New York Times Claims With Zero Proof That Trump Will Let Kim Jong Un Keep Nuclear Weapons

Yesterday, President Trump became the first US president to cross into North Korea when he met briefly with Kim Jong Un at Panmunjom. Whether you think this was real or a photo opportunity, a couple of things were indisputable. The meeting occurred based on personal diplomacy on the part of Trump. The meeting was a first of its kind. North Korea has not tested a ballistic missile or nuke in nearly two years. Sanctions against North Korea are now more robust in scope and in enforcement than at anytime the past several decades.

One would think that anyone who doesn’t want war on the Korean Peninsula would be in favor of Winston Churchill’s maxim of “jaw-jaw is better than war-war.” But that doesn’t seem to be the case. There seems to be a substantial stream of thought within diplomatic circles that war with North Korea is, indeed, preferable to no war occurring and Donald Trump getting some credit for either the reduction in hostilities or, heaven forfend, an actual diplomatic breakthrough. Here is an example of a person or persons within the State Department attempting to torpedo Trump’s diplomatic efforts by painting them as caving to Kim.

But for weeks before the meeting, which started as a Twitter offer by the president for Mr. Kim to drop by at the Demilitarized Zone and “say hello,” a real idea has been taking shape inside the Trump administration that officials hope might create a foundation for a new round of negotiations.

The concept would amount to a nuclear freeze, one that essentially enshrines the status quo, and tacitly accepts the North as a nuclear power, something administration officials have often said they would never stand for.

It falls far short of Mr. Trump’s initial vow 30 months ago to solve the North Korea nuclear problem, but it might provide him with a retort to campaign-season critics who say the North Korean dictator has been playing the American president brilliantly by giving him the visuals he craves while holding back on real concessions.

While the approach could stop that arsenal from growing, it would not, at least in the near future, dismantle any existing weapons, variously estimated at 20 to 60. Nor would it limit the North’s missile capability.

The administration still insists in public and in private that its goals remain full denuclearization. But recognizing that its maximalist demand for the near-term surrender of Mr. Kim’s cherished nuclear program is going nowhere, it is weighing a new approach that would begin with a significant — but limited — first step.

From the good ol’ NeverTrump right:

And from the Obama alumni:

Notice anything similar?

Here are two themes that permeate all reporting on the subject.

1. Kim will not give up his nuclear arsenal. How do we know this? We don’t. We know he won’t/can’t give it up under current circumstances–both internally and externally–but we don’t know what circumstances would convince him to do so. The same geniuses that convinced themselves that their god-king could woo the Iranian mullahs into agreeing to put aside their nuclear and territorial ambitions and become a good-faith partner in the Middle East are now trying to convince us that yes, they can actually distinguish their ass from a hot rock.

2. Trump is a naif in search of adulation who is being played by wily Kim. Nothing. I say again, nothing in Kim’s foreign policy indicates that either he or his advisers have any sophistication or even a sense of how little anyone in the West not called South Korea thinks about them. There is no doubt that Kim does have a game here. Ideally, he’d like to trade meetings for relaxed sanctions. Unfortunately for him, the rejection of Trump, from his friends and enemies, would be nearly universal and immediate if he did so. Kim actually has a greater need of the meetings with Trump for his own domestic consumption. Trump undoubtedly likes the notoriety of meeting with Kim because, I suspect, of the people who befoul themselves but there’s no evidence that he’s willing to go back on a position he’s unambiguously staked out.

While we have no idea of the source(s) for the NYT piece, we do have two on-the-record comments.

On Sunday evening, the State Department’s envoy to North Korea, Stephen E. Biegun, said that this account of the ideas being generated in the administration was “pure speculation” and that his team was “not preparing any new proposal currently.”

“What is accurate is not new, and what is new is not accurate,” he said.

John Bolton has weighed in:

Taken in its most favorable light, the source for this is a loser who is very happy to lose. It is someone who really believes that Kim has outmaneuvered this president, just like all presidents before him, and that our best bet is to try to save some face by agreeing to give the North Koreans what they want under the fig leaf of a “freeze” that can no more be verified than can anything else in North Korea today.

If you take it at its most cynical, it is simply an attempt to undercut the Administration by giving their enemies at home and abroad aid and comfort. It is trying to damage Trump domestically by insisting, in absence of all evidence, that the administration is not serious about ridding North Korea of nukes and it is trying to give Kim hope that by holding out he’ll get rid of sanctions and keep his nukes.

