A Very Special Award

I want to present this award to The HuffPost, The Atlantic, all the other biased, ignorant Lemming Media, The Dallas Morning News, and all you Socialist loving Lemmings out there.

Nothing Is Free In This World

This is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and I had neglected to put it on my calendar.  Being in quarantine was no excuse, I should have plenty of time, however, here I was a week late and counting…

This won’t take long at all, just let the search engines do the work.  Hummmm, that’s odd.. I need to slow down, OK, now it’s spelled right… what now, a dropped connection?

My search results were being filtered!

Finally I looked, and there was the article I was looking for from Washington DC.  No, it’s dated 2019, and so it went for 2 more attempts, until it broke free from the fake and filtered news, and was displayed before me.  But no graphic.

Now this should be easy, a picture of our President should be child’s play.  If one of my children or grandchildren had been there, the HUFFPOST would never have forgotten the email they would have received.   The dirty, vile, evil things I saw posted about our President, The President of these United States of America, and it made my blood boil.

These people are as ignorant and stupid as the idiots over at The Atlantic, and I just thought we had some real biased duds down here in Dallas at The Morning News.

SO, this explains at least a part of what is wrong with all these blind Lemmings around us, they are running for the sea so fast that their heads are stuck where the sun don’t shine in the Lemming ahead of them.

At this time I want to present this award to The HuffPost, The Atlantic, all the other biased, ignorant Lemming Media, The Dallas Morning News, and all you Socialist loving Lemmings out there.

Just so you all know, I was going to name this post “The Emporer’s New Clothes Part 2” but if I were to rename it, the name would be “The Anti-American Lemming Leader’s Legacy”.

You all have been in the middle of a STD/STI Pandemic that has been out of control for quiet a few years.

Adolescents are disproportionately affected by STIs and STDs.  Young people ages 15 to 24 represent 25 percent of the sexually active population, but acquire half of all new STIs and STDs.

  • This year alone, 10,000,000 young people, 13 years-of-age to 23, will contract one (1) or more STI or STD.
  • 35 percent of teens ages 14 to 19 have Human papillomavirus (HPV).
  • Girls age 15 to 19 have the highest rates of Gonorrhea and the second highest rate of Chlamydia of any age group.

CPS Still Pimping Children To Sex Traffickers 

This is the Senate Homeland and Governmental Affairs investigations subcommittee, on January 28, 2016, questioning HHS/CPS after their 6 months investigation.  The link everyone was given stated “The congressional hearing cited the AP report that found more than two dozen unaccompanied children were sent to homes across the country where they were sexually assaulted…”

The problem was that the link was filtered, so the American People would NOT find out the truth.  Not one site found out the TRUTH until Google did their job as every one should have done from the start.  Google informed us that the link we all used was now a DEAD LINK.

By this time, the 2 genuine links was wide open, as you will see for yourself, as my site’s update post is not included, so everyone of WE THE PEOPLE can see the Washington Times link, which was used to update my post, and everyone else that chose to update the fake article with the genuine one with the correct numbers.

So, in effect, the lies we were fed about two (2) dozen immigrant children being turned over to traffickers, IN TRUTH turned out to be 90,000 immigrant children was turned over to traffickers, and even though nameless people have stated that every child was found and returned to their families, TO DATE, NOT 1 CHILD’S NAME HAS EVER BEEN SHOWN AS EVIDENCE TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS LIE, EVIDENCE BEING IN THE FORM OF A VERIFIABLE ICE OR BORDER PATROL LIST OF IMMIGRANTS FROM THIS DATE.

This is the article so you can see it in print yourselves:

Obama administration delivered illegal immigrant children to predators, lawmakers say

January 28, 2016
The Obama administration sent illegal immigrant children into “modern-day slavery” by turning them over to sponsors who forced them into child labor or subjected them to sexual abuse, members of Congress said Thursday as they demanded that top child protection officials explain how it could have happened.

Worse yet, the administration acknowledged that it can’t account for each of the 90,000 children it processed and released since the surge peaked in 2014.

