Owners of Missouri girls’ home charged with more than 100 felonies including child abuse, statutory rape

The owners of a now-defunct girls’ home in Missouri have been charged by the state’s attorney general with more than 100 felonies collectively — including sexual abuse and statutory rape — after 16 alleged victims came forward with purportedly corroborated claims.

What are the details?

Attorney General Eric Schmitt (R) announced the charges against married couple Boyd and Stephanie Householder, who founded Circle of Hope Girls Ranch in 2006 as a Christian reform school for troubled teens.

NBC News reported:

Court records show Boyd Householder, 71, faces 79 felony counts and one misdemeanor, including charges for child molestation, sodomy, sexual contact with a student and neglect of a child. Stephanie Householder, 55, faces 22 felony charges for abuse or neglect of a child, and endangering the welfare of a child. The alleged incidents occurred from 2017 to 2020.

According to KRCG-TV, the allegations outlined in court documents accuse Boyd Householder of “repeated statutory sodomy,” “multiple incidents” where he had sexual intercourse with a victim under the age of 17, slamming victims’ heads into walls, beating girls with his hands or with a belt, and instructing several girls on the best way to kill themselves.

“There are no words I can say today to describe the mix of great sadness, horror, disgust and sympathy that I feel about these reports of cruel and almost unbelievable reports of abuse and neglect,” Schmitt said during a news conference.

He added, “We believe this to be one of the most widespread cases of sexual, physical and mental abuse we’ve had against young girls and women in Missouri’s history.”

Schmitt’s office took on the case in November, after the Cedar County Prosecutor’s Office asked for assistance.

Boyd and Stephanie Householder are being held at the Vernon County Jail.

Girls’ home had been reported at least 19 times

NBC News reported “since the boarding school opened, concerned parents, staff members and others had reported Circle of Hope at least 19 times to three sheriff’s departments, state child welfare and education officials, the highway patrol, and the state attorney general’s office.”

The outlet did not cite the dates of when the prior complaints were filed, but noted that “the wave of state action began after the Householders’ daughter, Amanda, and women who attended Circle of Hope as teenagers started to post videos on TikTok last spring alleging abuse at the ranch. The videos prompted the Cedar County Sheriff’s Office to investigate, the office confirmed.”

“This is a moment that does deserve to be celebrated,” Amanda said of her parents’ arrests in a TikTok video on Wednesday. “I am sad because they are my parents, but something my parents would always tell me is, ‘You made your bed, now you have to lie in it.’ Well, my parents made their bed and now they’re going to have to lie in it. As hard as that is for me, it’s about time.”

Gov. Kristi Noem says South Dakota celebrating International Women’s Day with bill banning biological males from girls’ sports

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem joined in Monday on a social media frenzy to recognize International Women’s Day, sending the message that her state was celebrating the occasion by passing legislation that will protect women’s sports by prohibiting biological males from competing with girls.

What are the details?

Noem tweeted out, “In South Dakota, we’re celebrating #InternationalWomensDay by defending women’s sports! I’m excited to sign this bill very soon.”

The Republican governor linked to a message sent by the group American Principles, which proclaimed, “GREAT NEWS! The South Dakota Senate just passed the Women’s Fairness in Sports bill, 20-15. It now heads to @govkristinoem’s desk for signature.”

The Hill reported that the bill, once signed into law, will “legally prevent any student at a state institution from joining a sports team that does not match their at-birth biological identity.” The legislation would require “athletes in South Dakota state schools to provide information regarding their biological sex as well as their age and whether they are taking steroids.”

The American Civil Liberties Union in South Dakota is not happy about the legislation, issuing a statement that said the bill “is an attack on transgender women and girls that will cause them serious emotional and physical harm.”

“It prevents transgender women and girls from having the opportunity to play sports and have their personal dignity respected,” the statement added.

