Two years ago on July 10, 2016, Seth Rich was shot in the back in Washington D.C. Seth Rich, who at the time was a DNC staffer, was murdered around 4:15AM in what police called a "botched robbery".
Since Seth's murder, there have been many theories on who killed him and why. The leading theory, other than the "official story", is Seth Rich was the Wikileaks source that was providing DNC and Clinton emails to Wikileaks.
An Infowars story from 2017 cited a detective named Rod Wheeler who has been investigating this case, and was hired by the family. Wheeler appeared on Fox News's Hannity and said the following: "I called the police department back in March." "I didn't hear anything for 2-3 days." "The police department did not call me back because someone, a high-ranking official at the DNC-check this out- a high ranking official at the DNC-when I called the police department, they got that information and called the Rich family wanting to know, why was I snooping around?".
Wheeler also said: "We actually have a statement from the FBI telling us to 'contact the D.C Police- the D.C Police says, 'Contact the FBI'".
Wheeler would then go on to say that a "very credible" federal investigator told him that he had seen Seth Rich's computer and case file, he revealed that Rich had been emailing Wikileaks.
Wheeler mentioned that the D.C Police and the FBI would not tell him where Seth Rich's computer is. Wheeler would then say these bombshell words, "Well perhaps there were some email communications between Seth Rich and Wikileaks".
Now in that same Infowars article, it is mentioned that the Rich family issued a statement against Wheeler and his words. The family stated that Wheeler's claims were "unsubstantiated", and he was hired and paid for by a third party. At the end of the day though, he is still a detective and was still hired to investigate this murder.
Over the past couple of years this story really fizzled out. The mainstream media did what the do best, which is create hysteria for a story or completely ignore a story, and they have completely ignored this since 2016. Alternative media have been the ones keeping this story alive, and giving the public some updates.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been a key figure in the Seth Rich investigation. Assange has suggested multiple times that Rich may have been the source behind the DNC leaks. He made the first, and pretty convincing, suggestion in August 2016 on a Dutch TV program Nieuwsuur:
Many have been calling on President Trump to pardon Assange, and bring him the US for information in exchange for asylum. One piece of information being on Seth Rich.
Now why hasn't President Trump? More than likely pressured by deep state and congressional members, check this out from the infamous QAnon via @qanon76 on Twitter:
Qanon is suggesting that Julian Assange (JA) or the DNC server, that has been no where to be found, equals the truth on Seth Rich (SR). Notice that tweet though, Democratic senators, and democratic senators only, demanded that Julian Assange's asylum in the US be revoked. How coincidental?
Now who is Qanon? Nobody knows for sure, but if you're on Twitter then you've probably seen #Qanon, #Q, or have seen @qanon76 popping up on your timeline. Qanon is someone or multiple people pushing out information in short bursts using abbreviations and not much detail. It's almost like a puzzle, and you have to have an understanding for what is being talked about to really understand Q's information bursts.
Here is a little more from Qanon:
"Server unlocked SR", "MS_13 (2 187'd nearby) phones unlock command & control". Did Podesta or someone from the DNC know Seth Rich was taking files from the DNC and sending them to Wikileaks? When caught, did someone in the DNC hire two MS 13 gang members to murder Seth? Remember Seth was killed, but not robbed. Did someone from DNC or gov't then pop the MS 13 gang members to cover up the tracks?
See, these Qanon posts are like a puzzle. They really make you ask questions and think into it.
Per The Daily Mail, Seth Rich was out drinking heavily until about 1:45AM (officially), but could have been out as late as 2:30AM at another bar. From 2:30-4:15AM, no one knows what Seth was doing, only known to be on his way home at the time he was shot.
Did Seth meet with someone or others after the bar? Was he told he was caught, or maybe asked about the situation? After he left, the hit was called in? Why is the case shrouded in secrecy?
I understand the murder happened very late at night and no one was really in sight, but cameras are everywhere around D.C., there has to be some hard evidence here. Shell casings, bullets, ballistic investigation? This case, much like the Vegas Shooting case, should not be shrouded in so much secrecy and mystery, family and citizens deserve more.