8-Year-Old Girls Now Given Testosterone Through ‘Government Funded Research’

Not long ago, conservatives warned that liberals would try pushing their transgender agenda on children — and now the United States government is funding it.

Our Liberal Officials are responsible for taking the rights of normal Children away, while at the same time they now allow self-gratifying “people” to give very young Children puberty blockers, and never file Felony Child Abuse on them.

This year alone, 10,000,000 Young People, 13 years of age to 23 years of age will contract at least one (1) or more STI or STD.

We now have 35 known STDs.  In 1960, we only had two.

Teenagers make up one-third of the U.S. population, but they carry 50 percent of STDs.

One in four teens has an STD.  (Over 80% of those infections have no symptoms, so they can go undetected, which is dangerous for the teen, their future sexual partners and their future children.)

From 1999-2014, the suicide rate in girls age 10 to 14 tripled.

The 6 months following an abortion, high school females were 10 times more likely to commit suicide than other females.

As STDs have become an epidemic in teens, so has depression.

Two To Ten Years For Murdering A Born Alive?

Texas House approves bill penalizing
doctors who fail to care for infants born
after abortions

I hope no one reading this is easily deceived, contrary to what Democratic Rep. Donna Howard (who has a background as a nurse) says here, far too many members of the medical community takes it upon themselves to pick and choose who will live and who will die, and quiet obviously the oath these people once took has faded into a Hypocrite’s Oath.
Robert StrongBow

AUSTIN, TX  –  After a tense moment, Texas House members gave preliminary approval to legislation imposing a six-figure fine and possible prison time on any physician who fails to care for an infant born alive after an abortion.

The bill, from Rep. Jeff Leach of Plano, prevailed Tuesday evening after Austin Democratic Rep. Donna Howard stressed that there’s no record of post-abortion births in Texas and infanticide is already illegal.

Members divided mostly along party lines, by 93-1, to advance the “Born Alive” act, which also would impose prison time in cases of gross negligence.

But 12 Democrats, including Dallas Rep. John Turner and others mostly from Catholic-rich South Texas, joined all but two Republicans in voting for the measure. GOP Rep. Sarah Davis of Houston, filling in at the time for House Speaker Dennis Bonnen, was marked “PC,” presiding chair.  Bonnen didn’t vote, as is common practice by a speaker.

Houston Democrat Harold Dutton cast the “no” vote while 50 Democrats voted “present, not voting” at the urging of Howard, who criticized the “blatantly false, inflammatory and dangerous” proposal as a political box to be checked on legislative scorecards kept by influential GOP groups.  They included Rep. Victoria Neave, D-Dallas, who was earlier part of a brief March boycott of the Leach-led committee hearing on the proposal.

Turner said after the vote that he didn’t view the bill as being about reproductive rights.  It “addresses an extremely rare circumstance,” he said.  Turner said while running for office last fall that he would not vote for any legislation that would further restrict abortion access.

Texas is one of 26 states with laws requiring physicians to provide medical care and treatment to born-alive infants at any stage of development, according to Americans United for Life.  But Leach told colleagues his measure adds a vital enforcement element.

Leach said enforcement “teeth” still are needed.

“It’s a good strong law,” he said.  “But I don’t believe that it goes far enough.”
Leach said House members had an opportunity to unite across party lines “and as much as the issue of abortion has historically divided this country, this state and even this body at times, to me there should be no debate on this issue.”

Howard, the sole Democrat to engage with Leach before the vote, responded that Leach’s proposal didn’t merit debate.

She said the proposal is likely to further stigmatize women’s health decisions while imposing more trauma for families faced with the tragedy of a fetus with severe abnormalities.

“To debate this bill or to try to amend it would legitimize its false narrative,” Howard said.  “The misinformation perpetuated by this bill is dangerous and is the exact type of rhetoric that leads to threats against providers.  We refuse to waste the limited time that we have here to take care of the people’s business by entertaining malicious and purely political attacks against women and doctor.”

