  1. And as I noted when I posted this yesterday, the Left will go mental over this and thus they have. Breitbart is a great source to find out how mental the Left truly is.

  2. Iampeter

    Yes, until now, no one would’ve thought it possible to have an administration of such sheer incompetence, and a President that is such a cowardly appeaser, for a farce like this to take place.

    But here we are…

    And as I noted when I posted this yesterday, the Left will go mental over this and thus they have. Breitbart is a great source to find out how mental the Left truly is.

    Anyone supporting appeasing a communist dictator is also on the left wing side of politics.

    It’s right wingers that should “go mental’ over the things this hopeless and left wing administration keep doing.

    I hereby pronounce IamMengele — apart from the signature knowall smartarse arrogance, the left’s patented calling card — the dumbest leftard troll in the history of the Cat.

    We know wait for Trump to extract a deal from his new favourite plaything, Phat Phuc Un, who, as a result of Trump’s intervention, is no longer destabilising the Far East and threatening a nuclear exchange with the USA and Japan.

    Evidently to derail a thread so people talk about him and not about Trump.

    Typical Leftist view, any attempt by someone not on their side trying to promoting peace in the world is evil.

    However, it’s OK for someone on the Leftist side to do the opposite (such as the Killary and the Kenyan) supporting and funding the likes of dictators in Iran, who not only dispense death and destruction to their own people, but others around the world as well.

    What was the purpose of Trump crossing the DMZ? To show that it can be done. Then comes the next step and the next etc. As it did not take just one step or one moment to get to the status quo so it will take many steps to get back to normal.

    You don’t need to ask the purpose of why a right wonger is on a right wing blog.
    The real question is, why are you politically illiterate leftists here?

    Come back Monty!

    That would be convenient wouldn’t it. Monty isn’t going to point out that you don’t seem to even know how “free speech” works.
    So you can safely LARP “political discussions” without anyone pointing out that you haven’t a clue.

  14. C.L.

    Journalists to a man and a woman are falling over themselves today to downplay the Trump coup at the DMZ. An “analysis” at the ABC is trypical of the sourpuss genre:

    It’s not hard to see who’s getting the most out of these meetings between Trump and Kim

    In this game of diplomatic chess, the US President and North Korean leader are both making bold moves, but it’s the youthful dictator who is proving to be the more astute player, writes Bill Birtles.

    Note, Obama still has his peace prize based on empty words and nothing more.

    U.S. military forces have been at war for all eight years of Obama’s tenure, the first two-term president with that distinction. He launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

    Trump has so far avoided any new wars and is doing a reasonable job of trying to normalize (if thats even possible) NK into being just another country.

    The payoff if it works would be huge, apparently there is about 25,000+ troops and contractors in SK, thats a lot of dough being spent on another nations security.

    No telling if it will come to anything, and the Chinese get a veto (via coup or overthrow) if they decide to get involved.

    RE: every picture tells a story.

    The accompanying text is a lesson in the meaning of madness.

    We can only hope that President Trump is successful attempting something different.

    “President Barack Obama warned North Korea Sunday that if it moves forward with a planned test-firing of a long-range missile, it will further deepen its isolation, damage relations with its neighbors and face additional sanctions that have already strangled the country.
    “North Korea will achieve nothing by threats or provocations,” Obama said during a news conference in Seoul, South Korea, on the eve of an international nuclear security summit.

    “North Korea knows its obligation.”
    Obama’s strong words follow last week’s announcement by North Korea that it is planning to carry out a rocket-powered satellite launch in April.”

    https://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/25/world/asia/korea-obama-visit/index.html

    It is one small step over the line. Good luck, Mr President.

    There’s no doubt this is a great triumph for the President. He has cleverly brought the leader of the country he has been at war with for 60 years to, and across, his doorstep without having actually made a single concession. He has strengthened his standing within his own country, and with other countries who have been suspicious of him. He is working towards a peace treaty, and membership of the nuclear power club.

    Who would have thought it would be President Kim Jong Un who would outsmart the author of the Art of the Deal?

    So after Trump wins the next election, theHatemedia and the Dems will want to impeach Trump for election interference by Nth Korea.

  23. cuckoo

    ABC this morning, rather than report the event, is reporting the US media reaction as if that’s the story. But even Greg Jennett this morning couldn’t help pointing out that those media were turning to ‘Democrat after Democrat’ for commentary.

  24. cuckoo

    Let me see if I’ve got this right. When Trump is threatening and mocking Little Rocket Man, he’s a lunatic who is dragging us into war. When he’s making nice to Kim he’s “cozying up to dictators”. Got it.

  25. NuThink

    One commentator yesterday said that Trump was taking credit for something that has not yet happened. At least he did not get a No Bell Prize for just getting elected like Obama. Even if Trump did a deal and brought peace and prosperity to NK, there is no way that the No Bell Committee would ever acknowledge it.

