Okay, so the "far right" is paranoid, eh?

guardian sex trafficking.jpg

Who's afraid of a movie about trafficking children?

Ace was not the only person who noticed how the Guardian quickly switched from being QAnon-adjascent in its concern about child trafficking to joining the media pile-on connecting Sound of Freedom with QAnon. But they themselves reported on child trafficking in Colombia, the main storyline of the movie!

I have seen some attacks on the movie from both right and left because the story in the movie is not "totally true". Well, of course. It is a Hollywood movie. This is what Tim Ballard's organization says is true and what isn't in the movie plot. Based on a true story (except for the parts that aren't.

The movie remains under attack, so it's handy to know that a summary of how much is "Hollywood" is available.

The movie seems to be having an impact in California, of all places:

California Democrats resisted a child trafficking bill - - until they couldn't

It was a perfunctory committee hearing on a day full of them in the Legislature. The measure in question on Tuesday wasn't novel, just another in a long list of attempts to reclassify a misdemeanor as a felony. Like most attempts before it, it met a quiet and undignified end.

The bill was new, but what it sought to do was not. Lawmakers from both parties had made numerous previous attempts to reclassify human trafficking of a minor for purposes of a commercial sex act as a "serious felony," which would be treated as a strike under California's Three Strikes law.

In 2007, twice in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2017 and three times in 2021, legislators tried and failed to reclassify child sex trafficking. But then something strange happened after the latest effort went down.

A backlash swiftly took shape on social media. Comments ranged from "What on earth were these Democrats thinking?" to accusations that they were siding with pedophiles -- and at least one Democratic member of the Assembly Public Safety Committee that quashed the bill reported receiving death threats.

Soon the bill, which had already passed the Senate unanimously, began collecting new, high-profile allies. Gov. Gavin Newsom at a press conference expressed dismay at its failure, telling reporters that he'd reach out to the bill's Republican author, Sen. Shannon Grove of Bakersfield. Newly seated Assembly Speaker Robert Rivas, a Salinas Democrat, also said he was "very much engaged" in trying to move the bill forward.

Heh.

What about those outlandish QAnon conspiracy theories about children being sacrificed in blood rituals? The media is attacking the star of the movie for talking about these. Okay, so attack the BBC, too.

The Guardian joined in, back in 2005:

An unknown number of children are being trafficked from Africa and then used in ritualistic abuse and sacrifice offerings in the UK, according to a leaked report from the Metropolitan police.

The confidential report, leaked to the BBC, means police have discovered what has been known for years, African community activists say.

Many trafficked children suffer abuse at the hands of their relatives and guardians, such as the 10-year-old girl known only as Child B, whose aunt and two other adults were convicted this month for torturing her after the girl was branded a witch by church leaders.

Others, such as Victoria Climbie and the unidentified boy "Adam", whose torso was found floating in the Thames, end up dead.

The BBC reported that the latest investigation by the Met into child trafficking from Africa alleges that these children are being beaten and murdered because they are believed to be possessed by evil spirits. Other alleged uses for the children include domestic slaves and for sexual purposes, including being forced to have sex with men with HIV who believe that sex with a virgin will cure their disease.

Sections from the study included: "People who are desperate will seek out witchcraft experts to cast spells for them. Members of the workshop stated that for a spell to be powerful it required a sacrifice involving a male child unblemished by circumcision.

I'm sure that little detail came from QAnon. Don't you think?

The NEA and Gavin Newsom are coming for your kids

I'm sorry about including this clip. You may need to turn the sound down. If you click over to Twitter, you may find some interesting commentary in the thread.

Can you discern a point in her stemwinder? There are subtitles in case you can't understand the yelling.

Here's one thing that it's about:

The NEA's Recommended Summer Reading is All About Social Justice - - The classics are out, "Gender Queer" is in.

When I was a college student - a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away - the so-called Western canon still carried cultural and intellectual weight among educators. Humanities departments still seemed populated mostly by professors who believed our civilization was a triumph worth preserving. Higher education was certainly in the process of being subverted by Marxist radicals back then, but it hadn't yet completely succumbed to the deconstructive madness reflected in Jesse Jackson's 1987 rallying cry at Stanford University, "Hey ho, hey ho, Western civ has got to go!"

Those halcyon days of my youthful naivete about academia's subversion of the West are long gone. The ranks of today's educators are overwhelmingly dominated by race-and-gender ideologues who are passionate not about passing down to the next generation the West's glorious legacy of "the best that has been thought and said," but about churning out a generation of students completely disconnected from that legacy and indoctrinated into social justice activism. (And not just in university classrooms; the rot has filtered all the way down now to pre-kindergarten.)

