Illegal? Immoral? Insane?

Much is being made of a “buried, suddenly removed” 2004 Washington Post article about Podesta and photos of naked teenagers on his walls at home.

First of all, the article is about Tony Podesta, not John Podesta. John is Hillary’s campaign chairman. Tony is John’s brother. Tony is also a political mover and shaker in Washington.

The WaPo article begins this way:

Married, With Art
Tony and Heather Podesta Are a Study in Power Collecting
By Jessica Dawson
Special to The Washington Post
Thursday, September 23, 2004; Page C01

“The collection started almost by accident. It was 1980, and Tony Podesta was bidding adieu to co-workers from Sen. Ted Kennedy’s just-failed bid for the presidential nomination. On their way out the door, staff members were handed whatever goodies remained — among them a tube of limited-edition prints donated to the campaign by the likes of Warhol and Rauschenberg.”

“A quarter-century later, those prints are history, but Podesta is counted among the nation’s most important contemporary art collectors. Inside the elite Chelsea galleries, he and his wife, Heather, are gossiped about, deferred to and ushered toward the choicest works. All the art stars know their names.”

Skipping down, we get to this:

“Political candidates eagerly tap [Tony] Podesta’s mojo, too: He spearheaded President Clinton’s successful 1996 Pennsylvania campaign, and Sen. John Kerry has hired him to work the same magic for him in the Keystone State this year [2004]. [Wife] Heather, 26 years his junior and several shades greener, carved a career aiding Reps. Robert Matsui and Earl Pomeroy; she joined Blank Rome’s law and government relations firm this spring.”

Tony has been very active politically, on behalf of Democrats.

The WaPo article eventually presents a shocker:

“’At political events [at Tony’s home], there’s an inevitable awkwardness’, former Clinton administration official Sally Katzen said at a Women’s Campaign Fund dinner at the Podestas’ home this summer. ‘The art is an ice-breaker. It puts people at ease’.”

“Not always. Folks attending a house tour in the Lake Barcroft neighborhood in Falls Church earlier this year got an eyeful when they walked into a bedroom at the Podesta residence hung with multiple color pictures by Katy Grannan, a photographer known for documentary-style pictures of naked teenagers in their parents’ suburban homes.”

“’They were horrified’, Heather recalls, a grin spreading across her face.”

—end of WaPo excerpt—

The Matrix Revealed

Tony Podesta: big-time art collector and patron of the arts; big-time mover and shaker in Washington; big-time campaign consultant for Democratic candidates; pictures of naked teenagers on his walls.

Does anyone stop to ask how permission was obtained to shoot those photos in the first place? And then to print them, sell them, show them publicly? The parents of the children gave their consent? The kids gave their consent? On what basis does anyone allow teenagers to make that kind of decision for themselves—or think that teenagers have the capacity to make such a decision? Technically, the whole operation may fall within the law (although I don’t see how), but on every other level it’s insane. And it’s child endangerment.

And a major political operative in Washington, Tony Podesta, sees no problem with it. He has the photos on his walls at home. He displays them for his Washington insider pals and donors. They may blush, but they look. And none of them raises a public objection. They keep their mouths shut, because this is Tony Podesta, and he’s a power player.

In the sewer called Washington DC.

Trump vs. Pope: the cowboy vs. the head of Pedophile Central

Trump vs. Pope: the cowboy vs. the head of Pedophile Central

Let’s try to assess US immigration policy vs. Vatican immigration policy.

Just a thought. Might turn up something. Who knows?

I notice the Vatican has a wall. A big high wall. It’s probably just a decorative feature, but I’ll take a wild guess and say it also tends to keep people out. Walls sometimes have that effect. I’m not sure why. It’s one of the enduring mysteries.

The Washington Times, 9/24/2015, “Pope’s call for immigration leniency unlikely to change debate”:

“The Vatican, for its part, welcomes millions of visitors a year — but allows only a very select few, who meet strict criteria, to be admitted as residents or citizens. Only about 450 of its 800 or so residents actually hold citizenship, according to a 2012 study by the Library of Congress.”

All right. So the Vatican (which is actually a nation) has, what, two or three immigrants?

James Robb, writing at thesocialcontract.com (“How Many Immigrants Does Vatican City Take?”), puts it bluntly:

“What it [Vatican City] does not have is any immigrants. Nor refugees. None.”

