Tonight, I thought that it would be important to speak candidly, that is if it can be candid about the swarm of allegations of sexual misconduct not only coming from Hollywood, but also the potential of more lurid allegations being brought forward in the political arena.

Sexual exploitation and human trafficking of minors in the United States is a very ugly subject to address because of what it does to us emotionally. This is why I believe it is frequently overlooked. Rape allegations in Hollywood have now been scandalous fodder for the media to play with and it can become more exploitative and even akin to a so-called witch hunt.

But of course, the term, “witch hunt” can also be exploitative.

In the past, women were symbolically burnt at the stake or drowned in a public spectacle. In what we call our civilized society, women put on trial by the media with vultures picking apart their personal history, which is transformed into sensational headlines that put the victim in a dangerous place when they decide to come forward about sexual impropriety.

When we can see the witch hunt epoch as the “burning times” we can see that what is happening now are the “enlightening times” where it all unravels and mesmerizes us until we are numb or hostile about an already suspected toxic psycho-sexual environment.

In the last few months, there has been increasing attention in the media and elsewhere about sexual misconduct and also the scourge that is in the hidden underbelly of power, and that is pedophilia.

Much of the attention used to have its focus, internationally. This international focus has overshadowed the reality that commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors also occur every day within the United States.

We know that what is happening is illegal but it also results in immediate and long-term physical, mental, and emotional harm to victims and survivors.

The cost of women speaking out is high – personal onslaughts, vitriol and threats to career advancement. It begs the question: Why would women speak out, rather than why don’t they? Centuries ago women were warned against non-conformity with the threat of public execution. Today, women who dare challenge the dysfunctional status quo do so at risk of public character assassination and ridicule.

A nation that plays dumb to these problems, or passes blame to those who espouse a difference in religious and political ideology or sexual orientation contributes to the ongoing abuse of minors and women and all but ensures that these crimes will remain marginalized and misunderstood.

I want to make it clear that if anyone out there thinks that only one political ideology, religion, or sexual orientation is more prone to the abuse of women or children, you are wrong and as we see that Hollywood right now is in the light of sexual misconduct it won’t be long where politicians and religious figures will be fingered in being a part of this perverse cesspool.

While the crisis of the now is pointing fingers at well-known actors for sexual misconduct, there are forgotten histories of known sexual misconduct that when revealed anger people because it shatters their normalcy bias and cherished lies that they cling to.

Gandhi is arguably the most famous spiritual leader in modern history and was responsible for the civil rights movement that eventually broke British imperial rule over India. He was known for peaceful acts of non-cooperation, including hunger strikes, boycotts, and a 241-mile march to the sea to gather salt, an act prohibited by a bizarrely specific edict of British law.

Gandhi was revered as a holy man until he was assassinated by a religious fanatic, which sadly is what tends to happen to people like him.

It’s true that Gandhi took a vow of celibacy when he was 37. However, this did not stop him from heroically encouraging young women to sleep naked with him until he was well into his 70s.

Gandhi took his 18-year-old grandniece on a trip with him to Bengal and commanded her to share the nudity bunk with him for their entire stay, a move he rationalized by telling her that they might be killed at any moment by angry Muslims. That’s right – Gandhi told his barely legal niece to take off all of her clothes and climb into bed with her equally naked great uncle because the two of them might suddenly be murdered.

If we dig into American history we see that one of the founding fathers of the United States of America, Benjamin Franklin was also considered a pervert.

We all know that history tells us that he was a prolific inventor and a tireless innovator, responsible for bifocal spectacles and odometers, the flexible urinary catheter, and a dominating presence in rap lyrics. He was an early champion of environmental awareness, formed libraries and founded hospitals, organized the first fire department, and pushed for anti-slavery legislation before his death in 1790.

But, behind closed doors Franklin would sexually take advantage of elderly women.

In a 1745 letter to a younger acquaintance, Ben Franklin advised that elderly concubines were the best choice because they were so deflated by age that they would do anything to keep a man interested in them. Rickety old women, he continued, are also by nature more discreet, more experienced, and less likely to become pregnant, which would spare you from any siring of unwanted children.

The good Mr. Franklin was a member of the Hellfire Club, which was an elite club that had big orgies that included prostitutes, S&M bondage and even satanic rituals.

Winston Churchill liked to parade around naked, ambushing unsuspecting staffers and foreign dignitaries alike openly showing his genitals to them.

Apparently, anyone who had an appointment with Churchill ran the risk of walking in on him striding around his office in his pasty undulating birthday suit, conducting the business of the nation with his Member of Parliament ruffling gently in the breeze.

The rest is sleazy history that has continued behind closed doors for decades.

Now something has changed.

Women and other victims of abuse have gone on the record. It’s worth it to wonder why. Perhaps because of shifts in how we understand these kinds of abuses. Recent years have seen scores of women and young men, finding strength and some kind of power in numbers, come forward and tell their stories about power players in politics and in Hollywood.

