PEDOGATE: Ghislaine Maxwell Will Not Name Names, Says Bloom

NEW YORK — Ghislaine Maxwell is unlikely to cooperate with authorities by naming other high profile members of Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile ring, says victims’ rights lawyer, Lisa Bloom. Instead, Maxwell will likely move to have the case against her dismissed.

“Ninety-five percent of cases end in plea bargains, so that would not surprise me, but I don’t think at this stage, prosecutors would give her a deal if it did not include very serious prison time, and I don’t think she would accept that at this point,” said Bloom.

“I know a lot of people think Ghislaine Maxwell is going to ‘sing like a canary’, and talk about other powerful people, and that that’s why she was arrested, Bloom added. “I don’t agree with that, I think she was the primary target, she was arrested for her own actions, she may have information about others but I don’t think that would give her much lighter a deal.”

Legal analysts say that means there’s no real incentive for Bloom to cooperate with prosecutors to expose the names of other powerful members of Epstein’s pedophile ring. That, they say leaves many other children at high risk for molestation.

As previously reported, Maxwell is said to be in possession of a secret stash of sex tapes that would expose many of Epstein’s acquaintances.

The now deceased billionaire pedophile was known to have his mansions filled with hidden surveillance cameras as a means of collecting blackmail material for use on his guests.

“The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirreled away could end up being her get-out-of-jail card if the authorities are willing to trade,” one of Maxwell’s former friends told The Daily Mail. “She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers.”

Maxwell faced her first court appearance on four counts of sex trafficking and two counts of perjury this week. She was denied bail. Her trial is scheduled for July, 2021.

RESCUED: 123 children saved in Michigan as Trump administration’s crackdown on child sex trafficking rages on

DETROIT, Mich. — 123 of Michigan’s 301 missing children were recovered from what is believed to be a child sex trafficking ring as part of a joint effort by state and federal agencies, law enforcement has announced.

The recovery operation, called MISafeKid, was described as a “missing juvenile sweep” according to a release by the U.S. Marshals Service.

The sting was carried out by the Marshal’s Service’s Detroit Missing Child Recovery Unit in conjunction with Michigan State Police and Wayne County law enforcement agencies.

All the children located were “interviewed about potentially being sexually victimized or used in a sex trafficking ring during their period of time that they were deemed missing” said a law enforcement spokesperson.

Using information obtained from the 301 missing children’s case files, the Marshals Service said, officers “began investigating their whereabouts by visiting last known addresses, friend’s homes and schools in hopes of finding them in a safe place.”

“The message to the missing children and their families that we wish to convey is that we will never stop looking for you,” the US Marshals Service said in a press release.

The successful recovery mission is just the latest in an ongoing effort by federal law enforcement agencies to locate missing and exploited children who have become victims of the child sex trade.

In June, approximately 150 were arrested on child sex trafficking charges in Georgia by FBI officials as part of a sting operation called “Operation Safe Summer”. One hundred and sixty children, some as young as 3-years-old, were rescued and taken into protective custody as part of that effort.

President Trump’s ongoing war against child sex trafficking, which he has mandated as a priority in his administration, has resulted in thousands of arrests nationwide, mostly unreported by the mainstream media.

PEDOGATE CRACKDOWN: Feds nail 5 more on charges of child sex trafficking as Trump administration’s war against pedophiles rages on

HOOD RIVER, Ore. – Five suspects have been arrested as part of an ongoing child sex sting operation in conjunction with federal agencies, the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement this week.

On July 17, the sheriff’s office worked in a team effort with the Portland FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force to locate and detain people who investigative efforts showed to be looking to have sex with minors.

Through the course joint state and federal operation, police arrested five people on charges of attempting to “solicit a child to engage in sexual contact or sexually explicit conduct and intentionally takes a substantial step toward physically meeting.”

