Your Child Needs You, To Be The Parent They Need And Deserve.

Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and HIV/AIDS are out of control

Before I begin, I want to tell you what some of you already know, then, I am going to show you so there is no doubt.

Years ago I met a Lady that told me many disturbing things about Our Country, which I found hard to believe, although I didn’t ever think she was misinformed. Everyone that knows me, knows I have a very different set of numbers and statistics than probably 99% of all sites like ours.

After five (5) years and seven (7) months, not one (1) stat I list on Our website and blog has ever been disproven.

The Lady I met about 10 years ago is Sister Helen Ryan, an authority on trafficked women and Children.  Helen warned me many times that all stats in Our Country are no where near correct, and now, at this point in time, the whole world has followed suit.

Emerging Drug-Resistant Gonorrhea: What’s New and What Now?
March 06, 2017

A decade ago, there was still only five treatment options for gonorrhea, and even then, they had to try one, then another, and another before finding one that worked. On this day in 2017, CDC finally admitted what many of us already knew, gonorrhea was now wearing a SuperGonorrhea cape, and not 1 of the 5 know treatments had any effect on this STD.

Syphilis Call To Action-2017-04, a pdf from the CDC

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.

Chlamydia is a result of homosexual sex.  Chlamydia isn’t the most dangerous sexually transmitted disease, but it is the most common in the U.S.  However, Chlamydia can do serious, lasting damage to a woman’s reproductive system, in addition to potentially causing fatal complications to a fetus during pregnancy.

Gonorrhea is particularly concerning for disease specialists due to the emergence of antibiotic resistant strains of Gonorrhea, and continues to climb at an alarming rate.

Syphilis is already higher than anytime in the last 30 years, and continues to climb at an alarming rate.

Syphilis in pregnancy is the second leading cause of stillbirth globally, and also results in prematurity, low birthweight, neonatal death, and infections in newborns.

First, it must be said that HIV/AIDS stats are possibly as much as 50% or even higher, due to the fact that it is unknown how many cases go unreported, and there is no list compiled for Children newborn to 13 – 15 years-of-age.

HIV remains a leading cause of death worldwide and the leading cause of death globally among women of reproductive age.

Misguided beliefs about the disease, and sexual violence have contributed to these high rates.  Women under the age of 40 including pregnant women are most affected.

Apparently, our government is operating in a plethora of sexual promiscuity and unsafe practices (but we already knew that).  The data shows Washington DC also has the highest rate of gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV patients in the country.

However, our Dear Allies, the UK, seems content to be doing their best to keeping step with Our Dear Law Makers, and, by the way, Our Climate Change Brow Beaters in NATO, France, would just love to loudly protest their standing, although, as is their way of doing things, I’m pretty sure it would be well after the chance of doing something a bit easier to change things, as was the “Hitler entering The Rhineland Armed” fiasco.

Russia doesn’t seem to be wrapping up before hitting the sheets either, as it’s in the top five European countries for seven out of the eight diseases studied.

It’s probably because they’re not Putin any effort into progressing the federation’s conservative base.

As of today, these courageous Law Enforcement Officers have successfully arrested 12,000 fugitives.

AG Paxton’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit Reaches Milestone with
12,000 Total Arrests

AUSTIN, TX  –  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today commended the Fugitive Apprehension Unit of his office for reaching a significant milestone since its inception in 2003.

The unit achieved its 12,000 arrest with the capture of Robert Chapa for violating his parole after being convicted for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

The Fugitive Apprehension Unit also made six other noteworthy arrests:

  • Christopher Lucio for violating parole after being convicted for aggravated robbery.
  • Steven Parcell Balthaser for aggravated sexual assault of a child.
  • Clarence Martin Johnson for violating probation after being convicted for indecency with a child by sexual contact.
  • Jordan Xavier Bennett for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
  • Corbey Glenn Grace for violating parole after being convicted for homicide.
  • Adesanya Prince for possession with intent to promote child pornography.

“I am proud of the bravery and valor demonstrated by our Fugitive Apprehension Unit every day while they keep Texas strong, safe, and just,” said Attorney General Paxton.  “As of today, these courageous law enforcement officers have successfully arrested 12,000 fugitives.  Our officers provide invaluable security for Texans, and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work and dedication.”

The Fugitive Apprehension Unit includes investigators, criminal analysts, administrative assistants, and a command staff who operate in regional offices in Austin, Houston, and Arlington.

The unit’s mission is to locate and arrest violent fugitives, convicted child sex offenders who violate conditions of their parole, and to arrest sex offenders who fail to comply with the state’s mandated sex offender registration requirements.

