“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all-male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons will become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.”

Turkey’s Foreign Military Bases and Their Threat to Stability

Rather than view with alarm Turkey’s announcement that it is building at least three military bases abroad, the United States and NATO have welcomed Ankara’s move as a contribution to stability. Nothing could be further from the truth. Turkey’s duplicitous fingerprints are all over support for terrorist groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Jabhat al-Nusra, and Al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Tunisia.

The plans by the Adolf Hitler-praising Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to build military bases in Qatar, Somalia, the Republic of Georgia, and Azerbaijan are in keeping with Turkey’s more aggressive and neo-Ottoman foreign and military policies. Turkey is also building its first aircraft carrier that will extend Turkey’s naval presence into the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.


      The announcement that Turkey is building a base in the Republic of Georgia comes after the Turks announced plans for a military base in Qatar, where 3000 Turkish Continue reading →

Evidence of Organized Pedophilia and Child-Trafficking Implicates Governments, Media, Churches and Charities

Organized Pedophilia and Child-Trafficking Implicates Governments, Media, Churches and CharitiesEditor’s note, January 2016: With the fate of the children at the centre of the Hampstead child abuse case to be decided in the coming days, it is important to reflect on the evidence. In this July 2015 article, researcher Sonya van Gelder explores the extent of organised pedophilia and child-trafficking networks, in the UK and worldwide, involving top-level government, church and charitable institutions…

By Sonya Van Gelder

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

In an earlier article, Suppressed Pedophilia Allegations Reveal Culture of Satanic Ritual Abuse, I discussed the story of the Hampstead child-abuse whistleblowers, 9 year old Hampstead girl Alisa and her 8 year old brother Gabriel, whose testimony of alleged abuse at the hands of their father, Ricky Dearman, and a satanic cult had just been leaked into alternative media. The alleged abuses involve a network of pedophiles in positions of public trust, including school teachers (from 8 different schools), priests, social workers, health care workers, child protection agencies and police officers, and medical examination of the children revealed physical trauma consistent with long-term sexual abuse.

However, adding to the complexity of this situation, the more evidence that comes to light surrounding the modus operandi of child molestation and trafficking networks, the more it appears that those people at the top of our society’s most influential social and legal are actively working to protect organized pedophilia and child-trafficking networks, rather than to dismantle them and bring the perpetrators to justice. So while Ricky Dearman has since been cleared of wrong-doing by the High Court in the UK, unanswered questions remain as to whether justice has indeed been served in this case.

The Hampstead Case

Following the initial allegations, the children were examined by a Police Medical Officer. Medical reports cited physical injuries consistent with blunt force trauma that correlated with allegations of physical and sexual abuse. The children gave names and also provided details of perpetrators’ anatomies, characteristics and birth marks etc. However the UK legal establishment failed to begin formal investigations into these allegations, instead appearing to close ranks around the individuals and institutions implicated. Only after the children’s recorded confessions were made public did authorities pursue legal action — against the children’s mother, Ella Draper.

Showing little sensitivity to the nature of these allegations, the children were taken from Draper’s custody by UK authorities and entrusted to a network of social workers, health care workers, child protection agencies and police — part of the same institutional networks that the children alleged to have been involved in facilitating their abuse.

According to Ms. Draper, the children were later asked by Police to retract their statements in police interviews conducted after the children had already spent 6 days in two separate foster care accommodations. Notably, the children’s initial statements correlated with each other while also being extremely detailed, however their later retractions (issued after almost a week in institutional placement) were entirely dissimilar.

Perceiving there to be holes in the official narrative of this case, many citizens and activists around the world have been mobilized and, since February, much more research has been done by those whose priority is to defend the rights of these children — and indeed, children everywhere — from the potential of systemic, self-protecting abuse networks. Their efforts have helped to create a bigger-picture understanding of this complex situation, lifting the veil on the organized and institutionalized molestation, abduction, trafficking, sale, rape, torture and murder of children involving governments, media, churches and charities.

With unanswered questions mounting, activists working to uncover the truth of this situation have become increasingly disconcerted by the apparent inaction of high-level authorities in this and countless other matters of child abuse. Volumes of recent and historical evidence indicates that global pedophilia and child-trafficking networks are not only operating within the ranks of our society’s most influential governing bodies and institutions, but are also being protected from legal recourse by those same institutions. Implicated by this evidence are countless well-known politicians and officials, educators, entertainers, media heads, and public and religious figures, many of whom are claimed to enjoy the calculated protections of conspirators within the political, media, religious and justice systems — the systems that are meant to protect our children’s interests, not their abusers.

Let’s examine the evidence.

Pedophiles in Politics

Allegations of pedophilia and satanic ritual abuse, child stealing and child trafficking are dangerously common amongst the highest ranking members of our society. The recurrence and consistence of allegations involving the powerful elite at the highest levels, coupled with the demonstrably routine suppression of evidence relating to those allegations, raises some difficult yet critical questions. Have the institutions we trust to serve the public’s best interests (including government, technology and media giants) in fact become corrupted, systemically serving more sinister, undisclosed ends?

As you’ll see in the short video below, British MP John Mann delivered a passionate speech to the British Parliament on 23th May 2015, outlining just how extensively pedophilia, child abuse and slavery networks are within the British Government.

There are already over 1,400 suspects involved in just one alleged British pedophile ring alone, with many more cases coming to light in Australia following recent investigations of the Royal Commission Into Child Abuse into the activity of the nation’s institutional bodies.

According to Mann:

“My constituency is no worse, no different to anywhere else in the country. This is nationwide, it’s every aspect of society… I’m expecting other people with other names coming forward from other parts of the country in the near future, others have already done so.

“The scandal of historic child abuse in this country is going to be one of the defining issues of the next five years… It is going to corrode everything over this Parliament because it is so large, it is so huge, it involves so many people… and this Parliament is going to have to deal with it.”

Getting Up to Speed…

The following broadcast from the The Kev Baker Show on Truth Frequency Radio features a 2 hour interview with researcher, author and broadcaster Chris Everard who presents a detailed and up-to-date report of the situation in the UK. If you don’t have the time to view all the links connected to this article, this one is the one to watch.

The Grim Reality of Institutionalized Abuse

As shocking as the notion of pedophilia is, the information that actually reaches mainstream media and therefore the common perception of what pedophilia actually is – what it involves, and who – barely scratches the surface of the reality.

Our society is controlled by a Satanic ruling class. They are criminals, hiding behind the ‘respectable’ upper hierarchies of our society. It is difficult to believe such atrocities are occurring in the ‘civilized’ West in the 21st Century, but the evidence has become so overwhelming that we can no longer claim ignorance. We (myself included) have no choice but to put our fears aside and find the courage to seriously examine this cesspit of humanity, and to act on what we find. Ongoing investigations are uncovering unimaginable atrocities and, heart-broken, many of us would rather not pursue the truth any further. It can seem like too much to bear, so we would often rather dismiss it because we cannot endure nor comprehend it, much less believe we can do something about it. Too often, our spontaneous response is one of cognitive dissonance.

Ultimately, the truth cannot be ignored. Our conscience must not let us ignore the facts. This horror is all very real. It is very calculated, and it is happening globally. Innocent children are being raped and murdered on a daily basis, victims of organized abduction and satanic ritual. With so many identical cases worldwide, all avenues of research constantly and consistently lead to the same conclusion. This goes way beyond our common comprehension of child abuse and pedophilia: the culture of ritual abuse is so heavily embedded in our most influential institutions and ‘protective’ agencies, that information is routinely suppressed and censored, protecting their networks, themselves and each other — the perpetrators.

(For example, the videos and research links embedded in my previous article had to be constantly replaced and updated, as they were routinely removed from circulation by supposedly impartial technology providers. This is still a work in progress… )

In my research, I recently came across a 5 part video series that provides similar details of satanic pedophile rings allegedly operating in France and Germany. Outlining a series of horrors endured and witnessed at the hands of satanic cultists, the children speaking here claim to have been subjected to and witnessed acts of slavery, rape, murder, torture, trafficking, as well as rituals involving masks and costumes, injections, underground tunnel systems, blood drinking, cannibalism, and ‘snuff movies’ — films of abuse victims’ deaths, which are said to sell for up to $20,000 Euros a piece.

Further Evidence of Institutional Abuse

There is extensive evidence that human baby and fetus trafficking networks extend into Central America and Asia, reportedly for the purposes of ‘black magic’ ritualIn one case in China reported in January, authorities rescued 37 babies and a toddler from an abandoned factory in the southwestern province of Shandong. The children were in poor physical condition and many were suffering from HIV/AIDS and malnutrition. Human traffickers were found to be recruiting pregnant women to sell their babies and hiding them in the factory until they gave birth. Once the women gave birth, they handed their newborns over to the traffickers and left. The babies were then drugged and smuggled inside handbags and luggage to a hospital morgue where they were kept until buyers arrived.

Another recent case uncovered a “baby making factory” in Nigeria, where young girls were used to “breed” babies, which are then taken and sold on the black market to traffickers for supply to networks of Satanic ritualists and pedophiles. According to reports, an unsuspecting women’s and children’s hospital provides the cover of a humanitarian outfit for the inhumane trade and sale of babies and children. This shocking 4 minute video leaves us with no doubt this crime against humanity is all too real, and by no means restricted to Nigeria alone.

Notably, this kind of cover operation is also in keeping with Satanic principles. In Satanism, war is peace, restriction is freedom, black is white. This is how they operate. Posing as the protectors of children simultaneously enables their access to victims and provides them a cover of respectability.

An extensive report containing an interview with a former undercover Interpol agent (Bannon) further reveals just how trafficking networks are set up. Bannon puts those who sexually exploit children into two categories: consumer-traders and producers:

“The consumer-trader is the guy or woman you’ve heard about – maybe the local teacher – who’s abusing children and buying images and selling images of those abuses online… The producer is the one who actually buys and sells the children across international lines, running a multi-billion-dollar business that truly has a global network that has connections all the way to terrorist cells.”

While child trafficking is condemned globally, many countries with laws against trafficking and molestation fail to enforce them. Moreover, such abuses are actually legal in some countries, such as Thailand and Pakistan. In Thailand, selling children is not only legal, it’s big business, contributing an estimated $1 billion to the Thai economy. This level of institutionalization makes rescuing victims from the system of abuse extremely difficult.

Agent Bannon continues:

“We were able to rescue these [Caucasian] children, but all of the Thai children we had to leave chained to their beds, padlocked behind steels doors… These six children – when we told them, ‘Follow us,’ it broke our hearts to see how quickly they obeyed. No matter what we said, they obeyed silently and effortlessly. And to see young children so broken that any adult telling them what to do they immediately obey is perhaps the most heart-rending aspect of this terrible work.”

“Those images will stay with me. You can’t erase them from your mind.”

Providing further evidence, award winning independent film director, Bill Maloney, released a landmark documentary in 2008 entitled Sun Sea & Satan. The film detailed Maloney’s visits to Jersey in the Channel Islands (between France and the UK) and the ongoing investigations into allegations of abuse at Jersey’s children’s care home Haut de la Garenne.

While these examples are shocking, they are really just scratching the surface of what many understand to be a much wider network operating all around the world, especially given how frequent and consistent these kinds of allegations (and apparent cover-ups) occur.

As MP John Mann told the British Parliament in May, “My constituency is no worse, no different to anywhere else… it’s every aspect of society.”

It is realistic to expect that such a well-organized criminal network would, like any other criminal network, utilize whatever influential conspirators or disinformation tactics they had at their disposal to discredit their accusers, suppress evidence and cover their tracks. The only difference between criminals who are protected by institutional veils and those who are not, is the extent of their influence, not their underlying psycho-pathology.

If we truly want to protect our children, we need to put aside our preconceptions of pedophiles, public figures and the agenda of the press, and genuinely try to understand what is happening. Pedophilia IS happening. We cannot continue to assume – as convicted pedophiles have always suggested – that children who accuse seemingly “upstanding” members of our society must be lying to serve some devious end. The facts at hand prove that is simply not true.

A Hampstead Coverup?

Not surprisingly, allegations of deviousness were leveled against Ella Draper following the release of her 9 year old daughter Alisa and 8 year old son Gabriel’s testimony of abuse that implicated the children’s father, actor Ricky Dearman, and an alleged network of Satanic abusers. However, when we consider the extensive evidence surrounding this case in totality and context, the official narrative portrayed by mainstream media of a scorned ex-wife and her two devious children appears to fail numerous tests of evidentiary scrutiny.

Firstly, a forensic linguistics analysis of the children’s leaked testimony provides a professional’s view as to the validity of the children’s statements. Forensic linguistics (or legal linguistics) is the application of linguistic knowledge, methods and insights to the forensic context of law, language, crime investigation, trial, and judicial procedure. Taking into detailed consideration the linguistic evidence provided by the children’s testimony, expert analysis (performed anonymously, for the protection of his or her identity) did not support claims of conspiracy in the children’s testimony, nor therefore of coercion or duress on the part Ms. Draper.

Furthermore, initial Police medical examinations of both children showed clear evidence of physical and sexual abuse. The children’s testimony includes explicit details of violent and sexual satanic ritual, and the children described identifying physical markers on the bodies of their alleged abusers. The children’s recollections also bore similarity to countless other cases of abuse reported around the world (which, as MP John Mann reminds us, is only the small fraction of victims who come forward to tell their stories compared to those who stay silent or are no longer here to speak at all.)

We must also remember that media silence tells a story of its own. Although it thrives on scandal (particularly in the UK), mainstream and even tabloid media did not cover these developments when the story initially broke in alternative media in early February 2015, instead maintaining an inexplicable silence on the matter. That was, until the High Court ruled in late March that Ella Draper (the children’s mother) and not Ricky Dearman (the father and alleged abuser) had mistreated the children. Raising many questions in the wider community, it was only after Mr. Dearman received the protection of a High Court ruling that the mainstream media reported any details of this complex story, publishing a string of headlines that were all staunchly sympathetic to Mr. Dearman:

Mother who tortured her two children to lie about satanic child sex cult… [20th March 2015]

The yummy mummy, a ‘satanic sex cult’ and the smears that terrorised a very swish London suburb… [23rd March 2015]

Police hunting runaway mother who tortured her two children into inventing fantasy claims about a satanic sex cult… [27th March 2015]

Father falsely accused by his own children of sexually abusing them [reveals]… his horrific ordeal [21st April 2015] (*this article also included photographs of the actor crying to camera.)

