Facebook’s Newest Venture: Sex Trafficking
Facebook Continues to Make Bad Headlines
Cristal M Clark
Facebook hasn’t been one to really give a shit the past few years about any of its data leaks, tracking users without permission, allowing the spread of misinformation, and now not surprising sex trafficking.
No, you didn’t read that wrong, facebook according to a newly released report published by the Human Trafficking Institute is the most commonly used social media platform for human sex trafficking recruitment in the US.
Bravo Mark Zuckerberg, bra-fucking-vo, Mark.
Facebook was the most common platform for child recruitment, with the report noting that “65% of child victims recruited on social media were recruited through Facebook.” That is over half of the online recruitment effort, over half!
Facebook, by the way, is not really all that popular with teens, while roughly 70% of American adults frequent the site, it is not the favored platform among teens. Roughly 51% of teems used the network, while YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat took the top spots in a 2018 survey. Yet, the report says, “Despite Facebook’s reputation as a less popular platform among teenagers, it was a more common platform for recruiting child victims than adult victims in 2020 active sex trafficking cases.”
Why is that? Because Facebook has some frighteningly lax rules, allows for rampant stalking, does very little to thwart obvious scams, phishing attempts, bots and the like. And, Facebook encourages users to share detailed intel about one’s life. I am sure you have all seen the posts, the shitty memes that ask seemingly innocent questions.
These bulishit memes are designed to obtain even more information about you, scammers and even sex traffickers utilize that information to steal your identity for the purpose of scamming banks and credit card companies out of money, some use it to stalk people and others, to sex traffic.
The problem is not the users, the problem is the platform itself.
If the platform really cared at all about users it would in fact not allow for so much personal information to be shared and would in fact stop these bogus memes, questions tossed out to readers and the like.
The point is, users of the platform are simply and only the almighty dollar sign to Mark Zuckerberg and to the platform’s advertisers.
The clear and obvious answer here is that the platform should face strict regulation. I know people don’t like that, but none of you want your daughters sex trafficked so choose one or the other here. Telling kids not to do something is like trying to wrangle feral cats.
The platform either needs to be taken offline or it needs to be heavily regulated and held accountable for a change.

Back by Popular Demand: Anonymous Issues Threat Against Elon Musk
Unsure if Elon Took it Seriously
Cristal M Clark
An individual wearing the signature Guy Fawkes Anonymous mask posted on YouTube and Facebook on Saturday, a warning to Elon Musk “This is a message from Anonymous for Elon Musk, for the past several years you have enjoyed one of the most favorable reputations of anyone in the billionaire class because you have tapped into the desire that many of us have to live in a world with electric cars and space exploration, but recently your carefully created public image is being exposed and people are beginning to see you as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention, it appears that your quest to save the world is more rooted in a superiority and savior complex than it is an actual concern for humanity.”
“This has been obvious to your employees for a long time, who have faced intolerable conditions under your command for years. It is also obvious to the young children working in your overseas lithium mines, which are destroying the local environment as well.”
“It seems that the games you have played with the crypto markets have destroyed lives.”
“Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives. Of course, they took the risk upon themselves when they invested, and everyone knows to be prepared for volatility in crypto, but your tweets this week show a clear disregard for the average working person.”
“As hardworking people have their dreams liquidated over your public temper tantrums, you continue to mock them with memes from one of your billion-dollar mansions, you may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match. We are Anonymous! We are legion. Expect us.”
In short the group is accusing Elon of ruining lives by manipulating cryptocurrency markets, the video was posted after Musk posted cryptic tweets on Thursday night suggesting he was ending his relationship with Bitcoin, which in turn caused the cryptocurrency to tumble in value.
What’s striking about the reports of the video is that social media erupted with support for Anonymous. Several users expressed that they missed the old Anonymous who would stand up for the little guy and actually do something. Maybe the support comes frustration over lack of wages, housing, the loss of democracy in the United States, bat shit crazy politicians, crooked, lying presidents, and the fact that we are still facing horrible issues brought about by the worldwide pandemic in this nation. In fact, some users expressed an overwhelming feeling that they hope Anonymous is making a comeback so as to help people worldwide.
Who knows if the group has more plans as we emerge from this pandemic but for the time being everyone is wondering just what Elon thinks of the threat, or what will really come of it.