It also assists in locating missing and endangered runaway children reported by local law enforcement agencies to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children®.

Children Are Low Priority In NY

Agents with ICE’s ERO have detained an illegal immigrant in NYC who was charged with sexual abuse of a minor.

ICE arrests illegal immigrant after NYPD
releases him after charging him with
child rape, sexual abuse

Federal immigration authorities on Monday arrested an illegal immigrant who had been released from NYPD custody despite being charged with child rape and sexual abuse.

Miguel Federico Ajqui-Ajtzalam, a 20-year-old Guatemalan national illegally present in the U.S., was arrested in New York City late last month on multiple charges related to sexually abusing a minor, according to a press release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) had lodged an immigration detainer with the New York City Department of Corrections (NYCDOC) after his arrest.

The detainer was ignored because of New York City’s sanctuary policies and Ajqui-Ajtzalam was released from custody. ERO officers apprehended him on Monday.

Thomas R. Decker, field officer director for ERO New York, said it was “inconceivable” that Ajqui-Ajtzalam – who was arrested on charges of rape and sexual abuse of a child – should be released back into the community rather than being transferred to ICE.

“It’s frightening that our detainer was ignored and he was released into New York City streets to possibly re-offend,” Decker said.  “The safety of city residents, especially the more vulnerable, continues to be a priority for ICE enforcement.”

U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) initially encountered Ajqui-Ajtzalam in September 2016 after he illegally entered the U.S. without inspection, ICE said.  He was processed as an unaccompanied alien child, issued a Notice to Appear, and was released from ICE custody two months later on an Order of Recognizance (OREC) pending removal proceedings.

He is currently being held in ICE custody pending removal proceedings before a federal immigration judge.

Images of Child Abuse, Animal Abuse seized
in Jacksonville

JACKSON COUNTY, OR  –  A Jackson County man was arrested Friday on felony charges after police said they found hundreds of child pornography images and dozens of images of animals being sexually abused.

Gary Lee Watts, 61, was arrested at his home in the 7300 block of Upper Applegate Road early Friday morning, capping off an investigation going back more than a year, according to a press release issued by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.

Southern Oregon High-Tech Crimes Task Force investigators said they found more than 700 images of child pornography on equipment seized from Watts’ home, according to the sheriff’s office, plus more than 50 images of animal sexual abuse.

The sheriff’s office started its investigation in September of last year, after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® alerted local police of child pornography being downloaded at the home.

The sheriff’s office had assistance from Oregon State Police, Medford police and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in the case.

The sheriff’s office arrested Watts on 20 felony counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse and 10 misdemeanor counts of encouraging sexual assault of an animal.  Watts was held in the Jackson County Jail Friday on $275,000 bail, records show.

Court records show no prior criminal history for Watts.

DCFS (CPS) Knew Of Abuse At Hospital Of Horrors

Chicago Lakeshore Hospital

Chicago Psychiatric Hospital Under Fire
After Child Abuse Allegations — Again

A new lawsuit calls Chicago Lakeshore a “hospital of horrors,” where children as young as 7 were allegedly sexually abused.

Child Predators Should Be Locked Up

This was posted on our website December 6, 2018.  Chicago Lakeshore Hospital’s 60-bed children’s unit is Uptown.  The hospital faces state and federal scrutiny after a rise in complaints alleging sexual and physical abuse by hospital employees and patients.

A federal lawsuit filed Wednesday by the Cook County public guardian alleged that children as young as 7 were sexually abused, while others were injected with sedatives to control them and physically attacked, at a Chicago psychiatric hospital. Child welfare officials, meanwhile, allegedly worked with the hospital to cover up the abuse.

Charles Golbert, the Cook County public guardian, filed the lawsuit on behalf of seven children who are in the care of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and who had been involuntarily admitted to Chicago Lakeshore Hospital in 2017 and 2018.

“These kids are entitled to justice for what happened to them at this facility,” Golbert said in an interview Wednesday.  “DCFS knew perfectly well about all of the problems and dangers at this hospital.”

He added that he hoped the lawsuit sent a strong message to DCFS: “You cannot keep kids at placements once you know the placement is dangerous.”

ProPublica Illinois and the Chicago Tribune in separate investigations last year revealed numerous allegations of sexual abuse, assault and patient safety violations at the hospital.  In response, state lawmakers and the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, which monitors DCFS as part of a federal consent decree, demanded the agency take action.

