    How an Americanist devoted to destroying international alliances became the US envoy to the UNIn the heat of the battle over the Florida vote after the 2000 US presidential election, a burly, mustachioed man burst into the room where the ballots for Miami-Dade County were being tabulated, like John Wayne barging into a saloon for a shoot-out. "I'm with the Bush-Cheney team, and I'm here to stop the count," drawled John Bolton. And those ballots from Miami-Dade were not counted.Now that same John Bolton has been named by President Bush as the US ambassador to the UN. "If I were...
  • Kim Jong-un’s Sister Demands July 4 DVDs, Rejects Trump-Kim Summits in Bizarre Rant

    Kim Yo-jong, sister to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, published a poorly written “press statement” Friday praising Kim’s relationship with President Donald Trump, rejecting further summits between them, and requesting DVD copies of Fourth of July celebration footage. Kim Yo-jong’s statement appeared to be a response to speculation triggered by leftist South Korean President Moon Jae-in that Trump and her brother may soon host another summit to ease tensions between the two countries, which have technically been at war for 70 years. During the course of publicizing his book against Trump, former National Security Advisor John Bolton also hinted at...

The “clear guidance” politicians claim to dispense and “the truth” my friend wants to learn are not rooted in the principles of human flourishing. My friend is waiting for a government official to blow the all-clear whistle. My friend doesn’t want to believe experts are as fallible as he is, and that the prevailing scientific consensus may be false. ... In North...

  • Bolton’s Fears Misplaced: Overwhelming US Military Power Will Deter North Korea Indefinitely

    Townhall.com ^ | June 24, 2020 | Daniel L. Davis
    In his new tell-all book, former National Security Advisor John Bolton claims the threat from North Korea today is “absolutely greater” than it was in 2016. One of Bolton’s chief complaints about Trump’s actions over the past two years was that he “gave away” joint drills that were “critical” to defend South Korea. Bolton, like many in Washington, sees great value in these military exercises—but this is a flawed understanding of how deterrence works. It is not regular drills that ensure U.S. deterrence of North Korea, but the overall capacity of our muscular, comprehensive military power in comparison to the...

    North Korea said Wednesday leader Kim Jong Un suspended a planned military retaliation against South Korea, in an apparent slowing of the pressure campaign it has waged against its rival amid stalled nuclear negotiations with the Trump administration. Last week, the North had declared relations with the South as fully ruptured, destroyed an inter-Korean liaison office in its territory and threatened unspecified military action to censure Seoul for a lack of progress in bilateral cooperation and for activists floating anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border. Analysts say North Korea, after weeks deliberately raising tensions, may be pulling away just enough to...

    South Korea slammed former White House national security adviser John Bolton for distorting the facts regarding nuclear talks between leaders of the U.S. and the Koreas in his forthcoming memoir. South Korea’s national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, said Bolton’s description of top-level consultation in his new book “The Room Where It Happened,” is not accurate. “It does not reflect accurate facts and substantially distorts facts,” South Korea’s national security adviser, said in a statement, according to Reuters. He also accused Bolton of "being inaccurate" and "distorting the reality," according to The Washington Post. According to excerpts of Bolton’s book published...

    Bill Clinton's triumphant return from North Korea with two rescued US journalists had Hollywood written all over it -- from the Burbank airport to the big-time producer who bankrolled the expedition to the celebrity public-relations firm that orchestrated the homecoming. A key player in Clinton's high-flying diplomatic mission to rescue Laura Ling and Euna Lee was entertainment mogul Steve Bing, a longtime "Friend of Bill" who lent the ex-president his private Boeing 737. The multimillionaire mogul paid about $200,000 in fuel and other costs that came with the trans-Pacific flight.

    A statement from North Korea’s embassy in Moscow observing the 70th anniversary of the still-ongoing Korean War this weekend threatened a “sensational event” leading to the destruction of the United States. North Korea routinely threatened nuclear attacks on America for much of the past decade, peaking in intensity around 2016-2017. Pyongyang’s communist regime issued many of those threats in the form of videos simulating nuclear attacks on Washington, DC, and other major American cities. Following its most recent nuclear attack in September 2017, however, the United Nations approved of strict sanctions on North Korea that have crippled its economy and...

    As the top human rights body of the United Nations seeks international scrutiny of systemic racism in response to the recent killings of African Americans by police, some countries are wondering if there is a double standard at play for America rather than the ways other countries are targeted for human rights violations because of dehumanizing their people. A draft resolution, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, singles out the United States and could become the centerpiece of a hastily scheduled debate by the Human Rights Council in Geneva on Wednesday. The text calls for a...

    North Korea announced Wednesday it would deploy troops to the Kaesong Industrial Zone and Mt. Kumgang tourist area, locations that were once the sites of joint economic ventures with South Korea, as Pyongyang continued to ratchet up tensions a day after it demolished an inter-Korean liaison office. The North will also reinstall guard posts that had been removed from the Demilitarized Zone and conduct military drills in border areas, according to a statement by a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army "Civil police posts that had been withdrawn from the Demilitarized Zone under the north-south agreement...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea has confirmed it destroyed an inter-Korean liaison office on Tuesday, as it continued to dial up pressure against rival South Korea amid stalled nuclear negotiations with the Trump administration. Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency said the North destroyed the office to correspond with the “mindset of the enraged people to surely force human scum and those, who have sheltered the scum, to pay dearly for their crimes,” apparently referring to North Korean defectors who for years have floated anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border.

    KIM JONG-UN's sister is taking a leading role in a new, more hard-line pressure campaign against South Korea - highlighting what analysts say is a substantive policy role that goes beyond being her brother's assistant. Believed to be in her early 30s, Kim Yo Jong is the only close relative of the North Korean leader to play a public role in politics. Kim Yo Jung has moved to the forefront since her brother’s mysterious disappearance last month. And now she has unleashed a brutal attack on neighbours South Korea, just after the rogue state severed contact with Seoul. Kim Yo-jong's...

    During the 2018-2019 flurry of international diplomacy, Kim Yo Jong garnered global attention by leading a delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. Later, she was often seen dashing about to make sure everything went well for her older brother, including holding an ashtray for him at a train station on his way to a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Vietnam. But this year, Kim has taken on a more public policy role, cementing her status as an influential political player in her own right. Kim has worked behind the scenes in North Korea’s propaganda agencies,...

    America’s missile defense programs are at a critical moment in history. While the COVID-19 pandemic has seized the global conversation, our country’s adversaries and rogue actors across the earth are taking advantage of the worldwide chaos by quietly bolstering their offensive capabilities. America must respond by ensuring we prioritize funding to adequately prepare our missile defenses. In spite of the fact that coronavirus cases in Iran continue to rise – just topping 100,000 according to one estimate – hostile actions by the Iranian military have not let up. In late April Iran’s Revolutionary Guard launched the country’s first military satellite...