Details of the suspects arrested are as follows:

Daniel Garcia, 23, of The Dalles was charged with first-degree online sexual corruption of a minor and luring a minor

John Grover Morgan III, 30, of Rhododendron was charged with first-degree online sexual corruption of a minor and luring a minor

Francisco Ramirez Rendon, 27, of The Dalles was charged with first-degree online sexual corruption of a minor

Brandon David Backman, 44, of Hood River was charged with first-degree online sexual corruption of a minor

A 16-year-old from White Salmon, Wash. was charged with first-degree attempted sodomy

Per federal officials:

“Portland FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force consists of FBI agents and task force officers from the Beaverton Police Department, the Portland Police Bureau, the Tigard Police Department, the Hillsboro Police Department, and the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. The FBI’s CETF is committed to locating and arresting those who prey on children, as well as recovering underage victims of sex trafficking and child pornography.

The Columbia Gorge Major Crime’s Team includes detectives from The Oregon State Police, The Dalles Police Department, Wasco County Sheriff’s Office, Hood River Police Department and Hood River County Sheriff’s Office.”

The latest arrests are part of an ongoing effort by the Trump administration to crack down on child predators and child sex traffickers.

Since his inauguration in January 2017, thousands of child predators have been arrested. Trump quietly made the effort a priority within his administration when he first took office.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CRACKDOWN ON PEDOGATE CONTINUES: Man faces federal charges of sex with child; Possession of child porn

CARMEL, Ind. (ABC 6 News) — A Carmel swim coach is facing federal charges over allegations he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with an underage girl.

John C. Goelz, 29, was arrested on Tuesday on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography.

According to U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler, federal investigators learned last month that Goelz might be involved in an inappropriate relationship with a female athlete that he coached at the Carmel Swim Club and the Carmel High School Swim Team, where he was a volunteer assistant coach.

Investigators were allegedly able to obtain screenshots of text messages between Goelz and the juvenile that indicated the two had a sexual relationship dating back to February 2018.

A search warrant executed on Goelz’s residence and cell phone also turned up evidence of multiple sexual encounters between the two, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including a cellphone video depicting sexual activity between the two.

The investigation was worked jointly by officers from Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Hamilton County Metro Child Exploitation Task Force.

Following the announcement of Goelz’s arrest, Carmel Clay Schools Superintendent Dr. Michael Beresford and Carmel Swim Club President Kristin Sherman released a joint statement:

“Dear Carmel Clay Schools Swim Team Families and Carmel Swim Club Families,

Carmel Police notified us that John Goelz was arrested earlier this week. We wanted to share with you the following information we have received from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We have been advised that Mr. Goelz had an inappropriate relationship with a female Carmel High School student-athlete.

Mr. Goelz served as a volunteer assistant coach for the Carmel High school swim team and was also a coach for the Carmel Swim Club. He is not a teacher or otherwise employed by Carmel Clay Schools. He is no longer affiliated with either organization.

We continue to be in communication with law enforcement in this ongoing investigation.

We are shocked and deeply saddened this has occurred. We will evaluate the situation as more information becomes available and will continue to do all we can to keep our children safe. We ask that you respect the privacy of the family involved during this difficult time.”

As of Thursday afternoon, Goelz was being held in the custody of the U.S. Marshal’s Service, with a detention hearing scheduled for July 10.

Anyone with information about this or other possible cases of child exploitation was asked to contact the Hamilton County Metro Child Exploitation Task Force at 317-595-3361.

PEDOGATE BOMBSHELL: Senate report suggests Hillary Clinton “gifted” an unknown number of children to child traffickers

Washington, D.C. — A 2016 Senate report has surfaced which reveals that Hillary Clinton’s State Department may have “gifted an unknown number” of children directly into the hands of child sex traffickers.

According to the report, after failing to follow up with sponsors assigned to care for the children, mostly migrants, many of the children were sold into the underworld of child sex trafficking.

“Each year, tens of thousands of children enter the United States, unaccompanied by their parents or relatives. If taken into U.S. custody, those children are designated “unaccompanied alien children” or “UACs,”” the report states.

“Congress has tasked the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with finding appropriate homes in which to place UACs temporarily, pending the resolution of immigration proceedings. The agency within HHS that performs that function is the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). Through procedures described in this report, HHS attempts to place each UAC with a suitable adult sponsor—someone who can care for them and ensure their appearance at their immigration hearings. In carrying out this responsibility, federal law requires HHS to ensure that UACs are protected from human trafficking and other forms of abuse.”

