Breaking: Chairman Xi Jinping Special Envoy to Visit DPRK Friday…

Chairman Xi is sending his CPC special envoy, Song Tao, to North Korea.

Song Tao, special envoy of General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Xi Jinping, will leave for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday.  (Story Here)

This is President/Chairman Xi Jinping, now fully empowered by the communist party in Beijing, sending the party apparatus to talk to Kim Jong-un.  Previously these instructions would have come from Beijing’s old guard.  However, Chairman Xi now commands all power over the communist government; he doesn’t need their approval any longer.

Remember, Beijing quietly removed the 71-year-old veteran diplomat, Wu Dawei, from the position of negotiator toward the DPRK, and replaced him with 58-year-old Kong Xuanyou back in August.

Kong Xuanyou is a long time Chinese diplomat in charge of Asian affairs and he speaks Korean.  He is positioned to lead the Chinese negotiations with the DPRK.  Kong is the name we need to look for AFTER emissary Song Tao delivers the communist message to Kim Jong-un of North Korea.

            Political hit job and idiots who do not understand the science of matching the color. Matching the color of the inks under one light does NOT mean the color matches under different lighting.

            It is called a metameric match and it drives color chemists NUTS!
            You can get a really good match under say, incandescent lights — but they don’t match under fluorescent light or daylight OR THE CNN STILL CAMERA FLASH.
            I think that is the OOPS that we are seeing here.

            “Metamerism (color) In colorimetry, metamerism is a perceived matching of the colors that, based on differences in spectral power distribution, do not actually match. Colors that match this way are called metamers.”

Hey, that trick was tried on Trump and failed badly. They didn’t attack Moore while on the bench, did they? No, let’s start rumors so he won’t get voted in and we win again. Really? Democrats need a checkup from the neck up because they are losing it mentally big time. The Alabamans will vote in Moore even more now because they are sick of being calling stupid southerners if they don’t vote the way democrats want. I still like Rush as he is right many, many times but not always right. SD has made a lot of us really informed each and every day! Now, Congress needs to stop pushing Moore down since they have spent some $15 million in payouts to those sexually harassed in Congress so they are hypocrites. I also like the Canada Press for good information. Conservatives? Where are they because they have done more damage than good. I call myself an independent and for America and not always voting in garbage to Congress. Anyone that has 2 terms need never be re-elected and we need to truly and deeply vet candidates and make them understand they work for us and not outsiders and will lose their position if that happens even once! Time to remove a lot of department positions in Congress letting members them they are great – ie, intelligence, etc. Most are old foggies and they always in both houses protect themselves as they are the 2 Parties in 1!

              Either way. The rest of us have just recently learned what everyone in Gadsden already knew in the 1980s: 30-year-old Moore was cruising for a high school sweetheart. Moore’s response is to hide behind his wife’s skirt, and moralize about marriage.

              Just go home, Moore.

        A few months ago CTH made a pretty significant find in the Russiagate mess, big enough for the national media to pick up on… might have been the Farkas fiasco but I can’t be 100% sure. Whatever it was Rush talked about the story for several days but never the named the source and was reluctant to fully support CTH’s interpretation/analysis until other corporate media began to get behind it. And these are the only two instances where it’s been pretty evident Rush has used research from here.

        Anyways, this looks like a positive development… another one of those “magic wand” moments. Let’s hope that it is.

            Problem I have with Rush is that he isn’t Red Pilling that vast audience of his. He’s not explaining clearly enough that what the Uniparty is and what’s it’s all about. He stills preaches that Dem/Rep and liberal/conservative mantra too much to suit me.

            He does give a glimpse into the underbelly every once in a while but he always seems to pull back before he gets totally down the hole. That could be because of what Sundance has outlined previously or does he think once people are totally Red Pilled he won’t be needed any longer. 😀

    Sundance I think there’s real merit to your analysis that China does nothing unless that thing is potentially beneficial to China. Given the manner in which China has structured their economy using central banking tactics, a favorable trade imbalance, and so on, I think President Trump has likely given China an offer they can’t refuse.

    Economically war in North Korea is a no-win situation for the entire region and everyone except North Korea (who has basically almost nothing to lose at this point) realizes it. I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump gave Xi a special offer that he is also to deliver to Kim jong-Un.

    I heard chatter this morning on the news radio that Trump surmised that he and Kim could “be friends”. As ridiculous as that sounds North Korea’s puny economy could be supercharged if amicable trade deals could be struck – and trade is the stuff of peace.

