North Korea Has Reopened a Hotline With South Korea. What Does It Mean?

North Korea startled the world today by restoring a telephone hotline with South Korea, an overture that lets the two countries speak directly for the first time in years.

On today’s show, Pat and Jeffy talked about President Donald Trump’s strong stance on North Korea, and a caller praised Trump’s foreign policy.

“Things seem to be maybe even improving,” Pat said. “All of a sudden, North Korea is making these gestures to South Korea.”

PAT: North Korea just reopened their border hotline with South Korea.

Does that mean something is working? Kind of seems like it.

JEFFY: It sure does.

PAT: Yeah, it's been tense over the last six or eight months. And everybody was wondering, was this the right thing to do? You just really ratcheted up the heat, but now it seems to have cooled off. Things seem to be maybe even improving somewhat.

All of a sudden, North Korea is making these gestures to South Korea. They're reopening the border with South Korea. They just did that today. They already tested it. It apparently works. It's open again. They've also extended an olive branch to the Olympic games that are going to be held in South Korea next month.

JEFFY: The winter Olympics happens next month, man.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah. So there was talk by Nikki Haley that we might not even go because the tensions were so high.

JEFFY: Yeah, because it would so dangerous.

PAT: That's down. That's over. We're definitely going. And North Korea has basically promised not to do anything.

JEFFY: You got to do it definitely had something to do with Trump's big stick, look, we're bigger, have a nice day.

PAT: Right. You know, and I said it's reminiscent of the my dog is bigger than your dog Ken-L Ration campaign.

(music)

My button is bigger than your button. My button is bigger than yours.

JEFFY: That's classic.

PAT: Did it work? I kind of think it did. It kind of feels like it did.

JEFFY: It sure looks like it.

PAT: 888-727-BECK.

Let's go to Elizabeth. No, it's 888. Hey, Elizabeth, welcome.

CALLER: Hi, Pat and Jeffy, happy to talk to you.

PAT: You too.

CALLER: I just wanted to call because -- well, first of all, I really have to commend you and Jeffy on your attitude about Trump. I was a Never Trumper primary and also in the general election.

JEFFY: It was a tough time, man.

PAT: It was a tough time.

CALLER: It was. I mean, I started out just because the media and the people in Washington, I just started out feeling I had to defend him.

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Thank you.

CALLER: But there's one thing I have to disagree with you on.

PAT: Okay.

CALLER: I love the tweets. I absolutely love the tweets. I'm like a kid at Christmas waiting for Santa, what's he going to bring me this time?

PAT: Are you?

JEFFY: You're definitely not alone.

PAT: Well, Christmas comes every day for you then. Because those tweets are non-stop.

CALLER: It sure does.

JEFFY: I was concerned this morning. I was working -- filling in for Doc Thompson on the morning show, on TheBlaze Radio Network, and President Trump didn't tweet all morning.

CALLER: Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: I thought he lost his phone. I thought we had to send help into the White House.

PAT: Fortunately --

JEFFY: He found it.

CALLER: I know it's like he's always pulling people's chains. He's got a quirky sense of mischief that comes through there. But, no, and don't get me wrong, I pray every single day for Donald Trump, for God to give him wisdom because sometimes the tweets go a little far.

But can you imagine if Solomon tweeted, you know, okay. You broads, stop squabbling, I've got a big sword. I mean, I don't know if he would do that.

PAT: I don't know either. There was a lot of wisdom there with that guy.

JEFFY: That's all.

CALLER: I'm so proud now to call him my president. I never thought I would be. And, of course, there's also -- we don't have to see Barack and Michelle in the White House all the time.

PAT: Thank heaven.

JEFFY: Amen.

CALLER: He gets a lot of points for that.

PAT: Yes, he does. Thanks a lot, Elizabeth, appreciate it.

JEFFY: That's for sure.

PAT: I mean, people do love it.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
