    Trans woman, 41, pretended to be a boy to groom a girl

    A s3x offender who claims to be transgender has been jailed for 11 years after pretending to be a boy to try and groom a girl. Jacinta Brooks, 41, asked a 12-year-old girl to send indecent pictures of herself – the third time she is known to have targeted children. Brooks, who identifies as a woman and was previously known as Duncan Smart, has previously faced the courts for having s3x with someone who is underage and child abuse.

    The latest victim’s mother said that she would be haunted for the rest of a life by ‘this pathetic excuse of a person’ and had been forced to leave because of the severe trauma. Judge Nicholas Rowland described Brooks a ‘danger to children’ at Southampton Crown Court.

    Prosecutor Berenice Mulvanny said that police found screenshots of the conversation with the girl along with hundreds of child abuse pictures. Brooks gave no comment during a police interview but admitted she ‘couldn’t argue’ about being attracted to children. Miss Mulvanny said: ‘Brooks knew the girl was underage but sent her s3xual messages. The defendant originally pretended to be a 14-year-old boy but soon admitted her real age.’

    The court heard Brooks’ victim was forced to leave school and was suffering with trauma after the incident. In a victim impact statement the girl’s mother said: ‘The fact I cannot protect my daughter from this pathetic excuse of a person will haunt me forever.’

    Brooks, of Winchester, Hampshire, admitted three counts of inciting a child to engage in s3xual activity and three of possessing indecent images. Brooks was released from prison two years ago, having served almost 13 years behind bars for attacking the girl under 16 in 2003. Judge Rowland ordered that Brooks must notify police if creating any future social media and email accounts and must also give officers the passwords. Brook’s lawyer Robert Harding claimed much had changed in the time his client had been behind bars and she had struggled to understand social media and online networking. Speaking after the sentencing, investigating officer PC Simon Leon, of Hampshire Constabulary, said: ‘Brooks is a dangerous individual and we are pleased this case has now come to a conclusion.’

    Finally, some perspective: I’m 45 years old, and the U.S. unemployment rate has never been this low in my lifetime. All the more astonishing, given that only a decade ago, the global economy imploded in a way not seen since my grandparents yout

    Jeff Flake, what the President is saying is next time don’t piss your pants.

  23. Oh come on

    I think Ben Shapiro makes a good point about the 2012 Presidential election; he says it was that event that broke the country. Up until then, there existed a critical mass of people who refused to abandon basic mores of decency and weren’t willing to do Whatever It Takes to get their boy over the line. After Mitt Romney – probably the cleanest-cut POTUS candidate in history – was successfully slimed as a sexist-racist-homophobe and went on to lose the election to a demonstrably incompetent incumbent who ought to have lost, I think a bunch of people decided to take the gloves off and throw decency to the wind.

    Noted by somebody in the old Open …

    The WSJ is reporting that Ford friend Leland Keyser has now told the FBI she was monstered to alter her testimony by Ford handler and DNC Winston Wolf Monica McLean after she – Keysar – testified that she never attended any (imaginary) rape party. Furthermore, a supplemental FBI document has been fowarded to the White House with evidence of McLean’s witness tampering.

    Senator Murkowski votes no on Kavanaugh. In her 3 Senate races she’s NEVER won majority of vote. Won only 44 to 29 agst Libertarian candidate in 2016. Lost her 2010 GOP primary. Conservatives in Alaska have never trusted her.

    Make this slag feel the wrath forever more.

  48. Oh come on

    I think Heitkamp may have voted no? If there was a firmer indication that the vote would split strictly along party lines, Manchin might have felt more confident in voting against Kavanaugh. But if Kavanaugh goes down, I don’t think he can afford to be seen as being a part of that movement.

  49. Infidel Tiger

    The global deep state’s attempt at spying on and trying to take down Trump is the biggest scandal of this century. Downer deserves to cop it for his part in this sordid affair.

    Oh, and McLean’s attorney is…. wait for it,….. David Laufman.

    If there was any doubt the “small group” of connected DOJ and FBI officials were behind the use of Ms. Ford, you can put that doubt away now that Ms. Ford’s handler, Monica McLean, has enlisted David Laufman as her legal defense.

