Waitress Uses Secret Note To Save Child Abuse Victim

In the midst of all the noise and political stories filling up the news cycle, human interest, and life-changing stories really stand out to me.

In Flordia last year, a restaurant manager got ready and went to work, just another day for her in the heavy service-oriented business.

What she and a young boy heading to the restaurant did not know, was things were going to dramatically turn for the good, because she cared to do something.

In 2021, Flaviane Carvalho, a manager at Mrs. Potato Restaurant in Orlando, Florida, and mother of two children was waitressing a table for Timothy Lee Wilson and his family on New Year’s Day when she noticed the man had not ordered any food for an 11-year-old boy at the table, FOX 35 of Orlando reported.

Wilson, the boy’s stepfather, when asked told Carvalho that the child would not be ordering anything, but would eat at home. His answer did not divert her concerns especially after she noticed cuts and bruises on the boy’s face and arms.

In a split second, she had to make a decision, do I intervene, possibly risk my career, or should I stay out of the family’s apparent dysfunctional issues.

“I could see he had a big scratch between his eyebrows,” Carvalho later told FOX 35. “Couple of minutes later, I saw a bruise on the side of his eye. So I felt there was something really wrong.”

Without alerting the boy’s parents, Carvalho gained the boy’s attention, passing him a secret note, and asking if he needed help.

The boy nodded in the affirmative and Carvalho called the police.

“I am relieved knowing that the abuser is paying for his crimes and the boy has a better chance in life,” Carvalho told WESH 2 News.

Wilson, 36, was found guilty Monday of false imprisonment of a child under the age of 13, three counts of aggravated child abuse with a weapon, four counts of aggravated child abuse, and one count of child neglect, according to the report.

The boy’s mother, Kristen Swann, was charged with two counts of child neglect after she told police she knew about the abuse and did not intervene, officials said.

“Justice was served,” Carvalho said after the verdict was announced, WESH reported. “Now he [the victim] is healthy. He’s being loved. It’s clear on his face and the way he’s acting that he’s much better now.”

Police described what the child had gone through as “torture,” FOX 35 reported.

“Seeing what that 11-year-old had to go through, it shocks your soul,” police said.

“I was used like a tool from God to help him,” Carvalho told WESH. “We need to pay attention for the ones that are in need, and step forward to do something to change the situation.”

“The little boy was so brave. He not only saved himself, he saved his little sister by standing up to this man,” Carvalho told DailyMailTV. “I am so proud of him. He is the hero.”

Carvalho testified to the abuse at the trial and was credited with saving the boy’s life.

“We probably would’ve been talking about a potential homicide investigation if she had not intervened when she did,” Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon said, per WESH.

Now that the monster and accomplice, their mother, are incarcerated, these children hopefully find a lot of support from family members and others in the community.

Trump and His Allies Move to Destroy Biden Campaign

Trump-and-His-Allie-Move-to-Destroy-Biden-Campaign

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Politico revealed on Monday that a pro-Trump super PAC receiving significant funding from billionaire Miriam Adelson is preparing to launch a $61 million advertising campaign this month to deal a fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s struggling campaign.

A source informed Politico that a revitalized and redesigned Preserve America will run advertisements this month as the Summer Olympics get underway in Paris.

The story stated that the ads would run in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

In May, it was revealed that Adelson intended to contribute significantly to Preserve America, a group established amid President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.

Although it is currently uncertain how much the super PAC will rely on Adelson’s contributions, sources informed Politico in May that she intends to raise her 2020 donation of $90 million.

Her and her late husband’s contributions accounted for 85% of Preserve America’s funding. Sheldon Adelson, the late billionaire who owned casinos, passed away on January 11, 2021.

Adelson’s wife, who now controls their contributions, plans to increase their super PAC funding.

Preserve America’s goal is to capitalize on the internal Democratic squabbling that followed the June 27 presidential debate. Several Democrats have demanded that Biden resign as his polling numbers have dropped.

Adelson and her son-in-law are Las Vegas Sands’s principal shareholders and jointly own most of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, she is worth $33.3 billion.

5 Worst Polls Democrats FEAR This July 4th Holiday

5-Worst-Polls-Democrats-FEAR

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Several independent surveys indicate that former President Donald Trump’s momentum on July 4 may be the highest during the 2024 cycle.

Before President Joe Biden’s appalling performance in the debate last week, numerous polls showed Trump leading Biden in practically every category, including national, swing state, and significant issue surveys.

According to post-debate polling, Trump is gaining momentum.
Still, the Biden campaign disagrees with the statistics. An internal survey has recently circulated that indicates Biden’s position in the race is unaltered.

The accuracy of Biden’s internal polling is under question.
After the first presidential debate on June 30, Nate Silver released his election model estimate, which shows that Trump has a six-point advantage over Biden in terms of likely winning the popular vote in November.

George W. Bush, who received 50.73 percent of the vote in 2004, was the last Republican to win the popular vote.

For the first time, Silver’s election model estimate on June 30 indicated that Trump would defeat Biden in the popular vote. The forecast said that one day before the debate, Trump was behind by two points.

More significantly, there is a 68.4% chance that Trump will prevail in the electoral college, which will determine the election’s winner. Biden’s reelection is just 31% possible.

The top five post-debate polls that seem to support Silver’s interpretation are shown below:

One: A Suffolk University survey indicates that 41% of Democratic voters want President Joe Biden to withdraw from the 2024 contest, while 51% prefer him to stay on the ticket.

Two: According to a YouGov survey, 72% of voters believe Biden lacks the mental and cognitive capacity to be president, and another 72% of people want him to withdraw from the contest.

Three: According to a New York Times/Siena survey, Trump leads Biden by six points, up three points from the previous week and the biggest lead the Times has seen since 2015.

Four: A Wall Street Journal poll finds Trump leading Biden by six points, his biggest advantage in Journal polling ever.

Five: A leaked internal Open Labs poll states that “votes for Biden in the two-way horse race declined by -0.8pp,” and “votes for Trump in the multi-way also declined by -0.8pp.”

The email states that the statistics show “the largest single-week drop since horse race tracking began in late 2021.”

Honorable Mention: According to a CNN survey, Trump now leads Biden 49 to 43 percent.

Watch Trump’s Reaction to Biden Being Replaced by VP Kamala Harris

Watch-Trumps-Reaction-to-Biden-Being-Replaced-by-VP-Kamala-Harris

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Former President Donald Trump is anything but confident about his performance at the debate last week.

Someone filmed him on the golf course and leaked the footage to The Daily Beast in an attempt to make him look bad, but given the man’s history, is that really ever the case?

[CAUTION: Language]

Now there’s a man who knows he’s gonna win!

Though Biden denies it, things are chaotic in the Democratic Party, and his dementia is getting worse every day, so you never know what will happen.

Consider Kamala running against China’s Xi or Russia’s Putin if she wins the presidency. Are we really going to pick Kamala to put an end to these terrible dictators who want to conquer the world?

Trump must have thought this video was as great as we did because he shared it on Truth Social along with a small campaign pledge.
