DEVELOPING: 14 Or More Jeffrey Epstein Victims Willing To Testify

In a developing story being covered by Zero Hedge and others in greater detail, it appears 14 or more victims have come forward at the request of the FBI and lawyers representing the existing known alleged victims of Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire Democrat pedophile.

Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on new charges out of New York last weekend.

Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on new charges out of New York last weekend.

As the Miami Herald reported, “Following Epstein’s arrest Saturday in New Jersey, four women have reached out to New York lawyer David Boies, and at least 10 other women have approached other lawyers who have represented dozens of Epstein’s alleged victims in the past.”

This seems to be yet another substantial dent in the armor of the well-connected billionaire pedophile Epstein, who is known to be friends with the Clintons and many others in positions of power.

The case is being handled by the public corruption unit in New York, with assistance from the FBI and NYPD reportedly, leading many to believe the Epstein blackmail safe may implicate big names in politics, finance, or entertainment.

Truth: it’s stranger than fiction. Welcome to 2019.

Make no mistake, Epstein and Podesta ran in the same circles, with the Clintons at the epicenter of both. This is PizzaGate, and we are now massively vindicated. Yet, it’s only Wednesday, and many surprises are in store.

Epstein and Podesta will be infamous.

Epstein and Podesta will be infamous.

Watch today’s show, where I talk about rapidly rising mainstream media interest in the Podesta / Epstein super-scandal known as Pedogate, or “PizzaGate,” originally when it broke back in late 2016 around the use of “pizza” in John Podesta’s WikiLeaks.

Pedogate: What Did Avicii Know?

On April 20th, famous Swedish EDM DJ Avicii reportedly died in Muscat, Oman. Mainstream media has claimed it as an apparent suicide, family members stated in a letter to the press, “He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.” There were no significant details until just recently, however. According to TMZ, sources now say he committed suicide with shards of glass from a wine bottle. One source said it was a cut to his neck, another one says it was to his wrist. While many will speculate on his death, it is important to look at his life, his artistry and what he attempted to display to the world.

Avicii was suffering from a lengthy battle with acute pancreatitis caused by excessive and chronic alcohol consumption, a common issue with celebrities. Many artists have explained their drug and alcohol usage as a method utilized to deal with the industry and soothe their mental afflictions or disorders. But is this merely due to their sensitive, artistic nature, or a product of a sick and dysfunctional environment? 

Born Tim Bergling, he became known as “Avicii” which is a term used to describe the “lowest level of the Naraka or ‘hell’ realm where the dead who have committed grave misdeeds may be reborn. Avici is considered a Hot Naraka where beings are roasted in an enormous fiery oven with terrible suffering. People sent to Avici Hell are considered criminals of the highest degree. These are people who commit one or more of the “5 Grave Offenses” including killing one’s mother or killing one’s father.

Just last year Avicii was reportedly talking about undergoing a “moment of spiritual rebirth,” he was traveling the world and relaunching his life and career. He appeared to have a different, more improved outlook on life. Avicii’s brother, David Bergling, informed media outlets that he was going to Oman to “seek answers” surrounding this sudden death. Bergling is staying only a few miles from Muscat Hills, where Avicii is said to have died. Swedish outlets reported Avicii had checked out of Muscat Hills the week before this tragedy, another reason why Bergling would want to look into the days leading up to his brother's untimely death.

His other family members such as half-brother, Anton Korberg, has not joined this search for answers. After newly released hits such as “For Every Step” with Dead By April, Anton’s father Tommy Korberg remains a famous celebrity. He made a brief statement, “I’ve known him since he was little...It’s tragic, considering his mother and brother.” Fans have also speculated on several pictures taken prior to his death in which he appears to have a bruised right eye.

Muscat, Oman has become a hotspot for human trafficking activity as many transits from India, the Philippines and others find themselves there. 

The past few years Royal Oman officials have made significant strides in order to slow down this activity, especially within recent times. Just last month hundreds were arrested for violating labor laws and human trafficking in Muscat.  According to the Daily Mail Muscat Hills (the luxury farmhouse believed to be where Avicii passed away) was said to belong to a relative of the Sultan of Oman. The same Royal Sultan who has issued major crackdowns in trafficking crimes. 

