Family sues D.C. school for female teacher’s oral sex with male teen

The phenomenon of pedophiles, pederasts, and other sex predators is a distressing commentary on our fallen human nature and the times we live in.

We are only too familiar with male sex predators. Increasingly, however, females are the predators, especially female teachers preying on teenage boys, Mary Kay Letourneau being the most infamous.

It seems Letourneau merely blazed the way for other female sex predators, the news of which appears at least once a week on the Daily Mail. Finally, the family of a victim is bringing this sick phenomenon to national attention by launching a $11 million lawsuit against a public school, Options Public Charter School in northeast Washington, D.C., for hiring the culprit, a 22-year-old substitute teacher named Symone Greene.

In America today, nothing talks louder or can get results than a big lawsuit.

Options Public Charter School

The family of a 17-year-old student at Options Public Charter School in D.C. has filed a lawsuit for $11 million, claiming a substitute teacher maliciously made sexual contact with him earlier this month.

Symone Greene, 22, first met the victim, a football player, on Oct. 17, Greene’s first day of work at Options Public Charter School.

The student, who is described as having a learning disability, told police he was working as an office assistant and helped Greene twice that day in her English class. The student said he flirted with Greene during class, gave her his cell phone number, then texted her, asking if she was “kinky.”

According to court documents, the two later met up in her empty classroom, where Greene allegedly performed oral sex on the teen — all recorded on video by the “victim” without Greene’s knowledge, according to the warrant. The teen then shared the video with his teammates and friends.

Greene allegedly sent the teen a text message over the weekend asking him not to tell anyone because “it is not right for a student and teacher to have a relationship.”

The teen’s mother filed a $11 million lawsuit Tuesday in Prince George’s County against Greene; the D.C. Public Charter School Board; the court-appointed receiver and custodian of Options Public Charter School Joshua Kern; and SOS Personnel, the private Delaware company that initially hired Greene.

The lawsuit claims:

  • Greene was “unqualified to serve as a teacher” for at-risk students at the school and shouldn’t have been hired as a substitute teacher in the first place.
  • Green had initiated the flirting that led to the alleged sexual encounter.
  • Greene had deliberately and maliciously made sexual contact with the victim that day, and exposed him to possible sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Another teacher had witnessed the flirting but did nothing to intervene.
  • The school’s “no cell phone” policy was clearly violated because the victim recorded the sexual encounter on his cell phone.

Although the age of consent in D.C. is 16, Greene was charged because she was the teen’s teacher. According to D.C. law, age-of-consent rules are not in play when it comes to “significant relationships” — a category that includes teachers and their students.

Greene pleaded not guilty to first-degree sexual assault against a minor in a significant relationship.

According to various studies, female offenders account for 4% to as many as 63% of all child molestation. (See Wikipedia)

Watchdog group sues State of Maryland for non-citizens voter fraud

Have you wondered why, with all the rampant vote fraud in the 2012 election (as well as the fraud already evident in the 2014 mid-term election), the Republican Party never did anything about it? (See “22 signs of Democrat Voter Fraud in 2012 Election”)

The reason goes back to a legal agreement called the Consent Decree that the Republican National Committee (RNC) made with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 1982. (See Why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud)

The GOP’s hands are tied, but that doesn’t mean We the People must just watch with frustration and do nothing.

Now, an election integrity watchdog group, Virginia Voters Alliance, is doing something about election fraud committed by non-U.S. citizens in the state of Maryland.

Bryan Preston reports for PJMedia, Oct. 29, 2014:

An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.

The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes. The same group previously found that about 40,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.

It is a federal crime to cast votes if you are not legally eligible to vote. Non-citizens, whether in the country legally or not, are prohibited from voting in most local and all state and federal elections. Yet the VVA investigation found that hundreds of non-citizens have been voting in Frederick County, Maryland. One in seven Maryland residents are non-U.S. citizens.

Pat McDonough“The lawsuit is the equivalent of the lookout spotting the iceberg ahead of the Titanic,” state Del. Pat McDonough told the Tatler. He added that the group’s investigation found a voter fraud “smoking gun.”

Maryland state law makes it easier for non-citizens, both those present legally and those in the country against the law, to vote. Maryland issues drivers licenses to legal and illegal aliens. Driver’s licenses in turn make it easier under the Motor Voter law to register to vote. Maryland also offers copious taxpayer-funded social programs to non-citizens in the state.

The group filed suit in Baltimore’s U.S. District Court on Friday. They are suing the Frederick County Board of Elections and the Maryland State Board of Elections.

