WATCH: Seeing Trump Greet American Prisoners From North Korea is Pure Awesomeness

This is simply fantastic!

Published

Earlier this week the news broke that President Donald Trump had managed to secure the release of three American prisoners in North Korea and that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on his way back with them at the time he published the announcement.

This historic feat was part of the demands Trump made for meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, along with agreeing to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

Just finding out these three folks would be coming back home where they belonged was fantastic news, but actually getting to see video footage of the president greeting them pushes this whole thing into pure awesomeness.

The prisoners arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland sometime early Wednesday morning. Vice President Pence was the first to arrive, with the president and first lady showing up several minutes later followed by National Security Adviser John Bolton and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Secretary of State Pompeo’s plane arrived first, followed by the plane carrying the freed citizens several minutes later. The president and first lady boarded the plane and spoke with them before walking out of the plane together to greet the press.

“This is a special night for these three really great people,” Trump told reporters. “Frankly we didn’t think this was going to happen … it’s a very important thing to all of us to be able to get these three great people out.”

Trump thanked North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for releasing the hostages, adding, “I really think he wants to do something and bring his country into the real world.”

“I think this will be a very big success,” Trump continued. “It’s never been taken this far, there’s never been a relationship like this. Some great things can happen, and that’s what we hope.”

The president is constantly criticized by the media for just about everything he says or does, but these same folk just simply refuse to give him credit when he accomplishes something amazing, like all the stuff he’s done with North Korea.

These three men are now free, back home, in the loving arms of their families, all because of the effort that this president and his administration put into actually getting things done instead of a bunch of nonsense political posturing.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Trump’s meeting with North Korean leadership to discuss denuclearization is a historic accomplishment that should earn the man a Nobel Peace Prize.

Let’s hope the media can actually swallow their pride and give Trump props for getting these folks home.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
