We do not minimize the fact that we do indeed have HATE CRIMES in the US as we see GLOBALLY. We simply do not want global banking 5% freemason/Greek CIVIL UNREST CIVIL WAR players deliberately creating an environment of HATE that does not exist for a super-majority of US 99% WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens.
Do states need HATE CRIME BILLS to protect our 99% of REAL JEWISH citizens? These laws have been in place for decades-----this is why we KNOW all this media and political action is PRETENDING.
18 U.S. Code § 249 - Hate crime acts(a) In General.-- (1)Offenses involving actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin.--Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person--
We focused this week on two global banking 1% FADS tied to our 99% REAL CATHOLIC/PROTESTANT of citizens for these same reasons. Global banking 1% is releasing all kinds of cultural arts bringing back HISTORY as FICTION aimed at each population group. What we found disturbing in GALWAY as in MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS was the heightened themes of WARRIORS and oppression by PROTESTANTS, then CATHOLICS when most of this historical FICTION did not occur.
Mary Pat Kelly is being a global banking 1% freemason STAR -----creating FADS we do not want MOVING FORWARD in the US.

Here at last is one Irish family's epic journey, capturing the tragedy and triumph of the Irish-American experience. In a rousing tale that echoes the myths and legends of Ireland herself, young Honora Keeley and Michael Kelly wed and start a family, inhabiting a hidden Ireland where fishermen and tenant farmers find solace in their ancient faith, songs, stories, and communal celebrations. Selling both their catch--and their crops--to survive, these people subsist on the potato crop--their only staple food. But when blight destroys the potatoes three times in four years, a callous government and uncaring landlords turn a natural disaster into The Great Starvation that will kill one million. Honora and Michael vow their children will live. The family joins two million other Irish refugees in one of the greatest rescues in human history: the Irish Emigration to America. Danger and hardship await them there. Honora and her unconventional sister Maire watch their seven sons as they transform Chicago from a frontier town to the "City of the Century", fight the Civil War, and enlist in the cause of Ireland's freedom. The Kelly clan is victorious. This heroic story sheds brilliant light on the ancestors of today's 44 million Irish Americans.
In the author's colorful and eclectic life, she has written and directed award-winning documentaries on Irish subjects, as well as the dramatic feature Proud. She's been an associate producer on Good Morning America and Saturday Night Live, written books on Martin Scorsese, World War II, and Bosnia, and a novel based on her experiences as a former nun - Special Intentions.

Praise For Galway Bay…"After reading her novel, Galway Bay, you might wonder if Mary Pat Kelly knows everything about 19th century Ireland, the Great Famine, and the emigrant experience in America.

As they say in Ireland, 'Take your ease with this book.' You'll need time for laughter and tears and pure magic."
"Historically accurate epic of the Irish potato famine veers into gothic romance territory but keeps its eye on the Fenian prize. A satisfying tale, with few surprises for those who know the territory, but no false steps."

"GALWAY BAY" is a wonderful story of triumph against the odds. It's the story of the Irish in America: what they gave and what was given, the things they lost and what was never lost--humor and faith and a strong belief that tomorrow would be a better day. Kelly's knowledge of Ireland and Irish-American history is awesome."
"GALWAY BAY is a lyrical mix of history, romance and riveting narrative. A wonderfully rich, rousing, engaging tale of Irish survival and triumph, it brings enlightenment as well as enjoyment. Mary Pat Kelly's prowess as a storyteller enlivens every page."
"In this engaging novel, Mary Pat Kelly brings to life a critical era of Irish-American life, illuminating a part of our history that remains too little known."
We posted yesterday a great meme showing THE UK filtering through a time glass to become DARK AGES 3000BC Eastern Europe KIEVAN KINGDOM because we have known all last century that was the goal of MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD for only the global 1%. There will be no BRITAIN----no WALES----no SCOTLAND----and no IRELAND. Galway Bay was a novel showing the passion of our 99% WE THE IRISH to shake the perpetual colonialism that captured IRELAND for a thousand years. The plot of COMING TO AMERICA and feeling the IRISH had a new country that saw them as CITIZENS with rights and freedoms was a good theme.
