Pseudo-Random Thoughts

This Michael Ramirez Cartoon nade ne laugh out loud.

I even saved a copy, something I do less than once a year.
- 9:10 AM, 20 May 2018   [link]


Joseph Wulfsohn Thinks Journalists Should Be More Responsible In Covering Mass Shootings:  In order not to inspire copycats.
When a mass shooting is active, it’s obviously the media’s instinct to cover it minute by minute and report any updates as they occur.  When the suspect is identified, we become obsessed with knowing everything about the killer; their name, their age, their race, their religion, their social media history, where they got the gun, if there were red flags, any hint of a motive.  This is all information we should know, but there comes a point when our responsibility as journalists morphs into inspiration for future mass shooters.

Whether you look at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Fort Hood, Charleston, San Bernardino, Orlando, Las Vegas, or Parkland, the similarities in execution are striking, and there is a strong case that some were inspired by others
Wulfsohn is right I believe, but I doubt that many journalists will show the restraint they ought to, unless we stop listening to them, watching them, and reading them.

"Pepper . . . And Salt" is surprisingly nasty — but it made me smile.

And I kind of like the New Yorker comment on a certain wedding.

This Week's Collection Of Cartoons from Politico.

My favorites:  None.

But I do like Andy Marlette's tribute to Tom Wolfe.

And some will find this political cartoon from the New Yorker funny.

Since I Have Nothing To Add To The News About The Attack on the Texas school, I won't waste your time by repeating what others are saying.

Most Americans Don't Think Donald Trump is "honest and trustworthy".
Only thirteen percent of Americans said they would consider President Trump to be honest and trustworthy, according to a new Survey Monkey tracking poll.

Trump's honesty and trustworthiness score is down 3 points from when Survey Monkey started conducting the tracking polls in February of 2017.
Meanwhile, his average job approval is running at about 40 percent.

So, we can conclude that at least 27 percent of Americans think that Trump is not honest and trustworthy — but approve of his job performance, anyway.

(Or 25 percent, if you want to allow for sampling error and such.)

Is John Bolton Trying To Sabotage The Trump/Kim Talks?  That's what I suspect.

Bolton, who is smart and well-informed, would know that the North Koreans often use the Libyan example to explain why they can't give up their nukes.

And so describing it as a model would make the North Koreans extremely suspicious.
If you’re serious about peace and denuclearization, maybe don’t mention Libya.  That appears to be the message North Korea had for the United States on Wednesday when Pyongyang postponed talks with South Korea and threatened to cancel the June 12 summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump.

Apart from the ongoing U.S.-South Korean air force drills, North Korea appeared especially dismayed by suggestions from U.S. national security adviser John Bolton that a Libya-style solution could work with North Korea.
Bolton would expect that reaction from the North Koreans.

(For the record:  Since I don't expect anything good to come of the talks, if they do occur, I don't particularly object to this sabotage, if that is what it is.)

Two For Today:  "Pepper . . . and Salt" is amusing.

Venezuela Has Been Subsidizing Cuba:  No surprise there, but one of the ways surprised me.
Venezuela’s state-run oil firm PDVSA has bought nearly $440 million worth of foreign crude and shipped it directly to Cuba on friendly credit terms - and often at a loss, according to internal company documents reviewed by Reuters.

The shipments are the first documented instances of the OPEC nation buying crude to supply regional allies instead of selling them oil from its own vast reserves.

Venezuela made the discounted deliveries, which have not been previously reported, despite its dire need for foreign currency to bolster its collapsing economy and to import food and medicine amid widespread shortages.
Cuba gets cheaper oil; Venezuelans go without food and medicines.

As I have mentioned before, I think it likely that Cubans are running Venezuela's security services.

Trump's Strange ZTE Tweets:  First the background.
The Commerce Department on Monday barred U.S. companies from exporting to Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE for seven years, saying the company had violated a previous settlement of criminal and civil charges for making illegal shipments to Iran and North Korea.

Under the terms of the 2017 settlement, ZTE agreed to pay the United States $1.19 billion in fines and punish the employees involved in breaching U.S. sanctions by shipping telecommunications equipment to Iran and making 283 shipments of microprocessors, routers and servers to North Korea.
That was a month ago.  And the Defense Department has banned ZTE equipment from US bases, citing security risks.

So what explains these tweets, and this apparent change in policy?
President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast.  Too many jobs in China lost.  Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!   — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2018

ZTE, the large Chinese phone company, buys a big percentage of individual parts from U.S. companies.  This is also reflective of the larger trade deal we are negotiating with China and my personal relationship with President Xi.   — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 14, 2018
Daniel Drezner believes that Trump's desire for a "deal, any deal" explains this strange reversal of US policy.

Journalist Heather Long is just baffled.

And me?  I see this as more evidence that Trump is no match for Xi.

