“It’s Easier to Develop a Child than to Rehabilitate an Adult”: How Many Child Molestation Investigations Overlap?


Messin’ with The Kid”: Jim­my Sav­ile, Car­di­nal Kei­th O’Brien and friends

Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash dri­ve that can be obtained here. [2]

COMMENT: With Bene­dict XVI hav­ing exit­ed pre­cip­i­tous­ly, one can but won­der how many of the emerg­ing child-molesta­tion scan­dals emerg­ing actu­al­ly over­lap and what sort of pow­er-polit­i­cal  inter­ests have been uti­liz­ing those enmeshed in the affairs for black­mail and polit­i­cal and/or eco­nom­ic gain?

Among the long-time pals and sup­port­ers of for­mer Penn State defen­sive coach Jer­ry San­dusky is Sen­a­tor Rick San­to­rum. San­to­rum con­tin­ued to defend San­dusky after it emerged that he was molest­ing kids.

In FTR 559 [3], we have not­ed San­to­rum’s close rela­tion­ship with Opus Dei [4]–a secre­tive, fas­cist-con­nect­ed order that has gained great pow­er under the last two papa­cies. 

When that most sul­lied of Fed­er­al retirees for­mer FBI direc­tor Louis Freeh was appoint­ed to head the Penn State molesta­tion scan­dal, it was appar­ent that there was more to that inves­ti­ga­tion than met the eye at first.

Might there be a Vatican/Catholic Church con­nec­tion to the Penn State case?

[5]The now-dis­graced Car­di­nal Kei­th O’Brien was very close to the late child-molest­ing BBC star Jim­my Sav­ile, who presided over the pop­u­lar “Top of the Pops” show for many years. Sav­ile had been made a Vat­i­can knight by Ratzinger/Benedict’s pre­de­ces­sor, John Paul II.

Might there be a Vatican/Catholic Church con­nec­tion to the Sav­ile case?

We also note that Britain’s high­est-rank­ing Roman Catholic will not have any say in who replaces the recent­ly-resigned Ratzinger/Benedict as Pope.

One should remem­ber that “hav­ing the goods” on a well-placed indi­vid­ual such as San­dusky or Sav­ile could be of con­sid­er­able use to a poten­tial black­mail­er. The fix­ing of sport­ing events and pro­mot­ing music acts are both long-stand­ing main­stays of orga­nized crime. Both are­nas of activ­i­ty would also be of inter­est to any enti­ty involved in seri­ous mon­ey-mak­ing.

In FTR #724 [6], we high­light­ed the col­lab­o­ra­tion of one of Aus­trali­a’s most promi­nent Catholic the­olo­gians in the San­tiken­i­tan Park association–a mind-con­trol cult with which we believe Julian Assange is affil­i­at­ed [7].

Is there a Vatican/Catholic Church link to the San­tiken­i­tan Park group and/or the Nazi-linked Wik­iLeaks.

As one wag who blogged about the San­ti­nike­tan Park Asso­ci­a­tion observed; “What good is an LSD mind con­trol reli­gious cult sex­ual abuse sto­ry with­out the Catholic Church mak­ing a guest appear­ance?”

When pon­der­ing these ques­tions, remem­ber that cen­tral to Catholic reli­gious prac­tice is the rit­u­al of confession–of major inter­est to intel­li­gence ser­vices and poten­tial polit­i­cal black­mail­ers.

“San­to­rum: ‘Angel’ award for Penn State’s San­dusky”; Seat­tle PI; 11/9/2011. [8]

EXCERPT: Ex-Sen. Rick San­to­rum, run­ning for the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion, in 2002 nom­i­nat­ed for­mer Penn State defen­sive coor­di­na­tor Jer­ry San­dusky for a “Con­gres­sion­al Angels in Adop­tion Award.”

The nom­i­na­tion by San­to­rum was made in the same year that a Penn State grad­u­ate assis­tant spot­ted San­dusky alleged­ly per­form­ing a sex act with a young boy in a show­er at the university’s ath­let­ic com­plex. He report­ed the inci­dent a day lat­er to head foot­ball coach Joe Pater­no.

“Its phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple: It is eas­i­er to devel­op a child than to reha­bil­i­tate an adult,” read the cita­tion from San­to­rum in an awards din­ner pro­gram dat­ed Sept. 24, 2002.

The cita­tion was refer­ring to The Sec­ond Mile, a char­i­ty launched by San­dusky in 1977 to serve dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren. It was first report­ed Wednes­day by the Philadel­phia Inquir­er.

San­dusky has since been charged with mul­ti­ple counts of child abuse. The university’s ath­let­ic direc­tor and a vice pres­i­dent have been charged with per­jury. Pater­no, 84, coach for more than four decades, announced on Wednes­day that he will retire at the end of the year.

San­to­rum is run­ning for pres­i­dent as a social con­ser­v­a­tive and fam­i­ly val­ues cham­pi­on. He is a strong oppo­nent of abor­tion, crit­ic of con­tra­cep­tion, and out­spo­ken foe of such gay and les­bian caus­es as mar­riage equal­i­ty. . . .

