For 20 years, a Connecticut-based prostitution ring trafficked in mentally disabled young men, court papers revealed this week.The ring catered to wealthy male clients in Connecticut and Massachusetts who paid $250 for sex, according to court papers cited in the News-Times.At least 15 young men in their early 20s were exploited in the ring, authorities allege.The young men suffered illnesses that include schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; some were severely disabled and living in group homes, authorities allege.The ring had been under investigation since January 2016; the first big break came last year with the arrest of Danbury resident Robert King, described by Connecticut prosecutors as running the operation.King would befriend vulnerable young men, including one he found rummaging through a dumpster, according to court papers cited by the News-Times.He would then allegedly get them hooked on cocaine and heroin, pushing them to prostitute themselves to pay for their mounting drug debts.“I’m just a gay guy trying to help people,” King claimed to Danbury detectives, when they approached him in August 2016, according to one affidavit.King has been charged with prostitution and witness tampering.Two alleged clients have been arrested and charged with patronizing a trafficked person.One, Bruce J. Bemer, of Glastonbury, is the owner of the Waterford Speedbowl and New England Motor Sports. He allegedly told authorities that King had been sending young men to him for sex for more than 20 years.
Kendall claims she was sold by her parents at birth to a powerful international sex trafficker. She says when she wasn’t locked in a cage with other kidnapped children, she was flown all over the world on private planes, being sold to wealthy and powerful men. Kendall says as she grew older, she would often escort these rich and prominent clients to black tie affairs and high profile sporting events. From doctors and politicians to even law enforcement, Kendall says she was taught how to act and dress in order to never raise suspicion. For the first time since she says she left her life of sex trafficking three years ago, Kendall tells her story and explains why she is still petrified that the boss of this operation, whom she calls “the man who owns her,” will find her and bring her back.
New crescent moon calls for ritual with photo, tarot card, candle, feather, ashtray.
WASHINGTON – Among the angry liberals who refuse to accept the 2016 presidential election results that put Donald Trump in the Oval Office are witches who will be gathering at midnight on Sunday to cast spells.
They already tried last month to conjure up magic to remove him from office.
Witches, exorcists and occultists say they again will cast a “binding spell” designed to “bind Donald Trump and all who abet him.”
Anti-Trump occultists performed the “mass spell” against the president last month under the hashtag #BindTrump. Witches nationwide shared photos and videos on Twitter of them placing their hex on Trump.
They say they will repeat the ritual on March 26 and on every crescent moon “until Donald Trump is removed from office,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
Tomi Lahren won’t be appearing on Glenn Beck’s multiplatform network, TheBlaze, anymore.Sources say Lahren — who was suspended last week after flip-flopping on abortion and declaring herself pro-choice — has been banned permanently.“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one Beck insider told me.Fans think Beck — once a big Ted Cruz backer — has lost his conservative bona fides. He went on Samantha Bee’s TBS show in December and apologized for being divisive in the past.“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country,” the Beck associate told me. “He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”“Beck’s trying to reinvent himself,” a former insider told me. “But he’s burned too many bridges.”TheBlaze, founded seven years ago in Dallas, once had offices in New York and 300 employees. Now, the New York office is closed and the staff is half that size.While the number of paying subscribers (once said to be 300,000) is kept secret, TheBlaze.com attracted 29 million unique visitors per month in 2014, and only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017, for a loss of more than two-thirds of its traffic.Jerry Del Colliano, founder of Inside Radio, said Beck’s syndicated talk radio show has slipped as well from No. 3 to No. 5.“Beck has lost his mojo, and TheBlaze helped him lose it,” Del Colliano said. “It’s hard to figure out where he is coming from.”
CINCINNATI — At least two people opened fire inside a crowded nightclub early Sunday morning, killing one person and wounding more than a dozen others.Police said there is no indication the shooting at the Cameo club was terrorism related. Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said the motive is still unclear, however. Authorities also didn’t immediately have any suspects in the 1:30 a.m. shooting on a busy weekend night.Capt. Kim Williams said there was “just a lot of chaos, obviously, when shots were fired.”“Saturday night, it is a very young crowd. We have had incidents here in the past, but this is by far the worst,” she said.Several officers were working security detail at the club and performed first aid and tried to revive the person who died, Williams said.Fifteen people were shot. Some of them drove themselves to area hospitals and others were taken by ambulance.Authorities are interviewing several witnesses, but Williams said a lot of the club goers had left.“The biggest problem when you have a large crowd like this and the shots ring out, a lot of the witnesses disappear,” she said.Authorities were asking anyone with information to come forward. Williams said investigators are checking to see if surveillance cameras were working.WLWT reported that at least one person was in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Arm yourself for the most crucial battle of all. “Spiritual Warfare” is available now at the WND Superstore.
