Ritual Abuse is Real | Cover-up of Child Sexual and Ritual Abuse

in #satanic3 years ago (edited)

The ritual abuse of children, which is often commonly referred to as Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) happens, it is real. The 'controllers' have been snapping a quick lid on any leaks of the reality of the absolutely heinous criminal acts perpetrated upon innocent souls here in the UK, the U.S. and around the world for decades, centuries, if not millennia. 

How is ritual abuse defined? 

I found the following definition within a 1992 FBI Report – Satanic Ritual Abuse by Kenneth V. Lanning posted on a website for an organisation called Cultwatch: 

From the same FBI unit depicted in the movie Silence of the Lambs this FBI Behavioral Science Unit Report into Satanic Ritual Abuse is  objective and revealing. Cultwatch recommends that any law enforcement  officer considering acting against someone accused of Satanic Ritual Abuse first read this report in it’s entirety.
1992 FBI Report – Satanic Ritual Abuse 
by Kenneth V. Lanning, Supervisory Special Agent Behavioral Science Unit National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime FBI, 
INTRODUCTION
Since 1981 I have been assigned to the Behavioral Science Unit at the  FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, and have specialized in studying all  aspects of the sexual victimization of children. The FBI Behavioral  Science Unit provides assistance to criminal justice professionals in  the United States and foreign countries. It attempts to develop  practical applications of the behavioral sciences to the criminal  justice system. As a result of training and research conducted by the  Unit and its successes in analyzing violent crime, many professionals  contact the Behavioral Science Unit for assistance and guidance in  dealing with violent crime, especially those cases considered different,  unusual, or bizarre. This service is provided at no cost and is not  limited to crimes under the investigative jurisdiction of the FBI. 
In 1983 and 1984, when I first began to hear stories of what sounded  like satanic or occult activity in connection with allegations of sexual  victimization of children (allegations that have come to be referred to  most often as “ritual” child abuse,) I tended to believe them. I had  been dealing with bizarre, deviant behavior for many years and had long  since realized that almost anything is possible. Just when you think  that you have heard it all, along comes another strange case. 
The idea that there are a few cunning, secretive individuals in  positions of power somewhere in this country regularly killing a few  people as part of some satanic ritual or ceremony and getting away with  it is certainly within the realm of possibility. But the number of  alleged cases began to grow and grow. We now have hundreds of victims  alleging that thousands of offenders are abusing and even murdering tens  of thousands of people as part of organized satanic cults, and there is  little or no corroborative evidence. The very reason many “experts”  cite for believing these allegations (i.e. many victims, who never met  each other, reporting the same events,) is the primary reason I began to  question at least some aspects of these allegations.
[...]
DEFINITIONS
The words “satanic,” “occult,” and “ritual” are often used  interchangeably. It is difficult to define “satanism” precisely. No attempt will be made to do so here. However, it is important to realize  that, for some people, any religious belief system other than their own is “satanic.” The Ayatollah Khomeini and Saddam Hussein referred to the  United States as the “Great Satan.” In the British Parliament a Protestant leader called the Pope the Antichrist. In a book titled  _Prepare For War_ (1987,) Rebecca Brown, M.D. has a chapter entitled “Is Roman Catholicism Witchcraft?” Dr. Brown also lists among the  “doorways” to satanic power and/or demon infestation the following: fortune tellers, horoscopes, fraternity oaths, vegetarianism, yoga, self-hypnosis, relaxation tapes, acupuncture, biofeedback, fantasy role-playing games, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, judo, karate, and rock music. Dr. Brown states that rock music “was a carefully masterminded plan by none other than Satan himself” (p. 84.) The ideas  expressed in this book may seem extreme and even humorous. This book, however, has been recommended as a serious reference in law enforcement training material on this topic. In books, lectures, handout material, and conversations, I have heard all of the following referred to as  satanism: — Church of Satan:
— Ordo Templi Orientis
— Temple of Set
— Demonology
— Witchcraft
— Occult
— Paganism
— Santeria
— Voodoo
— Rosicrucians
— Freemasonry
— Knights Templar
— Stoner Gangs
— Heavy Metal Music
— Rock Music
— KKK
— Nazis
— Skinheads
— Scientology
— Unification Church
— The Way
— Hare Krishna
— Rajneesh
— Religious Cults
— New Age
— Astrology
— Channeling
— Transcendental Meditation
— Holistic Medicine
— Buddhism
— Hinduism
— Mormonism
— Islam
— Orthodox Church — Roman Catholicism