The Gateway Pundit reported yesterday, that Jack Burkman, a Washington-based attorney, told The Gateway Pundit that a witness has conclusive evidence that'll prove two people murdered Seth Rich. Burkman, according to the article, is workng with a private investigation team to solve the Seth Rich murder case. Burkman stated that they have a witness who can ID Seth's two killers.
Remember Qanon? "MS_13 (2 187'd nearby)". Burkman suggests though, that the killers may have been part of DEA and ATF. Associates to murder? DEA and ATF are agencies that would deal with MS 13. Spooky nevertheless .
Burkman held a press conference today regarding this, and not a lot was said, no names were said, but simply backs up the claims Burkman made to The Gateway Pundit.
See the press conference here via Jason Goodman on YouTube:
The witness is in fear for their life, and it seems to be for good reason. This is just a very spooky and mysterious situation overall.
Was it really a DNC assassination? Why is so much information being held by the District and by the federal government? So much basic information has not been given to the public. Is the family being pressured? Maybe they just want privacy, I mean they did lose a son.
This just stinks to high heaven, and it's a shame we're still talking about this two years later. How much longer? Alternative media will continue to push for information, and Qanon seems to be doing its job.
Keep searching and keep asking questions.
5G, the fifth generation of wireless technology. What makes it better than 4G LTE, do we really need 5G, and what about the health risks of this new technology?
4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) has been the upgraded version of 4G for a while now, 4G LTE was pretty much the first "version" of 5G. 4G LTE offers faster speeds and better security than 4G.
Per PCMag, 5G's networks will consist of small cells and could be as small as home routers. According to that article, 5G networks should not consist of large towers. The idea is, the more cells you have the more data you can get on the network.
What's worse, large cell towers here and there, or a small area with multiple cells closer to each other?
AT&T claims they're going to be the first ones to really implement this technology and offer it to their customers. According to PCMag, they believe AT&T will roll out 5G using millimeter wave technology, which can't reach very far, but is highly effective at the distances it can reach. This is why 5G networks will be placed closed to each other, and to be extremely effective and efficient, there will have to be a lot of these small cell networks around.
According to Newsmax, 5G networks will be put onto street lights, buildings, signs, pretty much anywhere possible. There still needs to be infrastructure to support all of this, but that's only half the battle of implementing 5G. ISPs like AT&T have to go not only the states, but the counties and cities, they plan to implement 5G in.
It's like fiber networks, you need to obtain approval from not just the feds and the states, but localities too.
So, how do you feel about small cell 5G networks being placed literally all over town? That's the plan here. There will no doubt be a spike in radiation in the areas where they'll implement these networks, that's just a given. If you have so many of these small cell networks in one area, radiation will increase due to the concentration of these small cell networks.
The industry wants to put this technology everywhere; from homes, to cars, to offices, to schools, to beaches, everywhere. The FCC certainly isn't standing in the way.
The Los Angeles Times ran a story on the health hazards of 5G technology. In that story, they said male rats had a slight increase of tumor growths. These rats were involved in a long term high radiation test, but it shows the risks are there. 5G will expose humans to a significant increase in radiation, especially if it's implemented in every setting of human life, like the industry plans.
In that same Los Angeles Times article, Leeka Kheifets, a epidemiology professor at UCLA, said "I don't think it's clear that there are health risks, but it's also not clear that there are no health risks."
Honestly, 5G could have been designed better, and to be honest, there isn't anything wrong with 4G LTE. 4G LTE is fast enough, the only real perk of 5G is you'll be able to use more data at a slightly faster speed than 4G LTE. Ask yourself, do you really need that? Wireless connection speed is pretty darn fast as it is.
Also, with these small cell networks everywhere, it can greatly increase the risk of cyber attacks and hacking. A bad actor could take out an entire city's network by hacking into or taking out a group of these small cell networks, and they way there are to be implemented, it won't take as much effort as a 4G network.
