VIP paedophile networks 'shut down police investigations which got too close', retired officers claim

High-level probes into VIP ­paedophile networks were shut down as police closed in on a number of powerful ­figures, former officers claim.
In an extraordinary development, detectives have turned whistleblower to expose how undercover operations were suddenly “canned”.
Almost 30 officers have been venting their anger online – heaping ­pressure on the probe by Scotland Yard and the Government into widespread claims of historic sexual abuse.
One former officer called Jim wrote: “This is about kids being raped by those in power that included politicians of all sorts.
“It goes to the very heart of our establishment.”
The allegations surfaced during a ­four-month investigation by the Exaro news website into a secret members-only chat forum used by former and serving Metropolitan Police officers.
Use of the locked forum is vetted so that only people who have worked in or closely alongside the force can join or see the discussions.
Along with the officers and a sixth man – a government worker who signed the Official Secrets Act – a further 11 ­policemen claimed colleagues had told them of similar cover-ups.
One, who said his investigation into a paedophile ring was shut down, claimed: “As the operation expanded up the greasy pole of high society, the job got canned.”
Shut down: A redacted discussion thread among former officers on the forum
We have protected the identities of the whistleblowers – some of whom claim that surveillance officers watching a ­paedophile ring even led them to fellow officers and a string of lawyers.
An officer with two decades of service claimed his crime squad at a station in central London was shut down because it got too close to the establishment.
And a retired sergeant with 30 years’ service said evidence of abuse from a notorious care home was “destroyed” and a detective on the case was discredited by “corrupt politicians”, “corrupt high-
ranking officers” and “religious people”.
A government worker using the false name Jonathan claimed: “The cover-up began in 1985 when operations were closed for no apparent reason except prominent persons were allegedly ­involved, and again in 1990 and again over the North Wales child abuse.
“Successive governments continued the practice, so don’t hold your breath that anything will change any time soon.”
The web discussions began in July after an officer posted newspaper claims, by child protection campaigner Chris Fay, that there had been a cover-up.
Mr Fay, of the now-defunct National Association of Young People in Care, said he was warned off claims surrounding Elm Guest House in Barnes, South West London – the alleged VIP boys brothel.
Responding to claims that Mr Fay was threatened at gunpoint, an officer known as Samantha, who had jobs including surveillance during a 27-year career, said: “I believe it. I know of instances where Special Branch crossed boundaries any police officer would find abhorrent.
“They did feel the rules didn’t apply to them. I and others have seen and heard or been present when things have been glossed over, hidden or destroyed.”
A policeman called Matthew wrote to another officer: “Dave, I don’t know if you were on 8 Tactical Support Group when we did the surveillance op on the paedophile ring but all we were following were lawyers and police officers. Oddly as the op expanded up the greasy pole of high society the job got canned.”
The axed probe took place in the late 1980s and was in a spin-off from Operation Circus, a Met investigation into the abuse of vulnerable boys lured from the ­so-called Chicken Rack – an area near Piccadilly Circus Tube station.
In August, a claim emerged from Bob, another retired sergeant with 30 years’ service. He cites a quashed probe into a care home mentioned in the Press in ­connection with alleged abuse by VIPs.
He wrote: “My position is from ­first-hand, knowing what the government and high ranking officers did to a DC who possessed solid evidence. They destroyed the poor fella, all evidence was destroyed or disappeared. Yes, it involved the care home we are all reading about.”
In October, former detective ­constable Stevie claimed: “In the 90s a middle-class paedo ring was uncovered at KF (Newham police station). It linked into a massive undercover paedo job run by (police ­officer’s name removed). The UC found it went to Cabinet level and four years of work was pulled overnight.”
A total of 11 officers who say they heard second or third-hand of cover-ups make a series of similar allegations, including the existence of a secret file dating to the 1960s of abuse claims against a celebrity recently linked to alleged historic abuse.

And it was claimed Special Branch shut down an operation linking high-placed establishment figures with abuse in 1986 or 1987, destroying all evidence.
Officers claim Operation Hedgerow – a probe which saw a barrister, a company director and others jailed over widespread abuse of vulnerable boys in 1989 – had “got very close to Parliament”.
They also claimed Operation Ore, which snared child porn perverts through credit card payments to sick websites in the early 2000s, had its “wings clipped”.
In a discussion thread in July, a Met officer called Dale wrote: “About time Op Ore was resurrected. It was squashed due to political pressure. A good time to bring it back. Should ruffle feathers.”
Frank, who served in the Met before moving to the US, added: “Op Ore had its wings clipped from the beginning. It’s time to remove political interference.”
Adam, in the Met for 30 years, replied: “Hedgerow might be more interesting, got very close to Parliament.”
The Met Police declined to comment last night.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
