Pennsylvania prosecutors are preparing to charge former Penn State president Graham Spanier today with perjury and obstruction of justice relating to the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal, sources tell NBC News.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly and state Police Commissioner Frank Noonan have scheduled a news conference in the state capital of Harrisburg to announce what the sources describe as a major new development in the case. It comes nearly one year after Sandusky, Penn State's former defensive coordinator, was arrested and charged with repeatedly abusing young boys dating back to 1996, setting off one of the biggest scandals in the history of college sports. Sandusky, the longtime deputy to the school's late legendary coach, Joe Paterno was convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse last June and was recently sentenced to 30 to 60 years in state prison.

He was a snake when he was in Nebraska.

Google “The Franklin Incident”.

Lets just say that few in Nebraska are surprised that Spannier’s name came up in a situation like this.

Moderator, there’s another thread on this that sources an ESPN story on the indictment. It has several replies, but it isn’t in breaking news.

Since this just came out, I thought a thread belonged in breaking.

If that other thread is a better vehicle, please delete this one. But how about the other thread being in breaking news. Because it IS breaking.

Spanier (pictured) and two others previously charged in the case – suspended Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and ex-Vice President Gary Schultz – “used their positions to conceal and cover up for years the activities of a known child predator,” Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda L. Kelly told reporters Thursday.

“(The three defendants) worked to actively conceal the truth with total disregard to the children who were vicimts in this case,” Kelly said.

I guess if he gets convicted he’ll lose that super secret Øbama consulting job but then again he’s a Rat so could be a resume enhancer.

Thanks to the moderator for adding meat on the bones of my original post. I was just sitting here online with FR with Rush on, and heard ABC radio news of the Spanier indictment.

Didn’t see anything in breaking and thought something should be...happened so recently...but had no link.

Justice wheels may grind slowly but they are grinding in that horrific case, are they not?

At Penn State, the world has finally seen the atrocity of pedophilia, resulting from encouraging homosexuality and free-for-all sex----as the NCAA issued the death sentence for PS's transgressions against youngsters.

Even left-leaning college administrators are starting to have second thoughts about the excesses of "gay-friendly" atmospheres on campus........these pedophile-havens have held numerous "homo-sensitivity training" sessions on campus......(read indoctrination).

Penn State prez Graham Spanier---is a "human sexuality scholar"-----with all the academic training a Planned Parenthood uses to sexualize youngsters. How this guy got to be a college prez with that degree is amazing. SPANIER actually held what he called a "C***fest" on campus and installed a special tent just to indoctrinate WRT homo sex practices.

Spanier is out as PS prez---but he and his wife are still on the PS payroll as tenured profs. Spanier also advocated wife-swapping----could be the reason why M/M Spanier are still getting paychecks---they must have some hair-raising stories to tell WRT group sex play on the PS campus.

We need to remember that pedophiles and sexualists like Spanier are ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others and no remorse......anti-social psychopaths who recognize no moral boundaries--aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences to others.


It's high time the Planned Parenthood organization is seen in the same context-----and is thrown out of our schools and cutoff from getting tax dollars to hyper-sexualize our youngsters.


BE AWARE There is a HUGE push to normalize pedophilia---BY PLANNED PAR$ENTHOOD, NAMBLA AND ASSOCIATED GROUPS----they have been organizing for years.

When one pedophile surfaces, you can be sure there are many others lurking around. They gather in swarms to hunt kids....even going on kid hunts to toy stores.

Keep in mind, these evil souless predators are amazingly persuasive — and take pride in their ability to dupe people without displaying their true nature.

People are easily taken in by these calculatedly charming, persuasive predators. Pedophiles entice their victims by gaining their trust.......the same way they get people to cover for them.

What Joe Paterno did was unforgiveable---but we know how persuasive these predators are. The first judge in the Penn State case actually let Sandusky go free---another sign WRT how easily predators dupe people into being their willing enablers.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD-—THE PEDOPHILES AMONG US-—IN OUR SCHOOLS This vile organization-—Planned Parenthood—— exhibits all the signs of avid organized pedophiles.They are in our schools K-12 sniffing around the genitals of young people We need to know how many of these PP types are connected to pedophilia organizations-——and have been convicted of pedophilia.