What about US immigration? Here’s an overall statement from migrationpolicy.org, “Frequently Requested Statistics on Immigrants and Immigration in the United States”:

“In 2013, approximately 41.3 million immigrants lived in the United States, an all-time high for a nation historically built on immigration.

“The United States remains a popular destination attracting about 20 percent of the world’s international migrants, even as it represents less than 5 percent of the global population.

“Immigrants accounted for 13 percent of the total 316 million U.S. residents; adding the U.S.-born children (of all ages) of immigrants means that approximately 80 million people, or one-quarter of the overall U.S. population, is either of the first or second generation.”

Got that? Depending on how you want to look at it, the number is between 40 and 80 million immigrants.

So: Vatican immigration vs. US immigration? The math- comparison isn’t hard to make, even for people raised in the American school system.

But of course, the Pope has to take a shot at Trump and the idea of building a wall between Mexico and America. Naturally. Why? Well, Virginia, if you really want to know the naked truth…

The Pope, like his predecessors, wants unlimited immigration because it obviously leads to chaos. That’s why. It’s quite simple, when you boil it down.

The Roman Church, you see, has always thrived in periods of chaos. Tumult. Conflict. Expanding poverty. The Church knows chaos. It’s built to handle it.

Widespread prosperity? No. It’s not made for that kind of future. Burgeoning prosperity is the enemy, before which the Church shrivels.

The Pope, as a contributing member and executive of Globalism, Inc., has the job of spreading poverty and lowered living standards wherever possible—because that is the world he and the Rockefeller Globalists are promoting.

Unlimited immigration is a gigantic con job, dressed up to look like heraldic humanitarianism—and of course the rubes and yokels and wild-eyed kiddie idealists fall for it like sugar freaks at a candy convention. The model is Hope and Spare Change.

Again, the real purpose of limitless immigration is chaos—behind which the heavy Globalist hitters come in and install their kind of order. Tight. Very tight. Top-down. It’s an old formula.

That’s why the Pope speaks about the climate-change agenda as well, which equals, when you strip away the messianic nonsense, lowered energy production for the whole planet. Further grinding poverty, from Nome to Tierra del Fuego.

Do I really have to point out that anyone dressed up in a robe and a tall hat, riding in a bubble, who is infallible and heads up a flock of 1.25 billion people, is suspect?

Moving right along, you might look at this quote from AP/CBS News, 5/17/2014, “Vatican reveals how many priests defrocked for sex abuse since 2004”:

“The Vatican revealed Tuesday that over the past decade, it has defrocked 848 priests who raped or molested children and sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser penalties, providing the first ever breakdown of how it handled the more than 3,400 cases of abuse reported to the Holy See since 2004.”

Yes, and how many cases have gone unreported, or were concealed by the Church? Notice, too, the penalties for the criminal priests: being fired from the job (defrocking), and “lesser” discomforts (lifetime penance and prayer).

The current Pope has spoken out against these crimes, but what has he actually done about them?

Time Magazine, February 11, 2016, “Catholic Church Tells Bishops They Are Not Obliged to Disclose Child Sex Abuse: Report”:

“The Catholic Church is allegedly telling newly ordained bishops that they have no obligation to report child-sexual-abuse allegations to law-enforcement officials, saying instead that the decision to take such claims to the authorities should be left to victims and their families.

“The policy was first reported by a veteran Vatican journalist at Catholic news website Crux, who cited a presentation given by French Monsignor Tony Anatrella.

“Anatrella, a consultant to the Pontifical Council for the Family and the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers, also authored a training document for new bishops released by Church authorities last week, in which similar guidelines are laid out.

‘“According to the state of civil laws of each country where reporting is obligatory, it is not necessarily the duty of the bishop to report suspects to authorities, the police or state prosecutors in the moment when they are made aware of crimes or sinful deeds,’ his document states, according to a citation in the Guardian.”

Really, Pope Francis?

the matrix revealed

Maybe His Eminence should worry about putting his own house in order. Perhaps, safely tucked away inside Vatican City, he’ll have time to contemplate the number of immigrants his City admits versus the number of pedophile priests in his worldwide operation versus the number of victims of those priests.

Then he might come up with a formula suggesting priorities.

Instead of jabbering about a nation in which 40-80 million immigrants already reside.

