PAEDOPHILIA IS A SILENT SINISTER PANDEMIC in AUSTRALIA !

COMMISSION’S HANDS AND TONGUES ARE TIED

Larry Pickering Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

Fri 23 Oct 2015 11:12:23 pm/828 COMMENTS

For each layer of abuse the Royal Commission peels back, there’s yet another more horrific layer ready to unfold… but the Commission is not game to go there. For instance, I reported here a couple of years back about where Qld’s 35th premier, Rob “Bubbles” Borbidge, fits into the gallery of paedophile rogues.

Rob Borbidge, (he was Premier Newman’s first choice as Governor) and his mates had an after-hours predilection for under-age boys, and his “mates” were none other than ex-Chief Justice, and now the Newman anointed Governor, Paul “Daphnis” de Jersey and the then Federal Court Judge, John “Doggy” Dowsett.

The group BLAZE, an acronym for “Boy Lovers and Zucchini Eaters”, received much scrutiny from the NSW Wood Royal Commission and the NCA. The Commission’s report is available on the net, so for those who say Pickering makes this stuff up because he is a bankrupt and can’t be sued, it would do them well to carry out a little research themselves into the multiple former commission and inquiry reports… and I am not a bankrupt and even if I was I could still be sued, so people are welcome to sue me, but they don’t and won’t for fear of what else will be exposed.

You’d be surprised at what else my solicitor holds.

A recent British report noted that children are being abused, “on an industrial scale”. Lord Justice George Fulford, adviser to the Queen and Privy Counsellor, is a founder of the outrageous “Paedophile Information Exchange” group known as PIE.

Justice Fulford claimed in an article that the PIE organisation, (now under investigation in the wake of the Jimmy Savile and Rolf Harris scandals) was merely a way for paedophiles to, “make friends and offer each other mutual support”.

But PIE, is openly advocating child sex be legalised down to the age of four. (Yeah, four, I had to read it again too.) These paedophile groups are not confined only to gay lobbyists but there is certainly a predominance of them who are pushing for the legalisation of child sex.

In Australia there are over 44,000 homeless children either in foster care, State care or on the streets… almost all will be abused at some time.

Almost all children in Islamic groups will also suffer some type of abuse. Almost all tribal Aboriginal children will suffer what we call abuse, where old men “educate” young girls and old women “educate” young boys. Where does “culture” separate itself from assumed decency?

As reported earlier, a former Qld Government Speaker claims to have had in his possession a copy of a video, provided by the Parliamentary Service Staff, showing Rob Borbidge entering the Annex building with one of his “friends” and in the company of two young “boys” dressed in high heeled shoes and blonde wigs.

It is believed that a copy of the video, which was in the possession of the Speaker, is now in a secure location.

Borbidge also wrote some very compromising “love letters” to young boys on official Opposition letterheads, which is an indication of how safe these people feel in their protected pursuits. The former Speaker declared, “There are three in existence. I have recovered two, but there’s still one getting around out there somewhere.” The two letters are also now in a safe location.

Still nothing has been subpoenaed by the current Royal Commission.

In December of 1984, police raided two male brothels, Brett’s Boys at Kelvin Grove and House of Praetorian at Coorparoo.

Copies of credit card receipts were kept in Police Commissioner Terry Lewis’ safe. These documents were seized by Fitzgerald Inquiry investigators. The source for this information was a solicitor representing one of the corrupt cops who was brought before the Fitzgerald Inquiry.

According to this source, Lewis’s safe contained credit card receipts for “Brett’s Boys” brothel. The receipts detailed the services as “laundry” and the credit cards were specifically described as AMEX and were noted as official “parliamentary expenses”. Nothing of that material has been subpoenaed either.

In the Kimmins Report it was claimed that boys were supplied to “Brett’s Boys” from a Philippine source. But there was another source of young boys who were bound for the paedophile networks.

At the recent Carmody Commission of Inquiry a witness by the name of Fred Feige made mention of a senior officer in the Department of Family Services, Mr Donald A. C. Smith, who it was alleged, was apportioning out young boys to the offending groups on weekends. No charges have been laid there either.

