The Door is Open

By Patrick Van Roy On June 12th, 2018

What has been achieved with the Summit…. ?

On one hand a lot, on the other hand nothing.

The door is open that is all. The negotiations have begun nothing more. North Korea is notorious for promising everything and delivering nothing. Is this the case once again? We shall have to wait and see.

Everything rests on Verification.  All the Sanctions will stay in place, the 3 Aircraft Carrier Attack Groups will stay in place, the 2 Air Force Attack Groups will stay on Guam.

The ball is in the little fatman’s hands, we shall have to see what he does with it.


And we shall proceed from there……

  1. Well, I live in California and I think it was only last year that Kim Jong Un was lobbying missiles our way.
    It was, too say the least, a little nerve racking. Eventually, he was going to succeed.

    So, I think this is a big, big deal.

    The definite, real and measurable deescalation of aggression is a welcome breath of fresh air and sanity.

  2. As I predicted Kim cleaned his clock. He gave up nothing and trump sold the farm for 3 beans

  3. Kim has gained great stature

    Whether the US has gained anything, time will tell

  4. “Anyone who cares more about optics than denuclearization need not be taken seriously.”

  5. There has been no denuclearization

    Don’t be naïve

    This is the first step of 100 mile walk, when we’re dealing with somebody who breaks all his promises

  6. Wrong phantom you are dealing with 2 people who break all their promises

  7. Correct

    Betrayal And deceit are their MO, both of the petty tyrants

  8. “What has been achieved with the Summit…. ? On one hand a lot, on the other hand nothing.”

    President Trump’s extended hand “nothing” achievement is 1,000% better than the ignorant, ignoring “nothings” of the past Washington D,C. Beltway Political Club Member presidents. Both Dumbocrat and Rino.

    What promises has Trump broke…?

    Please supply list.

  10. omg ATW has turned into a Trump porn site ,
    ATW – A Trump Wave – the sycophancy is now as nauseous as it is noxious.
    count me out , i want debate not worship of idols.

  11. He promised to Negotiate a replacement for Obamacare that would cover every American citizen with decent healthcare , That was cheaper and better Then what was there

    He lied, And he is actively trying to Abolish the regulation that requires health insurance to cover pre-existing conditions,

    He not only made no effort to do what he said he would, he is trying to do the opposite, to take health coverage Away from people that have it

    He lies because that is who he is and who he always has been

  12. CONGRESS’s Job….

    He promised to Negotiate a replacement for Obamacare that would cover every American citizen with decent healthcare , That was cheaper and better Then what was there

    Hard to debate with a man who does NOT know how his Government works…. Take a Course they’re Free.

  13. Trump never tried to negotiate good health care coverage with the Congress

    He is Trying to dismantle the protections that exist now

    He is a liar and a criminal for the ages

  14. A plain text reading of the Constitution would say his tariff policies are unconstitutional but a lot of the ‘plain text’ers seem to be mighty quiet on the subject. You seem to think it is Congress’s power to do something when Trump messes up but the President’s power to do things when he get’s it right.

  15. They are in love with him and will follow any policy that Trump proposes

    Trump could propose the implementation of communism In the US, and they would all agree with it if Trump said that it was good to do it

  16. Trump could also cure cancer, and the liberals would still find something about Trump to whinge & whine about.

    😏

    😀

  18. count me out , i want debate not worship of idols.

    Says ATW’s resident preacher.

    😏

  19. You need to be a liberal to oppose his juvenile hijinks and his picking fights with friends of this country?

  20. Wait — how come this totally unverifiable nuclear deal with N. Korea is good, while the totally verifiable nuclear deal with Iran is terrible? Oh, right Obama

    ( Borowitz )

  21. Phantom: you are like Bill Maher who roots for another recession.

    you are rooting for failure and you should be ashamed of yourself.

  22. Democrats today: tax cuts are “crumbs” and lowest African American unemployment in history is “big whoop”

    this is pathetic

  23. Why do you say that

    I’ve rooted for the Obama and Trump recovery since day one

  24. Ha! so you are a Democrat, Phantom? I remember when you used to play that you were not a dem, but rather an even handed independent or something – all bullshit – obviously. But still. the mask is off

  25. Here’s what I remember as Obama was leaving office:

    1. we were told that Trump didn’t have a “magic wand” – that GDP would never be like the “old days” and would stick around 1% – and that the jobs of the past (middle class shops with security) were never coming back

    2. we were told that ISIS was going to be around for a long time

    3. we were told that robots would take over a large part of the jobs in the US – that we would never be manufacturers again – that this was the normal course of progress and globilisation

  26. “Trump never tried to negotiate good health care coverage with the Congress
    He is Trying to dismantle the protections that exist now
    He is a liar and a criminal for the ages”

    This hyperbolic melt-down of hate is just sad, Phantom. You used to pretend at least to be measured.

