How Many Poops Does it Take to Create a Petty Dictator?

Only a third-world backwater communist dictator would have ordered something like this.

Kim Jong Un, North Korean dictator, butcher, and murderer of his own brother, has decreed that every able-bodied citizen must turn in 100 kg (220 pounds) of human feces a day to be used for fertilizer, to bolster the agricultural sector.

North Korean Poop Mandate

Kim announced the poop scoop requirement in his New Year’s address saying that the agricultural front would be the primary instrument for economic reconstruction, according to an article published on Radio Free Asia (RAF) January 18.

Quoting an anonymous source in North Hamgyong province, RFA’s Korean Service said, “After Kim Jong Un’s [speech], the entire population has been mobilized to produce manure as the first major task of the year The authorities in each local region task factories, institutions and citizens groups with assigning production quotas to each individual”.

“They are demanding that each person produce 100kg of human feces per day, or about 3 tons per month,” said the source. “But how on earth can it be possible for one person to make 3 tons of human feces and deliver it?”

Well, yeah!

While the collection of human feces is a yearly task, high quotas this year are driving many to find interesting ways to collect human feces in the bitter cold, or to find ways to get out of their quota.

Some however, are critical of the government, saying the high quotas amount to a shakedown of the people.

“If you cannot fill the quota, you have to supply 300kg of compost or livestock manure instead,” the source added.

“Most people can’t [make or collect] 100kg per day, so they end up giving what they think is sufficient. The quota is therefore meaningless,” said the source.

“[The quotas] are the same in both the cities and the countryside because the quotas are applied to everyone evenly,” said the source, adding “When the city’s clothing and food factories are [operating at full capacity], workers will try all sorts of ways to fill the quota.”

There are, however, alternative ways for North Korean citizens to buy their way out of the potty pot.

“Compared with last year, there’s a growing number of residents who are choosing to pay cash instead of providing the manure itself,” said the source.

In addition to paying cash, citizens can buy manure from merchants.

“The manure merchants are doing really well these days, charging 20 yuan (about $3) per 100kg of human feces or 300kg of compost,” the source said.

“Young women who work in restaurants and beauty parlors usually just pay cash, though,” said the source.

Another source, also in North Hamgyong province, said, “The residents of Chongjin City have been fully mobilized to fulfil this task. Authorities are encouraging people to produce more manure, stressing that it provides a vital boost to the agricultural front, and thereby the socialist movement in general,” the source said.

“People are becoming increasingly dissatisfied though, as authorities are keeping production records for each person and putting pressure on those who haven’t produced enough [to fill their quota.],” said the source.

So, if one day’s pile of poop to equals 100 kg, how many piles of poop do you have to make before you have a Kim Jong Un?

“In winter, there isn’t as much manure and compost. Cash payments exceed the value of the manure that actually ends up being delivered, so people are saying the regime is just using the quota as a means to collect more money from the citizens,” the source said.

“More than 80% of all the female workers in Chongjin’s clothing factory pay cash instead of manure,” said the source.

“People are angry, criticizing the regime for [deliberately setting quotas so high] to force people to pay cash, then claiming it’s for agricultural production.”

The Trump Effect: The new and improved Kim Jong Un

North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un used to wear severe “Mao” suits.

This is what the formerly dour Kim Jong Un wore on August 7, 2018, while visiting a fish pickling factory (source: UPI):

The beaming Kim looks so relaxed, I hardly recognized it’s him.

He has also eased up on anti-U.S. propaganda, and turned over remains of U.S. soldiers killed in the Korean War as he’d promised he would at the historic summit meeting with President Trump last month in Singapore.

Astonishing . . . .

None of this, of course, means U.S. relations and negotiations with North Korea will be all smooth sailing.

Just yesterday, as reported by fake news CNN, Pyongyang “issued a forceful statement…against what it said were elements of the US government which are not adhering to the spirit of the dialogue established by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Singapore summit in June.”

Little steps.

Fake conservative George Will urges voting against Republicans in November midterm elections

In just 1½ years as President, Donald Trump already has achieved more than Obama in eight years, including:

  • Economy: Unemployment has fallen to 3.8% in May 2018, which is effective full employment. Worker productivity increased 3% in the third quarter of 2017, far above the 1.2% average of the Obama years. The number of manufacturing jobs in November 2017 was the highest recorded increase in 15 years.

rate of unemployment 2008-2018 BLS


Despite all that, writing in the Washington Post last Friday, June 23, supposedly-conservative and supposedly-pro-life Catholic columnist George Will, 77 — one of the Never-Trump Republicans in the 2016 presidential election — urged Americans to vote against Republicans in this November’s midterm elections, not because Congressional Republicans are still too timid, but because they have acceded to President Trump’s “family separating” border policy.

It must be noted that what the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the  Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision allowing unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.”

