Third Highest Ranking Vatican Official, Chief Adviser to Pope, Charged with Child Molestation
Australia’s most senior Catholic became the highest-ranking Vatican official to be charged with sexual assault, when Australian police announced that he faces multiple “historical sexual assault offenses” early Thursday.
Cardinal George Pell, 76, currently serves as Pope Francis’ chief financial adviser. He is the third highest ranking member of the entire Catholic church.
The Associated Press reported that he is set to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court on July 18. While Australian police have yet to reveal the details of the charges, the label of “historical” sexual assault charges means that it could have been several years since the offenses were committed.
“It is important to note that none of the allegations that have been made against Cardinal Pell have, obviously, been tested in any court yet,” Victoria State Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton told reporters in Melbourne. “Cardinal Pell, like any other defendant, has a right to due process.”
This is not the first time Pell has been the subject of sexual abuse allegations. The claims date back to before Pell was a priest, with one man testifying that Pell molested him on several occasions at a campsite on Phillip Island in 1961, when he was 12 years old and Pell was a trainee priest.
After Pell was ordained in 1966, there were complaints of his conduct in 1978, when he was Episcopal Vicar for Education in the Ballarat diocese in Victoria.
Allegations include that while playing a game in a pool, Pell repeatedly touched the genitals of two young boys who were students at St. Alipius primary school. Pell was responsible for overseeing the school, which is now remembered as a notorious breeding ground for pedophiles in the 1970s.

Philip Nagle, a former student who is now in his 50s, told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse in 2015 that 12 of his 33 classmates had “committed suicide because of the sexual and physical abuse that took place at the school.”
Pell was then accused of behaving inappropriately around young boys again in 1986, when he was serving as seminary rector at Corpus Christi College. Les Tyack, a local businessman, claimed that he walked into one of the changing rooms at the Torquay Surf Club, and found Pell exposing himself to a group of boys, aged 8-10.
“I said, ‘Hi George’, and at that time he was toweling, had the towel going across his shoulders drying his back, but he was facing three young boys standing about three or four meters across from him,” Tyack said, noting that Pell stayed in that position for at least 10 minutes.
In July 2016, Pell was accused of sexually abusing two teenage choir boys in the backroom of St. Patrick’s Cathedral during his time as archbishop of Melbourne from 1996 to 2001.
In spite of decades of allegations from the myriad of victims, Pell continued to move up through the ranks of the Catholic church.
Naturally, Pell has consistently denied the claims, referring to any efforts to investigate them as part of a “scandalous smear campaign.”
That same rhetoric continued on Thursday, after a statement from the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney claimed that Pell plans to return to Australia to confront the charges as soon as possible, and he “is looking forward to his day in court and will defend the charges vigorously.”
As The Free Thought Project reported, Pope Francis went from admitting that about 1 in 50 Roman Catholic priests are pedophiles and promising to find solutions in 2014, to quietly reducing sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests earlier this year.
CIA, Facebook, And The Clintons
By Jon Rappoport
This article recounts key events along a time line that stretches from 1986 to the present. Follow the bouncing ball.
Since Facebook went public with an IPO (Initial Public Offering) of stock in 2012, I’ve been following the trail of its stock price.
In 2012, I wrote:
“But now the Facebook stock has tanked. On Friday, August 17 , it weighed in at half its initial IPO price. For the first time since the IPO, venture-capital backers were legally permitted to sell off their shares, and some did, at a loss.”
“Articles have begun appearing that question Zuckerberg’s ability to manage his company. ‘Experts’ are saying he should import a professional team to run the business side of things and step away.”
“This has the earmarks of classic shakeout and squeeze play… First, [insiders] drive down the price of the stock, then they trade it at low levels that discourage and demoralize public investors, who sell their shares…As the stock continues to tank, the insiders quietly buy up as much of it as they can. Finally, when the price hits a designated rock bottom, they shoot it up all the way to new highs and win big.”
In 2013, I followed up and wrote: “Facebook launched its IPO and went public on May 18, 2012. The opening stock price was 42 dollars a share.”
“In September 2012, the collapsing stock hit a low of 17.55.”
“On October 17, 2013, a year later, after a long climb, the stock reached an all-time high: 52.21.”
