“Was the death of Anthony Avalos, a Lancaster, California ten year old boy who came out as gay, the result of neglect and oversight of CPS authorities after years of complaints?

It has since been revealed that the Department of Children and Family Services received at least 16 calls over the years alleging that Heather and Leiva were abusing the children, aged 11 months to 12 years old. School administrators and family members, as well as a teacher and a counselor, had all called in to voice their concerns.

They reported that the children were being sexually abused, beaten and bruised, forced to fight one another, and forced to eat from the trash, according to Department of Children and Family Services Director Bobby Cagle. The concerned callers also reported that the children were being denied food and water, were forced to crouch for hours, and were even dangled upside down from the home’s staircase.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman also revealed that Child Protective Services had come to the house at least once for child abuse allegations involving one of Anthony’s siblings. Maria reported Heather and Leiva to the county and Anthony’s school three years ago but said nothing was done to remove the children from the home.”

…If I recall correctly…this is the exact same system, which forcibly removed Anthony from the home of his loving grandparents [who raised him, and wanted to keep him]…and dumped him into that hell…all because his mother had legal custody rights, according to the state.

These “child protection” organizations are very notorious, for a number of reasons…ranging from overzealous crusaders, to inept bums working at them…to overwhelming workloads, from too many cases for their people to handle…

…One of the glaring issues…is all the mind-blowing waste…of time, energy, money and resources…which goes into tormenting and devastating intergenerational relationships [plus the kids who are being “too naughty”, and doing entirely natural things with each other], at the hands of these organizations, and their people…

…when we’ve simultaneously got all these cases like Anthony’s…where there is objective abuse…where the abuse is both extreme, and life threatening…But the people responsible for stopping this sort of thing are…inept?…apathetic?…Whatever efforts they have put forward…they were useless, in stopping this boy’s senseless death.

Was it worth it?…

…Was this tradeoff worth it?…

…Was Anthony Avalos’ unspeakable murder offset, by all the naughty perverts corralled and fed into the system?…

…Do we all feel it was time, resources, energy, lives and deaths and tortures “well spent”…that the people of these agencies likely had to spend, interfering in intergenerational relationships, where they were neither wanted nor needed?…

Maybe…it’s time to start focusing on genuine cases of abuse?…

…I strongly believe, Anthony would say it is…

…Maybe, Anthony Avalos would be alive today…if it weren’t for all the moral outrage cases, which these agencies are tasked to eradicate?

Just a thought, there.

…I tend to think that a ten year old’s ability to continue living healthy and untortured, is universally more important, than some moral supremacists fits of outrage, which demand appeasement.

The system and culture in the U.S. tortured and murdered this boy, every bit as much as the primary people behind the violence.

If you support the way things currently are…I’m not sure how you can live with yourself…

…It’s your position, which traded away the life and safety of Anthony Avalos…as if it were some sort of bargaining chip.

Paramotors: Icarus Trophy [2017]…


….

Date: August 31, 2018

01) I Hit A Tree And Broke My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day One


I Hit A Tree And Broke My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day One:


Day one of the Icarus Trophy started out rough. After some poor decision making, I took a downwind landing into a spot way too tight for my glider, hooked a tree, and fell breaking three of my spars. Luckily, it was fixable with some super glue and duct tape. Shortly after, I took a face plant in a cow pasture but it was smooth sailing after. I grabbed dinner with a local Twin Bridges family and had a perfect heated pilot lounge to sleep in. Tune in for the remaining four days of my Icarus Trophy adventure!”

325 Miles In One Day On My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day Two:

“On the second day of the Icarus Trophy, near perfect weather and a tailwind up high allowed me to cover an insane amount of distance. On the first two legs, hypoxia was definitely a concern. By my third flight of the day, the air became very turbulent and thermally which proved to be my most difficult flight yet. Finally, I took a gamble and flew away from the recommended course to Jackpot, Nevada for the night.”