It has become well known Avicii was passionate about raising awareness regarding the child trafficking epidemic. He directed his own music video entitled “For A Better Day” in a graphic, yet powerful, display of the world of child trafficking. In the video, he shows 2 victims who were able to escape their traffickers; they later go on to slaughter all of those involved in the crimes. The survivors compile a list of all offenders, the last one is the politician who purchased and imprisoned them on what appeared to be a farm. One of the last scenes depicts an angry mob of people outside of the politician’s building, the 2 hooded vigilantes sneak in and brand the man with the word “Pedofile” on his back. They then hang him with a rope off of the building rooftop for all the outraged citizens to see.

Just as many artists before him, we may never know the exact details surrounding Avicii's death. However, we do know that whatever he did or was involved in, he attempted to turn his life around and highlight the epidemic known today as "modern day slavery." Millions of people have seen the "For A Better Day" music video and perhaps may look back on it to see the underlying message: Yes, there are currently politicians in our governments that are highly involved in child trafficking and it is time the rest of the world recognizes this horrific reality.

Franklin Scandal: The Original Pizzagate

***DISCLAIMER: GRAPHIC CONTENT AS TOLD BY ALLEGED CHILD ABUSE SURVIVORS***

      Currently, our government has a massive problem. The public no longer has faith in them, in fact, it has plummeted to all-time lows. According to Pew Research, only 20% of the American public believe the government does what is right always or most of the time. 68% believe they only do what is right some of the time and 11% say never. The public seems somewhat desensitized to the “typical” political scandals such as money-laundering or infidelity. Yet, there is one type of scandal continuously overlooked in the institutions of government. Satanic child abuse is not only currently entrenched in our government, but has been systematically covered up for decades. With the Pizzagate Scandal breaking a couple years ago, many of those researching and learning the crimes of our government for the first time have had their realities shattered. 

The Wikileaks emails opened up an entire new world into how today’s political elite use code language such as “pizza” and “hot dogs” to mask their criminal activities. However, this type of scandal is not an isolated incident by any means. The Franklin Coverup which occurred from the late 1980’s to the 1990’s was the original 'Pizzagate' of modern-day history.

In 1994, the documentary Conspiracy of Silence was reportedly canceled just prior to its scheduled debut on the Discovery Channel. The documentary recorded the journey of many Nebraska state officials, including decorated war veteran and former State Senator John DeCamp, and their uncovering of an alleged elite pedophile ring operating largely out of Omaha, Nebraska. The producers were especially interested in covering the story upon reading DeCamp’s book The Franklin Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska. The book explicitly details the beginnings of the case, who was involved and how it connects to ritualistic abuse. 

The story begins with Lawrence “Larry” King who had become “the fastest rising black star in the entire Republican Party." Decamps declares,

“He was also one of the most evil individuals in this country in terms of being a dealer of children, in terms of being a thief, $40 million that they documented he stole; and in terms of using and compromising and corrupting one after another politicians.”

The majority of Larry King’s wealth derived from the Franklin Credit Union in Omaha, Nebraska. He was hired on as a General Manager to help “salvage” the failing company. 

In the early 1980’s King developed close commercial ties to bank leaders, charities, industries and the national renown orphanage Boys Town. King often donated to the orphanage and was allowed to recruit their youth to work for his companies. DeCamp considers King to be the main perpetrator in corrupting Boys Town.

According to the documentary, an overwhelming amount of child abuse allegations stemming from Boys Town piqued the interest of Nebraska’s Foster Care Review Board. Foster Care Director Carol Stitt said,

“Larry King’s name was consistently present as someone that the youth were making allegations against.”

Stitt explained how she handed over all evidence against King’s alleged drug and child prostitution ring. The documentation was described to be “over a foot high,” yet no serious action was taken by authorities.

Top level law enforcement officials accused many of the young victims of lying. Two girls in particular, Nelly and Kimberly Webb, gave accounts of being forced to go to Larry King’s sex parties and being abused by his friends. They swiftly passed lie detector tests several times, yet were still labeled as liars. They described how King would make the Boys Town boys do yard work for him, and if they refused, they were beaten as punishment. Part of Nelly Webb’s testimony included allegations of child prostitution and pornography on a national scale. When she was 15, she frequently traveled the country with Mr. and Mrs. King as a babysitter for their son, Prince. She would supervise Prince as the Kings would host parties for high-level officials such as George H. W. Bush, who was Vice President at the time. At some of the parties, she claims to have witnessed the “sodomy of younger men and older men.” 

