‘Bill Cosby the Rapist’? 41 Women, 1 ‘Organized Lie’

When The New Nationalist undertook open-source research into the downfall of Bill Cosby, we were operating under the false notion that he had drugged, raped or sexually assaulted some forty one women over nearly 50 years. There are allegedly more who are “Jane Does.” And, after all, could more than 41 women commit one big lie? Well guess again. Cosby’s list of accusers can be gleaned here.

The narrative is quite consistent and states that going back to the 1960s, Cosby presented to women little white mystery pills believed to be GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate). Why anyone would deliberately ingest a drug that could facilitate their own rape is a subject of intense debate. As you read the accounts and to our surprise very few claim they were slipped a mickey.

Implausibly, Cosby was said to be Mr. Johnny on the Spot with his mystery pills whenever a woman had a headache, needed cheering up, suffered menstrual cramps, the flu, etc. Many accusers were Hollywood wannabes, party girls, Playboy bunnies, prostitutes, and a number have criminal records. Most have made their allegations decades after the incidents.

Women who ingested the magic pills said they awoke five hours later covered in Bill Cosby’s semen and no memory of what happened. One “victim’s” impact statement alleged, “There was a horrible mess of semen all over my face. I bordered on vomiting. He was mumbling that I had been blessed with his semen as if it was holy water.”

Some “victims” accused Cosby of raping them on “multiple occasions.” How does that one work? A Jane Doe called “Patricia” said she met Cosby in the 1970s when she was in her 20s and claims Cosby sexually assaulted her on two occasions. After a dinner party at his house one night, she woke up naked after blacking out from one drink. Her “memory” was lucid enough to recall that he her “cover her face in oatmeal” and “pretended to be an elegant queen.” She says Cosby demanded she lose weight and style her hair like Queen Noor of Jordan.

“I would leave the room and walk back in, pretending to be a queen with oatmeal on her face, and he would tell me I was doing it wrong and to go back and try again. Then, I started to feel weird from the drink. And then I don’t remember much,” she claimed in the lawsuit.

Barbara Bowman claims she was drugged and raped by Cosby on multiple occasions over the course of many years. She said Cosby would pay for her to get on planes and fly to different cities where he could re-rape her over and over again. Bowman explained her “re-rape” accusations by reasoning that Svengali-like Cosby “brainwashed” her to travel the country in order to be repeatedly drugged and raped. Frankly, some of these women sound like mental cases.

Besides often sounding like farcical yarns, allegations are incredibly short on detail, lack dates and stem back a long, long time. Cosby was married, so he rarely took these women home. But he was able to pull off his crimes in crowded public places, apartments of unidentified friends, dinner parties and public events. Often, “victim” introductions were said to have been made during outings in groups or entourages.

A number of allegations involve the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. Yet, somehow Cosby was drugging and raping scores of women for decades without any word getting out. In open-source research, TNN was unable to find a single associate, credible witness (who is not seeking a financial reward) or buddy of Cosby’s who can corroborate this kind of behavior or recollect rumors about it.

Autumn Burns says she met Cosby while working as a waitress on the gaming floor of a casino in Las Vegas in 1970. After attending one of Cosby’s comedy shows, she claims he gave her a drink that caused her to feel woozy. Somehow, in a busy public casino, Cosby then managed to get a knocked out Burns into his hotel suite where he “raped” her.

Similarly, Jane Doe “Elizabeth” says she met Cosby in 1976 on an airplane when she was a 20-year-old flight attendant. She alleges that, during a dinner with Cosby at a Japanese restaurant, he gave her a glass of sake, after which she claims that she fell into a “trance-like state” and ended up in Cosby’s hotel room, where she was allegedly forced to perform an unspecified sex act.

Indeed, in 2013, after five decades of alleged drugging, dragging or carrying passed out women to private locations and then raping them, the “word” only started coming out with an onstage “Cosby the Rapist” joke from a second-rate black comedian named Hannibal Buress. Then, suddenly and out of the blue, the narrative went viral and was picked by the lugenpresse. And just as suddenly, dozens of accusers came forth with an “organized lie.”

Are we to believe that so many women, who came from active social circles (Playboy bunnies, etc.), never talked or gossiped about Cosby? Given the demand for the company of A-list celebrities and assuming Cosby was a player, it’s still unclear why he would have to resort to drugging women to have sex with them. Is a sick/depressed, drugged, unconscious woman some sort of big turn on? Maybe it’s just me, but isn’t having an aware, responsive partner during sex the whole idea?