Alex Jones has been very passionate about noting the health hazards and other risks associated with 5G networks. He has been long time friends with Dr. Edward Group. Group founded the Global Healing Center. Group himself is warning about 5G technology, and Alex had him on Infowars to talk about it:
Infowars has really been leading the charge on warning about the health risks associated with 5G networks. Dr. Group is also on board with Alex and Infowars on the potential health risks of 5G. This isn't some wacky conspiracy folks, it's real.
Here is another Infowars report on 5G health risks, this time by Le Ann McAdoo:
Sadly, the wireless industry is too far invested in this 5G technology for it be stopped or reconsidered. The industry wants it, the government wants it, businesses want it, but do average citizens want it? It doesn't seem to be widely talked about by regular folks, that's for sure.
Hopefully the wireless industry and government recognizes these health risks and does reconsider the technology it self, but don't hold your breath on it. Big cities and the government will get it first, the rural areas will be the last to get it more than likely. Businesses, cars, and planes though? No matter where you live, this technology will find you.
Pulsar Poll: President Trump has made his SCOTUS decision! Who is it? Please vote & RT for a larger sample.
@ViewPulsar has launched a poll today via Twitter regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Justice pick. Please see below to vote in the poll. Please share the tweet and/or post to reach a larger sample.
Tonight we have a special edition of Headlines of the Day on Monday, July 9, 2018. This evening Pulsar is diving in to President Trump's Supreme Court pick.
Fox News reported earlier today, around 3:00PM EST, that President Trump has chosen his Supreme Court nominee. President Trump had narrowed it down to four finalists:
Pulsar ran a poll on Twitter today asking the folks who they think President Trump selected. Results are as follows:
Amy Coney Barrett won that poll with ease.
Well the wait is over, and President Trump has chosen Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States.
Brett Kavanaugh is from the D.C Circuit Court of Appeals.
This is a great victory for conservatives and republicans alike. The United States in general benefits greatly off this pick. With the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh, the rule of law and the constitution will always be represented from this day forward on the highest bench in the USA.
This is President Trump's second SCOTUS appointment, and chances are Trump will get a third appointment. Ruth Ginsburg seems to be the next one to leave the nations highest bench, and it's very likely it'll happen by 2020, but extremely likely it'll happen by 2024. 2024 will be Trump's last year in office.
The left seems to abuse the federal courts in this country, and they'd use the Supreme Court as a bully pulpit. Many feared if the left gained control of the Supreme Court, then the constitution itself will be at jeopardy, but luckily we won't have to worry about that for decades to come.
Thanks again, Mr. President!
With all the hysteria regarding Russia, Russia collusion, Russian interference, Russia this, and Russia that, we seem to be ignoring one extremely large country at play. China.
China, according to Wikipedia, has an estimated population of 1, 403, 500, 365 people. It is an extremely large country in terms of people, land, and most certainly economy. While half the US focuses on Russia, who takes a back seat to China in population, land, and economy, China is increasing their military.
Russia and China may be able to match each other in military might now, Russia certainly had the upper hand at one point, and really within the last decade. China over the past five years has been increasing their military might.
According to Defense News, China has increased their military spending by 8.1% to $173 billion. China is also launching their second aircraft carrier this year. China would like to beef up their stealth fighters and missile programs too. China's Peoples Liberation Army consists of 2 million soldiers.
China has said it once and has said it once again, this as recent as April 27, 2018 per Breitbart, that America can't protect Taiwan.
Let's not forget that the U.S and China have been in conflict in cyber space for over a decade now. Chinese hackers attack the US, either government, businesses, or citizens everyday, and you better believe the US does it back. Now the US and China did sign an agreement over cyber crime and hacking in 2015, but it really didn't stop anything.
A good article to read on this is this Newsweek one by Dorothy Denning.
Is World War III coming, is it inevitable? I've been talking about powder kegs for a long while now, President Trump seems to be doing all he can to get rid of the powder kegs, but it's tough. President Trump made a historic meeting with an ally of China's, North Korea. China is North Korea's lifeline for the most part, and have been since the Korean War.
