Netflix under Fire for Suspected Child Pornography Scenes

An Argentinian movie that Netflix offers called Desire is upsetting subscribers because of what looks like illegal content. Viewers on Facebook have shared a clip of the movie and are calling it outright child porn. In the opening scene, two little girls who look to be about seven and nine are playing “horse” on pillows. The older girl begins to obviously masturbate as the younger child watches. The camera even takes this scene into a closeup of the child’s face in slow motion, moving up and down and panting like a porn star. The scene is graphic and includes an orgasm. The film is directed by Diego Kaplan. I reported it to the FBI and the Department of Justice, who advised me to contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. NCMEC told me they have launched an investigation into the movie.

Air Controllers “Diversity and Inclusion” Scheme Harms Airline Safety

In 2013, President Obama-appointed FAA Administrator Michael Huerta announced plans to “transform the (FAA) into a more diverse and inclusive workplace.” As a result, the FAA opened air traffic control training to “off-the-street hires” — any English-speaking citizen with a high school diploma — despite the fact that many high school diplomas are of little value or even fraudulent. Applicants are required to complete a biographical questionnaire. Those who “pass” are deemed eligible. The questionnaire gives more points to an applicant who answers that he has not been employed in the previous three years than it does to an applicant who answers that he has been a pilot or is a veteran with an air traffic control-related military background. In addition, it was determined that the workforce was too white, resulting in the FAA hiring half of new controllers based on race.

Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity Rules Being Forced onto Lawyers

State bars are expanding nondiscrimination rules to include sexual orientation and gender identity, proposed by the American Bar Association. Lawyers are forbidding from engaging in “harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status or socioeconomic status in conduct related to the practice of law.” The problem for lawyers? Slightly over half of the state bars are mandatory. In those states that adopt these changes, lawyers can be disciplined for violating the rule. Liberal groups welcomed the new restriction on lawyers’ freedom of conscience. The LGBT legal group Lambda Legal supported the rule change in Arizona. It declared that a prosecutor who refers to a transgender defendant using the “wrong” pronoun violates the rule. Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry disagrees. He issued an opinion that the language violates the First Amendment. It is vague and overly broad. He called the new rules viewpoint discrimination. Read more:

Study: States Might Be Undercounting Opioid Deaths by as Much as 70,000

Researchers suggest state health officials might be “greatly underestimating” the opioid crisis, finding a possible 70,000 uncounted deaths since 1999. Many opioid overdose victims are getting lost in the official count due to incomplete cause-of-death reports. Unspecified drug-overdose deaths jumped from 2,255 in 1999 to 29,383 in 2015, an increase of 220 percent. Overall, unintentional drug overdoses killed 438,607 people between 1999 and 2015. Over this period, deaths linked to opioids experienced a 401-percent increase, while non-opioid related overdose deaths increased by 150 percent. Researchers used the proportion of opioid-linked deaths among the overall population of drug deaths to estimate how many fatalities listed as “unspecified” could be tied to opioids. This as reports that global opium and cocaine production has never been higher.

31% Think U.S. Civil War Likely Soon

Most voters fear that political violence is coming from opponents of the president’s policies, just as they did in the second year of Barack Obama’s presidency, and nearly one-in-three think a civil war is next. Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, with 11% who say it’s Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not at All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Democrats (37%) are more fearful than Republicans (32%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (26%) that a second civil war is at hand.

‘Crisis of Democracy’: N.Y. Times Op-Ed Supports Abusing Republicans in Public, Ignores Liberals Shooting, Beating Conservatives

Michelle Goldberg’s op ed attempts to justify the abuse Republicans and Trump administration officials have been subjected to in recent years. Goldberg falsely paints liberals as peaceful, unarmed saints who have reached the limit of their patience and are forced to confront evil Republicans. These radical leftists define “democracy” as straight majority rule–mob rule, as has been witnessed this past week in mob actions against female GOP government officials Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Pam Bondi and Kirstjen Nielsen. Other examples of liberal violence against conservatives include a Republican Congressman grievously wounded in an attempted mass shooting of Republican lawmakers, Trump supporters viciously attacked at campaign rallies, and a limo set ablaze at Trump’s inauguration. Goldberg misrepresents Antifa, the violent organized wing of liberalism that riots and attacks conservatives in public. Goldberg falsely claims that these radical activists do not carry “assault weapons,” when that has occurred many times in states that allow open carry.

The #MeToo Revolution Puts Spotlight on U.S.— Poll shows America Ranked Among 10 Most Dangerous Countries for Women

The United States was named as the only Western nation among the 10 most dangerous countries for women in a survey of global experts, after the #MeToo campaign triggered a flood of complaints about sexual harassment and assault. The Thomson Reuters Foundation survey asked 550 experts in women’s issues which of the 193 United Nations member states they considered most dangerous on a range of issues, with India topping the list followed by Afghanistan and Syria. The United States came 10th overall, but ranked joint third with Syria when respondents were asked where women most risked sexual violence, harassment and coercion into sex, and sixth regarding non-sexual violence such as domestic and mental abuse. Experts, advocates and survivors said a rising awareness of assault against women pegged to the #Metoo movement, the country’s outsized role on the world stage and a tolerance of violence added to the perception of danger in the United States.
