While Hollywood Pervs Bask in the Spotlight, Media Oddly Silent About Rampant Sex Abuse by Police (Videos)

Uncategorized

by N.Morgan

The victims of the Hollywood sex abuse scandals are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and may get the justice they’ve long deserved.

However, a negative consequence of those scandals surfacing, as the “Weinsteins and the Spaceys” watch their careers crash and burn over the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, other sex abuse crimes are being virtually ignored by mainstream media, sexual misconduct that is being perpetrated by police officers.

Nearly on a daily basis a cop or former cop’s face makes the local newspaper with obscure headlines like Former Deputy Now Charged with Exploitation.

There is hardly any attention is given to these stories despite the horrifying nature of the crimes alleged.

For example, the aforementioned headline is from a small Minnesota town and involves a deputy who was arrested on multiple felony charges including child molestation, sexual misconduct with a child, and child exploitation.

No other media outlets picked up the story and the disgusting crimes that led to these headlines happen far more frequently than reported.

Ealier this month, two NYPD cops crimes were so bad that they actually made national headlines when they were arrested for allegedly handcuffing an underage teen and brutally raping her in their van.

While Chambers and her mother were at the hospital, nine officers showed up to intimidate them into remaining silent about the violent assault.

“They came with nine cops to intimidate her and her mom, to discourage them from coming forward and reporting the rape and sex assault,” attorney Michael David, told The Post.

So as the NYPD case garnered much-needed attention, others go completely unnoticed and under reported. Cops sexually abusing children, women, and men is common and is a major problem.

In 2014, TFTP put out a shocking report that highlighted 40 cops who were convicted or charged with spousal abuse, child rape, or other types of sex crimes just thirty days.

Independent researchers began tracking how many people are killed by cops every year, no one was tracking how many crimes were committed by cops. However, that is beginning to change, and the data shows that the problem is staggering.

Last year, a study exposed the shocking fact that police officers are arrested about 1,100 times a year, or roughly three officers charged every day. Many of these arrests are over unspeakable sex crimes.

“Police crimes are not uncommon,” the study’s lead researcher Philip M. Stinson concluded. “Our data directly contradicts some of the prevailing assumptions and the proposition that only a small group of rotten apples perpetrate the vast majority of police crime.

Although nearly 60 percent of the crimes “occurred when the officer was technically off-duty,” Stinson wrote, “a significant portion of these so-called off-duty crimes also lies within the context of police work and the perpetrator’s role as a police officer, including instances where off-duty officers flash a badge, an official weapon, or otherwise use their power, authority, and the respect afforded to them as a means to commit crime.”

A report done by WaPo found that in cases involving allegations of sexual abuse, 72 percent of the officers were fired, and more than 80 percent resulted in convictions, the study found.

There were 422 reported cases of forcible and statutory rape, 352 cases of forcible fondling and 94 sodomy cases over the seven years of the study, which Stinson called “larger than expected based on the existing research.”

The data search turned up 174 examples of male officers arrested in cases of “Driving While Female,” in which women drivers were harassed or assaulted. About 82 percent of those cases ended in convictions.

A separate study as reported by the AP in 2015 found similarly startling numbers.

 

AP’s probe revealed that 550 officers lost their certification status for various sexual assaults, including rape.

Some were dismissed for sodomy or sexual shakedowns, where victims were forced to perform sexual acts to avoid arrest.

Another 440 officers lost their jobs for other sex-related offenses, such as possessing child pornography, being a peeping Tom, sending sexually charged messages to underage teens or having sex while on duty.

About one-third of the officers lost their jobs for committing sexual offenses with juveniles.

In yet another independent study concluded that sexual misconduct is the second highest of all complaints nationwide against police officers, representing 9.3 percent in 2010, according to a study by the Cato Institute’s National Police Misconduct Reporting Project.

In 2010, 354 of the 618 complaints involved nonconsensual sexual acts, and over half of those involved were minors.

Perhaps the most chilling aspect of police sexual misconduct is the likelihood of the media remaining silence on the crimes.

