Bolton: ‘No Money Was Paid’ to North Korea

General April 30, 2019

Bolton: ‘No Money Was Paid’ to North KoreaNational-security adviser John Bolton pushed back Sunday against reports that the U.S. may have paid North Korea $2 million for the medical care of Otto Warmbier.Asked by Fox host Chris Wallace whether any money "however it was disguised" was paid to North Korea, Bolton said no."Absolutely not, and I think that's the key point," he replied. "It's very clear to me from my looking into it in the past few days, no money was paid. That is clear."The former U.S. envoy to the United Nations did however acknowledge that North Korea appears to have asked for reimbursement for Warmbier's medical bills and said State Department envoy Joseph Yun signed a document pledging to pay them."It appears that they did," the national-security adviser said of the dictatorship's request. "This occurred before I came into the administration, but that's my understanding, yes,"Warmier, then a 21-year-old University of Virginia student, was arrested in North Korea in 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from his hotel, and subsequently sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. He was returned to the U.S. in 2017 in a vegetative state and died several days later.Bolton said he "doesn't know the circumstances" of the document the State Department representative signed promising the U.S. would foot Warmbier's medical bills."I think when people leave government sometimes their recollection of things that happened inside tend to be a little bit different from what actually happened," he remarked.President Trump also pushed back on reports about a payment to North Korea."We did not pay money for our great Otto," he told reporters. "There was no money paid. There was a fake news report that money was paid."

  • Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNC

    by on August 22, 2020 - 0 Comments

    Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNCWe now know how much the going rate is for a spot at the Democratic National Convention. Michael Bloomberg spoke for five minutes on Thursday night not long before the nominee itself, a role arguably more prominent than that of Bernie Sanders, the much-abused runner-up.The former New York mayor's remarks were exactly what you would expect. He began by pointing out that he is not a Democrat. He gloated about the vast amounts of money he has given to buy politicians in all parties. He quoted a children's book. He talked about the importance of experts, like the ones he deferred to when he doubled down on the brutal policing tactics that have been the subject of protests across the country. He even said "hell" twice.The best part is that he didn't even have to pay for it. Bloomberg reneged on his promise back in March to keep the thousands of paid staff members who carried him to his towering victory in the 2020 American Samoa Democratic primary onboard until the general election. He has given a whopping $18 million to the party itself and just over $4 million to other grassroots organizations this year. He also offered them some useless free office space during the lockdown.At least President Trump was watching. > After the worst debate performance in the history of politics, Michael Bloomberg, commonly known as Mini Mike, is trying to make a comeback by begging the Democrats for relevance. They treated him like a dog - and always will. Before politics, he said GREAT things about me!> > -- Donald J.
