SYSTEMIC PEDOPHILIA | PART 4
TRANSCRIPT & SOURCES
Throughout my investigative series covering systemic pedophilia, I have meticulously built a case that there exists rampant child trafficking for the purposes of pedophilia which is practiced in occult rituals at the highest levels of government by wealthy and powerful people. Moreover, these networks have concealed their presence through compromising members of the judicial system and law enforcement, silencing investigators and whistleblowers by any means necessary, and through employing symbolism and a code language to effectively hide in plain sight.
In Part Two of our investigation, linked below in the description, we discussed the sequence of events catalyzed by the Boston Globe’s famous exposé in 2002, the subsequent deluge of scandals revolving priests and clergymen all around the world, high profile arrests stretching all the way to the upper echelons of the Vatican, evidence that Pope Francis allegedly knew about the crisis and attempted to cover it up, testimony from a former 33rd degree Freemason fingering the San Gallo Mafia as a hotbed for pedophiles within the Church, whistleblower testimony from a former Argentine civil servant claiming that Pope Francis helped to illegally traffic the babies of prisoners of war, and the unbelievable yet true story about the Catholic Church’s role in illegally trafficking 300,000 Spanish babies over a 50 year period.
Today, we will once again put organized religion under the microscope and closely examine the systemic corruption, abuse, and implications of this hypocritical and compromised institution. We will attempt to establish with exactitude the prevalence of child abuse within the Church using the latest available data and figures. We will also discuss yet more evidence of the mass arrests occurring across the West, specifically in America, to finish the presentation on an optimistic note and to provide evidence and hope that the crisis may be slowly be coming to an end.
CHAPTER 1: ORGANIZED RELIGION
Examining the Full Scope of the Catholic Child Sex Abuse Scandal
In order to fully comprehend the global scope of the Catholic Church’s child sex abuse scandal, we need to gather data from several sources. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, no proper consolidation of international statistics has been compiled to paint a full picture as yet. However, several countries have compiled national statistics, while others are simply missing or woefully inadequate at best.
In 2014, the Vatican released information collected over a ten year period demonstrating that it had defrocked 848 priests, received a total of roughly 3,400 cases of sexual abuse allegations, and had sanctioned another 2,572 priests for lesser penalties. The Catholic News Service reported that there were roughly 410,000 Catholic priests worldwide in 2014. Therefore, the amount of offending priests represents less than 1% of the total amount of priests worldwide. However, this number is far from accurate.
While it is the case that 848 priests had been defrocked by the Vatican as of 2014, the child sex abuse scandal has been gaining more exposure and more accusations and hence more overall momentum in the years since.
“Before 2018’s landmark Pennsylvania grand jury report, which named more than 300 predator priests accused of abusing more than 1,000 children in six dioceses, the official lists of credibly accused priests added up to fewer than 1,500 names nationwide. Now, within the span of a little more than a year, more than 100 dioceses and religious orders have come forward with thousands of names — but often little other information that can be used to alert the public.”
NY Daily News reports that nearly 50 dioceses and religious orders have publicly released documents on pedophile priests in their jurisdictions and 55 more have announced plans to do the same. This means that in total, more than half of the 187 dioceses found in America have documented incidents of credible child abuse at the hands of priests and clergymen.
On February 21, 2019, Associated Press ran an article entitled A Global Look at the Catholic Church’s Sex Abuse Problem. The article examined some of the most recent global statistics coming from countries including Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, United States, and Vatican City. However, the article admitted that unfortunately data is unavailable in most countries for various reasons. In Italy, for instance there is no legal requirement for clergymen to report sexual abuse within the Church to authorities.
The Associated Press writes,
“Much of the developing world has largely escaped a public explosion of the scandal, as have conflict zones and countries where Catholics are a minority.
But even majority Catholic countries have lagged. Just this week, the online resource BishopAccountability listed Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Congo and a handful of other heavily Catholic countries as places where the church leadership has failed to respond adequately when priests rape and molest children.”
The Australian Government conducted a four year national investigation into all forms of sexual abuse, both within and outside of the Catholic Church.
“The landmark survey found 4,444 people were abused at more than 1,000 Catholic institutions between 1980 and 2015.
The Royal Commission investigation, Australia’s highest form of inquiry, deduced that 7 percent of Catholic priests in Australia between 1950 and 2010 had been accused of sexually abusing children.”
In Chile, Pope Francis defended a bishop at the center of a scandal only to eventually reverse his stance and condemn the bishop in question. Chilean prosecutors demanded access to the Church’s secret archives which resulted in over 100 investigations into allegedly abusive priests and how archbishops worked to conceal their crimes.
