When this first exploded on the web, mainstream came out and started calming fake news sites, where Facebook and Google would do a sweep to get a handle on things because of the witch hunt this was causing. Then yesterday a guy walks into Comet Pizza with a rifle and wants some answers, well all hell is breaking loose and we do know of human trafficking that has been going on since the days of Christopher Columbus and Black Slaves coming out of Africa to this day. So fake news this is being called because it involves many ivory towers, “well we shall see” said the Zen Master.
From the Hampton Institute:
This phenomenon is actually termed Child Sex Tourism (CST) but in today’s terminology we refer to this as Pedogate, coined from Pizzagate. Millions of children each year are exploited by Child Sex Tourism, and many of the pedophiles engaged in this activity are considered “Situational abusers.” These are the tourists who do not intentionally travel to seek sex with a child, but readily take advantage of children sexually once they are in a country; however, there are also “Preferential child sex abusers” who are pedophiles traveling with the explicit purpose of exploiting children. These are the pedophiles that flock to places like Thailand, the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic, Africa, Kenya, South America, Brazil; all nations that have high rates of sex trafficking. $32 billion – Total yearly profits, in U.S. dollars, generated by the human trafficking industry.

Here’s a radio show that airs daily during the week who are licensed investigators, Hagmann and Hagmann who now claim have an entire wall devoted to this investigation instead of your normal white board.

The Latest on human trafficking investigation in the U.S. — Commercial sex work in a ring that operated in California, Nevada and Texas.
Yet more importantly the U.S. is not dinking around with this outrage.
Children are among the most vulnerable and innocent among us and deserve the highest protection of the law. In past years, remarkable progress has been made in preventing, investigating, and prosecuting crimes against children. But more can and must be done to address crime, especially as predators exploit technological advances in order to hurt kids.