As in the case of the NYPD cops intimidating the rape victim shows, police officers stand up for their own—even if it means protecting a rapist.

When a person becomes a victim of police sex crimes, how can they be expected to go to the very people who employ their abuser and report it — especially given the fact that it is well known police will go to great lengths to protect their own.

“It’s happening probably in every law enforcement agency across the country,” said Chief Bernadette DiPino of the Sarasota Police Department in Florida, who helped study the problem for the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

“It’s so underreported and people are scared that if they call and complain about a police officer, they think every other police officer is going to be then out to get them.”

While it is certainly newsworthy to expose Hollywood pedophiles and sex abusers for preying on vulnerable actors and actresses, the level at which police sexual misconduct is ignored by the media is shameful.

Has the stranglehold of the Police State gotten so tight that it is considered treacherous to even mention the staggering rate at which police commit sex crimes against the citizenry?

Has the Blue Line become an invisible monster that no longer represents justice, but conceals the very predators they swore to protect us from?

Yet Another Proof the Feds Don’t Want You Well

Uncategorized

Guest Post by Christopher Watson

For the second time in as many years, your friendly neighborhood federal government is pushing to criminalize the use of kratom, a natural botanical supplement from the coffee family that patients have used for years to manage pain, opioid withdrawal symptoms, and depression.  But they’re just doing this because they care about you.

 This time around, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published an advisory stating certain dangers the coffee-like herb poses. In response, the American Kratom Association has initiated a formal dispute resolution petition, calling on activists and Kratom users to mobilize once again to testify about the medical benefits of Kratom, as well as the mischaracterizations from the FDA.

The initial ban proposal the DEA made in August of 2016 shocked the Kratom community, which is comprised of a wide spectrum of patients who need medical care for various conditions, including arthritis, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, opioid withdrawal, PTSD and others. Nearly all of them have found major relief from their symptoms through Kratom with minimal to no side effects. If Kratom were banned, many of them would be forced to resort to prescription pills or live in pain.

Teen Girls and Boys Are Now Sacrificial Virgins: How the HPV Vaccine Has Destroyed Young Lives (Full Documentary)

Uncategorized

by N.Morgan

Sacrificial Virgins is a 3 part documentary series written and narrated by Joan Shenton and directed by Andi Reiss, about the HPV vaccine.

The film alleges that the HPV vaccine, currently one of the most heavily pushed and popular vaccines, is also one of the worst offenders when it comes to adverse reactions, on a different scale of any other mass-administered vaccine.

Pictured above: Chloe Leanne Brookes became ill after her second injection, has suffered a form of paralysis and is now unable to eat and wholly dependent on intravenous fluids, medications and her mother’s care.

Sacrificial Virgins: Part I – Not for the greater good

The leading HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix are widely administered, often freely in schools or through national immunization programs.

This, despite the fact that UK government records show that from 2008-2014, reports of adverse events attributed to the HPV vaccine far exceeded reports for any other vaccine, including those on the most common mass vaccination programmes.

In fact, by April 2017, there were almost 9,000 reports of adverse reactions, including more than 3,000 “serious” reports. No other vaccine comes close.

The number of studies that show that partial immunization via available HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines is not only insufficient at reducing overall HPV infection rates; the vaccines actually cause rarer, more lethal types of HPV to sweep in and the net effect could be devastating increases in HPV-related cancers.

The first study is Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) own study, in which they show no net change in HPV infection rate (considering all types) after HPV vaccines were introduced into medical practice:

Markowitz LE et al., 2016 Prevalence of HPV After Introduction of the Vaccination Program in the United States. Pediatrics. 2016 Feb 22. pii: peds.2015-1968.

That study concluded that type replacement did not occur because their univariate analysis of individual types showed no individual type with a significant increase. 

However, because the vaccines do clear the vaccine-targeted types, the lack of change in overall infection rate shows that type replacement must be occurring.

