The UK Pedogate and US Pizzagate Analogues

The US “Pizzagate” as it has now become known, has its analogue in the recent pedophile scandal(s), involving the British elite, which included more than one Knighted politician and a former Prime Minister, as well as Jeff Epstein friend, Prince Andrew. The British media historically silenced and attempted to cover up and obfuscate facts, before finally admitting it was true.

New investigations have revealed pedophile rings operating out of multiple UK children’s care homes with half-hearted investigations and thwarted prosecutions spanning the last 30 years.

The UK has been plagued with child care home abuse scandals with multiple coverup accusations made against Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, lost evidence, even suspicions that pedophile ring whistleblowers had been murdered. Similarly, some US mainstream media began misreporting and then “debunking” misrepresentations of the allegations uncovered in Wikileaks. Some mainstream responses to the information were focused on how the leaks occurred, rather than dealing with the content inside the materials.

Rise of the Citizen-Researcher

This left a gap in investigative journalism, prompting the rise of “Citizen-Journalists” and “Citizen-Researchers”. This independent, crowd-led investigation caught fire after it was revealed by researchers and other sites that Mark Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of the NY Times -which was denying the evidence of an American pedophile scandal- was the same Mark Thompson, Former Director-General of the BBC, accused of lying to cover up the British Pedophile scandal.

Therefore, when the BBC published a contemporary article alleging the American pedophile scandal was fake, researchers saw it as an indication that the allegations were true. People began researching independently and started posting caches of information gleaned from the leaks on the front page of the internet an interesting twist, reddit banned the entire thread of research on the alleged criminal network. Ironically, rather than crush the investigation, it spread the investigation laterally, across multiple platforms. Citizen researchers disseminated the information and added to it, creating more researchers in the wake of the ban.

FBI Anonymous on 4chan

People had already began dialoguing online with “FBI Anon” on 4chan by late 2016. Among other things, the AMAs (Ask Me Anything) predicted a series of pedophile-related arrests taking place after the Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2017. They described a wave of arrests, first dealing with low level arrests, moving on to mid-level arrests and ending in highest-level arrests.

It would be impossible to prove that this was a dialogue with a real “FBI insider”. True or not, this seemed to fuel a new wave of investigation, as researchers turned to older Wikileaks, cross referencing old materials with new leads and publishing even more information online.

Active Suppression

Since the onset of the independent investigations there has been active suppression of research on Reddit, 4Chan, and Twitter via mass post deletions and DDoS attacks, while “skeptical” articles claiming to “debunk” misstated and mischaracterized pizzagate theories begun appearing, pushing search results pertaining to the actual #Pizzagate research further and further down in search results online.

Historically, there has been documentary after documentary  and scattered reports about pedophilia and ritual abuse in elite circles. Cory Feldman and Elijah Wood have discussed it in Hollywood. The “Boy’s Town“ allegations in Nebraska were outlined in the documentary Conspiracy of Silence. Similarly- a Jerry Sandusky victim claimed Sandusky was only part of a much larger pedophile ring, implicating the foster care organization Sandusky founded, The Second Mile Foundation, as well as Penn State University.

Internationally, US soldiers were told to ignore violent pedophilia in the Afghani military ranks even when it occurred on US military bases, as high-level Pentagon staffers were caught buying child porn while the investigation seemed to be swept under the rug. Global-level pedophilia coverups from within the Catholic church  is contemporary to the alleged pedophilia ring going all the way to the top of UNICEF, also known as the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Six Degrees of Separation

The Madeleine McCann Abduction Investigation receives extended funding with a “new lead” on a suspect. Madeleine McCann’s abduction from Praia da Luz, Portugal made worldwide headlines in May of 2007. When the McCann’s became persons of interest, their PR Agent stepped down from the case, and Clarence Mitchell, stepped away from his position as Director of the Media Monitoring Unit at the British Government’s Central Office of Information, to represent the McCanns. He also signed on to work for Freud Communications, run by Sir Clement Freud’s son, Matthew Freud. March 12-June 12

Sir Clement Freud invited the McCann’s to dinner in Portugal, 2 months after the abduction. His villa was situated 1/3 of a mile away from where Maddy was abducted. Once Sir Clement Freud was posthumously exposed as a long-time serial child predator who’d also had unusual contact with the McCann’s, police turned their attention towards him. When it was determined he was not in the country at the time of the abduction, online researchers began looking at everyone connected to Sir Clement Freud-and began wondering if there was a connection to the information uncovered in Wikileaks.