    Back to the idea that China doesn’t act unless it’s good for China – I think Trump is the first man who has ever been able to convince China that to not act in the United State’s interests would be bad for China – and thereby lay out a path toward a resolution of an impossible situation.

      Well, the collapsing test site mountain and nuclear fall out is a big issue to China (and could potentially derail Xi’s environmental platform and even his reign). Also, APEC and ASEAN member states are pointing fingers at China to deal with the issue (a bit of P45 magic). The sanctions, by all accounts are really squeezing Kim’s regime and their lack of FEC is biting hard, so much so there are reports that their Army and government are squeezing the population for ‘loyalty payments’ and the folks are grumbling. Coupled with a bad harvest, limited food imports and it is the 1990s famine redux.

Trump’s genius is to create a situation that will benefit the U.S. following the same dictum and then sell that new reality the competing countries by showing how it can work for them as well. His negotiation style is that of Teddy Roosevelt in terms of speaking softly while holding the big stick.

    This visit may achieve several things. Mr Song might lay out clearly China’s position and support (backed by Russia and Pres Moon) for the double freeze (this is not the US position, nor Japan’s). He will also warn Kim that the US and other nations are and will continue to ramp up sanctions and that sending informal envoys to the talks scheduled in December is a prudent move.

        I just want to get something straight. There is no ‘old guard’ anymore. They have been arrested, retired, or deprived of their former positions at the national party level, the provincial level, and in the PLA also. The numbers are staggering. You just need to see the roster of the 19th Party Congress to know this has happened. They have all lost their standing and replaced by Chairman Xi men. Also companies, private or SOEs and all educational institutions now have again (not seen since the GPCR) opened Party monitoring offices to make sure of compliance to Party goals and censorship.

          In any case, Xi Jinping, despite his genial smile, good English, and familiarity with the United States, is no reforming liberal. Shortly after assuming the presidency, he took all the members of his politburo with him to the bizarre museum the Party has built in Tiananmen Square – the museum of national humiliation and revival. He pointed out to them the exhibits showing the arrival of the Jesuits via Macao in the sixteenth century and how this had been the beginning of the infiltration and humiliation of China by the West. He pointed out the exhibits showing the Japanese invasions of China and making the unfounded assertion that the Japanese were defeated by the Communist Party with a little help from “good” Nationalist generals. The Americans, he said, then became the enemy. “Against this external enemy,” he told China’s inner group of top leaders, “we must stick together.” […]”

            Interesting information in both Combs and A2’s comments which – despite Trump’s remarkable efforts – warrant a skeptical eye directed towards the far East. The identities mentioned, sound too alien/foreign and are – for me – difficult to retain and visualize without a map or diagram. But that’s just me.
            Even so, my first reading of Sundance’s lucid and focused interpretation of events, my gut reaction was quite different. Going back to the video with Trump’s grand-daughter singing and reciting Chinese poetry, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping was indeed smiling, politely, but indirectly focused since her focus shifted to discussion which took place between her and those to her left nearly the entire time. The unprecedented official ceremonial welcome to Trump and Melania at the Great Hall of the People was moving yet contradicts my gut which suggests this special envoy’s visit to the DPRK will address Trump as ‘a concern to deal with’ rather than as a potential ally seeking mutual benefit which to embrace.

    China can put the kibosh on NK’s nuclear/missile program, but China will want something big in return: formal recognition of their increased status as a Pacific and global power. The way to do this is to agree to make the two Koreas a unified, non-allied, non-nuclear state, whose independence will be guaranteed by both the US and China (and agreed to by the other nations in the region, especially Japan). This will preserve the buffer China wants between its sphere of influence and ours, and make the buffer larger and more permanent. It will also remove the inherently unstable Kim family from the peninsula (send Kim to a villa in Switzerland).

    The only other item on China’s most-fervently-desired wishlist is Taiwan. But that’s a non-starter, though of course we couldn’t stop China from taking it without a major war. Fear of that holds China off—for now.

    I would take it a step further and argue that they have blown out most of Hollywood in order to specifically slam Moore and severely hurt Trump’s position. I believe that they are that desperate and deranged that they would make such sacrifices to get what they want. Why else would the Weinstein stuff come out right now? It hasn’t in decades…

    Sundance: It looks like Big Panda is following the script you outlined about how the DPRK will denuclearize. Wow. Just wow.
