"The severity of the so-called crime. And this is how North Korea keeps people from speaking out, because while you may be willing to criticize the regime and take the punishment from that as anybody going to be willing to risk their parents and their children future freedom as well. I mean generally the answer is no and defectors who have spoken to have said to me that in North Korea if you object to the system, you don't try to change it. You try to leave like that as the outlet for that you try to escape the. Pression rather than get rid of the repression is the structure to encourage people to spy are inform on their neighbors eb, -solutely anybody in North Korea could be an informant. And the way the whole system is structured is to create this so at a household level. There are neighborhood groups of about forty households always led by busybody middle aged woman, whose job, it is to keep tabs on everybody in her unit and is a joke and North Korea. That, that woman knows how many spoons you have in your kitchen like she knows so much about you and your life. She knows how many spoons are in your kitchen this that household SP of it. But then with an every workplace every school, every government department, there are also groupings there, where people are supposed to go and embark on self criticism sessions with a will criticize themselves for maybe not being a. Vow to Nuff, follow of Kim Jong UN or they will also be encouraged to read on other people this, so there is this real system set up to encourage people to tell on the people like that, and to win brownie points for doing so, but also the level of surveillance in terms of take -nology their cell phones now in North Korea, but this software in them to be able to keep tabs on what people are doing the hostess designed to spy on everybody at every ten and I was stunned by this fact every house has a radio on its wall. That can't be turned off or to another station. It's the government station. That's right. Yeah. The every house has the I've seen this radio and actually taking video of one time when I went into a showcase apartment, it spouts political propaganda all the time. The dial cannot be changed. The volume can be tuned, up and down, but never off. So there is really no escaping the system. Do we know the scale of, of labor camps, or reeducation centers, people have big there? We don't know for sure, but the estimates something between one hundred twenty thousand, maybe as many as a quarter of a million people are housed in these camps. We can save from satellite imagery, that they continue to exist. In fact, that they have been consolidated under Kim Jong UN's when you look from the sky, you can see the barracks, where people that kept you can often see the minds with people are forced to work next to the camp. So these camps still continue to exist. They are, you know, really, really cruel places where people are forced to work for hours on end with very, very little food. And with very little prospect of release. If you're in one of the most severe political prison camps. Kham John was clearly man, not to be trifled with.

"From the city of angels near the Pacific Ocean. Good morning. Good evening wherever you may be across nation around the world. I'm George Noory. Welcome to coast to coast AM later tonight. The power of the mind, here's what's happening. Well, we were just talking about this during last night show. And a jury has found that a man developed cancer from exposure to roundup weed killer that he used in his yard. It's the second case to go to trial over the harms of the Monsanto. Bayer product the six person jury the US district court in San Francisco now is set to begin hearing the evidence to separately way, whether bears Monsanto unit should be held liable a decision that could bring substantial financial damages against the company the initial verdict marks another setback for beer, which just bought man Santo, which has come under intense pressure since a jury in August reached a two hundred eighty nine point two million dollar verdict in the first case ever over the weed killer to go to trial. The jury came down soon after bear finalized its acquisition of Monsanto that two hundred eighty nine million dollar figure was reduced bear faces lawsuits from about eleven thousand. Two hundred farmers home gardeners landscapers claiming that glyphosate based herbicides caused non Hodgkin lymphoma in other cancers. Six more trials are due to start this year in federal and state courts. Now Jeffrey Smith who was with us last night talking about this very case is with us for the reaction. Did you expect this Jeffrey? Well, I've actually I was actually kinda nervous because judge Chao brea had created very unusual circumstances. It really tied the hands behind the back of the plaintiff is he normally when you want to show that something causes cancer. You want to discredit look so-called science of the industry pays for research to occur. But what he did was. He said, well, you can't show Monsanto tries to manipulate regulatory agencies or manipulate science. You have to argue just the science to see if roundup caused cancer in phase one of the trial. And then if you say that roundup caused the cancer then face to determine whether there's liability and so the judge actually dressed down the the lawyer for the plaintiff sanctioning or five hundred dollars. I was there when the opening arguments when he treated her like, I it was it was absolutely disgusting. We found out later that he used to work for a law firm that represented Monsanto, and I guess that means that he chose not to recuse themselves thinking that he didn't have the ties, but it certainly did not feel kosher. But when it came so when it would it turns out that we actually one phase one of the trial with the inability to give the complete evidence that speaks well for the eleven thousand two hundred people who are waiting for their day in court because when the first guy law guy won the the trial the capitalisation of bear dropped by thirty billion is huge few weeks. What's going to happen? If there's a huge. Award in this case, followed by class actions with eleven thousand people and Jeffrey is sprayed on produce. It's sprayed actually on the graves. The wheat barley, the rise, oats, actually have the highest amount of glyphosate residues on lentils and mung beans and potato fields and sweet potatoes and sunflowers, and it's an hour juice. It's in beer, it's in wine. So we say go organic to minimize your exposure, you won't eliminate it completely because it's even in the air and in the rain in areas where it's used a lot, but you want to minimize it. Because not only is it a class two a carcinogen, but it also damages the gut bacteria, it makes it difficult to use minerals. It can block the mitochondria can mess up hormones neurotransmitters the digestive system. It basically is like the Darth Vader chemical if you could imagine a chemical or a molecule, they can disable the phone day. -ation of our health. You're talking about Monsanto's glyphosate. Appreciate the update. Jeffrey, thank you so much.

