"The Great Satan"
A Priest and a Bishop
I promise to come back down to Earth again soon, and talk of run of the mill concerns like bogus wars, plagues and the End of the World. But first things, before Last Things.
For instance, have you heard the one about the Toledo priest? It's not a joke, except maybe to those who think ritual abuse is the domain of hysterical women and their suggestible children. And I guess that would be most people.
From Sunday's Toledo Blade:
Dark allegations arise amid probe of nun's slaying
Authorities expand investigation to claims of ritualistic sex abuse
For Toledo police, it was a rare assignment: Search an abandoned house on the edge of a cornfield in western Lucas County where people reportedly took part in ritual abuse ceremonies.
The search of the decrepit, wood structure last year was a sign the investigation of the Rev. Gerald Robinson was moving beyond a murder case.
No longer was the probe focusing solely on the man accused of killing Sister Margaret Ann Pahl, but was expanding into a new direction: accusations that children were molested and raped by priests in ritual services.
Four women told detectives about being abused between the late 1960s and 1986 during cult-like ceremonies involving altars and men dressed in robes, the accusers told The Blade. "I've had nightmares about this since I was a child," said one woman, who asked not to be named. "I didn't think anyone would believe me."
Noted forensic expert Henry Lee has been retained to examine the physical evidence of the 25-year old slaying, which police are still calling a "ritual" killing "because of the circumstances surrounding the crime, including the way her body was found: lying face up with an altar cloth draped over her torso, her body posed to appear like she was sexually assaulted." A "deliberate" pattern of stab wounds is said to resemble a cross.
Awful, but why should we care here, and can we please get back to bashing Bush? All in good time.
Then there's the one about the two Bishops. Or perhaps, just one.
Let's go back to Johnny Gosch for a moment, about whom we wrote here with respect to the Gannon/Guckert fiasco. In the first chapter of Noreen Gosch's self-published book about her son's abduction, Why Johnny Can't Come Home (released November, 2000), she writes of a visit from a young man, George Paul Bishop, who went by "Paul," and who was associated with the CIA:
Within six months of the kidnapping, a young man identifying himself as Paul Bishop contacted me by phone. He told me an international kidnapping/pornography ring had taken my son. I asked, "How do you know that to be true, can you prove it!" He replied, " I work for a government agency which is investigating pedophile organizations. And there are indicators in your case that suggests your son was taken by such an organization. We feel he is being used for pornography and prostitution." All clues were pointing to the kidnapping being organized and not that of a "lone criminal". I found it difficult to believe and accept that my son could have been targeted by such an organization.
Paul Bishop, CIA Asset made another short trip to Des Moines, July 31,1984. It was at this time, he reported the name of the man who was the "spotter," Sam Soda, in Johnny’s kidnapping.... Sam was not too cooperative, became annoyed with Bishop, asking him to leave his office. There is indication today that these two individuals knew each other prior to this time. Before Paul left Des Moines, he created a very intricate map of the crime scene, indicating time sequence of each aspect of the kidnapping. Paul dated and initialed the map using GPB (George Paul Bishop).
During this time, I had also been working with Senator Grassley from Iowa, he had been particularly helpful in facilitating with the FBI. Many times Paul Bishop would call me from Senator Grassley’s office, when finished speaking with me, he would hand the phone to one of Grassley’s aides who I was familiar with. That convinced me Paul was an accepted visitor on the hill in Washington.
Senator Specter asked Paul Bishop of his relationship to the case, to me and did he know this to be true. Paul indicated he was an investigator and that every word of my testimony was accurate. Paul remained by my side during the hearing; answering questions asked by Senator Specter, these were the only words he spoke. This struck me as very unusual but then I had never been in this arena before to observe how a CIA man would conduct himself. At no time did Paul ever identify himself as CIA during the hearing or afterward during the interviews with the Washington Press. He withdrew from the view of the cameras.
