Former Central New York pastor returns to porn as Nadia Hilton: ‘I just want to be me’

Nadia Hilton is back.

Former Central New York pastor Crystal DiGregorio has returned to her stage name and is doing porn again on OnlyFans, an online subscription service popular with adult entertainers. She’s still an ordained minister, but said she stepped away from the New Beginnings Christian Life church in Fulton, N.Y., after getting tired of dealing with judgmental parishioners.

“I’m not in any particular (religious) group anymore. I decided to step back from all that after seeing a lot of judgment from church people. Very judgmental,” she told syracuse.com | The Post-Standard in a phone interview.

DiGregorio, who grew up in Oswego and now lives in Clay, appeared in more than 100 films over 10 years as porn actress “Nadia Hilton,” earning $300,000 a year. She gave it all up in 2015 when she found God and her then-husband David Bassette; they both served as pastors at the Fulton church until they divorced.

DiGregorio, 37, has since remarried and embraced her famous alter ego again on social media. She opened up about her experiences last month in a video for “Brand New Me,” an international YouTube series for truly (formerly known as Barcroft TV) that focuses on “amazing true stories celebrating difference, maintaining a sense of wonder and confronting the extreme.” The channel has 5.8 billion views total and DiGregorio’s video has already been watched more than 200,000 times on Facebook and YouTube.

“After porn I did a 180 and became a pastor, and now I just want to be me,” she said in the video.

DiGregorio told syracuse.com that she does not do porn scenes with other people on OnlyFans. She still considers it porn, but is more like an adult model whose fans can message her one-and-one and ask for her to wear (or not wear) specific things in solo photos or videos.

“People are pretty respectful. I don’t have a lot of issues on that,” she said.

OnlyFans has 130 million users and 2 million creators who have collectively earned $5 billion, including many sex workers who joined during the Covid-19 pandemic when in-person strip clubs and brothels shut down. The site made headlines last month when it said it would block sexually explicit content on its app to appease banks and payment processors, but quickly dropped the planned ban after partners promised to support “all genres of creators.”

DiGregorio said she still goes to church, but is no longer contracted with an agency or an adult video company, allowing her to choose what she does and when. That’s a big change from when she was a pastor and was told she couldn’t show skin, wear makeup, or have visible tattoos.

“Doing OnlyFans as a Christian, I know I’m going to have criticism,” she said in the truly video. “The way I look at posting adult content is: God brought me into this world naked. Posting pictures naked I don’t think is this big huge crime or, you know, this big sin.

“I’m happy being in the middle. Not all porn, and not all church.”

Her husband Andrew told truly that he fully supports her (”As long as it doesn’t break up our marriage, I’m down with it”) and even helps manage her OnlyFans page for her. People who are interested in following DiGregorio can sign up at onlyfans.com and search for “Nadia Hilton.”

DiGregorio previously said she hated doing adult films, but embraced it for a while, even opening an Oswego nightclub with her name on it: Crystal. The club closed after a few years, though, and Bassette had both legal and financial trouble, forcing her to file for bankruptcy. She broke her nose in a 2014 car crash and was arrested for drunk driving. Her ex-boyfriend, fired Syracuse police sergeant Kevin Blair, sued her for $1 million, alleging years of abuse and a smear campaign that cost him his job.

But now she’s a happily married mother of four who’s accepted who she is, flaws and all, and wants others to do the same.

“I don’t judge anybody,” she told syracuse.com. “People can live their lives and do whatever they want to do.”

Facebook AI Creates Its Own Language In Creepy Preview Of Our Potential Future

British scientist Stephen Hawking warned about the[-]
potentially tragic consequences of artificial intelligence in 2014. / AFP / NIKLAS HALLE’N (Photo credit should read NIKLAS HALLE’N/AFP/Getty Images)

Facebook shut down an artificial intelligence engine after developers discovered that the AI had created its own unique language that humans can’t understand. Researchers at the Facebook AI Research Lab (FAIR) found that the chatbots had deviated from the script and were communicating in a new language developed without human input. It is as concerning as it is amazing – simultaneously a glimpse of both the awesome and horrifying potential of AI.

