2 Texas principals arrested for failing to report sexual abuse allegations

Two elementary school principals at a Texas school district were arrested within a week of each other for failing to report cases of sexual abuse to law enforcement.

Cindy Sue Underwood, 35, the principal of Kate Haynes Northwest Academy was booked into the Wichita County jail on Monday and released soon after.

Kory Fancher Dorman, 45, the principal of Crocket Elementary school was arrested last week.

Both educators were charged with failing to report separate and unrelated incidents of sexual abuse concerning students in their care.

Underwood was arrested for failing to tell police a school iPad was used by three 6-year-old boys to take photos as they engaged in various sexual acts in a classroom.

According to the arrest warrant, the photos were taken on Oct. 3 and were reportedly found on Oct. 25 by the students’ homeroom teacher.

The teacher informed Underwood of the findings. She told the parents, but did not alert law enforcement.

The children were sent home, which detectives said put others at risk.

Dorman was arrested Jan. 31 for allegedly not reporting a sexual assault of a first grader at her school.

According to the arrest warrant, Dorman was notified by three grandparents in mid-December that their 7-year-old grandson was sexually assaulted by a fellow 6-year-old student while in a bathroom at Crockett elementary school.  It’s unclear when the assault occurred.

Dorman told authorities that she delegated the responsibility of investigating the allegations to the school counselor. She did not report the allegations to law enforcement and was unaware that anyone had reported the incident after they returned from the holidays about 20 days later.

Both Underwood and Dorman were put on administrative leave by Wichita Falls ISD district officials on Friday.

The Texas Family Code states that teachers are mandatory reporters.

Uranium One informant says Moscow paid millions in bid to influence Clinton

An FBI informant involved in the controversial Uranium One deal has told congressional committees that Moscow paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration.

The Hill first reported late Wednesday that informant Douglas Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors by committee staff.

In the statement, obtained by Fox News, Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

 

Uranium One is a Canadian mining company whose sale to a Russian firm was approved in 2010. The U.S. government was involved because the sale gave the Russians control of part of the U.S. uranium supply. The transaction has faced renewed scrutiny after The Hill reported last year that the FBI had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian operatives used bribes, kickbacks and other dirty tactics to expand Moscow’s atomic energy footprint in the U.S., related to a subsidiary of the same Russian firm.

Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill want to know how the deal was approved the following year by an inter-agency committee.

Democrat Lawmakers Push Bill to Make Tide Pod Look ‘Less Appetizing’

What has our country come to?

New York City Democrats State Sen. Brad Holyman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas introduced legislation Tuesday in Albany that would prohibit manufacturers from making detergent pods that look like candy or other edible items according to the Associated Press.

The bills, proposed in the New York State Assembly and Senate, would require detergent packets to be one color, have packaging that is not see-through, and carry warnings about the risk of poisoning if pods are ingested.

“Bright colored detergent pods look like candy, they look like toys,” said Simotas, who introduced the bill in the Assembly.

Simotas and Holyman say that the bright-colored packaging, appealing smell, and squishy texture of the pods can tempt children or adults with dementia into thinking the packets are edible. The lawmakers argue that state regulation prohibiting manufacturers from packaging the pods a certain way could reduce the risk of poisonings.

“They might as well say bite me on them, because that is what they offer,” Holyman, the bill’s sponsor in the Senate, said.

Some state legislators are not on board with the proposal, arguing that the state should be working on more pressing matters.

“The key is you just shouldn’t eat it,” said Assemblyman Karl Brabenec, a Republican. “I mean any laundry detergent, whether it’s brown, red, green, whatever the case might be. It’s just ridiculous.”

The “Tide Pods Challenge” became an Internet viral sensation, mostly among teenagers, after several people began posting videos of themselves ingesting small, colorful laundry detergent pods. The trend has resulted in multiple hospitalizations for poisoning.

Companies have started initiatives that would lessen the number of poisonings resulting from the dangerous viral trend.

Proctor and Gamble, Tide’s parent company, launched an effort to warn people of the dangers of ingesting Tide Pods.

YouTube announced that it would delete any Tide Pod videos posted on its site that encourage teenagers to ingest poisonous detergent.

VIDEO: Man Masturbating In My Little Pony Aisle Caught On Wall-Mart Surveillance Camera

In what might be the most disgusting public disturbance of 2018 thus far, a man was caught on camera in a Wall-Mart doing the dirty in the My Little Pony section of a Dallas, Georgia Wall-Mart.

Jaydin Cardiff, of Marietta, Georgia, thought he’d go to a store in a distant town, free from the social shackles of his hometown, Dallas, where he’s lived for over 48 years. What he wasn’t expecting was to get caught.

“I done showed up around 3, 4 am on a Tuesday night. Ain’t no managers to be seen,” Cardiff told Newsweek reporters last week. “But then, out of nowhere, these two men, tall–and I’m six foot three, I’m a big boy–tackle me to the ground.”

