At least 35 Disney World employees have been arrested since 2006 over alleged child sex offences, an investigation has revealed.
The suspects included a ticket seller, a concierge and a trainee tour guide at the Florida resort – and even a night shift manager accused of watching child porn at work while he wrote a church sermon.
Police caught many in stings modelled on the TV show To Catch a Predator, with undercover officers receiving explicit messages before the suspects agreed to meet at a home rigged with cameras.

The latest round of arrests last week netted another 13 suspects, including four who at some point worked at the sprawling Magic Kingdom.
Disney has insisted the theme park is so large, with around 70,000 employees, that those arrested represent only 0.01 per cent of people it has employed since 2006.
The Guardian reports this morning that Tony Blair is to take on a new role leading the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation.
This is no doubt great news. The 21st century’s greatest war criminal is called to lead the campaign against ‘extremism’ which he himself instigated. Truth be told, it only makes sense to appoint a mass murderer to such a delicate job because only a genocidal character could be intimately familiar with the nitty gritty of institutional hatred and intolerance.
The British former prime minister who launched an immoral interventionist war has been appointed as chairman of the European Council on Tolerance following his spectacular success as a Peace Envoy to the Middle East introducing reconciliation and new harmony to the entire region.
We were outside and inside the G4S AGM at the ExCel Centre in London, protesting against their profit from oppression, state violence and human rights abuses everywhere. Protesters who have disrupted the AGM inside have said that there are probably more protesters than genuine shareholders.
From G4S-run prisons in Israel where Palestinians are tortured and held without charge, to the killing of Jimmy Mubenga during his deportation from the UK by G4S security, to G4S-run prisons in South Africa where prisoners are tortured, to the killing of Mr Ward, an Aboriginal man in Australia who was cooked to death in a car while in the custody of G4S security: we WILL shut G4S down.
Even as the group has publicly celebrated its work, insider accounts detail a string of failures

The neighborhood of Campeche sprawls up a steep hillside in Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince. Goats rustle in trash that goes forever uncollected. Children kick a deflated volleyball in a dusty lot below a wall with a hand-painted logo of the American Red Cross.
In late 2011, the Red Cross launched a multimillion-dollar project to transform the desperately poor area, which was hit hard by the earthquake that struck Haiti the year before. The main focus of the project — called LAMIKA, an acronym in Creole for “A Better Life in My Neighborhood” — was building hundreds of permanent homes.
Today, not one home has been built in Campeche. Many residents live in shacks made of rusty sheet metal, without access to drinkable water, electricity or basic sanitation. When it rains, their homes flood and residents bail out mud and water.
The Red Cross received an outpouring of donations after the quake, nearly half a billion dollars.
The group has publicly celebrated its work. But in fact, the Red Cross has repeatedly failed on the ground in Haiti. Confidential memos, emails from worried top officers, and accounts of a dozen frustrated and disappointed insiders show the charity has broken promises, squandered donations, and made dubious claims of success.
The Red Cross says it has provided homes to more than 130,000 people. But the actual number of permanent homes the group has built in all of Haiti: six.
An enormous corporate-friendly treaty that many people haven’t heard of was thrust into the public limelight Wednesday when famed publisher of government and corporate secrets, WikiLeaks, released 17 documents from closed-door negotiations between countries that together comprise two-thirds of the word’s economy.
Analysts warn that preliminary review shows that the pact, known as the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), is aimed at further privatizing and deregulating vital services, from transportation to healthcare, with a potentially devastating impact for people of the countries involved in the deal, and the world more broadly.
“This TISA text again favors privatization over public services, limits governmental action on issues ranging from safety to the environment using trade as a smokescreen to limit citizen rights,” said Larry Cohen, president of Communications Workers of America, in a statement released Wednesday.
Streatham Jobcentre is to become the home of Iain Duncan Smith’s first Re-Education Centre where teams of gormless Jobcentre workers, psychiatrists, social workers and voluntary sector busy-bodies will team up to bully people with a mental health condition into low paid shit jobs as part of their ‘recovery’.
