North Korea Foreign Ministry says talks with Pompeo ‘regrettable,’ accuses US of unilateral demands for denuclearization

  • Secretary of State Mike Pompeo journey to Pyongyang appears to have hit a snag, with a North Korean official calling his visit “regrettable.”
  • The statement accused the U.S. of making unilateral demands.

North Korea says high-level talks with a U.S. delegation led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were “regrettable” and has accused Washington of trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning its nukes.

The statement by an unnamed North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman on Saturday came hours after Pompeo concluded two days of talks with North Korean officials led by Kim Yong Chol.

The statement says that the United States betrayed the spirit of last month’s summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by making unilateral demands on “CVID,” or the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea.

It says the outcome of the follow-up talks was “very concerning” because it has led to a “dangerous phase that might rattle our willingness for denuclearization that had been firm.”

The Dance starts anew as the Norks continue to spin their side of the negotiations as of course we shall spin our view of them. The issues however do not change.

Sanctions will remain, War Games can be scheduled tomorrow and aggressive action by the Norks can easily be answered by more than games.  The U.S. has 3 Carrier Groups and two additional AirWings stationed in striking distance.

The Norks can dance all they want their position is a binary one. Disarm and join the World, or Fire Missiles and face the consequences.

The fact that those are the only two choices will not stop the dance however. The Norks will push, hem and haw, for as long as they can.

We hold our breaths and wait and see….. more than that there is nothing the people of the world can do, but before Trump leaves office it will get settled.

No shirt, no shoes, no lefty politics….. no service

The tolerant all inclusive masters of diversity….. The Liberal Progressive.

These hypocrites have taken up a new play in their bag of nastiness. It started a couple of months ago, but is now a quick draw in their quiver of weapons.  A main tool in their love of all views and their dedication to civility. The Denial of Service.

All over D.C. NYC, and other places if you are a Trump supporter or work for him and you go out to eat it’s is now in vogue to run you out of the restaurant.  Doesn’t matter if you are with your family have little children with you it matters not.

Packs of foam at the mouth loons feel they can run you out of the restaurant. The latest was Sarah Sanders and her family, 7 people including her children were refused service by an asshole that ran a Red Hen Restaurant. Earlier this week it was the head of Homeland Security, earlier Milo and the list goes on.

The right doesn’t do this crap, never has, but it has become common practice with the left. The rules of common decency have left the building  on that side of the aisle.

Add to that the unrelenting Fake News like this weeks sudden outrage over a policy that was put into law in 1997 is having an effect, but I don’t think the one the lefty loons think it’s having. It’s sad the group that started out as the peace love and Bobby Sherman crowd has morphed into Antifa, Propagandist Liars, and Violent Mobs.

Right now this is all still fringe activity, but it is escalating if it reaches the tipping point I fear what will happen will not be the reactions they are hoping for. We shall just hope and pray it doesn’t get there.

In the meantime we watch and laugh as the hypocritical left continues to lose both their mind and composure. It’s sad but still fun to see.

DNC stunt backfires

By Patrick Van Roy On April 24th, 2018 at 1:26 am

DNC Chair Perez  made a mistake in going after Trump, Russia and Wikileaks with a lawsuit. The DNC filed a Lawsuit against the 3 in Civil Court for steeling the Election by Hacking the DNC computers.

Well both the Trump Campaign and the Spy Assange are counter suing and have a right to discovery.

A right to Discovery….. which means the DNC will have to produce the EVIDENCE they were Hacked. When you consider the DNC refused to turn their Servers over to the FBI to verify the Hack and instead demanded Obama’s FBI accept the evaluation of a company they hired to examine them, I ask who thought this suit was a good idea?

WIKILEAKS TWEETED:

“The Democrats are suing  and  for revealing how the DNC rigged the Democratic primaries. Help us counter-sue. We’ve never lost a publishing case and discovery is going to be amazing fun.”

Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.

ROFLMAO ahh such brilliance

OIG reports McCabe, fired FBI Deputy Director, lied under oath

 

By

Michael Miller

Just the tip of a very large iceberg!

The first of a number of expected reports from the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (OIG) was released Friday:

DOJ IG releases explosive report that led to firing of ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Fox News on Scribd

The report describes how Andrew McCabe, the now fired Deputy Director of the FBI, repeatedly lied to investigators regarding matters of leaking to reporter about a sensitive investigation of the Clinton Family Foundation. Other men are currently in legal jeopardy for lying to the FBI. Will the FBI’s #2 escape the same scrutiny?  The OIG has no authority to file charges but if the Department of Justice fails to do so in McCabe’s case the “stuff” will hit the fan!

Upon release of the report Trump tweeted:

Later reports are expected to address how the FBI handled investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Washington insiders see the potential for bigger bombshells to come!

