Over the years I've occasionally blogged, or talked about during interviews, the curious cases that have emerged from time to time about child sex rings and human trafficking- slavery - rings. we've seen a variety of seemingly disconnected stories in this regard, beginning with the infamous Franklin scandal from the late 1980s and early 1990s, how that scandal went all the way into the very highest echelons of politics, to the Saville scandal in the United Kingdom, a scandal implicating the government of the late Edward Heath, and more recently the Pennsylvania State scandal. Along the way, there were other lesser-known incidents, the Finders' group, researched by former and now late FBI special agent Ted Gunderson, and so on. And of course, percolating and swirling in the background were numerous stories about child sex abuse and pedophilia in the Roman Catholic Church, and occasionally, other churches.

I've occasionally indicated that I believe these incidents are really the isolated tips of an iceberg that in fact is one connected entity beneath the surface, and that this activity is possibly connected to other types of equally execrable activities as well. But there so far seems to have been little in the public domain to confirm these suspicions.

But this story was sent by Mr. T.M., and I suspect it has some hidden implications, which we'll explore in a moment in our high octane speculation of the day. For the moment, however, here is the story:

Arrests in Thailand-US sex trafficking ring

One gets a measure of the extent of the organization behind such activity, and of the truly tragic and execrable treatment of the victims swept up into it, with these paragraphs from the beginning of the article:

About a dozen people were arrested in cities across the U.S. on Tuesday for running what authorities called a sophisticated sex trafficking operation in which hundreds of women were brought from Thailand to America under fraudulent visas and forced to work as prostitutes to pay off tens of thousands of dollars in bondage debts.

The women — including one who was forced to have sex with strangers for 12 hours a day, six or seven days a week— were not allowed to move about freely and were "effectively modern day sex slaves," according to a redacted indictment unsealed Tuesday.

The arrests, along with the recent arrest of the organization's boss in Belgium, will effectively dismantle the operation, said Alex Khu, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Minneapolis.

"We feel pretty confident that based on the number of important-position folks we are taking down, we'll really hurt this organization," he said in an interview with The Associated Press in advance of an official announcement about the arrests. "It will take down this ring."

Tuesday's indictment charges 17 people with various counts, including conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, conspiracy to commit forced labour , conspiracy to engage in money laundering and conspiracy to commit visa fraud. About a dozen people were arrested in the Minneapolis area, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles.

Khu said his office began investigating a sex trafficking case in the Twin Cities in January 2014 and discovered it was part of an international ring and "a very sophisticated, complex network operating throughout the United States ... where women are really placed on a circuit, travelling from one city to the next."

According to the indictment, since 2009, hundreds of women were brought from Bangkok, Thailand, to several U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Washington and Dallas. The women were from poor backgrounds, spoke little English and were lured with promises of a better life.

The operation's bosses or traffickers in Thailand entered the women into a bondage debt "contract" in exchange for a visa and travel to the U.S. As part of the contract, the women would owe a debt ranging from $40,000 to $60,000 and would be "owned" by the organization until that debt was repaid.

While the Department of Homeland Security is hardly one of my favorite departments of the government, one can only give them kuddos for putting an end to this horrendous organization. Hopefully, the unfortunate women who were so brutalized and victimized will be given some sort of medical review and assistance.

What I want to concentrate on here, however, are my usual high octane speculations, or perhaps in this case it is better to qualify them as horrifying speculations. There are a number of things to note from the Yahoo article:

(1) The organization was genuinely international in extent, from Belgium, to Thailand, and the USA, and the USA component was spread across the country;

(2) a number of people were in "important positions," and presumably this means in government, for in order to make such a scheme work, penetration into various government agencies would be essential;

(3) the organization obtained fraudulent visas, which again implies not only penetration into government agencies, but access to, or acquisition of, the proper forms and specialized paper on which such forms are printed, in other words, it implies a sophisticated ability to forge official documents;

(4) such "important positions" would also comprise compromised agents at ports of entry to the USA, where such individuals' visas would not be scrutinized too closely;

(5) the circuit method was used to keep these unfortunate victims traveling from city to city.

Notably, if one looks at this list of five points, and especially the last one, one discovers remarkable similarity of modi operandi that was seen in the Franklin scandal, where again, the victims of the sex ring were shuttled around the country to service the rich and powerful.

And that brings us to the sixth point:

(6) such activities can be used to ensnare the rich and powerful, or people in key positions, through the creation of control files (Catherine Fitt's term), via videotapes, pictures, audio recordings, and so on, of their activity and participation in such rings. This suggests deep connections to intelligence agencies. One must look here for the source of much of the seemingly irreversible corruption in government: people literally are being blackmailed to vote a certain way.

