September 7, 2022

AUSTIN, TX  –  Attorney General Paxton has signed on as a supporter of the Women’s Bill of Rights, a document developed by the Independent Women’s Voice urging codification of the common sense and reality-based definition of a womanThe Bill of Rights challenges woke activists’ efforts to ignore basic biology and undermine fundamental truths to promote their worldview.

The radical left has long had trouble with telling the truth,” said Attorney General Paxton. They’ve tried to redefine the word ‘recession,’ revise American history, paint concerned parents as ‘domestic terrorists,’ and now they want to fundamentally change what it means to be a woman.  It’s wrong, and it’s why I’m fighting to stop their dangerous agenda that threatens women and anyone who stands up for what’s right.”

The document highlights key biological differences between men and women.  It also points out that when state and federal laws don’t recognize those differences, it limits women’s “opportunities and threatens [their] privacy and our safety.”

FEDERAL JUDGE SIDES WITH TXAG AND 12 OTHER PLAINTIFF STATES, ISSUES PERMANENT INJUNCTION AGAINST BIDEN ADMIN ILLEGAL MORATORIUM ON OIL, GAS LEASING ON FED PUBLIC LANDS AND OFFSHORE

August 29, 2022

AUSTIN, TX  –  A federal judge in Louisiana sided with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and 12 other plaintiff states in a Louisiana-led lawsuit, issuing a permanent injunction against the Biden Administration’s illegal moratorium on oil and gas leasing on federal public lands and offshore waters.

The permanent injunction comes after Attorney General Paxton joined the lawsuit in 2021 and successfully obtained a preliminary injunction last year.

As high energy costs and skyrocketing inflation continue to crush American families, the Biden Administration’s moratorium would only have increased the suffering.

This all-out assault against oil and natural gas production would have killed good-paying jobs and increased consumer energy costs, all while decreasing funds that could be used for the restoration of state coastlines.

“Joe Biden may have declared war on American energy independence, but we’re fighting back and we’re winning in court,” said Attorney General Paxton.  “The executive order was a clear example of unconstitutional federal overreach, and I’m pleased to see the court make the right decision in issuing a permanent injunction to prevent it from taking effect.”

In recognizing the damage done by the Biden Administration’s actions, the court stated: “Millions and possibly billions of dollars are at stake. Local government funding, jobs for Plaintiff States’ workers, and funds for the restoration of . . . Coastline[s] are at stake.

Plaintiff States have a reliance interest in the proceeds derived from offshore and onshore oil and gas lease sales.  Additionally, the public interest is served when the law is followed.  The public will be served if Government Defendants are enjoined from taking actions contrary to law.  In a time of high gas and oil prices, draining of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, and looking to other nations to supply the United States’ oil and gas needs, the public interest would be served by a permanent injunction.”

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK  –  The Oklahoma City Police Department says a metro mother was arrested on 2 charges of child neglect Sunday afternoon after her children were found unconscious in the backseat of a hot car parked at a local Walmart.

According to the incident report, 39-year-old Elizabeta Babb was arrested at the Walmart Supercenter near I-240 and Santa Fe Ave. after her two 2-year-olds were rescued from a hot vehicle in the parking lot.

Police say Walmart security footage shows Babb entered the store with one of the children at 2:22 p.m. before walking back out with the child at 2:28 p.m., deposits the child back in the car and walks back into the store.

While Babb is inside the store, a witness outside crawled through the open sunroof to unlock the car and retrieve the unresponsive children.

According to the report, when roused, one child began crying while the other remained lethargic.

A Walmart security officer put the children into her security vehicle with the air conditioning running.

That security officer told officers the car was hot to the touch and even burned her while she attempted to retrieve the children.

Meanwhile, security officials inside the store were repeating the vehicle’s tag number over the intercom in efforts to have the vehicle owner walk out, but no one did.

At 2:57 p.m., Babb is seen leaving self-checkout and walking outside where her children were being examined by medics.

“When confronted, Babb stated she was only in the store about five minutes,” said the reporting officer.

DHS and OKCPD determined Babb should be arrested on scene during their investigation.

The children’s father and grandmother were contacted to take the children from the scene after their medical evaluation.

Babb now faces two counts of Child Neglect. 

VISA Called Out By District Judge For Aiding PORNHUB To Monetize Child Pornography

US District Judge Rules VISA Aided Pornhub & Profited From Child Pornography.

US District Judge Rules VISA Aided Pornhub & Profited From Child Porn

“As the court sees it, financially benefitting from the sexual exploitation of minors is the core of this case.” US District Court Judge Cormac Carney

Ironic, isn’t it?  Isn’t Visa the same credit card company that has refused to work with family owned businesses, gun stores and other all-American businesses in the past?  Yep, same company and yet, here they are being called out by a US District Judge for profiting by aiding Pornhub to monetize child porn.

The East Bay Times reports:

Visa Inc. must face claims that it profited from child pornography by processing payments for the parent company of Pornhub, a decision that Visa says raises questions about the liability payments firms could shoulder as they handle billions of transactions.

US District Judge Cormac Carney in California denied parts of Visa’s motion to be dismissed from claims brought by a woman who is suing both the payments giant and MindGeek — the parent company of Pornhub — over a sexually explicit video taken of her when she was 13.

“It is simple,” Carney said in his ruling late Friday.  “Visa made the decision to continue to recognize MindGeek as a merchant, despite its alleged knowledge that MindGeek monetized child porn.  MindGeek made the decision to continue monetizing child porn, and there are enough facts pled to suggest that the latter decision depended on the former.”

Visa said it believes it’s an “improper defendant” in the case.