Debate continues on transgender athletes

Biological males competing in girls’ sports has sparked a fierce debate in recent years as transgender athletes have dominated biological females in competitions. The situation has caused particular controversy in high school sports, where girls’ athletic records and college scholarships are on the line.

President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling on U.S. schools to allow transgender athletes to compete in the gender category with which they identify, dismissing biological women’s civil rights protections under Title IX. When pressed on the issue, White House press secretary Jen Psaki recently explained that “the president’s belief is that trans rights are human rights,” Fox News reported.

But the White House and trans advocacy organizations have dismissed biological women’s civil rights in regard to the issue.

The ACLU, which purports to stand up for all those whose civil liberties are oppressed, is one of the groups that has selectively ignored biological female athletes’ civil liberties on the topic.

In the organization’s own tweet celebrating women on Monday, the ACLU tweeted, “On International Women’s Day, here’s your reminder that trans women are women.”

Black Lives Matter Breonna taylor Cheerleaders girls HARASSMENT Intelwars Louisville watch White privilege accusation

Black Lives Matter militants harass young girls for their ‘white privilege’ as they walk into cheerleading competition

Black Lives Matter militants harassed groups of young girls for their “white privilege” as they walked into a cheerleading competition in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday.

What happened?

As one group of cheerleaders crossed the street into the Kentucky International Convention Center, Carmen M. Jones spelled out a message for them as she spoke into a megaphone, WDRB-TV reported.

“The reason why you get to be here in these pretty little gorgeous outfits and your gorgeous hair and your gorgeous bows is because of your white privilege,” Jones said, according to the station. “Breonna [Taylor] is dead. Black mothers are burying their babies while white mothers send their daughters to cheer competitions.”

Here’s the clip:

Jones also appeared to command the cheerleaders to “do something black today with your white privilege.” WDRB also said protesters held signs and used chants with profanities as the children walked in and out of the building.

Another video shows what appears to be a protester holding a rifle as the group faces down a group of police officers in front of the convention center:

In the second video Jones can be heard on the megaphone hollering — apparently to cops — “We are not afraid of you! We are not intimidated by you!”

Then as another group of young girls headed into the cheerleading competition, Jones could be heard saying “they don’t give a f*** about y’all!” One of the protester’s signs read, “F*** the police.”

Here’s the clip. (Content warning: Profanity):

One dad isn’t happy

A father of cheerleaders told WDRB that protesters “were badgering them all the way in the door” and that his oldest daughter “cried for about an hour” after the interaction.

“You could see it affected all these kids,” the father told the station, only giving his first name — Rob — and not showing his face on camera during an interview.

Rob told WDRB that the protesters have a right to be there but should have left children out of it: “If there’s a problem within life, you keep it between adults. You don’t take kids and add them into the problems. It had nothing to do with them. Even if you have something that you’re passionate about. That wasn’t the way to go about it.”

The station said Louisville police made three arrests at the protest, and among the charges were disorderly conduct and obstructing a highway.

Black Lives Matter leader is unmoved

Jones told WDRB that she and fellow protesters stand by their words and methods: “Yes, I did tell them ‘Don’t be somebody that my child is going to have to fight.’ Because right now I’m fighting the grandchildren, the great-grandchildren of people’s ancestors who didn’t do right.”

She added to the station that “Breonna Taylor will never be able to have a child to be able to take to a cheer competition. If black kids are children enough, and child enough, and mature enough to go through the things that we go through as children, then their children are children enough, child enough. and mature enough to learn about their privilege.”

This Saturday will be the one-year anniversary of the death of Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman shot six times by Louisville police officers during a “no-knock” search warrant at her apartment. Officers returned fire after Taylor’s boyfriend fired his gun thinking he and Taylor were robbery targets. Police suspected Taylor’s apartment was being used to traffic drugs, but no drugs or money were found during the search. The incident ignited public outrage and protests around the country.

