Man Impersonating a Police Officer – Pulls Over Van Full of Police

Valiery Portlock-crimeshop

Hicksville, New York

25-year old, Valiery Portlock, turned on emergency lights and sounded an airhorn Friday morning in an attempt to pull over a van, which just so happened to be full of well actual police, detectives actually from the Nassau County Police Department’s electronics squad.

According to police, as the detectives informed Valiery that they were actual police, Valiery attempted to flee the scene by jumping into his car and driving away, swerved into oncoming traffic and sped to the Long Island Expressway, where he was eventually stopped by the highway patrol, more real police.

Naturally, Valiery was arrested and charged with criminal impersonation, reckless endangerment and fleeing the police. He was released from custody on his own recognizance following an arraignment on Saturday.

What is truly terrifying about this is that they let him out on a PR bond, just let someone go who knowingly impersonates police, so what happens when the next vehicle he pulls over is not full of actual police?

Fed’s in Hot Seat 


Jeffrey Epstein Suicide 

Cristal M Clark 

As news broke of Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide, so did all sorts of conspiracy theories including one Donald Trump tweeted about. Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide in jail this past weekend so, naturally conspiracy theories surrounding his death immediately jumped to the top of Twitter’s trending recommendation page. #ClintonBodyCount and tweets mentioning the Clintons and the baseless conspiracy theories that the Clintons have orchestrated many murders over decades.

What’s more, are rumors are circulating that indicate he had dirt to share in the hopes of getting another sweet deal. 


But now as the smoke clears, the Fed’s are under fire and rightfully so, finding themselves in the hot seat for Jeffrey’s suicide leaving the feds under immense and overwhelmingly mounting public pressure to explain Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide in his, federal jail cell over the weekend.

Which by the way puts Attorney General William Barr, directly in the spotlight and also means that he must explain just how and why this happened. Victims of Jeffrey want answers and were left feeling victimized again over not getting the justice they feel that they deserve. 

Sadly, they would have never seen justice truly served, the failings of the system ensured that the first go around with Jeffrey. The system that let the man get away with such sickening crimes is the very same system that was attempting to prosecute him now. If the system were not broken, that rich white man would have answered for his crimes a long time ago and not have been given a super sweet deal walking away virtually scott free in the first place.  

The one thing I keep hearing over and over again is that the victims will never see justice now. This suicide is justice, and its justice well served. He was a coward pedophile, and died like a coward rather than face his accusers. He would have never shown remorse, he never felt that what he did was wrong, he was arrogant about it. He spoke of child rape as if it were okay and perfectly excusable, yet when the reality of his actions finally hit him, rather than face that reality he decided to kill himself because he was a millionaire who was also aging and he knew full well that in this day and age, he would not be given the opportunity to get off light. He had been given a forever blackeye no matter what and more than likely would have never seen the outside of jail or prison again. 


When you live your entire life believing you can do no wrong and excuse your behavior, are above the system and buy your way out of crime and then suddenly are faced with the notion that you will not be given the chance to buy your way out of it again…well it’s basically 2+2 here. His way out was status and money, all of you watch the news, I am betting so did he, he knew that option would be off the table this time. 


The victims in this case were saved because this guy got off once, I truly question the ability of our current judicial system to properly hold him accountable now, given a second go around, he promised dirt on other wealthy individuals so what kind of deal would he have gotten this time, there is worse in the world than wars in your heads, those wars are over.

America – The Land of The Free 


Not the Land of the Handouts 


Cristal M Clark 

The Trump administration has announced new immigration policy changes and the announcement has left some accusing the administration of reinterpreting US history and an 1882 law to exclude poor immigrants.


Whenever I agree with something Trump and his administration do, I like to preface it with I am not a supporter of Donald J Trump. Overall, I think he is a complete embarrassment and a double black eye to America. 

Today, Trump issued a new rule targeting legal immigrants who want to remain in the United States but whose lack of financial resources are judged likely to make them a burden on taxpayers. Which quite nicely hits the nail on the head. 