“Jim­my Sav­ile and the Car­di­nal: Britain’s Top Catholic Cler­ic Was Friend of Dis­graced TV Host” by Steve White; The Mir­ror [UK]; 2/26/2013. [9]

EXCERPT: Grin­ning and giv­ing a thumbs-up, Britain’s most senior Catholic cler­ic pos­es with his friend, dis­graced pae­dophile Jim­my Sav­ile.

The snap, tak­en six years ago, emerged last night after Car­di­nal Kei­th O’Brien quit amid alle­ga­tions of “inap­pro­pri­ate acts” towards fel­low priests.

The pho­to was tak­en in Edin­burgh in 2007 as fund-rais­er Sav­ile and the car­di­nal unveiled a £375,000 vehi­cle for the dis­abled.

The pair first met in the 70s, when O’Brien was a priest in Kil­syth, North Lanark­shire – and worked with a friend of Savile’s mum.

Anoth­er priest at Kil­syth at the time has been sus­pend­ed fol­low­ing claims of abuse against two young vic­tims.
It was Car­di­nal O’Brien who ordered the inves­ti­ga­tion last Sep­tem­ber.

When Savile’s vile secrets became known, the car­di­nal called for him to be stripped of his papal knight­hood, award­ed in 1990.
Car­di­nal O’Brien quit just 24 hours before he was due to fly to Rome to help choose the next pope. . . .

“Ronald Con­way: The Hands-On Psy­chol­o­gist Who Helped the Catholic Church’s Trainee Priests”; clericalwhispers.blogspot.com; 5/17/2010. [10]

EXCERPT . . . Conway’s auto­bi­og­ra­phy says that he began his LSD exper­i­ments at St Vincent’s Hos­pi­tal. And for­mer patients say that Con­way also admin­is­tered LSD to them at the Newhaven psy­chi­atric hos­pi­tal which was sit­u­ated at 86 Nor­manby Road, Kew, in Melbourne’s inner east.

In the late 1960s and dur­ing the 1970s, Newhaven hos­pi­tal was owned and man­aged by Mar­ion Vil­limek, a mem­ber of a “New Age” sect called the San­ti­nike­tan Park Asso­ci­a­tion, also known as “The Fam­ily”. A leader of the sect, Anne Hamil­ton-Byrne, was also an admin­is­tra­tor at the Newhaven. Con­way, Eric Seal and oth­er ther­a­pists hired con­sult­ing rooms there on a ses­sional basis, and were not involved with the sect. Newhaven ceased being a hos­pi­tal in 1992.

Ronald Con­way became one of Australia’s most promi­nent Catholic intel­lec­tu­als, writ­ing books and news­pa­per arti­cles about Aus­tralian soci­ety. He also appeared in radio and tele­vi­sion dis­cus­sion pro­grams as a psy­chol­o­gist and social com­men­ta­tor.

When the church’s sex­ual scan­dals became news in Aus­tralia in the 1990s, Con­way some­times com­mented on the issues of celiba­cy and sex­ual abuse. . . .

. . . “After sev­eral ses­sions with Con­way, it was sug­gested that I under­go LSD ther­apy in Newhaven Pri­vate Hos­pi­tal as an overnight patient. It was explained to me that this ther­apy was a way to fast-track psy­cho­analy­sis and would be very help­ful in accept­ing my sex­u­al­ity. Con­way, as a psy­chol­o­gist, had no qual­i­fi­ca­tions to admin­is­ter drugs. I did not under­stand this at the time.

“Dur­ing the last ses­sion I came to believe that I had been in the pres­ence of God who autho­rized me to lead the sex­ual life which had been cho­sen for me.

“Con­way then sug­gested that I con­tinue to see him with­out the use of LSD.I explained to him that my finances were stretched and that it was not pos­si­ble. He said that it was impor­tant that I con­tinue to see him and that if I were will­ing he would see me at his home in Tor­ring­ton Street, Can­ter­bury, gratis.

“What a shock I got when one night he made advances to me and we end­ed up on the floor of his sit­ting room. The room was dec­o­rated as if it were the inside of an Egypt­ian tomb. He said this should not have hap­pened but that, as it had, we should do it prop­erly in his bed­room. It was a spar­tan room with the bed cov­ers on a sin­gle bed already turned down and elec­tric bar heaters turned on rest­ing on tables either side. . . .

. . . ”In the ear­ly 1990s, when I was 48 years of age, I was a patient in the Freemason’s Hos­pi­tal and woke up one after­noon to find Ron Con­way sit­ting on my bed hold­ing my hand. He had heard from some­one that I was in hos­pi­tal. I made it clear that I was not hap­py with his pres­ence . He explained to me that he had been fol­low­ing my life through a work col­league of mine, anoth­er psy­chol­o­gist.“Ron Con­way nev­er appeared again.” . . .
