Wells said Sawyer took him into Area 51.

This is a developing story.

Navy Seals Rescue Over a thousand trafficked children and dead bodies out of shipping containers in the Suez Canal.​

april 3, 2021 the marshall report
In an article titled, “Trafficked Children, Bodies, Weapons Found on Evergreen Ship Blocking Suez Canal”, by Judy Byington, 4-2-2021- it states that over a thousand trafficked children and dead bodies have been rescued out of shipping containers in the Suez Canal by US Navy Seals.
Sources say that as of this writing, children were still being rescued and bodies discovered in Evergreen’s 18,000+ containers. The containers were on an Evergreen Corporation ship that blocked the Canal from Tues. 23 March to Mon 29 March, causing billions in lost revenue to shipping companies internationally.
Sandstorm, winds blamed for container ship fiasco in Suez Canal -  FreightWaves

The Seals also found Weapons of Mass Destruction on the six story high vessel – which were believed destined to start a war in the Middle East.
Finally by Tues. the Evergreen cargo ship was loosened and taken to Bitter Lake in Egypt. By order of the Egyptian President, the containers were taken off the ship and searched by US Navy Seals.
Many other ships that were blocked in the Suez Canal last week were also discovered to be carrying weapons – believed to be used to start a war in the Middle-East. Why? The weapons were going to be given to the Muslims by the Israel Mossad.
Human traffickers were being arrested and cartels busted – losing critical income for their owners worldwide. The Deep State Operation was said to have lost 400 million $ an hour while the ships were stuck for a week – that would pale in comparison to what those children were undergoing.
“Evergreen vessels were having problems in ports all over the world. Why? Why were Special Ops US Navy Seals magically on the scene to rescue the children? Was the ship purposely run aground? It was rumored that holes in Microsoft software allowed someone, or ones, to hack into the Evergreen ship software, take over the steering and run it into the bank.
We may never be given the whole story. So far the Evergreen ship’s Capitan in the Suez Canal has refused to cooperate. Now why on earth would a Ship’s Captain not cooperate, unless there were major reasons? Won’t hand over the black box?” Read full story here: https://truth11.com/2021/04/03/traf...-found-on-evergreen-ship-blocking-suez-canal/
On March 29th, 2021, Navy Seal Michael Jaco put out a video on the Evergreen Ship giving his input stating “Evergreen Ship Will Be a Big Deep State Reveal!- Where Is the Ammo? Coming Soon as I Reveal Why! – Must Video!

This piece of shit is a pre-school 'teacher'. Who in their right minds would allow their child or grandchild to be in the same room as this creepaziod? They attempt to fuck up minds at the earliest age possible. They must be stopped!

By B911
April 13, 2022

joseph-gatt-696x365.jpg

CSLIFORNIA – “Game of Thrones” actor Joseph Gatt has been arrested for child sex crimes, the LAPD says. Gatt denies the allegations.

The LAPD says they are “are seeking to identify any additional victims after the arrest of 50-year-old Joseph Gatt, a Los Angeles resident.”

“On April 6, 2022, around 4:45 a.m., detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Juvenile Division, Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, served a residential search warrant at the home of Joseph Gatt in the area of 3rd Street and La Jolla, after they received information that Gatt had been engaged in online sexually explicit communication with a minor across state lines,” the LAPD said in a press release. “He was subsequently arrested by detectives for an outstanding felony warrant for California Penal Code 288.3(a) – Contact with a Minor for Sexual Offense.”

Gatt issued the following statement on social media:



Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Detective Denos Amarantos at 562-624-4027. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477) or go directly to www.lacrimestoppers.org.

