Update: The Queen has previously been implicated by Kevin Annett over at ITCCS where indigenous native children went missing after a visit by Philip and Elizabeth but this second video (now removed) is even further testimony that the Queen is part of the Paedophile and snuff movie elite. As Bill explains. It’s not sexual.
Why Does The Royal Family Hire Child Rapists
Over the last year, an average of more than 14,000 people have searched for her name every month.
There are at least ten different Facebook groups dedicated to her.
And at a recent court appearance by Tommy Robinson, it was her name that was being chanted by supporters.
But who exactly is Melanie Shaw, why is she in prison – and what are her supporters calling for?
The simple answer is that Melanie was one of the very first people to make allegations of sexual abuse at Beechwood children’s home in Nottingham.
But have a quick browse of the internet and you will find a host of further answers involving buried bodies, secret court hearings, and Westminster paedophile rings.
We have therefore attempted to tell Melanie’s story below, as best as we can. It won’t answer all of the questions about her, but it will hopefully provide some detail which might not be immediately available to everyone.
Melanie was born in October 1970, and was placed in foster care at a young age.
She grew up in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, and from 1981 to 1987 she was at Ashfield Comprehensive School in the town.
When she was 16 she was sent to Beechwood children’s home in Mapperley. She stayed there for around a year.
When she left, she overcame drug problems, started doing voluntary work.
In an interview broadcast in 2015, she described how she was a full-time mother for 24 years before she decided to speak out about what had happened at the children’s home.
In 2010 she went to the police to report what had happened to her at Beechwood, and was one of the first people to do so.
In more recent years she has lived in Sherwood and Sneinton.
What does Melanie say happened to her in Beechwood?
Melanie said that she was raped in the basement of the Lindens unit at Beechwood in Mapperley, and was physically and sexually abused.
She has spoken about one particular member of staff who she said had threatened to kill her ‘like the others’ if she spoke out over abuse. She said he told her that he had already murdered and buried two children in the grounds of Beechwood.
And she also said that, while she had never been abused by a politician, she was aware of young boys from Beechwood being taken by minibus down to London to be abused by ‘the rich and elite’.
No charges have been brought against anyone who she alleged had assaulted her at Beechwood. And she has said she has a fear that she is going to be found dead.
Why is she in prison?
As far as Nottinghamshire Live is aware, Melanie has been either convicted of or found to have carried out offences on five different occasions since 2014.
In December 2014 at Nottingham Crown Court, she was convicted of arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered, and damaging property. She was given a community order for three years and a five-year restraining order.
In February 2016 at Nottingham Crown Court, she was given three restraining orders, fined £200, and handed a three-month prison sentence for displaying threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour to cause another harassment, alarm, or distress; and two counts of pursuing a course of conduct which amounted to harassment.
In January 2017 at Nottingham Crown Court, she was given two years in prison; six months for breach of a suspended sentence order, nine months for breach of a restraining order, and nine months for breach of a separate restraining order.
In March 2017 at Derby Crown Court she was given eight months in prison; eight months in prison for making a threat to kill; three months(concurrent) for common assault, and one month (concurrent) for damaging property.
And in October 2018 at Leeds Crown Court, a jury found that Melanie – who was deemed unfit to stand trial – had committed three counts of arson being reckless as to whether property was damaged or destroyed. She will sentenced for this on January 14.
The Ministry of Justice does not give out information on release dates for individual prisoners.
Obviously, even in the event that Melanie served the full term of her two-year sentence from January 11, 2017, she would be due for release in January 2019.
However, she has been remanded in custody in connection with the arson offences which she is being sentenced for on January 14.
You can see a list of Melanie’s court appearances at the bottom of this story.
Where has she been held?
Melanie has been held in a number of different prisons. These include, but are not necessarily limited to, HMP Peterborough, HMP Foston Hall in Derby, HMP New Hall in Flockton near Wakefield, HMP Eastwood Park in Gloucestershire, and HMP Styal in Cheshire.
There have been a number of rumours online about Melanie being moved to Rampton in north Nottinghamshire. But her supporters sent her Christmas cards to HMP Styal.
What do the authorities say?
In terms of the allegations made by Melanie, Nottinghamshire Police said: “Nottinghamshire Police investigated all of the allegations thoroughly. Where the threshold was met, the CPS considered the evidence.
“Unfortunately, it was determined that the evidential test was not passed and, as such, no prosecutions brought.
“Our enquiries have also not identified any unaccounted-for people at Beechwood Children’s Home.
“Searches were carried out at Beechwood in February 2012.
“The work was undertaken by us in conjunction with national search advisors and searches were made of the grounds and building. It included the use of search dogs and radar following concerns reported by a member of the public.
“Nothing was identified at the time that supported the reports.”
Nottingham East MP Chris Leslie said: “Melanie Shaw first contacted me several years ago, since when I have offered support as I would to any constituent in her circumstances. I have continued to enquire after Melanie’s welfare, including with the prison.
“It would be inappropriate and not responsible of me to discuss the details of these highly sensitive matters with anyone other than Melanie or her legal representatives, who are always welcome to contact me at any time.
“However, over many years now there have been stories circulating about Melanie’s case, and most of the posts circulating on social media are wildly inaccurate.”
Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I’ve known Melanie for many years and we have talked about the difficulties she has faced.
“It’s disappointing that she is in prison while she waits for sentencing later this month, but we are doing what we can to help her and we are regularly in touch with the professional people who support her.
“However, in the short term this is a matter for the Crown Court.”
The two legal firms in Nottingham which represent Melanie for civil and criminal matters said they could not comment without explicit permission from their client, which has not yet been obtained.
The Ministry of Justice said they do not comment on individual cases.
What do her supporters want?
Although the various groups come from slightly different angles – with some focusing more on the what happened at Beechwood and others on the London/Westminster allegations – they all want Melanie out of prison.
A member of the Justice for Melanie Shaw group, which has been running since 2014, said that, taking into the account the time Melanie had spent on remand, she should have been released from prison in June 2018 following the completion of her two-year sentence.
She said: “I think she is being persecuted, and I can’t help thinking it’s a set-up. They wanted her in prison, and they’ve got her in prison.
“I’m not going to pretend Melanie is an angel. She can be a bit of a handful. Even if you think she’s all right, you still have to be a bit wary of how she can react, which is because of what she’s been through.
“But what is happening to her now is disproportionate to what she is supposed to have done. Prisoners set fire to their cells every day of the week.
“If it isn’t a conspiracy, why are they making it look like one?”
She added: “We’ve always believed that the police weren’t trying their hardest to investigate the fate of children who had allegedly died at Beechwood – allegations I believe there is truth in.
“I’m prepared to believe that when Melanie went to the police she produced quite a bit of evidence about what she was saying.
“Melanie said she gave evidence to the police and it disappeared. I can’t prove that’s true, but that’s what she said.
“I think it’s accepted that the authorities didn’t know how many children were in care – and what happened to those who disappeared.”
Melanie’s court appearances
Nottinghamshire Live contacted eight courts – Nottingham Crown Court, Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, Derby Crown Court, Derby Magistrates’ Court, Peterborough Crown Court, Peterborough Magistrates’ Court, Cambridge Crown Court and Leeds Crown Court – in order to try and get a full picture of Melanie’s court appearances.
Nottingham Magistrates’ Court declined to provide information about Melanie’s court appearances. However, some information about her appearances at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court was provided by another court.
It remains a slightly confusing picture, with different parts of the criminal justice system giving – at times – conflicting information about her court history.
But as far as we can best establish, these are Melanie’s court appearances since 2014. Not all will necessarily have been appearances in person, as some may have been by videolink.

Many ritual child abuse cases never are prosecuted due to the disbelief of authorities or the unlikelihood that young, severely traumatized children will be able to withstand cross-examination. A 1993 survey by the American Bar Association’s Center on Children and Family Law determined that 26 percent of prosecutors nationwide have handled cases involving “ritualistic or sexual abuse.” (Ross, 1994). The ritualistic aspects of the crimes often are not presented in court but are clearly indicated in the victims’ accounts.*
Three teenagers were convicted in the cult killings of three 8-year-old boys. Michael Wayne ‘Damien” Echols, 19, and Charles Jason Baldwin, 16, were convicted March 18, 1994, on three counts each of capitol murder. (Chicago Tribune, 1994). A jury recommended the death penalty for Echols and life in prison without pareole for Baldwin. (Sullivan, 1994). A third teenager, Jessie Lloyd Misskelley, Jr., 18, was convicted in February 1994, of one count of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder. He is serving a prison sentence of life plus 40 years. (Beifuss, 1994)
Misskelley confessed to his role in the killings, telling police the murders were linked to a cult ritual that included the rape and mutilation of victims. (Chicago Tribune, 1993). West Memphis police detective Bryn Ridge testified that elements in the case pointed to the work of a satanic cult. (Sullivan, 1994).
