Vermont Bill Seeks to Legalize Adult Prostitution

Some Vermonters want to make adult prostitution legal and four left-wing female legislators want to help them.

Some Vermonters want to make adult prostitution legal and four left-wing female legislators want to help them.

One of the co-sponsors of the bill, progressive Rep. Selene Colburn, says decriminalizing prostitution will improve safety and the health of those involved.

“The underlying question is do we need to criminalize consensual sex between adults on any terms?” Colburn said, adding that sexual exploitation of minors will remain illegal.

“The bill (H. 569), only four pages long, would simply repeal current sex work statutes prohibiting the act. Human trafficking and the sale of sex that is coerced in any form would still be illegal under the legislation, but it would decriminalize the sale of sex between two consenting adults,” VTDigger wrote.

The bill is co-sponsored by Rep. Diana Gonzalez, P-Winooski, Rep. Maxine Grad, D-Moretown, and Rep. Emilie Kornheiser, D-Brattleboro.

Colburn added that the bill was introduced with another bill that gives immunity from prosecution for anyone who witnesses any acts of prostitution or the human trafficking of underage people. This bill also creates a Sex Work Study Committee to modernize the Vermont’s sex work laws.

If passed, the Green Mountain State would become the first state to legalize adult prostitution.

That lack of support from other state legislatures has caused some doubt, even in Colburn.

“There is a lot of good research and compelling advocates on this issue,” Colburn told the media, “And hopefully my colleagues will hear them and take it seriously.”

Still, several other states, including New York, have begun looking at the idea of decriminalizing sex work.

Another Democrat Arrested for Physically Attacking Trump Supporters

Making it the second time this week, another violent, hate-filled Democrat has been arrested for attacking a Trump supporter.

Published

on

Making for the second time this week, another violent, hate-filled Democrat has been arrested for physically attacking a Trump supporter.

An unhinged Democrat lost his tiny liberal mind over a teenager wearing a Donald Trump MAGA hat at a New Hampshire polling place this week, police said.

Now, the teen who was attacked without reason is “traumatized,” according to his name.

“The Windham Police Department said Patrick Bradley, 34, of Windham, was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct,” Fox News reported.

Apparently, the criminal Bradley “got in the faces” of a group of teens with MAGA hats near a Windham High School polling location on Tuesday, the police reported.

Bradley reportedly attacked the teens after he exited the school. The violent liberal apparently became incensed when he spied a Donald Trump campaign tent the teens were staffing.

The victim’s mother described the attack:

“My son stayed home from school on Tuesday for a doctor’s appointment and we drove by the high school to go vote. When we got there, we saw Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, and my son was over the moon,” she said. “My son is the most patriotic kid you’d ever meet in your life.”

The mother noted that her son was invited to help out at the tent.

“I was apprehensive about him wearing the MAGA hat, because we know it can provoke and we know people don’t like Trump,” the woman explained. “But he wore the hat because he’s a proud 15-year-old and he doesn’t know what people are going to be like.”

“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk and he said, ‘have a nice night,’ he said it to everyone. But this man was triggered,” she added. “He said ‘f— you’ to him and wound up his hand as fast as he could and slapped him across the face.”

“It sickens me that people would be angry at a kid for wearing a stupid hat,” she said. “And everybody that has reached out has just talked about what an amazing kid he is.”

The president’s son made note of the attack:

This is the second time an unhinged Democrat physically attacked a Trump supporter this week. A similar incident occured in Tennessee.

Another Liberal Attacks Man for Red Donald Trump MAGA Hat

Another hate-filled liberal has lashed out at someone for wearing a MAGA hat, this time in Nashville, Tennessee.

Published

Another hate-filled liberal has lashed out at someone for wearing a MAGA hat, this time in Nashville, Tennessee.

Proving once again that it is liberals that are the danger to American society at large, a distempered, left-wing, harlot attacked a man whom she did not know at a Nashville restaurant after seeing his red hat.

The victim, Daniel Sprague, was at The Stage bar on Broadway with his wife. The couple were celebrating the man’s 50th birthday with the red hat.

The hat, though, is not exactly a Donald Trump hat. In fact, it was only made up to look like a Trump hat. It is red like Trump’s ubiquitous campaign hat. But instead of saying “Make America Great Again,” the hat sported the birthday slogan, “Make Fifty Great Again.”

The victim said most people thought his hat was amusing.

“People were just coming up to me and, you know, just loving the little word play on the hat and taking pictures and wishing me happy birthday,” Sprague told News4.

One woman, though, did not think the hat was so wonderful.