Another survivor came forward by the name of Loretta Smith. At the age of 9, Smith described to police officials that she was, along with her childhood friends, lured away from the Girls’ Club in Omaha. Employees at the Girl’s Club would often lead them off property and escort them on outings. Over the course of several weeks, they were slowly introduced to narcotics and alcohol. Eventually, Loretta states, they found themselves in the midst of sex parties with older men. In her testimony, the girls “got all wasted” and they did not have a choice with whom they slept. In the same network of people, she was introduced to the practice of devil worshipping.

Loretta describes in gruesome detail the activities of the cult, including witnessing the homicides of several young children.

According to The Franklin Scandal, Foster Care Director Stitt also believed this account to be “highly credible.” Loretta explains how the cult consistently “tested” her. In one incident, she witnessed the killing and disfigurement of an infant girl’s body. Another time she described a ceremony in which a small boy was sacrificed, afterward, she claims the ritual included cannibalism. The information Loretta disclosed to the Omaha police and hospital staff corroborated evidence authorities already compiled from separate cases. One Omaha police officer expressed great interest in Loretta’s story. Career Officer Carmean also believed Loretta to be credible and demanded further investigation in his testimony to the Legislative Franklin Committee. Less than 2 weeks after his testimony, Police Chief Waldman attempted to Officer Carmean declared mentally insane. The attempt was a failure, however, Carmean was then transferred immediately out of the department. 

Alisha Owen, Paul Bonacci, Danny King and Troy Boner all became key witnesses in the case against Larry King and his criminal empire. Alisha Owen recounts being only 15 when she found herself involved in one of King’s sex parties. The party included 20 minors and 6 adult men, one of them was identified by Owen as Police Chief Robert Wadman. During the party, she states Wadman forced her to perform sexual acts on him. He went on to sexually abuse her for weeks following the initial account. Owen became deeply ensnared in King’s operation, as many of her Boys Town friends were involved. She recalls being afraid to leave because, as with all of the other victims, she was threatened and beaten by Larry King or one of his henchman. Before long, Owen found herself being a drug courier for King. Her and her friends, such as Troy Boner, were flown to several different cities for drug deals. They were also used in prostitution and pornography for numerous affluential people including businessmen and even judges. 

Private Investigator and retired state patrolman, Gary Caradori, was hired by the newly formed Legislative Franklin Committee to further investigate the allegations; since law enforcement failed to do so. Caradori recorded 30 hours of testimony from Alisha Owen and others regarding the case. Troy Boner told Caradori that it was his duty to recruit children from Boys Town for Larry King. Troy and Danny King were forced to perform sexual acts on other children, witnessed the sale of minors and were themselves sexually assaulted by older men.

Paul Bonacci testified to perhaps some of the most horrific stories yet. He was forced to go on 200-300 trips for King, starting at the age of 8. In one account, Bonacci and another boy named Nicholas were flown to Sacramento and taken to a remote location. When they entered the room they discovered a young boy locked inside of a cage not wearing any clothes. Forced at gun point, Nicholas and Paul had to physically assault the child for approximately 30 minutes. The boy was also reportedly sexually assaulted repeatedly and then murdered. The body was dumped in the woods where the “men with hoods” would take care it. The “men with hoods” were described as a satanic group which planned to use the corpse in a ceremony. Paul Bonacci explained, the entire event was filmed by a man they later picked up in Las Vegas who called himself “Hunter Thompson.”

The location Bonnaci described was found by DeCamp to have closely resembled the Bohemian Grove.

After the testimonies were gathered, Cardori worked tirelessly on the case despite the increasing safety risks. Caradori and Senator Loran Schmit (leading the committee) were both receiving phone calls warning them to “stand down.” Schmit was told this "reaches the highest level of government" and to "be a good Republican" by ceasing all action. 

In 1990, as the investigation was in progress, Caradori and his son were killed in a plane crash. At the time of his death, he was known to be pursuing 2 tracks: The Washington D.C. connection and satanism. His family believed the FBI, who was staunchly against the investigation, had everything to do with the plane crash that was said to have “exploded mid-air.” 

Simultaneously, Paul Rodriguez of The Washington Times reported “Homosexual Prostitution Inquiry Ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush.” According to the article, the clients of the Call Boy Prostitution Ring included high-level elites in government, military, bankers, and businessmen. It explains in more detail,

“The investigation is said to be focused on illegal interstate prostitution, abduction and use of minors for sexual perversion.”  

This coincides with Bonacci’s story of King providing young boys to powerful officials. According to the documentary, he claims there was a special name for boys provided under the age of 10 known as “The Golden Boys.” Craig Spence was thought to be business partners with Larry King who were operating the prostitution ring. Soon following the release of the story, Spence turned up dead in an alleged suicide. It was the latest in a series of deaths of those linked to the Iran-contra scandal.  

