They are not dramatic. They are pernicious. Most psychopaths are subtle. They are more like poison than a knife, and they are more like slow-working poison than cyanide.So what bullies usually do, they start and stop, start and stop. That achieves the maximal stress syndrome, and this is the great secret of bullying. Never overdo it. Small doses. The victim will do the rest. ~ Sam Vaknin, psychopath

Iraq war inquiry: Blair government ‘massaged’ Saddam Hussein WMD threat

Carne Ross, a British diplomat to the UN who was responsible for Iraq in the runup to the invasion, said intelligence was “massaged” into “more robust and terrifying” statements about Saddam’s supposed WMD.

In evidence to the Chilcot inquiry, which heard that the Foreign Office had objected to the release of documents that he wanted to disclose, Ross said: “This process of exaggeration was gradual and proceeded by accretion and editing from document to document, in a way that allowed those participating to convince themselves that they were not engaged in blatant dishonesty.”

In an example of what he called a process of “deliberate public exaggeration”, Ross said the government in March 2002 sent the parliamentary Labour party a paper that included the claim that “if Iraq’s weapons programmes remained unchecked, Iraq could develop a crude nuclear device in about five years”.

He said the government’s real assessment was more or less the opposite: that sanctions were effectively preventing Iraq from developing a nuclear capability.

The statement to the PLP was “purely hypothetical”, said Ross, “and was true in 1991 as it was in 2002; there was no evidence at either point that Iraq was close to obtaining the necessary material”. A senior Foreign Office official sent a minute to an adviser to Jack Straw, the then foreign secretary, warning about the discrepancy in the memo to the PLP. But, Ross told the inquiry, the official was ignored.

Social engineering in practice:

First some conspiracy facts:

  1. Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections.
  2. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. No credible evidence has ever been presented that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.
  3. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons.
  4. An attack on Iran will have global consequences.

Now…

WSJ (high-end social engineering rag): Why hasn’t Israel bombed Iran (yet)?, by Bret Stephens, former editor-in-chief at the JPost, via the Truth Seeker

1. Israeli military planners have concluded that any attack would be unlikely to succeed (or succeed at a reasonable price). “But this analysis fails to appreciate the depth of Israeli fears of a nuclear Iran, and the lengths they are prepared to go to stop it.” EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE NO EVIDENCE THAT IRAN HAS A NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM.

2. Israel needs more time to improve its offensive and defensive military capabilities, (ie: to suck dry the US taxpayers.)

3. Netanyahu and his cabinet can’t agree what to do (and who will be blamed if something goes wrong.)

4. And something might go wrong. “This is an unenviable position, and Israel’s friends abroad would do well to spare it easy lectures. Iran is not Israel’s problem alone. It should not be Israel’s problem alone to solve, to its own frightful peril.” EVEN THOUGH THE “PROBLEM” OF IRAN IS ENTIRELY ISRAEL’S INVENTION BECAUSE IRAN THREATENS ISRAEL’S HEGEMONY IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

Commentary by Truth Seeker:

There is a fifth and final reason that Israel hasn’t yet struck at Iran. Despite his impressive record as a journalist, Bret Stephens seems unable or unwilling to acknowledge that Israel has yet to persuade its “ally”to do the job for them.

America’s reluctance to strike Iran can largely be attributed to elements in its military command. But that could change, particularly under someone like Patraeus, who seems to have presidential ambitions.

So while at a stretch it might just be possible, a unilateral strike on Iran would prove very costly for Israel. Indeed it could prove disasterous and rather than face the consequences alone Israel wants the rest of the world to help pay the price.

If only subliminally however, the above does at least prepare readers for the prospect of conflict with Iran.

Do you see a process of deliberate public exaggeration, just like in the lead up to the Iraq war?

Do you see the starting and stopping? The threat advancing and receding? Month after month, year after year.

Do you see the actual facts of the situation diametrically opposed to the breathless claims justifying war?

Softening you up. Confusing you. Conditioning you. That’s the point.

that might leave a mark

Reportedly, the Mavi Marmara has a sister ship that was sold to a Greek company and is called “Dream.”
Was “Dream” used in a staged production of the Mavi Marmara raid?

Via suraci, Chuckyman, something very interesting….

Yeah, um, please explain…..?

Forum link: http://www.aspsystems.fi/wtf/forum.php?showmsg=25786

The unraveling of this tall tale on the high seas began on the morning of Friday, June the 4th when the poster known as Shadow made the following remark to another forum poster known as JayRodney:

“I had a close look at web pics of the Mavi Marmara and the ship in the vid that shows the Turks attacking the IDF as they land. I do not believe it is the same ship. Compare them though, I’d like your opinion on it.”

To which JayRodney responded: “I have to conclude by my initial observation ‘Mavi Marmara’ should be visible 36-37 seconds into the video. Octo is getting screen shots and we will make the best comparison based upon available evidence.

I think it’s safe to call shenanigans. It looks suspiciously like Mossad Productions, I’d say the margin of error is less than 1%. This is most assuredly propaganda.”

Then the proverbial bomb was dropped, irrefutable evidence provided in the form of an animated .gif file:

The poster known as Octo said: “ok, the pics are from slightly different angles, but to the best of my knowledge at approximately the same place of the ship(s) superimposed: doesn’t even look like the same ship to me.”

Proof positive! The boats name should have been visible in at least one frame of the SKY NEWS video. Not only is the ships designation ‘Mavi Marmara’ conspicuously absent, but the entire vessel is clearly different; it’s not the same boat!

This IDF footage is clearly fabricated, I wonder how the Israeli government will explain this away?

I believe the technical term is “busted.”

phasing us out as a species

In the 21st century most couples will not be able to have children. Those who will manage will have mentally retarded kids.

Russian scientists conducted an experiment proving that the main action principle of genetically modified produce (GM) is a “ban for procreation” for next generations of mammals.

This is the effect wanted from GM produce by Microsoft founder Bill Gates who started the struggle against the growth of the world population. Today, the community of billionaires throws GM “bombs,” disguised as charitable intentions, on African and Asian countries. Meanwhile, in Moscow alone where state purchasing of transgenic produce is prohibited, 20 % of local and 35% of imported produce are genetically modified.

Russia Today: Genetically modified seeds have their day in court

In the early 1990s, Nicaragua, Mexico and Philippines were affected by a horrible epidemic, and it took scientists a while to find its source. Perfectly healthy young women had miscarriages during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. Further attempts to get pregnant had the same results, followed by infertility. Doctors were at a loss. The only common denominator in all cases was the women’s participation in mass tetanus vaccination supervised by the World Health Organization and funded by Rockefeller’s Fund.

It was hard to question the sincerity of the intentions. However, Roman-Catholic organization Comite Pro Vida based in Mexico decided to test capsules with the vaccine and found something horrible. The solution contained human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), which is a natural hormone required to maintain pregnancy. But how could the hormone become a part of the vaccine? Further analysis shocked the scientists. Combination of tetanus agent with HCG stimulates formation of antibodies for the latter, making women unable to carry a child. In other words, the vaccine was a concealed form of abortion.

When the plot of the billionaire David Rockefeller and the WHO was revealed, GM continued what they have started. Two year ago, the exact same things that happened in Nicaragua and Philippines occurred in Zimbabwe and Guinea. This time, the women who suffered shared love for canned corn. Despite the expectations, tests of the cans’ content have not revealed any life threatening components, and the amount of preservatives was compliant with the norm.

It was when the first suspicions regarding bio terrorism and destructive influence of transgenic substances on humans were raised by a toxicologist with the South African University.

The epidemic of infertility in the developing countries has not occurred out of the blue. Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and one of the wealthiest people on the planet who has the image of a charitable philanthropist, is involved in solving global health issues. He fights lack of food and poverty in Africa, allocating billions of dollars to support the struggle. Recently he openly stated that the goal of his charity is reduction of the planet’s population, first of all, in the third world countries.

“It is an open secret that the world magnates, in particular, the US, Japan, Canada and the EU, are concerned with the deficit of natural resources,” explains Irina Aliverova, Doctor of Sociology.

“The UN has an official document that divides the world population into the main group (golden billion) middle group, who has insufficient natural resources, and auxiliary group, represented by the population of developing countries, including Russia. The last category, nearly five billion people, should be gotten rid of as weeds.”

One of the mechanisms of a horrific program of Gates and Rockefeller currently supported by the US government was once revealed by Mitch Hein, president of biotech company Epicyte. He said that antibodies were taken from women with rare condition, immune infertility. The genes were isolated, and through the methods of genetic engineering they were inserted into the genome of regular corn seeds supplied to third world countries. It means that Africans were sowing on their fields genetically modified corn-murder with inserted hidden contraception. Hein explained what happens to people when they eat this corn. Generally, antibodies get drawn to the surface of sperm. They attach to it and make sperm so heavy that it cannot move forward.

