UK: Ex-police chief found guilty of sexually abusing boys in 1980s

A former police superintendent has been found guilty of sexually abusing boys in the 1980s at a Home Office attendance centre for young offenders and at a children’s home.

Gordon Anglesea, 79, becomes the highest-profile offender brought to justice through the National Crime Agency’s Operation Pallial, which has been investigating allegations of widespread and organised child abuse in north Wales.

Judge Geraint Walters gave Anglesea bail but made it clear he would be jailed when he is sentenced next month. Before leaving court, the judge said the defendant, a father of five, would have to sign the sex offenders’ register.

A man in the public gallery overlooking the court shouted: “This is a great day for British justice! Thirty years we’ve waited for this.”  (more...)

Former teacher, coach charged with new multiple sex-related offences

Thirty-five additional charges have been laid against a former teacher and basketball coach after seven more victims came forward to police with complaints stemming from incidents that took place over 35 years ago.

Donald Greenham, 73, has been charged with an additional 17 counts of indecent assault, 17 counts of gross indecency and one count of intimidation, the Ottawa police said in a statement Tuesday.

In August, he was charged with sexually molesting four students some three decades ago.

Police said the charges stem from incidents that occurred between 1971 and 1981, while the accused was working as a teacher and coach with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.

The victims range in age from 13-18 years of age.  (more...)


'Amateur hour behaviour': School trustee selection process needs review, educator says

While there are plenty of school boards across Canada that practise good governance, there are too many examples of trustees displaying "amateur hour behaviour," Ontario's former deputy minister of education says.

Misspent money, poorly conceived contracts, directors getting paid more than they're allowed  — these are just some of the examples of mismanagement that result from bad board governance, Charles Pascal says.

In fact, he says it may be time to take a closer look at how we choose trustees.

"Are there other ways of ensuring better governance by how trustees are selected?" Pascal said.

The role of trustees came under scrutiny this past week following the decision by B.C.'s education minister to fire all nine of the Vancouver School Board's elected members after they refused to balance the board's budget.  (more...)


So, we asked bozos like these to defend the faith in Catholic schools. We really need to rethink. Cronyism and nepotism haven't worked too well.

"'The Honor They So Clearly Deserve': Legitimizing the Waffen-SS Galizien"

Bohdan Matsiv (ed.), Ukrains’ka dyviziia ‘Halychyna:’ Istoriia u svitlynakh vid zasnuvannia u 1943 r. do zvil’nennia z polonu 1949 r. Lviv, ZUKTs, 2009.

Ernest Renan noted that “‘having suffered together’ and, indeed, suffering in common unifies more than joy does. Where national memories are concerned, griefs are of more value than triumphs, for they impose duties, and require a common effort.’ In Blood Sacrifice and the Nation, Carolyn Marvin argues ‘Blood sacrifice preserves the nation.’3She emphasizes that,
[T]he nation is the shared memory of blood sacrifice, periodically renewed. Those who share such memories often, but not always, share language, living space, or ethnicity. What they always share and cultivate is the memory of blood sacrifice. ... [T]he felt or sentimental nation is the memory of the last sacrifice that counts for living believers. ... At the behest of the group, the lifeblood of the community members must be shed. Group solidarity, or sentiment, flows from the value of this sacrifice.
Marvin maintains ‘The myth of the sacrificed Christ who dies for all men makes every sacrificed soldier a remodeled Christ dying to redeem his countrymen.’ This mythical narrative is rejuvenated through ritual, pledges, and ideological training. Part of the ideology is the development of nostalgia, admiration, and veneration. In the reproduction of nationalist mythology, Marvin asserts that ‘Photographers and reporters offer holy witness. Their presence is critical. Only through representation and commemoration do apostolic missions become group-unifying messianic sacrifice.

Over the past six decades, Die 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS (Galizische Nr. 1), often reffered to as Waffen-SS Galizien, a Ukrainian collaborating formation, organized by Reichsf├╝hrer-SS Heinrich Himmler in 1943, has been the object of intense myth making. The unit was demonized in the Soviet Union, and glorified by circles in the Ukrainian diaspora. In Canada, where many of the division’s veterans came to settle, diaspora venues regularly commemorated the ‘exemplary patriotism’ and ‘self-sacrifice’ of the unit. This sort of narrative was particularly heavily emphasized on even anniversaries.  (more...)

How Nazi War Criminals Got Into Canada

"... Canada's do-nothing policy about Nazis over the next 40 years was influenced by a persistent anti-Jewish bias within the federal bureaucracy. ... As war criminals were being let into Canada, their Jewish victims who barely survived the Nazi Holocaust were strenuously kept out. ..."
As the nation honoured its war dead this week, some who gave their lives for freedom were still left with an ironic injustice. Though Canada played an outstanding role in the Allies' success in World War II, a number of Nazis who committed war crimes against Canadians fighting overseas were allowed later to immigrate here and remain unpunished.

The Canadian Armed Forces held post-war trials in Germany. But further prosecutions were to be handled by the British military. They were soon stopped. And Canada failed to bring to justice any of those accused against the Canadian military even when some were later found living here.

Historian Alti Rodal says this is part of "Canada's complicity in crimes against humanity."

Strong charges, especially since Rodal was chief historian for the 1986 Deschenes Commission of Inquiry on War Criminals. She wrote a 580-page report on how Nazis were virtually welcomed into Canada and how successive governments ignored allegations of war criminals among them.

A federal government consultant, Rodal is currently writing a book based on her findings and new research - Other Priorities, to be published by Malcolm Lester Books.

Though Justice Jules Deschenes called for wide distribution of her report, Ottawa first buried it, then released it heavily censored. Even the bureaucrats must have been ashamed of its evidence of authorities caving in to pressure, of racist political decisions, and of investigators' incompetence. Other historians have since pursued the story.  (more...)

