Young boy groomed via online video game system

You’ve heard the tragic stories of men, women, and children who have been abused and harmed by the current culture of rampant sexual exploitation.

But did you know that in these uncertain and confusing times of the COVID-19 pandemic gripping our nation and the larger global community, the threat of exploitation looms even larger?

I just heard a tragic story of a young boy who I will call Leo. That is not his real name but he and his story are very real. Leo was just 16-years-old when he was groomed and trafficked through what seemed like an innocent online video game system, one used by millions of American children. He wanted to connect with other players, and when the man who reached out to him acted like his friend, it seemed to both Leo and his parents to be just another way to talk to friends on the Internet.

But the reality was far worse! Men like Leo’s trafficker use and abuse mainstream platforms with children, like video games and other social media, in order to locate and abuse vulnerable victims.

When Leo decided to meet up with his online “friend,” traveling across state lines, he was shocked to discover the person on the other side of the screen was no friend, but rather a group of seven grown men who then trafficked and exploited the young boy.

Leo was used as a sex slave for over a year, trapped in a filthy trailer while the men spent their time trying to lure other victims. It wasn’t until another 17-year-old boy arrived, also groomed and lured through the video game platform, that Leo was finally released from his prison. The men were arrested for sex trafficking, but Leo’s life has been scarred forever from his experience.

It’s no secret or surprise that stories like Leo’s are happening all across the country. And thanks to supporters like you, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has focused on the policies, education, and advocacy to bring awareness and solutions to these very issues.

We’ve even launched campaigns directly against the video game industry with Dirty Dozen List targets like Steam, the ultra-popular online gaming platform. Our wider #NotAGame project also targets sexual exploitation, violence, and abuse rampant in video games across all platforms.

These have been very successful projects in raising awareness, but tragedies like the one that happened to Leo are still occurring.

We know you care about not only helping boys like Leo as they recover from their abuse, but also about preventing future victims.

Our child protection projects urgently need funding right now not only because we are running short of cash for them but, as importantly, because these projects are gaining so much momentum. We are changing the big companies that rely on our children for their success by convincing them to beef up their child-protection measures. I’m talking about companies like Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat and others that millions of children access every day.

Will you help us stop this scourge of online danger with a monthly donation?

Every amount can be used to make a big difference right now. We'll turn your monthly donation, whatever you can afford, into advocacy with legislators and corporate executives as well as a means for getting crucial information and resources into the hands of parents so they can protect their children.

With children online more than ever during this period of social isolation and distance, the threat of online sexual exploitation is more pressing now than ever.

Help prevent further boys like Leo by funding these projects today!

JUST SAY NO!

April 1st  

CM

Our world is run by worldwide corporations. They control what work goes where, how much things will cost and who has jobs. They have people fly here and there for meetings many times the costs of having people fly for a one hour meeting is ridiculous.

Now we have had these flights rip into every culture and country round the planet. Do we not have technologies that make it so you can have virtual real time meetings? Do we not have screens to put up visuals of the main speakers in real time? Why are we flying people around countries and the world for these meetings? We have the ability to fly many prototypes round the world in just days. We can share screens install software and show how software works virtually.

Why do we allow the CEO’s of the corporations to put our lives in jeopardy not only for mechanical mishaps that can happen while traveling but now we have proof of what can happen if health issues are happening in one country how quickly it can travel round the world withend results of Mass Health Pandemic and Death.

Next time you are asked to travel to another city, state or country for a meeting JUST SAY NO we can use technology instead to bring us together.

Sexual Exploitation of Boys and men

For too long, male sexual exploitation victims have been overlooked. The media, politicians, and society at large have all failed to adequately address the experiences of boys and men involving sex trafficking, prostitution, child sexual abuse, sexual objectification, or early childhood exposure to pornography. As a result, countless men and boys suffer in silence without receiving the appropriate services for recovery.

Police sting leads to men who used gay hookup app Grinder to lure boys for sex abuse

Featured Image

 

Oklahoma police investigators made 11 arrests, including two who used the app to target young victims.
Thu Mar 12, 2020 - 7:36 pm EST

PAWNEE COUNTY, Oklahoma, March 12, 2020  An Oklahoma sheriff says two men arrested and charged with the rape of minors used a homosexual hookup app to precisely target underage boys for “gay sex.”

The homosexual app Grindr was mentioned by Sheriff Mike Waters of Pawnee County, Oklahoma, in a Tulsa News on 6 report as the tool used to lure the underage boys. The report says the investigation began when a middle school student notified police that an older classmate made a vulgar proposal to him. 

The arrests of the two men who used Grindr as a lure were part of a larger police sting, reported Tulsa News on 6 on March 10. The sting resulted in the arrests of 11 men by Oklahoma police investigators. One of the charges of the suspects has been dropped. 

The Tulsa News on 6 report says, and court records show, that Grindr was directly used by two of the arrested men, 25-year-old Thomas Muench and 25-year-old Quinton Griesel, for the purpose of targeting their victims. The news report also says a court affidavit shows one of the charged men, Griesel, engaged in “sex acts” with a male teenager in a bathroom stall at Pawnee High School.

Griesel worked in the school cafeteria and was arrested in early February after the boy he is accused of raping contacted the police. He was booked for sodomy, second-degree rape, and lewd acts to a child under 16. A Tulsa Channel 8 report says a court affidavit shows that the boy and Griesel connected on Grindr and met in a school bathroom after lunch to engage in the illegal and lewd “sex acts.”  

Another court affidavit shows that the other man charged with rape, Muench, also met his victim, a 15-year-old boy, on Grindr. According to police, this sexual abuse crime was not committed on school property. 

