Sunday Talks – Maria Bartiromo Discusses North Korea With John Bolton…

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the latest stunning announcements from North Korea.  The mustache aligns with those who say the talks between Kim Jong-un and President Trump should begin ASAP to see if the DPRK is really serious about denuclearizing the Korean peninsular.

    I think the important point to take from this is that the NorKs are very poor and will sell to anyone willing to spend! There is the real reason to fear the NorKs! I have doubts that they could successfully launch an attack on the U.S. and be successful. Their selling that technology to 3rd world countries is the concern here!

    It is the threat of trade tariffs against China that has Kim coming to the table, at the behest of his Chinese master (Xi).

    Fact patterns.

    First US president in history to impose tariffs against Chinese steel and viola! All of a sudden Kim wants to talk.

    So obvious. China just blinked.

    That was a good interview, and Maria did a nice job as always, and I believe Bolton is correct in stating this will either be a very agreement, or no agreement at all. Trump isn’t going to tolerate stalling.

      Yes Maria did a good job. But I question anything Bolton says. He wants to continue with the failed Bush/Obama approach. I’m sure he had a conniption fit when he heard Donald Trump was going to talk with Kim Jung Un. Bolton is one of those who wants to keep us in a continual, perpetual state of war and he can’t stand it that we have a President who doesn’t want to do that.

        I believe Bolton was interviewed for Secretary of State position from Trump Tower; they made quite a to-do of it on FBN. Obviously, he was not tapped for the job and he seems to have become more and more irritable as the Trump administration has rolled on making decisions without his input.

        I’m like spren, though .. Bolton has absolutely nothing new to impart on any subject and I usually switch channels when I see he is coming on.

        Agreed. And those citing the Tucker Carlson interview as “proof that Bolton is a war-monger” are not paying any more attention to what Bolton said than Tucker did.

        I was very disappointed in Tucker, as he continually interrupted and tried to force his agenda onto the interview. And frankly, I agree with Bolton, that Tucker’s analysis is simple-minded…here at 4:00

        The Middle East is a complicated place, and Bolton explains something that too few understand- how Iran has been sponsoring terrorism by BOTH the Sunni and Shia, as the banker, for decades. Look at how Iran sponsored the shia militia in Iraq that spent more time blowing up our soldiers than they did fighting Saddam’s tribal gangbangers in Tikrit.
        And how Iran effectively took over the “democracy” that Bush installed and Obama walked away from, claiming he couldn’t get a Status of Forces agreement.

        Its the reason Iran is considered the Number One state sponsor in the ME, and when you consider that Obama gave the Mad Mullahs $1.6T in cash, in a hopeful gesture for vague promises on nukes, you realize just how badly we were taken, or worse- in collusion (see Valery Jarrets family connections in Syria and Iran, and Huma’s MB connections)

        and how much evil has since been done with that secret side agreement money-
        including paying for the Revolutionary Guard to arm up, and extend their influence boots on the ground in Syria, doubling up on deliveries to Hezbollah in Lebanon, and finishing up on the short and long-term ICBMs programs that threaten not only Israel, but also Europe. The Mad Mullahs are armed and ready to go…and we have been missing in action for the last 9 years, essentially, wasting time and money in Obama’s “Good War” in Afghanistan, while walking away from the strategic basing in Bush’s Bad War, that we won, in Iraq.

      With nothing but respect for Tucker, and not to defend Bolton, as he doesn’t need it- I thought Tucker embarrassed himself, badly.

      Whatever one might impute to Bolton’s motives, the guy has been there done that, and if the rumor that Bartiromo floated at the end- that Bolton *might* be offered the National Security Advisor job (what Susan Rice did for Obama), then I’d suggest that’s a natural fit- policy and personality-wise.

      I have great respect for Pompeo at CIA, and wonder who will follow Admiral Rogers at NSA. We know we have a lot to get to the bottom of at FBI, and Director Wray leaves much to be desired, so you want a straight shooter with no-BS attitude by your side with the experience in DC to call a spade a spade (which seems to be McMasters problem).

    I used to really like “the mustache” but he has become so over-saturated in his appearances, and they are always so predictable. He’s been beating the war drums so long it is getting very tiring.

    The Norks have done this posturing before and played every previous president, so I am not setting any high expectations for obtaining a significant agreement from them. But I am very confident that Trump will not allow himself to be played. He’s not going to remove any sanctions, or extend any benefits without getting exactly what he wants. So with that in mind, I see nothing to lose by having this meeting, and everything to gain.

      “The Norks have done this posturing before and played every previous president”

      If one takes the time to just read what Sundance put together concerning the Asian trip, one will realize that PDJT is in a position of strength that no other President has had for dealing with the PRNK. This is due to his VSG “thinking outside the box’ and NOT going with “the way it has always been done” mentality.

      Most of his critics have not read Sundance’s summary, so they are pretty much commenting in the dark and trying to come up with something while in front of a camera. These pitiful excuses for TV pundits derided him as being “unsuited for the Presidency” because he had “no foreign policy experience”. Meanwhile he keeps their heads spinning…

      I guess doing business deals all around the world for decades does not count in their tattered, decrepit “Diplomacy” textbook. Their textbook needs to be discarded and a new one written by someone watching PDJT at work to MAGA.