The following excerpt is from the website of a male survivor of childhood sexual abuse:

What is Ritual Abuse? 
© Beyond Survivor - The Wounded Warrior Blog | November 23, 2014
The term ‘ritual abuse’ was first used in the early 1980’s, to describe a  particular form of abuse, (predominantly of children), involving  organised ritual as a central feature. The term first appeared in North  American literature and was used in Australia from 1984 onwards (Scott,  Sara. 2001. The politics and experience of ritual abuse: beyond disbelief.  p1). Since this time, the term ritual abuse has been defined in various  ways, by various people, including survivors, academics and workers  from professional fields that come into contact with survivors and  perpetrators e.g. Police, social workers, psychologists etc.  
Ritual abuse has existed for longer than the last twenty years.  Survivors talk of their childhood experiences of ritual abuse, occurring  in the 1950’s and 60’s. Ritually abusive practices within families are  often trans-generational- meaning they are practised by various  generations of family members over many years. Evidence, derived from  court cases and personal accounts, indicate ritual abuse existed as far  back as the 16 th century (Ritual Abuse Survivors and Supporters,  Australia , “Extent” at http://www.heart7.net/ritual-abuse-ss.html).  
The extent to which it is practised in Australia is hard to determine  due to a number of factors, including the highly secretive nature of  ritual abuse practices and a culture of disbelief which further hides it  and, which influences and impedes political and social institutions’  responses toward it.  The 1989 Report by the Ritual Abuse Task Force of Los Angeles County  Commission for Women, defined ritual abuse in the following way:  
Ritual abuse usually involves repeated abuse over an extended period  of time. The physical abuse is severe, sometimes including torture and  killing. The sexual abuse is usually painful, sadistic and humiliating,  intended as a means of gaining dominance over the victim. The  psychological abuse is devastating and involves the use of ritual  indoctrination. It includes mind control techniques which convey to the  victim a profound terror of the cult members and of evil spirits they  believe cult members can command. Both during and after the abuse most  victims are in a state of terror mind control and dissociation. (ASCA 2002. Healing from Ritual Abuse: Also known as Organised Sadistic Abuse. Information Package. P3)  
Survivors of ritual abuse may give varying descriptions of their  experiences. However, a number of factors generally feature across accounts including:  
  • The abuse includes physical, sexual and psychological abuse;
  • The abuse constitutes a range of criminal acts;
  • It is systematic, can be ceremonial and often occurs within a group  setting (usually more than one perpetrator at a time, but not always);
  • Like all abuse, ritual abuse is about power and control, but is  designed to more expressly meet the needs of a group, with the specific  purpose of indoctrination into that group’s belief system or ideology;
  • Mind control techniques or programming plays a significant part in  keeping group members faithful to the group and its needs. Much of this  programming is about engendering a sense of terror within group members,  so that they will not leave the group or expose the group’s criminal  practices to outsiders.
Survivors’ accounts of their experiences of ritual abuse also include attempts to clearly distinguish this kind of abuse from other kinds of  abuse they may have experienced. For example, in Sara Scott’s book, The politics and experience of ritual abuse: beyond disbelief (2001,  p62-80), women survivors of childhood abuse, including ritual abuse, clearly distinguished between their experiences of more “regular” forms of familial abuse, and their experiences of abusive cult ritual, prostitution and child pornography. However, all of these women’s accounts illustrated that the different kinds of abuse and exploitation they survived were interconnected within a culture where the abuse of women and children is normalised - a daily reality.  
