Cell Phone at the Church: Not God’s Work


Pastor admitted taking upskirt photo of woman at Deltona church, report states

By: Jeff Weiner (For the Orlando Sentinel)

A now-former pastor at a  Deltona, Florida  church faces a voyeurism charge, accused of taking an upskirt photo of a woman in his office after a Sunday service, authorities said.

Brian “Rick” Kenyon Jr., 31, faces a felony charge of video voyeurism. He was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on Thursday, but was released that afternoon on $2,500 bail, officials said.

According to an arrest affidavit, the 41-year-old victim told Volusia County sheriff’s deputies the incident happened April 8 at the Deltona Church of Christ on Providence Boulevard.

The woman had watched Kenyon’s children for him during the service. Afterward, she went to his office to turn the kids over to him, but soon realized something was wrong, the affidavit said.

 

Kenyon seemed nervous and was avoiding eye contact, she said. Then, he asked her to put his youngest child in a car seat.

The woman, who was wearing a sundress, said she bent forward and knelt to secure the child in the seat, but then felt skin brush against her leg, causing her to turn around and yelled.

According to the affidavit, she saw Kenyon kneeling behind her, bent at the waist, with his hand near the bottom of her dress.

When he stood, she said she noticed he was holding his cell phone.

The woman told her husband what had happened, and later enlisted several members of the congregation to help confront Kenyon.

At a meeting, Kenyon denied taking a picture up the woman’s dress, the affidavit said, claiming he was trying to take a picture of his child but dropped the phone between the woman’s legs.

                                        “dark moment”

 

He did admit having a “pornography problem,” the affidavit said.

However, at a second meeting April 19, Kenyon confessed to taking an upskirt picture of the woman, the affidavit said. He described it as a “dark moment” that came over him, investigators said.

He said he had deleted the photo, the affidavit states.

Church staff confirmed to a sheriff’s detective that Kenyon had been “removed” from the church, and was never in charge of youth programs or given unsupervised contact with chidlren.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 386-943-8276.

You Did it!!! But Don’t throw away your signs


GTY 978181214 A POL USA CA

For many american’s, the Presidency of Donald Trump has been exasperating.  For many,  their aren’t any penalties for his misdeeds.   The reality he has been checked.
There are literally hundreds of cases awaiting a court date.

However, Americans saw a rare about face from the President, after recordings and images of small children crying outraged the nation and the world.

In an attempt to honor two campaign promises, the president has limited the number of immigrants attempting to cross the border from Mexico and was hoping to force the democrats to agree to a new immigration bill that would include money for a border wall.

On Wednesday Donald Trump, signed a national an executive order designed to keep migrant families together at the U.S. Mexican border. Abandoning his earlier claim that the crisis was caused by an iron-clad law and not a policy that he could reverse.

 In Trump’s new executive order, the defense secretary is instructed to take all available measures to provide to the Department of Homeland Security any existing facilities for the housing and care of “alien families” or to build them if necessary.

The challenge for the government is locating the children.  Who were separated from their families without paper work and relocated in some cases thousands of miles from the border.

 Don’t throw away your signs!

The Executive order was for just for the cameras. The new order will allow immigrants to be sent to military bases.

Yesterday, the New York Times reported the US is preparing to shelter as many as 20,000 migrant children on four American military bases, to carry out President Trump’s order to keep immigrant families together after they are apprehended at the border.

The 20,000 beds at bases in Texas and Arkansas would house “unaccompanied alien children,” said a Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Col. Michael Andrews, although other federal agencies provided conflicting explanations about how the shelters would be used and who would be housed there. There were reports of widespread confusion on the border.

It was unclear whether the military housing would also house the parents of children in migrant families that have been detained, and officials at the White House, the Defense Department and the Department of Health and Human Services said on Thursday that they could not provide details.

On Wednesday, he encouraged the house to draft immigration reform.      Reliably, the president doubled down in tweet.

Today, the children are on lock down.  The press are not allowed access.  The White House say’s 500 immigrant children who were separated from their families at the southern border have been reunited with their families since May.   The Associated Press first reported that about 500 of the more than 2,000 children separated had been reunited.  A senior Trump administration official the AP spoke with said many of the children were reunited within days. The official wasn’t sure how many of the reunited children remain in custody with their families or how many are no longer in the country.

Americans stood up for the children and forced the President hands.

