A stealthy cellphone-armed student busted Principal Steve McClenning and assistant Billie Madewell, both married to other people, tongue wrestling at Scholars Academy in Quartzsite, Arizona. The future of the tiny school, already in danger of losing its charter, is not looking good after this scandal, which has resulted in the respective resignation and firing of the principal and secretary.

After fleeing cross country and making a very public breakup announcement, an 18-year-old Modesto student has moved back in with her 41-year-old former teacher.

The revelation that Jordan Powers and James Hooker are together again came Tuesday, the same day legislation inspired by their relationship was rejected in the state Legislature.

Neighbors at Hooker’s studio apartment in Modesto reported seeing the couple together last weekend. Tuesday, Powers answered the knock of a Sacramento TV reporter and confirmed that they were reunited.

Management of the gated complex turned away media Tuesday afternoon and the couple did not answer calls or texts. But Tammie Powers, Jordan’s mother, said her daughter left the Ohio home where she was staying several days ago.

A man whose apartment sits across from Hooker’s said he saw the couple together Tuesday.

“I’m highly shocked she’s back here,” he said. “I thought her mom would talk some sense into her. But it shows how much he is in her head now.”

The teen’s about-face came about a week after she left the state, furious with Hooker after his April 6 arrest by Modesto police on a sex charge involving a different student 14 years ago.

Jordan Powers called her mother after officers left, and Tammie Powers helped her pack her bags.

“She requested the distance. She asked to fly to Ohio. He’s just not going to let her go,” Tammie Powers said Tuesday.

Hooker remains out on bail but will return to court May 15 to face a charge of oral copulation with a 17-year-old in 1998. That girl attended a different Modesto high school and said she met him at a business club event he attended as a Davis High adviser.

The day after the arrest, Jordan Powers told ABC News, “He called me from jail and, yes, I told him that we’re done.”

She said Hooker had lied to her about the earlier affair. “I lost everything for this guy. I lost my senior year. I gave up all my friends at high school because they didn’t agree with me,” she told the network.

Now she is back with Hooker, in the romance the couple revealed first in The Modesto Bee  and later defended on network and syndicated TV shows. The pair gained notoriety after Hooker left his wife and three daughters, quit his teaching job and moved Powers into his apartment in February.

Both adamantly insist they were not physically involved until months after she turned 18 in September. Police, however, are investigating thousands of text messages sent between the two, including some that predate her birthday.

After Jordan left the state April 6, Tammie Powers said Hooker called the teen “relentlessly,” and she acknowledged that her daughter began talking with him daily.

“She left on her own. She hired a cab and booked her own flight,” Tammie Powers said.

At this point, Jordan Powers has cut off all contact with her relatives, Tammie Powers said.

“It is awful. This is what pedophiles, predators do. They isolate them from family,” Tammie Powers said.

News of the couple’s reunion came the same day that a bill proposing to outlaw such teacher-student relationships was killed in the Assembly Public Safety Committee.

Assembly Bill 1861 by Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen, R-Modesto, would have made it a felony for a teacher to have a romantic relationship with a student at the same school, regardless of the student’s age. Laws already protect students younger than 18. The bill’s primary impact would have been on high school seniors. Teachers convicted of a work-related felony would have lost their pensions.

“Today’s vote is a win for predators and union bosses and a loss for parents and students,” said Olsen. “We need to do everything we can to protect our children and to ensure schools are a safe and secure learning environment.”

Democrats killed the legislation, saying too many questions surround the bill, which also would have banned sexual communications between teachers and any students at their school.

Valerie Small Navarro of the American Civil Liberties Union said the ban on sexual messages was overly broad and could chill discussion on “The Great Gatsby,” “The Color Purple” and other novels.

Olsen countered that she would be willing to amend AB 1861 to address curriculum concerns.

Assemblywoman Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, said she opposed singling out one group of public employees — school workers — for potential loss of pension rights.

Cindy and I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday. Thanks to Kelsey, Greg, and another helpful viewer who chose to remain anonymous, it has been determined that the Jordan Powers in the image above: Jordan Powers – Third from Left  is NOT the Jordan Powers involved in the teacher-student sex scandal.

This is the first retraction we have ever had to make, outside of a computer-generated UFO clip that managed to fool me a few months ago. All other Jordan Powers images are authentic. We’ve been covering this story since the day it broke, with three separate articles up online. In an effort to post the best available pics for our viewers, this one slipped through the cracks. There were actually a few Jordan Powers out there in cyberspace to weed through, a chore which took a while to accomplish the day this story broke and this particular photograph went up online.


