US diplomat, 45, faces life in prison after pleading guilty to raping and drugging TWENTY THREE women over 14 years while stationed at U.S. Embassy in Mexico City

A former U.S. diplomat may face life in prison, after pleading guilty to raping and drugging 23 women over the course of several years, while he was employed at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.

Brian Jeffrey Raymond, 45, of La Mesa, California, pleaded guilty Friday to federal sexual abuse and transportation of obscene material charges, according to the Department of Justice. 

An investigation into Raymond was launched after a nude woman was spotted screaming for help on the balcony of his Mexico City apartment last May. 

The woman told the FBI she had no recollection of events after consuming drinks and food provided by Raymond.  

He was arrested in La Mesa last October, on one count of coercion and enticement.

‘Brian Raymond betrayed the trust granted to him as a U.S. government employee representing the United States abroad by engaging in years of predatory conduct sexually abusing, exploiting, and recording vulnerable women he targeted in the United States and around the world,’ Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, said in a statement.

Alleged Serial Rapist Cop Used Dating Apps to Find Victims, Drug Them, & Violently Rape Them

When women saw his profile on dating apps, they likely felt comfort knowing the blind date they were about to attend was with a cop. However, that Birmingham Alabama Police Department officer was accused last week of rape. Following a complaint submitted to the police department an investigation was initiated which involved Birmingham Police Department’s Tactical Operations Precinct, its Special Victim’s Unit, and investigators inside the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. According to the evidence, it appears that officer Matthew Wilcox was a serial rapist.

A search warrant was obtained for Wilcox’ home which uncovered a cache of weapons and drugs. Wilcox, 37, was subsequently arrested and charged with 1st Degree rape, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Wilcox was transported to the Jefferson County Jail and later released when the officer, who was promptly relieved of his duties, posted bail in the amount of $26,000. Wilcox has been a member of the police department since 2019 and was assigned to patrol units.

Wilcox was allowed to resign from the Birmingham Police Department on Tuesday. Prior to joining the force in 2019, Wilcox served 9 years as a police officer with the University of Alabama Birmingham. Birmingham Police Department Chief Patrick Smith held a press conference and, one could conclude, was visibly shaken at the charges one of his officers was an alleged rapist. In a press conference held this week, Smith revealed some of the details of the investigation as well as his concerns Wilcox may have more victims who have not yet come forward.

Surprise!? Womens’ Rights Group Urge Newsom To End Prison Transgender-Mixing After Numerous Attacks, Rapes

File this under “another liberal experiment blows up that every rational thinking human could have seen coming”…

On January 1, a law went into effect in California (foreshadowing Democrats’ “Equality Act” bill – requiring people to be treated according to their gender identity, not biological sex), holding that state prisoners must be housed in a facility consistent with their gender identity, regardless of their anatomy.

Six months later and guess what has occurred…

There has been numerous complaints of assaulted, abused, and traumatized women at the hands of male inmates transferred into their prisons.

And one group of traditionally progressive activists – the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) – has sent a letter to Goverror Gavin Newsom, accusing the state of violating the constitutional rights of incarcerated women by allowing men into their living quarters to “prey on women.”

WoLF Legal Director Lauren Adams said:

We are working with a woman who was punched in the face so hard by a new transfer that she couldn’t chew for three days. He was taken away and released back in a different yard with no restrictions,” Adams said.

“He was her cellmate. She had to sleep with him.”

Other women have been sexually abused in the past and must now contend with nude men sharing communal showers, Adams said.

“One woman went in there with two naked men showering who still had penises,” Adams added.

“It was incredibly traumatic and scary, to know for, [possibly], the rest of their lives they are going to be subjected to this.”

Yahoo News reports that the state currently has 273 transfer requests; 266 are from people housed at male institutions requesting to be transferred to a female institution, and seven are from people at female institutions requesting to be transferred to a male institution, according to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Currently, 24 male prisoners have been transferred to female institutions.

California’s Latest Gender Identity Law Is Producing Predictable Consequences

A California state law passed last year and implemented on January 1, 2021 allows men to be housed at prisons with women. All they have to do is identify as a woman and they’re in. No questions or judgement allowed. 

Sane people knew the law would have negative effects on women in California’s prisons by putting them at risk for assault and abuse. Now, six months into the practice the results have been horrific. Worse, they were completely predictable. From Yahoo News

A California law allowing transgender inmates to pick the prison gender of their choice has come under fire from a women’s rights group citing abuse of females by men.

In a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Women’s Liberation Front accused the state of violating the constitutional rights of incarcerated women by allowing men into their living quarters to “prey on women.” Since the law took effect on Jan. 1, WLF has received numerous complaints of assaulted, abused, and traumatized women at the hands of male inmates transferred into their prisons, WoLF Legal Director Lauren Adams said.

“We are working with a woman who was punched in the face so hard by a new transfer that she couldn’t chew for three days. He was taken away and released back in a different yard with no restrictions,” Adams said. “He was her cellmate. She had to sleep with him.”

Other women have been sexually abused in the past and must now contend with nude men sharing communal showers, Adams said.

“One woman went in there with two naked men showering who still had penises,” Adams added. “It was incredibly traumatic and scary, to know for, [possibly], the rest of their lives they are going to be subjected to this.”