President Trump has also been trying to keep a good relationship with President Xi, but has made clear that the US will not be taking advantage of anymore, specifically on trade. As of today, the US and China have entered a trade war in hopes of better trade deals as a result, more on that per Fox Business.
Also as of today, a leak that sparked this post came to light, it was a Chinese government leak, and that leak contained information on growing their military and overtaking the United States. According to Express, China has plans to ramp up their military, which they're already doing, to win wars and eventually overtake the United States. Again this information is straight from Chinese government documents.
The documents could suggest that China just wants to be a strong, if not the strongest, nation in the world. They cited the U.S, Russia, and Japan when talking about that. China is strong, but not strong enough yet.
President Trump is trying to keep China on the good side, but it looks like China has plans of their own.
Headlines of the Day: Pruitt Out as EPA Chief, Teen Attacked for Wearing MAGA Hat, and Facebook Deemed the Declaration of Independence Hate Speech
Breaking down the top three headlines of Thursday, July 5, 2018. Pulsar has chosen 3 headlines from today as the top 3 to go over, and those headlines are as follows:
CBS News reported earlier that Scott Pruitt has resigned as director of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).
This comes after Pruitt being under intense scrutiny on scandals he's had while running the EPA. Pruitt has had to face pubic criticism and calls to resign as well. One being as recent as this week, Pruitt was confronted by a mother holding a child, berated him and called for his resignation.
Pruitt may have had personal issues, but he seemed to be running the EPA just fine. Now, it wasn't too great when he was wastefully spending our tax dollars traveling.
Of course the media spent plenty of time shaming Pruitt and putting his wrong doings out there, maybe because he is part of the Trump Administration. The media managed to ignore 43 EPA scandals that happened during Obama's presidency, per Grabien.
President Trump came out on Twitter and confirmed that Andrew Wheeler will replace Pruitt as director of the EPA. More on this here from Fox News:
2. Teen Attacked for Wearing a "MAGA" Hat
A teen was eating at a San Antonio Whataburger when a very insensitive man walked up to him, robbed him of his "Make America Great Again" hat, and throw the teen's drink on the teen. This all according to News4 San Antonio.
Check out the video here, per News4 San Antonio:
In that same News4 San Antonio article, Whataburger made a statement and stated that they "certainly don't condone this kind of customer behavior".
According to Infowars, the suspect has been identified as Jimenez Kino and Kino has since been fired from his job. Apparently /pol/ on 4Chan ID'd Kino and contacted his employer.
Just another day of tolerant leftists.
3. Facebook Flags the Declaration of Independence as Hate Speech
Today The Washington Times reported that Facebook deemed the Declaration of Independence was hate speech. All week Facebook's algorithms have been flagging the Declaration of Independence as hate speech according to the report.
The report cited how a community newspaper around the Houston/Beaumont, Texas area was posting the Declaration of Independence in small chunks each day for nine days on Facebook. The paper's Facebook paged received an automated notice that stated that the Monday post went against Facebook's standards on hate speech".
Facebook apologized and told the paper that the censorship was a mistake.
Facebook has been under fire from libertarians, republicans, and privacy hawks for years now, and especially since their data scandal just this year. Mark Zuckerberg has had to go before Congress for these scandals.
Big tech has been pushing the limits on censoring speech. Twitter, Facebook, and Google are the big three when it comes to online speech censorship.
Here's more on this story per Fox Business:

Headlines of the Day: ICE Under Fire, Oil Prices Topping the Charts, and Walmart Drops "Impeach 45" T-Shirt from Website
Breaking down the top 3 headlines of today, Tuesday, July 3, 2018. The top three headlines Pulsar has chosen to go over are as follows:
Monday night a group associated with the "Abolish ICE" movement through a brick through the office window of Nebraska Republican Party's headquarters in Lincoln, NE. The same vandals then spray painted "Abolish ICE" on the sidewalk outside of the office. This all according to the The Daily Caller.
