    President Trump went on a long rant of a press conference yesterday where he lashed out at the press, and praised the job that he's been doing as President. He claimed that his Administration is running "like a fine tuned machine" and blamed the notion of a chaotic White House on "fake news". This word comes on the heels of one of his appointees resigning or being fired (depending on which day you ask the President), another appointee withdrawing to avoid being voted down, and a third declining his appointment, referencing the offer as a "shit sandwich".  In the presser, President Trump also told a few whoppers, including one he has often repeated even though it has been thoroughly debunked.

    Alright, before the Trump fans have a conniption, the sub headline there is a joke. Despite what you might believe if you watched this broad stumble through her confirmation hearing, she has been educated by someone. Somewhere. Someone who probably isn't rushing to the forefront right now to claim her. I scrolled back to December 18th on the Calvin College Facebook page and there was no mention of their Alumnus poised for such a prestigious governmental position. Now in fairness, I have no idea what protocol is for this sort of thing, but I would think it might get a congratulations or at least a mention, but in this case there was none.

    These words rang out time and again from Donald Trump during the Presidential campaign. "We're going to build a wall," Trump would exhort his rally audiences. He would then ask them who is going to pay for the wall? "Mexico!", they would yell back. As President, Trump signed an executive order to get the wall started. This lead many people to proclaim that he was keeping his campaign promise. However, the President has asked Congress to pay for the wall with the promise that he would find a way to get the money from Mexico at some point in the future. Then the Administration floated the idea of a 20% tax on Mexican imports. Now before we get into that, let's discuss the notion of keeping promises.

    As Trump has said, the level of violence in Chicago is through the roof. Last month, they had 40 murders in 22 days. 6 people were shot at a memorial for another victim of the gun violence on Wednesday. Despite last years spike in the murder rate, this year has gotten off to an even more violent start, with more murders-to-date than the city had seen in nearly 20 years. It's sad to see what is going on there, and President Trump has even talked about sending federal law enforcement to clean the mess up. One would think that with all of this violence and mayhem, the President wouldn't feel the need to invent murders that didn't happen. One would be wrong.

    Trump's Voter Fraud Claims

    Back during the election process Donald Trump brought this up, and my Facebook friends who supported him started beating me over the head with this study from the PEW Research Center. Why? Because despite being a Republican, I reject the notion of widespread voter fraud. So Trump brings up the conclusion of this study, and it starts a chain reaction among his supporters. "Try to deny it now, Steve." At the time, I told the lovely Ramona that this is what truly bothers me about Trump. I expect the average guy on the street to misunderstand what some of these studies are saying, but for a Presidential Candidate this is pretty basic stuff. So, allow me to lay out my case again why Trump is wrong and I was right, and this time I will have a little affirmation from those in the know.

Man uses website Mocospace to rape vicitim

Written by Mona.

People do things every day to protect themselves from potential harm. They lock their doors, their windows, buy guard dogs, leave lights on outside their homes. There are so many ways that people attempt to secure their environments from potential predatory behavior from strangers.

Yet everyday thousands of people will go online from inside their cozy homes and they will unlock a different kind of door for strangers to enter through. There is nothing more harmful than a false sense of security in a situation where being clandestine is commonly expected.

NY- In May of 2010, on a Sunday afternoon, a 24 year old woman from the website Mocospace.com answered an internet post regarding employment. The "ad"/forum post was looking for a secretary who could work Monday through Friday. The job paid $600.00 an hour and a car would be provide.

When she arrived at her destination, a 53 year old man named Richard Bailey greeted her. He asked her to follow him upstairs to the second floor. He told her it led to his "office".  The woman followed him and when she got up the stairs she began to feel uneasy. The floor was covered in garbage and didn't look like an "office". It looked like an empty apartment. When she began to feel like something was wrong, it was too late. She told Bailey that she was going to leave, but he wasn't going to allow her to go so easily.

For an unspecified amount of time, the woman was at his mercy. He attacked her and then violated her in terrifying and painful ways. She was vaginally and anally raped. Her assault was brutal and painful to say the least.

However, this wasn't Bailey's first sexual offense. In July 1998, he was charged by authorities in Pennsylvania with charges including indecent assault and corruption of a minor. Bailey was on probation when he met, raped and sodomized the woman he met on mocospace.com

Bailey was a registered level one sex offender, serving a six-year term of probation for a sex offense conviction

He had been charged with first-degree rape and second-degree criminal sex act for the attack. Bailey pleaded guilty, in a plea deal in that case, to a lesser charge of sexual misconduct.

A judge sentenced him to six years of probation and then classified him as just a level one sex offender. Level one offenders are considered the lowest risks to commit another sex crime.

March 3, 2011, Bailey plead guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual abuse. He had originally been charged by a grand jury with first-degree rape and predatory sexual assault.

As part of his plea deal, prosecutors have agreed to recommend that the Judge make his sentences in the two separate cases concurrent. However, prosecutors reserved their right to ask for consecutive sentences on the sex abuse charges which could result in a 14-year prison term for Bailey.

“He understands that he could get up to 14 years if the court gives him the maximum sentence,” defense attorney Christopher Privateer said. “He has agreed to take a plea to the two (sex abuse charges) and take his chance at sentencing.”

As a result of his plea, prosecutors will drop the rape charge and a criminal sex act count.

In December, Bailey was convicted after a trial for violating the terms of his state sex offender registration and has been awaiting sentencing on that conviction.

Bailey’s sex offender violation conviction stemmed from his use of a computer without telling his probation officer.