Following the typical pattern, one Victoria Valentino, a former Playboy playmate, claims that she was introduced to Cosby by another Playboy bunny in 1970. Valentino alleges that she and her roommate went out for dinner and drinks with Cosby, who allegedly offered her a pill that would cheer her up. In a Washington Post interview (yes, faux news again), Valentino claims Cosby drove her and her roommate up to an apartment in Hollywood’s Hills. She alleges he forced her to perform oral sex and then raped her. What the heck was Victoria’s “roommate” doing during this implausible sequence of events?

In an interview with New York Daily News, Patricia Masten claims that in 1979 Cosby attacked her while she was working as a bunny at the Playboy Club in Chicago. According to Masten, he allegedly lured her to his room where he served her a glass of alcohol, after which she claims to have blacked out. She awoke hours later in bed next to Cosby, who was naked. Masten claims Cosby did this to several bunnies, saying, “There are a dozen former bunnies that I know of with similar stories, but they’re afraid to come forward.”

One La’Chelle Covington went to the police immediately after Bill Cosby allegedly unsuccessfully attempted to guide her hand toward his crotch. The police said no crime was committed, so she changed her story, adding that Cosby also fondled her breasts. La’Chelle’s own sister, an eyewitness to the incident, was quoted as saying, “She wasn’t molested.”

Before going on to the more serious allegations, one can quickly see that many of the women on the list of Cosby’s accusers are merely claiming he made a pass or unsuccessfully attempted a genital grab by taking their hand. But these stories tend to be lumped in as rape. For example, actress Carla Ferrigno, wife of “The Incredible Hulk” actor Lou Ferrigno, said she and Lou were invited on a double date in 1967 with Cosby and his wife. Carla claims that both couples went to Cosby’s home and were shooting pool in the basement. She goes on to allege that at one point, she and Cosby ended up alone together, and that he pulled her close and kissed her roughly as she tried to fight him off.

There are a few incidents that seem consistent with some aspects Bill Cosby has admitted to; specifically, the use of Quaaludes, a popular drug in the 1970s. The case of Therese Serignese, therefore, sounds a bit more credible, although it could very well be exaggerated. Speaking with People magazine on Nov. 20, 2014, Seringese alleged that she met with Cosby in Las Vegas, after one of his stand-up shows, when she was 19 years old. She claims that Cosby pressured her into taking Quaaludes — a powerful sedative, hypnotic drug – and then pressured her into agreeing to engage in sexual activity.

Serignese told People, “My next memory is I felt high; I don’t remember what happened in the meantime. Then my next memory is being in that vanity room, by that big mirror, and he didn’t have any clothes on, and obviously I didn’t either by that point. I don’t know how they got off. I don’t have that memory… I was just like bent over, and he was saying all kinds of dirty stuff,” she says. “I felt powerless, I didn’t know what to do.”

Again, being “pressured” into taking Quaaludes and then sex by a player (as opposed to a rapist) is quite vague, even if believable. But this is not rape or the same pattern seen elsewhere. So in effect, the organizers of this take down have rounded up women that Cosby made passes at or had consensual sex with under the influence of drugs to add to the mix. Should these women be included on a list of 41 “raped” women whose photos are plastered on the front cover of the New Yorker? If so every man reading this who had drunk or high sex forty years ago (or last night) is in a world of hurt. And heaven help you if you ever tried to cop a feel from a woman you thought you were on good terms with.

Another variation of this comes from one Renita Chaney Hill who claims that Cosby traveled the country with her and paid her tuition while drugging and raping her. Her parents approved of this arrangement. “Drugging and raping”? Even if the roadie travel account is true, this sounds more like a consensual sugar-daddy arrangement.

One account seems credible in terms of Cosby’s own admissions. In the 1970s, Joyce Emmons ran a number of comedy clubs and claims that she and Cosby would often hang out. Emmons alleges Cosby had “a drawer full of drugs,” including Quaaludes. She did not allege rape. The storyline has morphed into Cosby drugging them on Quaaludes to have unwilling sex. But that’s not what Cosby said, which was that he used the substance with willing sex partners as a consensual adjunct to sex.

Shawn Upshaw had a longer term consensual affair with Cosby and is currently the only woman with whom he has admitted to having an affair. Upshaw’s daughter, Autumn Jackson, was sent to prison for attempting to extort $40 million from Cosby, who is possibly her biological father. After learning of the lawsuit, Upshaw suddenly determined that Cosby must have drugged and raped her as well and then made her own accusations against him.

More serious allegations fall apart

Chloe Goins is a prostitute (arrested and charged) whose accusations against Cosby are nearly identical to those made by Judy Huth, who claims that Bill Cosby forced her to give him a hand job at the Playboy mansion when she was 15.