Now consider this story, from Fairfax Virginia, February 2, as the Gannon story was starting to unravel:
Police arrest two on child porn charges
A complaint about excessive comings and goings of teenage boys at a Chantilly house led, this week, to the arrest of two Fairfax County men for child pornography offenses.
Richard Evans, of Annandale, and George Bishop, of Chantilly, who co-manage a literary Web site, were both arrested by Fairfax County Police on Friday, Jan. 28.
Police started investigating Bishop, 46, after they received a complaint that he was allegedly inviting teenage boys to come to his house, to drink alcohol and to take illegal narcotics.
For what it's worth, according to this, Mrs Gosch has seen the photo of the arrested Bishop, "and it is him. No doubt about it."
Writing years earlier, she wondered whatever happened to the young CIA asset, who used to call her "mom":
He was a young person in his twenties and I sometimes wonder, had he been used in some manner by the very element that took my son? Was he sent here to share with me the threads of truth, which would unfold later? It was years before the CIA was revealed as a part of this problem of missing children in our country and the world.
Rev. Gerald Robinson and Paul Bishop:
A Globalized and Sheltered Disorder
The White House call boy scandal opens the door on some strange places. But it would be wrong to call all the places "America." Consider a few from recent years:
Alleged Pedophiles Helm Blair's War Room
Counterpunch, January 29, 2003
A child-sex scandal that threatened to destroy Tony Blair's government last week has been mysteriously squashed and wiped off the front pages of British newspapers. Operation Ore, the United Kingdom's most thorough and comprehensive police investigation of crimes against children, seems to have uncovered more than is politically acceptable at the highest reaches of the British elite. In the 19th of January edition of The Sunday Herald, Neil Mackay sensationally reported that senior members of Tony Blair's government were being investigated for paedophilia and the "enjoyment" of child-sex pornography:
"The Sunday Herald has also had confirmed by a very senior source in British intelligence that at least one high-profile former Labour Cabinet minister is among Operation Ore suspects. The Sunday Herald has been given the politician's name but, for legal reasons, can not identify the person.
"There are still unconfirmed rumours that another senior Labour politician is among the suspects. The intelligence officer said that a 'rolling' Cabinet committee had been set up to work out how to deal with the potentially ruinous fall-out for both Tony Blair and the government if arrests occur."
The Blair government has responded by imposing a comprehensive blackout on the story, effectively removing it from the domain of public discussion. Attempts on the part of this journalist to establish why the British media has not followed up on the revelations have met with a wall of silence. Editors and journalists of The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, The Sunday Times, The Observer, The Sunday Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Daily Express, The Mirror, The Sun, the BBC, Independent Television News and even The Sunday Herald have refused to discuss the matter.
Call to lift veil of secrecy over Dunblane
The Guardian, February 14, 2003
Campaigners yesterday called for a review of the 100-year secrecy rule imposed on some documents seen by the inquiry into the Dunblane killings which were never made public.
The move comes after the Scottish cabinet this week instructed Scotland's most senior law officer to look again at the 100-year ban placed on a police report on Thomas Hamilton, who murdered 16 primary schoolchildren and their teacher.
There have been allegations that the lengthy closure order was placed on the report after it linked Hamilton to figures in the Scottish establishment, including two senior politicians and a lawyer.
There has been much speculation about the identity of the politicians in the report. It is known that in June 1996 Michael Forsyth, then Scottish secretary and MP for Stirling, congratulated Hamilton on running a boys' club in Dunblane.
Ritual abuse, pedophilia, murder, and the charge of a government cover-up
The Telegraph, August 17, 2001
Five years after the bodies of four murdered Belgian girls were discovered at houses owned by the paedophile Marc Dutroux, the father of one of them has accused the country's police and justice system of a cover-up ensuring that his trial has still not begun.
The claims by Paul Marchal, father of An Marchal, who was 17 when she disappeared in 1995, echo what many Belgians now privately believe: that Dutroux and his paedophile ring had connections with high-ranking members of the establishment in Belgium.
