N. Korea cancels high-level talks with
S. Korea, threatens to nix U.S. summit

Yonhap News Agency [Seoul, South Korea], by Staff

Original Article

Seoul - North Korea said Wednesday it is canceling high-level talks with South Korea and threatened to pull out of a summit with the United States over the allies´ ongoing military exercises. The North´s Korean Central News Agency said the Max Thunder drills between the South Korean and U.S. air forces are a rehearsal for invasion of the North and a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties. It also called into question whether next month´s summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump can go ahead as planned. "This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across

Comments:
The negotiations between President Trump and Kim Jong-un are akin to a high stakes poker game. President Trump holds one card that Kim can´t fight against. That is, we control the devastating sanctions against his country, which will not be lifted till "all" previously stated results, such as the decentralization of North Korea are met. Kim has much to win, but more to lose if he continues to bluff his people into oblivion.

Kim probably thought all this talk of reconciliation and talks would loosen the political resolve of our president and cause him to soften his demands....wrong! This would have worked for the spineless obama and by now he would be sending planeloads of cash to NK.

In the past, he´s threatened war every time these joint exercises approached. Never happened, of course, and this is just more bluster. Stay the course, Mr. President.

It´s an odd way to get a deal, making threats to the one that holds all the cards. Rocket Man is trying to pull one over on Trump and the West. Trump knows how to test his enemies. If fat man blinks, Trump wins.

Give Trump credit for not claiming victory before it happens. There has been way too much talk of a Nobel prize, the dance of joy over bringing KJU to his knees. He may back out, he may never have been serious, but given what to expect of any sole ruler, it is entirely possible the deal could be squelched by painting a picture of capitulation. There are times to shut the hell up.

#20, I agree. China is playing both sides of the street. Never forget they are our enemy and their desire is to best us in every aspect. If they can make the President lose face, they will. If, however, they see he is going to be successful, they want in on the glory. Patience, grasshopper. The President is more than aware of their cunning. He’s no novice and knows he is sitting in the catbird seat.

Iran has a part in this as well. Iran has been an ally in terror for North Korea and they have been sharing nuke technology. With the hatred of Bolton and mentions of Libya, again that indicates Iran. Once North Korea changes their tune, Iran is further isolated, something they will work to avoid.

Bringing President Trump’s aide John Bolton up is nothing but a diversion by the North Koreans, as Trump aides don’t make final negotiating positions in the Trump Administration. The North Koreans probably came to the conclusion that they are not going to be able to bluff Trump as they did Bush and Obama. Remember what happened in Libya was just another Obama-Hillary Clinton foreign policy fiasco that sent that country back into the dark ages.

I believe #20 is correct. There are several pieces in play here.

The Chinese want to try to get something out of the trade negotiations with the President´s team.

Having traveled there recently, obvious to me that the Chinese economy is a house of cards at best within a restless population. But, they hold some cards too, such as willingness to keep buying US Treasuries to help keep the US government afloat.

Chinese Pres. Xi Jinping wants to keep NK under his wing not the USA´s. So Kimmie tells the USA what Xi want him to say. Kimmie is a useful idiot at this stage, but, doesn´t know it yet.

As directed by Xi, Kimmie foolishly wants to understand President Trump´s red lines. Careful what you wish for, Kimmie. Kimmie now sees Iran in the mix and wants to see where Trump goes with this now that the USA is out of the nuke "deal". Again, careful what you wish for, Kimmie.

Kimmie, when is Xi expecting you to report back to him on progress with Trump?

Other than Xi/Kimmie stirring the pot, nothing else to see here. Kimmie´s meeting-canceling antics is just theater.

Nothing to be concerned about. During the 1950´s Peace Talks in Korea, the parties wrangled over the size and shape of the table for eons. Later all the Ivy League "universities" gave classes on debating about shapes of tables for future "peace talk" negotiators.

I assume the president wanted the talks to occur and has enjoyed the positive PR since the announcement of the June summit. Postponing the military exercise until after the summit doesn´t seem unreasonable or a sign of US weakness.

As noted earlier, this is an annual ploy of the NK resident Kim, However, there may be opportunity here.

President could play the game and agree - show of statesmenship, etc. while still retaining the card at anytime Kim faltered.

President could ignore the challenge as in the past and call the Kim bluff with threat of more sanctions if talks not held.

President could invite Kim´s forces to join (or Kim to observe) the exercise.

President could decide that Kim´s threat is actually a Chinese play card in the game and call the Chinese President to knock it off or face other economic consequences.

Or the President could ask how would Hillary or Kerry handle this and fork over billions of dollars in bribe money.

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. I guess that´s why PDJT gets paid the big bucks. Oh, wait ....

