Vatican Pulls Diplomat Amid Child Porn Concerns

Pedogate is real and the U.S. is finally going after the elite pedophiles who make a mockery of the innocence of childhood.

Trump is draining the swamp in spite of his flawed response to the Dreamers issue.

The Vatican has recalled one of its diplomats to the United States after being notified that he may have violated U.S. laws on child-pornography images.

The U.S. State Department notified the Holy See on Aug. 21 of the possible violation of pornography laws by the diplomat stationed at the Vatican embassy in Washington, D.C., a Vatican press statement on Friday said.

“The Holy See, following the practice of sovereign states, recalled the priest in question, who is currently in Vatican City,” the statement said.

A U.S. State Department official told ABC News that the United States requested that the Vatican embassy in Washington waive diplomatic immunity for the individual, but the request was denied.

The State Department only asks for a waiver of diplomatic immunity when “the prosecutor advises that he or she would prosecute but for immunity,” according to department guidance in a June 2015 handbook. State Department officials referred any questions about possible allegations of criminal wrongdoing by the diplomat to the Justice Department.

The Vatican said in its statement that it has opened its own investigation with “international collaboration.”

The priest’s name has not been released. The Associated Press has reported that he is a “senior member of the Vatican embassy staff.”

The staff of the Vatican embassy or nunciature in Washington includes the ambassador, a French-born archbishop named Christophe Pierre, and under him, three counselors who support him, according to the Vatican yearbook.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops also weighed in on the matter, calling for “an immediate, thorough, and transparent investigation … in cooperation with law enforcement.”

“We hope the Holy See will be forthcoming with more details,” said the conference president, Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, Texas, in a statement. “The protection of children and young people is our most sacred responsibility.”

In 2015, a similar case involving a high-level Vatican diplomat in the Dominican Republic resulted in charges.

Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski became the first high-level member of the clergy to be formally charged with child sexual abuse and possession of child pornography by the Vatican’s criminal court according to Catholic News Service. He was defrocked and died while awaiting trial in Vatican City.

With diplomatic immunity there’s nothing that the American government can do. It looks like the Vatican is going to try to pull a cover up.

American Catholics, take note.

U.S. Urges All Americans in North Korea to “depart immediately”

Cleansing North Korea of all Americans sends a message to Kim Jung Un: “We’re going to bomb the **** out of you.”

Or does it?

It could as easily be a bluff. In any case, it denies the Norks the American dollars that tourists would otherwise be spending there.

If there is a war in Korea, then let’s dedicate it to John McCain. We could call it a “going away present” for McCain, who will surely end up somewhere very hot as his brain cancer rips his head apart and sends the old pilot on his final flight.

Dennis Rodman will be disappointed to learn that the US is set to ban all citizens from traveling to North Korea, according to two agencies that operate tours there. Koryo Tours and Young Pioneer Tours said the ban would be announced on 27 July to come into effect 30 days later, the BBC reported. “After the 30-day grace period any US national that travels to North Korea will have their passport invalidated by their government.” The ban comes one month after US student Otto Warmbier died following his imprisonment by the Kim regime.

China-based Young Pioneer Tours, which had taken Warmbier to North Korea, and Koryo Tours said the ban will come into force on July 27 – the anniversary of the end of the Korean War – with a 30-day grace period. Koryo Tours added that the Swedish embassy in Pyongyang, which handles consular affairs for the United States in the North, informed it of the ban, but did not say how long it would last. The U.S. embassy in the South Korean capital, Seoul, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Rowan Beard said that the 30-day grace period would “give leeway for any [Americans] currently in the country as tourists or on humanitarian work”. Simon Cockerill, of Koryo Tours, said: “It remains to be seen what the exact text is, but the indication is it’s just a straight up ban on Americans going.” Mr Cockerill told the BBC the agency would still conduct tours and take Americans until the ban came into effect.

Additionally, Rowan Beard of Young Pioneer Tours, told the BBC the embassy was urging all US nationals to depart immediately. He said the embassy was trying to check on the number of US tourists left in the country.

For now there has been no official confirmation from the US: the state department continues to have an alert dated 9 May strongly warning US citizens not to travel to North Korea.

As the BBC adds, there has been movement towards a ban for a while in the US, which increased with the Warmbier death.