In the climate of 1998-2000, “sexual harassment” and the poster child for Predator was none other than President Bill Clinton.

The sexual harassment and affair with Monica Lewinski and the sexual harassment claims of Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey had transfixed the nation for two years and dug the entire world of liberalism into a defensive crouch against female accusers of powerful liberals.

Even today, liberal women like Joy Behar, who is a host on the ABC Television show “The View” has defended Bill Clinton by saying that his accusers were nothing but tramps.

Bill Clinton appears to have been forgiven of his sins even though he was impeached for lying about his sexual misconduct and predatory behavior. This is a sick double standard because there have most certainly been other women that he has treated as disposable, and this did not factor into the credibility of his wife Hillary Clinton when she ran for President. . The Clinton machine had nationalized the methods of destroying the credibility of women, even liberal women in good standing, who dared to speak out against his rabid behavior.

It is also interesting to point out that the Hillary Clinton along with Barack Obama were more than happy to accept funding from accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein and had a close personal relationship with the wife of Andrew Weiner who is also been charged with being a sex offender for sexting and soliciting sexual hook ups with minors.

In all of the sexual fracas fingering ne’er do-well Liberals there was a story that came and went without a pause and that is the story where actress Heather Lind came forward with accusations that President George H.W. Bush sexually assaulted her during a photo opportunity with his wife, Barbara Bush standing by his side. Bush has since apologized for the incident saying that it was an “attempt at humor” and that he didn’t mean to offend Lind.

A statement was issued to the press:

“At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures. To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.”

Meanwhile a second woman, actor Jordana Grolnick came forward and said that she too was the victim of a butt groping from the aging former President.

Following a performance of The Hunchback of Notre Dame that Bush had attended in Maine, Grolnick said, “We all circled around him and [former first lady] Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him,” she told the website. “He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, ‘Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?’ As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, ‘David Cop-a-Feel!’”

Grolnick said others in the room “laughed politely and out of discomfort”, while Barbara Bush “said something along the lines of, ‘He’s going to get himself put into jail!’ to which we laughed harder.”

However, no one was laughing back in June of 1989 when the elder Bush’s administration was rocked by a scandal when the headlines of the Washington Times splashed “Homosexual Prostitution Probe Ensnares Official of Bush, Reagan, Call Boys Took Midnight Tour of White House.”

The New York Times also had the story on its front page.

“A homosexual prostitution ring is under investigation by federal and District authorities and includes among its clients key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, congressional aides and U.S. and foreign businessmen with close ties to Washington’s political elite.”-New York Times.

This was the biggest scandal to rock the elder Bush White House. The strangest thing is that the public probably doesn’t remember it, and for good reason. The story received some newspaper coverage, but on TV news there was a blackout on the subject. For this reason, most Americans have never heard of it.

Former Republican Senator John DeCamp tried to get the message out by producing a documentary called “Conspiracy of Silence”. It was supposed to air May 3rd, 1994 on the Discovery Channel.

This documentary revealed that a network of Washington politicians and religious leaders at Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska were flying children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies.

Boy prostitutes 15 years old (and younger) were taking midnight tours of the White House.

This was all connected to the Franklin Savings and Loan cover–up scandal.

The Franklin Community Federal Credit Union was raided by federal agencies and shut down. Franklin’s manager was Lawrence E. (Larry) King, Jr., was considered a rising star in state and national Republican circles, an officer of the National Black Republican Council. King sang the national anthem at the GOP national conventions in 1984 and 1988.

Nearly $40 million was missing from the coffers of the small, ostensibly community–oriented credit union. The financial scandal turned into something more when children from Omaha and its surroundings said they had been flown from city to city, to be abused at parties held by Franklin’s officers and well–known Nebraskans, including nationally prominent Republican Party activists.

One witness, Alisha Owen, testified before a grand jury that she was sexually abused as a juvenile by a Nebraska district court judge, by the chief of police of the city of Omaha, by the manager of the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union, and others.

Alisha Owen also witnessed, she said, the abuse of other children by figures in Nebraska’s political and financial establishment whom she named, among them the publisher of the state’s largest newspaper, the Omaha World–Herald. She testified that she was in a group of Nebraska children who functioned for years as illegal drug couriers, traveling nationwide for some of Nebraska’s wealthiest, most powerful and prominent businessmen.

Two grand juries, one local and one federal, had a mandate to consider these and other charges of child abuse connected with the Franklin Credit Union. They indicted the victim–witnesses for perjury instead!

Alisha Owen was pronounced guilty by a jury in Douglas County, Nebraska, on eight counts of felony perjury. On August 8, 1991, she was sentenced to serve nine to twenty–seven years in prison.

Paul Bonacci, whose testimony extensively corroborated Owen’s, had proven to the court that he had been badly abused. But the court concluded that his abuse was committed by persons other than those the young people named. Bonacci, too, was indicted for perjury. Two other victim–witnesses, whose stories also backed up those of Owen and Bonacci, recanted under immense pressure. Alisha Owen and Paul Bonacci refused to recant.

