Boys are raped by Orthodox Jewish rabbis

The MSM have familiarized us with the terrible pedophilia and pederasty of Catholic clergy — and rightly so.

But little is said or known about the much worse pedophilia by Orthodox Jewish rabbis and other authority figures — pedophilia that is blatant, takes place in public in Jewish bathhouses (mikvah), and has the support of powerful rabbis and the rabbinical court.

Below is an account of what a principled rabbi, Nuchem Rosenberg, discovered and how he was vilified, ostracized, and physically assaulted by his own religious community. According to Rosenberg and others, more than half of young boys in Brooklyn, New York’s Hasidic (Orthodox Jew) community are sexually abused by male authority figures, including rabbis, school teachers, and even their fathers.

Warning: Graphic language

Christopher Ketcham, “The Child-Rape Assembly Line,” Vice, Nov. 11, 2013:

Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg—who is 63 with a long, graying beard—recently sat down with me to explain what he described as a “child-rape assembly line” among sects of fundamentalist Jews. He cleared his throat. “I’m going to be graphic,” he said.

A member of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim fundamentalist branch of Orthodox Judaism, Nuchem designs and repairs mikvahs in compliance with Torah Law. The mikvah is a ritual Jewish bathhouse used for purification. Devout Jews are required to cleanse themselves in the mikvah on a variety of occasions: Women must visit following menstruation, and men have to make an appearance before the High Holidays, such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Many of the devout also purify themselves before and after the act of sex and before the Sabbath.

On a visit to Jerusalem in 2005, Rabbi Rosenberg entered into a mikvah in one of the holiest neighborhoods in the city, Mea She’arim. “I opened a door that entered into a schvitz [sauna],” he told me. “Vapors everywhere, I can barely see. My eyes adjust, and I see an old man, my age, long white beard, a holy-looking man, sitting in the vapors. On his lap, facing away from him, is a boy, maybe seven years old. And the old man is having anal sex with this boy.

Rabbi Rosenberg paused, gathered himself, and went on: “This boy was speared on the man like an animal, like a pig, and the boy was saying nothing. But on his face—fear. The old man [looked at me] without any fear, as if this was common practice. He didn’t stop. I was so angry, I confronted him. He removed the boy from his penis, and I took the boy aside. I told this man, ‘It’s a sin before God, a mishkovzucher. What are you doing to this boy’s soul? You’re destroying this boy!’ He had a sponge on a stick to clean his back, and he hit me across the face with it. ‘How dare you interrupt me!’ he said. I had heard of these things for a long time, but now I had seen.”

The child sex abuse crisis in ultra-Orthodox Judaism, like that in the Catholic Church, has produced its share of shocking headlines in recent years. In New York, and in the prominent Orthodox communities of Israel and London, allegations of child molestation and rape have been rampant. The alleged abusers are schoolteachers, rabbis, fathers, uncles—figures of male authority. The victims, like those of Catholic priests, are mostly boys. Rabbi Rosenberg believes around half of young males in Brooklyn’s Hasidic community—the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world—have been victims of sexual assault perpetrated by their elders. Ben Hirsch, director of Survivors for Justice, a Brooklyn organization that advocates for Orthodox sex abuse victims, thinks the real number is higher. “From anecdotal evidence, we’re looking at over 50 percent. It has almost become a rite of passage.”

Ultra-Orthodox Jews who speak out about these abuses are ruined and condemned to exile by their own community. Dr. Amy Neustein, a nonfundamentalist Orthodox Jewish sociologist and editor of Tempest in the Temple: Jewish Communities and Child Sex Scandals, told me the story of a series of Hasidic mothers in Brooklyn she got to know who complained that their children were being preyed on by their husbands.

In these cases, the accused men “very quickly and effectively engage the rabbis, the Orthodox politicians, and powerful Orthodox rabbis who donate handsomely to political clubs.” The goal, she told me, is “to excise the mother from the child’s life.” Rabbinical courts cast the mothers aside, and the effects are permanent. The mother is “amputated.” One woman befriended by Dr. Neustein, a music student at a college outside New York, lost contact with all six of her children, including an infant she was breastfeeding at the time of their separation.

