Seattle's mayor accused of child rape, police cover-up alleged by one of his victims

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray
Three men have now come forward and accused Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of sexually abusing them when they were children in the 1980's. Delvonn Heckard, one of the alleged victims, filed a lawsuit against the mayor this month, setting off a firestorm of controversy for the mayor now accused of pedophilia.

Heckard claims Murray abused him when he was a teen. According to the Seattle Times, the mayor "sexually abused the crack-cocaine addicted teen on numerous occasions for payments of $10 to $20" starting in 1986 when the boy was just 15 years old. "Two other men, Jeff Simpson and Lloyd Anderson, also have said Murray sexually abused them as teenagers while living in Portland in the early 1980s. They have not filed lawsuits."

Now, Heckard's lawyers are claiming the police are shielding the mayor from yet another scandal. The lawyers were provided screen shots from a computer-assisted dispatch (CAD) of at least 8 police officers to the mayor's home on the night of June 24th, the same night as the Gay Pride parade being held in the town.

The snapshots were provided by an anonymous whistleblower who said that Murray called Seattle's Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole to deal with a problem, sources say, involving a shirtless man demanding to get his clothes back. O'Toole reportedly responded to the scene and dealt with the matter quietly, without any police report being filed.

Comment: The above mentioned Times article lists the names of the five friends at Murray's house that night who provided the collective contradictory statement. Lyle Canceko, Roger Hyhus and Joe Loeffler, along with Adrian Matanza and Maggie Thomson, two of his staff members.

According to an August 25, 2015 article by NBC News, a Lyle Canceko was hired to Hillary Clinton's campaign as Northeast Political Director. HIs name appears several times in the Podesta/Clinton Wikileaks emails.

CEO Roger Nyhus is a career 'strategic' manipulator with long ties in business and politics in Washingon State, Washington D.C. and globally.

Joe Loeffler, prior to taking his position as an accountant with Nyhus, represented a 'collection of Washington States interests' in DC. In 2013, The Hill listed him as one of their '50 Most Beautiful', revealing comparisons to the child-friendly fictional characters, Superman and Harry Potter. In 2008, he also managed field operations for the Obama campaign.

Explosive new History Channel series finally exposes CIA drug trafficking conspiracy

Richard Nixon, in his effort to silence black people and antiwar activists, brought the War on Drugs into full force in 1973. He then signed Reorganization Plan No. 2, which established the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Over the course of five decades, this senseless war has waged on. At a cost of over $1 trillion — ruining and ending countless lives in the process — America's drug war has created a drug problem that is worse now than ever before.

This is no coincidence.

For years, those of us who've been paying attention have seen who profits from this inhumane war — the police state and cartels.

This horrendously corrupt and violent drug war has gotten so bad, that it is getting pushed into the mainstream. In an extremely rare move, A&E Networks, a subsidiary of ABC and the Walt Disney Company, will be addressing the government's role in the drug war in a four-part documentary series on the History Channel, titled, "America's War on Drugs."

Comment: Kudos to A&E for bringing this US government-created scourge to the light of day. Let's see if the shows actually get aired. And if they are, let them be seen far and wide - and let the anger and outrage of all normal people be felt by the pathologicals who are responsible.

Alarming voter irregularities reported across France as fears mount election being rigged

Less than 24 hours after the publication of the results of the first round of the presidential election in France, irregularities are being reported on both sides. In some places, there is fear of a rigged election.

In the aftermath of the first round of the French presidential election, irregularities were seen in broad daylight. On Monday, many media reported an unusual incident. In effect, thousands of voters were removed from the lists without their knowledge. The events took place in Strasbourg.

The information was confirmed by Strasbourg town hall which referred to 15,000 people being removed from the voters' lists in a city of 270,000 people. According to Le Monde, many voters were surprised to discover that they were no longer registered to vote in their polling stations.

Comment: Missing ballot boxes, duplicate votes, blocked voters; something sure does seem fishy.

Some patching up to do?
Tax officials have raided the grounds of two of English football's biggest clubs as part of a fraud investigation. Several arrests were made. HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) officers raided the stadiums of Newcastle United in the northeast of England and West Ham United in London. The raids are part of an investigation into alleged income tax and National Insurance fraud amounting to £5 million (about US$6.5 million), the BBC reports.

HMRC said in a statement that it had sent out more than 150 officers across the UK and France as part of the raids. "HMRC has arrested several men working within the professional football industry for a suspected income tax and National Insurance fraud.

"180 HMRC officers have been deployed across the UK and France today. Investigators have searched a number of premises in the north east and south east of England and arrested the men and also seized business records, financial records, computers and mobile phones.

Mexican illegal immigrant in US the lowest since 2009, policy changes have decreased numbers

On the lookout...
A new report has found that the number of unauthorized Mexican immigrants residing in the US has been steadily decreasing over the past 10 years, and they no longer make up the majority of illegal immigrants. The Pew Research Center released a report Tuesday that estimates the population of unauthorized immigrants living in the US to have decreased from its peak of 12.2 million during the recession in 2007 to 11.3 million in 2016.

For the first time, the population of unauthorized immigrants living in the US has fallen below the level in 2009, the end of the Great Recession, the report found. Pew included immigrants who entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas as unauthorized immigrants.


The Campus Left's Bad Manners

It snowed last Thursday (April 20) in Colorado.

It's not unusual for folks in the Centennial State to witness snow in April if the snowflakes are outside. But on this occasion, they appeared inside a university classroom, which, it turns out, is not unusual either.

Having been invited by the local chapter of the student organization, Turning Point USA, I arrived on the campus of the University of Colorado-Denver to deliver a lecture on "Lessons from Ancient Rome." The subject was 2,500-year-old history with a sprinkling of observations about what we today might learn from it all. Not exactly a hot-button topic such as abortion, immigration, Trump, or the most recent season of The Walking Dead.

What I saw from a minority of radicalized students in the audience, however, was an appalling microcosm of the smug, arrogant, self-righteous, politically-correct, campus insanity that you see on TV with increasing frequency these days.

French election reality: Macron booed and jeered in his hometown, where crowd chants 'Président Marine!'

Chaotic scenes broke out during a visit by French presidential frontrunner Emmanuel Macron to striking factory workers in his hometown of Amiens.

Macron was greeted Wednesday with jeers, boos and chants in favour of his far-right rival Marine Le Pen as he made a chaotic visit to the factory in northern France, after what Bloomberg said was "an ambush" by his nationalist rival Marine Le Pen forced him into a confrontation with some of her hardcore supporters.

Comment: So that's how popular Macron is in his hometown. Can you imagine how popular he really is elsewhere in France?

Only 18.3 percent of households said they intended to move back to the Fukushima prefecture.

Comment: Those that are refusing to go back are smart:


SWAT mistakes prayer group for gun thieves, raid wrong home, detain 14yo girl in bathroom, and send old lady to hospital

© The Free Thought Project
Guns Loaded? Check... Extra Ammunition? Check... Bullet-proof protective vests? Check... Right home address? Uh oh! In yet another SWAT Team flub, a home has been raided, and its occupants beaten. However, once again, the police went to the wrong address.

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office in Gaithersburg admits they got it all wrong when they burst into Israel Orellana's home in Montgomery County. Orellana has the same name as the man police were searching for in a gun theft case. But still, incredibly, Carroll County got a warrant to search the wrong address. Worse yet, the group of people gathered in the home were church goers who were spending the night socializing and praying.

Orellana told reporters, "I thought it was my mom's friends because sometimes they pray and they start dancing." But that night, it wasn't dancing which was disturbing his peace, it was officers of the peace doing so.
