I thought it was a good thing. Then the professor center. Did you know those writers had a colonial mindset? They were Racists and bigots center subconsciously brainwashing you. It only got worse from there, as she realized that every one of her classes at the Ivy League school was infected with what she saw as anti American propaganda reminiscent of the sort she'd grown up with. This story is stunning. She's a North Korean defector from a sworn nuclear powered enemy, the United States, one of the worst human beings on planet Earth. Kim Jong UN Tubs. What is the worst guys ever? Ever. Yet she comes over here, where people starved to death by the tens of thousands.

The man was questioned over what appeared to be fake passports. The passporting questions said the family was from the Dominican Republic. That the man's name was paying. Shaw pang-chang is Chinese for fat bear. However the man also claimed he was from South Korea. Why was a South Korean man with a Chinese name trying to get into Japan using a Dominican passport? He answered. I want to go to Disneyland. As the Japanese officials continue to dig they discovered something both shocking and laughable. The man was actually named Kim Jong Nam. The eldest son of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. When word got back to Kim Jong Il of his son's arrest. He was overcome with embarrassment. Was this really going to be the next leader of North Korea. A man caught sneaking into an enemy country to go to an amusement park or was there someone else who could show better judgment another son who could bring honor to the Kim Dynasty.

Today we'll dive into the rise of Kim Jong UN the third and current leader of the Kim regime. We'll uncover Kim's mysterious childhood and how he was groomed to take control wants his father passed. And how the promise of new leadership ultimately meant a tighter grip on the people of North Korea after his. May Two thousand one arrest Kim Jong Nam and his family were deported to China. Ultimately he would make the gambling city of Macau just a ferry ride away from Hong Kong. His permanent home doing his best to stay out of the limelight. Many around the world considered the two thousand one arrest the beginning of the end of jong-nam and his position as air in fact if actually confirmed a decision that was made much earlier it wasn't his firstborn nor his second who would succeed him but his third Kim John. There is widespread speculation regarding the exact year of Kim Jong UN's birth. According to South Korean intelligence agencies it was January eighth. Nineteen eighty-three however American intelligence claims that the year was nineteen eighty-four according to North Korean propaganda however Kim Jong UN was born in nineteen eighty two the Washington Post Beijing bureau chief and Fifield posits that the reason the year was changed. Nineteen eighty two was to coincide with both his father and grandfather's birth year with ill soon being born in nineteen twelve and Jong Il's changed in nineteen forty two. It helped to create as she puts it a asymmetry. Like boring into the Kim Dynasty. Much of Jong UN's early life is shrouded in mystery or a complicated web of fabrications. What we do know is this. His mother was co young. Cui a famous dancer and Kim Jong Il second concert. He has an older brother. John and a younger sister. Yang Kim Jong Il made sure to keep all of his family separate from one. Another Jong UN and. His siblings rarely interacted with their half brother. Kim Jong Nam instead Kim Jong UN grew up in a lavish but lonely set of houses throughout Pyongyang and beachfront properties in one San about one hundred thirty miles west of the capital. Much of what we know about Kim Jong UN's childhood comes from a man with the pen name. Kenji Fujimoto Fujimoto was the Sushi chef hired to cook for the Kim family. So while the people of North Korea slowly died from starvation and malnourishment Kim Jong UN dined on the finest raw fish. Like all North Koreans Kim Jong UN was educated to be an anti imperialist specifically to hate Japan and the United States these two countries according to the North Korean government are the root of North Korea's problems. Ironically Kim's mother who was born in Japan often took her children to Tokyo Disneyland. But none of these trips included outside friends in fact. Kim's only real friend according to Fujimoto was Fujimoto himself together. The two spent their days watching Kim's favourite sport basketball or listening to music on Fujimoto's Walkman basketball in particular became a major obsession for the future dictator. He watched it religiously as a child and unlike most other kids in North Korea he would walk around dressed in the latest nike or Adidas sneakers and shorts. Outside of Basketball Kim Jong owns other. Joy was playing with military toys specifically model planes and warships. He became so interested in their mechanics that he forced engineers and scientists to answer as many questions years after defecting. His aunt would tell Anna Fifield that his study of planes. And Aeronautics was an obsession. Kim Jong Hoon became his father's favorite child around the time. He was eight mostly because he exhibited traits of a strong leader namely being bossy stubborn. And Sassy even though his brother. Jong you'll was older he would often take orders from Jong UN. It wasn't long before people started calling. Jong UN harm read general however he also started to demonstrate a keen awareness of being a leader. Fujimoto notes that. He had the ability to make good judgments with solid reasoning. He knew when to praise and when to criticize church character. Traits weren't lost on the aging Kim Jong Il as he considered who would replace him in nineteen ninety six when Kim Jong Own was roughly twelve years old. He sent to Bern Switzerland to receive an education under the alias. Pack Hoon all of the Kim children used fake names to conceal their identity. School was never a priority for Kim. A former teacher wants described him as a good student but not an extraordinary one and though he seems to have been friendly with his classmates he was mostly remembered as a loner with very few friends. Those friends though spent their days playing basketball once. The school bell rang years later. Once Kim Jong Hoon became leader of North Korea many wondered if the more liberal.