This is just one of multiple violent leftist protests against ICE. On Saturday, a man assaulted a United States Secret Service officer after an ICE protest in Lafayette Square in Washington D.C. Per NBC Washington, a man illegally parked his car along Pennsylvania Avenue, got out, moved a security barrier, and started screaming "Where is the president" to officers.
After the suspect started shouting at the officers, he then punched an officer in the jaw and in the eye. He was arrested for assaulting a federal law enforcement officer.
According to CBS Philly, an ICE protest turned violent with multiple arrests today. See the news report, per CBS Philly, here:
People need to stop acting on emotion and look at the facts and statistics of ICE. Research ICE, and look at all the good things they do for the United States. They put their lives on the line and go to work every day to protect American citizens. Why does the left hate Americans so much? The left needs to tone it down, or they'll start being arrested more, or even worse, get people killed.
2. Oil Tops $75 per Barrel for the First Time Since 2014
Oil topped out at $75 per barrel today, but has leveled out at around $74 after the closing bell today per CNBC. Today was the first day since 2014 where oil has reached $75 per barrel.
President Trump has been calling on OPEC to increase oil production to help combat the rising prices, and some have been calling for the president to open up some of the US oil reserves.
Russia, per The Wall Street Journal, Russia plans to boost production output by 200,000 barrels a day. OPEC in general plans to boost oil production as well. Looks like President Trump is herding the cattle when it comes to oil countries.
According to The Hill, Saudi Arabia is planning to boost oil output by 2 million barrels per day. Saudi Crown Prince bin Salman and President Trump have had a great relationship since 2017, and we need a good one with Saudi Arabia in terms of oil supply and other things.
Here is a breakdown of rising oil and rising gas prices per Fox Business:
3. Walmart Buckles to Pressure to Remove "Impeach 45" T-Shirts from Store Website
Per Fox News, Walmart has removed "Impeach 45" t-shirts from their store website. Walmart came under intense social media fire today when it was revealed that they were selling t-shirts that had "Impeach 45" on them.
With all the division and incivility around the country, along with the democrats pushing for impeachment and violent protests, this seemed like a good idea for Walmart to remove it. Also a great business move after #BoycottWalmart started trending on Twitter and quickly gained support.
This is America, and you should be able to sell whatever you want, legally that is, but you're not entitled to sell it anywhere you want. Especially in bad political times as now, a large company shouldn't be profiting or encouraging a movement of division.

Below we're going to go over the top 3 headlines of Monday, July 2, 2018. The headlines Pulsar has chosen as the top 3 of the day are as follows:
Per WKYC, the FBI has foiled a plot to attack American citizens celebrating The 4th of July in Cleveland, OH.
The suspect, Abdur Raheem Rafeeq also know to police as Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, was set up and caught by the FBI on Sunday, July 1st. Rafeeq told an undercover FBI agent that he planned on committing a terror attack on The 4th of July in Cleveland, OH.
According to authorities, Rafeeq conducted reconnaissance of downtown Cleveland, and even had pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda.
This just goes to show that radical Islamic terrorism is still alive here in the US. Our men and women of law enforcement and government do a great job protecting us from it, this sting was a prime example.
The WKYC news reports can be viewed here:
2. President Trump's Tariffs are Ramping Up, Canada has Retaliated, and Some are Worried
President Trump has been slapping tariffs left and right on countries, but for good reason. The good reason being the American worker and in the end the American consumer. President Trump is hoping to not only protect Americans in general when it comes to trade, but he wants to level the playing field when it comes to global trade.
China has so far went toe to toe with the US and tariffs, the EU is threatening retaliatory tariffs on automobiles, and today Canada has hit the US with $12.6B in tariffs.
Contrary to popular belief, this is what Trump was hoping for. This now sets the stage for trade negotiations and new trade deals to be made. It may sting at first, but at the end of the day the American worker and consumer will both benefit.
Per Business Insider, Canada has hit the US with $12.6B in tariffs on steel, aluminum, yogurt, maple syrup, coffee, whiskey, candles, plywood, and various others. Now, a lot of this stuff the US has plenty of, and is made right here in the US, so buy American.