“Visa condemns sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, and child sexual abuse materials as repugnant to our values and purpose as a company,” the San Francisco-based firm said in an emailed statement.  “This pre-trial ruling is disappointing and mischaracterizes Visa’s role and its policies and practices.  Visa will not tolerate the use of our network for illegal activity.”

The lawsuit is the latest turn in a long-running controversy between Visa and Pornhub. The payments giant and rival Mastercard Inc. both began reviewing their ties to MindGeek after a New York Times column in December 2020 accused Pornhub of distributing videos depicting child abuse and non-consensual violence.

Immediately after the review, Pornhub announced it had removed 80% of its content.
Right, Visa condemns all this sexual exploitation, but has been actively involved in allowing its services to be used for all sorts of pornography.

The New York Post adds information about the victim.

After several weeks, the clip, entitled “13-Year Old Brunette Shows Off For the Camera,” was taken down but reuploaded on other MindGeek sites in 2014, garnering millions of views and earning the company advertising money facilitated by Visa, the victim alleged. The illicit clip was still on the company’s sites as recently as 2020, according to the suit.

The plaintiff fell into a deep depression, tried to kill herself and became a heroin user after her unwanted infamy, she claimed.  Still underage, she began acting in other porn videos produced by an older man to support her habit, the lawsuit said.

The report went on to say:

In his ruling, US District Court Judge Cormac Carney wrote that there was enough evidence to find that Visa engaged in a criminal conspiracy with the online pornographers.

“Here is Visa, standing at and controlling the valve, insisting that it cannot be blamed for the water spill because someone else is wielding the hose,” Carney wrote.

“When MindGeek decides to monetize child porn, and Visa decides to continue to allow its payment network to be used for that goal despite knowledge of MindGeek’s monetization of child porn, it is entirely foreseeable that victims of child porn like Plaintiff will suffer the harms that Plaintiff alleges,” the ruling said.

The Central District of California court also ordered MindGeek to undergo jurisdictional discovery and shine a light on its shadowy operations, which the judge said ensures “a hopeless whack-a-mole situation for victims.”

It also shot down Visa’s argument that it was an innocent third party, saying the credit card company briefly suspended its ties to Pornhub in 2020 amid allegations it housed thousands of illegal videos before joining forces again.

The news came a month after two Pornhub executives resigned amid widening inquiries into purported underage and non-consensual videos on the site.

MindGeek, which is based in Montreal and also owns Brazzers, RedTube and YouPorn, claims to have 115 million daily visitors and 3 billion daily ad impressions.

Pornhub was the ninth most popular webpage in the US last month, according to Semrush, a search engine marketing company.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said it investigated some 5 million suspected child pornography videos in 2021.

BUILDING AND MAINTAINING A GOOD FAMILY

There is something BAD wrong when any Child fears their Parents.

Building a Good Family

There are basic qualities and values needed to have and maintain a good family.

These qualities and values are:

  • Love
  • Honor, always truth and loyalty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Kindness
  • Communication
  • Consideration
  • Duty
  • Responsibility
The Future of this world

Children are the future of this world.  As a good parent it is your responsibility to teach your children from birth, the above qualities and values, as these are handed down from generation-to-generation, and prepares them to be good family members, good friends, good neighbors, good employees, good leaders, and good citizens.

Good caring parents teach by example, always remembering that genuine praise, guidance, and understanding are the mark of a good parent.  As your child grows, regular family quality time strengthens trust and mutual respect, forging a stronger family bond, where communication grows easier, and good memories are more easily made.

Maintaining A Good Family

The five “L’s” of a good, strong, family:

1 – Love is at the heart of the family.  All humans have the need to love and to be loved; the family is normally the place where love is expressed.  Love is the close personal blending of physical and mental togetherness.  It includes privacy, intimacy, sharing, belonging, and caring.  The atmosphere of real love is one of honesty, understanding, patience, and forgiveness.  Such love does not happen automatically; it requires constant daily effort by each family member.  Loving families share activities and express a great deal of gratitude for one another.  Love takes time, affection, and a positive attitude.

2 – Learning – Families are where we learn values, skills, and behavior.  Strong families manage and control their learning experiences.  They establish a pattern of home life. They select appropriate television programs.  They guide their children into the world outside the home.  They do not let social forces rule their family life.  They involve themselves in neighborhood, school, government, church, and business in ways that support their family values.  Strong families teach by example and learn through experience as they explain and execute their values.

3 – Loyalty – Strong families have a sense of loyalty and devotion toward family members. The family sticks together.  They stand by each other during times of trouble.  They stand up for each other when attacked by someone outside the family.  Loyalty builds through sickness and health, want and good fortune, failure and success, and all the things the family faces.  The family is a place of shelter for individual family members.  In times of personal success or defeat, the family becomes a cheering section or a mourning bench. They also learn a sense of give and take in the family, which helps prepare them for the necessary negotiations in other relationships.

4 – Laughter is good family medicine.  Humor is an escape valve for family tension. Through laughter we learn to see ourselves honestly and objectively.  Building a strong family is serious business, but if taken too seriously, family life can become very tense. Laughter balances our efforts and gives us a realistic view of things.  To be helpful, family laughter must be positive in nature.  Laughing together builds up a family.  Laughing at each other divides a family.  Families that learn to use laughter in a positive way can release tensions, gain a clearer view, and bond relationships.

5 – Leadership is essential.  Family members, usually the adults, must assume responsibility for leading the family.  If no one accepts this vital role, the family will weaken.  Each family needs its own special set of rules and guidelines.  These rules are based on the family members’ greatest understanding of one another.  The guidelines pass along from the adults to the children by example, with firmness and fairness.  Strong families can work together to establish their way of life, allowing children to have a voice in decision making and enforcing rules.  However, in the initial stages and in times of crisis, adult family members must get the family to work together.
