Study: More than half of parishes had priest accused of abuse October 11, 2010 More than half of Chicago’s Roman Catholic parishes have had a priest accused of sexually abusing a child working there at some point, according to a study released today that was quickly questioned by the Chicago Archdiocese. In some cases, multiple priests accused of misconduct worked at the same church, according to the study, conducted by reform groups Voice of the Faithful, African American Advocates for Victims of Clergy Sexual Abuse and the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. “In almost 60 percent of the parishes, an accused predator worked there,” said Barbara Blaine, president of SNAP. For example, from 1980 to 1990, 57.7% of Chicago parishes had an accused priest working there, said Bob Kopp, one of the study’s researchers and vice president of Chicagoland Voice of the Faithful. Other decades examined in the study had similar percentages of affected parishes, he said. She is calling for victims to speak up. “Silence protects predators.”….”From the description of what we have heard, it appears that the analysis and conclusions are questionable,” said Colleen Dolan of the archdiocese in an e-mailed statement. “The priests referred to in the … report have all been removed and are not in ministry in the Archdiocese of Chicago.”
New twist in Belgian Catholic abuse legal row AFP, Oct 12, 2010 BRUSSELS: Belgium’s highest court ordered magistrates on Tuesday to re-examine evidence seized by police relating to decades of child abuse and alleged Roman Catholic Church cover-ups. The court overturned two previous decisions by lower courts that rendered inadmissible evidence taken from church headquarters, the home of a former archbishop and a church-backed commission investigating sex crimes perpetrated by priests. Responding to lawyers acting for alleged victims who lodged appeals, the judges said the lower courts were wrong not to hear civil parties and therefore magistrates should look again at the evidence in a new light. It means that truckloads of material gathered by police in spectacular raids in June that drew the ire of Pope Benedict XVI himself could potentially be used to relaunch state prosecutions for abuse.

Priest extradited from U.S. jailed for UK sex abuse Oct 22, 2010 LONDON (Reuters) – A former Roman Catholic priest was jailed for 21 years on Friday for sexual offences against boys, after being extradited to Britain from the United States. James Robinson, a former boxer and colliery blacksmith, was found guilty of 21 charges of sexual abuse between 1959 and 1983, including offences against two altar boys. Robinson, 73, used his status as a priest to gain “unfettered and unlimited” access to boys, giving them gifts and taking them on trips in his sports car, prosecutor John Atwood told the court in Birmingham, central England.

Former U.K. priest jailed for sexual abuse Oct. 22, 2010 LONDON (UPI) — Former Catholic priest James Robinson was sentenced Friday to 21 years in jail in Britain for decades of sexual abuse. Robinson, who was extradited from California to the United Kingdom last year, was found guilty on 21 counts of sexual abuse between 1959 and 1983, The Sun reported. Robinson, 73, fled to the United States from Britain in 1985, when he was first accused of pedophilia. Prosecutors said he was moved from parish to parish as a priest, showering gifts on his intended victims to get close to them. He was convicted of abusing six people, including two altar boys. His victims are now in their 40s, 50s and 60s.

Documents from the San Diego Settlement – On October 22, 2010, Judge William C. Pate ordered the release of documents relating to the sexual abuse of children by priests in the Diocese of San Diego. This document release was a nonmonetary provision of the San Diego settlement, as ordered on August 29, 2008 by Judge Emilie Elias, of the Los Angeles Superior Court. On this page, we present all the documents released by Judge Pate’s order, and during this week, we will post the crucial documents individually for easier download. Some of these documents are also available from the website of the Zalkin Law Firm, which was our source for many of the files. The text of Judge Pate’s order and the files for ten of the priests were provided by attorney Anthony DeMarco.

Unsealed Calif. church docs show abuse allegations October 24, 2010 AP Online By GILLIAN FLACCUS  – SAN DIEGO – Attorneys for nearly 150 people who claim sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests made nearly 10,000 pages of previously sealed internal church documents public Sunday, revealing at least one previously unknown decades-old case in which a priest under police investigation was allowed to leave the U.S. after the Diocese of San Diego intervened. After a three-year legal battle over the Diocese of San Diego’s internal records, a retired San Diego Superior Court judge ruled late Friday that they could be made public. The records are from the personnel files of 48 priests who were either credibly accused or convicted of sexual abuse or were named in a civil lawsuit. The 144 plaintiffs settled with the diocese in 2007 for nearly $200 million, but the agreement stipulated that an independent judge would review the priests’ sealed personnel records and determine what could be made public.
The files show what the diocese knew about abusive priests, starting decades before any allegations became public, and that some church leaders shuffled priests from parish to parish or overseas despite credible complaints against them.  “We encourage all Catholics, all members of the community, to look for these documents,” attorney Anthony DeMarco said at a news conference. “These documents demonstrate years and years and decades of concerted action that has allowed this community’s children to be victimized, and it is not until the community looks at these documents that this cycle is ever going to be ended.”

