What about my diplomatic immunity? Jill Kelley’s bizarre 9-1-1 call

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Jill Kelley, a woman at the center of the CIA/FBI/military sex scandal, sure sounds stable! She’s $2 million in debt from throwing parties.  She has a crazy sister who Petraeus has testified was perfectly sane. She  has a guy in the FBI who likes to send her pictures of himself in various poses of undress. Once last thing (for today): She’s a socialite who apparently also is an honorary consul general. All of this is absolutely, totally normal.

CNN reports:

Kelley, it turns out, is an “honorary consul” for the South Korean government, according to the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The official South Korean news agency Yonhap reports that Kelley had “good connections and network and a willingness to develop Korea-U.S. relations, including the free trade agreement between the two nations.”

South Korean officials tell CNN that “an honorary consul can generally play a role of promoting trade and economic cooperation between the two countries.”

In a phone call to authorities to complain about news vans at her Tampa home, Kelley told police: “I am an honorary consul general… I have inviolability. They should not be on my property. I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic, uh, protection involved as well. It’s against the law to cross my property …”.

Actually, it’s probably not. Diplomatic immunity only applies to official diplomat’s while they are abroad and the incident took place in Florida. Plus, she’s not really an official diplomat.

“Now in case you don’t know what inviolability is, I had to think for a second because I believe that goes back to King George…” Glenn joked. “That means that you can’t be molested or disgraced or transgressed or dishonored.”

“Honey, you’ve been dishonored long ago,” Glenn said.

“So she’s got a trespasser on her property.  So obviously that’s against inviolability.  She can’t be violated in that way,” Pat added.

” You know what’s really funny is she was asking, she had somebody on the front porch and she’s seriously asking for diplomatic security,” Glenn said. “From the same group of people?  Really?  That we had a guy who was inside the safe room of the safe house and he was calling and saying, ‘Hey, could I maybe have some security’ and they let him die?  Wow.  She’s got a set on her ‑‑ no, I ‑‑ I’m an honorary.”

“It’s really sad. She’s looking for something that we couldn’t get with an actual ambassador. In an actual dangerous situation, we couldn’t get it.  And she wants it because somebody’s on her porch.  You’re not even an ambassador.”

The conversation then shifted gears into whether people should be suspicious that she hired PR and legal people who had previously been involved with high profile scandals. While Glenn thinks thought it should be a warning sign, Stu said that in his experience having a crisis PR person is just smart, not necessarily something suspicious.

They argued the PR point back and forth on radio:

STU: I’m a little bit hesitant on that one, too, because, you know, we have PR people and I used to ‑‑

GLENN: I’m Glenn Beck.

STU: I know, but I used to react the same way to all those stories. Whenever someone would get in trouble, they hire this, like, crisis person who would come in and, oh, man, they must have really did something.

GLENN: No, no. No, look.

STU: It’s like a person like this isn’t used to controlling a media firestorm that is now a global story.

GLENN: But you ‑‑ within a day you have the attorney that defended Bill Clinton and the Michael Vick crisis PR person? I’m Glenn Beck. I don’t even though who the Michael Vick crisis PR person is. My wife, she’s not going to be ‑‑ if something happened, she would say, “What could we do?” And I’d be like, “I don’t know, maybe we should…” I mean, really? It’s like the day ‑‑ you’re the victim. You’re the victim, right?

STU: Yeah, but I mean, she had to have known this was coming, right? This is not day one of this to her.

GLENN: I’m sorry.

STU: I mean, they’ve been looking at 20,000 pages of e‑mails from her? And like, she had to know this was going on before it came out. So I mean, you know ‑‑

GLENN: If there’s nothing going on, why would you think that?

STU: Because you know an investigation’s going on, right?

GLENN: Who would give you ‑‑ who would give you the indication of anything?

STU: I just think it doesn’t indicate ‑‑ when you’re in a story like this, I no longer believe it indicates guilt to go out and get people of PR in crisis situations.

