Republicans are ‘actual demons,’ ‘zombies,’ says New York Times Nobel Prize-winning columnist


New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman has doubled down on denouncing the Republican Party as “bad people,” insisting that there’s nothing wrong with “demonizing” opponents who “actually are demons.”

Krugman refused to budge from his declaration that “Republicans are bad people” during an interview with PBS’ Firing Line on Thursday. When interviewer Margaret Hoover pressed the Nobel Prize-winning economist on the risks inherent in “demonizing” political opponents, he only doubled down, taking his ad hominems into the mythical realm.

Is it demonizing if they already actually are demons?

While Krugman stressed he was referring to “professional Republicans,” and not “someone I might meet over lunch who declares herself a Republican [who] can perfectly well be a perfectly nice person,” he stood firm in his attacks on a party he described as “irredeemable, devoid of principle or shame” in a Times opinion column last month.

Nor were demons the only horror-movie monster Krugman saw in the GOP. He likened debating Republicans to “arguing with zombies,” declaring that “zombie ideas about fiscal policy, about climate change, about a whole range of ideas – healthcare policy – have completely taken over official Republican discourse.”

While he admitted the party’s calcified platform “doesn’t mean that every Republican in America is like that,” he maintained that “to be a serving Republican member of Congress right now” supporting the Trump administration “makes you a bad person.”

Krugman has been wearing his hatred for Republicans on his sleeve for years. Regular readers of his column will recall that he has blamed Republicans for everything from climate change to antisemitism, and has insisted that “good people can’t be good Republicans” since at least 2018.

Eventually, however, even an Ivy League intellectual runs out of names to call one’s enemy, which is perhaps why Krugman called for the party to be “dismantled and replaced with something better” in last month’s ‘Republicans have no shame’ oped.

For someone so passionate about Republicans, Krugman had little interest in who would win the Democratic presidential nomination, telling Hoover it made “almost no difference” who ended up running against Trump. At the same time, he praised candidate Elizabeth Warren, his personal friend, as a “progressive.” Warren was a Republican until two decades ago. Hoover neglected to ask the Princeton economist if he makes the sign of the cross before meeting Warren for lunch.

Dutch Ministry of Justice covered up ‘serious crimes’ by asylum seekers. Rape, battery, murder, etc. listed unspecified as “Other”


Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reveals attempts by the Ministry of Justice and Safety to obfuscate the amount of crime committed by asylum seekers. In an article published on 16 May, the paper writes that despite promises of openness, the Ministry has attempted to hide serious crimes by misnaming them ‘other incidents’. Those ‘other incidents’ include rape cases and child abuse.

This deliberate attempt at misleading the public comes after De Telegraaf had to resort to legal steps in 2017 to get data on crimes committed by asylum seekers. Then, the Ministry denied keeping a separate registration, claiming it had no figures to release. In reality, the police kept statistics, with De Telegraafclaiming the sheer volume of the files kept the authorities from releasing the information.

In what the paper dubs a ‘painful affair’, two years later the Ministry is up to its old tricks again. The aim is yet again to obscure: it is the Ministry that grouped a 1000 ‘other crimes’, and yet again De Telegraaf had to resort to police sources to fill in the deliberate blanks.

Of the 1000 ‘others’, 79 were sexual offences, ranging from sexual assault, to sexual abuse of children, to rape, to possession of child pornography. Police were called for 51 cases of battery, 31 cases of murder or manslaughter. There were 5 counts of kidnap or hostage taking, 4 times it was for human trafficking, and 73 times there was a disturbance of the peace.

The Ministry, meanwhile, professes its innocence. A spokesperson blames the police for not giving exact enough data. But the fact that the police has the information, implies that the Ministry could have demanded the information, according to Jasper van Dijk, MP. He concludes that “it is remarkable that the Ministry didn’t report this [want of information], this is a lack of transparency. We need to know what we are debating.”

The 1000 ‘other’ crimes paint a less than sterling picture of the situation in and around asylum locations. In total, the police registered 4600 crimes committed by asylum seekers in 2018. Shoplifting (2030 cases) was popular, followed by pickpocketing, stealing purses, physical abuse and making threats.

