The Larry Nassar Scandal within the Larger USA Gymnastics Pedo-Debacle and Massive Criminal Cover-up
From the damage control files comes another feeble “too little, too late” gesture in the longtime pedo-enabling USOC,[cciii] USAG[cciv] and MSU[ccv] announcements that they’re funding support services to the hundreds of Dr. Nassar victims in the wake of the US Gymnastics catastrophe. Where were they years ago when abused victims’ claims were all falling on deaf ears? Behind this newfound pledge to “protect the children” is a self-serving desire to save themselves by rebuilding their tarnished images. As part of this image enhancement strategy, the US Olympic Committee is also doubling its funding for the US Center for Safe Sport as the “independent resource” for Olympic abuse prevention and abuse investigation after Congress elected to un-finance Safe Sport when passing its mandated reporting law. In efforts to appear to be cleaning house, the Colorado Springs Olympics leadership also canned a few “bad apples” in Blackmun, Woessner and Hogan along with USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny in March 2017[ccvi] and his entire USAG executive board in January 2018.[ccvii]
But that’s just scratching the surface. While true safe sport and child abuse advocates laud their forced resignations as an essential first step in the right direction, ridding a few powerful figures within the enormous Olympic criminal cartel still leaves hundreds if not thousands of guilty, likeminded pedophile-enablers and pedophiles still actively and deeply entrenched doing further damage to children within the worldwide Olympic umbrella.
Irvine, California attorney John Manly who has represented many of the US Gymnastics victims echoes this sentiment:
This is a positive development. It happened because of the courage of the victimized athletes to speak out. However, those responsible for the toxic atmosphere of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse and assault of athletes at the USOC and many sport national governing bodies remain in place. There needs to be a full and independent investigation, overseen by Congress, to hold those responsible accountable for allowing so many athletes to be victimized.[ccviii]
Dubbed as history’s all-time biggest sex abuse sports scandal ever[ccix] belongs to USA Gymnastics with its malevolently manipulating team physician Dr. Larry Nassar sexually abusing 265 confirmed female athletes (and one known male gymnast[ccx]) during a disgraceful quarter century stretch prior to his arrest in December 2016.[ccxi] Nassar also treated and abused hundreds of athletes as a sports medicine doctor at Michigan State University. Both US Gymnastics and Michigan State University as institutions including the US Olympic Committee that governs the USA Gymnastics NGB are all more than guilty of criminal misconduct and criminal cover-up, knowing for years that child athletes were being irreparably harmed. Had it not been for the Indianapolis Star newspaper (Indy Star) breaking this horrendous sports scandal on September 12, 2016,[ccxii] along with two brave former gymnasts that contacted the paper - Rachael Denhollander and Jamie Dantzscher, who knows if the biggest child sexual assault case in the history of sports would even be known today if left to the pedo-enabling devices of the Olympics organization or MSU?
A medical doctor entrusted to care for young athletes instead violated their trust for decades fondling and fingering female breasts, vaginas and anuses of thousands of victims while his employers as equally entrusted institutions looked the other way in double betrayal of underage girls and their families. The now 54 year old former doctor turned life sentenced Tucson Penitentiary inmate[ccxiii] took full advantage of his own world renowned reputation where families sought him out feeling honored and special just to have a medical expert with such impeccable credentials treating their child... or so they thought.
In 1986 while still a medical student at MSU, Larry Nassar was hired by USA Gymnastics as an athletic trainer. Just two years later as a volunteer Nassar began his longtime collaboration working with youth gymnastics coach John Geddert who would eventually rise to become the 2012 US Olympic Gymnastics team coach.[ccxiv] Geddert is now under investigation for his part in the criminal cover-up. But more on that deeply pathological pedo-enabler shortly.
Under the pretense of doing medical research as an MSU med student, in 1992 Nassar sexually molested a 12-year old girl in both a gymnastics facility as well as Nassar’s apartment.[ccxv] So it’s on public record that the Olympic employee pedophile continued committing sex crimes at a minimum for nearly a quarter century. Yet US Gymnastics and MSU both claim they never knew of their employee’s serial crimes until 2015 - one humongously sick lie. With his first known incident of sexual assault violating a prepubescent girl not even out the starting gate as a medical doctor, it wasn’t until 1993 that Larry Nassar received his osteopathic medicine degree as a doctor from MSU.[ccxvi] A year later in 1994, Dr. Nassar notched his first future Olympic medalist under his pedo-belt in 12-year old Jamie Dantzscher’s first among many molestations over the next half dozen years, all because she was referred to him for lower back pain treatment.[ccxvii]
In 1996 just prior to the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Larry Nassar received a promotion as the national medical coordinator for the USA Gymnastics team. Meanwhile, his rising star collaborator and his wife John and Kathryn Geddert opened their Twistars USA Gymnastics Club.[ccxviii] Both the Gedderts and their Twistar Club will also later be charged in civil suits for failing to protect child victims.
1997 was a big year for professional milestones as Nassar’s two longtime institutional partners-in-crime elevated him to US Olympics Gymnastics team physician as well as Michigan State University assistant professorship. 1997 was also the year that future Olympic coach John Geddert learned from a parent about his friend and partner’s questionable medical treatments that included inappropriate sexual touching.[ccxix] This critical information came to light per a 2017 lawsuit contending that Geddert not only refused to investigate the incident but continued recommending Nassar to other athletes. Keep in mind that a full 15 years before Geddert was the US Olympic team head coach, he knew the doctor was abusing his own underage gymnasts.
Coach Geddert and Dr. Nassar were inseparable, both professionally and socially. It was the future Michigan State University women’s gymnastics coach Kathie Klages who first introduced John Geddert to Larry Nassar while all three worked at Great Lakes Gymnastics club together.[ccxx] John Geddert was in Nassar’s wedding party in 1996.[ccxxi] Yep, as is typical, the pedophile married a grown woman who has somehow managed to keep herself out of the headlines.
The Twistar gym owner Geddert’s coaching style operates by fear and intimidation, known for yelling, throwing things in disgust and rage, and bringing his young gymnasts to tears, or withholding water until they perform to his liking.[ccxxii] Cut from the same abusive cloth as the Bela and Martha Karlokyi old school of hard knocks and insults, creating the ideal dynamic for the softie groomer Larry to flourish in contrast as the girls’ seemingly safe, nerdy but nurturing healer-medicine man, offering much needed refuge from the stoic hell on earth imposed by their whip-cracking taskmasters. The smooth pedo-operator was always supportive and consoling, thus easily able to convince so many of his even shy child victims that his “touchy-feely” approach to his medical treatments was standard state-of-the-art medicine from a highly reputable doctor who they automatically assumed “always knows best.” The surrounding punitive, authoritarian, cultural milieu in gymnastics confused young girls too afraid of the consequences should they ever dare to speak up.
Together both Geddert and Nassar ascended the same fast track pathway to success in Olympic US Gymnastics, almost as if their dual destiny was guided by fated external forces (i.e., the pedo-cabal players promoting them). While Nassar spent the next couple decades riding the crest of US Olympic success and soaring popularity of the sport, Coach Geddert became the most decorated gymnastics coach in Michigan history, coaching over 50 national team members including one of 2012’s “Fierce Five” Olympians Jordyn Wieber.[ccxxiii] Despite being selected as the US gymnastics team head coach for the triumphantly successful 2012 London Games, the turbulent months leading up and right after that Olympics threatened to end Geddert’s so called storied career.
He twice had known physically violent run-ins with females, one a young coach that worked in his gym that he accosted in the Twistar parking lot and another an 11-year old gymnast who claims he “stepped on her toe, grabbed her arm and pushed her into the wall.”[ccxxiv] The “she said-he said” legal faceoff on both cases finagled him from facing any criminal charges. Turns out at least four police reports have been filed on Geddert for assault since 1986.[ccxxv] His long record of rage and violence reflects deep-rooted issues of anger and a controlling, volatile nature that instantly turns abusive, regularly lashing out verbally, emotionally and physically toward vulnerable females, creating the safe haven for his doctor buddy to sexually deliver the final kind of abuse with impunity in a one-two wallop of a crippling poison punch.
A prepubescent Nassar victim who trained as a gymnast at Great Lakes gym commented:
Part of what enabled this is John broke little girls’ spirits and bodies, and Larry was there to fix them.[ccxxvi]
One of Nassar’s victims treated for back pain in the small training room at Geddert’s Twistar gym stated in the court record:
All I remember is him [Nassar] doing the treatment on me with his fingers in my vagina, massaging my back with a towel over my butt, and John walking in and making a joke that I guess my back really did hurt.[ccxxvii]
Even with the towel obstructing the pervert’s digital penetration, making light of the situation strongly infers knowledge on the coach’s part that he knew exactly where his doctor friend’s probing fingers were sexually abusing little girls, especially since a parent in 1997 had already complained to him about Nassar. Coach Geddert was known to walk in unannounced in both Nassar’s little training room as well as the girl’s locker room while they were changing.[ccxxviii] He made joking comments that if gymnastics didn’t work out, there was always a job waiting for them at a local strip club since they could climb a pole so well. He also remarked about their developing bodies, referencing their wearing pink and black leotards that resembled Victoria’s Secret models. His sexually harassing commentary in and of itself was a warning sign that children weren’t safe.
Girls coached by John Geddert have attempted suicide, been forced to routinely train while injured, risking permanent damage and even paralysis.[ccxxix] His sadistically brutal methods, demands and constant temper tantrums, berating his gymnasts to extreme abuse, though not so flagrantly unlawful as Nassar’s, but also severely damaging. Yet he too rose to the pinnacle of success as the bigtime gold medal winning Olympic coach. But it wasn’t until Nassar’s victim impact statements delivered at his sentencing hearings by Nassar’s and the coach’s victims in January 2018 that John Geddert’s name came up loud and clear that he too was a chronic criminal abuser whose karma had finally caught up to him.
One victim Lindsey Lemke proclaimed to the world during her impact statement that Geddert deserved to be behind bars with Nassar. Another victim Makayla Thrush said Geddert many times told her at age 10 that she should kill herself. After his physical and emotional abuse pushed her while not fully recovered resulting in her career ending injury did she eventually try killing herself.[ccxxx] Izzy Hutchins felt excruciating pain in her lower right leg. The coach didn’t want to hear it, figuring she was just faking to get out of her workout. When Izzy turned to Geddert’s wife saying she couldn’t walk, he yelled for her to get out of his gym. He followed her into the locker room, his face inches from hers screaming that she was “a fucking spoiled brat.” After wiping his spit from her face, a hospital scan later that day showed she’d been suffering for over a month from a broken fibula.
During an exercise another 12-year old girl Baily Lorencen fell 8 feet onto her head, but the coach insisted it was just a muscular injury, failing to mention it to her father when he came to pick her up that night. Unable to get up from the couch several hours later, she was rushed to the hospital with a C2 neck fracture.[ccxxxi] Two years after that while in back pain she fell on her face doing a tumbling pass, angering Geddert who ordered her to do wind sprints. Later at the hospital she prayed her back was broken just to prove to her sick coach that her injury was real. Her prayer was answered, and even after a year wearing a back brace her L5 vertebrae still remained fractured.
