Homeless people defecating on LA streets fuels horror hepatitis outbreak

skid_row

Great job demorats!

From Fox News: An outbreak of hepatitis A is spreading through Los Angeles County after leaping from a large homeless contingent in San Diego, threatening thousands of people and fueling criticism that local officials have not done enough to contain the deadly liver disease.

Hundreds of cases have turned up in southern California as well as Michigan — but conditions in Los Angeles, where roughly 50,000 people live on the streets, have prompted deeper concerns.

Reports compiled by volunteer organizations have faulted city officials for not providing enough accessible toilets as the homeless population sharply increased by 23 percent this year.

In a prescient warning, a June 2017 report by a collection of nonprofits called the LA Central Providers Collaborative sounded the alarm about crowding and living conditions on Skid Row, citing the city’s own predictions about the increased risk for hepatitis A and other diseases.

“One would think that Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world, would exceed these minimal standards. However, this Audit finds that in Skid Row, Los Angeles fails to meet even the standards for a refugee camp,” the report said. “During overnight hours, there are only nine public toilets available for 1,777 unsheltered homeless people on Skid Row, and these toilets are largely inaccessible.”

The report noted that United Nations’ refugee camp standards are one toilet for every 20 people.

Fast-forward to September, and the county declared an outbreak affecting homeless people and illicit drug users. The disease also is rising among gay and bisexual men, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health noted in a Nov. 2 advisory.

Los Angeles currently has 31 hepatitis cases – 15 among the homeless and 16 gay men.

Toilet access is a chief concern, as the disease can be contracted by ingesting or touching anything contaminated with infected feces. Homeless individuals without bathroom access defecating on the streets spreads the disease. 

Seventeen miles away is the community of Venice, a trendy beachside haven made famous by a young Arnold Schwarzenegger who once lifted weights in a makeshift gym set up along a boardwalk. The homeless liked the area, too, and the population has grown to about 1,000. The area has nine toilet stalls, none which are open at night.

Los Angeles County, meanwhile, has 42,828 homeless living on the streets, which swells to more than 50,000 during the day when many leave overnight shelters. Most are within the city of Los Angeles, which has a total of 2,800 toilets and 800 urinals located in parks that are open during daylight hours.

Movie producer tells man groped by Kevin Spacey: ‘You should be flattered he’s attracted to you’

For decades, Hollywood had turned a blind eye to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s and others’ sexual abuse and rape of women, as well as of children — a scandal that still needs to be broken into the open.

Worse still, the victims are actually told they should be grateful.

That’s what happened to a sound mixer and boom operator named Joshua Chavez in 2012 — he was told by a movie producer to be grateful that actor Kevin Spacey found him attractive enough as to grope his penis.

At the time, Chavez was 26 and Spacey was 53 years old.

Kevin Spacey grabs a young male’s butt

Michael Snyder, the well-known blogger of The End of the American Dream (now renamed The American Dream), has a “very close personal friend” who knows Chavez “extremely well” and helped Chavez to contact Snyder with his story. Snyder writes:

“I am satisfied with the documentation that Chavez provided for this story, and I very much trust the good friend that connected the two of us.”

Below is Joshua Chavez’ account, which Snyder wants us to help get out “to the rest of the world”. The bold emphasis is Chavez’s; the red-color emphasis is mine:

My name is Joshua Chavez and in 2007 I entered into the film industry where I began a lucrative business as a sound mixer. I didn’t start as one; I had to work my way up from a PA, sound utility, boom operator and then mixer. In 2012 I was asked to work for a certain sound mixer on three short films Kevin Spacey and his company trigger street productions was doing as the boom operator. Now a sound mixer is the head of the sound department and the boom operator is just below him and is responsible for picking up every line spoken by the actor or actress with a high-powered microphone. The first short film we worked on was called “The Ventriloquist” which was shot on March 22st and 23nd, the second short film was called “Spirit of a Denture” shot on March 26th and 27th, and then third short we shot was on April 1st and 2nd and that was called “Envelope”.

These three short films were all a part of a contest put on between trigger street productions and Jameson Whiskey called Jameson first shot. Writers from all over the world would send in their scripts for a chance to direct their own script and have it fully funded with Kevin Spacey as the main actor. The first day on set was at the promenade off of Figueroa St. in highland park LA. The first day of principal photography was the same as all the rest of the projects I’d been a part of. It was also uneventful considering what the rest of the days were going to be like working so close with Kevin Spacey. That first day I had met him he didn’t pay much attention to me. That is very normal for an A list actor towards a boom operator. I had introduced myself, put a lav (small hidden mic) on him a couple times and also boomed his scenes. Everything was very normal, nothing out of the ordinary. At that point in time, I had no idea Kevin was gay or attracted to me.

