According to the figures, there was a 22 percent surge in sexual crime since 2013. Continue reading »
- Oligarch Justice – Powerful Pedophiles Roam Free as Barrett Brown Returns to Jail (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Jan 22, 2015):
If Dershowitz was a good friend to Epstein, he was a better lawyer. Along with a dream team of attorneys that included Gerald Lefcourt, Roy Black, and Ken Starr, he was successful in getting federal investigators not to charge Epstein with moving his victims across state lines and other associated crimes. The federal non-prosecution agreement Epstein’s legal team negotiated with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida immunized all named and unnamed “potential co-conspirators” in Epstein’s child trafficking network, which includes those who allegedly procured minors for Epstein and also any powerbrokers who may have molested them. Although Dershowitz wasn’t a signatory to the plea agreement, the latest filings in Roberts’s case against Epstein accuse Dershowitz of essentially negotiating his own immunity.
From the Gawker article: Flight Logs Put Clinton, Dershowitz on Pedophile Billionaire’s Sex Jet
Today was a very big day for journalist, activist and American political prisoner Barrett Brown. Though he was supposed to be sentenced last month (see: Political Prisoner Barrett Brown to Be Sentenced Tomorrow – Why the Result Matters to Freedom in America), it was delayed until today.
Tragically, he was ultimately sentenced to 63 months in federal prison for some relatively innocuous offenses. For those of us who have been following this saga for several years, it is abundantly clear that Barrett is being punished for exposing the shady behavior of some powerful people within the intelligence-industrial complex. He is one of several people (Aaron Swartz, Thomas Drake, Private Manning, and Julian Assange) who have been aggressively targeted, not for what they have done, but rather for their ability to embarrass and expose the evils of the rich and powerful.

As if that witch had to look at secret dossiers …
A classified government file describing “unnatural” sexual activity occurring in Westminster circles in the early 1980s may have been seen by ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, an intelligence expert says.
The documents were stored in the ex-PM’s files, suggesting she may have seen them during her premiership.
A spokesman for the Cabinet Office told RT on Wednesday the dossier will be sent to Britain’s inquiry into historic child sex abuse.
The sensitive document was discovered by security and intelligence expert, Dr Chris Murphy, who was suspicious of its title: “PREM19/588 -SECURITY. Allegations against former public [missing word] of unnatural sexual proclivities; security aspects 1980 Oct 27 – 1981 Mar 20.”
Murphy told Sky News he found the file when he was sifting through the “’PREM’ Prime Minister file series for the 1980s.”
“I think I did a double-take and then started wondering what the potential implications of the title, which is a little vague, could be,” he said.
The precise details of the file have not been publicly disclosed. A Cabinet Office spokesman said the document won’t be released to the public on the grounds of national security. Continue reading »
- Alan Dershowitz denies EVER being around underage women in presence of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein… just one day after ‘sex slave’ said he would chat with the billionaire during sex acts (Daily Mail, Jan 22, 2015):
A Harvard law professor named with Prince Andrew in a ‘sex slave’ case today insisted that he never saw anything improper at the home of their billionaire pedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein.
Alan Dershowitz’s claims on Thursday came just one day after accuser Virginia Roberts said in new court filings that the lawyer would chat with Epstein as she performed a sex act on the billionaire.
Speaking in an emphatic interview on the Today show , Dershowitz again accused Roberts of ‘making the whole thing up’ and said her lawyers are putting ‘real’ rape victims ‘in a terrible position’.
‘I was never in the presence of a single underage woman,’ he said. ‘I never saw [Epstein] doing anything improper. I was not a witness. I was not a participant. And I will prove it.’

- She said she was working as a teen ‘sex slave’ for paedophile Epstein
- Her aunt told how Ms Roberts, 31, fled Florida home several months ago
- Said she fled amid fears of reprisals from Epstein and his powerful friends
The woman at the centre of the Prince Andrew under-age sex scandal was forced to flee her home and ‘fears for her life’, her aunt claimed last night.
Virginia Roberts, 31, sparked headlines around the globe when she filed sensational court papers claiming she slept with the Prince three times, including as a juvenile of 17 under Florida law, while working as a teen ‘sex slave’ for convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Last night Virginia’s aunt Carol Roberts Kess, a devout Mormon who helped raise her, spoke for the first time to tell how terrified Virginia fled her Florida home several months ago amid fears of reprisals from billionaire Epstein and his rich and powerful friends.
‘She knew these court papers were coming out so she packed up and fled,’ Carol said.
‘She is frightened for her life. She has angered a lot of powerful and very rich people. Who knows what they could do?’ Continue reading »

Disturbing new allegations surfaced this week concerning a handful of rich and powerful men, each accused of abusing underage girls described in court filings as “sex slaves.” According to some online activists, however, the recent news is only the scab atop a festering wound of criminal sexual activity.
The high-profile dossier revealed this week includes Britain’s Prince Andrew and Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz, among others. The accusations are tied to an established lawsuit brought by women who claim that they were sexually abused as minors by American investment banker Jeffrey Epstein, who in 2008 was convicted of soliciting sex from underage girls.

- Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz Named in Child Sex Sting (The Vatic Project, Jan 4, 2015):
Vatic Note: After all the blogs we have posted about the Royals and their perversions as related by David Icke and others, this below, does not surprise me, nor does Alan Dershowitz, since he is as much a Khazar as the royal family.
It’s not just this crowd, its all the globalists and our children will not be safe once these perverts are in absolute power with no restrictions. Slavery, will be both labor and sex and children, so understand what their control of the world will mean to all of us.
They have “SAID” more than once that the goyim are cattle they own and can use at will for their purposes and that we are too stupid to know that, so their deceptions will work. They even said that we were sooo stupid, we would believe anything they told us to believe, thru their MSM that they own.
This is going on at the tops of many governments, not just England, or USA, but elsewhere as well, since so many of the royals are decended from the khazars and are practicing Satanists. What in the world did we expect….. Remember, these are the people who pedophile their own children through satanic ritual in order to brain wash them into continuing their global world order agenda.

About the author:
Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year, he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.”

- £2mn cadet sex-abuse silence: UK Def Min exposed (RT, Dec 29, 2014):
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has paid more than £2 million in out-of-court settlements during the past three years following claims of sexual abuse against cadets, a freedom of information request has revealed.
The information, obtained by the Guardian, showed that the MoD had settled out-of-court payments for allegations including abuse rituals performed by older boys on younger cadets. Some cases were payouts to adults for historic abuse claims, but others were reportedly much more recent.
In 2014, eight payouts, totaling £544,213, were made to cadets who claimed to have suffered abuse in the Army Cadets, Combined Cadet Force (CCF) and Air Cadet Organisation.
In one case, it was alleged that a victim of sexual abuse had given birth to her abuser’s child following repeated sexual abuse. The girl subsequently suffered chronic post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychological problems. The MoD admitted liability and paid £210,000 in settlement. Continue reading »
- Victim says witnessed three boys murdered by VIP paedophiles (PressTV, Dec 18. 2014):
Scotland Yard says it is investigating the murders of three boys by what is now known as a ‘VIP sex ring’ suspected to include several high-ranking military officials and politicians.
Detectives say they are looking into accounts of the murders as recited by an abuse victim whom they have described as ‘a credible source’.
According to a shocking account by the abuse victim, who is referred to as ‘Nick’, a Conservative MP had throttled a 12-year-old boy in a depraved sex party at a luxury town house in London sometime in the early 80s.
Nick has told detectives that he had been in the same room at the time and that a group of men had also watched the murder.
On another occasion, Nick claimed a young boy, who was around ten-years-old, was deliberately run down and killed by a car being driven by one of his abusers.
A third boy was allegedly murdered during a depraved orgy at which another Conservative MP was present. Continue reading »

Riots have broken out in southern France over the death of a young activist killed by a police grenade.
At least 16 people were arrested in Toulouse as rubbish bins were torched and bus shelters smashed during a demonstration in the French city.
The riots unfolded on the margins of an otherwise peaceful march where protesters carried placards reading ‘End to the licence to kill’.
At one point during the stand-off, demonstrators were dispersed by powerful jets of water.
The person who called 911 on the boy CLEARLY WARNED the dispatcher that the child’s toy gun was “fake.” Despite this warning, police shot and killed the boy.

Following heated debate, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet has voted in favor of anchoring in law the status of Israel as “the national homeland of the Jewish people,” which critics fear would discriminate the Arab population.
According to the draft law, Israel’s Basic Laws would no longer define it as “Jewish and democratic” country, but as the Nation-State of the Jewish People.
15 Israeli ministers in the cabinet supported the ‘Jewish state bill,’ with only six, including Israeli Justice Minister, Tzipi Livni, saying ‘no’ to the initiative on Sunday.
The bill now has to be approved by the country’s parliament, Knesset, which is scheduled to vote on it on Wednesday.