Another gymnast Brittany Aragon said training under Coach Geddert meant you were constantly insulted and humiliated. If her performance wasn’t perfect, he’d yell one of his favorite threats - he was going to “beat her like a red-headed stepchild.” At 5’3” and 113 pounds, by his standards, she was too heavy. So he’d have her climbing a rope to the ceiling using only her arms, running lap after lap, and hang from a bar lifting her toes to her fingers. In 2012 she overdosed in a suicide attempt on valium leftover from an old injury.[ccxxxii] While in the hospital, it was Larry Nassar who interceded, writing her saying she would have to formally apologize to her abusive coach in order to get back into the club.
US Gymnastics received a number of complaints about Geddert’s tirades and overly punitive coaching style, prompting the organization to hire a private investigator in 2014 to look into his record of abuse.[ccxxxiii] However, not surprisingly USAG gave him a free pass to continue his terror. Geddert is currently under investigation for child abuse and also facing lawsuits. So closely tied to Nassar and also clearly criminally abusive, once the above Nassar-Geddert victims publicly disclosed the coach’s abuse at Nassar’s sentencing hearing, finally in January 2018 US Gymnastics was compelled once again by outside pressure to suspend him. Immediately afterwards Geddert announced his retirement and his wife took over running his Twistar gym. The coach’s story is a painful, shameful bookend to the Nassar tragedy. The lesson - if US Gymnastics coaches and personnel aren’t sexually abusing their underage gymnasts, too many are busily abusing them physically, verbally, emotionally and mentally. Cruel sadism masquerading behind old school discipline is also pathologically embedded in the wider world of sports’ culture of abuse and silence.
Aside from becoming an MSU professor and USA Gymnastics team physician, 1997 should have also been a red flag for more of Nassar’s earlier sex crimes, supported by his two lifelong loyal coaching accomplices who always had his back. A 16-year old high school student injured at an MSU youth gymnastics event claimed after her medical appointment that she was sexually assaulted, and after informing her high school coach, he instructed her to report it to the MSU Coach Kathie Klages.[ccxxxiv] The molested underage gymnast in 1997 was warned by Klages of “serious consequences” should she insist on reporting it further.[ccxxxv] So now near two full decades before his arrest, both the Olympics and MSU gymnastic coaches were fully aware and criminally complicit, knowing they had a serious child sexual predator in their midst (similar to Joe Paterno). But Klages and Geddert both chose to continue raving about their medical saint performing miracles on their innocent little girl athletes that they systematically fed straight into the defilers’ evil ungloved clutches.
Like Geddert, Klages has much to hide. Again in that same eventful year of 1997, after asking another gymnast who’d seen Nassar at his office if the doctor had performed procedures that included digital vaginal and anal penetration, when the underage girl said yes, per court documents “Klages told (her) that there is no reason to bring up Nassar’s conduct.”[ccxxxvi] She also is on record speaking to the mother of another abuse victim and trying to convince her that Nassar’s vaginal technique was a proven sound medical treatment. And finally, as recently as December 2017, still standing by her pedo-man, the by then deposed MSU pedo-enabling coach told the mother of a current MSU gymnast that the child pornography found on Nassar’s computer was actually planted by the FBI. These incredibly incriminating facts alone portend a much larger pedophilia enabling operation than the familiar “lone gunman” wacko theory. Though karma has yet to fully bite Coach Geddert or Coach Klages in the ass, after 27 years as the MSU gymnastics coach, Kathie Klages’ mouth finally caught up to her as well, costing her job in February 2017.[ccxxxvii]
A year later in 1998 Nassar began abusing the 5-year old daughter of his supposed family friends, first exposing his penis but the next year came the molestations that would haunt her to this day.[ccxxxviii] Years later when 13-year old Kyle Stephens finally informed her parents, Nassar convinced them to dismiss her version of events, creating extreme conflict and tragic strain on the entire victimized family.
The following year 1999 when an MSU athlete with a hamstring injury was sexually assaulted, she was rebuked, condescendingly reminded by her cross country coach that Nassar was “an Olympic doctor” who “knew what he was doing.”[ccxxxix] In 2000 after a sexually abused MSU softball player informed three college athletic trainers and another MSU staff about what she felt was abuse, she heard the same old worn out song:
She was fortunate to receive the best medical care possible from a world-renowned doctor.[ccxl]
Also in that same year 2000 in Sydney the pedophile would travel for a second of five consecutive Summer Games with the US Gymnastics team abusing his share of underage Olympian athletes along the way, but not before first sexually assaulting 15-year old US Gymnastics team member Rachael Denhollander.[ccxli] Several weeks after the hometown newspaper of the US Gymnastics headquarters, the Indianapolis Star (Indy Star), issued a scathing indictment of the NGB’s notorious history for its widespread sexual abuse in August 2016,[ccxlii] it was Rachael Denhollander who bravely went to the MSU police to file her criminal complaint against Nassar regarding the 2000 incident that ultimately brought his pedo-operation finally to a halt. A day later on August 30, 2016, for the final time, MSU suspended the predator from all doctoring duties pending the outcome of the latest police investigation. The following month in September 2016, Michigan State University terminated him as an associate professor of Osteopathic Medicine. Rachael’s action against her abuser is credited with ceasing his near quarter century sex crimes. Rachael astutely understood the toxic dynamic:
You don't get someone like Larry Nassar, you don't get a pedophile who is able to abuse without there being a culture surrounding him in that place.[ccxliii]
Though relieved to have put the abuser away for life, she remains unsettled that the larger institutional pedo-enablers around him have yet to be brought to justice:
I am greatly disappointed that we have finished the criminal proceedings without seeing any responsibility taken by the institutions that let this happen.[ccxliv]
As far back as 2004, Nassar was discovered soliciting and receiving child pornography - yet another crime of which the sicko would later be convicted.[ccxlv] That same year 2004, when a 17-year old scoliosis victim walked into Nassar’s office for treatment and after the predator inserted his ungloved fingers into her vagina and massaged her breasts for a few minutes, she too walked out a PTSD sex assault victim for life.[ccxlvi] After the mother and daughter reported the abuse to the local Meridian Township Police, the first of several law enforcement investigations, Nassar used a power point presentation to con his slick ass out of legal troubles, explaining how it was a valid medical treatment and no charges were made, freeing him up for the next dozen years to resume abusing hundreds if not thousands more underage girls.
In June 2011 and again in January 2014 the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) received federal Title IX complaints from two of Nassar’s MSU student victims asserting that the university failed to respond properly to their sexual assault allegations.[ccxlvii] OCR found MSU guilty of violating federal guidelines for failing to respond within specified time limits. The refusal by MSU personnel to take appropriate immediate action upon learning of sexual complaints and confusion over protocol regarding who is mandated to file sexual assault reports to various law enforcement agencies among academic departments also resulted in serious noncompliance issues with Title IX policy guidelines, thus the OCR declared the MSU campus a hostile environment for sexual violence against females. After its lengthy investigation, on September 1, 2015 the US Department of Education charged MSU with failing to respond to multiple sexual abuse complaints in both a prompt and equitable manner, causing and contributing to the ongoing “sexually hostile environment.”[ccxlviii] Yet a federal agency declaring that thousands of MSU co-eds were sexually in danger amidst a hostile, unsafe campus had absolutely zero impact on both the serial predator’s ongoing crime spree or the university responsible for protecting its student body.
2011 was also the year that the US Olympic Gymnastics head coach John Geddert heard directly out of the mouth of then 15-year old Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney telling him and others riding in the car back to their hotel that:
Last night, Larry was fingering me.[ccxlix]
By that time two decades into his nonstop serial sex crime rampage, fingering little girls’ vaginas had long been the doctor’s favorite criminal pastime. Though upon hearing this startling admission, McKayla said “people gasped” in the car, nothing further was made of her Olympic-shaking bombshell, least of all by the pedo-enabling guilty coach Geddert. Also sitting in that car was another sexually abused future gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman, who during an April 2018 NBC Dateline interview backed up her fellow teammate’s shocking claim, saying Coach Geddert “just said nothing.”[ccl]
That’s because for the previous 14 years before that incident, Geddert had said nothing, knowing all the while his pervert friend was abusing the very same athletes that he was coaching. That’s how much he cared about his athletes. Yet he did nothing to stop the beast. Keep in mind that McKayla dropped this truth bomb over a half decade ahead of the serial pedophile’s arrest, prior to hundreds more victims that would have been spared from lifelong harm had Geddert or someone in that car with half a conscience done the only humane, righteous thing. Their collective silence constitutes criminal abuse in and of itself and John Geddert and the rest of his pedo-enablers up and down the Olympic predatory pedo-food chain need to pay for their reprehensible crimes against children. The Olympic culture of pedophilic abuse, complicit silence and criminal cover-up once again won out over any momentary shock or pangs of guilt - if any - that anyone sitting in that car experienced for their subsequent criminal non-action.
McKayla Maroney’s first sexual assault occurred two years earlier in 2009 when she first competed for a spot on the US national team, training at the legendary coaching couple Martha and Bela Karolyi’s Texas ranch outside Houston. As the national team’s physician, the predatory doctor instructed McKayla while slipping his fingers inside the 13-year old’s vagina for the first time that it was a legitimate and necessary medical procedure.[ccli] Afterwards the gymnastics MD further brainwashed the future Olympian at the Karolyi Ranch with this king-sized rationalization. Per McKayla’s account:
He said that nobody would understand this and the sacrifice that it takes to get to the Olympics. So you can't tell people about this. I actually was like, ‘That makes sense. I don't want to tell anybody about this.’ I didn't believe that they would understand.[cclii]
Like virtually all Nassar’s abuse victims, McKayla stayed silently frozen in fear of how to move forward from this heavy burden of sexual trauma dumped on her at the tender age of 13.
