From Wayne Madsen ReportJune 20-22, 2014 – SPECIAL REPORT. FBI killed Franklin scandal investigator
WMR can exclusively report that it was the Federal Bureau of Investigation that placed a bomb on the private airplane that killed state of Nebraska chief investigator Gary Caradori and his 6-year old son “AJ” on July 11, 1990. Caradori had been hired by the Nebraska unicameral legislature to investigate allegations that a number of Nebraska youth had been sexually abused and transported over state lines in a scandal centered around the Franklin Credit Union, headed by rising GOP African-American star Lawrence King.
A very knowledgeable source involved with what became known as the “Franklin Scandal” told WMR that Caradori flew to Chicago ostensibly to attend the All Star game on July 10 at Wrigley Field. In reality, the trip to the game was a cover for Caradori to meet with a source who handed him photographs that proved that Nebraskan children, some from the famed Boy’s Town orphanage, were being used for the sexual gratification of important political leaders in Washington, including Vice President and President George H W Bush.
Caradori phoned his wife and another investigator shortly before the All-Star game and told them the same thing: “I got what I came after. I got ‘em by the balls. I’ve got pictures. I will take them to the game and bring them back to Nebraska.”
When Caradori began to follow the money behind the Franklin scandal, he discovered two things: the Franklin Credit Union was being used by the White House and CIA to launder money for the Iran-contra affair and King and his associates were given a free ride to sexually traffic in and molest children, including many procured from Boy’s Town.
One of those implicated in the Franklin scandal was Housing and Urban Development Secretary Sam Pierce. At the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas, King held a $1 million reception for Pierce. However, King’s salary at the time was $14,000 a year and the actual cost of the reception was $300,000. The difference, $700,000, went into a slush fund that was laundered by the Franklin Credit Union for various “activities” sponsored by the CIA and White House.
On July 11, Caradori took off in his private plane from Chicago en route to Nebraska. Witnesses on the ground said they saw a flash in the sky followed by an explosion. Initial news reports stated that Caradori’s aircraft exploded in flight and then crashed. However, subsequent news reports were altered and claimed the aircraft exploded upon impact with the ground. Caradori and his son were killed in the crash. The local Sheriff’s office reported that scattered in the wreckage were child pornographic photographs. The FBI arrived and began systematically removing the photographs, debris, and Caradori’s briefcase. Meanwhile, FBI agents in Lincoln, Nebraska entered Caradori’s office and seized his files. Another FBI agent showed up at the office of a Nebraska state official investigating the Franklin case and demanded he turn over his files. The state official told the FBI agent to “get the hell out.”
The Bush White House immediately began covering up the Franklin scandal and put pressure on the remaining Nebraska state investigators. The FBI used the Kansas City mob to intimidate high-level witnesses and investigators of the Franklin scandal. One of the lead investigators also told WMR, “the FBI killed Caradori . . . they put the bomb on his airplane.”
An attempt to hire former CIA director William Colby to lead a state of Nebraska investigation of the Franklin scandal failed in a legislative committee 4 to 3 vote. Instead, the committee appointed attorney Kirk Naylor as its chief investigator. A major figure involved in investigating Franklin told WMR that Naylor was the most incompetent person the committee could have found to lead the investigation. Colby was a Vietnam War colleague of Nebraska state Senator John De Camp, one of major investigators of the Franklin scandal. Colby reportedly was ready to expose the CIA’s own involvement in the use of child prostitutes for the purposes of political and diplomatic blackmail. Colby died in a suspicious canoeing accident on the Chesapeake Bay on April 27, 1996.