The degree to which any such case is covered by the mainstream media, and seemingly covered over by government agencies, inevitably leads one to wonder — just how deeply embedded is the culture of abuse within the hierarchies of our these institutions?

Organized Pedophilia and Child-Trafficking Implicates Governments, Media, Churches and Charities -Jimmy Savile

Historically, posing as the protectors of children while hiding behind celebrity, formality and (apparently) corrupted legal and media institutions, simultaneously has enabled pedophiles access to victims while providing them an effective cover story. Convicted pedophile Jimmy Savile is a perfect example of this; renowned as a flamboyant former presenter of the UK’s Top Of The Pops, Savile posed as a philanthropist, working with children and young people and visiting schools and hospital wards, which enabled him access to vulnerable children and a cover of institutional respectability.

In a disturbing irony, Savile played the role of the ‘Child Catcher’ in the 1968 movie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, catching children for the town’s elite.

Speaking of Savile’s apparent decades of criminality, Chairman of the BBC Trust, Lord Patten, wrote in 2012:

”Can it really be the case that no one knew what he was doing? Did some turn a blind eye to criminality?… Did some prefer not to follow up their suspicions because of this criminal’s popularity and place in the schedules? Were reports of criminality put aside or buried?”

Providing further insight into the apparent cover-up of Savile’s past by the BBC, UK Telegraph Chief Reporter Gordon Rayner revealed in his article 2012, Dark Side of Jimmy Savile Glossed Over at BBC, that:

George Entwistle, the former director-general, was told by one manager that he was “queasy” about the “real truth” of Savile’s past…  Danny Cohen, the Controller of BBC One, and a third executive were given a further warning, which went unheeded… 

When an ITV documentary exposed Savile’s paedophilia, the BBC was accused of a cover-up because of its decision to drop the Newsnight film…

[Investigator, Mr Nick] Pollard, a former head of Sky News, said… that senior people within the BBC knew about “the unsavoury side of Savile’s character” at the time… 

On Dec 2, at an awards lunch, Ms [Helen] Boaden [BBC’s Head Of News] says she told Mr Entwistle that “Newsnight were doing an investigation into JS [Savile] … it is probable I did mention it was about sex abuse.” Mr Entwistle’s reply was: “Thanks – keep me posted.”…

The report recommends that the BBC’s news and editorial management is reviewed, and questions whether the director-general should also be editor-in-chief.

According to Pollard’s 185-page report, The BBC’s decision to abort the Savile investigation:

“… started a chain of events that was to prove disastrous for the BBC… one of the worst management crises in the BBC’s history”.

Wrote columnist Mary Riddle in 2012:

At the heart of Savile’s story are two interlinked forms of violation – the abuse of children and the abuse of power. The victims were betrayed not only by the BBC hierarchy but also by the Surrey police, who failed to prosecute; by the DJ’s colleagues, who never spoke out; and by all those in awe of a star whose fame and bogus virtue shielded him from scrutiny until (no thanks to the BBC) his secrets emerged and the current wave of horror broke…

Jimmy Savile was given the glory, the freedom and the immunity to do as he wished.

So, with clear conflicts of interest embedded within its editorial and managerial structures, is the failure of the media to expose the truth of Savile an act of negligence, or an institutional cover-up of the highest order? This is a question that must be answered.

Here we will explore further evidence of institutional involvement in organized pedophilia networks, to shed some light on this dark and complex issue.

Child Trafficking, The United Nations and The Global ‘Peacekeepers’ Force

Statistics from the International Centre for Missing Children (ICMEC) estimate that 8 million children are reported missing each year around the world. Of that number, according to the latest U.S. Department of Justice research, an estimated 800,000 children will go missing in the United States alone — a rate of over 2000 missing children each day — with 466,949 of those cases entered into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database in 2014. With a current child population (aged 0 – 17) of around 74 million in the United States, the U.S. Department of Justice figures equate to around 1 child in every 92 going missing in the United States each year.

These statistics are staggering.

This is clearly an epidemic of staggering proportions; one we can no longer shrink from or pretend does not exist. And given the robust intensity of U.S. internal, military, informational and border securities, and the nation’s world-record incarcerated rate, this statistic is completely incomprehensible.

That is, until we begin to look internally for the root cause.

To account for such widespread childhood disappearances, which (for some context) outnumber cancer deaths in the United States by one third, we must fully comprehend this epidemic is both well organised and orchestrated. It is therefore no stretch of the imagination to acknowledge that the many thousands of young children whose faces have peered out from ‘missing’ posters and milk cartons across the United States, over many decades, may in fact have fallen victim to a global child-trafficking and slavery trade.

While child trafficking and abuse networks tend to be concentrated most highly in relatively peaceful areas with large foreign business and military interests, this problem does not appear to be isolated to western nations. Even larger, unknown numbers of children in Third World countries are disappearing each year, without a trace, with countless reports from around the world indicating children are being routinely sold by their families to make ‘ends meet’, sold by orphanages, and kidnapped by gangs who make their living by supplying ‘stock’ for the child trafficking trade. Some reports suggest these gangs including highly organized militia and private “security” companies, and networks operating under the facade of human rights workers funded by Governments and the United Nations.

A 2004 report from the UN’s Department of Peace Keeping Operations (DPKO) outlined the seriousness of this issue, however it seems to have had little to no impact to UN operations over the decade since its release.

“Human trafficking is a form of serious exploitation and abuse that is increasingly present in the UN peacekeeping environments. Trafficking exploits human beings for revenue through sex, forced labour and human organs. For peacekeeping (UN and other) there is a crisis of perception in relation to trafficking and the linked issue of sexual exploitation and abuse, which sees peacekeepers branded as more part of the problem than the solution, along with criticisms that the issue is not taken seriously by peacekeeping institutions.”

Today, the “crisis” outlined by the DPKO has not been formally addressed, and yet many would still rather believe that all of this is just another crazy ‘conspiracy theory’. In reality, the dismissal of such theories is at best a moral failure of our children to act on their behalf, and at worst, a conspiracy of global proportions.

Mounting evidence suggests that government-sponsored military contractors have utilized ‘peacekeeping’ positions (which provide both access and trust) to facilitate systemic abuses, and all under the legal impunity afforded to peacekeepers who operate these systems of abuse under the guise of freedom, liberty and philanthropy.

contract_to_tortureWell known examples include the 2003 Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse case (pictured left) in which U.S. military officers subjected prisoners of war to extreme acts of abuse and humiliation, taking ‘happy snap’ photographs as they did so. The systemic corruption of so-called “peacekeeping” forces was further demonstrated by a leaked video of Blackwater military employees who proudly videotaped themselves helicoptering around Iraq, shooting civilians for target practice and their own personal amusement. You can learn more here.

In more recent developments, a report from the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) released last month revealed that UN “peacekeepers” working in Haiti have been found to have raped Haitian women and children, citing 231 claims from Haitians of sexual violation at the hands of peacekeepers, often in exchange for food and other emergency relief supplies.

“For rural women, hunger, lack of shelter, baby care items, medication and household items were frequently cited as the ‘triggering need,’” the report said, adding that UN workers coaxed women and girls into sexual activities with “church shoes, cell phones, laptops and perfume, as well as money… In cases of non-payment, some women withheld the badges of peacekeepers and threatened to reveal their infidelity via social media,” the report said.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time that UN workers have been accused of these types of atrocities. Following the entry of UN “peacekeepers” into Cambodia, Mozambique, Bosnia, Sudan and Kosovo, authorities in each region reported sharp increases in allegations of sex trafficking and abuse. Meanwhile, earlier this year, the United Nations was caught trying to suppress details of their aide workers raping starving and homeless boys in the Central African Republic.

Notably, this kind of behavior (and cover-up) of so-called peacekeepers is not unique to the modern “War On Terror”. In the late ‘90s, military contractor DynCorp was hired by the U.S. State Department to provide “peacekeepers” for the United Nations police force in Bosnia, just as in Haiti now. Subsequently, two well-respected employees, Ben Johnston, a former DynCorp aircraft mechanic, and Kathryn Bolkovac, a U.N. International Police Force monitor, independently alleged that UN officials and employees of Dyncorp were engaging in perverse, illegal and inhumane behavior, including the purchase of women, illegal weapons, forged passports, and other criminal and immoral activities.

According to a 2012 report, What The UN Doesn’t Want You To Know:

[Kathryn Bolkovac] signed up with DynCorp, the private contractor providing American personnel for the UN mission in Bosnia.

The first of several nasty shocks came before she’d even left: among the recruits at DynCorp’s training week in Texas was a man from Mississippi. He’d been to Bosnia before and, and he told them all how scenic it was, adding, “and I know where you can get really nice 12- to 15-year-olds”. Bolkovac was baffled, believing she’d misheard…

[While running] a pilot project on violence against women… She found stacks of American dollars and foreign passports in a safe and, behind a locked door, seven girls. ‘Sheer terror,’ says Bolkovac of the looks on the girls’ faces. ‘It was exactly as you see in the film: ‘they’re huddled, they’re holding each other, they’re on these bare, stained mattresses’…

“They didn’t expect [the police] to help them,” says Bolkovac.

In her role as U.N. Police Force Monitor, Bolkovac also claims to have observed numerous individuals in the Bosnian and U.N. police forces who were not only using trafficked prostitutes but were also on the “traffickers’ pay-roll”. According to Bolkovac, members of the peacekeeping forces were routinely paid to give warnings on raids, and to return children who escaped from their abusers so they could be ‘recycled’ back into the system.

The more Bolkovac investigated, the more her U.N. colleagues turned against her, she says. Notably, four days after her claims were formally raised, Bolkovac was demoted, and a few months later fired by DynCorp outright. However, adding further weight to the validity of her claims, Bolkovac filed a lawsuit for unlawful dismissal against DynCorp in Great Britain following her dismissal — and won. The tribunal that heard her case maintained that, by whistleblowing, Bolkovac had made a ‘protected disclosure’ and should therefore have been protected, not persecuted, for her actions. (You can learn more here.) In closing comments, the tribunal remarked of DynCorp:

‘It is hard to imagine a case in which a firm has behaved in a more callous manner.’

Similarly, Ben Johnston, a former DynCorp aircraft mechanic, is another employee who claims that he witnessed his supervisors and fellow employees buying and selling minors as sex slaves, abusing them and/or selling them to gangs involved in child prostitution, slavery and pedophile rings.

According to a report from The Daily Bell:

It is obvious when it comes to the UN that corruption is ingrained. The UN was created much like the IMF, World Bank, etc (at around the same time) as a facility of globalist expansion and this is its underlying goal, not the other empty phrases that swirl around its “mission.”

Within hours of the [Bolkovac] ruling DynCorp settled a second whistleblowing case against it, offering an undisclosed sum to an aircraft mechanic from Texas called Ben Johnston, who had evidence of UN personnel buying and selling girls elsewhere in Bosnia. Johnston signed a gagging order.

‘It was very disappointing,’ says Bolkovac with a sigh.

Although disappointing, Johnston’s decision is understandable. A report from CorpWatch.org, US DynCorp Disgrace, explains the circumstances around Johnston’s apparent concession:

According to the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) lawsuit filed in Texas on behalf of the former DynCorp aircraft mechanic, “in the latter part of 1999 Johnston learned that employees and supervisors from DynCorp were engaging in perverse, illegal and inhumane behavior [and] were purchasing illegal weapons, women, forged passports and [participating in other immoral acts. Johnston witnessed coworkers and supervisors literally buying and selling women for their own personal enjoyment, and employees would brag about the various ages and talents of the individual slaves they had purchased.”

Rather than acknowledge and reward Johnston‘s effort to get this behavior stopped, DynCorp fired him, forcing him into protective custody by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) until the investigators could get him safely out of Kosovo and returned to the United States. That departure from the war-torn country was a far cry from what Johnston imagined a year earlier when he arrived in Bosnia to begin a three-year U.S. Air Force contract with DynCorp as an aircraft-maintenance technician for Apache and Blackhawk helicopters.

Clearly, Johnston’s treatment and the final issuing of a gag order is contradictory to the fundamental principles of truth and freedom these so-called “peacekeeping” bodies claim to represent. While it is disappointing that Johnston ultimately submitted to the non-disclosure terms of the gag order, the fact that such terms were offered or even contemplated by authorities reveals a great deal about the level of knowledge and intent operating behind those institutional walls.

Moreover, the allegations against DynCorp are not isolated, and Johnston wasn’t the only DynCorp employee disturbed by what he saw during his tenure. Along with Johnston, another employee Tom Oliver also lodged similar claims with Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID), once Johnston had decided to take formal action outside of the DynCorp chain of command. (You can learn more here.)

Organized Pedophilia and Child-Trafficking Implicates Governments, Media, Churches and Charities - Trafficking

These examples aside, the DynCorp company has a history of allegations relating to systemic corruption, including claims of waste mismanagement, fraud, human trafficking and drug-running whilst working under a United States Government contract to train Police Forces in Afghanistan, Haiti and Iraq. In 2010 The Guardian in the UK reported that DynCorp had been accused of providing Afghan police with drugs and child prostitutes.

“A scandal involving foreign contractors employed to train Afghan policemen who took drugs and paid for young “dancing boys” to entertain them in northern Afghanistan caused such panic that the interior minister begged the US embassy to try and “quash” the story, according to one of the US embassy cables released by WikiLeaks.”

There are many other cases and eyewitness accounts that raise questions over the legitimacy and agenda of the DynCorp operation, some of which can be followed here and here. Yet, it is evident that both corporate and government institutions prefer to ‘close ranks’ around such allegations, obscuring the chance of accountability, and in the process, raising further questions about the extent of corruption within these peacekeeping forces.

With mounting evidence of organized pedophilia and child-trafficking networks implicating high-level government, church and charitable institutions, many members of the community are left wondering: Are the world’s taxpayers unwittingly be used to fund organized crime? The kind of crimes that taxpayer-funded ‘War On…’ campaigns purport to combat? How do we bring criminals to justice if the criminals themselves control our justice and information systems?