In the NBC Dateline interview, McKayla Maroney described training at the Karolyi Camp as highly abusive, with her fellow gymnasts referring to it as “Torture Camp.”[ccliii] For decades the Karolyis ran a very intimidating training program whereby if anyone dare object or criticize over the way they were treated, they were immediately banished off the team. Parents and visitors were never allowed. Withstanding daily verbally and emotionally abusive attacks was simply a built-in part of the couple’s old school regimen imported from Iron Curtain Romania where they turned Nadia Comaneci into history’s first 10 scoring gymnastic celebrity whiz kid legend. Name calling was commonplace, taking the form of being called “fat” when deemed overweight by the coaches’ stringent standards. In this highly touted, legally sanctioned concentration camp, Dr. Nassar would play the role of “good cop” as a grooming counterpoint to the Karolyis’ harsh, disciplinary “bad cop” style, again reflecting familiar shades of the Sandusky-Paterno dynamic. To get on the girls’ good graces, Nassar would frequently sneak in gifts like food and snacks to the hungry athletes kept “starving” on their strict low calorie diet. But his compassionate, seemingly nice guy persona was part of the predator’s grooming process.[ccliv] McKayla stated:
They [the Karolyis and their staff] used to say ‘what happens at camp, stays at camp.’ And, I mean that right there’s a great big red flag.[cclv]
What Sandusky was to legendary coach Joe Paterno in his fall from grace, Nassar is to the Karolyis, forever staining their once renowned legacy and impeccable reputation. They too were interviewed by Dateline with the chance to defend themselves before their now legions of critics casting dispersions on them. The longtime gymnastics legends are currently being sued by at least two of their former gymnasts.[cclvi] One is Jamie Dantzscher. Years ago the bronze medalist at the 2000 Sydney Games was the first to publicly criticize the Karolyis’ cult-like abusive power and caught enormous flak for it, but now completely vindicated.[cclvii]
Another 2005-2010 USA Gymnastics team member abused by Nassar, Mattie Larson, in her lawsuit also accuses the Karolyis for turning “a blind eye to the perpetrator Nassar’s sexual abuse of children at the Ranch.”[cclviii] With Mattie’s attorney John Manly referring to the Karolyi Ranch as a “house of horrors,” when the gymnast was 15 dreading to have to leave on a flight the next morning to the official US national team training site, Mattie intentionally bumped her head on the wall to feign an accidental injury just to avoid the abuse awaiting her in Texas by her abusive team doctor and her abusive team coaches.[cclix] These Olympians believe the Karolyis are less than honest in their denial that they had no clue that a sexual predator was lurking in their midst, given free rein and access to the girls’ bedrooms at all hours of the day or night.
In the same way that the controlling Coach Paterno is said to have known virtually everything that went on with his team and inside the Penn State locker room, allowing his pedo-assistant coach free lifetime access to football athletic facilities (including after retirement) where most of his sex crimes were committed, the same could be said for the over-controlling US Gymnastics taskmasters at their “torture camp” with regards to their version of “good cop” pedophile-employee as well. The parallels between these two horrific scandals are eerily striking. Perhaps that’s because they’re both manifestations of the same global pedophilia network run by the same international crime cabal.
The worst single episode amongst McKayla Maroney’s chronic years of sexual abuse also arrived in 2011, just prior to her disclosing that bombshell to her coach in the car. In fact her telling Geddeck about Nassar had everything to do with the US Gymnastics team’s trip to Tokyo for the world championship.[cclx] To sleep on the plane, Dr. Nassar gave the 15-year old McKayla a sleeping pill. The next thing she remembers was waking up in the pedophile’s bed in a Tokyo hotel room “getting a ‘treatment.’” It was that incident that McKayla for the first time realized she was not receiving the doctor’s medical treatments at all but was being sexually abused by a highly manipulative, malicious and deceitfully perverted criminal. In her NBC interview she explained:
I thought I was going to die. He went, like, overboard that night. I was bawling, naked, on a bed. Him on top of me. And I thought I was gonna die.[cclxi]
The discipline of a highly trained Olympic athlete is schooled in pushing all pain aside, be it physical, emotional and/or sexual, in deference to competition and performance. Despite being brutally fingered and savagely violated just hours earlier, remarkably McKayla came through in top form in Tokyo and was crowned the world gymnastics vault champion.[cclxii] Traces of CIA Monarch mind control torture, inflicted child sexual abuse and forced mind dissociation can be found in the experience of these abused elite child athletes. Amazingly, they are able to compartmentalize and thus temporarily store away their psychic pain to the extent that it fails to interfere with their masterful athletic performance.
In the April Dateline broadcast, McKayla Maroney declared that the gymnastics team doctor stunningly molested her “hundreds of times”[cclxiii] while over the years also taking hundreds of photos of her to add to his gargantuan child pornography library.[cclxiv] In an FBI September 2016 raid on his home, over 37,000 pornographic images were discovered on Nassar’s hard drive depicting children as young as six being raped, molested and digitally penetrated. McKayla believes that Nassar has shared with fellow pedophiles on the internet photos taken of her while the doctor was sexually abusing her.
While for two decades US gymnasts were forced to regularly submit to Dr. FeelBad’s mandatory “treatments” if they wished to remain on the team or compete in the next Olympics, their chronic serial abuser was revered amongst the world’s finest MDs as both an Olympic team doctor and MSU sports medicine expert. Well-insulated and protected for a quarter century by his powerful institutions, the sexual parasite never ran out of fresh young meat to exploit and ravage. Maroney stated every time she ever saw Nassar, he never once failed to sadistically violate her, ending up “hundreds of times” because the monster was granted 24 hour a day unlimited access to her and her teammates’ training camp bedrooms and hotel rooms.
And because Nassar’s serial pedophile operation was Olympically sanctioned and shielded by three powerful institutions - the USOC, USAG and MSU - for a span of two and a half decades prior to arrest, the fiendish doctor was allowed to continue harming victims into the thousands, mushrooming into the largest known pedophilia scandal in all of sports history. But it wasn’t just a one man operation by a long shot, at minimum it was a four major institutional operation (including the FBI’s criminal stonewalling of its year plus investigation) that continued indefinitely to regularly promote, feed and protect the medical monster. Like every single pedophilia scandal, only with help from high places was this central antagonist able to inflict so much damage and pain on so many lives for so many years. Typical mainstream media apologists such as the Washington Post carefully frame this scandal as simply “warning signs missed.” But that’s just another collusive spin to cover up the very real larger pedophilia network operation that involves the planetary pedophile elite.[cclxv]
Speaking of collusion from high places, the heavily edited NBC Dateline piece also conspicuously cut out an interview segment where two-time Olympic captain Aly Raisman called out one top Olympic executive - USA Gymnastics Senior Vice President Rhonda Faehn - for her part in the cover-up since Aly herself knows that Faehn was informed by her teammate Maggie Nichols and Maggie’s personal coach in June 2015 about the doctor’s widespread abuse.[cclxvi] Not to be denied, the next day outspoken Aly took to Twitter to announce NBC’s blatant interview omission, soon enough naming the culprit who like the rest of the accomplices did nothing once she was told, other than running to her pedo-enabling boss USAG chief executive Steve Penny. Critics of NBC maintain the censorship took place in order to protect the network’s own corporate self-interest as the official exclusive Olympic television sponsor over the years perennially enjoying some of its highest ratings covering US women’s gymnastics events. After all in the Luciferian world, you don’t offend or bite the hand that feeds you.
This carefully “edited oversight” is yet another example of just how corrupt major cabal players from the corporate media and corporate sports world nefariously are, constantly colluding as symbiotic partners-in-crime. This kind of subtle deception relegates NBC to the status of mere kiddie porn peddler, exploitatively squeezing every last drop of its news media responsibility into flashy, splashy, high rating soundbite headlines… which again reveal the fact that it’s never a one man operation but always a much larger, deceptively hidden, globalized pedophilia network.
Last October 2017, the #metoo movement inspired McKayla Maroney to bravely emerge from the shadows to announce that she too suffered from Nassar’s abuse from age 13 to near her 2016 retirement at age 20.[cclxvii] A mere year after the Tokyo trauma, at the 2012 Olympics in London, during the emotionally charged, most critical time of her young life at age 16, performing and earning silver and gold medals on the world stage for her nation, her team doctor was administering his latest dose of chronic abuse on the Olympian known for wearing the scowl at her medal ceremony. Less than a year earlier she had boldly told her Olympic coach and other officials what Nassar had been doing, but her desperate cry for help fell on deaf ears. In retrospect, with all that she must have been experiencing at the time, it’s perfectly understandable why she would exhibit her iconic look of facial disgust. Incredibly, four of the “Fierce Five” gold medal winners at the London Olympics admit they were all sexually abused minors victimized by their team physician.[cclxviii]
As psychologically bruised and battered sexual abuse victims are, primed and polished athletes, even child athletes, have it in them the power to transcend their abuse to reach their young lifelong goal, and neither McKayla nor Aly nor Gabby Douglas nor Jordyn Wieber were about to let a slithering sicko criminal playing charlatan doctor in an equally sicko criminal Olympic organization stop them. It’s nothing less than a testimonial to the strength of the human spirit to triumph over evil.
In January 2018 the latest victim-turned-survivor winner to out the predatory Nassar and his predatory Olympic system is the gold medal star of the 2016 Rio Olympics Simone Biles.[cclxix] A corrupt and evil system that so flagrantly misuses and abuses children as sacrificial lambs in its insatiable lust for medals and money is ill prepared for the truth-exposing strength and courage belonging to this latest class of gold medal winners demanding accountability from the rest of the pedophile enabling accomplices still entrenched in power.
At the height of the #metoo movement in late 2017, 21-year old McKayla Maroney wisely wrote on her Twitter account:
People should know that this is not just happening in Hollywood. This is happening everywhere. Wherever there is a position of power, there seems to be potential for abuse. I had a dream to go to the Olympics and the things that I had to endure to get there, were unnecessary, and disgusting.[cclxx]
What’s also disgusting are the hypocritical responses from the very organizations that for years protected the serial pedophiles permitting them to do such widespread damage against McKayla and so many others. After US Gymnastics said that it admired McKayla Maroney’s courage, its disingenuous statement blabbered on:
We, like so many others, are outraged and disgusted by the conduct of which Larry Nassar is accused. We are sorry that any athlete has been harmed during her or his gymnastics career.[cclxxi]
If US Gymnastics was so “outraged,” then why in Hell didn’t anyone from USAG step in and stop the many years of sexual abuse? Oh yeah, I just said it, because they are all in Hell as Luciferians. The fact is, US Gymnastics attempted to silence McKayla as one of its most famous, potentially vocal Olympians, forcing her back in 2016 as soon as she retired into signing a non-disclosure agreement in exchange for her financial settlement to pay for her much needed therapy and legal bills (both compliments of USAG’s criminality).[cclxxii] The NGB’s silencing campaign backfired because McKayla spoke out in October 2017 revealing her years of chronic abuse and then in December 2017 she again went on the offensive filing a lawsuit in California against USAG, USOC and MSU for engaging in a cover-up marathon and gross failure to protect her and others for decades after first learning Nassar was a sexual predator.
Additionally in California, it’s against the law for a confidentiality agreement to take place in a sexual abuse case. Her attorney at the time - feminist opportunist Gloria Allred - set up her illegal arrangement. The bottom line, as part of USA Gymnastics’ continued desperation to preserve its systematic cover-up and irreversibly tainted image, the Olympic governing body paid McKayla hush money to keep Nassar and their organization out of the headlines. That’s hardly looking out for child athletes or being sorry for all the harm it caused. McKayla’s attorney John Manly, representing her and scores of other victim athletes against USAG, USOC and MSU, explained her forced predicament accepting the 2016 payout:
I want people to understand that this kid had no choice. She couldn't function. She couldn't work. They [USA Gymnastics] were willing to sacrifice the health and well-being of one of the most famous gymnasts in the world because they didn't want the world to know they were protecting a pedophile doctor.[cclxxiii]
It took model Chrissy Teigen to offer paying McKayla’s $100,000 fine for breaking her agreement to stay muzzled[cclxxiv] before USA Gymnastics finally relented from its threat to legally go after her,[cclxxv] realizing the horrendous blowback from all the negative publicity that would result should USAG press the issue in court. Just to show its true colors, while US Gymnastics was expressing how sorry it is for its criminal role harming McKayla and so many other child athletes, at the exact same time it was introducing motions in Michigan’s US District Court to dismiss McKayla’s and 92 other victims’ lawsuits against USAG.[cclxxvi] The Olympic organization’s hypocritical hubris is beyond words.