Sir Clement Freud’s son, Matthew Freud, is the great-grandson of “father” of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud and is doubly related to the “father” of public relations, Edward Bernays. A former BBC Journalist, Matthew Freud was married to media-mogul Rupert Murdoch’s daughter, Elisabeth Murdoch. Both Matthew and his late brother, painter Lucien Freud had close relationships with Jacob Rothschild. Rothschild’s 50 year friend and American counterpart, the late David Rockefeller, funds the Partnership for Public Service through his organization, the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund. The Partnership for Public Service publishes the Presidential Transition Guide, which instructs the President elect how to act as President.

Freud Communication’s wunderkind Sara Latham- who moved on when the McCann’s spokesman joined Freud’s Communications- was a consultant to the Clinton Foundation, White House Staff to Bill Clinton, a communications advisor for Tony Blair, was appointed to Obama’s transition team in 2008 and became Senior Advisor to Hillary Clinton.

Most recently in the 2016 Presidential Election, Sarah Latham was John Podesta’s Chief of Staff.

A Small Club

Prince Andrew, Virginia Roberts (17) and Ghislaine Maxwell
Virginia Roberts filed suit against Prince Andrew in 2011 and has for years maintained she was prostituted by Ghislaine Maxwell (pictured above) and Jeff Epstein (pictured below) and was raped by Prince Andrew as well as Alan Dershowitz. Though she was not successful in joining the current lawsuit of other women (Jane Does #1-4) against Jeff Epstein, she has nonetheless, been fighting in court for years.

The Daily Mail Prince Andrew, with an unnamed young woman, not his wife.

Prince Andrew and convicted/registered child sex offender, Jeff Epstein The Daily Mail

Jeff Epstein made sensational headlines across NY and Palm Beach when he was arrested and eventually convicted of solicitation of a minor and made to register as a child sex offender. He has faced multiple lawsuits regarding his sexual assault, rape and exploitation of underage girls. He has reportedly settled lawsuits from more than 30 “Jane Doe” victims since 2008; the youngest alleged victim was 12 years old at the time of her abuse.

The Guardian states:

In 2006, the FBI opened an investigation into allegations that Epstein had been paying for sex with underage girls at his Palm Beach mansion for years. By the following year federal prosecutors said they had identified 40 young women who may have been illegally procured by Epstein.

In 2008, however, the federal inquiry was dropped after Epstein negotiated a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead guilty to a relatively minor state charge relating to soliciting paid sex with a minor – a 14-year-old girl. He served 13 months of an 18-month sentence and is now a registered sex offender.

Epstein and The Prince are close enough that Epstein actually paid off debts for Prince Andrew’s ex wife, Sarah Ferguson, The Dutchess of York. According to the BBC, “in March 2011 – he [Prince Andrew] came in for a steady stream of criticism over his friendship with US tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, who was jailed for sex offenses. There were even calls for him to step down then.”

Virginia Roberts also sued Ghislaine Maxwell and that case was settled this year under confidential terms.

Ghislaine Maxwell supposedly worked as Epstein’s madame. “She said she worked for a very wealthy gentleman called Jeffrey Epstein who was looking for a traveling masseuse and I’d get training and be paid large amounts of money,” Roberts told the Mail.

“Jeffrey said he wanted to be my mentor,” says Miss Roberts. “I felt that he and Ghislaine really cared for me. We’d do family things, like watch Sex And The City and eat popcorn.

“But it was a sick family. I was a paedophile’s top girl, being trained up for a British Prince. He trained me to do whatever a man wanted.