Surge Of Migrants Strain Border Patrol In El Paso

Poor immigrants will be denied permanent legal status, also known as a green card, if they are deemed likely to use government benefit programs such as food stamps and subsidized housing. Wealthier immigrants, who are designated as less likely to require public assistance, will be able to obtain a green card.

The new regulation is aimed at hundreds of thousands of immigrants who enter the country legally every year and then apply to become permanent residents but who also drain the public assistance system.

Starting in October, the government’s decision will be based on an aggressive wealth test to determine whether those immigrants have the means to support themselves. Other countries do this, already in case you did not know. 

I know a lot of people are upset at this new rule, the reality is that we can no longer afford to be the land of the free and also the land of the free handouts. So, what CNN as well as other mainstream media outlets are missing and not telling you, the immigrants that will be denied permanent legal status who come here and drain our public assistance systems, would still be allowed to obtain work visas to come and work for a limited amount of time, then they would have to return to their respective homeland, or have an employer sponsor the work visa for an extended amount of time. 

Other countries do this in terms of immigration. I can’t hop on a bloody plane and head on over to Canada, live off of her system and tell them I am running from my oppressive, deranged, dangerous and insane ruler here in the U.S., maybe they’ve heard of him? But, I cannot support myself so they have to support me. 

No, I have to obtain a work visa with an established employer in Canada, establish that I can support myself whilst in the country and abide by many other rules and regulations. So many countries handle immigration this way, why wouldn’t Trump consider this? 


Some are accusing Trump and his administration of trying to Make America White Again, (not calling anyone out, CNN), that they fail to see the whole point. The Trump administration is simply attempting to accomplish something just about every other wealthy country in the world is already doing. 

America cannot continue to take in or take on the world’s problems, we have our own and I agree, we cannot grant citizenship to those who cannot support themselves and who live off of our public assistance programs. That being said, we must also consider what happens when workers stop coming to America because they will no longer have the opportunity to become citizens? Will the administration take a look at the employers who take advantage of and exploit these low skilled, low paid foreign workers and start looking into why they are not paying them livable wages? 

Maybe even do something about that too? 

Overall, out of all of the policies Trump has tried to force with respects to immigration to the US, this one actually does make sense.

We have US born citizens living on our streets who have good paying jobs but who are unable to afford housing due to the rising costs of housing, food, fuel, and all of the other costs that go along with being a contributing working adult that we need to shift our focus and attention to.

US Citizens to Lawmakers – Stop Sleeping At the Wheel


Gun Law Changes

Cristal M Clark  

Pomfret, Maryland, El Paso Texas, Dayton Ohio just to name a few of the more recent deadly mass shootings. Each and act of domestic terror, one driven as his manifesto shows by nothing more than our very own president’s words of racial hatred and intolerance.

It is completely heartbreaking.


It’s time for the leaders of this nation including Donald Trump to wake up and stop sleeping at the wheel here, it’s time for every American to finally grasp the idea that just because you are an American, it does not afford you the right to own or have access to a gun.

Not anymore.


Donald Trump is attempting to tie in gun legislation with immigration policy? Are you fucking kidding me? Trump’s ability to continually stir the pot of hatred in this country is precisely what enabled Russia to meddle, instills the ideology that it is okay to be a hatful racist, it clears the path to some of these shootings.

The government needs to take swift action and begin the process of implementing laws that are designed to protect our citizens, not laws aimed at rights to own guns, we need laws that allow for the government to obtain a court order and take guns away from those that they deem unstable. Sorry the but the facts are in front of us, and protecting the right to own a gun is an inbred, hillbilly inept way to look at things in this day and age.

Its time to stop voting for anyone who allows for the NRA to dump campaign money into a campaign so they can win, because those bed fellows are no longer tolerable.

Enough is enough, it’s time to do something.

