This is a timely, immensely readable, and highly critical history of the CIA, culminating with the most recent catastrophic failures in Iraq." -MARK BOWDEN, author of BLACK HAWK DOWN F or the last sixty years, the CIA has managed to maintain a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, burying its blunders in top secret archives. Its mission was to know the world. When it did not succeed, it set out to change the world. Its failures have handed us, in the words of President Eisenhower, "a legacy of ashes." Now Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tim Weiner offers the first definitive history of the CIA-and everything is on the record. Legacy of Ashes is based on more than 50,000 documents, primarily from the archives of the CIA itself, and hundreds of interviews with CIA veterans, including ten directors of central intelligence. It takes the CIA from its creation after World War II, through its battles in the cold war and the war on terror, to its near-collapse after 9/11....

Facebook, Twitter stocked with ex-FBI, CIA officials in key posts

WASHINGTON — Dozens of former national security officials have gone to work for Facebook and Twitter after leaving government service, raising concerns about the influence of their onetime agencies over the social media giants.

At Twitter alone, at least eight former FBI agents work at the company’s so-called “trust” and “security” divisions — including its product policy manager Greg Anderson, who previously worked on “psychological operations” at the National Security Council, The Post has learned. Another is Matthew Williams, the company’s co-lead of its Trust and Safety department who spent more that 15 years in intelligence with the agency.

The discovery of the DC-to-Silicon Valley pipeline comes amid an outcry over revelations that the FBI influenced Twitter to suppress The Post’s account over its reporting on Hunter Biden’s overseas business interests in October 2020 and has regularly demanded specific accounts and tweets be banned.

Multiple releases of internal company documents since Dec. 2 show Twitter developed a close working relationship with the intelligence community, which frequently leaned on them to censor political speech.

Still another is Facebook senior strategist for “creator equity and well-being” Corey Ponder, who describes in his LinkedIn profile how he spent more than six years at the CIA — the majority of which was spent as a “senior targeting analyst.”

That job entails identifying and assessing “vulnerabilities and technology trends, uniting technical operations and development activities to collect intelligence against our nation’s threats,” according to a CIA hiring website.

Other former CIA employees include Bryan Weisbard, Meta’s director of privacy strategy and operations; Kris Rose, a member of its governance point-person on its oversight board project from March 2020 to October 2021; and Hagan Barnett, a former CIA contractor who leads “harmful content operations” at Meta, according to LinkedIn.

It’s not just Meta’s policy makers who have intelligence ties; some of their top tech people do as well.

Cameron Harris, Meta’s “workflow risk project manager,” previously spent four years as a CIA analyst. On Thursday, he posted on LinkedIn Thursday that he was “honored” to be featured in articles exposing former intelligence operatives that work for social media entities now.

“If only my high school civics teacher … could see me now!” he wrote.

Mike Torrey spent more than eight years with the CIA as a senior analyst “leading analysis and efforts to counter cyber threats,” before joining Meta in September 2018 as a security engineer investigator.

And in March 2022, Amarpreet Ghuman joined Meta to work in “product integrity” and “elections” after six year as a FBI analyst.

“With this many former intelligence people, it’s like Big Tech are basically just becoming … extensions of the intelligence community,” said Bill Ottman, founder and CEO of the social media platform Minds. “It’s just not appropriate.”

According to Ottman, while a single job candidate’s past government work would not preclude him from hiring the person, the apparent trend of hiring shadowy former government figures troubles him.

“If some former intelligence official came to try to work for us, I would probably just say no, just because why is it even worth the risk?” he said. “Why would I want to worry about some sort of back channel happening?

“Not every former intelligence employee is going to continue a relationship with the CIA after they’ve left, but you just don’t know.”

Having swaths of senior social media employees with ties to federal intelligence agencies risks not only free speech, but also privacy and potentially national security, Ottman argued.

“On Twitter, for instance, all the [direct messages] are open to all of the moderators,” he said. “There’s heads of state that DM on Twitter, politicians DM on Twitter. To have some random social media employee have access to that or potentially the intelligence community have direct access to that is also a huge issue.”

What The James Wood Royal Commission Hid '

Eyes Wide Open 2019 by Fiona Barnett

Royal Commission Hid
My contact with multiple victims over five years enabled me to piece together the sealed contents of the Wood Royal Commission files. James Wood buried evidence of a CIA child trafficking operation where children were recruited for a human compromise racket and as MK-ULTRA experiments. Subjects were obtained through MK-ULTRA institutions including Hillsong Church and Daruk government boys’ home where they were subjected to ritual abuse and mind control. Daruk and Hillsong children were prostituted to venues like Club Costello boy brothel in Kellett Street, Kings Cross, frequented by prominent politicians, judges, police, entertainers and businessmen. Multiple victims of the Wood Royal Commission era pedophile network that Senator Heffernan referenced, named the following perpetrators:
Gough Whitlam (ALP Prime Minister, my pedophile rapist).
- Bob Hawke (ALP Prime Minister, my pedophile rapist).
- Kim Beazley Snr (ALP Minister, my pedophile rapist). - John Kerr (ALP appointed Governor General, my pedophile rapist).
- Bob Carr (ALP politician who campaigned to lower the age of consent).
- Marcus Einfeld (Federal judge. Found guilty of perverting the course of justice. Defended pedophile entertainer Don Lane on marijuana charge. Defended my pedophile rapist Lionel Murphy against corruption charges).
- David Yeldham (Judge who suicided after Franca Arena named him in Parliament as a pedophile, sparking the Wood Royal Commission).
John Marsden (President NSW Law Society, President NSW Council for Civil Liberties, member NSW Police Board. My father’s lawyer. Ivan Milat’s lawyer. Named in Parliament as a pedophile).
- Roger Rogerson (Police detective who protected Sydney’s underbelly including Club Costello boy brothel. Escaped drug trafficking and murder convictions on appeal, before a subsequent murder conviction stuck in 2014).
- Frank Arkell (Wollongong Mayor ritually murdered after being named in Parliament).
- Kerry Packer (Media mogul. Roger Rogerson shot 12-year-old Dean Henry, son of Kings Cross prostitute, as he fled being raped by Packer).
- Frank Houston (Hillsong Church founder, serial pedophile, child trafficker).
- Graham Kennedy (TV star).
- Don Lane (TV star).
- Bert Newton (TV star).
- Stuart Wagstaff (TV star)
In 2018 Bert Newton made a bizarre reference to the pedophile antics of his TV star buddies Graham Kennedy and Don Lane during his TV Logie Awards speech:
Graham Kennedy was always the sort of man who nurtured young talent. He enjoyed giving young people a chance on television, he was a great mentor, he mentored a lot of young people.
You knew if you went to his dressing room it was locked, he will be inside doing some mentoring. Don Lane was a mentor too. He did a hell of a lot of mentoring.
Engadine BoysTown & Daruk
Daruk government boys’ home was used to procure kids for child sex trafficking Club Costello boy brothel. Tim Roy’s father, who sex trafficked his own sons to members of Sydney’s entertainment industry, worked at Daruk 
At age 13, Stephen Masters was thrown into Daruk government boys’ home where he was subjected to ECT (electrocution). Stephen publicly declared Daruk was a CIA research facility where boys were subjected to MK-ULTRA experiments involving circumcision, biochemical exposure, drugging, and electrocution.
Stephen said boys (notably a child surnamed Rogan) were murdered by hanging and their deaths recorded as ‘suicide’ or ‘absconded.’ Victims’ bodies were disposed of in the coal furnace that heated Daruk. Stephen Masters believes Medical Officer John Munger headed the MK-ULTRA research conducted on Daruk boys. The Australian government is protecting the identity and whereabouts of John Munger who is not listed with the low-level Daruk perpetrators due to be prosecuted in early 2020. Police informed Stephen Masters that John Munger served in the Australian Navy, yet no photo is available of him. Daruk staff occupied a house on the street corner directly outside the Daruk entrance; Stephen believes this was where the MK-ULTRA records were safely stored off-site.
Stephen Master’s was incarcerated in Daruk with Les Murphy who, with four others including John Travers, was imprisoned for the 1986 ritual rape and murder of 26-year-old nurse Anita Coby. I say ‘ritual’ because I heard unpublished details of Anita’s murder from two unrelated sources who viewed Les Murphy’s file, the lawyer husband of my high school friend, and a prison guard I bunked with during my parole officer training in Sydney. The latter vomited when she read Murphy’s file detailing how he and his accomplices had sex with deep cuts they made in Anita’s body.
Serial killer Ivan Milat’s victims were found chopped up and scattered over a wide area of bushland, which indicates satanic ritual. I surmise that Milat was the fall guy for a group cult effort. Stephen Masters reported two encounters with Ivan Milat to police. The first involved Milat offering 15-year-old Stephen and his inebriated teenage mate a lift. Milat detoured to Club Costello boy brothel in Kings Cross where Stephen recognised 16- year-old Les Murphy working behind the bar. Stephen deduced Ivan Milat drugged and raped his young mate in Milat’s car that evening, and that that Milat had a system of scouting and collecting child victims, drugging them in preparation for rape by pedophiles at Club Costello, before disposing of their bodies afterwards.
Both Ivan Milat and John Travers (Anita Coby’s killer) spent time in Engadine’s BoysTown juvenile detention facility, where my father and I were subjected to years of ritual abuse. Australians question where the likes of Milat, Murphy and Travers got the idea to murder people the way they did. Such behaviour is not innate - it was taught by Luciferian pedophiles who ran Engadine BoysTown and Daruk. We will never know how many murders Milat and Murphy committed separately or together. The unsolved 1965 Wanda beach murders where two 15-year-old girls violently stabbed and slashed at Cronulla carried all the hallmarks of Ivan Milat.
Milat, Marsden & Murphy
John Marsden was Ivan Milat’s lawyer. In 1971, Marsden secured Ivan Milat bail for rape and armed robbery charges and helped him flee to New Zealand. Australian authorities allowed Milat to leave the country knowing he was on bail for serious offences. I wonder how many NZ victims Milat sourced, abducted and killed for the NZ VIP pedophile network I heard about from NZ victims and witnesses. When Milat returned to Australia in 1974, John Marsden had him acquitted of the rape and armed robbery charges. Milat was never charged for breaching his bail conditions by leaving Australia. My father knew the Milat brothers who told him they were never caught for a series of bank robberies during which they routinely raped young female bank tellers.
Daruk resident Ray Leary was sex trafficked to Club Costello boy brothel where he was raped by John Marsden.90 Ray Leary also witnessed Les Murphy working behind the bar at Club Costello, and said John Marsden used Les Murphy, whom Marsden frequently visited in prison, to threaten him. Indeed, a judge found John Marsden used Les Murphy to persuade a witness to change his position. John Marsden escaped conviction for pedophilia, yet the NSW Victims Compensation Tribunal awarded compensation to one of his victims.
John Marsden came out as gay after Deidre Grusovin used parliamentary privilege to name him as a pedophile. Pedophile Prime Minister Gough Whitlam attended John Marsden’s funeral, while accused pedophile Justice Michael Kirby delivered Marsden’s eulogy.
Age of Consent Bill
James Wood did not recommend any action against the accused VIP pedophiles. instead, he recommended lowering the age of consent so men could legally have sex with teenagers. Premiere Bob Carr subsequently introduced his NSW Age of Consent Bill in 2003. The leftist media labelled any opposition to Carr’s Bill ‘homophobia.’ When an MP who voted against the Bill used parliamentary privilege to threaten naming a senior MP accused of raping a 15-year-old boy, Premier Bob Carr referred the matter to the Police Integrity Commission headed by James Wood

The worst thing about being an inspiration is that you have to be perfect. - Anne McDonald Eyes
 Wide Open is not a biography as such, and descriptive dialogue is limited. Consider it more a reference book designed to meet three distinct aims: 
1. Provide the relevant historical basis for understanding the existence and coverup of CIA child trafficking, ritual abuse, and mind control. 
2. Document my personal experience of this abuse in Australia and the USA. 
 3. Offer information for combating the techniques which cults, the military and intelligence agencies use to artificially induce dissociation and achieve radical and strategic behaviour modification. I explain the nature of Trauma-Based Forced Dissociation including the victim selection process, why most therapy is ineffective, and why a Trauma-Focused Integration approach is essential.
 My testimony is scaffolded by the extraordinary research of Steve McMurray who assembled the jigsaw of faces, places, and relationships I recalled and relayed. Steve’s work features mainly in the chapter MK-ULTRA in Australia. This book would not exist, and my integration would not have been as thorough, without Steve’s research efforts. 
The following publications provide a preliminary understanding of ritual abuse and mind control, which my book builds upon:
 - Secret Don’t Tell: The Encyclopedia of Hypnotism (1998) by Carla Emery.
 - How the Illuminati Create an Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave (2008) and Bloodlines of the Illuminati (1998) by Fritz Springmeier and his wife ‘Cisco Wheeler.’ 
- A Nation Betrayed: Secret Cold War Experiments Performed on Our Children and Other Innocent People (2002) by Carol Rutz. - The Greenbaum Speech (1992-3) conference presentation by Dr Corydon Hammond. The Bible suggests we may know them by their fruits.
 That is, we recognise the wolves in sheep skins by the consequences of their words and behaviour. Be they arrogant academic or bottom-feeding troll, anyone who attempts to discredit the above writings is certainly an operative for the trafficking network. Similarly, whoever attacks my book has a vested interest in the lucrative international child trafficking operation coordinated by the CIA. 
This electronic version of Eyes Wide Open is being distributed at no cost because the truth and healing ought to be free. Victims have paid enough. The public is welcome to download, distribute and host complete copies of this book version online for therapeutic purposes. Flooding the internet with multiple copies combats the increasing censorship and stops the child traffickers burying this information again.

FaceBook and Mark Zuckerberg Controlled By The CIA

"" Australia, Kevin Rudd’s former campaign manager Bruce Hawker wrote that News Corp is “easily the most powerful political force in Australia, bigger than the major parties or the combined weight of the unions … I saw how, on a daily basis, the storm of negative stories that emanated from News Corp papers blew our campaign off course.”

In the UK, Murdoch’s tabloids were at one time the most feared political force in the country. This is partly due to their concentration – they are national tabloids, not city-based – and also their supreme nastiness. The former director general of the BBC John Birt once met a government minister who was physically shaking at the prospect of an imminent meeting with Murdoch.

“I have never met Mr Murdoch,” the former Tony Blair communications deputy Lance Price wrote for The Guardian, “but at times when I worked at Downing Street he seemed like the 24th member of the cabinet. His voice was rarely heard … but his presence was always felt. No big decision could ever be made inside No 10 without taking account of the likely reaction of three men – Gordon Brown, John Prescott and Rupert Murdoch.”

 NAMBLA & Arthur C. Clarke  
  British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke co-wrote the screenplay for the 1968 predictive programming film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. In 1961, Julian Huxley’s UNESCO awarded Clarke the Kalinga Prize for popularising science. Clarke is famously quoted as saying, ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’ More significantly, Arthur C. Clarke was a gay pedophile who pioneered the Sri Lankan child sex tourism industry. The British Royals knighted Clarke just days after Sunday Mirror journalist Graham Johnson revealed Clarke admitted to having solicited young boys for sex. When Clarke subsequently denied this admission, the Sunday Mirror produced Clarke’s taped admission plus a secret document naming Clarke as a pedophile known to members of the NAMBLA (North American Boy Lovers Association) pedophile network.  
  US detectives, who arrested leaders of the [NAMBLA] association 10 years ago, say Clarke was named by other pedophiles they quizzed during an FBI investigation. The perverts had set up children's homes in Thailand as fronts for their sick activities.
One of its leaders was Jonathan Tampico, 48, a top nuclear scientist who worked for the American Government. He served two-and-a- half years in jail for molesting a boy of 12 and is now on the run with a million-dollar warrant on his head for further porn offences. He told detectives he had stayed at Clarke's home in Colombo and had swapped letters with the author. Another known pedophile, former church minister John Wakefield Cummings, 56, is serving a 24-years-to-life sentence after admitting molesting 17 boys in his care. He told police in Sacremento, California, that Clarke had been contacted at his Sri Lankan home by a pedophile who was on the run from the American authorities. In a sworn statement made to an investigator for Sacremento's district attorney…Wakefield Cummings told how the pervert fled to Sri Lanka where he was able to contact the pedophile community through Clarke. He then fled from Sri Lanka to Indonesia. Detectives contacted a child welfare group to warn them about Clarke's activities.
Arthur C. Clarke said in the notorious interview: ‘I am all in favour of efforts to stop [pedophilia]. But how do we stop it without interfering with the rights of responsible adults. I think most of the damage comes from the fuss made by hysterical parents afterwards. If the kids don't mind, fair enough.’ 
  In recent years Clarke's name has been linked with two notorious pedophiles, one of whom - a Swiss millionaire - was kicked out of Sri Lanka on the orders of the president for abusing impoverished beach boys. He is now awaiting trial in Zurich accused of sexually abusing up to 1,500 young boys and like Clarke was friends with a lot of Sri Lanka's top politicians, senior policemen and influential government figures. Clarke is said to have attended parties at the tycoon's home. When asked if he had, Clarke replied: ‘I may well have done. I mean the very first man I met here in 1954 was a pedophile and made no bones about it. He was in intelligence in the army, a fantastic guy.’ 58
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch stopped his UK newspaper News of the World from breaking the story that Arthur C. Clarke was a pedophile because he was friends with the pedophile. 59
Former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd is more indicative of how these tiger rides usually end. He was so poorly treated by Murdoch’s Australian newspapers that in a recent interview with The Saturday Paper he called News Corp a “cancer” on democracy and suggested it should be the subject of a royal commission. “They go after people who have the audacity to raise a question about their behaviour,” Rudd said. He added, “It’s one of the reasons I’m speaking out directly, so that people can have a normal national conversation rather than a continued national embarrassed silence about this.”
Quotes of the Month
“What happened to Kennedy is nearly what happened to me. America is in danger of upheavals. But you'll see. All of them together will observe the law of silence. They will close ranks. They'll do everything to stifle the scandal. They will throw Noah's cloak over these shameful deeds. In order to not lose face in front of the whole world. In order to not risk unleashing riots in the United States. In order to preserve the union and to avoid a new civil war. In order to not ask themselves questions. They don't want to know. They don't want to find out. They won't allow themselves to find out."

Meet the ex-CIA agents deciding Facebook’s content policy

By Alan MacLeod (Posted Jul 14, 2022)

Originally published: MintPress News  on July 12, 2022 (more by MintPress News)  | 

It is an uncomfortable job for anyone trying to draw the line between “harmful content and protecting freedom of speech. It’s a balance”, Aaron says. In this official Facebook video, Aaron identifies himself as the manager of “the team that writes the rules for Facebook”, determining “what is acceptable and what is not.” Thus, he and his team effectively decide what content the platform’s 2.9 billion active users see and what they don’t see.

Aaron is being interviewed in a bright warehouse-turned-studio. He is wearing a purple sweater and blue jeans. He comes across as a very likable, smiley person. It is not an easy job, of course, but someone has to make those calls. “Transparency is incredibly important in the work that I do,” he says.

Aaron is CIA. Or at least he was until July 2019, when he left his job as a senior analytic manager at the agency to become senior product policy manager for misinformation at Meta, the company that owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. In his 15-year career, Aaron Berman rose to become a highly influential part of the CIA. For years, he prepared and edited the president of the United States’ daily brief, “wr[iting] and overs[eeing] intelligence analysis to enable the President and senior U.S. officials to make decisions on the most critical national security issues,” especially on “the impact of influence operations on social movements, security, and democracy,” his LinkedIn profile reads. None of this is mentioned in the Facebook video.

Berman’s case is far from unique, however. Studying Meta’s reports, as well as employment websites and databases, MintPress has found that Facebook has recruited dozens of individuals from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), as well as many more from other agencies like the FBI and Department of Defense (DoD). These hires are primarily in highly politically sensitive sectors such as trust, security and content moderation, to the point where some might feel it becomes difficult to see where the U.S. national security state ends and Facebook begins.

In previous investigations, this author has detailed how TikTok is flooded with NATO officials, how former FBI agents abound at Twitter, and how Reddit is led by a former war planner for the NATO think tank, the Atlantic Council. But the sheer scale of infiltration of Facebook blows these away. Facebook, in short, is utterly swarming with spooks.


In a political sense, trust, safety and misinformation are the most sensitive parts of Meta’s operation. It is here where decisions about what content is allowed, what will be promoted and who or what will be suppressed are made. These decisions affect what news and information billions of people across the world see every day. Therefore, those in charge of the algorithms hold far more power and influence over the public sphere than even editors at the largest news outlets.

There are a number of other ex-CIA agents working in these fields. Deborah Berman, for example, spent 10 years as a data and intelligence analyst at the CIA before recently being brought on as a trust and safety project manager for Meta. Little is known about what she did at the agency, but her pre-agency publications indicate she was a specialist on Syria.

Between 2006 and 2010, Bryan Weisbard was a CIA intelligence officer, his job entailing, in his own words, leading “global teams to conduct counter-terrorism and digital cyber investigations,” and “Identif[ying] online social media misinformation propaganda and covert influence campaigns”. Directly after that, he became a diplomat (underlining how close the line is between those two professions), and is currently a director of trust and safety, security and data privacy for Meta.

Meanwhile, the LinkedIn profile of Cameron Harris–a CIA analyst until 2019–notes that he is now a Meta trust and safety project manager.

Individuals from other state institutions abound as well. Emily Vacher was an FBI employee between 2001 and 2011, rising to the rank of supervisory special agent. From there she was headhunted by Facebook/Meta, and is now a director of trust and safety. Between 2010 and 2020, Mike Bradow worked for USAID, eventually becoming deputy director of policy for the organization. USAID is a U.S. government-funded influence organization which has bankrolled or stage managed multiple regime change operations abroad, including in Venezuela in 2002, Cuba in 2021, and ongoing attempts in Nicaragua. Since 2020, Meta has employed Bradow as a misinformation policy manager.

Others have similar pasts. Neil Potts, a former intelligence officer with the U.S. Marine Corps, is vice president of trust and safety at Facebook. In 2020, Sherif Kamal left his job as a program manager at the Pentagon to take up the post of Meta trust and safety program manager.

Joey Chan currently holds the same trust and safety post as Kamal. Until last year, Chan was a U.S. Army officer commanding a company of over 100 troops in the Asia Pacific region.

None of this is to say that any of those named are not conscientious, that they are bad people or bad at their job. Vacher, for example, helped design Facebook’s amber alert program, notifying people to missing children in their area. But hiring so many ex-U.S. state officials to run Facebook’s most politically sensitive operations raises troubling questions about the company’s impartiality and its proximity to government power. Meta is so full of national security state agents that at some point, it almost becomes more difficult to find individuals in trust and safety who were not formerly agents of the state.

Despite its efforts to brand itself as a progressive, “woke” organization, the Central Intelligence Agency remains deeply controversial. It has been charged with overthrowing or attempting to overthrow numerous foreign governments (some of them democratically elected), helping prominent Nazis escape punishment after World War Two, funnelling large quantities of drugs and weapons around the world, penetrating domestic media outlets, routinely spreading false information and operating a global network of “black sites” where prisoners are repeatedly tortured. Therefore, critics argue that putting operatives from this organization in control of our news feeds is deeply inappropriate.

One of these critics is Elizabeth Murray, who, in 2010, retired from a 27-year career at the CIA and other U.S. intelligence organizations. “This is insidious,” Murray told MintPress, adding,

I see it as part of the gradual and sinister migration of ambitious young professionals originally trained (with CIA’s virtually unlimited, U.S.-taxpayer funded pot of resources) to surveil and target ‘the bad guys’ during the so-called Global War on Terror of the post-9-11 era.

MintPress also contacted Facebook/Meta for comment but has not received a response.


Some may ask what the big fuss is. There is a limited pool of individuals with the necessary skills and experience in these new tech and cybersecurity fields, and many of them come from government institutions. Casinos, after all, regularly hire card sharks to protect themselves. But there is little evidence that this is a poacher-turned-gamekeeper scenario; Facebook is certainly not hiring whistleblowers. The problem is not that these individuals are incompetant. The problem is that having so many former CIA employees running the world’s most important information and news platform is only one small step removed from the agency itself deciding what you see and what we do not see online–and all with essentially no public oversight.

In this sense, this arrangement constitutes the best of both worlds for Washington. They can exert significant influence over global news and information flows but maintain some veneer of plausible deniability. The U.S. government does not need to directly tell Facebook what policies to enact. This is because the people in decision-making positions are inordinately those who rose through the ranks of the national security state beforehand, meaning their outlooks match those of Washington’s. And if Facebook does not play ball, quiet threats about regulation or breaking up the company’s enormous monopoly can also achieve the desired outcomes.

Again, this article is not claiming that any of the named individuals are nefarious actors, or even that they are anything but model employees. This is a structural problem. Put another way, if Facebook were hiring dozens of managers from Russian intelligence agencies like the FSB or GRU, everybody would recognize the inherent dangers. It should be little different when it hires individuals from the CIA, an organization responsible for some of the worst crimes of the modern era.


Facebook has also hired a plethora of ex-national security state officers to run its intelligence and online security operations. Until 2013, Scott Stern was a targeting officer at the CIA, rising to become chief of targeting. In this role, he helped select the targets for U.S. drone strikes across South and West Asia. Today, however, as a senior manager of risk intelligence for Meta, “misinformation” and “malicious actors” are his targets. Hopefully he is more accurate at Facebook than at the CIA, where the government’s own internal assessments show that at least 90% of Afghans killed in drone strikes were innocent civilians.

Other former CIA men at Facebook include Mike Torrey, who left his job as a senior analyst at the agency to become Meta’s technical lead of detection, investigations and disruptions of complex information operations threats, and former CIA contractor Hagan Barnett, who is now head of harmful content operations at the Silicon Valley giant.

Meta’s intelligence and online security team includes individuals from virtually every government agency imaginable. In 2015, Department of Defense intelligence officer Suzanna Morrow left her post to become director of global security intelligence for Meta. The FBI is represented by threat investigations manager Ellen Nixon and head of cyber espionage investigations Mike Dvilyanski. Facebook’s influence operations policy manager Olga Belogolova had stints at the State Department and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Before Meta, David Agranovich and Nathaniel Gleicher both worked for the National Security Council. Agranovich is director of global threat disruption at Facebook while Gleicher is head of security policy. Hayley Chang, director and associate general counsel for cybersecurity and investigations, worked formerly for both the FBI and Department of Homeland Security. And Meta’s global head of interaction operations, David Hansell, was once an Air Force and Defense Intelligence Agency man.

One of Meta’s most outwardly-facing employees is its global threat intelligence lead for influence operations, Ben Nimmo, a character MintPress has covered before. Between 2011 and 2014, he served as NATO’s press officer, moving the next year to the Institute for Statecraft, a U.K. government-funded propaganda operation aimed at spreading misleading information about enemies of the British state. He was also a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, NATO’s semi-official think tank.

Perhaps then, it is not surprising that Facebook never seems to find U.S. government influence operations online–they are part of one!


MintPress has found former representatives of the U.S. national security state in virtually every politically sensitive department at Facebook. This includes even higher levels. Between 2020 and 2021, Kris Rose was a member of Meta’s governance oversight board–the group responsible for the overall direction of the platform. He left his job at the Director of National Intelligence as the president’s daily brief writer to take up the role. Before that, he had spent six years at the CIA as a political and counterterrorism analyst. Meanwhile, Gina Kim Sumilas, Facebook’s director and associate general counsel for the Asia Pacific region, spent nearly twelve years in the CIA before moving into the tech private sector.

There is also considerable overlap with the U.S. government in the company’s front facing staff. Kadia Koroma, for instance, was plucked from her position as an FBI spokesperson in January 2020 to become media relations manager at Facebook. Jeffrey Gelman, policy communications manager for Facebook’s oversight board, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and held influential roles in both the State Department and the National Security Council. And executive communications spokesman Kevin Lewis spent many years in the White House as President Obama’s spokesperson.

Meta’s vice president of legal strategy is Rachel Carlson Lieber, who went straight from the CIA into Facebook. Her first role at the Silicon Valley giant was as head of the North America regulatory and strategic response, a department that continues to feature a number of former state officials. This includes head of strategic programs, Robert Flaim, who spent more than twenty years as an FBI, and Erin Clancy, who left a 16-year career at the State Department to become a manager of strategic response policy.

Clancy’s official work centered around U.S. policy in the Middle East. Her own bio boasts that she worked on the U.S. sanctions regime placed on Iraq and Sudan. She also worked at the U.S. Embassy in Damascus at the time of the Arab Spring and the beginning of the Syrian Civil War. It is known that she also coordinated closely with the White Helmets, a controversial aid organization that some have alleged is far too close to Al-Qaeda and its affiliates. Even after her Facebook appointment, Clancy moonlighted as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and as a fellow at the Atlantic Council, the hawkish body that serves as NATO’s brain trust.

Why are these national security state officials so attractive to Meta? One reason, Murray explained, is financial. “By snagging a CIA employee a company can save a considerable sum,” she said, explaining that, “The individual has likely undergone extensive professional training (at taxpayer expense) and probably has a security clearance,” something that is difficult, expensive and time-consuming to obtain in private sector work. Therefore, companies dealing with matters of state secrecy (such as defense contractors) have historically courted both current and former officers to fill their ranks, enticing them with much higher salaries than they can receive in government service.

“What is new (or at least newly known to us!) is that now these professionals are being sought after by social media companies like Facebook, Google and others who are now heavily into monitoring, surveilling, and censoring content, and then sharing data about users with U.S. government entities,” Murray added.

Such is the need for these individuals in these fields that private companies often hire former national security agents to do the recruiting for them. For instance, John Papp, who spent 12 years at the CIA as a senior intelligence officer and 4 years as an imagery analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency, went on to work as a recruiter for many of the largest defense contractors in Washington. These included Booz Allen Hamilton, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, IBM and Lockheed Martin. Today, he works as a recruiter for Meta.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Meta also employs former spooks for their internal security operations. The company’s vice president, chief security officer is Nick Lovrien, a former counterterrorism operations officer at the CIA, while its head of insider protection is ex-CIA operational psychologist and “undercover officer” Nicole Alford.

Meanwhile, Meta’s director of global security governance–the individual reportedly responsible for the personal safety of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg–is Jill Leavens Jones. Jones left her job as a U.S. Secret Service special agent to take the appointment. And director of global security operations Alexander Carrillo continued on as a lieutenant commander in the Coast Guard for several months after his appointment at Facebook. The company also hires former feds to work directly with law enforcement on legal issues. One example of this is former FBI special agent Brian Kelley.


45 years ago, legendary journalist Carl Bernstein released an investigation documenting how the CIA had managed to infiltrate U.S. and global media. The CIA had placed hundreds of agents into newsrooms and had convinced hundreds more reporters to collaborate with them. These included individuals at some of the most influential outlets, including The New York Times. The CIA needed to do this clandestinely because any attempt to do so openly would harm the effectiveness of the operation and provoke stiff public resistance. But by 2015, there was barely a murmur of disapproval when Reuters announced that it was hiring 33-year veteran CIA manager and director Dawn Scalici as a global director, even when the company announced that her primary responsibility was to “advanc[e] Thomson Reuters’ ability to meet the disparate needs of the U.S. government.”

Facebook, however, is vastly more influential than the New York Times or Reuters, reaching billions of people daily. In that sense, it stands to reason that it would be a prime target of any intelligence organization. It has become so big and ubiquitous that many consider it a de facto public commons and believe it should no longer be treated as a private company. Considering who is making many of the decisions on the platform, that distinction between public and private entities is even more blurry than many presume.

Zuckerberg Ends Controversial Grants to Election Offices

Facebook Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the House Financial Services Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington on Oct. 23, 2019. (NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP via Getty Images)
Facebook Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the House Financial Services Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington on Oct. 23, 2019. 

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who in the 2020 election cycle flooded election offices across the United States with hundreds of millions of dollars in grants, won’t be participating in such grantmaking this year, according to a spokesman.

Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, made $419.5 million in donations to nonprofits—“Zuckerbucks” or “Zuckbucks,” as some have called the money—$350 million of which went to the “Safe Elections” Project of the left-wing Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL). The other $69.5 million went to the Center for Election Innovation and Research. The CTCL reportedly distributed grants to upward of 2,500 election offices.

Zuckerberg spokesman Ben LaBolt, who was previously spokesman for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, said the donations were a one-time deal.

“As Mark and Priscilla made clear previously, their election infrastructure donation to help ensure that Americans could vote during the height of the pandemic was a one-time donation given the unprecedented nature of the crisis,” LaBolt told The New York Times on April 12. “They have no plans to repeat that donation.”

The money was supposed to be used to buy personal protective equipment and new ballot-counting equipment, train poll workers, and expand mail-in voting.

But critics have a less charitable take on what happened. They say the Zuckerbergs helped buy the presidency for presidential candidate Joe Biden by improperly influencing election officials and artificially driving up turnout in Democrat, but not Republican, strongholds across the nation.

Author J.D. Vance, who’s seeking the Republican nod for the Ohio U.S. Senate seat, said on April 12 on the campaign trail that he believed the 2020 presidential election was stolen through fraud. Illegal ballot harvesting and Zuckerberg putting money into Democratic turnout in battleground states were also key in the election, he said.

The donations spawned a series of lawsuits across the country. For example, last month, the Thomas More Society filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Elections Commission claiming that Milwaukee officials were involved in an election bribery scheme for accepting election-assistance money from CTCL, as The Epoch Times reported.

Grants to election administrators created “a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently depending on whether they lived in Democrat or Republican strongholds,” Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, wrote in a report in late 2020.

“This privatization of elections undermines the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), which requires state election plans to be submitted to federal officials and approved, and requires respect for equal protection by making all resources available equally to all voters,” Kline wrote.

Several states, including Florida, subsequently banned private donations to election offices.

In May 2021, Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, signed the state’s new election integrity law, which, in addition to prohibiting the use of private funds to administer elections, also banned ballot harvesting and mass mailing of ballots, and strengthened voter identification requirements.

“Florida took action this legislative session to increase transparency and strengthen the security of our elections,” DeSantis said at the time, as The Epoch Times reported. “Floridians can rest assured that our state will remain a leader in ballot integrity. Elections should be free and fair, and these changes will ensure this continues to be the case in the Sunshine State.”

Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) President J. Christian Adams, a former U.S. Justice Department civil rights attorney whose group frequently files election integrity lawsuits, said at the time that the Zuckerbergs’ money had a huge influence on the 2020 elections.

“Zuckbucks were the biggest factor, juicing blue areas in 2020,” Adams said around the time Florida cracked down on private money being used in election administration.

“A private citizen should not be allowed to influence how our elections are run. At the Public Interest Legal Foundation, we are proud to have played a role in ensuring that this money will not be spent to influence the Florida elections in 2022.”

CTCL Executive Director Tiana Epps-Johnson said earlier this week that her group is launching a new five-year, $80 million program called the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence to assist election offices across the United States.

Bolt said the Zuckerbergs won’t be involved in the new project.

 It is a clear violation of the First Amendment - Twitter users shocked after Mark Zuckerberg reveals details about FBI interference with Facebook on Joe Rogan's podcast By Rafael Bandayrel Modified Aug 26, 2022


Netizens on Twitter were shocked after Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Joe Rogan that Facebook limited visibility of the controversial Hunter Biden laptop story.

The founder of Facebook admitted the matter during an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience. According to Zuckerberg, his company did so due to a request from the FBI to restrict election misinformation:

"We took a different path than Twitter. Basically, the background here is that the FBI, I think, basically came to us... some folks on our team. [They said], 'Hey, just so you know, you should be on high alert, we thought there was a lot of Russian propaganda during the 2016 election. We have noticed that basically, there's about to be some kind of that's similar to that. So just be vigilant.'"

BREAKING: Mark Zuckerberg tells Joe Rogan that Facebook algorithmically censored the Hunter Biden laptop story for 7 days based on a general request from the FBI to restrict election misinformation.

Twitter page Minds shared the clip, prompting a slew of responses from social media users. Meta quickly responded by pointing out that Zuckerberg didn't necessarily drop a bombshell as he had made the same statement before the Senate in 2020.

Meta Newsroom
@minds None of this is new. Mark testified before the Senate nearly two years ago that in the lead up to the 2020 election, the FBI warned about the threat of foreign hack and leak operations:…

Nonetheless, those who heard about the issue for the first time had their minds blown.

Many believe that under-reporting Hunter's scandalous story is considered election interference. Hunter's father, Joe Biden, of course, ran and won the presidency during the 2020 US elections.

@minds @TimRunsHisMouth If hiding the Hunter Biden laptop story or even “decreasing its distribution” at the behest of the FBI wasn’t election interference I don’t know what is. These criminals always project. #FBICorruption

@minds This is a bombshell. If the government asks a private institution to censor it is a clear violation of the 1A
However, there are also those who are in the camp that Zuckerberg's statements were nothing too important. The group raised several points to squash the notion that the FBI deliberately tried to protect Biden.
@minds Zuckerberg said the “distribution was decreased” not censored. Also the FBI informed Facebook to be on “high alert” about the coming info and did not “request” FB to “restrict election information”—that’s not in the video. Your spin is disingenuous.
@minds Who cares what Hunter did. He wasn’t a special advisor to the president and didn’t get $2 billion from the Saudis while working in the administration. What was that $2 billion Jared got from them?
@minds So…does anyone understand that Hunter wasn’t running for office? By these responses, I think not.

@LibertyTemen @minds You really couldn’t follow that clip? No wonder Dr. Rogan is able to trick so many of you.
@LibertyTemen @minds Hahaha really? Facebook got weaponized by Russia and Cambridge Analytica to trick y’all into voting for trump. The man said stop election MISINFORMATION. This isn’t a bombshell at all, it’s another TRUMPed up nothingburger.
@LibertyTemen @minds The FBI is not the government, it's merely a branch of it. Plus they didn't force facebook to censor it, they just asked they take precaution in thr distribution of this information until a 3rd party fact checker proved it

Joe Rogan points out how anyone can abuse Mark Zuckerberg's Meta smart glasses

Early in their conversation, Joe Rogan spoke to Mark Zuckerberg about the current state of virtual reality and the technological innovations that Meta is currently working on.

The Meta CEO then spoke about his company's collaboration with Ray-Ban to produce smart glasses, a product that comes with a voice-activated camera and microphone. The device allows users to take photos or videos while being discreet.

The UFC commentator then challenged Zuckerberg on whether Meta's smart glasses could potentially violate privacy. The Meta CEO responded by saying, "I guess, in theory." However, Zuckerberg pushed back and said the glasses came with a blinking indicator to alert people that a smart glass user was filming.

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg (/ˈzʌkərbɜːrɡ/; born May 14, 1984) is an American business magnate, internet entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is known for co-founding the social media website Facebook and its parent company Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook, Inc.), of which he is the chairman, chief executive officer, and controlling shareholder.

Mark Zuckerberg - Wikipedia

Zuckerberg attended Harvard University, where he launched Facebook in February 2004 with his roommates Eduardo SaverinAndrew McCollumDustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes. Originally launched to select college campuses, the site expanded rapidly and eventually beyond colleges, reaching one billion users by 2012. Zuckerberg took the company public in May 2012 with majority shares. In 2007, at age 23, he became the world's youngest self-made billionaire. He has used his funds to organize multiple philanthropic endeavors, including the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

Since 2008, Time magazine has named Zuckerberg among the 100 most influential people in the world as a part of its Person of the Year award, which he was recognized with in 2010.  In December 2016, Zuckerberg was ranked tenth on Forbes list of The World's Most Powerful People. In the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans in 2022 he was ranked 11th with a wealth of $57.7 billion, down from his status as the third richest American in 2021 with a net worth of $134.5 billion. As of late December 2022, Zuckerberg's net worth was $42.4 billion according to the Forbes Real Time Billionaires making him the 26th richest person in the world. A film about Zuckerberg's career, The Social Network, was released in 2010.

Zuckerberg's prominence in the technology industry has prompted political and legal attention. The founding of Facebook involved Zuckerberg in multiple lawsuits regarding the creation and ownership of the website. In 2013, he co-founded the pro-immigration lobbying group On April 10 and 11, 2018, Zuckerberg testified before the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation regarding the usage of personal data by Facebook in relation to the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data breach.

Software development

Early years: Zuckerberg began using computers and writing software in middle school. In high school, he built a program that allowed all the computers between his house and his father's dental office to communicate with each other. During Zuckerberg's high-school years, he worked to build a music player called the Synapse Media Player. The device used machine learning to learn the user's listening habits, which was posted to Slashdot and received a rating of 3 out of 5 from PC Magazine. A New Yorker profile said of Zuckerberg: "some kids played computer games. Mark created them."

Ordo Templi Orientis228
Emma Hardinge Britten and Aleister Crowley helped found Thelema and the OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis, aka, Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, Order of the Temple of the East, Order of Oriental Templars).
 The Ordo Templi Orientis was established in 1895, in part as a Western interpretation of certain Oriental occult teachings, and in part as a restoration of a tradition which had been largely forgotten in the West. Its original members were Freemasons, and in 1902 the authority of a Masonic Rite was conferred upon them for the establishment of a Grand Lodge in Berlin within which the Grades of the O.T.O. would be worked.
The Founders of that Grand Lodge were Carl Kellner, Franz Hartmann and Heinrich Klein. The Grand Lodge was formally constituted on January 22nd, 1906, and this constitution was revised on January 22nd, 1917. National Grand Lodges were established for Germany (including Germany, Austria and Switzerland), and later for France (1908), the Slavonic Countries (1912) and Great Britain (1912).
Amongst the eminent figures who were, at one time, associated with the work of the Order were Gerard Encausse (‘Papus’), Dr Rudolf Steiner, and Dr R.W. Felkin. Following the death of the first Outer Head of the Order. Carl Kellner, in 1905, Theodor Reuss became the second Outer Head. During his period in office there was a rapid, and not altogether properly administered, expansion in the Order. It was Reuss who, in 1911, admitted Aleister Crowley to the Order and, in 1912, appointed him head of the Order for Great Britain. Crowley effectively took over the pre-existing traditions of the Order and shaped them to suit his own interests...
Crowley revised and rewrote the rituals of the Order, and his work attracted considerable notoriety. It is from the Crowleyan version of the Order that virtually all modern claimants to the title, tradition or working of the Order come, and to which virtually all who write about the Order refer.
Huxley’s 1960s Counterculture
Through the Hofjuden, the British Royals assassinated or deposed every world leader who threatened their agenda. President Lincoln ruined Britain’s slave cotton trade which was pivotal to their opium trade; President Kennedy threatened to destroy the Hofjuden owned CIA and Federal Reserve; President Nixon directed his ‘War on Drugs’ at the Hofjuden banks; and PM Gough Whitlam established the investigation into Australia’s intelligence agencies (First Hope Commission, 1974 - 1977), threatened to out the CIA agents in Australia, and refused to renew the CIA’s lease on Pine Gap.
 Ref: 228 Gregory Tillett, History of the OTO, Wentworth Building, University of Sydney
The Rothschild family and their New York Jewish banking cousins, the Lehmans, established themselves in the USA via the pre-Civil War cotton and slave trade. These families supported Britain’s successful efforts to recapture the USA which they lost during the Confederate War, via the drug/rock counterculture. Counterculture literally meant ‘anti-culture’ - the intentional destruction of the existing Judeo-Christian culture and replacing it with Luciferian culture. British Intelligence officer Aldous Huxley coordinated the 1960s drug-rock counterculture including the introduction of psychedelics to the USA.
Aldous Huxley moved to the USA in 1937 and remained there for WW2. Aldous and pedophile Christopher Isherwood were employed as Hollywood script writers for Warner Brothers, MGM, and Walt Disney studios. During the late 1930s to 1940s, Huxley and Isherwood laid the foundation for the 1960s drug-rock counterculture by recruiting people into the Isis Cults that Huxley’s mentors (Bulwer-Lytton, Blavatsky, and Crowley) had formed while stationed in India. Huxley founded multiple Isis Cults in southern California and the San Francisco area, while Isherwood translated and propagated ancient Zen Buddhist documents that inspired Zen-mystical cults.
The 1960s counterculture was a complete resurrection of the Isis and Dionysian cults. The MK-ULTRA puppeteers rebranded the Isis Cross as the famous peace symbol of the 60s counterculture.
The 1960s hippies played Dionysian Cult instruments including ‘Pan’ pipes, tambourines and skin drums. The Rite of Isis incantations, drum beating, dances, repetitive movements (like throwing the head back), and hallucinatory substances including mescal and hashish, created the dissociative trance state combined with hallucinations considered to be the visitation of the gods (spiritual possession). Hippies thought they were ‘becoming one’ with the goddess Mother Earth. Ancient cult drugs were sacred and their knowledge, preparation and gathering were secret. The Isis drug and dance ritual were reproduced at 60s CIA events like Woodstock. The sex orgies of the Isis Cult became the ‘free love’ hippie orgies of the ‘sexual revolution.’ Both involved liberation from civilization's rules and constraints and featured a return to primordial nature Mother Earth and animalistic sexual behaviour. The ancient cults featured sex with animals. In 1952, Aldous Huxley accompanied his family doctor, Humphrey Osmond, to the USA. Huxley recruited Osmond to conduct research for CIA Director Allen Dulles’ MK-ULTRA covert LSD experiment. Osmond wrote Schizophrenia: A New Approach in which he said mescaline (used in ancient Egyptian and Indian pagan rituals) produced a psychotic state identical in all clinical respects to schizophrenia, and so experimentation with hallucinogenic drugs may be key to developing a cure. In his book ‘The Doors of Perception’ Huxley claimed hallucinogenic drugs ‘expand consciousness.’ In California, Huxley recruited to MK-ULTRA individuals who were initially attracted to the Isis Cults he founded during his previous USA visit, including Alan Watts and anthropologist Gregory Bateson (Margaret Mead’s husband). Watts became a nationwide Zen Buddhist cult guru who founded the Pacifica Foundation, a CIA cut-out which sponsored two radio stations used to introduce the ‘Liverpool Sound’ to the USA, namely Rolling Stones, Animals, and The Beatles, followed by ‘acid rock’ and fascist ‘punk rock.’ The Beatles, who featured Aleister Crowley on their album cover, took copious drugs and consulted their Indian guru, and so recruited a generation of youth to Huxley’s Dionysiac counterculture.
Gregory Bateson became the director of a MK-ULTRA LSD experiment at Palo Alto VA Hospital in which patients were brainwashed into becoming ‘psychedelic’ Isis Cult hippies. One patient, Ken Kesey, completed One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest three years after he was subjected to Bateson’s LSD experiments. Kesey then assembled a group who administered LSD to unsuspecting victims lured to the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco via Scott McKenzie’s counterculture song, ‘San Francisco.’ Huxley and Bateson established a ‘free clinic’ in the area to treat the subsequent addicts. This clinic paralleled a project at the Tavistock Institute, the psychological warfare agency for British Secret Intelligence.
In 1960, Aldous Huxley gathered a Harvard LSD team comprised of Humphrey Osmond, Alan Watts, Timothy Leary, and Richard Alpert. Timothy Leary wrote The Psychedelic Experience based on the Ancient Tibetan Book of the Dead, to promote LSD as ‘consciousness expanding.’
Aldous Huxley founding the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, in 1962 via Stanford graduates Michael Murphy and Dick Price, to explore what Aldous called ‘human potentialities’ (i.e., human consciousness). Esalen became headquarters of Huxley’s counterculture movement, and led the New Age movement, Humanistic Psychology, and Gestalt Psychotherapy. Esalen teachers included Aldous Huxley, Arnold Toynbee, Timothy Leary, Carl Rogers, B.F. Skinner, Joan Baez, Ken Kesey, John C. Lilly, Rollo May, Abraham Maslow, Erik Erikson, and Deepak Chopra. Fritz Perls was an Esalen resident scholar for five years. In its early days, the Esalen facility was guarded by a gun-wielding Hunter S. Thompson who belonged to a child pornography ring linked to Bohemian Grove during the 1980. Thompson was offered $100,000 to make child porn snuff films during Luciferian rituals at Bohemian Grove.229
CIA Cult Cut-Outs
The CIA began using cult cut-outs to conceal their MK-ULTRA mind control activities, from 1963 onwards. The CIA started new cults or infiltrated existing cults as part of their Occultism in High Places project. 230 The CIA developed numerous cults during the 1960s hippie movement centred in California. The CIA’s use of cults for social control experimentation resulted in famous group murders and mass suicides.
K-ULTRA in Australia
…it was fun, fun, fun. Where else could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill, cheat, steal, rape, and pillage with the sanction and blessing of the All-Highest? - Capt. George H. White
The CIA coined the term ‘conspiracy theory’ to discredit whistle-blowers like me. Project MK-ULTRA is conspiracy fact. Irrefutable evidence of its existence sits in the US Library of Congress in a document titled:
Project MKULTRA, the CIA‘s Program of Research in Behavioral Modification, Joint Hearing Before the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee on Human Resources United States Senate Ninety-Fifth Congress First Session, August 3, 1977.
According to this document, MK-ULTRA was an umbrella project for CIA-funded subprojects conducted in respected government and private institutions. Experiments conducted at universities, hospitals, prisons, and research facilities used drugs, hypnosis, electric shock, psychology, psychiatry, radiation, harassment substances, and paramilitary devices and materials, to manipulate human behaviour.
The committee hearing was a whitewash. MK-ULTRA was far more sinister than the public were told. The following facts remain hidden from public understanding:
 • Doctors and scientists, including the pioneers of psychology and psychiatry, routinely tortured, raped, and murdered children whom the CIA kidnapped and trafficked for Project MK-ULTRA.
• In the early 1970s, Australia became the main child recruitment location after Project MK-ULTRA’s US operation was publicly exposed.
• The Australian and US military and Intelligence services collaborated to train Australian DELTA child soldiers for special operations.
Evidence MK-ULTRA used Children Evidence that MK-ULTRA doctors experimented on children is sparse. Here are three documented cases:
1. Robbers Cave Experiment In 1953, Muzafer Sherif (a suspected Communist) conducted his initial MK-ULTRA experiment at Middle Grove in upstate New York, with Rockefeller Foundation funding.234 Sherif recruited underprivileged 11-year-old boys from poor families with offers of a free summer camp. He deceived the parents and did not inform them or their children they were being used as subjects for a psychological experiment. The aim of the experiment was to demonstrate that people could be taught to hate, and friends could become enemies. Sherif’s theory that we are shaped by the group that were members of and if you change the way groups operate you can alter the way people feel and behave. If you change the way Sherif pitted two peaceful groups of children against each other and used sabotage and provocation to incite the boys to turn on each other. His first experiment failed. His second, successful experiment was conducted in 1954 at Robbers Cave in Oklahoma using boys selected based on observations of their school playground behaviour. The subjects were divided into two groups: rebellious types versus placid types who prayed. The latter group were traumatised by the unbridled behaviour of the rebellious group. The subjects were not debriefed afterwards, and some were seemingly permanently detrimentally impacted
2. Martin Orne & John Gittinger Named to Presidential Committee The Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments was established in 1994 to investigate the US government’s unethical human radiation experiments. On March 15, 1995, New Orleans trauma therapist Valerie B. Wolf and her clients, Claudia S. Mullen and Chris deNicola Ebner appeared before the Advisory Committee in Washington, D.C. to testify on the connection between the Radiation Experiments and Mind Control Experimentation on Children. Wolf submitted:
Generally, it appears that therapists across the country are finding clients who have been subjected to mind control techniques. The consistency of their stories about the purpose of the mind control and torture techniques, such as electric shock, use of hallucinogens, sensory deprivation, spinning, hypnosis, dislocation of limbs and sexual abuse is remarkable. There is almost nothing published on this aspect of mind control used with children, and these clients come from all over the country, having had no contact with each other… It needs to be made clear that people have remembered these names and events spontaneously with free recall and without the use of any memory-retrievable techniques, such as hypnosis.
Claudia S. Mullen testified:
Between the years of 1957 and 1984, I became a pawn in a government scheme whose ultimate goal was mind control and to create the ‘perfect spy’ — all through the use of chemicals, radiation, drugs, hypnosis, electric shock, isolation in tubs of water, sleep deprivation, brainwashing and verbal, physical, emotional and sexual abuse. In 1958, I was to be tested, they told me, by some important doctors coming from a place called the ‘Society’ (the Human Ecology Society). [Human Ecology Fund] …
A Dr John Gittinger tested me, and Dr [Ewan] Cameron gave me the shocks and Dr Greene the x-rays. Then, I was told by Sid Gottlieb I was ‘ripe for the big A,’ meaning ‘Artichoke.’…
The next year, I was sent to a place in Maryland called Deep Creek Cabins to learn how to ‘sexually please men.’ Also, I was taught how to coerce them into talking about themselves. It was Richard Helms (Deputy Director of the CIA), Dr Gottlieb, Captain George White and Morse Allen who all planned on filming as many high government and agency officials and heads of academic institutions and foundations as possible so later, when the funding for mind control and radiation started to dwindle, then the projects would continue — at any cost. I was to become a regular little ‘spy’ for them after that summer, eventually entrapping many unwitting men, including themselves, all with the use of a hidden camera. I was only 9 when this kind of sexual humiliation began. [Martin Orne was the only pedophile not filmed.]
Another time, I heard Dr Martin Orne, who was the Director of the Scientific Office, and later the Institute for Experimental Research, state that in order to keep more funding coming from different sources for the radiation and mind control projects, he suggested stepping up the amounts of all the ‘stressors’ used and also the blackmail portion of the experiments. He said, ‘It needed to be done faster, then get rid of the subjects, as it was asking for ‘us’ to come back and haunt them by remembering.’
3. Joseph Mengele & Ewan Cameron Killed Kids in Catholic Montreal
In 1997, Quebec Ombudsman Daniel Jacoby reported on his findings regarding the Duplessis Orphans.235 His report glossed over multiple witness accounts of orphans being subjected to MK-ULTRA atrocities. In 1944, Quebec Premiere Maurice Duplessis, President Franklin Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, MacKenzie King, and CIA Director Allen Dulles reportedly attended a Quebec Conference to finalise a secret agreement where Quebec’s Catholic Orphanage children were given to the British and US military to be used as MK-ULTRA lab rats. Approximately 22,000 orphans were automatically certified mentally ill, to qualify them as subjects for MK-ULTRA research involving electrocution, lobotomy, rape, Deep-Sleep, LSD and other drug experiments at psychiatric facilities including Ewan Cameron’s Allan Memorial Institute, Saint Michel Archange Hospital and St Jean de Dieu.