Del. Pat McDonough (R-Baltimore and Harford Counties) detailed the alleged fraud in a Maryland press conference today. He is calling for a special state prosecutor because the fraud may be taking place statewide, with significant impact on Maryland elections. Maryland currently holds 10 electoral votes in presidential elections. McDonough is also proposing legislation including voter ID to close the loopholes that he says non-citizens are using to cast votes.

In a statement, Del. McDonough says:

There are frequent allegations in America and Maryland about the existence of voter fraud. In the case I am presenting today, there is documentation and a track record. The numbers and facts from the records in Frederick County are the tip of the iceberg. When these numbers are multiplied by including the other subdivisions in Maryland, the potential number is alarming and could change the outcome of a close statewide election.

Even more dangerous is the probability of many local elections that are decided by a few votes could be affected. All 188 members of the Maryland General Assembly are standing for re-election as well as many local office holders.

The important election that we have coming up demands that citizens’ votes are not diluted or cancelled by non-citizens who are not legally permitted to vote. The sanctity of the ballot box, because of the flawed system we are pointing out, has already been violated in previous elections.

The purpose of the lawsuit is to mandate those responsible for the administration of the election process will remove the non-citizens from the final voting count.

The purpose of the investigation by the special prosecutor is to penetrate more deeply statewide and determine why this fraud or any other related violation was allowed to occur.

The purpose of the legislation is to plug the massive loophole in current law which permitted these fraudulent practices to take place.

Larry Hogan

Maryland is a Democratic stronghold especially around its larger cities, but the governor’s race there is tightening as Republican Larry Hogan gains ground. Illegal votes could tip the balance if the legal vote is close enough on election day. “What if Hogan loses by 500 votes or 1000 votes?” McDonough asked.

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is expected to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. Del. McDonough noted that the fraud uncovered by VVA occurred on O’Malley’s watch.

Powerful video of Black activists against Democrats

black activists2

The video below is a powerful heart-rending crie de coeur by four black activists — Mark Carter, Paul McKinley, Harold “Noonie” Ward, and Joseph Watkins. Speaking to fellow blacks, the four men tell the truth, that –

  • Democrats, not Republicans, have hurt blacks.
  • Blacks should stop voting Democrat — including for Obama — because Democrats have done nothing for blacks. Voting Democrat has meant blacks getting poorer and poorer.
  • Blacks commit crimes against fellow blacks, not just in the streets, but in city halls (like Detroit) and state capitols.
  • So-called Black “leaders” abuse, oppress, exploit and mis-govern fellow blacks.
  • Democrats’ talk about raising the minimum wage is ludicrous because blacks’ problem is not about minimum wage. Blacks don’t have jobs.
  • Liberals “force” blacks into a life of welfare. Blacks don’t want welfare. What blacks want are opportunities to go to work and to own businesses.
  • “They only come around when it’s time for elections.”
  • The hundreds of billions of federal dollars to “improve” black communities actually go to line the pockets of Democratic political groups, many of them headed by blacks.

To the above list, should be added this:

  • Obama’s open-border illegal immigration policy hurts black Americans.

Non-citizen voters gave Obama the edge in 2008 and 2012 — and will in 2014 if we don’t do something about it

I read this article 2 days ago, but found it so depressing that I can bring myself to post it only today.

Ask yourself this question:

When you registered to vote, did anyone ask you to produce proof of your U.S. citizenship?

No? Instead, at best you were asked to produce a photo I.D., like a driver’s license to prove who you say you are. However, a driver’s license doesn’t and can’t prove you are a U.S. citizen.

It turns out ILLEGAL aliens in the United States have been voting in our elections, even though they are not eligible and are not supposed to vote. And they are getting away with this travesty precisely because voter registration doesn’t require proof of U.S. citizenship. That is why Democrats are so intent on allowing illegal aliens obtain a driver’s license.

In an article for The Washington Post on October 24, 2014, “Could Non-Citizens Decide the November Election?,” political scientists Jesse Richman and David Earnest report on their stunning research finding that non-U.S. citizens had voted in both the 2008 and 2010 elections, and they did so in sufficient numbers that they likely changed the outcome, that is, the election and reelection of Barack Obama to the presidency, as well as the election of a Democratic majority to the U.S. Senate.

Jesse Richman is Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Old Dominion University, and Director of the ODU Social Science Research Center. David Earnest is Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Old Dominion University, and Associate Dean for Research & Graduate Studies in the College of Arts and Letters.