“So…Facebook, a company with CIA-front connections, a company that encourages people to offer up surveillance data on themselves [and censors politically incorrect news], goes through a financial transformation. Its IPO price collapses like ice in a heat wave. It keeps trading at its new low prices, scaring lots of investors.”
“They sell their shares. Insiders buy up those shares at delicious discounts.”
“Then, when the insiders have scooped up enough, they begin to move the price. Up. The long climb begins.”
Now, in June of 2017, it’s time to check in again. What’s happened to Facebook’s stock price since the high of $54 a share in 2013?
From October 2016 to December 2016, there was another shakeout that convinced many shareholders to dump their stocks—and of course, insiders gobbled up those shares for themselves. The shakeout took the stock price down from an all-time high of $127.88 a share to $115.05.
Then, once again, the relentless climb resumed. On June 2nd of this year, the stock reached a new all-time high of $153.61.
All in all, quite a ride. From the IPO price of $42, down to $17…and now $150.
Are some of the insiders who have been engineering Facebook’s long-term stock-rise front-men for the CIA?
I ask that question because of Facebook’s CIA connections:
The big infusion of cash that sent Mark Zuckerberg and his fledgling college enterprise on their way came from Accel Partners, in 2004.
Jim Breyer, head of Accel, attached a $13 million rocket to Facebook, and nothing has ever been the same.
Earlier that same year, a man named Gilman Louie joined the board of the National Venture Capital Association of America (NVCA). The chairman of NVCA? Jim Breyer. Gilman Louie happened to be the first CEO of the important CIA start-up, In-Q-Tel.
In-Q-Tel was founded in 1999, with the express purpose of funding companies that could develop technology the CIA would use to “gather data.”
That’s not the only connection between Facebook funder Jim Breyer and the CIA’s man, Gilman Louie. In 2004, Louie went to work for BBN Technologies, headed up by Breyer. Dr. Anita Jones also joined BBN at that time. Jones had worked for In-Q-Tel and was an adviser to DARPA, the Pentagon’s technology department that helped develop the Internet.
With these CIA/DARPA connections, it’s no surprise that Jim Breyer’s jackpot investment in Facebook is not part of the popular mythology of Mark Zuckerberg. Better to omit it. Who can fail to realize that Facebook, with its endless stream of personal data, and its tracking capability, is an ideal CIA asset?
From the time Mark Zuckerberg was a child and attended the summer camp for “exceptional children,” CTY (Center for Talented Youth), run by Johns Hopkins University, he, like other CTY students, Sergey Brin (co-founder of Google), and Lady Gaga, have been easy to track.
CTY and similar camps filter applications and pick the best and brightest for their accelerated learning programs. Tracing the later progress of these children in school and life would be a walk in the park for agencies like the CIA.
When Zuckerberg founded an interesting little social network at Harvard, and then sought to turn it into a business, the data-mining possibilities were obvious to CIA personnel. Through their cutouts, as described above, they stepped in and lent a helping hand.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Facebook/CIA presented an anti-Trump stance, which meant a pro-Hillary stance. Is that a pro-CIA stance? Let’s look at a fascinating piece of history involving the CIA and the other Clinton: Bill.
The source here is the explosive 1995 book, Compromised, by Terry Reed and John Cummings.
According to the authors, Bill Clinton, way back in the 1980s, was involved with the CIA in some very dirty dealings in Arkansas—and I’m not just talking about the cocaine flights landing at the Mena airport.
It seems Bill had agreed to set up CIA weapons-making factories in his home state, under the radar. But because Arkansas, when it comes to money, is all cronies all the time, everybody and his brother found out about the operation and wanted in. Also, Bill was looking for a bigger cut of the action.
This security breach infuriated the CIA, and a meeting was held to dress down Bill and make him see the error of his ways. His CIA handlers told him they were going to shut down the whole weapons operation, because Bill had screwed up royally. A screaming match ensued—but the CIA people backed off a bit and told Bill HE WAS STILL THEIR MAN FOR AN EVENTUAL RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY.
Of course, there are people who think Reed and Cumming’s book contains fiction, but John Cummings was a top-notch reporter for Newsday. He co-authored the 1990 book, Goombata, about the rise and fall of John Gotti. He exposed US operations to destroy Cuban agriculture with bio-weapons. It’s highly doubtful he would have put his name on Compromised without a deep conviction he was correctly adding up the facts.
