LIEGE CONSPIRACY

Operation Gladio involved acts of terrorism carried out by the CIA-NATO

On 13 December 2011, several gunmen opened fire in the centre of the Belgian city of Liege.

Several people were killed and many were wounded.

The dead included teenage boys aged 15 and 17, and a 75-year-old woman.

Reports said that at least three men carried out the attack.

Belgium has been hit before.

The CIA-NATO's strategy of tension

From NATO, Gladio and the strategy of tension. N.A.T.O stay behind. :-

In Belgium, in 1984 a bizarre operation occurred around Vielsalm in the Ardennes region.

A squad of US Marines were parachuted into Belgium, and met by a member of the Belgian military intelligence.

They hid for a fortnight before attacking the police station of Vielsalm, in a so-called Oesling exercise, killing a Belgian officer. One marine was injured during the operation, losing an eye.

Initially the attack was passed off as terrorism, but was later proven to be the work of the American and Belgian military - as confirmed by the Senate investigations of 1991.



Other attacks occured, where, as was the case in Vielsalm, arms and ammunition were taken. Arms that found their way subsequently to extremist groups.

One central question in the Belgian Senate investigation into the stay-behind network was whether it had been involved in the so-called Brabant Massacres of the 1980s.

These were a group of attacks that occured in the area around Brussels called Brabant over a period of two years. Jewellers, restaurants, and in a number of cases supermarkets were attacked by a gang of heavily armed and ruthless men.

In all the attacks very small amounts of money were taken, while "at the same time massive brutality and professionalism was employed" [NATO's Secret Armies pg 139].

For example, on November 9th 1985 on a busy Saturday, three armed hooded men entered a supermarket and started shooting. Eight people were killed, some while trying to escape.

The money taken from the raid amounted to a couple of thousand pounds, and was found dumped in a canal in an unopened sack...

An official report published on the Brabant Massacres in 1990, before the discovery of the secret army network, had concluded that the killers had official links:

"According to the report, the killers were members or former members of the security forces – extreme right-wingers who enjoyed high-level protection and were preparing a right-wing coup" [NATO’s Secret Armies, pg 145]


Liege is linked to Dutroux.

In 1991, Belgium's former deputy prime minister, Andre Cools, announced that he was about to make some revelations about the mafia and their links to some of the most important people in Liege.

"Cools had most imprudently announced to the Belgian press... that he would soon release startling evidence about corruption in Belgium's growing arms industry and its ties to the Canadian billionaire Bronfman brothers, a number of major U.S. political figures and republican fat cats with influence reaching into the inner circles of the Bush White House.

"Among the names that Cools promised to present evidence on were Dick Cheney, Neil Bush, Frank Carlucci, Donald Rumsfeld and members of thepowerful Republican Barbour and Racicot clans who all own large shares in major arms manufacturers as well as Britain's Jonathan Aitken, Thatcher's secretary of state for defense who had large holdings in a string of British arms suppliers and was a leading figure in the Tory Party hierarchy." - (Conspiracy Planet - Whistleblower: Oswald LeWinter - Bush-Cheney ...)

Andre Cools

Cools was shot dead.

Before he could speak out.

Belgian TV came up with an anonymous witness who claimed that leading Socialist politician, Guy Mathot, had ordered Cools to be killed.

In 1994 Mathot was charged with corruption over kickbacks paid to Belgium's Socialist parties.

Willy Claes was NATO Secretary General and a Belgian. He was caught up in the Mathot kickbacks affair and was forced to resign.

Melchior Wathelet was top judge who released Dutroux from prison in 1991.

Wathelet was Belgium's judge at the European Court of Justice.

Wathelet was Belgium's Justice Minister at the time when Cools was shot dead.

In 1996 there were reports that the gangs involved in the Cools' killing had been involved with Dutroux.

Dutroux

According to an article by OSWALD LEWINTER, at Conspiracy Planet:

(Conspiracy Planet - Whistleblower: Oswald LeWinter - Bush-Cheney ...):

The discovery of computer discs at Dutroux's house, in 1996, "unraveled an international pedophile ring involving Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, the U.S., Great Britain, Japan and the United Nations and its agencies.

"The names found on the computer disks reached into the highest levels of politics and society in the various countries and institutions, including some of the very members of the Belgian government who had originally been implicated in the assassination of Andre Cools...

"Dutroux... was closely tied to a senior Portuguese diplomat, Jorge Ritto, a former ambassador to South Africa and Permanent Representative to UNESCO who is a close friend of the agency's Secretary General, Koiichiro Matsura.

"Ritto has been implicated and jailed as a major figure in Portugal's Casa Pia pedophilia scandal.

"Another leading figure dredged up in the widening circle of the Dutroux pedophilia operation, Jean Michel Nihoul, managed the group's finances out of posh offices on the Avenue de Louise in the heart of the Brussels business district.

"He managed a string of Dutroux's properties which functioned as pedophilia clubs in various countries, including a sumptuous and secluded villa in the Caribbean at which leading U.S. political figures, governors and members of Congress could satisfy their pedophile perversions safe from media sleuths.

"Nihoul ... was also a leading power in Belgian right-wing political circles, a close friend of U.S. General John Singlaub and Rev. Moon of the World Anti-Communist League as well as to men in the upper echelons of the Sasakawa Foundation.

"Nihoul ... became friends for a time with the late Pym Fortuyn,a Dutch politician who was murdered.

"Nihoul was also involved in the earlier 'L'Affaire Pinon' a series of pedophile orgies managed by the wife of Dr. Pinon.

"The Nihoul expose raised fears among some of the Belgian elites, that the pedophile indictments would force the reopening of an earlier case, involving the 7th January 1986 murder of a Juan Mendez of Fabrique Nationale.

"Mendez was responsible for providing false 'end-user certificates' for shipments of arms destined for for Iran, Iraq, and several African countries on the United Nations' arms embargo list.