Day two was a whole different story though; the moment he got to set he began his relentless pursuit for me. I was sitting next to craft service (a table filled with all the snacks you could possibly imagine) and I noticed him pull up in a vehicle, get out, notice me and walk straight for me. I wasn’t sure he was looking at me or walking towards me for that matter but he was, he literally walked past every person on set, put out his hand in my direct and shook my hand with a big smile on his face and said “good morning Joshua, its good to see you back today” I was shocked and really confused. Kevin Spacey walked past every person on set to come say good morning to me, and he remembered my name… WHAT?! I didn’t realize his intentions at the moment so I felt really special, something like that had never happened to me before. The rest of the day was also normal, but Kevin would speak to me every now and then and he also sat down and had lunch with my sound mixer and myself.

The end of the first project had passed and the second short film was now underway, “Spirit of Denture”. The location we were filming at was called Soler Dental off of Los Feliz Blvd. in Los Angeles. It was a small dental office, which meant we were all in very close proximity to each other. One of the scenes in the dental office was Kevin’s character a Dentist with an active imagination looking out of his sliding glass window through binoculars. Now since the space was very small, and the cameras were behind him, I had to stand on a counter table that lined the wall right next to the sliding glass door. It was the only spot I could be in to properly get his lines without my reflection being seen by the cameras in the sliding glass door Kevin was standing in front of. There are many takes in order to get one scene and during this scene was when all of the real sexual assaults began to happen and from then on after. My first encounter with him during this scene was when the director yelled cut. I dropped my boom from over my head and sat down on the counter to rest while the camera changed some lenses for the next shot. Kevin was directly in front of me; he turned to me and asked me what I thought about his acting during that scene.

It was actually a funny question because why would my opinion matter to an A list actor. Regardless I politely answered the question “Yes, it was a good scene” and smiled, he then said “thank you” and lightly put his hand on my thigh. It was so quick and light that it didn’t really sound any alarms, however I didn’t feel comfortable with it. Since I was sitting on the counter and he was standing up, my thigh was about waist height to him. So I kind of ignored it and continued on. Well that was not the end of it, at the end of the next shot, he turned to me again and asked me the same question again, I replied the same, I mean it’s not like I was going say “Kevin, that was actually horrible… you need to stop acting and become a mime”! No, I’d be fired on the spot!

So I said it was great, he smiled again and then put his hand back onto my thigh, but this time it was for a very long period of time. It was so long that I started to move my thigh in hope he would take it off. He smiled and turned away. Now that time about every fiber in my body was screaming… that was not normal and there is something horribly wrong! Well the third time it happened yet again but this time he grabbed my upper thigh, took his pinky and rubbed my junk. “Woe, I am not comfortable with that, sorry but I’m not attracted to men.” He took his hand off my upper thigh as if what I said didn’t even phase him, smiled at me and walked away. I was absolutely dumbfounded and shocked. I remember immediately going back to the mixer who I was working with and told him what had happened; he was surprised but shrugged it off.

To be completely honest and transparent I shrugged it off as well. I told him I wasn’t into guys and I figured he got the hint but he didn’t, if anything it made me an even larger target for him. I had many encounters with him after that and each one made me more and more uncomfortable. Other individuals began to notice it on set, including the 2nd AD Shelly West who made comments on his actions in an email afterward and again just recently explaining in detail what she noticed on set. In an attempt to let production know these things were happening to me, I told one of the producers about the sexual assaults I was receiving from Kevin and the over all response was “you should be flattered Kevin Spacey is attracted to you”.

This is the thing, they all had the same worry and fear I had, being fired or blacklisted from the industry for being a problem on set. It was Kevin Spacey’s Production Company, and he was the main actor. The reason why I’m even telling my story right now is because people need to know these aren’t just allegations towards him, they aren’t made up, and it’s happened to probably hundreds maybe even thousands of young men on set. Human Resources is not a department on the call sheet, and pretty much every person there is self employed and contracted out for just that gig. During each production, if you are nice, work hard, don’t cause problems and know what you are doing, you’ll be rehired by someone that goes on to another project; tainting your name on set will put you on unemployment. So the sexual advances went on and on for the duration of the projects. There was one instance where I was sitting in a chair on set waiting for the next scene to be set up, Kevin walked past me, stopped and asked me what I was doing after wrap that night? He then proceeded to ask me if I wanted to go and get high with him at his house, just the two of us. With an uncomfortable laugh I said “you’re funny” pretending he was joking and walked away. I was once putting a lav on him for a scene and while I was doing it, he began to sexually rub my shoulders and preceded to tell me I have beautiful eyes.