The Trump administration is privately discussing how to respond should North Korea decided to conduct another satellite launch as talks between Washington and North Korea appear to be at another impasse. Let's check in with Howard bloom, the author of the genius of the beasts than the Lucifer principle. What do you think of all of this Howard? Well, we're in a very dangerous position in our relationship with North Korea for two reasons reason number one is that satellite imagery, indicates that North Korea may be preparing to launch its first satellite and three years. Yup. Watch of a satellite, as you know, will really test, and intercontinental ballistic missile it'll test a rocket the contoss a nuclear warhead it L A New York, Houston, a Washington. The Trump administration. As you indicated is stumped about how to respond to make military move and enraged China. Does it add more sanctions and pretend that it is a complex something? When in fact, it has not or does it ignore the launch pretend that we are protected from war by our president's ability to term, Kim Jong UN claiming that the president's term protects us with Korean nuclear threats would be to the president's advantage in the twenty twenty election. It would allow him to claim that if he were removed from office, not only what are Konami collapse. But North Korea would go back to its strengths to turn America into a sea of fire. A look Kim Jong UN is a master of the art of the deal. But in his case, it's the martial art of the deal Kim believes it's his job to win. What he calls quote victory after victory in the war without gunfire against the imperialists close quote. And he believes that he's inherited. This unique skill in the martial art of the deal from his grandfather came we also who founded the Kim regime in North Korea nineteen forty eight and from his father, Kim Jong UN. Who got favors from the west without living up to any of his nuclear promises for seven years Kim Joon believes in the words of his mouth piece, the official North Korean newspaper Sinmun that his main jobs. This month is to quote reject and frustrate all pressure arbitrary practices, and moves of aggression by foreign forces. And right now that pressure is Donald Trump's key tool. It's sanctions. So what does the North Korean great leader the people likely to do next? He will launch North Korea's next satellite claim it as a peaceful move and use it as a bargaining chip. With our gear leader. President Trump Kimmel use that satellite launch to normalize the existence of North Korea as a nuclear nation with long range ballistic missiles that are capable of nuking any world capital from Tokyo London. Meanwhile, here is danger at number two South Korea's president moon. Jae in has had four some of his own with Kim's along those summits. The South Korean president has agreed to quote, bring forward the future of unification. Of the two Koreas, and he has agreed to dismantle twenty two guard posts in route removed mines on a border. Who's two million mines and one hundred eighty six miles barbed wire has helped keep North Korea bay for sixty six years. In fact, the South Korea has going further he's agreed to building highways and railroads between the two Koreas transportation arteries that North Korea could use for an instant invasion of the south. Now, remember North Korea has invaded the south once before that invasion Krieger, the Korean war of nineteen. Fifty South Korean president moon has given away the store without knowing it. He may have agreed to hand over the south in a decade or two to the Kim regime. Meanwhile, is, you know, our president is Santa Kim Jong UN this suspension over annual military exercises with South Korea, and our president has also handed Kim Jong on a place on the world stage. In other words, our president has normalized North Korea's position as a world power. So far Kim Jong on is doing extremely well in his war without gunfire. He's winning his black belt in the martial art of the deal. It's a it's a deal to be sure. Thank you very much.

So the cable companies have an incentive to keep pumping up the prices for internet services. Make up make a difference there. The other thing that's happening. Is that people are trying to decide what streaming services to get? Because there are so many so many of them, and they're hiring some of our very narrow niches, for example, if you want live channels, there's there's there's swings. There's YouTube TV, there's direct TV. Now, there's others that are in the pipeline. If you want premium services, and you don't really care about movies because net flicks is really been going into their own productions you have net which is the biggie. There were services like film struck that we're wonderful at bringing classic movies now criteria that that struck was terminated with AT and T merged with Time Warner criterion is launching their own channel next month. And I'm very excited about, but the point is there are so many of these there were science streaming channels. They're a British programming TV channels. They're all different. They're all separate. They all have different apps. To run them. They all have different user interfaces. And of course, you're looking at all those separate monthly fees. So the question is how many nine ninety five a month. How many eleven ninety ninety five a month? How many these are you going to be able to handle and because they come and go and her mutating in so many different ways we have gone from that that kind of one cable TV set up that we'd love to hate to this accord acopia of streaming choices. That's just a giant miss mishmash. That's very unstable. So where this is going to end up. It's hard to say I suspect there's going to be significant consolidation in the good news for the consumer Lorne. It could be. With a big. There's no I wouldn't bet the farm on this on this one yet how this is gonna come out because when you have these mergers, and you have these consolidations what can frequently happen is that only the most popular services survive.