"The Dutroux-Nihoul case also sparked a revival of interest in a parallel case unearthed in the United States, as part of the late 1980s Congressional and special prosecutors probes of the Contra Supply operations.

Bush

"The American case involved CIA- Col. Oliver North initiated drugs-for money-for weapons operation, and also the Franklin Credit Bank of Omaha, Nebraska,run by Larry King, a powerful African-American Republican Party operator, whose savings and loan institution was used to launder funds for Oliver North's Contras.

"When former Nebraska state senator John De Camp undertook a probe of King's activities , he uncovered a nationwide pedophile ring, servicing some of the wealthiest and most powerful figures in the Omaha business and political elites in the Republican Party circles of George Herbert Walker Bush

(see 'The Franklin Cover-Up, Child Abuse, Satanism and Murder in Nebraska,' by John W. De Camp,{Lincoln Nebraska: AWT, Inc., 1992}).

"On October 14, 1996, the Supreme Court of Belgium removed Judge Connerrote from the Dutroux case...

"Newspaper, LE SOIR, opined in an editorial that Judge Connerrote had to be removed 'because he was unwilling to refrain from subpoenaing major U.S. diplomats and high government officials, as well as key figures in the Dutch and Portuguese pedophilia cases.'"

SCALLYWAGS, SCOUTS AND GAY FASCISTS

Scouts by Pierre Joubert

nobody reported on the SCALLYWAGS, as seen on the TV programme QI.

"During World War II, the Scallywags were a secret unit of the UK's Home Guard: they were trained in assassination techniques in case of a German invasion of Britain...

"Amongst the Scallywags were Michael Foot
(Left winger Michael Foot - Wikipedia), George Orwell and J. B. Priestley and they were trained to kill anyone who collaborated with the Nazis.

"Their motto was 'Terror By Night'.


Scouts by Pierre Joubert

"Boy Scouts at ages 12 to 14 were taught at Osterley Park (where the Home Guard trained) how to decapitate motorists using a taut wire stretched across a road.

"British roller skating champion Harry Lee also taught them how to knee someone in the groin while using roller skates."

There were divided opinions on Hitler.

In many ways, CHURCHILL WAS LIKE HITLER?

CHURCHILL was said to be GAY just like Hitler E

Churchill considered an alliance with Hitler?

Hitler Youth: Commons:Bundesarchiv

In the 1930s, there were many Americans and many Europeans who were secretly fascist and secretly fond of boys.

According to 'The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party' by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams (Http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/Barracks/8706/apsc03.htm):

In Great Britain, the pro-Nazis formed the Anglo-German Fellowship (AGF).

The AGF was headed by British homosexuals Guy Burgess and Captain John Robert Macnamara.

British Historian John Costello relates how Burgess, Macnamara, Tom Wylie a War Office official, and J.H. Sharp the Church of England's Arch- deacon for Southern Europe, took a bunch of schoolboys on a trip to Germany to attend a Hitler Youth camp.

They discovered that 'the boys of the Hitler Youth satisfied their sexual passions'.

The trip was sponsored by the Foreign Relations Council of the Church of England ('Mask of Treachery: Spies, Lies, Buggery and Betrayal', by John Costello)

In 1930s France, the pro-Nazi faction was represented by politicians such as Edouard Pfeiffer.

Costello writes of Pfeiffer: As a connoisseur of homosexual decadence, Pfeiffer had few equals, even in Paris.

As an officer of the French Boy-Scout movement, his private life was devoted to the seduction of youth.

Joubert

According to a biography of Guy Burgess (http://www.geocities.com/layedwyer/guy.htm):

Burgess was a BBC broadcaster, an agent in MI6, and secretary to Deputy Foreign Minister Hector McNeil.

He was also an agent of the KGB.

"Burgess seemed to know everyone, the Rothchilds, Churchill, Muggeridge, Auden, Spender, Neville Chamberlain and more. "

Baden Powell

In the 1930s, many top Americans and Brits were fans of fascism.

Files released by MI5, in March 2010, show that Baden Powell, founder of the Scouts, was invited to meet Hitler after having tea with senior Nazis. (Lord Baden Powell invited to meet Hitler, MI5 files show)

In 1937, Baden Powell met the German Ambassador to the UK, Joachim von Ribbentrop.

In 1939, Baden Powell wrote in his diary: "Lay up all day. Read Mein Kampf.

"A wonderful book, with good ideas on education, health, propaganda, organisation etc."

Baden Powell told the Scouts’ International Commissioner, Hubert Martin, that the Germans were "most anxious that the Scouts should come into closer touch with the youth movement in Germany."

Baden Powell talked of his problems with the "socialist press when our boys had appeared in uniform at a Fascist Demonstration in Germany."

MI5 reported on the visit of Hartman Lauterbacher, Chief of Staff Hitler Youth, to Britain.

Lauterbacher met Baden Powell, and visited the top private school Eton and the Army Gymnastic School at Aldershot.

Two modern biographers of Baden-Powell consider him to have been a repressed homosexual, Michael Rosenthal of Columbia University and Tim Jeal. (Baden-Powell and boy scouts)

Jeal mentions an episode in 1919.

While on a visit to Charterhouse, his old public school, he stayed with an old friend, A. H. Tod, a bachelor teacher and housemaster who had taken large numbers of nude photographs of his pupils as part of a photographic record of public school life.

Baden-Powell's diary entry about his stay reads: "Stayed with Tod. Tod's photos of naked boys and trees. Excellent."

In a subsequent communication to Tod regarding starting up a Scout troop at the school, Baden-Powell mentions his impending return visit and adds: "Possibly I might get a further look at those wonderful photographs of yours."




1. Maxwell Knight, the model for James Bond's boss M, served as Director of Intelligence of the British Fascists from 1924 to 1927.

