Act II – The Dance of The Dragon Continues….

China controls the DPRK, that’s the baseline reality.  The question debated over the past several years, has been to what extent?  Having witnessed the Singapore Summit, perhaps we now have additional understanding of the scale and scope.

Kim Jong-un “is” the Panda Mask.

If you accept the cunning nature of the Beijing Dragon, and the false geopolitical face of the Panda mask as historically presented by the control elements now represented by Chairman Xi Jinping, a striking probability looms.  Not only does China influence North Korea, but China actually controls every element of the North Korean government that surrounds Chairman Kim Jong-un.

The problem for Chairman Xi is what happens when all of the political forces align to place Chairman Kim Jong-un in a position of opening the door for the U.S. and President Trump and the West (writ large) to enter North Korea under the auspices of a CVID nuclear agreement.

In essence, President Trump may now enter into a land where the officials report exclusively to Chairman Xi, and no-one knew.  This presents a possibility the larger global community might soon discover the true nature of the Beijing/Pyongyang connection.

Consider that Chairman Kim was/is likely put into power not as a linear out-coming of his familial relationship, but more as a strategy of ongoing Chinese duplicity. Kim Jong-un was seen as easier to control.  Consider the possibility that all of the DPRK officials who carry out the objectives of the ruling North Korean government are factually operating according to the dictates of the hidden Chinese authority.

Within this dynamic Chairman Kim received the scorn of the international community; but was -in reality- merely a figurehead, a false panda face – hiding the true authority behind all of the DPRK policy, and a designed strategy constructed by China.

Consider that by confronting the economic interests of China, President Trump fractured the decades-long ruse, and is now positioned to expose the nature of the Chinese ruling authority within North Korea.   This becomes a stunning paradigm shift; a reality that few could possibly fathom, unless you consider the cunning of Beijing.

Under this scenario, it is adverse to the interest of China for a united, open and democratic Korean peninsula where the North and South are together again.  It would be particularly adverse to Xi’s interests if the U.S., Japan and a united Korea formed any substantive  international alliance.

The best play for China would be to control the outcomes of any unification and position China as the control agent for any united Korea.  This would be critically important if, as I am now increasingly confident, North Korea was/is actually a proxy province of China and has been for decades under the complete -albeit hidden- rule of the Chinese authority.

Under this scenario, Chairman Xi has to play a very careful game of geopolitical cunning; and if at any moment he sees Chairman Kim accepting the rescue of President Trump, Xi will likely move to eliminate Kim and defend his interests quickly.

Imagine the internal stress upon the young Kim Jong-un who has been forced to ride this dragon for almost a decade, and knows his government is not actually his government but rather a governing body with all officials reporting to Beijing.

Imagine you are the next-door-neighbor to an abused child who lives inside the palace of the abuser.  The abuse has been psychological and manipulative upon this child for decades. How do you rescue him?  Additionally, how do you rescue him when the ultimate abuser is the king of all communities, governments, political and legal systems in/around the palace?… and only you know the nature of the dynamic….

What if….

Kim has not been victimized by the Panda mask, but rather Kim IS THE Panda mask.

Start there, and proceed with the geopolitical rescue efforts accordingly.

This presented scenario, while challenging the customary perspective, reconciles all of the conflicting aspects to the North Korean regime with the latest known empirical evidence.





Now, WATCH AGAIN, without the volume:


PS. Notice how normally POTUS Trump has been effusive of praise upon Xi Jinping. However, after the one-on-one with Chairman Kim, that praise was considerably less….

    If the dragon sees this going south, and Kim pulling away, we could very well see a Chinese ground invasion of NoKo. They will never give up the hold on Korea. Remember when they stepped in before? Kim has a legit reason to be nervous. Or, this could all be a grand play by Xi. Strange days.

      Given their precarious trade position with the US, would China risk a ground invasion of NK when the negotiations are going on with PT? Seems China would lay low, and hope the US falters in its promises to NK.

      The risk for China is that PT really means what he says, that he’ll promote NK developing its resources for the good of its people, and protecting Kim while it’s happening. By the time China could contemplate retaking NK, the process of improvement in NK would be so far along that the kind of military action China would have done “in the old days” will have become wholly impractical.

        Yeah, China has been exposed as being wholly dependent on American weakness and treason. Without those two ingredients they can be check-mated. Just a few years of economic vitalization and integration with the South and US will be impossible to reverse. The last thing Xi could afford to do is rip off the panda mask by invading a free and independent NK. Panda’s gonna lick his wounds and look to Africa or somewhere else to pour his money down the drain.

