Paul Krugman: A "...de facto foreign agent sits in the Oval Office."

Mod: It is my belief that the photo-op staged in Singapore earlier this week was arranged by the same overseas individuals who put Trump into the White House, and designed to make their premier American asset look like he can actually do something. I guess we'll find out if anyone was fooled.

Paul Krugman: A Quisling and His Enablers (New York Times link): Congress is controlled by Republicans. And their response to a president whose actions are manifestly not just un-American but anti-American has been … a few sad tweets from a handful of senators who are unhappy about Trump’s behavior but not willing to do anything real. Most Republicans haven’t even gone that far: They’re just silent.

Why are Republican politicians unwilling to discharge their constitutional responsibilities? Relatively few of them, one suspects, actually want a trade war, let alone a breakup of the Western alliance. And many of them, one also suspects, are well aware that a de facto foreign agent sits in the Oval Office. But they are immobilized by a combination of venality and cowardice.

On one side, tax cuts for the rich have become the overriding priority for the modern G.O.P., and Trump is giving them that, so they’re willing to let everything else slide.

On the other side, the party’s base really does love Trump, not for his policies, but for the performative cruelty he exhibits toward racial minorities and the way he sticks his thumb in the eyes of “elites.” So any Republican politician who takes a stand on behalf of what we used to think were fundamental American values is at high risk of losing his or her next primary. And as far as we can tell, there is not a single elected Republican willing to take that risk, no matter what Trump does.

  
Trump Dismisses Kim Jong Un’s Atrocities: ‘He’s a Tough Guy’ (Daily Beast link): In an interview with Fox News immediately after his summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, President Donald Trump appeared to dismiss North Korea’s human rights violations and Kim’s atrocities against his own people.

“Hey, he’s a tough guy. When you take over a country—a tough country, tough people—and you take it over from your father, I don’t care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have. If you can do that at 27 years old, I mean, that’s one in 10,000 that could do that. So he’s a very smart guy. He’s a great negotiator,” Trump told Fox News’ Bret Baier.

When pressed further, Trump responded: “Yeah, but so have other people done some really bad things. I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done.” Last year, the president made a similar argument when dismissing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s human rights violations. “What do you think, our country's so innocent?” he said at the time.

Reporters thought this video was North Korea propaganda. It came from the White House (Washington Post link): Reporters crowded into a Singapore auditorium Tuesday, expecting President Trump to walk out and announce the results of his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Suddenly, two huge screens on either side of the empty podium came to life. Soaring music boomed over the speakers, and the reporters were bombarded with a montage portraying North Korea as some sort of paradise.

Golden sunrises. Gleaming skylines and high-speed trains. Children skipping through Kim Il Sung square in Pyongyang, North Korean flags waving between images of Egyptian pyramids, the Taj Mahal and the Lincoln Memorial. In a split-screen shot, Kim Jong Un waved to an adoring crowd while President Trump stood beside him with his thumb in the air. The pair appeared over and over again, like running mates in a campaign video.

The film went on like this for several minutes, with brief interludes of missiles, soldiers and warships interrupting the fanfare. Some journalists, unable to understand the Korean-language narration, assumed they were watching one of Pyongyang's infamous propaganda films. “What country are we in?” asked a reporter from the filing center.

But then the video looped, playing this time in English. And then Trump walked onto the stage and explained that the film was not North Korean propaganda. It had been made in America, by or on the orders of his White House, for the benefit of Kim. “I hope you liked it,” Trump told the reporters. “I thought it was good. I thought it was interesting enough to show. ... And I think he loved it.”

Kim Jong Un Offers to Host Peace Talks Between United States and Canada (The Borowitz Report link): One day before his summit with Donald J. Trump, the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, has offered to host peace talks between the United States and Canada.

Speaking to reporters at his hotel in Singapore, Kim said that the rising tensions between the North American neighbors were posing an “intolerable threat to world peace.”

In addition to offering to host U.S.-Canada talks in Pyongyang, Kim urged the immediate creation of a demilitarized zone along the border separating the two hostile nations.

“In exchange for Canadian Mounties agreeing to stand down on their side of the border, the United States, in turn, would dismantle its nuclear weapons,” Kim said.

Although stating that “North Korea stands ready and willing to be an honest broker” in peace talks between the two countries, he urged Trump to dial back the “inflammatory rhetoric” that he aimed at Canadians over the weekend.

“Violent language and threats have no place in international diplomacy,” Kim said.

