When President Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12, 2018, the world was understandably optimistic that both sides had taken a step back from the brink of war and that a new foundation for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a formal end to the 1950–53 Korean War might be at hand.

The summit itself went smoothly, and there were reassuring statements and press releases saying that indeed a breakthrough had been achieved, although further talks would be needed to hammer out details and produce definitive signed agreements. At the same time, many analysts, myself included, were skeptical that North Korea was dealing in good faith. It was entirely possible that they were merely posturing and playing for time while they built new nuclear testing facilities (their former facility had collapsed due to overuse in test explosions) and pursued hidden research and enrichment that did not require conspicuous missile launches.

In the month since the summit, the evidence is that North Korea is not dealing in good faith. This article reveals new intelligence that says North Korea is continuing to produce nuclear fuel and has no intention of fully giving up its nuclear weapons capability. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has returned to North Korea to pursue the ongoing negotiations. No doubt he will confront North Korea with this new intelligence.

Hopefully these news reports just reflect bargaining chips in a tough negotiation. If not, the U.S. and North Korea will resume the countdown to war that was halted last December.

Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation.

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
