Dr. Phil Interview Exposes Global Elite Pedophiles
Written by  Alex Newman
Thursday, 30 March 2017
In what may be the most explosive episode of his high-profile television career, psychologist and TV show host Dr. Phil exposed the little-known phenomenon of human trafficking of sex slaves among the elite echelons of society. According to Dr. Phil, the victim, and reliable sources who corroborated her story, the girl — now a young woman, perhaps in her mid-20s — was flown around the world on private jets and forced to have sexual relations and engage in unspeakable acts with wealthy businessmen, political leaders, and other establishment figures. Much of what was described on the the Dr. Phil Show sounded satanic, analysts said.
Experts who have studied the phenomenon, though, say this story is just the tip of a gigantic iceberg that stretches across the globe and is especially concentrated in power centers such as Washington, D.C., New York City, and London. With President Donald Trump vowing to crack down hard on human trafficking and sex slavery, victims and their advocates hope the scourge can be brought into the open — and that the perpetrators can be brought to justice, regardless of their position in society. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly 
committed to doing everything within his power to bring down high-level pedophiles and human-traffickers.
The victim who appeared on Dr. Phil's enormously popular show, identified only as “Kendall,” said on the program that she was sold to her “owner” by her parents at birth. “I was born into the world of sex trafficking,” she said on the program, which aired nationwide on March 21 and was reportedly seen by millions of Americans. “I was forced to have sex with clients. One of my first memories was to think it was normal for men to be fondling babies.” In one case, she was even forced by her “owner” to kill a baby, she said. In other instances, she was forced to rape children as young as five-years old. 
Her entire existence revolved around the demands of her “owner” and the clients this criminal would pimp her out to. “My whole life I would travel all over the world, and would go to some of the biggest events to meet clients and have sex with them,” the victim explained. “They were all extremely rich and prominent members of society. Sometimes they would just want to have sex with me, and sometimes they would make me have sex with different people.” When her “owner” was not around, she was supervised by “watchers.”
Among those who raped her, she said, were high-ranking law-enforcement officials, major sports figures, and even top U.S. politicians. Oftentimes, she was taken to extravagant mansions where the “clients” would rape, torture, and abuse her and other captive children. Many of the “clients” were “pillars of the community,” Kendall continued, adding that some even owned private islands or large properties where they could rape and “hunt” their victims with impunity.
Indeed, one well-known pedophile with a private island, Bill Clinton's friend and registered sex offender Jeffery Epstein, had a private plane known as the “Lolita Express” that would fly high-level politicians and businessmen to his so-called “Orgy Island” or “Sex Slave Island” in the U.S. Virgin Islands. There, according to reports and alleged victims, trafficked girls as young as 12 would be forced to have sexual relations with Epstein and his friends — billionaires, politicians, royalty, and others. Bill Clinton rode on the Lolita Express at least 26 times, according to flight logs cited by Fox News, and often ditched his Secret Service protection before hopping on board.   
Lest Ms. Kendall's claims be dismissed, Dr. Phil emphasized that her story had been corroborated prior to putting her on the show. “I can tell you that a very reliable source has confirmed to us that Kendall has in fact been trafficked, raped, molested, and severely abused by a very large, very dangerous organization,” Dr. Phil said. Indeed, as The New American and numerous other media  sources have documented, her story is hardly unique, and there does appear to be a pattern linking many “elites” to unspeakable crimes perpetrated in the shadows.
Those wealthy and powerful “clients” were responsible for ghastly crimes against Kendall, stretching back to her early childhood and her earliest memories. “The clients were often physically abusive,” she explained, adding that she was often drugged by her captors as well. “Clients were even allowed to smother me with a pillow or plastic bag while having sex with me. But they were never allowed to leave marks or bruises on my face, because I always had to look pretty.”
Kendall's “owner” told her she was “made for” the abuse, and that her birth parents had created her for that purpose. “It's the only life I've ever known,” she says in the interview, adding that she believed her own three children were also trafficked into slavery and that children would be raped by adults beginning when they were just infants. “All of this was completely normal to me, and I never thought seriously about leaving.... Since I left, it's been so hard.” Her “owner” had rich and powerful friends all over the world, she added.
Asked how old she was when she was first raped, Kendall said “it was before I could talk.” “I was used to it by the time I was 2,” she added, noting that she does not even know her actual age today because she was a sex slave from the time of her earliest memories. In the interview, she explains that she could even tell the difference between children who were born into the slavery and those who were kidnapped. “The girls who weren't born into it, they had a harder time,” Kendall said. “They were always kept tied up or in cages, and they cried a lot.”     