The underlying assumptions in this article are simply at odds with the facts. If meeting with Kim makes him more secure at home, he has a greater ability to cut a deal that will be opposed by a large swath of the North Korean ruling elite and that is good. Every day that passes under sanctions, the North Korean government grows weaker and is less able to pursue whatever douchebaggery it would otherwise be up to, that is also good. If we are talking we aren’t shooting, also a big plus. Needless to say, this in not a timed event. Either a deal will materialize or it will not. The worst possible course for the Trump administration would to be cutting a deal with the DPRK locking in their ability to deliver nuclear weapons to the United States after abrogating an deal that ostensibly kept Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Trump knows this. His advisers know this. His enemies here and abroad know this.

Mini AOC Is Back and She’s Just as Upset About Things as the Real AOC

Westlake Legal Group ava-martinez-aoc-episode-2-SCREENSHOT-620x330 Mini AOC Is Back and She’s Just as Upset About Things as the Real AOC Satire Mini-AOC immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story fake empty parking lot comedy border AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

It’s kind of sad when a young girl can show up Saturday Night Live in her mockery of the Democrat’s de-facto leader, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Nothing is more ripe for satire than someone who takes themselves way too seriously, and the fact that a child is doing the job comedians should be doing is a sad telling of the state of affairs in our society.

Thankfully, the child is good at it.

As you’ve likely seen by now, AOC was at the border looking beyond upset as she watched border patrol agents mistreat migrant children and heard them like cattle into horrible conditions.

What she saw was horrific, it was cruel, it was unjustifiable.

It was just an empty parking lot.

Superb.

The young girl known as Mini-AOC, popular for her videos mimicking the democratic socialist sweetheart is back and is also super upset. As you can see, she too is distraught over the closure of her neighborhood park. She too has uploaded pictures so you can see her unbelievable sadness.

In an age where outrage is the name of the game, nothing pleases me more than to watch mockery make a comeback. Nothing deserves it more than AOC’s sad attempt at faux outrage and ginned up emotion, and Mini-AOC might be the best person running in terms of mocking the congresswoman. Sure, we can prove her wrong and make snarky comments, but Mini-AOC is the best satire account going that mocks her.

At least until Twitter shuts her down for violating some nebulous community standard.

Until that time, I hope to see way more out of Mini-AOC.

Hard-Left Site ThinkProgress Is Up for Sale Thanks to a Loss of Millions of Dollars

Westlake Legal Group learn-to-code-620x413 Hard-Left Site ThinkProgress Is Up for Sale Thanks to a Loss of Millions of Dollars ThinkProgress Politics learn to code Internet George W. Bush Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats center for American progress Allow Media Exception

What used to be bastions of leftist news and thought are collapsing like a house of cards as the Trump administration thunders forward despite their best efforts. Leftist news sites have been facing layoffs and cutbacks left and right, and the once mighty anti-Bush site ThinkProgress is now facing its own problems.

According to the Daily Beast the house that the Center for American Progress built is up for sale due to what is being described as “severe financial strains during the Trump era”:

“Unfortunately, like so many other news outlets that have relied on advertising to fund its work, ThinkProgress has seen a significant drop in revenue in recent years, along with other financial strains. In addition, events over the last few years have underscored the divergent missions of American Progress and ThinkProgress,” said Navin Nayak, executive director of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

“For all of these reasons, we announced to the ThinkProgress staff today that we are searching for a new publisher for the news site. This is a tough decision since ThinkProgress has been a part of CAP Action almost since its founding. While ThinkProgress’ financial challenges are unsustainable for an organization like CAP Action, we are hopeful that there are publishers who would be better able to support ThinkProgress’ mission and better positioned to maximize the significant value ThinkProgress has built up.”

The Daily Beast listed these financial troubles as a “$3 million gulf between revenues and expenses in 2019” made up of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of ad revenue and contributions that the site just isn’t bringing in any more.

This site still reportedly brings in a solid number of visitors, with 12 million page hits and 7.5 million unique visitors in June. That’s all well and good, but despite this, the pattern continuously seen throughout leftist media is that the interest just isn’t there like it used to be. Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, and CNN are all going through the same problems. These were once powerful sites that found themselves successful during the Democrats’ age of prosperity between the anti-Bush sentiment and the pro-Obama worship.

However, the Trump-era has had a nasty effect on the left who have overreacted in response to someone so bombastic being elected to office. The resulting bitter taste the leftist media has left in the mouths of those who used to consume their product has caused them to walk away.

If you were to ask me, I would advise the staff of ThinkProgress to learn some kind of skill that would help them find work in this digital age ruled by technology. Something that would make them more attractive to those seeking to hire people who have experience with using computers, and have a working knowledge of how this technology works in the background…

…but what skill could that be?

