Rabbi Aryeh Goodman, 35, Gabriella Colon, 18, and Richard Ortiz, 23, have been charged in connection to the human trafficking and prostitution of a 17-year old girl from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Chief James Conroy of the East Brunswick Police Department.
Officials said that Colon and Ortiz sold the sexual services of the teen to about 30 men at a hotel in East Brunswick from Jan. 1 to Feb. 2 of this year. The rabbi was one of the men who engaged in sexual relations with the 17-year old during this time, according to the investigation.
Colon and Ortiz, both from the Bronx, were arrested at a motel in Fort Lee on Feb. 16. and are being held at the Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center. They have been charged with 11 criminal counts including human trafficking, promoting prostitution of a child, endangering the welfare of a child, criminal restraint, and a number of child pornography offenses including the manufacturing, distribution and possession of pornography.
Goodman, who runs a religious learning center out of his home in East Brunswick and may be affiliated with another on Lexington Avenue in the township, has been charged with one count of engaging in prostitution with a child and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. He turned himself in to police at the East Brunswick Police Department on Feb. 6.
The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Chris Farrace or Detective Dan Unkel of the East Brunswick Police Department at (732) 390-6900, or Detective Mark Morris of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-4194.
“Human trafficking—the commercial sexual exploitation of American children and women, via the Internet, strip clubs, escort services, or street prostitution—is on its way to becoming one of the worst crimes in the U.S.,” said prosecutor Krishna Patel.
This is not a problem found only in big cities.
It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation.
With a growing demand for sexual slavery and an endless supply of girls and women who can be targeted for abduction, this is not a problem that’s going away anytime soon.
In fact, this growing evil is, for all intents and purposes, out in the open: trafficked women and children are advertised on the internet, transported on the interstate, and bought and sold in swanky hotels.
Educate yourselves and your children about this growing menace in our communities.
Stop feeding the monster: Sex trafficking is part of a larger continuum in America that runs the gamut from homelessness, poverty, and self-esteem issues to sexualized television, the glorification of a pimp/ho culture—what is often referred to as the pornification of America—and a billion dollar sex industry built on the back of pornography, music, entertainment, etc.
Call on your city councils, elected officials and police departments to make the battle against sex trafficking a top priority, more so even than the so-called war on terror and drugs and the militarization of law enforcement.
Stop prosecuting adults for victimless “crimes” such as growing lettuce in their front yard and focus on putting away the pimps and buyers who victimize these young women.
Finally, the police need to do a better job of training, identifying and responding to these issues; communities and social services need to do a better job of protecting runaways, who are the primary targets of traffickers; legislators need to pass legislation aimed at prosecuting traffickers and “johns,” the buyers who drive the demand for sex slaves; and hotels need to stop enabling these traffickers, by providing them with rooms and cover for their dirty deeds.
That so many women and children continue to be victimized, brutalized and treated like human cargo is due to three things: one, a consumer demand that is increasingly lucrative for everyone involved—except the victims; two, a level of corruption so invasive on both a local and international scale that there is little hope of working through established channels for change; and three, an eerie silence from individuals who fail to speak out against such atrocities.
But the truth is that we are all guilty of contributing to this human suffering. The traffickers are guilty. The consumers are guilty. The corrupt law enforcement officials are guilty. The women’s groups who do nothing are guilty. The foreign peacekeepers and aid workers who contribute to the demand for sex slaves are guilty. Most of all, every individual who does not raise a hue and cry over the atrocities being committed against women and children in almost every nation around the globe—including the United States—is guilty.
A former leader of the Montana House of Representatives who once supported funding for an anti-drug campaign was sentenced to 18 years in prison Thursday for his central role in a methamphetamine trafficking ring.
Michael Lange, the Republican House majority leader during the 2007 Legislature, arranged deliveries of at least 20 and possibly up to 50 pounds of meth from a source in California over a seven-month period in 2016, prosecutors said. It was sold through a network of approximately 15 to 20 dealers in Montana and Wyoming, according to federal prosecutors and an FBI drug task-force officer.
CNN Cuomo Prime Time
January 10, 2018
9:10:30 PM Eastern
CHRIS CUOMO: Have you given funding to New Hampshire to fight opioids since you got in there? No!
KELLYANNE CONWAY: Yes, we have. What are you talking about?!