The Associated Press continues,
“In September, the German Catholic Church released a devastating report that concluded at least 3,677 people were abused by clergy between 1946 and 2014.
More than half the victims were 13 or younger and most were boys. Every sixth case involved rape and at least 1,670 clergy were involved. Some 969 abuse victims were altar boys.
While the report was an effort at transparency, the researchers who compiled it complained they didn’t have access to original files, and said there was evidence that some files were manipulated or destroyed.”
Sadly, many cases have had to be dropped due to an expiration on the statute of limitations or because the accused priests have since deceased. The victimizers of these children will never be brought to justice.
The truth is that at the time of this writing, we actually don’t have a full understanding of the scale of the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse crisis. We can easily deduce that the Church’s reported figures are woefully underestimated, and that the percentage of priests implicated in the scandal could very conceivably be 10% or higher. As time goes on, we will undoubtedly learn of much more of the horrors that this institution has worked so vociferously to cover up.
Vatican Continues to Obfuscate and Procrastinate on Abuse Charges
Limiting our investigation only to the amount of defrocked priests is not serving our goal of assessing the scale of the sexual abuse crisis because the Vatican has a consistent history of procrastination on addressing the crisis and downplaying or obfuscating the charges brought against its priests. The Vatican has a pattern of behavior that indicates it is more concerned about protecting itself than protecting its victims.
On November 12, 2018, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Vatican had barred bishops in the United States from taking any action against child abuse within the Church until after a summit to be held the following year. This last minute directive was given shortly before bishops were to hold a vote on how to go about dealing with the persistent crisis, highlighting the incessant procrastination from the highest levels of the Church.
On January 4, 2019, Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, who stands accused in several different cases of child abuse, was defended by the Vatican as having “consensual sex” with a 16 year old alter boy in 1972. Although the Archdiocese of New York found the allegations of molestation to be credible, the Vatican instead reversed this ruling and asserted that the alter boy was passed the age of majority in Canon law, despite the fact that the age of majority under US law is 18. Other allegations of abuse by McCarrick are still being adjudicated at the time of this writing.
Five months prior, on August 22, 2018, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano penned an eleven page testimony claiming that Pope Francis knew of the crimes of McCarrick and the sanctions set against him by Pope Benedict and rather than disciplining McCarrick, Francis promoted him to “his trusted counselor.” Vigano also implicated several other high-ranking Vatican officials for their negligence and publicly called for Francis to resign from his post.
“In this extremely dramatic moment for the universal Church, he must acknowledge his mistakes and, in keeping with the proclaimed principle of zero tolerance, Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example to Cardinals and Bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them.”
In October of 2019, an Associated Press investigation found that nearly 1,700 accused priests and clergymen that the Vatican considers credibly accused pedophiles are now living unsupervised by law enforcement and hold positions such as teachers, coaches, and counselors and many live near playgrounds. Some even counsel survivors of sexual assault. Since leaving the Church, many have committed new crimes including sexual assault and possessing child pornography. This number is especially alarming considering the total number of priests and clergymen remaining alive that the Associated Press researched was only about 2,000. This means that approximately 85% of all living priests and clergymen that have been credibly accused are now under the radar, living near and working with children. Additionally, 76 of those remaining alive could not be located at all.
Dozens of Priests Abused Children at Two Different Schools for Deaf and Mute
On September 29, 2018, new reports emerged that 67 deaf children were sexually abused by more than a two dozen priests working at the Catholic Church’s Antonio Provolo Institute for deaf and mute children in Verona, Italy. Prosecutors have been working on the investigation for more than a decade.
A boy using the pseudonym “Giuseppe” described his abuse, which started at age 11, in an interview he gave in Rome in 2018. He explains how a monk employed by the institute taught him and other young boys “special secret signs” for penis, anus, masturbation, fellatio, and more.
“I didn’t understand at first just why this man was teaching me these strange secret signs. Then one day it became very clear when one of the priests made the secret sign for fellatio when we were alone, which was followed by him pushing his erect penis into my mouth.”
Giuseppe explained that no one could hear their screams because everyone that attended the institute was deaf and everyone who worked at the institute was in on it. He explained that the priests, monks, and brothers would take boys out of their studies and into special rooms where the abuse took place. Giuseppe recounted that the boys were allowed to send letters to their families and they would often write letters about their abuse, but because the priests were the ones who would mail them, Giuseppe believes that all of their cries for help were intercepted.