GLENN: I don’t, either. I don’t, either.

STU: Especially as a regular citizen have no idea how to handle some of this.

GLENN: If it was today, fine. But it was like two days ago. And she’s like, “Really?” We didn’t even know who she was. We didn’t know who she was, and she had these guys.

STU: Right. But she had to know we would know soon, right?

GLENN: She thinks she has diplomatic immunity.

STU: Well, that’s a fair point.

Regardless of her level of involvement with the scandal, this will probably not be the last we hear of the Tampa socialite as the story unfolds.

    This entire fiasco grows more and more with each day, Obama and his media goons are doing all they can to deflect, deny and distort all investigation and attention away from Emperor Caligula Obama and sweep it as deep as they can under the rug.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    (apologies) orginally double posted so another question:

    How far and deep will this mess wind up going: and do you think that Obama will ensure the key Republican leaders, current and upcoming are swept into it as well?

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    So what is the next revelation in the “Petraeus matters” going to be from Obama via the MSM of the leftists?

    Russian spy ring?
    Selling of secrets?

    If she has no money how does she retain her attorneys… and why would they trust her to pay?


    Silly woman — turn on the sprinklers!  That will get them off the lawn.

    • Sunshine Kid

       Well, Helen, that takes two levels of intelligence:  One to realize that sprinklers would get results faster than calling 911, and one to realize that “honorary” means “not really, but we like you”.

  • Sunshine Kid

    Her “diplomatic immunity” is only good overseas, and her diplomatic status is “honorary”, which is not officially sanctioned anyway because it is not bestowed by the US government.

    Just because someone gets an honorary diploma doesn’t mean that they’ve met all the requirements for a real one.

    Sad, puerile and basically pathetic. This whole “reality TV; provincial Jersey Shore” situation is basically pre-menopausal women being involved with successful post-menopausal old men.  It’s a foolish distraction for voyeristic Americans and the media whose taste can not be underestimated and whose grasp of dangerous political reality is detrimentally questionable.

     There’s more to this scandal than meets the eye! Is she a Muslim? Could she be working for Islamic Jihad or Hezbollah?

  • Anonymous

    Okay, let’s ask the key question here — was she the one that gave the “stand down” order?

    ——— oh, that’s right — that is the unaskable question now.  Besides,she has honorary diplomatic immunity, so move along, nothing to see here, except maybe a sex scandal, which always sells.  Ho hum.

    meanwhile, “Remember Benghazi”

    When ever I see this woman in the news, Valerie Jarrett pops into my head. Both are Middle Eastern. Could there be a connection? The entire story sounds like a Jackie Collins novel or the lays of our lives!

    Kelley makes a career of inviting high-level military officers, and other government officials, to big, high-society parties, and foreign countries “solicit” her services to get them big favors from this government, yet she is just an average lady married to an oncologist (something ironic in that, folks) in Florida.  And, for some reason, General Petraeus’ mistress (very intelligent, accomplished author, former military herself; think she’d have known better) feels it is necessary to send threats via email, for unstated reasons, to this person?  Maybe I’ve watched too many suspense movies and tv shows, but it is beginning to look like Ms. Kelly’s “career” just maybe, coulda been, getting important people drunk and getting secrets, and/or secret deals outa them, and selling those secrets and/or deals to the highest bidder(s) on the globe????  Not accusing…. just speculating…. sure would come out like that if this were a Tom Clancy novel!

    Individuals who are accredited as diplomatic staff in the U.S., mostly attached to consulates,

    are issued vehicle license plates by the State Department.

    Their issue is closely monitored, since they may permit access to secure areas.

    The plates used to be a distinctive red, white and blue, with no date tag on them.

    Plates for senior consular officials ONLY, had CD (Corps Diplomatique) identification marks. 

    Very different from Kelley’s vanity license plates, from Florida DMV.

    She does NOT have diplomatic standing.

    What are we peons doing wrong?  Are we going to pay to get her out of hock too?
