Olympic swimmer files sexual abuse lawsuit, claims USA Swimming ignored matter

Smith alleges Hutchison began ‘grooming’ her when she was just 13 before molesting her when she was 16. She contends that USA Swimming was aware of the allegations in 2010 yet did nothing when confronted with the claims, per the New York Times.

Last February, USA Swimming stated that they investigated the alleged abuse in 2010 but dropped the matter when Smith and Hutchison “unequivocally denied the existence of a romantic or physical relationship” – an investigation which her lawyer has since referred to as a “sham”.

By doing nothing, it enabled Sean to abuse me for a decade,” Smith said in a statement released Monday.

USA Swimming swiftly responded, saying: “As expressed earlier this year, we respect Ariana Kukors’ bravery in stepping forward and sharing her story. We have been in regular contact with her legal team over the last several months and will continue to work with them and Ariana through this process.”

Hutchison, via his lawyer Brad Meryhew, acknowledged the accusations on Monday but said that he had no comment on the matter.

However, in February Meryhew said that his client had been involved in a “committed relationship” with Smith, adding that they had lived together for more than a year following the 2012 Olympics.

Smith’s lawsuit also names USA Swimming coach Mark Schubert, claiming that he was aware of rumors surrounding Smith and Hutchison but made no attempt to report the inappropriate relationship.

At a press conference on Monday, Smith said that she had not been fully able to process what had happened between her and Hutchison until this year.

The entire time that we were in a ‘relationship,’ I was 15. It was a man who held my Olympic dream in the palm of his hand. He programmed me,” she said.

The allegations against USA Swimming come in the wake of the conviction of Larry Nassar, a doctor who was found to have engaged in a wide-ranging series of abuses of young gymnasts. He has been sentenced to between 40 and 175 years in prison.

Manhattan Editor: Schneiderman’s Drunken Sexual Abuse Was an ‘Open Secret’

TUCKER CARLSON: Seth Barron is Associate Editor of City Journal. He predicted, in public, on Twitter, that Schneiderman would be exposed as a creep, and he said it last November.

Yesterday, he tweeted this: “How did I know this and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio didn’t?”

Great question. We’ve asked him to come on and explain. Seth Barron joins us tonight.

Seth, how did you know that? That was a remarkably prescient tweet.

SETH BARRON: Thanks, Tucker. You know, to me, it was just kind of, I thought it was just an open secret. I’d heard stories and rumors about Schneiderman for years.

I’d been told by least three or four different people since maybe 2009 that he is into rough sex with women, that he likes to date his staffers and is a little pushy with them, that he tried to kidnap a reporter and wouldn’t let her out of his car on the way to — he said he was taking her to his apartment.

CARLSON: Geez.

BARRON: So I sort of assumed that this was just, you know, common knowledge, more or less. Now I’m not deeply involved in Albany politics or in New York City Democratic circles. I’m an editor for a moderately conservative magazine.

CARLSON: So you’re not exactly in the loop at the highest levels of progressive New York, is what you’re saying.

BARRON: No, no, exactly. So that’s why it seemed strange that everyone was saying, “Oh my God, this is the craziest thing we’ve ever heard.”

CARLSON: But it’s clearly not. I mean, so you raise a really, I think, central question, which is, if you heard about it, is it plausible that the Governor of the state, one of his closest allies, presumably one of his closest friends, had never heard of it?

BARRON: It seems implausible to me. I mean, it seems implausible to me that any elected official in New York State hadn’t heard it.

I don’t know what I can say. I mean, Andrew Cuomo has been steeped in New York State politics for 40 years. He basically has a private army. He keeps tabs on everything and everyone. He’s extraordinarily paranoid.

CARLSON: Yes, I know.

BARRON: So I would imagine that he would know everything that everybody’s up to at all times.

CARLSON: He’s a thoroughly bizarre person. I’ve dealt with him. No, that’s exactly the word that comes to mind, and I don’t use it lightly. He’s paranoid. He’s a control person, there’s no doubt.

So this is a little strange though, because Schneiderman was the Attorney General. He wasn’t just some functionary. He wasn’t the night city editor at the Daily News. I mean, he was the chief law enforcement officer of the state. So if there was the suggestion that he kidnapped somebody, you would think that one of his peers would follow up on it.

BARRON: Well, you might think so. But at the same time, the New York State Attorney General has unique powers, and is an immensely powerful figure. I don’t think any attorney general in the — any state attorney general across the country — has the power that you New York Attorney General does.

However, if you noticed over the past few years in New York State and New York City, there’s been a lot of corruption investigations.