Searching for restitution for their suffering some launched or joined in lawsuits against the Catholic Church. Their partial victory has had an unexpected outcome: In order to settle those lawsuits, the church has begun selling of some church property in Nova Scotia – property that local people helped build and pay for over many generations. Betrayal highlights the consequences of abuse that continue to echo throughout the Catholic Church and in communities across Canada, the U.S and in Europe. (can only be watched in Canada)

Man Arrested After Suing the Vatican By TIM HULL  November 01, 2010   SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A man charged with assaulting a priest at a Jesuit retirement home has sued the Vatican, claiming it knew its priest had sexually molested him and others, and failed to protect him from being “raped, tortured, and forced to engage in sexual acts with his own brother,” when they were children. William Lynch, 43, was arrested on Friday, 2 days after he sued the Vatican, the Oakland Archdiocese, the Jesuit Order, The Christian Family Movement and others in Federal Court. Lynch was accused of assaulting the Rev. Jerold Lindner, 65, in the lobby of a retirement home in Los Gatos, in May this year.
Lynch claims Lindner oversaw his rape, torture and abuse at a summer camp when he was 7, and that the religious defendants knew of Lindner’s propensities, and covered for him for decades. “In May 1975, plaintiff was entrusted to a CFM [Christian Family Movement] children’s camp in Portola State Park in the state of California, whereat he was raped, tortured, and forced to engage in sexual acts with is own brother by Jesuit priest and CFM Camp Spiritual Advisor Jerold W. Lindner. Plaintiff was 7 years old at that time,” according to the complaint.
“Not only did the Jesuit Order know of Lindner’s propensities for child rape and abuse, Lindner was well known by his order as a ‘torturer of children.’ He was specifically known for sexual gratification while torturing his victims among his order, and his reputation and knowledge of his crimes extended all the way to the Holy See in the 1970s [and] 1980s.”….Lynch says in his complaint that the Vatican and the other defendants continue to protect the retired priest after “decades of abuse and hundreds of victims.”  ….The Associated Press reported on Friday, however, that “Father Lindner, 65, has been accused of abuse by nearly a dozen people, including his sister and nieces and nephews. … He has previously denied abusing the Lynch boys and has not been criminally charged. The abuse falls outside the statute of limitations.”
The AP report continued: “Father Lindner was removed from the ministry and placed at the Los Gatos retirement home in 2001. “He was named in two additional lawsuits for abuse between 1973 and 1985, according to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The cases were included in a $660 million settlement struck between the church and more than 550 plaintiffs in 2007.”….”Lindner’s sexual abuse of children began in [the] 1950s, continued through the 1970s and persisted into the 1980s, when Lindner was actually promoted by defendants to a teacher post at an all boys school, Loyola High School in Los Angeles,” according to the complaint.

Paedophile ring in Cornwall ‘abused at least 30 girls’ 26 November 2010 A third man involved in a paedophile ring which police say abused dozens of girls has been convicted of sex crimes. James Machin was found guilty at Truro Crown Court of 10 sex offences relating to girls under 13. Two others were convicted of sex abuse charges in 2008.  Police described the abuse by the men in the Camborne area, found in a three-year investigation, as “horrific”. One victim was five years old. Inquiries began in December 2007 after a victim’s parent raised concerns.

Abused at house
Two girls were abused by the same three men, the court heard.
John Barrett, 49, from the Camborne area, abused two girls, who were aged five and seven when the crimes first started, and passed them on to John Wrey to do the same. Barrett was jailed for 14 years and 6 months in 2008 for 16 sexual offences.
Wrey, 55, from Hayle, who was arrested at the same time as Barrett, is serving a five-and-a-year sentence for his part in the abuse after he was also convicted in 2008. On Friday a jury decided, after two days of deliberations, that Machin was also guilty of similar sex offences against the girls which Barrett had passed on to him. Machin, 54, from Falmouth, who was arrested in June 2009 and had denied all 10 counts, has yet to be sentenced.

NAMBLA Pedophiles Find Facebook Friends By James R. Marsh on October 4, 2010  According to  The world’s largest pro-pedophilia advocacy group uses Facebook to connect with its members throughout the world; to find and exchange photos of children; to hone its members’ predatory behavior; and to identify, target and reel in child victims. Facebook says it has a strict policy against the posting of content that supports groups engaged in child exploitation, yet a simple, five-second search on Facebook, conducted on Sept. 23, yielded dozens of pages devoted to the infamous North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). Many of those pages featured numerous photos of unnamed boys, some of whom appeared to be too young for kindergarten. The same day, found hundreds of links to NAMBLA’s website on Facebook, which has more than half a billion users worldwide. And posts on known pedophile blogs and chat rooms show an organized effort by pedophiles to use the social networking site to prey on children.

EXCLUSIVE: Facebook Begins Purging Pages That Refer to Pedophile  Group NAMBLA By Jana Winter September 29, 2010 Facebook has begun to remove pages that refer to the North American Man/Boy Love Association following a exclusive report that revealed the nefarious pedophile advocacy group’s presence on the popular social networking site.

Facebook Purges Pedo Pages By James R. Marsh on October 20, 2010  Facebook has begun to remove pages that refer to the North American Man/Boy Love Association following a exclusive report that revealed the nefarious pedophile advocacy group’s presence on the popular social networking site.

Facebook…Child Pornography By James R. Marsh on November 9, 2010 Infamous child pornographer….whose trademark …is a longtime, well-recognized tag for hardcore child pornography, has a Facebook interest group with almost 300 fans. Unfortunately, there’s lots more thanks to an anonymous reader of this blog who assembled a damning cornucopia of profiles and links to such Facebook interest groups as “incest,” “preteen hardcore,” “our little group,” and “lolita.”….All of this material was assembled in a few hours by an amateur slooth.

EXCLUSIVE: Facebook’s Filters Fall Short in Blocking Pedophiles By Jana Winter October 21, 2010 Facebook is failing to prevent child predators from posting suggestive and potentially illegal photographs of children on its website, a weeks-long investigation by reveals, despite its claim that it’s doing all it can to keep pedophile materials from being displayed. The world’s largest social network employs content filters that automatically scan for basic keywords that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) identifies as being commonly associated with child exploitive material. Those filters, if they are properly employed, should flag much of the offensive material found on the site, cybersecurity experts say. But in a lengthy telephone interview on Oct. 6, took two Facebook executives on a click-by-click tour of their own website, bringing them face-to-face with some of its vile contents and forcing them to admit that their efforts to block child predators were not working. During a 90-minute phone interview with Facebook spokesman Simon Axten and the company’s chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, the two executives were guided by through the site’s seamy subculture B an encounter that left Sullivan sounding dumbfounded, unaware of and unable to explain the extremely graphic content on the site….
But despite their efforts, found an entire underworld of widely recognized terms, code words and abbreviations on Facebook — hundreds of pages with PTHC and Incest in their titles, and many others that are unprintable. Both terms are on the NCMEC keywords list, sources said, and they were found on Facebook’s public, private, group and profile pages. Many of those pages purported to host video links to child pornography, and many had been active for months.