 Today, the President continues to villainies brown skinned immigrants.    He invited families to the White House that have been victimized by immigrants.  They stood behind him holding photos of family members.  “These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones … ‘permanently’ being the word that you have to think about,” he said. “They’re not separated for a day or two days. These are permanent separations, because they were killed by criminal illegal aliens.

Don’t throw away your signs…..

Ahhh Sweetie, what is this ?

We’ve always admired the First Lady’s fashion sense.   This morning she boarded the plane to visit with detained immigrant children in a Texas border town wearing this coat.  She didn’t wear the coat during the visit, however she wore it on her return.

There is a lot of speculation of why she wore it.  Handlers said it didn’t have a meaning.  Her husband in a tweet said, ” It refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!”

Hmmmm

Hotel Confidential: Civility in the Trump era

The temperature a sudden change in the air.  Anger and hostility at some the hotels with guest attacking staff and guest fighting with other guests.

In some parts of the country, Latino’s notably Mexicans workers is the cornerstone of many hotels, running the front and back offices.

In the last few years,workers with an accent have been verbally and physically attacked simply because they have accent. At a southern California, a quest slapped a housekeeper for responding to another housekeeper in Spanish.

A guest refused to check into a hotel and demanded their reservation cancelled without penalty because the front desk agent was Muslim.

Some guest refuse to interact with employees who have accents, often demand that an “American’ complete their transaction.

Some guest have complained about two or more employees speaking to each other in another language.  Demanding they only speak English.

 There were racist guest before Donald Trump.  Since his election many hotels have seen a major spike in racist behavior with guest verbally and physically attacking hotel staff, with most of the rage towards Latinos.

Breakfast

Cable News: one show is too right (Fox) the other one is too left (Msnbc) and one is kinda alright (CNN)  In a perfect world the hotel would have three televisions. When there is one Television in the dining area, the safe choice is center.  

A guest wrote a complaint letter to the hotel chains customer service department.   In the letter he said, he couldn’t believe that hotel chain would have CNN on the television a network known for its fake news.  He was so disturbed, he could barely eat his breakfast and will never stay at that hotel again!

In Sacramento, a guest demanded the channel to be changed to Fox News.  He says he spends thousands with the hotel and he wants to watch Fox.  and when the worker said she didn’t have the remote.  He threw his plate into the television screen and stormed off screaming.   He later, told the manager the worker’s attitude made him do it.!

An argument over one of Trumps polices, turned into a brawl including one 71 year old grandmother, police were called.

No one can recall the animosity exhibited today hotels/motels today. .  Guest fighting ,arguing, during the breakfast hour has left some supervisors with no other option than to simply turn the television off.

Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of the State of New York resigned today.

Schneiderman well known in the state, as a champion of women’s rights.  The man who legal action against filmmaker Harvey Weinstein and one of the male faces of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.

Four women, strangers, spoke to the The New Yorker Magazine.   What they have in common is violence at the hand of Schneiderman.  The Democrat was a strong critic of President Trump.

The allegations are shocking, and the Attorney General resigned three hours after the story was released.

Resisting Numbness


Image result for the back of Donald trump

When did the Germans know their country was turning left?

When the status quo was being dismantled, how many Germans turned the page?

Who stood up and said somethings wrong?

How many?

Time to study history.

The majority of Americans knew a President Trump would be a disaster. An American known for his hyperbole, a man who’s truth is questionable.

 Early on, in his administration, he turned on his lower income supporters who voted for him. His misstatements were irritants, his interactions with world leaders embarrassed us.

His love and devotion to Vladimir Putin is curious.

My Republican friends would say, yes, he lies. The Liberals are overeating, the House and the Senate will keep him in check.  That was last year.

In 2018 the bad news has increased five fold. The Tweets and the lies has overwhelmed my Republican friends. No one is saying be patient liberals or wait and see as they have quietly joined the chorus of what next.

His credibility is nonexistent, his supporters have hope. World leaders know, like Paul Manafort knew, to get into the Presidents good graces was to compliment him. (Nice aftershave) What he truly believes is based on the direction the wind is blowing or who last had his ear.

By the stroke of a pen, he has and continues to damages the credibility of the United States of America.   Our Commander in Chief is dismantling agreements put in other Presidents.  Anyone entering into an agreement with President Trump has to beware of disappearing ink.

