Why People Choose to Believe in the False Rape Lawsuit Against Trump and Why People Choose to Ignore Hillary Clinton’s Successful Defense of a Rapist in the Rape Case of Kathy Shelton

This election year has been insane, no doubt about it. I’m just ready for it to be over so we can all start dealing with the aftermath of whoever wins, but until then, I came across an OccupyDemocrats video on a friend’s Facebook post speaking about the rape lawsuit filed against Donald Trump. I looked it up myself, first Snopes (http://www.snopes.com/2016/06/23/donald-trump-rape-lawsuit/), the California lawsuit filed in April 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/doc/310835987/Donald-Trump-Lawsuit), and the New York based lawsuit filed by the same person in June 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/doc/316341058/Donald-Trump-Jeffrey-Epstein-Rape-Lawsuit-and-Affidavits) which was then voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff in September 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/document/324233182/Jane-Doe-v-Donald-J-Trump-and-Jeffrey-E-Epstein), only to be filed AGAIN in September 2016 for a third lawsuit.This is such a huge mess, here’s the docket from both those New York lawsuits.

June 2016 Lawsuit Docket, Voluntarily Dismissed

docket1

September 2016 Docket, Still Pending

docket2

(James Cheney Mason was co-counsel for Casey Anthony in 2011.)

Here’s more court docs: the California in forma pauperis filing (https://www.scribd.com/doc/310836504/Katie-Johnson-Trump-Lawsuit), the New York amended complaint, the second docket filed September 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/document/326057027/Amended-Complaint-Filed-9-30-2016), the Jane Doe declaration as filed in June 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/document/326057168/Jane-Doe-Declaration-as-Filed), the Tiffany Doe declaration as filed in June 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/document/326057237/Tiffany-Doe-Declaration), and the Voluntary dismissal of Jane Doe’s New York lawsuit in September 2016 (https://www.scribd.com/document/324233182/Jane-Doe-v-Donald-J-Trump-and-Jeffrey-E-Epstein).

Now, here are the facts and the confusing parts about them:

  1. Jane Doe was 13 years old in 1994.
  2. In summer of 1994, Jane Doe attended several parties hosted by Epstein in which Trump attended. Why she continued to attend these parties after the first sexual assault is beyond any victim who has been sexually assaulted.
  3. Jane Doe attended these parties on the promises of money and a modeling contract. Her main goal, despite the alleged sexual assaults and rapes and the sodomy that occurred on at least 4 separate occasions was money and a modeling contract. If she continued going to these parties where she experienced these so called horrible sexual things against her will…why did she keep attending? No one held a gun to her head and made her go. She attended out of her own free will because of her own greed and wanting a modeling career.
  4. Other underage girls were said to be in attendance of these parties for the same reason.
  5. Tiffany Doe had promised to pay Jane Doe for attending said parties, however, it’s unclear as to whether payment was made. It can only be assumed that payment was made as Jane Doe continued to attend these parties after the first occasion of where she claimed to be sexually assaulted by Trump.
  6. Tiffany Doe recruited Jane Doe to attended said parties.
  7. Jane Doe alleges that she was sexually assaulted and raped by Trump and Epstein on four and two separate occasions, respectively. It was said in the first court document that Jane Doe was sexually assaulted by Epstein on three occasions in which the third resulted in Epstein raping her.
  8. In the first court filing, Tiffany Doe was said to have witnessed or was made aware of three sexual assaults against Jane Doe by Epstein and would be testifying to that fact. However, in Tiffany Doe’s declaration, Tiffany Doe stated that she personally witnessed or was immediately made aware of two occasions in which Epstein had sexually abused Jane Doe.
  9. Both Jane Doe and Tiffany Doe alleges that a 12 year old Maria Doe was murdered by Trump and Epstein.
  10. Jane Doe’s June 2016 informa pauperis filing reveals that she has not held a job since 2008, in which she neither paid taxes and only made $200-$300 per month as a freelance model in 2008. This is a huge cause for concern. Here is someone who doesn’t seem to have any source of income and hasn’t been employed in over 8 years and lives in California. Yet, she is asking for $100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars) in damages for willingly attending said parties over the course of four months in summer of 1994 in which she alleges that she was sexually assaulted and raped against her will, of which parties she was promised and allegedly paid for attending and continued to attend. So here is someone who does not hold a job, has not held a job, more likely doesn’t even want to hold a job, yet is greedy, greedy enough to attend paid parties as a teenager where she alleges to have been a victim of sexual abuse but continues going to these parties because of money and because of wanting a modeling career.

There are many things wrong with this court case, or series of related court cases. The biggest thing is discrepancies and lies. Discrepancies such as the number of times Jane Doe had been sexually abused by Epstein. Lies included the address and phone number filed in court papers for Jane Doe in California which led to an abandoned property and the phone number went straight to voice mail. Lies also included the alleged conspiracy between Epstein and Trump concerning Jane Doe by making her their sex slave. Dictionary.com defines a sex slave as, “a person who is forced into prostitution and held against their will” (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/sex-slave). Jane Doe willingly attended paid parties over the course of several months in which she was never confined nor held prisoner against her will by either Epstein nor Trump. She was not a sex slave by any means and was never forced into prostitution. Through her own greed, she willingly took money in payment for attending such parties and giving sex. If she was ever sexually assaulted against her will, she would’ve immediately stopped attending such parties like any normal person who have encountered a traumatic event and distanced herself from Tiffany Doe, Epstein, Trump, and such places. Jane Doe admitted to attending at least four separate parties, at which ever time, she could have just stopped attending but she chose to go.