Noting her background as a nurse, Howard told the House: “I am insulted. I am insulted by the implication that I or any other nurse or doctor … would not do any and every thing in our power to provide care to any medically stressed human being.”  She added that no legislator, “not one,” supports infanticide.

Leach said he wouldn’t try to refute Howard’s individual critiques.

“This legislation is about protecting innocent life, a baby who is born alive,” he said before calling for the vote.

Passage likely

Passage of a “Born Alive” proposal into law — among three abortion-related priorities declared by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick — seems likely under GOP Gov. Greg Abbott.  A Senate-approved version differs only in its penalties.

Nationally, anti-abortion advocates have noted mild momentum for such measures. Bills have gained ground but not yet passed into law this year in Missouri, Montana and North Carolina partly in reaction to events in New York and Virginia–states mentioned by Leach–and a stymied Republican move in Congress.

Well before Tuesday’s vote, nearly every one of the House’s 83 Republicans had signed on to Leach’s legislation.  Sitting out: Rep. Tom Craddick of Midland, the former House speaker, who said he rarely co-sponsors bills, and Davis, who has advocated for abortion rights.  Speaker Bonnen also wasn’t a co-sponsor though his brother, Friendswood Rep. Greg Bonnen, was among four joint authors.

Under the House plan, the state attorney general could sue a physician who fails to treat a live infant to recover a fine of at least $100,000.  Leach’s bill also permits a third-degree felony charge, potentially leading to imprisonment for two years to 10 years, if a doctor shows “gross negligence.”  The Senate-passed “Born Alive” measure calls for the same fine and a third-degree felony charge without requiring a determination of gross negligence.  Neither proposal would penalize patients.

No Texas infants born alive?

According to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, there were no reports of infants born alive in the state after abortion procedures from 2013 through 2016, the latest year of available figures.  Over the four years, more than 219,000 abortions were provided in the state, the agency says.

However, government-collected figures suggest that 25 babies were born alive during abortion procedures in 2017 in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research arm of the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List.

Established Texas laws

Lawmakers in 1979 revised state law to give a child born alive after an abortion or premature birth the rights of a child born after a normal gestation.  Later, the 1995 Legislature, under Gov. George W. Bush’s signature, gave rights to any person born alive.  As president, Bush in 2002 signed into law a measure similarly stating: “A living human child born alive after an abortion or premature birth is entitled to the same rights, powers, and privileges as are granted by the laws of this state to any other child born alive after the normal gestation period.”

Before the House action, Drucilla Tigner, a strategist for the Texas ACLU, told a House panel chaired by Leach that his “Born Alive” measure isn’t needed because state and federal laws already outlaw murder, protecting people regardless of age. Lawmakers passing the legislation, Tigner said in an email, “would at best be redundant and at worst it will distort public perception of safe, legal abortion care and unfairly target those who provide it in order to restrict access.”

Among objectors, Austin physician Karen Swenson, speaking on behalf of the Texas chapter of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said in written testimony that the idea “that physicians deliver, and then kill or neglect treating, a viable fetus is unfounded and dangerous misinformation.”

Leach and other committee members also heard testimony by three women who each said she was born after an abortion procedure — one of whom said she was born during the botched abortion.  Leach introduced one of them to House members.  Claire Culwell of Pflugerville was in the House gallery.

A national spark

In January, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed into law a proposal described by abortion rights advocates as aligning state law with what federal courts have permitted since the Supreme Court legalized a woman’s right to choose an abortion in 1973.  The revised law permits an abortion at any stage of pregnancy if there is an absence of fetal viability.  Previously, women in New York could only get abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy if their lives were threatened, the fact-checking PolitiFact project reported.

In Virginia, legislators took testimony on a proposal to remove abortion-related restrictions, including a requirement that three physicians sign off on an abortion in the third trimester.  Elizabeth Nash of the non-partisan Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights, said in an email that the Virginia bill would newly have enabled a single physician to determine an abortion is necessary to protect the woman’s life or if there’s a severe health condition.