In a country that is becoming inured to corruption in public life, the theory of a cover-up is now increasingly accepted as the real reason why the Dutroux case has yet to come to court.
Belgium's X Files
BBC, May 2, 2002
There appears to be a steel veil drawn over the facts at the highest level and no one is prepared to expose those involved in this blatant cover-up.
The official answer is that a series of hysterical conspiracy theories forced investigators to search for paedophile networks, which didn't exist. But for observers of this debacle, that's exactly what didn't happen.
Far from being investigated, leads pointing to a network seem rather to have been blocked or buried.
More from David McGowan:
Adding further fuel to the fire, as a Los Angeles Times report revealed, were claims by “a highly regarded children’s activist, Marie-France Botte … the Justice Ministry is sitting on a politically sensitive list of customers of pedophile videotapes.” The same report noted, “the affair has become further clouded by the discovery of a motorcycle that reportedly matches the description of one used in the 1991 assassination of prominent Belgian businessman and politician Andre Cools. Michel Bourlet, the head prosecutor on the pedophile case, meanwhile, has publicly declared that the investigation can be thoroughly pursued only without political interference. Several years ago, Bourlet was removed from the highly charged Cools case, which remains unsolved.”
Outrage continued to grow as more arrests were made and evidence of high-level government and police complicity continued to emerge. One of Dutroux's accomplices, businessman Jean-Michel Nihoul, confessed to organizing an ‘orgy’ at a Belgian chateau that had been attended by government officials, a former European Commissioner, and a number of law enforcement officers. A Belgian senator noted, quite accurately, that such parties were part of a system “which operates to this day and is used to blackmail the highly placed people who take part.”
Portugal rocked by child sex scandal
Allegations that a child sex ring has been operating out of state-run children's homes in Portugal for decades has prompted intervention by President Jorge Sampaio.
BBC, May 29, 2003
The developments sparked an outcry in Portugal, particularly when it was reported that a former president and several government ministers, as well as the police, knew of the allegations as far back as the early 1980s but failed to take action.
"Faced with the horror that so many children, who were entrusted to us to be educated and cared for, were victimised it is necessary to declare here that the president is certain that the guilty will be severely punished," President Sampaio said in a speech.
The latest high-profile arrests are of men publicly accused of sex abuse by former children of Casa Pia, Portugal's largest network of homes for troubled children.
Casa Pia first made the headlines following allegations that an employee at the institution allegedly helped wealthy child molesters to meet young boys in his care for over two decades.
Chilean elites caught in child porn ring
Boston Globe Jan 12 2004
VALPARAISO, Chile -- Congresswoman Maria Pia Guzman is a strait-laced conservative who has suddenly and unexpectedly become an outcast at the Congress building here. Sometimes her follow legislators murmur an insult when she comes within earshot: "Witch!"
Guzman did not unleash the sex scandal now rocking Chile's political and social elite, a sordid tale centered around a millionaire businessman and some runaway teenagers.
But she did publicly link a handful of congressmen and senators to the case, suggesting some of her own political allies might be involved in an alleged ring of prostitution and child pornography. And for that, some of her fellow legislators will not forgive her.
When she gets in an elevator with other congressmen, they often step out. "There is a very strong psychological warfare going on," Guzman said in an interview in her Valparaiso office. Lighting a cigarette, she added: "Before this case, I had stopped smoking."
Mob In Mexico Burns Two Federal Agents Alive
AP, November 24, 2004
MEXICO CITY -- A crowd angry about recent child kidnappings cornered plainclothes federal agents taking photos of students at a school on Mexico City's outskirts and burned the officers alive, the latest example of mob justice in a country beset by corrupt police and high crime.
The violence began in the early evening, when locals collared three men staking out a school in the San Juan Ixtlayopan neighborhood. The area has been tense since two youngsters disappeared and were feared kidnapped from the school. Some in the crowd appeared to believe the agents were kidnappers. When asked about complaints that authorities had failed to respond to demands to investigate the disappearances, Figueroa said a full schedule had prohibited federal authorities from concentrating on the case.
