Forcing children to sleep and undress next to kids of the opposite sex effectively puts up a ‘Christian kids need not apply’ sign on public recreation activities.

This spring I got an email from 4-H, a club I participated in as a child, effectively communicating that my Christian family need not apply to summer camps and other activities sponsored by the quasi-public organization. (County governments often sponsor 4-H activities.) This email was signed by a 4-H staffer who put pronouns in his signature and told me, “Youth are assigned cabins based on gender indicated on the 4-H camp application and registration,” suggesting children were roomed by gender identity rather than sex.

Naturally, I was concerned that my tween daughter and son might be roomed overnight with an emotionally disturbed camper or counselor if I enrolled them in this camp. Based on numerous reported stories, I know that if this did happen, the camp likely would not even tell me, so I’d only hear about it after the fact from my kids. When I emailed again to confirm I was understanding this correctly, the staffer refused to answer definitively whether campers could be placed in private facilities such as bedrooms and bathrooms with transgender individuals. That’s an unacceptable risk to children’s well-being, as well as a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Given how socially contagious LGBT identification is, it’s not just about transgender issue but also exposing children to sexual information and pressures far earlier than they are ready. Hand in hand with grouping children by gender identity is forcing conversations about what that means, which pushes children earlier and earlier to declare and investigate sexual behaviors. This is destabilizing to their identity, not “affirming” it.

Given 4-H national’s commitment to the toxic “diversity, equity, inclusion” ideology, the fact that my Christian kids now cannot equally access lots of their programming due to 4-H’s choice to sexualize their activities was no surprise. But I still wanted to see in writing that my red county in my red state was indeed giving tax breaks and other government privileges to an organization that might room children overnight with troubled people of the opposite sex against their parents’ will. The answer is yes. (Thanks, Republicans!)

Everywhere We Go, Someone Wants to Talk Dirty to My Kids on the Public Dime

It’s not just places kids get naked. It’s everywhere. I cannot take my children to the public library anymore, either, because the shelves are so full of pornographic and hostile books that it’s not a safe place for them. There, too, self-righteous LGBT activism has resulted in effectively banning my children from yet another public place and weaponizing my own tax dollars against my children’s safety. The shelves and displays in our library are full of books telling my children lies such as that “men can become women” and “some boys have girl brains” and “gender is a social construct.” I’m happy to have these conversations with my children when they are ready, but I know my six-year-old, and he is not ready. My eight-year-old is not ready, and neither are my 10- and 11-year-old, frankly. It’s grotesque and evil to put books at their eye level that deliberately aim to confuse them about something so deep and important. To do this is to usurp not only my parental wisdom and authority over my own children but to usurp my children’s right to an innocent, emotionally secure childhood.

It Won’t Happen, And When It Does, You Bigots Will Deserve It

These all prove that rapidly rewriting American laws to ignore sexual differences has effectively banned Christian families from equal participation in public facilities and activities. It’s not just Christian families, it’s any family that thinks it imprudent to lodge their sometimes-undressed daughters with an emotionally traumatized male at summer camp or to obtain swimming lessons at a public pool. This all descends from the massive bait and switch inherent to the LGBT policy agenda. We were told it was only about extending government sanction to what consenting adults do behind closed doors. We were told it was about allowing people to visit loved ones in hospice and inherit without legal difficulties. It wasn’t going to affect our families, remember?

Anyone who raised concerns about how calling sexual activities that cannot create a family “marriage” would affect children, faith, and families was smeared as a know-nothing bigot. Anyone who wanted to logically think through how legally equating men to women in the social keystone of marriage would have a domino effect on many other laws and social arrangements was also smeared as a hateful bigot, all the way up to highly intelligent and reasoned Supreme Court dissents. It’s the same toxic play we’ve seen work ever since: Anyone with a contrary opinion or even unanswered questions is not engaged, but simply smeared.

Men and Women Are Different, And That Matters

The fact is that equating homosexual relationships to marriage very often requires explaining adult sexual behaviors to tiny children. Erasing the differences between the sexes in marriage also leads irrevocably to erasing the differences between the sexes everywhere else, from bathrooms to pools to summer camps. Breaking down all sexual differences also results in discrimination against religious expressions that acknowledge men and women are different, and these differences are divinely ordered.

Thus upending the natural sexual order has resulted, not in the falsely promised “equality,” but in simply flipping which social system will rule. For what we were prevented from discussing or even seeing was the fact that these two regimes — treating the sexes as different and complementary versus seeing them as neutered and interchangeable — are mutually exclusive.