Artificial Intelligence is not sentient—at least not yet. It may be someday, though – or it may approach something close enough to be dangerous. Ray Kurzweil warned years ago about the technological singularity. The Oxford dictionary defines “the singularity” as, “A hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence and other technologies have become so advanced that humanity undergoes a dramatic and irreversible change.”

To be clear, we aren’t really talking about whether or not Alexa is eavesdropping on your conversations, or whether Siri knows too much about your calendar and location data. There is a massive difference between a voice-enabled digital assistant and an artificial intelligence. These digital assistant platforms are just glorified web search and basic voice interaction tools. The level of “intelligence” is minimal compared to a true machine learning artificial intelligence. Siri and Alexa can’t hold a candle to IBM’s Watson.

Scientists and tech luminaries, including Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Steve Wozniak have warned that AI could lead to tragic unforeseen consequences. Eminent physicist Stephen Hawking cautioned in 2014 that AI could mean the end of the human race. “It would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”

Why is this scary? Think SKYNET from Terminator, or WOPR from War Games. Our entire world is wired and connected. An artificial intelligence will eventually figure that out – and figure out how to collaborate and cooperate with other AI systems. Maybe the AI will determine that mankind is a threat, or that mankind is an inefficient waste of resources – conclusions that seems plausible from a purely logical perspective.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence have phenomenal potential to simplify, accelerate, and improve many aspects of our lives. Computers can ingest and process massive quantities of data and extract patterns and useful information at a rate exponentially faster than humans, and that potential is being explored and developed around the world.

I am not saying the sky is falling. I am not saying we need to pull the plug on all machine learning and artificial intelligence and return to a simpler, more Luddite existence. We do need to proceed with caution, though. We need to closely monitor and understand the self-perpetuating evolution of an artificial intelligence, and always maintain some means of disabling it or shutting it down. If the AI is communicating using a language that only the AI knows, we may not even be able to determine why or how it does what it does, and that might not work out well for mankind.

Ex-Prisons officer suspected of leaking R. Kelly’s jail communications to blogger, federal records show

R&B superstar R. Kelly had been locked up at Chicago’s federal jail for four months when a popular YouTube personality touted an inside scoop on the singer’s tumultuous relationship with two girlfriends still living in his high-rise apartment.

Apparently wanting to keep the women in his camp, Kelly allegedly had a friend bring $1,500 in cash to the Trump Tower residence to help pay their bills, blogger Tasha K. said in an “exclusive” video posted to her YouTube channel in November 2019.

One of them, Joycelyn Savage, was angry she’d been kept off Kelly’s visitors list, according to Tasha K. The other, Azriel Clary, had left the apartment and not come back, throwing Kelly into a tizzy, she said.

How did Tasha K. know all this? Well, she wasn’t telling.

“Yeah there’s a phone tap somewhere and I’m not gonna tell you where it’s at,” Tasha K. told her viewers during the 39-minute video, which has so far collected more than 328,000 views. “I have the plug. I’m not gonna tell you where I got the information from, but just listen to the damn information, OK?”

Now, it appears federal investigators allegedly know exactly how Tasha K. was plugged in. A federal search warrant recently unsealed in Chicago shows that agents seized a laptop from a U.S. Bureau of Prisons officer who was suspected of illegally accessing Kelly’s recorded phone calls, emails, visitor logs and other restricted information during his stay at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on West Van Buren Street.

The female officer, who at the time worked as a disciplinary hearing officer at a federal prison in Wisconsin, accessed Kelly’s records more than 150 times in a six-month period in 2019 even though the officer was not assigned to the MCC and “had no official reason” to be looking them up, according to the 24-page document obtained by the Tribune.

The officer, identified only as Officer A, also emailed herself a 12-page scan of Kelly’s jail records, according to an affidavit from an investigator with the U.S. Justice Department’s inspector general’s office.

The officer retired in December 2019, according to the affidavit. She has not been charged.

