    Following his return to South Korea after a third summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, President Moon Jae-in told reporters he would like to see all countries that participated in the Korean War sign a formal peace treaty by the end of this year. Technically, the two Koreas, the United States, and China all remain at war, which began on the peninsula in June 1950 when North Korea invaded the South. An armistice — a cease-fire agreement — was signed in July 1953. To officially end it, all four countries would need to sign a treaty. In speaking to...

    Sen. Tom Cotton says that the Trump administration should unilaterally withdraw the United States from its “Open Skies” treaty, which governs how each country conducts aerial surveillance regarding military activities and forces as a means of assurance. Entered into force on 1 January 2002, the treaty has 34 signatories, but the Arkansas Republican says that it is favoring Russia to the detriment of the United States.
  • Trump should submit Korean deal to Senate as treaty for ratification: House leader McCarthy

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Saturday that President Trump should submit any eventual deal with North Korea to the Senate for approval as a treaty, saying lawmakers should have a full say on the matter. The California Republican said President Obama bungled the Iran nuclear deal negotiations by not treating them a treaty but instead as an executive agreement. That made it easy for Mr. Trump to revoke U.S. participation in the deal earlier this year. Mr. McCarthy told MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt the treaty route is a way of not only making the deal lasting, but also of countering...

    Asked the right question, a suspect will often incriminate himself. Asked why the Iran deal isn't a treaty, Secretary of State John Kerry basically answered it's because we've killed the Constitution. Secretary Kerry, testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday, pumped another bullet into the legal foundation of the American system of government ratified by We the People nearly 227 years ago. Asked by Rep. Reid Ribble, R-Wis., "Why is this not considered a treaty?" — which would mean 67 senators would have to agree before the Iran deal would take effect — former Sen. Kerry's startling and...

    With Trump reportedly set to leave the Paris Climate Deal, this has prompted one of Trump’s “advisors”, Elon Musk, to tweet moments ago that he has done “all he can” to advise “directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils” that the U.S. remain in the Paris climate deal. And, in response to a Twitter user asking him what he will do if Trump decides to leave the climate deal, Musk tweets “we will have no choice but to depart councils.”(snip)

    International governments have made a power play against Donald Trump by ratifying an international climate deal earlier than expected, effectively preventing him from “canceling” the deal as he has promised to do. The European Union’s Tuesday decision to join the Paris climate deal will push the deal over the threshold for ratification; it will formally take effect in 30 days. That means Trump, should he be elected president in November, could not “cancel” or renegotiate the terms of the agreement. President Obama committed the United States to reduce its emissions by 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025 as part...

    MOSCOW–Russia further curtailed its cooperation with the United States in nuclear energy on Wednesday, suspending a research agreement and terminating one on uranium conversion, two days after the Kremlin shelved a plutonium pact with Washington. It also said it was terminating for the same reasons an agreement between its nuclear corporation Rosatom and the U.S. Department of Energy on feasibility studies into conversion of Russian research reactors to low-enriched uranium. On Monday, President Vladimir Putin suspended a treaty with Washington on cleaning up weapons grade plutonium, signaling he is willing to use nuclear disarmament as a new bargaining chip in...

    The reporter asks White House spokesliar Josh Earnest questions regarding the determination of Hussein Obama to force through what should be titled the Corporate Government Fascism Enablement And Benefits Act, what is deceptively marketed as a trade agreement, TPP. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is strongly opposed by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton claims to have flip-flopped her position and now be opposed to it. That’s a point that Donald Trump made in the first debate, that she was initially in favor of it and her newfound dedication to its defeat is tepid at best. He also voiced his belief that if...

    This past January, as the Iran nuclear deal was implemented, the Obama administration justified its eagerness to end sanctions by asserting that Tehran had scrupulously kept all its promises. But it turns out that the demands placed on Iran weren’t as strict as we were led to believe. The United States granted “exemptions” to the Islamist regime in order to more quickly end the international restrictions on doing business with it. These exemptions were revealed today in a Reuters story based on a report by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security. The institute’s sources were highly placed Western...

    The chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee denounced on Thursday the anticipated move by President Obama to enter into the Paris climate accord, accusing him of working around Congress on a deal doomed to failure. Sen. Jim Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican, made his comments based on the widely expected announcement that Mr. Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping will jointly ratify this week the Paris Agreement, negotiated in December by 195 nations as part of the U.N. Conference of Parties (COP21). “This latest announcement is the president attempting to once again give the international community the appearance that...

The lawmakers are pressing Obama to fire deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes following revelations he and other officials “spearheaded the charge to mislead elected lawmakers and the American people about the Iran nuclear deal and the negotiations that led to...

    Are we be better off today with the thousands of U.S. factories that have shut down and millions of American jobs lost and the trillions in accumulated debt that we've run up in the last couple decades of free trade? And, of course, this is due to many factors including such things as: Big government Regulations High taxes Unions driving up costs Cheap labor overseas Fewer regulations overseas Lower taxes overseas Trade deficits etc., And doubly exasperated by poor trade deals? Or is this all a myth? Are we better off with cheaper foreign (cheap) goods, fewer U.S. factories, fewer...