Steve Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore disappeared while riding their bicycles in May 1993. Their nude bodies were found the next day in a drainage ditch. The boys had been bound, raped and beaten. (Chicago Tribune, 1993). One child had been sexually mutilated. One witness testified that one of the defendants drank the victim’s blood. (Sullivan, 1994).
During the trial prosecutors presented evidence suggesting that Echols was a satanist. Acquaintances said Echols carried a cat’s skull to school, wrote satanic poems, and claimed to worship the devil. (Chicago Tribune, 1993). During his first police interview Echols told Detective Ridge that his favorite author was Anton LaVey, author of The Satanic Bible. (Sullivan, 1994). Mental health records indicate that Echols’ parents expressed concern about his possible involvement in “satanism or devil worship” when he was hospitalized in 1992. Just four months prior to the murders a clinician noted: “Damien explained that he obtains his powers by drinking blood of others.” (Sullivan, 1994).
One item brought to the attention of police was an underground newsletter published by a cousin of Echols’ 16-year-old girlfriend. The 1991 edition of the Secret Order of the Undead or “SOUND” featured a drawing of a winged demon molesting a woman, a list of 13 songs “suitable to accompany any ritualistic murder” and a column instructing children on how to build a homemade land mine. (Perrusquia, 1993).
Alvin and Deborah McCuan, Scott and Brenda Kniffen, and Rodney and Linda Phelps (parents of Deborah McCuan) were indicted in 1982 on charges of sexually molesting children. The alleged victims included their own children, traded between families and used for group sex, as well as children from the Bluebird troop run by Deborah McCuan and the unlicensed day care facility in her home. The McCuans and Kniffens were convicted on all counts in 1983, drawing aggregate prison terms in excess of 1,000 years. The Phelps fled town and disapeared after being charged with 33 counts.
Ritual elements in the case were ignored by authorities at the time. (Newton, 1996).
In August 1996, a judge overturned the child molestation convictions of Alvin and Deborah McCuan and Scott and Brenda Kniffen.** (Northwest Herald, August 14, 1996).
A second intrafamilial child-sex ring was exposed and prosecuted in Bakersfield, with trials continuing into 1985. Five adult defendants were convicted, including: Richard Cox, 47 (14 counts); Ruth Ann Taylor, 31 (14 counts); Anthony Cox, 25 (7 counts); George Cox, 24 (7 counts); and Theresa Cox, 21 (3 counts). Prison terms ranged from 10 to 41 years. (Newton, 1996).
Seven defendants in another Bakersfield child-sex ring were convicted in August 1985, with multiple charges including child molestation and endangerment, assault with a deadly weapon, and production of child pornography. Wayne Forsythe, 28, was convicted on 41 separate counts. Other defendants, each convicted on a minimum of 50 counts, included Forsythe’s wife, Colleen Dill Forsythe, 26; Ricky Pitts, 31, and his wife Marcella Pitts, 29; Wayne Dill, 26 (Colleen Forsythe’s brother); Grace Dill, 50 (mother of Colleen Forsythe and Wayne Dill); and Gina Miller. Cumulative prison sentences in the case came to 2,100 years. (Newton, 1996).
Leroy George Stowe III was convicted on 16 counts of child molestation and sentenced to 30 years in March 1985. Shortly after his conviction, victims in the case expanded their disclosures to include graphic descriptions of satanic ritual abuse and murders, involving nine more defendants.
In January 1987, Gerardo Gonzales (facing 117 charges) pleaded no contest to one count of molesting a 5-year-old girl, and Rev. Willard Lee Thomas (facing 43 charges) pleaded no contest on two counts, including child endangerment and unlawful sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old girl. Both defendants were released from jail on the basis of time served, and charges against the remaining defendants were dismissed as part of their plea bargain.
In February 1987, a California appeals court reversed Leroy Stowe’s conviction on 12 of 16 felony counts, with the grounds cited as a technical insufficiency in the pleadings.** (Newton, 1996).
San Diego County
Robert S. Wilkins, 38, and Lori Elizabeth Bartz, 22, were convicted in July 1987 on 8 counts of sexual abuse involving children from Bartz’s unlicensed day-care center. The original list of charges, dating back to 1984, included 92 counts of sex acts forced upon girls aged 10 to 15. The victims described displays of weapons, threats, and occult rituals in which Bartz pretended to channel the voice of Satan, telling the children “This is the devil; do as I say.” Both defendants received long prison terms. (Newton, 1996).
Darryl Ball and Charlotte Thrailkill plea bargained on molestation charges and were sentenced to substantial prison terms. The prosecutor’s opening statement referred to the ritual aspect of the crimes, and child victims described satanic ceremonies which included ritual murders.
Philip and Michael Schmidt pleaded guilty to molesting children attending the day care center operated by their grandmother, Hazel Riggs, who was sentenced on a lesser charge. A Denver Post report on the case included ritual allegations by a child victim.
William L. Acree, former heroin addict and operator of a halfway house for juvenile delinquents, was convicted in February 1983, on two counts of prostituting children and one count of sexually assaulting a child. Acree was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with 5 years suspended on the condition that he undergo psychiatric counseling for at least 4 years.
The victims were male, ages 10 – 17 years old, who displayed satanic tattoos and described themselves as members of Acree’s “coven.” (Newton, 1996).
Kerri Lynn Patavino, 28, a school bus driver, was convicted in August 1996 of statutory rape for seducing a 14-year-old boy who said she engaged him in strange rituals during sex. (Northwest Herald, 1996).
The boy testified that Patavino once cut her arm with a razor blade and forced him to lick her blood. According to police, Patavino sent the boy love letters decorated with occult symbols and signed in her blood. During the trial, Patavino wore a pentagram medallion around her neck. (The News-Times, 1996).
Patavino was sentenced to six years in prison. (Northwest Herald, 1996).
Francisco Fuster, 36, was convicted in 1985 on 14 counts of child abuse and sentenced to a minimum of 165 years in prison. Fuster had previously been convicted of lewd and lascivious assault on a 9-year-old girl and had served four years in prison for homicide. More than 50 children accused Fuster and his wife, Iliana, of abuse that included feces-eating, drugging, pornography, animal killings and anal rape with a crucifix. Fuster’s 7-year-old son was treated for gonorrhea of the throat.
Iliana Fuster, a 17-year-old native of Honduras, also claimed to have been battered and sexually abused by Fuster. She confessed to her role in the crimes against the children and testified against her husband. Iliana Fuster received a 10-year sentence. (Hollingsworth, 1986).
James Toward, 58, owner of Glendale Montessori School, pleaded guilty to child sexual abuse charges and received a 15-year sentence. His office manager, Brenda Williams, 30, was convicted in 1989 and sentenced to 6 years in prison.
Children described being threatened with guns and knives, photographed for pornographic purposes, and forced to participate in sadistic rituals. (The Orlando Sentinel, 1989).
Walter P. West, Jr., a former juvenile officer, pleaded guilty on June 20, 1994, to 33 counts of sexual abuse. West was sentenced to 20 years in prison, 20 years probation, and ordered never to be alone with children.
Prosecutors said that West engaged in oral and anal sex with as many as 13 children, fondled them, forced them to engage in sex acts with other children, and filmed the assaults. Most of his victims were pre-adolescent children who had problems at school and with the law. The youngest victim named in the indictment was six years old. (The Atlanta Journal/The Atlanta Constitution, 1994).
According to a case overview prepared by a special education teacher who reported the abuse, some of the children said West forced them to engage in bestiality and exposed them to animal killings. Other adults in the community were implicated but no additional arrests were made. (McCullers, 1994).
Robbie Moore, a self-avowed “warlock,” was convicted on January 30, 1997, of three counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Moore, 28, of Danville, Illinois, was arrested in June 1996 when several children, some as young as 4 years old, complained of being sexually abused after joining an informal witchcraft club led by Moore and Kimberly Harris. Harris, 26, pleaded guilty in October 1996 to fondling a 13-year-old girl and is serving a 7-year prison term.
Sgt. John Howard, a juvenile officer with the Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department, said that “there appeared to be a connection” between the sexual abuse and what he called “occult activity.” Prosecutors said Moore talked about black magic to both lure and terrorize his victims.
Moore was sentenced to 67 years in prison. (Kelley, 1997 and S.O.A.R., 1997).
Michael Joseph Schildmeyer, 22, was convicted on second-degree sexual abuse of a 4-year-old boy and sentenced to 25 years in prison. The child testified that Schildmeyer abused him at the Sunshine Preschool and Day Care Center operated by Schildmeyer’s wife. The unlicensed center was shut down by the state after children began disclosing ritualistic acts involving stuffed animal decapitations, animal killings, and bondage with ropes and chains. (Hubert, 1989).
Gerald Amirault, 32, was convicted in 1986 of 15 counts of child abuse, including rape and indecent assault, and sentenced to 30 to 40 years in prison. Nine children who attended the Fells Acre Day Care Center testified that Amirault sexually assaulted them in a “magic room” while dressed as a clown. One child testified that small animals were killed. (Ross, 1986).