Unfortunately for Goins “case,” video evidence exists from 2008 that proves that neither her nor Bill Cosby were even at the Playboy mansion on the day that she claims to have been raped. Legal counsel for Cosby stated that on the date of the alleged assault (Aug. 9, 2008) there are flight and telephone records that clearly place Cosby in New York City — 2,500 miles from the mansion.

Linda Joy Traitz claims Cosby tried to drug and assault her more than 40 years ago. Turns out she has a long criminal history. Traitz got out of prison in 2012 after serving more than three years for trafficking Oxycodone, possession of a controlled substance and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. She’s been arrested and/or charged with various other crimes, including ID fraud, battery, theft and drug offenses.

Joan Tarshis went public in Nov. 2014 with allegations that Bill Cosby had raped her in 1969. “I was sitting up writing one second, and the next second I was lying down on the couch having my underwear taken off,” Tarshis told CBS News. She went on to claim that Cosby raped her twice.

It’s clear that the many news sources that carried Joan Tarshis’ allegations in typical fashion did not do any fact checking of her story or her background. If they had, they would have immediately found that Cosby did not appear at the Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, New York, in the fall of 1969. This is when Tarshis claims he attacked her after giving a show there.

Cosby attorney Marty Singer pointed out, “There is virtually no standard by which the media are holding Mr Cosby’s accusers. Anyone and everyone who wants to file a suit or get on television can be guaranteed fawning coverage. The very same media have demonstrated an unconscionable disinterest in the veracity of his accusers and their motives.”

Chelan “Breaking Bad” Lasha

One Chelan Lasha is yet another self-proclaimed victim of Cosby’s widespread and apparently secret predatory behaviors at the Las Vegas Hilton as late as 1986. Lasha’s lengthy record includes prostitution, theft, disorderly conduct, trespassing, drug use, weapon possession and false reporting.

Tamara Green shared her story on the “Today” show in 2005. She told Matt Lauer she was suffering from the flu when she met Cosby and “a number of other people” at an L.A. restaurant. According to Green, Cosby gave her pills that would help with her flu symptoms, and before long she was nearly unconscious. Green went on to claim that Cosby took her back to her home, undressed her and began groping her.

Green was suspended from practicing law by the State Bar of California and was placed on probation. Green failed to disperse a $20,000 medical settlement to a client and instead pocketed the money for herself.

After Cosby publicly denied sexually assaulting Green, she immediately filed a frivolous lawsuit against him and his attorneys that alleged that his act of defending himself from her allegations had “impugned her reputation.”

In another case, one Louisa Moritz claims Cosby just showed up in her dressing room and attempted to stick his willy in her mouth during a taping of “The Tonight Show” in 1971. Subsequent records proved that she and Cosby were never on “The Tonight Show” at the same time, yet she still insists that she is a victim and deserves money. She and, as we will see, many others who have been debunked appeared in a highly stylized feature in New York magazine.

In the case of two other accusers, former models Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson, their own manager shot the stories down as completely inconsistent with accounts given to him years earlier about a pleasant meeting with Cosby and his wife. Johnson claims that she was invited to Cosby’s home on multiple occasions, but during her last visit, he allegedly gave her coffee that she later realized was laced with drugs.

Johnson claims that she knew almost immediately that she had been drugged, and when Cosby began trying to put his hands on her, she screamed at him. According to Johnson, he became enraged, kicked her out of his house and shoved her into a cab, leaving her confused and disoriented.

Accuser Janet Dickinson in a televised interview looked scripted with poor acting and fake crying without tears at end. She alleges she just so happened to take Polaroid photos of Cosby before the rape. These are shown on air. That clown suit is how Cosby dressed in 1982? Off by a decade and a half.

The one thing that most of Cosby’s accusers seem to have in common is that they are represented by feminist attorney Gloria Allred – a woman whose life ambition is spinning anything and everything into “sexism.” All the accusers Allred represents have financial incentives. They are demanding $100 million. After about four years of having his name dragged in the mud, the lawsuits are being dismissed and only one questionable situation is going to criminal trial.

Once the smear campaign against Cosby started in earnest, friends and defenders materialized.

Cosby himself has refrained from much comment except to say, “I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos.”

Cosby’s wife of over a half century, Camille, continues to defend her husband despite the fact that he has admitted to infidelities.

Whoopi Goldberg defended Cosby on “The View.” This resulted in people making angry calls to the network. The network heads then forced Whoopi to change her opinion under the threat of being fired and blacklisted.