That character PATRICK running around being a CIVIL UNREST CIVIL WAR player may have been necessary centuries ago----through the 1800s-----but what has captured our US 99% WE THE IRISH citizens is the same 5% freemason/Greek Irish players working for those very same oppressing OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS knowing the goal of today's MOVING FORWARD will do to our US 99% of WE THE IRISH ---just as the same for our 99% WE THE CATHOLIC citizens------SENDING IN THE LANDLORDS ----creating deep poverty, hunger, no rights, death and destruction is exactly what FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING 5% CLINTON NEO-LIBERALS------yes, many being IRISH players -----are MOVING FORWARD.
GALWAY BAY creates an Irish hero supposedly fighting for those 99% of Irish being victims O'MALLEY. This novel was released in early 2000s just as O'MALLEY was making his Baltimore/Maryland debut.
MAKE NO MISTAKE------O'MALLEY AS BETO O'ROURKE ARE GREAT BIG 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYER POLS ---LIVING FOR TODAY---NOT CARING WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR 99% OF WE THE IRISH----OR 99% OF WE THE REAL CATHOLIC CITIZENS.
So, these few decades of ROBBER BARON sacking and looting made many Irish merely rich----many Irish placed in high-level politics ---even made some GLOBAL MITRE CORPORATION IRISH Bishops rich. But know what? All that disappears in MOVING FORWARD.

Martin O’Malley Backs Beto O’Rourke For President
Martin O’Malley — the former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor who ran for president on the Democratic side in 2016 — announced on Thursday that he won’t be running again. And he also said that he will support the candidacy of former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke — in the event that O’Rourke runs. O’Rourke ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2016, losing to Republican incumbent Senator Ted Cruz.
O’Malley broke the news in an op-ed piece for the Des Moines Register in Iowa, leading with the headline “Here’s who I’d like to see run for president. (Hint: It’s not me).” The choice of newspaper is not an accident, as Iowa is the first caucus state.
“I will not be running for president in 2020, but I hope Beto O’Rourke does,” O’Malley writes to begin the piece.
He goes on to look back at his 2016 campaign, in which O’Malley won no primaries. He argues that the 2016 electorate wasn’t in the mood for what he was offering, which he described as “new leadership.”
“But now, there is a different mood in our nation. People are looking for a new leader who can bring us together. They are looking for a unifier and a healer. They are looking for a leader of principle, and they are now looking for a fearless vision,” O’Malley writes, and he lists several candidates that ran in 2018 — including ones for whom he personally campaigned.
Oh, really O'MALLEY and a pol just like you----global banking 1% Clinton neo-liberal is going to do that after these few decades of US cities as FAILED STATES----sacking and looting our 99% of WE THE PEOPLE
He then indicates that O’Rourke, who is relatively new to the national political scene, is the one to provide that new leadership.
“In his courageous run for U.S. Senate in Texas, O’Rourke ran a disciplined and principled campaign that also managed to be raw, authentic, and real,” O’Malley writes. “He spoke to the American values of honesty, compassion for one another, and courage in the face of a rapidly changing future. These are the American values alive and well in the hearts of our young people. These are the values which tell us where America is headed. And with these values, O’Rourke very nearly defeated the incumbent senator and Republican runner-up for president — in Texas.”
O’Malley was Governor of Maryland from 2007 through 2015, serving two terms as Mayor of Baltimore before that. O’Malley, after failing to gain traction against Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, dropped out of the race for president after the Iowa caucuses in 2016.
The character of Baltimore Mayor Thomas Carcetti on The Wire, played by Aidan Gillen, was based on O’Malley.
Some say----well ST ANDREWS is tied to WALES-----and MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS ----today's SCOTTISH RITE TEMPLE is making it big in these few decades of sacking and looting civil societies. This is the end of those dastardly BRITISH KINGS AND QUEENS always killing our 99% of WE THE IRISH. Well, that would not be true. This symbolizes the end of UK-----with all three satellite sovereign nations going down too. That would be MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS and her cousin BRITISH QUEEN ELIZABETH.
Cindy Walsh is both IRISH and English-----we care about the history of both-----but we are ALL-AMERICAN because we know as MAIRE AND HONORA did----this is from where we get all those RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS those Irish immigrants fought to attain. We KNOW those dastardly British OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS could care less about our 99% of WE THE BRITISH citizens or US 99% WE THE BRITISH DESCENDANT.
Remember, the goal of global banking 1% in MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE is getting rid of all our Western nations' 99% of WE THE PEOPLE having lived 800 years of MAGNA CARTA AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT AGE OF REASON -----they don't care if these people are Catholic/Protestant----Irish/Spanish/French/German/Netherlandish/Nordic.