At the current Federal Royal Commission into “Institutional Responses” to Child Sexual Abuse, one witness would be happy to expand on this information. He has not been summonsed to appear and is not likely to be. He would have claimed that he was abused by one particular paedophile who was part of a group. This group was involved in an early 1980’s court case which is known as the “Case of the Three White Volvos”.

Each member of this group drove a white Volvo. The particular paedophile in question was alleged to be ABC radio announcer Blair Edmonds.

Another member of this group was Justice Underhill (known as “Justice Underpants”) who died last year. It is interesting to note who gave the eulogy at Underhill’s funeral. It was Justice Kirby who also gave the eulogy at former Governor General, Sir Zelman Cowan’s, funeral.

Cowan was also a paedophile according to Police Intelligence records and he is the GG accused of in Heffernan’s latest nameless revelations.

If you don’t believe a wall of protection surrounds the worst of paedophilia in high places, consider this: On March 12, 2002, Senator Heffernan again used parliamentary privilege to accuse Justice Michael Kirby of using a Commonwealth car to cruise the notorious “Darlinghurst Wall” where it was alleged he was seen soliciting sex from underage males.

Heffernan also accused the eminent judge of being unfit to hear cases involving child sex charges. He claimed the judge had “regularly trawled for what they call ‘rough trade’ at the Darlinghurst Wall”, and said he had personally interviewed several of Kirby’s former “rentboys”.

He also claimed that the judge often used taxpayer-provided Comcars to pick up a young male from Kings Cross and take him to the judge’s home.

Justice Kirby, a declared homosexual with a long-term partner, strongly denied the claims.

But the Comcar driver’s job record from April, 1994, showed that Justice Kirby was picked up at the Law Courts at 7pm and taken to Rose Bay. The trip, which according to the driver was via Darlinghurst, took 50 minutes.

At 11pm the car returned to Justice Kirby’s home and went back to Darlinghurst, this time only taking 20 minutes. According to an annotation, the judge “did not travel” on the return journey. (It is against Comcar rules for the designated passenger to send a guest alone.)

The document does not identify who travelled on the judge’s account. At the time, Justice Kirby was president of the NSW Court of Appeal. He was appointed to the High Court by Keating in February of 1996.

There was a second document, a statutory declaration from a man, now 29, sworn in August, 2000.

It says, “I have given written statements to the Child Protection Enforcement Agency about my sexual encounters originating from the Wall in Darlinghurst with Michael Kirby. I know Michael Kirby is a judge.

“On several occasions he took me to a unit in Darley Street at the end of the ‘Wall’. At the times Michel Kirby picked me up from the Wall, I was a young male prostitute and heroin addict. I told Michael Kirby this.”

Unfortunately for Heffernan, Standing Order 193 prohibits privileged disclosure of “imputations of improper motives or personal reflections” on sitting judicial officers. Heffernan hurriedly withdrew his claims rather than serve a jail term, he was promptly censured by the Senate and John Howard’s Coalition Government forced his resignation as a Parliamentary Secretary.

Graham Richardson’s political bed partner at the time, Fia Cummings, wrote in The Age of March 17, 2002: “The man who signed the declaration is believed to have also given evidence to police about solicitor John Marsden, but Justice David Levine rejected the man’s evidence in the Marsden case on the basis of factual errors.

“The man was among several interviewed about Justice Kirby in 1998 by the NSW police strike force ‘Cori’, formed to investigate Franca Arena’s paedophile claims.”

Ms Cumming also reported that Senator Heffernan’s interest in Justice Kirby was triggered by an approach from a concerned Comcar driver in late 1997.

Her advice that the scandal, “Appears certain to end the career of either Senator Heffernan or Justice Kirby” has been proved wrong.

Just how high this bloody wall of protection is surrounding the “elite” is anybody’s guess.

ALP sycophant, Philip Adams, gave the eulogies at the funerals of Big Bob Collins who suicided rather than face paedophile charges and at the funeral of known serial “rough-house” offender, SA Premier, Don Dunstan, who had internally injured a young boy to the extent that the poor boy was airlifted back to a Filipino hospital rather than risk admission to a local hospital here.

Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, in January, 1987 received a delegation from two investigators into paedophile claims and, during a four hour meeting, the investigators disclosed in detail the sordid backgrounds of D’Arcy, Borbidge and Ahern. Bjelke, according to reports seemed unmoved. As far as Borbidge and Ahern are concerned, again nothing has happened.

Family Services official, Donald A. C. Smith (known as “The Gatekeeper”) had the final say on which children received weekend passes from orphanages and youth detention centres. This was well known but again no charges have been laid.

The current Gillard Royal Commission into paedophilia was designed to throw light on Abbott’s catholic “mate” George Pell, although there is no evidence that Pell himself dabbled in paedophilia.

Pell is accused of protecting paedophiles by keeping them hidden in alternating parishes.

The Commission has concentrated so far mainly on religious “institutions” and has not encroached on the networks within Parliaments, the judiciary, high-profile corporations, well-known television celebrities or Muslim or Aboriginal communities.

We should be discovering the awful extent to which innocent and mostly homeless children, or children in State care, have been abused, but we are nowhere near that extent! Some horrific tales leak out from within the entertainment industry that cannot be verified as police are suddenly told, without reason, to drop their investigations.

If only the Commission’s terms of reference could be broadened from the Gillard Government’s limited “institutional responses” caveat, we might see some big names, including an ex-Prime Minister in the dock (and most know who that is).

As long as some groups remain protected from the law then paedophiles will be attracted to those groups… and that is clearly what has happened and it is still happening. Things are changing in the UK.

But don’t hold your breath down under

Who is the former Australian Prime Minister–judges who are paedophiles?

http://kangaroocourtofaustralia.com/2015/10/25/who-is-the-former-australian-prime-minister-and-judges-who-are-paedophiles/

“Every Commonwealth attorney-general since Philip Ruddock (2003) had seen the list”.

This indicates a PM before 2003 … all the clues lead to Howard  Keating  Hawke ! … UPDATE !

Have you already forgotten the ALP’s heavyweight Bill Collins attack on the former Governor General, Bill Hayden for stating that Paul Keating was not a poofter as the young man he was seen having lunch with was his son!!!

Have you forgotten that once Paul Keating left office he separated from his wife?

Now who was the Malaysian Opposition leader to Dr Mahatir who was goaled and had the nick-name of Keatings bumboy? Abraham or something similar.

Forget Bob Hawke, even before he left Hazel he was banging his biography writer Blanche. Forget Malcolm Fraser, he was far too monotonous, and as for that ‘Little’ Johnny Howard he still has his wife who was sterile due to a condition a girl gets from being too promiscuous.

That only leaves good old Paul Keating with his piggery and residing in Indonesia. … Andrew S MacGregor

Abbott+Brandis had a secret meeting with paedophile protector Cardinal Pell … Why ?

http://kangaroocourtofaustralia.com/2015/07/26/tony-abbott-and-brandis-both-secretly-met-with-paedophile-protector-george-pell-why/

Liberal Senator Bill Heffernan claimed in Parliament on Tuesday (19/10/15) that he has a police list of 28 prominent people that includes a former Prime Minister and current judges that are suspected of being paedophiles.

This is dynamite and an issue that will not go away until it is dealt with in full in an open and public manner.

There is enough detail in Senator Heffernan’s allegations to make them very credible. Some of the details are:

The list “formed part of police documents that had been “signed off” by Gary Crooke, QC, the former senior counsel assisting NSW’s Wood royal commission into police corruption in the 1990s. Mr Crooke declined to comment when contacted by Fairfax Media on Tuesday.”

The list includes a former Australian Prime Minister, judges, members of the legal fraternity and others.

Every Commonwealth attorney-general since Philip Ruddock had seen the list”. This seems to have been confirmed by Philip Ruddock (2003) and Former Labor Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus.(2013)

Senator Heffernan “accused former royal commissioner Justice James Roland Wood of refusing to investigate lawyers who had allegedly attended a Kings Cross “boy brothel”.

The name of the club was Costellos and was a known “boy brothel” attended by members of the Sydney legal fraternity. (Click here to read more)

Former Royal Commissioner Wood denied the allegations by Senator Heffernan, but not outright.