Democratic National Debate


Comedy Central Democratic Roast

Cristal M Clark

Ahhh voting season is here, political rants are splashed across my Facebook minute by minute, political hate filled rhetoric is tweeted by the second, yes it would appear it’s that time again, to start picking fights or a side if you’d rather in the great, race to be our nations next president.


With this great race comes things like the Democratic National Debate and if you watched it the last two nights it was more or less a lot like a Comedy Central Roast, without any actual comedy and delivered by some folks who are not actual comedians but rather politicians.


The delivery, punch lines and insults could use some improvement, namely if you want someone’s vote try understanding the voters.

CNN is busy shoving the debate from the last two nights down everyone’s throats and delivering a wide range of interviews, interjecting their own insults hurled at the speakers over the last two nights while also giving each participant a chance to tell CNN viewers what they meant or say what they couldn’t.

Are you kidding this is a job interview, no one gets a second chance to clarify things in the real world. Come on.

A lot of emphasis this morning was placed on health care. I almost at one point had issues choking down my beloved coffee as one of the presidential runners who I will not name actually had the balls to say, she gets out there to meet voters and really understands what American’s want. Ummm no, you don’t honey.


Overall however, the Democrats are missing the whole mark. While trying to bring us together and making this about unity, they still fail to understand what made Trump the man he is today. That ill thought out idea of tagging his precedency with “Make America Great Again,” well it did strike a chord in more than just white men, you see that statement even I make fun of, actually does have a truer meaning to it if anyone is paying attention. One of the things Trump gets so well is how to speak to the working class, he misses the mark when it comes to actually making much of what he promises come true simply because he does not really understand how to create change in such a politically driven world.

Likewise what the Democrats are missing is the key ingredient to why so many Americans want to Make America Great Again, to them that means being able to have jobs that actually pay the bills, being able to afford to buy a home, food, vehicles, raise a family, afford health care, they don’t just want affordable health care, they want it all, the way it used to be back in the day, just without oppressing women and anyone who is not a white male. The person who can manage to speak to the working class at that level will win and so far, that has been one Donald J Trump.

We force other countries to do things, take for instance the current trade war, we need to our leaders at least to take a stand against businesses whose boards and owners live it up whilst employing individuals by the masses yet failing to pay them actual livable wages. Instead of bailing out banks, wall street and allowing businesses like Amazon to not pay Federal Taxes and provide free college tuition while also forgiving the college debt of everyone struggling to pay it back.

Trump understands these idea’s in the fullest capacity, not only that, what’s more is that he is able to give the illusion of a better America without having to actually make it better, because to do that he needs the help of others and he faces too much political red tape to actually achieve it. He simply capitalizes on the very idea and concept of making things better by making promises that speak to the masses who are not really about forgiving debts, bail outs and tax breaks for the corporate world. Giving a tax break for any company should be directly tied to that company having proven its workers from the top down are actually paid livable wages, but that is too easy of a concept but one that Trump can speak well to.

The Democrats thus far, are failing at this. They are speaking to a few of the idea’s and concepts but not all as whole, they want to unify which is great but if they really want the supporters who back Trump they are going to have to get on board with Trump’s idea of making America great again, while understanding how to accomplish that without putting each other’s idea’s down but by working together and capitalizing on the idea’s and making them better, into something tangible, something that will work for everyone. Forging college debt and/or providing free college to all is going to do very little in the way of unifying this country, it will in fact cause a much larger divide. Forcing people into any type of government insurance is not going to do it either nor is telling everyone what one has accomplished while in office, we no longer actually believe someone has accomplished something let alone anything without the help and support of others.

The Dems have a long way to go on the road to the white house, they might want to reconsider the approach here.

Pilots and Passengers Behaving Badly


Trouble in the Skies

Cristal M Clark

How many times have you ever boarded a plane and thought to yourself, I wonder if my pilot is a little drunky, drunk? Right, me either. Turns out that if someone suspects a pilot is drunk that pilot can be removed from a fully boarded plane and arrested. Case in point, on Tuesday morning a Delta pilot was taken off a fully boarded plane at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol and arrested.