St Andrews FLAG is simply a SYMBOL------it is not religious.
It is fine to worship SAINTS -----we are simply shouting today's global banking 1% MOVING FORWARD has nothing to do with any religion.
Protestants and Catholic 99% of citizens do not have to fight and kill each other.
Here in US all our US national media FAKE NEWS ties TRUMP to PUTIN-----of course this FAKE NEWS ties WALES/SCOTLAND to PUTIN-----of course the UK as the US is made to look like great big LOSERS. So, is the UK the only one FLIPPING THE EARTH'S AXIS from WESTERN hemisphere to Eastern Hemisphere? OF COURSE NOT. All Western European OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS are throwing Western Europe and UK and those 99% of WE THE WESTERN SOVEREIGN CITIZENS under the bus.
Who wins when they have NO national sovereignty as is MOVING FORWARD for Britain, Wales, Scotland, Ireland as too THE AMERICAS? Certainly not any of our 99% WE THE PEOPLE black, white, or brown----REAL Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, Muslim, Hindi-Buddhist/Seik.
SO, WHY WOULD ANY OF THESE POPULATION GROUPS GEAR UP FOR HATE CRIMES? WELL, CERTAINLY TAKES THE SPOTLIGHT FROM THOSE GLOBAL BANKING 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYER/POLS MOVING ALL THIS FORWARD.
When did St Andrew die and how did he become Scotland’s patron saint?
St Andrew was one of the original twelve apostles of Jesus and Scotland claims to be his last resting place
By Jon Rogers

Updated: 30th November 2018, 6:24 am
ON November 30 Scotland celebrates its patron saint St Andrew.
Here is the story of the Christian apostle who lived in the first century who is forever linked with Scotland.
Hard facts about Saint Andrew are thin on the ground due to the passage of time although he was one of the original twelve apostles of Jesus and the brother of St Peter.
He is first mentioned in the Bible in the gospel of Matthew.
Andrew was a fisherman along with his brother Peter and Jesus called them to be his followers as the fishing on the Sea of Galilee.
He is also mentioned in the gospel according to John during the feeding of the 5,000.
It was he who brought the boy with the lunch of five loaves and two fish to Jesus - that eventually turned into a meal for them all.
He is only mentioned once after Jesus's resurrection and ascension into heaven, in Acts chapter 1, as he met with the other disciples in the upper room.
St Andrew is said to have carried out missionary activities around the Black Sea.
He is thought to have died around 60-70AD in Patras, Achaia – now Greece.
What was his cause of death?A fourth-century account reports his death by crucifixion with him being bound to the cross, rather than nailed.
Initially the cross was said to be a Latin cross, similar to the one on which Jesus died, but later accounts described it as a “crux decussate” – an X-shaped cross, or saltire which later became known as St Andrew’s Cross.
It is said this type of cross was used at his own request as he deemed himself unworthy to be crucified on the same type of cross as Jesus.
When did he become Scotland's patron saint?St Andrew has been celebrated in Scotland for more than a thousand years with feasts held in his honour as far back as 1000AD.
But it wasn’t until 1320 when Scotland declared independence with the Declaration of Arbroath that he officially became Scotland’s patron saint.
Scotland’s flag was named in his honour and the town of St Andrews was given the name as it claims to be the final resting place of the saint.
It is thought the remains of St Andrew were brought to Scotland from Constantinople to what is now St Andrews.
St Andrew isn’t just the patron saint of Scotland but also Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Barbados and Romania.
He's also the patron saint of fishmongers and fishermen.
We simply want all of our 99% of WE THE PEOPLE---- and those choosing to be 5% global banking freemason/Greek players to understand ---what were secret societies fighting for individual sovereign OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS-----are now joined as ONE GOVERNANCE----even those Eastern European OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS. So, whether SCOTTISH RITE TEMPLE-----THE TEMPLARS-----whether THE HOSPITALLERS or KNIGHTS OF MALTA------all these secret societies having existed for few thousand years in one form or another are going to DISAPPEAR. There is no more need for FREEMASONRY/GREEK culture in 3000BC Eastern Hemisphere HINDI-BRAHMIN.
So, who are the 99% of US WE THE PEOPLE whether black, white, brown-----supposed to HATE? Even today's global banking 5% players like O'MALLEY/O'ROURKE are going under the bus. They don't care---they are living for today.