Nash wrote: “The New York bill was really about changing their law to match up with U.S. Supreme Court decisions.  And the Virginia law was about getting care to patients in pretty serious situations a little faster since you wouldn’t have to track down two other physicians.  The political firestorm around these efforts is a far cry from the actual measures, and it’s really about manufacturing outrage over abortion generally,” Nash commented.

Meantime, conservatives in the U.S. Senate in February tried to pass legislation threatening prison for doctors failing to save infants born alive after abortion procedures.  Democrats blocked the measure, the Associated Press then reported.

Pizza Gate 2: Liberals Empower Deviates To Victimize Pizzas

Too Far: 8-Year-Old Girls Now Given
Testosterone Through ‘Government Funded Research’

A research grant from the National Institutes of Health is funding research into the impact of “early medical treatment” in “transgender” children as young as 8 years old.

Endocrinologist Dr. Michael Laidlaw talked about the devastating effects of hormone therapy on “transgender children” at a panel for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, last Thursday.

Laidlaw explained that children as young as 13 years old are receiving “medical treatment” in the form of hormone therapy and puberty blockers, which disrupts normal development.

The puberty-blocking drugs given to “transgender youth” harms bone development, stops normal sexual development and puts the children at risk of osteoporosis.

Laidlaw also noted that transgender children report greater self-harm, greater mental health problems and greater dissatisfaction with their bodies after taking puberty-blocking drugs.

“Now, you’d think if you had these side effects of these medications, wouldn’t you want to stop?”  Laidlaw asked.

Laidlaw brought up the government funded research of Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy, who has received $5.7 million to administer “early medical treatment” to “transgender” children as young as 8 years old.

Olson-Kennedy gives “cross-sex hormones” to her subjects, which means that girls as young as 8 are given testosterone.

Laidlaw also played a clip of Olson-Kennedy defending mastectomies, breast surgery, for teenage girls.

“People make life-altering decisions in adolescence all the time, and honestly, most of them are good,” Olson-Kennedy said.

“And here’s the other thing about chest surgery: If you want breasts at a later point in your life, you can go and get them,” she said.

This is absolutely sickening.  Children struggle with their basic math homework, and people such as Olson-Kennedy expect them to make decisions that will change their lives in ways they cannot comprehend.

The scary part is that lunatics like Olson-Kennedy are given millions of dollars to test their “transgender” delusions on children.

“This whole thing is an experiment on children,” Laidlaw said.  “We are ignoring the voices of desisters and people who have come out of this and recognize their sex. And the NIH is allowing unethical research to be conducted on adolescents, in my opinion.”

Not long ago, conservatives warned that liberals would try pushing their transgender agenda on children — and now the United States government is funding it.

We Want Net Neutrality

Verizon throttled fire department’s
“unlimited” data during California wildfire

“Fire department had to pay twice as much to lift throttling during wildfire response.”

Update:  The Santa Clara fire department has responded to Verizon’s claim that the throttling was just a customer service error and “has nothing to do with net neutrality.”  To the contrary, “Verizon’s throttling has everything to do with net neutrality,” a county official said.

Verizon Wireless’ throttling of a fire department that uses its data services has been submitted as evidence in a lawsuit that seeks to reinstate federal net neutrality rules.

“County Fire has experienced throttling by its ISP, Verizon,” Santa Clara County Fire Chief Anthony Bowden wrote in a declaration.  “This throttling has had a significant impact on our ability to provide emergency services.  Verizon imposed these limitations despite being informed that throttling was actively impeding County Fire’s ability to provide crisis-response and essential emergency services.”

Bowden’s declaration was submitted in an addendum to a brief filed by 22 state attorneys general, the District of Columbia, Santa Clara County, Santa Clara County Central Fire Protection District, and the California Public Utilities Commission.  The government agencies are seeking to overturn the recent repeal of net neutrality rules in a lawsuit they filed against the Federal Communications Commission in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Throttling affected response to wildfire

“The Internet has become an essential tool in providing fire and emergency response, particularly for events like large fires which require the rapid deployment and organization of thousands of personnel and hundreds of fire engines, aircraft, and bulldozers,” Bowden wrote.