37-year-old Gabriel Lyle Schroeder from Rosemount, Minnesota, was arrested a little after 11 a.m. local time after an investigation was conducted by airline police. Before getting on the plane, Gabriel was seen leaving a TSA screening line for crew members when he noticed there was additional screening being conducted, then re-entering the line a short time later. Authorities found a container of alcohol in Gabriel possession once he was taken into custody although no formal charges have been filed as of this time.


Back in May, Christian Richard Martin, a pilot for PSA Airlines, which is owned by American Airlines, was arrested at Louisville International Airport just before a flight to Charlotte, North Carolina he was scheduled to fly. It seems that good old Christian murdered 3 individuals back in 2015, tampering with evidence and multiple counts of burglary.

Christian is accused of the murder of Calvin Phillips, his wife Pamela Phillips, and their neighbor Edward Dansereau in November 2015, said Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear. Calvin Phillips was found shot to death in his home in Pembroke, Kentucky, while Pamela Phillips and Edward Dansereau were found in a burnt-out car a few miles away.

Most disturbing still the same and this takes the cake is how passengers behave. A Delta Air Line passenger was caught on camera masturbating under the blanket on a flight.

A co-passenger took to Twitter on Tuesday to share a video clip of the man performing sex acts on himself while seated next to the window. The incident comes a month after a United Airlines passenger was found guilty of masturbating in his seat. According to in an affidavit, Enrique Gonzalez began masturbating “when the cabin lights were dimmed and continued for approximately 30 minutes, during which Gonzalez met the witness’ eye and continued his conduct.” His wife, who was traveling with him, was aware of Gonzalez’s action and “played with it” as well.

Not only do we have to think about our planes being safe enough to stay in the air thanks to Boeing but now we have to worry about drunk and murderous pilots and masturbating co-passengers.

Tech Industry Watch Out New Waste of Time Bill Aimed at You


Sen. Josh Hawley

Cristal M Clark

A new bill, which is sponsored by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), targeting the tech industry’s “addictive” design is heading out on the road hoping to gain some traction. The bill aims at ending auto-play videos and endless scrolling, the bill is also a complete and utter waste of time given all of the many other issues we face here in America that are oh, I don’t know much more important.

Deceptive design had a fairly huge impact in last week’s FTC settlement with Facebook, which lawmakers are hoping to capitalize on by proposing all sort of legislation deceptively advertised as a way to protect users of such platforms, but the legislation is nothing more than a way of better controlling what users see or in this case engage in.


Basically, the bill, dubbed Hawley’s Social Media Addiction Reduction Technology Act, or the SMART Act, would ban features that work to keep users on platforms longer, along with others, that incentivize the continued use of these products. If approved, the Federal Trade Commission and Health and Human Services could create similar rules that would expire after three years unless Congress codified them into law.

According to Josh; “Big tech has embraced a business model of addiction too much of the ‘innovation’ in this space is designed not to create better products, but to capture more attention by using psychological tricks that make it difficult to look away.”

So, let me see if I understand this, this bill aims to pretty much tell someone they are not allowed to engage in any addictive behavior, basically a way as to control human behavior? It is the end user after all who chooses to spend his/her time doing whatever they find pleasing.


Josh Golin, executive director of campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood: “Social media companies deploy a host of tactics designed to manipulate users in ways that undermines their well being.”

Is America the home of the free or is that just some tag line used to trick citizens into staying here or wanting to come here? The point being, Josh may or may not be right, fundamentally people have more of a right to choose how we want to engage our time whether it is of a benefit to our well-being or not, it is not for Josh or anyone who has a seat within the confines of the United States Government to decide for us.

Social media needs to find better ways to protect user data, not sell it and keep trolls from the sites, whatever else falls to it, it is up to each individual end user to partake or not.

Josh Golin and his lot can kindly piss off and use their time to engage in more beneficial ways of helping our nation by preventing things like drug addiction and poverty, stopping big corporations from not paying federal taxes while earning billions all while not paying employees actual livable wages, you know issues that actually matter and that actually do affect our well-being.

