Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

Recommended Posts

That is one sick son of a bitch.  And stupid to boot.  Great combination.  

But when do we find out about the bond?

Along with being thoroughly disgusted, I'm amazed at how dumb Josh was about his passwords. And shocked that he admitted to having a dark web browser. He certainly can't claim that he downloaded this stuff by mistake.

Hearing is still going. We're at 1.5 hrs -- I can't imagine it goes more than an hr more but who knows.

I'm still stuck on the pics of 18 MONTH old BABIES. He's sick and unfixable. Let's adjourn the hearing and leave him in prison. And yeah we knew he was stupid -- asking LEO if someone downloaded CP on his computer knowing full well HE did and passwords same has his DOB!?

I don't recall that version of the story.  On the show, Michelle was discussing the importance of women dressing modestly to avoid arousing men.  She talked about mowing the lawn in a bikini when she was in high school.  Her neighbor happened to see her, and, shortly afterwards, divorced his wife.  Michelle seemed to think that the sight of her in a swimsuit drove the man into a lustful frenzy which caused him to end his marriage.  

Michelle never said that her neighbor actually flirted with her, admired her bikini or otherwise expressed any interest in her.  Nor did the neighbor or his wife every tell her that her lawn mowing outfit had anything whatsoever to do with the collapse of the marriage.  Michelle apparently assumed she was just so darned irresistible that it was inevitably her fault.

Do you think that maybe the neighbor was looking at her and her bikini and was thinking that it is not a good idea to mow the yard in that attire?  With all the stuff flying around and objects on the ground you could step on?  Not sure how this caused the neighbor's divorce.  Landscaping can be brutal sometimes, I guess!

Yeah, it'll be pretty hard to blame this on the ex-con employee when Josh admitted to downloading the browser and the password is his birth year. I'm actually glad he's stupid. This makes it much easier for the Feds to build their case.

Unless the defense argues "no one can be THAT stupid, he was obviously framed and someone planted all that on the computer."

I think the password, browser, and asking if "someone" downloaded CP are all examples of Josh thinking he's the smartest guy in the room.  That's what he was raised to believe and hasn't learned any different.  He will get a real lesson about who's the smartest in the room now.

I hope some of the Kellers are supporting Anna. They always say the #1 predictor of whether women leave an abusive marriage is family support. She might suck, but the worst person in the world doesn't deserve Josh as a husband.

When my group interviews a suspect on a search warrant, the first question they ask is "do you know why we are here?"  For Josh to offer that up is mind blowing.

Pedos often want to get caught. Not in the sense that they want to get handcuffed and thrown in jail. But they want to stop living the double life. Josh saying the quiet part out loud to the FBI agents is consistent with that behavior.

It indicates he really is a pedophile.  I just hope he's stopped abusing his relatives and switched to online porn. I'm afraid of what the answer is.

The saddest part is the continuity of Josh's behavior.  They didn't find images of little boys.  They found images of little girls (from what I've read, I could be wrong).  That means he abused his sisters and he is seeking out images consistent with his past abuse.  The line goes straight to abusing little girls again.   I wouldn't let him out of jail but I've seen worse suspects get out of jail with no restrictions.

The article noted family and friends stated Josh had a porn addiction. Does that mean they were interviewed at some point in the last two years?

If so, then they had to know this was about CP and not financial crimes, yet they still acted like everything was status quo. If I'm interpreting the article correctly, this family is even more twisted than I previously thought.

Exactly!  If I read one more youtube pontificator say he's up for 40 years, I'm going to scream.  I've never seen a concurrent sentence in federal court. I think we'll be lucky if he gets 10 years, but it's rare that federal court gives 5 years for these cases.  In my experience, that is.  

This is where I am. 5 years or less he got a great lawyer. 5-8 they came to an agreement. 9+ yippee

There was something very off about Joy's vibe recently. The sunniest sister all of a sudden turned glum and it became Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. We thought it was post-partum depression but looking back, the feds would have interviewed her for sure. Him molesting his five year old sister builds their case.

Not necessarily.  The Duggars views on porn do not distinguish between consenting adults and CSA.  It's all the same as far as they are concerned.

Anna, shit or get off the pot immediately.   His own question to the agents conducting the raid speaks volumes, there is no dancing around that being something she can lay at the feet of persecution by law enforcement or a law enforcement mistake.   There is not a single Duggar sibling incapable of following the logic of what Josh's own question proves.