CUOMO: How so? What money has been apportioned?
CONWAY: Every state got money through the SAMSHA grant.
CUOMO That’s what Sherrod Brown said at the meeting today: This is a good move, stop fentanyl as it comes across the border, but you have to give money to communities as well. We’ll see what you do on it. That would be important work.
CONWAY: Do you know what the Cures Act is? Do you know what the SAMHSA grants do? Do you have any idea? I doubt it.
CUOMO: I do but the money has to get on the ground and it has to be put to work and that’s not happening yet the way it needs to be. That’s my point.
CONWAY: It’s nice to have an administration that is actually focused on it, focused on interjection of law enforcement, treatment, and recovery, and apprehensive education.
CUOMO: If it results in action.
CONWAY: There is action. The whole reason the President wants to have a wall, and he will build that wall, is in part to stop the flow of illegal immigration, but in large part also to stop the flow of illicit drugs. It’s poisoning, it’s killing–
CUOMO: Do you know how drugs come into this country?
CONWAY: Many ways: Through the southern border, through the U.S. Postal Service. Many different ways, drugs come into this country and it has to stop.
CUOMO: Do you know how the majority of it gets into this country?
CONWAY: Educate me, please.
CUOMO: Well, you know the answer. You know the wall, which we don’t even know–that’s another topic for tonight. I don’t even know what you mean when you say a wall anymore.
CONWAY: If you want to know I’ll answer it right now.
CUOMO: Hold on. I don’t want to run away from this because this is an important point.
CUOMO: Putting up a wall isn’t going to stop illegal drugs coming into this country and you know that.
CONWAY: That’s ridiculous.
COUMO: They come by air and they come in tunnels. I’ve been in them. I’ve been in those tunnels. Very cramped. Very scary.
CONWAY: Are you saying—I’m sorry Christopher. Are you telling the viewers that no drugs come through the southern border? Did you just say that?
CUOMO: No. I’m saying the idea of a wall is going to be –
CONWAY: Facts first. Be an apple, don’t be a banana.
CUOMO: –the difference is a joke. Saying a wall will keep fentanyl out of this country, which the President said today, is a joke because it comes by cargo ship and cargo plane.
CONWAY: No, drugs out of this country.
CUOMO: This is high-grade pharmaceuticals, not something strapped on someone’s back that one of your friends said “walking them across with cantaloupe caves.” It’s not true it’s a fiction.
CONWAY: Actually, fentanyl is a synthetic opioid. Well hold on Chris, do you know what percentage of—You don’t think any opioids come through the southern border? None. You don’t think any drugs come through?
9:20:32 PM Eastern
CONWAY: But make no mistake, you’ve prototypes I hope. You know that many different firms bid on constructing the border wall. And that is something at is an incredibly important piece of this. But I still can’t get to you agree that it’s worthwhile. You said it’s not going to help interdict any drugs that this is silly, that they come through airplanes and ports. That’s just false.
CUOMO: No I said—That’s not what I said. You’re right, that is just false because that’s not what I said.
The famous Arizona sheriff known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”, Joe Arpaio, was well-known for his hard-nosed stance against immigration lawbreakers and his tent-based jails. Arpaio and loyalists within the Federal government worked hand-in-hand to curb illegal immigration, while being opposed by the forces of George Soros and the Obama administration. These forces were trying to stop Arpaio efforts at stemming the tide of human trafficking in Arizona, which has earned Arpaio both staunch enemies and allies.
Former Maricopa Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, has been at war with the Department of Justice for years. This former DEA agent understands the “ins and the outs” of gun-running, drug dealing and child-sex-trafficking as it relates to the former Obama administration.
As the Sheriff of Maricopa County, he was privy to the illegal activites of the Mexican cartels, associated terror groups and key members of the Obama administration who either sanctioned or purposely turned a blind eye to these heinous practices. When Arpaio refused to capitulate and go along to get along, he was targeted.
Please allow this writer to remind the readers that under Obama and then Attorney General Eric Holder, that the Fast Furious gun running operation which placed American guns in the hands of the drug cartels in order to blame the Second Amendment for the violence coming to America, that it has already been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Obama and Holder broke the law and Fast and Furious is absolutely proven to be true. As a by-product of this illegal activity in which Holder’s DOJ shipped guns to the cartels, Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry was murdered with one of these guns. Eric Holder was made to answer for these crimes in front Congress and he refused to answer questions and turn over key documents related to the operation and he was found guilty of Contempt of Congress.
