Online Central Texas Child Sex Sting Leads To 8 People Being Arrested
BELTON, TX – Eight men have been arrested in a two-day online child sex sting in Bell County, the oldest of whom is 79.
Two of the men traveled more than two hours to meet with whom they thought was a teenage girl, Bell County sheriff’s Maj. T.J. Cruz said in a press release Monday.
Two others are active-duty military personnel, he said.
“Each individual engaged in sexual conversation with a person believed to be a 15- or 16-year-old female and agreed to meet this person to engage in sexual acts for a fee,” Cruz said.
Kevin Wallace, 31; Harkin Alano, 49; Christopher Slough, 43, of Irving; Vidoll Smith, 27, of Temple: Gustavo Miranda, 38; Ramon Rodriguez, 24; Charles Pulley, 63, of Gun Barrel City and Daniel Martinez, 79 were arrested in the sting, Cruz said in a press release Monday.
Slough, Smith, Wallace, and Pulley remained in the Bell County Jail Monday, where they are held in lieu of $50,000 bonds.
Smith was held on bonds totaling $54,000.
He’s also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon.
Alano, Miranda and Rodriguez did not appear on the jail’s online roster Monday.
Lego recently announced its launch of a rainbow-colored building block set available June 1 – just in time for Gay Pride Month.
Lego has created its first LGBTQ toy that glorifies gender inclusivity and ignores one’s biological sex. This 346-piece set includes a rainbow-colored background and minifigures of each color. There is even a purple drag queen figure, according to Matthew Ashton, the designer of the set.
“We’re super excited to reveal our new set – Lego: Everyone Is Awesome!” the company tweeted Thursday. “Because we celebrate every Lego builder.”
“The set features a rainbow wall, plus black and brown, and the colors of the transgender flag: sky blue, white, and pink,” Fox Business reported. “The rainbow wall has 11 accompanying figures with a corresponding color.”
With the pro-LGBTQ toy being recommended for ages 18+, many critics are concerned about the actual contents inside the new product’s box and its appropriateness for minors, but Ashton insists that it is for all.
“I wanted to create a simple little set with a powerful message of love, inclusivity, and acceptance … so here it is! #lego love to you all!” tweeted Ashton, who is also a Lego vice president of design.
Aston claims the set advocates tolerance but is also persistent that Lego be on board to build the LGBTQ agenda.
“That’s what’s been so important to me in getting this set out with a message that we can be really proud of,” he added. It’s apparent that even toy manufacturers are attempting to indoctrinate children by exposing them to the LGBTQ lifestyle. Why can’t Lego let kids be kids instead of glamorizing a sinful lifestyle?
OneMillionMoms, I believe you already know the answer to that!!!! Parents, I am Robert StrongBow, and I have one very important thing to say:
IT IS WRONG TO IMPLANT INDIFFERENCE IN A CHILD’S HEART
Lego is confusing our innocent children by attempting to normalize this lifestyle choice, which is not only irresponsible but also dangerous to the well-being of our children. Toy manufacturers need to remain neutral and should avoid aiming to please a small percentage of customers while pushing away conservative customers.
It is crystal clear that Lego is attempting to desensitize our youth, so One Million Moms believes it’s urgent to warn parents of the company’s agenda. One News Now covered this story recently. We have included the article here for additional information. One News Now is a division of American Family Association, the parent organization of One Million Moms.
We must remain diligent and stand up for biblical values and truth. Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature.
Brave teacher tells school board: Teach education, not left wing ideas
A Louisiana high school teacher laid it on the line recently when he correctly told the local school board that gender identity education was “liberal ideology” that is creeping into New Orleans area classrooms.
Jonathan Koeppel, a third-year Spanish teacher, played a clip from a lesson used by students called “BrainPop,” in which children are directed to stop using personal pronouns like “he” and “she” and begin using gender neutral words like “they.”
While addressing the school board, he said, “This isn’t a political indoctrination camp, it’s public education.” His full address can be heard in viral video circulating the web.
“I was really shocked when I found out that a children’s program was promoting this idea that there are infinite genders to children,” Koeppel told the Daily Caller. “When I saw this was happening, I realized that kids in my area were being exposed to this; I said you know what, I am not going to be quiet about it. I am going to make a very firm stance.”
More and more educators are beginning to stand up and speak out against social experimentation and the indoctrination of public school children into “progressive” ideology.
Jonathon Koeppel is a champion that parents should applaud and an inspirational example to other teachers who want to see common sense teaching returned to the classroom.
Also, check out the powerful video, In His Image: Delighting in God’s Plan for Gender and Sexuality, from American Family Studios. So many families are privately struggling with issues of transgenderism, same-sex attraction, and sexual brokenness. Many pastors and small group leaders desire to reach out with compassion and truth to those who are struggling, but they don’t even know where to begin. This feature-length documentary from American Family Studios is now available for church screenings at no cost to you.