Those participating in the spell are asked to burn a picture of the commander in chief and visualize him “blowing apart into dust or ash.”
The spell also requires an unflattering photo of Trump, a tarot card, a tiny stub of an orange candle, a pin or small nail, water, salt, a feather and an ashtray and to calls on spirits to ensure President Trump will “fail utterly.”
There is even a Facebook page networking those who want to participate in the ritual.
One of the participating groups, with members donning crushed-velvet cloaks and false eyelashes, is Witches Against Fascist Totalitarianism.
Slate reported one event featured “metallic ovary temporary tattoos,” smudge sticks, “cleansings” and “witchy jewelry.”
Prior to winning the presidency, occultists tried to use black magic against Trump.
The far-left publication Jezebel published a story in September 2015 about “Brooklyn Witches” cursing Trump because they “wholeheartedly believe that Trump and the rest of the GOP are garbage.”
The women performed a series of curses on the then-Republican presidential candidate and recorded footage of the rituals. The spells including a hex to silence him, another to protect people of color from his evil and a hair-loss curse.
“Even if the hexes don’t work,” a witch named Yeni told Jezebel, “the video shows Mexicans that they’ve got plenty of good people on their side.”
But Trump’s election victory seems to deny the power of the curses and black magic, observers noted.
When the rituals were held a month ago, WND reported Christian leaders believe these kinds of spiritual threats should be taken seriously, condemned and countered.
Extraordinary events predicted centuries in advance are unfolding now. Here is your guide to the incredible prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Don’t miss the bestselling sensation from one of America’s most prolific and beloved pastors. “When the Lion Roars: Understanding the Implications of Ancient Prophecies for Our Time” by Carl Gallups, available now in the WND Superstore.
Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries said the left’s open embrace of demonic imagery is revealing.
“It shows that the level of hatred against Donald Trump is generated by Satan himself,” she said. “Donald Trump is not a perfect man. But he is trying to stop the runaway freight train of evil that has existed for eight years emanating out of Washington and the Democratic Party.
“The left is mesmerized by issues that tear down and that grieve the heart of God. Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to neutralize these people and their agenda, but he is trying to make significant inroads to stop the tremendous slide to the dark side in America. He has some solid Bible-believing Christians at his side. Together they can make a huge difference and repair some of the damage done by evildoers.”
Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, author of “God’s Day Timer,” cited Deuteronomy 18:10-12 to argue those who use occult practices are an “abomination” in God’s sight, according to the Scriptures. He agreed with Markell that such practices are becoming increasingly common.
“We are living at the time of the coming of the Messiah,” he warned. “The world will be getting worse until Messiah’s return. We are to always pray for those who are our leaders. Not only should Christians pray, but they should get actively involved.”
Pastors such as Carl Gallups, author of “When the Lion Roars,” urge Christians to join the effort.
“America’s born again believers should cover President Trump in prayer,” Gallups said. “It’s obvious that the demonic realm is stirred by his presence. It’s also obvious that the antichrist agenda of the globalist community is going berserk over a Trump presidency. These are simply signs to those of us who know God’s word that President Trump is being used by the Lord in these prophetic times. Pray for him. Pray for our nation. And, then, get on with the work of the Kingdom.”
Karl Payne, the former chaplain of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and an expert in exorcism who penned “Spiritual Warfare” as a guide for Christians dealing with unseen forces, denounced those behind the spiritual attack on Trump as “so ideologically driven, they do not see straight.”
But he also warned occult forces are being increasingly normalized in popular culture through an anti-Christian media.
“It is not possible to watch major television stations, cable stations or movies without being inundated with shows and movies on the paranormal,” he said. “To think that the constant exposure to these types of shows will not have an impact on those watching them is as naïve as it is to believe people can watch and play hours of video games glorifying murder and mayhem and it not make an indelible impact on their minds.”

A Texas pastor claims an “anointed cake” baked by hookers had the power to turn a gay bar owner straight.In a rambling Periscope video, Lance Wallnau, who is an evangelist from Dallas, responded to a viewer’s request for deliverance for her gay son.Wallnau, who has 200,000 Facebook followers, said last week that he heard a story about the gay and “very adamantly anti-Christian” man who owned the bar.According to Wallnau, the bar was frequented by reformed hookers, who decided to bake a cake for the owner.“They basically prayed over the cake,” he said. “It was an anointed cake.”Before the owner could finish eating the cake, he had undergone a transformative experience.
“The power of God hit him while he was eating the cake,” Wallnau said.The pastor told viewers that the man was baptized and ultimately the “spirit that was working him got broken off.”However, he admitted that an anointed cake might not be the answer for everyone.“This is crazy,” he said. “Now, I’m not saying this is going to work for you.”The “God’s Chaos Candidate” author has made some controversial claims before. Last month, he said that the media used “mind control and witch craft,” according to Right Wing Watch.He has also claimed that President Trump’s victory was a “manifestation of an enraged demon through the populace.”
