Let there be no doubt, those who engage in the child sex trade are society's most vile — and many times, as the recent revelations out of Hollywood are showing us, the most elite.
Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney agrees and has devoted much of her life to ousting these vile predators. In February, McKinney made a point noting that going after child predators will lead to the downfall of both Republicans and Democrats — as this problem goes all the way to the top.
Now, this former congresswoman is at it again, promoting a documentary, titled, An Open Secret that exposes the horrific problem of child sex trafficking in Hollywood.
For those who don't remember McKinney, she is the Congresswoman who bravely questioned the elite — on the house floor — about their role in the child trafficking industry.
On Tuesday, McKinney noted that while we expose these monsters in Hollywood, the monsters in Washington D.C. will be next.
Never before has the problem of pedophilia among the elite gotten so much coverage.
As corporate media writes off talk of 'pizzagate' as if it's some tinfoil conspiracy theory that couldn't possibly happen, recent busts of pedophilia rings and whistleblowers in Hollywood are shattering their claims.
“Pretending this issue doesn’t exist only makes us more complicit in it,” newly elected San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliott said earlier this year in regard to the pedophilia problem, and she's correct.
However, as Corey Feldman, former child actor and victim of Hollywood's child sex problem, stated last year, it is not so easy to expose these folks.
“Everybody deals with things differently. I’m not able to name names. People are frustrated, people are angry, they want to know how is this happening, and they want answers—and they turn to me and they say, ‘Why don’t you be a man and stand up and name names and stop hiding and being a coward?’ I have to deal with that, which is not pleasant, especially given the fact that I would love to name names. I’d love to be the first to do it. But unfortunately California conveniently enough has a statute of limitations that prevents that from happening. Because if I were to go and mention anybody’s name, I would be the one that would be in legal problems and I’m the one that would be sued. We should be talking to the district attorneys and the lawmakers in California, especially because this is where the entertainment industry is and this is a place where adults have more direct and inappropriate connection with children than probably anywhere else in the world.”
As the Daily Beast notes, legal problems stemming from sexual-harassment or -assault allegations are a major issue in Hollywood, and contribute to a culture of silence. Weinstein is alleged to have paid off at least eight of his accusers—on the condition that they agree to strict nondisclosure agreements to prevent their stories from going public. Furthermore, the movie mogul’s employment contract at The Weinstein Company reportedly protected him from being fired because of sexual-harassment allegations.
However, the tide appears to be shifting. Starting with Angelina Jolie and Gwenneth Paltrow earlier this month, a veritable torrent of stars have come forward to expose how they have been raped, abused, groped, or otherwise molested by Hollywood top dogs.
Rose McGowan went on a Twitter tirade calling Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos out for ignoring her reported rape while working with his company.
“I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.”
Even James Van Der Beek, another child star who grew up in the industry came out on Thursday claiming that he'd been abused when he was "much younger."
Kaya Jones, the former member of the Pussycat Dolls and platinum recording artist has followed suit and once again gone public with allegations of her abuse. For those who think that these stars are simply riding the coattails of Weinstein's fall and are only now coming out with these allegations, think again.
Many of these stars have screamed from the mountain tops about their abuse only to be ignored, shamed, kicked out of the industry, or driven to death. It took an ousting of a megastar like Weinstein to finally make people listen.

Even FOX News jumped on the expose the pedo train and brought the problem up in their prime time show.
"And by the way -- it is not over yet, folks. There's more coming," FOX News Channel whose hot-tempered pundit, Judge Jeanine Pirro said. "It is not just adult women, it is human trafficking, it is child sex trafficking, it is real pedophilia, in a town where there are no rules. Where the truth is stranger than fiction, and where fiction is based on reality.
It is time for the Dept. of Justice to get their act in gear, start a federal criminal investigation into Harvey Weinstein, his ongoing criminal activity, that no doubt has crossed state lines and continents."
If you think these claims of pedophilia in Washington D.C. are the myths of tinfoil hat-wearing basement dwellers, think again. It has been well documented.
In January, admitted child rapist and former speaker of the house who is currently in jail, Dennis Hastert came across our radar after he demanded one of the children he raped pay back the hush money given to him by Hastert — because he broke his silence about the rape.
When the victim, known only as 'Individial A,' broke his silence, Hastert's child rapes were exposed — resulting in the subsequent prosecution.
"To the extent any contract existed between plaintiff [Individual A] and defendant [Hastert], plaintiff breached that contract," Hastert's lawyers wrote.
"Plaintiff's breach of conduct resulted in damages to defendant and plaintiff is accordingly required to return $1.7 million to defendant."
Individual A did not go public with this information — he merely spoke to the FBI after the transactions were uncovered by investigators. However, this sicko couldn't care less about airing this repugnant grievance in the public forum as it was almost entirely ignored by the media.
There was also another massive pedophilia scandal in the United States in what became known as the Franklin child sex ring coverup. Once the FBI took over the investigation from state authorities, however, it turned into a witch hunt to persecute the child victims – going so far as to charge them with perjury in a successful attempt to scare the other 70+ victims to recant their testimony regarding the child sex ring.
As Hollywood burns, it is up to the American citizens and the media to keep pushing to expose these monsters. And, as Cynthia McKinney said, watch out Washington D.C. pedophiles, because you're next.
