    And, it’s 3:02 pm PST here in Moscow on the Willamette.

      @MaryfromMarin: ^^^^^^^This!

      Yep this is a genuine friendship not only as two men aside from politics but even more so as leaders of their respective countries. That is priceless!

    U.S. Media staff has been told to not wear the color Purple on Monday when they visit the Japanese Imperial Palace.
    Apparently the color purple is reserved in Japan for Emporers and the Imperial Family as well as high ranking officials.

    Fox News Reporter John Roberts said that today.

    I am sincerely happy that Japan and America are on the same team.
    We are engaged in the serious business of making our respective countries stronger,
    our economic and civil relationships stronger,
    and perhaps even saving the free world.
    I wish Abe and Trump successful negotiations, and low golf scores!

      I fully agree. We could do much, much worse than to have the Japanese as our firm allies. They are as competent a group as one finds on this planet, and they make very good friends. PM Abe is head and shoulders better than any national leader in all of Europe (Viktor Orban honorably excepted), and the Japanese have a very firm national grasp of reality. If we were willing to do so, we could learn a tremendous amount from Japan about national cohesiveness.

    Tokyo, Japan ? The one in Japan? That’s narrowed it down, was confused previously.

    Japan is now our CLOSEST ally, since May and Great Britain assisted in the attempted coup against Trump! That’s the biggest reason why she is a goner!

    I have a fond fun Tokyo Palace hotel memory (where PDJT is staying) to share with Treepers. While we lived in Munich (near 6 years from early 1978-late 1983), we became art influenced by our dear friends and downstairs condo neighbors, both German medical doctors who collected limited edition prints (Miro was their thing). They also helped us gain fluent German.

    So we got interested in signed limited edition art prints, and on a trip to London in Piccadilly Arcade found a Japanese Uchida. Since I had lived in Japan as a boy, we decided Uchida was our thing like Miro was theirs. Bought it as our first Uchida.

    So years later am on a several days business staying at the Palace in Tokyo (hint—is next to the Emperor’s real Palace, other side of the moat) and wander down to their commercial shop floor. There was an art gallery. Go in, and rummaging find 3!! underpriced Uchida’s. Bought all three.

    Punchline, a decade later as a very senior partner/rainmaker am hosting a catered dinner at my Chicagoland manse formal dining room (seating 12) for an international BCG case team as a thank you. Four Japanese members. One looks at the walls (on which are hanging 5 Uchidas) and says, are those Uchidas? I said yes. He whispered, I have the postcards.

    We haven’t had a real President representing the USA since Reagan. When Obozo took his clown act on the road, with his Wookie sideshow, which by the way, was often, it was a cringe worthy show no matter what country he visited. He even made a fool of himself in Cuba with his idol Castro.

    With rock star President Trump and Super Model First Lady Melania, it is a 5 star act and a sense of pride for the USA. Real world leaders, not the infantile lefty yoyos such as Trudope and Macaroni, respect President Trump and by extension, respect the USA. It feels GOOOOODDDDD!!!!!

    Here is an article where NSA Bolton says the US supports PM Abe’s efforts to have a meeting with NK as very helpful to the process

      This is NK’s response so far:

      KCNA: “The Japanese reactionaries’ rhetoric is just nonsense peculiar to those who are mentally deranged. Japan likes to show off its plump purse but it can never give a facelift to its bad image and its busy diplomacy never helps it…This is just the deplorable plight of Japan.”

      According to the press pool, POTUS doesn’t sleep on AF1, he works, reads chats etc.They lose their beauty sleep and now many are declining to go on these longhaul flights with the President.

      I call it POTUS sneak attack.

    Was anyone else surprised at how small the chairs were? The room looked like they had stepped into a large Doll House. I don’t mean this as a criticism at all. It was just my immediate perception.

  18. Is there anyone televising his visit?


  19. Pyrthroes says:

    To think that, 74 years after an incredibly deadly conflict, America and Japan have reconciled profound socio-cultural differences to mutually prosperous benefit, indicates that Gitchie Manitou looks down on His creation, spreads almighty Eagle Wings, and smiles.


  20. john clark says:

    Our first Reality President warms up the crowd with some politically inept humor about trade imbalances and the crowd goes wild! The Japanese love Trump, the North Koreans love Trump, the Europeans love Trump, the Russians love Trump, the Isrealis especially love Trump. The whole world loves Trump except the Democrats and Iranians, we know this because Trump tells us that -and he doesn’t lie or do cover-ups!