The National Security State's Left-Hand Path
But let's leave sex for a moment, to talk about magic. Before we talk about both.
We've already engaged in some high speculation with respect to the hidden hand of Aleister Crowley in the occult subtext of the National Security State. Perhaps, just perhaps, Crowley's "Amalantrah Working" had succeeded in creating a dimensional portal, through which the prototypical "Grey," whom he called Lam, crossed. And that the "Babalon Working" of his American adepts, Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Jack Parsons and L Ron Hubbard, created a breech, initiating the modern "UFO" phenomenon.
To this understanding, the UFO phenomenon does not demonstrate extraterrestrial contact. It demonstrates a summoning.
And we should note here that if there is any credence to this, then behind the modernity lie the "Enochian entities" of the Elizabethan spiritualist Dr John Dee, who was "almost certainly a prime mover in the 'Illuminati' and 'Rosicrucian Brotherhoods' of that time, which played a central role in the birth of modem science."
Let's consider this UFO case, from July 6, 1959. Major Robert Friend, the acting chief of "Project Blue Book" at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, was asked to travel to Washington to evaluate a discovery of Naval Intelligence. Two officers had traveled to Maine the month before, to meet a woman "who claimed to be in contact with extraterrestrials":
The officers met the woman and watched her enter a trance and become a “communications link.” The woman sat mesmerized. Only her arm from the elbow down moved. It scribbled out meaningless circles interspersed with legible letters. They spoke questions to which answers appeared within the scribbling. The answers indicated they were coming from a kind of space patrol leader named “AFFA.”
According to the officers a number of unverifiable answers were offered to such questions such as, “What is the population of Jupiter?” Among other things, AFFA said he and his men were part of an inter-solar-system police force investigating atomic tests on Earth. But more interestingly, the Navy intelligence men posed questions incompatible with her education of technical understanding- questions like “What is the length of the Uranus ‘ day?” and “What is the distance between Jupiter and the sun at Jupiter’s apogy?” “Her” answers were correct, the two incredulous investigators later reported to Friend.
About 2 p.m. July 6, 1959, at a secret government office concealed on the top story of a garage at 5th and K St., N.W., Washington, D.C., one of the two commanders, just back from Maine, went into a trance during which he wrote messages which indicated they were from an individual named “AFFA.” AFFA’s origin: planet Uranus.
Another Navy intelligence and a civilian intelligence officer were present.
Among the more interesting interchanges later reported to Friend were the following:
Q. It’s very interesting that we are talking with someone that we can see, but can see have proof of your existence?
A. What kind of proof do you want?
Q. Can we see you or your craft?
A. When do you want to see?
A. Go to the window.
All the intelligence people went to the window, where they saw a UFO fly by (i.e.) not stationary) a short distance away. As they later told Friend it was saucer shaped and brighter around the perimeter than in the center.
The confusion that followed ended the communication with AFFA.
Of interest to us here is the fact that "AFFA" is a word in the "angelic" Enochian language given Dee by the entities which had contacted him in the 17th Century. "AFFA" means "nothing," or "empty."
Jacques Vallee has contributed much to an understanding of the deceptive, tricksterish characteristics of UFO contact; its irrationality; and its continuity with folkloric phenomena of ages past. When people have expected angels or faeries, they have recorded contact with entities claiming to be the same. When human consciousness came to accept extraterrestrials as a more plausibile conduit of supra-human contact, then entities began identifying themselves as visitors from Venus, Uranus, Zeta Reticuli or wherever.
Crowley reintroduced Enochian magic to modern followers of the "left hand path" of spiritual dissent while with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. He rearticulated it when he was initiated into the Ordo Templi Orientis.
Dr John Dee and Aleister Crowley:
Crowley's occult signature is "sex magick." Depending on the desired effect, it may be practiced autoerotically, with a partner or multiple partners. It is always ritualized. The "workings" of Crowley and Parsons were founded in this principle. (In Parson's record of the Babalon Working, when he writes "invocation of wand with material basis on talisman," he is describing masturbation and ejaculation. In Sex and Rockets: the Occult World of Jack Parsons, John Carter describes it as a "symbolic fertilizing of Parsons' desire through a very literal application.")