When Will Race-Baiting Kamala Harris Acknowledge She Is A Descendent Of A Slave Owner?

Well known for backing reparations for slavery, Kamala Harris has yet to acknowledge her own slave-owning, human-trafficking ancestor.

A plantation in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, by James Hakewill, 1820s

Last week, at the Democratic debate in Miami, Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala [D-CA] stirred up a racial hornet’s nest against former Vice President Joe Biden for his past pandering to segregationist senators decades ago.

“I do not believe you are a racist and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground,” Harris said, publicly chastising Biden at last week’s debate, “but it’s personal and it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States Senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.”

Harris’ months-in-the-makingmade-for-TV attack on Biden is largely seen as an attempt to lure black voters away from the Democratic frontrunner and to tarnish his image.

To date, however, no one has asked Harris about her own Jamaican family tree, which reportedly goes back to Jamaican plantation and slave owner Hamilton Brown.

Earlier this year, Harris’ father, Donald J. Harris,  reportedly stated:

“My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).”

If Kamala Harris’ father’s account of their genealogy is to be believed, Harris’ family tree goes back to Hamilton Brown, one of the more well-known slave owners in Jamaica.

Hamilton Brown (b. 1776, d. 1843) was an Irish rags-to-riches immigrant to Jamaica who became a wealthy sugar plantation owner and founder of Brown’s Town on the British island colony.

  • Big League Politics has obtained the English registers of Brown’s slaves here.

Although slavery was outlawed by Britain in 1833, as a wealthy plantation owner, Hamilton Brown needed laborers to continue working his fields.

At that point, Brown turned to his native Ireland to recruit poor “Irish slaves” with some success.

“The first vessel known to have done so is the James Ray, a brig belonging to a Mr. Hamilton Brown, an extensive property owner, planting attorney, and Member of Assembly for the parish of St. Ann. In December 1835, the brig left Belfast with one hundred and twenty one Irishmen and their families from Ballymoney, County Antrim, and on arrival in Jamaica they were located on estates and pens in Hamilton Brown’s parish. Some of these immigrants certainly absconded from their locations and enlisted in the police, and on one estate about forty of them chased Hamilton Brown and narrowly missed giving him a sound beating. Undaunted, in late 1836 he despatched his brig to lreland once again; it returned with at least one hundred and eighty five lrish for St. Ann.”

Due to a public outcry in Ireland, the practice of recruiting “Irish slaves” ended a few years before Brown’s death in 1843.

That Democratic primary candidate has injected racism as a weapon against her opponent is not at all surprising.

What is surprising, however, is that while Kamala Harris is attempting to portray herself as a victim, she has yet to acknowledge her own slave-owning, human-trafficking ancestor.

Florida County Found a Great Way to Comfort Shelter Dogs During Fireworks

For dogs who have a hard time with loud noises like thunder or fireworks, Independence Day is a time of high anxiety. This is especially true of shelter dogs who have been through quite a lot in their lives and have to spend the night in the shelter without a person comforting them during the scary noises.

In Brevard County, Florida, they’ve come up with a great solution. Inmates on the chain gang or work release will be spending the peak firework hours of the 4th of July with the animals playing with, reading to, and feeding them treats.

They announced this on their Facebook page after a flood of citizens volunteered to come in to comfort the pups.

BREVARD COUNTY JAIL INMATES WILL BE COMFORTING DOGS AT THE ANIMAL CARE CENTER DURING 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS Recently…

Posted by Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Florida (Official) on Saturday, June 29, 2019

As you can see from the comments on that Facebook post, the people of Brevard County are thrilled about the program. It is well documented that programs that pair prisoners with difficult-to-adopt animals benefit both groups, and this promises to be an evening in which the inmates and dogs can help each other and make the community a better place.

Despicable: Transgender Human Rights Campaign Spox Says Andy Ngo “Intentionally Provoked” His Attack

Westlake Legal Group andy-ngo-assault-SCREENSHOT-620x331 Despicable: Transgender Human Rights Campaign Spox Says Andy Ngo “Intentionally Provoked” His Attack Social Media Politics Oregon North Carolina mob Media LGBTQ LGBT Human Rights Campaign Human Rights Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Charlotte Clymer antifa Andy Ngo Allow Media Exception

Independent journalist Andy Ngo is assaulted at a Portland, OR Antifa demonstration – 6/29/19. Screen grab via The Oregonian.

As Red State‘s Bonchie wrote over the weekend, Quillette editor and independent journalist Andy Ngo was viciously attacked by a mob of Antifa thugs during a Saturday demonstration in Portland, Oregon.

