Wayne County Man Pleads Guilty to Sexual Abuse of a Minor

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A Wayne County man pled guilty today to a sex crime, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  Joshua I. Morrison entered his guilty plea to one count of sexual abuse of a minor.  Stuart commended the investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

“It’s a parent’s worst nightmare,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “To have a child victimized in this way is unimaginable period.  But to think it would happen while on a family vacation is even worse.  My office stands ready to prosecute every single child sex offender brought to us by our law enforcement partners.”

Morrison admitted that the sexual abuse took place on board a cruise ship in international waters on or about 12 a.m. on January 9, 2016.  He admitted that he was 18 years old at the time, the minor was 12 years old at the time, and he knew the minor was 12 years old at the time.  He further admitted that she performed oral sex on him and that he attempted to engage in sexual intercourse.

Whatever the left wants to believe must be true! Let's imagine the worse case scenario. Okay, and since we can't imagine any other possible scenario, or don't want to, then the worst must be true! It's time to panic again!

Yes, you are correct, it certainly does belong in the Trump thread...

Our institutions of Justice were defanged for the benefit of the traffickers for years.

Trump changed that and hasn’t let up, either.

If you think I may have been a victim, Jules, then what the fuck are doing mocking me for it? Are you mentally ill? Are you an offender?

One of the most idiotic things I've seen in the press all day is the charge--including by establishment-leaning Republican politicians and pundits--that President Trump did not humiliate Putin during the press conference by telling him to stop interfering in our election process. That President Trump had a "missed opportunity." 

For those who haven't watched the Trump Putin press conference ...

Interesting to see Newt talk like that.

As the shit approaches the fan, we will see true colors shining through here there and everywhere, as the rats are exposed.

I’m not saying he is one, based only on this, but it is going to happen, a lot, and soon.

Jon,

A lot of people have a lot of shit hidden and President Trump is kicking the hornet's nest.

I like Newt, but he's a politician. 

So I love it when even he squeals a bit from fear of being stung.

:) 

The thing is, President Trump's base is gigantic and growing every day and they love it, too.

Michael

"Where is the server? Where are the servers? Where are the servers...Where are the e-mails?" Heh.

The Panic Press isn't mentioning this. It appears that Rand Paul is the only person on the political stage who listened to the entire thing and grasped the full context (or didn't decide to willfully ignore it in order to serve the Narrative™). Nor are the Panic Press focused on Putin's response -- on evidence, trials and convictions versus accusations, and the fact that he and Trump have serious disagreements, and everything isn't all hearts and flowers, etc.

Get a grip, Narrative™ Ninnies.

And Newt? Yeah, this isn't the first time that he hasn't had the spine to stand up the to a Narrative™ Panic. He has a limit. Mere appearances and spun illusions can matter a lot to him.

That’s better, and yes he is doing a good job of cleaning up the sick fucks.

No I am not one.(figures you would throw that out there...are you one and just putting on an indignant act?)<—-I know you are not one but you see how it looks.

I am a father so yeah the topic is important.

Looks like I hit a nerve though .?

As to why I mocked you?  Just payback for you being such an insulting cocksucking  prick douchebag to me.

Yes, now I will fuck off and leave you alone, unless of course you don’t want me to...?

Ultra Grand Supreme Hoopla!  with Techron™

How to wade through the rushing waters and get to the shore?  I mean, if there are "legitimate" concerns about The Give and The Get in Helsinki, how could one separate out the utter crap and the just barely cogent? 

If criticism of President Trump's performance in Helsinki is "illegitimate,"  then the matter is simple. If Director Coats contradicts his boss about Russian "active measures," then it's bullshit. Every criticism of President Trump is bullshit. Wheeeee ...

Some "enemies of the American people" per the President have made illegitimate criticisms. Ergo, all criticisms are illegitimate.  Wheeeeee ...

Enemies of the People Jonathan Swann and Mike Allen purport to talk to people in the Administration. Sure, Jan.

Quote

Trump officials embarrassed by Putin show

[...]

President Trump sucking up to Vladamir Putin after the summit in Helsinki yesterday was such an unbelievable, indelible moment that many deflated White House officials didn’t even bother to defend or explain it.

Between the lines: The prevailing theory among Trump aides and alumni is pretty simple. "He can’t separate meddling from colluding," said one source close to Trump. "He can’t publicly express any nuanced view because he thinks it concedes maybe there's something he did wrong."

  • Trump has, at times, privately conceded that Russia probably hacked. But the minute the word “election” comes up in conversation, his brain shifts into an attack mode that throws U.S. intelligence out the window and delights Putin.
  • The source added: "His P.R. and legal strategy right now is to impugn the FBI in order to inoculate himself from the Mueller investigation writ large."

What we're hearing:

  • A former senior White House official, who worked closely with Trump, immediately texted us: “Need a shower.”
  • One of Trump's own former National Security Council officials texted: “Dude. This is a total [effing] disgrace. The President has lost his mind."
  • CBS "Face the Nation" anchor Margaret Brennan, who was in the audience, told AP she was messaging some U.S. officials during the speech who said they were turning off the television.

