It’s a real-life scenario so bizarre and outlandish it seems like it was dreamed up by the writers of “South Park” or “30 Rock”: Retired NBA player turned C-list reality star Dennis Rodman travels toNorth Korea, becomes the first American known to publicly meet with dictator Kim Jong Un, then returns to the U.S. proclaiming his admiration for the leader on ABC’s “This Week.”
Rodman sat down for an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, a situation that would have been mind-bogglingly weird even if the “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” cast member hadn’t just returned from one of the world’s most isolated and oppressive countries.
Oh, but he had. Throughout his conversation, Rodman brimmed with praise for the young leader – voted Sexiest Man Alive by the satirical website the Onion last year – calling Kim a “great guy” and delivering a message to President Obama on his behalf:
“He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him. He said, ‘If you can, Dennis, I don’t want [to] do war. I don’t want to do war.’ He said that to me.”
Pressed repeatedly by Stephanopoulos about Kim’s dire record on human rights, Rodman reluctantly conceded that his friend “loves power” and “loves control” but portrayed Kim as a well-meaning but misguided young man desperate to emerge from the shadow of his late father, Kim Jong Il, who died in 2011.
“He’s not his dad. Not his grandpa. He’s 28 years old,” Rodman said, adding that even though he doesn’t condone Kim’s litany of abuses – which include the mass imprisonment of some 200,000 citizens in forced labor camps and widespread, government-induced food shortages – he’s not passing judgment. After all, didn’t Bill Clinton sleep with his “secretary”?
In addition to his ubiquitous sunglasses, Rodman wore a flashy blazer festooned with American currency, a curious wardrobe choice given his new ties to the world’s most brutal communist regime: Was Rodman reassuring us of his love for capitalism, making an ironic statement about Western greed, or had he simply left his other garish attire at the dry cleaner?
Rodman, who traveled to North Korea with members of the Harlem Globetrotters and a film crew for the upcoming HBO series “Vice,” instead chose to focus on the common ground he shares with the dictator and our own commander-in-chief.
“He loves basketball. And I said the same thing, I said, ‘Obama loves basketball.’ Let’s start there,” Rodman told Stephanopoulos.
Only a few weeks ago, the former Laker was generating headlines after an emotionally unhinged appearance on “The Tonight Show.” Now Rodman, who hasn’t been this close to a powerful tyrant since his brief fling with Madonna in the mid ’90s (hey-o!), finds himself in the unlikely position of having more first-hand knowledge of Kim than just about anyone in the American intelligence community.
As Col. Steve Ganyard, a former deputy assistant secretary of State, told ABC’s Martha Raddatz: “There is nobody at the CIA who can tell you more personally about Kim Jong Un than Dennis Rodman, and that in itself is scary.”
Dennis Rodman was born on May 13th, 1961 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Rodman
May 13th, 1961
5 + 13 +1+9+6+1 = 35 = his life lesson = How long is this going to last?
May 13th, 1961
5 + 13 = 18 = his core number = Surreal. This is crazy.
May 13th, 1961
13 +1+9+6+1 = 30 = his “secret” number = Clothing. Apparel. The way he dresses.
May 13th, 1961
5 + 13 +2+0+1+2 = 23 = his personal year (from May 13th, 2012 to May 12th, 2013) = Athlete. Sports. Leadership. Just do it!
23 year + 2 (February) = 25 = his personal month (from February 13th, 2013 to March 12th, 2013) = Activist. Advocate.
23 year + 3 (March) = 26 = his personal month (from March 13th, 2013 to April 12th, 2013) = Communication. Messages. Phone calls. Call me. Spokesperson. Television. The media. In the news. Making headlines.
Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life. Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name.
May 13th, 1961 Dennis Rodman
13 (born on the 13th of the month) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 9 (i is the 9th letter of the alphabet) + 19 (s is the 19th letter of the alphabet) = 55
So the numbers 13 (born on the 13th of the month), 42 (sum of the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name), and 55 (13+42=55) rule his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four
13 = Transformation. Major changes. Things change.
42 = Relationships. Reciprocity.
55 = Is this a good idea or a bad idea?
using the number/letter grid:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

A = 1 J = 1 S = 1
B = 2 K = 2 T = 2
C = 3 L = 3 U = 3
D = 4 M = 4 V = 4
E = 5 N = 5 W = 5
F = 6 O = 6 X = 6
G = 7 P = 7 Y = 7
H = 8 Q = 8 Z = 8
