Stopping the Demand for Commercial Sex and Sex Trafficking

Stopping the Demand for Commercial Sex and Sex Trafficking Pushing to Hold Businesses Accountable – The policies and practices of some major mainstream corporations (i.e., hotel, travel, social media industries) permit and turn a blind eye to sexual exploitation, enabling the insidious practice of buying and selling human beings for sex to flourish. NCOSE’s legal strategies will hold these companies accountable, forcing them to be part of the solution rather than a cog in the machine that keeps these practices going. Fighting to Keep Communities Exploitation-Free – Sexually Oriented Businesses (SOBs) like strip clubs and illicit massage parlors are increasingly popping up in communities, large and small. Sex trafficking, prostitution, child sexual abuse, violence against women are all taking place within their walls and frequently spilling out into the rest of the community. Local communities are ill-prepared to address them, and the NCOSE Law Center is there to provide tactical and strategic support to keep communities free of these exploitative businesses.

The tide is changing and the industries that fuel sexual exploitation are feeling the pressure increasing! Already in 2019, the NCOSE Law Center has hired additional staff, grown an incredible coalition network, and started a national education effort for young, budding attorneys which is enabling us to tackle many more of these issues. Even so, those who thrive on sexual exploitation are ramping up their efforts and pouring money and resources in an attempt to keep their exploitative industries afloat. We need you to help us put them out of business and put a stop to sexual exploitation in all its forms!

Satanic Temple head: ‘More than 50% of our membership is LGBTQ’

Featured Image

August 29, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — “It would be a conservative estimate to say that more than 50 percent of our membership is LGBTQ,” the head of the Satanic Temple said in a recent interview.

Lucien Greaves, who runs the U.S. Satanic Temple, told U.K.-based Attitudemagazine, “From the start, when one of our early actions was the Pink Mass, a lot of LGBTQ people were looking for another community that didn’t see them as defined by their sexual orientation.”

It appears Greaves was referring to a ritual he performed at the grave of the mother of the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, a fringe, vehemently anti-Catholic group condemned by pro-family activists for, among other things, reducing people to the sum of their sexual attractions (just as the LGBT lobby does). The “black mass,” meanwhile, is a blasphemous mockery of the Catholic Mass that includes the desecration of a consecreated host, which the Catholic Church teaches is the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.

“Within the Satanic Temple, we’re all pretty much one and the same,” Greaves continued. “We’re all Satanists and it’s not like we have ‘tolerance’ for trans people or gay people or sex workers, we just don’t f------ care, and a lot of people in those communities appreciate that.”

The Satanic Temple has made a name for itself campaigning against pro-life laws in the name of “religious freedom” and supporting the LGBT lobby.

“Our chapters are always involved with Pride parades in the United States, they’re always doing something for the LGBTQ community and they’re always open about inclusion,” said Greaves.

Other recent activities by the Satanic Temple include erecting a statue next to a Nativity scene in Illinois and bringing a giant statue of Baphomet — a half-man, half-goat creature representing the devil — to the Arkansas state capitol.

The late Vatican chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth wrote in his book An Exorcist Explains the Demonic that satanic influence can “lead to confusion about one’s gender,” “particularly in the young.”

“The most frequent weak points in man are, from time to time, always the same: pride, money, and lust,” he wrote.

Satanists don’t promote ‘a belief in a personal Satan’?

Pink News article on Greaves’s comments to Attitude reported, “A commitment to Satan is not required to join the Temple, although a commitment to trolling anti-LGBT evangelicals is desirable. The group’s website clarifies that members do not actually ‘believe in the existence of Satan or the supernatural.’”

“It explains: ‘As such, we do not promote a belief in a personal Satan. To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions. Satanists should actively work to hone critical thinking and exercise reasonable agnosticism in all things.’”

That sentiment is similar to what the Satanic Temple in Canada’s national coordinator said before hosting the country’s first satanic “black mass.”

They are “atheistic Satanists” who don’t believe in “supernaturalism” but “look to science as our arbiter, Nicholas Marc of the Satanic Temple in Canada said.

Fr. Amorth also addressed this in his book, writing: 

Generally one distinguishes [between] a personal Satanism (or occultism) and an impersonal or rationalist Satanism. The first recognizes the personal nature of Satan, and the followers entreat, adore, and honor him as a god. The second, the impersonal or rationalist, does not believe in Satan’s personal nature, that is, in the metaphysical sense; rather, they see him as a cosmic energy that is present in each man and in the world and that, when called upon, will emerge in all of his power to carry out the most absurd and atrocious perversions, always connecting them to esoteric rites.