In Russia, production of GM produce is prohibited, while consumption of five transgenic cultures is allowed (beets, corn ??? 810 banned in Europe, soy, potatoes and rice). There is no official conclusion regarding harmful effects of GM on humans. Yet, Moscow Institute of Biology named after Koltsov and National Association of Genetic Safety conducted an independent experiment. They fed hamsters with transgenic soy for a year. The same soy is used in Russia to feed cattle, and it is supplied from Holland as GM-free. This soy is also allowed for human consumption. Now it is clear what it may result in – rodents expressed delayed growth and development and serious decrease of reproductive function that resulted in inability to obtain third generation of hamsters.

“Infertility in third generation of animals grown on GM products means that the nature puts an end to these species and does not let them procreate,” says Alexander Baranov, senior associate with the Institute of Biology. “This means that GM food leads to evolutionary dead end and degradation of species. During the research another interesting fact was discovered. The animals develop pilosis of oral cavity . ”

Although scientists are not sure that it was the GM food that caused mutations, the world had noticed long time ago that toxic proteins and mutant combinations may develop in transgenic products.

No scientist will agree to predict how artificially inserted plant gene will behave in a chromosome. Possibly, three generations later women will give birth to children with hairy mouths, just like those of hamsters. Or, they may not be able to conceive at all. Maybe this is the reason why Russian and foreign manufacturers of transgenic products are afraid to mark the products as GM and prefer paying fines for violation of the law. There is no other method to recognize GM products.

As the number of infertile couples in Russia grows from year to year and today five million families are unable to have children, it looks like the hellish machine of Bill Gates has reached Russia. While scientists are afraid to experiment on humans, everyone who goes to a grocery store unwillingly becomes a guinea pig. Russian Academy of Science suggested introducing a moratorium on GM products until their safety is proven. The scientists’ attempts to get through to the officials were fruitless. Meanwhile, the fund of Bill and Melinda Gates is preparing a new GM bomb, transgenic “golden” rice that causes cillae on fallopian tubes. Again, it is hidden behind charitable intents. Allegedly, the rice replenishes vitamin A and iron in the body. Recently Bill Gates gave a speech at a conference in Long Beach where he mentioned that he was looking forward to a vaccine that will reduce growth of the world population.

What other countries do:

1. India refused the US humanitarian aid in produce at the amount of $100 million a year.
2. China banned sales of GM on its internal market, but its export is still going on.
3. GM produce is not used in Slovenia, Austria, Greece, France, Luxemburg, and Great Britain.
4. In Great Britain the produce has to be labeled even on restaurant menus.
5. Italy does not buy transgenic seeds.

Geert Wilders of the Netherlands is a right-wing politician. He may be a CIA-Mossad asset and a crypto-Jew / Sabbatean.

aangirfan: Geert Wilders ‘has Jewish-Indonesian origins’

  • Geert Wilders, is a Dutch politician, and possibly a CIA-Mossad asset.
  • Wilders’ Party for Freedom is the second largest Dutch party in the European parliament.
  • Wilders is a strong supporter of Israel and has criticised countries he sees as enemies of Israel.[13]
  • Wilders supports implementing Israel’s administrative detention in the Netherlands, a practice heavily criticized by human rights groups.[26]
  • Wilders believes that he has Jewish ancestry.[6]
  • The Dutch newspaper Telegraaf reported in May 2007 that Geert Wilders had been accompanied by the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service for years.
  • During that time, Wilders had been regularly meeting officials at the Israeli Embassy in The Hague.[12]

Dr.M’s Analysis: Exposed: Geert Wilders is a Zionist Jew

Pretending to be atheists and/or members of other faiths is a very old tactic employed by Sabbatean Jewry so this is hardly surprising. As if visiting “israel” 40 times, living on a kibbutz (illegal “israeli” settlement) for years, wearing a kippa and banging his head on the wailing wall, and reporting to the local “israeli” embassy once a month while claiming to be a Mossad agent wasn’t enough gefilte fishy enough. …In June a genealogist said he had found several Indonesian ancestors of the populist Dutch politician known for his rabid anti-immigrant and anti-Islam ideas. Now anthropologist Lizzy van Leeuwen describes how his roots can be seen as the driving force behind his outspoken views….The 6-page article reveals that Wilders’ grandmother, Johanna Ording-Meijer, came from an old Jewish-Indonesian family and that Wilders lied about this in his 2008 biography.

MP Geert Wilders will go on trial for inciting hatred and discrimination in October, not June as first thought, the Volkskrant reports on Tuesday. Amsterdam court said it had been forced to make the change because of scheduling problems. The court says it needs five days to hear evidence in the case. The MP faces five charges religious insult and anti-Muslim incitement. In January, the public prosecution department extended the prosecution case to include inciting hatred of Muslims, Moroccans and non-Western immigrants.

From the comments at aan’s post about Wilders, suraci brings to our attention another person of Dutch heritage, Nicholas van Hoogstraten, a Briton, and his links to Zimbabwe and the loathsome dictator Robert Mugabe.

January 2008: Nicholas van Hoogstraten - Zimbabwe arrest, Telegraph.co.uk

Property tycoon Nicholas van Hoogstraten has been arrested in Zimbabwe over allegations that he was illegally trading in foreign currency. The 62-year-old Briton, a vocal supporter Zimbabwe’s president, Robert Mugabe, is accused of receiving rent on a string of properties he owned in foreign currency, which is illegal in Zimbabwe….His latest arrest comes despite his reported friendship with Mr Mugabe, whom he once described as “100 per cent decent and incorruptible”….He said officers had also seized more than 100 pictures from the house, and understood that some showed Mr van Hoogstraten and the 22-year-old woman naked and in “compromising situations”.

January 2006: Jane Kelly meets Nicholas van Hoogstraten, Times Online. Mr. van Hoogstraten asks, where are the bodies? Where indeed?!? We ask the same thing about the many disappeared people of the world, and yet we do not conclude that no crime has been committed just because we don’t know what happened to the bodies. Then again, our brains obviously work differently than Mr. van Hoogstraten’s.

“I’m not immoral, never have been. I am amoral, that’s different,” snaps Nicholas van Hoogstraten, a stickler for accuracy (at least his own version of it). “The things the papers write about me. I’ve never threatened anyone or killed anyone — where are the bodies?” When Hoogstraten asks a direct question, accompanied by a beady stare, you often feel yourself fumbling for an answer…….Hoogstraten keeps nothing in his own name. “Of course I wouldn’t think twice about having people killed, if they threatened me,” he says, “but if I was to do it, it would be done properly by professionals not obviously connected with me, it would be a professional contract killing.”

This month it was reported that Mr. Mugabe, along with people from Israel, South Africa and China, are reportedly smuggling lots of diamonds out of Zimbabwe every day. Some of the diamonds are from the Marange field, owed by Andrew Cranswick, a native Zimbabwean. Cranswick purchased the field for a nominal sum. De Beers had let a claim on the field lapse, but the field turned out to be very productive.

Bob’s Dirty Diamonds, by Jon Swain, Senior Foreign Correspondent, The Sunday Times, London

African Consolidated Resources (ACR), set up by both white and black Zimbabweans, was looking for new mining opportunities in Zimbabwe. It pegged a claim to an abandoned, unexploited field, bought for a nominal sum on the chance of finding diamonds there. Problems arose when diamonds were found….

Although the Zimbabwe High Court ruled in September that ACR clearly owns the Marange field, Cranswick, the CEO, has a colossal fight on his hands to get it back from the government. In February the Supreme Court ordered all mining to cease pending a final ruling on ownership. Its judgment has been ignored. Meanwhile, millions of dollars from the diamonds are being siphoned off by President Mugabe, his diamond-loving wife, Grace, and their greedy inner circle to enrich and entrench themselves in power a few years longer.

…Last year, a gang of Israeli diamond smugglers put out a contract on him [Cranswick - ed.] to make sure he did not get in the way of their supply of diamonds smuggled out of Marange. Now, impeccable sources told me that beside his name in secret government files is written the word “Bull-Bar” — CIO code for a person designated to meet with a “road accident”.

…Secret government documents obtained by The Sunday Times show that quite the reverse happened. Cranswick’s long-drawn-out legal process had given Mugabe’s lieutenants and their foreign backers — Chinese, Israelis, South Africans — time to entrench their systems for keeping control of the fabulously rich field. The old operation in which an ad hoc set of diggers plundered the diamonds on their behalf amid general lawlessness has expanded into a new, sophisticated money-making machine largely hidden from the eyes of the world.