“The House has voted to hold Attorney GeneralEric Holderin contempt of Congress over his failure to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal, the first time Congress has taken such a dramatic move against a sitting Cabinet official.
The vote was 255-67, with 17 Democrats voting in support of a criminal contempt resolution, which authorizes Republicans leaders to seek criminal charges against Holder. This Democratic support came despite a round of behind-the-scenes lobbying by senior White House and Justice officials – as well as pressure from party leaders – to support Holder.”
The drug cartels that received the guns, courtesy of Holder’s DOJ, used these guns to support their own gun-running, drug trafficking as well as human smuggling, which included children. Further, since it has been conclusively established fact that the drug cartels are in bed with known terrorist groups (eg The Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS), the DOJ, under Holder was also partnered with terrorist groups who have brought drugs, guns and child-sex-trafficking victims and murder to the United States. When Holder was cornered by Congress, he refused to cooperate and was found in contempt. One may wonder why Holder was not jailed? Corruption would be the short answer as an Obama appointee federal judge declined a House committee’s bid to have Attorney General Eric Holder held in contempt of court — and perhaps even jailed — for failing to turn over documents related to the Justice Department’ s response to Operation Fast and Furious. In other words, Congress wanted to jail Holder, but a corrupt Federal judge blocked the effort. Holder’s alleged crimes would have included the following:
Accomplice to the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Accomplice in drug-trafficking, drug-dealing and child-sex-trafficking by associated cartels who were in possession of Fast and Furious obtained and distributed guns.
Treason for his support for various terrorist groups as a by-product of his direct aid and comfort to the cartels.
Malfeasance of office.
One might be wondering why am I reporting on historical events? At the center of Fast and Furious was the support and evidence provided to Congress by Sheriff Arpaio who publicly criticized Holder for among other things, how he handled Operation Fast and Furious, and for not being a supporter of peace officers. But behind the scenes, Arpaio was doing much more as he had his investigators accumulate evidence against Holder that made its way to Congress as they were investigating the Attorney General. I have been asked by an unspecified number of Maricopa County Sheriff’s personnel, both present and past, to call attention to Sheriff Joe’s attempts to bring down Eric Holder and his illegal activites that plagued all border states including Arizona. These sources claim that Arpaio has been directly feeding President Trump information which has led to the secret indictments that Q-anon is speaking of and now Liz Crokin is reporting on.
Remember, Arpaio was former DEA, so in addition to his duties as Sheriff, and his unavoidable contact with apprended cartel members who were illegally in the country, he would have had the contacts to take him to dark side of this activity through his DEA contacts. This report may be the first report in which Sheriff Joe is publicly given credit for his role in putting Holder out to pasture as he was replaced as AG by Loretta Lynch. Joe Arpaio has never been given the credit he deserves and I want to stress, Arpaio did not request that I write this piece.
Arpaio was branded as a racist by the MSM. Arpaio is no racist. All one had to do to discredit this fake news allegation was to look at the racial and gender composition of his adminstration. However, after it became known by Obama that Arpaio was the leak that brought down Holder and almost brought down Obama himself, Obama went after Apraio with a vengeance.
The fake news media would have you believe that Arpaio spent every waking moment of every day thinking of ways to bust Mexican nationals and send them back home. Subsequently, Arpaio was working in conjunction with ICE and was doing his job when he arrested illegal aliens. However, Arpaio was not looking people who wanted to wait on our tables and landscape our yards, he was looking for affiliated personnel to the trafficking of the drug cartels. He was obsessed with stopping human trafficking, drug dealing and gun running. The cartels were threatening to turn Arizona into a cess pool of organized criminality. Phoenix, a defacto sanctuary city under rogue mayor, Greg Stanton, provides sanctuary for some of America’s most hardened criminals. Many of these criminals include cartel members who engage in the previously mentioned criminal activities.
For Arpaio’s efforts, he was attacked by the Obama administration.
