  1. Seriously not nit-picking here, but didn’t Jimmy Carter go there as ex-president in a failed attempt to retrieve a hostage? I could be remembering this wrong & clearly you mean a *sitting* president, but precision matters when the irrational unreasonable hysterical left reads this blog. Why give them the smallest shard of ammo, right?

      If memory serves, in 1994 or ’95, President Carter became the first U.S. president ever to visit North Korea when he met with Kim Il Sung (Kim’s Grandpa)… Carter and Kim II developed a bilateral, “step-by-step” plan to get NK to the point of peace and denuclearization. Great job, Jimmy… Obviously, Carter was a former president at the time… I believe Sundance’s comment is that President Trump would be the first sitting president of the United States to visit North Korea. Time for a real negotiator to achieve peace and denuclearization… But thanks for playing, Jimmy.

          On Pres. Truman side of the tally, FDR kept him out of the inner circle up to his death, making it difficult for the V.P. to know, much less anticipate what evil the Dulles Boyz had wrought to date.

          I would agree with that assessment, Dutchman. Thumbs down — Obama, Clinton, Carter and Johnson… Thumbs up to Truman… I break with you on Kennedy (sorta)… Though I agree that his presidency wasn’t long enough and was a mixed bag, I give JFK the benefit of the doubt. Growing up in an Irish Catholic Democrat family in Massachusetts (before fleeing to NH), we had a picture of the Pope and JFK in the living room… Chalk it up to brainwashing, I guess… But I’m not stupid… Teddy was reprehensible as was the old man… Read Howie Carr’s “Kennedy Babylon” I and II for the story-behind-the-story… But something tells me you already know most of it.

          On our historically contextual/thematic, normally distributed, quintile scale –applying every possible 3-component rating to rank and serialize 41 Presidential incumbents (excluding W.H. Harrison, Zachary Taylor, James Garfield, while not double-counting Grover Cleveland’s two non-consecutive terms)– Truman scores 9th (B2A, statistical Index 1.155), Kennedy scores 18th (C1F, statistical Index .214).

          Forget doofus academic polls– the most recent rated FDR Number 2, ahead of Lincoln and Jefferson (!), while our scale ranks him C3A, Index -.299, with LBJ and Wilson (C3B and C3C, statistically -.385 and -.470 respectively).

          For the record, counting individual incumbents vs. terms, Trump is President 44, not 45. Double-counting Cleveland, consistency requires designating Trump (2016 – 1788)/4 = President # 57, equivalent to counting FDR four times.

          Jimmy Carter has always been pushing for relevance and some sort of a legacy after his disastrous presidency which left him as nothing more than a spec of dust on the historical presidential landscape. Its no surprise then, that he went to North Korea as a ‘lay person’ on his own volition AGAINST THE DIRECT ADMONITIONS of the administration at that time. Same reason that a few days ago Carter irresponsibly tried to make waves by saying Russia elected Trump and that Trump is an illegitimate president. Carter just cant accept that they are about to close the lid on his box at 94 years old, and he has not yet done a darn thing worthwhile worth remembering. Hateful old bat that he is, the pact he made with the devil makes him extremely afraid to quit this earth.

    Well, it looks like Kim Jong-un is getting in the swing of developing tourism…where’s the golf course?

    FTA: So what will the latest large-scale national construction project foreign-facing tourist zone contain, how much progress has been made, and how does it fit into bigger plans for development and tourism in the southeast region of North Korea?

    What is known about the project

    In his first visit to the site last August, Kim toured an existing greenhouse complex with rudimentary hot springs pools and pipings in the area, and reportedly decided to build a “hot spring health resort and sanatoria” to include indoor and outdoor baths as well as lodgings in its place.

    When he visited a second time in late October, the greenhouses had been demolished and builders were stacking concrete blocks in their place, as Kim brought a new plan to make a resort “divided into recuperation section and tourist and relaxation section.”

    According to this coverage and subsequent reports in state media, these will include:

    Recuperation district with hot springs baths and a health treatment service center
    Rest district with hot springs baths and a general sporting and cultural rest center
    General service district, likely with shops and restaurants
    Hotel district with various types of lodgings
    Ski hill and lift with related facilities

    Choi Sun-hee, North Korea’s first deputy to the Foreign Ministry and Stephen Vegan, the US special envoy for North Korea, met at Panmunjom on the night of the 29th.

    US President Donald Trump is in talks with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPZ) on the occasion of a visit to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). It is the first time since the first summit of Hanoi and the summit meeting of the US Summit in February.

    A bright source on the Korean peninsula’s situation is that on the 30th, “We know that Vice President-in-Office and Choi Sun-hee’s first match met at Panmunjom last night.” The problem is whether Kim Jong Eun and Trump will meet in the Demilitarized Zone.

    In a meeting with President Roh Moo-hyun, President Trump said that he was not in contact with Pyongyang for the dinner. But when he returned to the hotel at 10:05 pm on the 29th, he answered “I will not answer” to the question of “Did you have a conversation with the North” and closed your mouth shortly.

    Trump later said he would feel “very comfortable” stepping across the border into North Korea. If that happened, it would be the first time a sitting U.S. president visited North Korea.