Seven years ago, Rabbi Rosenberg started blogging about sex abuse in his community and opened a New York City hotline to field sex abuse complaints. He has posted appeals on YouTube, appeared on CNN, and given speeches across the US, Canada, Israel, and Australia. Today, he is the lone whistleblower among the Satmar. For this he is reviled, slandered, hated, feared. He receives death threats on a regular basis. In Yiddish and Hebrew newspapers, advertisements taken out by the self-described “great rabbis and rabbinical judges of the city of New York” have denounced him as “a stumbling block for the House of Israel,” “a public rebuker and preacher of ethics” who “persists in his rebelliousness” and whose “voice has been heard among many Jewish families, especially young people in their innocence… drawn to listen to his poisonous and revolting speeches.” Leaflets distributed in Williamsburg and Borough Park, the centers of ultra-Orthodoxy in Brooklyn, display his bearded face over the body of a writhing snake. “Corrupt Informer,” reads one of the leaflets, followed by the declaration that Rabbi Rosenberg’s “name should rot in hell forever. They should cut him off from all four corners of the earth.”

When Rabbi Rosenberg wants to bathe at a mikvah in Brooklyn to purify himself, none will have him. When he wants to go to synagogue, none will have him. “He is finished in the community, butchered,” said a fellow rabbi who would only talk anonymously. “No one will look at him, and those who will talk to him, they can’t let it be known. The pressure in our community, it’s incredible.”

The powerful men—and it is worth noting that this community is regulated by men only—who govern the world of ultra-Orthodox Judaism would rather their adherents be blind in their faith, their eyes closed to the horrors Rabbi Rosenberg is exposing. Like the Catholic establishment, the rabbinate seeks to cover up the crimes, quiet the victims, protect the abusers, and deflect potential criticism of their institutional practices. Those who speak out are vilified, and the faithful learn to shut their mouths. When the father of the seven-year-old boy whom Rabbi Rosenberg rescued from the Jerusalem bathhouse showed up to collect his son, he couldn’t believe his son had been raped. Trembling, terrified, he whisked his son away to get medical help but was still too scared to raise a formal complaint. According to Ben and Survivors for Justice, “The greatest sin is not the abuse, but talking about the abuse. Kids and parents who step forward to complain are crushed.

As for Rabbi Rosenberg, when he voiced his concerns to the rabbinate in Israel, he was brought up on charges by the mishmeres hatznuis, the archconservative Orthodox “modesty squad,” which regulates, often through threats of violence, proper moral conduct and dress in the relations between men and women. The modesty squad is a sort of Jewish Taliban. According to Rabbi Rosenberg, the rapist he caught in the act was a member of the modesty squad, which charged him with the unconscionable offense of having previously been seen walking down a street in Jerusalem with a married woman. “But it’s OK to molest children,” he adds.

The abuse and its cover-up are symptoms of wider political dysfunction—or, more precisely, symptoms of socially disastrous political control by religious elites.

[…] Michael Lesher, a practicing Jew who has investigated Orthodox sex abuse and represented abuse victims […] noted that the infamous Rabbi Elior Chen, convicted in 2010 in what was arguably Israel’s worst case of serial child abuse, is still defended in public statements by leading ultra-Orthodox rabbis. Among other legal and moral crimes, the rabbi forced his victims to eat feces, claiming that this cruelty was necessary to “purify” the children he abused.

Note: In Feb. 2011, Rabbi Elior Chen was sentenced to 24 years in prison for  abusing and ordering the abuse of eight children, which included beatings with clubs and hammers, kicks to the head, severe shaking, burning, being handcuffed and stuffed in a suitcase, food and sleep deprivation, being forced to eat feces, and being forced to stand outside in the cold naked. One of the children remains in a vegetative state to this day due to the abuse. Chen’s followers blindly admired him and obeyed him unquestioningly. Their abuse of the children was at his express command. (Source)

According to Ben, the ultra-Orthodox community has never been as repressive as it is today. The repression, as he describes it, stems from the burden of having too many children. Huge families are encouraged: Every child born to a Hasid is seen as “a finger in the eye of Hitler.” Ben also told me that the average family size among Williamsburg Hasidim is nine, and that some families include more than 15 children.

Families saddled with an increasing number of children soon enter into a cycle of poverty. There is simultaneously an extreme separation of the sexes, which is unprecedented in the history of the Hasidim. There is limited general education, to the point that most men in the community are educated only to the third grade, and receive absolutely no sexual education. No secular newspapers are allowed, and internet access is forbidden. “The men in the community are undereducated by design,” Ben said. “You have a community that has been infantilized. They have been trained not to think. It’s a sort of totalitarian control.”