You cannot have both transgender swimmers and single-sex sports competition. You cannot have both the sexual profligacy pushed by the dominant LGBT activist class and protect children from sexualized childhoods and predatory social situations. You must have one or the other.

In the absence of clarity about this reality combined with effective use of power on reality’s behalf, abrasive, antisocial activists have fully taken over every public space. Any further sorties are merely tinkering around the edges of their all-encompassing kingdom.

Children Are No Longer a Protected Class, They’re Targets for Groomers

So instead of achieving equality, what we have really achieved is the subversion of children’s developmental needs to adult desires. Instead of equality, we have replaced legal preferences for the only sexual arrangement that produces the most stable future citizens — lifelong married biological parents — with legal preferences for sexual arrangements that harm children and send religious folk to the back of the public bus.

Therefore, all who believe in protecting children from marinating in sexual imagery and ideas everywhere they go are the new underclass in our political regime, and in many cases no Republican officials will even recognize our legitimate concerns, let alone fight for our daughters. That’s certainly the case here in Indiana, where Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb won’t sign bare-minimum legislation protecting girls’ sports and nobody is even talking about making our libraries, camps, and pools safe for families (even though that’s one of the few value-added policies a state like Indiana can offer its citizens).

Many of our major public and private institutions are making the public square completely hostile to a happy childhood and faith. Their “solution” to alleged bigotry was institutionalizing actual bigotry. “Our kind” aren’t wanted in “their” territory, you see. Maybe we would be allowed to have separate pools and summer camps funded by our own money, as long as the ACLU doesn’t sue them out of existence like they do Christian hospitals and foster care agencies.

What we weren’t told was that letting homosexuals out of the closet would require stuffing all the children and Christians inside.

Why Parents Should Assume Government Schools Will Sexually Abuse Their Children Until Proven Otherwise


REPORTED BY: ELLE REYNOLDS | FEBRUARY 22, 2022

shadow of a man and little girl

This article features explicit material unsuitable for all readers.

Coaxing 10-year-old girls away from their parents, promising a fun and safe environment, and then forcing them to sleep in the same room as grown men is the kind of behavior you’d expect from a sexual predator. It’s child endangerment at best and traumatizing abuse at worst. Yet that’s exactly what California’s Los Alamitos Unified School District forced little girls at a school-organized science camp to do for three nights in San Bernardino, according to outraged parents.

“No parent should feel the way I feel after knowing what could have happened to my daughter,” parent Suzy Johnson told local news. “If I was aware of it and I had initialed something saying this was going to be done at this outdoor science camp, I would have kept my children home.”

When confronted about the sleeping arrangements, the camp’s defense was, “Per California law, we place staff in cabins they identify with,” and the two men refer to themselves as “they/them.”

While the science camp incident is enraging, it’s far from the first or only indication that government schools likely harm children more than they benefit them. Before entrusting their kids to a behemoth that has repeatedly subjected children to abuse, parents should demand proof that schools are trustworthy — and assume they aren’t until proven otherwise.

Public schools’ insane obsession with the transgender agenda has physically endangered young girls before. Just look to Loudoun County, where a boy in a skirt raped a young lady in the women’s bathroom and the school board covered it up to keep the incident from sinking their transgender bathroom policy. What else don’t parents know about?

When these far-left pipe dreams about erasing sex don’t subject kids to physical abuse, they often inflict mental abuse. Even in a red state like Idaho, a report earlier this month found that “School administrators in Coeur d’Alene manipulated an 11-year-old girl into believing she was a boy and should undergo gender transition surgery” behind her parents’ backs. “The elementary school counselor had coached the young girl into believing she was transsexual and instructed her how to tell her parents about her new identity,” the Idaho Freedom Foundation reported.

In Virginia, a public school made kindergarteners sit and listen to a “transgender rights advocate” — a man dressed as a woman who goes by “Sarah” — read them a book about a transgender teen.

In Iowa, a school district used the “Black Lives Matter at School Guiding Principles” to teach kids as young as four years old to “free[] ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking,” “dismantle cis-gender privilege,” and “disrupt[] the Western prescribed nuclear family structure requirement.”

A school in a small Colorado town outside of Boulder showed elementary students a play about a transgender raven, accompanied by videos like He, She, and They – What is Genderand No More Gender Roles.” The videos include conversations with a gender-confused teddy bear that conclude gender roles are “mean, they are not fun and they are big problems.” One parent of a first-grader reported that, after showing one of the videos, his daughter’s teacher paired kids up to talk about their preferred pronouns.