    They’re not even trying to hide it any more.

    Michael Bromwich is representing Ms. Ford, and David Laufman is representing Ms. McLean. The concentric Lawfare gang is working overtime, likely pro-bono.

    It is beyond obvious now that Ms. Christine Blasey-Ford was not just some random ancillary high school acquaintance of Brett Kavanaugh; Ms. Ford appears to have been selected by a group of politically connected FBI and DOJ officials for the purpose of targeting Judge Kavanaugh.

    All of these DOJ and FBI people are part of a tight network.

    Unsolicited Advice to Judge Kavanaugh: Sue Them All

    But under our system of justice there is a place where an individual can go to seek redress and accountability for accusations that destroy reputation. Judge Kavanaugh, you have spent much of your adult life there – that place is a court of law. Because you are a sitting member of the federal judiciary and may yet be a justice on the United States Supreme Court, you may be disinclined to be a litigant in civil defamation lawsuits. If these are your feelings, I urge you to reconsider.

    As you well know, the law provides that republishers of unsubstantiated, false accusations are liable for such accusations even when initially made by others if they republish those accusations with a reckless disregard for truth or falsity. Since at least 1896, our courts have recognized the legal maxim that “talebearers are as bad as talemakers” in the eyes of the law

    L. Lin Wood is a nationally recognized trial lawyer based in Atlanta, with 42 years of experience. For over two decades, he has focused his practice on defamation law and protection of reputation.

    Christine Blasey Ford and the Implanted Memory Theory

    But the only other possibility consistent with Judge Kavanaugh’s claim of innocence has received very little attention.

    That is the possibility that Dr. Ford may have been misled by a sincere but false memory of something that never happened, perhaps created by her marital or individual psychotherapy.

    At first blush this may seem far-fetched. But science has shown that implanted false memories are such a common phenomenon in human affairs – and have sent so many innocent people to prison — that fairness to Judge Kavanaugh requires study of relevant portions of Dr. Ford’s therapists’ notes, and perhaps testimony.

    It’s too late for that to happen before the confirmation vote. But it will be a sin against the truth-finding process, and fairness, and history, if it doesn’t happen at all.

    Even if the Dems claw back Manchin, making it 50:50, the President of the Senate (VP Pence) has the tie-break vote.

    Some ask why the Dimmocrats are fighting so dirty and so hard over Kavanaugh?

    Because Democrats have relied on the courts to do the things they can’t get done in Congress. In fact Chucky Shummer admitted it in his pre-cloture vote speech if one listened closely.

    Rush Limbaugh states the case clearly:

    “Eighty percent, if not more, of the liberal agenda that is governing the culture of this country has not passed in our Congress or legislatures,” Limbaugh said. “Eighty percent of the destructive pop culture impulses of the American left have been forced on us by courts, and that is why all of this, among many other reasons, is so crucial that the Democrat Party.”

    The political elite are a bunch of incompetent morons. Of course Australia has been leading the charge in sharing all our data with what now turns out to be the Chinese Communist Party.

    Yep they really are- I think Macaroon is the stand out example right now. Up there with Marie Antionette.

    The article in the Oz by serial opinionista Remy Varga about Milo describes him as alt-right which is a lie. He has always said he is hated by the white supremacists – he has wed a black man for a start and has denied any association with white supremacists.

    Milo hates identity politics either from the left or the right.

    But Remy Varga has form – after all she has a Masters in Journalism from no less an institution than UTS no doubt a graduate of the comically-named Australian Centre of Independent Journalism lectured to by none other than the raped-by-God’s-steel-prick Wendy Bacon, which explains much. Ms Varga also has an Arts degree. So there you have it.

    Eighty percent of the destructive pop culture impulses of the American left have been forced on us by courts

    And so, the Republicans are fighting back against the leftist march through the institutions, of which the courts are the most valuable territory.

    Meanwhile, we in Australia do nothing to push back against the Left taking over our courts. Campbell Newman tried in QLD and they pilloried him for it.

