UCLA professor of medicine charged with possession and distribution of
A professor at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine was charged with distributing and possessing child pornography, a Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office news release announced Wednesday.
Guido Germano, director of artificial intelligence medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and UCLA professor-in-residence, plead not guilty to one felony count of distributing obscene matter and one count of possession of child or youth pornography Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times.
He is accused of using a peer-to-peer software to distribute child pornography videos and downloading them to his personal computer, according to Deputy District Attorney Angela Brunson of the Cyber Crime Division in the news release.
Germano is still listed on the UCLA campus directory as of Aug. 2. However, he was placed on administrative leave Thursday after the university was made aware of the charges against him, a UCLA spokesperson said.
He was arrested June 19 and released on bond. His arraignment was scheduled for Aug. 1.
Germano faces a potential maximum sentence of three years and eight months in state prison if convicted as charged, according to the news release. The case is still under investigation.
PROVIDENCE, RI – Rhode Island enacted a law which prohibits parents from seeking psychological help for their gender dysphoric children.
Last year, the State of Rhode Island made it illegal for a licensed medical professional to counsel a child away from the desire to change his/her gender identity, yet it remains legal to inject that same child with hormone blockers and cross-sex hormones.
College of Pediatricians Calls Transgender Ideology ‘Child Abuse’
The American College of Pediatricians warns educators and legislators that “a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex” is dangerous for children.
In a strongly worded statement issued today, the professional association of pediatricians says “a person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.” It describes such thinking as problem that exists in the mind and not the body and “it should be treated as such.”
NOW, you tell me how a “Prepubescent Child” is going to KNOW, much less ASK, FOR or ABOUT puberty blockers.
WE THE PEOPLE have allowed PEDOPHILES to not only enact laws that make it impossible to raise Children as was intended, but also to Parent Children and pass along their AntiChild, homosexual agenda. Both of these are no less than FELONY CHILD ABUSE.
“Pediatrician: ‘Transgender’ ideology has created widespread Child Abuse.”
“Transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us — CHILDREN!”
“The fact that in normal life and in psychiatry, anyone who “consistently and persistently insists” on anything else contrary to physical reality is considered either confused or delusional.”
Dr. Michelle Cretella, MD, FCP, president of the American College of Pediatricians, is a prominent expert in children’s health who has battled against the relentless promotion of transgender ideology as it impacts kids.
“The active promotion of transgenderism has resulted in massive uncontrolled and unconsented experimentation upon children and adolescents,” Cretella warned. “This is child abuse.”
Pretty much ties it all together in a dirty #AntiChild knot. What is “NOT” surprising is the fact that Dennis Hastert and Jerry Sandusky was big-buddy Child Predators, right along with so many big names like Ed Savitz from PA, philanthropist Samuel Rappaport (Democratic member of the PA House of Representatives), Lawrence Scott Ward (in prison for Child Porn), former DNC Chair, Ed Rendell, and even a Podesta (not surprised, shame on you Hillary AND BILL)….
It’s real easy to see why OUR LAW MAKERS SAID NOTHING as every chance at a normal childhood, along with their rights, was taken from Our Children, while being given to the perverse. EQUAL JUSTICE???? The “have-nots” draw sentences in the 2 and 3 digit range, while the “SEWER RATS” use their revolving door card.
Chicago – A few pages after yet another story about the latest in the Harvey Weinstein saga, I read a Tribune editorial entitled: “The toughest job in state government,” and came upon a paragraph that reduced me nearly to tears.
It read: “The mother of a 2-year-old toddler from Charleston allegedly left him alone for days in a playpen with two peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and a bottle of vitamin water with a small hole pricked in the top. He was discovered days later, dead from dehydration and starvation or a combination, according to the medical examiner.”
While the Dec. 19 Tribune editorial focused on the problems within the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, child abuse problems in America are pandemic.
