If there is one thing that Rino Republicans and Zio-fascist Democrats abhor it is peace, especially if peace means that their cash cow, boogey man in North Korea disappears. If Trump is able to negotiate and denuclearized Korean Peninsula the 2018 mid-term election is over before it starts. From Tom Luongo:

Globalists/US political toadies stunned as Trump schools G7 and forges peace with NK
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. ~ Matthew 7:16-20 King James Version (KJV)
President Donald J. Trump has sent the globalists and their puppets in the US congress reeling with his whirlwind tour smashing the globalist’s in-crowd love fest at the G7 and delivering the unthinkable, a prospect for real peace between North Korea, South Korea and America.
President Donald Trump has sat back and watched administration after administration cow-tow to the globalists at the G7 pledging America’s treasure to prop up the economies of our so called allies. The globalists’ real agenda was bared at the G7 meeting hosted by Canada’s Justin Trudeau. From Tom Luongo at Gold Goats and Guns:
G-6? 7? 8? How About the Gang That Can’t Shoot Straight?
I have to say that as much as I don’t like the direction Trump’s foreign policy has gone, there are still plenty of moments of unbridled joy in watching the man work a crowd. His suggestion of allowing Russia back into the G-7 is one of those moments. Trump has a nearly preternatural way of getting under the skin of his opponents. And this stink bomb was one of them.
It highlighted the divide between the G-7, one of the most important tools of control by the globalists, and Trump. It also highlighted its irrelevance to him, since China was hosting Russia and six other important countries at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Quindao at the same time. In effect, Trump was saying, “Why should I listen to you? You aren’t important enough to listen to…”
Most importantly, however, Trump dared them all to kick him out of the G-7 for not playing by their rules, just like they did to Putin for reunifying with Crimea… It’s Trump’s greatest strength, sowing chaos and discord, forcing everyone to reassess their positions…
The more I watch Trump in action the more I’m convinced his goal is to break Germany. His antipathy for Angela Merkel is palpable. He knows she’s the main conduit for the worst impulses of the globalists meeting at Bilderberg this weekend… He knows her goal is to destroy Europe through forced immigration and internal wealth transfer payments.
So, it almost seems to me that any policy stance he takes is designed to harm Germany and that includes continually driving a wedge between Germany and Russia. You can also see his pulling out of the JCPOA this way. The EU benefited from the deal through cheap Iranian oil paid for with euros, not dollars…
Trump is no dummy, contrary to popular opinion. He knows that a Germany independent from U.S. political control is a nightmare for a lot of people in Europe. It wields a lot of control over the political process in the EU. Previous to Trump Merkel et.al. were in cahoots with the U.S. to subjugate Europe, expand NATO and cut off Russia.
Now Trump has clarified the relationship, not as partners, but as servants. And this is why the G-7 are so angry with him… It’s clear to me now that dealing with Germany’s dominance over Europe is a higher priority to Trump than mending fences with Russia and Putin. So you can rest assured Italy will have a friend in its upcoming confrontations with Brussels over its future.
Breaking Up is Easy To Do
The net effect of Trump’s standing firm for the U.S. in trade negotiations is that it isolates the unfair advantages Germany enjoys over the rest of Europe. And the more Germany tries to hold onto its current status the more it will isolate itself within the Union.
And I’m good with Trump doing this. It’s for the best. The EU is a tyrannical corporatist nightmare that is only sustainable through byzantine tariffs and wealth transfer systems from countries borrowing based on Germany’s credit rating. It was never truly sustainable and the political upheaval is only going to get worse…
Meanwhile in Qingdao, Russia and China further affirmed their relationship as a something just short of an alliance. This was the first SCO meeting with India and Pakistan as full members. Iran and China signed preliminary free trade deals with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) in May. India is committed to its North South Transport Corridor plans linking it with the rest of central Asia via Iran, despite Trump’s threats.
So, as the G-7 fractures, the Asian community firms up. Putin’s post-summit statement is a concise message of where we go from here: “Solidarity in this regard occurs on some very shaky ground. It seems to me that we should stop all this creative babbling and move on to specific issues related to real cooperation.”
Free Trade or free ride?
While France’s Macron and Canada’s Trudeau were exposed as feeble tools of the Globalists who control the G7, Trump has shown who the new leader of the free world really is. No longer will America lay down and take it while our lunch is stolen by the Globalists. From Russia Insider:
Trump's America Is a Prisoner of the Euro-Weenies, Time to Break Free!
The political class is screaming bloody murder over Trump’s performance at the G-7 meeting in Canada, where he reportedly spent most of the time detailing how much the US was paying for the defense of our vaunted “allies,” not to mention the high tariffs imposed on American goods. He then proposed a “free trade zone” in which member countries would drop all tariffs, subsidies, and other barriers to trade: the “allies” didn’t like that much, either.