DCFS’ acting inspector general had previously raised concerns with the agency about the safety of children at Lakeshore.  The ACLU took DCFS to federal court following the news reports, and late last year the agency agreed to stop sending its children to the hospital and removed those who remained there.

“We support this effort to hold responsible those who have done harm to children in the care of DCFS,” the ACLU’s Heidi Dalenberg said on Wednesday.

Chicago Lakeshore Hospital CEO Patricia McClure-Chessier said in a statement that officials “have always placed the health and safety of the children we treat as our top priority.”  She said it was “tragic” that Golbert chose to “malign health care providers instead of addressing the root of this statewide crisis: a lack of state funding which prevents children from getting appropriate care at the right time and in the right place.”

She said she will “vigorously defend Chicago Lakeshore Hospital using facts rather than the egregious distortion that has been portrayed before the press.”

DCFS takes allegations of abuse seriously and has not allowed children to be placed at Lakeshore this year, spokesman Jassen Strokosch said in a statement.  He said the agency, which has a new acting director, has hired more than 300 employees since April and has “begun to make dramatic improvements to overcome the challenges that have plagued the department for decades.”

“DCFS is committed to protecting the children of Illinois and providing the best possible services to the children in our care,” Strokosch said.

The lawsuit detailed abuse at the hands of employees and other patients, alleging children found themselves at a “hospital of horrors” instead of a safe environment where they could focus on their treatment.

One 14-year-old girl, according to the lawsuit, was allegedly sexually assaulted multiple times by a nurse who showed her pornographic videos as well as allowed her and others to fill out their own medical paperwork and to use the nurse’s vaping device.  The girl and others reportedly escaped from the hospital and were missing for several months.

That nurse, according to the lawsuit, was charged this year with attempted murder in an incident involving her housemate.  Her nursing license was revoked.

The lawsuit also claims a male hospital employee entered the room of a 12-year-old girl and forced her hand on his genitals and grabbed her breasts.  A 7-year-old boy was allegedly forced to perform oral sex on his older roomate, who had previously physically abused him.  And the hospital didn’t put precautions in place to protect an 8-year-old girl who also was sexually assaulted by a peer, the lawsuit alleges, despite the hospital knowing the boy had previously sexually assaulted his roommate.

The lawsuit, which seeks monetary compensation for the children, alleges that DCFS relied so heavily on Lakeshore because it “had worn out its welcome” at other psychiatric hospitals in the Chicago area.  Psychiatric hospitals were reluctant to admit DCFS children because state budgetary constraints delayed payments to them, and DCFS routinely kept children in psychiatric hospitals after they had been medically cleared for discharge, according to the lawsuit.

In June 2018, ProPublica Illinois first reported on children trapped in psychiatric hospitals because DCFS struggled to find them appropriate placements.  Golbert filed a lawsuit last December on behalf of the hundreds of children who remained in psychiatric hospitals after being cleared for release.  That lawsuit is pending. DCFS said at the time that finding appropriate placement for children is challenging and that the agency was working to reduce the need for hospitalization and build up additional places for children.

DCFS’ desperation for a psychiatric hospital that would accept its children led agency officials and Lakeshore to engage in “concerted efforts to cover-up or discredit the allegations of abuse,” according to the lawsuit, which also alleged the hospital failed to repair broken video cameras and destroyed existing video in an attempt to hide evidence that could corroborate the allegations.

The lawsuit names Lakeshore, its owner Signature Healthcare Services, former hospital CEO David Fletcher-Janzen, a number of hospital employees who worked there at the time of the allegations and several DCFS officials, including former department chief Beverly “B.J.” Walker.

Last December, the hospital was days away from losing federal funding.  Officials said they would terminate Lakeshore’s Medicare agreement because the hospital could not ensure its patients were free from sexual and physical abuse and it did not have sufficient policies to investigate the allegations.

One year later, the hospital finds itself in a similar position. Federal officials notified Lakeshore that they plan to terminate its Medicare agreement on Monday, the latest deadline in a long list of dates that have been extended.  The hospital has filed temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions in federal court to fight the termination.  Lakeshore officials have said losing the federal funding could force the hospital to shut down.

An inspection last month by the Illinois Department of Public Health on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services found deficiencies that “immediately jeopardize the health and safety of its patients,” federal officials wrote in a letter to the hospital.

In her statement, McClure-Chessier said Chicago Lakeshore Hospital “has always cooperated with regulators in a transparent way and we work diligently to correct any problems that arise while treating the most difficult and troubled populations — populations other hospitals cannot or will not treat because of acuity or inadequate reimbursement.”
