In total, the Trump administration has taken over 5,000 children from parents and guardians at the US-Mexico border and in ICE raids. Most have been lost to their families forever. At the beginning someone told me, “But DNA testing can sort them out.”
It sounded good, hopeful, but the fact is, I knew better, and that was when I only knew the number of missing kids as 500-1000. But I didn’t argue further. I knew that there were more taken than the news reports said, because I knew the nature of the administration. Just the other day, Trump explained something to Republicans in a closed meeting. Upon their leaving, they were told not to question what they had been, essentially, told to think. Not to debate it or discuss it or analyze it. One republican was so insulted that he immediately changed his mind about impeachment.
The killing of Iranians in the drone attack was Trump’s answer to the death of one man. When he asked Pentagon officials what his retaliatory options were, they knew he wanted to draw blood. So they laid several options out, and, thinking he’d never stoop to the drone strike, they included it in order to make the other options look better. They underestimated him, his reactionary nature, his need to show power, and, ultimately, his complete lack of vision. He chose the drone strike.
In response, Iran launched missiles at US facilities in Iraq. It was a warning that they were and are perfectly willing to go the diplomatic route, because it was immediately apparent that the attacks were not harmful. It was also a warning that Iran will not take anything more; they will fight.
As Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau claimed a Boeing 737 was shot down by Iranian missiles but it was an accident, clearer signs that it’s Trump’s fault, and that Trump has no conscience or empathy whatsoever were coming to light: the children of Hispanics crossing the border had been, essentially, kidnapped and falsely imprisoned, ever since his administration began. And it couldn’t have been far behind his stinging loss in several courts when he began to stop Muslims from entering through airports.
The day after the Iranian missiles hit, Trump tried to sound conciliatory in a live statement. It didn’t work; he just had to say “we have big missiles”, because with him, it’s always about size and power. If you’ve heard the jokes about him always bragging about size with everything from guns to missiles being the result of his feelings of inadequacy over his penis size, you can stop laughing now; it’s real.
But he also had to use speech inflection and some writer’s words to convey his own personal power. This, he has done, so often that the words are familiar to everyone on the planet by now. Constant complaining about how he’s been treated worse than any other president but that he’s “done more” is the sign of someone out of touch with reality. Poor beleaguered Donald Trump.
Several things to note here: the political right cries “bogeyman!” every time someone like an actor is accused of child abuse. Tom Hanks has been predicted by some idiot to be arrested soon in connection with the QAnon conspiracy. I’ll admit it; I have not read up on this particular conspiracy theory. But long story short, there’s a group of Illuminati who worships Satan and makes blood sacrifices with children. And what do they base this on? Well, for one, Tom Hanks has starred in at least two films which make one overt and one covert link to child abuse and sacrifice. The film “The Man With One Red Shoe”, “features red shoes which are made from the skin of babies,” Liz Crokin says. She brought up the film “Big” as well, in which Hanks plays a boy in a man’s body, who gets into a sexual relationship.
This is the kind of evil shit the right wing does, especially on the internet. Ann Coulter accused refugees of abusing children. She backed up Milo Yiannopoulos, but he’s right-wing. She never was all that bright anyway, but you see where this is going.
The surveillance camera recording of Jeffrey Epstein’s first suicide attempt is “missing”. Yeah, I’ll bet it is. Epstein was no more a suicide than Jimmy Hoffa was. Epstein knew names and had seen and recorded a whole bunch of horrible shit. All right-wing assholes. Doing god knows what.
It’s the idea that children are a commodity. The mechanic isn’t fully unknown to me; I know at least some of the tricks used to recruit sex slaves. Human trafficking is big business, but no one can say what kind of revenue it nets. Judging by the very nature of it, I’d say, just by money laundering and tax-free earnings, it’s a global giant that rivals at least a few big business endeavors. And the two countries most involved: the Russian Federation and the United States.
The easiest to kidnap are desperate Ukrainian teens, who, for decades following the breakup of the Soviet Union, have been treated horribly by their parents. After a certain age, the teens, most of which are girls, are considered an extra mouth to feed. Sometimes they’re pressured to find work. This leads them straight to the old “modeling agency” trick, and their photoshoots are basically catalog pictures. The youngest bear no markings, but when “bought” they’re branded with small tattoos which indicate who their owner is. I’m not talking sleeves and giant flowers here. It’s always small and in a place that can be hidden until they’re fully nude.
This subject may be disturbing indeed, but it bears mention because there can be no doubt that refugee children – part of the 5,000+ of them from Mexico and points south – have entered that nightmare world. Latin teen girls are highly prized as being “exotic” in “the trade”, and a sudden abundance of them, taken from their parents, is a dream for traffickers. These children and teens will never see their families again. Ever. Most will be given drugs, first to lower anxiety and render them pliant and trainable, but drugs for pain are also given to the ones who will do hardcore or dildo scenes in photo shoots and videos. Things way too big for them are inserted to make sure a man can penetrate them. This applies to preadolescents and teens. Don’t ask me what happens to the infants; no one talks about it. As for the teens? Lifelong drug addiction, disease, early death. Suicide is common. So are automobile accidents because trauma causes dissociation. They’ll also drive while considerably impaired. Overdose deaths are common too, as well as murder, homicides committed by handlers, pimps and owners. Should they be allowed to enter a relationship, that’s another danger. It rarely ends well.
What we’ve done as a country has brought a curse on us all. While the country was shammed by the Mueller investigation for two years, while Trump was entertaining sick people with his sick tweets and visits with Putin, this shit was going on. Sure, we knew about it. But we were lied to the whole time. I heard of protests, but the media stopped covering them or the protestors went home. Olberman declared Trump politically dead and went away. The slob with the baseball cap went on to make deals for films and TV. Jane Fonda keeps getting arrested at the Capitol for protesting climate change. Who’s grieving for the kids? Who’s demanding they be found? Sure, a court order to reunify families has been given. Sure. But 5,000+ children is impossible to locate, much less reunify with family. I’ve told you what some are doing. No way to tell how many. And the political right is not concerned. I’ve never seen a republican yet who gave a damn about those kids. Not one. They, meanwhile, deflect attention by accusing liberals like Tom Hanks of crimes so terrible that the trick works; in the eyes of many, he’s already been proven guilty.
And Jeffrey Epstein’s death? He was silenced for what he knew about the monsters on the right. Any evidence he had locked away is long gone.
And we wonder why the United Nations accused the United States of human rights violations. That’s how far gone we are.
