Dennis Rodman headed back to N. Korea to have 'fun' with Kim Jong Un
Chicago Sun Times ^ | April 15, 2013 | Craig Newman

Posted on 04/15/2013 6:39:22 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

The U.S.'s apparent unofficial ambassador to North Korea also offered some knowledge on where the country stands in history and its impact on geopolitics with the non-stop war rhetoric of late:

"The Russians were way out there, and they were acting on their threats. He (Un) just wants to be loved. He just wants to sit down and talk. That's all."

This insane freak may not return. The starving populace may fall on him and eat him.

Having freaks like Rodman (or is it Rodham?) travel to foreign enemy countries makes the US a greater laughing stock than it is.

Of course his ambassadorial skills match or exceed those who were actually appointed by Bronco Bama.

With recent news whispers from other national news boards of Kim’s gone missing and a coup, SURE, let Rodman go there!

Revoke his doggone passport, once he steps into the country. I’m sure he’ll feel right at home.

For the same reason Jay Z and Beyonce were able to vacation in Cuba.

Rodman got fired on Celebrity Apprentice before Gary Busey, because he incorrectly spelled the name of Donald Trunp’s latest wife. Need I say more.

The security dude would be the one on left in red. The guy beside the security dude looks to be checking to make certain the door is still barred. The woman (young woman on right) .. Is that lil kim’s wife? I believe it is! The woman does not look happy and is giving rodman the eyes. Is there something else in that picture? Notice kim and rodman are looking in different directions. Have to believe this picture was taken as propaganda for our media to say NO, rodman and kim are not on the same page, and neither is zer0 on the same page with either lil kim or rodman. One more thing the woman on the upper right of the picture is checking the opposite direction of the man beside the rodman security dude. Most certainly a door still barred check. Not a thousand or million words but this is what am sensing from this one picture.

I have a feeling Kim Jong is either deep underground afraid of US drone attacks or has been placed under some form of house arrest.

yeah the security dude is the only other black guy in the room. Same in Germany, if they are black they are American soldiers.

Yeah, it is a police state. Yeah little kim is lonely, all his “friends” are out to preserve themselves. No one gives a fink’s fart about him as a person. He should resign and come to America, get some job or open a business if he wants friends.

Look, if we couldn’t execute Fonda and imprison Kerry for the traitorous and horrible things they did against our country, what do we think Obambi’s pro-commie regime would ever do to this clown.

I’d love to not hear anything about this goofus.

open a business

Have to ask ... How would we know lil kim if did so was not using counterfeit money? NKs are good at counterfeiting. Is almost like the NKs have been receiving our dollars before we make the changes to our currency with the speed at which the NKs are up and running their counterfeit into our monetary supply.

.....”The Democratic party - starting at the top level - now relies heavily on such celebrity experts. Aren’t they the voice of the people?”.......

They certainly have the green light from the Obama Admin. for pretty much anything they want to do.

The “show” must go on! Anything to get their face in the news as significant in the political arena.

Hollywood and Washington are one and the same....all ‘acting’ whatever role the moment calls for in order to line their pockets....while hiding the filth of their real life behind that mask. Both are cesspools.

Is this fool brain damaged?

And is there anything he or his ilk could do that would be considered treason? Seems to me he could go over there and fire on Americans, and still be allowed back into the country.

Rahms brother is a stakeholder in the Vice News that set this up.

Excerpt:
But the beneficiaries of Kim Jong-un’s goodwill and apparently vast hospitality don’t stop there. (Members of the Vice crew described getting drunk and eating “an epic feast” with Kim at the Supreme Leader’s home.) A win for Vice is also a win for the company’s investors, which include some notable names from the 1 percent. Tom Freston, for example, is a stakeholder. Freston, the co-founder of MTV and former CEO of Viacom, helped Oprah Winfrey launch the OWN Network and is a big Democratic donor.

Another stakeholder is the Raine Group, an investment bank co-founded by Ari Emanuel, brother of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Joseph Ravitch, a former partner at Goldman Sachs and a board member of … Vice Media. Google CEO Eric Schmidt and former Facebook President Sean Parker have both invested in a Raine private-equity fund, according to press reports./

Dennis,

Next time you’re in North Korea be sure and eat the local delicacies. Tree bark and emaciated human limbs....

This could be a way for a) us to find out if Kim is still around and in charge; or b) for Kim to re-emerge in the public eye if the generals have been trying to keep him as just a puppet.

Nobody knows right now who is running NK or just what their goals are; and an internal power struggle may be under way.

(But, who knows?)

Like it, don’t like it, but the history of US/NK relations has been one of “back channel communications” (definitely no pun intended not even remotely).

Before there was Rodman there was Bill Richardson and I think Jesse Jagoff has been pressed into duty on occasions.

I suspect that Rodman is just another in a serious of weirdo’s that get to carry messages back and forth - probably a pretty decent gig.

Who’s next? Mike Tyson? Pee Wee Herman? The mind boggles.

Rodman is being put up to this by Vice Magazine. I don’t know much about them except they have a lot of documentaries on youtube and they seem to be a bunch of leftists and political know nothings with more money than sense who think foreign policy is a joke.