Michigan State University was also named as an additional defendant in Maroney and others victims’ lawsuits because it too knew about the pedophile’s long history of serial offending while permitting Nassar to continue seeing (and harming) patients even while the perp was being investigated for 19 months by MSU police in 2014-15.[cclxxvii] The university knowingly allowed at least another dozen more known victims to be molested while his previous sexual misconduct was being investigated by its own policing agency. This highly incriminating evidence surfaced during a joint MSU-FBI inquiry in the spring of 2017. The university uses as its feeble excuse that inquiry after inquiry failed to produce enough evidence for the Ingham County prosecutor’s office to charge Nassar, so each time he was permitted to return to work after an ever-so-brief suspension. That brings up another point in this criminal cover-up of gigantic dimensions from a broken legal system that only demonstrates it protects pedophiles. Again, more help from high places that once again only exposes yet another crack in the pedo-cabal wall… more evidence that pedo-foxes in the legal system guarding the pedo-cabal henhouse is a constant throughout every single pedophilia scandal in history.
Reacting to McKayla’s disclosure of abuse last October, another of the many pedo-foxes - the US Olympic Committee - chimed in with its phony concern, claiming it was “sickened” by Nassar’s abuse and “heartbroken” by McKayla’s account. USOC then proceeds to tell the boldface lie of the century:
Each doctor working with our athletes undergoes background checks including an evaluation of medical licensure actions. Unfortunately this predator was not identified by any organization during the time in question.[cclxxviii]
Background checks on US Gymnastics club employees weren’t even initiated until 2007, a full decade and a half after Nassar’s first accuser came forth to report his abuse.[cclxxix] Additionally, there’s so much blatant evidence of gross liability at both MSU and US Gymnastics on the charge of negligent retention during Nassar’s two decade plus employment while they both were aware that a growing record of complaints from dozens of victims and parents were accumulating.[cclxxx] Documentation of Nassar’s reported crimes can be found in multiple law enforcement agencies, the medical licensing board, child protective services,[cclxxxi] gymnastics clubs, the MSU athletic department, the university administration as well as within both Olympic organizations the USOC and USAG, all the way to the US Department of Education. Yet not one of these “official” entities designated to protect the well-being of minors did a damn thing to stop the nonstop sexual violence unleashed upon thousands of his needlessly wounded victims.
Aly Raisman was spot on with her no-bullshit assessment of Olympic organization leadership:
Their biggest priority from the beginning and still today is their reputation, the medals they win and the money they make off of us.[cclxxxii]
The governing body’s longstanding cover-up of the doctor’s abuse finally began taking a fatal hit on June 17, 2015. That’s when US Gymnastics could no longer ignore the incoming abuse complaints registered by Nassar’s parade of accusers. Former USA national team member and 2015 world champion gymnast Maggie Nichols and her personal coach Sarah Jantzi reported an incident after Nassar sexually assaulted Maggie while treating her for back pain training at the US Gymnastics Karolyi Ranch.[cclxxxiii] Coach Jantzi overheard 15-year old Maggie talking to her teammate Aly Raisman about the bizarre treatment at the hands of the team doctor.[cclxxxiv] On June 17, 2015 Sarah Jantzi took her concern directly to US Gymnastics senior vice president and women’s program director Rhonda Faehn who then immediately contacted USAG President Steve Penny. Coach Jantzi and Maggie’s mother Gina were then called in to meet with Penny, who assured the mother that US Gymnastics would take the matter to the police and that “her daughter’s concern” would be handled judiciously. According to the complaint, Gina felt:
Steve Penny discouraged [Gina and her husband John Nichols] from reporting Nassar’s conduct to law enforcement and pressured them to keep the matter quiet.[cclxxxv]
Penny was giving them the classic runaround, lying to them at every turn that his organization was contacting law enforcement. But instead of reporting the allegations to police authorities which is mandated by law in both Texas where the abuse occurred as well as Indiana where the liar was lying, the NGB hired its own private investigator still hoping it could smell things out and “fudge” over the evidence.[cclxxxvi] Finally when the investigator interviewed a third gymnast on Friday July 24, 2015, she recommended USAG contact the police.[cclxxxvii] Always so courteous to not want to bother the FBI over the weekend, the NGB waited till the next business day on Monday July 27th before finally speaking to an FBI agent. Of course the FBI was criminal in its handling of the case as well, waiting nearly a full year before interviewing Maggie Nichols and other victims, allowing Nassar from July 2015 to December 2016 to molest at least another 40 girls and one boy prior to the pedophile’s arrest.[cclxxxviii] Not only is the FBI guilty of criminal negligence, but stonewalling for so much time smacks of yet another sign of major cover-up and coordinated collusion between the federal government and Olympic organizations and MSU to ensure that the larger pedophilia operation had time to tie up loose ends and seal off any traceable bread crumbs. The goal is to always set it up where only one designated sicko goes down so that the larger sicko network remains spared and unscathed.
So the Olympics gymnastics NGB waited a full five weeks before it finally notified law enforcement. US Gymnastics would then be caught willfully lying, claiming it informed the FBI immediately. This disgraceful organization also failed to notify MSU and the Twistar gym where the Frankenstein monster continued seeing and molesting more underage patients. Perhaps USAG working with its fellow partners-in-crime already knew they knew, so why bother. Over a year later MSU finally fired the pedophile in September 2016.[cclxxxix] USAG defended itself contending that it was not legally obligated to inform his other employers. Tell that to the last abuse victims Nassar was still molesting at MSU in 2016. Attorney John Manly on this issue:
Who allows that? Who allows a physician to be put back in a clinic treating children while under investigation for sexually abusing children?[ccxc]
A larger, coordinated child sexual abuse network, that’s who. In desperado damage control mode, the deceitful audacity of USA Gymnastics seems egregiously boundless, releasing its “conclusive” finding after receiving its hired PI’s report:
The information that Maggie and later a second athlete provided was important, but did not provide reasonable suspicion that sexual abuse had occurred (Emphasis MINE).[ccxci]
So even after the complaints in 2015, Penny and his USOG were still blatantly denying Nassar was sexually abusing athletes. Between the unfolding developments further implicating both the pedophile’s guilt and the NGB’s criminal cover-up guilt along with more damning articles posted by those pesky Indy Star reporters revealing the rampant damage over many years throughout the sport perpetrated against its underage athletes by an army of US Gymnastics personnel (as well as non-USAG personnel), the pedophilia scandal could no longer be suppressed. By the time Indy Star announced in September 2016 that both former club gymnast Rachael Denhollander and former Olympian Jamie Dantzscher decided to go public, disclosing that each had filed separate lawsuits against both Nassar and USA Gymnastics, the burgeoning scandal was simply too big to continue sweeping under the rug.[ccxcii]
After years Jamie Dantzscher’s abuse had her suffering from depression, anxiety and self-medicating her pain, in July 2016 for the first time, the 2000 Olympic bronze medal winner finally disclosed her deep dark secret that was behind her painful life. Likewise, ever since her sexual trauma in 2000, Rachael Denhollander felt like damaged goods, like it was all her fault. But ultimately after reading one of the Indy Star exposés, she felt strong enough to courageously step forward to tell her harrowing story.
Amidst concurrent investigations by the FBI, MSU police, Department of Education and the Michigan state attorney general’s office, still protecting its own reputation as well as its predator, in September 2015 USA Gymnastics facilitated Nassar’s quiet retirement as its team physician. In August 2016 Nassar publicly revealed on Facebook that he wasn’t at the Rio Summer Games because he retired from US Gymnastics, using the excuse he was running for a seat on his local school board - that is until a month later word got out via Indy Star again of his MSU termination in view of ongoing multiple criminal investigations. Meanwhile, his long run of managing to avoid jail finally came to an end when arrested in December 2016 on charges of child pornography and sexual criminal conduct against a child less than 13 years old.[ccxciii] Six months after Indy Star outed the pedo-monster, his diehard protector who so vehemently had defended him, USAG boss Steve Penny was forced to resign in March 2017, but not before receiving a generous million dollar severance package for all his diehard efforts to criminally uphold the shameful reputation of his Olympic organization.[ccxciv] In May 2018 Michigan State University reached a settlement sum of $500 million of which $425 will go to the current 337 claimants of Nassar sexual abuse and the remaining $25 million will be disbursed to any potential future victims.[ccxcv]
In the end, when tip of the iceberg child raping scandals ultimately do get exposed, the longstanding pattern is for the same scripted mega-media giants to all quickly place blame exclusively on one sole predatory monster (vis-à-vis Nassar and Sandusky), again to ensure that, by wag-the-dog design, protection of the larger globalized pedophilia crime network remains fully intact, still unknown to the public and immune from all further exposure and accountability. By diabolical design, this systemic one-two policy of non-action and cover-up in turn ensures that the global network of child sexual abuse only continues to grow each year in order to destroy millions more children’s lives on an unprecedented, massive, industrialized scale. As interlocking elements, mass media and the sports industry routinely work covertly together in tandem to suppress the deeper, darker truth from ever reaching the light of day, thereby avoiding the risk that their entire evil cabal operation gets exposed wide open - which unabashedly is the explicit aim of this A-Z pedophilia sourcebook. All the glaringly gory details of evidence are there for all to see.
Be it every type of scandal or so called terrorist false flag operation, the official MSM narrative is always deceitfully and formulaically rolled out by the crime cabal to shield the shady truth of its own criminal guilt from the public. But what’s making the crime cabal increasingly nervous these days is knowing that on an unprecedented scale, citizens of the world are finally detecting the 24/7 lame-stream news propaganda machine for what it is - the world’s largest source of “fake news.” The waking masses are coming to realize that for a very long time the planetary controllers, through deployment of divide and conquer tactics deceptively spread through mass media, they manufacture and perpetrate conflict after conflict throughout history, manipulatively and willfully pitting one group against another, bringing war, death and destruction to every corner of our globe. These murderous culprits as members of this same ruling pedophilia cabal are now exposed and frantically running like cockroaches for cover of darkness as we the people shining the searchlight of truth on them are fast approaching critical mass. We will no longer sit idly by in passive ignorance tolerating the wholesale slaughter of our innocents nor destruction of our planet. Now armed with the truth, we’re fighting back and they’re running scared.