Santa Clara Fire paid Verizon for “unlimited” data but suffered from heavy throttling until the department paid Verizon more, according to Bowden’s declaration and emails between the fire department and Verizon that were submitted as evidence.

The throttling recently affected “OES 5262,” a fire department vehicle that is “deployed to large incidents as a command and control resource” and is used to “track, organize, and prioritize routing of resources from around the state and country to the sites where they are most needed,” Bowden wrote.

“OES 5262 also coordinates all local government resources deployed to the Mendocino Complex Fire,” an ongoing wildfire that is the largest in California’s history, Bowden wrote.

The vehicle has a device that uses a Verizon SIM card for Internet access.

“In the midst of our response to the Mendocino Complex Fire, County Fire discovered the data connection for OES 5262 was being throttled by Verizon, and data rates had been reduced to 1/200, or less, than the previous speeds,” Bowden wrote.  “These reduced speeds severely interfered with the OES 5262’s ability to function effectively.  My Information Technology staff communicated directly with Verizon via email about the throttling, requesting it be immediately lifted for public safety purposes.”

Verizon did not immediately restore full speeds to the device, however.

 “Verizon representatives confirmed the throttling, but rather than restoring us to an essential data transfer speed, they indicated that County Fire would have to switch to a new data plan at more than twice the cost, and they would only remove throttling after we contacted the Department that handles billing and switched to the new data plan,” Bowden wrote.

Verizon “risking harm to public safety”

Because the throttling continued until the department was able to upgrade its subscription, “County Fire personnel were forced to use other agencies’ Internet Service Providers and their own personal devices to provide the necessary connectivity and data transfer capability required by OES 5262,” Bowden wrote.

Verizon throttling also affected the department in a response to previous fires in December and June, emails show.

Bowden argued that Verizon is likely to keep taking advantage of emergencies in order to push public safety agencies onto more expensive plans.

“In light of our experience, County Fire believes it is likely that Verizon will continue to use the exigent nature of public safety emergencies and catastrophic events to coerce public agencies into higher-cost plans, ultimately paying significantly more for mission-critical service—even if that means risking harm to public safety during negotiations,” Bowden wrote.

Update:  In a statement to Ars three hours after this article was published, Verizon acknowledged that it shouldn’t have continued throttling the fire department’s data service after the department asked Verizon to lift the throttling restrictions.

“Regardless of the plan emergency responders choose, we have a practice to remove data speed restrictions when contacted in emergency situations,” Verizon’s statement said.  “We have done that many times, including for emergency personnel responding to these tragic fires.  In this situation, we should have lifted the speed restriction when our customer reached out to us.  This was a customer support mistake.  We are reviewing the situation and will fix any issues going forward.”

Verizon also noted that the fire department purchased a data service plan that is slowed down after a data usage threshold is reached.  But Verizon said it “made a mistake” in communicating with the department about the terms of the plan.

“We made a mistake in how we communicated with our customer about the terms of its plan,” Verizon said.  “Like all customers, fire departments choose service plans that are best for them.  This customer purchased a government contract plan for a high-speed wireless data allotment at a set monthly cost.  Under this plan, users get an unlimited amount of data but speeds are reduced when they exceed their allotment until the next billing cycle.”

Verizon also said that the Santa Clara “situation has nothing to do with net neutrality or the current proceeding in court.”

Throttling happened after net neutrality repeal

Verizon’s throttling was described in fire department emails beginning June 29 of this year, just weeks after the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality rules took effect.

Even when net neutrality rules were in place, all major carriers imposed some form of throttling on unlimited plans when customers used more than a certain amount of data.  They argued that it was allowed under the rules’ exception for “reasonable network management.”  But while such throttling is generally applied only during times of network congestion, the Santa Clara Fire Department says it was throttled at all times once the device in question went over a 25GB monthly threshold.