If you are not prepared to remain permanently apart from Josh, at least start investigating a permanent guardianship arrangement for your children away from you both until they are adults.   It will be a trauma they will likely live with forever, however there is never any possibility they can ever be safe in your care if you intend to reunite with Josh at any point.    If it's true that there are victims as young as 18 months he is horrifically a super overachiever amongst child predators.   It will never be possible he can freely function in society again and not be a threat to children.

Uhhhh....His password was his birth year. And he used it for his bank accounts, a dark web child-sexual-abuse and pornography site, and MORE??? 

And people are saying that he's savvy about computers? Compared to Fred Flintstone, maybe.   

As with everything else with Duggar-related idiots, he imagines he's savvy. He tells people he's savvy. But, uh, no.

By now everybody who does illegal stuff via the computer goes through a Tor browser. So he's no more savvy than all the other sex-image seekers and people downloading licensed movies for which they don't have the license.....

All arrogance, nothing else.

I told the AUSA in my last big CP case that I wouldn't be happy with anything less than 20 years.  She told me before the sentencing that I was delusional.  I got …maybe 13? For hundreds of thousands of graphic videos.  It's nearly disheartening.

So this is so sickening and also stupid! I don’t do anything illegal or horrifying, online or IRL, and even I know that no one uses an easily deciphered password. Josh’s heart is missing and so is his brain.

Oh, no. He's one of God's special people and the leader of their home. 

Another thing that would absolutely be better in the world today if Josh hadn't been born to the Duggars but to another set of parents -- He wouldn't have seven kids who get to cope with this for the rest of their lives.

Actually from what I've seen his family has been getting ready to throw him under the bus. None of them have said they thought he was innocent, just that they wanted the "truth to come out" and "justice be done".  They didn't say he was innocent when he pled not guilty. 

JB and Michelle, Ben and Jessa talked about Josh, Anna, and "their family". He's part of his own family, not theirs. "Leave and cleave, baby." 

I need to stop now, but fuck Josh forever.

This is typical for these cases.  Pervs like videos more than still images for a reason.  So now Josh can't say it was viewed on accident, because he used TOR to go to the dark web.  The reporting states he was viewing and sharing. Was he using a file sharing program? 

The key thing to me is he cannot claim he did not realize there was a problem with these images.  If he had a million photos of children I could see him trying to argue that they are non-sexualized photos. Sort of, I thought one of my daughters would look cute with her hair that way.  Or I want to show my wife that outfit.  Using TOR says he knows what this stuff is.  I really hope he stays locked up.

Plus non sexualized pics where you wanted to show your wife a certain kid's haircut or dress would mean said kid was DRESSED fully. I'm guessing that's not what happens with CP. And you wouldn't be using TOR or anything like that to access said pictures -- you'd be pulling up the Children's Place spring catalog on your computer.

what is a TOR, please?

 

From Wikipedia:

"Tor is free and open-source software for enabling anonymous communication by directing Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer overlay network consisting of more than seven thousand relays[5] in order to conceal a user's location and usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult to trace the Internet activity to the user: this includes "visits to Web sites, online posts, instant messages, and other communication forms".[6] Tor's intended use is to protect the personal privacy of its users, as well as their freedom and ability to conduct confidential communication by keeping their Internet activities unmonitored."

Basically, a web browser that is at least in theory harder to trace than Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge's privacy mode.

Completely agree. But I just can’t see him admitting it. If he’s found guilty, he (and the rest of the Duggars) can maintain that he was framed.

It's a browser technology that allows you to access things and send things anonymously. Basically there's a chain of computers that each forward the signal, and each one only gets a message about the next computer to send it to. No computer in the chain knows the whole path of a message. 

A browser like that obviously has both bad and good uses. Bad is clear. Good is allowing people in very repressive regimes to communicate without being executed for it -- advance democratic movements, get free access to information that a government or other agent tries to lock down -- like allowing Chinese internet users to see information about the Tiananmen Square massacre. And so on.

JB would have known what Josh was up to, but the rest of his kids would not.  The more secular sons-in-law probably could connect the dots and realize the severity of Josh's actions.  But that can only happen if they knew about the reason for the raid.  JB had to have had played that one close to his chest waiting to see what would happen.

Tor is an onion router.  It basically breaks up activity and traffic and sends it to many nodes in the network, making it nearly impossible to track where it's going and where it came from. It obscures activity and links from sites to downloader.  By splitting traffic up and sending it in 100s of different directions, it makes tracking the activity very hard.

Fun Fact:  TOR was created and distributed by the US Navy (I think) to help dissidents and journalists in totalitarian countries to get information out to the world safely, without fear of being tracked.
