Postal worker rescues teen who managed
to escape hands of sex traffickers
SACRAMENTO, CA – A California teenager had the opportunity to reunite with her unlikely hero — the postal worker who saved her from sex trafficking.
Sixteen-year-old Crystal Allen gave postal worker Ivan Crisostomo a warm hug when she saw him Thursday, but the first time they met, Allen feared for her life.
Allen’s mother Stacy Ohman said her daughter met a “friend” who had lured her to Sacramento, where she found herself trapped in a world of drugs and sex trafficking.
“I was kidnapped, and held captive, and abused and stuff,” Allen said.
One day, she found the opportunity to escape. Allen was inside her captors’ car in Sacramento’s Oak Park neighborhood when she heard them discussing a crime. She then jumped out of a car, grabbed one of their phones and ran for her life.
That’s when Crisostomo found her.
“I heard this crying when I came out of the vehicle, so I approached her and I asked her. She was afraid, she didn’t want to talk,” he said.
Eventually, he convinced the terrified teen to call her mother.
“She was frantic. I didn’t know what was going on,” Ohman said. “I couldn’t even understand her she was so upset and that’s when I told her she had to reach out to someone for safety and she gave the phone to Ivan and he instantly kicked into gear and told me that he would save my daughter.”
Crisostomo let Allen sit in his postal truck until police arrived on scene.
“He stepped up where a lot of people would have just kept driving down the road. He made a huge positive impact in this young girl’s life,” said Deputy David Cuneo of Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
Crisostomo said he’s just happy Allen is safe.
“The way I see her, she has a wonderful future ahead. She’s doing so well. I’m happy. I’m really happy,” he said.
Gardens cops who saved choking baby at mall are ‘angels,’ mom says
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL – Two Palm Beach Gardens police officers are heroes to a panicked mom whose 14-month-old daughter turned blue while choking on a chicken nugget at The Gardens Mall two weeks ago.
Lucia Graham has been eating solid food — and a lot of it — since she was 9 months old, but on that afternoon, the chicken nugget she was chomping on got wedged in her throat, mom Ana Graham said. The Wellington mother of two could tell right away that something was wrong.
“On her second bite, I noticed she looked at me with her eyes wide open. She started turning red,” she said.
She yanked Lucia from her stroller and patted her on the back like the pediatrician taught her, but to no avail. Lucia started turning blue.
Then, “like angels from heaven,” two Palm Beach Gardens police officers who had been sitting across the food court appeared, she said.
Officer Robert Ayala, who had been assigned to the mall July 21, saw Ana Graham “frantically” get up and go to the stroller minutes after the family sat down. He ran up and grabbed the baby, put her face down on his left hand and struck her upper back with his palm a few times. Then he swept her mouth with his finger.
The stubborn chicken nugget remained stuck until Ayala forcefully patted little Lucia on her back again. That’s when she finally spewed out the mushy nugget.
As the ordeal was unfolding, Officer Rafael Guadalupe immediately got on his radio to call for Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue and talked to Ana Graham to try to keep her calm.
Ayala said he usually likes to walk around the mall so that people see him in uniform as a crime deterrent. He was at the food court only because Guadalupe was there for lunch.
“It was just the right place at the right time,” he said.
Palm Beach Gardens police undergo CPR and first aid training — including how to respond to choking adults and infants — at least every other year, department spokesman Maj. Paul Rogers said. Ayala credits his training for his quick response.
“This thing happened so fast, you didn’t have time to react. It’s just like muscle memory,” said Ayala, a father of three.
The Palm Beach Gardens City Council honored Ayala and Guadalupe Thursday night. Ayala previously received a life-saving award for forming a human chain with other officers to save two firefighters who got trapped in a rip-current effect as they attempted to rescue a young man who drowned in a spillway while wake-skating.
As for Lucia, paramedics checked her out as a precaution. The scare didn’t stop her from finishing her lunch.
Lucia’s 2 1/2-year-old brother, William, unfazed by the incident, continued eating his chicken and french fries.
Dad Curt Graham got a very long text message while he was at work, “which is never a good thing.” He called his wife, who was shaken up as she recounted what happened.
He’s “eternally grateful for the fast action,” he said.