Monsignor Robert Hupp, the Vicar-General of the Archdiocese of Omaha, a former Navy chaplain, and, in 1976, the first-ever clergy member of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations, had reported in the early 1970s to his bishop that there was sexual abuse at Boy’s Town that even involved a priest murdering a boy. Hupp was later named the head of Boy’s Town, ostensibly to keep him quiet. Hupp was in charge of Boy’s Town until the late 1980s, when the Franklin scandal first hit the front pages. Eventually, even after stepping down as the head of the orphanage, Hupp was forced to leave Boy’s Town altogether. WMR has learned that in 2003 a longtime supporter of Boy’s Town allowed Hupp to move into his cabin in Mausten, Wisconsin after being forced to leave the facilities at Boy’s Town. A reporter for the Omaha World-Herald, a newspaper owned by Nebraska billionaire Warren Buffett and which always had a skeptical view of the Franklin scandal, volunteered to drive Hupp to Wisconsin. Upon arriving at the cabin, the reporter prepared dinner for Hupp. The retired monsignor who broke the Catholic Church’s silence on its role in the Franklin scandal, died in his sleep that same night.
The iconic Washington Times front page that capped off the Franklin scandal’s sporadic and spotty news coverage.
Anyone who believes the Franklin Scandal and Cover-up is over and done with would be dead wrong. On January 20, 2012, Carol Stitt, the 29-year director of the Nebraska Foster Care Review Board, an individual who aggressively protected foster care children in Nebraska from sexual perverts and other undesirable foster parents, was dismissed by her own board of directors. The 11-member board had been stacked by loyalists of Republican Governor Dave Heineman whose goal it was to oust Stitt. As with the constant intimidation of witnesses involved in Franklin, Stitt also found herself investigated by the federal government’s Office of Special Counsel for allegedly violating the Hatch Act by attending a 2006 political campaign rally for Republican and football coach legend Tom Osborne. Although Stitt, a state employee, would not normally be subject to the rarely-enforced Hatch Act that bans political activity by federal employees, Stitt’s Foster Care Review Board received funds from the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The HHS’s initial complaint against Stitt, which arose from her attendance at the 2006 Osborne rally, began when current GOP U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse was serving as assistant secretary for planning and evaluation at HHS. From 1996 to 1998, Sasse was one of four tutors/proctors for the U.S. House of Representatives page program. During this time frame, a number of House pages complained of sexual harassment from GOP House members. Representatives Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) and Mark Foley (R-FL) were later named as principal harassers of underage male pages. WMR has also learned from a member of the Sasse family that physical and psychological abuse have been rampant in the Sasse family. Senate candidate Sasse, who helped the John Ashcroft Justice Department draw up torture policy along with the CIAm is a home-schooler whose religious beliefs are based on neo-Calvinist fundamentalist Christian Dominionism.
Sasse faces two opponents after coming from the political wilderness to defeat better known and financed GOP candidates in the primary. David Domina, a trial lawyer, is Sasse’s lackluster Democratic opponent, while Dan Buhrdorf is mounting a spirited independent challenge under the Tax Wall Street Party banner.

Adjudication in the The Case of the Pope: Global Child Trafficking and Murder
Public Information Bulletin No. 2: An Update from the Citizen Prosecutor’s Office
lThursday, April 10, 2014 GMT
FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLIC RELEASE
The common law trial in absentia of the three top officials of the Vatican and the Church of England – Jorge Bergoglio, Adolfo Pachon and Justin Welby – began last Monday, April 7 with the opening arguments of the Citizen Prosecutor. The Court convened in closed session under tight security, presided by five Magistrates and a complete Court room staff, along with twenty seven sworn Jury members.
The Prosecutor has spent the past three days presenting affidavits or videotaped statements from sixteen (16) witnesses from Canada, the United States of America, England and Holland. These witnesses’ statements and evidence address the complicity of the Defendants or their agents in the sexual and financial trafficking and the ritual rape, torture and murder of children in these countries.
The Prosecution will be calling upon the first of these witnesses to be present in Court for examination and questioning commencing the week of Monday, April 14, when the Special Assistant to the Prosecutor, Reverend Kevin Annett, will also be present in Court to give testimony and assistance.
Here are some details from the Prosecution’s case evidence:
The Prosecution’s evidence falls into three categories: Institutional Genocide, Child Sacrifice and Ritual Killing, and Child Trafficking. Each of these will be addressed by the witnesses and corroborating material.
The sixteen witnesses in this first round of evidence have direct, firsthand experience and knowledge of the role of the Defendants and their agents in all of these crimes, including in the so-called NINTH CIRCLE child sacrificial cult. Besides participants in this cult and survivors of government experimental programs, these witnesses include former officials of the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches, retired and serving policemen, indigenous elders, a retired senior politician from England, an operative of the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS), and a former civil servant in the Argentine military junta.
