EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MESSAGE – NOVEMBER 2023
This is Thanksgiving week. For many of us, there is much to be grateful for, but for far too many, especially children, the week will pass without the warmth of family surrounding them with kindness and love. These are the precious lives that need our help and prayers. During this holiday season, turn toward the light and commit to raising your awareness of the tragic reality of child exploitation and trafficking and learning what you can do to end the crisis. America’s Future is in this fight, and through our Get In The Fight campaigns, you can join us on the frontline in your communities. The articles in this edition of the PDPC Bulletin will further your knowledge base of why this fight for our children – who hold the promise of our nation – is so vitally important. We wish you and your families a blessed Thanksgiving Day – Mary O’Neill.
Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn is pushing for the Senate Judiciary Committee to issue a subpoena for convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs to identify potential clients and co-conspirators. Will the public finally get accountability for Epstein’s elite pedophile ring, or will the elite regime continue to protect its own?
On Nov. 9, Blackburn told the committee during a hearing, where Democrats were looking into subpoenas related to a Supreme Court ethics probe, that she filed a subpoena for Epstein’s estate to obtain all the flight logs from his private plane. His jet, dubbed the Lolita Express, often took trips to his private island Little St. James in the Virgin Islands, where young women have testified they were raped and trafficked.
“Since we are in the business of issuing subpoenas now, here are a few more that I filed,” Blackburn said at the hearing. “A subpoena to Jeffrey Epstein’s estate to provide the flight logs to his private plane. Given the numerous allegations of human trafficking and sexual abuse surrounding Mr. Epstein, I think it’s very important that we identify everybody that was on that plane. And how many trips they took on that plane and the destination in which they arrived.”
Blackburn slammed Democrats on the committee for targeting Supreme Court justices when they should be looking into “real issues.” Blackburn also called for a subpoena to look into Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to explain how he lost track of 85,000 unaccompanied children.
“I’ve also filed a subpoena authorization for Secretary Xavier Becerra to come before this Committee and explain to us how he lost track of 85,000 unaccompanied children,” Blackburn said.
After Blackburn resisted authorization for Supreme Court subpoenas, Chairman Dick Durbin, D-Ill., shut down the hearing, and no subpoenas were voted on. However, a spokesperson for Blackburn told Fox News Digital that the senator would push for the Epstein subpoena again at another committee hearing.
The now-defunct news site Gawker released some of Epstein’s flight logs in 2015, revealing many high-profile elites were on his private jet, including former President Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Naomi Campbell. Those flight logs showed Clinton took more than a dozen flights on Epstein’s plane.
Despite Blackburn’s efforts, questions arise as to why members of Congress are resistant to disclosing Epstein’s flight logs. If they have nothing to hide, there should be no reason why they wouldn’t want to expose those involved in crimes against children.
Washington D.C. makes for strange bedfellows and two unlikely members of Congress from opposite ends of the aisle have united to stop the prosecution of Julian Assange. The U.S. Department of Justice’s charges against Assange have set a dangerous precedent for all journalists, and it must be stopped to secure freedom of the press in this country.
MAGA conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and left-wing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., were two of 16 members of the U.S. Congress who signed a letter dated Nov. 8, 2023 to President Joe Biden pleading for him to drop the extradition and prosecution of the Wikileaks founder.
“As members of Congress deeply committed to the principles of free speech and freedom of the press, we write to strongly encourage your Administration to withdraw the U.S. extradition request currently pending against Australian publisher Julian Assange and halt all prosecutorial proceedings against him as soon as possible,” the letter read.
The group of lawmakers also includes Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Rep. Eric Burlison (R-Mo.), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Rep, Matt Rosendale (R-Mont.), Rep. Greg Casar (D-Texas), Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), Rep. Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
A letter was also sent by Tlaib, Pressley, Bowman, Ocasio-Cortez, Caser, and Omar in April urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to drop the charges against Assange. Assange was arrested in the United Kingdom in 2019 on a U.S. warrant and has fought British court in an attempt to avoid extradition to the U.S. to face charges.
“Press freedom, civil liberty, and human rights groups have been emphatic that the charges against Mr. Assange pose a grave and unprecedented threat to everyday, constitutionally protected journalistic activity, and that a conviction would represent a landmark setback for the First Amendment,” the April letter stated.
In May, Executive Director of Freedom Press, Trevor Trimm, wrote a letter in The Guardian stating: “If you care about press freedom, make some noise about Julian Assange,” Trimm wrote. “The U.S. Justice Department has acted appallingly in the Assange case. If he can be prosecuted, so can journalists everywhere.”
