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

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/15/2018 3:55:36 PM

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.

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.

President Trump had to go through this drill before he moves to take a look at his military options. One way or the other, North Korea is going to lose its nuclear weapons, right now, it is up to Chairman Kim how that happens.

#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 ....

Here´s why it matters that Americans are
having fewer children than ever before
Fox News, by Jeremy Carl    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/20/2018 4:33:17     Post Reply
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

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.

The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET.

Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap

Last week I reported that Internet sleuths had winkled out the name of the spy/agent provocateur that Obama´s intelligence officers had used on the Trump campaign. The New York Times and Washington Post, the Democrats´ semi-official newspapers this week megaphoned the instigators, offering up their justifications without naming his name. Again, the name is Stefan Halper, who, as I wrote here last week, was paid a substantial sum by the Department of Defense´s Office of Net Assessment. If it was for this work – and it suspiciously looks like it because the payments were made in July and September of 2016

WASHINGTON – Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) predicted that the Republican Party’s “genetic attachment” to the National Rifle Association “might actually cost them” seats in midterm elections. “It’s not as if we are convincing people what the right thing to do is. We’ve won the argument – 90 percent of Americans think that we should have universal background checks. Today, 67 percent of Americans, two-thirds of Americans think that should regulate the purchase and sale of assault weapons,” Murphy said at the Center for American Progress Ideas Conference on Tuesday. Murphy said the Republican Party’s relationship with the NRA has become more important

Boston — The former mayor of New Orleans is being honored for his leadership in removing Confederate memorials in his city. Mitch Landrieu will be presented with the 2018 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for standing behind his decision to take down four monuments. The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation is paying tribute to Landrieu for taking the action despite legal challenges and outright threats from those who insist the Confederacy is an important part of New Orleans’ heritage. President Kennedy’s grandson, Jack Schlossberg, is scheduled to make Sunday night’s presentation.
