Nuclear Talks with North Korea May Fall Apart Due to “Atmosphere of Distrust”

Published

on

According to a high-ranking official in the North Korean government, leader Kim Jong Un is having second thoughts about continuing negotiations with the U.S. over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

North Korea’s Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui blamed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser, John Bolton, “for an atmosphere of distrust surrounding the negotiations during a press conference.”

Choe warned that the “gangster-like stand of the U.S. will eventually put the situation in danger.”

She also added: “Personal relations between the two supreme leaders are still good and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful.”

According to Reuters, Chose said “We have no intention to yield to the U.S. demands [at the Vietnam summit] in any form, nor are we willing to engage in negotiations of this kind.”

These comments came in the wake of last month’s summit in Hanoi, in which both sides left the summit without an agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula or provide further relief from U.S. sanctions.

Trump told reports at the White House last week that American relations with North Korea continue to be productive.

Trump said, “Well, time will tell, but I have a feeling that our relationship with North Korea — Kim Jong Un and myself — Chairman Kim — I think it’s a very good one.”

With these rumors of negotiations breaking down, there is legitimate credence to the theory that John Bolton has worked to derail Trump’s negotiations.

Frankly, Trump has not done a great job in keeping neocons like John Bolton out of his circle. This was on display with Bolton’s increasingly hostile rhetoric towards Venezuela.

At the end of the day, powerful foreign policy interests still have tremendous pull in DC. Institutional inertia is a hallmark of politics, and Trump’s foreign policy agenda is witnessing this firsthand.

As the pillar of the Executive Branch, Trump should reassert his authority and tell the rest of the neocon cabal surrounding him to beat it.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