Don’t hold out hope, though. After the lights go down in Vatican City, I’m sure those esteemed prelates regale each other with stories of the desolate Middle Ages, when Church power really meant something…and how they long and plan for a return to those glory days as partners now in Globalism Inc.

When the masks come off.

Graham Spanier, former Penn State president who, according to the Freeh report, helped cover up Jerry Sandusky’s pedophile crimes, turns up with a federal-government job so secret no one can talk about it.


Spanier’s lawyer, Peter Vaira, tells the Washington Post he doesn’t know what the job is or which agency Spanier is working for. The job involves part-time consulting on national security issues.


Spanier claims he obtained a security clearance from the feds during his tenure as Penn State president, and after he was fired, federal investigators checked him out and decided to maintain that clearance.


In other words, because Spanier kept his mouth shut about Sandusky’s crimes against children, this proved he was no snitch and the government could trust him to keep its secrets, too?


The NY Times has reported on a 2002 incident involving Spanier. A Phoenix private investigator, Paul McLaughlin, claims he spoke with Spanier on the phone. McLaughlin offered to send Spanier a tape of a conversation in which a Penn State professor, John Naisworth, admitted he molested McLaughlin when he was a young boy. According to McLaughlin, Spanier refused the tape.


A case against Professor Naisworth was eventually thrown out. The judge wouldn’t allow the tape to be entered as evidence.


What federal agency is Spanier now working for? What national-security issues is he privy to? Is there an agency we’ve never heard of, whose job is to protect high-level pedophiles from investigation and prosecution?


Spanier denies he ever knew about Sandusky molesting children. He states he never would have let something so heinous slip by. He may have a chance to prove that in court. Charges could be filed against him.


Victor Thorn, writing at the American Free Press, paints explosive background on Spanier’s tenure as chancellor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and Spanier’s possible connection to the infamous Franklin Coverup, a pedophile operation that reached into the highest levels of the US government.


…one of Spanier’s personal associates at UNL was a man named Ronald Roskens [a past UNL Chancellor and President]. Roskens has been intimately linked to the notorious Franklin Scandal, and then received his termination notice after being photographed with young naked boys at his residence.

Gary Caradori, a private investigator that delved into Franklin, wrote of the circumstances surrounding Roskens’s firing. ‘I was informed that Roskens was terminated by the state because of sexual activities reported to the Regents and verified by them. Mr. Roskens was reported to have had young men at his residence for sexual encounters. As part of the separation from the state, he had to move out of the state-owned house because of the liability to the state if some of his sexual behavior was illegal.’

On July 11, 1990, after obtaining pornographic-pedophile photographs that would have irreversibly exposed Franklin, Caradori was murdered when his Piper aircraft exploded in mid-air, killing him and his eight-year-old son.

It goes without saying that the similarities between these acts of pedophilia in Nebraska show a close resemblance to the alleged Sandusky pedophilia scandal that Spanier helped cover-up at PSU. In this light, a question must be asked: Was Spanier brought to PSU because of his close ties to a far-reaching pedophile network in Nebraska? Was he the hands-on university president that oversaw what many in-the-know at PSU realized was a powder keg that could explode at any moment (and eventually did)?”



Meanwhile, Radar Online is reporting that a witness just told the FBI he saw Jerry Sandusky and a Penn State donor abuse two boys on a private plane. This witness states he has business connections with the donor.


Before this is over, we should, at the very least, learn yet again how a powerful institution (e.g., Penn State) covers up its knowledge of crimes and enables those crimes, in the service of maintaining a front of respectability and dignity. But if the investigation stops there, we’ll know less than we should about far-flung global pedophile networks:

How high does the corruption go? Was Jerry Sandusky the only pedophile at Penn State? Federal investigators are now looking into an unnamed prominent Penn State booster who may have been molesting young boys.


This would go a long way toward explaining why University officials covered up Sandusky’s crimes at Penn State for many years. He wasn’t the only one who need protecting.


Sandusky used his charity, Second Mile, to bring children into his orbit. It may now emerge that the storied football program at Penn State was itself a screen, a cover behind which boosters of the program were committing crimes against children.


A University shielding multiple pedophiles from prosecution? Yes, because they were connected to one of the most important institutions in Pennsylvania, Penn State football.