Joined by hundreds of other victim turned survivors, two celebrated insiders are also fighting back - the courageous 22-year old McKayla Maroney and equally courageous 23-year old Aly Raisman, each filing civil suits not just against their molester but also are separately suing the US Olympic Committee, the USA Gymnastics NGB and MSU, for all of them knowing untold numbers of young girls were being systematically victimized for years at a time, yet they chose to do nothing to help or stop the abuse. In Aly’s words:
After all this time, they remain unwilling to conduct a full investigation, and without a solid understanding of how this happened, it is delusional to think sufficient changes can be implemented. Meanwhile, thousands of young athletes continue to train and compete every day in this same broken system. I refuse to wait any longer for these organizations to do the right thing. It is my hope that the legal process will hold them accountable and enable the change that is so desperately needed.[ccxcvi]
Unfortunately in far too many cases, the legal system has been shown to be just as broken. But we are turning the tide. Out of a total of 265 girls and young women victims with 160 having already sued Larry Nassar, 156 of them showed up in person for his sentencing hearings, dramatically confronting their abuser eye-to-eye.[ccxcvii] It’s important to realize that the thousands of Nassar abuse victims each have family members who are also victimized, forced to witness the suffering of their loved ones. One was a mother who lost her daughter to suicide, believing her doctor’s abuse led directly to her spiraling death. From Donna Markham’s testimony:
We got in the car (after a session with Nassar) and she started bawling and I said, ‘Chelsea tell me what's wrong,’ and she said ‘Mom, he put his fingers in me, and they weren't gloved.’ I said, ‘Chelsea I was right there in the room,’ and she goes, ‘You couldn't see what was going on, mom.’ And she said, ‘He hurt me.’ She quit gymnastics the following year, when she was 13, because she went to a meet here in Lansing... and he (Nassar) was there. And she fell off of every apparatus. She did horrible, and she said ‘I can’t do this anymore because every time I see him I just flashback to what happened in his office.’ She made bad decisions. It affected her social life. She started running with bad crowds, she got into drugs, and she never really recovered the person that was my best friend. For my daughter it became a serious, serious bout of depression. So in 2009 she took her own life because she couldn't deal with the pain anymore. It will be 10 years in March that I lost my baby. She was 23 years old. And every day I miss her. Every day. And it all started with him.[ccxcviii]
Though every victim’s story is unique, sad, gut-wrenching and tragic, confronting the monster face-to-face in January 2018 was empowering for survivors struggling to overcome their years of pain that this wretched little man in an orange jumpsuit cowering before them inflicted. But confronting their sexual predator to verbalize the profound impact that his abuse had on each of their lives was therapeutic for transitioning from victimhood to empowered survivor.
Recall Kyle Stephens, the little girl forced to endure a half dozen years of ongoing abuse that the parents as family friends with Nassar had trouble believing her belated accusations. The family conflict took a tragic turn once the non-believing father ultimately accepted the fact that his daughter never lied to him about Nassar’s chronic abuse. He was so riddled and tortured with guilt that he ended up committing suicide.[ccxcix] In the words of his daughter and only non-medical abuse victim:
Without my knowledge or consent I had engaged in my first sexual experience by kindergarten and had joined an overwhelming statistic of sexual abuse victims. You used my body for six years for your own sexual gratification. That is unforgivable. I've told counselors your name in hopes that they would report you. I have reported you to child protective services twice. I gave a testament to get your medical license revoked. You were first arrested on my charges, and now, as the only non-medical victim to come forward, I testify to let the world know that you are a repulsive liar and that those treatments were pathetically veiled sexual abuse. Perhaps you have figured it out by now, but little girls don't stay little forever. They grow into strong women who return to destroy your world. Your Honor, there is no time that Larry Nassar can serve that will give me back those years with my family.[ccc]
The fact is no less than 14 Michigan State University officials including the MSU president were informed of Larry Nassar’s chronic child sexual abuse during the preceding 20 years prior to his arrest.[ccci] After Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 first degree counts of criminal sexual conduct with victims as young as 6 in November 2017, a month later in December he was sentenced to his first 60 years in prison on multiple child pornography charges.[cccii]
On January 19, 2018, after a 5-hour meeting, the Michigan State University Board of Trustees gave their president Lou Anna Simon their thumbs up,[ccciii] backing her to remain president despite her and over a dozen other university accomplices all caught looking the other way to allow decades of abuse. Their misplaced solidarity of support for child abuse enabling proved short-lived. Less than a week later within hours of Nassar’s January 24, 2018 conviction on 7 counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, the first immediate fallout struck their fearless leader with her announced resignation in the face of mounting pressure from students and faculty.[ccciv]
Speaking of enablers, by the end of January 2018, looking to cover its own sorry ass, the pathetic US Olympic Committee demanded that all 21 members of its US Gymnastics board of directors resign (or be disowned as an Olympic NGB) for its “inaction” in the face of the Nassar cover-up.[cccv]
Meanwhile less than a week later on February 5, 2018, the presiding judge in the Nassar case wasn’t buying sicko’s claim of remorse after his forced-fed parade of intense impact statements personally delivered by 156 of his victims. Of course Nassar’s cause wasn’t helped by his 6-page handwritten letter to Judge Rosemarie Aquilina complaining about her forcing him to endure the three day “media show” facing his victims.[cccvi] The pedophile also showed his true colors once again defending his “medical procedures” as true science. So for good measure, realizing he is clueless in recognizing the colossal harm he’s done, the judge tacked on another 40-125 years onto his up to 175 year death sentence, punctuated by Judge Aquilina’s final comment that his next judge will be God.[cccvii]
In the Nassar aftermath, seems nothing can stop the bleeding as the following month of March saw the twisted pedo-plot only thicken with a second MSU honcho let go, only to also wind up behind bars. Turns out that Larry Nassar’s boss who oversaw the MSU sports medicine clinic where he worked so many years is also a flaming sex pervert. Dr. William Strampel was arrested in late March on charges of sexual harassment as well as collecting nude selfies of young women on his work computer.[cccviii] Per the criminal complaint, this 70-year old senior citizen was busily targeting his own female med students barely out of their teens to “harass, discriminate, demean, sexually proposition, and sexually assault,” violating his statutory duty as both a public officer and MSU’s “distinguished” dean of the college of Osteopathic Medicine.
Dr. Strampel came to law enforcement’s attention for his failing to monitor and enforce the stricter protocols imposed on the pedophile Nassar after multiple sex abuse complaints. But discovered on this latest MSU perv’s office computer was at least 50 selfie photos containing a graphic display of university co-eds in the nude, semi-nude, showing their genitalia, sex toys and pornography. The derelict used his powerful position at MSU to coerce targeted female medical students to send him their naked photos online. The now disgraced dirty old man is also accused of grabbing young tail on the dance floor of his school’s annual gala ball as well as at his scholarship dinner. Is this aging sex fiend just part of the larger MSU pedo-society similar to the one found in high academia circles at MSU’s Big 10 rival Penn State? Circumstantial, connecting-the-dots evidence down this pedo-cabal’s rabbit hole seems to indicate yes.
Both MSU and all the US Olympic organizations – USOC, US Gymnastics, US Swimming, US Taekwondo, US Skating, IUS Volleyball, all consistently and repeatedly drop the ball for decades at a time in their gross failure to safeguard thousands of underage athletes because their obvious priority is protecting both themselves and their sexual predators in biggest sports sex scandals in history. Multiple law enforcement investigations also grossly mishandled case after case, allowing hundreds more victims to suffer while preventing more criminals from exposure, and not just coaches or doctors but a pedo club network amongst the ruling elite. Just as in the Sandusky case, when larger institutions flagrantly know egregious crimes against children are being committed for decades yet no action other than protection of pedophiles occurs, the law enforcement-legal system through criminal stonewalling delay tactics further shield the larger network of unexposed, unpunished criminals perched in even higher places. All this speaks volumes confirming the existence of a much larger symptomatic, systemic, cultural plague that historically continues to shield the global pedophilia network from any and all accountability.
The question must be answered - why did they choose to ignore the growing epidemic allowing the sexual abuse to continue so long? Like the Sandusky/PSU/Second Mile pedo-operation that was also permitted to sexually and emotionally scar countless children for decades, besides the one singled out as the Dr. Frankenstein monster, there is also an inner elite private club of VIP pedophile monsters engaging in a far larger Olympic child sex trafficking ring that’s still being covered-up. One pending lawsuit filed as recently as May 2018 deeply implicates the involvement of both the USA Taekwondo NGB as well as the US Olympic Commission in an international child sex trafficking ring operation. Between the two other enormous decades’ long Olympic team scandals in US Swimming and US Gymnastics and the many smaller scale scandals across all the sports, the so called Olympics umbrella is nothing more than a cover for the global child sex trafficking network we already know exists. But even removing Larry Nassar out of the Olympic pedo-equation, USA Gymnastics has always been a safe sanctuary for sexual predators.
It’s important to realize that Larry Nassar is just one sexual predator within USA Gymnastics that harmed many child victims. Unfortunately there are many more Larry Nassars lurking in every Olympic sport. Identical to the other notorious NGB that also harbors countless pedophile coaches in USA Swimming, so goes US Gymnastics. A series of major exposé articles boldly published by Indy Star reveals scores of pedophile coaches working within US Gymnastics in recent decades that have sexually abused up to thousands of underage child athletes in its sport as well. Scanning the nation’s police files and court case records along with interviewing 115 coaches, athletes and club owners, in December 2016 the enterprising trio of investigative journalists who broke the Nassar story at Indy Star[cccix] had come up with a tally of 368 underage gymnasts who claim in the last 20 years they were sexually abused by a coach, club owner or US Gymnastics official.[cccx] That’s another victim every 20 days and we know that it’s a gross undercount since the vast majority of abuse incidents never get reported, especially in a competitive sport where so often the victim is the only one punished for disclosing. University of Pennsylvania researcher-advocate and CEO of CHILD USA Marci Hamilton warned that the actual number of victims is at least three to five times higher than the 368 count.[cccxi]
Just like in US Swimming, top USAG executives have willfully withheld and failed to report widespread allegations to authorities while adhering to policies that protect criminal coaches rather than their athletes.[cccxii] Also following the same identical pattern as its other guilty Olympic counterpart, USA Gymnastics customarily dismisses multiple warnings about predator coaches calling them “hearsay,” refusing to follow up on either reporting to law enforcement much less initiate internal investigations, but simply allows serial child molesters to continue their unchecked mobility and freedom to harm more victims.
A handful of high profile cases are presented here. But keep in mind thousands of these cases are known and thousands more remain unknown. One of the more notorious cases involving Coach William McCabe in Georgia shows that US Gymnastics discarded four dire warnings as simply “hearsay” over a seven year period while the rabid serial pedophile repeatedly moved from club to club and state to state preying on countless underage girls.[cccxiii] He would openly and brazenly brag about his latest abusive exploits in pursuit of little girls. A gym owner in 1998 complained to US Gymnastics that McCabe “should be locked in a cage before someone is raped.” Less than a year later, the predator was caught striking again. All in vain, a number of alarmed club owners reported McCabe’s out of control abuse to USAG but to no avail.
