R&B singer R. Kelly is holding at least five women as part of a sex “cult,” according to parents and some former members of his inner circle.

According to three former crew members and the parents of one 21-year-old woman, who was lured by Kelly’s promise to promote her singing career, the singer keeps the women at his homes in Atlanta and Chicago, where he controls all aspects of their lives, reported Buzzfeed.

“R. Kelly is the sweetest person you will ever want to meet,” said Asante McGee, a former member of his inner circle. “But Robert is the devil.”

Kelly takes the woman’s cell phones, requires them to call him “daddy,” films their sexual encounters with him and shows the videos to friends, physically and verbally punishes them for minor infractions and restricts their contact with family members, according to the report.

‘Vatican police have broken up a gay orgy at the home of the secretary to one of Pope Francis’s key advisers, it has been reported.

The flat belonged to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is in charge of tackling clerical sexual abuse.

When police showed up, they found drugs and a group of men engaged in sexual activity, local reports state.

Reports in Italy claim the occupant of the apartment is allegedly the secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio – a key aide to the 80-year-old Pope.

Coccopalmerio heads the Pontifical Council for Legislative texts and was said to have once recommended his secretary for a promotion to bishop.’

‘The US city of Chicago has celebrated a bloody Fourth of July weekend, with gunmen shooting at least 66 people, 8 of them fatally.

Gang crime and gun violence plagued most parts of the South and West sides from Friday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon, according to data kept by the Tribune.

Only on Tuesday, at least 1 person was shot killed and 6 others were wounded, authorities said.

At about 5:15 pm, a 21-year-old man was fatally shot in his car by a passing gunman. He “was parked in a vehicle was not the intended target,” according to information police provided.

This comes as the Chicago Police Department took on about 1,300 police officers to work each day since Friday to patrol those neighborhoods and other areas where violence is high.’

Corporate media achieved a new level of absurdity last week, when Jesse Ball, writing for the Los Angeles Times, suggested every American be required to spend a stint behind bars every ten years as a veritable guarantee to improve conditions of incarceration in the United States.

In the piece titled, “Everyone should go to jail, say, once every ten years,” Ball writes,

A notable demand that is made upon the citizens of the United States of America is that of jury duty. Although many despise, hate and avoid it, there is a general sense that the task is necessary. We believe a society is only just if everyone shares in the apportionment of guilt.

To this demand of jury duty, I would like to add another, and in the same spirit. I propose that all citizens of the United States of America should serve a brief sentence of incarceration in our maximum-security penitentiaries. This service, which would occur for each person once in a decade, would help ensure that the quality of life within our prisons is sufficient for the keeping of human beings.

According to police, the arrests included some “major Hollywood players” as well as politicians, white-collar professionals, a monk, and other high-ranking clergy members.

The raids were conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children task force, working directly with the Justice Department.

Codenamed “Operation Broken Heart III”, the sweeping raids targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police stated that they are unable to release any names at this point, but confirmed that the arrested included some “household names” in the entertainment industry.’

  • Police have been investigating Nick Gordon since the 2015 death of his fiancée Bobbi Kristina Brown, with whom he shared an Alpharetta, Georgia, home
  • No charges have been brought although he was found civilly liable after a lawsuit brought against him 
  • Now DailyMail.com can disclose that two women have told police about allegations of domestic abuse at his hands
  • One is Laura Leal, 26, who told DailyMail.com she feared Gordon, 28, would kill them as he attacked her in a bedroom at his mother’s Sanford, Florida home
  • The other woman’s identity is not being revealed but she has told detectives about abuse at his hands
  • ‘When she heard about what happened to Laura Leal she felt physically sick and knew it was time to finally come forward,’ source tells DailyMail.com 

Prosecutors are close to charging Nick Gordon over the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown after identifying two ex-girlfriends who can testify that he was a serial domestic abuser.

Gordon, 28, was held legally responsible for the 2015 death of Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston’s daughter, in a civil case but has never faced criminal proceedings.

However DailyMail.com understands that investigators are ‘increasingly confident’ of bringing charges after identifying further ‘victims’ who can give accounts of his erratic, violent behavior.

They sought help from the first, 26-year-old Laura Leal, after Gordon was arrested earlier this month for allegedly holding her captive at his mother’s Florida home and beating her.

Lots of smoke. Not much light.

I am looking in vain – perhaps I’m not looking
hard enough – for the following items:

# 1. A still or video image of the guy who was
doing the shooting actually DOING the shooting

– No video surveillance in Alexandria, VA at a
park where Congressmen play ball? Really?