In May, two congressmen introduced the North Korea Travel Control bill to cut off the foreign currency the country earns from American tourists. The House foreign affairs subcommittee is scheduled to take up the draft legislation on 27 July but it would still have to go to the Senate. So there could be an executive order. Last month, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said: “We have been evaluating whether we should put some type of travel visa restriction to North Korea. We have not come to a final conclusion, but we are considering it.” Apart from the treatment of Americans in North Korea, tension has been increasing over Pyongyang’s nuclear programme.

Some are suggesting the US is using the date the ban is set to be announced – 27 July – to cloud North Korea’s Victory Day on the same day. It was not clear if the urge to clear out US citizens from North Korea is a precursor to more “aggressive” (or kinetic) action by the US government.

There’s a freedom issue here that everyone is going to overlook. A free people would have the right to travel to North Korea, so long as the Norks are willing to have them. Government has no business banning its people from leaving their country to travel to any country.

Jew Terrorist Otto Warmbier Released by Norks in Goodwill Gesture Dies on American Soil

OTTO WARMBIER ON TRIAL IN COMMUNIST NORK.

Otto Warmbier, the Jewish college student who was serving time in a North Korean prison for anti-state activities, has died a week after his release was negotiated by former NBA star Dennis Rodman.

Warmbier, who arrived in the United States in a brain damaged state, never recovered his mental faculties before dying today.

To Americans, Warmbier’s alleged crime, attempted theft of state property (a poster extolling North Korean life), seemed like a minor prank. As is often the case with Americans arrested overseas, the locals had a different opinion. Warmbier was serving a 15 year sentence when released and flown to America.

ABC News

Otto Warmbier, the American student who was imprisoned in North Korea for more than 17 months and was returned home to Ohio last week, has died, his family said Monday.

“It is our sad duty to report that our son, Otto Warmbier, has completed his journey home,” his family said in part in a statement. “Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20 p.m.”

Doctors from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said last week that Warmbier, 22, was suffering from injuries related to cardiopulmonary arrest and was in a state of unresponsive wakefulness. Scans showed extensive loss in all regions of Warmbier’s brain, doctors said.

Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was medically evacuated from North Korea and flown to Cincinnati late last Tuesday. He was then transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

On Monday, the family paid tribute to Warmbier in their emotional statement.

“It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost — future time that won’t be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds,” the family’s statement continues. “But we choose to focus on the time we were given to be with this remarkable person. You can tell from the outpouring of emotion from the communities that he touched — Wyoming, Ohio, and the University of Virginia to name just two — that the love for Otto went well beyond his immediate family.”

The statement also thanked “the wonderful professionals at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center who did everything they could for Otto.”

“When Otto returned to Cincinnati late on June 13th he was unable to speak, unable to see and unable to react to verbal commands. He looked very uncomfortable — almost anguished. Although we would never hear his voice again, within a day the countenance of his face changed — he was at peace. He was home and we believe he could sense that.”

Warmbier’s passing prompted an outpouring of support.

In a statement, Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, called Warmbier a “promising young man.”

“He was kind, generous and accomplished,” Portman said. “He had all the talent you could ever ask for and a bright future ahead of him. His passing today is a loss for Ohio and for all of us. Jane and I are lifting up the Warmbier family in our prayers at this difficult time, and we are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of this remarkable young Ohioan.”

Ohio Gov. John Kasich offered his prayers to the family in a statement posted on Twitter.

University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan said Warmbier will be “missed by all those who knew and loved him.”

“It is with great sadness that we learned of Otto’s passing this afternoon. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with his family and friends during what has been an incredibly difficult time.”

You can decide for yourself your takeaway from this story. A universal frame for it might be the dangers of traveling in foreign countries, especially those countries that punish criminal acts harshly.

The family has claimed that Otto was brutalized by the Norks, thus causing his vegetative state and death. However, the one or two reports I read that included statements by his doctors in the States denied that there were any signs of brutality inflicted on Otto. FYI, the headline on Drudge right now reads “American Tortured in North Korea Dies.”

Opinions are divided about Warmbier, as these memes show:

Jews Angrily Swarm Saboteur365 Over Otto Warmbier Post

Jew Otto Warmbier was arrested, tried, and imprisoned by North Korea for violating the law in that country. He cried during his trial. There’s no doubt that his tears won him no sympathy with the tough Norks.

Jews left a small barrage of negative comments tonight insulting commenters here for expressing reasonable opinions. The post that drew the ire of the Jews can be read here.