CARLSON: Yes.

BARRON: But he has not been leading them. They’ve all been largely done by the feds. There’s trials going on in Albany right now over — Sheldon Silver’s going to be retried. A number of Cuomo’s associates just were — Joe Percoco was just convicted. This was federal. And in New York City, investigations of Bill de Blasio were largely being done by the federal government.

CARLSON: It’s kind of funny. Meanwhile, this guy’s suing everyone about global warming. (Laughs) I get it,

BARRON: Global warming, or coming up with ways to have pardon-proof indictments of Trump associates, or suing the vitamin industry. Yeah.

CARLSON: Meanwhile, the cesspool around him goes unaddressed. Seth, thank you for that dispatch from New York. Not heartening, But fascinating.

BARRON: Thanks, Tucker.

Graphic Ads Depicting What Some Would Consider Borderline Child Abuse, Would You?



Next Story

Most mothers know just how hard it is to resist cravings during pregnancy, and while it’s okay to give in every now and then (I mean seriously, chocolate chip cookies are awesome), it’s important to consider the health of your little one.

While you should increase your food intake during pregnancy to ensure both you and the baby are getting the nutrients you need, this does not mean you should eat whatever you want.

One woman on Baby Center begged for advice on how to limit her junk food intake. One member said:

My first pregnancy I also craved junk food the entire time! Very not healthy and I ended up with edema and other problems causing me to have to be in the hospital for weeks and to deliver a month early. I would recommend that when you get a craving satisfy it in small doses. If you feel like pizza eat a slice or two, not the whole pie. If you are craving a burger or those yummy fast food fries get a small order not a supersize one. Everything’s okay in moderation so don’t beat up on yourself. I’m 6 wks pg now and I keep healthy snacks around and eat them before I get real hungry. So far that’s helped stave off the cravings. I’m also less tempted to hit the drive thrus when my kitchen is stocked at home. Just remember it will be over eventually…

This is great advice, but from reading further I realized that most mothers were inquiring because they were concerned about weight gain, not the effects these foods have on their baby.

I’m sure you’re familiar with the phrase “you are what you eat,” but have you ever thought of it this way — “Your child is what you eat“?

The campaign, created for the Brazilian Pediatric Society of Rio Grande, SPRS, was made to highlight how a woman’s nutrition during pregnancy can have lasting effects on her child’s health.

you-are-what-you-eat-INLINE1b

In a report published in the journal Genome Biology, researchers searched the genome to determine how outside influences such as diet, nutrition, and environmental exposures affect a developing fetus.

By focusing on a specific variant in a gene involved in suppressing tumours, asssociate professor of pediatrics and molecular and human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, Robert Waterland and his team found that healthy diets of pregnant mothers can result in babies developing a gene variant that protects against cancer.

Breast-Ads-Brazil-01

Each advert states:

“Your habits in the first thousand days of gestation can prevent your child from developing serious diseases.”

“At least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables a day, including fresh, frozen, tinned and dried fruit and vegetables, and no more than one 150ml glass of 100% unsweetened juice,” suggest NHS.

Another study published in The FASEB Journal, led by Bev Mühlhäusler and completed by the University of Adelaide, suggests that “moms-to-be who eat junk food during their pregnancies have already programmed their babies to be addicted to a high fat, high sugar diet by the time they are weaned.” They found “from laboratory studies that a junk food diet during pregnancy and lactation desensitized the normal reward system fueled by these highly palatable foods.”

Bev Mühlhäusler reminds mothers and mothers-to-be that this information isn’t meant to scare those who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding but to inform them of the possibly dangerous outcomes junk food has on their bodies and the bodies of their babies:

The take-home message for women is that eating large amounts of junk food during pregnancy and while breastfeeding will have long-term consequences for their child’s preference for these foods, which will ultimately have negative effects on their health.

It’s important to monitor the state of your child while breastfeeding. You may find that certain foods cause a reaction, or that when you are pregnant, you can’t seem to keep down the same foods you always craved and enjoyed.

Pregnancy can be a miraculous phase in a woman’s life and offers many opportunities for self improvement. It demands that you become more self-aware and more considerate, because your decisions are no longer just about you — they are about your little loved one, too.

“Love and affection are vital, but it is important to educate and inform mothers about the procedures necessary for proper nutrition and baby care.”

– From the SPRS website discussing the first thousand days of a baby’s life.

