Four Disney employees arrested in Florida human trafficking, child predator sting

The campaign, called Operation March Sadness 2, led to the arrests of 108 people, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said.

Four Disney employees were arrested in a massive undercover operation targeting human traffickers, child predators and prostitution. 

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office identified the workers at a news conference Wednesday following the conclusion of Operation March Sadness 2, a six-day sting that led to the arrests of 108 people.

Xavier Jackson, 27, of Kissimmee, allegedly communicated online and via text with an undercover detective posing as a 14-year-old girl, authorities said.

Jackson worked as a lifeguard at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Sheriff Grady Judd said. He allegedly sent photos showing him “doing things that’s totally inappropriate” and bragged about working at the resort, the sheriff said.

Jackson was arrested and charged with three counts of harmful material and one count of unlawful communication.

The three other Disney employees were identified as Ralph Leese, 45; Shubham Malave, 27; and Wilakson Fidele, 24. They were all charged with soliciting a prostitute, Judd said.

Fidele, from Orlando, worked at Disney for about four years at the Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café in Tomorrowland, the sheriff said. Leese, from Winter Garden, worked in IT for Disney, and Malave was a software developer for the company. Malave is in the United States on a work visa, according to Judd. 

Several law enforcement agencies, including the Auburndale Police Department and the Haines City Police Department, worked with the sheriff’s office to make the arrests.

through online sites that identified prostitutes and victims looking for “johns,” authorities said. The detectives then communicated with the suspects, arranged to meet them and arrested the suspects at the location. 

The sheriff’s office said members of anti-trafficking organizations would assist to speak with the prostitutes to determine if they were human trafficking victims and to offer help. 

“The arrests of a human trafficker and four child predators alone makes this whole operation worthwhile,” Judd said in a statement. “The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and victimizes those who are being trafficked. Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and find and arrest those who are profiting from the exploitation of human beings.” 

Other suspects that were arrested included a retired Illinois judge and a 17-year-old boy.

Big Tech Censored Dozens of Doctors, More Than 800 Accounts for COVID-19 ‘Misinformation,’ Study Finds

Big Tech Censored Dozens of Doctors, More Than 800 Accounts for COVID-19 ‘Misinformation,’ Study Finds

Major technology companies and social media platforms have removed, suppressed or flagged the accounts of more than 800 prominent individuals and organizations, including medical doctors, for COVID-19 “misinformation,” according to a new study from the Media Research Center.

The study focused on acts of censorship on major social media platforms and online services, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Ads, and TikTok.

Instances of censorship included Facebook’s decision to flag the British Medical Journal with a “fact check” and “missing context” label, reducing the visibility of a post, for a study delving into data-integrity issues with a Pfizer vaccine clinical trial.

Facebook also deleted the page of the Great Barrington Declaration, an open letter led by dozens of medical professionals, including Dr. Jay Battacharya, a Stanford epidemiologist, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a former employee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which advocated for less restrictive measures to address the dangers of COVID-19.

“Big Tech set up a system where you can’t disagree with ‘the science’ even though that’s the foundation of the scientific method,” Dan Gainor, MRC vice president of Free Speech America, told the Daily Caller National Foundation. “If doctors and academic journals can’t debate publicly, then it’s not science at all. It’s ‘religion.’”

Big Tech also scrubbed podcast host Joe Rogan’s interviews with scientists Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone, the latter of whom was instrumental in pioneering mRNA technology. Twitter banned Malone from its platform permanently in late December over the virologist’s tweets questioning the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“We tallied 32 different doctors who were censored, including mRNA vaccine innovator Dr. Robert Malone,” Gainor said. “Censoring views of credentialed experts doesn’t ensure confidence in vaccines. It undermines faith in government COVID-19 strategies.“

In addition to medical doctors, the study examined instances in which members of Congress were censored by tech platforms.

These included an incident last August in which YouTube suspended Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for posting a video arguing that “cloth masks” are not effective against the coronavirus, a view later echoed by many prominent medical commentators. Twitter also flagged a tweet from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., in which he wrote “studies show those with natural immunity from a prior infection are much less likely to contract and spread COVID than those who only have vaccine-induced immunity.”

The study also examined Big Tech censorship of prominent media personalities, such as Rogan, Tucker Carlson, and Dan Bongino.

THAT LITTLE BLACK BOOK… The Clinton/Epstein Connection

According to records obtained by the Daily Mail, between 1993 and 1995, Jeffrey Epstein visited President Bill Clinton’s White House 17 times, bringing with him a total of eight women.

