Publisher's Summary

A chilling exposé of corporate corruption and government cover-ups, this account of a nationwide child-trafficking and pedophilia ring in the United States tells a sordid tale of corruption in high places. The scandal originally surfaced during an investigation into Omaha, Nebraska's failed Franklin Federal Credit Union that went beyond the Midwest, ultimately to Washington, DC. Implicating businessmen, senators, major media corporations, the CIA, and even the venerable Boys Town organization, this extensively researched report includes firsthand interviews with key witnesses and explores a controversy that has received scant media attention.

Excellent and Honest

One of the reviews I read said the Author had a nasaly voice. I was hesitant to purchase this book, because stuff like that can really irritate me, but it turns out he has a very nice voice.

This was one of the longest books I've listened to and it never lost my interest.

He does say, "quote unquote" a little bit too much, but it really didn't bother me.

Why Do Citizens Trust Govt At All Anymore?!?

After scandal after scandal. Govt corruption revealed pon a daily basis. A history of assassinations; JFK, RFK, VINCE FOSTER, DC Madam Deborah Palfrey, Michael Hastings, Gary Webb, the FBI being found guilty of conspiracy leading to the assassination of MLK in a civil suit by King's family, the massive # of witnesses murdered surrounding the Warren Report & the hit on JFK. Operation Gladio, Operation Phoenix(aka The Phoenix Program), manufacturing and committing terrorism. And producing false flags like Pearl Harbour (moving the Pacific fleet from its protective W.Coast location to sitting ducks at Pearl Harbour AFTER the US had deciphered the Japanese encrypted code and knew Jap war planes were on their way with a planned attack). The Gulf of Tonkin false flag (US ships were never attacked by anyone, much less the North Vietnamese). Or lets not forget the false flag of Weapons of Mass Destruction lie to justify an invasion of Iraq (which then lead to the murder of Dr Davud Kelly, the UN's weapons inspector who stated their were no WMDs after travelling to Iraq) Then the invasion of Afghanistan to go after a handful of terrorists that were working with the CIA, and who cares about the innocent citizens of a country that'll had nothing to do with 9/11. Time to rethink what we're told is 'reality' by our loving & caring GOVTs!

PEDOPHILIA AND POWER - IT CONTINUES TO THIS DAY

This is an up-dated re-telling of the original pedophilia scandal and coverup that occurred in Omaha, NE, years ago. The coverup involved powerful people, including the publisher of the newspaper, politicians and police. The perverts extended all the way to the Bush Sr White House - and then far beyond. Most of these men came from our 'most honored' positions in the U.S. They were men of wealth and power, who hid their filthy secrets from the rest of the world, while flying young children to special 'parties' - and murdering any who revealed their secret. Worst of all, the victims came from 'Boys Town', supposedly a safe refuge for young children, managed by a priest and funded by his religious and powerful local masters.

More of these stores are coming to light - Pizzagate is just one small purveyor of this depravity. Children as young as babies are used in debaucheries. Even worse, it has been estimated that up to 90% of our politicians and employees in high positions in the U.S. Govt are involved in these activities - including many past Presidents - and their wives!

Just try and trust your government after this.

This book will make you see everything differently. Check out "The Devil's Chessboard" next. The author did a great job reading it as well.

Quote unquote.

I’m 30 minutes into this book and have heard the phrase “quote unquote” about 6,000 times. If I wasn’t so fascinated by Franklin, I would have ditched this book almost immediately.

Worst Narration!!

A couple hours in and I can’t take another minute of this narrator! He has a horrible nasal, grinding dialect that’s hard to describe. It’s so annoying since I think it’d be a good book. I listened to the sample a few times before buying. Don’t be fooled by it! If you really want to know what’s in this book read it. Do not waste a credit trying to listen. Authors should stick to writing and leave the narration to the pros.

A Sad Example of our Legal System

This is an amazing piece of research and a horrifying look into the self serving and self protecting monster that is the US legal system.

astonishing!

this was very well-researched and absolutely astonishing and appalling to read. It did go quite a bit long however with all the very intricate weavings of deception and denial and sidestepping. And it was hard to follow from time to time. However this level of research is not Light reading and not meant to be. I recommend it for any serious student of both politics and the horrors of child pronography rings. If it weren't so well researched and documented, it would be absolutely unbelievable.

Incredible

This is a must read. Something like that cannot happen in America if we don’t stand for it. The travesty of justice that occurred to an American citizen who maintained her innocence should scare the **** out of everyone.

A waste of a credit

First of all, I thought this was going to be a different book on the same subject, boy was I wrong. The author shouldn't have also been the narrator, he must know that he doesn't have the voice for it, his voice is better suited for yelling at teenage cahiers at your local McDonald's for giving him Coke when he clearly said he wanted Dr. Pepper. I tried to go on listening to a very lackluster journey of a man who's trying to crack this huge conspiracy all the while pretty exclusively saying "quote unquote." The reason why I stopped listening to this only an hour and some change into it was because the author/narrator/badboy misread his own material and was too bullheaded to record it again, you know, the right way.
