Another Democratic official charged in satanist sex crimes

Another Democratic official charged in satanist sex crimes By Ray Gronberg : The Herald-Sun

DURHAM -- Police say they've arrested and charged a third person in connection with an ongoing rape and kidnapping investigation.

Diana Palmer, 44, is charged with being an accessory after the fact, Durham Police Department spokeswoman Kammie Michael said Wednesday afternoon.

Palmer is first vice chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party. Her arrest came five days after police arrested the party's third vice chairwoman, Joy Johnson, 30, and Johnson's husband, Joseph Scott Craig, 25.

Craig faces three counts of second-degree kidnapping, one count of second-degree rape, one count of second degree-forcible sex offense and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

(snip)

A Durham County prosecutor said in court earlier this week that the charges stemmed from some sort of satanic ritual.

Palmer's attorney, Bill Thomas, said Wednesday that Palmer "vehemently denies any knowledge of any crime being perpetrated by the persons who have been previously arrested in this case, and further she denies any association whatsoever with a satanic cult or any other cult."

This reminds me of the Duke lacrosse scandel. I wonder if there could be any tie-in to the principles in that legal fiasco among the political/judicial leadership being involved with this?

I live here in Nifongville, and actually ate dinner last night with a friend that worked briefly with Joy Johnson and was stunned at the charges. She couldn’t believe it...said Johnson was nice and quiet, the usual sort of “he was such a nice boy” you find people saying about serial killers, I guess.

This has no national traction yet, BTW. Big story here in Durham and in the Triangle in general, but nothing nationally. Tell me if it wasn’t two biggies in the Durham County Republican Party (if we even HAVE one), it wouldn’t be all over the national news by now.

Arrest warrants allege Craig assaulted one woman with a solid wood case, “inflicting serious injury.” Another arrest warrant alleges Craig kidnapped a 16-year-old and assaulted him with a wood cane and a cable cord.

Durham County is near Raleigh... about 90 miles from me. This story is unbelievable.

Speaking as someone who knows a GOP county vice chairman (heh heh), why do they need SO MANY freakin’ vice chairs? :)

I mean, Durham County is overwhelmingly Democratic. Nifong Country, you know.

From Third person charged in satanic rituals case


Joy Suzanne Johnson, left,
and Joseph Scott Craig.

excerpt...

The incidents, according to warrants, occurred in December 2007 and in January and May.

Palmer was a partner with Craig and Johnson in a company called Indigo Dawn. The company's Web site says Indigo Dawn offers products and services "to promote enlightenment and assist in the development and self-empowerment and divine potential."

Among the services offered, according to the Web site, are "intuitive guidance, past-life regression, spirit guide communication and healing and cleansing."

Two charges of aiding and abetting filed against Johnson on Tuesday reveal new details of what the woman in their house alleged.

The warrants accuse Johnson of "instigating and encouraging" her husband as he handcuffed a man and forced him "into a dog cage, leaving him there for hours, terrorizing him."

Johnson was charged Friday with two other counts of aiding and abetting. The charges stem from accusations by a woman who listed the couple's home as her address.

The man who police say was caged also lived at the house.

"Craig faces three counts of second-degree kidnapping, one count of second-degree rape, one count of second degree-forcible sex offense and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. ... A Durham County prosecutor said in court earlier this week that the charges stemmed from some sort of satanic ritual."

From their website...ya' just can't make this stuff up.

Joy Johnson has been a political, peace and social activist since her early teens. She has devoted her life to peace activism and searching for proactive means to bring about world peace.

.....She is also a member of the Human Relations Commission of Durham, N.C.

Rev. Joseph Craig has always seen the world through different eyes. He has known since a very young age that things were not as simple as those around him would like to suggest. By the age of 6 without even knowing the term for it, Joseph knew that this was not the first time he had walked the face of the earth. This level of understanding and reason is something that has continued throughout his life.

"His Lady Macbeth [Bernardine Dohrn] is not merely a lawyer, but a member of the American Bar Association’s governing elite, as well as the director of Northwestern University’s Children and Family Justice Center"

Allies in War
By David Horowitz
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, September 17, 2001:

ON THE MORNING OF THE ATTACKS on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, along with a million other readers of the New York Times including many who would never be able to read the paper again, I opened its pages to be confronted by a color photo showing a middle-aged couple holding hands and affecting a defiant look at the camera. The article was headlined in an irony that could not have been more poignant, "No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives."

The couple pictured were Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, former leaders of the 1960s’ Weather Underground, America’s first terrorist cult. One of their bombing targets, as it happened, was the Pentagon.

"I don’t regret setting bombs," Ayers was quoted in the opening line of the Times profile; "I feel we didn’t do enough."

In 1969, Ayers and his wife convened a "War Council" in Flint Michigan, whose purpose was to launch a military front inside the United States with the purpose of helping Third World revolutionaries conquer and destroy it.

Taking charge of the podium, dressed in high-heeled boots and a leather mini-skirt – her signature uniform – Dorhn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against "Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly of the beast."

Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops. Referring to the helpless victims of the Manson Family as the "Tate Eight" (the most famous was actress Sharon Tate) Dohrn shouted:

"Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!"

(big snip)

Today William Ayers is not merely an author favored by the New York Times, but a Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois, Chicago.

His Lady Macbeth [Bernardine Dohrn] is not merely a lawyer, but a member of the American Bar Association’s governing elite, as well as the director of Northwestern University’s Children and Family Justice Center.

What are you talking about?

The comparison between Johnson and Dohrn. Both are obvious sickos, yet work on such things as "Human Relations" and "Children and Family Justice". Sorry for posting without commenting. I thought you would see the connection.

"Joy Johnson has been a political, peace and social activist since her early teens. She has devoted her life to peace activism and searching for proactive means to bring about world peace.

These are the sort of folks who are always doing the bidding of their Satanic majesty.

Then, there are the demons. They're not as smart. Sometimes they blow the whistle on the boss because they think you will agree with them that he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

That's what got Obama into doing a speech on "faith based initiatives" within the same framework as these crimes coming to light.

Not that Obama is the AntiChrist or that these people are his demons. All that sort of thing is actually metaphysical with only a pale imitation being played out in the here and now.

Still, it's interesting that William Ayres and this bunch end up following the same guy.

“Another Democratic official charged in satanist sex crimes”

Thirty years ago when I said that the media were not just biased, but were making stuff up, people would roll their eyes and call for a strait jacket.

Today, when I say that all leftism is of and from Satan—all of it, from limousine liberals like George Clooney to mass-murdering dictators like Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot—I get that same eye-rolling.

I’m just as right about this as I was about the media thirty years ago.