His mother, Violet Amirault, 62, owner of the school, and her daughter, Cheryl Amirault LeFave, were given 8- to 20-year sentences.
In August 1995, a judge ordered new trials for Violet Amirault and Cheryl Amirault LeFave.** (Rabinowitz, 1995).
On March 24, 1997, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts ruled against granting new trials for Violet Amirault, Gerald Amirault and Cheryl LeFave. The court determined that any flaws at trial were outweighed by the evidence presented by the prosecution. (The Survivor Activist, 1997).
Bernard Baran, Jr., a 19-year-old teacher’s aide at a day care center, was convicted of child molestation in January 1985. He was sentenced to life, with parole possible in 15 years. Children testified that he threatened to kill their parents if they disclosed the abuse. (Newton, 1996).
Allan Barkman, co-owner of Small World Preschool, was convicted in April, 1985, of molesting a 5-year-old boy and sentenced to 50 to 75 years in prison. Children told authorities they were driven to barns where Barkman photographed them and tore off the head of a chicken. Children said Barkman’s wife, who was not charged, dressed up as a witch. (Ross, 1986). Barkman’s conviction was later reversed on appeal.** (Newton, 1996).
On October 20, 1994, Stephen Rogers, 30, and his live-in girlfriend, Trudy O’Connor, 32, were found guilty of first-degree child abuse of a 9-year-old girl. The girl, Roger’s daughter, was found in a dark walk-in closet by Sanilac County sheriff’s deputies. The child was shackled by her ankle to a urine-soaked bed. Her arms had been tied behind her back with a harness made of socks and safety pins. The only other thing in the closet was a large, frightening Halloween mask, which hung directly over the bed.
Family members said that Rogers and O’Connor believed the child was “possessed.” The girl’s maternal grandmother reported suspected sexual abuse in 1989 and 1990, after the little girl returned from visiting Rogers. A medical examination confirmed scar tissue. Teachers from the girl’s school testified that she appeared malnourished, had bruises, cuts and burns on her body, and often smelled of urine. (Flint Journal, 1994).
James John Rud, a 27-year-old garbage collector with two previous sex abuse convictions, agreed to plead guilty and testify against other defendants accused of abusing children in sex orgies, in exchange for a lighter sentence. Rud gave police a 113-page statement in which he graphically described sadistic assaults on children. (Emmerman, 1984).
Children ranging in age from 2 to 17 years old described being molested by their parents, relatives and family friends during ritualistic orgies. The children talked about playing games with adults that culminated in sexual assaults and said they had been drugged with alcohol and pills. Many referred to being photographed nude and of seeing child pornography in Rud’s trailer. (Crewdson, 1984).
In addition to Rud, 24 adults were charged with molesting 37 children. (Emmerman, 1984). Two defendants were tried and acquitted when one child witness recanted his accusation of abuse. (Chicago Tribune, 1984). The prosecutor dropped the charges against all other defendants to avoid releasing 126 pages of police notes containing allegations that implicated some of the former defendants in ritualistic child murders. (Ogintz, 1984).
In January 1985, Rud was sentenced to 40 years in prison, the maximum sentence allowable by law. (Chicago Tribune, 1985).
Danny Walter Schertz, 48, a self-avowed former satanist, was sentenced to 9 years in prison without parole for selling a 16-year-old girl into prostitution. Schertz pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping by trickery and transporting a minor across state lines for prosecution.
F.B.I. agent Leonardo Floyd of Columbus, Mississippi, said Schertz controlled the girl with stories of his satanic powers and threats of harm to the girl and her family. Schertz forced the girl to have satanic symbols tattooed onto her leg and buttocks and to have body piercings in her private parts without anesthesia. (Kraft, 1996).
Martha Helen Felix and her nephew, Felix “Paco” Ontiveros, were convicted of crimes against children who were placed in their babysitting service. At a preliminary hearing in 1985, children referred to drinking blood, killing animals, and other rituals. Defendants’ photographs of “mummified children” were produced at the hearing. (Ross, 1986).
These convictions were later reversed on appeal.**
Margaret Kelly Michaels, a teacher at the Wee Care Nursery operated by an Episcopal Church was convicted in April 1988 on 115 counts of child sexual abuse and sentenced to 47 years in prison. Nineteen preschool-aged children testified that Michaels sexually abused them and subjected them to rituals involving urine, feces, peanut butter and jelly, bloody tampons and penetration with silverware.
Her conviction was overturned in March 1993 by an appeals court on the grounds that Michaels was denied a fair trial because expert testimony was introduced that should not have been allowed and because child witnesses were allowed to testify via closed-circuit TV.** (Chicago Tribune, 1993).
In December 1994, prosecutors dropped the charges against Michaels in order to spare the children the ordeal of testifying in a second trial. (Chicago Tribune, 1994).
Michaels is suing the prosecutors, seeking $800,000 in attorneys fees. (Chicago Tribune, 1996).
Jeannette Martin, 51, was accused of holding children down while they were raped and sodomized at an unlicensed day care center. Martin was convicted on a misdemeanor child endangerment charge in February 1987, and sentenced to one year in jail.
Co-defendant James Watt, 31, was convicted on 11 rape counts, 5 sodomy counts and one count of child endangerment, and sentenced to 55 – 165 years in prison. In January 1992, an appellate court split 3 to 2 in favor of overturning Watts’ conviction on the grounds that the dates of the offenses alleged in the indictment were “too vague.” ** Two dissenting judges voted to uphold the conviction on 6 counts related to a single victim, but were overruled.
Three female victims were diagnosed with sexually transmitted diseases. (New York Times and New York Law Journal).
Robert F. Kelly, Jr., co-owner of the Little Rascals Day Care Center, was convicted in 1992 on 99 of 100 counts of sexually abusing children. Kelly was sentenced to 12 consecutive life terms, one for each child who testified against him. (Chicago Tribune, April 23-24, 1992).
Twelve children testified that Kelly sexually molested them, forced them to have sex with other children while being photographed, and engaged in sexual acts in the presence of children. The children described being forced to eat feces, threatened with snakes, penetrated with toys, sticks and other objects, hung from trees and tied in bags, and being present while infants were killed. (Allegood, 1991-1992).
Kelly’s conviction was overturned on appeal in 1995.** The court ruled that parents’ testimony about children’s behavioral symptoms was outside the boundaries of permissible opinion from lay witnesses and that testimony from a victim’s father, who had previously been retained as Kelly’s defense attorney, should not have been allowed. (Richissin, 1995).
On May 23, 1997, prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against Robert F. Kelly, Jr. and Kathryn Dawn Wilson. Assistant District Attorney Nancy Lamb said the children’s parents were reluctant to put them through the ordeal of another trial. (Thompson, 1997). Kelly is awaiting trial on eight new counts of sexual abuse unrelated to the day care case. The eight new indictments charge Kelly with raping, abusing and taking indecent liberties with a 9-year-old girl during the summer of 1987. Kelly is free on bond while awaiting trial. (News & Observer, 1996).
Kathryn Dawn Wilson, 27, former cook at Little Rascals, was sentenced in 1993 to life in prison after being convicted of one charge of first-degree sex offense and four charges of taking indecent liberties with a minor. Four children testified that Wilson touched their genitals, forced them to participate in sexual acts, and had sex with Kelly in front of children. (Allegood, 1993).
Wilson’s appeal for a new trial was granted because information about an “irrelevant” theft and Wilson’s history of drug abuse was prejudicial and should have been excluded.** (Richissin, 1995).
Kelly’s wife, Elizabeth T. “Betsy” Kelly, 38, pleaded no contest on January 21, 1994, to 30 charges of abusing 16 children. She was sentenced to seven years in prison. (Allegood, 1994).
Willard Scott Privott, 45, a former video store owner, pleaded no contest June 16, 1994, to over 30 charges of sexually abusing children at the Little Rascals Day Care Center. Sixteen children said that Privott sexually fondled them, forced them to commit sexual acts with other children, with him and with day care employees, and photographed and videotaped the assaults. (Quillin, 1994). Some children allege Privott dressed as a pirate and took them on a boat where they said he molested them, and that he killed babies and fed them to sharks in a tank.
Patrick Figuered, a former electronics firm executive, was sentenced to three consecutive life terms in 1992, after being convicted of sexually abusing three children in 1988. The children, who were between the ages of 2 and 5 years old when the abuse occurred, testified that Figured and his girlfriend, Sonja Hill, molested them at the unlicensed child care center Hill’s mother operated from her home.
The children testified that they were drugged and videotaped during sexual assaults, sodomized with a screwdriver, and forced to participate in satanic rituals in which adults wore capes and masks, lit candles, burned Bibles, and forced children to drink urine and blood. (Soloway, 1992).
Sonja Hill pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting the taking of indecent liberties with children and was sentenced in July 1993, to 10 years in prison. (Eisley, 1993).
