Vatican Recalls U.S. Diplomat in Child Porn Investigation

A senior member of the Vatican U.S. embassy staff in Washington was recalled after a request from U.S. prosecutors for him to be charged and tried in a child pornography case, Vatican and U.S. officials said.

The diplomat, a priest, is suspected of possessing, though not producing or disseminating, child pornography, including images of prepubescent children, the Associated Press reported, citing a U.S. source who is familiar with the investigation and speaking on the condition of anonymity.

The Vatican said in a statement on Friday that U.S. State Department notified the Vatican Secretariat of State of “a possible violation of laws relating to child pornography images.”

The Holy See said it recalled the priest in keeping with the practice of sovereign states, and that he is currently in Vatican City. (Read more from “Vatican Recalls U.S. Diplomat in Child Porn Investigation” HERE)

UAF: Impossible That WTC Building 7 Collapsed by Small Fires as Claimed by NIST

The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) was tasked with investigating how World Trade Center 7 fell on 9/11; the findings were live-streamed a few days ago. The team found that WTC 7 did not fall due to fire, contradicting NIST who said the building collapsed from structural damages due to the fire.

The presentation was presented by Dr. Leroy Hulsey. Hulsey spoke about the building, its design, as well as the methods the team used to determine their first of two conclusions. The first part of the experiment is finished; the UAF team found that WTC7 did not collapse due to fire. The next part of the study is to map out the building’s structural system’s response and what would have had to happen in order for it to fall down. The report was published on Thursday on the UAF’s website.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) opened an investigation into the collapses of WTC 1, WTC 2, and WTC 7 in August 2002. NIST released its final report on WTC 7 in 2008, finding that the fires that were ignited by falling debris from WTC 1 caused the collapse of WTC 7. Independent researchers, however, have assembled evidence that has raised profound questions regarding the notion that WTC 7 collapsed because of fire.

The study was backed by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth; the researchers used a virtual model of the building to conduct the investigation.

Last year, Activist Post talked to the Director of Strategy and Development for A&E 9/11 Truth, Ted Walter, who is also in charge of working with the professor and raised the money to fund the WTC 7 Evaluation. Walter previously told Activist Post that “the project began in May 2015 and should wrap up in April of next year.” That deadline was passed but the study should wrap up in October according to the project’s website.

The reported failure was simulated using three-dimensional finite element computer models of the building. The research team studied the building’s response using two finite element programs, ABAQUS and SAP2000 version 18.

Three types of evaluations were performed:

1. the planar response of the structural elements to the fire(s) using wire elements.
2. the building’s response using the NIST’s approach with solid elements; and lastly.
3. the validity of NIST’s findings using solid elements. At the macro-level, progressive collapse, i.e., the structural system’s response to local failures, is being studied using SAP2000 with wire elements, as well as with ABAQUS, and it is near completion.

The study concluded:

“The findings thus far are that fire did not bring down this building. Building failure simulations show that, to match observation, the entire inner core of this building failed nearly simultaneously,” the website for the study noted.

The building’s structural system’s response to local failures is being studied using SAP2000 with wire elements, as well as with ABAQUS, and it is near completion according to the website for the study.

Former U.S. Congressional staffer Susan Lindauer, a CIA asset, has previously said that she was told by her CIA handler Richard Fuisz not to return to New York City in September of 2001 and that it would be ‘far too dangerous’ to do so due to an ‘imminent’ detonation of a miniature thermonuclear device.

Interestingly enough, a peer-reviewed scientific publication identified the presence of nano-thermite in the WTC rubble. One of the critical aspects of that paper has been confirmed by Chemical Engineer Mark Basile.

A draft report of UAF’s current re-evaluation will be “released in October or November 2017 and will be open for public comment for a six-week period, allowing for input from the public and the engineering community with a final report to be published in early 2018,” www.wtc7evaluation.org, noted.

Alaskan Boy Harassed by Animal Rights Activists for Killing Whale to Feed Village

A 16-year old Alaskan boy has been traumatized after receiving death threats and condemnation from ignorant activists for killing a whale to help feed his community.

When 16-year-old Chris Apassingok harpooned a 57-foot bowhead whale back in April to help feed his village, he was roundly praised and hailed as a “provider” and, now, a man, for succeeding in this rite of passage. It was a proud and glorious moment for the young Alaskan native.

Then, unfortunately, the animal rights crowd got wind of Apassingok’s achievement and made his life a living hell.

These ignorant activists bombarded Chris on social media with hate mail, condemnations, abuse and even death threats to the point that it deeply affected the young man.

This could be the story of a young man who proudly and honorably provided for his family and community, or a story of noble subsistence traditions being carried on in a modern world where more and more people are disconnected from nature and their food sources.

Secret Behind Murkowski’s Obamacare Flip-Flop

Sen. John McCain is getting most of the blame from the right and praise from the left for his vote to scuttle Senate legislation to repeal parts of Obamacare, but another GOP member is coming under fire for reneging on her vow to repeal the law and offering a weak explanation for her reversal.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, campaigned twice on ditching Obamacare and even voted for the straight repeal in 2015, when the bill was vetoed by President Obama . . .

After seven years of railing against Obamacare, why did Murkowski end up as a deciding vote to save it?

“Number one, she’s a big-government leftist. Anything that grows government, grows federal control, she’s for,” said Joe Miller, who ran against Murkowski in 2010 and 2016.

“Most Alaskans that have political contact remember what she did in 2010. She actually called me out and said I was a liar about her position on Obamacare because we had a YouTube clip of her waffling statements on Obamacare. We said, ‘Look, this gal isn’t really for full repeal,’” Miller explained.