  27. Trump has a magic wand. He paid 130k to use it with Stormy Daniels.

  28. This deal gave Kim his open door to the World, eliminated war maneuvers with South Korea and we got nothing in return except Trump at least being out of the country.

  29. This deal gave Kim his open door to the World, eliminated war maneuvers with South Korea and we got nothing in return

    Oh,I dunno, it gives the liberals something else to whinge & whine about Trump.

    😏

  30. Trump didn’t pay billions for hostage release like Obama paid to Iran.

    Trump got an open door to monitor the North Korean denuclearization in a signed memo. Obama did not get a signed memo from Iran.

  31. Harri – There are many conservatives questioning this.

  32. If The Kenyan had met with Kim Ding Dong, Leftists would be having their first orgasms.

    My particular little joy was a commie today bemoaning that the Stars and Stripes was lined up alongside the NK flag. Yeah, the Left suddenly cares about the flag.

  33. “There are many conservatives questioning this”

    you mean “conservatives” like John McCain and Ben Shapiro? Those establishment types who hate Trump because he represents the People and not their little elite group of so-called opinion makers and globalist “free” traders? Those conservatives?

  34. HA HA HA HA HA

    https://twitter.com/91Shahji/status/1006415765082427393

    I love Trump.

  35. Obama returned Iranian property to its owner

    What would you have done, steal it?

  36. The fact that Trump is sending liberals even more mad, is just a bonus.

  37. Obama betrayed every ally we had in the ME to guarantee that the Iranians could develop Nuclear Weapons including giving them ILLEGALLY over 100 Billion in Cash to pay for the support of terrorists and terrorism.

  38. Its a wonderful thing to see the liberals blowing themselves up in Trump Derangement Syndrome rage

  39. ain’t it though……

  40. Have to say, that wee fat bloke has played a blinder.

    Trump could also cure cancer, and the liberals would still find something about Trump to whinge & whine about

    Whereas Theresa May, any Labour politician, anyone conected with the EU or the remain campaign etc etc could and rightworld would praise them to the high heavens H?

  41. if it worked and made a profit we would…..

  42. Not quite Paul

    Take Chairman May, at first I actually praised her for her tough stance with Brussels.

    Of course I was too!ed, and she was lying, I should’ve known better.

    Labour are incapable of anything.

    As for Brussels, you are correct.

  43. *fooled

  44. Jay Nordlinger, Jim Geraghty, Michael Dougherty were among those conservatives who were critical.

  45. Why not actually coolly look at what has been agreed factually rather than basing opinions on a blindly LOVE Trump or HATE Trump axis.

  46. Sound H.

    Glass houses and stones and all that.

  47. Why not actually coolly look at what has been agreed factually

    Colm, as far as I can see it’s a lot of flowery language and broad brush strokes about ‘effort’ and ‘commitment’. There doesn’t seem to be anything of substance:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-44453330

    As I said above, that wee fat bloke has played a blinder.

  48. so Colm who here blindly loves Trump?

  49. so Colm who here blindly loves Trump?

    Precisely.

    No one.

  50. Correct…..

    but there’s a whole list of those that Blindly Hate Him…..

  51. I’d say that Patty and Eddie blindly love Trump whereas Pat and Pete just have a huge man crush on him.

  52. Paul

    Unlike the Liberal Obama adoration.

    😏

  53. That wasn’t the question though was it?

  54. I am actually pleasantly shocked at his performance….. he has long surpassed what I ever expected of him.

    I give him the credit he’s earned nothing more. I voted for him because he was not the beast and he fairly beat my guy for the nomination.

    My only wish was a Clinton loss and 4 years of just delightful insanity. I am both shocked and delighted at the actions he has taken as President. The last person to achieve this much was Reagan.

    Reagan put us on a 12yr boom in growth what has been accomplished in the last year with the tax cuts and the opening of the fuel industry the boom won’t even fully begin for three to five and then it will last for a minimum of 15. There are 6 major corporations that have committed to setting up new production facilities and retooling existing ones. Hint Hint some of them are Steel…

    add to that he has put 40 Conservative Judges on the appellate court level these are lifetime positions I disagree with that, they should not be lifetime, but I’ll take the Spoils. His Supreme court pick was excellent. And by this time next year 3 Trillion will have been locked into military hardware with one and half already having been spent. We are at War.