Nets Spend 13 Mins on Stormy, Ignore House Dem Accused of ‘Child Sex Abuse’

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that Democratic Congressman Tony Cardenas (CA) had named himself as the mystery defendant in a Los Angeles County court filing late last week. The Congressman was accused of fondling a then 16-year-old girl while she was being transported to a hospital for medical treatment. It’s a disturbing allegation that got absolutely ZERO time on the evening broadcasts of ABC, CBS, NBC and the Spanish-language networks of Telemundo and Univision.

In contrast, the big three networks dedicated a combined 13 minutes and 35 seconds to the latest Stormy Daniels-related news. The networks were so enthralled with the Daniels story that they all led their evening broadcasts with it. Individually, ABC’s World News Tonight gave it the most attention with six minutes, 23 seconds while the CBS Evening News had four minutes, 17 seconds of coverage and NBC Nightly News had the least with two minutes, 55 seconds.

The time totals included coverage of the revelation President Trump knew about the “hush money” payment and a related story that investigators were monitoring the phones of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

The accusations against Cardenas dated back to 2007 and are disturbing, He also vehemently denied the allegations made against him. “My client is sickened and distraught by these horrific allegations, which are 100%, categorically untrue,” his lawyer, Patricia Glaser said. She did say they “respect victims” who come forward to “call out misconduct when it has actually occurred.”

The court filing, which was first reported by the Los Angeles Times, alleges that “John Doe” first met the plaintiff in 2005 at a golf tournament when she was 14 and subsequently became a close friend of her family’s,The Post reported. “Two years later, the document claims, he fondled her breasts and genitals while driving her to the emergency room after the two played golf at Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles.

The paper reports the girl was being rushed to the hospital after ingesting a cup of water that “tasted distinctly different from both tap and filtered water” and eventually collapsing. “The suit claims the actions constituted childhood sexual abuse under California law because she was under 18 at the time. The plaintiff asked for unspecified damages and a jury trial,The Post added. “He was a member of the council at the time of the alleged abuse.

And according to The Post, Cardenas had been reaching out to his Democratic colleagues and pressing his innocence:

Cárdenas has been calling colleagues in recent days about the lawsuit and telling them he is innocent, according to a House Democratic aide. The three-term congressman is the chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’s political action committee. Two other House Democratic aides confirmed that Cárdenas has been contacting colleagues about the lawsuit.

It’s disappointing that the networks would put chasing the shiny object ahead of a serious allegation against a sitting member of Congress. Although, all three did cover the 27 new women who had come forward with allegations against former CBS and PBS host Charlie Rose.

Baby Alfie’s Case Proves Kidnapping & Child Abuse Are Allowed When Gov’t Calls it ‘Health Care’

abuseabuse

The case of Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old boy who died after the UK government ordered doctors to withdraw life support, is a reminder that not only does universal healthcare come with dangerous consequences, but that if it was Alfie’s parents—and not the government—who ordered their son to be deprived of food and water until he died, they would be arrested and charged with child abuse.

Alfie was born with a rare degenerative neurological condition that left him in a semi-vegetative state, and his parents initially took him to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital because he was suffering from seizures. Doctors determined that keeping Alfie on life support would not be “in his best interest” in December 2017, and his parents fought back, which resulted in a fierce legal over the course of the next few months.

Alfie’s parents begged for the right to take him to Italy to pursue extended treatment, and his case was ruled against by the high court in London, denied by the Supreme Court and ultimately rejected by the European Court of Human Rights on March 28.

After Justice Hayden with the high court in London endorsed an end-of-life care plan for Alfie on April 11, Alfie’s father flew to Rome to meet with Pope Francis on April 18. The Pope spoke was vocal about his support for Alfie’s continued treatment and he said that he was renewing his appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted.”

Alfie was granted Italian citizenship on April 23, in an attempt to legally transfer him to Italy for extended treatment. The Italian ministry of foreign affairs released a statement saying, “The Italian government hopes that in this way, being an Italian citizen will enable the immediate transfer of the child to Italy.”

But it was too late. Doctors withdrew Alfie’s life support on the same day, and he survived on his own without food and water for more than four days before he died on April 28, just 11 days before his 2nd birthday.

Many of the critics who look at Alfie’s case argue that he was “as good as dead,” and that the trip to Italy for more treatment could have killed him. While they may have a point, there is a much bigger factor at play in this story.

When the courts in the UK determined that there was no point in continuing to keep Alfie alive, they took away any rights his parents had to attempt to save his life, and they assumed control over whether he lived or died.

The United States is often criticized because it is the “only highly developed country in the world without universal healthcare,” and critics insist that state-run healthcare is necessary to save the lives of babies. But what many do not realize is that when socialized medicine is implemented, it gives the government omnipotent control over the health of its citizens, and the ability to decide whether they live or die.