In 1994, Jane Doe, being only 13 years old, said she traveled to New York City, assuming from California, to pursue a modeling career. Jane Doe did not mention whether she was traveling alone or with a parent or guardian, but I find it incredibly hard to believe someone at that age traveled alone across a country without a job, a guardian, a place to stay, and money. So where were Jane Doe’s parents in all of this? Were they aware of their little girl attending parties or being gone for lengths of time away from them? This is pretty far fetched, that a parent would allow their child to travel across a country alone without any financial means nor means of getting around. Greyhound does not allow unaccompanied minors between ages 8-14 to travel alone on a trip longer than five hours (https://services.greyhound.com/en/ticketsandtravel/childrentraveling.aspx) along with other conditions that have to be met. So if Jane Doe traveled by bus to New York City in June 1994 alone, she would’ve have to only been living within a five hour radius which excludes California.

According to Jane Doe and Tiffany Doe, another minor, Maria Doe, was seen once and then disappeared, allegedly murdered by Epstein and Trump and used at a later date to force Jane Doe into another sexual assault at another party which Jane Doe keeps attending willingly. It’s hard to believe that Trump has killed anyone, because he hasn’t. He has never made anyone disappear nor has anyone in his present company disappeared, nor have any witnesses testifying against him in various lawsuits and scandals have mysteriously committed suicide and the whole lot, unlike Hillary Clinton who has an entire list of dead bodies to account for. To allege that Trump has killed a 12 year old child, it’s interesting to wonder why there isn’t a missing child report on this 12 year old Maria Doe or why Trump and Epstein didn’t just kill Jane Doe when they were done with her. It’s interesting why they just didn’t kill her now. It would make sense that she’s still alive, if she even existed in the first place, because they’re not killers and they never have been. If Maria Doe was 12 in 1994 and mysteriously vanished as alleged, someone would’ve reported her missing. In 1994, Missingkids.com reported 7 cases of children missing from June 1994 to December 1994 (http://www.missingkids.com/search), none of them the correct age for a Maria Doe and none of them missing around the correct time.

Tiffany Doe, allegedly employed by Epstein for over ten years as a party planner, in which one of which her duties included trafficking young girls to his alleged sex parties, is not a reliable witness. Tiffany Doe, according to her own declaration, is at best someone who entices and pays young girls to attend parties where sexual activities occur, or at worst, is a sex trafficker of young girls. I can’t decide which she is yet, if she too, exists. In 1990, when Tiffany Doe was 22, she attended a series of parties held by Epstein in which she was paid to entertain his guests. Pretty much, she prostituted herself. In 1991, she was promoted from a prostitute to a party planner in which her duties were to get attractive adolescent girls to attend the same parties she prostituted herself at, entertaining Epstein’s guests. Number eleven of her declaration states: “It was my job to personally witness and supervise encounters between the underage girls that Mr. Epstein hired and his guests”. Jane Doe states in the California filed court documents that there have been “scores of teenagers, and pre-teen girls were used as sex slaves by Defendant Epstein and Defendant Trump” at these sex parties. Now, it’s hard to imagine one person being able to witness the interaction between these scores of teenagers and pre-teen girls being sexually assaulted by Epstein and Trump. Apparently, there’s no other guests, thank goodness, otherwise, Tiffany Doe would have a really difficult time trying to be in many places at once. Where are these scores of teenagers and pre-teen girls that were used at sex slaves by Epstein and Trump at these sex parties? Did they all disappear like Maria Doe? Why again was Jane Doe the only one who hasn’t disappeared? And is being paid to willingly attend sex parties really against someone’s will? Afterall, Tiffany Doe admitted to prostituting herself to Epstein and many of his clients before being employed by him into hiring other girls, a decade younger than she was, to attend the same parties entertaining guests with sexual activities.

California doesn’t have the same laws as New York. In New York, it’s considered rape to have sex with anyone under seventeen, even if that sex was consensual. Moving courts from California to New York, Jane Doe specifically states that law because even if she did consent to being paid for sex, as was Tiffany Doe’s job of hiring her for such alleged sex parties, it would make her consent void and therefore, it would be rape under New York Penal Code § 130.05(3)(a). Isn’t this interesting because as a defense, Hillary Clinton said that the rape victim Kathy Shelton was ” emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing” and therefore, was ordered to undergo extensive psychiatric testing at the age of 12 (https://www.scribd.com/doc/229667084/State-of-Arkansas-V-Thomas-Alfred-Taylor). Clinton talked down the pleas from rape to a lesser charge that carried five years, four of which was suspended to probation.

So, there’s this alleged rape lawsuit of a 13 year old against Trump in which everyone wants to shout out how horrible of a person Trump is while Clinton defended the 41 year old rapist of a 12 year old girl and successfully lowered his sentence to a year in prison and no one wants to get upset about that?

