White House Releases Agenda For Tomorrow's Historic Summit

The White House has released the much-anticipated agenda of Tuesday's Trump-Kim summit - which will be a one-day event after all - and discloses that Trump will meet with the North Korean leader tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m., after which the two presidents (or dictators according to Abby Huntsman) will participate in a one-on-one meeting, with translators only and no media, an expanded bilateral meeting, and a working lunch.

The U.S. delegation at tomorrow's expanded meeting will also include Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Ambassador Sung Kim, and National Security Council Senior Director for Asia Matt Pottinger will join for the working lunch.

And echoing Pompeo's earlier comments that talks are going quicker than expected, Trump - just like Kim - is expected to depart Singapore tomorrow morning east coast time: “At the conclusion of the summit, President Trump will participate in a media availability before departing tomorrow at approximately 8 p.m. for the United States”.

Instead of tit-for-tat tariffs, there must have been far bigger issues on the table that the G7 leaders were arguing about which would explain the unprecedented and surprising hostilities and insults between the various leaders. 

We know that the EU nations led by Germany and France want to trade oil in Euros and to trade with Iran. We know that in this respect the EU does not want to pull out of the Iran nuclear agreement. We know that the EU is fed up with the sanctions against Russia and that they are hurting the EU economically. We know that on all these issues the position of the US is a polar opposite. We know that the US went into the the G7 talks not just to balance trade, but was complaining that Canada and other G7 nations were not paying their fair share of the military "defence" expenses.

We also know that none of economic issues between the G7 nations could be dealt in insolation from the other above-noted, highly-charged political issues facing all of these nations at this time. 

Another fact is that US foreign policy in dealing with "friendly" nations which do not go along with what it wants, is to fuel opposition political movements and to use tariffs and sanctions. With respect to the EU, that appears to be what is going on right now.

The US has proven to be no friend of the EU and regards the Euro being used to buy fuel as an attack on the US petrodollar.  No doubt the power elites of Western establishment who are above the G7 leaders and the Bilderberg group will be deciding this week exactly how far they will go in supporting either side. Unless, the outcome of G7 meeting was just theatre for our sake and the leaders were mainly being briefed for other more important things, like a war, then we can presume there is real division in the West, and in this respect much of what the real power brokers of the Western establishment will decide to do regarding the Euro vrs. the US petrodollar may turn on the negotiations this week between the US and NK.

The US desperately needs a victory with NK coming in from the cold, or at least appearing to come in from the cold to what many nations now see as a waning US sphere of economic influence as compared to China and the rest of Asia. The EU is out of the picture to NK, but China and Russia are very much in the picture. If NK decides to go more in the US and SK direction it will boost the stature of the US and the US petrodollar, and may affect what the banksters and Western oligarchs want to do regarding the continuation of sanctions and hostilities regarding Iran and Russia.  

If NK decides it is safer and more in its long-range interests to sidle up to China and Russia based on indications that the US business empire and the US is unreliable both with respect to its debts and its promises, and that perhaps it is beyond its zenith, in comparison to an ascending China, it may throw in with China also making stronger ties with Russia, rejecting the US and SK overtures. However, NK also fears being swallowed up by China just like Tibet, so it is likely not to give any power block, including the US and SK everything they want.

The photo showing Chump seated facing Murkle and Dacron at the G7 meeting with BoltOn to Chump's right actually represented a session where BoltOn was giving the EU their marching orders while Chump just grinned away. The EU is not impressed as they make significant trade with Iran and the US makes about zero. The EU will pay the price for BoltOn's intransigence. It may be the breaking point for US/EU relationships. It also shows who was running the show for the US at the G7.

Bottom line is that the EU, Canadian and US globalists do not want the Trump administration to get any credit and succeed in bringing North Korea in from the cold. 

Until Trump came along, the globalists in the EU and in the US had been busy trying to deconstruct the US and other nations to supplant many of their national powers into their proposed One World Government mainly through the UN.  In the process they also proposed replacing the US petrodollar as the leading world reserve currency with another reserve currency out of the Western establishment-proposed One World Bank or out of their Bank of International Settlements. It is doubtful they have abandoned their plans in such a short period of time.

The fight goes on and the US globalists are now afraid that Trump will  increase US global stature by shoring  up US influence in the Orient and particularly by a “deal” with North Korea.

The US Democrats according the Bloomberg are imposing near “impossible” conditions of the Trump administration for any such deal, demanding total nuclear disarmament and are afraid that the Trump administration will take anything.

