Nix the nuclear warheads, cue the doves.
The North Korean government is erasing much of its anti-U.S. propaganda following dictator Kim Jong-un’s forays onto the world stage.
Gone are the posters depicting the U.S. as a “rotten, diseased, pirate nation” and promising “merciless revenge” on American forces for an imagined attack on the totalitarian country.
In their place are cheery messages touting praising the prospects for Korean reunification and the declaration Kim signed in April with South Korean President Moon Jae-in promising “lasting peace,” according to reports.

President Trump’s rally in Minnesota on Wednesday evening was instructive. Three things: Trump loves the American people; the people of the heartland love him; and he is the most plain-speaking, audacious, and comic president we have ever enjoyed. But the people of the left loathe him as they have never loathed any president before. The left hated Reagan and the Bushes, but because our popular culture has become so deviant, so obnoxious, leftists feel free to expose their inner demons of malignant animus toward everyone they consider unworthy.