This was something that his grandfather and his father were not able to do which was to score and meeting with the US president on and unlike him where we kind of have to as you said earlier look through the Keyhole on his intentions. He had tens of thousands of tweets on that the president has written. He had multiple biographies autobiographies and articles about the president to try to glean insights about what is motivating the president when they think No I said this before where it was probably worth trying to figure out what you know. Kim would say When faced with the when faced with the US president something this gold standard for for the regime. It's you know the the president was also very clear that he did not prepare and it was clear that news approaching this also from a point of view of a businessman from New York risk. Kim was thinking of this in trying to explain. This in. The bulb team was thinking of this in terms of in terms of solidifying his own status And not sure it was a complete understanding of how North Korea sees nuclear weapons as part of his. The brand of it's a regime survival. I think him off et. You're is an opportunity in that. He could take advantage of the president's willingness and eagerness to meet before the Singapore summit on which was June two thousand eighteen on before the working level conversations could really get any anything more substantive on the Singapore was to be the Singapore statement on President. Wanted the meeting to happen on certain date so it was not in the North Koreans interest to saying anything more substantive or or more beanie before the event because they were going to get the event anyway and I think at at that point The negotiators had their. Me's cutoff even before they started because the president a had already said yes so when we look at a summit rate of summit. It's two leaders. You're at the peak. There are no bar rails. How do you go back and how do you? How do you leverage that summit to to gain progress and you know so far as we've seen in the past two years north means continue to maintain their facilities on the refurbished ballistic missile facilities? Probably more you know making more physical material. They're maintaining the nuclear test site. And they've said Kim Jong UN has said I'm at the end of last year beginning of this year that he's he's not that interested in talks anymore until the the US changes its ways and so did the policies that the US under the trump administration engaged in which is to say a rhetorical escalation Sort of a flirtation with a war leading to this optical breakthrough In which they agree to meet a series of meetings. Think a total of three face to face meetings. The sisters visit to sow The South for the Olympics and all of these negotiations did it produce anything of consequence or is it really just a a kind of administration fantasy that never came to anything when president trump came back after the Singapore Summit. I think he was still on the plane and he tweeted that That you that the nuclear problem was solved. Note they And and you know Kim Kim Jong UN and the summits with with Cam made it to campaign rallies on the campaign and his campaign materials reward lovers and Ryan the letters between them. I'm so yes I guess I mean. The relationship seen the relationship. The personal relationship between the two men seem okay But that hasn't been translated into real policy. Success on the president has chosen to define colors Asian very narrow way which is the absence or Kim's restraint in not conducting nuclear weapons has staying or Intercontinental Ballistic Missile testing. But the problem is that North Korea under Kim has diversified Made More Mobile. They're realistic missiles. They had the most powerful nuclear test.

