Weapons Grade Goofiness: North Korea’s Kim Jong Un can control the weather

From the and “here all along it was supposed to be CO2, but instead its imperious leader Kim Jong Un” department comes this hilarious news story. According to North Korea’s state run media, Kim Jong Un controlled the weather when he scaled a sacred mountain known as Mount Paektu. I suppose we’ll have to swap out the carbon dioxide control knob that climate scientists, Al Gore and Jerry Brown are claiming controls the weather (most recently wildfires in SoCal according to Brown) and replace it with another (equal, but more emotive) control knob: Kim Jong Un. It used to be “CO2 is there anything it can’t do?”. Now we’ll have to revise that to say “Kim Jong Un, is there anything he can’t do?”.

PYONGYANG, North Korea – Making a bizarre claim, the North Korean media claimed that the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un can control the weather.

According to North Korea’s state media, Kim Jong Un controlled the weather when he scaled a sacred mountain. The dictator is said to have dressed in smart leather shoes and climbed the 2,744m high Mount Paektu.

Pyongyang media stated that the mountain has a special place in Korean folklore and has been used by the Kim family for generations in propaganda. The state media claimed that it was snowing because the mountain wanted to give a “warm welcome” to Kim Jong Un.

According to the report, Mount Paektu wanted to “show joy at the appearance of the peerlessly illustrious commander who controls the nature.”

Let’s hope they use this bad boy to guide their ICBM’s. With a little luck, one will boomerang right back on them and save the Donald from having to take care of things.

Except Jerry Brown doesn’t do a very good job of controlling nature in California.

But he just came out and blamed Trump for the fires, so I guess he believes that President Trump is the one who has the power to control the nature.

Ridiculous. Everyone knows that only the UN can control the weather. Not weather exactly but, even more omnipotently, the planet’s climate.

The CAGW gang also believes that Trump controls the ‘weather’ because, by pulling out of Paris and hampering their New Save The World Order plan, he is said to be ruining the climate.

So, really, what’s the difference between those North Koreans who actually believe this and those who fall for the CO2 fairy tale?

Not much. And, in both cases, for the people at the top it has nothing to do with weather or climate but is all about power.

I think the funniest part of this story is the claim that he “scaled” this mountain, though I suppose that word could describe his walk from the helicopter.

Kim may have not this through. Strike that… of course he hasn’t thought this through. If he can control the weather then surely he controls the crop yields and has intentionally caused millions of his citizens to starve. Not the best way to curry favor with the masses but then it did work for Mao for a while.

December 10, 2017 9:23 pm

Maybe Governor Brown should hold a Climate summit with Kim Jung-un. Jerry can learn how to control the weather and the wild fires, and do something about the “new normal” in California.

December 10, 2017 9:35 pm

Given North Korea is a nuclear power, Kim’s claim is more credible than claims CO2 is the control knob…

If he can control the weather, why can’t he control his own weight?

3 cents worth: he looks fatter each time you see him because among other things, he is preparing his own succession. That’s right, he’s pregnant!

Good question.

But we shouldn’t be too hard on Obama: it looks like he may have achieved his promise on the oceans, at least just before Trump kicked him out of the White House:
According to the data sea levels have been flat or falling for several years.

If I were a cynic – which thank goodness I’m not – I might think NASA have failed to update the graph since July because they’re trying to hide the decline.

The other graph tells a powerful story. I can’t understand how anyone can look at that tide gauge graph and still claim that sea level rise is a serious threat.

You mean “poor sods”, don’t you. It would take more than one at a time to carry that fellow up the mountain.

You look at videos of the fattest man in North Korea surrounded by his generals and the poor ole generals look like scarecrows in comparison to Kim Jung-un, and they have to be the best-fed people in the country other than Kim, although the guys in the picture look a little healthier.

It’s really a huge scandal that the last three American presidents have allowed this insane North Korean regime to get so dangerous. They wanted to kick the can down the road and now we have run out of road.

When Trump nukes the hell out of Kim, the Western elites will blame Trump rather than Kim Jung-un and previous feckless American presidents, and Russia and China.

1)Seems to me a pretty standard thinking: when you are a very good person, the sky acknowledge by sending you appropriate weather, and, the other way round, when you are bad leader you have bad weather (and your people have, too: that’s your fault). So a properly managed propaganda will boast of the good weather. Or it would just as well praise the Leader for vanquishing the bad weather, if it happened
2) unless the man is a fool, he would consult weathermen on the best time to do the trip, so, in a way, he indeed control weather, the same way the king of “the little prince” can order a sunrise …only at the proper hour!

Putin: North Koreans Would Rather Eat Grass Than Give Up Nukes, If They Don’t Feel Safe

Why is that ?


In a 1984 interview, Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay, head of the Strategic Air Command during the Korean War, claimed U.S. bombs “killed off 20 percent of the population” and “targeted everything that moved in North Korea.” These acts, largely ignored by the U.S.’ collective memory, have deeply contributed to Pyongyang’s contempt for the U.S. and especially its ongoing military presence on the Korean Peninsula.

Reply to  Eric Coo
December 11, 2017 9:09 am

GEN LeMay was wrong. Total military and civilian Korean deaths in the Korean War, started by the North, were around 2.2 million out of over 30 million in 1950.

The Kim crime family killed about 15% of its subject enslaved population in the famine of the 1990s alone. Add to that those publicly executed for listening to RoK soap operas and similar crimes, those worked to death in forced labor camps and killed or died trying to escape, and you’ll see who the real war criminals are in this picture.

Putin is a mass murdering thief who has invaded other countries besides his oppression of Chechnya, before making peace with the Islamist regime there. He has supported fellow mass murderers in Georgia, Ukraine, Crimea and Syria. He and Assad bolstered ISIS in order to weaken resistance to the genocidal Alawite regime in Syria, to include allowing thousands of Chechen jihadis to travel to Syria.

America, OTOH, has liberated countries from genocidal maniacs like Saddam.
