Loretta Lynch’s false claim on sex trafficking arrests

This is a story about how the language regarding the crime of sex trafficking has become so fuzzy that even the nation’s top law enforcement officer can speak before an international audience and utter wildly inflated statistics.

Throughout 2015, The Fact Checker has dug into dubious statistics concerning sex trafficking, so this recent speech by Attorney General Lynch caught our eye. Lynch has taken a keen interest in sex trafficking, recently announcing more than $44 million in grant funding to combat human trafficking in the United States, including supporting law-enforcement task forces and victims services organizations. She devoted a significant part of her speech to Interpol to discussing sex trafficking.

But laudable efforts to help victimized children can be undermined when advocates resort to hyperbole to tout their success. Let’s explore how that happened here. Full Article

Exaggerations have been the mainstay in the sex offender/sex trafficking hysteria arenas. The saddest part is that LE, whom should dwell in the house of truth are themselves the biggest perpetrator of lies. God! Save America.

This is why there is virtually no difference between Socialists and Republicans when it comes to sex offender issues. It provides them with a rare “oppurtunity for bi-partisan agreement.” Sickening.

There are no actual socialists in the United States Congress. Democrats, Republicans, and a few Independents, but no Socialists. Which would be problematic anyway because just like any other social or political perspective there exists varying degrees of agreement with ideals. By default identifying as anything doesn’t mean 100% agreement with everything aspect of positions backed by the label. You want to know what an actual socialist believes?

It is not the same Democratic Party that had been fairly centrist until… Read more »
