Josh Duggar is missing from treatment center: report

Published

on

There’s a mystery brewing in the Quiverfull world of the Duggar family. According to Suzanne Titkemeyer, “Calulu,” who runs the daily administration at the spiritual abuse recovering website, No Longer Quivering, the eldest son Josh Duggar seems to be missing from the rehab facility where he is supposed to be receiving treatment. Josh may not be at the Rockford, Illinois treatment facility connected with North Love Baptist Church.

Today marks one full week since Josh Duggar was reported to have entered a rehab facility by the name of Reformers Unanimous, which is a facility that his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have supported many times in the past. The statement by his parents did not name the treatment center that Josh was attending.

Many of the media outlets seized upon Reformers Unanimous as the the treatment facility because of Jim Bob and Michelle’s involvement with the center. That, combined with the flight records of the Duggar‘s private plane showing a late night trip to Rockford, Illinois with a ten minute turn-around time between arriving at the Rockford airport and the aircraft departing for a return to the Springdale airport seemed to indicate that RU was where Josh would be serving out his long term ‘treatment’ for sex and pornography addiction.

There is only one big problem with that assumption. Not a soul in Rockford, Illinois has actually spotted Josh Duggar among the individuals receiving treatment at RU. He hasn’t been seen coming or going from any of the mandatory church services at North Love Baptist Church. This is especially odd considering the rules at Reformers Unanimous posted on their website claim it would be a mandatory part of everyone’s recovery process at RU. There has been absolutely no sightings of Josh anywhere in Rockford or RU. No sightings at all.

In this media-driven world it’s likely if Josh were at Reformers Unanimous someone would have talked to the press, or sold a story to the tabloids about Josh’s first week in rehab. Not a whisper thus far.

Of course it’s always possible that the staff at Reformers Unanimous are waiving this requirement for Josh. Considering the notoriety of the Duggar family and what Josh has publicly admitting to, they could be perhaps allowing him not to attend the church services and Bible studies in order to shield him from the press and a curious public. Or they’re taking him in a private vehicle instead of the RU van, secreting him into a secluded part of the church where he would not be seen by the curious gawkers.

There are other possibilities. Josh Duggar could have left, checked himself out and returned home to his wife Anna and his family. He could have refused to enter the facility too. The only word we have that he is in a rehab is the statement on the Duggar family website. Josh Duggar could be sitting on the sofa in his basement playing Xbox and eating pizza while everyone believes he’s away.

But there is another possibility. According to publicly available flight plans on file with the FAA on August 27th, the Duggar plane went to Paragould, Arkansas and stayed much of that day before flying back to Springdale. There is no clear reason for the Duggars to be in Paragould. No known friends live there, it is across the state from their home and they own no businesses or land in Paragould.

There are a few ministries and Christian-based therapy places in the Paragould area. Most treat women with chemical addictions. One of the places where it is possible Josh might be at in Paragould is the Grace Mission Bible Training Center. Grace lists addiction treatment as one of the services they offer.

Suzanne asks a good question at No Longer Quivering: So where in the world is Josh? What type of ‘rehab’ treatment facility is he attending? Did the family just simply place him again with a ‘family friend’ to do construction as his penance? We all know that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar never miss an opportunity to publicize their perfect family, so why all the secrecy as to his exact location?

Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path. Today, via a website called No Longer Quivering, she publishes resources for women leaving the movement.

"You guys weren't involved in that at all were you?" the officer asked Vance Benton and his son in the footage, which was shared by the Daily Mail.

Trump has shrunk the White House entirely around himself: ‘It is a government of one’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has cleared out all the constraints in his White House, which he's running much like the Trump Organization.

The president has chased away four national security advisers, three chiefs of staff, three directors of oval office operations and five communications directors -- an unprecedented amount of turnover for a modern president — and finds himself surrounded by compliant staffers and aides, reported Politico.

“It is a government of one in the same way in which the Trump Organization was a company of one,” said one former senior administration official.

Whistleblower forced to come forward because intel officials consider Trump a ‘security risk’: CNN’s Avlon

Published

on

Addressing a bombshell report from the Washington Post that President Donald Trump made a "promise" to an unidentified world leader that "prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community," CNN's John Avlon said it was a sign intel officials regard the president as a "security risk."

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Avlon noted that the whistleblower is a Trump appointee which makes formal complaint all that much more alarming.

"A Trump appointee thinks this is of such concern that Congress needs to know," Berman began. "The question is: what was the promise, to whom, and what does it say about the president's notion of intelligence?"