The Prosecution has also received an affidavit from Rev. Kevin Annett, ITCCS Field Secretary, that connects his own victimization by church and state in Canada with his discovery of the activity of NINTH CIRCLE members at Indian residential schools across Canada, and with the continued murder of indigenous women and children by this Circle on the west coast of Canada. Rev. Annett will appear in Court next week, sometime after April 14, to be examined by the Prosecution and present further evidence.
Former NINTH CIRCLE participants whose evidence was presented in Court last Tuesday, April 8 testify that Cree Indians in northern Canada are being continually targeted by the Circle for torture and murder because of the valuable uranium resources on their lands which are coveted by the United States military and corporations associated with the NINTH CIRCLE and their adherents within both the American and Canadian governments. The names of prominent Canadian and American politicians and corporate officials who engage in these Circle ritual killings have been named in Court and entered into the evidence record.
The NINTH CIRCLE began at least three centuries ago in the Vatican but has expanded to embrace local satanic child sacrifice cults across Europe and the Americas. Thanks to Catholic pressure, the Circle affiliated strongly with Nazi cultic groups that had close ties with the Waffen S.S. during the 1930′s and ’40′s, including the so-called KNIGHTS OF DARKNESS, whose members included former Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger. Many of these members continued their murderous acts against children after World War Two, especially in Canada. Testimony was received from the sole survivor of a Knights of Darkness cult at the former Royal Canadian Air Force Base known as Lincoln Park in Calgary, Alberta. The Witness observed the ritual torture and killing of twenty abducted children by a former SS doctor and three other “Knights” working under cover as Canadian military personnel, between the years 1956 and 1958. Records of the SS doctor codenamed “Major Bob Armstrong” (SS number “091374 SS“) have been confirmed by Canadian government documents obtained by the Court from a former official of the Canadian Military Intelligence Agency, the NIS.
Other witnesses to NINTH CIRCLE cults confirm the presence of British Royal Family members MOUNTBATTEN and PRINCE PHILIP at these child sacrifices, whose presence was concealed by defendant WELBY. Jesuit officers including defendants PACHON and BERGOGLIO were also present at the same rituals at Carnarvon Castle in Wales and at an undisclosed French Chateau, during the 1980′s and 1990′s. Similar sacrifices were conducted at Catholic and Anglican Indian residential schools in Kamloops, British Columbia and Brantford, Ontario during the 1960′s and earlier, according to statements from living and deceased indigenous eyewitnesses.
7. A massive child trafficking network operating through official Roman Catholic adoption, “planned parenthood” and foster care agencies was described by a witness with inside knowledge of this network and its coordination through a special office at the Vatican. This office siphons children into NINTH CIRCLE cultic activity and child sexual trafficking networks around the world, according to another witness, a former employee of the Curia in Rome.
8. An eyewitness to the personal involvement of Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, in such child trafficking in Argentina during the reign of the military Junta has presented his affidavit to the Court. He is a former civil servant with the Junta and is in protected custody in Spain. He will appear before the Court to corroborate his statement.
Further evidence of the Prosecution will be disclosed in upcoming bulletins, and according to the decisions of the Court Magistrates.

Peace and Freedom Party
Subject: Analysis of The Special Relationship with The United States and Royal Family of Great Britain
To General Dempsey:
Given the current geo-political environment it is vital to examine the role of the Royal Family as the main instigator of global conflict for the past 100 years. The Royal Family has advocated openly or indirectly the following conflicts:
- World War 1: Instigated by the firing of Chancellor Bismarck. (Germany)
- World War 2: Instigated by the Royal Family with the aide of Prescott Bush.
- Vietnam War: Instigated by the Royal Families of the U.K. and France, with France wanting their pre war colony back.
- Iraq War 1: Instigated by the Saudi and Kuwait Royal Families, satellite puppets of the British Commonwealth.
- Iraq War 2: Instigated by George Bush 2, grandson of Hitler financier Prescott Bush.
