While the US Corporate Media has been busy all week fuming about a White House spokeswoman taking selfies on a couch and applauding the snide anti-Trump innuendoes at the Academy Awards, Sputnik News reported that President Trump's promise to crack down on sex-trafficking and child-abuse rings has taken more criminals off the streets in one month than Obama did in all of 2014 combined.
At a press conference on Thursday, the President said of sex trafficking: "Dedicated men and women across the federal government have focused on this for some time---it's been much more focused during the last four weeks."
Liz Crokin, a sex-crimes advocate and writer, estimated that the FBI and local law enforcement have been rounding up about 400 suspects per week; and lists seven sex-trafficking rings which have been broken up:
January 27th: 42 suspects in Tennessee
January 29th: 474 suspects in California
January 31st: 16 in Michigan
February 5th: 108 in Illinois
February 5th: 178 in Texas
February 8th: 11 in Virginia
February 14th: 42 in Florida
Tim Wiley of the Detroit FBI Office told WWJ-NEWS following the Michigan arrests that sex trafficking of the type targeted nationwide is part of larger organized crime syndicates. "Opioid use plays a big part in sex trafficking today. In the past, these pimps used a lot of force and coercion---now not so much, It's often a case of drug addiction."
Crokin told Sputnik News that she is appalled by the Corporate Media blackout of this story. "This should be one of the biggest stories in the national news...the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass paedophile arrests."
The recent controversy over Milo Yiannapolous' remarks have shown that there are unresolved legal issues relative to sexual consent, and we should have an informed national dialogue about this. But in most of these cases, consensual sex is not really an issue. The pimps and traffickers involved are criminals who employ force and addiction to traffic human beings for their own profit.
So why has the Corporate Media ignored these stories? And even more to the point, why are international crooks like George Soros and John Podesta organizing against Trump? I think that we can all draw our own conclusions about that.