"To America trends, adding some of the political topics of the day and some of the worldwide things happening, President Trump in Vietnam right now, preparing to meet with North Korea's Kim Jon later in the week for their second summit together at all there. It is welcome. That's just adorable. Also, talking about Venezuela stuff is going down there national emergency declaration congress getting an Attila over that President Trump says he might veto any action. They take against it got the ISIS bride all kinds of things to talk about with Mr. Bart Marcos career diplomat under secretary for President, George W Bush, and we're so thrilled always have on here. He's a contributor for ops ostlund dot com. Hey, hey. Bart. How're you doing fine? Thanks. How are you? Amy good off the top of your head. Do you know what your last articles was on plans? We can brag about you know, I don't have to be honest with you. Right. Yeah. Oh, it's so funny. So so President Trump is a Vietnam. Now, what do you think he hopes to establish with this people say, you're never gonna rain Kim Jong UN. But then you know, he's got the art of the deal. Right. Maybe sure. And you know, you talk about your carrot and your stick already has reigned in Kim, Jon he used the stick a very big one. He said I have a bigger button. I've got a nuclear button to and mine is a lot bigger and essentially told Kim Jong UN this was six months ago. He said stop threatening with your tree little missiles that don't work very well. And that you've only got six of that's nothing I can destroy your country. Now, let's talk about what could happen and an all Trump wanted. He's already gotten Kim Jong UN is stop threatening to blow up the world. He stopped threatening to blow up Guam stop threatening to block, South Korea. And he stopped threatening to send missiles to Los Angeles or San Diego. And we're we're we're out of Bart. Thanks for thinking of us here. I'm thinking of you guys. Thank you. And he stopped testing. So Trump has gotten his bare minimum now he would also like to see complete denuclearization. And that's where the carrot comes in. You're not going to get that with a stick. When there's an old parable about the the north wind and the sun in a competition. Trying to make a man take code off in the wind blew as hard as he could in this cold as he could in the man just held his cO closer and closer around him. The sun came out and beamed in shown this nice, warm Ray. And the man said man, it's hot and he took his coat off. Trump is coming in as the nice, warm sun. Now, this is great. We're going partying all this wisdom here today. This is down. Great. This Minter would be proud of me. If she did I still remember that story you need to impart that I'm sure with common core. No one's learning this, and there's all kinds of things missing. So bring your lessons any day, my friend. So so Trump is coming in now and say, look, you could be rich. You could be you president of the wealthiest country or an extremely wealthy country beyond your wildest dreams. In fact, Kim you could be a beachfront real estate mogul like me, and it all goes back to that video that he sent him that everybody made fun of. But that's the carrot. And he's saying give up your weapons right now you're under sanctions, and no we're not gonna lift them. No. We're not gonna lift him till you get rid of your weapons that you get rid of your weapons will lift them. And we'll make trade deals, and you will become wealthy and successful. And that does appeal to him. He likes some of the glamour, and and the and the hoity toity -ness of lectures. Say non North Korea things, but let's not forget one other huge when that happened right away was when we had it was a year ago first week of may three hostages that have been in North Korea for I don't even remember how long got released for the mainstream media couldn't make enough not of a non issue of it. But they're Trump and Milania war in the middle of the night, welcoming them home back home from all this time. Boy, oh boy. That was again, I believe they are happy and their families are happy to have the back. Sort of looking right here to see how long they were. The three of them came home. And may not meet means something to everybody. But for that family and for people who go through things like this. What a promise, and that's President Trump going out on a limb for specific thing wasn't. I don't believe he's in this for political when he's not in this for politics. He doesn't care. So. And you know, once again what he's doing? And I said that some back in the beginning of the year when we were first talking about this. He is conducting diplomacy out in the open. It's like, you know, most people like their diplomacy cut up in little cubes on their plate like like they like their meat, and they don't like to see where it came from President Trump is going out and saying, hey, you know, what it comes from an animal like that one. And I'm going to slaughter it, and I'm gonna get it. And I'm going to clean it. And I'm gonna skin it. And I'm going to bet your it. And then I'm going to cook it up, and you're going to have a great sue. And and people are saying, oh, you shouldn't. You know, what you're gonna do before him. Have it all precooked he'd say? No, let's go do it. And see what happens. This is how this is how great decisions are made to strong leaders get together and they sit down and they make an agreement. Boy, I love that. My name's President Trump. I'm making some studio sit back and watch. How it's done. I love it. Yeah. So some of the those who oppose President Trump will say, well, they said they were taking down some of their nuclear sites. But here they are doing more. I suppose I'm not a career diplomat like you with all this experience. But I'll Becca some back and forth. It's not a straight line to success. It's a little bit wavy and ups and downs. So how would you assess all that everything in diplomacy is two steps forward and one step back when you're when you're negotiating with an enemy and and make no mistake North Korea is an enemy, they treat their people terribly. They treat defectors even worse. They treat their enemies badly. Kim is not doing this out of the goodness of his heart. He's doing this in a cynical ploy to gain advantage. The President Trump is saying, okay. Do you want to make a cynical ploy? Let me see if I can let me see if I can take that and take your self interest and show you that your alternate self interest. Is in removing those we can't go in there and verify every single site. We can't go in there and take away the nuclear missiles, President Obama allowed him to develop his nuclear program away. So did the man who had. Yeah. I just saw someone post yesterday about the man Obama that had no what's the word. No chaos. No, no, no, no drama. No drama. No, no. Laugh because there's a whole list of it that. There's there's some stuff that the mainstream media didn't report on these things, and no one paid attention. Obama could do no wrong. Yeah. Well, if you do nothing, then there's nothing to criticize. I remember once when I was first getting started doing a little bit of some volunteer political work. There was a guy that I knew that was running for. I think it was a state delegate here in Virginia. And and she wanted to know what he could how he could differentiate himself from the incumbent who'd been there for a long time. And and I said, well, let me see if I can do a little research and find out and she had never voted on anything. Controversial. She's simply didn't vote if it was controversial. And and there was nothing to criticize her for because she had done nothing. But it works for her it worked. She's still there. My friend lost knocked on every single door door in that district. Talk to everybody that answered the door, but he still lost. So it.

