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.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