Nor did the alleged advocates of free trade here in the US give him any credit for ostensibly coming around to their point of view. Which reminds me of something Murray Rothbard said about this issue: “If authentic free trade ever looms on the policy horizon, there’ll be one sure way to tell. The government/media/big-business complex will oppose it tooth and nail.”
Of course the Euro-weenies don’t want real free trade: after all, they practically invented protectionism. What they want is a free ride, at Uncle Sam’s expense, and the reason they hate Trump is because they know the freebies are over. However, what really got the Usual Suspects frothing at the mouth was Trump’s insistence that Russia be readmitted to the G-8:
"I think it would be good for the world, I think it would be good for Russia, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all of the countries in the G-7. I think having Russia back in would be a positive thing. We’re looking to have peace in the world. We’re not looking to play games."
The “experts” went crazy when he said this: our “allies” are being insulted, they wailed, while our “enemies” are being “appeased.” It’s sedition! Russia! Russia! Russia! The cries of “treason” that accompany the pronouncements of prominent public figures associated with #TheResistance are a simple case of projection: they accuse Trump of what they are plainly guilty of.
Our political class doesn’t even try to hide its brazen disloyalty: they openly and loudly side with any foreign mendicant – Canada, Germany, et al – that feels entitled to our largesse and is outraged when it isn’t forthcoming.
On to North Korea peace talks
For 70 years the globalists have maintained the status quo in North Korean to ensure the military industrial complex has a steady stream of US taxpayer dollars. As early as 1999 Donald Trump knew how to affect peace with North Korea. From Meet the Press 1999:
The Trump / Kim Summit is the Wedge Issue of 2018
If there was anything that could dampen my enthusiasm for a positive outcome from President Trump’s meeting with North Korea Leader Kim Jong-un it would have been the outpouring of bitterness from the Left and the Never-Trumpers of the establishment Right.
Perusing #TrumpKimSummit last night on Twitter while the meeting was happening was an illuminating experience. It was full of #TheResistance demeaning any prospect of peace simply because Trump was the one standing opposite Kim Jong-un.
All thoughts of the prospect of peace and ending a seventy-plus year conflict frozen for the very same cynical geopolitical reasons these same people normally decry as welfare for the Military-Industrial Complex took a backseat to their DeNiro-esque agenda against Trump.
Welcome to the wedge issue of 2018. Here, like the Ron Paul campaigns of 2008 and 2012, the liberal-interventionists and the neoconservatives join forces to circle the wagons against someone breaking through the carefully constructed, yet false, narrative of the politically powerful. The goal? Enforce the status quo which enriches them and bankrupts you…
Both factions of the globalist/interventionist political chattering class woke up this morning to the realization that they no longer have as much ammunition to justify a tyrannical American empire all over the world.
Selling their Utopian fantasy of unassailable control for them and universal serfdom for us just got that much harder. Trump said he would end the war games with South Korea. This is a concrete step which mirrors Kim’s steps already taken to destroy his nuclear testing facility.
Kim put something on the table before showing up in Singapore. It was only right for Trump to do the same. Doing so unilaterally, as the head of state and Commander-in-Chief reminds everyone that 1) he’s in charge, not them and 2) he values building trust with Kim more than satisfying the braying jackals of his Cabinet and K-Street.
If there is one thing truly animating Trump’s presidency it is his desire to cleave open the Gordian knots of domestic and foreign policy issues that have the world sliding slowly towards a horrifying conclusion.
He knows that the world has been made far more complicated than it needs to be because the goal of the post-WWII institutional order has been to move humanity against its will towards the global feudalism I described earlier. He knows these institutions are wrong.
From the IMF to the World Bank. The WTO to the U.N. The G-7 to the EU. These things are sold to us as necessary parts of the machine that keep the world running. And our natural tendency is to see the best of what they could be rather than what they actually are.
They are used to, paraphrasing Nietzsche, muddy the waters to make them appear deep. When, in fact, these problems, like Korea, are not complicated to solve. They are quite simple. Whose ox is gored in the process? That’s complicated.
And each time he approaches a new issue, whether I agree with his methods or not, he brings out the Sword of Damocles and threatens everyone’s position on both sides of the political aisle. Yesterday he swung that sword at his own foreign policy and military advisors. Over the weekend he swung it at the G-7. Next he’ll pick a domestic target, likely the Justice Department via the Inspector General’s report.
That’s why yesterday’s summit is the defining moment of 2018… You will know if a person you meet still has his mind open if they can admit, even grudgingly, that Trump and Kim meeting was an unqualified good thing. Nothing good ever comes from people shouting at each other and going to bed angry. Anyone arguing that Trump got played or Kim got legitimized is operating from blindness.
Trump had a bad hand coming into these talks. The North Koreans have a nuclear weapon. Bullies like the U.S. only talk when they have lost an edge. If all Trump does here is negotiate a face-saving withdrawal over time from Korea and North Korea never fires a missile in anger it will be a victory for the world.
