NXIVM Founder Plotted To Install Sex Cult Member Into ‘High-Level Political Office’

Founder of the sex cult group NXIVM plotted to install a female “lieutenant” into a top political office, according to one of his members’ court testimony.

Lauren Salzman, a member of leader Keith Raniere’s inner circle known as DOS, was tasked with recruiting “people of power and influence” into NXIVM, she said to a Brooklyn court on Monday.

Raniere hoped “that we might have a DOS candidate in a high-level political office,” Salzman said, adding that the prospective candidate would have to be “highly collateralized,” meaning NXIVM would have needed blackmail material on her to control her.

Additionally, Salzman testified that Raniere wanted to expand the New York-based sex cult into a nationwide enterprise, and have new members initially use masks and pseudonyms a la Eyes Wide Shut to make it more accessible.

“I think he envisioned it would have thousands or almost a million people,” Salzman said. “He was pushing me specifically to have 100” slaves.

It’s no secret as to which political party Raniere’s candidate would have been.

Several high-profile members of NXIVM, such as billionaire heiress Clare Bronfman, donated thousands to Hillary Clinton in 2007, and have ties to 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Additionally, Salzman confirmed that the sex cult itself illegally raised donations for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential run.

Lauren Salzman pleaded guilty to enslaving women for the group, while her mother Nancy Salzman pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.

The trial against Raniere began earlier this month, where he’s pleaded not guilty to a variety of felony charges including racketeering conspiracy, identity theft, extortion, forced labor, money laundering, wire fraud and sex trafficking.

Press access may be curbed at hearing on Epstein sex abuse

court hearing on whether to unseal sensitive documents involving the alleged sex trafficking of underage girls by Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein — and the possible involvement of his influential friends — will play out in a New York City courtroom next week.

But it may happen behind closed doors, with the news media and public barred — at least in part.

An attorney for lawyer Alan Dershowitz wrote a letter to the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Tuesday, asking whether the media should be excluded from the proceeding because his oral arguments on behalf of his client could contain sensitive information that has been under seal.

The appeals court had not responded to his concern as of Friday, but if the hearing is closed during his lawyer’s argument, it would represent the latest in a long history of successful efforts to keep details of Epstein’s sex crimes sealed.

Controversial Sex Education Bill Would Change The Way Schools Teach Topic

State lawmakers are discussing a controversial sex education bill. The proposal would change the way public school students learn about the topic.

As it stands right now, the bill will get rid of a waiver letting public charter schools pick out their sex education criteria. The proposal also funds a grant program for schools that lack resources to teach human sexuality.

The bill expands on LGBTQ relationships and would ban the abstinence-only approach. Schools will have to accept the more comprehensive curriculum or teach nothing at all.

Andrew Sullivan: The Nature of Sex

It might be a sign of the end-times, or simply a function of our currently scrambled politics, but earlier this week, four feminist activists — three from a self-described radical feminist organization Women’s Liberation Front — appeared on a panel at the Heritage Foundation. Together they argued that sex was fundamentally biological, and not socially constructed, and that there is a difference between women and trans women that needs to be respected. For this, they were given a rousing round of applause by the Trump supporters, religious-right members, natural law theorists, and conservative intellectuals who comprised much of the crowd. If you think I’ve just discovered an extremely potent strain of weed and am hallucinating, check out the video of the event.

I’ve no doubt that many will see these women as anti-trans bigots, or appeasers of homophobes and transphobes, or simply deranged publicity seekers. (The moderator, Ryan Anderson, said they were speaking at Heritage because no similar liberal or leftist institution would give them space or time to make their case.) And it’s true that trans-exclusionary radical feminists or TERFs, as they are known, are one minority that is actively not tolerated by the LGBTQ establishment, and often demonized by the gay community. It’s also true that they can be inflammatory, offensive, and obsessive. But what interests me is their underlying argument, which deserves to be thought through, regardless of our political allegiances, sexual identities, or tribal attachments. Because it’s an argument that seems to me to contain a seed of truth. Hence, I suspect, the intensity of the urge to suppress it.

