    I truly believe it was planned that on the day our President got us out of the Iran 🇮🇷 deal that Secretary Pompeo would head to North Korea 🇰🇵 to pickup the 3 hostages.

    As the Left, Barry, Kerry, Rhodes, Powers, Brennan, MSM etc. went crazy that our President was going to start WWIII and that North Korea 🇰🇵 would see what our President did with Iran 🇮🇷 and back away from dealing with him, the prisoners would be released. It ABSOLUTELY KILLS their talking points.

    It also reassures Americans that PDJT needs to be believed and his plan with Iran 🇮🇷 needs to be followed.

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

      Well said, Flep, and after a short victory lap on this leg of the long journey ahead, we ought to concentrate on the fact that although President Trump is in the White House, his arch-enemy Barry Obama is running an underground rebellion from his Black House, practically down the street from the White House.

      It strikes me as almost impossible that John Kerry’s usurpation of diplomatic functions, the treasonous acts of FBI/DOJ Leftists, and several other issues are not connected to the work that Obama is conducting from the Black House.

      Obama has a following in the nation’s media, and those followers will never link all the blockades set up by Leftists to make sure that Trump fails and/or loses in 2020. There is no way that these blocks are just coincidental. There is a Leftist movement afoot, and it has leaders and followers.

      Perhaps if the Mueller kangaroo investigation can be crushed, then this devisive movement led at least partially by Obama can be given the concentration needed to expose many of the connections that must exist within it.

      I’m not saying that all of the backlash aimed at Trump comes via the Black House, but I rest assured that much of it does.

      Fle, another little sneaky agreement by Obama. It was no signed treaty approved by Congress, but just something Obama did and on top of that IRAN NEVER SIGNED THIS AGREEMENT so perfectly right of Trump to withdraw from a nothing agreement. With Iran not signing it, it meant that they would do whatever they wanted and on top of this Obama in the dead of night sent in dollars and gold $1.6 billion of our money not only to Iran, but to Syria, Islam, etc. so keep the warring going on as a distraction to the ME and us. A farce from day 1 just like Obamacare! Not a treaty, and unsigned agreement by Iran and you have nothing! Thank you, Pres. Trump for moving forward no this. By the way, since Iran did not sign this little agreement with John Kerry’s assistance, Iran has probably continued to develop whatever in the nature of nuclear and has been buying parts, etc. from other countries who are complaining because they will lose this income. No values so no caring if nuclear missiles flew any where, including their own countries. Will Iran toe the mark? Who knows, but then again we didn’t think NK would come around either and hopefully the meeting between Kim and Trump will give us the results we and other countries nearby need. I do think China finally employed its leverage to let Kim know his nuclear plans are not going to be allowed so get used to it.

    This was a great interview. The left is pushing this as a disaster for NK negotiations because we seem weak and NK will not trust us to uphold our end of the ideal. Just goes to show that democrats have no clue when it comes to foreign policy. Bolton says this thinking is 180 degrees in the opposite direction. It shows NK that we will not stand idly by if they continue their nuclear programs.

    Obama, in a typical sanctimonious chiding, once again showed us that he is ignorant to reality: Here’s part of his long and windy statement:

    “Indeed, at a time when we are all rooting for diplomacy with North Korea to succeed, walking away from the JCPOA risks losing a deal that accomplishes — with Iran — the very outcome that we are pursuing with the North Koreans,” Obama said in a statement. “That is why today’s announcement is so misguided. In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next, but the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.”

    I read a comment today by John Adams at Weasel Zippers that I thought is well with mentioning at CTH. Let me copy and paste it here for you, so I don’t mess up what he said. I think it’s worth noting:

    Just can’t deal with a guy who does what he says he is going to do. If there is a strategy here, I’m going to assume that since the Iranians are dependent on North Korea for technology–both missile and bomb–the diplomatic goal is to get the NorKs to give the crap up and make it a sweet deal for them, then cut off the Iranians from the technology. Just a guess.

    This makes a great deal of sense to me, especially now and the timing and what we saw today with our President Trump saying no more to Iran.

      This game of chess that our President is playing is smart. He has these guys in weak spots and knows their blind spots.

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/05/president-trump-exits-iran-deal-boost-for-global-security/

    “The Iran deal empowered the totalitarians. Trump’s exit squeezes them.

    President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal is the greatest boost for American and global security in decades.

    If you think that is an exaggeration, then you evidently think the Obama administration’s injection of well over a hundred billion dollars — some of it in the form of cash bribes — into the coffers of the world’s leading state sponsor of anti-American terrorism was either trivial or, more delusionally, a master-stroke of statecraft.

    Of course, there’s a lot of delusion going around. After repeatedly vowing to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons (with signature “If you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance” candor), President Obama, and his trusty factotum John Kerry, made an agreement that guaranteed Iran would obtain a nuclear weapon….”