The convicted sex offender had connections to many celebrities, journalists and prominent political figures, including Clinton. Many of them were listed in Epstein’s little black book.

In its report on Epstein’s many visits to the Clinton White House, the Daily Mail noted that hanging on the walls of Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, were photos of these visits and a few of the women he had with him.

In addition to Epstein’s longtime partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, the names of the other seven women who accompanied him to the Clinton White House were listed in the report.

Maxwell was recently convicted of several crimes related to her complicity in the sex-trafficking crimes of Epstein.

The Daily Mail said three of the women named were Epstein’s former girlfriends — Celina Midelfart, Eva Andersson-Dubin and Francis Jardine.

The other women in the photos were Jennifer Garrison, Shelley Gafni, Jennifer Driver and Lyoubov Orlova.

As this news surrounding Bill Clinton continues to develop, one can just imagine Hillary tensing up with frustration and thinking to herself, “Not again!”

After all, her husband has been accused of sexually assaulting and harassing several women over the years, and he was impeached for lying about his sexual relationship with a White House intern.

It’s unclear how many additional prominent figures were involved in Epstein’s crimes.

Britain’s Prince Andrew faces a lawsuit over allegations that he sexually assaulted one of Epstein’s victims when she was 17 years old.

Andrew has denied any wrongdoing, but Queen Elizabeth II chose to strip him of his royal titles on Thursday.

Will other prominent political figures — former U.S. presidents, for example — face similar legal proceedings related to their relationships with Jeffrey Epstein?

Only time will tell.

Ghislaine Maxwell claims ‘creepy’ prison guards watch her in the shower and rat shares her cell…

MAYBE… NOW… SHE KNOWS HOW THE CHILDREN FELT THAT SHE KNOWINGLY GROOMED AND TRAFFICKED!
Ghislaine Maxwell claims 'creepy' prison guards watch her in the shower and rat shares her cell

Ghislaine Maxwell has spoken out from her jail cell ahead of her trial – claiming “creepy” guards watch her as she uses the bathroom.

Maxwell, 59, is awaiting trial on charges of grooming underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein.

We Just Witnessed The Start Of A Breakup ???? #Shorts

She is accused of helping arrange for the now-deceased disgraced financier to abuse underage girls as young as 14, which she denies.

Ahead of her trial, the socialite now claims that she is being watched by guards and her only company is the rats near to the open sewer drain in her cell, Mail On Sunday reports.

She’s had her bail rejected for the sixth time, despite moaning that she is being treated like “Hannibal Lecter.”

In her first-ever interview from behind bars, she has claimed that she is being kept in “inhumane” solitary confinement the entire time.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday she said: “I used to go to the loo with an open sewer drain and a friendly rat would regularly visit.

“I told the guards, but nothing was done until the rat popped out and charged a guard who screamed in terror. Finally, the sewer drain was covered.”

She added: “I used to take a shower every day but I’ve stopped because of the creepy guards who stand close and stare at me the whole time.”

Her lawyers argue her jail conditions are fit only for fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter – the fictional cannibalistic serial killer from the movie Silence of the Lambs.

What’s more, her lawyers say her continued imprisonment is “untenable and unreasonable”.

According to the paper, Maxwell’s lawyer David Oscar Markus told the court earlier on in the year: “Though she is a model prisoner who poses no danger to society and has done literally nothing to prompt ‘special’ treatment, she is kept in isolation.”

Markus continued: “Conditions fitting for Hannibal Lecter but not a 59-year-old woman who poses no threat to anyone. She is subjected to multiple invasive searches every day. Her every movement is captured on multiple video cameras. She is deprived of any real sleep by having a flashlight pointed into her cell every 15 minutes.”

In response to the claims of poor treatment, District Judge Alison Nathan has promised in a recent ruling that the 59-year-old would be taken from her jail cell to her trial “in a way that is humane, proper, and consistent with security protocols”.

It was previously reported by Reuters that the reason she has repeatedly been denied bail is due to concerns that she might flee and refuse to cooperate with authorities.

Epstein committed suicide by hanging in his jail cell in August 2019 as he awaited, also without the chance of bail, his trial on sex trafficking charges.

Maxwell’s trial is set to begin on November 29.

Two men sent to prison for trafficking troubled teenager

Department of JusticeU.S. Attorney’s OfficeSouthern District of Texas


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEMonday, November 1, 2021

Two men sent to prison for trafficking troubled teenager

HOUSTON – Two Houstonians are on their way to federal prison after admitting to recruiting a teenager on social media and trafficking her for sex, announced acting U.S. Attorney Jennifer B. Lowery.   

