Former NBA Star Dennis Rodman Says North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un is His “Friend for Life” and Calls Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton “A**holes”
Basketball Diplomacy: From the files of even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every so often …
Never at a loss for words, former NBA star Dennis Rodman told reporters upon his return from North Korea, that North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un is His “friend for life” and that both Barack Obama and former Secretary of state Hillary Clinton were “A$$holes”. Rodman also was correct when he rejected calls for him to lobby the North Korean dictator to release imprisoned American citizen Kenneth Bae. Rodman responded to reporters, “Guess what? That’s not my job to ask about Kenneth Bae. Ask Obama about that. … Ask Hillary Clinton. … Ask those a**holes.” He is actually right, it s their job and maybe the media needs to confront Obama and Clinton why they have done nothing. So are “We the People” supposed to be doing the job of the President and Sec. of State? Just a friendly reminder, they work for us, the the other way around.
Following his visit to North Korea, retired NBA star Dennis Rodman returned praising North Korean dictator Kim Jon Un and referring to President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as “a**holes.”
“He’s my friend for life. I don’t care what you guys think about him. I don’t give a [expletive] what people around the world think about him. But he’s my friend. And you saw it on the pictures. He’s my friend,” Rodman said, according to CBS News.
Maybe the MSM needs to remember these failures on the part of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she runs for president in 2016, instead of continuing to proclaim she was the best Secretary of State EVER!
Former NBA Star Dennis Rodman Tells Sports Illustrated that He Should be Considered for Nobel Peace Prize, If Obama Can Win For Doing Nothing, Why Not The Worm?
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman thinks he should be considered for the Nobel Peace prize … “Basketball Diplomacy”.
The always outrageous and ever-controversial Dennis Rodman thinks that he should be considered the for the Nobel Peace Prize for hos efforts in International “basketball” diplomacy with North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un. So before we trash the media seeking Rodman too much for his latest attempt to remain relevant and in the TV eye, let’s consider some of the past winners of the Nobel Peace Prize that have included Yasser Arafat, Al Gore and President Obama. When Barack Obama can win the Nobel Peace Prize for accomplishing absolutely nothing, the award has pretty much been diminished to a watered down joke. Add the likes of Al “global warming” Gore and a terrorist Yasser Arafat to the mix and I say why not Dennis Rodman.
With the past record of Nobel Peace Prize winners, isn’t this exactly what committee is looking for? As stated at The Daily Caller, “And then you get to keep it, even after you’ve turned it into a sick joke! So, why shouldn’t Rodman win one for buddying up with a blood-soaked dictator?”
From Sports Illustrated:
This year’s cover story is arguably the maddest of the Mad Libs: Dennis Rodman goes to North Korea in hopes of normalizing relations between the country and the United States and capturing a Nobel Peace Prize.
The eccentric, uninhibited basketball Hall of Famer drew untold headlines this year when he accompanied HBO’s Vice and members of the Harlem Globetrotters on a trip to North Korea, one of the least-accessible countries to Americans and a place with one of the world’s worst records on human rights. Franz Lidz caught up with Rodman for the story behind the story, revealing the former Bulls star’s surreal experiences with North Korea’s new leadership, his plans for international diplomacy and peace, and, yes, his belief that he should be considered for a Nobel, an honor bestowed on the likes of Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela, Elie Wiesel, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr.
North Korea Escalating Threats Against the United States … Kim Jong Un says Ready “To Settle Accounts With the U.S.”
And you thought North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il was a lunatic, enter his son Kim Jong Un …
The conflict between the United States and North Korea escalated when as reported at Reuters, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signed off on the order at a midnight meeting of top generals and “judged the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation”. Um, “ready to settle accounts with America”? Meanwhile we have an absentee president in Obama more concerned with dividing Americans against each other than protecting them.
