Notice the date on the deal- this was done months ago.
Wednesday, 13 June:
The dust is now settling on the historic conference in Singapore.
Gone are the streams of black limousines, the omnipresent security guards, and adoring hordes caught up in the thrill of the
moment. The cries of 'we love you, Trump', or the necks craning to see Chairman Kim, late of 'rocket man' fame and newly minted rock star.
To anyone who was there it was a heady, and positive experience.
Then there is the domestic consumption.
US media treated this event as everything from a transcendental experience (FOX) to a hastily designed scam meant to change the focus from Russian collusion (just about everyone else).
Why the disconnect? One would think possible peace on the Korean
peninsula would be welcomed by all.
The truth is it is welcomed by all; only the clinically insane would want a war between the US and North Korea just so Donald Trump could be blamed for it. They exist, thankfully small in number.
fear of Trump 'trumps' everything for his opposition.
His deconstruction of the globalist state left by his predecessor is anathema to the opposition, who expected to have the American middle class fully cowed and pliable by now. They were almost finished
with the job in 2016, and just needed to deal with the last three items:
Universal health care and global climate change- which are about income redistribution- and the nasty business of an armed middle class. They hoped to have these issues settled
completely by the end of Hillary Clinton's first term in 2020.
It is impossible to overemphasize just HOW invested the opposition was in this scenario.
Their supporters -academia and the arts, mostly- were demonstrably besides themselves when
this 'utopian vision' was sidetracked. Everyone saw the histrionics when they screamed at the sky when Trump won.
They haven't gone away, and aren't anytime soon. Nor will they change their stripes.
So, this means the bizarre dichotomy of current
reality conflicts so much with their deep desires that this reality is, and will be challenged by them. It's coming down to this:
Do you believe what CNN and others are telling you or your own lying eyes?
The same 24/7 dialectic that has occurred
since the inauguration exists; the epic battle to keep the president's negatives as high as possible has not abated nor will it. The big difference is now, instead of railing against a man they hate it's now about denial of the facts on the ground.
The situation with North Korea is substantially better than it was six short months ago. There is absolutely no doubt of this. While the details are still under wraps, what was once frightful belligerence that could kill millions is now
promises of beachside condos.
The White House produced this little film for the North Korean leaders:
Fact Number Two:
not an 'ad hoc' affair; a last minute paste up job meant to change the subject from Trump's supposed Russian connections. This was a long planned and well executed deal with a very willing partner in Kim Jong Un.
In fact, it was a
done deal TWO MONTHS AGO. This was just a public relations summit to disclose it. As far as 'Russiagate' goes, it's so much on fumes that the Mueller team is searching for any reason to drag this out.
The Russians Mueller indicted have unexpectedly
countersued, and are demanding the evidence against them be shown as disclosure. This shook the Mueller probe to it's roots, and now they are claiming they can't do this 'because the Russians can't be trusted' and will use this to meddle in the midterms.
No self respecting judge will fall for this.
At some point claiming 'national security' without showing any evidence other than 'trust us' is going to fall flat, and the obvious tactic of trying to stretch this out until the midterms will not work.
The agreement with North Korea is not only solid, in the US's (and the world's) favor, but it will also be given to congress to ratify as a treaty; not snuck past them in the dead of night like the Iran deal. It is a game changer, period.
you will hear on the opposition channels is all noise; every bit of it.
The congress is desperate for relevancy; when Schumer and company decries it for being a 'giveaway' it's more about how useless they were in it's crafting and how desperate they
are for some undeserved credit.
Same with the RINO element. The Bob Corkers of the world have been reduced to absolute forgettable status. Dogcatchers have more credibility than he and Jeff Flake and other such non entities.
It may be sad, but
As for himself, Trump would ordinarily be magnanimous and share the credit. It's his modus operandi, if you ever saw an episode of 'Celebrity Apprentice'. However, the opposition has so poisoned the well that he will allow them to stew in
their own self inflicted juices.
The Europeans don't know what to do.
The other day they railed against the president for messing around with their fat trade deals. But yesterday the heads of the EU and NATO praised Trump for the Korea deal,
as did -hold onto your hat- the 15 most liberal/left members of congress.
They wrote a letter congratulating Trump for using diplomacy rather than force to solve the crisis. These are the same people who have been screaming for the man's head since
Actions, not words. This is the Trump legacy, and so far so good...
