ABC’s Paul Barry on his Media Watch show, throwing cold water on reports of SRA. Below: Ian Leslie back in 1989 with his explosive report on SRA.

THIRTY-two years ago, 60 Minutes journalist Ian Leslie reported on a British girl who was trapped for 12 years in a satanic cult. Teresa, at age 2, was sent to live with her grandmother who was a leading member of the cult and used her granddaughter in systematic rapes at satanic rituals.

Leslie said it was ‘the most painful and disturbing story’ he had reported on in 27 years of journalism. He had to ask whether Teresa, aged 15 when interviewed, had somehow made it all up. He consulted Ray Wyre, a psychologist and expert on satanic ritual abuse (SRA), who said he believed Teresa’s story. Wyre had heard similar accounts from 21 other SRA victims.

But now, in 2021, talk of satanic pedophile rings is all “conspiracy theory”, according to 60 Minutes new girl Sarah Arbo and the ABC’s Paul Barry. It seems 60 Minutes is suddenly backing away from its decades-long, periodic exposure of high-level satanism and pedophilia networks. No such thing exists, says Arbo, except in the minds of those who follow the “QAnon cult”, that featured in a recent 60 Minutes special.

This latest media talking point that any suggestion of satanic and pedophilia criminal networks is a conspiracy theory, and the real danger is QAnon, would be laughable if it were not serious. A NSW “counter-terrorism specialist” cop named Nick Kaldis has joined in with the lunacy, saying he thinks QAnon is threatening national security.

Kaldis and his media friends appear to think QAnon followers launched an “insurrection” against the United States government on January 6th, 2021. In fact, a quite different story is emerging. People on site filmed teams of hooded people being bussed in to stir up the riot at the Capitol building. This was the crew smashing a window to force entry when the doors had been opened, dramatically abseiling down walls and forcing congressmen and women to run for cover inside. And of course, who could miss the crazy QAnon guy with the horns and facepaint!

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised with this sort of deep state PR coming from Sarah Arbo, who hails from 10 News and SBS Dateline, and is also a graduate from “a fellowship at CNN headquarters in Atlanta” in 2014. We would love to know exactly what transpired during Arbo’s “CNN fellowship”. Visits, perhaps, to the creepy Vanderbilt estate in Asheville, North Carolina, and the CIA at Langley, Virginia, as part of a “get to know Anderson Cooper” field trip?

Ms Arbo and producers Garry McNab and Darren Ally used their QAnon hit piece to pull 60 Minutes right back into CNN-style denialism of any suggestion of satanism and pedophilia at high levels of society. Perhaps Ms Arbo’s introduction to the Cooper/Vanderbilt/CIA circles included briefings on why celebrity journalists should toe the deep state party line, or alternately, end up like Hollywood pedophilia whistleblower Isaac Kappy, “jumping” to your death off a bridge.

Banging the same drum as Ms Arbo (surprise, surprise) is the Oxford-accented ABC guy Paul Barry, whose Media Watch program recently came out attacking 60 Minutes and journalist Ross Coulthart over his 2014 coverage the pedophile scandal that for years had already enveloped leading people in the UK government. Apparently, there’s serious doubts about the reliability of several witnesses.

Barry devoted an entire Media Watch program to attack Coulthart and the apparently unreliable witnesses to pedophilia crimes they allege were committed by high-level UK politicians. Channel Nine, in a letter to Barry, pointed out that contrary to Barry’s claims, the witness ‘Nick’ was “not a source or a key witness” for their story “in any way whatsoever and no allegation in our story came from him”.

Barry’s report implied that the UK pedophile scandal was not, as Coulthart said, the biggest political scandal in British history and the entire story had “fallen apart” because of “Nick”. One might ask if Paul Barry, the neoliberal anglophile, is an apologist for the corrupt and rotten British political establishment.

Barry’s program totally ignored the facts around the wider, global context of this scandal, not even mentioning Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell or key UK players like the late “Sir” Jimmy Saville, the sleazy BBC poster boy of British pop music and (after his death) accused abuser of hundreds of children in National Health Service facilities and at the BBC.

Saville was a prominent part of the UK and global political game of human trafficking and pedophile compromise and extortion of which Epstein and Maxwell were also key players and who were also given due attention by 60 Minutes … until the earth-shattering “QAnon cult” suddenly appeared.

The cult exposed in Ian Leslie’s report reached into Australia, where Fiona Barnett, Rachel Vaughan and others have similarly spoken out about horrific abuse by cults involving prominent people. Cairns News recently reported on Vaughan’s interview with UK private investigator Shaun Attwood, in which she described the years of satanic ritual abuse at the hands of her father and other members of a cult in Adelaide that came to be known as The Family. The cult was linked to serial murders for which the city became infamous.

For the record, QAnon grew up around a one-way message board pointing to a plan of concerted action against the deep state and the global pedophile cult that operates within it. This plan apparently involved military intelligence and other insiders around President Donald Trump. “The Plan” certainly didn’t roll out to the degree “Q” promised, but Trump did initiate real action against human traffickers that is continuing today in some states, despite the pervert president Biden (whose son Hunter has been revealed in photos as a pedophile offender) reversing the process. Biden, like his pedo predecessor Obama, created big business for the Mexican cartels and their notorious drug and human trafficking operations by ignoring big gaps in the border.

The Democrat plan has always been to flood the US with Mexican and other illegal immigrants to use as cheap labor for their corporate sponsors and to stack them on to the electoral rolls with “guidance” from party operatives working through governments and NGOs. Illegals have also been bussed to election booths for mass vote fraud operations.

The satanic cult stories that have appeared over the years have faced increasing push-back from mainstream media and academic institutions such as the study by Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Va, that selectively focuses on failed cases and recanted reports.

The satanic ritual abuse narrative is disliked by mainstream society and its media for obvious reasons. Political power desires the trust of the bulk of the population, but when the wicked underbellies of many in power are exposed, it’s a problem. Sure, media will expose con men, crime gangs and murderers, but suggestions of high-level crimes involving child sexual abuse and the like are “dangerous conspiracy theories”.