From the ultra liberal, Huffington Post:
“Most notably, the Arizona legislature passed a state law a couple of years ago that allows immigrants who are willingly trafficked into the country to be charged as co-conspirators of human trafficking. Arpaio was defiant Sunday night on local conservative radio station KTAR, “I’m going to tell you something, Jay,” he said to Lawrence. “I don’t need the feds to do my crime suppression to opt to arrest illegals. I can do it without the federal authority, and I’m going to continue to do it. It makes no difference. It helps us. Because I don’t have to do all the paperwork for the feds, number one. And number two, I won’t be under their umbrella, their guidance. So I will operate the same way, nothing is going to change.” He added later in the show, “They just don’t want me, I’m the poster boy.”
Shortly after this interview, Arpaio was removed as being a certified ICE enforcer as the Obama administration tried to strip him of his ability to arrest illegal aliens that may have some role in trafficking (drugs, guns and kids). This was a deliberate move by the Obama administration to keep Arpaio from interfering with their trafficking operations being run through the DOJ and Eric Holder.
The Deep State, in support of Obama and Holder, began to propagandize Arpaio’s efforts to stop trafficking of all types by branding him a racist. When Arpaio would not stop, he was charged with contempt of court by the Federal government.
As an aside, America needs to immigration to support its pathetic 1.8 birth rate in order to maintain our social programs (eg medicare and social security). Mexico and the rest of Central America is as good of a place to find good people to come to our country. However, we do not need criminals crossing our borders and there needs to be a vetting process that comes with immigration.
When I began writing about the fact that McCain and Hillary suddenly were wearing walking boots on the same day and the explanations for doing so were very suspect, I was contacted by a former Maricopa County Sheriffs personnel (MCSO) and was told that Arpaio had been feeding information directly to the White House on the criminal activities as it pertained to the Fast and Furious case and Obama’s link to the cartels and their allies in various terrorist organizations. These informants stated that the walking boots were likely concealing ankle bracelets given to indicted suspects. Interestingly, McCains boot changed feet!
Since I have been writing about the sealed indictments against various Deep State puppets more MCSO personnel have given me bits and pieces of this story. When candidate Trump would visit Arizona, Arpaio was his constant companion. When Sheriff Joe faced prison time, President Trump pardoned him. There is much more to this story and it will be told in tomorrow’s next installment in this series. Also, the exposure of Obama’s fake birth certificate will be revealed as it was Arpaio that revealed that as well.
There is one more aspect that these revelations about Arpaio will expose and that is the fact that the Deep State does intend on using FEMA camps for all the intended purposes. That and more will be covered in tomorrow’s article.

Several Seattle employees of both Google and Amazon were busted after using their corporate accounts to send emails to local brothels and pimps looking to purchase services from sex workers trafficked from Asia, according to emails obtained by Newsweek.
“Emails obtained by Newsweek reveal another sordid corner of the tech sector’s treatment of women: a horny nest of prostitution “hobbyists” at tech giants Microsoft, Amazon and other firms in Seattle’s high tech alley.”
Many of the emails were swept up in a 2015 sting operation which targeted online chat rooms and message boards in which customers rate sex workers – resulting in the arrest of 18 of these “prostitution hobbyists,” including several high level Amazon and Microsoft directors – two of which are currently scheduled for trial in March.
Seattle brothels had been catering to Microsoft employees through several “backpage.com” ads located nearby the company’s Redmond, WA headquarters, in what is becoming a booming business.
A study commissioned by the Department of Justice found that Seattle has the fastest-growing sex industry in the United States, more than doubling in size between 2005 and 2012. That boom correlates neatly with the boom of the tech sector there. It also correlates to the surge in high-paying jobs, since this “hobby” (the word johns use online to describe buying sex) can be expensive: some of these men spent $30,000 to $50,000 a year, according to authorities.
The tech sector has not only employed a significant number of men who pay for sex with trafficked women, it has also enabled traffickers to more easily reach customers and to hide their business from cops by taking it off the streets and into computers and ultimately, hotel rooms, motels or apartments. In one 24-hour-period in Seattle, an estimated 6,487 people solicited sex on just one of the more than 100 websites that connect buyers with sellers, according to a 2014 study.
Of note, Backpage.com shut down its adult sections in January, citing government pressure following a 2016 Senate report on commercial sex services fingered the website as a hotbed for criminal activity, and stating that “Backpage officials have publicly acknowledged that criminals use the website for sex trafficking, including trafficking of minors.”