Their research findings will be published in a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies.

This was Richman and Earnest’s research methodology. Using data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), the two political scientists:

  • Assembled a sample of 32,800 for the 2008 election, 339 of whom were non-citizens.
  • Assembled a sample of 55,400 for the 2010 election, 489 of whom were non-citizens.
  • Matched respondents to voter files so as to verify whether they’d actually voted.

Here are the political scientists’ research findings:

  • Although most non-U.S. citizens do not register to vote, let alone vote, however –
  • More than 14% of non-U.S. citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they had registered to vote.
  • 6.4% of non-citizens voted in 2008.
  • 2.2% of non-citizens voted in 2010.
  • Richman and Earnest concluded that enough non-citizens had voted in 2008 and 2012 so that their votes changed the outcome of those elections.
Estimated Voter Turnout by Non-Citizens
2008 2010
Self reported and/or verified 38 (11.3%) 13 (3.5%)
Self reported and verified 5 (1.5%) N.A.
Adjusted estimate 21 (6.4%) 8 (2.2%)

In the words of Richman and Earnest:

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

Richman and Earnest also found that photo I.D., a policy advocated by conservatives to prevent voter fraud, “appears strikingly ineffective.” As many as three quarters of the non-citizens who indicated they were asked to provide photo identification at the polls claimed to have subsequently voted.

The political scientists propose that public information may be a better method to reduce voting by non-citizens because the more educated non-citizens were less likely to violate the law by voting. As an example, in 2008, no non-citizens with a college degree or higher voted, whereas non-citizens with less than a college degree were significantly more likely to have voted. This suggests that non-citizen voting may be due to a lack of awareness about the illegality of their voting.

Based on the 2008 and 2012 precedents, Richman and Earnest justly ask if control of the Senate in 2014 will be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens.

If early voting in North Carolina is any indication, the answer is “Yes.”

Kenric Ward reports for Watchdog that early voting began last Thursday, Oct. 24, in North Carolina, and already the state’s election board had found 154 ineligible non-citizen voters on its poll lists.

Those 154 illegal immigrants are on NC’s voter rolls, courtesy of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA designees can be up to 31 years old. When  illegal immigrants are certified under DACA, deportation proceedings are frozen. That opens a window for those illegals to obtain driver’s licenses in North Carolina, said James Johnson, president of North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement.

And with driver’s license in hand, unscrupulous and dishonest illegal aliens can and do register to vote.

NC’s State Board of Elections are examining more than 9,000 additional voters’ names for their questionable legal status. But they do not expect to finish checking before early voting had begun. Special counsel Brian LiVecchi told Watchdog.org that “We don’t know what we don’t know.”

“We want to know how such a large number of non-U.S. citizens were ever registered to vote in the first place,” said Jay DeLancy, executive director of the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina. “There is clearly a system failure here and we need the Board of Elections and the DMV to help the Legislature and the public understand where the problem lies.”

NC State Rep. Christopher Mills (R-Hampstead) wrote a letter to the Board of Elections citing “an extremely large number of non-citizens” on North Carolina’s voter rolls. Mills asked that election officials explain the “likely procedure in which these non-citizens were allowed to register to vote … and the board’s actions for immediate removal.”

So what do we do about this outrageous travesty?

I suggest the following:

  1. Contact your Congress critters and DEMAND that they look into this. Click here.
  2. Contact your state’s attorney general, who is supposed to oversee elections, and DEMAND that they inspect the voters’ registrations to spot and eliminate non-U.S. citizens. Click here to find out the name, address, and phone no. of your attorney general.
  3. Publicize by disseminating this post to your family, friends, and contacts via e-mail and social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)!!!

Monday Chicago shooting report: Same story every weekend…

rahm_emanuel_2

MyFoxChicago: Two men were killed and at least 20 other people have been injured in shootings on the South and West sides since Friday night.

About 11:40 p.m. Friday, a man was killed in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side.

Charles Wright, 39, was shot in the abdomen about 11:30 p.m. in the 5300 block of South Hoyne, authorities said. Wright, of the 3100 block of West 71st Street, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:35 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A shooting at 10 p.m. that night left one man dead and another wounded in Austin on the West Side.

The two were standing in a yard in the 5500 block of West Corcoran when multiple people fired shots from a sidewalk, police said.

Denzell Franklin, 23, was shot in the face and armpit and was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:43 p.m., according to police and the medical examiner’s office. The other man, 24, walked to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park with a gunshot wound to the arm, police said. His condition had stabilized late Friday night. Two people were taken into custody in connection with the shooting, but their ages and genders were not immediately known.

