Are Governments Using Evidence of Homosexuality and Child Pornography to Blackmail People … Including High-Level Officials?

Sexual Blackmail Is Apparently Common

The Express reported last month:

British security services infiltrated and funded the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange in a covert operation to identify and possibly blackmail establishment figures, a Home Office whistleblower alleges.

The former civil servant has told detectives investigating the activities of paedophiles in national politics that the Metropolitan Police’s Special Branch was orchestrating the child-sex lobbying group in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

The whistleblower … says he was also warned off asking why such a notorious group was being handed government money.

***

Whistleblower Mr X, whose identity we have agreed to protect, became a very senior figure in local government before retiring a few years ago.

***

He has given a formal statement to that effect to detectives from Operation Fernbridge ….

***

“And he said PIE was being funded at the request of Special Branch which found it politically useful to identify people who were paedophiles….”

This has been going on in the UK for some time.  Specifically, Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885 made gross indecency a crime in the United Kingdom, which included male gay sex.  The Amendment was so frequently used to blackmail gay Brits that it was dubbed the “Blackmailer’s Charter“.

It’s not just the UK …

There is widespread speculation that Pope Benedict resigned because of sexual blackmail.

And the American government has a long history (i.e. J. Edgar Hoover and many others) of blackmailing people – including high-level officials – with knowledge of their sexual peccadilloes.

Wikipedia notes:

The Lavender Scare refers to the fear and persecution of homosexuals in the 1950s in the United States, which paralleled the anti-communist campaign known as McCarthyism.

Because the psychiatric community regarded homosexuality as a mental illness, gay men and lesbians were considered susceptible to blackmail ….

Former U.S. Senator Alan K. Simpson has written: “The so-called ‘Red Scare’ has been the main focus of most historians of that period of time. A lesser-known element . . . and one that harmed far more people was the witch-hunt McCarthy and others conducted against homosexuals.”

FBI head Hoover was famous for blackmailing everyone … including politicians.  The New York Times reports:

J. Edgar Hoover compiled secret dossiers on the sexual peccadillos and private misbehavior of those he labeled as enemies — really dangerous people like … President John F. Kennedy, for example.

Alfred McCoy – Professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison – provides details:

Upon taking office on Roosevelt’s death in early 1945, Harry Truman soon learned the extraordinary extent of FBI surveillance. “We want no Gestapo or Secret Police,” Truman wrote in his diary that May. “FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail.”

After a quarter of a century of warrantless wiretaps, Hoover built up a veritable archive of sexual preferences among America’s powerful and used it to shape the direction of U.S. politics.  He distributed a dossier on Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson’s alleged homosexuality to assure his defeat in the 1952 presidential elections, circulated audio tapes of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s philandering, and monitored President Kennedy’s affair with mafia mistress Judith Exner. And these are just a small sampling of Hoover’s uses of scandal to keep the Washington power elite under his influence.

“The moment [Hoover] would get something on a senator,” recalled William Sullivan, the FBI’s chief of domestic intelligence during the 1960s, “he’d send one of the errand boys up and advise the senator that ‘we’re in the course of an investigation, and we by chance happened to come up with this data on your daughter…’ From that time on, the senator’s right in his pocket.” After his death, an official tally found Hoover had 883 such files on senators and 722 more on congressmen.

***

With a few hundred cable probes and computerized decryption, the NSA can now capture the kind of gritty details of private life that J. Edgar Hoover so treasured and provide the sort of comprehensive coverage of populations once epitomized by secret police like East Germany’s Stasi. And yet, such comparisons only go so far.

After all, once FBI agents had tapped thousands of phones, stenographers had typed up countless transcripts, and clerks had stored this salacious paper harvest in floor-to-ceiling filing cabinets, J. Edgar Hoover still only knew about the inner-workings of the elite in one city: Washington, D.C.  To gain the same intimate detail for an entire country, the Stasi had to employ one police informer for every six East Germans — an unsustainable allocation of human resources. By contrast, the marriage of the NSA’s technology to the Internet’s data hubs now allows the agency’s 37,000 employees a similarly close coverage of the entire globe with just one operative for every 200,000 people on the planet.