Alaska Town’s Entire Police Force Quits

The entire police force of Sand Point, Alaska quit in July in a matter of just three weeks, leaving the town without any authoritative presence, and the transition has been smooth without any type of state enforcement agent.

Sand Point, an Alaskan island town with a population of about 1,000, had a police force of three officers and a police chief mid-July.

That’s when the officers, two of whom were a married couple, began to quit one after the other and then finally the police chief himself resigned.

City Administrator Andrew Varner said that the first officer wanted to be closer to a spouse who is in the military. A week later, two more officers, a married couple, left because of a “family decision.”

That left Sand Point police chief, Roger Bacon, who then decided to take a long-planned month-long vacation to Scotland. This decision cost him his job as a “mutual understanding” was reached between Bacon and the city council that if he left he wouldn’t be returning to his post.

“There was sort of a mutual understanding that if he left to go for a month-long journey — leaving the community with no law enforcement — that if he came back, he would not be an employee of the city,” Varner said. “Within a day or two, he had turned in his resignation.”

On July 20, the city of Sand Point released a press release calling for calm, stating that while the police department was “in transition,” citizens should “rest assured that the community will not be in a lawless state.”

Since the departure of the police force, the town has been calm. No more arrests and charges for fishing without a license, speeding down a public road or any of the other outrageous things that police across the nation try to enforce in the name of the state against the private individual citizen.

There was no Purge–like behavior, people weren’t killing each other without the police as is depicted in movies as propaganda for justifying the need for authoritative structure.

“Sand Point did not devolve into mass lawlessness,” Varner said.

“It’s not like the movie ‘The Purge,’ “in which all criminal activity becomes legal for a 12-hour period,” Alaskan State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters.

“Everyone was busy fishing, which was great,” Austin Roof, the general manager of the local public radio station KSDP 830 AM said.

Unfortunately, the paradise of not being harassed by state storm troopers won’t last long for the citizens of Sand Point.

The town has since chosen a new interim police chief, Hal Henning, the former police chief of Seldovia, Varner said.

Additionally, Sand Point will be further patrolled by Alaska State Troopers until they rebuild their armada. (For more from the author of “Alaska Town’s Entire Police Force Quits” please click HERE)

Murkowski Refuses to Explain Why She Campaigned on Obamacare Repeal but Voted Against It

Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski refused to explain why she voted against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act when she previously supported similar proposals in her campaigns.

Following the failed “skinny repeal late Thursday night, Murkowski, one of the three Republican senators who voted against it, told The Daily Caller she was not ready to respond to why she campaigned on repealing Obamacare in her last election but reversed her position on the matter recently.

“I am really very tired and so you’re asking for a really thoughtful response and I actually appreciate your question but rather than respond to each and individual request with all of these cameras around me, I’m gonna take a pass,” she said . . .

Murkowski, who was first appointed to the Senate by her father Frank Murkowski, who previously occupied the seat and ran for governor, to finish out his term in 2002 later ran for to complete a full term and won in 2004.

However, when she ran for a second term, she lost the Republican nomination to tea party favorite Joe Miller in 2010. Murkowski managed to defeat Miller as running as a write-in candidate. Although she has won three terms in office, Murkowski has never won a majority of voters in her state.

Utah Man Killed Wife on Alaska Cruise Because ‘She Would Not Stop Laughing’ at Him

A Utah man who was discovered with his dead wife in their blood-splattered cabin aboard an Alaska cruise ship Tuesday night told an acquaintance he killed her because “she wouldn’t stop laughing” at him, the FBI revealed in a criminal complaint on Thursday.

Kenneth Manzanares, 39, was charged with murder in the death of his wife Kristy Manzanares, FOX13 reported. An acquaintance came into the cabin and found Manzanares’ hands and clothes as well as the walls of the cabin covered in blood, the FBI said.

“She would not stop laughing at me,” Manzanares allegedly told the acquaintance.

It’s unclear what caused the woman’s death, but she was discovered with a severe head wound. Her body was found on the cabin floor covered in blood, court documents stated. (Read more from “Utah Man Killed Wife on Alaska Cruise Because ‘She Would Not Stop Laughing’ at Him” HERE)

Trump Says Lisa Murkowski ‘Really Let America Down’

President Donald Trump chastised Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R.-Alaska, Wednesday for two votes she cast Tuesday associated with health care reform legislation, asserting that she let down Republicans and “our country.”

“Senator @lisamurkowski of the Great State of Alaska really let the Republicans, and our country, down yesterday. Too bad!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Murkowski and one other Republican senator, Susan Collins of Maine, were the only GOP senators to vote with Democrats against a procedural measure to begin debate on the GOP’s proposed health care legislation.

Eight other Republicans joined Murkowski in a later vote against an amendment that would have repealed and replaced portions of Obamacare.

Republicans are utilizing a process known as reconciliation in their attempt to pass health care reform legislation, which allows most amendments to pass with only 50 votes.

However, the amendment Murkowski voted against Tuesday night required 60 votes since portions of it have not yet been scored by the Congressional Budget Office.

In response to Trump’s criticism, Murkowski said Wednesday that she is not concerned about the president damaging her prospects for reelection.

“Quite honestly, I don’t think it’s wise to be operating on a daily basis thinking about what, a statement or a response, that causes you to be fearful of your electoral prospects,” Murkowski said.

“We’re here to govern. We’re here to legislate. We’re here to represent the people that sent us here,” she added.

The Alaska Republican suggested that politicians should concern themselves with governing instead of always worrying about their reelection chances.

“Every day shouldn’t be about winning elections,” she said.

“How about just doing a little bit of governing around here? That’s what I’m here for.”

The Senate will consider other health care-related amendments prior to its August recess. (For more from the author of “Trump Says Lisa Murkowski ‘Really Let America Down'” please click HERE)