It's worth that's worth the need. Our scream, isn't it? More than say so lifetime agony was for us. So we know yesterday that the or the day before I guess their time the nuclear talks melted down. Vietnam between President Trump and Kim Jong UN yesterday. President Trump was talking about whether or not Kim Jong UN was in part responsible or in. In totality responsible for auto warm. Beers death. You might remember outta warned beer seventeen year old over there on some exchange thing, I think the poster in any took a poster down from a wall and they killed him essentially, they put him in a in a labor camp, and he was tortured and beaten and he came back just before he died back in critical critical condition and the poor guy had been badly abused. Here's what President Trump said about Kim Jong UN's culpability in that. I really don't think it was in his interest at all. I know the won't be family. Very well. I think they're an incredible family. What happened is horrible. I really believe something very bad happen to them. And I don't think that. The top leadership knew about it. And when they had to send them home on by the way, I got the prisoners back. I got just back and auto was one of the hostages, but okay back in shape that was not even to be talked about I find it. I thought it was horrible. Now, the others came back extremely healthy. But okay back in a condition that was just terrible. And I will I did speak about it. And. I don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen. Just wasn't advantage ULA that. Those prisons are rough rough places and bad things happened. But I really don't believe he was he I don't believe he knew about it. Tell you that he did not tell you feel badly about it speak to him. He knew the case very well. But he knew it later. No. And. Got a lot of people big country people. Those camps. You have a lot of people do really bad things happen to auto. It's a really really bad thing. Why are you on each else? Be. He tells me that he didn't know about it. And I will take him at his word. Why wouldn't you think of it is worth like Putin? Clearly, the guys man of integrity and honor. Oh, that's I love it. He found out about it later really North Korean captured an American Andy found out about a way as much later stuff. There's zero percent chance of that zero percent. That's he Kim Jong UN new full. Well, and probably ordered it. So I don't know why the defensive the guy don't either strange..

"We know where your secret testing facilities. Are we know where everything is, you know, it's funny because when the when the two of them came out initially instead of that round table. Kim Jong UN look a little edgy. To me. The first time. I mean, he was smiling and everything like that. And it's almost as though he was in a position where he didn't want to be. And then I go back to the two or three days before the summit where he reportedly had a meeting with some Chinese officials and the reports coming back for that. The the red Chinese were telling Kim Jong UN look you play hardball here and push back as much as much as you can. And it it almost looked to me now in retrospect that Kim Jong UN and that initial appearance look like he won't. Wanted to do more. But couldn't because the what the rich because let's face it. The North Koreans. Don't do anything without the blessing of of red China calms. Yeah, you're right about that. President also said that Kim promised him. There would be no further testing. The fact is that he also said he's not going to do testing. And he said that recently, and he said it again to be just a little while ago. He doesn't wanna do testing. He's not going to do that. That's a big thing. No rockets. No anything. And I believe when he tells me that I will take him at his word. I think if there's any further testing that scuttles the next summit, and I don't think Kim Jong UN wants that the one thing that the president said, and I don't believe I believe the president. I don't believe Kim Jong on this has to do with Otto warmbier. I don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen. Just wasn't to his advantage to allow that to happen. Those prisons are rough rough places and bad things happened. But I really don't believe that. He was he I don't. I believe he knew about I don't think he's a person on the planet. That does not believe that Kim Jong didn't know about auto warmbier you have an American in custody. You're darn tooting. He knew now did he know what kind of torture kind of things were being performed on that I can't speak to. But this is a guy that executes his own family members. This is the guy that killed people with an anti aircraft gun in an execution. So I don't believe it for a second Frank that Kim Jong on did not know about the fate of Otto warmbier. I think what the what the Trump is doing is trying to maintain this relationship that he believes is a cordial one with Kim Jong UN, and even if it means that that he asked too tall a little white lie here that doesn't maybe wanna upset Kim Jong UN into to the point where he's going to be reluctant to pursue Andy. It's probably what he told the president. I didn't know anything about it. If I would have stopped it or would not have happened under my watch. But but again, we don't know you look at the pattern of what he has done the human rights violations. And now he is executed members of his own family. He's again any level of care compassion for auto warmbier. I'm sure that. Anything like that? He would have known about six forty five hundred WCBS, traffic.

