Facebook becomes the central nexus of human-smuggling cartel operations
(Natural News) Want to know what’s driving the border surge?  The root cause that Kamala Harris says she’s looking for?  Ask her buddies at Facebook.  They’re the ones turbocharging the big-dollar human-smuggling operations, through the unchecked freedom to use their platform.  Too bad about you, President Trump — you’re the bad guy who’s deplatformed, not them.

(Article by Monica Showalter republished from

So charges Rep. Kat Cammack, a Florida Republican, who has laudably made this problem an issue.

Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., sent a scathing letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Wednesday for trying to “silence” conservative views on his platform while allowing human smugglers and cartels to “openly” operate on the social media site.

The Florida freshman, fresh off a visit to the southern border, accused Facebook and other social media companies of perpetuating the border crisis by providing a means for drug cartels and coyotes to post paid advertisements that encourage migrants to cross into the United States illegally.

“Facebook’s role in the crisis at the border is urgent and must be addressed immediately,” Cammack wrote Zuckerberg in a letter first obtained by Fox News.

She’s right.  I wrote about what she describes in her letter and materials last April 6 here, and I can see that in her materials, she cites the same Facebook page, Inmigrantes Centroamericanos, that I did, where I went through it post by post.

Facebook makes huge money from this kind of advertising made by human-smuggling rackets, and their role is vital.  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is openly pro–open borders, so it might just be intentional.

As I cited in my piece, from the research of the Federation for Immigration Reform, Joe Biden put out some radio ads to dissuade migrants from patronizing cartel human-smuggling rackets, but the vast majority of would-be illegals don’t get their information from radio; they get it from social media.  That’s the root cause that Biden border surge czar Kamala Harris is still looking for.

And it’s not just human-smugglers, promising “100% safe” illegal journeys breaking into America on Facebook and other social media.  It’s the cartel drug crime operations, too.

Here’s a horrifying report from the Alliance to Counter Crime Online, a 501©(3) non-profit, which investigates these things:

    Mexican drug cartels and other violent criminal gangs like MS-13 have weaponized social media, just like ISIS, using the Internet as a literal force multiplier to intimidate, stalk and extort their victims.

    Much like Hollywood celebrities, Mexican cartels have vast social media followings. The notorious Sinaloa Cartel, for example, has more than 88,000 followers on Twitter, while Los Zetas, an uber-violent Mexican cartel that has broadcast murders on YouTube, has a Facebook universe with approximately 47,000 connected accounts like these.

    To some extent, young, net-savvy criminals use social media the same way as young people everywhere: To document and brag about their lives. Instagram and Twitter posts featuring cash, gold plated guns, luxury cars and even pet tigers are a powerful recruitment tool for jobless young men who see the gangster life as a path out of drudgery.

    According to The Dark Side of Social Media: The Case of the Mexican Drug War, social media also provides strategic value for criminal cartels, allowing them to disseminate intimidating messages to the public and authorities on a far wider scale than they ever had before, and to broadcast warnings and threats to rivals and potential rivals. Visuals on cartel accounts range from love letters to decapitated bodies to gruesome videos of beheadings and torture. Drug cartels and gangs also send threatening messages directly to government authorities and civilians alike, using encrypted systems like WhatsApp and Facebook messenger.

    Activities in cyberspace drive violence in real life. In one horrifying 2014 event, a Mexican physician who often tweeted about the drug war was herself murdered, with her killers using her own Twitter account to announce her death and broadcast grisly images of her dead body. This violence has often spilled into the United States, in particular with MS-13 using the internet to identify victims, and lure them to their death.

Seriously.  Twitter banned President Trump but still has the actual Sinaloa cartel on its site?  Facebook still has a page for Los Zetas with 47,000 members, but it just did its pious “tribunal” thing to silence President Trump?