Survivors have also questioned the fact that the term ritual abuse has become too broadly applied. For many survivors ritual abuse, where a belief system or ideology plays a key role in abusive ritual, must not be confused with “ritualistic abuse” –abuse which is perpetrated in a habitualised manner, such as the sexual abuse of a child perpetrated on a  daily basis (Ritual Abuse Survivors and Supporters, Australia. “The Abuse/Criminality”, at http://www.heart7.net/ritual-abuse-ss.html).  The term and practice of ritual abuse has also been closely linked with other categories and practises of abuse, including: -  
a) “organised abuse”, which refers to the abuse and exploitation of children through organised crime (prostitution and pornography) and paedophile rings; 
 b) institutional abuse, which refers to the abuse of persons within political and social institutions, such as within schools, orphanages and mental health facilities etc;  
c) “organised, sadistic abuse” which is often used as an umbrella term  across these kinds of abuse, wherein ritual abuse features as a more extreme example.
Impacts of ritual abuse on survivors
Ritual abuse has profound effects upon the lives of child and adult  survivors. The range of psychological symptoms and emotional effects  survivors may experience include:-  
Trauma related symptoms such as flashbacks, dissociation, amnesia  and triggered flight or fight reactions to circumstances which in some  way remind the survivor of abusive experiences;
  • Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) or Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD);
  • Self harm and eating issues;
  • Suicidal thoughts and attempts;
  • Confusing concepts of good and evil;
  • Preoccupation with death;
  • Memories of ritualistic practices such as Black Masses and  sacrifices to Satan and those which involves gang rape, murder, the abuse of animals and being buried alive;
  • Memories of symbols and ceremonial objects used in rituals such as inverted crosses, swastikas and chalices.
  • Memories of perpetrators dressed in ceremonial and bizarre costumes;
  • Memories of being tortured and/or deprived of sleep, food and water;
  • Memories of being drugged during rituals;
  • Phobias of symbols associated with rituals, blood, certain colours, drugs, incense, candles and being confined in small spaces.
  • Shame, guilt and blame;
  • Addictions.
This list is not exhaustive, but simply gives us some idea of the  immense impact that ritual abuse has on survivors. It also illuminates  the tremendous strength of those who survive ritual abuse.   
Surviving in a culture of disbelief
Added to the immense impact of ritual abuse on survivors, is the  frustration and despair of attempting to survive within a wider culture  where ritual abuse experiences are disbelieved and denied. It has only  been in the last 30 years that the idea of sexual violence perpetrated  within families has been acknowledged by society. Today, as a society we  still struggle to adequately support those who have experienced incest.  We continue, as a society to harbour and reproduce myths, which blame survivors for their experiences of rape. We continue to witness the  situation within the criminal justice system where perpetrators get away  with their sexual crimes, or receive minimal punishment, and where  survivors receive little justice and recompense. This is the situation  with more regular or common forms of sexual violence.  
Therefore, it is little wonder that society struggles with the very idea  of ritual abuse. Its practices sound bizarre and are very disturbing.  It is difficult for people to believe that members of their own society  would dream of gaining personal benefit and gratification from extremely  sadistic and systematic abuse of others, especially children. It is  hard for people to face up to the fact that people can be so cruel.  However, ritual abuse is an unfortunate reality for some - it does  exist.  The culture of disbelief is further compounded through the very social  and political systems and institutions, which are supposed to promote  the best interests of survivors, as those requiring special personal  support and legal protection and justice.