Trimm wrote there are several facts that are important to understand about Assange’s case whether you like him or not, and he noted the charges have nothing to do with “Trump v. Clinton…Russia or the 2016 election.”
“The crux of the case stems from the State Department cables and Iraq and Afghanistan war logs that whistleblower Chelsea Manning gave to Wikileaks in 2010 and were subsequently shared with news outlets around the world, including The Guardian,” Trimm wrote.
Trimm insists that the DOJ pretends the case is only about hacking and not journalism, but Trimm claims that’s a lie. “Seventeen of the 18 charges against Julian Assange are under the Espionage Act, and have nothing to do with hacking,” he wrote.
Trimm wrote Assange received classified documents from a source inside the U.S. military and published the documents, which he highlighted is something national security reporters in mainstream media outlets do every day.
In 2016, Wikileaks, under Assange’s leadership, released the DNC emails and the Podesta emails, which exposed potential crimes against children via Clinton associates since their emails were littered with known pedophile code words among many other red flags. We never would’ve learned the truth about the vast elite pedophile rings and child sex trafficking networks if it was not for Julian Assange’s bravery.
The manifesto allegedly written by the trans Nashville Catholic school shooter was recently released, exposing the troubled individual had been radicalized by extreme left-wing ideology such as anti-white narratives and critical race theory indoctrination.
Unfortunately, this isn’t an isolated incident. There’s been an increase in violence and shootings by transexuals or young adults with gender confusion as schools, the media, and communities continue to aggressively push the trans agenda on impressionable and mentally unstable young people.
On March 27, police killed Audrey Hale, 28, after she shot up the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, where she had once attended, killing three children and three adults. The manifesto, believed to be written by Hale, exposed the shooter’s intention to murder “white-privileged” kids. Her writings were riddled with racial slurs and profane language such as: “wanna kill all you crackers” and “kill those kids!” Hale described the day as “Death Day.” “I hope the death count is high.”
The Nashville shooter is one of many shootings that have taken place by young individuals who struggled with gender identity. For example, the Aberdeen shooter, Snochia Moseley, 26, who shot six co-workers, killing three of them at a Rite Aid Corp facility in Aberdeen, Maryland, on Sept. 20, 2018, identified as trans. Moseley had struggled for years with mental illness and emotional distress due to his struggle with his sexual identity, according to authorities.
In May of 2020, Maya Alec McKinney, who identifies as transgender, was sentenced to life in prison after admitting to taking part in the shooting at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) School in Highlands Ranch in Colorado that left one student dead and eight others wounded.
The Colorado Springs shooter, Lee Aldrich, is accused of killing five people at an LGBT nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in November of 2022. Aldrich’s lawyers said Aldrich identifies as non-binary and prefers they/them pronouns, and was only 22 years old when the shooting took place.
The Highland Park, Illinois shooter, Robert Crimo III, the suspected gunman of a shooting that left seven people dead and 30 wounded at an Independence Day parade last year who was 21 years old at the time, dressed as a woman and wore a wig when the shooting took place, according to the U.S. Sun.
Shootings are extreme examples of radical trans individuals turning violent; however, members of the trans community are also posting disturbing videos threatening violence. Popular X account, Libs of TikTok, recently posted a video of a disturbed trans activist who wished death and torture on transphobic people, stating, “yes, I want to stab all of you to death.”
Mental instability has been a common theme with radical and violent trans individuals, and it’s no coincidence that children are increasingly exposed at an early age to woke teachers, gender ideology, and critical race theory at schools. The radical views that are taught are distorting reality for young, impressionable children.
“Kids who identify as trans are far more likely than their peers to be diagnosed with mental health challenges like anxiety and depression,” according to Do No Harm Research Director Ian Kingsbury. “The U.S. health establishment explains this as a phenomenon of ‘minority stress,’ alluding to the idea that depression and anxiety arise from dysphoria.”
An article in Psychology Today reports that gender confusion is on the rise, and some schools have started LGBT clubs aimed at young children. Drag Queen story hours and drag shows have become places where children are subjected to sexual acts and behaviors, including drag queens gyrating and twerking in front of rooms full of children and teachers.
Some sex offenders have been caught in these programs, including a former president of a drag queen story hour foundation. Brett Blomme, who headed Cream City Foundation, was arrested on seven counts of child porn in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 2021. Also, last year LGBTQ youth advisor and drag queen Brice Williams was charged with 25 counts of child porn.