Phylicia Rashad defended Cosby and was quickly misquoted by the media in an attempt to demonize her.

Other performers who knew and socialized with him had no idea Cosby was carrying out years and years of serial drugging and raping.

Eddie Griffin has publicly stated that the accusations against Cosby are part of a systematic conspiracy to bring down all successful black men.

Waka Flocka Flame believes that Cosby is being framed and the accusations against him are “propaganda” and an “organized lie.”

LulzKiller and Meepsheep have said there’s “no way Cosby would fuck with any of those ugly ass bitches when a high-end escort who knows to keep her mouth shut would not at all be a financial burden when you’re Bill Cosby.”

Stacey Dash, who worked professionally with Cosby, called him a total gentleman.

In trial Cosby’s attorney is shredding the shaky testimony of Andrea Constand under cross examination. This is particularly the case given that we have yet another instance of multiple gropings over a period of time.  In addition we hear the familar nonsense of going to hang out with Cosby while feeling under the weather. She also embarked on covertly recording her relationship with Cosby.

Constand is the director of operations for the Temple University women’s basketball team. She says that in November of 2002, she met with Cosby – a Temple University alum – when he approached her and offered to be her mentor in an attempt to gain her trust. In January 2004, she says she met with Cosby at his home in Pennsylvania and alleges that he gave her pills that he said would “ease her anxiety”. Constand claims that after drugging her, Cosby groped and sexually assaulted her.

In December 2015, Cosby was arraigned on one charge of aggravated indecent assault in connection to Constand’s accusation. He posted $1 million bail. The whole case has a rancid, corrupt, Star Chamber quality to it. The trail is now in its fourth day, and by all appearances Cosby was the target of an orchestrated plot.

TNN’s Takeaway:  What was the motive for the organized deceptive takedown of Bill Cosby? Besides the motive of an unethical monetary extortion of a super wealthy man, estimated to be worth $350 million, he was both a feather ruffler and not politically correct.

He operated outside of the Crime Syndicate, was independent and marched to his own drummer. He tended to avoid the powerful alliances needed to function in modern corrupted America. Accordingly, he failed to grease enough greedy palms. For instance, in the 1990s, he attempted to solo bid for NBC Universal so as to create a venue that expressed family values.

Others likely thought he was a hypocrite because of bully pulpit lecturing to black America, telling them to take some personal responsibility. He was called a “public moralist.” We at TNN believe this made him a target of social and pervert justice warriors. Hannibal Buress in his so-called “comedy routine” all but admits it. Cosby was blunt about the message:

Ladies and gentlemen, the lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids — $500 sneakers for what? And won’t spend $200 for ‘Hooked on Phonics.’

Cosby trended toward conservative black nationalism. In 2004, he gave what is known as the Pound Cake speech to the NAACP. In it, he contrasted the brave black political activism of the 1950s and ’60s with present-day thuggery. It was tough-love that set off a firestorm.

Besides ripping into the ebonized English of ghetto blacks, Cosby also attacked black naming conventions, saying:

“We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a damned thing about Africa. With names like Shaniqua, Shaligua, Mohammed and all that crap and all of them are in jail.”

He also avoided jumping on the Muslim demonization bandwagon of kosher Hollywood. He even praised the Nation of Islam and made remarks such as this:

I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them.

“I’m telling you Christians, what’s wrong with you? Why can’t you hit the streets? Why can’t you clean it out yourselves?”

“When you want to clear your neighborhood out, first thing you do is go get the Black Muslims, bean pies and all. And your neighborhood is then clear.”

Cosby’s troubles also seemed to begin when it became clear he was no fan of Trump back when The Donald started making noises about running for president. In fact, they had a running feud that probably wasn’t going away.

Net-net, when we look at Cosby’s point of view, it’s almost like he would have been a good guest writer for TNN, and that won’t fly in today’s world. Taking him down removed an icon and added fuel to rape culture agit-prop.

TNN holds that there is evidence Cosby was likely a player and womanizer back in his Playboy mansion and club days and during his Vegas stints. Even as an older guy he seemed to have a good libido. Adding to it all though is “someone” has dug up a litany of sometimes half-truth dirt on his passes at women, fondles, crotch grabs, gropes, kisses or whatever. That is if 40 year old fondles even matter and are worth damages. In this group, those not asking for money can have some credibility. Gloria Allred is representing 33 of the alleged victims in civil suits seeking large sums of money. And he does admit to 1970s pill usage and, in particular, Quaaludes. To quote Cosby himself about the accusation experience: “You are driving down the road, see a puddle, and think should only be three inches deep. Instead it is six feet.”