“Mr Wood could not recall if the alleged list had been raised at the 1995 commission but said: “I reject that we failed to investigate anyone that fell within our terms of reference.”

That is a very weak denial by Mr Wood and allows him plenty of wriggle room to change his story later down the track if needed.

Former Australian Prime Ministers

“In October 2012, Labour MP Tom Watson stood up in the British House of Commons and lobbed a grenade – metaphorically speaking.”

“Tapping a sheaf of paper in his hands, he told the Prime Minister that police had – or used to have – a file of evidence containing “clear intelligence suggesting a powerful paedophile network linked to Parliament and No. 10″.” (Click here to read more)

Tom Watson’s 2012 address to the UK parliament sparked a number of inquires that continue as of today. Then there is the Jimmy Savile scandal which resulted in the ongoing paedophile investigation Operation Yewtree which also helped catch Rolf Harris.

Then there is Prince Andrew’s links to a paedophile network and allegations he is a paedophile. (Click here to read more) With what is happening in the UK and given Senator’s Heffernan’s police list it is very conceivable that there is a paedophile ring at the highest levels of government in Australia.

Suspected paedophiles is the judiciary / legal fraternity. Some examples are:

Suspected paedophile Judge Garry Neilson

In July 2014 I wrote an article titled: “Has Judge Garry Neilson outed himself for being a paedophile given he implied incest and paedophilia are OK?” (Click here to read more)

In December 2015 I wrote a follow-up article: “Premier Mike Baird & Chief Justice Bathurst fail to act on paedophile supporter Judge Garry Neilson” (Click here to read more)

So where is it at now? Judge Garry Neilson received nothing more than a reprimand and continues to work as a judge. (Click here to read more) That’s the judicial and political system at work protecting their own.

Paedophile protector and former NSW Attorney-General Greg Smith. Currently a barrister

In 2012 Greg Smith who was then the NSW Attorney-General attacked the credibility of child victim of Father Finian Egan who is Mr Smith’s friend. Greg Smith said she was only after money in an attempt to defend Father Egan. I wrote an article titled“Protecting paedophiles the judicial way. Justice Ken Taylor and the Attorney General Greg Smith.” (Click here to read)

Father Finian Egan was convicted of being a paedophile in 2013 and sentenced to 8 years jail with a minimum of 4 years for abusing numerous girls.

Tony Abbott and George Brandis

In July 2015 I wrote a post titled: “Tony Abbott and Brandis both secretly met with paedophile protector Cardinal George Pell. Why?”  The title says it all and raises many questions.

In just the 3 examples above we have numerous people with serious questions to answer which should be done at a judicial inquiry specifically for the legal fraternity. Some of those questions are:

  1. So why did Greg Smith attack one of the victims in an attempt to defend a paedophile and should Greg Smith be allowed to work as a barrister?
  2. Why has Premier Baird allowed Judge Garry Neilson, who at best is sick and demented, to continue to work as a judge?
  3. Given the list Senator Heffernan has relates to alleged paedophiles in NSW why has Premier Baird been totally silent on the issue?

Then there is regular stories in the media about paedophiles getting reduced sentences, suspended sentences and bail when they have pleaded guilty.

The judges and prosecutors who do this or allow it to happen need investigating.

A dangerous game for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull if he fails to act

The matter cannot be swept under the carpet and has to be investigated as it won’t go away until it is dealt with the same as it hasn’t gone away in Britain. If PM Turnbull tries to cover it up then he owns it and is part of the problem. To be left as it is will smear the name of all former Prime Ministers and eventually at least one or two of them will demand an inquiry you would think.

There is a lot more to come in this story. It’s just a matter of time.

Tony Abbott and Brandis both secretly met with paedophile protector George Pell Why?

Federal Attorney-General Senator George Brandis QC secretly met with known paedophile protector and alleged paedophile Cardinal George Pell in May this year. It was only reported on Monday (20/7/15) because Brandis has spent the last 3 months trying to conceal it.

It is almost identical to Tony Abbott lying in an interview in 2004 on the ABC’s 7.30 Report about a secret meeting he had with George Pell before the 2004 Federal Election.