The documents set out the measures that are being taken. The Chinese army is helping to construct a military airstrip on ACR’s field with a one-mile-long runway capable of taking the biggest military transport planes. Armed Chinese soldiers are on the site. There are shipping containers filled with weapons. This move follows arms-purchasing visits by Chiwenga to China last year. A tented army camp has been set up under a retired brigadier, and millions have been invested in state-of-the-art mining machinery capable of extracting thousands of carats of diamonds an hour. A sophisticated operation is also in train to get the most valuable stones out of the country. Stones worth $3m-$7m are smuggled out every day. The Chinese embassy in Harare is involved in smuggling some out in the diplomatic bag, according to Zimbabwe intelligence leaks, and one of the key figures is a Chinese man with links to Grace Mugabe — all in defiance of the Supreme Court’s order to halt all mining at Marange.

Since that report, other news from Zimbabwe indicates that Mugabe — and presumably his allies — are not going anywhere for the moment.

After visit with Ahmadinejad, Zimbabwe set to welcome North Korea World Cup team, CSM, April 25, 2010

Several days ago, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe rolled out the red carpet for Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, reportedly in celebration of a secret deal for Zimbabwe to receive Iranian oil in exchange for access to the large amounts of uranium ore thought to be under its soil. …The rogue regime’s national soccer team is coming to Zimbabwe May 25 to train ahead of the World Cup in neighboring South Africa. For many Zimbabweans, however, news of the arrangement is unacceptable.

Funerals for Zimbabwe politicians spark debate over national hero designation, VOA, April 28, 2010

Officials and rank-and-file members of both formations of Zimbabwe’s Movement For Democratic Change set aside past differences on Wednesday to mourn three top officers of the MDC grouping of Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara who were killed in a highway accident in Midlands province on Saturday….ZANU-PF official Alice Nkomo, killed in a separate road accident the same day on the Bulawayo-Plumtree highway, has been declared a provincial heroine and was to be laid to rest on Thursday in Bulawayo.

High court dismisses ACR challenge, allows sale of diamonds from Marange, Reuters, April 28, 2010

A High Court ruled on Tuesday that the government could sell diamonds, dismissing a challenge by junior miner African Consolidated Resources to stop Zimbabwe from auctioning precious stones mined from its claims in Marange.

The Mugabe regime, clearly in tight with the diamond business, which is run by Jews, is also now in tight with Iran.

Iran has inked a deal to buy uranium from Zimbabwe.

Ahmadinejad and Mugabe, AFP photo

Iran has struck a secret deal with Zimbabwe to mine its untapped uranium reserves in a move to secure raw material for its steadily expanding nuclear programme.

The agreement was sealed last month during a visit to Tehran by a close aide to Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president who last weekend celebrated 30 years in power, The Sunday Telegraph has learned. In return for supplying oil, which Zimbabwe desperately needs to keep its faltering economy moving, Iran has been promised access to potentially huge deposits of uranium ore – which can be converted into the basic fuel for nuclear power or enriched to make a nuclear bomb.

…The uranium deal will heighten fears in the West that Iran is stepping up its nuclear programme, which intelligence agencies believe is intended to lead to the development of nuclear weapons in the near future.

Why on earth would Ahmadinejad, a supposedly smart guy, do something so incredibly stupid as tangling Iran up with this crooked psychopathic nutjob Mugabe, not to be trusted under any circumstances, and with God only knows how many criminals running all over Zimbabwe conducting the blood diamond business and certainly whatever sorts of jobs money can buy, unless he wants trouble?

when no one will ever believe you

The following document (scanned image here) reveals the workings of a sick mind. That mind belongs to Paul Shanley, one of the more notorious sexual predators who prowled about the Catholic Church destroying people’s beloved children.

By George Rizer, pool (source)
The Rev. Paul Shanley at a bail hearing May 9 (2002)  and handing out candy to children in 1983.

First, the letter, titled: Report of Rev. Paul Shanley’s talk to Dignity-Integrity 9/23/77, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Rochester, NY. Dated 10/4/77.

Dear Jean,

In regard to Fr. Paul Shanley, the following are some of his statements per your request.

Homosexual acts are not sinful, sick, a crime, nor are they immoral.

What has been done to gays by the straight community calls out for vengeance from heaven. Gay persons aren’t angry enough, they should become more angry at society.

He has been following Lewis crew, who is an advocate for gay teachers and gay curriculum in schools, and he (Fr. Shanley) agrees with Crew, that gay children should have gay teachers and gay curriculum.

Most first homosexual encounters are with straights. It is straights who seduce youngsters.

Further, “straight people cannot tell the truth about sex.”

Straights spend time worrying about the bedsores of gays in regard to their sexual activity. (This brought a big laugh.)

He doesn’t advocate as some clergy to that gays form gay unions (2 forming a pr.), because in his experience counseling those in gay unions, he finds that gay unions invariably fall apart. (He laughed) and said just as heterosexual unions are falling apart, but in gay unions no children are involved.

He stated celibacy is impossible, therefore, the only alternative is for gays to have sex with different persons whenever they want to.

He spoke of pedophilia (which is a non coerced sexual manipulation of sex organs including oral-genital sex between an adult and child). He stated that the adult is not the seducer — the “kid” is the seducer and further the kid is not traumatized by the act per se, the kid is traumatized when the police and authorities “drag” the kid in for questioning.

He stated that he can think of no sexual act that causes psychic damage — “not even incest or bestiality”.

He stated that clergy do not work with gays because they are fearful of losing their reputation — that they may be thought to be gay. He said this is an indictment of the clergy. He said it would be a good idea if people thought the clergy was gay because it would have a radicallizing (sic) effect. Fr. Shanley described himself as an ultra liberal.

To top off his speech he said, “Homosexuality is a gift from God and should be celebrated”.

I have a clipping which states that Fr. Paul Shanley, of the Archdiocese of Boston represents “sexual minorities” on the Young Adult Ministry Board of USCC. Also a Fr. Patrick O’Neill OSA is the USCC’s representative for young adult ministry.

Fr. Shanley said he was appointed to his position by a Cardinal Maderis (my spelling of the cardinal’s name may be incorrect).

Fr. Shanley also stated that he had spoken to several clergy the afternoon of the evening meeting of Dignity/Integrity Sept. 23, 1977, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. 8.P.M. Fr. Shanley was wearing full Roman garb.

Sorry I didn’t get this off to you sooner, but have been very busy. Hope it helps.

Spiritually,

D.S.

Shanley worked with young people. He made his reputation as a “street priest.”

The Rev. Paul R. Shanley made his reputation as a Boston “street priest” in the 1960s and 70s — a crusader for runaways and drifters, drug addicts, and teenagers struggling with questions about their sexual identity.

The church’s response to the letter, money quote:

The position of the Archdiocese of Boston, is that, while Father Shanley enjoys the Faculties of the Archdiocese of Boston, he alone must be held responsible for any statements regarding homosexuality.

Oh sure. And we’ll just slip and slide right over that pedophilia incest and bestiality stuff, and the part about children being seducers…

A short excerpt from Unholy Communion, by Maureen Orth:

Of all the accusers I have spoken to, Ford has suffered the most severe damage. His parents explain that one part of his brain blocked out his rape memories, but at times they would begin to surface and another part of the brain would react violently to push them back down. The day his aunt brought the Globe’s article for his parents to read, Rodney Ford says, “I knew in my gut I had the missing piece of a puzzle…. I showed Greg the article … and said, ‘Do you remember this person?’ It was a couple of pictures of Shanley. He looked at them and went, ‘No.’” Then Greg’s mother got the photo album with pictures of Shanley giving Greg his first Communion. “He looked at the picture, put it down on the table, got up, and instantaneously collapsed to the floor crying,” says Rodney Ford. “I literally had to pick him up, and we held each other and hugged for 20 minutes, crying.”

Greg, like Paul Busa, was allegedly raped repeatedly by Shanley for six years. “The same M.O., the same pattern—torturing the kids physically as well as mentally,” says Rodney Ford. “’If you ever say anything, I’ll hurt your family, and no one will ever believe you.’ At six years old that’s a very impressionable thing on a kid’s mind, never mind physically abusing him. He just ultimately destroyed my son’s life.”