THIS JUST IN PPhood’s newsest atrocity is texting children——a sex “educator” employed by Planned Parenthood—-the organization that works constantly to drive a wedge between children and their parents-—will be texting your children without parental knowledge or consent.

THE PEDOPHILE CREDO Planned Parenthood Federation of America has proclaimed a right to sexual enjoyment as a basic human right for all people, including children, and is pushing that goal in every arena, including schools, community groups, and particularly the United Nations. It hires children as young as 14 to promote sex to their peers, and one affiliate recently posted a job listing for a state-funded peer educator position that requires that the teens must attend the annual gay pride parade in order to work for PP.

When Planned Parenthood of Greater Northern New Jersey held its annual national sex educators’ conference, it promoted a website pushing such resources as “Unequal Partners, Teaching about Power and Consent in Adult-Teen and Other Relationships.” Planned Parenthood is actively involved in trying to push existing boundaries that separate and protect children from sexual fodder for pedophiles

While this particular texting program has launched in the Denver area, it may well be a test program with plans for
nationwide expansion. Parents must be very vocal in their opposition to Planned Parenthood texting their children. You can monitor your children’s phones for texting by noting the program’s acronym and number. The Planned Parenthood “In Case You’re Curious” contact info is obtained by texting ICYC to 66746.

She's a lame duck and should just shut her mouth and go away and let her successor deal with this after the election.

( – By the time they leave elementary school, children should be able to “define sexual orientation,” and by the eighth grade be able to “define emergency contraception and its use,” according to a report containing controversial new recommendations for sex education in U.S. public schools.“Ideally, comprehensive sexuality education should start in kindergarten and continue through 12th grade,” says the “National Sexuality Education Standards” report, drawn up by a range of advocates, academics and public education officials.

The Future of Sex Education (FoSE), an initiative started by sex education advocates, developed the standards “to create a strategic plan for sexuality education policy and implementation.”

Also involved are the American School Health Association, the National Education Association Health Information Network – the non-profit arm of the nation’s largest teacher’s union, the NEA – the American Association for Health Education and the Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education. An advisory committee includes senior officials from Planned Parenthood and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

The 45-page report determines “age-appropriate” guidelines for comprehensive sexuality education in the areas of anatomy, identity, pregnancy, sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) and others. “Specifically, the National Sexuality Education Standards were developed to address the inconsistent implementation of sexuality education nationwide and the limited time allocated to teaching the topic,” reads the report.

The authors argue too little time is devoted to instruction in HIV, pregnancy and STD prevention – a median total of 3.1 hours in elementary school, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In its rationale for sex education in public schools, the report says there is “a pressing need to address harassment, bullying and relationship violence in our schools, which have a significant impact on a student’s emotional and physical well-being as well as on academic success.”

Standards to be introduced in kindergarten and be met by the second grade include: “Identify different kinds of family structures” and “Demonstrate ways to show respect for different types of families.”

Recommendations for students by the time they reach age seven include that they [u]se proper names for body parts, including male and female anatomy” and “[p]rovide examples of how friends, family, media, society and culture influence ways in which boys and girls think they should act.”

Starting in the third grade, and upon completion of the fifth – when most children are 10 years old – students should be able to “[d]efine sexual orientation as the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or a different gender” and “[i]dentify parents or other trusted adults of whom students can ask questions about sexual orientation.”

By completion of the eighth grade, the report says, students should be able to “[d]ifferentiate between gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation,” “[e]xplain the range of gender roles,” and “[d]efine emergency contraception and its use.”

Upon completion of middle school, students should be able to “[a]nalyze external influences that have an impact on one’s attitudes about gender, sexual orientation and gender identity”; “[a]ccess accurate information about gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation”; “[c]ommunicate respectfully with and about people of all gender identities, gender expressions and sexual orientations”; “[e]xplain the health benefits, risks and effectiveness rates of various methods of contraception, including abstinence and condoms”; and “[d]escribe the steps to using a condom correctly.”