Yesterday, I was having a discussion with a friend on Facebook about people being upset on how Trump bragged twelve years ago that because he’s rich and well known, women let him do whatever he wanted with them. The person said people were upset that Trump was outright bragging about sexually assaulting women without their consent. In actuality, Trump specifically said that the women allowed him to do whatever he wanted, so that meant that they did give consent. And that’s pretty much the same thing that is happening here. People want to see what they want to see. And unfortunately, they want to add whatever else they believe according to their own biases against someone that makes things worse than they are.

Finally, my friend said, “I’m actually far more concerned by the fact that Trump seems to be a fraud and an idiot, lacking both even a basic understanding of civics and foreign policy.

I replied with, “I’m concerned with the piles of bodies Hillary Clinton has left in her wake (along with her husband), the many women she’s silenced who have been having some kind of sexual affair with her husband, her incessant wish for a Third World War, nuclear war no less, her ties and financial donations from terrorist countries and companies that would benefit greatly in profit from a war, her mental stability and health, her election fraud, her emails and her lies…so yeah, I’d rather take someone a bit green with no experience than a war hungry, cold and calculating person who will destroy us for profit.

To which my friend conveniently just ignores…like how everyone else seems to ignore all the ugly and bad about Clinton and still want to vote for her anyway. If people’s only concerns about Trump being unfit for President because he’s a narcissistic asshole who likes to brag about how he can get any woman he wants because he’s rich and famous and who isn’t well versed in civics and foreign policy, then hell, I would rather take that narcissistic asshole who likes to brag about how he can get any woman he wants because he’s rich and famous and who isn’t well versed in civics and foreign policy over a calculated, greedy, murderous, warmongering, lying, cheating, corrupt asshole whose only good virtue is that she has a vagina and we’ve never had a vagina for President. Besides, the President has an entire cabinet of advisors who can help him or her make decisions. That’s their job and that’s why they’re there. The President doesn’t need to be a know-it-all. Neither Trump nor Clinton knows it all and that’s okay. But why really, do people hate Trump so much even if Hillary is basically the devil in disguise?

Trump is racist. Yeah, so is every single person in the world. We’re all racist against something, against someone, against a crap ton of things. I’m really racist against humans because there’s not enough zombies out there eating their brains. Stupid humans. Still, Trump wants to build a wall and limit illegal immigration and that suddenly makes him racist against Hispanics. There’s millions and millions of illegal immigrants in the United States. My mother believes Trump wants to kick out every person of color and leave all white people, which is why she hates him and which is also not true at all. Many people, like my mother, due to personal biases passing around and misinformation, believes that Trump will try to deport every person of color who is illegal, a resident, and even a citizen. Because of misinformation and fear, they hate him. Also ignorance. There is so much ignorance that goes into hating Trump. Most people don’t care enough to learn anything about him more than from the snippets of biased news and media they hear or see or memes on Facebook that they read. Yeah, he’s a jerk, they all concluded. But hey assholes, we’re all jerks, period. And maybe that, that realization that we’re all assholes is what doesn’t sit with people comfortably about Trump. He doesn’t care for the bullshit facade that people pretend they are. He doesn’t care to pretend to be someone he’s not. He’s real, like you and me. Trump makes people uncomfortable because in Trump, people see the shitty person they are, the one they hide from the public view, and they can’t live with themselves knowing they are indeed assholes. Jesus Christ, people. It’s okay to be an asshole. It’s okay to be human.

People say that Trump is the epitome of hatred. I find it funny that these same people are hating on Trump. I have never seen so many hate posts about someone that people don’t even know and most blatantly say they don’t care to know, they simply hate him. I’ve seen people talk about how racist Trump is and how he kicks people of color out of his rallies. One thing that all these people fail to mention is how the people that Trump kicked out of his rallies are protestors. No one talks about how wrong it is for Black Lives Matter folks to interrupt peaceful gatherings and even take the mic from presenters to start spouting their message, but Trump is racist because he kicks out protestors at his own rallies? People are fucking idiots. Calling someone a racist because they don’t agree with you doesn’t make them a racist. Trump isn’t racist because he throws out black kids shouting Black Lives Matter or people using profanity at his rallies. He has a right to a peaceful gathering without assholes trying to infringe on his right. And it’s absolutely that: assholes wanting to infringe on other people’s rights.

Everyone is an asshole. They can pretend not to be. The 30 black students all dressed in black at the Trump rally in Valdosta, Georgia were protestors and by right, should be kicked out. I don’t feel pity that they were kicked out. I don’t give a damn about the color of their skin. Their purpose was clear, to protest.

Some time ago, a Black Lives Matter co-founder was demanding that all cops be removed from black neighborhoods. I was tired of the fake racism bullshit, so I posted on Facebook saying that we should give them what they want, that we should take all cops out of black neighborhoods, and let black people kill themselves. It is a statistical fact that the majority of black people die from homicide and that the majority of homicides in black communities are committed by other black people. What the Black Lives Matter co-founder was asking was essentially, death to all black people. Of course, people got upset. I was called a racist. And no matter how I explained it and no matter what facts I pointed them to, I was just a mean, horrible racist person who wanted all black people dead. I didn’t even say I wanted black people dead. I said they can kill themselves. Big difference. And yes, they will die if all cops are taken out of black neighborhoods because cops are the ones that are actually saving black lives.