Maxwell-Knight became Deputy Chief of Staff of the British Fascists before being recruited by MI5 in 1931.

(State Secrets, Tyler Kent, Winston Churchill, Roosevelt, President ... , Domville, Knight, Mosley, Blunt ... ,
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/2WWfifthC.htm, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2004/10/12/nna12.xml )

2. Maxwell-Knight was a friend of Aleister Crowley.

From: 'One Girl's War, personal exploits in MI5's most secret section' by Joan Miller (1986) (http://www.bilderberg.org/sis.htm) we learn about Charles Henry Maxwell-Knight, formerly head of Britain's MI5 spy agency.

"His first wife Gladys, I learnt, died in the Overseas Club after some sort of occult misadventure in which the notorious Aleister Crowley was involved - certainly I'd never been willing to enquire too deeply into that incident.

"Black magic was not a subject that held any attraction for me. I accepted M's interest in it, hoping it was purely academic, but, for myself, I preferred to leave it well and truly alone: M understood this.

"When I tore up a photograph of Aleister Crowley which he had kept, as I believed it to be unlucky, he only laughed."

(Black magic, spies and child abuse)

Crowley worked for MI5. (The Great Beast)

Crowley has been described as a heroin-addicted Satan worshiper.

Joubert

In the doctrine of Aleister Crowley from 'MAGICK in Theory and Practice, Crowley wrote:

"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... 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."
(Aliester Crowley--33 degree Mason Who Knew about Human Sacrifice)

3. Jeff Wells quotes the following:

"There is an international cult that believes that the path to illumination and spiritual liberation is through the rape, torture and sacrifice of children. The cult is highly organised and protected by a network of middle- and upper-class professionals, who are either cult members, or access the 'services' of the cult (eg child porn/prostitution, rendering them vulnerable to blackmail).

"The cult is modelled on Crowley's writings, as is evidenced by the internal pseudo-Masonic 'degree' structure, the existence of OTO-like 'chapters', and the doctrine of 'strength', 'master/slave' and ritualised rape."

4. From the book ‘The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party’ by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams ( Homosexuality and the Nazi Party) we learn that the fascists are mainly homosexuals of a particular sort.

One hero of the German youth movement was Gerhard Rossbach.

Described by historian Robert G. L. Waite as a "sadist, murderer and homosexual," Rossbach was "the most important single contributor of the pre-Hitler youth movement" (Waite,1969:210).

Konrad Heiden, 'a leading authority on Nazi history', wrote that the Nazi Freikorps "were breeding places of perversion" and that "Rossbach's troop...was especially proud" of being homosexual (Heiden:295).

Rossbach's adjutant was Edmund Heines, who was known for his ability to procure boys for sex orgies.

In Treblinka, Steiner describes a Nazi administrator:

Max Bielas had a harem of little Jewish boys. He liked them young... They were dressed like little princes...Bielas had a little barracks built for them that looked like a doll's house...Bielas sought in Treblinka only the satisfaction of his homosexual instincts (Steiner:117f).

aangirfan: Hitler was Gay

Maxwell-Knight

5. In the 1930s, plenty of members of MI5 and MI6 were fans of fascism and Hitler.

Hitler was seen by some of the spooks as being a potential ally in the fight against Communism.

According to Admiral Sir Barry Domville, head of Naval Intelligence, Hitler was "absolutely terrific."

Wing Commander Frederick Winterbottom, head of MI6's air section, reportedly hoped Britain and Germany would unite against Stalin's Russia.

MI5 agent Mark Papys, Earl of Cottenham, allegedly had sympathies with the Nazis.

When reports reached MI6 that Czechoslovakia was about to be invaded by Hitler, the reports were said to have been dismissed by the head of MI6, Admiral Sinclair, as "alarmist rumours…. put forward by Jews and Bolsheviks for their own ends."

British Fascist organisations such as Sir Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists (BUF), the Anglo-German Fellowship and The Link (which reportedly included the Duke of Westminster and the Duke of Bedford among its members) were allegedly 'left alone by MI5'.

Maxwell Knight served as Director of Intelligence of the British Fascists (BF) from 1924 to 1927.

MI5 agent, James Hughes, reportedly served as a Chief of Intelligence of the British Union of Fascists (BUF) from its formation in 1912 until it was banned in 1940.

Hughs 'played a leading role in establishing BUF secret cells (modelled on those of the German Nazi Party) in the British civil service, armed forces, key manufacturing and commercial enterprises and the trade union movement.'

Joubert

6. John Hope, at Lobster Magazine November 1991, wrote about: Fascism, the Security Service and the Curious Careers of Maxwell Knight and James McGuirk Hughes.

(http://members.lycos.co.uk/mere_pseud_mag_ed/History/Hope1.htm)

Reportedly there is evidence of collusion between the British Fascists and top MI5 officers Charles Henry Maxwell Knight and James McGuirk Hughes.

Knight was primarily responsible for the surveillance of Britain's fascists.

Knight, in 1940, revealed the pro- Nazi activities of Tyler Kent and Anna Wolkoff. A number of fascists were then interned.

According to John Hope, at Lobster magazine, there was another side to Knight's encounter with fascism.

In 1924 Knight 'became a member of Britain's first fascist movement of any significance, the British Fascists (BF) and served as its Director of Intelligence from 1924 to 1927'.

Neil Francis-Hawkins, Director-General of Organization for the BUF, informed an Advisory Committee on Detainees in 1944, that Maxwell Knight "had been Director of Intelligence at the British Fascists".

Foreign Office papers show Knight's name on a list of the British Fascists' senior executives provided by two of the movement's members in September 1926 to Special Branch and Foreign Office officials.

Knight's position as the BF's Chief Intelligence officer appears in an intelligence report given to the Australian authorities in 1924, and discovered by the historian, Dr. Andrew Moore.

Knight joined the British Fascists in 1924, prior to his recruitment by the Security Service in April 1925.