Lisa Ganser, mother of one of McCabe’s potential next victims wisely took her concerns with the coach’s emails sent to her 11-year old daughter to the nearest FBI office. McCabe was subsequently arrested and charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse to minors, in addition to videotaping girls in the shower and posting it on the internet.[cccxiv] He pleaded guilty in 2005 and is currently doing 30 years in the state pen. Confronted with USAG’s stonewalling complicity, Lisa Ganser and her daughter also decided to file a lawsuit against US Gymnastics for its criminal part in knowingly sitting on so much overwhelming evidence that needlessly caused a number of more victims to be molested. This chapter’s unifying theme is that every Olympic organization at every level regardless of sport, totally disregards accusers’ and witnesses’ allegations that systematically protect the predators operating under the Olympic brand name label. And despite this shameful criminal history, other than issuing endless empty platitudes and unfulfilled promises, neither US Gymnastics nor US Swimming nor the US Olympic Committee have still not made safety of its child athletes a priority. Nor have they owned responsibility for their criminal actions.
Then there’s UAG’s 2010 National Women’s Coach of the Year Marvin Sharp who coached Olympians at the national level. Within a year after his award, US Gymnastics received a detailed warning that he was touching kids inappropriately and taking explicit photos of them.[cccxv] Four long years and many victims later, in 2015 only after receiving word that he was taking more explicit pictures of a 14-year old gymnast who’d been his student for three years and was caught shaving her public hair did the NGB finally contact the police. After he was charged in federal court in Indianapolis, that same year he cowardly committed suicide inside his jail cell.[cccxvi]
A long list of complaints over the years accumulating on Coach Mark Schiefelbein that US Gymnastics kept hidden away was only obtained through a court subpoena after the coach was arrested when his 10-year old victim’s family contacted Tennessee police.[cccxvii] He’s serving 36 years for 7 counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of aggravated sexual exploitation of a prepubescent minor. Another pervert coach, James Bell, with another thick complaint dossier locked away in the Indianapolis US Gymnastics vault left a trail of police reports across the country. Forcing himself on top of an underage gymnast starting in 1990 in Oregon and the following year sticking his hand inside the shirt to pinch a 10-year old’s developing breast, yet out West this guy still somehow managed to avoid arrest. Bell also had other sexual misconduct allegations filed on him five years prior to his 2003 arrest after a former employer reported him to Rhode Island police for molesting three underage girls. In 2004 he then went on the lam until once again apprehended and charged for sexual abuse in 2015. With this serial pedophile on the loose for well over a decade, one can only imagine how many more victims across the country have been marred for life, all because US Gymnastics stingily holds onto its criminal policy of refusing to report crimes to law enforcement.
If you’re thinking déjà vu here, with USA Gymnastics perps no different from the USA Swimming perps, discerning that the exact same shameless pattern exists in each sport, you’re absolutely correct. Long before Dr. Nassar hit the headlines, a whole slew of US Gymnastics coaches were already known to be raping little girls and as fugitives pillaging their way across the nation while USAG headquarters sat back keeping their records confidentially hidden and secret while far more victims were harmed, refusing to share records with law enforcement until years later after their protected hordes of serial sex predators would eventually get busted. And the issue of coaches with mile long pedo-complaints or even child molesting coaches with court convictions somehow avoiding the US Gymnastics banned coach list runs a parallel identical course with the US Swimming debacle.[cccxviii] In every which wrong way, these two criminal NGBs demonstrate the same old, same old, serving as pedophile havens for child rapists. The entire criminal Olympic organization needs to be abolished.
Again, Nancy Hogshead-Makar summarizes what’s wrong with the Olympic brand monopoly on international amateur sports:
The Olympic sports movement is a pedophile’s dream set-up. Families are expected to give complete control over to the coach, often times banning parents from watching practices. Emotional abuse is considered ‘motivation,’ and there is almost no coaching oversight from sport governing bodies like US Soccer. To make matters worse, the US Olympic Committee’s official legal position is that the organization doesn’t protect athletes from sexual abuse, that removing pedophiles from the Olympic movement isn’t their job.[cccxix]
The Chuck Wielgus of US Gymnastics - former USAG head Steve Penny (another forced resignation fatality caused by the Nassar fallout) and his sport have insisted on pretending they’re the gold standard of child athlete safety, so full of themselves pontificating how much they care about the well-being of their athletes and the great lengths they go to in order to keep them safe… blah, blah, blah ad nauseam. Their criminal cover-up actions speak much louder than their false, do-nothing words. They too have a long history of using hush money with non-disclosure agreements as a precondition to settling claims and thereby keeping their epidemic abuse tightly under wraps.[cccxx] They too have a long history of engaging in obstruction of justice, withholding incriminating evidence about their army of pedo-predators from both law enforcement as well as at-risk children and their parents as the next potential victims. These longstanding facts belie all their phony hot air bluster. They are the pedo-cabal’s guardians at the gate, hired criminal protectors of the Olympic pedophilia network not any different from the rest of the major cabal players.
Here’s why Shelley Haymaker, an Indiana attorney representing child abuse victims, says US Gymnastics “sickens” her:
USAG may not have been the hand that ultimately abused these innocent children, but it was [and still is] definitely the arm.[cccxxi]
Indy Star won a case in a Georgia court in August 2016 to unseal depositions and release of USAG’s sexual abuse complaint files on 54 coaches that the NGB had been protecting.[cccxxii] Though USA Gymnastics appealed, in October the Georgia Supreme Court upheld the earlier ruling ordering the documents to be made public. Yet as of the beginning of January 2017, the criminal NGB outfit was still fighting and resisting, still bent on containing the growing scandal that Nassar blew wide open.
Despite its desperate stonewalling attempts to plug up the growing cracks in its cover-up dam, systematically silencing the abused with either hush money or simply ignoring them till they go away, while withholding tons of criminal complaints exposing legions of pedo-coaches’ and pedo-Nassar crimes from both law enforcement and the public (spearheaded by the trio of muckraking Indy Star journalists), US Gymnastics has found itself in a losing battle, overwhelmed and beaten by the rising tide of forces pushing for the truth to come out.
Pedophilia Lurks in Every Sport
Echoes of the exact same dynamics keep recurring ad nauseam in every Olympic sport - disempowered child victims who rarely get heard are being chronically harmed by longtime powerful abusers protected by their governing parent organizations always “caught” looking the other way for decades at a time, never really holding the perpetrators accountable.
And it’s not just Olympic sports riddled with these pedo-scandals, professional sports hold their shameful share as well. The storied franchise of the high-powered Boston Red Sox Major League baseball team knew of its clubhouse pedophile doing decades’ worth of untold damage to countless kids, with longtime owners Tom Yawkey and his wife on down in the organization knowing yet loyally protecting and keeping this sicko gainfully employed, all the while hiding their shameful dark secret from the rest of the world.[cccxxiii] For three straight decades from the 1960s until 1991, the Red Sox clubhouse manager was raping young African American boys off the street from the team’s spring training site in Winter Haven, Florida to Boston, and no one said a word until finally the horrific truth was quietly exposed in 1991.
This chapter has addressed the pedophilia scandals in the sports world that we know about (with UK’s soccer scandal reserved for the next chapter). But sadly there are likely many more remaining hidden in the closet that we still may never find out about. What we’ve learned is that no sport from the amateur to the professional level is immune. Pedophilia scandals and their cover-ups are the cancerous scourge that’s plagued humanity for far too long. Today’s light of truth brings opportunity to end this monstrous plague. Next we explore if sex trafficking of children and young women to all the major sporting events is fact or fiction.
Do Major Sporting Events like the Olympics, World Cup and Super Bowl Cause a Surge in Child Sex Trafficking?
In addition to winning lots of medals and protecting its pedophiles along with its Olympic brand reputation at all cost, based on past actions, the US Olympic Commission and its 47 NGBs’ true goal is to make lots of money pimping and sexually abusing its little girl-super athletes within its own international sex trafficking ring. Wait, but that’s not all. With top world sporting events like the Olympics, FIFA’s World Cup and America’s Super Bowl drawing millions of sports fans from around the world to host cities and billions more tuning in to watch on television, might the highly organized global sex trafficking network opportunistically move children and young women to these worldwide events as yet another sports industry dirty little secret hidden in its shameful criminal underbelly? A number of anti-trafficking experts, politicians, media accounts and victims themselves believe it’s true. After all, behind arms sales and drugs, human trafficking is this world’s third largest criminal industry[cccxxiv] and alarmingly the fastest growing.[cccxxv]
First, it’s worth redefining what sex trafficking is as a form of modern day slavery:
The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, obtaining, patronizing, or soliciting of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act, in which the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age.[cccxxvi]
Former 2006 World Cup insider and French national team coach Raymond Domenech expressed his shame connected to a
sport so closely linked to human trafficking:
It is truly scandalous. People are talking about women [and children], importing them to satisfy the base instincts of people associated with football. It is humiliating enough for me that football is linked with alcohol and violence. But this is worse. It is slaves that will come and be put into houses. Human beings are being talked about like cattle, and football is linked with that.[cccxxvii]
Using tourist visas, traffickers and pimps smuggle their sex slaves into host nations masquerading them in large numbers as sports fans. In the source country where the young sex slaves are recruited, the child procurers for these sex trafficking rings typically either abduct or promise poor, unsuspecting young victims well-paying jobs in the host nation of the sporting event.
Jennifer Rohmhildt, an executive director of a Greek anti-trafficking women’s advocacy group offers her insight into this global sex trade that automatically exploits underage mostly female victims for peak profits during major international sporting events:
Trafficking is a trap. And an event like the World Cup or the Olympics is the bait. Pushed by poverty, pulled by hopeful dreams of life in the West, and exploited by opportunists, women suspend disbelief and their better judgment and gamble on a better life.[cccxxviii]
While these worldwide athletic spectacles that generate billions of dollars’ worth of revenue increase criminal opportunity to also exploit and profit from a surging supply and demand market for trafficked in human beings as a coldblooded global commodity, more than one third children, they also create a global platform for raising public awareness and bolstering anti-human trafficking efforts. As an example, the UK based charity It’s a Penalty partnering with Cathay Pacific, HSBC Bank, the South China Morning Post and other affiliates in conjunction with major sporting events has launched a sexual child exploitation awareness and anti-trafficking campaign to inform and educate the public.[cccxxix] Loopholes in the laws in Hong Kong have exacerbated the human trafficking problem, but in the words of It’s a Penalty’s chief executive Sarah Carvahlo:
It is a global issue, it’s not just happening in Hong Kong. That’s why we’ve got the support of Australia for the Commonwealth Games, South Korea for the  Winter Games and America for the Super Bowl.