Trump’s Singapore Summit Was a Bust—for the U.S. (The Daily Beast link): The only language on ‘denuclearization’ the two sides agreed on in their joint statement was complete pablum, and it puts the future relationship with South Korea in doubt.

The high-stakes diplomacy between the United States and North Korea has come to a wrap in Singapore. The summit—the first-ever between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader—stayed mostly on-script. But there’s little question that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un got the better end of the bargain out of the meeting; for Donald Trump, like previous U.S. presidents, the prospect of setting North Korea along the path to disarmament remains remote.

From the onset of the summit, which began with the much-anticipated first handshake between the two leaders at the Capella hotel in Singapore, it became clear that no matter what, North Korea would walk away with important propaganda coup.

EU Official Tweets Photo Of Trump And Merkel: ‘Tell Us What Vladimir Has On You’ (Talking Points Memo link): A European Union official tweeted a now-viral photo of a stare-down between President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, joking that Russian President Vladimir Putin has dirt on Trump.

“Just tell us what Vladimir has on you. Maybe we can help,” former prime minister of Belgium Guy Verhofstaft tweeted. The photo was originally posted to Merkel’s Instagram, where it was described as a “spontaneous meeting between two working sessions.”

Verhofstaft was likely referencing the U.S. special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and salacious allegations in the Christoper Steele dossier about Putin possessing incriminating information on Trump.

The quip follows an explosive weekend of meetings between Trump and the rest of the G-7 group in Canada, which ended with Trump agreeing to some language on trade but then pulling out of signing a joint agreement, leaving the summit early and tweeting an unhinged rant of attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump Insists Parents of Fallen Korean War Soldiers Begged Him to Bring Sons Home (Mediaite link): President Donald Trump made the rather ridiculous claim that parents of fallen Korean War soldiers came up to him on the campaign trail and begged for their sons’ remains to be brought home.

Yet, here is the thing. The math is not exactly in his favor. The Korean War ended in 1953. While at close to 100 years of age they technically could still be alive, it is unlikely that they are attending a campaign event calling for the return of their sons’ bodies. There is also the problem that according to Trump’s account, it is not just one very elderly parent of a Korean war veteran, but more than one, as evidenced by use of the word “we.”

“When you can, president, we’d love our son to be brought back home — you know, the remains,” he recalled them saying, despite the fact he just said he was on the campaign trail and not POTUS yet.

AP FACT CHECK: Trump falsely declares post-summit victory (MSN.com link): President Donald Trump falsely declared victory after his meeting with North Korea's leader and twisted history in celebrating Tuesday's summit with Kim Jong Un.

A look at some of Trump's statements and how they compare with the facts:

TRUMP'S TWEETS: "Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea ... Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea. President (Barack) Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer - sleep well tonight!"

THE FACTS: Trump is wrong to suggest North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat. The five-hour summit did give Trump and Kim a chance to express optimism and make of show of their new relationship. But the two countries didn't nail down how and when the North might denuclearize or shed light on the unspecified "protections" Trump pledged to Kim and his government.

Those details could prove major sticking points in the future while North Korea is believed to maintain a nuclear arsenal capable of threatening the U.S mainland. Independent experts say the North could have enough fissile material for anywhere between about a dozen and 60 nuclear bombs, and last year it tested long-range missiles that could reach the U.S.

Trump is also wrong to say there was an assumption before he took office that the United States would go to war. It wasn't until Trump's tenure that North Korea began testing an intercontinental ballistic missile and the bellicose rhetoric between the two leaders ramped up. Fears of conflict were particularly acute after Trump called Kim "Rocket Man" and Kim pledged to "tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire."

Trump-Kim Summit: Dennis Rodman-Backed Cryptocurrency Potcoin Soars After Meeting (Forbes link): Potcoin, a cryptocurrency geared towards the booming cannabis industry and its fast-growing community, is the first winner from today's historic deal between U.S. president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. The Trump-Kim summit comes after months of negotiations between the two countries, but it all might never have happened if not for retired U.S. basketball player-turned diplomat Dennis Rodman, who is on good terms with both Trump and Kim.

Rodman, while not formally invited to the Singapore summit this week, arrived in the city-state promising to "give what support is needed" to the two world leaders. Sporting a shirt blazoned with the potcoin logo, surrounded by the slogan “peace starts in Singapore,” Rodman pushed through crowds of reporters and gave a rambling, incoherent interview to CNN.

As a result of his appearance in Singapore the Potcoin price jumped by 20% last night, adding $4 million to its market capitalization, according to CoinMarketCap data.