In other news — Saturday marked the greatest number of hits The Dirty Lowdown has ever amassed in a single day: 9,322. We were hoping to break 10K but it kinda fell off a cliff between 10:30 and midnight, and ended-up falling just short…



A high school teacher who left his family to date a former student was arrested yesterday on charges of sexually assaulting a different student years ago.

James Hooker, 41, was arrested in Modesto, Calif., after police discovered he had an an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student in 1998. Hooker has been under investigation for his involvement with 18-year-old Jordan Powers, his former business class student, with whom he appeared on national TV programs earlier this year to profess his love.

Hooker was charged with one count of oral copulation with a minor and is in jail, according to a statement from Modesto police. Hooker allegedly befriended the victim while teaching at Enochs High School, and developed a romantic relationship with the student. Hooker then allegedly sexually assaulted the then 17-year-old girl.

Hooker and Powers spoke publicly about their relationship in March, days after Hooker quit his job as a teacher at Enochs in order to move into an apartment with Powers the same day. Hooker left his wife and children, including a 17-year-old daughter who attends Enoch High School, in order to date Powers.

“He’s my best friend. I mean, he’s more than just a lover,”  Powers has said of Hooker.

The couple has said that their relationship evolved over time and did not become romantic until Powers turned 18.

Powers has stopped taking classes at the school but still plans to graduate this spring through independent study.

Detectives initially began to investigate Hooker after Powers’ mother reported an alleged inappropriate relationship between them, citing phone records showing long, late-night phone calls and more than 8,000 text messages between the couple, which began before her daughter turned 18.

Tammie Powers has been an outspoken critic of the relationship, waging a Facebook campaign against Hooker and appearing on national TV to condemn his actions.

“He shouldn’t be with kids,”  she said. “I’d like to see him arrested. I’d like to get information from when she was a minor and have him arrested.”

Hooker, however, has repeatedly said his relationship with Powers is legitimate.

“Love will overcome everything, “  Hooker told a therapist, who spoke to ABC News. “I love my children. I love Jordan. I think that you’re making judgment calls. And I think that we’ll prove you wrong.”

Meanwhile… Jordan Powers, the California student who left school, her family and her friends to live with her teacher boyfriend, has ended the relationship and moved out of the apartment the two shared  after the teacher was arrested on charges of sexually assaulting another girl 14 years ago.

“He called me from jail and yes, I told him that we’re done,”  Powers  told ABC News in an exclusive interview. “I lost everything for this guy. I lost my senior year. I gave up all my friends at high school because they didn’t agree with me.”

As for Hooker’s arrest and the surrounding details of the prior illicit affair, Powers had this to say:

“He told me that he met her online and he hung out with her just as friends and then he went to her house and she came out of the bathroom naked and he only touched her boobs and her legs,”  Powers said. “He was freaked-out, so he left and went home. He said nothing else happened, but all of that was a lie.”

Despite the charges, Powers said nothing happened romantically between her and Hooker prior to her 18th birthday.

The teen said she believed the woman came forward now to help her see the truth about Hooker and rescue her from the relationship.

“My heart dropped. I felt betrayed. I just have a gut feeling there are other girls,”  Jordan Powers said.

Her mother, Tammie Powers, who has publicly tried to end the romance from the beginning, expressed relief at Hooker’s arrest. “It’s my contention all along that he used authority and that he’s a predator,”  she said.

But a reconciliation between mother and daughter isn’t happening just yet. Jordan Powers said she is staying with a family friend in another state while she recovers from her heartbreak.

“How could he lie to me for all these months and look me in the eye and tell me he loves me?”  she said. “I don’t know how someone could have such a cold heart.”

The mother of an 18-year-old high school student who ran off with one of her teachers, confronted the pair on national television this week.

Tammie Powers had waged a Facebook campaign since her daughter moved out of the family’s home earlier this month and into a Modesto apartment with 41-year-old James Hooker.

Tuesday she finally confronted the controversial couple on the Dr. Phil show. She told Hooker that he had “no moral compass” and that he had “brainwashed” her daughter.

“I think you are arrogant,”  Powers said. “I think you are self-serving. I think you are selfish. I think you are ruining my child with this.”

Powers questioned the legality of Hooker’s relationship with her daughter. She said the couple frequently exchanged text messages before Jordan Powers turned 18.

