SEOUL - North Korea executed its nuclear envoy to the United States as part of a purge of officials who steered negotiations for a failed summit between leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, a South Korean newspaper said on Friday. Kim Hyok Chol was executed in March at Mirim Airport in Pyongyang, along with four foreign ministry executives after they were all charged with spying for the United States, the Chosun Ilbo reported, citing an unidentified source with knowledge of the situation.

Being a North Korean official is hazardous to one's health. They have done things like this before. Kim doesn't have to listen to these officials anymore, and its better than firing (/s). Is this the end of Trump's North Korean diplomatic effort? Looks like that. Wait and see. It make Trump look bad. The article is from Reuters, and they are for anything that makes Trump look bad. Has anyone verified what the article reports is true?

Kimmie is going back to his former ways. Xi and Putie both met with Kimmie to re-educate him on his alliances. Since then, Kimmie has turned stone cold. Not only will he reverse course with the USA, but, his brutal and tyrannical style will revert to what it once was. These last gentlemen who were executed were fortunate to get bullets through the head instead of the flame thrower or wood chipper that Kimmie operates himself. My advice to President Trump is to turn up the heat and let Kimmie have it with more sanctions. Kimmie launches a missile, we send a singing telegram aka a cruise missile to his front door.

Trump need only build a handsome and sturdy gallows on the WH Lawn.....with...say 12 trap doors. The penalty for TREASON is HANGING. But you can trust the Media to call it 'executing political opponents' when it happens. ....and justice requires that it happen.

This does not make President Trump look bad. Now if the rockets and bombs start flying and dropping in the future Trump can say that “I tried” by absolutely going out of his way to negotiate total denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula with Kim at the executive level face to face, something that no previous US President did. Chances are the next move now rests with North Koreans who are in a position to eliminate the Kim dynasty, thus taking North Korea out of the cold, and then by coming back to the table.

#9, you don’t mean that their not dead dead? Is there anyway for our President to address one of those enormous Nork military parades? Trump could offer to shake the hands of the 600,000 plus soldiers after they stopped marching in goose step past podium. Handshakes might cause Kim to order mass executions of these soldiers. Which in turn could lead to revolt against Kim, his family and North Korea’s evil leadership.

Something didn't go as planned, and some WILL pay the price for such failures, particularly on the global stage. It could be they didn't get what they wanted, or some were too willing to give too much, per Kim. In other news, China clamped down on the Meth trafficking from North Korea just the other day.

President Trump gave the world a window of opportunity to bring North Korea into the 21st century. He offered Kim a glimpse of respectability alongside other world leaders. Trump's initial efforts were successful enough to make China nervous. However, our homegrown enemedia teamed up with the globalist media churning out non-stop false accusations of crimes and unhinged behavior. From the beginning the enemies of freedom undermined Trump's efforts and Kim's trust and confidence to listen and follow this new force on the world stage. It is a tragic failure for the world, and a grand success for the globalist power structure. The blood of these envoys drips from the keyboards of every enemedia hack.

One of the more unfortunate effects of the Trump-Russia investigation — and there have been many — is the weakening of traditional standards of argument and proof in the public debate over allegations that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election. (Just for the record: It didn't.) In particular, angry disputes about the president have done terrible harm to the principle that an investigator, be it a journalist or a prosecutor, should meet at least some standard of proof before leveling an accusation. Two examples. First is the so-called Steele dossier, the collection of wild allegations against Trump compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele on behalf

The collapse of Bibi Netanyahu's plans for a governing coalition is not something he saw coming. This in itself marks a rare failure in what has long been an unparalleled political intelligence. Netanyahu will now be forced to re-fight a battle he thought he had won, this time on more treacherous terrain. Ostensibly, the coalition was lost because former Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman refused to allow his five-member faction to join. He claimed that he was violating his pledge out of principle. The ultra-orthodox coalition members oppose a law making a small number of yeshiva students eligible for military service. Lieberman wants the law.

Democrats running for president have taken a shockingly sensible position on the most deeply divisive issue in American politics for the past half-century. Threatened by a slew of new state laws around the country making it illegal to perform late-term abortions after baby’s hearts have begun beating, Democrats have seized on a new tactic for ensuring that they can preserve the “constitutional right” to abortion up to the moment of birth. (And even after, according to some Democrat politicians, so long as the newborn is kept “comfortable” while the grownups decide how best to dispose of the live baby.)

Who Ran Crossfire Hurricane? 18 replies

"Crossfire Hurricane” — the melodramatic code name for the FBI/CIA spy operation on candidate Trump and his early presidency — was run for the FBI by then-FBI Director James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, Special Agent Peter Strzok, and a few others. Then-CIA director John Brennan ran it for the CIA. Brennan had to have help, but who was it? A lot of evidence points to the CIA’s then-chief of station in London in 2016-2017, and now the Director of Central Intelligence, Gina Haspel. President Trump claimed that the FBI and CIA’s spying on his campaign and early presidency was treason. Attorney General William Barr said that, legally, it wasn’t. Barr is correct.

Russia has withdrawn key defense advisers from Venezuela, an embarrassment for President Nicolás Maduro as Moscow weighs the leader’s political and economic resilience against growing U.S. pressure. Russian state defense contractor Rostec, which has trained Venezuelan troops and advised on securing arms contracts, has cut its staff in Venezuela to just a few dozen, from about 1,000 at the height of cooperation between Moscow and Caracas several years ago, said a person close to the Russian defense ministry. The gradual pullout, which has escalated over the last several months, according to people familiar with the situation, is due to a lack of new contracts and the acceptance that Mr. Maduro’s regime

In that twinkling zone between man and myth, Robert Mueller transcends the mundane. Even in refusing to reach a conclusion on criminal conduct, he is excused. As Mueller himself declared, we are to ask him no questions or expect any answers beyond his report. But his motivations as special counsel can only be found within an approved range that starts at “selfless” and ends at “heroic.” Representative Mike Quigley defended Mueller’s refusal to reach a conclusion as simply “protecting” President Trump in a moment of “extreme fairness.” Yet, as I noted previously, Mueller’s position on the investigation has become increasingly conflicted and, at points, unintelligible.

It never ceases to amaze me how left-wingers love to rewrite rules as they go along. When “innocent until proven guilty” doesn’t help their cause, they flip it on its head and pretend the old reality never existed. Since Republicans are largely timid children when it comes to a fight, Democrats are able to get away with it. But what if they weren’t? Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) loves to moralize about President Trump, particularly about his finances. There’s nothing he would like more than to gain access to Trump’s tax returns, which, if he got them, would undoubtedly have select portions mysteriously find their way to the press.

The event, VTEX Day, is billed as “the largest digital innovation event in Latin America.” During a conversation with a host on stage during the digital innovation event, Obama took the opportunity to speak negatively about U.S. gun laws.

They can buy [guns] over the internet, they can buy machine guns.” His statement to a foreign audience includes six lies about our gun laws and one truth.

ROME — Stephen K. Bannon had plans to train the next generation of nationalists and right-wing culture warriors at a medieval monastery in the mountains outside of Rome. But on Friday, the Italian government put those plans in severe doubt, announcing that it intends to revoke the rights to the property, citing among other things a failure to pay concession fees and do maintenance work. “Proceeding with the revocation is thus a duty,” an official at Italy’s culture ministry, Gianluca Vacca, said in a statement. The apparent decision jeopardizes one of the projects Bannon had hoped could define his legacy in Europe — a “gladiator school” intended to train future far-right leaders