First Impressions on Debate #4

By Patrick Van Roy On November 11th, 2015 at 6:30 am

The Fourth Republican Debate was tonight. Politico says Fox Business played it safe. No they played it professional and substantive. The questions were direct and Neal Cavuto did a great job of getting full definitive answers from the candidates.

No Clips just commentary. Cruz, Rubio, Fiorina, Carson, Trump, Bush, Paul, Kasich is the order I place it in.

Kasich blew it he should be done. His behavior was rude. He knew he had to have a good night and his ploy to get it was to use key interruptions. Instead he looked unpolished and flustered. Paul echoed his father and marginalized himself to the same fringe his father occupied, I’m sure just like his father he will thankfully always be just an also ran. I am sure he will be around though for many more Presidential runs.

Bush was Bush he just hasn’t got it. Jeb has to sell to the American Public that we need to elect a third Bush. He just can’t do it. Neither his father nor his brother were great Domestic Presidents. The nominee has to be able to sell 2 fronts, the first you have to have a credible plan to clean up and fix this disaster of an economy that we are in, and have a plan for fighting the war. Bush doesn’t present his plans for either of these issues with any passion. He just doesn’t sell us a reason to vote for him.

Trump was solid on issues he delivers his plans well, but his obnoxiousness is doing him damage. Carson held his own on looking confident, but still comes across short in the foreign policy arena.  Fiorina was good, she came off confident and substantive. She’s smart, passionate, and much more confident of her vision than half the men on the stage. Rubio looked good solid on the direction he wants to go and how he believes he can get there. Out of the moderate wing no one can touch him, and he’s quick and smooth verbally.

Cruz just shines. I’m biased he is my candidate and so far he just gets stronger and stronger with each debate. The man presents the Conservative Platform directly to the people. They are his jury. Cruz will not get crossover votes from the left and knows it. He has one hope, he has to get the 3 to 1 Conservative Majority of the country to come to the polls. If the Conservatives come out to vote he wins in a landslide. To even have a shot at that he has to Nail the first super Tuesday if he hopes to get the nomination. You have Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada, then you have Super Tuesday which is 11 States. He has the money to get there. That is his do or die day. It is for most of them.

All in all a very good debate.

“And ye shall know the truth,……….

By Mike Cunningham On August 24th, 2015 at 7:23 pm

………………….and the truth shall make you free. “

So sayeth Senator Menedez, in a speech which might not make him many friends within the Obama Administration, but should gain him a whole new pile of friends the length and breadth of America, along with the whole of the Western and Arab worlds, for he doth speak plainly, and to some purpose!

 

‘ I was misinformed’

By Mike Cunningham On July 27th, 2015 at 12:21 pm

My all-time favourite film is the black-and-white masterpiece ‘Casablanca’ starring the inimitable Bogart and Bergman, as well the masterly performance of Claude Rains as the corrupt, yet strangely incorruptible Casablanca Police Captain. My favourite scene and words  were :-

Captain Renault: What in heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca?

Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert.

Rick: I was misinformed.

Towards the end of this morning’s ‘Toady’ Programme on the Beeb, we were treated, if that is the appropriate term, to the usual left-wing, biased and totally one-sided critique of the American decision to end the War against Japan. That end, encompassed in total by the release of two atomic weapons, jolted the Japanese military out of their self-imposed security blanket which itself was comprised of a million volunteers for suicide, all presumably carrying explosives or grenades, who had pledged to protect the Emperor and the Homeland; along with a still-impressive and dedicated Army, and the tattered remains of the once –proud Air Force, itself a shadow of its former grandeur, and mostly comprised of the Kamikaze elements, whose pilots had been taught how to take off, but little else.

anagasakibombThe American (had to be an American) named Schlosser, was himself of the ‘Flee, for we are all doomed’ mentality, argued in level, apocalyptic tones that all fissile material should have been surrendered to the UN in 1946 (just imagine those clowns being in charge of 16,000 warheads anywhere in the present day, when the former head of the UN Human Rights Committee was Libya, then run by the totally reliable and lucid Muammar Quaddaffi), and whilst the present-day technology to supervise was American, and therefore the best, these warheads were still an accident waiting to happen. We were also given a glance at the writings and broadcasts of John Hersey, who wrote of the awesome and awful consequences of those atomic weapons, and how terrible it all was, and America should have done something else besides drop two bombs which stopped the war. America should have invaded, he opined; and counted the cost of a prophesied million-odd American military lives as one worth spending, against the ruthless killing of approximately 250,000-odd enemy lives killed in two split seconds by one uranium-, and one plutonium- bomb. We were also told that Mr. Schlosser has a new book out, but we were not told that his book is yet another well-researched (by him, with his slants, and his editorial input) blast against the nuclear weaponry which has, strangely enough, kept the global peace since those days in early August 1945.