I’M A LITTLE DESPOT, SHORT AND STOUT …
North Korea put its missile units on standby on Friday to attack U.S. military bases in South Korea and the Pacific, after the United States flew two nuclear-capable stealth bombers over the Korean peninsula in a rare show of force.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signed off on the order at a midnight meeting of top generals and “judged the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation”, the official KCNA news agency said.
KCNA said North Korea and the United States could only settle their differences by “physical means”. The North has an arsenal of Soviet-era short-range Scud missiles that can hit South Korea but its longer-range Nodong and Musudan missiles, which could in theory hit U.S. Pacific bases, are untested.
This was supposed to be in reaction to the US’s display of military might. Some U.S. officials argued that the bomber flights would be unduly provocative and akin to recent North Korean actions, which these officials said have irresponsibly ratcheted up tensions. Looks like they were correct.
Former NBA Player Dennis Rodman Says,Obama and Kim Jong Un Could Bond If They Shoot Hoops … Also, ‘Won’t Apologize’ For ‘My Friend’ Kim Jong Un’s Murderous Regime: ‘We Do The Same Thing Here’
FLICKA KIM JUNG UN …
File this one under why you don’t let idiots go to an oppressive Communist country and become “useful idiots” for propaganda. Some called it ”BASKETBALL DIPLOMACY”, personally I call it IDOCY and more Dennis Rodman attention seeking behavior. What a joke. Is this what we have come to in the United States in allowing a fool like Dennis ‘The Worm” Rodman to act as an ad hoc diplomat? Then again, John Kerry is now in charge of the State Department, I guess anything is possible.
Why would anyone take this clown seriously?
Former NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman and attention seeking whore who thrives on the outrageous recently visited North Korea and spent time palling around with communist dictator Kim Jong Un. However, after returning to the US, Rodman told reporters that Barack Obama and Kim Jong Un could bond if they shot hoops. Wow, who knew that North Korea would stop threating to nuke America and killing their own people if Kim Jong Un and Obama played a game of HORSE or played some one on one? WTF!!! Rodman stated in his interview on ABC’s ‘This Week’, that Kim Jong Un wanted Obama to call him. I almost have to ask why the media even interviewed Rodman and gave anything he does credibility. Rodman is a fool, an attention seeking fool. Nothing more. Either Rodman is ignorant to the fact of what actually goes on in North Korea, or he does not care. North Koreans are being unjustly imprisoned and they are being starved to death and we have a bridal dress wearing Dennis Rodman allowed to go there and act like this brutal leader is like everyone else. Unreal. Just curious, why did State Department allow this A$$ clown to go there?
DENNIS RODMAN, otherwise known as a “USEFUL IDIOT”.
During the interview with George Stephanopoulos on ‘This Week,’ Rodman kept referring to Kim Jong Un as his friend and a good guy. When pressed about the prison camps, the lack of human rights and the murderous North Korean regimes, Rodman made excuses and said that “we do the same thing here”. REALLY? As reported at Mediaite, Dennis Rodman ‘Won’t Apologize’ For ‘My Friend’ Kim Jong Un’s Murderous Regime: ‘We Do The Same Thing Here’.
Check out Rodman’s comments below that the US has death camps and that the North Korean dictator is his friend. Some how an ignorant Rodman is able to over look the killing and starving of people because the dude is his friend. Newsflasf to Dennis, the North Korean people do not respect Kim Jong Un, they fear him. If they showed the slighted bit of opposition, they would be imprisoned or killed.
Rodman downplayed his trip that some are calling “basketball diplomacy” saying that he is not a diplomat while brushing aside allegations about North Korean death camps by saying “we do the same thing here.”
“I don’t condone that. I hate the fact that he’s doing that. I didn’t talk about that. I saw people respected him, his family. He’s only 28. He’s not his dad. He’s not his grandpa. He is 28 years old. He’s very humble. He’s a very humble man. He don’t want war, that’s one thing he don’t want. He loves power. He loves control, because of his father, you know, stuff like that. But he’s just…he’s a great guy. He’s just a great guy. You sit down and talk to him,” said Rodman.