- Afghanistan War: Instigated by Saudi Arabia who were involved in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
- Attempted War with the United States and Syria, instigated by the Queen of England to Destroy Russia.
- Attempted War with United States and Russia. In February of 2014 The United States, U.K. and The EU financed Neo Nazi’s to take over the government of Ukraine.
The Royal Family has instigated directly or indirectly every geo political conflict for over the last 100 years. With Germany moving to integrate more towards Russia and China, its no longer possible to coexist with the Royal Family and their Malthusian Proclivities. China is playing a constructive roll in its efforts to integrate with Germany and Russia highlighted by their quest to rebuild the Silk Road. Russia has played a constructive role in its anti drug policy and their cooperation with anti terrorism. The question must be asked what constructive role has the House of Windsor played in global events in the last 100 years? Should the military consider the British Royal Family a direct strategic threat to the United States? We went to war against Britain for a reason. Have we forgotten?

Hi everyone: Considering my upcoming journey to Europe, I thought it appropriate to share (below) what I wrote after being unlawfully incarcerated in a British prison and then deported, in May of 2011. This is especially made relevant with our criminal conviction of the traitorous Elizabeth Windsor and the nullification of the authority of the British “crown”. So take heart! And enjoy. – Kevin Annett
by Kevin Annett
May 31, 2011
I wear as a badge of honor my deportation from a country of liars and cut throats.
- Big Bill Haywood, IWW leader and revolutionary, 1920
The filthy fiction calling itself the Crown of England finally vomited me from its midst this week, only five days before I was to speak of its crimes at the annual Against Child Abuse Rally in London’s Trafalgar Square.
I am proud to have shared a British prison with many freedom fighters over time, including my own free thinking ancestor Peter Annett, who was jailed and pilloried in London at the age of 70, in the year 1763, for writing “seditious blasphemy” against the Church of England. And that repression continues today, against innocent men and women still caught in the claws of the police state known as England.
Here is what happened:
The room is small, unventilated, and foul-smelling, and crammed with ten of us. I am the only white person there.
A Malaysian mother with her four year old daughter sits in one corner, sobbing uncontrollably. Incarcerated for half a day, she’s one of the luckier ones: a young Turkish man called Farid has languished in here for nearly three days, isolated from his four children. Farid has lived in England for eleven years, doing sweat jobs for shit wages and loyally paying his taxes, but tomorrow he’ll be deported over a technicality in his work visa.
There is no appeal allowed. His children will not accompany him.
This is the Immigration Prison in Stansted airport, outside London. The time is the early hours of May 30, 2011.
The net fell on me suddenly the night before, as I made my way through the border control desk after disembarking from the Netherlands.
After asking me why I was coming to England, a banal twit in a uniform scanned my passport through his computer, and quickly looked shocked as he peered through thick lenses at the screen. He scuttled off to speak to his supervisor, who I watched through the glass window of his office as he looked at his own computer, nodded his head and said something to his crony.
Triumphantly – I guess that as an employee of the private company Reliance Ltd. that runs British immigration services now, he gets extra points for deporting someone – The Twit returned and informed me with a whine of condescension that my giving public lectures was “unusual” for a tourist, that I was “suspect”, and would therefore be barred from entering England.
“What exactly am I suspected of doing?” I asked the guy.
“But first you are to come this way” he motioned, ignoring my question like I hadn’t said anything, and we walked to a tiny holding cell. The Twit left me alone in there for a half hour, I guess to make me sweat, but when he returned I was calmly whistling an Irish melody that seemed to annoy him to no end.
“I bet you find your job difficult, you know, putting people through all this” I ventured to The Twit as he fiddled with his papers.
Attempting a smile, he answered,
“No, I enjoy it, actually. One meets very fascinating people in this line of work”.
If only you knew, I thought, but said nothing.
The Twit refused to give me his name when I asked, nor could I know the name of his supervisor. He also wasn’t wearing a badge number, although later he made a gaff when he donned another coat and I saw his number: 6676.