The FCC Just Faked Out America With
Last-Minute Vote On Consumer
Ajit Pai is BIG MONEY’s plant in the FCC. We have one chance left to save Net Neutrality, contact your Law Maker in Washington and tell them to support Net Neutrality by overturning the FCC’s repeal of Net Neutrality with the CRA.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) seems to have pulled some fast and fancy moves this week, as a controversial change to its complaint review process was seemingly pulled, and then suddenly passed.
Today, the FCC’s four remaining commissioners voted along party lines to approve a package of rule changes around how it handles consumer feedback, including complaints against internet service providers (ISPs), following several long-term scandals about its actions and/or inaction in this area.
Earlier this week, one aspect of that package drew public ire when a series of media reports pointed out that more Americans might have to pay $225 to have the FCC review their complaints.
The matter at hand, as Motherboard deftly explained, is this:
As it stands, the FCC currently accepts two kinds of complaints from cable or broadband subscribers: formal and informal. Informal complaints are free but often ignored. In contrast, formal complaints cost a $225 processing fee and kick off a cumbersome legal process involving hearings and paperwork most users won’t have the time for.
A fact sheet circulated by the FCC… claims the agency’s proposed rule change simply “streamlines and consolidates procedural rules” involving said complaints. But a letter sent to the FCC by Democratic Senators Frank Pallone Jr. and Mike Doyle claims that under the changes the FCC would have forwarded all informal complaints to ISPs without reading them, forcing consumers to pay a $225 fee if they want to be taken seriously by the agency.
Some confusion ensued, but ultimately the FCC reportedly said it would postpone voting on that matter in today’s hearing, but then Chairman Ajit Pai proposed and successfully passed it, anyway.
In his comprehensive summary of the whole situation, Gizmodo’s Rhett Jones described this week’s fast-moving mess the best: “By sneaking the changes through a vote via complicated legalese and the use of footnotes, the FCC has at least done us a favor in bringing it to everyone’s attention that the rules are bullshit and require taxpayers to cough up more money if they want to guarantee their complaint will be taken seriously.”
As media quoted widely, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, the only remaining Democrat after Mignon Clyburn’s emphatic resignation earlier this year, called the decision “bonkers.”
Pedophiles Desperately Trying To Join
LGBT Movement with Their Own
IT IS WRONG TO IMPLANT INDIFFERENCE IN A CHILD’S HEART!!!!
We, the American People, who believe there is a basic set of values necessary to be a good parent, a good family member, a good neighbor, a good, productive member of the community, and a good citizen of this Country, have allowed our Justice system and elected officials to circumvent the Laws of our Country and guaranteed rights of We The People and all of our Children, all the while ignoring duly licensed Medical Doctors, in favor of Psychologists theories and generalizations in their pushing their #Perverse #AntiChildAgenda over the rights of We The People and all the Children of America.
Pedophiles have renamed themselves as “Minor Attracted Persons” in order to try and get acceptance and inclusion into the LGBT community.
The Daily Caller reported that Urban Dictionary defines Minor Attracted Persons — also known as MAPs — as a blanket term that includes infantophiles (a person attracted to infants), pedophiles (a person attracted to prepubescent children), hebephiles (a person attracted to pubescent children) and ephebophiles (a person attracted to post-pubescent children).
There are also NOMAPs or “Non-Offending Minor Attracted Persons” who reportedly don’t act on their attractions. “Just because someone is attracted to a child does not mean they are automatically going to sexually abuse them,” The Prevention Project said.
They’re using this new term in order to distance themselves from the toxicity of the connotation of the word “pedophile” and become a part of the LGBT community.
The MAP community claims that pedophiles are “misunderstood, marginalized people,” much like the LGBT community, according to The Daily Caller. They even created a flag for Gay Pride Month.

Websites like The Prevention Project say that “Everyone (Including Minor Attracted Persons or MAPs) Deserves Support” and provide stories that are meant to pull on heartstrings.
For example, they told the story of “John,” who “is not a child molester nor is he a sex offender. He has an attraction to children.” “John” was suicidal and bullied, but his therapist said he wouldn’t treat “sex offenders” after “John” told him about his attraction.
The Prevention Project insists that “John” deserves support too because “having an attraction is not the issue; acting on one’s attraction is.”
There are Tumblr blogs that provide support for people of the MAPs community in order to create “safe spaces” for them, The Daily Caller reported.
This is not the first time that people have attempted to redefine pedophilia as a sexual orientation that should be included in the LGBT community.
WND reported that a group of mental health professionals created B4U-Act in 2003 to “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma, and fear.”