The liberal woman was so filled with hate that she wasn’t even smart enough to read the hat.

“At one point,” Sprague told the media, “A female came up from behind me, spun me around, and punched me in the face and then grabbed my hat off my head and was just yelling, ‘How dare you.'”

Sprague noted that the punch was hard enough and unexpected enough to give him a cut on his face.

The ex-New York police officer was shocked by the unbidden attack by someone he did not even know, especially since it was about politics and not for anything he even did to anyone.

“People have different views, but we’re not supposed to take it out on each other,” Sprague said.

BREAKING: Former ‘Empire’ Actor Jussie Smollett Indicted By Special Prosecutor

Published

on

Jussie Smollett was just indicted by a special prosecutor in Chicago ‘for lying to police about being the victim of a racist homophobic attack’, a year after similar charges were dropped.

A grand jury hit Jussie Smollett with six disorderly conduct charges for allegedly staging racist and homophobic hate crime. Special prosecutor Dan Webb announced the charges against Smollett today and said his further prosecution is in the ‘interest of justice.’

Fox News:

Jussie Smollett has been indicted by a grand jury on six counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about his claims of a racist and homophobic attack against him in January 2019, a special prosecutor announced on Tuesday.

Special prosecutor Dan Webb issued a statement announcing the indictment against the 37-year-old former “Empire” star. He is due in court on Feb. 24, Fox 32 reported citing a source.

Smollett, who is black and gay, originally was charged last year with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging the attack and lying about it to investigators. The charges were dropped in March 2019 with little explanation, angering police officials and then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Cook County Judge Michael Toomin in August appointed Webb, a former U.S. attorney, as a special prosecutor to look into why the charges were dropped. Webb was also charged with looking into whether Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s calls with a Smollett relative and an ex-aide of former first lady Michelle Obama unduly influenced the decision to drop charges. Foxx recused herself from the case but continued to weigh in.  More

Kim Foxx needs to be disbarred. Michelle Obama won’t be interfering this time around.

Good, anyone else in America would have been locked up a long time ago. Common sense finely prevailed. Now do something about the people who allowed him to go free in the first place instead of doing their job properly

Suspect Arrested, Charged After Reportedly Driving Van Into Republican Tent Full Of Trump Supporters

A van driven by Gregory William Loel Timm rammed into a Republican Party tent full of Trump supporters set up with volunteers registering voters. After he rammed the tent, he flipped off shocked bystanders and even took a video of the aftermath before driving away.

Jacksonville, Florida PD has now arrested the 27-year-old man and charged him with two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.

First Coast News:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — A man was arrested Saturday after investigators with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said he drove a van into a tent belonging to the Republican Party of Duval County.

Gregory William Loel Timm, 27, faces multiple charges, including two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years of age or older, one count of criminal mischief and driving with a suspended license.

On Saturday afternoon, police responded to the Walmart at 11900 Atlantic Blvd. in Kernan Village after witnesses called 911.

Witnesses told JSO that a man in his 20s driving an older brown Chevy van pulled up to the tent before driving through, running over their tables and chairs. Volunteers for the Republican Party were registering people to vote.

No volunteers were hurt, according to JSO. Witnesses said the driver of the van, stopped the vehicle, get out of the van and took a video while making obscene gestures before he left.

“I thought he was going to slow down, but he didn’t and he gunned his engine and headed straight,” a volunteer with the Republican Party of Duval County who said she was narrowly missed by the car said. More

Why wasn’t he charged with destruction of property, attempted murder, and leaving the scene of a crime to mention just a few?

Trump Dumps Two Anti-Trump, Deep Staters: Gordon Sondland and Alexander Vindman OUT!

Two key figures in the failed Democrat coup against President Donald Trump have been removed from their top positions.

Published

Two key figures in the failed Democrat coup against President Donald Trump have been removed from their top positions in the administration, reports say.

On Friday afternoon, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was removed from his high position in the White House and demoted to another position at the Pentagon where he can no longer spy on the Trump administration for the Democrats.

Vindman was seen being escorted out of the White House by security.

Lt. Col. Vindman was a member of the National Security Council (NSC) but became a clear enemy to the people when he became part of the fake impeachment star chamber the Democrats whipped up against President Trump last year.

Some reports had it that Vindman was cashiered, but he was not. He was just re-assigned. However, the reassignment was a clear slap against him and a good move by the White House.

Vindman was not the only deep state head to roll on Friday.

The administration also recalled U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, another deep stater who tried to help the traitorous Democrats eliminate the president.