Backpage.com CEO Carl Ferrer (Texas AG)
In October, 2016, Backpage CEO Carl Ferrer was arrested in Houston and the company’s Dallas headquarters searched. NPR reported at the time that Ferrer, 55, was charged with pimping a minor, pimping and conspiracy to commit pimping. Two controlling shareholders of Backpage — Michael Lacey and James Larkin — also are charged with conspiracy to commit pimping.”
The prostitutes trafficked from Asia typically don’t speak much English, relying on translation apps to offer services such as “girlfriend” experiences and “Nuru” (nude massage). Many of the women are working their way out of debt bondage, and feared for their lives or those of their families – according to one pimp interviewed during the 2015 sting.
A spokesman for Microsoft said of the emails “Microsoft has a long history of cooperating with law enforcement and other agencies on combating sex trafficking and related topics, and we have employees who volunteer their time and money specifically to combat this issue as well. The personal conduct of a tiny fraction of our 125,000 employees does not in any way represent our culture. No organization is immune to the unfortunate situation when employees act unethically or illegally. When that happens, we look into the conduct and take appropriate action. Microsoft makes it clear to our employees they have a responsibility to act with integrity and conduct themselves in a legal and ethical manner at all times. If they don’t, they risk losing their jobs.”
Amazon told Newsweek it’s investigating the matter, and that “It is against Amazon’s policy for any employee or Contingent Worker to engage in any sex buying activities of any kind in Amazon’s workplace or in any work-related setting outside of the workplace, such as during business trips, business meetings or business-related social events.’ When Amazon suspects that an employee has used company funds or resources to engage in criminal conduct, the company will immediately investigate and take appropriate action up to and including termination. The company may also refer the matter to law enforcement.”
It is no longer a secret that throughout all levels of the Hollywood establishment there is rampant sexual abuse. However, this massive ousting of pedophiles and sex abusers is leading to a place in which some of society’s worst abusers make a living off your tax dollars—Washington D.C.
In a bombshell interview with Disobedient Media, Greg Bucceroni, a survivor of sex trafficking, described his experiences in an alleged child sex ring in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s that primarily targeted troubled young boys on the East Coast. The network was said to be comprised of known human traffickers, abusers and producers of child pornography with ties to organized crime who openly associated with prominent political figures, including some who have been accused of indiscretions in the past, according to DM.
For those who don’t remember, Bucceroni is no stranger to exposing elite pedophiles as he came forward in 2012 with major allegations linking Jerry Sandusky to a massive pedophile ring tied to former Poly Prep football coach Phil Foglietta.
The pedophile ring operated under the cover of being a charitable organization that helped at-risk youths. Only this alleged pedophile ring preyed on them instead of helped them.
“(Between) 1977-1980 I was a child prostitute associated with a tri-state (NYC-NJ-PA) pedophile ring. (During the) summer of 1979 I was brought to the State College area by Ed Savitz for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile fundraiser,” Bucceroni wrote in the email. “Due to time constraints, Sandusky became unavailable and I was introduced to Phil Foglietta by Ed Savitz & Jerry Sandusky. Foglietta was introduced to us as Coach Phil who coached youth football in NYC. Foglietta agreed to pay $200.00 for child sex and followed us back to a Philadelphia hotel, myself (sic)ad another child prostitute then engaged coach Phil in child sex.”
The pedophile rings included former Philadelphia businessman, Ed Savitz, philanthropist Samuel Rappaport, former Penn State coach, Jerry Sandusky, Coach Phil Foglietta, and former Wharton School of Business professor, Lawrence Scott Ward. Along with Sandusky, Ward was busted as well and is currently serving a prison sentence for producing and distributing child porn.
Bucceroni also linked former speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, Lawrence King, and former DNC Chair Ed Rendell to the scandal.
King ran the now defunct Franklin Community Federal Credit Union in Omaha, Nebraska, and it was alleged that the ring was “a cult of devil worshipers involved in the mutilation, sacrifice, and cannibalism of numerous children.”
During the fall of the credit union, the NY Times reported that State Senator Ernie Chambers of Omaha, said the activities of Lawrence E. King Jr., the credit union’s manager for the last 18 years and the central figure in its collapse, were ”just the tip of an iceberg, and he’s not in it by himself.”
