Bloomberg reported, “North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appears to have departed for Russia via his luxury armored train, South Korean media reported, ahead of expected talks with President Vladimir Putin in Vladivostok that the U.S. said would touch on arms transfers to help the Kremlin’s war machine.
“Kim’s personal train was seen moving slowly toward the northeast border area, YTN cable TV reported, citing a South Korean government official it didn’t identify. The official said Kim may hold a summit with Putin on Wednesday. The Dong-A Ilbo newspaper also reported the train was headed for Russia and expected to cross the border early Tuesday.”
Come ride the little train that is rollin’ down the tracks to the junction (Vlad Putin Junction)!
Kim visited in 2019, but not to arm Putin’s latest war. This would not happen if DC had not reversed the actual 2020 election results and installed Biden. But DC preferred a crook over an honest man because President Trump’s foreign policy was a retro America First policy that reached out to adversaries.
On June 30, 2019, NPR reported, “President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for the third time on Sunday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to step foot in North Korea before announcing that the two countries would look to revive stalled nuclear talks.
“The meeting, held behind closed doors at the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two Koreas, lasted longer than Trump’s initial stated plan of simply shaking hands.”
He also met with Putin and Chairman Xi, hosting the latter at Mar-a-Lago.
Meanwhile, Biden went to India and made an ass of himself. First, he messed up the name of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, then he went to Vietnam and messed up an international press conference.
Earlier, he accused the crown prince of murder — and then asked for him to cut the price of oil. The prince almost laughed in his face. After 80-plus years of being a trusted ally, the House of Saud is aligning with Russia and Red China.
These mistakes are deliberate. Biden is weakening America and ending its post-USSR status as the world’s only superpower. The world tires of dealing with a bipolar America that one year is the leader of the free world and the next year a doddering old fool.
Trump held NATO accountable and forced our allies to live up to their commitments to spend money on their militaries. Biden made an Irish exit from Afghanistan without telling our allies. The Council on Foreign Relations cheered.
It also cheered him in 2018 when he told them: “I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
“So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said — I said, call him.
“I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”
His 12 trips to Kiev in eight years as vice president were to collect bribes via Hunter.
Republicans all know this. Expect them to do nothing. Democrats impeached Trump for asking Zelensky to investigate Biden’s corruption.
You see, friends, Washington not only does not want to make America great again but DC denizens do not want the USA to be a superpower. They want Red China to be No. 1.
Consider Congress. Eric Swalwell had an affair with a Chinese spy. He did not lose his seat on the Committee on Homeland Security. Senator Dianne Feinstein’s chauffeur for two decades turned out to be a Chinese spy. She did not lose her seat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
When Obama told token Russian president Medvedev he would be more flexible in his second term, Republicans did nothing because they agreed. How ironic that in a debate, he mocked Romney’s anti-Russian rhetoric by saying, “the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
Now all of Washington is anti-Russian as they shovel billions in unmarked bills to the Money Laundering Republic of Ukraine, where prosecutors who ask to any questions lose their job. Putin fires his — with a cannon.
I opposed helping Ukraine from the get-go. Back when I was blogging, I wrote, “Don’t be neoconned again” on March 4, 2022 when the war had just begun.
The hysteria at the time was hilarious. USA Today reported, “Russian cats are the latest to be banned from international competitions after Ukraine invasion.”
In Charlotte, North Carolina, a deli replaced Russian dressing with Ukraine dressing. The deli owner said, “It tastes just like our old dressing, without the notable hints of genocide.”
What I remember most is this from the comments on my post: “Love all these people who want war and assassinate this and that. I did three deployments to the gulf, one to the Red Sea, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom and everything in between. Been in the Black Sea as well. When you’ve been there and done that, and I have in spades, then you can talk shit. Until then, get a clue. We have zero business getting into this in any way shape or form.”