“You’ll be in here tonight, until we can send you back from whence you came” The Twit informed me, gesturing to a white door. He knocked, and a stern young guy answered and glared at me like I was yesterday’s trash. Then I was locked in with a whole crowd of dark skinned people.
Despair gazed back at me from the sad eyes of my fellow prisoners who lay or sat around the room. They were all deflated, tired and beaten. A TV was blaring mindless crap at them so I walked over and switched it off. The young Turkish guy whose name was Farid looked surprised, and then he smiled at me weakly, and nodded.
After my obligatory finger printing and photographing – I asked the Reliance goon if I could have a copy of the picture, since I looked pretty good, but he said no – I was locked back into the sparse room with my fellow detainees, and was told not to speak to any of them since that was against the rules. I just smiled at the goon, and ignored him.
Most of the detainees didn’t want to talk. It was nearly midnight by then, and like prisoners tend to do, they had adapted to their incarceration and were mired in themselves. But Farid was too filled with grief about being robbed of his children to settle into apathy.
“I will never see them again. They will be put with other families and then anything can happen to them. My youngest son is only a baby.”
I remembered reading the day before how 586 children placed in the foster care system in England had somehow disappeared over the past year. Local child welfare officials had no explanation, apparently.
To ride out his pain and the dull hours, Farid taught me some Turkish words that night, starting with “I love you” – it sounded like “selly sev yurum”. He laughed for the first time when he commented how the phrase might come in handy if I ever came to his country, but not if I said it to another man.
“That’s not what I hear” I replied, and he laughed even harder.
We held back the demons together during those slow and weary hours, as the others tried to sleep, and didn’t, and the Malaysian woman sang to her daughter while the Reliance thugs stared at us through a thick pane of glass.
It ended for me at 9 am, when I was taken to a plane that would fly me back to Eindhoven. I said goodbye to Farid and wished him luck.
The man took my hand gently and said “Allah”, pressing his other hand against his chest, and then pointing to my heart.
I recalled then the last words in George Orwell’s book Homage to Catalonia, in which he describes briefly meeting an Italian militia man who like Orwell was fighting Franco and his fascists during the Spanish civil war. They couldn’t speak one another’s language, but they shook hands and departed in different directions for the front lines, and Orwell never saw the Italian man again.
In memory to this unknown stranger who had briefly taken his hand in comradeship, and who had probably died, Orwell wrote a poem to him that concluded,
But the look I saw in your eyes, no power can disinherit.
No bomb that ever burst shatters the crystal spirit.
The night after my deportation, I stood in a crowd of singing and laughing revellers in a Dublin pub, tasting my freedom like a soothing ale, and thinking of where Farid might be, and grieving for him and his children in that part of me that never rests. I never felt unfree in jail; nor did Farid’s own imprisonment and agony stop him from taking my hand in his, and blessing us.
I’ve learned from so many Farids that the more they repress us, the sharper and stronger we get, like a gift. And what happened to me is simply boomeranging back now on the British government and its clumsy attempts to stop our Tribunal this fall.
So be of good cheer, and let that hope propel your body and your life to continue to accompany your words. But never forget Farid, and his children … and that Thing which is trying to imprison all of us through fear, and its other illusions.
February 19-20, 2014 — Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group’s requests
A series of documents uncovered from declassified CIA archives reveal that CIA director Allen Dulles rejected speaking before or issuing a statement to an anti-Zionist group called the American Council for Judaism.
Although Dulles maintained close links between the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Gestapo during World War II, he helped expose “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” as a forgery to The Times of London and New York Times while serving at the U.S. embassy in Istanbul in 1921. Dulles also saw the establishment of a Zionist state in the Middle East as a natural outgrowth of the Balfour Declaration and the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles. During his time in Istanbul, Dulles became a close acquaintance of Chaim Weizmann, the father of modern Zionism.
When it came to issuing a statement for the American Council on Judaism conference in Houston in March 1958, Dulles made his position on the group’s goals clear. In a latter to the group’s executive director Leonard Sussman, Dulles’s executive officer at the CIA wrote, “In view of the nature of Mr. Dulles’ position in the intelligence community, he regrets that he is not able to furnish you with a statement.” In a February 4, 1958 briefing memo, Stanley J. Grogan, Dulles’s assistant, wrote “This is a very delicate matter which involves a religious faith and a political movement, both things to be avoided by the Director.”