Rachel Koning Beals reports for Market Watch that Will calls lame duck House Speaker Paul Ryan and others the “president’s poodles,” and Trump’s “zero tolerance” border policy “the most telegenic example of misrule” and “fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which” independents and moderate Republicans should vote in the November midterms.
Will even says a GOP majority’s position to fill any upcoming Supreme Court vacancies is too high a price to pay for the Trump administration’s executive and legislative “dysfunction”. He writes:

“the congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of the Constitution’s Article I powers that they have been too invertebrate to use against the current wielder of Article II powers. They will then have leisure time to wonder why they worked so hard to achieve membership in a legislature whose unexercised muscles have atrophied because of people like them. Not because James Madison’s system has failed but because today’s abject careerists have failed to be worthy of it. Congressional Republicans . . . have no higher ambition than to placate this president.”


Earlier this week, longtime Republican strategist Steve Schmidt also called for a Democratic wave in the midterm elections, blaming Trump for a “coarsening of this country” and calling the president a “useful idiot” for Russia.
So Schmidt actually believes in the Russia-Trump 2016 electoral collusion, despite not a shred of evidence? But this guy gets big bucks as a Republican strategist?
Hmm, I can’t help but wonder what dark secrets are in the closets of George Will and Steve Schmidt which they are so terrified would be exposed by “zero tolerance” Trump….

N. Korean despot Kim Jong Un's slush fund nearly depleted

The curious communist dynasty of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea — better known as North Korea — is a poor country, with an estimated per capita GDP (nominal) of only $1,000 in 2014.

Satellite image of the Korean peninsula at night shows North Korea enveloped in darkness, in contrast to the bright lights of South Korea


So how does Kim Jong Un — the son of Kim Jong Il and grandson of North Korea’s founder Kim Il Sung — finance the country’s missile and nuclear weapon program that Kim #3 is using to threaten the United States, and intimidate and bully South Korea and Japan?
Answer: A secret slush fund, called Office No. 39.
But that slush fund, used also to fund vanity projects such as the much-publicized Masikryong Ski Resort, is now nearly depleted.

Greg Norman reports for Fox News, January 26, 2018, that two Chinese sources with ties to top North Korean government officials told Radio Free Asia:

“Most of the funding for nuclear weapon and missile development is coming from Kim Jong Un’s slush fund. Due to Kim’s extravagant spending, the slush fund from his father, Kim Jong Il, is running out. It won’t be easy to control North Korea’s high-level executives, who are [cunning] like raccoons. I heard them worrying about insufficient funds in Office No. 39 a number of times.”

Office No. 39 is a shadowy organization under the ruling North Korean Workers’ Party, which generates up to a billion dollars annually for Kim and his cronies through:

  • Illicit activities, such as counterfeiting and drug production.
  • $500 million a year in earnings that 100,000 North Koreans working abroad send back, according to a U.N. estimate.
  • Charity: The source said North Korea’s participation in the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, is a way to solicit charity while appearing to mend relations with South Korea. But “it won’t be easy for the South to help the Kim Jong Un regime because of international sanctions.”

Meanwhile, the sanctions, combined with a poor harvest, have left North Korea’s military scrambling for food rations, as soldiers are being given months off at a time to scrounge around fields to find things to eat. Reportedly, North Korean officials are ransacking the homes of drought-stricken farmers to collect every last grain of food inside.
President Ronald Reagan’s arms race with the Soviet Union hastened the USSR’s economic and subsequent political collapse. I submit that President Trump is doing the same with “rocket man” Kim Jong Un.
By the way, here’s a video explaining how North Korea’s nuclear capabilities are a direct result of President Bill Clinton’s coddling:

Hawaii EMA worker who sent out false missile alert refusing to work with investigators

hawaii missile alert error
Guess the worker really doesn’t “feel awful” about hitting the button, TWICE, after all.
From Fox News: The infamous “button-pusher” who sent out a false missile alert that caused chaos across the Hawaiian Islands earlier this month is now refusing to work with federal and internal investigators, a top Federal Communications Commission official said Thursday.
The unidentified Hawaii Emergency Management Agency official has backed off working with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) — and also has refused to work with two internal Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HI-EMA) investigationsThe Star Advertiser reported.
The FCC’s Homeland Security Bureau chief Lisa Fowlkes confirmed this at a Senate hearing on Thursday saying that while HI-EMA leaders have cooperated, “we are disappointed, however, that one key employee, the person who transmitted the false alert, is refusing to cooperate with our investigation.”
“We hope that person will reconsider,” Fowlkes added.
On January 13, a civil defense employee at HI-EMA accidently sent out an alert that notified more than a million people in Hawaii that they were about to be struck by a nuclear missile. Some 38 minutes passed before HI-EMA officials sent an alert to people’s phones confirming the false alarm.
That employee has since been temporarily reassigned within the agency as the investigation continues.