The South London Jobcentre already contains a Living Well Community Hub* where “specialist mental health services operating alongside Jobcentre Plus staff are working together towards a common goal of improving health and well-being and helping people to get back to, or stay in, work.” This is to be joined by a new Increased Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) team who, along with Jobcentre staff, will attempt to fix unemployed people with Cognitive Behavior Therapy and when that doesn’t work probably just stop their benefits.
With forced psychological treatment already threatened for those claiming social security, and moves to increase information sharing powers between Jobcentres and other agencies, these new centres represent the end of mental health services that people who are poor can actually trust. From now on only the naive or inexperienced will feel confident being open and honest with therapeutic staff knowing that a Jobcentre Work Coach is just next door waiting to sanction their benefits. Jobcentre staff, health assessors and charities have already been weaponised against unemployed, sick or disabled people, now nurses and psychiatric workers are also to be drafted into the unceasing war on the poor.
For Arabs and Britons who lost their loved ones in his shambolic Iraq war, Blair’s appointment as ‘peace envoy’ was an insult.
Tony Blair’s time as Middle East envoy representing the US, Russia, the UN and the EU has finally come to an end.
Eight years after he took up the role, Blair tendered his resignation and left one question: how come a war criminal ever became a “peace envoy” in the first place?
The people of the Middle East – and much of the world – have been asking this question ever since Blair was appointed the Quartet’s man in Jerusalem, solemnly and hopelessly tasked to bring “peace” between Israelis and Palestinians.
Was his new mission supposed to wash the blood from his hands after the catastrophe of the Bush-Blair invasion of Iraq and the hundreds of thousands of innocents who died as a result?
For Arabs – and for Britons who lost their loved ones in his shambolic war in Iraq – Blair’s appointment was an insult. The man who never said he was sorry for his political disaster simply turned up in Jerusalem four years later and, with a team which spent millions in accommodation and air fares, managed to accomplish absolutely nothing in the near-decade that followed.
Blair appeared indifferent to the massive suffering of the Palestinians – he was clearly impotent in preventing it – and spent much of his time away from the tragedy of the Middle East, advising the great and the good and a clutch
One of the most effective means the elite use today to get their way and push a particular agenda is to make it “hip, swinging and very, very cool”. Another way is to simply tell you what is obsolete and “out dated”. Who wants to be “behind the times”? Certainly not someone who is looking for the next “really cool” gadget! No, this particular person wants to be on the “cutting edge” of the “next big thing”!
Enter the banking cabal and their desire to have total and absolute control of your life through your banking account and your means of transacting business.
Think my “tin foil hat” is screwed on a little tight? Well, how about this gem that was released earlier today in England
The banks are closing branches and making people use the internet for their banking. All part of the criminal banks and criminal government (as per Bilderberg plan), to make it a cashless society. Once cash is gone, the terrorism of the bankers and government will commence.
Mega Corp needs a bailout, press of button and your savings are moved to the corporation. Didn’t vote “the right way” at an election, press of button you are a non person who can’t exist without the electronic money. This is planned terrorism. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

Notice how the “reporter” scowls when she mentions going to a bricks and mortar bank and how gleeful she is when discussing the use of online banking. No need for bricks and mortar, just hand over all your data, finances and business transactions to the bank and they will be happy to handled it for you!!
People have been growing and smoking marijuana for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until 1964 that anyone knew why it got you high. That year, the Israeli chemist Raphael Mechoulam isolated tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC, and went on to do groundbreaking studies on how and why marijuana affects the brain. But all along, he had his eye on another of cannabis’ chemical components, one that he had discovered a year before: cannabidiol, or CBD.
That’s changing now. As more and more states legalize medical and even recreational pot, CBD is coming under research scrutiny again. The general hypothesis is that CBD is responsible for many of marijuana’s therapeutic benefits but none of its downsides—like, you know, getting high. (For many patients using marijuana to treat symptoms like pain and nausea, the altered state of consciousness THC induces is an unwanted side effect.) Some states, including Alabama and Florida, have even legalized CBD for medical use while keeping THC illegal.
As you can imagine, big Pharma companies and many doctors doubt Abrahamson’s claims, but the former active Marine knows better.