Bucceroni told Disobedient Media that Lawrence King would host trips to “take kids from the South Philly Boys Club to Washington D.C.” Bucceroni explained that he was never tortured by Savitz or Lawrence King and was not personally aware of others being tortured but that Savitz used the “honey approach rather than vinegar.”
Hastert was apparently very close to Lawrence King as well. As TFTP has reported in the past, Hastert, the former speaker of the house under Clinton and Bush is an admitted child rapist whose political connections got him a sweet deal during his prosecution.
Aside from the FOIA requests, WikiLeaks, and mainstream press backing up the claims of Bucceroni, as TFTP recently reported, we are now seeing the curtain get peeled back on DC showing how taxpayer dollars are being spent to cover up the rampant sex abuse taking place in the nation’s capital.
Bucceroni’s allegations not only tie sex trafficking philanthropists to the political elite, but they also encompass the mafia and a pornography empire that would help create and distribute the horrific acts by these monsters.
As DM notes, pornography mogul Richard Basciano was reported to have partnered with mafia notable Robert DiBernado, who The New York Times lists as a captain in the Gambino crime family that was under federal investigation for child pornography at the time of his murder. The New York Times reported that “Mr. DiBernardo and Mr. Rothstein are officers of Star Distributors, a company that Federal prosecutors are investigating for involvement in child pornography.” The New York Daily News also confirms that in the 1980’s, Robert DiBernardo and Ted Rothstein were partners of Richard Basciano. FBI documents state outright that Basciano oversaw Star Distributors, which was referred to as an outlet well known for distributing child pornography.
Aside from his mafia ties, Basciano was also well-connected to the political class.
Basciano had a well-documented friendship with Ed Rendell, a former District Attorney for Philadelphia, former Governor of Pennsylvania and former DNC Chair. Some press reports go so far as to suggest that Rendell shielded Basciano in the aftermath of a 2013 building collapse. An editorial by the Philadelphia Inquirer lamented that “It was disheartening to hear a former mayor, Ed Rendell, defend Richard Basciano,” during the ensuing scandal. The editorial appears to have since been removed from the Inquirer’s site.
Aside from being the former DNC Chair, Rendell was also reportedly involved with the child trafficking ring operating out of Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.
The Obama administration, with the help of Rendell who was the Governor of Pennsylvania, removed children from Haiti—illegally—and transported them back to the US.
Diane Paul, an expert on human rights in disaster zones at the Brookings Institution in Washington, said at the time, according to the Telegraph, “These people were well-intentioned but they were taking children out of the country without the right permission and that just shouldn’t happen.Political pressure should not be used to take children in violation of regulations.”
As DM notes, Wikileaks emails sent during the crisis reveal that in behind-the-scenes discussion of Rendell’s Haitian efforts, Hillary Clinton’s aides characterized Rendell as extremely motivated to remove the children from Haiti as quickly as possible. The discussion included statements by Clinton aides showing an awareness that the children Rendell sought to fly from the earthquake-ravaged island nation included 12 minors who were not involved in any adoption process.
Rendell was so eager to take these children out of Haiti, that Clinton’s aides noted that the Secretary of State herself may be the only person capable of stopping him. “The only person who may be able to back Rendell off is Secretary Clinton. Has anyone looped Cheryl Mills in on this issue?” the email read.
But it gets worse. As DM reports:
Rendell’s intervention in Haiti was not the only human trafficking scandal tied to the former DNC Chair. Bloomberg reported on allegations of “systemic human smuggling” of forced laborers and money laundering documented in relation to a Saipan casino project by Hong Kong-based Imperial Pacific, controlled by Chinese billionaire Cui Lijie. The New York Times wrote that Rendell served on the company’s Advisory Committee. Bloomberg reported that others involved with Imperial Pacific included former Directors of the FBI and CIA, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and a former executive in President Donald Trump’s Atlantic City casino business.
Given the bombshell evidence presented by Bucceroni and delivered by Disobedient Media, which is backed up by massive amounts of evidence, the idea that someone could easily dismiss the allegations of rampant child trafficking among America’s elite as a conspiracy theory is irresponsible at best, and complicit at worst.