It will even be a victory for the U.S. Not for the Empire but for the people.
How true, if the Trump/Kim summit is successful it will be a victory for the American people, but not for Empire. Not only will it be a victory for Americans it will be a victory for South Korea, Japan, Guam, and the world. From Anti-War:
South Korea, Japan Cheer Trump-Kim Summit Results
South Korea's President Moon vows 'new chapter of peace'
President Trump’s successful summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has been praised internationally. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres backed the denuclearization agreement. The most interesting comments came from North Korea’s neighbors.
Japan’s Prime Minister Abe Shinzo said the denuclearization pledge had “great meaning” for his country. Abe said he will continue to back the US on the matter, and that he hopes for “strong support” from the US on trying to resolve questions about kidnapped Japanese citizens taken by North Korea.
South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in, who has had two summits with Kim himself, and has taken the lead on a lot of the diplomatic overtures, was even more upbeat on the talks. Moon vowed to see a “new chapter of peace” on the Korean Peninsula.
The North and South Koreans and Japanese must be thrilled to have an end to the war games and all the fallout from the pointless, polluting exercises. The exercises themselves must have cost a fortune in manpower and firepower. It’s about time. From LaRouchepub.com:
Trump: We are Ending our Provocative and Expensive War Games in Korea
June 12, 2018 (EIRNS)—President Trump announced during his press conference in Singapore that he is ending all military exercises in South Korea as long as negotiations are proceeding, calling them both “provocative” and hugely expensive.
“I used to say this during my campaign..., I want to get our soldiers out. I want to bring our soldiers back home. We have 32,000 soldiers in South Korea. I would like to be able to bring them back home. That’s not part of the equation. At some point, I hope it would be.”
But then he continued: “We will stop the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money.... Plus, I think it’s very provocative.”
He particularly pointed to the B-52’s flown in from Guam, at great expense, to “drop bombs all over the place and go back to Guam.... Under the circumstances that we are negotiating a comprehensive and complete deal, it is inappropriate to have war games. Number one, we save money—a lot. And number two, it really is something that I think they very much appreciate.”
Hmm, very expensive indeed. No doubt members of congress and Wall Street investors who make a fortune off such exercises are not going to take that laying down. No doubt they will fight tooth and nail to derail the peace talks. From Mint Press:
Peace is Bad for Business: Stocks Plummet After Trump-Kim Summit
American defense contractors were practically drooling over the prospect of all-out war with North Korea as President Donald Trump was recklessly flinging “fire and fury” last year, but Tuesday’s summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un appears to have dampened war profiteers’ dreams of yet another catastrophic U.S.-led military conflict—at least for now.
Demonstrating that even the slightest whiff of peace is enough to scare investors in America’s most profitable military contractors, USA Today reported on Tuesday that shares of Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, and General Dynamics all “took a dive” as Trump and Kim signed a vague, non-binding agreement that is merely the first step toward a lasting diplomatic solution.
“Peace is bad for business,” noted writer Ajit Singh in response to the new report.
According to USA Today:
Shares of Raytheon, which makes Patriot and Tomahawk missiles, fell 2.6 percent. Lockheed Martin, which supplies the Pentagon with air and missile defense systems as well as the F-35 Stealth fighter jet, tumbled one percent. And Northrop Grumman, which has increased its focus on cyber warfare and missile defense systems more recently, declined 1.3 percent. Boeing, which makes Apache helicopters and aerial refueling aircraft, dipped 0.2 percent. General Dynamics, a Navy shipbuilder, fell one percent.
By contrast, the Dow Jones industrial average edged up 20 points.”
As financial analyst Brad McMillan noted in an interview with USA Today, falling defense stocks represent investors’ fears that the chance for a hot war between the U.S. and North Korea—which he describes as “one of the big potential growth stories recently”—could be slipping away.
“If weapons are used they need to be replaced. That makes war a growth story for these stocks,” McMillan added. “What the agreement [between Trump and Kim] does, at least for a while, is take military conflict off the table.”
But before you start feeling bad for America’s war profiteers—and before you give Trump credit for dragging their stocks down—just remember that Democrats and Republicans in Congress just granted the U.S. president’s wish for a $717 billion Pentagon budget, much of which goes straight into the pockets of companies like Boeing, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin.
My, my, my. Our President Donald J. Trump is doing exactly what he promised to do when we voted him into office. President Trump is knocking down the barriers to peace that were carefully crafted by Democrats and Republicans alike. President Donald J. Trump has sent the globalists and their puppets in the US congress reeling with his whirlwind tour smashing the globalist’s in-crowd love fest at the G7 and delivering the unthinkable, a prospect for real peace between North Korea, South Korea and America.
Thank God America has a real leader in Donald Trump. President Trump is not beholden to the Military Industrial Complex who has built the congress they want. A congress who lines their pockets through war profiteering. Well there’s a new sheriff in town and the gravy train is over. Good riddance.