The list goes on and on. After I finished those projects I didn’t feel like it affected me all that much, however in the past five years, I’ve told probably a hundred of people my encounter with him. I’ve never watched a single project that he’s been in since. I refused to watch house of cards because I didn’t want to support him. I guess I didn’t quite realize the scarring I received from him until my girl at the time pointed out I talked about it a lot.

Looking back, I should have done something about it, came out with it publicly or sued him in hopes he wouldn’t do it to someone else. One thing I would like to say is, Kevin I forgive you for what you did to me all those years back, but you have to stop what you’re doing and repent. If it scarred a guy that’s 26 like I was and me not even know it, what do you think it has done to all the little boys you’ve done it to. You have to repent for your sins and look to Jesus for change because you may not pay for what you’ve done in this life, but you sure will in front of the white throne judgment with a packed court house of witnesses coming against you.

In conclusion, my story is just one of many who have been assaulted by him, I’ve encountered guys that have had far worse experiences with him than myself. This stuff has to stop, power is being used for control and evil desires. We all need to speak up as soon as it happens, I did not do the right thing and stand up for myself. I was weak minded at the time and it took a news story about a 14 year old boy and Jesus for me to say enough is enough. I urge every single person in the industry to come out with your story, and bring hard evidence against him or her. What ever it takes to bring mere allegations into hard facts! Some of you have text messages, emails, video’s, eye witnesses, come out with them and bring a total stop to this gross abuse of power and control.

“Throuple” of two homosexual men and one woman live together and want to adopt children

new york throuple

One happy “throuple”

Someone needs to inform the woman in this “throuple” about the medical consequences she may face by having sexual relations with homosexual men as well as the medical consequences the men bring upon themselves.

From Daily Mail: A ‘throuple’ of two married men and a woman are thinking of adopting children together.

Chris, 38 and Matt Brandt, 28, from New York, have been together for eight years. Two years ago they invited Cait Earnest, 28, into their relationship after meeting her on a dating app.

Chris, who is bisexual, said he suggested to Matt that they involve a woman because he had never had any sexual experiences with them. He said Matt was against the idea at first but soon decided to try it and the couple met Cait.

The trio now live together in a one bedroom apartment and say their relationship is better than ever before – despite disputes about who sleeps where in the bed. Even Matt’s grandfather has welcomed the unusual relationship and often asks when they are going to adopt a child.

Cait told The Sun: ‘When we meet somebody at a bar I will usually say “hi, I’m Cait and these are my two boyfriends.” People often ask if I’m joking.’

Talking about the ‘throuple’s’ sex life, she said: ‘I had never been with two people at the same time before. It’s different strokes for different folks but I would say it’s a pretty fun sex life.’

Cait and Chris say they are bisexual while Matt defines himself as homoflexible, meaning he prefers men but is open to women. He said: ‘I guess I had an awakening after I had a sexual experience with a woman. It is just another body, another soul, a connection that I can have.

Cait, who officiated her boyfriends’ wedding, said she was jealous at first because she liked Chris more than Matt and was frustrated that she would have to share him with Matt. Matt said he was also jealous of Cait because he thought Chris would love him more than her, but both said they soon came to terms with their place in the relationship.

The ‘throuple’ say they are thinking about having children in the future and believe any child would be ‘lucky’ to have three parents.  But Matt said they are happy with their two dogs for now.

Santa is black and has a white husband

Nothing is sacred or off limits to the Left’s remake in their perverse self-image.

Now, it’s Santa Claus.

Brian Murphy reports for the Miami Herald, March 29, 2017, that Daniel Kibblesmith, a staff writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, is the author of a supposedly “parody” picture book, Santa’s Husband, which depicts Santa Claus as a black homosexual married to a white guy who often fills in for Santa at the mall.

Kibblesmith said on Twitter that Santa’s husband is Jewish.

The book was published in October by Harper Design, just in time for Christmas.

According to the book’s page on Amazon, Santa’s Husband is targeted at children ages 4 to 8, from preschool to third grade.

Sexgate fallout: Jeffrey Tambor leaves “Transparent” after sexual harassment allegations

jeffrey tambor

Innocent man Jeffrey, as Maura, quitting his role to due a “politicized” atmosphere

If the claims are untrue, then why is he quitting his award-winning gig? Innocent people with the monetary resources would fight an ugly lie.

Won’t affect me at all though; I have no use for this Amazon show.

From TMZ: Jeffrey Tambor is quitting the show “Transparent” — which he starred in as the lead role for years (as a transgender character) — after sexual harassment allegations were made against him.

Tambor released a statement to Deadline Sunday saying playing the transgender character, Maura Pfefferman, had been an honor … but that the show clearly isn’t what he signed up for four years ago.

He added … “I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.

