Exposed advocate at it again?

Recently, we wrote an article on known “advocate,” Amelia Duran. We decided we would do a follow-up to that article. As we all known, Duran is known for her alcoholism and apparant mental instability. But now, due to a recent leaked conversation, we can add hate speach to it. Rather than explaining, we will show you portions of it.

She starts the discussion with a list of individuals whom she essentially demands to be blocked. In fact, in the last image, she targets one of our investigators…somebody who has never even spoken to her.

Among the list of “those to block,” she includes very respected advocates, activists, and even journalists. But is she really a creditable source of information? Let’s review yhat very question.

In a recent Livestream, she was heard offering Meko Haze, founder of “The Daily Haze” sex if he removed the previous article we did about her. In the livestream, it was apparant that she had been drinking and was very much intoxicated. The problem was, Meko had nothing to do with the article. As with this writing, that one was written by, “War on Corruption‘s” founder, Matthew Ewing.

As shown in the above article, she has targeted not just advocates, journalists, and activists. She goes onto target legal organuzations. For instance, “M.A.F.A.” Amelia implies the block is to keep an unknown individual, as well as their child, “safe.” This implies that they are in danger if they listen to anybody aside Amelia.

But these photos show a little bit more. Rather or not what she is saying is true is not the problem. She is attacking people based on potential spiritual beliefs, that is a hate crime. Amelia Duran has just opened a possible flood gate to which sbe may not be able to close.

Furthermore, she is using this hate speech propoganda to do potential harm to the images of people, their groups, and even their legal organizations. This could be classified as “written slander” and even “defamation of character.” And this is alongside her “hate speech” and “discimination.” Basically it boils down to this: using religion as a means to smear a person, never works out well for the individual who does the smearing

Let’s get back to our question: is Amelia Duran really a good source for information? Absolutely not. In fact, I wouldn’t trust her with a potatoe gun. That is mostly due to the risk of her fermenting the pototes. Now, I know we made a quick jab at her, but at this point, she’s earned it. This vile woman has, on many occasions, gone out of her way to smear people. These are people who have worked hard to gain their images; some of these people have even built entire platforms/organizations.

In this case, she went after several people. One of these, we know for a fact has never even spoken to her. He only knew her by what others had said. But, she does have a SOC account, which he had contacted in order to correct her idiotic behavior.

Amelia Duran has no business in the field of advocasy. She can call this “trolling,” she may even call me a “hater,” I don’t care. This woman has shown her lack of ethics, she did this on a Live roadcasted phone call to Meko Haze. He willfullness to smear, slander, and due to why she offered Meko sex, prostitute herself speaks for itself. If anybody should be blocked, it’s this pile of filth.

Illegal counciling services?

It seems, as of late, that we are in the business of exposing people. Rather it’s a group of advicates pretending to be that-advocates, a group who placed families in danger by allowing a convicted pedophile into their group, or this lady…we seem to be busy.

Recently, we had been contacted by Melissa MacDonald, a member of team “Revitup.” She contacted us about a potential scammer, Lisa Michaele Walker-Mcmillan (Michaele Mcmillan.) Mcmillan operates several groups within Facebook. Among them, “Wounded Hero Project.” The group, according to the image below, is essentially claiming to be a counciling center. Now, as we all know, to make such a claim, one must be licensed in the field.

Although we had no reason to doubt Melissa’s claim, we make a habit of going in with a skeptical eye. With this, we contacted the page. We simply asked for verification of the clege they attended as well as a photo of their certification. If provided, this article would had given them some problicity. Well, clearly that is not how things went.

After waiting for about an hour, Mcmillan did respond. The response was simply, “hello Melissa.” I explained who I was, what I was doing, and even offered to call. Although it showed that the messages were read, no reply was ever given. With that, we felt that we had enough information to proceed with an article.

We conducted a search, one in Arkansas as well as Kansas, to verify rather or not her organization was legit. Because, in one image, we saw LLC on the name, we began there. To not much of a suprise, no such LLC existed in either state. We than conducted a 501c3 and 501c4 search. Both had the same results: No such organization existed.

We went to the group’s Facebook page and decided to pull the provided phone number. If this was a legitimate counciling service than the number should be in its name. What we found was the phone number was operating on the AT&T network and it was Mcmillan’s personal cell.

This was more than enough for us to write this article. What we have here is a woman who is illegally providing a counciling service to veterans. She has no legit business, no certification in the field to which she provides service for, and no legit phone number to her artificial business.