“The man who owns me constantly manipulated me and did horrible things to me,” she said. “He would make me be a dog, he made me eat feces, I was kept in a cage — sometimes he would electrocute me as punishment.” In fact, the monstrous “owner” would give her commands like a dog, “like come, or sit, or stay — I would have to obey them or I'd get in trouble.” Sometimes she would have to “be a dog for days,” she added.  Her punishment for not “behaving” was that her owner would “have really rough sex with me, or take a knife and cut me.” He would also wet her and force her to be in the cold, or pretend to drown her in the bath tub.  
In perhaps one of the most grotesque elements of the story, Kendall's “owner” even brainwashed her into believing her torture and misery were divinely ordained — suggesting that the false “god” of her abusers may be what Christians, Jews, and others recognize as demonic. “He said that all of this was happening because it was god's will, because god made me for this,” Kendall recounted. Her abusers and rapists also told her “this was the best thing for me,” she said, adding that she had believed them and felt guilty for not appreciating the horrors inflicted on her.
The “owner,” whom Kendall said she witnessed murdering some 20 to 25 people, also threatened her to keep silent, telling her, “if I told anybody about what was going on, that nobody would believe me,” she explained. “I 100 percent believed him. I still believe him.” At one point, the “owner” offered her one chance to leave him in the only way he said was possible: shooting herself in the head. She tried, but the gun did not go off, and then she was punished severely, she told Dr. Phil.      
Of course, the networks of establishment pedophiles and perverts alluded to throughout Dr. Phil's explosive program last week has become increasingly well known in the age of the Internet. 1990s documentary called Conspiracy of Silence, available for free online today, also suggests the problem in the United States has existed for generations and reaches into the highest levels of government and power. And more than a few members of the political, business, and media elite have already been exposed.
Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, for example, was busted last year for attempting to cover up his sexual molestation of underage boys. Unfortunately for the cause of justice, the statute of limitations had already expired on his sexual crimes. But he did plead guilty to charges relating to the cover-up. Illustrating his complete lack of morals or compassion, though, Hastert was recently in the news again for trying to recover the “hush” money he paid to one of his victims because the victim had come forward. The judge in the case called him a “serial child molester.” As The New American reported last year, though, Hastert is just the tip of the iceberg.   
Before Hastert, late BBC celebrity Jimmy Savile was exposed as a pedophile monster who sexually abused hundreds of children over a period of decades — sometimes as part of a satanic ring, according to victims cited in news reports. In 2013, after that scandal exploded, British police announced that their investigation into child sex abuse was widening to include members of the British Parliament as well. However, even the police themselves came under fire for declining on multiple occasions to file charges against Savile.
More than a few advocates suggested corrupt forces within the police department were helping to protect the pedophile ring and its high-ranking, influential members. British Parliamentarian Tom Watson with the Labor Party also spoke of the evidence file used in the 1990s to convict pedophile Peter Righton — a former consultant at the National Children’s Bureau and lecturer for the National Institute for Social Work in London — and said it should be re-examined. The MP said it contained “clear intelligence of a widespread pedophile ring” in the U.K. operating at the highest levels of power.
“One of its members boasts of his links to a senior aide of a former prime minister,” Watson explained on the floor of Parliament. “The leads were not followed up, but if the file still exists I want to ensure that the Metropolitan Police secure the evidence, re-examine it and investigate clear intelligence suggesting a powerful pedophile network linked to Parliament and [government headquarters at Downing Street] Number 10.”
In America, more than a few Clinton associates have also been ensnared in pedophilia-related scandals. As described above, Clinton buddy and known pedophile Epstein is infamous for his proclivities. “Bill Clinton … associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” explained Conchita Sarnoff with the non-profit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking and the author of a book on Epstein's case called TrafficKing. “Why would a former president associate with a man like that?”
Meanwhile, e-mails between failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her top aide at the time, Cheryl Mills, deal with Laura Silsby, who was arrested and charged with child abduction and child trafficking in Haiti after the 2010 hurricane there. Silsby and nine others posing as “missionaries” for a phony orphanage were busted by authorities trying to smuggle a busload of 33 Haitian children off the island. And far from being orphans, once Silsby was caught, the parents of the children accused her of lying. Thanks to intervention by Bill and Hillary Clinton, though, Silsby was allowed to leave Haiti with “time served.”  
As The New American's senior editor William F. Jasper reported in a November article about the scandals and horrors revealed in Clinton's e-mails, including tales of bizarre occult rituals, multiple analysts have concluded that Silsby was kidnapping the Haitian children to be sold to child sex rings. “The evidence we have seen thus far does not prove that claim, but neither is it a far-fetched supposition, considering the sordid sexual swamp that many of the high and mighty are mired in, and considering the Epstein-Clinton-Podesta revelations that are pouring out,” Jasper reported. “At the very least, it must be seriously investigated, in light of the evidence available and the global crisis in child sex trafficking.”
