....if this story is true, I would expect the MSM to bury it. Very strange to have two elected state officials found murdered so close together, geographically and timeline....
Apologies in advance if this winds up being false...

Breaking: Murdered Arkansas Former GOP State Senator Believed She Was Closing In On Child Trafficking Ring In Arkansas State Government
by CD Media StaffJune 7, 2019

Murdered former Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith

BREAKING: CD Media’s Debbie Aldrich Will Live Stream Interview With Source Tonight Alleging Arkansas Government Corruption In Murder Of Former GOP State Senator
Former Republican Arkansas state Senator Linda Collins-Smith, who was found murdered in her home this week in Pocahontas, Arkansas, believed she was closing in on a child-trafficking ring working from within the Arkansas state government.
A verified source close to Collins-Smith told CD Media that she was about to go public with incriminating information on sitting judges in Arkansas, who were involved in taking children from poor women via the Department of Human Services (child protective services) in Arkansas and selling them to wealthy individuals. The source also disclosed that Collins-Smith believed the perpetrators were using illegal aliens to facilitate the crimes which included murdering the mothers of the stolen children.
In another ominous twist to the story, former Oklahoma state Sen. Jonathan Nichols was found murdered in his home in Norman, Oklahoma yesterday. Our source believes the two murders are connected.
CD Media has much more information to release but we are in the process of verifying the information first. Please check back for further developments.

Breaking: Murdered GOP AR State Senator Told Sources She Found Child Pornography From Foster Kids On Judge Ex-Husband’s Computer Days Before She Died
by CDMediaNetworkJuly 28, 2019


Multiple confirmed sources have informed CD Media that murdered Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith told them she found child pornography made with foster children in care of the Arkansas Department of Human Services on her ex-husband’s, former Judge Phillip Smith, government-provided laptop computer. She was concerned the videos had been made in his judicial chambers where allegedly all cameras had been removed.

Judge Smith was removed from the bench in February of this year for using government resources for ‘extrajudicial’ purposes but those records have been sealed.


Sources confirmed to CD Media that the FBI has taken over the case due to its child-trafficking ramifications.

....for those outside the US, John McCain is/was a known 'high-profile' person and US Republican Senator for many years (1987-2018)... Jeff Flake?... not so much... he served a single six-year term and did not seek reelection due to poor approval ratings..
...as this writer points out, it's curious why a 'lowly' Maricopa County, AZ Assessor would be rubbing shoulders with two US Senators.... and why would a US Senator (Flake) be traveling to the Marshall Islands...(?)....

Arizona Adoption Attorney Arrested for Human Trafficking Had Strong Connections to Jeff Flake and John McCain
October 11, 2019 Dean Garrison



Recently we reported on the arrest of Paul Peterson, an attorney and former elected public servant, who is now facing DOJ charges relating to adoption fraud and the smuggling of illegal aliens.

Peterson was allegedly bringing pregnant women, from The Marshall Islands, to America and putting their children up for adoption, for hefty profits.

It is now being reported that, in some cases, the women did not want to give up their children.

Here is a quick rundown from yesterday's article at our sister site

The Trump Administration’s crackdown on human smuggling and trafficking continues.

Many unborn children may have just been saved from a horrid existence by The DOJ.

THV11 Reports:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An Arizona adoption attorney is facing several federal charges in Arkansas after being arrested in California Tuesday evening.

Paul Petersen, who is an assessor in Maricopa County and an attorney that practices law in Arizona, Utah and Arkansas, reportedly “devised a scheme to defraud and obtain money and property from unknowing adoptive parents and others.”

According to the Department of Justice, Petersen would pay pregnant Marsallese women to travel to Arkansas and put their babies up for adoption. He allegedly bought airline tickets and had them hide the motive to travel from Republic of Marshall Islands and United States authorities.

“In furtherance of this scheme, Petersen caused adoption case files to be opened that were supported by documents containing fraudulent material false statements,” the DOJ press release stated.

Those documents were then filed in Washington and Polk counties.

Authorities say Petersen reportedly hid his involvement in the payments, transferring “more than one million dollars into a bank account.”

He has been charged with one count of conspiracy to smuggle illegal aliens for commercial advantage and private financial gain, four counts of aiding and abetting, seven counts of wire fraud, five counts of mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit visa fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Read the rest…

Here is a video summary:

Today the plot thickens as questions of possible involvement by Jeff Flake and the late John McCain are surfacing.