Demetrius Delaan White, 30, and Deonte Danquise Bailey-Roach, 28, pleaded guilty Jan. 27.

Today, U.S. District Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt sentenced White to 240 months, while Bailey-Roach received a 144-month-term of imprisonment. The court considered statements from the minor victim and her mother detailing the lasting impact of the teenager’s victimization. Both will be ordered to pay restitution to the victim and serve an additional five years on supervised release following completion of the prison terms, during which time they will have to comply with numerous requirements designed to restrict access to children and the internet. Both will also be ordered to register as sex offenders.

In 2017, White and Bailey-Roach recruited a troubled teenager on social media. They then brought her from her home in Stephenville to Houston to engage in commercial sex acts.

Over the next four days, they exploited the minor victim for their own sexual gratification and profit. They posted the minor victim on internet advertisements for commercial sex, during which time more than 300 people expressed interest. They rented motel rooms for the sex acts, drove her to clients’ homes and took her to a truck stop. They also had her walk on Bissonnet Street, an area commonly known for an open and rampant sex trade.

To induce the minor victim into continuing to engage in the activity, both men gave her drugs before the commercial sex acts. They also kept all the cash proceeds.

Both will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

The FBI and the Houston Police Department (HPD), both part of the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance (HTRA), conducted the investigation.

HTRA law enforcement includes members of the HPD, FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, Texas Attorney General’s Office, IRS-Criminal Investigation, Department of Labor, Department of State, Texas Alcoholic and Beverage Commission, Texas Department of Public Safety, Coast Guard and Sheriff’s Offices in Harris and Montgomery counties in coordination with District Attorney’s offices in Harris, Montgomery and Fort Bend Counties.

Established in 2004, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Houston formed HTRA to combine resources with federal, state and local enforcement agencies and prosecutors, as well as non-governmental service organizations to target human traffickers while providing necessary services to those that the traffickers victimized. Since its inception, HTRA has been recognized as both a national and international model in identifying and assisting victims of human trafficking and prosecuting those engaged in trafficking offenses.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kate Suh and Sebastian Edwards are prosecuting the case.

Tucker Carlson Drops Bombshell on Nat’l TV: Biden Is ‘Actively and Intentionally Breaking Federal Law’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson released a bombshell accusation against Joe Biden while on-air.

Tucker Carlson Drops Bombshell on Nat’l TV: Biden Is ‘Actively and Intentionally Breaking Federal Law’

By Staff – October 26, 2021

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson released a bombshell accusation against Joe Biden while on-air.

At the start of his program, Carlson criticized the Biden administration over their willful decision to ignore federal immigration law.null

Carlson directly accused Biden of intentionally breaking federal law.

Under previous circumstances, such actions have been an impeachable offense, Carlson notes.

The administration has turned a blind eye to illegal immigrants streaming across the U.S.-Mexico border, Tucker claims. null

Carlson said, “It’s criminal, and not in a rhetorical sense.”

“Joe Biden is actively and intentionally breaking federal law even as he works to protect himself and his own family from the consequences of these lunatic policies,” he continued.

“Presidents have been impeached for less than that,” Carlson added.https://8f7e4df4c469fb53faddb5ab450d727f.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

“In fact, no American President, however, has been impeached not Andrew Johnson, not Richard Nixon, not Bill Clinton, not even Donald Trump has ever even been accused of crimes this flagrant or this serious, not even close.”

“According to new court documents, between January 20 and the end of March, just for example, the Biden administration refused to take custody of 37 illegal immigrants in the State of Texas. Many of these people had additional criminal records.”

Watch the clip:

Take a look at the transcript:

CARLSON: So the administration promptly shut down all workplace immigration raids. Now employers who hire illegal aliens in order to undercut American wages have the full protection of the Department of Homeland Security, because it’s not a corporate conspiracy or anything. Don’t you worry

Now, the rest of the world is fully aware of this. They follow these developments, they have the internet, too. As a result, as you just heard Bill Melugin say, a massive migrant caravan has formed in Southeastern Mexico, in the City of Tapachula.

We want to show even more footage of that, which you did not see in Bill’s report.

You can see the caravan is heading here and smashing through police barricades as it does.

CARLSON: Everybody sympathizes with migrants who want a better life in this country, of course. Our government’s primary concern always must be the welfare of American citizens in a country that’s rapidly getting poorer, which we are. But in general, you sympathize. But migrants who violently break through a police line? No, not allowed here, ever. There is no possible way the U.S. benefits from anyone who would do that. Period.

And by the way, in contrast to previous years, these migrants are not coming exclusively from Latin America, they are coming from as far away as China, and again why wouldn’t they come? The border is now open for everyone. It’s not just Central Americans.