A recent “Reality Check” news segment by journalist Ben Swann on the so-called “Pizzagate” scandal, which establishment media outlets have scrambled to declare “fake news,” also links a number of high-profile Clinton associates to pedophilia and human trafficking. After a month-long investigation, Swann — one of the most reputable journalists with a platform on an establishment media outlet — suggests that there is extremely troubling evidence that should be properly investigated. The video report was perhaps the best summary so far of the “Pizzagate” theories.    
In addition to the millions of viewers who watched his show, Dr. Phil's program highlighting the horrifying crimes of human trafficking and sexual slavery made headlines across America in the alternative media around the world. In the United Kingdom, some of that nation's leading newspapers have covered the story. And after the story broke, the word spread across the Internet like wildfire, with countless blogs, forums, and alternative media outlets celebrating the breakthrough. 
Trump has also taken a hard line. “I want to make clear that my administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking,” he said after a recent listening session on domestic and international human trafficking at the White House. “I am prepared to bring the full weight our government at the federal level and the highest levels in order to solve this horrific problem. It's getting worse, and it's happening in the United States, in addition to the rest of the world.... Solving the human-trafficking epidemic is a priority for my administration.”
Trump's hard line has been cited by more than a few commentators as one of the reasons why the establishment is freaking out so hysterically over Trump and his administration. Whether more members of the establishment will be ensnared in the horrifying scandals in the months and years to come, though, remains to be seen.

Claims that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile are '120 per cent genuine', police chief claims

The police chief investigating  allegations that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile believes the accounts are "120 per cent genuine".
Wiltshire Police has been carrying out a large-scale investigation into claims made about the late former prime minister and has identified more than 30 alleged victims.
A report, which is expected to be published in June, will allegedly detail how the claims are "totally convincing" and will vindicate Chief Constable Mike Veale's decision to persist with the £700,000 investigation.
Operation Conifer was launched in 2015 - ten years after Sir Edward's death - and has had a team of more than 20 police officers and staff looking into allegations dating back 50-years.
But supporters of the late Tory leader have dismissed the investigation as a "witch-hunt", insisting that Sir Edward did not have the opportunity or inclination to abuse children.
But according to The Mail on Sunday, a source has said there are a large number of allegations which are very similar and come from people who were not known to one another.
The source said: "What stands out is that the people giving these accounts are not connected but the stories and the details dovetail. It contains disturbing stuff. Investigators have been shocked by what they have learned."
One of the former prime minister's former armed protection officers had previously dismissed the idea that Sir Edward could have abused youngsters because he was watched around the clock by police.
The allegations were also said to be ludicrous because Sir Edward did not have a car and used a driver to get to wherever he went.
But police have now obtained photographic evidence, suggesting that Sir Edward did have a car and did occasionally drive unaccompanied.
Throughout the investigation, Mr Veale has defended the force's actions against critics who have said it is a "witch-hunt", adding: "I will not be buckling under pressure to not investigate or to conclude the investigation prematurely."
Operation Conifer launched a television appeal asking for "victims" of Sir Edward to come forward.
Previously, Peter Cracknell, a firearms specialist who spent 29 years with Wiltshire Police, has said Sir Edward would not have had the opportunity to abuse youngsters because security around him was so tight.
Mr Cracknell, who worked at Sir Edward's home, Arundells, in Salisbury between 1985 and 1990, said the long-running police investigation into claims he was a  paedophile who took part in satanic abuse was "ludicrous".
‘Serial child molester’: Former U.S. Speaker of the House gets 15 months prison over hush money to abused boys

CHICAGO — Dennis Hastert, the Republican who for eight years presided over the House and was second in the line of succession to the presidency, was sentenced Wednesday to more than a year in prison in the hush-money case that included accusations he sexually abused teenagers while coaching high school wrestling.
Judge Thomas M. Durkin also ordered Hastert to undergo sex-offender treatment, spend two years on supervised release after 15 months behind bars and pay a $250,000 fine to a crime victims’ fund.
In explaining his punishment, the judge called Hastert a “serial child molester” and described as “unconscionable” his attempt to accuse one of the victims of extortion.
Hastert becomes one of the highest-ranking politicians in American history to be sentenced to prison. He pleaded guilty last fall to violating banking law as he sought to pay $3.5 million to someone referred to in court papers only as Individual A to keep the sex abuse secret.
Earlier in the hearing, a former athlete who said he was molested by Hastert decades ago told the courtroom that he was “devastated” by the abuse.
The man, now in his 50s, said Hastert abused him while they were alone in a locker room. He struggled to hold back tears as he described the incident in detail. In the years since, he said, he sought professional help and had trouble sleeping. He said the memory still causes him pain.