PILOT ACCUSED OF DRIVING FROM DALLAS TO CONROE FOR SEX WITH 10-YEAR-OLD​

WHITTEMORE-TRAVIS-JARED-765x510.jpg


Multiple charges of Online Solicitation of a minor and possession of child pornography have been filed against Travis Jared Whittemore, 35, of Denton. The arrest was due to the hard work of a Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable Office who is assigned to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. According to court documents last week Whittemore traveled from Dallas to Conroe to have a sexual encounter with a child under the age of 10. Lora Beckman, Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney said Whittemore is a former Air Force pilot and now a commercial airline pilot. After confiscating his phone investigators found child pornography. She wonders, with all his travels if there are other encounters and hope victims will come forward. She said social media apps are like a playground and children are the target. Whittemore is being held on three $30,000 bonds and faces a maximum of 20-years in prison for the online solicitation of a minor charge and 10-years for each of the possession of child pornography charges. He will also have to register as a sex offender. His next court appearance is on May 9th in Judge Patty Maginnis’s Court.

The neat thing about it is Britain has LEOs that just carry billy clubs. That would be away to remove this thing from the Gene Pool.
He'd be thinking about it longer than with lead therapy but get the same result.

I think they mentioned that several years later when the child was older... Don't know what justification the CPS would have, but it's been suggested that they make stuff up to accomplish the task.

On those lines and the despicable nature of this legalized mob.

Rochdale victim: ‘I was groomed at 14, then the courts came for my children’​

Her evidence helped put abusers behind bars, yet ‘Amber’ was vilified by the authorities and says her torment will never end

Sun 17 Apr 2022


Between 2008 and 2010, a child abuse ring that came to be known as part of the “grooming gang” phenomenon operated in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Girls aged between 13 and 15 were trafficked, prostituted, raped and assaulted by the gang.

One victim was forced to have sex with at least 20 men in one night; another was forced to drink vodka, and was vomiting over the side of the bed while being raped by “countless men”.

The perpetrators would pass the girls to their friends, often to settle a debt. The victims, many of whom were from difficult backgrounds and therefore particularly vulnerable, were plied with drugs, alcohol and fast food, and then taken to “chill houses” across the north of England to be abused. One 13-year-old victim became pregnant and had an abortion. Some of the men involved were arrested, tried and found guilty. But not all.

One of the victims – given the fictitious name Amber in Three Girls, the BBC One drama about the abuse – was 14 when she was targeted by gang members. After a troubled upbringing, Amber had been placed on the child protection register as being at risk of sexual and emotional abuse and neglect. Craving love and attention, Amber was lured into a nightmare, subjected to repeated and often violent sexual abuse.

That nightmare should have ended with the arrest and trial of the perpetrators, but instead the police, Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and even social services treated her not as a victim but as a perpetrator.

Last Tuesday Amber, with two other victims of the Rochdale grooming gang, finally received an apology delivered personally by Stephen Watson, the chief constable of Greater Manchester police (GMP). Their treatment encompasses a range of catastrophic errors in one of the country’s most harrowing child sexual abuse scandals.

When we met in a hotel in Rochdale last month, Amber was accompanied by Maggie Oliver, a former police detective who walked out of the job in protest at the way Amber had been treated.

In 2009, when Amber was 16, uniformed officers arrived at her mother’s house, arrested her and took her to the police station.

can’t remember exactly what they said, but it was something along the lines of being a ‘madam’,” she recalled. “I didn’t know what that meant.” She was held in custody for hours before being released on bail. Her mother was not allowed to be with her during the interview, and there was no mention of an appropriate adult.

Amber had, under pressure from the abusers, taken some of her friends to the takeaway where the ringleaders operated from. She told me: “It wasn’t like a forced thing. It was like a casual, ‘Oh, bring your friends.’” She was a vulnerable child, being sexually abused, controlled and in fear.

No further action was taken against Amber, but it would be another two years before the CPS agreed that she should be treated as a victim and witness rather than a suspect. During that period, Amber – by now pregnant and living in a one-room flat – continued to be targeted by the grooming gangs. Although police interviewed a total of 56 men on suspicion of abuse, only a handful were tried. There were therefore many still walking free that had evaded detection.

Amber was also threatened at gunpoint by a man whom she subsequently identified to the police. Nothing happened. She told me: “Police weren’t arsed with us, really. They weren’t bothered … when you’re from a shit home. They don’t give a fuck when you’re not from a wealthy background.”