Trump calls media America's 'biggest enemy' in angry tweet about North Korea summit coverage (Aol News link): President Donald Trump is apparently not happy about the way his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is being depicted by the media and on Tuesday called "FAKE NEWS" America's "biggest enemy."

"So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have 'begged' for this deal-looked like war would break out," Trump tweeted. "Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!"

His screed came after earlier tweets in which he made the dubious claim that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat.

Trump met with Kim on Tuesday in Singapore, where the two leaders signed a vaguely worded agreement that has been criticized by members of both political parties.

  1. What I find as scary as having a president who makes up facts, who feels he can do anything he wants and not get called on it (which you pointed out, Mod), are his followers who think he can do no wrong - some are even college graduates and should know better. One of my friends, "a life long Republican" who is also appalled by this guy, reminded me about how Trump bought three thriving casinos in Atlantic City. Under him, they all went bankrupt, and he told all the employees who were out of a job, "too bad." What about Trump University and all those poor students who got nothing. Where is Congress - aren't there any members who actually have integrity?

  2. South Korean newspaper slams Trump-Kim summit: Diplomacy for kindergarten

    A prominent South Korean newspaper in an editorial Wednesday said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “got everything he wanted” in his historic summit with President Trump.

    The Chosun Ilbo, one of the major newspapers in South Korea, blasted Trump in an editorial for not doing enough to secure the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

    The editorial noted a lack of specifics in denuclearizing North Korea mentioned in the agreement signed by the two countries and noted Trump's mentioning of possible hotel developments in the country, writing that “there is no deadline to be found anywhere, and instead Trump is talking about real estate development on North Korea's coast.”

    The newspaper also hit Trump for agreeing to end military exercises with South Korea, saying that past drills have proved to be “an effective means of pressuring the North.”

    “But Trump gave North Korea a major gift even before it has taken any steps toward complete denuclearization. And in the joint agreement, it is Trump rather than the U.S. which is the party guaranteeing North Korea's regime safety,” the editorial reads. “This is diplomacy for the kindergarten.”

    2. UPDATE: New York files suit against Trump, alleging his charity engaged in 'illegal conduct' -- The New York attorney general on Thursday filed suit against President Trump and his three eldest children alleging "persistently illegal conduct" at the president's personal charity, saying Trump repeatedly misused the nonprofit -- to pay off his businesses' creditors, to decorate one of his golf clubs and to stage a multimillion dollar giveaway at his 2016 campaign events.

      In the suit, filed Thursday morning, attorney general Barbara Underwood asked a state judge to dissolve the Donald J. Trump Foundation. She asked that its remaining $1 million in assets be distributed to other charities and that Trump be forced to pay at least $2.8 million in restitution and penalties.

      Underwood also asks that Trump be banned from leading any other New York nonprofit for 10 years -- seeking to apply a penalty usually reserved for the operators of small-time charity frauds to the president of the United States.

      In the suit, Underwood noted that Trump had already paid more than $330,000 in reimbursements and penalty taxes since 2016. New York state began probing the Trump Foundation in response to an investigation by The Washington Post.

  25. New York's high court rejects Trump's effort to dismiss suit from 'Apprentice' contestant -- New York’s highest court ruled Thursday that a defamation lawsuit brought against President Trump by a former "Apprentice" contestant may continue, raising the specter of the president being deposed in the case.

    Summer Zervos, a former contestant on the president’s reality TV show, sued Trump days before his inauguration last year. She accused him of groping her and then defaming her during the 2016 presidential election. Trump and his attorneys have long denied the allegations.

    New York’s top court, the Court of Appeals, rejected an effort by Trump’s legal team to block discovery in the case while Trump is president. The decision allows information gathering to continue, and moves the case closer to a point where Trump could be deposed.

  32. Longtime Ohio conservative commentator: 'In 2018 I will vote for Democrats'

    A longtime conservative commentator and former Republican politician says he's voting for Democrats in this year's midterm elections.

    Phil Heimlich, the host of conservative talk show "Hard Truths with Phil Heimlich" who served on the Cincinnati City Council from 1993 to 2001 and the Hamilton County Commission from 2003 to 2006, wrote in The Cincinnati Enquirer on Thursday that, despite being a Republican for decades, he's casting his vote for Democrats in November.

    "I’m scared — scared of losing our rights to free speech, fair elections and the rule of law," Heimlich writes. "You see, we’re witnessing a dangerous trend in which dictators come to power in once-promising democracies and crush dissent."

    Heimlich says President Trump lacks respect for democratic values, and pointed out how Trump admires people like Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, two leaders who have cracked down on independent media in their respective countries.