Prince Andrew and President Bill Clinton NY Magazine

Bill Clinton is a known womanizer, but has also been accused of rape, sexual assault and unwanted sexual contact by many women, outlined here in The Washington Post’s well organized guide to Bill Clinton’s womanizing and different instances of him being accused of rape.

The relationship between Clinton, Epstein and Maxwell goes way back. New York Magazine’s profile of Jeff Epstein before his incarceration for soliciting a minor, mentions all three in the following excerpt:

Friends of the two [Epstein and Maxwell] say that Maxwell, whose social life has always been higher-octane than Epstein’s, lent a little pizzazz to the lower-profile Epstein. Indeed, at a party at Maxwell’s house, her friends say, one is just as apt to see Russian ladies of the night as one is to see Prince Andrew. The Oxford-educated Maxwell, described by many as a man-eater (she flies her own helicopter and was recently seen dining with Clinton at Nello’s on Madison Avenue)

What’s curious here is that the NY Magazine profile of Jeff Epstein seems to oddly corroborate Virginia Robert’s claims made during an interview by The Daily Mail, published by Gawker:

Roberts alleges that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times, the first during a visit to London. “Andrew was making eye contact with me at every chance and concentrating on my plunging V-neck top,” she told the Mail. “He didn’t ask me anything about myself. I just sat there with a smile frozen on my lips. Ghislaine had whispered, ‘The Prince seems really interested in you.'”

Roberts claims that Epstein paid her about $15,000 for sleeping with the Prince, the Mail reports. Also: “There is no suggestion that the Prince knew that Epstein paid her.”

The second time she was coerced into having sex with the prince was at Epstein’s Manhattan apartment, Roberts claims; the third alleged time was on Epstein’s Caribbean island, where a group of Russian models were flown in for an orgy.

Of course, once his Epstein’s allegations went to trial, it was also reveled by Gawker and confirmed in FAA flight logs (page 8) that Bill Clinton was on Jeff Epstein’s plane nicknamed the, “Lolita Express” many times-as was Alan Dershowitz.

Federal Aviation Administration Flight Logs, Evidence in Edwards (Virginia Roberts) vs. Epstein

Virginia Roberts claimed Epstein made her have sex with Alan Dershowitz and others, including Britain’s Prince Andrew, on multiple occasions. This suit was filed and Dershowitz denied all allegations. A countersuit was brought by Dershowitz against Robert’s lawyers which ended in a settlement. The following portion of the joint statement is of particular note:

Brad Edwards, Paul Cassell and Alan Dershowitz have today settled their pending defamation claims in which Edwards and Cassell sued Dershowitz and Dershowitz counterclaimed against Edwards and Cassell. The case was about Dershowitz’s public claims that Edwards and Cassell, as the attorneys for Virginia Roberts, had failed to perform the necessary due diligence before filing the allegations of their client, not whether the acts of alleged misconduct in fact occurred.

The federal non-prosecution agreement made at the time of Epstein’s “sweetheart deal” organized by Alan Dershowitz-one of Epstein’s “Dream Team” lawyers- excludes prosecution of those who allegedly procured minors for Epstein and also any power-brokers 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:

Dershowitz would later play a significant role in negotiating the NPA on Epstein’s behalf. Indeed, Dershowitz helped negotiate an agreement that provided immunity from federal prosecution in the Southern District of Florida not only to Epstein, but also to “any potential co-conspirators of Epstein”. . . . Thus, Dershowitz helped negotiate an agreement with a provision that provided protection for himself against criminal prosecution in Florida for sexually abusing Jane Doe #3.

[Jane Doe #3: Virginia Roberts]

Given this context, does it seem reasonable that some of these cases of “VIP pedophile rings” might be connected?

Given the wealth of historical facts about all of these people, evidentiary court findings leading to convictions and statements and associations, is it really so impossible to think that Bill and Hillary Clinton and financial/political power-brokers John and Tony Podesta would be involved?