Up until now, they at least pretended to be there to serve as watchdogs, but it seems like they’ve decided to give up on that silly illusion.…
The claim was as clear as it was chilling: behind the genteel façade of one of London’s most famous apartment blocks, children faced abuse on an industrial scale.
Every weekend, groups of vulnerable boys from local care homes were being smuggled to an address in Dolphin Square, Pimlico. There, after being plied with alcohol, they suffered sickening sexual assaults.
The paedophile ring orchestrating these crimes had, over time, come to believe it enjoyed immunity, a whistle-blower told police at the time.
After all, members were said to include a cross-section of Britain’s most influential politicians.
Two retired detectives have reportedly backed claims that young boys were murdered by politicians at paedophile orgies.
The claims, said to be in new written statements handed to the Metropolitan Police, have emerged just a week after a witness called ‘Nick’ claimed he saw a Tory MP throttle a 12-year-old boy to death.
Scotland Yard has already confirmed it is examining a ‘possible homicide’ committed 30 years ago by a paedophile ring whose ranks included senior Establishment figures.
The revelation came as the Home Secretary Theresa May admitted the recent spate of child abuse allegations were only the ‘tip of the iceberg’.
A top Conservative MP invited a paedophile business consultant to the House of Commons for lunch meetings, it has been reported.
Sir Edward Leigh, 64, held meetings inside Westminster where he entertained an entrepreneur who has been convicted of making thousands of indecent images of children.
Businessman Duncan Breeze was given privileged access to parliament buildings as recently as a few months ago, it has been claimed.
The 39-year-old was jailed in 2007 for two years after 4,270 ‘sickening’ images of minors were found on his computers and placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.
Revelations that politicians allegedly murdered and raped young boys is “only the tip of the iceberg” in the Westminster historic child abuse scandal, Theresa May has warned.
The Home Secretary expressed dismay that institutions designed to protect children failed in the past and said she was determined to bring those guilty to justice, whatever their position.

- The Real Reason Why The Netherlands Repatriated Its Gold (ZeroHedge):
In what could definitely be called a stunning move, the Netherlands has announced it has repatriated in excess of 120 tonnes of gold from the vaults of the Federal Reserve in New York to the Dutch Central Bank in Amsterdam. Officially a move made to rebalance the locations where the gold is being stored, one cannot ignore the fact that the Netherlands only repatriated a large part of the gold which was stored in New York and it did not touch the gold stored in Canada and London.
Additionally, it’s not just ‘some’ gold being brought back home, no, the total amount is 122.47 tonnes or almost 4 million ounces with a market value of $5B. This will reduce the exposure of the Dutch Central Bank to the US financial system as now just 31% of its gold is being stored in the vault of the Fed, coming down from 51%. We have the impression this won’t be the last repatriation as the Dutch Central Bank is keeping its shipping route secret ‘in case more gold needs to be repatriated’.

Sporadic confrontations and violence between protesters and police continued to occur overnight in Ferguson as multiple news agencies report grand jury considering whether to indict the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown is unlikely to meet and render a decision this weekend.

- The Consequences of Imposing Negative Interest Rates (Acting Man):
Negative Interest Rates and Capital Consumption
Ever since the ECB has introduced negative interest rates on its deposit facility, people have been waiting for commercial banks to react. After all, they are effectively losing money as a result of this bizarre directive, on excess reserves the accumulation of which they can do very little about.
At first, only a small regional bank, Deutsche Skatbank, imposed a penalty rate on large depositors – slightly in excess of the 20 basis points banks must currently pay for ECB deposits. It turns out this was a Trojan horse. Other banks were presumably watching to see if depositors would flee Skatbank, and when that didn’t happen, Commerzbank decided to go down the same road.
However, there is an obvious flaw in taking such measures – at least is seems obvious to us. The Keynesian overlords at the central bank who came up with this idea have failed to consider a warning Ludwig von Mises once uttered about the attempt to abolish interest by decree.