I’m not going to give credence to the negativity by approving it for posting, but I’ll share it here, without telling you who was being insulted.

Let’s start with the long one, which is hilarious to me in the way that the left stereotypes those who disagree with them.

You’re a bunch of anonymous chickenshit idiots with no education, no brains, no hearts, no courage. You obviously all had shitty childhoods, suffered abuse from your hillbilly parents and take too many drugs, just like your mothers. You wouldn’t know a Jew if one took a shit on your tiny pointed heads. Get a fucking life you stupid fucking assholes. Your comments policy is funny as hell. You can insult everyone your little brains manage to think of, but you’re too fucking scared to take it. Talk about being a “faggot,” you’re it. Bunch of tiny balled snowflakes. Of course you won’t post this. You don’t have the guts. Go fuck your dogs and sheep or whatever keeps your dicks moist every night. Oh that’s right, you can’t get them up. Sorry.

The comments policy exists to keep people focused on the issues and not on personalities. This guy hits every stupid, false narrative about conservatives, while ignoring any real issue. It’s just some kind of sociopathic response by a tyrant wannabee to people he hates.

Like some of you say, we generally don’t go to liberal sites and insult people on their home turf. So, why would this bitter commenter think it’s going to be allowed here?

There were also comments left in response to different people by a female Jew. Here’s a few of those to give you the flavor:

G-d help your little boy– he will need it after being raised by a bigoted, intellectually challenged moron!

May karma bite your judgmental ass

youre a disgrace to “white” ppl everywhere….
I pray to G-d you are sterile and can bring no more of your “kind” into the world…

You are an idiot… but, I doubt you realize what an ass you’ve made of yourself with this post…
Btw, karma is a bitch… judge this YOUNG AMERICAN for being young and dumb and watch what happens to YOUR children– unless HaShem has made you sterile– one can only pray that is the case

OK, that’s enough. You see that when the left can’t respond to intellectual thought, they resort to ad hominem attacks.

These people seem to have no appreciation for the idea that not everyone is weak-minded. The Norks don’t mess around. Otto Warmbier should have known that. In fact, he probably did know that but thought his Jewish privilege would give him a pass. It’s a reasonable theory. I’m sure many people visit North Korea and don’t try to steal a propaganda banner to bring home with them, as Otto allegedly did.

I’ve embedded Styx’s harsh critique of Otto below. Styx is neither left nor right, not a racist, but a realist. I wonder what kind of insults the Jews who commented here would come up with to insult Styx.

Styx has no sympathy for Otto. About seven minutes:

There’s very little sympathy expressed for Otto at youtube, but I think most people who watch Styx are fans of his.

You can read the latest on Otto at NPR. There’s no sign that the Norks tortured him. His brain dead state apparently resulted from a heart attack, although his parents are claiming that he was brutalized.

The Dennis Rodman Effect: American Jew Student Otto Warmbier Released by North Korea in a Coma

OTTO WARMBIER ARRESTED BY NORTH KOREA, NOW RELEASED.

Otto Warmbier did whatever North Korea said he did. Of that I’m certain. He thought his Jewish privilege carried weight in NORK.

Nope. Jews don’t control North Korea.

Dennis Rodman goes to North Korea yesterday and a few hours later, Kim Jong Un releases an American held prisoner. Good work, Rodman. But why didn’t the black president send you on a diplomatic mission?

No matter. The press is being forced to call this a victory for Trump.

Warmbier cried at his trial, the big crybaby. Disgraceful.

The Independent

American university student Otto Warmbier imprisoned in North Korea has been medically evacuated in a coma, according to his parents.

Mr Warmbier, 22, is due to arrive home in Cincinnati on Tuesday evening, after a stop at a US military facility in Sapporo, Japan.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement that: “At the direction of [Donald Trump], the Department of State has secured the release”. No further details were provided.

Mr Warmbier’s parents, Fred and Cindy, said in a statement that they have been told their son has been in a coma since March 2016, and they had learned of this only one week ago.

They said: “We want the world to know how we and our son have been brutalised and terrorised by the pariah regime” in North Korea.

They also said they are grateful he “will finally be with people who love him.”

Mr Warmbier, a student at the University of Virginia, went with a tour group from Beijing to Pyongyang in January 2016 despite US State Department travel warnings.

He was arrested and convicted while trying to leave the country after his group’s “New Year’s Party Tour”.