“Of course we screamed and cried. Sometimes you would see priests coming into the dormitory at night, or you would see friends with tears rolling down their faces and you knew exactly what had just happened. You didn’t need to hear to know.”
However, word eventually got out about the abuse happening at the school, presumably from former students who had aged out of the program after turning 18. When allegations surfaced, Father Nicola Corradi, for example, was simply transferred to another school for the deaf and mute called Provolo Institute in Mendoza, Argentina where he and others in the administration continued to abuse more children. He would finally be arrested in 2016 on allegations of abuse against 22 children over the course of 30 years.
Julieta Añazco is a whistleblower victim of the abuse at the Provolo Institute in Argentina. She was first abused by Father Ricardo Giménez who was later transferred after allegations against him surfaced. He was transferred by Pope Francis, then known as Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio. Añazco, along with 13 other victims who now belong to the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, also known as SNAP, signed an letter to Pope Francis in July of 2013 reminding him of the abuse and again calling for action on the matter. Francis never replied but the members did receive a confirmation of receipt.
Bishop Accountability, a watchdog website for child abuse in the Church, cites five separate cases that Pope Francis overlooked or remained silent on as cardinal.
In Part Two of our investigation series, we reported on accusations by an Argentine military whistleblower that Pope Francis is a “prime mover” in a global child trafficking network. The whistleblower claims that during the Dirty War of the 1970s, he personally was involved in meetings between senior officials of the Argentine military and Pope Francis, then known as Jorge Bergoglio, as he organized the trafficking of children of political prisoners using Catholic orphanages as cover. These recent revelations revolving the abuse at the two schools for deaf and mute children seem to substantiate Pope Francis’ lack of transparency and negligence on the crisis, at the very least, if not direct complicity in facilitating widespread sexual abuse of children.
Horrific Cases of Pedophilia Within the Church
On October 3, 2014, it was reported on Patheos.com that more than 100,000 images and videos of child porn were found on former Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski’s personal computer. Additional child porn images were also found on his laptop. A year prior, after he was publicly accused of procuring child porn and sexually abusing children, the Vatican secretly removed him from his post as papal nuncio, hoping to avoid a larger public scandal. Unfortunately, Wesolowski died on August 27, 2015, while living in the Vatican under house arrest. He was never brought to justice for his crimes.
On December 20, 2018, Associated Press reported on the conviction of an Idahoan Catholic priest who wanted to “rape and kill children” to 25 years in prison. Rev. W. Thomas Faucher used online chat rooms to exchange child pornography, discuss Satanism, and discuss his fantasies with other pedophiles about violently torturing children.
“During his sentencing hearing in Idaho on Thursday, Judge Jason Scott said Faucher fantasized about raping and killing young children, favored child pornography that depicted extreme violence and claimed in online chats to have mixed his own bodily fluids into the communion wine at his church.”
In a particularly grisly case of revenge and perhaps even karma, the Washington Post reported on August 25, 2003 that a priest who had raped more than 150 boys was murdered in prison by one of his victims. The priest, John Geoghan, was from Boston and was the original priest profiled by the Boston Globe in 2002 which blew the whistle on the Church’s child abuse scandal and catalyzed investigations worldwide.
The attacker, whom authorities identified as Joseph L. Druce, had the following to say about the incident:
“I wanted to get the thoughts out of my mind of being molested myself, and the arrogant way he answered my questions… I had seen myself as the designated individual who had to put a stop to the pedophilia in the church.”
One Third of Pope Francis’ Council Expelled for Pedophilia
On December 12, 2018, Pope Francis caved to mounting public pressure to expel three cardinals from his council of nine advisors after five years of litigation around child abuse. You did not misread that. One third of Pope Francis’ closest advisors were embroiled in sexual abuse scandals and were not proactively removed, rather, they were only expelled after significant public condemnation. Those removed were Cardinal George Pell of Australia, Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz of Chile, and Cardinal Laurent Monswengo Pasinya of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Cardinal George Pell is perhaps the most significant and high profile individual in the Catholic Church to get convicted for pedophilia as he was the third most powerful person in the Church internationally. Pell was the treasurer of the Vatican, otherwise known as the prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy within the Holy See. Pope Francis had previously applauded Pell for his honesty and conviction in dealing with sexual abuse within the Church. Pell was apparently handpicked by Francis to root out corruption in the institution. Pell was sentenced to six years in prison on March 12, 2019.