Here, from Compromised, is an account of the extraordinary meeting, in Arkansas, between Bill Clinton and his CIA handlers, in March of 1986, six years before Clinton would run for the Presidency. Author Terry Reed, himself a CIA asset at the time, was there. So was Oliver North, and a man named “Robert Johnson,” who was representing CIA head Bill Casey.
Johnson said to Bill Clinton:
“Calm down and listen….We are all in this together. We all have our personal agendas…but let’s not forget, both the Vice President and Mr. Casey want this operation to be a success. We need to get these assets and resources in place and get them self-sustaining and prospering on their own while we have the chance. This is a golden opportunity. The timing is right. We have communists taking over a country in this hemisphere. We must all pull together and play as a team. This is no time for lone wolves…
“I’m not here to threaten you [Bill Clinton]. But there have been mistakes. The Mena operation survived undetected and unexposed only because Mr. [Barry] Seal carried with him a falsely created, high-level profile of a drug runner. All the cops in the country were trying to investigate a drug operation. That put the police in a position where we could control them. We fed them what we wanted to feed them, when we wanted to feed them; it was our restaurant and our menu…now we have to shut it down….
“Bill, you are Mr. Casey’s fair-haired boy. But you do have competition for the job you seek. We would never put all eggs in one basket. You and your state have been our greatest asset. The beauty of this, as you know, is that you’re a Democrat, and with our ability to influence both parties, this country can get beyond partisan gridlock. Mr. Casey wanted me to pass on to you that unless you fuck up and do something stupid, you’re No. 1 on the short list for a shot at the job you’ve always wanted.
“That’s pretty heady stuff, Bill. So why don’t you help us keep a lid on this and we’ll all be promoted together. You and guys like us are the fathers of the new government. Hell, we are the new covenant.”
By this account, Bill Clinton was the CIA’s boy back in 1986, long before he launched himself into his first 1992 Presidential campaign.
That speaks of major planning. In 1992, an obscure governor from a rather obscure state suddenly gains national prominence and vaults to the head of the line in the race for the White House.
Now, consider the role of the CIA-connected Facebook in the 2016 presidential election. Did Facebook’s strategy of cutting off pro-Trump postings/information and instead supporting ANOTHER CLINTON, HILLARY, signal the continuation of a long-running covert CIA op to put and keep the Clintons in power?
Since 1986, have the Clintons been a package deal for the CIA?
Was the most recent incarnation of that deal the Facebook op to put Hillary in the White House?
Most people have a problem looking at long-term ops. They conceive of covert actions taking place along severely limited time lines. That’s exactly what major operatives count on. They can plan in the dark for two or three decades ahead (or longer) and feel they’re in the clear.
And when a little social networking company comes along and needs an infusion of cash, they can step in, help, and, seeing the possibilities, they can help push the stock to new highs and accomplish elite surveillance and censor true information and support their favored presidential candidate—all during the same dozen years.
It’s an easy program.
All sorts of cards can be played from the bottom of the deck.

Mysterious Deaths of Holistic Doctors, Scientists, and Bankers
In the summer of 2015 12 holistic doctors died under suspicious circumstances within 3 months of each other. If reports are to be believed the death tally of holistic doctors now stands at around 60. In 2016 there was a spate of banker deaths that spanned the globe. In 2001 several microbiologists were found dead of suicide or 'foul play'. In 2013 3 climate scientists died mysteriously. What's happening? Conspiracy theories abound but there is no hard evidence linking all of these deaths together. Were these professionals in possession of some top-secret knowledge that put their lives at risk from the powers that be or are all of these deaths merely an unfortunate coincidence?
Dueling and witchcraft To Be Legalized In Canada
Challenging someone to a duel or practicing witchcraft will no longer be considered a criminal offense in Canada, thanks to a new bill which seeks to update the country’s outdated Criminal Code.
Bill C-51 will remove 20 criminal offenses, such as duelling, fraudulently practicing witchcraft, telling fortunes and publishing crime comics from Canada’s Criminal Code.
Before the new updated legislation, challenging someone to a duel and accepting the said challenge could have drawn a sentence of up to two years in prison, according to Section 71 of the old code.