    The issue with Syria is that it’s not a Syrian but an Iran-Russia problem. On balance, it seems probable that Israeli provocateurs are setting up Assad’s incredibly vicious but not suicidal regime for U.S. destruction by simulating chemical attacks on local populations to raise Trump’s righteous ire (and more power to ‘im!).

    If this is so, Putin will make loud noises while carefully pulling back. From Teheran, trembling Shiite mullah-dullahs will incite all manner of State-sponsored guerilla-terrorist attacks from Damascus to Baghdad, but avoid providing Netanyahu with an explicit casus belli. However muted hostilities persist, as Bolton’s said for years the key will be regime change in Teheran.

    As von Clausewitz put it, “Diplomacy is war by other means” (why is this so difficult for ossified elites to comprehend?) America’s Trunp Corollary simply states: Attacks mean war; and –cutting through the “international relations” BS– SecDef Gen. Mad Dog Mattis urges, “Bring it on!”

    We need to stop referring to these things as “deals.” There is no use of the word “deal”–meaning something other than a TREATY–with foreign governments. The government has the authority to conclude only TREATIES with foreign governments. The use of “deal” and “agreement” was dishonest creation of an extra-Constitutional piece of paper that could be given force of law despite not being ratified by the Senate Under Article One of the Constitution.

    This “deal”–and all of the other “deals”– are ILLEGITIMATE, and need to be treated as such.

      You are absolutely correct. That is how Ozero with the help of little Bob Corker the idiot senator from Tennessee tried to tie American hands without a ratified treaty. I promise you Bob Corker got paid. Why are we not using the NSA against these traitors?
      Trillions at stake!

      A gentle legal correction from Lurking Lawyer. Treaties were first defined by Thomas Jefferson as first secretary of state under George Washington as ‘immutable save by mutual consent’. That definition has been legal bedrock ever since, as the Constitution itself does not define the term. Requires 2/3 Senate consent.
      Then there are Pacts. NAFTA is an example. These require congressional approval by simple majorities of both houses. They always differ from treaties by having a unilateral opt out. Trump is consideringnusing it if it cannot be renegotiated.
      Then there are executive agreements, made by the president unilaterally in three narrow areas in article 2: some elements of foreign affairs (e.g. recognizing nations and ambassadors), as commander in chief (e.g. annual joint exercises in Korea), and persuante to Article 2 section 3 to faithfully uphold the laws. Obama argued the Paris Accord was of the third kind under his interpretation of the Clean Air Act. Trump exited unilaterally.

        Immutable treaties are as dumb as dishwater.
        What do you do when circumstances change?…the smart man changes his mind. A treaty can be a contract allowed to work against US interests forever.
        Immutable is rubbish.

        The Iran “deal” does not fall under any of the exceptions and was done solely by Executive Order. Anything like it is supposed to be a treaty, and “deals” and “agreements” are not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. It is not only unconstitutional, but the idea that a foreign policy cannot survive the change of Executive was not what intended when the Treaty power was created. As we are hearing about the Iran “deal,” if we back out, it will hurt our “credibility.” So, such documents were intended to be negotiated and ratified as treaties, and are sometimes referred to as such when they are being enforced. This is what happens when the Constitution is treated as a “living” document. Housekeeping is one thing, long-term commitments are something else.

    Iran would do well to heed the solemn warning PDJT delivered during his announcement on ending this agreement, because when it comes to protecting our country, this president will give no quarter. If the Iranian Mullahs decide to get stupid over this, they may also get to know one of our president’s “little friends,” Jim Mattis, far better than they wish …and that does not end well.

    “The wheel of ka turns and the world moves on.” – Stephen King, Gunslinger

    We are again at an amazing point of history of paradigm shifts. The USA is becoming energy independent, confronting globalism head on, and standing up to bullies around the globe. The #resistance is starting to lose public support, and political support as per polling and yesterday’s primaries. The rumors of a blue wave should be dead.

    A fall political gain in Congress would only hasten the change. We still have a couple tricks in the works, IG reports on major corruption then indictments and trials. Think of that, Trump is closing all the back doors that let Democrats steal elections from spying on candidates. He’s forcing the government to do its core job, and give up all the fluff funding that is causing the deficits.

    There’s a lot of work still to be done. We need a methodical approach to dismantling everything. Obamacare insurance nightmare is still there, DACA, the VA, Common Core, then entitlement reform and actual health care reform. Terrorist regimes are being dismantled, but we still have the socialist nations collapsing in South America, global corruption in Africa, and a warmongering China. If the US would start being a force for good (Trump) instead of profiting from the corruption (Clinton Foundation), the world will rapidly become a better place. Not a socialist utopia, but a capitalism utopia.

