    OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma is now one of 34 states to be selected for a new federal grant to aid sex trafficking survivors. Over the next three years, $500,000 will be designated to help find temporary housing, work programs, and other needs for those who have been bought and sold in the metro. The unsettling reality is, for every criminal caught, there are even more victims trying to escape the dangers of this hidden crisis. There are also many misconceptions about where the true danger lies. Fifteen years ago, human trafficking was often mistaken for street-level prostitution, in 2020 that’s...

    The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees on Wednesday released an interim report on their monthslong joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.” Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said their investigation has “faced many obstacles” from Democrats on their committees and that executive agencies “failed to comply with document requests.” The chairmen added that “there remains much work to be done” in their probe. Hunter Biden is the son of the Democratic presidential nominee...

    Thank you, Cheri. Good morning everyone and thank you all for coming today.I am here to discuss, this morning, a serious challenge facing law enforcement throughout the country and the DEA’s operation that has been mounted to meet that challenge, and to discuss some of the preliminary results. It relates to drug trafficking, methamphetamine, and the associated violent crime.I’ve always said that the first duty of government is to protect the public safety and that is obviously the department’s top priority. State and local law enforcement has the primary responsibility — they’re really at the front line of protecting...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thirteen men have been arrested in Madison, Indiana, as part of an investigation into child solicitation. The Madison Police Department's Crime Suppression Team began an online investigation in August, police chief John Wallace said in a press conference on Tuesday. Wallace said many of the men arrested were from outside the city of Madison, and some traveled for hours to meet who they thought was a minor. "As a 33-year law enforcement veteran, I was taken back by the scope of this investigation," Wallace said, asking that parents monitor their children's activity on social media. The...

    US Border Patrol agents in Laredo, Texas found a missing girl inside a tractor-trailer at the I-35 checkpoint crossing into Mexico. The girl was missing out of Odessa, Texas -- nearly a seven-hour drive north of Laredo where she was found. The girl was not publicly identified, but officials confirmed she is a juvenile. It's unclear how long she had been missing. The Webb County Sheriff's Office took the driver into custody. No further information was available.

    The Italian Coast Guard responded to a distress call Saturday from a rescue boat funded by the British street artist Banksy, which requested assistance after taking 219 migrants onboard in the Mediterranean. "The Italian Coastguard have evacuated 49 of our most vulnerable guests," a post on the vessel's Twitter account said Saturday evening. The tweet said that Italian authorities also took the body of a person who had died prior to being rescued by the boat's crew on Friday. The "Louise Michel," a former French naval boat, helped to rescue 89 people on Thursday, according to a spokesperson for the...

    President Donald Trump hosted a campaign rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the same night the Democratic National Convention was scheduled to kick off in Milwaukee. While Democrats instead opted for a virtual conference to avoid spreading the coronavirus, Trump drew a crowd of at least 1,000 people. In off-the-cuff remarks, Trump suggested to Republicans that if they wanted to win elections, they had to keep cannabis legalization off the ballot. Though the Trump Administration has attacked cannabis reform in behind-closed-doors proceedings and by blocking legislative action, this is the first time the President has made negative comments about cannabis in public....

    Christian ex-NFL star Tim Tebow is publicly dedicating his charitable foundation to help stop human trafficking. Tim Tebow is no stranger when it comes to charitable actions and earlier this year he helped deliver food to the families of the Navajo Nation. They were in dire need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Tebow stated, “I don’t know if an evil that is much darker than people that are trafficked. That’s why we’re not leaving the fight, only getting deeper. And when a young girl has been trafficked over and over and over again, finally realizes that she’s valuable. Not because...
  • Politico reports Chelsea Clinton and Ghislaine Maxwell were such ‘close friends’ they actually vacationed together

    Politico’s report on Maxwell, 57, focuses on how the daughter of the late British publishing mogul Robert Maxwell helped Epstein, the Brooklyn-born son of a New York City parks groundskeeper, gain access to social circles that allowed him to become friendly with two U.S. presidents, billionaire business moguls, America’s media elite and at least one member of the British royal family. Maxwell has not been criminally charged, but has settled two lawsuits filed by women who say she participated in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking, the New York Times reported last week. She has denied any wrongdoing. Politico said Maxwell first...

    Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby dismissed almost 600 criminal cases for what she determined are minor offenses. In other words, minor crimes are allowed in crime-ridden Baltimore. The minor crimes include, among others, drug possession, paraphernalia possession, prostitution (allows for trafficking), trespassing, minor traffic offenses, open container, rogues and vagabond, and urinating/defecating in public. Isn’t that lovely? She boasted that she already filed to vacate almost 5,000 Circuit Court and District Court marijuana convictions. But Circuit Court Judge W. Michel Pierson and District Court Judge Kathleen Sweeney completely shot down Mosby’s request to erase those convictions on April 26, The...

  • Parental Consent Laws for Underage Girls Seeking Abortion Help Fight Against Human Trafficking

    Daily Signal ^ | April 28, 2020 | Grazie Pozo Christie
    It is welcome news that Florida is now set to become the sixth state to require both parental consent and notice before minor girls can get an abortion. A bill mandating this has passed both houses of the state Legislature, and Gov. Ron DeSantis has promised to sign it. Ensuring that a child’s parents are involved before any medical or surgical procedure is performed on a minor patient makes sense in any state. In Florida, though, it makes extra sense. Florida is home to a huge immigrant population, many of them undocumented and vulnerable, and special care should be taken...

Two days ago the trailer for the upcoming movie based on Ballard’s experiences, “Sound of Freedom”, could be accessed and viewed easily on the web. Today it’s gone.

    Traffickers seek out victims from every background, pursuing any physical body, man, woman, teen, or child, that produces a profit. There are hundreds of thousands of trafficking victims in the United States alone, with millions of people victimized by traffickers globally. "Traffickers are utilizing technology to target victims. Because we have virtual identities and so much of our lives are public on social media, traffickers take advantage of that access to vulnerable people. Traffickers spend much of their time and resources searching for targets and building relationships to groom young people through private messages and apps," author and trafficking survivor...

The Christian documentary “dives deep into the sex trafficking industry in the U.S.” and features politicians, law enforcement, and experts in an effort to inform the American public.Corporal Alan Wilkett of Pasco County Sheriff's Office in Florida begins the...