It was only when she met Oliver in early 2012 that things started to change. Oliver had been headhunted to join the grooming gangs case as detective and victim liaison officer in 2010 because of her experience working with vulnerable victims.

Amber was understandably reluctant to trust the police. But once the CPS advised the GMP that she was no longer seen as a suspect, she was persuaded by Oliver to begin a series of video interviews and ID parades.

I asked Amber what gave her the strength to give evidence to the police, after what she had gone through. She told me: “So it didn’t happen to anybody else. I didn’t want other people to feel how I felt.” Her courage and Oliver’s support resulted in a database of abusers whom she identified by names, car registrations, telephone numbers and addresses. It formed a large part of the police investigation that became known as Operation Span.

The ID parades were particularly gruelling for Amber, who did 12 in one day alone, correctly identifying 10 of her abusers. Afterwards, she told me: “I went home, put it to the back of my mind to be honest. I’ve got a box in the back of my head, and I just put it all in there and it’s locked away.”

But before what turned out to be the final interview, Oliver says she started to notice a change in tone from senior officers, and felt they were now deliberately trying to push this victim away. Then, shortly after the ID parade, Oliver was told that they were no longer going to “use” Amber’s evidence. She walked out, refusing to go along with this decision, and was forbidden from speaking to Amber.

The period during the buildup to the trial of the men accused of being part of the grooming gang, was dark for Amber. She says she was never informed by police either that she was no longer being treated as a victim, or that none of those she alleged to be her abusers was to be prosecuted for her abuse.

The trial of nine of the grooming gang was pending, and in the meantime, despite never having been informed, arrested or cautioned, Amber was added to the indictment by the CPS as a co-conspirator.

Without Amber’s initial evidence there might never have been a trial at all. She gave the police a list, at an early stage of Operation Span, with nicknames, telephone numbers and other details relating to offenders. She later went on to positively identify a number of offenders, which enabled charges to be brought against them all.

But in court, she was portrayed by the prosecution and defence as an assistant pimp. Because she was not involved in the trial, and therefore did not give evidence, she had no opportunity to defend herself. She was vilified and nicknamed in the press as the “Honey Monster”. Although a court order prevented her being named, everyone in her local community knew who she was.

After the court case, social services started to pursue Amber, with the aim of having her children removed. Just before the due date of her second baby, she was called to the family court, where an application was made to remove both children on the grounds that Amber was an abuser and a danger to children.

Finally, after a gruelling 18 months and several hearings, the judge threw the case out. Five years later she won an apology and compensation from social services.

In 2019, Amber, along with two other victims, with the help of the Centre for Women’s Justice, issued a civil claim for damages against GMP and the director of public prosecutions (DPP). While GMP has finally settled the claim, which includes the personal apology from the chief constable, the DPP has so far resisted. In response to Amber’s claim that it was wrong to name her on the indictment, it says it was “both legally and tactically the correct course to take”.

To date, the CPS has not accepted any failure on its part and instead continues to herald this case as the first successful prosecution of a grooming gang. While this is true, Amber believes that she was used as a scapegoat.

“What the police and CPS did to me was worse than the abuse … The apology will be a kind of a weight lifted from me.” But the nightmare will never really be over. Amber still sees those whom she says raped, beat and tortured her, out and about in Rochdale. “One delivered a takeaway to my house a few weeks back,” she tells me.

Finally, she has been exonerated. She has forced the police and social services to apologise to her for their behaviour.


“I agreed to help the police to stop it happening to others,” Amber wrote to Oliver in the midst of her campaign for justice. “I trusted police … that I would be helped this time. I gave hours of interviews, reliving all the abuse. I felt sick, got upset … nothing never no one from police came to me to explain why I was no longer going to court. Not one charged never, why?

“My name has been dragged through the mud. I push thoughts about the abuse out of my head. And I’ve done nothing wrong – I was a victim of these men at the age of 14. I should’ve been helped, not punished.”

