    The first time I read that, I read it as saying ‘awaiting the cesspool’ instead of the ‘press pool’.

    It’s completely subconscious now, my revulsion toward slave media.

    This is why I think that Mike Pompeo will be the 46th President of the United States 🇺🇸 on January, 20, 2025. He is spearheading the efforts to get North Korea 🇰🇵 to denuclearize. I truly believe it will happen before our President finishes his first term in office. I think Pompeo, our President and Kim Jung ur are playing the China 🇨🇳 card perfectly.

    Kim realizes that there is great potential for his country and his people. South Korea 🇰🇷, Japan 🇯🇵 as well as other Asian countries will do everything in their power to take away China’s control of North Korea 🇰🇵. Look at Vietnam 🇻🇳 and Japan 🇯🇵 as two examples of countries we were at war with and look how well they are doing today and our relationship with both. Kim sees it with his own eyes.

    I also believe that the people of Iran 🇮🇷 will eventually overthrow the Mullahs. That pot is boiling and it is just a matter of time. Mike Pompeo is directly involved in that situation as well. He and our President are completely on the same page when it comes to our foreign policy. He understands TRUMPISM inside and out. He would carry it forward faithfully in my opinion.

    Thank God he Didn’t have to stay and answer any embarrassing questions about that Journalist disappeared (allegedly chopped up and put in handbags) at our bestest buddies Saudis Embassy in Turkey. It’s great that was assigned to the Saudis to investigate themselves.

    Did anyone else notice SoS Pompeo’s smile during the lunch video? Very effective, very culturally strategic. Smart man.

      That scene was classic!!!!!

      It can be very difficult to be in a foreign setting and making sure you are not misrepresented in translation. And it is also difficult to hide a chuckle at the decor!!!!

      Go back and look at the video, they are walking through some of the most immature interpretations of French design motifs. It’s hysterical! Always gets to me because dictatorships never understand the refinement of classical free thinking, proportions and artistry.

      The draperies are hideous. Completely out of proportion, and 1/3 of the fabric is used to create them that should be used. This tells me they struggled to afford the proper yardage that those side pamels and valances should have had to fabricate them.

      And Kim and Pompeo seem to walk through a bath vanity in a restroom to enter into the dining room? Probaby supposed to be a pantry, but it looks like there should be a toilet in the room. LOL!!!!

      And then the dining room. Look at the walls, furnishings and every other detail. The mark of very low understanding of the classical European proportion. I notice this everytime Kim meets with anyone in his domain.

      This is something that happens normally in SEA. They love the bling but have no idea now to create the sophisticated elements of the style. So EVERYTHING looks cheesy!

        So, another question. Where did this lunch take place?

        Kim came in from a car and met SoS Pompeo in the foyer. Was this a guesthouse in which Pompeo was staying? I do not believe we have any formal consulate in Pyongyang.

        My eyes popped when I saw that bathroom vanity in the hallway. Yeesh! And the rest of it was horrible. If it was red, rather than white, I would have said, ‘whorehouse’ but, it’s close enough! A lot of the ME is that way, too… but with clunkier ‘French’ style furniture. Persians for example, have made stunning rugs… yet the interior design often leaves a bad impression.

          This, like your observations, is just horrible.

          It always tells me if the host country has any semblance of stature. Inevitability, this one does not!

          I did a lot of design work in Indonesia. Same problem. They have this adolescent view that any pseudo-French interior is good, negating their own exquisite history.

          Well, that would explain the handy hanging hand sanitizer!

    According to sources, NK is inviting Pope Francis to visit — https://hotair.com/archives/2018/10/09/north-korea-pope-francis-come/ . Yeah, yeah, yeah, propaganda as usual and flushing out the remnants of long-persecuted Catholics…..

    If, however, you see NK inviting the Dalai Lama — then strap in, and make sure all points on the harness are snug.