Covid 19 Didn’t Develop Naturally?
Dr. Fauci Isn’t Convinced That it Did.
Cristal M Clark
Now that we are winding down from the global pandemic that killed an estimated as of today, many in the medical and scientific communities are starting to raise the alarm bells on just where Covid 19 came from.
It does seem all too convenient to have come from a bat? I mean this isn’t a movie, people actually died, many endured health issues long after having the virus…it does seem more plausible that the virus was made in a lab.
Doctor Anthony Fauci said recently that he is “not convinced” COVID-19 developed naturally and called for further investigation into the virus’s origins after the lab-leak theory had been dismissed by many as a right-wing conspiracy theory for months. I personally would not go as far as to say the theory was dismissed, rather the world decided we needed a vaccine in order to slow the spread of the virus so as to protect the human race.
Now that we have vaccines, time and effort can be dedicated to the true origins of the virus. Let’s be brutally honest about a couple of things. China lacked the ability to be forthcoming and honest about the virus when it was wiping out people in Wuhan, they even went as far as jailing whistleblowers. I doubt that China would be honest if the virus in fact leaked from a lab in Wuhan. The Wuhan Institute of Virology, just so happens to be where scientists perform research on bat coronaviruses. Dr. Ralph Baric, a virologist in the U.S., has been collaborating with Dr. Shi Zhengli from the Wuhan Virology Institute, sharing his discoveries about how to create superviruses. By the way, Dr. Ralph has been collaborating with the Wuhan Virology Institute for years as it just so happens to be. It is more plausible that the virus in fact, came from a lab in Wuhan rather than having occurred naturally. Perhaps it is time to stop putting funding into research developing superviruses that can wipe out entire populations, kill, cause lifelong illness and destroy economies and start putting money into research that, oh, I don’t know, is designed to save our fuckng planet?
This virus made its way around the globe a little too quickly, too easily and part of that is because China didn’t really want to warn the world of what it had done and allowed for people to travel worldwide before it became evident to the entire planet that China had been less than honest.
The WHO disagrees that the virus grew in a lab but has offered little not no proof that the virus is a natural virus. If you think that is the only lab in the world creating superviruses, you might want to think again. Everyone watched this pandemic sweep the globe, bad actors watched it. They saw how easy it was to hide the truth about its origins and how quickly it swept through the planet. They have also watched an entire world go to great lengths in an attempt to not find the true origin of the virus out of ear that it actually was created in a lab in Wuhan that just so happens to specialize in the fine art of creating superviruses, coronaviruses….
What’s the next lab grown virus that gets out going to bring us?

Facebook to Users – Fuck You
Data Breach Exposes 530 Million Facebook Users
Cristal M Clark
The hits keep coming for Facebook users, over 530 million users information has yet again been exposed and this time Facebook is refusing to tell which users were affected by the massive data breach. Basically, Facebook is giving every user on it’s site the middle finger on this one.
Users whose personal data was lifted in a breach sometime before August 2019 and was recently made available in a public database. Phone numbers, full names, locations, some email addresses, and other details from user profiles were posted to an amateur hacking forum.
In response to the reporting, Facebook said in a blog post on Tuesday that “malicious actors” had scraped the data by exploiting a vulnerability in a now-defunct feature on the platform that allowed users to find each other by phone number. Get this, those fucks actually found the vulnerability back in 2019 and didn’t say a word to anyone. Hoping I am sure that no one would have ever figured it out.
It’s time to call out Facebook for what it really is, a bad actor. While Facebook touts itself as a safe, family friendly social media site, the truth is that it is in fact, not that. Not that at all. They allow for users to name call and harass one another, choosing to single out specific users that they would like to silence. Not to mention the site panhandles so much fake news and misinformation at an alarming rate that quite frankly it should be shut down and banned on the internet.
Facebook and instagram both also allow for the illegal sales of controlled substances and willingly turn a blind eye to the prevalent issues.
The simple truth is, Facebook is a dying breed and should face severe consequences for its continual misrepresentations of what the site really is, the continued data breaches and for the way in which is mismanages misinformation campaigns, infiltration by hate groups and for allowing on multiple occasions, live video of suicides and mass shootings. Not to mention the way that users are stalked and messaged by scam artists, it’s deplorable.