Three people unfriended me and because I actually did care about them at one point in time, it hurt me. I was wondering why they couldn’t see that the majority of black deaths is caused by violence from other black people. They only saw that white people killed black people. Black people killed black people, but of course that didn’t matter because it had to be racism that killed black people, not black people killing each other. And it’s this ignorance and blatant stupidity of refusing to believe that black are racist and Black Lives Matter is a racist hate group that produces fucking idiots like the people who unfriended me. I wasn’t shouting slogans of killing black people. I wasn’t destroying property, rioting in the streets, interrupting other people’s daily businesses, stopping traffic, aggressively and even violently protesting at peaceful gatherings, trying to burn black people alive, ordering that black people should be killed, hanged, and the picture posted to Twitter or some social media outlet…I wasn’t doing any of these things. Black people were doing these things against white people, but everyone else is racist? I utterly hate the bullshit racism lie. There is no systematic or institutional racism in America. There is no white privilege. If anything, white people are being systematically and institutionally discriminated against, by law, in favor of black people and minorities. Yet, black people cannot be racist. Black people can act like criminals and because they’re black, it’s racist if they’re jailed. I utterly hate this bullshit racism propaganda that does not exist.

And it does not exist because if black people were ever at a disadvantage because of their skin color, then we wouldn’t have a black president or black congress members or rich black people or black doctors or black justices or black cops or black governors and black mayors and BET. Yeah, BET. Of course the Oscars can be racist because there’s white people there, but BET can’t be racist because it’s full of black people and black people by their own skin color, can’t be racist? Fucking come on, ignorant and stupid people! Everyone is such a fucking asshole, I absolutely hate how people want to try and pretend they’re not like Trump when they are exactly like Trump except Trump doesn’t give a shit about being an asshole. He doesn’t play the fucking victim card or the vagina card or the race card or whatever fucking card assholes play to get everyone else to feel sorry for them. I’m a fucking asshole and I keep telling people that. It’s amazing that people keep fucking ignoring me and pretend to be surprised when I don’t fall in line with the media bullshit racist we hate all white people and we love all black people even if they’re fucking acting like crazy assholes. Yeah, I don’t give a shit about someone’s skin color. Be real. Don’t fucking play me for empathy. Don’t fucking pretend you’re owed free shit for things that happened hundreds of years ago to not you, and fucking be responsible and own up to your shit. I hate the racism bullshit lie and I will gladly be fucking racist against every stupid human being because they are fucking stupid and stupid does not help advance any species.

So anyways, got off topic there, but that’s my rant. To all you Trump haters who pretend like you’re not a hater, go look in a mirror because you are so totally hating for no reason other than snippets of media lies and crap you see on Facebook. To all the people who pretend that they’re not racist assholes, go look in a mirror because you are totally racist and an asshole. Own up to it. Fucking be you, whoever horrible, awful person you are, and be loud and proud of it. And that is why people hate Trump, because they are as ugly and hateful and racist as they say he is. They just don’t want to admit it because unlike Trump who has always been his asshole self, they are still pretending they’re the good guys. There are no fucking good guys. Remember, superheroes do not exist.

The “My Husband Doesn’t Need to See Your Boobs” Debate

It’s summertime. There’s lots of people half naked or mostly naked on a gorgeous beach somewhere or partying in the dusk with friends and loved ones. There’s going to be lots of legs, abs, butts, and chests all over social media in the coming months. And that’s normal. Again, it’s summertime.

If we were anything like European countries, we’d have naked people all over the place on beaches and social media, but we’re not like European countries. We’re a country of sexually repressed people who over-sexualizes men and women because seeing a naked body is, and has always been, taboo. Naked bodies are natural. People naked are natural. And yet, we’re not even talking about nakedness, we’re talking about nearly nakedness, about people in short shorts or spaghetti strap tanks because it’s hot outside. We’re talking about shirtless men and bikini clad women because it’s the beach and so on.

And some are offended because once in a while, their significant other will scroll down his Facebook feed and come across a picture of a female friend in barely nothing with shapely shoulders, deep collarbones, flat abs, and oh yeah, breasts covered with a bikini. And they will wonder if all of a sudden, their husbands and boyfriends are starting to imagine female friends in lingerie.

*sighs*

There was a blog post written in 2014 by a married woman titled, “My Husband Doesn’t Need to See Your Boobs”. Since it’s been taken off her website, it can be found here on the Internet Archive at: https://web.archive.org/web/20140612150401/http://applesandbandaidsblog.com/2014/06/11/my-husband-doesnt-need-to-see-your-boobs/

Lauren, the author, talks about how pictures of women in bikinis on the internet is a stumbling block in her marriage. Her own words below.