***

In the Obama years, the first signs have appeared that NSA surveillance will use the information gathered to traffic in scandal, much as Hoover’s FBI once did. In September 2013, the New York Times reported that the NSA has, since 2010, applied sophisticated software to create “social network diagrams…, unlock as many secrets about individuals as possible…, and pick up sensitive information like regular calls to a psychiatrist’s office, late-night messages to an extramarital partner.”

***

By collecting knowledge — routine, intimate, or scandalous — about foreign leaders, imperial proconsuls from ancient Rome to modern America have gained both the intelligence and aura of authority necessary for dominion over alien societies. The importance, and challenge, of controlling these local elites cannot be overstated. During its pacification of the Philippines after 1898, for instance, the U.S. colonial regime subdued contentious Filipino leaders via pervasive policing that swept up both political intelligence and personal scandal. And that, of course, was just what J. Edgar Hoover was doing in Washington during the 1950s and 1960s.

***

According to James Bamford, author of two authoritative books on the agency, “The NSA’s operation is eerily similar to the FBI’s operations under J. Edgar Hoover in the 1960s where the bureau used wiretapping to discover vulnerabilities, such as sexual activity, to ‘neutralize’ their targets.

The ACLU’s Jameel Jaffer has warned that a president might “ask the NSA to use the fruits of surveillance to discredit a political opponent, journalist, or human rights activist. The NSA has used its power that way in the past and it would be naïve to think it couldn’t use its power that way in the future.” Even President Obama’s recently convened executive review of the NSA admitted: “[I]n light of the lessons of our own history… at some point in the future, high-level government officials will decide that this massive database of extraordinarily sensitive private information is there for the plucking.”

Indeed, whistleblower Edward Snowden has accused the NSA of actually conducting such surveillance.  In a December 2013 letter to the Brazilian people, he wrote, “They even keep track of who is having an affair or looking at pornography, in case they need to damage their target’s reputation.” If Snowden is right, then one key goal of NSA surveillance of world leaders is not U.S. national security but political blackmail — as it has been since 1898.

And the NSA tracks people’s porn-viewing habits in order to discredit activists.  The NSA also keeps nude and suggestive photos of people in order to blackmail them.

The Associated Press notes:

The stockpiling of sexually explicit images of ordinary people had uncomfortable echoes of George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” where the authorities — operating under the aegis of “Big Brother” — fit homes with cameras to monitor the intimate details of people’s home lives.

***

The collection of nude photographs also raise questions about potential for blackmail. America’s National Security Agency has already acknowledged that half a dozen analysts have been caught trawling databases for inappropriate material on partners or love interests. Other leaked documents have revealed how U.S. and British intelligence discussed leaking embarrassing material online to blacken the reputations of their targets.

Bill Binney – the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, a 32-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, the senior technical director within the agency and managed thousands of NSA employees, an expert on spying by the Soviets, interviewed by virtually all of the mainstream media, including CBS, ABC, CNN, New York Times, USA Today, Fox News, PBS and many others – told Washington’s Blog:

This is just one of the ways to make controlling people possible.  Standard KGB/Stasi tactics.

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds alleged under oath that a recently-serving Democratic Congresswoman was secretly videotaped – for blackmail purposes  – during a lesbian affair. There have been allegations of blackmail of gay activities within the U.S. armed forces for years.

And Yahoo News reported in 2010:

A 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation into the purchase of child pornography online turned up more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department — including some with the highest available security clearance — who  used credit cards or PayPal to purchase images of children in sexual situations. But the Pentagon investigated only a handful of the cases, Defense Department records show.

***

But the DCIS opened investigations into only 20 percent of the individuals identified, and succeeded in prosecuting just a handful.

What about the other 80 percent?  Were they blackmailed?

Yahoo continues:

Without greater public disclosure of how these cases wound down, it’s impossible to know how or whether any of the names listed in the … papers came in for additional scrutiny.

***

According to the records, DCIS prioritized the investigations by focusing on people who had security clearances — since those who have a taste for child pornography can be vulnerable to blackmail and espionage.

***

At least some of the people on the … list with security clearances were never pursued and could possibly remain on the job ….

  • I’ve maintained from the start of the Snowden Doc releases that the only possible purpose for spying on such a scale is the creation of government informants. And every additional drip of info only adds to that conclusion, no matter how badly Team Snowden resists it. Why spy on Muslim American leaders? To create informants. Why spy on tech savvy Tor users? To create informants. This is not justifying the spying, it is explaining it. But that is evidently not in game plan for Team Snowden. Nope, we are to encrypt everything and “reform” the spying — and leave the informants in place. I don’t get it.