The second study is by Fisher et al. (2016), which specifically found that high-risk HPV types replaced the vaccine-targeted types.  They wrote:

“the percentage of non-vaccine HR-HPV types was higher than expected, considering that eight HPV types formerly classified as ‘low-risk’ or ‘probably high-risk’ are in fact HR-HPV types.”

Fischer et al 2016: Shift in prevalence of HPV types in cervical cytology specimens in the era of HPV vaccination. Oncol Lett. 12(1):601-610.

A third study is that by Guo et al., (2015) that also clearly found evidence of type replacement occurring as a result of HPV vaccination:

“The prevalence of high-risk nonvaccine types was higher among vaccinated women than unvaccinated women (52.1% vs 40.4%, prevalence ratio 1.29, 95% CI 1.06–1.57), but this difference was attenuated after adjusting for sexual behavior variables (adjusted prevalence ratio 1.19, 95% CI 0.99–1.43).

HPV vaccination was effective against all 4 vaccine types in young women vaccinated after age 12. However, vaccinated women had a higher prevalence of high-risk non vaccine types, suggesting that they may benefit from newer vaccines covering additional types.”

Sacrificial Virgins: Part II – Pain and suffering

The HPV vaccine is a treatment in widespread use but its efficacy in preventing cancer is medically unproven, while unintended, adverse reactions are blighting and even ending the lives of girls and young women across the world.

However, pharmaceutical manufacturers and many health authorities are refusing to acknowledge there is a problem and the medical community is continuing to offer the vaccine.

New Evidence Shows the Sugar Industry Suppressed Scientific Research That Linked Sugar to Heart Disease and Bladder Cancer in Rats (Video)

Uncategorized

By N.Morgan

New evidence exposes that the sugar industry suppressed scientific research that linked sugar to heart disease and bladder cancer in rats.

The Sugar Research Foundation, the group funding the studies, cut the project short and didn’t publish the results.

Nutritionists caution that sugar, not fat, is largely to blame for many of the problems in our modern diets.

For several decades, sugar lobbyists have been taking aim at studies linking sugar and cancer and doing anything they could to discredit the truth.

When a study last year found that mice on sugar-heavy diets were more likely to develop breast cancer, the Sugar Association, one of the biggest sugar lobbying groups in the US, called it “sensationalised.”

The group insists that “no credible link between ingested sugars and cancer has been established.”

However doctors and researchers claim the sugar industry may have been intentionally keeping research about that link from getting published.

A new study in the journal PLOS Biology reveals how the Sugar Association worked to suppress scientific findings on the harmful effects of table sugar on rodents nearly 50 years ago.

The report details the results of two unpublished studies, known as Project 259, which were funded by the sugar lobby in the late 1960s. Both involved research on the effects of feeding sugar to rats.

In the first study, one group of rats was fed a balanced diet of cereal, beans, fish and yeast, while the other rats were given a high-sugar diet.

The researchers found that the sugar eaters test group were at greater risk for strokes, heart attacks and heart disease, and had higher-than-normal levels of fat (triglycerides) in their blood.

The second study compared sugar-fed rats with starch-fed rats and found that the sugar-eating rodents were more likely to have elevated levels of an enzyme associated with bladder cancer in humans.

None of that rodent research saw the light of day, though. The Sugar Research Foundation cut Project 259 short and didn’t publish any of the results.

“Our study contributes to a wider body of literature documenting industry manipulation of science,” the researchers, who hail from the University of California San Francisco, wrote in their report.

In a statement, the Sugar Association denied that allegation, saying the new study is just “a collection of speculations and assumptions about events that happened nearly five decades ago, conducted by a group of researchers and funded by individuals and organisations that are known critics of the sugar industry.”

“We reviewed our research archives and found documentation that the study in question ended for three reasons, none of which involved potential research findings: the study was significantly delayed; it was consequently over budget; and the delay overlapped with an organizational restructuring,” the group said.

But this is not the first time we’ve learned that ‘big sugar’ has gotten in the way of science.

Last year, some of the same researchers found that the Sugar Research Foundation – the former name of the Sugar Association – paid off three Harvard scientist in 1967 to make sugar seem less unhealthy and suggest that fat was the problem in our diets instead.