“I’m not writing to chastise you for posting your bikini pics from your lake outing…But I am writing to share the perspective of a woman who is fighting for her marriage. And for that reason, I want to tell you that I don’t need my husband to see your boobs…Anyways, what I’m saying is I don’t fault you…But I want to tell you that it’s a stumbling block in our marriage…Mostly I’m looking at your legs asking myself, How are there seriously people without cellulite????…And then I continue scrolling through my feed until something else seems interesting…I doubt my husband is so lucky. Actually, I know it’s next to impossible to take in images like those and erase them from his mind. Because our men are much less emotional and are much more visual. And as quickly as I can forget your picture, it is filed away in his mind, ready to be pulled back out whenever he so chooses…Again, I am not faulting you. And by no means am I faulting him. This man of mine diverts his eyes from whatever questionable images flash on the screen before him. But sometimes the temptation is too much…After Memorial Day, I noticed so much skin on social media that I half-yelled a warning to him as I ran out the door one morning. It’s summertime, honey! Beware the beach pics and half nude girls on Instagram! And like that, he was in solitary confinement from all virtual community for the next two days…Protecting his eyes, protecting his heart…I know you don’t mean anything by it. But I need to share one more thing with you…When your bare shoulders and stretchmark-less bellies and tanned legs pop up, I not only worry if my husband will linger over your picture. I worry how he will compare me to you…As I wrap myself into his arms at night, I wonder if he is seeing you there instead of my mess of a body left over from pregnancy. I wonder if he thinks I’m lazy and that I don’t take good care of myself. I wonder if he wishes I looked more like you than who I really am…And then the insecurity monster comes back to bite at our relationship again…me, begging for affirmation, and him tiring from saying the same thing over and over…Can I say it one more time? I’m not judging youBut would you, could you, keep your boobs out of my marriage? You can have your memories, and we can have our sacred hearts…”

 

I understand this. Insecurity and jealousy is a monster that rears its ugly head from time to time. I’ve been a victim to it. And I’ve allowed it to drive people around me crazy, but no more! There has to be a point in time when you shut out the criticizing voices in your head and demand, “enough is enough!” But unfortunately, some of us never reach that point. Some of us are still wondering if our husbands and boyfriends are thinking about someone else while they’re with us. And all their “I love yous” and all their “I’m committed” will mean nothing because we are afraid. We are afraid because we don’t love ourselves enough and because we don’t find ourselves worthy of our own love, we question the love that others have for us.

While I understand Lauren’s feelings, it’s also this type of perception that propels things like rape culture. It’s people saying, “Women, you need to cover up. Your shoulders are showing. Your pants are too tight. I can see your belly. You’re asking a man to rape you.” WTF? No, we’re not. A woman in a tank top because it’s hot outside isn’t asking for a man to come along and rape her. That’s not why she’s wearing a tank top. It’s damn hot outside and that’s why she wears a tank top.

I’ve always believed that you can never control another person. You can try, to no avail and much frustrations to both parties, but the only real thing you can control is your reaction to people and to situations. If people on social media in a small amount of clothing bothers you, then get off the computer and do something else. If you think your husband is staring at some female friend’s boobs on social media, then stop thinking! Even if your husband was looking at a picture of a female friend on his Facebook feed, it does not mean that he’s going to start comparing the two of you and start thinking about wanting to get with her instead. He chose you. That’s gotta mean more than your insecurities because you don’t like yourself enough. And yes, you don’t like yourself enough and that’s the real problem here. The problem isn’t your husband coming across pictures of female friends having fun at the beach in bikinis, but that you’re not ok with yourself. And having your husband reaffirm your worthiness, reaffirm your desirability, and even reaffirming his love for you isn’t going to be enough until you can learn to love yourself.

So stop comparing. Your husband isn’t comparing, only you are. So what if you think his female friends are attractive with perfect bodies? He might not even see them that way at all. One might be that annoying girl who always posts political things that he’d like to unfriend, but some of her posts might actually make sense once in a blue moon so he keeps her around. Another might be an old friend from high school that he doesn’t even talk to, but she was manager of their 20th high school reunion so she contacted him and he just never thought of unfriending her. Another might be someone who is close to one of his immediate family members like his sister or his mother so he keeps them around just in case they can’t get a hold of his sister or his mother. Whatever the reasons for him having female friends are, he has female friends and that’s ok. It doesn’t mean he’s constantly thinking about them naked or keeping them in his spank bank for private and intimate moments. It really doesn’t have to mean anything at all.

Telling him he can’t have female friends is trying to control him. Telling other females that they need to cover up is trying to control them. It’s also insulting to your husband that he’s so base, he can’t control himself when a picture of a decent looking woman pops up on his feed. It’s rape culture all over again.

Instead of worrying about how much hotter his female friends are, take a step back from your husband and think about yourself. Think about the things you like about yourself and the things you don’t like. Then try to connect the things you don’t like about yourself to the things you think he’s doing or thinking. You don’t like that you have cellulite. This one friend of his is always so tan with tone legs. So you think he’s finding her legs attractive and not yours because you don’t like your legs. But this is all just you over thinking! This is just all in your head! But you punish him for your own dislikes about yourself. Just because you don’t like your cellulite laden legs, you make a comment on how he shouldn’t be looking at female legs on the internet. He stays off the internet for two days just to make you happy because he loves you. Why does he have to suffer because you can’t love yourself? He shouldn’t and he doesn’t have to. Time and time again, he will choose you over anything and anyone else because he’s already chosen you. Let that sink in and then stop punishing him because you don’t feel good about yourself.