In other words, the ring grows and can be used as leverage to gain power and influence.

What I am suggesting is that, stunning as the Homeland Security's coup against this ring is, I strongly suspect it goes much deeper, spreads much wider, and reaches much higher, than one can imagine, and to that end, I would hope that the investigation will consider such connections, for the Franklin scandal, I am convinced, is a part of this whole story.

See you on the flip side...

    Lest we forget, Hillary Clinton’s father went to Penn State. He even switched majors to be a phys ed teacher. While this may have been many decades ago, we know these pedophile cults have been around for quite some time and are multi-generational. The Baal worshipping pedophiles of Bohemian Grove undoubtedly trace their roots back to at least Carthage and the Phoenicians. Makes you wonder why the Romans burnt Carthage to the ground and dismantled it stone by stone. (Makes you wonder why they razed Jerusalem as well.)

    Astrologically speaking, Darth Hillary has some serious issues with her father. (Hates men, wants to protect children. Hmm?) I also wonder who is supplying the blood for Hillary’s blood transfusions? Surely it can’t be homeless people scrounging around Chelsea’s Manhattan apartment? Any reports of bloodless corpses found in New York as of late? I would imagine Hillary’s medical condition would require youthful blood and lots of it. How much blood would Vampire Hillary require to perform at a Presidential debate? I weep for these slave children. maybe the uptick in middle eastern violence is not just for ritualistic reasons to ensure an oligarchical victory in the upcoming election, but maybe it is being done on orders from Hillary’s doctors who are seeking an ample supply of youthful blood to get the soon to be empress through until November?

    thank you all. i request that you all do as i plan here. read all these comments and doc’s article again in a day or say. we’re all right and alright and putting the elephant together from all it’s part that we’re feeling in the dark.

    between this post and all these comments, my low octane speculation:

    obama’s handlers took out some of their own assets on their way out. the new boss’ handlers, same as the old boss, will have their own mind control sex slaved blackmailed assets that they will bring in and use. the new boss won’t want the old boss’ assets around getting in the way.

    turning them over to authorities for public exposure is probably more intended to give federal authorities back some massively waning credibility with the pretense that federal authorities are not part of nor entirely the problem. we can all pretend that this is proof of a govt organization making the world a better place. perhaps a couple folk in federal law enforcement were allowed to be idealists and do their proper jobs.

    considering the depth and breadth of what we know and has been proven in franklin scandal and a long list of others, they’re obviously all related. it’s another aspect of the hidden octopus’ control and grip on the key points of society.

    • zendogbreath on October 18, 2016 at 11:52 pm

      compare this corrupt industry to others less stigmatized that we know more about. how bout the illegal drug industry. think of the cash flow and who clearly controls and processes the vast majority. consider all michael ruppert, alex cockburn, gary webb and a long list of others who are probable limited hangouts like alex jones have dug up.

      that reminds me. what other advantages can be gained besides a pretense of returned credibility by using obvious limited hangouts like alex jones et al,…. to expose parts of the beast to good portions of the flock?

  5. Matrix on October 18, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    This tracks very closely to both the Epstein investigation and the charges about former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert which were pretty well suppressed in this last round of court sessions. James Corbett ( does an excellent job of summarizing key players in those networks, both filled with Powerful People. If this is the first shot at breaking open that network to the public, it could in short time lead straight to the Republican candidate for President and his on again and off again lawsuit ( for rape of a 13 year old girl on Epstein’s island. That would make for a significant October Surprise.

  6. Aridzonan_13 on October 18, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    I had a bud who was a Occult Crime Detective. He said prosecuting these people was tough. Because, they were protected by the “System”. The “System” has to be involved. Otherwise, the scope, depth and breadth of these organizations would not be as pandemic as they are. Cynthia McKinney was verbally pistol whipping Donald Rumsfeld over the fact that a large MIC contractor had been busted in the former Warsau Pact countries for sex trafficing in minors. And why they still had their governmnet contracts?? This gives you an idea of how deep the rabbit hole gets on this subject..

