Inmate Admits Sex Assaults at Women’s Prison… ‘She’ Used to Be Named Steve


Reported By Malachi Bailey | September 12, 2018 at

3:50pm

An inmate in a British female prison sexually assaulted multiple fellow inmates, and it turns out the predator is actually a man, formerly known as Steve, who “identifies” as a lesbian woman.

These days, according to The Telegraph, the 52-year-old is officially known as Karen White, but was born with the name Stephen Wood. At the time of the assaults, White was undergoing sex reassignment, but had not had surgery, The Telegraph reported.

White didn’t hesitate to prey on the female inmates. Within weeks of arriving in prison, he began making lewd comments toward another inmate before he forced himself on her, according to the Telegraph.

That was not White’s only victim. He was accused of four sexual assaults in total between September and November last year, according to The Guardian. He confessed to at least two of the attacks.

He was finally moved to an all-male prison, according to PJ Media.

It’s good that he won’t be able to assault any more women in his new prison, but he should have been in the all-male prison to begin with.

The female prison where White committed his assaults did not only have female prisoners. It also had children. The prison contains a mother-and-baby unit that can accommodate up to 10 infants aged under 2, according to The Times.

This fact becomes even more shocking considering White’s past convictions. White is a convicted pedophile who was previously jailed in 2001 for an attack on a child, according to PJ Media.

Putting a convicted male pedophile into an all-female prison with infants and toddlers is not just a simple mistake. This is an example of negligence in the name of being “progressive.”

Social media users were disgusted at the news.

The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Justice claimed that it made a mistake by not looking at the predator’s history when he was transferred to the female prison, but said the offender’s history is typically taken into account. Considering the number of transgender sexual predators in prison in the U.K., it’s a mistake could easily happen again. A government survey found that there were 125 total transgender inmates in England and Wales, and 60 of them were serving time for a sexual offence, according to BBC News.

It is likely that there are even more because the list doesn’t include those who already have a gender recognition certificate.

As long as men are moved into female prisons, it is inevitable that human error will allow another case like this one to fall through the cracks.

In the United States, President Donald Trump’s administration has taken steps to avoid something similar here by sensibly relying on an inmate’s biological sex to determine what facility the inmate will be house in, according to a report in The New York Times in May. (Naturally, The Times didn’t like that one bit. The headline was “Federal Prisons Roll Back Rules Protecting Transgender People.”)

But U.K. prison officials are finding out what the Trump administration already knows — and liberals and The New York Times will never accept.

Men shouldn’t be put into women’s prisons at all.

White House Brushes Off Plight of U.S. Marine Jailed in Mexico


Obamacare

By Susan Jones / October 2, 2014 – 6:08 AM

tahmooressi(CNSNews.com) – It’s the State Department’s problem.

Imperial Islamic President ObamaOn the same day Republican lawmakers urged President Obama to do something about an American war veteran languishing in a Mexican jail, a White House spokesman indicated it’s not going to happen.

“My colleagues at the State Department are very focused on this issue,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at Wednesday’s briefing. “And so, I’d refer you to them for their efforts to work with the Mexican government.”

Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says he asked Vice President Biden to ask President Obama to call the Mexican president directly to urge leniency for Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi — but apparently it hasn’t happened.

“I don’t believe it has (happened),” Earnest responded, “and that’s because this is an issue that is being handled through the State Department and through the existing channels at the State Department.”

The State Department told reporters on Wednesday that it sent a representative to Wednesday’s hearing of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee, but the committee did not invite anyone from the State Department to testify.

As CNSNews.com reported, Sgt. Tahmooressi, who served honorably in Afghanistan, was later diagnosed with PTSD. Back home in the U.S., he was living out of his truck when he made a wrong turn into Mexico six months ago, with three legally purchased guns in his possession.

Tahmooressi says he took a wrong turn near the border and did not intend to end up in Mexico at all, but he’s been jailed ever since, because it is illegal to bring guns into Mexico. So far, all pleas for his release have been rejected.

At a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) said he is “mystified” that President Obama found time to negotiate with the Taliban for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked away from his unit in Afghanistan, but couldn’t find time to “call our ally, the Mexican president, to appeal to him on behalf of our Marine.”primary

Salmon said Tahmooressi is a “war hero” who needs help that Mexico cannot provide for his PTSD; and Salmon also said Andrew deserves help from President Obama.

Other committee Republicans also faulted Obama for not raising the Tahmooressi issue directly with the Mexican president.

“Shame on President Obama for not making a 30-second telephone call to the president of Mexico and getting this thing settled a long time ago,” Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R_Calif.) said.

“He’s the commander-in-chief. That means he’s personally the commander of people who volunteer to fight our wars. And if they don’t think that cares enough about him to make a phone call, what are they — you know, they’re going to feel they’re betrayed, and they are being betrayed.”

Rohrabacher said he knows that Sgt. Tahmooressi did not do anything intentionally wrong: “I went to Tijuana, and I retraced his steps…And on the way back, when I drove out of that parking lot and made that turn to the left, it appeared — I can testify to everybody today — it appeared that I was going into California.

“And once you made that turn, there was no going back until you were in Mexico. There is no doubt that this problem was not caused by any intention of Andrew to in some way not respect the law of Mexico. And that — that is very evident.”

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) received applause when he urged Obama to “pick up the phone and do your job on behalf of our Marine.”

Congressman pleads for Christian pastor’s life

Says secret diplomacy wrong, State should make noise about American jailed in Iran

Published: 15 hours ago

author-image Michael Carl

Michael Carl is a veteran journalist with overseas military experience and experience as a political consultant. He also has two Master’s Degrees, is a bi-vocational pastor and lives with his family in the Northeast United States.

Saeed Abedini and his family.

