Sexual Exploitation and Degradation of the Patriot Movement: TWAT

Many women who have been involved at Uncle Sam's Misguided Children may be familiar with the screen names Olivia M. North, Oliver North, Mayhem,  Gunny, Sams Gunny, as well as others. This woman's real name is Rachel Vance, and she lives in Texas. She has recently started a subgroup through the Misguided Children titled Topless Women Against Tyranny, or TWAT.

 Twat is a derogatory term for a woman, typically one that a reference her vagina. To call a woman a twat is to say she is nothing more than a vagina. It is synonymous with another word for women that rhymes with grunt.

No truly patriot community would ever sanction such an endeavor. Patriots protect women, not exploit them

Apparently, the idea is that women donate pictures of themselves topless. Then when someone buys a T-shirt, they are given admission to a separate room where they are able to view the topless pictures that have been donated to the group.

Thus, in buying a shirt, you are actually buying access to a porn site.

It is interesting that this site opens at the same time the Obama Administration uses sex parties to sell enrollments in Obama Care. Is the Uncle Sam's website an Obama Operation aimed at discrediting the conservative movement?

This isn't just a member of Uncle Sam's running amok. The last screenshot in this post edifies the TWAT movement. This is something that is being sanctioned, endorsed, and operated by the Misguided Children.

Now, it is one thing for a woman to solicit topless pictures. It is another thing to post them in a group. But to make these pictures part of a financial transaction moves the group into another line of business: Pornography.

There is still no evidence that veterans are being hired to make the T Shirts, outside of Pedro Ferran and Cracker with an ironing board.

Indeed, there seems to be no evidence that the shirts are made in the United States of America.

Here are some questions:
A) There are many sites on the internet upon which to do free podcasts. What sort of podcast does Rachel Vance plan to do that cannot be accommodated by one of the many free websites?

B) What is so crucial about her message that it requires women to submit topless photos and open themselves up for blackmail and exploitation?

C) Why, as a woman is she participating in the degradation of woman and giving people like Diane Feinstein the "proof" of the war on women by conservatives?

D) How do the people at the Misguided Children know that all of the "women" sending in pictures are of age? How do they know that some of these ladies are not underage? Can they prove all their submissions show only those old enough?

E) What protection does a woman have against future blackmail? After all, a simple right click and "save" preserves the image on a hard drive. Years from now, should any of these women be in line for reputable activities, they could be blackmailed by Vance and others. Given the past convictions of Pedro Rick Ferran, AKA Tank, the blackmail angle is more likely the case.

The only term for this sort of thing is degradation of women.  To suggest that women should show their patriotism by submitting topless pictures so that customers can oogle over them in a private room is just absurd. To do it so that Rachel Vance can  finance her own podcast is simply laughable. There are hundreds of places online where one can do free podcasts.

This is really a last ditch effort to generate T-shirt sales.

Is Misguided Children a Cult? The La Paz of the Internet

This is in response to the broadcast this morning by Pedro of the Misguided Children calling me a "faggot" and other sorts of names.  It is interesting to note that he attacked because it was claimed he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. I never made that claim about Pedro, and I am unfamiliar with anyone else that did. Indeed, anyone with his history of drug use can hardly be regarded as a Muslim. The allegation was actually about Robert Rice, the IT guy for the Misguided Children. Furthermore, the allegation was that Mr. Rice had a Facebook relationship with Mr. Morisi, the former leader of Egypt. Nowhere was it asserted that Pedro was, merely that the top of the organization appeared to have that affiliation. 

Mr. Rice's defense has been a rather silly you tube that in no manner addresses the issues raised in this blog.

Indeed, in blog comments last night on the Patriot group post, Mr. Rice practically admitted to knowledge of the virus software on the Free Patriot blog.

However, I would be remiss if I did not point out a few facts: 

I have never worked for the Misguided Children.
I was a prospective customer.
I am the wife of a disabled veteran.
I am the wife of an American who was born 

in Havana who became a citizen as a teen.

I am not homosexually oriented, as Pedro suggests.

I have repeatedly asked for proof that veterans were being helped by the Misguided Children.  I have asked for proof that veterans were making the shirts. All I have seen is proof that Pedro has a bad temper, yells a lot of cuss words, and has a great time ingesting substances of questionable value. 