While her intent might be good, we say this with much hesitation, the facts don’t lie:

1. She is not trained to handle PTSD, depression, anxiety, and the many other issues that vets face.

2. She is operating an illegal counciling center, under the radar of the State medical board.

3. When questioned, she simply avoids the subject. People do this when they know they have been busted.

4. What she is doing is not helpful, cute, or funny. She is targeting a group of people who, in many cases, are vulnerable. These people are often fighting suicidal depression and thoughts. To play doctor, or councilor, is not something we should take lightly.

We had conducted this research with an open mind. Because Mcmillan refused to answer one simple question, it has lead us to believe that she is a complete fraud as well as a threat to those who feel vulnerable. Below, we will show the entire conversation. We are doing this for accountability. If we provide it, she cannot say that we omitted her response from this article.

Family Foward Project supports convicted sex offender!

For any person fighting CPS, there is an expectation of security when dealing with an advocate. For the group, Family Foward Project, it is easy to say that this trust has been violated.

The group’s founder, Connie Reguli, has knowingly endorsed convicted sex offender, David Shore. David Shore got placed onto the registry when he molested his 14yo handicapped daughter. Although this information is publically available, this has not waived Connie’s support for the convicted pedophile.

Connie’s support appears to be a rather tight bond-going as far as to endorse David’s book; however this support isn’t without consequence.

Already, people have began to comment their distain for David, as well as Connie’s endorsement. Family Foward Project, which has already been plaqued with issues, is now seeing people removing themselves from the group. Meko Haze, for his own artical, attempted to make contact with FFP only for his post to be deleted by the administrators.

A group such as FFP should be devoted to protecting families and children. As we view it, they seem more concerned with aiding and protecting a convicted pedophile. Regardless of what reason she may have, it doesn’t alter the fact that she knows of his conviction, a fact she willfuly has ignored. When a family needs an advocate, one should be very cautious about groups such as this. If they are protecting a registered sex offender, they cannot claim to be for the children.

Man who admitted to molesting a child, threatens journalist

If you haven’t heard the name, “David Shore” before, sit back and grab the popcorn, you are about to get a crash course. The shortened version is David, who oddly enough is friends with Francesca Amato, is a sexual predator, confirmed by his registry on the sexual predator’s watch list. He was accused of molesting a child, who was under 14 yo at the time.

Above is an image portion of the charges. Recently, in what we consider a rather comical PM, Meko Haze recieved a threat from Shore (not worthy of being called Mr. Shore.) Rather than explaining the PM, we will let you see it.

This PM is what we intend to breakdown.

First let’s address the detective lying. While we agree the police do lie, often times interrogations, such as these, are recorded. They are recorded for evidence as well as accountability purposes.

He goes onto state that he has a civil attorney and has contacted the feds regarding cyber harassment. Well, we can tell you from experience that the Feds won’t get involved…even if they did work that sort of case, it’s unlikely they would aid a convicted child predator. Furthermore, DOC is actually public information. If Shore had an attorney, as he proclaims, he would had been informed of that.

He goes back to gloat about the feds being involved, they aren’t involved. I’m sure you can see where we are going with all of this, but if you don’t, let’s nail this coffin closed.

David Shore is upset that people learned of his twisted past. In retalliation, he thought that threatning a journalist was a smart move. If he knew anything about journalists, we never back down. He is apparantly bluffing about having an attorney as he knows nothing about the laws involving sex predators; DOC records are PUBLIC information. Afterall, what parent would want to move next door to this guy? In some way, he is associated with Amato as he is on her friends list, though the how remains unknown. To dumb it down, thanks for putting a beacon on yourself, David.

Advocate scam

We have stated it before, the worst thing for a parent is to be ripped away from their children. The desperation, vulnerability, the sleepless nights are just a portion of their nightmare. Many of the parents turn to the Facebook community in a desperate attempt of seeking an advocate, and advocates are in abundance.

While there are many good people who truly want to assist these victims, there are many who wish to exploit them; it is such an person we wish to expose, Punished for Protecting (P4P,) Francesca Amato-Banfield.

Looking into P4P

Two different platforms did research into her 501(c)4 organization. As an organization, she would had obtained either a tax number or a tax exemption number, both are public information. According to the outside source, neither things were found within IRS records. As we had stated in the last artical, the state of New York also had nothing within their records pertaining to P4P, this is an enormous red flag to anybody seeking an advocate.

With the lack of any relevent, and legal, information to validate this 501(c)4, we must presume it isn’t a legal organization. Once we came to this conclusion, we decided to further investigate. Because of Ms. Amato’s consistant outbursts, looking into her, as a “founding” figure was rather easy.