What is their objective? Satanists wish to develop this depraved form of devotion through a diffusion of the theory and practice of three basic principles: you can do all that you wish, no one has the right to command you, and you are the god of yourself. ...

In appearance these principles are seductive, especially for younger people, because they delude them into thinking that life is a beautiful holiday in an imaginary land of playthings, where everything is permitted and where your ‘I’ does not recognize any limits regarding pleasure and enjoyment.

Colorado-based exorcist Father Chad Ripperger questioned in a previous LifeSiteNews interview the premise of atheistic satanism.

“My question is, if it’s just a myth, why are you reenacting all this? Why are you doing it?” he said of the Canadian black mass.

And because Satan exists, “in that sense it doesn’t matter if they actually believe if he’s real or not; if they do the particular ritual which will actually invoke him, he will possibly, God permitting, show up, or it will have an effect on the spiritual level independent” of what the Satanists believe, he said.

Witchcraft has been on the rise in recent years, with feminists turning to it as a form of anti-Trump protest. A movement encouraging people to “hex” the president has emerged. 

“The number of witches and Americans practicing Wicca religious rituals increased dramatically since the 1990s, with several recent studies indicating there may be at least 1.5 million witches across the country,” Newsweek reported in November 2018. “A Trinity College study conducted in 1990 estimated only about 8,000 Wiccans in the U.S., but the increase has been led by a rejection of mainstream Christianity among young Americans as well as a rise in occultism. With 1.5 million potential practicing witches across the U.S., witchcraft has more followers than the 1.4 million mainline members of the Presbyterian church.”

Priest accused of stealing $98K from church to pay Grindr hookups

Joseph McLoone

August 21, 2019 | 3:52pm | Updated

A Pennsylvania priest stole nearly $100,000 in church donations to pay men he met on Grindr for sex acts — and to pay off his personal credit cards, prosecutors said.

The Rev. Joseph McLoone, 56, was arrested on felony theft and related charges Wednesday after investigators revealed that he opened a secret checking account in 2011 to deposit donations from parishioners at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Downingtown, the Chester County District Attorney’s Office announced.

McLoone, of Downingtown, then funneled the donation checks into an unauthorized “St. Joseph Activity Account” at TD Bank for the next six years and stole $98,405 in all, according to Chester County district attorney chief of staff Charles Gaza.

“Father McLoone held a position of leadership and his parishioners trusted him to properly handle their generous donations to the church,” Gaza said in a statement. “Father McLoone violated the trust of the members of St. Joseph’s for his own personal gain.”

McLoone allegedly withdrew roughly $46,000 in cash from the undisclosed account in Ocean City, New Jersey, where he owns a beach house. He also admitted to using some of the funds to pay for his “personal relationships” with other men, including $1,200 McLoone deposited into the commissary account of an inmate in a New York correctional facility, according to a criminal complaint.

The inmate, identified in court documents as Brian Miller, was never a Pennsylvania resident and had no previous connection to McLoone’s church. McLoone told investigators that Miller lived in New York City and that he met the inmate via Grindr for a sexual relationship, the complaint shows

McLoone separately made 17 payments totaling $1,720 to men he met on Grindr via the Square online payment app and doubled the fee he collected as a stipend for each Mass, wedding and funeral held at St. Joseph’s Parish, prosecutors claim. He’s also accused of using $3,000 of the stolen funds to pay off personal credit cards.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia launched an investigation of McLoone in early 2018. He was later put on administrative leave before resigning as pastor of the parish, according to a statement released Wednesday by diocese officials.

“These charges are serious and disturbing,” the statement read. “The Archdiocese and the parish will continue to cooperate with law enforcement as the criminal matter enters its next phase. Pending the outcome, Monsignor McLoone remains on administrative leave. Information regarding his arrest will be shared with the Saint Joseph Parish community.”

McLoone could not be immediately reached for comment Wednesday, but his attorney denied the allegations when reached by The Post.

“What he did with his own personal money is his business,” attorney Melissa McCafferty said. “It may be between him and the archdiocese, but it’s not between him and law enforcement.”

Citing McLoone’s “private life,” McCafferty declined to discuss details of the allegations but said he had provided authorities with detailed financial records.