"Dr louver is under the weather today. Michael Philip police it again. Glad to do it. And hopefully tomorrow. And we'll feel better. Coming up this hour, the latest on the North Korean summit wall. You look at the more fallout from the rat on the hill yesterday and. Couple of local stories as well involving the Preakness and the minimum wage we're gonna that just a second. All right. So let's let's take a look at what leadership is for just a second for the eight years. The Barack Obama was president of the United States. He did squat nothing terrain in North Korea. He didn't do a thing didn't lift a finger kick canned down the road. Indeed. While he was sucking up and bow down to other foreign leaders. He basically ignored Kim Jong UN and his father and basically North Korea was able to grow their nuclear program and at the same time he was handing over eventually a nuclear weapon to the Iranians. Iran nuke deal. So we have this president who they was criticized after little rocket, man. Remember that fire and fury the likes of which you'll never seen. He was sending missiles over Japan and South Korea. Well, shortly thereafter, the missiles stopped and the reason why they stopped because Kim Jong UN believes that Donald Trump is serious about what he is saying. And now we finally upper sixty eight years, there's there's a potential to end the Korean war because it was never officially ended. Right. And you can end the Korean war. You could eventually have Korea North and South Korea. Maybe trading with each other. I don't think I ever be reunification that would be the ultimate dream. But that's never going to happen. I think but you have at least now the North Korean dictator coming to the table not once but twice. So as I warned earlier this week, do not expect big things coming out of the summit is ongoing process and the president yesterday, Barack Obama had done something I would envision Obama going sitting down with and basically signing off on the deal to say you had a deal, and then he would be glorified and lionized in the media's the the great one has struck. Again, are our dear leader in both. So the president walks away walks away yesterday announced that early this morning after the ending the meeting abruptly with Kim Jong UN spent pretty much all day with Kim Jong UN who is. He's quite a guy and quite a character. And. I think our relationship is very strong. But at this time we had some options that at this time we decided not to do any of the options. And we'll see where that goes. But it was it was a very interesting today's, and I think actually it was a very productive today's. But sometimes you have to walk, and this was just one of those times exactly that's leadership that Ray Reagan. Did it? Trump is doing it. I mean, again, I just you walk away when the deal what what was the deal while the deal was that Kim was willing to shut down his young young nuclear enrichment facility testing site. Just one of many in exchange you wanted the sanctions completely lifted. US sanctions South Korea European sanctions, and that was gonna fly because the president told him, and this is something that Kim did not know that we knew he has other secret testing sites facilities underground elsewhere the were spotted by the CIA, the NSA all of our intelligence agencies. The geospatial intelligence agency all picked up these sites and our president and Mike Pompeo, and and John Bolton the rest of all it. And they let him know that we know where your other sites are. And so he got caught a little flat footed on that. So president was going to sign the deal here. Here's the good part about this. Nice eighth leave on. Yeah. And that is that they didn't blow up the talks. They're still talking. You know, Kim's gotta go back to North Korea. And you know, probably reconnoiter and the president is going to keep the pressure on with the sanctions. And there will be a third summit. I think at the third summit whether it happens a six months from now or a year from now who knows that might be the summit where we see the official end to the Korean war the repatriation of remains, and perhaps sanctions lifted just that the Korea's trade with one another. And again, the president said yesterday that he thinks it would that Kim. The reason why he's there because he's willing to denuclearize. But he wants the sanctions lifted. I we're not gonna do that. Because that's what his brought him to the table to begin with. This is the art of the deal. And sometimes the art of the deal is not real. And then you want that person. Then that person he can taste it Kim Jong UN is this close. So they wait a minute. I can have an economic powerhouse. I can have all this development of my country. I could still remain in charge. And my people will love me because it will not be more scraping moss off rocks for their dinners. Okay. He's this close to tasting that. And you know, he's the president has given them a little whetted his appetite just a bad. So we'll see how that turns out in the long run. You can join us here for ten WCBS eighty one eight hundred WCBS six eighty your reaction to the the North Korean summit where again a lot of people thought there was going to be a deal because the president was going to want to distract from the rat on the hill yesterday. And as the Republicans have called out Michael Cohen for the liar. And a convicted felon, and the very sketchy shady character that he is for his interactions with Democrats prior to the hearing yesterday, we'll get into that in just a second Lanny Davis coordinated this whole thing he's a Clinton operative a Clinton Easter he worked with Elijah Cummings with Pelosi galore and making sure that Michael Cohen would get before congress. And they also be sure it was going to happen on a day that would be most injurious to the president on he's on foreign soil. And he's not able to really I mean, it's always able to defend himself. But this is just typical of what Democrats do, you know, we as Americans whether you're democrat or Republican whenever the presence on foreign soil negotiating a peace deal. Trying to get somebody to give up nuclear weapons that could eventually kill people in the world, and even Americans that should be something we all should be rooting for. Instead, the media and Democrats and.

"As his incentive, and there's a little bit of issue there. I think because you have this summit here in Vietnam. It's another communist country. It's one of the fastest growing economies in the world. This is a booming capital city, high end hotels and luxury shops and the residents essentially saying Aaron this could all be yours. If you give up your nuclear weapons a lot has to happen after that though economic reforms in North Korea that perhaps Kim Jong Hoon is not willing to do. Because it would mean he would have to give up that very tight control. He has over his country private property, private business foreign investment things like that. So while the president's using this as that drive to get him to work toward denuclearization experts told us it's unclear if Kim Jong UN would even accept that ABC's.