When he was no more than seven or eight years old, Greg began to mutilate himself and light fires. By the time he was in the seventh grade, teachers were telling his parents that his writings were violent and bizarre. The Fords are a close-knit, loving family, but the counselors who saw Greg said he was exhibiting classic signs of sex abuse, which naturally put the parents under suspicion. Today they even admit to having wondered about each other at times. “It was after Shanley left in the early 90s that my son had a complete breakdown,” says Rodney Ford. “He was in and out of 17 institutions and halfway houses.” He tried to commit suicide twice. “Greg tried to jump through a seven-foot window,” his father says. “He severed all the tendons in his hand.” In the second suicide attempt, says Rodney Ford, “he came at me with two knives in the backyard. He wanted the police to respond and see that he was holding a knife at me and shoot him so he wouldn’t have to go on.” “You just didn’t want to live anymore?,” I ask Greg Ford. “For how long?” “A long time,” he answers.

Recently I did a post about Guatemala, the violence there, the history, and linkages to the Catholic Church and US politicians, especially on the right, and sexual blackmail.

One of the organizations set up in Guatemala was Covenant House, founded by Father Bruce Ritter.

Background: Covenant House is a New York-based organization for teenage runaways founded by Franciscan Father Bruce Ritter in 1968.(3) Ritter began the organization to serve “streetwise” youths who could not obtain assistance from New York social service agencies. In 1977 Ritter and his cause caught the attention of business magnate and founder of AmeriCares, Robert Macauley. Macauley “adopted” Covenant House and recruited some of his influential friends, including former Treasury Secretary William Simon and J. Peter Grace to join the Covenant House board of directors.(3,35) Under the tutelage of Macauley and the board, Covenant House gathered influence and financial support from around the nation and expanded its operations.(3) It is now a multinational organization with 17 centers serving 25,000 youth in Canada, the United States, and Latin America.(3) Many of the Covenant House land acquisitions were financed by a $40 million loan from Charles Keating. Keating, a major figure in the savings and loan scandal and a devout Catholic, was chairman of Lincoln Savings and Loan.(12)

J. Peter Grace was once chairman of the Order of the Knights of Malta in the US.

One of the earliest members of the Western Goals Foundation and its principal espionage agent was Birch Society member, John Rees, whose Information Digest supplied information to the FBI, CIA, and the National Security Agency. Instrumental in obtaining Rees’ entrance to Western Goals was J. Peter Grace, who was also chairman of the Order of the Knights of Malta in the United States. President of W.R. Grace and Co. from 1945 until three years before his death in 1995, J. Peter Grace is profiled in Who’s Who in America which lists among his credentials: Bachelor of Arts from Yale University in 1936, Assistant Secretary at W. R. Grace (1936), President and CEO (1945), Newcomen Society, Council on Foreign Relations, Knights of Malta (American Chapter of the Board of Founders), Knights of Malta President, address: 1114 Avenue of the Americas.

Considering that the Newcomen Society and CFR to which J. Peter Grace belonged were branches of Cecil Rhodes’s eugenics club, The Round Table, it is not out of character that Grace would be involved in Project Paperclip – a post World War II CIA arrangement to remove classified information from dossiers so that former SS members and 900+ Nazi scientists could emigrate to the U. S. Hundreds of war criminals would find employment within government agencies and companies such as W.R. Grace chemical company. The Covert Action Information Bulletin documents the close relationship between Reinhard Gehlen, the CIA, the Knights of Malta and the Vatican (by now a Rothschild front), which had smuggled Nazi war criminals out of Europe through the infamous “rat lines”.

Yesterday’s post about the bestiality farm in Washington State links to an older post about organized crime.

And that post leads to this story from last year:

Authorities have identified a teenager believed to be suffering from amnesia who was found on the streets of New York two weeks ago. Police say a CNN viewer in Maryland identified the young woman, who mysteriously turned up in Manhattan two weeks ago, claiming to have no memory of her family, her home or even her own name….The girl was found in Midtown Manhattan around 12:30 a.m. October 9 outside the Covenant House youth shelter, although the organization said that she was not a resident at the time and did not appear as if she intended to seek refuge at the facility….According to its Web site, “Covenant House New York is the nation’s largest adolescent care agency serving homeless, runaway and at-risk youth.” Nearly 7,000 youths reportedly seek shelter there per year.

It’s not really possible to pack this all up in a little brown paper lunch sack for people, so that you can read for five or ten minutes and comprehend the scale of this problem. It’s not like that. You could spend all day reading the links in full just on this post, which barely scratches the surface. We’re just rock skipping here. Every single tentacle of this thing vectors into another hell on earth. All you can do is click on the links and read and try to understand how enormous this thing is. It just oozes from one place to the next.

and who taught them everything they know?

We hear a lot about the violence in Mexico. The violence in Guatemala is much worse. We don’t hear too much about Guatemala, however.

GUATEMALA CITY – Three brothers linked to extortion and armed robbery were killed by lynch mobs in two separate incidents in northwestern Guatemala, police said Thursday.

Jeronimo Aj Guarcas, 28, was beaten to death Tuesday by residents of the town of Semeja II who accused him of leading a gang that extorted protection payments from bus drivers. The following day, Mario and Miguel Aj Guarcas, ages 24 and 26, respectively, were caught in the act as they were robbing a bus. The vigilantes brought the two brothers to a soccer field in Semeja II, doused them with gasoline and set them on fire. At least 1,500 people in all took part in the lynchings, police said.

This week’s killings bring to 10 the number of alleged criminals slain by mobs in Guatemala so far this year. Forty accused wrongdoers died in 208 incidents of vigilante justice in Guatemala last year, according to official statistics, and the Central American nation has seen more than 300 fatal lynchings since 1996. The Mutual Support Group, a human rights organization, blames the lynchings on the failure of Guatemala’s institutions to “provide security and impart justice.”

Guatemalan authorities point to gangs and other organized-crime elements as the source of much of the violence in this country of roughly 13 million people, which recorded 6,475 homicides last year, an average of 18 murders per day. By comparison, 7,724 people were slain last year in neighboring Mexico, a nation of more than 100 million where rival drug cartels are waging war with each other and the security forces. All but 4 percent of Guatemalan murders go unpunished, the U.N.-sponsored International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala says.

That is a lot of violence. Who are the “other organized crime elements?”

Exiled Guatemalan coffee farmer Leocadio Juracan explains that an oligarchy exists in Guatemala, and the violence is not actually random. Violence frequently targets people who challenge the oligarchy.

“Guatemala is not a poor country,” he says. “There is a sector of society that is extremely rich, that has appropriated the wealth of the country and excluded the majority of the population.”

This “oligarchy” has a vested interest in business as usual, says Juracan. He dismisses the theory that threats and attacks against the CCDA are the work of common criminals, noting that they always take place immediately after the group takes any sort of public political stance – criticizing the government for lack of action on land reform, for example, an issue for which resolution is decades overdue; or condemning the murder of unionists. “We connect [the attacks against us] to political acts.”…It is perfectly plausible, according to Juracan, that his attackers would have connections to wartime paramilitary groups.

Gang-related violence has certain characteristics.

  • bodies are not usually mutilated or tortured
  • perpetrators almost always use guns
  • bodies are most often left in the place where the homicide occurred
  • gang members flee the crime scene quickly to avoid being apprehended
  • perpetrators usually lack the resources to move bodies without being seen or caught
  • motives are usually self-defense or revenge

Social cleansing and state-sponsored violence has different characteristics.

  • bodies are often heavily mutilated and tortured, strangled, cut up, beaten, bound
  • bodies are left in relatively public spaces, showing a high level of premeditation
  • the perpetrators have the money and protection to transport the body to a public place
  • motives are exterminating a specific social group, creating and/or reinforcing a culture of terror
  • terror is amplified and compounded by retelling and news reports
  • gangs are named as perpetrators, the culture of fear reinforced

Social cleansing and state-sponsored violence does not get investigated.

What may arguably be the strongest indication of the state’s role in the current violence is an absolute void of effective homicide investigations. Null or non-existent forensic investigations are a textbook indication of social cleansing. They allow for complete impunity, a heightened culture of terror, and increased powerlessness of victims’ family members, and more widely, civil society.

Selected commandments of the Talmud justifying violence toward non-Jews:

Hilkkoth Akum XI or Z1: “Do not save Goyim in danger of death.”
Hilkkoth Akum XI: “Show no mercy to the Goyim.”
Yebhamoth 11b: “Sexual intercourse with a little girl is permitted if she is of three years of age.”
Yebamoth 98a: “All gentile children are animals.”
Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348: “All property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which, consequently, is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples.”
Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 388: “It is permitted to kill a Jewish denunciator everywhere. It is permitted to kill him even before he denounces.”
Zohar I, 160a or 168a: “Jews must always try to deceive Christians.”
Zohar II, 4b: “The birth-rate of non-Jews has to be suppressed massively.”

