One-Day Human Trafficking Sting Operation Locates 123 Missing Kids In Michigan

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The US Marshals Office conducted the 1-day 'Operation MISafeKid' in Wayne County, Michigan last week. It sought to identify and recover missing children from the area with an emphasis on locating victims of sex trafficking.

  • Reflect On:

    Is there reason to believe that some parts of our authority are earnestly making an effort to tackle and dismantle global human trafficking rings and find and protect victims? How much optimism should we have that things are really changing?

In a press release from October 3rd, the US Marshal’s Service made the following announcement under the title ‘New USMS Child Recovery Unit Recovers 123 Children During 1-Day Operation’:

Detroit, MI – The U.S. Marshals Service – Detroit Missing Child Recovery Unit, U.S. Marshals Service Sex Offender Investigations Branch, Michigan State Police and law enforcement officers from Wayne County agencies participated in Operation MISafeKid, a missing juvenile sweep to identify and recover missing children from the area with an emphasis on locating victims of sex trafficking.

What I found of particular interest, in this case, is the emphasis being made that this operation was conducted in a single day for the purposes of ‘locating victims of sex trafficking.’ They implied that they were hoping to burst in on sex trafficking rings, rather than simply locate missing children in a general sense. The fact that 123 children were located in a single day means that there must have been a great many agents working together on this operation. In fact, the press release lists over 20 agencies/police departments that participated in the sting operation.

Some Children Were Not Lost

The point must be made that, upon closer examination, not all of the 123 children were actually lost. An unspecified number were reported as missing at one time and were still listed in police computers as missing. Police determined that their guardians failed to notify police when the children returned home. That information was not highlighted in the U.S. Marshals Service’s press release, which, in this regard, appears to have been worded to embellish the results of the initiative.

But I believe that this is not the fundamental issue to focus on. What is most important, in my mind, is whether or not this was a genuine effort on the part of the US Marshals Service to locate victims of child sex trafficking, to get information about and possibly apprehend child sex traffickers, and to most emphatically give hope to victims of child sex trafficking who may be able to seize opportunities to escape. This is given credence by the following statement in the press release: ‘The message to the missing children and their families that we wish to convey is that we will never stop looking for you.’

Orders From The Top

These words seem to echo those of President Trump and his administration, which finally appears to represent a presidency committed to dismantling global trafficking rings that are so powerful and pervasive that previously cowed administrations only paid lip service to the issue, if not overtly providing cover for these deeply entrenched criminal organizations.

Executive Order #13818 entitled ‘Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption’ issued by Donald Trump in December of 2017 has been written directly to facilitate the efforts of the Department of Justice and law enforcement agencies to pursue and prosecute transnational trafficking rings. In this video from the Human Trafficking Summit in February 2018, Jeff Sessions confirms the strong commitment and details the strong actions already taken by this administration:

We work in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and our partners in Mexico, through a bilateral, anti-trafficking initiative aimed at dismantling transnational trafficking networks, because human trafficking, of course, is often a transnational crime. The day I was sworn in as Attorney General, President Trump sent me an executive order to dismantle these trans-national criminal organizations. It is a high priority of ours. You can be sure this includes human trafficking rings.

In fiscal year 2017, the Department of Justice secured convictions of nearly 500 traffickers. We brought a record number of cases last year, charging more than 550 defendants, some of those are still pending, these cases involved all forms of human trafficking…We’ve seen increases in cases filed, defendants charged, and defendants convicted, and we’re going to keep working at it.

I hope that it will shine a light on a problem that is all too often kept in the shadows.

Fight For The Narrative

The video below gives a good idea of the method and scope of Operation MISafeKid, where Sergeant Sara Krebs of the Michigan State Police Missing Person’s Unit explains the main point of emphasis of the one-day sting operation was “…not only to recover children that have gone missing, but the underlying tone in this was to find the hidden victims of sex trafficking.”

The video explains that once a child is recovered, the next step is to ask a series of questions to find out if they were being groomed for sex trafficking. “Who did they stay with, did somebody pay for them to stay somewhere, did they do favors for them, did they give them drugs?”

It was reported that of the children found, 3 of them showed evidence of involvement in trafficking, and case files were opened for each. It was not reported whether any traffickers were identified, found, or if leads to trafficking rings were obtained. But this is likely to be the type of information that would need to be kept secret.

Clearly, it seems, there was a desire to put out the message that there is an earnest effort to uncover and dismantle human trafficking rings and locate missing children, a message that does not seem to be ringing through the airwaves of mainstream media. A search for this story on the internet did not come up with the usual ‘high-search-priority’ suspects led by CNN and co. Most of the coverage was from local affiliates such as the video above, which begs the question: does mainstream media not want to report on efforts to seriously challenge human trafficking rings, or get the message out to victims of child sex trafficking to have hope because these committed organizations ‘will never stop looking for you’? I guess the question answers itself.

The Takeaway

Though I could be wrong, it seems like things are changing ‘out there’, and concrete attempts are being made by positive forces, as Jeff Sessions said, to ‘shine a light on a problem that is all too often kept in the shadows.’ Our own initiative to shine light upon the darkness, not only in the outside world but upon our inner world, is an important part of our self-discovery as individuals and as a collective, and is inevitably needed if we are to create a world from the highest vision of our desires.

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.
