There has been a tremendous amount of energy expended to discredit all such stories. At the forefront of the movement to deny the validity of the stories told by countless survivors is the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, a group led by a truly vile coalition of CIA-funded psychiatrists and accused (and in some cases convicted) pedophiles. Also playing a key role in the movement are Paul and Shirley Eberle, the authors of a purportedly authoritative book entitled The Politics of Child Abuse. The Eberles’ book attempts to lay the blame for virtually all child abuse accusations and prosecutions on overzealous prosecutors, therapists and parents. That argument might be a little more credible, however, if the Eberles themselves were not known to Los Angeles police as distributors of child pornography—a fact that media outlets conveniently and rather consistently ignore while touting the Eberles as authorities in the field of child abuse.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, claims of ritual abuse are certainly not a modern phenomenon. Such claims have actually been around for quite sometime, and they were given legitimacy by no less an historical figure than Sigmund Freud. Over 100 years ago, Freud recognized that ritual abuse was likely the primary cause of the psychological problems that he observed in his female patients. Author Kevin Marron noted that Freud had commented on the marked “similar-ity between what [his patients] told him and the accounts of the witchcraft confessions of the 16th century.” In a letter to a colleague, written in January 1897, Freud pondered: “But why did the devil who took possession of the poor things invariably abuse them sexually and in a loathsome manner? Why are their confessions under torture so like the communications made by my patients in psychological treatment?” If Freud were alive today, he might well add: “And why are the communications made by my patients a century ago so like the stories told to therapists today by survivors of SRA?”
Should this remarkable consistency spanning several centuries be attributed to some kind of recurring mass hysteria? Or can it best be explained by the fact that, as historians (and the Chicago Tribune) have noted, “satanic cults have been documented in Europe and America as far back as the 1600s”? Has there always been something dark and evil lurking in the shadows, only occasionally raising its head—at which times its existence is denied, its perpetrators cast as victims, and its real victims mocked and ridiculed? To ponder such a question, alas, requires calling into question some of our most fundamental beliefs about the nature of the world we live in—and that is a decidedly unsettling venture. Perhaps when viewed in the context of a covert, state-sponsored mind control program, some readers can begin to understand not only why there might be those who are motivated to inflict appalling levels of abuse on some of America's children, but also why so much effort would be expended attempting to discredit claims of horrific abuse if the claims are in fact valid. Truth be told, the stories told by survivors of ritual abuse tend to be self-dis-crediting. One of the potential benefits, therefore, of cloaking mind control activity in satanic rituals is that the operations are largely immune to disclosure. Even if an operation is uncovered, the stories told by the children tend to be so outlandish, so far removed from the world that we know, that the claims are easily cast aside as the product of a child’s fertile imagination. In May 2000, however, a report commissioned by the United Kingdom’s Department of Health concluded that Satanic Ritual Abuse was not (as an earlier report ordered by the Conservative government found in 1994), a “myth.” The Independent noted, in anticipation of the report’s release, that a “specially commissioned government report will this week conclude that satanic abuse does take place in Britain. It will say that its victims have suffered actual abuse and are not suffering from ‘falsememory syndrome.’”One of the primary authors of the controversial report was therapist Valerie Sinason, who reportedly had personally treated 126 survivors of ritualized abuse. According to a report in the Guardian, Sinason has said “46 of her patients claimed to have witnessed murder of children or adults during ritual abuse ceremonies that had involved up to 300 people at a time.

I didn’t believe when I read Cathy O’Brian’s book.
I didn’t want to believe when I read about the Dutroix case.
I didn’t want to believe when I read John Decamp’s book, or Nick Bryant’s about the Franklin case.
I don’t want to believe pizzagate.
Yet... all these stories from not just America have a common theme. Sexual exploitation of children, trauma, satanic ritual abuse, and seems to tie in with MKULTRA which was definitely real.
I guess either a lot of people around the world spread similar bullsh*t and some lost their lives or committed suicide because of “satanic panic.” /sarc
I’m not sure what to tell you, but if we know Epstein was trafficking young girls or children for the elite, and we know there are atheists, satanist, Catholics, etc. like every religion in the world. So yeah, this notion an elite ring who’s abusing kids also happens to worship Satan isn’t as asinine a concept as it could/should be.
Let’s take this a step at a time then. Prove to me the first claim is inaccurate. Prove to me the Fale Memory Foundation does not have board members tied to previous MKULTRA reports. And CIA.

The source is a joke...
He did the equivalent of saying “see that but job in the corner throwing his feces at the wall???
He is my source..”
The cases he listed are a who’s who of cases people make up fake stuff about to validate their conspiracy theories..
There is a legit case of child sex trafficking from I think Brazil with elites using orphans .. but that isn’t the US..
