At Least 10 Current & Former U.S. Mayors Accused Of Child Sex Crimes Since 2016

Former Mayor of Seattle Ed Murray recently stepped down after being publicly accused of sexual abuse for a fifth time, this time by his cousin. What’s worse is that Murray is one of several other Mayors who have been accused of child sex crimes in the past year alone.

Child sex crimes can be a difficult topic to discuss, but it’s important that we shed light on issues like pedophilia so we can prevent them from happening in the first place. In the past, numerous members of the elite, political figures, religious leaders, and other authority figures have abused their power and used it to rape and sexually abuse adults and kids, yet the public often turns a blind eye to it.

If we’re not willing to reveal the truth, or at least search for it, how can we expect to create positive change in the world?

With that, the Guardian released an article on Tuesday about the Mayor of Seattle’s recent resignation. Ed Murray stepped down as Mayor after being publicly accused of sexual abuse for a fifth time, this time by his cousin.

What’s worse is that he is one of several other mayors who have been accused of child sex crimes in the past year alone. Are these really the people we want governing society, leading us toward a “brighter tomorrow”?

Which Mayors Have Been Accused of Child Sex Crimes?

Let’s start with the allegations made against Ed Murray, who resigned as Mayor of Seattle earlier this week (effective 5pm Wednesday).

Murray has been denying these claims, stating, “While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our city government to conduct the public’s business.”

Murray’s first cousin once removed, Joseph Dyer, was the fifth person to accuse him of sexual abuse, claiming that he had a history of this. Dyer explained that Murray came to live with his family when he was 13, and he used to repeatedly sexually abuse him, to the point where he had to fake sleeping in hopes that he wouldn’t touch him.

Prior to Dyer’s accusation, four other men came forward claiming that Murray sexually abused or raped them when they were younger. One of the cases was actually verified by old files that cited a child welfare investigator’s conclusion that Murray had sexually abused a man named Jeff Simpson in the 1980s when Murray was his foster parent.

The Mayor of Stillwater, New York, Rick Nelson, also resigned this September following his arrest on child pornography charges. Though there are few details surrounding the charges, large publications like the Washington Post at least verified his arrest regarding child pornography, though according to the Times Union, Nelson has faced numerous accusations of child sex crimes and inappropriate behaviour before.

The mayor of a city in Nebraska, Dwayne Schutt, was just charged with “intentional child abuse and four counts of child sexual abuse.” Despite these allegations made by the victim, who is now 18 but was 14-years-old at the time of the abuse, Schutt still remains Mayor.

Last year, former Ohio Mayor Richard Keenan allegedly admitted to repeatedly having sex with a child over the course of two years starting when she was only 4 years old. Keenan apparently confessed his sexual assaults to numerous people, including his wife and a pastor. Keenan was charged with eight counts of gross sexual imposition, eight counts of rape, and four counts of attempted rape.

Anthony Silva, former California Mayor, was charged last year with providing alcohol to minors, playing strip poker with them, and then filming it. Investigators found more than 20 photos and four videos that showed him playing strip poker with camp counsellors and minors, including a 16-year-old boy. However, Silva is now facing a slew of different charges involving his alleged act of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars that were meant to help underprivileged children.

In March of this year, Oregon Mayor Kenneth Lewis Barrett was arrested for soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl, who was actually working in an undercover sex sting operation. Barrett was also charged with online sexual corruption of a child and unlawful possession of a firearm.

A Georgia Mayor, Christopher Wright, was tied up in a child molestation case last year and was accused of raping a 12-year-old child. During the trial of a man facing child molestation charges, one of the victims actually named the Mayor as one of the perpetrators. Wright pleaded no contest and did not have to serve any prison time, though he is on probation.

Darral Walker, the former Mayor of Rockdale, Texas, was indicted last summer for indecency with a child, but did not have to register as a child sex offender. Walker engaged in sexual contact with a child younger than 17 years old by touching his genitals, which Walker actually admitted to but claimed that it was for “educational purposes.” Since when is it okay to sexually assault a minor just because the “intention” behind it had nothing to do with sexual gratification?

Former Millbrook, New York, Mayor Donald Briggs was charged with two counts of a criminal sexual act late last year. Briggs allegedly had inappropriate sexual contact with a minor under the age of 17.

Former Mayor of Clayton, California, Dale Kenyon was indicted last week due to allegations of sexual acts against a minor. Kenyon allegedly engaged in sexual acts with a child who was 14 years old at the time, and the abuse allegedly took place from 2009 to 2012.