Crossing The Salt Flats On My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day Three:

“The third day of the Icarus Trophy was tough. I woke up feeling drained and sore but was presented with the sketchiest launch of the entire race. After leaving Jackpot, I was surprised with turbulent wind as I arrived in Wendover. The following flight was the most challenging of the entire race. The turbulence got so bad toward the end that I decided to land safely at a rest area. The final flight was a extremely beautiful but a race against the sun set. Luckily, Nephi airport had a courtesy car and I was rewarded with a nice meal at Wendy’s.”

Flying Into A Thunderstorm – Icarus Trophy Day Four:

“Day four was full of tough decisions. Just after crossing an incredible 11,000ft mountain range, I received a message warning the pilots about a 30 mile wide system with 42,000ft tops around the Monument Valley and Lake Powell area. The system was exactly in the direction I was headed and moving even closer throughout the day. Risky decision after risky decision led me all the way to Monticello Airport, which turned out to be the nicest FBO I had visited. Hot coffee, a courtesy car, and a big fluffy couch made a day of tough flying well worth it.”

I WON THE ICARUS TROPHY – Icarus Trophy Day Five:

“Before I started this race, I decided that I wanted to finish safely and to the best of my ability. I wasn’t too worried about beating the competitors and if I won, it would just be a bonus. This turned out to be the greatest adventure of my life. Dodging clouds by Missoula, eating meatloaf with a family in twin bridges, cruising at 11,000ft for over an hour, fueling up in ‘the middle of no where’, getting the worst sunburn of my life, crossing the salt flats, sleeping on a bathroom floor in Nephi, flying beside giant rock walls near Moab, fueling up among private jets in Page, and finally crossing the finish line at full speed downwind in Mesquite. It was truly an adventure I will remember for the rest of my life.”


Now…

…I’m not insane…[honest!…I’m not!]…So, I’m never going to actually do this…

…But, you have no idea how badly I want to.

Fox Host Shrugs Off 40% Of Americans Struggling To Meet Basic Needs…

01) Fox Host Shrugs Off 40% Of Americans Struggling To Meet Basic Needs


“BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And just to show there is work to be done, there’s another study out, I know it caught your attention too, that 40 percent of American families struggle to meet at least one basic need like food, clothing, skipping a meal. That bothers me. STUART VARNEY (FOX BUSINESS HOST): And medical. OK. Well, consider this: 40 percent of Americans say that they struggled to meet one basic need at least once in the past year. Struggled. They talk about food insecurity. If you struggle to put one meal on the table, then you are part of the 40 percent. What’s the word “struggle” really mean? We’ve all had a little tightness in the wallet every now and again, what does “struggle” actually mean? And another thing that people that had a hard time meeting is their medical bills. Do you want to blame Obamacare for that? We were supposed to have lower medical costs but we got higher medical costs…

Caught with Transgender Porn: Is Alex Jones Gay?…


….

Date: August 30, 2018

01) Alex Jones Is Obsessed With Transgender Porn


“Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, whose transphobic rants have seen his broadcasts removed from YouTube, unwittingly revealed transgender pornography on his phone, video appears to show.

The radio show host behind the controversial InfoWars brand was filming a segment promoting “personal wellness” products on an affiliate site when he clicked away from the page on his mobile phone.

For a split second the camera, still trained on his screen, revealed an array of open tabs including a page titled: “Naughty tbabe Marissa Mi…”

“Tbabe” is a term used to refer to transgender pornography stars and the clip is believed to show Marissa Minx, described as “Australia’s #1 Trans Companion/XXXAdult Model”.

The actor later tweeted her support, writing that it was “fantastic he is watching scenes”.

But she also retweeted several posts criticizing Mr Jones for his “hypocritical” and “blatantly anti-trans views”.”

I’m not shocked, in the least.

