Trump’s Mythical Crackdown on Sex Trafficking…

01) Trump’s Mythical Crackdown on Sex Trafficking

“At Townhall.com, sex-crime victims’ advocate and author Liz Crokin accuses the mainstream media of “ignoring Trump’s sex trafficking busts.” In Crokin’s reality, “authorities have arrested an unprecedented number of sexual predators involved in child sex trafficking rings in the United States” since Donald Trump took office on January 20. “There have been a staggering 1,500-plus arrests in one short month; compare that to less than 400 sex trafficking-related arrests in 2014 according to the FBI,” Crokin writes.

This is, as Trump would put it, “fake news.” Every part of it. For starters, the 2014 data she links to is far from a complete account of U.S. sex-trafficking arrests that year. It reflects incomplete state-level arrest numbers from just 26 U.S. states, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. It does not include all state sex-trafficking arrests, by far, nor does it include any sex trafficking arrests by federal agencies such as the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which make thousands of sex trafficking arrests annually (though far fewer trafficking indictments and convictions).

The idea that there have been “an unprecedented number” of sex traffickers arrested since Trump took office has similarly little basis in reality, and there’s zero truth to the claim of law-enforcement busting up child sex-trafficking rings.”

01) The True, Peaceful Face Of Islam

“There are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world, and Islam is the world’s fastest-growing religion. If the evil carnage we witnessed on Sept. 11 were typical of the faith, and Islam truly inspired and justified such violence, its growth and the increasing presence of Muslims in both Europe and the U.S. would be a terrifying prospect. Fortunately, this is not the case.”

Interesting article…and some perspective I find new, to me….Not most…just a bit.

No punishment for man who raped girl, 12…


Date: March 18, 2017

01) No punishment for man who raped girl, 12

“A man who admitted raping a 12-year-old girl has walked free from court.

Daniel Cieslak, 21, had believed the girl – who he met in a taxi queue in Edinburgh in July 2015 – was 16. He burst into tears when police later revealed her true age.

The judge, Lady Scott, said she was taking the “wholly exceptional decision” not to sentence Cieslak.

Instead, she gave the first offender an absolute discharge at the High Court in Glasgow.

She said: “I do not consider there is any need for, or public interest in, punishment. To do so would in my view be disproportionate given the nature of the criminal culpability here.”

Student Cieslak, who was 19 at the time of the offence, had earlier pleaded guilty to the rape charge.”

I wont be offering a lot of commentary here, because I’m badly sick, aching and cranky…for about the bazillionth time, in the last twelve months…So, I’m not really up to saying much.

I think this is the first time I’ve ever learned of anybody in this situation, being legally let off.

When I consider such laws to be invalid in their own right…I’m not really sure how I feel about these anomalies…

It’s kind of a “feel good” outcome, for the guy who didn’t know what he’d gotten into…but really…I’m too under the weather, to contemplate the wider ramifications.

I guess…it’s good that the legal system took half a step away, from it’s Neanderthal absolutism.

…That’s something to consider.

01) Karen Straughan – Toxic Masculinity & TOXIC FEMININITY


“Men’s Rights Sensation, Karen Straughan, compares the concept of Toxic Masculinity to the new and novel (and yet age-old, even Biblical) concept of Toxic Femininity. In this presentation, she explores the evolutionary psychology at play (both in men and women who engage in heavily gendered forms of socially toxic behaviours), and the cultural norms that either encourage or place constraints on these tendencies.”

01) Born of Hope – Full Movie

“Uploaded on Dec 11, 2009

Born of Hope is an independent feature film inspired by the Lord of the Rings and produced by Actors at Work Productions in the UK.

A scattered people, the descendants of storied sea kings of the ancient West, struggle to survive in a lonely wilderness as a dark force relentlessly bends its will toward their destruction. Yet amidst these valiant, desperate people, hope remains. A royal house endures unbroken from father to son.

This 70 minute original drama is set in the time before the War of the Ring and tells the story of the Dúnedain, the Rangers of the North, before the return of the King. Inspired by only a couple of paragraphs written by Tolkien in the appendices of the Lord of the Rings we follow Arathorn and Gilraen, the parents of Aragorn, from their first meeting through a turbulent time in their people’s history.”

Considering that these were fan made movies…It’s really quite impressive what they did here. It would be nice to see them make more of these.