Amato vs. Meko

In the above image, the true color of Francesca is clearly seen. First, let’s nust point out the idiocy of the original post, prior to her editing it.

She states, “hes a fake fraud…pedophile too.” This was a review left on a page operated by Meko Haze. First, to let’s look at the “fake fraud” aspect. To be a fraud, that would mean that you are not legitimate. It is furthered determined that if you are not legitimate, you are fake. So, in retrospect, she used two negatives. In the English language, wo negatives counter one another. That means what she really stated, had she of known proper English is, ” he’s legitmate” as the double negatives contradict one another.

She goes on to use the pedophile claim. As we have seen in the past, these criminals, who get exposed, absolutely adore that claim. In fact, one of our own had an actual campaign against him deriven from this very accusation. The reason they use the pedophile claim is simple.

The pedophile claim, often times, needs no proof, nobody ever says, “prove it.” As a result of this, the claim is often spread around, doing extensive damage to a person’s reputation. But wait, here’s the good part: it’s also illegal. Libal slander, slander, and defamation of character are three great litigation cases for people like this. Upon being called out on this claim, Amato edited her comment (post below the first one.) Sadly for her, however, Facebook let’s you see the original post.

Free of Charge!

A claim that Francesca has made regards to fees. She claims that she accepts donations. That sounds legit, right? Of course it is! Well…one little problem with this claim. Rather than taking our word for it, look for yourself.

As you can see, this clearly states that all of her classes must be paid upfront, as a fee. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here but this is not a donation. So, if she is collecting donations, making book sells, why is she charging for a class while denying taking fees outside of donations? The answer to this is obvious: she simply forgot this part of her deception.

The forced payment cannot legally be classified as a donation. Doing this is considered fraud because, as we all know, donations are essentially gifts. If you force people to gift your organization, you are not a non-profit, you are not taking donations, and you shouldn’t try to claim that you are.

In her own mind, she is a revolutionary woman. She is running for governor (no records exist to prove her claim,) she has a magical affadavit that returns all children, though in reality you denounce your citizenship and ultimately lose your case, and she is a top selling book author, even though her “top seller” is valued to be a little over $5.00 on Amazon. All-in-all, she has a great imagination.

We have already exposed one of her “organization’s leaders” here. With the behavior that seems to run rampant within “P4P,” it makes me glad to not be a desperate parent. I do, however, fear for those that she has/will victimize(d). It is, with this in mind, we brought this information to our readers.

Victimizing the victims.

For any parent, CPS is a potential nightmare waiting to happen. Sadly for many, however, the nightmare is a reality. For these parents, desperation is what drives them; for many of them, this is what drives them to frauds, predators who willfully exploit their situation for money, a form of idealistic fame, or one of countless other reasons.

Recently, “The Daily Haze’” founder, Meko Haze outed such a fraud, John Gentry. The alledged former Marine has been giving legal advice to desperate parents. Attorneys do this all the time, right? This is where it gets interesting. As it turns out, John doesn’t have a license to practice law. Now, anybody who knows even the basic logic of the law, would most likely know that it is a felony to practice law without a license, look at the Ronnie Davis case.

Mr. Gentry, upon being exposed, attempted to discredit Mr. Haze’ claim. Although the intital claim to which he practically admitted to having no legal training was in a public setting, be fought anyway. In the end, we can state that he lost. As Gentry spammed post upon post from Meko, it became clear that any support Gentry could had gotten…gone.

What we saw in his comments consisted of self embelishment, blows toward Mr. Haze who spoke the truth, and examples of his alledged legal training. We spoke to Mr. Haze prior to this artical. He informed us that all the documentation was to be handed to the FBI. It is, for this reason, we have not posted any screenshots. However, his Facebook is open so looking into it for yourself should be relatively easy.

The Daily Haze attacked with false claim!

UPDATE:

24 hours after releasing this article, Meko Haze recieved a letter to cease. Below are the images.

A very disturbing trend floating around activists who deal with children, is the pedo claim. If you disagree, correct, or simply meet the wrong person, you may get accused. Doing what we do, it shouldn’t be a surprise that a claim would be made against a journalist. Thankfully, this time it wasn’t anybody associated with our platform.

Background

The Daily Haze, in the past, has always proven itself to be a reliable and trustworthy media source. In the past, we have shared many of their articles. In fact, we have even gone as far as to write a few some years back.

Although, until now, we have never addressed any claim made against its founder, Meko Haze, this one we felt compelled to. The accusation, quoted by “The Daily Haze,” is shown below. The accuser, Amelia Duran.

