Do you hear that? It is the sound of silence. It is a deafening silence. It is the sound of corruption in Mohave County, Arizona. Here is a link to the only story published online about the outcome of a three year old case involving the misuse of public funds by officials in Colorado City, Arizona, all members of the FLDS. The only coverage was in the San Angelo Standard Times this week. You see, no one in Mohave County or in Utah cares. Nobody else cares about the corruption up there.
Here is a link to the blog post I made months after the crimes were revealed to the public in 2010. It includes a list of items bought using the fire district funds. Please look at it. It includes items like diapers, chocolate, hams and bedding. Yet there is no kitchen and no sleeping quarters in the volunteer fire department. I assume there are no babies there either. Tax preparation software is on the list but fire districts don't pay taxes, they collect them!
Where are the feds? How can these men continue to get away with this? Let me ask a simple question of anyone reading this right now: If your city manager or other public official stole tens of thousands of dollars from the funds designated for the operation of your city's fire department, do you really believe the investigation would last three years and result in dropping the charges from felony to misdemeanors and probation for the culprit?
I said three years ago that they would drag this out for a long time and nothing would ever come of it, not because there was no crime but because the prosecutors and the judges in Mohave County are corrupt to the polygamists.

My friend Flora spoke yesterday at a meeting of the Lake Havasu Republican Women's group about Arizona House Bill 2648, and why it is so desperately needed, especially in its original form. I'm going to save that topic for another post and concentrate today on some other information that she has just shared about the children still trapped in the FLDS. You can find a write up on her appearance here.
As most of the readers of this blog know by now, convicted child rapist Warren Steed Jeffs has had all the children of the FLDS faithful on a beans and water only diet for months now.
Many people keep asking me "why?" the best answer I have for anyone is that Warren Steed Jeffs is a sadistic sociopath with a deviant sexual attraction to children, who simply enjoys making them suffer. After all, this is a man who has made every concerted effort to model himself after the cartoon character from "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas." He has banned the color red anywhere, forbidden the celebration of Christmas, closed the community zoo, ordered every pet dog and cat his community rounded up and slaughtered in a pit, forbidden the FLDS children from having any toy or bike, and ordered them all to quit going to school and concentrate on working for him, all day every day. They are ostensibly homeschooled. I think he also very much enjoys the idea that he can manipulate other men who follow him into his own perversions.
If the beans and water only diet, twice a day, weren't enough to make you concerned for the little ones of the FLDS, maybe you can give a hill of beans about what is happening to them, when you read this next bit of information from inside.
It seems when Warren ordered all the loyal members in good standing of the FLDS to stop having any marital relations, at the same time, he ordered all the fathers of the FLDS to start supervising their children's bath times, alone.
As sick as it may sound, last year when Warren ordered his members to stop all marital relations, and forbade men and their "wives" from any physical contact except for handshakes lasting no longer than 3 seconds, one of the first thoughts Flora and I both had was, 'Oh G-d, the children will now be the target of all those men's sexual urges, since boys and prepubescent girls do not get pregnant.' What more could Warren want than to do everything in his power to make sure the FLDS men follow his own perversions? What more validation could he want?
Before anyone says, 'I know plenty of normal daddies who bathe their children who aren't perverts...' Me too! But this is polygamy, and since this is FLDS polygamy, it's polygamy on steroids. Never mind all this talk of blended families here in the outside world, this is the FLDS world, where men are routinely kicked out of the FLDS, excommunicated and every woman they had called their "wife" is then reassigned to another man, along with all her children.
In the FLDS world, the bishop can knock on your door in the middle of the night, inform you that the prophet has had a revelation that you are unworthy and no longer hold the priesthood, and order you to leave everything you own and get out of town, immediately. The women are then told they will be 'given' to new husbands who are worthy and do still hold the priesthood. In the FLDS world, 5 women with 12-20 children could be moving into a new house, with a new "husband and father" overnight. These children are now told that G-d has changed their DNA to match their new father's. Now you have a "daddy" who is bathing 12-20 children every night that he is unrelated to. Tell me, would you be comfortable with this plan for your own children?
I had a message from a fellow activist in my inbox when I came home from dinner last night. It read:
"Please call the Salt Lake or St. George DFS and Arizona [Mohave County], and tell them you know from reliable sources. Ask them what is and can be done about the FLDS children that Warren has mandated to eat only beans and water for breakfast and dinner without any lunch. They'll ask you for names and addresses so they can investigate. Tell them in your own words, that even though you don't have those specifics, you are sure it has been and is still going on. I've had two women who have left tell us that it is true. The children are still being moved and re-located so often that it's near impossible to know who and where they are any more, but someone has to protect these kids from this abuse.
Warren has definitely dictated this daily diet and order, and many have said it is true, not just hear-say."
Can you make a couple of calls today? Can you ask child welfare authorities in Arizona and Utah what they are going to do about the nutritional deprivation of these FLDS children? Can you at least make them a little uncomfortable after 100 years of ignoring the suffering of these children? If they ask you who you are, you might try telling them, "I'm someone who gives a hill of beans!"