Facebook’s Child Pornography Problem By James R.

Amazon Yanks Pedophilia E-Book Amid Boycott Talk  11/11/10 appears to have severed sales of an e-book that condones pedophilia, after news of the self-published “child-lover’s” guide went viral on the Internet and sparked cries for a boycott of the online bookseller. The book, “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct,” still appears on the Amazon site, but its link yields an error message. All 3,011 customer reviews are also inaccessible, but a discussion page about the book is still visible. It is rated by Amazon users as having one out of five stars. I am extremely joyous for the Victory pertaining to the removal of this nasty book,” wrote one user. There’s been no official word from Amazon that it has dropped the book. As of this morning, the book was inaccessible on the site, but users in Amazon’s discussion forum  said it was available intermittently throughout the night. Http://

Amazon Backing Down? ‘Pedophile Guide’ Listing Unavailable After Outrage November 11, 2010 An e-book for sale on entitled “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure,” was no longer available from the retailer late Wednesday after shocked consumers across the nation called for a boycott….The listing and description of the item was no longer available early Thursday. It was unclear if the item was intentionally pulled. “This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian [sic] rules for these adults to follow,” a product description read. “I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught.” The content led to hundreds of tweets criticizing Amazon for allowing the title to be sold and a Facebook page was created calling for a boycott of the Seattle-based company.

Amazon defends ‘Pedophile’s Guide’ Another book protested in 2002 for advocating adult-child sex is still available on the site By Helen A.S. Popkin 11/10/2010 NEW YORK C Amazon is selling a self-published book defending pedophiles, sparking discussions about the retailer’s obligation to vet items before they are sold in its online stores, and threats of boycott from Amazon customers if the book is not removed. The book, ” The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct” by Philip R. Greaves II, offers advice to pedophiles afraid of becoming the center of retaliation. It is an electronic book available for Inc.’s Kindle e-reader. The author’s description (misspellings included) reads:
“This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught.”
Amazon issued a statement that will no doubt fuel the outraged comments multiplying on the “Pedophile’s Guide” Amazon page. “Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable,” it reads. “Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.”….A customer review on the “Pedophile’s Guide” Amazon page written by “Outraged Mother” reads, “The line of immorality is at best a zone with ill defined boundaries. Whatever. This crosses into the unsavory and shameful side of the zone. Take it down.”
“There is a point when, even though a company has a no-censorship policy, that selling certain books is simply wrong,” reads “Disgusting Abomination,” another customer review. “Not censoring is one thing, and I commend that, but choosing to sell this book on a site that accessed by millions of people (including children) daily is reprehensible. This is a disgusting choice you have made, Amazon. Whatever money you are making off this book can’t be worth the ire you are receiving for selling it.”….In 2002, cited the First Amendment as justification for offering another book that advocates adult-child sex, “Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers,” by David L. Riegel. Further, the paperback book is still available on the site.

‘Pedophile’s Guide’ Sparks Angry Criticism of Amazon Nov. 10, 2010 – The trend on Twitter today was anger. A group of Twitterati is upset at for selling a Kindle edition of a book called “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure.” With all of Twitter’s 190-million-plus users as an audience, they let their feelings be known — in 140 characters or less. “Dear Amazon,” said one microblogger, using a function that directs the message toward Amazon’s own Twitter account, “Free speech doesn’t include a written manual on how to exploit, molest and rape our children.”  Amazon did not respond to a message from AOL News seeking comment. But in a statement to AOL’s Tech Crunch, the retail giant said: ” Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.” Twitter declined to comment in a message to AOL News. The book’s poorly spelled page on the Amazon website says it aims to make “pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian (sic) rules for these adults to follow.” The Web page lists the publication date as Oct. 28, 2010, and the author as Phillip R. Greaves. The description also says the author hopes the book will lead to “liter (sic) sentences” for pedophiles.

No Longer a Pedophile’s Haven – A crackdown in Cambodia is catching Western men, but locals still mostly unhindered by Brendan Brady November 16, 2010 ….Following pressure from local activists as well as the United States, Australia, and some European countries, Cambodia launched a campaign in 2003 to fight its reputation as a pedophile’s carefree playground. By most accounts, the effort has achieved results. Now, articles about arrests of North American and European nationals pepper the pages of the local press. The crackdown and accompanying PR campaign helped lift Cambodia from the gutter of the U.S. human-trafficking watchlist, making the donor-dependent country eligible for a greater variety of direct aid. :For Western pedophiles, Cambodia is no longer a safe haven,” says Samleang Seila, the head of the local child-protection group Action Pour Les Enfants (APLE). The change is evidenced by a rising number of arrests for “debauchery” and “indecent acts,” which grew from just eight in 2003 to 36 last year, according to APLE. The organization tracks sex tourists, gathers evidence against them and hands their cases over to local police. That’s when things can easily unravel: inexperienced and under-resourced, Cambodia’s police and judiciary are prone to corruption and poor implementation of the law. But despite its shaky foundation, the legal system has made strides, says Joerg Langelotz, of APLE. Case in point: the same judge in the town of Siem Reap who a year and a half ago declined to deliberate on a child-molestation charge because the alleged abuse didn’t exceed fondling has now agreed to hear the case. There is less complacency and more commitment, says Langelotz.

