As I ran for public office, I was befuddled by my opponent’s platform for affordable childcare — it seemed so counter to their overall legislative record. They had just passed H.5, sending Article 22 to the voters to enshrine death and destruction in the Vermont Constitution and had passed legislation to expand access to euthanasia services. There were also significant legislative efforts to align Vermont households with the Agenda 2030 climate Accord. When I take a holistic view first at the global Marxist efforts of the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), and World Economic Forum (WEF), and second at national Marxist efforts being pushed by the current administration and put this in context with recent and new Vermont legislation, I came to a hypothesis: Efforts to expand childcare in Vermont are directly aligned with efforts to groom children from birth for pedophilia. In this article, I will distill global and national efforts that set up what we are seeing in Vermont and how these efforts lean towards grooming of our precious children at a very young age.
Global Trafficking and Grooming
Dr. Robert Malone recently published a substack entitled Normalizing Sex as Entertainment  digging into a hypothesis for why the push to groom children. Essentially there is a class of new rich that have so much money they can buy anything they want. Anything. A number of these billionaires have shown up on the passenger manifest for Epstein Island where trafficking of underage children was a regular occurrence.
Australian Senator Malcolm Roberts recently published an article and addressed the Australian Senate about the WHO’s efforts to standardize sexual education. This framework is called International Guidance on Sexuality Education, produced as part of UN Education 2030 and counter-signed by UNICEF. To quote Senator Roberts, “Quite frankly, the Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe is a ‘rapey’ document that reads like the mind of a child-fiddling psychopath given control of public health.”
On July 4, a new movie Sound of Freedom will be shown in theaters about the human trafficking crisis. More than two million children a year are trafficked around the world, and we have seen a surge in trafficking in this country with the open borders. The movie is based on the true story of Tim Ballard, a former US government agent turned vigilante, who embarks on a dangerous mission to rescue hundreds of children from sex traffickers.
The UN / International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) published The 8 March Principles for a Human Rights-Based Approach to Criminal Law Prescribing Conduct Associated with Sex, Reproduction, Drug Use, HIV, Homelessness and Poverty. This document looks to decriminalize pedophilia and a number of other current crimes on a global basis.
Trafficking and Grooming in The United States
My mother-in-law loved to do word searches. Pride Month has been happening for over 50 years, but was first federally recognized by President Bill Clinton in 1999. A word search within the statement PRIDE MONTH finds the word DEMON right in the middle staring right at us. Over the decades, the grooming of children has become much more obvious.
In July of 2007, in a speech to Planned Parenthood, then senator Barack Obama called for sexual education of kindergarten children. Barack Obama’s Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings founded GLSEN, an organization that has been promoting dangerous sexual practices to children. GLSEN has received funding from the retailer Target for a number of years. And we’re surprised when Target brings out a line of baby and infant transgender clothing.
Senator Ted Cruz recently questioned Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security, on the use of colored wrist bracelets on illegal immigrants crossing into the United States. The wristbands represent the debt the individuals have with the cartel for entry into the United States. The current administration is facilitating slavery through the open borders policy, with many of those children and adults entering the country being bound for sexual slavery to pay off the debts to the cartel.
Kari Lake recently shared an interview between Jeff Zink and Tina Peters on her Truth Social account about one of these illegals. In the interview Jeff discusses an eight-year-old child that he brought to the hospital for medical evaluation. The treating physician reported this precious eight-year-old had been raped by a minimum of sixty-seven different men after the cartel killed her father.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, in a recent 60 Minutes interview, defended calling Democrats Pedophiles. The Democrats continue to push the Marxist agenda of the World Economic Forum, and many RINOs join alongside the Democrats in supporting this agenda. Several years ago, there was a scandal known as Pizzagate that the fake news would like you to believe was a conspiracy theory. Research by Liz Crokin, dating back to 2016 when the John Podesta emails were released, dove deep into pedophilia at the highest levels of government, entertainment, and business, where pizza and other terms were code names for certain types of sexual desires with minors. She has a number of articles about this on the Liz Crokin Report. In the prosecution of Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted of grooming and trafficking girls, flight logs of Jeffrey Epstein’s Lolita Express were made public and include a number of high-level government officials and Hollywood personalities.
This is coupled with the United Nations desensitizing children by teaching them about sex at a very young age — masturbation for preschoolers and teaching elementary school students to have sex and use pornography. The Biden administration is supporting Agenda 2030, and it appears our educators and legislators in Vermont are setting the stage to follow right along.
