Otto Warmbier dies days after
release from North Korean detainment

Washington Post, by Susan Svrluga

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/19/2017 4:45:24 PM

Otto Warmbier, University of Virginia student who was detained in North Korea for nearly a year and a half, died Monday afternoon, his parents announced. Warmbier returned from North Korea last week in a coma, and his father Fred Warmbier denounced the “pariah” regime that brutalized his son. Fred and Cindy Warmbier issued a statement Monday afternoon: It is our sad duty to report that our son, Otto Warmbier, has completed his journey home. Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20pm. 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,

Comments:
This now ups the ante on what our State Department can do next. Sadly, a very stupid prank in North Korea cost him his life as the threat of Armageddon increases in Southeast Asia.

This is so sad. Going to North Korea is like going to Iran. Poisonous places.

This is so very, very sad and so very unnecessary. I admit that it did make me cry. My heart breaks for that family.

That leading from behind sure worked out well for them didn´t it. s/o Barack Hussein Obama and his Marxist regime have blood on their hands. There was absolutely no reason for this to have been allowed to happen.

Regardless his stupid prank, what North Korea did to him is reprehensible. My heart goes out to his loving parents. The outcome is very sad.

IMO whatever we give to that regime should stop immediately. I am sorry the people of North Korea are starving. It is not our fault and has nothing to do with any aid we give them. We give or don´t give, the people will starve while the weapons arsenal grows.

There are no words sufficient for me to express my utter contempt for the Communist regime in North Korea. If ever there was a regime deserving of a master stroke of leadership decapitation this is it. Where in God´s name is the CIA and the Navy Seals? I find it impossible to imagine my government is going to allow this travesty to pass without an incredible counter-stroke. If I were president of the United States I would move Heaven and Earth to take out the leadership of North Korea. If we do nothing then God help us!

We should NOT be giving aid to North Korea. The Little Toad running that country simply uses any aid he gets to boost his Military. It´s a shame what happened to this young man. It´s part his fault for going to a country with a Leader who is crazy and partly his Parents fault for allowing (and funding)this trip. I am so sad for the family that they lost this young man because of his curiosity and need to take this foolish trip that never should have happened. It´s not much different than the ´Study Abroad" trips than young College Students are taking through their School. They go to Rome of Paris or London for six weeks for what? The world is on fire over there and these kids have no idea what they´re getting into when they decide to go and party at the Pubs or shop at the Markets. The PARENTS should say no, but they don´t because they want their children to have "the experience". You ask how I know this. It´s because one of my grandchildren has done it and another is ready to leave for Rome in August! Scares me to death!

That´s horrifying. I guess the only solace is they got him back home before his death.
North Korea is a glimpse of ´progressive´ Utopia where the government is in complete control and they brutalize anyone whom they do not like.

Enough. Demand the immediate return of every American held except Rodman, and start liberating prison camps if they don´t comply. We need to eliminate the little fella ASAP and make life as uncomfortable for him in the meantime. Some body and hair doubles may have to be sacrificed.

Severe brain trauma...had he lived, he would not know his name, or anyone around him. The NorKs know this, released him.

They beat him senseless for an inconsequential made up charge. Where is the UN calling for an investigation into human rights violations? Where are the leftists that support communism defending King Yung IL, or whatever his name is? This is a violation I am sure of Geneva Convention on prisoner treatment.. so, what do we do?

Police surprise 4-year-old with SWAT

A 4-year-old boy’s police-themed birthday party was crashed by real-life police officers who responded when they heard the boy’s family was going through a difficult time. Around half a dozen Longview, Texas, police officers showed up Saturday in a SWAT vehicle and police cruisers at the home of Mason Williams, who wants to be a police officer when he grows up. “We took him to our local Christmas parade two years ago and he was obsessed with the police cars’ lights and loud noises and I think that’s when it all began,” Mason’s mom, Katy Williams, told ABC News. “From there it’s just kind of skyrocketed.”

   

 

  


 
Supreme Court revives Trump travel ban
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/26/2017 10:41:05     Post Reply
The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as

Philando Castile’s family
reaches $3M settlement in death

Minneapolis - The mother of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a Minnesota police officer last year, has reached a nearly $3 million settlement in his death, according to an announcement Monday by her attorneys and the Minneapolis suburb that employed the officer. The settlement to be paid to Valerie Castile, who is the trustee for her family in the case, will avoid a federal wrongful death lawsuit stemming from Philando Castile’s death. The 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker was killed by St. Anthony Officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop July 6 after Castile told the officer he was armed.

BMW´s biggest plant in the world is about to get a little bigger. The German automaker said Monday it will add another 1,000 jobs and invest $600 million in the plant as part of a plan to boost annual production to as many 450,000 vehicles annually. "It´s a great day for us here in Spartanburg and South Carolina and for the BMW group," said Harald Kruger, chairman of BMW. "The workforce will be well above 10,000 people which is, in my view, clearly a symbol of success." BMW's facility in Spartanburg is already the company's largest final assembly plant in the world employing more than 9,000 workers and building more than

Abortion protests that invoke ´The
Handmaid´s Tale´ are ridiculous
and, frankly, offensive
Washington Examiner [DC], by Liz Wolfe    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/26/2017 10:05:02     Post Reply
Last week, a group of female protesters dressed as handmaids from the popular show "The Handmaid´s Tale" ventured through the Ohio Statehouse in protest of Senate Bill 145, which would restrict abortion methods. Although protesting often involves hyperbole designed to make a point, this goes too far. Equating the abortion debate to a dystopian show where women are used as incubator slaves is intellectually dishonest––and, frankly, deeply offensive. The bill they were protesting would ban dilation and evacuation procedures, which are exactly what they sound like––the cervix is dilated, and suction is used to get the fetus

Islamic State flag on New Hampshire
dam raises First Amendment questions

When a New Hampshire police chief pulled a homemade Islamic State flag from a wall at a dam this month, it spurred a host of questions about First Amendment rights in the era of terrorism. Pittsfield Police Chief Jeffrey Cain said the black-and-white flag was causing alarm in the community. Chief Cain said he worked with the FBI on the matter but decided there was no crime in posting the flag and there was no evidence of a terrorist plot. “No criminal charges are forthcoming,” he told The Washington Times. Whether the chief was within his rights to pull down the flag, however, has become a thorny legal question.

A senior US Energy Department official appointed by the Trump administration once described Barack Obama as a “Kenyan creampuff”, Mark Zuckerberg as an “arrogant, self-hating Jew” and climate scientists as “cultists” and “nuts”, according to a report. William C Bradford, director of the Department’s Office of Indian Energy, also appeared to believe Mr Obama might refuse to step down after his two terms of office, asking “what will we do? Is a military coup the only answer?” The messages were posted on a since-deleted Twitter account, @Brute_Bradford, The Washington Post revealed. Previously Mr Bradford caused

Snapchat has just launched a new feature that lets other people find out exactly where you are at any given moment. Snap Map lets you share your real-time location, which your friends can view on an interactive map that’s precise enough to show not only which street you’re on, but whereabouts you are on that street too. Since a large number of Snapchat’s users are teenagers, the feature has provoked strong reactions. People are worried about Snap Map’s privacy implications, and believe it could expose children to potential predators.

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder

The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS: "The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

We should have contempt for a regime in Syria that uses poison gas to massacre innocent men, women and children.