Lauren, like many other women, like myself, really need to get a grip on how we view ourselves and our self worth. We’ve got to stop blaming everyone else for not loving us enough or wanting to love us as how we are because we don’t love ourselves. It’s definitely going to be a work in progress, but it’s an easy start. All it takes is for you to do something nice for yourself. And nice doesn’t mean eating a piece of chocolate cake when you’re worried about your weight. Nice is a manicure. A foot massage. Anything as simple as putting on makeup or taking a shower. Do things that make you feel good about yourself. All in all, just take some time for yourself. Boyfriends and husbands are great, but you need alone time and so do they. Each one of you need time to just relax and be alone because it’s only in being alone that you can enjoy your own company and realize that you are not incomplete.

Good luck to you all.

Why Innocent People Like Janet Marcusse is Still Incarcerated After a Decade of Fighting for Her Freedom

Janet Marcusse is 58 years old and has spent the past decade fighting for her freedom behind federal prison walls after being falsely incarcerated, slandered, and sentenced to 25 years behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit.

Federal Prosecutors initially charged her with a “Ponzi scheme” in 2004, then switched their allegations when they were caught lying about the $7.5 million in investments to honest services fraud in which corrupt federal judge Robert Holmes Bell changed the jury instructions to advise that the government didn’t need to prove the defendants obtained any money or property or that anyone lost any money or property, basically uprooting the government’s burden to actually substantiate any evidence of the alleged crime.

After the jury voted “guilty” on the new charge, prosecutors resurrected their old, abandoned “Ponzi scheme” charge for sentencing and appeal, now lying that it was the jury who determined the Ponzi scheme to be a “fact” when the jury voted according to federal judge Bell’s jury changed instructions. Jan was given a 25-year sentence based on losses caused by others, making it an illegal sentence.

While the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals granted permission for Jan to file a pro se brief on her own behalf, Judges William Bertelsman, Jeffrey Sutton, and John Rogers ignored it in their 2008 decision in order to agree with prosecutors the jury found a “Ponzi scheme”. When Jan challenged the decision, the panel attested her issues had been “fully considered”, causing her “convictions” to be made “final”. When Jan challenged the panel in a petition for recall of the mandate for attorney and judicial fraud, they admitted they had “declined” to consider her issues, but refused to do anything about it.

In March, 2011, in response to Jan’s collateral attack petition under §2255, Judge Bell reversed course and held “a ‘Ponzi scheme’ was not an element of any charges brought”. Judge Bell has also refused to allow Jan’s innocence claim to even be filed, as based on the previously unavailable evidence obtained from the Dept. of Justice proving IRS Agent James Flink committed perjury over at least $9 million at trial, and as based on a new Supreme Court decision repudiating the charge as amended in the jury instructions to honest services fraud.

On June 17, 2011, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder appointed Michael Schipper as a judge for his part in successfully prosecuting this case, describing it as a “Ponzi scheme”.

On January 9, 2013, the evidence was obtained in FOIA litigation to prove a criminal fraudulent scheme was concocted at trial in which prosecutors, IRS agents, Judge Bell and defense counsel all colluded in the deliberate spoliation of Jan’s bank record evidence. They allowed her access to original bank record documents and even provided copies, except then objected to the use of these copies as defense evidence at trial as not in the bulk bank record exhibits by having removed the original documents and replaced them with the records supplied from the banks under subpoena.

The original bank records had been stolen from Jan by co-defendants Wesley and Diane Boss to conceal the evidence of their embezzlement of $1.5 million and given to the IRS. During the trial, however, prosecutors stacked the bulk bank record exhibits in boxes in front of the jury box, but first removed the original documents from them, leaving only the similar content documents provided under subpoena by the banks in the exhibits–documents to which Jan was not allowed access–a scheme which they believed allowed them to object every time Jan wanted to submit any of her copies as defense evidence as not from the bulk exhibits, acting as if she must have fabricated her evidence. This constitutes criminal activity in violation of 18 USC §§ 2,3, 2071 and 26 USC § 7214.

It’s because of reasons like this MSNBC article that Janet cannot get out of prison. The media only cares about things like Kim Kardashian’s butt or someone bashing a gay person. Everyone wants to jump in and help defend false freedoms of people’s lifestyles, why not defend something or someone worth defending? Obviously, many people’s lifestyles aren’t going to be accepted.

No offense to the entire LGBT community, but unless there’s ANY truth in the lies that were told in this article by the only non-transgender female quoted, then there’s no point in the advocacy of a more wicked society in which both the government and its people are corrupted. Those who have been at Tallahassee long enough to know how it works there will know that the very last sentence in this article is the biggest lie of all. There is no “ghetto” in Tallahassee and Tallahassee was where she spent the rest of her sentence until she was released months ago.

