Donald Trump abruptly cancels plans for a nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Well, so much for that Nobel Peace Prize.

Courtesy of CNN:

President Donald Trump will not meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month for what would have been a historic diplomatic summit, he announced in a letter to Kim released by the White House Thursday morning.

“I was very much looking forward to being there with you. Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote. “Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.”

Trump and Kim were scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12, for what would have been the first face-to-face meeting between a US and North Korean leader.

Here is Trump’s “Dear Jong” letter:


I think this was the gist:

“Dear Jong, I thought we really had something. How could you play with my emotions like that? Dammit, I wanted that Nobel Prize thingy like the black guy got.”

So now Trump has unilaterally pulled out of a working Iran nuclear deal and faceplanted on a deal with North Korea. 

I never read it but was the “Art of the Deal” just a book filled with Trump business fuck ups?

    Well, the only thing for Trump to do now is denigrate the Nobel Prize as worthless for the rest of his life. If you or your organization do not recognize how deserving Trump is, there’s something wrong with you.

    “Nearly half of the airmen were convicted of using or distributing LSD – which the Pentagon has stopped screening for in drug tests, the AP says. Citing records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, the AP reports that the drug ring operated at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, just outside of Cheyenne, Wyo.” “Warren is the headquarters of the 20th Air Force, which oversees three missile wings and is responsible for more than 400 intercontinental ballistic missiles, that are each capable of delivering devastating nuclear blows. While the personnel there are held to a high standard because of their work securing the ICBMs, the AP notes that the assignments are sometimes seen as a “backwater.”

    Six of the airmen were convicted of drug offenses in courts martial. They’re among 14 service members who faced disciplinary measures over the investigation — which came on the heels of other scandals involving the U.S. missile corps.

    Those recent incidents include the reported use of narcotics by officers with launch authority, and rampant cheating on proficiency exams – which has been seen as both manipulating the promotion process and masking security lapses.

    Revelations about drug use at Warren also come less than five years after the Air Force’s No. 2 missile commander, Maj. Gen. Michael Carey — who led the 20th Air Force — was relieved of command over “drunken and inappropriate behavior while leading a security delegation to Moscow,” according to Reuters.”

    This video connects every single dot between Trump and Russia — and the picture it paints is damning

    …The video starts by noting all of the Trump campaign officials who have entered guilty pleas and who are now cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — and then it takes a deep dive into Trump’s past business dealings with Russian nationals.

    Among other things, it notes Trump’s decision to partner with convicted Russian mobster Felix Sater to build Trump Tower Soho, a project that has been accused in a lawsuit of being a thinly veiled vehicle for money laundering; Donald Trump Jr.’s 2008 statement that Russian money had been “pouring in” for his family’s properties; Eric Trump allegedly telling a reporter in 2013 that Russian sources were providing the family with money that American banks wouldn’t; and Trump’s decision to hold his 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, where he tried to arrange a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    The video then notes Trump’s decision to hire Paul Manafort — who is facing multiple money laundering charges related to his work on behalf of a Kremlin-connected Ukrainian oligarch — as his campaign manager.

    From there, it breaks down all the known contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russian agents, ranging from foreign policy advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos to Trump’s own son meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower to discuss her government’s campaign to help Trump become president.

    The whole video paints a damning portrait — check it out below.

    Joe Biden is speaking NOW @ the Democratic Convention…Live on FB “IT’s not rocket science” “China>Looking for the Secrets…Constantly remaking itself…

    FYI>
    “North Korea calls Pence ‘stupid,’ threatens ‘nuclear showdown’ amid summit jitters”
    “Choe Son Hui, a vice minister in the North Korean Foreign Ministry, called Pence a “political dummy” for comparing North Korea to Libya, which abandoned its early-stage nuclear program at the U.S.’s behest, only to have its leader ousted and killed years later — with help from NATO-backed troops.

    “There was some talk about the Libya model,” Pence said in an interview with Fox News on Monday. “As the President made clear, this will only end like the Libya model ended if Kim Jong Un doesn’t make a deal.”

    Choe called Pence’s remarks “unbridled and impudent.”””We could surmise more than enough what a political dummy he is as he is trying to compare the DPRK, a nuclear weapon state, to Libya that had simply installed a few items of equipment and fiddled around with them,” North Korean state media KCNA quoted Choe as saying Thursday. “In view of the remarks of the U.S.’s high-ranking politicians who have not yet woken up to this stark reality and compare the DPRK to Libya that met a tragic fate, I come to think that they know too little about us.” “We will neither beg the U.S. for dialogue nor take the trouble to persuade them if they do not want to sit together with us,” Choe told KCNA. “Whether the U.S. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States.” “Before making such reckless threatening remarks without knowing exactly who he is facing, Pence should have seriously considered the terrible consequences of his words,” Choe said, according to KCNA. “To borrow their words, we can also make the U.S. taste an appalling tragedy it has neither experienced nor even imagined up to now.””

      “Pottinger revealed that the White House sent an advance team to Singapore–including at least one deputy chief of staff—to meet with the North Koreans and discuss logistics for the possible summit. “There they waited for three days,” Pottinger told conference callers. “The North Koreans never showed up. They never told us anything. They just stood us up.”

      The silence persisted through the subsequent week until a North Korean official accused Vice President Mike Pence of being a “politically dummy.””

    Facebook now requires your Social Security number to buy political ads

    Facebook users in the United States who want to run certain ads on the platform will need to hand over the last four digits of their social security number and a picture of a government-issued ID.
    The social network now requires anyone who wants to run ads related to political campaigns, civil rights, immigration, guns, economy, and other issues, to prove they’re in the United States. Part of the proof required is the last four digits of your Social Security number.