He said he trusted and looked up to Hastert.
In his own statement, Hastert admitted that he “mistreated” some of his athletes and said he was “deeply ashamed.”
“I am sorry to those I hurt and misled,” he said. 
“What I did was wrong and I regret it.”
When the judge asked whether he sexually abused one wrestler specifically, Hastert said yes.
Moments before the man took the stand, a woman who says her brother was sexually abused by Hastert told the courtroom that her sibling felt “betrayed, ashamed and embarrassed.”
(Right: In this Oct. 25, 1975 photo, Yorkville, Ill., high school wrestling coach and former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, top left, at a wrestling clinic. He was a longtime schoolteacher.)
Jolene Burdge said Hastert abused her brother, Stephen Reinboldt, throughout his years at Yorkville High School, where Hastert was a history teacher and coach from 1965 to 1981.
Reinboldt died of AIDS in 1995.
His sister turned toward Hastert and said, “Don’t be a coward … tell the truth.”
She also said, “I hope I have been your worst nightmare.”
Authorities said Hastert abused at least four students throughout his years at the school about 45 miles southwest of Chicago.
The 74-year-old, who was pushed into the courthouse in Chicago in a wheelchair, agreed to a plea deal that suggested anything from probation to a maximum of six months behind bars.
But after prosecutors lifted a veil of secrecy from the case, the judge made comments suggesting he might impose a longer sentence, potentially putting Hastert behind bars for years, because of the abuse allegations.
Defence attorneys were seeking probation on the grounds that Hastert has already paid a high price in disgrace. They also cited his health, saying a blood infection nearly killed him in November and that a stroke has limited his mobility.
The lead prosecutor said he wishes Hastert could have been charged with the abuse he was trying to cover up.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Block called Hastert’s conduct “horrendous.” But because of the statute of limitations, he could only be charged with a financial crime related to the payments he was making to one of at least four victims of sexual abuse.
Block said the sentence should take into account that Hastert “continues to deny what should now be obvious to everyone,” that the payments were to conceal sexual abuse.

Defence attorney Thomas Green said he “acknowledges and respects” the pain of the man who described being molested. He urged the judge to take into consideration the “entire arc” of Hastert’s life, asserting that he reshaped his life as a public servant during his political career.
“Decades of not just political achievement but acts of goodness and charity have been erased, a lot of it even physically as his name has been removed from public places and his portrait at the Capitol put into storage,” Green said.
Some letters of support were withdrawn because the writers did not want to be identified, Green said, an example of Hastert’s deepening isolation.
The maximum sentence available was five years in prison.
Until recently, it was hard to gauge what Durkin might be thinking. But at a recent hearing, he let his dismay show for the first time.
He singled out how Hastert in a 2015 interview with federal agents sought to deflect blame by falsely accusing Individual A of extorting him with a bogus sex-abuse claim.
On Wednesday, the judge returned to that example, saying that Hastert was willing to send an innocent man to prison to avoid getting caught.
Because of Hastert’s false accusations, “the full weight of the federal government’s resources” was thrown at Individual A, the judge said.
Earlier this month, prosecutors went into graphic detail about the sex-abuse allegations for the first time, even describing how Hastert would sit in a recliner chair in the locker room with a direct view of the showers.
The victims, prosecutors said, were boys between 14 and 17. Hastert was in his 20s and 30s.
Prince Andrew’s alleged role in a paedophile ring shocked the world, but what’s next for the Duke?
By Charles Miranda in London
News Corp Australia Network
February 26, 2015
As Prince Andrew, Duke of York, fifth in line to the throne enjoyed the slopes about his rented $42,000 a week luxury Swiss ski chalet this week, he was oblivious that in an American court his life was unravelling quicker than he was slaloming.
In the US District Court in West Palm Beach, 31-year-old mother of three Virginia Roberts was filing a motion as part of a broader lawsuit against prosecutors who accepted a plea bargain from billionaire Wall Street banker Jeffrey Epstein on child sex allegations.
The case had been going on since 2008 when the Brooklyn banker, who counted former President Bill Clinton among his close mates, was convicted on the lesser charge of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.
Police in Fort Lauderdale and the FBI were stunned Epstein’s lawyers were able to force prosecutors to accept the lesser charge in exchange for an 18-month jail term, later reduced to 13 months, when they apparently had damning evidence the financier was effectively keeping at least 17 underage sex slaves to service the needs of him and his rich and famous friends around the world and filming their exploits should those friends ever need to be reminded of who their friends were.
Lawyer for some of the women Brad Edwards had filed many motions over the past six or more years on behalf of his clients protesting the plea move, but on New Year’s Day he filed a 13-page motion, in which Roberts was only identified as “Jane Doe 3”, and attached “Document 279” in which she provided titillating details about how as a 17-year-old she had been forced to have sex with the Prince and others at various locations around the world in exchange for a life of riches, private jets and luxury holidays.