FBI: 69 children, 99 pimps found in national bust – ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press  November 8, 2010 More than five dozen child prostitutes have been found in the last three days as part of a nationwide crackdown on the sexual exploitation of children, the FBI said Monday. FBI spokesman Jason Pack said 69 children were removed from prostitution and 99 suspected pimps were arrested in 40 cities across 30 states and the District of Columbia. Authorities arrested 785 other adults on a variety state and local charges, Pack said. All the children found in the last three days have been placed into protective custody or returned to their families. The children were found during Operation Cross Country V, a three-day roundup targeting child traffickers and pimps. The largest group of child prostitutes, 24, was found in and around Seattle, according to the FBI. FBI executive assistant director Shawn Henry said the children found ranged in age from 12 to 17….Since 2003, when the FBI and the Justice Department launched the Innocence Lost National Initiative, about 1,250 child prostitutes have been located and removed from prostitution.

Federal crackdown on child prostitution results in 884 arrests By Michael Martinez, CNN November 9, 2010 (CNN) — A three-day federal crackdown on child prostitution rings across the country has resulted in the recovery of 69 children and the arrest of 884 people, including 99 pimps, federal authorities said Monday….The three-day federal sweep, called Operation Cross Country V, involved 40 cities nationwide and is part of the Innocence Lost National Initiative, authorities said. “Child prostitution continues to be a significant problem in our country, as evidenced by the number of children rescued through the continued efforts of our crimes against children task forces,” said Shawn Henry, executive assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response and Service Branch, in a written statement.

Indictment: Somali gangs trafficked girls for sex November 8, 2010 By AMY FORLITI Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Twenty-nine people have been indicted in a sex trafficking ring in which Somali gangs in Minneapolis and St. Paul allegedly forced girls under age 14 into prostitution in Minnesota, Tennessee and Ohio, according to an indictment unsealed Monday. The 24-count indictment, unsealed in U.S. District Court in the Middle District of Tennessee, said one of the gangs’ goals was recruiting females under age 18, including some under age 14, and forcing them into prostitution so the defendants could get money, marijuana or liquor. The indictment details several instances in which young Somali or African American girls were taken from place to place and forced to engage in sex acts with multiple people. One girl was under 13 when she was first prostituted. Another girl was 18 when she was raped by multiple men in a hotel room, the indictment said.

“People need to know what these guys have done” Federal prosecutors cracked the child prostitution ring, opening a window onto a sordid underworld. They couldn’t have done it without one brave woman By Jenifer B. McKim – Globe Staff – October 10, 2010 It was one of the biggest child prostitution cases in state history, culminating last year in the conviction of six Boston pimps involved in a violent prostitution ring that enslaved girls from local neighborhoods….The case covered incidents that happened between 2001 and 2005, but the sexual exploitation of children for commercial gain remains a pervasive problem. In fact, advocates and authorities say it has grown more insidious in recent years. Street corners and alleys have been largely replaced by smartphones and websites, making it easier for solicitations and payments to take place out of police view. “It’s a modern form of slavery,”  said Susan Goldfarb, executive director of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Suffolk County, a program run in partnership with the district attorney’s office. At least once a week, the center receives a referral about a local child being used sexually to make someone else money. “This is a huge industry,” Goldfarb said….Nationwide, there are at least 100,000 children being exploited for paid sex, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. “A lot of Americans don’t think it is a problem here,” said John Shehan, executive director of the exploited child division of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. “It is happening in mainstream America. The only way not to find it is simply not to look for it.”
Spain ‘busts child pornography network’ 8 October 2010 – Police have arrested 57 people over child pornography allegations in Spain, including business owners and local police officers, the authorities say. Those detained in recent days include a gardener who had filmed relatives aged seven and 14 in sexual poses. Another 47 people have been placed under investigation as part of the same inquiry. The police said they carried out almost 100 raids across Spain after uncovering a file-sharing network.

Hundreds of Kenyan teachers sacked over sex abuse 7 October 2010 Most cases of abuse reported have occurred in rural schools More than 1,000 teachers have been sacked in Kenya for sexually abusing girls over the past two years, the authorities say. Senior government official Ahmed Hussein told the BBC that most of the victims were aged between 12 and 15….Last year, 600 male teachers were dismissed and so far this year 550 teachers have lost their jobs for either kissing, touching or impregnating girls out a total teaching staff of 240,000 countrywide.

1,000 Kenyan Teachers Fired for Sexually Abusing Young Girls – Firing of Teachers Underscores the Bigger Problem of Sexual Abuse in Africa By DANA HUGHES NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct. 8, 2010 More than 1,000 teachers have been fired for sexually abusing girls over the last two years, according to a new report from the Kenyan government. Last year, 600 teachers were dismissed over allegations of sexual abuse, and 500 more have been let go this year. The allegations range from inappropriate kissing and touching to impregnating girls as young as 12. Although the number of reported cases represents less than half of 1 percent of Kenya’s 240,000 teachers, the firings underscore a serious epidemic of sexual abuse in the country, say child advocacy and women’s rights groups. “In this year’s report of abuse in relation to children, sexual violence topped the list at 86 percent,” said Brian Weke, the program manager of the Cradle, a Kenyan child advocacy group….Ahmed Hussein, the director of children’s services at the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development, told the BBC. Hussein said that some of the teachers had already been arrested and prosecuted. Many, however, were simply fired and sent home.