    The move is part of a series of initiatives by Facebook to increase transparency on the platform after a Russian government-linked troll group spent thousands of rubles on Facebook ads targeting Americsans ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

    In addition to a Social Security number, users wishing to buy ads will need to provide a picture of a government-issued ID and a US mailing address. Once Facebook verifies the information submitted, the company will mail a code to the provided address to authorize the user’s Facebook account to buy ads.

    Even in Canceling Nuke Summit, Trump Gave North Korea What It Wanted
    Trump’s personal letter to Kim elevated the despot to the top tier of international diplomacy—something likely to last even as the chance of peace falls away.

    John Bolton’s Wrecking Ball Takes Down North Korea Summit
    The collapse of the North Korean summit suggests that John Bolton’s influence is on the rise inside the White House.

    National Security Adviser John Bolton might just have gotten his wish: President Donald Trump has called off the June 12 summit meeting in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. For weeks, Bolton has been working to set impossibly high expectations for the summit.

    Bolton appeared to be willing to settle for nothing other than Kim showing up to Singapore to turn over the keys to his nuclear program—which North Korea has recently taken to calling its “treasured sword”—to the United States. Bolton’s preferred model all this time has been the 2003 disarmament of Libya, which at the time had a nuclear-weapons program that was effectively in a primordial state and was dismantled by the United States.

    When North Korea hears of this “Libya model,” it recoils. For Pyongyang, the lesson of Muammar Gaddafi’s decision to enter into a process of disarmament was what came eight years later—when Libyan rebels found and mutilated him, aided and abetted by Western airpower. It is precisely to avoid this fate that North Korea was determined to cling to its nuclear weapons.

    If one were to pin down the exact moment all momentum toward the high-stakes summit effectively evaporated, it might have been last week, when Trump, speaking off-the-cuff, conflated Bolton’s 2003 “Libya model” with the 2011 air campaign led by the Obama administration—the very action that precipitated Gaddafi’s downfall.

    Why did anyone ever take Trump’s North Korea diplomacy seriously? Trump lies and says nonsense all the time. We need to remember that.

    …But it raises the question: Why did so much of the media and the political system insist on taking President Trump’s Korean nuclear diplomacy so seriously in the first place?

    The factors that led to the collapse of the summit were there from the beginning. The only thing that ever seemed remotely promising about it was Trump’s say-so, but Trump’s say-so is meaningless. Not only is he a person who makes factual misstatements and lies, but he’s a person who has gotten ahead in life through extensive use of bullshit, leaving in his wake a trail of broken promises.

    From his unpaid bills to contractors to his scam university to his brief period ripping off the shareholders of his eponymous company, this is what Trump does: He exploits normal human nature to sucker people into trusting him, and then he exploits his own ever-growing fame and power to get away with breaking the rules.

    As president, this pattern has only continued.

    He never delivered his much-promised plan to release a “terrific” Obamacare alternative that would cover everyone. Instead, he backtracked on his promise to protect Medicaid from cuts. He never took on the National Rifle Association. He never delivered a solution for DREAMers, and, of course, Mexico isn’t going to pay for the wall.

    He’s dropped the promise to negotiate lower prescription drug prices for Medicare. He dropped the promise to break up big banks. He dropped the promise of a $1 trillion infrastructure bill. He dropped the promise to develop a tax program that would leave the rich paying more. And, of course, his version of “draining the swamp“ has brought a level of corruption to official Washington that would have embarrassed the congressional barons of the Gilded Age.

    This is not controversial. Everyone in the Washington and media elite knew this but set aside all the evidence to believe that Trump is someone else and might actually take negotiations seriously and usher in a major diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea. The ultimate collapse of the summit is a valuable opportunity to try to make sure we do a better job next time, and not only take note of Trump’s lies and nonsense when his statements are proven to be dishonest nonsense but to be preemptively skeptical of new claims he makes.

    Trump’s Korea rhetoric was alarming and dishonest

    A good clue that we were being set up is that not only is the Trump administration’s North Korea policy being headed up by Donald Trump, but it has been conducted so far like you would expect a bullshitter to conduct policy.

    “Wang, whose specialty is geographic measurements, and a team from Germany, China, and the United States used data from Germany’s TerraSAR-X satellite to gauge the Sept. 3 test. The satellite is equipped with a radar system sensitive enough to capture shifts as small as a few centimeters, and it recorded the change in the mountain’s contours after the explosion, which showed up on seismometers as a magnitude-6.3 earthquake.”

      “suggests the blast was likely a bit over 200 kilotons, or about 15 times the force of the bomb the United States dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, ” “The size of the blast supports North Korea’s claim that the device was its first hydrogen bomb, said Jeffrey Lewis, the head of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at California’s Middlebury Institute of International Studies and publisher of the Arms Control Wonk blog. Seismic events recorded soon after the Sept. 3 test led to reports of a cave-in in one of the tunnels at the test site, but Lewis said studies afterward point to the cavity gouged out by the blast collapsing on itself.”

In 2003, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) became the first country to withdraw from the 1968 Non-Proliferation treaty and started to conduct underground nuclear weapon tests with increasing intensity since 2006. On 3 September 2017, two seismic events separated by ~8.5 min were detected in the North Korea’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site. Soon thereafter, North Korea’s state media reported the successful firing of a two-stage thermonuclear bomb test. The US Geological Survey and China Earthquake Networks Center determined a body wave magnitude (mb) of 6.3 for the first event (NKNT 6), much larger than the five nuclear tests since 2006”
