    Mohammed is approached by a middle-aged man wearing greasy beige pants, a blue shirt and a blue baseball cap. Although the man speaks Greek, the 17-year-old boy from Afghanistan knows exactly what he wants. "No," Mohammad repeatedly says in English, his voice cracking and his eyes filling with tears. But the man keeps pushing. "Come with me. I will give you food, pay you." The man only stops when he realizes he is being watched. He then grudgingly walks away and sits down on a nearby bench. From there, he starts scouring the field again, searching for another boy. It...
  • Former Richard Nixon counsel says Trump’s Comey firing is like ‘accelerated’ Watergate

    President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey looks like Watergate in fast-forward, says the Richard Nixon staffer who helped expose that scandal. “The White House just totally botched this,” John Dean, Nixon’s White House Counsel, told the Daily News Wednesday morning. “If this was not a strong-arm play to slow down the investigation, they certainly did make it look like one.” Dean described the whole situation as “Nixonian,” but said there was notable differences between this and Watergate. In particular, he noted, the pace of Trump’s drama seems “accelerated.” Even the Richard Nixon Presidential Library wanted to separate the...

    The woman stayed in the hotel room in Halle with her companion in June 2010. She asked judges to force the hotel to fully name her lover who she knew only as Michael. The hotel had earlier refused to identify the man who was billed for the room or to supply his address. ***** Judges said the man has the right to control his own personal data, along with the right to protect his family and marriage, according to the statement. Those rights took precedence over her right to child maintenance payments, the court added.

    The United Airlines passenger who was hauled off an overbooked plane is a poker-playing doctor from Kentucky with a sordid past. Dr. David Dao, 69, who was captured in a now-viral video being forcibly dragged off the Louisville-bound flight at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Sunday, was working as a doctor specializing in pulmonary disease in Elizabethtown when he was convicted of trading prescription drugs for sex favors. According to documents filed with the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, Dao was arrested in 2003 on the drug-related offenses following an undercover investigation.

    It is a world steeped in depravity and vice, where tens of thousands of women are preyed upon by the wealthiest men in society and ruthlessly exploited as playthings for pure pleasure. This is the shocking setting for Jessica Brown Findlay’s return to costume drama. And it’s a million miles away from the niceties of life at Downton Abbey, in which she played genteel Lady Sybil. Ms Findlay stars as an elegant Georgian courtesan in Harlots, which turns a spotlight on the secret world of 18th Century England’s highly lucrative sex trade.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma state senator was booked Thursday on child prostitution charges for allegedly hiring a 17-year-old boy for sex, leading to calls for his resignation and a separate internal investigation into his years of work with a youth program. Ralph Shortey, a 35-year-old conservative Republican who has a wife and three young daughters, surrendered to authorities on charges of engaging in child prostitution, transporting a minor for prostitution and engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church. He was released after about two hours on a $100,000 bond. "I have no comment at this time,...

    Lurid accusations of priests involved in sex orgies, porn videos and prostitution have emerged from several parishes in Italy recently, sending shock waves all the way to the Vatican and challenging the high standards Pope Francis demands of clergy. In the southern city of Naples, for example, a priest was recently suspended from the parish of Santa Maria degli Angeli over claims he held gay orgies and used Internet sites to recruit potential partners whom he paid for sex.

    During Super Bowl weekend 522 would-be sex buyers or sex traffickers were arrested across the United States. The arrests follow a massive sting operation involving 23 law enforcement agencies in 14 states taking part in the National Johns Suppression Initiative. The program started three weeks ago and culminated on Super Bowl Sunday. "Sex trafficking continues to destroy countless lives, and this broad national movement should send a strong message to prospective johns that their 'hobby' is much more than a 'victimless' crime," said Illinois Sheriff Thomas J. Dart in a press release. "It's particularly meaningful that this sting culminated on...

    Hawaii lawmakers are considering decriminalizing prostitution in the Aloha State after the speaker of the House introduced a bill that would also legalize buying sex and acting as a pimp. The proposal also would end a state law that says police officers can’t have sex with prostitutes in the course of investigations. Transgender activist Tracy Ryan is pushing the bill, saying transgender women are overrepresented in the sex trade and therefore disproportionately affected by criminalization laws. “I don’t like seeing people sent to jail that don’t belong there,” Ryan said. But long-time anti-sex trafficking advocate Kathryn Xian said legalizing the...

    The media has given up even pretending to report facts about Donald Trump anymore, openly admitting that their latest report about Donald Trump and Russian prostitutes is not backed up by any evidence.  Have you ever before seen the New York Times or Washington Post publish a piece they admit is unsubstantiated?  If it is unsubstantiated, then why publish it? Anyway, the meat of the unsubstantiated allegations is that the Russians have blackmail material on Donald Trump.  The claim is that when he went to a hotel in Russia, he ordered the presidential suite where he knew Obama and...
