I think Moon is giving Trump one last chance to get a deal Trump and Kim can both live with. However, I more than suspect that Moon will make his own deal with Kim if Trump can't pull off a deal in a reasonable time. Moon knows that the two Korea's can't go on as they have and that they need to unify regardless of what any other nation or nations may or may not want. I believe Kim is smart enough to know all of that too.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in told U.S. President Donald Trump in a call on Tuesday that his country is willing to open economic engagement with North Korea as a "concession" if it will hasten Pyongyang's denuclearization, Moon's office said. [Source]

“Bernie Sanders endorsing Crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs,” Trump tweeted.
“Trump said tonight, ’We are born free, and we will stay free,’” Sanders said. “I say to Trump: People are not truly free when they can’t afford health care, prescription drugs, or a place to live. People are not free when they cannot retire with dignity or feed their families.” [Source]

"Thousands of Poles risked being executed by the Nazis to help or shelter Jews. ...
"... Shamir, the late Israeli prime minister, had said Poles killed his father. [Source]"
Shamir is one of the racist Zionists who said Blacks are monkeys. He was also an open terrorist. He believed all Goyim (non-Jews) are a subspecies, a different race, and inherently inferior to all Jews by reason of blood, DNA, and the like. He was a Jewish supremacist.

Spare us all from Donald Trump's lying, alternate-universe imaginings about Cuba and Venezuela.
Honestly, just exactly how stupid, ignorant, and sealed off does Donald Trump think the American public is? Cuba controls Venezuela's military. I burst out laughing the instant I saw that.
At this point and as much as I hate militarism, Nicolas Maduro should invite military forces from China, Russia, India, Iran, and any other friendly nation, to come to Venezuela as peacekeeping forces: a coalition against US imperialism.
The US bypasses the UN when it wants. It's time other nations collectively stand against US economic and militaristic imperialism. Where and when better than right now in Venezuela?

Nicaragua is one of a shrinking number of countries in Central America that still offer U.S.-ally Taiwan diplomatic support over China, which considers Taiwan sacred [hogwash; Xi is an atheist] Chinese territory.
China and Taiwan have for years traded accusations of "dollar diplomacy" as they seek support around the world, offering generous aid packages in return for diplomatic recognition.
Self-ruled and democratic Taiwan now has formal relations with only 17 countries, almost all of them small and less developed nations in Central America and the Pacific, including Belize and Nauru. [Source]
"Self-ruled and democratic Taiwan" is correct. Nation-states are shameful that recognize the claim by the totalitarian dictatorship of China to ownership of Taiwan.
Democratic Taiwan is correct to monetarily support Nicaragua against anti-democratic imperialism.

We do not live under populism or democracy in the USA. We live under a self-appointed and trickster corporatist-capitalist elite lording it over the entire rest of the people.
The vast, vast majority of people incorrectly define the term "populism." Even so-called experts do. Some do it intentionally.
Populism is for the people as a whole (regardless of any other classifications) against 1) a self-appointed elite lording it over them or 2) an elite who've tricked the people into agreeing to be lorded over by them.
Populism is always democracy. It is not the people choosing one or a few to lord it over them where the people give up their power and authority to remove or replace those chosen to lead. It is not a populist move to give up populism. It is an anti-populist move to give up democracy. It is not a democratic move to vote to get rid of democracy. Democracy furthers democracy. It does not extinguish itself. Any move that extinguishes populism or democracy is anti-democratic.
I am a populist, a progressive, a democrat, a socialist, a Christian. I strive to be consistent in these things to the best of my God-given ability.
We speak to, Alan Macleod, author of ‘Bad News from Venezuela’ about the media’s 20 year long war on Venezuela. He debunks claims made in Western media over the Venezuelan Crisis, the election of Nicolas Maduro, Hugo Chavez and discusses the racist undertones of their coverage.
Has America Always Embraced Capitalism?
As recent polls have shown, millennials have become increasingly critical of capitalism and increasingly supportive of socialism. Symbolized by the popularity of politicians including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, and the rise of the Democratic Socialists of America, this younger generation appears to be looking for a different way forward.
This is complicated by the fact that many Americans have little idea what socialism means, though more often than not the term is used to refer to increased corporate taxes and better welfare programs rather than the rearrangement of our social lives away from profit maximization and wage labor towards cooperation and the collective management of work.

This is an old story that each generation learns for itself: the Democratic Party cannot be remade into a people's party. It has been a big business party from its founding as a slaveholders party in the early 1800s, when slaves were the most valuable "property" in the country, to its Wall Street funding today. Lance Selfa, in "The Democrats: A Critical History," shows how the Democratic Party has consistently betrayed the needs of ordinary people while pursuing an agenda favorable to Wall Street and US imperialism. He shows how political movements from the union and workers movements to the civil rights movement to the antiwar movement, among others, have been betrayed and undermined by the Democratic Party.
Enacting a Green New Deal. The Green New deal has been advocated for since 2006, first by Global Greens, then by Green Party candidates at the state level and then by Jill Stein in her two presidential runs. The issue is now part of the political agenda thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She and Senator Ed Markey led the introduction of a framework for a Green New Deal, which is supported by more than 50 Democrats including many presidential candidates.
