During a "listening session" yesterday on domestic and international human trafficking, President Trump announced that "solving the human trafficking epidemic is a priority" for the Trump administration."
I want to make it clear today that my administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking. ... It's getting worse and it's happening in the United States in addition to the rest of the world, but it's happening in the United States, which is terrible.
It's a very, very terrible problem. It's not talked about enough. People don't know enough about it. And we're going to talk about it, and we're going to bring it out into the open and hopefully we're going to do a great deal to help prevent some of the horrific -- really horrific -- crimes that are taking place.
And I can see -- I really can say, in this country, people don't realize how bad it is in this country, but in this country and all over the world.
It is certainly the case that people don't know enough about it, and maybe especially as it takes place in this country. It is a most difficult subject to read up on (not that the media cover it adequately), given its deeply sick and sickening, dehumanized and dehumanizing core -- and the victims.
I am still no expert, but the Jeffrey Epstein/Clinton child sex trafficking scandal that failed to stop the Clintons before Trump did, Weiner-gate, and, yes, Pizzagate, are surely shark fins on a story with its heinous mass in the deep. (Here are my initial thoughts on PIzzagate, "Wake Up and Smell the Culture.") It is not possible to know now if any such stories about the Washington high and mighty are on the administration radar, but they should and could be. (One thing I hope for is an FBI investigation into whether crime was committed in the unexplained "suicide" of Monica Petersen last November while investigating trafficking in Clinton-linked projects in Haiti. Meanwhile, watch journalist and sexual assault advocate Liz Crokin's video here, which she made because she believes her life is being threatened and she is unsafe.)
This is surely the most unhealthy swamp of all to drain. We have only to look to news in Great Britain about massive pedophile rings that operated (and were covered up) in government and media to get an inkling of what might be here as well. Over time, these tentacles of perversion and crime among the powerful pop out of the DC swamp, but remain disjointed, unlinked. It is mainly thanks to the work of independent researchers and whistleblowers -- the late Paul Rodrigeuz of the Washington Times, John W. DeCamp, author of the The Franklin Cover-Up (see video above, also this rough-cut documentary here ), also famed FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, for example, some of whose allegations against former Speaker Dennis Hastert are here) -- that the public knows anything about them at all.
As per usual, the MSM did not show enthusiasm for Trump's announcement, most of them running the briefest of briefs by the AP. Maybe it is significant that the New York Times' CEO Mark Thompson has been accused of lying while director general of BBC during an inquiry into BBC's cover-up of rampant pedophile Jimmy Savile, who abused an estimated one thousand children over his career.
It's not just a swamp to drain, it's a sewer.