But the ludicrous stories of being drugged, dragged away and raped told by a spawn of criminals, five minutes of fame opportunists and mental cases fall apart under scrutiny and are nothing more than an organized smear campaign to sell magazines and facilitate lawsuits. In fact, the faux media have done little — if any — fact checking, going instead with blatant bias and extreme sensationalism. It’s almost as if a memo came down from somewhere from within the Hollywood Mafia.

Israel: We Will Not Turn Over the JCC Bomb-Threat Hoaxer to the United States

[Translated from Hebrew using Google Translate]

The Justice Ministry in Israel has informed the US Justice Department of its refusal to allow the hacker to sow panic in the United States and that the hacker, who has already received two serious indictments in the United States, has committed crimes in 10 different countries.

Police: The young man was also blackmailed by an American senator

By Gia Flg and Msh Nosbaom | 23 April 2017

NEWS 2 — After News 2 reported yesterday that the US Justice Department is demanding the extradition of the hacker from Ashkelon and that two indictments have been filed against him in the United States, it turns out on Sunday that Israel has refused to extradite him.

News 2 learned that the Americans had turned to the Israeli Justice Ministry and asked to extradite the young man — but Israel refused. Despite the refusal, there is no rupture between the US and Israeli justice ministries.

The State Attorney’s Office in Israel has made it clear to their American counterparts that the hacker committed crimes in 10 different countries, but he will be tried in Israel. In any case, the Americans have not yet raised a white flag on their demand.

Tomorrow, the State Prosecutor’s Office is expected to file a serious indictment against the 18-year-old hacker, who is suspected of committing hundreds of threatening calls to Jewish institutions around the world. Yesterday, two serious indictments were filed against him in the United States.

The investigation revealed that the hacker from Ashkelon was blackmailing a Republican senator from the Republican Party in the United States. These suspicions will join the indictment that will be filed tomorrow in the Tel Aviv District Court.

According to the police, after a member of the Senate expressed himself in the media against the suspect in the context of the threat talks, the suspect called him and asked him to return him, and not to fine him every 72 hours. If he did not pay, he told him, he would incriminate him with his own methods.

After the senator did not respond to the threats and blackmail, the suspect began to buy drugs on the net and send them in envelopes to the house that had been extorted in an attempt to incriminate him.

Last night, News 2 reported that the details of his interrogation in Israel indicate that the young man allegedly offered his “threat services” for payment. For example, in his account on the network, an amount of close to two million shekels [US$552,669] was found in Bitcoin.

In the framework of the investigation, a student in one of the educational institutions in the United States who was examined on a particular day was examined and asked to reject it and contacted the suspect and paid him via the internet currency. In return, the latter allegedly contacted the applicant’s school, announced a “bomb” – and evacuated the institution and canceled the examination. The State Prosecutor’s Office will now have to decide whether to extradite the young man to the United States, and on Monday an indictment will be filed against him in Israel.

The affair began about three years ago, when an unknown person began calling Jewish institutions around the world, and in his conversations he warned about a bomb that had been buried. On one occasion he even caused emergency landing of El Al and Dalata aircraft.

At the end of a covert investigation involving the Lahav 433 and the FBI, the young man was arrested along with his father and interrogated on suspicion of involvement in the acts. At the time of the arrest, the police confiscated three of the son’s computers and the WiFi antenna he used. His father said he did not suspect his son when he bought the antenna.

After the father was released from detention, he claimed that “the world does not understand” that his son suffers from severe autism. “This child is different, he is unique,” he explained. “It is unique in all dimensions that people have seen.” The father noted that he himself had suffered from medical problems and that his son was also dealing with a medical problem. “I was exposed to thousands of very destructive chemicals,” he said. “I underwent three operations to remove tumors, and my son also has a tumor.” […]

Setting Aside Another Trumpian Myth: Busting Sex Trafficking Rings

The idea that there has been “an unprecedented number” of sex traffickers arrested since Trump took office has little basis in reality. Many who had tuned into Pedogate, including The New Nationalist (TNN), had some hopes a new sheriff would come to town post-election to deal with this evil. The reality is much different. As of this juncture, many of the Pizzagate actors are carrying on as usual. Meanwhile, after being used to score tawdry campaign points the whole Anthony Weiner story has been pretty much been deep-sixed.

There was a flurry of stories in the weeks following the inauguration that the Trumptards used to buttress their false persona of Trump and his team. However, closer scrutiny suggest these arrests mostly involve adult women selling sex and men trying to engage in consensual adult prostitution. These were part of annual regional John sting operations and were the result of investigations in the works long before Trump took office. Furthermore, they had nothing to do with federal law enforcement directives or activities.

