Trump Makes Huge Announcement About US-North Korea Summit

Not good.

Published

President Donald Trump, who was due to have a summit meeting with Kim Jong Un, dictator of North Korea, has decided to cancel the June 12th meeting in a letter on Thursday.

Here’s the full letter:

The president referenced recent incendiary comments from North Korea about Vice President Mike Pence. “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate at this time, to have this long planned meeting.

North Korea blasted Pence for recent comments referencing the possibility of dismantling Kim Jong Un’s regime if it refuses to de-nuclearize and referencing its nuclear stockpile. The regime said “I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice-president,” adding “we could surmise more than enough what a political dummy he is as he is trying to compare the DPRK, a nuclear weapon state, to Libya that had simply installed a few items of equipment and fiddled around with them.”

North Korea also threatened the U.S. saying “to borrow their words, we can also make the U.S. taste an appalling tragedy it has neither experienced nor even imagined up to now.”

Trump noted that he still hopes to meet Kim Jong Un at some point if their regime agrees to the terms set out by the U.S. and said if he changes his mind that they should not hesitate to reach out. The president thanked the North Koreans for releasing three U.S. hostages detained by the regime under false pretenses.

Wow, so this is a crazy development, right?

At the end of the day, one can see there might be a bit of strategy at play here. Kim Jong Un doesn’t like the idea of being told what to do, of having to submit to any sort of authority outside of his own, and it seems likely he felt Trump and the United States were simply gaining too much power over him.

Thus, he and his government made these remarks, thinking it would restore their power, but in fact, Trump responded in such a way as to leave them exactly where they were before, maybe even a bit more neutered.

Hopefully, North Korea will learn to respect other countries and their leadership, apologize for their remarks and open negotiations once again.

Enormous Confederate Carving Subject of Renewed Debate

Will Stone Mountain be vanquished by an army of virtue signalers?

Over the course of the last several years, and with a vast acceleration in 2020, municipalities around the nation have been removing, renaming, and re-dedicating a number of Confederate monuments now deemed offensive in the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Not everyone is a fan of the move, however, with opponents often suggesting that this is a revision of history, and that these men were also American soldiers, in a way. Now, one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world, the carving on the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, is facing renewed calls for removal. Crowds are growing larger at the monthly meetings of the Georgia board considering what to do about the giant carving of Confederacy leaders in Stone Mountain. But officials seem no closer to an answer. The Stone Mountain Memorial Association decided to make a few changes last month, but they weren’t enough to placate people who want the monument removed. A museum exhibit will tell the story of the carving, as well as the site’s ties to the Ku Klux Klan. But having to make those decisions could increase the volume and the pressure on the board, NPR reports. Critics have pointed out that the carving is a modern piece, and not a relic of a bygone era. “Where we go from there?” asked the board’s chairman, the Rev. Abraham Mosley. “I don’t know.” Putting the site in a Georgia context seems like a challenge. None of the three men—Confederate Gens. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and Confederacy President Jefferson Davis—was from the area, and no battles were fought there. As a piece of history, it’s not that historic, having been completed in 1972. The monument sits within Stone Mountain Park, an amusement park of sorts, that has lost a number…

Russia Continues Harassment of American Military Just 35 Miles Off US Coast

That’s a little too close for comfort.

Published

When it comes to dealing with Russia, much of the US policy is straightforward, and likely on account of the fact that the Kremlin has been pulling the same, silly stunts for decades now. In fact, it’s getting a little stale. Russia loves to use her military as a nuisance to the United States, posing danger at times, certainly, but most often just being undeniably annoying. This week was no exception. Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US. At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War. Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer – within 35 miles of the U.S. state. The moves have forced the US military into action. Twice this month – on June 14 and 18 – the U.S. scrambled F-22s from Hawaii in response to Russian bomber flights. Neither time did the bombers enter the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) perimeter, and so they were not intercepted. On June 17 the Navy admitted that the USS Carl Vinson and her strike group were operating near Hawaii, without revealing when they had arrived, or why. It has been only a few days since Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, in a meeting that both men seemed to suggest was a success. This latest Kremlin aggression begs to differ.