You might wish to ignore the great trans social experiment on our kids, but it’s not ignoring you

Featured Image

August 26, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – With the rollout of the Ford Government’s new sex-ed curriculum, it would seem that all hope of preventing Ontario’s children from being indoctrinated into the dangerous new gender ideologies wreaking such havoc across the Western world is now lost. Despite Ford’s promise to remove gender theory entirely, it remains firmly in place, and pre-teen children will still be introduced to the subject. The impact of this, as a chilling report from Barbara Kay in the National Post earlier this summer

It’s Time for a National Legal Strategy to Defend Human Dignity

Banner Image

Until now, there has been no voice in the courts and legislatures advocating for human dignity and against all forms of sexual abuse and exploitation. In the vacuum of a national legal strategy on these issues, pro-sexual exploitation lobbyists have stepped in to promote radical and damaging legislation and legal precedents promoting pornography, prostitution, sexually grooming children for abuse, increasing sex trafficking, and more.

Laws are meant to instruct citizens in virtue

Capital One thief is a biological male, not a woman – a ‘trans’

SEATTLE, Washington, August 1, 2019 ― If you believe that the computer engineer arrested on Monday for stealing the data of 106 million Capital One bank customers is female, it's likely because mainstream media is using his preferred pronoun "she."

As a matter of biological fact, Paige A. Thompson is a 33-year-old man from Seattle who posted on Twitter a selfie of himself wearing false eyelashes before gun-toting FBI agents raided his home.

Despite this, Thompson has been referred to as a "woman" and as "she" by numerous mainstream news sources, including The New York Times, CNN, CBS News, and Bloomberg.

Thompson, who is a former employee of Amazon, is a software developer with a penchant for living online. According to the legal complaint, Thompson, who sometimes used the online alias “erratic,” hacked into a computer owned by Capital One Financial Corporation, obtained the data of about 106 million customers or would-be customers, posted it on “GitHub”, a sharing service used by computer programmers, and later bragged about it on “Slack”, another sharing service.

“... Paige A. Thompson … has made statements on social media evidencing the fact that she [sic] has information of Capital One, and that she recognizes that she has acted illegally,” stated Special Agent Joel Martini of the FBI’s Cyber Squad.

On July 17, someone contacted Capital One to inform the company that their data was on GitHub and provided a computer address which contained Thompson’s name.  Martini’s investigation led him to connect Thompson’s online aliases with Thompson, who discussed his theft on various social media, including Twitter.

“I’ve basically strapped myself with a bomb vest …. Dropping Capitol [sic] One’s dox and admitting it,” Thompson wrote to the “reporting source”.

The New York Times reported earlier this week that Thompson discussed his “personal challenges” in online forums for months this year: “suicidal thoughts, struggles to find employment, and difficulties she [sic] had faced since transitioning to a woman years before.”

According to Thompson’s former friend Sarah Stensberg, Thompson’s life was indeed erratic, sometimes following a “promising career” as a software developer, and sometimes overturning his life, sometimes finding community online with other computer scientists, and sometimes alienating all his friends. 

“It was just a lifelong thing for her [sic],” Stensberg said.

“When she gets in these phases of intensity, she does really stupid things. She’ll push everyone away. She’ll write threatening emails. She’ll post things online about the things she’s doing.”

Stensberg’s husband has known Thompson since he was a teenager; they both belonged to a computer programmers’ club. Thompson grew up in a broken home, and at one point moved out to live with another software developer, Stensberg reported.

Thompson dropped out of Bellevue Community College to do computer-related jobs, and when Stensberg met him in 2010, his disruptive behavior was quite obvious. She and her husband once took their friend to the hospital to get him into an “inpatient treatment center,” but later conflicts led them to file a protective order against him.

Another friend, Aeif Dunn, reported that Thompson talked about the difficulties of transitioning into a woman and how he thought the change had “made it difficult for [him] to associate with people professionally.”

Sadly, when Thompson blogged some years earlier about problems in exploring “reassignment surgery,” he said what he really wanted and needed was friends.

“I think really what I want and need is friends,” he wrote.

“I think my problems with acceptance come from the fact that I have so few friends to accept me when I could.”

Thompson seems to have depended on online communities for any semblance of companionship and recently informed his Twitter followers that he wanted to check into a mental hospital.

“After this is over I’m going to go check into the mental hospital for an indefinite amount of time,” he tweeted.

“I have a whole list of things that will ensure my involuntary confinement from the world. The kind that they can’t ignore or brush off onto the crisis clinic. I’m never coming back.”