      Another scenario: Perhaps Xi has a long-term plan in mind. Maybe he sees China–and not the US– as becoming the power broker and military hegemon for a unified Korea. This would be a delicate operation for Xi to pull off. Chinese influence would have to be asserted slowly, over the course of many years, so as not to alarm the US. But if successful, it would be an incredible extension of Chinese power. They will have conquered all of Korea–North and South–without firing a shot.

    These sorts of staged, world-platform events are usually scripted to the point of robotics. I don’t think I’ve ever seen body language, personality and raw emotion so define what’s going on. We frankly could watch the whole summit on mute and get the picture. Until now, KJU has been hidden and isolated, and all we hear and see is “brutal dictator.” And out walks this smiling, wide-eyed, nervous young man who looks like he wants to hug not just PM Moon but every leader or envoy who wants to talk to him.

    Our media and political class is destroying itself. They are exposed in rooting against their own President and country’s best interests, and in their vile contempt for what anyone paying attention must recognize as seeds of hope and optimism for a long-suffering country and region.

    I hope that President Trump’s and Secretary Pompeo’s proud confidence in this whole affair means that they’ve got a plan to protect KJU and offer him a path to independence (and/or reunification with the South), should he choose it. I believe that is what they (Trump, Pompeo) mean by “security assurances.”

      Based on recent Q drops, KJU is being “protected” by Blackwater. I don’t necessarily hold to the construct that China controls NK, although they may have/had influence. Q drops from 11/17 pointed to the C(lowns) I(n) A(merica) were (past tense) controlling NK (Q drop 12/22/17). Also consider that the C(lowns) I(n) A(merica) were/are acting in China (Q drop 2/22/18).

      @Newhere: I agree with you and your comment is spot on! 🙂

      Let me add something that came to light while this summit was ongoing and told by one of the military members providing security for the president since day one:

      Hussein and deep state et al attempted to assassinate King Jung-Un BEFORE the summit to prevent him from turning over evidence against the deep state actors within his own government and those from the US as well as Hussein.
      Hussein failed as he was unable to call to NK because the numbers he had were outdated.
      We were also told that Kim removed three (3) generals from within his own government that conspired with the deep state after being tipped of by our military intelligence.

      Remember one of the planes loaded with pallets of cash landed in NK. Hussein was suppose to live in NK since everything blew up in their face. The deep state were his protection there as well as the US having no extradition treaty with NK. He is desperately trying to escape justice.

      I leave it here as more will come to the surface as the Huber/Horowitz investigations proceed uncovering treason after treason by our government class.

    Another observation, just from raw body language and dynamics: Trump doesn’t seem to be in this alone; Japan and South Korea seem all-in. Which seems essential, for this to work, and seems to totally make sense that Trump would secure their enthusiastic buy-in to the goal and process. Not clear yet what their specific roles and incentives are — but doesn’t it seem that their already on board?

    And think: Obama was trying to isolate China by brow-beating Japan and South Korea into the Frankenstein TPP. American should “write the rules for trade in the 21st century” so China doesn’t — remember? I’m sure there was some expert-level 20-dimensional chess going on, but it sure was hard to explain to *anyone’s* citizens why it was a good idea, and if it was meant to seal friendships I’m sure the arm-twisting and corporate bullying really helped.

    Contrast with NK deal: PM Moon wants to nominate Trump for the peace prize, and PM Abe sure seems to be right behind Trump (as showcased in the famous G7 prom pic).

    Obama leveraged tensions and insecurities to pressure economic concessions, in service of the vague cause of “economic integration” (meant to foster “partnerships”) but in service of no country’s specific, discernible national interests (all governments were fighting their citizens to these deals passed). Trump placed stress on these uneasy geopolitical and economic “partnerships” to force attention back to national interests, with immovable indifference to the edifices of globalism, and offering fair deals and respect national sovereignty. As Sundance wrote in a prior column — remove the layer of globalist brokers and mediators from the equation, and authentic national character emerges.

    Any strengthening of the US position is not in China’s interest, but they will not collapse NK or face the Americans down – yet. The complex trade and tariff struggle looms for both China and Europe. Expect sly positioning games between Europeans and Chinese aslosses in Iran are not yet accepted or absorbed by an EU under mounting pressures of fracture, immmigration, and money. The Germans are exposed for their improperly low NATO contribution, and they are not going to enjoy the stiff lecture the President will soon repeat.

