North Korea: A Strategic Change?

No matter how one spins the event occurring in Singapore the facts remain that the Administration has been working on the Korean Peninsula issue since day one; a truly monumental effort occurring (largely) behind the scenes. Unlike many public figures who live off of the lift from ornamental blustering Mr. Trump understood the risks had serious consequences. The plan is total De-Nuclearization through an incremental process which will take several years to materialize; however the beginning is at hand with the potential for an entirely different future available to Kim Jong Un and those within reach of a nuclear warhead. For the outcome to meet or be no less equal to the promise imbedded within the intentions of the scripted agreement, Kim is going to have to make a strategic change in his planning; otherwise the U.S. will be the least of his worries. There is one facet of this whole affair that remains unresolved and I’m speaking specifically of China and two issues that remain on my unresolved list: (1) Why is China seemingly indifferent to U.S. direct action on the Korean peninsula particularly when one would expect them to oppose a more robust U.S. presence. And, (2) What is China’s preference? A Korean peninsula unified by the South or a U.S. Security Guaranteed N. Korea where the current leadership is secured for (only) Kim’s lifetime? For those who follow my work/analysis I have been very clear on the issue of Nuclear Arms and the importance of their global destruction; these reports from Singapore are very good news and Mr. Trump, Mr. Pompeo, Ms. Hailey and their staff are to be congratulated. For Kim Jong Un, with a glimpse of what he faces in his home country, he will need a great deal of resolve if these events are to foretell a strategic change.

G7:Meeting and Understanding the Structure of Generational Waste

Yes of course! Merkel (Germany), Macron (France) and Trudeau (Canada) should be unsettled by President Trump wanting to carve-out a new trade structure, after all, since the end of World War II, the U.S. has bent-over backwards to resuscitate these Post-War Economies. The problem is that although the injection of inflationary monetary policies may have awakened their capabilities it will never, on its own, keep them alive and these Heads of State, and I’m speaking specifically of the EU and Canada, need the U.S. to help keep their social experiments, their Corporate Elite afloat. The Opposition-Press, by its insistence that the President has somehow offended our Allies, has once again injected its signature hyperbole into an issue it is ill prepared to intelligently discuss, for now however let’s leave it at this: One must understand that the public friction demonstrated by Ms. Merkel and Mr. Trudeau is not over national (public) interests but Corporate Financial/Economic Interests. In effect what the global-elite has accomplished is to have imbedded a fiat monetary policy concealing within it an incrementally expanding global trade policy built on the theory of comparative-advantage, the idea that some States perform certain things/tasks more effectively than others, ignoring the fact that this notion on its own serves to imbalance the equation whilst ignoring the fact that there are certain components of the “viable trade equation” that must ultimately achieve balance if they are to work; as it is (presently) we just blow them up and call it a recession/depression. Think of it this way: the U.S. may have an exemplary capacity for consuming things however for the scheme to work if it must also have a self-multiplying capacity to offset the drain, the ability to produce wealth from which it draws funds from to pay for its consumption, it doesn’t of course and therein lies the problem. In short order, nothing you are told that works the way it should works at all!