A Texas congressman charges the State Department is mishandling the case of American pastor Saeed Abedini, who is being held in an Iranian prison.

Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said federal officials appear to be using quiet diplomacy in Abedini’s case.

That approach, he contends, is the opposite of what should be done.

“The State Department almost universally when it’s a hostage situation, and this is really what it is, [stays] quiet for fear of doing harm. And I think it’s the exact opposite. When you stay quiet, you will cause harm, and it doesn’t raise the problem to the people who are in charge,” he said.

Stockman said the Iranians originally intended to use the pastor as a “bargaining chip.”

“You know, we had some of their officers in the Quds Force, and the Iranians were going to bargain for their release.

But apparently, the Obama administration while negotiating just traded the prisoners without getting anything in return, which kind of surprised the Iranians,” Stockman said.

“Normally there’s an exchange and we got nothing in return, when in reality we should have pushed for the release of the pastor,” said the congressman.

He said now he would “encourage” the American people to get more involved directly in Abedini’s case, because he’s not seeing much input from the public.

“I would like to see something more visible and the family actually get involved more, going on TV and other things,” Stockman said.

American Center for Law and Justice Executive Director Jordan Sekulow agrees. More public involvement is what is needed in light of the government’s nearly uniform silence on the American pastor, he said.

“The issue is getting the attention of Congress. I think the petitions have worked to the extent that they got Congress’ attention. We’ve had congressional hearings. They have done what they can and they will continue to help. But, they can only do so much,” Sekulow said.

Sekulow acknowledges that Congress isn’t the State Department, but petitions can still generate some attention.

“We’ve seen bipartisan support and we’ve seen the State Department have to pay attention,” Sekulow said. “We wouldn’t have had the congressional hearings, the message … to Secretary Kerry, and we wouldn’t have had the White House make any statements at all but for the American people speaking up.”

International Christian Concern Middle East analyst Todd Daniels believes citizen action can be effective, if it mobilizes larger sections of the population.

“The strategy to engage other parties that have a vested interest is certainly possible as part of the overall efforts to see Saeed be released, as sanctions on certain sectors are being lifted,” Daniels said.

Human rights activists have been disappointed with the limited amount of attention shown to Abedini’s case.

However, Middle East Forum President Daniel Pipes isn’t surprised by the lack of government engagement. He said the U. S. government historically has shown little interest in Iran’s human rights record.

“The U.S. government historically has downplayed human rights issues vis-à-vis the Islamic Republic of Iran, focusing instead on terrorism and the nuclear buildup,” Pipes said.

He said it adds a burden for citizen groups.

“This leaves NGOs in the unenviable position of trying to raise human rights issues, which are largely ignored by Tehran. Unless Washington and the other powers include human rights, this will not change,” Pipes said.

Daniels believes NGOs and the U.N. could play a role.

“There may be steps remaining for pushing for international bodies to review his case for what appear to be irregularities and a violation of international norms. While these may not be binding measures, it could force Iran to give an account for the charges on which Saeed is being held and could lead to an avenue by which his conviction or sentencing could be overturned,” Daniels said.

However, Daniels noted actions on the non-governmental level have had little impact on Iran.

“Many of these options have been pursued to no avail, but the injustice in this case demands that the efforts to see his release come should continue. While it appears that the huge amount of effort so far has fallen on deaf ears, it is important to remember that God, who ultimately moves on these decisions, does hear. So the appeals before that throne should continually be made by His people,” Daniels said.

Sekulow believes that reaching out to corporations that do business in Iran could become an avenue to build more interest in Abedini’s case.

“We’re looking at learning how we can positively work with the businesses that may be gaining from the sanctions being lifted. We’re not looking to do anything negatively but to see how we can positively let those people who they work with in Iran … see what can be done to get this American released,” Sekulow said.

Daniels agrees with Sekulow that the concept of corporations acting on Abedini’s interest has potential.

“Iran is slowly becoming increasingly integrated with the global economy. So if there were corporations willing to call for tangible improvements on rights issues (the release of Abedini) as part of their bargaining to pursue business ventures, that may be leveraged to help move the decision makers towards releasing Saeed,” Daniels said.

Mark Durie, an adjunct fellow at Australia’s Center for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths, is skeptical that corporate pressure can succeed, because Iran’s “business interests” have limited power.

“The potential problems with this suggestion are twofold:

  • one is that Iranian business people generally do not have that much leverage with the regime. Indeed for them to lobby on behalf of a Christian in prison could be personally dangerous for them.
  • Iran is not an open and free society in which it is open to people to lobby their government on such matters,” Durie said.

Pipes believes that, ultimately, the movement to free the American pastor will have to come from within Iran.

Sekulow said the American government and its people both need to be pressing Iran for Abedini’s release.

WND reported in December that Saeed Abedini’s wife, Nagmeh Abedini, testified before a House subcommittee hearing on human rights. The hearing was chaired by Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., who observed the injustice of the pastor’s jail time.

“Pastor Abedini is an American citizen, but he was told he could re-enter Iran to carry on his relief work. The Iranian government offered him safe entry. He accepted the Iranian government’s offer for safe passage, but the Iranian government hasn’t kept its promise,” Smith said.

Smith said “the fact that they moved him to the more dangerous prison shows that they knew he would be an important factor in the negotiations.”

“He’s an American citizen, and he remains in an absolute hell-hole in Iran. We can’t waste this opportunity.”

Nagmeh Abedini has announced she plans to attend the sixth annual Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy in February.

“This will give me a worldwide platform to speak out about religious freedom issues and Christian persecution,” she said.

Abedini first was held in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison and later was transferred to an even worse location – the 22,000-inmate Rajai Shahr, home to drug dealers, murderers and rapists. He was working in Iran under a government-approved building plan when he was arrested in 2012.