Evidence of violent behavior by transgender individuals, as depicted in the examples above, is drawing greater public concern about allowing children to be exposed to drag shows, school policies that support gender neutral bathrooms, or those that ignore the rights of parents.

Three individuals were arrested earlier this month in connection with operating sophisticated high-end brothels in greater Boston and eastern Virginia that may be part of a Chinese espionage ring. However, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is withholding the names of the high-powered clients involved, at least for now. Will authorities ever release the names of these elite clients, or will they remain protected like Jeffrey Epstein’s clients have been for so long?
On Nov. 8, 2023, the DOJ announced that three defendants were charged with conspiracy to coerce and entice travel to engage in illegal sexual activity. Those individuals are Han “Hana” Lee, 41, of Cambridge, Mass; James Lee, 68, of Torrance, Calif, and Junmyung Lee, 30, of Dedham, Massachusetts.
“This commercial sex ring was built on secrecy and exclusivity, catering to a wealthy and well-connected clientele,” Acting U.S. Attorney Joshua Levy said at a news briefing. “And business was booming – until today.”
The big wig sex buyers allegedly included elected officials, high-tech and pharmaceutical executives, doctors, elected officials, military officers, government contractors that possess security clearances, professors, attorneys, scientists, and accountants, according to the DOJ. Although no charges have been filed for trafficking, most brothels use involuntary sex workers who were trafficked into the business.
“Pick a profession and they are probably represented in this case,” Levy said. “They are the men who fuel this commercial sex ring. The government alleges that there are potentially hundreds of individuals who took these services as commercial sex buyers.”
Days after this news broke, investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported that investigators suspect the prostitution ring may have been part of a Chinese espionage plot targeting high-tech government contracting centers like Cambridge and Tysons Corner.
Levy said that although the buyers are not charged or named in the affidavit, he emphasized that the investigation is “just getting going” and it’s still in the early stages.
Since some of these clients are elected officials and government employees, including some with security clearances, this sparks major national security concerns and the public should demand answers.
Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., told the Daily Mail he’s incredibly concerned about a breach in national security through this brothel network.
“As a member of Intel and Armed Services committees, these reports make me incredibly concerned about the security clearance process when our adversaries have a long history of using sex to gather secrets,” Waltz said.
As shocking as these revelations are, this is not the first time the U.S. government and elected officials have been compromised via foreign intelligence agents or espionage rings.
Congress has been infiltrated by Chinese and other foreign spies attempting to get access to classified information in recent years. Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell was tied to a suspected Chinese spy, Christine Fang, known as “Fang Fang,” which sparked an Ethics Committee investigation into his conduct. Fang reportedly slept with two unnamed U.S. mayors as part of a years-long intelligence campaign. Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy kicked Swalwell off the House Intelligence Committee earlier this year due to his relationship with Fang.
An ex-aide to former Sen. Diane Feinstein who worked as her driver in California for 20 years, was reportedly a Chinese spy. The spy is said to have attended Chinese consulate functions for the Senator, who died on September 29, 2023. What makes this extra alarming is that Feinstein was the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time.
In 2018, Imran Awan, who was a congressional IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was fired just after he was arrested trying to flee to Pakistan. Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged with bank fraud. Adam was also reportedly involved in the theft of congressional equipment, massive data breaches of Congress members’ emails, likely espionage, and more. This case involved data from 40 or more Democratic members of Congress.
In 2019, it was reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar had been accused of being a paid agent of the government of Qatar and used her position in Congress to access sensitive information for the benefit of Iran, according to testimony in a civil suit in Florida.
Congress and the U.S. government have a major foreign espionage infiltration problem, and the high-end brothel potentially linked to Chinese espionage is just the latest proof. The public should pressure their elected officials and the DOJ for answers. Every name on that client list – whether they’re government workers or not – must be exposed.
STAY INFORMED: Slade Sohmer, 44, who was editor-in-chief of the leftist news outlet, The Recount, was arrested last week and charged in Massachusetts court with possessing and disseminating “hundreds of child pornography images and videos” including one child porn video he produced himself. Investigators found messages on Sohmer’s Telegram that included discussions on how to lure, kidnap and rape children, according to NBC Boston. Prosecutors said the investigation into the disgraced editor is ongoing, with more charges anticipated. Notably, The Recount has falsely reported that Pizzagate has been debunked. Furthermore, Sohmer was friendly with John Podesta who is at the center of Pizzagate. Learn more here.