The title of the Heritage panel conversation — “The Inequality of the Equality Act” — refers to the main legislative goal for the Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBTQ lobbbying group in the US. The proposed Equality Act — a federal nondiscrimination bill that has been introduced multiple times over the years in various formulations — would add “gender identity” to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, rendering that class protected by anti-discrimination laws, just as sex is. The TERF argument is that viewing “gender identity” as interchangeable with sex, and abolishing clear biological distinctions between men and women, is actually a threat to lesbian identity and even existence — because it calls into question who is actually a woman, and includes in that category human beings who have been or are biologically male, and remain attracted to women. How can lesbianism be redefined as having sex with someone who has a penis, they argue, without undermining the concept of lesbianism as a whole? “Lesbians are female homosexuals, women who love women,” one of the speakers, Julia Beck, wrote last December, “but our spaces, resources and communities are on the verge of extinction.”

If this sounds like a massive overreach, consider the fact that the proposed Equality Act — with 201 co-sponsors in the last Congress — isn’t simply a ban on discriminating against trans people in employment, housing, and public accommodations (an idea with a lot of support in the American public). It includes and rests upon a critical redefinition of what is known as “sex.” We usually think of this as simply male or female, on biological grounds (as opposed to a more cultural notion of gender). But the Equality Act would define “sex” as including “gender identity,” and defines “gender identity” thus: “gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or characteristics, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.”

What the radical feminists are arguing is that the act doesn’t only blur the distinction between men and women (thereby minimizing what they see as the oppression of patriarchy and misogyny), but that its definition of gender identity must rely on stereotypical ideas of what gender expression means. What, after all, is a “gender-related characteristic”? It implies that a tomboy who loves sports is not a girl interested in stereotypically boyish things, but possibly a boy trapped in a female body. And a boy with a penchant for Barbies and Kens is possibly a trans girl — because, according to stereotypes, he’s behaving as a girl would. So instead of enlarging our understanding of gender expression — and allowing maximal freedom and variety within both sexes — the concept of “gender identity” actually narrows it, in more traditional and even regressive ways. What does “gender-related mannerisms” mean, if not stereotypes? It’s no accident that some of the most homophobic societies, like Iran, for example, are big proponents of sex-reassignment surgery for gender-nonconforming kids and adults (the government even pays for it) while being homosexual warrants the death penalty. Assuming that a non-stereotypical kid is trans rather than gay is, in fact, dangerously close to this worldview. (Some might even see a premature decision to change a child’s body from one sex to another as a form of conversion therapy to “fix” his or her gayness. This doesn’t mean that trans people shouldn’t have the right to reaffirm their gender by changing their bodies, which relieves a huge amount of pressure for many and saves lives. But that process should entail a great deal of caution and discernment.)

“Kill Your Foster Parents”: Amazon’s Alexa Talks Murder, Sex

Amazon’s Alexa is shocking its owners with conversations about sex acts, dog defecation, with one device telling a customer to “kill your foster parents.”

These outbursts are allegedly “episodes” that are meant to make the device a better communicator, according to Reuters:

The episodes, previously unreported, arise from Amazon.com Inc’s strategy to make Alexa a better communicator. New research is helping Alexa mimic human banter and talk about almost anything she finds on the internet. However, ensuring she does not offend users has been a challenge for the world’s largest online retailer.

…Amazon customers can participate by saying “let’s chat” to their devices. Alexa then tells users that one of the bots will take over, unshackling the voice aide’s normal constraints. From August to November alone, three bots that made it to this year’s finals had 1.7 million conversations, Amazon said.

The project has been important to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who signed off on using the company’s customers as guinea pigs, one of the people said. Amazon has been willing to accept the risk of public blunders to stress-test the technology in real life and move Alexa faster up the learning curve, the person said.

Amazon’s virtual assistant made news earlier this week after the device sent over 1,000 private recordings to a completely random person.

