The Franklin Credit Union Sex Scandal
Last night I watched the documentary, Conspiracy of Silence, available here via this twisty menu route:
If that’s too small to see: Mystery -> Conspiracy Theories -> A-M -> Conspiracy of Silence
I found it … difficult to believe. I also find the alleged history behind it difficult to believe:
In 1993 the Yorkshire Television Group sent a small team to Omaha, Nebraska to investigate what was left of the Franklin Case. After spending nearly a year in Omaha collecting footage and interviews, the crew felt they had a documentary that may even win awards. With nearly half a million dollars spent on production, Conspiracy of Silence was set to shatter the silence that had shrouded the case.
In May of 1994 when the ground-breaking documentary was scheduled to air thousands tuned in to find that once again the powers that be had silenced the Franklin story. Later DeCamp was told that cable companies had struck a deal with Congress to not impede on their programming if they pulled Conspiracy of Silence. An unknown purchaser bought all of the copies of the program, and reimbursed Yorkshire Television the production costs. But not all copies were destroyed. In 1995 John DeCamp received a cutting room copy of the documentary.
The documentary copy online is indeed a workprint copy, with various missing sections filled in by a title card and the Yorkshire Television logo (yes, I do know the logo!):
That’s a salient detail in its favor.
And yet the documentary ends abruptly, unfinished. It lacks titles and credits. On-screen titles that identify people seem to have been added to the print later on by another party.
Of course, I hate a mystery. So I’ve emailed Yorkshire Television about this. I hope I will get a reply. Since they probably get hundreds of inquiries per day about many other subjects, this will probably take some time.
Today I read The Franklin Case In-Depth Report. It provided additional details that weren’t mentioned in the aborted(?) documentary. (It’s marred by several strange typos; but I didn’t let that stop me.)
I then went on to read The Gunderson Report: Child Sexual Abuse. It is long long long. And if I thought the previous account of the Franklin case was shocking, this one is downright incredible. It links the Franklin case to a worldwide Satanic ritual cult, CIA mind-control experiments, Iran-Contra, and global trafficking in children for sexual purposes. As if the original Franklin case wasn’t shocking enough, this report states that it’s only the tip of a shadow trade none of us could ever believe exist.
For more on the alleged CIA connection and connection to Franklin, turn to this story about Craig Spence: Stirring the White House honey pot. For confirmation of Craig Spence being a mystery, see this Time magazine piece: Washington’s Man from Nowhere.
The New York Times coverage of the Franklin story:
Which seems to effectively sweep it under the rug. Except.
America’s Most Wanted did a story about a famous child disappearance: John “Johnny” David Gosch. It ties the disappearance of this kid back into Franklin (and therefore back into Spence in D.C.) and back into a clandestine and highly-organized pedophilia ring of unimaginable proportions.
Here at Archive for the ‘Franklin Credit Union’ Category at Conservative Babylon blog, even more names are implicated in the scandal, further enhancing its credibility. Or incredibility, because even the writer there pauses to note:
Hang in there. It gets weirder.
And later on asks:
Is your head spinning yet?
But the very idea of predatory homosexual pedophiles in high places isn’t exactly new. Here’s a reminder about the case of Congressman Mark Foley.
How much of any of this do I believe? I just don’t know.
Seven years ago, if you had told me it would be possible to simply pick people off the street, stick them in a jet, and fly them off to different countries, defying all laws against that, I would have laughed at you.
Now our government has been doing Extraordinary Rendition.
It really, really makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