In addition to the three cardinals charged in Pope Francis’ council of nine, three other Vatican officials have been charged with similar crimes in recent years. Monsignor Carlo Capella was charged in 2018 with possession and distribution of child pornography and sentenced to five years in prison. Monsignor Jozef Wesolowski was arrested in 2013 for sexually abusing young boys, but died before his trail commenced. Archbishop Luigi Ventura was placed under investigation for abuse allegations in 2019 and his verdict is currently pending. Like Italy, Vatican City has no legal requirement to report sexual abuse to the authorities.
We have just seen demonstrable evidence of a concerted effort by the Vatican to hide abuse, remain silent, stymie investigations, delay action, obfuscate perceptions, mislead the public, and do anything and everything to maintain a squeaky clean image rather than doing the ethical, honorable, and just thing.
Of course, the scope of our investigation is focused on child abuse. If you wish to learn more about other abuses carried out by priests and clergymen on women within the Church, watch the documentary The Keepers on Netflix.
In the next segment of our presentation, we will do the job that the mainstream media has cowardly neglected to do. We will connect many more dots of the unfolding mass arrests saga that indicate the tides may be turning in favor of justice and prosecution for the sick, soulless creatures and criminal syndicates involved in this industry of sorrow.
CHAPTER 2: MASS ARRESTS
In each Systemic Pedophilia presentation I produce, I provide a slew of headlines to demonstrate that mass arrests are occurring all around the world including prominent politicians and figureheads, particularly after the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump. We rarely hear about these headlines, but when they are consolidated and sequenced chronologically, the trend becomes quite apparent.
Let us now take a look at some updates in the way of mass arrests that have occurred since we released Part Three. Let’s begin by looking at noteworthy sting operations and busts of large child trafficking networks.
Large Scale Sting Operations
April 6, 2018
The FBI seize Backpage.com, raid the founder’s home, and arrest 7 men related to child trafficking and prostitution charges. Backpage was the nation’s largest child-sex trafficking website, as nearly 3/4 of all the cases submitted to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were traced back to ads posted on the website.
October 3, 2018
Michigan authorities find 123 missing children as part of Operation MISafeKid.
June 24, 2019
Authorities arrest 85 human traffickers in Florida as part of Operation Trade Secrets. Some face additional charges of child pornography.
July 22, 2019
Authorities arrest 25 in child sex trafficking sting in Arizona as part of Operation Summer Shield.
July 22, 2019
Authorities arrest 4 human traffickers in Tennessee.
August 6, 2019
The FBI arrest 67 suspected human traffickers and rescue 103 children as part of Operation Independence Day. The sweep resulted in 60 new federal investigations.
August 19, 2019
Authorities arrest 4 additional human traffickers in Tennessee.
October 16, 2019
Authorizes arrest 337 child porn users including a South Korean “kingpin” after shutting down the world’s largest child porn marketplace on the dark web. The website, called Welcome to Video, contained more than 200,000 unique videos of children, toddlers, and infants. One particular user from Washington, D.C. was found to have downloaded more than 50 years worth of video footage.
October 16, 2019
Authorities in Ontario arrest 31 human traffickers including a central “kingpin” as part of Project Convalesce.
Politicians and Prominent Figureheads
Let us now take a look at yet more politicians and prominent figureheads that have been exposed since our last presentation.
July 19, 2019
George Nader, a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion probe, is charged with transporting a 14 year old boy for sex, child pornography, and carrying obscene materials.
July 23, 2019
Authorities arrest former Vice President of Walt Disney Company, Michael Laney, for 4 counts of sexual abuse of a 7 year old girl.
October 10, 2019
Authorities arrest Arizona’s Maricopa County Assessor Paul Petersen in human trafficking adoption scheme. Petersen was charged with counts of human smuggling, sale of a child, fraud, forgery, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
9 Out of 10 Human Trafficking Websites Shut Down by President Trump
In Part Three of our investigation, we reported on a bill that President Donald Trump signed into law called the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017 intended to allow state prosecutors and sex-trafficking victims to sue advertisers, social media networks, and website operators that host or otherwise facilitate online sex trafficking. The legislation overturned previous legal protection that allowed technology companies to evade regulation and prosecution for such activities.
As of January 1, 2019, just 8 months later, it was reported that 87% of websites dealing in human trafficking have been permanently shut down.
I try to end my presentations on an optimistic note, given the heaviness of this material. As grave as this problem is, it is not unsolvable. Start a conversation with friends and family about this epidemic. Share this presentation. I have provided links to all of the sources in the transcript on my website at DauntlessDialogue.com.