On multiple occasions, the Free Thought Project has reported interviews of former child sex trafficking victims who’ve all noted—just like Bucceroni—that they had nowhere to go as police and high-level politicians all took place in the abuse.
In case after case, the Free Thought Project reports on horrifying instances of child sex rings that were allowed to go on for decades because politicians — including heads of states — policemen, clergy, and others were all in on the sick game.
This can no longer go on. As DM so eloquently put it, The Huffington Post recently wrote of the Weinstein scandal: “Since Harvey Weinstein’s downfall, we as a society have apparently decided to try this radical new idea called “believing women.” We propose that as a society we also try the radical idea of believing the children.
Moore, OK — Body Camera footage, released this week, shows the moment police raided the hotel room occupied by former Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey and his underage victim.
In the body camera footage, Shortey appears dumbfounded as he is caught with the underage boy in his room.
The officer says, “He’s 17.”
Shortey replies, “Okay.”
The officer then asks, “What do you mean, ‘Okay’?”
“I didn’t know that,” replies Shortey.
“Can you show me that he is only 17?” Shortey says in the video.
Ironically, and in poor taste, the senator was wearing a t-shirt referencing the Bible scripture Ephesians 5:22, which refers to wives submitting to their husbands. Under the scripture was the phrase, “Now go make me a sandwich.” Shortey was known as the “family values” senator.
Sen. Shortey was wearing a shirt that said “Ephesians 5:22” when police found him in a hotel room with an underage male.
Specifically this verse is the (often misrepresented) verse about “wives submit to your husband”
Last week, Shortey pleaded guilty to a single child sex trafficking charge in exchange for three other charges to be dismissed. He now faces a minimum of 10 years in prison but could be sent away for life.
“Mr. Shortey feels this is a necessary step in putting this painful and humiliating ordeal behind him, for both himself, his family and for the state of Oklahoma,” Shortey’s attorney Ed Blau said last month.
Below is the video of this “painful and humiliating ordeal.”
After the federal grand jury meeting in Oklahoma City returned their four indictments, Shorty, 35, originally pleaded not guilty. He wiped away tears as officials read out his child sex trafficking and child pornography offenses. However, given the evidence against him, as detailed in the graphic federal indictment, Shortey’s attorneys likely knew he had no grounds for a not guilty plea.
Despite being caught in the act at a Super 8 motel room in Moore, Oklahoma, Shortey was released after agreeing to a series of stringent conditions including wearing an ankle monitor and having his computer monitored.
As TFTP previously reported, the charges came after Shortey was busted in a motel room in March with an underage boy.
The investigation was launched when the teen boy’s parents called police after finding disturbing text messages between him and their son. When police began their investigation into the texts, they found Senator Ralph Shortey in a motel room with the boy.
As KOCO 5 reported at the time, police obtained a search warrant that was served during the investigation. Using the search warrant, police said they found the juvenile’s Kindle Fire tablet that contained conversations between him and Shortey pertaining to sexual activities in exchange for money. The tablet was seized as evidence.
During the raid on the hotel room, the boy admitted to selling weed to Shortey in the past and said he had known him for about a year. When police searched the Kindle found in the room, they found evidence of Shortey attempting to solicit “sexual” stuff from the underage teen.
Police also noted that they smelled marijuana and found a backpack with a bottle of lotion and condoms, according to the report.
Showing the bipartisan nature of sex abuse among the political elite, Shortey was also the state chair of President Donald Trump’s campaign during the primary elections. He was known as a “family values” conservative.
Sex abuse among the political elite knows no party line and those who attempt to use the abuser’s party affiliation for political gain do a disservice to the victims and guarantee no solution to the horrific problem. Sex abuse is rampant on both sides of the aisle and it exists from the lowest ranking cop all the way to the president.
Shortey resigned only weeks after the scandal began to unfold and, until now, he maintained his innocence despite the horrific child pornography found on his devices. According to News Oklahoma,
The federal grand jury accused Shortey in the first child pornography count of using his smartphone in October 2013 to email a video of a man engaging in sexually explicit conduct with a prepubescent girl.
He is accused in the second child pornographic count of using his smartphone that same month to email sexually explicit videos of young boys.
He is accused in the third child pornography count of persuading the boy he later took to the Moore hotel to send him an inappropriate picture.