And if that is so, no doubt certain pedophiles became active football boosters at the University for the express purpose of attaining elite privilege above the law, just as pedophiles have entered the priesthood to exceed the reach of civil authority.


In November 2011, when the Sandusky scandal broke, Pennsylvania radio host Mark Madden predicted: “I will use the only language I can—that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich [Second Mile] donors.” Madden’s assessment may be confirmed in the coming days and weeks.


Greg Bucceroni, now a policeman working for the Philadelphia school system, states that he was taken, as a teenager (1979), to Second Mile, where he met Sandusky.


Bucceroni also says he was molested, starting in 1977, by a wealthy Philadelphia businessman, Edward Savitz. Savitz was finally arrested and charged with multiple counts of pedophilia, in 1992, and died a few days before his trial in 1993.




Bucceroni claims Savitz and Sandusky knew each other through Second Mile.


There is no current mention of Sandusky cooperating with federal investigators while he sits in prison. At times after his arrest, his calm demeanor suggested he was waiting to be delivered from conviction by influential friends. Since that hasn’t happened, he may have decided to seek a quid pro quo by naming names of other pedophiles with whom he was operating, at Second Mile and Penn State.


Postal inspectors are now looking into allegations that Sandusky was sharing child pornography with other pedophiles, using the US mail. This could expose a network that extends far beyond Pennsylvania.


PennLive.com reports that Second Mile’s own board, a few of whose members were actually appointed and listed without their knowledge (for example, former baseball player Cal Ripken), were shut out of all significant decisions at the charity; and this secrecy even extends to a recent decision to transfer Second Mile’s remaining assets to another charity for children, Arrow Child and Family Ministries.


Of note: Just last week, Second Mile announced it was shutting down an internal investigation into who, at the organization, knew about Sandusky’s criminal acts before his arrest, and exactly when they knew.


It’s not clear who at Second Mile made the recent decision to transfer the charity’s remaining assets, $2.6 million, to Houston-based Arrow Child and Family Ministries. It is clear, however, that Arrow Ministries has significant connections to the Bush family.


On Arrow’s board of directors sits Maria Bush, the wife of Neil Bush, son Of George HW Bush and Barbara Bush. Another board member, Susie Peake, “…served in various capacities for George HW Bush for over ten years.”


Twenty-three years ago, a child prostitution scandal, known widely as the The Franklin Cover-up (see also this link too), threatened to explode in the media and take down the Bush White House. Despite reports in the NY Times and the Washington Times, and despite brief television news coverage from Connie Chung and Tom Brokaw, the investigation dissolved and disappeared.


It’s worth noting that last month, the mother of one of Second Miles’ “unintentional” board members was kidnapped in Maryland, handcuffed and driven around for a full day. No ransom demands were made. She was later found unharmed in a car. The FBI are pursuing leads on a suspect. The woman is the mother of Cal Ripken. Had he been making unwelcome comments about Second Mile?

NOVEMBER 12, 2011. BREAKING…The Penn State committee just formed to investigate the current pedophile scandal at the University will be head up by college trustee, KEN FRAZIER.




I realize that many readers won’t see the significance of this connection. And in this piece, I certainly don’t have the space to lay out the case against Merck and their vaccines. But in my opinion, this is exchanging one form of child abuse for another.


And incidentally, how many of the 100,000 kids Second Mile has dealt with, in the state of Pennsylvania, have been promoted heavily to get vaccinated? How many adverse reactions have occurred?


Former Penn State football coach, Jerry Sandusky, started The Second Mile, a charity for at-risk children, in 1977. Sandusky is now accused of 40 criminal counts related to child sexual abuse. A witness states he saw Sandusky raping a young boy in the Penn State locker room, in 2002.


The Second Mile, on its site, claims it has helped 100,000 children in Pennsylvania. So far, Sandusky is the only accused pedophile.


To understand the reach of Second Mile and its prestige and influence in the state of Pennsylvania, and therefore to see how the current investigation could be narrowed or blocked, it’s instructive to note its supporters. Most of these names have now been removed from the charity’s site, but before that happened they were saved by at least several people. A poster at HawkeyeNation.com has put up many names. I found a few myself on Second Mile pages.


For example, Second Mile holds what it calls Challenge Residential Weeks. They are mini-camps for kids. They’re sponsored by Bank of America, The Hershey Corporation, Walmart, and Warnaco, whose leading brand is Calvin Klein.