    I would have never said he was capable of achieving any of these things. If he sticks his head totally up his ass tomorrow…. my politics have been served.

  55. My request was that those here comment on the agreement without pivoting it around Trump but with the exception of Paul’s 8:21pm comment, every subsequent one has been exactly about Trump.

  56. No one here idolized Obama the way that the Trump backscratchers and shoe shine tea.m have idolized Trump constantly here, rebroadcasting his spreeches, press conferences, farts.

    Mr. Obama is a personally honorable man who I never voted for. Trump is a personally dishonorable man . I agree with some of his positions, disagree with others, but I would never vote for him because he is so completely a dishonorable person, such a total liar.

    The appeal of Trump is Personality driven, and it is also fueled by the resentments of the the uneducated angry white working-class. These are interesting times

  57. It’s a great agreement. The best agreement. There’s never been a better agreement.

    It’ll be carved on Mount Trumpmore.

  58. I see, Phantom.

    So if the Norks denuclearise, and peace comes to Korea, it’s all down to white men. We’re so great.

    When do blacks start thanking us for record low unemployment?

  59. The intentions expressed in the agreement are of course great and who could object to them ? Let’s wait and see the verifiable of how physical denuclearisation happens over the coming months and years before we start cracking open the Champagne. You can’t say the Burger tastes great before the meat has even begun to sizzle on the barbecue 😉

  60. Oops missed the word proof after verifiable…

  61. Pete

    If I win $1 billion in the lotto, I’ll buy the next round

    Let’s see what happens

    This is the first step of a very very long journey. Nothing has been achieved yet

    Let’s hope for the best

  62. If peace comes to Korea, the architects will likely be Koreans

    They are a hugely capable and tough people. I know some of them

  63. Mr. Obama was a Dictator that wanted to change our system at it’s core and he said so… there was not an honorable thing about him and slowly but surely the chickens are coming home to roost….

    He used our government like a tin pot dictator engaging the IRS, DOJ, FBI, and the Press to attack and destroy his political enemies.

    The purging fire to remove his corruption has just begun.

  64. They are a hugely capable and tough people. I know some of them

    the ultimate of racist remarks

  65. Sure he did

    And he founded Isis on the weekend, when he wasn’t running guns to Mexican drug lords

    Oh he was just so horrible

  66. How is it racist to praise the Korean people?

    Take your meds

  67. So Fast and Furious the crime not the movie never happened Phantom?

    Eric Holder wasn’t held in Criminal Contempt of Congress…

    none of this happened?

    Another weapon lost in the Obama administration’s failed Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation has purportedly been traced to two more killings, including the fatal shooting of a police chief in Mexico.

    The officer was killed Jan. 29 in the city of Hostotipaquillo when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire, according to Justice Department records obtained by The Los Angeles Times. The chief’s bodyguard was also killed and a second bodyguard and the chief’s wife were wounded.

    Operation Fast and Furious was run out of an Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives field office in Arizona. The plan was to sell guns to buyers and trace them in the black market as the crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, with the expectation they would lead federal officials to drug cartel leaders.

    However, hundreds of guns were lost in the operation. And roughly 210 people have either been killed or wounded by them, according to Mexican officials.

    Just propaganda…..

  68. I hold Congress in the contempt that it so richly deserves

    Obama is an honorable man, you bow down before a pickpocket

  69. They are a hugely capable and tough people. I know some of them

    say that about blacks, jews, etc….. yeah they’re some of your best friends….

    racist

  70. Mr. Obama was a Dictator

    So the US isn’t only not a democracy it was also am autocracy?

  71. He was a black dictator Who made all the white people pick cotton

    Oh the horror

  72. The total hypocrisy of the US demanding that another sovereign nation dismantle their nuclear weapons program whilst making no concessions/promises to dismantle it’s own arsenal is beyond arrogance.
    Lead by example not by demands.

  73. The US has not been threatening our neighbors with nukes nor do we starve our own people to pay for our weapons

    NK has threatened South Korea Japan and the US explicitly

    We have every right to remove that threat to us, preferably by negotiations

    Thank you for your concern

  74. JM….. lol

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsZPWsVNTqo

  75. Obama was one shifty dictator his time was over so he left. The animal!

  76. Obama acted like a dictator and his crimes are slowly being revealed and those that acted on his behalf will be prosecuted.

    Watch and see.