Not only did the government make it illegal for Alfie’s parents to attempt to provide life-saving treatment for their son, but police in the UK also threatened to arrest citizens who criticized the case on social media—serving as a reminder of why it is so incredibly important for Americans to defend their First and the Second Amendment rights.

If parents refused to seek out life-saving medical care for their children, and if they then went on to deprive their children of food, water, and oxygen until they died, they would be charged with child abuse. But when the government does it, it is called health care.

Alfie Evans is just one example of the many children who are denied treatment that could save their lives—not because their government doesn’t have universal healthcare, but because it does and it has decided that their lives are not worth it, and their parents have no rights.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

Another Hollywood Arrest: This Time It Involves Sexual Abuse of Children & Trafficking



Next Story

It’s not nice to write of such topics as discussed in this article, but it’s something we’ve been trying to help expose since Collective Evolution began. Elite level child trafficking cults that brainwash women and young children is a reality, and it’s something that we have to raise awareness about and shed some light on.

A lot of attention and awareness has been created on the abuse of women in Hollywood lately, and many other places, like politics and also within the military industrial complex, and sometimes it’s hard to believe how all of them aren’t somehow connected.

 For example. U.S. representative, Cynthia McKinney, was well aware of the corruption that was going on within DynCorp, and she actually addressed it in 2005. She grilled former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, on the government’s involvement and compliance with military contractor DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children. She was brave enough to bring it up. More than a decade later, Retired Army General James Grazioplene, who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, is currently facing six rape charges.

There are more examples later in the article.

Unfortunately, there is always big money behind this type of thing as well as keeping it covered up and secretive at all costs.

As with most things that receive public attention from mainstream media (even though it’s the other way around, it’s more like mainstream media deciding what receives public attention), we probably won’t get all of the details, and all of the people involved in this scandal won’t be known.

This time, it’s an older story, but new details have emerged and it involved a man named Keith Raniere, and his company called NXIVM, supposedly offering “executive success programs,” whatever that means.

Raniere was arrested in March 2018 in Mexico on charges of sex trafficking.

He is accused of raping girls as young as 12, imprisoning a woman for 18 months and more, he is currently in federal custody in New York. This is all over the internet, the Sun goes a little more into his background.

The new details are as follows: a according to the charges, Smallville actress Allison Mack was a member of the cult and worked in a management position. Keep in mind, she was also probably brainwashed, who really knows? Many of the victimizers are also victims themselves, but that’s something society fails to see at the moment. Right now, we’re constantly judging and punishing, instead of really looking into things deeper in order to solve the real problems here.

According to The Free Thought Project, Mack’s job was to “lure women into the programs under the pretense of female empowerment and self-help workshops, to then convince them to sign up for a more “advanced program” called Dominus Obsequious Sororium, which required these women to basically turn the lives over to cult leader Keith Raniere. Dominus Obsequious Sororium is a quasi-Latin phrase that roughly translates to “Master Over the Slave Women.”

Despite the fact that we really need to have more discussions around these topics and how to approach the safe disclosure of them all, it’s good to see some exposure, because it helps those who are currently facing experiences that nobody should experience.

It’s worrisome to think that the report aired by NBC of Hillary Clinton covering up an elite level pedophile ring might be true, especially when people from within have also accused the Clinton’s, and others, of engaging in such activities with minors.

And to think that the UK government & Catholic Church have stated that these youngsters can ‘consent’ is even more disturbing, and if you dive into what’s happening with the Vatican and child sexual abuse claims, it’s enough to overwhelm your mind, but it’s important to write about, because it gets no attention.

The fact that this type of thing doesn’t receive the attention it deserves, is no mystery, mainstream media is a government/corporate organization, they are directly interconnected with the military industrial complex, and this is evident by their relationship with intelligence agencies, and mass propaganda when it comes to major events, like what’s happening in Syria.

The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.9 million human trafficking victims worldwide and 4.5 million people trapped in forced sex trafficking around the globe. At least 100,000 children are prostituted annually in the U.S., adding to the $9.8 billion U.S. sex trafficking industry.

NXIVM can now be added to those statistics,  the organisation has been described as a “cult” in which women were allegedly branded, blackmailed and brainwashed.

What’s the Take-Away Message Here?

The take-away message of such information should not be a reaction of disgust and judgement, but there is a lesson here, and that’s to realize that there are some ‘dark’ experiences happening in our world,and this is just one of many. The point is, we tend to cower from them, and refuse to accept them as truth, simply because it’s too much for our mind to handle.

This may not be such a case, but even today elite level cults like this that abuse young children are branded as a conspiracy theory.