He is accused in the child sex trafficking count of soliciting that boy in March to engage in a commercial sex act. The boy is identified in the indictment only as “John Doe.”
Since he was elected in 2010, the senator has led a secret double life, according to the indictment. For over seven years, through a series of fake names and fake email addresses, Shortey dealt in child pornography and began soliciting minors.
As news Oklahoma reports, federal prosecutors revealed in a court filing that the investigation found Shortey communicated “with numerous individuals, many of whom appear to be underage boys.”
New Town, ND – The recent disappearance of a 32-year-old mother has shed new light on the growing problem of violence against women that live near the booming oil fields of North Dakota. Over a month ago, Olivia Lone Bear went missing from Fort Berthold Reservation and has not been heard from since.
In a recent interview, lawyer Mary Kathryn Nagle, who is helping the family with the investigation, pointed out that violence against women in this particular area has been steadily increasing since the oil companies came to town.
“We have the highest rates across the United States, again, in Indian Country, of violence, but in particular in North Dakota, where the rates of oil extraction have skyrocketed since 2005 in the Bakken oil boom. As a result of that, over 100,000 men from outside the state of North Dakota have moved to the state of North Dakota to live in man camps that the oil companies have set up. And unfortunately, as Senator Heidi Heitkamp has noted, as the former U.S. Attorney for the state of North Dakota has noted, the resulting rates of violence, drug of course, and crime and burglary have skyrocketed, but also in particular, domestic violence and sexual assault, including rape and sex trafficking,” Nagle said.
“Numerous leaders both at the state and federal level have now noticed that North Dakota—some of the towns in North Dakota within the Bakken boom and some within the Fort Berthold reservation, where Olivia is from, now some have some of the highest rates of sex trafficking in the United States,” she added.
Pop up trailer cities where tens of thousands of oil workers come to live have become known locally as “man camps.” These camps are filled with workers who have been shipped in from all over the country, and while the majority of them are just trying to take any job they can get in a tough economy, there is a very dangerous criminal element that goes unchecked in and around these camps.
According to the Boston Globe, there are over 35 corporations extracting oil and “man camps” that stretch for miles just on the Fort Berthold reservation alone. A 2013 report in the Bismark Tribune showed rates of crime increasing across the board in the state, with Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem placing the blame directly on the growing oil industry and the camps that come along with it. More recent numbers show that the state’s crime rate increased by nearly 10% in 2015 and has stayed at that level, despite a slight increase of less than a percentage point in 2016.
North Dakota U.S. Attorney Tim Purdon told the AP that, “Our police and prosecutors are going to have to adapt to keep pace. We have organized criminal gangs selling drugs, sex trafficking, and out-of-state flim-flam men coming in. And the cases have become more and more complicated.”
Former Rosebud Sioux Tribe Police Chief Grace Her Many Horses warned about these camps in a 2014 interview, saying that, “This tribal police department isn’t equipped to handle what’s going to happen out there when the Man Camp arrives. The infrastructure of the towns on this Indian reservation will be forced to expand then months later it will collapse onto itself. Because I’ve witnessed it doing just that… what I am saying up there in Newtown, ND. It’s going to be really scary. Realistically speaking, we’re going to need to setup a substation for the area nearest to the Man Camp, and we got have people on call 24 hours a day there too. I don’t know how we are going to deal with that just yet. We are overwhelmed as is stands right now. Once the Man Camp moves in…”
She also revealed that young children have become targets of the sex traffickers and that local police commonly interact with registered sex offenders.
“Sexual assaults on the male population has increased by 75% in that area. One of the things we ran into while working up there was a 15-year-old boy had gone missing. He was found in one of the Man Camps with one of the oil workers.They were passing him around from trailer to trailer….We found a crying, naked, four-year-oldgirl running down one of the roads right outside of the Man Camp. She had been sexually assaulted…We found thirteen sex offenders in one Man Camp and that Man Camp is found directly behind the tribal casino,” she said.
Tribal police departments are also prevented from having jurisdiction over the non-tribal crime, which has presented a major roadblock in solving these cases, especially since the issue does not seem to be a priority to non-tribal law enforcement. In 2015, the FBI opened a fully staffed office in the area, but in the two years that they have been around there has been no improvement, and now there is another missing person with no major leads from the agency.