But prisons aren’t the only places women are being forced to allow men into their personal and intimate spaces. Shelters for battered women are also under attack and transgender activists continue to demand men be allowed to sleep in the same quarters as abused women. Democrats in Washington D.C. want to cement these policies on a federal level through the Equality Act.

Man Radicalized by ‘Asian Hate Crime’ Media Propaganda Attacks Asian Woman He Mistakenly Thought Was White

A man who was radicalized by inaccurate media propaganda concerning a supposed wave of hate crimes targeting Asians blamed on white supremacy tried to take revenge by sexually assaulting a woman at gunpoint because he presumed she was white.

37-year-old Michael Sangbong Rhee was arrested by police in Lake Forest, California after he allegedly attacked a woman, who turned out to be Asian, “in retaliation for the rise in hate crimes against Asian people.”

“Irvine police say an Asian woman was sitting in the driver’s seat of her car near her apartment Thursday afternoon when she looked up to see Rhee standing at the door, holding a handgun. She told police she did not recognize Rhee, who ordered her to get into the back of her car if she wanted to live,” reports CBS Los Angeles.

“The woman said she offered Rhee her wallet and money, and he replied they would “do that later,” before getting into her car through the passenger side door and pushed her into the backseat, according to police. She struggled with Rhee, who she told police began to grope her, then yelled to a maintenance worker nearby that he had a gun.”

Court Rules It’s Not Rape If Woman Gets Voluntarily Drunk Before Sex Assault Happens

In one of the most ridiculous, yet atrocious decisions by a court we’ve ever seen, the Minnesota Supreme Court threw out a rape conviction this month because the woman who was raped had voluntarily consumed alcohol prior to being raped. This case paves the way for legal rape so long as a woman voluntarily consumes alcohol or drugs with her rapist before the assault occurs.

The court’s unanimous 6-0 decision is plain and simple —  “a person can’t be found guilty of sexually assaulting someone, who is mentally incapacitated due to intoxication, if that person became intoxicated by voluntarily ingesting drugs or alcohol.”

Read that again if you need to, it is true.

The court’s decision stems from the case of Francois Monulu Khalil. Khalil was convicted of rape and sentenced to prison in 2019 but challenged his case all the way to the state’s highest court.

According to the details of the case, Khalil met his victim in 2017 when she was just 20. The two went on a date and the bouncer denied her entry into the bar because he deemed her too intoxicated. Khalil and another man then invited her back to “a party” that turned out to be non-existent.

The victim testified that she blacked out and woke up on the couch to find Khalil raping her. She told him to stop but Khalil refused, telling her, “But you’re so hot and you turn me on.”

Khalil has been in jail since 2019, but thanks to a highly controversial state law and the court’s ridiculous decision, he could soon be a free man.

The court overturned Khalil’s conviction because state law dictates that a person cannot be considered “mentally incapacitated” and incapable of consenting to sex if they are intoxicated on which were substances “administered to that person without the person’s agreement.” 

This law is not just in Minnesota either. According to The Washington Post, a majority of US states – 40 states, as of 2016 – have similar laws which treat intoxication as a barrier to consent only if victims became drunk against their will.

“Victims who are intoxicated to the degree that they are unable to give consent are entitled to justice. Minnesotans who experience unthinkable trauma deserve to see the Legislature take action on this immediately,” Democratic state representative Kelly Moller said, according to USA Today.

Biden AG Nominee Merrick Garland Wrote in 70s That Song About ‘Military Rape’ Was ‘Hilarious’

President Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as a college student at Harvard University wrote in a review of a musical that a song about rape was one of the play’s “hilarious group numbers.”

In a Harvard Crimson article published January 22, 1976, he wrote in a critique of the play (emphasis added):

A combination of factors, however, keep the vocal problems from becoming disastrous. Most important are the Jones-Schmidt songs themselves, simple and engaging melodies with a few tender ballads like “Try to Remember” and some hilarious group numbers like “it Depends on what You Pay,” which provides a shopping list of rapes for sale (e.g. “the military rape–it’s done with drums and a great brass band.”)

The play was “The Fantasticks,” performed by an all-freshmen cast. It is about a nearly 20-year-old college student and a 16-year-old girl, who are young lovers.

The article was submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee on January 26, 2020, as part of a questionnaire Garland filled out for consideration by the committee next week. Question 12 asks the nominee to list published writings — books, articles, reports, letters to the editor, etc. — and public statements.

The song about rape has come under public scrutiny in the past for its lyrics, which include:

We’ve the obvious open schoolboy rape,
With little mandolins and perhaps a cape.
The rape by coach; it’s little in request.
The rape by day, but the rape by night is best.

Just try to see it.
And you will soon agree, señors,
Why
Invite regret,
When you can get the sort of rape
You’ll never ever forget.

You can get the rape emphatic.
You can get the rape polite.
You can get the rape with Indians:
A very charming sight.
You can get the rape on horseback;
They’ll all say it’s new and gay.
So you see the sort of rape
Depends on what you pay.
It depends on what you
Pay.

The song’s lyricist, Tom Jones, made changes to the song in 2006 when the play was revived in 2006.

“For years I didn’t think and then gradually it began to seep into my consciousness. My consciousness was raised. I really began to think, you know, rape isn’t funny,” Jones told NPR in 2006. The word “rape” was later changed to “abduction.”