Overall, Facebook should get a thumbs down. It’s time the United States Government did more in an effort to shut this bad actor site down than just offer up hearings that serve as nothing more than lip service.
Facebook is nothing but a toxic waste dump.

America – A Divided Nation or Just The Wrong People in Charge?
Mass Shootings, Livable Wages, Religious/Corporate Greed
Cristal M Clark
They say that to understand the problems in America, one must understand who profits from them. Nothing could be more true than that.
For every mass shooting, for the survivors and families of the victims, it brings back the mental anguish, the unbearable pain they felt and endured. It all comes back whenever another mass shooting takes place.
And now we are being told that while we come out of the pandemic we as a nation could possibly see an uptick in mass shootings.
For a while, we have a war of words between those that want better gun control and gun activists, we hear politicians tell each other off, promise change, hurl untrue accusations at one another and then do absolutely nothing to address the goddamn issue. Nothing, not a single thing. I watched that slob Ted Cruz running his mouth the very next fucking day last week after the shooting. What an inept sniveling, lying child of a man.
Last week we saw yet another mass shooting here in America, in Boulder, Colorado. People who were doing midday grocery shopping, gunned down by a raging lunatic. Immediately after, the NRA started a campaign saying that the Democrats were coming for your guns.
No tact whatsoever, just a baseless claim in an effort to get American’s to freak out over second amendment rights and further profit from gun sales.
Fuck the NRA and Fuck gun nuts who tout the second amendment as a god given right. It isn’t, plain and simple. America is the only place in the world where it’s easier to get your hands on a gun than it is to secure a car loan. Those are facts folks.
So when I here gun nuts going off about second ammendment rights, you know what fuck you, I do want to take your guns.
The issue is mental health and like it or not, if anyone is deemed mentally unwell, we should be taking their guns away. Drugs can affect mental health, substance abuse, medication, age, life events. When one is deemed mentally unwell, he/she should by default lose the perceived right to own a gun. Likewise, if someone is housing a mentally unwell individual, by equal default they should also forfeit their right to have guns in the home so long as said individual lives with them.
For gun rights activists this concept is viewed as an intrusion. They are refusing to acknowledge and address that elephant in the room. What they care about is money, division among us and themselves. They could give a shit less about the 10 individuals who were gunned down last week and murdered.
An argument could be made about how unmanageable the idea of taking guns away from mentally unwell people would be yet the reality is simply that it is not such a difficult task that it cannot be done. It really could be as simple as registering one’s car, if Doctors and law enforcement worked together. The DMV knows if you have automobile insurance without having to see a card because insurers report that intel to the DMV via the internet, a system you know. Addressing gun ownership and mental health issues could be resolved utilizing the same check and balance, as well as courts who are dealing with criminals. Feed that into a system and allow law enforcement to unarm dangerous individuals once and for all. The same can be done when people go on certain medications or if someone is abusing drugs or alcohol to such an extent that it very well could lead to them becoming dangerous.
Truly American responsible gun owners would not take issue with it and understand the word “right” and stop behaving as if it is your privilege.
Another issue here in America that we have fallen witness to is the idea of livable wages. I am not sure who the fuck believes $15 per hour is a livable wage, allow me to educate you, its not a livable wage you wankers. Anywhere. Spare the argument that by raising minimum wage the cost of a burger will go up. I hate to break it to you, the cost of everything has far outpaced wages in this country since the 2000s due to…ahhh greed.
Those that continue to vote down a $15 an hour minimum wage are the same who want to jail you for taking voters a bottle of water while they wait in line to vote, which by the way happens to be a fucking right in this country. It’s about maintaining the control over you that they lost during the last presidential election. Here we see this white trash GOP treating voting as a privilege rather than what is, which is a right in this country. Which is funny, because all I ever hear from GOP supporters who also support these types of moves is that they don’t want us to be like other countries, yet here we are, aren’t we? Taking away voter rights sure in the hell sounds like some third world country bullshit to me.
Remember, these people you voted for, in particular those in the GOP do not care about you, they care only about themselves and what they can gain from your failure and suffering. By keeping you down, don’t forget they serve us, not we them.