      The only excuse they seem to come up with (that I have heard) is that “Supreme Leader” is just using this as a photo op to gain stature and recognition. The facts speak otherwise – he does not have a choice, if he has any inkling for his own survival.

        Nay… Our dear president recognizes there IS NO BOX, unless you build one to limit yourself. His thinking strikes me as blue sky and open horizon. Also, you can approach things from two perspectives: start with the impossible, or start with blank paper looking at the blue sky and open horizon in which the potential is endless…

        These truly are fascinating times…

President Trump should issue a National Security Trade Proclamation DESIGNATES China as a National-Security Trade Threat, REQUIRES the SALE of all Chinese stakes in American Manufacturing, Supply Chain and Technology Companies [National-Security Industries] within 24 months, and PROHIBITS ALL FUTURE CHINESE INVESTMENTS in America.

    • Until China ELIMINATES Aluminum and Steel Exports due to their cheating.
    • Until China pays REPARATIONS to the U.S. Government for all Technology thefts.
    • Until China TERMINATES all cyber interference and hacking with any American entity.
    • Until America has entered into a new Bilateral Trade Agreement that DEFINES Annual Reductions in China’s Trade Surplus under an AGREED 5-Year Plan to eliminate it completely.
    • Until China has REVERSED the first 20% of its Trade Surplus with America under the above Plan.

    The Commerce Department will designate the sequence and timing of these sales.

    Chinese Investment in America’s NON-National Security Industries will be REAUTHORIZED when President Trump proclaims that China’s actions for International Trade and Relations reflect that it has corrected past transgressions and no longer presents a National Security Threat, based on:

    • U.S. Government certification of China’s 100% Compliance with the above requirements.
    • U.S. Government certification that China’s client state North Korea has been denuclearized and no longer poses a threat to America or our allies.

      Good luck with investors for American Globalist Companies in bed with China:
      • Those who continue China JVs will look like China co-conspirators against American National Security.
      • They’ll also be inviting Chinese takeovers, losing their investments and any IP accessed through Chinese management embeds, Chinese IT service providers and facilities operating in China.

      Most American companies who care about preserving our National Security will need to divest their 50-50+ JVs with Chinese [government-sponsored] Partners.

      Those that don’t won’t be worth defending!

    The difference now, as opposed to Hussein / Bush / Clinton, is that the sanctions are being enforced.

    And the reason they are being enforced is because unlike Traitor 42, Traitor 43 and Traitor 44, they are not for public show, while treason is committed out of public view.

    The difference is that this administration is serious.

    Strange people don’t appreciate the effect economic sanctions and political isolation have on a country. NK has a huge burocracy, a huge military and therefore a very vulnerable economy. And as PDJT has made it clear to China that he will not accept a nuclear NK even China may have come to the conclusion that NK is more a liability than a helpful playing card. NK has become a thorn in China’s side. Kissinger was even talking about a deal on unification with the possibility of China agreeing to it. So maybe the deal is already made.
    Funny how some pundits can only think in terms of a military option.

    Mr Bolton is at one end of the so-called experts/pundits sliding scale and Mr Clapper at the other end relative to their expressed opinions on ‘what should be done?”

    The UNSCR and US bilateral sanctions are working (with the exception of some wobblies by China and Russia) and are affecting 90% of NK’s exports.

    “Harsh international sanctions are weakening the North Korean economy in an unprecedented way, according to economists.”
    “North Korean people’s purchasing power and industrial production will dwindle significantly from the second half of this year,”

    Also “depleting foreign reserves from the import-export imbalance. NK’s total exports are only ~$2 bil after low-margin tolling is excluded & 80% could be blocked. UNSC 2371 alone was thought to be sufficient to collapse regime”

    http://english.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2018/03/06/2018030601196.html

    There are also reports that Kim can’t feed his army according to Prof Ahn, and only given one meal per day. This comes under what NK calls ‘internal risk management’. That is also why the news of a forthcoming summit was not publicized in NK. Isolation and the anti-American propaganda would rent holes in the fabric of propaganda keeping KJU’s dynasty afloat.

    Mr Bolton visited the WH just prior to the South Korean delegation visit and announcements, leading the MSM to start squealing that H R McMaster would be given the boot for Bolton.

    Except, as reported in the Korean press, “The statement that Chung read was drafted by both him and US NSA HR McMaster. Seems like it’s no accident Chung referred to McMaster as “my good friend.” And the claims seems to be true: Chung is said to have dropped by Mac’s house in the past to sip a glass of wine with him”.

    President Moon also requested that the planned summit scheduled at the end of April with NK be allowed to proceed before any meeting with President Trump. This is important to setting the parameters for any talks and sussing out what KJU’s positions and credibility are. If the summit is a failure then the ‘talks’ between the President and KJU will not take place.

    US Stealth bombers are winging their way to Guam and the military build up is exceptional. KJU thought his missiles and nukes gave him deterrence, but have had the exact opposite effect, bringing the full might of the US military to his doorstep.

He would indeed be better on MSNBC, with his commentary on Russia he might get his own show. MSNBC and CNN will bring up Russia as much as they possibly can to take a shot at Donald Trump.