THESE CRIME BILL 2019 HATE POLICIES ARE NOT PROTECTING OUR US 99% WE THE PEOPLE OR OUR NEW TO US IMMIGRANTS----THEY ARE BEING USED TO ELIMINATE ALL ACCOUNTABILITY TIED TO MAGNA CARTA OF OLD WORLD KINGS BEING ACCOUNTABLE UNDER RULE OF LAW. IF YOU HATE WHAT THE KINGS' GOVERNMENT IS DOING----YOU ARE GUILTY OF A HATE CRIME.
CLINTON/BUSH/TRUMP are all tied to working for these global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS groups. No one winning ----simply a few BEOWULFS wanting to be RED AND BLACK ----JULIEN SORRELS.
Knights Templar - Wikipedia
This can be seen in the "Red Cross of Constantine," inspired by the Military Constantinian Order; the "Order of Malta," inspired by the Knights Hospitaller; and the "Order of the Temple", inspired by the Knights Templar. The Orders of Malta and the Temple feature prominently in the York Rite.
Knights Hospitaller - Wikipedia
The Knights of Malta had a strong presence within the Imperial Russian Navy and the pre-revolutionary French Navy. When Phillippe de Longvilliers de Poincy was appointed governor of the French colony on Saint Kitts in 1639, he was a prominent Knight of St. John and dressed his retinue with the emblems of the Order.

The Templar Knights Malta Order has been known also as "Knights of Rhodes", and as the "Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta." It was at first a charitable Order, while the Templars was from the first a military one.
Again, the movie MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS was a very bad movie----it was indeed HISTORICAL FICTION. We are made to watch as MARY returns to Scotland only to be in the middle of BEOWULFS -----each using RELIGION as a tool to gain WEALTH AND POWER. James Stewart----that would be MARY'S half brother who ended up leading that civil war civil unrest because he was MAD and wanted to be KING. Stewart, calling himself a PROTESTANT because they wanted peace with a PROTESTANT British Queen Elizabeth who was PROTESTANT simply because her father wanted more power and wealth free from Catholic Church. Elizabeth didn't care if MARY was made Queen of Britain---JAMES and sons played both fields.
The problem for our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE whether black, white, or brown---whether REAL 99% Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, Muslim, Hindi-Buddhist----whether merely rich or poor---whether man or woman-----is
GLOBAL BANKING 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS ARE MOVING FORWARD MAKING THE US A COLONIAL ENTITY TRYING TO END OUR SOVEREIGN RIGHTS AS CITIZENS.
Absolutely NO 99% OF GLOBAL CITIZENS win in MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD being made to think they are GLOBAL CITIZENS.
All of these OLD WORLD 'NOBLES' are going under the bus ----let's fight for our ALL-AMERICAN 99% WE THE PEOPLE sovereign rights.
James Stewart, 1st earl of Moray
Written By:James Stewart, 1st earl of Moray, (born c. 1531—died January 21, 1570, Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland), half brother of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, who became regent of Scotland after her abdication.
The illegitimate son of King James V and Lady Margaret Douglas, Stewart led the Protestant lords in their conflict with Mary Stuart’s mother, Mary of Lorraine, the queen regent. When Mary Stuart assumed control of the government upon the death of her mother in 1560, however, he supported her, despite her Roman Catholicism. In 1562 she made him Earl of Moray and Earl of Mar, but he lost her favour by supporting the Calvinist reformer John Knox and by opposing the queen’s marriage (July 1565) to Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley. From August to October 1565, Moray attempted to arouse Edinburgh citizens against Mary’s authority. She personally led the force that drove him and his supporters across the border. The outlawed Moray fled to England but was pardoned and allowed to return to Scotland the following year. When Mary abdicated in 1567, Moray was appointed regent for her year-old son, King James VI. He suppressed her final effort to regain power when he routed her forces at Langside on May 13, 1568, and she, in turn, fled to England. A substantial portion of the nobility continued to maintain Mary’s right to rule, however, and Moray had difficulty putting into practice his vigorously Protestant and pro-English policies. In January 1570 he was assassinated by James Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh, who favoured Mary, while riding through Linlithgow.
When we GOOGLE ----left behind are HATERS -----we see lots of references to our US 99% of WE THE LEFT social progressive liberals------while our US national media likes telling us all those 99% WE THE RIGHT WING WHITE citizens are the HATERS feeling LEFT BEHIND.
The reality MOVING FORWARD is all US 99% WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens----right and left --------even those 5% freemason/Greek players are going to be LEFT BEHIND----and be categorized by global banking 1% as HATERS.