The Guardian reports that:
The security services are facing questions over the cover-up of a Westminster paedophile ring as it emerged that files relating to official requests for media blackouts in the early 1980s were destroyed.
Two newspaper executives have told the Observer that their publications were issued with D-notices – warnings not to publish intelligence that might damage national security – when they sought to report on allegations of a powerful group of men engaging in child sex abuse in 1984. One executive said he had been accosted in his office by 15 uniformed and two non-uniformed police over a dossier on Westminster paedophiles passed to him by the former Labour cabinet minister Barbara Castle.
Ah, national security. Remember that the next time you are lectured that we need to give up our civil liberties in the name of “national security.” Think about what that really means. It really means the security of the status quo to continue to behave like insane criminals with zero accountability.
It is unclear whether the person in charge of the Lois Lerner “disappeared IRS emails” strategy was also Dr. Gruber, but whoever conceived of the idiotic idea that the fatal failure of a local hard disk means that emails which are stored on at least one server miles away, and subsequently downloaded via POP3, IMAP or some other protocol, have vaporized, clearly also relied on the stupidity (and laziness) of the American people. And like in the case of Obamacare, the lies worked, if only for a short period of time. And because when it comes to lies coming from the very top, there is never just one cockroach, and they always inevitably scatter, the latest headache for a scandal-ridden president is that Lois Lerner’s email, supposedly gone in perpetuity, have mysteriously reappeared, and as the Washington Examiner reports, “up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.”

The ultimate goal of the anti-Russian sanctions imposed by some Western nations is to stir public protests and oust the government, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
“Western leaders publicly state that the sanctions must hurt [Russia’s] economy and stir up public protests. The West doesn’t want to change Russia’s policies. They want a regime change. Practically nobody denies that,” he told a leading think-tank in Moscow.
Lavrov said that the tensions between Russia and the West had been brewing for years before the Ukrainian crisis, adding that now the Europeans had decided to go for all-or-nothing and play chicken with Russia. But at least the positions have been made clear, Lavrov said.
German police used pepper spray and clashed with anti-EU protesters, who stormed and vandalized the new European Central Bank building, which is under construction now in central Frankfurt.
Calling themselves Blockupy, thousands of activists gathered in the city center on Saturday and marched to the goal of their protest, the new ECB office, which is to be inaugurated next March.
The cost of the new office is almost 1.3 billion euros and this fact has caused a lot of criticism while the policy of austerity is applied all over Europe.
“While our colleagues, friends and comrades in Southern Europe continue to rebel against the depletion and impoverishment policies of the Troika, the ECB moves into its new palace,” Blockupy website says. “Blockupy moves on to the road. We will make our own move to the new building and give back to the ECB the garbage – in and with many moving boxes – that should have been thrown into the dustbin of history: racist and sexist division, impoverishment, privatization of public funds and goods and wars to secure resources.”
The news this week of China’s largest corporate bankruptcy - Haixin Iron & Steel Group – amid crashing iron ore and steel prices was followed by analysts noting it “will be followed by others,” as the major flaw of producers of iron ore, the most traded commodity after oil, is they tend to be “over-bullish.” Distressed debt funds are starting to circle in preparation for what they expect to be a bloodbath as Bloomberg reports, bad debts in China are well underestimated because authorities persist in propping up weak companies and bailing out local investors, according to DAC Management, “we’ve yet to see it because if you look at corporate defaults, they keep getting covered by the government. At some point, they can’t cover every single one.” Most worryingly though, as KPMG points out, “when you see restructuring advisers getting hired by SOEs… you know it’s coming.”

- Are You Better Off This Thanksgiving Than You Were Last Thanksgiving? (Economic Collapse):
Are you in better shape financially than you were last Thanksgiving? If so, you should consider yourself to be very fortunate because most Americans are not. As you chow down on turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce this Thursday, please remember that there are millions of Americans that simply cannot afford to eat such a meal. According to a shocking new report that was just released by the National Center on Family Homelessness, the number of homeless children in the U.S. has reached a new all-time high of 2.5 million. And right now one out of every seven Americans rely on food banks to put food on the table. Yes, life is very good at the moment for Americans at the top end of the income spectrum. The stock market has been soaring and sales of homes worth at last a million dollars are up 16 percent so far this year. But most Americans live in a very different world. The percentage of Americans that are employed is about the same as it was during the depths of the last recession, the quality of our jobs continues to go down, the rate of homeownership in America has fallen for seven years in a row, and the cost of living is rising much faster than paychecks are. As a result, the middle class is smaller this Thanksgiving than it was last Thanksgiving, and most Americans have seen their standards of living go down over the past year.
In 2014, there are tens of millions of Americans that are anonymously leading lives of quiet desperation. They are desperately trying to hold on even though things just keep getting worse. For example, just consider the plight of 49-year-old Darrell Eberhardt. Once upon a time, his job in a Chevy factory paid him $18.50 an hour, but now he only makes $10.50 an hour and he knows that he probably would not be able to make as much in a new job if he decided to leave…