“Give the prince whatever he demands,” she alleged she was ordered by Epstein as she was flown to London to allegedly have toe-sucking bath time then sex with him, then later to New York for sex on a massage table then the Virgin Islands for him to watch girl-on-girl action with Russian models before she again had to sexual pleasure him on his leather armchair.
To suggest the motion was dynamite back in London would be an understatement with Buckingham Palace issuing a flurry of denials and going into full damage control not seen since the scandals of Squidgygate involving Princess of Wales Lady Diana more than 20 years ago or the Camillagate Tapes involving her then husband Prince Charles and his special consort now wife Camilla.News_Image_File: In overdrive ...

The palace thought their first flat denial, on behalf of the Queen’s second son Prince Andrew, that he had sexual relations with the then underage Roberts was enough, but they were clearly wrong. Two days later he was rushing down from the slopes of Verbier village in south-western Switzerland to answers questions from his family, meet with his legal and other advisers over the sordid claims that have again brought the House of Windsor into controversy.
The crisis is unlikely to be quelled with Ms Roberts now making deals with the British tabloids, speaking to US network giants about movie deals and also is finalising a book deal on her time as a “teenage sex slave” to the rich, privileged and famous. And make no mistake — Prince Andrew is not the only name to appear with some of the world’s richest socialites, politicians and personalities now being rightly or wrongly dragged into the sex storm that ultimately could see some of them — Prince Andrew included — forced to deny the allegations in that Florida Court.News_Image_File: More publicity ... Virginia Roberts is already talking movie and book deals.
No stranger to controversy, Prince Andrew’s friendships and associations from his role as international playboy and UK’s special envoy for trade and investment has long raised eyebrows.
In December 2010, the prince was photographed by the now defunct News of The World newspaper walking through Central Park with his friend Epstein (under the headline “Prince Andy and the Paedo”) after the banker was released from jail.
It was a damaging image and brought into question, not for the first time, his choice of friends.
By March the following year and after a photograph emerged of the prince with his arm around the bare midriff waist of Ms Roberts, and admissions he had received a massage at Epstein’s Florida mansion 10 years earlier raised further question marks over his suitability to represent the nation on trade and investment issues particularly in conservative countries in the Middle East.
At that time the 27-year-old married Ms Roberts was speaking — albeit anonymously and being referred to as an Australian masseuse since she had married an Australian martial arts expert 10 days after they met in Thailand in 2002 and were living in Sydney for about 10 years — about dancing at a nightclub with the prince. There was no suggestion it was anything more than a dance, albeit a bad one with the prince grinning cheesily and grabbing her hips as he jumped about.News_Image_File: Global headlines ... Prince Andrew pictured with convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein.
She detailed how as a 15-year-old she was working as a changing room assistant in the spa of Donald Trump’s Florida country club, where her father worked in maintenance, when she was introduced to Epstein’s friend Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of press baron, British MP and all-round fraudster Robert Maxwell. It was Ghislaine who allegedly promised the wide-eyed girl she knew a powerful man looking for a travelling masseuse and she could be trained as one.
Roberts later met Epstein, lying naked on a massage table at his Palm Beach mansion, and was asked by him about her background to which she said she was a runaway and no longer a virgin. Another apparent masseuse at their side took her clothes off and told Roberts to do the same; Roberts then had sex with Epstein while the other woman fondled her. Roberts was paid US$200 in cash and told to come back the next day. She said she felt under pressure to have sex on that encounter but would allegedly spend the next four years servicing Epstein’s sexual demands for himself and for others. She claims after two years she was then “given” by Epstein to his rich friends and associates including heads of state, a world famous scientist, politicians and rich socialites.

In 2001 she accompanied Epstein on a six-week tour of Europe and North Africa starting with a stay at Ghislaine Maxwell’s home in London’s up-market Knightsbridge. One morning Maxwell allegedly told Roberts “We’ve got to go shopping. You need a dress as you’re going to dance with a prince tonight”. She was bought a AUD$10,000 Burberry bag, a designer dress, perfume and make up.
That afternoon the prince turned up at Maxwell’s apartment, where Epstein was also staying, and was introduced to Roberts. Shortly after Maxwell played a guessing game and asked the royal how old he thought Roberts was and he correctly guessed 17. They all laughed then joked.
“Ghislaine made a joke that I was getting too old for Jeffrey, she said ‘he’ll soon have to trade you in,” Roberts later recounted. It was at that meeting the damning photograph of Prince Andrew with his arm around Roberts was taken, “I wanted something to show my mom”, Roberts recounted. The four then went out to dinner and later to the nightclub Tramp where she danced with her “sweaty” then 41-year-old prince.