If you don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine, but to deny the reality entirely is really not helping those who are involved, and only helping those who are in charge of this type of thing

We already receive a lot of ‘negativity’ from the media, it seems there are no major ‘feel-good’ stories that we get. Some people say it’s because it doesn’t make for goodT.V., but more are starting to say that there is reason we are fed so much fear.

That’s another story, like 1984.

Perhaps the world isn’t in as much chaos as is portrayed? I believe that’s 100 percent true, but that doesn’t mean these ‘dark’ things are not a reality.

As a human race we have to move towards transparency. Secrecy is only needed because people engage in acts that go against any human beings inner moral compass, including their own.

Secrecy is not needed in a completely moral society, and I believe many people are experiencing moral shifts themselves. At the end of the day, these are human beings directing these ‘dark’ things, perhaps not in all cases (lol), but in many…Imagine what a shift in his or her heart could do, it could unravel a major part of that ‘dark’ program…

The lesson here is understand it’s ok to fell the disbelief and fear you feel, but there are a lot of good things about our planet and the people on it too.

Something to think about…

1,000 children may have been victims in UK’s biggest ever child abuse scandal

Lucy Lowe

    

Up to 1,000 children could have been abused in Britain’s biggest ever child abuse scandal, an investigation has revealed.

Hundreds of children, some as young as 11, are estimated to have been drugged, beaten and raped over a 40-year period in the town of Telford.

Lucy Allan, the Conservative MP for Telford, has called for an inquiry into child sexual exploitation, saying the latest reports were “extremely serious and shocking”. She has previously called for a “Rotherham-style inquiry” into the allegations.

“There must now be an independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Telford so that our community can have absolute confidence in the authorities,” she told the Sunday Mirror.

The investigation claims that allegations dating back to the 1980s were mishandled by authorities in Telford, who repeatedly failed to punish a network of abusers.

Victims claimed that similar abuse, which has been linked to three murders and two other deaths, has continued in the area.

Lucy Allan

    

The newspaper’s probe alleges that social workers were aware of the abuse in the 1990s, but that it took police a decade to launch Operation Chalice, an inquiry into child prostitution in the Telford area in which seven men were jailed.

It is also claimed that abused and trafficked children were considered “prostitutes” by council staff, that authorities did not keep details of abusers from Asian communities for fear of being accused of “racism” and that police failed to investigate one recent case five times until an MP intervened.

A spokesperson for Telford and Wrekin Council told the Sunday Mirror: “Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a vile, evil crime. It’s an issue right across the UK and has been for a long time.

“Telford will be covered by the national CSE review. We welcome this. All agencies continue to work very closely together and this remains our top priority.”

Dino Nocivelli, a specialist child abuse solicitor, told the paper: “These children were treated as sexual commodities by men who inflicted despicable acts of abuse. The survivors deserve an inquiry.

“They need to know how abuse took place for so long and why so many perpetrators have never been brought to justice.”

The estimate of 1,000 potential victims was made with the help of Professor Liz Kelly, from the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit at London Metropolitan University, who reviewed the Mirror‘s figures.

Twelve victims spoke to the newspaper and accused more than 70 abusers. One, a 14-year-old, said that she became pregnant twice and had two abortions while being groomed and abused.

“Hours after my second termination, I was taken by one of my abusers to be raped by more men”, she said.

“Night after night, I was forced to have sex with multiple men in disgusting takeaways and filthy houses. I must have been getting the morning after pill from a local clinic at least twice a week but no one asked any questions.

“I was told that if I said a word to anyone they’d come for my little sisters and tell my mum I was a prostitute.”

Another victim, aged 14 at the time, alleges that she had the baby of her 18-year-old abuser. Now 47, she said that she told the council and school of her abuse at the time but does not believe action was taken.

A report commissioned by the council in 2013 acknowledged that “professionals had concerns about the nature of some of the child sexual abuse cases presented to them” from the late 1990s.

Two other investigations were launched alongside Operation Chalice after two victims named dozens more abusers, yet victims have claimed that they were put off helping inquiries.

One said that she left the investigation because she was not “emotionally supported” by the police. The other claimed officers deterred her from pursuing her request for evidence after they learnt she had contacted the paper.

Martin Evans, Assistant Chief Constable for West Mercia Police told the Sunday Mirror: “Tackling such horrific offences is the number one priority for police in Telford.

“We have not only increased officer numbers to tackle this type of offending, but use all of our available resources and technology available to prosecute anyone who sexually offends against children whether that offending took place today, yesterday or decades ago.”