The unsealing of the search warrant comes in the middle of Kelly’s racketeering trial in New York on charges alleging he was the head of a criminal enterprise that for decades recruited girls and young women and held them against their will to satisfy Kelly’s illegal sexual appetites.

Kelly is identified in the warrant only as Inmate A, though he’s described as a “nationally recognized celebrity whose criminal case has received media attention.” Sources confirmed the investigation and videos referenced in the federal document line up with Kelly-related videos posted on YouTube.

In an emailed statement Tuesday, a BOP spokesman wrote the bureau could not comment on “issues pending investigation” for privacy, safety and security reasons.

The documents offer a glimpse into the unbridled cottage industry that has sprung up on social media since the allegations against Kelly exploded in 2019 with the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly,” which eventually led to federal indictments in Brooklyn and Chicago as well as similar charges in Cook County.

Since then, Kelly’s supporters and detractors have devoted countless hours on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram parsing every last detail of the singer’s life and the charges against him.

When a south suburban woman posted Kelly’s $100,000 bail in the Cook County case in February 2019, she instantly became a hot topic of conversation, with some bloggers on social media calling for a boycott of the restaurant she owns, while others wrongly identified her as the operator of a South Side day care.

As the trial has been unfolding in New York, one blogger, who posts under the name Infamous Sylvia, has even been using actors to read aloud from the trial transcripts, creating what she bills as “role reenactment.”

But perhaps none of the gossipmongers has been as successful as Tasha K., whose celebrity news dispatches on the YouTube channel “Unwinewithtashak” regularly garner hundreds of thousands of views and, presumably, significant advertising dollars.

The 39-year-old Atlanta-based blogger, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, often touts her videos as offering “exclusive” information and insight into Kelly’s world, with interviews of key players as well as updates on the allegations, including many that go far beyond even the most salacious details offered in court.

According to the warrant, the warden of Chicago’s MCC first reported to BOP internal affairs on Nov. 22, 2019, that Tasha K. “had revealed sensitive law enforcement information” regarding the celebrity identified as Kelly, including “information that would have been known to BOP employees who had monitored Inmate A’s telephone calls or accessed the recordings of those calls.”

The warrant mentions three specific videos posted by Tasha K. that are all still publicly viewable on YouTube. Among them was a Nov. 8, 2019, video titled “Exclusive: New R. Kelly ENABLERS REVEALED,” where she appears to scroll through her cellphone while reading a summary of a recent call between Kelly and Savage that was recorded on the jail’s system.

“I got some explosive information!” Tasha K. says after taking a sip of white wine from a large goblet. “So Rob called Joycelyn and she was crying hysterically. She said Azriel was leaving the Trump Tower and she was not coming back. Now I told you I got a (expletive) plug, so this is all facts.”

Another video posted on Dec. 22, 2019, was titled “R. Kelly RELEASED Emails PROVES he can’t read or write,” according to the affidavit. The 16-minute video, which had more than 512,000 views as of Tuesday, features Tasha K. reading verbatim from emails Kelly purportedly sent from jail to Savage a month earlier, including details of how he misspelled the word “Hi” as “Hai.”

“I’m not gonna put it up here because this is considered somebody’s private information or whatever,” she says, using air quotes as she looks down at her phone. “But, you know, my word? Trust me.”

Kebe could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.

A review of Officer A’s logins to the Bureau of Prisons internal information system, meanwhile, showed that the officer had improperly accessed Kelly’s records 153 times between July 15, 2019, when Kelly first arrived at the MCC, and Dec. 12, 2019, shortly before her retirement, according to the warrant.

During that time, the officer also accessed and printed out Kelly’s visitor logs and payments made into and out of his commissary account, which included the names of people sending money to Kelly while he was in jail, according to the warrant.

On Nov. 13, 2019, the officer sent herself a 12-page scan of Kelly’s jail records from her official BOP email account to a Gmail address registered to her, according to the warrant. Among the information in that scan was a log of Kelly’s emails, including some later divulged by Tasha K. in her video blog.

The warrant sought permission to search Officer A’s desktop computer for any evidence of a crime, including any internet searches of R. Kelly as well as financial transactions or discussion of payments with Tasha K.