        2015: This week a Salem Communications insider steps forth (via email) to affirm all of the previous reports, and add details specific to the instructions from Salem Broadcasting and Salem Communications group:

        In 2014 (sorry, cannot recall the date), Salem Radio hosted a conference call with Senator Marco Rubio to address the Gang of Eight legislation and “set the record straight.” All national and local talk hosts were urged to take part. I am one of their local hosts, and what I heard that day was troubling.

        Moderated by Hugh Hewitt, it began with Senator Rubio offering a brief explanation of the measure and why it was so very necessary. Then Hewitt opened the call to questions. There were only a few, and they were exclusively from higher-profile, national Salem personalities, like Mike Gallagher, Katie Pavlich, and Mark Davis. No local host was permitted a question. Following the Q & A, Senator Rubio was cut loose, and that’s when things got weird.

        After Rubio departed, Hewitt introduced Salem V.P. Tom Tradup, who began by saying, “Thanks, Hugh. Now, here’s how I would like our talkers to be talking about this…” I exited the call in disgust at that point and have no idea what followed.

        The effort by the GOPe to co-opt the so-called “conservative media” is real, and it’s widespread. It also makes me gag.

    What if North Korea’s nukes are really not North Korea’s nukes – but China’s nukes? No one has ever seen these weapons – so there is no way to confirm that these are of “home grown” North Korean manufacture vs. on loan from the Chinese PLA. China would have put them in place long ago, under Kim’s daddy. Imagine how aghast Kim is now with the knowledge that the damn things DON’T WORK – and, thus, provide zero deterrence against an aggressor.

    Trump, sensing that this whole scenario might be a nuclear Potemkin Village, is sending the fat boy home with the suggestion that if Kim abandons the Chinese nuke umbrella – Trump will replace it with one that demonstrably works. It’s a powerful sales pitch – if Trump has it scoped out accurately.

China actually invaded Vietnam but the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) was beaten back by the much better trained and equipped Vietnamese.

    So, if Chairman Kim admires another neighbor of China that maintains an arms-length distance from the Middle Kingdom that’s quite interesting.

  13. I wonder what China is willing to go to to maintain their hold on Kim Jong-un. Is it possible they use personal threats on his life in addition to economic leverage?

    February 11th, 2017 – North Korea ballistic missile test over Japan.
    February 12th, 2017 – President Trump and Prime Minister Abe issue joint statement from Mar-a-Lago.
    February 13th, 2017 – Kim Jong-un’s brother is assassinated in Malaysia.

    What if Kim was getting nervous with President Trump standing so firm with the Japanese that he wanted to ease tensions, and his brother was a warning from China to keep the pressure up? This is clearly speculation, but we had not yet entered into Chinese trade negotiations. This means they would’ve wanted maximum pressure for maximum leverage over economic negotiations.

    Obviously there is a great possibility that China had nothing to do with this. However, with new understanding of the true extent of Chinese control over the DPRK surfacing, one cannot rule out all possible influencing agents. Just something to think about.

      They have little internal economic growth. They import materials and export stuff. They skipped tbe part where they empower their people, create a robust middle-class, and develpop their own industrial material support base, such as mining.

      As Sundance has noted, China has an aging population with an unnatural dearth of progeny, due to the one-child-policy. They are in a poor position to play catch-up on the self-sufficiency front, thus, they have doubled down on the external dependence model with the One-Belt/One-Road Initiative (whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean).

      They are all but colonizing Africa. They are preparing for confrontation with India as China is aggressively building up its forces to “protect” its route skirting India, already skirmishes have occurred over this in the past year.

    What if…. Kim has not been victimized by the Panda mask, but rather Kim IS THE Panda mask.

    Here’s my take, though I could be WAY off:

    We’ve talked about how Xi/China can switch between their Panda mask and Dragon mask as the circumstances dictate. But if instead of both those masks being a part of Xi, maybe only the Dragon mask is an actual part of his makeup…. so he needs to occasionally BORROW the Panda mask when he needs it. Now what if someone (Trump) comes along and steals that Panda mask (Kim), leaving Xi with nothing but the Dragon mask. That’s all he’s got left. So does that mean that Xi/China is about to realize the game is up, no more pretending? From now on it’s gotta be all Dragon, all the time? And if that’s the case, what does that mean for the rest of the world?