The rabbis, dominating an ignorant and largely poverty-stricken flock, determine the fate of every individual in the community. Nothing is done without the consent of the rabbinical establishment. A man wants to buy a new car—he goes to the rabbi for counsel. A man wants to marry—the rabbi tells him whether or not he should marry a particular bride. As for the women, they don’t get to ask the rabbi anything. Their place is beneath contempt.

[…] Michael also notes that the problem is not confined to the extremists. “The same patterns of victim-blaming, covering up, idealizing the rabbis so that cover-ups aren’t even acknowledged, are found all across the spectrum of Orthodoxy,” he told me. “The Orthodox left was shamefully slow to react to Rabbi Baruch Lanner‘s abuse or to the similar case of Rabbi Mordechai Elon.” Rabbi Lanner, a former New Jersey yeshiva high school principal, was found guilty in 2000 of sexually abusing dozens of teenage students over the decades of his tenure. Rabbi Elon, who had publicly denounced homosexuality, was convicted last August on two counts of forcible sexual assault on a male minor, following several years of reports of his abuse of young boys.

“I have children come to me with their parents, and the blood is coming out of the anus,” Rabbi Rosenberg told me when we met. “These are zombies for life. What are we to do?”

This of course is the key question, and no answers are forthcoming. Michael holds out little hope that the situation will change. “If Orthodox institutions continue on their current trajectory,” he said, “I’d say things could get worse before they get better.”

A few weeks after our interview, Rabbi Rosenberg was walking through the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn when an unidentified man rushed up behind him, tapped him on the shoulder, and threw a cup of bleach in his face. He went to the hospital with facial burns and was temporarily blinded. Such is the measure of justice among the Satmar that a once-respected rabbi, now amputated from the community, should find himself chemically burned on a street in a neighborhood considered holy.

Later Rabbi Rosenberg told me a story of being surrounded by young boys in Williamsburg. The boys cursed him, laughed at him, threatened him, and spat at him. He wondered how many of them would end up molested.

The child-sex abuses by Catholic priests came to light only because the victims and their families sued the Catholic Church.

But in the case of Orthodox Jews, who will be the litigants? As the article points out, parents who even so much as complain, are punished and ostracized by their “religious” community which, for Hasidics, would mean everyone they know. Until that situation changes, sadly, the rapes of Jewish boys will continue.

Parents pimp 8-year-old boy as drag queen Lactatia

The (Canadian?) parents, Jessica Mélançon and Coriander Golden, of an 8-year-old boy, Nemis, are pimping him as a drag queen named Lactatia.

Lactatia’s parents: Jessica Mélançon and Coriander Golden

“Lactatia”, born Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden, was nowhere to be found online before this year when his parents began a full-on media blitz to turn him into a “social media superstar,” beginning with Lactatia’s participation in a voguing contest at the Werq The World drag show in Montreal, May 27, 2017.

Note: Vogue, or voguing, is a highly stylized “dance’ that originated in the late 1980s from 1960s Harlem, and gained mainstream exposure when it was featured in Madonna’s 1990 song and video “Vogue”. (Wikipedia)

With Internet exposure, the boy is fawned over by homosexual websites and has already achieved “fame” to warrant being written about on Yahoo.

In the video below, a heavily and grotesquely made-up “Lactatia” says he began going drag when he was three. The video began with the boy preaching the satanist motto “Do As Thou Will”:

“I think that anyone can do what they want in life. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. If you want to be drag queen and your parents don’t let you, you need new parents.”

The boys’ parents fashioned a Facebook page, Life of Lactatia, to advertise about “Lactatia”. The “About” page says:

Born fancy.Born to be brave.Born to be a Queen. Born to be…Also, it goes without saying but if you aren’t here to support, get the fuck off!! :)S.H.A.R.P

Life of Lactatia also propagandizes about other children whose fantasies of being homosexuals or “transgenders” are promoted and indulged by their parents, such as Desmond Napoles, who is said to have “come out” as homosexual/transgender the day he was born — a claim that is patently absurd.

Life of Lactatia is also a forum for these disgraceful parents to encourage their kids to go drag and to act out sexually, making “sexy” poses for the camera. In effect, Life of Lactatia is a pedophile bait page.

New York Times: Israeli and other foreign intelligence have the goods on pedophile D.C. politicians

It is said that a major reason why no one in authority would investigate Pizzagate is because many politicians, including those in D.C., are pedophiles, and that they are blackmailed by powerful intelligence groups, domestic and foreign — including Israel’s Mossad — who have “the goods” on their child-sex activities.

But all of that is speculative chatter on the Alt-Media.