More from True Pundit:



Petersen’s reference in 2013 to being invited on a Marshall Island trip WITH Flake is something that promises to peak the interest of state and federal investigators.



“Any investigator worth their salt would want to know what else Jeff Flake was doing on these trips to the Marshall Islands,” said Thomas Paine of True Pundit who worked for many federal agencies investigating fraud and corruption. “I would want to interview Flake just to get a feel for his relationship with Petersen and information on these trips.

“Is this merely a strange coincidence? You rule out coincidences as part of a proper investigation but the emphasis here is in on the word proper.”

Petersen has bragged that his Mesa-based family has roots in Arizona for generations. Flake too hails from Mesa.



Federal law enforcement sources said they do not believe Flake has been interviewed about Petersen. However, additional photos that have surfaced showing Petersen with politicians like Flake and the late John McCain should likewise intrigue ethical investigators.



What was Petersen’s relationship with McCain? Petersen is mentioned in a news piece detailing McCain using his influence to secure $15 million in federal funds linked to a land purchase in Maricopa County to benefit a large political mega donor who piped almost $225,000 into McCain’s coffers.

Are there more questionable land deals to be probed?



The indictment against Petersen, for the most part, said he began bringing pregnant women into the United States from the Marshall Islands in 2014. Petersen and his solo-practitioning law firm charged as much as $40,000 per adoption, placing the newborns with American parents — in many cases — against the will of their foreign birth mothers. At the same time Petersen was rubbing elbows with high profile politicians as an elected official himself and drawing a public salary.

Petersen has contributed to the political campaigns of former U.S. Sen. Dean Heller from Nevada as well as made multiple contributions to Mitt Romney, federal records show. Petersen also campaigned for Romney’s presidential bid. All told, Petersen made five political contributions to Romney, FEC records show for approximately $1,500.

First off, let’s call this what it is.

This is very likely a situation where at least some of these children were NOT given to loving parents, but to those who would traffic them for profit.

Were Jeff Flake and John McCain complicit?

Or were they just a couple of Arizona politicians who happened to cross paths with a lowly assessor from Maricopa County?

How often does your county assessor rub shoulders with U.S. Senators?

Honestly, I’m not even sure who my county assessor is and I’m sure I’m not the only one in America that would say that.

Where there is smoke there is fire.

I’m not a big believer in coincidences.

Let’s not forget that an alleged Epstein victim recently came out to say she was trafficked to the late John McCain.
Jeff Flake sure was in a hurry to move out of the Public eye.

Jussayin…

Sasse is another one Ive grown to greatly mistrust....
No hard evidence but too much smoke for my taste.

“Special Report. The "Grand Old p***phile" party returns to power in DC

Nebraska's new GOP Senator, Ben Sasse, was a proctor and tutor for the House of Representatives pages who helped cover up a sex scandal .... “

WOW! Do you have more info on this Sasse situation?
shady Sasse is an establishment pawn...
“However, there is much more to Ben Sasse than meets the eye, especially in terms of how he is portrayed by the mainstream media. Indeed, both his private as well as his government jobs should raise the eyebrows of any potential supporter.
For instance, in the private sector, Sasse was formerly employed by McKinsey and Company, a global management consulting firm that once employed Chelsea Clinton. The firm serves as an adviser to both governments and private businesses and has produced more CEOs than any other company.

Sasse was also employed with Boston Consulting Group, another global management firm, considered to be in the “Big Three” of such institutions. BCG alone advises 2/3 of the Fortune 500 hundred list. Readers may remember that BCG also once employed Mitt Romney. Indeed, it was during his tenure at BCG that Romney and Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly first met and developed a long lasting connection and friendship.

Sasse later sailed into a position as President of Midland University in Nebraska in 2009, making him one of the youngest Presidents of any American university at the age of 37. It was during his tenure at the university that Sasse was responsible for hiring Jason Dannelly as Athletics Director, a man who went on to face charges for terroristic threats, pandering, and solicitation of prostitution when he threatened an 18 year old college student with physical violence if she refused to have sex with him. Dannelly also faced a separate but similar charge when he was accused of attempting to pay a 20 year old student $300 to have sex with him.