On June 21, 1991, Alisha Owen was pronounced guilty by a local grand jury. She was charged with 8 counts of perjury for refusing to recant her story and sentenced up to 25 years in prison. Paul Bonacci also refused to recant his story and was charged with 3 counts of perjury. According to the key witnesses, the FBI was able to get Troy Boner and Danny King to testify against Owen and Bonacci by threatening them. Troy was resilient until the death of Investigator Caradori and his own brother, then he finally submitted to their pressure. They accused Alisha Owen of lying and concocting the entire story. Larry King received a meek sentence of up to 10 years jail time for fraud in relation to the Franklin Credit Union. He was never subpoenaed for the sexual allegation case.

John DeCamp continued fighting throughout the years to investigate this scandal further and fight for Alisha. DeCamp eventually connected it to the “Monarch Project.” In his findings, especially with Paul Bonacci, the ring leaders would torture the children so horrifically that their minds would “shatter” until multiple personalities were created. They would usually begin by getting them addicted to narcotics and, in the end, personalities could be programmed as desired to be spies, drug mules, prostitutes or assassins. Much of the problem appeared to have grown out of the Iran Contra scandal.

In the U.S. House and Senate Joint Hearings in 1987, it was revealed Vice President George H. W. Bush played a central role in the massive influx of narcotics pouring across the borders. Bush was responsible for the anti-drug effort, yet at the same time tons of narcotics were supplied to gangs by CIA affiliated networks. 

DeCamp found that Larry King played a major role in drug-peddling in the country which is partially why he remained fairly untouchable. He was reportedly backed by key players including Omaha multibillionaire Warren Buffett, Alan Baer, Harold Andersen of World Herald, Mutual of Omaha and several others. Once allegations broke, it is said that King attempted to meet with George H.W. Bush for assistance but was immediately institutionalized for a temporary period of time.  

CONCLUSION: 

    Larry King passed away on July 22, 2009. In late 2003, Troy Boner walked into a New Mexico hospital shouting “they’re after me, they’re after me because of this book.” He was referencing The Franklin Cover-Up. The next morning he was found deceased with a mouth full of blood. Former FBI L.A. Bureau Chief Ted Gunderson attempted to receive his autopsy results but was denied any access. John DeCamp passed away July 2017 at the state Veterans Home in Norfolk; there are no updated records on Paul Bonacci.

It is assumed that Alisha Owen was released in the early 2000’s yet, there are also no records to prove that. None of the numerous people said to have been involved in the ring were charged.

As Senator Loran Schmit tearfully concludes: 

“I was disappointed how the FBI and law enforcement treated the victims...It has shaken my faith in the institutions of government.”

BACKPAGE: Online Child Trafficking Protected By Google, Government & George Soros

***UPDATE***

Backpage officially pleads guilty to human trafficking in the Texas case. According to the newly released court documents from United States Of America v. Michael Lacey, Backpage founder Lacey has been coordinating with Perkins Coie. Perkins Coie is the law firm which represents the DNC and allegedly funneled money to Fusion GPS for the Russian dossier. Could Backpage be the company that takes them all down?

Popular sex advertising website Backpage.com was shut down and seized on Friday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. According to the notification, the website and its affiliates were seized under the enforcement of several other agencies including the U.S Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona, the Internal Revenue Service, and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section. The founders of Backpage, Michael Lacey, Jim Larkin, and CEO Carl Ferrer, have been fighting a slew of legal battles the past few years. The owners are consistently accused of facilitating human trafficking on their website in a variety of different methods. 

The documentary film I am Jane Doe presents a detailed journey of multiple child sex trafficking victims and their families fighting for justice. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) 75% of child sex trafficking reports were derived from Backpage. Due to these numbers, this makes it the #1 used website for online child trafficking. For years, Backpage has been known to be a site in which sex traffickers gained easy access for the advertisement of women and children, making it a magnet for online trafficking crimes.