We know the people who started this cycle of violence in Guatemala and keep it going to this day.

Jose Efraín Rios-Montt, former dictator of Guatemala (1982-3), and wholesale butcher of Mayan indians and the poor of his country, a proud graduate of the US “School of the Americas”—training installation for Third World tyrants. [(center, with family)] (source)
This is the same Rios-Montt mentioned in my post the other day, the particular contribution. A Wayne Madsen report linked him to certain US politicians.
WMR has learned that the GOP for a number of years has used pipelines like the House and Senate page systems, political indoctrination organizations like the College Republicans, juvenile “diversion programs,” and religious-connected political groups like to groom young men for the predatory sexual appetites of older male GOP members of Congress.

But it is not just young men who are groomed by the GOP predators. Republican Rep. Jerry Weller of Illinois, who is married to the daughter of Guatemalan ex-dictator (and fundamentalist Christian) Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, is rumored to have conducted an illicit affair with a 16-year old female page. This comes at a time when the United States and John Bolton, a supporter of Rios Montt, are attempting to sway the United Nations into electing Guatemala to the UN Security Council.

John Bolton, who supports Rios Montt, enjoys the support of organized Jewry.

In 2006, Jay Zeidman, “the influential 24-year old White House liaison to the Jewish community” started shaking the trees for John Bolton.

[Zeidman] is putting out the call to prominent American Jewish organizations to support John Bolton — with the arm-twisting innuendo that in this time of crisis in the Middle East, American Jews need to line up behind the guy Jesse Helms said “is the kind of man with whom I would want to stand at Armageddon, if it should be my lot to be on hand for what is forecast to be the final battle between good and evil in this world.”…Zeidman has sent the word out to numerous Jewish organizations asking “What can the White House expect in terms of supporting John Bolton?”

The young White House liaison to the Jewish community in 2006 had strong ties to Texas.

Zeidman is the son of prominent Greenberg Traurig attorney Fred S. Zeidman who is actively involved in leading Republican Jewish activities in Texas and is Vice Chairman of the Republican Jewish Coalition. A bio of Fred Zeidman reports these affiliations:

Mr. Zeidman is very active in community and political affairs in Texas and nationwide. He holds leadership positions in the Anti-Defamation League (Southwest Region), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the Republican Jewish Coalition, the Texas Inter-Faith Housing Corp., and the Houston Jewish Community Foundation. He is also Texas Chairman of the State of Israel Bonds and a member of the Board of Development Corporation of Israel. He formerly served as co-chairman of the finance committee of the Republican Party of Harris County, Texas, and formerly served on the finance committee of the Republican Party of Texas, and is a Ranger for the Bush Campaign. Mr. Zeidman previously served as Vice Chairman, Board of Regents at Texas Southern University. In addition, Mr. Zeidman was vice-chairman of the Dole/Kemp presidential campaign in Harris County and has been a key Jewish advisor to Republican congressional and senatorial delegations nationwide. Fred Zeidman graduated Washington University and received an MBA from New York University.

Texas is an important transit state for international trafficking rings.

Up in Illinois, Gerry (Jay) Weller, who supports his father-in-law Rios Montt, was a Republican serving in the US House of Representatives from 1995 to 2009. He left congress amid questions about his Nicaraguan land holdings; his wife’s investments, and the contributions of an indicted defense contractor. (wikipedia)

Plus don’t forget Weller came under pedophile rumors as mentioned in the Wayne Madsen report.

Down in Guatemala, Rios Montt’s brother, a Catholic bishop, was conveniently tasked with getting to the bottom of that terrible genocide against the Guatemalan people.

Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about General Efrain Rios Montt is his brother. In May 1998 Bishop Mario Rios Montt succeeded the assassinated Bishop Juan Gerardi as head of the Catholic Church’s human-rights office in Guatemala. His task is to continue Gerardi’s work, uncovering the truth behind the massacre or disappearance of upwards of 200,000 people during the prolonged and continuing ‘civil war’- more accurately described as attempted genocide - against the indigenous Mayan majority of the Guatemalan population. The person who, in the early 1985, presided over the most vicious single episode in this genocide was none other than the Bishop’s brother, the General.

At the same time that the Catholic Church set his brother in place as a bishop overseeing the cover-up, Rios Montt became an ordained minister of an authoritarian evangelical church siphoning people away from the Catholic Church.

In Guatemala, the Christian right was interested in converts by the end of 1982 reactionary Protestants had succeeded in recruiting 22 percent of the population to their theology of blind obedience and anti-communism. They were particularly hostile to Catholicism, especially “Liberation Theology,” which many of the Guatemalan military deemed responsible for the insurgency.

Right-wing Christian organizations seemed to be especially drawn to the harsh social control being exerted on the highland Mayans. During the Rios Montt period, foreign fundamentalists were permitted access to military operational zones, while Catholics were turned away-or attacked.

These evangelical organizations organized a lot of volunteers, aid, and programs for Guatemalan children.

Meanwhile, Rios Montt surrounded himself with advisers, both North American and Guatemalan, from his Verbo church, and what appeared to be a loose coalition of right-wing fundamentalist organizations, most notably Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network, began an extensive fundraising drive and also started sending volunteers to Ixil Triangle villages under military control. Rios Montt chose Love Lift International, the “relief arm” of Gospel Outreach, Verbo’s parent church, to carry the food and supplies purchased with the money raised. Verbo representatives, along with an older evangelical outfit, the Wycliffe Bible Translators (WBT/SIL, the latter initials for the Summer Institute of Linguistics, an organization whose CIA connections are long and impeccable and which has often been charged with involvement in massacres of indigenous peoples throughout the Americas), arranged with the government “to take charge of all medical work in the Ixil Triangle, and for all education in Indian areas up to the third grade to be taught in Indian languages with WBT/SIL assistance,” through the Behrhorst Clinic. WBT/SIL and the Clinic’s parent, the Behrhorst Foundation, incorporated with Verbo Church into the Foundation for Aid to the Indian People (FUNDAPI), whose stated purpose was to channel international Christian donations to refugees and which coordinated volunteers from U.S. right-wing religious organizations.

One person who volunteered in these evangelical organizations writes on a message board:

I worked for New Life Service Co. in New York City for several years (GO church business) in the early 80’s…. the whole time I was told (and believed) that I was doing God’s work and supporting the ministry and was told that much of the money earned went to support the efforts in Guatemala to feed the poor and build houses (International Love Lift). 100% of my income went into the church, I was just given basic necesities to live + $10 a week (shared room & meals).

It was soon after the Rios Montt episode that Gospel Outreach began to fall apart and break apart from the inside. It’s hard to say what really happened (the trigger), but it was certainly not good. It was discovered that the head elder in charge of finances in GO NYC was using much of the church funds to build his own business. The Durkin GO church seems to have enabled all of this….(http://www.factnet.org/discus/messages/3/4850.html?1104203535)… seems the GO ministry was enablers of counterfeit Christians.

The society of normal people greatly outnumbers the satanic “elite.” That’s why well-intentioned people must be tricked or coerced into doing things that they would otherwise not do.

^^^^^^^

As discussed the other day, these evangelical groups have the hallmarks of state-sponsored covert genocide:

The markers of ‘quiet’ and covert genocide are,
1. isolation or the target group’s children in separate schools, and orphanages in general.
2. harmful medical ‘treatment’ under cover of state clinics.

The things done in Guatemala absolutely qualify as satanic.

“According to Amnesty International, in just four months there were more than 2,000 fully documented extrajudicial killings by the Guatemalan army: ‘People of all ages were not only shot, they were burned alive, hacked to death, disembowelled, drowned, beheaded. Small children were smashed against rocks or bayoneted to death.’ The Catholic bishops said: ‘Never in our national history has it come to such extremes.’ US President Ronald Reagan, visiting Guatemala on a swing through Latin America, hailed Rios Montt as ‘totally dedicated to democracy’”

The Talmud says what it says about killing non-Jews.

And sure enough, who was down there helping out but the Israelis.

The history of Israel’s relations with Guatemala roughly parallels that of its ties with El Salvador except the Guatemalan military was so unswervingly bloody that Congress never permitted the … Reagan Administration to undo the military aid cutoff implemented during the Carter years. Weaponry for the Guatemalan military is the very least of what Israel has delivered. Israel not only provided the technology necessary for a reign of terror, it helped in the organization and commission of the horrors perpetrated by the Guatemalan military and police. And even beyond that: to ensure that the profitable relationship would continue, Israel and its agents worked actively to maintain Israeli influence in Guatemala.