Leaked audio from a conference of California’s largest teachers union revealed teachers being instructed on how to stalk middle schoolers and coax them into LGBT groups behind their parents’ backs. Speakers went so far as to tout their surveillance of students’ Google searches, internet activity, and hallway conversations in order to target sixth graders for personal invitations to LGBTQ clubs, while actively concealing these clubs’ membership rolls from participants’ parents,” Abigail Shrier reported.

School libraries like the one at Baird Middle School in Massachusetts feature sexually explicit books like “Sex Is A Funny Word” by Cory Silverberg. Not only does the book cover “subjects of transgender identity, intersex conditions, and masturbation,” its author is a sex shop owner who specifically targets kids.

A Rhode Island mom filed a police report over a local high school’s promotion of a gay porn book to minors in its library. The book “features discussion of gay sexual fantasies and is incredibly graphic, including scenes of gay men having sex and a scene of one man performing oral sex on another.”

These examples are only some of the incidents that have been brought to light — and they merely scratch the surface. Exposing vulnerable children to sexually explicit material and indoctrinating them to question their own identities, often against their parents’ wishes, is nothing less than mental abuse and exploitation.

A Harvard study in 2015 found youth who identified as transgender were at more than double risk for depression, anxiety, attempted suicide, and self-harm. Last year, Forbes reported that more than half — 52 percent “of all transgender and nonbinary young people in the U.S. seriously contemplated killing themselves in 2020.” Even aside from students’ exposure to the trans agenda, the toxic environment of public schools has tragically been linked to child suicides, which have escalated in recent years.

This isn’t to say every student in the public school system will be tempted to suicide, subject to pornography, placed in danger of sexual assault, or mentally abused. There are wonderful, truth-loving teachers out there who remain in the system to do as much good as they can for children they care deeply about. I know several. But the examples from all across the country, from known crazies in California to small-town red state school districts, should be enough to convince parents to be wary. Especially of what schools don’t tell them.

Nothing should be more paramount for parents than protecting their children. If a stranger offers to babysit your child, you don’t accept the offer with the rationale that your child might be fine. You expect anyone to whom you entrust your child to first prove he is worthy of stewarding your most sacred possession. Public schools are no different, and the repeated instances proving their abuses should drive your trust even further away. Maybe, like many Americans, you don’t feel you have what you think are feasible alternatives. Or maybe your local school district is sheltered from some of the most radical exploitation. But it behooves you to verify that first before betting your child on it.

Horrifying: The Special Outfit Epstein Wanted Teen Girl to Wear as She Serviced Him – Testimony


Reported By Isa Cox | December 6, 2021

Read more at https://www.westernjournal.com/horrifying-special-outfit-epstein-wanted-teen-girl-wear-serviced-testimony/

Jeffrey Epstein will no doubt go down as one of history’s most notorious sex criminals, preying on vulnerable young women. However, while up until this point a picture has been painted of a man who used and abused teenage girls, testimony provided during the trial of his longtime confidant and accused accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, underscores that twisted financier may have been even more infatuated with children than we realized.

Brace yourself — this is highly disturbing, even for an Epstein story.

A woman using the pseudonym “Kate” took the stand on Monday morning, who, according to Reuters, is the second of four women listed in the indictment against Maxwell. Because she was 17 at the time of her reported sexual encounters with Epstein, above the relevant age of consent, the jury was instructed to consider that she had not engaged in “illegal sex acts” with the now-deceased pervert.

While the Times reported that was some disagreement between prosecutors and Maxwell’s attorneys over whether “Kate” could be considered a victim when she says she was lured into Epstein and Maxwell’s clutches, her story nonetheless paints a picture of a man who decidedly enjoyed at least the idea of sexual acts with children.

“It follows that Ms. Maxwell’s role in grooming Kate to engage in sex acts with Mr. Epstein was a part of, and therefore constitutes evidence of, the conspiracy charges against Ms. Maxwell,” prosecutors have written in court documents, according to The New York Times, and have noted that Kate was still a minor when she was allegedly groomed by Maxwell and Epstein.

Whatever the legal technicalities, it’s clear that “Kate,” who said she was initially “exhilarated” by Maxwell’s friendship when she was promised help with her aspiring music career, was clearly taken advantage of and fetishized for her youth.

The New York Post reported Monday morning that Kate testified she was instructed by Maxwell to don a schoolgirl outfit to serve Epstein at his Palm Beach mansion and was once even told she was “such a good girl” after the twisted pedophile appeared to be pleased with her, um, “services.”