CLINTON TIES: Arkansas Democrat Arrested For Distributing Child Porn Worked With Hillary, Met Bill

By Patrick Howley

Harold “H.L.” Moody, an Arkansas government youth program coordinator who was arrested for allegedly participating in child porn video chat room sessions, oversaw ticket sales for a fundraiser featuring presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in his capacity as a Democrat Party official.

The media’s virtual blackout of the Harold Moody story is disturbing, considering the ties between Clinton and Moody, who were photographed together. Moody has met both Bill and Hillary Clinton, according to documented evidence.

Harold Moody was arrested in November for distribution and possession of child pornography after he was caught repeatedly in chat rooms in which he and others were sharing child pornography, including at least one video of adults having sex with a child. Moody pleaded not guilty.

“I’ve heard of White privilege but never Perv privilege – i am not the Juke Box at Waffle House…I do not play on demand…” Moody told fellow users in the chat room in response to video requests.

Moody was spokesman for the Democratic Party of Arkansas during the 2016 election and was previously the chairman of the Pulaski County Democratic Committee.

The Clinton Foundation set up a health initiative in Pulaski County, Arkansas, where Moody worked for Pulaski County Youth Services. The Clinton Foundation also co-presented an award to the head of Pulaski County Youth Services, where Moody was working at the time of his arrest. A separate Pulaski County Youth Services employee was also arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year old.

Moody served as Pulaski County Youth Services’ special events coordinator. He was fired not only for child porn but also for smoking meth at his desk.

In November 2017, another employee of Pulaski County Youth Services was arrested for the alleged late-night rape of a 14-year old boy in a parked car.

In his capacity as state Democrat Party spokesman, Moody oversaw the selling of tickets to a Hillary Clinton fundraiser in July 2015.

The Times Record reported in 2015: “State Democratic Party spokesman H.L. Moody said the party sold all 1,600 floor seats for the $200-a-plate dinner, then began selling $15 arena seats. He estimated the audience at over 2,000 people — former state Highway Commissioner John Burkhalter said onstage that more than 2,500 were present — and said the party had raised about $450,000, enough to cover its entire annual budget. On Friday, Trump spoke to about 1,000 people in Hot Springs. He said during his speech that the Democratic Party had cut ticket prices to lure people to its event. Moody disputed that claim. “I reject the notion that we reduced ticket prices,” he said. “The floor seats sold for a higher ticket price than we’ve ever sold them before, and they also sold faster than they’ve ever sold before, and that’s why we opened the arena seats. The original plan did not call for arena seats, but we had to open them up because there was so much demand for tickets.’”

Moody praised Hillary Clinton in an interview with the Arkansas Times after Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 election and said that Bill Clinton’s presidential election in 1992 inspired him to get into politics.

“I think Secretary Clinton summed it up best when she said (at a charity gala on Nov. 16) that there were days when she wanted to curl up and never leave the house. I totally get that, but, as somebody that pays the electric bill by working in politics, I just don’t have that luxury. Also, the longer I am lying down and feeling bad, the longer they can say the DPA is dead, and that’s simply not the case,” Moody said in the interview.

“But then in 1992, when [Bill Clinton], who I had met at the duck calling contest in Stuttgart many times, was running, it suddenly became, almost in a way, personal for me. I think I was 12 or 11 at that point, so there wasn’t much I could do other than watch and learn. What I remember most is on election night, when [Clinton] won, I saw the live television footage of downtown Little Rock and the celebration and I knew I should have been there, that that was exactly where I was supposed to be. I guess since then I’ve been trying to get back to that place,” Moody said in the interview.

Clinton’s links to Pulaski County and Pulaski County Youth Services are numerous.

Pulaski County Youth Services executive director Jamie Scott was honored as a 2017 Class of Presidential Leadership Scholar by the Clinton, Bush, Bush, and LBJ Centers, according to the Clinton Foundation website. Scott also served on Governor Beebe’s task force for abused and neglected children.

Pulaski County Youth Services managed a $16,000 grant to implement an after-school cooking workshop in Arkansas schools after three University of Arkansas Clinton School students won a commitment for the program at the Clinton Global Initiative. “The Blue & You Foundation grant funds will be managed by Pulaski County Youth Services,” according to a Clinton School news item in 2010.

The former program development coordinator at Pulaski County Youth Services was also a Clinton Health Matters Initiative partner, according to LinkedIn.

