VIDEO Trump Kim Meeting Shows Value of Policy Over Politics – Trump Reagan – ‘Fake News’ Biggest Enemy of USA

Hopefully, this historic Trump/Kim meeting is the beginning of a dialogue that will continue to dial back the tensions. Hopefully, we can soon remove the 30,000 US troops that have been stationed in South Korea for seven decades. One thing Washington must do, however: stay out of the way as much as possible so as to allow the two Koreas to continue their peace process.

When President Reagan met with Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland, on October 11, 1987, it helped put into motion events that would dramatically change the global system. A line of communication was fully opened with an enemy of decades and substantive issues were on the table. Though the summit was initially reported as a failure, with the two sides unable to sign a final agreement, history now shows us that it was actually a great success that paved the way to the eventual end of the Cold War and a reduction in the threat of a nuclear war.

A year later Gorbachev and Reagan met in Washington to continue the dialogue that had been started and the rest is history. Success began as a “failure.”

We are now facing a similar situation with President Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore. As with the Reagan/Gorbachev meetings, detractors on all sides seem determined to undermine and belittle the opening of a door to diplomacy and peace.

The neocons demand that North Korea give up all its bargaining chips up front in return for vague promises of better relations with the US. Yet in the post-Libya era no serious person would jump at such an offer. Their biggest fear is that peace may break out and they are doing everything to prevent that from happening. Conflict is their livelihood.

I also find it disheartening that many Democrat opponents of President Trump who rightly cheered President Obama’s efforts to reach a deal with Iran are now condemning Trump for opening the door to diplomacy with North Korea. Did they genuinely support President Obama’s diplomatic efforts with Iran, or did they just prefer the person who happened to occupy the Oval Office at the time?

The issue is about policy versus politics and I am afraid too many Americans of all political stripes are confusing the two. Many Americans, it seems, would prefer that we continue down the path to a potential nuclear conflict on the Korean peninsula because they do not like the current US president. Does that make any sense? Has politics come to over-rule our common sense to the point we would go against our own interests and even our own lives? Let’s hope not!

The truth is, talking is always better than threatening. Just like trading is always better than sanctioning. Detractors on both sides miss the point while they desperately try to make political points. The current thaw with North Korea began with that country’s participation in the Olympic games in South Korea. From that point, North and South Korea came to see each other as neighbors rather than enemies. That process will continue regardless of what comes from the Trump/Kim summit and it is a process we should cheer.

Hopefully, this historic Trump/Kim meeting is the beginning of a dialogue that will continue to dial back the tensions. Hopefully, we can soon remove the 30,000 US troops that have been stationed in South Korea for seven decades. One thing Washington must do, however: stay out of the way as much as possible so as to allow the two Koreas to continue their peace process.

Donald Trump: ‘Fake News’ the Biggest Enemy of the United States

President Donald Trump lashed out at the “fake news” again, signaling frustration with negative reports about his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

“Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!” he wrote on Twitter.

He specifically singled out NBC and CNN for criticism.

“So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN,” he wrote. “They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have ‘begged’ for this deal-looked like war would break out.”

Despite hosting a press conference in Singapore for over 60 minutes with reporters, establishment media remained heavily critical of Trump’s meeting with Kim.

Nolte: Never Trump Fanatics Go Insane over Trump-Kim Summit

US President Donald Trump (R) gestures as he meets with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (L) at the start of their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018. - Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have become on June …

Never Trump again went insane in the wake of President Trump’s foreign policy triumph with North Korea this week–and not only with hypocrisy. There is a literal insanity in their neurotic need to keep doing the exact same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome.

You will find more than one example in this hodgepodge of stupid:

Let’s first address the Never Trump buttache over the North Korean flag enjoying the same stature as the American flag.

Uhm, yeah, about that…

Please tell me that is not George H.W. Bush of Reagan-Bush fame smiling beneath the hammer and sickle as he shakes hands with the Soviet monster who invaded Lithuania?