Toward that end, educators aren't spending their summer vacation refamiliarizing themselves with the ideas of Isaac Newton or the poetry of Chaucer or the dramatic storytelling of the ancient Greeks. Instead, they're wading in the shallows of contemporary pop culture, soaking up the distorted worldview of critical theory, and immersing themselves in radical pedagogy that will not open young minds but shut them tight.

She's scary. They're not your babies ma'am. They're ours, and just so you know? "Education professionals" don't have special rights. Y'all just don't. You are HIRED Speech.

But as we are on the topic of never bending and being committed to a mission, we moms, including @Moms4Liberty, will not bend the knee to the NEA.

Wait! Those are the Moms on the SPLC's hate map! Should the NEA be on the SPLC's hate map instead?

Meanwhile in California: Gov. Gavin Newsom says state will provide social studies textbooks to Temecula if school board won't

The Temecula district could be fined about $1.5 million under Jackson's bill, AB 1078, Izzy Gardon, a spokesperson for the governor, said via email.

In an emailed statement, school board President Joseph Komrosky said it is "unfortunate that Governor Newsom and others have seized upon an action by the Temecula Valley Unified School expressly authorized by the California Legislature and mischaracterized not only what has occurred, but why."

It's misleading, Komrosky said, to say the board banned a textbook.

Newsom "conveniently ignored" the board's concerns about how the social studies curriculum was crafted, including whether the community had enough input and whether the curriculum "adequately addressed the needs of English learners and special education students," Komrosky said.

A revised curriculum is set to be adopted at the school board's meeting Tuesday, July 18, Komrosky said, adding the board made arrangements for every K-5 student in the district to have a textbook from the existing curriculum when the new school year starts.

"That plan is in place and can be implemented should a new curriculum not be adopted by the Board of Education," Komrosky added.

The governor's announcement Thursday marks a new phase in a showdown over an elementary social studies curriculum rejected by district trustees in a 3-2 vote in June because its supplemental materials referenced LGBTQ civil rights leader Harvey Milk, whom Komrosky called a "pedophile."

Fourth graders MUST learn that Harvey Milk was a pioneer or we will fine your district millions of dollars. But they should NOT learn that he had sex with a 16 year old when he was 33 (according to a biography). Also, they should not learn about his close political relationship with Jonestown cult leader Jim Jones, who was a bisexual sadist. (link goes to lgbtqnation)

Newsom was thrilled to find a whole bookstore full of banned books during his "Red States Are Bad" tour. So, since they're in a bookstore, they're not banned, right?

Children's Literature

A Woke Children's Literature Cabal Is Conditioning Your Kid To Be An Obedient Leftist

Having been a part of the children's book publishing industry for several decades, and as a passionate participant, I have watched in growing dismay as the children's literature, or "kidlit," world has shifted and changed, and most recently taken a drastic plummet. Parents need to understand the destructive path this industry has taken, or they will discover too late as the damage hits home.

Seeing the Shift

This shift in kidlit has been happening for a long time. About 25 years ago, novels that portrayed kids as environmental activists began to win awards. About 15 years ago, the award-winning books showed shocking, disturbing scenarios. Ten years ago, books that depicted sexualization and abuse at younger ages began to win awards. Then, five years ago, it shifted a bit more to where books focused on systemic racism and sexual identity won awards. Today, if books don't include any of the above depictions, they are rarely published by medium and large publishing houses.

And it's the medium and large publishing houses that supply schools, libraries, and bookstores.

Eight years ago, I organized a statewide writer's conference for children's book authors. We brought in several high-powered industry members from major publishing houses. One editor's words threw open the window to this shifting world.

She asked a writer at our conference, who was a leftist himself, about his story. He explained that in his manuscript, his main character learns that his hero is gay. The protagonist is troubled by this and works through his feelings to come to acceptance later in the book.

The respected editor stopped the writer mid-explanation and said, "No." She explained that in kids' books, we must present the ideal as if it already exists. There can be no "being troubled by" gayness. There can be no "coming to terms with" sexual identity. The characters in our stories must immediately accept with positive responses any representation of modern social constructs. This immediately laudatory reaction to woke ideology is now required in kidlit. If an author doesn't portray it as such, his book will not be published.

This pronouncement by the editor shocked me and many other writers there. The line had now been drawn. As writers, our hope of publication rested on our willingness to positively portray woke ideology.

Shortly after this conference, as a part of several online writers' groups, I started to see comments like this: "We have a duty to save children from conservative, Christian thought," and "It's our responsibility as writers to right the wrongs of past traditional thinking." In their minds, they were in a strategic position as writers of kids' books to influence young minds in the direction they wanted. These groups soon canceled me.

There's more at the link.

Do you see any evidence to the contrary? Where do you get books for kids?