Ricky Martin Vernon, a former Boy Scout volunteer, pleaded guilty in 1989 to taking indecent liberties with 13 teenaged boys from 1981 – 1988, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Vernon offered to initiate the boys into “The Order of the Circle.” In order to learn the ways of “The Circle,” they had to participate in religious rituals that included sex acts and a service that mimicked Christian communion. (News & Observer, 1989).
Estella M. Sexton, 47, mother of 12 children, was convicted April 15, 1994, of sexually, physically and psychologically abusing her daughter. The charges relate to abuse that occurred five years ago when the daughter was eight years old. The girl testified that her mother beat her, stripped her and sexually fondled her. An older brother corroborated her story of abuse and described satanic rituals that took place in the home.
Sexton’s older daughter, Estella M. “Pixie” Good, 24, pleaded guilty earlier in 1994 to manslaughter in the death of her baby. She told authorities she smothered the baby after her father complained about the baby’s crying. (Knox, 1994).
Two teenage babysitters at the First Presbyterian Church were convicted of sexually abusing children while the victims’ parents attended church services. Lawrence Rohde, 19, was convicted in 1992 on 7 counts of gross sexual imposition and sentenced to 14 years in prison. (Boyd, 1992). Scott Butner, 17, pleaded guilty to 5 counts of rape and received a 5 to 10-year prison sentence. (Trexler, 1992).
As many as 50 children described being sexually abused and taken from the church to wooded areas where they said they were forced to participate in child pornography, infanticide, and mutilation of corpses. Victims’ parents demanded that charges be filed against adult church members who allegedly were involved, but only Rohde and Butner were indicted. (Hobbs, 1992).
Ed Gallup, Sr., Mary Lou Gallup and their son, Ed “Chip” Gallup, Jr., who together ran three Gallup Christian Day Care Centers, were accused by over a hundred children of sexual molestation and ritual child abuse. Children described animal killings, pornography, and sexual abuse performed by adults wearing robes.
Ed “Chip” Gallup, Jr. was convicted on three charges of child sexual abuse involving two children. Ed Gallup, Sr., a Nazarene minister, was convicted on the testimony of a 5-year-old girl.
In November, 1989, Mary Lou Gallup’s conviction was reversed because of a discovery violation.**
Ed Gallup, Sr. and Ed “Chip” Gallup, Jr. are serving life terms.
Frances Lucindy Ballard, a teacher’s aide at Georgia Hills Early Childhood Center, was convicted in 1987 on one count of aggravated sexual battery and sentenced to five years in prison.
Nineteen children had initially accused her of sexual assault in June 1984, with allegations including satanic rituals, death threats, and animal sacrifice.
In February 1991, Ballard’s conviction was overturned on grounds that one of several videotapes depicting police interviews with children had been taped over, and thus erased, before it could be viewed by the defense. Her other complaints, including allegations that the children had been brainwashed, were described by the court as “meritless.”** (Newton, 1996)
Frances and Daniel Keller, operators of Fran’s Day Care Center, were convicted in 1992 of aggravated sexual assault of a 3-year-old girl. The Kellers were sentenced to 48 years in prison.
Three children made allegations of abuse that included references to being buried alive with animals, painting pictures with bones dipped in blood, being shot and resurrected, digging up a body in a cemetary and nailing it together, having giant germs implanted in their bodies, and making pornographic movies at gunpoint. (Gamino, 1992).
Two teachers at the YMCA day-care center were convicted of sexually abusing children in El Paso, Texas. Michelle Noble, 34, was convicted in March 1986 on 18 counts of molestation and sentenced to life plus 311 years in prison. Gayle Stickler Dove, 40, was convicted in October 1986, on 6 counts of child abuse and sentenced to three life terms plus 60 years.
Two boys and five girls described abuse that included sexual assault, child pornography, spankings with a plastic tennis racket, and occult-type ritual activities by adults dressed in robes and monster costumes.
Noble’s conviction was overturned in 1987 when an appeals court decided that allowing children to testify on videotape violated the defendant’s right to confront her accusers.** Several witnesses withdrew from the case, and without their testimony, Noble was acquitted at her second trial in April 1988.
Gayle Dove was granted a new trial in March 1987, after her conviction had been set aside on appeal due to an allegation of jury misconduct.** At her second trial, she was convicted on a single count of aggravated battery and sentenced to 20 years. In 1989, her second conviction was overturned on the grounds that three children should have testified in person, rather than on videotape.** In April 1990, prosecutors declined to try her a third time, citing the reluctance of the victims’ parents to put their children through the ordeal of another trial. (Newton, 1996).
Alan B. Hadfield was convicted on seven counts of “sodomizing and sexually molesting” two of his children (Salt Lake Tribune, 1988) in a case in which as many as 40 adults in the community were implicated as perpetrators of satanic ritual abuse (Salt Lake Tribune, 1987). No other charges were filed.
In 1984 two children, ages 7 and 5, were removed from their home due to allegations that they had been sexually abused by their mother and her boyfriend. The children said they were forced to witness the murder of a 12-year-old girl during a cult ritual. The mutilated body of 12-year-old Jessica Hatch was discovered in a remote area of Hanover County. She had disapeared on February 5, 1984, while walking to her grandmother’s house.
Police found candles and occult paraphernalia, but said the children “would freeze up… we couldn’t tell whether they were telling the truth or fantasizing.” (Ross, 1986). The children were ruled incompetent to testify and the sexual abuse charges were dismissed.
Gary Jay Beattie, 28, a convicted “peeping Tom” and friend of the other two suspects, was arrested for making indecent proposals to a 9-year-old girl and two 13-year-old girls. All three girls knew Jessica Hatch and said that Beattie had also propositioned her. Beattie was acquitted of accosting the 9-year-old, but entered a plea bargain on outstanding sex charges involving the 13-year-old victims. His 5-year prison sentence was suspended.
In 1988 Beattie was arrested again on multiple charges of voyeurism. At his first trial in July 1988, he was sentenced to 60 days and a $500 fine. He received a 3-year prison term in the second trial. A third trial in October 1988 resulted in a mistrial because one of the jurors was related to a police officer who investigated the case. A retrial was held in December 1988, and Beattie was convicted on a misdemeanor charge, with a 12-month jail term suspended.
In September 1991, while still on probation, Beattie was arrested on new voyeurism charges.
No one has ever been charged with murdering Jessica Hatch, but local newspapers referred to Beattie as the “closest thing to a suspect.” County authorities cited a “strong possibility” that Jessica Hatch was killed in a satanic ritual. (Times-Dispatch and News Leader, 1988-1991).
Paul R. Ingram, a sheriff’s deputy, confessed in 1988 to sexually abusing two of his daughters in the context of satanic rituals. Ingram pleaded guilty to six counts of third-degree rape and was sentenced to 220 years in prison.
Later, he attempted to withdraw his guilty plea, claiming he had been coerced and had confessed while in a “trance-like state” to crimes he never committed. In September 1992, the Washington State Supreme Court rejected Ingram’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea. (Wright, 1993).
Five adults were convicted and 11 pleaded no contest in a child sex-ring investigation involving 48 child victims.
Selid Holt, 34, was convicted and sentenced to 14 years in prison; Michael Rose, 26, was convicted on 5 counts of child rape and molestation and sentenced to 23 years; Doris Green, 34, who confessed and then recanted her statement, was convicted at trial and sentenced to 23 years; Randall Reed, 43, pleaded guilty on two counts of child molestation and was sentenced to 80 months; Meredith Town, 37, an ex-convict who pleaded no contest on 62 counts of child rape and 4 counts of indecent liberties, was sentenced to 18 years and 4 months; Cherie Town (Meredith Town’s wife), also pleaded nolo contendere and was sentenced to 10 years; Harold and Idella Everett both pleaded guilty to molesting their own children, with Harold sentenced to 23 years and Idella to 4 1/2 years. (Newton, 1996).
Child victims referred to the offenders as “The Circle” and described being sexually assaulted and “swapped” in orgies that allegedly took place at a Pentecostal Church. (Sunde, 1995).
Despite defendants’ criticism of the investigation, a review by the U.S. Justice Department found no evidence that defendants’ civil rights were violated. (Sex Crimes Digest, 1996).
Approximately 50 adults were convicted or pleaded guilty in a child sex ring involving over 100 children.
Children described being abused in a basement by adults wearing masks and sheets. They said they were raped, cut with knives, forced to drink blood, and locked in a “dungeon” with a trap door. (Miller, 1995).
A multi-disciplinary team of social workers, prosecutors and police investigating the case took the code name “Project Jericho” to honor Joshua, a baby witnesses say was killed. (Steed, 1994).
Travis Sterling, 25, was convicted in February, 1994, on eight charges of sexual and physical abuse of children at his parents’ unlicensed day care home. Sterling was sentenced to five years in prison.
Travis Sterling and his parents, Ron and Linda Sterling, were among nine people, including five police officers, arrested on more than 150 child abuse charges. Seven child witnesses testified to abuse that included sexual assault, unlawful confinement and anal intercourse. Weapons, a vibrator and pornographic magazines were found in the Sterling home.