Joubert

There is evidence that Knight continued to be a fascist after he left the BF in 1927.

Francis-Hawkins claims that shortly after Knight left the BF he revealed his identity as an MI5 officer and offered assistance to the BF in its work for the "Clear Out the Reds Campaign".

Knight's testimony at the trial of Tyler Kent was that his sympathies for fascism began to wane in 1935.

Bernard Porter has suggested that Knight had served an "intelligence apprenticeship". His source was John Baker White, Assistant Director and then Director of the Economic League between 1926 and 1939. White may have recruited Knight for his private 'right wing' intelligence agency.

'The line separating the private intelligence agencies of the right from the state Security Services was distinctly blurred.'

White suggests in his autobiography that the right-wing groups had close links with the fascist movement.

Joubert

Certain right wing groups, organised on military lines, conducted violent assaults on strikers and socialists.

Some of the earliest members of the British Fascists 'were drawn from the organizations of the conservative right'. Titled aristocrats and senior military personnel were members of the movement's Grand Council and Executive.

There is some evidence that the conservative right 'was more deeply involved in facilitating the growth and development of the BF than most studies indicate.'

The Duke of Northumberland's paper, The Patriot, carried out the initial recruiting for the BF.

The BF 'became a beneficiary of the links that the conservative right had with the security apparatus of the state, in particular with MI5.'


The case of James McGuirk Hughes

Hughes was the British Union of Fascists' Chief of Intelligence in Department Z of the movement, from its formation in 1932 until it was banned in 1940.

Hughes reportedly disclosed his employment by MI5 to Mosley when he applied for the position.

Hughes had first served an apprenticeship with the British Empire Union's private intelligence and counter-espionage network.

Hughs and his agents infiltrated and sabotaged trade unions and left-wing groups.

In one of his reports Hughes wrote "that we have the complete confidence and help of Scotland Yard, and in fact have received payment from them. The Assistant Commissioner (Col. Carter) considers that we are the only efficient organization.......our relations with the provincial police continue to be good....We had placed under us a number of the plain cloths (sic) men of the Glasgow police...'.


When Hughes joined Mosley's fascist movement he was an established MI5 agent.

Hughes had the job of setting up the BUF's secret cells, modelled on those of the German Nazi party and the Italian Fascisti. A plan to set up such cells in the Civil Service, the Armed Forces, key manufacturing and commercial enterprises, and the trade union movement, began in 1933.

Hughs seemed happy to use the BUF for MI5's operations against the left.

Knight joined the BF before he was recruited to MI5. Hughes' work for the fascists appears 'to outweigh the information he relayed back to the Security Service.'

There is 'no evidence at all to show that either Knight or Hughes made any attempt to undermine or sabotage the movements to which they belonged - at least before the start of World War Two.'

'For MI5 to collude with fascism was merely a continuation and extension of existing practice.'

DANI'S STORY

Dani with William, her new brother (Dani's Story)

Dani was born in 1998, in Las Vegas, to Michelle Crockett.

Michelle has military connections.

Michelle's husband was a veteran of the Vietnam war and died in 1997.

He died as a result of exposure to the Pentagon's 'Agent Orange'.

Michelle has an IQ score of 77, much below average.

Michelle doesn't know the name of the Dani's father.

("The Girl in the Window" / Wild at heart - NYPOST.com)

Michelle moved to Plant City, Florida, where she was 'frequently seen with strange men in casinos'.

(Plant City is near MacDill Airforce Base, reputed to be connected to the CIA's MK ULTRA experiments on children)

Michelle lived in a rented house with two adult sons, one of them mentally retarded, and a boyfriend.

As early as 2002, someone called the child abuse hotline about a child "left unattended for days with a retarded older brother, never seen wearing anything but a diaper."

The authorities, as usual, decided not to rescue the child.

Dani

In 2005, when Dani was nearly 7, "a neighbor saw Dani's pale, wan face appear in the window - and then quickly vanish."

The authorities were called, for the third time.

Dani's house was filled with human waste and cockroaches.

Dani, semi naked, lay on a torn mouldy mattress on the floor.

Her ribs stuck out.

Her matted hair crawled with lice.

Her skin was covered in bites, rashes and sores.

Dani was taken to a hospital. ("The Girl in the Window")

Dani today

Dani couldn't chew or swallow solid food.

She had never been to school or previously seen a doctor.

The hospital doctor now wrote: "the child will be disabled for the rest of her life."

She wouldn't make eye contact.

She couldn't talk.

Medical tests, including brain scans, found nothing innately wrong with Dani.

But, "there was no light in her eye, no response or recognition. . . . We saw a little girl who didn't even respond to hugs or affection."

According to Dani's first teacher: "She had a lot of episodes of great agitation, yelling, flailing her arms, rolling into a fetal position.

"She'd curl up in a closet, just to be away from everyone.

"She didn't know how to climb a slide or swing on a swing. She didn't want to be touched." ("The Girl in the Window")

William, Diane, Dani, Bernie

Bernie and Diane Lierow, who have young son called William, decided to adopt Dani.

When Bernie first met Dani at her school, "Danielle turned toward him and her eyes seemed to focus.

"He held out his hand. She let him pull her to her feet."

Danielle's teacher hadn't seen her warm to anyone so quickly.

Dani let Bernie push her gently on the swing.

"When it was time for them to part, Bernie swore he saw Danielle wave." ("The Girl in the Window")

That night, bernie had a dream.

"Two giant hands slid through his bedroom ceiling, the fingers laced together. Dani was swinging on those hands, her dark eyes wide, thin arms reaching for him." ("The Girl in the Window")


Bernie and Diane brought Dani home on Easter weekend 2007.

"They gave her a doll; she bit off its hands...

"They took her to the beach; she screamed and wouldn't put her feet in the sand...

"She couldn't sit still to watch TV or look at a book...