What alarmed Dulles and his staff was Sussman’s statement in his letter that “We believe our program takes on particular interest this year, because of a growing recognition on the part of thoughtful people everywhere, of the need for distinguishing between Judaism (a religious faith) and Zionism (a worldwide political movement). This need, first emphasized by us fifteen years ago, is increasingly referred to by informed observers as one of the fundamentals underlying the Arab-Israeli crisis in the Middle East, a crisis threatening the peace of the world.”
In 1960, Dulles’s staff again rejected an invitation by the American Council for judaism for Dulles to issue a statement to the group’s meeting in Denver. The CIA’s executive officer responded to Sussman by stating, “In view of the nature of Mr. Dulles’ official position, he has followed a firm policy of declining participation in non-governmental activities.”
It is noteworthy that Dulles avoided the appearance of speaking to religious and political groups involved with Middle East policy while today, U.S. leaders, including military and intelligence officials, routinely appear before such groups as the American israel Public Affairs Committee and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith.
The American Council on Judaism continues to exist and it remains one of the leading Jewish voices opposed to Zionism. However, American political leaders continue to follow Dulles’s footsteps in eschewing the organization’s events.
February 10-13, 2014 – SPECIAL REPORT. Washington, DC (WMR) Loskarn arrest only a tip of a pedophile network that includes Alexander, other Tennessee politicians
The December 11, 2013 arrest by U.S. Postal Inspectors of Senator Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff Ryan Loskarn on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography in connection with international law enforcement’s Toronto-based Project SPADE, represents only the tip of an iceberg which connects Alexander to a network of Tennessee politicians and businessmen associated with child sex abuse.
Loskarn, who was released against the wishes of federal prosecutor for the District of Columbia Mi Yung Park to the custody of his parents in Sykesville, Maryland for being a suspected suicide risk, was found hanging in the basement of his parents’ home on January 23. Foregoing an autopsy, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Maryland in Baltimore concluded, based on a mere visual inspection of Loskarn’s body, that he had died from self-inflicted hanging.
Since Loskarn’s indictment had previously been postponed until February 10, the last day which prosecutors had to bring formal charges, WMR was informed by legal experts that the delay in indicting Loskarn may have been the result of a pending plea agreement. Loskarn, who was identified as a child porn distributor, would have been in a position to identify actual or intended recipients of child pornographic photographs and videos found by postal inspectors in Loskarn’s possession, had he lived.
Loskarn’s purported “suicide note,” which makes no specific mention of an intention to commit suicide, instead contains an effusive apology to his friends, family, and Senator Alexander. The suicide note has more of a ring of the type of letter drafted by legal counsel to a judge requesting leniency in sentencing, another indication that Loskarn and his attorneys may have been working out a possible plea agreement with Department of Justice prosecutors.
Bright Horizons and Lamar Alexander
In 1998, Massachusetts-based Bright Horizons, a child welfare service company, merged with Corporate Family Solutions, a firm that provided similar services and which was founded in 1987 by Lamar Alexander and Bob Keeshan, who had been known to millions of American children as television’s “Captain Kangaroo.” The merged company, Bright Horizons Family Solutions, was acquired by Mitt Romney’s former firm, Bain Capital, in 2008.
Alexander, the Secretary of Education under George H W Bush, has been tied to a network of Tennessee politicians and businessmen associated with government and private companies, including Bright Horizons and Omni Visions, Inc. of Tennessee, as well as state government social service agencies, such as the Department of Childrens’ Services, accused of endangerment and sexual abuse of foster and mentally challenged children.
Alexander’s close GOP associate, Jim Henry, the CEO of Omni Visions, provides services contracted out by the state of Tennessee to developmentally disabled and troubled children. Henry is a close political ally of Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Haslam, as well as Alexander. Omni Visions has been cited in several legal cases for placing children into the foster homes of convicted pedophiles and endangering children by placing them under the care of abusive staff. There are also documented cases of children dying at the hands of Omni Vision care providers.