Hidden Hand: The Nazi International

 Nazi International
With this book Farrell takes a slight detour from his usual scientific detective work and moves into the realm of "conspiracy theory," or as he says, "conspiracy hypothesis." Using the same logical precision I have come to expect from his work, he analyzes the rumors and stories of Nazi escape at the end of World War 2.

Even in a work this size, over 400 pages, he can still only scratch the surface of the vast, powerful underground movement that the Nazi party created to facilitate their escape from their near-miss at world domination. As Jim Marrs has pointed out in his new book, and Farrell echoes here, the Nazi Party never surrendered - Germany, Japan and Italy did, but the Nazis did not. To drive the point home clearly, Farrell reproduces the "instruments of surrender" signed at the end of the war. Was it an incredible oversight to let the Nazis slip through the cracks like that, or was it just another part of their extraordinary plan?

The book is 12 chapters in 4 sections, and begins with a look at the surrender, the science fiction novels of Wilhelm Landig, Nazi UFO myths and Reinhold Schmidt, and part of the information Carol Rosin communicates from the late Werner Von Braun (a greater portion of which is available from Steven Greer's Disclosure Project, and well worth your attention). I was especially happy to see more information on Landig, as I was intrigued by his mention of Landig's novels in an earlier book.

He goes on to describe the financial processes by which Allied banking and other Big Money interests helped create both the Nazi party and the Bolshevik revolution. Again, he shows that the financial dealings and corporate underground created are so vast and powerful that even a book this size can only hit the high points. The legal wrangling of I.G. Farben's breakup took 52 years because the corporation was so vast and convoluted!

He discusses the escape theories surrounding Martin Bormann, Heinrich "Gestapo" Muller, and Adolf Hitler, having dealt with Hans Kammler and others in his previous books on Nazi scientific work.

He covers the migration of Nazis to South America and other places, and spends a large part of the book looking at the financial and political threads that indicate the heavy influence of the Nazis, even to this day. An interesting revelation is how important Nazis such as Otto Skorzeny were to the creation and training of our current nemesis, Arab terrorism.

He ends the book with information on the secret scientific work in Argentina and elsewhere, with a final chapter on Nazi influence in NASA. In the NASA chapter he quotes heavily from the research of Hoagland and Bara, which is also worth reading in depth. This is the only section where he gets back to the science we are so used to him writing about.

As always, Farrell dishes up a fantastic survey of the situation, paying great heed to detail and corroboration. He cites his sources, and provides actual copies of many documents, both in the main text and an appendix. He proves once again that he has the skills of a scientist with the intuition of a street wise detective. His procedure is logical and follows his usual structure of point by point elucidation backed up by evidence and lists of conclusions. Also, as always, he gives the reader lots of entry points to go deeper into the information.

While something of a departure from his more science oriented books, he proves that he can handle the topics of finance and politics as well as he does science. If you liked his other books, you'll like this one. If you are interested in just how much influence the Nazis still exert in this world and how they managed to get in that position, this is a good place to start.



 The Third Way
Mr. Farrell’s new magnum opus , ‘The Third Way – The Nazi International, European Union And Corporate Fascism’, picks up where his previous work, ‘The Nazi International’ left off. In usual Farrell fashion, he interweaves a variety of different facts, documentation and theories to solidify the fact that Nazism 2.0 [modern day Nazis] are not an outgrowth of the preview generation, but a continuance of the Post-WW2 Nazi ideology that plagued humanity decades ago.

As a particular document that Mr. Farrell cites says, “For us” – The Nazi International “The war never stopped.” When taken in conjunction with the fact that no representatives from the Nazi party ever formally surrendered, you can catch a glimpse at the innerworkings of the mentality being showcased that would drive Nazism 2.0 to the 21st Century.

This particular books is extremely vital in understanding the current breath and latitude of some of the wider/dire issues that are affecting society today – mainly fascism/corporatism/Nazism – and how those have spawned the seeds of what is now the European Union, with Germany at the tip of the spear so to speak.

Trenchantly, Mr. Farrell covers how the Nazis were able to extend their sphere of influence throughout different countries/agencies/etc and how that not only lead to technological/currency cartels, with I.G. Farben’s ghost at the forefront and the BIS coupled along, but also to the creation of the cosmology cartel known as CERN.

Would love to expound more on the aforementioned subjects, but that would be doing a disservice to Dr. Farrell’s work.

If you have read any of his previous work, you will greatly enjoy this piece immensely. And if you haven’t, it’s not a bad place to start as this particular book, more so than any other, is vital to comprehending certain aspects of issues that are everpresent in our society today, and will continue to plague us until something is done about it.


The Finance Curse: How Oversized Financial Sectors Attack Democracy and Corrupt Economics

 The Finance Curse

For many years economists have noted how countries rich in natural resources often fail to benefit from their unearned wealth. Indeed, sometimes the discovery of oil and gas can seem more like a curse than a blessing.

The Finance Curse shows how countries with oversized financial sectors can suffer a similar fate. The easy money that comes from finance carries hidden costs, in form of steepening inequality, political and intellectual corruption, industrial stagnation and periodic crisis and collapse.

Nicholas Shaxson, the author of Treasure Islands, and John Christensen, the director of the Tax Justice Network, explore this new paradox of plenty, and show once and for all that there's no such thing as a free lunch, and that those who believe the stories told by bankers are liable to end up on the menu.

"This is a wonderful piece of work which, inter alia, critiques in great detail the various claims made about the significance of the financial services sector to the British economy and examines the negative effects for the rest of us of having what is essentially an unregulated global casino in our midst."



So now there's no doubt that Canada's social conservatives have been taken for a ride by the Bay Street crowd. Time to notice that they're plundering the economy, too.