The Russian leader smirked his way through the questioning over election interference, puffing and thrusting his chest at U.S. reporters.

  • Trump nodded along at times. When the two leaders walked out from under the golden glass chandelier and left the room, they left a speechless press corps.
  • The journalists were questioning whether we actually heard what they heard: The president of the United States was putting the methodical assessments of his own country’s intelligence services on an equal footing with the denials of one of America’s most underhanded enemies.
  • Trump said: "I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.  And what he did is an incredible offer; he offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people.  I think that’s an incredible offer."
  • Why it matters ... Jeremy Bash, former chief of staff at the Pentagon and CIA, told Brian Williams on MSNBC: "Ronald Reagan won the Cold War. Today's Donald Trump lost the post-Cold War for the United States of America."

The shell shock in the room was a preview of the global reaction:

  • From a front-page N.Y. Times analysis by White House correspondent Mark Landler: "His statements were so divorced from American policy goals, so at odds with the rest of his administration, so inexplicable on so many levels that they brought to the surface a question that has long shadowed Mr. Trump: Does Russia have something on him?"
  • Anchors and commentators, who already had become loose with their language, became untethered from journalistic norms, just as Trump had abandoned presidential norms. On CNN, Anderson Cooper called the performance "disgraceful" and Chris Cuomo called it "a betrayal."
  • The #1 "Most Popular" piece on NYTimes.com last night was a column by Thomas Friedman, who's no partisan hack, declaring "overwhelming evidence that our president, ... is ... engaged in treasonous behavior."
  • Friedman added: "Every single Republican lawmaker will be — and should be — asked on the election trail: Are you with Trump and Putin or are you with the C.I.A., F.B.I. and N.S.A.?"
  • N.Y. Times Qu0te of the Day ... Sen. John McCain: "No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant."

Trump friends and allies, who often avert their gaze from his outbursts, made it clear that he's on his own for this one:

  • Newt Gingrich, one of the most vocal Trump backers among establishment Republicans, tweeted: "President Trump must clarify his statements in Helsinki on our intelligence system and Putin. It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected — immediately."
  • Republican congressional leaders said they believe the intelligence community.
  • Drudge, usually a Trump champion, bannered: "PUTIN DOMINATES IN HEL."

Future foretold: It’s highly unlikely any top White House officials will quit in protest; inconceivable congressional Republicans will do anything other than complain (mostly gently) in public; and unimaginable Trump will regret or rethink his pro-Putin approach. 

LIES!  Lies, lies, LIES!

Jules, you have told me in private messages that you will grant me my wish to stop addressing me and leave me alone.

But you keep coming back, this time to insinuate I have been a victim of sexual abuse and to mock me for that victimization.

You are sick.

I am done asking you to leave me alone, it is pointless.

You have a predator’s urge to stalk and harass. Knock yourself out, piece of shit.

Fox just had a former "spook" saying, as regards America's relationship with Russia, Trust But Verify, to achieve our world leadership goals. 

I will wait to see what happens with Russia and North Korea before I simulate a belch of disgust.

From Billy's sources above:

Quote

 

"We got the forensics from the pros that they hired which -- again, best practice is always to get access to the machines themselves, but this, my folks tell me, was an appropriate substitute," Comey said.

DNC spokeswoman Adrienne Watson told PolitiFact that the DNC cooperated with the FBI’s requests, which resulted in the DNC providing a copy of their server.

 

So, the FBI itself didn't actually make the copy of the server, but rather someone whom "they" (the DNC) hired made a copy which was then given to the FBI? Is that what's being said here? And we are to believe that the DNC's providing a copy could not possibly result in the FBI not getting everything it needed? Is it not reasonable to consider that the DNC's providing a copy might involve some of the same ethics that Hillary used in wiping her illegal private server? And if such shenanigans might possibly have happened, by what means would we determine if the copy provided by the DNC was complete and not Clintonized? The only means would be comparing it to the original server(s), no?

Of all of the things that are possible with modern technology, are people trying to suggest that it is physically impossible to make an altered copy which intentionally excludes files and which leaves no trace of the alterations?!!!

Um, the politifact chap tells us that doing detective work on the actual server includes a risk of contamination. That's why copies are made and worked on. Well, isn't asking the DNC for a copy of the evidence much like asking the family of an alleged crime victim to collect fingerprints and hair samples, and then send them to the lab? That's a pro move? Trust us, nothing could have gone wrong there?

But I'm supposed to believe that the above questions are illogical, ridiculous, and silly beyond all embarrassment? Tee hee hee?

I like shows like "The Closer" where Brenda hands the alleged, uncharged perpetrator a cup of coffee, and then dusts it for prints. I wonder if her supply closet has special cups that retain perfect prints?  And saliva. Got to get that DNA.

Your average coffee cup really is pretty much the idea surface for prints.