In addition to Travis Sterling, a 22-year-old woman who can not be identified because she was a minor at the time of her offenses, was convicted in 1993 on seven child abuse counts. (Wattie, 1994).
Twenty-five children were removed from an extended family and taken into foster care following disclosures of incest and ritual child abuse. In February, 1989, nine adults were sentenced for up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to 53 charges of incest, cruelty and indecent assault. The children described being abused by adults wearing costumes, being forced to eat excrement and drink blood, and witnessing the killing of animals and babies. (Tate, 1991).
Rene Osterwalder, 38, and his girlfriend, Agostina Schonenberger, 21, were convicted in February 1994 of illegal weapons charges and attempted child abduction. Schonenberger testified that Osterwalder had planned to abduct children, torture them to death in his apartment, and dump their bodies into an aquarium filled with piranhas.
Because the abductions apparently had not been carried out, Osterwalder was sentenced to only 2 years in prison; Schonenberger was sentenced to 6 months. However, they were ordered to serve their sentences in Switzerland, where they face more serious charges of child torture and sexual abuse.
Police found the following evidence in a search of the couple’s residences:
* Six videotapes showing Osterwalder abusing three children ranging in age from 6 months to 12 years old. The children were given electric shocks, held under water and resuscitated, and abused with feces and needles;
* Two tanks of hydrochloric acid in Switzerland and an aquarium with piranhas in Amsterdam. (Osterwalder owned two homes in Amsterdam; one was a former satanic church);
* A fully equipped torture chamber in Switzerland;
* Gynecological equipment, including a culposcope, speculum and extractor;
* Professional video equipment;
* An Uzi rifle with laser visor, hundreds of bullets, two wristweapons and a shooting pen; and
* Luggage with air openings, hand cuffs, and gags.
Osterwalder admitted he was a pedophile but insisted he had no plan to kidnap children. (Jonker, 1993 and Newton, 1996)
Peter Hugh McGregor Ellis, 35, a former day care employee, was convicted June 5, 1993, on 16 counts of sexual abuse relating to seven children. Ellis was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Children who attended Christchurch Civic Creche described bizarre sexual abuse with references to frightening rituals. The children allege they were removed from the day care facility and transported to other locations, including a cemetary and a Masonic lodge, where they were abused by adults dressed in black and white and wearing masks. In addition to their reports of being used for pornographic purposes, the children described being abused within a circle; chanting and participating in mock marriages; being tied up and confined in cages and boxes buried beneath the ground; being penetrated with needles and sticks; witnessing the torture and killing of animals; being drugged; being forced to hurt other children; having blood poured over their heads; and consuming what they believed was human fles
In addition to convictions other evidence has surfaced verifying the existence of ritual abuse of children. Several case examples are given below:
On March 1, 1991, FBI agents arrested three men suspected of running a major child pornography ring. The three men charged were Wayne H. Bailey, 56, of Fairhaven, RI, an audio technician for a Providence, RI television station; Brian K. Schultz, 44, a Barrington, NH man who allegedly reproduced child pornography under the name “New England Video Exchange”; and Mark Colen, 44, from Brooklyn, CT, who headed a company that reproduced and distributed alleged pornographic films.
Law enforcement officials said videotapes recovered in searches of the men’s homes and businesses depicted pregnant women being tortured, children being molested by adults, young women engaged in sexual activities with animals, children urinating on each other and ingesting human feces, and various bizarre sex acts with “satanic” overtones. Some of the children were as young as six years old. (Ford, 1991 and Gaines, 1991).
District of Columbia
A police raid of a home and warehouse connected to the commune known as “The Finders” resulted in the seizure of “several bags of evidence reportedly containing photographs, computer records and other documents.” (Cawley, 1987). A customs agent investigating the case noted that the documents “revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for unspecified purposes.” (Tamarkin, 1994).
The customs agent’s report listed the following evidence:
“One telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong. Other files referred to The Finders activities and members in foreign countries. And there was a large amount of data collected on various childcare organizations.”
“In one area of the warehouse, according to the investigator’s report, there appeared to be an altar. Jars of urine and feces were located nearby. The search warrants also turned up nude photos of children with their genital areas accented and ‘on display.’ An album cotained a series of photos of adults and children dressed in white sheets and participating in the execution, disembowelment, skinning and dismemberment of goats. One photo showed the testes of a male goat being removed. Another showed a crying child looking at a decapitated goat. In fact, the goat’s head and goat skins were removed by Virginia state police during a search of a farm belonging to The Finders group.” (Tamarkin, 1994).
Despite the urgings of the customs agent and several U.S. Representatives, The Finders case was dropped “like a hot rock.” (Wilkin, 1993).
Authorities are investigating a possible link between Belgium’s child sex and murder scandal and a self-styled Satanic Order of Abrasax. Police seized 500 video cassettes believed to show hard-core child pornography, computer discs, two human skulls and jars of animal blood. (Sunday Express, 1997 and Sunday Times, 1996)
Police in Finland discovered a “massive computer library of child pornography that included pictures of torture, mutilation, and cannibalism.” The owner of the child pornography was not arrested because distributing hard-core child pornography is a minor offense in Finland. (World, 1996.)

* Because ritual abuse allegations often are not disclosed in courtroom proceedings, this list represents only a portion of convictions where ritual child abuse is a factor.
** A conviction is overturned on appeal when the appellate court finds that the defendant was denied a fair trial due to a legal error. Granting an appeal for a new trial does not constitute a ruling that the crime for which the defendant was originally tried could not have been committed.
Why is it that this entomologist has become such a superstar of science, received so many accolades and awards, and wielded such influence over the public conversation on population despite being so remarkably, consistently, staggeringly wrong about the issues he presumes to lecture the public on?

Recap of Alfie’s Short Life Casts Serious Doubt on the National Heath Service of the UK; Leaves a Grieving World
By David William Jedell, May 3, 2018
Alfie was born healthy and on time. We were so happy to have him with us going home, our beautiful boy. He grew and fed well, but was exceptionally sleepy and didn’t meet milestones. After a couple of weeks we noticed Alfie wasn’t doing things he should be, like lifting his head up, grabbing his dummy, eating his hands, etc. We also noticed he was doing a jerking movement with his hands, arms and legs, and his eyes would roll up. Alfie often had his hands clenched into a fist. We took him to doctors three times, who said he was lazy and a late developer.
Months went by and Alfie went backward instead of forwards. He started making more jerking movements and wasn’t himself at all. Finally Alfie became agitated, crying inconsolably. Then Alfie got a chest infection and landed in the hospital. The infection led him to have a myoclonic jerking spasm, and Alfie struggled to breathe. This is when he was first put on life support, the worst nights of our lives. They told us in January 2016 that Alfie wasn’t going to make it, so we had him christened. We thought we were going to lose our son and our hearts were desperate.
But Alfie had other ideas, he managed to beat the infection and start breathing on his own again. He was moving and trying to open his eyes. Unfortunately, Alfie caught another infection and went back on the ventilator.
Time and time again, despite not being diagnosed or treated for any suspected underlying disease, his seizures being somewhat controlled by a heavy cocktail of sedating drugs, Alfie has come back over and over from every infection and challenge. The hospital claims that Alfie is “insensate” and unaware of any stimulus or irritation, which is proven wrong in hundreds of videos, against the odds of a heavy cocktail of anti-seizure drugs with sedative effect. Daily, Alfie moves, stretches, yawns, responding to tickling and noise and cuddling.
And yet even with all this, with loving parents (we are only 20 years old) who persevere through great strain and leave no stone unturned for Alfie, with support around the world, Alder Hey wants to turn his life support off. We have found another European hospital willing to help Alfie move forward, get a tracheostomy and PEG tube and get off heavy sedation, and to try to diagnose and treat him. We’ve been told several times by outside doctors that Alfie can even eventually be able to go home with a tracheostomy and direct stomach tube (PEG).
Yet Alder Hey keeps moving the goalposts. They have gone from telling us they would allow transfer if a hospital was found, and putting us through a long process of proving our option was viable, to admitting they would not allow any such transfer. The pressure by the doctors to end Alfie’s life has been unrelenting. Now they have resorted to legal force, to remove parental rights and end Alfie’s life, going to court behind our backs when we were still willing to go through mediation to find a positive solution.

In full: Alfie Evans’ father pleads to allow his sick son to be taken to Italy | ITV News
Death Sentence by Alder Hey Hospital and The Supreme Court of the UK
Life support was withdrawn, Alfie Evans’ father said his son was still supporting his own life more than an hour after treatment was stopped, but that he was in need of oxygen. Earlier in the evening, Mr Justice Hayden said doctors at Alder Hey children’s hospital in Liverpool could stop providing life support.
Bambino Gesu’s boss has said it is ready and fully prepared to take Alfie from the UK for further treatment in Rome.The hospital has arranged the logistical aspects with the Italian embassy and Palazzo Chigi, the official residence of Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
“The Italian Embassy in England is also looking for an ambulance to take the boy from the hospital to the airport.