“I was advised today that the president intends to recall me effective immediately as United States ambassador to the European Union,” Sondland said, according to Fox News.

“With Sondland and Vindman out, eight of 12 officials who testified publicly during the impeachment hearings have left their roles, been fired, or reassigned,” Fox noted.

Let’s hope it will soon be 12 of 12.

New York City’s Crime Has Skyrocketed Since No Bail Rules Started

Unsurprisingly, crime has skyrocketed in New York after the liberal establishment implemented the Empire State’s new no bail system.

Published

on

Unsurprisingly, crime has skyrocketed in New York after the liberal establishment implemented the Empire State’s new no bail system for criminals going through the criminal justice system.

If the left thought it was bringing compassion to the criminal justice system after implementation of the no bail policy, one has to wonder where the compassion is for the growing number of victims of crime.

Now that the Democrats are letting nearly all crooks off Scot free — regardless of their crime — after going before a judge, criminals understand that they have been given a free pass to commit any crime they want.

Recently, Daniel Horowitz noted how crime has spiked since the new policy went into effect:

According to NYPD crime data, in addition to the 59.6 percent spike in shootings over this time last year, robberies increased 32.8 percent and grand larceny auto crimes were up a whopping 62.8 percent. Burglaries rose by 17 percent. This is just for the first 26 days of 2020.

At least NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea understands WHY the crime rate is rising.

“If you let out individuals that commit a lot of crime, that’s precision policing in reverse and we’re seeing the effects in a very quick time,” Shea said at a press conference last Friday. He decried the undeniable “correlation” between the rise in crime and the jail and prison “populations dropping significantly.”

Shea related an anecdote that perfectly encapsulated the left’s failed ideas about criminal justice “reform.”

Last week, a drunk driver slammed his minivan into a police officer who had pulled over another driver at the side of a road, catching the officer between his car and the officer’s car. “I stopped at the hospital the next day, right before he was wheeled into surgery,” related Shea in front of reporters last Friday. “He got out of the hospital today. Individual that did it was out [of jail] before him. I mean, something’s wrong with that picture. And not his first DWI arrest.”

Democrats think they are coming to the aide of “non violent offenders” who are stuck in the justice system and being mistreated. But Horowitz notes that there really aren’t that many non-violent crooks in jail.

Democrats are letting dangerous criminals escape punishment AND giving them incentives to be MORE violent and dangerous!

Child Rapist Released from Prison Because He Turned Into a Transgender ‘Woman’

Officials in Iowa have released a child rapist claiming he is no longer a danger merely because he now claims to be a transgender “woman.”

Published

Officials in Iowa have released a child rapist claiming he is no longer a danger merely because he now claims to be a transgender “woman.”

The Iowa attorney general’s office agreed to release Joseph Matthew Smith, 23, who was convicted of sexually molesting 15 children, all because he claims to be a woman, now.

https://twitter.com/TPostMillennial/status/1222617517908119553

Smith was confined in the Cherokee Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders, but now he is set to be released to begin serving his 903B supervision after completing sex offender registration, according to AG office spokesperson Lynn Hicks.

As Daily Caller reported:

After reviewing additional updated information regarding the Respondent, the State’s expert has indicated that his opinion is that the Respondent does not meet criteria as a sexually violent predator,” the motion says. “In light of the evaluation results of the State’s expert, the State does not have sufficient evidence to proceed in this case.

Hicks told the Iowa newspaper that “an offender’s hormone levels are an important part of substantiating an offender’s likelihood of recidivism.” Hicks also said in January that there is not sufficient evidence to prove Smith will reoffend, the Times reported.

Hicks added that according to the state, the molester “does not meet the criteria as a sexually violent predator” now that he claims to be a woman.

“That Smith is under the age of 25 and had never been in a long-term relationship also contributed to the likelihood he would commit another offense, the report found, adding that the Smith was repeatedly sexually molested starting at age 7 in Louisiana,” Daily Caller added.

But red flags are all over the place on this case. The molester’s victims were both male and female and all were under the age of 13. The state did not say exactly why it imagines Smith is suddenly cured of wanting to molest kids just because he claims to have switched gender.

“Mr. Smith has not had an intimate relationship,” the report said. “His sexual encounters appear to have primarily involved molestation, including his own molestation by multiple perpetrators, or his victimization of others.”

It also seems that Iowa was vexed by the idea that a “woman” would suddenly be incarcerated at the Cherokee Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders. Currently it is all men, but if Smith now claims to be a woman, then that would change the facility’s dynamic.

Then again, one would think that the prison system could just ignore this claim of a gender switch.