  77. Quebec and Singapore clearly show Trump is incapable of handling foreign affairs. He was slain by a 35 year old with no world experience. Trump gave up US South Korean military exercises without informing the South Koreans or the US military. If Trump knew anything about this type of negotiation he would have asked for a list of all North Korean nuclear sites, their specific contents, method of destruction and completion dates. Until that was received and approved, he should not even have talked to Kim. The list of nuclear sites should have been the basis of negotiation. If Kim did not hand it over, Trump would know Kim was not serious about getting rid of his nuclear arsenal.

    On top of giving Kim the mass murderer, torturer, and many other outrages equal standing to the POTUS, the US probably picked up his hotel and amusement bills. Nice job Chump!

  78. It is pointless to engage with someone who insists that Obama was a dictator. One can certainly disagree with his policies, but he was duly elected in free and fair elections, served only his Constitutional terms of office, and freedom of speech, press, assembly all existed in all their splendor during his terms.

  79. Obama was pure evil who never did one good thing.

    Trump is the savvy deal maker who has not done one thing wrong as president

    It’s all baby talk, every word of it.

  80. totally baby news
    soon they’ll be saying
    Obama believed that black was black and white was white
    trump believers have studied colour and art history at ivy league level ( no less )
    its now been revealed that what obama thought was a lie , it was fake news
    Black is in fact white and white is in fact black

    If you disagree , just get over it, Hilary Lost you retards
    this is the new world order, everything before was fake news
    so history in the us officially began 2016
    ( and they call the Taliban mad or fundamental )
    Jaysus wept !

  81. Hilary Lost you retards

    Ahh, abuse…

    How unusual!.

    😏

  82. I hope the Hate Crime Police are not reading this blog.

    Disability hate crime begins with verbal abuse

    https://www.theguardian.com/society/joepublic/2011/sep/13/gemma-hayter-disability-hate-crime-abuse

  83. Patrick Van Roy,

    Obama acted like a dictator and his crimes are slowly being revealed and those that acted on his behalf will be prosecuted.

    LOL, That’s ferry funny Patrick….. Oh wait, you’re being serious.

  84. If Obama had got the deal that Trump had just got, given away the military cooperation with the South Koreans, given international legitimacy to Kim, all in exchange for a gentleman’s agreement with a dictator, then the right in America would have eviscerated him over it.

  85. Mahons you don’t have to engage this site sucks according to you so just leave why don’t you.

    Obama acted like a Dictator Democrats like Mahons and Phantom are too stupid to care about the abuse of power.

    He used the IRS, DOJ, FBI, and the NSA to attack regular American Citizens who held different political views than him.

    They are both Ok with that. They support KGB tactics being used by an American President.

    Mahons you being a Lawyer should be outraged, but since you care nothing about the Law except how it can make him rich as long as it’s not abused against you too bad right….

    You’re a disgrace.

  86. It’s going to be interesting reading what you people write over the next 3-5 years as Official after official gets indicted for the crimes Obama committed.

  87. Politically motivated prosecutions against opposition politicians are a possibility.

    They will backfire on the tyrant, and on you, if they are tried.

    That’s not how this country works.

  88. The President claims North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat. Is that true?

  89. This does not look like any successful negotiation.

    Trump, who was not prepared, gave up a lot, and was given a bag of nice words.

  90. Criminal Acts were committed, violations of civil rights.

    You just confirmed that you are perfectly comfortable with elected official using the IRS, DOJ, FBI, and the NSA to attack regular American Citizens who held different political views than them.

    You think that’s American Values? You think That’s how this country works…. ?

    Move to Europe Phantom does your company have a Moscow office?

  91. You want political revenge, as does your master.

    That’s not how this country works.

  92. Mahons,

    The President claims North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat. Is that true?

    I wouldn’t like to put money on it.

  93. No Phantom I don’t…. and you refuse to see that.

    I don’t care about Obama, I don’t care about Clinton. They are gone, I care about the Federal Employees who broke the Law gotten away with it, still work for the government and can do it again.

  94. Man, poor Trump just can’t catch a break. People complain when he recklessly threatens nuclear war AND when he lavishes praise on brutal dictators.

    Those are the two settings, folks: Fellatio or Armageddon. Pick one.

  95. That’s a classic Daphne

  96. prevert…..

  97. Yes trump is, he admitted as much

  98. no Daphne

  99. Brilliant Daphne. 😁

  100. I would choose felattio every time, but only Bill Clinton style.

    He gets it for free, he gets paid big bucks for it, he’s married. And he gets away with it.

  101. True enough H. Stormy Daniels must be the most expensive BJ of all time.

  102. Precisely Paul

    He’s obviously never spent any quality time in Germany.

    $130,00 X 30 Euro’s is a lot of fun.

    😀

  103. Divided by 30 Euro’s.

    😏

  104. I bow to your superior experience H……..
