    Excellent segment,,,,,I’m learning a lot.

    I hope Trump does nothing towards N. Korea other than to warn that retaliation will be massive if they act first.

    The longer I live, the more I understand how wise were the writers of the US Constitution in trying to limit the power of central government.
    A pity we have moved more towards both socialism and simplified federal democracy.

      My exact thoughts about any actions from the Trump administration. At this point the U.S. could look very, very good or very,very bad.

    I hope Trump remember that old movie “wargames”

    The way to win with N. Korea is NOT to play the game.

    Don’t attack. Don’t negotiate with N. Korea. Tell them they lied last time and are not to be trusted. They will not get anything in terms of money, help or trade, even if their population is starving.
    AND if they attack the US Kim will cease to exist.

    And Trump should give/sell military aid to Japan, warning China by back channels that even more help will be given to Japan if China if it does not help with control of N. Korea.

      He doesn’t have to remember anything, CFS you just spelled out US policy. You are so shallow, CFS. DT

        CFS says:

        DT, I’m shallow?

        What would you suggest the US policy should be?

        I’m afraid that the US does something simply because it can, without thinking through the full consequences.
        Trump has recently been making the mistake of childishly opening his mouth before engaging his brain. Likewise Lil’ Kim.

    My comment above about the population starving may sound hard hearted, but I believe any leadership change in N. Korea has to come from within. (And there’s nothing like a starving population to instigate regime change.)

    Musk is right, the challenges faced by our species pale in comparison to the threat by North Korea verses Artificial Intelligence. AI will wipe out our species and we are to blame. Humans are just too successful and their impulses to dominate everything has created a superior technology that mimics us but is much smarter. DT

        Dick Tracy and CFS you are both valuable to our family. Please don’t don’t get into a “prettiest baby in the nursery squabble.” You both are much to bright for trite comments like that.

        By the way, Dick please elaborate on what you meant when you said that CFS was shallow.

        • On August 13, 2017 at 3:45 pm,
          Dick Tracy says:

          Al, I don’t want to get into what CFS said that made me call him shallow, others can read his posts. All I will say is that The US should use it’s considered judgement not to try to beat The North Koreans at the negotiation table, as if they were playing poker. The US should use it’s fortunate duty to assist by example, by sober friendly counsel, and by material aid in the establishment of just democracy throughout the world. You will never get normal times with CFS’s thinking you will only get war. DT

            Al, don’t you see how important it is for our species to avoid war, we need to try a reasonable and rational approach, if we don’t the end result is what has happened in North Korea. I don’t think The US would like a demilitarized zone in Kansas that separated the east from the west. I thought that Americans had fought for union in the civil war, why are you denying it to the Koreans. DT

        • On August 13, 2017 at 5:52 pm,
          Dick Tracy says:

          I have answered your request Al, I think you should attempt to justify or not, why The Americans are denying The Koreans their rights as a country. DT

            Morning Dick Tracy,

            Sorry for the late response.

            I agree that we should not deny the North Korean’s their right to exist as a country. I personally agree with Celente in that the solution to this situation must be not in the form of threats but in the form of “let’s work this out”

      Russian indicted for money laundering.

      U.S. officials described Vinnik in a Justice Department statement as the operator of BTC-e, an exchange used to trade the digital currency bitcoin since 2011.
      U.S. authorities also linked him to the failure of Mt. Gox, a Japan-based bitcoin exchange that collapsed in 2014 after being hacked. Vinnik “obtained” funds from the hack of Mt. Gox and laundered them through BTC-e and Tradehill, another San Francisco-based exchange he owned, they said in the statement.
      It was not possible to reach Vinnik for comment.
      “Just as new computer technologies continue to change the way we engage each other and experience the world, so too will criminals subvert these new technologies to serve their own nefarious purposes,” said Brian Stretch, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California, where Vinnick was indicted in the statement.

      Whistleblowers at MRK claim that MRK doctored its vaccines to get FDA approval. Then when the woman running the CDC approved MRK’s vaccines she was hired by MRK to run their vaccine program. Totally corrupt. And of course MRK paid billions in fines after Vioxx killed 60000 people. They kept selling Vioxx years after they knew it caused heart attacks. MRK is an evil criminal company run by crooks, just like Monsanto and Dow.

    BEIJING (AP) — China’s government appealed to U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday to avoid a “trade war” ahead of what the White House says is a possible announcement of an investigation into whether China is stealing U.S. technology.

    An official told reporters the president would order his trade office on Monday to look into whether to launch an investigation under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 of possible Chinese theft of U.S. technology and intellectual property.

  18. On August 14, 2017 at 8:22 am,
    CFS says:

    China knows it is guilty!
    Heck, they been stealing intellectual property for decades.

    Just go buy a CD or DVD in China.

    We often see that when a US company manufactures something in China, there is another company (Chinese factory) set up just a mile or two away to make similar knock-off products.

    Street pedlars in beijing sell scarfs and other items with the burberry pattern indistinguishable from originals.
    It is even possible to buy “labels” which look like trademark originals to put on items.