Among the many points made in the article (http://www.akha.org/content/missiondocuments/verbovillagesriosmontt.html):

  • Israel began selling Guatemala weapons in 1974 and since then is known to have delivered 17 Arava aircraft.
  • Among the other weapons sold by Israel were 10 RBY armored personnel carriers, three Dabur class patrol boats armed with Gabriel missiles, light cannons, machine guns and at least 15,000 Galil assault rifles.
  • Guatemalan business leaders reportedly pumped large illegal contributions into the Reagan campaign coffers. Their tentacles reached right into the core of the new administration through the lobbying activities of the Hannaford-Deaver law firm of White House troika member Michael Deaver.
  • Congress, however, did not change its attitude about Guatemala, and as late as 1985 remained adamant about denying it military aid. In 1981, Reagan’s Secretary of State Alexander Haig “urged Israel to help Guatemala.” In July 1985 Israel helped the administration move a shipment of 40 assault rifles with advanced night sights and 1,000 grenade launchers from Israel to Guatemala on a KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines) flight.
  • The following year the factory began manufacturing entire Galil rifles under license from Israel.
  • The EGP said in 1983 that there were 300 Israeli advisers in Guatemala, working “in the security structures and in the army.” Other reports were less specific as to numbers, but suggested that these Israeli advisers, “some official, others private,” performed a variety of functions.
  • Israeli noncommissioned officers were also said to have been hired by big landowners to train their private security details.
  • In 1979, the Guatemalan interior minister paid a “secret and confidential” visit to Israel, where he met with the manufacturers of “sophisticated police equipment.” In March of the following year Interior Minister Donaldo Alvarez Ruiz was in Israel to conclude an agreement for police training.
  • According to a senior Guatemalan army official, the complex contains “an archive and computer file on journalists, students, leaders, people of the left, politicians, and so on. ” This material is combined with current intelligence reports and mulled over during weekly sessions.
  • One of the most oppressive features of Guatemala’s pacification program is the “civilian self-defense patrols” whose ranks are filled by coercion, with most joining out of fear of being called subversive, and thus marked for torture or execution.

Basically, Israel exported everything they have been perfecting on the Palestinians into Guatemala, with the ongoing assistance of various elements in the US government, religious organizations, and corporations, and sustained over a period of decades. The result, unsurprisingly, is a country absolutely devastated by violence.

It is no accident that the Guatemalans looked to the Israelis for assistance in organizing their campaign against the Indians, and having followed their mentors’ advice, wound up with something that looks quite a bit like the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza strip. As the Israelis wrecked the local economy and turned the occupied territories into a captive market and a cheap labor pool, the Guatemalan military has made economic activity in the occupied highlands all but impossible.

As it is openly acknowledged in the Israeli media that the Palestinian population must not be allowed to exceed the Jewish population, it is common knowledge that the Guatemalan military would like to reduce the Mayan population to a minority.

But most of all there is the unyielding violence of the suppression. The occupation regime Israel has maintained since 1967 over the Palestinians (and its occupation of the Syrian Golan Heights, the Egyptian Sinai and Southern Lebanon) has trained “an entire generation of Israelis…to impose Israeli rule over subject peoples.” “The Israeli soldier is a model and an example to us,” Gen. Benedicto Lucas said in 1981.

How does one call it anything but satanic?

beautiful people rule the world

A math whiz discovers that Madoff’s returns are literally impossible in 1999. He tries to blow the whistle to the SEC in 2001, but he’s just too nerdy for anyone to give him the time of day. He contacted journalists and politicians. Even now, after being vindicated, the kewl kids still can’t find anything nice to say about him.

Harry Markopolos, the man who tried for years to blow the whistle on mega-fraudster Bernie Madoff, has published a book about his 10-year crusade to unmask the financier’s Ponzi scheme. The appropriately-titled No one would Listen tells how Markopolos first surmised the incredible truth - that the well-known and respected Madoff had been carrying out the biggest fraud of all time for decades - as far back as 1999. Markopolos is an almost-comic figure: a voluble, self-confessed maths nerd who for many years, while he struggled to have Madoff denounced, looked under his car every morning in case it was booby-trapped and carried a Smith & Wesson revolver.

…Markopolos was a ‘quantitative financial specialist’ for a Boston firm when, in the late 1990s, he was asked to work out a way to produce the same spectacular – and remarkably consistent - returns as Madoff. It took him only a few months to come to the utterly logical deduction that Madoff’s results seemed impossible because they were impossible.
Another factor [in his being ignored - ed.] may have been Markoplos’s personality. While some in the US have hailed him a hero, he has also been painted as an obsessive and a self-publicist. Last month, John Coffee, securities law professor at Columbia Law School told the Wall Street Journal Markopolos was “an emotionally unstable idiot savant”, adding: “He was right but that does not mean he will be right again.”

But Markopolos has earned many fans: it has been proposed he should become the new head of the SEC, the organisation which resisted his approaches for so long. The Wall Street Journal, which sat on a dossier about Madoff provide by Markopolos for two years without using it, recently dismissed this idea with more than a trace of hauteur: “This is a crazy idea for a lot of reasons.”

In the UK, a shopowner is pinned down and her shop cleaned out stock worth £30,000, by bailiffs, over a  debt of £193. She calls the police but they help the bailiffs and shake hands when it’s over.

Today, a News of the World investigation reveals that Britain’s bailiff industry - long criticised for its practices - is hitting struggling small businesses harder than ever before.
We can reveal some bailiffs have:

DOUBLED the charges they levy to up to £1,000 for a single visit;
BUMPED UP fees with unexplained charges;
And STRIPPED victims of goods worth far more than they owe, even CLEARING OUT entire homes or stores.

Yet while complaints against them have soared, the Government has failed to act. Campaigners claim that’s because the vast majority of bailiffs’ work is collecting debts for the Government - through arrears on such as council tax, business rate, and child maintenance. Consumer groups are being bombarded with claims of rogue bailiffs threatening victims, tricking their way into their home or premises, and forcing them to hand over huge sums.

Rina admits she fell into debt, running up a £626.55 advertising bill. She says a court reduced that by £350, and let her pay at £50 a month. She fell behind but believed she owed just £193 when bailiffs arrived demanding £1,800. A string of extra charges were added to the bill - as is legally allowed - including judgment costs of £497, execution costs of £101.75, and officers’ fees of £769.42.

One of the comments: “She owed the money and didnt pay it. She got everything she deserved.” Various other people made comments vehemently defending the bailiffs, justifying the egregious behavior because they believe that people who fall into debt are slackers who maliciously create a burden on everyone else.

In Sweden, a 14 year old girl accused a boy of raping her in the school bathroom. People began to question the girl’s account, but the boy confessed and physical evidence backed her up. Still the town persisted in a campaign against the girl, literally hounding her and her family out of town.

Despite the clear convictions passed down by the courts, the campaign against Linnea continued with pupils at the school even going out on strike in support of the popular boy. SVT reported that Oskar’s brother began to maintain a blog on the case and almost 2,000 signed a petition to have the conviction overturned. Bjästa is home to 1,800 people. Oskar’s mother launched a further Facebook group to argue for Linnea’s ‘guilt’, soon attracting 4,000 members, many of whom arguing that the 14-year-old should be ashamed of herself.

But despite the fact that Linnea’s story remained consistent throughout, was identical to Oskar’s confession, and despite the upheld conviction, the rumours persisted at the school and in the community. The situation ultimately became unsustainable for Linnea and her family, and she was forced to move 500 kilometres to a new school, a long way from the Örnsköldsvik community that she had grown up in.

Furthermore when the end of the school term arrived, three months later, Oskar was allowed to attend an awards ceremony in the local church service with the consent of the pastor, despite no longer attending Bjälsta school, and despite having a restraining order against him to stay away from Linnea. The service ended in a vocal public demonstration in support of the 15-year-old. Film footage from the service posted by Oskar’s mother on the internet, broadcast in the SVT programme, showed him passing out flowers to his former schoolmates and receiving applause and hugs in return.

The film was used as part of the campaign orchestrated by the boy’s family to “free Oskar”, SVT reports.

…Later that day, Oskar joined up with the his schoolmates to celebrate the end of term at a nearby beach. During the evening the boy raped a further 17-year-old girl, Jennifer.

…But support for Oskar remained strong in the Bjästa community despite the second rape conviction.

The campaign continued with Jennifer now taking Linnea’s place at the centre of the community’s ire and suspicions. Comments on the Facebook page, blog and other internet sites, which had collected 4,000 members, became more and more accusatory against the girls.

Many of the comments and threats directed at the girls were made openly by people unconcerned with hiding their identities, according to SVT.