Cats Won't Understand this "Pepper . . . and Salt" cartoon.

The AP Put The Wrong Picture on this story.
The U.S. clothing retailer Gap apologized Tuesday for selling T-shirts with a map of China that didn’t include self-ruled Taiwan, the latest example of corporate kowtowing to Beijing.

“Upon the realization that one of our T-shirts sold in some overseas markets mistakenly failed to reflect the correct map of China, we urgently launched an internal investigation across the group and have decided to immediately pull back this T-shirt from all the concerned global markets,” the company said in a statement, adding that the shirts had already been pulled from Chinese shelves and destroyed.
They should have illustrated it with a picture of the Gap president doing a kowtow to "Emperor" Xi Jinping.

(Gap is probably not the best place to get that "Free Tibet" T-shirt you have always wanted.)

Worth Reading:  Ed Morrissey's long post, "Daycare for terrorists?"
John Hinderaker calls it “the worst scandal in Minnesota history,” and one can only hope he’s right.  The local Fox affiliate spent five months tracking the flow of cash going out in carry-on baggage through Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, and more importantly, where it originates.  That turns out to be in large part from government day-care payments that end up being for non-existent enrollees
If you have been paying even a little attention to Somalia, it won't surprise you to learn that investigators suspect much of the money is going to the terrorist organization al Shabaab.

I wonder if something similar is happening here in the Seattle area, where there is also a significant Somali population?

Yesterday, I Forgot To Mention that Michael Oren's Ally now includes "a new afterword about the Iran nuclear agreement, the 2016 presidential race, and the future of the U.S.-Israel alliance".

In 1994, Bill Clinton Signed A Non-Proliferation Agreement With North Korea:  The networks loved it.

For example:
At the time, CBS’s Dan Rather declared the deal “could end the long-running crisis with North Korea over nuclear weapons” as well as perhaps “open the way for normal relations between the U.S. and one of the world’s last old-line, hard-line Communist states.”
The networks were not bothered by the weak inspections parts of the agreement, though many critics were, even at that time.

How did the Clinton agreement with North Korea work out?

Poorly, from our point of view.
In 1994, North Korea pledged, under the "Agreed Framework" with the United States, to freeze its plutonium programs and dismantle all its nuclear weapons programs in return for several kinds of assistance, including construction of two modern nuclear power plants powered by light-water reactors.

By 2002, the United States believed that North Korea was pursuing both uranium enrichment technology and plutonium reprocessing technologies in defiance of the Agreed Framework.  North Korea reportedly told American diplomats in private that they were in possession of nuclear weapons, citing American failures to uphold their own end of the "Agreed Framework" as a motivating force.  North Korea later "clarified" that it did not possess weapons yet, but that it had "a right" to possess them, despite the Agreed Framework.  In late 2002 and early 2003, North Korea began to take steps to eject International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors while re-routing spent fuel rods for plutonium reprocessing for weapons purposes.  As late as the end of 2003, North Korea claimed that it would freeze its nuclear program in exchange for additional American concessions, but a final agreement was not reached.  North Korea withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 2003.

On October 9, 2006, North Korea demonstrated its nuclear capabilities with its first underground nuclear test, detonating a plutonium based device[39] and the estimated yield was 0.2–1 kiloton.[8]  The test was conducted at P'unggye-yok, and U.S. intelligence officials later announced that analysis of radioactive debris in air samples collected a few days after the test confirmed that the blast had taken place.[39]  The United Nations Security Council condemned the test in Resolution 1874.
Quite well, from the North Korean point of view.  They received large amounts of aid, including hundreds of millions of dollars worth of food aid, but did not slow down their efforts to build nuclear weapons in any significant way.

In the United States, Bill Clinton has received almost no criticism for signing this agreement, but George W. Bush has received considerable criticism for recognizing that the North Koreans were breaking it.

(Here's a description of the Agreed Framework, for those interested in the details.  The usual caveats apply.)

Recycled from July 2015.   (I haven't checked the links or the quotations.)

This piece of history should help everyone understand why so many of us are skeptical about any agreement with North Korea.

Think The Coverage Of Israel Is Excessive?  Israeli ambassador Michael Oren agrees with you, and has some solid evidence on that question.

For example:
Something obviously changed.

That something, according to former Associated Press reporter Matti Friedman, is the grossly disproportionate number of journalists assigned to cover Israel—more, Friedman writes, than "AP had in China, Russia, or in India, or in all the 50 sub-Saharan African countries combined."  (from chapter "Hatchet Jobs")
Unfortunately, the Associated Press is typical in that excess, and better than most news organizations in avoiding the worst kinds of bias against Israel.

But probably not much better than, for instance the BBC, in telling us about the faults of those attacking Israel.  They won't often tell you, for instance, that Gaza is run by a terrorist organization, Hamas, and that one of the most popular books there is Hitler's Mein Kampf.
