But wait, I thought that the nuclear threat was over.

Or did somebody lie again?

The Trump administration has presented North Korea with a formal timeline for starting the process of denuclearization — and Pyongyang has rejected it several times. It shows that even after months of talks, Washington and Pyongyang have made little progress toward ending the North Korean nuclear threat.

The details of the US-proposed timeline, which have not previously been reported, are as follows: North Korea hands over 60 to 70 percent of its nuclear warheads within six to eight months; the US or a third party — likely another country — takes possession of them and removes them from North Korea. It’s unclear what concessions, if any, the US would offer in exchange beyond sanctions relief or removing North Korea from the state sponsors of terrorism list.

According to two people familiar with the discussions, this is the plan that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has presented to North Korean negotiators multiple times over the past two months. But each time, the North Korean negotiators, led by Kim Yong Chol — a top aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — have turned down Pompeo’s proposal.

Further complicating matters, North Korea hasn’t yet disclosed to the United States exactly how many nuclear bombs it even has. So even if North Korean negotiators did agree to the US timeline and handed over what it says is 60 to 70 percent of its arsenal, it would be difficult to verify that.

Indeed, one source told me that Pompeo’s main goal in this stage of the negotiations is merely to get North Korea to officially disclose how many nuclear weapons it possesses, and has pressed the North Koreans to fully account for its warhead total.

So are we to take it that this was total bullshit?

Actually, to be honest, I always knew it was bullshit.

Boy, it is almost like everything Donald Trump attempts to do, turns to a huge pile of manure.

    Donald Trump must really enjoy the sensation of things blowing up in his face.

    Maybe we shouldn’t be so hard on Donnie Dotard. After all, he is mentally, emotionally, morally, and physically challenged. Unfortunately, most of his supporters are also.

    At ‘America First Energy Conference’, solar power is dumb, climate change is fake

    Pumping carbon dioxide into the air makes the planet greener; the United Nations puts out fake science about climate change to control the global energy market; and wind and solar energy are simply “dumb”.

    These are among the messages that flowed from the America First Energy Conference in New Orleans this week, hosted by some of the country’s most vocal climate change doubters – and attended by a handful of Trump administration officials.

    …“The leftist claims about sea level rise are overblown, overstated or frankly just wrong,” he said in an interview. Regarding the United Nations’ findings on climate change, he said it was “fake science” motivated by a desire for “power and control.”

    Kim met with Russians around the time both leaders were supposed to meet, and he delivered a big envelope to Trump. Remember the photo of Trump with the out sized envelope that made his hands look so small? I think Russia gave Kim some goods to hoard over Trump. Notice that Trump says nothing about Kim and the North Koreans’ continuing efforts to build more warheads? Who else does Trump not criticize. That’s right, Putin.
