Weird things are happening with basketball, skiing and North Korea. As basketball star Dennis Rodman and North Korea's ruler, Kim Jung Un, claim cultural exchange will lead to peace.
North Korea's new ruler is talking cultural exchange, skiing, and peace in Korea spent a lot of money and effort on basketball diplomacy and a fancy new ski resort,
while he prevents the long hoped for meeting between families split by the Korean Cold War, and executes those who dissent his cultural peace ideas. The Moonies must be lobbying Dennis Rodman at least from a distance. and also the new ruler of North Korea likely even early on in his life.
Please check out the list of Unification Church Affiliated organizations in Wikipdedia,
Note the Yeongpyeong Ski Resort, and the several Unification Church organizations whose stated goal is trying to unite South and North Korea.
Kim Jung Un's father the previous ruler when the US and North Korea weren't speaking to each other considered the Moonies the unofficial representatives from Washington.
When it comes to the US domestically, much of the fear of the Moonies is gone.
Back in 2008 there was Korea-gate. Congressional representative Donald Fraser sounded the alarm of a massive amount of influence peddling and intrigue going on until the Moonies poured money to get him defeated in the last election,
The following is short important review,
Many think when it comes to America they are only history. However in summer 2012 they were lobbying very hard to get Mitt Romney elected President, To me Moon's religious claim that Eve ate the seed of Satan in the Apple in the Garden of Eden and God's seed led to Jesus's birth making good and evil represent a fight between God and Satan over who gets to father mankind's children has in my mind nothing to do with Mormon religious interpretation. However they and some others believe that if Romney made Mormonism acceptable then the Unification Church beliefs would become more acceptable as well. The anti-Islam insult film was almost a wild card in the election
The hate porn film ie Innocence of Muslims,
would have been far worse if Muslims were persuaded to watch the premiere showing, leading to making a scene at the theater followed by riots oversea that some would say the local Muslim movie watchers angry comments were helping inflame the riots overseas. Or if a Jewish leader was killed for allegedly being one of the 100 imaginary donors and his relatives joined an Ismophobia crusade. Ambassador Stevens was a risk taker who spoke fluent Arabic and had goals the opposite of Islamophobia, and his family shared his vision. The Navy Seals who died also had relatives who demanded Romney not politicalize their loved one's deaths. There is something wrong I think with the West to consider framing and smearing a porn actor and some Jewish business leaders has something to do with free speech. Charles Manson wanted to plunge the world into a Helter Skeler race war. The film had an awful potential that never totally got out of hand.
Both the original and dubbed film started with an awkward teen teased because he didn't know who his father was, being told by his mother that his father came from off the earth. After some porn and anti Muslim insult an awkward kid grew into a blood-spattered sadist. Certainly not something amateur when it comes to baiting anger. Moon's Washington Times, UPI (United Press International) and others were helping spread the false Benghazi exposes as well.
Way back in 1975 I wrote a take off on a children's fairytale concerning the CIA using the Moonies. "Life Boat Ethics and the Greedy Little Squirrels" about little squirrels hiring guard dogs to protect their nuts only to be in the end eaten by the dogs. Several of my friends suddenly acted strange when I came around until an old man who used to be with CORE, Jim Williams a retired civil right's activists told me that the Moonies who had been surrounding him and trying to befriend him told me that their comment to him about me was a threat. Since then I had some incidents where the person, more often two, didn't claimed to be involved with them but went to great almost unbelievable lengths to harass me. A friend was being baited by people in Jamaica accents to supposedly make a lot of money. He needed a lawyer's advise because of an upcoming eviction hearing. A lawyer from the Senior Law Center was going to call him on my phone because he was low on minutes on his lifeline cell phone. Instead Jamaicans called every few seconds I was quickly picking up the receiver and hanging up as soon as the caller id said Jamaica. The lawyer's call never got through. Where the police do there job more than Philadelphia I was told by another person that they were told by the local detective that someone local was likely keeping watch as those with Jamaican accents called. It made no sense if they didn't have something to do with trying to keep my friend and me in a cornered to call so many times a minute, rather than an attempt to make money. The blogspere only shows Moonie fund-raising rackets only in Japan, but I have had a number of personal incidents that indicate to me that the Moonies are anything but a has been organization. I think articles like
are relaxing too easily.
My hope is that as time goes on, these points will fit into place more