Kate said that she met Epstein and Maxwell in Paris in the early 1990s and was instructed to provide sexual massages to Epstein first in Maxwell’s London mansion before later engaging in sexual acts with him in his own notorious Florida property as well. Maxwell, who is standing trial for sex trafficking and sexual abuse, has long been accused of recruiting and grooming young women and girls for Epstein to abuse and even, at times, abusing them herself.

In London, Kate was led to a massage room by Maxwell in the socialite’s London home, where the accused madame told her to “have a good time” as she opened to the door to reveal a nude Epstein, ready for his (ugh) service.

When the encounter concluded, Maxwell told Kate that she was “such a good girl” and that she was “so happy you were able to come.” Kate noted that Maxwell “sounded really pleased.”

In Palm Beach, Kate arrived to visit the notorious power couple to find a schoolgirl outfit laid out for her on a bed, complete with pleated skirt, white socks, and a shirt. Maxwell told her she thought it would be “fun” for Kate to bring Epstein his tea in the outfit. Given what’s well known about the relationship between Epstein and Maxwell — that she played the role of Epstein’s procurer for more than a decade, it’s a fair conclusion that Maxwell didn’t just think the school uniform would be “fun” on her own. She knew it’s what Epstein wanted.

According to the Post, Kate testified that she was then given a tray to bring Epstein his tea, where he then engaged in sex acts with her by the pool.

Last week, an accuser identified as “Jane” testified that Maxwell and Epstein had also appealed to her creative aspirations, playing the chums and even paying for music lessons before they began to sexually abuse her.

There is no doubt that Epstein has consistently been accused of preying on young, vulnerable, and easily influenced women. And while Kate’s disturbing testimony is in line with this theme, it makes it clear that he wasn’t simply interested in young, underage women. He was seemingly interested in girls, and according to her account, enjoyed the impression that he was being waited on. Epstein’s alleged victims have often been referred to as his “sex slaves.”

I don’t think it’s ever been clearer that that’s exactly what they were.

Soros Sex Nightmare: Right-Hand Man Accused of Rape & Claiming to Rape Own Daughter


Reported by C. Douglas Golden | August 3, 2021

Read more at https://www.westernjournal.com/soros-sex-nightmare-right-hand-man-accused-rape-claiming-rape-daughter/

Could Howard Rubin end up tainting George Soros like Jeffrey Epstein tainted so many other billionaires?

Rubin is a top money manager who was a “right-hand man” for the leftist billionaire, according to the New York Post. He worked at the Soros Fund from 2008 to 2015, having come out of retirement to take the job, according to the U.K. Daily Mail. Now, he’s the subject of a court case — accused by multiple women of engaging in sadistic sex-for-hire practices that went way beyond what they had consented to.

And while he was known to be volatile professionally, it’s not the kind of headline Rubin’s career would suggest.

During 30 years on Wall Street, Rubin established a solid record working at other high-end investment firms. He was immortalized in “Liar’s Poker,” the debut book by Michael Lewis of “Moneyball” and “The Big Short” fame. In it, Rubin described how “the trading floor at Salomon Brothers felt like a Las Vegas casino. You made your bets, handled risk, in the midst of a thousand distractions.” Even then, some viewed him as an out-of-control Wall Street type.

“I saw him throw a chair on the trading floor,” a former co-worker said, according to the Post. “He said, ‘F***. I just lost $50 million!’ and threw a chair at his computer. Then he came back and threw it a second time, even harder. That sums up Howie: High strung, aggressive, does not hold back his feelings. He was a trader whose ego was tied up in being the biggest swinging d*** on Wall Street.”

Others saw a man who was perfectly average for someone in his position.

“I thought he was a nice guy,” one of his co-workers at Soros Fund Management told the Post. “He was a nebbishy Jewish guy and totally normal. I was surprised to hear about him having that apartment.”

“That apartment” refers to a hidden real-estate acquisition of Rubin’s: A “luxurious midtown Manhattan penthouse,” the Post reports, that functioned as a BDSM sex “dungeon” in which Rubin is accused of sexually assaulting and abusing numerous women, among them Playboy playmates.

In November, Rubin’s purported proclivities will be on full display as six of his seven alleged victims will have their day in court, suing the 66-year-old Rubin for $18 million, according to the Post. The women were sex workers — but the abuse they endured, they said, wasn’t what they were hired for.

