America’s DOD shows up for a date, but North Korea completely stands them up.

I guess that Trump handshake did not mean shit.

North Korean officials did not turn up to a Thursday meeting with the U.S. military about repatriating the remains of the war dead, according to a U.S. official with knowledge of the situation.

The two sides had been expected to meet at the Korean Peninsula’s demilitarized zone and discuss the return of U.S. troop remains from the 1950-1953 war — an arrangement the State Department had announced after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Pyongyang last Friday and Saturday.

On Thursday, however, Department of Defense and United Nations Command officials were left waiting in the DMZ’s Joint Security Area. The expected North Korean officials never arrived, according to the official who requested anonymity as he was not permitted to talk publicly about the event.

“We were ready,” the official said. “It just didn’t happen. They didn’t show.”

To save a little face Mike Pompeo suggested that they did not necessarily set a firm date, but then one would have to wonder why officials for both the Department of Defense and the UN Command would drop everything and show up? 

The date is now supposedly set for July 15. Well, maybe. 

There are also numerous news accounts stating that North Korea continues to work on their nuclear weapons program despite Trump’s assertion that he handled all of that. 

But hey, Kim Jong Un did pass him a note during class.


“Your Excellency Mr. President?”

Oh, Kim Jong really knows how to stroke this idiot’s ego, while doing absolutely nothing to deliver the goods.

In other words, Trump is about to buy Kim dinner and take him to the movies, and still walk home with a crippling case of blue balls.

    ““And fortunately, we tend to record stories now, so we have it for your enjoyment if you’d like it, but we record when we deal with reporters,” he continued. “It’s called fake news. We solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument.”

    The interview Trump and the BBC editor were referencing took place earlier in the week, was recorded, and had the president on record saying newly-resigned UK Independence Party leader Boris Johnson — May’s erstwhile political rival — would make “a great prime minister.” Trump also said the prime minister “wrecked” Brexit after he told her how to do it, and again attacked London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Europe generally for allowing migrants and “terrorists” into their borders.”

    “First question from @bbclaurak about how he treated May in interview, blasting her Brexit policy: “I didn’t criticize the prime minister.” Then, @realDonaldTrump takes next step of calling The Sun “fake news.” The Murdoch-owned Sun that is…”
    “Trump is calling quotes he said — that there is audio of — are fake news.” “He did it. He really did it. Donald Trump called his ON THE RECORD (which was recorded) interview with The Sun “fake news”.”

    ““It allows him to make his point that Russia is not isolated, that Russia is a great power, and to some extent can even claim an equal status with the United States, at least in the security field,” said Kortunov.”

    “Sergei Mironov, a senior lawmaker from the pro-Kremlin Just Russia party, said in another political talk show that Putin would definitely have the upper hand in Helsinki.

    “… Vladimir Putin will give a real master class to the inexperienced politician Donald Trump,”” “Nikonov said Trump was now strong enough to pursue his own agenda.

    “It’s one of the signs that the wind is blowing in our sails, thanks in large part to Trump,” he said. “I don’t remember any pro-Russian (U.S.) presidents, but I want to remind you that he (Trump) is one of the most pro-Russian politicians at the moment in the United States.””

    Here’s why Trump tries so hard to be on Putin’s good side — and it has nothing to do with politics

    …What could be motivating Trump’s largesse toward Russia? It’s hard to argue that it’s what’s best for America. A pattern of reported facts suggest it could be personal financial gain.

    …“America first” ideology has actually put Russia first. Leaving the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Iran nuclear deal and Paris Climate Agreement lost America international forums where it communicated, led and influenced. Cutting the State Department’s budget and foreign aid weakened America’s global clout and allowed Putin to expand Russia’s sphere of influence.

    Trump’s threat to cut aid to Central America damaged trust in the U.S. Now Putin is providing aid there, reopening military bases and building a satellite-tracking station that could spy on the U.S. Trump’s rejection of Obama’s soft Cuba policy may result in a repeat of Cuba’s pivot to Russia after Dwight Eisenhower rejected Cuban efforts for diplomatic and trade ties. Trump’s trade tariffs and insults of EU and Canadian leaders threatens relationships with our closest allies. His escalating criticism of NATO make some worry the United States might actually leave the alliance – the ultimate gift to Putin.

    Congressional Republicans are muting their nervousness about Trump giving away the store, settling for bromides about how there’s nothing wrong with just talking to Russia. It’s hard to imagine how talking under these conditions will serve America’s interest, but on the other hand, we may finally see Trump Tower built in Moscow. In keeping his stakes in 500 foreign businesses — no other president had any – Trump has unprecedented cause to tailor foreign policy for personal gain. He promised to “drain the swamp,” but there are more reptiles in it than ever, and many speak Russian.

    Federal government is spending $1 billion to keep immigrant kids detained, new report finds

      The Trump administration’s kidnapping — that’s the proper word — of the children of would-be migrants should be seen as an ongoing criminal conspiracy. Somebody ought to go to jail.

      …Remember what this is really about. The main flow of undocumented migrants consists of Hondurans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans seeking to escape rampant, deadly gang violence that their home governments cannot or will not check. The Trump administration issued new instructions on Wednesday to officers who interview asylum seekers at the border, telling them that fear of gang violence, no matter how well-founded, is no longer grounds for asylum. The same new guidance applies to immigration judges, who take their orders from Sessions.

      Kidnapping children. Failing even to account for them. Sending families home to be killed. Give us your huddled masses, this administration seems to say, and let us kick them in their little faces.

    Heat waves bother you? Under Trump climate policies, add another 12°F
    America faces monster 131°F heat waves in the coming decades.

    …Heat wave records have been falling at an astonishing rate in recent days around the country and around the globe. The brutal heat has spurred wildfires, water shortages, asthma attacks, power emergencies, and the like.

    In many cases, the records were not simply beaten, they were obliterated. As NOAA reported in Southern California, where temperature records go back 140 years, records for July 6 were disintegrated by 14°F in downtown Los Angeles and Camarillo, and by 16°F in San Luis Obispo.

    https://www.politicususa.com/2018/07/13/trump-trade-war-backfires-as-china-trade-surplus-with-us-hits-record-high.html

    “China’s trade surplus with the United States, which is at the center of the tariff tussle, widened to a record monthly high of $28.97 billion, up from $24.58 billion in May, according to Reuters calculations based on official data going back to 2008.

    The record surplus “won’t help already sour relations and escalating tensions”” “The dispute has jolted global financial markets, raising worries a full-scale trade war could derail the world economy. “

    12 Russian Intelligence Officers Indicted In Robert Mueller Investigation
    The charges are connected to the hacking of the DNC during the 2016 campaign.

    A grand jury convened by special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials in connection with the hack of a DNC server during the 2016 election.

    All 12 of the defendants were connected to GRU, a Russian Federation intelligence agency within the Russian military.

    Defendants registered the domain “DCLeaks.com” and falsely claimed to be “American hacktivists.” They used Facebook and Twitter to promote the website.

    Now trump is backtracking ( what a surprise) and said it will take awhile to get NK to give up their nuclear weapons. Gosh, didn’t he tell us he personally saved the world from NK nukes and we could sleep at night?