Mengele in Nazi Germany
Mengele in Saint Michel Archange Hospital 1949 Yearbook?
The 1949 Saint Michel Archange Hospital yearbook contains a photo of what may be 38-year-old Josef Mengele (who disappeared from Germany in 1948) bending down to examine a boy in a wheelchair.236 Duplessis Orphan Sylvio Albert Day recognised Joseph Mengele performing lethal experiments on children at St Jean de Dieu hospital in 1960. Concordia University’s student newspaper explains: 237
During his time in power from the mid-1930s to the late 1950s (with one break where the Liberals re-took power), Duplessis transferred power to the Church by extending their responsibilities to include operation of most social services like orphanages. This gave the Church authorization to act as a government-sponsored agency—minus any form of public accountability.
At the time, federal funding allocated $0.70 to $1.25 per day, per orphan to the church. If an orphan was mentally disabled, they received $2.50 in subsidies. This precipitated a mass scale process of proliferating ‘orphans’ and intentionally misdiagnosing them as mentally disabled to qualify for the larger subsidy
In many instances, the children recruited weren’t legitimately orphaned. Nuns and priests would travel to low-income neighborhoods throughout Quebec and Eastern US and convince parents to hand over their children, promising them a better future.
Bernard Piché, a doctor who falsely certified the orphans as mentally disabled, admitted to not examining any children in 1999. In a statement, Piché said, ‘I did it because the nuns asked me to.’
The matching testimonies of the Duplessis orphans being tortured with electro-shock therapy, forcible injections with powerful drugs and other human experimentation raises serious concern that this tragedy was part of MK Ultra—a US government program which honed torture techniques and had a known human-experimentation centre in McGill University.
Sylvio Albert Day, a Duplessis Orphan, says that one of the priests was Joseph Mengle, a former Nazi doctor during World War II. Day’s job was to transport dead bodies into unmarked graves. Some of these bodies had to be cleaned because in 1942 Quebec law allowed nuns to sell unclaimed bodies to medical schools for $10.
At St Jean de Dieu hospital, Sylvio Day transported approximately 70 dead bodies in three months. That equates to Joseph Mengele and his MK-ULTRA doctors murdering one child per workday in a single hospital. Sylvio said the children were as young as 4, their skulls often had holes drilled into them, and one had its brain removed. Bodies not sold to medical schools were placed in cardboard boxes and stacked in mass graves in the ‘pigsty’ cemetery.

Martin Orne at University of Sydney
CIA psychiatrist Martin Theodore Orne conducted MK-ULTRA Subproject 84 at the University of Sydney during a two-month lecture period in 1960. His experiment was jointly funded by the US Airforce Office of Scientific Research (grant number AF-AFOSR-88-63) and the Human Ecology Fund (HEF) under the project title Attitude Formation, Decision Matrices. 238 The HEF also financed Hans Eysenck’s Subproject 111 under the same title. Hence subprojects 84 and 111 were related and both influenced Australian operations. The HEF was a Cornell University based CIA cut-out for financing MK-ULTRA activities including Ewen Cameron’s crimes at Montreal's Allen Memorial Institute. Martin Orne’s 1960 visit was sponsored by USEFA (US Educational Foundation in Australia), the Australian body of the Fulbright Scholarship and Lectureship Program. 239 The CIA used the Fulbright program to insert their agents or contractors into MK-ULTRA subprojects. University of Sydney Psychology faculty head, Alfred Gordon Hammer, approved Subproject 84. Gordon Hammer (then APS Chair) subsequently spent two sabbaticals in Martin Orne’s Philadelphia laboratory during the 1960s and 70s.240 Leading up to Martin Orne’s visit, Gordon Hammer ran a weekly hypnosis seminar attended by University of Sydney students who became major contributors to MK-ULTRA hypnosis research: Frederick Evans, Wendy-Louise Walker, George Singer, Wendy A. Fairfax-Thorn, Jean Jones, Margaret Austin, Peter Sheehan, and Campbell Perry.241 In April 1960, four months before Martin Orne visited Sydney, George Hoben Estabrooks invited him to speak at a Colgate College symposium.242 Estabrooks, father of the Manchurian Candidate, boasted eight years later:
The key to creating an effective spy or assassin rests in splitting a man’s personality, or creating multi-personality, with the aid of hypnotism. This is not science fiction. This has and is being done. I have done it. It is child’s play now to develop a multiple personality through hypnotism. 243
Martin Orne’s presentation paper was later titled ‘Antisocial Behavior and Hypnosis.’ His experimental objective was to see if hypnotised subjects would carry out dangerous and harmful acts they normally would not. The resultant article, Social Control in the Psychological Experiment: Antisocial Behaviour & Hypnosis, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, was co-authored by Martin Orne and University of Sydney psychology student Frederick J. Evans. The abstract of the 1965 paper reads:
Rowland and Young found that hypnotized subjects were willing to carry out such apparently antisocial actions as grasping a dangerous reptile, plunging their hand into concentrated acid, and throwing the acid at an assistant.244

Theosophy Society & OTO at University of Sydney The University of Sydney has a long occultic history. In 1882, the University of Sydney founding Chancellor John Smith became Sydney’s first Theosophical Society member. John Smith was mentored by Emma Hardinge Britten who co-founded the Theosophical Society and the OTO. Smith was one of the select few to receive a letter from one of the ‘Masters’ (Morya and Koot Hoomi), Helena P. Blavatsky’s spiritual guides to establishing the Theosophical Society. Blavatsky incorporated Buddhist Shambhala mythology into her occultic society and claimed to be in contact with a Great White Lodge / Brotherhood of Himalayan ‘Masters’, a group of highly developed humans. ‘Master Morya’ is described as a man ‘living on the earth but possessed of developed senses that laughed at time and space.’ OTO members are designated a number preceded by the title of ‘Frater’ which means fraternity brother of the ‘Great White Brotherhood.’ Australia’s OTO Headquarters proudly advertised the following address - until my Candy Girl documentary was released:
Frederick Evans and Martin Orne subsequently assumed positions at the University of Pennsylvania, the USA’s major MK-ULTRA research hub. 245 Australian psychologists Peter W. Sheehan and Campbell W. Perry conducted Manchurian-candidate hypnosis experiments with this Pennsylvanian research network. Campbell Perry became a board member of the CIA’s False Memory Syndrome Foundation headed by Martin Orne.
Wendy A. Fairfax-Thorn was a student in Phil Sutcliffe’s Psychology department, studying hypnosis and multiple personality disorder with Subproject 84 psychologist Frederick J. Evans. In 1960, Wendy Thorn completed a University of Sydney thesis on posthypnotic amnesia, then presented her paper Hypnosis and Suggestibility to the ABBPS. In 1961, the ABBPS financed a post-graduate research scholarship to ANU (Australian National University) for Wendy Thorn to study the placebo effect. Her resultant 1962 ANU thesis noted: ‘This study would have also lacked a great deal without the information, advice and materials supplied by Professor H.J. Eysenck (director of MK-ULTRA Subproject 111).246 From 1963 to 1964, Wendy Thorn participated in hypnosis research with Frederick J. Evans while receiving assistance from the CIA-funded Studies in Hypnosis Project directed by Martin Orne. In 1963, Fred Evans attended Harvard on a Fulbright Scholarship to work and publish with Martin Orne. 247 Wendy Thorn later collaborated with Fred Evans and Hans Eysenck on MK-ULTRA research at Maudsley Hospital Institute of Psychiatry (IoP) in London. 248 249 Wendy Thorn and Fred Evans subsequently co-published a paper on hypnotic amnesia in 1966. 250
Phillip Sutcliffe had MK-ULTRA connections which led to Martin Orne commencing his MK-ULTRA hypnosis research at the University of Sydney. Peter Sheehan explained:
Phil had network connections with Martin Orne, and very quickly I got drawn into a very extensive program of research – that was funded in Australia – and then through the network and the associations and working with Phil Sutcliffe, I then went across to work with Martin Orne in Philadelphia.
University of Sydney: Australia’s Occult & MK-ULTRA Epicentre
During the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, most leading universities in Australia (including Sydney, Western Australia, Melbourne, and Canberra’s ANU) had staff and students in the MK-ULTRA network. The University of Sydney remained the epicentre of MK-ULTRA in Australia. My key MK-ULTRA perpetrators attended the University of Sydney. Harry Bailey graduated medicine in 1954. Leonas Petrauskas graduated with a diploma in Tropical Medicine in 1957 while Antony Kidman studied there. Kidman and Telford Conlon completed second year Chemistry together in December 1959, the same year Conlon’s future wife Patricia Anne Carden passed third year English. John Manning Ward was History professor (1948-1979) while Anne was a history major, and Rosalind Croucher studied law in the 1970s. Ward became Vice-Chancellor (1981-1990). Holsworthy anaesthetist Colonel John Overton (Antony Kidman’s next-door neighbour) graduated medicine in 1962 with heart transplant surgeon Victor Chang. Actor John Bell graduated from Sydney University in 1962. My key perpetrators belonged to multiple secret societies including the Freemasons, Jesuits, Rosicrucians, Theosophical Society, the OTO, and self-styled esoteric groups. The various organisations were intertwined. Senior Australian Freemasons are closely tied to the international heads of Rosicrucianism. The OTO incorporate Jesuit teachings.
Phil Sutcliffe was influenced by his thesis examiner Hans Eysenck who directed MK-ULTRA Subproject 111. 251 In 1959, Phil Sutcliffe received the first University of Sydney PhD for his thesis Hypnotic Behaviour: Fantasy or Simulation? His thesis examiners were Gordon Hammer, Robert W. White (Harvard), and Hans Eysenck of London’s Institute of Psychiatry which conducted CIA funded MK-ULTRA research. The examiners declared Sutcliffe’s work ‘a model for what a PhD thesis should be.’ Robert White headed Harvard’s Social Relations Department where MK-ULTRA doctors Henry A. Murray and Timothy Leary operated. After examining Phil Sutcliffe’s thesis in November 1959, Hans Eysenck applied for a CIA grant to direct MK-ULTRA Subproject 111. The CIA Chemical Branch Chief concluded, ‘Eysenck is one of the most skilful and productive psychologists on the international scene today and a grant to him would add prestige of the Society.’ 252
Peter Van Sommers. Phil Sutcliffe later connected with Peter Van Sommers, a University of Melbourne student who received a 1958 Fulbright Scholarship to become the first student in Experimental Psychology at Harvard’s Social Relations Department. 253 At Harvard, Van Sommers placed electrodes in the brains of rats to create lesions used to control their behaviour. Harvard retained Van Sommers until 1961, after his Fulbright scholarship expired, because his research was valuable to DoD projects. Van Sommers also spent time at the University of Pennsylvania which offered the world’s most cutting-edge psychology research laboratory. In the late 1960s, Van Sommers visited the Mecca of MK-ULTRA, Aldous Huxley’s Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.

The History of the OTO in Australia
The original, pre-Crowleyan Order had, however, been brought to Australia around 1908 by Vyvyan Deacon, who became the first Grand Master for the Order in Australia, having received his authority from the Outer Head, Theodor Reuss. Deacon (Frater Memnon) established the Order in Sydney and Melbourne and, during a visit to New Zealand in 1920-2l, attempted to lay the foundations of the Order there.
Between 1914, when the active work of the Order in Australia commenced, and 1930, when Deacon returned to-London, the Order attracted, and influenced, a number of eminent Australians. Notable amongst them were several involved in the arts and literature.
The Order became dormant after the departure of its Grand Master, who died in London in 1938; his archives, authorities and regalia (such of it as survived the Blitz) were entrusted to his daughter's guardianship until a successor could be appointed. Forty-four years later the guardianship was relinquished, and the authority and symbols of office were passed to Frater Memnon's successor. Frater Iacchos who, upon his appointment issued a decree, ‘Of The True Secret of The O.·.T.·.O.·.,’ in which he re-affirmed the original, pre-Crowleyan traditions and working of the Order.

The Watergate break-in was strictly based on one thing - the pedophile records that were being kept at the Democratic National Headquarters. - Detective James Rothstein (NYPD, Retired)
 In October 2016, I presented at Colin Ross’ Trauma and Dissociation conference in Seattle, USA. Following my talk, one attendee approached me in the hotel lobby where my fellow presenters sat at their merchandise stalls. ‘All this!’ she shouted while sweeping her arm across the sideshow alley of over-priced books, stickers, and fridge magnets, ‘All this is shit! You have the real stuff! Where’s your book?!’ Tears welled in her eyes. ‘Write a book! Please write a book!’ 
Yes, I have the real stuff. I am not some left-brain dominant academic pretending to understand what it is like to be a victim of the most heinous crimes. I lived it. I spent my developmental years trapped in a mind control labyrinth. I spent my adult years navigating an escape. I eventually achieved what few victims of the most extreme abuse do, integration. I may therefore declare with authority what does and does not work. 
I prefer the term ‘victim’ to ‘survivor’ because the latter implies my ordeal is over. My ordeal will likely never end. As Dr Reina Michaelson warned, ‘Fiona, I think this is a life sentence.’ Indeed, I serve a life sentence for crimes committed against me, with the full knowledge and blessing of the Australian government. I am constantly harassed by police, paid agitators, agent academics and journalists, DID sleeper cells, perpetrator relatives, sold out victims, fake advocates, professional social media trolls, Special Intelligence Operatives, and retired intelligence community thugs hired to do the dirty work of VIPs who dare not overtly attack me for fear of attracting media attention to their part in the international child trafficking operation. 
Recovery from extreme abuse begins with realising the true nature and extent of international child trafficking. In 2015, Newcastle Herald journalist Ian Kirkwood wrote favourable articles in the wake of my Sydney press conference. 1 I consequently passed to him a story regarding David Hogg, the Lifestyle Solutions founder who was later convicted of historical child sexual assault. Kirkwood worked with Joanne McCarthy whose media campaign, starring whistle-blower Peter Fox, helped spark Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse. 
 In 2012, Detective Chief Inspector Peter Fox exposed his colleagues’ coverup of a massive pedophile network in the Newcastle Catholic diocese. The NSW police hierarchy consequently physically threatened Peter Fox and demanded his doctor allow police to attend his private therapy sessions. University of Sydney law graduate Margaret Cunneen chaired a Special Commission of Inquiry into child sex abuse in Newcastle which attacked and discredited Peter Fox and journalist Joanne McCarthy. 
Cunneen had a history of supporting pedophiles. In 2009 she attended the book launch of organised crime boss Roger Rogerson and admitted she had ‘known him since he  was a detective.’2 Detective Sergeant Roger Rogerson was dismissed from the NSW Police Force in 1986, meaning Cunneen associated with him during his underbelly heyday when he oversaw the trafficking of drugs and children in Sydney, and committed multiple murders to conceal his crimes. Then in 2002, Margaret Cunneen advised Queensland Police to drop their prosecution of pedophile swim coach Scott Volkers on the grounds: (a) one victim’s sexual assault was too ‘trivial’ to prosecute; (b) 12-year-old female victims were unlikely to have developed breasts and thus allegations Volkers groped them would be difficult to substantiate; and (c) 12-year-old girls could not relax enough to experience orgasm while being abused.3 
Firstly, Cunneen’s conclusions defy biology. Secondly, my sister-in-law was Scott Volker’s assistant coach in the 1990s. Long before Volkers hit the news, I was told he assaulted his own niece whom he regularly drove to swimming practise, that his pedophilia was common knowledge to Queensland Swimming staff including Greg Lawler who caught Volkers showering naked with Olympian Samantha Riley, and that Swimming Australia was generally infested with pedophiles including National Coach Don Talbot (my first swim teacher) who was deported from Canada for impregnating a 14-year-old - prior to being appointed as Australia’s head Olympic coach. 
The federal Royal Commission into child abuse subsequently vindicated both Peter Fox plus the multiple victims of Scott Volkers who in 2018 was finally charged for the same crimes Margaret Cunneen dismissed. Cunneen was further discredited when Roger Rogerson was convicted of murder in 2014. Cunneen narrowly escaped investigation by the Independent Commission Against Corruption in 2015. 
As Chair of the Special Commission of Inquiry, Margaret Cunneen banned Peter Fox from including crucial evidence thereby prejudicing his testimony. She subjected Fox to hours and days of aggressive interrogation, and facilitated his being slandered ‘a liar,’ ‘the devil incarnate,’ ‘obsessed’ with exposing pedophile priests, and involved in a ‘conspiracy’ with Newcastle Herald journalist Joanne McCarthy who was also interrogated under cross examination. Cunneen branded Fox an ‘unreliable’ witness who acted ‘without integrity.’ I enjoyed afternoon tea with Peter Fox and witnessed the toll this took on someone victims consider a national hero. If only all NSW police were so obsessed with exposing pedophiles. 
The NSW Police Force then targeted Deputy Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas for supporting Peter Fox. Kaldas was suddenly subjected to excessive scrutiny, investigation, public discrediting and career destruction. Margaret Cunneen’s witch hunt occurred under the command of NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione who publicly supported pedophile Frank Houston, the Hillsong founder who sex trafficked kids to Kings Cross brothels in association with fellow child rapist Roger Rogerson. 
So, if the Newcastle Herald would not publish my story, I figured, no other newspaper would. I phoned Ian Kirkwood to request he investigate and publish my full story. If only one mainstream journalist published my testimony against Antony Kidman, I reasoned, it would blow the international child trafficking network wide open. 
During our call Margaret Cunneen queried whether swimmer's breasts big enough to be groped. The Sydney Morning Herald, 8 July. 6 call, Kirkwood relayed a conversation he once had with ‘a couple of spooks’ who told him that all senior politicians are pedophiles because that is how they are controlled. Kirkwood asked me if that was my story. 
‘That’s exactly right! That’s consistent with my experience.’ I tried to contain my excitement. ‘The mainstream media has long documented the CIA’s involvement in drugs and weapons trafficking, right?’ 
Kirkwood agreed, noting there had just been another story about that in the mainstream press.
 ‘Well then, is it so hard to imagine they are also involved in trafficking children which is far more lucrative than guns and drugs? ASIO and the CIA work together to traffic children between Australia and America. They’re the ones who trafficked me.’ 
The journalist promised to consider my request, bearing in mind he had a young family and publishing my story would surely place them at risk. But he never got back to me. A short time later, Ian Kirkwood developed a rare and aggressive form of cancer. I called him, expressed my condolences, and we chatted for a bit. At the end of our conversation, I mentioned I was considering writing a book. I asked him to clarify and elaborate on what he told me of his encounter with the ‘spooks.’
 ‘I never said that,’ he bluntly asserted. 
I sighed in resignation. There went my last chance at breaking into the mainstream media. There sunk years of building rapport and credibility with mainstream journalists. There went years of investigating other abuse cases and passing my findings on to television and newspapers. Years of driving journalists around the district to personally meet victims. Years of results in other cases. 
 My Gold Coast Hogtie Doctor story went international, with paediatrician Neville Davis being banned from practising medicine in Australia (although that doesn’t stop him setting up shop in Thailand). My story on Gary Willis’ 18-year child abuse spree ended with a life ban on his teaching for the NSW Education Department (although that didn’t stop him working for the Queensland Education Department). My story on Daruk government boys home forced reluctant NSW police and 60 Minutes agent journalists to conduct a mop-up investigation. I broke the Daruk story on my blog and negotiated it into the mainstream news. Sensational headlines about a victim having his penis cut off went global. Police and the media charged multiple low-level perpetrators, and 60 Minutes falsely presented the story as ‘exclusive.’ Police and media conspired to bury the crux of the Daruk story, that it was a recruitment centre for (a) boy prostitutes to service ASIO’s human compromise operation, and (b) Project MK-ULTRA lab rats. Journalists may print all sorts of child abuse information, except that which exposes the global child trafficking operation. 
I had come so close. 
My October 2015 press conference – delivered in response to Senator Bill Heffernan’s announcement that a former prime minister was a pedophile - was statistically the most popular story on the Sydney Morning Herald website that day (although the news site’s computer technicians prevented it from displaying as the most viewed article). Another of Prime Minister Bob Hawke’s sex assault victims, the daughter of Hawke’s architect Kevin Borland, agreed to address a follow-up press conference with me but pulled out last minute. The USA National Inquirer intended to run a front-page story about Antony Kidman being a pedophile, until they received a vicious legal threat from his 7 daughter Nicole Kidman. A journalist and her photographer husband flew up from Sydney to interview me for a major Australian magazine, until Nicole Kidman took a ‘Scientology approach to managing’ me. And a UK journalist travelled around the country interviewing me and two other victims of Antony Kidman for the Daily Mail, until one of the victims (whose parents were friends with Kidman) was threatened and subsequently withdrew his permission last minute. 
Nicole Kidman’s PR team shut down my mainstream media exposure by drawing on her lucrative contracts with Australia’s media outlets. So, I turned to the internet. Armed with a simple meme app and a right-brain talent for lyric writing, I launched my own social media campaign. I spent five years in front of the computer, communicating with hundreds of victims and supporters, many fake, many genuine. I hit the conspiracy theory jackpot when David Icke featured an enormous photograph of me and my story during his Australian speaking tour. 
My tactics worked. Online articles about Nicole Kidman, where the pubic was free to leave negative comments, were followed by streams of intelligent attacks on her heavily orchestrated stardom. I realised my impact when Kidman’s PR team paid the Daily Mail plus a morning television show to feature an article tellingly titled, ‘Shame on you, Australia. Stop Hating on Nicole Kidman.’4 People don’t hate Nicole Kidman as an individual. They hate what the Harvey Weinstein scandal subsequently highlighted: that Hollywood rewards something other than an ability to sing, dance or act. 
 Despite everything the pedophile network threw at me, my story still got out there, such that if you Google Antony Kidman’s name the words ‘child abuse’ soon follow. Yet no amount of alternative media success can match a complete break into mainstream news. So, I admitted defeat. I stopped posting and did not bother checking my blog sites.

Conspiracy Fact
Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. - George Orwell
In October 2002, I was in New York City, peering out a massive window of the World Finance Centre at the construction scene below. Next to me stood Eddie, the once-jolly janitor who now suffered PTSD.
‘Were you here that day?’ I asked.
‘Ma’am, I was standing right here. Something made me stop and look out this here window. I never done that before. But something made me do it. I saw a black van pull up on that, there road. And no vehicles ever stop there: you can see how busy it is. Two guys dressed in black suits and white shirts got out, fiddled with a black box in their hands. Then they got back into the van and drove off. Minutes later - BOOM! - them bombs went off. It was like watching a movie. I didn’t believe it was real. I could see people up there deciding whether, or not to jump. I been telling everyone what happened. Then the managers came to me and said, “Eddie, you gotta stop talking about this to people. People gonna think you’re crazy. You should just worry about your job.” But I said, “Why should I shut up? Why do you care about what I say?! Why don’t you care about those people that died? You should care about the people that died!” There was a childcare in that building. Full of little children! Trains full of people starved to death!’
‘Who do you think did it?’ I asked.
‘The government did it!’ Eddie punched the air, his eyes widened like a wild animal. ‘Man, our own government did it!’ ‘I believe you, Eddie. I believe you…’

Since 1976, the FBI has trained heads of Australian law enforcement organisations at their national academy in Quantico, Virginia. An expressed goal of the training is to create collaboration between international law enforcement agencies and governments. In 2006 the FBI launched a Counter-Terrorism program for Australian law enforcement officials. One graduate described the program as follows:
This place is like the temple where leaders of law enforcement come to receive their mission - don’t ever lose the magic.
Ref: 97 Jim Berger (21 May 2012). PATCON, International Security Policy Paper. New America Foundation. []
NSW Police Commissioner Anthony Raymond Lauer trained at the FBI Academy.
Tony Lauer, who became Commissioner in 1991, resigned prematurely in 1996 due to the Wood Royal Commission into NSW police corruption. Lauer succeeded Commissioner John Avery (my perpetrator). Lauer previously trained with the Australian Army at Holsworthy in 1957 and headed the Freemason Grand Lodge of NSW and ACT. Commissioner Lauer attended the FBI Academy just when the FBI instigated an infiltration program code-named PATCON (short for ‘Patriot Conspiracy’). ‘Patriot’ loosely defines antigovernment, racist, antisemitic, and/or Christian ‘extremists.’ PATCON officially ran from 1991-93 and consisted of FBI undercover agent provocateurs posing as members of a fictional extremist group, to infiltrate target Patriot groups and gather intelligence related to past, present, or future crimes. The 1991 prosecution goals included: conspiracy to commit murder, illegal possession of weapons, and money laundering. Yet no criminal convictions resulted. Instead, PATCON proved to be a training exercise for Ruby Ridge, Waco, Oklahoma, 9/11, and Australia’s Port Arthur. The operation also provided preparation for the myriad of anti-terror laws introduced to Australia post-9/11, and the subsequent establishment of ‘Fixated Persons’ police-psychiatric detainment facilities in Australia and the UK.
Fixated Persons
Victims of government child trafficking who seek justice are being labelled ‘Fixated Persons’ and targeted for detainment. NSW, Queensland, and Victoria recently constructed Fixated Threat Assessment Centres (FTAC) which are attached to Australian state police forces. These Orwellian facilities are staffed by specialist police, forensic psychiatrists, forensic psychologists, and Special Intelligence Officers (SOI). Detainees are referred to FTACs by ‘family, neighbours, counter-terrorism authorities, or local police’ and held for 14 days without legal representation or family knowledge. The FTACs detain people for crimes they may commit in the future,98 thereby violating a fundamental tenet of Western law which determines citizens are innocent until proven guilty. The perpetrators circumvent this law by never formally charging the detained citizen with a crime. Holding an individual for mental health or terror reasons is apparently legal. As in Nazi Germany, laws are not broken, merely adjusted to accommodate an underlying agenda. The people behind this Totalitarian regime define ‘Fixated Persons’ as:
- Victims of crime,
- Typically aggrieved at being wrongly done by,
- Seeking justice,
- Litigious and chronic complainers,
- Exposing government corruption or treason,
- Posting too much on social media about government officials and other public identities, - Making too many FOI and document requests, - Repeatedly lodging complaints to politicians or local council, - Having strong religious beliefs or ideology.
Ref: 98 Patrick Wright (2018). New Melbourne anti-terrorist centre criticised for being 'loopy,' 'illogical.' ABC News [Online], 28 February
The above definition is broad and vague. It fails to specify what constitutes ‘too much’ of a particular action or ‘too strong’ a belief. The concept of ‘Fixated Person’ has not been legally formalised but left for government agents to interpret, adapt, arbitrarily apply to whatever target they choose. As such, the above definition can be loosely interpreted to describe victims of government child trafficking who speak publicly about, and actively seek justice and redress for, the heinous crimes committed against us. The definition is being misused to profile victims and whistle-blowers like me. The British-based trafficking network’s primary objective is to discredit victims of their global child trafficking operation. Their agents achieve this by labelling targets psychotic, criminal or even better – criminally insane. Their traditional modus operandi was to lure targets into a ‘health assessment’ where dirty doctors labelled them non-compliant psychotics (as when Bond University psychology and criminology lecturers conspired with dirty NSW and Queensland cops in their failed attempt to frame me). This method is now superseded by a formalised kidnapping and detainment operation in three Australian states. FTACs promise to re-victimise child trafficking survivors via the same abuse methods the CIA perpetrators originally used on us.
The expressed purpose of Australia’s anti-terror laws introduced by Freemason and Satanist John Howard in 2002 was to stop Islamic terrorism. Instead, the laws are being used against citizens seeking to expose political party corruption. Let us examine who has been genuinely targeted by these FTAS teams:
- Phil Galea was kidnapped by Victorian police in August 2016, falsely charged under anti-terror laws, and is still detained in solitary confinement without trial. Politicians and police are preventing Phil from appearing before a judge and jury, which would expose the ‘Fixated Persons’ wrought.
- Fiona Wilson, a former Origin Energy executive, was involuntarily detained and injected with drugs in the Brisbane FTAC for blowing the whistle on the coal-seam gas industry. Wilson was left with PSTD.
- A grandmother who complained to authorities that her 12-year-old granddaughter was being raped and sex trafficked by her father was declared a ‘Fixated Person’ by a judge who referred her to the FTAC where she was placed under perpetual surveillance and her passport stamped to prevent her leaving Australia.
Australia’s Family Courts, child social services (renamed DOCS, FACS, etc) and foster care system have facilitated government child trafficking since their inception. The same occurs in the UK and USA. Every day for five years, desperate parents contacted me and shared the same story: the government fabricated grounds to steal, prostitute, disappear, kill their kids. The FTACs make the Australian leg of the global child trafficking operation far easier and simpler to implement and maintain. Some advice: if you discover your child is being sexually abused by your partner – take the child and disappear. Some mothers have had success by inducing the husband to physically assault them and using their resultant injuries as evidence for a domestic violence order and fleeing with the child. If Child Protective Services start sniffing around your family – run! Leave at the first hint. Forfeit all material goods, pack your kids, a loaned car, documents, cash, and some clothes, and just disappear. Tell no-one where you go. Find fake IDs and wait it out in some remote location until the kids are grown.
Australia’s foster care system is a massive child sex trafficking operation.
It is concerning that neighbours can refer victims to the FTAC, considering a common tactic is to have agents move in next door to victims and threaten and harass them. It is also concerning when the Centres are staffed by perpetrators. Further, Queensland’s Fixated Threat Assessment Centre is staffed by clinicians from the Queensland Forensic Mental Health Service, who employ Bond University forensic psychologists.
 Secret Intelligence Operatives (SIO)
The FTACs plant police informants called Secret Intelligence Operatives (SIO) to entrap victims for detainment in their tax-funded MK-ULTRA facilities. SOI agents employ the following methods:
- Pretend to be right-wing extremists.
- Stage and film fake arrests for fake terror breaches.
- Befriend and physically access targets.
- Set the target up for arrest for associating with ‘terrorists’ and engaging in ‘terror activities.’ 
Their modus operandi was demonstrated in a 2008 Melbourne case where a police agent called ‘SIO 39’ was cross examined regarding his entrapment of an Islamic terrorist cell.99 SIO 39 ‘told the court he was a Victoria Police officer working undercover with the covert unit of the security intelligence group.’ The SIO agent inserted himself into a terror cell where he taught the leader how to make a bomb. The prosecution asked SIO 39:
‘You were making a very deliberate effort to befriend him, weren't you? … Consistent with the directions you had been given?’ ‘Yes, that's right,’ said the agent.
The FTAC’s entrapment methods are classic PATCON tactics where agent provocateurs lure victims into engaging in behaviour which constitutes a breach of legislation and subjects them to search and seizure laws.
Ref: 99 Karen Kissane (2008). Planted Agent Showed How to Make Bomb. The Age, 1 May
In 2018, I was simultaneously targeted by six agents connected to Fixated Threat Assessment Centres in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. They were notably connected to NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller who held locational jurisdiction. All secret intelligence type agents base grooming conversation on real life events, to appear more convincing. Hence one SOI agent told me he trafficked drugs in Sydney for the Australian Federal Police. The agents tried to trick me into breaching Australia’s strict anti-terror laws and provide justification for police to raid my property and arrest me. Their entrapment methods included unsuccessfully encouraging me to:
- Hand them administrative control of my websites and social media pages, under the guise of improving my sites.
- Become a board member and so assume legal responsible for an agent-created and controlled child abuse advocacy group. - Excessively post about certain politicians on social media.
- Publicly incite social discord by joining the agents’ call for an ‘uprising.’
- Endorse vigilante behaviour including t-shirts labelled ‘Pedo Hunters’ which were decorated with images of a hangman noose / gun sight target.
- Provide a list of known perpetrators to be targeted for vigilante style justice (i.e., premeditated murder).
- Physically associate with agent provocateurs posing as extreme right terrorists. - Accept money and trafficked commodities from ‘terrorists’ and ‘terror activities.’
- Accept unregistered guns under the guise of protecting myself from the pedophile network.
- Provide a list of all fellow government trafficking victims I knew, including their locations and testimonies, under the guise of making a documentary.
Having studied Australian anti-terror legislation and statutory interpretation, I quickly recognised how and why the above activities list might be interpreted as breaching our vague counter-terrorism laws. Associating with known terrorists, wearing uniform outfits, accepting money from terrorists, possessing illegal weapons, and conspiring to commit murder - constitute grounds for immediate arrest and detainment.
Paul Mullen: MK-ULTRA Psychiatrist
The Australian and UK definition of ‘Fixated Person’ and the associated Fixated Research Groups and Fixated Threat Assessment Centres are the brainchild of CIA-MI6 forensic psychiatrist Paul Mullen. Here are some of Mullen’s secret service career highlights:
- Worked with MK-ULTRA Subproject 84 hypnosis doctors including Peter W. Sheehan.
- Court-appointed expert in the MK-ULTRA Chelmsford Hospital medical negligence case.
- First non-military defence expert to enter the Guantanamo Bay detention centre, site of Seligman’s CIA torture program.
- Heads the Fixated Person Research Groups linked to MI6, FBI, and Tavistock (UK’s mind control hub).
- Contracted by the British Royal Family.
- Interviewed Melbourne Hoddle Street shooter, Julian Knight.
- Assessed alleged Port Arthur shooter, Martin Bryant.
- Publicly presented the Christchurch NZ massacre script and shooter profile two weeks before the event.
- Supports false memory writings of CIA psychologist Elizabeth Loftus.
The book Dope Inc. (1978) was meticulously researched and proved beyond all doubt that the British Royal Family are the ultimate benefactors of the CIA coordinated, global drug trafficking operation. The royals are also the financial benefactors of the global child sex trafficking operation. Prince Andrew was accused of raping minors trafficked by convicted pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. One of Prince Andrew’s victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, had her photo taken with him. Recall the Royal Family were caught on film teaching princesses Elizabeth and Margaret to Nazi salute. Recall pop star Mick Jagger referred to Queen Elizabeth as ‘Chief Witch.’ 100 I witnessed the queen preside over the ritual murder of 11 kids at St James Anglican Church in Sydney City when I was 11 years old.
Port Arthur: Paul Mullen was the court-appointed psychiatrist who assessed Martin Bryant, the young man forced to change his plea to guilty and so receive 35 life sentences for the Port Arthur massacre. After a 3.5-hour interview, Mullen claimed Martin Bryant possessed an IQ of 60. It is neurologically impossible for someone whose intelligence level sits at the bottom 2% of the population to kill 19 people in 20 seconds. That head shot rate is not achievable by the world’s most elite snipers, whose intelligence level must sit in the top 1% of the population because high visual-spatial IQ is essential for accurate shooting ability.
Christchurch Shooting: Paul Mullen ‘coincidentally’ popped up at four mass shootings in Australia and New Zealand. He was working in Melbourne in 1987 where he interviewed the Hoddle Street shooter, Julian Knight. Then he moved to Aramoana in New Zealand in time for David Gray’s 1990 shooting massacre. Then he returned to Melbourne in time for the Tasmanian Government to request he interview Martin Bryant in 1996. And he just happened to be visiting New Zealand for the 2019 mass shooting in Christchurch. Two weeks prior to the Christchurch massacre, Mullens spoke at Melbourne’s Sofitel hotel where he released an exact script for what unfolded in NZ, and profiled the white, right-wing extremist type who poses the new terror threat, and which fit the alleged shooter.
False Memory Fan: Paul Mullen’s research interests include: Litigious and Chronic Complainers, and the Long-Term Impact of Childhood Sexual Abuse - the ideal combination for silencing outspoken victims of CIA child trafficking. Paul Mullen was quoted in a 1994 False Memory Syndrome Foundation newsletter as saying:101
The precedence accorded child sexual abuse has also had negative consequences, socially and scientifically, particularly in distracting attention away from physical and emotional abuse and from the whole context of disadvantage and neglect in which the sexual abuse often occurs.
Ref: 100 The Telegraph (2012). Why the Queen 'refused to hand Mick Jagger a knighthood,’ 11 July. 101 FMS Foundation Newsletter (2004). Jan/Feb, 13:1.
Not surprisingly, Paul Mullen is a child abuse denier and an advocate of Elizabeth Loftus’ discredited false memory opinion. Mullen claimed, ‘the basis of the recoveredmemory theory was flawed … there were no specific symptoms that came from childhood abuse.’102 In his book Childhood Sexual Abuse: An Evidence-Based Perspective,103 Mullen denies the phenomenon of repressed trauma memories being stored in the right implicit brain and accessible via appropriate therapy:
On the other side of the debate have been equally powerful defences of the capacity of therapists to bring to consciousness repressed memories that on occasion, it is asserted, provide detailed and veridical narratives of actual abuse… However, contrary to these claims, the main problem following trauma is an inability to forget rather than a complete loss of the memory of the event… Psychogenic amnesia following trauma may occur, but usually the individuals are well-aware of the gap in their memory.
There are claims that memories of CSA are laid down in the brain through a unique process that does not apply to other forms of trauma and that can be recovered via the sensorimotor system... This remains an unproven hypothesis…
Current theories of memory emphasize that memories are not replicas of the events themselves but imperfect and subjectively modified records of how we have experienced those events…
That it is possible to influence the memories of others by suggestion is established (Loftus, 1993) . . . Both client and therapist may believe they are overcoming the forces of repression and revealing the true narrative of the abuse, but how much the expectations, assumptions, and theoretical commitments of both participants are producing a new construction remains in question.
When a repressed memory contains a detailed image of a location the victim never visited apart from during her child abuse, and when the victim physically visits that place as an adult and discovers everything in that abuse location is exactly as the victim recalled it during a flashback or therapy – that constitutes evidence of reliable repressed child abuse memories. I experienced this in 1993 when I visited Sutherland Hospital. There is no record of my ever having been admitted or treated at Sutherland Hospital. My parents never took me there during my Sydney childhood. Yet I knew the layout of an internal ER room at Sutherland Hospital. I visited the hospital at age 23 in search of the room I awoke in after suffocating in a grave at age eight years. A triage nurse kindly led me to a room out of public bounds which looked exactly as I remembered and drew it. The walls were clad in pale blue tiles, the door and furniture were positioned exactly like in my therapy drawing, and the original oxygen bottle sat at the head of the very stainless-steel table I was laid on. ‘This is where you would have come if you had suffocated,’ the nurse told me.

Dirty Doctors
Corydon Hammond said in his legendary Greenbaum Speech:
When you start to find the same highly esoteric information in different states and different countries, from Florida to California, you start to get an idea that there’s something going on that is very large, very well coordinated, with a great deal of communication and systematic-ness to what’s happening. So, I have gone from someone kind of neutral and not knowing what to think about it all, to someone who clearly believes ritual abuse is real, and that the people who say it isn’t are either naive like people who didn’t want to believe the Holocaust - or they’re dirty.
Paul Mullen, who denies the true nature of child abuse induced trauma, who embraces the pro-pedophile writings of discredited Elizabeth Loftus, who hangs around CIA MK-ULTRA torture and mind control facilities, who leaps the Tasman sea in time for every Australasian mass shooting, and who, despite being a ‘world renown expert’ excluded irrefutable evidence that it was neurologically impossible for a mentally disabled man with an IQ of 60 to have committed the crime (thereby condemning an innocent man to life in prison) - is the main driving force behind new Orwellian legislation and protocols which are being used to effectively target and silence vocal victims and witnesses to government organised child sex trafficking.

Justice Denied
No one calls for justice; no one pleads a case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. (Isaiah 59:4)
‘Andersonian’ Legacy
We stand at the precipice of Aldous Huxley’s promised Final Revolution.
Australian law prevents freedom of speech, permits whistleblowers to be charged with defamation, and allows outspoken victims of CIA child trafficking to be labelled ‘terrorists’ and subsequently seized, detained and subjected to the same abuse we experienced as children by the same perpetrator network. Erosion of Australia’s civil liberties and Judeo-Christian culture traces back to the University of Sydney Philosophy lecturer John Anderson who (from 1927 to 1958) applied Cultural Marxism to create an enduring legacy of indoctrination which influenced future generations of politicians, journalists, and law reformers. John Anderson taught my key perpetrators, three of whom were discovered to be Soviet spies and seemingly assassinated by the British Crown.
Cultural Marxism is a non-violent but revolutionary collectivist ideology that seeks the gradual gain of power via infiltration and the modification of laws, institutions and social organisations. Western educational institutions, particularly government schools and universities, are a hub of left-brain Cultural Marxist indoctrination. Communism dominates Australia’s education system thanks to Soviet spy Alfred Conlon who created a system of standardisation and control via the Commonwealth Education Department.
I encountered militant pro-Marxist teaching in six universities, in three states, over a 30-year span. I know from experience that Marxist teachings saturate the fields of Education, Science, Psychology, Law, Philosophy, and the Visual Arts. I attended the top Art Colleges in three Australian states and found them all intolerant of independent creative thinking. Australian educators saturate developing brains with Luciferian Marxist culture - sexual promiscuity, globalisation, lawlessness, anti-nationalism, occultism, pro-abortion, pro-pedophilia, and a mocking hatred of the Biblical God.
John Anderson founded Australian Realism, the Empirical brand of philosophy which spread to the University of Adelaide and Alfred Conlon’s brainchild, the Australian National University. All three universities became infiltrated with Anderson’s Communist legacy. All three became MK-ULTRA research facilities. Anderson was aligned with the Trotsky movement and the Communist Party of Australia (renamed The Australian Greens) and he contributed to their journals. Anderson pushed the Marxist agenda including sexual revolution and abolition of religion in schools. He argued that God does not exist, traditional Christian concepts of good and evil were only meant for slaves, and the notion of morality is empty. His converts (labelled ‘Andersonians’) included members of the Sydney Push, a leftist intellectual subculture who rejected conventional morality and placed Sydney at the forefront of the sexual revolution. Promiscuous feminist Germaine Greer is a fine example.
ALP Law Reform
My ears pricked up when our law lecturer said the Australian Labor Party (ALP) were the first political group to appoint Catholic judges in our predominantly Protestant country. The ALP also appointed the two reformers most cited in Australian law schools, Lionel Murphy (my pedophile rapist) and Michael Kirby (publicly accused of pedophilia by Senator Bill Heffernan). Catholic Murphy attended Sydney Boys High selective school and commenced at the University of Sydney in 1949. Murphy was nominated as Chief Justice by Gough Whitlam (my pedophile rapist) and appointed by John Kerr (my pedophile rapist). Known for his radicalism and judicial activism, Murphy’s reforms included establishing the Law Reform Commission, and no-fault divorce which led to an epidemic of broken homes and displaced youth ripe for recruitment into child trafficking and Luciferian cults. Murphy notably authorised the 1973 raids on ASIO. Corruption allegations plagued Lionel Murphy until his death, after his 1985 conviction for perverting the course of justice.
Michael Kirby is a Fort Street Boys High graduate who commenced law at the University of Sydney in 1959. Kirby served as Vice Chancellor of Macquarie University, plus as an executive with CSIRO and the Law Reform Commission. Kirby was nominated Chief Justice by ALP Prime Minister Paul Keating (whose rape and murder of a young boy I witnessed). In 2002, Senator Heffernan used Parliamentary privilege to announce, Michael Kirby used a government car to solicit underage male prostitutes at the Army Barracks ‘Wall’ in Darlinghurst, which victims confirmed to me. In response, Kirby announced he was gay, and leftist politicians and journalists accused Bill Heffernan of ‘homophobia.’ The truth of the matter remains sealed in the Wood Royal Commission case files.
Why Study Philosophy
Philosophy is the study of how people think. An introductory knowledge of philosophy is crucial for understanding the origins of the eugenics program we know as MKULTRA, and the perpetrator mind-set. Let us quickly review the historical erosion of traditional values and insertion of Marxist doctrine via a subject every Australian law student undertakes, Philosophy and the Law. Here is my essay in that subject, which addressed the question of whether a relationship still exists between justice and the law. My essay provides an extremely simple introduction to Philosophy and its relationship to legislative and social change.
Justice Defined
The first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary104 defined justice as a quality or principle meaning morality, equity, righteousness, truth, integrity, and restitution. By contrast, the modern law student’s prescribed legal dictionary considers justice, A concept defined according to the particular philosophical school of the inquirer. 105 Western concepts of justice combine Greco-Roman philosophical traditions with Scripture.106 From Plato to postmodernists, philosophers have debated the existence of a relationship between law and justice. The resultant theories are generally divided into two camps.107 One camp associates justice with Biblical principles and absolute moral standards, emphasises individualism and equality, and produced classic common law under which Western society had a moral obligation to uphold clear rules of conduct. The opposing camp considers justice to be human-made and evolving with society’s changing mores.108 Their theories are soaked in Darwinist eugenics, ethical relativism, secular humanism, and collectivism, which successively distorted the interpretation of the word ‘justice’ until it lost its original meaning. Justice went from a tangible principle to a subjective concept shaped by political agenda, religious affiliation, and previous experience of the legal system. Australia was dominated by positivist and liberalist theories109 until feminism, poststructuralism, and ecological approaches took influence.110 Traditional liberalist concepts of individuality, formal equality, and property ownership were devalued. Now, fluctuating cultural conventions determine what values inform the legal system in our increasingly permissive society. Research indicates six-month-old babies possess an innate sense of justice.111 While the average citizen might hope and trust that our legal system is synonymous with what they innately sense justice to be – it is not. Practical examples of this confront us daily, from anti-terror laws that breach international human rights standards,112 to unfathomably lenient sentencing for men who rape young children.113 Personal experience drives home the reality that justice is nothing more than the excrement of Orwellian newspeak, a mythical, abstract ideal that law students write essays about, and promise to preserve in the forefront of their minds while earning $500 per hour at their inner-city law firms. Only those who have yet to experience injustice can afford to pontificate about an actual relationship between law and a concept that can no longer even be defined, let alone exacted.

Ancient Concepts of Justice
Plato (428-348 BC) believed justice stems from social order.114 He proposed private citizens forgo individuality and personal rights for a state controlled by a gifted minority who regulate everything from sex to moral thinking.115 Plato’s ideal society was modeled on Sparta,116 aligns with modern totalitarianism, and inspired Hitler’s Third Reich. 117 By contrast, Aristotle (384-322 BC) believed in natural justice.118 He saw justice as: transcending local customs and conventions, determined by divine reason, and inherently connected to law. 119 Aristotle believed a just society stems from allowing citizens to enjoy the private property they worked for, and that property redistribution is unjust. Yet the Greeks ignored Aristotle’s notion of natural rights for citizens,120 and women, children, slaves, and non-citizens possessed no rights at all.121 The Ancient Romans viewed justice as protecting citizen rights only.122 They preserved equality of rights between citizens via commutative justice.123 Commutative justice is precise and accurate, since the offending action, perpetrator, and victim are easily identifiable to all. Their concept of justice, which encouraged freedom and responsibility, passed to English law.

Siedentop124 argues that a moral revolution occurred in the 1st Century after the New Testament writings introduced the notion that everyone has God-given rights. This revolution inspired Medieval Christian philosophers and canon lawyers to promote individual freedom and moral equality. These men, and not the secular humanist philosophers of the Renaissance or Enlightenment, formed the foundations of Western liberal democracy.125 Biblical Christianity considers justice, freedom and law inseparable. Hayes126 observed:
Wherever Christian ideals have been generally accepted and their practice sincerely attempted, there is a dynamic liberty; and wherever Christianity has been ignored or rejected, persecuted or chained to the state, there is tyranny.
This statement makes no sense if 1st Century Christianity, an individual belief system with no formal organization, is equated with tyrannical collectivist religious organizations like the Roman Catholic Church. Roman Catholicism started with Emperor Constantine I (306-337) who retained his title of pontifex maximus pope, and rebranded Roman paganism as ‘Christianity’ and superimposed Christian motifs over Roman cult practices and festivals (Christmas and Easter) in honor of sun worship and the goddess Ishtar.127 Dog excrement by any other name still stinks, and the same organization that fed Christians to lions continued persecuting Christians via a series of Crusades and Inquisitions.128 The Protestant Reformation was a protest of orthodox Bible-reading Christians against the satanic Roman Catholic papal system. The uninformed confuse Protestantism with Catholicism and wrongly group them under the one label of ‘Christian.’ Because organizations like the Catholic Church committed heinous acts of injustice, people used this to justify condemning the orthodox Christian values that informed our Western legal system.