George Brandis should have never been anywhere near George Pell for many reasons. Not the least of which is that Pell is a sick and perverted person and a key witness at the $500 million Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

It causes major headaches for a lot of people including Prime Minister Tony Abbott who is also a long-time friend of Cardinal Pell. I find it impossible to believe that George Brandis would have met with Cardinal Pell without Tony Abbott’s knowledge and approval. Be that as it may, Prime Minister Abbott certainly knows about the meeting now and has said nothing which also suggests he has known for a long time.

The problem will not be going away as many sexual abuse victims are very upset about it and George Pell is due to give evidence at the Royal Commission again sometime before Christmas. It is guaranteed that Pell will be asked about the May meeting with Brandis when he is next at the Royal Commission and that will raise further questions for Brandis and Tony Abbott.

Channel Ten Report on Monday 20/7/15

(Click anywhere on the above video to watch)

Channel 10 have a slightly longer report on their website where at the beginning they talk about Pell being accused of protecting paedophiles and at the end about Brandis’ office “only disclosing the lunch after persistent enquiries from Channel 10″. (Click here to watch)

George Brandis knew he should not be meeting with George Pell

It is not like George Brandis did not know Pell was a witness at the Royal Commission. Pell already gave evidence in March and August last year and was put on notice in May this year that he would be required for further evidence later this year.

Also, when the Royal Commission makes recommendations to the government Brandis will be having a substantial say in what recommendations they will implement. As a QC Brandis is fully aware that he should never have met with George Pell for legal reasons such as perceived bias.

Tony Abbott’s friendship with George Pell and the Liberal Party connection

In September 2013 I wrote the below in an article :

“Tony Abbott and George Pell have a history of working together in politics. Before the 2004 election Tony Abbott gave an infamous interview on the ABC’s Lateline where he was caught lying and deceiving in relation to a meeting with George Pell. A couple of days after the meeting George Pell was a signatory to a letter criticising the Labor Party.” (Click here to read more) Below is the video showing Tony Abbott lying.

(Click anywhere on the above video to watch) (For the longer transcript version click here)

Given Tony Abbott has previous history of telling a lie trying to conceal a meeting with George Pell did he tell George Brandis to try and conceal his meeting with Pell?

Questions that need to be answered regarding the George Brandis / Cardinal George Pell meeting

What does Abbott know about the meeting? What did Brandis say to Pell at the meeting? Did Brandis say to Pell that there is no need for Pell to worry as any negative recommendations by the Royal Commission against Pell and the Church will be swept under the carpet? Did Brandis pass on any messages to Pell from Tony Abbott at the lunch or pass on any message to Tony Abbott from Pell after the lunch?

Give credit where it is due

It must be noted that in September 2014 at the request of the Royal Commission the Federal Government led by Prime Minister Tony Abbott extended the Royal Commission for 2 years until 2017. (Click here to read more)

Alleged paedophile George Pell and his support for paedophile priests

Confessed paedophile Gerard Ridsdale and his supporter George Pell go to court

This article is not about George Pell and his recent actions are well-known so I won’t go too in-depth but his background is highly relevant to the article so I will cover a few parts. George Pell supported serial paedophile Gerard Ridsdale even when he was facing criminal charges as the above photo shows.

I wrote an article in March last year regarding Pell’s evidence at the Royal Commission which starts off:

“Cardinal George Pell, who was investigated in 2002 for sexually assaulting a 12 year-old-boy in 1961, gave evidence yesterday (24/3/14) at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. It is a bit rich to call what came out of George’s mouth “evidence” given almost every second word would have to classified as perjury.” (Click her to read more)

(Click anywhere on the above video to watch)

Another article I wrote in September 2013 which has a lot of background information is titled Tony Abbott and his friend Cardinal George Pell. Perceived bias for the Royal Commission into child sex abuse (Click here to read)

Is George Brandis a paedophile?

As we now know paedophilia goes to the highest levels of government in England so when members of parliament act as strange and in the circumstances that Brandis has I think it fair to ask the question about them.

Brandis is divorced with 2 children and his own sexuality is the subject of rumour or at least that is what the Sydney Morning Herald said in an article in 2013.