Full Moon In Sagittarius Represents The Truth Seeker
June 9th 2017 – Full Moon In Sagittarius
This is a very powerful and important Full Moon! A Sagittarius Full Moon encourages us to have fun, quest for knowledge and expand our visions. A Sagittarius Full moon also represents the Truth Seeker…..and at this time in History….that is a very important energy to be out there! Sagittarius also represents the law. International Law in particular. This Sagittarius Full Moon is truth seeking and very dynamic. Sitting with the Moon is Saturn and Saturn rules the Government and responsibility on all levels. We are being asked to gather up and look at all the information (Sagittarius Moon and Gemini Sun) that we can find…..so that we can quest for the truth…..as we continue moving forward! Truth, with this Sagittarius Full Moon…is the ultimate goal! This Full Moon suggests a shift in perspective and a questing for Truth! Making this a very active…high energy… Full Moon!
This Sagittarius Full Moon is also called a Micro-Moon because it is sitting on the Lunar Apogee…. which is the farthest place from the Earth in the Moon’s orbit….making it appear as the smallest Full Moon of 2017! The point of Lunar Apogee is also (to us Astrologers) referred to as “Black Moon Lilith”. Black Moon Lilith was said to have been the first woman that God created…but she became way too powerful and was cast aside for a more subservient version (Eve)….Lilith, became very angry and became associated with the destructive feminine.
This Full Moon also encourages us to think deep and focus on our own Truth. This is important as we have been through a lot of activations and down loads over the last months and years. Leaving us with a feeling of not only “the rug being pulled out from under our feet”….but also a feeling of being surrounded with Chaos and Urgency! Things seem a little unstable, uneasy, and fluid. This is also true throughout the world (especially politically) and with the Earth herself. We are being asked to see and create “our own” big picture and focus on it. We are being asked to create our new future out of the chaos that is happening around us. Even though we may not be sure of exactly where we are headed…start moving…and Trust (Sagittarius) in your Guidance. These changes are happening in all areas of our lives. All the seeds that have been planted over the last months and years…are now sprouting…we need to decide which ones to nourish and which ones to let go of.
Full Moons are a time of releasing. It is a time of releasing the “old” that is no longer working. Go deep into yourself, your foundations, your old perceptions, your Soul….and observe what is no longer working for you….and then release it…. to make way for the new. It is a time of purging and releasing in all areas of your life. The Full Moon phase suggests that things that we are not aware of….shine bright to make themselves known…..and emotional level’s are highly activated…..similar to high tide in the Ocean.
At all Full Moons we have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon. So with this Full Moon we have the Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun in Gemini. Full Moons are about bringing the sign energy of the Moon into balance with the sign energy of the Sun. This Full Moon is about learning to balance the polarity of Sagittarius (higher knowledge, religions and philosophies, higher spiritual knowledge, the master teacher, the Truth seeker, travel, optimism and Joy!) with Gemini (communication, teaching, multitasking, youth, chatter, and writing). We are trying to balance Sagittarius’s inner nature with Gemini’s fast flowing thoughts. Sagittarius’s deep philosophical thoughts, with the mentally expressive Gemini. Sagittarians quest for higher meaning in life while Gemini’s need to gather and integrate information. Gemini is where you teach a small class and Sagittarius is where you become the master teacher. Gemini is where you write the book and Sagittarius is where you publish it. Remember that during this shift we are trying to bring Balance into all areas of our lives. Balance is extremely important now. We are being asked to move away from the chatter of Gemini…..to the more meaningful ways of presenting our truths and wisdom’s. Sagittarius is about the Truth….and the Truth Seeker….seeking Truth in this life time and from past life times. The Truth is not intellectual….Truth comes from the Heart!
Sagittarius also has a lot to do with our information and our belief systems. Do we truly believe in the belief systems that we have been caring around with us? All the different belief systems, that are active in our daily lives? Are we actually walking our talk? Speaking our truths? Now is the time to meditate on this and Listen!! It is time to manifest the changes that need to be made!
We also have the Full Sagittarius Moon sitting with Saturn! Saturn rules the Government/military/corporate America/stock market etc. Saturn is about structures and following the rules! The sun actually opposes Saturn on June 15th and it is the Earth’s closest approach to Saturn the entire year. Saturn is also the Wisdom of the Elders. With Saturn sitting with this Full Sagittarius Moon….it is telling us that we need to take on the responsibilities of the high Wisdom’s…..rather it is in the government, corporate America, or ourselves! We need to operate with integrity and respect! When you have Saturn with the Moon…it can be a time of going within….thinking things over. Saturn with the Moon can sometimes bring on a little depression…..it will be temporary as the Moon will move away from Saturn quickly. Saturn also makes us look at our limitations…..in hopes that we will strive to move far beyond them!