In his letter, Jon recalls how he suddenly began to develop nerve problems and numbness in his hands and legs, a degenerative process that left him almost completely incapacitated.
Like many who doubt their diet affects the state of their overall well-being, Abrahamson didn’t know what was causing his symptoms, or his rapid weight gain despite no major changes to what he was eating and drinking.
But fed up and inspired to find the cause of his concerns, Jon investigated the situation further and eventually came to the realization that it was genetically modified organisms (GMOs) contributing to the debilitating symptoms he was experiencing.
If you were to do research into alternative therapies that appear to be providing clear results to the autistic community, you’d be hard pressed to find anything as impressive as the results that people are finding in using a protocol that Kerri Rivera has put together. Kerri Rivera is the author of “Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism”, and the mother of an autistic son. A core component to her protocol, which has reportedly documented over 160 outright cures of autism in the last 3 years, is an extensive protocol for dealing with parasites. I encourage anybody interested in autism to read her book and take note of the results she has documented.
In a previous blog post, I discussed the problem that parasites represent to those of us dealing with the conventional health model. When you realize that the established gold standard triple stool sample test for parasitic diagnostics fails to identify parasites better than 60% of the time, even when the parasites are known to be in the intestines, you can begin to see what a problem this creates for properly addressing the health of people dealing with a chronic health complaint(1). This means that at least 40% of the people dealing with a parasitic infection will not be properly treated, but will almost certainly be given SOME diagnosis and SOME treatment for their health complaint that will almost certainly be completely off the mark. Keep in mind that many parasitic infections don’t spend much time in the intestines to be identified, and that blood tests for parasitic diagnosis are also very poor.
How does Monsanto play into this?
If you’re looking into the problem of parasites, it makes sense to look at how our bodies defend themselves to parasitic infections, and therefore it is logical to examine possible disruptions to how well somebody may be able to make the heme based enzyme’s called “Eosinophil Peroxidase” and “Myeloperoxidase” which are known to play key roles in the defense of parasitic as well as other infections.(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)
At rapid pace companies, countries, and educated consumers are choosing to turn their backs on glyphosate and the toxic herbicide (in which it is the main ingredient), RoundUp. No doubt the World Health Organization’s (WHO) declaration that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic” has caused the biotech giant to experience massive profit losses, but according to many sources, it should be shelved for good reason!
“We know that glyphosate causes cancer in other mammals, but it has not been demonstrated in humans. This is because the effects have not been investigated thoroughly enough in people yet. But when we see that other mammals get cancer from glyphosate, we must assume that people who are exposed to the substance can also develop cancer.”
Israeli security sources have said that the French, British, German and Scandinavian boycotts of the Israeli Defence Exhibition (ISDEF) affect the Israeli army. They also stated that the boycott did not come as a surprise and that the exhibition was not a failure.
France, Britain, Germany and some Scandinavian countries prohibited their security companies from participating in the exhibition in which 20 countries exhibited their products.
According to today’s issue of Maariv newspaper, the exhibition was attended by about 4,000 people on its first day yesterday, including military leaders and ministers from Europe and East Asia.
A security source said that the “charade is well-known”, adding that Israel is aware that a number of countries claim to have good relations with it but do not give permission for their companies to go to the exhibition.
The source added that the boycott is noticeably harming and impacting the capabilities of the Israeli army and police to comprehensively study the products being used in the security sector around the world.
Stéphane Richard, the chief executive and chairman of the French telecommunications corporation Orange
The French telecommunications group Orange plans to end its cooperation with Israeli operator Partner Communications Company over the latter’s illegal activities in the Palestinian territories.
“Our intention is to withdraw from Israel. It will take time… [but] for sure we will do it,” said Stéphane Richard, the chief executive and chairman of the worldwide mobile phone network, on Wednesday.
“I am ready to do this tomorrow morning… but without exposing Orange to huge risks,” he added.
Back in May, rights groups urged Orange’s officials to denounce “attacks on human rights” and take action against the Israeli firm which is working under a license of the French company.
