What happened to the idea of Moranbong Band doing a concert tour throughout China? Here's an idea: Discuss with Hyon Song-wol the Moranbong Band selecting a combination of DPRK hit songs, Classical pieces & Western hits that have zero
2/military content - lyrically or on the Jumbotron visual/light show. DPRK hits include “Dash to the Future”, “Let’s Study” and “Campfire”. Peruse their videos on YouTube, and you and Hyon Song-wol can select the right song line-up.

Moranbong Band touring China's major cities will be become news that echos around the world! They'll pack concert halls. They could do just Classical music pieces as in the above video, or throw in their
11/own DPRK hits like “Dash to the Future”, “Let’s Study” and “Campfire” that will surely resonate with CPC members for their socialist themes.

How am I coming up with this idea as an American, right? It's just my gut sense. Moranbong Band is poised to be North Korean emissaries
12/who, hand-picked by Kim Jong-un himself, not only represent the DPRK but through the universal language of music and dance, can bring China and North Korea closer together. They will act as true ambassadors of peace! And this will be a symbolic move of DPRK taking its first,
13/bold and adventurous step out into the international world community. I'm thinking that the press they'll receive, in China and around the world, will turn them into the "musical darlings of socialism". Of course the selection of the songs themselves, which should be
14/gone over carefully with a fine-toothed comb with Hyon Song-wol, has to be airtight. Nothing over-the-top, no military allusions, no tanks rolling on the Jumbotron or missiles launching!! Mornabong Band's debut on the world stage first touring its nearest friend China's
15/cities, and from there the sky's the limit. I think they'll be in demand from countries around the globe, like BTS, Blackpink or any popular band. Can you imagine London inviting Moranbong Band to perform in it's cities? Germany? Russia?

It's just me, but these highly
16/talented women selected my Kim Jong-un himself I believe would be supremely honored to represent their country by doing concerts around the globe. And they will love the experience of traveling, of visiting other countries, of making friends and connections. The women of
17/truly deserve these things. So - it's just my idea, but hey, if you want to contact Hyon Song-wol and run this idea past her, please by any means available do so. I think this could be a turning-point in how DPRK manages its relations on the international stage.

I've stumbled across a truth that's worth repeating. It's what Malcolm X said about the "White liberal". For any American who is Black, answer this question:

"Who do you trust more? Malcolm X or Joe Biden?"

I cannot answer that question. Only you can. Answer it well. Image
2/Joe Biden said: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black”.
Malcom X would disagree.
“The white liberals, who have been posing as our friends, have failed us. The white liberal is the worst enemy to America

“White liberals are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the black man as our ‘friend’ to get our sympathy, our allegiance and our minds. The white liberal attempts to use us politically against white conservatives, Image

BOMBSHELL: NY Post Refuses To Publish All 25,000 Hunter Pics After Reports They Include ‘Underage Obsessions’
by Tom Pappert | National File
[October 16th 2020]
2/The photos are evidence of potential criminality. This is DOJ’s jurisdiction. Turn them over to the DOJ and let the law take over. (For we are a nation of laws are we not?)

I love the Moranbong Band. They're so cool. Their musicianship is par excellence! They don't have boring typical Western materialistic values. They are REAL, socialist, women with real values and relationships that compel you to re-examine things.
If Love can conquer Hate, and Peace comes to the Korean Peninsula with the world accepting a nuclear DPRK, just as it does nuclear Pakistan, India and Israel, none of whom are members of the NPT, then like leaven added to bread the world will be inundated with what Millennial
Generation North Koreans - like Moranbong Band, Wangjaesan Dance Troupe, National Circus of Pyongyang, the Jangmadang Generation, students - North Korea's Elite, essentially - bring to the table. And with the energy they have, their love for sports, their excellence in education,