'I hate to say William F. Buckley was right, but I think it’s all about immanentizing the eschaton'.
This is what today's CRIME BILL 2019 is MOVING FORWARD. OBAMA era super-sized what a Bush era placed on steroids. Please remember, much of what we call DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE does not exist today. We have lots of 5% freemason/Greek player actions trying to create FEAR----create SILENCE-------breaking down civil society and human inter-relationships because that is what far-right wing, authoritarian, militaristic, extreme wealth extreme poverty global corporate HITLER/STALINIST/MAOIST FASCISM looks like.
LET'S SHAKE THOSE TAIL FEATHERS AND COME TOGETHER AS A 99% VS GLOBAL 1%-----YES WE CAN.
We are afraid William Buckley was a 33RD degree FREEMASON----not religious-----as too THE FEDERALIST as a right wing think tank...............telling us our 99% of REAL left social progressives like MAIRE AND HONORA are not religious-----
OH, REALLY FAKE RELIGIOUS RIGHT?
Why Is the Angry Left So Angry?
March 26, 2015 By Robert Tracinski
One of my Federalist colleagues recently observed that, “When I write pieces that upset liberals, I get angry, personal hate mail. When I write pieces that upset social conservatives, I most often get this: ‘I appreciate your well written article and I will pray for you, sir, that you will find the God who loves you.'”
This absolutely tracks with my experience—and as an atheist, I’ve got a certain track record of writing pieces that upset religious readers. I get the occasional angry or dismissive comment, but on the whole the reaction is an almost annoying amount of Christian charity. Not so when I take on, say, the environmentalists.
Why the difference? Why is the Angry Left so angry?
Some of the Federalist staff were discussing this, and we came up with a couple of possibilities.
Rich Cromwell quipped: “It’s the difference between dealing with those who are certain they’re following the edicts of the one true faith and dealing with Christians.” Heh.
Then there’s the fact that “Progressives” convince themselves that everything they’re doing is for the greater good, which supersedes the rights of any individual. It’s a case of “the humanitarian with the guillotine“: we’re doing this for the overall good of humanity, so it’s OK to start killing people. Or to be really, really mean to them in the comments field.
There’s the fact that advocacy of big government is by its very nature a quest for power and control, for the ability to use force against others—a cause that naturally attracts the bitter and intolerant.
There’s the fact that those of us on the right are accustomed to encountering a lot of ideological opposition. For most of our lives, the left has controlled the high ground of the culture, such as it is: the mainstream media, Hollywood, the universities, the arts. So we’re not used to crawling into a “safe space” and hiding from ideas we disagree with, which makes it easier for us to regard ideological opposition with a degree of equanimity.
But beneath all of these factors, there is something deeper, something more elemental. Something metaphysical.
I hate to say William F. Buckley was right, but I think it’s all about immanentizing the eschaton.
The “eschaton” is a term from theology, where it refers to the ultimate end state of creation—basically, what will happen after the final judgment. So “eschatology” speculates about the nature of heaven and God’s final plans for mankind. Outside of theology, the “eschaton” is a stand-in for the final, ideal goal we’re hoping to reach.
There are three basic views of what this ideal state is: the supernatural, the individual, and the social.
In its original context, for the traditional American Christian, the “eschaton” is supernatural: it is life in heaven. That means it’s something that will happen regardless of the state of this wicked world, and your place in it is dependent on you and your own inner spiritual state, not on other people. Hence the Christian’s confounded complacency. If I’m not on board with his religious vision, well, that sucks for me when the Rapture comes. Because my religious critic is a nice guy, he’ll pray that eventually I see the light and accept Jesus into my heart. But at the end of the day (or of history), it’s no skin off his soul.
Hmm, morals and ethics have been the foundation of all civilizations for thousands of years until these few decades of SOUL-KILLING FAR-RIGHT WING LAISSEZ FAIR NIHILISM which brought THINGS FALL APART.
For someone like me, who is not religious but an individualist, the ultimate end state I am seeking is in my own life. It’s about my family, my work, my home, my own personal interests. The goal I’m seeking is about things I have a lot of control over, much more than it is about other people. Politics is mostly just something that gets in the way of the real business of life. Our ideal end state is that we can reach the point where we’re able to think about our own lives and not have to care about politics any more.