“The kind of manipulation of research is similar to what the tobacco industry does,” study co-author Stanton Glantz said in a release.

Decades of research on sugar since Project 259 have linked sugar consumption to a glut of serious health problems, including high cholesterolheart disease, and kidney diseaseto name a few.

Recent research also demonstrates that sugar may play a role in tumour growth, but scientists don’t think it makes cancer grow faster, and still aren’t certain whether sugar consumption has any link to cancer formation.

After years of fuelling up on high-sugar, low fat foods, consumers are finally becoming wise to the problems with sugar that were hidden for so many years.

The US Food and Drug Administration is, too – by 2021, all nutrition labels will have to include the per cent daily value of added sugars for the first time, while the “calories from fat” column will get scrubbed.

Flint’s Water Contamination Is Minor-League Compared to the Rest of the US, Study Reveals (Videos)

Uncategorized

 

By N. Morgan

A recent CDC investigation discovered that Flint, Michigan ranks nowhere near the top when it comes to lead in the water, thousands of areas are far worse.

For years there has been a heated and ongoing debate about the levels of lead that have been found in the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, however this current study concluded that water conditions are just as contaminated in many other areas throughout the country.

Reuters recently published neighborhood-level blood lead testing results from 34 states, as well as Washington DC, which were collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The results uncovered that 3,810 neighborhood areas have levels of lead that are at least double those seen in Flint. Close to half of these sites had levels that were actually four times as high as those in Flint.

The areas of Pennsylvania, New York, Baltimore and parts of Ohio were shown to suffer the more severe affects of contamination.

Researchers noted that areas which were heavily industrialized before lead was recognized as a problem have become hotspots for contamination.

A color-coded map identifying many of these hotspots was published with the report, showing some of the highest levels of contamination in Savannah, Georgia; Brooklyn, New York; and even as far north as Rutland, Vermont.

Map of lead concentrations in the United States

The results also revealed that despite the fact that Flint had become the face of lead contamination in America, it doesn’t even rank among the most toxic water supplies in the country.

Far from being a localized problem, it seems that water supplies throughout the entire country could be compromised.

In 2013, prior to the Flint controversy, The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the nation’s water infrastructure a “D+” on their Report Card for America’s Infrastructure in 2013.

It is estimated that the much-needed overhaul of the country’s water infrastructure could cost well over $1 trillion.

“Restoring existing water systems as they reach the end of their useful lives and expanding them to serve a growing population will cost at least $1 trillion over the next 25 years,” a 2012 American Water Works Association (AWWA) report concluded.

Despite their desperate need, residents of Flint are still waiting on drinkable water, so it does not seem likely that any of these other areas will see help anytime soon.

Just this week it was reported that Flint is still in negotiations for a long-term water contract while the city’s residents are still waiting on clean drinking water.

Outspoken environmental activist Erin Brockovich predicted this scenario would begin to unfold as more research was conducted. Brockovich is best known for building a case against the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) of California in 1993.

Since then she has been a world-renowned environmental activist and has even had a movie made about her activism, starring Julia Roberts.

Speaking in an interview last year, Brockovich said, “I can tell you that Flint, Michigan is the tip of the iceberg. I can tell you for certain that this is a national crisis that we are not getting ready to face. The crisis is already here. Even since Flint has hit the national stage, we’ve found out that Sebring, Ohio has the same problem …

The same thing is happening in Louisiana, and we’re just now hearing rumors—I haven’t verified it before I came out—we’re having the same situation in Wisconsin.”

Erin Brockovich Explains The Flint Water Crisis

Lead contamination has become less of a widespread problem over the decades as it has been removed from products like paint and gasoline, but sadly the pipes that local and state governments are responsible for have not been updated to rid the water supply of toxic lead levels.

Evil Rothschilds Exposed Thanks to Russian TV (Videos)

Politics, Power Elite, Rothschild

by N. Morgan

One of the richest and most sinister elitist families in the world is being exposed by mainstream Russian television.