There was a state-level bust in Virginia, where TNN has shown pedo activities are particularly rampant. The sting — a “To Catch a Predator”-style operation involving police posing online as a 13-year-old — began in October 2016 and ended in early February. Eleven people were arrested as part of the “five-month cyber-sting operation led by the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office Child Exploitation Unit in partnership with the Northern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.”

In other “big cases,” 478 people were arrested in a statewide California sting that included zero sex-trafficking arrests, according to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. A total of 142 men were arrested for attempting to pay consenting adult women for sexual activity. Thirty-six men were arrested for pimping. The rest of those arrested — 300 in total — were women taken in on prostitution charges.

In Texas, 178 men were arrested for soliciting prostitution from an undercover cop posing as a consenting adult sex worker. The stings were part of a nationwide “Johns Suppression Initiative” organized annually in Illinois by Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.

Four “pimps” and 12 people arrested on unspecified charges during a month-long Detroit operation, which concluded two days after Trump took office.

In other cases, the headlines are misleading. Here is a story: Crackdown on sex trafficking yields 29 arrests. Open the story and it reveals, “29 people have been arrested in connection with attempting to purchase “commercial sex.”

And so on and so on. These shadow language flamboozles are almost exclusively routine John and prostitution operations being called trafficking. In the major cases involving hidden from sight high profile pedos, such as the San Francisco case TNN reported on, the culprits get a slap on the wrist and confused news coverage.

TNN’s takeaway: There is no real evidence that serious enforcement against pedo trafficking rings is in play. About all that has transpired is that the high level pedos infesting the power structure have gotten a reminder that they are compromised and need to comply with the new administration and their Crime Syndicate handlers. Those in the public awakening to the reality of pedogate have been gas lighted (called crazy) and those who report on it labeled as “fake news.” Trump has done nothing to counter that MSM narrative. The one Trump official who seemed to grasp the conspiracy, General Flynn, is gone and facing jail time. Sadly, it’s simply pedo business as usual under Trump.

#PedogateSFO: Will Well-Connected Pedophile in California Politics Escape Jail Time?

It’s another case that vividly illustrates how politically and judicially connected child exploiters escape punishment and scrutiny. San Francisco Police nearly two years ago arrested prominent Democratic Party political consultant and attorney Enrique Pearce, 43, on six felony charges related to the possession and distribution of grotesquely sadistic child pornography involving the brutal rape and molestation of young children and infants, some as young as 6 months old.

Although evidence gathered by investigators also showed Pearce exhibiting signs of increasingly aggressive predatory behavior toward children in his community and was deemed a safety risk, a controversial retired judge “on temporary assignment” gave him just six months home detention.

And yet again, as with the 150-terabyte child pornography bust in Norway, the story is essentially ignored by the mainstream national news.

Who is Enrique Pearce?

Pearce is described as one of San Francisco’s “most successful and sometimes controversial political consultant,” a “shady” and “sleazy” operative connected to a wide range of top politicos. He is the founder of Left Coast Communications and is a well-known attorney.

He “catapulted to local political prominence after managing Matt Gonzalez’s campaign for mayor in 2003,” according to SF Weekly. “He earned a reputation as a skilled campaign logo and graphics maker, and piled up a string of victories, including the elections of Supervisor Jane Kim and school board members Hydra Mendoza and Sandra Fewer.”

Attorney Jane Kim represents District 6 on San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors. District 6 includes Chinatown, the rich and seedy Tenderloin neighborhood and is headquarters to high tech companies such as Twitter and Spotify. About 90% of the photos of Pearce on the Internet show him with Kim in social settings, which suggests they have more than just a consultant-client relationship.

Now, take a closer look at the photo to the left, and then look at the close up to the right. Notice the painting on the wall in between Kim and Pearce. See anything odd or familiar about it? If not, see James “Pizzagate” Alefantis’ “kill room” photo and the Podesta brothers’ sick taste in “art.”

Like the Podestas, Enrique Pearce (right) has disturbing taste in ‘art.’

Notably, on Aug. 30 — the day after Huma Abadin announced her separation from serial sexter Anthony Weiner — the San Francisco Chronicle revealed Kim’s ties to Hillary Clinton and California’s Supreme Court.

Another high-level matrimonial split has hit the Hillary Clinton campaign, this one involving the parting of top adviser Ann O’Leary and her husband, California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu — who sources have confirmed is now dating his onetime law student, San Francisco Supervisor Jane Kim.