This is a long list of current and former Mayors of different U.S. cities involved in sexual misconduct and abuse of minors. This begs an interesting question: Are we allowing the wrong people to come into positions of political power, or are rape, pedophilia, and sexual misconduct far more prevalent within society than we think? Perhaps it’s a bit of both.

A Long History of Pedophilia and Sexual Misconduct in “Authority” 

This isn’t the first time people were concerned over sexual abuse and pedophilia by government officials and the elite. 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 elite. 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 DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children (source).

The fact of the matter is that high-level political and elite involvement with pedophilia and sex slaves is nothing new. If you know anything about the government programs MK Ultra or Monarch Mind Control, it’s easy to imagine how not only unwilling adults, but children can be manipulated and brainwashed into thinking that pedophilia and sex trafficking are okay. Either that or they’re too terrified to come forward.

There has also 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. If this is true, then the U.S. government isn’t just part of the problem, they’re at the very heart of it.

Former writer for the Huffington Post and Business Insider David Seaman has posted numerous YouTube videos thoroughly outlining the emails and the link to these pizza parlours and the pedophilia symbolism found within all of it, which you can check out here.

For more information about these subjects, I’d strongly suggest reading the following CE articles:

Final Thoughts 

It’s incredibly important that we shed light on these topics and work to uncover the truth, despite how “dark” these subjects may seem or how much we don’t want to believe that such things happen in our midst. It’s always difficult for society to accept when authoritative figures like government officials, priests, etc. are involved in corruption and crimes, especially when it comes to children.

However, just because something is uncomfortable to talk about, doesn’t mean we don’t need to talk about it. Sometimes it’s the more uncomfortable subjects that are exactly the topics we should talk about — after all, how else can we expand our comfort zones if we don’t challenge them? I encourage you to share information with others, even if it’s something they may not want to hear.

If we simply dismiss information because it’s uncomfortable to address, then witnesses won’t feel confident in coming forward. We want to create an environment in which victims feel that they can share their experiences with others rather than one that encourages them to hide their truths.

Breaking news out of Toronto as celebrations were taking place to mark the NBA championship the Toronto Raptors won last week. Shots have been fired during the Raptors parade causing panic which sparked a stampede of people leaving the area. Some people reported being trampled during the panic.

So far, 2 people have been arrested and police say 2 people have suffered injuries, but they are not life-threatening.

As we know more we will report, but this will surely spark some sort of ‘gun regulation’ discussion.

Videos below show scenes of what happened in Toronto.

WHAT?! Marineland Is Officially Exempt From Canada’s Ban On Whale & Dolphin Captivity

Published

on

Image: 123RF

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently passed a bill that bans the capture and captivity of whales and dolphins. Marineland, a huge whale/dolphin entertainment park, has been exempted from the law that makes it illegal to do so.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives human beings the right to hold such majestic, innocent, benevolent and intelligent animals captive? What gives them the right to separate them from their families? Why do we treat other beings on Earth the way we do?

Animal captivity is extremely cruel and heartbreaking. Imagine what another intelligent, benevolent race would think if they came across our planet and observed what we do. My guess is that they’d be terrified to attempt to interact with us simply based on how we treat other sentient, benevolent beings on this planet.

Canada recently passed a legislation that completely bans keeping whales, dolphins and porpoises in captivity for entertainment, trade, possession, capture and breeding. The bill (S-203) is also known as the “Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act,” and it was approved by the House of Commons after they voted in favour of the bill, which was first introduced in 2015.

The only time capture is permitted in Canada is for rescue purposes or, unfortunately, for scientific purposes.

According to Green Party Leader MP Elizabeth May, “Canadians have been clear, they want the cruel practice of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity to end… With the passage of Bill S-203, we have ensured that this will happen.”

More than 20 marine scientists and stakeholder organizations endorsed the bill, which quite frankly should have happened long ago. These beings, or any beings for that matter, do not belong in tanks where they are constantly suffering. These are extremely emotional, social, empathetic and brilliant beings. What we’ve done to them and continue to do to them is beyond horrid, to be blunt.

This bill was supposed to phase out this type of captivity in Canada, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, as Marineland Canada’s whales will remain at the park following the page of S-203. Already captive whales will remain in captivity, which means approximately 60 animals will live out their entire lives at Marineland and at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Canadian law now states that it’s a criminal offence, as it should be, to keep a cetacean in captivity, but it looks like Marineland Canada has been exempted from this. It does not seem, however, that they can bring more animals into the park, but they’ll more than likely begin breeding programs to keep their business going for as long as they can.

