Following Trump Meeting With Xi Jinping U.S.S. Carl Vinson Moves Toward N Korea…

We are seeing a lot of media reports about the U.S.S. Carl Vinson carrier group being re-routed back toward North Korea.

However, stunningly, what we are not seeing is any media pointing out the specific conversation between President Trump and President Xi Jinping about North Korea (as shared by Secretary T-Rex).

First, the latest media report via Reuters:

A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday, as concerns grow about North Korea’s advancing weapons program.

Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range.

The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity. (link)

It is critical to consider the decision to reposition the Navy strike group against the backdrop of President Trump and President Xi’s meeting only 24 hours earlier.

From the debrief by Secretary T-Rex (emphasis mine):

[…]  I think President Xi, from their part, shared the view that this has reached a very serious stage in terms of the advancement of North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.

They discussed the challenges that introduces for both countries, but there’s a real commitment that we work together to see if this cannot be resolved in a peaceful way.

But in order for that to happen, North Korea’s posture has to change before there’s any basis for dialogue or discussions.

President Trump indicated to President Xi that he welcomed any ideas that President Xi and China might have as to other actions we could take and that we would be happy to work with them, but we understand it creates unique problems for themand challenges and that we would, and are, prepared to chart our own course if this is something China is just unable to coordinate with us.

(link to debrief statements)

I don’t know how everyone else would be interpreting that specific line of commentary from T-Rex; but it sure seems to me that President Trump asked, in a very diplomatic way, for the nod from Xi Jinping to take unilateral action if needed.  And, not wanting to compromise their relationship with N-Korea, yet understanding the stupid behavior of their adolescent-minded neighbor, China gave tacit permission therein.

What say you?

    In January of this year, our host and #1 Golden Nugget Educator wrote an excellent analysis of this scenario, predicting that President Trump would “suggest” (via trade and economic discussions) that China might want to be a little more stern with their neighbor.

    Worth backtracking to read it if you haven’t already. (the links embedded in the article actually go back to the NH debate)

    I would hazard a guess that we know where most, if not all of N. Korea’s weapons, missle silos and nukes are stored via. Spy drones. I think I read somewhere that our military has drones the size of bees…virtually undetectable.

  3. IMHO Trumps did not ask for Xi’s permission to act against N Korea. I believe he asked XI to act ( some time ago) and when China failed to do so. Trump decided it’s time to flex our military might in that part of the world.

    Want to build manmade islands and turn them into military bases? I don’t THINK SO! Won’t reel in N Korea? WE will! Don’t believe it? Ask Assad what HE thinks!

        T-Rex explained the missiles were not aimed at the runways. Our leaders knew the runways were reinforced and missile warheads would be too light. Instead they targeted the aircraft shelters, fueling facilities and other infrastructure. Those targets were effectively destroyed. They happened to get a few aircraft as a bonus. They can land planes on the runways, but not use it as an effective offensive base.

        By the way, you will note they were VERY careful not to hit the storage facilities for the poison gas. Exploding a tank of nerve gas would be catastrophic.

        They hit what they planned to hit … from hundreds of miles away … in the dark. Good shootin’, Tex!

        The message was more about ‘We will shoot and shoot instantly’ – that speaks volumes to the bad guys. If we wanted to hit his palaces – or his bunkers – we could do that too. This strike was not about that.

    Since he asked: I interpret that Sundance is saying Trump and Xi Jinping are playing “good cop/bad cop.” China is on it’s last nerve with Korea, but can’t get them to move. Trump is getting right into their face and putting a little fear of the Lord into them. Maybe Korea is wondering if Trump is crazy or bold enough to pull the trigger. He just bombed Syria, after all.

    Now China can come in and say, “See? We told you. Are you willing to listen to us now, and let us help you with your problem?” They have more leverage to get Korea to do what they want them to do. Win – Win for both China and the US. The world, really, because if it works out, the world got a little bit more safe and stable.

    That’s my interpretation of what Sundance said. Do I think it’s true? Based on what I know about Trump character, hindsight, yada yada, it has the ring of truth to it, Yes, I think it’s true. THINK but do not KNOW.

      “China… can’t get them to move.”