Still, Sasse’s government jobs, however, seem to be a bit more interesting and tainted with controversy. It is thus not surprising that Sasse would tout himself as an “outsider” in government and Republican circle not only because that style of rhetoric tends to be popular amongst the Republican base, but also because any light shed on his inside work may very well create a controversy that sinks his political career.

From 1996 to 1998, Sasse worked as a tutor and one of four proctors with the U.S. House of Representatives Page Program where his job entailed the responsibility for the safety and welfare of the pages who were enrolled. However, it was during this period that much of the sexual molestation of Congressional pages took place, with Represenatives Mark Foley and Jim Kolbe being implicated in the scandal. Foley resigned from his seat in 2006 while Kolbe, though cleared in the investigation, decided not to run again.

Of course, there is ample evidence that the Congressional Page scandal is not merely the revelation of the depravity of a few perverted Representatives. Indeed, the Page scandal seems to simply be a window into the world of p***philia that weaves in and out of the halls of government, banking, business, and other powerful institutions and secret societies.
It is thus quite concerning that Sasse would find himself in the thick of not one but two sex and sexual molestation scandals in his relatively short career.

Nevertheless, Sasse moved on to work for the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Policy, during the years 2003-2005. These were critical years for both the country as a whole and the DOJ as an office because it was during this time that the infamous “torture memos” were crafted by the DOJ and the Attorney General’s office.

According to Wayne Madsen of the Wayne Madsen Report, Sasse was instrumental in coordinating the torture policy with none other than John Yoo, the Deputy Assistant U.S. Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel.

Madsen writes “It is inconceivable that Sasse did not have direct input on the policy that concluded that detainees of the U.S. government, including U.S. citizens, could be subjected to “enhanced interrogation techniques,” or simply, torture.”

Yet, as Deena Winter writes for Nebraska Watchdog, Sasse was not only involved in crafting torture policies but also in “intelligence sharing between the FBI and CIA.” Although little is actually known regarding Sasse’s exact duties in this regard, it appears that he was working as a liason between the two agencies, a quite sensitive and important role for someone who calls himself an outsider and desires to be seen as such.

After leaving the DOJ, Sasse began his work at the Department of Homeland Security where he worked for a very short period of time.”

Nebraska GOP Senate candidate, Ben Sasse on liberal side of immigration ordinance; no one bats an eye


Media sweetheart and Republican Senate candidate Ben Sasse owes the conservative voters of Nebraska an explanation. His position as president of Midland University, combined with an impressive resume and charismatic personality, has created the perfect facade to cover up glaring shortcomings, including back room deals revolving around immigration ordinances and personnel decisions made at Midland University.


Nebraska is dominated by conservative, right-wing ideals to the extent that only one Democratic presidential candidate has won the state’s electoral votes since 1940. The state’s voters tend to lean right on many of the most polarizing contemporary political issues.

In 2010, the people of Fremont City – a town of 26,000 residents in East Nebraska – voted in favor of Ordinance 5165, a piece of legislature often referred to as the immigration ordinance. The ordinance required all renters in the city to ostensibly prove their legal citizenship to continue their lease, and imposed strict penalties on landlords who knowingly rent to undocumented immigrants.

The vote was highly contentious, keeping Fremont’s City Council gridlocked until the ordinance passed with 58 percent of the town’s voters in favor of the measure. This nationally-covered decision drew criticism from across the country. The ordinance was aimed heavily at controlling immigration; a polarizing issue on local and national fronts.

Enter Midland University president and Nebraska GOP Senate candidate Ben Sasse.

The collaborative efforts of Sasse, the City Council, and other publicly elected city officials pursued a repeal effort of the publicly approved ordinance. This group challenged the ordinance in federal court, claiming it infringed upon constitutional rights. The challenge was overturned in 2013 by the United States Court of Appeals, who deemed it did not infringe on current federal immigration policies.

According to Sasse’s official website, the young Senatorial candidate is in favor of securing the border and forbidding undocumented immigrants from entering the country. This is a stance that most hardcore Republicans share, and it resonates with many conservative voters. If Sasse outwardly believes what’s stated on his website, then why did he allow, and allegedly endorse, the repeal of Ordinance 5165?


After rumors began stirring around City Council and Midland University’s involvement in trying to overturn the public’s decision, political blogger Chris Scott submitted a public records request. The results were shocking.

