North Korea’s Kim says denuclearization is on the table; tells Singapore’s PM ‘entire world is watching’

North Korea’s Kim says denuclearization is on the table; tells Singapore’s PM ‘entire world is watching’

Optimistic, President Trump has “a feeling that this one-time opportunity will not be wasted!”

Legal Insurrection has been following the developments surrounding the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday in Singapore.
Both leaders have arrived, and North Korean state media organization Korean Central News Agency provided some details on the items on the schedule for the Tuesday talks, as well as the fact that Kim’s fashionable sister would be part of the North Korean delegation.

It said that the two leaders would discuss a “permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism” on the Korean Peninsula, denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern.

The report also said Kim was accompanied by Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, Defence Minister No Kwang-chol, and Kim’s sister Kim Yo-jong.

…After arriving in Singapore, Kim spared no time in heading for the presidential palace for a meeting with the city state’s prime minister, Lee Hsien Loong.

Kim, dressed in a pinstriped Mao suit, beamed widely as he shook hands with Lee in front of the press. The two appeared to engage in an animated exchange immediately after they sat down for talks.

Kim told Lee: “The entire world is watching the historic summit between the DPRK and the United States of America, and thanks to your sincere efforts … we were able to complete the preparation for the historic summit.”

President Donald Trump sounded optimistic as he arrived in Singapore for the meeting.

Asked how he was feeling about the summit shortly after he stepped off the plane, Mr Trump – who is on his first visit to Singapore as president – said simply: “Very good.”

…En route from Canada, the President tweeted that tomorrow’s meeting was a chance to achieve a “truly wonderful result for North Korea and the world”.

He wrote: “It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong Un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before. Create peace and great prosperity for his land.

“I look forward to meeting him and have a feeling that this one-time opportunity will not be wasted!”

USA Today has reported that Trump and Kim will meet one-on-one with translators at 9AM local time, which is 9PM ET on Monday.

Everyone should brace themselves for a global media feeding frenzy, likely heavy on the #FakeNews and the scripted message.

Every broadcast and cable news network, plus untold numbers of print and online news organizations, are sending star anchors and correspondents to a luxury, five-star hotel in Singapore to cover the historic summit between the U.S. and North Korea. Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Bret Baier, NBC’s Lester Holt and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos will all be there — eager to have a say about the unprecedented and fascinating encounter between President Trump and Kim Jong-un at the posh, 30-acre Capella Hotel and Resort in the host city, with its fabulous views of the South China Sea.

Those are just the American teams.

…Meanwhile, unapologetic anti-Trump journalists likely have scripted their slant against the success of the event in advance, which is a shame in some ways for the news organizations as well as their viewers, readers or listeners. Politico has already referred to the summit as “surreal” while the Washington Post pondered if the meeting would be “photo op or a disaster.”

We will continue following the summit, using Asian news outlets that have been demonstrably less anti-Trump than their American counterparts.

And yet, a guy nicknamed “The Worm” will likely have more influence on what happens, than they do. 😀

If I were a bettor, I’d put a 401k on the prewritten narrative from most of the media. Kim will win the day. Trump dumb. Kim smarter. Yeah!!!

    There is an attractive path for Kim here – the only true US interests are denuclearization, and an end to the ICBM program. If the US gets those two things, we will feel free to give him all kinds of support in other areas. Those two areas aren’t actually useful to Kim except as bargaining chips to hang onto power, so if he gets a chance to cash them in in exchange for security, it would be profitable for Kim to do so.

      Watch the price of BitCoin. Trump is not stupid enough to send Kim pallets of cash. But, he could transfer a large amount of untraceable electronic currency.

Here’s a few observations;

1. Let’s hope Whoa Fat takes inspiration from Singapore’s status as a benevolent dictatorship and tries to emulate this same political setup in NK.

2. ‘Uman rights harpies will be banging on about not doing business with any regime figures who have abused the human rights of the Norks. All well and good in the liberals perfect unicorn world but the brain dead dumb as fuck left has to understand that it’s far better to bring these scum in to the sunlight than it is to leave them out in the cold cause we can’t find any regime playa’s who haven’t fucked over an uncle or an aunty because they looked sideways at a street pavement.

3. The worst possible outcome for the left is for the Norks to settle for peace. Yet on the same hand the left will completely ignore this summit as a stepping stone to peace. It’s what happens next that is critical. Should no deal be reached the left will latch on to that harder than a fat chick latching on to an empty mars bar wrapper!

4. Oh but what about THAT G6+1 photo!! World peace be fucked!! And look, squirrel

Keeping my fingers crossed, this would be a win for everybody, although the left will find issue with it somewhere.

If Trump comes away with a credible peace plan with verifiable denuclearization, I can’t wait to hear Schumer and Pelosi’s critique. Knowing Trump’s success would totally destroy their chances of taking over Congress will undoubtedly make them lose their ever-loving minds. That alone is reason to pray for him. Just watching the Dems explode will be worth the few billion we have pony up to help NK.

Trump says he will present any agreement to the Senate for ratification. Can’t wait to see the Dems vote against peace.

Amazing how a Worm and some insults brought us to this point.

To MattMusson:
Trump said that the US won’t pay, and that those in the region should foot the bill. So far he’s keeping his promises on all things, and I’ve no reason to think he’ll change here.

I think the MSM should be denormalized.

When I was a kid we had a no class trashy old woman who lives down on the corner. She was always gossiping always spreading lies about everybody in the community. People would roll their eyes and expectation have her next rant.

Then one summer people started to ignore her I don’t know why I was too young. But it didn’t matter what you said around her didn’t matter what she said to anyone anymore. I think people finally wised up that she wasn’t worth their time and energy. She wasn’t worth worrying about anymore.

I feel that way sometimes when I watch how we react to the media. They are nothing more than a Democrat Campaign Commercial.

I hear Trump is taking him to Disney World. It’s a smart move.

Trump; “You like that? That’s Pink Floyd. We call it Rock N Roll.”

Trump: “Cotton Candy. Fun but don’t get it in your hair. What? You want to ride the triple loop again? Okay. Mike, we’re going to ride the triple loop again. Hold our Cotton Candy”

Trump: “Don’t stare. We calls those Double D’s. American women tend to be more ah curvy than their counterparts back home.”

Trump: “…wow wasn’t that fun day. Did you like Rock N Roll, Cotton Candy and Double D boobs? Well, you can have nuclear weapons and be an outcast all alone with your poverty and starvation, or you can trade all that for the Rock N Roll, Cotton Candy and Double Boobs.

Trump: What’s that? Oh. Yah I think we could find a way to build a Disney Park in Pyongyang. Yes, with a triple loop too.’

    I always thought it would have been a good idea to let Nikita Khrushchev visit Disneyland, as he wanted to, in 1959. And send him home with a copy of the Sears, Roebuck “Big Book” … just to let him know what he was really up against.