Other companies show up peripherally, not directly, through individuals who work for them or did work for them and support or work for Second Mile:




Heritage Hills Golf Resort

Philadelphia Phillies

Quaker State

Highmark Blue Shield

Susquehanna Bank


Then there are people who have held honorary status at Second Mile:


Former Notre Dame football coach, Lou Holtz

Philadelphia Eagles coach, And Reid

Golf legend Arnold Palmer

Actor Mark Wahlberg

Matt Millen, former NFL player and current ESPN analyst (Millen was an unpaid “director” of an honorary board who possibly had duties at Second Mile)

Fired Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno

Baseball legend Cal Ripken

Franco Harris, former Pittsburgh Steelers star

Jack Ham, former Steelers star

John Cappelletti, former NFL player

Dick Vermeil, former NFL coach


I found four people who are Penn State employees:

Professor Ralph Licastro

Professor Bob Ricketts

Susan Rao, who works in a science laboratory

Jeff Smith


I’m in no way suggesting that any of these people are involved in the current Sandusky investigation or anything else untoward.


But it helps to understand the landscape. The very presence of these important names could result in someone, somewhere deciding it’s better to keep the Sandusky investigation on its single rail, and minimize efforts to find out what else, if anything, has been going on at Second Mile, or at Penn State.


Consider the furor that has been aroused by what has happened so far. The prospect, for law enforcement, for Penn State, for Second Mile, for who knows who else, that another or other pedophiles may exist is daunting, to say to the least. The repercussions could turn the tremors of an earthquake into a volcano.


In the years leading up to the arrest of accused child molester, Jerry Sandusky, there were not only clues, there were reports. The most stark report came from then-graduate assistant, Mike McQueary, who stated he saw Sandusky raping a young boy in the showers of the Penn State locker room, in 2002.


McQueary told his father, told Joe Paterno, the football coach, who then passed some version of what he was told to his boss—and so on and so forth, all the way up to the president of Penn State.


Where, apparently, nothing was done. The police certainly didn’t take action.


And then for nine years, Sandusky was free to come to Penn State and use the facilities, although he had already been retired from coaching (1999). He was sometimes in the company of children.


No one did anything.


McQueary rose to the position of assistant coach on the football team. He saw Sandusky, between 2002 and 2011, many times on campus. So did head coach Paterno. It is assumed that Paterno’s bosses also knew Sandusky had access to sports facilities at the college.


How to explain all this?


A psychological state of denial? Some sort of frozen indifference? Fear of spoiling the reputation of the college?


Although one or more of those reasons might be relevant, perhaps they’re too easy. Perhaps there is more to this than meets the eye.


Suppose these men were aware that the pedophile activity was far-reaching and involved other men? Suppose that was the real secret. And still is.


Yes, this is speculation. Certainly. But so is every other attempt to explain the apparent unconcern about Sandusky, who was on campus mere days before his arrest last week.


Suppose the prospect of, say, going to the police or the press about Sandusky meant the possibility of pulling back the curtain on other pedophiles, other boys, other connections—something so extensive it could never be lived down. Suppose, for example, other pedophiles were (and are) heavy hitters with more power and money and influence than a mere assistant football coach (Sandusky).


A similar paralysis infected Second Mile. Its attorney, Wendell Courtney, saw a 1998 police report indicating that Sandusky had showered with two boys. Although no charges were filed against Sandusky at the time, Second Mile could have removed him from all activities involving children. That is exactly what the charity did in 2008, when Sandusky informed the board that he was being investigated about yet another incident with a boy.


In 1998, the local police worked a sting on Sandusky. They listened to him him talking on the phone to the mother of one of the boys Sandusky showered with. During the call, Sandusky admitted what he did—but for reasons still not understood, the prosecuting attorney, Gricar, and Child Protective Services dropped the investigation. Why? (Gricar disappeared in 2005 and has never been seen again. He has been declared dead.)


To this point, we have heard nothing about photos or videos Sandusky may have possessed. Certainly, the police have searched his home and office. What did they find?


So far, when the press comments on the intransigence of Penn State and Second Mile officials, the statements are expressions of shock and moral outrage and puzzlement. It’s time to move past that and consider that there may be real explanations here.