A man was critically wounded in the most recent nonfatal shooting early Sunday in Chicago Lawn on the South Side. The 31-year-old was shot in the neck about 4:25 a.m. in the 2200 block of West 69th Street, police said, citing preliminary information. He was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said. Details on the circumstances of the shooting weren’t immediately available.

Two men–including an off-duty Cook County sheriff’s officer–were shot within ten minutes in the neighboring South Side communities of Gresham and Auburn Gresham.

At 3:40 p.m., someone tried to rob the 34-year-old sheriff’s officer in the 7900 block of South Paulina and shot him in the hand, police said. His condition was stabilized at Christ Medical Center.

Ten minutes later, officers found a 21-year-old man lying on a sidewalk in the 8900 block of South Carpenter with gunshot wounds to his leg and shoulder, police said. His condition was not immediately known.

A 42-year-old man was shot and critically wounded about a half-hour earlier in West Pullman on the Far South Side. The man was walking in the 11900 block of South Eggleston about 3:20 a.m. when he heard shots, felt pain and realized he had been shot in the left side of his chest, police said. He was taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center, police said. A police source said the man has documented gang ties.

At least 15 other people have been hurt in separate shootings since 8:40 p.m. Friday.

Twice-deported illegal “immigrant” kills two deputies

This is what happens when the federal government shirks its responsibilities in enforcing America’s immigration laws, resulting in an effectively open and therefore meaningless border.

Don Thompson reports for the AP, Oct. 26, 2014, that 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City, suspected of killing two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California, is an illegal alien from Mexico with a drug conviction who had twice been deported back to Mexico.

The shootings began when Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, was shot in the forehead with an assault rifle at close range as he checked out a suspicious car in a motel parking lot. After killing Oliver, the gunman shot Anthony Holmes, 38, of Sacramento at least twice, including once in the head, during an attempted carjacking.

Oliver, a 15-year veteran of the department, left a wife and two daughters. Holmes is in fair condition.

The attackers then stole a pickup truck and fled about 30 miles northeast into neighboring Placer County. Two deputies who approached the pickup while it was parked alongside a road were shot with an AR-15-type assault weapon and never had a chance to return fire, Placer County sheriff’s spokeswoman Dena Erwin said.

Homicide Detective Michael David Davis Jr., 42, died at a hospital 26 years to the day after his father, for whom he was named, died in the line of duty as a Riverside County deputy.

Deputy Jeff Davis was treated for a gunshot wound to the arm. The two deputies are not related.

Michael Davis and Danny Oliver

The gunman fled into a neighborhood near a high school and ran into a home. Police used tear gas to force him to surrender.

The suspected shooter told Sacramento County Sheriff’s investigators that he was Marcelo Marquez. However, his fingerprints match the biometric records of a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte in a federal database, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.

Kice said Monroy-Bracamonte was first removed from the country in 1997 after being convicted in Arizona for possession of narcotics for sale. In 2001, he was arrested and repatriated to Mexico a second time.

Monroy-Bracamonte is being held without bail on suspicion of two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of carjacking. A request has been made to California local authorities to turn Monroy-Bracamonte over to federal custody after his case is adjudicated so ICE can purse his deportation.

Monroy-Bracamonte’s wife, 38-year-old Janelle Marquez Monroy, was also in custody on suspicion of attempted murder and carjacking after the attack on Friday that left two deputies dead and two other victims wounded.

Investigators spent Saturday at the multiple crime scenes “trying to kind of sort through the chaos so we can methodically rebuild this,” Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner said. The suspects have talked to investigators, but what sparked the shootings remained unclear. Bonner said, “‘Why,’ I guess, will remain a question for a long time. Why was his reaction so violent?” It was also unclear what brought the heavily armed suspects from Utah to California.

Several dozen law enforcement vehicles, with lights silently flashing, escorted a hearse carrying Michael Davis’ flag-draped casket to a funeral home as bystanders and law enforcement officials hugged, saluted and wiped away tears.

“It’s a nightmare for all of us,” Bonner said, and recalled Davis as a well-liked investigator who once took it upon himself to organize a funeral for an abandoned baby. “He saw it, his heart ached, and he did something about it,” Bonner said. “That’s who he was.”

Oklahoma City in America’s spiritual war: 10 Commandments monument smashed into pieces

eye-of-the-storm

There is a ferocious spiritual war in America, and Oklahoma City seems to be at the center, targeted by malevolent people and forces.