# 2. A picture of his “arsenal” and his famous
gym bag

– The media doesn’t do that kind of reporting
any more all of a sudden? No one is asking?
Holding up the shooters weapons and
demonizing them?

# 3. Surveillance footage of him walking to
the park with his bag

– By the way, how big what that bag? Ever
try to put a rifle in a normal gym bag?

None of these things exist – as far as
the news media is concerned.

What have we really got here?

1. Some people were shot

2. A very shaky phone video showing a whole
lot of nothing

3. Eye witness accounts that not only didn’t
see the shooter, but couldn’t even tell
where the shots were coming from.

4. A dead guy – a loner – presumably with some
guns at  his feet…and a humongous gym bag.

The only uninjured cop on the scene – the
one credited with killing the shooter – was not
named in early press reports.

Lots of media background is being shared on
the two cops who were shot early in the action.

Nothing, so far, about the guy who actually saved
the day.

His shot…was not an impossible shot…but hitting
someone with a pistol in an adrenaline filled
combat situation at over 100 feet puts him in
the top 1% of handgun operators.

In a country where a presidential
candidate (RFK) can be shot in the
back of the head at close range by
someone 10 feet IN FRONT OF HIM
– and no one saw anything – does
it add up to you?

Are you hearing common sense questions
like this anywhere else?

But wait, there’s more:

In a country where cops routinely arrest people
for sleeping in their car…

How long do you think you’d be allowed to live
in a van by a ball field where Congressmen gather
frequently while constantly drawing attention to
yourself as an odd and publicly disgruntled guy?

The answer: In Alexandria, VA – for months.

Something is not right with this story

  • Carra Crouch, now 24, was awarded $2million in damages on Monday
  • She is the granddaughter of Trinity Broadcasting founders Jan and Paul Crouch
  • Carra filed a lawsuit five years ago claiming she was assaulted when she was 13 by a 30-year-old Trinity employee in an Atlanta hotel room in 2006
  • She claims when she reported it to her grandmother Jan, the employee was fired and the assault kept quiet 
  • Carra filed the lawsuit before Jan and Paul died in 2016 and 2013 respectively

Jan and her husband Paul made millions through their pioneering religious shows on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Their granddaughter says she was attacked by someone who worked for the company but that neither did anything because they didn't want the bad press

Jan and her husband Paul made millions through their pioneering religious shows on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Their granddaughter says she was attacked by someone who worked for the company but that neither did anything because they didn’t want the bad press

Trinity attorney Michael King said after the verdict that the organization disagrees with the ruling and plans to appeal.

Paul and Jan Crouch both died since the lawsuit was filed five years ago. They denied the allegations when the lawsuit was first filed.

Both sides agree that during Trinity Broadcasting’s 2006 ‘Praise-a-Thon’ fundraiser, Carra and the man smoked a cigarette together, drank alcohol together, and watched a movie on a bed in her room.

But Carra and her attorneys allege the man fondled her, tried to kiss her, and gave her a glass of water that she believed was laced with a drug. She suspected she had been raped when she awoke.

The lawsuit stated that when Carra reported the incident to her grandmother back in California, Jan berated her and screamed ‘it’s your fault’.

The lawsuit said that as an ordained minister, Jan was required to report potential sexual abuse to authorities.

‘In the year 1940 Hubert Brasier, then 23, had a decision to make. As a man of his age in the early years of WW2 he was probably heading to fight the Nazi Wehrmacht, or heading to defend British colonial outposts. Hubert Brasier felt his only path was that of the Anglican-Catholic Church, and he joined the priests at the Community of the Resurrection Seminary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. In years to come the Community of the Resurrection would become known for the systematic sexual abuse of children at the seminary by the Italian Verona brothers, who were rampant sex offenders in the 1960’s and 1970’s. However the seminary in Mirfield in the early 1940’s was just about to start welcoming its first refugee children. In December 1941 mass bombing of Sheffield and other northern industrial towns meant many children were evacuated to the countryside. The residents of Mirfield were some of the first to support the war effort and receive evacuee.’

This article reviews the “mysterious” phenomenon of IDs and Passports of terror suspects routinely discovered (often in the rubble) in the wake of a terrorist attack.

In most cases the alleged suspect was known to the authorities.

Is there a pattern?  The ID papers of the suspect are often left behind, discovered by police in the wake of a terrorist attack.

According to government and media reports, the suspects are without exception linked to an Al Qaeda affiliated entity.   

None of these terror suspects survived. Dead men do not talk. 

In the case of the tragic events in Manchester, the bankcard of the alleged suicide bomber Salman Abedi was found in his pocket in the wake of the explosion.
