Why Are Child Sex Trafficking Victims
Being Arrested?

Before you all begin this post, I want to say a few things.  On April 17, 2015, I published a post “Planned Parenthood Caught Giving Children Abortions“, and the sub-title was “U.S. Jails Sex-Trafficked Kids“.

I was able to utilize one of our new resources, Demanding Justice Report 2014, a study which was led by Ms Linda Smith, President and Founder, Shared Hope International, U.S. Congress 1995-99, Washington State Senate/House 1983-94.

This was a study of supply and demand of Sex Slaves, but especially about Child Sex Slaves.  We learned that the Law is really good about arresting the victim, but they also arrest the slavers sometimes.  Although they seldom EVER ARREST ANY BUYERS OF CHILD SEX.  You are probably asking yourself why, as you read this, and the answer is simple:  because the buyers are many times people in high places.

If you read this report, this Judge you are about to read about sounds just like what Ms Linda Smith talks about, CRONYS and GOOD OL’ BOYS.  This report is the first place I ever heard this called a “VICTIMLESS CRIME”, which made my blood boil white-hot.

Here we are 4 years later, and it is hard to believe 25 states still allow commercially sexually exploited minors to be charged and prosecuted for prostitution and human trafficking offenses despite federal and state laws that recognize these same minors as victims of child sex trafficking.

Last month a judge in Kansas made national headlines for erroneously claiming that two girls — just 13 and 14-years-old — were “aggressors” in a case where a 67-year-old man paid them to have sex.

“So, she’s uncomfortable for something that she voluntarily went to, voluntarily took her top off for, and was paid for?” said Kansas Judge Michael Gibbens.

“I wonder, what kind of trauma there really was to this victim under those peculiar circumstances?”

The public responded with outrage, but the issue of children who are victims of sex trafficking being charged for prostitution and minor crimes they were forced to commit is nothing new.

Writing in a piece for Wichita State University, Dr. Karen Countryman-Roswurm from the Center for Combating Human Trafficking, Wichita State University and Linda Smith from Shared Hope International explain:

As a society, we must ask, why did money sanitize what, in any other circumstance, would be considered child rape?  And more concerning, how did the exchange of money shift the narrative so dramatically so as to characterize children as aggressors in the crime of which they were victims?

The answers lie in the paradox in which victims of child sex trafficking are legally apprehended and consequently, socially stigmatized.  Twenty-five states, including Kansas, still allow commercially sexually exploited minors to be charged and prosecuted for prostitution and human trafficking offenses despite federal and state laws that recognize these same minors as victims of child sex trafficking.

This paradox still exists despite an increase in awareness, and specific laws to protect children from such offenses over the last couple of decades.

Criminalizing youth who have experienced the horrors of commercial sexual exploitation, and oftentimes survived traumatic experiences that predate the exploitation, is not only the gravest of injustices but also prevents survivors from receiving critical services and ongoing, specialized care.

Notably, the age of consent in Kansas is 16, meaning sexual contact between an adult and the minors in this case was not consensual.  Still, comments on social media surrounding this case tried to place blame on these two girls, calling them “delinquent,” “out of control,” “promiscuous,” and “prostitutes.”

As Countryman-Roswurm and Smith write, “as Kansans we must ask ourselves: How do we really view individuals who have been victimized by and survived human trafficking?  If we truly care, how do we shift our culture to recognize all survivors of sexual violence, including child sex trafficking, as unequivocally blameless in the conduct that constitutes their very victimization?”

MO Daycare Worker Charged With Abuse Of Toddler

Rolla, MO daycare employee arrested,
charged with Child Abuse

ROLLA, MO  –  A Rolla daycare employee has been arrested and charged after allegedly abusing a child at the Immanuel Lutheran School.

According to court documents, a detective with the Rolla Police Department was assigned to follow up on an allegation of child abuse on January 14th.

When the detective got to the school, he was met by a mother of a two-year-old boy. That mother told the officer her son had injuries when she picked him up on January 9th that he did not have when she had dropped him off.

The detective watched several days of surveillance video from the classroom where Natalie Rhyneer was supervising that boy.

According to court documents, officers say Rhyneer is seen twisting and flicking the boy’s ear in one of the videos.

