This is not necessary.

A pair of Norwegian lawmakers has nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after he signed an agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The president will be extremely embarrassed by this, but one can understand their motivation. Whatever comes of the talks with NK, Trump has made brave and necessary steps. However there is no need for him to be nominated. There is a better way.

The Kenyan was awarded the Peace Prize as a result of mass, infantile hysteria. He did nothing for it and never went on to justify it. Therefore it would be most fitting for Trump’s predecessor to be stripped of the award and for it to be passed on to Trump.


  1. Shouldn’t the wee fat bloke with the mad hair be nominated too?

  2. To be fair to Obama, he was as confused as many other people, as to why he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

  3. Shouldn’t the wee fat bloke with the mad hair be nominated too?


    After he excuted his uncle using a flame thrower, I think his chances are pretty slim.

  4. President Trump didn’t do the “deal” with Kim Jung-un for a prize. He did it simply because it was the right thing to do to protect America and by extension the world. Liberals will never understand nor except the motivation of a person who does something without the motivation for elevating him or herself in the eyes of his fellow citizens.

  5. Kim forced the American president, through his nuclear and missile tests, to accept North Korea as a nuclear equal, to provide security guarantees to North Korea, and to cancel war games with South Korea that the North has protested for decades.

    In exchange for these concessions, Trump seems to have won astonishingly little. In a joint statement, Kim merely “reaffirmed” the same commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula that North Korea has repeatedly made since 1992.

    The most remarkable aspect of the joint statement was what it didn’t contain. There was nothing about North Korea freezing plutonium and uranium programs, nothing about destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles, nothing about allowing inspectors to return to nuclear sites, nothing about North Korea making a full declaration of its nuclear program, nothing about a timetable, nothing about verification, not even any clear pledge to permanently halt testing of nuclear weapons or long-range missiles.

    Kim seems to have completely out-negotiated Trump, and it’s scary that Trump doesn’t seem to realize this. For now Trump has much less to show than past negotiators who hammered out deals with North Korea like the 1994 Agreed Framework, which completely froze the country’s plutonium program with a rigorous monitoring system.

    There’s still plenty we don’t know and lots of uncertainty about the future. But for now, the bottom line is that there’s no indication that North Korea is prepared to give up its nuclear weapons, and Trump didn’t achieve anything remotely as good as the Iran nuclear deal, which led Iran to eliminate 98 percent of its enriched uranium.

    There was also something frankly weird about an American president savaging Canada’s prime minister one day and then embracing the leader of the most totalitarian country in the world.

    …it’s still bewildering how much Trump gave and how little he got. The cancellation of military exercises will raise questions among our allies, such as Japan, about America’s commitment to those allies.

  6. If “the Kenyan” had negotiated the “deal” that Trump negotiated this week (no verification, no time-scale, ally South Korea sold out), he would have been crucified by the very same people who are now prostrating themselves in front of Trump and worshipping him as the conquering, peace-loving hero of all time.

  7. All this is to say that Kim Jong-un proved the more able negotiator. North Korean government officials have to limit their computer time, because of electricity shortages, and they are international pariahs — yet they are very savvy and shrewd, and they were counseled by one of the smartest Trump handlers of all, President Moon Jae-in of South Korea.

    My guess is that Kim flattered Trump, as Moon has, and that Trump simply didn’t realize how little he was getting. On my most recent visit to North Korea, officials were asking me subtle questions about the differences in views of Mike Pompeo and Nikki Haley; meanwhile, Trump said he didn’t need to do much homework.

  8. What ‘deal’ was done Eddie?

    The wee fat bloke has played a blinder.

    Did he use a flame thrower H?

    I’d read he obliterated him by shooting him with an anti aircraft shell, (a bit like those kids playing football on a beach in Gaza). I don’t think that should be held against him in the nomination. I mean, who wouldn’t like to do that to some members of their family?

  9. Did he use a flame thrower H?

    According to some expert on NK, who was on the radio this morning Paul.

    That’s exactly what he done.

  11. Phantom, as per your 6.52:


  12. As I said about his uncle:

    I don’t think that should be held against him in the nomination. I mean, who wouldn’t like to do that to some members of their family?

  13. In fairness to Trump, perhaps his bad negotiating in Singapore was due to his weepy psychological meltdown at the comments by the savage anti American Justin Trudeau

  14. There didn’t used to be political cartoons like this in the Toronto Star

    There are now.


  15. Shouldn’t the wee fat bloke with the mad hair be nominated too?

    Ruth Davidson?

  16. Lol!


  17. Well done to Pete for standing up for the LGBT community!

  18. I wonder will Trump pull the USA out of the World Cup in 2026? Why would he want the USA to be hosting it jointly with its deadly enemies Canada and Mexico? He should withdraw the bid and tell FIFA that it’s “America First!”.

