North Korea Just Made Major Move on Nuclear Test Site, and For Once, It’s Good News

Can’t believe they actually did it.

The country of North Korea has made a huge move on a nuclear site, and for once, it’s actually a good thing.

Just weeks away from a planned meeting with President Trump, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un kept his promise to destroy a nuclear test site, which was officially brought to a close in a series of explosions witnessed by foreign journalists.

It’s finally safe to say it, folks. Trump has accomplished what we all once thought was impossible.

North Korea held a closing ceremony afterward with officials from its nuclear arms program in attendance. The group of journalists that witnessed the demolition, which touched off landslides near the tunnel entrances and sent up clouds of smoke and dust, included an Associated Press Television crew.

North Korea’s state media called the closure of the site part of a process to build “a nuclear-free, peaceful world” and “global nuclear disarmament.”

“The dismantling of the nuclear test ground conducted with high-level transparency has clearly attested once again to the proactive and peace-loving efforts of the DPRK government being made for assuring peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and over the world,” the North’s official news agency reported late Thursday.

Kim announced his plan to close the site, where North Korea has conducted all six of its underground nuclear tests, ahead of a summit with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in in April and the planned summit with Trump, which is scheduled to take place next month in Singapore.

While Trump is making some progress in dealing with Kim Jong Un, it doesn’t seem the uneasy respect the North Korean dictator has for the president extends to Vice President Mike Pence.

The NK government tossed a few insults toward Pence recently, labeling him a “political dummy,” stating they are just as ready and willing to meet in a “nuclear confrontation” as they are to come to the negotiating table.

In other words, don’t misunderstand this bit of progress to mean that North Korea isn’t still a serious threat to the safety and security of both the United States and many other nations around the world.

This whole thing is still pretty volatile and can really go in any direction, though it does seem Kim Jong Un is serious about deescalating the current situation and striking some sort of deal.

To find out just what sort of deal, we’ll have to wait until the meeting scheduled for next month.

Bernie Sanders Proposes Universal Child Care That Costs $1.5 Trillion To Be Financed By ‘Tax On Extreme Wealth’

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination take on President Trump this year for the White House, has just unveiled a new plan to guarantee child care through age three, as well as universal free prekindergarten education, and the cost for this program is absolutely mind blowing. The plan would cost — get ready for this — a whopping $1.5 trillion, yes “trillion,” and would be funded by a tax on the “extreme wealth” of the country, whatever that means. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The Democratic presidential candidate said that the proposal would “substantially reduce the massive level of wealth inequality in America, create new and good jobs, enable parents to more easily balance the demands of work and home, and give our children the best chance at leading healthy, happy lives.” The Vermont senator would pay for the proposal through his wealth tax on those with over $32 million in net worth. His campaign has said that this tax would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over 10 years. Sanders’s campaign says the proposal will improve job flexibility for parents, improve childhood development, and increase wages and training for child care workers. Other top Democratic candidates, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former mayors Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg, have also put forward their own child care plans, but Sanders’s is the broadest and most expensive. If you were on the fence about whether or not Bernie Sanders was a legitimate socialist, this massive big government program and subsequent tax designed to redistribute wealth should remove all doubt. A program of this magnitude would decimate our economy, and this isn’t even including all the other insane things that Sanders wants to implement. His policies would utterly destroy our country, which is why we…

President Trump announced that India has reached a $3 billion defense deal with the United States, which includes the country purchasing several military-grade helicopters.

During his talk, Trump confirmed that the U.S. had approved the purchase of several military helicopters from America as part of the larger defense deal between the two countries. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The United States looks forward to providing India with the best and most-feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made — airplanes, missiles, rockets, ships. We make the best, and we are dealing now with India,” the president said. He continued, “I am pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over $3 billion in the absolute finest, state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces.” Trump, who held a rally with Modi in Texas in September, described the friendship between the two nations as being strong. He called Modi a “great friend” and vowed that the U.S. and India would remain allies. https://twitter.com/narendramodi/status/1231918893964251136 Both countries were due to talk about trade during the state visit, however the president stated that no deal has been finalized at this time. He spoke with reporters saying that he felt “no rush” to complete negotiations, but added that “We are doing well with India, we are making deals.” Trump’s speech in India was accepted with warm applause from the packed out stadium. He went on to thank the crowd gathered to hear him speak for the “spectacular welcome,” saying he would never forget the “remarkable hospitality” of the Indian…