“[Rubin] is alleged to have paid his partners as much as $5,000 for each BDSM session. But, the women claim, they did not agree to the degree of abuse and degradation Rubin inflicted,” the Post reported Saturday.

“One of the plaintiffs claims that, while she was bound and vulnerable in Rubin’s lair, he told her ‘I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter’ and then, according to the complaint, forced sex on her against her will. (Rubin has three children with his estranged wife, including at least one daughter.)”

It’s worth noting, however, there are no accusations he sexually abused his daughter — merely that he told a woman that during a forced sex act.

The women say that after they were hired, they “wound up in Rubin’s dungeon, with its red walls and white carpet. Sex toys were alphabetized and an X-shaped ‘St. Andrews cross’ — a device on which submissives are restrained, spread-eagle, at the wrists, ankles and waist — took pride of place.”

Two of the women — Playboy international playmates Mia Lytell and Amy Moore — said they thought Rubin intended to engage in “some mild fetish games and perhaps take photos, neither expected to be restrained in this manner [bound with rope and tape and gagged] or to be actually beaten.”

The lawsuit states that when one of the women “screamed or protested [during a session], Rubin would simply become more violent.” It also accuses Rubin of “beat[ing a woman’s] breasts so badly that her right implant flipped.” The injury was so serious, court documents said, that the woman’s “plastic surgeon was not even willing to operate on her breasts.”

“In short, they are each alleging that they were brought to New York and taken advantage of,” said John Balestriere, who represents the women. “Allegations come down to [the women] saying they were physically and sexually abused.”

Rubin’s defense comes down to informed consent — indicating that, yes, he had engaged in some of the lowest forms of degeneracy imaginable, but it was done with the women’s consent.

A motion for summary judgment filed by Rubin attorney Edward McDonald states that the women “signed strict non-disclosure agreements, with penalties of at least $500,000 if broken, and acknowledgment that violent sex, with a risk of injury, is what they were consenting to and being paid for,” the Post reported.

“Each of the women, all adults, had explicit knowledge of the highly paid sexual arrangements for which they willingly traveled,”  McDonald told the Post in a statement.

“Multiple women confirmed consent through text messages before and after their encounters, returned for multiple encounters, arranged for their closest friends to engage in the same sexual activity and repeatedly solicited Mr. Rubin long after their final encounters.”

Balestriere argued the women had little opportunity to review the non-disclosure agreements they signed, nor did they understand the implications therein.

“They did not have lawyers on call,” he said, adding that Rubin’s “encounters” went far beyond consensual activity and into the realm of sexual violence.

“None of these women came to New York knowing that they would be physically and sexually abused. They did not consent to what did end up happening. The key factor is that Mr. Rubin said these individuals consented to the physical and sexual violence perpetrated against them. Our six clients say they did not consent.”

“Some of our clients say they were in no position to speak or leave,” he added.

There are a whole litany of stomach-churning details in the article that are best left unsaid. At present, Rubin is no longer renting the penthouse, although some of the sexual devices have been put into storage by Rubin “so he doesn’t get accused of disposing of evidence,” a source told the Post.

Even though the scandal has been slowly unfolding for years, Rubin’s wife of 36 years — Mary Henry, another Wall Street fixture — just filed for divorce on July 7, according to the Post.

Beyond the sordid nature of the case, the first question involves how true the accusations are and what evidence can be produced. If things begin looking grim on that front, attention then turns to what everyone around Rubin knew and when they knew it.

Lytell and Moore, along with a third woman, first came forward with allegations of assault, battery and human trafficking in 2017, according to the Post. This was two years after Rubin quit working for George Soros, but it’s a good chance his proclivities were established long before that. And that could mean at least a hint of trouble for the infamous financier of liberal causes.

While there are plenty of Wall Street figures and sundry financiers that have come into Rubin’s orbit, most don’t pretend to be moral exemplars and sociopolitical supermen the way Soros does. And, while the alleged sexual assaults and extreme fetish behavior Rubin engaged in wasn’t publicly known before 2017, others said the financier had a history of ethical lapses. One former executive at Merrill Lynch Mortgage Capital Markets, where Rubin worked in the 1980s, noted Rubin was fired after he made an unauthorized trade that cost the firm hundreds of millions of dollars. Without providing details, the unnamed executive said this was a part of a pattern of behavior on Rubin’s part.

“[The dungeon] was just Howie being a lowlife — again,” he said, although he added, “I never knew about the sexual deviations.”