In May, a former “transman” gave a lecture in Vancouver in which she blamed the internet, particularly social media, for encouraging vulnerable, unhappy children to undergo “transitioning” into the opposite sex.

FBI Document Warns Conspiracy Theories Are A New Domestic Terrorism Threat

A recent intelligence bulletin comes as the FBI is facing pressure to explain who it considers an extremist, and how the government prosecutes domestic terrorists.

The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News. (Read the document below.)

The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists,” as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that haven’t been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.

A recent intelligence bulletin comes as the FBI is facing pressure to explain who it considers an extremist, and how the government prosecutes domestic terrorists.

The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement).

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document states. It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.

The FBI said another factor driving the intensity of this threat is “the uncovering of real conspiracies or cover-ups involving illegal, harmful, or unconstitutional activities by government officials or leading political figures.” The FBI does not specify which political leaders or which cover-ups it was referring to.

President Trump is mentioned by name briefly in the latest FBI document, which notes that the origins of QAnon is the conspiratorial belief that “Q,” allegedly a government official, “posts classified information online to reveal a covert effort, led by President Trump, to dismantle a conspiracy involving ‘deep state’ actors and global elites allegedly engaged in an international child sex trafficking ring.”

This recent intelligence bulletin comes as the FBI is facing pressure to explain who it considers an extremist, and how the government prosecutes domestic terrorists. In recent weeks the FBI director has addressed domestic terrorism multiple times but did not publicly mention this new conspiracy theorist threat.

The FBI is already under fire for its approach to domestic extremism. In a contentious hearing last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Christopher Wray faced criticism from Democrats who said the bureau was not focusing enough on white supremacist violence. “The term ‘white supremacist,’ ‘white nationalist’ is not included in your statement to the committee when you talk about threats to America,” Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said. “There is a reference to racism, which I think probably was meant to include that, but nothing more specific.”

 

Wray told lawmakers the FBI had done away with separate categories for black identity extremists and white supremacists, and said the bureau was instead now focusing on “racially motivated” violence. But he added, “I will say that a majority of the domestic terrorism cases that we’ve investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence.”

The FBI had faced mounting criticism for the term “black identity extremists,” after its use was revealed by Foreign Policy magazine in 2017. Critics pointed out that the term was an FBI invention based solely on race, since no group or even any specific individuals actually identify as black identity extremists.

In May, Michael C. McGarrity, the FBI’s assistant director of the counterterrorism division, told Congress the bureau now “classifies domestic terrorism threats into four main categories: racially motivated violent extremism, anti-government/anti-authority extremism, animal rights/environmental extremism, and abortion extremism,” a term the bureau uses to classify both pro-choice and anti-abortion extremists.

The new focus on conspiracy theorists appears to fall under the broader category of anti-government extremism. “This is the first FBI product examining the threat from conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists and provides a baseline for future intelligence products,” the document states.

The new category is different in that it focuses not on racial motivations, but on violence based specifically on beliefs that, in the words of the FBI document, “attempt to explain events or circumstances as the result of a group of actors working in secret to benefit themselves at the expense of others” and are “usually at odds with official or prevailing explanations of events.”

The FBI acknowledges conspiracy theory-driven violence is not new, but says it’s gotten worse with advances in technology combined with an increasingly partisan political landscape in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election. “The advent of the Internet and social media has enabled promoters of conspiracy theories to produce and share greater volumes of material via online platforms that larger audiences of consumers can quickly and easily access,” the document says.

The bulletin says it is intended to provide guidance and “inform discussions within law enforcement as they relate to potentially harmful conspiracy theories and domestic extremism.”

The FBI Phoenix field office referred Yahoo News to the bureau’s national press office, which provided a written statement.

“While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, the FBI routinely shares information with our law enforcement partners in order to assist in protecting the communities they serve,” the FBI said.

In its statement, the FBI also said it can “never initiate an investigation based solely on First Amendment protected activity. As with all of our investigations, the FBI can never monitor a website or a social media platform without probable cause.”

The Department of Homeland Security, which has also been involved in monitoring domestic extremism, did not return or acknowledge emails and phone requests for comment.

While not all conspiracy theories are deadly, those identified in the FBI’s 15-page report led to either attempted or successfully carried-out violent attacks. For example, the Pizzagate conspiracy led a 28-year-old man to invade a Washington, D.C., restaurant to rescue the children he believed were being kept there, and fire an assault-style weapon inside.