FOX’s Griff Jenkins has been covering these caravans for years and this weekend, he went to Southwest Mexico and immediately saw something very different. Watch.


(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

GRIFF JENKINS, FOX NEWS CHANNEL CORRESPONDENT: We’re in the town of Huehuetan, 16 miles north of Tapachula where this caravan started. You can see them, some children playing on a swing set, but we’re seeing a lot of families, a lot of children out here, and we’re seeing migrants from many different countries not just Central America, which was what was the situation in 2019, that Northern Triangle of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

But we see Haitians in here. We even met one woman from China that we couldn’t speak to her because she didn’t speak Spanish or English. Every migrant we talked to today said they’ve got one destination in mind and that’s the United States.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

CARLSON: So why are they coming? We don’t need to guess about that, ask the people who are coming here illegally. They’re not embarrassed to articulate it at all. They are coming because they know immigration enforcement under Joe Biden has been suspended in the United States.

The White House hasn’t simply ended workplace raids, they’ve also stopped turning people away at the border, so people just come in and they know they’ll never be forced to leave. Already, the administration has released more than 160,000 illegal migrants into the country with no supervision whatsoever, without telling the people into whose neighborhoods they’re moving, because they don’t care what American citizens think.

By the way, how many are vaccinated? You can’t go to events, you can’t have a job in this country without being vaccinated, but if you come here illegally, no problem. What does that tell you?

Now, tens of thousands of those migrants according to documents obtained by Fox News have already received work permits. Right. Soon they will receive free benefits and the healthcare that Joe Biden has promised them. That’s why they’re coming. Again just ask them and they’ll tell you.

200 arrested in Ohio, 10 missing children recovered: Ohio

Justice For Them

10 missing children recovered, more than 200 arrested in Ohio anti-human trafficking operation.

Attorney General Dave Yost detailed the results of the operation, referred to as “Ohio Knows,” during a briefing with several law enforcement agencies on Monday. 

A statewide anti-human trafficking operation resulted in the arrest of more than 200 people and the recovery of 10 missing children. 

According to the Diocese of Columbus, they were notified on Sept. 23 of Frazier’s arrest for solicitation. He was immediately suspended before his employment was terminated on Sept. 27.

Columbus firefighter Andrew Bartnikowski was just one of the arrests made on Sept. 27. He is charged with counts of engaging in prostitution.

According to court records, Bartnikowski responded to an online advertisement to pay for sex and engaged in multiple text messages and calls.

He was arrested at a hotel by undercover officers posing as prostitutes. 

The operation, which spanned one week, led to the arrest of 161 people seeking to buy sex, including three people from Franklin County who sought to buy sex from a minor. Additionally, 50 people were arrested for offering to sell sex. 

The operation enlisted the help of nearly 100 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies across Ohio. According to a release, 51 potential trafficking victims were interviewed and helped as a result.

Columbus City Council passed an ordinance last month aimed at holding offenders accountable, while also assisting victims. 

The anti-human trafficking plan focuses on criminal justice, victim services, technology, education and community collaboration. 

“I shake my head and can’t believe those stories,” said Yost. “It happens everywhere.”

“Operation United Front”

Human trafficking operation across 12 states leads to 102 arrests and 47 victims identified

August 27, 2021

DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) – A 12-state human trafficking operation this week has led to over 100 arrests and dozens of victims being identified by law enforcement.

According to the Iowa Department of Public Safety, 102 arrests and 47 victims were identified as part of Operation United Front. Most of the arrests were made the night of Aug. 26 and into the morning of Aug. 27, with efforts being coordinated by the Missouri Attorney General’s Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt says the operation used undercover law enforcement officers from federal, state and local agencies to arrange meetings with potential victims or posed as victims to identify buyers or traffickers.

In Iowa, law enforcement agencies say they executed 10 search warrants, identified five businesses involved in sex trafficking, made 11 arrests and seized a “large quantity of U.S. currency.”

Among the states that were part of the operation were Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.

Human trafficking uniquely affects Iowa given our proximity to major metropolitan areas like Kansas City and Chicago and the intersection of two major interstate systems. As a result, we know human trafficking is happening in Iowa and that it occurs in a variety of settings,” said Iowa Department of Public Safety Commissioner Stephan Bayens. “Together we can prevent this from happening in our state, because even one victim is one too many.”

The Sioux City Police Department was also involved, assisting operations conducted in Nebraska by providing detectives to help support the sharing of intelligence and surveillance.