"When they tried to brush her teeth or comb her hair, she kicked and thrashed...

"She wouldn't lie in a bed, wouldn't go to sleep, just rolled on her back, side to side, for hours." ("The Girl in the Window")

Dani in her new home

In October 2007, Bernie and Diane officially adopted Dani.

After a year with her new family, Dani grew 12 inches and her weight doubled.

Dani's shoulder-length hair turned a golden blond.

Dani started going to occupational and physical therapy, to church, the mall, the grocery store, speech classes and horseback riding lessons.

Dani began to say a few words.

The first she spoke was "baaa."

William, her new brother heard Dani say, "Stop!" and "No!" He thought he even heard her say his name.

William, aged ten, taught Dani how to play peek-a-boo.

William moved out of his bedroom so Dani could sleep upstairs.

William slept in the laundry room.

Dani improved month by month.

She learnt to swim.

She learnt that her name is Dani.

Dani and William

In 2011, Dani continues to live "deep in the lush Tennessee countryside" on Diane and Bernie Lierow’s 25-acre farm. (Diane and Bernie Lierow: 'We knew that Dani needed us ... - Daily Mail)

The farm contains prizewinning Boer goats, which 13-year-old William shows in competitions, miniature ponies, chickens, and various dogs.

Dani is now aged 13.

"In the past six months, she has improved more than in the last couple of years," Bernie says proudly.

Now, she can go to the cupboard, get a glass and get herself a drink of water.

And she’s much more open; she will look at people now.

(Dani’s Story by Diane and Bernie Lierow, with Kay West, Penguin/Michael Joseph)

WILLIAM BECKFORD, SLAVES AND BOYS

William Beckford

William Beckford (1760-1844) was, at one time, the richest commoner in England.

In 1779, William Beckford, aged 19, met his cousin William Courtenay, aged 11.

Beckford fell in love with Courtenay.

Beckford and Courtenay were close friends for almost 6 years.

William Courtenay (known as Kitty)

At one point the Beckford family owned around 1600 African slaves in Jamaica.

William Beckford defended the slave trade.

The Beckford wealth came from sugar plantations, and slavery.

The Beckford family was also involved in money lending. (BBC: The Beckford's and Slavery)

Wikipedia describes William Beckford as an art collector, travel writer and sometime politician, reputed to be the richest commoner in England.

Beckford's Fonthill Abbey - a pretty big erection.

William Beckford was the author of the Gothic novel Vathek and the builder of Fonthill Abbey.

He was briefly trained in music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

He married Lady Margaret Gordon, daughter of the fourth Earl of Aboyne.

His bisexuality was revealed when his letters to the Hon William Courtenay, later 9th Earl of Devon, were intercepted by the boy's uncle.

Courtenay was described as being gay and being the most beautiful boy in England.[1]

Eventually, William Beckford's erection collapsed. And his wealth declined.

William Beckford "built the loftiest domestic residence in the world" and had "a virtual harem of boys." (William Beckford: The Fool of Fonthill - History and Literature. by Rictor Norton)

In 1781, "Beckford wanted an Oriental spectacle that would completely ravish the senses of his guests, not least so that he could enjoy a sexual tryst with a thirteen year old boy, William Courtenay, and Louisa Beckford, his own cousin’s wife."

(The Virtual Infernal: Philippe de Loutherbourg, William Beckford.)

Louisa reportedly enjoyed orgiastic 'iniquities' and 'sacrifices,' on 'young victims panting on the altar,' and on spectre raisings and demonic rituals (Parreaux 382; Mowl, William Beckford 111).

In 1784, a visitor to Beckford's home reported some "strange goings on" in Courtenay's bedroom.

Beckford was reportedly in bed with Courtenay.

Beckford moved abroad, living mainly in Portugal.


In Beckford's "thinly veiled fantasy-autobiography", The History of the Caliph Vathek, published in 1786, Beckford is Vathek and Cortnenay is Prince Gulchenrouz, who sometimes wears the dresses of Princess Nouronihar.

Beckford's mother is Princess Carathis, a witch who casts evil spells.

Vathek murders both Nouronihar and Gulchenrouz.

Gulchenrouz goes to heaven where his is surrounded by beautiful boys.

Vathek sacrifices fifty boys, "stripped and presented to the admiration of the spectators."

They are thrown over a cliff, but are rescued by a genie who takes them to join Gulchenrouz.

Vathek ends up in hell. (William Beckford: The Fool of Fonthill - Gay History and Literature)

Website for this image -William Beckford’s oriental-gothic novel Vathek (1786). "In exchange for secret knowledge and limitless wealth, the caliph ruler, Vathek , agrees to sacrifice fifty boys to the ‘Giaour’, an Islamic version of the devil. The Giaour appears to Vathek in the form of a monstrous Indian traveller, a person who confounds masculinity/femininity, human/supernatural."

When he returned to England, Beckford had "a harem of boy-servants for diversion, some picked up in England."

The boy's names were:

pale Ambrose, infamous Poupee, horrid Ghoul, insipid Mme Bion, cadaverous Nicobuse, the portentous dwarf, frigid Silence, Miss Long, Miss Butterfly, Countess Pox, Mr Prudent Well-Sealed-up, The Monkey, and The Turk.

There were rumours of orgies.

Beckford, at his Fonthill Abbey, built a tower nearly 300 feet high.

Guests of honour at the grand opening, in 1800, were Admiral Lord Nelson and his mistress Emma Hamilton.

In Portugal, Beckford had fallen in love with Gregório Franchi, a chorister at the court of Queen Maria I.

Beckford brought Franchi back to England.

Beckford asked Franchi to "go to see an angel called Saunders who is a tight-rope walker at the Circus Royal and the certain captivator of every bugger's soul. Ah!"

Franchi was asked to visit Sauders's father, and to make "a proposition for a journey to foreign parts, and even a life-annuity - all this is possible."

