Brownback: U.S. Will ‘Apply Pressure’ Until Turkey Releases Pastor

U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback said this week that the Trump administration would continue to put pressure on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan through sanctions and other means until American citizen and pastor Andrew Brunson is released from house arrest and returned to the United States.

Brownback told Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, on his national radio program Washington Watch Tuesday that the U.S. has tried to gain Brunson’s release through diplomatic efforts but now feels it is necessary to take a tougher stance.

“You haven’t acted, so we will,” is how Brownback described President Donald Trump’s “decisive, aggressive action” against Turkey for holding a U.S. citizen illegally on unproven terrorism charges.

Authorities bulldoze New Mexico jihad compound, leave ammo, paperwork behind

Why did they leave paperwork behind? Might that paperwork be pertinent? Might some of it illuminate the motives and goals of the people in the compound? This is extraordinarily careless. Or is it that authorities want some of this evidence to go away, so as to downplay some aspects of this story and cause them to be forgotten?

This isn’t about conducting more surveillance and doing another stakeout; this is a whitewash and a coverup.

A Turkish court Friday rejected the appeal for release filed by American pastor Andrew Brunson, who is charged with links to terrorism.

The 3rd High Criminal Court in Izmir ordered the continuation of Brunson’s house arrest and ban on leaving the country.

Ismail Cem Halavurt, Brunson’s lawyer, applied to the higher court after the appeal was also rejected by Izmir’s 2nd High Criminal Court on Wednesday.

Recently, the court had allowed Brunson to be moved from jail and placed him under house arrest in view of his “health problems”.

Brunson is charged with spying for the PKK — a designated terrorist group in the U.S. and Turkey — and the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the defeated July 2016 coup attempt in Turkey which martyred 251 people and injured thousands.

Turkey and the U.S. are currently experiencing rocky relations after Washington imposed sanctions on two Turkish Cabinet ministers for not releasing Brunson.

President Donald Trump last week ramped up his attack on Turkey by doubling U.S. tariffs on Turkish aluminum and steel imports.

On Wednesday, in retaliation, Turkey increased tariffs on several U.S.-origin products, including alcohol and tobacco products and cars.

One thought on “Trump is getting tough on Turkey”

  1. Since the Jesuit Coup of 1962-65 (aka Vatican Council II) the hierarchy and organisation of the Roman Catholic Church is a full tilt Communist institution in full collaboration with the wider Communist Revolution in its global totalitarian phase: Globalism / NWO.

    The real Catholic Church ( a whole succession of popes) has placed the Communist ideology [ by name ] and its Revolution under the anathema. Here is an example: “You are aware indeed that the goal of this most iniquitous plot is to drive people to overthrow the entire order of human affairs and to draw them over to the wicked theories of…Communism by confusing them with perverted teachings.” (Encyclical Nostis et Nobiscum, Pope Pius IX, Dec 8 1849)

    These anathemas over Communism and all its organisation and works has never been (can not be, actually) rescinded. These people committed to the creation of hell on earth will, unfortunately get to achieve their final destination unless they decide to do a U-turn.

    As the sign says in the Wizard of Oz: ‘I’d turn back if I were you”.

    So where does this leave Francis…?

    Short answer for the Oz pagans who don’t believe in concepts like hell – it leaves him under the anathemas of Popes Pius IX, Leo XIII, St Pius X, Pius XI. Sad, very sad for him and everyone else he is leading into perdition.