The Presidents grasp of the facts or how government works is limited at best.   His single focus seems to based on keeping his small base happy.   To do this, he must keep his promises.   Its not important that he doesn’t know how those problems affects the lives of his base as long as he can check a public box.     One example of this is his proposed tariffs.  Which has the full attention of business, who greatly benefited from resent tax cuts.  They are very concerned about adding  tariffs and possibly creating a global trade war . This frightens Wall Street and business , who have benefited from the North American Free Trade Agreement and other Pre Trump Agreements.

This year, the negative news is coming out at such a rapid clip that many Americans have become numbed to the negativity.  There is less outrage to the daily news.   For a lot of us, truth and the facts doesn’t seem to matter.   Despite the outrage, the abuse of power, his children, his businesses. We do not see any form of consequences for this president, and to members of his administration.

Conventional reason says, the Democrats will take over the House this fall. The pundits and polls say’s its possible the Demos could take the Senate. These were the some of the same people who predicted Hillary Clinton would have an easy win over Donald Trump.

I’m not convinced the Demo’s have a lock on the house or a chance to take over the Senate. As they have an history of imploding.. While the Republicans have abandoned anyone under 40. The Democrats are assuming they will get their support. While I hear  that there is movement in Florida, there is little in the mid west and in those red states in the south.

I am encouraged by newly formed grass roots organizations who are registering new and first time voters.   Encouraged by high school students reminding those qualified,to  register to vote.  Discouraged by some patronizing seasoned Democrats who failed to take the temperature of the room of several meetings.   It was more about their agenda and less about the the attendees and needs of  their community.

We know the county is turning left.  What happened in Germany.  Did the citizens slowly accept the direction the county was going on.  What can I do differently?

The Weather Service predicts STORM clouds around the White House

 Attack the Country/Raid Michael Cohen’s offices-its the same thing believe me!  

 “It’s a disgraceful situation. … I’ve been saying it for a long time. I have this witch hunt constantly going on.”

“It’s an attack on our country, in a true sense,” Trump declared. “It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”

“This is the most biased group of people, these people have the biggest conflicts of interest I’ve ever seen,” the president said. “Democrats all — or just about all, either Democrats or a couple of Republicans that worked for President Obama,” Trump said. “They’re not looking at the other side. They’re not looking at the Hillary Clinton.

 

 The Prez says the Democrats are after him

All the people involved are Proud Republicans most of whom HE appointed

 Attorney General Jeff Sessions who recused himself for the Russia Probe.  Robert Muller is a Republican ,Deputy General Rod Rosenstein

Last January,  Jeff Sessions appointed Geoffrey S. Berman to the office of the Southern District in New York . This office executed the search warrants and seized the privileged communications from Michael Cohen.  Mr. Berman is a former law partner of Rudolph W. Giuliani, a former New York mayor and a supporter of Mr. Trump.

Update: Geoffrey Berman was recused from the investigation before FBI agents raided Cohen’s offices and home.  Last year, President Trump personally interviewed Berman for the position. A President doesn’t normally interview potential candidates.  Trump Tower is in the Southern District. Berman donated $5400, to Trump’s Campaign.

Ohh Stormy! Image result for stormy danielsP

I’m not sure if President Obama or Hillary Clinton ever met  Stormy Daniels.  Michael Cohen knew her well enough to give her $130,000  just because.   He even took out a loan to pay her.  To get that loan, did he tell the bank, the money was for renovations or Stormy?

After weeks of being silent about the weather.  Last week the Prez told the press he didn’t know  any thing about a payment to Stormy?

“Storm Clouds”

Bank Fraud? Wire Fraud? Campaign Finance Violation? 

Banks don’t usually require much explanation from customers about how they use such credit lines. However, Cohen may have been asked to provide explanation for the large-dollar transfers he made when he moved the money to a shell company and then to a lawyer for Daniels.

To obtain a search warrant, prosecutors must convince a federal judge that agents are likely to discover evidence of criminal activity.

DAMM! DAMM! DAMM!

The Prez may have put the investigation into high gear when he said, he didn’t know anything about any payment to Stormy.   Leaving his mouth piece, vulnerable and possibly jeopardizing Cohen’s freedom and his career.   The problem for the prez, should he fire Muller, this investigation will continue.

 The Prez believes the raid on his attorney is like an attack to the country!
Okay!!