Through its initial efforts with a short film documentary shown on airline flights and at Brazil’s 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic venues, It’s a Penalty has expanded its operations to include providing 24-hotline numbers for reporting child sexual exploitation during all major sporting events, receiving 11,252 calls during Brazil’s 2014 World Cup and 5,051 during its 2016 Olympics.[cccxxx]
The 2004 Athens Olympics and 2006 World Cup in Germany were among the first of these major international sporting events where during the preceding days leading up to the games an estimated influx of 2,000 trafficked in children and young women were anticipated in Greece[cccxxxi] and multiple media accounts hyped that number up to 40,000 imported sex slaves in Germany to service the voracious sexual appetites of attending sports fans and global tourists, over 75% being men.[cccxxxii] With prostitution legal in both of those hosting nations, the speculated estimate in Germany proved to be grossly overinflated with German sex workers (including internally trafficked children) accommodating whatever increased demand may have resulted. But then the 2008 Beijing Olympics in China where prostitution is criminalized also appeared to produce no overt or significant spike in sex trafficking. That said, the number of identified trafficking victims in Greece nearly doubled in 2004 from the year before and a 24% decrease was observed the year after the Olympics.[cccxxxiii] Anecdotally, a young Russian woman abducted and trafficked into Greece for the Olympics stated:
I was worn out, literally used up and spat out… During the games I saw hundreds of men… who thought that a good day was watching sport, drinking and having sex. We [victims of trafficking] were just part of the entertainment.[cccxxxiv]
The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver located so close to the US border along with Canada’s less restrictive immigration laws, Vancouver’s normally high demand for commercial sex services and an organized crime presence would all seemingly place children at greater risk for sexual exploitation and child sex trafficking during the Winter Games.[cccxxxv] But again it apparently didn’t. A similar outcome resulted at 2010’s World Cup hosted by South Africa despite the false predictions ranging from 40-100,000 trafficked in prostitutes, supported by such risk factors as the area’s high crime rates, economic inequality, lack of both anti-trafficking laws and experience hosting major sporting events and relaxed visa laws during the event.[cccxxxvi] During the 2012 London Olympics an increase in the trafficking of children and young women from Eastern Europe, especially Romania, was reported in the media but never verified. Another confirmed phenomenon associated with every Olympic and World Cup host city prior to the major sporting events is the displacement of thousands of usually low income families for stadium and infrastructure development projects that both invite human labor trafficking for site construction as well as increase the poverty level of the displaced population that in turn significantly raises the risk of child sexual exploitation.[cccxxxvii]
Brazil’s back-to-back 2014 World Cup followed closely by the 2016 Olympics is a case in point. An estimated quarter of a million poor people were forcibly removed from their homes in the slums or favelas to make way for the major sporting events.[cccxxxviii] With well over a million foreigners attending the World Cup and another million tourists for the Olympics just under half foreign,[cccxxxix] the nation’s widespread poverty in Rio and beyond unfortunately supplied more than enough human resource to meet the swelling pedophilic demand of the visiting sports-sex tourism crowds attending the two sporting event extravaganzas. No need for sex slaves to be flown in from abroad when they’re already embedded in such abundant supply living just minutes away from the Olympic Village and all the sporting venues. Rio’s elite wealth and exotic tourist beach attractions exist in stark contrast literally next door to the bleak world of abject poverty, daily violence and extreme child sexual exploitation already rampant in the country.
At least a half million children are estimated to be sexually exploited in Brazil, considered the second biggest trafficking nation in the world according to the women’s rights group CAMTRA.[cccxl] Poverty has parents commonly selling off their children to pedophiles and little girls being offered to sexual predators as winning raffle prizes.[cccxli] It’s become normalized, especially in small impoverished villages and towns in the countryside. With 43% of the traffickers women, girls as young as 8- and 9-years old are fair game, especially for truckers along the notorious BR-116 highway that runs from Rio to Brazil’s largest city Sao Paulo where the World Cup and Olympic soccer venues were played. Brazil’s rampant corruption of politicians, local mayors and judges are all among the biggest pedo-profiteers having turned Brazil into both a major source as well as destination nation for child sex slavery and international pedo-haven for the sleazy sex tourism trade linked to the larger global pedophilia network.[cccxlii]
Yet another sound argument maintains major sporting events do cause a rise in human trafficking, but it’s long before the games begin, pointing to the plight of the thousands of migrant workers turned slave laborers shipped in to Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics and 2018 World Cup and Qatar for the 2022 World Cup.[cccxliii] These enormous construction projects required to create the necessary infrastructure for major sporting events built from the ground up invariably attract forced labor trafficking with labor slaves often trapped in inhumane, dangerous conditions over protracted periods of time incurring a significant death toll.
Frequent assertions have been made that sex traffickers’ biggest payday in the United States is the annual Super Bowl, though during the last decade this contention has been hotly debated and empirically challenged. The 2018 Super Bowl in Minneapolis expected a surplus of a million visiting fans to the city of little more than 400,000 residents. In preparation, the metro police beefed up its presence working with 23 other law enforcement agencies, closely monitored online sex sites, introduced online sting operations as well as checked local hotels and strip club hangouts for potential trafficking victims.[cccxliv] While the anti-trafficking group Polaris was staffing its 24-hour hotline, its CEO Bradley Myles told Reuters:
All this is, is a one-day snapshot into what otherwise is a 365-day problem. The same traffickers that are committing trafficking during the Super Bowl [are] going to wake up in the morning on Monday and do the same thing.[cccxlv]
Reuters immediately follows this quote with:
Big sporting events, from the World Cup to the Olympics, regularly trigger a panic over an influx of sex-trade workers, with many being victims of human trafficking (Boldface emphasis mine).[cccxlvi]
A caveat insertion seems relevant here. Owned, operated and controlled by House of Rothschild money, both Reuters and Associated Press are the two largest monopolizing international newswire services that daily circulate their newsfeeds to thousands of media outlets throughout the world.[cccxlvii] Since the Rothschilds’ central banking system centered in the City of London as well as every central bank located in every nation on earth but one (the so called “pariah nation” North Korea),[cccxlviii] as chief financier for the global pedophilia cabal,[cccxlix] it’s highly implausible that Reuters would dare expose the true scope and size of today’s global child sex trafficking network. Thus, the above quoted statement could easily be read as a testimonial to not biting the hand that feeds it. Reuters would naturally propagate the “myth” that all major sporting events “trigger a panic” over phantom “skyrocketing” levels of child sex trafficking rather than admit the truth that they do create opportunity for increased child sexual exploitation. And though the trafficking increases may not appear off the charts based on the next to no current means available for accurate tracking, the most watched sporting events on our planet do increase profitability of associated legal as well as illegal businesses. And you better believe that the global child sex traffickers as part of an elite, top tier pedo club network would rather have us think more kids brought in to be abused at the Olympics or Super Bowl is all purely overblown, exaggerated media hype rather than anything real or substantial.
That said, a strong vocal critic of the media driven “hype” alleging the influx of sex traffickers surrounding each NFL championship game comes from the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women, a nonprofit anti-trafficking coalition group operating out of Thailand that’s published a 2011 report called “What’s the Cost of a Rumor?” used as a primer for not buying into the annual Super Bowl hype.[cccl] It contends that sporting events become police task force opportunities to squander fiscal and manpower resources primarily invested in online sting operations with undercover officers posing as young girl prostitutes and would-be traffickers looking for johns. Then at the end of the day, using this charade for PR purposes, police departments and anti-trafficking task forces then conduct press conferences boasting about their limited trophy arrests that in actuality has virtually no impact on the global human trafficking network operating 365 days a year. Police representatives from past Super Bowl cities unanimously concur that no sudden spikes are observed either in the days ahead, on or right after the Super Bowl with either adult prostitution arrests or sexually exploited minors.[cccli]
Right after the big game gloss, the focus is then customarily put away for another year. Also the myth erroneously conflating adult prostitution with human sex trafficking gets misused in the mix as an enormous waste of taxpayer dollars mostly for show and tell purposes, opportunistically exploited by self-serving agendas of politicians, law enforcement agencies, sensationalizing media outlets, prostitution abolitionist groups and a few anti-trafficking organizations eager to get their message out any chance they can.
Just prior to the 2017 Super Bowl, a nationwide trafficking sting operation is said to have netted over 750 suspects in 15 states, 29 trafficking pimps and 723 customers jailed in the largest sweep in the 13 years law enforcement’s been keeping track of Super Bowl arrests.[ccclii] Over 100 arrests were in Houston alone where the game was played with a grand total of 6 minors and 86 adults rescued nationwide.
Kate Mogulescu, the director of New York based Legal Aid Society that works with trafficking victims has this to say:
Police could better spend their resources. Police have other types of investigating resources, including community engagement (and) if the only interaction that victims of trafficking can expect to have with police is by virtue of raids, stings… that creates the biggest barrier.
So when someone in the know working in the trenches is stating that law enforcement’s big nationwide sweeps in its sting operation raids pose the worst barrier to actually helping victims and making a difference in reducing the global trafficking operations, she is saying that it’s grossly counterproductive in waging the larger battle to end modern slavery. The few saved victims are typically used as trophy statistics at press conferences to prop up and justify widespread sting operations as law enforcement’s only M.O. to combat the human trafficking problem. Police sting operations and raids are worthless in terms of their next to no impact on eradicating the planetary-wide slavery epidemic and its gross failure to help the remaining millions globally still trapped as victims as well as purely from a cost-effective analysis. In every way it’s clearly the wrong approach. But then like lots of things, it’s more than likely that way by design.
On a personal level for those slave victims still locked in a world of terror, when cops charge in like gangbusters with guns drawn for battle, the criminals only become more prone toward violently acting out against their victims, endangering their lives all the more. When on high alert, pimps/traffickers reacting to aggressive law enforcement interventions like police raids will increase their beatings, psychological torture and sexual abuse toward their held hostage captives, erratically escalating to more severe levels. Plus the Stockholm syndrome is also commonly present where victims, for survival sake, tend to align, identify and side more with their abusers than the police as the so called rescuers. To trafficked underage abuse victims, law enforcement raids in sting operations cast police increasingly as feared, not to be trusted, adversarial, ever-dangerous threats, hence “the biggest barrier.”
The annual drill of hyped up, misplaced priorities in effect diverts both precious and limited resources as well as much needed attention away from the far bigger problems of gender and economic inequality, global poverty, gentrification and population displacement that by elite design pose underlying causal factors at the growing impoverished local levels giving rise to global human trafficking and child sexual exploitation, not unlike the many by design war zones.[cccliii] And that’s not even including the near zero impact it has on the very real epidemic of human trafficking with 4 out of 5 modern slaves being women (51%) and children (28% with 20% girls, 8% boys),[cccliv] and reaching pandemic crisis as more slaves shamefully exist in today’s world than ever before in human history.[ccclv] In other words, the bottom line is the biggest single beneficiary of these hyped up sting raids is the international pedo-cabal itself, because the day after the Super Bowl, it’s largely back to normal business as usual for another 364 days of the year with its massive worldwide operation remaining totally unaffected, fully intact, still remaining hidden off public radar, yet continuing to flourish and grow every year as never before. Since the big Super Bowl winner is the crime cabal itself, it’s very likely the primary force behind this enduringly ineffectual urban legend ritual and its equally ineffectual sting operations.