In 2011 Roberts told the British press the evening ended with the dance but that Maxwell the next morning told her “you did well, he had fun".
Fast forward to this week and the woman gave a little more detail about her encounter and how she had allegedly become a “gift” from Epstein to the prince later that night and Epstein had paid her US$10,000. “It was made clear to me that my job was to do whatever pleased him.”
She said the pair took a bath together. “He started licking my toes, between my toes, the arches of my feet and then we went into the bedroom and he proceeded to make love to me so to speak. It wasn’t like rape but it wasn’t like love either. It was more like ‘I’m getting my business done’.”.
She said the prince never paid her, that was for Epstein to take care of the finances.
Around Easter of the same year she again met the prince when she was called up and told to go from Florida to New York to meet someone special at Epstein’s mansion. She says she was taken to the library and there was the prince sitting in an armchair next to a desk with a lot of photographs of semi nude young girls including herself.
He had a 21-year-old woman sitting on his knee but Maxwell escorted Roberts over and sat her on his other knee.
She was then allegedly told: “You should take him upstairs for a massage” and it was made clear she was there to have sex with him, an allegation the palace had flatly denied.
“I took him upstairs to the ‘Dungeon’,” Roberts told the British press this week. “He undressed and lay face down on the table. I started with his feet then his calves the way Jeffrey liked it.”
They met again a third time on Epstein’s Virgin Island mansion. News_Image_File: Luxury island ... Jeffrey Epstein's private Virgin Island mansion. Picture: Lawton/Splash NewsShe flew there with Epstein and Maxwell, his semipermanent companion, and hooked up with seven non-English speaking Russian models for a photo shoot. Roberts and the models were posed topless in provocative positions. She later met up with he prince again who with was with Epstein. Epstein allegedly told her to undress and kiss and touch the other girls in an orgy. “Then I stripped and I performed a sex act on Andrew,” she claims, a scenario the palace has vehemently rejected.
During the Epstein investigation and ultimate trial, court papers dated 2007 and titled “statement of undisputed facts” alleged he made attempts to cover up the scandal alleging tracking down some of his accusers and promising to look after them if they did not speak with the FBI. For those who refused he allegedly suggested “bad things” could happen. The allegation is contained in 13,000 papers of evidence US prosecutors have locked away. Epstein’s lawyers secured a deal with prosecutors that anyone else involved in his love trysts and orgies, including presumably the prince, would be given immunity from prosecution. The deal alone has been locked in secrecy as a condition of the plea. Epstein, according to documents lodged in court, actually bankrolled the legal fees of 10 potential witnesses who refused to answer questions.
News_Image_File: Countless women pleaded the ‘fifth” when asked under oath about sexual relations with Prince Andrew. Picture: Chris Jackson/Getty Images.
These supposedly include other girls who were directly question about whether they had ever had sexual liaisons with the prince and pleaded the fifth amendment of legal silence on the grounds of self incrimination. In 2010 one former model Adriana Ross who worked for Epstein was asked whether she had seen evidence of royal underage sex to which she replied “I refuse to answer”. She was one of four named “co-conspirators” with another Yugoslav model Nadia Marcinkova, Epstein’s alleged “live in sex slave” who when asked if she had been made to perform a sex act on the prince replied simply “fifth”, as did Epstein former PA Sarah Kellen who has been accused in court of introducing underage girls to Epstein. When asked about Prince Andrew and allegation of child sex she replied: “On the instruction of my lawyer I must invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege.”
Locked away documents also detail apparently, in more than 500 pages of evidence, “letters of recommendation” apparently written by high flying friends of Epstein arguing his good character. The claim by Roberts lawyers was that he used his “significant social and political influence” to exert pressure for a plea deal. The palace issued a statement stating the prince would never interfere in a legal matter.
Epstein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz who himself has been accused in the legal motion by Roberts of having sex with underage girls her, has sued Roberts and the lawyers who made all the “outrageous claims” on her behalf.
The prince returned to Windsor and briefed the Queen on his version of events. The palace has issued a total of three unprecedented public statements formally denying the under-age sex claims and calls now to the palace get referred to those three statements. Palace courtiers say there is nothing more to say but without Prince Andrew speaking himself the controversy is likely to linger. His wife Sarah Ferguson has spoken for him about how wonderful he is; her credibility however is in question after it was revealed Epstein lent her $30,000 to pay off a personal debt.
Scotland Yard has also come out with a statement saying it would investigate any underage sex claim if a formal complaint was made by Roberts, with a reminder that no one was immune from the law, as palace lawyers Harbottle & Lewis wrote to British media urging caution about writing Roberts’ claims and reminding outlets of the palace’s three denials. It is unlikely the prince would ever sue for defamation which would give the claims and other lurid details of partying at Epstein’s invitation in Thailand and elsewhere oxygen.