  7. DownunderET on October 18, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    This is one sordid story but I’m glad Joseph has covered it. There are a number of high profile cases that’s for sure, but the one that comes to mind is Bohemian Grove, which Alex Jones exposed some years back. There is no doubt that high profile elites are “lured” into situations where the act is filmed for blackmail purposes, so WHO has the footage of a certain Bill Clinton with his pants down.
    They tried to cover up the case of Jimmy Saville in the UK, but some of it “got out”, but because some of the culprits were very high indeed it went no further. Australia did a great service in creating a “Royal Commission into child molestation, a Royal Commission has just about unlimited powers of investigation, and that went all the way up the “religious chain” to Cardinal George Pell, an Australian who now heads up the Vatican Bank. What in the world prompts these people to commit these crimes, it is inconceivable that people in high places can do such things boggles the mind. I have a feeling that these practices “GO BACK” in time, and could be linked to secret societies, or ritual practices in the past that were committed, and have been pasted down to today’s elites. Hanging isn’t good enough for these vermin, they should be caught and paraded in front of the world, that is far better than hanging.

  8. LSM on October 18, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    one just needs to go back to the Marc Dutrout case (he was the fall-guy, the lowest on the totem pole) in the mid- 90’s in Belgium (not just limited to Belgium) to find out how extensive child-sex trafficking is; it’s absolutely horrific!

    I found it just amazing (sarcasm on my part) that the investigation stopped (gosh!) when even the king of Belgium (gosh!) was being implicated in being part of this human-trafficing ring-

    Sex is the tip but it’s the tip of full spectrum slavery which has never really been outlawed. Just at most rebranded it joins prison labor-manufacture, social-class labor in other words working for a boss-master always at their mercy as to will you live or die and how you will die quick or slow. In this case their payoffs were not enough or they were the sacrificial monkeys thrown to the wolves to cover for even worst criminals.

    • LSM on October 18, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      I agree with you totaly, Marcos- and Dutrout was completely the sacrificial monkey- BUT (if my read sources are correct) he only experienced limited time in prison and is now a free man- anyone else who closely investigated this hideous crime-ring was immediately marginalised or the victims who were willing to testify on their own behalf (most of them suffering from multiple personality disorders due to their hideous ordeals- any wonder why?) were all death-threatened; subsequently case closed; nothing to look at here anymore…

      • Neru on October 19, 2016 at 9:06 am

        Marc Dutroux is still in prison, it is his former wife Michelle Martin who is set loose.

        • LSM on October 20, 2016 at 5:19 pm

          Hi Neru,

          thanks for this info- so I guess we can assume Michele Martin played a much bigger role than Dutrout- I assume Martin is either her maiden name or the name of a later husband- so what role did either she or Martin play a role in this absolutely hideous scenario?

    Belgian royalty, the Bush family & powerful others in US/UK/EU are running high-level pedophile blackmail rings. Many credible sources for this assertion.

    Obama & Co. are very familiar with the above and have begun to arrest the high-level perpetrators of U.S. pedophile blackmail rings. Before Obama, my friend Ted Gunderson had mixed results in exposing such rings & getting them busted.

    A little-notice connection to pedophile blackmail rings was the murder of Antonin Scalia. See “Scalia Murdered after Obama Meeting” By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor at (“White House confrontation over FBI file leads to Scalia killing”) — and related stories at Veterans Today. An Obama adviser was a primary source.

    Others whom I know (mentioned in above article) have documented connections to Belgian royalty and the Bush family very well.

    • Neru on October 18, 2016 at 10:36 am

      Well there were good books written by journalists when the Dutroux debacle was going on. It never got past 1st edition printing and was out of circulation 6 months later.

      Today I don’t think a book of that quality would even get to the printers only made up fictionalized stuff would which got the appetite of the “immoral” growing under the local populace.

    Anyone with half a brain should have noticed by now the total moral depravity into which the entire Earth has descended. It is especially noticeable in the upper classes of every nation and their leadership. Its purpose has always been one of control, has always existed throughout history, and has always been one of the most reliable tools of the Intelligence/organized criminal organizations. It should come as no surprise that it has always permeated the Catholic church from top to bottom, which appears powerless to stop it.
    The slave trade, regardless of the type of slavery (debt, sex, etc.), has always been one of the main pillars of income/control for the J e w s (research black slavery in America and their present influence throughout the world today) and intelligence (its use of sexual blackmail) throughout history.
    It makes slaves of everyone who participates in it, not just the slaves themselves. Just like tic-tact-toe, the only winning move is not to play.

      Morels?? Since when have Morels ever been high?
      I believe that the Greeks used to talk about a golden Age.. the Égyptiens talked about a golden Age.. Was that a time when morels were high? When the Gods walked amoungst men..when they werent’ walking over our broken burnt (radioactive??) skulls.. Or when they werent sending people to war or trying to do the funky monkey with their sisters, nieces, granddaughters, or any over remotely related female.. or when they werent whole-sale .. seducing .. the local human women.. Enki.. Zeus.. I’m looking at you… How about when they were getting statues made of them and there they are holding equipement to consume/smoke/snort/drink drugs..( Since when does a SWAN look seductive Zeus? what were you thinking??). In fact… It sounds like that they had a whale of a time back in that golden age.. But not verily morily..