Our world has bigger issues than anyone trying to tell any of us how to waste our time.

Donald Trump – Of Course Iran Didn’t Arrest 17 US Spies


Donald Trump The All Knowing

Cristal M Clark

According to Donald Trump, Iran’s claim that it has captured 17 people spying for the U.S. is “totally false.” On Monday, a senior Iranian intelligence officer told reporters in Tehran that Iran has detained CIA-trained Iranian nationals who were attempting to gather information on the country’s military and nuclear capabilities.


“The rulings for these spies have been issued and a number of them will be executed as corruptors on Earth,” said the intelligence officer, who was not identified. Iran’s semiofficial news agency Fars describes him as the director-general of the intelligence ministry’s counterespionage department.

Of course, Trump had to say something on the matter in usual fashion, through Twitter.

“The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do, their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!”


According to Iran, the U.S. recruited spies at scientific conferences around the world, then made promises that included money, a job in the U.S. or medical aid. The Iranian nationals would allegedly be tasked with collecting information for the U.S. Which, makes total sense.

What’s more is how in the bloody hell would Trump know anything with regards to this matter, he barely gives any credit to nor pays much attention when his own intelligence community offers up any intel, on any matter. Then you have the obvious question, why would the intelligence community even inform Donald Trump of any spies they might have recruited from Iran given Trump’s tenacious ability to inform world leaders of US intel.

U.S. tensions with Iran have been escalating in the wake of the U.S. pulling out of the international agreement to try to stem Iran’s nuclear ambitions, which the US is failing at, rather horribly. We also recently ramped up sanctions against Iran. On Thursday, it said one of its Navy ships took down an Iranian drone but, according to Iran that intel is not entirely accurate.

Trump’s rather ill thought out tweet yesterday further shows his reluctance to either work with or hammer down on Iran. So far, Iran is winning the war of words.

Iran Killing US Spies?


U.S. Central Intelligence Agency

Cristal M Clark

Iranian officials have announced today that 17 people have been captured who were all spies who happened to be working for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. That’s a rather unusual number of spies to have captured and subsequently killed and/or jailed.

Yes, Iran admitted that some have been sentenced to death while others are imprisoned. Iran claims that each of the individuals were trained by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and they claim to know just how that happened considering all of the so-called US spies are actually Iranian citizens.


At the briefing held by Iran’s head of counter espionage, an official claimed the 17 accused were lured into spying while applying for or renewing U.S. visas or while attending conferences abroad with promises of money and opportunities to work in the United States. While the United States seems a little weary of talking about CIA recruitment abroad, not to mention that U.S. officials have not yet responded to the allegations.

The accused were given surveillance equipment by handlers to place in sensitive government locations and received “extensive training” by the CIA in order to communicate from Iran without being detected, officials claimed. They were also given fake identification. Some of those captured agreed to cooperate with Iranian authorities and are now helping to work against the U.S., officials said.

NBC News has obtained a copy of the files that they say include audio exchanges between alleged CIA operatives and their Iranian sources, business cards and photos of alleged CIA officers and their families, and a copy of an Iranian documentary that claims to uncover the identities of the alleged spies.

On Friday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard seized a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.

Senior U.S. defense officials said that U.S. Marines jammed an Iranian drone in the Gulf of Hormuz on Thursday, bringing it down and destroying it.

A U.S. surveillance drone was also shot down last month by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. In the aftermath of the incident, President Donald Trump confirmed that he was “cocked and loaded” to strike Iranian targets but decided to call the strikes off, saying the loss of life would make it a disproportionate response.


This news breaks as tensions rise between the US and Iran, and who is to say what the US will do if anything given Trump’s rather lackadaisical take on such matters. If anything, Iran is showing the world that they are a forced not to be fucked about with.

As to the spies Iran claims to have, it would appear that the US as per the norm will quietly walk away and leave them to figure it out on their own.