In 2009 when Republicans were in control, the state legislature gave the green light for a Ten Commandments statue, paid for with private funds, to be placed outside the state capitol building in Oklahoma City.

Three years later, in November 2012, a 6-feet tall granite monument of the Ten Commandments was erected.

10 commandments monument outside Oklahoma state Capitol

Almost immediately, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) leveled a lawsuit to remove the monument, claiming that it violated the state constitution’s ban against using public property to support church or religion.

The ACLU’s lawsuit was followed by the New York-based Satanic Temple declaring their intention to build a 7 ft. tall statue of their master next to the Ten Commandments — all in the name of “religious parity.”

Then, on September 21, 2014, a local satanist group conducted a blasphemous “Black Mass” right smack in the Oklahoma City Civic Center.

Alton Nolen

Alton Nolen

Three days after the satanic Black Mass, on September 24, 2014, a recent convert to Islam, 30-year-old Alton Nolen, walked into a Vaughan Foods administrative office in Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City, and attacked two female employees with a knife. Nolen beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54, and repeatedly stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, who survived the attack. (See “Of course he did: Obama Official Praises Mosque Of Oklahoma Beheader Alton Nolen”)

Mark Vaughan, the company’s chief operating officer, who is also a reserve sheriff’s deputy, shot Nolen, stopping the attack. Nolen was charged with first-degree murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon, and may also face federal charges as well.

Writing for CNN, Mel Robbins is incredulous that the FBI refuses to call Nolen’s attack and beheading a terrorist attack:

It was a terrorist attack, and everyone knows it. Why won’t the government say so? The Washington Post reports that the FBI found ‘no indication that Alton Alexander Nolen was copying the beheadings of journalists in Syria by the Islamic State … adding that they are treating this as an incident of workplace violence.’

Workplace violence? You can’t be serious! Oh wait — the FBI must mean “workplace violence” as in the case of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the terrorist convicted in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting that killed 13 people and left many more wounded.

On September 19, 2014, the ACLU’s lawsuit to remove the Ten Commandments monument was thrown out by an Oklahoma County judge.

So satanists took matters into their own talons.

Zak Patterson reports for Oklahoma City’s KOCO that at approximately 9 p.m. on Oct. 23, 2014, a man drove his car into the Ten Commandments monument and smashed it into pieces.

The suspect told the Secret Service, upon his arrest, that Satan had told him to do it. He admitted that he had urinated on the monument before running it over.

The suspect reportedly also made vague threats at the Oklahoma City Federal Building and said he would kill President Obama and spit on a photo of Obama. The man was taken into custody. The vehicle involved was abandoned and has since been impounded.

The cleanup is underway and parts of the Ten Commandments monument will be restored.

The ACLU of Oklahoma made this statement following the incident:

“The ACLU of Oklahoma and our clients are outraged at this apparent act of vandalism. While we have and continue to seek the removal of the Ten Commandments monument from the Capitol grounds through the judicial process, the Ten Commandments constitute a strong foundation in our clients’ deeply held religious beliefs. To see the Ten Commandments desecrated by vandals is highly offensive to them as people of faith. Our Oklahoma and Federal Constitutions seek to create a society in which people of all faiths and those of no faith at all can coexist as equals without fear of repressions from the government or their neighbors. Whether it is politicians using religion as a political tool or vandals desecrating religious symbols, neither are living up to the full promise of our founding documents.”

An official with the US Attorney’s Office said if enough evidence is found against the suspect regarding his alleged threats against the president then a report will be submitted to the US Attorney’s Office.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call OHP at 405-425-7709.

Michael Reed Jr.

Michael Reed Jr.

The police have since identified the man as Michael Tate Reed Jr., 29. He is from Roland and was taken to Oklahoma County mental facility for an emergency order of detention and a mental evaluation.

Reed’s mother, Crystal Tucker, said her son “would never deface something that meant so much to him. He takes the Ten Commandments very seriously.” Tucker said Reed has been battling breakdowns for two years ever since he was injured at work four years ago. (See “Psychiatric nurse says half of patients have a spiritual affliction”)

Tucker said when her son “has these breakdowns, the one thing that is foremost in his mind, his religion, is the thing he takes it out on.” But Reed does not worship Satan, the mother said. “Anyone who knows Michael, knows he loves his God. Right now, everyone is praying for him.”

Well, mom. I suggest you ask your son who “his God” is.