What aggravates me is that narcissistic arrogant selfish people can get the media to believe in their lies, but I can’t get one news station, even fake news, to write an article on Jan’s false incarceration with the mountain of evidence from court documents and tax court wins and transcripts and actual facts. But one day, she will be free. No thanks to all the people who try so hard to keep her there.

Here is the article link and the actual full article below. And if anyone is interested, below all this is my email reply to the ignorant reporter who wrote this article.

Does the LGBT movement ignore inmates?
11/14/14 09:49 PM By Emma Margolin-emma.margolin@nbcuni.com

More than 20 years have passed since the Supreme Court ruled in Farmer v. Brennan that prisoners could hold prison officials accountable for “deliberate indifference” to their safety. The landmark decision, issued on June 6, 1994, affirmed a constitutional responsibility on the part of custodial officials to protect those in their custody.

Today, however, LGBT inmates – particularly transgender women of color – experience harassment, discrimination, and violence while incarcerated, as well as alarming rates of being sucked into the criminal justice system. Prisoners’ rights advocates claim that the mainstream LGBT movement, now riding high on an unprecedented streak of victories in recent years, has largely ignored this set of concerns.

On Friday, the Columbia Center for Gender and Sexuality Law held a conference to discuss the legacy of Farmer, the movement to end abuse in detention centers, and the state of health care for LGBT prisoners, among other issues. If there were any positive takeaways to draw from the event, the best that could be said – as one audience member put it – was simply that “it could be worse.”

The negatives, however, were far more resounding.

“We have LGBT people now that’s hurting, hurting now and no action is taking place,” said Troy Isaac, a former juvenile hall and state prison inmate who now works with the group Just Detention International. At 12 years-old, Isaac was raped for being “effeminate” in the shower area of a California juvenile facility. “Staff members never listened to me,” he said.

Thirty-nine percent of gay male inmates said they’d been assaulted by other prisoners in a 2008 Department of Justice report. To compare, 3.5% of heterosexual male prisoners reported being sexually victimized by other inmates.

The statistics grow more grim when talking about transgender prisoners. Sexual assault is 13 times more prevalent among transgender inmates, a 2007 survey of California correctional facilities found, with 59% of transgender respondents reporting instances of sexual assault in detention. By comparison, 4.4% of the general inmate population reported experiencing sexual assault while in a California correctional facility.

Dee Farmer

In 1989, three years into her 20-year federal sentence for credit card fraud, Dee Farmer, a transgender woman, was transferred to a maximum-security penitentiary. Despite dressing as a woman, undergoing estrogen treatments, and having silicone breast implants, Farmer was held in custody in all-male prisons. Days after being transferred to USP-Terre Haute in Indiana, Farmer was raped at knife-point by another prisoner. She then filed a quixotic lawsuit without legal counsel against the Bureau of Prisons director, regional director, and other officials, alleging that they knew she would be sexually assaulted at USP-Terre Haute due to her feminine appearance.

After losing at both the federal district and appellate levels, Farmer successfully petitioned the Supreme Court for review.

“I really, really didn’t think I had a chance of getting approved,” said Farmer, who is currently incarcerated in a West Virginia federal prison, during a November interview with Just Detention International and the ACLU. In 1994, the Supreme Court agreed to hear .5% of cases filed by indigent plaintiffs, according to the human rights groups.

The high court ended up handing down a unanimous victory for Farmer stating that prison officials had a duty under the Eighth Amendment, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment, to protect prisoners from harm at the hands of other prisoners. In law, “deliberate indifference” occurs when a professional knows of and disregards an excessive risk to an inmate’s health or safety.

“There have been some inmates I met in my journey who have come up and gave me a hug,” said Farmer in the phone interview that organizers played at the beginning of Friday’s conference. However, she said, “the struggle for transgenderism is still very much alive and very much in need.”

For starters, transgender individuals, especially non-white women, find themselves wrapped up in the criminal justice system at disproportionate rates. In the 2011 National Transgender Discrimination Survey, 47% of black transgender respondents said they had been incarcerated “for any reason,” compared to 8.9% of the general black population.

That result is due in large part to factors that put LGBT individuals at risk of being arrested before they even reach adulthood. Data shows LGBT youth are overrepresented in the nation’s homeless population, having left home in many cases because their families didn’t accept them. Once on the street, they’re exposed to myriad dangers, including violence, sex work, and incarceration.

CeCe McDonald

Such was the experience of transgender folk hero CeCe McDonald, who, after surviving homelessness, prostitution, and one near fatal transphobic attack, served 28 months behind bars for second-degree manslaughter, a charge to which she pleaded guilty. At 23 years-old in 2011, McDonald stabbed and killed a man after he and his friends verbally and physically assaulted her.

“I ended up defending myself,” McDonald recalled on Friday, her normally ebullient voice raspy with a cold. “Of course the system did not allow me to flourish in a way where I could successfully go through the trial and actually win.”

Faced with up to 40 years for second-degree murder, McDonald pleaded guilty to a lesser charge that carried a 41-month sentence in a state men’s prison. Though the only LGBT person in her prison pod, McDonald said she was far more concerned about what the prison staff would do to her. “The reality is that staff and people who work there are more than likely to attack you,” said McDonald. “Knowing that put me on a different level of paranoia when I was in prison.”