    You forgot Russel Tice’s disclosure that on order passed his desk to spy on Obama. Combine this with Wayne Madsen’s research into Obama’s Chicago highlife, and there you go. A puppet glove president ! If Obama got uppidy after being installed by the ptb, they’d always have some hidden strings to pull. And I imagine , as Binney says, this is only one among many methods of control, including threats against person and family, up to and including assassination. Breitbart and Hastings were obvious assassinations, not to mention gary webb. What’s absolutely amazing is the american people’s gullibility. How many heart attacks ( the cia’s has a ice dart heart attack pistol in it’s inventory ) single car crashes ( danny jowenko comes to mind ) , murder suicides ( phil marshall comes to mind ) and accidental plane crashes ( this is a real favorite and the list is way too long !) will pass before they realize their government is nothing more than a criminal cartel.

      “If Obama got uppidy after being installed by the ptb, they’d always have some hidden strings to pull”

      Replace Obama’s name with anybody on the hill. People wonder how the administration
      can get away with so much and nobody does anything about it up there.

      People’s gullibility is just goodness but they are waking up. Most are still in a
      state of disbelief as things have happened quickly. Trust is a noble quality.

  • The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators attempted to expose the network in 1989 and 1990, but the legislators’ efforts were followed by a rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering responses of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI and Justice Department, which effected an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network.

    The truth is that virtually every one in Politics, Judicial system, etc has been compromised. The Democrat and Republican Party apparatus’ will not support people who have not been compromised.
    I have even seen the Republican Party support the compromised Democrat over a non-compromised Republican. Likewise, the Democrats have supported a compromised Republican over a non-compromised Democrat. If you want support from the Parties, you have to provide them with damning evidence they can control you with.

    It’s Rule-By-Fear! Babylon is a Fear-Based System and easily run in a World FULL of Brainwashed Simpletons and Numb-nutted Cowards!!!
    Half the folks in DC would be in Prison or 6 feet deep for treason if this were not the TRUTH!!!
    Along with 75% of “The Street”!!!
    What an Utterly Detestable Joke the Late Great USofA has become?!
    Dare one say Al-Queida is more respectable!!!

    The answer to the title of this article is ‘yes’. The ruling elites on earth are deranged, sick, satan worshipping sickos. You would have thought when the RCC was caught in that scandal it should have been enough to end that evil empire and where is it today? Still the wealthiest and most powerful institution on earth. What does that say about humanity?

    These days, the images could just be made on petaflop computers by software. If they don’t have any evidence, they’ll just make it up!

    This the thing: Even the dark net ( or deep web ) isn’t safe anymore…not from the NSA, Homeland Security, and the FBI ( all of whom share each other’s cyber-technologies, forensic tools and investigative techniques!!! ) Even the Centers for Missing and exploited Children and the Internet Crimes against Children task-forces now have unfettered access to the same ultra top secret crime fighting technologies, forensic tools, and spyware that was developed by the NSA for law enforcement purposes. Remember, Edward Snowden WARNED us all about this. The most “damaging” thing that the authorities now use to spy on everybody is a cyber technology called “prism.” Snowden may have blown the whistle on prism, but they are still actively using it to set folks up and then hunt them down. The way “prism” works, the dark net simply gets “scanned” right along with the rest of the internet!!! With “prism”, there ARE no effective barriers!!! So you better just BEHAVE youself, and hope that they don’t unfairly entrap you!!! That’s happening to innocent people all around the world, particularly in the “People’s Republic of Kalifornia”, and Great Britain. Just go on Youtube and type in “FBI ( or NSA )child porn entrapment”, and check it out!!! And, believe me, there is NO DEFENSE and NO WAY TO EFFECTIVELY “DODGE” THEIR BILLION DOLLAR SPYWARE!!! People are still using the dark net, thinking that the TOR nodes are effectively “cloaking” them, only to find themselves in the back-seat of police cars, and FBI vans!!! In short, folks are getting “busted left and right all over the place!!! This is literally sweeping the nations.
    Here’s the best advice: If you have access to the dark net ( via TOR, Freenet, etc, ), it’s time to get RID of it before they CATCH you with it! There’s just no DEFENSE against this. Snowden warned us.