The NSPCC offers support to children on 0800 1111, and adults concerned about a child on 0808 800 5000. The National Association for People Abused in Childhood (Napac) offers support for adult survivors on 0808 801 0331.

I gave hours of interviews, reliving all the abuse. I felt sick, got upset … nothing never no one from police came to me to explain why I was no longer going to court. Not one charged never, why?

“My name has been dragged through the mud. I push thoughts about the abuse out of my head. And I’ve done nothing wrong – I was a victim of these men at the age of 14. I should’ve been helped, not punished.”

The NSPCC offers support to children on 0800 1111, and adults concerned about a child on 0808 800 5000. The National Association for People Abused in Childhood (Napac) offers support for adult survivors on 0808 801 0331.

None of those perpetrators look WASP ? (Hmmm)

Professor says minors can be 'enthusiastically involved' in 'initiating sexual activities with adults'​

"We can't be effective in working with them if we assume that all such relationships start with a predatory or criminally inclined adult," Professor Finkelhor said.

Professor says minors can be 'enthusiastically involved' in 'initiating sexual activities with adults'

Professor David Finkelhor of the University of New Hampshire participated in a March 23 talk discussing the "elements of voluntary participation" by juveniles involved in sex crimes, saying that when trying to prevent sex crimes against children, it's key to realize that in some cases, it is the children themselves that are "initiating sexual activities with adults." Finkelhor is the Director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at UNH.

"If young people are initiating sexual activities with adults, or enthusiastically involved," he said, "we can't be effective in working with them if we assume that all such relationships start with a predatory or criminally inclined adult. As we've seen in the discussion, young people bridle at being forced into this box of being seen as being the victim of a predator."

These remarks were made during a Haruv USA lecture about the "Implications for Prevention and Response" for sex crimes wherein there are "elements of voluntary participation" by the minors involved in those crimes.


It is Finkelhof's view that "there are reasons for learning about what the dynamics are and how to talk about them so that we can better help the young people who are in these situations."

He goes on to fully say that "even the most voluntary of these relationships are considered sex crimes." Finkelhor notes as well that sexual relationships wherein a minor "voluntarily" engages in sex with adults is a controversial topic of conversation precisely because "discussions of voluntary relationships to some people, opens the door for ex-offenders to feel like this is something that they can do."

It is as part of his research into how to identify, prevent, and treat the problems of child sexual abuse, child victimization,child maltreatment, and family violence that he was invited to speak with Haruv, and to give his perspective on those crimes.

Finkelhor described several kinds of underage sex crimes, many of which can be identified primarily by the ages of those involved, and discussed the reasons why these laws are in place.


"In some states, in some jurisdictions, there are restrictions for 16 and 17-year-olds, so their prohibitions are that it's illegal for a 16 or 17-year-old to have a relationship, say with an adult who is more than five years older than they are. And one of the problems in this area is nobody knows exactly where the law should create these distinctions. There's not good enough research on issues related to maturity with regard to sexual behavior, that allows a clear demarcation here," Finkelhor said. He noted that there can be elements of voluntary participation in statutory sex crimes, wherein juveniles engage in sex with adults who are at least five years older than they are. Statutory rape, he said, is "much narrower than statutory sex crimes in general."

Finkelhor differentiated between statutory sex crimes, which can be assessed simply by the ages of those involved, and statutory rape, where coercion is involved.

"If I were going to describe a statutory victim, I would say that it was a relationship between a juvenile and adult, it was illegal under the age of consent statutes. And that does not involve the degree of coercion or manipulation sufficient to qualify it under criminal statutes as a forcible crime. So it would be something that is classified as a statutory sex crime, but that also does not have the elements that would allow it to be prosecuted as a more forcible kind of sexual crime. Now, one of the big problems in this area is that I don't think people have talked enough and thought through why it is that we have these laws and these restrictions," he said.

For Finkelhor, the reasons behind these laws need to be made more explicit so that both minors and adults can know exactly why they are in place, and must be obeyed. His view about understanding the complicity of the minor in the case stems from the idea that, in many cases, minors are easily led by predatory adults because those children feel that the predatory adults care about them. Finkelhor's goal is to steer both children and adults away from engaging in these kinds of relationships, and notes that the current messaging may not be enough to dissuade either young people or adults from doing so.

