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.

Israel, the Risk Obama Ignored:

Israel Reminds the World of the Risk the Obama Administration Chose to Ignore! It is absolutely the case that Iran had long ago dedicated its resources toward the development and deployment of nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capabilities. Most conspicuously in 2003 and 2004, while Rouhani was Iran’s Chief Negotiator, he acknowledged that they’d perfected the process for creating weapons grade material and well before the signing of the Nuclear Deal the Iranians had demonstrated their ability to move along and through the various processes necessary to produce a deliverable device. What remains true, as it was at the inception of the Nuclear Deal as it remains now, is that Iran continues to be weapons-capable, only now they are able to refine the ballistic delivery system openly and with funding provided by the U.S. and Russia has successfully used both the stupidity and hubris of Obama and Clinton-Kerry to leverage their relationship with China to their optimal advantage.

Mueller Indictment Exposes Widespread Abuse

Mueller Indictment Exposes Widespread Abuse by Political Operatives at all levels of Federal Government. While the U.S. has spent 100s of Billions of Dollars in covert operations, most recently $200 Million by Obama in his efforts to defeat Netanyahu and $5 Billion to overthrow the Ukrainian Government, we also know that what Hillary for President couldn’t accomplish with $1.4 Billion, we’re told Russia, apparently, accomplished for a mere $100K. There’s something quite absurd about this entire “Russian Collusion” scheme; anyone that follows strategic processing, counter intelligence routines, military tactics etc. understands and quickly recognizes the importance of insurgent efforts and the value of asymmetrical warfare and all the more reason to find it odd that the “Russian Collusion”, over a year on and still not a scintilla of evidence supporting the claim, continues to be a form of force-fed poisoning. Let’s face it, no secret is safe in Washington and certainly nothing of any significance would rise to the level of so sacred that it would survive a political advantage or two. The Mueller Indictment(s) of Russian Nationals would, on face value alone, justify a hearty chuckle by the Russians and frankly, looking at the manner in which individuals such as Adam Schiff powder their political façade with their cranky repartee, it occurs to me that we might reconsider the practice of Tar & Feathering. Until or unless Team Trump can come up with a bigger stick, one that the Public will side with, the game will play on. Remember, if Mueller exonerates Trump it will be a tacit confession that the hunt was a scam.

Subservient State; Democracy Thrives

Democracies thrive when the State is subservient to the People; once the State’s first choice is to save itself you know it has failed. The process requires an enduring cast of characters and there have been many colorful characters over the decades wearing at the core of this Nation’s structural order however let’s consider, for now, the most prominent, our chief caricatures, the preeminent fixtures of the statists, the most recognizable being none other than John McCain and, more and more frequently, the spit-bucket man himself, California’s Massachusetts-born carpet bagger, Adam Schiff. The character of a People is evidenced by the actions of its Government, the actions by those who hold the Peoples trust; this is a most humbling measure!

The Drama that is DACA

The Drama that is DACA and the Dishonest-Truths of those who sell it! A few thoughts to consider:

1. The “We are a nation of immigrants” is one of those statements that at first blush sounds so poignant and relevant, a complimentary monument to the Nation’s structure and its people who left everything with the hope of becoming a part of a most powerful promise occurring never intending or hoping to become separate and apart from it. There was a time when the richness of the bond caused it to be integral to the promise, wrapped in and indistinguishable from the body of absolute truths so much so that you intuitively understood that objection to its richness was unthinkable; not anymore.