‘American Horror Story’: Feds Pay for Full-Term Aborted Baby Parts

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) granted $3.2 million in federal funds to the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) to achieve its goal of becoming a fetal tissue collection site that could quickly harvest the organs of full-term aborted babies, according to documents obtained as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.

Judicial Watch and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) announced Tuesday the receipt of 252 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which oversees NIH, the nation’s medical research agency.

According to a press release by Judicial Watch, which represents CMP in its lawsuit against HHS, the documents reveal the taxpayer funds were spent on Pitt’s quest to become a “Tissue Hub,” for the harvesting of tissue and organs of aborted babies of 6-42 weeks gestation.

“The NIH grant application for just one of Pitt’s numerous experiments with aborted infants reads like an episode of American Horror Story,” said CMP project lead David Daleiden about the documents obtained via the FOIA request.

Daleiden, who conducted undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood’s alleged fetal tissue trafficking with biomedical procurement companies, elaborated:

Infants in the womb, some old enough to be viable, are being aborted alive and killed for organ harvesting, in order to bring in millions of dollars in taxpayer funding for Pitt and the Planned Parenthood abortion business it supports. People are outraged by such disregard for the lives of the vulnerable. Law enforcement and public officials should act immediately to bring the next Kermit Gosnell to justice under the law.

In May, CMP released a video that alleged NIH uses taxpayer funds to sponsor experimentation at Pitt on aborted babies obtained from a local Planned Parenthood facility.

Judicial Watch noted the current documents revealed Pitt’s goal was to use the taxpayer grant funds to:

Develop a pipeline to the acquisition, quality control and distribution of human genitourinary [urinary and genital organs and functions] samples obtained throughout development (6-42 weeks gestation). … [and] generate an ongoing resource to distribute fresh developmental human genitourinary samples from various stages (6-42 weeks) to the GUDMAP [GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project] Atlas projects.

Pitt’s proposal also indicated the school asserted it had been “collecting fetal tissue for over 10 years … includ[ing] liver, heart, gonads, legs, brain, genitourinary tissues including kidneys, ureters and bladders,” Judicial Watch reported, adding the university said in 2015 it had already “disbursed over 300 fresh samples collected from 77 cases,” and envisioned its collections “can be significantly ramped up as material could have been accrued from as many as 725 cases last year.”

The documents also reveal, stated Judicial Watch, that Pitt records the “warm ischemic time on our samples and take steps to keep it at a minimum to ensure the highest quality biological specimens.”

“Pitt’s statement suggests the time between the abortion and collection is minimal,” Judicial Watch explained, adding the university also included a “racial target for harvesting of human fetal parts.”

“Of its planned aborted ‘subjects’ Pitt desired 50% to be minority fetuses,” the legal watchdog group said. “The proposal suggests that the ‘subjects’ be diverse because Pittsburgh is diverse, the U.S. Census Bureau shows the city of Pittsburgh is close to 70% white.”

In its grant application proposal, Pitt also gave a target goal of having “available a minimum of 5 cases (tissues and if possible other biologicals) per week of gestational age for ages 6-42 weeks.”

According to Judicial Watch, the documents show NIH had already granted Pitt at least $2.7 million for its human fetal tissue harvesting activities.

“These documents show taxpayer money is being used to turn the University of Pittsburgh [into] a one-stop human fetal tissue shop – from procuring the tissue from elective abortions, ‘subdividing’ the human remains, to distributing and shipping the harvested tissue,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Aunt of dead kids drove around with their bodies for months after killing them, police say

Documents allege that 33-year-old Nicole Michelle Johnson drove around the dead children in the trunk of her car for months. One of the children had been in the trunk of the car since May of 2020.

Baltimore County Police have charged Johnson with failure to report the deaths of the children, child abuse resulting in death, and neglect.

The bodies of 7-year-old Joshlyn Marie James Johnson and 5-year-old Larry Darnell O’Neal were discovered just after 11 p.m. on Wednesday when officers conducted a traffic stop in Essex, Maryland. 