Thanks to enterprising Voat netizen DawnKeyhote, we now have none other than the New York Times making that assertion via an Associated Press story. But it’s the NYT of 35 years ago when the Times still conducted actual journalism, not the NYT of today, which dismisses Pizzagate without an investigation, and whose CEO Mark Thompson, in his previous position as director-general of the BBC, had refused to investigate the hundreds of allegations of child sex abuse by British TV personality and notorious pedophile Sir Jimmy Savile.

Below is the AP article in its entirety, “Boy Sex Rings Said to Peddle Client Data to Foreign Agents,” The New York Times, July 27, 1982:

Prostitution rings are providing young boys to male customers in Washington and are reportedly selling information about their clients’ sexual preferences to foreign intelligence services, a private investigator testified yesterday.

The investigator, Dale Smith, who works for the New York State Senate’s Select Committee on Crime, said he had learned that British, Israeli and Soviet agents had bought information from several call services in Washington.

Mr. Smith appeared before the committee at the opening in New York City of a two-day hearing on prostitution among young males and on pornography.

Mr. Smith said that an accountant for five call services had told him about the sale of information to foreign agents. He refused to elaborate on the allegations when questioned by reporters, but the committee counsel, Jeremiah McKenna, said that the information concerned ”government officials.” He declined to be more specific.

”They’re making more money selling information than on the prostitution itself,” Mr. McKenna said. Allegations of homosexual sex and drug use on Capitol Hill among Congressmen, pages and other employees have circulated in Washington recently.

Mr. Smith also said that ”call service operations in Washington have some connection with organized crime in New York.” He described how male prostitutes between the ages of 13 and 16 were shuttled between the cities, and were paid from $50 to $250, with younger boys commanding the most.

Earlier, a Washington detective testified that she had uncovered a six-city prostitution network that used 12-year-old boys and allowed customers to pay for sex with credit cards.

The cities involved are Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, New York, Washington and Houston, said the detective, Anne Fisher of the Washington Metropolitan Police.

”You could call a number in Houston from Washington and have a young boy brought to your room in Washington,” the detective said.

Slippery Slope: 17% of Americans think polygamy is okay

We warned you about the slippery slope, after the Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage in 2015.

Polygamy — having multiple spouses at one time, which President James Garfield once said “offends the moral sense” — was one of the most morally taboo social behaviors in the eyes of Americans.

But a new Gallup poll — the Values and Beliefs poll conducted on May 3-7, 2017 — found that the percentage of U.S. adults who find polygamy morally acceptable has accelerated in recent years.

Gallup began measuring Americans’ moral perceptions of polygamy in 2003. For the first seven years (2003-2010), the rate of U.S. adults who said polygamy was “morally acceptable” was always in the single digits. But beginning in 2010 — the second year of Obama’s first term as POTUS — that percentage began to rise, from 11% in 2011, to 14% in 2016, and to 17% in the latest poll, which is nearly 1 in 5 American adults.

Not surprisingly, religion is a factor in Americans’ attitude toward polygamy:

  • Between 2011 and 2017, 32% of atheists and non-religious (those who do not identify with any religion) said polygamy was “morally acceptable.” This follows the general tendency for those who are less religious to be more liberal on social issues.
  • In contrast, Christians and even Mormons are less likely than the overall sample average to find polygamy morally tolerable:
    • 12% of Mormons
    • 10% of Catholics
    • 9% of Protestants/other Christians
  • Oddly, the Gallup poll makes no mention of another religious group — Jews.

And what accounts for Americans’ increasing acceptance of polygamy? Gallup’s Andrew Dugan attributes it to at least two factors:

  • Television: “Beginning in the mid-2000s, television shows began to feature polygamist characters — though these depictions were not always favorable. The TLC show ‘Sister Wives’ premiered in 2010, and according to The Washington Post, humanized a family of polygamists. The show was successful and remains on the air. Notably, over the time it has been on the air, Gallup has seen support for polygamy rise by nearly 10 percentage points, although it is impossible to establish any direct causality between the show and changing attitudes.”
  • Overall increase in “social liberalism”: “Many of the moral norms that have changed the most in the U.S. over the last few decades are related to sex and marriage — including gay/lesbian relations, divorce and having a baby out of wedlock.” There is still a last bastion that social liberalism hasn’t yet completely penetrated — adultery. Having an extramarital affair remains nearly as morally toxic this year as it was in 2001, with about one in 10 Americans finding it morally acceptable (10% in 2017 and 7% in 2001).

It is downright frightening how malleable the U.S. and any culture is, and how swift the moral erosion.