The spiritual abuse of children in the FLDS continues. They are blamed for Warren Jeffs' sins! They are told that they aren't "Keeping Sweet," or praying enough, or being righteous enough while this monster sociopath abuses them with a beans and water only diet, right from his prison cell here in Texas! Like any two-bit organized crime boss, Jeffs is still pulling all the strings of the members of the FLDS in Arizona and Utah. The only grocery store in the town has been shut down, and all the FLDS members deemed worthy enough to be a part of the New United Order, are given an approved shopping list to go by when they go to St. George to buy their groceries. These are then brought back to The Crick and turned over to the community's storehouse, and each family is in turn given back what the leadership decides they need. Most families have gardens to supplement their food supplies but I imagine the pickings are slime this time of year. So if the leadership isn't giving them enough flour, meat fruits or vegetables to feed a family, but instead a supply of dried beans to feed their children, I'm not even sure how a mother with a conscience could cheat the system. The day Ruby Jessop's children were rescued from Colorado City, there were cars wrapped around the storehouse for blocks. It was Warren's brother, Lyle Jeffs' birthday, and they were holding "A Smile With Lyle Day," at the storehouse. Each car was slowly pulling up to greet Lyle, get a smile from him, and a treat. The treat consisted of two marshmallows and an apple slice on a plate, for each car. I suppose if I were living on a rationed diet I might have been really excited to wait in line for a chance at a bite of apple or marshmallow, too. I know while I was on the Bean Fast last week that could have excited me. Imagine being in that line with a car load of kids and deciding who gets a bite! If anyone wonders why I call the FLDS an organized crime family, help yourself to the facts here in Texas- Here:http://www.scribd.com/doc/114779525/YFZAFFIDAVITFORSEARCHANDSEIZURE-pdf
And here's a taste of what you'll find in Texas' latest case against the FLDS organized crime family, including the practice of Bigamy, which is Texas' anti-polygamy statute...
Affiant will establish in said affidavit that Affiant has learned and believes that the violations of the Texas Penal Code have occurred at Suspected Place described in Section II above, namely violations of the following:1.
Texas Penal Code, Section 22.02, Aggravated Sexual Assault – first degree felony.2.
Texas Penal Code, Section 22.011, Sexual Assault – first and second degree felonies.3.
Texas Penal Code, Section 25.01(a) (1), Bigamy, (e) (2) – first degree felony, if the person is 16 years of age or younger at the time.4.
Texas Penal Code, Section 25.01(a) (1), Bigamy, (e) (1) – second degree felony, if the person is 17 years of age at thetime.5.
Texas Penal Code, Section 34.01, Money Laundering – first degree felony, if the value of the funds is $200,000 or more.6.
Texas Penal Code, Section 71 (a) (1), Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity – first degree felony.
So what is Texas going to do about the FLDS running a criminal operation in our state?
We're taking your ranch, Warren, the whole enchilada. Y'know, like when we seize the property of drug dealers?

I have a correction to something I said in today's video. In the video I said we had documented almost 20 children run over by cars in the FLDS community over the last 20 years. That was incorrect, and I'll attribute that mistake to my brain function being so slow from a week of nothing but beans and water. I should have said that we have documented almost a dozen children who died this way in a 20 year period. The link to one of the documents below will show you the chart.
Don't miss today's big question at the end of the blog! How dangerous is it to be a child inside the FLDS?
Welcome to Day 7 of the AAAP Bean Fast, which we have launched as a prayer and fasting project to stand in solidarity with the children of the FLDS. These children have been restricted to a diet consisting of beans and water for breakfast and dinner, for months now. This was done on the orders of their leader, Warren Steed Jeffs, who is serving a life sentence for the sexual assault of children here in Texas.
Thank you for watching our videos each day, participating in the bean fast, prayer and or contacting officials in the states of Utah and Arizona, and asking them to please do something to protect the children.
I'm grumpy today and the video proves it. I cannot imagine this diet for another week, let alone six months like the children trapped inside the FLDS compounds across America. I'm getting frequent headaches, I'm tired and my thought processes are quite dull.

This is a picture of the FLDS ritual rape bed found by Texas Rangers inside the "temple" on the YFZ Ranch in 2008. For more information about this rape bed, please see today's video blog.
Thanks to the tax payers it looks like Warren is enjoying another fine breakfast this morning in the cell of the Poweledge Unit in Palestine, while the children of the FLDS have nothing again but beans and water.
By the way, did you know that most FLDS families are on the SNAP [food stamp] program? That means that even though taxpayer dollars are funding hundreds of dollars of food for these children every month, their parents, following the orders of Warren Jeffs, are feeding them just pennies worth of the assistance that's actually provided to them. The SNAP program is designed to ensure no child goes hungry or lacks proper nutrition. That's exactly what it's for! How do you feel about Americans who take such assistance and still refuse to properly feed their children with it?