I merely asked him to back his claims. This has not been forthcoming.

Speaking of threatening..... my original post today was going to be on the similarities between Misguided Children and the Cult of Caesar Chavez.

The style with which Pedro runs his group reminds me of  Caeser Chavez.  Caesar Chavez was a friend of Sal Alinksy. Pedro, like Caesar, insists that those involved with the Misguided Children cut off their other associations in the world of Facebook.  Caesar Chavez would isolate his farm workers from the rest of the world in a compound known as La Paz.  There, Chavez  and his cronies would spend his time screaming at the farm workers as a form of "shock" therapy to make them more docile. Caesar Chavez would pay them as little as $10.00 a week and expect them to work 14-16 hours a day.

Based on the comments that are coming out in many of the blogs, it would seem that the Misguided Children operated the same way. Not merely one or two disgruntled employees, but a large number have related a similar story in blog commentaries throughout the web: employees worked long hours, received little if any pay, and were expected to forgo other Facebook relationships and remain isolated from the rest of the Facebook world. Screaming, yelling, cussing, and abusive commentary isn't a "show personae" but the way the organization operates.

This is far more like Chavez's La Paz than America.

It would seem that Pedro Ferran has adopted the same methodology as Caesar Chavez. Pedro's threats of violence against those who have left his group sound very much like Chavez's attacks on immigrants in the name of the United Farm Workers on Mexicans.  

There is no doubt that Chavez's commune was a cult. In the end, Chavez declared himself God. Is Misguided Children headed toward a cult? Will Pedro declare himself God?

The similarities between Caesar Chavez and Pedro Ferran are rather disconcerting. Shock therapy, isolating the "enemy" who is not in his group, isolating employees  and threats of violence are the hallmarks of Alinsky style tactics used by Chavez and later by Obama. Ferran appears to be using the same methodology with the Misguided Children. 

I am not saying passionate discussion should not be discouraged. It should be welcome. Censorship of debate and discussion are the hallmarks of Obama's regime. This appears to also be the hallmark of Pedro Ferran's group. Screaming obscenities at the top of their lungs at customers and employees is not the way to restore our nation. It only substitutes one dictator with another, and one abuser with another.

If you are a member of Misguided Children, p
rayerfully consider your isolation from other groups on the internet and in real life.

The Keylogger Program Associated with Visits at Uncle Sam's Misguided Children

Some people who frequented the Uncle Sam's Misguided Children area have reported that they found key logging software on their computers. I mentioned this on the first blog. Before I posted the screenshot of it, I wanted to get permission from the person in question to be able to publish the screen shot. 

I have secured that permission. I wasn't going to post it, but after Pedro Rick Ferran came on the radio on 9/3/2013 following Paul Shannon claiming we were engaged in slander and that this blog had no proof of the key logger, I thought I would show it. 

As indicated in the first blog, the typical pathway for the Key logger is c:/windows/livekernel  

It looks like below (click on the image to enlarge it):

Some may wonder what is the big deal with the Watchdog program? What exactly does it do? Well, it can block website and make the USMC webpage "sticky." It can be used to block users from going to certain websites. It is used to monitor key strokes, and record each and every keystroke, chat, email, and mouse click. Thus, if you enter a credit card number into a website, or make flirtations comment to someone in chat .... that would be entered into Watchdog and transmitted to the person who placed it there. .This makes the person very vulnerable to having their account accessed or being blackmail.  It can take screenshots and send them at certain intervals such as daily, weekly, and hourly. 

It is a very useful piece of software to "spy" on your customers and it essentially turned USMC into a min-NSA. Parents sometimes buy it to spy on their children, and employers to spy on their employees. You can read more about the friendly form at this screenshot below. The malicious version associated with the Misguided Children's website can be removed easily if detected early.  One popular program is often effective in removing the spyware (and is free) is Malware Bytes.  

Removing the virus in this case is the easy part. What can't be undone is the damage as a result of your keystrokes being transmitted. As always, change your passwords, check your bank statements, and consult your bank if you see any suspicious bank activity.