As one of the top three U.S. Defense Force contractors receiving money from the United States Government, it is unfathomable that, for the most part, this story was ignored by the mainstream media in the U.S. With evidence and allegations mounting in relation to pedophilia, as well as drug- and slave-trafficking, the United States Government has a moral and legal responsibility not just to the U.S. people but to the people of the world — in whose backyards they wage their wars — to investigate DynCorp, and indeed their own internal regulatory systems. After all, this is the mechanism through which police, military and U.N peacekeeping forces are trained in countries around the globe.

Inexplicably, this situation appears to be of little concern to global authorities. Dyncorp is still being awarded large-scale contracts by several western governments and the United Nations, and despite mounting evidence that the corporation has committed and/or protected those who have committed human rights abuses, the U.S. continues to employ DynCorp to supply military personnel to U.N, forces such as those deployed in Haiti.

This situation did not go unnoticed within the U.S. Congress. In 2005 U.S. Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney questioned then-Secretary Of Defense Donald Rumsfeld over the Dyncorp scandals:

“I watched President Bush deliver a moving speech at the United Nations in September 2003, in which he mentioned the crisis of the sex trade. The President called for the punishment of those involved in this horrible business. But at the very moment of that speech, DynCorp was exposed for having been involved in the buying and selling of young women and children. While all of this was going on, DynCorp kept the Pentagon contract to administer the smallpox and anthrax vaccines, and is now working on a plague vaccine through the Joint Vaccine Acquisition Program. Mr. Secretary, is it [the] policy of the U.S. Government to reward companies that traffic in women and little girls?”

Following Congresswoman McKinney’s statement, Rumsfeld admitted on the record that the allegations were credible, but wrote them off as the actions of a “few bad apples”, refusing to investigate the potential that such abuses are in fact institutionalized, and as evidence suggests, not merely the actions of a few “rogue” employees. Today, 9 years on, DynCorp remains unaccountable to these accusations.

You can watch Ms. McKinney’s exchange with Mr. Rumsfeld here.

This all begs the question:

Is the U.S. Government’s apparent willingness to overlook allegations of misconduct against its contractors simply because the conduct of DynCorp’s employees is exactly as it was contracted?

While this situation seems to be of little interest to the United States Government, notably, it is of no interest to other international legal and regulatory agencies. Protected by international law, ‘Peacekeepers’ and ‘Humanitarian Aid Workers’ are indemnified against criminal charges whilst working in foreign lands on behalf of Government Military or the United Nations. This loophole creates undisputable opportunity for such positions to be abused for criminal means, and in the context of child abuse and trafficking allegations, provides a ‘safe’ mechanism through which global operations can flourish.

Therefore it is a sad reality that none of the accused in these cases are ever likely to face criminal charges under the current systems of governance.

The ‘Supreme Master’ Ching Hai and The ‘Papa Dearman’ Connection

In considering the breadth of evidence at hand, the extent of corruption evidenced by continually emerging child-trafficking and abuse cases goes well beyond what we typically perceive of “corruption”. Such abuses do not just reflect corruption of process or power, but corruption of the human spirit.

The testimonies provided by the children in the Hampstead case, and so many other cases the world over, detail stories of babies been trafficked for the purposes of Satanic ritual. To summarize this portion of the allegations made in the children’s video testimony:

  • Babies are supplied to the UK from all over the world, including the United States, South Africa, Portugal, Spain, Gayana, China, India and Hawaii.
  • Babies are either purchased, drugged and transported by international courier service, or the parents (cult members) bring them from other parts of the world.
  • A high-level member of the network – a real estate agent – provides empty properties for ritual and sexual abuse of children to take place.
  • The rituals they described involve child rape, sodomy, orgies, torture, cannibalism and human sacrifices. These activities were also filmed and sold.

Central to the children’s testimony was the involvement of their father, actor Ricky Dearman, who has known connections to the self-professed spiritual leader, the ‘Supreme Master’, Ching Hai. The children went on to assert that they worship the ‘Supreme Master’. Notably, the Satanic Bible also states that ‘Satan’s ministers will obey all commands of the ‘Supreme Master‘. While such an association is not on its own conclusive, these claims cannot objectively be overlooked, particularly as keeping up a charade of decency and respectability is vital to abusers, and in keeping with documented Satanic philosophy.

So then, who are Ricky Dearman and Ching Hai?

Ricky Dearman is involved in the film industry as an actor and has affiliations with ‘Supreme Master Television’, a television station airing from 14 satellite platforms and reaching hundreds of millions of households around the world. The beneficiary and focal point of this self-created spiritual hierarchy, Ching Hai is worshipped by followers the world over. Actively involved with child orphanages and schools in third world countries, she also has elite connections, including well-documented links to the Clintons (who themselves are alleged to have been involved in high level criminal activity).

In the research community, there have long been suspicions that Ching Hai works for the CIA. Supreme Master Ching Hai is also connected with the United Nations and, under the impunity afforded to ‘Peacekeepers’, is involved in many of the same activities as DynCorp’s contractors — in particular, crisis and disaster intervention, a role that places her among the world’s most vulnerable children.

Former members of the sect say involvement with Ching Hai has proven to be disturbing and dangerous, while insider allegations against the sect include institutionalize child rape, child pornography, child trafficking, prostitution, mind control, ritual torture and murder involving children and animals. (source.)

When we objectively examine this evidence, it cannot reasonably be argued that further investigation is unwarranted. Therefore, the apparent unwillingness of authorities to act on behalf of the victims or to examine documented issues of fact is increasingly suggestive of a systemic cover-up involving extremely influential, high-ranking, members of the institutions implicated.

For example, evidence of the British Police and Intelligence Services involvement in organized crime emerged in 2014 via a Metropolitan Police report that was leaked to The Independent:

Famous for its secret handshakes, Freemasonry has long been suspected of having members who work in the criminal justice system – notably the judiciary and the police…

Secret networks of Freemasons have been used by organised crime gangs to corrupt the criminal justice system… Operation Tiberius, written [by Metropolitan Police] in 2002, found underworld syndicates used their contacts in the controversial brotherhood to “recruit corrupted officers” inside Scotland Yard, and concluded it was one of “the most difficult aspects of organised crime corruption to proof against”.

So, with implications of complicity reaching far beyond the doors of our most powerful institutions, what of the grassroots movement attempting to find justice for these children?

Organized Pedophilia and Child-Trafficking Implicates Governments, Media, Churches and Charities - William Wilberforce

The Information War: Disinformation and Infiltration

It has been alleged by many researchers and activists following the release of the Hampstead tapes that disinformation agents have been strategically placed within circles working to validate Ms. Draper’s allegations, in a campaign of confusion and chaos designed to protect the guilty. I am not alone in suspecting this tactic was employed at recent public protests held outside the Hampstead Church, which resulted in two arrests. Where confusion and chaos inevitably reigns, so too does disinformation. This tactic is not new; it has been used against truth-seekers by governments, media and intelligence agencies for the past half-century or more.

The disturbing reality is that institutionalized pedophilia and child-trafficking networks are among the most organized and comprehensive abuses upon humanity. It hides in powerful shadows, inflicts horror on the innocent, and demonizes their protectors. So, when it comes to fighting organized crime in the 21st Century, we truly are fighting an information war. If you think the notion of a deliberate “information war” is paranoid or conspiratorial, please understand that is the same term used by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011, when defending her department’s proposed increase to propaganda funding before a U.S. Congressional Committee.

“We are in an information war and we are losing that war… and unfortunately we are paying a big price for it.”

The information war, she added, is being won by information channels that offer “real news”, adding that the U.S. should get back “in the game” and do “what we do best.”

Broadly speaking, infiltrating, opposing or discrediting movements serves a number of purposes in an information/credibility war. Besides gaining inside information, disinformation agents may deliberately leak information, create division, and steer the ‘group thinking’ and activity of support networks away from achieving real outcomes. Controlled opposition also satisfies the casual concerned observer that “someone is doing something”. Such infiltration also serves to ‘media tarnish’ the reputation of the those asking questions of the official narrative, portraying the extremist Satanic Panic lunatic archetype that the media loves and the public loathes, and therefore steering public perception and undermining any factual evidence they stand for. In this way, the guilty can be made to look like victims and the victims to look guilty, sabotaging the clear passage of truth. Historically, this simple kind of manipulation has been extremely effective, if we are blind to it, and this is something that activists need to fully understand and remember in all our dealings, if we are ever to make a dent in uncovering the truth in cases where key evidence is apparently disregarded by the official narrative.

In an information war, government disinformation agents work on all sides. By allowing ourselves to be infiltrated, influenced and manipulated, we make it easy for them to subjugate, infiltrate, divide and conquer, chalking up another win for the perpetrators of abuse.

And when it comes to cases in which high-level institutional corruption is already suspected, it would be naive to assume the work of disinformation agents does not extend as far as government-led inquiries and judicial process.

Notable Names “Steering The Ship”

In the public discussion of the Hampstead case, and of organized pedophilia in general, there are some notable names steering the ship. However many researchers and truth-seekers are beginning to suspect the ship has been steered in the wrong direction.

The kind of cover-up tactics activist believe are being employed in the Hampstead case also appear to have been employed in Canada after claims of Satanic ritual abuse and murder of indigenous people were lodged with the Canadian Courts. Kevin Annett, a former minister of the United Church of Canada, founded the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) in 2010 to support and bring justice to the victims of institutional abuse. According to the itccs.org mandate:

Our Mandate: (1) To lawfully prosecute those people and institutions responsible for the exploitation, trafficking, torture and murder of children, past and present, and (2) To stop these and other criminal actions by church and state, including by disestablishing those same institutions.

Since its inception, the ITCCS has achieved no such result, and Annett has been accused of double-dealing by those working closely with him. Explains author and former colleague, Alfred Lambremont Webre:

By the evidence, it appears the ITCCS is a fabrication. Some investigators think Kevin Annett is a globalist operative. In that case the ITCCS is a globalist fabrication to displace, scatter and retard community and self-sovereign restoration of authentic society. Our working hypothesis is that one of the functions of ITCCS is to displace and discredit any genuine [efforts]…

In the course of following through on due diligence we have been attacked and distorted by Annett and followers… [We have] yet to receive verification that ITCCS Brussels personnel or the court exists…

Incredibly, Kevin Annett recently told UK activist and radio show host Andy Peacher that he no longer believes Satanic ritual abuse is even happening. In this startling ‘turn around’ statement, Annett now says he attributes countless reports of Satanic ritual abuse to the planting of “false memories” and “false stories and labels in people’s minds”. This statement is in direct contradiction to his long-held observation that:

“These things happen regularly… They are definitely tied into, not just Roman festivals, but also Satanic calendars. There are certain days of the year that seem to have more significance in terms of human sacrifice. New moons apparently often tie in to those times of the month as well. But the Roman festivals are significant because they seem to be guiding the actions of these cults that operate within or around the Catholic Church.”

Incidentally, child welfare groups agree with the observations Annett now claims to dispute. Given his sudden divergence from well-established facts, many activists and researchers now believe the “false stories and labels” are in fact Annett’s.

Concerns have also been raised within activist networks about the role of influential activist Belinda McKenzie, founder of McKenzie Friends. McKenzie is closely associated with Kevin Annett, having publicly supported him throughout 2010 and 2011 while he travelled to the UK to appear at a series of rallies. Rumoured to be an MI-5 agent with links to money laundering and ‘independent’ think tanks, questions about McKenzie’s agenda have been further compounded by her recent call for an ‘amnesty’ for pedophiles — essentially, advocating increasing legal protection for the perpetrators not the victims of child abuse.

Now, with questions still unanswered about both Annett and McKenzie’s agenda, it is notable that the organisations they front (ITCCS and McKenzie Friends respectively) were founded within months of each other, and perhaps more notably, both organisations bear a very similar logo – a detail that has not gone unnoticed within activist circles.

Given the historical prevalence of disinformation tactics in “information wars”, many truth-seekers are asking: Have these individuals been strategically placed at the front of the awareness campaign? Are they here only to keep their fingers on the pulse, while steering genuine activists away from the truth, and justice? And what of online awareness campaigns?

As every truth-seeker well knows, the infiltration of organized action groups also extends to the online world, where paid disinformation shills work diligently to distort facts and defame the individuals who oppose the hidden complicity of authorities.

Since January, there have been extensive online efforts to discredit the testimony of the two children involved in the Hampstead allegations, and in particular, the integrity of their mother who first reported the allegations to authorities. These counter-efforts appear to be coordinated from within London, while technical data suggests the efforts of activists are being monitored closely by members of the Westminster Methodist Hall. It is also worthy to note, the Methodist Church has long-standing connections to the United Nations, providing Westminster Methodist Hall as the venue for the very first United Nations meeting held in 1946.

One particular website appears to have been created specifically to undermine any and all evidence relating to the Hampstead case. Calling themselves Hoaxtead Research and bearing remarkable resemblance to the Hampstead Research website, the Hoaxtead Research site works primarily to denounce the testimony of the children in this case and to attack any research that hints at wrong-doing on the part of anyone but the children and their mother. The tactics employed by Hoaxstead Research are reported by many activists to involve only character assassinations of those involved without credible or objective research. This development has led many in the community to believe this site was created only to enact the tried-and-tested tactic of the guilty — to discredit credible testimony with emotion, chaos and confrontation.

(For more information on the nature of professional trolls, please see the article: Pay for Comments – Confessions of a Paid Disinformation Internet Shill.)

Among the hoax theories that are circulating online, the most commonly believed is that the children’s mother, Ella Draper, concocted this story and coached her children to repeat it, in order to gain legal custody of her children. However, 3 minutes of research reveals the simple flaw in this hoax theory: Ella Draper was already the children’s primary care giver, and so had no need to make false claims in order to secure custody of her children. In 2011, a residence order issued by the court assigned legal residence to Ms. Draper, and subsequent claims of disputed access to the children arose after claims of abuse came to light, not before.

You can read the chronology of events as outlined by Ms. Draper HERE, which details allegations of violence against Ricky Dearman as well as the events that led Ms. Draper to take action on behalf of her children.

Raising further questions, as BBC News reported:

Delivering her judgement at the High Court, Mrs Justice Pauffley said the children had been forced to concoct accounts of horrific events and that their stories were a result of relentless emotional and psychological pressure and significant physical abuse by their mother’s new partner in collaboration with their mother.

However, the claims of psychological and emotion abuse at the hands of Ms. Draper and her partner did not correlate to the physical evidence of sexual abuse provided by the initial police investigation, which revealed scar tissue on the children’s genitals and other evidence of physical trauma directly related to long-term sexual assault.

While these facts may have been obscured in the media to the casual observer, many activists believe this in an act of desperation, itself providing further evidence of just how far up the social and political ladder the corruption that protects pedophiles from justice actually reaches.

Be Part Of The Solution

For the sake of our children, and their children, we need to accept the facts; where there is smoke, and lots of it, there is fire. As informed and conscientious human beings, we have a moral responsibility to hear these witness accounts, and take the time to analyse and discern the scope of problem we are being confronted with — no matter how overwhelming it may seem. Yet, to the majority of the public this kind of information is so horrendous and unthinkable that it is beyond the capacity of many people to believe this could be true, much less contemplate the details. The result is cognitive-dissonance, which inevitably leads to inaction.

But our ignorance of this matter is no longer an excuse! Given the weight of evidence at hand, it is no longer acceptable nor is it even logical to write-off each accusation of organized and ritualized abuse that arises as an isolated fiction. There is certainly reason to suspect that many of the 8 million children who ‘disappear’ each year are falling victim to coordinated pedophile networks. A culture built on Satanic ritual, they have the motives, the power and the means to traffic children around the globe, under the guises of “upstanding citizens” and “peace keepers” and “good Samaritans”, with the necessary influence to suppress the truth through corruption of the so-called justice system.

So, how do we bring criminals to justice if the criminals themselves control the justice system?

Firstly, we must stop accepting the calculated excuses of the perpetrators of organized crime, and finally take steps to confront and dismantle it.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men (and women-Ed.) to do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke

As responsible adults in a world seemingly gone mad, who else but us – you and me, here and now – can speak and act for these abused children? Our failure to make a stand in whatever way we can, whatever the cost, would mean a failure of our most basic human ‘duty of care’ to our youngest and most vulnerable. Our children are precious, and they have the right to be children; they are our most valuable investment in humanity’s future. To fail them would be a failure of our society.

It is the therefore obligation of the adult world to defend the rights and safety of our precious youth, and hold accountable those who sadistically and methodically seek to harm them. We must call pedophiles out as the organized, institutionally-protected ‘monsters in suits’ they are, and carry out our ‘duty of care’ with all the diligence we can muster.

With so much information, misinformation (non-deliberate) and disinformation (deliberate) surrounding this case, and pedophile networks in general, it is essential that we as responsible members of the community exercise critical discernment of all information, sources and motivations. As history has begun to prove, with information and awareness on our side we can oust these Satanic predators from the institutional veils they hide behind, no matter what their role or rank may be. 

In the words of freelance scholar and author John Lash:

“It’s a horrible crime. But like any other crime, it can be overturned by the proof of the evidence. The only way to maintain that crime is to hide … and suppress the evidence that contradicts the official narrative… It’s my view that the people who have attempted to do that are losing control. They’re losing control of the narrative…

“If you want to see … a life of pleasure and mutual aid on this planet, never perfect… and if you recognize the narrative that is preventing that from happening, you must also recognize that it is not enough to defeat and overcome that narrative. There must be another narrative to replace it.” 

So, on behalf of the world’s children and parents alike, I plead with those employed within government, religious, military, media, and peacekeeping institutions — particularly those in positions of power and authority — to do your job. Blow the whistle. Speak the truth, and stand up courageously for the rights of children everywhere. If you still have a common love of humanity, but until now have been too afraid of potential consequences to come forward, now is the time. While the general public remains uninformed about the true nature of the ‘elite’ and their abuses, the political narrative surrounding these cases will remain the same. But with your help, the momentum of the current public awareness campaign will soon reach ‘critical mass’.

Get Involved!

Please add your name to the petition to Justice Anna Pauffley. We are requesting that she:

  • Honour the residence order put in place in 2011 which assigned legal residence of the two Hampstead children, Alisa and Gabriel, to their mother.
  • Order a thorough and comprehensive investigation of the children’s original disclosures, and the handling of the inquiry by the institutional powers implicated, including the circumstances that led to the children revoking their allegations after 6 days in institutional care.

Research. Discern. Inform others.

We are the victims’ only voices, and together we will be heard.

We’re watching you Westminster!

Please take a moment to watch this powerful and heartfelt speech by Russell Burton at the anti-child abuse rally “Victims & Survivors Unite – Breaking The Cycle Of Abuse” held at Westminster on 27th June 2015.

“WHAT WE ALLOW WILL CONTINUE. We must be the generation that puts an end to this evil because I fear for the sanity of future generations if this filth is allowed to retain its control over us.”

Five Current Mass Media Thought-Control Strategies

Intro

Many people are still utterly oblivious to the sad reality that the mass media is primarily engaged in one task above all others: misleading the public in accordance with the State’s (read: Deep State’s) needs.

Various media tactics play to our already established biases and logical blind spots. It is child’s play to add another layer of disinformation on top of firmly set foundational assumptions that are supportive of it. Nothing is easier for the Cabal/Deep State and its proxy governments than to feed us more of the bullshit we have long since been manipulated into accepting.

We have entered the post-fact era of news reporting, according to some observers, but it appears to me that we’ve been in that era for quite some time now, and only now that public distrust of government and media is at record-high levels is the establishment operating at record-high levels of damage control, busily dubbing all non-State-approved media sources as “fake news,” and struggling harder than ever to keep the people in their conceptual prisons.

Many unwitting folks welcome this activity gladly, failing to realise that the mass media is, in combination with mainstream education, the primary tool used to control the behaviour of the populace in ways that serve the Control System which undermines our freedoms and cripples our minds in a downward spiral of deceit and exploitation.

Below we break down our five current mass media thought-control strategies employed by these “dinosaur outlets “so that we might be somewhat less susceptible to them here on out. You may want to share this with friends who aren’t quite up to speed yet.

Warning: What you are about to read is not government-approved and may result in mind expansion, enhanced cynicism, and sharpening of critical thinking faculties.

5 Primary Strategies for Thought-Control

1. Fake News in the Post-Fact Era: Lie and Fabricate to Suit Your Purposes

As a mass media (State-approved) outlet, you’re free to falsify and confabulate information or make false claims with impunity and make no attempt to appeal to legitimate evidence. This is such a fundamental mainstream media strategy that it saturates us on a daily basis. Whatever the Establishment (the “Cabal”) decrees is repeated ad nauseum as gospel in the mass media.

If you believe I am being unjustly harsh, then please consider the words of Dr. Udo Ulfkatte (from the video above), the late veteran German journalist who not long ago outed mainstream media for its complicity in the global fraud against humanity:

“I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public…It is not right what I have done in the past – to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia…and it is not right what my colleagues do and what they have done in the past, because they are bribed to betray the people…all over Europe…I am fed up with this propaganda.”

Dr. Ulfkatte added that in his pro-American days of writing, he was “supported by the Central Intelligence Agency,” and repeated that he was “fed up with it” and didn’t want to do it anymore. Not long after publishing his explosive book Bought Journalists / Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News, Ulfkatte was found dead, allegedly of “heart failure.” Ponder on that for a moment in the knowledge that in black projects there is electromagnetic weaponry that can remotely simulate or trigger “heart failure” as well as other physiological breakdowns.

Ulfkatte had said that most corporate media journalists in the United States and Europe are “so-called non-official cover,” meaning that they work for an intelligence agency. “I think it is especially the case with British journalists, because they have a much closer relationship. It is especially the case with Israeli journalists. Of course with French journalists…It is the case for Australians, [with] journalists from New Zealand, from Taiwan, well, there is many countries,” he said.

Consider all of this next time you hear any pronouncements made by the media on the subjects of politics, health, medicine, war, terrorism, etc.

Among the bogus stories Ulfkatte says he was ordered by the CIA to plant in his paper was the false claim that Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi was building poison gas factories in 2011.

“The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia,” he told RT.

Ulfkatte’s words are a plain confession of guilt and complicity. There is no theory here, it is all conspiracy fact. And lest you think the activities of the alphabet agencies are restricted to TV media, think on the following.

“[T]he tycoons told General Butler the American people would accept the new government because they controlled all the newspapers.1 (emphasis added)

This was decades ago, and we know that concentration of the media into the hands of fewer and fewer owners has intensified ever since. The situation is such now that mainstream media outlets are to be avoided across the board by any thinking individual.

Former Washington Post publisher Philip Graham “believing that the function of the press was more often than not to mobilize consent for the policies of the government, was one of the architects of what became a widespread practice: the use and manipulation of journalists by the CIA”. This scandal was known by its code name Operation MOCKINGBIRD. Former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein cites a former CIA deputy director as saying, “It was widely known that Phil Graham was someone you could get help from”.2

There are countless examples of fraudulent MSM news that could be cited. Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” was a pretext for invading Iraq – a pretext that was known by intel. agencies and the US government to be false at the time. It is even openly acknowledged in the mass media now that it was a fraudulent claim – not that it’s any consolation to the tens of thousands of Iraqis who died as a result of the USA’s invasion. The fact is the WMD notion was made up; pure fiction concocted to serve a violent and predatory agenda under the guise of “liberation.”

Let’s not forget the infamous CNN Charles Jaco clip (above) wherein he appears to be giving a fake news report from a stage set while the subtitle states he is in Saudi Arabia during the Desert Storm operation (Jan 17 – Feb 28, 1991). There is something (everything!) exceedingly “off” about this clip and I encourage you to watch it carefully and decide whether this is a classic example of blatantly false news reporting or not (Jaco sent some menacing letters around to websites featuring this video, threatening legal action, so I’m choosing my words carefully here).

There are  many Youtube videos in which apparently fake news reports by mainstream outlets (CNN is a star) have been compiled together for easy viewing. I encourage you to do some exploring if you haven’t already seen the depths these media whores will sink to. It is clear that mainstream outlets are not above using a green screen to create the illusion of being “on the ground” at the scene of the action in order to get the “scoop” on other outlets, or, more to the point, to promote the false narratives designed by the Establishment for our consumption.

The Honourable Mention Goes to…

Crisis actors are known to be employed by media outlets and intel. agencies to participate in staged events with the aim of making their fake news appear authentic. This is something of an open secret of the industry now, and Youtube is your friend on this one too. Youtube compilations and video analyses make it very convenient for us to show that fake news is standard practice for CIA-controlled mass media. Crisis actors, stage sets, props, bogus scripts, sellout journalists: it’s all par for the course for the dying mass media.

2. Denounce Alternative Views as Conspiracy Theories

In 1967 the CIA seeded the term “conspiracy theories/theorists” into the public consciousness with one goal in mind: to discourage free and independent investigation, analysis and open discussion of facts. What sparked this initiative was increasing criticism of the Warren Commision’s report into the assassination of JFK – cracks were starting to appear and be noticed. The CIA was anxious that the public was not being sufficiently thought-controlled and that counter-arguments to the Establishment’s narrative needed to be more effectively dealt with.

The memo, which was marked “psych” (psychological operations), according to zerohedge.com, outlined a number of strategies for shaping and controlling public opinion, all of which are clearly still employed throughout the mass media today. Part 3 (b) of the memo is worth reproducing in full:

To employ propaganda assets to answer and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passage to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories.4

The CIA strategy involved a self-referencing closed network of assets and allies all endorsing each other and referring the public to each other’s material in an attempt to create the illusion of Establishment credibility, and a “consensus” viewpoint, while simultaneously tarring all other perspectives as mere “conspiracy theories.” It was a neat (read: dirty) trick which has worked wonders for these liars ever since.

Summarising the CIA memo’s guidance, the other pieces of advice for information management included:

  • claim the conspiracy would be too vast for so many people to keep quiet about it
  • dismiss eyewitness testimony as unreliable
  • claim no new evidence has emerged that the authorities have not already considered
  • do not initiate new discussion around “conspiracy theories,” but only address those discussions already taking place (so, ignore the problem wherever possible and don’t draw attention to it)
  • claim it is destructive/unhelpful, or irresponsible to speculate

These strategies are all still visible today in the media’s activities, the same tired old memes and techniques being endlessly repeated to the point of catatonia.

My years of study have shown me one thing very clearly about conspiracies: conspiracies are how the world runs. Obama’s very own Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein has written:

Of course some conspiracy theories…have turned out to be true. The Watergate hotel room used by Democratic National Committee was, in fact, bugged by Republican officials, operating at the behest of the White House. In the 1950s, the Central Intelligence Agency did, in fact, administer LSD and related drugs under Project MKULTRA, in an effort to investigate the possibility of “mind control.” Operation Northwoods, a rumored plan by the Department of Defense to simulate acts of terrorism and to blame them on Cuba, really was proposed by high-level officials…5

On and on it goes.

3. Blame the Russians (or any of the other invented Establishment bogeymen)

The “Commies” are a tried and true bugaboo that is still used by establishment media to distract us from wherever we should be placing our attention. A recent blatant example is the notion that Russia is somehow responsible for Hillary’s Clinton’s defeat by Trump in the US Presidential elections. The Cabal media will try just about anything to de-legitimise the crushing the defeat their chosen puppet (Hillary Clinton) suffered. Casting aspersions on the outcome was only the natural thing (for them) to do.

The “Red Menace” is not as the Establishment would have us believe, however, that doesn’t stop the US government and media from blaming “the Russians” for supposedly “hacking” the US election and corrupting the outcome. There was no credible evidence provided for their insinuation, of course.

Evidence has not traditionally been the strong suit of the mainstream media.

In fact, a recent Wikileak has revealed that intelligence agencies like the CIA can simulate Russian (or other) hacks by creating a “cyber fingerprint” that incriminates whoever the Establishment wants to scapegoat or demonise, so it is utterly meaningless for the US media (or any other Cabal media outlets) to point fingers at Russia or anyone else for “hacking” their systems in light of the foregoing information. “Russia hacked us” should be read as “we hacked ourselves and tried to pin it on Russia.”

Along with the new (March 2017) data-dump of CIA material, WikiLeaks issued this:

“The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.”6

It’s about misdirection and/or creating a cover story for executing a plan or agenda that you would never publicly admit to, akin to blaming Bin Laden and his lackeys for 9-11 when it was in fact Mossad and key elements within the US government and defense structure. Giving the public a scapegoat also satisfies a “primal” emotional need for focusing attention on a “guilty party,” someone to loathe and fear, and plan and enact retribution against.

The latter is also part of the “problem, reaction, solution” strategy designed to preempt the public into demanding the Establishent’s pre-ordained “solution” to a crisis or disaster that the Establishment itself has engineered but made to look like some other culprit is responsible (see Operation Northwoods for one example that, fortunately, never got off the ground, or 9-11 for an example that unfortunately did).

4. The Hegelian Dialectic and the False Dichotomy:

For the mass media’s purposes, you’re either “pro” or “anti,” “left” or “right,” “liberal” or “conservative,” and there are no other options.

The purpose of the false dichotomy is to restrict thought to two polar opposites that are diametrically opposed, in accordance with the modern bastardized form of the Hegelian dialectic. Hegel’s premise was that the human mind can’t understand anything unless it can be split into two polar opposites, thus his formula was: thesis + antithesis > synthesis. The Hegelian dialectic was meant to be a way for two parties in disagreement to eventually reach understanding (synthesis) through logical argument.

The idea as this concept is applied today by the media is to keep people at loggerheads in an unresolvable stalemate in which the only visible option to each party is to dig heels in even deeper, and attack the other side ever more vigorously. The current equation has omitted the part about logical argument, because that is how the situation has been deliberately engineered to stifle progress.

If you are asking “what is the point of that?” or “who in their right mind would want to have a system like that?” then understand that the international banksters and intelligence agencies (Deep State) – or from a lower level, giant transnational corporations – run the show and have ruled over Western “democracy” for a long time, socially engineering the populace through mass media and deliberately dumbed-down mainstream “education.” This is not a “theory,” but a well documented reality.

The last President of America to challenge the banksters’ hegemony was JFK and we know how that turned out for him when he tried to do the right thing by the people. The globalist oligarchs would have none of it. The slaves must not be allowed to leave the plantation. Ever since JFK, the “right” and the “left” have been controlled by a “para-governmental” force known as the Fed. The Fed, of course, is very much connected to Big Pharma – we’re talking about the same network of elitist sociopaths that dominate the world’s major industries (and run the international pedophile rings), essentially.

The point of the false dichotomy is primarily to foster tunnel vision in the public and prevent intelligent, flexible thinking, instead conducing to simplistic dogmatism and meaningless polemic. Prevention of learning is arguably the primary goal of the false dichotomy, because new information, and more sophisticated thought patterns and paradigms would be the death knell for Big Pharma’s stranglehold over the collective human psyche.

The most topical real world example of how this false dichotomy situation can play out is the “debate” around vaccination.

The media’s job is to present what I call an “absolute ontology” (and to promote “asymmetrical epistemology”) wherein the deck is stacked in favour of the Deep State, the corporations, and their proxy governments.

In essence: one point of view (The Establishment’s) is deemed as intrinsically more valid than all others. How can you topple such a sacred cow? It’s like trying to show a fundamentalist Christian that the Bible is fallible and riddled with self-contradiction – doomed to failure.

Vaccines are simply “safe and effective” – end of story. If you’re not blindly and completely “pro-vax,” then, the only other location you can occupy in this moronic polemic is “anti-vax,” and in the false world crafted by Big Pharma and the media, everyone who is “anti-vax” is a crackpot lunatic worthy of only disdain and ridicule. The question “what if their statements or claims actually have some merit?” is NEVER entertained – it cannot be, for then new information and awareness might develop, and we can’t have that if thought-control is to be maintained.

Crucially, nothing is said about the issues that the “pro” and “anti” representatives appearing in the media are not directly addressing. Attention is fixed on and restricted to whatever is deemed appropriate (how “wonderful” vaccines are), while the most important data is deliberately suppressed.

For example, have you ever seen anyone appear on mainstream TV to discuss vaccination (or fluoride, for that matter) within the context of covert softkill depopulation? I haven’t. What about vaccines and nagalase? No, of course not. The discussion is restricted to a biased narrative about how vaccines “don’t cause autism.” The wider array of biological harm – and evidence supporting it – is not discussed. The hundreds of scientific papers demonstrating the danger of vaccines are verboten.

The “debate” on this subject is farcical at best, but designed to limit opinions to slogans, buzz words, and catchphrases, stifling any actual critical thinking. Absolutely anyone who parrots the party line of “safe and effective and the best thing since sliced bread” is given all of the airtime and praise in the world, while anyone raising serious questions or issues on the subject is marginalised and diminished from the outset by the rigged (government/corporatocracy) narrative.

Keeping discussion reduced to a simple “pro” or “anti” stance means that there is no room for compromise, no middle ground, no room to evolve one’s viewpoint in the light of incoming information and discovery – and more to the point, because those tarred as “anti-vaxxers” are so thoroughly demonised and persecuted, there is little incentive for anyone to depart from the status quo and challenge the herd mentality with independent analysis. Thus, the sheep keep themselves in the pen.

Once the ego has firmly identified with a paradigm it stops listening, stops thinking, stops questioning, and – above all else – stops learning. Perhaps that is why Robert Anton Wilson said that “belief is the death of intelligence.” Stalemate is inevitable with this being the prevailing psychological dynamic, but then again, the purpose of the false dichotomy is not to facilitate real progress, but stifle it.

5. Tell People Exactly What to Think Instead of Presenting the Facts

The idea that the media is a benign force whose mission is to offer balanced perspective and multiple viewpoints such that the public can make their own informed decision is profoundly naive in light of intelligence agency involvement behind the scenes in determining programming content. The idea is to engineer in the public those viewpoints that serve vested interests. Period. Aside from that, most other media content is generally mindless distraction fuel, meaningless fluff for the stupefied masses to titillate themselves with (celebrity gossip, sporting coverage, “feel good” pieces, weather forecasts, etc.). Two real life examples follow.

Example 1: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski (below) recently made a startling admission of sorts during an exchange with Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about President Trump possibly “trying to undermine the media.”

She said: “And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, [Trump] could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

There you have it, folks, straight from the horse’s as…, er, mouth. It’s “our job” to “control what people think.” It’s there in black and white, in plain English.

Example 2: I have a recent example from more local sources. A friend of mine whose name I won’t mention was recently involved in organising events for a visiting speaker from overseas who has had the Medical Mafia (and Media Mafia) in Australia frothing at the mouth. My friend was speaking to a “journalist” from the Northern Star who offered to “cover” one of the events:

“I said ‘no thank you, you guys haven’t been overly truthful when covering us so far.’
His verbatim response: ‘It’s not our job to be truthful or helpful.’”8

Enough said. What more do you need?

MSNBC and these other media whores around the world are operating from the same playbook that Cabal stooge George W. Bush was on Nov. 10, 2001, when he exhorted the world, “Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories,” thus demonstrating the asymmetrical epistemology that was already so well entrenched during his terro…, er, tenure.

As incompetent and foolish as Shrub came to be perceived by so many millions, many of those same people still unconsciously follow his advice by not tolerating “outrageous [read: any] conspiracy theories.” The CIA/Deep State has done its work well. Credit where it’s due.

Mainstream media control is so centralized now that the only option for the thinking man or woman is to turn to the unregulated information purveyors on the web, where, yes, anything at all can be posted, including suppressed truth, which is a radically different situation to the MSM (fake news), where anything BUT the truth is allowed.

The conflict within the Deep State just broke into open warfare

The battle raging in the Deep State isn’t just a bureaucratic battle – it’s a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation.

When do the unlimited powers of the Intelligence/Security agencies threaten America’s domestic and global national interests? The CIA and its political enablers claim the agency’s essentially unlimited powers, partially revealed by WikiLeak’s Vault 7, pose no threat to America’s interests, since they are intended to “defend” American interests.

This is the rationale presented by neocon CIA allies in both political parties: the CIA can’t possibly threaten America’s interests because the CIA defines America’s interests.

This is the wormhole down which civil liberties and democracy have drained. It is an extraordinarily defining moment in American history when the director of the FBI publicly declares that there is no such thing as “absolute privacy” in the U.S.

In effect, privacy is now contingent on the level of interest the Security State has in the private conversation/data. If we read the U.S. Constitution, we do not find such contingencies: civil liberties are absolute. Post-1790 presidents have temporarily mooted civil liberties in time of war, and the CIA-led camp of the Deep State has justified its unlimited powers by effectively declared “a state of war is now permanent and enduring.”

So what’s left to defend if America has become the enemy of civil liberties and democracy, i.e. become a totalitarian state ruled by Security Services and their political henchmen and apologists?

I have long suggested that the tectonic plates of the Deep State are shifting as the ruling consensus has eroded. Some elements of the Deep State–what I call the progressive wing, which is (ironically to some) anchored in the military services– now view the neocon-CIA (Security State)-Wall Street elements as profoundly dangerous to America’s long-term interests, both domestically and globally.

I have suggested that this “rogue Deep State” quietly aided Donald Trump (by subtly undermining Hillary Clinton’s campaign) as the last best chance to save the nation from the neocon’s over-reach that the Establishment’s Wall Street-funded leadership (Bush, Clinton, Obama, et al.) has overseen–including granting the CIA and its allies virtually unlimited powers unhindered by any effective oversight.

This profound split in the Deep State has now broken into open warfare. The first salvo was the absurd propaganda campaign led by Establishment mouthpieces The New York Times and The Washington Post claiming Russian agents had “hacked” the U.S. election to favor Trump.

This fact-free propaganda campaign failed–having no evidence didn’t work quite as well as the NYT and Wapo expected– and so the propaganda machine launched the second salvo, accusing Trump of being a Russian patsy.

The evidence for this claim was equally laughable, and that campaign has only made the Establishment, its propaganda mouthpieces and the neocon Deep State look desperate and foolish on the global and domestic stages.

The desperate neocon Deep State and its Democratic Party allies went to absurd lengths to undermine Trump via the “Boris and Natasha” strategy of accusing Trump of collaborating with the Evil Russkies, even going so far as to briefly exhume former President G.W. Bush from deep-freeze to make a fool of himself, saying the Trump-Evil Russkies connection should be “investigated.”

Now the rogue elements have launched a counterstrike–Vault 7. Here is one example of how quickly the CIA’s over-reach has been absorbed by the body politic:

I highly recommend reading WikiLeak’s summary of Vault 7: Vault 7: CIA Hacking Tools Revealed.

We now know that the CIA maintained a special program (UMBRAGE) to mimic Russia-based hackers and create false trails back to fictitious “Russian hackers.” A number of highly experienced analysts who reviewed the supposed “Russian hacks” had suggested the “evidence” smelled of false trails– not just bread crumbs, but bread crumbs heavy-handedly stenciled “this is Russian malware.”

The body count from Vault 7 has not yet been tallied, but it wouldn’t surprise me if former President Obama and his team eventually end up as political casualties. Non-partisan observers are noting all this over-reach occurred on Obama’s watch, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed that one of Obama’s last executive orders stripped away the last shreds of oversight of what could be “shared” (or invented) between the Security Agencies.

Indeed, the entire leadership of the Democratic Party seems to have placed all their chips on the increasingly unviable claim that the CIA is the squeaky clean defender of America.

Vault 7 is not just political theater–it highlights the core questions facing the nation: what is left to defend if civil liberties and democratically elected oversight have been reduced to Potemkin-village travesties?

If there are no limits on CIA powers and surveillance, then what is left of civil liberties and democracy? Answer: nothing.

The battle raging in the Deep State isn’t just a bureaucratic battle–it’s a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation. Citizens who define America’s interests as civil liberties and democracy should be deeply troubled by the Establishment’s surrender of these in favor of a National Security State with essentially no limits.

Americans tasked with defending America’s “interests” globally should be asking if a CIA/NSA et al. with unlimited power is detrimental to America’s soft and hard power globally, and toxic to its influence.

The answer is obvious: a CIA with unlimited power and the backing of a corrupt Establishment and media is more than detrimental to America’s soft and hard power globally–it is disastrous and potentially fatal to America’s interests, standing and influence.

Those of us on the sidelines can only hope that the progressive wing of the Deep State, the rogue elements who see the terrible danger of an unlimited National Security State, will succeed in undermining the powerful political support for this toxic totalitarian regime.

 

Pizzagate: Debunking the Debunkers With Undeniable Evidence

Dear friends,

Pizzagate: Debunking the Debunkers

Major media reports on Pizzagate would have us believe that anyone who gives credence to this story is off their rocker. The term “fake news” rose to prominence shortly after this story broke in early November of 2016, and was quickly applied to debunk any report seriously investigating Pizzagate.

Only one major media news report (from the CBS Atlanta affiliate) has presented solid evidence of this disturbing story of powerful people possibly involved in pedophilia. Yet two days after it was aired, that revealing news video was strangely removed from the CBS website and replaced by a report on fake news about Donald Trump. This disappearance of a key news story and the undeniable evidence below suggests Pizzagate is a huge story that someone doesn’t want you to know about.

Note that the pedophilia issue has nothing to do with political affiliation. Though Pizzagate involves mostly high level Democrats, many Republicans have been convicted of child abuse. The most prominent case – which got very little press – was the conviction of Republican Dennis Hastert, who served as the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, one of the most powerful political positions in the Unites States. Hastert was sent to prison by a judge who called him a “serial child molester.” He also happens to be friends with Tony Podesta, one of the key players in Pizzagate.

Pizzagate originated from the Wikileaks release of thousands of emails from John Podesta in October and November of 2016. Podesta served both as chief of staff for Bill Clinton in the White House and campaign manager for Hillary Clinton. The Pizzagate story got its name from a number of strange usages of the word pizza in the released emails. Yet the most powerful evidence of something serious involving Pizzagate can be found in the archived Instagram account of James Alefantis, owner of Comet Ping Pong Pizza in Washington, DC.

 

James Alefantis

Pizzagate: Podesta, Alefantis

Alefantis with Tony Podesta in Podesta’s home

Alefantis is connected with John Podesta, as evidenced by this email exchange released by Wikileaks in which Podesta agrees to have dinner with him. Alefantis is also friends with John Podesta’s lobbyist brother Tony, who was named by GQ magazine as one of the 50 most powerful people in Washington, DC. John Podesta did not make that list, by the way, yet strangely, James Alefantis was included in this list of the 50 most powerful people in Washington.

All but a handful of the 50 people listed on GQ’s list are deeply involved in politics or the media, and many are household names. So how did James Alefantis, known only as an owner of two DC restaurants and an art aficionado make this list of most powerful people? Watch this video interview or read this 2015 Metro Weekly article on Alefantis and you have to wonder how he earned that distinction.

To explore this question, take a look at the archived Instagram account of Alefantis, who goes by the username “jimmycomet.” Shortly after the Pizzagate story exploded on the Internet, he made his account private, but a copy of the account made from the archives is available at the link below. But warning, be prepared for some very disturbing images, some of which are very sexually suggestive.

http://www.WantToKnow.info/sexabuse/james-alefantis-instagram

For those who choose not to explore the above link, here are three non-explicit images from the account to give an idea of this unusual material. The side comments are quite revealing.

Pizzagate: Debunked
Pizzagate: Debunk
Pizzagate: Debunker

Please note that the photo of Obama playing ping pong with a child is not meant to implicate Obama in this, though it does appear from the comments that Alefantis managed to get invited to a White House Christmas party.

These three images alone are enough to raise alarm bells. And if you look at all the images in Alefantis’ account at the link above, over half of them either are sexually suggestive, involve children, involve S&M, or some combination of the above. Several of them explicitly link sex to pizza, which is where the term Pizzagate comes from. One image is a poster promoting the film Lolita with an image of a vagina. For those who don’t know, Lolita was all about a man carrying on a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl.

Notice in the last image above Alefantis gives the definition of a chicken lover as “an adult male homosexual sexually attracted to underage males.” He is openly gay. David Brock, the gay founder of the popular website Media Matters, paid $850,000 in hush money when he started dating Alefantis (as reported in this Fox News article) to keep his previous lover quiet. What was Brock trying to hush? From his Instagram account, it is clear Alefantis has an obsession with sex and with children. Many of the images and comments are highly suggestive of sex with children.

Based on all of this, here is a theory certainly worth exploring: Could the reason Alefantis is listed among the 50 most powerful people in the capital city of the United States be that he is running a child sex ring which serves the powerful elite. And are some of the strange references to pizza both in the comments of Alefantis in his Instagram account and in a number of the leaked Podesta emails actually a code word for child sex? Another important question is why is the media debunking this, and why was the one CBS report that did come out removed and replaced in very short order?

The Podesta Brothers

Now take a look at Alefantis’ powerful friend Tony Podesta and his interest in sexual art. Here are key quotes from a Sept. 23, 2004 Washington Post article on Tony’s strange art tastes:

Podesta is counted among the nation’s most important contemporary art collectors. Inside the elite Chelsea galleries, he and his wife, Heather, are gossiped about. All the art stars know their names. In Washington, the couple is recognized, too. Podesta, 60, has ridden a long career on Capitol Hill to his current perch as a top-tier lobbyist. He spearheaded President Clinton’s successful 1996 Pennsylvania campaign.

Tony favors art with in-your-face nudity and social critique. A piece in [his] Woodley Park living room [is a] nearly eight-foot-tall color photo. [It’s] an update of a late-15th-century painting of the dead Jesus [which] replicates the original … in vivid color and minute detail [minus] the shroud, displaying his subject in all his nakedness. “You’ve got to be pretty secure to have an eight-foot-tall naked man in your living room in Washington, D.C.,” Heather says. Tony’s younger brother John (yes, that John, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff) admires his choices.

Folks attending a house tour … earlier this year got an eyeful when they walked into a bedroom at the Podesta residence hung with multiple color pictures by Katy Grannan, a photographer known for documentary-style pictures of naked teenagers in their parents’ suburban homes. “They were horrified,” Heather recalls, a grin spreading across her face.

Another example of Podesta’s most unusual taste in art is mentioned in this wikileaks email from artist Marina Abramovic to Tony Podesta, where she says:

Dear Tony,

I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining?

All my love, Marina

Pizzagate: Marina Abramovic

Abramovic on cover of Dust magazine

What is Spirit Cooking, you might ask? Abramovic shot a video of this most strange form of art, which you can watch on this webpage. However, viewer beware! The video is quite disturbing even though it only uses fake blood.

In one part of the video, Abramovic paints these words on the wall: “With a sharp knife, cut deeply into the middle finger of your left hand. Eat the pain.” In another part, she pours fake blood over child-sized statues. If you don’t have the stomach for the video, you can get an idea by doing a search of Google images using “Marina abramovic spirit cooking” or simply click here. Why were the Podesta brothers invited to join her in this Spirit Cooking? Is it just art?

Another example of the bizarre art work of Abramovic is also optional here because it is quite graphic and involves nudity. To see a photo of Lady Gaga (on left) standing beside Marina Abramovic as they admire a full-sized, blood-covered corpse Abramovic created as art for the “Devil’s Heaven” gala benefit, click here.

Is this evidence from Pizzagate proof the Podesta brothers and Comet Ping Pong Pizza owner James Alefantis are involved in child sexual abuse or a high-level child sex trafficking ring? No. But there is enough solid, disturbing evidence here to demonstrate without doubt that these people at the least have a strange and disturbing obsession with sexually explicit art and images sexualizing children. The fact that Alefantis is listed among the 50 most powerful people in Washington would also suggest he is doing something major to draw the attention of Washington’s elite.

Once again, the question arises, why has the media has come down so hard debunking any reports of this? Certainly the evidence is disturbing, but don’t blood and guts often lead in the news?

Other Major Cases of Pedophilia

Pizzagate is but one of many cases where events with reliable, verifiable evidence of child prostitution rings at high levels have been reported and then repressed and debunked. For undeniable evidence of powerful child prostitution rings leading to the highest levels of of the U.S. government, watch the suppressed Discovery Channel documentary “Conspiracy of Silence.” An excellent segment by Australia’s “60-Minutes” team “Spies, Lords and Predators” also covers a pedophile ring in the U.K. which reaches to the highest levels of government.

Then there are the many major media reports, such as a New York Times article on child sex abuse in Hollywood, this CNN report covering massive Pentagon child pornography accusations, a Reuters article titled “Britain shocked by growing soccer child abuse scandal,” a Forbes article titled “Government Workers With Ties to Child Porn,” a BBC report on the huge scandal around popular U.K. TV personality Jimmy Savile who abused over 450 victims, and much more available here.

If you want to know more and choose to research Pizzagate on the Internet, you’ll find a huge amount of material and lots more evidence suggesting the possibility of major child pedophile rings reaching the highest levels. You’ll also find lots of major media debunking of solid evidence. Yet you’ll also find a lot of people jumping to conclusions based on questionable evidence. It’s important to be discerning and check the sources of all information for reliability and verifiability.

As you consider these disturbing matters, let’s not forget the power of sexuality to compromise almost anyone. Where have each of us in our lives been inappropriate or treated ourselves or others badly in sexual ways? As we do our best to expose and stop sexual abuse out in the world, let us also do our best to reach ever higher levels of integrity in our own sexuality.

Jimmy Savile and 7/7 coverups connected?

Jimmy Savile: ‘It couldn’t happen again.’ Yes it could and it’s probably happening right now

Tony GoslingBeginning his working life in the aviation industry and trained by the BBC, Tony Gosling is a British land rights activist, historian & investigative radio journalist. Over the last 20 years he has been exposing the secret power of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and élite Bilderberg Conferences where the dark forces of corporations, media, banks and royalty conspire to accumulate wealth and power through extortion and war. Tony has spent much of his life too advocating solutions which heal the wealth divide, such as free housing for all and a press which reflects the concerns of ordinary people rather than attempting to lead opinion, sensationalise or dumb-down. Tony tweets at @TonyGosling. Tune in to his Friday politics show at BCfm.
Jimmy Savile: ‘It couldn't happen again.’ Yes it could and it's probably happening right now

 

We heard this week yet more horrors about the BBC presenter, ‘volunteer hospital porter’ and prolific child abuser Jimmy Savile having molested living patients at 28 separate hospitals, as well as testimony that he gained access to at least one mortuary to sexually abuse corpses. But despite Savile having up to a thousand victims, it was only due to the immense courage and persistence of a handful of selfless journalists that the devastating story of Britain’s most prolific ever pedophile and child abuser saw the light of day.

Since the scandal broke in October 2012, the London media have criticized police, royalty, government officials, health service managers and BBC staff for covering up Savile’s crimes, but few if any of these media commentators has admitted to their own vital role in hushing up Britain’s ‘worst kept secret’ for decades. After the shameful sacking last month of Richard Ingrams, who broke the Savile story in his magazine ‘The Oldie’, is there anyone left to break such a scandal again?

Friends in the highest of high places

Many have been shocked at Savile’s ability to keep his child sexual abuse secret for nearly fifty years, while mingling with royalty and others at the top of British society. Those he abused were told they better never breathe a word about it because he had ‘friends in high places,’ which he did.

Those who endorsed Britain’s most prolific ever child sex abuser were not just the obvious and unpunished BBC bosses, but included Prince Charles and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. In his regular contact with these figures, Savile must have been vetted by Britain’s counter-intelligence service, MI5. Why the Security Service also endorsed a serial child abuser, giving him the highest security clearance in the land, has never been adequately explained.

One of the Savile victims’ lawyers, Liz Dux, in response to today’s appalling hospital reports put it like this: “Saying that this [sexual abuse] was something that happened in the 1960s and couldn’t happen today is simply not good enough…. Nobody is being held to account.” Since nobody has been punished why shouldn’t it happen again? Why shouldn’t it be happening now, still?

It may comfort us to hear “it couldn’t happen today”, but where is the evidence for that? Are Britain’s press and parliament freer than they were thirty years ago? No, the circumstances surrounding the emergence of the Savile story suggest that such a scandal may never be exposed again because immense establishment pressure can be leveraged to keep a lid on a story, and indeed many of those who eventually told us about the Savile scandal have now lost their jobs.

London’s media ‘professionals’ spike the story of the decade

Social Affairs Correspondent Liz Mackean, from the BBC’s nightly flagship Newsnight, was the only senior journalist in the country with the courage to bite the bullet on the ‘worst kept secret in journalism.’ She put her career on the line and pushed her editor to broadcast the Savile accusations. Despite Liz, a former BBC Radio colleague of mine, having obtained heart-wrenching interviews with Savile’s victims in December 2011, Newsnight editor Peter Rippon refused to even watch, let alone transmit them. He waved a fraudulent Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) report around, which exonerated Savile and told Liz to forget about it.

This was not just bad professional judgment but made Rippon complicit in Jimmy Savile’s pedophilia in an even more serious way than individual health service staff and managers who shredded complaints about Savile when he was alive. These victims had risked a great deal to go on camera and on the record, but BBC top brass decided to compound Savile’s abuse by pulling the rug out from under them. Despite being moved sideways by the corporation after the scandal broke, Rippon was actually endorsed by the corporation and given another senior BBC editorial job.

Not prepared to roll over and have the story of the decade spiked by an editor who had become another one of Savile’s ‘friends in high places,’ Liz spoke to freelance journalist Miles Goslett who wrote up her Newsnight horror story and offered it, one by one, to all Britain’s national newspapers. Goslett dutifully spoke to editor after editor, but not a single one would publish it. So he turned to the alternative press and although Private Eye didn’t print the story, eventually, in March 2012 Miles got to tell his tale in former Private Eye founder Richard Ingrams’ magazine ‘The Oldie’.

Despite eventually being so spectacularly exonerated, Liz Mackean could not carry on at Newsnight, and, since her Savile tribulations of December 2011, all the show’s top staff, one by one, have abandoned ship. First, when technicians refused to stop deleting his interviews, political correspondent Michael Crick, then economics editor Paul Mason, and most recently, last week, the show’s anchorman for the last 25 years, Jeremy Paxman, presented his final show.

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) report bullying is rife in the BBC and senior management simply do not have the will to check it. Jeremy Paxman’s parting riposte this week was that the dumbed-down current affairs show is ‘made by thirteen year-olds.’

Private Eye – Britain’s ‘controlled opposition’ scandal sheet?

Though many were surprised the Savile story appeared in The Oldie and not the much higher circulation Private Eye, I was not. After having reported on IRA terrorism in the early 1990s for the BBC, in March 2007 I found myself investigating the London bombings. When I came up with evidence that a privatized security contract on the London Underground may have been linked to the 7/7 attacks, which killed 52 people, it was to Private Eye that I turned.

Israeli company Verint Systems had won the CCTV surveillance contract five months before the bombings. Verint, formerly known as Comverse Infosys, had recently changed their name because their parent company, Comverse, was embroiled in a fraud scandal in the United States. Chief executive of Comverse, Kobi Alexander, ended up being chased half way across the world to a hideout in Namibia before he finally paid off the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) fines to the tune of a cool 54 million dollars. What, I asked, was such a foreign firm with a former explosives expert in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Daniel Bodner as CEO, doing in charge of any part of London Underground security?

London Underground’s CCTV is of particular interest because not a single image has ever been produced of the three alleged 7/7 bombers on, or getting onto, any of the bombed tube trains that day. I also pointed out to Private Eye that then Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who happened to be in London on the day of the bombings, was reported by the Associated Press (AP) in Jerusalem as not leaving his hotel that morning to go to his scheduled Israel investment conference because he had received a warning. There was only one problem with this – the bombings were supposed to be a surprise attack.

Attacks on public transport are the hallmark of what is known in far-right circles as a ‘Strategy of Tension’. Their purpose, as in Italy’s 1980 Bologna Railway station bomb, planted by the state as part of NATO’s Operation Gladio, is to convince press, public and politicians alike of a need for increased government ‘security measures’ in an apparently senseless, random attack on public services.

Instead of printing my report about the London Underground security firm Comverse’s crimes, or legitimate worries about foreign private security firms being a potential vector for terrorism, Private Eye instead held fire for a year, until November 2008, and then printed a smear against me in their anonymous ‘Ratbiter’ column. It had been cut and pasted from Harry’s Place, the anonymous website of Zionist lawyer David Toube, and accused me of being a homophobic, anti-Semitic bigot. Nice!

On the really big international scandals, Private Eye cover up for the establishment. After the death of Princess Diana in Paris, Private Eye cruelly dubbed bereaved father of Diana’s soon to be fiancé, Mohammed Al Fayed, ‘The Phoney Pharaoh’. In the Jimmy Savile story, despite testimony of ritual abuse ‘The Eye’ mocked psychotherapist Valerie Sinason and other professionals who supported the victims. Britain’s scandal sheet has become a ‘limited hangout,’ an establishment tool for controlled dissent.

As his prize for leaving the establishment’s biggest scandals alone and playing along with the pantomime of British democracy, Private Eye’s editor, Ian Hislop, is now a regular panel show guest on network TV and radio, and his views on this, that and everything else are ‘immortalized’ in mainstream TV documentaries.

West Yorkshire police The Cook Report and Savile’s ‘satanic rituals’

Psychotherapist Valerie Sinason had been talking for years, to anyone who would listen, about Savile. She personally interviewed two of his victims in her London based ‘Clinic for Dissociative Studies’ who told her at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire that they had been repeatedly sexually abused in horrific rituals they described as ‘satanic.’

Wearing robes and masks in the hospital basement and to Latin chants of ‘Hail Satanus’, the idea, it seems, was two-fold: for Savile to ‘share’ his victims with other abusers and also to so deeply traumatize the children with supernatural threats of demons and devil masks that, through fear, they would never dare breathe a word to anyone. They were being groomed, as so many children are in government ‘care homes’ for serial abusers, and for pimps, heading down the lonely road to a life of abuse or prostitution.

Sinason has not been the only one to talk of satanic ritual abuse in connection with Savile. Britain’s most popular TV journalist ever, Roger Cook, also exposed what he believed was a satanic ritual abuse ring in Savile’s home town of Leeds, Yorkshire. During the airing of an edition called the ‘The Devil’s Work’ on 17 July, 1989 (under the umbrella of the ten-million-viewers-a-night ‘Cook Report’ series), witnesses told Cook that a certain ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice shop’, run by one Chris Bray, was connected to a ritual abuse ring in the city. Post-transmission threats by Bray to prosecute Central TV proved empty.

Ironically, in 2000, it was Rupert Murdoch’s now infamous News of the World that destroyed The Cook Report by printing three weeks of double page spreads strewn with lies about Cook ‘making up stories.’ By the time Roger Cook had beaten Murdoch back in the courts, a new boss had arrived at ITV and Britain’s most successful and popular ever current affairs series was dead.

Unfortunately, the program, made with the help of courageous ritual abuse victims, literally went up in smoke when it was destroyed in a fire at a warehouse run by ‘secure storage’ firm Iron Mountain, along with the entire archive of Central TV’s Cook Report.

The explanation as to why Savile was never prosecuted in his home town of Leeds is now clear, although it is still denied to this day by West Yorkshire police. Every Friday morning Savile held what he called his ‘breakfast club’ with the ‘great and good’ of the city – social gatherings that included senior police officers. This cozy relationship is why the pleas of Savile’s victims to health officials and police went nowhere for decades. Savile’s friends in West Yorkshire’s ‘high places’ would doubtless prove doubly useful by deflecting unwelcome questions to police from reporters.

Like Richard Ingrams everyone with guts in journalism is being squeezed out

With the dismissal of The Oldie editor Richard Ingrams on May 30, 2014, followed by all the magazine’s top staff over the last few weeks, one of the last British news outlets with the will to expose evil deeds in high places also looks to have been killed off.

All we are left with now in Britain is what Indian writer Ravi Zacharias calls ‘postmodern’ news. Outlets that remain are more loyal to the power elite than they are to the public, so while they will merrily print all sorts of minor corruption scandals, the ones that extend to the very top of British society, to evil deeds in royalty, the army council or City of London blue bloods, may never see the light of day again.

This largely Tory elite have a simple, unsportsmanlike principle: if any organization irks you, political or media, simply bankrupt it through the courts, or buy it up and put your cronies in charge, preferably both.

Not asking the difficult questions and not investigating the powerful is by far the easier option, but is it journalism? The fact is, many opinion formers in Britain would rather not know about depravity among those who hold our fate in their hands.

But without publishers and broadcasters with the sort of courage Liz Mackean, Miles Goslett and Richard Ingrams demonstrated in breaking through the Savile cover-up, it is only a matter of time until the soul is ripped out of our society, and we become a nation led by the nose to a tune played by thirteen year olds.

The Complete Breakdown Of Every Hillary And Bill Clinton Speech, And Fee, Since 2013

So due to popular demand, we appended to the 2013 speech detail first released last week the full breakdown of Hillary’s and Bill’s 2014 and 2015 speeches which had been provided previously as part of her mandatory disclosure in May of this year.

As Politico cautions, the disclosure omits an unknown number of speeches that the Clintons delivered while directing the payment or honoraria to the Clinton Foundation, despite instructions on the and guidance from the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, saying that honoraria directed to a charity should be reported.

Still, as readers will note, even the “modest” data that Hillary chose to share is quite stunning.

We hope it will surprise nobody that the bulk of speeches were bought and paid for by Wall Street and affiliated “financial entities” because that’s what hollow populist pandering is all about – pretending to be an “everyday American” while getting paid tens of millions by Wall Street and America’s biggest corporations.

How many millions?

Since 2013 Bill Clinton has been paid $26.6 million for 94 speeches; Hillary’s grand total is slightly less: $21.7 million for 92 private appearances.

Below we present the full breakdown of every publicly disclosed speech event by Hillary Clinton, together with the associated fee.

And likewise for Bill Clinton:

And a visual way of showing the above data.

Zoe Konstantopoulou’s speech in the Greek Parliament on 22 July 2015: The complete subordination of a democratic country to the will and demands of other governments is not an agreement

Admittedly the politically and personally painful moments which we have experienced in parliament during this term are multiplying.

In my capacity as Speaker of the House, I sent a letter to the President of the Republic, Mr. Prokopis Pavlopoulos and to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras (see in French :http://cadtm.org/Lettre-de-Zoe-Konstantopoulou-Le), noting that it is my institutional responsibility to emphasize and underline that the conditions this bill is being introduced under allow no guarantees of compliance with the constitution, no protection of the democratic process or the exercise of legislative power of parliament, nor a conscientious vote by members of parliament (see post-scriptum in http://cadtm.org/Greece-The-Consequences-of-the). Those conditions are blatant blackmail by foreign governments of European Union member States on this government and on the members of parliament. The legal measures are introduced without any possibility of amendment by the parliament as was acknowledged by the Justice Minister, whom I honor and respect deeply, as he knows; their implementation would result in a major intervention in the functioning of justice and the exercise of the fundamental rights of the citizens, tearing down both the functioning of Greek democracy as a social state under the rule of law in which there is a separation of powers according to the Constitution, as well as the preservation of the principle of fair trial.

Ministers are being coerced into introducing legal measures whose contents they do not agree with, but which they are directly opposed to, in this respect the statement by the Justice Minister was telling, and members of parliament are being coerced into voting them, while they too are opposed to their contents, and in this respect every statement by members of parliament in the two parliamentary groups which make up the parliamentary majority was also telling.

All this is happening under the direct threat of a disorderly default and reveal that, in truth, this bill which foreign governments and not the Greek government have chosen as a prerequisite, is an attempt at the completion of a dissolution, since this bill contains a major intervention into the third independent function, which is justice. This bill attempts to undermine the functioning of justice and is lifting basic guarantees to a fair trial and basic and fundamental rights of citizens.

I consider it my institutional duty to react as Speaker of the House as well and to ask my counterparts in all the parliaments of the member States of the European Union, as I have done in the past and as I did in my letter to the President of the European Parliament (see http://cadtm.org/Letter-Addressed-to-President-of ), to react and to take a stand against this dissolution.

Likewise in my letter to the President and the Prime Minister, which I am going to enter in the minutes, I have asked them to formally inform their counterparts of the coercive and forceful conditions under which this vote has occurred.

Minister, I am addressing you in my capacity of the previous parliamentary term. I have addressed you before in this capacity, when I congratulated you for the bills you introduced and especially for your pioneering legislation on the prison system. I am addressing you from the capacity with which I was honored by the parliamentary group of SYRIZA and the current Prime Minister, then opposition leader Mr. Alexis Tsipras, the capacity of the head of the SYRIZA parliamentary group for transparency, justice and human rights and from this capacity I tell you that it is evident that no one in the parliamentary group of SYRIZA endorses the provisions of this bill because the parliamentary group of SYRIZA during the previous period as well, had expressly objected to and strongly opposed this same law, which ironically, is being introduced in an identical form, as it had been introduced by your predecessor Mr Athanassiou, and is being accelerated in a shocking way by the creditors in order to put the nail in the coffin of one more expression of democracy.

Because just like they have attempted to turn the NO of the Greek people into a YES in both the communiqué of the Euro Summit as well as in the previous law introduced here again through emergency procedures last Wednesday, so they are attempting to convert the 93.12% NO of lawyers as recorded in a nationwide referendum for the first time in early December 2014, into a YES.

These deprecating moves against democratic expression are entirely symbolic on the level of a referendum of lawyers and on the level of a nationwide referendum of citizens so that there is no doubt that the message which is being sent by the creditors is that democratic processes are futile, that direct democracy as expressed by citizens or professionals (lawyers, in this case), is irrelevant.
This is a poisonous message for European societies, it is a message that the left and SYRIZA must not allow to be either sent or circulated.

It is clear that what is being attempted is the obliteration of both the government and the parliamentary groups that support it, through blackmail. It is clear that what is being directly questioned is democracy in our country. What is asked of us, what is asked of me, Minister, by the creditors is, in reality, to issue, if I could, a seal that would say, “Greek Parliament” and hand it over to them in order to validate their diktats.

It is not acceptable that after SYRIZA and the committee for justice, rights and transparency struggled so fiercely against the undemocratic manipulation of the 800 pages in the article that was the measures of November 2012, the government be forced by blackmail and humiliation (that is the intention) to now introduce 977 pages, in two articles, one of which contains 1008 articles of the Civil Procedure code and the other 130 articles incorporating a European directive, many of which are 2 and 3 pages long. The government of the left cannot be forced to introduce such abbreviated and condensed, urgent articles, with suffocating deadlines, articles it has consistently denounced in the past.

Minister, I know that by addressing you I am knocking on an open door, because you have consistently fought against such regulations, you have consistently expressed and thoroughly analyzed
all the reasons why this code should have been withdrawn in 2014, and indeed was withdrawn, and that was a great victory not only for the lawyers who put up a struggle in defense of citizens but it was also a huge victory for the citizens’ movements, for all those bodies which were mobilized and it certainly was a huge victory for the main opposition party of the previous period and the opposition as a whole.

This is the victory they want to turn into defeat and destruction in order to once again send the message that we must legislate through fear. Mr Juncker said it today, shamelessly: “fear,” he said, “has led to the agreement”; and is it ever possible for this to be accepted and tolerated in a European Union, which has as its statutory principle the welfare of peoples and societies, the protection of rights and the shielding of democracy?

Minister, the NO of the lawyers on the 2nd and 3d December 2014 meant and still means NO to fast-track foreclosures, NO to auctions and forced expulsions, NO to mock trials on paper to prevent the hearing from proceeding, NO to the further degradation of justice, which is a pillar of democracy, it means NO to a further undermining of the constitutional rights of citizens.

When in the summer of 2014 Mr. Hardouvelis brazenly undertook the obligation to compensate for any consequences of judicial rulings which would annul memorandum provisions, the then opposition, the justice committee and the department of justice of SYRIZA were the first to step forward and say this could not be tolerated. Yet it is that very same bill that is being forced through with blackmail. So it would be good for my colleagues and comrades, whom I honor without exception, not to forget their own commitments and speak of an agreement. Coercion is not an agreement, blackmail is not an agreement, the aim to force the complete subordination of a democratic country to the will and demands of other governments and other countries, is not an agreement.

And we must not forget our commitments because at some point we might forget everything and we might begin referring to the content of this bill as if it was our own. It is not our own, it is not the wish and the will of the government. This is also made evident, Minister, by the fact that you have set up a special committee to examine another draft code of Civil Procedure.

And it is not even the wish of members of parliament, who will vote in favor and belong to parliamentary groups supporting the government. It is not their wish to apply these inhumane measures, which leave citizens (borrowers especially) completely defenceless in front of the banks (see post-scriptum in http://cadtm.org/Greece-The-Consequences-of-the ).

Minister, you know it, but perhaps citizens do not know this well, that the head of the committee that drafted this code was Mr Chamilothoris, who was responsible for the monstrous memorandum law 4055 of 2012, which has been collectively denounced not only by bodies but also by lawyers and representatives of the judiciary and which SYRIZA has pledged to repeal but also, that members of the drafting committee of this legislation which is now being accelerated are legal advisors of the banks. That is who the members of the legislative drafting committee that was formed by the memorandum governments are and there should be no doubt that the objective served is precisely, once more, to hand over of the property of the citizens to the banks, that is the servicing of the banks and the bankers at the expense of citizens.

We must not open the door to allow this objective to be implemented, an objective promoted by the adoption today of this Code of Civil Procedure and here I would ask you specifically and my colleagues who are lawyers, to speak frankly; passing legislation is not a trivial thing, it is not a temporary thing and not a joke. This framework is becoming State law for the first time and indeed, in the form of a code. It is becoming State law that the Greek State is giving way to the banks and ranks after the banks in auction procedures. It is becoming State law that workers give way to the banks and rank after the banks at auctions. It is not enough to say that we vote now and will make sure they will not be applied. When we attempt to stop them from being applied, they will tell us, “but you voted for it”; moreover we know that we ourselves will not be in office permanently, whatever our present position.