Ngo was so badly beaten that he had to go to the hospital, but according to his attorneys he is on the mend and has been cleared to leave the hospital.

Left-wing journalists and other militant liberals have weighed in with their hot takes, predictably blaming Ngo for the brutal attacks.

But one particularly vile response stood out to me from the rest, and it came from Charlotte Clymer, a transgender “woman” and activist who is also the spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign.

Clymer, who recently laid the ground rules for what “she” says should be considered allowable speech, slithered on to Twitter to tell her followers that Ngo was asking for it:

I tweeted back to Clymer twice, calling out the hypocritical nature of a person who frequently talks about how we must respect differences of opinion blaming Ngo, who is gay, for his assault:

“Imagine working for an organization that supposedly works to protect human rights and then tweeting something like that,” wondered Sam at Twitchy, who documented some of the other responses to Clymer’s vicious attack.

Not only that, but imagine that this same organization decides that person should still continue to be their spokesperson even after saying that a human being asked to be attacked merely for exercising his First Amendment rights. HRC has not only not responded to reports about the bloody assault on Ngo, but also hasn’t uttered a word about Clymer’s vile take on the issue.

Their Twitter bio reads “HRC is the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization. We envision a world where LGBTQ people are ensured equality at home, at work & in every community.”

What an absolute joke. Frauds.

AOC Makes Crazy Allegations After Her Visit to a Detention Facility, but She May Have Been Caught Lying

Westlake Legal Group AlexandriaOcasioCortez-June2019-620x317 AOC Makes Crazy Allegations After Her Visit to a Detention Facility, but She May Have Been Caught Lying water Toilets Texas Politics Migrant Facility Illegal Immigration Ice Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story El Paso democrats CBP Agents CBP AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., listens during questioning at a House Oversight and Reform committee hearing on facial recognition technology in government, Tuesday, June 4, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Today, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supposedly visited a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol facility in El Paso, TX. I say supposedly because whether she even went inside is being called into question, as you’ll see.

In response to her visit, she took to Twitter to make some really out there allegations.

She is first alleging that CBP agents, knowing they were being watched and would have everything reported, sexually and physically threatened her. I honestly have no idea what that actually means, but it sounds like a pretty serious charge. Maybe she could provide some details?

She then goes on to assert that CBP agents, again knowing anything they did would be reported on, told women to drink out of the toilets.

Does anyone really think that sounds believable? Let’s assume that CBP are actually evil nazis torturing people. That’s a ridiculous assumption, but let’s make it for the same of argument. Does anyone believe they would expose their deeds in front of a rabid, open borders ideologue like AOC? That simply doesn’t pass the smell test.

Laughing about what? That would be important to know. Were they joking about a rerun of The Office? Or migrants suffering? AOC again gives no details, which seems to be a theme.

There’s also the question of whether the “toilets” she claims were being drunk out of were actually these.

AOC may not realize what the term “potable” means, it’s a big word after all, but that means it’s safe to drink.

Furthermore, we are supposed to believe that all this happened and the Congressional members just left? No badge numbers, no names, no evidence, and no pressing charges for supposedly being threatened? Makes sense.

Regardless, now questions are arising about whether she even toured the facility at all or is simply repeating false stories she heard from someone else.

So she didn’t even go inside? She just caused a big scene in the pre-tour meeting? Now that sounds completely believable.

AOC is a terrible liar. She’s been caught misrepresenting or making things up numerous times, to the point where she makes Donald Trump blush. Nothing about what she describes sounds realistic. CBP are not going to tell a woman to drink out of the toilet in front of Congressional members, nor are they going to threaten someone while giving a public tour of a facility. Only a partisan so engulfed in AOC’s cult of personality could possibly think those things happened. Of course, there are plenty of those on Twitter defending her right now.

I’ll also point out that her claims are perfectly timed with the release of a ProPublica report that claims to have found a “secret” racist Facebook group containing 9,500 CBP agents. In reality, they’ve managed to confirm three, yes only three, people in the group work for CBP. Yet, the narrative is now spreading far and wide that half the CBP workforce of 20,000 people are in a Facebook group making jokes about dead migrants.

The claims AOC makes here are very, very serious. If any of this actually did happen, she needs to put up some evidence. Otherwise, she needs to apologize for spreading dangerous false information. I have a feeling she won’t do either though because no one ever holds her accountable for anything.

UPDATE:

As I expected, AOC essentially admits she’s repeating something she heard and didn’t actually witness any wrongdoing.

And here are more details about her outburst. She did not actually tour the facility, which was no doubt pre-planned as part of the game she’s playing.

