1. Kim Jong Un in China for talks with President Xi Jinping a week after summit with Trump
S.A. Miller of The Washington Times covers the meeting between North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un and Chinese president Xi Jinping. China remains a power at odds with the United States and would prefer to see the Pacific theater of operations under their own control rather than US control and alliances between North Korea and China make the situation of troop removal dangerous at best. PAI and midwestern classical conservatives understand the necessity in applying realism to the current situation – the ending of training operations and talks of troop removal from the Korean Peninsula is a high risk, low reward strategy. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jun/19/kim-jong-un-china-talks-president-xi-jinping/

2. Dealing with Kim Jong-un and China
PAI Board of Advisors member Daniel Gallington at The Washington Times provides an analysis of how to move forward with Kim Jong-Un and his relationship to China. Gallington notes the motivating politics behind the framing of arms-control agreements and reminds his readers to keep a level head when moving forward. PAI and midwestern conservatives agree that keeping the situation as simple as possible is the best way to maintain good outcomes. Classical conservatives understand the implications of a North Korea-China alliance in the Pacific theater and the gravity of each different outcome. In order to maintain peace abroad, any plans made to move forward will require deep analysis. American influence in the worlds multiple hotpots is vital to international peace, one of these hotspots will remain on the Korean peninsula for some time to come. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jun/18/dealing-with-kim-jong-un-and-china/

3. Two or three anti-Trump FBI personnel worked on Russia investigation, says IG
Kelley Cohen in The Washington Examiner reports on new developments concerning the Russian collusion investigation and the alleged anti-Trump agents who took part in it. The Department of Justice Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, made a statement that two agents and one attorney working on the case had openly made comments about their political sentiments. Classical conservatives fully understand the implications of political bias in the intelligence and justice systems. PAI and midwestern conservative followers strive to see the intelligence community and justice system acting as impartial as possible, the recent developments of the Russia investigation show quite the contrary. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/two-or-three-anti-trump-fbi-personnel-worked-on-russia-investigation-says-ig

4. U.S. Pulls Out of ‘Biased’ UN Human Rights Council
Mairead Mcardle of The National Review writes about the recent United States decision to pull out of the UN Human Rights Council. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley was quoted saying that the council is a “protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool for political violence.” Classical conservatives in the Midwest and all across America have long felt that the UN does not provide a worthwhile return on investment. PAI and its followers know that, if violent regime leaders like those in The Democratic Republic of the Congo are allowed seats on a human rights abuses council, no headway can be made to stop the issues. https://www.nationalreview.com/news/united-states-pulls-out-of-united-nations-human-rights-council/

5. Can We Thank Arms Control For Nuclear Tsunamis?
PAI Board of Advisors member, writing for Newsmax, addresses the issues surrounding Russia’s most recent nuclear developments. The report revolves around the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START), saying that Russia might be trying to move to a “quality of quantity” approach when it comes to nuclear weapons. PAI and conservatives in general know that Russia remains a threat to the United States, their ability to create natural disasters such as Tsunamis only complicates international relations further. Russia’s Poseidon project, a remote submarine armed with a nuclear warhead, causes concern to classical conservatives both in the Midwest and across the United States. https://www.newsmax.com/peterpry/arms-control-russia-poseidon-nuclear-tsunami/2018/06/21/id/867525/#ixzz5J5cTBSUy