But now, Jaydin is pressing charges. “I felt like I was being unfairly assaulted,” Jaydin said. “I durn tell ’em[sic], ‘Hey! I’m obedient, I was an officer in the army, please respect me as I done respect you and this here country! But they didn’t. And I haven’t gotten one since.”

Cardiff appears to lack a basic understanding of public indecency laws, but if the security men did in fact continue to attack him post-surrender, they might be sharing a cell with him one day.

This story will be updated as it develops.

What the Dems Won’t Tell You About the Stock Market Decline

After the nearly two-year record breaking stock upswing prompted by Trump’s Presidency and Policies, the market appears to be in a state of decline.

As usual, the Democrats had a field day.

But they might want to hold off on popping those six-figure champagne bottles a little bit longer.

Still don’t believe me? Take Jacques Baudelaire, noted economics policy professor at Yale University:

What Democrats fail to recognize is what’s known as the Push-Pull Theory. That is, with Democratic initiatives like raising wages and expanding entitlements programs comes at the cost of the businesses–the “Jobsmakers,” as I coined in my book, The Great Sham: How the Clintons Destroyed the Business Sector. With increased overhead and decreased confidence, the stocks plummet and the jobs disappear. To put it in euphemism: Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, and their crooked clan are working behind the scenes to dismantle all of the good work Trump has done for the economy… which is a shame, really.

Trump’s Presidency has been full of successes. Whether it’s bringing more jobs to coal miners, draining the swamp, and even directly causing black unemployment to reach an all-time historic low. But with Democrats threatening to undermine all of that–with success–through various underhanded tactics, our vastly divided country still has a long way to go.

But, perhaps this is just what the Dems–the Clintons, Pelosi, and even Bernie Sanders wanted all along. Less jobs, more money (for them), and virtue signalling the bottom line. Ignorance is bliss, after all.

High school cancels musical after white student lands lead role

Social equity activists at a New York secondary school effectively close down a generation of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” after a white understudy handled a lead part.

Dissents of the creation started when an African-American understudy quit Ithaca High School’s melodic generation because of the part of Esmeralda being given to a white schoolmate.

“It demonstrates to you that venue wasn’t made for you,” the understudy told the Ithaca Journal. “What’s more, it demonstrates to you that, in the event that you can’t get the parts that are composed for you, what parts would you say you will get?”

Understudy activists at that point joined together under the umbrella of Students United Ithaca and composed a letter that incorporated a rundown of requests, saying that, while the young woman give a role as Esmeralda was “a stellar on-screen character, vocalist, and artist” any generation would be “fortunate to have,” she couldn’t be thrown in this part since she is the “encapsulation of whiteness.”

“Best case scenario, this is social allotment,” the understudy aggregate composed, affirming racial predisposition inside the Performing Arts Program at IHS, and “at the very least, it is whitewashing, a bigot throwing practice which has its foundations in minstrelsy.”

While the understudy activists requested “dark colored and dark female understudies” be considered for the part, the character being referred to is half Roma, half French, as per the novel by Victor Hugo. SUI focused on “the book and the melodic ought not be conflated” in light of the fact that the melodic is just “enlivened” by Hugo’s composition.

The gathering calls attention to that the Musical Theater International generation control records her part as a “Romani lady” who is “a pariah racially and socially.”

The Ithaca City School District declared it drop the melodic trying to be “more comprehensive and socially responsive” in their “endeavors to dispose of institutional inclinations.”

The secondary school is anticipating putting on “another cooperative venture” rather, including that “this isn’t about a specific employee or ICSD representative.”

Reverse racism anyone?

Chelsea Clinton Calls Barron Trump “A Creepy Psycho”

Chelsea Clinton is in some hot water today.

This weekend, Clinton took to social media to speak foully about our Commander-in-Chief’s youngest son, Barron Trump.

Clinton, the former first child, went against everything that is moral and classy by decrying Barron’s choice of outfit to a recent press gathering.

Barron was wearing a child’s t-shirt that features prominently the characters from a popular video game called “Minecraft”.

Well Clinton, an ardent defender of leftist environmentalism, had something to say about it.

“Barron isn’t normal,” Clinton said. “I mean look at him. You are supposed to wear a suit and tie to these events. You are representing the American people. I think he looks, and acts, like a creepy psycho.”

Nevermind that Clinton could be seen wearing similar clothes when she was Barron’s age. Maybe it’s her cultural elitism and liberal virtue signalling that is keeping her from seeing the truth: she and her family are out of touch with the average American.

God Bless Barron Trump.

Illegal alien nanny accused of stabbing kids to death faces life sentence as trial begins

A Dominican nanny charged five years ago with stabbing to death two children in her care is set to finally face a jury, with the possibility of life behind bars waiting.

Yoselyn Ortega, 55, will be tried for allegedly killing Lucia Krim, 6, and Leo Krim, 2, in their family’s Upper West Side apartment, before slashing her own throat.