In a different video, police say Rhyneer picked the boy up and rocked him while he was crying.

Court documents say in that video, Rhyneer can be heard saying “stop hurting me” to the child.  The boy cries but those cries are muffled as Rhyneer holds his face against her chest.  Police say the boy begins to struggle and pull away.  He lies on the floor, and police say Rhyneer covers his mouth.

While the two-year-old was lying on his stomach on the floor, police say Rhyneer is seen laying on top of him saying “stop it.”

Court documents say Rhyneer then places her hand on the back of his head, pulls a pillow to his face, and muffles his cries.

Police say the boy kicks and stiffens his legs and stops crying.  After a few seconds, police believe the boy regains consciousness and starts crying again.

Court documents say police took the video to a child abuse physician who said the video and images showed actions and injury consistent with suffocation.

Rhyneer was charged with two counts of child abuse and was arrested Thursday morning.  She posted a $50,000 bond.  There is a hearing set for April 2nd.

A Reporter with one person with the church who did not want to be identified.  That source said the congregation of the Immanuel Lutheran Church voted to shut the school down completely shortly after these allegations surfaced in January.

The closure of the school is something the congregation had thought about in previous years because of declining enrollment, according to that source.

The church did not have any official statement on the arrest.

Brothers Involved in Baby Body Parts
Trafficking Arrested by ICE

” ….including $90,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.  As a result, after reaching out to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for asylum, the Isaias’ were granted expedited immigration into the U.S. Clinton’s State Department then rebuffed attempts by Ecuador to extradite them to face justice.”

Miami, FL  –  Two wealthy Ecuadorian brothers who were principals in DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, the California companies fined and ordered to shut down for illegally trafficking world-wide in aborted baby parts it obtained from Planned Parenthood, were arrested by ICE on February 13, 2019.

According to Law.com:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested Roberto and William Isaías on Feb. 13.  ICE representative Nestor Yglesias said the brothers were “unlawfully present” in the U.S., and have been “transferred to ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations” for deportation proceedings following their arrest.  Yglesias added the pair is “in agency custody pending removal proceedings.”

The arrest of Roberto and William Isaias was gratifying to Operation Rescue, which published an investigative research report on October 27, 2016 – just days before the Presidential Election that put Donald J. Trump in office – that detailed their crimes in Ecuador, dubious dealings with the Obama administration, their business with Planned Parenthood and the aborted baby body parts trade.

“We understood that this family was in the U.S. under suspicious circumstances, and that they had committed crimes in Ecuador and Southern California,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.  “We had hoped that one day they would return to Ecuador so that justice could be done, but their arrests still took us by surprise.”

In 2012, Roberto and William Isaias were sentenced in abstentia to eight years in prison for running their Ecuadorian bank into the ground then presenting false balance sheets to profit from bailout funds, wiping out the life savings of thousands of families.  Ecuador says the Isaias family cost the impoverished country a total of $661.5 million.

The Isaias family began dumping large amounts of campaign contributions into American political campaigns, including $90,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.  As a result, after reaching out to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for asylum, the Isaias’ were granted expedited immigration into the U.S. Clinton’s State Department then rebuffed attempts by Ecuador to extradite them to face justice.

Once in America, the Isaias family owned and operated DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, companies that contracted exclusively with Planned Parenthood of Orange County to receive aborted baby tissues and organs, which they trafficked overseas.

Roberto and William Isaias’ nephew, Estafano Isaias, Jr., who was involved in profit-taking from the two biotech companies, also owned a business that sold pornography online.

After the release of the Center for Medical Progress’ undercover video exposés in 2015, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas sued the companies for their illegal body parts trade, and in 2017 reached a settlement agreement that fined them $7.8 million, and ordered their businesses to close.

“We have mentioned the Isaias brothers repeatedly in articles that we have published over the past couple of years, including the corruption in the Obama Administration, which allowed them to come to our country where they committed further crimes,” said Newman.  “We hoped that someone would take notice.”

Just last month, Operation Rescue published an exposé that delved into the market for aborted baby body parts.  It revealed that the DaVinci biotech companies sent tissues and organs obtained from Planned Parenthood around the world to businesses that were working to develop anti-aging drugs for the wealthy.