UN envoy says over 15,000 raped in eastern Congo By Edith M. Lederer, AP Writer – Oct 15, 2010 UNITED NATIONS – More than 15,000 people were raped in the volatile eastern region of Congo last year, according to the best data available, the top U.N. envoy in the African nation said Friday. Roger Meece, who heads the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Congo, said the scale of the security problems in the east, including sexual attacks, is “enormous.” Meece told the U.N. Security Council that the “horrific” mass rapes in late July and early August by rebel militias in eastern Congo’s mineral-rich Walikale region underscored the importance of protecting civilians….Somewhat different but equally troubling figures were provided by the U.N. Population Fund, which determined there were 17,507 sexual violence attacks throughout Congo in 2009 – including more than 9,000 in North and South Kivu which have been at the center of the conflict in the east.

describes crimes Tears of Woman Guilty of Sex Attacks on Baby October 19, 2010 By John Twomey A PERVERTED woman care worker faced a long jail sentence last night after she was found guilty of involvement in one of Britain’s worst child-sex rings. Tracy Dawber gasped “Oh, no!” as she was found guilty of sexually assaulting a five-month-old baby while ringleader Colin Blanchard took photographs. As a jury found her guilty of five related charges, the 44-year-old started crying and shaking.
Dawber, a grandmother, was the fourth female member of Blanchard’s paedophile network to be convicted of “sickening” offences against children….Blanchard, 40, who has admitted 19 child-sex charges, gave evidence against her, accusing her of taking the lead. Police searched her desktop computer and discovered word searches including pre-teen, Lolita and a file containing 50 stories on incest. The pair started a relationship after meeting on the internet….
Crown Prosecution Service lawyer Ann Reddrop said: “Colin Blanchard turned out to be an evil man who controlled four women in one of the most sickening paedophile rings this country has seen. “He encouraged these women to take and share ever more horrific images of the sexual abuse of children. As if that was not bad enough, he encouraged them to physically abuse children to produce those pictures.” Detectives investigated Blanchard’s network after Greater Manchester Police found images of child abuse on his computer.

Collusion: the Dark History of the Duplessis Orphans a Canadian Genocide “I, Rod Vienneau and my wife, Clarina Duguay, have written more than two thousand letters demanding justice on behalf of the Duplessis Orphans who include, in Quebec: orphans held in psychiatric institutions, farm orphans, orphans of Huberdeau, orphans imprisoned in Bordeaux without trial, first nations (Amerindian) children from different reservations and those coming from practically every orphanage. It is a conspiracy of silence beyond belief that has pushed me to write a book about this case. Thousands of orphans have been kept prisoner illegally here in Quebec, in psychiatric hospitals, in psychiatric sanatoriums and in the Bordeaux prison….from the 1930’s until 1975…My long research has led me far beyond the borders of Quebec — first around Canada, of course, but also to Germany, England and the United States. The latter must be mentioned because they have a very key role in the fate which these children of the past, in Quebec, but also elsewhere, were to meet.”  Author : Rod Vienneau  Title in French : Les enfants de la Grande Noir ceur Bibliothèque Nationale de Québec ISBN : 978-2-9809870-0-7

Survivorship Surveys – We are listing the results of two surveys of the membership conducted by Survivorship.

Survey: Men, Women, and Ritual Abuse – In July, 2003, Survivorship conducted a survey of its members to compare brothers and sisters of survivors across various parameters. The results, which were published in Volume 12 Number 1 of the Survivorship Journal, and the questionnaire are reproduced below….25 people, all survivors, returned questionnaires. Five were men. These people had 23 brothers and 27 sisters, for a total of 27 men and 48 women (75 in all)….Survivors ranged in age from 23 to 66, with the average being 42. Brothers ranged from 9 to 64, average 33, and sisters from 12 to 69, average 44. Men were more likely to be married. 78% of them were married (average. 2.0 kids) while 50% of the survivors were married (average 1.2 kids), and 46% of the sisters were married (average 1.6 kids). The educational level was quite high. Survivors ranged from 7 to 22 years of schooling, with an average of 15.9 years; brothers, 7 to 18 years, average 15.3 years; and sisters 11 to 22, average 15.4. However, all but one of the men (and the two kids) were self-supporting, whereas only 58% of the survivors and 67% of the sisters were. Survivors were equally likely to be in touch with brothers (41%) and sisters (44%). Of the survivors, only 48% were in touch with their parents versus 89% of the brothers and 89% of the sisters were in touch with their parents. Everybody was described as abused, except for two sisters (9%). 83% of the survivors said they remembered the abuse, but they thought that only 15% of the brothers and 23% of the sisters did. 75% of the survivors said they were DID and 25% DDNOS, while 54% of the brothers were described as DID and 46% DDNOS, and only one sister was described as DID and six as DDNOS. Over all, 85% of the brothers, 75% of the sisters, and 61% of the survivors were considered as being in good health. 33% of the brothers, 14% of the sisters, and 16% of the survivors were seen as alcoholic and 20% of the brothers, 14% of the sisters, and 4% of the survivors as drug addicted. Only one person was imprisoned, a female survivor. Eating disorders were surprisingly high among all three groups: 68% for survivors, 56% for men, and 67% for sisters. A study comparing eating disorder rates among both male and female RA survivors, incest survivors, and controls would be very interesting. One female survivor reported that she might still be involved. Of the brothers, 77% were thought to be still involved, and of the sisters, 54%.

Survivorship 1993 Survey: Geographical Location of Abuse – In July 1993, Survivorship conducted a survey of its members. They were asked their diagnosis, the names of the cult/sects/which abused them, and the location of their abuse. They were also asked if they had moved to escape the abuse and, if so, whether they encountered cult activity in their new location. 506 questionnaires were returned and 919 locations were reported….We have tabulated all locations in which survey responders reported abuse; the results are summarized below. Abuse was reported in 23 countries and all states except Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Tennessee.