Johnson was initially pulled over for speeding in a car that had fake paper tags from West Virginia. The vehicle was unregistered and uninsured, police say.

The officer issued citations to Johnson, at which point, she allegedly stated:

It don’t matter, I won’t be here in five days. Y’all going to see me on the news, y’all going to see me on the news making my big debut.

The dead children were discovered as the car was being prepared to be towed. Documents state that when Johnson went to the trunk of her car to get her belongings, the officer smelled “the unmistakable odor of decomposition.”

Johnson removed a plastic tote and a clear trash bag from the car. The officer noticed maggots in the clear bag. Johnson claimed that there were just dirty blankets inside the bag.

The officer continued to have Johnson remove the blankets, revealing a suitcase. When Johnson revealed the body of a child inside the suitcase, officers say she ran. She was apprehended a short time later.

The body of the second child was discovered inside the plastic tote by homicide investigators.

Johnson told investigators that both children are her sister’s. She apparently turned them over to Johnson because she said that she could not care for them.

Johnson also told investigators that she was at the Regal Inn in May of 2020 when she became angered at one of the children and hit her several times, causing her to fall and hit her head.

At that time, she said she placed the child in a suitcase and put the suitcase in her car.

Johnson also told investigators about a time two months ago, when the second child wanted to lay down in the back of her car. She said she noticed blood on the child’s left leg but didn’t say more about the injury. The child never woke up. At that point, she put the child in the tote and kept him in the trunk next to his sister.

The autopsy revealed how malnourished the children were. The 7-year-old child weighed 18 pounds when she died. Her 5-year-old brother weighed 21 pounds.

MORGUE WORKER ARRESTED AFTER GIVING BIRTH TO A DEAD MAN’S BABY

Morgue worker arrested after giving birth to a dead man’s baby

A 26-year-old morgue worker was arrested this morning after a DNA test revealed that her newborn child was the result of a necrophiliac intercourse with a man she was supposed to autopsy.

Jennifer Burrows, an assistant pathologist with the Jackson County medical examiner services, is accused of having sex with dozens of corpses over the course of the last two years, a behavior which led the birth of a baby boy on January 7.

According to the Kansas City Missouri Police Department, her baby is the son of a man who died in a car accident in March 2017, and whose body she was supposed to autopsy. They allege that Ms. Burrows sexually abused more than 60 other dead bodies, belonging to males aged from 17 to 71 years of age.

“We opened an investigation into this case in October after we were informed that the suspect may have been sexually abusing corpses,” Police Chief Forté told reporters. “We accumulated enough evidence over the last few months to obtain a warrant for a paternity test on her newborn son. It confirmed our suspicions, that the father of her child was, indeed, a 57-year old veterinarian from Texas who was driving through the county when he had a fatal car accident. All the evidence that we have gathered suggests that he had never met Ms. Burrows before his demise and that he was already dead when the baby was conceived.”

There are currently no laws (state or federal) governing or explicitly outlawing the practice of necrophilia since the corpse is considered human remains and no longer living. Therefore, it is technically legal in the state of Missouri, and Ms. Burrows’ actions are judged as an indecent treatment of a corpse.

She is facing a total of 158 charges, including indecent treatment of a corpse, disorderly conduct, indecent exposure and possession of illegal drugs.

The psychologists and experts that we interviewed were divided in their interpretation of Ms. Burrows’ case.

Some, like Professor Isabella Ramirez of the University of Missouri, believe that the young woman was suffering from a psychosis and had, at least partially, lost any notion of reality.

Others, like Dr. Gerald Porter, a well-known psychologist and expert in sexual disorders associated with the Institute of Psychological Sciences, believe that the accused is clearly a compulsive necrophiliac and that her choice of profession was inspired by her sexual deviation in the first place.

All seem to agree, however, that the 26-year-old woman was suffering from mental problems and that she will probably register a plea of insanity.