The infamous Rothschilds, known as one of the richest and most powerful families in the world are now being scrutinized by Russia, with the hope of revealing the corruption that has poisoned geopolitics, like a thriving cancer.

Rumors surrounding the Rothschild’s connection with the ‘New World Order’ have circulated for years and the fact that they are connected to so many different governments means their conflict of interests cannot be ignored.

The Rothschilds’ power in the world governments can also no longer be denied or dismissed as a conspiracy.

One such rumor is that Putin is said to be ‘readying’ his people to oppose the world order that has been set out by the Powers that Be, who control nearly all of the worlds government, banks, religion, education, and the majority of the world’s the media.

According to Putin“If the powers that be today find some standard or norm to their advantage, they force everyone else to comply. But if tomorrow these same standards get in their way, they are swift to throw them in the bin, declare them obsolete, and set or try to set new rules.” 

Putin Tells Everyone Exactly Who Created NWO

A quote from Zero Hedge:

“Putin is readying his people to divorce from the international banking system altogether, and start over with a nationalistic platform, backed by thousands of tons of gold, and growing alliances with Europe, China and the BRICS nations, the Middle East and several emerging powers.”

Russia’s burning desire for independence from the rest of the world has emerged under the Putin regime and has manifested itself in several different ways.

Russian TV on the Rothschilds

It has been reported by a Russia Insider that Russians are even gearing up to set up a independent banking system that will give them complete freedom from the rest of the worlds banks, a bold and unusual move in today’s economy.

The Rothschild’s are famous for their ownership of banking systems and controlling the money in many different countries around the world.

It appears that the Russian are aiming to distance themselves from this corrupt system that has ruled the world’s money for far too many years

The Russian government shows signs of being far more advanced in their understanding of the New World Order than their global counterparts.

American presidents have even warned of the insidious dangers of secret governments.

President Theodore Roosevelt said that “behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” 

President John Kennedy also warned of secret societies and many believe it cost him his life exposing the cloaked government and the entities that pull the strings.

JFK Secret Societies Speech (full version)

Should the rest of the world follow the Russian example and work towards becoming financially independent and break free of the hidden chains inflicted by these mancing forces?

Teaching Millennials to think

Uncategorized

Adam J. MacLeod is an associate professor of law at Jones School of Law at Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama. He writes at NewBostonPost,

I teach in a law school. For several years now my students have been mostly Millennials. Contrary to stereotype, I have found that the vast majority of them want to learn. But true to stereotype, I increasingly find that most of them cannot think, don’t know very much, and are enslaved to their appetites and feelings. Their minds are held hostage in a prison fashioned by elite culture and their undergraduate professors.

They cannot learn until their minds are freed from that prison. This year in my Foundations of Law course for first-year law students, I found my students especially impervious to the ancient wisdom of foundational texts, such as Plato’s Crito and the Code of Hammurabi. Many of them were quick to dismiss unfamiliar ideas as “classist” and “racist,” and thus unable to engage with those ideas on the merits. So, a couple of weeks into the semester, I decided to lay down some ground rules. I gave them these rules just before beginning our annual unit on legal reasoning.
Here is the speech I gave them.
********************************
Before I can teach you how to reason, I must first teach you how to rid yourself of unreason. For many of you have not yet been educated. You have been dis-educated. To put it bluntly, you have been indoctrinated. Before you learn how to think you must first learn how to stop unthinking.

Reasoning requires you to understand truth claims, even truth claims that you think are false or bad or just icky. Most of you have been taught to label things with various “isms” which prevent you from understanding claims you find uncomfortable or difficult.

Reasoning requires correct judgment. Judgment involves making distinctions, discriminating. Most of you have been taught how to avoid critical, evaluative judgments by appealing to simplistic terms such as “diversity” and “equality.”

Reasoning requires you to understand the difference between true and false. And reasoning requires coherence and logic. Most of you have been taught to embrace incoherence and illogic. You have learned to associate truth with your subjective feelings, which are neither true nor false but only yours, and which are constantly changeful.

