Can This Be True? Trump Ties With ‘Unnamed Socialist’

In its matchups of Trump versus Democratic candidates, a recent poll asked people to choose between the president and an unnamed “Democratic candidate who you regard as a socialist.” The result: A tie. Trump, 46%; Socialist, 46%. Among likely voters, the split was Trump 49%, unnamed socialist 43%.

Far-Left Billionaire Whacko Tom Steyer Enters Democrat Primary

The Democratic Party wisemen in Washington can’t be happy with Tom Steyer’s announcement because it will be that much harder for them to move to the center for the November election with Steyer pushing the other Democrats even further to the Left on impeachment, global warming and abortion, while ramping-up the anti-free market rhetoric.

Eric Swalwell Nukes His Campaign For President

Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Far-Left California Democrat Congressman who famously reminded gun owners that the government has nuclear weapons should they choose to resist his gun confiscation schemes, is abandoning his presidential campaign. But that doesn’t mean Democrats will abandon their plans to try to confiscate your guns should they ever obtain the power to do so.

The Trump-Kim flattery of convenience

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The president’s diplomacy was not nothing. New North Korean nuclear tests are probably suspended, at least for now. Mr. Kim no doubt thinks he’s got the president’s number, but he wouldn’t take the risk of upsetting the detente, if detente is what it is, by exploding some of his test bombs until he sees what diplomacy can do. But a birthday greeting and a walk of a few steps into the dark place do not make a “great relationship.” What the president has forged — and it’s no small thing — is an acquaintance of convenience with a brutal tyrant. It can be a useful acquaintance as long as the president keeps in mind what it is, not what he wants it to be.

Trump proves critics wrong as he advances his North Korea policy with Kim meeting

The talks could easily stall or fail again. Trump’s negotiators also know that given North Korea’s long record of violating prior agreements, a new agreement will have to be ironclad. with extremely strong verification provisions. Perhaps Kim will never choose to walk through that door. But perhaps the confidence-building that President Trump has initiated with his personal diplomacy will convince Kim to make a denuclearization deal that formally ends hostilities and allows North Korea to join the community of nations. All Americans should hope President Trump succeeds, because his success in this important endeavor would enhance U.S. national security.

Democrats Hate It When Peace Breaks Out

Trump as a successful peacemaker on the Korean Peninsula does not help the Democrats defeat him in the 2020 election, so the Democrats and their media allies have suddenly become adverse to peace with North Korea and prefer what was known during the Cold War as brinksmanship or a reversion to the failed policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

“A Completely Ludicrous Quote” Gets Treated As Real News

We agree with President Trump, there is a huge difference between a mistake of fact and the reporting of social media comments that today’s “journalists” treat as news and report without vetting. Some system of holding those who promulgate, and often profit from fake news needs to be found.

Donald Trump, The Peace President

Whether President Trump’s approach of dangling peace and prosperity in front of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will achieve long-term peace remains to be seen, but it is certain that over the past 50-years the foreign policy establishment’s efforts in Korea have failed, where Trump has stopped the missile launches and nuclear tests. Americans should give peace, and President Trump a chance.

Trump should talk to Kim Jong Un, but with a stopwatch and conditions

Editors, Washington Examiner

Ultimately, as we say, we are not optimistic that talks will bring about any durable success, nor even that Kim Jong Un would join them constructively. But we also believe that peace demands every practical effort. Time is not on America’s side, but the balance of power is. Trump should talk to Kim and judge the North Korean leader by how he responds.

Bandow: Pyongyang Remembers Libya

It never was likely that North Korea would yield up its nuclear weapons. But the Obama administration’s Libyan misadventure makes that prospect even less likely.