I am of the opinion that the whole push to negate the existence of Satanic Ritual Abuse which has also been referred to as 'Satanic Panic' in the UK and the U.S., along with the creation of 'false memory syndrome' during the '80s in particular, was purposefully created as one of the integral aspects of the ongoing massive worldwide cover-up of the sexual abuse, rape, trafficking, torture and sometimes murder of children. Dr. Collin Ross agrees.

If you are not familiar with Dr. Ross’s work I suggest this interview with Henrik on Red Ice Radio as a good backgrounder on what brought him to focus upon this area of psychiatry: Dr. Colin Ross - Psychological Trauma & Mind Control in the Intelligence Services

Further information about satanic ritual abuse, along with what he calls the “psychiatry scam” is available at Dr. Ross’ website

I personally originally became fully aware of the reality of satanic ritual abuse when someone in a ‘love ‘n light’ group I belonged to a number of  years ago approached and confided in me about their own experiences as a mind-controlled sex slave in Hollywood which he was remembering as his trauma-based programming was breaking down.

Cathy O’Brien of course was one of the first people to speak publicly about her own experiences. Here is one video with it's description below:

Many other survivors and witnesses of what is commonly known and referred to as satanic ritual abuse (SRA) rather than 'Luciferian', have and are speaking out about this. Another survivor of SRA who has been vocal for several years now is David Shurter. This is an excerpt from a recent article posted on the excellent Cathy Fox Blog which has a deep well of information about child sexual abuse, particularly in the UK.

David Shurter – A Remarkable Man
Posted on 2016, December, 6 by cathy fox blog    
Please note that victims of abuse may be triggered by reading this information. 
Happy Birthday to David Shurter who celebrates his 50th on 6 December  2016. He was born on 6.12.1966, brought up to be an antichrist and  others took their vows of allegiance to him. 
David was subjected to mind control “mk ultra” techniques as well as  satanic ritual abuse in his childhood. He was brought up in Omaha,  Nebraska into a family of satanists and child abductors and amidst the  Franklin child abuse network. 
David knew abusers Alan Baer, Larry King, Peter Citron and Police  Chief Robert Wadman. David’s handler was Colonel Michael Aquino who  founded the Satanic Temple of Set and had been in psy ops in the  military, MK Ultra, Presidio day care satanic abuse and is connected  personally to the Bush family. 
I recommend reading his book- David Shurter Rabbit Hole: A Satanic Ritual Abuse Survivor’s Story [1] He has also generously put online an extended version of his book, available for free. [2] 
This interview about his upbringing gives a flavour of life.  He has  now turned his life around, and although it is still not without its  problems, he has turned to the light and acts against the dark. A  remarkable man.

Please continue reading this article and watch the embedded video here at Cathy Fox's blog

There is also Kim Noble and the information which has come through her via her 13 or so alters, particularly the artwork which has been shared elsewhere here on Steemit including in my blog, The Cage Inside Comet Ping Pong.

Kim Noble is a rare occurrence: a trauma-based mind control survivor  with over 13 alter personas who don’t know each other but who all  paint. She has suffered DID and MPD (dissociative identity disorder and  multiple personality disorder) for most of her life, as a result of an  extremely traumatic childhood. Each one of her alters paints with a  personal and distinctive style but they all have one thing in common:  they reveal the dark world of mind control programming, from its  horrific techniques to its symbolism. We’ll look at the works of this  unique artist who reveals a world that is totally hidden from the  masses. 
The works of Kim Noble vividly document the life of a mind control slave  through the eyes of 13 alter personas. While a few of these alters  paint peaceful landscapes and nature scenes, most of them depict  horrific aspects of mind control such as physical torture, electroshock,  violent abuse, dehumanization and dark occult rituals. The stories told  by these paintings are almost too much to bear, yet they likely  actually happened to Kim Noble as they precisely reflect  accounts of  other Monarch survivors. Looking at the works of Kim Noble not only  reveals gritty details of an abominable practice carried on by “elite”  organizations, it reveals the symbolism that is also thrown in our faces  on a daily basis through corporate-owned mass media. Let’s look at the  life and works of Kim Noble.

I highly recommend reading the complete article dated September 22, 2011 at Vigilant Citizen.

In addition to the "fake news" aspect of the ongoing alleged "PizzaGate" revelations please also be on the look out for the possible insertion of "false memory syndrome" along with further promotion of the "normalisation" of paedophilia agenda into the official narrative to potentially distract from and negate any victim and witness testimony along with other evidence which may come forth, in what an increasing number of people feel is the ongoing cover-up of the rich and powerful's involvement in absolutely heinous crimes inflicted upon innocent children. This might well also potentially feed into the pre-existing 'culture of disbelief' which permeates the masses who cling to their beliefs of "Oh they wouldn't do that! Why would, how could anyone do that?" I can most certainly understand and empathise with the horror of the mere thought of such extremely disturbing behaviour of potentially monstrous proportions. I am not at all immune to this and as a compassionate person will never be. However, what people do not realise is that by not wanting to hear or talk about this highly emotive vile subject, they are unwittingly colluding with a conspiracy of silence and as such, enabling the abuse of children in all forms to continue.