The Gemini Sun (part of the Full Moon) is also sitting with Ceres! Ceres is about fertility, growth, rites of passage and also the over protective Mother. With Ceres next to the Sun and opposing the Moon/Saturn….there could be issues with bonding, or with nurturing, over protecting someone or yourself.
We have Jupiter sitting stationary at this Sagittarius Full Moon! Jupiter stations an hour after the exact Full Moon! Jupiter also rules Sagittarius, meaning that their energies are very similar! When a planet is Stationary…it is a powerful concentration of energy….as it is just standing still and not moving! The Universe is making a statement here…..we need to be speaking and seeking the higher knowledge in all areas…..we need to speak our Truth, Walk our Talk….. and we need to seek/quest for the Truth in all areas…. at all times!
Remember also that the back drop of this Full Sagittarius Moon, is the ongoing and continued Cardinal Square between Pluto/Juno and Uranus/Eris/Pallas Athena. This Cardinal Square is still very powerful and with Pallas Athena and Juno being part of it…brings in relationships of all kinds and the balancing of the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Male. Pluto continues bringing us the energy of transformation and Uranus/Eris continues to bring us the energies of constant change and chaos! This configuration continues to put us on the path of accelerated evolution and radical change! With the added energy of the Sagittarius Full Moon…..the Universe is saying that we need to transform and change…in the way in which we communicate and share our wisdoms. We need to bring in more nurturing, caring and love when we communicate, and above all…we need to speak the Truth and think with our hearts! No lies, no secrets, no out of bounds ego. We are all one…no one is better than anyone else!
Remember, even though we have a lot going on……take some time during June and July to rest some. Meditate….especially outside. Think about what you have been through over the last several years/months….time to “get your ducks in a row” and mediate on your future…. what your individual “big picture” looks like. We are preparing for the wild ride of our second Eclipse Season…which starts in August and many powerful energies that will be active though November!
Release what is no longer vibrating with you, especially in the areas of communication, truths, knowledge, your beliefs, and how you share them through various ways of communication. What areas do you now have the energy and courage to become the truth seeker in? Again mediate, connect with your guidance and Listen!
What truths are coming up for you that no longer are vibrating with the higher energies that you are now embodying? What truths do you now need to bring out into the open so they can be released for you and humanity? What is your belief system and how can you speak of it…while honoring others belief systems. Seek your Truth….Walk your Talk….Now is the time!!!!
Meditate and manifest on how to bring all areas of your life into Balance!! Especially in the areas of Relationships…..ALL Relationships!! Also meditate and manifest on ways that you can help to bring the community, your tribe, humanity and the World into a peaceful Balance!! Above all manifest…..meditate….ask for guidance……and Listen!
This is a powerful Full Moon statement from the Universe. The Universe is asking us to… Meditate….and to start nurturing the seeds that have been downloaded to each of us over these last several months….and support them as they continue to grow. Nurture with our high Spirituality, connection to Source/God/Goddess… and our Belief systems!!
Remember that this is also a time to take care of yourself. Drink lots of water, eat good food, breath, get out in nature…. as we are trying to incorporate into our human form an abundance of energies, many of which we are not that comfortable with right now. So listen to your body and rest when you need to. Remember It is easy to get riled up, as our buttons can be pushed and reactions can be fast with this Full Sagittarius Moon…..so try to slow down and think before responding……put e-mails that have triggered you into “send latter” and go back later and re-read before sending. Remember this is a lot of changeable, urgent and transformative energy for our bodies, and the Earth, to try to handle and embody. Relax, mediate, get out doors, exercise, be creative and manifest. This will help the body absorb these energies in a more peaceful and loving way. Allow your life to unfold naturally. Sit by a body of water and pay attention to your dreams. Above all manifest…..meditate….ask for guidance……and Listen! We are co-creating our own reality…..make it a beautiful one!
These are the energies affecting all of humanity and the Earth. These energies also affect you individually, according to how they activate your own birth chart.