For the secular leftist, the end state is social and necessarily political. It is all about getting everybody else on board and herding them into his imagined utopia. There are so many “problematic” aspects of life that need to be reengineered, so many vast social systems that need to be overthrown and replaced. But the rest of us are all screwing it up, all the time, through our greed, our denial, our apathy, our refusal to listen to him banging on about his tired socialist ideology.
THAT'S ODD-----THE SOURCE OF ALL THAT IS UTOPIA IS FAR-RIGHT WING----EUGENICS GLOBAL BANKING-----THE LEFT ARE LIVING IN A REAL WORLD.
For the Christian, the ideal end state is safely in the next world and therefore is never in doubt. For the individualist, it’s in his own life, and it’s mostly under his direct control. For the leftist, however, it is all outside his control. It requires other people, a lot of other people, and those SOBs usually refuse to cooperate. Talk about rage-inducing.
If the whole focus of your life is on getting everybody else to agree with you on every detail of your politics and adopt your plans for a perfect society, then you’re setting yourself up to be at war with most of the human race most of the time.
Which means an awful lot for the Angry Left to get angry about.
'Trump-Putin press conference 'disgusting,' Republicans say ...
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Grigory Dukor/Reuters . Republicans blasted President Donald Trump for his remarks on Monday at a press conference alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin'.
We discussed in detail why this sudden rehabilitation of NORTH KOREA'S 'COMMUNIST LEADER' is happening now. The goal of MOVING FORWARD Asia is to bring back MAOIST MARXISM----so too KOREAS----with South Korea the hyper-neo-liberal TIGER of laissez faire capitalism being taken to NORTH KOREAN MARXISM just as is MOVING FORWARD in Western Europe/UK/THE AMERICAS. Trump is simply helping CHINA which will take back control of former US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE nations in Asia reinstate hard core HITLER/STALINIST/MAO MARXISM.
Here in US CRIME BILL 2019 is doing the same-----creating public policy to install more and more and more of far-right wing DEEP STATE extreme wealth extreme poverty LIBERTARIAN MARXISM.

Here’s What Trump Actually Achieved With North Korea
It wasn’t what he said. But it was much more than nothing.
Uri Friedman THE ALTANTIC
Jun 19, 2018
Donald Trump didn’t get much in the way of North Korean denuclearization in Singapore. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
In the days since the summit with Kim Jong Un, critics--including me—have pointed out how little the U.S. president got from North Korea’s leader during their much-hyped meeting. And it’s true that Trump fell far short in that meeting of his stated goal to fully dismantle North Korea’s nuclear-weapons program, and then wildly overstated his achievement by declaring the North Korean nuclear threat over. (It’s not.) But the Trump administration racked up real accomplishments in Singapore that are perhaps best understood by setting aside the president’s grand (and at times groundless) pronouncements. The summit’s modest and provisional results are actually of considerable consequence.
Here’s a rundown of why Trump can reasonably make the case that the Singapore summit was successful and that the United States and the world are safer now than they were before he decided to become the first American president to meet with North Korea’s leader.
1) U.S. concessions to North Korea so far are largely reversible.
If North Korea hasn’t yet given up a lot in negotiations, neither has the United States. Trump can’t retract his decision to hold a summit with and even speak admiringly of the dictatorial rule of Kim Jong Un, just like Kim can’t walk back his decision to release American hostages ahead of the summit. But Trump is right to state that while he has suspended upcoming U.S.-South Korea military exercises that he considers “provocative,” he can always reinstate the drills if nuclear talks collapse. Likewise, the Trump administration has refrained from imposing new sanctions on North Korea as diplomacy proceeds and, in engaging North Korea, has potentially weakened the resolve of countries such as China and South Korea to enforce existing sanctions. But here again, there’s been no easing of U.S. sanctions in exchange for North Korea’s vague, noncommittal promise of denuclearization in Singapore.
This, of course, isn’t all that surprising: Goodwill gestures at the outset of negotiations, when there’s little trust among the parties, tend to be provisional. Experts suspect, for instance, that the North Koreans may still be able to reopen the nuclear-test site that they claimed to have destroyed with great fanfare in the lead-up to the summit.
2) The United States and North Korea are now talking to each other rather than threatening war.