Already there is a push to “normalize” pedophilia. See:

UK organization pushes to give pedophiles “child sex dolls”

no

Do not feed the beast.

From NY Post: A charity in the UK has sparked outrage by calling for so-called ‘child sex dolls’ to be made available for pedophiles on prescription.

StopSo, which aims to prevent sex offending through therapy, say the dolls could stop perverts harming real children.

But leading charities and police chiefs in the UK  want to criminalize the dolls and say they are more likely to lead to offending.

It is currently illegal to import the dolls under the 1979 Customs and Excise Management Act but ownership in the UK is not against the law.

The National Crime Agency says it has intercepted 123 dolls since March and that the seizures had led them to 120 alleged offenders including seven men who are now facing charges.

Juliet Grayson, chairman of StopSo, told Wales Online: “If someone comes forward and says, ‘I am attracted to young children, and I want help to ensure that I never act on that attraction, so that I never harm a child,’ then maybe society should consider the use of dolls in a carefully regulated way.

“Perhaps a ‘prescription’ for the use of a child sex doll could be given, alongside therapy, mentoring and supervision, could help the individual remain law abiding and fully accountable for their behaviour.”

This carefully regulated use of child sex dolls might be one way to keep children safe. It feels like dangerous territory, but is certainly worthy of consideration.”

“Society needs to reach a point where a teenager can say to his mum, ‘I am a pedophile,’ and she will get him the right kind of help to manage his behaviors in pro-social ways.”

The child-like mannequins have been sold through sites such as Amazon and eBay.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children slammed the suggestion and said child sex dolls risked ‘desensitizing’ offenders.

The NSPCC’s development head, Jon Brown, said: “There is no evidence to support the idea that the use of so-called child sex dolls helps potential abusers from committing contact offences against real children.

“And in fact there is a risk that those using these child sex dolls or realistic props could become desensitized and their behavior becomes normalized to them, so that they go on to harm children themselves, as is often the case with those who view indecent images.”

Hazel Stewart, from the National Crime Agency, said: “We know [child sex doll] purchases can indicate other offences against children, as was the case against Turner who had a sickening stash of abuse images.

“Importers of such obscene items should expect to have law enforcement closing in on them.”

Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan said: “The importation of child sex dolls into the UK is an extremely disturbing new phenomenon and one that needs to be tackled with robust legislation and enforcement. “Barnardo’s specialist workers see first-hand the harm suffered by children who have been sexually groomed, exploited and abused.”

“We are pleased authorities are working together to stamp out this growing problem which should help protect vulnerable children.”

Pedogate arrests: deputy AG, judge, mayor, police & a DuPont heir who raped 3 y.o. daughter

It is said that pedophiles include “pillars of the community” — doctors, lawyers, teachers, priests, ministers, rabbis, government officials, judges, and police — and that a main reason why pedophiles are not apprehended as vigorously as they should be is because law enforcement are among their ranks, a case of asking the fox to guard the hen house.

Recent pedophile arrests — of a deputy attorney general, a judge, a mayor, and police officers — provide evidence for that contention.

(1) California Deputy Attorney General

Liddy is wearing eyeliner and mascara!

The attorney general of a state, including the state of California, is the chief law enforcement officer of that state.

Kelly McLaughlin reports for Daily Mail that on July 25, 2017, California deputy attorney general Raymond Liddy, 53, was placed under house arrest for possession of child pornography and released on $100,000 bond.

Liddy is the son of former FBI agent and lawyer G. Gordon Liddy of the Nixon Watergate conspiracy. G. Gordon had organized and directed the burglary of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in June 1972. A reserve Marine colonel, Raymond Liddy has been a state prosecutor since 2008, and is placed on administrative leave.

An investigation into Liddy was launched after an electronic service provider sent a tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in January that a user had uploaded an image that appeared to be child porn. Raymond Liddy said he used the screen name and other aliases to share sexual fantasies online, most of which were of adults, though it was possible some were of children.

(2) The Judge

WCPO Cincinnati reports that former Campbell County district judge (and member of the county Board of Education) Tim Nolan, 70, already accused of human trafficking, was arrested again on June 6, 2017 and charged with two more counts.

Nolan was previously indicted on one count of human trafficking, one count of first-degree rape, five counts of human trafficking, one count of second-degree unlawful transaction with a minor in the second degree, one count of tampering with a witness, one count of third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor and prostitution, to all of which he pleaded not guilty.

