Barksdale airman and conspiracy theorist arrested for child porn

| December 13, 2020

An “active” airman from Barksdale who ran unsuccessfully as a Republican for Louisiana’s Fourth Congressional district has been arrested for kiddie porn. He must be a guardsman or reservist if he was running for political office. From WGNO;

A Bossier City [Louisiana] man who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in November was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges.

According to Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office booking records, 34-year-old Ben Gibson was booked into Bossier Max Wednesday morning on four counts of pornography involving juveniles under the age of thirteen (possession).

Gibson, an active Airman at Barksdale Air Force Base, was a little-known Republican challenger in a four-way race for the U.S. House Dist. 4 Congressional seat. Incumbent Rep. Mike Johnson won the re-election for a third term with 60.4% of the vote. Gibson garnered 6.3% of the vote, coming in last behind Democrats Kenny Houston and Ryan Trundle.

According to the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office, the arrest was a result of a joint investigation with the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crime Unit, the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Bossier City Marshall’s Office.

According to a statement from BAFB, Gibson has been removed from his recruiting duties.

“We hold our airmen to the highest standards and will be working with the Attorney General’s office and the Office of Special Investigation and local law enforcement during this investigation.”

Jared Kutz, 30, of Bossier City was also arrested as a result of the investigation and charged with two counts of pornography involving juveniles under the age of thirteen (possession). As of early Thursday afternoon, both had been released on bond.

“My office is committed to using every tool we have to protect Louisiana’s children.,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said n a statement released Thursday about the arrests. “We will continue to collaborate with our local, state, and federal partners to bring child predators to justice.”

Thanks to this Daily Dot version of the story, I also now know just what the “QAnon” thing the media talks about but never explains is about;

Gibson had repeatedly made references to QAnon on Facebook, using hashtags popular with the movement on both his personal and campaign accounts.

The QAnon conspiracy alleges that President Donald Trump is secretly battling a Satanic group of child-eating Democrat pedophiles and that “Q,” a military intelligence officer, is leaking details about the fight online.

The group has been linked to numerous instances of violence and has been labeled as a potential domestic terror threat by the FBI.

    Reading the article, it appears that he was on Recruiting Duty. Back when Hack Stone was on Recruiting Duty in the vast wasteland of the Mid West, he was working 30 days a month to make mission. The Air Force Recruiter had such a low goal to hit that he was active in the local community theater scene.

    Apparently, he thought the motto was “Aim short”

    Short eyes, that is…

    25 years of internet,
    and I continue to wonder,
    between the teachers, the clergy, the elected officials, and the military…
    Don’t any of these boner beans read the news,
    and see what happens to the lives of those who have been caught
    moist handed?

    Kutz the Putz and the “new” Gibson Girl. Meet your new best friends, Bubba, Thor, Julio, and “Tiny”. Speaking of “meat” that’s the kind of man made sammiches you need to acquire a taste for. You have a new career path as a “salad tosser” coming up.

    (a) If the pics show a hot hoochie mama, it’s a fat tranny, and I’m not speaking of a gearbox.

    (b) If the pics show a hot hard body stud muffin, it’s a tub of lard, and I’m not speaking of a product made from animal renderings…or vegetable matter.

    (c) If the pics are of a young’un…It’s a cop.

    Thus endeth the lesson.

      I miss the Good Old Days when the term “Blowing a tranny” meant that you had serious car trouble!

    He’ll find Bubba, Tyrone and Tiny in the joint don’t much like losers who mess with kids.

    Looks like he’s a AF Reserves recruiter and an E-7. Not to mention a douche-nozzle.

    So what is the deal with this QAnon guy and why hasn’t he had his (or her) Clearance suspended for leaking classified information? Must be Hillary at it again!

    Is QAnon short for non-Question and Answer?
