DEMOCRATS, LEFT AND MSM MIGHT WANT TO HOLD THEIR TONGUES AND GLEE OF FAILURE …
As reported at the BBC, the leaders of North and South Korea have met in the demilitarized border area between the two countries. This meeting is only the second between South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the North’s Kim Jong-un. Many in the MSM and on the LEFT ridiculed and mocked President Trump when he canceled the summit ahead of the planned June 12th date to be held in Singapore. Because the LEFT was more happy that Trump not gain a victory than the United States and the world. However, President Trump stated that he was still optimistic and maybe it would still go on. This surprise meeting between South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the North’s Kim Jong-un is certainly a positive sign.
The leaders of North and South Korea have met in the demilitarised border area between the two countries.
The meeting is only the second between South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the North’s Kim Jong-un.
It comes as the two sides continue efforts to put a historic US-North Korea summit back on track.
US President Donald Trump cancelled the summit, scheduled to be held in Singapore on 12 June, but later suggested it might still go ahead.
The latest talks were held on the northern side of the Panmunjom truce village, between 15:00 and 17:00 local time (06:00 and 08:00 GMT), Mr Moon’s office said.
“Both leaders exchanged opinions… for the successful holding of the North Korea-US summit,” it added, saying that Mr Moon would announce the outcome of the talks on Sunday morning.
In Washington, Trump administration spokeswoman Sarah Sanders confirmed that an advance team of White House and Department of State officials would leave for Singapore this weekend, as originally scheduled, to prepare for a possible summit there.

UTAH MAN FREED!!!
26 year old Joshua Holt has been freed after having been incarcerated in a Venezuelan jail since 2016. Holt and his wife, Thamy, have been held in a Venezuelan prison since 2016. President Donald Trump announced the release this morning, “Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela,” Trump tweeted. “Should be landing in D.C. this evening and be in the White House, with his family, at about 7:00 P.M. The great people of Utah will be very happy!”
A Utah man who has been incarcerated in a Venezuelan jail since 2016 is set to be released, U.S. officials said Saturday.
Joshua Holt, 26, has been jailed in Venezuela after he traveled to the South American country in the summer of 2016 to marry Thamara Candelo, whom he met on a website for Mormon singles. The two planned to return to the U.S. after getting married, but where jailed in El Hilcolde on what human rights groups said were largely trumped-up charges.
“Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela. Should be landing in D.C. this evening and be in the White House, with his family, at about 7:00 p.m. The great people of Utah will be very happy!” President Donald Trump said in an early morning tweet.
Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah also provided a statement on the Holt’s release.
President Donald Trump Posthumously Pardons Boxer Jack Johnson … Finally, It Took President Trump to Right the Century Old Wrong
YEAH, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SUCH A RACIST, ISN’T HE … TRUMP PARDONS FIRST BLACK BOXING HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPION.
Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed a full pardon for former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson. For those who are too young or unfamiliar with who Jack Johnson was, he was the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was convicted of so-called violating the Mann Act more than a century ago. And it is about time, it has only taken 97 years.
I find it amazing that it was President Donald Trump who finally issued this posthumously full pardon. Trump, the president who the LEFT and minorities call a racist. Really? One would have thought that Barack Obama would have righted this wrong. But no, he did not. Black America needs to wrap their head around that. How does the first black president in Barack Obama not pardon Jack Johnson? It is almost inconceivable. Or the so-called first black president, Bill Clinton? Maybe black America needs to take a real look at Trump and determine for themselves who really has their back. Who really wants them to succeed and who just wants to use them as political pawns.
Ex-heavyweight champion Jack Johnson pardoned by President Donald Trump for 1913 conviction
President Donald Trump signed a full posthumous pardon for former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson in a surprise Oval Office ceremony alongside actor Sylvester Stallone, former heavyweight boxer Lennox Lewis, and others.
“It’s my honor to do it. It’s about time,” Trump said during the ceremony in the Oval Office.
“He was treated very rough, very tough,” Trump said of Johnson on Thursday as he signed the pardon.
In 1913, Johnson, a noted boxing legend, was convicted by an all-white jury with violating the Mann Act after transporting a white woman he was dating across state lines for “immoral purposes.”
He served one year in prison.
Under the Obama administration, the Department of Justice opted not to recommend a posthumous pardon for Johnson.
Jack Johnson, the former heavyweight champion of the world and the first African-American boxer to hold that title, was serving a 10-month stint at Leavenworth prison in 1921 when he sent President Woodrow Wilson a letter.
On Thursday, President Trump finally answered that letter, granting Johnson a full and unconditional pardon for his 1913 conviction of a crime that amounted to traveling with a white woman.
Along the way, Johnson’s 97-year road to a presidential pardon was paved by biographers, boxing champions, senators, journalists, historians, musicians — and ultimately the actor Sylvester Stallone, whose conversation with Trump about the Johnson case led to just the third posthumous pardon knowingly granted by a president.
Johnson was finally vindicated, but vindication wasn’t what he wanted. He wanted his freedom.
But Johnson did apply for a pardon in 1920, as he sat in prison to serve a one-year sentence for violating the Mann Act. Even the attorney general at the time had reservations about the case, since the Mann Act was intended to punish human trafficking — not consensual relationships.
Harvey Weinstein Turns Himself in to Authorities … Will There Be Justice?
It was anticipated that Harvey Weinstein would turn himself in, now its official. The downfall of Harvey Weinstein, once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, just got even more real. Weinstein turned himself into authorities this morning to the New York Police Department at the First Precinct in Tribeca. More than 80 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd and Angelina Jolie. Weinstein is likely looking at first degree and third degree rape charges and a first degree criminal sexual act charge from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Weinstein has denied any wrongdoing.
Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender to authorities Friday to face sex assault charges in connection with attacks on multiple women.
The fallen Hollywood honcho is expected to be charged with preying on Lucia Evans, who told investigators that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004, and at least one other accuser, sources said.
His attorney Benjamin Brafman declined to comment Thursday.
Evans told The New Yorker she was an incoming college senior trying to break into the film business when she met Weinstein at a nightclub.
The movie mogul invited her to the Miramax office. Soon after she arrived for the daytime meeting, Evans said, Weinstein pulled her head down to his crotch.
“I said, over and over, ‘I don’t want to do this, stop, don’t,’ ” she told the magazine.
“I tried to get away, but maybe I didn’t try hard enough. I didn’t want to kick him or fight him.”
Evans said the hulking Weinstein ultimately “overpowered” her.
“I just sort of gave up,” she said.
After being booked at the Lower Manhattan precinct, Weinstein and lawyer will next head to criminal court for an arraignment hearing later today to enter a plea. At the hearing, a predetermined bail of $1 million will be set, and Weinstein’s passport will be handed over to authorities due to flight-risk concerns.