The Clinton Presidential Center and Pulaski County Youth Services offered diaper pick-ups for people supposedly impacted by a  government shutdown, as promoted by the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Matters Initiative laid out a “Central Arkansas Blueprint for Action” that confirmed the Health Matters Initiative is based in Pulaski County:

“Geographically located in Central Arkansas, Pulaski County is known as the largest county and forms the core of Little Rock, North Little Rock, and Conway, one of Arkansas’ eight Metropolitan Statistical Areas it is defined by the United States Census Bureau, as a six-county area in central Arkansas, and anchored by state’s capital and largest city. With such a rich history of southern hospitality, culture, and diversity, Pulaski County has an evolving cadre of bustling economic developments, a rapid influx of diverse populations and cultures, a thriving community for the arts and sciences, and a deep appreciation for the natural state which 386,299 Pulaski County residents call home,” according to the Clinton Foundation.

“Due to Pulaski County’s central location, and the extensive network of the CHMI partners, the outcomes of the “Blueprint for Action” will be realized throughout Central Arkansas and impact communities, families, and individuals beyond the geographic boundaries of Pulaski County,” according to the Clinton Foundation.

Illegal Alien Charged With Over 100 Child Sex Crimes

Screen Shot 2019-04-03 at 6.30.32 PM

Registered sex offender was deported in 2005

Wednesday, April 03, 2019

A previously-deported illegal alien was arrested in Louisiana and charged with 100 counts of possession of child pornography, one count of production of child pornography, and one count of sexual battery of a juvenile under the age of 13.

Miguel Martinez, 44, had been deported in 2005 and is a registered sex offender in the sanctuary state of California, according a press release issued by the Louisiana Department of Justice.

“Internet crimes against children continuously inflict damage,” said Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. “Every time one of these videos or images is viewed, the child is re-victimized.”

Homeland Security has reportedly placed a detainer on Martinez and it is expected he will face additional charges pending further investigation.

AG Landry used occasion to issue a distress signal to Washington and voice his support for the building of a wall on the Southern border.

“This arrest should serve as a wake-up call to Congress,” Landry said. “By not securing our borders and properly vetting those coming into our Nation, we have seen lives lost and destroyed.”

“Illegal immigration has real-life consequences – countless numbers of needless crime victims, including too many Louisiana families and children. For their sake – I again urge Congress to realize the national emergency we have at our Southern border, support President Trump, build the wall, and help us make our communities safer.”

Illegal Arrested on Child Porn Charge in New York


An illegal alien from Mexico who lived in New York has been arrested and charged with several crimes related to possession of child pornography, according to the Department of Justice.

“Anildar Valdimir Roblero-Gomez, age 25, a citizen of Mexico who had been living in Ellisburg, New York, was charged in United States District Court with transportation and possession of child pornography,” the DOJ said in a statement.

Since the suspect allegedly uploaded graphic images of children to a social networking site, thus reaching an audience in many states, the charges against him are federal and include transportation.

“The criminal complaint filed against Roblero-Gomez alleges that in September 2018, he transported child pornography by uploading several images and videos depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct to Facebook.  Further, Roblero-Gomez possessed a number of graphic images and videos constituting child pornography on two cellular telephones in his possession at the time of his arrest,” according to the statement.

If found guilty, the suspect will face a stiff sentence.

“If convicted, Roblero-Gomez faces a mandatory minimum term of 5 years and a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000.00 and a term of supervised release of at least 5 years and up to life, as well as mandatory registration as a sex offender.”

Illegal Busted for Selling Child Porn in Louisiana

By Peter D’Abrosca

An illegal alien in Houma, Louisiana was arrested and charged with multiple crimes related to child pornography, according to that state’s attorney general.

“Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry today announced the arrest of an illegal alien living in Houma on numerous counts of Internet crimes against children,” said a press release.

“Jose Juan Hernandez, 42, illegally living in Houma, was arrested on 1 count of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (Distribution) and 17 counts of Pornography Involving Juveniles Under the Age of Thirteen (Possession),” the release continued. 

Hernandez has been booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center and ICE has placed a detainer on him.

Landry blasted the United States’ broken immigration system.

“Yet again, our office has arrested another illegal immigrant accused of exploiting children,” he said. “This man who should not be in our country has been picked up for possessing and distributing pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13.”

