Will The Other Shoe Ever Drop In The Jared Fogle Investigation?

Investigative reporters on the trail of pedophile rings involving the most powerful and influential people have long been demonized and marginalized by detractors in the mainstream media who want you to believe such tales are nothing but the fabricated fantasies of unstable conspiracy theorists. Yet evidence of its existence abounds all around us if people only open their eyes.

As reporters from all over the nation descended on Indianapolis this week to cover the arrest and initial appearance of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle on charges he paid for sex with underage girls in five-star New York hotels and received and distributed child pornography produced by the person he entrusted to run a charity whose mission was combating childhood obesity, the public witnessed no perp walk. Fogle was driven into a private entrance of the federal courthouse and walked out of the same courthouse building wearing an ankle bracelet he'll wear for an undetermined time while on house arrest prior to his sentencing. Not a reporter noticed the unusual treatment afforded Fogle as the federal prosecutor assured the public his "celebrity status" would not serve as a shield to his prosecution when "such despicable crimes are perpetrated against children."

Despite the federal prosecutor's assurances, we know his colleagues in the Justice Department covered up a large human trafficking case involving a New York billionaire, Jeffrey Epstein, who supplied untold numbers of young, female victims to some of the world's most wealthy and powerful men, including former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew. In an unusual arrangement, federal prosecutors negotiated an unprecedented agreement with his powerful attorneys that allowed Epstein to be prosecuted under relatively minor state law offenses in Florida where he served less than two years in prison, while sealing from public airing  tens of thousands of documents gathered by investigators that would prove the vast reach of his pedophile network.

Remarkably, the fact that Epstein was even prosecuted represented progress in the right direction. Who remembers the DC Madam and her infamous black book?Federal prosecutors went after Deborah Palfrey ferociously to protect the identities of the rich and powerful to whom she supplied young women. Palfey was found hanged at her Florida home and her infamous black book has long been forgotten. Dead women tell no tales.

Federal investigators went to extraordinary lengths to cover up a vast VIP pedophile ring in the 1980s that involved some of the nation's most powerful men. The so-called Franklin Scandal involved the use of high-up military and intelligence agencies to traffic young boys and girls to our nation's capital where they provided sexual services to senators, congressmen, cabinet members, ambassadors and, according to some of the victims, a future president, George H.W. Bush, and a future vice president, Dick Cheney. The only real punishment meted out in the Franklin Scandal was to the victims, who were either prosecuted on specious grounds or died under unusual circumstances. The front man for the pedophile ring, Lawrence King, an Omaha banker, was prosecuted for unrelated financial crimes. A documentary that exposed the truth about this VIP pedophile ring was blocked from airing on the Discovery Channel after enormous pressure was exerted on network executives.

The mainstream media's curiosity with Jared Fogle doesn't extend far. Russell Taylor and Jared Fogle are just bit players here, if useful distractions. Federal prosecutors can lay claim to taking child and human trafficking seriously at the same time it protects the real family jewels from a public airing. Fogle may have paid for sex with young girls in five-star hotels, but who are the real forces behind the establishment of these honey pots used to ensnare people at times of convenience, such as occurred with the former New York prosecutor, Eliott Spitzer, who made life very uneasy for people engaged in widespread financial crimes for a brief period of time. Those truly responsible always seem to elude accountability. It is only wishful thinking to believe  the other shoe will drop this one time.

Slavery takes many forms, including underage sex trafficking . It is taking yet a new form today; the call for enslavement by Christian conservatives of illegal immigrants by the State. “What’s wrong with slavery,” they now say. Its allowed in the bible.

Virtually every 2016 GOP presidential candidate has recently appeared on the Iowa talk radio show of far-right extremist Jan Mickelson, who in the past has declared his allegiance to the Confederacy and called AIDS “God’s punishment for homosexuality.” Mickelson has now unveiled his plan to literally enslave undocumented immigrants.