It’s a tough position for the prince but until he speaks publicly more claims will no doubt emerge and further tarnish his reputation, which many in England would argue was already beyond saving, but also that of his family. At one point it was claimed the Queen had met Roberts but Roberts’ father Sky Roberts later said he was mistaken.
How BBC star Jimmy Savile allegedly got away with abusing 500 children and sex with dead bodies
By Terrence McCoy
June 27, 2014

Jimmy Savile was never a handsome man. His face, even in his early days at the BBC, was all sharp edges — the hook of his nose, the jagged-tooth grin, the boggle-eyed look of eccentricity, humor and derangement. At times, he seemed almost make believe. He had platinum hair. A fat cigar perpetually hung out of his mouth. He seemed to communicate exclusively in catchphrases: “now then, now then,” “howz about that then,” “as it ‘appens.” The kids just loved his gags.
There was always something off about Savile, who hosted the BBC’s “Jim’ll Fix it,” palled around with the royal family, reportedly spent holidays with the Thatchers and was knighted not only by Queen Elizabeth but by Pope John Paul II. But most forgave his idiosyncratic nature. He was, after all, a great man. He raised $5.2 million for a hospital in Leeds, one of the United Kingdom’s largest. He volunteered countless hours as a hospital aide, busing patients to and fro. He helped scores of young doctors get their starts.
Sure, there were rumors. Whispers that he wasn’t everything he seemed. Murmurs he was really a sexual predator and had abused dozens of children. But they never stuck. Not Jimmy Savile, people told themselves — not “fix-it Jim.”
On October 29, 2011, Savile died at his home in Leeds. “Most of all, I remember him as just a totally flamboyant, over-the-top, larger-than-life character,” radio presenter David Hamilton told the Guardian, praising his “tireless” philanthropy. “And as he was on the air, he was just the same off.”
But he wasn’t. And just how wrong that assessment was emerged this month.
Savile, according to a U.K. National Health Service investigation released Thursday, was a prolific pedophile. The health service investigation only confirmed behavior described in several earlier probes since his death. In all, Savile is believed to have abused at least 500 girls and boys, some as young as two, most between 13 and 15, as well as countless adults ranging up to 75 years old. With unfettered access to Leeds General Infirmary, the health service report said, he raped and fondled boys, girls, men and women in offices and corridors. He also allegedly committed sexual acts on dead bodies, and even told several hospital workers that he made jewelry out of one man’s glass eyeball.
As shocking as the findings are, even more shocking is the fact that Savile got away with it for so long. That realization has “shaken our country to the core,” U.K. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Thursday. For decades, while Savile hosted show after show and glad-handed, the abuse went on. Numerous columns 
have asked: How? How did no one know? Why wasn’t he stopped?
The answer, according to the National HealthService
psychologists, and academics, lies in the pervasive and intimidating power of celebrity. He was so well-known that even when his behavior struck some as strange or lewd, he was allowed to carry on because he was Jimmy Savile and was raising millions. “I don’t know if he were a law unto himself, but because of his celebrity status, he sort of basically had the run of the place,” one hospital worker 
told investigators.
One woman recalled Savile sexually assaulting her when she was 16. Even decades later, she told investigators, she remembered it vividly. After he was done, he turned an imperial eye to her. “You won’t talk about this,” he told her. “Nobody will believe you. I’m Jimmy Savile. I can get you.” The girl said she told her mother, but she didn’t believe her. The girl never talked about it again.
Savile, wrote Ian Robertson, a professor of psychology at Trinity College Dublin, had a “super-sense of being able to sniff out the most psychologically vulnerable who would either not tell or not be believed. … Here we have an associate of the highest echelons of British society. This halo likely acted like a protective force-field around him, not because of any collusion by any of the elite necessarily, but simply because of his repeated association with their own super-status.”
In 1960, when Savile was 34, he arrived at Leeds General Infirmary to begin a relationship with the sprawling institution that would last five decades. At first, he mostly dealt in fundraising. But in 1968, he had an unusual request: He wanted to become a “porter” and bus patients. “When Mr. Savile offered his services as a voluntary porter I was a little concerned about the press implications and how he would fit into a busy teaching hospital,” a hospital director later said. “My concern was wholly unfounded and he has done an extremely good job and is accepted by all sections of the staff.”
Soon Savile, who described himself as the “chief cheerer-upper” and wore and a “distinctive white coat” embroidered with his name, ingratiated himself. He assumed a greater collection of privileges that included his own parking space and nearly limitless range of the facilities. He frequently parked his camper van overnight at the hospital, and workers would dispatch 8 a.m. coffee to its door.