The programme reported that not one single adult at Bjästa school took a stand against either Oskar or the campaign or rumours that spread around the small community - neither before nor after the court convictions.

Petty. Vicious. Cowardly.

Evil is a point of view. ~ Anne Rice

truth has a way of coming out

1. Peter Moore, consultant who was kidnapped allegedly by Iran, believes he was always in IRAQ.

Peter Moore, the British IT consultant kidnapped on May 29, 2007 in Iraq and held hostage for three years by Shia extremists, has spoken about his ordeal. In the first interview about his time in captivity, Moore says he was held in Basra - not in Iran, as many reports had claimed - and denies there was any significant Iranian link to the group beyond some covert funding.

The 36-year-old, who was finally released on December 30 last year, told the Times today that he had suffered torture including being hung by his arms from a door, dousings with water and mock executions. Bizarrely, later in his captivity he played ping-pong with one of the men holding him.

To conquer the boredom of being held with only a television for company, Moore says he counted dots on curtains, invented an imaginary tube map on the wall and indulged in fantasies about motorcycling. “I would pretend that I wasn’t there. I pretended I was in a bike shop negotiating which motorbike to buy,” he told the paper. He also invented a wife to try to win the sympathy of his guards – a Brazilian malaria doctor he began almost to believe in himself – and pretended to be Catholic.

US military intelligence has asserted that the captured men – Moore was taken with four security guards, all subsequently executed – did spend some time in Iran.

It was also alleged they had been taken there within 24 hours of capture and held there throughout. But Moore was only willing to concede that he might briefly have crossed into Iran and out again. He told the Times: “We could hear a train and there were loads of mortars going off around us, loads of explosions. It definitely wasn’t Iran.”

Moore believes he was held for most of his captivity in Basra, but also spent time in Baghdad, Hilla and Karbala – all cities in Iraq. He also dismisses the suggestion the kidnap was orchestrated by Iran’s Republican Guard, insisting the kidnappers – a group calling themselves the League of the Righteous - were “Iraqi resistance” with “representation” in Iraq’s government.

According to the Times, Moore is remarkably collected for somebody who has suffered such an ordeal. He plans to visit friends in Guyana and then take a motorbike tour of New Zealand.

2. body found under the patio of Kray friend after tip-off

A MAN’S body has been found buried in the back garden of a house belonging to an ex-convict with links to the Kray twins.

Wrapped in rotting carpet, the corpse was excavated from under the patio of the terraced home. The owner of the house, who is now dying of cancer, has been arrested.

Police began the grisly search after a tip-off that a murder victim had lain under earth and concrete for at least 15 years.

Digging went on for two days before the body was located. Excavations are likely to continue for some days as police search for more clues. Scotland Yard traced the owner of the property in Alderville Road, Fulham, west London, to a hospice where he is terminally ill with cancer. Roy Heath, 52, was questioned over allegations that he had the man killed over a property deal that went wrong.

Heath, who has a record for violence, is said to have struck up a friendship with gangland boss Reggie Kray while they were serving time in the same prison. He was arrested and bailed on Tuesday at the hospice in Lambeth, south London.

It is understood he has just weeks or even days to live.

Two other men, aged 47 and 52, were arrested on Wednesday in connection with the find. They were still in custody last night.

Police have yet to establish the identity of the body, said to be that of a “very small man”.

Detective Inspector Tim Dobson said: “It is believed that the body may have been at the scene between 15 and 20 years. Whilst inquiries are underway to establish the identity of this person, we are keen to speak to anyone who may have lived in this road around that time.”

3. the Kray twins — plugged in organized UK crime bosses from the 50s and 60s

Reginald “Reggie” Kray (24 October 1933 – 1 October 2000) and his twin brother Ronald “Ronnie” Kray (died 17 March 1995) were the foremost perpetrators of organised crime in London’s East End during the 1950s and 1960s. Ronald, commonly referred to as Ron or Ronnie, suffered from paranoid schizophrenia. The Krays were involved in armed robberies, arson, protection rackets, violent assaults including torture and the murders of Jack “The Hat” McVitie and George Cornell. As West End nightclub owners they mixed with prominent entertainers including Diana Dors, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and politicians, The Krays were highly respected. In the 1960s they became celebrities in their own right, being photographed by David Bailey and interviewed on television.

They were arrested on 9 May 1968 and convicted in 1969 by the efforts of a squad of detectives led by Detective Superintendent Leonard “Nipper” Read, and were both sentenced to life imprisonment.

Ronnie remained in prison until his death on 17 March 1995, but Reggie was released from prison on compassionate grounds in August 2000, a few weeks before his death from cancer.

…[The Krays also came into the public eye when an exposé in the tabloid newspaper Sunday Mirror alleged that Ron had had a sexual relationship with Lord Boothby, a UK Conservative Party politician. Although no names were printed, Boothby threatened to sue, the newspaper backed down, sacked its editor, apologised, and paid Boothby £40,000 in an out of court settlement. As a result, other newspapers were less willing to uncover the Krays’ connections and criminal activities.

The police investigated the Krays on several occasions, but the twins’ reputation for violence meant witnesses were afraid to come forward to testify. There was also a political problem for both main parties. It was neither in the interests of the Conservative Party to press the police to end the Krays’ power lest the Boothby connection was again publicised and demonstrated, or those of the Labour Party because their MP Tom Driberg was also rumoured to have had a relationship with Ronnie.

4. another one: ‘American Fritzl’ Aswad Ayinde ‘directed Fugees video’

51-year-old man from New Jersey is in court today accused of repeatedly raping his five daughters and fathering six children by them in a case with disturbing echoes of the crimes of the incestuous British rapist Adult R - and those of Joseph Fritzl in Austria.

Despite concerns that his victims could suffer if he is named publicly, at least one US newspaper has identified the man as Aswad Ayinde, saying he is the award-winning director of the Fugees video Killing Me Softly.

Prosecutors told New Jersey’s Superior Court yesterday that 51-year-old Ayinde, also known as Eric McGill, is a “depraved” man with a “Messianic complex”. His ex-wife Beverley said yesterday that he had impregnated his daughters in an attempt to keep his bloodline ‘pure’.

“He said the world was going to end, and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen,” she told the court.

The abuse is alleged to have begun in the mid 1980s and continued until 2002 when Beverley Ayinde finally left her husband. During that time Ayinde is alleged to have beaten his children with wooden boards and kicked them with steel-toed boots. Moving house frequently to avoid the attentions of the authorities – on one occasion going to Florida - he repeatedly raped his children.

Three of Ayinde’s daughters became pregnant, and Beverley Ayinde told the court some of the resulting six babies were delivered at home and never received birth certificates. In at least two instances children died at home and were buried without the authorities being informed. The surviving children were schooled at home and denied contact with the outside world.

On one occasion Beverley herself miscarried twins after her husband forced her to carry a dead great dane wrapped in a carpet for burial.

In a calm voice yesterday, Beverley Ayinde said she did not report her then husband to police for fear of incurring beatings. “I was afraid to ever accuse him of being demented, or being a paedophile. I knew the word but I wouldn’t dare use it because it would result in a beating,” she said. The judge is expected to rule today on the admissibility of her evidence.

Many of the rapes and assaults are alleged to have been carried out when the family was squatting in a disused mortuary. Beverley Ayinde says her then husband renovated one room for himself but forced his family to live in the dilapidated main part of the building.

Where the parallels between Aswad Ayinde and the recently-sentenced British man Adult R end is in the lack of anonymity. The UK courts have forbidden the identification of Adult R in order to protect his family from public disclosure, but no such protection has been granted to Ayinde in the US.

However, the news agency Associated Press made its own decision not to name Ayinde. It said: “The Associated Press generally doesn’t identify victims of sexual crimes and is not reporting the names of the husband and wife to protect the identities of their children, now all over 18 years of age.”

Some US newspapers have respected this decision. Ayinde was first arrested as long ago as 2006, and has appeared in court earlier this month – but the New York Times has not disclosed his identity. The New York Daily News has had no such qualms, however. It names him, and goes further – identifying him as the director of the Fugees video which won an MTV award in 1996.

The ultra-tabloid New York Post does not name Ayinde, while overseas the London Times does identify him – both papers are owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News International. The First Post has decided to name Ayinde as his identity is now widely known across the internet.

5. UK man harassed to death by punks

Police forces were warned by the Chief Inspector of Constabulary yesterday that they were failing to tackle the toll of anti-social behaviour on communities across the country.

As Denis O’Connor was speaking, reports began to emerge of a man with a mental age of 10 who had been “tormented to death” by youths who harassed him for more than a decade.

David Askew, 64, collapsed and died outside his house minutes after CCTV cameras recorded two teenagers approaching the house.