Mediaite has the text:
“As of this date… 30 to 60 days from now anyone who is in the state of Iowa that who is not here legally and who cannot demonstrate their legal status to the satisfaction of the local and state authorities here in the State of Iowa, become property of the State of Iowa. So if you are here without our permission, and we have given you two months to leave, and you’re still here, and we find that you’re still here after we we’ve given you the deadline to leave, then you become property of the State of Iowa. And we have a job for you. And we start using compelled labor, the people who are here illegally would therefore be owned by the state and become an asset of the state rather than a liability and we start inventing jobs for them to do. You need to go home and leave this jurisdiction, and if you don’t you become property of the United States, and guess what? You will be building a wall. We will compel your labor. You would belong to these United States. You show up without an invitation, you get to be an asset. You get to be a construction worker. Cool!”

When a caller told Mickelson that his plan sounds like slavery, he responded, “What’s wrong with slavery?” Praise Jesus!

After watching this video, and being a victim of abuse as a child, I followed the Hassert story and In my opinion! the way our Republican leaders in Congress are acting in regard to doing as Obama says, it seems as if Obama has the goods on these individuals, and sex abuse is part of the blackmailing!
If former speaker of the house did it, whats to say the current leaders aren't doing the same thing.
Does anyone else think the behavior of the Senate and House leaders is strange, way above politics?

When I first saw this report, I didn't have time to complete the read or watch the video... but I knew I must return to do both. So glad I did... so glad I am a regular reader.

Allow me to add my thanks to you for getting this information out on your blog. I am now "awake" and it was 9-11 that woke me up. "No one is more a slave than the person who thinks he is free" and that phrase described me prior to 9-11. I no longer believe one word that comes from the White House, the Congress, any "federal so-called authority, or from my state and especially from most any of my city officials.

I remember watching a televised news report where Bill Clinton rebuked a comment questioning 9/11 and the alleged 757 jet hit at the Pentagon by saying in a very emotive, deliberately theatrical cadence, and glare while saying slowly saying, "How dare you? How dare you."... it was the same dishonest tone of voice when Bill Clinton denied having sex with "that woman" Monica Lewinsky.

Could it be that an evil invades the soul of some, esp those in power, causing deep cravings from the debase and unnatural? Some in the early church noted this as Christian and pagan civilizations clashed: Eusebius the historian obsrved: "Surely there is good cause, when one considers it, to wonder why of old, when the daemons tyrannized over all the nations, and men paid them much worship, they were goaded by the gods themselves into furious wars against each other—so that now Greeks were at war with Greeks, and now Egyptians with Egyptians, and Syrians with Syrians, and Romans with Romans, and made slaves of each other and wore each other out with sieges, as in fact the histories of the ancients on these matters show—but that at the same time with our Saviour's most religious [and peaceful] teaching the destruction of polytheistic error began to be accomplished, and the dissensions of the nations at once to find rest from former troubles? This especially I consider to be a very great proof of the divine and irresistible power of our Saviour.

And of the benefit which visibly proceeds from His doctrines you may see a clear proof, if you consider, that at no other time from the beginning until now, nor by any of the illustrious men of old, but only from His utterances, and from His teaching diffused throughout the whole world, the customs of all nations are now set aright, even those customs which before were savage and barbarous; so that Persians who have become His disciples no longer marry their mothers, nor Scythians feed on human flesh, because of Christ's word which has come even unto them, nor other races of Barbarians have incestuous union with daughters and sisters, nor do men madly lust after men and pursue unnatural pleasures, nor do those, whose practice it formerly was, now expose their dead kindred to dogs and birds, nor, strangle the aged, as they did formerly, nor do they feast according to their ancient custom on the flesh of their dearest friends when dead, nor like the ancients offer human sacrifices to the daemons as to gods, nor slaughter their dearest friends, and think it piety.

For these and numberless things akin to these were what of old made havoc of human life.

'It is recorded, for instance, in history that the Massagetae and Derbices deemed those of their kindred who died a natural death most miserable, and for this reason hastened to sacrifice and to feast upon the aged among their dearest friends. The Tibareni used to throw their old kinsmen alive down a precipice; and the Hyrcanians and Caspians threw them out to birds and dogs, the former while alive, and the latter when dead. But the Scythians used to bury them alive, and to slaughter over their funeral pyres those who were most dear to the deceased. The Bactrians also used to cast those who had grown old alive to the dogs.' 1

These however were customs of a former age, and are now no longer practised in the same manner, the salutary law of the power of the Gospel having alone abolished the savage and inhuman pest of all these evils.