i-am-jane-doe-header-small.jpg

In one personal story, a mother named Kubiiki Pride found her missing 13 year old daughter on Backpage with provocative pictures of her posted in the escorts section. Kubiiki Pride was forced to purchase her daughter back from the trafficker in order to secure her safe return home. Her trafficker was later jailed, however, Pride also expressed great concern for the website which remained unaccountable. After reaching out to the company, Pride states they refused to take down the explicit photographs of her daughter despite the imprisonment of her trafficker. Enraged at the inaction of the company, they decided to file a lawsuit claiming the site as well as parent company Village Voice Media Holdings, were complicit in the trafficking of children. Under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, it was ruled that Backpage should have no liability for the crimes committed on their site. Unfortunately, this was a common theme as the company continuously won numerous lawsuits in the past decade. Article Here

Lawyers working the cases were baffled, the company remaining unscathed seemed to be a “mystery.” But Backpage owners accumulated massive amounts of wealth over the years, making it nearly impossible to go up against them. In its initial stages, Backpage acquired a net income of $5 million annually; by 2015 they were making $153.8 million per year.

Attorney Erik Bauer, representing underage children who were advertised in Seattle, was finally able to get his case to the Washington State Supreme Court. Their argument was that the company was deeply involved with assisting the traffickers in the creation of their content. Backpage appeared to have “coached” the criminals into using particular wording as to remain undetected by law enforcement. Their posting rules seemingly provided guidelines for traffickers to continue with their criminal activities. For example, the site would recommend posters spell out telephone numbers in order to make it difficult for the FBI to track. Additionally, they would advise them to utilize prepaid cards instead of debit or credit cards to stay anonymous. Additionally, the “Banned Terms List” was altered frequently. In a feigned effort to “crack down” on traffickers, Backpage stated they utilized a list of banned terms for their site. These terms included words such as “Teen” or “School Girl.” Yet no sooner was the list implemented, it was then reversed. Other times, if the words were not unbanned, common code language was promoted as a clear depiction of young children. In the end, judges ruled that the website did not “maintain neutral policies.” One judge implied the company was a “partner in crime” just as if they owned a site hosting “snuff films.” Link Here  

By 2015, CEO Carl Ferrer was ordered to testify in front of a Senate Subcommittee on Child Trafficking. Ferrer disregarded his subpoena and failed to appear in court. He became one of the very few citizens to be held in Contempt of Congress. Meanwhile, a company-wide email was sent out laying off the majority of its moderators and advising to seek council immediately, should they be asked to testify. Ferrer was eventually arrested, however, a judge ruled this violated the CDA 230 and promptly released him. 

In 2016, the Backpage founders and CEO found themselves in another legal bind with pimping charges coming from California’s then-Attorney General Kamala Harris. The case, however, was quickly swept under the rug. In October, co-founder Jim Larkin donated $10,000 to Nancy Pelosi super PAC (House Majority PAC), a committee which also contributed to Clinton’s 2016 Presidential Campaign. Merely 2 months later, the case was dropped by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Lawrence Brown who also cited CDA 230. According to The Washington Times, the owners have a history of being a major contributor in politics. Since 2010, they have been recorded as giving $99,000 to candidates and $95,000 to various Democratic parties. Link Here

Yet, politicians, judges, and super PACs aren't the only powerful entities who protected Backpage throughout the years. According to I am Jane Doe, several groups provided millions of dollars in financial support to Backpage during their legal battles. The main groups include the Electronic Frontier Foundation and The Center for Democracy and Technology. The Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) contains the following major institutions: 

AT&T, Facebook, Ford Foundation, Google, Inc. MacArthur Foundation, Markle Foundation, Microsoft, Yahoo, and even the George Soros backed Open Society Institute. 

The majority of them provided millions of dollars in support to a company with serious serial accusations of child trafficking facilitation. Soros’ Open Society Institute donated nearly $2 million dollars to the CDT in 2014 alone. In 2017, Consumer Watchdog compiled a 48 page report entitled “How Google’s Backing of BackPage Protects Child Sex Trafficking.”  Documents Here 

Google has also recently come under fire for insinuating child sex ads are “free speech.” They continuously refuse to distance themselves from Backpage even after a letter was sent to Eric Schmidt, Larry Page and Sundar Pichai from the parents of the victims pleading with them to cease their support.  

Now that the founders have been arrested following the raiding of their homes, there is much anticipation to see how many people this scandal will entrap and who will be the next major figure to fall. However, one thing is for certain. President Trump has taken the lead on halting the human trafficking epidemic; this is a fact the media can no longer hide. With 80% of the child trafficking victims being advertised on Backpage, this is an enormous blow to the child trafficking industry. As Trump said, he plans to put “the full weight” of the government behind stopping these criminals, including seizing the assets of serious human rights abusers as stated in the recently signed Executive Order #13818.