“Over a period of four months in 2014, however, HHS allegedly placed a number of UACs in the hands of a ring of human traffickers who forced them to work on egg farms in and around Marion, Ohio, leading to a federal criminal indictment,” the report continues.

“According to the indictment, the minor victims were forced to work six or seven days a week, twelve hours per day. The traffickers repeatedly threatened the victims and their families with physical harm, and even death, if they did not work or surrender their entire paychecks. The indictment alleges that the defendants “used a combination of threats, humiliation, deprivation, financial coercion, debt manipulation, and monitoring to create a climate of fear and helplessness that would compel [the victims’] compliance.”

“The causes of the surge of UACs are disputed, but all stakeholders, including HHS, agree that one reason UACs come to this country is that they are “brought into the United States by human trafficking rings,” the report went on. “According to the State Department’s 2015 Trafficking in Persons Report, “[t]he United States is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, transgender individuals, and children—both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals—subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor.” Human trafficking involves transporting or harboring human beings, often for financial gain, through the use of fraud, force, or coercion.”

New York Magazine reports that local law enforcement officials uncovered the operation last year, prompting the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations to open an inquiry into the federal government’s handling of child migrants.

“It is intolerable that human trafficking — modern-day slavery — could occur in our own backyard,” Senator Rob Portman, (R), Ohio, who serves as chairman of the subcommittee, told the New York Times. “But what makes the Marion cases even more alarming is that a U.S. government agency was responsible for delivering some of the victims into the hands of their abusers.”

“Whatever your views on immigration policy, everyone can agree that the administration has a responsibility to ensure the safety of the migrant kids that have entered government custody until their immigration court date,” Portman added.

As documented in the report, The US Department of Health and Human Services claimed that it lacked the funds and authorities to properly screen and vet the sponsors that wound up receiving the more than ten thousand children who crossed the border into the U.S. unattended during the course of the Obama administration. However, the investigation also discovered that HHS did not spend all of the money allocated to it for handling the crisis.

According to its own records, HHS placed 90,000 migrant children into sponsor care between the years of 2013 and 2015. Many of their whereabouts are now still unknown.

HSI Seattle, with assistance from the ICAC, executed a state search warrant at Wood’s residence. Images depicting child pornography were subsequently located on Wood’s digital media, and law enforcement discovered that Wood shared a bedroom with a potential female minor victim. Law enforcement coordinated with Child Protective Services and the HSI Seattle victim assistance specialist.

HSI Seattle arrested Jeremy James Cherry, a registered sex offender, via federal complaint for possessing child pornography. HSI Seattle, with assistance from the King County Sheriff’s Office, executed a federal search warrant at Cherry’s residence in Auburn, Washington. Videos depicting child pornography were subsequently located on Cherry’s digital media.

HSI Tacoma, with assistance from HSI Seattle, arrested Donald Delateur at his residence in Olympia, Washington, on federal receipt of child pornography charges. Delateur is a previously convicted registered sex offender. During the execution of the search warrant at Delateur’s residence, agents discovered child pornography on his computer.

HSI Blaine special agents executed a state search warrant at the Anacortes, Washington, residence of Josh Robinson, and subsequently arrested Robinson for receipt of child pornography. This investigation was initiated by the Seattle Police Department who discovered Robinson was sharing child pornography files via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing network. The police department transferred the investigation to HSI Blaine under Seattle ICAC Operation Broken Heart for further investigation.

HSI Portland and task force officers arrested James Rolla at his Vancouver, Washington, residence on state possession of child pornography charges. A state search warrant was executed at Rolla’s residence, and images of child pornography were found on devices belonging to him.

PEDOGATE CRACKDOWN: Police find 51 of 76 missing Michigan children as Trump administration’s war on child sex trafficking continues

FLINT, Mich — Dozens of Michigan children who had been reported missing were rescued on Thursday as part of an ongoing effort by the Trump administration to crack down on child sex traffickers.

According to a report published by WEIY-TV, 51 of the state’s 76 reported missing children were uncovered as part of a sting carried out by state and local police.