R. Kelly sexually abused teenage boy he met in McDonald’s and bribed officials for information about his legal case, prosecutors allege

R. Kelly appears in court in Chicago in 2019.
Antonio Perez/Associated Press
  • New York prosecutors filed a 55-page motion seeking permission to admit new evidence in R. Kelly’s trial.
  • The filing alleges that Kelly bribed officials and sexually abused underage boys.
  • The disgraced R&B singer is due to stand trial on August 9 in New York on racketeering charges.
  • Visit Insider’s homepage for more stories.

On Friday, prosecutors in New York filed a 55-page motion asking a judge for permission to admit new evidence in R. Kelly’s sexual abuse trial.

Federal prosecutors say they have evidence of several previously uncharged crimes committed by Kelly, including bribing officials for information and sexually abusing underage boys.

The R&B singer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, 54, is set to face trial on August 9th in a federal court in New York. He faces racketeering charges for allegedly running an elaborate criminal enterprise to kidnap and sexually exploit young women.

The original New York indictment from March 2020 refers to six victims. The latest court filing refers to 20 Jane Does, and 2 John Does, according to NPR.

One of the new allegations made by prosecutors is that in 2006 Kelly began a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy he met at a McDonald’s in Chicago.

According to the filing, the boy introduced Kelly to a second teenage boy aged 16 or 17, with who Kelly also had a sexual relationship with. Prosecutors allege that the singer coerced the second boy to have sex with others, which he often videotaped.

In the complaint, prosecutors added that they have a witness who claims Kelly made her download child pornography involving boys.

Prosecutors also allege that in 2019 R. Kelly bribed a Cook County clerk in Illinois in an attempt to gain information about his legal case following the release of the documentary series Surviving R. Kelly.

The document cites an audio recording of a phone call between Kelly and his “crisis manager.” They discuss bribing the clerk with $2,500 and providing them with a burner phone to relay information back to Kelly’s team.

Prosecutors also want to introduce evidence that in 1994 Kelly bribed an Illinois state employee with $500 to create a fake ID for the underage singer Aaliyah so that he could marry her. 

The court filing alleges that Kelly believed he had impregnated Aaliyah, then 15, and wanted to marry her, so she could not be made to testify against him in court. Aaliyah died in a plane crash in 2001.

Prosecutors also want to play videos and audio recordings for the jury, showing Kelly physically and verbally abusing women.

Other allegations in the filing include unlawful imprisonment, hush-money payments, and physical abuse.

Kelly remains in prison in Brooklyn and has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him.

In addition to the New York trial, Kelly also faces charges of possessing child pornography and obstructing federal agents by bribing his victims in a separate case in Chicago, Illinois.

The Chicago trial is currently scheduled for September.

The Satanic Temple Celebrates First Symbolic Satanic Monument on Public Property

Satanists to host ritual in Maryland to honor the “Bladensburg Satanic Peace Cross”

SALEM, Mass., July 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — In response to a Supreme Court decision, The Satanic Temple has designated the 40-foot-tall Bladensburg Peace Cross in Maryland to be a Satanic icon. The Satanic Temple will be calling the monument “The Bladensburg Satanic Peace Cross” and will be hosting a ritual in honor of Satanist veterans at the Bladensburg site on July 10 at 5:00 PM.

40-foot-tall Bladensburg Satanic Peace Cross in Maryland

TST will be hosting a ritual in honor of Satanist veterans at the Bladensburg site on July 10 at 5:00 PM.

In 2019, the Supreme Court ruled in American Legion v. American Humanist Association that maintaining the Peace Cross on public land does not violate the Establishment Clause of the US Constitution. Delivering the decision, Justice Alito wrote that “The Bladensburg Cross has come to represent… a place for the community to gather and honor all veterans and their sacrifices for this Nation…”

TST spokesman and co-founder Lucien Greaves notes, “Deciding that the Bladensburg Cross does not just represent Christians, but people of all faiths including Satanists, is a kind of blasphemy that is consistent with Satanism. As a symbol for all veterans, the Cross represents Satanist veterans who we are honoring in our ceremony.”

TST has a long tradition of supporting its military members. This has included assisting TST members who want to organize prayer at the US Naval Academy, the appointment of lay leaders to establish a religious ministry in the US military, and the construction of a veterans memorial that was intended to be erected in Minnesota.