According to Marie Holer, a representative from Marineland Canada:

We’ve been working to evolve Marineland for over a year and have made many positive changes to the park, including the new educational presentation on marine mammals, the introduction of the Marineland Express and our Polar Splash pad that will open in July. Since opening day, we’ve seen our largest crowds in years and are thrilled that so many people support us in our work. We’re looking forward to enhancing our education, conservation and research focus in the short term to highlight our commitment to marine mammals.”

Is this truly a good step? As long as these animals are in captivity, there can be no care given to these animals. Why do we as human beings feel we can imprison animals like this is simply for entertainment? It feels heartbreaking, confusing, and makes deeply question the state of our connection to wildlife.

Have we really become that disconnected from life?

It’s not all bleak though! Things are obviously improving, and that’s become quite evident thanks to the vast amount of activism over the years that has finally resulted in the passing of the legislation mentioned in this article, but we still have a long way to go.

Remember, these animals have never really shown any type of aggression towards humans, except in captivity.

The Takeaway

Why do human beings go to the circus? Why do they go to places like Marineland? Is it because human beings are terrible? No. It’s simply because many of us have been desensitized and have not quite questioned this in many ways. Which is OK! That’s part of the process. When it comes to animal captivity, mass marketing and scientific justifications have allowed our minds to be manipulated. They’ve made us think that animal captivity is okay, when clearly we would not like to be confined against our will, so why do it to others?

I believe that we’re all born as extremely understanding beings, and that humans are a very empathetic race. I believe that our feelings and our ability to experience empathy are what makes us special. I also believe that these traits and characteristics left us for a while, but they are now returning and we are beginning to “think” from our hearts again.

This is why awareness regarding animal captivity has increased and will continue to increase around the globe until it is completely banned everywhere, or until people simply stop showing up to these places and providing them with profits.

Video: The Most Significant Leak About Extraterrestrial Craft Just Went Public

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently leaked document has exposed notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, who was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space craft.

  • Reflect On:

    UFOs used to be a conspiracy, now they are quite mainstream and their existence is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence. The next question is, where are they from, and who made them? Will this information be suppressed too?

A quote I love to use in many of my articles comes from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. He said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)

The thought that governments and/or rogue agencies around the world have been involved in taking down and even possibly revere engineering possible extraterrestrial craft is nothing new. Available to the public are statements from the highest ranking positions within government and the military, and there are also declassified documents that hint toward the same idea.

For example, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer once told the public that the protocol with regards to UFOs was to “shoot first and ask questions after.” Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13 uncovered documents showing that the Royal Air Force was desperate to capture one of these UFOs and reverse engineer it. You can see those and read more about it here.

Most Significant Leak?

Check out our video segment on this new leak, or read more below.

More recently, what some are calling the most significant leak in UFO history has been made public – and it may be one of the strongest documents linking UFOs to extraterrestrials.

The document goes into detail about a meeting that was had between Dr. Eric Davis, and Vice Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson. Who is Eric Davis? He is a very well known scientist, and quite the legend. For many years he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS)(Owned by Robert Bigelow), the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Austin, Texas; and he is the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics who consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.

Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 1999 to July 2002, prior to that he was the Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The document is in the form of notes that were written by Davis after their meeting that took place in 2002, regarding a series of events that took place during the spring of 1997, when Wilson was Deputy Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Since the leak of this document, there has been no denial publicly by Davis regarding the authenticity of these documents, and the focal point of the document is about a meeting (and what happened after that meeting) that took place in 1997 between UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer, Admiral Wilson, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) and other high ranking individuals within the military. This meeting was spoken about by Dr. Greer and Dr. Mitchell nearly four years prior to the leak of these documents, so it’s all very interesting. In the episode, we actually play footage of Mitchell confirming and talking about this meeting as well as Greer.

The documents point towards a program that involves the crash retrieval of extraterrestrial craft, that are “not made of this earth, not made by man.”

You can view the entire document here.

if you missed the video embed above of myself and Joe Martino having a discussion about these documents in detail, you can watch it here.

The Takeaway

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The fact that we are not alone has huge implications from science to technology, to history and possible metaphysical/spiritual implications as well. It really opens up Pandora’s Box, and it is one out of many examples that are allowing us to see how humanity has been conditioned to think a certain way, limit our reality, despite all of the evidence, that conflicts with long held belief systems.

At the end of the day, the idea that there are other highly advanced, intelligent lifeforms in the universe, or multiverse, and possibly other dimensions that are and have been visiting our planet, and others, for a very long time is most likely just the very tip of the ice-berg.

This is not a new discovery. We have had this type of knowledge of UFOs and ETs for a very long time, culture and elites have simply suppressed this knowing.