In 2010, two Canadian psychologists said that pedophilia is a sexual orientation. “True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent,” Van Gijseghem, a psychologist and retired University of Montreal professor, told Parliament.
The 2013 WND article went on to report that with the laws that were being introduced at the time for gay rights could also pave the way for pedophilia rights.
“The language is so broad and vague, it arguably could include all forms of sexual orientation including pedophilia,” Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, said. “It’s not just the orientation that is protected, that conduct associated with the orientation is protected as well.”
This name change, as The Daily Caller pointed out, would follow the liberal trend of making things “politically correct.” It’s concerning to think about how much things like pedophilia will be normalized if they are made “politically correct.”
Investigation: Obama’s People Drugged,
Force-Fed Meds to Border Kids
The journalism hall of shame keeps getting more crowded.
A blockbuster report last week by the Center for Investigative Reporting cast a glaring light on a practice of U.S. authorities forcing immigrant children who have been separated from their parents to take psychiatric medicines – and forcibly injecting them if they resisted.
But in its eagerness to damn President Donald Trump and his administration for yet another aspect of handling illegal alien minors, according to a commentary writer for the Washington Examiner, the report left out one crucial detail.
The practice began during the Obama administration, and three of the four minors who are plaintiffs in a lawsuit naming Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a defendant were actually drugged long before Trump even took the oath of office.
As reported by the Washington Examiner’s Philip Wegmann, a lengthy article published Wednesday by Reveal, a publication of the Center for Investigative Reporting, failed to note anywhere in the text that the practice of drugging illegal alien children at a Houston-area social services contractor was begun while Obama was in the White House.
“The reporting is detailed and horrific, but the story creates a fake villain,” Wegmann wrote. “The first words of the piece are ‘President Donald Trump.’ The article blames Trump and his current zero tolerance policy on immigration for creating “a zombie army of children.” That is misleading at best.
“Three of the four children cited in the report were drugged during the Obama administration. According to federal court filings, only one occurred while Trump was actually president. The other three happened in 2016. That timing is left out of the story, which, after opening with Trump’s policies, never mentions the years of the specific incidents of mistreatment.”
“Misleading at best”? Wegmann is being kind.
As he noted, the first three words of the piece are “President Donald Trump.” The piece was published in the middle of a nationwide hysteria over the status of children of illegal aliens who have been separated from their parents. The wrong conclusion is obviously easy to draw — intentionally easy, apparently.
Only a reader willing to dig into the lawsuit filings that are linked to the article would have a clue that the practice is not some monstrosity cooked up by the administration of the man who’s now holds the presidency.
There is one hint in the article that the contractor – the Shiloh Treatment Center – had a history of problems that predate the Trump administration. Namely, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee had been calling for the center to be closed as early as 2014. (This might be the first and only time the regrettable Rep. Lee might not have been utterly wrong about something.)
But the editors of the ironically named Reveal had to know that the percentage of readers willing to read into the actual court filings linked with the article would be vanishingly small. Likewise, the offhand reference to Lee doesn’t so much establish a time frame for problems at the center as emphasize the false impression that Democrats are the party that actually cares about children.
It looks like there’s more than “misleading” that’s happening here. It looks a lot like a deliberate deception, a slight of journalistic hand that pretends to “reveal” some fact when conveying an idea that’s completely different from reality.
But what is absolutely clear is depth to which anti-Trump journalists are willing to go to smear the administration with loosely presented facts.
Given the hoaxes that have already been perpetrated surrounding the story of the “separated families” there’s no denying what’s happening.
Liberals have lied to the American people about caged children (using pictures taken during the Obama administration or outright staged for propaganda purposes). They’ve deliberately misrepresented the picture of the little girl who made the cover of Time magazine.
Major media (including USA Today) picked up a story about 1,450 children allegedly “lost” by the Trump administration when it wasn’t true.
And these are just a few of the examples.
The “Russian collusion” coverage has been skewed and tainted, but for sheer, outrageous misstatements and half-truths, it’s doubtful the country has seen distortion like this from the media since the “hands up, don’t shoot” lies of the Ferguson, Missouri, demonstrations turned into a national movement by Black Lives Matter thugs.
But the truth will come out eventually. And it’s going to hurt the liberal media more than it hurts the rest of the country.
Until then, the journalism hall of shame is just going to keep getting bigger.