Beckford's letters to Franchi refer to visits to London; in 1810 he found a "little rogue" on Hounslow Heath. (William Beckford: The Fool of Fonthill - Gay History and Literature)


Rictor Norton, in 'William Beckford's Gay Scrapbooks' refers to Beckford's interest in gay activities in Britain.

Beckford kept press cuttings referring to the following:

In 1828 a Mr Seymour and his servant Mr Macklin were discovered having sexual relations in the master's dressing room.

"A certain English Marquis" left the country amidst "strange circumstances connected with his early propensities."

In 1826 a boy of sixteen, said to be the second son of an Irish Peer, was charged with having made indecent proposals to a sentry on duty at Knightsbridge Barracks.

In 1825 Rev William Hayes, of St Paul's, was "found in a disgusting situation with a boy in a lane leading to a wharf in Upper Thames-street."

In 1825, John Grossett Muirhead of St George's, Hanover Square took three boys, one aged 14 and one aged 21, to an oyster shop, where he showed them pornography and fondled them.

Muirhead was a member of the Society for the Suppression of Vice and a Director of the Auxiliary Bible Society of St George's in the Fields.

In 1816, John Attwood Eglerton was hanged after being accused of committing sodomy with a stable boy. Eglerton was a waiter with a wife and children.

William Beckford's father was Lord Mayor of London.

William Beckford's mother, connected by marriage to the Dukes of Hamilton, was a 'stern Calvinist'.

TOP UK PEDOPHILE RINGS

Right wing 'Loyalists' in the UK are linked to child abuse rings and to Israel. (Website for this image)

Journalist Chris Moore wrote The Kincora Scandal an investigation into the Kincora Children's Home in Belfast in the UK, where housemaster William McGrath, and others, abused children.

William McGrath, a Protestant loyalist and member of Ian Paisley's Free Presbyterian Church, reportedly worked for the UK spy service MI5.

Lord Victor Rothschild - spy for the UK 'and Israel'.

Reportedly, McGrath had contacts with UK spy Ted Rothschild's friend Sir Anthony Blunt, the 'pedophile' spy.

Sir Anthony Blunt, allegedly linked to child murder according to T Stokes (ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT COMING SOON)

McGrath had contacts with Sir Knox Cunningham who has been linked to pedophile rings and who was a pal of Tony Blair.

Right-wing Loyalist Sir Samuel Knox Cunningham, who befriended Blair at Fettes school.

Reportedly, the Kincora Children's Home, in Belfast in the UK, was used by the spooks as a boy brothel.

Kincora's clientele included top politicians , judges and other public figures .

"MI5... used it as a blackmailers lever." (Michael stone, MI5 and Kincora - Irish Nationalism)

McGrath was linked to right-wing protestant paramilitaries in Northern Ireland (as was Anders Breivik, reportedly).

Reportedly, the protestant paramilitaries "have long had links with Zionist gangsters and have received Israeli weapons.

"In at least one incident weapons were exchanged for intelligence material on British missile systems, and loyalists rely on Israeli-'Russian' mafiosi for supplies of ecstasy pills.

"Loyalists have also engaged in the smuggling of non-Whites into Eire in alliance with the 'Russian' mafia."
(Michael stone, MI5 and Kincora - Irish Nationalism)


Journalist Chris Moore describes McGrath's links to a man from the UK Ministry of Defence.

Colin Wallace, who worked for the UK psyops section of MI5, is linked to Kincora.

Moore describes McGrath's links to Sir Knox Cunningham who provided McGrath with funds for his paramilitary organisation.

Cunningham was an associate of the Ted Rothschild-linked Cambridge spy ring, which included the pedophile Sir Anthony Blunt.

In 1940 Lord Ted Rothschild suggested that communist Anthony Blunt should be invited to join the UK secret service.

In the book 'The Fifth Man', Roland Perry puts the case that Ted Rothschild was a major spy for Israel.

Blair

Tony Blair, who is sometimes known as Miranda, attended a private boarding school called Fettes, in Edinburgh.

One of the people Tony Blair had contact with at Fettes was Sir Knox Cunningham.

According to John Rentoul's biography Tony Blair Prime Minister, Knox Cunningham would visit the school several times a year and he liked to visit the boys' quarters.

Blair loved having discussions with Knox Cunningham.

John Rentoul quotes one of Blair's contemporaries as saying: "Cunningham was the sort of man who liked boys."

Blair at Fettes (Website for this image) Scotland on Sunday revealed that the man who taught Tony Blair history, left Fettes following allegations including fondling boys while he caned them, watching children on the toilet and becoming aroused while meting out corporal punishment. Former Fettes pupil Lord MacLean, one of the judges at the Lockerbie trial, rallied around their former teacher, saying they do not have any recollection of him ever behaving in an inappropriate manner.

According to Martin Dillon's book "The Trigger Men", Knox Cunningham was homosexual and had links to people involved in a child sex abuse ring.

According to Dillon: "William Mc Grath ... was a British Intelligence agent from the 1950s onwards...

"He sought out young men and boys..."

McGrath "knew Sir Knox Cunningham and other leading Unionist homosexuals.

"Collectively, they were part of what today would be called a pedophile ring.

"While researching my book God and the Gun, I spoke to a source about this 'ring' and he explained that there were several Boys’ Homes in Northern Ireland from which boys were picked up and taken to parties in Brighton, England.

"McGrath ... had protection from the British Intelligence community before the Troubles began in earnest.

"As my source said, 'top hats and royalty', meaning the English upper classes and people connected to the Royal Family, were part of a wider homosexual ring in which Mc Grath was an integral player."

Former UK prime minister Edward Heath.

Reportedly, a certain UK prime minister 'stopped cottaging for gay sex to protect his career."