We will have to pull out all of the weeds in your mind as we come across them. Unfortunately, your mind is full of weeds, and this will be a very painful experience. But it is strictly necessary if anything useful, good, and fruitful is to be planted in your head.

There is no formula for this. Each of you has different weeds, and so we will need to take this on the case-by-case basis. But there are a few weeds that infect nearly all of your brains. So I am going to pull them out now.

First, except when describing an ideology, you are not to use a word that ends in “ism.” Communism, socialism, Nazism, and capitalism are established concepts in history and the social sciences, and those terms can often be used fruitfully to gain knowledge and promote understanding. “Classism,” “sexism,” “materialism,” “cisgenderism,” and (yes) even racism are generally not used as meaningful or productive terms, at least as you have been taught to use them. Most of the time, they do not promote understanding.
In fact, “isms” prevent you from learning. You have been taught to slap an “ism” on things that you do not understand, or that make you feel uncomfortable, or that make you uncomfortable because you do not understand them. But slapping a label on the box without first opening the box and examining its contents is a form of cheating. Worse, it prevents you from discovering the treasures hidden inside the box. For example, when we discussed the Code of Hammurabi, some of you wanted to slap labels on what you read which enabled you to convince yourself that you had nothing to learn from ancient Babylonians. But when we peeled off the labels and looked carefully inside the box, we discovered several surprising truths. In fact, we discovered that Hammurabi still has a lot to teach us today.

One of the falsehoods that has been stuffed into your brain and pounded into place is that moral knowledge progresses inevitably, such that later generations are morally and intellectually superior to earlier generations, and that the older the source the more morally suspect that source is. There is a term for that. It is called chronological snobbery. Or, to use a term that you might understand more easily, “ageism.”

Second, you have been taught to resort to two moral values above all others, diversity and equality. These are important values if properly understood. But the way most of you have been taught to understand them makes you irrational, unreasoning. For you have been taught that we must have as much diversity as possible and that equality means that everyone must be made equal. But equal simply means the same. To say that 2+2 equals 4 is to say that 2+2 is numerically the same as four. And diversity simply means difference. So when you say that we should have diversity and equality you are saying we should have difference and sameness. That is incoherent, by itself. Two things cannot be different and the same at the same time in the same way.

Furthermore, diversity and equality are not the most important values. In fact, neither diversity nor equality is valuable at all in its own right. Some diversity is bad. For example, if slavery is inherently wrong, as I suspect we all think it is, then a diversity of views about the morality of slavery is worse than complete agreement that slavery is wrong.

Similarly, equality is not to be desired for its own sake. Nobody is equal in all respects. We are all different, which is to say that we are all not the same, which is to say that we are unequal in many ways. And that is generally a good thing. But it is not always a good thing (see the previous remarks about diversity).

Related to this: You do you not know what the word “fair” means. It does not just mean equality. Nor does it mean something you do not like. For now, you will have to take my word for this. But we will examine fairness from time to time throughout this semester.

Third, you should not bother to tell us how you feel about a topic. Tell us what you think about it. If you can’t think yet, that’s O.K.. Tell us what Aristotle thinks, or Hammurabi thinks, or H.L.A. Hart thinks. Borrow opinions from those whose opinions are worth considering. As Aristotle teaches us in the reading for today, men and women who are enslaved to the passions, who never rise above their animal natures by practicing the virtues, do not have worthwhile opinions. Only the person who exercises practical reason and attains practical wisdom knows how first to live his life, then to order his household, and finally, when he is sufficiently wise and mature, to venture opinions on how to bring order to the political community.

One of my goals for you this semester is that each of you will encounter at least one idea that you find disagreeable and that you will achieve genuine disagreement with that idea. I need to explain what I mean by that because many of you have never been taught how to disagree.