"And crisis from really southeast Asia to the Middle East to the northeast Asian area covered the wars in Vietnam to Iraq known for his reporting on North Korea, including the nuclear the human rights the payoffs from south North Korea. Went to engine, Indonesia. I think it was back in the mid nineteen sixty s Don Kirk good morning to you. You know, it was a year ago that we were chatting, you know, what was going on a year ago over there in Korea. Well, I can't believe it was it's been a year. But it's been quite a year this year summitry between north and South Korea between President Trump Korea's leader, Kim Jong UN and now we're looking forward to the second summit between President Trump and Kim Jong next week in Hanoi. Right. And you were calling us a year ago from the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympic Games, which would lead to the meeting of the north and South Korean leaders and eventually to Donald Trump's that. Maybe there was a positive unfolding there. As a result of those Olympic Games. Right. It seems the gun with the Olympics. Kim Jong UN was not at the Olympics. But he said is family members there and vice president Pence was there as well. So the warming over began with the Olympics, and it's been sorta continuing ever since I doubt about whether it's really warming over and how much it really means. Well, as you well know, President Trump emerge from that historic summit meeting last June with North Korean dictator, Kim Jong UN and tweeted, this message there is no longer a nuclear threat sleep well, tonight, quote, unquote. Well, it's been nearly seven months now the nuclear threat remains if I'm not mistaken. Don, you're you're you're absolutely right. A lot of questions as to how much they that. First time it really meant North Korea committed to something called denuclearization. But it's not believe they'd really done much if anything about it. And so we're hoping for more specific results from next week's summit, but there are no guarantees. And as a matter of fact, the follow up on that thought. You look at Kim's. What was it? The annual New Year's day address. He hasn't. Correct me if I'm wrong again budge on this crucial pre-summit demand. No disarmament until American lead. Sanctions are removed. Right. I they're gonna be pressing at the the summit coming up next week for the removal of sanctions US and UN sanctions. It's not at all clear how much they're going to get a President Trump after the June summit of last year in Singapore. A lot of nice things. But also said that the sanctions would remain in place. So let's see what happens during this summit the positive. That may vary all of Kamata that summit seven months ago. North Korea hasn't tested, I don't think any way any anymore nuclear bombs or launched any more missiles, although Kim what asserted just a couple of months ago before the summit that his arsenal is complete and then he doesn't need to test anymore. What do you make of that? I'm not sure I'm not sure how much not catching more nukes really meet nobody else in this century in the twenty first century has tested a nuclear warhead. The US has a huge stockpile of Russia and other countries. China UK France also have nuclear warheads sort of India and Pakistan and Israel. But none of them has tested a nuclear warhead in this century, the only country that has been a nuclear warhead of the twentieth. Century the fact that they haven't tested one since two thousand seventeen is good. Not necessarily definitive and not necessarily all that conclusive. It would seem observers had suggested Don Kirk in Seoul, covering this particular story full-time that his latest strategy, perhaps wh- what should we describe it flattery will get you everywhere has involved sending flower flowery missives and letters to Trump, and and then in the prisoner waves around the quote, unquote, beautiful letters and even told some rally goers that he and Kim fell in love. Did you see you see that quote from him? Sallow selling love. That's an incredible comments from President Kim, even seventy was just engaging hyperbole exaggerating for affect nonetheless. He does like to maintain that there's a certain camaraderie and certain trusted between him and Kim Jong UN, and maybe that's counselor or something, and maybe it doesn't. So we'll have to wait and see a lot of people are wondering. Well, we'll anything come out of this summer. And it's very hard to predict frankly, the most realistic comments that I hear. Results are unpredictable. Well, you'll be there you flying from Seoul where you're based to Hanoi. And when you get there is an assignment for you. Dan. I want you to go over to this barber whose tucked away in. No allie. He's giving free hair in Haro. He's giving free haircuts and the style.

I wish I had enough hair left. So I could get one of the journey. Have enough air. So therefore, you won't see me getting one of those hair. But I should take a look at the barbershop anyway.

We're live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, President Trump is set to meet North Korea's Kim Jong UN in less than three weeks. So what's the biggest question hanging? Over the second summit. Why are they even having it? Joining us to tell us. Why is Larry Lieber Bloomberg news national security editor so Larry why a second summit? Well, I think to keep the momentum going and also because President Trump believes that diplomacy counts on him that he's a master negotiator. And he has to be there himself. That's not what traditionally would be advised. You usually have the sherpas of the experts to go she eighters and the foreign ministers negotiate when everything's ready for the ceremony, then the leaders way in that's not the Trump way to work. And it'll be another test of whether that makes a difference when they meet in Hanoi on the twenty seventh twenty eighth has any progress been made since the first summit as far as North Korea giving up nuclear weapons. Well, they continue which was the case before had not to test missiles or conduct nuclear underground tests or above ground. It's had been threatened at one point. So you have that continuation of them holding back. Some of the US is continuing to hold back not doing joint exercises with South Korea. But there hasn't been a fundamental step forward, the most important thing maybe that they are starting to talk to secretary Pompeii. Oh, but also to Stephen big in the former Ford Motor Company executive whose the official US on voi-. Now, they spurned in. They couldn't be bothered to talk within the essentially stood him up. But now they are engaging. And he predicts that there will be what he called concrete deliverables subsidiaries coming out of this summit. So that the both sides are sort of on the line for that. Now, what might those be those concrete deliverables? Do you have any idea? No, well, the one. The thing that the US head said was a first step. But soon was the first step was for North Korea to declare its weapons, it's inventory. So it would all be on the table. But also, the US intelligence agencies could see how honest they were big North Korea's position is if we do that then it's just a target list. The USO that's off the table. Whether they will make some more steps some more promises to hold back on the the uranium processing different locations or provide other assurances to the US. That's the question. They're side for the US side. The question is will they move toward some farmland some peace talks for the Korean war of one thousand nine hundred fifties. So we may see some back and forth. Those things that would keep the process going President Trump as you mentioned suspended major military drills with South Korea as part of the first summit is that ongoing. Or is that something he? Might renew again at the second summit. Well, I think it's something that he would continue his view. Those are those are sort of provocative warlike moves, which is the north greed position. That's a position that was quite upsetting to former Defense Secretary James Mattis, he's not there anymore. There is an argument in the Pentagon that you do need the practice together to to keep up your rowdiness. But I think there's every indication that the president's position for the time being we'll keep continue to be. Let's hold off of these exercises. And see if that produces the right atmosphere in these talks when Trump approached the first summit, he was very sort of laissez faire about it. He said I've been prepared for this. My whole life was one of the quotes is he approaching the second summit in the same way. Well, at least he is visibly publicly. You know, he tweeted on Friday, a one of these