Last night, Greater Manchester police confirmed that an 18-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter over Mr Askew’s death. Earlier police had confirmed that they had referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission after allegations from Mr Askew’s neighbours.

Police insisted they had done everything possible to support Mr Askew, his wheelchair-bound mother, Rose, and brother Brian. They had been to the property in Hattersley, Greater Manchester, 10 times in the last year after reports of anti-social behaviour. One youth – currently in prison – has an ASBO for harassing the family.

But neighbours insisted too little had been done. One said Mr Askew’s ordeal had been “like bear-baiting”. Another, Hazel Holley, 64, said: “The police did nothing. If you see two policemen on this estate you say snap. The only time recently I have seen a police car round here was today – when the man was already dead.”

a culture of ‘having a quiet word’

Please note the professionals involved in the Holly Grieg case: police, social workers, doctors, etc.

‘Some of the details are just heart-rending. Of course the question is how on earth did something like this happen without someone noticing?’ - Nick Clegg
Oh sorry, that’s regarding a DIFFERENT appalling abuse scandal, which broke in November 2008.
clean cut, nice clothes, enjoying a drought beer at the pub
no doubt having a laugh about his daughters who keep getting pregnant
no doubt failing to mention that he rapes them every day

A staggering 150 chances were squandered to save two sisters kept as sex slaves by their father. He made them pregnant 19 times  -  under the noses of social workers and other professionals who failed to halt the abuse for 28 years.

The man’s sister-in-law last night claimed that he carried out the horrific abuse to milk the child support system. She accused the jobless 56-year-old of skimming thousands from the state by taking for himself the benefit money paid for the youngsters  -  currently worth £31.25 a week per child.

Points made:

  • Nine babies born, seven survive.
  • Two babies died at birth.
  • Ten miscarriages and abortions between the sisters.
  • NO DOCTORS, NURSES or SOCIAL WORKERS launched an investigation to these pregnancies.

But whenever they were asked about their injuries or the father of their children, the terrified women denied everything in fear their children would be taken away.

What health care and/or mental health professional could possibly predict that abuse victims would deny the abuse and protect their abuser, and especially so in order to protect their own innocent babies?

ARE HEALTH CARE AND/OR MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND/OR SOCIAL WORKERS EXPECTED TO KNOW SUCH THINGS, SUCH ARCANE KNOWLEDGE?

Police believe the sisters, whose mother fled the home when they were young, were raped hundreds of times. The domineering father, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, admitted 25 rapes and four indecent assaults at a hearing last month.

Mr Clegg said he wanted to know what medical professionals, social workers and schools had been doing over the last 20 years. Yesterday, Sheffield social services refused to answer key questions, hiding behind the announcement that an independent Serious Case Review has been set up to find out what went wrong. Lincolnshire County Council’s director of children’s services, Peter Duxbury, expressed ’sincere sympathy’ to the victims but insisted: ‘Since these events took place, thankfully our child protection systems have improved a great deal. ‘Significant improvements have been made to ensure the safety of children in Lincolnshire.’

Oh really?

More on this sociopath rapist here, if you can stand it.

^^^^^^^

Now to answer the question, how did he get away with it?

Some people say that the authorities get duped and tend to “look the other way.”

Loathe to criticise  -  still less to interfere with  -  the lives of fractured and failing underclass families, the official bodies charged with protecting the most vulnerable in our society simply looked the other way….The point is clear: time and again those who should have been in a position to stop this abuse looked the other way, or sat on their hands. Why? Because they refused to contemplate the unpalatable, politically incorrect truth  -  that some families are not just ’struggling to cope in challenging circumstances’, to borrow PC parlance, but are harbouring true evil in their midst.

Do you have it? These social workers and doctors and police officers are just fine regular people, just like yourself, and they’ve been duped by these loathsome criminals, and they ‘looked the other way’ for twenty-eight years, over a hundred different authorities, because… well hey, you know what they call it, right?

HUMAN ERROR.

YES IT’S REGRETTABLE, BUT THEN AGAIN, WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED?

^^^^^^^

Today the authorities APOLOGIZE for their TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS of, REGRETTABLY, LOOKING THE OTHER WAY.

Chris Cook, the independent chair of the Lincolnshire safeguarding children board, said: “We are genuinely sorry. We should have protected you. This is a tragic and complicated case. The man responsible, who intimidated and frightened his family, was convicted of multiple counts of rape and is serving a life sentence.”

Sue Fiennes, the independent chair of the Sheffield safeguarding children board, said: “We want to apologise to the family at the heart of this case. It will be clear that we failed this family. This report will not make comfortable reading for any of the organisations concerned with the family. Lessons are being learned by the agencies involved.”

The 39-page executive summary of the serious case review, written by Professor Pat Cantrill and spanning 35 years, found numerous opportunities to intervene “were missed individually and collectively”. Cantrill said a culture of “having a quiet word” contributed to failures to help the family.

“We have got to learn from these serious case reviews,” she added. “You are aware, as I am aware, that there are a number of these serious case reviews that happen, and we always don’t seem to learn from them. It only really needed one person with tenacity to keep pushing this and pushing this, and we might have had a much earlier recognition and action being taken.”

The review made 128 recommendations for improving understanding, practice, procedures and training into intra-familial abuse, including eight national recommendations. It also recommended improvements in sharing information, record-keeping and support for professionals. All the recommendations have been implemented or are being implemented.

Oh goody. I’m sure all that record-sharing will keep the children safe now.

Details of the 39 page report, which reviewed the twenty-eight years of missed opportunities, include:

  • 12 reported disclosures of physical abuse
  • 7 allegations regarding sexual abuse from family members
  • 16 child protection conferences and strategy meetings
  • the family moved 67 times
  • professionals admitting being “afraid” of the father
  • the girls had extended absences from school due to their injuries and pregnancies

This man took pleasure in abusing his daughters. He beat them, puched, kicked and threw them around, he held them next to gas flames when they resisted, burning their eyes. He paraded them around in public, taking them into the pub with him and giving them alcohol, and treating them like his wives. He threatened they would lose their babies if they told.

A clear cut sociopath.

^^^^^^^

So, WHY AGAIN did everyone miss this for twenty-eight years? Supposedly, the excuse is, that he’s a clever bloke who managed to fool a lot of people, even trained authorities. Everyone is so gullible, see? Even trained authorities, who should know all about abusers and sociopaths and victims and how they work the system. But since they are all just nice human beings, just like you and me, and they’re a little gullible too, just like you and me, and sometimes they just looked the other way. Hey you’d probably do the same thing, right? Who are we to judge, right?

The alternative explanation being that they knew, and they just didn’t give a shit, or if they did try to stop him because they did give a shit, there was always someone higher up the food chain who just didn’t give a shit. And there was nothing they could do, see? Because of the corruption. People in a position to do something just don’t care. So nothing happened for twenty-eight years, except that these two girls and their brother lived through hell and had their lives and innocence and psyches utterly ransacked.

But the father… his identity is protected.

And in his jail cell, he shows no remorse. Perhaps the guards even bring him sugary cakes for dessert.

And the authorities make their apologies and implement their recommendations and we all go on to the next story.

Sociopaths know that it’s SO EASY to get away with this stuff.

All they have to do is conduct a review, make an apology, and implement a few recommendations.

And people will accept that. Because these authorities… we know that they are just human beings, and we all make mistakes. And we want to be given the same benefit of the doubt should anything go wrong for us.

Sociopaths will use this maneuver over and over and over again, on matters large and small. They know EXACTLY how human beings think.

I strongly recommend, I beg actually, that my fellow human beings stop being so gullible.

The Psychopath - The Mask of Sanity

Imagine - if you can - not having a conscience, none at all, no feelings of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members. Imagine no struggles with shame, not a single one in your whole life, no matter what kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action you had taken.

And pretend that the concept of responsibility is unknown to you, except as a burden others seem to accept without question, like gullible fools.

Now add to this strange fantasy the ability to conceal from other people that your psychological makeup is radically different from theirs. Since everyone simply assumes that conscience is universal among human beings, hiding the fact that you are conscience-free is nearly effortless.

You are not held back from any of your desires by guilt or shame, and you are never confronted by others for your cold-bloodedness. The ice water in your veins is so bizarre, so completely outside of their personal experience, that they seldom even guess at your condition.

In other words, you are completely free of internal restraints, and your unhampered liberty to do just as you please, with no pangs of conscience, is conveniently invisible to the world.

You can do anything at all, and still your strange advantage over the majority of people, who are kept in line by their consciences will most likely remain undiscovered.

Or Not.