When Stephanopoulos went after Rodman on not talking about North Korean death camps he said, “We do the same things here.”
A dumbfounded Stephanopoulos replied, “We have prison camps here in the United States?”
“This is all politics right? He don’t want to do that,” said Rodman.
“It sounds like you’re apologizing for him?” said Stephanopoulos.
“No, I’m not apologizing for him. He was a great guy to me. He was my friend. I don’t condone what he does. But as a person to person, he’s my friend. What I did was history. He’s a friend to me. That’s about it,” said Rodman.
What a perfect metaphor …
Let this be an example of you might want to wait to make sure all is ok before you get overly joyful. The North Korean regime was all gleeful when it was first reported that they had successfully shot a satellite into orbit. Not so fast my friend. NBC News is now reporting that the satellite is now spinning out of control. Looks like it is back to the drawing board.
The object that North Korea sent into space on Wednesday appears to be “tumbling out of control” as it orbits the earth, U.S. officials told NBC News.
The officials said that it is indeed some kind of space vehicle, but they still haven’t been able to determine exactly what the satellite is supposed to do.
In a statement, the White House said the rocket launch was a highly provocative act that threatens regional security and violates U.N. resolutions.
The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday condemned the launch, calling it a “clear violation” of U.N. resolutions. A spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he “deplores” the launch.
Jimmy Carter never met a dictator he did not like. Keep up the good work …
Yet another reminder why President Jimmy Carter is considered one of the worst ever in American history. Former President Carter sent North Korea a message of condolence over the death of Kim Jong-il. HUH? In his note he actually wished “every success” to Kim Jong Un, the man expected to take over as dictator. Ever wonder why Carter was swept out of office in a landslide?
Former President Jimmy Carter has sent North Korea a message of condolence over the death of Kim Jong-il and wished “every success” to the man expected to take over as dictator, according to the communist country’s state-run news agency.
A dispatch from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Mr. Carter sent the message to Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-il’s son and heir apparent.
“In the message Jimmy Carter extended condolences to Kim Jong Un and the Korean people over the demise of leader Kim Jong Il. He wished Kim Jong Un every success as he assumes his new responsibility of leadership, looking forward to another visit to [North Korea] in the future,” the KCNA dispatch read.
Condolences for a dictator who ruled his people with an iron fist and starved them to death. Seriously? How did the well wishes to the dictator in waiting read, your dad starved many, keep up the good work? This is like a bad joke as many, like Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin, half-heatedly said after the death of Kin Jung-Il, imagine that, I guess Jimmy Carter will read his eulogy and send condolences. Who knew that would become fact?
I am guessing that Jimmy Carter has his condolence letters all ready to go for Cuba’s Fidel Castro and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.
Brian in a Blue State
Kim Jong Il, the North Korean dictator is dead at the age of 69. It is being reported that he died of an apparent heart attack, according to state run media. Although many North Korean’s were seen sobbing on video, maybe the next leader of North Korea will feed his people? Kim Jung Il has ruled North Korea for the past 17 year with an iron fist. The heir-apparent to Kim Jong Il is his son, Jong-un, who is only in his 20′s. One has to wonder whether Jong-un is prepared or will have the support.
Kim Jong Il, North Korea’s mercurial and enigmatic leader, has died. He was 69.
Kim’s death was announced Monday by state television from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang.
So one of the leaders of George W. Bush’s “Axis of Evil” won’t be down for breakfast or as Weasel Zippers states, hell has a new occupant. Isn’t it telling that MSM outlets refer to Kim Jung Il as … , when all of us know that the former North Korean dictator was a menace and a global annoyance.
What now for the future of North Korea and its relationship with the rest of the world? South Korea has been put on high alert.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said late Sunday that the administration is “closely monitoring” reports of Mr. Kim’s death, that President Barack Obama had been notified and that U.S. officials are in close touch with South Korea and Japan.
“We remain committed to stability on the Korean peninsula, and to the freedom and security of our allies,” Mr. Carney said.