boosterish tweets, it's Kim Jong UN will become a great economic powerhouse his country will. And I have gotten to know him in fully understand how capable he is. So we still have this Trump idea that it's a personal relationship. They send each other these warm letters. But as I said, I think he is where aware he's briefed that there are real behind the scenes negotiations going on. So even if the bravado is it's a whole knee. It's all Donald Trump and Kim Jong sitting down behind the scenes, he's well aware that there are specific being associated. That's at least a step forward. When you look at the pictures of this is it more of a boost for Kim than it is for President Trump because he gets this boost in his global stature. Well, the President Trump gets to did sue boast at least for now that he's he's headed off what he says was about to be a war. But yes for Kim Jong UN he had he remains a pariah to the world on human rights on his new. Clear threat. And yet here we have a president praising him as a as a wonderful guy who will be a great economic powerhouse and the legitimacy that gives Kim around the world, but also internally to boast to his own people that the US president is paying tribute to me and my importance on the world stage. He's a winner on that already. So the real question is whether North Korea is actually prepared to give up its nuclear weapons and Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence told a Senate panel last month that Kim was unlikely to do that because he viewed nuclear arms as critical to regime survival is that not what the rest of the administration believes. Well, they believe there's some hope that they believe they have to try. But really, you know, President Trump went after briefly the intelligence agencies for saying, I think incorrectly that they disagreed with them on Iran is a threat that was. The North Korean comment was probably the most significant our intelligence agencies believe that that regime can't survive without its nuclear weapons, and they'd have to totally change their dealings with the world that also internally that's a pretty negative assessment. And it's one that's very much with that very much at odds with what the president is trying to do. All right. Thanks so much. Larry as always, that's Larry Lieber -ties. Bloomberg news national security editor coming up on Bloomberg politics, policy, power and law. Investors will be hoping that the US and China can put trade talks back on the road to a deal. After President Trump said, he's unlikely to meet president gee before a March first deadline that would avert.

"Will be traveling up this way over the next twelve hours. The Dow Jones industrials are up one hundred fifty two I'm dick Haefner. WJR news morning was at eleven or whenever news breaks. The Frank Beckmann show. News talk seven sixty WJR. We'll get to all of your thoughts on the president's state of the union message and other news after the top of the hour. Dick Haefner state of the union messages are just that they're intended for the president to report on the state of the union, and that means the entire union. I would be absolutely shocked. That's just my own feeling. I'd be shocked if he spends all of his time talking about border security, right? There are so many other things to talk, of course, including, you know, reporting on the economy, and the the strides that have been made their on trade a hint on whether we're headed for an end of the tariffs with China. Will they give us a hand down further meetings with with the Kim Jong UN, you know, those sorts of things in those things will not be the center of media reporting at this time tomorrow, I guarantee it because those are more benign things and the media's watching out for conflict and the. Conflict clearly is at the wall. Well, that's true. That's true. But also Stacey Abrams giving the the response for the Democrats. Now, she is an African American woman, and they're they're saying first African American woman to serve in this capacity. That's all well and good. But the the point is she doesn't really hold an office of influence and so. What what can we expect from her? I I'm I'm not sure what to expect there. I would think that whatever she does will be far less a report by the opposition to the American people. Then a message to the people of where those opponents are headed. In other words, how they're going to try to defeat Trump on the issues, and maybe even defeat Trump in the upcoming election. It'll be more for the the public domain and the public. Attitudes. Then President Trump's job which is partly to speak to the public and give a pep rally. But also partly to report to the nation as the president sees the state of the union. Yeah. And you know, he's got another address next year at this time to that that will be his state of the union address before the next election. So I don't see him pointing his remarks at the election of twenty twenty right now. No. But the other part about this is Stacey Abrams giving the response. She is not as I mentioned the holder of any sort of powerful position in Washington. In fact, non-elected do anything no elected power. And so she can speak about ideas and really cover a lot of ideas that are represented by the democrat party. She's got an opportunity to open the door. Russian wide, and to to get rid of some of the vitriol that we have heard out of Washington. Well, you would think that the the the national committee, which will write her speech for her would would certainly recognize that opportunity. Let's see what they do with it it. I just think at this time. This just a personal feeling is an American. I would like to see a kumbaya moment. Tonight of can we all just get along? You know, I I really would. And can we discuss our differences and come to some agreement about it? And. Yeah. That's not getting to the wall and all of that. But it's going to be it's going to be an interesting, you would have to guess that that's being written or that has been written for President Trump. Let's see how far he sticks with the written speech, and whether he veers off and if he veers off that's a possible path of danger for him. Oh, yeah. I think if you use this moment to politicize things and start criticizing your political opponents make fun of Nancy Pelosi or anybody else, then you know, you're you're losing. That's that's why does each goes down. And I think the same thing is true for Stacey Abrams. You know, if she gets personal with the president and starts getting into other issues besides the state of our nation the same danger holds for her. So this is this is her moment in the sun. All right. You know, big big time. Speeches one time speeches have made or broken the political careers of so many in politics. Indeed. That's that's really it out. A new you say things you mean. And you better mean what you say is the bottom line on all of that. So we shall see. I love Marco Rubio's tree tweet though, four Stacey Abrams. Did you hear about that? No, no. He says. Yes at Stacey Abrams. Hydration is a very good idea. Trust me on this. Oh, there we go. Everybody remembered Marco Rubio, grabbing the water model when he was giving the rich. The things to get the attention. Exactly. Exactly. Right. And then who had the chapstick bone. I can't remember to. I don't remember his Kennedy. What's his name? I can't remember Joe Kennedy. And so that's right. Yeah. He gave advice to Stacey Abrams to a little advice for at Stacey. Abrams. Says she prepares for democratic rebuttal be yourself. You'll crush it. He'll talk longer than you expect. So keep snacks handy. Be the fighter. We know. You are. Misplaced your chapstick. You have millions of Americans standing with you. Good luck. Everybody's having fun with it a little bit. Yeah. The good sense of humor. So he really kicked it on. That's funny. We'll see who's advice. She takes tonight if any, but I'll be shocked if she has abolished the above hopefully. Yeah. We shall see. It'll be a big this is her biggest moment, let's face it. If she is indeed a rising star in the democrat party tonight is a huge moment for her. And she realizes that to everyone says she is a real sharp lady. So I think she gets it. It'll be do the Democrats need yet. One more candidate. Especially one who just lost an election. Yeah. There you go. They already have beta Aurora. And who knows who else before it's all said and done. All right, dick Haefner and the WJR news department. Our news director with the with all that's fit the printed a whole lot more here on the Frank Beckmann show. We're going to get the Republican side of this from Keighley mcenaney of the Republican National Committee..