“I was taken aback. I’ve never seen this much outward coordination against the voters’ will,” Scott said.
The public records shed light on Fremont City Council president Jennifer Bixby, the Chamber of Commerce, and Midland University’s involvement in conspiring to overturn the citizens’ vote. The emails expose several individuals, specifically Mayor Scott Getzchman, City Council President Bixby, and Midland’s Vice President of Academic Affairs, Steven Bullocks of devising a scheme to foil the public will. What has been lost in the entire process is Midland University president Sasse’s involvement and his questionable political sensibilities.


Further complicating the situation is Sasse’s step-father, Larry Sheppard. This major shareholder of Don Peterson & Associates Real Estate and Dodge County Titles, was uncovered for renting to undocumented immigrants. The ordinance would immediately require Don Peterson & Assoc. to forbid all undocumented immigrants living in his residencies to renew their leases. This prospect would prove detrimental to Sheppard’s business and wallet.

According to the emails and leaked records requested by Scott, influxes of campaign funds were donated to Sasse from major players in an effort to repeal the ordinance. Many of them turned around and directly contributed to Sasse’s campaign fund before he officially announced his intention to run for the incumbent senate seat.

This Ordinance 5165 flip-flopping comes on the heels of Sasse’s hiring of Jason Dannelly as Midland’s athletic director. This position is essential to the health and success of the university’s athletic programs, as well as their recruitment and long-term financial success. A mere 15 months after signing Dannelly as AD, he abruptly resigned following accusations of making terroristic threats, a Class IV felony.

Yet, even after these two major blemishes on Sasse’s underwhelming political career, no one is asking the young candidate the tough questions.


What did Sasse know about Dannelly, and how long did he know it before informing the public? Why are Sasse’s Republican ideals so easily swayed? If Sasse can’t stand up to his friends in Fremont to maintain his political and ideological beliefs, how can he be expected to stand up to Barak Obama and the rest of the Democrats on Capitol Hill?

Stay tuned, Nebraska. Your GOP golden child may be just gilded, not solid.”

“Ben Sasse was in charge of supervising underage boys, who were later abused by members of Congress. The Congressional page program brings underage boys to Congress to run errands for Congressmen.

The Congressional page program was shut down in 2011 after numerous sex scandals occurred, including the Mark Foley sex scandal.

Pedophiles like Dennis Hastert fought earlier efforts to close down the page program:

On October 2, 2006, Representative Ray LaHood (R-IL) called for the page program to be temporarily suspended. He stated that “this is a flawed program. The fact that a member of Congress is sending e-mails to a page and that he can get away with it [shows that] obviously there are problems.” Two more Representatives, Jon Porter (R-NV) and Kay Granger (R-TX) also supported LaHood’s recommendation to suspend the page program until an outside team could evaluate its security protocol. Dennis Hastert announced on October 5, 2006 that he was launching an investigation to evaluate and make improvements to the page program.

Many suspected that the page program served as nothing more than a sex trafficking ring bringing pedophiles like Dennis Hastert naive young targets year after year.

Sasse has never disavowed Hastert, despite claiming that refusing to disavow is an admission of support.

One of Sasse’s supporters, Tom Delay, recently defended Hastert in court. Writing a letter to the judge asking for leniency, Delay wrote, “Hastert doesn’t deserve what he is going through.”

Tom Delay, who again is part of Sasse’s base of support, wrote a letter to a judge saying an admitted p***phile “doesn’t deserve what he is going through.”

This website's articles are obviously a serious resource for those whom are both fully woke and those just waking up. But the forums (when, as you said, not being derailed) also offer a powerful resource. Many minds from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, but united in quest for truth and dignity. We are a part of that and Im glad to be able to read your excellent posts!

Louisiana: High-Level Police Commander & Wife Arrested For Running Child Sex Ring
Matt Agorist / October 25, 2019



Livingston, LA — A high-level Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy — who commanded the SWAT team — has been arrested this week for unspeakable crimes against children. Dennis Perkins, 44, and his wife Cynthia Perkins, 34, are accused of multiple counts of child r*pe and the production of child pornography, among other disturbing charges.