A TERRORIST turned Westminster Bridge into a bloodbath by mowing down at least 20 people — with one witness calling it “a scene of absolute horror”. Screaming tourists ran for their lives as the Hyundai Tucson mounted the pavement and started ploughing through crowds.
The intense French thriller follows a young girl who gets an all-consuming appetite for human flesh.Moviegoers nauseated by French director’s Julia Ducournau’s cannibal-infused Raw don’t need to worry about throwing up in their popcorn bags — at least at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.The cinema is offering custom-made barf bags to customers before the movie begins playing. An usher hands out the bags after explaining that, due to the graphic gore in the movie, several viewers have fainted, while at least one person vomited.”One of the staff at the Nuart took up the initiative to make the barf bags out of paper lunch bags. What a fun idea! I remember that used to be done with some horror releases in the 1970s,” said Mark Valen, a film buyer with Landmark Theatres and who also programs the Nuart.It isn’t the first time people have responded in such fashion. There were also fainting and vomiting when the French thriller made the rounds on the festival circuit.Raw, about a young girl who develops an all-consuming appetite for human flesh, made its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival before playing at other fests, including Toronto. Focus World picked up rights to the movie following Cannes.”Marking the feature debut of French director Julia Ducournau, who leads a terrific young cast into a maelstrom of blood, guts and unfettered sexual awakening, this Cannes Critics’ Week selection should become a hot potato (or is that a meatball?) at the market while propelling its talented creator into the spotlight,” The Hollywood Reporter’s review said of the movie. Adding to the gore factor is the fact that the film is set at a Gallic veterinary college.Raw, which opened in select theaters earlier this month, has grossed $78,000 to date from nine cinemas.
Cops are on the hunt for a dapper-but-deadly young man who fatally stabbed a 66-year-old in Hell’s Kitchen during an argument on Monday, authorities said.SEE ALSO 3Mortally wounded man staggers into police station before dyingThe sharp-dressed suspect was caught on surveillance tape plunging a knife into the chest and back of Timothy Caughman near the corner of Ninth Avenue and West 36th Street at around 11:30 p.m., according to police.He was suited up in a large black overcoat, brown dress shoes and dark-colored pants, cops said.Caughman, who has 11 prior arrests, walked for about a block after the stabbing and staggered into the Midtown South Precinct, looking for help. He died hours later after being rushed to a nearby hospital.Police sources said the career criminal was refusing to talk to police about the incident and acting combative before his death.A witness told The Post that he had been arguing with the well-groomed suspect on the street about something when the drama unfolded, though it was unclear. She said the man who stabbed Caughman fled on foot towards 8th Avenue before disappearing.Police described him as a white male with blonde hair.
Nearly half the Big Apple’s sexually active high-school girls have had female partners — and many engage in behavior that endangers their health, an alarming new study finds.Researchers from New York University and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine based their findings on a 2013 survey of public high-school students citywide — but most heavily in “high-risk neighborhoods” in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan.Of 4,600 girls surveyed, 1,101, or 27.5 percent, were sexually active. Of those, 513, or 46.6 percent, reported same-sex experiences, according to the study, published this month in the Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology.This “vulnerable population of girls” who engage in same-sex or bisexual activity are twice as likely as heterosexual teens to be sexually active. The researchers also found:These girls start having sex sooner, have more sexual partners and suffer more “intimate partner violence.”They are less likely to use contraceptive methods — putting them at higher risk of unplanned pregnancy if they also have sex with boys.They use more alcohol, marijuana and other illicit drugs.They report more suicidal thoughts or attempts. Girls “not sure” of their sexual orientation are at highest risk of trying to kill themselves.Even though female-to female transmission of HIV is possible, many of these girls do not test for it or other sex-related diseases.Dr. Chanelle Coble, an adolescent pediatrician and assistant professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, co-authored the study with Einstein assistant professors and psychologists Rosy Chhabra and Ellen Silver.The researchers found the abundance of same-sex activity even though not all teens who indulged identified themselves as lesbian or bi-sexual.“Just looking at how someone describes themselves doesn’t tell the whole story,” Coble said. “When they’re young, it’s harder for them to be specific about their identity — they’re still exploring and figuring it out.”An advocate for lesbian and bisexual youth called the study’s results, “disheartening, but not surprising.”Lesbian and bisexual girls are often stigmatized and treated with hostility, said Emily Greytak, research director for GLSEN, a Manhattan-based group that promotes safe schools for LGBT students.“That can lead to more risky behavior, and takes a toll on their health,” she said.The surveys were conducted by the city Department of Health for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Google is trying to improve the quality of its search results by directing review teams to flag content that might come across as upsetting or offensive.With the change, content with racial slurs could now get flagged under a new category called “upsetting-offensive.” So could content that promotes hate or violence against a specific group of people based on gender, race or other criteria.While flagging something doesn’t directly affect the search results themselves, it’s used to tweak the company’s software so that better content ranks higher. This approach might, for instance, push down content that is inaccurate or has other questionable attributes, thereby giving prominence to trustworthy sources.The review teams — comprised of contractors known as “quality raters” — already comb through websites and other content to flag questionable items such as pornography. Google added “upsetting-offensive” in its latest guidelines for quality raters. Google declined to comment on the changes, which were reported in the blog Search Engine Land and elsewhere.The guidelines , which run 160 pages, are an interesting look into how Google ranks the quality of its search results. For instance, it gives examples of “high-quality” pages, such as the home page of a newspaper that has “won seven Pulitzer Prize awards,” and “low-quality” pages, such as an article that includes “many?grammar and?punctuation errors.”The guidelines cite an example of “Holocaust history” as a search query. A resulting website listing “Top 10 reasons why the holocaust didn’t happen” would get flagged.The new “upsetting-offensive” flag instructs quality raters to “flag to all web results that contain upsetting or offensive content from the perspective of users in your locale, even if the result satisfies the user intent.” So even if the results are what the person searched for, such as white supremacist websites, they could still get flagged. But it doesn’t mean the results won’t show up at all when someone searches for them.
Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you. Then there’s Rachel Maddow, who stuck her head in the bear’s mouth while talking trash. Chomp!It wouldn’t be fair to call her Tuesday night show the TV flop seen ’round the world. It was worse than that. Much worse.It was a gut-punch embarrassment to Maddow, to MSNBC, to NBC and to all the lefties who bought her afternoon tweet that “We’ve got Trump tax returns.” Were she selling stocks, she’d be busted for running a pump-and-dump scam.Yet for hours, between her boast and the actual show, Maddow launched a million fantasies. The anti-Trumpers had to be salivating, imagining that the big scoop would finally reveal the president as a tax cheat and liar, a filthy parasite on hardworking taxpayers.This could be it, the Holy Grail, the silver bullet that finished him. The nation would rise up in disgust, Republicans would jump ship, Trump would be impeached, Vice President Mike Pence would take over, Dems would promptly eviscerate him and presto, the Clinton presidency would be restored!And all because Maddow got the goods. She would be celebrated as the woman who broke the illegitimate president and saved America from the deplorables and irredeemables.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Because of her, Black Lives Matter would be important again. Transgendered men could pee in little girls’ bathrooms. Never again would terrorism be linked to Islam and saying “America First” would be a hate crime.Chomp!The outrage at Maddow on the unhinged left, and the mockery of her among sensible people, is that her sin went far beyond delivering a dud. She assembled an audience only to deliver a great gift to Trump.Her scoop, courtesy of journalist David Cay Johnston, was two pages from Trump’s 2005 federal return. It showed income of $153 million, and a tax payment of $38 million.That works out to a rate of about 25 percent, higher than the rate paid in recent years by MSNBC parent Comcast, tax hiker Barack Obama, socialist Bernie Sanders and Warren Buffett, among others.SEE ALSO NBC fuming over Maddow’s Trump tax scoopMaddow made Trump a good guy. One can only imagine her anguish that the truth was able to emerge.Her hoax is the kind that validates Trump’s claims of fake news. The hostility to him is blinding otherwise intelligent people to facts, and they recklessly rush through red lights.Imagine what was going on with Maddow’s producers and staff. Did anyone dare say to her that we have a problem, that the tax return you’re boasting of actually shows Trump to be a billionaire who pays his fair share?That’s not what anybody wanted. They came to bury Trump, not to praise him. And so they tried, and failed.Heaven forbid that, faced with the facts it had, MSNBC would do the story the facts told. Not a chance. Trump must be savaged, truth be damned.Beyond the obvious reputational damage, the episode is serious for another reason, too. Leaking someone’s tax returns is a crime, one Maddow celebrated because the victim is Trump.But the rule of law can’t survive if enough people holding prominent positions believe the end justifies the means. It opens the door to endless conflict, and closes any hope of uniting our polarized nation.
An unassembled explosive device was found in an abandoned suitcase inside the Port Authority Bus Terminal, police sources said Thursday.Port Authority cops called the NYPD bomb squad after finding the luggage around 8 p.m. on the first floor near Deli Plus.They looked inside the case and found “a fuse assembly and black gunpowder, the items were not assembled and non-operational,” an NYPD spokesman said.A man named Arsenio Mason, 39, was arrested by Port Authority cops when he returned to the terminal and asked about the suitcase.Mason appears to match the description of a man seen on surveillance planting the suitcase, police sources said.
