So Far, North Korea Is Following Through on Promises to Trump

It is a powerful symbolic gesture that war will soon be at an end, which, most seem to be forgetting this week.

Tuesday’s Kim-Trump summit has by far been the most discussed story of the week, mostly because it’s hilarious to hear the liberal media’s massive flip-flop from defending Kim Jong Un a few months ago when Trump was talking smack on “rocket man” to lamenting the multitude human rights abuses in North Korea they apparently just learned about five minutes ago.

Trump could cure cancer and these people would be discussing how tragic it was that oncologists would soon be losing their jobs, no joke.

While there are many perfectly legitimate reasons to cast doubt on whether or not a tyrannical dictator who keeps millions of starving people as his virtual slaves will actually follow through on his word, I think it is safe to say…so far so good.

The Blaze reports that the President announced Friday the remains of American and North Korean soldiers lost in the war have begun their return home, something that both Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In stressed were the top priority for a peace treaty between the two nations.

North Korea has begun returning remains the missing remains of soldiers from the Korean War, President Donald Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Friday morning during an impromptu interview on the North Lawn of the White House.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un agreed during the summit in Singapore on Tuesday, Trump said, to immediately begin returning troops who went missing in action during the Korean War from 1950 to 1953.

Trump said he told Kim he would like to get the American remains being held in North Korea.

“[Kim] said, ‘Yes, we will do that,’” Trump explained. “They are already starting to produce the remains of these great young soldiers who were left in North Korea. We’re getting the remains.”

This may not seem as vital from a security standpoint as denuclearization, which is clearly the goal of Trump cozying up so very much to Kim. But it is a powerful symbolic gesture that war will soon be at an end, which, most seem to be forgetting this week, has already been agreed upon:

In April, Kim and Moon agreed to finally end the 65-year war and denuclearize the Korean peninsula when they signed the “Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula.”

The two nations plan to convert the 1953 armistice to a peace treaty by the end of the year.

For such a clearly volatile dictator to be facilitating the return of US and South Korean dictators, it bodes well for the rest of the agreement. The rest, of course, remains to be seen, but I’d feel pretty confident in saying we have good reason to be hopeful.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