It's a bad thing when you try to get kids away from social media and you have a hard time finding good books for them, too! Maybe it's time for them to play outdoors! Maybe you could join them, if the weather permits. Have fun!

10 Great stuff, KT! My first impulse is to laugh at lefties like that ridiculous NEA shouter (that’s all she’s doing) or the Guardian for their obvious hypocrisy. BUT… as tempting as it may be to laugh, they are dangerous because they have power, they’re not afraid to use it (unlike 99.9% of the GOP) and (perhaps most worrying) they’re completely disconnected from reality and driven purely by emotions (i.e. girls can become boys and vis versa). That combo produces only destruction… Temecula just happens to be one place in their crosshairs. Nice place… I once ran the “Avacado Half Marathon” near there… they don’t stage that race anymore

12 The Left will soon call for the banning of Orwell’s 1984 when they finally realize it’s not their instruction manual but rather a warning against Leftist fascism.

I think every sensible teacher and school board should make it mandatory reading in grade 10 and then again in grade 12 where a discussion can be had on whether the student has experienced or seen what’s been described in the book since reading it in the 10th grade.

15 Yesterday I brought books I'd picked out for my granddaughters to the pool where my son has a membership. It was late afternoon and after a brief swim we were forced out of the pool due to thunder. I had thought a lot about the books. For the 4 yr old not quite reading yet in love with gymnastics, found an early reader with only a few words on a page about a little girl at a gymnastics meet. For the 6 yr old, Mr Popper's Penguins which I had told her was the first book her daddy wrote a book report on.
Next thing I knew, both girls had their noses buried in the books.
Life is good. ❤️

As a result of the Priest scandal in the Catholic church, a program was initiated in Catholic schools after years of research and debate. Every year in every class children get an age-appropriate week long daily lesson of about an hour in length. The teachers hate giving it as it is not a comfortable topic and they feel the scapegoat for what some Priests had done. But it's probably the opposite of the public school groomers. Ways for children to protect themselves from predators, who is a 'trusted' individual and who is not. It's been two decades for me so I forget all the details.

But if you're a parent (or grandparent who can help out financially) Catholic school - perhaps for at least K-8 - might be the safest place until this little insurrection of child abuse by some public school teachers is put down. I'm damn sure that no one is going to be encouraging any 'gender affirmation' or LGBT+ worship or any of that crap in a Catholic school.

3️⃣ A very small percentage of the American defense budget has been spent to assist Ukraine’s military.

4️⃣ The Ukrainian military, in defense of their homeland, is systematically dismantling Putin’s Army.

Good deal for America and all who love freedom.

Hurting children any way they can

However barely hidden to the kids

But out in the middle of their Uptown lofts
When they get home at night
Their fat, heterophobic "wives" will thrash them
Within inches of their lives

If you point this out and say we are not going to vote, legislate or pray our way out of this, you're an eeyore?
I'm told we have to be patient, "run for dog catcher, run for city council, run for school board!". "Be patient it may take ten, fifteen, twenty years!" People call our political opposition "evil" yet do not seem to fully understand what evil people are if you think you are going to just vote, legislate or pray your way out of this. The only way to defeat evil is to be meaner than evil. In the face of evil voting, legislating and praying is moderation and not a virtue. At some point the left will drag us into what we intend to avoid.
What is being done to kids right now is evil in its purest form. I am embarrassed as a man and a father that that I do nothing in the face of this. Being told to vote, run for office, legislate, pray is unacceptable in the face of evil like this.

It’s always existed. What brings people down is the instant communication we have today that makes it appear it’s so much worse than in the past. The fact is the fight against evil is and has always been a constant battle with ebbs and flows that won’t end until the earth ends. Some people give up and some continue the battle any way they can.

The invention of the cellphone - already configured for everything - that prior to that required some level of intelligence to connect with other smart people via computer is when things went to shit. It gave the dumb a voice. They then discovered more dumb people who then discovered more and like a snowball rolling downhill it got bigger and bigger. Then someone decided they could make a lot of money having a place for all the dummies to hang out. But they had to exclude the smart people from informing the dumb people about their dumbness. So the censors had to be at the ready 24/7. Then the government saw the opportunity to work with these platforms to control speech and the narrative, because the censors were now in place.

I don't know how to blow it all up but it needs to be done.

One of the conspiracy theories around Comet Pizza is that Comet Pizza isn't necessarily a place where the kiddies would be abducted, and the left was able to ridicule the conspiracy people by claiming it was absurd.

What isn't absurd is that there ARE a whole network of tunnels under DC streets, and it's at least POSSIBLE for those trafficking children within the district to use those tunnels to move from location to location, including right to some buildings that are occupied by international entities.

But sure, pizza is just pizza.

This is also an argument about women in the work place: how many people have dealt with a meltdown because of an office/plant/work site romance?