Hey, I don’t like seeing the Stars n’ Stripes on equal footing with gangster countries any more than anyone else, but I am also an adult capable of grasping simple concepts like, you know, jingoistic tantrums over symbolism are the diplomatic equivalent of stepping over dollars in search of pennies.

Never Trumpites are also outraged — outraged, I tell you — that 1) Trump shook Kim’s hand on camera and 2)  Trump talked about how the two men built a good working relationship and 3) Trump invited Kim to the United States, all of which is… pretty… much… what… President Reagan did with Mikhail Gorbachev.

Which proves once again that Never Trump’s only guiding principle is being invited on CNN.

Moving on from Never Trump hypocrisy to lunacy…

The insanity on display above is obvious. Never Trump is really interested in only one thing: protecting the status quo, regardless of outcome.

This insanity is not something Never Trump even bothers to hide. This pile is so fresh, it is still steaming: “It is a narcissism that views the status quo, which was forged and maintained by political, diplomatic, and military professionals over the course of 70 years, as a failure rather than a success.”

Let’s put aside what 70 years of the status quo have wrought in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, and focus on North Korea. Those of us who live in the real world, those of us no longer blinded by the hotness of the takes, are still able to recall — because it was only last year — when this precious status quo resulted in a North Korea that held our hostages, launched countless missiles, regularly threatened nuclear war, and was the proud owner of the Punggye-ri nuclear testing facility.

Today, thanks to President Change Agent, those hostages are home, Kim’s missiles have stopped flying, the threats of nuclear war have ceased, and Punggye-ri is reportedly no more.

And if this is as far as Trump gets with Kim, he will still have been more successful with North Korea than any president ever.

Never Trumpers are also pummeling Trump for his “concessions” to Kim (which I’ll address below) but seem to forget the sanctions against North Korea are still in place.

Yes, North Korea has promised to denuclearize in the past, but this time, the agreement has come without sanction relief. This is a huge deal.

And so, all Never Trump has left is to squawk about is a Trump “concession” agreeing to end our joint military exercises with South Korea.

In truth, this “concession” was extremely well played.

First, these military exercises are largely symbolic and have nothing to do with South Korea’s security. Combat readiness can be maintained through other means.

Secondly — and this is important — the next major joint-exercise is not scheduled until next year, which makes this so-called “concession” a carrot with a big stick attached, a stick that can easily take place as scheduled if Kim fails to keep his promises.

In other words, while North Korea has returned our hostages, stopped firing off missiles, and shut down a nuclear site, Trump has conceded nothing.

Never Trump is also harrumphing over the president’s “legitimizing” Kim on the world stage, as though we rubes are too dumb to figure out that nothing legitimizes you on the world stage faster than owning an ICBM.

Finally, there is the insane complaining about North Korea’s human rights abuses.

How many Americans have to die? How many trillions of dollars must be wasted? How many unassimilable migrants get to invade the West? How many Iraqs, Libyas, and Afghanistans do these Never Trump lunatics require before whatever residual intelligence and decency they have left wake them up to the fact that regional chaos and endless wars are not worth the price of “liberating” enslaved countries?

All that matters…




…is Kim’s not getting his hands on a nuke. If that means offering a guarantee to a monster who allows him to do whatever he wants within the confines of his own country, only a madman would turn down that offer.

America chasing the unicorn of human rights through foreign countries must end.

That does not mean we cannot work with Kim after he denuclearizes, use economic incentives, and the like. But if a denuclearization deal means agreeing to never again use the words “human” and “rights” and “North” and “Korea” in the same sentence, we take the deal.

You see, some of us, including myself, are mature enough to have learned the terrible lessons of the last 16 years. Never Trump, however, still loves to Neocon in other people’s countries, still loves to peacock their moral superiority, even after their wars of liberationhave killed more civilians than any dictator ever could.

Never Trumpites do not care about human rights. If they did, ensuring Kim never gets an ICBM and avoiding war with North Korea, would be their highest priority–because it is the only priority.

The only things Never Trump cares about are media love and hurling straw men to justify their own unearned self-regard.
