“The vice president will essentially call out Iran for their actions. He will give a message to those groups that are there, that, you know, if you stand with us, we’ll stand with you,” a White House official said.
Conservative Christian and expressionless piece of furniture man Mike Pence, who is currently the Vice President of the Trump Administration, plans to visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp site on Friday, and tour a memorial to Jewish detainees who were murdered there by Nazis in occupied Poland.
Pence's European trip will focus on Donald Trump/John Bolton's idea that Iran is the source of all Middle East turmoil.
From the Washington Post, recapping a White House press briefing held today:
Pence will tour the site in southern Poland, with Polish President Andrzej Duda, a senior White House official said Monday. It will be Pence’s first visit to the infamous prison camp operated by Nazi Germany during World War II. Portions of the camp where an estimated 1.1 million people died are preserved as a museum and memorial.
Pence will be in Poland this week for a joint U.S.-Poland conference on Middle East peace and security. He also will hold defense meetings in Poland as the Pentagon considers a potential permanent base for U.S. forces in the country.
Pence, a conservative Christian, is among the Trump administration’s strongest supporters of Israel. He plans to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when both are in Warsaw for the Mideast conference.
Pence and Netanyahu will tour a memorial to the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising, in which Jewish residents resisted Nazi efforts to deport remaining inhabitants. Nazis crushed the uprising after about a month, and Jews were deported.

Moments before this historical event, he was calmly joking around with the TV crew as if this was just any other presser. And then…. “…I have felt it was my duty to persevere, to make every possible effort to complete […]
President Donald Trump thinks this photo, of House Leader Nancy Pelosi berating him over his abandonment of America’s Kurdish allies, will make her look bad. The BBC quotes Republican “leaders” as saying Pelosi—apparently one of two women at the table and five in the room—was behaving in an “unbecoming” manner. Pelosi set the photograph as […]
After greenlighting Turkey’s invasion of Kurdish-held Syria by evacuating U.S. troops, Trump realized Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was making a fool of him and sent a bizarre letter his way. The letter promised to destroy the Turkish economy, saying “Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!” and “Lets work out a great […]
We can’t all go through life with just a pair of sneakers and flip-flops. Sometimes, you have to invest in a pair of high-quality dress shoes. However, you’ve probably discovered that high-end footwear almost always comes with eye-popping price tags. You’ve got to compromise on second-hand or just suck it up and take out a […]
We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
Remember when the default state of your online presence was anonymity? That’s not so clear-cut anymore, and the worst part is you may not even know who is using your data or what they’re using it for. Small wonder that so many people are choosing to surf through virtual private networks. VPNs filter web access […]