New York - A Florida city falsely sent out a “zombie alert” during a recent power outage. The Palm Beach Post reported that city administrators appeared to send a text alert to all residents around 1:45am Sunday that read “power outage and zombie alert for residents of Lake Worth and Terminus”. “There are now far less than seven thousand three hundred and eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity. Restoration time uncertain,” the alert read in all capital letters and red lettering. Terminus is the name of the city in the popular television show The Walking Dead. Power was

Washington - The United States on Tuesday imposed sanctions on five Iranians it said had provided Yemen’s Houthis with expertise and weaponry that were then used to launch missiles at cities and oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia. In a statement, the U.S. Treasury named the individuals as Mehdi Azarpisheh, Mohammad Jafari, Mahmud Kazemabad, Javad Shir Amin, and Sayyed Mohammad Tehrani. It said the first four individuals had worked with the Houthis through Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, while Tehrani had helped with the financing of the Revolutionary Guard.

Mr. Pence told Fox News that Pyongyang should not try to seek concessions from the U.S. in the planned June 12 denuclearization talks in Singapore. “It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong-un to think he could play Donald Trump,” Mr Pence said, according to excerpts of an interview made available by Fox.

The teenager accused of the massacre at a Texas high school Friday could be out of prison in 40 years and will definitely not be executed. Dimitrios Pagourtzis is 17 and the Supreme Court has barred both the death penalty and life without parole as cruel and unusual punishment for criminals under 18, according to a legal analysis by USA Today. The 2005 case of Roper v. Simmons said juveniles could not be executed, even if they’re legally considered adults in their state, because they are too immature and their brains underdeveloped.

China has taken a major step towards the first ever landing on the dark side of the moon. The country´s space agency launched a relay satellite that is part of a groundbreaking programme to explore the distant side of our nearest neighbour. The dark side of the moon still remains mostly mysterious to us, facing away from Earth and being largely cut off from communications. China´s satellite, lofted into space aboard a Long March-4C rocket, will facilitate communication between controllers on Earth and the Chang´e 4 mission, the China National Space Administration said on its website.

It happens every 405,000 years. The Earth’s orbit gradually changes shape from almost circular to slightly elliptical over a period of 202,500 years, and then starts returning to form over the next 202,500 years — like a metronome swinging side to side. Right now, we are in an almost perfectly circular orbit around the sun, and soon — within some thousands of years, that is — we will start moving toward the elliptical. This happens because of the Earth’s gravitational interactions with other planets, especially Jupiter and Venus — Jupiter because it is very large, and Venus because it is very near.

Tokyo - Foreign journalists will be allowed to journey deep into the mountains of North Korea this week to observe the closing of the country’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site in a much-touted display of goodwill before leader Kim Jong Un’s planned summit with President Donald Trump next month. Expect good imagery, but not much else. The public display of the closure of the facility on Mount Mantap will likely be heavy on spectacle and light on substance. And the media will be spending much of their time in an unrelated tourism zone that North Korea hopes will be the next big thing for its economy if Kim’s

Americans and Europeans are abandoning parenthood at an alarming rate, profoundly changing the nature of our societies, our politics and our cultures. Last year, women in the U.S. had children at the lowest rate ever recorded. There were just 60.2 births for every 1,000 girls and women ages 15 to 44 in our country. As a result, there were fewer births in America last year – 3.85 million babies – than at any time since 1987. This was a 2 percent drop from 2016. In addition, those having the most children are least able to pay for their upbringing. American women became mothers last year at rates that were inversely proportional to

"My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

Pope Francis has reportedly told a gay man that "God made you that way and loves you as you are," apparently pushing the pontiff´s acceptance of homosexuality to a new level. Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais. Cruz was quoted as having discussed his homosexuality with Francis. "He told me: ´Juan Carlos, I

Former Secretary of State John Kerry warned President Donald Trump Sunday that Democrats are not afraid to go against his “America First” policies. “We won’t win, any of us, ultimately, by retreating within our borders, by focusing on our own nations only, or by going it alone,” Kerry told those gathered at New York University’s Abu Dhabi’s commencement ceremony Sunday — a direct reference to the president’s “America First” trade and immigration policies. Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was

A New Jersey high school is under fire after it released prom tickets that encouraged students to ´party like it´s 1776´. Cherry Hill High School East designed the prom tickets to commemorate that the dance was being held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. But the ´insensitive´ language offended members of the student body, prompting an immediate apology from principal Dennis Perry. ´I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,´ Perry wrote in a letter posted to Twitter on Friday. (Snip) ´I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

At the end of all the scandal and drama, all of the breathlessly reported lies and false accusations, at the end of all the money wasted on some zany kabuki swamp dance choreographed to the thrumming of giant bullfrogs and yipping of excited coyotes — at the end of all of this — it comes down to precisely what we said it was a year and a half ago. The Obama administration — with or without the knowledge and direction of President Obama himself — perverted one of the most powerful, clandestine spying operations in the world and used it at the very height of a presidential campaign to spy on political opponents,

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.
