Below is the complete text of the first public address ever given (via media) to the world by Kim Jong Un. He is responding to the threats 45 made against him at the UN.

The speech made by the U.S. President in his maiden address on the UN arena in the prevailing serious circumstances, in which the situation on the Korean peninsula has been rendered tense as never before and is inching closer to a touch-and-go state, is arousing worldwide concern.

Shaping the general idea of what he would say, I expected he would make stereo-typed, prepared remarks a little different from what he used to utter in his office on the spur of the moment as he had to speak on the world’s biggest official diplomatic stage.

But, far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors.

I’d like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words...

Last week, on September 12th, the Golden Valley City Council concluded a 6-month process of amending Golden Valley policing policy to protect undocumented people from unfair persecution and the legally tenuous practices of the ICE pipeline.

On September 5th I delivered comments to the Golden Valley City Council regarding the rise of white supremacy in America and their current policy agenda. This was given in the context of a larger discussion about adopting policy (outlined by the ACLU) to ensure safe, fair policing of undocumented people, an ongoing discussion spearheaded by Golden Valley People Power and supported by myself. My comments were intended to supply more information, and perhaps a bigger picture, because I believe we are all participating in history at this moment. They have a serious decision ahead of them, and I am grateful that they have invited the public into the decision-making process.

UPDATE: Golden Valley police adopted new policy as a result of these talks, and the City of Golden Valley also wrote a Welcome Statement.

President's Trump's initiatives, from his first Executive Order, to the little-known-about act that doubled immigration paperwork in August, is a direct advancement of White Supremacist...