It was just six months ago that Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator and Trump confidant, was telling me there was a 70-percent chance of the president launching an all-out war against the Kim regime if North Korea tested another nuclear device. A month later, Tammy Duckworth, the Democratic senator and military veteran, returned from South Korea and told me that U.S. forces appeared to be operating with the attitude that a conflict “will probably happen, and we better be ready to go.” A Russian academic came back from Pyongyang with a chilling report: The North Korean government “is not bluffing when it says that ‘only one question remains: When will war break out?’” With each test of a bomb or long-range missile, the North moved closer to the capability to strike the United States with nuclear weapons—a development the Trump administration had vowed to prevent at all costs.
Whether or not hostilities were truly imminent, the military brinkmanship was real. And in this climate, people weren’t exactly holding their breath for a swift, negotiated end to the North Korean nuclear program. Around the time that Trump threatened North Korea with “fire and fury” in August, the nuclear scientist Siegfried Hecker, who has visited North Korea’s nuclear facilities several times, argued that the most immediate task for U.S. policymakers was not to address North Korea’s nuclear weapons but to avoid stumbling into nuclear war on the Korean peninsula. He urged Trump to send military and diplomatic officials to Pyongyang to simply talk with and learn more about their North Korean counterparts, and thereby reduce tensions and the risk of dangerous miscalculation. Graham, one of the leading North Korea hawks in Congress, surprisingly went further. When we spoke he wouldn’t rule out a Kim-Trump summit, then a fanciful idea. “I’m not taking anything off the table to avoid a war,” he said.
If these recommendations seemed prudent and urgent at the time, it’s hard to argue only half a year later that the Singapore summit and the flurry of direct, lower-level talks preceding it are meaningless or even reckless. Within months of Duckworth warning darkly that the U.S. military had “seen the writing on the wall,” Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un were signing a statement in which they pledged to jointly “build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean peninsula.” That’s astonishing.

3) Any North Korean denuclearization pledge is remarkable.
Critics of Trump’s North Korea summit have pointed out that Kim’s commitment to “work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” by some unspecified time—squishy wording that might entail the nuclear-armed United States ending its military alliance with South Korea and concluding a peace treaty with North Korea—is actually weaker than the North’s vow in a 2005 statement to abandon “all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs” at “an early date” and pursue the goal of “verifiable denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.”
But this is comparing apples to oranges—or several bombs’ worth of plutonium to a bristling nuclear-weapons arsenal, as it were. While North Korea had declared itself a nuclear power in 2005, it hadn’t yet tested a nuclear bomb. Thirteen years later it has tested six, including most recently a suspected thermonuclear weapon 17 times as strong as the bomb that devastated Hiroshima—plus last year’s successful tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles that may be able to carry nuclear warheads to the United States. The deficiencies in the language notwithstanding, it’s remarkable that a now nearly full-fledged nuclear power would agree in writing to anything involving the ceding of that status. (Granted, the parties to the international Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, which include the United States and other nuclear states, sign on to similarly aspirational disarmament goals.) Also notable: North Korean state media has released a documentary on the Singapore summit that shows viewers the agreed-to language on denuclearization.
The 2005 statement, moreover, came after years of negotiations, not mere months as in the case of the 2018 statement. And the 2005 denuclearization pledge was accompanied by written assurances from the Bush administration to not attack North Korea and to offer it energy and economic assistance. The 2018 denuclearization pledge was made without any such written assurances from the Trump administration, though the president and other U.S. officials verbally echoed these promises before the summit.
4) For the moment, some conditions for a realistic, halfway-decent nuclear deal with North Korea are in place.
In March, just hours before Trump announced his intention to meet with Kim Jong Un, former U.S. Defense Secretary Bill Perry gave me a bleak assessment of what nuclear talks with North Korea could realistically achieve.
In the 1990s, Perry had spearheaded an effort by the Clinton administration to reach a comprehensive agreement for North Korea to abandon its nuclear program and its work on long-range missiles in return for a peace treaty formally ending the Korean War, the gradual normalization of U.S.-North Korean relations, and other concessions. Had the 2000 U.S. presidential election not gotten in the way, the deal may well have succeeded. But Perry argued that what might have bought North Korean denuclearization a couple decades ago had much less purchase today. He suggested offering these same incentives to North Korea if it instituted a ban on nuclear and missile tests, which would be much easier to verify than a more sweeping agreement on the country’s sprawling nuclear infrastructure. (We might not know if North Korea is disclosing all its nuclear weapons and facilities, but we do know when it explodes bombs underground or fires rockets into the Sea of Japan.)
