Rest, Recover, Reflect
You were the former chairman, you were the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. With the Trump-Kim summit now less than one month away, excitement and hopes are building. Even the dismantling of the nuclear site is a precursor. There is talk, Chris, that decision by the president emboldened the Iranians to attack the Israelis. Nutrisystem Before And After Youtube.

What does that mean as far as direct U. That regime change will be off the table? This will be Americans coming in — private-sector Americans, not the U. They need enormous amounts of electricity in North Korea, to work with them to develop infrastructure.
All the things that the North Korean people need, the capacity for American agriculture to support North Korea so they can eat meat and have healthy lives. Those are the kinds of things that if we get what it is the president has demanded, the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of North Korea that the American people will offer in spades.
And as part of that are we in effect saying to Kim, if you give us what we want, you can stay on and power? We will have to provide security assurances to be sure. This has been the trade-off that has been pending for 25 years. No president has ever put America in a position where the North Korean leadership thought that this was truly possible that the Americans would actually do this, would lead to the place where America was no longer held at risk by the North Korean regime.
Now, the task is for President Trump and he to meet to validate the process by which this would go forward, to set up those markers so that we can negotiate this outcome. But make no mistake about it: Two weeks ago, national security advisor John Bolton sat in this very seat and he told me that the U. In other words, action for action. Have you and Kim agreed with the sequencing is?
In the coming weeks, we will continue to work on that so we can be in a good spot on June 12th in Singapore for President Trump. You give me X, I give you Y, and it has failed repeatedly. I think Chairman Kim understands that. I think he appreciates the fact that this is going to have to be different and big and special, and something that has never been undertaken before.
If we are going to get to this historic outcome, both sides have to be prepared to take a truly measures to achieve it. And how confident are you? Our eyes are wide open with respect to the risks, but it is — it is our fervent hope that Chairman Kim wants to make a strategic change, a strategic change in the direction for his country and his people. I want to talk about that. You said that we understand and John Bolton talked about that nobody in the administration is starry eyed.
I think this will be a very big success. We are going to enter into a set of discussions with two nations doing their best to achieve outcomes for their own people that are consistent with their objectives and goals.
I think we now understand that there is the potential that there are shared objectives and our mission is to prepare the groundwork. So, the president can have a successful outcome that the two of them can meet and see if there is sufficient overlap so that we can achieve the ultimate objective for the American people. After you brought the American hostages home and the whole world celebrated that, President Trump praised Kim for releasing them in that praise, not the release of the hostages, but that praise upset some critics.
Take a look at this. Is human rights an issue in this summit, or is this just going to be about the nuclear issue? Yes, Chris, the administration is always concerned about human rights. We had a success this week. We are happy for those families and for America that those three Americans returned home.
But we recognize there is much more work to do. We still have Americans held and we are working diligently on behalf of each and every one of them. When I — people found out that you were going to be on the program today, they all of question I must say I did, what is Kim like?
With the possible exception of Dennis Rodman, you had spent more time with him than any other Westerner, at least two and a half hours, the way I figure it. What is he like? Give us any kind of personal insight. How aware is he of what President Trump has been saying? Was there any mention of little rocket man? The conversations are professional. He knows — he knows his brief, he knows what he is trying to achieve for the North Korean people. He is able to deal with complexity when the conversation requires it.
He does follow the Western press. He will probably watch the show at some point. He too is preparing for June 12th. Iran and Israel got into an armed conflict across the Syrian border this week after President Trump pulled out of a nuclear deal with Tehran.
To suggest that Iran feels less constrained when during the JCPOA, they have now fired missiles into an airport where Americans travel each day in Riyadh. They have now fired missiles into Israel. Indeed, I would argue that they thought they could act with impunity. President Trump made it clear that he is not only going after Iran, but he is also prepared to sanction European companies that continue to do business in Tehran.
Here is the president. We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction. Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.
The question is, how hard is the Trump administration prepared to go after European companies that ignore the U. Two things come across. The sanctions regime that is now in place is very clear about what the requirements are. Israel — the U. Is the peace process dead? And given the threat of violence, what are you as the secretary of state saying to Americans in the Middle East, in those parts of the world over the next few days? So, the peace process is most decidedly not dead.
We hope we can achieve a successful outcome there as well. You have been secretary of state for barely two weeks now. With the Trump-Kim summit now less than one month away, excitement and hopes are building. But there are both risks and rewards to this high-stakes diplomacy. You just heard Secretary Pompeo and President Trump is also talking with growing optimism about his summit with Chairman Kim. What do you think are the prospects for a Trump-Kim summit?
What is — what are the prospects that this will work out, that Kim will give up, as you just heard the secretary say, give up his nuclear program and agree to give us means to verify it? I think — I want to give President Trump credit for getting to this point.
I want to talk to about that because you gave a speech in Washington this week and you talked about what could happen if the summit falls apart, if they walk away from Singapore without a deal. Let me put it up on the screen.
Are you saying that if there is no deal, that we could be worse off than if there had been no summit in the first place? That said, it could happen. But I do worry about the downside of breaking — of conflict breaking out where tens and hundreds of thousands of people particularly in South Korea could die very quickly and Kim has a huge arsenal to include nuclear, chemical, biological weapons.
And the outbreak there could be huge. So if this agreement were to fall apart, what would you have President Trump do? Those are the stakes that we are playing for right now. Barnabas took John Mark with him and sailed for Cyprus. Lord, I know there are many scriptures that speak to love, peace, long-suffering, and gentleness as it relates to dealing with others. Here are five things I see in these verses. Teach me how to disagree. So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives.
The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires.
These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. From everything Your Word tells me, the answer is no. But that sinful, evil nature will become smaller and smaller as I submit my human nature to You.
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. Holy Spirit, You represent everything good about me. Holy Spirit, today I choose to feed the God woman in me. I choose to rely on Your guidance, listen to Your voice and make a conscious effort to silence the voices of my sinful nature. The stories of the patriarchs and prophets build my faith. Why, then, was the law given?
It was given alongside the promise to show people their sins. But the law was designed to last only until the coming of the child who was promised. God gave his law through angels to Moses, who was the mediator between God and the people. If the law could give us new life, we could be made right with God by obeying it.
One way to think about the Old Testament laws is to think about three categories: While we are no longer bound by ceremonial laws, the principles behind them—to worship and love a holy God—still apply. Because modern society and culture are so radically different, some of these guidelines cannot be followed specifically. But the principles behind the commands should guide our conduct. Moral law-A direct command of God—for example the Ten Commandments. We are to obey this moral law, not to obtain salvation, but to live in ways pleasing to God.
Give me Your wisdom and Yours alone to apply Your Word to my daily life. Jesus, thank You for releasing me from the prison of sin. Thank You for Your grace. Thank You for Your law. Teach me how to know You more through both. In Your mighty and awesome name. Heavenly Father, reading through the book of Acts had made something apparently clear—I am empty. And the believers were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