“The Isaias’ are bad people, and we are very relieved that they will soon be back in Ecuador to serve their sentences and hopefully return the money they took from the people they bilked,” said Newman.  “And we are especially glad that they are out of the baby parts trade permanently.”

No Party For Role Models

This bunch has no work ethics, they care nothing for the people who elected them to office, but by not signing the CRA and rolling back NET NEUTRALITY is just more proof that they took PAYOLA from AT&T also, which proves they are also corrupt.

Hate Crimes Are So Rare They Have To
Be Invented

For the last number of years, our nation has been awash in “hate crimes” against minorities, homosexuals, and transgendered folk.

Or have we?

The national media went into an instant froth in early February when actor Jussie Smollett, of the TV show “Empire,” claimed to have been beaten by two white guys wearing “MAGA” hats and yelling that Chicago is “MAGA country,” an assertion that is about as far from the truth as it is possible to get.  Smollett was able to tick two boxes on his victim card as both a black and a homosexual.

National race-baiters jumped into battle before the first pixels of the story had faded.   President candidates such as Kamala Harris and Cory Booker (of “Fartacus” fame) were quick to call it a “lynching,” and the rhetoric heated up from there. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called it “an affront to our humanity.”  Socialist poster child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blistered the media for describing the incident as a “possible” hate crime.  Her anti-American, pro-Palestinian colleague Rashida Tlaib wrote hysterically that “the right-wing is killing and hurting our people.”

Now, however, Smollett has turned from a victim into a perp.   Chicago police are now saying the attack was staged by the actor with the help of two acquaintances of his from Nigeria who took five grand from Smollett for their part in the hoax. Celebrities from coast-to-coast are back-pedaling as fast as they can to get away from the mess altogether.  Even Nancy Pelosi deleted her nasty Tweet.

Last November, In Mississippi, an apparently horrid hate crime involving nooses turned out to be nothing of the sort.  In fact, the “perpetrators” were not racists but anti-racists.  The nooses were not an expression of racism, but a protest against racism.

The nooses in question were hung in the Mississippi state capitol building the day before the election last November.  Cindy-Hyde Smith, the Republican candidate and eventual winner, had made a lame joke about hanging that was clearly made in reference to the fate of horse thieves in the Old West.

The nooses had been found along with what the media called “hate signs,” which was a narrative that worked until the Mississippi Department of Public Safety released photos of the “hate signs.”  Here’s what they said:
On Tuesday, November 27th thousands of Mississippians will vote for a senator.  We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims.
We’re hanging nooses to remind people that times haven’t changed.

Oops.  The message of the nooses was not targeted at blacks but at supposedly racist whites.  The media slowly and reluctantly corrected their inflammatory headlines.

Also in Mississippi, just a week before the 2018 election that sent Donald Trump to the White House, a historic black church was burned and spray-painted with the message “Vote Trump.”  It was immediately labeled a “hate crime,” and remained so until authorities discovered that the culprit was actually a member of the congregation.  After the fire, while their church was being renovated, the congregation worshiped at a predominantly white church, a sign of the progress in race relations in the Deep South.

I am the co-author of Idaho’s marriage amendment, passed 63-37 in 2006 to enshrine man-woman marriage in our state constitution.  The homosexual lobby spent a good part of the campaign insisting that the amendment would unleash a wave of hate and violence targeted at gays in Idaho.

Sure enough, the day after the election, a twenty-something man filed a police report that he had been jumped while walking on our city’s greenbelt by attackers yelling anti-gay slurs and swinging their fists.  Ah, said the activists, there is your proof – we told you this would happen!

However, it didn’t take long for his story to unravel when he was questioned by police, and it turned out that he beat himself up because apparently there were no gay-haters in Boise willing to do it for him.

Andy Ngo is a journalist, editor (at Quillette), and photographer who started a thread on Twitter two days ago rehearsing the litany of fake hate crimes over the last several years.  (I’d show you but I have been suspended – again- by Twitter for telling the truth about sexual deviancy.)