“In 1999 we had a chance of getting denuclearization. I do not believe we will get that today,” Perry told me. A moratorium on tests, while far from a grand bargain, “would be worth having,” he argued, because it would keep Kim from refining the long-range nuclear capability that directly threatens the United States. The Trump administration, he added, could also try to get North Korea to limit the number of nuclear weapons in its arsenal, not build new and improved ones, and not transfer nuclear weapons and technology to other states or non-state actors, though all of these moves would be more difficult to verify. Perry’s proposal essentially aimed to keep a nuclear program that is already a fait accompli from growing more dangerous.
Diplomacy with North Korea hasn’t yet produced even this limited nuclear deal. But as talks proceed it has resulted in a de facto freeze of the North’s tests of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, which Kim announced in April. That means that for the time being, North Korea isn’t experimenting (publicly at least) with its new intercontinental ballistic missiles, detonating nuclear devices, or test-firing nuclear-tipped missiles over the Pacific Ocean as it threatened to do last fall—all of which would signal advances in the North Korean nuclear program and bring the United States and North Korean closer to military conflict.
Tentatively suspending U.S.-South Korea military exercises while North Korea tentatively suspends its nuclear and missile tests is very far off from the “complete, verifiable, and irreversible” dismantling of North Korea’s nuclear program that the Trump administration has demanded. But it’s closer to what Perry has described as a workable outcome of negotiations.
5) Trump is experimenting with a promising politics-first approach to the North Korean nuclear crisis.
In jumpstarting talks with a head-of-state summit, Trump didn’t only reverse the bottom-up process that has shaped inconclusive nuclear negotiations with North Korea over the last 25 years. He also appeared to be prioritizing the transformation of relations between the United States and North Korea over the technical details of constraining the North’s nuclear capabilities. “President Trump places great faith in his own ability to relate to others on a personal basis, and so it does seem like he wants to bolster the political relationship [with Kim] and then trust that will lead to arms control,” James Holmes of the U.S. Naval War College told me. “Politics leads, international law lags. We appear to be about to put this idea to the test.”
And while we don’t yet know the results of the test, this novel approach could potentially succeed in reducing the North Korean nuclear threat, if not eliminating it altogether. If the classic definition of a security threat is the combination of intent and capability to cause harm, U.S officials have tended to fixate on blunting North Korea’s capabilities rather than addressing intent. But intent matters too. As the German political scientist Alexander Wendt once noted, “500 British nuclear weapons are less threatening to the United States than 5 North Korean nuclear weapons, because the British are friends of the United States and the North Koreans are not.”
If there’s any chance of North Korea doing what only one country in history has done before—relinquishing nuclear weapons that it built and controls—it would probably be as a result of a massive shift in Kim Jong Un’s perception of security threats and personal and political calculations. (North Korea claims that the purpose of its nuclear program is to deter U.S. aggression.) F.W. de Klerk, the former South African president who made that unprecedented decision to give up his nation’s atomic bombs, told me that he did so in the early 1990s because he was personally opposed to nuclear weapons; because the Soviet Union, whose aggression South Africa was trying to deter, was disintegrating; and because South Africa was trying to end its international isolation as part of its political transition away from apartheid. (While some speculate that the country’s white leaders didn’t want the incoming black government to possess nuclear weapons, de Klerk denied that this informed his actions.)
George Perkovich, a nuclear-weapons expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, has identified a similar dynamic at play in U.S.-Russian nuclear-arms reduction agreements over the years. “When the political relationships changed and the types of war you were worried about being conducted changed … you could reduce nuclear weapons,” he told me last fall.
6) It’s possible this is the small start of something big.
Reflecting on the significance of the Singapore summit in an interview with the BBC, the former South Korean military officer I-B Chun quoted a Korean saying: “A long journey starts with the first step. And when that first step is taken, the journey is half-finished.” The journey to North Korea’s denuclearization may be a long way from half-finished, and may never finish or may even end abruptly at any moment, but Trump’s meeting with Kim is certainly a first step in the right direction. And we simply don’t know at this point where the next steps, which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his North Korean counterparts will now take, will lead.
“As risky and high-stakes as this entire process is, it makes sense because that’s the way the North operates. Their regime is top-down,” the Korea expert Duyeon Kim noted when we met in Seoul ahead of the Trump-Kim summit. She advised Trump and Kim to settle in Singapore “upon a very simple vision statement on end goals … and then have senior negotiators figure out the details, figure out timetables, figure out implementation.”
That, in fact, is exactly what the two leaders did.