In an attempt to hold prison officials accountable to their duties under Farmer, Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) in 2003. From that law grew a set of standards designed to eliminate sexual abuse in prison. But critics denounce the PREA regulations as far too soft on prison officials who assault inmates. “PREA is a joke,” exclaimed Evie Litwok, president of Ex-Offender Nation, during Friday’s conference. “These men could never get laid in the free world to the extent that they’re getting laid in prison,” she said of male staffers working in female jails.

Prisoners’ rights advocates have called for greater transparency within jail facilities – in particular, more cameras. They’ve also implored members of the mainstream LGBT equality movement to strengthen their connection with inmates, through advocacy or, more simply, through writing letters. They stress, however, that the only way to truly reduce the rate of prisoner abuse is to reduce the rate of mass incarceration.

“It’s hard to figure out how to work with people who have caused an enormous amount of harm, but we’re already living with them,” said the Rev. Jason Lydon, founding director of the group Black and Pink. “The rate of homicides being solved are low … Domestic violence goes on and on without police being involved. We’re already living with people causing enormous amount of harm, and prisons aren’t fixing that.”

Short of rape, there are a number of other ways in which inmates face abuse. Litwok, 63, has served a total of 20 months in federal prison for tax evasion. When she first arrived in 2009, she immediately came out as a lesbian – a move she believes subjected her to “harassment, torture, and sadism.”

Inmate.com got the word around immediately,” said Litwok to msnbc during a lunch break. “It’s like old-school telephone. That’s how we get our news.”

Within two weeks of her prison stay, the manager of Litwok’s quiet orientation unit accused her of groping other women.

“I got angry immediately because I hadn’t been involved with anybody for over ten years because of my case,” said Litwok. “I told her I wanted to see the women who accused me of that now.”

No such women were presented. Instead, Litwok was transferred to a different unit known as “The Ghetto,” the loudest most unpleasant area.

“In front of ‘The Ghetto,’ there are 20 beds for punishment called ‘The Bus Stop,” said Litwok. “You sleep under 24-hour, seven-day-a-week florescent lights that don’t go off, and you sleep next to an ice machine that crushes ice every 20 minutes. On either side of you are the bathrooms, which 150 women use … It may not be waterboarding, but it’s torture.”

Litwok stayed there for the rest of her sentence.

Dear Emma,

I understand your advocacy for the LGBT movement and equality for that community, but your article on LGBT inmates is largely incorrect. Do you not research as a reporter to uncover the truth instead of simply believing someone who told you something?

It all sounds very much like the criminal justice system, where hearsay can incarcerate an individual with no evidence and no substantial proof of any kind for years and a decade more for conspiracy of which the person doesn’t even know they’re committing conspiracy. The true conspiracy is the lies that the government’s witnesses have told, and in this case, perhaps your faulty sources. It’s sad that people are so blinded with ridiculous notions that it’s them against the world and that anyone who isn’t like them is against them, therein the cause of corruption and evil in this world that many will suffer for the selfishness of others.

Why not then do an actual article on how many people are incarcerated innocently? There are far greater numbers of people incarcerated that should never have been there in the first place, the majority of which are still behind bars today. And no one speaks for them because in today’s society of Hollywood and self-made reality tv stars, it’s more important to discuss whether someone’s butt is too big or whether spikes should be erected under bridges and highways to deter the homeless.

That last one aggravates me because, where does someone who has a place to sleep at night with a warm bed, a comfy blanket, and a nice home ever think of where a homeless person would go if not under bridges and along park benches when the shelters are too full. It would’ve been a better use of government resources to erect more shelters to help the homeless instead of harm them by erecting spikes so that they have nowhere to lay their head. And much like the homeless, falsely incarcerated people exist and will not simply go away if we turn the other eye and pretend not to notice.

There are innocent people in prison fighting to get out and not even the media or any reporters who still seek actual truth will listen, not even with the overwhelming evidence of corrupted federal judges, prosecutors, and civil court wins would help set someone free. Yet, everyone wants to hop on the gravy train of fighting for false freedoms in a bound and slave system worse than any third world country in the world, and no one wants to touch base on the corruption of the people who are here to serve and protect us, the very same ones who throw us behind lock and key to fatten their paychecks and please their own conceited egos of how many they can throw into America’s slave labor system.

If I was in the position to be a reporter, I’d at least fight for something worth fighting for: ivory poaching which kills and drives rhinos and elephants towards extinction, rhinos particularly; deforestation which is humanity destroying itself slowly; and people who can’t speak for themselves because the world is so corrupt that unless we’re just like them, there’s no chance for us who don’t belong to live in it.

But this is the modern age, isn’t it? And the age of technology and computers. Everyone has a Facebook and a Twitter and YouTube and followers. Perhaps one day, no thanks to all the ones who try so hard in hiding up the truth and their own wickedness, will there be a real freedom for everyone, and not simply because everyone wants to throw in their own perspective lifestyle or decisions, but a real freedom with a transparent government who is for the people instead of for themselves while riding on the backs of the people.

Have a good night.

Sincerely,
Xao Thao