Here in the UK we have seen a lot of documents including but not limited to Barbara Castle's files and the Dickens Dossiers 'disappear', files locked in the National Archives for decades, 50-100 years, along with buildings renovated and/or torn down which may possibly contain incriminating information and physical evidence about those involved in horrific acts perpetrated against children which could potentially be used against them if punishable crimes have been committed and legal charges are brought. The supporting documentation of what appears and may possibly turn out to be the deliberate obfuscation and/or destruction of potential evidence would also necessarily involve historic and current corruption, collusion and cover-up by individuals of course, along with quite possibly mulitple agencies including but not limited to governments, the police, the judiciary, social services, councils, charities, NGOs and the media being complicit on a worldwide scale.

The information is out there for those who have the eyes to see and ears to listen along with the ability to stomach the horrific details. As with everything, especially these days amidst the full-on information war of project chaos, high discernment and fact-checking whenever possible is highly recommended, desired and necessary in order to maintain the integrity of what has become a worldwide citizens' open source investigation. 

"What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big,  too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. This is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face."   

~ Former CIA director, Cercle member and Opus Dei sympathizer William Colby giving advice to his friend Senator John DeCamp, urging him to cease his investigation into the Franklin child abuse affair and to write a book about his  experiences ('The Franklin Coverup', 2nd edition,  foreword).

There is a lot of information on the internet about ritual abuse along with just about as much or more created to debunk and negate its very real existance. What follows are a few links for further exploration on this subject along with the alleged apparent ongoing cover-up of child sexual and ritual abuse in all it's heinous forms, particularly in connection to powerful people.

As researchers know well, the deep dark rabbit hole is seemingly endless, bottomless on this subject in all of its permutations. Please feel free to add more information and source links to the comments section. Thank you so very much for all that you do to shed light upon that which has lurked in the shadows for far too long. May the light of truth shine bright upon the path forward for all, especially the children and our children's children who are the future.

The words “satanic,” “occult,” and “ritual” are often used interchangeably. It is difficult to define “satanism” precisely. No attempt will be made to do so here. However, it is important to realize that, for some people, any religious belief system other than their own is “satanic.”

This is the problem that I see, that Satanism means nothing and it can actually be an escape goat. If you recognize Satanism for its religious interpretations you have you give preference to some interpretations over others. Then you are opening the window for those committing crimes to pass the blame by saying the figure of Satan made them do it. That they were possessed. But what happens if they can convince enough people that they are no longer possessed by the devil?

I can see how some people could come to think hurting children could make them better in a world where apathy can make you rich, they could even become sick enough to ritualize this.

You make an excellent and extremely important point of quite frightening potential. For me that very real possibility ties into the mind control in the matrix used in myriad ways which has permeated all aspects of society, in my opinion, via the music industry, books, television, film, Hollywood, msm, fashion, the education system and other government programs like social services, health care, etc. etc. Most people have become so accustomed to the programming and effectively re-framed to sync up with the desired socially engineered world that they are not aware of how it may have changed their behaviour and nature. In so doing they are in the process of and/or have become the kind of people that you have described. People become the desired product - those that have lost their innate human kindness and compassion, become apathetic and may possibly come to think that hurting children will help them achieve what they are told are the desired goals and live the artificial implanted dream of wealth and splendour. In so doing they become slaves to the system and open to being compromised and controlled which will of course serve to perpetuate and expand, 'normalise' this heinous behaviour to form what appears to be the ptb's desired brave new dystopian world .

I find it all so very disturbing, especially since I see it happening. Thank you so much for your comment.