"Shutdown, Facebook and stop all the cellphones. Then there would be revolution. Boy, no kidding. So the White House is they're saying they're just how they're managing the shutdown and and the complaints about refunds and the White House is ruling that the IRS can issue tax refunds. So like you said because they're seeing that you're right pitchforks for sure when you work and set a certain amount of side and people are counting on that for various reasons to feed their family to take it on a trip somewhere. You know, some people use it like a piggy Bank is they manipulate the money correctly. And what their tax situation is. So yeah, absolutely awful awful awful. I what about this. Visit the summit what's going on with the summit, and and now Kim Jong Hoon visited visited China. Right ahead of. Trump. So this is a big deal. Right. You know, and people have had doubts about this whole North Korean United States situation from the beginning. And then he there was a little bump the media was quick to say, oh, you know, it's not working. I think it's still progressing as it should Kim Jong UN has taken steps the whole north and south meaning the visits to China China controls certain portion of North Korea. Anyway, as we know he likes to make them, you know, try to happy Kim Jong UN, I think it's just continuing. I still amazed. Because you know, I was there when we offer two billion light supported President Clinton on doing that it didn't work. Everything was tried failed. Obama tried failed. And I've got to give it to Donald Trump. He's kept with this. So he puts pressure when you need to on it. I still think it progresses fairly well. And last.

"Who's used. It's a tiny last week Kim Jong UN released his new year message. What did we hear? And what did we say? Well, even visually. It was quite a contrast with previous speeches. So instead of seeing him standing up a podium we had him in this big raw the stately room. Overseeing of course, by pictures of his grandfather and father and his wearing this western suit. He's sitting in this leather armchair. And the impression you have is really much more of a leader who is part of the international realm. Somebody who's been out there has met a US president is in this world, and is really addressing a message as much to that outside international community as he is to his own country people, and what did he say? On that. He be that the woman. Under you got Kim. Jon in just said, look, I'm always ready to sit down with the US president again will. That's not surprising. We knew that. But he says if the US miscalculates our patients, if it forces us down this path of it puts pressure upon us, then we've really got no option, but to explore a new way, it's really a microcosm of everything that's happened over the last year so last year with tensions too high. He made this very chilling statement about a nuclear button on my desk. There's from somewhere. But at the same time, of course, he was indicating that he was interested in a reproche Mon he made this over chore on the Winter Olympics in Seoul. And of course, that's what's helped to pave the way towards North Korea's participation and not let of course to the Singapore meeting with Donald Trump himself seven thirty five in the morning, if you're just waking up we're continuing our breaking coverage ahead of the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Hoon in Singapore. Security measures are at an all time, high President Trump and Kim Jong Hoon or right here in the same city there hotels, or now, let's the half mile apart on the agenda for North Korea's nuclear arsenal. And the Trump White House has been both raising hopes and lowering expectations about what will be accomplished here in the coming hours. They met one to one and one of the most alarming things perhaps is that Trump told people off towards so don't worry about the notes because I've got a great memory. So it will be fine. When I think, that's pretty terrifying. Prosper? Victim it sold. Have great memories of. I don't have to tell meaningful discussions. Where will we know? They came out with the statement at the end of it. But it was pretty weak stuff. Men. Trump was sort of up and praising Kim showman for running his country tough, which is quite the euphemism. For some of the atrocities that the UN reports have described his retailer anybody that takes over a situation. Like he did at twenty six years of age, and is able to run it and run a tough. Really it seemed as if Trump was under the impression that North Korea had kind of committed to denuclearization will it's when it talks about sit of denuclearization. What North Koreans is something that is crucial. It's staged and above all is reciprocal. It's not saying, you know, let's check out on UK's tomorrow. What the US is still sort of talking about is. Well, it's got to be verifiable. It's got to be final. They're talking. About North Korea getting rid of that weapons of mass destruction. Remember that this is a country which was flattened by US booms in the Korean war in the fifties. And it's seen what's happened around the world. So what happened in Iraq? And also saw what happened in Libya, and I think the lessons it really took from that is that you get weapons of mass destruction. And you hang onto weapons of mass destruction. But we've seen is that they've come out of twenty eight teen with a summit with the US president, which in itself was this extraordinary coup for them. They gave nothing they made no concessions to win that and they were treated as if they were the equal on the world stage of the United States. I think the other key point is that South Korea put in a huge amount of work here in making this possible. And in trying to calm things me South Korea's in a very unin viewable position. Because of course, they're sort of the most vulnerable point and all of this and the moon Jae in administration really hard sought from the first to retract the north..