‘I Was Blinded By The Controversy’: Sally Mann Publishes An Excerpt From Her Forthcoming Memoir [2015]…

01) ‘I Was Blinded By The Controversy’: Sally Mann Publishes An Excerpt From Her Forthcoming Memoir

“-Mann says that informed consent was crucial to the creation of this collection. In Woodward’s article, Mann actually explained that she initially intended to wait to publish the photos until her children had grown and could fully understand the implication of the photos. (Here is perhaps where her judgment faltered.) Her children disagreed with this decision; they encouraged her to publish the photos immediately, so she did.

She avers,

“…the kids were visually sophisticated, involved in setting the scene, in producing the desired effects for the images and in editing them. When I was putting together ‘Immediate Family,’ I gave each child the pictures of themselves and asked them to remove those they didn’t want published.”

-For advice, Mann called the F.B.I.’s Kenneth Lanning, a former member of the behavioral science unit. His professional opinion:

“He said what I already knew: that some people would be aroused by these pictures. And then he said: ‘But they get aroused by shoes, too. I don’t think there is anything you can take a picture of that doesn’t arouse somebody.’”

This is worth reading…and I suspect, Sally’s memoir is worth owning a copy of.

“Since his election, Pope Francis has done everything within his power to soften and subvert the church’s teaching concerning human sexuality. He also packed the College of Cardinals with the Lavender Mafia.”

Kids on the Sex Offender Registry…

01) Kids on the Sex Offender Registry

“The headlines today are full of stories of righteous indignation over immigrant children being separated from their families. While that dilemma is certainly newsworthy, the American public seems largely unaware of the fact that tens of thousands of our own children are being taken from their families each year and tossed into a rapacious legal system that chews them up and spits them out as sex offenders. As hard as it may be to believe, The Department of Justice estimates that there are at least 89,000 children on the sex offender registry, and it should come as no surprise to anyone that it’s destroying their lives.”


Child Pornography May Make A Comeback After Court Ruling Guts Regulations Protecting Minors…

“Child Pornography May Make A Comeback After Court Ruling Guts Regulations Protecting Minors

The case revolves around U.S. Code Title 18 Section 2257, which requires porn producers to keep stringent records on the ages of performers and allows federal agents to inspect them at any time.

Judge Michael Baylson of the U.S. 3rd Circuit of Appeals ruled that most of 2257’s record keeping requirements were unconstitutional on First and Fourth Amendment grounds. The ruling allows primary producers to fulfill age verification obligations by using a form developed by the Free Speech Coalition, the industry association that brought the lawsuit against 2257.

… the decision completely exempts major distributors (termed secondary producers), from any record-keeping requirements.”

“Have your papers ready at all times”…eh?…

…Sounds so, so familiar…

It’s always shocking, wherever a court actually upholds the U.S. Constitution…let alone, human rights…wherever the boogieman of “child pornography” is involved.

The courts, public intellect and other “social safeguards” have almost unanimously failed…habitually…for the last four decades…

Do note, their focus on “the young looking”…and how this has been about obstructing depictions of “the young looking”…by adding a totally absurd burden and consequence, to the practice of hosting it.

If they cannot legally ban it outright…they strangle it to death, through other methods.

In a weird way…I suppose this may have been vetting legally questionable content, and acting as a buffer for those times when you unintentionally stumble across “twink porn” [or the like], where the age of the participants is absolutely vague…

…and it’s strange to have to acknowledge that…

…It’s like thanking your captors, for withholding a beating for the day…

Of course…given a court system with integrity…this sort of thing unquestionably must be brought down…It’s inevitable…It has no legal leg to stand on…just public sentiment…

The maddening, enraging tragedy in this type of nonsense…is the amount of time, funds and energy it takes…to kill these statutory monstrosities, which clearly never should have been enacted in the first place…

…”Our” government passes this type of thing…and it takes two decades to get anything accomplished, in correcting the mess they’ve made…

All they need to do…is just keep passing these stupid laws, every so many years…and these special interests still get their way, for a decade or longer…and the social devastation ensues at their hands, even when the laws are ultimately struck down…

This is one of the reasons, why we need a fundamental change in culture…With it, will come a fundamental change in government…and we can jettison these malcontents from all public offices.

These terroristic aggressors have no business being there.