“We conduct sting operations to address human trafficking, but as a municipal law enforcement agency, we are limited in our range to our jurisdiction of Sioux City. As this is an issue that affects the tri-state region of Siouxland, this provided us a unique opportunity to work in partnership with Nebraska and federal law enforcement agencies to investigate a crime that affects our entire community,” stated the SCPD in a statement to KTIV.

Nebraska law enforcement conducted sex trafficking operations in three locations, including Scottsbluff, Kearney and South Sioux City. During which, among other arrests, a man was arrested for seeking to purchase sex acts with a 15-year-old girl who was actually an undercover police officer.

While in South Dakota, authorities conducted their operation during this month’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The other nine states part of the operation were Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

5 arrested after undercover human trafficking, prostitution operation in Robeson County, NC

ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. (WPDE) — During an undercover operation on Friday, Oct. 1 five men were arrested in Robeson County and charged with solicitation of prostitution.

The Sheriff’s Office said the operation was to identify potential victims of human trafficking and persons engaging in illegal prostitution. 

The identified females were given the opportunity to speak with Sheriff Burnis Wilkins, Sgt. Hollis McNeill and a Peer Support Specialist from Robeson Health Care Corporation (RHCC) about a variety of programs that will assist them with fighting their addictions and improving their lifestyles.

While this seems small to some, this special operation would bring tears to your eyes if you could have heard these ladies stories,” officials said. “The best part is, we are helping them. To the guys seeking to use females that are battling their own demons, go somewhere else. That lady you may be speaking to might just be an undercover officer as some saw last night.

According to a release, Francisco Hidalgo Tixteco, 44, Mica Mcdonald, 43, Luis Miguel Hidalgo, 24, of Raeford and Henry Stephens, 65, of St. Pauls were arrested and charged with misdemeanor solicitation of prostitution. They were each placed in the custody of the Robeson County Detention Center with a $1,000 secured bond. 

Charles Wall, 45, of Raeford was arrested and charged with solicitation of prostitution, possession of stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Wall was placed in the custody of the Robeson County Detention Center with a $15,000 secured bond.

“I am excited about the newly developed partnership with the Robeson County District’s Attorney Office, Robeson County Judges and other agencies in the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program,” Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said. “The program allows individuals with low-level offenses to enter alternative programs instead of going through the prosecution process and receiving active sentences. The programs will allow the individuals to seek help for their addictions and reduce recidivism in our criminal justice system. The Sheriff’s Office currently has two (2) deputies assigned to the program and will soon be adding a Peer Specialist. The benefits of the program have already been seen and there will be many more success stories to come.”

Lumberton Police Department, Fayetteville Police Department and Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) assisted with the operation.

Anyone with information about human trafficking and/or illegal prostitution is asked to contact the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 671-3170 or (910) 671-3100.

Mother attempts to sell her kids on Facebook at a bargain price of just $4000

Published Mon, Mar 11 2013 10:46 PM CDTUpdated Tue, Nov 3 2020 12:24 PM CST

Even though this was a whie ago, I wanted to share it with you because it just shows that Facebook has known about the Human Trafficking problem on their platform a very long time! Still nobody has done a thing to stop it! It is simply ignored!

Facebook is used for a million and one things these days, but child trafficking – you’d think not. Misty VanHorn, a mother of two in Oklahoma has tried to sell her two children on Facebook. She was arrested on the weekend for alleged trafficking of minors on Facebook, trying to sell her 10-month-old and 2-year-old for $4000.

Mother attempts to sell her kids on Facebook at a bargain price of just $4000 | TweakTown.com

VanHorn reportedly offered the kids up for sale more than once, offering her innocent 10-month-old girl for $1000. Alternatively, you could buy a package deal which included both kids for $4000, where she actually had someone interested. VanHorn was dealing with a woman in Fort Smith, Ark., according to The Oklahoman. Because she was dealing across the state line from her home in Sallisaw, she might be charged with a federal crime.

Her Facebook message to the Fort Smith-based woman said: Just come to Sallisaw, it’s only 30 minutes away and I’ll give you all of her stuff and let y’all have her forever for $1,000. Why was VanHorn trying to sell her children? She wanted the $1000 to bail her boyfriend out of jail, where ironically she’s being held on a $40,000 bail. Her kids are now in the custody of the state’s department of human services, who alerted the police in the first place.

Could Apple Pull Facebook App Over Human Trafficking?

Apple could pull Facebook from App Store over human trafficking

Facebook knows about the human trafficking epidemic on its platform, Apple knows, and now is threatening to pull the app down.