To minors, Finkelhor believes that those underage persons need to be treated as responsible persons with agency, suggesting that "for young people, it seems to me, they need to have more of a perspective on what the problems are with relationships with older partners, why they don't work out, why we're not just saying, you know, 'you're too young to do this, you can't think responsibly about these kinds of relationships, if we're we're taking it out of your hand.' I think they need to understand from their point of view, why these relationships don't work out, why the age difference turns out to be a problem, why they need to have somebody who is more going through the experiences of life that they're going through.

"They also may need to know, not that they're being restricted from having a relationship that they want to have, but also that there are dangers that they are creating for this person who they say that they want to have as a lover or friend. 'How would you feel if this person went to jail as a result of the relationship that you're carrying on with this person?'

"And in some sense that keeps from infantilizing them and treats them as though they're the responsible person. 'You have power in this situation, in fact, potentially very damaging dangerous power. So you need to be careful with it.'

"They also need information about how to decide on who's an appropriate romantic partner that there are people who may be very nice to them very considerate of them, but who really are primarily interested in having sex with them and don't really have a long term commitment to them.

"What are the signs of a healthy relationship? Someone you can you actually can trust? Is this really something that is a healthy relationship? And what are some signals that you're being exploited, if somebody is asking you to do things that you're a little bit uncomfortable with, or rushing things, or asking you to hide what you're doing, these are signals that you are being exploited.

"They also need to have specific skills, and how to extricate themselves. Because sometimes, young people get involved in these relationships, and don't know how to break them off. Especially when the older partner is doing a lot of things to ingratiate themselves and make them feel indebted. And so they need to really think through how they could say 'no,' how they could break it off, what the strategies might be, that would be effective in this.

"We also need to educate the friend group, and the rest of the bystander environment. Because frequently, young people talk about these relationships with their friends, and the friends don't feel authorized or empowered enough, or there'll be a violation of their friendship, to make judgments about what their friend is doing. And to give them some reasons why they might want to discourage their friend from engaging in this kind of activity and really being a bit tough on their friends," he said of the ways that minors could be dissuaded from participating in relationships with predatory adults.

For Finkelhor, much of this prevention should be rolled into "comprehensive sex education," which to his view, mostly teaches children and teens avoidance strategies as to how to know adults are trying to take advantage of them, but do not account for a child or teen's feelings that they want to engage in this behavior with an adult.

"I think a big problem is that we do it trying to do a lot of prevention without actually doing it as part of comprehensive sex education, which is what we need," Finkelhor said.

"But it's very difficult to get accepted in a lot of places. At least I know that's true in the United States. But that's probably the best way. Teen curiosity about sex is an important part of what prompts some of these inappropriate relationships and when they're getting good information. That can be another way of discouraging there are investigation and treatment issues here. I think it needs to be recognized that when these relationships do come to light, the teams feel the young people feel ashamed and humiliated, they may be outed about their homosexuality. They're oftentimes angry at the parents and police for both interfering in their relationship with their autonomy. And you know, not understanding them and infantilizing them," he said.

"They oftentimes the ally with the offender, they refuse to cooperate, to do a better job on these investigations. It may be important for advocates and police not to automatically treat the youth as though they're a victim. They can treat them they can talk with them about the reason why we have these laws and why such people who violate these laws need to be prosecuted, but they don't need to necessarily treat the victim as the treat the youth as a victim if they that's not the way they see themselves.

"They need to anticipate resistance and anger and empathize with those reactions, and not just automatically discount the feelings that they have about the person or the relationship or the insult that they've experienced as a result of the discovery. Emphasizing the societal justification for the criminal justice action, I think is very important. Victims need time to process. They need a sense of the options that they have about how they want to respond to this and it may be useful for them to connect with other statutory victims so they can support each other and get a sense of what it is that they're in for," Finkelhor said.

