  1. I thought I would start a thread to collect the articles that are being published about the FLDS & the Kingston Clan. Here is the latest article I have read: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/04/08/mormon-fundamentalist-yfz-ranch-raid/492767002/ It is about Roy Jeffs. He was part of YFZ raid and he has been bounced around since then and hasn't seen his mom in 6 years or so. He gives other details (I didn't know about) on the girl that was in foster care the longest from the YFZ raid.
  2. I just discovered the "Survivors Podcast(https://www.survivorspodcast.com/podcast-episodes/)." It is a really well done show that interviews survivors of polygamy. It mostly focuses on the Kingston Clan but they have interviewed some people who have left the FLDS. As well as, a current 16 year old young lady who is a member of the Centennial Park group. According to Young Barlow, Rulon Jeffs was murdered with clay used to harden pipes. I highly recommend listening to the episode.
  3. Has anyone watched Warren Jeffs: Prophet of Evil? It is an A&E documentary. A couple of the of the former FLDS were previously on Escaping Polygamy. (Rachel Jeffs, Isaac Jeffs) It was a good documentary. I have read several books and the nice thing about this documentary was that it put all the stories together in the timeline. It told how the people in short creek didn't know about Eldorado nor Pringle or the other properties (Colorado & Canada). Besides the abuse, it talked about Warren hiding from the feds, talked about the raid on YFZ ranch and what the feds found (all the birth records, etc). It also went more into how Warren raised to power. Which I have read in other books but it was interesting to hear from other voices on how it all fit together. The documentary also talked about the lost boys suing for control of the FLDS land trust (UEP) and that many (including Elissa Wall) have moved back and trying to take back the town. One of them said that more and more are waking up and the people leaving call it "waking up" to the truth. The school is flourishing (which FJ has talked about before). Out of all the cults, I think this one might actually be dying out. It will still take another generation. The good news is the education, education is the one way to break out of cults and that is why these fundies and cults heavily deny education. Cult leaders can't have the people thinking! I do wish the prison would put more restrictions on access to Warren by the followers. If you haven't seen the episode I highly suggest watching it.
  4. Trigger Warning - Sexual abuse The information coming out is new and still just allegations at this point. This article is quite upsetting, this is a lawsuit filed this afternoon by the same lawyers who represented Elissa Wall. The unidentified victim, now 21, alleges starting at the age of 8 she would be whisked from her home SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK, to secret locations to be sexually assaulted by several FLDS leaders in ritualistic ceremonies until the age of 12. She later became a scribe to document the sexual abuse of other very young girls. The lawyers claim that during a police raid, records were seized from an FLDS temple that support her claims. No charges have been filed and no news of any criminal investigations at this point as these allegations have just come to light. This article really hurt my heart. http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/12/28/after-polygamist-leaders-used-underage-girls-for-sex-lawsuit-says-one-teen-was-forced-to-be-a-scribe-for-the-rituals/
  5. Rachel Jeffs (33), one of Warren Jeffs' daughters and author of her new book "Breaking Free", is being interviewed by Megyn Kelly for Dateline. She was sexually abused by Warren Jeffs as a child and teen and was forced into an arranged marriage in her teens and decided to escape after Warren Jeffs ordered her, from prison, to be banished from her five children for months at a time. Although she did grow to love that husband, he refused to leave and is still committed to Warren Jeffs. She's remarried (to a Blackmore) and is very happy in her new life. Megyn Kelly grates on my very last nerve, but this is a good show and I'd like to read her book: Breaking Free: How I Escaped Polygamy, the FLDS Cult, and My Father, Warren Jeffs
  6. I am THRILLED! *doing a happy dance* http://www.sltrib.com/news/3571913-155/polygamous-church-leaders-indicted-arrested-for
  7. Anyone see this article? http://www.sltrib.com/home/5257669-155/former-plural-wife-in-utah-seeks Summary - Sarah Allred is seeking birth certificates for her youngest 2 children born in the compound in SD. Born 2008 & 2010. Warren Jeffs didn't want any birth certificates from SD because he was trying to keep the compound secret. The attorney helping Sarah said this is a very difficult case. Rep Tim Goodwin says children without birth certificates shouldn't be allowed. SD doesn't have a penalty for not registering a birth, he is suggesting SD should have a penalty. IIRC "Escaping Polygamy" goes to that compound because a sister of one of the women at the compound is in isolation there. From google maps the compound is surrounded by mountains. I know we have talked about this compound before. It was over water rights and the town caved on inspecting the compound.
  8. So, I follow Brenda Nicholson on Facebook. She and her husband left the FLDS with their kids, he hadn't taken a second wife yet, when the whole "chosen people" thing came out where they decided who was worthy and everyone else was dog shit. Today she posted this video. The man seems confused as to why he even got a letter from Warren Jeffs, and I'm glad he stopped taking a drink every time he read "amen". I don't think he would have made it otherwise... All I have to say is ummmmmm.... How does this get read in church? I don't think there's enough kool-aid on the planet for this to make sense. Also, what is he taking? I made more sense on acid, just sain'.
  9. Not a good week for the FLDS I guess. Please remove if posted elsewhere, but it seems there's a civil case against these two communities. Jeffs' former body guard/attack dog has turned: http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/25/us/jessop-flds-warren-jeffs-short-creek/index.html
  10. At 8pm EST tonight (10/7/16) there is a new "This is Life with Lisa Ling" (on HLN, in my area) starting soon. She interviews 2 of Warren Jeffs children. The summary doesn't say which ones (there are 100+ potential). Stay tuned!
  11. I've never made a topic before but I just watched this and found it very interesting so I thought I would go ahead and share it on here so we could discuss!