This is one of the only countries where corporations and religious entities are given tax cuts and still allowed to abuse and mistreat the very human beings who make them what they are. We tax the poor to the point they cannot afford food and reward the rich and church through tax breaks.
Tell me that is not the most fucked up notion you have ever seen?
No matter which side you are on, if you cannot be a decent human being, it makes you pretty unamerican.
Christianity quite frankly and its hold on this nation is all too terrorist like and it is about time that the FBI start to take a hard and clear look at that, it’s time to come to realistic terms with the idea that organized religion has its icey grips on this nations neck which makes them akin to groups like ISIS. They keep telling people that Trump is a prophet while failing to read their very own teachings upon the subject of the false prophet who comes before the real one does. Trust me, I see that garbage all over FaceBook these days. The point being is that they finally made their move which has been all too clear for those of us watching them, they did what terrorist leaders do in that one fatal move.
So what do we do to fix everything in this country? Well the first step really should be to rid ourselves of the aging, dying GOP. They have gone off the path of righteousness and fallen victim to of greed, stupidity, rumors, lies and untruths in an effort to control citizens of this nation. Under the GOP we would no longer be, home of the free.

QAnon Movement Echos Sovereign Citizen Movement
Radicalized American Citizens
Cristal M Clark
After QAnon became effectively radicalized by Donald J Trump over the course of four years, the movement whose ideals echo that of the Sovereign Citizen Movement have become a bit more than just whack job conspiracy theorists – they are now deranged and dangerous. When an idea becomes an action once, it will continue to become an action until it is effectively stopped.
According to the latest prediction by QAnon tomorrow will be a day of action and the day that Donald J Trump takes office once again.
Whatsmore is that fanning the flames quietly in a nod of encouragement, which feeds the fire, Trump’s DC hotel has raised its prices currently sighting demand, which further acts as a silent suggestion or invitation if you will, to come on down and start something.
So many people ask me why, why do these people fall pretty to the ideology of movements like QAnon? Some of what they believe are things like 911 was faked by the US Government, Sandy Hook was staged, the list goes on, these groups even have so called video evidence that educated and reasonable individuals walk away shaking our heads wondering how or why people can subscribe to such silly, whacky ideas, honestly.
I’ve written about the psychological make-up of these types of people back when Trump was elected back around 2016.
These are not reasonably sane people. They know right from wrong enough so as to know violence is wrong, it’s breaking the law but the way they view the law, politics, this country is fucked up, really fucked up.
They heard what they wanted to hear several times, it spoke to something they felt inside and becoming part of a movement like QAnon gives them a purpose, they feel empowered, like they are given knowledge no one else has access to. By default many of them do have narcissistic character traits while others do suffer from some form of mental illness.
Either way, they are brainwashed, quite easily.
What makes this all the worse is that fairly early on, I questioned them owning weapons back around 2016, wrote about it extensively and subtly hinted at the fact that the United States needed to do more so as to stop individuals from these radicalized movements from owning weapons including, taking them away over the individuals propensity to become enraged and react violently.
But, I was not the only one who tried to raise the alarm bells.
Enter four years later and you have the attack on the US Capitol.
At some point in time, we must stop sweeping these radicalized terrorist movements under the rug and dealing with them headon. We must ensure that they do not have access to weapons and some need to be hospitalized for deprogramming.
That will upset people but it’s what we must do in order to keep our nation safe from these terrorist movements that are based off of lies, manipulation and misinformation.
It’s fairly clear the whoever is running QAnon, is simply running for the hardon and then subsequently getting off when they see an act of domestic terrorism, people having full blown fits of rage in public over wearing a facemask.
The amount of misinformation and fake news spewing from QAnon more than prove the movement is nothing more than an attempt to agitate, to disrupt, to see how many people can be duped and how many levels of people they can dupe. We do have some individuals in office right now that share in these movements’ ideologies, or they have but now deeply regret it, the point is, the movement found away all the way to Capitol Hill in the minds of politicians who support the movement and that is not good.
The process QAnon uses in order to brainwash and recruit is not unlike terrorist organizations. It is only a matter of time before groups like this go from being simple movements to outright terrorist organizations.

Calling Out Bars?