Second Mile may be forced to close its doors. Moody’s has indicated that the bond rating of Penn State could suffer from this scandal. All because of the activity of one accused pedophile. Imagine what would happen, in this regard, if there are other pedophiles who are part of Sandusky’s operation.


More reasons to try to limit the investigation to Sandusky.


Jon Rappoport

















NOVEMBER 11, 2011. The Jerry Sandusky pedophile scandal, which has resulted in key firings at Penn State University, including revered football coach Joe Paterno—for not doing enough to report what he had been told about Sandusky—has many miles to go.


Sandusky, former assistant football coach at Penn State, has been charged with 40 criminal counts. Sandusky had a charity for “at-risk kids,” The Second Mile. Deadspin has uncovered a chart mapping out, county by Pennsylvania county, the foundation’s reach. Nearly 400,000 kids have been involved.


That’s enormous. I’m not sure I believe those figures. They may have been inflated by Second Mile. I don’t know. But anything resembling 400,000 means investigators and reporters have to consider an obvious question:


If Sandusky is guilty as charged, was he the only one preying on children? Was he using his connections to bring other pedophiles into the scene?


As I reported earlier, Pittsburgh radio host Mark Madden, basing his opinion on conversations with other reporters, believes it is quite possible that Sandusky was “pimping out” kids to rich donors (presumably donors to Second Mile).


If Sandusky is a pedophile, as charged, who else was he possibly involved with? Will he be pressured by law enforcement to reveal other names of predators? Will someone with influence try to limit the investigation?


If, as is likely, many people at Penn State knew, for years, that Sandusky was up to something strange, even though they didn’t know the details, what are chances that other pedophiles, knowing that Sandusky was potentially connected to huge numbers of children through Second Mile, approached him wanting favors?


Or that he approached them?


These other pedophiles could have included cautious careful men, men with resources and connections. If so, then we could easily be talking about a network. For years, Sandusky occupied a prestigious position at Penn State, itself a famous university.


Sport reporters, whistling in the dark, enamored of football programs, fancying themselves amateur psychologists and sociologists, are spouting the familiar line about “healing wounds.” They’re rushing to judgment, wanting Penn State to recover and move forward. If this investigation is not compromised, that isn’t about to happen. This isn’t a case of one football player shooting somebody or running his car into a tree. The stale progression of “mistake,” apology, rehab, and restoration is from another universe.


It’s been public knowledge that the grand jury on Sandusky, which released its findings last week, has been sitting for some time. During that period, there has been ample opportunity for criminals to destroy records and correspondence, make payoffs, issue threats, and close down connections.


Here is a fragment about a key year, 1998, based (by the Huffington Post) on the grand jury findings:



1998 – Victim 6 is taken into the locker rooms and showers when he is 11 years old. When Victim 6 is dropped off at home, his hair is wet from showering with Sandusky. His mother reports the incident to the [Penn State] university police, who investigate.

Detective Ronald Schreffler testifies that he and State College Police Department Detective Ralph Ralston, with the consent of the mother of Victim 6, eavesdrop on two conversations the mother of Victim 6 has with Sandusky. Sandusky says he has showered with other boys and Victim 6’s mother tries to make Sandusky promise never to shower with a boy again but he will not. At the end of the second conversation, after Sandusky is told he cannot see Victim 6 anymore, Schreffler testifies Sandusky says, “I understand. I was wrong. I wish I could get forgiveness. I know I won’t get it from you. I wish I were dead.”

Jerry Lauro, an investigator with the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, testifies he and Schreffler interviewed Sandusky, and that Sandusky admits showering naked with Victim 6, admits to hugging Victim 6 while in the shower and admits that it was wrong.

The case is closed after then-Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar decides there will be no criminal charge.

-end clip-

This is the same Ray Gricar who, in 2005, disappeared and has never been found. Police discovered, in his home, that he (or someone) had been searching on his computer for ways to wipe hard drives.

In 1999, a year after charges against Sandusky were not pursued, Sandusky resigned from coaching. This was unexpected. He had a very successful career in Penn State football. This leads to the speculation that someone at Penn State knew about Sandusky (knew something about his pedophile activities), and wanted the coach out of there. Yet, until last week, when grand jury findings were released, Sandusky still had informal access to University athletic facilities. Why? Was it just a case of turning a blind eye and hoping “everything would be all right?” Or were there people at Penn State who were afraid Sandusky might blow the whistle on their own criminal activities?