The phone number for Leatherneck, the firm that handles the business transactions of the Misguided Children, is not accurately stated on the receipts. The number that appeared was for Ft. Lauderdale Directory Information.  See the first installment of his blog to find out how to contact the company.

The Enthusiasm of Molly Dunn Powell for Pedro Ricardo Ferran

Avid readers of this blog will note the enthusiasm of Molly Dunn Powell in the comments section and her fascination with the year 1998. Her particular vernacular is quite interesting and perhaps reflects her unique style of social media marketing. Many may recall her under the screen name of "Shiloh Rebel." One of her more eloquent comments is below.

For those who are not aware, Molly Dunn Powell she is currently the "Marketing Strategists" for the Misguided Children group. This is hardly surprising given her long term association with Mr. Ferran.
Here is the screen shot from her Link Ed and that of Pedro Ricardo Ferran.


As you may recall from my earlier entry, Mr. Ferran has several businesses, including YEMX.  But it would seem they have ran in the same industries in the same circles, so these two are at best acquaintances. Prior to the Misguided Children stint, Powell had a brief adventure as a weight loss counselor. She seemed to have entered this industry just after Rick Ferran left Health Care Recruiting. Prior to that, Ferran was a business manager while Powell owned a construction company. Sarasota is not that big of a city, and it is quite likely they have known each other in at least a business capacity since the late 1990s.

The more curious aspect is the enthusiasm of Powell's responses to this blog. Powell's construction company, started in December of 1998, seems to have shut down in 2010, per the records of the state of Florida.  That would have freed up a bit of cash put up for bonding. Is it a stretch to speculate that Powell might have contributed financially to  the  the Misguided branding?

Perhaps that is why the year 1998 is so important to Molly Powell.

By the way, this isn't the only place where Powell has expressed her enthusiasm. Powell had only recently taken on the formal duties of the Misguided children.  Hours after a large portion of the staff logged out of the Misguided Children for the last time, Powell expressed her general angst on her Facebook page. One of the members of the upper management of Wells Fargo, Mr. Kilinski, seemed very sympathetic to her cause and offered to guide her toward effective resources. This offers an insight to the new expanded services by Wells Fargo. Click on the image to read the interaction.

Would you want to find people to "wack" for a job you just had a month? Or is this emotional reaction more in line with someone's investment being in trouble?

Just a thought....

How Is This Slander?

This morning, Mr. Ferran accused this blog of a few things. First he asserted that this blog attacked his entrepreneurial  talent. However, this is not true. The original blog pondered that he might have expanded too fast. Second,  Mr. Ferran asserted that this blog is by a former admin. It isn't.

I tried playing nice.

Where are the pictures of Veterans making t-shirts? In fact, where are the t-shirts? What happened to the money?

Well, let's look at Mr. Ferran's arrest record since starting Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. 

Mr. Ferran was born in 1975. He is currently 37 years old, and will be 38 on December 21st of this year. I don't want to belabor the issue, but it would seem that Mr. Ferran has had a great time since starting Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. Below is his rap sheet. Uncle Sam's has been going on for roughly a year.

You decide what has been going on with the money sent to Uncle Sam's for T-Shirts. 

PS: Please note the numerous posts by Mollie Powell below. She claimed to be a political adviser to USMC. Uncle Sam's has also provided her an I-phone which has the Misguided Children's tracking software that is on all the I-phones that admins are given. Notice her desperate posts below.


       38 That is how old he will turn this year in December. Notice the age at arrest is 37 years old. This is recent, since Misguided Children started. This is where the money is going.. up his nose and in his veins. The "veterans assistance" is to party hardy.

I wish it were not so. 


Rice and Shannon: Misguided Children's Manipulation of Conservatives to Liberal Perspectives

Well another morning of silly antics on the part of Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children. Of course, I have a response to Mr. Rice. That is in the video below. The screen shots are all there. The IT for the group clearly has connections to the White House in Washington, DC, not Texas. The audio is included to demonstrate that they advertise “No Hackers Allowed.”


Many may wonder so what? Well if you were part of the 17 listeners on Paul Shannon’s show on Sept. 3, 2013, you might have understood the impact. It was a marvelous show… if you are a Democrat. 