      PS, I agree with everything you just said except the last. Well, even that I agree with but with a caveat. The capitalist utopia you mention needs to be backed up by a strong, quick, and forceful justice system that punishes those who abuse the public trust, lie and use deceit on the public, scam with defective and shoddy products that injure and cause illness to the public via big Pharma, Big Ag, etc., and most of all, to the legal profession many of whom wind up in leadership positions and use the law to protect themselves. The judges and courts are a complete mess and Trump is working to put good thinking men and women in positions who will mete out justice fairly, impartially, and swiftly.

      Example: Our special prosecutor investigating anything and everything in an attempt to bring down a duly elected President. He was not given a crime to investigate, he was given a mission: search & destroy. That is not American justice. It is a political witch hunt and those responsible should be held accountable. There are real crimes that need investigating and yet countless time and money is being wasted on this “search & destroy” mission. Time to call it off.

      But back to my point about capitalism. Too many business people play fast and loose with other people’s money, think the government is their piggy bank, and that the voters work for the elected. Polluters pollute and should be prosecuted. Consumer protection needs to have teeth in it. Social media is next to meaningless these days with so many mixed messages in play. We need someone who can confront crime, ferret out the truth quickly and communicate results widely, quickly. Capltalism can be good but is too often trashed by those who use it for get rich quick schemes which have the backing of our institutions, education, and government.

        Thanks, I agree with your points. Capitalism all too easily devolves to crony capitalism, and classical fascism. Hey! You got your government in my business! You got your business in my government! All points of failure.

        I had a professor say “Companies that have unions deserve them”. If people weren’t treating other people like commodities, a variable in a cost equation, abusing their positions of power, then we wouldn’t need oversight. But to your point, the oversight needs to be honest and dependable too. How much do we complain about government bit serving the needs of the constituents anymore? Laws that create market opportunities for politicians. Or protect an industry that refused to evolve. There’s a lot of spring cleaning needed here.

    Remember the Goldilocks Syrian bombing? Over in 50 minutes, but sent a perfect signal to all parties of our capabilities and willingness. Then he lets Israel show the Iran treasure clearly illustrating the facts of a prior nuclear program. Perfect visualization after France and Germany are in town to express their opinions. Then while announcing the withdrawal from the Iran deal, Pompeo lands in north Korea. Oh, and don’t forget the picture of Pompeo and Kim Jon Un released right when Pompeo was up for his confirmation vote LOL

    This has allot to do with NKorea. Simply NKorea would assume their negotiations to begin at the Iran deal frame work which is unacceptable. If Trump said it was a previous admin he wouldn’t approve NKorea would say they would wait him out, so the only way to change the table is kill the Iran deal it can be renegotiated later under better terms (especially if NKorea can be brought around and broken from Iranian alliance). Regardless with both enemy parties now negotiating their break with US we can flip back and forth leveraging one against the other.

    It is truly a great thing to see an actual real world skilled business man laying his tradecraft (negotiation) into foreign policy which our politick elites have claimed so complicated and special. Which it is not and Trump is proving that REAL WORLD skills are much more valuable in the real world actions than any politicalscience grad can comprehend.

    Contrary to the exploding heads on the left and in EU, there are two major points on the president’s decision.
    1. The Iranians themselves say that they are still in the deal with 5 EU nations. So, how does this increase speed of Iran getting weapons if they are really honoring the deal or is it they expect the EU to help them actually obtain Nuclear Technology?? Further there is zero proof of compliance with the Nuclear side of the agreement and amble proof the Iranians have zero intentions of not acting like the international criminals they have become. So, again how does the US leaving agreement hurt it??
    2. As for North Korea, I see them acting more belligerent if they stayed because they would have seen Iran rewarded economically for bad behavior with a deal and cash they have in hand from Obama.

    On Trump’s twitter feed (@realDonaldTrump) he hints at maybe pulling the crooked media’s press credentials until they can report more honestly. That little tweet sent the corrupt MSM into a full psychotic break, generating about 5 times as many comments as other nearby tweets about far more important matters. I hope he does pull their credentials. The MSM needs to be forced to openly admit that they are propagandists working against America’s best interests.

    The Iranian Rial’s Economic Death Spiral
    by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-09/iranian-rials-economic-death-spiral

    Intro excerpt:

    The Grim Reaper has taken his scythe to the Iranian rial (see chart below). The Islamic Republic of Iran remains in the ever-tightening grip of an economic death spiral. The economy is ever-vulnerable because of problems created by the last Shah, and added to massively by the theocratic regime. Indeed, the economy is more vulnerable to both internal and external shocks than ever. That vulnerability will become more apparent in the face of President Trump’s tearing up of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the laying on of more primary and secondary sanctions against Iran.

    How fast the death spiral will spin is anyone’s guess.