The charge, according to North Korean news agency, was “perpetrating a hostile act against” the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – the official name for the reclusive Communist nation.

Mr Warmbier allegedly attempted to steal a propaganda banner from the hotel in which he was staying, but it remains unclear whether this is true.

Of course it’s true. And it’s also true that Warmbier disgraced the American male by his histrionics. Most people think he’s a white Christian male, but he’s a Jew. Let his pussified response not be linked to the white man.

Report: Trump Commands State Department to Slash UN Funding in Half

This is what America First looks like.

President Trump’s proposed cut in United Nations funding offers a great example of cutting the globalists off at the knees. It’s too bad he can’t cut American dollars going to the mostly worthless UN to zero.

Americans aren’t loved at the UN, but American dollars sure are. It proves he adage that money can’t buy love.

Nikki Haley, Trump’s UN Ambassador and a globalist, did not support him during the campaign. In fact, she was pretty nasty toward him. Now, you have to ask yourself whether she will resign in protest. I hope so as it would marginalize her even more. But her Twitter shows that she loves the showy, celebrity lifestyle that her ambassadorship confers. She’s not going to quit.

TRUMP MAY HAVE WIPED THAT SMILE OFF NIKKI’S FACE.

Excerpt from Breitbart

President Donald Trump has instructed the State Department to slash its $10 billion budget for funding United Nations programs by as much as 50 percent, Foreign Policy is reporting.

The article said the move is “signaling an unprecedented retreat by [the] administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen.”

FP used three unnamed sources for its report, which also called Trump’s directive “draconian measures” taken ahead of the planned release on Thursday of his 2018 federal budget proposal.

The budget “is expected to include cuts of up to 37 percent for spending on the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign assistance programs, including the U.N., in next year’s budget,” according to the report, which went on:

It remains unclear whether the full extent of the steeper U.N. cuts will be reflected in the 2018 budget, which will be prepared by the White House Office of Management and Budget, or whether, as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has proposed, the cuts would be phased in over the coming three years. One official close to the Trump administration said Tillerson has been given flexibility to decide how the cuts would be distributed.

Richard Gowan, a U.N. expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations, told FP these budget cuts would create “chaos.”

The U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR), for example, received nearly 40 percent of its budget from the United States in 2016. Cutting the U.S. contribution would “leave a gaping hole that other big donors would struggle to fill,” according to Gowan.

The left-leaning FP cites Trump’s intention to cut diplomacy and foreign assistance programs will help him increase the funding for the U.S. military by $54 billion, a “shift” from the Obama administration’s approach to the federal budget.

“State Department officials, for instance, were told that they should try to identify up to $1 billion in cuts in the U.N. peacekeeping budget, according to one source,” FP reported. “The United States provides about $2.5 billion per year to fund peacekeepers.”

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, cautioned against “slash-and-burn cuts” during her Senate confirmation hearing but is said to be reviewing the U.N.’s 16 peacekeeping missions for possible cuts.

The United States pays over 22 percent of the U.N.’s $2.5 billion yearly administrative budget, including money “to battle climate change.”

FP reported that “U.N. diplomats and foreign dignitaries say they expect the United States to seek to eliminate funding for some agencies unpopular with conservatives — including the U.N. Population Fund, which receives about $35 million a year from the United States for family planning programs, and the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change.”

Also, “the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which provides aid to Palestinian refugees, has long been the target of Israeli and congressional criticism on the grounds that it has a pro-Palestinian bias.

Campaign promises are being fulfilled one by one. The UN is anti-American and not where the real work gets done anyway. Let it die.

Report: Trump Sees Opening to Work a Deal with North Korea!

kim jong

Well, this is a surprise.

How would the Trump administration approach making peace with North Korea? It’s not been on top of the news cycle because President Trump hasn’t talked about it much.

NOLA

By The Washington Post
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Preparations are underway to bring senior North Korean representatives to the United States for talks with former American officials, the first such meeting in more than five years and a sign that Pyongyang sees a potential opening with the Trump administration.

Arranging the talks has become a lot more complicated over the past eight days, with North Korea testing a ballistic missile and the assassination of Kim Jong Un’s half brother in Malaysia, an act that many suspect was ordered by the leader of North Korea. Malaysian police on Sunday named as suspects four North Koreans who left the country on the day of the attack.
