Trump-loving anti-LGBT bigot kept teen stepsister shackled in basement dungeon: police

Published

on

Plenty of people have ranted against Target’s transgender restroom policy on Facebook — but at least one of those social media users typed their polemic as his own 13-year-old stepsister was shackled downstairs in a basement dungeon.

Esten Ciboro and his father, Timothy Ciboro, were arrested after the girl managed to escape last week while her alleged captors went jogging, reported the Toledo Blade.

A neighbor spotted the girl, who was carrying several bags, and assumed she was a runaway, but she managed to gain her trust and discovered the girl had been chained to a support beam in her basement for more than a year as punishment for wetting the bed.

Timothy and Esten Ciboro were each charged with kidnapping and child endangerment.

After her escape and rescue, the girl told investigators she had lived with her father since her mother had left her and two siblings and ran off to Las Vegas.

She said she’d been chained by the ankle to the support beam for various periods of time, including once for as long as a year, and fed spoiled scraps of food and forced to use a bucket of ammonia as a toilet.

Lucas County Children Services investigated the family in 2014, after the girl was spotted eating French fries from a garbage can in the park, but found no signs of abuse in the home and left the girl there.

She and two other children were removed from the North Toledo home and placed in foster care after Ciboro and his son were arrested.

The 27-year-old Esten Ciboro’s Facebook page reveals an apparent admiration for Donald Trump, and a strong opposition to transgender people using restrooms that correspond with their gender identity, reported LGBTQ Nation.

“For those unaware: Target will be allowing men in the girls’ restrooms of its stores and will also allow women in the boys’ restrooms of its stores- all to support queerism and confusion,” Esten Ciboro wrote May 10, before his teenage stepsister was rescued from the basement dungeon in which he’s accused of imprisoning her.

He and his father both shared a concern about satanic influence, with the younger Ciboro posting his concerns about a local megachurch’s supposed affiliation with the occult.

The elder Ciboro posted concerns on his own Facebook page about supposed satanic symbolism on Monster energy drink’s packaging.

The 53-year-old Ciboro also shared quotes from conservative activist and psychologist James Dobson and viral posts describing President Barack Obama as a socialist.

The three younger children were homeschooled, and the 13-year-old girl said she had not attended school since first grade.

Timothy Ciboro said from jail, where he and his son are being held without bond, that the two younger children were extraordinary because they cooked and cleaned, but he said the teenage girl refused to participate.

“She just didn’t want to do things with us, she just didn’t,” he said. “I don’t know why, I can’t answer that. I love her and I loved her for her. I didn’t think anything less.”

He insisted he loved all of his children, and he explained the basis for his parenting.

“I miss my babies with all my heart,” Timoth Ciboro said. “I want them to do right, that’s the way they were raised. If they have any questions, all they have to do is open the Bible and they will have all the answers.”

Republican Kevin McCarthy gets taken down by former top GOP colleague

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