But that evening Mr Justice Hayden dismissed their eleventh-hour bid and gave doctors at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Italy the go-ahead to turn off Alfie’s life support.
Prominent Pediatrician Says Alfie Not Dying and Should Be Released
As the parents of Alfie Evans await a meeting today with hospital staff to find out if they would be able to bring him home, a prominent doctor who has studied Alfie says he is not dying and is not brain-dead and says the hospital needs to quit holding him as if he were in a prison.
Alfie supposedly has a degenerative neurological condition but that diagnosis is being challenged now that Alfie is breathing on his own without life support.
Alfie Evans’ parents met with staff from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to request permission to take Alfie home. His father Tom Evans says he would not try to take Alfie to Italy if allowed to bring Alfie home, but that he would have doctors and support staff help Alfie from their home. Alfie has survived for a third day after hospital doctors removed his life support without their permission.
Dr Izabela Pałgan, a paediatrician and children’s oncologist from Bydgoszcz in Poland, claims to have diagnosed the 23-month-old toddler on his parent’s request.
She said: “The doctors at the hospital in Liverpool have approached the High Court for permission to unplug the child from his life support machinery, claiming it will be in his best interests.
“But the child is not a dying child. On the Paediatric Glasgow Coma Scale the child ranks at about eight to nine points, so this is not a case of brain death.“The child reacts to his father’s voice and periodically opens his eyes. Periodically the boy also clenches his mouth when given a dummy, therefore he shows reactions.“The parents have absolutely stated the child communicates with them when they speak to him – they feel the child somehow feels their emotions and can emotionally connect with them.“Certainly this is not a dying child. In Poland and I think in other European countries as well, children like this are simply taken care of with palliative care or home care.”According to Dr Pałgan, the expert was called in to review Alfie’s case after family supporters sought out medical experts who could give a second opinion on Alfie’s conditions.
Alfie’s father Tom Evans agrees his son has been misdiagnosed. Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, Alfie’s father Tom said: “For the third day now, there’s been not one single problem with him. The nurses come in and said ‘wow.’”
“Today, we’re going to have a meeting with the doctors at Alder Hey and we’ll now start asking to go home. Alfie doesn’t need intensive care anymore.”
In the new interview, Evans said, “Alfie does not need intensive care – Alfie is lying on the bed with one litre of oxygen going to his lungs and the rest is him. Some people say it’s a miracle – it’s not a miracle its a misdiagnosis.”
The decision denying travel to Italy came despite doctors representing Alder Hey Children’s Hospital misleading the court with claims it never said Alfie would die soon after it removed his life support without his parents’ permission. And officials at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital kicked out two paramedics from the air ambulance and made them leave the premises after they were talking with Alfie’s parents. This is the latest example of the hospital’s lack of care and concern for the 23-month old boy who is dealing with a rare neurological condition.
Evans indicated that Alfie is not in any pain and hardly taking any drugs — and he disputed the claim that Alfie should not be able to travel to Italy because of potential seizures, saying that Alfie has not having any seizures and is not on any anti-seizure medication because there was no problem at this time.
Previously, Evans indicated he was very concerned about Alfie’s lack of food — saying then that it has been almost 24 hours since he has had anything to eat and he is just receiving water and fluids. He was worried that hospital staff are attempting to starve Alfie to death in an attempt to prove their contention that Alfie was going to die very quickly after his removal from life support. Eventually, Alfie received food.
After a decision by Italy, Alfie was granted Italian citizenship which qualified him for being able to leave the country, but courts ruled otherwise.
A British doctors group, The Medical Ethics Alliance, expressed its horror over the treatment of Alfie Evans that it called a “medical tyranny.”
And Italy’s Healthcare Chief has slammed the decisions by UK courts to treat Alfie the way that they have. The President of the Italian National Institute of Health lambasted the UK High Court’s decision yesterday on Alfie Evans’ that resulted it the children’s hospital being allowed to remove life support over Alfie’s parents’ objections.
Pope Francis has repeatedly spoken on Alfie’s behalf and urged that Alfie’s parents be allowed to bring him to Italy.
Alfie Evans Died April 28, 2018
Whistleblower Against Alder Hey Hospital
Dr. Edwin Jesudason, an associate professor and award-winning paediatric surgeon, the authorities turned a blind eye after he and a colleague called for a review of ‘unnecessary’ fatalities among children who had undergone surgery at the hospital.
He not only claims that Alder Hey tried to stop him making his concerns public, but also now fears he has been blacklisted as a troublemaking whistleblower — and that he will never work again for the NHS.
The Liverpool Care Pathway in 2012
Norman Lamb, the care minister, asked officials at the Department of Health to look into how and why financial rewards are being linked to targets for the use of the Liverpool Care Pathway.
A nurse gave Alfie Evans four unidentified drugs just two hours before his death
To silence the press, the hospital promised Tom Evans more oxygen and more vital support. Two hours before dying the oxygen saturation was about 98 and Alfie’s beats were about 160, so much so that Thomas was convinced that they would let him go home soon (as the hospital administration told him on Friday afternoon) . Before dying, while Tom had gone out for a moment, leaving Kate half-awake and another family member in the room, a nurse entered and explained that he would give the baby four drugs (no one knows what) to treat him.After about 30 minutes the saturation dropped to 15. Two hours later Alfie was dead. The scientific director of the Bambin Gesù Hospital, Bruno Dalla Dallapiccola, is quoted as saying he thinks the lack of food and water during the first day after Alfie’s life support was removed contributed to his death as well as the lack of proper oxygen. A report also indicates that Alfie immediately contracted “a lung infection” after life support was removed and that Alfie’s father requested but was denied antibiotics to combat that. It also alleges that the breathing tubes were yanked in a way that caused damage or stress to Alfie’s body.After removing his life support without permission, officials at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital waited 28 hours before finally feeding the 23-month old boy.
British prime minister Theresa May defended the hospital. She argued that medical experts ought to be the ones to make decisions in such cases as opposed to parents and family.
A member of the European Parliament wants the case of Alfie Evans to be the last in which parents’ wishes for their child’s medical care are smacked down by the state.“Alfie’s Law,” introduced by Steven Woolfe, a member of the European Union’s legislative body for North West England, would provide parents of children with terminal diseases more say in their child’s care and treatment instead of leaving those decisions up to hospitals and courts.
Pope Francis, who had publicly supported Evans and James’ campaign, wrote a condolence that was posted on Twitter Saturday. “I am deeply moved by the death of little Alfie,” Francis said. “Today I pray especially for his parents, as God the Father receives him in his tender embrace.”
Sixteen Democratic U.S. Senators Are Questioned on Socialized Healthcare After Alfie Evans and Go Completely Silent
The evils of socialized medicine were on full display during the few days the world watched Alfie Evans suffer to death at the hands of the British government’s National Healthcare System (NHS). After his death, the Daily Signal decided to get the comments of the 15 Democratic senators currently co-sponsoring the “Medicare for All Act of 2017,” spearheaded by
Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). According to the Daily Signal, what they got in return was an eerie silence from the Democrats who apparently decided to go dark after the world watched their beloved system of choice fail so spectacularly.
The Daily Signal emailed the Senate offices of Sanders and co-sponsors Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California, Martin Heinrich of New Mexico, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Edward Markey of Massachusetts, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.In emails sent to the 16 senators Monday and Tuesday, The Daily Signal noted that they have advocated government-run health care and asked what they thought of the Alfie Evans case and how a similar case should be handled in the United States. None had responded as of publication deadline Tuesday evening.

THIS CITIZEN INTELLIGENCE REPORT IS PREPARED BY THE ANONYMOUS PATRIOTS OF THE AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE MEDIA AND AMERICANS FOR INNOVATION. PLEASE CHECK THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FROM TIME TO TIME AS WE WILL BE POSTING UPDATES TO OUR FINDINGS.
Just when you thought Bob Mueller’s conflicts of interest, continuous illegal leaks, bogus indictments, overtly Democratic team, politicized over-reach, compromised team members, corrupt lawyers, blindness to the real election meddling, legal chicanery, entrapment of witnesses, nothing-burger results, and his own collusion with James Comey, the Anonymous Patriots uncover his own personal cover-up that has been going on for years.
As many of us are calling members of Congress to “Shut It Down”, Mueller slowly limps along gathering pathetic bits of useless “evidence” while he finishes his mission to cover up any wrong-doings by Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Ohr, Zebley, Rosenstein, Obama, Clinton, Lynch, Jarret, Rice, and the other criminals who treasonously conducted a political war against Team Trump utilizing the entire US intelligence community and tax-payer money to attempt to enthrone Hillary Clinton.
For those of you who are new to our citizen intelligence blog, please see the list of intelligence reports at the bottom of this article that support the information and claims in this report.