  12. http://www.sltrib.com/home/3862919-155/former-child-bride-onetime-polygamous-trust Former child bride Elissa Wall, who was forced to marry her 19-year-old cousin when she was just 14, has settled for $2.75m in the $40m lawsuit she brought against the FLDS trust. Life changing for her; still not sure it's received the publicity it deserved. Not sure how I feel about this outcome. Regardless, I'm glad Elissa is healthy and happy and doesn't have children from that marriage to further complicate things. ETA: I would love to see us have a Quiver Full of Fundamentalist Mormons sub forum. There is so much to talk about, but it does get rather lost in everything else when anything comes up here.
  13. On Oprah's Where Are They Now (March 22), Willie Jessop, Warren Jeffs's former head of security, does a 180 and now suddenly realizes that Warren Jeffs was a pedophile. This episode was cool because it flashed back to Oprah visiting YFZ in 2009 with Willie Jessop defending Warren Jeffs at the time, interviews with the kids, and so on. It's very creepy to watch knowing what we all know now. (link not broken because oprah.com) http://www.oprah.com/own-where-are-they ... effs-Video This episode has a lot of information about Warren Jeffs's trial and then features Willie playing Barney Fife and actually talking to these girls and seeing the evidence from the Texas trial. Willie had no idea until he heard the tapes. Willie didn't know about the group sex, or the underage girls, or the beds in the temple or anything really. Obviously. The most interesting thing is that Willie claims pretty much his whole family is still FLDS and so are the girls who involved in all of this. Even with all of this mess, it was a big deal for him to leave, go public, and be excommunicated. So good for him, I think.
  14. Will Jessop purchased Warren's old house AKA compound and now has opened as a Bed and Breakfast. Planning a vacation to Zion National Park you can book a room in Warren's old house rate $85-200 per night, cable TV, WIFI, A/C, private bathroom, spa and exercise room. If you go for the $200 per night you get to stay in his suite that also has a private kitchen. He is also talking about starting a museum on the compound. Will has been excommunicated.
  15. Two new shows featuring polygamy will premier this fall. According to the NY Post: You can read the whole article here: http://nypost.com/2013/09/24/tlc-tackli ... sial-flds/ I am pretty interested in watching these new shows!I hope Polygamy USA is back for a second season! (Edited to fix typo)
  16. kutv.com/news/top-stories/stories/vid_7846.shtml has an article and video Darger, probably a 17th cousin of the Dargers (My Five Wives) In other FLDS news the new show "Breaking the Faith" is going to be horrible. Its just like Breaking Amish! Its not a real documentary. Its taking ex FLDS, making them wear FLDS clothes, and pretending they are leaving the group for the first time.
  17. There are currently over four hundred responses. The thread will stay open until tomorrow. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1 ... ren_jeffs/
  18. I have been doing alot of reading about the FLDS. Sisterwivesblog.blogspot.com has been featuring reviews of various FLDS books. I have been curious for awhile about what happened to the former underage brides? Were they removed from the FLDS?
  19. The episode airing on ABC now on the east coast has a "report on the effects of Warren Jeffs". I haven't caught any teasers yet, so I'm not sure how much new info (if any) will be featured. Full episodes of 20/20 are usually available on ABC's website after they air.
  20. Warren Jeffs has been keeping busy in jail. According to one of his former jailers, the convicted child rapist masturbated more or less continuously while in custody. Rick Bradley, a guard at the county jail where Jeffs was kept in the weeks prior to his trial, told The Daily that the 55-year-old seemed to be suffering from sexual withdrawal and pleasured himself “a lot.†What does that mean, exactly — five times a day? More, Bradley said. Fifteen times? “Sometimes more than that,†he told The Daily. The guard said that the prisoner — who was not permitted conjugal visits — often played solo in full view of his guards. “We could see him,†Bradley said. http://www.thedaily.com/page/2011/08/10 ... ffs-habit/ MY BRAIIIIIN!
  21. Here is a link (http://www.eldoradoflds.us/04-11-2013-3/) to pictures taken from an airplane over YFZ ranch. The ranch is mostly empty and there is no longer livestock there. I wonder if they are biding their time until Texas takes control of the property. I worry about where the children were taken.
  22. Apparently, Warren Jeff's is trying to one up the mayans. He is predicting that the end of the world will be Sunday instead of tomorrow. I hope we are not going to see a mass suicide on that day. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogspolygblog/55491487-185/jeffs-kutv-com-egan.html.csp
  23. I cannot believe that they are still taking orders from Jeffs. Surely this is happening State side as well, where he might have even more sway. The fathers being told to have as little contact with children/toddlers as possible at risk of being deemed adulters is also disturbing: from an opinion piece in the National Post http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/201 ... -about-it/
  24. The Guy is like the energizer bunny of fundies. even behind bars he is still a asshole. People are somewhat getting wise and leaving but there are fools that will still follow them. what a nasty self deluded worthless human. http://www.mega949.com/cc-common/news/s ... e=10215304 A new revelation reportedly handed down by imprisoned polygamist leader Warren Jeffs names 15 men in the community as “fathers†to the children of the Fundamentalist LDS Church. Author and private investigator Sam Brower says his sources claim the chosen 15 are the only ones who are now allowed to father FLDS children. He says the announcement prompted hundreds of FLDS faithful to walk out of the meeting where the edict was read. Jeffs is now serving a life sentence in Texas child sexual assault, as a result of his role in underage marriages. Read more: http://www.mega949.com/cc-common/news/s ... z1yXaYA08t
  25. I think Warren Jeffs is going to help his cult to finally crack & crumble apart. Good. If nothing else, there will be a few less fundie children born into the world in 9 months time. http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7053 ... s-say.html