Abigail schrier Complaint girls Intelwars Irreversible damage Target Transgender agenda Transgender craze Twitter

Target blasted for removing book about ‘Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters’ after complaint that it spreads ‘transphobia’

Target is being blasted for removing a book — “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” by noted Wall Street Journal contributor Abigail Shrier — after a complaint on Twitter that the book is spreading “transphobia.”

What’s the background?

Shrier’s book was released in June, and the likes of
Joe Rogan, Ben Shapiro, and Dennis Prager have interviewed her about it.

As indicated in the title, the book isn’t about transgenderism generally but specifically about the impact it’s having on girls — “who had never experienced any discomfort in their biological sex until they heard a coming-out story from a speaker at a school assembly or discovered the internet community of trans ‘influencers,'” according to the book’s
description.

“Unsuspecting parents are awakening to find their daughters in thrall to hip trans YouTube stars and ‘gender-affirming’ educators and therapists who push life-changing interventions on young girls — including medically unnecessary double mastectomies and puberty blockers that can cause permanent infertility,” the description also says.

Here’s Shrier talking about “Irreversible Damage” with Prager:


Abigail Shrier: Transgenderism’s “IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE”

youtu.be

What was the complaint about the book?

Twitter user @BlueIris04 complained to Target that “Irreversible Damage” is guilty of “transphobia” and said the “trans community deserves a response” from Target as to why it’s selling the book.

Incidentally, @BlueIris04 uses “ACAB” — which stands for “all cops are bastards” — as well as the word “Ten” with an image of a skull for a Twitter handle. At some point @BlueIris04 blocked access to his or her tweets — but a screenshot of the complaint was saved:

Later @AskTarget replied to @BlueIris04 that “Irreversible Damage” was
removed from its “assortment” of books:

TheBlaze on Friday morning conducted a search on Target’s website for Shrier’s book, but it did not show up.

How are folks reacting to Target removing the book?

While some applauded Target’s removal of “Irreversible Damage,” other Twitter users weren’t so keen on the decision:

  • “So @AskTarget, opposite opinions, right or wrong, are not welcome in your stores because of hurt feelings?” one user wrote. “Thanks for contributing to the mental and emotional failure of upcoming generations. They need to learn that not everything or everyone revolves around their feelings.”
  • “Thanks for pandering to an a**hole who advocates for the murder of cops,” another user noted.
  • “They need to be held accountable for censoring what we are allowed to read,” another commenter said. “This is a good book.”
  • “I don’t feel safe at stores that allow a handful of activists to censor speech,” one user offered.
  • “So the left advocates censorship, anti-Semitism, violence against political opponents, universal health care, marking and blacklisting people and socialism… ..then call everyone ELSE a Nazi,” another commenter noted. “Stopped going to Target when they betrayed us with bathrooms.”

What did the book’s publisher have to say?

Regnery Publishing on Friday morning offered TheBlaze the following statement:

The “Woke, Inc.” trend is, sadly, only getting worse. The mob has sufficiently trained big corporations like Target to live in fear — so much so that it only took *one* complaint from a Twitter user to convince Target to pull a bestselling book from its website. But as Target and other cowardly corporations cower in fear of leftist mobs, Regnery has always and will continue to stand proudly behind powerful voices like Abigail Shrier and the tremendously important work she has done in researching and writing “Irreversible Damage.”

What did Target have to say?

Target on Friday morning didn’t immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment on the retailer’s rationale behind removing “Irreversible Damage” from its website.

attack Coronavirus Coronavirus america doctor girls Intelwars kentucky Louisville physician social distancing Stay at home Teens watch

Physician arrested, charged with strangulation after attack on teen girls. They said he was angry they were outside amid social distancing.

Police arrested a Kentucky physician and charged him with strangulation after an attack on teenage girls caught on video — and the girls told WLKY-TV the good doctor was angry they were outside amid social distancing guidelines put in place to quell the spread of the coronavirus.

What went down?