The show opened with the usual bit of smack talk. It then proceeded into the wonders of Daniel Patrick Moynihan who was described as “awesome.” In addition, there were high praises for Zell Miller. There were laments on where had all the Democrats gone, and how America needed more Democrats. There were misguided sonnet-like praises for Family Leave Policy and an expansion of the welfare state. He then moved on to discussion the wondering why labor unions were considered labor and how we needed to pass immigration to make America great again. Yes, he advanced Rubio’s immigration policy without mentioning Rubio’s name.


Of course, the best part of it all was listening to Paul Shannon praise Bill Gates and Steve Jobs on education reform. As all of us know, that is advocacy of the Common Core Curriculum. What was particularly amusing was to listen to Mr. Shannon advocate listening to Steven Jobs’s current ideas on education. 

Yup. I thought that was amusing. Has anyone told Mr. Shannon that Steven Jobs passed away? Further, has anyone informed Mr. Shannon that Jobs and Gates had opposing views?

Has anyone told Mr. Shannon that the Common Core being advanced by Bill Gates is Vygotskyism? I wonder if Pedro Ferran realizes that the Vygotskyism was used by Castro in his re-education camps (if you could call them that) as well as by Stalin and Mao. Stange bedfellows you keep there, Mr. Ferran. Maybe you fool some of the Cubans, but not all of them. Oh, and Mr. Ferran, even Sen. Rubio is against the Common Core. You appear to be the only Cuban voice for it. Wake up people. These folks are blind guides.

Where Does Misguided End and Fraud Begin?

One of best parts of the internet in recent months has been the debut of a radio station ran by a group called Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children. Edgy music, dispersed with anti-Obama tirades, combined with a bad boy style pirate branding have made it attractive to a global audience of those under 40. What makes it work is the appeal of the network to audiences that traditionally vote for Democratic candidates. Combined with news staff from the  Examiner like Joe Newby, the Uncle Sam’s branding has carried a conservative style message to an audience that would traditionally not seek it. Wrapped in the Hispanic voices such as Rafa Mora, or as bad boy monikers such as Mayhem and Tank, the station resonates good, old-fashion patriotic themes, Cuban conservatism, free market capitalism, military service, and many other themes that appeal to a large cross section of America. They were able to draw on angst over the state of the nation and transport the discontent of the current national leaders, both Republican and Democrat, into expression in popular culture.

It was a masterpiece reminiscent of "Rock the Casbah."

They had a fan page that was no small matter; it grew to well over 60,000 "likes" on Facebook in a very short amount of time. It also made them a target of sorts for competitors and Facebook moderators.  Like  many pages that were "taken down" over this past year, Uncle Sam's Misguided Children" was one of the pages that met the wrath of Facebook's conservative crackdowns. Unlike most groups, they were actually targeted by a Congresswoman who felt the group was a shame to the military. That peaked my interest all that much more, because irritating Democratic Congresswomen is regarded by many, including myself, to be an entertaining past time. Finding a way to make money doing it made it all that more attractive.

It seemed a shame for them to "hog up" all the fun.

They restarted the page under the name America's Misguided Children, and opened a Facebook group titled Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. The group continued to have problems with Facebook and decided to roll out their own social media. Despite Facebook's best efforts, the group grew to large numbers in a short time. They developed a large group of volunteer staff, and a very successful organization began to emerge from the ashes of Facebook persecution.

At least, that is how it appeared to those on the outside. 

Then the bottom caved in. T-Shirts, the sales of which drive revenue to maintain the website, did not appear to be arriving to those ordering them. Despite the advertising that “No Hacker’s Allowed,” it seemed that those who logged into the Uncle Sam’s Webpage would receive a key logger program that would access their bank account when they logged into the web site. (To check your computer, go to C:/windows/livekernel and see if KeyLogger or other programs are there).

Along the lines of the misguided path, those who have logged into Uncle Sam's Misguided Children's web site should carefully check their bank statements. There are some who have reported double and triple billing by the web site, and others who suggested far worse. Misguided or fraudulent, it depends upon perspective and intent, but the results are the same.  When one does business with someone who uses a pirate based logo on the high seas of the intent, finding a scalawag or two is hardly shocking.

Malware Bytes is also very good software to run in case you are unsure about things. It is strongly recommended by the admins who left the group, apparently en masse a few days ago.