That power dampened some suspicion — but not all. When one woman “went to shake his hand … he took my hand and kissed me on the back of my hand then sort of multiple kisses going up my arm towards my shoulder,” she told investigators. “I didn’t feel confident enough to say, particularly because he was famous, to say, ‘That’s inappropriate.'”
Then, in a flash, Savile would revert back to his television persona.
His behavior — mania, dissociation with his victims, split personalities — evinces something psychologists call a “dark triad of personality characteristics.” Psychologist Oliver James wrote that Savile was likely afflicted with psychopathy, Machiavellianism and narcissism. “Such people often are able to slide effortlessly between personas. … Savile must have had a fantastical inner life — grandiose, wild and desperate.”
But for the most part, that’s where it stayed: on the inside. And that obfuscation is what perhaps perpetuated the reported abuse.
In a New Yorker piece on Jerry Sandusky, entitled “In Plain View: How child molesters get away with it,” Malcolm Gladwell said the most prolific pedophile is rarely the “disheveled old man baldly offering candy to preschoolers.” Rather, pedophiles can be agreeable members of the community. “People didn’t believe that [he] was a pedophile because people liked [him] — without realizing that [he] was in the business of being likeable.”
And few in Britain during the 1970s and 1980s were more liked than Jimmy Savile.
Catholic Church sex abuse scandals around the world
BBC News
14 September 2010
The Catholic Church has faced a raft of allegations of child sex abuse by priests and an inadequate response by bishops. Here is a round-up of some of those events:
The bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, resigned in April 2010 after admitting that he had sexually abused a boy for years when he was a priest and after being made a bishop.
The scandal drew in the former head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Cardinal Godfried Danneels, who had advised the victim in April not to go public with his story until Vangheluwe had retired in 2011.
After the Vangheluwe case came to light, a commission set up to investigate the extent of abuse in the Belgian Church received a flood of calls.
Police controversially raided the commission and Church offices, suspecting some evidence was being covered up - but this move was ruled illegal by a Belgian court.
In September 2010 the head of the commission released harrowing details of some 300 cases of alleged sexual abuse by Belgian clergy.
The abuse was found in nearly every diocese, and 13 alleged victims had committed suicide, he said.
However, he found no indication that the Church had systematically sought to cover up cases.
The Church pledged to set up a victims' support centre in a first attempt to rebuild public trust, and to co-operate more with the police.
Two major reports into allegations of paedophilia among Irish clergy last year revealed the shocking extent of abuse, cover-ups and hierarchical failings involving thousands of victims, and stretching back decades.
In one, four Dublin archbishops were found to have effectively turned a blind eye to cases of abuse from 1975 to 2004.
The Dublin archdiocese, it said, operated in a culture of concealment, placing the integrity of its institutions above the welfare of the children in its care.
In the wake of the report, all Irish bishops were summoned to the Vatican to give an account of themselves in person before the Pope.
Four bishops, named in the report, handed in their resignations. The Pope accepted two but told the other two he wanted them to continue.
Six months earlier, another report - the result of a nine-year investigation - documented some six decades of physical, sexual and emotional abuse at residential institutions run by 18 religious orders.
With the Church still reeling from the reports' findings, a fresh scandal erupted in March 2010 when it emerged the head of the Irish Catholic Church, Cardinal Sean Brady, was present at meetings in 1975 where children signed vows of silence over complaints against a paedophile priest, Fr Brendan Smyth.
Cardinal Brady resisted calls to resign but issued an apology for mishandling the matter.
A few days later, on 20 March, Pope Benedict XVI apologised to victims of child sex abuse by Catholic priests in Ireland.
He then accepted the resignation of Bishop John Magee, an aide to three popes before being assigned to Ireland, who was found to have mishandled allegations of clerical sex abuse in his County Cork diocese.
Pope Benedict has now appointed a panel of nine prelates to investigate child abuse in Ireland's Catholic institutions.
Over the past two decades, the Roman Catholic Church in the US - with the archdiocese of Boston in particular - has been embroiled in a series of child sex scandals.
There was public outrage after abuses in the 1990s by two Boston priests, Paul Shanley and John Geoghan, came to light, with suspicions that Church leaders had sought to cover up their crimes by moving them from post to post.
In 2002 the then-Pope John Paul II called an emergency meeting with US cardinals, but allegations continued to emerge.
Despite an apology and pledge to take a tougher line, Archbishop Bernard Law resigned over the scandal at the end of the year.
In September 2003, the Boston archdiocese - the fourth-largest in the US - agreed to pay $85m to settle more than 500 civil suits accusing priests of sexual abuse and church officials of concealment.