These tariffs have some uneasy, see the Fox Business report here:
President Trump today came out and straight up said that the WTO (World Trade Organization) needs to change, or the US will do something about it. Per Fox Business, President Trump doesn't plan to leave the WTO, but is exploring plans to change the WTO.
Axios has reported a leaked bill titled "United States Fair and Reciprocal Trade Act" is in the works. The bill will give the President unilateral power to ignore the two most basic principles of the WTO and trade with any country.
The President will be able to ignore tariff ceilings and not being able to set different tariff rates for different countries outside of free trade agreements.
That is a bill I hope that passes, and it should, as it's long overdue. The US has been getting destroyed in trade for years now, and it's about time we have a president that is sticking up for the nation.
3. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and His Family Have Been Threatened, and The Suspect is Behind Bars
The Daily Caller reported earlier today that Kentucky GOP senator Rand Paul and his family were threatened. The suspect threatened to kill him and chop up his family with an axe. According to the report, the suspect called in the threat to Paul's Bowling Green, KY office.
Rand Paul was subject to physical assault from a lunatic neighbor in 2017, and his attacker has been charged and sentenced in that crime. Rand Paul is no stranger to these sorts of threats and attacks.
Rand Paul is strong believer and supporter of liberty and the constitution, and according to the left, that's a bit radical.
Political and physical violence have been ramping up on the left since President Trump has taken office. A deranged leftist shot up a GOP congressional baseball practice in 2017, nearly killing GOP representative, and House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise. Rand Paul was present that day, but not hit.
This incivility and division has only been ramping up the last couple of months, and it seems as if there is no end in sight. The left is barking up the wrong tree, and for the sake of the United States, they should calm it down, and talk with those on the right. The mainstream media is no help at all for any of this.

We all know the “official” story of the Las Vegas Shooting that occurred on 10/1/17. Stephen Paddock managed to kill 58 people and injure over 500 more, with simple AR-15 rifles from room 32-135 of the Mandalay Bay.
Paddock managed to pull off many accurate head shots at sniper distances with AR-15s fitted with bump stocks and managed to accurately hit running targets over a quarter mile away. That’s some of the “official” story.
More of the “official” story is that officers breached Paddock’s room, found Paddock dead from suicide, ammo, weapons, expended casings all over the place, and two broken windows. What if I told you, that there were never any broken windows in 32-135 of the Mandalay Bay until after officers breached that room?
Thanks to Shepard Ambellas of Intellihub and John Cullen of Youtube’s John E. Hoover channel, we now know this as fact. Click here to read Shepard Ambellas Intellihub report on this.
John Cullen of John E. Hoover on YouTube elaborates on Ambellas report, and breaks down the body camera footage, as well as the dialogue spoken by officers in that footage. He points out the complete miss by several mainstream news outlets. Check it out here:
“Standby, we’ve got curtains open on a window that’s not broken.” “It’s not! It’s not! It’s not! Corey, it’s not. No, it’s not.”- SWAT officers' own words after breaching Paddock’s room.
Why isn’t this being reported by any mainstream news outlets. Isn’t this fabricating evidence? Why did the news outlets that reported on the body camera footage skip over that dialogue? Did they just miss it? Did their production team not take the time to actually listen to the whole thing? Were they instructed to not report it by some higher power?
This information seems to be being ignored, a lot of evidence against the official story is actually. Why is this, what's going on here? If the ignorance is not intentional, then are these news outlets just that incompetent?
Intellihub has been on top of their game when it comes to the Las Vegas Shooting investigation. It's true investigative journalism. John Cullen of John E. Hoover on YouTube has also been a big component in investigating the Las Vegas Shooting. Many others have been involved too, and it's us doing true investigative work that'll make a difference in this investigation, and hopefully, journalism will return to it's honest hard working roots.
So ask yourself, did the LVPD and FBI falsify evidence after they realized they had not located the main shooter(s)? If they did, it's both a federal and Nevada state crime.