Nevertheless, after the news broke, “people were calling me and saying he’s a sleaze … but Howie has no morals. While at Merrill Lynch, he was morally bankrupt.”

It’ll be interesting to find out who was willing to tolerate that kind of degenerate bankruptcy, and whether Howard Rubin ends up tainting reputations the way Jeffrey Epstein did.

Facebook Loses Teen Sex Trafficking Case, Legal Defeat Puts Social Media Platforms in Crosshairs


Reported by Jack Davis | June 26, 2021

The Texas Supreme Court has ruled against Facebook as the social media giant tries to use a controversial federal law to dodge liability for its platform being used by human traffickers to recruit victims. The ruling allows three survivors of human trafficking who want to sue Facebook to move forward with their cases, according to Forbes. Facebook had argued it was not responsible for what its users say under Section 230 of the federal Communications Decency Act.

Section 230 has become a controversial piece of law, with critics saying it gives social media companies too much power. Forbes reported that in 2018, Congress carved out exceptions to Section 230 so that lawsuits could be brought against companies that violate human trafficking laws. In his opinion, Justice Jimmy Blacklock noted those limits.

“We do not understand section 230 to ‘create a lawless no-man’s-land on the Internet’ in which states are powerless to impose liability on websites that knowingly or intentionally participate in the evil of online human trafficking,” he wrote.

“Holding internet platforms accountable for the words or actions of their users is one thing. … Holding internet platforms accountable for their own misdeeds is quite another thing. This is particularly the case for human trafficking.”

“Section 230, as amended, does not withdraw from the states the authority to protect their citizens from internet companies whose own actions — as opposed to those of their users — amount to knowing or intentional participation in human trafficking,” the ruling said.

The case involved three women who, according to the ruling, “allege they were victims of sex trafficking who became entangled with their abusers through Facebook.” One was 15 years old when she was befriended by a Facebook user who told her he would help her pursue a modeling career.

“Shortly after meeting him, Plaintiff was photographed and her pictures posted to the website Backpage (which has since been shut down due to its role in human trafficking), advertising her for prostitution. As a result, Plaintiff was ‘raped, beaten, and forced into further sex trafficking,’” the ruling said.

Texas Authorities Arrest Another Illegal, This Time Accused of Sex Assault on 11-Year-Old


Reported By Kara Pendleton | January 16, 2019 at 10:29am

It seems that when it is politically expedient, liberals claim to deeply care about women and children. But it also seems that on a regular basis, their actions say otherwise.

Yet another example of this has hit the news. It began with the sexual assault of an 11-year-old child in Conroe, Texas, according to authorities.

KHOU reported that the 30-year-old man accused of the crime was arrested and is being held due to not only the alleged crime, but also his legal status.

Details of the alleged sexual assault were not available, but the immigration history of the suspect, Jose Manuel Tiscareno Hernandez, definitely was. An illegal alien living in the United States, he has already been deported to Mexico a number of times.

In fact, if authorities hadn’t caught Hernandez when they did, he had planned on fleeing back to Mexico, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

A media advisory issued by the sheriff’s office stated that two search warrants had been issued as part of the investigation. The first was to search his home. He was not at home at the time, but that is when they got the information about his plan to flee across the border.

The second warrant was issued for authorities to search a different residence to collect evidence.

Hernandez was finally arrested on Saturday, KHOU reported.

The various authorities involved in the investigation included the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit and SWAT, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the FBI. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Marshals Service also played a role in his capture, according to the news release.

Not every illegal alien commits other crimes once over the border. But in regard to border security and a wall, as the Democrats so often say, “if even one life can be saved, it’s worth it.” So, how many lives, particularly those of the women and children they claim to love and advocate for, must be damaged or lost before they follow up on their claims? If even one can be saved, isn’t it worth it by their own logic?

These stories of illegal aliens committing other crimes once here are being reported far too often. It’s almost daily that we read or hear about yet another illegal alien being arrested for other, usually violent, crimes.

Do you think the Democrats need to get to work and fund the wall?

It needs to stop. And Democrats need to do more than talk. It is time to fund the wall and stop the insanity. It is time to actually protect the men, women and children of America. Isn’t that part of their job description? They don’t seem to think so.

Instead of working on a deal with President Donald Trump, Democrats took a holiday vacation. Then, barely after getting back from that, a number of them were off to Puerto Rico to party with lobbyists and watch the musical hit “Hamilton.” That’s how much they care about innocent women and children. That’s how much they care about doing the job Americans elected and pay them to do.

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

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.