The latest 2015 Child Maltreatment Report from The Children’s Bureau was published in January 2017. The CB report “shows an increase in child abuse referrals from 3.6 million to 4 million. The number of children involved subsequently increased to 7.2 million from 6.6 million,” according to the American Society for the Positive Care of Children. “The report also indicates an increase in child deaths from abuse and neglect to 1,670 in 2015, up from 1,580 in 2014. Some reports estimate child abuse fatalities at 1,740 or even higher. The United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations – losing on average almost five children every day to child abuse and neglect.”
It got me to thinking. Is child abuse getting its proper coverage in the media and attention from officials? Or is it being shoved aside because it doesn’t wear a celebrity face and status?
I cannot know the trauma caused by sexual harassment. But I do know it can be survived. A child’s maltreatment and death, however, cannot.

Then The Daughter The Convicted Pedophile Raped Speaks Up
It was 1996 when police arrested Jim and Justine and charged them with prolonged sexual abuse and exploitation of their 13-year-old daughter, Amanda.
At the time, Jim claimed that he didn’t think he was doing any harm to his daughter, and that in those days, child molestation was considered “something people joke about” — citing comic book “Chester The Molester” as supposed cultural evidence of this.
But the repercussions of that abuse — which began when his daughter was just 11 — would haunt Amanda into her adulthood, sending her life sideways as she attempted to self-medicate and escape the pain.
Now, 20 years later, Amanda and her biological parents meet again — Amanda for an apology, her parents (particularly her father) forgiveness.
Appearing on Wednesday’s episode of “Dr. Phil,” Amanda says her parents would routinely photograph her in “provocative” situations and video tape her performing various sexual acts— sometimes with her father — with the plan to sell the tapes across the world.
She tells Dr. Phil: “Jim told me with the money we could make, I could go to college”
Amanda adds that she never saw any of her supposed earnings. Her mother, on stage with Amanda already, begins weeping, presumably overwhelmed with guilt and regret at her part in the abuse.
Then Dr. Phil brings out Amanda’s father. The audience is silent as he walks out, the tension at its peak.
Amanda starts in on Jim, at first tenuously, seeming to barely contain her rage:
“Where to begin?…. How could you?”
Amanda begins to ask questions directly to her father — reluctantly, at first — saying she’s “dreamed of this moment,” but adding:
“Truthfully I would have preferred if you had been six feet under.”
Jim says to Amanda as she stares at him in anger and disbelief that he’s ashamed that he only remembers abusing Amanda four or five times when it was obviously a regular routine in the family.
Looking straight at his daughter, he says:
“It should have been burned into my memory as much as it was into yours.”
As Amanda recounts how her life spiraled out of control into adulthood — addiction, work as a topless dancer, even the creation of an alter ego to escape the pain she was experiencing — it’s clear that the memories left significant scars with lasting impact.
But the most chilling moments in the episode come from a one-on-one interview with Jim taped earlier, in which the former convict claims that during the early 1990’s, “sexually abusing children were things that people winked and joked about.”
Unbelievably, he goes on to complain that he’d been “exploited, taken advantage of [and] beaten up,” in prison. He also protested that he had never been aroused by his daughter, but rather was interested in the “mechanics.”
But Dr. Phil doesn’t pull punches responding to claims that Jim didn’t know what he was doing to his daughter, saying directly to Amanda:
“To suggest that he was in an environment where parents didn’t know it wasn’t okay to rape their children is insulting your intelligence, it’s insulting to your experience, it is a complete insult to this entire experience between him and you. Now he’s either that naive, or he’s just thumbing his nose at you because that is an idiotic statement.”
To watch the entire episode, which aired on Wednesday of this week, check Dr. Phil’s website for listings.
The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault, which collects statistics nationally, reports that 46% of children who are sexually abused are the victims of family members.
It also reports that 61% of American rape victims are raped before the age of 18, and unbelievable 29% of all rapes occurred before the victim was 11.
