    Default North Korea releases imprisoned American student; 22-year-old reportedly in coma

    http://www.latimes.com/politics/wash...htmlstory.html



    North Korea on Tuesday released an American student imprisoned there and sentenced to hard labor, the State Department announced.

    The University of Virginia student, Otto Warmbier, had been sentenced to 15 years hard labor after being convicted in Pyongyang for acts against the state.

    Warmbier's announced release came as former basketball star Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea for the latest of his visits to the isolated country. As he traveled, he was asked whether he planned to advocate on behalf of four Americans detained in North Korea, and he said that that was not his "purpose."

    "At the direction of the president, the Department of State has secured the release of Otto Warmbier from North Korea," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement. "Mr. Warmbier is en route to the U.S. where he will be reunited with his family."

    The Washington Post reported from Tokyo that Warmbier was in a coma and being medically evacuated.

    Warmbier, 22, was last seen tearfully begging for mercy in a video on the day of his conviction in March 2016 after an hourlong trial. His alleged offense apparently stemmed from having taken a political poster from a building wall in Pyongyang.

    Propoganda video where he says the CIA and "Diseased state" forced him to steal the sign in an effort to overthrow the PRK. Said he asked his guide where they kept the "important" slogans in the hotel. Then says it was too heavy to steal so he left it. He was detained for "severe crimes".

    You have to admit he is an expert on the subject.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Father says Obama admin told them to stay silent, Trump got their son home.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul