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) introduced distributive justice theory,129 a vague and indeterminate form of justice which, if violated, leaves no identifiable offence or perpetrator. Aquinas was an Italian priest and apologist for the Catholic Church. Accordingly, he viewed the pope as supreme law giver and laws inconsistent with Catholic doctrine as invalid. Aquinas replaced Augustine’s (354-430) idea that unjust laws are not laws, with the notion that unjust laws should be tolerated for practical reasons130 (i.e., submission to the Roman Catholic pope.
Common Law
The common law system is based on Judeo-Christian principles.131 Edward Coke (1552–1634) believed God gave humans an innate understanding of the law. Therefore, justice manifested in a judge’s ability to correctly discover and apply Biblical law. Just laws were based on, and did not contradict, individual rights and free choice. When Coke said, ‘The King himself should be under no man, but under God and the Law,’ 132 he referred to the Rule of Law whereby everyone is bound by fixed and predictable rules. Without objective law, individuals are at the government’s mercy. The alternative is the rule of man, which results in tyranny.133 Common law offers basic protective measures including the right to silence and presumption of innocence.
William Blackstone’s (1723-1780) Commentary on the Laws of England influenced common law adoption by English speaking countries, plus the USA Declaration of Independence and Constitution. 134 Blackstone traced English common law to King Alfred’s Scripture-based legal system.135 While the 10 Commandments formed a moral premise that was easy for the public to know, Blackstone made the common law further accessible to lay people.136 He also promoted inalienable rights.137 Blackstone said England’s Bill of Rights declared three immunities: private property, personal security and individual freedom,138 and that the common law ‘…gives liberty, rightly understood, that is protection to a Jew, a Turk, or a heathen, as well as those that profess the true religion of Christ’.139
Atheism undermines the notion of a higher moral law. It encourages relativism - the denial of absolute truth and moral code. Without absolutes, morality is determined by social norms and individual discretion, and people have no sense of moral obligation or duty. Atheist Claude Helvetius (1715-1771) heavily influenced Bentham and Marx.140 He believed humans are a product of their environment and culture. Helvetius said the meaning of life is attaining earthly happiness for the greatest number, not salvation. Helvetius advocated selflove, and valued actions by their public utilitarian use.141

The notion of a higher moral law dominated Western society until Charles Galton Darwin (1809–1882) introduced, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life in 1859. Darwinism was a proeugenics political movement that assumed God does not exist and humans are evolving animals. The Darwinian concept of law and justice stems from man’s will that evolves over time with changing social values and conventions. Darwinism influenced Maxism and Nazism.142 It also influenced secular humanism which similarly assumes only nature and the material world exist, and humans are evolving toward perfection (i.e., ‘mechanised’). These theories dismiss natural law and an absolute moral code. They base morality on the changing nature of human interaction.
Darwinism influenced positivism. In Pure Theory of Law (1939) Hans Kelsen (1881- 1973) said, ‘The changeover of legal science from natural law to positivism went hand in hand with the progress of empirical natural sciences and with a critical analysis of religious ideology’.143 Positivist Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) rejected God and natural law, and declared law a product of human will and reason, force and social struggle.144 These theorists believed laws are logically formulated by the state to suit society’s evolving needs. That Positivists consider law manmade,145 separates law and morality. Positivists consider law just if it benefits the population majority.146 So, justice fluctuates according to the whims and preferences of the state. Its arbitrary nature renders a Positivist legal system susceptible to tyranny.
Positivist John Austin (1790-1859) aimed to transform law into a science by purging it of all moralistic notions. He asserted that law is the command of ‘a sovereign who requires full obedience’ 147 - which sounds pretty much like a tyrant. Hart (1907-1992) concluded that Austin’s theory in effect posed a sovereign threat.148
Positivism ignores individual rights, natural justice, and outcome fairness.149 Owing to Positivism, our courts are more concerned with rules and exacting procedural justice, rather than the law’s ethical implications.150
Positivism fails to make the common law distinction between natural wrongs that everyone wants criminalised (like murder) and behaviours that the government prohibits but which the public generally accept, such as defending one’s family against a violent intruder; a prime example being the Batterham case 151 which also contradicted the common law allowance of proportionate use of force against a perpetrator.

Social Contract
Social contract theorists tried to reconcile Christianity with Darwinism. They defined a ‘social contract’ as an agreement people made in the state of nature before society existed. According to this philosophy, the public sacrifice freedom for social order and stateadministered justice. Philosophers have different ideas about the state’s role in this social contract. Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) advocated for absolutism - the absolute right of the state to control the individual.152 Hobbes’ collectivism was a precursor of modern totalitarianism.153 Hobbes diverted focus from natural law which encouraged altruism, to a sense of entitlement. Unlike Blackstone and Locke, Hobbes was not considered influential in his day, and he made no significant contribution to the legal system. He was rejected by both major parties of his day154 and Oxford University burnt his writings.155
As a social contract theorist, John Locke (1632–1704) considered the consequences of when a government fails to uphold their contractual obligation.156 He believed people had rights to life, health, liberty, and property in the state of nature.157 Locke believed these rights stemmed from God-given natural laws that people could easily recognise using their God-given reason. As the father of liberalism, Locke’s support for inalienable, individual rights inspired the 1776 American Declaration of Independence, 1789 Bill of Rights, and 1793 French Declaration on Human and Citizens' Rights. 158 Locke’s ideals are reflected in the legal system via notions of presumption of innocence, procedural fairness, a fair trial, and nondiscrimination.159
Unlike Hobbes and Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) claimed life in the state of nature was good.160 He inspired Romanticism, an emotive philosophy that promoted a return to the alleged ‘bliss’ of a pre-civil society. Leftist collectivist ideology originated with Rousseau who claimed rights which existed in the state of nature are relinquished to the state-created general will. 161 Rousseau damned civil society for permitting private interest which, he claimed, exploits others and detracts from the general will.
Charles Darwin's philosophy was previously suggested by others including Immanuel Kant (1724–1804).162 Kant agreed with Hobbes and Rousseau that humans chose to surrender their rights to the state when they created the state.163 He said a government has no duty to its citizens, but that: ‘It is the duty of the people to bear any abuse of the supreme power, even though it should be considered unbearable.’ 164 Kant based his deontological (duty-based) approach to morality on human reason.165 He claimed that although humans are intrinsically altruistic,166 a society containing no moral absolutes produces people motivated by selfishness instead of altruism.

Darwin, Rousseau, and Kant inspired Carl Marx (1818-1883).167 Marx rejected Christianity, natural law, private property, individual rights, separation of powers, and the Rule of Law.168 He viewed law as a tool for political power and based it on the working class’ collective will. Marxism promotes lawlessness via contempt for existing social order and encouraging the working class to violently revolt against government.169 Marx believed the need for law dissolves once communism is established.
Marx was anti-Semitic.170 Not surprisingly, every application of Marxism has resulted in totalitarianism, deification of a dictator, human rights violations, inequality before the law, and the equal distribution of poverty.171 This is reflected in mass killings of over 100 million people by Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. Thus, Marxist law has proven to be the antithesis of justice.
Radical Multiculturalism
Marxism influenced contemporary theories including radical feminism, critical legal studies, and race legal theory. These theories agree that reality is socially constructed to create and maintain power. 172 They consider talk of justice, universal truth, and objective knowledge as white patriarchal attempts to gain political power over minority groups.173 Such theories view law as a socially constructed tool for political gain. 174 They are pro-social justice for leftist political purposes. Their goal is not to create an overall fair legal system or an efficient government but encourage minority groups to pursue radical political change.175 Ironically, these theories promote anti-Semitism.176

Collectivist Ideology.
Fascism, feminism, race legal theory, dialectical materialism, critical legal theory, socialism, deconstruction, post-modernism, ecological jurisprudence, and all other theories that advocate for government ownership and wealth redistribution are forms of collectivist ideology. Collectivism purports that individuality is a socially constructed phenomenon, since individuals did not exist in the state of nature.177 Collectivism is a political-economic movement that subjugates individuals to a group, and forces interdependence.178 People are grouped (by gender, race, class, etc) and this group identity determines whether individual behaviour is right or wrong. Consequently, morality is determined by our common humanity. 179
Individual Rights Erosion
 The meaning of rights has changed to suit collectivist bias. Inalienable individual rights have been reinterpreted as minority group rights. Owing to the disregard for individual rights, and because law is not fixed, individual rights are overridden by an arbitrary government equally capable of violating, as implementing, rights.180 An example is the myriad of Australian anti-terror laws introduced since 2002. Most were expedited without the usual parliamentary and civil considerations.181 This lack of procedure undermined the democratic values and rights found in our Constitution, common law, and other legislation. Australia has no federal human rights legislation to ensure anti-terrorism laws comply with international human rights standards.182 Consequently, anti-terror legislation infringes upon basic rights including a fair trial, privacy, freedom from arbitrary detention and arrest, non-discrimination, freedom of association and expression, retrospective law, and recognition under law. Historically, such denial of individual rights has preceded totalitarianism.183
Tyrannical Consequences
Legal system change begins with the education of student lawyers.184 Our law texts cherry pick history to support leftist bias. Law professors highlight Marxism but omit its link to holocaust;185 elevate fascist Hobbes above the father of Common Law;186 187 188 criticise liberalist notions of individualism, formal equality, and property ownership;189 favour abandonment of objective truth, moral absolutism, and a universally accepted standard of justice in preference for moral relativism;190 and encourage students to care more for the rights of trees rather than humans.191 The pro-Marxist university lecturers who undermine the foundations of our Western legal system simultaneously enjoy the freedom and rights this same system affords them.192 It comes as no surprise then, that there is no longer an identifiable relationship between justice and the law.

Justice is Crucial
Justice is precious to victims of crime. Justice is a fundamental Biblical principle. Justice is supposed to be the objective of our Justice system. Yet now a desire for justice has seemingly been criminalised and pathologized in Australia. If victims of ritual abuse and mind control can’t depend on our government for justice, what hope do we have? Where do we turn? How do we cope?

 MK-ULTRA and the Occult Scientology and all the other cults are one-dimensional, and we live in a three dimensional world. Cults are as dangerous as drugs. They commit the highest crime: the rape of the soul. - L. Ron Hubbard Jr. (Penthouse, June 1983)
Project OFTEN
John Marks authored his CIA-approved book The Search for the Manchurian Candidate based on 139 boxes of MK-ULTRA documents. While none of the FOI-released documents exposed the truth that children were the ultimate Manchurian Candidates, about 40 percent of the documents pertained to the CIA’s interest in the occult, a fact useful to this chapter.
Sidney Gottlieb initiated Project OFTEN-CHICKWIT to study parapsychology and the occult, to ‘explore the world of black magic’ and ‘harness the forces of darkness and challenge the concept that the inner reaches of the mind are beyond reach.’ Under OFTEN, the CIA visited with and recruited fortune-tellers, palm-readers, clairvoyants, astrologists, mediums, psychics, specialists in demonology, witches and warlocks, Satanists, and other occult practitioners. They established a research laboratory at the University of South Carolina and recruited student guinea pigs via a college class in black witchcraft, demonology and voodoo.
Project OFTEN built on the library of knowledge the Nazi’s acquired by scouring the globe collecting occult practices including trauma-based mind control techniques. During their height of power, the Nazis conducted Luciferian rituals in the streets of Germany in broad daylight. Winston Churchill fittingly wrote of Hitler:
He had conjured up the fearful idol of an all-devouring Moloch of which he was the priest and incarnation.193
Darwin-Galton-Huxley-Wedgewood Dynasty
MK-ULTRA and the occult are inseparable. MK-ULTRA was founded on occultic practises by occultists. To understand this, we must examine the spiritual and philosophical beliefs and practises of the people behind MK-ULTRA, the covert Rothschilds and their overt operatives, the Darwin-Galton-Huxley-Wedgewood dynasty. Aldous Huxley was the evil revolutionary who conceived and facilitated MK-ULTRA in the USA. His brother Julian Huxley coined the term ‘transhumanism’ and founded the eugenicist UNESCO to achieve their transhumanist end goal. Julian and his Australian relative Leonard Huxley coordinated MK-ULTRA in Australia. Aldous and Julian Huxley were the grandsons of biologist, anthropologist and philosopher Thomas Huxley (1825-1895) who co-founded the occultic Imperialist British Round Table Society.

Rothschilds Reformed elite Luciferian John Todd-Collins was the informant behind the 1970s Jack Chick comics responsible for my childhood conversion from satanism to Christianity. According to John Todd-Collins, the HOGD is the Rothschilds’ organisation of witchcraft. The Rothschilds have been the world’s wealthiest family for the past 200 years and are the pinnacle dynasty within the Luciferian power hierarchy. The Cult taught me to revere the Rothschilds as demigods. Based on my programming structure, I deduce that Joseph Mengele was a Rothschild. I also suspect my perpetrators Michael Aquino, Leonas Petrauskas, and Leo’s business partner John Melov were Rothschilds

 Synagogue of Satan
The Rothschilds are Hofjuden. The close ties between the London-based Hofjuden families and the British oligarchy trace back to the founding of the Bank of England, and before that to an alliance with the pirates who financed post-Renaissance Genoa in NorthWest Italy. The three Jewish authors of Dope Inc. (1978) explain this history
Several of the Hofjuden families who converged on London during the 17th and 18th centuries had served the Genoese bankers in their takeover of Holland, had participated in the Dutch East India Company's first expeditions in opium trade, and had collaborated over the centuries with the British Jesuits against European humanist forces…
The Montefiores trace their origin as ‘special operations’ experts for the European oligarchy to the 13th century in Spain, when they ran errands as tax farmers and Inquisitors for their masters, the Genoese. The Montefiores later moved to Holland to help found the Dutch East India Company and the Bank of Holland. After the Stuart Restoration of the mid-17th century, the Montefiores moved to England where they helped establish the Bank of England and the British East India Company. Under Sir Moses Montefiore, the family collaborated with Lord Palmerston and Prime Minister Disraeli in the founding of the present-day Zionist ‘movement…’
Rothschilds, Warburgs, Oppenheimers, Schroeders, and other Hofjuden became the leading financial backers of Adolf Hitler
The Rothschilds and other Hofjuden call themselves Jews yet worship Lucifer instead of the ‘I AM’ Creator God of the Torah and New Testament. Their loathing of fundamentalist Jews and Christians was demonstrated by their financing the extermination of these groups via Hitler, Lenin, Marx, Papal Inquisition, and the CIA. The three Jewish authors of Dope Inc. (1978) asserted the Hofjuden are not true Jews. The Bible says:
I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the Synagogue of Satan. (Rev. 2:9)
The Synagogue of Satan created the Zionist movement and stamped the Luciferian hexagram on Israel’s flag which they named the ‘Star of David.’ The hexagram had nothing to do with King David, and David had nothing to do with witchcraft or Luciferianism. The hexagram represents the pagan god Astarte. Hence the Rothschilds adopted a red hexagram (Red Shield) as their family crest and on their subsidiaries including the Salvation Army. The Luciferians call the hexagram the ‘Seal of Solomon.’ Fritz Springmeier explains:
Throughout the Middle Ages the Seal of Solomon had been used by Arab Magicians, Cabalist Magicians, Druid witches and Satanists. One of the few ancient uses of the symbol was on the floor of a 1,200-year-old Moslem Mosque found where Tel Aviv is today. In the twelve century an Ashkenazic Jew Menahem Ben Duji, who thought he was the Messiah, used the magical symbol. Because the Rothschilds were Satanists they adopted this powerful magic symbol in 1822 for their coat-of-arms.
David’s son Solomon defied God’s law by substituting Jewish brides with a thousand pagan whores who seduced him into satanism. Consequently, Israel permanently split into two kingdoms. Ten tribes rejected Solomon’s son by a pagan wife as their king, split off and formed the northern kingdom called Israel. Two southern tribes formed the kingdom of Judah under Solomon’s pagan offspring. Consider the following 1836 quote:
The Rothschilds are the wonders of modern banking. Sprung from that poetic, that ancient, that mysterious race, from whom we derive all our religion and half of our civilization, we see the descendants of Judah, after a persecution of two thousand years, peering above kings, rising higher than emperors, and holding a whole continent in the hollow of their hands. The Rothschilds govern a Christian world. Not a cabinet moves without their advice. They stretch their hand, with equal ease, from Petersburg to Vienna, from Vienna to Paris, from Paris to London, from London to Washington. Baron Rothschild, the head of the house, is the true king of Judah, the prince of the captivity, the Messiah so long looked for by this extraordinary people. He holds the keys of peace or war, blessing or cursing. To what will all this lead? If the holy city to be rebuilt? – the third temple to rear its urrets to heaven? No. The lion of the tribe of Judah, baron Rothschild, possesses more real force than David – more wisdom than Solomon. What do they care for the barren seacoast of Palestine? They are the brokers and counsellors of the kings of Europe and of the republican chiefs of America. What more can they desire? 194
The Synagogue of Satan intend to build a Third Temple. They are responsible for the growing antisemitism brewing another holocaust, because people think the Zionist bankers who push for the state of Israel (which was almost named ‘Zion’) and the construction of a Third Temple, are Jewish. The Rothschild’s financed the Nazi holocaust to justify the need for a Jewish homeland, with the Templar end goal of building a replacement temple in Jerusalem to house their coming fake Messiah, the Antichrist. The Rothschilds flooded Palestine with people whose Jewishness is determined via the maternal line. This contradicts the Torah which clearly says the male bloodline establishes Jewish heritage. The Old Testament lists pages and pages of male birth lines, not female. King David specifically addressed this issue. Women may convert to Judaism via marriage while men certainly can’t.
John Gittinger told me my paternal line was ‘Levite’ which somehow qualified me for priestess Grande Dame candidacy. My real Polish grandfather once got drunk and told my cousin that his father, a violinist, was Jewish. I doubt he would joke about being Jewish after living through the Holocaust and knowing the Nazis kidnapped his brother-in-law one night and murdered him in Auschwitz. My father used to tell people his mother was Jewish. I am not convinced the low IQ Lithuanian woman who raised him, who looked and behaved nothing like my high IQ family, is his mother, but suspect she stole my father as a prop to escape Europe. My step-grandfather hated Jews, yet some of my perpetrators he associated with claimed to be Jewish. The Russian Jewish parents of my sister-in-law said my brothers were the spitting image of Eastern Europen Jews. Ashkenazi Jews were expelled from the Mediterranean and settled in Poland in the 12th century. Research indicates the Ashkenazi maternal line is mainly European, while the male line is predominantly middle eastern.
I doubt the dome of the rock is the original site of Solomon’s temple, but of an ancient Roman fort. Former biology professor Walter Veith produced an excellent Total Onslaught series on the secret history of Freemasonry and Catholicism, in which he proves the gold-topped Mosque is a renovated Roman Temple of Diana. Jesus clearly said ‘not one stone’ would be left of the Temple site, including the foundation stones. I visited Jerusalem and saw numerous stones constitute the ancient Roman fort site. I agree the real Temple site was completely razed down to below its foundations, even the hill and soil it sat on were removed. Let the Communist cult of Islam created by the Roman Catholic church keep their pagan temple. The Bible is clear, God will ultimately make the Synagogue of Satan bow at the feet of His genuine Jewish people. He will restore the Jewish people to their homeland in His time:
Behold, I will make them of the Synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. (Rev. 3:9)

The Scottish Rite of Free Masons
The Rothschilds control global Freemasonry. Fritz Springmeier wrote: The Masonic reference book ‘10,000 Famous Freemasons,’ Vol. 4, p.74, indicates two other sons of Amschel were Masons, James Meyer Rothschild, and his brother Nathan Meyer Rothschild. James Rothschild in Paris was a 33-degree Scottish Rite Mason, and his brother Nathan in London was a member of the Lodge of Emulation. And Jewish Freemason Katz indicates Solomon Meir Rothschild, a third member of the five brothers, was initiated into Freemasonry on June 14, 1809. The Rothschilds became powerful within Freemasonry.
Freemasonry has links to the Ancient Greek and Egyptian mystery religions: The Dionysiacs of Asia Minor were undoubtedly an association of architects and engineers, who had the exclusive privilege of building temples, stadia, and theatres, under the mysterious tutelage of Bacchus…195
Freemason Lodges (temples) are decorated with Ancient Egyptian paraphernalia, indicating its connection to the Cult of Isis and Thoth/Hermes. Freemasons call themselves ‘architects’ meaning designers of alchemic transhumanism.
Project International Architects:
An interesting couple built near my childhood farm. Radovan von Winterberg was an engineer and architect who claimed to be the rightful owner of Winterberg Castle which sits on the Czekoslovakian border. Radovan drove a red 260z sports car that featured UNESCO diplomatic plates. He once told me ‘Australia needs a mini-Hitler’ and he showed me drafts of Pauline Hanson’s early speeches which he claimed to have written. Radovan said he was still on the payroll of some secret service agency that retained him as a consultant for $50k per year. His wife Michelle worked as a biochemist for the CSIRO. At one stage she headed the biological section of the Sydney Water Board's Scientific Services. The mysterious von Winterberg couple built an underground house at Terranora and installed tight security and cameras in an 80s era when neighbours typically left their front doors unlocked. A sign at their entrance read ‘Project International Architects’ and featured a Freemason square and compass logo. While the average person might dismiss the sign as a reference to his house design business, I immediately took it as a reference to her human design business. Our family always speculated that Michelle was conducting illegal genetic engineering projects in their underground lair which my high IQ blue-eyed blonde father often visited. When Radovan’s house came up for sale one owner later, I challenged my sister-in-law to inspect the place with me and see whether it could have accommodated a cloning lab. She dismissed my lunatic ravings – until we saw the house. Radovan’s underground home resembled a 1960s James Bond movie set complete with space-style shower pods, built-in fish tank, and velvet and silver wallpaper. But it was the room at the end of the house that rendered my sister-in-law speechless. There we found the creepy science lab I knew existed. The room was so haunted, I had difficulty breathing. My sister-inlaw freaked out, fled the property, and refused to discuss what we felt and saw.

Order of Kappa Sigma
A clue to Freemasonry’s origins is found in the Order of Kappa Sigma secret handbook published by Wikileaks. Kappa Sigma is a Freemason fraternity founded in Bologna University, Italy during the 1400s. Michelangelo was a member. The Order spread to the other four great European universities (Florence, Paris, Orleans, and Montpellier) and was preserved by French and Italian nobility. The Kappa Sigma Order of America was founded at Virginia University in 1869 and became the largest fraternity in the USA. Head CIA psychologist (my perpetrator) John W. Gittinger was initiated into Kappa-Sigma at Oklahoma University. Kappa Sigma is Greek for ‘Kirjath Sepher’ the name of an ancient city in southern Canaan. Esau was the brother of Jacob (renamed Israel) who sold God’s blessing for a bowl of stew and killed (and stole the enchanted clothes of) Nimrod who founded the ancient Babylonian mystery religion. Esau married two Canaanite women plus a daughter of Ishmael, the father of Islam. The Canaanites worshipped Sidonians worshipped Baal, Echmoun (Asclepias), Dagon, and Astarte/Ishtar/Oester (Greek Aphrodite and Roman Venus) the goddess of child prostitution to whom babies were sacrificed and Ishtar eggs coloured red with their blood to celebrate spring. Some believe the Hofjuden stem from the bloodline of Esau. The Kappa Sigma symbols include the Luciferian encircled pentagram, Islamic crescent moon, and caduceus of Mercury. Kappa Sigma founder Stephen Alonzo Jackson (aka, Grand Master, or ‘Architect of Ritual’) stated: ‘Let us not rest contently until the Star [Astarte pentagram] and Crescent [moon] is the pride of every college and university throughout the land.’ 196 The fraternity is a means by which our youth are initiated into Luciferian Freemasonry and indoctrinated, like ‘Comrade Gittinger,’ with their agenda. The human skull and crossed thigh bones is another Kappa-Sigma symbol, used to remind members of their sworn oath and the punishment that awaits should they violate it (i.e., beheading and amputation). The initiation ritual involves the use of a genuine human skull and crossed thigh bones placed on an altar. John Ward, University of Sydney Vice Chancellor, created a human skull and cross bones during a Halloween ritual by skinning a child alive. The skull and crossbones symbol is a feature of the Freemasons, Jesuits, Knights Templars, knights of Malta, and Shiners. Freemasons traditionally bury human femur bones on their Lodge grounds during rituals. The Knights Templar had the world’s biggest fleet in the 13th century, and they were notorious for committing acts of ‘piracy’. The Knights of Malta replaced them, and they too were pirates. Pirates financed post-Renaissance Genoa in North-West Italy. The skull and crossbones trace back to ancient Canaan/Sidon/Zidon, a rendezvous for pirates (aka, ‘merchants’). Sidon was a wealthy and powerful city of merchants who first produced the Royal Purple dye worn by Emperors, popes, and Luciferian priests.

Illuminati Bloodlines
In mockery and imitation of God’s 12 tribes, Satan blessed 12 bloodlines. One of these bloodlines was the Ishmaeli bloodline from which a special elite line developed alchemy, assassination techniques, and other occult practices. One bloodline was Egyptian/Celtic/Druidic from which Druidism was developed. One bloodline was in the orient and developed oriental magic. One lineage was from Canaan and the Canaanites. It had the name Astarte, then Astorga, then Ashdor, and then Astor. The tribe of Dan was used as a Judas Iscariot type seed. The royalty of the tribe of Dan have descended down through history as a powerful Satanic bloodline. The 13th or final blood line was copied after God’s royal lineage of Jesus. This was the Satanic House of David with their blood which they believe is not only from the House of David but also from the lineage of Jesus, who they claim had a wife and children. The 13th Satanic bloodline was instilled with the direct seed of Satan so that they would not only carry Christ’s blood--but also the blood of his ‘brother’ Lucifer. One of the bloodlines goes back to Babylon and are descended from Nimrod.197
British Round Table Society and the RIIA
 Cecil Rhodes, who was initiated into Freemasonry at Oxford University, formed a eugenicist secret society to reclaim the British Empire and recapture the USA, the British Round Table Society. Rhodes recruited fellow Freemasons Thomas Huxley, Rudyard Kipling, and Alfred Milner, plus a group of Oxford College graduates known as ‘Milner's Kindergarten.’ This group were trained as an occult priesthood devoted to the eugenicist principles of Imperial rule.
In 1919, the same group founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) to serve as the central planning and recruitment agency for Britain's ‘One World Empire.’ Arnold Toynbee, who sat on the RIIA for nearly 50 years, headed British Intelligence’s Research Division during WW2. Toynbee served as wartime briefing officer to Prime Minister Winston Churchill, a Freemason and Druid. Toynbee stated in 1953:
 By forcing on mankind more and more lethal weapons and at the same time making the whole world more and more interdependent economically, technology has brought mankind to such a degree of distress that we are ripe for deifying any new Caesar who might succeed in giving the world unity and peace. 198
The RIIA were responsible for charting Britain's global drug trafficking trade. Their means of reclaiming British Empire included political infiltration, and instigation of the 1920s Prohibition to facilitate their introduction of drugs, traffickers, and large-scale organized crime to the USA.
Illegal alcohol and illegal narcotics made up two different product lines of the same multinational firm. The British, through their distilleries in Scotland and Canada, and the British, from their opium refineries in Shanghai and Hong Kong, were the suppliers. The British, through their banks in Canada and the Caribbean, were the financiers. Through their political conduits in the United States, the British created the set of political conditions under which the United States might be won back by means other than the failed Balkanization plan of the Civil War period.199

International Assassination
Bureau British PM Henry Palmerston, Patriarch of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, conducted the opium business. Palmerston and his successors employed the following groups to perform assassinations, traffic illegal drugs, and follow a chain of command through the Freemasons:200
1. Triad Society (aka Societies of Heaven) a suppressed religious cult who violently revolted against the Chinese government. Jesuit and Anglican (Church of England) missionaries recruited Cantonese Triads into the East India Company opium trade.
2. Klu-Klux-Klan stemmed from Freemason Knights of the Golden Circle. Co-founded by Confederate General Albert Pike, Jesuit priest, Freemason Grand Commander who promoted Luciferian worship within the Scottish Rite.
3. Young Italy became the Mafia. Originally Sicily’s law enforcement arm, they were organized and commanded by Freemason Communist founder Giuseppe Mazzini. Their uniform was a white cape bearing a Maltese Cross (the insignia of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem) on the left shoulder. During the American Civil War, they paraded in uniform through New Orleans, gunning down African Americans.
4. Anarchist bomb-throwing gangs of Russian Mikhail Bakunin (member of the Grand Orient de France Freemason lodge) organised by Alexander Herzen (Freemason and Rothschild agent).
5. B'nai B'rith, (aka, Constitutional Grand Lodge of the Order of the Sons of the Covenant) a branch of the Freemasonry for American Hofjuden, and US covert intelligence front. Merged operations with the KKK.
6. Order of Zion (aka, B'nai B'rith in the USA) Hofjuden division of the British Royal Family Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. Secret society whose members swear and act on a blood oath. A Freemasonic Order specialising in dirty tricks operations. Founded by London-based Hofjuden Montefiore and Rothschild families. Trained the Confederate leadership, assassinated Abraham Lincoln. Descendants of Confederates migrated to Brazil after the Civil War, namely São Paulo, which became home to the largest Nazi population.
7. Jesuit Order (based in Hapsburg Austria). Military and banking arm of the Roman Catholic church.
 Ref: 199 K. Kalimtgis, D. Goldman & J. Stienberg (1978). Dope, Inc: Britain’s Opium War Against the US Executive Intelligence Review. 200 Ibid. 
The Jesuits formed in 1540 after Henry VIII ousted the pope and declared himself intercessor between man and God after the pope refused to annul Henry’s first marriage. His daughter Elizabeth replaced the Roman Catholic church with the Anglican Church (Catholicism light). (Orthodox Anglicans do not consider themselves protestant, hence the pope offered membership to disgruntled parishioners opposed to ordained of gay priests). Queen Elizabeth received a complete occult education from John Dee who published books on alchemy, ancient languages, hermeticism, Kabbalah, math, and sacred geometry.
The pope created the Vatican Intelligence Service (aka, Santa Alleanza or L'Entità) in 1566 to infiltrate the court of, and overthrow, Elizabeth I. Today, Santa Alleanza is considered the most discreet and greatest intelligence service on the planet. Simon Wiesenthal described it as the world’s ‘best and most effective espionage service.’ In 2008, the Vatican joined INTERPOL to access resources and databases in 192 countries, which expanded Santa Alleanza’s reach. Santa Alleanza was infiltrated by Freemasons. Like Church Militant stated: ‘It is not generally known to Catholics just how well inserted ideological Freemasons are into the intelligence services of the military apparatus of Italy and other European nations.’201 The Italian government disbanded a Freemason group Propaganda Due (P2) after they infiltrated the Vatican bank, but the group simply reformed as different entities.
Jesuit Inquisitors
 The Hofjuden and Jesuits combined forces to torture and murder innocent children and adults during the 1542 Papal Inquisition. The aim of the Inquisition was to instigate spiritual revolution. The Inquisitors targeted Jews, Protestants (fundamental Christians) and heretics. ‘Heretic’ is defined as a person holding an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted, and is synonymous with dissident, nonconformist, and freethinker. The Inquisition torture methods described in the following secret oath, formed the basis of CIA traumabased mind control.
Jesuit Oath
I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants' heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same can’t be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus.202
I witnessed my Jesuit perpetrators commit the crimes described in the above oath. Everything damning and true that was written about the Jesuits back in the 17th Century was, hundreds of years later, declared a ‘forgery’ by Catholic priests or Jesuit Institute publications.
  Ref:  201 The Church Militant (2018). Santa Alleanza: The Vatican Intelligence Service, 14 Sept
Jesuit Perpetrators
The Jesuits are prominent in Australia and amongst my perpetrators. Roman Emperor Ratzinger, a former Nazi, is the first Jesuit pope. Ex-PM Tony Abbott is a Jesuit. Former Labour Party leader Bill Shorten, who escaped a rape conviction because his victim lubricated during penetration and therefore ‘wanted it’ - is a Jesuit. Leonas Petrauskas was schooled by Jesuits in Lithuania and associated with Jesuits in PNG. Antony Kidman had strong Jesuit ties. Kidman attended a Sydney Jesuit school, Saint Aloysius College, with his brother who commenced Jesuit training but abandoned this due to his schizophrenia. The Kidman family attended Star of The Sea Jesuit Church in North Sydney. The Kidman’s family priest was Jesuit Father Paul Coleman who officiated Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s 2006 marriage, and Antony Kidman’s 2014 funeral, at St Mary’s North Sydney, where Anne Conlon’s fake funeral was held. Anne attended a Jesuit convent school under the tutelage of a teacher named Conlon.
Mithraism & Catholicism
For those who think the Vatican runs the world and the pope is the antichrist, note the Vatican are not a bloodline, just a male-dominated order which relies upon recruitment and initiation. The Roman Catholic priestly order stems from the ancient Roman Cult of Mithraism which my British husband and his father, of the Gardiner Illuminati bloodline, were initiated into. Mithraism is so secretive you will find no records of their beliefs and practises. Mithraism rank initiates based on IQ level, and conduct ceremonies in which priests ‘marry’ boy brides - which might explain the epidemic of Catholic priests raping altar boys. I also know from experience that the Roman Catholic high mass is a watered-down version of the Luciferian black mass.
Order of the Illuminati
In 1527, Ignatius of Loyola was let off with a warning by a Christian court for sympathising with the Alumbrados of Spain (aka, Spanish Illuminati). In 1534, Loyola founded the Jesuit Order. In 1773, the Pope ordered the suppression of the Jesuits, and Adam Weishaupt became professor of Canon Law at a Jesuit University. In 1776, Weishaupt founded the Order of the Illuminati. Illuminati is synonymous with Luciferianism. Illuminated means ‘to make luminous’ while Lucifer means ‘light-bringer.’ My perpetrators referred to the entire Luciferian network as ‘The Order.’
In his 1797 book ‘Proofs of a Conspiracy Against all the Religions and Governments of Europe Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Freemasons, Illuminati, and Reading Societies,’ John Robison showed how the Jesuit Order and Scottish Rite of Freemasonry colluded to fulfil Adam Weishaupt’s goal of revolution.

Days before the 2016 US Presidential Election, I received a barrage of phone texts from old friends asking if I was okay. People started questioning my kids regarding our family’s welfare. I had no idea what was happening. Then I checked my blog site. A spike of 100,000 views in one day stemmed from an article that activist group Anonymous published about my being trafficked to American VIPs as a kid. They used my story to expose Hillary Clinton’s involvement in a child sex trafficking ring. The Clinton Foundation was a front for the trafficking of children including Haiti earthquake victims. 
 Bill and Hilary’s trafficking network implicated campaign chairman John Podesta, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, and ‘Saint’ Mother Teresa. In 1995, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient opened a Mother Teresa Home for Infant Children adoption centre in Washington DC with Hillary Clinton which quietly closed in 2002.5 Mother Teresa’s Roman Catholic order, Missionaries of Charity, came under Indian government investigation for child. trafficking, with a nun arrested for selling babies. 67 Mother Teresa accepted donations from Haiti dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier. 
Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficked minors to VIPs including Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew, Kevin Spacey, and Bill Clinton who flew aboard the Lolita Express to Epstein’s ‘Little St. James’ pedo island in the Caribbean. Surveillance camera footage allegedly leaked from the island showed children locked in underground rooms. The island conveniently caught fire due to a massive explosion in early 2019, destroying all evidence. Jeffrey Epstein is among the many VIPs and government heads who knowingly donated money to the Clinton Foundation child trafficking operation. The Clinton Foundation received $88 million from Australian taxpayers between 2006 and 2014, peaking during Welsh-born Australian ALP Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s term.8 
Hilary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and his brother Tony Podesta were staying in a Portuguese villa owned by UK politician Sir Clement Freud, in the same resort where British child Madeleine McCann was when she disappeared. Clement Freud was Sigmund Freud’s grandson. British media outed Clement Freud as a violent child rapist. 9 John and Tony Podesta perfectly matched the identikit images Scotland Yard released of Madeleine’s abductors. 
 Pedogate, as the scandal became known, surfaced when Wikileaks released emails from John Podesta’s account in October 2016. The emails notably outed Hillary Clinton as a self-confessed ‘Molech’ worshipper, and captured politicians ordering children for pedophile parties using alleged fast-food code words. The content of the Podesta emails is consistent with the following leak from a CIA cut-out company called STRATFOR:
From: Fred Burton [mailto:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.] Sent: Thursday, May 14, 2009 2:39 PM To: 'Don Kuykendall' Cc: 'Aaric Eisenstein'; 'Darryl O'Connor'; 'Copeland Susan' Subject: RE: Get ready for ‘Chicago Hot Dog Friday’ I think Obama spent about $65,000 of the tax-payers money flying in pizza/dogs from Chicago for a private party at the White House not long ago, assume we are using the same channels? 
  A related email from STRATFOR’s president informed Aaric Eisenstein (of SVP Publishing): ‘Aaric, you can participate as well!’ ‘If we get the same ‘waitresses,’ I'm all for it!!!’ Aariac Eisenstein replied. If STRATFOR staff were talking about a Whitehouse orgy, the word ‘waitresses’ was placed in inverted comas to indicate its alternative meaning. Waitressed would typically be prostitutes, most likely child prostitutes. According to this email (disseminated by  Anonymous and Wikileaks), President Barrack Obama ordered $65,000 worth of fast food, an act which contravened Whitehouse policy dictating all food be prepared onsite using raw ingredients to counter the security risk posed by externally prepared foods. The leaked emails prompted Hilary Clinton to publicly declare Australian award-winning journalist and whistle-blower Julian Assange a ‘dead man walking.’ 
Child prostitutes visiting the Whitehouse is old news. On 29 June 1989, the front page of the Washington Times read: 
The sensational headline related to the Franklin Scandal in Omaha Nebraska that David Shurter was a victim of and witness to. Shurter is also a victim of my perpetrator Lt. Col. Michael Aquino who was implicated in Franklin plus the Presidio and McMartin preschool scandals in which children were sexually and ritually abused 
Pedogate whistle-blowers claimed, children trafficked to Washington DC were held in transit cellars within local businesses including a restaurant where an ‘entertainer’ was filmed boasting about raping and killing kids. Clean FBI and NYPD officers apparently made multiple attempts to charge Hillary Clinton and other VIP members of the trafficking ring, but their efforts were thwarted by those in the chain of command above them. One of the attempted charges related to a video of Hillary Clinton and her bisexual lover Huma Aberdeen (wife of pedophile Anthony Weiner) conducting a Luciferian ritual in which they skinned the face off a live young girl. The dissemination of this video was the said reason behind YouTube’s global shutdown that occurred in late 2018 while I was online. Someone later posted forensic photos of the skinned victim on my Twitter feed which I automatically viewed. 
Mainstream media giants launched a cover-up campaign against the leaked Podesta emails and related crimes, to muddy the waters and leave the general public confused about the truth. The likes of CNN (founded by my pedophile rapist Ted Turner) successfully drew the public’s attention from what was contained in the emails, to who might have leaked them and spread ‘fake news.’ The pedophiles coined the term ‘fake news’ in reaction to the publication of Podesta’s emails. Clinton herself never addressed or denied the email contents. The emails were said to have been leaked by US Intelligence community staff opposed to organised pedophilia. Mainstream journalists whose reports were consistent with this version of events were promptly fired. Further, over 100 Clinton staff and associates met untimely deaths, in quick succession, just like the many witnesses to JFK’s assassination, and witnesses to Kevin Spacey’s sexual assaults. Pedogate was discredited as ‘fake news’ despite NBC’s (11 June 2013) televised report regarding Hillary Clinton using her position as US Secretary of State to cease an investigation into child sex trafficking within the State Department. 
Despite the mainstream media blackout, Pedogate reached the public via social media. YouTube featured interviews with credible witnesses who testified to the existence of an international child sex trafficking operation involving US politicians and the CIA. That was when I noticed retired NYPD Detective James Rothstein. Pedogate, he explained in interview, was the same VIP pedophile network he investigated for 35 years. The perpetrators were doing everything in their power to shut the Pedogate story down, Rothstein observed. He predicted the perpetrators would successfully bury it just like every other time their network was almost exposed, including the Franklin, Presidio, and McMartin scandals. 
Rothstein explained that the NYPD was no ordinary state police force, but a leading investigative agency with national and international offices. Back in 1966, Rothstein became the first police detective assigned to investigate the prostitution industry. Almost immediately he discovered an underground sexual blackmail operation that compromised politicians with child prostitutes. ‘Human Compromise’ is what he labelled the honey-trap process. Rothstein and his colleagues found that approximately 70 percent of top US Government leaders were compromised in this way. Rothstein said, the CIA conducted the human compromise operation, while the FBI was tasked with covering up any leaks. 
The CIA trafficked the kids, the FBI covered their tracks 
  James Rothstein said he was alerted to an identical VIP pedophile ring operating in the UK when Scotland Yard consulted him regarding the Profumo Affair. UK agents visited Rothstein in New York to extract anything he knew about British politicians and other VIPs having sex with child prostitutes. Britain were in damage control, tying up loose ends, covering up the true pedophile nature of the Profumo Affair. Here is my email exchange with Rothstein concerning this incident:
From: Fiona Sent: Sunday, July 29, 2018 6:24 PM To: Jim Subject: CIA Hollywood pedophiles being exposed Incidentally, someone criticised my writing saying the Profumo Affair was 1963 and before your appointment, and so you are a disinfo agent. Obviously I don’t believe that - but can you tell me what to say in your defence regarding those dates? _________________________________________________

To: Fiona
 That is correct. They did not do the follow up until a number of years later after the Profumo case broke. My source in the business knew the whole story.
 They were making sure that there were no other connection to the operation we had in New York. Here is a copy of the actual report. 
The part they were looking for was from 1963.  
  In the late 60’s, Rothstein is called to attend a meeting with a number of New York Police Department officials and two agents from Scotland Yard at a high-end restaurant on the Upper East Side. (They picked up the tab). Scotland Yard was following up on the Profumo Scandal in 1963. They were trying to find out if their national security had been compromised. Profumo had used the services of Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice Davies. The  two girls had also been involved with a Russian, Yevgeny Ivanov. The connection in New York was that Keeler and Davies had been associated with a high-level prostitution ring operating out of an apartment on Fifty Sixth Street and Second Avenue. Rothstein calls on Peggy to determine who was operating the ring and what was going on at the prostitution operation on 56 St. and 2nd Ave. Rothstein conducted an in-depth investigation using Peggy’s information and determined that the association between Keeler, Davies, and the Madam of the Prostitution House on 56 St. and 2 Ave. were in fact true. The information Rothstein gleaned from the investigation verified that the location was being used to set-up and compromise victims. Rothstein believes it is a sanctioned State of the Art, High-End human intelligence and human compromise operation.
  The late 60’s was 68-69. I became a cop in 1965 Feb. 15.
  Rothstein and his law enforcement associates realised the international pedophile rings were all connected. He said the VIP members met at various world locations where each destination catered for a different type of degenerate sexual proclivity, including ‘satanic-themed’ abuse.
Rothstein said he and his colleagues encountered fierce resistance to the investigation and prosecution of members of the child trafficking operation. His journalist contacts at the New York Times and Washington Post could not get stories about the VIP ring printed. All police, FBI, customs and IRS officers who pursued the VIP pedophile network above street level had their careers subsequently destroyed. Rothstein’s attempts to arrest key perpetrators were continually thwarted. For example, the time he served the head of the CIA’s human compromise operation, Tippy Richardson. According to pedophile turned-police-informant Ben Rose, in November 1971, Tippy Richardson, businessman Leonard Stewart (from OPEC, Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) and a surgeon named Dr Chesky, raped and murdered three boys aged 14 to 15 years in Ben Rose’s apartment on East 64th Street in New York City. The New York State Select Committee on Crime subsequently served subpoenas on both Tippy Richardson and Leonard Stewart. When served, Tippy Richardson said that because he worked for the CIA the subpoena would be withdrawn under the National Security Act by the time Rothstein and his colleague returned to their offices. That is precisely what occurred. 
In 1972, Rothstein arrested one of the five Watergate burglars, CIA operative Frank Sturgis. During a subsequent two-hour interrogation, Rothstein discovered the truth about Watergate (plus Sturgis’ and the CIA’s involvement in the Bay of Pigs incident, and the related assassination of JFK). Sturgis told Rothstein, the Watergate burglars sought something they nicknamed ‘The Book’ which listed the Democratic and Republican politicians who accessed child prostitutes, their sexual proclivities, the amounts they paid to rape kids, etc. 
  The official Watergate explanation is that the Liberals broke into Democratic National Committee Headquarters to obtain information about their election strategies. People who lived through Watergate typically comment with a frown, ‘That never made sense.’ Rothstein’s experiences make better sense of why Nixon conspired to quash the Watergate investigation, why he suggested the investigation posed a threat to national security, why his personal secretary destroyed Oval Office tape recordings after they were subpoenaed, why chief CIA psychologist John W. Gittinger was called to testify at the  congressional committee that investigated Watergate, 1011 and why Nixon’s own Vice President issued a pardon which protected Nixon from prosecution for any crimes he had ‘committed or may have committed or taken part in’ as President. If Nixon’s crimes included pedophilia, that would make perfect sense.
  I am confident President Richard Nixon and his good buddy ‘the Reverend’ Billy Graham were named in the Watergate pedophile records. I am confident of this because I was sex trafficked by CIA head psychologist John W. Gittinger to both men as a young child.
I spoke with James Rothstein on 13 April 2018, 9:48 am and asked him whether he knew, or had heard, that Nixon was a pedophile. ‘No, I did not,’ he quipped with surprise and interest. I next asked him whether he knew about Billy Graham being a pedophile. At this, Rothstein chortled and responded confidently, ‘Oh, we heard lots about that!’ 
  CIA Billy Graham
 I published a draft of this Watergate was Pedogate chapter on my blog in 2018. It proved popular. ‘Watergate was Pedogate is the best thing I ever read,’ one reader commented. My article caused great controversy, particularly among Southern Baptist Billy Graham worshippers who told me I was the talk of many a Sunday table. Photographs published by Billy’s son Franklin Graham on social media showing him proudly dining on what he described as ‘killer doughnuts’ at Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland added weight to    my allegation, that Billy Graham was a multi-generational Luciferian pedophile. Many concluded that Franklin Graham posted his tweet as a cult threat against me, in direct response to my articles exposing his Freemason father. Conservative Christians found it inappropriate for an evangelical preacher to dine at an establishment that sold doughnuts decorated with encircled pentagrams and which featured Jesus Christ crucified on a penis and testicle shaped doughnut called ‘Cock-N-Balls.’ My articles caused one elderly Baptist to cut the Billy Graham Foundation from her will.
  The CIA intervened to protect their agent Billy Graham.12 One of my key perpetrators, US Army Psychological Operations expert Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, weighed in on an orchestrated international effort to discredit me. Another perpetrator, Bond University lecturer Katarina Fritzon, responded to my allegations on official Bond University letterhead. The written responses of my two perpetrators mirrored each other in their accusation I was a crazy fantasist. Yet people typically ignore crazy fantasists. People respond to someone who is swaying public opinion and who threatens to expose their cult involvement. Only the most desperate and dumb perpetrators respond personally in writing. After this umpteenth attack on my credibility failed, the fool who published both responses subsequently begged social media sharers to delete Luciferian priest Michael Aquino’s email to him, before he disappeared from the internet.
Team Aquino’s angle was to focus on whether Rothstein had personally investigated Billy Graham, and they staged a phone interview with the retired detective. I subsequently phoned Rothstein’s home. His wife, who had warmly welcomed Aquino’s lackey, was cold and short with me. I phoned Rothstein’s mobile. ‘How did you get this number?!’ Rothstein asked defensively. It was the same number Aquino’s lackey called him on. 
‘It’s plastered all over the internet,’ I responded. ‘You were tricked. A recording of your conversation with Aquino’s lackey is everywhere.’ 
‘I thought what you’re doing is admirable,’ he lamented. 
‘Can’t you just tell people an old man got it wrong?’ No, I could not.    
  To clarify, Rothstein never told me he personally worked on an investigation into Billy Graham. Rothstein spoke of Billy Graham in the context of having heard about the preacher’s pedophile antics from somewhere within his network of associates whose job it was to investigate VIP pedophile rings. We never discussed the source of this information, or whether it came from his own NYPD organisation, or from external agencies like the FBI, or his journalist contacts. He simply immediately and emphatically asserted to me that he and his colleagues ‘heard lots’ about Billy Graham’s pedophile involvement
I am not the first to publicly accuse Billy Graham of being a CIA agent, Freemason, and rapist. MK-ULTRA victim Kathleen Sullivan, who wrote Unshackled: A Survivor's Story of Mind Control, 13 said he raped her. Former high-ranking Freemason James Shaw described how 33⁰ Freemason Billy Graham was present at his own 33⁰ initiation ritual.14 Time magazine reported, 15 the CIA funded Billy Graham’s 1967 Latin American crusade under a  CIA cut-out, the US National Student Association, which also financed the National Council of Churches, Harvard Law School, and AFL-CIO affiliates.16 The New York Times picked up the story.17 
The Rothstein incident is a fine example of the tactics employed by CIA paid social media trolls. They search hard for inconsistencies and try to discredit and dismiss my entire testimony based on one small detail. I spent five years on the internet disproving every accusation. Every time I successfully defended myself, the CIA paid internet trolls ignored their defeat and moved directly onto their next attempt. That is a CIA tactic and the same thing a courtroom lawyer is trained to do. These CIA social media trolls are trained in public persuasion tactics based on Social Psychology, Crowd Psychology, and Bystander Effects. The CIA know that most people do not bother researching facts for themselves. Instead they would come to me and demand an answer to every false accusation, no matter how absurd. That is another reason I ditched social media: people’s apathy. To most I became a source of entertainment, with people watching how I fared in the attacks, like Romans watching Christians being fed to lions in the colosseum. The CIA will do the same with this book, focus on discrediting my entire 160,000+ words with one stupid point that I do not clarify sufficiently. 
James Rothstein told me that during his investigations he became aware of an identical child sex trafficking ring in Australia which involved our Prime Ministers. Regarding this matter, Rothstein did clarify that he had not directly investigated the Australian pedophiles himself, but that an Australian intelligence officer named Peter Osborne knew the details. Rothstein confirmed that Australian politicians and other VIPs attended international child brothels. 
The Black Network 
Dutch banker Ronald Bernard also surfaced in the wake of the Pedogate scandal to shed further light on the people and system behind the international child trafficking network. During a series of interviews with a woman named Irma Schiffers, Bernard explained how he worked in international finance and high-end money laundering for 12 years. In that role, he discovered that political power does not reside with publicly elected representatives, but with the world’s 8,000 to 8,500 wealthiest individuals who exercise power behind the scenes and who routinely manipulate the media. These elites, Bernard said, sit at the top of a power structure that resembles a pyramid: 
World Banking Power Structure 
8,000 - 8,500 wealthiest individuals 
Bank for International Settlements (BIS) 
IMF (International Monetary Fund) + World Bank Central Banks 
 Multinational companies 
Countries’ governments       
  Ronald Bernard described the Central Banks as ‘illegally created private banks’ which oversee the commercial banking system of their respective countries. He said the wealthiest 8,000 to 8,500 people created the BIS in 1930. Since the world’s richest individuals are too young to have helped establish the BIS 88 years ago, he must mean banking dynasties like the Rothschilds.
Dope Inc. (1978) 
In a chapter called Banking and the World’s Biggest Business, the book Dope Inc. (1978) lists nine family dynasties responsible for the modern drug industry which ‘…is run as a single integrated world operation, from the opium poppy to the nickel bag of heroin sold on an inner-city corner.’ 18    
  The names of the families and institutions are known to the history student: Matheson, Keswick, Swire, Dent, Baring, and Rothschild; Jardine Matheson, the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, the Chartered Bank, the Peninsular and Orient Steam Navigation Company [P&O]. Britain’s array of intelligence fronts ran a worldwide assassination bureau, operating through occult secret societies: The Order of Zion, Mazzini’s Mafia, the ‘Triads’ or Societies of Heaven in China.19 … 
We will then take a grand tour through the Anglo-Dutch offshore banking centres, watching money being laundered through Basel, Liechtenstein, Tel Aviv, and the Bahamas; tracing it carefully as it changes ownership from the mob, to the   Bronfmans, to British banks, to the Israeli Mossad — finally ending up in dummy corporations to finance international terrorism and a privately owned worldwide assassination bureau. 20
  The drug industry is run as a single integrated world operation.
  Dutch Origins. Ronald Bernard said the financial hierarchy he worked for originated in Holland. The Dope Inc. (1978) authors agree. The British Crown employed the Hofjuden (‘Court Jews’) to financially manage their drug operation. These Royal bankers migrated from Amsterdam to Britain after the 1688 Revolution during which Holland’s leader conquered England and was crowned King William III. Previously, the bankers participated in the Dutch East India Company's first opium trade expeditions, collaborated for centuries with the British Jesuits, and participated in the Jesuit Inquisition. The Royal bankers were rewarded with Royal bloodline wives. These bankers, including the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Oppenheimers and Schroeders became Hitler’s main financial backers. The British Royal family are of German descent and changed their family name from German-sounding House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to English-sounding House of Windsor in 1917. Their Nazi sympathies were demonstrated in the 1933 film footage of future King Edward VIII teaching the ‘heil Hitler’ arm salute to young Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, and their mother. In October 1937, abdicated Edward visited Nazi Germany where he met Hitler, dined with Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, and toured a concentration camp.  
  The Royal bankers coordinated the laundering of drug money via offshore unregulated banks including Britain’s island colonies. Hong Kong was established as the centre of the global drug trade. The British Crown created the P&O shipping line specifically to transport the drugs, plus the HSBC bank to launder the opium proceeds. A portion of the drug money was laundered via ‘legitimate’ cash businesses like hotels, restaurants, gambling establishments, while some was channelled into blood diamonds, gold and art.
The Royal Family created P&O to traffic drugs, & HSBC to launder drug money 
The Hofjuden sponsored select families to run the criminal underworld and its front organizations. These families committed crimes of trafficking, extortion and murder. The Bronfman Rothschild finance company is a prime example of this arrangement. The Canadian heirs to the Seagram liquor company were originally known as the ‘Bronfman Gang.’ They made their initial fortune boot-legging alcohol and operating prostitution brothels during prohibition, followed by trafficking cocaine and heroin. 
Nothing has Changed 
Dope Inc. (1978) named prominent families involved in the drug trade, including the Astor, Bundy, DuPont, Freeman, Kennedy, Li, Rockefeller, Rothschild, and Russell dynasties. Fritz Springmeier added Bronfman, Cabot, Shaw, Bacon, Perkins, and Morgan to the list. He  aid all of these were Luciferian bloodlines. The same families are still trafficking drugs and children, as recent events indicate: 
- In April 2019, Seagram heiress Clare Bronfman pleaded guilty to her role in a sex trafficking operation called NXVIM. Her sister and co-financer Sara Bronfman was implicated but avoided charges. 
- In June 2019, US officials seized a cargo ship owned by J.P. Morgan Chase which was trafficking 20 tons of cocaine worth $1.3 billion. 
  In the late 1990s, Amway salesman Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman founded NXIVM. Raniere, who attended a Luciferian Rudolph Steiner school, modelled NXIVM on Scientology. Salzman was trained in NLP by Richard Bandler (MK-ULTRA perpetrator), and in hypnosis by Herbert Spiegel (US Army hypnotist, and MK-ULTRA researcher at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, who wrote the foreword to the MK-ULTRA classic, The Control of Candy Jones). 
The Bronfman sisters financed NXIVM and its subsidiaries including the non-profit Ethical Science Foundation which came under state Attorney General investigation in 2017 for performing brain-activity and other human behavioural studies. Medical doctor Brandon B. Porter conducted MK-ULTRA style ‘Human Fright Experiments’ in which he hooked over 100 victims to an EEG and recorded their reaction to surprise screenings of snuff films:   
      …an actual video of the horrific and brutal murders and dismemberment of four women by machetes; and violent film clips, including a male African American being viciously stomped by a Nazi; a conscious male being forced to eat a portion of his own brain matter; and a graphic gang rape.21
  The New York State Office of Professional Medical Conduct initially determined Dr Porter’s behaviour did not constitute medical misconduct. They caved to pressure following the high profile NXIVM case. 
Back in 2013, Keith Raniere patented a device designed to measure victims’ sensory responses to watching snuff films. He labelled this, ‘Determination of whether a Luciferian can be rehabilitated.’ Women who were not overtly traumatised by the images were considered suitable recruits and physically branded like cattle. Their numbness at watching snuff films indicated their passivity to, and suitability for, sex trafficking. 
 The mainstream media ignored the crux of the story, that NXVIM was a front for CIA child sex trafficking. 
NXVIM leader Raniere and his sidekick Allison Mack were originally charged with child sex trafficking. In 2019 the couple were additionally charged with child pornography. The pending counts filed on 19 April 2018 read:   
  1. Sex trafficking of children by force, fraud, or coercion. 
2. Conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of children by force, fraud, or coercion. 
3. Attempt to establish peonage, slavery, involuntary servitude, human trafficking. 
Adding weight to NXVIM posing as a ‘legitimate’ front organisation for child trafficking, Clare Bronfman sponsored a NXVIM subsidiary called Rainbow Cultural Garden which operated numerous international childcare centres located in the USA, UK, Ireland, Guatemala, Spain and Mexico. Bronfman also purchased an island in Fiji, a notorious child trafficking hub. The NXVIM court case revealed the Mexican government, including their President, were involved in the operation, vindicating my five-month 2018 online campaign to expose the Arizona/Mexican border as the main human trafficking land route involving Tuscon Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, his senior police staff who were previously implicated in child trafficking in California, and a minion of NSA / FBI informants with Luciferian cult connections. Isaac Kappy who helped me expose this operation subsequently died under suspicious circumstances in Arizona near an NSA base immediately after he reached out for help to the Clinton and CIA-linked trained assassin who hid the discovery of child trafficking camps in the Tuscon desert. 
NXIVM bore the hallmarks of a CIA human trafficking and compromise operation. The cult sex trafficked children and adults, targeted influential people including entertainers, and owned over 60 related companies including a video department called Moving Pixels. Connections were detected between NXIVM and human trafficking mob bosses Bill and Hillary Clinton: 
  - Texts exist between Keith Raniere and Hillary Clinton. - In the 1990s, Bill Clinton asked Keith Raniere for money because he was doing business in Arkansas. When Raniere refused, the state Attorney General targeted his operation for closure. Consequently, Raniere’s new NXIVM operation made illegal campaign contributions to the Clintons. This information was revealed during Mark Vincente’s testimony during the NXVIM trial (12 May 2019). 
 The Octopus   
  Dope Inc. described the same criminal system as Ronald Bernard who said his own laundering operation dealt with governments, multinationals, terrorist organisations, and secret service agencies. Intelligence agencies like the CIA, MI6 and Mossad do not serve and protect a people or country as the public expect, he explained, but are all criminal organizations that trade in drugs, weapons, and children. The CIA functions as a private police force for the elite. According to Bernard, the wealthy elite control their employees through compromise and blackmail – just as James Rothstein described. 
 There must have been some truth to the 1978 content of Dope Inc. because after its publication the HSBC lost its licence to operate in the USA. Further, the 1978 book inspired law enforcement officials to swap their assumption that drug trafficking consisted of pockets of independent criminal activity, for understanding the drug industry as a global network coordinated by the CIA, with proceeds laundered through banks and funnelled into the CIA’s covert terrorist operations.   
  All intelligence agencies are privately owned criminal organizations
Dope Inc. and Ronald Bernard’s testimony are consistent with the 1972 Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) scandal and the findings of reporter Danny Casalaro who was ‘suicided’ while investigating the same secret syndicate. The Manhattan District Attorney who closed BCCI’s USA branch announced that 16 witnesses died while investigating the BCCI’s involvement in covert CIA operations, arms smuggling to Iraq, money laundering, and child prostitution. Danny Casalaro labelled the system The Octopus and described it as follows: 
They’re not government officials but their tentacles can reach into any part of the government in almost any country including legitimate and rogue spy networks. They are not notable industrialists, but they can pull the strings of the oil and banking empires at will. They are not known criminals, but they successfully penetrated all factions of organized crime including the Mafia, the Japanese Yakuza, the secret Chinese Triads, and the terrorist underground. 22 
Casalaro linked The Octopus to people, places, and activities consistent with my experience. His notes and phone records referenced drug trafficking, money laundering, Mossad, CIA, shellfish-based bioweapons, genetic engineering, Nicaragua, Watergate, Australia’s Nugent-Hand Bank, Pine Gap, MJ-12, and Area 51.23 This bizarre combination of diverse and seemingly unrelated research topics only makes sense within the context of witness testimonies like mine. I can pull together every single one of those topics and explain their solid relationship. 
The best way to understand the global child trafficking industry is to trace the history of the drug trafficking industry. As you read Dope Inc. cross out the word ‘drugs’ and replace it with the word ‘kids’ to gain a picture of the child trafficking network that traded me. Like the drug trade, the child sex trafficking industry is run as a single integrated world operation. At the top sit the wealthy elite who maintain control by ensuring only blackmailed, compromised politicians, military brass and government officials occupy leadership. The secret services, including ASIO, MI6 and the CIA coordinate the child trafficking and human compromise operation, receive the victims procured via the little men, modify the behaviour of child victims until they become suitable assets, and transport the trained victims nationally and internationally to service VIP pedophiles 
Child trafficking is run as a single integrated world operation coordinated by the CIA 
Operation Mockingbird: In 1977, Watergate investigative journalist Carl Bernstein said the CIA had recruited over 400 American journalists
Alsop is one of more than 400 American journalists who in the past twenty‑five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters. Some of these journalists’ relationships with the Agency were tacit; some were explicit. There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services—from simple intelligence gathering to serving as go‑betweens with spies in Communist countries. Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA. Editors shared their staffs. Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters who considered themselves ambassadors without‑portfolio for their country. Most were less exalted: foreign correspondents who found that their association with the Agency helped their work; stringers and freelancers who were as interested in the derring‑do of the spy business as in filing articles; and, the smallest category, full‑time CIA employees masquerading as journalists abroad. In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.24 
This CIA operation was called Mockingbird. Australia and the UK have their own network of Mockingbird journalists which sprung to the defence of Westminster VIP pedophiles. 
 In 1971 an Adelaide barrister from the Communist Party of Australia created the precursor to what later became the Pedophile Information Exchange. This lawyer was the late ELLIOT JOHNSON. The Pedophile Information Exchange was formed from earlier pedophile groups such as the Lewis Carroll Collectors Guild and the (homosexual) Peter Pan Club. Another founder of this organization (from the Peter Pan Club) was FRANK HOUSTON who also founded the pseudo-church The Assembly of God. Houston was pastor of the Surrey Hills Christian Centre which later morphed into Hillsong Church. Houston was an organizer for the Peter Pan Club when he was contacted by Elliot Johnson and asked to assist in forming a ‘united front’ for organized pedophilia. This resulted in the formation of the Pedophile Information Exchange in February 1973. This organization was then exported to the United Kingdom. 
  The above is an excerpt from correspondence I received in 2017. PIE (Pedophile Information Exchange) campaigned for the social and legal acceptance of pedophilia:
We want to dispel the myths connected with paedophilia, and show that most pedophiles desire gentle, loving, and mutually pleasurable relationships. We believe it is inhumane to children to outlaw their sexuality and we support moves to lower the age of consent.25 
PIE proposed reducing the age of consent to age 4 years. Their motto was, ‘Sex before eight - before it’s too late.’ PIE produced a magazine, Understanding Paedophilia which contained articles written by psychologists. PIE was affiliated with the UK National Council for Civil Liberties and backed by the Campaign for Homosexual Equality. 26 The UK government gave PIE grants totalling at least £70,000 via the Home Office between 1977 and 1980.27 PIE membership exceeded 1,000 by the early 1980s to include judges, politicians, 28 scoutmasters, headteachers, diplomats, aristocrats, intelligence agents, and child protection experts. Notable PIE members were: 
 - Prime Minister Edward Heath (regularly attended PIE meetings in Westminster). 29 
- Richard Maurice Clive Bigham (son of Viscount Mersey, convicted of raping sisters aged six and 10). 30 
- Sir Peter Hayman (Senior Diplomat, British High Commissioner to Canada, Foreign Office Minister. In 1981, MP Geoffrey Dickens used Parliamentary privilege to expose information that Thatcher had suppressed: Hayman sent pornographic material through the post. Dickens consequently received death threats and was burgled). 31
 - Geoffrey Arthur Prime (British Intelligence Officer, Soviet spy, convicted in 1982 of raping three girls). 32 33 
- Peter Righton (PIE founder, UK’s most senior child social worker, scapegoat for entire VIP network). 
- Charles Napier (PIE treasurer, schoolteacher). 
 Moral Panic
  Peter Righton was charged and cautioned for raping a boy in 1960. In a 1981 publication, Perspectives on Paedophilia, Righton attacked the ‘moral panic’ over pedophilia, and said with ‘the child’s willing compliance…the sex is unlikely to do much harm.’ The UK’s top social worker and child protection expert, Righton served as Director of the National Children’s Bureau charity, Director of the National Institute for Social Work, and consultant for the National Children’s Bureau. In 1992, Peter Righton was convicted of possessing hard core child abuse porn obtained from Amsterdam. Police also found a diary containing ‘scores of boys’ whom investigators believed Righton had sexually abused. At the time of his arrest, Righton lived with his gay pedophile partner at the 2,500-acre estate of Lord John and Leslie Henniker-Major which operated as ‘an educational and recreational centre for children.’ London Borough of Islington sent children to the Henniker estate under a scheme  called The Islington Suffolk Project. Hundreds of Islington children holidayed at the Henniker estate since the 1970s. Islington was implicated in child trafficking. Jimmy Savile raped kids on Islington where 14 investigations revealed pedophiles operated all 24 children’s homes.34 The entire island was complicit in the abuse, such that victims refused to testify to internal investigators who ‘lost’ all files documenting child abuse on Islington.
  Operation Fairbank was established in 2012 to investigate allegations against Peter Righton and his connections. During the 1992 raids on Righton, police found 25 years of correspondence between Righton and pedophiles in Britain and around the world.35 Police found a letter from Charles Napier to Righton boasting of his life in Cairo as a British Council teacher, how Cairo was ‘full of boys, 98 per cent of them available,’ and how Napier could send child pornography to Britain in diplomatic bags.36 Charles Napier fled England for Cairo in 1972 after being banned from teaching in the UK for indecently assault pupils at a Surrey school. In 1995, Charles Napier was convicted of the historical rape of a boy. Police evidence included letters exchanged between Napier and Righton about the availability of boys in Sweden, plus a 1978 film showing Napier and Righton with boys in Sweden.
Elm Guest House 
Operation Fernbridge was an Operation Fairbank offshoot. It focused on, ‘Elm Guest House, south-west London, a gay brothel where VIP pedophiles preyed on young boys supplied from local care homes.’37 Rent boy candidates were identified from school magazine photos and forced into foster care by government social workers like Peter Righton. Multiple boy brothel victims identified VIP Elm Guest House clients including politicians, police, Royal family employees, British Intelligence, military, and pop stars. Cliff Richards obtained a high court injunction to prevent the media naming him as an Elm Guest House client codenamed ‘Kitty.’ The media instead named Cliff Richards for sexually assaulting a boy at Billy Graham’s 1985 Crusade in Sheffield, forcing him to relocate to pedophile-friendly Portugal (where Madeleine McCain disappeared). 
Multiple victims named Prime Minister Edward Heath and Home Secretary Leon Brittan as Elm Guest House clients. In November 1983, Geoffrey Dickens MP gave Leon Brittan a ‘massive’ dossier on child abuse containing specific allegations about a link between PIE and Buckingham Palace staff, Foreign Office staff, and the civil service. Dickens gave Brittan a second dossier in 1984 alleging child abuse in a children’s home and naming prominent pedophiles including a BBC TV executive. Leon Brittan investigated nothing – because he was one of them.
  Elm Guest House ran an advertisement in the Spartacus International Gay Guide pedophile magazine which offered a ‘10% Discount to Spartacus Club members.’ According  to Australian police detectives, ‘Spartacus’ was codename for an international underground pedophile network.38 Spartacus Club, part of the British-registered Spartacus International, was run by pedophile Catholic priest John Stamford, a PIE activist who fled the UK for Amsterdam where he published and managed the German Spartacus International Gay Guide. The magazine functioned as a shopping catalogue / tourist guidebook for international pedophiles who could arrange to meet up with the children advertised in the magazine. The Spartacus International Gay Guide was distributed to pedophiles travelling to ‘Europe, Mediterranean, America, Africa, Asia, Australasia, USSR.’ 
Clarence Osborne   
  Brisbane court stenographer Clarence Henry Howard-Osborne was Australia’s contact point for senior PIE figures including John Stamford.39 Osborne took photos of Brisbane children that appeared in German and English pedophile magazines including Spartacus International Gay Guide. Clarence Osborne organised for international pedophile tourists to meet up with Brisbane children whose photographs he had placed in the Spartacus International Gay Guide. 
In 1973, the Public Service Board conducted two secret inquiries into Clarence Osborne. Resultingly, Gough Whitlam’s ALP government transferred Clarence Osborne to the Hansard bureau at Parliament House in Canberra. (I was trafficked to a pedophile party held inside Parliament House during Clarence Osborne’s placement there.) Clarence Osborne committed suicide in 1979 after police raided his home:   
  [Police] discovered thousands of pictures of naked children, hundreds of hours of tape-recorded conversations with boys and a meticulously organised filing cabinet filled with index cards bearing the details of his victims, from their names, ages and addresses, to their physical measurements. It was later estimated that Osborne had been involved with more than 2500 under-aged males over a 20-year period… Incredibly, Osborne and his voluminous files were never thoroughly investigated by police. According to officers who viewed the Osborne material at the time, the names on the index cards, so dutifully recorded by Osborne, were not only those of the boys he had seduced, but adults – members of the judiciary, the legal profession, politicians, academics, and even police officers – with sexual interests in children. One former officer said the Osborne material was enough ‘to bring down the [then Queensland] government overnight.’ 40
Osborn shared his pedophile materials with Australia’s leading criminologist and ABC Radio regular Paul Wilson who wrote a book defending Clarence Osborne. 41 At the University of Queensland during the 1980s, Paul Wilson organised a pro-pedophilia conference and showed a child porn snuff film to his psychology class. Bond University published Paul Wilson’s pro-pedophile articles on their website, until Wilson was charged with historical child sexual assault. 
By the early 1980s the Osborne case had been all but forgotten, and many of the diminutive stenographer’s secrets were presumed lost with him. Except a retired Queensland police officer with a conscience and a phenomenal memory, who wanted to pursue Osborne at the time – and was warned off by senior officers, and who received a death threat after he pushed the pedophile investigation too far – only to be drummed out of the force, never forgot the case. And in breaking his silence, he would link Osborne to an international pedophile ring, and the child abuse scandal currently rocking Westminster in the UK.42 
  Jimmy Savile, who associated closely with prime ministers Edward Heath and Margaret Thatcher, was linked to the PIE child trafficking operation. Initial allegations against Saville were satanic ritual abuse in nature, but the press downgraded this to a ‘plain vanilla’ story. Pro-pedophile mouthpiece The Telegraph led the propaganda charge with quotes like: ‘Satanic ritual abuse does not exist, it’s like alien abduction.’43 The quoted female barrister advocated for lowering the age of consent to 13, not charging pedophiles with historical crimes because it was ‘too late.’ She employed the term ‘moral panic’ to dismiss victim testimony. Quoting a female pedophile defender is effective because the public do not realise how many females, including barristers, are involved in Luciferian pedophile cults. 
The ‘plain vanilla’ account pushed by UK media involved 13 police stations which gathered reports from 589 victims, 450 of whom claimed abuse by Savile. The abuse implicated the BBC and 32 government hospitals. A 2014 National Health Service report concluded, Savile raped public hospital patients over several decades, including children, adults, and dead bodies, with the knowledge and support of government authorities. Nurses felt so helpless to stop Savile, they warned hospitalised children to feign sleep to avoid Savile raping them during his late-night ward rounds. Savile even assaulted hospital staff and visitors. Further, politicians and civil servants appointed unqualified Jimmy Savile to run Broadmoor psychiatric unit where he boldly assaulted staff, raped patients, and invited high profile associates to watch women shower. To date the British Government has failed to explain how one grub wielded such influence and terror without the backing of Westminster pedophiles. 
Jimmy Savile was implicated in the abuse of children at tax/pedophile haven Jersey Island 44 where residents’ front yards proudly display statues of very young children performing oral sex on erect penises, plus a 12-foot statue of Satan as pedophile Pan. The  entire island population including police, judiciary, social services and journalists were complicit to the ritual rape, torture and murder of children at the island’s children’s home, Hart de la Garenne, where police found buried remains of multiple children, plus a kill room featuring shackles, a blood-stained concrete tub, lime bath, and incinerator full of children’s dismembered body parts. Senior police, including Scotland Yard, blocked investigations of most of the 151 perpetrators identified by 192 victims who made 1,776 statements. A few low-level staff were charged, while all VIPs and those accused of satanic ritual abuse, escaped police investigation. Anyone who tried to expose the Luciferian pedophile child trafficking operation were arrested or murdered, including Dyana, sister of Bill Maloney who produced a documentary, Sun, Sea and Satan about the ritual abuse the siblings experienced on Jersey Island.
  Prime Minister Edward Heath closely associated with Jimmy Savile whose nephew Guy Marsden testified that ‘Ted’ Heath sexually assault a boy at a London party. Edward Heath was also implicated in the rape and murder of Jersey Island children aboard his yacht.
 Silent UK Witnesses  
  British Intelligence and the BBC went to extreme lengths to plug any leaks regarding the VIP trafficking operation: 
- In 1978, the BBC banned pop star ‘Johnny Rotten’ for outing Saville as a pedophile during interview. 45 
- In 1996, the British government assassinated a Dunblane teacher and her entire primary school class following disclosures the children were being sex trafficked to the elite Westminster pedophile ring. Websites exposing the truth of the Dunblane Massacre were wiped off the internet. 
- In 1999, journalist Jill Dando was gunned down in a professional hit to stop her exposing the same VIP pedophile network on the BBC Crimewatch television program she hosted. 
Owing to the internet, the truth became more difficult for the UK government to supress. Here is a summary of notable newspaper articles that documented multiple police investigations into thousands of VIP pedophile allegations in the UK.   
 Jonathan Corke, Tony Bushby & Deborah Sherwood, Daily Star, 28 Oct 2012. - The British Royal Air Force flew rich and powerful European VIPs, including Belgians, to attend London pedophile orgies in the 1980s (via RAF Northolt located outside London). - Numerous boys were sex trafficked to rich and powerful men in the 1980s.
 - VIPs paid boy prostitutes to attend pedophile orgies at ‘millionaire properties’ in London and the Home Counties.   
  - A ‘network’ of boys, including runaways, were prostituted to the orgies.
- A teenage rent boy witness vanished just weeks after speaking to Met detectives. 
- The boy named VIP pedophiles including a living Tory Cabinet minister, judges, and senior civil servants. 
 - Met detectives received multiple pedophile allegations against the Cabinet minister. 
- Metropolitan Police ordered detectives to stop investigating the VIP pedophile ring. - A retired detective who worked on the case said: ‘It wasn’t that we ran out of leads, but it reached a point where a warning to stop came. It was a case of ‘get rid of everything, never say a word to anyone. It was made very clear to me that to continue asking questions would jeopardise my career.’ 
- The Tory Cabinet minister was never arrested. No one was charged over the rent-boy pedophile ring. 
 - Labor MP Tom Watson said case files from 20 years ago link pedophile Peter Righton to a Prime Minister. Watson knows of evidence linking a second pedophile ring to Parliament and the PM. Watson said the leads were not followed up, and he was contacted by someone claiming the police ‘held a vast quantity of material suggesting Jimmy Savile was a predatory pedophile.’ - Police conducted at least 7 investigations into Savile while he was alive – yet no charges were laid.
 - Scotland Yard investigated Savile in the 1980s over claims he attacked a girl in a caravan at London BBC TV Centre. 
- Metropolitan Police are currently investigating Jimmy Savile’s assault of 300 victims over 60 years. 
  Nick Sommerlad & Jack Blanchard, The Mirror, 22 July 2015. 
- A 1985 letter from MI5 head Sir Antony Duff to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher revealed two sources accused an unnamed senior Tory MP of having ‘a penchant for small boys.’
 - MI5 told Cabinet Secretary Sir Robert Armstrong he accepted the MP’s denials of the pedophile allegations, adding: ‘At the present stage... the risks of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger.’ 
- Pedophile documents link PM Thatcher’s parliamentary secretary Sir Peter Morrison, Home Secretary Leon Brittan, diplomat Sir Peter Hayman, and minister Sir William van Straubenzee. ‘
 Russell Myers, The Mirror, 4 Aug 2015.  
   Metropolitan, Wiltshire, Jersey and Kent police forces investigated pedophile allegations against PM Edward Heath.
  - The Met Police had been investigating Heath for almost 10 months. - A Scotland Yard inquiry, Operation Midland, investigated Heath as part of a 1970s - 80s VIP pedophile ring. 
- Wiltshire Police received ‘a number’ of fresh calls from Heath victims. 
- In the 1990s, a brothel keeper threatened to reveal in court that she had evidence PM Heath was a pedophile. Charges against her were dropped. 
- The Police force is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission for allegedly failing to investigate the brothel keeper’s evidence. 
- The NSPCC [the child abuse charity Jimmy Savile and Margaret Thatcher supported] has also been contacted by people claiming Heath sexually assaulted them. 
- A central police operation codenamed Hydrant collated all historical pedophile allegations involving VIPs. 
- Heath raped a 12-year-old runaway at his flat in Mayfair, Central London, in 1961. The victim made a detailed statement to lawyers. Social workers called the victim a ‘fantasist’ when he tried to report the rape. 
- Another man contacted Kent Police yesterday saying Heath raped him in the 1960s. ‘Detectives are making inquiries and will obtain a full account from the victim.’ 
- Jersey police said, ‘Heath is one of at least 13 “well known” politicians, celebrities and sports stars being looked at over decades of child abuse’ under Operation Whistle investigations of historical pedophilia. 
- Jimmy Savile frequented Jersey care home Haut de la Garenne. 
- Jersey Police’s Operation Whistle, launched in 2015, investigated 4 institutions, 45 suspects including 13 VIPs. 
 The Dutroux Affair  
 In the 1990s, Catholic Belgium became notorious for the Dutroux Affair, a 1990s child sex trafficking scandal implicating Belgian Royals, politicians, bankers, businessmen, police and lawyers. WikiLeaks dropped a ‘Dutroux dossier’ showing clientele from European countries, plus Morocco and Saudi Arabia, paid to rape trafficked Belgian children. Belgian victim Regina Louf said VIP clientele were secretly filmed without their knowledge as part of a human compromise operation, ‘It was big business - blackmail - there was a lot of money involved.’ 46 Belgian girls were kidnapped, caged, gang raped in pedophile orgies, and murdered for snuff films. They were tortured, ritually sacrificed, suffocating to death in holding cells, wrapped in plastic and buried alive, and killed for sexual pleasure. 
 Regina Louf was sold to the Belgian trafficking network by her wealthy grandmother, Cecile Beernaert, whose WW2 brothels serviced Nazi troops. Regina described being raped at sex orgies organised by businessman Jean Michel Nihoul who was later convicted of trafficking drugs and people into Belgium. Regina Louf and other Dutroux victims told police they were subjected to satanic ritual abuse and child hunts in which VIPs including Belgium Royalty hunted and murdered children for sport in locations including the grounds of Chimay Castle.   
  The Belgian government subsequently covered up the true nature of the Dutroux Affair. Evidence disappeared, numerous suspects were never investigated, and over 20 key witnesses were murdered.47 48 One witness was poisoned, and his wife incinerated in her bed.49 No VIPs were charged, and a few low-level scapegoats were prosecuted, including Marc Dutroux and his wife who received lengthy sentences for starving two eight-year-old girls to death in their cellar. RTBF, a government-owned TV station campaigned ‘to prove that Dutroux was an isolated pervert kidnapping girls for himself, that there was no network, that Jean Michel Nihoul was innocent, and Regina Louf was a liar.’50 VIP pedophile mouthpiece The Telegraph supported this angle from the UK. 51
In 1996, a massive 350,000 Belgian citizens protest marched against the VIP child trafficking operation. Belgian fire fighters protested by turning their hoses on the Belgian Parliamentary building. One third of Belgians surnamed Dutroux legally changed their family name. Yet this all this achieved nothing. 
 Belgian sex trafficking victim Anneke Lucas came forward in 2017 in the wake of Pedogate. Anneke’s mother sold her into sex slavery at age six years. For the next 5.5 years she was raped six hours per week by up to 200 pedophiles including Royalty. Anneke Lucas was subjected to torture, child murder, and satanic ritual abuse. From age six she attended weekly, late-night pedophile orgies held in mansions and castles during which she was ‘used for an S&M show, on a low stage, chained up with an iron dog collar, and made to eat human faeces.’ 52 Anneke said she and the other trafficked children were ‘made to commit violence’ against child victims so they felt too ‘implicated’ to inform police.   
  UK Prosecutes ‘Fantasist’ Victims for Whistleblowing 
The UK’s latest tactic to silence victims of government child trafficking is to prosecute them for reporting the crimes committed against them to the police. Their modus operandi involves the DPP charge the victim with perverting the course of justice, while the government-controlled media slander the victim as a ‘fantasist’ who fabricates witness testimony for the money. The UK government tried this on Ben Fellows, former UK child actor and Westminster sex trafficking victim. Ben Fellows said his agent Sylvia Young solicited him at age 14 years for sexual abuse by Tom Cruise. Fellows was subsequently targeted for false arrest and slander by the media who described the victim as ‘an inventive and sometimes persuasive fantasist.’ In 2015, the UK government unsuccessfully prosecuted Ben Fellows for perverting the course of justice for providing a 2012 police witness statement to Operation Fairbank. 53   
  Multiple victims who came forward and made police witness statements against elite UK pedophiles including Edward Heath were initially supported as ‘credible and true.’ In 2016, Westminster victim Darren Thornham used Twitter to warn of a coverup operation involving (a) a fake victim being planted to discredit the genuine ones, and (b) a cut-out media company (Exaro News) gathering testimonies from victims who were subsequently falsely arrested and murdered. Darren implicated Australian 60 Minutes journalist Ross Coulthart in an elaborate media rouse. According to Darren’s tweets, police beat him, threatened him with false arrest (for attending a 1992 rave at age 15 years with eight fellow trafficking victims) and threatened to raid and charge him for terror crimes along with victim Kevin Allen (brother of missing victim Martin Allen) whose family were also threatened. The UK media branded Darren a ‘fantasist’ after police charged him in 2016 for making false accusations against VIP pedophiles. Police eventually dropped the charges, according to Darren’s final twitter post:
Darren Press Statement – 17.11.17 
The false charge against me, which was downgraded from making hoax claims to wasting police time, has rightly been dropped. I have been subject to a terrifying ordeal of being attacked, stalked and threatened by individuals determined to get even with me for telling the truth about the sexual abuse I suffered as a child. The case has clearly shown serious misconduct by Suffolk police officers, who have ignored complex issues surrounding harassment and intimidation of myself. The case was part of an attempt by police and the wider establishment to silence me. 
I refute claims that I invented the allegations of child abuse committed by high profile offenders. On many occasions, the media have simply published lies as part of a campaign against me. Some media behaviour has bordered on harassment and bullying of a CSA survivor. I was especially saddened and shocked to see certain people who claim to be CSA survivors on social media, as well as certain journalists, vilify me. 
The last nine months since my arrest have been very difficult for me. It has led to my being on the verge of suicide on more than one occasion. It is only the support of people very close to me that I did not ultimately kill myself…    
Darren’s press statement inexplicably thanked the Exaro News journalist he criticised in numerous earlier tweets. Was Darren under duress? 
 Tavistock Psy-Op
  In 2019, after the UK government failed to prosecute high profile victims Ben Fellows and Darren Thornham, they made an example of a convicted pedophile who named Prime Minister Edward Heath plus the heads of MI5, MI6 and the Army, in a police witness statement. Nick was sentenced to 18 years prison – a disproportionate sentence compared  to the lenience granted to pedophiles – for perverting the course of justice. Social media agents spread the discourse that this action against Nick was justified because he himself is a convicted pedophile. The Telegraph vilified Nick as a ‘fantasist’ who fabricated his witness testimony to get compensation – as though by extension ALL victims of government child trafficking are fantasists. Was this the plant Darren Thornham warned of on Twitter? Nick was used to discredit and bury numerous witness testimonies against PM Edward Heath, including six different people who named Heath to police in SRA accusations. Nick’s prosecution was a Psychological Operation designed to sway public opinion, deter all other government child trafficking victims from making future police statements, and discredit the many Westminster VIP pedophiles reported to police 50 years before Nick’s prosecution. This one successful prosecution does not erase the following 1969 and 1989 police investigations into the sex trafficking of government care children to Westminster pedophiles: 
1. 1989 Police Investigation into Wales Boy Home Brothels Scallywag magazine was published between 1991 and 1998. Issue 22 (1994)  
  contained an article ‘LORD MCALPINE AND THE PEDOPHILE RING’ by Angus James which exposed the Bryn Alyn Community, a private company centred in Wrexham, Wales, which operated 11 children’s residential homes. The Bryn Alyn organisation was a front for a massive international child sex trafficking and pornography business managed by scapegoat John Allen who was eventually convicted of 33 counts of child rape against 19 children. Allen prostituted foster children to VIPs who attended boy brothel houses located all over the UK including London, Manchester, South Shields, Gloucestershire, Wrexham, Brighton, plus Bordeaux, France. He also hired rent boys for members of the Wrexham Golf Club to rape. Allen also operated a child porn empire including a branch in Amsterdam and a Wrexham film studio where foster children were used to make pornography. John Allen’s VIP clients included:
Lord Robert Alistair McAlpine (Treasurer, PM Margaret Thatcher’s Advisor. Formally cautioned in 1965 by Strathclyde police for committing a sexual offence against a child. He sued the media for outing him as a pedophile). 
- Gordon Anglesea (Police superintendent and notable Freemason. He sued two national newspapers in 1994 for printing crimes he was eventually convicted for. In 2016, he died six weeks into a 12-year prison sentence for violently raping two boys in the 1980s). 54 
- Lord Kenyon (North Wales Police Authority Chair). 
- Wyn Roberts (MP for Conway, minister for State at the Welsh Office). - Adam Mar-Jones (son of film critic Justice Jones).
 - Sgt. David Morgan. 
- PC David Rodgers. 
  - Michael Portillo (politician). 
- Peter Lilly (politician). 
- Lord David Steel (politician). 
In 1989, Detective Superintendent Ackerley collected over 1,500 witness statements during an internal police inquiry, yet his findings were buried, and key witnesses and investigators were physically assaulted. Alex Siddington (Welsh Coordinator for the National Association of Young people in Care) was beaten and had chemicals sprayed into his eyes. Gordon Anglesea’s rape victim and key witness Steven Messham was beaten twice. The local BBC journalist who investigated the case for 18 months was burgled in retaliation. 
2. 1969 Police Investigation into Rochedale Boy Home Brothels   
  Lord David Steele MP recently admitted to burying child abuse allegations that publicly emerged against politician Sir Cyril Smith in a 1979 Private Eye magazine. 55 In 1969, Lancashire police investigated Cyril Smith’s sexual assault of young boys in Rochedale care homes. The inquiry ended in 1970 when prosecutors falsely concluded they had insufficient evidence to prosecute Cyril Smith. MI5 knew the DPP lied to journalists about their decision not to charge Cyril Smith, but did nothing. 56 In Smile for the Camera: The Double Life of Cyril Smith (2014) Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk claimed Cyril Smith was allowed to continue abusing children as young as eight, after 144 victims’ complaints were submitted to authorities. This is not the extent of investigations into Westminster VIPs and UK children homes being used as VIP brothels. I will mention one more high profile due to its international trafficking relevance. 
 NAMBLA & Arthur C. Clarke  
  British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke co-wrote the screenplay for the 1968 predictive programming film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. In 1961, Julian Huxley’s UNESCO awarded Clarke the Kalinga Prize for popularising science. Clarke is famously quoted as saying, ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’ More significantly, Arthur C. Clarke was a gay pedophile who pioneered the Sri Lankan child sex tourism industry. The British Royals knighted Clarke just days after Sunday Mirror journalist Graham Johnson revealed Clarke admitted to having solicited young boys for sex. When Clarke subsequently denied this admission, the Sunday Mirror produced Clarke’s taped admission plus a secret document naming Clarke as a pedophile known to members of the NAMBLA (North American Boy Lovers Association) pedophile network.  
  US detectives, who arrested leaders of the [NAMBLA] association 10 years ago, say Clarke was named by other pedophiles they quizzed during an FBI investigation. The perverts had set up children's homes in Thailand as fronts for their sick activities.
One of its leaders was Jonathan Tampico, 48, a top nuclear scientist who worked for the American Government. He served two-and-a- half years in jail for molesting a boy of 12 and is now on the run with a million-dollar warrant on his head for further porn offences. He told detectives he had stayed at Clarke's home in Colombo and had swapped letters with the author. Another known pedophile, former church minister John Wakefield Cummings, 56, is serving a 24-years-to-life sentence after admitting molesting 17 boys in his care. He told police in Sacremento, California, that Clarke had been contacted at his Sri Lankan home by a pedophile who was on the run from the American authorities. In a sworn statement made to an investigator for Sacremento's district attorney…Wakefield Cummings told how the pervert fled to Sri Lanka where he was able to contact the pedophile community through Clarke. He then fled from Sri Lanka to Indonesia. Detectives contacted a child welfare group to warn them about Clarke's activities.57 
Arthur C. Clarke said in the notorious interview: ‘I am all in favour of efforts to stop [pedophilia]. But how do we stop it without interfering with the rights of responsible adults. I think most of the damage comes from the fuss made by hysterical parents afterwards. If the kids don't mind, fair enough.’ 
  In recent years Clarke's name has been linked with two notorious pedophiles, one of whom - a Swiss millionaire - was kicked out of Sri Lanka on the orders of the president for abusing impoverished beach boys. He is now awaiting trial in Zurich accused of sexually abusing up to 1,500 young boys and like Clarke was friends with a lot of Sri Lanka's top politicians, senior policemen and influential government figures. Clarke is said to have attended parties at the tycoon's home. When asked if he had, Clarke replied: ‘I may well have done. I mean the very first man I met here in 1954 was a pedophile and made no bones about it. He was in intelligence in the army, a fantastic guy.’ 58
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch stopped his UK newspaper News of the World from breaking the story that Arthur C. Clarke was a pedophile because he was friends with the pedophile. 59
 Coverup Tactics
  The UK government employed dirty tactics to cover-up the Westminster pedophile story. Similar tactics were implemented in Belgium, Australia and the USA: 
1. Label outspoken victims as liars, fantasists, and/or insane.
 2. Frame victims for false arrest for fabricated crimes.  
  3. Label concern about, and investigation of, pedophilia and ritual abuse crimes ‘Moral Panic’ or ‘Satanic Panic.’ 
 4. Label all inquiry into adult male pedophiles with a penchant for boys, ‘homophobia’ and an ‘abuse of human rights.’   
  The gay community must be proactive in distancing themselves from pedophiles who long ago equated the fight for gay rights with the fight for social and legal acceptance of pedophilia. Being gay does not automatically make a person a pedophile. Yet many equate being gay with being a pedophile thanks to PIE and NAMBLA members who aligned themselves with gay activist groups since the 1970s. NAMBLA participated in gay pride marches. US VIP trafficking victim David Shurter provided me with insight into this issue, and I hassled him to write a book about child trafficking and his experience and understanding of the gay lifestyle he lived. Shurter’s insights may help combat the trend where VIP pedophiles suddenly come out as gay in reaction to being accused of violently raping children. The tactic of masking pedophilia allegations with cries of ‘Homophobia!’ worked for decades in Australia, UK and the USA - until Kevin Spacey tried it mid MeToo movement. Note that PIE and NAMBLA never disbanded, they simply dove underground and employed more subtle ways of achieving their perceived right to rape children.
Aussie Banks:
 CIA Money Launderers As I write, Australia is in the process of two federal investigations, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse, and the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry. Only one of these investigations has shed any light on the global child trafficking network. On 5 April 2018, Nicole Rose, the newly appointed head of AUSTRAC (Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre) addressed the Australian media: 60 
  I thought coming from the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission that I had a pretty good handle on serious and organised crime side. I didn't appreciate the depth and breadth of involvement with private entities and banks. I didn't appreciate how many industries it does actually touch. There's a misperception that money laundering is a victimless white-collar crime that's probably just looking at tax avoidance - and it’s not. It is criminal entities using financial institutions here and nationally to move criminal funds around our country and our financial system overseas. And it has a massive impact on everyday life. Whether that's child exploitation, serious and organised crime, drug importation - it all involves money laundering.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) was subsequently fined $700 million for almost 54,000 breaches of anti-money laundering and counterterrorism financing laws, including the laundering of proceeds from child sex trafficking, and the channelling of these funds into overseas terrorist organisations. This massive criminal operation involved 27 different groups or cells, each of which accessed a CBA account. Each of the 27 accounts was used for money laundering by multiple, possibly hundreds, of criminals, with each individual depositing amounts of over $10,000 into the automatic tellers per sitting. Police obtained footage of people sitting at tellers at night with large bags of cash, patiently feeding notes into the IDMs (Intelligent Deposit Machines). 
About 80 percent of CBA-laundered money was obtained via drug trafficking, while the remaining 20 percent came from child sex trafficking (namely by Fijian nationals operating in far north Queensland). The CBA sting operation incorporated the biggest illicit drug bust in Australian history. This massive Perth, WA drug bust went unreported in the Australian media. And that is not all the government covered up. AUSTRAC cut short their investigation and action against the CBA because if they continued, the laundering operation was so massive the CBA would have run out of money paying the appropriate fines 
The most telling cover-up regarding the CBA case is that, while the CBA as an organisation was fined, law enforcement authorities never prosecuted the individual CBA employees identified as responsible for masterminding the laundering operation. Those offenders simply left the CBA to assume senior executive positions within other organisations. Police prosecutors claimed they had insufficient evidence to prosecute the executives, when they in fact possessed ample evidence. 
I suggest the true reason the DPP did not pursue the individuals responsible for these crimes is because the perpetrators were CIA agents, and the CBA money laundering operation was part of the CIA-coordinated global child and drug trafficking operation. 
As I write, Westpac and the NAB (National Australia Bank) are under AUSTRAC investigation for the very same crimes. 
ASIO, ANSTO & the Redress Scheme 
In 2018, the Australian government initiated a Redress Scheme where child abuse victims could apply for a maximum $150k compensation for being abused at the hands of one or more government and/or private institutions named as perpetrators to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Redress Scheme prevents victims from taking further action against the institutions. It is the responsibility of individual institutions to submit to the Redress Scheme. For instance, the Roman Catholic Church dioceses signed up, but the individual Catholic Orders including the Salesian Priests who operated Boys Town did not. Signing up is basically an admission of guilt on the institution’s part and indicates that victims reported that institution to the Child Abuse Royal Commission. Scrolling through the list of institutions who signed up to the redress scheme, my therapist and I were shocked to read the names ASIO and ANSTO. 
Babylon Will Fall  
  ‘Babylon’ is the Biblical name of the ‘great city that rules over the kings of the world’ (Rev. 17:18). Babylon was and is a global political, financial and religious power system that rules the world. It is the Black Network, the Octopus, the Illuminati, the Luciferian Order headed by the Rothschild dynasty, administered by pedophile government officials, and policed by the CIA, Mossad, ASIO and MI6. The Bible describes Babylon as follows: 
- The kings of the world have committed adultery with Babylon. (Rev 18:3) 
- The merchants of the world have grown rich because of Babylon’s desire for extravagant luxury. (18:3) 
- Babylon brewed a cup of terror for others. (18:6) - Babylon bought great quantities of human slaves. (18:11) 
- The merchants of the world became wealthy by selling human slaves to Babylon. (18:15) 
- Babylon’s merchants are the greatest in the world. (18:23) 
- Babylon deceived the nations with her sorceries. (18:23)
The ‘merchants’ are the world’s richest and most powerful merchant bankers who trade in ‘human slaves’ including child sex slaves. The ‘kings’ are the pedophile world leaders who are compromised via child prostitutes. The ‘cup of terror’ refers to the CIA created terror organisations being used to force countries to submit to Babylon. Revelation guarantees that Babylon will fall. The destruction of Babylon and her Luciferian pedophile associates will be quick and complete. My existence and endurance testify to this fact.

The Catalyst
My private session with the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse was scheduled for 3pm, 26 June 2013 at an inner Brisbane City hotel. My husband and I sat waiting in a hotel room when a young lawyer rushed in to greet us. Her arms cradled the 22-page written complaint I electronically submitted to the Commission, and remarked:
‘You’re obviously highly educated!’ ‘No,’ I corrected her.
‘I’m highly intelligent. I received an abysmal education. I taught myself everything I know.’
The lawyer led us into an adjacent hotel room where two commissioners stood to greet us. Federal court judge Jennifer Coate sat opposite me at a large round table. Child psychiatrist Helen Milroy sat to my right. The young female lawyer took her seat to my left. Judge Coate presided over our meeting. She began, ‘We’ve read your comprehensive submission. It’s good that you submitted this beforehand otherwise we would be spending the entire hearing relaying its contents. We gained the impression that your submission contains a selection of what you experienced and that you know a lot more.’
‘Yes,’ I agreed. ’There’s much more. I selected the incidents where I could best identify a time, date and place. I also compiled this -...’ With two hands, I purposefully placed a fat, well-organised folder on the table.’ It contains some evidence to back up my complaint. Sorry about the hand-written contents page. I would normally type and reference everything better than this, but I only had a few days’ notice that I would be attending today.’
The Australian public was given the impression that private sessions were a positive, cathartic experience where victims got to share their abuse in a supportive, nonjudgemental environment. My experience was different to that. The next two hours felt more akin to a cross examination. It seemed Judge Coate was looking for holes in my testimony.
‘That’s good!’ retired Tweed Heads Detective Frank Natoli exclaimed. ’It means they took you seriously. They were seeing how you’d hold up under cross examination.’ He concluded, ‘This Royal Commission is giving victims a false sense of hope. They won’t investigate their complaints.’
Detective Natoli was right. The first thing Judge Coate told me was, ‘Fiona, we’re not here to redress current victims’ complaints. We’re here to do something for future victims.’
But current victims ARE the future! I thought. This is nothing but a collect-and contain operation. A wave of determination washed over my being. I asked,  ‘What do you plan to do differently to avoid the pitfalls of the last child abuse royal commission?’
Judge Coate was taken aback. ’We’re just at the information gathering stage. We haven’t yet decided what we’re going to do next.’ ‘
I imagine you’re overwhelmed at the response so far.’
The three women collectively sighed. We spent the next two hours exploring three separate but related matters.
1. How the NSW Education Department and NSW Police conspired to bury a pedophile ring operating within my local Tweed Shire.
2. My experiences as a victim of an international child sex trafficking ring.
3. How dirty police, Australia’s Psychology Board, and Bond University conspired to simultaneously frame me as (a) an adult perpetrator instead of a child victim of my abuse (in which case my child abuse claims were true), and (b) psychotic because I said I was abused as a child (in which case my child abuse did not occur).
‘You’re obviously not psychotic,’ Professor Milroy observed. ‘Fiona, your submission was impressive and unique. What you wrote about Elizabeth Loftus and false memory syndrome: we weren’t aware of any of that beforehand.’
I reiterated the scientific invalidation of Loftus’ pro-pedophile writings that formed the basis of the previous Royal Commission’s dismissal of witness testimonies like mine. ‘God help me if I see Elizabeth Loftus in your report!’ I warned. ‘You need to stop universities teaching this rubbish. You need to stop health practitioners automatically labelling child abuse victims borderline personality disordered. That condition is often just a symptom of child abuse and it’s - . . .’
‘Recoverable?’ Milroy offered.
‘Y-yes,’ I stared at her like a stunned mullet. ‘The symptoms dissipate as the victim recovers her memories.’ I remounted my soapbox, ‘You need to stop the latest tactic being used against child abuse victims. They’re using a study which claims that child abuse victims are more likely to become perpetrators, as grounds for accusing victims of being perpetrators. They’ve already tried to frame me as a perpetrator based on being a victim – so you’d better nip that one in the bud!’
My right hemisphere rapidly scanned and analysed the words, body language, eye appearance and micro facial expressions of the three panel members, and drew its conclusion: Milroy – empathic, intelligent, genuine, eye single, trustworthy. So, when the hotel room turned a fuzzy white and voices became like a faint echo in a dark cave, I turned to Milroy, stared into her red teary eyes and confessed: ‘I’m dissociating.’
Hold it together, I told myself. You are here to give the children a voice. I continued, ‘Detective Bob Sullivan of the NSW child protection squad told me in 2005 that only a Royal Commission had the power to investigate the Tweed Shire pedophile ring. Well, we have a Royal Commission – so let’s investigate!’
‘Are you going to investigate my complaints?’ I persisted.
Judge Coate ignored me.
I seized the commissioner’s eye and demanded: ‘Yes or no! Do you have the power and authority to investigate my complaints?’
The commissioner squared her body to mine, smiled bemusedly and coolly responded, ‘Yes.’
‘Right! That’s one point. Secondly, is it within your terms of reference to make recommendations based on your investigations?’
‘Yes,’ she responded just as smoothly.
‘Right!’ I ran my finger across their collective presence and warned, ‘I’m holding you to that. Investigate my complaints!’
I shuffled through my folder of evidence and pulled out a document. ’I’ve included a newspaper article about my university lecturer who was recently charged with sexually assaulting two children. Bond University published his pro-pedophile writings on their website. It says here:
In his book Life of Crime,61 Professor Wilson said that in the ‘sizeable majority of incidents’ adolescents were sexually provocative. ‘My findings were remarkably similar to studies in California and Scandinavia which suggest child victims of adult sex offenders are generally willing or active participants, and that they not infrequently initiate the sexual relationship,’ he wrote.
The Commissioners gasped.
‘This is what students are being taught in our universities?’ I raised my voice. ’It’s not acceptable!’ My heart beat faster as I pulled out another document. ‘This is an email sent to me from Tor Neilsen saying he witnessed sixty children raped in the very same location where I witnessed the same people committing similar crimes! Tor and I independently reported our experiences to the police!’ My frustration peaked as I turned to another section of my folder and tore out an illustration of the Order of the Eagle ritual banner. ’Look!’ I thrust it at them. ’Look at this! I am the first person in the world to come forward and publish this! This was erected at every major pedophile ring meeting! Other victims out there must recognise this!’ I tossed the drawing on the table.
Finally, Jon spoke, ‘Let’s remember that there are victims who couldn’t be here today . . .’ his voice broke as tears welled in his eyes, ‘because they didn’t make it.’
More silence.
I continued, ‘I’ve put my neck on the line time and time again for others.’ I lowered my head and fought back tears as I uttered words that caused me immense pain. ‘I’ve never asked for anything for myself…’ I struggled to continue. ’But I’m asking you now – investigate my complaints.’
‘Fiona,’ Commissioner Milroy spoke softly and pointed to my folder of evidence, ‘first we have to read that.’
‘Fiona, you’re obviously highly intelligent - . . .’
‘So what?!’ I snapped. ’What’s the use of having intelligence when institutions continually prevent me from using it?! My life has been destroyed! They’ve continually ruined my finances, my health, my reputation - and now all prospects of employment!’ Silence.
‘Fiona,’ Judge Coat asked, ‘Do you have any final questions?’ ‘Yes,’ I wiped my tears and straightened my posture. ’What am I allowed to share with the public regarding what I experienced here today?’
The judge shifted awkwardly in her seat, ‘You can’t repeat anything you heard here.’
‘Show me the legislation.’
‘The legislation,’ my tone strengthened.
’Get me the legislation that states what you just said.’
The young lawyer’s eyes widened. She dove into a pile of folders. Minutes later she read out the relevant section.
‘Now,’ I told Judge Coate, ‘interpret that for me.’
Following Coate’s explanation, I sought clarification, ‘So, I own anything that I stated here and can share that with whoever I choose?’
Judge Coate nodded, ‘That is correct.’
‘But Fiona,’ Professor Milroy interjected, ‘you may be tested on how much what you say you said here indicates what we said.’
‘Thank you,’ I smiled. ’That was my next question.’ Oh sure, I thought. As if the Royal Commission will spend public funds prosecuting a victim instead of investigating her complaints. What a great national news headline that would make. ‘You’ll have to excuse my audacity,’ I offered, ‘but that is what has sustained me.’
‘Oh no, that’s fine,’ they all agreed.
It was time to go. I shook Milroy’s hand, peered deep into her brown eyes and expressed, ‘Thank you. I know you’re genuine.’
‘Fiona,’ Milroy implored, ‘keep making submissions.’
I mournfully shook my head, ‘What’s the use?’
I met Judge Coate’s handshake which was so firm I was reminded of the western ritual where men shake hands to establish dominance. I stared defiantly into her right eye and returned her grip with enough strength to make my point but without committing an offence.
As I exited the room, the panel members stretched, sighed heavily and exchanged looks which said, That was intense!
Jon and I had barely exited the room when he, grinning from ear to ear proudly exclaimed, ‘Oh, Fi! Milroy would have employed you on the spot! Well done!’
We were escorted into yet another hotel room where a government appointed psychologist waited to debrief me.
I engaged in half an hour of intellectual discussion before tiring of it. You must let yourself break, Fiona, my brain warned me. You need to feel the emotion before you leave.
‘They’re not going to do a thing,’ I complained. ’This is a whitewash! And I knew it would be. I knew not to get my hopes up. But still I did. A small part of me hoped that there would be justice for me. I’ve never asked for much -. . .’ I lowered my head as my whole being convulsed in emotional release. I wept sorely from some hidden chasm of despair. Minutes passed before I gathered myself enough to speak again. ’I just thought that maybe. . . just maybe. . . for once something might be done for me. But I was wrong. There’s a part of me, buried deep within that’s reserved solely for justice. That part of me opened today for the very first time, but it just got shut right back down again.’
I did not realise it at the time, but a poorly sutured invisible wound was tearing open. My session with the Royal Commission sparked a crazy chain reaction of events including going public, delivering a national press conference, re-entering intensive therapy, making police witness statements, speaking at an international conference, and writing this book.
Australian ‘Satanic Panic’
A tightly organised, mafia-style, hierarchically structured crime syndicate has infiltrated every aspect of Australian government and society including the judiciary, churches, law enforcement, military, child protection, hospitals, educational facilities, childcare centres, and Parliament. The network has numerous branches and countless members who profit from various illegal activities including drugs, arms and child sex trafficking. It is a well-oiled clandestine machine fuelled by public ignorance and distraction. Detecting members of this system and their tactics is like driving a new model of car: you suddenly notice all the other cars on the road of the same make and model. Ritual Abuse (aka: RA, Cult Abuse, Satanic Ritual Abuse, SRA) constitutes one facet of the child trafficking machine. The Australian media has reported on RA cases, although references are limited and difficult to locate. Reporting of these cases peaked in the mid1990s during the Wood Royal Commission.
Damage Control Psy-Op
The CIA adopted a multi-pronged approach to bury the epidemic of SRA reports and control the Australian narrative. Here is a summary of their tactics:
- Establish a bogus investigation, to gather and contain victims and their evidence. - Assassinate all network perpetrators who risked exposing the trafficking operation. - Focus the entire scandal on a handful of outed, now conveniently dead, scapegoats. - Muddy the waters by labelling the pursuit of pedophile crimes ‘homophobia’ and ‘moral panic.’ - Devise a bogus disorder to label and denigrate victims and their therapists with. - Conduct bogus research to support the bogus disorder. - Recruit dirty doctors and hired guns to defend the bogus disorder in the media and courtrooms. - Create derogative newspeak to mock, devalue and discredit victims and their witness testimony; e.g., ‘conspiracy theorist’ and ‘hysterical.’ - Recruit agent journalists to promote the cover-narrative in the mainstream media. - Support subsequent findings of bogus investigation with bogus disorder and research. - Have perpetrator academics teach the bogus research and bogus disorder in universities to perpetuate the lie, deter future therapists from understanding the truth, and forever conceal the child trafficking operation. - Restrict therapists from working with victims of extreme abuse, via new Health Board policy preventing such, and policing which targets dissident therapists for deregistration.
Pedophilia is NOT Homophobia
‘Homophobia’ is the propaganda angle the CIA chose to defend and bury allegations of government involvement in child sex trafficking. Hence the CIA-infiltrated Australian media subtly shifted reader focus from revelations of ritual abuse and VIP pedophilia – to accusations of ‘homophobia’ and minority rights violations. VIP pedophiles routinely ‘came out’ as gay to distract from child rape allegations.
‘Metaphor for Incest’
Early 1990s disclosures of ritual abuse and mind control were labelled a ‘metaphor for incest’ by Australia’s most recognised DID expert Warrick Middleton. ‘Metaphor for incest’ is precisely what Gold Coast Hospital head psychiatrist Dr Flanagan parroted at me in 1991. Flanagan and Middleton worked together for the Queensland Health Department. In 1995, journalist Richard Guilliatt quoted Middleton in his article which cast doubt over the validity of ritual abuse testimony:
‘I believe it is a metaphor,’ argues Dr Warwick Middleton, a Brisbane psychiatrist specialising in trauma. ‘It re-creates in the present a scenario that evokes the helplessness of the past.’ 62
Warrick Middleton failed to provide any scientific research to back his opinion that victims’ torturous PTSD flashbacks are merely metaphors. Metaphor is best treated by academia rather than psychiatry. Here is my critique of Guilliatt’s 1995 introduction of the CIA’s new narrative to discredit the wave of SRA reports:
Richard Guilliatt, Sydney Morning Herald, 1 February 1995.
In a bizarre modern phenomenon, hundreds of women are dredging up lost memories of childhood abuse involving blood, sex and devil worship. The accusations are criminal – but investigators have never proven a case of Satanic ritual abuse.
[Persuasive, misleading reporting. WA police proved and convicted a case of SRA in 1991. Sydney investigators actively buried SRA reports.]
By the late 1980s, this phenomenon had spread to both Europe and Australia, most notably with the ‘Mr Bubbles’ case in Sydney, when staff of the Seabeach Kindergarten in northern Sydney were arrested and accused of occult sexual abuse. Therapists, private investigators and police began telling the media this was a problem of great consequence, and a four-part report on Channel 10 in late 1990 prompted police to form a taskforce…
In Australia, the Mr Bubbles case collapsed from lack of evidence. Although the principal defendant in the Mr Bubbles case, Anthony Deren, later confessed to fondling adolescent girls earlier in his life, the evidence of occultism amounted to a handful of anti-Satanic books in his home and the fact that children at Seabeach chanted Ram-Sam-Sam, a common children’s song…
[Police sabotaged the case and omitted crucial evidence from court. The DPP prevented Professor Kim Oates (head of the Child Protection Unit at the Camperdown Children’s Hospital) testifying that his hospital staff found 5 children were sexually abused at Seabeach Kindergarten. The children reported Luciferian chanting, not ‘common’ harmless preschool songs as the journalist persuades the reader to conclude.]
Although Satanic abuse stories are not as common in Australia as in the US, one Sydney rape counsellor estimates from her contact with therapists that about 300 women in NSW are being treated for ritual abuse. That estimate is supported by the Herald’s own calls to ‘survivor’ groups, therapists and sexual assault workers. Phoenix Van Dyke, the organiser of the ritual abuse support group Beyond Survivors, says she has been in contact with more than 200 women who believe they are survivors. The Sydney Rape Crisis Centre has had more than 100 cases in recent years and one major Sydney hospital about 30
To believe these women, one would have to accept NSW has been permeated by brutal Satanic cults since at least the late `60s, a network of evil which has indulged in murder, prostitution, child pornography and other crimes without leaving evidence…
Ref: 62 Richard Guilliatt (1995). Therapy in Turmoil: The Memory Controversy. Sydney Morning Herald, 1 February.
[‘To believe’ is persuasive language. NSW Police buried the evidence, ambushed victims’ homes, removed kids from whistle-blowers.]
One middle-ground view of these stories is that satanic abuse ‘memories,’ although not literally true, may be a way for incest victims to symbolically represent the evil done to them. ‘I believe it is a metaphor,’ argues Dr Warwick Middleton, a Brisbane psychiatrist specialising in trauma. ‘It re-creates in the present a scenario that evokes the helplessness of the past.’
[Middleton presented subjective opinion and did not substantiate it with scientific evidence.]
But others are beginning to view Satanic ritual abuse as simply a form of mass hysteria sparked by a confluence of events in the early 1980s – growing public alarm about child abuse, the rise of support groups and alternative counselling, the influence of Christian fundamentalism in the US and the popularity of ‘confessional’ TV chat shows such as Oprah, which have given unquestioning coverage to stories of Satanism.
[Vague inference. There is no clarification of ‘others’ or their qualifications or associations. This is CIA propaganda aimed at swaying the reader’s opinion.] Therapists are now grappling with the vexed question of whether Satanic abuse survivors are mentally ill people suffering delusions, vulnerable people influenced by their therapists or actual incest victims who have wildly distorted their abuse. If the latter is true, how many of their memories are reliable, and how can a therapist possibly determine what is fact and what is fantasy?
Remarkably, however, this debate appears to be completely bypassing many of the therapists, child abuse workers and sexual assault counsellors who have banded together to combat ritual abuse. After years of exposure to abuse cases, these counsellors are adamant that there is nothing unbelievable about the vivid detail of the stories they are hearing, and many view the current debate as a ‘backlash’ against their cause.
[The journalist does not clarify how many and which ‘therapists’ he refers to, apart from Middleton who states an unproven opinion. He then introduces CIA concept that victims are ‘deluded,’ ‘fantasists,’ their memories ‘unreliable.’ He is using the NLP equivalent of writing, by repeating the word ‘unreliable.’]
Among some survivors and even therapists, the ‘backlash’ and the failure of police investigations are now cited as examples of the diabolical cleverness of Satanic cults, whose influence reputedly extends to the top of our society. ‘It’s very deliberately instigated by people who have an enormous amount to lose,’ says Janet. ‘I think it’s much more than a backlash … it’s actually orchestrated by ritual abuse perpetrators as a way of discrediting survivors.’
[Repeatedly placing quotation marks around the word ‘backlash’ is designed to persuade the reader to disagree with the professional’s testimony that she experienced a backlash.]
This view has been fuelled by allegations, currently under investigation, that NSW police have been bribed by pedophiles. One therapist claims to have seen infra-red Federal Police photographs of nocturnal forest rituals. A Child Protection Services official talks about covens meeting around Australia on certain days of the year. Even the official NSW Government booklet on ritual abuse – distributed to hundreds of health workers since 1993 – dismisses the growing body of contrary evidence as an example of society’s collective ‘denial.’
[The journalist’s choice of the word ‘fuelled’ is subjective persuasive writing, not objective news reporting. His placing quotation marks around the word ‘denial’ again persuades the reader to disbelieve the therapist’s witness testimony.]
Richard Guilliatt is still writing newspaper articles that subtly undermine the credibility of ritual abuse victims. His 2017 hit piece in The Australian targeted me.63 Wood Royal Commission The ‘investigation’ referred to in the above article was the Royal Commission into the New South Wales Police Service (aka, Wood Royal Commission) which operated from 13 May 1994 to 30 Jun 1997. Justice James Roland Wood was appointed commissioner. The purpose of the investigation was to examine allegations of systemic and entrenched corruption within the NSW Police, namely that police were protecting pedophiles, and that some police were themselves involved in pedophile activities and ritual abuse. The Wood Royal Commission was to specifically examine multiple allegations of Satanic Ritual Abuse at Sydney’s Seabeach Kindergarten.
The Wood Royal Commission was sparked by complaints from politician Diedre Grusovin regarding reports of a child trafficking network involving not just police, but politicians, churches, child welfare services, juvenile detention centres, the Education Department, media moguls, and entertainers. The trafficking operation involved the ritual abuse of children who were pimped to Kings Cross brothels. The following Legislative Council document (dated 10 October 1990, p.8046) recorded Grusovin’s complaint:
Ref: 63 Richard Guilliatt (2017). ‘Those Events Never Happened.’ The Australian, 30 September.
On 12th September Reverend the Hon. F.J. Nile asked a question regarding Satanism. The answer is as follows: 1. Yes. 2. No. The Hon. Deirdre Grusovin alluded to a network of pedophiles and said that established networks, such as Satanists, could also be involved in these practices. 3. I can assure the House that any allegations of child abuse or Satanism are and will continue to be thoroughly investigated by the New South Wales Police Service.
Wonderful Wollongong
Commissioner Wood chose Wollongong as his focus case because he had a big bloody mess to cover up:
For those whose memories do not extend back to the mid-1990s, Arena was a Labor politician in the NSW upper house, who gained national attention in 1996 when she named two people – retired judge David Yeldham and former state MP Frank Arkell – as potential pedophiles. At the time, a royal commission into the NSW Police Service headed by Justice James Wood was in full swing, but Arena and others believed it was not doing enough to look at people in high places. Along with fellow Labor MP Deirdre Grusovin, Arena promised to name at least two Sydney men in a parliamentary speech, and the next day asked why the commission had not investigated Yeldham or Arkell. 64
Ordinarily, such allegations would have been met with probably successful defamation actions, but Arena spoke with the protection of parliamentary privilege, protecting her from being sued. Her speech caused an uproar and both men denied being pedophiles. But before long, Yeldham was revealed to have lived a double life as a homosexual, and he took his own life on November 4, 1996. Arkell was horrifically murdered on June 26, 1998, a fortnight after another Illawarra man, David O’Hearn, was killed in equally brutal fashion in his Albion Park home. The perpetrator in both cases was a 19-year-old, Mark Valera, who claimed that both men had propositioned him sexually, and that he had been abused by his own father.
Frank Arkell (Wollongong mayor), David O’Hearn (Wollongong shopkeeper), and Trevor John Parkin were ritually murdered. Parkin and O’Hearn were disembowelled. O’Hearn was decapitated and his severed hand used to draw an inverted cross, pentagram, and the word ‘SATAN’ on his walls.65 Gareth Robinson:
Wollongong's daily newspaper has been having a look. The Illawarra Mercury has published a series of stories about the secret lives of some of the city fathers, stories about a child sex ring, about priests and teachers abusing trust. There have been claims of satanic abuse, none ever proven, [note the same subjective persuasive comment.] and a string of convictions in the courts…The line of inquiry into Wollongong itself runs long and deep. What was revealed at the Royal Commission goes back many years, to another Mayor. He was Tony Bevan, a pilot, property developer, and one-time owner of Bevan's Real Estate Agency… There were complaints that Tony Bevan was having sex with young boys… Tony Bevan, who was known to offer boys the thrill of a ride in the plane he flew on regular shark patrols. Victim: [Tony Bevan] started to take me up to the [Kings] Cross, which was during the week and every weekend.

These men were part of the Luciferian pedophile network that ritually abused and sex trafficked boys to the Kings Cross brothels. Incidentally, I witnessed children dropped by air into the shark infested waters to deter others from whistleblowing against the CIA trafficking network.
‘False Memory Syndrome’
In 1993, Dr Corydon Hammond, a professor at the University of Utah’s School of Medicine, conducted a seminar on federally funded mind control experiments. Topics covered by Hammond included brainwashing, post-hypnotic programming and the induction of multiple personalities by the CIA. Hammond contended that the cult underground has roots in Nazi Germany, and that the CIA’s cult mind control techniques were based upon those of Nazi scientists recruited by the CIA for Cold Warfare. (Researcher Lenny Lapon estimates in Mass Murderers in White Coats that 5,000 Nazis resettled in the US after WWII.) Hammond was forced to drop this line of inquiry by professional ridicule, especially from the CIA’s False Memory Syndrome Foundation, and a barrage of death threats. At a recent regional conference on ritual child abuse, he regretted that he could no longer speak on the theme of government mind control.66
MK-ULTRA child rapist and killer Martin Orne cofounded the False Memory Syndrome Foundation. The concept of ‘false memory’ was in fact the brainchild of Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, the US Army Intelligence Officer who headed Psychological Operations. In classic Psy-Op style, Aquino appeared on Oprah dressed in theatrical pop-satanism garb, to muddy the waters after multiple children identified him as a Luciferian pedophile. Aquino was implicated in every major USA case involving CIA child trafficking, ritual abuse and MKULTRA mind control, including the McMartin Preschool, Presidio Preschool, and Franklin scandals.
Aquino and Orne’s False Memory Syndrome Foundation (FMSF) and its Australian counterpart (AFMA) were formed specifically to counter the tidal wave of disclosure by victims of CIA child trafficking and Project MK-UKLTRA which began in the 1980s and peaked in the early 1990s before the CIA effectively shut it down. The FMSF Board comprised former CIA and military doctors with backgrounds in behaviour modification - not ritual abuse.67 All members were accused pedophiles and/or CIA perpetrators. Here are some facts about key False Memory associates

Destroyed patient medical file to prevent investigation into his over-prescription of drugs causing kidney failure.) - Retrospectively diagnosed father as mentally ill and so not responsible for throwing his 4-year-old off a bridge.71 (Criticised by presiding judge. Accused of concocting the evidence by MP who demanded the University of Melbourne sack him.) Jerome Gelb - Co-founded the AFMA in consultation with FMSF.
- Branded ‘mentally unstable’ after bringing a loaded handgun to court. A subsequent police raid found a cache of illegal weapons (800 rounds, guns, knives, cattle prod) stored in his home.72 Edward Ogden - Worked for the Victorian Police Force (who were outed by Dr Reina Michaelson as Luciferian pedophiles). - Said, ‘Mind-control is a fantasy of the Cold War.’ - Involved in various drug experiments. David Millikan - ‘Cult investigator’ who said, ‘only middle-class people join cults.’ - Worked for the ABC with Nevill Drury. - Co-authored ABC book with Drury promoting Christianity and New Age compatibility. - Drury was a Luciferian and Shaman who took LSD at the Esalen Institute. - Drury promoted Michael Aquino. - Drury wrote the only authoritative biography of Rosaleen Norton, the notorious 1950s-60s ‘Witch of Kings Cross’ who worshipped Pan, Hecate, Lilith and Lucifer, and practised Kundalini yoga, out-of-the-body trance exploration, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic sex magick.

Yolande Lucire - Demonstrated a Scientology approach to psychiatric medication. - Agreed to not administer psychiatric treatment to a Scientologist’s daughter who consequently killed her father. - Member Australia’s Cult Awareness Information Centre. Peter and Pamela Freyd were stepsiblings who married. They coined the term ‘false memory syndrome’ in response to being accused of sexually abusing their daughter Dr Jennifer Freyd, Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon, who outed them at a 1993 mental health conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan. On 17 April 1995, Peter Freyd’s brother William wrote an open letter to WGBH-Boston, criticising the TV station’s inexplicable bias in favour of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation
There is no doubt in my mind that there was severe abuse in the home of Peter and Pam…The False Memory Syndrome Foundation is a fraud designed to deny a reality that Peter and Pam have spent most of their lives trying to escape.73
Ralph Underwager was a founding FMSF member. In June 1991, Joseph Geraci, Editor-in-Chief of the pro-pedophilia publication, Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia interviewed Ralph Underwager in Amsterdam. During this interview, Geraci asked Underwager, ‘Is choosing pedophilia for you a responsible choice for the individual?’ Underwager responded:
Certainly, it is responsible. What I have been struck by as I have come to know more about and understand people who choose paedophilia is that they let themselves be too much defined by other people. That is usually an essentially negative definition. Pedophiles spend a lot of time and energy defending their choice. I don’t think that a pedophile needs to do that. Pedophiles can boldly and courageously affirm what they choose. They can say that what they want is to find the best way to love. I am also a theologian and as a theologian, I believe it is God’s will that there be closeness and intimacy, unity of the flesh, between people. A pedophile can say: ‘This closeness is possible for me within the choices that I’ve made.’ Pedophiles are too defensive. They go around saying, ‘You people out there are saying that what I choose is bad, that it’s no good. You’re putting me in prison, you’re doing all these terrible things to me. I have to define my love as being in some way or other illicit.’ What I think is that pedophiles can make the assertion that the pursuit of intimacy and love is what they choose. With boldness, they can say, ‘I believe this is in fact part of God’s will.’ They have the right to make these statements for themselves as personal choices. Now, whether or not they can persuade other people they are right is another matter. ‘Mr Bubbles’ Ritual Abuse Case Ralph Underwager gave crucial evidence in Australia’s notorious ‘Mr Bubbles’ case in which children were sexually and ritually abused while attending Sydney’s Seabeach Kindergarten. Underwager was interviewed by Australia’s 60 Minutes in an episode, Witness for Mr Bubbles, which aired 5 August 1990. Reporter Mike Munro stated: Six weeks ago (17 June 1990) we brought you a story that a number of people, including some in high places, wanted to keep secret: the case against Mr Bubbles. In that report, parents named Tony Deren as the man who had sexually assaulted their children. Deren’s wife ran the kindergarten they attended. Tonight, we investigate another crucial aspect of this disturbing case. You remember, police listed seventeen young victims, and more than fifty (54) criminal charges were eventually laid. But when the Mr Bubbles case went to court, not one of the children was called to give evidence. The charges were thrown out, and Tony Deren was set free. One of the key Deren witnesses was a hired gun from the United States, a psychologist named Ralph Underwager, who says he’s an expert in child sexual abuse. He testified that the children’s evidence had been contaminated, and they were too young to know what the truth was… This is Ralph Underwager, psychologist. He was paid $25,000 and gave crucial evidence in favour of Tony Deren; evidence which helped Deren walk free… Always the same story: three and four-yearolds being lured into bubble baths with a man who sexually abused them.
Professor Kim Oates: Having examined them, and talked with them, I’m absolutely convinced the children were sexually abused. Reporter: There’s absolutely no doubt? Oates: No doubt at all Reporter: That’s the evidence Professor Kim Oates wanted to give in court. But he was never asked. As head of the Child Protection Unit at the Camperdown Children’s Hospital in Sydney, he’s known around the world as an expert in detecting child sexual abuse. Reporter: So, we have 18 children who were examined, five of whom your staff say were definitely sexually abused, and all of them from the same preschool. What’s your reaction to that? Oates: Well, I think if you look at the incidence of significant child sexual abuse in the community, significant enough to lay physical findings in the preschool age group, I think it’s extraordinary. Reporter: This is Debbie’s medical report. Once again, it was positive; there was sexual abuse. Debbie’s mother: I was entirely spun out on that because I, at that point, had been trying to tell myself that, no, this wasn’t happening, it wasn’t true, who would interfere with my child. Another child (wasn’t identified): I put some things in his body, and he put some things in my body, but I didn’t want him to. Reporter: Cindy’s medical report confirms she was abused. The doctor found signs consistent with traumatic dilatation of the anus. Reporter: This is Boroko Court House, Port Moresby, New Guinea. In 1972, Deren was brought here, charged with the aggravated assault of two young girls. He’d interfered with them in a swimming pool. Something Deren admits. And both charges were proven. Reporter: There’s no doubt scores of questions remain unanswered in the Mr Bubbles case, and some of them relate to Ralph Underwager, the expert witness Tony Deren paid to testify on his behalf. Ralph Underwager was imperative to Tony Deren’s defence. As a supposed independent expert, he testified that the evidence of the Bubbles children had become contaminated. And, they were too young to understand their duty to tell the truth. But, here in America, we’ve certainly discovered Underwager’s reputation and credentials aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. Dr Anna Salter: Well, he is someone who makes his living going around the country and testifying against children in child sexual abuse cases. He says the same thing in essentially every case. Which is every… Reporter: And Anna Salter knows what she’s talking about. A PhD from Harvard, and a master’s degree in Early Childhood. She says young children can be believed. Dr Anna Salter: This is consistent with the literature. If you look at what is the best legal textbook in the country today on children as witnesses, ‘Child Witness: Theory and Practice,’ Malcolm Meyers says clearly children as young as three can comprehend the duty to tell the truth. Reporter: And this man is a highly respected legal scholar in America? Dr Anna Salter: I think he’s fairly clearly the chief leading scholar on child sexual abuse in the country. Reporter: Six American states have given Dr Salter a grant to check Underwager’s methods in court. And what did she find? Dr Anna Salter: That he isn’t accurate. That what he says in court does not necessarily fairly represent the literature. Reporter: He distorts the facts? Dr Anna Salter: Uh, frequently. Sometimes he quotes specific studies, and he’s frequently wrong about what the studies say. Reporter: So, we thought we’d get Dr Salter to analyse the evidence Underwager gave under oath at the Mr Bubbles hearing, where he testified his qualifications had never been questioned. But in an American case, the Swann case, this is what the courts said about Mr Underwager. Dr Anna Salter: The court remains convinced the psychologist did not have the qualifications to testify as a doctor. The trial court ruled that the psychologist’s proposed testimony was not proper because there was no indication that the results of the doctor’s work had been accepted in the scientific community. Reporter: In the Mr Bubbles case, he said his qualifications were never in question… Now, the second incident, in the Mr Bubbles case, was where Underwager said that 90 percent of accusations against child molesters are wrong. Now, is that backed up scientifically? Dr Anna Salter: No, that’s gobbledegook. I don’t know of any study that would support that… Reporter: Ralph Underwager was hired to defend Polly’s father. And as usual, he testified that nothing had happened. It was all a delusion, and Polly had simply made the whole story up. But then, Underwager was cross-examined by Polly’s lawyer, Eric Vaughan. Vaughan: He used the theory that it was a delusion of the child that she was doing a favour for the mother by saying this happened when it really didn’t happen, to gain the favour and to be the apple of the eye of the mother. Reporter: A delusion that she was continually raped over four days. Vaughan: That’s right. Reporter: The jury took only an hour to decide Polly Barnes was telling the truth, and that Ralph Underwager’s testimony that nothing had happened, could be ignored. In fact, Underwager’s evidence was rejected so much, the jury awarded Polly three and a quarter million dollars… So, while Underwager was being rejected here in America, he had no such trouble at the Mr Bubbles hearing in Australia where he testified that the children were too young to tell the truth…Ralph Underwager has testified for the defendants in about 400 child abuse cases.
Wood RC Cover-Up
The Royal Commission into the NSW Police Service Final Report was published on 1 May 1997. Three volumes of this report were devoted to pedophilia inquiries. Volume Four, Chapter 5 (pp.99 -116) were solely devoted to the subject of Ritual Abuse. At the end of this chapter, Commissioner James Wood concluded:
5.13 From a common sense perspective, while it must be recognised that apparently respectable and successful members of the community do commit child sexual abuse, a quantum leap in credibility is required to suppose that they would do so in the bizarre, ritualistic way described, which includes the infliction of serious, even fatal, injury and mutilation upon their own children.
 James Wood’s examination of Ritual Abuse amounted to a blatantly biased whitewashing. Wood devoted the entire content of Chapter 5 of his report to discrediting victims, parroting critics’ unscientific reasons for why Ritual Abuse does not exist in Australia, excluding the evidence for Ritual Abuse’s existence, and listing alternative possible reasons
– none scientifically evidenced
– for the epidemic of SRA reports in Australia.
James Wood’s list of alternative explanations included:
- Mental illness
- Substance abuse history
- Urban legend
- ‘Metaphor for incest’
- Lying to get compensation
- Exposure to ritual themes in books, film or television.
Concerning the last point, Forensic Psychology academics told my post graduate class the media do not influence people’s thinking and behaviour. Horror movies, violent video games and rock music do not influence people to commit heinous crimes. By contrast, Wood claimed film and television influence people to believe that heinous crimes have been perpetrated against them.
In his Final Report, Commissioner Wood said Ritual Abuse does not exist from a law enforcement perspective because:
1. Rarely, if ever, are bodies of the ‘victims’ or their graves found, nor do neighbours, friends or relatives report children missing in the numbers required to account for the allegations;
2. there is rarely, if ever, any evidence of the kind which can be confirmed by modern forensic technology;
3. signs of physical injury in the form of scarring, burns and the like, are not found upon medical examination of ‘victims’ who report torture of the most extreme and prolonged kind; more often than not the medical examination fails to confirm the abuse as alleged;
4. in cases of criminal conspiracy, inter-group jealousies or disputes inevitably develop and throw up an informant. In cases of RA, this rarely if ever occurs. Similarly, a co-conspirator who is otherwise in trouble, and prepared to supply information in return for an immunity or assistance in sentencing, rarely emerges;
5. again, contrary to experience with child sexual abuse generally, most of the offenders are reported to be females;
6. although many ‘victims’ claim that photographs are taken and videotapes made of the activity, visual records of the kind are rarely found, nor does the large amount of child pornography in circulation portray the bizarre and ritualistic activities described; and
7. so many people tell the same story and allege the involvement of so many others in the events that it is difficult to see how there could not be independent evidence, or knowledge of it on the part of persons outside the alleged rings.
Allow me to address James Wood’s seven points:
1a. Bodies and graves are indeed found. Police and doctors who are part of the trafficking Network write bogus reports to coverup the deaths. I witnessed Leonas Petrauskas write a fake death certificate saying a child was stung by a blue bottle, to cover Paul Keating’s crime. When I made a witness statement to Terry Frost at Tweed Heads Police, he said my accounts matched numerous ‘unsolved murders’ in the Sydney areas I named, and he would urgently send my statement to Sutherland detectives.
b. Most bodies are disposed of. I witnessed bodies being fed to dogs, cremated in factory furnaces, dissolved in chemical pools, and thrown from a helicopter into the ocean. Bodies are commonly fed to pigs (Paul Keating had a pig farm). I am sure you can think of a few other ways of disposing of dead bodies. Just watch TV for inspiration…
c. Most child murder victims are bred by cult members and slave breeders for the purpose of ritual sacrifice. Their births are never registered. Many children are legally stolen from parents via Child Protective Services. Thousands of babies were stolen from ‘unfit’ mothers and ‘adopted.’ Many children are trafficked by pedophile parents, and when the innocent parents find out and report the matter to police, dirty cops write bogus reports against the innocent parents who subsequently lose custody of the child victims. I later received a call from a lawyer who told me the Sutherland detective in charge of my case covered up the sex trafficking of her client’s son in this manner.
d. My cult grandparents’ neighbour who resided at 12 McAlister Ave was also a cult member. His obese wife ‘committed suicide’ after she had a nervous breakdown following the multiple ‘cot deaths’ of her young children. I witnessed one of these ‘cot deaths’ when I was five years old. The preschool boy was ritually sacrificed by the neighbour and my step-grandfather in the front room of the neighbour’s house. Leonas Petrauskas wrote the death certificate.
2. Again, there certainly is evidence. Network members in positions of authority routinely fabricate circumstances surrounding victims’ deaths. Doctors and police routinely falsify death certificates and police reports. Take for example the 1986 murder of Sallie-Anne Huckstepp by dirty cop Roger Rogerson who protected the Sydney child trafficking operation that James Wood investigated. Sallie-Anne was writing an article about the Sydney child trafficking network when Rogerson’s contract on her was fulfilled. Sallie-Anne was found dead in Sydney’s Centennial park. The usual police coroner was not on duty the day police were called to Sallie-Anne’s body. The substitute officer arrived and was instructed to record the death as suicide by drowning in a pond. The honest police officer noted struggle marks on Sallie-Anne’s arms and wrote the death up as suspicious. This led to an investigation during which the officer gave what he thought was a confidential testimony; however, by the time he arrived back at his station, everyone knew what he had just said. He was consequently victimised, traumatised, and transferred 1000 kilometres away to Murwillumbah police station. Yet NSW police continued to hound the man; they raided his home multiple times in search of grounds for charging him - such as a pencil taken from work. The clean cop was forced to retire from the police force. He withdrew to a farm out the back of Mount Warning and never recovered from the trauma of what the corrupt NSW cops did to him. So, if that is what accidentally emerged because a good cop happened to be on duty on the wrong day, imagine what convicted murderer Roger Rogerson’s minions routinely covered up every other day?
3a. As part of their Order of the Illuminati practises, bloodline victims like me must not be physically flawed or scarred, and sacrifices must be without blemish. My abusers were experts at administering torture techniques, including electrocution, that do not leave physical evidence. It is possible to beat someone in the gut through a phone book to hide superficial evidence of the beating, a traditional police method. #b. Some victims do carry scars, but police and medical staff do not believe victim accounts of how these were acquired. DID victim Jennifer Haynes (who made history when her dissociative parts were granted permission to testify in court) appeared on 60 Minutes (26 May 2019) to discuss her horrific child abuse. Her physical scarring is so severe she wears a colostomy bag and can never have children. Yet her testimony was ‘consistently faced with ridicule and disbelief.’ (Note that during the initial show trailer, Jennifer mentioned being subjected to ‘ritual abuse’ – yet 60 Minutes subsequently edited this out of the broadcasted episode.)
c. Any leakage of physical evidence is routinely covered up. I accidentally suffocated during a ritual and was transported to Sutherland Hospital for resuscitation. To cover for the incident, my perpetrators told hospital staff one of the cult members was my mother, and duped medical staff release me into her care.
4. The notion that an informant would voluntarily step forward is the most ridiculous point on James Wood’s list. Like the mafia, pedophile ring membership is a life-long commitment. As the famous Hotel California song says, ‘You can check out any time you like but you can never leave.’ At six years of age, deep in the National Park, I witnessed the fate of a ‘traitor’ who tried to leave the pedophile ring. Each of the man’s four limbs was tied to a different vehicle. The four vehicles then accelerated in opposite directions. I certainly was reluctant to talk after being made to watch that.
5. I witnessed male and female ritual abuse perpetrators, and believe me, the women were as debauched as the men. However, a disproportionate number of men were involved in my abuse, and in the abuse of the numerous other ritual abuse victims who contacted me. #
6. As for Wood’s reference to an alleged lack of videotape and other evidence, consider the 2004 disappearance of the video evidence that Dr Reina Michaelson submitted to the Victorian Police Commissioner. The video footage featured men in Victorian Police uniform raping preschool children at a Mornington Peninsula childcare centre. The video footage ‘disappeared’ in police custody. Reina told me she was subsequently slapped with a ‘D-Notice’ on the grounds that what she knew about the government’s involvement in child trafficking could undermine the public’s confidence in the government.
7. When examining ritual abuse from a law enforcement perspective, James Wood ignored the following ritual abuse case which preceded his ‘investigation’ by three years
CHILD SEX ABUSE LINKED WITH SATANISM: POLICE David Humphries, Sydney Morning Herald, 13 March 1991.
PERTH: Perth police say they have proved a link between organised child sex abuse and devil worship, following the conviction on Monday of a young man on 22 charges of indecent assault and dealing and of evil intent. The head of WA’s child sex abuse unit, Detective-Sergeant Roger Smart, said the conviction of Scott Brian Gozenton demonstrated the link. Satanic practices ‘and the associated abuse perpetrated on children is prevalent in the United States and Britain and no-one can now doubt that the link can be made here,’ Sergeant Smart said.
Gozenton, 20, pleaded guilty to all charges and was remanded until April 5 for sentencing after the District Court was told that 13 witchcraft covens operated in Perth. Judge Kennedy was told that Gozenton had been a victim of sex abuse as an eight-year-old and had been recruited as a teenager into a satanic cult where adults practised bizarre sex with each other, their own children and teenage recruits. The more bizarre and perverse the orgies, the closer cult members felt to the Devil, Gozenton’s barrister, Mr Mark Trowell, said. ‘The real villains are those individuals who visited their perversity on this young man,’ Mr Trowell said. Gozenton was a tragic result of sexual abuse perpetrated by a school caretaker against himself and six other boys for three years. Shame prevented him from revealing his ‘terrible secret’ and he became introverted, rebellious and distant from his parents. ‘At the age of 14, he was approached by a school chum about a new family where rebellion was encouraged and someone like this young man could get a sense of belonging,’ Mr Trowell said. He said the coven was attended by about 20 adults of both sexes, their young children and the teenage recruits. Rituals were both homosexual and heterosexual, he said.
His client had recognised cult members at earlier hearings but had refused to identify them for fear of reprisals, Mr Trowell said. ‘These evil people kept this young man under their spell and direction for four years while these offences against him were committed. He…was instructed to establish a junior coven for the purpose of recruiting junior members from school and the Scout group with which he was associated.’
Mr Trowell said the initiation rituals mostly involved touching of genitals and, apart from three charges of oral sex were ‘not unduly perverse.’ The evil design charges related to attempts to recruit others into the cult, where Gozenton had the code name of Death. He said Gozenton had been seeking to extricate himself from the satanists, established a stable relationship with a woman and improved relations with his parents and did not deserve a jail sentence.
Mr Chris Drew, for the Crown, said the charges against Gozenton were ‘extremely serious’ and that jail was the only option available.

The Devil Made Me Do It
Royal Commissioner James Wood also ignored the Australian 60 Minutes episode that aired in the late 1980s called, The Devil Made Me Do It. It aired one year after an episode, Satan’s Children, in which a 15-year-old English girl Teresa detailed her experience of Ritual Abuse. Reporter Ian Leslie presented both episodes. The Devil Made Me Do It involved a discussion panel including Senator Fred Nile plus two former coven pedophile ring members, a young man from Sydney and a young woman from Adelaide. The Adelaide woman was under police investigation for her involvement in criminal activities (including the ritual murder of babies) which, she said, were committed on campus by a coven comprised of University of Adelaide staff and students.
Elizabeth Loftus
Royal Commissioner James Wood used the gangrenous writings of CIA psychologist Elizabeth Loftus to dismiss multiple witness accounts of organised pedophilia and ritual abuse. Wood’s Final Report referenced Loftus’ 1994 book, The Myth of Repressed Memory: False Memories and Allegations of Sexual Abuse, to support his conclusions:
a. ‘False memories’ of Ritual Abuse can be artificially created as a result of third person suggestion, b. A victim of Ritual Abuse can’t experience dissociation and repression of traumatic memories, and c. Ritual Abuse victims are female ‘attention-seeking’ hypochondriacs whose flashbacks may be attributed to overly zealous female therapists.
Loftus’ 1994 book was not a scientifically conducted, peer reviewed research publication. It was just a book.
At the time of her 1994 book release, Loftus had published one study relevant to her ‘false memory’ theory, an experiment which examined university students’ memory for films of car accidents.74
In 1995, Loftus co-published the notorious Lost in a Shopping Mall study.75 76 77 78 79 Loftus’ assigned University of Washington postgraduate student James Coan as chief co-investigator for her mall study. Subjects’ family members were asked to provide James Coan with three true childhood stories about the subjects, and to describe a typical family shopping trip. Based on the shopping trip descriptions, a false story was created for each subject about getting lost as a child during a shopping trip. Subjects were told their family members said the events ‘had happened.’ The subjects were asked to repeat the stories and to try and remember more details. Finally, the subjects were told that one of the memories was false and asked to choose the false memory.
Elizabeth Loftus conducted and published this research before receiving ethical approval for the study. Loftus added a second interview plus another evaluation scale to the research protocol long after the study was approved on 10 August 1992.
James Coan reported in his 1993 honors thesis that only 6/24 subjects completed the study, and zero subjects created a false memory.80 81 Crook and Dean (1999) analysed Loftus’ data and discovered only 2/24 subjects likely completed the study.82 First year psychology students are taught, a minimum of n=10 subjects is required for valid statistical analysis. So, Loftus blatantly lied when she reported: ‘Of the 24 total, 19 subjects correctly chose the getting-lost memory as the false one, while the remaining five incorrectly thought that one of the true events was the false one… These findings reveal that people can be led to believe that entire events happened to them after suggestions to that effect.’ 83
The raw data from the shopping mall study were subpoenaed by defence attorneys in Burgus v. Braun. Loftus successfully obtained a gag order for her fraudulent data. The case settled on 31 October 1997 and the data returned to Loftus.
Elizabeth Loftus published another lab experiment in 1996.84 This examined, ‘whether imagining events from one’s past can affect memory for childhood events.’ A total of 38 undergraduate psychology students (young female university students studying the same course) participated in the study for course credit. Loftus asked the students to imagine described events such as tripping over or falling through a window.
The characteristics of Elizabeth Loftus’ samples made it inappropriate for her to generalise findings from her studies to the population at large. And yet Loftus drew conclusions from these severely flawed studies about the reliability of child abuse memories, and the possibility that a parent or therapist could create false memories of child abuse in a person who has experienced trauma of the most severe kind. Loftus basically equated a psychology student’s experience of watching a car crash film or imagining themselves falling over – with real life accounts of being systematically raped and tortured throughout one’s development. That is beyond preposterous. 
Elizabeth Loftus’ conclusions failed to hold up under cross examination.
In 1994, Lynn Crook successfully sued Loftus. Lawyer Barbara Jo Levy asked Loftus, ‘If you are asked to testify about your experiments of implanting false memories, would you use those first six?’ Loftus replied, ‘No, I don’t think I will use the first six’ (Transcript, p.61).
In December 1995, two women filed ethics complaints against Elizabeth Loftus with the American Psychological Association, claiming she had misrepresented their successful recalled-memory lawsuits to the media. Loftus resigned from the APA in January 1996, so the APA dropped their investigation.

A Washington Post article entitled, In the Sharon Case, a Grilling to Remember (27 October 2006) described a damning cross examination of Elizabeth Loftus:
But when Fitzgerald got his chance to cross-examine Loftus about her findings, he had her stuttering to explain her own writings and back pedalling from her earlier assertions. Citing several of her publications, footnotes and the work of her peers, Fitzgerald got Loftus to acknowledge that the methodology she had used at times in her long academic career was not that scientific, that her conclusions about memory were conflicting, and that she had exaggerated a figure and a statement from her survey of D.C. jurors that favoured the defence.
In 2003, Nicole Tau successfully sued Loftus for invasion of privacy. At age six years, during a videotaped interview by a medical doctor, Tau had accused her mother of child abuse. Tau subsequently forgot her abuse but spontaneously recalled it at age 17 years. Corwin and Olafson (1997) published an article about the case, favouring the notion that repressed memory of childhood abuse can be recalled. Elizabeth Loftus set out to discredit Tau by hiring a private investigator to locate Tau. The PI lied to Tau’s family by pretended to be Corwin’s research assistant. Loftus subsequently published an article based on the PI’s interviews with Tau’s family in which she identified Tau as a victim of crime. Tau filed an ethics complaint against Loftus in 1999 with the University of Washington who upheld the complaint.
During a 2013 TED Talk about memory, Loftus intentionally misrepresented the basic facts of Nicole Tau’s case by saying it was about a ‘woman’ who ‘accused her mother of sexual abuse based on a repressed memory.’ Loftus knowingly omitted crucial facts of the case: that Tau was six years old when she made the report, then forgot the memory, and then spontaneously and accurately recalled the memory 11 years later at age 17 years.
CIA Infiltrated Australian Therapy Industry
A 1994 FMS newsletter documented the influence the CIA pedophiles had on Australian therapists. The following is a letter to the FMA from Jerome Gelb (the psychiatrist who took a loaded handgun to court):
The Australian False Memory Association has now been formally organized. The links between the AFMA and Australian professionals seem strong and the fact that the Australian Psychological Society has already established guidelines for recovered memory situations indicates a positive and determined approach by professionals to deal with the problem. A letter from Dr Jerome Gelb, a psychiatrist in Australia, affirms this optimism. He states, ‘I am writing to keep you up to date with events in Australia regarding FMS and Recovered Memory Therapy. Australian Psychiatrists are, apart from very few exceptions, fully aware of the iatrogenesis of so-called repressed memories, MPD and Satanic Abuse. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists has been helpful in publishing on the issue.’ Dr Gelb mentioned the television and newspaper articles that have recently appeared in Australia noting that they understand the iatrogenic nature of some memories. Dr Gelb said that he had published a detailed letter to the Editor in the December 1994 RANZCP Journal of Psychiatry and that the journal of Australasian Psychiatry, Vol 2, No 4, August 1994, pp 179-180 had published his article, ‘Reality Revisited.’ Dr Gelb went on to write that, ‘I feel that public opinion in Australia is supportive and the media is also. Most importantly, Australian Psychiatrists are almost universally wary of American therapy fads and are highly critical of poorly trained therapists and the inappropriate use of suggestion, persuasion and memory recovery techniques of all kinds. Please let your membership know of these developments.’ 85
CIA-Dictated APS Recovered Memory Guidelines
The APS Guidelines Relating to Recovered Memories were introduced on 27 October 1994. According to the 1994 US FMS newsletter, the APS Guidelines Relating to Recovered Memories were adapted from a book written by MK-ULTRA hypnosis researchers Australian Peter W. Sheehan and Kevin M. McConkey which was based on their hypnosis research. 86 Peter Sheehan and Kevin McConkey both conducted hypnosis research with MK-ULTRA psychiatrist Martin T. Orne. 87 Kevin McConkey was the current APS President, and his hypnosis book was currently in press, when the APS introduced their Guidelines Relating to Recovered Memories that he co-authored. Here are the key points from APS Guidelines Relating to Recovered Memories that stopped Australian psychologists acknowledging the existence of ritual abuse and mind control, and treating victims of extreme abuse, for the following 25 years:
- Memories can be altered, deleted, and created by events that occur during and after the time of encoding, and during the period of storage, and during any attempts at retrieval.
- Although some clinical observations support the notion of repressed memories, empirical research on memories generally does not. Moreover, the scientific evidence does not allow general statements to be made about any relationship between trauma and memory.
- The available scientific and clinical evidence does not allow accurate, inaccurate, and fabricated memories to be distinguished in the absence of independent corroboration.
- Assumptions that adult problems may or may not be associated with repressed memories from childhood can’t be sustained by available scientific evidence.
- Psychologists should be alert to the role that they may play in creating or shaping false memories.
- Psychologists should seek to meet the needs of clients who report memories of abuse and should do this quite apart from the truth or falsity of those reports.
- Psychologists should explore with the client the meaning and implications of the memory for the client, rather than focus solely on the content of the reported memory. - Psychologists should be aware that research is needed to understand more about trauma-related memory, techniques to enhance memory, and techniques to deal effectively with childhood sexual abuse.

Allow me to place things into perspective – the men who wrote these APS Guidelines trained under Martin Orne who, according to US Congressional witness testimony, raped, tortured and murdered children in name of national security and psychological research.
Here is my retort to the above points:
- There is zero scientific evidence to support the claim that mainstream therapists can create false memories. Only MK-ULTRA doctors possess the knowledge and military technology to radically alter memory. Memories can only be deleted during and after encoding using unethical hypnosis, illicit drugs, torture, and cutting-edge medical procedures.
- ‘False memory syndrome’ is not a recognised mental health condition, has no clinical history or symptomology (when Repressed Memory has both) and does not feature in the DSM.
- A range of studies using various methodologies across cultures support a causal relationship between trauma and dissociation (alterations in memory and identity). One research team found, ‘strong empirical support for the hypothesis that trauma causes dissociation, and that dissociation remains related to trauma history when fantasy proneness is controlled. We find little support for the hypothesis that the dissociation-trauma relationship is due to fantasy proneness or confabulated memories of trauma.’ 88
- The APS basically ruled that unless the therapist can find a third-party witness to the abuse, they should not work with - or even acknowledge as substantially true - the client’s abuse memories. The APS should apply the same rule for every experience a client brings to therapy, otherwise that is discrimination. Courts consider an individual’s witness testimony a form of evidence, yet the APS does not. Perpetrators are adept at concealing their crimes and eliminating witnesses, a fact the APS ignores.
- Genuine belief in a client’s testimony is essential for establishing rapport and eliciting client trust. Therapists can’t possibly meet the therapeutic needs of victims of extreme abuse unless they believe and understand the abuse account. A client will only trust enough to disclose their abuse details and therefore integrate only when they perceive the therapist sincerely believes them. Empathy and belief can’t be feigned at hypervigilant high IQ victims.
- Victims will never process and heal from extreme childhood abuse unless therapy focusses on the actual abuse memory including the thoughts and feelings experienced during the childhood trauma incident, instead of what the adult victim presently thinks and feels about their memories of extreme abuse.
Loftus Legacy
Elizabeth Loftus was discredited, professionally disciplined, and sued in the USA for her blatant lack of ethical conduct and unscientific methodology. Yet her unproven opinion regarding memory (a) was the basis for Royal Commissioner James Wood’s dismissal of multiple independent reports of Ritual Abuse; (b) provides the Australian blueprint for dismissing the nature and existence of extreme child abuse within mental health, education, and forensics; and (c) underpins all psychology teaching and educational texts in Australia. Most Australian psychology textbooks are American imports; mine were. A 2014 study examined three undergraduate psychology textbooks and found all three concluded that child abuse memories are likely false.89 All three textbooks referenced Loftus’ writings. Owing to this unfounded and illogical embracement of Loftus’ opinion:
- Australian universities and educational materials teach psychology students that most child abuse memories are false, repressed trauma memories are particularly unreliable.
- Regulatory bodies deter psychologists from acknowledging the validity of repressed child abuse memories and working with implicit trauma memories.
- Australian psychology students receive no training in the Trauma Model approach. - Australian therapists receive zero training in recognising or treating ritual abuse and mind control.
- NSW Victims of Crime counselling services forbade the use of scientifically validated, effective tools like EMDR for processing implicit abuse memories (until I publicly accused them of withholding treatment). A therapist can only use EMDR if they tape the sessions; yet this is not required for other, less effective treatment modalities.
- University criminology lecturers do not teach future Australian law enforcement officials that child trafficking is run as a single, integrated global operation.
Failed Wood Royal Commission
During a 1997 parliamentary hearing, Senator Fred Nile addressed the Mr Bubbles case and the Wood Royal Commission’s mishandling of it as follows:
The Hon F Nile: I seek the indulgence of the Attorney General. I wish to ask him a question without notice. Why did the children who attended the Seabeach Kindergarten, of the Mr Bubbles case notoriety, receive more than $500,000 compensation? How is it possible that the Government of New South Wales, through the Victims Compensation Fund, is able to pay compensation to the children who were at the Seabeach Kindergarten even though the Wood Royal Commission refused to make any findings about the case and the Director of Public Prosecutions was unable to successfully prosecute the perpetrators of the alleged assaults?
Government officials subsequently deemed the Wood Royal Commission a ‘failure.’ In May 2002, the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs conducted an inquiry into crime in the community. An excerpt from Volume Two of their Report (published August 2004) reads:
Almost immediately, the Committee received substantial submissions covering all aspects of the Inquiry. From New South Wales came very serious allegations of corruption in New South Wales policing, including allegations of protection of pedophiles, ‘doctoring’ of police statistics, corruption of the newly introduced promotions system for duty officers, the failure of the Wood Royal Commission and the systemic failure of bodies set up to investigate such issues. Instead of being applauded for seeking remedies, the whistle-blowers received punitive treatment…
Subsequent Cases
Reports of organised pedophilia and ritual abuse continued to surface in multiple locations around Australia, following the failed Wood Royal Commission and the subsequently established Police Integrity Commission also headed by James Wood. Here are some case examples:
1. Brisbane ABC, CJC Pedo Network Senator Bill Heffernan stated in the Australian House of Parliament (29 May 1998):
Recently I made a speech in which I highlighted the code of silence which protects worldwide child sex networks; in particular, Australian pedophile networks. These networks include people in the judiciary, parliament, clergy and the Public Service. Many of these people live in an abhorrent culture in which is included as a ‘spoils of office’ the right to have sex with children.
These people put themselves at continual risk of serious compromise in their workplaces as perpetrators, as too do those people who knowingly ignore or turn a blind eye to this ultimate betrayal of our children. Honourable senators should be concerned at recent developments involving the Criminal Justice Commission, the body set up to investigate official corruption in State after the Fitzgerald inquiry. One of the senior members of this body, Mr Bob Hailstone, a former priest and manager of the ABC in Brisbane, and director of the corruption prevention division of the CJC [Criminal Justice Commission] has left the CJC in what could only be called exceptional circumstances.
In November last year a State police pedophilia task force raided Hailstone’s house at 31 Dudley Street, Bardon and took possession of a great deal of obscene material. Last week Eric Goh, a man who lives with Hailstone at 31 Dudley Street, appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on charges of possessing for sale indecent or obscene material.
These charges raise serious issues of concern.
I have in my possession a letter which I will now read into the public record, and which records disturbing incidents alleged to have occurred at Mr Hailstone’s house. The letter was written by a man, Mr Phillip Wood, shortly before he died. Hailstone recently resigned from the CJC rather than face disciplinary charges including association with an inappropriate person. It seems to me that the whole period of Hailstone’s service with the CJC should be examined, particularly as this body has failed in the past to investigate pedophilia allegations. The letter written to a Brisbane solicitor reads as follows:
Dear Malcolm,
This is my account of the incident on 30th June 1996. On 30th June 1996 I attended a luncheon party at the home of Mr. Robert Hailstone, 31 Dudley Street, Rainworth. In attendance were a total of fourteen persons, including Mr. Robert Hailstone – it then mentions a second and third person – the others I either didn’t know or can’t remember their names. During the course of the luncheon, some of the guests and the host were talking about having sex with young Asian boys, especially during their holidays in Thailand. This conversation was somewhat disturbing to me as I regard pederasty as anathema, but I said nothing. Later on, the conversation was about the church and their involvement in it, some of the group having been to church that day.
This triggered a hostile reaction in me, and I asked them how they could be involved in an institution that so vocally condemns homosexuality. This prompted an outburst of abuse by one of their number to me, with me responding by calling them a bunch of churchgoing pedophiles and saying that they should be outed (meaning to publicly expose them).
I then left the house. As I was reversing out of the driveway (there were a number of cars parked there) I clipped the wing mirror of one of the cars. This bought the lot of them out onto the driveway, shouting abuse and kicking the driver’s side of my car breaking the driver’s side window. I was bleeding from the broken glass and being physically attacked by a number of persons. In an attempt to escape I reversed into a tree and drove into the side of a car parked in the driveway. In the melee that followed one of their number managed to turn off the ignition of my car and remove the key. I was then left alone in my car whilst they huddled together a few metres away. I used a spare key and drove out of the driveway. I was covered in glass and blood and very shaken up, but I drove to my home in Victoria Point without incident. I had arrived at the luncheon at approx. 12:15 pm and arrived at my home at 3:30 pm.
Mr Robert Hailstone, who is a director of the CJC had stated to me on a couple of occasions that he could have anyone in Queensland arrested on a trumped-up drug charge. With this in mind, l was afraid to report the incident to the police. l paid for the repairs to the side of my car ($920) and made two separate claims to the NRMA insurance company for the damage to the front ($2785.18) and rear ($870.89) of my car. I hope that this account is comprehensive enough.
Yours Sincerely,
Phillip J. Wood
Madam President, this letter was dated 8 November 1996. Mr Wood was found dead in his home on 10 November 1996. 2. NSW Central Coast Coven EVIL IN THE WOODS Miranda Wood & Martin Chulov, The Sun Herald, 8 August 1999, p7.
The Police Integrity Commission is probing a shocking series of allegations that pedophiles have been protected by police and officials entrusted to care for the children. Police have uncovered evidence of central coast sites used in satanic rituals, to which drawings made by children who claim to have been abused, bear an eerie resemblance. One mother's traumatised child tells of adult groups hanging him from a cross, killing animals, performing sexual acts on cult members and watching orgies. A child from a separate family, who does not know the other child, tells an identical story.
The Sun-Herald has seen evidence of the rituals.
One mother, Genevieve, who has fought a four-year campaign to have authorities probe her claims said her case was similar to 33 other cases reported to the Department of Community Services. Medical evidence has proved that both Genevieve's children have been abused. ‘I'm coming across more and more women who tell the same story,’ she said. ‘I've spent years trying to get help for my children, but there are people who don't want this to come out. As he comes to feel safer, he has given more detailed explanations of what has happened to him and his brother. They held laser lights in their eyes to disorientate them. They were locked in basements and they had to watch each other being abused. He couldn't have possibly made all of this up.’
Genevieve said the boys had told her the names of those who assaulted them, and they could recall seeing at least 30 people at rituals in the bush. She said she believed the cult's rituals had been passed through generations of satanic covens. ‘My son can recognise members in the street and he even knows their names,’ she said. The children called the bushland site ‘the woods.’ They would take long walks through the bush and it was always at night. The ceremonies were held at night,’ Genevieve said.
The drawings by each child also show the same violent acts and symbols used by the cult. One of the symbols Genevieve's son drew was the same symbol on the ceremonial table police have taken a photo of at the bushland site.
Genevieve said the children were afraid to tell of the ritualistic abuse after cult members threatened to kill them and their mothers. Cult members also told them a bomb in their stomach would explode if the truth was revealed - a trait associated with worldwide satanic covens. Genevieve said her son could also remember being drugged and hypnotised. ‘He said they dressed in black robes and had eye and mouth pieces cut out,’ she said. ‘I know they're pretty dangerous people. I have had warnings outside the house telling me to stop investigations. We're fearful for our lives. The boys never want me out of their sight.’
She is now battling to let the truth come out and protect other children from a fate similar to that of her sons. Genevieve said: ‘It's an absolute nightmare. You try to get help and you have the door slammed in your face repeatedly. I'd do anything to stop this from happening again. After a while they make you feel as though you dreamed it all up. The laws and the attitudes need to change.’
Commissioner James Wood headed the Police Integrity Commission which investigated this case which subsequently went nowhere. Are the victims and witnesses now dead?
3. National ALP Pedophile Network
SA Parliamentary Speaker of the House, Peter Lewis, stated (1 April 2005):
There are a large number, but not a high percentage, of people in high places and positions of trust who take it for granted that they can indulge their sexual appetites for children of both sexes so long as they arrange to cover it up and get away with it… It’s a national problem and MPs involved seem to know each other.
On 4th April 2005, Peter Lewis resigned his position as Speaker of the South Australian Parliament. He resigned amidst allegations that certain ministers and journalists thwarted his attempts to expose high-end pedophilia rings by reducing his concerns about pedophilia to ‘homophobia.’ Lewis stated during his parting speech:
I…was quietly, and as quickly as possible, bringing some of the people who had made the allegations to the point where they might pluck up enough courage and confidence and swear the truth of those allegations, enabling them to be more carefully investigated. But they were being ‘bumped off’- that is, murdered and viciously assaulted – quicker than I or the people who were helping me could get them to write down their allegations and then swear that what they were saying was true…
The most outrageous thing of all…is…what appears to be the related and organised activities of those pedophiles in high public office – that is, the judiciary, the senior ranks of human services portfolios, some police and MPs, across the nation, especially within the ranks of the Labor Party.
Yet you only have to recall in recent years the investigations, charges and successful convictions against such people as Darcy, Liddy, Wright, Wells, a former senator and other current and past MPs in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria to understand my concern. They have not acted alone or in isolation, it seems to me…
It is not surprising that we find [pedophiles] in the jobs and roles of leadership.
4. Melbourne Priest Luciferian Pedophile Ring In 2006, the Catholic Church’s Melbourne diocese acknowledged as ‘substantially true’ allegations that a priest took part in ritual murders in the 1960s and paid compensation to a surviving victim.
PRIEST DID ‘RITUAL KILLING’ Gary Hughes, The Courier Mail, 26 May 2006.
A Catholic priest took part in satanic murders and rituals that included child sexual abuse. The Catholic Church’s Melbourne Archdiocese has accepted claims about the rituals as ‘substantially true’ and paid $33,000 compensation to a man who was a victim of the rituals as a child. The archdiocese’s independent sexual abuse investigator, barrister Peter O’Callaghan, QC, described the details of the ritualised murders and sexual abuse provided by the victim as ‘extraordinary… but I have no reason or justification for doubting his credibility,’ Mr O’Callaghan said in a letter to the victim’s lawyers in 2000.
Earlier during a formal interview with the victim, Mr O’Callaghan said he was satisfied the man was telling the truth.’ I see no reason why I shouldn’t accept what you say,’ he said. ‘Amazing as it is, I accept it…’
In a sworn statement given to the archdiocese, the victim said he was first abused by the priest in Melbourne in the early 1960s, when he was serving as an altar boy at the Sacred Heart Church in Sandringham. The priest has since died. In his statement the 56-year-old victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, gave details of at least three deaths – a young woman, a young man and a child – that occurred during satanic rituals over a number of years. Two victims had their throats cut and a third was killed with an axe. Animals were also killed during the ceremonies. ‘I have some gruesome memories of killings,’ the victim said…
The independent compensation panel made a $33,000 ex-gratia payment to the victim in 2001 after his claims had been investigated by Mr O’Callaghan. The archdiocese is paying for counselling for the man, who has been diagnosed as suffering from complex post-traumatic stress disorder.
Gary Hughes,, 26 May 2006.
The most extraordinary thing about today’s allegations of murders during satanic rituals involving a Melbourne priest is not that they’ve been made, but that the Catholic Church admitted in writing that it accepted they were substantially true. Indeed ‘extraordinary’ was the word used by the Melbourne Archdiocese’s experienced sexual abuse investigator Peter O’Callaghan QC to describe the allegations when they were put to him in 2000…
The statement provided to the Archdiocese by the victim, who wants to remain anonymous, makes chilling reading. He details how the Catholic priest, who has since died, first began abusing him at the age of 11 in 1961 when he was serving as an altar boy at the Sacred Heart Church in the bayside suburb of Sandringham and attending a Catholic school, where the priest was chaplain. The priest got the victim alone in a room on the pretext of giving him a sex education lesson and sexually abused him. Later the priest would sexually abuse the boy in his car and at the Sacred Heart Church’s presbytery, where the victim was lured on the promise of playing with toy soldiers.
But it’s the accounts of satanic rituals and the victim’s eyewitness reports of murders that are harrowing. In the statement he details at least three murders – a young girl, a youth and a young child. He says the victims were mostly drugged and appeared to be in a daze before having their throats cut or being hacked with an axe. He says he was forced to take part in the rituals and was sexually abused during them by the priest and others involved in the ceremonies.
While claims of satanic rituals and ritualised sexual abuse by victims are nothing new, what makes these allegations different is the Melbourne Archdiocese’s acceptance of the claims as being true. To our knowledge, it is the first time the Catholic Church in Melbourne has done that in writing.
Some of the rituals, which occurred over a three-year period, took place in an old house owned by the Catholic Church in Sandringham. The house was later demolished, and a new Sacred Heart Church built on the site. . . Other rituals took place at other locations around Melbourne. The victim would be driven to and from the locations by the priest. The victim said during one of the final sexual assaults by the priest he was threatened with a carving knife and told he would be killed if he ever talked to anyone about what he had seen or what had been done to him.
The victim first contacted Victoria Police in 1998 and was told details would be passed to the homicide squad. He says he heard nothing more . . .
In a letter to the victim dated January 5, 2001, the then head of the Melbourne Archdiocese, Cardinal George Pell, apologised for the ‘wrong and hurt’ he suffered at the hands of the priest. The victim’s decision to speak out follows the conviction in the United States earlier this month of Catholic priest Gerald Robinson for the ritualistic murder of a nun. He said he believed there were other victims of ritualised abuse in Australia who were too afraid or embarrassed to speak out. Robinson was charged with the murder of the nun 26 years ago after a female victim of child sexual abuse went to authorities with claims that the priest had been involved in satanic rituals.
The victim in the two articles is James Shanahan. Cardinal George Pell, who signed the (5 January 2001) letter
5. Bathurst, NSW Police and Clergy Pedophile Network In 2008, a decade after the Wood Royal Commission ruled that Ritual Abuse does not exist in Australia, the greatest Ritual Abuse scandal in Australia’s history broke into mainstream media. The following newspaper articles refer to this case: CHANTING, SPELLS AND SEX ORGIES AT ST STANISLAUS COLLEGE Gemma Jones, Herald Sun, 27 August 2008. POLICE are investigating claims that up to 40 boys were sexually abused by a pedophile ring of priests and teachers at an exclusive NSW school… A former priest at the school has been charged with 33 counts, a former teacher has already been convicted of several offences and two other teachers are under investigation. In his first interview, a brave young man who used the internet to expose the abuse revealed the full extent of the horror at the school. He is one of two victims who have told The Daily Telegraph how they were herded into a prayer room by a priest chanting ‘hypnotic’ spells in tongues. Inside the prayer room, the boarders who attended the school in the 1980s said they were subjected to horrendous sexual abuse or forced to assault each other… A former boarder now aged 35, who can’t be identified because of a court suppression order, started at St Stanislaus in the ’80s because it was the only private school in the area his family could afford. He alleged the abuse began after a priest took him aside for private tutoring about the Catholic Church and God two months after he arrived at the school and the horror turned into a twice-weekly event. ‘They got a group between eight and 12 of us together and they’d just start chanting and I would wake up during these sessions and see what was going on,’ he said. ‘It was like an orgy.’ The second victim, who declined to give permission to be named, yesterday described the horrific night-time prayer sessions in the staff’s quarters under candlelight. ‘You’d pass out … they spoke in tongues … another element was called laying on hands, that was the basis on which he would engage in physical contact,’ the victim said. He said the students were all small in stature and many of them emotionally troubled. ‘I know of people who have been contacted, they said, ‘Yes, you’re right but I haven’t told my wife what happened to me I’m not going to tell you guys (police),’ he said. Police last night confirmed 13 alleged victims had already come forward. ABUSE AT ST STANISLAUS COLLEGE ‘INVOLVED NIGHT ORGIES’ Angus Hohenboken, The Australian, August 28, 2008. ORGIES involving up to 60 schoolboys, priests and teachers are among allegations levelled at former staff members of a NSW Catholic boarding school. The Seven Network last night reported claims that nine former teachers and priests from St Stanislaus College in Bathurst, in eastern NSW, had committed sexual abuse on students during ‘hypnotic’ night prayer services in the 1980s.
An alleged victim, whose identity was withheld for legal reasons, said the number of victims involved in the encounters had grown over time. ‘It started out on a one-on-one basis and then in small groups of between eight and 12, and then on one occasion there was a large group of at least 60...’  
The victim whistle-blower was Tor Nielsen. The group of 60 Tor referred to were 60 children raped during a Luciferian ritual in Bathurst City Hall. This pedophile orgy was attended by visiting NSW police officers who boarded at St Stanislaus College during the famous Bathurst car race.
Suspicious St Stanislaus Deaths
Tor Nielsen did a letter drop in Bathurst to expose the pedophile ring. Consequently, his lawyer who failed to silence Tor ‘fell’ from an eighth story apartment. Another witness was found dead the day before he was due to testify in the pedophile trials. A former St Stanislaus College student whose son now attended the school. He was also a lawyer who worked at Frederick Jordon Chambers in Sydney. My friend found him hanged to death by his tie from a bookshelf in the basement library one morning. Only half an hour prior to his death the following evening, staff witnessed the lawyer in a normal mood working on one of his cases. Although attending police treated the death as suspicious, it was ruled a suicide.
6. Brisbane, Queensland
A counsellor at a prestigious Queensland private school ritually hypnotised students before masturbating them, slapping them in the face and putting acupuncture needles in one child’s genitals, the royal commission into institutional responses to child sex abuse has heard. The scores of alleged victims of Kevin Lynch at Brisbane Grammar school included a boy who was sexually abused in a grief counselling session given after learning his father had committed suicide…
One alleged victim of Lynch, known only as BQK, told the commission that the counsellor’s ‘treatment [was] built around his convincing me that I could harness the power of my orgasms to gain an edge’ in studies and sport. ‘He would regularly masturbate me to the point of ejaculation and sometimes would make me ingest my own semen,’ he said. Lynch also slapped the boy in the face to ‘psyche me up about winning a metaphorical race. Other times he would use acupuncture needles and put them into my testicles or stick his thumb in my anus,’ BQK said. BQK told the commission he ‘assumed this was a normal treatment method’ and did not appreciate he had been seriously abused until ‘well into my adult life.’
He said he could not understand why Grammar staff had not questioned why Lynch operated out of a room that had two heavy, soundproof doors, red and green light signals controlling student access, and had significant stocks of tissues and towels, which he used to wipe up semen. The room was set up as a ‘sick conveyer belt of victims for Lynch,’ he said…
My husband worked at Brisbane Grammar School where we lived in school-owned apartments on Gregory Terrace with my baby. I contended with a BGS coven involving an English teachers and ground staff who targeted my daughter. They posed as a new church that I was invited to. My suspicions were aroused when the English teacher’s young obese daughter broke down in terror at a ‘church’ meeting, like we were at a coven gathering.
James Wood’s Sexist Conclusion
In his Final Report, Royal Commissioner Wood concluded Ritual Abuse victims to be:
…nearly always women, who during therapy for a variety of personal problems, reveal previously unrecalled memories of bizarre childhood victimisation at the hands of multiple offenders, and who are frequently diagnosed as suffering from multiple personality disorder.
The Australian victims documented in the above newspaper articles are male. Most of the Sydney pedophile network victims who contacted me are male. This contradicts Commissioner Wood’s sexist dismissal of Ritual Abuse victims as crazy, hysterical females.
Bill Heffernan Reiterates
Twenty 20 years after the failed Wood Royal Commission, Senator Bill Heffernan raised the same concerns regarding VIP pedophiles:
A former Australian prime minister is on a list of ‘alleged pedophiles’ that Liberal senator Bill Heffernan claims forms part of a police document. Senator Heffernan used a Senate estimates committee hearing on Tuesday to discuss the list of 28 people, which he said formed part of police documents that had been ‘signed off’ by Gary Crooke, QC, the former senior counsel assisting NSW’s Wood royal commission into police corruption in the 1990s. Mr Crooke declined to comment when contacted by Fairfax Media on Tuesday.
Many of the people on the list and otherwise named in the documents were ‘prominent,’ including a former prime minister, Senator Heffernan said: ‘They were delivered to me by a police agency some time ago because no one seems to want to deal with them.’ Every Commonwealth attorney-general since Philip Ruddock had seen the list, Senator Heffernan said…
Senator Heffernan had shown the documents to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse but was told they were not part of its terms of reference. What the Wood
Royal Commission Hid
My contact with multiple victims over five years enabled me to piece together the sealed contents of the Wood Royal Commission files. James Wood buried evidence of a CIA child trafficking operation where children were recruited for a human compromise racket and as MK-ULTRA experiments. Subjects were obtained through MK-ULTRA institutions including Hillsong Church and Daruk government boys’ home where they were subjected to ritual abuse and mind control. Daruk and Hillsong children were prostituted to venues like Club Costello boy brothel in Kellett Street, Kings Cross, frequented by prominent politicians, judges, police, entertainers and businessmen. Multiple victims of the Wood Royal Commission era pedophile network that Senator Heffernan referenced, named the following perpetrators:
Gough Whitlam (ALP Prime Minister, my pedophile rapist). - Bob Hawke (ALP Prime Minister, my pedophile rapist). - Kim Beazley Snr (ALP Minister, my pedophile rapist). - John Kerr (ALP appointed Governor General, my pedophile rapist). - Bob Carr (ALP politician who campaigned to lower the age of consent). - Marcus Einfeld (Federal judge. Found guilty of perverting the course of justice. Defended pedophile entertainer Don Lane on marijuana charge. Defended my pedophile rapist Lionel Murphy against corruption charges). - David Yeldham (Judge who suicided after Franca Arena named him in Parliament as a pedophile, sparking the Wood Royal Commission). John Marsden (President NSW Law Society, President NSW Council for Civil Liberties, member NSW Police Board. My father’s lawyer. Ivan Milat’s lawyer. Named in Parliament as a pedophile). - Roger Rogerson (Police detective who protected Sydney’s underbelly including Club Costello boy brothel. Escaped drug trafficking and murder convictions on appeal, before a subsequent murder conviction stuck in 2014). - Frank Arkell (Wollongong Mayor ritually murdered after being named in Parliament). - Kerry Packer (Media mogul. Roger Rogerson shot 12-year-old Dean Henry, son of Kings Cross prostitute, as he fled being raped by Packer). - Frank Houston (Hillsong Church founder, serial pedophile, child trafficker). - Graham Kennedy (TV star). - Don Lane (TV star). - Bert Newton (TV star). - Stuart Wagstaff (TV star)
In 2018 Bert Newton made a bizarre reference to the pedophile antics of his TV star buddies Graham Kennedy and Don Lane during his TV Logie Awards speech:
Graham Kennedy was always the sort of man who nurtured young talent. He enjoyed giving young people a chance on television, he was a great mentor, he mentored a lot of young people. You knew if you went to his dressing room it was locked, he will be inside doing some mentoring. Don Lane was a mentor too. He did a hell of a lot of mentoring.
Engadine BoysTown & Daruk
Daruk government boys’ home was used to procure kids for child sex trafficking Club Costello boy brothel. Tim Roy’s father, who sex trafficked his own sons to members of Sydney’s entertainment industry, worked at Daruk 
At age 13, Stephen Masters was thrown into Daruk government boys’ home where he was subjected to ECT (electrocution). Stephen publicly declared Daruk was a CIA research facility where boys were subjected to MK-ULTRA experiments involving circumcision, biochemical exposure, drugging, and electrocution.
Stephen said boys (notably a child surnamed Rogan) were murdered by hanging and their deaths recorded as ‘suicide’ or ‘absconded.’ Victims’ bodies were disposed of in the coal furnace that heated Daruk. Stephen Masters believes Medical Officer John Munger headed the MK-ULTRA research conducted on Daruk boys. The Australian government is protecting the identity and whereabouts of John Munger who is not listed with the low-level Daruk perpetrators due to be prosecuted in early 2020. Police informed Stephen Masters that John Munger served in the Australian Navy, yet no photo is available of him. Daruk staff occupied a house on the street corner directly outside the Daruk entrance; Stephen believes this was where the MK-ULTRA records were safely stored off-site.
Stephen Master’s was incarcerated in Daruk with Les Murphy who, with four others including John Travers, was imprisoned for the 1986 ritual rape and murder of 26-year-old nurse Anita Coby. I say ‘ritual’ because I heard unpublished details of Anita’s murder from two unrelated sources who viewed Les Murphy’s file, the lawyer husband of my high school friend, and a prison guard I bunked with during my parole officer training in Sydney. The latter vomited when she read Murphy’s file detailing how he and his accomplices had sex with deep cuts they made in Anita’s body.
Serial killer Ivan Milat’s victims were found chopped up and scattered over a wide area of bushland, which indicates satanic ritual. I surmise that Milat was the fall guy for a group cult effort. Stephen Masters reported two encounters with Ivan Milat to police. The first involved Milat offering 15-year-old Stephen and his inebriated teenage mate a lift. Milat detoured to Club Costello boy brothel in Kings Cross where Stephen recognised 16- year-old Les Murphy working behind the bar. Stephen deduced Ivan Milat drugged and raped his young mate in Milat’s car that evening, and that that Milat had a system of scouting and collecting child victims, drugging them in preparation for rape by pedophiles at Club Costello, before disposing of their bodies afterwards.
Both Ivan Milat and John Travers (Anita Coby’s killer) spent time in Engadine’s BoysTown juvenile detention facility, where my father and I were subjected to years of ritual abuse. Australians question where the likes of Milat, Murphy and Travers got the idea to murder people the way they did. Such behaviour is not innate - it was taught by Luciferian pedophiles who ran Engadine BoysTown and Daruk. We will never know how many murders Milat and Murphy committed separately or together. The unsolved 1965 Wanda beach murders where two 15-year-old girls violently stabbed and slashed at Cronulla carried all the hallmarks of Ivan Milat.
Milat, Marsden & Murphy
John Marsden was Ivan Milat’s lawyer. In 1971, Marsden secured Ivan Milat bail for rape and armed robbery charges and helped him flee to New Zealand. Australian authorities allowed Milat to leave the country knowing he was on bail for serious offences. I wonder how many NZ victims Milat sourced, abducted and killed for the NZ VIP pedophile network I heard about from NZ victims and witnesses. When Milat returned to Australia in 1974, John Marsden had him acquitted of the rape and armed robbery charges. Milat was never charged for breaching his bail conditions by leaving Australia. My father knew the Milat brothers who told him they were never caught for a series of bank robberies during which they routinely raped young female bank tellers.
Daruk resident Ray Leary was sex trafficked to Club Costello boy brothel where he was raped by John Marsden.90 Ray Leary also witnessed Les Murphy working behind the bar at Club Costello, and said John Marsden used Les Murphy, whom Marsden frequently visited in prison, to threaten him. Indeed, a judge found John Marsden used Les Murphy to persuade a witness to change his position. John Marsden escaped conviction for pedophilia, yet the NSW Victims Compensation Tribunal awarded compensation to one of his victims.
John Marsden came out as gay after Deidre Grusovin used parliamentary privilege to name him as a pedophile. Pedophile Prime Minister Gough Whitlam attended John Marsden’s funeral, while accused pedophile Justice Michael Kirby delivered Marsden’s eulogy.
Age of Consent Bill
James Wood did not recommend any action against the accused VIP pedophiles. instead, he recommended lowering the age of consent so men could legally have sex with teenagers. Premiere Bob Carr subsequently introduced his NSW Age of Consent Bill in 2003. The leftist media labelled any opposition to Carr’s Bill ‘homophobia.’ When an MP who voted against the Bill used parliamentary privilege to threaten naming a senior MP accused of raping a 15-year-old boy, Premier Bob Carr referred the matter to the Police Integrity Commission headed by James Wood.91
‘Ritual Abuse’ Included in PM’s National Apology
I campaigned for five years to undo the damage James Wood did to the credibility of Australian Ritual Abuse victims and their therapists. On 17 October 2018, I tweeted at our Prime Minister:
@ScottMorrisonMP When you issue your ‘National Apology to Victims and Survivors of institutional Child Sexual Abuse’ this Mon 22 Oct, please acknowledge victims of ‘Ritual Abuse’ by using these very words. This will gain you credibility with the many RA victims and the therapists
If only the Prime Minister included those two words, I reasoned, then victims and therapists could reintroduce ‘Ritual Abuse’ to their vocabulary, and SRA victims would have a voice. My tweet received the most public attention on the PM’s twitter account that day. On 22 October, the PM included in his National Apology:
The crimes of Ritual Sexual Abuse happened in schools, churches, youth groups, scout troops, orphanages, foster homes, sporting clubs, group homes, charities, and in family homes.
My therapist exclaimed: ‘From now on I’m including the words, “ritual abuse - as acknowledged by the Australian Prime Minister” in all my medical reports!’
Pièce de résistance
On 18 June 2014, Sydney child trafficking victim Dean Thomas Chisholme Henry attended an Assessment and Inquiry Session at Silverwater Prison with Vicki Cosma and Darren Latimore (Officers with the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse). During this, Dean Henry provided verbal testimony concerning his child abuse experiences which the Commission Officers recorded and submitted in transcript form to the Royal Commission. In this transcript, Dean Henry listed names of men his mother sold him to as a child. On page 5 of the transcript, Dean Henry named one of his pedophile perpetrators as JUSTICE JAMES ROLAND WOOD.
Victorian VIP Pedophile Network
Eyes Wide Open 
1 Fiona Barnett Eyes Wide Open CIA Child Trafficking | MK-ULTRA in Australia Ritual Abuse & Mind Control | Trauma-Based Forced Dissociation Trauma-Focused Integration 
In 2004, Reina Michaelson (PhD psychologist, 2005 Young Australian of the Year for Community Service) called for a Royal Commission into allegations of a Victorian pedophile network involving Rushworth state high school and the Education Department, DOCS (child protection), a Mornington Peninsula childcare centre, Liberal Party Premiere Jeff Kennett, Victorian Police, Network 10, and TV star Bert Newton. The following newspaper articles refer to this operation:
POLICE FILES ON SEX ABUSE ‘VANISHED’ Gary Hughes, The Age, 19 April 2004.
Police files on a suspect in claimed sexual abuse by men dressed as police are said to have ‘disappeared.’ A deputy principal who reported a student’s claim of the abuse says detectives later told him that Victoria Police computer files on one of the alleged pedophiles were tampered with. He was also told his initial report to the Department of Human Services under the mandatory reporting system disappeared.
The 13-year-old boy told staff at the school he had been repeatedly sexually abused by a number of men on the Mornington Peninsula. He said some of the men wore police uniforms and warned him that they would know if he reported the abuse because they were policemen. The boy had also been used to produce child pornography later published overseas.
The deputy principal said it was clear from a detailed 12-page statement made by the boy that the abuse was conducted by an organised and ‘well-connected’ pedophile ring.
No charges were laid because police said the boy had been ‘too well groomed’ by the pedophiles and it was doubtful he would testify in court.
The deputy principal contacted The Age after it revealed this month that the Ombudsman was investigating the alleged mishandling of a number of child sexual abuse cases by Victoria Police. The Age advised him to contact the Ombudsman, which he has since done.
One case being reviewed by the Ombudsman involves children at a child-care centre in Mornington. Investigators have been told that a house where the alleged abuse took place possibly belonged to a policeman and that a videotape existed of children from the centre being abused by men dressed as police. The deputy principal from the college in Melbourne’s outer east has asked that neither he nor the college be named to protect the identity of the abused boy.
The deputy principal, who has since become principal of another school, lodged an initial report with what was then Community Services Victoria in July 1995. He telephoned about two weeks later and was told the report was being investigated. The deputy principal said it was clear from a statement made by the boy that the abuse was conducted by an organised pedophile ring.
After the boy made more detailed disclosures and began displaying disturbing behaviour, the school lodged a second mandatory report in December 1995 through the Education Department’s regional office. The complaint was taken ‘very seriously’ and police were called. The deputy principal said police told him there was no record of the original report to community services or his follow-up phone call. A senior child protection manager told him it was not the first time reports had disappeared.
Detectives from a community policing unit said the main alleged offender in the ring was well known to police, the deputy principal said. But the police said a previous case against him had been abandoned after information on police files had disappeared. ‘I started to pinch myself and think is this real or not? It seemed quite bizarre and I was very frustrated…’ he said.
After police dropped the investigation in 1996 the boy ‘totally clammed up’ and staff at the school did not know whether the abuse continued. A Victoria Police spokesman said the original allegation had been investigated, including a search of the main suspect’s home that found no incriminating evidence. The boy involved had refused to repeat to police the disclosures he had earlier made to school staff. The spokesman said he was not aware that files had disappeared.

Matt Doran, Mornington Peninsula Leader, 4 May 2004.
AT 7am on an ordinary morning in the early 1990s, police rapped on the door of a house in Mt Martha, waiting to tell a mother and a father their two toddlers were believed to have been victims of pedophilia. They did it subtly, of course, by asking the parents to see if their children had ever heard of ‘red Kenny’ or ‘Daddy Kenny.’ A number of children from a Mornington childcare centre had earlier told the police these were nicknames used by men who had sexually abused them. ‘I will never forget the look on my daughter’s face when she heard those names. She immediately ran behind her mother saying ‘save me mummy, save me,’ said John (not his real name). John was later told by his eldest daughter that the same men had held her underwater and bent her little finger backwards if she didn’t do as she was told. John knew in his heart then that the bruises on his youngest daughters’ cheek had not been caused by a ‘playground accident.’ His children, ‘two little heroes,’ were among at least 16 others abused at the Mornington Child Care Centre and Nursery School in the 1990s. Children told police and their parents they were taken from the centre in a van to a house in Mornington where they were sexually and physically abused by a group of adults. Some described being abused by adults wearing ‘funny clothes’ including police uniforms, clown suits and ‘black capes with tails.’
The centre was deregistered after a Department of Human Services inquiry found that the centre’s owners, Norman and Alison Shulver, had ‘permitted the abuse to occur or were involved in that abuse.’ No police charges were laid, but in 1994 the Crimes Compensation Tribunal awarded damages of up to $20,000 to more than 30 applicants affected by the alleged abuse.
Now a decade later, Victoria’s Ombudsman is due to release a report on the way police handled their investigation. But that does not comfort John or his eldest daughter, now 16, who are still traumatised. ‘My eldest daughter still needs counselling and is afraid to sleep by herself. She is on antidepressants and . . . has no friends,’ John said. ‘She believes she was the victim of organised pedophilia and she still fears for her life. ‘It is too late for justice for my family. Justice cannot repair my marriage or make up for the trauma my daughter has suffered. But there needs to be justice for the community, so that people’s faith in the system can be restored.’
Psychologist Dr Reina Michaelson, who is representing survivors of abuse throughout Victoria, helped instigate the Ombudsman’s investigation in 2002. She first raised concerns with Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon in 2001, about the way the original police investigation was conducted after a ‘well-hidden’ file containing allegations linking police to child sex offences was stolen from her home. But now Dr Michaelson has lost faith in the Ombudsman’s internal investigation.
Documents obtained by the Leader show that in April last year an Ethical Standards Department officer was removed from the investigation for ‘incompetence’ after he failed to pass on vital information from two witnesses. One witness claimed that a house used by pedophiles in Mornington belonged to a policeman. The other witness gave information about the existence of a video tape that showed a number of men dressed in police uniforms abusing children. The investigator said he could not recall talking about a video with the witness, but a check of telephone records showed he did have such a conversation.
‘These children were the victims of a highly organised and protected pedophile group that continues to operate throughout Victoria,’ Dr Michaelson said. ‘While this type of corruption continues, these children don’t have a hope of getting justice. ‘They desperately want to present their testimonies and evidence, but they need to be given a forum where they can do this in safety and where the investigative process is truly independent.
Dr Reina Michaelson, who sparked the Ombudsman's current investigation, is a high achiever in the world of child psychology. The 33-year-old completed her PhD in psychology at Victoria University in 2001. Her thesis, which was awarded the vice-chancellor's medal for excellence in research, focused on ways to prevent child sexual abuse. Dr Michaelson was Young Australian of the Year (for community service) in 2001.

 MPs AND POLICE ‘IN CHILD SEX NETWORK’ Gosia Kaszubska, The Australian, 9 July 2004.
A SOPHISTICATED pedophile network involving former politicians and police has been operating in Victoria since the 70s, anti-child-abuse campaigners claimed yesterday. Reina Michaelson, head of the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program, and Bravehearts founder Hetty Johnston said victims had told them of an organised child pornography and prostitution network with links to former MPs and senior police officers.
The claims a pedophile ring was operating under the protection of police came after the Victorian Ombudsman released a damning report on the conduct of four child sex abuse investigations, leading to a review of the operations of the sexual crimes squad. Two experienced members of the squad will be investigated over their role in the abuse cases, which are being reopened.
The inquiry found the officers failed to adequately examine several child abuse allegations and concluded they may have lied under oath to investigators from the Ombudsman’s office. The Ombudsman found officers from the squad told the Education Department a teacher had been cleared of abuse allegations, despite conducting no investigation into the claims.
In a separate case, a senior detective blamed a 12-year-old girl for encouraging a man who had allegedly abused her, and another officer described the victim as ‘a little slut.’
The Ombudsman’s inquiry followed complaints from Dr Michaelson, who gave a dossier of child abuse cases she claimed had been mishandled to police Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon in late 2001. . .

A sudden decision by Victoria Police to drop a rape investigation involving a prominent television industry figure is likely to be examined as part of a special inquiry by the state Ombudsman into how authorities handle sexual assault cases. Using his new powers, the Ombudsman will examine how government agencies and the police investigate allegations of sexual assault and how victims are treated. The wide-ranging inquiry will include the Department of Education and the Department of Human Services, which is responsible for child protection.
One of the cases likely to be examined is the recent decision by Victoria Police to drop an investigation into sexual assault allegations against the prominent Victorian television industry figure. The alleged victim told police in March that he was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted as a teenager by the male television executive in the 1980s.
Deputy Ombudsman John Taylor told The Age a special unit began initial work on the inquiry several weeks ago and government agencies had been formally notified. … The alleged victim of the television figure lodged a formal complaint last week with the Ombudsman and Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon about the decision to drop the investigation. The Ombudsman had already decided to hold the special inquiry before the complaint was received. Ms Nixon has referred the complaint to the police Ethical Standards Department.
The Ombudsman has been told that police decided to drop the case, despite the Office of Public Prosecutions reviewing the evidence just weeks earlier and indicating the investigation should proceed and charges could be laid. In his complaint to the Ombudsman, the alleged victim said that police ignored potentially corroborative evidence, failed to interview witnesses, only spoke to some other witnesses over the telephone and pressured him into writing a letter exonerating a second offender just a week before dropping the case.
Mr Taylor said the decision to hold the special inquiry was the result of the number of complaints received over the past 12 months about the way sexual abuse allegations had been handled by government agencies and the police. ‘Inevitably the focus has been as the result of some specific complaints, but we are looking more broadly than just a few complaints,’ he said. …
The new inquiry comes after an Ombudsman's investigation into police mishandling of child sexual abuse cases was scathing in its criticism of Victoria Police in July. Police reopened four cases after the Ombudsman found investigations had been bungled. The Age revealed at the time that, in one of the cases, children had remained at risk in a country town after police inadequately investigated an alleged pedophile in 1999.
The two-year investigation by the Ombudsman was also highly critical of the attitudes of investigating officers. One senior sexual crimes squad detective blamed a 12-year-old schoolgirl for leading on a 63-year-old man who allegedly abused her. Another police officer told investigators the same girl was a ‘slut,’ despite admitting she had most likely been sexually abused.
The sexual crimes squad was also found to have failed to investigate allegations against a teacher, but told the Education Department that investigations had been carried out and the teacher cleared.

Barney Zwarts, The Age, 22 November 2006.
An anti-child-sex campaigner accused an occult religious group of hosting parties at which naked children acted as waiters and at which members had sex with and murdered children, a tribunal was told yesterday. The obscure group Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) claims Dr Reina Michaelson and the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program described it in a website article as a satanic cult that sacrificed children and ate their organs and blood. It has complained under Victoria’s religious hatred law that Dr Michaelson and her organisation vilified OTO members, causing revulsion, ridicule, hatred and contempt.
According to OTO’s statement of complaint, Dr Michaelson said it was not a religion but a child pornography and pedophile ring, that its members practised traumabased mind control, sexual abuse and satanic rituals to discourage its victims from complaining to the authorities, and that it condoned kidnapping street children and babies and children from orphanages for sex and sacrifice in religious rituals.
The case began at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal yesterday but was adjourned to today to allow a last-ditch attempt to settle out of court. The article, still accessible on a website run from NSW, suggests senior politicians and television celebrities are part of a top-level pedophile ring and have been protected by some police. It says some members of the ring pretended to support Dr Michaelson’s campaign and became board members of her group to subvert it from within. . .
OTO members follow a religion known as Thelema, founded by occultist Aleister Crowley.

The following document was posted by David Icke and on various websites including Above Top Secret. The public reinserted some of the names that Reina disguised.
The Australian Pedophile Network
The following is a summary of events that detail the infiltration of a high-profile, powerful group of child sex offenders into my child abuse prevention organisation. What was uncovered as a result of this infiltration was the existence of a child pornography and pedophile ring that is operating in Australia, under the protection of senior-ranking members of Victoria Police.
The members of the network include senior management and executives from a major television network, media celebrities, high-ranking politicians, police officers in charge of pedophile and child pornography investigations, senior management representatives from the Department of Education, directors of ‘child-focused’ service clubs, wealthy businessmen, and others. I have tried to keep the account as brief as possible while including all relevant information. The description covers events from 1995 until the time of this writing (2005). Names have been changed.
Victorian Department of Education Protects Rushmore Pedophile Teacher
In 1995 I started running Australia's first child sexual abuse prevention program in schools (CSAPP, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program). This school-based program teaches children how to protect themselves from sexual abuse and what to do if someone tries to sexually abuse them. The program also teaches adults how they can best protect children under their care from sexual abuse My assistant and I were at Rushworth high school in the northern region working with Year 9 boys. We received a note written anonymously by one of the boys asking, ‘What do you do if you get raped by a teacher and no one will believe you? What happens if you get raped and you enjoy it?’ Later during that day, we were asked exactly the same question by a boy who was flushed red with embarrassment. I replied, ‘Talk to the Student Welfare Coordinator,’ to which he replied, ‘What if he is the one who won't believe you?’ I emphasized that it is important to keep telling until someone believes you.
During the day my assistant and I noticed the strange behaviour of a Rushworth teacher. Later that afternoon I learnt that the car I had been driving had been rammed in the school's carpark. Witnesses reported that the car had been rammed deliberately by a man who then drove off very quickly.
The local police were called and ran a licence check on the car and discovered that the numberplate was fake. They then took photos of the crime scene using the school's camera. Later, when it was revealed that a teacher was under suspicion of sexually abusing the children at the school and then organising the ramming of my car to intimidate me, the photos went ‘missing,’ and no further action was taken.
The Rushworth teacher was the only person at the school who knew my car, as he had taken it upon himself to show me to my car to give me directions to the shops during a break in classes.
It was organised that the boys in Year 9 would be interviewed in order to find the victims and give them appropriate support. Three people (including myself, my assistant and a counsellor from a sexual assault centre) were responsible for conducting the interviews. At the completion of the interviews, there were concerns for approximately 12 of the boys.
These concerns related specifically to sexual assault by a teacher at the school. However, by this stage (over a week had passed since the initial program) it was clear that the boys had been threatened. For example, when I interviewed the boy who had asked the questions about sexual abuse by a teacher and not being believed, he huddled into a foetal position, started crying, and said he could not tell me what happened. When I asked him why he couldn't tell me, he replied that he had been threatened with his life. His best friend told me he would never tell what had happened.
Sometime after this, we organised a theatre company performance for the students (on the topic of sexual abuse). While the children were seated and waiting for the play to begin, the offending teacher made an unscheduled visit to the hall. He proceeded to stand in front of each of the boys we had identified as potential victims and stare them down. The boys, who had been happy and laughing in the excitement of waiting for the play to begin, went grey with fear. Finally, I stood in front of the pedophile teacher so that he could not intimidate the boys any further.
I was then told no further action would be taken as the boys had not named the offender.
Program Infiltrated
I was the recipient of a very prestigious national award (Young Australian of the Year for Community Service). One of the judges (’RS’) was a well-connected government official, and another was Robert Osmotherly, a Network 10 TV executive.
Network 10 General Manager
After winning this award, Robert Osmotherly approached me and said that he had never heard of this terrible crime (child sexual abuse) before meeting me. He said wanted to help me get my program into every school in Victoria within five years and said he had the money and the connections to do this. He said he would raise half a million dollars in 6 weeks, and have it matched within 6 months. He said that he and RS would set my program up as an independent organisation and that they would establish a Board of Management consisting of all of their powerful and influential friends. RS would become President of the organisation and Robert Osmotherly Vice-President.
I agreed to Robert Osmotherly’s proposal as it sounded as if he would enable the program to receive substantial funding and therefore be able to reach many more children within Victoria, and across Australia. I did not consider for a second that Robert Osmotherly and RS could have been deceiving me in order to get control of, and ultimately, to destroy the child sexual abuse prevention program that I had developed.
The Board members and supporters that they brought to the organisation were very powerful and from the highest echelons of society. These included the Editor-in Chief of a major Australian newspaper, the former head of a child-focussed service club, the head of the largest agricultural society in Victoria, the partner from a well-known law firm, an extremely wealthy businessman and former Network 10 board member, the head of a well-known accounting firm, the head of a successful advertising company, and others. Despite having such wealth and powerful connections, in the two-year period that they served on the Board they organised only one donation of $25,000.
The board members subsequently despised the donor and ostracised him from their community (which at the time I thought was incredibly ungrateful!). This is compared with over $200,000 my family and I raised doing the fundraising ourselves in the same time period!
Furthermore, my efforts to secure funding were being actively sabotaged. For example, after an interview on the Channel 9 'Today' show (not Network 10), I was contacted by a well-known multi-national company who said that they would like to fund my program. This well-known company was located in Sydney, and as Robert Osmotherly frequently went to Sydney, I asked if he would have a meeting with them on behalf of our organisation. He agreed.
However, when he returned from the meeting, he said for me not to have much hope and not to contact them for six months while they sorted out a new tax issue. I found this very odd, as they had been so keen to fund the organisation when I had spoken to them. I phoned the woman whom I had spoken to, and she confirmed my suspicions. She had been at the meeting and Robert Osmotherly had told the company not to bother funding us, as ‘the organisation won't be around in six months.’ Needless to say, we did not receive the funding.
During this time period, I was without any income for four months. Many other people would have quit and sought other employment; however, I believed passionately in my cause and did not give up, much to the chagrin of Robert Osmotherly. On one occasion he said to me, ‘You have given so much to this cause in your life, why don't you just give up? You have achieved more good in your short life than many do in a long life-time. Why don't you retire down in the country (I was 28 years old). Go on, just give up.’ When I replied that I would never give up, he stormed away! I was confused by this behaviour, but as I trusted him, I did not think too much more about it at the time.
The Board members achieved one other ‘in-kind’ donation. It was the use of a Honda CRV vehicle. I appreciated the use of the vehicle while I had it (approximately 18 months). However, I later discovered that the head of the company that donated it, a close friend of RS, had just been convicted of child sex offences. These offences included the production of child pornography.
RS organised a meeting with TF, the CEO of a major charitable trust and personal friend of his and other members of the Board. At that meeting I was amazed when TF asked me, ‘Do you ever think that by preventing children from having sexual relationships with adults that you are actually HARMING them?’
I replied by citing the research that strongly indicates adult-child sexual relationships are harmful to children, but he had switched his mind off to my argument. He then stated that in 100 years or so it will be revealed that such relationships are not harmful but that what I was doing was harmful to children. I was certainly taken aback and RS said, ‘Don't worry, TF just thinks on a very high intellectual plane. High above yours.’ Needless to say, we didn't get funding from RS's very good friend after all.
Meeting with Victorian Premiere Jeff Kennett
After winning the award, I had a meeting with a very powerful state politician, Jeff Kennett. At that time, Jeff Kennett was the most powerful person in the state. As well as being politically powerful he also had key business interests, including in the media. When I was first introduced to him, he was staring at me quite sleazily. After he asked what work I do, and my response ‘child abuse prevention,’ he would not make eye contact at all and sought to exclude me from the meeting in a very bullying manner.
It was well-known that Jeff Kennett was a serious domestic violence offender, and that his wife was frequently being admitted to shelters in secret. However, given the power and status of Mr Kennett the issue was never raised in the mainstream media. I was later to be informed by a very reliable and trusted source from the child welfare field that there is a file containing serious child sex offences (against boys) by Jeff Kennett, but because of his enormous power in Victoria, the police would not act on it. I also discovered from a former sex worker that Jeff Kennett frequently paid St Kilda boy sex workers for sex, and that one of these boys ‘talked too much to the wrong people and ended up dead with an 'accidental' heroin overdose.’ It was also alleged that Jeff Kennett intentionally abused the boys in unusual situations (for example, in a helicopter) so that if it ever got out, the boys' testimonies would seem unbelievable. This of, course, is exactly the same strategy used by offenders in the US child-care centre cases. Interestingly, Jeff Kennett has recently commissioned a statue of himself - as a gargoyle [on St Patrick's Cathedral 92]. Later I met with another politician (from the same Liberal Party) who told me that ‘Jeff Kennett is really into that (child sex abuse).’ This same politician told me that in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the police were ‘getting too close to the truth, too close to people in high positions of power who are also pedophiles,’ and so the sex crimes squad’s child exploitation unit had been established to investigate organised pedophilia and ensure it was shut down. (Soon after Detective Senior Sergeant Chris O’Connor was put in charge of the child exploitation unit and the sexual crimes squad, to investigate these offences and ensure that the truth never got out and that this high-ranking network of offenders would never get caught).
Network 10 Produces Pornography
One day I was working on a computer at Network 10. As I was working, Robert Osmotherly approached my computer and put a floppy disk in the machine. He said, ‘Look at this’ and proceeded to bring up images of pornography involving humans and Sesame Street characters. I was very embarrassed and did not know how to react. I asked, ‘Where did you get that?’ and he replied, ‘Oh, someone put it together here,’ indicating that Network 10 was producing pornography. I was later to discover that Network 10 is also producing child pornography and is, in fact, a cult-owned and run television station. I was also later to discover that Robert Osmotherly is a passionate member of a cult.
Robert Osmotherly introduces me to Mr. Television
After winning the abovementioned award, I was invited to go on one of the morning television shows on Network 10. (This was before my association with Robert Osmotherly. Ironically, after my association with Robert Osmotherly, Network 10 did not do any promotion of my work at all!) It is hosted by one of the most famous and longest serving television personalities in Australia, Bert Newton.
Ref: 92 The Age, It's Kennett the gargoyle. 7 June 2002
I was asked to prepare a number of questions that Bert Newton would ask me. I prepared very straight-forward questions that focussed on the work, so I was quite shocked when Bert Newton glared at me and said, ‘Are you doing this because it happened to you?’ I was also stunned when he refused to allow the phone number of my organisation to be presented on the air for donations.
When I later became closely associated with Network 10 Robert Osmotherly would often say to me ‘You know, Bert Newton really likes you. He really likes you!’ This surprised me because my experience of Bert Newton had been the exact opposite of that. (Interestingly, Robert Osmotherly also frequently said to me, ‘Jeff Kennett really likes me since I started helping you. He has me sit next to him at all of the formal functions we attend now.’ This was indeed true, Jeff Kennett, Robert Osmotherly and ‘RS’ were all the best of friends.)
After my experience with Network 10, I subsequently discovered that in the late 1980's Bert Newton was frozen out of the television industry due to allegations of his involvement in the production of child pornography. Although his alleged involvement in this activity was well-publicised at the time, he was never charged and about a year later he joined Network 10.
Since then he has continued to play a significant role in the production of child pornography in Australia. One contact who works on the set of the morning program hosted by Bert Newton finds the work to be very distressing as other on-air talent are very open about their pedophilia. This contact is disgusted, as his sister is a victim of child sex offences, however he does not want to publicly disclose the information as he will lose his job. In addition to the above, I am now in contact with a boy who was paid $2000 a night to have sex with Bert Newton, from the ages of 15 - 18 years.
Introduction to the Pedophile Police Unit
There is a specialised police unit in Victoria that, since the early 1990's, is responsible for investigating all child sex offences involving multiple-victims, offences committed by teachers, as well as child pornography offences [the Child Exploitation Unit within the Sexual Crimes Squad]. I had a meeting with the head of this unit, Detective Senior Sergeant Chris O’Connor, and was very surprised when the first thing he said to me was ‘Does Jeff Kennett know about your program? Jeff Kennett should know about your program.’ I found this a very odd thing for him to say as an opening statement, and especially so, given the information known about Jeff Kennett's alleged sexual abuse of boys. I thought it impossible for this police officer not to know of these things, given his specialist role.
Relationship between Chris O’Connor and network 10 Robert Osmotherly
I subsequently became aware of the ‘unusual’ relationship between Chris O’Connor (police) and Robert Osmotherly (Network 10). I invited Chris O’Connor to do a presentation for the board members. RS was ‘so impressed’ by Chris O’Connor that he wanted to invite him onto the Board of Management (along with all the other pedophile members). I later discovered that Chris O’Connor and Robert Osmotherly, although pretending not to know each other at the Board meeting, have a very cosy relationship indeed.
Specifically, a couple of years ago, a senior staff member at Network 10 was charged with procuring children for prostitution. At the time, the wife of a detective working in Chris O’Connor's unit (Pam Cullen) received a very sudden and significant promotion to become Robert Osmotherly 's Personal Assistant. It was a clear conflict of interest and deeply comprising to the investigation.
Pam Cullen 's husband should not have been involved in investigating Network 10 staff for their involvement in procuring children for prostitution or any other child sex offences connected to Network 10. However, with the appointment of the detective's wife to Personal Assistant of the General Manager of Network 10, it was guaranteed that no other information pertaining to Network 10's illegal activities involving sex offences against children would be pursued by Chris O’Connor or his unit. And Pam Cullen enjoyed her unexpected and incredibly well-paid, new position at Network 10.
Chris O’Connor called in to investigate the Rushworth teacher and other offences
In 1999 fresh allegations were made against the Rushworth pedophile teacher. This time, teenage girls reported the Rushworth pedophile teacher approaches students and asks them to meet him after school to meet 'Winston the Baseball Bat'. They indicated that 'Winston' was the teacher’s penis. They reported that other students were very affected by this behaviour, and some had taken to writing warnings to each-other on the desks, such as ‘If the teacher asks you to meet Winston, don't do it – it’s his dick!!’
At last, the Rushworth pedophile teacher had been named and the victims were prepared to come forward. The teacher admitted to these offences and received 5 sessions of counselling. I then discovered the teacher had conveniently taken up a temporary position in a country school (like a priest being moved from parish to parish when things get too hot). The principal at the original school had not told the new school the circumstances surrounding his transfer and had instead said, ‘Poor teacher, he's had a difficult time lately.’ I later discovered that this Principal was an expert liar and had gone over and above the call of duty in protecting this pedophile teacher.
At this new country high school it was not long before further allegations of child abuse by the Rushworth teacher came out. Incidents of verbal abuse, such as calling students ‘fucking stupid’ were revealed, as well as physical assaults, such as dragging students out of the classroom and throwing them on the floor. In another physical assault, the Rushworth pedophile teacher grabbed the 12-year-old boy by the neck and held him by his neck against a wall. The teacher admitted to the latter assault, wrote a letter of apology and provided financial compensation for the loss of the necklace.
With the pedophile teacher being named and various offences being admitted to, I reported his behaviour for criminal investigation to Chris O’Connor's sex crimes unit. It also provided the opportunity for the 1995 offences to be re-investigated. However, Chris O’Connor interviewed only two of the 12 boys on the list from 1995 and reported to me that as the first two boys did not disclose anything, the others would not be interviewed.
In relation to the offences against the teenage girls, Chris O’Connor said that, at 15 years of age, the girls were ‘too young,’ and he did not want to distress the girls' families by bringing up the topic of child sexual abuse. Therefore, these offences by the pedophile teacher would not be investigated either. I could not believe what I was hearing! Child sex offences are offences because they happen against children! And at 15, the victims were hardly at the young end of the age-spectrum! It was a completely nonsensical reason for not investigating the pedophile.
As for the physical assaults, Chris O’Connor said that he was not responsible for such investigations, so those cases would not be pursued either. He said, ‘You do understand, don't you!’ (it was not a question) and I replied that I did not. However, Chris O’Connor was not prepared to discuss the situation amicably and the pedophile teacher evaded investigation, by both the police in the unit established to investigate such offences, and by the Department of Education.
Further Dealings with Chris O’Connor’s Child Exploitation Unit
Whilst at the country school, disclosures of child sexual abuse by other offenders were made by many children. The disclosures centred on two offenders in the town. The specialised Child Exploitation Unit arSammy did arrive after school that day on her bike, and her face was visibly disfigured. I was told by her best friend that she had been bashed, but her friend would not tell me who did this to Sammy. Her smashed-in face was warning enough for all of the children. The police later went to her house, where she fainted upon seeing them. She did not disclose any abuse at all. Despite the fact that her face was visibly disfigured and swollen from a recent assault, the police did not pursue the matter further.
The specialised Child Exploitation Unit totally destroyed any chance of the truth being revealed and the victims receiving the justice they deserved. For example, they left children waiting all day to be interviewed and did not end up interviewing many of them, including witnesses to attempted child-rapes.rived to ‘investigate.’ However, the main victim of the sexual abuse, Sammy, a 12-year-old girl, did not attend school that day.
The Child Exploitation Unit did interview one 12-year-old victim (‘Lucy’) and totally intimidated her. When the girl indicated that the police didn't believe her the first time she told them what had happened to her, one police officer lent right over the top of her, pointed his finger directly in her face and hissed ‘Don't say that! You don't know that!’ I was shaking, and I was an adult sitting next to the girl! As she walked out of the interview room, the police officer said in voice loud enough for the girl to hear, ‘We have serious concerns about the truth of what this girl is saying.’
It had the desired effect, Lucy burst into tears and said, ‘The police don't believe me. I don't want to keep going.’ The Welfare Co-ordinator, who was also in the room during the interview, and who is also an experienced sexual assault counsellor and child protection officer, said to me, ‘That wasn't an interview. That was designed to stop a child from talking.’
The Child Exploitation Unit did not pursue the case any further on the following grounds: No-one would believe Sammy if she disclosed the abuse in the future, as she hadn't disclosed the first time. (The fact that she had been bashed would not be seen as relevant to her hesitancy to disclose?!) Lucy had led all the children on (to make up ‘stories’ of sexual abuse for fun, even though the children were visibly traumatised). In relation to the sexual abuse of a boy, they said, ‘men try to touch other men's penises after football matches all the time’ so it was not worthy of pursuing.
And finally, the Child Exploitation Unit claimed that there was not enough evidence - this is despite the fact that there were witnesses to the attempted rapes of the children, and the testimonies of many victims provided significant corroboration. Also, many adults reported having been sexually abused by the same offenders when they were children, but the police refused to interview these adults.
The Case is Stonewalled by Child Exploitation Unit head Chris O’Connor
The police recommended that the Welfare Co-ordinator make reports to DOCS (Child Protection Department) as they stated it was a ‘protective issue, not a criminal one.’ The Welfare Co-ordinator did this, but weeks passed and the children were not interviewed, and she inquired as to why. She was informed that DOCS would not be taking any further action ‘on the advice of the police.’ So, after telling the Welfare Co-ordinator to take the case to DOCS for investigation, the Police effectively stone-walled the investigation by advising Child Protection not to investigate.
Relationship between Robert Osmotherly & Chris O’Connor
During the two-year association I had with Robert Osmotherly, ‘DS’ and the Board of Management that they had established, I trusted them implicitly. Although incidents occurred that often left me confused, and often baffled, and of-course, frequently without funding, I continued to trust them. DS always said to me ‘I'm here to help.’ It was his favourite saying.
I therefore reported all of the events that had occurred at the northern secondary school and the Rushworth school, to Robert Osmotherly. Osmotherly then told me that he knew Detective Senior Sergeant Chris O’Connor (in contrast to his earlier pretence of not knowing him at all!). He stated that Chris O’Connor is a ‘really good bloke.’ However, when I spelt out the stonewalling of the Rushworth case, Robert Osmotherly 's face twitched and he became visibly uncomfortable. I had never seen Robert Osmotherly react in this way. It was soon after this that very strange events began to occur.
On one occasion Robert Osmotherly was on the phone to his ‘boss’ (of Network 10). When his boss realized that I was present he began to speak aggressively, not knowing that I could hear him. He was saying, ‘put her on the phone to me, I'll sort her out!’ Of course, I found this all to be very strange as I had never even met this man before. However, when Robert Osmotherly apologised on behalf of his boss, I accepted it and put it out of my mind - again, because at that time I trusted him.
I had recently purchased a very cheap country property that I planned to use as a retreat for abused children. I invited the board members to view the site. None attended, however Robert Osmotherly said that he wanted to go - alone with me. He said he had set aside the whole day for it and was putting me under enormous pressure to go with him. I felt very uncomfortable about it as he had insisted on a number of details.
First, it had to be a complete secret. I wasn't even allowed to tell my parents that I was going, let alone where I was going. Second, he had to drive. I wasn't even allowed to drive my car to the station and for us to drive together from there (my car had to stay at my unit carpark). And third, Robert Osmotherly insisted on picking me up from my unit before daybreak. This was unnecessary as the trip only takes two-hours. Of course, all of these bizarre ‘conditions’ and the huge pressure that Robert Osmotherly was putting me under made me feel extremely wary. With my parents' help I made up an excuse at the very last minute and did not go.
However, if I had done as Robert Osmotherly had wanted and if anything had happened to me that day, I could have gone missing without a trace.
Sammy's relationship to Network 10
‘Sammy,’ the 12-year-old-girl from Rushworth, was a main victim of the sexual abuse being perpetrated against children in the town. She referred to the offender (a man in his 60's) as her ‘boyfriend,’ and her close friends knew of the sexual activities between her and the man. The offender also happened to be the best friend of her father.
I was asked to provide support to Sammy, and in one session it became apparent that Sammy's personality had been totally fragmented. In her words, she was like ‘a house with mirrors everywhere, smashed into broken bits.’ It was later that I learned about the use by powerful secret societies of trauma-based mind control, sexual abuse and satanic ritual to force children to create ‘alter personalities.’ Other information from Sammy has led me to believe that she has been subjected to all these forms of abuse.
Sammy also told me that her relative takes her to Queensland (Australia) ‘whenever I want’ and that she can get ‘whatever I want, too.’ It was only later that I learned of the immense significance of what Sammy was telling me. Sammy's relative is a Board member of Network 10, who is based in Queensland. It is my belief that Sammy was being used in Network 10's production of child pornography, both in Victoria and Queensland. Here is another example of the police's failure to investigate a case with ominous connections to Network 10. In particular, Detective Senior Sergeant Chris O’Connor’s unit that has been established specifically and exclusively to investigate such cases well and truly ensured that this case would go nowhere.
After two sessions with Sammy I was told that the school had ‘received complaints’ that I had ‘brainwashed the children’ and the support sessions were terminated.
More Connections - the Cult in Rushworth
I was to learn later that there is a Satanic cult operating in Rushworth. I learned this from two independent sources. One was from a Christian woman who was raised in the town and who since had moved elsewhere. The other was from an adult survivor of the cult, Mick. The Satanic cult is very powerful within the town and was headed up by the most powerful and influential families of the town. One of the members owned and operated the photographic studio in the town. Furthermore, Jeff Kennett, the powerful politician mentioned previously, has significant ‘business operations’ extremely close to Rushworth, and he was driven (by his driver) to this location every week.
Mick's Experiences
‘Mick’ was introduced to the satanic cult as a very young child by an extended relative. Mick informed me of many experiences he was subjected to as a child in this cult. From everything that I have been told by Mick, the cult appears to be the Illuminati operating in Australia. Mick now suffers from MPD/DID but has survived his experiences remarkably well considering the traumas he has been through.
As a child Mick was forced to attend blood-rituals, where animals and small children were sacrificed, and their blood and organs consumed. Mick was required to clean up the blood after these rituals. The children and babies were street children or were taken from orphanages, so that they could not be traced and no-one would know, or care, if they went missing. The rituals were spoken in Latin and were clearly satanic. The rituals took place at various locations, including Rushworth. Mick and other children would be driven to the rituals in the boots of cars.
The members of the cult were extremely powerful members of society. There were numerous politicians (mainly from the Liberal Party). These people would often speak of important events before they would actually occur. Mick was also sexually abused by Graham Kennedy, the famous television personality and professional partner of Bert Newton.
Mick was one of the many children who were used to ‘host’ parties of the cult members. At these parties the children acted as waiters and were naked. Many of the adults, but not all, would wear masks at these parties. After the food was served the adults would have sex with the children. Children who tried to escape were killed, often in front of the other children in order to control the children through fear. Once Mick and another child had tried to escape but were caught. The other child was murdered by having her head smashed open with a rock. Her body was then dumped in a nearby mineshaft. Mick was spared the same fate, as he was told that he was the ‘chosen one,’ selected to carry on the traditions of the group.
Mick was forced to participate in the production of child pornography, including movies as well as still photographs. This involved sexual activity with other children as well as adults. He would get paid a small amount for his sexual ‘services,’ while the relative who brought him to the events would get paid a large amount of money. As he got older, Mick was no longer used for sexual purposes by the group but was required to recruit new younger children. When he was old enough (in his 20's), Mick was able to escape the group, but they continue to contact him with threats.
Robert Osmotherly's ‘Religion
During my association with Robert Osmotherly I got to know him quite well. One day he informed me of his "religious" beliefs. These were the opposite of mine (as I am a Christian). I was also informed by one of his colleagues in the media industry that Bob's ‘religion’ is ‘weird shit.’ At the time I had not heard of the Illuminati and it is only now that I realise that Robert Osmotherly is an active and dedicated member of the Australian Illuminati. The symbolism used in Network 10 promotional material is totally consistent with that of the Illuminati, such as the key colours - blue and gold, and key imagery involving flames.
Telephone Interference and Intimidation Begins
It was after reporting the events at Rushworth to Robert Osmotherly that unusual events began to occur. My phone line began clicking, and the voice-mail service recorded the sounds of a tape clicking over (note that voicemail does not use tapes for recording so the tape was from another source). Two of my organisations' staff members had their cars broken into on the same night.
In one car, the book ‘The Clocks’ by Agatha Christie was on the front seat. The book is the story of a series of murders where the only evidence left at each murder scene is a clock. On the front seat of the other staff member's car was a broken clock. Nothing was stolen from either car. On one occasion I purposely said over the phone that I kept all of my files in the backyard shed (this was not true, I just wanted to test the security of the telephone line). Soon after, the back shed was broken into.
Board Members Propose a Name-Change
At one board meeting, the head of the Agricultural Society, proposed to launch the organisation, despite the fact that it had been operating for nearly two years. He had three ideas. The first was that a rodeo would be organised, and whenever a rider fell from their horse or bull, money would be donated. Thus, it would be ‘money for every bruised butt.’
The second proposal was to organise a ‘beauty pageant’ for 12-year-old girls. There would be an award given for ‘the prettiest girl on the shiniest pony.’ A photo of her on her horse would be used as a centre-page-spread in the leading newspaper (courtesy of the Editor-In-Chief contact). The third proposal was to have a photo of sexually abused children in an ‘animal birthing centre.’ This photo would also be published in the leading newspaper. The Ag Society head also proposed a name-change. He proposed to change the name of the organisation to 'Shine.' I did not want to do this, and the members of the Board put me under incredible pressure to adopt this name-change.
It was only later that I learnt about the Illuminati connections and the significance of their symbolism and language. 'Shine' is a very significant Illuminati term.
Realisation Dawns
It was at this point that I realised that something was dreadfully wrong. I rejected all of the proposed ideas (very politely, but firmly). I also called for all outstanding Criminal Records Checks to be undertaken immediately. The Criminal Records Check had been designed only to identify whether a person had committed any sexual assaults against children or had any involvement in related offences, such as child pornography. Therefore, if a person had smoked marijuana in their university days, this would not be revealed in the Criminal Record Check. This was a policy that I had insisted on right from the start (nearly two years ago), however Robert Osmotherly had given numerous excuses every time I had requested his. He even went so far as to suggest that he would organise it "on the sly" using his "contacts in the force". I did not pursue that option and instead gave the Board members two weeks to complete their forms and submit them. Robert Osmotherly, while initially embracing the policy at the start, ultimately refused to submit a
Criminal Records Check.
 The Significance of Shine
I discovered that there is an Australian Internet-based group called 'Shine'. The site includes a membership section where members are able to exchange photos etc, including ‘S&M’ and ‘hard-core Bert Newton style.’ It is a child pornography club that operates similar to the notorious Wonderland club. I noted the code-names used by the operators of the Shine site, one of which was Natas (Satan backwards). I went to the Network 10 site and entered a secret section on the site (which members of the public would never know about). It asked for the password, so I typed in Natas, which took me to another level. It then asked for the next level password, which I didn't have. The computer then went berserk and was almost impossible to turn off. I managed to do so only by pulling out all of the connections. Soon after this, the Internet site for Network 10 was shut down and remained shut down for a number of months, which is rather unusual given that Network 10 is such a large company. After that year, the Department of Education put on a concert involving thousands of children. They chose to call it 'Shine'. This was an interesting choice of title, given my experience and other people's experiences of the Department of Education protecting pedophile teachers. A further interesting connection was that Robert Osmotherly and RS organised a meeting between us and the senior managers of the Department of Education. When we all met, the men acted as if they did not know each other and were meeting for the first time (exchanging business cards, etc). However, when the men thought I was gone (I was in fact standing just out of their sight), it was very clear that they not only knew each other, but that they knew each other extremely well. They were saying things such as ‘Great to see you again, mate!’ and slapping each other on the back!
Escape from Robert Osmotherly and the Pedophile Board
After I discovered what was going on (at least, I started to discover what was going on) I knew I had to break away from Robert Osmotherly, RS and the people they had put on the Board of Management. The AGM was coming up and I organised for my family to attend. We did this secretly, as we knew that the phone lines were being monitored. On the night of the AGM, the board members were visibly shocked when they saw that members of my family were attending. It transpired that, rather than undertake a Criminal Records Check, the members of the Board had planned to resign on the spot.
This served two purposes;
(1) they avoided having to undergo the Criminal Records Check;
(2) the organisation would effectively fold as there would be no-one to take up the Board member positions. This is exactly what Robert Osmotherly had wanted from the beginning, but especially since I had begun to uncover the corrupt pedophile police activities and the crimes in Rushworth. However, as my family had attended the meeting, they were able to take up the positions on the Board, and the organisation did not fold. On the surface, the meeting was very amicable and civilized, Robert Osmotherly tried to remain calm, but he ended up storming out of the meeting half-an-hour early

Abstract: Disney animated films continue to serve as an influential form of media that shapes children’s development of beliefs about the world surrounding them, including the construct of the family. However, a census analysis as to how Disney animated films represent depictions of families has yet to be conducted.
To fill this gap, we assessed the qualities of family demographics, structure, and function in a census analysis of 85 Disney animated films from the years 1937–2018. Results indicated that single parent families (41.3%) was the most predominantly represented family structure, followed by nuclear (25%) and guardian (19.2%). We also observed that the first depiction of a non-Caucasian family was presented in the 1990s, with a growing number of ethnically diverse families since that time. However, minimal interactions between families of differing ethnicities are noted. Overall, over 75% of all Disney animated films depicted warm and supportive familial interactions, with 78.8% of the films illustrating a positive relationship between the protagonist and his/her family. Analysis and implications are offered for parents and educators who wish to further understand the content Disney animated films offer in depicting families. Keywords: content analysis; cultivation; Disney; family; family structure; family function 1. Introduction and Literature Review Media representations of the family to younger audiences have been of interest since the emergence of television (Morgan et al. 1999, p. 47). Singer and Singer (1984) equated the degree of influence of media families to children’s real-life interactions with parents and family environment. Indeed, media family portrayals provide children with exemplars that offer information about family construction, home environment, parent-child interactions, and family roles. Thus, children may identify with and experience emotional bonds to certain characters to the extent to which they develop parasocial relationships, draw comparisons between media families and real-life interactions, and imitate behavioral practices (Callister et al. 2007; Robinson and Skill 2001). Whereas past research has moderately explored family portrayals on prime-time television (Butsch 1992; Callister et al. 2007; Dates and Stroman 2001; Douglas and Olson 1995; Greenberg and Collette 1997; Heintz-Knowles 2001; Mastro and Greenberg 2000; Merritt and Stroman 1993; Moore 1992; Pohan and Mathison 2007; Power et al. 1993; Robinson and Skill 2001; Skill and Robinson 1994), it is important to examine similar depictions in film. Black and Bevan (1992) argued that film’s lengthier format and freedom from commercial breaks may elevate movies to a more powerful medium than television. Yet, research that investigates family portrayals in film is somewhat sparse, particularly regarding media content that appeals to children (Holcomb et al. 2015; Callister et al. 2007). Some scholars propose Disney films as key influencers of children’s perceptions due to their ubiquitous presence and repetitive consumption (Giroux and Pollock 2010; Holcomb et al. 2015). For over eighty years, Disney has continued to entertain young audiences with a wide array of content. Soc. Sci. 2018, 7, 47; doi:10.3390/socsci7030047 1 Soc. Sci. 2018, 7, 47 From films and video games to lunch boxes, the Disney characters and their stories have been recurring cultural motifs in modern society. Yet, greater exploration is needed in understanding the patterns and themes of such a widely distributed entertainment source. Consequently, the following examination explores portrayals of the family within Disney animated films from 1937 to 2018. We offer an analysis of the general representation, construction, and function of families within Disney animated films over time in retrospect to a discussion of the effects of media on children. 1.1. Media Effects of Family Portrayals on Children Turner and West (1998) purported that film and other forms of visual media offer possible modeling influences through increased accessibility and repeated audience consumption. In a national study, Leon and Angst (2005) found that 99% of children aged two to eighteen live in a home containing at least one television and noted that children watch close to 4 h of television daily. Moreover, McDonough (2009) asserted that media viewing among children was at an eight-year high, with two to five-year-olds watching visual content about thirty-two hours a week and six to eleven-year-olds watching about twenty-eight hours. More recent research suggests that some of this time has transitioned to other screen formats, such as browsing websites, using social media and/or playing video, computer, or mobile games. In a nationally representative sample of US adolescents (n = 2658), Rideout (2016) reported that children ages eight to twelve year-olds spent close to 2 and half hours (2:26) daily watching TV/DVDs/videos with a total daily screen media time of 4 h, 36 min. Extensive media use suggests a further exploration for not only the types of content children consume but also the possible effects of repeated consumption. Specific to family portrayals, Callister et al. (2007) outlined three potential media effect factors. First, media family depictions can be perceived as reality—particularly as children may struggle to distinguish between portrayed reality and reality (Douglas 2003; Mazur and Emmers-Sommer 2003).
As Callister et al. (2007) explained, children may look to family media portrayals as “a type of touchstone for evaluating their own experiences” (p. 147). Similarly, the research of Dorr et al. (1989) argued that children often associate qualities of television families with real-life families. Callister, Robinson, and Clark further identified the amount of consumed visual media as an important variable related to media effects. For instance, Buerkel-Rothfuss et al. (1982) observed a significant increase in children’s estimates of the number of conflicts real-life families experience among heavy consumers of family situation comedies versus light viewers. Moreover, Morgan et al. (1999) assessed the acceptance of traditional versus nontraditional family values and found that heavy viewers of television more often aligned with nontraditional values portrayed on many prime-time television series in comparison to light viewers.
A third factor explores the comparisons children make between other families and their own family. Bandura (1994) suggested that “during the course of their daily lives, people have direct contact with only a small sector of the physical and social environment.
They generally travel the same routes, visit the same places, and see the same group of associates” (p. 66). This sector of people often narrows for preschoolers and pre-adolescents (Buerkel-Rothfuss et al. 1982). As such, children may rely on media portrayals for information regarding typical family function and structure. For example, Douglas (2003) proposed that through media consumption, some children develop ideas that reinforce negative stereotypes concerning minority families, particularly among children who experience limited contact with minority groups. Additionally, some studies observed that children as young as three-years-old convey ageist attitudes towards older adults (Aday et al. 1996a; Aday et al. 1996b; Rich et al. 1983). Such findings are intriguing in comparison to studies that revealed that 44% of older characters in Disney animated films from 2004 to 2016 (Zurcher and Robinson 2017) and 38% of older characters in children’s cartoons (Robinson and Anderson 2006) are portrayed as negative.
Related Media Effects Theories: Cultivation Analysis and Social Learning Theory
Two communication theories that provide insight into the possible effects associated with repeated media exposure are cultivation analysis and social learning theory. Cultivation analysis examines media’s role in shaping or “cultivating” individual perceptions of social reality (Gerbner et al. 2002). The theory asserts that the greater exposure one experiences to media content, the greater the likelihood that individuals may perceive their reality as similar. Consequently, cultivation analysis centers on aggregated messaging, or the enduring thematic patterns that viewers encounter, rather than on the influence of a single episode or program (Signorielli and Morgan 2001).
Central to cultivation analysis is the distinction between light and heavy viewers of media (Gerbner et al. 2002). Buerkel-Rothfuss et al. (1982) conducted an examination of what children learn from TV families. Greenberg and colleagues found that heavy viewers were more likely to form the belief that real-world families show greater support and concern for one another. A more recent study examined beliefs about fathers, gendered roles, and television viewing habits among first-time expectant parents (Kuo and Ward 2016). Results suggested that an increased attribution of realism to televised content predicted belief in gendered family roles; additionally, heavy television viewers were more likely to downplay the role of the father as it relates to a child’s development. Kuo and Ward argued that first-time expectant fathers may be “especially vulnerable to media messages about father roles” (p. 1)
Another theory that evaluates possible effects related to media consumption is social learning theory (SLT, Bandura 1994). SLT differs from cultivation analysis, as it directs attention from the influence of repeated exposure on individual perceptions to observational learning through modeling. SLT posits that learning is not merely derived from real-life encounters, but that individuals further observe, evaluate, are instructed from, and possibly imitate various forms of models surrounding them—including mass media models. As Mayes and Valentine (1979) described, next to parents, mass media forms such as television, movies, and books are children’s most influential sources of behavioral modeling.
The media effects literature provides the foreground for studying portrayals of families in media. Given that children’s learning is a vicarious experience and that many children encounter visual media regularly, it stands to reason that repeated exposure to portrayed modeled behavior can influence children’s perceptions of social norms. Thus, in light of both cultivation analysis and SLT, assessment of the types of messages that children encounter regularly is important for understanding possible related effects.
1.2. Media Portrayals of the Family
1.2.1. General Family Representations
The majority of the family portrayals literature examines depictions on prime-time television; minimal research has applied this focus to film. Additionally, a gap exists within the literature, with most prime-time television studies conducted between the early 1990s to mid-2000s.
Family qualities most often explored of prime-time television include constructs such as family demographics, family structure, and family function. Regarding demographic portrayals, several scholars note a deficiency in the representation of minority families within popular media (Douglas 2003; Moore 1992; Robinson and Skill 2001). Moore (1992), for instance, argued that there was a lack of minority family representation on prime-time television from 1950 to 1990. Robinson and Skill (2001) echoed similar findings to Moore, suggesting that families portrayed from 1990–1995 on prime-time television were 80.5% Caucasian, 13.5% African American, 5.3% racially mixed, less than 1% Asian, and 0% Hispanic. Some scholars assert improvements to ethnic representation percentages in later years. For instance, Romine (cited in Lisotta 2005) reported ethnic representations on prime-time television during the 2005 to 2006 season as the following: 76% Caucasian, 14% African American, 6% Hispanic, and less than 3% Asian/Pacific Islanders.
1.2.2. Family Structure and Function
In addition to family ethnic representations, media portrayals often provide children with exemplars of family composition and interactions (Levy 1991). In assessing these exemplars, Morgan et al. (1999) proposed that family portrayal investigations must consider two distinct characteristics of families: structure and function. Family structure refers to the formation of the family (e.g., total number of individuals, the number of children) and the presentation of divorce, single parents, or stepfamily members. Family function examines family member interactions and the family relationship climate (e.g., love and supporting versus hostile and non-binding environments).
Family structure.
Two basic family structures are traditional and nontraditional families. The traditional or nuclear family structure includes two parents with dependent children in the home. Other types of family structures include single parent, extended, guardian, and reconstituted (or blended) families.
Some social critics link the “decay of the conventional family configuration with the rise of television” (Skill et al. 1987, p. 361). Indeed, several scholars noted a decrease in “conventional” family configurations, or families constituted of parents and married couples without children from the 1950s–1990s within prime-time television (Moore 1992; Skill and Robinson 1994). Divorce and remarriage, blended families, cultural intermixing, and gay and lesbian couples have played a part in forming “contemporary families” (Mazur and Emmers-Sommer 2003, p. 159). The definition of the family diverged from the traditional family in the 1990s and into the early twenty-first century as it began to include a greater array of structures (Staricek 2011). Thus, the definition of the traditional family experienced a shift as families began to be defined as entities that “agreed upon societal rules and expectations specifying appropriate and inappropriate ways to behave in a particular society” (Abu-Laban and Abu-Laban 1999, p. 53).
Other explorations highlight an increased number of traditional family depictions in children’s media in comparison to other media. For instance, when exploring family portrayals on children’s programing during the 2005–2006 season, Callister et al. (2007) observed 85% two parent families, with 8% single parents (82.3% single mothers and 17% single fathers), 4% other relatives, and 3% non-relatives only. Of the depicted nuclear families, 89% included biological parents, whereas 9% were blended families, and 2.3% had adoptive parents. Callister et al. asserted that the representation of nuclear families in children’s prime-time television was above the U.S. national average. Similarly, portrayals of children living with a single mother or a single father were lower than national averages, whereas children who lived with extended family or non-relatives were higher than average.
Dissonance between media exemplars and reality may create tension between children’s perceptions and expectations. As Mazur and Emmers-Sommer (2003) summarized, “exposure to more nontraditional views of the family might aid in individuals’ understanding, acceptance, and comfort with alternative ways of viewing and defining the family” (p. 160). However, Robinson and Skill (2001) argued that divergence from traditional family structures may, in turn, implicate the precedent that nontraditional family structures are normative.
Family function.
Bryant and Alison Bryant (2001) compiled an extensive overview of the family portrayals literature in their book, Television and the American Family. In their examination of 258 prime-time episodes from the 1990s, Bryant et al. (2001) argued that prime-time television families in the 1990s appeared to be psychologically healthy—emphasizing depictions of cohesion within family units, adaptability, and good communication skills. Bryant and colleagues further noted that positive depictions within family prime-time television portrayals from the 1990s increased over time. Their results revealed that families from 1999 were “were better connected emotionally, more suited to change, and better in communication skills than those of the 1991 and 1996 samples” (p. 267).
The research of Callister et al. (2007) presented a more mixed depiction of family function. Specific to portrayals of primary caregivers in children’s prime-time television shows, Callister et al. observed that whereas female caregivers were often portrayed as competent and mature, nearly 40% of male caregivers were depicted as buffoons. Moreover, 25% of male caregivers were depicted as immature. Callister and colleagues commented that observations of American culture in which children disrespect parents are reinforced, to some degree, on prime-time television.
Related to general family portrayals, Larson (2001) assessed sibling interactions in situation comedies from the 1950s to the 1990s. She asserted that sibling engagements on television presented a predominately positive image, with 63% of communication interactions coded as positive or affiliative. However, Larson observed an absence of sibling identity development and that family portrayals were often devoid of siblings working with one another to negotiate with parents. Again, continued analysis of the role media plays in shaping perceptions of the family is needed for a greater understanding of the possible implications for mass audiences.
1.2.3. Family Portrayals in Disney Animated Films
The role of Disney in the lives of millions around the world is momentous. As a 169-billion-dollar industry, the Disney Corporation serves as a global leader with respect to media creation and product distribution (Forbes 2017). Furthermore, Lin (2001) asserted that once a movie is purchased, children view Disney films repeatedly—even to the same extent that they view children’s television series.
Parallel to the wide dissemination of the Disney brand, storylines, and characters, examination of Disney film content depictions is also of large interest. Such investigations include gender portrayals and the modeling of gender (Coyne et al. 2016; Davis 2006; Davis 2015; England et al. 2011; Gillam and Wooden 2008; Hoerrner 1996), feminism (Downey 1996; Sawyer 2011), race and diversity (Cheu 2013; Faherty 2001; Lacroix 2004; Towbin et al. 2004), aggressive behaviors (Coyne and Whitehead 2008), the portrayal of older characters (Robinson et al. 2007; Zurcher and Robinson 2017), and pro-social behaviors (Padilla-Walker et al. 2013)
Assessment of family portrayals within Disney films have, comparatively, been minimally explored. To date, most investigations explore specific qualities related to family portrayals (e.g., the presence and role of single parents, themes related to couples and families in Disney princess films, etc.) in comparison to broader representations of the family and family structures. For instance, Junn (1997) observed that when lead characters suffered the loss of a parent, this absence often featured the loss of a mother rather than the father. Moreover, DiPirro (2007) observed that 63% of Disney princesses had fathers and only 25% had mothers. Others posited that it is through Disney’s portrayal of marginalized women and elevated men within the nuclear family that the need for a princess to find love and a marriage for herself surfaced (Hecht 2011). Similarly, Garlen and Sandlin (2017) asserted that audiences may create unrealistic expectations of family, love, and marriage that are “socially harmful to women” through the repetitive consumption of Disney princess films (p. 960). Garlen and Sandlin further declared that a consistent emphasis on true love partners, marriage, and the romantic ideal perpetuates the belief that the highest degree of happiness can only be achieved by finding one’s “true love” and marital success. Such precedence within Disney princess films, may, in turn, set individuals up for failure and is labeled by the researchers as a “cruel optimism” (p. 958).
A few investigations explore Disney family-related themes in smaller samples of Disney animated films. To illustrate, Tanner et al. (2003) identified four overarching thematic patterns regarding family portrayals within 26 Disney animated films: patterns included (1) “family relationships are a strong priority”; (2) “families are diverse, but the diversity is often simplified”; (3) “fathers are elevated while mothers are marginalized”; and (4) “couple relationships are created by ‘love at first sight’, are easily maintained, and are often characterized by gender-based power differentials” (p. 355).
A comprehensive analysis of the portrayal of families in Disney animated films has yet be undertaken. Junn (1997) called attention to a gap in the family portrayals literature, suggesting the need for further research of Disney films. She stated:
Future research must examine the relation between media depictions and children’s perceptions, in addition to further study of the other variables that may influence children’s developing concepts of love, marriage, and sexuality (e.g., age, gender, ethnicity, culture, media, family structure). [...] while the Disney name and traditions are without a doubt beloved by many around the world as symbolizing ‘wholesome, family entertainment’, this study reinforces the fact that the media, including the film industry, also represents a social and cultural institution that ultimately creates, produces, and disseminates ideological constructs in the form of a commercial mass product (Levy 1991). Armed with this economic and political perspective, both researchers and the public might be better equipped to demand accountability and high quality programming from the media industries.
We are not aware of any research that has conducted a broad, comprehensive analysis of the portrayal of families within Disney animated films. As Disney animated films are repeatedly watched and offer possible cultivated and learning implications, this investigation seeks to provide a greater understanding of the portrayals of families within Disney animated films from 1937 to 2018. The following research questions served as a guide in this inquiry:
RQ1: What are the predominant family structures that appear within Disney animated films? RQ2: How are families represented in terms of ethnicity? RQ3: What is the composition of families in terms of the number of children and siblings? RQ4: Are families supportive or unsupportive of one another? RQ5: Are the relationships between the protagonist and their families positive, negative, or neutral? RQ6: What is the predominant family relationship climate? RQ7: Have any of the aforementioned qualities changed over time?
2. Materials and Methods
2.1. Film Selection Procedure
The present investigation evaluated a census of 85 Disney animated feature films through content analysis. To create this census, we integrated two Disney animated film census lists from previous explorations beginning with Snow White in 1937 and ending with Coco in 2017.
The first film list was constructed by Robinson et al. (2007) in their assessment of older characters in Disney animated films. This list was comprised of a census of 34 Disney animated films from 1937 to 2004. The research of Robinson and colleagues excluded computer animated films, as their original intent was to only evaluate animated films. As computer animated films have increased in popularity and production, the present analysis added 6 computer animated films that were released during 1937–2004, including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Dinosaur, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo.
The second census film list was constructed by Zurcher and Robinson (2017) as a follow-up examination to the research of Robinson et al. (2007). This list included a total of 42 films from 2004 to 2016 and was comprised of both animated and computer animated films. Additionally, two animated Disney films (Cars 3 and Coco) have premiered since the publication of Zurcher and Robinson (2017) and were added.
2.2. Coding Procedures
A modified version of the coding sheet developed by Callister et al. (2007) that assessed family portrayals on children’s programing was used; this coding sheet evaluates general family representations and relationships, including family composition, ethnic representation, structure, support, and general familial relationship environment.
Two independent coders received approximately 5 h of training prior to commencing the study. Coding instruction included training in (1) family identification and composition; (2) extended family identification and composition; (3) family ethnic representations; (4) overall family relationship and support; and (5) overall relationship quality between the protagonist and his/her family.
The inclusion of a family was identified through at least one of the following qualities: (1) married or unmarried adults with dependent or adult children; (2) homeowner(s) with dependent children; and/or (3) characters that performed parent-like duties and were depicted as genetically or legally related (Callister et al. 2007; Skill and Robinson 1994). Additionally, we coded for predominant family structures or families that maintained an influential role to the film’s central plot. Family structures or members that were featured briefly (usually less than 5 s on-screen) or that did not offer general character information (such as the names of characters) were excluded. Surrogate families, or other organizational structures that featured strong relationships (e.g., workplace members, sports teams), were also excluded (Douglas and Olson 1995)
Cohen’s (1960) Kappa was used to establish inter-coder reliability. Coders evaluated 10% of the total number of included animated films separately and discussed variances. All reliabilities achieved 85% or higher. Coding discrepancies were discussed and resolved by both coders.
2.3. Variables of Interest
Operational definitions as identified by the research of Callister et al. (2007) regarding family structure and function were used. Definitions for variables of interest are provided below.
Family configuration.
Structural classifications of family configuration mirrored definitions provided by the US Census. Nuclear families included families in which both parents (either biological, stepparents, or adoptive) were present with dependent children. Single-parent families involved only one parent present with dependent children. Reconstituted families, or blended families, were defined as a nuclear family in which families are joined through a new marriage from a previous marriage. Empty-nest families were defined as married couples who have adult children who no longer live in the home. Childless families included married couples who do not have children. Extended families were households that encompassed family members other than parents and their children (such as cousins, uncles, aunts, and grandparents, etc.). Finally, guardian families were defined as families led by individuals who are not the legal parents of children but who assumed responsibility for the involved child or children (Skill and Robinson 1994).
Family support.
Family support was categorized through the variables of supportive, unsupportive, and mixed support. Supportive families displayed instances in which family members assisted one another through affection, emotional support, and/or positive parent-child interactions. A clear example of this is Simba’s father, Mufasa, in The Lion King. Unsupportive families illustrated negative parent-child relationships in which parents were uninvolved, reckless, cruel, and/or uncaring towards children, such as the relationships between Cinderella, her stepmother, and her stepsisters in Cinderella. Families that contained both supportive and unsupportive family members were coded as mixed support. For instance, the film Peter Pan portrays an unsupportive father with a supportive mother. The relationship between the siblings of John, Michael, and Wendy depict both instances of being supportive and unsupportive. Consequently, this family organization was categorized as mixed support.
Family relationship climate.
Family support was related to an assessment of the general family relationship climate. Family relationship climates were coded as either warm, cold, or mixed climate. Warm relationship climates included qualities such as family support, love, kindness, and/or positive parent-child interactions. For instance, the Robinson family in Meet the Robinsons depicts numerous instances in which the entire family shows love, support, and sincere care towards each family member. Contrastingly, cold relationship climates displayed familial interactions that are unsupportive, unkind, and/or illustrate negative parent-child interactions. The relationship between Snow White and her stepmother, The Queen, in the film Snow White, for example, depicts a cold family relationship.
In instances that showed interactions of both warm and cold family interactions, the family climate was coded as mixed climate. A strong example of this occurs in the film Tarzan among the relationships between Tarzan, his gorilla father, Kerchak, and gorilla mother, Kala. Whereas Kala illustrates love, support, and affection towards Tarzan, Kerchak portrays a predominately unsupportive, detached relationship with Tarzan. Consequently, this family portrayal was coded as mixed climate.
Protagonist to family relations.
The relationship between a protagonist and his or her family was also assessed. A protagonist was defined as the film’s central character, or the character that drives the main storyline (e.g., Mulan in Mulan, Belle in Beauty and the Beast). Once a protagonist was identified, the relationship that he or she held with family members was coded as either positive, negative, or mixed relationship. Positive protagonist-family relationships involved interactions in which family members treated one another with kindness, love, and respect. Belle from Beauty and the Beast and her relationship with her father, for example, illustrated a positive relationship. Negative depictions displayed protagonist-family interactions in which members were mean, unkind, hateful, and/or cold. For instance, the relationship between Rapunzel and Mother Gothel in Tangled was coded as negative. In films that illustrate a character’s transition from negative to positive or vice-versa, coders accounted for the predominant portrayal or the depiction that was illustrated through the majority of the film. Additionally, families that illustrated both positive and negative interactions with the protagonist were coded as mixed relationships.
3. Results
A total of 85 films created a census of Disney animated films from 1937 to 2018. Of the 85 Disney animated film census, 12 films did not depict family representations that met our family identification criteria (see materials and methods section). These films included Robin Hood, The Rescuers, Home on the Range, Monsters Inc., Cars, Wall-E, Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure, Cars 2, Wreck-It Ralph, Planes, Planes Fire and Rescue, and Cars 3. Seventy-three films included portrayals of families that met the identified criteria for a total of 104 families. The film, Elena of Avelor, contained the highest number of family depictions with three portrayals. Twenty-nine films portrayed two families, and 43 films portrayed only one family depiction.
3.1. General Representations of Families
RQ1 explored predominant family structures that appeared within Disney animated films. Representations of family structure were observed as follows: 43 (41.3%) single parent, 26 (25%) nuclear, 20 (19.2%) guardian, 6 (5.8%) extended, 4 (3.8%) other, 3 (2.9%) childless, and 2 (1.9%) reconstituted. In terms of the caretaker role, 31 (29.8%) of the depicted families included a married couple, followed by 25 (24%) single father, 20 (19.2%) single mother, 9 (8.7%) guardian female, 7 (6.7%) guardian male, 5 (4.8%) other, 4 (3.8%) guardian couples, and 3 (2.9%) married without children.
RQ2 examined how families are represented in terms of ethnicity. Only human characters were coded for ethnicity, which decreased the total number of families (n = 104) to 65 human families. Ethnicity was depicted as follows: 45 (69.2%) Caucasian, 5 (7.7%) Hispanic, 4 (6.2%) mixed race, 4 (6.2%) Asian, 2 (3.1%) Islander, 2 (3.1%) African American, 2 (3.1%) Native American, and 1 (1.5%) Arab. The top five films that diverged from a majority representation of Caucasian ethnic portrayal included Aladdin, Mulan, Brother Bear, Moana, and Coco.
3.2. Family Composition
RQ3 assessed the composition of families based on the total number of children and sibling portrayals. Sixty-nine families (66.3%) were portrayed with one child, with 20 families (19.2%) that depicted two children, 8 families (7.7%) with three children, 2 families (1.9%) with zero children, 3 families (2.9%) with four children, 1 family (1%) with six children, and 1 family (1%) with seven children. Regarding the sex of children, 52.2% of children were portrayed as male and 47.8% of children portrayed were female.
3.3. Family Function
RQ4 through RQ6 evaluated family function and relationship climates. RQ4 inquired if families illustrated supportive, unsupportive, or mixed support. Seventy-nine families (76.0%) were portrayed as supportive, with 14 families (13.5%) as unsupportive and eleven families (10.6%) as mixed support.
RQ5 investigated the relationship between the protagonist and his or her family. Eighty-two (78.8%) of the films portrayed a positive relationship between the protagonist and his/her family. Thirteen families (12.5%) portrayed a negative relationship, and nine (8.7%) of the films were coded as a mixed relationships.
RQ6 examined the overall family relationship climate. The majority of family portrayals, or 80 families (76.9%), were depicted as positive, with fifteen families (14.4%) as negative and 9 families (8.7%) as mixed climates.
3.4. Family Portrayals over Time
The final research question evaluated patterns and changes of the data over time. The data were organized into two decade periods and included the following: 1930–1949, 1950–1969, 1970–1989, 1990–2009, and 2010–2018. Frequency analysis was calculated by period to provide an overarching comparative framework (see Table 1). Noteworthy findings included variation from traditional family structures over time, with clear dominance in the representation of single parent family structures throughout. The representation of families with only one child also predominant in each time period. Moreover, all family structures were represented as Caucasian until the 1990s. Finally, Disney animated film families portrayed an overwhelming degree of family support, warmth, and general positivity, with each of these variables above 70% in each time period. Further evaluation of these data is provided in the discussion section.

4. Discussion
This investigation sought to provide greater understanding of the predominant messages children receive about the general representation, structure, and function of families within Disney animated films from 1937 to 2018. As younger audiences often watch these films repeatedly, it becomes imperative to understand the messages children encounter from this medium. Specifically, we assessed representations of family structure, ethnicity, family composition, family support, and the familial relationship climate. The final research question provided assessment of how each of these areas is represented over time through the organization of variables by every two decades.
Although our analysis specifically examines representation and not direct effects, we highlight several content patterns and possible implications that may be helpful for future effects research designs. First, regarding family structure, the data revealed single parents as the predominant structure (41.3%), followed by nuclear families (25%) and guardian families (19.2%). These results support previous scholarship contending that Disney often selects fictional storylines that integrate the absence of a parental figure as a driving plot element (Junn 1997). However, nuclear family portrayals within Disney animated films were less often depicted in comparison to other forms of children’s media. For instance, Callister et al. (2007) asserted that “the traditional, nuclear family clearly dominates the landscape of children’s programing” (p. 155).
Family structure representations within Disney animated films were also incongruent with US census data. Data that evaluated family structures of children under the age of 18 suggest that nuclear families are the most predominant family arrangement (69%), followed by single mother households (23%) (Porter 2016). Comparison of US census data to Disney animated film representations are close to polar opposites (Disney nuclear families = 25%/US census nuclear families = 69%; Disney single parent families = 41.3%/US census data with single parent families = 27.5%).
Implications related to incongruent representations of Disney animated families to real-world families are twofold: particularly for children who experience nontraditional family arrangements, diversity within family depictions may promote a broader perspective regarding the constitution of family and, accordingly, assist in promoting social norms that do not marginalize and/or present nontraditional structures as inferior. However, as Skill and Robinson (1994) asserted, an over-representation of nontraditional family structures may perpetuate ideals of “antifamily”—or the notion that unconventional family structures are normative and conventional structures are possibly unattainable. Interestingly, recent US census data documented a 19% decrease in nuclear families between the years of 1960–2016 (Porter). Future research should explore these two phenomena in greater detail. Specifically, understanding the viewing habits of various audiences (e.g., light versus heavy viewers of Disney animated films) relative to beliefs about family structures may provide greater insight into the influence of prevalent children’s media on social norms and behavior.
Another observation relates to an over-representation of single parents. Our results indicated that close to half (41.3%) of Disney animated films depicted a single parent family. Don Hahn, an executive producer for some of the most well-known Disney animated films (including Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King), provided commentary for this storyline selection:
I never talk about this, but I will. One reason is practical because the movies are 80 or 90 min long, and Disney films are about growing up. They’re about that day in your life when you have to accept responsibility. Simba ran away from home but had to come back. In shorthand, it’s much quicker to have characters grow up when you bump off their parents. Bambi’s mother gets killed, so he has to grow up. Belle only has a father, but he gets lost, so she has to step into that position. It’s a story shorthand. (Radloff 2014).
Hahn refers to the use of single parent family structures as a “story shorthand.” Yet, an over-representation of single parents within children’s media holds several implications. For one, Signorielli and Morgan (2001) argued that “single parents, contrary to what we see on television, do not live comfortably; most are young, single mothers, often women of color, who do not have the luxury of high paying jobs or a comfortable lifestyle complete with live-in help” (p. 347). Signorielli and Morgan further asserted that positive depictions of single parents can influence societal perceptions, and, in turn, perpetuate policies that provide insufficient resources offered to single-parent families. Other scholars argue that positive representations may offer hope to negative single-parent stereotypes (Pistole and Marson 2005). To illustrate, if a child consumes messaging that depicts film characters from single-parent homes overcoming difficulties and achieving their goals, such messaging may be productive in building children’s resiliency.
Depicting young protagonists who evolve and mature within a film may also provide a rationale for our findings of a predominance of single child families. Although Disney pulls many of their storylines from traditional fairytales, the choice to portray single child families further supports a “coming of age” character journey. “Coming of age” protagonist portrayals are useful in exposing children to exemplars of resiliency, courage, and pro-social behaviors with unfamiliar others. Examples of these qualities can be seen in films such as Mulan, Tangled, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. Nonetheless, such depictions often remove characters from one of their most valuable support systems—the family. As Davis (2006) observed, 
When the mother is alive and present, she is as good a mother as she possibly can be. However, she is powerless, for whatever reason, to really help her child, thus forcing the child to save him- or herself. Most often, however, she is not only dead, she is never even mentioned. Fathers are a little luckier in Disney. They are rarely killed [ ... ] Granted, where there are fathers, they are often just as incapable of protecting their offspring as are the mothers [ . . . ]. (pp. 103–104)
The removal of key family members may lessen the perception that families are relevant to children and their abilities to overcome obstacles. In particular, when parents are removed from storylines, parent-child interactions that illustrate parental protection, support, and safety become nonexistent. Future research should more deeply explore implications to storylines in which traditional family structures are removed or absent.
Related to only-child families are the lack of sibling portrayals. In many instances, Disney animated films do not use siblings as primary characters but rather as introductions to the protagonist. For instance, in the film Zootopia, the rabbit protagonist Judy Hopps is shown with hundreds of siblings, even though these siblings play a minimal role in Judy’s adventure of becoming a police officer. Such portrayals de-emphasize the role of siblings and may create friction within a familial setting. Nevertheless, we observed that films that do overtly portray sibling interactions usually involve siblings journeying together. Instances of these types of portrayals include Peter Pan and The Incredibles. Although these depictions are more of a rarity, such illustrations may inspire positive sibling interactions as siblings work together to achieve a common objective.
A third insight regards ethnic representation. Disney animated films’ first depiction of a non-Caucasian family structure was Aladdin in 1992, followed by Pocahontas in 1995 and Mulan in 1998. Since the 1990s, diversity in ethnic family portrayals has comparatively increased. Although awareness of ethnic diversity and inclusion of varying cultures may be on the rise for Disney creations, it is important to address possible psychosocial implications for the Disney animated genre as a whole. First, some Disney animated films—particularly those created prior to 1990—may perpetuate ethnocentrism through depictions of centrally Caucasian family structures. In other genres of children’s media, older content may not be considered as relevant or influential as compared to recent content. Yet, as older Disney animated films are often regarded as family classics in which generations of children, parents, and grandchild continue to watch these films, the possible influence of older Disney animated films should not be disregarded.
Ignorance about strong ethnic predominance may also perpetuate cultivated beliefs that view a singular race as superior, which belies the complexity of modern family structures. Awareness of the limited racial representation in some Disney animated films may be helpful for parents, educators, and practitioners seeking to promote greater respect and acceptance of ethnic diversity. Such an awareness can lead to greater discussions about ethnicity among parents and children. As Towbin et al. (2004) stated, “[ ... ] Disney movies can serve as an example of society in microcosm: there are embedded messages of racism in many of the movies. Learning to find them and bringing the messages into the open can be educational and empowering for children” (p. 41).
Additionally, although representations of various family ethnicities emerged in the 1990s, we further noted minimal interaction of families with differing ethnic backgrounds. Such observations echo one of the four central themes established by Tanner et al. (2003): “Families are diverse, but the diversity is often simplified” (p. 355). For instance, the film Moana (2016) illustrated several Polynesian families; however, these families do not engage with families of other ethnicities. A similar pattern holds true in other films, including Aladdin, Mulan, The Emperor’s New Groove, and Coco.
One explanation for minimal cross-racial interactions involves the contextually bound nature of the types of stories Disney animated films portray. For example, the film Mulan centers on a geographically defined Asian culture and remains consistent with this depiction throughout the film. Interestingly, however, ethnic representations have somewhat shifted in more recent Disney live action films. For instance, the recent releases of the live action films Cinderella in 2015 and Beauty and the Beast in 2017 depict a much more racially diverse cast, presenting a stark contrast to the films’ earlier animated counterparts. Indeed, some critics suggest that Disney has entered into an “inclusive third golden age” beginning with the film The Princess and the Frog—with Disney creatives going to great lengths to “avoid gross stereotyping” (Harris 2016). Such transitions may encourage storylines that illustrate characters of various racial backgrounds, thus promoting greater diversity in animated depictions. Again, educators and parents may use these insights to better discern and discuss with children the messages Disney animated films share about ethnicity and interacting with diverse groups of individuals.
The final insight relates to family function within Disney animated films. Douglas (2003) observed divergent findings in the literature, suggesting that some media portrayals of the family highlight loving, warm, and affectionate depictions, whereas others illustrate families that are uninvolved, cold, and distant. Overall, the present census analysis overwhelming supported the first supposition: Disney animated films provide example after example of family support, warm familial relational climates, and overall general positivity. This finding parallels the theme identified by Tanner et al. (2003) in their analysis of 26 Disney films, in which they commented that “family relationships are a strong priority” (p. 355). Positive depictions of family function are of great interest, particularly as cultivation analysis and social learning theory posit that children may learn from and imitate interactions they view in media. Hence, the value of children’s media that illustrate instances of family members working through conflicts and showing love and support for one another is noteworthy.

Preface to ”The Psychosocial Implications of Disney Movies”
With its widespread and sustained influence, the Walt Disney Company has achieved iconic status. Its products are a mainstay of popular culture, salient in the everyday lives of people in many countries around the globe. In fact, MDPI data documenting the countries in which readers have accessed the articles in this volume attest to the cross-cultural interest in the Disney megabrand (see these articles below, mentioned parenthetically by author name). The power of the Disney brand has heightened the need for academics to question whether Disney films and music function as a tool of the Western elite that shapes the views of those less empowered (Anjirbag; Armstrong; Hodge). Given its global reach, how the Walt Disney Company handles the role of race, gender, and sexuality in social structural inequality merits serious reflection according to a number of the articles in this volume (Harris; Hine, Ivanovic, and England; Perea; Uppal). On the other hand, some academics argue that Disney productions can help individuals cope with difficult situations or embrace progressive thinking (Brydon; Graham, Yuhas, and Roman; Hine, England, Lopreore, Horgan, and Hartwell; Zurcher, Webb, and Robinson). The different approaches to the assessment of Disney films as cultural artifacts also vary according to the theoretical perspectives guiding the interpretation of both overt and latent symbolic meaning in the movies (Dundes, Streiff Buitelaar, and Streiff; Koushik and Reed; Macaluso; Primo). Regardless of discrepant views about the significance of Disney fare, its films simultaneously mirror societal trends and reshape them.
Yet, audience buy-in also governs this interplay.
For example, in late summer 2018, a pre-release image from Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 depicted Disney “princesses” assembled in a group, showcasing their new, updated look. Although most were still recognizable, Princess Tiana, Disney’s only Black princess, was not. Her new biracial appearance provoked an outcry, prompting Disney to revise the animation to make Princess Tiana more closely resemble her original appearance in the Princess and the Frog (2009). Disney’s decision to incur the extra expense necessary to make the changes indicates the power of public reactions in the production of media fare. The increasingly dynamic creation of entertainment media has both expanded the opportunity for audience input and galvanized academics from a variety of disciplines. The 15 studies of Disney films comprising this volume were written by authors from a number of different fields, including the following: education, schooling, and society; sociology; psychology; communications; music; musical theater; business communication; children’s literature; human development and family studies; and geography, media, and communication. The multidisciplinary perspectives presented in this volume are based on a range of methodologies, such as content analysis, interview data, census data tallies, children’s drawings, and Reddit data. The Collection of 15 Articles in the Special Issue In the first article in this volume, Zurcher et al. use a census analysis of 85 Disney animated films from 1937–2018 to examine the portrayal of family dynamics. The authors studied this topic in light of children’s ability to gain insight into their own conflicts by bonding with fictional characters (through so-called parasocial relationships). The authors laud the opportunity for children in single-parent families, disproportionately represented in Disney movies, to model the resiliency of characters facing ix familial challenges they themselves experience.
The second article in the volume also discusses how Disney films can model healthy responses to challenging life circumstances and events. In an extension of previous work on the same topic, Graham et al. assess death depictions in Disney films by comparing concepts of death in 23 death scenes from 10 Disney animated films from 1937 to 2003 with 10 death scenes from eight full-length Disney and Pixar animated films from 2003 to 2016. The authors find that increasingly realistic portrayals of death exemplify ways to cope and express emotions when individuals face the demise of a loved one. In particular, characters that turned to family or friends when they were upset modeled the importance of support systems in building connections that facilitate healthy grieving. In the next article, Perea also explores connections to characters in Disney films, including how they may be relatable to viewers who experience outsider status. Perea identifies the representation of otherness as it relates to queer identity by elucidating both overt and latent markers in the title characters of Dumbo and Lilo & Stitch. For example, to avoid eliciting consternation in others, Stitch hides his extra limbs and tentacles, while Dumbo pins his ears to disguise nonconformity.
Perea illustrates the range of interpreted meanings embedded within Disney characters, noting that violations of normative codes can occur even within the very industry that perpetuates them. Disney’s involvement in distributing stories that resonate with marginalized groups was also evidenced by its hit, Black Panther (produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures). Harris analyzes the film along with Disney’s The Queen of Katwe, a live-action film based on the true story of a girl from the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, who becomes a chess champion. Harris applauds Disney for breaking new ground in these portrayals of “Africana royalty” that rise above the legacy of colonialization, capitalism, and globalization. Harris nevertheless asserts that to dismantle the matrix of domination, depictions of non-dominant groups cannot be mere “cinematic bumps in the road”.
This matrix of domination paradigm that encompasses the role of race, class, and gender in oppression also applies to the article by Uppal. Uppal used interview data and drawings to study girls in India and Fiji after they watched clips of Jasmine (from Disney’s Aladdin), Mulan, and Pocahontas (that is, nonwhite Disney princess characters). Compared with girls from Sweden, those in India and Fiji believed they lacked the qualities to be a princess, especially white skin color. Uppal’s research connects widespread Disney princess imagery with a “white” beauty standard, especially in countries with less media exposure to ethnically similar characters. In the next article, Hine et al. (2018a) also report entrenched notions of traits associated with princesses.
Their study of 131 eight- and nine-year-old children in the United Kingdom documents how children attributed feminine and masculine characteristics to “princesses” both before and after watching an older princess movie (Sleeping Beauty, 1959) and a newer Disney princess movie (Moana, 2016). While the children recognized that Moana had a more androgynous gender profile than that of Aurora of Sleeping Beauty, nearly half of them did not identify Moana as a princess at all. The authors argue that although the traditional conceptualization of princesses appears resistant to change, increasing examples of characters that depart from gender stereotypes may alter these views. The subsequent paper by Anjirbag also analyzes Moana.
In her article, Anjirbag suggests that the presentation of Moana is neither culturally authentic nor a significant improvement over Mulan. Anjirbag explores potential barriers between the characters and viewers, distance communicated through stereotypical visual and musical aesthetics.
These flat representations of diversity not only depart from authentic portrayals of these cultures, but also contribute to colonial erasure that x reinforces current hegemonic power structures. The next paper offers a detailed critique of the music in Moana. In this paper, Armstrong argues that the songs in Moana reflect imperialism and the appropriation of Polynesian musical traits. She notes that while audiences do hear the influence of cultural insider and Polynesian composer Opetaia Foa’i, who was involved in the film, those sounds are framed or accompanied by those used in the music of American Broadway and film. Armstrong raises concerns about Disney’s self-appointment as an authority in its presentation of a culture likely to be associated with its “Disneyfied” version. Hodge finds similar ethnocentrism in EPCOT’s 13-minute nighttime show “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth”, which is designed to transport audiences to other “worlds” using culturally thematic music. Hodge explains that the show presents Euro-American music as the end point of a musical evolutionary process—a demonstration of musical supremacy of sorts.
He argues that “IllumiNations” showcases traditional Western musical sounds that American consumers expect while reinforcing their superiority. Modernized Disney franchises such as Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast also express traditional hierarchies as consumer friendly. In the next article in the volume, Koushik and Reed argue that despite placing more females in prominent roles in these films, men are still portrayed as wiser, less emotional, and more experienced. The authors attribute these surface-level post-feminist reboots to Disney’s financial goals: commodity feminism that allows women to identify with their femininity and feel empowered by consumerism. They argue that ultimately, the films operate within an established capitalist system that protects the dominant patriarchy.
The role of gender stereotypes in creating characters that are marketable commodities also relates to Disney’s Hercules. In the next article, Primo explores this topic in assessing whether the title character’s lack of resonance is related to Disney’s modification of traditional masculinity in the film. Primo examines Hercules’ non-cohesive male identity, including the female-associated trait of selflessness. She argues that the title character’s deviation from alpha male traits did not appear to have encouraged subsequent portrayals of more progressive masculinity. Despite concerns about the lack of progress in gender equality in Disney films, Hine et al. (2018b) argue that modern Disney princesses have become more androgynous in their behavioral profiles and are increasingly involved in handling dangerous situations, while male leads demonstrate an increasing number of feminine traits. In addition, they report that the sexes are equal in the number of rescue behaviors depicted. The authors argue that this trend could promote healthier and more inclusive attitudes consistent with increasing gender role flexibility. Brydon shares with Hine et al. (2018b) a certain amount of optimism about increasing gender role equity. In her analysis of the Incredibles 2, Brydon argues that a different model of masculinity exists within the empowered and collaborative parenting shown in the film. She applauds role fluidity especially as it is embraced and engaged in by a stereotypically gendered man, Mr. Incredible.
His wife, Mrs. Incredible, is able to bridge the gap between third-wave and matricentric feminists in finding strength in oneself versus strength in the village; Mrs. Incredible achieves both, modeling gender role flexibility. Macaluso offers a view of the Incredibles 2 that differs from that of Brydon, as he argues that the humorous role reversal of Mr. and Mrs. Incredible constitutes a postfeminist spin on the gains of women. In ridiculing men, women’s progress occurs at the expense of males, inciting backlash that Macaluso documents with online Reddit data that capture viewers’ reactions to the film. Macaluso xi calls for more egalitarian progress of spouses as partners advancing together. According to Dundes, Streiff Buitelaar, and Streiff, progress towards gender equality is complicated by discomfort with powerful women as illustrated by Elsa, a powerful queen in Frozen. Elsa embraces the storm power of Zeus over romance—a decision facilitated by her ability to independently produce two snowman sons, Olaf and Marshmallow.
The fact that these two characters are gender nonconforming reflects fears surrounding the maelstrom of societal changes, including expanding fertility options and the re-conceptualization of gender identity. Despite the outward progressiveness of the plot, the normalcy of male dominance drives the resolution of the story, in which Elsa learns to wield power in a non-threatening manner. In Gratitude The Special Issue guest editor wishes to express her appreciation for the contributions by all of the authors whose articles comprise this volume. She also is grateful to the editors of Social Sciences, especially Dragana Oborina, as well as the many anonymous reviewers whose time and expertise made this volume possible. The cover art by Hsun-yuan Hsu (, created specifically for this volume, is also greatly appreciated.

What does Rupert Murdoch own? 

Mr Murdoch's portfolio of Australian news media brands stretches from print, radio and pay television to online news, including:

These investments fall under the banner of News Corp Australia, whose ultimate owner is the US-based News Corporation, of which Mr Murdoch is executive chairman.

The Murdoch Family Trust controls around 40 per cent of the parent company's voting shares (and a smaller proportion of the total shares on issue).

Former prime minister Kevin Rudd's petition to establish a royal commission into media diversity in Australia attracted more than half a million signatures and took aim at Rupert Murdoch, whose media empire Mr Rudd labelled a "cancer on democracy".

Another ex-prime minister Malcolm Turnbull also weighed in, branding it "an absolute threat to our democracy" and "the most powerful political actor in Australia".

Mr Rudd's petition, with support from Mr Turnbull, led to a Senate inquiry into Australia's news media and Mr Murdoch's role in it.

So, just what is his reach?

In this fact file, RMIT ABC Fact Check takes a look at the breadth and popularity of Mr Murdoch's Australian media outlets, relative to their competitors.

Given the focus by Mr Rudd and Mr Turnbull on Australian democracy, this analysis is limited to the coverage of news and current affairs in Australia.

Murdoch's reach: the big picture

For the purpose of this fact file, "reach" refers to the number of unique individuals who, for example, visited a website, watched a television channel or read a newspaper during a given period.

Fact Check sourced viewer and readership data for print, digital (including social media), television and radio from various sources, including reputable survey organisations Roy Morgan and Nielsen.

The available data slices up and measures different parts of the media landscape, so assessing the combined audience share of Mr Murdoch's Australian news outlets is not straightforward.

So what can we say?

Certainly, News Corp's newspapers dominate the national market for physical newspapers.

At the last count, in 2016, its share of circulation among national and capital city dailies was 65 per cent, and likely similar for regional papers.

More recent data for December 2020 shows that print papers owned by News Corp commanded more than twice the total audience of those owned by Nine Entertainment

But that says nothing of the internet, where far more people get their news.

Here, Nine's biggest traditional mastheads are individually more popular than those of News Corp.

Measured by monthly readers, the combined reach of News Corp's hardcopy and digital newspapers is only around 7 per cent larger than Nine's, despite owning twice the number of titles.

And among news websites more broadly, News Corp is not the only big fish.

Its website ranks second to the ABC for monthly visitors, and its traditional newspaper brands are outperformed by digital-only offerings such as and Daily Mail online.

In December 2020, News Corp's news websites collectively reached 1.2 million fewer readers than those owned by Nine Entertainment.

There is little to suggest that News Corp dominates when it comes to broadcast news audiences.

Its radio investments are comparatively small compared to those in print, for example, in a market where ownership is relatively more diverse.

News Corp's sole television news outlet, Sky News Australia, attracts a significantly smaller audience than ABC News, the nation's only other 24-hour news channel. And, according to one survey, the number of people who got their news from Sky was roughly a third that of either Channel Seven or Channel Nine.

On social media, however, Sky has an outsized audience.

In the second half of 2020, its Facebook posts were shared more often than any of the 65 accounts analysed by Fact Check, while placed third, behind Daily Mail.

On YouTube, its subscriber base far exceeds that of Channel 7 and Channel 9 and by March 2021 had surpassed ABC News, while its videos receive millions more views per month.

Importantly, it is likely that a significant chunk of Sky's YouTube traffic comes from overseas, given reports that nearly a third of its website traffic comes from outside Australia.

Below, Fact Check has collated and presented the data summarised above, along with necessary caveats for interpreting it.

Is all reach equal?

Mr Rudd's campaign took particular issue with Mr Murdoch's print newspapers.

But how important are they?

Various surveys shed light on this question by asking where Australians get their news. Often the results add to more than 100 per cent as participants can select multiple sources.

In 2019,  the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), which regulates commercial broadcasting,  found just 11 per cent of people read hardcopy newspapers daily. Meanwhile, more than half got their daily news from television (52 per cent) or online news and social media (51 per cent).

The same survey found 36 per cent of people never read newspapers at all.

In 2020, the University of Canberra's News & Media Research Centre reported that just 25 per cent of news consumers got their news from a newspaper.

More than twice as many got their news from either online sources (52 per cent) or social media (53 per cent). Asked about their one "main" source of news, just 6 per cent of people chose print.

Importantly, though, online sources include the websites and apps of traditional newspapers.

Roy Morgan also asked Australians about their multiple "main" sources of news in 2020.

It found digital sources overall, including social media, were now more popular (61 per cent) than television (60 per cent), radio (42 per cent) or print newspapers (25 cent).

However, it's worth highlighting the company's 2018 research that said most digital-platform users "considered online news to be a good adjunct, rather than replacement for 'offline' news".

It found that the most popular online sources — particularly for news about local affairs, crime, and politics — were the websites and apps of traditional newspapers and broadcasters.

The limits of reach

One thing to consider when measuring reach is that people who consume news from multiple sources will often be counted twice, even in the same dataset.

Most datasets also do not specify whether audiences are accessing news, entertainment or other content, which is often published side by side.

And when it comes to social media, the publicly available data does not show whether users are located overseas. This is particularly relevant given Mr Rudd's focus on Australian democracy.

Finally, there is the issue, beyond the scope of this fact file, of how reach within a particular geography might translate to political power at the local or national level.

Mr Rudd has argued that News Corp papers dominate in Queensland, a state that has tipped the balance to the Coalition in multiple federal elections.

News Corp Australasia executive chairman Michael Miller told the inquiry this overstated the company's power, noting that Labor won Queensland's last state election, despite News Corp's Courier Mail pushing for a change of government.

Diversity and dominance

Mr Rudd highlighted the need to "maximise media diversity ownership".

Ownership has been the traditional measure for media diversity in Australia, but it is not the only one. Diversity can, for example, be assessed as a share of audience or industry revenue.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission argued in its 2019 Digital Platforms Inquiry report that factors other than ownership were also important, and interpreted "choice" for news consumers in terms of "what is available in the market; what is distributed or made accessible to consumers; and what is consumed".

In a 2020 issues paper, ACMA concluded that ownership was "no longer a suitable standalone metric of diversity".

Mr Rudd says the dominance of News Corp provides a lack of balance in Australian media.(AAP: Mick Tsikas)

"[In] a news environment defined by an abundance of information and potential news sources," it said, "there is a divergent view that the influence of outlets should not be defined purely by an examination of what is available and who owns them, but also by what audiences are actually consuming".

Quoted in the same report, the UK's communication regulator argued that to prevent any media owner from gaining too much influence, it was important to ensure nobody amassed "a share of consumption that is so high that there is a risk that people are exposed to a narrow set of viewpoints".

With that in mind, Fact Check has paid particular attention to the number of Australians who get their news from News Corp, relative to other sources.

Given the concern of Mr Rudd and Mr Turnbull about News Corp's impact on Australian democracy, as opposed to its commercial success, this analysis has also focused on audiences rather than revenue.

The 'market' for news

Audience share depends on which sources are being compared, and there are many ways to define the field.

A narrowly defined field might include only television stations or only hardcopy newspapers, for example.

More broadly, it could include all producers of a particular news medium, such as text, audio or video.

And then there is arguably one big "news" market where all media formats, including online and offline sources, compete for attention.

Yet another approach is to consider geography, and assess competition in terms of local, regional, national and international news.

These definitions are a critical point on which Mr Rudd and News Corp differ, with Mr Miller telling the Senate inquiry that the Australian media "has never been more diverse".

Indeed, the ACCC report found the internet had increased "the plurality of journalism available online" and this had "reduc[ed] the impact of the high concentration in the traditional print (now print/online) sector".

"Overall, the available evidence suggests that the entrance of digital natives has affected the sources of news that consumers access online," the report said.

Mr Rudd, however, says this matters little if Mr Murdoch dominates in print.

At the inquiry, he claimed that each story published online or broadcast over the airwaves "finds its point of origin in a print story, often a Murdoch print story".

Mr Turnbull also told the inquiry he thought that while print set the agenda less than it once did, this point was "largely correct".

However, he noted, "the influence of this very political media organisation is vastly greater on the Coalition than it is on the community at large".

In one submission, Sydney University Emeritus Professor Rodney Tiffen argued that News Corp's power arose from the combined effect of its outlets, including those in television and radio, functioning as an "echo chamber" of opinions and themes. He also suggested this power had its "most direct effect" over politicians.

However, assessing the combined reach of these sources is not straightforward, as the available data typically offers only partial glimpses of the media landscape — generally adopting different measures for print, broadcast and digital media, and often treating online and offline audiences separately.

The ACMA paper found the existing data was limited to "individual measures of consumption for each platform", which not only varied in reliability but were also produced using different methods. This meant the data "cannot be appropriately combined to provide a comprehensive and accurate view of news consumption across all platforms".

The paper recommended developing "a large, bespoke, nationally representative consumer survey" to allow for a direct comparison of the popularity of news outlets across print, radio, TV and online.

"To our knowledge, this information is not currently available in Australia," it said.


Print newspapers

After deciding to turn many of its local papers into digital-only publications or cut them entirely, News Corp was publishing fewer than 20 hardcopy newspapers in early 2021 (and roughly 85 digital-only titles).

The company owns seven of Australia's 12 national or capital city dailies (58 per cent), a figure which, for simplicity's sake, excludes weekend papers.

In four capitals — Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin and Hobart — News Corp's papers face no local print rival.

Outside the capital cities, daily publications provide competition in some regional cities.

Local and community print newspapers still operate throughout the regions, although they tend to be published weekly.

However, the ACCC reported that 21 local government areas had no local print or digital newspaper coverage at all in 2017-18.

But President of Country Press Australia Bruce Ellen told Fact Check via email that membership of his organisation, which represents regional and local papers across Australia, had increased over the year to April 2021.

And the managing director of regional publisher Star News Group, Paul Thomas, said News Corp’s exit from the regional print market had seen independent publishers fill the space, with many “producing more local and relevant content than News Corp were previously”.

In Queensland, the focus of Mr Rudd’s campaign, the Public Interest Journalism Initiative's newsroom mapping project identified 16 new local papers.

When it comes to daily papers in the state, no titles other than News Corp’s appear in the membership list of the Australian Press Council, which the council says accounts for 95 per cent of print circulation. The newsroom mapping project identified a new print title in Queensland that claims to be "Australia's smallest daily newspaper".

So, how dominant are News Corp newspapers?

In 2016, a major international study found that News Corp papers accounted for 65 per cent of circulation among ten of the major dailies (excluding NT and Tasmania).

Across all major and regional dailies the picture would have likely been similar, with the Finkelstein review into media regulation reporting that News Corp accounted for 58 per cent of the nation's daily newspaper circulation in 2011. A further five per cent went to APN News & Media, which News Corp acquired in late 2016.

What the readership data says

Roy Morgan and emma, a Nielsen-Ipsos joint venture, both survey Australians to ask what they are reading.

While they adopt different methodologies and cover only a selection of titles, each estimates how many people, on average, read a particular print publication — a measure referred to as "average issue readership".

According to figures for the year to December 2020, News Corp's seven major papers were read 2.0 million to 2.9 million times on any given weekday, depending on the dataset used.

(Its five regional dailies add an extra 150,000 to 290,000 readers per weekday issue.)

Nine Entertainment's combined print-only readership was a much smaller 0.8 million to 1.2 million.

Importantly, people who read multiple papers will be counted more than once in these totals.

Roy Morgan supplied Fact Check with 2020 data for the "net readership" of each company across the 12 capital city and national dailies.

In this data, readers are counted only once against each company — even if they read multiple papers from the same company, or multiple issues.

It shows that News Corp reached more than twice as many people each week than Nine Entertainment did through its print newspapers, and around six times more than Seven West.

Print goes digital

Roy Morgan and emma also estimate the combined print/digital audiences of selected print newspapers.

The data provides a fuller picture of the audiences of traditional mastheads, though it does not include data for digital-only titles such as Nine's The Brisbane Times.

Roy Morgan has supplied Fact Check with totals covering the 12 major dailies and their weekend editions for the year to December 2020, split according to newspaper owner.

This data counts people who read multiple newspapers owned by the same company only once during each four-week period.

It shows that News Corp's seven titles attracted a monthly combined print/digital audience of 13 million people. That compares with 12.1 million across Nine Entertainment's three mastheads.

Notably, News Corp's audience will be slightly understated as the figures do not include digital audiences for NT News.

The published data for December 2020 shows that, thanks to their significant online audiences, the most popular individual mastheads were Nine's Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

Online news

Readers have a still greater range of choices when it comes to online news.

The Canberra University survey suggests News Corp owned five of the 10 most popular Australian digital news brands in 2020, based on the number of people who accessed news sources over a one-week period.

Those brands include, which ranked equal first with ABC News and was accessed by 23 per cent of Australian news consumers surveyed.

Behind News Corp and the ABC came the websites of Nine Entertainment's and Seven West's television networks.

Guardian Australia was the sole "digital native" to make the top ten other than News Corp and ABC brands, though the data does not include "offline" audiences for other television or newspaper brands.

It's also worth noting that the survey found several of News Corp's most popular brands (The Daily TelegraphHerald Sun and Sky News Australia) were among the least trusted sources for news.

Separately, audience analytics company Nielsen collects data on the number of Australians who access domestic news websites and apps each month.

It supplied Fact Check with figures showing the total "unduplicated unique audience" for the various news websites owned by each of the four big players.

This means people who visit multiple websites owned by the same company, or visit them multiple times, will only be counted once.

The data shows News Corp websites collectively reached 12.1 million individual people in December 2020, which was lower than Nine Entertainment's 13.3 million people.

Nielsen also publishes monthly audience data for these companies' individual news websites.

Its December 2020 data shows that was News Corp's most popular site, which reached a little over 10 million people.

Coming in behind ABC News (11.4 million) and (10.7 million), this was one of only two News Corp sites to make the top 10.

For completeness, Fact Check has also analysed the published data as averages over the six months to January 2021 inclusive.

This put slightly higher, in second place, while the Herald Sun dropped out of the top ten.



Sky News Australia broadcasts multiple channels through the subscription television service Foxtel, which is also majority owned by News Corp.

At the time of publishing, its main news channel was available in regional areas through the WIN Network. However, there is speculation the agreement between Sky and WIN will not be renewed when it expires in August 2021, after the regional network signed a new deal to broadcast content from Nine Entertainment.

Sky News' offerings represent Australia's only 24-hour news channels outside ABC News, though the station also competes with news-producing free-to-air stations.

The Canberra University survey results show that Australians in 2020 were far more likely to get their news from free-to-air broadcasters such as ABC, Channel 7 or Channel 9 than from Sky.

So, how many viewers does Sky News Australia reach?

The ACMA issues paper explains that ratings data has to-date been "primarily platform specific" but that total ratings across online and broadcast video will soon be available from Virtual Australia (VOZ), a new partnership between Nielsen and the ratings agencies OzTAM and Regional TAM.

According to its website, VOZ began producing test data in 2020 which is not yet publicly available.

In the meantime, Fact Check has relied on cumulative 5-minute audience data (consolidated 28, weeks 1-52, 2020) from OzTAM (5 City Metro) and Regional TAM (Combined Aggregate Markets).

This measures the number of unique viewers who watched at least five consecutive minutes of a given channel each week. Figures for separate channels cannot be combined to produce an overall figure.

The data shows that Sky News Live was watched by an average of 577,000 viewers per week in 2020, among all households in five capital cities.

Sky News Extra reached 146,000 metro weekly viewers.

In regional areas, Sky News on WIN reached an average of 480,000 viewers per week.

To put all this data in context, the ABC News channel reached an average of 3.9 million Australians per week (all households), including 1.1 million regional viewers and 2.8 million metro viewers.

Nationally, Sky News Live reached an average of 791,000 viewers per week, in households with pay TV.

This figure (for pay TV households) cannot be compared directly to ABC News's national audience (all households), but it suggests Mr Murdoch's influence over the airwaves is far smaller than its most direct competitor.


Social media

News Corp brands are increasing their reach on social media as more Australians are using these platforms for news.

Fact Check has analysed audience data for media accounts on what Canberra University found were the two most popular platforms: Facebook (used by 39 per cent of news consumers ) and YouTube (21 per cent).

Apps Triller, TikTok, YouTube, ABC News, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook.

This analysis considers direct reach, measured by account followers or subscribers, but also YouTube video views and Facebook shares.

Axel Bruns, a Queensland University of Technology professor of digital media research, told Fact Check that indirect reach such as shares "might be as or more significant" than direct reach, as "research shows that users pay more attention to the content shared by their friends".

Importantly, the data analysed does not show whether audiences were in Australia or overseas.


What's happening on Facebook?

Fact Check has analysed 65 Australian media accounts using data from CrowdTangle, a public insights tool owned and operated by Facebook.

The data covers the period before Facebook's temporary ban on Australian news content.

The results show that on this platform three official News Corp accounts had amassed more than one million followers by January 2021.

Together, nine of its accounts had accrued roughly 7.5 million followers. The most popular among them was, with 1.9 million.

Passing the million mark is a notable but by no means unique achievement, with Daily Mail Australia commanding nearly five million followers, and ABC News roughly 4.3 million.

Illustrating the appeal of video content on social media, the bulk of accounts with more than 1 million followers belonged to television networks, especially those of Seven West and Nine Entertainment.

Fact Check has also considered Facebook shares over the six months to January 2021.

In total, the data shows, posts by official News Corp accounts were shared more than 4.4 million times during this period.

Topping the list was Sky News Australia, whose posts were shared 2.3 million times. was also near the top, with 1.5 million shares over the same period.

The majority of accounts with more than 100,000 shares over the previous half year were ABC and Seven West accounts with a local news focus.

What's happening on YouTube?

Fact Check has limited its analysis of Australian YouTube accounts to major digital-only and television news producers, due to the platform's focus on video.

Here, ABC News and Sky News Australia dominate.

Data from the analytics site Social Blade shows that Sky News Australia's YouTube channel had more than a million subscribers at the start of 2021, having doubled its following in just six months.

Its subscriber base began to pull ahead of Channel 7 and Channel 9 from mid-2020, and by March 2021 Sky had overtaken ABC News.

Sky News Australia has also seen a dizzying rise in the number of views received by its videos, a fact first revealed by Business Insider.

The channel recorded 762 million views in March 2021 alone — or 257 million more than ABC News.

It's worth reiterating that the data does not show whether it is Australians watching, and therefore whether this has any bearing on Australian democracy.

However, News Corp has likely benefitted from YouTube's decision to boost content from mainstream news channels in a bid to combat misinformation.

QUT Professor Jean Burgess told Fact Check that the policy "means that simply by virtue of owning a large number of media outlets, it is possible that Murdoch outlets will have an outsized influence on an Australian consumer's access to media on controversial topics via YouTube".


When it comes to radio, Mr Murdoch is a minority company shareholder in a market where ownership is somewhat more diverse than in print.

News Corp owns a roughly 15 per cent stake in HT&E, whose subsidiary Australian Radio Network operates several networks, including KIIS, Pure Gold and The Edge.

Separately, Mr Murdoch's eldest son Lachlan Murdoch owns Nova Entertainment, whose operations include the Nova, smoothfm, FIVEaa and Star FM networks.

In addition, Australian Radio Network and Nova have a 50-50 joint venture which owns one station in Brisbane and one in Perth.

Fact Check has analysed data from the Australian Media and Communications Authority's media control database, which covers all commercial radio stations that broadcast over radio spectrum.

After accounting for the two joint venture stations, this shows that HT&E's Australian Radio Network (ARN) owned roughly 14 per cent of the commercial and ABC stations operating across five capital cities.

Lachlan Murdoch's Nova Entertainment accounted for a further 12 per cent.

But Southern Cross Austereo had the largest footprint among the commercial operators, with 15 per cent of stations.

The ABC, meanwhile, operated 38 per cent, broadcasting local radio, Radio National, NewsRadio, Classic FM and triple j in each city.

Market research company GfK supplied Fact Check with audience data from its recent Radio Alive metropolitan surveys in the same five cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Fact Check has examined its results for cumulative listeners, or the number of different listeners reached by each station.

The data shows that ARN (owned by HT&E) stations attracted some of the nation's largest audiences in 2020.

Among its wholly-owned stations, ARN's top performer in each city reached between 22 per cent and 29 per cent of people aged 10+, which equated to more than 1 million unique listeners in both Melbourne and Sydney.

ARN's stations also cracked the top three for cumulative reach in four of the five cities, although the same could be said of its rival Southern Cross Austereo. 

ARN stations topped the rankings in Adelaide and Melbourne, while Nova took out first place in Sydney and Brisbane and the Nova-ARN joint venture ranked first in Perth.

But it's important to note that the subject of Mr Rudd's petition was news media, and the data does not specifically show whether people were listening to news.

Radio has also moved to digital broadcasting, which opens up the space for more news outlets to compete.

However, the GfK data shows digital audiences remain relatively small, with all but seven of the stations surveyed attracting a commercial audience share of less than 2 per cent.

    Independent Newspapers 

    This article is about a New Zealand company. Fo the Irish company formerly of the same name, see Independent News & Media.

    Independent Newspapers Limited (INL) was a newspaper publisher in New Zealand. Started as the Wellington Publishing Company in 1906 to publish The Dominion, it began taking over other newspapers in the 1970s and was renamed Independent Newspapers in 1972. It accumulated over 80 publications before selling them all to Fairfax in 2003. INL then merged into Sky Network Television in 2005. INL was part owned by News Limited since early in 1964 when Rupert Murdoch made his first overseas newspaper investment – a 29.57 percent stake in the Wellington Publishing Company. The News Limited holding in INL fluctuated over the years and was just over 49 percent in 1997.

    The company sprang out of the Wellington Publishing Company Limited that had been founded in 1906 to publish Wellington's morning daily, The Dominion. In 1970 Wellington Publishing Company made a successful takeover bid for Truth (NZ) Ltd and the following year acquired Independent Publishers Ltd, owner of the Waikato Times. In 1972 it took over Blundell Bros Limited, publisher of Wellington's Evening Post which had started in 1865.

    Later in 1972 the company changed its name to Independent Newspapers Limited. Around this time INL Print Limited (later Inprint Ltd) was formed to combine the printing and publishing operations of the commercial printing companies which operated prior to the various mergers.

    Some of the oldest newspapers in New Zealand joined the INL stable in the next two decades. In 1980 it took over The Manawatu Standard Limited, publisher of the Evening Standard since 1880. Four years later the company shifted its sights to the South Island, acquiring 122-year-old The Southland Times. The following year, 1985, it took over The Timaru Herald, founded in 1864 and a daily newspaper since 1878. In 1987 the Christchurch Press Co Ltd, publisher of The Press since 1861, joined the INL group.

    INL moved north again in 1989, buying Taranaki Newspapers Limited and part of NZ News Limited, including the Auckland Star, the Sunday Star and Suburban Newspapers (Auckland), New Zealand's largest group of free community newspapers. The Auckland Star was subsequently closed down.

    In 1993 INL moved south again, acquiring the Nelson Evening Mail (since renamed The Nelson Mail). The Marlborough Express was bought in 1998 and a number of small community newspapers have also been acquired in recent times, including South Otago Newspapers.

    INL's New Zealand divisions eventually published more than 80 daily, Sunday, community, suburban and weekly newspaper titles, magazines and specialist publications. New Zealand growth was complemented by offshore expansion. Independent News Corp (Inc) was formed in the United States and acquired a string of suburbans in Houston Texas and a number of newspapers on the West Coast. INL's US interests were sold in July 1998.

    In 1990 INL invested $200 million in Gordon and Gotch magazine distributors in Australia and New Zealand, their allied business and regional newspapers in Victoria, Australia. These operations were bought from major INL shareholder News Ltd. In 1993 it divested itself of Wiljef Stationery and its computer consumables company Microtronix, acquired as part of the Gordon and Gotch deal but regarded as outside INL's "core" business. It also sold its large commercial printing division (Adams Print) to Pacific Magazine and Printing Limited. Late in 1999 INL announced it was selling its Australian Gordon and Gotch division, but was retaining Gordon and Gotch (NZ) Ltd.

    Early in 1964 Rupert Murdoch's News Limited made his first overseas newspaper investment - a 29.57 percent stake in the Wellington Publishing Company. The News Limited holding in INL fluctuated over the years and was just over 49 percent in 1997.

    Having established a strong newspaper publishing network, INL turned its interests to building a magazine division in New Zealand with publications focusing on home, family and outdoor leisure activities - homes, gardening, fishing, boating - along with motoring magazines.

    INL took a 25% interest in Terabyte, a web design and development company, in 1994. This was increased to 51% in June 1995. INL sold its interest in Terabyte Interactive in 1999.

    INL bought 48% of Sky Network Television in 1997.[1] INL started, a news website, in 2000.

    It sold its publishing assets, including Wellington's Dominion Post, to the John Fairfax conglomerate of Australia on 30 June 2003. This left it with a 78% stake in Sky Network Television as its main asset.[2] In July 2005, Independent Newspapers merged with Sky Network Television into a new company, MergeCo, which was renamed Sky Network Television Limited. Most of the publications now belong to Stuff.

    Who owns the news? The 25 CEOs that control the world’s biggest news outlets

    •  by Alex Ion Feb 7, 2020
    • Ever wondered who owns your favorite news websites?

      Our latest study shows the current state of media consolidation around the world.

      We started off by identifying the top 50 most visited news websites in the world as of December 2019, using data from web traffic analysis company Alexa and market intelligence provider SimilarWeb. We then determined the parent companies behind each of these 50 outlets and identified all of the properties in their online media portfolios.

      The last step was to put a name (and a face) to each company by identifying the highest-level owners. For news sites that are owned by investment firms with a majority stake, we opted for the CEO or director of the investment firm. For news sites that are owned or controlled by the government, the head of government was listed as the highest-level owner.

    • The world’s most influential media moguls: Which CEOs have the most power?

      The CEO with the biggest audience is Hans Vestberg, CEO of American multinational telecommunications conglomerate Verizon Communications Inc. Vestberg’s outlets boast a combined monthly readership of over 3.8 billion and include media powerhouses of the likes of Yahoo, AOL, Huff Post, TechCrunch, Engadget and Autoblog. This means that publications under the direction of Verizon Communications reach an incredible 52% of the world’s population.

    • Also based in the US are the Newhouse family, who have built a media empire that includes 47 titles, with a combined monthly readership of 1.5 billion. Their company Advance Publications, owns Reddit, Wired, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and many more.

      Third in the list is Daniel Yong Zhang, the CEO of Alibaba Group, which has 3 outlets under its umbrella: UC Browser, UC News India, and South China Morning Post. This equates to a combined monthly readership of over 1 billion people.

The companies that control global news

Several names are synonymous with media domination around the world: News Corp in the United States, the U.K., and Australia, Globo in Brazil, Yomiuri Shimbun in Japan.

While many of the oldest media conglomerates are as powerful as ever and still growing, the emergence of digital news has substantially altered the media landscape and allowed new companies to emerge as major players in the news industry. Tech giants like Microsoft and Amazon owner Jeff Bezos, as well as telecommunications conglomerates such as Verizon and AT&T, now rank among the top owners of the world’s media.

In recent years, asset management firms and private investors have increasingly bought majority stakes in legacy newspapers and have come to dominate the list of the top media owners worldwide. In April 2019, for example, private equity firm Great Hill Partners acquired the Gizmodo Media Group and The Onion, and combined their digital news assets, which include Gizmodo, Jezebel, and The A.V. Club, into a new company named G/O Media Inc. In August 2019, American investment firm KKR purchased the largest stake in Axel Springer SE, a German media group whose assets include Business Insider and Rolling Stone.

A significant share of the world’s media is owned by national governments. Through outlets such as PBS and NPR, the BBC, and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the governments of the United States, the U.K., and Australia all have significant media holdings. State ownership of media in English-speaking countries is dwarfed, however, by the Government of China’s media holdings.[1]

Who owns global news

Who dominates the news industry in the USA, UK and Australia?

Some of the top media owners in the U.S. have dominated the news media landscape for over a century, and continue to grow in the era of digital news. The Hearst name, for example, first appeared on a newspaper masthead in 1887. Today Hearst Communications owns dozens of newspapers and magazines throughout the country, each with a significant online presence. Advance Publications, which was founded by Samuel Irving Newhouse Sr. in 1922 and is still family-owned today, has a portfolio that includes Reddit, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and American City Business Journals.

Online news media in the U.K. is dominated by publishers of traditional print media. News Corp, through News Corp UK, and Daily Mail and General Trust plc own many of the largest national news sites in the U.K. Through its subsidiary Local World Holdings Ltd., Reach PLC owns more than five dozen regional newspapers and their corresponding websites. The Guardian is owned by the Scott Trust Limited, which exists solely to control the finances of the Guardian and ensure its editorial independence.

From 1987 to 2006, Australia had specific legislation limiting foreign ownership of media companies on the continent, as well as restrictions on cross-ownership of media companies meant to preserve the diversity of news media.[1] Despite these restrictions, today Australia has a relatively high degree of media concentration. National online news media in Australia is essentially controlled by two companies: News Corp, through News Corp Australia, and Nine. Rural news media is largely dominated by Australian Community Media, whose portfolio includes over 170 regional newspapers and their corresponding websites. The Conversation is one of the only major online news sites in Australia that is independently owned.

What does this all mean?

While many believed the internet would bring openness and diversity to the world’s media, online news media has become increasingly consolidated over the past several decades.

According to a recent analysis from the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information research center, the market concentration of internet media has more than doubled since 2000. In an analysis of 30 countries, researchers found that, on average, the top four media companies in each country hold 40% of that country’s media content market.[1]  Such a high degree of media concentration — which is only projected to increase in the near future — has far-reaching implications for social, cultural, economic, and political life.

As the concentration of online news has increased, so has public distrust in mass media. A recent Gallup poll shows that Americans remain largely mistrustful of the mass media, with just 41% currently having “a great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in newspapers, television and radio to report the news “fully, accurately and fairly.”

The news media has a powerful influence over consumer tastes, political opinions, and culture at large. As media moguls continue to build their empires, and emerging conglomerates begin to expand into the news media industry, it is important to remain aware of who exactly owns the news.


To determine the companies and individuals that own the top news sites in the world, we identified the top owners of the news sites with the most monthly traffic as of December 2019. Data on average visitor traffic for the past one to three months and the relative rank of each news site came from Alexa, an Amazon company, and market intelligence provider SimilarWeb.

We identified the owners of the top 50 news sites globally, in the United States, in the U.K., and in Australia, respectively, using financial filings, corporate press announcements, and other public sources. We then isolated the 20 companies with the most visited sites in each geography, as well as other newsworthy media companies, and identified all of the properties in their online media portfolios, as well as the name of their highest-level owners, using financial filings, corporate press announcements, and other public sources.

For news sites that are owned by investment firms with a majority stake, the CEO or director of the investment firm was listed as the highest-level owner. For news sites that are owned or directly (or indirectly) controlled by the government (as is the case of the BBC, who since 2017 has had its board members selected by the UK government), the head of government was listed as the highest-level owner.

To identify which companies and CEOs have the most titles and combined readerships, we generated a list of all the URLs for each publication under each respective CEO. We then used SimilarWeb to find out the estimated monthly visit figures of all the sites.

From SELWYN PARKER AFR Correspondent in Auckland
Sep 28, 1994 

A 24 PER CENT slump in the pre-tax profits returned by its Australian interests continued to drag down the performance of New Zealand's biggest newspaper publisher, INL Ltd, the annual report revealed yesterday.

The assets were bought several years ago in a deal with INL's single largest shareholder, Mr Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation Ltd.

INL's main Australian assets, which are primarily Victorian-based community newspapers and stationery to magazine distributor Gordon and Gotch, posted pre-tax profits of $NZ21.9 million ($17.7 million) in a continuing difficult market, the company's chairman, Sir Colin Maiden, said.

The figure represents a fall from $NZ28.7 million delivered in 1993, which Sir Colin also described as an "extremely difficult" year at the time.

INL has $NZ280 million worth of assets in Australia out of total assets of$NZ734 million but has so far been unable to produce worthwhile returns, in spite of pouring capital investment in the form of new production systems for the Bendigo Advertiser and the Geelong Advertiser and their associated give-away newspapers.

At $NZ488 million, INL's Australian revenues are some $NZ80 million larger than its New Zealand earnings.

Gordon and Gotch, INL's distribution arm in Australia, has proved a difficult investment, too. Magazines sales have been clocked up at much lower margins than in New Zealand and, as Sir Colin has repeatedly noted, the company's profit margins "have been tested".

Gordon and Gotch has had particular difficulties with its stationery wholesaling division, which relies on the discretionary dollar spent through newsagencies. It has also been hard hit by flat purchasing and subscription sales from schools, libraries and government departments because of tightening Federal and State budgets.

Sir Colin said the "difficult Australian economy" was the main reason why INL had narrowly failed to meet its overall profit forecast targets.

The company posted an after-tax profit for 1994 of $NZ47 million, up from$NZ41.2 million in 1993, largely because of a buoyant domestic economy.

INL's New Zealand interests, which include The Dominion and The Christchurch Press and a stable of magazines, posted pre-tax profits of$NZ58.9 million, slightly up on 1993.

Independent Newspapers (NZSE: INL) is keen to take its stake in pay-TV operator Sky (NZSE: SKY) to 66%.

The publishing company, which currently holds just under 50% of Sky, has announced two restricted transfer notices for an extra 65 million shares.

INL wants to buy Todd Capital's entire 11% shareholding in Sky, issuing shares as a consideration on a one for one basis.

It has also issued a second RTN to buy between 5% and 6% more shares in the price range between $3.30 and $3.60 per share.


Under the issued notices INL can begin acquiring the shares from May 28 and the company says it intends to draw down debt to fund the on-market acquisitions.

If the transactions are completed INL's shareholding in Sky will rise 49.96% to around 66.25%.

Major shareholdings in INL after the transaction will be News Limited at 44.4, down from 49.3%, and Todd Capital at 14.5%, up from 5%.

Independent Newspapers CEO, Tom Mockridge, says the transaction is consistent with his company's understanding that Todd Capital would like to align its New Zealand media interests with News in INL, and is consistent with INL's desire to lift its exposure to Sky TV.

"Todd Capital has a long history of making strategic investments in this sector, and the common shareholding in INL would allow a joint focus on building a major integrated New Zealand media business.

"We are confident that under the excellent leadership of Sky CEO, John Fellet, Sky can continue to grow strongly."

Mr Mockridge says the increased debt required to fund the on-market share acquisition can be comfortably accommodated within his company's existing debt covenant ratios.

He also says the company would "expect to retain the capacity to pay dividends at a level consistent with previous years."

"It is the company's current intention to continue paying fully-imputed dividends at that level on the expanded capital base if the proposed transactions are completed.

"The change in shareholding levels of each company is not expected to impact on INL's ability to carry forward its imputation credits nor Sky's ability to carry forward its tax losses."

Mr Mockridge said INL had no plans to buy Sky shares beyond its targeted 66.25%.

INL to merge Evening Post with The Dominion - NZ Herald

24 Jun, 2002 
Independent Newspapers Ltd said today it was merging its two Wellington dailies -- The Dominion and The Evening Post.

The company said there were likely to be 80-90 job losses, two thirds amongst editorial staff, when the new morning paper, The Dominion Post, begins next month.

The announcement was made by INL chief executive Tom Mockridge who said the proposal would achieve a much larger, stronger paper offering readers more news and features.

"Increased circulation would give advertisers greater reach." Mr Mockridge said, adding that Wellington Newspapers had suffered from an advertising downturn which meant resources were stretched to sustain two separate publications.

Mr Mockridge said the downturn in Wellington advertising had coincided with a steady decline in The Post's circulation and a recent increase in the price of newsprint.

INL, 44 owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Ltd, said it believed two daily newspapers were no longer sustainable in the Wellington market.

The papers are published by INL subsidiary, Wellington Newspapers Limited. They currently have separate editorial staffs but share advertising, production and printing facilities under a single management.

Mr Mockridge said the company would consult with staff and unions over the next few days before confirming its plans at the end of the week.

He said the company needed to implement the change in a reasonably short time frame to minimise uncertainty for readers, advertisers and staff and to retain business confidence.

"While we are convinced the merged paper is the right way to go, staff will have their own views and we will consider those."

Mr Mockridge said one option had been to simply close the afternoon paper and retain The Dominion.

"But the Post is held in close affection by a large number of Wellingtonians and is too good a paper to see disappear. The best of the Post will be incorporated the new paper along with the best of The Dominion."

The new paper will be titled The Dominion Post.

While job losses appeared inevitable, Mr Mockridge said the merged paper option would retain more employees than a straight closure of one of the titles.

Wellington Newspapers currently employs 490 including 30 part-timers. The editorial department of The Dominion Post would comprise people from both newspapers. He said INL would discharge all redundancy obligations and staffing issues would be worked through with unions and employees over the next three to four weeks.

Where possible, the approach would be based on voluntary redundancy, he said.

INL's managing director (publishing) Rick Neville, a former Evening Post editor, said the Wellington community, Post readers and staff would regret the loss of the afternoon paper.

"This is a sad day in that Wellington has been unique in Australasia for one city to support both a morning and afternoon newspaper.

"However, the outcome will be a far stronger paper going forward."

He said international experience showed that similar mergers had led to strong circulation growth for morning metropolitan dailies.

"The Post is a fine newspaper. But the reality is that for some years, it has been standing against an outgoing tide which has seen every other metropolitan afternoon paper in New Zealand and Australia close."

He said there had been an increasing swing away from the Post by advertisers who realised the Dominion had a significantly higher readership.

From a high of 99,704 in 1974, the Post's circulation had declined to 54,000.

The Dominion's most recent audited circulation figure of 70,565 was an increase of 1994 on the previous audit, but down from a high of 77,268 in 1968.

Mr Neville said advertisers would gain from a greater reach, achieved at a more cost-effective advertising rate.

He said the objective would be to merge "the authority of the Dominion with the flair of the Post to create a substantial, exciting paper".

Highly rated writers, columnists and cartoonists from both papers would be included in the mix while an expanded newsroom would have the resources to find and present more news and features in depth, he said.

The editor-designate of the proposed new paper is Dominion editor Richard Long, who will report to managing editor-designate Tim Pankhurst, until recently, editor of the Post.

Post editor of the Post, Clive Lind, would become associate editor-designate. - NZPA