While Belle Plaine, MN, has the distinction of being the first city to approve a Satanic monument, consistent with the Supreme Court ruling, Bladensburg, MD, is the first city to actually have The Satanic Temple-designated Satanic monument on state property.

Greaves added, “The Satanic Temple will refer to the memorial as the Bladensburg Satanic Peace Cross. We expect the celebration of this Satanic icon will be a recurring event, and we encourage Satanists everywhere to make pilgrimages to Bladensburg. Outside of Salem, MA, we expect Bladensburg will become known internationally as a destination for Satanists.”

About The Satanic Temple
The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.

China Horror As Military Harvests DNA From Millions Of Women To ‘Engineer New Viruses’

Gordon Chang warns next disease could be far more deadly than COVID-19

The Peoples Republic of China (PRC) has been collecting people’s DNA for years, and according to Gordon Chang, author of ‘The Coming Collapse of China,’ the country’s sinister motivations should be of great concern to the United States.

With over 80 million health profiles, China has the largest DNA database in the world, and growing. In an interview with Fox News, Chang warned that China plans to use this information to create bioweapons designed to target specific ethnic groups.

“The coronavirus is not the last pathogen that will be generated from Chinese soil. And so we’ve got to be concerned that the next disease is more transmissible and more deadly than the novel coronavirus,” said Chang.

China reportedly collects the DNA of its own citizens for purposes of law enforcement, tracking down dissidents, and forming a tightly controlled surveillance state.

They have also found ways to obtain the DNA of foreigners, including Americans.  

How exactly do they get this sensitive information?

“Buying American companies which have DNA profiles, subsidizing DNA analysis for ancestry companies, and hacking,” said Chang.

For example, in 2015 it was discovered that the PRC hacked Anthem, the second-largest insurance company in the U.S. Now the PRC is using the coronavirus to enlarge its DNA database by requiring internationally accepted QR codes for travel in and out of the country and using vaccine diplomacy.

“What they’re doing is they are saying: ‘We’ll get this vaccine to you but we need to complete our trials so we’re going to use your population as the test. If you don’t participate in these trials, you’re not getting the Chinese vaccines,’” said Chang.

He continued, “Beijing is trying to extend its influence by making its vaccine available.” While, at the same time, “collecting very sensitive information about people outside China.”

China currently has five coronavirus vaccine candidates that have reached phase 3 clinical trials.  The final phase of trials has been rolled out in at least 16 countries including BrazilTurkeyMorocco, and UAE.

China’s reasons for wanting this information involve dominating the biotechnology industry which “is very important to them,” said Chang.

“They included it in their ‘Made in China 2025’ initiative, he pointed out, “which is a decade long program to dominate certain industries.”

The second reason is something much more sinister, “China is probably trying to develop diseases that target not just everybody, but target only certain ethnic or racial groups.”

According to Chang, genetic data gives China the ability to create bioweapons that can target certain groups of people. Furthermore, he said the country’s behavior of collecting the DNA of foreigners while prohibiting Chinese DNA to foreign researchers supports this theory.

“We’ve got to be extremely concerned because that is not consistent with a country that wants to cooperate with the rest of the world. That is consistent with a country developing biological weapons,” he warned.  

“People have said biological weapons don’t work. Well, we do know they work because we had the coronavirus, which may or may not have been a biological weapon,” Chang clarified, “but we do know that it crippled the United States and that’s what Beijing is really looking for.”

Now that China has had proof of concept, Chang urged the United States to act swiftly and prevent the superpower from obtaining any more American DNA.

“We should not allow any Chinese or Chinese affiliated organization to test DNA of Americans. And we’ve got to say to China, either you agree to an inspections regime or we’re pulling out of the biological weapons convention.”

China has denied allegations that the coronavirus pandemic, which some believe emerged from a government lab in Wuhan, was a biological weapon. In 1984 the PRC signed the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC) treaty in 1984 which prohibits them from developing, producing or stockpiling biological or toxin weapons.