Paul Bonacci claimed that he had been abused and tortured since childhood. Bonacci was tortured, beaten and sexually abused until his mind cracked, causing him to develop multiple personality disorder. Tens of thousands of American children have been diagnosed MPD; virtually all of them are thought to have resulted from sexual abuse. There are many who claim that 85 percent of these cases are considered Satanic Ritual Abuse.

Paul claims that he was taken by Lawrence King and others to a wooded area in California. Bonacci claimed that in the area there was a large owl.

The book “Franklin Cover–Up” by John DeCamp first omitted this testimony because it sounded far–fetched. It was later discovered that Bonacci was describing the area near the Bohemian Grove.

The Bohemian Grove is located in Sonoma County, California, and is the site of an annual two–week gathering of the country’s elite. Current participants include George Bush Sr., George W. Bush, and others who make the list of the Who’s Who in the United States.

Mother Jones News reported in August of 1981 some of the prominent members that attend also include: “George P. Shultz, Stephen Bechtel, Jr., Gerald R. Ford, Henry Kissinger, William F. Buckley, Jr., Fred L. Hartley, Merv Griffin, Thomas Haywood, Joseph Coors, Edward Teller, Ronald Reagan, A. W. Clausen, Dick Cheney, William French Smith, John E. Swearingten, Casper W. Weinberger, Justin Dart, William E. Simon, and hundreds of other prominent political figures and businessmen.

The activities that go on there are kept secret. Reporters are forbidden to even go there and report on what goes on. That doesn’t mean that reporters haven’t busted the “party.”

President Nixon once commented that the grove was a place of depravity, where political giants would be seen frolicking around in dresses and hoods, having sex with prostitutes both male and female.

Witnesses claim that the participants of the Bohemian Grove romp take part in a mock human sacrifice called the “Cremation of Care.” This ritual is held at an altar which stands at the foot at a large stone owl, a representation of the ancient God, Moloch. The Santa Rosa Sun reported in July of 1983 that rituals held in the grove were similar to those performed in the, Cult of Canaan. This ancient cult would worship Moloch and perform sex orgies around these hollow effigies of owls.

The Moloch sacrificial rite has as its victims human beings. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the chief feature of Moloch’s worship among the ancients seems to have been the sacrifice of children, and the usual expression for describing that sacrifice was “to pass through the fire”, a rite carried out after the victims had been put to death.

While at the grove, Paul Bonacci claims that he and another boy were forced to do sex acts with and to consume parts of a child whom they had watched being murdered by men in hooded robes. The body was to be disposed of by “the men with the hoods.”

Ironically in the recent season of House of Cards, puts the series’ protagonist Frank Underwood, played by recently accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, inside a wooded retreat for powerful men dubbed, “Elysian Fields.”

In the episode powerful men gather around a large crow and offer a burnt offering, which is an effigy of a child.

This of course acknowledges the fact that powerful men do come together to do sexually perverted things in a grove somewhere is California.

But of course much of this has been declared conspiracy theory and is dismissed as nothing but political theater.

Sexual misconduct and exploitation of mind controlled sex slaves has always been the darker subject in the annals of conspiracy history.

In the 1950’s as part of the government’s MK Ultra program, the CIA once ran brothels and dosed unsuspecting customers with LSD. Operation Midnight Climax had prostitutes spiking the drinks just to see what would happen. They would take their johns into rooms with one way mirrors. On the other side were CIA operatives filming the sexual activity for study.

In the 1960’s, our beloved President John F. Kennedy ‘s womanizing was kept under wraps because for generations the Washington press corps has believed that there was virtually nothing about politician’s private lives was the public’s business.

Under the old code of ethics sexual intimacies of public officials were concealed as secrets and confidences. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had an extra-marital affair with Lucy Mercer and while it was known about by many people the press kept in under wraps. As for his wife Eleanor, her suspected infidelities both heterosexual and homosexual were kept secret by the press.

Even Lyndon B. Johnson’s robust extra-marital sexual activity was a heavily-guarded secret.

What is eerie is that Kevin Spacey who stands accused of the attempted rape of a 14 year old actor plays President Francis Underwood in the House of Cards who is quoted as saying:

“The road to power is paved with hypocrisy and casualties. Never regret.”

There have many people who have tried to get the warning out about the widening gyre of cultural failure in the United States. It is becoming the norm to embrace all kinds of strange behaviors and attitudes that are self–destructive and self–deprecating.

For survival and for fear inadequacy, the majority tends to follow the consensus reality and not collective conscience. The truth supposedly sets you free, and many people will use that axiom in reference to liberty and power. However, times have changed and power is the new drug that intoxicates its victims and what is done while under its influence has become a greater nightmare in a culture that has embraced some of the greater evils that can destroy it from within.