      Slave trade… They used to sell slaves on the temple courtyard. (Im talking Temple of Solomon times..) Male, Female and Child Prostitution was encouraged around the Temples as it filled the Temple’s coffers. Now THAT is religion.. Its all about the gold. Nothing to do with Morels..

    Belgium, my little country. Still the place to be if sordid business that can’t see daylight must be performed. I don’t think there is a politician not corrupt over here and therefore we have mandatory elections. In yesteryear even the little people could ask favors directly. The Mayor had weekly consultations for just that in exchange for your vote. Those days are long gone and the favors are just for the uper uper class. There was always somebody who knew somebody who could settle little problems, from fines to taxevasion, construction breaches solving ect, the list was endless. It was simply imbedded in our culture. All gone with the coming of the EU, corruption is only for the uppercrust nowadays.

    In my old age I understand this is not the way society should aspire to model itself towards aldough I have fond memories of that time because it worked far better then what I am seeing today. I wonder if Belgians can be taught to walk a straight line hence the import of so much foreigners?

      This news report was brought to you by…

      But fake news is taken to a whole new level when it comes to broadcast journalists in the Belgian capital. Long before I arrived in 1995, EU officials had discovered that a hugely successful way of both bribing TV journalists to regurgitate EU propaganda and then get them addicted to it, was simply to subsidize their production costs. Working for EuroNews at the time, I was less uncomfortable about this as the chain was so ridiculously pro-EU anyway. But when I witnessed how colleagues from a score of big name networks, even the BBC, had fallen into the trap of sexing up both the importance of EU events and issues, but then also speaking on behalf of the EU – almost like spokespersons – I started to realize just how little news we see across Europe from Brussels is actually genuine.

      Over the years this led to a bevy of shamefully spun stories that led the gullible public to believe that the EU gives its citizens, for example, cheaper roaming costs and cheaper air fares; or one particular favorite of mine: how the EU cares about small businesses and creating jobs. All absolute nonsense that stems from years of fake news. Confused? Me too. But what confuses me even more is why the Pentagon didn’t just go to CNN for their fake Iraqi news? Atlanta might have done it for half the cost of the British PR firm.

    Yep .. A LOT of pedophilia happening in Brussels.. Europe’s Elite? Seems that the Power Elite like to stick their weiners into little girls or boys. Its probably a visual thing, as they are so stricken and miserable to see their withered pathetic puny appendiges that they must need smaller rape victims in order to feel happy about themselves. Normally I’m not one to advocate violence, but seeing as I have my own children, I’d be more than happy to stalk the corridors of power with a pair of industriel sized power clippers..rusty ones, that arent really very sharp…

  16. Daryl Davis on October 18, 2016 at 6:54 am

    It would be interesting to know why said trafficking ring, which may have served the deep state well, would have finally been busted. What’s changed? Has Wikileaks sparked a general panic? Pangs of moral conscience? A public sacrifice intended to salvage the tarnished reputation of the FBI? Those darn Russians again? One hopes this bust represents a further turning of the tide, a gathering reaction away from moral turpitude, one which begins at the lowest levels and drags the upper levels back with it.

    • T.J. on October 18, 2016 at 10:03 am

      Daryl: What’s changed is that Obama is a lame duck and is trying to clean up & eliminate as many high-level pedophile blackmail rings as possible before he leaves.

      The arrest of Sterling D. Allan and seizure of his computer also helped. Sterling Allan provided a database & secure communications for high-level blackmailers. My friends were involved in facilitating his arrest & conviction. Interesting stories… ;-).

      • Daryl Davis on October 18, 2016 at 11:07 am

        T.J.: I hope you’re correct with regard to Obama’s good intentions; though it would seem a little less than admirable if he has indeed waited until achieving a lame duck status before sparing untold numbers of children from ongoing sexual exploitation. I can’t imagine a more pressing concern.

        But I’m glad to hear of your friends’ involvement in nabbing Mr. Allen. Hopefully this is but a small wave in the turning of a great tide. I’ve always felt that the most moral and mature society is the one that best puts first the interests of its children. All else is but sandbox squabbling of adult-bodied children.

    The mention of BELGIUM is interesting. While they try to keep a low profile, there have been a lot of “rotten” things going on in the kingdom, home to the bureaucrats of the Holy Brussels Empire, such child-molesting, false flags and massive financial fraud (look at the recent transactions of US Treasuries going through Belgium).