While Uncle Sam's Misguided Children claim "No Hackers Allowed"  Robert Rice, the IT person for Uncle Sam’s has an interesting background which includes the White House and OpSec. He has a friends list of interesting folks that includes the recently deposed President of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi. For a group that claims to disdain Hackers and the Muslim Brotherhood, that is a tie that is quite disconcerting, particularly given the marketing niche of the group is one that opposes Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood.   Is Obama trying to make money off trashing him as well as those supporting him? Are they using this group to develop a database for Obama? It makes you wonder ....

Staff departures have also become problematic. "Stage names" for DJs were curated and originally consistent people filled the personae. It gave the sound stage a consistent feel. However, as staff left, the “stage names” of the personalities used clearly had “rotating” people in that personae,  eroding the “genuine feel” that the group had at the beginning. Undelivered T-shirts, hacking, and long hours by volunteers have taken their toll. As t-shirt and billing problems came to the attention of staff and  DJs on the front lines became frustrated over customer issues, questions were raised and rebuffed by management. When answers were not forthcoming, it became a serious morale issue.  A large number of their DJs and staff left. Those that have stayed have clear ties to strange connections, like the  Examiner, the White House IT, or Leatherneck Marketing, LLC.

Like all things masterful, there is usually a master behind it. 

 According to sources at the heart of the Uncle Sam’s, the core of the operations is not a “team of veterans making t-shirts” At its core, the T-Shirt Operation employing “veterans” is really one guy with an ironing board. I will take him at his word that he is a veteran. Now, this isn't a bad thing necessarily, and on the face of it, it would seem to be a business that simply grew too fast to keep pace with demand. It was heavy on marketing, but a solo production outfit. Clearly, expansion should have taken place in production. Sadly, this is the point where things seemed to have taken a turn for the worse. Rather than admitting they were over their head and taking the high road, it appears they took a misguided path. This is hardly surprising, for they do claim to be “misguided” children.

For those wondering, Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children is owned by Leatherneck Marketing LLC. It is based out of Sarasota, Florida. When you buy one of those t-shirts, your payment is sent to a paypal owned by Leatherneck as shown in the screenshot below.

According to Visulate,  Leatherneck Marketing LLC is based in Sarasota, Florida. There is one sole owner of Leatherneck Marketing who is listed as Pedro Ferran. In the spirit of misguided children, Pedro has had a few scrapes with Florida's finest law enforcement, but then, it has been those encounters that give the misguided moniker a genuine feel. Sadly for Pedro Ferran, Florida takes its driving laws a bit more serious than he does. But one would expect no less from America's misguided.

 Anyway, Leatherneck is clearly Pedro Ferran. It is registered with several addresses, and one of them is consistent with his rap sheet, so it is the same gentleman. Another address associated with the LLC is this one below at 1900 Main, in Sarasota County, Florida. 

For those who would have not received their t-shirt or who have unresolved billing problems, the hotline to the Attorney General’s office  in Florida is 1-866-966-7226. Clearly, the number listed on the receipt for the LLC is directory information, not the LLC itself.

Now, why is this of interest to me, for I normally do not concern myself with these sort of matters. The obvious problems are the billing problems and lack of product problems. However, one could, in theory, chalk this up to a business that grew beyond its capacity to deliver. But given Uncle Sam's associations, that capacity to deliver should have been there.

What peaked my interest was the use of the employment of  Examiner  writers and the attempt to connect to groups that are targeted by the GOP’s operations. It is long established that the Examiner is connected to big names in the industry like Gannet, Disney, and AOL. It is no secret that there is a data driven effort to to engage urban,  youth, and minority populations into the political process.  Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children has all the elements of a front for the establishment elite. 

Is it? 

If so, then those involved should take a closer look at their operations. Perhaps they should consider resumes and back ground checks a bit more carefully in their next set of operations.  Being misguided is one thing, but there is a line between misguided and criminal. It sounds like Pedro found the line.

As a side note, Pedro is the quintessential entrepreneur. He has a quite diversified portfolio of businesses, including a company that is able to sell financial instruments. His other business listings can be found below for the curious investor to research and evaluate.

I hope his ability to deliver in those industries is better than his ability to deliver on t-shirts.