Did you vote for him for this reason? Most of us voted for him to stop the flow of wage-undercutting, welfare-aided, illegal immigration and to reduce the flow of legal immigration in a country with 95 million out-of-the-workforce citizens of working age, 78 million “employed” people who are pieceworkers doing gig jobs and 42 million womb-productive citizens / noncitizens who are so underemployed that they are supplementing part-time work that keeps them under the rock-bottom-low income limits for welfare programs with free EBT groceries & other freebies from Bigly Government.

I guess that's why Robert DeNiro had his "sophisticated" thought process arriving where it did. He supports getting people on unemployment, apparently. Hollywood's job is to believe the gov fraud numbers and support the path to self destruction. For me, I was hoping Trump would greatly reel in the military and bring it home. It looks like there won't be much of a choice regarding that anyway when Medicare and Social Security is insolvent.

One of two things will happen. If China sincerely promises to destroy Walmart if North Korea is attacked, then NK might spring for it. If NK just says "no we must keep out weapons" (the only sensible course unless China is involved), then Trump will bolt, and that will make him kind of look like shit, following on the heels of the G7 train wreck. We shall see.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. What happened at the G7 also plays into the summit with North Korea. Words such as negotiating with jello, shape-shifting, emotionally unstable are just a few of the terms recently used to describe Trump's negotiation style. whether you like the man or not, Trump understands both the power of this negotiating.

Being able to navigate around obstacles to reach a positive objective that works for all parties involved has a great deal of merit and getting a better price when buying or selling an item quickly adds to your bottom-line.

Life is a giant negotiation where we constantly bargain with people in an effort to reach our goals. Like him or not, his skills got Trump to where he is today. The article below delves into the often undervalued fundamentals, psychological skills, strategies, and the structured approach that enhance the chance of reaching a positive result.

The Dem's and Press just hate this, for Trump gets all the attention and if he succeeds the Dem's and Press will go in full meltdown, Schumer and Pelosi will be out there speechless and CNN, MSNBC, JOE and Mika will be in full melt down

So, who is more likely to have a regime change?  Kim or Trump?  Or, Maybe it will be a shoot-out at the OK corral?  Or maybe Kim will personally hand over his nuclear weapon to Trump, and pull the string to the actuator?

Their agenda is to take whatever deal they can get and drive it home as a win. So far Trump has given Kin Dumb Trump everything he wanted, smooth move Gilligan.

#1 Rule of negotiation--Always ask for more than you expect to get.

  • You might just get it,
  • It sets the tone of the negotiation.

"Kim, I want you to stop making atomic bombs, and I want you to blow me."

"No blowjob?  OK, how about you stop making atomic bombs?"

"Deal"

Kim has already been told what to do by China. China wants U.S. military off the peninsula, a blending of North and South and eventually a takeover of the whole thing.

Sorry that is the MSM look at it.  Having been to Korea, what China doesnt want is a very low cost production center that is what NK would be if they had to find jobs for their army.  China wants the US to be tied down and the NORKs to be in a friendly army.  They dont want them making crap for wallymart and scamazon at prices below China.

What really needs to happen for any agreement to work, is for the U.S. to pull out of South Korea entirely.  The South Koreans want this too, and it's surprising that South Korea hasn't told the U.S. to get out yet. Maybe they will, eventually? Or, perhaps they are much like the Japanese and just being customarily polite?  The Japanese have the same problems with the U.S. being in Japan.  The U.S. is really not welcomed in Japan, but the Japanese say little about it.  

TeraByte Mon, 06/11/2018 - 09:01 Permalink

Not to unappreciate this effort for a deal, but odds are no good, because Kim´s regime will require real guarantees that abandoning their nuclear deterrent does not lead a quick toppling of the government like in Libya. The leader may be a fatso, but not at all so dim he did not understand the equation.

As the summit grows near it is important to remember that North Korea claims a long list of grievances against America dating back to right after World War II. Sadly the validity of such claims are supported by detailed reports from two well-respected groups.

To be quite frank I was appalled at the allegations levied against America but knowing how facts are twisted and propaganda is used by governments I should not have been. The cruelty of war is often swept under the rug or justified in many ways.

Still, if any validity at all exists to the claims made in the 1952 IADL and the 2001 Korea International War Crimes Tribunal reports some of North Korea's fear and distrust of America becomes more understandable. More about these claims in the article below.