Investigators told WEYI that the goal was to locate children who had slipped through the cracks after being reported missing from school and, or foster care.

Police say many of the children who were located were victims of human trafficking.

The event was just the latest in a string of efforts by the federal government to rescue children who are at risk of human trafficking.

A sting on the sex-trafficking trade in the metro Atlanta area last week netted dozens of arrests and led to the rescue of approximately 160 children who had been forced to work as sex slaves.

Approximately 150 arrests were made in accordance with the Atlanta bust, known as Operation Safe Summer, and the children rescued, some as young as 3-years-old, were taken into protective custody.

President Trump’s battle against child sex trafficking, which he has made a priority in his administration, has resulted in thousands of arrests nationwide, mostly unreported by the mainstream media.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell says his officers will continue to work until the remaining missing children are located.

PEDOGATE ALERT: California university website calls for children to engage in ‘sexual play’; watch porn

Santa Barbara, Calif. — A public university in California is facing backlash for featuring a controversial website that encourages parents to allow children as young as 4-years old to engage in sexual activity and watch porn.

According to a report published by The Fix, The University of California, Santa Barbara’s sociology department hosts an online platform called “SexInfo Online” geared toward answering questions on sexuality.

The platform, according to the website, is operated by students “who have studied advanced topics in human sexuality.” On it appear multiple photos of children as young as 2, who appear to be kissing.

“The majority of sexual play between children takes place between the ages of 4 and 7,” the website states in a section titled “Childhood Sexuality.”

“Children might display affection to their friends by hugging and kissing, or touching each other’s genitals, which is perfectly normal. Parents should not react in a negative way because children are just exploring.”

The site adds that parents should intervene only “if the acts are non-consensual or hurtful.”

But a section of the website causing the most controversy, “Talking To Your Children About Sex,” encourages children to allow their children to watch pornography.

“It is important that children understand that viewing pornography is a normal habit, and that they do not need to be ashamed of it,” the site states.

Further, the site calls for parents to have no say in whether or not their child is too young for sex.

“Children and teens do not want to be told what to do, especially when it comes to personal topics such as sex,” the website states. “It is important that parents do not lecture their children, but instead try to present information and have an open discussion about sex. Adolescents will make their own decisions regarding sex and it is up to the parent to give them the information and resources needed to make informed decisions.”

Calls for statement to a University of California, Santa Barbara representative were met with “no comment”.

PEDOGATE: Trump administration moves on child sex trafficking ring; 160 children rescued, say authorities

Atlanta, GA — A sting on the sex-trafficking trade in the metro Atlanta area netted dozens of arrests and led to the rescue of approximately 160 children who had been forced to work as sex slaves, the FBI announced this week.

The sting, known as Operation Safe Summer, had been ordered by the Trump administration as part of its ongoing war against child sex trafficking.

Approximately 150 arrests were made in accordance with the bust and the children, some as young as 3-years-old, were taken into protective custody.

“They are crimes of special concern to the FBI and to law enforcement generally,” assistant Special Agent in Charge Matt Alcoke told WSB-TV’s Mike Petchenik. “Because the victims are so vulnerable as children and because the offenders could be from just about any walk of life, from a gang member all the way up to someone who is highly successful and wealthy.”

Alcoke said the operation was timed to interfere with a trade that preys on children during summer months.

“It’s important for those of us who are responsible for the children, the parents, the guardians, the older siblings, to not let children fall away (from) those strongly centered circles of importance,” Alcoke said.

Among those charged is Trevey Parks, a child predator Alcoke said is among one of the worst he’d ever seen.

“Trevey Parks is one of the worst of the worst,” Alcoke said. “He was ultimately arrested in a joint effort by us and the local police.

The arrests in the metro-Atlanta area encompassed a 6 county area, many of which include rural and upscale areas.

“A lot of people don’t realize these things happen here,” department Alpharetta Police Department spokesman Howard Miller said.

The latest sting on human trafficking is part of President Trump’s ongoing agenda to crackdown on child sex trafficking, which he has mandated as a priority in his administration. The effort has resulted in thousands of arrests nationwide, mostly unreported by the mainstream media.