Speaking purely for myself, as I always do; I am more than happy to be reassured that we had the likes of F.D.R., and after him the business-like Harry Truman in charge of the business of War; mainly because they were interested in one thing, and one thing only; how to end the war whilst protecting American and Allied lives. If they could do so by wiping out two cities, and thus impress the Japanese military that much more was to follow, their job was done. Afer all, the Japs started that particular shin-dig, and it was up to the Americans to prove that they could be just as ruthless towards the enemy, as that enemy had proved ruthless towards America.

aconfederate.04So the ‘Stars and Bars’ fly no more next to the South Carolina Statehouse, but I do wonder if it will be so easy to remove those same ‘Stars and Bars’ from the whole history of the South?

(Old) Mt. Holly Springs C.S. Headstone

It might be fairly easy to rip up a memorial headstone such as the one pictured and pronounce that one more ‘memory’ has gone down the road towards ‘equality’ but not so easy for others, especially if, like so many other cotton-topped politicians do, they speak and rant before studying the nature of the problem before them.

This clown says it should be sand-blasted away, and he wants all the Confederacy to be ‘disappeared’ as well. He might speak on behalf of the NAACP, but he don’t speak for the nation, even from a point of view of plain civil engineering. I mean, it took eight years to flame-cut the massive set-piece into the rock, and is the NAACP going to fund the removal of this massive piece of Southern History.

I kind of like the low-relief imagery, even on the truly gigantic scale produced on the face of the Stone Mountain; and I also admire the mindset behind the presence of those three leaders of the Confederacy, Jeff Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, in that salute to an ideal which, although doomed to defeat, never faltered, never wavered, and, ultimately, helped forge the Union we know today.

 

it all depends who died!

By Mike Cunningham On July 12th, 2015 at 1:39 pm

Cast your minds back to August last year, and the news of the tragic / necessary (strike the superfluous word out as to your own political ideals) death of black Michael Brown at the hands and bullets of a (Missouri) Ferguson City white policeman. The first news emerged that Brown had been shot in the back, as a white supremacist (naturally) policeman had objected to Brown walking down the middle of the road. Later, the background evidence was seen to support a slightly different event timeline, first with this huge six foot-four, two-hundred-odd pound man being video’d stealing two boxes of cigars from a shop, and slamming the counter-clerk into a display stand when he objected. He then commenced swaggering down the road, and when the cop told him to move, he turned and attacked the cop whilst the cop was still in his car! As he had not grabbed the cop’s gun, Brown then first ran, then turned and went back to attack the policeman, at which the cop fired six rounds, hitting Brown twice in the head, and killing him immediately. I should not need to remind you of the rioting, the claims of ‘racism’, the ‘shocked family’ issuing statements denying that Michael Brown was anything else than a ‘gentle giant’ who had spoken with the Lord. ( that’s the Black Lord, by the way) We also remember the blatant attacks on the Ferguson police by none other that former Attorney-General Holder, who ‘felt the parents’ pain’ as he routinely denigrated honest policemen whose behaviour would later be proved to be impeccable. We also saw three White House aides attend the funeral. Lots and lots of ‘We feel your pain’ bullshit.

We turn now the murder of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, allegedly at the hands of a Mexican laborer who had been deported five times. This same ‘illegal immigrant’ who was shielded against questioning or arrest as to his documentation status by the so-called ‘Sanctuary city’ of San Francisco bought a gun, and killed Kathryn Steinie. Strange to relate, not many people rioted on the San Francisco streets in response to this motiveless killing; no calls for a judicial review of the way in which this woman was shot as she walked with her father and a friend on the Embarcadero; no  high-profile civil-rights activists came to comfort the stricken parent as he watched his daughter moved into the morgue. Not a peep from the White House on the inaction of the so-called ‘Sanctuary City” of San Francisco’s authorities when they did not arrest this illegal immigrant despite Federal statutes stating that they must.

Now just stand back, and gaze at the two killings, if you will. Two very different crimes, but two killings just the same: one black man dies; one white woman dies, but there the equailty ends. One white woman dies at the hand and gun of a Mexican ‘illegal’, and the Country just shakes its collective head, and turns away. a black man dies after attempting to attack, maim or even kill a white policeman, and the city’s black population explodes into riot, the Washington big-wigs swarm the city, the civil-rights talking heads gear up for the long haul, and a cop resigns despite being cleared of any crime.

Do I hear the faint strains of ‘The Home of the Brave’ as they fade away; or was that tune ‘Nobody, nobody knows my, my sorrow’ instead?