On Wednesday, the couple was arrested after a months-long criminal probe headed up by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office. After the arrest, footage of the alleged child rapist was posted to Twitter, showing him being led into prison in shackles.
#BREAKING: Former Livingston Parish Sheriff’s deputy, Dennis Perkins, has been booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center. He and his wife are accused of child r*pe and the production of child pornography, among other disturbing charges. @WAFB https://www.wafb.com/2019/10/23/livingston-parish-teacher-booked-r*pe-child-porn-charges
According to a source close to the case, the couple was seen in videos and photos committing unspeakable acts with naked children. Horrifying indeed. When police attempted to arrest Dennis (Denny) Perkins, he reportedly knew they were coming so he tossed his cellphone in a nearby river and fled. This move also led to the top cop being charged with obstruction of justice on top of the child r*pe counts.

WAFB 9 reports, that Denny Perkins was a lieutenant with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Unit (SWAT) before being terminated the week of Oct. 21. He was hired in 2002 from the Walker Police Department. This alleged child rapist commanded an entire SWAT division and was considered a “hero” by the community.

After her arrest, his wife, Cynthia Perkins resigned from her teaching position at Westside Junior High School in Walker. It is currently unknown if the victims in the images were students of Cynthia’s.

The investigation found so much disturbing evidence against the Perkins that this top cop and his wife are facing more than 120 combined charges.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says Denny Perkins is charged with 60 counts of production of pornography involving a juvenile under the age of 13, two counts of first degree r*pe, three counts of possession of pornography involving a juvenile under the age of 13, two counts of video voyeurism, and two counts of obscenity, according to WAFB.
Investigators with the Attorney General’s Office apprehended him while he was on a fishing trip in Toledo Bend. He was picked up again Wednesday afternoon to be transferred to Livingston Parish. He was booked into Livingston Parish Wednesday evening with a bond of $1,675,000, then transferred to Ascension Parish shortly thereafter for his own safety.​
Cynthia Perkins is charged with 60 counts of production of pornography involving a juvenile under the age of 13 and two counts of first-degree r*pe. She’s being held on a $500,000 bond.

The investigation started after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip that the couple was raping children, filming it, and then distributing it to their network.

If you or anyone you know was molested or raped by this couple, please contact the FBI with your story. It is highly likely that they have more victims who have remained silent because their attacker was a SWAT commander.

“It is a sad day for us, for all law enforcement officers, when you arrest one of your own,” Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard said Wednesday. “We at the LPSO work hard every day to retain the trust placed in us by our citizens. I understand this was a veteran law enforcement officer, one who had dedicated a lot of time and effort into this community, but as I have said in the past, no one is above the law. This type of alleged behavior will not be tolerated by me or anyone at the LPSO. I do not condone these alleged acts. I am disappointed. I have always considered Denny a friend and a family member. The Attorney General’s Office is leading this investigation. We are assisting and offering to cooperate in any way we can.”

Indeed, it is a sad day when police officers — the ones who claim to protect us — are caught preying on society’s most vulnerable. However, there are a lot of sad days as this situation plays out like a broken record, over and over again.

Pedophiles often seek out positions of power and authority over children so they are in a position to abuse. Priests, teachers, coaches, police officers, counselors, and others are just some of the fields in which pedophiles will attempt to gain employment. Unfortunately, it’s not the first time we have reported on police officers using their badge and so-called “authority” to r*pe kids.

As TFTP has reported, a studyexposed the startling fact that police officers are arrested about 1,100 times a year, or roughly three officers charged every day. Many of these arrests are over unspeakable sex crimes.

“Police crimes are not uncommon,” the study’s lead researcher Philip M. Stinson concluded. “Our data directly contradicts some of the prevailing assumptions and the proposition that only a small group of rotten apples perpetrate the vast majority of police crime.” Although nearly 60 percent of the crimes “occurred when the officer was technically off-duty,” Stinson wrote, “a significant portion of these so-called off-duty crimes also lies within the context of police work and the perpetrator’s role as a police officer, including instances where off-duty officers flash a badge, an official weapon, or otherwise use their power, authority, and the respect afforded to them as a means to commit crime.”

According to a report from WaPo, in cases involving allegations of sexual abuse, 72 percent of the officers were fired, and more than 80 percent resulted in convictions, the study found. There were 422 reported cases of forcible and statutory r*pe, 352 cases of forcible fondling and 94 sodomy cases over the seven years of the study, which Stinson called “larger than expected based on the existing research.” The data search turned up 174 examples of male officers arrested in cases of “Driving While Female,” in which women drivers were harassed or assaulted. About 82 percent of those cases ended in convictions.

Despite the high rate of conviction, the sentences handed out are insultingly low.
