‘Smallville’ star arrested by FBI for ties to secretive sex-trafficking cult

Published

on

An actress best known for her role on the Superman-themed series “Smallville” has been arrested by the FBI for her alleged role as a recruiter in a secretive “sex cult” that reportedly trafficked women.

Washington’s NBC4 reported Friday that actress Allison Mack was arrested and will appear in federal court in Brooklyn later in the day in relation to the government’s case against Keith Raniere, the co-founder of the “Nxivm” (pronounced “Nexium”) cult.

Billed as a self-help group, Nxivm, under Raniere’s alleged lead, included a “barbaric system in which women were told the best way to advance was to become a ‘slave’ overseen by ‘masters.'”

Female members, who were reportedly branded, “also were expected to have sex with him and do menial chores for masters, and to keep the arrangement a secret or be publicly humiliated,” the federal complaint against Raniere, who was arrested in Mexico and extradited to Texas last month, reads.

Mack’s fellow “Smallville” star Kristin Kreuk was also accused of using her celebrity to recruit women into the cult — a claim she denied in a Twitter post last month.

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