After years of pre-trial litigation focused on Ortega’s mental state, jury selection is set to kick off Monday for the supreme court trial before Judge Gregory Carro in Manhattan.

Last year, Ortega refused a plea deal offered by Carro that would have given her 30 years to life behind bars in exchange for pleading guilty to two counts of murder.

Over a span of several months, jurors will hear expert testimony on Ortega’s mental health, as well as witness accounts from the aftermath of the horrific 2012 stabbing — including from the children’s mother, Marina.

A judge determined Ortega was fit to stand trial, but her lawyers are likely going to enter a psychological defense.

The prosecution is expected to present Ortega as the Krim family’s trusted nanny who knew what she was doing when she repeatedly stabbed Lucia and Leo on Oct. 25, 2012 while the children’s mom was out of the home with a third child.

Ortega told investigators Lucia fought back when she was attacked inside the apartment, police sources told the Daily News. Ortega reportedly said the 2-year-old boy was sleeping when the assault began.

Photographs of the two children allegedly stabbed by their nanny are displayed alongside balloons and stuffed animals at a memorial outside the apartment building were they lived, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012, in New York. The 2-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter of a CNBC executive were found dead by their mother in a dry bathtub in the family's Upper West Side apartment Thursday night.

When their mother, Marina, returned from a swimming lesson with her 3-year-old daughter, she found the apartment dark and walked down to the lobby to ask the doorman if he had seen Ortega and the children. When told the trio had not left the building, Krim went back up to the apartment and searched each room.

When she entered the bathroom, she found her children, fully clothed, lying a in a bloody bathtub, with multiple stab wounds. Ortega, who was laying on the floor with slashed wrists, cut her own throat as Krim walked into the room. The mother began screaming, which prompted neighbors to call 911.

“She was bent over the child, screaming and holding onto the only live child she still had,” the family’s neighbor told the New York Post at the time. “They were very deep, dark screams.”

Ortega reportedly told authorities she had financial problems and was trying to earn more money. She appeared enraged over being asked by the Krims to do housework for extra crash, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.

“She said something like, ‘I’m paid to watch the children, not clean up and do housework,'” a source told the Post.

The couple’s apartment building sits in one of the city’s most idyllic neighborhoods, a block from Central Park, near the Museum of Natural History and blocks from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The neighborhood is home to many affluent families, and seeing children accompanied by nannies is an everyday part of life there.

Ortega is being held without bail.

Twice-deported, drunk driving illegal immigrant accused in death of NFL player

The suspected drunk driver who killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson in a crash on the morning of the Super Bowl is a Guatemalan citizen who is in the U.S. illegally and has been deported twice, police revealed Monday.

Indiana State Police identified the driver of an F-150 truck in the incident as Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, who had been deported in 2007 and 2009.

“State police investigators are working with U.S. Federal Immigration Officials and they have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala,” police said.

Jackson, 26, and Jeffrey Monroe, 54, also in his vehicle, were hit and killed around 4 a.m. on Sunday on Interstate 70 in Indiana.

Investigators believe Monroe was Jackson’s Uber driver and Jackson was the passenger, FOX59 reported. The station said at some point during the ride Jackson became sick, and the pair were hit on the emergency shoulder of the highway after Monroe pulled over.

A state trooper who responded to the crash also struck the body of one of the victims in the center lane when he slowed his cruiser down to investigate.

Orrego-Savala fled the scene but was arrested shortly thereafter by the responding officer. He then gave police the alias of Alex Cabrera Gonsales. Jail records viewed by Fox News on Monday morning said Orrego-Savala, under the alias of Gonsales, was driving without a license and is believed to have a blood alcohol level of .15 at the time of the crash.

“The loss of life at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals should make all Hoosiers sad and ultimately angry,” Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., said in a statement. “We must do more to get these dangerous illegal immigrant criminals off of our streets, and guarantee this never happens again by building a wall, ending sanctuary cities, and stopping illegal immigration once and for all.”

It was not immediately clear when Orrego-Savala re-entered the U.S. after being deported in 2009. But Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine told Fox News that Orrego-Savala has used the Gonsales alias enough times “to create a paper trail.”

Orrego-Savala is currently being held at the Marion County Jail and police say they are working to file criminal charges.

OCD Sensitivity Test: Are You OCD?

How OCD are you?

If you find 2 bothersome, then you are 50% OCD. If you think 3 is making you lose your mind, then you are full blown 100% OCD.

OCD has been on the rise in the US since the beginning of the 21st century. Simply put, more people are either being diagnosed with OCD or are finally getting the treatment they need.

But OCD can also afflict people on varying levels. For some people, that can be quantified by the Higgs-Borshinger Test that helps quantify how OCD an individual is.

If you find 2 annoying, but 3 okay, then you should be on the lookout for overextending your OCD ways.

If 3 drives you nuts then you may want to go see a professional to give you help. The bigger the difference between circles the more a person is annoying equals more OCD.