The public vote is in, and Mueller’s cover-up is proclaimed an overt fraud and is completely compromised. Bob Mueller doesn’t even notice, and the FBI and DOJ demonstrate their complicit support for this Deep State political coup – what George Soros calls a “color revolution”, which is often timed around an election that is contested.
That’s right, Mueller is doing the bidding of Soros who is still wringing his hands that all his plans and billions in donations did not buy Hillary’s coronation.
WHAT IS MUELLER REALLY UP TO?
The Anonymous Patriots have uncovered information that adds pieces to the puzzle of what we think Mueller is also hiding. We must give Mueller credit for being the best DC Fixer in history. After all, he successfully covered up any truth about 911. Mueller didn’t seem to notice Tower 7 falling into its footprint at free-fall speed, that only could have been done by a controlled demolition, even though no plane hit that tower.
So, since he apparently doesn’t think a free fall building on 911 is important, we thought we would bring these items to his immediate and direct attention so that they are not missed as he continues his charade as “special council above-reproach”.
Mueller is the enforcer of the U. S. Patriot Act, which effectively abnegated the U. S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Mueller was on the board of HSBC, one of the most corrupt banks in the world.
Mueller is the new U. S. corporate police chief who works for transnational interests like the well-known corrupt law firm WilmerHale, where seven of his bull-dog special council legal team also worked. We now discover that his right-hand man Aaron Zebley, currently working with Mueller on the special council, was also his former FBI Chief of Staff until he joined WilmerHale in 2014. This is the same Aaron Zebley who was private counsel to Justin Cooper, the man who actually set up and managed the secret, bathroom server inside Hillary Clinton’s residence.
BUT WHAT WAS MOST SHOCKING TO US WAS THE FACT THAT MUELLER IS ALREADY WORKING WITH, AND HAS BEEN FOR DECADES, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S PERSONAL PICK TO BE PRESIDENT IN 2020.
This corrupt lawyer, Deval Patrick, worked with Mueller decades ago and we present the evidence to show that Mueller covered up his own legal history to hide this fact.
Mueller already knows that the Deep State old guard hold-overs, and their financiers Soros, Blavatnik, Browder, and the Silicon Valley Boy Kings have already “tapped” their next president/king.
Deval Patrick will follow in the footsteps of Obama and be a perfect cardboard cut-out who will be protected fiercely by FBI/DOJ/CIA fixers like Mueller the Don, Comey the junk-yard dog, McCabe the conniving, Rosenstein the heir apparent, Andrew Weissman the trickster, Sally Yates the traitor, Preet Bharara the wanna-be, Loretta Lynch the mob boss, Valerie Jarrett the Muslim Brotherhood handler, and the rest of the gang. And we do mean GANG.
PETER STRZOK THE SCAPEGOAT
Peter Strzok was always James Comey’s planned scapegoat because he works in “FBI counter-intelligence”, which trumps the normal FBI. Comey dodged all questions about his “investigation” of Trump because of Strzok has “Top Secret/National Security” status for all that he did for Comey in meddling in the election. This security status makes a Congressional investigation difficult, making it is easy for the criminals to obfuscate what they are really doing, unless the investigators know exactly what they are looking for and ask exactly the right questions.
We put together this report so that investigators and average citizens would “ask the right questions.”
Strzok conducted many of Comey’s “October Surprises” that were supposed to take Trump out of the election altogether: Fake Dossier, Trump Tower server, DNC fake hacking accusations, the first Russian Meddling Investigation, the second counter-intelligence Russian collusion investigation, the Flynn interrogation, the Manafort accusations, the Carter Page accusations, the Michael Cohen accusations, the Hillary/Huma/Mills/Weiner interviews, Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian lawyer, the continuous FBI leaks, the Mueller special investigation, etc., etc., etc.
Strzok is the bottleneck for many of Comey’s crimes that clearly demonstrate FBI conflict of interest, corruption, collusion, and apparently, a Soros-style “regime change.”
As the Anonymous Patriots dug deeper into research on corrupt FBI players, we began to uncover a most interesting secret that Mueller may be trying to keep from We the People.
It appears that he is not only trying to de-legitimize the Trump presidency, but he is also grooming a candidate for 2020, and in trying to distance himself from his close relationship to this man, may have destroyed court records. This was easy enough for us to find, so imagine what a real team of DOJ – FBI investigators could uncover.
Surely, our 17 intelligence agencies know this information and have already given their report to the President.
Essentially, Mueller, Obama, Clinton and the gang have already named and prepared the next “Chosen One” to sit on the throne of the White House. Mueller and Comey have been part of this plan for decades. That is why they both have staked everything on this attempted coup d’état against a duly elected president.
Deval Patrick’s personal legal history and collusion with Mueller had to be hidden so that, like Obama, his history is squeaky clean and well covered-up by those who control the DC swamp with “fixers” in the FBI and DOJ. This is just another Mueller cover-up for the planned control of the DC swamp.

What is going on at the FBI
Beware of Corrupt Patent Attorneys
Tech Warlords Rigged US Elections

The CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control) annual Orwellian “flu season” brainwashing fest is about to begin. Flu fear mongering and alarming flu statistics will soon be bombarding the air waves, a massive Big Pharma media marketing blitz masquerading as science with one purpose: to drive the American people to unthinkingly roll up their sleeves and get the toxic flu jab.
The media in conjunction with the CDC will ratchet up the public’s fear with almost daily worst case-scenario flu outbreak advisories while simultaneously pushing the solution: Big Pharma’s unproven flu vaccine.
Is there really such a thing as a Flu season? Spring, summer, fall and winter; these are real seasons. There are no other seasons. The flu season is a ruse. It’s a marketing ploy that was invented by “Madison Avenue” to sell vaccines.
But what about those nasty invisible germs that are conspiring at the same time each year to target and infect you? Those super flu bugs that travel halfway around the world and miraculously manage to kill the same number of people in the USA year after year?
A Closer Look at the ‘Flu Season’
To ensure maximum vaccination compliance, official statistical pronouncements like the etched in stone 36,000 annual deaths from the flu will be trotted out again and again. The subtext is clear: You could die from the flu; after all 36,000 hapless people die every year and you could be one of them. Not to fret though, we have the answer; we can save you, but only if you get your flu shot ASAP.
Here’s a little secret the CDC does not want you to know. The 36,000 annual deaths from flu figure is manufactured; a total myth; a lie. The CDC created this annual bogus death toll by surreptitiously lumping both flu and pneumonia deaths into one tidy category. Their logic was based on the convenient assumption that pneumonia deaths stem from complications of the flu. That assumption is absurd. Pneumonia has a number of documented causes.
A 2005, report published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ online) by Peter Doshi, PhD, blew the lid off the CDC’s claim that 36,000 died from the flu annually. After careful analysis Doshi revealed, “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).”
He arrived at the figures by separating out so called flu deaths from pneumonia deaths. So called flu deaths because an analysis of the 2001 flu and pneumonia deaths data showed only 18 people actually died from the flu. Only 18 were confirmed to had have a flu virus. 
The Annual Flu Shot is a Big Pharma Money Making Racket
“There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine, thus far developed, is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway.” – FDA former Chief Vaccine Control Officer Dr. J. Anthony Morris.
Dr. Anthony made this candid pronouncement during the infamous fake 1976 “swine flu” epidemic scare. That’s when the authorities relentlessly urged fearful and compliant Americans into getting a swine flu vaccine, as they claimed it was the only way Americans could protect themselves from this deadly flu bug. The result of the 1976 vaccination campaign was tragic to say the least.
“The pharmaceutical industry convinced President Gerald Ford to give them legal immunity from the Swine Flu vaccine which was rushed to market in 1976, and to lead the PR campaign to convince Americans to get the vaccine. More people died from the vaccine than from the flu.”
Millions of terrified Americans believed the hype and rolled up their sleeves. The result was that more than 500 people developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), a severe paralytic disease after the shot and at least 300 people died from vaccine injuries. 
There were over 4,000 reported adverse events from the vaccines, which forced the campaign to shut down within a year. Of course these are only reported adverse effects from the vaccine, we will never know the full extent of vaccine injuries. Worse yet, the flu epidemic was a dud; it never materialized. But that was then. Surely things have changed for the better regarding Flu vaccines. Not really.
For example, in 2009 Desiree Jennings, a Washington Redskins cheerleader suffered a paralyzing nerve disorder called dystonia 10 days after receiving a seasonal flu shot at a local drug store. To add insult to injury a concerted effort was made to discredit her story. 
News clip of Desiree’s healing process with holistic MD Dr. Bashard:
Powerful Profile of a Another Flu Vaccine Victim:
The Vaccine Injury Law Project is a team of lawyers who specialize in flu vaccine injuries. They state on their website: Both the swine flu (H1N1) vaccine and the more traditional flu shot have been associated with causing the following serious, long term adverse effects: 
* Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS)
* Severe allergic reaction
* Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
* Brachial neuritis
* Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
“According to the Department of Justice, the flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in the U. S. based on settled cases for vaccine injuries.”
