So has this been a pressing problem in the military?

Why not? The purchase and downloading of child porn was rampant at the Pentagon. Look up Operation Flicker.


Chris Smith…figures. He’s making a career out of victim named bills.

If they did away with victim named laws and/or the registry, Chris Smith wouldn’t have a political career!

And all these laws he introduces are easily passed because of the negativity, fear and hatred towards “child” sexual offenders giving Mr. Smith a false sense of pride no doubt, but in reality, he’s not accomplishing anything.

He’s just exploiting a fabricated fear and manufactured outrage narrative based on public opinion that HE – along with John Walsh – helped foster.

The public is intentionally being misinformed and misled with a false premise.

Oh, Chris Smith is positively PUFFED-UP with pride. He’s GIDDY with delight that this horrendous bill of his got passed. If you haven’t already, you really should watch him in action on the House Floor on the Congressional television coverage of IML. He’s an easy read but smooth. Mike, my guess is that he is a closet-case but doesn’t do anything about it. That just makes him that much more mean and resentful. We will be made to pay!

Yeah he is probably a rampant closet sex offender who has not been caught yet. Usually the person crying wolf is the wolf themselves….

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
