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.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