Put yourselves in those SWAT officers shoes. You get the call that the shooter is in room 32-135, it seems to be confirmed, then *BOOM* door is breached and you find your suspect dead on the ground with weapons and ammo everywhere. Initially those SWAT officers knew for a fact they had their guy, until they started looking around, and then went to the windows.
Two SWAT officers, on body cam footage, confirm there are no broken windows. Once that confirmation is relayed over police radio, there is silence in the room and a look of defeat on an officer's face. At that moment those officers knew Paddock wasn't the main shooter(s), and they wasted all that time zeroing in on Paddock, while the main shooter(s) fled the area, or so we know.
Keep searching and keep asking questions. Take a look at a previous Pulsar report on Las Vegas Shooting witness statements that seem to have been ignored.
June 12, 2018 has already been etched into the everlasting book of history. It was the first ever face to face meeting between sitting leaders of the United States and North Korea.
The meeting started at a little after 9:00AM, Singapore time, and lasted well into the afternoon. The summit consisted of two main meetings. One meeting was about 45 minutes long and just between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. The second was a bilateral meeting between President Trump, Kim Jong Un, and a few government officials from the US and North Korea.
At the end of it all, President Trump and Kim Jong Un signed a "Declaration of Friendship". Within that Declaration of Friendship there were certain agreements, which you may read here:
The signing of the agreement can be watched here per whitehouse.gov:
SO WHY IS THIS A WIN FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP?
Let's pick at the low hanging fruit real quick, President Trump is the first ever sitting US president to have an in person meeting with a sitting dictator of North Korea. That right there gives President Trump points.
President Trump also clearly dominated the room. It was clear he was asserting himself as the alpha towards Kim Jong Un, and that he was coming into the summit from a position of strength. You could tell by the way President Trump talked and how he'd pat Kim on the back or slightly grab his arm from time to time. I don't think Kim was expecting that to be honest.
Now as for the agreement they signed. There isn't that much meat to it, but it is strategic in how the US laid it out. The US has simple demands here: denuclearization, POW/MIA recovery from the Korean War, peace between US and North Korea, and peace on the Korean Peninsula as a whole.
In the meantime, the US is going to suspend all war games and military drills on the Korean Peninsula. See, that's how deals go. You ask for something, but give something, in this case the US gave something very little, but very significant. North Korea wanted those drills to end to begin with.
Like any deal goes, if one end doesn't hold up their end of the bargain then there will be no deal. If North Korea doesn't commit to denuclearization or peace, then the US can very easily restart the war games and military drills and walk away from the table.
President Trump himself said there will need to be multiple meetings and many years to achieve the goals laid out. Denuclearization takes a while, but you need to start somewhere. Peace can start right away, but will need to be smoothed out over many talks and years as well.
The end game is capitalism, and eventually democracy in North Korea, that will take over a decade to achieve, but again, you need to start somewhere. President Trump showed Kim Jong Un a video of shots from around the USA, as well as what North Korea could potentially be like if they embrace western culture. South Korea did just that, and look where they are today.
If that end game is achieved, then there should no longer be a human rights crisis in North Korea. The citizens there will have a chance to live a long, healthy, and decent life. No more generation prisons or executions for watching western films, along with many other things.
Kim Jong Un knows all of this, he knows he has the weaker hand to play with, and he knows he has to play the game. He knows the world knows what his people are going through. If Kim starts shooting missiles off again, or continues to build nuclear weapons, it'll end badly for him and North Korea in general.
The US still has sanctions on North Korea, and Trump again put it out there for Kim, that if they honor their agreements, those sanctions can be lifted. That could open up to lifting the trade embargo, and potentially lead into doing what Trump suggested; hotels and condos on North Korean beaches.
Today, The Hill cited an AFP News Agency (@AFP) tweet that Kim Jong Un accepted President Trump's invitation to the White House. Allegedly Kim Jong Un invited President Trump to Pyongyang as well.
The Trump-Kim Summit was a big W for President Trump, and a big L for those against him. If those goals are all achieved, you can rewind back to where it all started, June 12, 2018 with President Donald J. Trump.