Obama Interrogation Official Linked to U.S. Mind Control Research By Jeffrey Kaye  The Public Record May 25th, 2010 A new article at Truthout I co-wrote with author and investigative journalist H.P. Albarelli describes how the CIA’s Artichoke Project was the contemporaneous and operational side of the MK-ULTRA mind control research program. It was not superceded by MK-ULTRA in the 1950s, as often supposed. Even more, Artichoke-derived methods of using drugs, hypnosis, sensory deprivation and overload, behavioral modification techniques and other methods of mind control have resurfaced as a primary component of U.S. interrogation practice. The Truthout article includes some amazing revelations, including the largest description to date of the roles of then-Ford administration officials Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld in working hand-in-glove with the CIA to suppress information on Artichoke from surfacing….APA, CIA: “How might we overload the system or overwhelm the senses…?” Another instance in which the curtain was pulled back on mind control research by the U.S. government involved the online description by the American Psychological Association (APA) of a CIA and Rand Corporation workshop which it co-sponsored in July 2003 at Rand’s Arlington, Virginia headquarters. The event was attended by approximately 40 research psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, as well as “representatives from the CIA, FBI and Department of Defense with interests in intelligence operations.” One of these workshops, ostensibly on detection of deception, specifically described how participants should consider “sensory overloads on the maintenance of deceptive behaviors, including the use of pharmacological agents. “How might we,” the workshop asked, “overload the system or overwhelm the senses and see how it affects deceptive behaviors?”

Welcome to, official web site of The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil (Random House, 2007). In this book, I summarize more than 30 years of research on factors that can create a “perfect storm” which leads good people to engage in evil actions. This transformation of human character is what I call the “Lucifer Effect,” named after God’s favorite angel, Lucifer, who fell from grace and ultimately became Satan. Rather than providing a religious analysis, however, I offer a psychological account of how ordinary people sometimes turn evil and commit unspeakable acts. As part of this account, The Lucifer Effect tells, for the first time, the full story behind the Stanford Prison Experiment, a now-classic study I conducted in 1971. In that study, normal college students were randomly assigned to play the role of guard or inmate for two weeks in a simulated prison, yet the guards quickly became so brutal that the experiment had to be shut down after only six days.

The book Mind Daddy by TJ Griffith tells of the little-known phenomenon of childhood mind control from a survivor’s point of view. Her remarkable effort to break free from the overwhelming burden of being totally controlled presents a fresh voice toward understanding and overcoming the ramifications of severe child abuse. Mind Daddy is a deeply moving journey through a woman’s lonely struggle to rise from the abyss of deep despair and loss. Enduring humiliating belittlement and forced into absolute submission by her step-father, she is required to live a dual life: outside in the real world where she must hide what’s going on, and also under the oppressive authority of Mind Daddy, a ruthless disciplinarian inserted into her subconscious mind through torture-based mind control by utilizing techniques involving physical and sexual abuse, starvation, isolation and excruciating pain to control of her every movement.  Experiencing unimaginable highs and lows, she ultimately survives by understanding that all things work together for good: her life is meant to teach others to listen, be aware and protect the children.

Nazis Were Given Safe Haven in U.S., Report Says By ERIC LICHTBLAU Published: November 13, 2010 WASHINGTON – A secret history of the United States government’s Nazi-hunting operation concludes that American intelligence officials created a ”safe haven” in the United States for Nazis and their collaborators after World War II, and it details decades of clashes, often hidden, with other nations over war criminals here and abroad. The 600-page report, which the Justice Department has tried to keep secret for four years, provides new evidence about more than two dozen of the most notorious Nazi cases of the last three decades.  It describes the government’s posthumous pursuit of Dr. Josef Mengele, the so-called Angel of Death at Auschwitz, part of whose scalp was kept in a Justice Department official’s drawer; the vigilante killing of a former Waffen SS soldier in New Jersey; and the government’s mistaken identification of the Treblinka concentration camp guard known as Ivan the Terrible….
The full report disclosed that the Justice Department found “a smoking gun” in 1997 establishing with “definitive proof” that Switzerland had bought gold from the Nazis that had been taken from Jewish victims of the Holocaust. But these references are deleted, as are disputes between the Justice and State Departments over Switzerland’s culpability in the months leading up to a major report on the issue. Another section describes as “a hideous failure” a series of meetings in 2000 that United States officials held with Latvian officials to pressure them to pursue suspected Nazis. That passage is also deleted. So too are references to macabre but little-known bits of history, including how a director of the O.S.I. kept a piece of scalp that was thought to belong to Dr. Mengele in his desk in hopes that it would help establish whether he was dead. The chapter on Dr. Mengele, one of the most notorious Nazis to escape prosecution, details the O.S.I.’s elaborate efforts in the mid-1980s to determine whether he had fled to the United States and might still be alive. It describes how investigators used letters and diaries apparently written by Dr. Mengele in the 1970s, along with German dental records and Munich phone books, to follow his trail.

Report details U.S. role in hunting, hiding Nazis Eric Lichtblau, New York Times November 14, 2010 A secret history of the U.S. government’s Nazi-hunting operation concludes that American intelligence officials created a “safe haven” in the United States for Nazis and their collaborators after World War II, and it details decades of clashes, often hidden, with other nations over war criminals here and abroad. The 600-page report, which the Justice Department has tried to keep secret for four years, provides new evidence about more than two dozen of the most notorious Nazi cases of the last three decades….The Justice Department report, describing what it calls “the government’s collaboration with persecutors,” says that OSI investigators learned that some of the Nazis “were indeed knowingly granted entry” to the United States, even though government officials were aware of their pasts….
The Justice Department has resisted making the report public since 2006. Under the threat of a lawsuit, it turned over a heavily redacted version last month to a private research group, the National Security Archive, but even then many of the most legally and diplomatically sensitive portions were omitted. A complete version was obtained by the New York Times.
The Justice Department said the report, the product of six years of work, was never formally completed and did not represent its official findings. It cited “numerous factual errors and omissions,” but declined to say what they were. More than 300 Nazi persecutors have been deported, stripped of citizenship or blocked from entering the United States since the creation of the OSI, which was merged with another unit this year. The Justice Department itself sometimes concealed what U.S. officials knew about Nazis in this country, the report found. In 1980, prosecutors filed a motion that “misstated the facts” in asserting that checks of CIA and FBI records revealed no information on the Nazi past of Tscherim Soobzokov, a former Waffen SS soldier. In fact, the report said, the Justice Department “knew that Soobzokov had advised the CIA of his SS connection after he arrived in the United States.”