And by the time they graduate from high school students should be expected to “[d]efine emergency contraception and describe its mechanism of action” and “[a]ssess the skills and resources needed to become a parent.”

Included in the guidelines are the following: “Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of abstinence and other contraceptive methods, including condoms”; “Access medically-accurate information and resources about emergency contraception”; “Compare and contrast the laws relating to pregnancy, adoption, abortion and parenting”; and “Describe potential impacts of power differences (e.g., age, status or position) within sexual relationships.”

The report includes a glossary that defines gender expression, gender identity, gender roles, and transgenderism. “National Resources” for teachers, listed in the report, include GLSEN and Planned Parenthood Advocates for Youth, an organization that supports federal legislation for comprehensive sex education policy.

While the standards include references to abstinence, the FoSE advocates against abstinence-only programs. “Today, as the pendulum swings away from abstinence-only-until-marriage programs, advocates for comprehensive sex education are challenged to remain vigilant on the policy front, making certain that we maintain gains against this failed effort,” FoSE says on its Web site.

FoSE lists Focus on the Family, Concerned Women for America, Moral Majority and the Eagle Forum as groups that “spearheaded campaigns to discredit comprehensive sexuality education.

This timing could be very damagaing to Ø as the POTUS “took care of” Spanier by providing him with a cushy executive job in the federal beaurocracy.

Why does Ø aid and abet those who aid and abet child abuse?

No. Did you notice in the documentary, they stated “pederasty was normal in muslim countries—like Morocco.” How come no one I talk to knows about the rampant pederasty among Islamists, particularly Afghanistan—where we are trying to create a “free” society. Free for what????? To molest the boys? and cut off the noses of women???? Why are we there???? Just blast the place to smithereens and get out....their whole worldview is sick.

Did you notice in 1981-—the cover-up by the press of these acts. Infants used by men. This is so incredibly sick-—and been going on for DECADES with the MSM covering up for their sodomite friends, JUST LIKE TODAY!!!!!.

I am well aware of the Franklin Cover-up. Many elites in society are pederasts.....since 1900 and before. Check out “Keynes at Harvard”. Most elites knew that Keynes was raping little boys—even going to third world counties and castrating boys and combing Eton for boys.

Same as Sandusky. Sandusky ran a sex ring, I am sure. Yet, powerful people-—well-connected people/lawyers/professors/judges/politicians/ceo’s look the other way—some were even probably participating in raping boys.

This pederasty is common with atheist/occultists/Satanists. It is always these sick elites—very wealthy and connected who mock God, like a Hitler and the SA Brownshirts who had a taste for boys.

Hollywood is full of pederasts/homosexuals. Corey Feldman stated it in the press last year —that Hollywood is a massive pedophile ring. Why is the “press” not seeking these producers who raped the Corey boys? The silence is deafening (but not so with the Catholic Church since they condemn homosexuality).

Hollywood pumps out vulgar, sexualizing entertainment to corrupt little children so that they are future victims—easily seduced because their movies promote perversion and immoral condition children to think it is normal.

This is intentional and the elites—like Rahm Emanuel are promoting sodomy—so that eventually pederasty is legal—like it was in Ancient civilizations. With the sexualization of kindergarteners and the promotion of sodomy in schools—and Pride in sodomy-—is to make little boys future prostitutes for the power hungry men who desire little boys. Keynes has the same mentality as our present day elites who are in charge of education (Bill Ayers types) who want to kill God and elevate perversion as normal and Sex Ed (planned parenthood) is their MO. Sex Ed is to corrupt children—it was created by the godless, Cultural Marxists like Lukacs. Both these articles are well worth reading.

Today’s public schools and MSM are promoting child sex-—and they mainly consist of old men who want sex with the boys. We are conditioned to think it is the girls we should be careful about-—nope-—it is the little boys who are in the greatest danger.

I found the documentary by accident. It only goes to prove that nothing has changed since the first time I saw it in 1981.

Nothing except the victims can now sue for big bucks. ie Michael Jackson and now Penn State.