This is a piece of legislation that goes into force on 01/01/2016. That proves both that there is no urgency and that it can be discussed under normal conditions but also it raises major concerns in relation to the future aspirations and achievements of those who seek to overthrow this government and to humiliate the political forces that support it, and to prevent them (us) from standing tall in the minds of citizens and of society.

Colleagues, as a member of parliament for SYRIZA I could never vote for this bill; as one formerly in charge of the committee for the control of parliamentary work in issues of justice, transparency and human rights of the Parliamentary Group of SYRIZA, from which position I fought for three years to stop the memoranda attack on justice and civil rights but also the memoranda orgy of corruption and vested interests, I could never vote for this bill; as a lawyer, I could never vote for this bill and as Speaker of the House, I could never legalize procedures which will make Parliament merely decorative, which waive the guarantee function of Parliament, circumventing the conscience of parliamentarians and ultimately discarding democracy. Thank you.

Greek debt audit – Definition of terms

Cephas Lumina

The mandate of the Truth Committee on Public Debt is to examine the nature and extent of the country’s public debt, as well as the processes relating to the contracting and/or accumulation of the debt and the impact of the cuts or changes in the provision of public services, programmes and benefits by the Government on the human rights and well-being of all people living in Greece, in order to identify what share of the debt can be considered as illegitimate, illegal, odious or unsustainable and thus unpayable. In this context, it was important that the Committee should have a shared understanding of these terms. To this end, the Committee created a small working group to propose definitions of the terms which would inform its work.

The working group reviewed the various definitions of the terms as used by various scholars, debt relief campaigners and others and proposed some definitions which were subsequently discussed and adopted by the Committee. These definitions, which provided the framework for the assessment of the debt undertaken by the Committee over the last month or so, are the following:

“Illegitimate debt”

Debt that the borrower cannot be required to repay because the loan, security or guarantee, or the terms and conditions attached to that loan, security or guarantee infringed the law (both national and international) or public policy, or because such terms or conditions were grossly unfair, unreasonable, unconscionable or otherwise objectionable, or because the conditions attached to the loan, security or guarantee included policy prescriptions that violate national laws or human rights standards, or because the loan, security or guarantee was not used for the benefit of the population or the debt was converted from private (commercial) to public debt under pressure to bailout creditors.

“Illegal debt”

Debt in respect of which proper legal procedures (including those relating to authority to sign loans or approval of loans, securities or guarantees by the representative branch or branches of Government of the borrower State) were not followed, or which involved clear misconduct by the lender (including bribery, coercion and undue influence), as well as debt contracted in violation of domestic and international law or had conditions attached thereto that contravened the law or public policy..

“Odious debt”

Debt, which the lender knew or ought to have known, was incurred in violation of democratic principles (including consent, participation, transparency and accountability), and used against the best interests of the population of the borrower State, or is unconscionable and whose effect is to deny people their fundamental civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.

“Unsustainable debt”

Debt that cannot be serviced without seriously impairing the ability or capacity of the Government of the borrower State to fulfil its basic human rights obligations, such as those relating to healthcare, education, water and sanitation and adequate housing, or to invest in public infrastructure and programmes necessary for economic and social development, or without harmful consequences for the population of the borrower State (including a deterioration in the living standards). Such debt is payable but its payment ought to be suspended in order to allow the state to fulfil its human rights commitments.


In closing, I would like to underscore three points:

First, there are historical precedents for invocation of one or more of these principles to relieve a country of the burden of repaying debts incurred in questionable circumstances. For example, after the Spanish-American War of 1898, the United States contended that neither Cuba nor the United States should be held responsible for the debt incurred by the Spanish colonial government in Cuba if it had been contracted without the consent of the Cuban people and had been not been used for their benefit. Although Spain never accepted this argument, it assumed responsibility for the Cuban debt under the Treaty of Paris signed between the United States and Spain on 10 December 1898. In the Tinoco Arbitration of 1923, the arbitrator (United States Supreme Court Chief Justice William Taft) ruled that credits knowingly extended to a country for a dictator who used the money for his personal purposes should not be recoverable. More recently, the odious debt doctrine has been invoked to support calls for debt cancellation in Rwanda, Iraq and Nigeria.


Second, the need to uphold social and economic justice is central
to all of these definitions. In this regard, it should be recalled that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaims that “[e]veryone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment … or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control” (Article 25) and that “[e]veryone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in (the) Declaration can be fully realized” (Article 28). In my view, the lack of transparency and accountability in lending and borrowing decisions makes it difficult for States to establish the conditions within which these ideals can be fully realized.


Third, the definitions employed by the Committee should be seen as an essential element of the quest for an equitable and enduring solution to the debt problem
that is consistent with the broadly accepted principle of the shared responsibility of creditors and debtors for preventing and resolving unsustainable debt situations.

Socialist Economist Dimitris Kazakis: Syriza Has No Plan B

Wednesday, 20 May 2015  By Joshua Tartakovsky, Truthout

16 September, 2012: Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras (C) press conference of 77th International Fair in the northern port city of Thessaloniki in Thessaloniki, Greece. (Photo via Shutterstock)

We live in times when national sovereignty is being eroded in favor of global capital. Syriza plans to continue with austerity and has made no serious plan B. All actions taken so far reveal that Syriza intends to continue with the austerity program and in the summer Greece will probably sign a new contract of continued austerity.

The question remains whether the people will rise against the loss of sovereignty. This interview was conducted on April 1, 2015, with Dimitris Kazakis, leader of the United Popular Front (E.PA.M). The party opposes austerity and was founded in 2011 by people who participated in anti-memorandum demonstrations in Greece. Kazakis is a socialist economist who worked in the private sector in the past.

The interview has been amended and shortened.

Joshua Tartakovsky: Do you think that the current government has some kind of plan B in mind or are they just trying their best?

Dimitris Kazakis: I don’t think they even have a plan A. In the first week after the elections, they tried some general idea, like the European Convention on debt issues. The European Union rejected it so they [the Greek government] abandoned the whole idea.

On the second level, they tried to negotiate some kind of elimination of debt, but nobody wanted it, and they did not want to go into a confrontation with the lenders, so they lost ground. Since the agreement of February 20, the Greek government abided by the rules of the loan agreement.

The agreement of February 20 had contradictions in it. It was obvious from the beginning that Greece could not satisfy both the troika and the people. Still, the fact that [Prime Minister Alexis] Tsipras brought the issue of reparations from Germany for the World War II occupation seemed to suggest that he is trying to mobilize the people.

If you see the declarations, you will find out that according to Tsipras and his government, the German reparations are not a legal issue between Germany and Greece, but an ethnical issue. The way Tsipras is pushing the German reparations issue is to close it.

But why would he bring up the question of reparations in the first place? Is Prime Minister Tsipras not seeking to effect some kind of confrontation?

Because of the people. The Greek people expected too much from the new government. And they have to put up a theater performance for the Greek people. So that the average Greek citizen can say, “Let’s wait for three or four months to see what is going on with the government,” because the government and the media say they should wait for three or four months because then people will see that there will be a confrontation in midsummer. I don’t think there will be a confrontation. In midsummer, we will see the signing of a new agreement. We are going for the worse.

Mr. Tsipras has been complaining that the Eurogroup is holding him to higher standards, not even to the standards of the new Eurogroup agreement, but to standards of the memorandum of understanding from the time of [Antonis] Samaras …

Yes. He says that. But give me an example of the propositions that the Greek government gave to the Eurogroup that are outside of the commitments that were already signed in April 2014 in the last memorandum.

What they are trying to do is to convince the people that by doing that, by fulfilling the commitments of the last policy, they are changing policy. That is nonsense.

Still, the government must know that if it continues in the same path of austerity, its political future is finished. So why would it commit suicide like that?

They will create a new government [and break up with the left flank of Syriza, JT], a national coalition government, with To Potomi, with parts of Pasok and New Democracy and with Golden Dawn, saying that there is no other way.

But Syriza must know that they won’t be voted in again if they continue with the same austerity.

Yes, but I think that they might create a special situation here in Greece in order for the people to be frightened and probably they will form a national unity or interim government like the Papademos government we had in 2012.

The actions Mr. [Yanis] Varoufakis seems to be taking in favor of remaining in the euro do not match what he describes in his book, The Global Minotaur, on the failure of capitalism. How do you explain this?

Mr. Varoufakis has a position that didn’t alter since 2011. The main position is that you can forget about Greece, because either you can have a European solution or no solution. So whatever you say or whatever you analyze, when it comes to choosing which way to go, actually he will chose – because he believes it – the European way. And there is no way inside the eurozone to find a solution, especially for Greece.

Greece could get finances through Russia or China or even the US …

Well, yes. We have more than a 324 billion euro public debt and we are paying each year around 30 billion in monetization of that debt. Who is going to give us the money? Nobody. Why would they?

“You have to start from repudiating the debt. Saying that ‘you know, you made us less than a colony.'”

For example, if you get rid of the debt and say goodbye to the euro, you can go to Russia or China and say, “Can you supplement our currency deposits for our exterior balance?” They will probably say, “OK, let’s discuss. I can give you the money; what can you give me?” But inside the eurozone, Russia and China know that they cannot provide directly to the government itself. They must negotiate through Berlin or Brussels.

How much support do you think Tsipras has within Syriza if he were to sign a new austerity memorandum?

In my opinion, Tsipras has control of around 55 percent of his own MPs.

Would they agree to the next memorandum?

That’s why they don’t want the agreement of February 20 to go through parliament. They are frightened of their own MPs voting against it.

What do you see as a possible solution to the current crisis?

In my opinion, you have to get rid of the euro and declare the repudiation of debt. You have to start from repudiating the debt. Saying that “you know, you made us less than a colony.”

But what would you do to prevent speculation against the drachma? Capital flight?

First of all, we have to implement capital controls. It’s not a big deal; in Cyprus you see how even the European Bank put in capital controls, of course in favor of the big capital in Cyprus. We can do it in favor of the Greek economy and of course in favor of the majority of the Greek people. At the same time, there will be no speculations because we need around six to eight months to import the new national currency and for the first six to eight months we will have the euro. Who is going to speculate against the euro?

But the day the drachma comes in, there will be speculation.

To speculate against the national currency, you have to find it first freely in the foreign markets. Give me one reason, for the new government and the state’s central bank, to place the new currency in the foreign markets? We are not going to support foreign speculation by selling our new national currency. We can say that after two years, there will be a meeting for stabilization and development of the Greek economy and then we will make our national currency available for purchase only by those who want to buy our currency for more than 4 billion euros.

“We can have higher wages every year when we invest in the productivity of labor, not in the price of the labor.”

That’s the good thing about implementing or having a new national currency, the freedom to choose what to do with it. That’s also the big mistake Argentina made. Repudiating 70 percent of the public debt was good. But what they didn’t think about was the currency. Change the currency. Say that you can provide your economy with a new peso. Like for example, Chavez did with the new [Venezuelan] bolivar, and stop the speculation for some time in order for your own economy to stand on its feet and develop.

In the scenario you put fourth, how would you revive the economy? What would be the engine for growth? Tourism? New infrastructure?

You can have special production spheres. We need to have around 30 to 35 percent of GDP in industry and agriculture. Right now, both are less than 16 percent of the GDP. Through industry and agriculture we can have the best performance for the benefit of our economy. We can provide the people with stable employment and growing wages. We can have higher wages every year when we invest in the productivity of labor, not in the price of the labor. The two are very different. You can have a competitive economy without having to perform austerity measures against the working people.

Can the Greek industries compete globally? Also, if Greece defaults, it would not be able to trade its agricultural products with Europe because there would probably be sanctions.

Right now, more than 60 percent of the agricultural production of Greece is traded outside the European Union. We are losing every year about 5 to 10 percent from commerce inside the eurozone. So actually, right now we don’t care about losing trade in the eurozone.

The motivation and the main force of our economic proposal is to improve the wages of the working people. If they have enough money, they can buy what they want and provide for the development of the economy. At the same time, the economy will provide them with more leisure time through the development of productivity. By giving leisure time, people can get involved in political activism and get involved in running the country.

Do you think that there will be a popular uprising in June or July?

We are working on a particular side of action, that’s all I can say.

No one knows the future, but with the way things are going now, what do you see developing this year?

Either we will lose our statehood and become the first state under international law and in the international community that gave up its statehood, or a revolution. No middle ground.

Would you say that capitalism is in crisis globally and that it may have a few more decades to go, perhaps even less, or would you say that what we are seeing around the world are local problems?

No. It’s a world situation. We have what economists call the absolute surplus of capital that cannot go into the economy so they are searching in a destructive mode to provide for more profit. And that’s why the whole system is becoming more barbaric. What we have today is a capitalistic feudalism, and instead of the old lord, we have the lord of money, the banker.

We are seeing more and more Western democracies turning into police states in various places.

Not even a police state, because a police state needs to be first of all a state, an organized state. That is the opposite of what the capitalist elite want. If you have an organized country, it’s bad for them, because they cannot take over easily. So they want to destroy the state and its sovereignty.

But it seems that the world is definitely moving in that direction of barbarism and feudalism you describe, so is there any way to fight that?

The Greek people have to make the first move. And that is to decide to fight for their own country. And of course, you start from the basics. The global system denies even the natural rights of the French Enlightenment. We do not see bourgeois forces fighting alongside the people, because the middle class actually is dissolving under the regime of the bankers.

“The best solidarity one can have with the Greek people is to fight against your own government.”

Now people can have a new type of state based on democracy that all the philosophers discussed. It’s something that is quite practical and it’s something that can be implemented in a record time, because of the technology and the possibilities of communication we have. That’s why the most important action to take now is to fight for national sovereignty and democracy.

What’s the role of international solidarity in the case of Greece? Does it even make a difference?

The best solidarity one can have with the Greek people is to fight against your own government. Because every time we have a popular movement gaining something against the global system and the local oligarchy, it’s a very big help even for the Greek people. Then the average Greek citizen can say, “If they can do it, I can do it too and even better.”