Jon Can you say whether or not he's he's not coming to. I don't WANNA come into. I wish you well. I don't want this is what Secretary of state. Mike pompeo said quote. We haven't seen him. We don't have any information to report. Today we're watching it closely. Keeping Track of what's going on not only around Chairman Kim himself but more broadly inside of North Korea. This is an odd statement because it seems to suggest that they know what's going on with Kim but then at the same time you're saying we don't have any information on it so something is not clear and something is not straightforward and. Something isn't right right now inside North Korea with Kim Jong. But here's the bottom line. We simply don't know as we've told you many times on this program. Intelligence on North Korea is very cloudy even for its neighbors South Korea and Japan South Korea. Still saying there no unusual movements. None have been detected in North Korea despite the rumors about Kim's health. That's according to their defense minister. They're stressing that Kim's absence from public view is not new. But here's what we've learned. The Chinese have sent a delegation to North Korea. We also know that a luxury boat has landed on the shores of the one son resort. Where Kim Jong UN is believed to be we also know that his personal train is still there and we also know that. There's still questions about what exactly is happening inside. That villa in wants on so one of the best positioned people outside of North Korea outside of China Japan and South Korea outside of that region to talk to to get some straight forward real deal understanding about what's going on is ambassador Joe DeTrani. He's the former. Us Special Envoy to the six party talks with North Korea. So that means he's sat across the table from North Korea's top diplomats working on a solution to North Korea's nuclear weapons program so he knows North Korea and most things take place. They're better than almost anyone. We've had him on this program for years. We continue to talk with him regularly. And He's here today to share some insight now we had two conversations with him one day and one a week ago. So we're going to give you both of those conversations. Today we start with April twenty first. We asked him about reports that Kim and had heart surgery and that he was in grave condition. I think the news is probably accurate that he had a procedure. Done probably hard related. I mean the man has way issue weight problems and and smoker and obviously eat some pretty busy schedule. So there was a procedure done I'm not sure How one defines grave. I've read some reports indicating you know us You know very ill but I don't. I could see procedure but I have a sense being not not seeing any movement of the military. We didn't see any visits from a Chinese doctor or French doctors or other things that this may be somewhat routine heard of him having heart issues before. Well it's in his family. Right is a is a is a father. Kim Jong Il too hard heart attacks and died from heart seizure. Apparently so and the reports have been Sort of anecdotal. Given the you know the issue of his drinking and smoking or Weight issues and so forth so I don't think there's any granularity as to specifics in regards to a heart condition per se. But I think there's enough information to say given his family history with his father both likely had some issues related to his heart. Give us a sense. Joe Of what this means for national security. Not only there but here this news and this situation right now. This is pretty significant. I mean if if indeed Kim Jong UN is in grave condition is a condition right now. this is a very significant event. But personally I believe Kim Jong UN has been looking at this issue for some time. He's been in power for almost eight years. He's removed many of those who were very close to his father and not loyalist hem. He's put in place. People are loyal to him. Assistant Kim Jong is now has been elevated to the Standing Committee of the Police Girl. An alternate member chain chain room. Hey has been promoted to be the president of the Supreme People's Assembly which is the head of state so he's put his loyalist family members all around him knowing that succession in North Korea is always going to be difficult. Issue could be difficult in regards to. Who's going to be taking over in regards to the military. I mean we saw the execution of young. Some tech in two thousand thirteen is simple. We saw twenty seventeen the assassination of his older brother into Phnom in Malaysia. So this is something. That's always been on the mind of Kim Jong UN. Which speaks to how tenuous the circumstances must be dog career? He obviously must have known that he had to prepare to have loyalists around in the not only support him but who could replace him in place in case he is the longer in power so you mentioned his sister. Kim Yo Joan. There's some other siblings as well. Aren't there yes. He has an older brother. Kim Young Joe who could Certainly play a role he he's been on the on the margins of a political issues in. North Korea apparently to music he elects Eric Clapton. And things like that. But this is a man who could be used Certainly is the Kim family. But he's not been as pronounced as Kim Jong. There is a is a system whose about four years younger than kindergarten. If Kim Jong Hoon is in this situation Is he incapacitated or not and if he were incapacitated what will what signs would we say? Why think if Kim Jong on a day to a was capacity incapacitated a we probably would see some moving up the military. Some of the security services We would probably see some Moving of leadership elements chain room Hain the Supreme People's Assembly. We will see some some movement going on certainly The In Pyongyang I think we would see some of that activity up and I. I think that maybe even messages that would be going out to various embassies Chair.

And and since we talked about Jesus a little bit Anna prepared a wonderful post today for the members in the third hour of the show about gene Simmons, disastrous two thousand two interview on NPR. So it's a lot of fun. Don't miss that. Okay. Anna. What's next, right? Following Donald Trump's the second summit with Kim Jong UN this time in Vietnam. It was reported that their negotiations unfortunately fell apart, and they have not reached a deal. Now it's unclear what will happen in the future. But here's what we know. So far, according to reporting from the New York Times Kim had offered to dismantle the North's most important nuclear facility, if the United States lifted the harsh sanctions imposed on his nation, but would not commit to do the same for other elements of its weapons program. And so there are various facilities in North Korea. That are currently producing these weapons and so the United States argues. Hey, if you want us to completely lift these sanctions, you have to completely denuclearize, and it appears that Kim Jong Hoon was unwilling to do that. Now with that said, I want you to hear from Donald Trump who did give a press conference on this in the early morning hours. It's take a quick look. Pretty much all day with Kim Jong on who is he's quite a guy and quite a character. And I think our relationship is very strong..