It was there, in 2002, in the Penn State locker room showers, that (according to a witness, now assistant coach Mike McQueary) Sandusky raped a young boy. This was the incident that was reported to several Penn State employees, including coach Joe Paterno, but was apparently never reported to local police.

Aside from Sandusky, there is at least one other connection between Penn State and Second Mile. In 1998, Wendell V Courtney was an attorney for Second Mile and was also the chief counsel for Penn State. In fact, in 1998, he reviewed the police report on Jerry Sandusky and, as Deadspin reports, Courtney continued to represent Second Mile for another 13 years. Courtney has, according to Deadspin, tried to say his association with Second Mile began in 2009, but this has been denied by Pennsylvania Attorney General spokesman Nils Fredericksen. Courtney was the attorney for Second Mile until this past Monday. He served as counsel for Penn State until last year.

State College is a city in Pennsylvania’s Centre County, home to the University Park campus of Penn State University. State College is also where, in 1977, Jerry Sandusky founded his youth charity, Second Mile. We will see what other connections have existed between Penn State and Second Mile.

Jon Rappoport










Looks like the “rich donors at Penn State” I referred to in my last piece may be rich donors at The Second Mile, the foundation for kids run by Jerry Sandusky, accused pedophile. The story is in mad flux. Drudge is linking to accusations of a pedophile ring AND the story of the 2005 disappearance of prosecutor Ray Gricar.

MarkMadden, a Pennsylvania radio host, wrote a piece about Jerry Sandusky, the accused Penn State pedophile, back in April, while a grand jury was deciding whether to indict Sandusky.


Madden alerted readers that something very nasty might leap out at them soon. Well, now it has. Sandusky has been indicted on 40 counts of child abuse. For years, he was Joe Paterno’s assistant football coach at Penn State.


And Paterno, and the school’s athletic director, and the school president have all been fired, because they were told (in one form or another) about Sandusky raping a young boy in the Penn State locker room shower, and they didn’t make sure the cops knew about it and took action.


Well today. Madden, this radio host, has more to say. He states there is a chance that Sandusky, who has been running a foundation to help young kids, has been pimping some of these kids out to rich Penn State donors.


I was speculating about this to a friend last night. I was also telling him about the mysterious case of Ray Gricar, the local prosecutor who considered filing charges against Sandusky back in 1998, when the first report came in accusing Sandusky of washing two naked boys in a shower. Gricar eventually decided not to prosecute.


No one can ask Gricar about his reasoning now, because he disappeared a few years ago, after leaving his home to do a few routine errands.


Eventually, his car was found. Inside the car was his cell phone. His wallet and keys were gone.


Sometime later, his laptop was found in a river, with the hard drive missing.


Sometime later, the hard drive was found in the river bank, but it was too damaged to collect data from.


Police, at Gricar’s home, examined his desk computer, and discovered that Gricar (or someone) had been doing searches on how to disable a hard drive.


Gricar has never been found.


What was so important on the hard drive? Evidence of wider pedophile activity?


Did Gricar commit suicide? Was he murdered?


Jerry Sandusky, the accused pedophile, was once one of the most respected assistant college football coaches in America. When he abruptly retired, in 1999, people were shocked. Equally strange, no college since that time has signed him up to coach.


But since 1999, Sandusky has had access to Penn State football facilities, and was seen there as recently as last week.


Sandusky’s foundation for at-risk kids, The Second Mile, is well known. It has major funding. It’s also, of course, a perfect setting for a pedophile.


Nothing has been proved in court against Sandusky. There could be a trial, there could be a plea bargain.


Yesterday, several sports writers, in the wake of the firings at Penn State, said, “Let the healing begin.” They always do. They always refer to sports programs as “the point of pride” for a big university. As if without that religious component, the whole institution would go down the drain. Well, now they may have to wait for the healing. Because if this latest suggestion about pimping out kids to rich donors is true, football will fade out. The University will crumble, and that’s just for starters.


There will be secret payoffs, certain men will be boarding planes out of the country, various cover-up crimes will be committed. There will be massive stonewalling.


Keep watching. See if this accusation of pimping kids to rich men is dismissed as irresponsible incitement…and vanishes with no follow-up, no investigation.
