John Walsh Not Happy He’s Not Getting His Way, Plans to Name Names of Those Holding Up the Reauthorization of the Bill Named After His Murdered Son


A few reminders for those of you who think John Walsh is a great man. 

1. The person who is believed to have abducted and beheaded John Walsh’s son, Adam Walsh was Otis Toole. A drifter and serial killer with NO known history of sex crimes. So the Adam Walsh Act to publically register Sex Offenders in America is named after a victim who is not known to have been sexually abused by a killer who had no history of sexual abuse. 

2. John Walsh met Reve (his wife) when she was 16 years old (she got into the bar with a fake id) and Mr. Walsh was either 22 or 23 years old. He knew she was below the age of consent in New York and it is said he breathed a sigh of relief after she turned 17 years old many months after they began dating. So, if the Adam Walsh Act had existed in 1967 or 1968 Mr. Walsh would be a Registered Sex Offender today for any sexual contact he had with an under aged female, otherwise why did he "breathe a sigh of relief"?. 

3. Mr. Walsh has a history of inflating statistics of abducted and missing children in the U.S. AND the number of Unregistered/Absconded Sex Offenders to hype the danger level and to gain media attention and political support. He intentional ignores actual facts and statistics that don’t support his initiatives and he turns to fear-mongering to push through flawed laws and mandates. 

4. In 2006 Mr. Walsh told Senators to implant "exploding" chips in the anuses of sex offenders. He stated, "I said implant it in their anus and if they go outside the radius, explode it, that would send a big message." 

OK, now the latest on John Walsh’s petty tactics to get what he wants.

John Walsh plans to name names to get bill named after son reauthorized, September 21, 2015

Frustrated by the gridlock in Congress, John Walsh is headed back to Capitol Hill. And this time, the former longtime “America’s Most Wanted” host says he’s ready to name names in order to get lawmakers to reauthorize a bill named after his son. 

“The Adam Walsh Act is stuck in that morass of Capitol Hill that’s only focused in on who’s going to be the next president,” Walsh says. “So I’m now going back to what I did since 1981, since my son was murdered: To walk the halls, and get senators and congressmen to get it out of committee and get it reauthorized. It was passed unanimously.”
 


Former President George W. Bush signed the federal statute, which created a national sex offender registry, in 2006. The bipartisan legislation was named for Walsh’s 6-year-old son, who was murdered after being abducted from a Florida shopping mall. 

Walsh plans to lobby lawmakers in the coming weeks to reauthorize the act. 

“So I go back to saddle up, because everybody’s so obsessed with this vitriolic gridlock. Republicans hating and dissing Democrats. Vice versa. Government’s ground down to a halt. I think Americans don’t realize how bad it is. It’s the worst I’ve seen it since 1981,” exclaims Walsh. 

ITK recently caught up with the television personality and host of CNN’s “The Hunt” at an intimate dinner at the newly opened Cities Restaurant & Lounge in downtown Washington. Publicist Janet Donovan, Hollywood on the Potomac and Cities owner Michael Kosmides hosted the event. Walsh was in town spreading the word about the Justice Network, where he serves as spokesman. 

The face of the digital multicast network touts the fact that the outlet airs photos and information about missing children every hour. 

“Now that ‘America’s Most Wanted’ is off the air, parents of long-term missing children have no resources. They have nowhere to go,” Walsh recalls of what he told Justice Network execs at their initial meeting. “'I want you to run pictures of missing children every hour. I know it’ll cost advertising time,'” Walsh, the co-founder of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, told them. 

“And they went, ‘That’s a good idea.’” 

So far, Walsh says, there have been 27 recoveries of missing kids, whose photos have been shown on the Justice Network since January, including one direct recovery. 

Beyond his role with the new network, Walsh says he intends to go on a media blitz, making the cable and network news rounds to get the word out about lawmakers who aren’t on board with the reauthorization of the act.

“I’m going to name your name. I’m going to say, ‘You are Senator so-and-so, or you’re a member of the House, and you’re holding it up.’ That’s the only way to do it, to really call them out.” 

Lawmakers, says Walsh, all too often play the blame game when he meets with them at the Capitol. “You’ll go and see them and they say, ‘She’s holding it up. He’s not getting the hearing for it. And he hasn’t called. Thanks for coming, Mr. Walsh. You’re a great guy, an American institution.’” 

“And I go, ‘Bullshit. It’s in your committee. You’re up for reelection,’” Walsh exclaims. 

When asked by ITK what the solution to the gridlock on the Hill is, Walsh, 69, replies bluntly, “Get them the hell out of there.” 

Term limits, he says, could ease the impasse in Congress. 

Some lawmakers, he says, “They got people making decisions for them, they’re in a coma. There are guys that have been there too long. It should be based on how much good legislation you can get passed, you know, what you’re really doing up there, not that ‘I want to be senator or congressman for life.’”