“Those who know him well insist occasional gossip about Brandis’s sexuality is baseless.” And “Don Markwell says he and Brandis have discussed sex only once in more than 40 years of friendship.” (Click here to read more)

I would like to know what those rumours are and whether or not a dodgy meeting with Pell is relevant.

The only rumour that I know of is that George Brandis is gay and was caught in bed with another man at university. If that is true who cares and he wouldn’t be the first gay person to get married and have children. But maybe the other rumours are a lot more than that.

Why George Brandis met with Cardinal Pell and why he tried to cover it up is unknown so all we can do is speculated to try to get to the truth and so we should as it is disgusting and needs to be exposed.

There will be suspicion about anyone who meets with George Pell. Even worse if they are the Federal Attorney-General

Everyone knows that the Catholic Church are protecting paedophiles on a huge scale. Now and in the past. I wouldn’t go anywhere near George Pell in a million years unless it was to try to expose his criminal conduct further.

George Brandis as put the credibility of the $500 million tax payer funded Royal Commission in jeopardy. Brandis having lunch with Cardinal George Pell has given credibility to a person who will go down in history as one of the biggest paedophile protectors the world has ever seen.

Time for action

Tony Abbott and Brandis need to come clean now. The longer they wait the worse it will become. The above story is dynamite waiting to go off and it will sometime in the not too distant future I expect.

If this was a court case afoot the first question people would ask is: Has George Brandis and/or Tony Abbott interfered in the administration of justice. The Royal Commission isn’t a court case but it is the next best thing and people will be wondering for a long time if Brandis and/or Abbott have interfered with it. At least until they say what happened at the meeting with Brandis and Pell.

PAEDOPHILIA IS A SILENT SINISTER PANDEMIC

Wed 11 Dec 2013 12:00:27 pm/348 COMMENTS

Not many things can surprise me. I’ve been around a long while and have done just about everything so, after broaching the subject of paedophilia and having had a thousand wicked stories of child abuse hit my desk, I sat here gobsmacked thinking all this just can’t be true!

So I rang everyone I knew, and some I didn’t know, who worked in the field of broken lives. “Surely this can’t be true?” I asked.

“Can I talk off the record?”, was one response. “You don’t know the half of it”, was another. “Just don’t go there, Larry.”

I was actually being told by people who should know that it was indeed true.

So, in disbelief, I put up a poll on Pickering Post asking: “Have you ever been indecently interfered with as a child? YES or NO.” I thought maybe 3 or 4 percent would say yes.

For 24 hours the YES answer has been hovering around a staggering 30 per cent.

There is no reason for thousands of people to lie about something that would have adversely affected their lives.

There is something seriously wrong here but the polling seems to confirm what is on my desk and in my inbox.

No sooner do I think, “Well, that information MUST be a load of bullshit”, a mountain of corroborating evidence from credible sources follows it! My nose for bullshit is obviously faulty.

I don’t let my three youngsters near churches or scout halls or that dodgy bloke up the street, so I have done my job. Crumbs, have I? I clearly haven’t!

This canker permeates every level of society, it knows no demographic.

The judiciary, parliaments, the aristocracy, the entertainment industry is riddled with it, there is no corner where a child is safe from these extremely clever predators.

What is it in the (mostly male) genetic makeup that craves sexual dominance over an innocent child? Time for some lateral thinking:

Historically, parts of Europe, all of the Middle East and much of the Asian sub continent openly practised this bastardry.

It is commonplace among Aboriginal and probably most African tribes.

South American cultures included their children in sacrificial ceremonies.

Sophisticated networks and cells of paedophiles still operate freely within the West. There are influential groups here in Australia advocating under-age sex be legalised.

These people are not from disadvantaged or oddball groups… they are names, big names, household names!

They are intelligent people and smart enough to avoid prosecution.

They dabble in the occult and use LSD to ensure a child can never be a credible witness.

Royal Commissions may well pinpoint myriad instances of child abuse, but try prosecuting the perpetrators.

It’s not that easy when the child has been mentally manipulated and thirty years later the criminal is dead.

How many little lives are being ruined tonight?

Larry Pickering Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