From Lamar Alexander’s University of Tennessee to Penn State and Omaha
The network of child care providers linked to Alexander is also linked to the University of Tennessee and Penn State University, the latter the nexus for the pedophilia scandal involving former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and his The Second Mile Foundation. Graham Spanier, the former president of Penn State who was fired over the Sandusky scandal, had previously served as chancellor of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Spanier’s close friend was his predecessor as chancellor, Ronald Roskans, a close friend of and adviser to fallen GOP rising star Lawrence King, who operated the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union of Omaha. King was implicated in a major GOP pedophile scandal, known as the “Franklin Cover-up,” said to have involved former President George H W Bush.
One of the links between the University of Tennessee and Penn State is the Downsbrough family. George Downsbrough, Sr., a former head of HRB Singer, a State College, Pennsylvania-based firm that provided state-of-the-art technology to the National Security Agency, donated $3 million to Penn State. His son, Bruce O. Downsbrough, served beginning in 2003 as chief operating officer of the University of Tennessee Foundation, which serves as the fundraising arm of the state university. Lamar Alexander had previously served as president of the University of Tennessee. Downsbrough was installed in his position despite a prior conviction for child molestation. Downsbrough had previously been an executive of the Colorado University Foundation in Boulder, Colorado. He was later charged and convicted in an 1986 case for molesting two underage boys in Boulder. Perhaps due to the Downsbrough family’s significant political connections, Downsbrough’s law license was merely frozen by the Colorado Supreme Court because it deemed him incapacitated because of an unstated disability.
As part of Project SPADE, Downsbrough was arrested in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2012. The same law enforcement operation resulted in Loskarn’s arrest. Project SPADE involved the arrest worldwide of individuals found in possession of child pornographic materials distributed by Azov Films of Toronto. The common denominator in the arrests as part of the same operation of two seemingly unrelated men in different parts of the country is their professional association with Lamar Alexander.
A confidential source who investigated the Nebraska pedophile ring known as the “Franklin Scandal,” believes that after the exposure of the GOP-based ring, the pedophile network moved from Nebraska to Tennessee and the protection of powerful GOP politicians, including Alexander, Haslam, Henry, and ultimately, the Bush family, which considers Tennessee to be a personal political fiefdom.
This story continues to develop . . .
February 8-10, 2014 — SPECIAL REPORT. The suicide of Ryan Loskarn: A Likely Story
Befitting the small town of Sykesville, Maryland is the fact that its small bookstore on Main Street is called “A Likely Story Bookstore.” That is because the official report on the January 23 suicide by self-hanging of Jesse Ryan Loskarn, the 35-year old former chief of staff to Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander, is indeed a “likely story.”
A special investigation by WMR has discovered that Loskarn’s body was not subjected to an autopsy to make certain his cause of death.
On February 7, Bruce Goldfarb, a spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) for the State of Maryland in Baltimore, told WMR initially that the autopsy report on Jesse Ryan Loskarn had not yet been completed. But when Goldfarb returned our call 45 minutes later, he said there was no autopsy report on Loskarn. When Loskarn’s body was taken to the OCME morgue on January 23, an OCME inspection determined that the cause of death for the decedent was by hanging and that no full autopsy to determine the cause of death was necessary.
The disposal of the body, whether through burial or cremation, is private information, according to Goldfarb. A visit by WMR staff and volunteers to the Haight Funeral Home in Sykesville, which handled the funeral of Loskarn, in Sykesville identified a crematorium in the rear of the building. An employee of the funeral home earlier stated that there was no information on the disposal of Loskarn’s body or remains.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, which investigated Loskarn’s hanging, is not required to release the police report of the incident until 30 days after its final completion.
Sykesville’s “A Likely Story Book Store.” The official report on Ryan Loskarn’s “suicide” is a “likely story.”
The delay in Loskarn’s indictment by the Justice Department indicates that a possible plea agreement with federal prosecutors was in the works. However, with Loskarn’s death, any hope additional information leading prosecutors to others involved in the distribution and receipt of child pornographic materials came to an abrupt end.