“Too many Louisiana families have become victims of crime because of our Southern border in name only,” he continued. “So I again urge the Congress to support President Trump, build the wall, and help us make our communities safer.”

Saturday, President Donald J. Trump made a deal with Democrats to reopen the federal government for a period of three weeks to continue negotiating for the wall, while federal government employees get paid. In the event that Congress will not fund the wall, he will likely declare a national emergency to get it done.

Report: Facebook-Owned WhatsApp Used to Spread Child Pornography

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg declined an invitation to attend the hearing, sending a vice president named Richard Allan in his place

By Tom Ciccotta

Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp has a child pornography problem, according to several reports.

According to a report from TechCrunch, mobile messaging application WhatsApp is being used to spread child pornography around the world. The app features end-to-end encryption, which means that WhatsApp, and its parent company, Facebook, do not have access to user conversations.

TechCrunch’s investigation revealed that Facebook could easily do more to police the spread of this content on the platform. Although messages on the platform are private, the names of the groups in which the child pornography is spread are not. A simply scan of the existing WhatsApp groups led TechCrunch’s team to several that blatantly advertise their focus on child pornography.

TechCrunch’s investigation shows that Facebook could do more to police WhatsApp and remove this kind of content. Even without technical solutions that would require a weakening of encryption, WhatsApp’s moderators should have been able to find these groups and put a stop to them. Groups with names like “child porn only no adv” and “child porn xvideos” found on the group discovery app “Group Links For Whats” by Lisa Studio don’t even attempt to hide their nature. And a screenshot provided by anti-exploitation startup AntiToxin reveals active WhatsApp groups with names like “Children ” or “videos cp” — a known abbreviation for ‘child pornography’.

Facebook doubled their content moderation team from 10,000 to 20,000 in 2018. However, WhatsApp is monitored by a separate, smaller, staff that is inadequate for the app’s 1.5 billion users.

In a statement, WhatsApp claimed that they are working to prevent child sexual abuse on their platform. They claimed that they have banned 130,000 accounts for such violations in the past 10 days.

WhatsApp has a zero-tolerance policy around child sexual abuse. We deploy our most advanced technology, including artificial intelligence, to scan profile photos and images in reported content, and actively ban accounts suspected of sharing this vile content. We also respond to law enforcement requests around the world and immediately report abuse to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Sadly, because both app stores and communications services are being misused to spread abusive content, technology companies must work together to stop it.

In early December, Tumblr announced that they would be banning all adult content in an effort to prevent child sex abuse.


Former Dem Comms Director Arrested For Child Porn

National media silent as another Dem embroiled in scandal

Big League Politics – DECEMBER 7, 2018

The former communications director for the Arkansas Democrat Party was arrested and charged with several crimes related to possessing and distributing child pornography in late November.

“A federal investigation into certain online child exploitation chatrooms has resulted in the arrest of Harold “HL” Moody, Jr.,” said a Justice Department press release. “According to the complaint affidavit, on August 29, 2018, Moody was present in a chatroom when child pornography was being displayed. Agents observed Moody in the chatroom, via his webcam. Moody’s face was clearly visible and the undercover agent observed what appeared to be an office setting in the background.”

The story has received zero attention from the mainstream press, but according to Arkansas OnlineMoody was a Democratic Party employee just two years ago.

“He was hired by [Pulaski County] after a year-and-a-half stint as communications director for the Democratic Party of Arkansas,” the report said. “Before that, he had been chairman of the Pulaski County Democratic Party for two years.”

According to the Justice Department statement, Moody not only viewed, but distributed child pornography.

“On September 7, 2018, Moody was again visible on camera and observed in the chatroom actually distributing child pornography,” the report said. “Among the images that Moody distributed was a video that depicted a nude, adult, male performing oral sex on two nude, pre-pubescent males.”

Two days later he was doing the same thing, according to the release.

Federal agents also found methamphetamine in Moody’s home.

Moody is currently being held without bail while he awaits a “tentatively scheduled” January trial. Due to the serious nature of the charges and length of potential punishment, he reportedly posed a flight risk.

“Distribution of child pornography carries a penalty of not less than 5 years and not more than 20 years imprisonment, not less than 5 years to life of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000. Possession of child pornography carries a penalty of not more than 10 years imprisonment, not less than 5 years to life of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000,” the Justice Department release said.
