The Pedophocracy is a hypothesized global kidnapping and child molestation ring powerful enough to control governments by blackmailing key officials.

US Edit

Dr. Greenbaum Edit

In 1992 D. Corydon Hammond alleged the existence of CIA mind-control experiments after World War II led by a Satanic cult of followers of Aleister Crowley. The alleged experiments included physical and psychological torture, including the sexual abuse of children, with the goal of inducing multiple personality disorder. [1]

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 sytematicness 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.

One of the leaders of these experiments was a Dr. Greenbaum, known also as Dr. Green or Greene, creator of techniques known as "Green Programming", "Ultra Green", "Green Tree', and the "Green Bomb". He was said to be a Jewish holocaust survivor who had assisted in Nazi experiments in the concentration camps and incorporated elements Kabbalah into the group's cult mythology.

Carol Rutz, who claims to have been a survivor of these experiments, identifies Greenbaum as Joseph Mengele. [2]

These experiments are alleged to have been conducted under Project BLUEBIRD, Project ARTICHOKE, and Project MKUltra.

Robert Gray Edit

Robert Keith Gray of Hill and Knowlton "was reportedly a specialist in homosexual blackmail operations for the CIA." He and his firm "have been implicated in the BCCI scandal, the October Surprise, the House page sex and drug scandal, Debategate, Koreagate, and Iran-Contra." [3] Template:Cn

Jerry Sandusky Edit

Pedophile ring claims Edit

Greg Bucceroni claims to have been a child prostitute from 1977 to 1980 for a pedophile ring that included Jerry Sandusky, Ed Savitz, Poly Prep football coach Phil Foglietta, and Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward, [4] and to have then been "a mob associate with the Gambino crime family" from 1980 to 1982. [5]

US Army day care centers Edit

Presidio 1982 Edit

In 1982, an investigation into John Gunnarson's management of the day care center at the US Army's Presidio base in San Francisco, California turned up allegations of the sexual assault of children. Military policeman Ed Albanoski, chief of juvenile investigations at the Presidio, was ordered by his superiors to stop the investigation. [6]

West Point Edit

In 1984, a three-year-old girl was raped by a teacher at the West Point day care center. Other children reported "satanic acts, animal sacrifices and cult-like behavior among the abusers, whose activities extended beyond the U.S. Military Academy borders to Orange County and a military base in San Francisco, parents charged." An investigation by Rudolph Giuliani ended with no charges filed. [7]

Presidio 1986 Edit

Beginning in 1986, between 30 to 60 children at the Presidio day care center reported that they were being molested. [8] [6] The case was closed without any prosecutions. [9] [10]

Those accused included:

  • Gary Willard Hambright, former Southern Baptist minister active in youth groups in Yakima, Washington. Hambright died of AIDS in 1990. [10]
  • Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, founder of the Temple of Set, an offshoot of the Church of Satan, "was being investigated by San Francisco police in connection with the case" [9] and some of the children were able to describe his home in detail. [11]
  • John Gunnarson - head of child care services at the Presidio, disciplined for allowing two field trips without parental authorization.

The US Attorney responsible for closing the case was Joseph Russoniello, who had helped the CIA cover up its cocaine trafficking in San Francsico during the Iran-Contra affair. [12]

Other cases Edit

The Army ran an investigation of 300 child care centers and found accusations of sexual assault at more than ten percent of them between 1984 and 1987. [8]

McMartin Preschool Edit

Southern California, early 1980s, alleged satanic abuse, possible involvement of Aquino. Investigated by Ted Gunderson.

McGowan, citing Michael Newton, alleges that 80% of children examined by the Children’s Institute International showed physical evidence of molestation. [7]

Witness deaths Edit

  • Robert Winkler - identified by children as "The Wolfman." Died of a drug overdose the day before his trial.
  • Judy Johnson - "the first McMartin parent to lodge a complaint". Died at her home before her testimony.
  • Paul Bynum - private investigator hired by the parents. Shot to death the evening before he was to testify. Ruled a suicide.

The Franklin Scandal Edit

On June 29, 1989, the Washington Times reported: [13]

A homosexual prostitution ring is under investigation by federal and District authorities and includes among its clients key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, congressional aides, and U.S. and foreign businessmen with close social ties to Washington's political elite, documents obtained by The Washington Times revealed.

The scandal was quickly hushed up. One of the accusers, Alisha Owen, was convicted of perjury for her testimony implicating Omaha police chief Robert Wadman.