O’Leary was recently named co-executive director of the Clinton-Kaine presidential transition team, with speculation that she may be headed for a job in the White House as a deputy chief of staff if Clinton is elected.

In addition to his ties to California State Assemblyman of 30 years Willie Brown, who has been described as the grease behind San Francisco’s machine politics, Pearce also had close ties to Chinatown’s “well-connected gatekeeper” Rose Pak. At the time of his arrest, Pearce was on the payroll of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee for $5,000 a month. Some suspect Lee’s payments are hush money for staging fake grassroots support for the “Run, Ed, Run” campaign.

Some years back, SF Weekly interviewed Pearce for a profile piece during which he offered a little psychopathic reveal:

It will be solace to some that Enrique Pearce does not sleep well at night. …

“I’ve been an insomniac ever since middle school,” said Pearce over brunch on a recent Sunday, where in between sips of a mimosa — just one before a brace of meetings with his clients, who range from longtime Oakland Rep. Barbara Lee to political neophytes marshaling a run for school board (where Kim got her start) — he noted the past night’s two hours’ sleep. …

The reporter presumed Pearce was up late at night working on campaign strategies. Now we know what he was really up to.

‘Do you perv?’

One possibly sleepless night in February 2015, Pearce, using the screen name “RedEntice,” chatted up a man on Yahoo! Messenger. Pearce wrote “sharing a boy with another man is really hot.” He told him he was “lookin to explore 8-12” and asked “do you perv?” Pearce then sent him two pornographic images — one of a boy around age 7 lying naked on a field of grass and the other of two boys, each about 12, lying on a bed with one fondling the other’s genitals. He asked the man to send a photo of “his dick” in return.

Rather than reciprocate, the man reported the incident to Central Police station. The department’s special victims unit traced the messages’ IP address to Pearce.

Search and Seizure

Police served a search warrant on May 7, 2015, at Pearce’s Tenderloin District flat located at 83 McAllister Street and his law offices at 901 Market Street. Officers seized two Apple laptops, two smartphones, an additional hard drive and a tablet computer, according to SF Gate news.

The devices revealed “images of sadomasochism and particularly young victims,” including one of a boy under 10 tied to a chair and being sexually abused. The video files include a boy, age 3 to 5, tied down while being raped by a man, toddlers being sodomized by adult males and young children under 8 years old being bound and raped.

In total, police found 4,902 images and almost 200 videos of child pornography on the two laptops.

The following is an excerpt from court documents. WARNING: Extremely graphic and horrific.

Investigators also found 115 photos of children that Pearce himself covertly took throughout the city, including on the steps of City Hall. Deputy District Attorney Alexis Fasteaus told the Chronicle the children were “unsuspecting minors in his preferred sexual group.”

SF Weekly: He took photos of boys in this age group out in public with his iPhone, according to court filings. He harbored fantasies of sharing such a child with another man, and he also stashed images of prepubescent boys in S&M acts and infants as young as “6 months old” in various sex acts, according to prosecutors.

Police arrested Pearce at the time of the search. He posted $250,000 bail the following day.

‘Safety Risk’

May 13, 2015: Superior Court Judge Robert Foley determined Pearce was a public safety risk, increased his bail to $400,000 and remanded him to custody. Pearce, appearing with his lawyer Eileen Burke, pleaded not guilty to six felony counts — five for child pornography charges and a sixth felony count for possession of stolen property involving a city parking meter found in his apartment. He posted the additional bail and was released.

June 12, 2015: Judge Ethan Schulman issued a protective order stating that Pearce, who appeared in court with his new lawyer Edwin Prather, must not have willful contact with underage youths and barred him from photographing them. Following the discover phase, the hearing was set for Aug. 25.

Aug. 25, 2015: What happened? News coverage of Pearce’s case dropped off the media radar. More than a year later, there was still no trial, prompting a local writer to post an article titled “Missing Person: Enrique Pearce.”

BREAD AND CIRCUS: Ah yes, his trial. The one that never came. After a series of court appearances following his arrest, Pearce’s trial was set for June 12. Nothing happened on that date and coverage of Enrique Pearce stopped for over a year. It took Lauren Chief Elk and I throwing Pearce’s name around like a Frisbee on Twitter, and a little trolling of San Francisco DA George Gascón, to conjure Pearce’s name into public record again. That yielded a “Stay Tuned” from Gascón, and the scheduling of an October 19 court date that … well, we don’t know. The media wandered off again, allowing Pearce to re-schedule to a future date that may or may not ever be named. So. If you see Mr. Pearce, know what he’s up to or just where he’s been passing his days, be sure to let us know so I can update this article on the whereabouts of an alleged child predator currently being sheltered by the state.