Reportedly, in the 1970s, several newspapers claimed that the former UK Prime Minister Ted Heath, who was reported to be gay, was a regular visitor to Kincora Boys Home. (cached text )

In 1973 MI5 set up a propaganda campaign named Clockwork Orange.

The purpose of Clockwork Orange was to blackmail and control top political figures in Northern Ireland and Great Britain, including Harold Wilson and Edward Heath. (Who Framed Colin Wallace)

In October 1974, MI5's Colin Wallace refused to take any further part in the Clockwork Orange operation.

Wallace tried to alert the authorities about what was going on at Kincora.

He was sacked and he moved to England.

The husband of a friend and colleague was found dead.

Wallace was accused of murder and sentenced to ten years' imprisonment.

Top Conservative Lord Boothby, gangster Ronnie Kray and a young man.

Jewish gangsters called the Kray Twins had links to top people in the UK.

According to this source - Archives - the Krays had links to a paedophile ring.

"What was involved was the systematic abuse of ten-to-twelve-year-old boys, one of whom subsequentlybecame fairly well known as a singer.

"Another, rather less fortunate,wound up in six pieces in two suitcases...

"The paedophile ring in question had links to the Kray twins."

More information is found here -Archives

"The police uncovered a large-scale juvenile pimping operation centred on a house in a Suffolk village (Tattington) owned by Ronnie Kray.

(The twins had huge property interests in East Anglia).

"Some of the boys were obtained via a close friend of (Benjamin) Britten's in London, who named him as one of the beneficiaries of the 'service': other'customers' included Lord Boothby (who frequently shared boys with Ronnie Kray himself) and the record producer Joe Meek.

"At least two other people died in the aftermath of Bernard's murder as the twins sealed up the leaks."

Ronald Selby-Wright and Princess Margaret

At Fettes, Tony Blair was close friends with Ronald Selby Wright, a Church of Scotland minister with links to the military and to boys clubs. (Ronald Selby Wright - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

According to John Rentoul, Tony Blair, in his final year at Fettes, ran a summer camp for Selby Wright's boys' club.

Reportedly, Selby Wright was 'a persistent paedophile abusing boys at Fettes and elsewhere'.

According to The Sunday Times, 25 May 1997, "Blair’s School Mentor Was a Sex Abuser." (The Biggest Secret - Chapter 18).

Oldfield

The head of Britain's MI6, Sir Maurice Oldfield, was reportedly observed by his Special Branch guards partaking of Kincora's facilities. (The troubles: Google Books Result)

Allegedly, Oldfield shared boys with Sir Anthony Blunt, Noel Coward, several bishops, and an archbishop. (Cached)

According to "The Biggest Secret of World War II": during World war II, Maurice Oldfield was arrested with the King’s brother, the Duke of Kent, Prince George, a boyfriend to Sir Anthony Blunt.

"A policeman rounded up what he thought were 3 drunken street whores, only to find they were ... the HIGHEST in the land...

"Maurice Oldfield and the Duke of Kent ... had links to Victor Rothschild. Rothschild was Churchill’s mentor; he made Churchill’s decisions."

Margaret Hodge, who is Jewish, is one of the 'secret' rulers of Britain. She once ran Islington Council in London and is now very important in the UK parliament. She was Tony Blair's Minister for Children..

On 16 November 2008, the Mail on Sunday told us How a close male relative of Baby P is linked to a big paedophile ring

This child-abuse ring operated in Labour-run Islington, the part of London where Tony Blair once lived.

Reportedly, the ring supplied boys to top people.

(This child abuse ring, reportedly, has links to the child abuse in Jersey, which in turn, reportedly, has links to the Dutroux affair and the security services)

The close male relative of Baby P reportedly recruited boys from children's homes in Islington for the child-abuse ring, according to a secret report seen by The Mail on Sunday.

In the early 1990s, the relative, as a boy, was put in a children's home, in Labour-run Islington, in London.

All 12 of the children's homes in Islington were being used by the child-abuse ring, which reportedly had links to top people.

This ring included three pimps called Alan, John and George.

Reportedly, the relative, then aged 13, was persuaded, by money, drugs and threats, to supply the pimps with young boys.

The relative tried to blow the whistle.

Reportedly, the relative told social workers the names of boys who were being ferried from the children's homes to various parts of London (Manor Park, Tottenham, Soho and Westminster) to ‘be buggered by old men’.

Reportedly, none of the men were put under surveillance or questioned.

Whistleblowing Social worker Neville Mighty, who had received death threats, named the relative in a report.

Neville Mighty contacted Islington’s then director of children’s services, Lyn Cusack, who is married to a senior policeman.

In June 1992, Mighty was sacked.

Liz Davies, the senior Islington social worker who encouraged Mighty to go public, said:

'We got too close. There were too many powerful people involved.

'Child sex, pornography and sadism are extremely lucrative industries.'

In 1994, an independent report criticised the failure of police and social workers to help the relative.

Bryn Estyn - one of many children's homes linked to child-abuse

On 2 March 2008, Eileen Fairweather at the The Mail on Sunday had an excellent news story entitled 'I have known about Jersey paedophiles for 15 years,' says award-winning journalist.

Eileen Fairweather described the links between child abuse in Islington in London and child abuse on the islands of Jersey and Guernsey. She also suggests possible cover-ups by top police and politicians.

According to the Mail on Sunday article:

1. About 15 years ago, Detective Constable Peter Cook uncovered a child sex ring, with victims in both Britain and Jersey.

Cook's police bosses barred Cook from alerting police abuse specialists in London. Inquiries by junior detectives were closed down by senior police officers.

The child abuse ring members included an aristocrat, clerics and a social services chief. Their friends included senior police officers.

Cook managed to meet people at the National Criminal-Intelligence Squad. Little happened.

2. In February 2008, 'a child's remains' were found at a former children's home on Jersey.

More than 200 children who lived at Haut de la Garenne have described sexual and physical torture dating back to the Sixties.

