North Korea Nightmare

September 5, 2017 |

I hope you had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, the weekend when we traditionally say goodbye to summer didn’t give us the chance to say so long to all the bad news of summer. Instead, the bad news on the Gulf Coast lingered on, and in the case of North Korea, just kept getting worse.

Over the weekend, North Korea triggered two earthquakes with what’s believed to be a successful test of a hydrogen bomb, and South Korea believes that rogue nation is planning more missile tests. The idea of Kim Jong Un having thermonuclear warheads and ICBMs that can deliver them as far away as the US mainland may have suddenly gone from a future hypothetical to a clear and present danger.

President Trump is being criticized for his blunt military threat response (even citing our own nuclear capability) instead of calling for more diplomacy, but one wonders just how many nukes will have to land in California before the left finally realizes that Kim Jong Un considers diplomatic talks to be nothing more than extra time to hone his nuclear missile technology even further. Frankly, I don’t want to hear any more arrogant condescension from Ivy League blowhards whose “smart diplomacy” allowed North Korea (and now Iran) to have nuclear reactors in the first place.

Trump finds himself, along with the rest of the world, having inherited an incredibly dangerous situation that’s not of his making. Maybe it’s time for those who made it to show a little diplomacy by buttoning their lips and letting the people who know how to neutralize military threats suggest a response.

    I admire you for many things, particularly, on how you articulate your values and answer questions; and yes, there is a "but" following.....
    I don't, for the life of me, understand why you and your daughter Sara would even set foot on the set of the View. Because no matter how well you answer their questions, this bunch of crude, vile and hateful women, as well as their audience, will not and cannot accept the truth of which you speak. Their ignorance will not allow it; therefore, what have you accomplished but just given them and the show more undue attention and you, fodder for their cause.

    Robert Lewis was spot on when in his Men's Fraternity series definition of a Real Man:
    "A real man rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously, and expects God's greater reward."

    Thank God we finally have a President that gets it and does this to a "T"!

    Just want to say thank you and great job for your composure and stead fastness on the View today. So glad you did not allow them to "out speak" you, for lack of a better word. They are a very tough bunch of women. Nasty hater types in my opinion. We need more people like you to help heal the gigantic divide in this country and less people like the women on the view who keep digging their "hate heels" in. Also Sarah did a great job too on the show, same as she does each day working for the President. Thank you both!!