You may be asking yourself how this so called urban legend got started. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, traffickers brought in 10,000 prostitutes to Miami for the 2010 Super Bowl to make an easy quick cash payload.[ccclvi] That pronouncement then led to the following year when Texas attorney general soon turned Governor Greg Abbott making the bold claim that the Super Bowl is America’s “single largest human trafficking incident,” which ever since set the stage for this ongoing seasonal debate.[ccclvii] A number of anti-trafficking advocacy groups initially agreed with Abbott, since basic supply and demand metrics would logically lead to this same conclusion. Plus shining light on this near taboo topic of pedophilia and child trafficking offered an all too rare and important opportunity to pass up for anti-trafficking/anti-slavery groups. But Abbott’s prediction just before his Dallas Super Bowl that according to Forbes resulted in “133 underage arrests for prostitution” out of a city of 1.3 million residents with hundreds of thousands more visitors hardly seems prophetic or true.[ccclviii] But just the same, the city was ready.[ccclix]
But wait, if the 133 underage sex slaves arrested as the victims of the bad guy traffickers end up behind bars for prostitution, how would that be then touted as an endorsement of the false notion that the Super Bowl is a slave trafficking magnet? A huge part of the problem is the historically abusive treatment underage victims systemically receive at the hands of America’s punitive law enforcement and broken legal justice system that labels them “prostitutes” rather than human and child trafficking victims, methodically thrown in adult prisons or held indefinitely in juvenile detention while awaiting prosecution as adults in what amounts to a horrendously cruel process of re-victimization.[ccclx] Also note the vast difference between the rather grandiose 2010 Super Bowl estimate of 10,000 trafficked in prostitutes compared only a year later to the paltry 133 arrests in 2011. Either way, little good ever ends up the outcome of emotionally reactive, knee jerk responses. Nonetheless, Abbott’s pregame proclamation was apparently well-served, like clockwork regularly catching the nation’s attention every Super Bowl Sunday thereafter, creating a one day or pregame weeklong national anti-trafficking policy with ineffectual, counterproductive police interventions solely based on a false, never proven hypothesis of one politician’s bogus claim. But then that’s how corporate media regularly colludes with the international crime cabal to cunningly obscure and shield the global child sex trafficking network from further public scrutiny, accurate awareness and potential accountability.
And every year ever since we hear recurring echoes reverberated at another politician’s or police task force press conference that insists on keeping this worn-out urban legend still alive. Just three years ago it was yet another Texas politician’s turn to continue propagating the myth when Senator John Cornyn repeated the governor’s mantra:
The Super Bowl has one of the highest levels of human sex trafficking activity of any event in the country.[ccclxi]
Cornyn’s remark was later clarified by his staff to apply only to the host city. But the latest results from an Arizona State University study released then completely refuted his misleading presumption. The study found no discernable difference between the numbers of sex ads posted at online websites just prior to the 2014 Super Bowl hosted in New York and non-host city Phoenix, the percentages 84% and 80% respectively.[ccclxii] Moreover, the myth killer was the number of ads in New York in the host year was less than half of the following year’s total when it wasn’t hosting the game, while Phoenix ads did increase from the non-host year to the host year.[ccclxiii] Hence, the research results failed to link any connection between the Super Bowl and increased sex trafficking activity. Additionally, this research was methodologically flawed in its attempt to extrapolate a sex ad as evidence of trafficking. Also the saturated presence these days of law enforcement posting online sex ads of would-be traffickers and underage sex workers in its massive nationwide sting operations (that along with sex ads only increase over time) would further contaminate the internal validity of this study. All this shows is that due to the clandestine status and nature of the global criminal sex trafficking network, neither the current measurement mechanisms nor, more importantly, the current political and economic will exists to accurately and precisely measure the increasing population of children being trafficked, raped and murdered around the world. The international pedo-cabal wouldn’t have it any other way.
On a related note, in recent years where so much adult service sex advertising has been widely used online by sex workers, pimps and traffickers in the commercial sex trade, the website Backpage.com was recently shut down by the pedo-enabling FBI in April 2018. At the same time its co-founder was arrested and charged with 93 criminal counts including soliciting prostitution and money laundering.[ccclxiv] Of course in its abrupt absence, plenty of other adult service websites are busily filling the void.
Linda Smith, a former Congresswoman and president of the nonprofit anti-trafficking organization Shared Hope International[ccclxv] was called in as a consultant to assess Indianapolis for its “preparedness” prior to its 2012 Super Bowl. She gave the Indiana capital a D grade, labeling it “a hub city for prostitution” based on the nonstop flow of its transient major sporting event populations constantly passing through.[ccclxvi] The city is the home of both the NFL Indianapolis Colts and the Olympic pedophilia haven the US Gymnastics national governing body. On top of that, each and every year this apparent trafficking hub is also the host drawing large numbers for the most famous US car racing event the Indianapolis 500 as well as the March Madness Final Four college basketball tournament championship. So if there was any merit to the notion that major sporting events increase child sex trafficking, this busy “prostitution hub” with the D grade would be it. Linda Smith explained:
When we look at traffic patterns across the county, most of the girls we speak to have been moved in and out of cities for large sporting events. First off, I told them their city was broken.[ccclxvii]
Linda faulted Indianapolis for its treatment of underage trafficking victims as criminals most often tried in court as adults for prostitution. Appraising the city’s legal system, it too left much to be desired regarding its policy classifying and prosecuting the crimes of buyers and sellers of children. Linda Smith worked with the governor and attorney general to fast track tougher anti-trafficking legislation passed just in time for the 2012 Super Bowl.[ccclxviii]
As an adjunctive aside regarding the state of Indiana, it’s worth noting that the global elite’s company man for president if and when Donald Trump is impeached, taken out and/or removed from office, native Indianan US Vice President Mike Pence as former state governor has a shrouded, muddy history connected to the crime cabal with all his congressional records sealed until December 2022.[ccclxix] He has good reason. Though he wraps himself in red, white and blue Christian fundamentalism,[ccclxx] the freshman Indiana congressman was a dutiful Bush-Cheney 9/11-anthrax false flag insider,[ccclxxi] thrusted years later onto the Trump ticket via a visit from Illuminati prez Henry Kissinger.[ccclxxii] Mike Pence has publicly stated, “I will model my vice presidency after Dick Cheney.”[ccclxxiii] Additionally, multiple sources have linked him to the Bush-Cheney-Clinton pedophilia network,[ccclxxiv] including engaging in satanic ritual child sexual abuse and child sacrifice.[ccclxxv] And as home of the USA Gymnastics, Indiana remains a hub for the pedo-network.
If America’s top Olympic officials are in any way involved in organized sex trafficking of its child athletes or pre- and postgame sex slaves at its venues, routinely moving them across state and international borders for numerous decades, with at least one pending lawsuit already asserting this very contention with child athletes, it opens up a much wider examination and scrutiny to determine if the International Olympic Committee, the top of the pyramid monopoly franchise controlling world amateur child athletics, may also be a special subset within the larger planetary child sex trafficking network… only this one wears the coveted elite “Olympics brand” label. The power of this pyramid scheme is just as corrupt and no doubt just as pedophilia-saturated as the sexually blackmailed, thoroughly compromised global political system whereby virtually only pedo-puppet leaders of the world like the Bushes, Clintons, Obama, and Trump are preselected by the planetary rulers to do their evil bidding. Concealing his share of underage sexploits, the prospect that wrecking ball Trump’s just another compromised pedo-stooge figurehead installed and controlled by the same Zionist neocon puppet masters will be taken up further in the PedoGate update chapter.
Meanwhile, thoroughly established, irrefutable evidence confirms that this private pedo club of adrenochrome addicted planetary controllers is comprised of major top players from aristocratic and royalty bloodlines, secret societies, central banking, religion, government, the military, intelligence community, organized crime, high courts, law enforcement, child welfare and global charity organizations, media, entertainment and Fortune 500 corporations. All secretly working in synch together as foxes guarding their global pedo-henhouse, they are the globalized pedophilia cabal.
One common thread shared between the pedophilia scandal in Hollywood and all the sports scandals is the predatory groomers’ promise of fame, fortune and glory to entice vulnerable little kids as their victims by stoking and preying on their biggest hopes, dreams and aspirations. Of course another common thread is that this dynamic in the sports and entertainment industries is worldwide today. The globalized interlocking structure of this massive child raping network has its top level partners-in-crime centrally located in global centers around the world - London (banking), Brussels (continental government EU and military NATO), Rome (Catholic Church), Washington DC (military), New York (global governance UN, media and finance) and Los Angeles (media entertainment) all-encompassing national, continental and international hubs of control containing all of the above cabal players. So why wouldn’t the pedo-cabal’s worldwide amateur sports branch headquartered in Switzerland (IOC) and Colorado (USOC) tapping into 44 million athletic kids globally not be included? The facts as we move down the rabbit hole all indicate it already is.
Beyond question or doubt on top of what we currently know, deductive reasoning and logic would also conclude that top elite echelons within the planet-wide sports industry as birds-of-a-feather must also be active fellow pedo-participants. After all, what intrinsically binds and bonds all of these intertwining, overlapping, corrosively criminal elements is their worship of the same ungodly, demonic power of Lucifer. At this juncture in human history, evidence is far too incontrovertibly overwhelming to continue ignoring Lucifer’s current ownership and control over this earthly dominion. At this late hour, ignorance and blindness continue at our own peril and self-destruction.
This chapter has demonstrated that all the international, regional and national sports organizations from top to bottom, global to local, are also steeped in this pedo-pandemic as well. In short, the elite’s Luciferian machine that’s been ruling over this earth for centuries is in fact the hidden-in-plain-sight pedophilia cabal. Yet with the Pandora’s Box of scandals busted wide open over this last quarter century alone for all the world to finally see, on full display under the spotlight these primetime crime players’ guilt has been outed and their savagely grotesque, perverse nakedness exposed like never before. For the sake of our defenseless children, now that we know what’s been going on right under our noses for so long, it’s high time we begin rescuing children from their slaughterhouses and finally hold these satanic evildoing baby killers accountable. Like their pedophilic overlord George HW Bush once confessed (in so many words), “If the people knew what we’ve been up to, they’d hang us from the nearest lampposts.” By George you’re right, you old gizzard lizard widower you! Your New World Disorder’s coming after you while your cold blood’s still pumping from your puny little heartless heart. You and your kin owe us citizens of the world one huge karmic debt to pay off for your lifelong human genocidal crime spree from JFK to 9/11 and far beyond.
And on that note, get ready UK, Europe, Australia and pedo-rings stretching to all four corners of this earth, because now that we the people are finally onto you, we’re coming after all you child murdering rapists as well, starting with unraveling your exposed pedophilia cover-ups operating geographically outside America as this book’s next section of chapters.