Colorado – Grizzly Rose
Cristal M Clark
Today whilst checking my Facebook, I noted an article by local Fox news affiliate, KDVR. The article which sparked it’s own sort of outrage depicted Denver’s very own Grizzly Rose bar. Apparently someone was at the venue this past weekend and the snitch shot video of patrons not wearing masks or social distancing. The video was blurry at best, in fact from what I saw of it, most people were wearing masks, while others were not.
This opened up a flood of comments from pissed off readers and viewers who thought overwhelmingly that the news story was in fact underwhelming and in poor taste. Truly it did not depict the other side of the situation and only focused on one brief yet fleeting moment in time. Readers were upset the news station had the audacity to waste its time with such a story, others were upset because they felt it really was not that big of a deal, at least not breaking news, worthy. Some argued that those in attendance will now be going home, to work or school to spread the virus, while others said that the attendees are selfish cruel human beings.
The truth is, this is a virus, I had it and it sucked but it is a virus. We cannot escape the virus, it’s like the cold or the flu, it is going to spread no matter what and that is a simple, gut wrenching fact.
So what do we do to help stop the spread? Wear masks and socially distance when out in public, unless you are at a venue drinking and partying. The truth is, most of the attendees seen not socially distancing and not wearing a mask at the venue do in fact wear masks and socially distance the majority of the time so, they are doing their part to stop the spread in most situations. Masks don’t stop the virus, they simply help slow the spread, so if I have it and I am wearing a mask, I am less likely to pass it to someone else. Most spreaders of the virus don’t even know that they have it.
Second, we should stop focusing on controlling businesses, the general public and the like and focus on vaccinations and protecting the vulnerable and the elderly, meaning those groups should be staying home and not going out into public.
But if anyone thinks the Grizzly Rose story is breaking news, you are kidding yourself. In fact, here in Colorado some establishments stop taking credit card after a certain time of night and accept cash only just to stay open, serve alcohol and still make the money needed to keep staff employed and pay those bills that have not been affected by the pandemic. Do you think those establishments give a flying fuck if anyone is masking up or socially distancing? Hardly.
At least the Grizzly Rose tried to get patriots to comply.
I’ve said this before, I am not for shutting businesses down, limited capacity and preventing people from living life normally at all. All any of that does is kill an economy and does very, very little so as to prevent the spread of a virus. I go back to isolate the vulnerable, the sick and the elderly and leave everyone else alone.
Granted the vulnerable and elderly are not going to like that take but that population is considerably less than the healthy working population is, the Government would have had a much easier time taking care of them than the massive amounts of people who lost jobs because the United States freaked the fuck out and started shutting everything down.
Whatsmore, if you step into any grocery or big box store, half the people in those places cannot manage to wear a mask correctly and they are usually packed with shoppers, daily.
The reason we failed with controlling the spread is because we attempted to control human beings from simply being able to live life. The government did not pay us to sit at home so people got restless and also lost trust because as states started to reopen, many learned that they had no job to return to, no assistance came to cover the bills that never took a break, businesses were forced to close no just temporarily but forever because no help came for them.
Businesses should have been encouraged to allow workers to work from home, restaurants and bars should have encouraged takeout, outdoor seating long before governments allowed for it, but nothing should have been shut down, ever.
I hope the Grizzly Rose does not get into trouble, from what I saw those patrons needed the night out to blow off both stress and steam. We should be looking back at our own government and asking them where the help is so that these establishments can pay those bills and keep staff employed, not punishing them for living the American Fucking Dream.

End of the Republican Party
Not Prosecuting Trump Signals End to Pussy Republican Party
Cristal M Clark
A growing number of Republican’s are now backing off on support to have a Senate Trial to Impeach Donald J Trump which in turn is going to cause the inevitable downfall of the party. You can keep Trump’s supporters; the number of individuals who voted Trump out of office in fact out number the Republican Voters who voted for Trump.
What is truly and utterly disturbing about this is the number of Republican’s who are willing to let this guy blatantly break the law and get away with it. Which is upsetting the voters by the way in case you know they care to actually get out and see what voters are saying. They just don’t want to bother with a whole Trial, saying it would not do the US any good.
Really, then the fuck do we bother ourselves with putting murders, rapists, cop killers, armed robbers, shop lifters or anyone else who breaks the law on Trial?
This move more than ever just ensures that this is the end of the Republican party. So, let’s just stand out of the way and let them fall over like dominoes.