Even if Verizon’s throttling didn’t technically violate the no-throttling rule, Santa Clara could have complained to the FCC under the now-removed net neutrality system, which allowed Internet users to file complaints about any unjust or unreasonable prices and practices.  FCC Chairman Ajit   decision to deregulate the broadband industry eliminated that complaint option and also limited consumers’ rights to sue Internet providers over unjust or unreasonable behavior.

Emails between fire department and Verizon

On June 29, Fire Captain Justin Stockman wrote an email to Verizon, noting that download speeds for an essential device used during large disasters had been throttled from 50Mbps to about 30kbps.

A Verizon government accounts manager named Silas Buss responded, saying that the fire department would have to move from a $37.99 plan to a $39.99 plan “to get the data speeds restored on this device.”  Later, Buss suggested that the department switch to a plan that cost at least $99.99 a month.

Stockman didn’t have authority to upgrade the plan, so he sent an email to Deputy Chief Steve Prziborowski that same day.  Stockman wrote:

Verizon is currently throttling OES 5262 so severely that it’s hampering operations for the assigned crew.  This is not the first time we have had this issue.  In December of 2017 while deployed to the Prado Mobilization Center supporting a series of large wildfires, we had the same device with the same SIM card also throttled.  I was able to work through [Fire Department IT executive] Eric Prosser at the time to have service to the device restored, and Eric communicated that Verizon had properly re-categorized the device as truly “unlimited”.

Prziborowski expressed concern about the throttling in an email to Buss.  “Before I give you my approval to do the $2.00 a month upgrade, the bigger question is why our public safety data usage is getting throttled down?”  Prziborowski wrote. “Our understanding from Eric Prosser, our former Information Technology Officer, was that he had received approval from Verizon that public safety should never be gated down because of our critical infrastructure need for these devices.”

While fire department personnel thought they were already paying for “truly” unlimited data, Verizon said they weren’t.

“The short of it is, public safety customers have access to plans that do not have data throughput limitations,” Buss told Prziborowski.  “However, the current plan set for all of SCCFD’s lines does have data throttling limitations.  We will need to talk about making some plan changes to all lines or a selection of lines to address the data throttling limitation of the current plan.”

The emails started up again on July 5 and 6.  “Can confirm that after using 25GB of data, our service drops to zero.  This is unacceptable and needs to be fixed,” fire department IT officer Daniel Farrelly wrote.

Buss clarified that “data throughput is limited to 200kbps or 600kbps” after 25GB of use.  Buss also told fire officials that all Verizon plans have some sort of throttling and that the department would have to pay by the gigabyte to avoid throttling entirely.

Buss wrote:

Verizon has always reserved the right to limit data throughput on unlimited plans. All unlimited data plans offered by Verizon have some sort of data throttling built-in, including the $39.99 plan.  Verizon does offer plans with no data throughput limitations;  these plans require that the customer pay by the GB for use beyond a certain set allotment.

The Mendocino fire began on July 27.  On the night of Sunday, July 29, Stockman sent an email to Bowden:

OES 5262 is deployed again, now to the Mendocino Complex, and is still experiencing the same throttling.  As I understood it from our previous exchange regarding this device, the billing cycle was set to end July 23, which should have alleviated the throttling.  In a side-by-side comparison, a crew member’s personal phone using Verizon was seeing speeds of 20Mbps/7Mbps.  The department Verizon device is experiencing speeds of 0.2Mbps/0.6Mbps, meaning it has no meaningful functionality.

Farrelly wrote a brief email to Buss that night, telling him to “Remove any data throttling on OES5262 effective immediately.”  Farrelly emailed Buss again the next morning, saying, “Please work with us.  All we need is a plan that does not offer throttling or caps of any kind.”

Buss responded that afternoon, suggesting a plan that costs $99.99 for the first 20GB and $8 per gigabyte thereafter.  “To get the plan changed immediately, I would suggest calling in the plan change to our customer service team,” Buss wrote.

That was the last email submitted in the court exhibit.

Santa Clara apparently switched to the $99.99 plan, more than doubling its bill. “While Verizon ultimately did lift the throttling, it was only after County Fire subscribed to a new, more expensive plan,” Bowden wrote in his declaration.