Disagreement is not expressing one’s disapproval of something or expressing that something makes you feel bad or icky. To really disagree with someone’s idea or opinion, you must first understand that idea or opinion. When Socrates tells you that a good life is better than a life in exile you can neither agree nor disagree with that claim without first understanding what he means by “good life” and why he thinks running away from Athens would be unjust. Similarly, if someone expresses a view about abortion, and you do not first take the time to understand what the view is and why the person thinks the view is true, then you cannot disagree with the view, much less reason with that person. You might take offense. You might feel bad that someone holds that view. But you are not reasoning unless you are engaging the merits of the argument, just as Socrates engaged with Crito’s argument that he should flee from Athens.
So, here are three ground rules for the rest of the semester.

1. The only “ism” I ever want to come out your mouth is a syllogism. If I catch you using an “ism” or its analogous “ist” — racist, classist, etc. — then you will not be permitted to continue speaking until you have first identified which “ism” you are guilty of at that very moment. You are not allowed to fault others for being biased or privileged until you have first identified and examined your own biases and privileges.

2. If I catch you this semester using the words “fair,” “diversity,” or “equality,” or a variation on those terms, and you do not stop immediately to explain what you mean, you will lose your privilege to express any further opinions in class until you first demonstrate that you understand three things about the view that you are criticizing.

3. If you ever begin a statement with the words “I feel,” before continuing you must cluck like a chicken or make some other suitable animal sound.
********************************
To their credit, the students received the speech well. And so far this semester, only two students have been required to cluck like chickens.

Since the allegations against Harvey Weinstein have surfaced, people are now finally discussing the horrific crimes of sexual assault and pedophilia.

These topics have often been glossed over or ignored entirely due to the discomfort people feel about such ugly and painful subjects.

Corey Feldman has recently come forward and exposed the rampant pedophilia that plagues Hollywood and was one of the most guarded secrets among the rich and famous.

Now it’s time to face this evil head on and expose the predators among us.

Dr. Anna Salter has been at the forefront of fighting and exposing these crimes and has studied the predators face to face in shocking and often graphic interviews.

Dr. Salter is a world renowned psychologist and author, who has treated thousands of children and adults who were victimized by sexual predators.

Her books and videos have been pivital in unmasking the inner workings of the monsters who prey on the innocent.

Dr. Salter is the 1997 winner of the Significant Achievement Award from the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers.

The videos below give an inside glimpse into the mind of these very sick and twisted individuals who feed off of the pain of their vicitms and offers tips on how to protect yourself and your children from becoming a victim.

Cruel Monster Sealed Pet Dog in a Bag and Left Her in the Middle of a Field to Die (Video)

Animals, Dogs

(N.Morgan) Anyone who is capable of hurting/abusing an animal is a special kind of monster, who deserves to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

This is Misty’s story and how this precious girl was zipped up in a duffle bag and left in the middle of a hunting field in Fort Winnebago to die wounded and alone.

A sheriff driving by the field noticed the bag and found a very sick and wounded dog trapped inside of the bag.

The wonderful and compassionate people at the Columbia County Humane Society and the Portage Veterinary Clinic are now caring for the poor dog.

The shelter workers soon discovered that, despite her wounds and obvious abuse, Misty was a very sweet and gentle girl who was desperate for love and affection.

Watch Misty’s story in the video below.

November 4th: EMP Drill Announced by Department of Defense (Video)

Politics
Antifa is short for anti-fascists. The term is used to define a broad group of people whose political beliefs lean toward the left — often the far left — but do not conform with the Democratic Party platform. The group doesn’t have an official leader or headquarters, although groups in certain states hold regular meetings.
Antifa positions can be hard to define, but many members support oppressed populations and protest the amassing of wealth by corporations and elites. Some employ radical or militant tactics to get their message across.
Scott Crow, a former Antifa organizer, says the “radical ideals” promoted by Antifas are starting to be adopted by liberals. “They would never have looked at (those ideals) before, because they saw us as the enemy as much as the right-wingers.”
An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is an intense burst of electromagnetic (EM) energy caused by an abrupt, rapid acceleration of charged particles, usually electron s. An EMP can contain energy components over a large part of the EM spectrum , from very-low-frequency ( VLF ) radio to ultraviolet ( UV ) wavelengths.