Lead investigator Gary Caradori died when his airplane exploded in midair over Aurora, Illinois. Before launching, Caradori had telephoned to report that he was carrying important evidence. The initial investigation into the crash was handled by local police chief Robert Wadman, formerly of Omaha. Template:Cn

When nurses came to check on him early next morning, Boner was sitting in a chair, bleeding from the mouth and quite dead. [18]

Rusty Nelson would claim that "about 23 children who attended those parties are now dead." Template:Cn

CIA suppression of investigations Edit

False Memory Syndrome Foundation Edit

The False Memory Syndrome Foundation provided expert testimony to defendants to debunk allegations of satanic ritual abuse during the 1980s. Its members were exposed as CIA operatives and accused pedophiles in the early 1990s. Template:Cn From an unknown author's summary of Alex Constantine's reporting: [19] [20]

  • EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS: Peter and Pamela Freyd (psychiatrists) The Freyds were publicly exposed by their own daughter – Jennifer Freyd (professor of psychology) of child abuse and rape.
  • FOUNDER: Ralph Underwager (psychiatrist) - The world’s foremost authority on false memory, but in the courtroom – is repeatedly exposed as a charlatan. He is a self confessed paedophile who quotes: It is "God’s Will" adults engage in sex with children.

The Finders Edit

CIA-linked cult, alleged to be a kidnapping ring. Template:Cn

Evansville Edit

In 1990, nine children in Evansville, Indiana claimed to have been involved in satanic ritual abuse led by a school administrator. [22]


Jack R Payton, Oct 8, 1992, Latest revelations about the BCCI scandal are mind-boggling:

This thing was so far-reaching, so diabolical, it seemed certain to make Watergate look like the third-rate burglary some Republicans claimed it was.

Well I've just finished slogging through a 794-page government report on the scandal, and believe me it's even worse than I thought. Much worse.

Consider, for a moment, what it might mean to have an organization that could pull off the following:

  • Manipulate the Central Intelligence Agency and the spy agencies of Britain, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, China, Syria, Israel and who knows how many others all at the same time...;
  • Help Pakistan buy nuclear technology on the international black market...;
  • Launder drug money for the Medellin cocaine cartel in Colombia;
  • Bankroll Abu Nidal, the most notorious terrorist in the world;
  • Handle Manuel Noriega's finances in Panama;
  • Procure prostitutes, some of them children, for traveling Middle Eastern potentates;
  • Rig international commodity markets so that a few insiders could make hundreds of millions of dollars in a single day...


Jeffrey Epstein Edit

Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an under-age girl for prostitution. Dozens of other girls had accused him, but their testimony was not considered reliable. One of his accusers, Virgia Roberts, alleged that Epstein had introduced her to Prince Andrew of the UK on three occasions. Roberts claimed that she had been hired for Epstein by Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of Mirror publisher Robert Maxwell. [23]

Georgia DFCS Edit

Former Georgia State Senator Nancy Schaefer and her husband were shot to death in 2010 while Schaefer was investigating allegations of a child sex trafficking ring inside the Georgia Department of Family and Child Services. [24]

Destin, Florida 2010 Edit

According to John Caylor: [25]

It has been made known to me by inside sources at the F.B.I. that the bureau has been conducting a pedophile investigation of the federal and state court system in Alabama for about 3 years. In 2011 they arrested a Baldwin County Juvy judge in Bay Minette. The investigation traces back to a Destin, Florida Church Retreat for children and as many already know that Destin, Fl is home to the boys from Saudi Arabia and the CIA's General Bowen Ballard it is also the place where the Muslim Brotherhood was started by AHMED ELKADI and moved to Panama City in the early 80's.

Belgium Edit

Marc Dutroux Edit

See also:

Marc Dutroux kidnapped and murdered several girls during the mid-1990s.

While on welfare, Dutroux had earned 6 million Belgian francs ($150,000 USD). Dutroux made large deposits into his bank accounts shortly after certain kidnappings, suggesting that he was paid by another party who was never prosecuted. [26]

Accused accomplices:

  • Michelle Martin - Dutroux's girlfriend, found guilty
  • Michel Lelièvre - found guilty
  • Jean-Michel Nihoul - hung jury

The X-Witnesses place Dutroux as a small part of a wider pedophile ring that dates as far back as the 1950s, with Dutroux arriving in the early 1980s. Rumours connected these sex parties with the Gladio stay-behind operation, the Brabant killers, the Haemers gang, and the [[Communist Combatant Cells].