Published Sat, Sep 18 2021 9:11 PM CDTUpdated Mon, Sep 20 2021 12:02 AM CDT

Facebook has found itself in another mess, this one being one of the most under-reported, and one of the worst stories from the Mark Zuckerberg-led social media network.

In a new report by The Wall Street Journal, Facebook has been well aware of a massive human trafficking service on its platform and has done nothing about it. Apple got a little mad at Facebook over it at least, threatening to pull the Facebook app from its App Store after a 2019 report from the BBC said that human traffickers were selling people using Facebook.

Selling people on Facebook. Just thought I’d repeat that.

The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that it has seen documents that said a Facebook investigation team was tracking down a human trafficking market in the Middle East, where they were using Facebook to sell people. The groups were advertising domestic workers through employment agencies, but they were supplying human beings against their will… on Facebook.

At the time, Apple threatened — but obviously didn’t in the end — to pull Facebook from its App Store. An internal memo describes that Facebook knew about the human trafficking epidemic on its service all the way back before 2019. There was a question on the report that the Facebook researcher wrote, asking: “was this issue known to Facebook before BBC inquiry and Apple escalation?

The answer: “Yes. Throughout 2018 and H1 2019 we conducted the global Understanding Exercise in order to fully understand how domestic servitude manifests no our platform across its entire life cycle: recruitment, facilitation, and exploitation“.

The Wall Street Journal has no comment from Apple and Facebook of course, but remember that Apple cares deeply about this type of stuff. That’s why they’re monitoring all US users of their iPhones for CSAM, or Child Sex Abuse Material, for the safety of the children. Yet, not removing the Facebook app that is clearly trafficking human beings in countless countries.

Furthermore, the WSJ also reported this week that Facebook’s own AI content moderators are unable to detect most languages used on Facebook. How the hell is that even happening? Facebook’s AI and all their might and money and staff, cannot find people in every single language on the planet (as Facebook is used pretty much in every single written language on Earth) to translate what is being said on their own social media platform.

They’re actually blaming the lack of resources on this huge blind spot of human trafficking… really?!

I mean, they’ve got teams and teams of people that seemed to be working 24/7 during 2016-2020 when President Trump and his supporters were being banned and censored left, right, and center. They go after anti-vaxxers like they’re the literal devil, yet child and human trafficking seems to be beyond an afterthought for Facebook.

Facebook should be banned across the world immediately, right?

New study examines federal human trafficking prosecutions over the last 20 years

New study examines federal human trafficking prosecutions over the last 20 years

Local, state and national leaders joined forces for the annual Human Trafficking Summit on Tuesday.

I-Team Investigator Kylie McGivern met with the author of a groundbreaking study that looked at every federal criminal human trafficking prosecution over the last 20 years. It shows how far we’ve come, and what still needs to be done to protect victims.

MORE COVERAGE: I-TEAM INVESTIGATIONS – SEX TRAFFICKING

The Human Trafficking Instituteprovides expert knowledge of training and research to police and prosecutors to help stop traffickers. 

Co-author of the Federal Human Trafficking Report Alyssa Wheeler said she was surprised to see, despite COVID delays in the criminal justice system, the number of federal human trafficking cases filed is up.

“Florida did file 12 new cases and the national average, if you just do a real general average, was three,” Wheeler said.

That number may not reflect the scope of human trafficking, but how often federal prosecutors are pursuing these cases.

“And I would say that in Florida, a positive surprise is that restitution has continued — the percentage of cases in which a judge ordered restitution has continued to rise as well, and is actually above the national average,” Wheeler said.

In Florida, it was 67% of the cases in 2020. The national average is 50%.

“Restitution is one of our top priorities at HTI because it is the money that a convicted trafficker is forced to pay their victims to compensate their victims for the harm that was caused. It is essential for survivors to be able to rebuild their lives after being trafficked and escape the cycle of exploration that can be really hard to get out of,” Wheeler said.

There was an increase in federal cases filed, however, the conviction rate nationwide went down.

The I-Team has reported on the challenges of securing a conviction, including the evidence needed to prove someone was forced or trapped. There is also a heavy reliance on a survivor willing to testify against the trafficking.

Wheeler said she would like to see more efforts directed to going after businesses and corporations.

“Last year, there were only two entities in the U.S. that were being prosecuted for trafficking, both of them were hotels,” she said. “I would really love to see an increase in the number of corporations that are prosecuted for forced labor in particular, but trafficking in general.”