‘Beyond troubling’: Current, former government officials tied to human trafficking probe in Georgia​

Maria Perez, Drew Favakeh and Abraham Kenmore, USA TODAY NETWORK
Wed, April 20, 2022

Two Georgia labor officials whose jobs involved protecting or advocating for farmworkers have links to one of the largest U.S. human trafficking cases ever prosecuted involving foreign agricultural laborers brought here on seasonal visas.

One individual indicted in the case, Brett Donovan Bussey, left government service in 2018. The other, Jorge Gomez, remains on the job and hasn’t been accused of wrongdoing, but officers searched his home in connection with the case and his sister and nephew are among those indicted.

In October, a grand jury indicted Bussey and 23 others for conspiring to engage in forced labor and other related crimes. Federal prosecutors say the defendants required guest farmworkers to pay illegal fees to obtain jobs, withheld their IDs so they could not leave, made them work for little or no pay, housed them in unsanitary conditions and threatened them with deportation and violence.

Two workers died in the heat, according to the indictment. Court records say five workers were kidnapped and one of them was raped.

All defendants who have entered pleas so far have pleaded not guilty in the case, named “Operation Blooming Onion.” Some of the workers harvested onions, the state’s official vegetable.

The indictment doesn’t mention the links to the Georgia government, information USA TODAY, the Savannah Morning News and the Augusta Chronicle pieced together from public records and a review of social media posts.

A New Jersey Catholic diocese agrees to pay $87.5M to settle sex abuse lawsuits​

April 20, 2022

TRENTON, N.J. — A New Jersey Catholic diocese has agreed to pay $87.5 million to settle claims involving clergy sex abuse with some 300 alleged victims in one of the largest cash settlements involving the Catholic Church in the United States.

The agreement between the Diocese of Camden, which encompasses six counties in southern New Jersey on the outskirts of Philadelphia, and plaintiffs was filed with U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Camden on Tuesday.

The settlement must still go before a U.S. bankruptcy judge. If approved, the settlement would exceed the nearly $85 million settlement in 2003 in the clergy abuse scandal in Boston, although it's less than other settlements in California and Oregon.

"I want to express my sincere apology to all those who have been affected by sexual abuse in our Diocese," Bishop Dennis Sullivan said in a statement. "My prayers go out to all survivors of abuse and I pledge my continuing commitment to ensure that this terrible chapter in the history of the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey never happens again."

Details about what allegedly happened to the roughly 300 victims were not included in the proposed settlement, according to an attorney for some 70 of the victims.

"This settlement with the Bishop of Camden is a powerful advance in accountability," said Jeff Anderson, an attorney representing 74 of the roughly 300 survivors. "The credit goes to the survivors for standing up for themselves and the truth."

The alleged sex abuse occurred over decades​

The alleged sexual abuse occurred from the 1950s into the 1990s, Anderson said, but primarily unfolded in the 1960s and 1970s.

The diocese said the deal calls for setting up a trust, which will be funded over four years by the diocese and "related Catholic entities" to compensate survivors of sexual abuse. Part of the deal also requires maintaining or "enhancing" protocols to protect children.

Abuse survivors who filed a claim in the bankruptcy could get $290,000, according to victims' attorneys Jay Mascolo and Jason Amala.

The agreement comes more than two years after New Jersey expanded the window of its civil statute of limitations to allow for victims of sexual abuse by priests to seek legal compensation. The legislation lets child victims sue up until they turn 55 or within seven years of their first realization that the abuse caused them harm. The previous statute of limitations was age 20 or two years after first realizing the abuse caused harm.

The diocese, like others across the country, had filed for bankruptcy amid a torrent of lawsuits — up to 55, according to court records — stemming from the relaxed statute of limitation.

In 2019, New Jersey's five Catholic dioceses listed more than 180 priests who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors over a span of several decades, joining more than two dozen other states that have named suspected abusers in the wake of a landmark grand jury report in Pennsylvania in 2018.

Many priests on the lists were deceased, and others were removed from ministry.