    There are also people saying he (DJT) should not do anything until the NKs answer what happened to the missing Australian. But the very same people were reluctant to ask China what happened to the Head of Interpol who went missing in China. It appears he has been found and charged with taking bribes, a good communist ploy to get your poltiical enemies.

    https://www.dw.com/en/china-ex-interpol-chief-meng-hongwei-pleads-guilty-to-bribery/a-49273898

    Over one million officials in China have been convicted as part of an anti-graft campaign in the six years since President Xi Jinping came into office.

    Beijing says the campaign is meant to stamp out criminal activity, but analysts claim it is also being used to remove political rivals.

  26. mh

    I don’t think any of NK’s neighbours have an issue with Trump’s approach to Kim and North Korea.

    In fact they all seem to welcome it.

    That’s the think this leftards don’t get. We might be watching the first step towards the Korean version of the fall of Berlin’s wall. I very much hope there will be a unified Korea in my lifetime. And if it happens, we’ll track back to this point in time when someone with balls actually crossed over to show it’s no impossible thing to happen.

    Before DJT we were a tic close to a nuclear war. DJT cooled off things by these small steps… one at a time. De-escalate is the only effective measure with nuclear threats. Just proven again.

    Now, King Jong-un cannot escalate things up again. He’s just bound by a US president showing kindness and openness. If he does escalate things up again, no one is going to blame DJT for leveling NK to the ground and be done with it. Everyone is just going to understand that he tried.

    Bottom line is that, if you show unequivocal good will and is still mistreated you are in your right to retaliate. And you should.

  29. The Left viscerally hates Trumps because he keeps doing things the Left insist is impossible. Remember all the doom and gloom that the experts and the Kenyan said would come with a Trump Presidency? Trump waved that ‘magic wand’ and all was good. 🙂

    All those years of career politician presidents keeping the war against the “godammned cammies “ oozing with hate , and Trump actually sets foot in North Korea , and even better gets Kim to stand on SouthKorean soil, this is what elected leaders do, they lead , they dont do as the owners of the parties tell tham .
    Not only does he knock the system down he sinks the boot in it too . I am delighted at the suffering and anguish the left must be experiencing ,hoorah ! Now a treaty with Putin to curb Chinas ambitions would be the icing on the cake ,and the world would be a better place.
    I thank the American Deplorables for having the sense to elect the best President ever .m

    Tucker Carlson says Trump ‘dominated’ Kim as ‘wheezing’ North Korean dictator struggled

    …Carlson, who said the DMZ felt like “the end of the earth,” continued to describe Kim’s apparent poor health and labored breathing.

    “It really felt like we were at the end of the earth, the middle of nowhere, with kind of not many people around, standing in the middle of the street. It was very odd. And, I mean, right next to Kim. I mean could have touched him, that close,” he said.

    “And, he was breathing like an emphysema patient. I’m not saying that to be insulting but he was breathing in a labored way like he was out of breath. And even allowing for the historic nature of it, which I’m sure played a role in his breathlessness, but my take as a non-physician was — this is a very unhealthy guy. Very unhealthy. I mean, maybe I’m wrong… but that was the first thing I thought. This guy is in very bad health.”…

Perhaps the news of Trumps triumph is coming by sailing ship, like it used to ,should find out in a month or two. Front page in le Monde ,even gets a derogatory mention in nyt and wapo ,now if obummer had got out from behind the bullet proof glass it would ave been international news for months .

  40. Enoch Root

    There’s another thing to consider there as well. Let’s say Kim Jong-un wants to break with NK past and is genuinelly interested in joining the modern world, to the joy of NK people (this is an young guy who has seen the world outside NK after all). Obviously the old crooks in the party would not like that. These DJT visits and (faked or not) deference is what might actually be keeping him alive.

    That it makes no sense for you fools to be calling anyone else “leftist trolls.”

    That if this was anywhere else, I’d assume I was being trolled, but because I’m familiar with the level at the Cat, I know you’re actually being serious…

    Yep. You certainly don’t need meds. A bunch of clueless leftist on a right wing blog, calling right wingers, leftists, makes perfect sense and is not crazy at all.

    That mask has fallen now, as he sings from the same hymn book as the radical leftist 2020 Dem candidates, while just about every anti-war pundit has said the event was at least a step in the right direction. Limpy ought not show his face around here again. Hark at this ‘libertarian’ itching for nuclear war on the Korean peninsula. At the very least, he’d sooner see nuclear war on the Korean peninsula rather than have Trump winning a diplomatic victory. What a disgrace Limpy is.

    It’s probably a little generous of me to concede that your request for an, “analysis demonstrating your understanding of the history of the conflict, etc…” qualifies as a question, don’t you think?
    It’s just that everything you guys post is so wrong, on so many levels, it’s often hard to know how to even begin responding.
    Nor does it take much genius to agree that cowardly appeasement doesn’t work.

    You got me. I know nothing.

    I mean, you’re the one demanding an “analysis that demonstrates your understanding of the history of the conflict, the players, past failures and why the current approach will fail,” so you can have your mind changed that cowardly appeasement doesn’t work.

    But it’s me that knows nothing.