    “World Cup 2026: Canada, US & Mexico joint bid wins right to host tournament”


  19. If he cancels all US involvement for any reason, he has my vote.

    Keep soccer out of here!!

  20. I’ll second that Phantom. But sadly you still have that equally ridiculous American football. Or as you call it, football.

  21. But at least in NFL or college football, there are scoring plays.

    The last score in soccer I think happened in 1932. Just a bunch of guys running around, and flashing signs on the sideline to completely distract you from even that.

  22. Phantom

    My mates down the pub are allways trying get me to engage in their football conversations.
    From what I can ascertain, England are a fantastic team, but are just unlucky or being unfairly prejudiced against. And they only ever seem to talk about the glory days of English football in terms of many years ago. That being said and even though though I have no interest in football, I’d still like to see our team win.

  23. I’d like to see England win also.

  24. Dave.

    It’s the same in the labs, I normally lose the will to live.

    One colleague is a mad Chelsea supporter, he has the Chelsea mug, the keyring, the tattoo on his arm. If they lose, which appears to be quite often, he won’t actually talk to anyone for a day or so?.

    I just don’t get it?.


  25. I’d like to see England win also.

    Us English, are born winners.

    …If they lose, which appears to be quite often, he won’t actually talk to anyone for a day or so?.

    I just don’t get it?.

    I can totally relate to this. I have many friends and colleagues who act this way also. A woman I used to work with in Liverpool many years ago, actually divorced her husband because one of the nasty things he used to do, was get angry and hit her if Liverpool lost. I realise thankfully this is a rare event, but it shows how passionate some people get about the so called beautiful game.

  27. Dave.

    When I am up in Wirral, working at the Ellesmere port plant, football is like a religion.

  28. I just don’t get it?

    Are you gay? That might be it.

  29. Harri,

    When I am up in Wirral, working at the Ellesmere port plant, football is like a religion.

    Oh yes mate that’s certainly true. My brother and his other half absolutely worship the football. When Liverpool are playing there’s nothing more important than that match. I reckon my brother is reschedule urgent heart surgery to watch Liverpool play.
    Much to their disappointment though, my brother’s two oldest boys are not into football and are well into computer games. Thanks in no Small Part to their uncles tutelage. I have turned them to the dark side.

  30. Pete Moore,

    Are you gay? That might be it.

    If your point is that gay men don’t like football, how come all of the gay men I know like football? And also, I hate football, and rampantly heterosexual that I make you look like a mincing ponce Pete.



  31. When Liverpool are playing there’s nothing more important than that match.

    Sports are important in the US, but IMO the level of importance that your entire society would have to English Premier and national team football is much greater than we ever see for any baseball, NFL or NBA or hockey games.

    The only possible comparison I might think of is with college football, which is basically a professional sport, and which in parts of the country are bigger than the NFL.

  32. Here’s the video of De Niro’s “fuck Trump”, and it’s very interesting for the frenzied support for the sentiment from the deranged thespians, and for the comments to the segment which indicate that the luvvies are reviled by the public:


  33. Dave

    You do realise that being excitedly obsessed with watching a bunch of men running around a field in small sweaty shorts hugging and kissing each other every five minutes is the very measure of robust red blooded heterosexual masculinity. Any man not interested in such a spectacle must be gay . It’s pure logic innit 😜

  34. Di Niro’s conduct the other night was disgraceful.

    He’s an undignified bum, just as bad as the guy who he criticizes.

  35. Phantom – it’s the reaction of the audience that’s of interest for they loved it.

  36. They’re a bigger disgrace than the vulgar slob De Niro is

    Meryl Streep standing up for ” three cheers for Polanski ” comes to mind

    I don’t care how bad Trump is, they should have a little dignity for once in their trendy lives

  37. Colm.

    As always, you speak the truth. 😁

  38. Phantom, really? As a Canadian I find it baffling the amount of time and treasure wasted on sports in the US

  39. There is way too much sedentary watching of sports and not nearly enough of the US ( or Canadian ) person playing a sport

    But say when a country is the World Cup soccer thing, the country can shut down for the match. When Ireland was in it some time back, I am told that highways were empty, some intercity buses did not run. Everyone pretty much was watching the same event at the same time. There’s no equivalent here in any Olympic competition, Super Bowl, etc. Lots of people watch those games, but many couldn’t care less. There is no one event that nearly everyone watches, esp now when all audiences are fragmented way more than before

  40. Size of the Country means a lot in that area Phantom….

  41. As for the post I see no reason anyone would want a Nobel Prize.

  42. Totally off topic…. here’s another reason we need a wall on our southern border and need to control ALL immigration from Mexico.

  43. We need a wall on our southern border as well
