With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
A retired school teacher has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison for possessing videos and images depicting the sexual abuse of children.
Michael Paul Gillis, 65, of Jacksonville, Florida, was given a sentence of five years and ten months in federal prison and ordered to serve a ten-year term of supervised release, as well as to register as a sex offender and forfeit his computer media, according to a Department of Justice press release . Gillis had pleaded guilty on April 27, 2022.
The retired school teacher came to the attention of the FBI during an investigation into an online network used for sharing child sexual abuse materials, when it was discovered that Gillis had accessed the network from his home.
In February, the FBI executed a search warrant at Gillis’s home and seized several computers belonging to Gillis containing at least 2,000 images and 150 videos depicting infants, toddlers, and other young children being sexually abused.
According to the press release , Gillis admitted that he had been accessing child sexual abuse materials using the internet for the past fifteen years, and that he had viewed materials depicting children as young as three years old.
He confirmed that he had viewed these materials while employed as a teacher and stated that he would fantasize about touching children inappropriately, but claimed he had never acted on it.
He also acknowledged that he would continue to seek out such materials online because he would have “a hard time” stopping this behavior, which he described as “an urge.”
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney D.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