This is something that can be dealt with and endured at a normal job. In the military, it can get you killed (work place shootings notwithstanding.)

Yep. It is rather curious, the Pentagon that day had fewer working cameras than the Epstein jail, or the White House over this past 4th of July weekend.

I mean 2001 was a long long time ago, and we didn't have fancy things like cameras. Everyone knows Steve Jobs invented the camera with the iPhone 5.

219 The 4-chan autists really pushed the whole Qanon thing. Some of the posts were really good attempts at writing a political thriller.

All bullshit, but the way they'd wind a tale of "white hats" or "black hats" and some sort of secret military op that only Trump had control over was impressive. For a bunch of autists.

220 About 25 years ago, novels that portrayed kids as environmental activists began to win awards. About 15 years ago, the award-winning books showed shocking, disturbing scenarios. Ten years ago, books that depicted sexualization and abuse at younger ages began to win awards.
______________

Conferring awards on communist agitprop and those who promulgate is a time-worn tactic of the communists. Whitaker Chambers in "Witness" talks about this. It's at the point where I suspect anyone or anything that wins an "award" is a commie symp.

I remember hating the fact that years ago, they were essentially equating "human trafficking" with all prostitution.

Watering down the term was going to have consequences, including allowing the true evil to operate in relative anonymity due to the lessening of the meaning.

Andrew Tate is accused of "human trafficking." According to him, what he's accused of is encouraging gals to make Tik Tok videos, and then he profits from their view. Or something. That's it. So anyone who thinks he's prostituting women, or in any way coercing them to engage in sexual activity of any kind, that's a flat out lie.

I did read the recent SC ruling on "reasonable accommodations" thing, which struck down the idea that an employer could use basically any excuse, call it an "adverse" effect, and make employees who seek religious exemptions from various things (like working on Sunday) either bend the knee or be fired.

The ruling was 9-0. Granted, the ruling was not telling employers that employees can get away with ANYTHING by calling it a religious exemption, just that employers couldn't get away with calling EVERYTHING an adverse action against their business.

Then you are getting your information from the left.

He's not that. He's not what you've heard, and yes, the Romanian government (doing our government's bidding), is holding a guy on trumped up charges that are total bullshit.

Tik Tok has almost nothing to do with his business, although I'm sure like virtually every other influential (in the real sense of the word) person who has come to the forefront these past several years, he uses Tik Tok.

Watch the video. Or condemn the guy based on bad information, because if they can throw him in prison, they can throw YOU or anyone/everyone you care about in prison, for merely offering a different opinion than the accepted narrative.

They claim to have evidence that he was pimping, but not underaged girls. That may be true? But it is hardly an international horrific crime like they are treating it and people claim he is guilty of.

The guy was HUGELY successful as a dating coach/lifestyle influencer telling men to stop simping, stop using porn, stop being weak with women, and stand up for themselves. He advises men to grow up, get strong, make a name for themselves, and get off the couch playing video games to move on to become an adult male.

He's got some messed up stuff in there too, because he's Muslim and screwy about some things, but is overall positive and good for young men. Which is why they hate him.

The only 9/11 conspiracy I buy is that the deep state allowed it to happen to fund the military industrial complex and to get America to accept the "1984" social credit system utopia they desire.
Posted by: BetaCuck4Lyfe


My latest conspiracy theory about 9/11 is that indeed, crazy Islamists did it (as foretold and masterminded by Ramzi Yusef) but that the particular people who did the 9/11 attacks were "MK Ultra" controlled by the CIA to do what they did.
And the larger conspiracy is that voting, on a large scale, does not matter, because we have "been on rails" to reach this point in our lives where the government can grab control of everything. And ask yourself if the 2020 election was totally honest, and Joe Biden really got 81 million votes?

To the extent there was any conspiracy behind it, that's the most plausible and likely scenario. Yes, they knew it was coming and planned out how they could turn it to their advantage instead of trying to stop it.

Yeah, that's why I don't believe ANY of the sex stuff. According to him there's no evidence of him actually pimping anyone, because he never has, and the reason I believe it is, why would he. It goes against what he claims are his beliefs, the ones that have made him wildly successful.

And if he's telling the truth, that this is about Tik Tok influencers who the government CLAIMS he profited from, not from sex, but just from putting out videos... well yeah, that's not human trafficking.

I doubt they had any choice. Romania is NOT a third world shithole, they're a former Soviet vassal state, but one that has managed to become reasonably stable and economically sound.

Their problem is, like so many other Euro nations, they're fully dependent on the U.S. to protect them, and they're smack dab in the middle of every possible invader, from all sides (except I guess the German side... maybe... for now). If the U.S. says "get this guy," they're gonna get him. No bribes needed.