Here is his giant list of fake hate crimes, just during the Trump administration.  In my judgment, we should simply abolish the “hate crime” designation altogether.  Every crime is a hate crime, and we should not give more legal protections to victims of some crimes than we give to victims of other crimes.  Justice indeed should be blind to color.

Peter Kirsanow, a member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights, points out that the facts contradict the media narrative that hate crimes are on rapid and disturbing rise:

FBI statistics for 2015 (the most recent available at the time of the 2018 U.S. Commission on Civil Rights Hate Crimes Hearing ) show that there were 1,997,700 violent crimes in the U.S.  A total of 5,850 crimes were designated hate crimes — whether violent or non-violent.  There were 15,696 cases of murder or manslaughter in the U.S., of which 8, or .0005, were designated hate crimes.  There were 764,449 aggravated assaults, of which 681, or .00089, were designated hate crimes.  There were 124,047 rapes, of which 12, or .000096, were designated hate crimes.  There were 327,374 robberies, of which 120, or .00036, were designated hate crimes.

In 2017, nearly 90 percent of reporting police departments registered zero hate crimes in their respective jurisdictions.  And the most recent data show that blacks are much more likely to commit hate crimes than whites.  In fact, blacks are approximately 200 percent more likely to commit hate crimes than whites.

At a Commission hearing on hate crimes, Kirsanow asked this question of the panel of criminologists, law-enforcement officials, and hate-crime experts:

“Are you aware of any data, studies, or other evidence that shows that designating a crime a hate crime deters, prevents, or reduces that crime, and second, whether designating a crime a federal hate crime reduces, deters, or prevents incidents of that crime?”

No one answered.  Kirsanow poses this question to us: “If designating a crime a hate crime doesn’t deter, prevent, or resolve such crime, what’s the purpose of the designation?  By now, most Americans are getting a pretty good idea.”

In other words, “hate crimes” are not about justice at all.  They’re about giving regressives a cudgel to beat conservatives about the head and shoulders until everybody figures out the crimes are fabrications.

Here’s a point worth pondering.  If hate crimes are so rare they have to be invented, perhaps America is not nearly as racist and homophobic as the Talking Snake Media wants us to believe.  And maybe, just maybe, the hate and racism are coming from the left rather than the right.

Domestic Violence Call Leads Officers To “Absolutely Disgusting Child Abuse Case”

Children found locked in dog cage, living
in deplorable conditions, Wise County
deputies say

RHOME, TX  –  A father and mother of four children are facing charges after deputies discovered a horrific scene of child abuse and neglect at a home Tuesday morning.

According to Wise County deputies, they received a call at about 7:20 a.m. on a report of domestic violence at a house off County Road 4930 near Newark, about 30 miles north of Fort Worth.

Andrew Fabila and Paige Harkings face four charges of child endangerment, authorities said.

When deputies arrived at the home, they found cuts to the Fabila’s face and heard children inside a barn, according to Sheriff Lane Akin, with the Wise County Sheriff’s Department.

Four children were found inside the barn:  a 4-year-old girl and three boys, ages 5, 3 and 1, Akin said.

The oldest two children were locked in a dog kennel measuring about 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, he said.  The other two were found mostly unclothed on the floor of the barn, covered in urine and feces, Akin said.

Akin said it was the worst child-abuse case he’d seen during his 44 years in law enforcement.

“I’ve not worked one where children are locked inside a dog kennel, and I find that absolutely disgusting,” he said.

Inside the barn, the space was “crudely fashioned” into rooms to create some sort of living quarters, Akin said.

“There was plenty of food inside the barn, but the refrigerator and the cabinets had been locked so the kids could not get in to get food,” the sheriff said.

The children were hungry and thirsty when deputies found them, so authorities gave them food and water before they were taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth.  Akin said he saw no obvious injuries to the children before they were hospitalized.

The children were released from the hospital Tuesday evening and will be placed in foster care, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services said.

Deputies noticed feces scattered throughout the house.

Fabila was sent to the hospital with cuts.  Harkins also faces a family violence charge.

The couple had been staying with the paternal grandparents’ house.  Texas Child Protective Services confirmed that they had previous contact with the family, but would not elaborate.

Multiple agencies are investigating.