The New York Times – Secret Justice Department Report Details How the U.S. Helped Former Nazis  – An internal history of the United States government’s Nazi-hunting operation provides gripping new evidence about some of the most notorious Nazi cases of the last three decades. The Justice Department kept the 600-page report secret for the last four years, releasing a heavily redacted version last month to a private research group that sued to force its release. A complete version was obtained by The New York Times.  Http://

CIA Must Disclose Data on Human Experiments By ANNIE YOUDERIAN  11/17/10 (CN) – A federal magistrate judge in San Francisco ordered the CIA to produce specific records and testimony about the human experiments the government allegedly conducted on thousands of soldiers from 1950 through 1975. Three veterans groups and six individual veterans sued the CIA and other government agencies, claiming they used about 7,800 soldiers as human guinea pigs to research biological, chemical and psychological weapons. The experiments, many of which took place at Edgewood Arsenal and Fort Detrick in Maryland, allegedly exposed test subjects to chemicals, drugs and electronic implants. Though the soldiers volunteered, they never gave informed consent, because the government didn’t fully disclose the risks, the veterans claimed. They were also required to sign an oath of secrecy, according to the complaint. The veterans filed three sets of document requests to find out who was tested, what substances they were given, and how it affected them. Between October and April, the government produced about 15,000 pages of heavily redacted records, most of which related to the named plaintiffs only. The CIA argued that much of the information requested was protected under the Privacy Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. U.S. Magistrate Judge James Larson acknowledged that some of the requests were too broad and ordered the veterans to be more specific and to reduce the total number of requests. For example, Larson said the plaintiffs’ definition of “test program” is “overbroad,” as it not only named experimental programs like “Bluebird,” “Artichoke” and “MKUltra,” but also included “any other program of experimentation involving human testing of any substance, including but not limited to ‘MATERIAL TESTING PROGRAM EA 1729.'”
He ordered the veterans to provide a list of specific test programs and test substances. But once the plaintiffs narrow their requests, Larson said, they are entitled to most of the information. Each government agency must respond individually to each request, he said, and if an agency denies any request, it must explain — in sufficient detail — why the records are purportedly privileged….Larson….then addressed which topics are fair game for deposition, saying the government must produce witnesses to testify about the following: communication between the VA and test subjects on their health care claims; a 1963 CIA Inspector General report on an experiment called MKUltra, and the basis for each redaction on that report; the scope and conduct of document searches; the doses and effects of substances administered to test subjects; any contract or research proposals concerning the experiments; a confidential Army memo about the use of volunteers in research; all government-led human experiments from 1975 to date, but only those that involve specific drugs; and whether the government secretly administered MKUltra materials to “the patrons of prostitutes” in safe houses in New York and San Francisco, as the veterans claimed. Judge Larson ruled for the CIA on other issues, however, saying the agency’s not required to testify about test subjects who withdrew their consent or refused to participate; devices allegedly implanted into certain test subjects; the alleged use of patients at VA hospitals as guinea pigs in chemical and biological weapons experiments; or the drug research studies conducted by Dr. Paul Hoch, who was purportedly funded by the government and caused the death of a patient named Harold Blauer.

CIA brain experiments pursued in veterans’ suit By Jeff Stein  11/24/2010 The CIA is notorious for its Cold War-era experiments with LSD and other chemicals on unwitting citizens and soldiers. Details have emerged in books and articles beginning more than 30 years ago. But if military veterans have their way in a California law suit, the spy agency’s quest to turn humans into robot-like assassins via electrodes planted in their brains will get far more exposure than the drugs the CIA tested on subjects ranging from soldiers to unwitting bar patrons and the clients of prostitutes….In 1961, a top CIA scientist reported in an internal memo that “the feasibility of remote control of activities in several species of animals has been demonstrated…
Special investigations and evaluations will be conducted toward the application of selected elements of these techniques to man,” according to The CIA and the Search for the Manchurian Candidate, a 1979 book by former State Department intelligence officer John Marks. “[T]his cold-blooded project,” Marks wrote, was designed…for the delivery of chemical and biological agents or for “executive action-type operations,” according to a document. Executive action was the CIA’s euphemism for assassination. The CIA pursued such experiments because it was convinced the Soviets were doing the same.
Victims have sought justice for years, in vain. Now, almost 40 years later, a federal magistrate has ordered the CIA to produce records and witnesses about the LSD and other experiments “allegedly conducted on thousands of soldiers from 1950 through 1975,” according to news accounts. U.S. Magistrate Judge John Larsen’s Nov. 17 order exempted the agency from having to testify about electrode tests on humans, but Gordon P. Erspamer, lead attorney for the veterans, says “we are pursuing this as well.”
“There is no question that these experiments were done,” Erspamer said by e-mail Tuesday, “but defendants say that they used private researchers and test subjects drawn from prisons, hospitals and nursing homes as subjects, not active duty military [personnel]. CIA said it had no one knowledgeable on this topic.” Erspamer, senior counsel in the San Francisco office of Morrison & Foerster, said “several” CIA witnesses are…still alive, naming some that have been publicly identified, but opting to keep secret others before he calls them. Papers filed in the case describe “electrical devices implanted in brain tissue with electrodes in various regions, including the hippocampus, the hypothalamus, the frontal lobe (via the septum), the cortex and various other places,” Erspamer said, drawing on [research papers] ( written by government scientists….”A lot of this work was done out of Tulane University using a local state hospital and funding from a cut-out (front) organization called the Commonwealth Fund,” he continued, again drawing on the research papers. “We tried to get docs from Tulane, but they told us that they were destroyed in the hurricane flooding.”