Three witnesses said the incident began when the attacker and a woman accompanying him confronted a group of nine teens who were watching the sunset at the Norton Commons Amphitheater, the Courier-Journal reported, adding that it’s an upper-class neighborhood.

One of the witnesses contacted the station Sunday saying the alleged attacker — identified as John Rademaker, a Louisville-area physician — and the woman cursed at the teens Friday evening for being outside while COVID-19 social distancing guidelines are in place.

Video of the incident shows Rademaker exchanging words with the girls, after which he points at “this asshole right here” — and then shoves at least two girls.

Then he bends over before kneeling down and appears to put his hands around the neck of a third girl, who was lying on the ground. The woman with him had her hands around the third girl’s leg.

Here’s the clip. (Content warning: Language):

WLKY said video it obtained showed the attack stopping after a young man ran up and told Rademaker to back off. The attacker and the woman left the scene immediately after, witnesses told the Courier-Journal.

Police told the station that the victim in the attack suffered minor injuries; the paper noted that she was checked at the scene by medical personnel and didn’t require hospitalization.

What happened to Rademaker?

Rademaker — a 57-year-old from Prospect — was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with first-degree strangulation and three counts of harassment with physical contact, the Courier-Journal reported, citing a Louisville Metro Police statement.

Rademaker was released from jail later Tuesday on a personal recognizance bond, the paper added, citing online court records.

The Courier-Journal noted that Rademaker didn’t have an attorney listed in online court records as of Wednesday morning, and a May 8 arraignment hearing is scheduled at Jefferson District Court.

Baptist Health officials told WLKY that Rademaker is with an anesthesia group Baptist Health contracts with, and he was put on administrative leave following the incident.

That group released the following statement Tuesday, the station said:

SIAC, a division of One Anesthesia PLLC is aware of the incident that occurred in Norton Commons with one of its physicians, who was not on official call or due to report to the hospital in any official capacity. With that said, the partners of SIAC, a division of One Anesthesia PLLC have decided to place the physician that appeared in the video on administrative leave as of April 5th pending further investigation. Our well wishes extend to all parties involved and we will continue to monitor this situation as new information develops.

What did police have to say?

“Obviously, we do not advise individuals concerned about social distancing to take matters into their own hands and confront people about it, especially in any physical way,” police said in a statement, WKLY noted. “We ask people who are concerned about large gatherings to call 311 or 911 to report their concerns.”

2020 democratic primary 2020 democratic race 2020 presidential election Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren girls Intelwars Joe Biden watch White men Women

Elizabeth Warren chokes up after question about ‘two white men’ now left in race: ‘All those little girls … are going to have to wait four more years’

When far-left U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) spoke to the media outside her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home Thursday about her decision to end her presidential campaign, a reporter asked about another kind of race.

“I wonder what your message would be to the women and girls who feel like, ‘We’re left with two white men to decide between’?” the reporter inquired, presumably in reference to the leading Democratic candidates, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I know,” Warren responded before getting a bit choked up. “One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinky promises, and all those little girls who are gonna have to wait four more years. That’s gonna be hard.”

Warren had been making “pinky promises” to young girls during her campaign “so that they’ll remember that running for president is what girls do.”

Anything else?

Warren, a front-runner for the Democratic nomination a few months ago, drifted into the pack once primary season began.

Disappointing vote totals in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina gave way to Warren’s chance to rebound on Super Tuesday. But she failed to win any of the 14 states up for grabs, including her home state of Massachusetts, where she took third place. In addition, Warren’s total pledged delegate count sat at 65 as of Thursday morning, well behind Biden’s 596 and Sanders’ 531. She then reportedly flew home to reassess her campaign with staff.

According to Mic, the Biden and Sanders campaigns reportedly have been asking Warren for her endorsement, but she noted Thursday that such a decision will have to wait.

“I need some space around this, and I want to take a little time to think a little more,” she said.