The couple said they were all messages within the sphere of a student-teacher relationship and that things did not get sexual until after Jordan Powers turned 18.

Hooker quit his teaching job at Enochs High School and left his wife and children to live with Jordan Powers.

One of his daughters was a classmate of Powers’ at the school.

America’s now so demoralized we can’t even trust our teachers not to molest our kids


James Hooker, a 41-year-old Enochs High School teacher in Modesto, California  has resigned and moved in with an 18-year-old student, Jordan Powers.

The reaction has been largely shock, disapproval and betrayal.

The teen’s mother has waged a very public campaign on Facebook since last week, when her daughter moved out of the family’s home and into a Modesto apartment with the man. He has left his wife and children, one of whom is a junior at Enochs.

Police say the case is under investigation, with pending criminal charges a possibility.

I love to harp on this at every available opportunity, in case you can’t tell. And I’ll tell you why: this is not only where we’re at, but why.

This is what the face of the multigenerational demoralization campaign aimed at America and Americans looks like. This is its symptomology.

This is the problem.

It’s really the key… to all of this, where we’re at now, and why.

This gentleman is sitting up there looking like what he just did was okay. What he just did is unacceptable 100% of the time. It is not okay. It’s an immoral breech of parental trust and professional etiquette — in each and every case, bar none. You don’t do it.

And we haven’t even gotten into the whole concept of suddenly packing up and walking out on your own wife and kids, one of whom goes to the same school as your new live-in love doll.

This is how we get bad government. This is actually not only how things are, but why. The kind of hostile takeover we’re witnessing now would have had zero chance of legitimate success without decades of strategic preparation ahead of time by way of thorough intentional demoralization.



1)  To undermine the confidence or morale of; dishearten.

2)  To put into disorder; confuse.

3)  To debase the morals of; corrupt.

Pay particular attention to number 3. This element of demoralization is typically not considered, but is actually the critical, key destructive element. It is due to this programming component we have 41 year-old schoolteachers abandoning their wives and children for other children attending their classes and molesting them as minors…

And it is due to this critical factor we have public servants in DC, selling out the country for a dollar, traitors all. These people have been busy taking money and signing off on bills they don’t even know what’s inside.   

Now that this thing’s gone multigenerational we now have an accumulative, or compound  effect, and we have mature adults who were literally spawned and reared on this programming now, and we have them now carrying titles like Professor  or Senator or Congressman, but they’ve been brought up from the cradle on this programming, their heads are stuffed full of it, their thinking fundamentally transformed.

So now we have soulless vermin in Washington who sell their own country, all its sovereign citizens, everything that it stands for, its cultural heritage and the very freedom of all future generations, down the river, because virtually all of them are either corrupted or compromised. And they’ve been brought up on this subversive and corrosive programming which leads the naturally healthy mind toward a psychopathic state, characterized chiefly by:

Lack of Empathy * Lack of Remorse * Self-Centeredness * A Sense of Superiority * Deceptiveness * Glib, Superficial Charm * Over-Dependence on Instant Gratification – Sex, Drugs, Alcohol, Etc. * Absence of Any Strong Religious or Spiritual Connection * Minimizing One’s Own Transgressions * Rationalizing Bad Behavior and Poor Judgment * Shifting Blame Onto Others * Engaging in Shallow, Superficial, Materialistic Relationships

The Global Elite now own Washington. DC’s been bought and sold. They’re all up there selling us out for perks, power and privilege, and they’ve been doing it right along… and they’re shoving it right in our faces, they’re not even trying to hide it anymore.

These people have been getting rich while we’ve been getting robbed, going bankrupt, losing all of our civil rights, losing our lives and limbs in their illegal wars propagated on lies, watching our homes and our businesses go up in smoke, and watching our families and our intimate relationships disintegrate and get torn apart in the process, and I’ve got to tell you that every bit of it falls back on this subversive demoralization campaign.

Because only in a thoughly demoralized society would you spawn this type of bureaucrat in the first place, and only in a thoroughly demoralized society could this type of parasite get away with what they’ve been getting away with, and with almost total impunity.

Only in a thoroughly demoralized society would the same Senators and Congressman who signed off on bills such as ObamaCare and the NDAA still be in office after the next election. Only in a thoroughly demoralized nation would Obama’s approval rating now actually be rising, given all that’s transpired since his fraudulent election.

Only in a thoroughly demoralized society do all these things happen.