“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] … Crying and screaming and yelling,” said one witness who said he was stunned by the outburst in front of approximately 40 people.

“The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate. But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner … ” the same person said. “They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’”

The congresswoman told the group she would not go with the 13 other House Democrats on the tour of the facility and stayed with the family.

A picture of maturity.

As Red State‘s Alex Parker wrote Sunday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took a sideswipe at Ivanka Trump Saturday after BBC journalist Parham Ghobadi posted a video clip of her attempt at getting involved in a discussion among world leaders during the G-20 summit over the weekend.

To recap, here’s the clip:

Instead of using the clip as an opportunity to boost another woman, as she would have had it been a Democratic female trying to make her mark at a world summit, Ocasio-Cortez – who is notorious for accusing her critics of disliking her not just because she’s a woman but also because she’s a “woman of color” – used her massive platform on Twitter to tear down Trump instead:

Her cult-like followers took Ocasio-Cortez’s lead, and started tweeting out memes of Trump with the hashtag “#UnwantedIvanka.”

Twitchy documented later on about how, after AOC took a considerable amount of heat over her catty remarks, the freshman Congresswoman went on a wild rant about “leadership” that nobody outside of her deluded fan base was buying.

Later, former White House Press Secretary Sanders got wind of AOC’s comments about Trump and took to the Twitter machine weigh in on the matter:

“AOC is wasting your time on Twitter.” Truer words were never spoken.

Beto O’Rourke’s Campaign Heads to Mexico to Pander to Asylum Seekers

2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) campaigns in Charlotte, NC – 4/15/19. Screen grab via ABC News.

Last I checked, illegal immigrants couldn’t vote. I realize Democrats sometimes get confused about that, and apparently Robert “Beto” O’Rourke of Texas is no different than his political California cousins who are known to call illegal immigrants their “constituency.”

According to the Associated Press, O’Rourke made a trip across the the southern border to meet with people from countries like El Salvador and Honduras, and talked about how horrible Trump is for his “cruel and inhumane policies” when it comes to protecting the border:

In his first international trip as a White House hopeful, the former congressman traveled to Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from his native El Paso, Texas, to meet what his campaign described as “individuals and families directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies.”

A fluent Spanish speaker, O’Rourke met around a table at a shelter with immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, some of whom wept as they told of being denied entry into the U.S. while their asylum claims are processed. Many said they were terrified they’d be sent back to their home countries, where their lives had been threatened because of abusive spouses, street gang violence or drug smugglers.

O’Rourke made his trip as public as possible with both a livestream and a large Twitter thread telling individual stories.

O’Rourke ended by reiterating what he said during the Democratic debate, where he called for an end to metering and the Remain in Mexico policy.

The unfortunate thing for O’Rourke is that his pandering to migrants isn’t likely going to help him with votes here in the states. According to an April NPR/Marist poll, Hispanic approval of Trump came in at a shocking 50 percent approval. Other polls have him at various other numbers such as 45 to 30 percent, but one thing that caught the eyes of those watching the polls is that they aren’t budging.

According to the Washington Examiner, Trump’s positions don’t seem to be driving the Hispanic vote away from him as many on both the left and the right thought:

“He starts in a much better place for reelection than when he launched his 2016 campaign,” said Daniel Garza, a Bush administration veteran who runs the Libre Initiative, a Koch network group that encourages Hispanics to embrace conservative policies. “One would think immigration would be a major anchor for him, but he’s turned it into at least a push,” he said, suggesting his policies would neither harm nor help the president.

That’s quite a turnabout for Garza. Here is what he told the Washington Examiner about Trump in August 2015: “His positions are indefensible. I would actually rise up against him.”

O’Rourke’s race to garner the vote from Hispanics may not work out as well as he thinks. He’s pandering to people who either can’t vote or have already decided to vote Democrat whether they’re Hispanic or not. The latter group is more likely, and trying to sway them away from other primary candidates may help boost O’Rourke’s numbers, but it’s not nearly going to be enough.

As far as Democrat voters are concerned, O’Rourke is yesterday’s news. His campaign has been bringing in abysmal numbers thanks to a sudden lack of interest from Democrat voters that were behind him during his run against Texas Senator Ted Cruz. In fact, his popularity has drastically faded so badly that he barely qualified to take the debate stage.

If O’Rourke’s plan to win over the hearts and minds of those willing to get angry over the migrant crisis, he’s got stiff competition in the form of fellow Texas politician Julian Castro. According to Karen Townsend at Hot Air, O’Rourke is calling for an end to certain policies, but Castro is advocating going all the way to open borders, something O’Rourke isn’t quite there on.