Although most residents of the Washington, DC area were well aware of the Loskarn case, residents, including police officials and employees of businesses in Sykesville, feigned ignorance of the high-profile arrest and suicide of a member of a well-known family in the small Maryland town where a number of employees of the National Security Agency live. Maryland Route 32, which goes past NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, extends through Sykesville.
Loskarn was arrested at his Southeast Washington home near the Stadium-Armory Metro station on December 11, 2013 by officers of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service on a probable cause basis for possession and distribution of child pornography, including videos. The children depicted in the hundreds of videos and thousands of photographs seized by authorities were as young as 6 years old. Loskarn was held in custody in Washington and arraigned the following day, December 12, at the U.S. federal courthouse for the District of Columbia.
Loskarn’s parents own CG Print and Promo at 7533 Main Street in Sykesville. CG stands for Consolidated Graphics.
Federal law enforcement agents seized materials and a computer from Loskarn’s residence and searched his computer in Alexander’s Senate office. Alexander removed Loskarn from his payroll on December 11. Loskarn’s indictment was not scheduled until February 10, the last day federal authorities had to bring formal charges against the fast-rising star in Congressional GOP circles. Loskarn had previously served as an aide to Republican Representatives Wally Herger of California and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. He also worked for the House Rules Committee. Before joining Alexander’s staff, Loskarn was the spokesman for the Senate Republican Conference, working for then-Senator Jon Kyle of Arizona.
Alexander told Politico that he was “stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Mi Yung Park argued against Loskarn’s release from jail at a detention hearing at the U.S. District Courthouse. However, Loskarn’s attorney, Pamela Satterfield, who is married to Chief Judge Lee F. Satterfield of the District of Columbia Superior Court, successfully argued that Loskarn was not a suicide risk. Loskarn was then released on his own recognizance with te provision that he wear an electronic ankle bracelet and stay at the home his parents, Chuck and Gay Loskarn, at 6496 Ken Mar Lane in Sykesville. It was at this address where Loskarn’s body was found hanging in the basement on January 23.
Ryan Loskarn was found hanging in the basement of his parents’ home in Sykesville, Maryland. The police report may or may not contain information on whether ground windows leading to the basement were tampered with or whether footprints leading to and from the house were seen in the snow on January 23.
Satterfield’s biography at the law firm of Schertler and Onorato in Washington states that she was “the Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia from 1994 to 2003 where she was deputy chief of the Sex Offense and Domestic Violence Section, prosecuting adult criminal cases involving sexual abuse of adults and children, intra–family offenses, and child maltreatment.”
Federal prosecutor Park, who, in 2013, assumed the sex offense prosecutor’s position once held by Satterfield, argued against Loskarn’s release because she stated that he was considered a suicide risk. However,U.S. Judge John Facciola disagreed with Park and ordered Loskarn’s release to his parents custody.
The Haight Funeral Home, which handled Loskarn’s funeral arrangements, does have crematorium capabilities as seen from the rear facility with the metal smokestack from the roof. The funeral home did not disclose details of Loskarn’s funeral to WMR assistant.
In 2010, Satterfield prosecuted on obscenity charges John “Buttman” Stagliano, the proprietor of Evil Angel.com, a website that specializes in sado-masochistic pornography and distributed its material from a website in Baltimore. The case against Stagliano failed because of Satterfield’s weak legal arguments and overall lack of evidence.
Loskarn was arrested as part of the multinational Project Spade task force, which saw the arrest in November 2013 of several hundred people around the world for possession of child pornography. The operation specifically targeted Azov Films of Toronto, Canada. Azov Films and a related website called BoyJoy.com were run by Brian Way and his mother Sandra Waslow, who maintained an office in Stafford, Virginia, a Washington suburb and the location of a major airport serving private aircraft. Loskarn was under investigation by the Justice Department as a customer of and distributor for, via file sharing networks, of materials produced by the Toronto child porn operation since 2010. The Artek Camp, 50 miles southeast of the Sea of Azov, was the location of a 2009 child rape scandal involving senior members of the government of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. Pro-Western protesters in Ukraine are demanding the release of Tymoshenko from prison where she is serving a sentence for abuse of power and bribery.