Follow Up with Truddi Chase – The Oprah Winfrey Show  October 06, 2010 One of the most unforgettable guests in Oprah Show history was Truddi Chase, a woman living with 92 distinct personalities. Truddi’s condition – now called dissociative identity disorder, or DID – was caused by years of brutal sexual abuse by her stepfather that started when she was just 2 years old.

The Woman with 92 Personalities The Oprah Winfrey Show  June 11, 2010 Before she started hosting her nationally televised show, Oprah had a local talk show in Baltimore. One of her first guests on that Baltimore show was Truddi Chase, a woman who, after suffering sexual abuse by her stepfather that started when she was 2 years old, split into 92 distinct personalities. “This is a story like no other that you will ever hear,” Oprah says. Truddi talks about the abuse and her recovery in her book When Rabbit Howls. Her life story was made into a made-for-television movie starring Shelly Long called The Voices Within: The Lives of Truddi Chase.

Interviewing a Person with Multiple Personalities The Oprah Winfrey Show  October 06, 2010 Oprah Show producer Kirsten Williams traveled to London to interview Kim Noble, a woman with dissociative identity disorder – formerly called multiple identity disorder – and ended up speaking with eight personalities. Read her account of what this experience was like….How many of the 20 personalities did you meet? Over four days, I met “Patricia,” “Judy,” “Bonny,” “Ken,” “Ria,” “Dawn,” “Salome” and “Missy.” Was there a visible process Kim went through when a different personality was about to take over? The change could be as subtle as a blink of an eye. Other times it was similar to when you are nodding off to sleep and you catch yourself to wake up. The transition back to “Patricia” was harder to detect. Sometimes I would be talking to one “alter,” and then Aimee or “Patricia” would start laughing because “Patricia” was back, and I didn’t know it. Pretty soon, I got the hang of it.

More than one third of women abused or forced into sex: UN (AFP) – Oct 12, 2010 UNITED NATIONS – More than a third of all women in the world have been forced into sex, beaten or abused by a partner or family member, a top UN official said Tuesday. Zou Xiaoqaio, vice-chairwoman of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women said that sexual violence was increasing around the world despite major campaigns by the UN and other bodies….”At least one every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or abused in some other way, usually by an intimate partner or family member,” Zou told a press conference at the UN headquarters, quoting a new report by the UN Population Fund. “Women continue to be raped and subject to other forms of sexual violence with impunity all over the world,” she said, highlighting how, in some countries, rape charges against an offender can be dropped if he marries the victim. “Women and girls are still being sold for sex around the world. Two million girls between the ages of five and 15 are introduced into the commercial sex market each year.” also at:

Childhood Sexual Abuse May Raise Risk for Psychosis November 02, 2010 Childhood sexual abuse involving penetration appears to increase the risk of developing psychotic disorders later in life, according to research published in the November issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry. TUESDAY, Nov. 2 (HealthDay News) — Childhood sexual abuse involving penetration appears to increase the risk of developing psychotic disorders later in life, according to research published in the November issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry.
Margaret C. Cutajar, of Monash University in Clifton Hill, Australia, and colleagues studied mental health data on 2,759 subjects who had been sexually abused as children, matched with community-based controls, to explore whether childhood sexual abuse raises the risk for subsequent psychotic disorders.
The researchers found rates for general psychosis, and particularly for schizophrenic disorders, significantly higher in the childhood sexual abuse subjects than in the controls (2.8 versus 1.4 percent for general psychosis and 1.9 versus 0.7 percent for schizophrenic disorders in abuse subjects and controls, respectively). Risk for later psychosis was highest in those whose abuse occurred after age 12, involved penetration, and involved more than one perpetrator. Abuse without penetration was not related to significant increases in general psychosis or schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders in a Cohort of Sexually Abused Children Margaret C. Cutajar, DPsych, MAPS; Paul E. Mullen, DSc, FRANZCP, FRCPsych; James R. P. Ogloff, PhD; Stuart D. Thomas, PhD; David L. Wells, MA, FACLM; Josie Spataro, PhD, MAPS Arch Gen Psychiatry. 2010;67(11):1114-1119. doi:10.1001/archgenpsychiatry.2010.147…. Setting – Sample drawn from all notified cases of child sexual abuse over a 30-year period in Victoria, Australia. Participants – A cohort of 2759 individuals ascertained as having been sexually abused when younger than 16 years had their subsequent contacts with mental health services established by data linkage. They were compared with a community-based control group matched on sex and age groupings whose rates of disorder were established using identical methods. Main Outcome Measures – Rates of psychotic and schizophrenic illnesses.
Results – Rates were significantly higher among child sexual abuse subjects compared with controls for psychosis in general (2.8% vs 1.4%; odds ratio, 2.1; 95% confidence interval, 1.4-3.1; P < .001) and schizophrenic disorders in particular (1.9% vs 0.7%; odds ratio, 2.6; 95% confidence interval, 1.6-4.4; P < .001). Those exposed to penetrative abuse had even higher rates of psychosis (3.4%) and schizophrenia (2.4%).