      I don’t think so. China controls North Korea. Without China, NK will starve to death. Trump always said that in order to make the fat boy see the light we need to persuade China that cooperation with the US is in China’s best interests. Trump said that the US holds all the cards with China because China’s economy depends on the US markets.

      On the other hand, the fat boy is a dangerous psycho…

        Norks have threatened violence and received much food, and heating oil, from the West through this extortion spanning decades. China has not been their only lifeline.

        If the above link goes through, check it out. This was shared by a Treeper weeks ago wherein I had proclaimed the NorKs lost and
        unsaveable. I encouraged it’s utter elimination.

        The video of Yeonmi Park schooled me. Chastised, I looked around more, of Yeonmi and others. All the same good Korean people I knew on the South end of the penninsula. Many people are risking their lives to discover North Koreans working and hiding in China and finding ways to get them out.

    I say that there is way too much playing out in the media, which is owned and/or controlled by globalist interests. It is extremely dangerous. Media has too much power, and we should RICO the lot of it. Foreign owned media should not be allowed to operate in the US. It is not allowed to operate in China…

    Yea I think that’s probably correct. The way our treaty with NK, China and South Korea is written up is that if North Korea is the aggressor then China goes hands off and they’re on their own. If anyone else is the aggressor then China jumps in on their side.

    I don’t think President Xi wants to help the man child at all. He’s fast becoming a liability.

    We are asserting a right to move forward independently of China. They had previously said they didn’t control what NK did, so they effectively invited others to try. Having done that, they won’t have much basis for opposing what the US might do, unless it’s disproportionate in some way.
    Not sure I believe China about their influence. As a tourist, you have to go to China first – no direct flights, so China controls that.
    If NK falls, the humanitarian crisis could be huge, since they run a police state with large concentration camps as public policy.
    It’s not as though NK would be a good citizen if not for their nuclear threats.
    The media keeps referring to them as “reclusive” as if they were just minding their own business. If only they would!

    I really hope we have some top secret defense against a satellite super EMP before we even think about kicking this hornet’s nest. All the North Korean tests to this point are consistent with this type of aysmettical attack. Just two weeks ago they said they had a weapon that could kill 90% of American’s, which just so happens to be a direct quote from our very own 2008 EMP commission’s report. Absent a top secret defense there is a satellite launch trajectory from North Korea that will place an EMP at the right altitude and location over the US in less than one orbit that completely by passes publically known defense systems.

    “What say you?” That Pudgy is on a one-way street: personal conclusion. He cannot back down without losing face and self-respect, ergo, position. He might make a run for it. But who would take him? He is Hyman Roth cubed, and no one would believe the “retired [Head-of-State] on a pension” line. And outside NK he would be exposed to wet teams from any number of governments. No, I’d say his goose is just about home-fried. I have to assume POTUS and Xi talked in those terms and about deconfliction. So the question now, really, is: how are Koreans going to reunite their peninsula? I have no idea. Carrier strike groups do have mission capabilities other than strikes. And finally, a general observation: whereas previously (since, say, 1950) POTUSs have tolerated festering sores around the globe that have killed millions and cost trillions — and employed thousands of goatee-scratching, drunken and lascivious pundit morons — this POTUS, finally, appears willing to heal the sores so they are no more and also return the goatee-scratchers to the bottom of their cups and the solace of their sheets, where they came from and belong.

    I interpret this statement to mean PDJT allowing Pres Xi to save face if Xi is unable to successfully reign in NK via lack of action or lack of successful action; hence, PDJT will get the job done in some form or fashion, which will be announced after the fact. No, Xi will not be given years to act.

    Breaking News (had to say it just once). China is on the move.

    Special Representative of the Chinese Government for Korean Peninsula Affairs and China’s top nuclear envoy, Wu Dawei, will arrive in Seoul Monday on a five-day visit. Wu Dawei will meet with South Korea’s Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs Kim Hong-kyun to discuss cooperation between Beijing and Seoul on the issue of North Korea’s nuclear program, Yonhap reported.

    Wu will also brief all the other candidates for President.

    15 April, the anniversary of Kim Il-sung’s birth (founder of DRPK), is rumoured to be the date Kim No.3 will launch another missile. “The north Korean Foreign Ministry in a memorandum on Friday stressed that it has a legitimate right to make a resolute preemptive attack to frustrate the moves for imminent and full-phased aggression and war made by the US against it.”
