Kim Jong Un Brought Something Truly Bizarre to Summit Meeting With Trump

Say what now?

North Korea

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is absolutely paranoid to the max about spies, and thus he takes a lot of super strange and odd precautions to ensure that he thwarts the efforts of the cloak and dagger types any way he possibly can.

Including bringing his own toilet to the summit with Trump in Singapore. Yes, this is actually real. No, you aren’t reading this wrong.

Kim Jong Un actually brought his own toilet to the five star hotel he is staying at in Singapore. You can’t make this kind of goofiness up, folks.

The toilet, which will deny “sewer divers insights into the supreme leader’s stools,” arrived in a transport plane ahead of him that also carried special food and his bulletproof limousine, the South Korean website Chosun reported Monday.

Kim, whose trip to the summit with Trump is only the third time he’s left North Korea since assuming power in 2011, routinely uses a portable john that accompanies him wherever he goes.

Lee Yun Keol, who served in a North Korean guard unit before defecting to South Korea in 2005, said the country’s leader always travels with a person to keep his bodily functions away from prying eyes.

“Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels,” Lee told the Washington Post. “The leader’s excretions contain information about his health status so they can’t be left behind.”

​Kim was so paranoid over fears that his plane would be shot down that on his trip to Singapore, he used an elaborate ruse involving three planes taking off an hour apart from each other to keep potential spies from seeing which aircraft he was on, Chosun reported.

Wow. Just wow.

What information can a spy get from a dictator’s stool sample that would be useful in bringing him down? Medications, perhaps? Favorite foods? Why the heck would a spy want to sewer dive for a man’s fecal matter?

Obviously this precaution was taken because this has either happened to him before or has happened to someone he knows about, which is really weird in and of itself.

Regardless, it seems this guy is really wound tight, doesn’t it? Like he’s afraid his evil actions are going to some day come back to haunt him.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

Lebron james

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