Operation Ohio Knows: Attorney General Dave Yost announces arrests human trafficking operation

State officials have revealed details of a statewide human trafficking operation that resulted in the arrest of 161 people seeking to buy sex (including three who wanted sex from minors) along with the recovery of 10 missing children.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost offered details of the operation alongside multiple law enforcement agencies during a Monday press conference. He said those arrested include a city council member, a firefighter, a teacher, a professor, a home improvement contractor and a pilot.

“He [pilot] not only was purchasing sex, but he haggled and got the price down to $15,” Yost said.

Yost added that human trafficking is happening all across Ohio.

“Poor neighborhoods. Rich neighborhoods. Educated. Uneducated. Black. White. It doesn’t matter. It happens everywhere,” he said. “That’s why this fight is so important. I will not rest until no one in Ohio buys or sells human beings.”

Mandie Knight, a survivor of the sex trade, also spoke at the briefing. She is now a wife and mother who is studying forensic criminology, and lauded the role law enforcement played in her recovery.

“When I was being trafficked, I knew that law enforcement was somewhere I could turn to when I needed a safe way out, and that’s what happened,” Knight, now resource manager for Freedom a la Cart, said. “Had I not been arrested, had I not gone to jail, and had I not suffered some consequences for the decisions I was making, I wouldn’t be here today and I wouldn’t be as successful in life.”

The press conference also revealed that 50 people were arrested for offering to sell sex. We streamed the press conferenc

PLEASE, KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE

PLEASE, KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE

With the birth of Social Media and the Internet being available in every household, the ability to monitoring your children has become more difficult.

Nowadays, everyone has access to a mobile phone, no matter the age. I wonder how many parents actually know how to use the Child Safety features and Parental Controls on the devices. How many actually bother to check their kids devices or even have a talk with them about safety and grooming ?!

The world out there is more dangerous than you can even imagine. Children go missing EVERY DAY, children are abused EVERY DAY, children are murdered EVERY DAY.

Did You Know That Pedophiles Actually Have A Manual On How To Groom Children?

There are various “grooming guides” floating around online and amongst predators.  Officials say most are amateur, but a handful are frighteningly slick.

Please educate yourselves, it could be what saves your child or someone elses child.

The 170-page guide teaches pedophiles how to target your children

RESEARCH AND LEARN HOW TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD don’t hide from what’s unsavory to hear, because is too much to listen to, or too painful to see. Think of all those poor kids abducted every single day, being torture and simply having to comply or die. They do not get a choice, they do not get to say wait, stop, slow down, be more gentle, because if they speak up, it will be much worse !

Please, protect ALL CHILDREN by learning what happens and how to prevent it from happening, educate the kids on how to stay safe and what to look out for. It’s important to have this talk with them, because the world we live in, is far from what you think it is.

Education leads to awareness, awareness in turn disrupts the demand as the perpetrators can no longer follow the pattern and in turn will start to make mistakes and reveal themselves.

Help us to get rid of the evils of our world.

Federal agents want you to know that they “grooming guides” are out there. These guides teach pedophiles how to target your children

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) –  Ever heard of a “grooming guide”?  We hadn’t either.  Federal agents want that to change.  They want all parents to know these vile guides are out there, teaching predators how to get to your kids.

There are various “grooming guides” floating around online and amongst predators.  Officials say most are amateur, but a handful are frighteningly slick.  WBTV obtained one of the more in-depth ones.  A 170-page manual full of simplified lessons written by a convicted pedophile.  As the big warning page on the front will tell you, this particular guide is a step-by-step “how-to” in which one predator, who goes by the name “The Mule”, lists the best ways to start long-term sexual relationships with a 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 year old.

“It’s a sickness and a depravity level I can’t even comprehend,” says Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Special Agent in Charge Brock Nicholson.  His office is well aware of these guides and tracks these criminals.  “We call them predators but at the end of the day, they are child rapists. Flat out. That’s what they’re doing.  It’s sickening . [In the guide] they try to convince others with the same mindset that what they’re thinking is NOT wrong, that it is society who is wrong.  The guide says this is the ultimate expression of how to love a child.”

Where do you find a guide like this?  Sadly, it’s not hard.

“This guide literally sold on Amazon for awhile,” said Nicholson.  “These guides and similar guides are posted on websites.”

This particular guide goes into great detail on the difference in how to have sex with a toddler versus a kindergartner.  It lays out specific word-for-word dialogues you can have with children to make them think the experiences are all okay.  But the most stunning section might be where the guide teaches predators to get in with parents first, in order to get to their kids.

“It’s not the ‘stranger-danger’ you might be thinking of,” said Nicholson, who has worked a number of these cases in his 25+ year career with I.C.E.  “It’s teachers, coaches, ministers, politicians, even law enforcement.  It’s every walk of life, every race.  It’s usually men acting as the predators, though not always.”