The last report issued in 2013 by the Department of Justice (Vaccine Court), for compensation made by the Health and Human Services for people injured or killed by vaccines, was released in December 2013, covering the period of 8/16/2013 through 11/15/2013.
There were 139 claims settled during this time period, with 70 of them being compensated. So, just over 50% of the claims filed for vaccine damages were compensated during this period.
Once again, the greatest percentage of damages compensated were for the influenza vaccine, and most of those were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
Yet these facts, tucked away in a file on the Department of Health and Human Services website, are never reported in the mainstream media. So we will report them here. Of the 70 cases compensated, 42 of them were for the flu vaccine, or 60% of the cases settled where compensation was awarded for injury or death due to the vaccine. 
Why do drug companies push the flu vaccine? “It’s all about money,” says Dr. Russell Blaylock, retired neurosurgeon and author of several books. “Vaccines are a pharmaceutical company’s dream. They have a product that both the government and the media will help them sell, and since vaccines are protected, they can’t be sued if anyone has a complication.”  Have you ever looked at what is actually in a flu vaccine? Peruse the CDC’s vaccine ingredients list HERE. Follow this link to learn more: 11 Reasons Why Flu Shots Are More Dangerous Than The Flu Itself
Flu Vaccine Exposed: Think Twice!
It’s not that there’s a ‘flu season’ per se; more realistically, it’s that there are lots of people with weakened immune systems from a variety of reasons and weak immune systems have a difficult time making the transition from a warm season to a cool season. Moreover, less time spent outdoors and less exposure to sunshine can lead to a decrease in vitamin D production.
Each year more studies are solidifying the link between low vitamin D levels and the onslaught of colds, influenza and other respiratory tract infections. In fact, Vitamin D blood levels are at their lowest point during the so-called flu season. Vitamin D is effective as a flu preventive. Some also claim it works well as a treatment option. 
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) has a different take on the “flu season” and the reasons why many people succumb to colds, flu, and other respiratory problems at that time. It has to do with the change of seasons and the status of ones immune system.
According to TCM: “It takes energy to shift from one season to the next and if the body’s immune system is already slightly weakened, a cold, virus or allergy has a better chance to take hold.” 
Instead of toxifying your body with a dangerous and unproven vaccine, why not support and strengthen your immune system and “inner terrain.” A quote from Dr. Robert Young’s book Sick and Tired? explains succinctly what really causes disease.
“If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat—diseased tissue— rather than being the cause of the diseased tissue; e.g., mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant.” – Rudolph Virchow (Father of Pathology)
In his book Quantum Healing, Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD, shares a study where the influenza virus was isolated and implanted directly onto the mucous membranes of a group of subjects, and only 12% of them got the flu. The study clearly demonstrated that a strong immune system and the inner terrain is the key to health and prevention of disease. 
Start by avoiding processed foods and eat a mostly organic, whole food, plant based diet that’s nutrient rich. Maintain a healthy gut; 80% of immunity is in the digestive tract 
Be sure to include food based probiotics as part of your daily routine preferably a DIY kefir beverage. Many people find they need to boost their digestive fire in the fall and winter months. Swedish bitters, digestive enzymes, or sipping on warm ginger tea during a meal can be helpful.
Optimize vitamin D levels, supplement daily with adequate levels of vitamin C, eat food rich in zinc like: pumpkin seeds, spinach, oysters, nuts, and beans. Get sufficient rest. Stay hydrated. Minimize stress and be sure to incorporate some form of exercise into your daily routine.

Age of Autism links to Alliance for Human Resesearch Protection for Vera Sharav’s damning indictment of the British Medical Journal’s intervention in the Wakefield affair. She traces its history from the beginning but focuses on the journal’s allegations of fraud in 2011 and its sinister repercussions.
Introduction: I have undertaken this review of the case against Dr. Andrew Wakefield because the issues involved are far more consequential than the vilification of one doctor. The issues, as I see them, involve (a) collusion of public health officials to deceive the public by concealing scientific evidence that confirms empirical evidence of serious harm linked to vaccines – in particular polyvalent vaccines; (b) the “willful blindness” by the medical community as it uncritically fell in line with a government dictated vaccination policy driven by corporate business interests.
Public health officials and the medical profession have abrogated their professional, public, and human responsibility, by failing to honestly examine the iatrogenic harm caused by expansive, indiscriminate, and increasingly aggressive vaccination policies. On a human level, the documented evidence shows a callous disregard for the plight of thousands of children who suffer irreversible harm, as if they were unavoidable “collateral damage”.
All of the documented evidence and testimonies submitted to the General Medical Council, upon which GMC issued its guilty verdicts against Dr. Wakefield and his two co-defendants in 2010, were subsequently forensically assessed by the UK High Court in March 2012, in the appeal of Professor John Walker-Smith, the senior clinician and senior author of the Lancet case series. The High Court determined that the verdicts of professional misconduct and ethics violations were unsupported by the evidence.
Indeed, the adjudicated evidence refutes the case against Dr. Wakefield; the documents and testimonies demonstrate that there is no evidence whatsoever, to support the charges of professional misconduct, much less the accusation of fraud. The accusation of fraud was hurled by the Editor-in-Chief of the BMJ, a medical journal whose corporate ownership is intertwined with the vaccine manufacturing Behemoths, Merck – with whom BMJ signed a partnership agreement in 2008 – and GlaxoSmithKline which provides additional financial support to BMJ. Among their numerous vaccine products, Merck and GSK manufacture the MMR vaccine.
My commentary is buttressed with details from the High Court decision (2012); transcripts of testimony before the General Medical Council (2007- 2010); documents and testimony that have been judicially adjudicated; the sworn deposition of the Deputy Editor of the BMJ with internal BMJ emails(2012); internal correspondence by CDC officials and CDC-commissioned scientists (2000-2009, some uncovered in 2011; new documents obtained in July 2017); the suppressed finding of CDC’s first large-scale epidemiological study (1999) and a transcript of the closed door meeting of the Epidemic Intelligence Service at Simpsonwood (2000); a transcript of the closed meeting of the US Institute of Medicine Committee on Immunization Safety Review (2001); the U.S. Grand Jury criminal indictment of Dr. Poul Thorsen (2011); transcripts of the UK Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (1988); a confidential report Re: Infanrix hexa submitted by GlaxoSmithKline to the European Medicines Agency (2012) documenting sudden infant deaths; Cochrane Collaboration MMR reviews (2003, 2005, 2012); HHS Inspector General investigation report – CDC advisory panel corruption (2009); CDC scientists letter of complaint about “rogue interests” “questionable and unethical practices” (2016)… Read more at AHRP.org here
Pedophile Priest Who Was Forgiven by Church for Raping 26 Children, Found Dead Body found stabbed and tortured after admitting to multiple child rape
By: Jay Greenberg |@NeonNettle on 7th November 2017 ©
The body of Father Archambault was found in his home after he was forgiven for child rape The body of a pedophile priest, who was forgiven by the Catholic Church after he admitted to raping 26 children, was found in his Massachusetts home after being stabbed to death.
His body was found bound and gagged by his brother after he missed a scheduled Mass at a church, according to police records.
Police believe he had been tortured before he died by “more than one assailant”, who had stabbed him several times in the chest and also “removed” his genitals.
He is believed to have died of his injuries after a “very large blade” – most likely a machete – was inserted into his rectum in its entirety, fatally damaging several of his internal organs.
Father Archambault was accused of abusing 29 children on multiple occasions with victims ranging from 5 to 11-years-old.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield received a number of complaints against the priest prompting an investigation by the Vatican under Canon law.
Of the 29 complaints, the church only investigated 26 of them after deciding there wasn’t enough evidence to pursue 3 of the claims.
Due to the Catholic Church’s internal investigation protocols, the case was tried under Canon law which operates outside of the boundaries of the regular law.
The Vatican decided this was a church matter, telling families there was “no need for the police.”Father Archambault admitted to the remaining charges from 26 victims but claimed that he didn’t rape them as “they all consented to it.
“Despite the youngest child being just 5-years-old, the Cannon court accepted that the children consented to sex with the 42-year-old priest and ruled that he didn’t rape them.
Although he wasn’t charged with child abuse, the judge declared that having sex with all those children was a “grave sin” and “must not go unpunished.”As “punishment” for his crimes, the priest was forced to take paid leave and was sent to a retreat in Alabama for a month to seek forgiveness through “prayer and penance.”
He was killed shortly after returning from the retreat.
Families of the victims were outraged by the church’s handling of the case and tried to launch an appeal by writing a joint letter to the Pope in the hope the case could be turned over to law enforcement.
They didn’t receive a reply from Pope Francis, but did get a letter back from the church telling them that the “case is now closed.”
A police spokesperson said they are “following leads” in the case of Archambault’s death and believe the killing may be the work of vigilantes responding to the child abuse claims.
A statement released by the diocese said the Catholic Church expects the “full force of the law to be used” in bringing the priest’s killers to justice.