The X-Files Edit

The book The X-Files: What Belgium Was Not Supposed to Know About the Dutroux Affair, written by De Morgan reporters Annemie Bulte and Douglas De Coninck and by Journal du Mardi reporter Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, discusses six witnesses who described: [26]

an underworld of snuff movies and sadomasochist torture that was almost impossible to believe. And they said that politicians and other highly placed members of society were involved... The book asserts that the evidence indicates a huge effort by magistrates and senior police officials to demolish the testimony of the X-witnesses...

Regina Louf described] a circle of orgies at which, she said, she had seen young children tortured and murdered. The other X-witnesses, one of whom worked for the police, told similar stories of childhood abuse, and described hunts at which children were chased through woods with Dobermans.

Van Heeswyck was charged with revealing prosecutor secrets. [26]

Lead investigator Patriek De Baets says that Leof provided evidence matching the unsolved murders of two young women in the 1980s. De Baets would be removed from the case and placed under internal investigation. [26]

Investigator Aime Bille claims that other investigations were shut down on the grounds of Louf being an incompetent witness after superiors found that Louf's claims corresponded with other evidence gathered in those investigations. [26]

Those accused in the X-Files include: [34] [35] [36]

Melchior Wathelet Edit

One of the X-files described: [34]

a combined feast and orgy organized by Melchior Wathelet in a castle located in the region of Verviers.

Jean-Michel Nihoul Edit

Louf accuses Jean-Michel Nihoul of the 1984 murder of Christine van Hees which had been closed on the orders of Judge Jean-Claude Van Espen, who had close personal ties to Nihoul. [35]

Louf accurately described the internal appearance of the the chateau at a disused mushroom farm where the body of van Hees was found, suggesting that she had been there before the building was demolished. [31]

Car theft Edit

Retired judge Guy Poncelet claims that Dutroux was involved in a stolen car ring. Poncelet's son was killed in 1996 while investigating the ring. Template:Cn

Cover-up Edit

According to the Associated Press: [37]

Police had visited Dutroux' home twice in the mid-1990s and didn't find the kidnapped girls, although they heard voices, and ignored a letter from Dutroux's mother that expressed concern her son was abusing young girls.

According to Crime Library: [38]

Police ignored a tip from a Dutroux informant in 1993, in which he stated that Dutroux offered him between $3,000 and $5,000 to kidnap young girls ... In 1995, Dutroux's own mother wrote to prosecutors reporting that she had knowledge that her son had been keeping young girls in one of his unoccupied houses. The same man who tipped off police to Dutroux's offer of money to kidnap young girls, later told police in 1995 that he had learned that Dutroux was building a dungeon to keep girls in that he would later sell into prostitution.

According to the Telegraph: [39]

In January 1996 Judge Connerotte wrote to King Albert alleging that his investigations into crime networks were being blocked because suspects "apparently enjoyed serious protection."

According to the Los Angeles Times: [40]

Russo, Bouzet and others allege that well-connected suspects have been afforded "political protection" by authorities, and a highly regarded children's activist, Marie-France Botte, claims that the Justice Ministry is sitting on a politically sensitive list of customers of pedophile videotapes produced by Melissa and Julie's accused abductors.

Judge Jacques Langlois forbid investigators from testing the DNA of hair samples found in Dutroux's dungeon. Prosecutor-General Anne Thily declared: [31]

There was no need to get the hairs analysed as no one else entered the cage. There was no network so there was no need to look for evidence of one.

Slovakia connection Edit

From the BBC: [41]

Investigators believe Dutroux and Nihoul were planning a long distance prostitution trafficking network involving cars and the import of girls from Slovakia.

Rotary Club connection Edit

Witnesses X2 and Nathalie W. allege a connection between the Dutroux pedophile network and the Rotary Club. [36]

Patrick Derochette Edit

Patrick Derochette kidnapped and killed a nine-year-old girl named Loubna in 1992. Derochette was said to be an associate of Michel Nihoul. [42]

Possible connection to Cools murder Edit

A motorcycle found at Dutroux's home matched one used in the 1991 assassination of former Parti Socialiste leader André Cools. [40]

André Pinon allegations Edit

In 1981, a woman reported to psychiatrist André Pinon that there had been sex parties where children had died. She also told her story to Jean-Claude Garot, editor of the weekly POUR, whose offices were soon gutted in an arson attack. [43] These allegations are similar to those of the X-witnesses.

Brabant killings Edit

Alexandra Cohen alleges that the Brabant killings were assassinations of witnesses to the Ballets Rouges of Belgium. [42]

The gang specialised in robbing supermarkets in broad daylight. The booty was always very poor, but that did not seem to bother them. The reason why the committed their crimes, apparently, was the thrill they got from slaughtering every supermarket shopper in sight...