As we reported … Tambor faced at least 2 allegations of sexual harassment that we know of. He was recently accused by a transgender co-star of making lewd, sexually suggestive remarks … and even allegedly pressing up against her in a suggestive manner. 

Tambor denied those allegations, as well as the ones made against him by a former assistant on the show. Still, Amazon launched an investigation into the matter … even though they were considering writing him out the show before all this.

Looks like he beat ’em to it.

Sexgate: George ‘Mr. Sulu’ Takei, accused of sexual assault, blames the Russians

Several days ago, the Weinstein Effect hit actor George Takei, best known for his role as Mr. Sulu in the Star Trek TV series, when Scott R. Brunton, a former model and actor, accused Takei of sexually assaulting him in 1981 when Brunton was 23 and Takei was 44 years old.

Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter that what prompted him to speak out after so many years is Takei’s hypocrisy. After actor Kevin Spacey was accused by Anthony Rapp of sexual assault, Takei went on the sanctimonious soapbox, slamming Spacey for misusing his power as “the older, dominant one” to harass and assault the younger Rapp ” in a non-consensual situation” — which was exactly what Takei had done to Brunton.

The reaction to Brunton’s accusation of Takei was swift.

(Former) fans of Takei excoriated him on his Facebook page. Takei’s reaction was twofold:

  1. Denial that he’d assaulted Brunton.
  2. Blaming the Facebook blowback on the Democrats’ boogeyman — the Russians. He tweeted:

The only problem with Takei denying having sexually assaulting Brunton is that just last month on the Howard Stern radio show, 80-year-old Takei had bragged about just that — grabbing men’s genitals in a non-consensual situation.

In the radio interview, Howard and his assistant Robin Quivers jokingly asked Takei if he’s ever grabbed someone’s penis. Takei was silent. Stern persisted and asked if Takei has ever sexually harassed anyone. Takei answered:

“[Laughs] Some people that are kind of, um, skittish, or maybe afraid, and you’re trying to persuade.”

Quivers asked if the grabbing happened at work, to which Takei replied it wasn’t, and that it took place “in my home.” Stern asked if Takei’s method was to give a guy who’s hesitant about having sex a “gentle squeeze” on the testicles. Takei answered:

“More than gentle.”

Takei insisted that his grabbing another man’s genitals isn’t wrong because it’s just about sex and not about power. But then he contradicted himself by bragging that he’d forced an extra on the set of Star Trek to give him a “blow job”.

What an utterly repellent, revolting creep.

More lib speak: Eton college head says their young men need to be more “gender intelligent”

gender

That modern intelligence might be challenged in biology class.

From The Guardian: Pupils at Eton College need to be more “gender-intelligent” according to the headmaster, who indicated that any student at the all-male boarding school wishing to transition genders would be allowed to stay.

Simon Henderson, who took over the elite public school in 2015, told the Guardian that efforts to prepare its pupils for the modern world now included LGBT-awareness education and talks by the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, Laura Bates.

“I’m very keen that we are very aware that as an all-boys school there’s a responsibility for young men to be gender-intelligent,” he said.

Asked whether this extended to accepting transgender students at the £38,000-a-year school, Henderson said: “With any pastoral situation, we would support them in the best way we thought was appropriate for their particular circumstances.”

Eton College, which was founded by Henry VI in 1440, has educated the sons of the rich and powerful for more than five centuries, including 19 British prime ministers. Unlike many other schools, Eton has not yet been required to accommodate a transgender pupil,” Henderson said. “We have not been faced with that particular situation. Conceivably they would stay if it was felt to be the right thing for them.”

With growing transgender awareness among young people, schools across the country have been trying to adapt, among them Brighton College, an independent co-educational day and boarding school, which has scrapped distinctions between girls’ and boys’ uniforms. Single sex schools have also successfully dealt with young people transitioning.

Arguably, Eton – with its tailcoats, boarding houses and idiosyncratic traditions – may find it harder than others to adapt. In addition to the 1,300-strong all-male student body, just 20 of the 180 teaching staff are women and there are no plans to admit girls.

To that end, Henderson is trying to build more meaningful links with girls’ schools. He wants to increase the number of female teachers, as well as ethnic diversity, and he emphasises the broad diversity of visiting speakers, among them an Old Etonian whose subject was coming out as gay while a pupil at the college.

Read the whole story here.

In closing, Henderson argues that Eton may appear unaltered with its old-fashioned uniforms, quirky games and bizarre lexicon, but underneath the surface it is changing inexorably. Like any other school, Eton has to deal with the modern challenges of drugs, social media and mental health difficulties.

“I want us to be a modern, forward-thinking, relevant school,” he said. “Eton has always subtly reinvented itself. But you have moments in an institution – and this is one of those moments – when it has to take a step forward.”