The other suspects are facing a multitude of charges from soliciting a minor for sex and child porn, to lewd acts with a minor. Penalties for persons found guilty of even having one image of child porn can face up to 20 years in prison. This goes up to life in prison should a person be found with more than 100 child porn images

 

Grindr describes itself as the world’s most used social networking app for homosexuals, bisexuals, transgenders, and queer people. The app is owned by a Chinese business, which has caused concern that Chinese intelligence uses it to collect the sensitive personal information of its users, such as HIV status, messages, and where a person is located. It had around 27 million users as of 2017.

According to police, all of the arrested suspects were aware — or at least thought — that they were talking to boys under age 18. Court records show that some of the men were talking with undercover police. 

The Tulsa News on 6 report quoted Sheriff Waters as saying the 11 arrests for sex crimes were “jaw dropping, it's unbelievable.”

“The public needs to know; the parents need to know how dangerous this is,” he added.

The reality of the targeting of youths for the purpose of sex trafficking is that it is a growing problem in the United States, as the recent documentary about sex trafficking, Blind Eyes Opened, shows.  

Mike Fisher, who serves as the Pawnee and Osage County District Attorney, said in the Tulsa News on 6 report that kids do not “understand how dangerous this is,” adding that “I can guarantee the parents don't.”

Fisher also noted that the best way to combat this type of situation is “old-fashioned parenting,” adding that parents should not be afraid to look at their kid’s phones.   

Jonathon Van Maren of LifeSiteNews published a blog in 2018 titled “10 reasons not to give your child – or teen – a smartphone.” In his blog, Van Maren goes over the dangers of smartphones for young children, citing examples of why parents should be more guarded when it comes to what kinds of technology they let their kids access. 

A September Breitbart News report listed Grindr as one of the “top 15 potentially dangerous apps parents should look for on their kid’s smartphones.”

A February report by LifeSiteNews highlighted a report by The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) showing the top 13 companies in the world that facilitate sexual exploitation. 

The NCOSE has a webpage dedicated specifically to male sexual exploitation that states: “The media, politicians, and society at large have all failed to adequately address the experiences of boys and men involving sex trafficking, prostitution, child sexual abuse, sexual objectification, or early childhood exposure to pornography. As a result, countless men and boys suffer in silence without receiving the appropriate services for recovery.”

Petition to close down Pornhub over sex trafficking and child rape fears hits 26 Feb 2020, 15:08

PORNHUB is in trouble after a Change.Org petition to close the website over sex trafficking and child rape fears has received 300,000 signatures.

Women's rights group Exodus Cry, who launched the petition, say that Pornhub is a "super-predator" site and that its time to hold the website accountable for "hundreds" of alleged videos of underage sex trafficking victims that appear on the site.

According to the petition, videos can be uploaded onto Pornhub too easily without proper verification and checks in place.

The petition, listed on the Change.Org website, alleges: "Pornhub has no reliable system in place to verify that those in the videos it hosts are not trafficked children being raped on film in order to line the pockets of its executives.

"What all of this means is that at this very moment, there could be hundreds, if not thousands, of videos of underage sex trafficking victims on Pornhub. We already have evidence, and it is just the tip of the iceberg.

"It’s time to shut down super-predator site Pornhub and hold the executives behind it accountable."

The petition also mentions a story last October of a teenage girl, missing for nearly a year, who was found by authorities after sexually explicit photos and videos of her were found on websites including Pornhub, the New York Post reported.

Some of the videos featured a man, identified as 30-year-old Christopher Johnson, who was spotted with the missing girl in February at a 7-Eleven in Broward County, according to the report.

Pornhub have hit back at the allegations in a statement on Tuesday afternoon, quoted in Complex News.

The statement read: "Pornhub has a steadfast commitment to eradicating and fighting any and all illegal content on the internet, including non-consensual content and child sexual abuse material.

impeachment

For those of you liberfools unaware of how impeachment works, the Constitution requires a two-thirds super majority to convict a person of being impeached. The House may approve impeachment all they want, but it requires the Senate to enter a judgment on its decision, whether that be to convict or acquit, and a copy of the judgment is filed with the Secretary of State. Until the Senate passes judgment, it’s still nothing more than an accusation against a President presumed to be innocent until convicted as guilty. Merry Christmas! There are four criteria for impeachment: treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Unless one of these is met, Congress does not have the authority to impeach. Alexander Hamilton stated that any act of Congress that is inconsistent with the Constitution is void if there is no judicial review. Congress is violating their oath of office. The framers of the Constitution did not give unlimited powers to the House of Representatives. Therefore, what Congress is doing now is abusing this power and violating their sworn oath of office. The President has the right to due process, the right to address his accuser, the right to have witnesses and the right to present evidence. So much of this evidence has been eviscerated by the House Intelligent Committee and rubber-stamped by the House Judiciary. The impeachment process is supposed to be non-partisan. Obviously it wasn’t. There was little first-hand knowledge presented by the Democrats.

Is marijuana linked to psychosis, schizophrenia? It's contentious but doctors, feds say yes

Early one morning in March, Madison McIntosh showed up on his day off at the Scottsdale, Arizona, driving range and restaurant where he worked. The 24-year-old sat in his car until the place opened, then wandered around all day, alternating between gibberish and talk of suicide as co-workers tried to keep him away from customers.

When he was still there 12 hours later, the manager contacted McIntosh’s father in Las Vegas, who called police and rallied other family members states away to converge at the young man’s side.

They found a shell of the once-star baseball player. For months he’d been spending his days vaping a potent form of THC, the ingredient in marijuana that makes people feel high, and staying up all night. Now, he was wildly swinging between depression and euphoria.

The family rushed McIntosh to Banner Behavioral Health Hospital, where staff psychiatrist Dr. Divya Jot Singh diagnosed him with cannabis use disorder and a "psychotic disorder unspecified.”
