Last year, a 19-year-old woman, who asked to be referred to as Jasmine, shocked the nation by stating that approximately 30 police officers from departments around the Bay Area sexually assaulted her or had some sort of sexual relations with her. Since then, seven of these officers were charged and several higher-ups either left or were fired.

The case is still being discussed in the media because a settlement was recently reached, and just last week the Oakland police department held a private ceremony honouring many officers caught up in the scandal.

Jasmine was apparently abused as a 12-year-old and then forced into the underground world of sex slavery. She worked as a sex slave for many years, and then finally broke free at the age of 16 with an Oakland police officer, or so she had hoped. Unfortunately, the cycle of abuse continued for Jasmine, but it wasn’t just with one police officer.

You may assume that these individuals who were supposed to be protecting her have since been put behind bars, but this is not the case. Though some faced charges, the city agreed to settle Jasmine’s claim to the tune of $1 million with no admission of liability. What’s worse is that rather than firing, counselling or demoting these officers, the Oakland police actually held a secret ceremony on July 14 (with no media coverage) celebrating many of the police officers accused of mishandling the case.

Details About the Oakland Police Sex Scandal

The scandal was unearthed in September 2015 when an Oakland police officer committed suicide and left a note that detailed he had a sexual relationship with a young sex worker. The scandal broke wide open shortly afterwards when Jasmine came forward and told a reporter that she had sex with over a dozen members of the Oakland Police Department in addition to other officials working at other law enforcement agencies in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

Her abuse began in February 2015, so keep in mind she was underage. She met one of the cops when he saved her life from her former pimp, but soon he introduced her to other cops and they began trafficking her amongst their ranks. According to state law, three of the officers committed statutory rape, many participated in human trafficking, and all of them knowingly solicited prostitution (source).

One officer was sentenced to three years of probation and was told he can have no contact with Jasmine, and another officer’s case is set to be dismissed next year if he successfully completes his probation. Two more officers are facing charges for having oral sex with Jasmine as a minor. Police Chief Sean Whent resigned from his position just after Jasmine was interviewed.

The city decided to settle her claim at $989,000. Though the Oakland police department has faced significant public scrutiny, it does seem a little like they’re being let “off the hook” when it comes to the judiciary system. Many of the officers accused will see little to no punishment for their crimes, despite the pain they caused Jasmine.

“The settlement occurred with no admission of liability, but obviously, if you pay $1 million, you figure you got some responsibility,” civil rights attorney John Burris, who represented Jasmine, said in a statement.

In addition, some of these officers are literally being rewarded, even after they allegedly engaged in misconduct or mishandled this particular case, or were involved with other sex scandals. Oakland police held a “secret ceremony” in celebration for several officers who received promotions and awards for their “bravery and service.” However, the officers were welcomed by two dozen angry protestors, as some of the officers being honoured were those involved with Jasmine’s case.

One of the officers, Roland Holmgren, was promoted to captain, and he was accused of “mishandling” Jasmine’s case. This isn’t the first Oakland police scandal he’s been caught up in; according to the East Bay Express, he’s been involved in a number of police misconduct scandals over the past 20 years. And Holmgren wasn’t the only one involved with the case who was awarded, as several other officers were either promoted or rewarded for their services, despite having either turned a blind eye to this case or been involved with misconduct or mishandling it.

In May 2017, Jasmine’s lawyer, Mr. Burris, actually called the officers a “cabal” that “took advantage of a young woman.”

“People were passing her around as if she was a kickball or something,” Burris said.

This sounds eerily similar to the types of activities that take place at elite sex parties, especially since he literally referred to them as a cabal. It seems as though the judiciary system often has difficulty punishing those with authority, giving them privileged treatment and allowing them to bend the rules, even if they are known sexual offenders and predators.

If we can’t trust law enforcement to actually do their jobs and properly investigate situations like this, even if they implicate their colleagues or bosses, then who can we trust? The sad part is that the government is no stranger to these types of scandals, as it’s at the very core of the establishment.

The U.S. Government and the Cabal’s Ties to Sex Rings

There has been a lot of speculation lately on child sex rings being used by the U.S. government. You may be familiar with the PizzaGate scandal, which allegedly unearthed a very high-level elitist global pedophile ring the U.S. government was involved in.

It emerged when Wikileaks released tens of thousands of emails from the former White House Chief of Staff under Bill Clinton, Jon Podesta, who also served as Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. It’s because of these emails that many claimed Jon Podesta was a part of these child trafficking rings as well.

Below is a video of award winning American journalist Ben Swann explaining the Pizzagate controversy in detail:

This isn’t the first time people were concerned over sexual abuse by government officials. Ted Gunderson, former FBI special agent and head of their L.A. office, worked to uncover years’ worth of information on high-level pedophilia, sexual abuse, and satanic rituals performed by the government and the elite (or the cabal). In my opinion, Ted Gunderson is a wonderful place to start your research on this subject. You can read more about that in our CE article here.

Former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney also knew about the government’s relationship to human trafficking, and she actually addressed it in 2005. She grilled Donald Rumsfeld on military contractor DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children (source).

Another individual involved in high-level trafficking was Jeffrey E. Epstein, a member of the financial elite infamous on Wall Street. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from girls as young as fourteen. He served just over a year in jail and became a registered high-risk sex offender.

According to former U.S. State Department official Steve Pieczenik, the Clintons and many more “have been a major part and participant of what’s called the Lolita Express, which is a plane owned by Mr. Jeff Epstein, a wealthy multi-millionaire who flies down to the Bahamas and allows Bill and Hillary Clinton to engage in sex with minors — that is called Pedophilia.” (source)

Prominent names who boarded the Lolita Express include former President Bill Clinton, Naomi Campbell, Kevin Spacey, Prince Andrew, Larry Summers, and other political figures, all of whom are listed on the flight logs. Even the current U.S. President, Donald Trump, has ties to Epstein, and was in fact accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at multiple different elite sex parties with Epstein. You can see the full logs here.

“Bill Clinton . . . associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” explained Conchita Sarnoff, an investigative journalist who, despite being bribed to stay silent, risked her life to expose the brutal reality of human trafficking. Sarnoff also wrote a book on the Epstein case called TrafficKing. “Why would a former president associate with a man like that?” Sarnoff asked. To read more about Epstein’s case, check out our CE article here.

Numerous victims involved in elite sex rings and occult sex rituals have come forward, exposing high-level corruption in regards to human sex trafficking and pedophilia. One of the more recent victims to come forward is a woman named Kendall who was sold at birth into a powerful, high-level international sex ring. You can read more about her story in our CE article here.

Final Thoughts

It’s clear that sex scandals are occurring left, right, and centre within the establishment. We need to stop placing authority on a pedestal so we can see that this type of preferential treatment will not help us achieve peace in society. Just because you’re a higher-up in the government or within a well-respected institution doesn’t give you the right to commit these violent acts, and our judiciary system desperately needs to reflect this.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