Vermont’s Article 22 was promoted as providing constitutional protection for abortion in the state: “That an individual’s right to personal reproductive autonomy is central to the liberty and dignity to determine one’s own life course and shall not be denied or infringed unless justified by a compelling State interest achieved by the least restrictive means.” Anyone that reads this text of Article 22 and applies critical thinking can see that the vagueness of the amendment allows far more than just abortion to be protected. As we saw Vermont Senate Bill S.37 move through the Senate and House this year, we saw significant legal protections put in place for sterilization and mutilation of children under the guise of gender-affirming care. This was a continuation of the Article 22 agenda.
Transgenderism is a mental illness well described in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-5-TR). Only in recent years has it been promoted, as the medical and pharmaceutical industries have found it to be a multi-billion-dollar business opportunity. We see children too young to marry, buy cigarettes or alcohol, but they are old enough to decide that the biological gender they were born with is incorrect, and this is an autonomous decision that they alone get to make without parental input according to the Vermont Constitution. Washington State is pushing Senate Bill 5599 through to ”protect” transgender children from intolerant parents that believe the science that there are only two genders and treatment should be given for gender dysphoria, not making irreversible mutilation and sterilization of your body. While Vermont has not yet set up the shelters for children seeking gender-affirming care, the laws are being crafted to give individuals of any age autonomy and protection to seek such treatment.
It is not that much further a leap to read into the Article enshrining pedophilia as a protected right under the article, particularly when children are groomed (manipulated) into finding pedophilia normal and offering consent. Both the support for decriminalizing mutilation of minors in the name of gender affirming care and legalizing pedophilia aligns with the UN / International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) recommendations discussed previously.
In June of 2021, by an 8-1 vote, The Essex Westford School District’s school board adopted a new equity policy, under which schools would “use anti-racist and LGBTQIA+ affirming perspectives to inform curriculum decisions starting in Pre-K.” This has resulted in science and health classes for elementary age students to use the terms “Person who produces sperm in place of boy, male, and assigned male at birth” and “Person who produces eggs in place of girl, female and assigned female at birth.”
Vermont Representative Art Peterson was one voice of 27 against the H.177 childcare legislation that passed 118-27 on the last day of the session. In an op-ed about his vote, he said “I don’t feel it’s the role of government to get this deeply involved in the raising of children … Child care is not the state’s business and we should stay out of it at all cost.”
When we look at progressive legislation, a key research element is to follow the money. Let’s Grow Kids is a PAC in Vermont focused on Early Childhood legislation. This PAC receives national money from Alliance for Early Success. Donors to Alliance for Early Success include The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is also a significant donor to the World Health Organization, and The Buffett Early Childhood Fund, chaired by Susan A. Buffett, an abortion activist and daughter of Warren Buffett.
With the recent voting history of Vermont’s progressive legislature and grooming we’re seeing in Vermont schools, coupled with the extreme sexualization of children at a global, national and local level, expanding child care support in the state to expand the grooming of even younger children seems to fit the pattern of behavior of the legislature and school system. Current actions by school boards and school administrations across the state normalize demonic activity. Too few legislators share Representative Peterson’s view that child care is not the state’s business. Most appear to view it as children are the state’s and not the parents’ business.
Where do we draw the line to protect the children? In Matthew 23, Jesus calls out hypocrisy against the religious teachers. I see direct parallels between the hypocrisy of the religious leaders Jesus called out and today’s government leaders. We see little action against the fentanyl overdoses of the state, and major legislative efforts around abortion, sterilization, and euthanasia, yet “concern” about suicide. I don’t buy the false concern for gun suicide when there are far greater evils stealing our children. I see a similar pattern of hypocrisy around the noble notion of affordable child-care legislation. Child care was a big thrust of my opponents in the last election for state representative, yet the overall votes they cast in the recent legislative session portends a radical Marxist agenda that supports death and destruction, not life. As concerned parents, grandparents, and citizens, we need to look beyond the rhetoric of these politicians and look at the actions to determine if the actions are altruistic or nefarious. We also need to observe the global Marxist agenda that is openly promoted by the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, the World Health Organization, et. al. and overlay that with the actions of the current Biden administration and the radical progressive administration in Montpelier. As Matthew 7:15-16 says: Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits.
Call to Action
Parents, this is a wake-up call. There were many times researching and writing this article that my blood was boiling and/or I felt like vomiting. We know the evil perpetrated by the world’s elite, with millions of children trafficked around the world. The World Economic Forum and United Nations are very public in Agenda 2030, and this includes desensitizing and grooming our children to feed the beast. We need to take control of our school boards, and more importantly, we need to take personal responsibility for caring and educating our children and not cede to the state that does not have their best interests in mind. Keep our trust in Jesus, for as he said: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