The Examiner published a brief stating that Pearce was set to appear in Superior Court on Sept. 22, 2016, but the status hearing was then rescheduled for Oct. 19.

Oct. 19, 2016: Status unknown.

Enter Retired Judge Navarro

During the 18 months since his initial arrest, Pearce either got extremely lucky or called in some favors — perhaps from Mayor Ed Lee or Jane Kim’s boyfriend, the California Supreme Court justice Liu. His locally high-profile case turned cold was handed over as a “temporary assignment” to Rene Navarro, a retired superior court judge from Santa Clara County who had a reputation for bypassing prosecutors and “plea bargaining” directly with defendants.

As SF Gate reported in 2013 on a case involving Navarro’s approach of telling a defendant what sentence he will deliver in exchange for a guilty plea:

Judges aren’t allowed to plea-bargain with criminal defendants — that’s reserved for the prosecutor. But the [California] Supreme Court said Thursday that judges can still resolve criminal cases by telling defendants what sentence they’ll face if they plead guilty to all charges. The unanimous ruling in a case from Santa Clara County defines the boundary between a prosecutor’s power to file charges and negotiate with the defense over their disposition, and a judge’s power to manage cases and impose sentences.

However, Navarro — who, as a retired judge on “temporary assignment,” faces no professional or political fallout — offered Pearce a mere wrist slap in exchange for a guilty plea to reduced charges.

Impeccable Timing

Dec. 23, 2016: The Friday before Christmas eve, a time when most reporters and justice department staffers are distracted by the holiday or on break, Pearce finally reappeared in court after a lengthy hiatus. Clearly, he pleaded guilty to reduced charges — three counts of child pornography, not the original five. In exchange, he negotiated a mere wrist slap. Only SF Gate offered the story (with no byline).

Enrique Pearce pleaded guilty to two counts of distributing child pornography, one count of buying or receiving stolen property [the parking meter], and one count of possession or control of child pornography 

As a result of the guilty plea, a judge is expected to sentence Pearce to six months in county jail, which may be served on home detention. Additionally, Pearce may also be sentenced to 5 months probation and may have to register as a sex offender for life, prosecutors said.

Sentencing guidelines provided that Pearce could serve only half of his 6-month home-detention time.

Spokesman for the D.A. Max Szabo told the Chronicle prosecutors had pressed Judge Navarro for a state prison sentence.

But under state rules, [prosecutors] didn’t get a say-so in the plea deal — Pearce could simply admit to all four charges against him in court once Navarro told him what the likely sentence would be. “Our hands are tied,” Szabo said.

Sentencing was scheduled for Jan. 25.

Battling Degeneracy

Jan. 25, 2017: Pearce’s sweetheart deal appeared to be done, sentencing just a formality. But San Francisco’s sheriff found a wrench and threw it at the twisted system.

SF Gate: Sheriff Vicki Hennessy is balking at enforcing a portion of the agreement that Pearce cut with a judge to plead guilty in exchange for a sentence of six months of home detention. The deal would have Pearce submit to monitoring with an ankle bracelet, and that’s the part the sheriff won’t sign off on.

People convicted of child pornography, perpetrators of domestic violence and some other categories of criminals don’t qualify for electronic monitoring in San Francisco, under Sheriff’s Department policies.

“We do not authorize electronic monitoring for charges in this case,” said sheriff’s spokeswoman Eileen Hirst. “The judge may check a box on a sentencing document indicating an alternative sentence to jail is approved, but the jail ultimately has the authority for protecting public safety and determining the most appropriate sentence for an individual.”

That forced Judge Rene Navarro to postpone Wednesday’s formal sentencing while Pearce’s attorney scrambled to figure out an alternative game plan.

March 10, 2017: Pearce’s third defense attorney, Douglas Horngrad, told the court he had arranged for a company called Intercept to supply an electronic ankle bracelet for Pearce and do the monitoring. But the D.A.’s office said the proposal “would not result in the accrual of custody credits” demanded by the severity of Pearce’s crimes “and would not be considered the equivalent of County Jail,” the Chronicle reports.

What’s next?

Pearce is due back in court on April 7 at which time he will “either keep his plea and serve the recommended six months in County Jail, or remove his plea and move toward a trail,” the San Francisco Examiner reports. Meanwhile, as of today, he’s still not listed on California’s sex-offender registry. The penalty and sanctions appears steadily Pearce eroding away.