On April 9, 2020, At least19 States Attorneys Generalwrote President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary Azar, and Director Collins in support of the current ban on federal funding for fetal tissue research that took effect in June 2019. California and several other States (the “California letter”)recently entreated this administration to end what they call the “Fetal Tissue Ban” in order to facilitate research on COVID-19. We urge you to deny that request.
In December 2016, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote in a letter to Obama-era Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI director James Comey, informing them he was referring “the paid fetal tissue practices of the following organizations… to the FBI and the Department of Justice for investigation and potential prosecution.”
ABR was among the organizations named:
Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc.
Novogenix Laboratories, LLC
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte
Planned Parenthood Los Angeles
Planned Parenthood Northern California
Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest
Grassley said in a statement at the time.:
I don’t take lightly making a criminal referral. But, the seeming disregard for the law by these entities has been fueled by decades of utter failure by the Justice Department to enforce it. And, unless there is a renewed commitment by everyone involved against commercializing the trade in aborted fetal body parts for profit, then the problem is likely to continue.
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP), with project lead David Daleiden, conducted an undercover investigation exposing the alleged illegal practices of Planned Parenthood and its partners in the fetal tissue procurement industry.
“This type of experimental research is a gross violation of human dignity and is not where the majority of Americans want their tax dollars being spent,” said Tom McClusky, president of March for Life Action. “The government has no business creating a marketplace for aborted baby body parts.”
“The Biden administration is making it once again clear that it places no value on the inherent dignity of human life. Their actions deny the truth that every human life, born and unborn, possesses inherent dignity and deserves to be treated with respect.” @tperkins

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins also said:
As expected, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, a fanatical advocate for abortion, announced the Biden administration will now force American taxpayers to pay for barbaric experiments using the body parts of aborted babies. Instead of using ethical and effective alternatives, Biden is choosing to reinstate a policy that traffics in the grizzly remains of what would have been our next generation.
“The fact is that the remains of aborted babies have not been used to create the cure of a single disease,”Perkins added. “It’s clear that the NIH under President Biden means to do the opposite of ‘follow the science.’”
National pro-life researchers and leaders have long warned of the co-dependent relationship between abortion industry leaders such as Planned Parenthood and Democrat politicians.
Dr. Tara Sander Lee, senior fellow and director of life sciences at the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute, said in a statement the Biden-Harris administration’s “decision to resume experiments using the body parts of aborted children defies both the best ethics and most promising science.”
Lee asserted the claims of Democrats that tissue from the bodies of aborted babies is essential to develop essential drugs are false:
Exploiting the bodies of these young human beings is unnecessary and grotesque. Fetal tissue was not, and has never been, used for polio or any other vaccine, nor to produce or manufacture any pharmaceutical. There are superior and ethical alternatives available such as adult stem cell models being used by countless scientists worldwide to develop and produce advanced medicines treating patients now, without exploitation of any innocent life. All scientists should reject the administration’s attempts to prey on fears related to the pandemic to advance the practice of harvesting fetal tissue.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser also said in the statement that Biden and Harris are “working hand-in-glove with radical appointees like Xavier Becerra” and are “moving rapidly to pay back their abortion industry allies and wipe out pro-life progress made under the Trump-Pence administration.” Dannenfelser added:
From day one they have sought to expand abortion on demand, funded by taxpayers, against the will of the strong majority of Americans. Now they would force Americans to be complicit in barbaric experiments using body parts harvested from innocent children killed in abortions, with no limits of any kind.
Last week, legal watchdog organization Judicial Watch provided a nearly 600-page report that included uncovered emails of conversations between Food and Drug Administration (FDA) employees and the California-based biomedical company Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR). The emails revealed the U.S. government had been buying and trafficking “fresh” aborted baby body parts.
According to the report, the FDA purchased the body parts, which were derived from babies aborted at up to 24-weeks’ gestation, in order to engineer humanized mice and perform experimental drug research.
The sale of aborted fetal tissue is a serious breach of law and ethics that has violations of numerous state and federal laws associated with it. Please sign our petitionand contact your elected representatives to urge the U.S. Congress to investigate the black market in aborted baby parts, and demand that the FBI and the Department of Justice investigate and prosecute Biden/Harris, Xavier Becerra, and all Law Makers that broke any state and/or Federal law and be held accountable as elected officials to the fullest extent of the law.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not following this as presented, for the simple reason that this tears me into little tiny pieces. After over 6 years and 9 months of doing everything possible to make this world a better place for Our Children, and to pass along to parents what the values are that Children should be taught from birth, that are necessary to become good, productive citizens, and members of the community. I want to say Thank You to Mr. Blair Corbett, Founder of Ark of Hope for Children, for all he has helped me with, all the resources he has made available to me thru all thesse years, and for all the many, many hours he has selflessly given to ensure that I know how to do this as it should be done for all the Children of this world.

The Human Capital project is a 30-month-long investigative journalism study by The Center for Medical Progress, documenting how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted babies. Citizen journalists at CMP spent two-and-a-half years logging thousands of research hours to painstakingly gather hundreds of hours of undercover footage, dozens of eye-witness testimonies, and nearly two hundred pages of primary source documents. This information will continue to be made available to the public at this site.
The video footage gathered in this project is presented in two formats: 1) as summary videos of specific undercover encounters, and 2) as a multi-part documentary web series, “Human Capital,” which integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to tell the story of Planned Parenthood’s commercial exploitation of aborted fetal tissue.
The title “Human Capital” is a wordplay on the typical economic term for the value to an enterprise of the skills and abilities of human individuals. CMP’s project explores the business value of human bodies themselves to Planned Parenthood, and the way the “human capital” of aborted baby parts affects the real human capital of those who work in Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics.
The sale of aborted fetal tissue is a serious breach of law and ethics that has violations of numerous state and federal laws associated with it. Please sign our petition and contact your elected representatives to urge the U.S. Congress to investigate the black market in aborted baby parts.
Holly O’Donnell worked as a procurement technician for StemExpress, harvesting aborted fetal body parts inside some of the biggest Planned Parenthood facilities in northern California before she quit in disgust with the inhuman callousness and systemic criminality of the business. This new video series from CMP highlights Holly’s whistleblower testimony and how her eyewitness experience corroborates the violations documented in CMP’s undercover videos and the House Select Panel and Senate Judiciary Committee investigations.