For example, the guide says, “If you have kids in your family, but you do not yet have a close relationship, it might be a good idea to carefully start to visit those people and start to show a friendly interest in that particular family.  But do start carefully and try not to make it too obvious, like going straight for their kids and play – build up trust and friendship with the parents over a period of time, and see where this takes you.”

Babysitting, the guide says, will sometimes provide the opportunity for “sleepovers”.  If that doesn’t work, the guide tells predators to “establish a playgroup”, “establish a sports group”, “run a summer or winter camp” or “run an orphan home”.

In another section of the guide, the author, who again is a convicted pedophile, lists the four important advantages that provide some “fundamental assets for every adult who are searching for child and child love:  1) The advantage of owning an animal, 2) The advantage of searching in poor communities, 3) The advantage of finding sad and lonely children and 4) The advantage of using schools as starting points.”

“Getting yourself an animal should be the very first thing to consider if you are serious about finding a child love candidate,” the guide states.  “Either if you plan to have the children come to your home or searching outdoors.  Animals are what we like to call child magnets.”

Nicholson said about six months ago he found out child predators sometimes identify themselves by a particular piece of jewelry or tattoo.

“When I discovered this,” he said, “it totally blew me away!  Much like we see in gang members, they have their own signs of who they are.  With boys, if they like boys, they have a triangle within a triangle.  If they like young girls, they have a heart within a heart.  Either tattooed or worn as a necklace or a bracelet.  Then, when they’re encountered, they’ll tell law enforcement, ‘Oh, this belonged to my daughter who died years ago and I wear it for that reason…’.”

To get another opinion on the “grooming guide”, we sent it to Dr. Sharon Cooper, an expert in diagnosing child sexual abuse.  She’s a Forensic Pediatrician and Consultant for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children who is based in Chapel Hill, but is widely regarded across the nation for her books, lectures and work on individual cases.

“It’s highly detailed and extremely disturbing,” said Cooper.  “What this pedophile suggests in the guide would work.  This kind of rewarding of a child on a reoccurring basis, in telling them how important they are, that would make a child respond – especially young children.”

America First Legal — America First Legal FOIAs HHS, ICE Over Reckless Release of Unaccompanied Alien Children into the Hands of Human Traffickers and Smugglers

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, American First Legal (AFL) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking documents from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) related to the influx of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAE) being released into the country. The FOIA seeks information regarding any communication between the two agencies in relation to the sponsors to whom HHS releases children, the extent to which HHS follows up with the sponsors to see if the UAC are still with their sponsor, and the extent to which the UAC appears for immigration hearings.

According to Bloomberg Law, the Biden Administration has released children from government custody to labor traffickers who sent them to work in agricultural processing facilities in numerous cities. This disastrous maneuver comes as the humanitarian crisis along the southwest border continues to worsen and as the Biden Administration seeks to blame everyone except themselves.

CBP’s data shows that prior to the recent surge of Haitians arriving in Del Rio, encounters of illegal aliens have remained at an all-time high. This is yet another data point that shows the Administration’s misguided pandering to open-border left-wing radicals is creating a crisis that is overwhelming our immigration system. The Administration’s policies are incentivizing human trafficking and smuggling at a staggering level, resulting in children being abandoned along the border to be found, hopefully in time, by U.S. Border Patrol.

Even more tragically, this is a problem that we have known about for years. In 2014 we learnedthat the Obama Administration released children to human traffickers who took them off to serve as child labor. Under the Biden Administration’s leadership, these same, horrific, and entirely predictable and preventable problems have returned. Yet HHS continues to avoid any responsibility for the fate of the children they turn over to cartel traffickers.

Statement From former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker: 

Yet again, the Biden Administration is showing a blatant lack of respect for American sovereignty and the rule of law. The number of illegal unaccompanied minors flooding into our country shatters all precedent. Make no mistake: this administration knows full well the dangers that can befall these migrant children at the hands of human traffickers — assault, slave labor, sex trafficking, etc. We have seen — outlined in the press — reports of migrant children turned over to labor traffickers who forced them into modern day slavery. Yet, that has not deterred the Biden Administration from releasing unaccompanied alien children from HHS custody to individuals who have completed insufficient background checks, who oftentimes lack lawful status, and who will not ensure that the children appear in immigration court. In effect, the Biden Administration is facilitating — not combatting — the criminal smuggling of alien minors. For the Biden Administration, all that matters is that they get them out of their custody as quickly as possible. America First Legal is demanding — and will get — answers,” Matthew Whitaker said.