Police said there are 12 victims, including two juveniles, and that the crimes occurred between 2010 and this year. A judge set Nolan’s bond at $750,000.

(3) The Mayor

KTIV4 reports that on July 27, 2017, the mayor of Randolph, Nebraska, 61-year old Dwayne Schutt, was arrested following an investigation that yielded four counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of felony child abuse — of a juvenile over the course of four years beginning when the juvenile was 13 years old.

Schutt, who had been mayor of Randolph since 2011, posted 10% of his $125,000 bond and was released from jail on Friday. He was arraigned on the charges in Cedar County Court on August 2.

(4) 30+ Police Officers Raped Teen Prostitute

The Washington Post reports that in August 2016, ten police officers of Oakland, CA, were charged for raping and exploiting a 17-year-old prostitute, Celeste Guap, with more charges still to come.

Now 19, Guap is seeking $66 million in damages from the city, its police force, its former chief, multiple officers, and also supervisors who “stood by with a blind eye” as the teen became a sex slave for the officers.

Prostituting herself since she was 12, Guap was in the act of running away from a pimp when she met Oakland police officer Brendan O’Brien, 30. According to her lawsuit, instead of helping the 17-year-old, O’Brien and more than 30 other law enforcement officers “continued to traffic, rape, victimize and exploit a teenage girl who needed to be rescued. Instead of helping [the teen] find a way out of exploitation, they furthered and deepened her spiral down into the sex trade.”

O’Brien committed suicide in the midst of a growing internal investigation. A note he left behind named other officers who he said had sex with the teen. The scandal led to the resignation of Oakland’s police chief, as well as the two people appointed to replace him, neither of whom lasted a week. It also led to other firings and suspensions, numerous criminal charges — and an apology from Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. 

According to CBS News, an investigation ordered by a federal judge led to many Oakland police officers admitting they had lied during the first internal affairs investigation about their relationships with Guap. One officer also admitted to knowing she was underage when he had sex with her.

(5) The Heir

While a du Pont family heir is not law enforcement, the case is notable because the man in question raped his 3-year-old daughter and sexually abused his toddler son.

Cris Barish reports for the (Wilmington, Del.) News Journal (via USA Today) that du Pont family heir Robert H. Richards IV, 50, who is supported by a trust fund, pleaded guilty in 2008 to fourth-degree rape of his 3-year-old daughter, but received no prison time.

Richards IV is a scion of two prominent Delaware families — the du Pont family who built the chemical empire and the Richards family who co-founded the prestigious corporate law firm Richards Layton & Finger. Du Pont family patriarch Irenee du Pont is his great grandfather. His father, Robert H. Richards III, was a partner in the law firm until his 2008 retirement.

On March 18, 2014, nearly six years after Richards’ felony conviction for raping his daughter, his ex-wife, Tracy Richards, filed a Superior Court lawsuit on behalf of her children seeking compensatory and punitive damages for Richards IV’s sexual abuse of their toddler son, negligence, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress on his two children.

Tracy’s lawsuit provides in-depth details about Richards IV’s earlier rape of his daughter which Delaware authorities never disclosed publicly and did not receive media attention.

The lawsuit claims that Richards IV raped his daughter, now 11, in 2005 when she was 3. Several times, he entered her bedroom at night while she slept and penetrated her with his fingers while masturbating. Richards IV told the girl “to keep what he had done to her a secret,” but in October 2007 she told her grandmother, who informed Tracy Richards. The girl was taken to her pediatrician, whom she told about the abuse, and New Castle County police arrested him that December.

The office of State Attorney General, the late Beau Biden — son of Obama’s VP Joe Biden, who is himself a pedophile — obtained a grand jury indictment charging Richards IV with two counts of second-degree rape, a Class B felony that carries a mandatory two-year prison term for each conviction.

Utilizing his family’s wealth and position in the community, Richards IV hired prominent Wilmington defense attorney Eugene J. Maurer Jr. and denied the charges. But after volunteering for and failing a polygraph examination, he admitted abusing his child, “then claimed that he was ill and that he needed medical treatment,” the lawsuit said.

In June 2008, he avoided mandatory prison time by pleading guilty to a single count of fourth-degree rape in a deal arranged by Maurer and prosecutor Renee Hrivnak, court records show. Fourth-degree rape is a Class C violent felony that under Delaware law can bring a sentence of up to 15 years in prison, but does not carry a mandatory minimum sentence, although sentencing guidelines used by judges and lawyers call for up to 30 months in prison.

Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden sentenced Richards IV to eight years in prison but suspended that for Level II probation, which requires monthly visits with a case officer, and a fine of $4,395 to the Delaware Violent Crimes Compensation Board.

The lawsuits asserts that, while on probation in April 2010, Roberts also admitted that he sexually abused his son, beginning December 2005, when the boy was 19 months old, and continued for about two years.

The proven abuse of his daughter and alleged assault of his son has caused his children “long-term injuries,” the lawsuit filed Tuesday said, perhaps including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, sexual dysfunction and shame. His daughter also has “repressed memories of some instances of the abuse she suffered.”

John McCain’s foundation is funded by Saudis, Rothschilds & Soros

Sen. John McCain (RINO-AZ) has an eponymous foundation, the McCain Institute for International Leadership, that is less known and much smaller in scale, but rivals the Clinton Foundation in corruption.

Note: Don’t confuse the McCain Institute with either:

  • The philanthropic John and Cindy McCain Family Foundation that, according to NonProfitFacts.com, claimed a paltry $1,002 in income and $6,013 in assets in 2013; or
  • The McCain Foundation, which has nothing to do with John McCain, but was founded by McCain Foods.

The Institute describes itself as a tax-exempt non-profit and “non-partisan do-tank dedicated to advancing character-driven global leadership based on security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity – in the United States and around the world.”

Reporting for The Daily Caller on June 19, 2017, Richard Pollock writes that the  Institute began with $9 million left over from McCain’s failed 2008 presidential campaign, and has become a huge operation, featuring upwards of 80 people including dozens of full time staff and board members. Associated with Arizona State University, the McCain Institute has assets valued at $8.1 million.

According to Pollock:

“Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive ‘Sedona Forum’ bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.”

So who exactly are McCain Institute donors?

(1) Saudi Arabia

A WikiLeaks tweet says the McCain Institute is funded by the Saudis:

wikileaks-tweet-on-mccain-instituteThe WikiLeaks tweet is corroborated by a Bloomberg report in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly. (See “McCain cuts off questions about Saudi donation“)

Baxter Dmitry of YourNewsWire observes that the secretive $1 million donation from Saudi Arabia “looks suspiciously like a Clinton Foundation style pay-for-play ‘donation'” and explains why Sen. McCain has “certain ‘viewpoints’ about the Middle East, and keeps making secret trips to Syria.” Saudi Arabia, as well as Israel, are adamantly opposed to Syria’s Assad government and seek its overthrow by “rebels” who include Al Qaeda jihidasts.

More than that, according to the censored 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission’s report, the Saudi government was involved in the 9/11 attack. John F Lehman, a Republican member of the 9/11 commission, said:

“There was an awful lot of participation by Saudi individuals in supporting the hijackers, and some of those people worked in the Saudi government. Our report should never have been read as an exoneration of Saudi Arabia.”

See “Congress releases classified 28 pages of 9/11 Report: It’s Saudi Arabia”.

But John McCain took $1 million donations from the very same Saudi government.

(2) The Rothschilds

According to the above-referenced WikiLeaks tweet as well as the McCain Institute’s staff members page, Lynn Forester de Rothschild — a buddy of the Clintons — is a trustee of the McCain Institute.

The involvement of the Rothschilds goes beyond Lynn being an institute trustee.

John McCain has been accused of accepting improper campaign donations from the Rothschilds. U.S. political campaigns are forbidden from accepting contributions from foreign nationals.

According to the nonpartisan citizens’ watchdog group Judicial Watch (via The Guardian), in 2008 John McCain violated election laws by accepting campaign contributions from two non-U.S. nationals.

At issue is a fundraising luncheon held in March at London’s Spencer House during McCain’s swing through the United Kingdom. An invitation to the event lists Lord Rothschild and Nathaniel Rothschild as hosts, and indicates the event was made possible with their “kind permission”. Tickets to the luncheon cost $1,000 to $2,300.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said: “The question is whether or not the Rothschilds paid for the event, the venue, the catering, or any other related costs.”

(3) George Soros & Clinton Crony

According to Richard Pollock of The Daily Caller, the McCain Institute has also “accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros” and from Teneo, a for-profit “global strategies” company founded by a Clinton crony named Doug Band, who was Bill Clinton’s “bag man”. As Pollock puts it, “Teneo has long helped enrich [Bill] Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals.”