3. There are the links between the child abuse at care homes in Islington, North London, and the child abuse on Jersey.

14-year-old Jason Swift, killed in 1985 by a paedophile gang, is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street home.

Two sources claimed this.

Every one of Islington's 12 care homes included staff who were paedophiles, child pornographers or pimps.

Police secretly confirmed that several Islington workers were 'major operators in the supply of children for abuse and pornography'.

Islington children were taken to Jersey 'on unofficial visits'.

Government Minister Margaret Hodge, then council leader in Islington, denounced "gutter journalists" who supposedly bribed children to lie about abuse.

(The Right Honourable Margaret Eve, Lady Hodge, MBE (née Margaret Oppenheimer; born September 1944, Cairo) is a British politician and Labour Party Member of Parliament for Barking. She was the first Minister for Children appointed in a newly created post within the Department for Education and Skills in 2001.)

5. Jersey social worker Simon Bellwood was sacked in 2007 after speaking out.

Jersey health minister Stuart Syvret was sacked after publicising a suppressed report into abuse allegations.

6. In June 1991, police in Cambridgeshire raided the home of Neil Hocquart who abused children in Britain and Guernsey.

Hocquart, along with a social worker from Jersey, supplied child pornography to a huge sex ring.

Hocquart, nee Foster, was abused while in care in Norfolk and was eventually 'befriended' by Captain H. Hocquart of Vale, in Guernsey.

Cambridgeshire police and a Scotland Yard squad raided Neil Hocquart's Swaffham Manor home in June 1991.

At nearby Ely they found his friend, Walter Clack, who was also reportedly involved with child pornography.

Police did not get a chance to properly interview these men. Hocquart died suddenly and Clack 'escaped with a £5,000 fine'.

Scotland Yard detectives related that they found at least "two or three" wills of older men who died of apparent heart attacks shortly after leaving everything to Neil Hocquart.

These deaths were never investigated.

7. Nicholas John Rabet, born on Jersey, was a friend of Hocquart's. Rabet became a childcare worker on Jersey.

Later, Rabet became deputy superintendent of islington council's home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue.

Rabet became a key supplier of children from Islington's care homes to paedophile rings.

Rabet and a colleague took children on trips to Jersey.


'Allegations mounted but nothing was done'.

Rabet befriended the widow of an American oil millionaire. This lady died after writing her will in Rabet's favour. Rabet inherited a property in Sussex, where he opened a children's activity centre. Children in Islington's care were regularly invited to stay there.

Hocquart and Walter Clack became "volunteers" at this activity centre.

Hocquart befriended one young boy called Shane (not his real name) who stayed at an islington care home.

Sussex police raided Rabet's children's centre and then contacted Shane, at his Islington children's home. Shane confirmed months of 'abuse'. Attempts to investigate further 'were thwarted by Islington Council'.

Islington 'falsely told Sussex officers it had no file material on Rabet or his alleged victim'.

The independent White inquiry into the abuse in Islington children's homes found that "at assistant director level . . . many confidential files were destroyed by mistake, although there is no evidence of conspiracy."

During the Rabet investigation, Islington refused to interview any other children in care or help Sussex police identify other children in Rabet's photos.

Police decided not to prosecute.

Shane told journalist Eileen Fairweather: "This goes right to the top. You have no idea how big this is."

Fairweather writes: "Third World police... succeeded where Britain's finest in Cambridgeshire, Sussex, London and Jersey had failed."

Rabet was arrested in Thailand in 2006 and charged with abusing 30 boys, some as young as six. Thai police believed he had abused at least 300.

Rabat was never tried. He died suddenly on 12 May 2006.

8. Two other Jersey-born social workers also worked in Islington.

One arranged sailing trips to Guernsey; the other sent children to Rabet's centre. Both were accused of abuse.

9. When Detective Constable Cook travelled to Guernsey, he met two brothers whom Hocquart 'delivered to a high-ranking, respected local man to rape'.

Reportedly no action was taken by senior police.

Jason Swift

In 1985, 14-year-old Jason Swift was killed by a child-abuse gang.

Jason is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street children's home. (Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

Sidney Cooke, Leslie Bailey, Robert Oliver, and Lennie Smith, were imprisoned in 1989 for the manslaughter of Jason Swift.

Cooke and his gang had sexually tortured and prostituted a number of boys.

The gang is believed to have killed at least nine children.[2]

Cooke was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

In 1998, Cooke was let out of prison eight years early.

There have been allegations that very powerful people have been involved in a child-abuse ring connected to Islington children's homes. ( Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

In 1982 Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) became Islington council leader.

She became a close friend of Tony Blair, who lived in Islington, a few doors away from Hodge.

In February 1990 Liz Davies and David Cofie, senior social workers, discovered evidence of sex abuse of children and reported it to a residents' meeting attended by Mrs Hodge.

In May 1990 Mr Cofie and Ms Davies were told by Lyn Cusack, assistant director of social services, to stop interviewing children about the abuse claims.

On 1 May 1997 Tony Blair moved from Islington to Downing Street.

In June 2003 Mrs Hodge was made minister for Children.
(Another minister under fire: call for Hodge to quit over child ...)

The Independent, 9 March 2008, has an article on missing children (Our children are missing: Most vulnerable youngsters are targeted) which tells us the following:

Sarah Benford, 14, disappeared from Welford House children's home in Northampton in April 2000.

She is still missing.

The UK's Police National Missing Persons Bureau has 1,418 "open cases" of missing children.

According to Police figures more than 100 children who should be in care have been missing for at least four years.

Many children who go missing are not reported to the police.

Member of parliament Helen Southworth says: "All figures on children missing from anywhere are estimates because, astonishingly, there is no requirement for data to be recorded or collected nationally."

Almost 1,000 children went missing from UK residential and foster care in 2007.

The number that went missing from care increased from 570 in 1997 to 950 in 2007.