Swiss supermarket giants Coop and Migros have announced that they will no longer sell products that contain glyphosate, following the World Health Organization’s report stating that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. They have also announced that they will be exploring non-toxic alternative weed-killers.
Coop stated last week that “Even if the (Swiss) Federal Office for Agriculture (BLW) judges glyphosate can be continued to be sold without a health hazard for the population, we decided on Monday 18th May to no longer sell any glyphosate-based products in Coop supermarkets and Coop Building & Hobby hardware stores.” It is a preventive measure. “…we don’t sell the concentrate, but only a very diluted form, the ready-made products. These concentrations are up to 48 times lower than the range used in agricultural products.”
Switzerland’s largest retail company Migros will also stop selling products containing glyphosate. A Migros spokesperson said that they would begin as early as this week to remove the products from their shelves.
Robin Speronis had been living in an off-grid home for many years without incident, until she was interviewed by a local FOX affiliate in November of 2013. Shortly thereafter, the city of Cape Coral tagged a “notice to vacate” on her property, due to multiple code violations, all of which stem from the fact that her home isn’t connected to water, sewage, or the electrical grid.
The city has tried to argue that she is in violation of the International Property Maintenance Code for relying on rainwater and solar panels, instead of utilities.
Since that time, Speronis has been fighting the courts for her right live off the grid. Magistrate Harold Eskins recently ruled that she can live without using water or electricity, but she still has to be connected to these utilities no matter what.
Despite his ruling, Eskins admitted to the press that the code may be unfair, “Reasonableness and code requirements don’t always go hand-in-hand.” Despite his supposed sympathies, he still feels compelled to enforce the code.
The Business Insider published an interesting report this week highlighting some of the strange powers that Queen Elizabeth II has, although the royal family is presented as a purely ceremonial elite with no actual political power.
Among many strange powers, the report revealed that the queen owns “all unmarked swans in open water” as well as all the sturgeons, whales, and dolphins. These ordinances bear a grim similarity to how the Sherif of Nottingham owned all of the deer in Nottingham Forrest in the ancient tale of Robin Hood.
According to an article in Time, although this statute dates back to 1324 it “is still valid today, and sturgeons, porpoises, whales, and dolphins are recognised as ‘fishes royal’: when they are captured within 3 miles (about 5 km) of UK shores or wash ashore, they may be claimed on behalf of the Crown. Generally, when brought into port, a sturgeon is sold in the usual way, and the purchaser, as a gesture of loyalty, requests the honour of its being accepted by Elizabeth.”
Hundreds of years ago, the royalty of Great Britain were hell bent on world domination, like many other European nations at the time. After centuries of violence and conquest the British royalty were able to dominate most of the world through political and military force. It was said that “the sun never set on the British Empire” because there were so many areas throughout the world which the British had colonized that it was always daytime somewhere in an occupied territory of Britain. Even today the Queen of England’s real estate takes up 1/6 of the earth’s surface! That’s one family owning more than a quarter of all the land in the world while 85% of the human race owns no land at all! This is not what humanity is about, something is horribly wrong with this situation. The royal family may have the lion’s share of land to their name, but other elite families also have a large wealth of stolen property as well, which they have acquired through generations of conquest and protected using their phony environmental organizations.
Shocking proof that crisis actors, green screens, CGI, and paid propagandist are being used to fake worldwide events in order to scare people into giving up liberties, go to war, and create a one world government.
Anti-Israeli protesters have blocked the way of pro-Israel participants on the annual Israel Day Parade in New York, chanting slogans and calling for the dismantlement of the Zionist regime.
The protest took place when pro-Israeli marchers were parading down Fifth Avenue to celebrate the annual ceremony on Sunday.
Orthodox Jews, who do not believe in the existence of Tel Aviv regime, blocked their way despite tight police security for the parade.
The parade that has annually been held in New York since 1964, was met by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and members of New York’s Congressional delegation as well as those of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset.
Human rights monitor Amnesty International said earlier this year that the Israeli regime committed war crimes during the latest war on the besieged Gaza Strip.
Over 2,140 Palestinians, including a large number of women, children, and the elderly, were killed in the 50 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, which began early in July 2014.