Care to be sick?  Who needs the dark web when they’ve got Twitter and Facebook, covering their backs and letting them operate openly?  Cartels and human-smuggling rackets don’t need the dark web when they’ve got Facebook happy to serve them.  And Facebook is protected by the Democrats, don’t forget that, because the cartels sure as heck don’t.

Cammack is a very young freshman congresswoman who has hit the bulls-eye on a major issue that hasn’t gotten any attention.  She is from Florida, home of all things good, sanctuary state from Joe Biden’s lunacy-America.

Where is the Republican leadership to support her in her bid to shut down these evil merchants of misery?

It’s true that the news is just out, but she needs all the muscle of the GOP rallying behind her instead of fighting about Liz Cheney (who should simply be thrown out with hands dusted off) because her issue is big, significant, the actual key to why there’s a border surge.  Where’s Kamala Harris on this, since we know she’s not at the border, looking for all those root causes?  Here’s a root cause for her: shut these monsters down, and sanction their Facebook enablers, or watch these surges multiply.

Facebook a hub for sex trafficking, Twitter a haven for pedophilia

(Natural News) The social media platforms that millions of Americans have become addicted to for their daily entertainment are bastions of child abuse, it turns out.

Most of the world’s sex trafficking activity occurs on Facebook now. And Twitter, as we have reported on in the past, is a magnet for pedophiles who use it to exchange illegal photos and videos of their victims.

According to the Human Trafficking Institute’s 2020 Federal Human Trafficking Report, the vast majority of online recruitment for sex trafficking occurs on Mark Zuckerberg’s digital baby, where perverts lure children into the sex trade.

“The internet has become the dominant tool that traffickers use to recruit victims, and they often recruit them on a number of very common social networking websites,” says Human Trafficking Institute CEO Victor Boutros.

“Facebook overwhelmingly is used by traffickers to recruit victims in active sex trafficking cases.”

Data from the past two decades shows that 30 percent of all victims identified in federal sex trafficking cases since the year 2000 were recruited online.

In the U.S. in the year 2020, 59 percent of online recruitment of identified victims in active cases took place on Facebook alone. And a whopping 65 percent of identified child sex trafficking victims recruited on social media were recruited specifically through the Facebook platform.

In a statement to CBS News, Facebook tried to deny its involvement in child sex trafficking, calling the practice “abhorrent.” Facebook also denies allowing child sex trafficking on its platform, claiming that it has “policies and technology” in place to prevent it.

It would appear, however, that Facebook is much busier censoring conservative free speech and medical/health free speech than it is protecting children against being recruited into the sex trade. Facebook’s priorities are a bit off, in other words.

Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat and WeChat are all used to recruit child sex slaves

Facebook also offered up a canned statement about how it works with “safety groups” and “anti-trafficking organizations” to address and report all cases of child exploitation to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Instagram and Snapchat are right behind Facebook for being the next most frequently cited platforms for recruiting child sex slaves, along with WeChat.

According to the trafficking report, most of the people recruited on social media into the sex trade are children, and of these a majority are female – though there are many young men who are also trafficked.

Since 2013, the internet has been the most common place to recruit victims, though the street, stores, and cults are also prominent targets.

“These data do not reflect the prevalence of online solicitation in sex trafficking schemes beyond those federally prosecuted,” the report explains.

“To be sure, the internet is implicated in many sex trafficking situations, but the high numbers of federal prosecutions involving internet solicitation are equally if not more reflective of the strategies law enforcement use to investigate these crimes.”

Among the most common tactics for recruiting victims are fraudulent job offers and feigned romances. Sex traffickers will usually identify existing vulnerabilities in their victims and prey on those.

“A lot of times we imagine that traffickers are these large group syndicates or networks, exploiting a huge number of victims,” warns Boutros.

“But actually most traffickers are not operating as an organized crime enterprise. It is mostly individual traffickers that are operating individually and often exploiting a small handful of victims at a time.”

The report included data on 602 victims who were identified in active sex trafficking cases for which the details of their recruitment were known.