It may sound silly, and almost quaint. To the materialist, all magical thinking is, at best, no more than that. But let's turn to Crowley's MAGICK in Theory and Practice, and it sounds neither:
But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.
The animal should therefore be killed within the Circle, or the Triangle, as the case may be, so that its energy cannot escape. An animal should be selected whose nature accords with that of the ceremony--thus, by sacrifcing a female lamb one would not obtain any appreciate quantity of the fierce energy useful to a Magician who was invoking Mars. In such a case a ram would be more suitable. And this ram should be virgin--the whole potential of its original total energy should not have been diminished in any way. For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.
It's worth recalling here, that in the first part of my interview with mind control survivor Kathleen Sullivan, she describes the religious pracitices of her abusers and handlers as those "promoted by Great Britain’s Aleister Crowley. Those practices are especially bestial and dangerous – especially for children." And that her father, her "primary mental programmer and tormentor, was big into the teachings and practices of Aleister Crowley."
By the Second World War, Crowley was already an asset of British intelligence. According to Gerald Suster's The Legacy of the Beast, it was on Crowley's advice to the Director of Naval Intelligence that Winston Churchill adopted the V-sign, as a symbolic counter to the swastika, and the "thumbs up," which signalled not only victory, but sexual magic.
Imagine what must have been swept up by the Allies at war's end, in Project Paperclip. Not only Nazi science, but the esoteric knowledge of Himmler's Ahnenerbe, the Nazi Occult Bureau.
From Michael Fitzgerald's Storm-Troopers of Satan: an Occult History of the Second World War:
Hardly an occult theory escaped the attention of the Nazis, especially in Himmler's Occult Bureau and the German navy. It cannot be stressed too often that the world as perceived by the Nazis was a magical cosmos. As such, anything which could assist them in their aims of world domination through magical means was eagerly grasped. And in every case, where the choice existed between a positive and negative symbol, the Nazis opted for the negative, evil version. In this respect they demonstrated their consistent adherence to a conscious and deliberate Satanism, an attempt to establish a religion of blood and destruction.... Probably at no time in recent history has the world come closer to falling under the domination of a group of initiates serving consciously Satanic ends.
Now consider this: if Paperclip brought together the esoteric knowledge of "left-hand path" Anglo and Germanic secret schools in the "fight against communism," how would we recognize it today?
And let's just suppose - and I'll grant it's a big suppose, even in this context, and even with such supporting evidence as exists, since it beggers not only our credulity but our decency - that there is an international network of paedophilic elites. The question ought to be, why? Can it really all be attributed to the indulgence of forbidden desires? Or could it have an esoteric dimension - might it be about power? And not in the usual, true sense of power in abusive relations. I mean, in the esoteric sense. The Crowleyan sense. The sense of sex magick.
Well. Welcome to my scary mind.
I'm beginning to feel a bit like a down-market version of the Tom Cruise character in Eyes Wide Shut, who went looking for a good time and found instead an Illuminati sex ritual. I know the code that got me in; I just don't know the code that can get me out.
I didn't expect to find myself here, entertaining the "I"-word. I mean, come on; could this be something like the world: a populace molified on sucker faiths like the "New Age" Maitreya and a Moonified Christianity, while paedophilic Luciferians, allied to transdimensional tricksters, practice Crowley's law of "Do what thou wilt"?
The final word to Jacques Vallee. In Masters of Deception, he writes that when alleged communication with UFO occupants "touches on political subjects, [it] tended to emphasize totalitarian images. Vorilhon, for instance, reports he was told that democracy was obsolete. Raymond Bernard was instructed to expect a 'reversal of the old values.'"
Could it be?
Shhh - it's supposed to be a secret.
The young Crowley:
