Well it sure has been interesting to witness the various ways and means the Globalist Media has gone about interpreting what the latest President Trump’s ‘Art of the Deal’ move against China really, really – but REALLY – means. Yesterday was pleasantly funny to watch as we now have a real leader in the White House who knows how to negotiate.
The Big Deep State MSM had a particularly tough day as this was NOT in their 4:00 am Operation Mockingbird talking points.
Didn’t take long however, for the Leftist DemoMarxist lies to start piling up in an avalanche of disclosures and truths being revealed (BTW, does anybody else but me remember Telegrapher-in-Chief OBO the Clown Prince and his budget debt ‘Don’t call my bluff’ threat to the GOP in July 2011?). Bet that made them all go run and hide under the table in a hurry. Like that globalist Obama ‘Red Line in the Sand’ in Syria which meant absolutely nothing.
But I digress …
What was on display yesterday was the result of the classic negotiating tactic Trump has successfully used many times over and which he has covered and shared in his books and media appearances. These days, he’s simply transferred the tactic to globalist governance. Basically, President Trump is telling Kim (and the Chinese) that he is not Obama and that his threat to cancel is not intimidating him. You are threatening to cancel? Take that – POW! Now, Kim has to come back in a position weaker than he was in before. To say nothing of where it leaves Xi Jinping.
Which obviously was lost on the idiocy of whatever Nancy Pelosi is using for a mind these days. Before getting into the adult meat of the matter, just take a look and listen to see what this alzheimer’s excuse for leadership has to say on the actions of a master globalist negotiator…
POW! And another one bites the dust! Let’s begin on the adult studies now with ‘sundance’ over at Conservative Treehouse and his take on globalist matters…
The MSM is insufferable in their intentional disconnect of the dynamic behind the North Korean denuclearization talks. It was Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping who brought the DPRK to the table; and it was Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping who pushed North Korea away from the table in their manipulative efforts to extract trade concessions. Every other review of the geopolitical gamesmanship is chaff and countermeasures.
U.S. President Trump is holding massive steel and aluminum tariffs as an economic sword of Damocles over the head of Beijing during ongoing trade negotiations. Chairman Xi sought to increase his own leverage by pulling North Korea’s Chairman Kim Jong-un away from bilateral peace and denuclearization talks. However, POTUS Trump responded to the Beijing power-play by announcing a Section 232 trade review over the entire auto-industry; and then bolstered his counter-move by cancelling talks with Kim Jong-un.
Red Dragon didn’t expect President Trump to respond so effectively to the customary schemes notoriously famous in any Chinese negotiation encounter. I really believe Chairman Xi underestimates how adept POTUS Trump is at cutting through the obfuscation and obtuse moves.
President Trump simply doesn’t operate in the land of traditional diplomatic discomfort… he doesn’t have any inclination to play these insufferable games.
Within minutes of President Trump withdrawing from the June 12th summit, Beijing realized all of their trade leverage was just wiped out. Playing deceptive panda isn’t going to work this time.
(Via AP) – North Korea says it is still willing to sit down for talks with the United States “at any time, at any format” after President Donald Trump abruptly canceled his planned summit with Kim Jong Un.
Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan issued a statement Friday saying North Korea is “willing to give the U.S. time and opportunities” to reconsider talks.

President Trump, smart as he is, has mastered Akido, using your opponents strength/force to redirect it to your opponent without exerting your own strength, ie a Japanese form of self-defense and martial art that uses locks, holds, throws, and the opponent’s own movements.
(PS – Another perfect example was illustrated in the Pelosi clip – Bravo President Trump – MAGA!)
Calling Trump “crude and vulgar” mistakes his nature, commits an error crude-and-vulgar in itself. Among much else, our President is a “happy warrior” reveling in give-and-take, choosing battles wisely, a master showman with a deep-seated sense of humor, embracing the absurd.
Laugh if you will, but what was said of Charles Dickens applies to Trump: He is “generously angry”, viewing humanity’s gallery-of-grotesques with bemused sympathy approaching awe. As Christ declared in the Sermon on the Mount, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” ~ Matthew 5:6
Thomas Lifson and Rick Moran in American Digest and their take on a globalist Donald Trump…
Donald Trump once again proved that he is a president like none of his predecessors, writing a letter to Kim Jong-un this morning canceling their planned upcoming June 12 summit. In it he blames “the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement” for the cancelation, which he describes as “for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world.”
The letter blows both hot and cold, with Trump expressing his appreciation to Kim for his “time, patience and effort” and for “the release of the hostages,” which he calls a “beautiful gesture and very much appreciated.” Yet, in the same letter, he speaks of the nuclear capabilities of the United States, which he calls “so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never be used.”
