Maley understands the fear, though. The steep rise and sharp fall in bitcoin prices is reminiscent of the 1990s dot-com

First 3D Printed Carbon-Fiber Bike
a ‘Technological Marvel’
Thomas Industry Update, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pete Stone- 6/13/2018 1:47:21     Post Reply
According to Bicycling.com, the modern carbon-fiber bike is “a technological marvel” based on its superior strength over traditional metal bikes, at a fraction of the weight. So why isn’t everyone hopping on one of these top-notch bikes to pedal around town? Two reasons – the cost is insane and, say the experts at Bicycling.com, carbon-fiber can be a manufacturing nightmare. Typical problems mostly relate to quality control, in a production environment that requires lots of labor and precision, which is why the Silicon Valley startup Arevo intends to upend the process with 3D printing. The company has a

A study conducted by AAA last month found that 73 percent of Americans don’t trust the current iteration of autonomous vehicle technology. That number is up from 63 percent as noted in late 2017. The study also found that: Only 20 percent of Americans said that they’d trust riding in a driverless vehicle. The largest decline in trust came from Millennials, with 64 percent saying that they wouldn’t ride in a driverless car. This compares with 49 percent who offered the same opinion in late 2017. Baby Boomers were still the most fearful of driverless cars, with 71 percent saying they

The deadly van attack in Toronto is shining a spotlight on the controversial, often misogynistic world of "incels." The term incel is short for "involuntarily celibate," and the community that uses the label is typically dominated by men voicing frustration online about their lack of sexual relationships, sometimes blaming women for their failures with the opposite sex. Toronto police said Tuesday that Alek Minassian, the 25-year-old suspected of driving the van that plowed into pedestrians on a busy stretch of Yonge Street in Toronto´s north end Monday, killing 10 people, is alleged to have published "a cryptic post on

The man arrested after allegedly plowing into pedestrians along a strip of one of Toronto´s busiest streets on Monday is expected to be charged with a 14th count of attempted murder in addition to the 10 counts of first-degree murder he already faces. Alek Minassian, 25, of Richmond Hill, Ont., was arrested after a white van left a trail of death and injury down a busy stretch of Yonge Street in north Toronto. At a news conference Tuesday, police said little about any possible motive Minassian may have had, but did refer to a "cryptic" message posted on his

Cost of Trump´s Affairs

President Donald Trump is a man of low moral character. We know, “this just in.” Having led a very public life, nearly every American knows that Trump cheated on his first wife with his second and that he has generally been a philandering playboy. So in that sense it gets little more than a shrug when we hear that he had other affairs while married a third time. That was true of Stormy Daniels, and it’s true of Karen McDougal, who told CNN Thursday of her consensual 10-month affair with Trump from 2006 to 2007, before he was president.

If midterm elections were held today, five Senate Democrats would lose to Republicans, giving the GOP an even bigger edge in the chamber, according to new surveys from Axios/SurveyMonkey. According to the results, Democratic Sens. Jon Tester of Montana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Joe Donnelly of Indiana are trailing generic Republican candidates. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri trails the state´s Republican attorney general, Josh Hawley, in her re-election bid. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota will face Rep. Kevin Cramer, although Axios polled Heitkamp´s chances against a generic Republican candidate. As it stands now, Democrats have a better

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

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. 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,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

A Guatemalan asylum-seeker sued the Trump administration on Tuesday for ´forcibly´ separating her from her seven-year-old son after they crossed the border in May. Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia was never indicted for illegally entering the country, but officials won´t tell where her son Darwin is, according to her lawsuit filed Tuesday in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C. against 6 federal agencies and 10 senior officials. Mejia-Mejia´s lawsuit is believed to be the first to challenge the government´s removal of a specific child from a parent in the course of upholding federal immigration law. It opens up a new legal front