    There is a third player in this.
    That is, the Democrat infected bureacracy.
    Take EPA legislation.
    Congress passes vague legislation.
    The EPA then builds a raft of choking regulation on the thin legislative foundation.
    Liberal judges validate the regulation as law.
    .
    Perfect cocoon of protection.
    Judges can’t be removed.
    Congressmen shrug and say, “well, what can we do”.

    Good Moaning.

    I must admit that I was unaware abortion was illegal in QLD although thousands are performed.

    Is this correct?

    Whatever your stance is on abortion, I believe that you should firmly be against it.
    One, because it is murder if you stop a heart beat, but if you are not inclined to agree with that, it should be seen as an excellent way to fight the left.
    Once the left win in an area, or on a subject , they move on to the next step, toward moving the next goalposts more to the left.

    We must move the goal posts back and keep them busy fighting where we want them to be.
    They will always be fighting viciously, so lets keep the goal posts they are out to destroy firmly on the right side of the field, everywhere.
    The secret to success, and Trump knows this so well, is that they are (and especially now with femarxism) an hysterical mob of sheeples.
    They have a cause de jour and due to the nature of the beast, do not multi task well.
    To whip up these sheep, they must use emotion over reason and you can’t split a flock of sheep.
    Monty is a classic example.
    He has TDS badly.
    He hasn’t concentrated on ruining Australia, or Australian politics for a couple of years now.

    It’s easy to win against these people.

    They are incredibly thick and easily lead.
    If we would actually believe this, we could have them dancing their tribal war dances on the stages we set for them, not at the venues they choose.

    Let’s fire them up about abortion, while we stop mass invasion through immigration.

    Let’s have them bleating about women’s bodies, women’s rights while we build coal powered stations and exit brexit.

    The left require pack mentality hysterics.

    Let’s use that to our advantage.

    CNN Vs Hungary: Leftist Network Clashes with Foreign Minister on Multiculturalism, Migrants, Soros

    …He also rejected the CNN anchor’s description of the ‘Stop Soros’ laws as “kind of shocking, on a basic human level, [punishing] ordinary activists, civilians, lawyers, who want to help some of these poor people who are fleeing in danger of their lives”.

    “People who criticise Hungary on such issues, I always ask, ‘Man, have you read what you are speaking about?’”, the Hungarian replied, insisting that the law was not intended to punish people who simply try to “help” asylum seekers, but only those who promote “illegal opportunities” for people to violate Hungary’s borders and abuse the asylum system — suggesting that such activities are also illegal in the United States….

Here’s a list of Mr Turnbull’s faves whom he still follows on Twitter – Katharine (“Malcolm calls me Murpharoo”) Murphy, Peter van Onselen, David Crowe, Chris Uhlmann and Annabel Crabb. Mr Turnbull also follows Nine News Australia, 7 News Sydney, The Guardian Australia, Reuters, CNN, Washington Post, Sydney Morning Herald and New York Times.

    “Amanpour also attempted to take Szijjártó to task on the subject of the migrant crisis, in which the Hungarians led the counter-charge against German leader Angela Merkel’s now partially abandoned come one, come all policy by constructing border barriers which have cut illegal migration by over 99 percent, and by refusing to accept EU-imposed migrant redistribution quotas.”

    I would have loved to hear the gent answer:

    There is no migrant crisis except the one Merkel created. There is no significant war in Africa for them to be “war-refugees” from.

    If the EU had maintained it’s borders and former immigration policies the so-called refugees would have stayed home which would have done two things. It would have left their disgusting, violent cultures where they were born and it, along with nature, would have forced those countries to maintain their birthrates within the limits of what their resources would support instead of flooding other, more mature and stabilized societies with violent beggers.

    Are their homelands not the nicest places to live? Perhaps, but we didn’t make them that way and certainly aren’t helping improve them by importing their problems here.

    We lose because too many on our side of the fence climb the fence. We’re capitulators of the highest order. The left, you will note, destroy their capitulators. Not even a toe-nail across the line goes unnoticed. Not with a little tut-tut but KABOOM.

    In emission accounting agriculture is usually counted as a negative because the sink of established trees is removed along with a disturbance of the soil releasing the CO2 sequestered there. However if quick growing crops are sown where mature trees once were the new sink created by the quick growing crops exceeds the sink lost and the CO2 released by soil disturbance.