Cops Beat Black Man With Handcuffs Like ‘Brass Knuckles’ and Pulled Down His Pants

One officer has been fired and is facing 99 years in prison.

When Aundre Howard, a Black man, fled from Houston police during a traffic stop in 2019, one of the officers was caught on body camera footage telling his partner to “shoot his ass” as they pursued. When that officer finally caught up to Howard, he used a pair of handcuffs wrapped around his left hand like a pair of brass knuckles to repeatedly punch the fleeing man in the back of the head.

Now, the former police officer is facing prison time.

Lucas Vieira, 31, a four-year-veteran with the Houston Police Department, was indicted by a Harris County District Court grand jury on July 9. Two days later, the Houston Police Department announced that it had fired Vieira months ago, in April. If convicted, he faces up to 99 years in prison as well as a $10,000 fine.

The indictment also comes just over three months after Howard, 34, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit accusing Vieira of unjustly striking him and of violating his right to unjust search and due process.

“Mr. Howard suffered great pain, contusions, humiliation, anxiety, fear, loss of sleep, headaches, and other mental anguish as a result of the defendant’s actions,” according to the lawsuit, which was provided to VICE News by Howard’s attorney, Randall Kallinen. 

“My client is very pleased that the officer was indicted because it validates what he’s been concerned about for a while,” Kallinen told VICE News. “He does feel better that when officers injure people like himself, they do have to face justice just like anybody else would.”

The encounter with police occurred July 7, 2019, when Vieira initiated a stop on Howard’s vehicle for a traffic violation. According to Vieira’s attorney James Siscoe, police noticed marijuana on Howard’s center console when they first approached the car during the traffic stop, prompting a search. Police placed Howard in handcuffs, but they found nothing. As Officer Serrano began to put on rubber gloves for a cavity search, Howard began to run from police toward a nearby freeway, according to the lawsuit.

As he pursued, Vieira screamed out “just fucking shoot his ass, shoot his ass,” and belts out gun shots noises, according to police body camera footage.

The chase only lasted one city block before Vieria caught up with Howard, who’d pooped his pants he was so afraid, according to the lawsuit. The officer then allegedly used his handcuffs as “brass knuckles” and bashed Howard in the back of the head at least three times. Howard, who says he fled in fear of his life, can be heard telling officers “alright, you got it!” as Vieira throws the punches, according to body camera footage. 

Siscoe says his client only hit Howard in the shoulder and that only one of the hits managed to strike the man in the head. He also says that Serrano found 18 grams of cocaine immediately next to where officers caught up with Howard.

When Howard was brought back to the vehicle, the officers on the scene—Vieira’s partner Thomas Serrano and officer Nadeem Aslam, who are also named in the lawsuit— pulled down his pants, exposing his buttocks and genitalia to passersby and made fun of him as he lay there covered in feces.

The lawsuit also alleges that the officers pushed his arms over his head from behind as a pain technique as he lay there handcuffed and defenseless.

“Despite knowing about Vieira’s and other HPD officer’s policy violations, no officer reported any other officer nor was an [Internal Affairs Division] complaint filed by any officer,” the lawsuit alleges.

Howard was initially charged with felony evading arrest and possession of cocaine, but those charges were dropped, according to Houston Public Media.

Vieira’s attorney, James Siscoe, says that his client was unjustly indicted. Not only was he not allowed to present evidence to the grand jury, Vieira’s superiors reviewed the available bodycam footage at the time and concluded that his actions were justified.

“By taking immediate and decisive action in response to Howard’s reckless and dangerous actions, Lucas and his partner probably saved both Howard’s life and possibly that of other motorists on the freeway,” Siscoe said.

Howard’s lawsuit also lists Sgt. Earl Attebury, who arrived after Howard was back in police custody and didn’t reprimand Vieira after he allegedly admitted to using force, as well as former chief of police Art Acevedo, and the city of Houston. 

Howard is seeking damages for the pain, suffering and mental anguish he experienced as a result of this encounter, according to the lawsuit. He also says that the defendants are liable for punitive damages as well as his attorney fees relating to the case.