A scrutiny of the gang’s victims could be linked to the “Pink Ballets.” The apparently random killings of the Crazy Brabant Killers had been a cover-up for eliminating dangerous witnesses of sex parties (probably with minors-orgies among consenting adults are not illegal under Belgian law).

Tuna Israel Edit

Fortunato Habib Israel, the public relations director of Société Générale subsidiary Eurosystem Hospitalier, ran a prostitution ring during the 1970s on behalf of ASCO chairman Roger Boas. [44]

France Edit

Les Ballets Roses Edit

Wikipeidia, citing Ralph Manheim's translation of Louis-Ferdinand Céline's Nord:

The Ballets roses was a scandal that was publicized in 1959 in France. In a fashionable country house near Paris, belonging to the French Senate, a group of girls aged 15 to 17 performed "ballets" attended by prominent figures of the political and social worlds, notably, André Le Troquer, then president of the Senate. The performances ended in orgies.

From the French Wikipedia, a Le Monde article of January 10, 1959 reported on the capture of a policeman, elsewhere identified as Pierre Sorlut, who had been kidnapping children for their use in sex parties organized by Le Troquer and his wife Elisabeth Pinajeff, described in contemporary reports as a Russian countess. Twenty-two defendants were convicted, including hairdresser Arturo Guglielmi, restaurateur Georges Biancheri, and garment maker Jean Gessier.

Jimmy Saville Edit

Satanic abuse claims Edit

Therapist Valerie Sinason claims to have two witnesses to Jimmy Saville performing Satanic ritual abuse in 1975 and 1980, and says that they reported these actions to the police at the time. [51]

He also chanted “Hail Satan” in Latin as other paedophile devil worshippers joined in and assaulted the girl at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire [in 1975]... Savile was a volunteer porter and fundraiser at the hospital between 1965 and 1988 and had his own quarters there.

... A second victim approached me in 1993. She said she had been ‘lent out’ as a supposedly consenting prostituted woman at a party in a London house in 1980... [She saw Savile in a master of ceremonies kind of role with a group wearing robes and masks. She too heard Latin chanting and instantly recognised satanist regalia.

Sinason is an advocate of the theory of satanic ritual abuse and has been accused of planting false memories in patients.

Frank Beck Edit

Frank Beck (sex offender) managed three childrens' homes in the UK from 1973 to 1986. He was accused in 1989 of molesting children under his care and convicted in 1991. After Beck died in prison in 1994, Lord Longford sent flowers to his funeral. Template:Cn

Lord Greville Janner, member of British parliament since 1970, was accused during Beck's trial of molesting children under Beck's care. No charges were brought at the time. Janner's home was raided in 2013 for evidence of crimes against children, but the case was dropped in 2014. Template:Cn

Lord Brittan Edit

In 1983, Scotland Yard gave Lord Brittan a dossier on the Paedophile Information Exchange which named 15 men as suspected pedophiles. The dossier may have been passed on to Thomas Hetherington. [56]

In 1983, MP Geoffrey Dickens compiled a 40-page dossier on high-profile pedophiles and delivered it to Home Secretary Leon Brittan. It has since disappeared. [57] "Soon afterwards, Mr Dickens’ constituency home in Saddleworth, Lancs, and his flat in London were ransacked – and his name was found in a notebook owned by killer Arthur Hutchinson." [58]

It had a deliberately reduced charge," and a nearly identical bullet was used in a gang killing in Liverpool a few years later. A second source "with close knowledge of the Dando murder investigation" called these reports "complete nonsense." [73]

Operation Ore Edit

Operation Ore, an investigation into the purchase of child pornography, led to 1,200 arrests but closed in 2003 after identifying "at least one high-profile former Labour Cabinet minister" in the list of suspects. "Police say that the list of rich and famous Operation Ore suspects would fill newspaper front pages for an entire year." [74]

Witness deaths Edit

From David McGowan, citing an Irish Times report of July 17, 1998:

Police suspect a series of gruesome gay hate killings in the Sydney region could be the work of a serial killer whose victims might be linked through a notorious paedophile ring. The latest mutilation murder was that of Australia's longest serving mayor, Frank Arkell, aged 68, who was bludgeoned to death in his flat and who had previously faced 29 child sex charges. In the past few months two other men, one a convicted child sex offender, were attacked in their homes in similar circumstances and also suffered horrific injuries. Arkell, the former Lord Mayor of Wollongong, 50 miles south of Sydney, was a key witness in a royal commission into police corruption which uncovered a network of paedophiles.