The accusation is fairly blunt. The claim is that Meko believes that pedophilia doesn’t harm children. The way it is worded almost makes it sound as if he is content with the act. There is just two issues here:

1. We have had many discussions with Meko, over the years. At no point had he ever given us this impression.

2. Her unwillingness to display any form of evidence. In fact, she outright states that she won’t. Why is that?

I had intended to question her about the claim, ask for the evidence myself. However, according to Meko, she had blocked him. Being that I knew for a fact that they were friends, I checked. Sure enough, he was no longer on her friends-list. This sudden block confirmed exqctly what we thought:

1. She made a false accusation, and got caught.

2. When confronted with actual facts, she eliminated the source. This tactic is to prevent other people from seeing the confrontation; people do this so to not tarnish their lie.

We looked into Amelia, following this claim. According to an anonymous source and friend, she is proned to alcoholism. Furthermore, she is pro ed to making posts such as this, accusing people of various things. Even if she isn’t an alcoholic and our source is wrong, she still tried to make a devestating claim against a respected journalist.

We have advocated before against false alegations. The damage they cause is often unrepairable. Although a few people will always take a person’s word for gold, we choose to stand with Meko and his platform, “The Daily Haze.

Fighting the beast

We recently covered the complete destruction of Free speech within the Facebook Social Media site. Of course, we all know of the various accusations the platform has received even from the Senate. While Zuckerburg denied all of the accusations, the recent attacks on the media, and their owners, is apparent; now, it has come to us.

While WoC has not been “unpublished” unlike other platforms, the individual who started it all, has been placed on a 30 day ban for “hate speech.” The odd part to the ban is Facebook’s lack of transparency into what the hate speech actually was. To put this in lamens terms, he is banned and has no idea why.

One thing that does make this suspicious is the fact we openly endorsed/supported pages like “CopBlock,” “Free thought project,” and “Anti-Media.” All of these, and hundreds more, were suddenly and without reason, removed from Facebook. Perhaps, it is our belief in “Free speech” that they find to be “hate speech.”

As it stands, our lead journalist is in appeal number three, the other two being denied. Perhaps, it is at this time, advocates, activists, and journalists begin to give Facebook the legal president it apparently beckons for; yes, we are talking about a very large class action suit against the mega giant.

Of course, I digress. We already know this could never happen, we would never be able to rally that many people together. But what if it did? What grounds would they have?

Well, censorship of free speech is a big motivator. Most Americans can agree that free speech is a very important right they hold. So, if the Government can’s censor that right, why is a company allowed to? They would stake the claim that they own the servers and can run it as they please. This maybe true. However, federal laws apply. Censoring out platforms and people who oppose your own beliefs can only cause problems for the company; but this is Facebook we are talking about.

Because if is Facebook, WoC has actively began moving away from that platform. Because we pay for our own domain, we know that Facebook can’t keep us quiet and shut us down. We also know how to branch outward, and branching we are. Rather you agree with Facebook or not, all of us need to be aware that, at some point, we could become the next target of their censorship.

The Facebook commentary

Anybody who has ever heard of the infamous social media site, Facebook, is probably already aware of the numerous contraversies surrounding it. With this in mind, we shouldn’t be all to surprised that the site has been violating privacy laws in its collection of personal data.

As you maybe aware, or not, anything you post to Facebook is considered fair game. So, that boyfriend/girlfriend breaking up with you post…don’t be surprised when you start getting ads for dating sites. Now, that collection of information is not what we are here to discuss.

If you go to your account settings, there is an option to download a copy of what Facebook has collected on you. Upon doing this, I found that they had more information than what they legally should have. Text messages, my phone contacts, etc. are just a couple of things they had stolen from my personal phone. So, is collecting this information legal? No.

In order for law enforcement to obtain this information, they must first get a warrant. To get a warrant, they must have probable cause. Now, because Facebook is not law enforcement, they cannot obtain a warrant. However, they can conduct internal investigations if you are employed with them. So what does this have to say about their collection information on you?

Your text messages, your contact list, who you called, the duration of said call, etc., Facebook obtained in violation of Federal privacy laws. Because they cannot obtain a warrant, shrouded their collection in secrecy, and made no attempt to inform people, we now see the newest hashtag, #DeleteFacebook.

With this hashtag trending, it does make us wonder rather or not Facebook has finally come to its end. Although, there will always be people associated with the Social media site, alternative sites have taken this oppurtunity to grow their user bases. Given the extensive, and yet, contraversial history of Facebook, leaving the mega site may not be a bad idea.