A spokesperson for the commerce giant said the incident was an “isolated” error, Fox reports:

The unidentified user had asked the voice assistant to play back recordings of his own activities made by Alexa, and in doing so, he was able to get 1,700 audio files from a complete stranger after Amazon sent him a link, the German computer magazine c’t reported.

An Amazon spokesman said Thursday: “This unfortunate case was the result of a human error and an isolated single case.”

The person who received the stranger’s recordings claimed he initially got no reply from Amazon when the user informed the company that he was given the wrong files.

Infowars.com has long reported on Big Tech’s “smart” devices having the capabilities to record people that are willingly bringing them into their homes.

Democrats Skewer Kavanaugh While Paying Off Sex Crimes

The self-righteous Democrats have managed to, at the very least, stall potential Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Minority leader Chuck Schumer is pushing for an FBI Investigation into the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford, claiming she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh at a High School get together.

However, Ford is stalling her testimony while Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s high school friend and only witness to the alleged assault, flatly refuses to testify.

And, even Diane Feinstein, the Senator responsible for entering the allegations into the nomination process, has her doubts.

Since 1997, $17 million tax dollars have gone to pay off the victims of Democrats like John Conyers, Al Franken, Robert C. Scott, and Ruben Kihuen.

Of course, there were Republican predators too but I mention the Democrats because they are using their exclusive legislative power to smear a qualified Supreme Court Justice nominee with evidence that even they admit is questionable.

They do this while simultaneously presiding over a rigged sexual assault payoff system funding their own crimes with our tax dollars and insisting an outright biased FBI do their dirty work.

Meanwhile, the House and Senate are in gridlock over updating what should be now known as the Congressional Unaccountability Act.

It is hypocrisy at the highest level.

New Jersey Hotline For Clergy Sex Abuse Claims Flooded With Calls, Officials Say

A hotline created to document reports of clergy sex abuse in New Jersey is receiving so many calls that some can’t even get through. The round-the-clock call center opened last week as part of a new investigation by Attorney General Gurbir Grewal.

Fred Marigliano says it took him more than 50 years to speak out about being abused by his priest when he was 11-years-old.

“All I wanted to do was not be raped again,” he told CBS2. “Sometimes I still have nightmares.”

Harvey Weinstein arrested on rape, criminal sex act charges

Harvey Weinstein surrendered Friday to face rape and other charges from encounters with two women, wearing both handcuffs and a strained smile as officers led him from a police precinct to court.

“You sorry, Harvey?” came a shout from a throng of media as the once powerful movie mogul walked into a lower Manhattan courthouse, his head bowed with the cuffs behind his back. Asked “What can you say?” he mildly shook his head and softly said “No.”

It marked the first criminal case against Weinstein, coming seven months after the allegations destroyed his career and set off a national reckoning over sexual misconduct known as the #MeToo movement.

Chile’s bishops resign en masse over sex abuse cover-up

Every Chilean bishop offered to resign Friday over a sex abuse and cover-up scandal, in the biggest shakeup ever in the Catholic Church’s long-running abuse saga.

The bishops announced at the end of an emergency summit with Pope Francis that all 31 active bishops and three retired ones in Rome had signed a document offering to resign and putting their fate in the hands of the pope. Francis can accept the resignations one by one, reject them or delay a decision.

It marked the first known time in history that an entire national bishops conference had offered to resign en masse over scandal, and laid bare the devastation that the abuse crisis has caused the Catholic Church in Chile and beyond.

Sex Workers To Expose Politicians For Passing Anti-Trafficking Bill

Sex workers have threatened to expose members of Congress for passing the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA), which they claim has destabilized and demoralized individuals who work in the the sex trade.

Rumors of a Google Doc aimed at outing certain politicians who solicit sex services are circulating social media.

“Hey politicians, watch out…” a New York City sex worker tweeted last week.

“Just sitting here waiting for all those government officials to realize how hard they’ve made it for themselves to get no-strings-attached booty. Better start liking sex with your wives again,” tweeted another NYC sex worker.