Pollock says McCain and Soros became friends after the senator was exposed as a member of the “Keating Five” in the savings and loan (S&L) industry scandal that erupted during George H.W. Bush’s administration. As the S&L bank chairman, Charles Keating had paid $1.3 million to bribe five members of Congress, including McCain, to interfere with government regulators on behalf of the savings bank.

The experience so scarred McCain that he became a vigorous advocate of campaign finance reform and in the process reportedly became friends with Soros — the thoroughly evil funder of black riots here in the United States (see “List of persons/groups paid by Soros to protest in Ferguson & Selma“), and of the Muslim invasion in Europe (see “Soros aids invasion of Christian Europe by Muslim refugees, says Hungary prime minister”).

(4) Moroccan Government

According to Pollock, the McCain Institute has also taken at least $100,000 in “donations” from OCP, S.A., a Moroccan state-owned phosphate company operating in Western Sahara which repeatedly has been accused of worker abuse and exploitation.

Morocco seized Western Sahara in 1975 and has since occupied the region by force in defiance of U.N. resolutions and legal declarations by other international bodies. Human rights groups, including the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice, say Morocco’s state-owned companies, including OCP, subject its workforce to gruesome conditions while exploiting Western Sahara’s natural resources, especially phosphate, Morocco’s “white gold” that is used to make fertilizer. The Western Sahara holds half of the world’s phosphate reserves.

The King of Morocco was also a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary Clinton personally accepted $12 million from the King in return for holding a CGI (the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative) regional meeting in Morocco. OCP, the Moroccan state-owned phosphate company that “donated” $100,000 to the McCain Institute, was a major sponsor of the CGI meeting, and Bill Clinton was the featured speaker.

McCain has lavished effusive praise on the King of Morocco, saying in 2011, that the country was a “positive example to governments across the Middle East and North Africa.”

(5) Pro-Iran Foundation

Pollock reports that the McCain Institute has also accepted at least $100,000 from the pro-Iranian Pivotal Foundation, founded by Francis Najafi who owns the private equity and real estate firm Pivotal Group.

The Pivotal Foundation has in the last three years given $205,000 to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), which has been a vocal advocate for the Iranian nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated. The NIAC describes itself as “a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening the voice of Iranian Americans and promoting greater understanding between the American and Iranian people.” In other words, the NIAC act as Iran’s lobbyists in Washington, although it has neither registered as a lobbyist with Congress, nor filed as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

Indeed, NIAC President Trita Parsi has long been an advocate a lobbyist for Iran:

  • In May 2013, Parsi spoke to a packed Capitol Hill meeting sponsored by Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison to argue in favor of the nuclear deal. Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress and is also deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
  • As recently as May 2017, Parsi demanded that President Donald Trump and officials in his administration “cease questioning the integrity of” the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Sen. McCain’s involvement with Iran lobbyist NIAC is troublesome:

  • Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist at Public Citizen, said: “This is a very real conflict of interest. This is the similar type of pattern we received with the Clinton Foundation in which foreign governments and foreign interests were throwing a lot of money in the hopes of trying to buy influence.”
  • Lawrence Noble, general counsel for the Campaign Legal Center, said that accepting contributions in the name of a sitting senator like McCain raises troubling issues: “In terms of the ethics of it, it does raise a broad question of people trying to get good will with the elected official. From a personal standpoint, I’d rather not see these entities exist.”
  • Charles Ortel, a retired Wall Street investment banker and philanthropy law expert, said that “high government officials such as John McCain, [former Secretary of State] Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama should not get involved with vehicles like these where substantial sums can be funneled over time in ways that at best, reeks of impropriety and at worse are public corruption.”

Pollock says the McCain Institute did not respond to requests for the dollar amounts of its high donors, when the donations were made and if there were strings attached to the contributions, claiming it did not have any of the information.

For his part, Sen. McCain professed he has no involvement with his own institute that is named after him, saying “I’m proud that the institute is named after me, but I have nothing to do with it” — which stretches credulity.

The institute’s donations from governments like Saudi Arabia and Morocco raise legitimate questions of pay-for-play. They also contradict McCain’s vision of human rights and national security.

How the McCain Institute spends its millions also raises questions.

Combating human trafficking is an important program of the Institute. The actor Ashton Kutcher is a member of the Institute’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council.

According to Baxter Dmitry of YourNewsWire, the Institute claims to have donated a total of $2.5 million to stop human trafficking: $500,000 in 2012; $500,000 in 2013; and $1,500,000 in 2014.

The only problem is every penny of the $2.5 million went to the Arizona State University Foundation that “does not appear to have anything whatsoever to do with human trafficking.”
